Secrets of Summerland: The Complete Summerland Stories

Lucy Carson isn’t really looking forward to her honeymoon in Summerland. Can she still call it a honeymoon if her fiance left her at the altar? Probably not. To make matters worse, the bed and breakfast won’t let her keep her reservation now that she’s single.

But the residents of Summerland, the strangely idyllic and drowsy oceanside town, are happy to have her come to visit. And in a town where all the residents are young and stunningly beautiful, there’s plenty to enjoy. Things might start looking up for Lucy with neighbors like these, and maybe Summerland is the perfect place for her. If only it didn’t feel…too good to be true.

When Summerland reveals an unexpected dark side at the summer festival, Lucy discovers the truth of the town is too big and impossible to be believed.

Is it time to pack up and return home, or are the benefits of Summerland, and the men she’s met, worth the risk of staying?

Secrets of Summerland includes the entire Summerland Series as a complete standalone, including the bonus short Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice

Disaster Zone Jones

Tornados, sinkholes, lightning strikes, explosions, a drain pipe full of bees… I’ve been there though them all. But it’s not my fault!

My “Dizzy, time to get the heck out of dodge” senses are well-honed, so can you blame a gal for pounding pavement when a herd of hunks are hot on her trail?

Okay, maybe you can. Maybe it’s your dream to get tackled by a heaping helping of beefcake; hopelessly pinned beneath them, at the mercy of multiple sets of hands and lips and eyes trapping you and demanding attention. Me? I just want to make it through the day without doing too much damage.

Seriously, it’s not my fault!

You see, I’m cursed to always be cursed. Somebody wants to get revenge on you when I’m in town? Well TOUGH LUCK because they’re getting revenge on me instead! Thank you for that weekend of all-foods-are-extra-spicy, unknown stranger. No, that’s okay, person-who-tried-to-make-someone-else-unable-to-wear-clothes-ever-again, I don’t mind a fine breeze between my lady bits. And to you, asshole casserole who tried to literally kill me last week? Well… you can get bent. That’s honestly just rude.

Usually my curse comes with a side of disaster, and after really, really hurting more than one person… well… I’ve been on a never-ending, cross-country, don’t-look-back-just-keep-on-running-away tour for pretty much forever. Sure, it’s lonely, but never setting down roots means never getting caught, or killed. At least I’ve got my furry best friend Aria-don’t know what I’d do without her.

Per usual, my hotel just happened to burn down this morning so it looks like I’d best get to gettin’ while the gettin’s still good, ya get it? Just one itsy-bitsy-teensie-weensie-purple-haired-and-no-bikini problem…. I may have accidentally sort of kind of tied myself to those hunks I mentioned earlier and may or may not literally be unable to go anywhere without at least one of them. Oops! And maybe I sort of kind of like them enough to not want them to get murdered in my superstorm of chaos. Double oops.

Sigh. Friggin’ Tuesdays, am I right?

This is a medium burn paranormal reverse harem romance with explicit scenes of violence, sex, and abuse that may be triggering for some. There is mild M/M included in this book and will progress as the story does. All sexual situations in this book are consensual. It is the first book in a series within an overall world epic, but it does not end in a cliffhanger. Hope happily for now is your jam! Please be aware that this is recommended for readers 18+

The War and Deceit Series

‘My name is 625.
At least, that’s the number branded into my skin, the only identity I have.
My real name, whatever it was, was stripped from me when I was sold into slavery at age eight.
I am now 20, and no more than property, my only purpose working in the palace.
Until the day I meet him.’

The Elves and Humans have been at war for millennia.
No one even remembers why or how it started.
When a slave girl is sent to clean in a forbidden part of the castle, she stumbles across a secret which could cost her life.
A captured Elf, sworn enemy of the Human people, forced into making Elven weaponry to fight against his own kin.

Will they see past the differences between their races and help each other to survive?

Or will their union only serve to stoke the fires of hatred?

This book is intended for audiences 18+ and contains some scenes of violence that some may find distressing.

Keepers of the Talisman

Demon sightings, missing girls, and dead witches.

As a paranormal investigator, Rayne is no stranger to the unknown. But when she embarks on her latest case, her life takes a turn toward the magical.

An ancient talisman and four sexy as hell Magical Keepers all but land in her lap, changing not only who she is, but what she will become. Rayne soon learns her newly acquired type of magic is sought out and destroyed. It might just seal her fate.
Caught in between her old life and learning to be a witch, Rayne will be forced to decide between ending a curse or walking away and risking the lives of herself and others. Toussaint, Leif, Aedan, and Maceo are just as unprepared to become Rayne’s Keepers as she is to embrace her magical powers.

Knowing she is the key to breaking the curse, can Rayne master her magic and fix what was broken?

The Secrets of Shifters 

My goddess has endless aspirations for my future.

I just don’t think tricking the Prince of Hell to fall in love with me was one of them…

Three sinfully sexy hellhound shifters plot the Prince’s murder while using me as their pawn to earn the trust of the royals. It’s a fool proof plan really.

Too bad it’s what they don’t know that will kill them.

Because I’m no ordinary shifter. My secrets are the deadly kind.

For now, I’ll be their greatest asset.

But in the end, I’ll be their imminent demise.

Emerald Lakes

Growing up in Emerald Lakes, population six hundred and eighty-two, had been safe and comfortable. Running my own magic shop and making a living off my green witchcraft, I have no complaints. Sure, there’s my ex, who never understood the word ‘no’, but there’s also the lovable and eccentric townspeople who feel more like one huge extended family, and let’s not forget my boy-crazed Gran who keeps us all on our toes.

…But something has apparently been missing, and the stars take it upon themselves to correct the problem, dropping four sexy men at my door. Well, not literally. They move into the apartment above my shop, so I’m their landlord. Drawn in by these mages who blew into town on a work assignment, a whole different kind of magic starts to grow between us, but my powers are doing things they shouldn’t, and there’s also a pesky prophecy to unravel.

Strange, unnatural things are brewing in Emerald Lakes, and I can’t ignore the sinking suspicion that something life-changing is headed my way.

Discovering a whole new world of magic, I can only hope I don’t lose myself in the madness.

This is a full-length romance novel. There is MM content. It ends on a cliffhanger and contains brief references to domestic violence and other themes that readers may find triggering.

The Yaga’s Riders

As with most beginnings, it started with death.

When I had nothing left to lose, I traveled to the hut in the woods; the one no one dared approach. The witch who lived there recognized the darkness in my soul and took me under her wing—to witness her reign of terror firsthand and eventually, to inherit her legacy as my own.

Now I’m the monster they fear; the one humans avoid at all costs. In this welcome isolation, I’ve attempted to forget my past and the future that was taken from me.

Until three men appear, somehow able to break through my protective wards and see me in my true form. While resistant to their intrusion, I recognize they may be the ones I’ve been waiting for—the ones I need to ascend to my full power.

Too bad I would rather grind their bones than invite them in.

But something is mysteriously devouring the forest, and I suspect the threat may be the same one I barely escaped many moons ago. If it is, he will find me a more worthy opponent than the last time we met.

I am the Yaga and I may be broken, but my edges are sharp.

The Yaga’s Riders is based on the folklore of Baba Yaga, with creative liberties taken.

Rise of the Witch is the first book in a steamy, paranormal romance saga featuring mysterious forces in magical woods, a legendary witch, and the three men destined to find her.

Darkness Rising

“Friends are like condoms. They protect you when things get hard.”

That’s what my five drool-worthy male best friends said when we were younger. But that was before we found out our souls were fated and that we were destined for more.

I don’t know if there’s a condom out there that’s strong enough to protect us from what’s coming our way now.

In the midst of natural disasters wreaking havoc on earth, we must claw our way out of the pit of grief we find ourselves in after a tragic loss, because another realm is counting on us to save it from a great evil.

The same evil that apparently killed us in a previous life, and is lurking closely in the shadows of this one.

Welcome to the disaster that is my life. Grab a seat and buckle up. Because no way am I letting us die in this life.


Author Note: Desolation is a novel that touches on some dark themes such as molestation at a young age and rape which may be triggering for some readers. This book has a 18+ warning.

Grey Witch 

Don’t summon demons drunk… How is that not the number one piece of advice in demonology textbooks?

Now I have a dead boss, a detective determined to pin me for the murder, and a vindictive demon trapped inside of a cat’s body is currently living in my bathtub.

Trying to prove my innocence while also dealing with some issues with an ex and his stupidly attractive fae friend isn’t proving a walk in the park either, but nothing is ever easy for a witch cursed with bad luck.

White magic can’t save me. Black magic will taint my soul. So what’s an unlucky witch like me to do?

-Urban Fantasy Reverse Harem-

The Vampire House War

One taste, and I’d never be the same…

I run a highly successful restaurant. I’m part of the local wolf pack. I work out. I date. I have friends. My life looks, and sounds perfect.

But once a month I leave it all behind, and run to him. Except, the minute I leave, the only thing I remember is the desperation that drives me back to his arms, time and time again.

My brother doesn’t know what I do, or where I go. He knows some of my secrets but not to the full extent. Lydia does, but Gray doesn’t know about Lydia. It’s a mess.

When I’m drawn into the world of the vampires, where four Houses rule everything, I quickly discover their world is not all it seems. It’s dark, and gory, fraught with complex relationships, and vengeful games that span years.

I have to lean on someone. Although I’m pretty sure I won’t survive them. It’s not my war to fight, but my heart will be its first casualty. My name is Faryn, and this is my story.

The Bitten Wolf is the first book in The Vampire House War. It is a fast, spicy read and our leading lady will not be forced into choosing who she gives her love to. She’ll probably be keeping them all. The vampires are a bloodthirsty and petty lot, so there’s plenty of blood and violence, trigger warning also includes stalking and deception.

The Vampire House War and is a shared universe with Cedar Mountain but this is all about the VAMPIRES. There is a crossover of characters but the MC focus is very different.

Complete Series PNR RH 26

Wonderland: Chronicles of Blood

Mal is a Fixer, a child raised and trained to “fix” broken fairy tales by an organization the Fixers refer to as DeadEnd. Because, once you enter a fairy tale, there’s no getting out.

Mal has been assigned Wonderland. You know Wonderland, the place Alice visited as a child. Wonderland, with a Mad Hatter and a Cheshire Cat. Wonderland, who has consumed twenty-seven Fixers before Mal and has been dubbed “toxic” by the Operators of DeadEnd. But Wonderland needs to be fixed. It’s been toxic so long that every Wonderland story in the real world is being transformed into something entirely not child friendly.

After training for eleven years and studying every re-telling of Lewis Carroll’s classic, Mal leaves the world behind and enters her very own dead-end fairy tale. Well… everything is certainly twisted. The people are broken; the Bloody Queens’ reign has thrown the world into turmoil and upset the balance; and the places are, quite frankly, mad.

At least she found a few mostly-sane, entirely gorgeous men to help her along the way. Help her re-write this fairy tale back to its original wonder. And perhaps help her build a life in Wonderland for when she succeeds – because she is determined to do what the other twenty-seven have not been able to.

Everything seemed pretty straight forward, and going pretty smoothly, until she realized the fairy tale she’d been sent in to fix is actually infected by another…

The box set includes a novella-length exclusive content!!

**This is a series of full-length, new adult, reverse harem, dark romance novels with a ‘why choose’ ending, meaning the main character gets a happily ever after with more than one man. It contains magic, demons, shifters, nonsense, explicit sex scenes, blood, murder. There are references to past emotional abuse. This is a MMFMM book with a STRONG focus on the woman (although there is some MM and MMF in here, too).

Lost Fae

One minute, I’m just an innocent, brave, beautiful young woman chasing down an evil vampire. The next, three sexy Fae jerks abduct me from my life of slaying vamps and saving puppies.

Okay, okay. I’m not particularly innocent. The beautiful part is really dependent on the lighting. And some people say ‘brave’, some people say ‘stupid’. Whatcha gonna do? Everybody’s got haters, even the toughest Hunter in Washington, D.C.

I’ve got amnesia, and my memories all begin five years ago. So I don’t remember these cocky Fae princes, with the smoldering eyes and painfully good looks.

But they definitely remember me. They say I’m the true heir to the throne. But these sexy jerks are hiding some kind of secret from me. There’s trouble back in Faerieland (They hate it when I say that).

Someone stole my tiara right off my head, erased my memories and shoved me through the portal to your world. And it’s time for me to find out why, with these powerful Fae males by my side—no matter how unhappy we are to be stuck together.

Darkness Rising

“Friends are like condoms. They protect you when things get hard.”

That’s what my five drool-worthy male best friends said when we were younger. But that was before we found out our souls were fated and that we were destined for more.

Arbor Falls

All I wanted was to find answers to who I was.

No one knew who had abandoned the gray-eyed baby with fiery red hair and a cry loud enough to make a man’s nuts retract.

I moved to Arbor Falls to find myself. Little did I know I’d be thrown into a world I didn’t know existed. A world with wolves at each other’s throats and enough pack politics to make my head spin.

Then there’s the fact that I have more than one mate. Not all of them accept me because there’s one gigantic problem… I’m not what they expected.

Arbor Falls series and is a reverse harem wolf shifter romance told in multiple POVs. It contains MM, mature scenes, adult language.

Blue Summer

They spoke of the blue skinned Zayed in hushed whispers. They said we should fear them.
Fear was born of ignorance though, and I realized how wrong they all were.
Little did I know that my first encounter with The Zayed would not only change my opinion, but change my life forever.
Kidnapped for what the sorcerer thought I could give him, only to escape and be gifted with the very thing he sought. Now, I had to figure out my role in all this and not only save myself, but possibly the entire Zayed Community.

Feral Mates

I was not their intended target.

But still, I’m the one left dealing with the consequences.

I was already an outcast before that fateful night at the bar—the night a rejected alpha sank his teeth into my neck and set the course of my fate straight towards hell itself.

Because now only one of two things will happen.

Either I’ll become a monster like them, a beast of the night that can shift into a giant, murderous wolf.

Or I’m going to die.

I don’t know which fate is worse.

At first I hate them. My captors. My abductors.

Elon, the abandoned.

Teague, the banished.

Roman, the rejected.

I might not have been their intended target, but when the alpha who hired them comes to collect … suddenly, they’re not ready to hand me over. We must find their original mark, or else the hunters will become the hunted.

And I’ll be the one who suffers the most.

By the time the next full moon rises, my old life is as good as dead…if the mistakes of my new pack don’t catch up to them and kill us all first.

The Last Shifter

Four renegade wolf shifters. An innocent young woman trapped in a web of lies. When their fates collide, sparks will fly…

Diagnosed with a rare terminal illness, I’ve spent over half my life in the Strand Corporation’s state-of-the-art treatment facility. I keep my chin up and do everything the doctors order, praying one day I’ll walk out of here in perfect health.

But when that day finally arrives, it’s nothing like I hoped it would be. Instead, it comes in a hail of gunfire, along with four distractingly handsome men who say they’re here to rescue me.

On the run with these mysterious men and hunted by the very people I believed were my caretakers, I begin to realize nothing is what I thought it was.

Turns out, I’m not really sick.

I’m not completely human either…

The Last Vocari

Slay, sleep, eat, repeat.

The polished metal stakes strapped to Rose’s thighs have pierced the hearts of so many vampires she’s lost count. The foul creatures have even given her a name for her troubles: The Black Rose.

She’s flattered, really, but her infamy has brought a lot of unwanted attention. The psycho bloodsucking fiends are piece of pie, but when three very familiar monsters step back into Rose’s life, she’s forced to re-evaluate everything she stands for.

She knows them. Or, at least, she knew them when they were still human. Once, the three of them were the most important people in her world, but that world went up in smoke a long time ago.

Too bad she owes them a debt. One that she must pay even if doing so means she’ll have to confront her worst fear; that she may not be entirely human, either.

Can she trust them? Or is she destined to become the very thing she has vowed to spend her life hunting?

Warning: If you are offended by bad language, turned off by violence, or cringe at adult themes then this series is not for you! If, however, you enjoy a main character who curses like a trucker, stabs first and asks questions later, and isn’t afraid to tell a man exactly what she wants from him, then you’ve found your next read.

Wicked Monsters

Get the complete, fast burn, Wicked Monsters series as one fantastic set. Meet Aisha’s wolves, vampires, human sub, and even a demon-gargoyle in her wild harem!

One girl, five monsters, one hell of a ride.

Taken from the Pit where she was raised, Aisha believes all vampires are horrifying… Then she finds herself in Dashiell’s possession.

Powerful, handsome, and charismatic, Dashiell is not what she thought her master would be.

His dark desires draw her into his world, and things heat up between them.

But with a demon gargoyle scratching at her window, and wolves sniffing at the door, Aisha might not stay in the vampire’s grasp for long.

Danger and temptation surround her on all sides, but Aisha is determined to fight them all.

Crystal Lake Pack

After being expelled from college due to some fantastical circumstances, I come home and find my life has been a lie. As in, I’m not human. Never was.

I’m a shifter. A wolf. My mom fell in love with my dad and ran away from her pack, but they’ve come to bring me back, to show me the life I missed. It’s wrought with danger, multiple mates, and forbidden romance…and the worst thing about it all?

I think I like it.

I think, missing wolves aside, I want pack life.

But I’ll never get a normal pack life as long as the Crystal Lake pack and its alpha are being plagued by a mystical, crazy death priest, so I choose to do what I can to help my future family. I might be the only hope this pack has at survival, you see.

Want to know a secret?

I’m not just a shifter, either. To fight a death priest, I’ll have to meet him head-to-head with magic.

Crystal Lake Pack: The Complete Series includes Limitless, Undying, and Evermore, and has been rewritten from the trilogy’s original release. It is now in first-person point of view. This is a slow-burn, why choose romance. This collection also includes a never-before-seen steamy novella detailing the night of the claiming, along with her firsts with each of the guys.

Author R.L. Caulder #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself…

I am a native Floridian but you’d never guess it by my pale ginger complexion! I am engaged and getting married in August, 2020. I have a full-time adult job as a property manager of rentals but I hope to become a full time author within the next few years! I have two fur babies, a ginger kitty named “MeowMeow” (My fiance named her) and a staffordshire pitbull named “Winrey”.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I have always had a passion for reading, but honestly never thought I had it in me to write a book! The fear of putting out something that just flopped is what stopped me from doing it prior to now. It has been a struggle to push through that mentality of not feeling as if my work is good enough, while completing my first book.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I don’t even know where any of my ideas come from! I was sitting on my couch one day when the idea for Desolation struck me, so I began typing out a small outline in the notes app on my iPhone. It only grew from there and before I knew it, I had wayyyy too many notes to keep up with and had to transfer it to a google doc. The characters and the world had my mind in their clutches and they wouldn’t let go!

What are you working on now?

Book two, “Detonate” in my Darkness Rising Series! I also have a pending co-write on the side.

Do you have any quirks while working?

I have to be listening to music in the background and the genre changes as my scenes do! I feel so much inspiration while I write from the emotions certain songs give me.

What are your hopes for the future?

To become a full time author by the time I’m ready to start having kids!

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

I’m still quite new myself, but I would absolutely say, make sure you are surrounding yourself with people who want you to genuinely succeed. You will doubt yourself enough, without having the whispers of negative people in your ear.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

I’m not sure I have many followers yet, but thank you to everyone who has supported me on my journey of putting the voices in my head onto paper! It’s been a whirlwind, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
