The truth is meant to set you free… but not my truth.

Mine has sent me deeper and darker, feeding my need for revenge. I want blood for those who wronged me and my family. And my so-called truth is ripping me apart, in a way lies never could.

Everyone else has moved on, but I can’t. Not until someone pays.

And it seems that fate is on my side this time, because the hellion girl from the graveyard is going to be my saving grace… and provide me with everything I crave.

The pain.

The vengeance.

The blood.

She has no idea what she’s been dragged into, but she’s going to regret every step she’s taken to get here.

Stella Doukas isn’t like any other girl I’ve encountered before.

She’s fierce, determined, and much stronger than I anticipated.

I might have met my match.

And that is not a good thing…

Blog Tour – The Bratva’s Heir by Jane Henry and Sophie Lark

She doesn’t know it yet, but Clare is mine.
Mine to train. Mine to protect. And mine to control…

The Bratva’s Heir, an all-new standalone in Underworld Kings Series by USA Today bestselling author Jane Henry and Sophie Lark is now available!

Prison’s a dark, bleak place.
But Clare brings me light.
My sweet little bird will be my ticket to freedom.
The first time I saw her, I had to have her.
From her big, dark eyes, to the curves she can’t conceal…
The way she can only hold my gaze so long.
The way she shivers every time I move inside these chains.
And most of all, the way she’ll bend the rules when I order her to…
I know a natural submissive when I see one.
Her degrees and titles don’t change who she is: a woman who will bend to my will.
She doesn’t know it yet, but Clare is mine.
Mine to train. Mine to protect. And mine to control…

Excerpt


“I’m nothing special,” she says, bluntly.
I don’t know why she’s so intent on considering herself plain—she may not have the
obvious flashiness of a certain sort of woman, but Clare’s beauty is all the more powerful for its
subtlety. The delicacy and luminescence of her skin, like the slightest touch would bruise it…
those large, dark eyes, so liquid that they almost seem tearful…
Her fragility makes me want to do terrible things to her.
And yet, I almost want to protect her, too… like a little bird that could fit in the hollow of
my hand… a nightingale, singing only for me…
“Don’t be modest. You’ve seen the way men look at you. Tell the truth, Clare.”
She bites the edge of her lip, irritated at my use of her first name, and at my commanding
tone.
Still, I see the way that tone takes hold of her, compelling her to answer me.
“Men always stare at women,” she says.
“They stare at you more… how could they not?”
“Mr. Rogov,” she says, sharply. “I told you, we’re not here to discuss me.”
“I remember,” I say.
But I think she will discuss herself if I push her. Because no matter how hard Ms. Nightingale
tries to be stern, to maintain professionalism, I see the truth behind her thin façade. I see how she
flinches when I bark, how she squirms under my stare. How her eyes flit up to meet mine when I
use a gentler tone, and how her cheeks flush pink when I compliment her. Clare has been raised
to respect authority. To crave it, even…

Review – Dangerous Temptation by Giana Darling

58504358. sy475

Dangerous Temptation; Dark Dream #1 
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: October 26, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Taboo/Age Gap/Dark Romance

Author: Giana Darling

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A taboo romance that also brought tears to my eyes!!

First of all, this is my first Giana Darling romance and WOW what a book to dive into. Secondly, I LOVE the entirety of the Morelli and Constantine worlds and Giana has made a fantastic contribution to the Midnight Dynasty.

Now, most taboo romance books I’ve read are sizzling hot with forbidden themes and dark undertones and of course taboo tropes. However, this is the first one that brought tears to my eyes multiple times. Seriously, over and over again I was wiping my eyes and then in the next chapter I was back diving into the darkness that was this story. Holy Smokes!! The highs and lows of this story was like nothing else!!

Tiernan is an evil Morelli, although he calls himself Tiernan McTiernan. Don’t worry, his name makes sense in the story. He is forbidden temptation, he is the dangling apple hanging from the tree in Eden. He has nefarious intentions and is up to no good. Yeah, he’s dark and delicious all wrapped up in a smoking hot package, but then he displays these sides of vulnerability and ugh….he’s even hotter. I am totally eating that apple all the way to the core. Does he have issues, of course he does, that’s why he has nefarious plans, but that’s also why I love this trope. A seriously bad guy that can be reformed, am I right?!

Bianca Belcante is sassy, young, and basically the matriarch for her household because her mother doesn’t look after her or her little brother, Brando. (BTW, he is the sweet, tear inducing, you are going to need tissues, adorableness in this story.) Bianca will do anything for her brother and this is how she ends up living under the roof of one Tiernan Morelli-I mean McTiernan, after her mother dies. Does Bianca also have issues…oh yeah, but this is also why she works well with Tiernan. They challenge one another and basically bring out the worst and the best in each other.

This is only the first part of their story and it ends on a cliffhanger…gah…I need more of their sinful story now!

Synopsis:

He arrives all dressed in black. Diamond cufflinks. A watch on his tanned wrist that cost more than we would ever see in a lifetime of work. He carries a single red rose for my mother.

Months later, Tiernan Morelli lays red roses on my mother’s grave. That same day, he tells me that he is my new guardian.

I should have known from the very start that he had more in common with the thorns than the rose. Now I know the truth: I’m a pawn in his dangerous game of revenge. I was too young and naive. Now it’s too late to save myself from his clutches.

I belong to him.

http://mybook.to/RiotAct

USA Today Bestselling Author, Callie Hart, delivers a twisted and edgy new dark romance tale, featuring a girl with nothing left to lose and a broken boy with a heart as black as his soul.

Want something? Pax will take it from you.

Love something? Pax will destroy it.

Love him? Heaven help you. You’d have to be the stupidest person to walk the face of the earth.

PAX

I don’t do complicated. I sure as hell don’t do love. With graduation in sight, I’ve made it almost four years at Wolf Hall without getting tangled up in BS with girls.
I especially want nothing to do with her:
Presley. Maria. Witton. Chase.
The timid little mouse with the red hair, who can’t even look my way without hyperventilating. She’s nothing to me. Beautiful, sure, but I’ve had plenty of beautiful women.
I’m perfectly content ignoring her…
…until her life is suddenly in my hands.

PRES

I’ve loved him from the moment I laid eyes on him.
The cruel, inked anarchist of Riot House.
He’s wicked, and he’s cold, and there’s nothing good left in him.
I fear him almost as much as I crave him.
With only a few weeks left until graduation, all I have to do is keep my head down, and then I’ll be free; I can leave Mountain Lakes and my obsession with Pax Davis in my rearview mirror.
But the demons I’ve been hiding for years now are growing restless…
…and Pax is thing that will keep them at bay.

This is not an act of kindness.
Not an act of love.
Not an act of forgiveness.
You’ll find no redemption here.
This is the final riot.

ACT ACCORDINGLY.

RIOT ACT is a 137,000-word standalone book in the Crooked Sinners Series and does not end on a cliffhanger. This book contains dark content that may be considered a trigger for some readers, and as such is recommended for readers 17+

Review – Wrath by Coralee June

Wrath (Malice Mafia Book 2) by [CoraLee June]

Wrath; Malice Mafia #2 
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: October 21, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Dark/Mafia/Reverse Harem Romance

Author: Coralee June

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Love is hard. Love to three men is even harder, especially strong, controlling, slightly deranged men. I need to say I LOVE Coralee’s deranged men, they are the absolute best!!!!

Juliet is literally withering away taking care of Nick, William, and Anthony. Having time for her Grams, her schooling, much less herself is taking its toll. She will never choose between the men she’s given her heart too, she loves them all differently, yet also equally, but she may lose herself trying to do it all…sound familiar ladies?!

Wrath is full of Coralee’s dark humor, which is one of the biggest reasons why I not only love Coralee books, but especially fell in love with Malice. Laughing while darkness is raining down around everyone, I’ve discovered, is my new favorite joy in life.

Anthony and Juliet together still bring the best combination of dark laughs for well, reasons…his madness is weirdly adorable and endearing. He is the heart of the brothers and even with his morbid fascinations, he’s just darn likable. However, be prepared to have your heart a little broken this time around…I won’t say more, but with laughter comes some tears.

A close second to my lovely Anthony is Nick’s inner monologue. He of course wants to murder everyone, he has zero patience, and honestly, he’s kind of adorable in his controlling, over-the-top, can’t live without Juliet, overbearing ways. I know, total caveman, but his growly ways are really hot and sweet in a stalkery-lover way. Will his controlling ways eventually ruin everything? Perhaps, but a man can learn…right?

Now, William…what has happened to this man? Perhaps it’s being stuck in the middle and always having to take care of everybody and everything, but William, my heart breaks a bit for the abuse his emotions take, but he’s not innocent in how he gets treated. He pushes and pokes and asks for the beating of his emotions too. This man can only push so much as well before he eventually breaks. He is the most like Juliet in wanting to take care of everyone, but unlike Juliet, he’s silent about it. Juliet likes his silent moments, but is it enough for him?

This group is no where near their happy ending. Working on their dynamic and how to love one another, all still as brothers, and as one family is still a work in progress.

Wrath is full of darkness, a new villain is introduced, and a continued love story is still flowing that made this book UNPUTDOWNABLE!! Coralee never fails to wow and amaze me.

About the Author:
CD Reiss has a long history of aimlessly moving from place to place. She finally settled in Los Angeles where she earned a master’s degree in cinematic writing from USC. After graduation, she ultimately failed to have one line of dialog put on film, but stayed in Hollywood out of spite.
Since screenwriting was going nowhere, she switched to novels. Soon after, luck arrived with a complete set of baggage. She now has over two dozen titles under her belt. Two of those are NY Times Bestsellers and a handful more are USA Today bestsellers. Her audiobooks have won APA Audie Awards and Earphones Awards, swelling her ego to an inhuman size.
She lives with her family, two cats and her long-suffering husband in a small Hollywood house that’s been outfitted with huge, ego-sized doorways.

EXCERPT

“What do you want from me?” I force out as his grip only gets tighter.

He smiles once more, but this time, there’s no amusement in it. Only malice.

“I want to hurt you. Punish you. Ruin you. Break you,” he hisses, almost as if he’s actually talking to himself. “I want to make you cry, beg, plead with me for mercy despite the fact that you know it’ll never come.”

My head spins as I try to register his words and the seriousness behind each and every threat.

“That’s some heavy shit for someone you just met.”

“You have no idea who you are, do you, Doukas?”

Blurb:

The truth is meant to set you free… but not my truth.

Mine has sent me deeper and darker, feeding my need for revenge. I want blood for those who wronged me and my family. And my so-called truth is ripping me apart, in a way lies never could.

Everyone else has moved on, but I can’t. Not until someone pays.

And it seems that fate is on my side this time, because the hellion girl from the graveyard is going to be my saving grace… and provide me with everything I crave.

The pain.

The vengeance.

The blood.

She has no idea what she’s been dragged into, but she’s going to regret every step she’s taken to get here.

Stella Doukas isn’t like any other girl I’ve encountered before.

She’s fierce, determined, and much stronger than I anticipated.

I might have met my match.

And that is not a good thing…

Review – The Bratva’s Heir by Jane Henry and Sophie Lark

57010166

The Bratva’s Heir; Underworld Kings 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: October 15, 2021

Genre/Tropes: D/s/Dark/Mafia Romance

Author: Jane Henry and Sophie Lark

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A very powerful personality mixed with a soft submissive….the dynamic in this bratva novel was quite fascinating and while D/s isn’t a new trope for me, the thrill of an escaped convict pursing his innocence while his normal life isn’t exactly innocent per say, The Bratva’s Heir turned out to be quite the page turner.

Constantine Rogov is heir to the US Russian mafia. He lives a life of corruption and crime, so the fact that he’s in jail shouldn’t be a surprise. It’s actually the conviction itself that has Constantine upset and wanting to clear his name. When Claire Nightingale is sent to psychoanalyze him Constantine takes matters into his own hands, turns the tables on the young doctor, and basically “Harley Quinns” her over to the Dark side of thinking.

Claire Nightingale is a correctional Psychologist who is still learning and building her psychiatry business. Working at the prison is her way of giving back to a broken society, but she never thought her patient, Constantine, would be quite the trouble he ended up being.

I don’t know if Stockholm Syndrome is quite the right term, considering they didn’t spend a ton of time together before Claire became fascinated with Constantine, but this is the road they fall down together.  Attraction to an abductor and the abductee taking full advantage of it.

Constantine wants to find retribution for being wrongfully locked up and having Claire by his side is his ace in the hole, but he also begins falling for the woman who should just be a pawn.

Claire should know better than to fall for a patient. As a doctor of the mind, she knows all the pitfalls and tricks, but she can’t stop the landslide into the madness. Constantine interrogates her mind, her body, her soul and she’s weak when it comes to him. However, when the facts begin building up she no longer believes he’s mad and instead begins helping him. What began as madness might not be madness afterall.

The Bratva’s Heir is thrilling, intoxicating, and very steamy.

Synopsis:

Worlds collide in a brand-new mafia romance by Sophie Lark and Jane Henry.

A stand-alone novel in the Underworld Kings series

Prison’s a dark, bleak place.

But Clare brings me light.

My sweet little bird will be my ticket to freedom.

The first time I saw her, I had to have her.

From her big, dark eyes, to the curves she can’t conceal…

The way she can only hold my gaze so long.

The way she shivers every time I move inside these chains.

And most of all, the way she’ll bend the rules when I order her to…

I know a natural submissive when I see one.

Her degrees and titles don’t change who she is: a woman who will bend to my will.

She doesn’t know it yet, but Clare is mine.

Mine to train. Mine to protect. And mine to control…

Review – Wicked Knight by Tracy Lorraine

56157584. sy475

Wicked Knight; Knights Ridge Empire #1 
(# 1 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: October 21, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Dark/Bully/Mafia Romance

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Darkly hot, darkly dirty, darkly wicked!! These Wicked Knights are down right dirty and delicious and Stella…girrrlllll…she’s amazing, I love her so hard!

For all the Stella fans, her book is finally here and does not disappoint!! Wicked Knight is Tracy’s darkest and dirtiest book yet. It’s absolutely fantastic!

Seb and Stella drew me in right from the get go when I read the short novella (it’s currently free and I highly recommend reading it). Seb carries dark secrets and while we don’t know what they are right away, he hates Stella right from the get go.

Stella is not your ordinary teenager. She’s been brought up learning how to defend herself with daily training in weapons and fighting. Having a boy like Seb dislike her is the least of her problems as she’s used to being the new girl and dealing with jerkholes just like him at every new school she attends.

Her feisty attitude is addictive and I love her girl positive thinking. The few girls Stella does befriend…well, for Lorraine fans, I just say I was jumping for joy to see one of them.  This girl group is the best Tracy has put together yet.

As for Seb and his band of brothers, not only are they hot, but they also are a bunch I can hardly wait to flush out and get to know better as this series goes along. As Stella calls them, baby mafia, the guys are still learning the business under the Family, so they are scary, but they are also still teenage boys.

GAH!! Knights Ridge Empire as a series is just so, so good and I’m totally here for it!!

Synopsis:

What happened that night was meant to be a one-time thing.

I wasn’t meant to walk straight into him as I started my life over once more.

Dear readers,
Wicked Knight is the first book in Stella’s steamy, angsty high school bully romance duet. You can find her prequel, Wicked Summer Knight in the Hot Summer School Nights charity anthology.

USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you a new dark mafia, high school bully romance series.

The truth is meant to set you free… but not my truth.

Mine has sent me deeper and darker, feeding my need for revenge. I want blood for those who wronged me and my family. And my so-called truth is ripping me apart, in a way lies never could.

Everyone else has moved on, but I can’t. Not until someone pays.

And it seems that fate is on my side this time, because the hellion girl from the graveyard is going to be my saving grace… and provide me with everything I crave.

The pain.

The vengeance.

The blood.

She has no idea what she’s been dragged into, but she’s going to regret every step she’s taken to get here.

Stella Doukas isn’t like any other girl I’ve encountered before.

She’s fierce, determined, and much stronger than I anticipated.

I might have met my match.

And that is not a good thing…

Dear readers,

Wicked Knight is the first to my new angst-filled new adult mafia series. This book is a dark bully romance that contains mature content and demanding alphaholes that some readers may find disturbing. You have been warned.

http://mybook.to/RiotAct

USA Today Bestselling Author, Callie Hart, delivers a twisted and edgy new dark romance tale, featuring a girl with nothing left to lose and a broken boy with a heart as black as his soul.

Want something? Pax will take it from you.

Love something? Pax will destroy it.

Love him? Heaven help you. You’d have to be the stupidest person to walk the face of the earth.

PAX

I don’t do complicated. I sure as hell don’t do love. With graduation in sight, I’ve made it almost four years at Wolf Hall without getting tangled up in BS with girls.
I especially want nothing to do with her:
Presley. Maria. Witton. Chase.
The timid little mouse with the red hair, who can’t even look my way without hyperventilating. She’s nothing to me. Beautiful, sure, but I’ve had plenty of beautiful women.
I’m perfectly content ignoring her…
…until her life is suddenly in my hands.

PRES

I’ve loved him from the moment I laid eyes on him.
The cruel, inked anarchist of Riot House.
He’s wicked, and he’s cold, and there’s nothing good left in him.
I fear him almost as much as I crave him.
With only a few weeks left until graduation, all I have to do is keep my head down, and then I’ll be free; I can leave Mountain Lakes and my obsession with Pax Davis in my rearview mirror.
But the demons I’ve been hiding for years now are growing restless…
…and Pax is thing that will keep them at bay.

This is not an act of kindness.
Not an act of love.
Not an act of forgiveness.
You’ll find no redemption here.
This is the final riot.

ACT ACCORDINGLY.

RIOT ACT is a 137,000-word standalone book in the Crooked Sinners Series and does not end on a cliffhanger. This book contains dark content that may be considered a trigger for some readers, and as such is recommended for readers 17+

About the Author:
CD Reiss has a long history of aimlessly moving from place to place. She finally settled in Los Angeles where she earned a master’s degree in cinematic writing from USC. After graduation, she ultimately failed to have one line of dialog put on film, but stayed in Hollywood out of spite.
Since screenwriting was going nowhere, she switched to novels. Soon after, luck arrived with a complete set of baggage. She now has over two dozen titles under her belt. Two of those are NY Times Bestsellers and a handful more are USA Today bestsellers. Her audiobooks have won APA Audie Awards and Earphones Awards, swelling her ego to an inhuman size.
She lives with her family, two cats and her long-suffering husband in a small Hollywood house that’s been outfitted with huge, ego-sized doorways.

Review – Riot Act by Callie Hart

58314028. sx318

Riot Act; Crooked Sinners #3 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: October 12, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Dark Romance

Author: Callie Hart

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Callie Hart has written an explosive book with a dynamic couple at the helm. A Phoenix and a Sinner – two similar souls who have lead very different lives, but collide in a firework of pain and color where their souls fall in love. A TEN star worthy book!!

As much as I love Wren Jacobi, Riot Act is now my favorite Crooked Sinner book. This story is engaging and is one that will be completely unforgettable. I was so engrossed in reading that I’d forget where I was, what day of the week it was, or even what time of day it was. Riot Act is a true masterpiece.

Pax Davis is a complex character. He lives life to the fullest – a young man with a YOLO mentality and also filled with sociopathic rage that boils just underneath his skin. His hair trigger personality can be fun one moment and then make it wish you’d never met him the very next – Pax is so interesting, I loved…LOVED getting inside his head.

One of three boys who live in Riot House, he’s just one of the fascinating characters that made up the three personalities that all fit together and are best friends who live in the lone house at the top of the mountain at Wolf Hall, but more than that they are ride or die brothers. Wren, Dash, and Pax each have their own unique traits and Pax has just been darn delicious getting to know in this final installment of the Crooked Sinners.

Presley Chase, who previously has been shy, timid and a total wallflower, rises from the ashes of her former self and becomes a glorious phoenix in this book. The old Pres is killed off and the new Presley is no longer living in the shadows, afraid of what she wants. Pax is confused, while he desperately desires the fiery redhead, a girl he never used to give a second glance to in the past. Now everywhere he turns Presley is in his sights. She’s glorious and he doesn’t know how to handle this new version or if he even wants to.

These two together are explosive, with chemistry through the stratosphere! It is crazy just how hot these two fire up the pages. Fans, air conditioning, and all the additional panties won’t prepare you.

Callie wrote a phenomenal book and I was riveted from the very beginning. I was turning pages so fast and I loved every word. Pax and Pres are a fantastic power couple, one that will fit perfectly with the other Riot House couples. Yes, I’m still torn up over Wren vs. Pax, it’s a tough war over who wins the number one spot…thankfully Callie gives all the boys some time in this book because I love them all. Yes, all the Sinners deserve a golden trophy. A naked golden trophy made in their likeness. 🙂

Mafia Queen; The DiLustro Arrangement #3 
(#3 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: October 12, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Arranged Marriage/Dark/Mafia Romance

Author: CD Reiss

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The final installment in the Mafia-DiLustro trilogy and war is on the horizon.

While a war has been a long time time coming, even though once upon a time Santino and Damiano were friends who grew up together, it was ancient artifact that came between them and poisoned what they had, spilling blood and fracturing their partnership.

There is a lot to unbox as this final book comes to a close. War, deception, grief, history, family dynamics, and an artifact that no one has actually seen, yet. Buckle up and hang on for quite a ride.

This last book was up and down with suspense and then moments of emotion. It was quite a rollercoaster. Violetta finds her sense of power after feeling powerless for quite a bit of the series. Where she had lost a lot of her fight, she found her inner backbone and earned her title of Mafia Queen. I understand sometimes a person has to lose everything to finally come back, but I was happy to see she found her spirit, Santino is a powerful man and needs a powerful woman by his side.

While Santino has fascinated me from the beginning, his single minded focus on obtaining the crown was also frustrating. I did enjoy seeing him fall more in love with his wife and open up a new side of himself in this last book. He is by no means a soft man, but for his wife he found the meaning of love and would certainly do anything for his queen.

This is a dark work with all the scruples of kill or be killed.  4.5 star read.

Synopsis:

What doesn’t kill you makes you a killer.

Santino DiLustro changed me. You can’t spend time in bed with the devil without getting addicted to the heat.
Before him, I was a girl. Innocent and weak.

New Release – Kings of Blood and Money by Ker Dukey

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Kings of Blood & Money
An Underworld Kings Series Standalone
Author: Ker Dukey
Genre: Mafia Romance
Release Date: October 8, 2021
BLURB
This is not a story of love.
This is a story of revenge and the bond created from it.

 Noah

The Gallo family took everything from us.
They killed my mother and sister, leaving me and my twin brother fighting for our lives.
My father was supposed to be there that night. He should have been there. Should have protected them—us.
When you strip a man of all he cares about, you’re left with a soulless entity seething with primal rage. He promised to turn Gallo’s bloodline to dust to get his retribution.
And he did.
All but one.

Freya

I was seven years old when I was taken in the night. I don’t remember much of life before that.
All I know now is the glaring eyes of a boy who hates me, and the comfort I find in the boy whose face mirrors his.
I’m not part of this family, but they’re all I have comparable to one.
To hate is easy.
And I do hate them.
But to love even in hate is what hardens you, strengthens you, gives you reason.
The truth is I shouldn’t love them, that all these years are leading somewhere I won’t want to go.
But I do…
Love them.
I love them both.
The only question left now is, do they love me?

EXCERPT

“You throttled me.” She levels me with a stiff glare.
“I remember seeing a bruise.” It was an impulse, a need to inflict pain with her pleasure, to ground myself.
Yanking the neck of her sweater down, she scowls. “Because you like to leave marks, right?”
A shadow passes through the room as I stand and stalk toward her, devouring the space between us. Tilting her chin with my forefinger and thumb, I trace the light bruises blemishing her soft, creamy skin. I got carried away, held her too tight. Leaning down, I whisper against her ear, “You want me to kiss them better?” Her intake of breath brings a smile to my lips. She likes the big bad wolf. No matter how much she tries to deny it, claim she hates me, her body doesn’t.
Fucking ditto. 
I swipe my tongue across her neck, capturing her with an arm around her waist. Her legs almost give in. She’s sensitive, her nerves firing. Closing my mouth over her sore little neck, I suck, kiss, caress the bare surface.
Pulling away to face her, my balls draw up at the unfiltered lust blazing in her eyes. “Ask me to kiss you,” I tell her.
Rapid breaths lift her chest up and down. “Ask me, Freya,” I command.
“No.” She closes her eyes, her tone husky. 
A dark chuckle rumbles past my lips as I grasp her jaw, cupping her beautiful face. “Fucking ask me.”
“I hate you.”
“I hate you too. Now fucking ask me.”
“Kiss me,” she cries. Not a plea, but shame. She’s ashamed at how fucking badly she burns for the monster who frightens her so much.
“Say my name,” I growl.
“Noah,” she whines.
“Kiss me, Noah,” I instruct.
Silence.
I tug her forward, inhaling all her sexual heat.
“Say it, Freya, and I’ll give you what you need.”
“Kiss me, Noah.” She sobs. My insides churn at the decision I make. Slamming my lips against hers, I ram my tongue past the seal of her delectable lips, taking my fill.

Author: Charity B.
Genre: Dark Paranormal Romance
Release Date: October 7, 2021
BLURB

Mishka
Angels, demons… the afterlife.
I’d always thought they were bullshit.
Until all my misguided beliefs were proven wrong by an infuriating, flippant asshole with horns who has no concept of boundaries.
Summoning him was never the plan, especially since I’m not willing to do what it takes to send him back.
If I’ve learned anything from Loch, it’s that preconceived ideas are usually false, and the truth is much messier than fables.
The theory of good and evil is flawed.
Nothing is that simple.

Loch
The only side of human nature I’ve ever encountered is vile and perverse, depraved and cruel.
However, Mishka’s none of those things.
She’s an insufferable, snarky creature who makes me question everything I know about myself.
The longer I’m with her in this world, the less desperate I am to return to mine, which is absurd.
I am son of Asmodeus.
A prince spawned from lust to torment the damned.
The mortal realm is not where I belong.

Incubastard deals with Christian lore that does not align with the Bible. It is completely fictional. If this will make you uncomfortable, please do not read this book.

Content Warning: This novel contains graphic scenes depicting blood and gore along with sexually explicit content and violence. For mature audiences only.

EXCERPT

Rubbing my hands over my face, I turn around to go to my room. My stomach lurches up to my chest, yet it still takes a second to register that there’s a hooded stranger with crossed arms leaning against the counter a mere few feet from me. As I open my mouth to scream, he lifts his head enough to show his devastatingly beautiful face wearing an impish grin.
Before a single sound can leave my lips, my skin pulsates with tingling waves that crawl down my arms and legs. I lose the ability to use my knees, forcing me to turn my back to him and grab the edge of the counter. Attempting to hold myself up, I involuntarily moan while tides of supreme ecstasy roll from between my legs. My hand slips, crashing a plate around my feet, but I can’t seem to care. The prodigious pulsing continues for such an inordinate amount of time, I think I may pass out. It’s an orgasm on LSD.
After what feels like an eternity, the frenzied vibrations begin to ebb, allowing my stiff fingers to release the counter. Somehow, I momentarily forgot about the man in the room with me.
Spinning around, I find him still standing there, wearing the same wicked smile. “You’re welcome.”
With darting glances, I search for something sharp. My mind finally catches up with the knowledge that I just had a spontaneous mega-orgasm in front of an intruder who may or may not be here to kill me. “Wh-what do you want?”
He scoffs, standing straight to reach his full, impressive height. “You called me, remember? I’m here to do whatever you desire.”
I don’t dare take my eyes off him while my hands continue fumbling behind me, nearly crying in relief when I wrap my fingers around the handle of a knife.
Seeing as I most certainly did not call him, he’s clearly off his meds. I try my best to keep my voice soft in a desperate effort to placate him. “I think you’re confused.” Attempting subtlety, I take tiny steps toward the kitchen doorway.
His chuckle makes my nerves snap one by one. “I’m clearly not the one who’s confused.” With tattooed hands, he tugs on the sleeves of his black leather jacket, walking toward me. I hold the knife out between us, clueless if I have the guts to use it. Narrowing his dark eyes, he reaches up to lower his worn brown hood, revealing more ink scrawled up his neck in weird symbols. “That’s not going to do shit to me, but you’re more than welcome to have at it. Although, it would be a bit rude, seeing as, like I said, you fucking called me.”
If my heart beats any harder, I’m going to blow chunks. “Please don’t kill me.”
His eyes narrow as if I insulted him. “Not allowed. Besides, I’d much rather fuck you.”
The way he speaks is incredibly odd, with an accent I’ve never heard. My gaze falls to his strange pants. What appears to be different tones of distressed leather are fused together into a unique patchwork. It’s also odd that his jacket looks brand new, yet the hood beneath it appears as weathered as his pants.
I shake the useless thoughts from my head, focusing back on the threat in front of me. His questionable fashion choices are not what I should be thinking about. If only I hadn’t had so much wine. There’s a psychopath a few feet away who could very possibly rape me or worse, and I can barely stand up straight.
The need to preserve my life overcomes any critical thinking I may possess. Taking less than a second to process my thoughts, I bolt out of the kitchen, sprinting for the front door. Right when I’m about to reach the handle, I run smack dab into his solid form before falling back on my ass. He doesn’t even sway from the impact.
Tears wet my face in defeat. How on earth did he beat me here?
Dark, straight hair falls over his face as he crouches down to my level. My stare lifts to the two twisted braids above his left ear when his harsh voice commands eye contact. “You incited Maelprog flames with death blood, using the Ammalok Qew to call upon me by name. What could you have possibly expected to happen?”
The words I understand have my chest heaving. “L-Leena’s spell? It worked?”
His unnerving laugh pushes me closer to the edge of my sanity while he stands, towering over me. “You clearly got enough right that I ended up here.” His synthetic smile is tainted with a sneer. “What were you attempting to do, human?”
Human? Barely comprehending his question, I scramble to my feet. Even though a voice in the back of my mind whispers he’s speaking truth, I can’t accept it. This all has to be a stress-induced nightmare. “What are you?” I ask the question so quietly, I doubt he hears me until he winks.
“It’ll be much more fun to show you.”

Excerpt

“I…” I didn’t even know. I couldn’t explain what I didn’t know. “Ask me about Jake in a different way.”
“There is no other way.”
“You know there is! Ask it in a different way.” I shoved up to my feet. This was the fight here.
I was sick of the killing.
I could not handle one more body, especially not someone I knew.
My chest heaved. “Ask it in a different way.”
I liked Jake. I was hurt by what he said, but he wasn’t on my list anymore.
I frowned. “What happened with Cavers?”
“None of your business!” he erupted, his hands flying in the air, but he was moving farther away from me. His back hit the wall, and he let me see him, how haunted he was, how stricken. He let it all out for me to see and read, though I wasn’t sure he knew it. “I don’t run my decisions through some pussy I like plowing.”
Okay, now I was mad.
“Take that back,” I said quietly.
He swore, low and long. Then he moved, flipping a chair into the wall. It impaled there, and the wall held it. It looked like an abstract piece of art.
“Take it back!” I clipped out, folding my arms over my chest.
He looked away.
I didn’t know what was going on here, but fuck him if he didn’t take back calling me pussy he liked to plow.
I screamed, “Take it back!”
“No!” He was across the room and in my face in the next second. I braced myself, but he didn’t touch me.
He stopped just short of it, his breath in my cheek, his eyes taking me in, scanning my face.
He was panicking.
I saw it now, lurking there.
Good! That filled me with satisfaction.
My chest started pounding.
No, that was my heart.
It was thumping in my chest, getting stronger, faster—a steady and powerful beat now. I could feel it all the way to my toes—in my fingers, my neck. His eyes lingered on my lips.
He couldn’t look away.
Stark hunger flashed in his eyes, and he raised a hand, holding it in the air.
It curved gently, as if he wanted to touch my neck, or the side of my face.
But he didn’t move. He just held it there, a few inches from my skin.
His eyes lifted to mine. “You bitch.”
My heart still pounded, trying to reach him. “You’re a murdering asshole,” I whispered back, seething.
“What?”he sneered. “You want to fuck now? Forget you put a fucking gun to your head?”
“Don’t kill Jake.”
He pressed into me, his eyes wild, on the edge of control. “Why?” His breath was hot on me. He bent down, his eyes glittering now.
Then he found his control. He rested one hand against the wall, next to my head. The other found my hip and slid up, moving under my shirt, raising it.
God. I almost moaned.
Wetness flooded me, and I started to throb.
I wanted him.
So fucking bad.
He bent and his lips grazed over mine, my cheeks, my chin. Tingles raced through me.
Jesus.
I wanted him deep inside of me. I shifted, pressing against him, and both of us groaned from the contact.
I began moving, a slow grind, and he was quiet, grinding back.
This was different from the other times.
The terms had flipped. Roles were changing. Everything was being upended between us.

Blog Tour – Forbidden to Love by Siobhan Davis

“Forbidden to Love is mafia romance at its best.” -J.A. Owenby, International bestselling author

Forbidden To Love, an all-new dark, forbidden romance set in the same world as Condemned to Love by USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Siobhan Davis, is available now!

Natalia Mazzone has grown up knowing she is promised to a made man. As the only daughter of one of New York’s most powerful mafia dons, she knows she can’t refuse. It’s her duty, and she would never dishonor her beloved father.

But the man she’s promised to is a monster. And there is nothing but torture, pain, and heartache lying in wait.

So, she grabs happiness when she finds it—in the somewhat reluctant arms of Leonardo Messina.

Leo is her brother’s best friend. A soldato for the Mazzone famiglia. A man with strong ambition and an even stronger resolve. He won’t allow them to give in to temptation, so Natalia is forced to love him from afar.

Until one forbidden night changes everything, and she readily hands Leo the key to her heart.

Leo risked everything for the one woman he can never have. He doesn’t regret it. It saved Natalia from a life of hell, but his actions set her on a different course.

One that doesn’t involve him.

Years have passed, and his feelings remain the same. Yet he keeps his distance, dedicating himself to his new role as underboss to Bennett Mazzone, while the love of his life is married to another man.

Until a twist of fate puts Natalia in his path again, and this time, he is powerless to resist.

Excerpt

LEO

Gently, I tuck her hair behind her ears, removing a handkerchief from my pants pocket and wiping her clammy brow. “I need to see the damage,” I softly say. “Can I unbutton your shirt to look?”
Her big blue eyes look too trusting as she nods. With careful movements, I unbutton her white school blouse, hoping she can’t see how my fingers are shaking as I slowly reveal her body to me. I’m instantly appalled at the devastation on her skin. Bruising is already appearing in several places on her torso, mainly centered around her ribs on both sides, but there’s an impression of a shoeprint on her chest and discoloration on her stomach. I stuff a hand in my mouth to strangle my agony, squeezing my eyes shut as I struggle to get a grip on myself.
“Leo.” Her melodious voice is a sensual caress over my skin, helping to ground me. “Do I look that bad?” she whispers.
My eyes snap open at that. “Dolcezza.” I take her hand in mine. “You look beautiful. Like always. But I cannot stand to see what those cunts have done to you. I want to go in there and riddle them with bullets until they stop breathing.”
“I wouldn’t oppose that plan,” she says, and I can’t tell if she’s serious or not.
I shake my head. “No, dolcezza.” I bring her hand to my mouth, planting a kiss on her warm skin. “Don’t say that. I know you are hurting, but that’s not who you are.”
“There is more darkness inside me than you realize, Leo. More hatred than I ever thought I was capable of feeling.”
I don’t like hearing that, but it’s naïve to think she is immune to the darkness that is an inherent part of the world we inhabit.

Review – Kings of Blood and Money by Ker Dukey

58411643

Kings of Blood and Money; Underworld Kings 
(A standalone within a multi-author series)

Publication Date: October 8, 2021

Genre/Tropes: MFM/New Adult/Mafia/Taboo/Dark Romance

Author: Ker Dukey

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Hit the ground running – what a crazy, intense, mind-blowing story!

This dark book may not be for everyone, but if revenge, violence, and super angsty romance fits your wheelhouse, then these Kings will quench your thirst.

Taken from her home as a child, Freya, is kidnapped and locked away in the Remington’s home. With questions and mystery surrounding why she’s not only taken, but locked away, she’s kept like a trophy or a prize won from war, but an unwanted prize. Freya is not allowed to interact with the family and yet the Remington twins hold a fascination to her, considering they are just a few years older than her. She doesn’t understand why Noah and Remi are allowed to roam the house and have friends, but she is a prisoner under the same roof.

There were so many questions for so many chapters, that kept me up late reading, because I just had to know…this book was intense!! Can you tell by my run on sentence and punctuation!!

From the beginning of Freya’s interactions with Noah and Remi there is a distinct difference between the two brothers. Noah absolutely loathes Freya upon sight and Remi is fascinated with her. This doesn’t change as they grow and mature, but those emotions just shift. Hate is never far from love and fascination is just a step away from obsession. The question then becomes, can Freya love them back when she ultimately learns the truth of why she was taken.

These boys work for their father and he’s part of the underworld. What they do isn’t sunshine and rainbows, but it is their life.

Kings of Blood and Money is filled with twists and turns with lots of darkness thrown in to boot. It’s a good addition to the Underworld Kings series.

Synopsis:

This is not a story of love.
This is a story of revenge and the bond created from it.

Noah

The Gallo family took everything from us.
They killed my mother and sister, leaving me and my twin brother fighting for our lives.
My father was supposed to be there that night. He should have been there. Should have protected them—us.
When you strip a man of all he cares about, you’re left with a soulless entity seething with primal rage. He promised to turn Gallo’s bloodline to dust to get his retribution.
And he did.
All but one.

Freya

I was seven years old when I was taken in the night. I don’t remember much of life before that.
All I know now is the glaring eyes of a boy who hates me, and the comfort I find in the boy whose face mirrors his.
I’m not part of this family, but they’re all I have familiar as one.
To hate is easy.
And I do hate them.
But to love even in hate is what hardens you, strengthens you, gives you reason.
The truth is I shouldn’t love them, that all these years are leading somewhere I won’t want to go.
But I do…
Love them.
I love them both.
The only question left now is, do they love me?

Part of a multi-author series of standalone books filled with mafia families waging war, danger and violence, arranged and forced marriages, angst, love, and everything
in-between, The Underworld Kings Series

I grew up with three boys who vowed to always protect me.

Vaughn, Nico, and Cruz started as my neighbors.

Then, they became my best friends.

And in the end, they were my entire world.

We thought we were invincible. That nothing and no one could ever tear us apart.

It’s funny how murder has a way of changing that, isn’t it?

This is the story of our beginning.

This is the story of our destruction.

*CALLOUS BOYS is a 45k word prequel to the Callous Boys of Crystal Cove series. This is a dark (#whychoose) reverse harem story, meaning the heroine winds up with three or more love interests by the final installment. This book may contain triggers for sensitive readers. Due to mature subject matter, it is recommended for readers 17+ only.

Read Kay’s Review: Callous Boys

Laura Lee is the USA Today bestselling author of steamy and sometimes ridiculously funny romance. Laura won her first writing contest at the ripe old age of nine, earning a trip to the state capital to showcase her manuscript. Thankfully for her, those early works will never see the light of day again!

Laura lives in the Pacific Northwest with her wonderful husband, two beautiful children, and three of the most poorly behaved cats in existence. She likes her fruit smoothies filled with rum, her cupboards stocked with Cadbury’s chocolate, and her music turned up loud. When she’s not writing or watching HGTV, she’s reading anything she can get her hands on. She’s a sucker for spicy romances, especially those that make her laugh.

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Tijan has blown me away with Canary!! Amazing drama, fantastic development, a well thought out story arc that captured my attention from the very first sentence and kept it until the very last page.

I was completely drawn into this new world by Tijan. I was fascinated by the characters and digging through the layers of plot development that even as the body count was piling up I was still rooting for the romance between these dark characters. Fantastic!!

Girl/Carrie/Ash – The name of the leading heroine continually changed, and I don’t want to go into the depth of why that is important, but her story behind how she ends up working with the mafia is fascinating in itself. The Canary, as she becomes known, works for Raize, or more like she was won in a poker game because of her unique skill set. She is a human lie detector, a valuable asset in the mafia world when time is short, and there are people to kill. That is Raize’s speciality, which is why he sought her out, but over time their connection grows, something neither one of them expected.

It’s hot, insatiable, passionate and oh yeah…hot!! It could be the fact that they are continually running for their lives and could die at moments notice that makes them never keep their hands off each other, but whatever it is, their intensity is there and adds to the story tenfold.

Raize, himself, has quite the backstory, aside from being a hired mafia killer. Everywhere these two go they draw attention to themselves. It’s not only their good looks, but also their dangerous energy. Will they ever escape the targets on their backs and bigger question is, do they want to?

Canary is fantastic and another wonderful addition for Tijan’s mafia collection!

Synopsis:

“Canaries sing to save lives. I sing and people die.”

We were on the front lines in that world, the mafia world.

There was nothing soft or glamorous about it.

Who you were before no longer mattered. Names didn’t exist.

I joined anyway. I had no other choice because they took my sister.

Join. Find her. Try and make it out alive.

Then he won me in a poker game.

I hated him instantly, thinking he was like my other bosses before him.

He wasn’t. He was worse.

He wasn’t just cold. He was dead inside.

It didn’t matter that he was gorgeous.

He was the most lethal thing I’d ever met.

He was also the only person who could keep me alive, if he didn’t kill me himself.

A/N This is a 102k mafia/cartel standalone.
This is the most violent book Tijan has ever written.
Trigger warning: references to sexual violence

We’re wrong in every way.

If only I could’ve convinced my heart.

His lips whispered promises of all the stars in the sky.

I dreamt of a love that would last forever.

We were gorgeously young and desperate for one another.

But we’re star-crossed.

Fate had decided our course.

Leaving us to cling to each other as we crumbled to ash.

His need became possession.

My innocence turned jaded.

Our families declared war.

All that remained was hate.

But Calder was raised by wolves. The rules didn’t apply.

I was his until he said otherwise–for better or for worse.

Our love story’s bathed in crimson and drenched in bullets.

Because sometimes, Romeo comes with tattoos, guns, and a taste for blood.

Blog Tour – Apathy by L.K. Reid

 Release Date: September 20

There were sicknesses in this world even holy water couldn’t wash away.

 

In vicious nights, beautiful monsters lay.
Some with faces known, some ready to play.
Unsure of a friend, unsure of a foe,
Be certain of nothing you think you know,

Because what once enters Winworth, never leaves again.

Skylar Blackwood thought she knew what monsters looked like.
But in Winworth, nothing is what it seems.

Not the arrival of a stranger with eyes that see too much, and lips that taste like danger.
Not the young women who begin disappearing in the night.
And certainly not the people in the sleepy town she grew up in that begin to turn on one another.

One truth is undeniable, something wicked is loose in Winworth.
No one is safe, and trusting the wrong person could cost Skylar everything.

Trapped between the two worlds as secrets start to unravel, what little sanity Skylar has left threatens to shatter, leaving her with more questions than answers.
 
Turns out, real monsters are never what they seem.
APATHY is the first book in Secrets of Winworth series, dealing with dark themes that might not be suitable for all readers. It is recommended only for readers above the age of 18.

Meet L.K. Reid

Hi there. My name is Leila but I am writing under my pen name L.K. Reid.

I write dark romance, the characters that are depraved, lost, a little bit misunderstood and most of my books are touching subjects of mental health in one way or another. 

 

While Ricochet is the first book I will release, I have actually been writing since Primary School, but that little thing called self-doubt always kept me away from truly pursuing my dreams. 

Recently I realized that if I don’t chase my dreams, I will never do everything I want to do. Sixty years from now I would regret all the things I was too afraid to do, so I did it. I allowed myself to dream and put myself out there. I want to show you these worlds swirling inside my head and these characters whose stories have to be told. 

I am a restless person. I can’t stay in the same place for a very long time so I like to move. I love to explore new places, meet new people, learn about new cultures, you know, the usual. My mom used to tell me that I live inside my head, and that’s true. I really do. While I do love being surrounded with other people I also love to be alone. I think that until we truly know ourselves and our thoughts we could never be truly happy. 

Truth to be told, I am still figuring out this whole adult “thingy”, but I think that most of us are pretty much lost in that world. Slow walkers are the bane of my existence, and one of my biggest pet peeves is people not responding on their messages – it really drives me crazy. 

I wanted to be an archeologist, but we can see that that definitely didn’t work out. My small obsession with Greek, Egyptian, Nordic and Slavic Mythology was one of the driving forces behind many stories I wrote as a teenager, and I am pretty sure that one day I will end up writing a book with those themes. 

If I could I would set Halloween as a Public Holiday. Spooky season, Autumn, that’s my jam. Scary movies go hand-in-hand with that I would say, and my favorite ones are Halloween and Scream – all of them. Music was always a big part of my life as well, and I can’t imagine a day where I don’t listen to it for at least a little bit. Everything I ever wrote was done while listening to music, and if it wasn’t for music, I would most probably be completely lost.

Review – Forbidden to Love by Siobhan Davis

58721178. sy475

Forbidden to Love 
(An interconnected standalone)

Publication Date: September 30, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Dark/Forbidden/Second Chance/Mafia Romance

Author: Siobhan Davis

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Forbidden to Love is so appropriately titled because this book made me sad, sad, so super sad. 😩

Growing up in the mafia world there is no wiggle room when it comes to the rules. Natalia Mazzone has been in love with Leo Messina her entire life, but Leo works for her father and Natalia is the only daughter of a mafia don. Her marriage was decided and contracted before she even knew what love was. Her life wasn’t her own, her feelings never taken into consideration, her choices not up for discussion. Natalia was a pawn to strengthen the family and nothing more.

It’s sad…no matter how much Natalia and Leo want to be together their literal lives are on the line if they tried to be together. Leo would be six feet under if he took the liberties he wanted to, the very ones Natalia wants him to, but also realizes that her father wouldn’t hesitate to follow through on his threats.

Years go by and they each do their duty, and it’s so sad…have I made my point…,these two never stop loving each other even though they can never be together. It’s heartbreaking as they go on with their lives, but only living with half of their soul. My own heart was broken throughout this book as everything played out.

This story contains heart, suspense, angst, and most of all tons of emotion. Siobhan is the queen of pulling heart strings and this forbidden tale proves once again that she is the master of pulling every last one.

Synopsis:

A DARK MAFIA SECOND CHANCE FORBIDDEN ROMANCE

Natalia Mazzone has grown up knowing she is promised to a made man. As the only daughter of one of New York’s most powerful mafia dons, she knows she can’t refuse. It’s her duty, and she would never dishonor her beloved father.

But the man she’s promised to is a monster. And there is nothing but torture, pain, and heartache lying in wait.

So, she grabs happiness when she finds it—in the somewhat reluctant arms of Leonardo Messina.

Leo is her brother’s best friend. A soldato for the Mazzone famiglia.A man with strong ambition and an even stronger resolve. He won’t allow them to give in to temptation, so Natalia is forced to love him from afar.

Until one forbidden night changes everything, and she readily hands Leo the key to her heart.

Leo risked everything for the one woman he can never have. He doesn’t regret it. It saved Natalia from a life of hell, but his actions set her on a different course.

One that doesn’t involve him.

Years have passed, and his feelings remain the same. Yet he keeps his distance, dedicating himself to his new role as underboss to Bennett Mazzone, while the love of his life is married to another man.

Until a twist of fate puts Natalia in his path again, and this time, he is powerless to resist.

Releasing September 30th.
