They say opposites attract.

In my world that isn’t a good thing.

I did everything I could to escape the motorcycle club I grew up in when I turned twenty-one.

It wasn’t about fear, or betrayal, or even lack of love.

I just needed my own life.

I had to know how it felt to stand on my own two feet without their protection.

Then I met Diesel.

Mysterious, dark, with eyes that screamed to be understood.

From the second I met him, I knew I needed to be in his life.

There’s just one problem – he’s a member of a different motorcycle club.

Two things that should never be combined.

Yet I can’t stay away. No matter how hard he pushes. I can see beyond his mask.

I need to know who he is and I’ll overcome any obstacle to be in his life.

A friendship is born, followed by an epic love.

Our relationship is forbidden.

But I’ll do anything to be in his life.

Anything.

Each day we will post an interview. We will also include any reviews that we have done on these books as well as links to the books.

Our hope is that you will love this genre as much as we do! <3

Today is devoted to Pauline Allan

author bio

Pauline strives to make every reader feel sexy and desired by the time they turns to the last page. The Midwest is home, but her heart stays tethered to New Orleans where she travels three times a year to recharge her creative muse. She is amazed that she gets to wake up every morning next to her hero and go to bed each night listening to her two boys argue over who gets to put the cat to bed. When not writing, Pauline enjoys listening to music and watching Penny Dreadful and Game of Thrones. When it comes to romance, Pauline has one goal. Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Tell us about something about you (not included in your normal author bio) that maybe not everyone knows about you.

Funny tidbit. My mother was a showgirl at the Tropicana in Las Vegas before I was born. My father said she had great moves. I was lucky enough to inherit that sexy sway and decided, when I was twenty-one, it would be a grand idea to work at a strip club a couple of nights to pay for a semester tuition while I was in college. Well, I made it up on the stage for the audition. Had the slimy owner give me the thumbs up. The music went live. I covered my hands over my face and ran out of the place. So, I decided to keep my dancing moves on a regular dance floor from then on.

There’s been a trend in writing a series. How do you feel about series? Do you write them? Do you think they are easier or harder?

As a reader I enjoy reading them as long as the characters have a deep connection to one and other. I prefer series that tie the heroes together. I also like to write series because I feel I can build the world with layers and create a bond with the reader. I don’t feel they are easier or harder to write. Each book has to stand on its own merit and therefore be as independent as a stand alone. However, it does grant the writer and reader a longer period of time to get to know the whole cast.

Where do you do most of your writing?

In my office. I have a 1900 Victorian home. My office in on the second story. The third floor is reserved for the rug rats. My office is decorated in the likeness of a picture I found of an old brothel in Storyville, New Orleans. The decor consists of all my trinkets from my travels to Nola.

What are you currently reading? Any suggestions for your favorite books (beside your own, of course)?

Currently, I just finished Lissa Matthews’s Break Me. I’m also reading Megan Hart’s Hold Me Close and Bonnie Dee’s When All The World Sleeps. I am usually reading a fetish, straight, and gay erotic romance all at once.

Do you feel that this genre is growing? And what do you contribute to that growth or decline?

Oh my gosh, yes! I’ve been reading gay romance for years, but never expected the genre to literally explode. The books are rich with broken characters and emotional plot lines. I read more gay romance than any other genre. I love to write gay romance.

What is the most surprising thing you have learned about writing?

That I can do it! I’ve been writing short stories and poems since I was a little girl. One day sat down and said, “I think I’ll write a book.” So, I wrote a book, submitted it to a publisher and it got signed. It is amazing I get to write down the stories in my head and people cry and smile when they read them. I feel very blessed.

What are you working on now?

Claiming Dane, the second book in the Hot Southern Nights series comes out on March 22nd. Currently, I’m writing Broken Pieces an erotic romance Young Adult book.

What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday night?

Lock myself in my office and write with James Bond movies playing in the background.

Tell us about the highest HIGH and lowest LOW in your career so far. How has it changed you?

Highest high…the first time my dad held a signed copy of my first published novel. The lowest…the last time I knew he’d ever hold one of my books again.

Blurb:

Billy Jeffers, pianist, never dreamed of being in a rock band, yet he reluctantly agreed to help a friend start one: Steel Total Destruction. Then, at a Miami club one night, the front man was injured and unable to play lead guitar. Therefore, Billy quickly learned and was then thrust into a spotlight he never wanted.

Madison, lead singer Memphis Black’s sassy twenty-year-old sister, left college to work for Forever Four. She has felt an intense attraction toward Billy from the first time she laid eyes on him. She even makes it apparent, but he brushes off every attempt she makes.

When his world starts crumbling apart, the band’s nice guy becomes deliciously bad. Will he use Madison’s attraction toward him to seduce her into keeping her mouth shut? Or will she reveal the secret that could crush the bond Billy has with Steel Total Destruction and Forever Four?

Hearts will be broken, hate f*cks will be had, friendships will be tested, and all hell will break loose.

Are you ready to rock?

angies review

 

 

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I am dying!!  This book had me cracking up and then wanting to throat punch the two main characters multiple times through the story….but a good throat punch is always ok right???

Billy and Madison. Madison and Billy.  Those two have been dancing around each other for too damn long.  I have been WAITING for their story since we saw the sparks fly in the very first book.  Billy aka Mr. Primp and Proper who is fighting his attraction for his co-worker/best friend’s little sister.  Madison aka Ms. Wild Child is going to get her man or make him “uncomfortable” for the rebuffs.

Billy is so repulsed by Madison’s behavior but at the same time he is completely turned on by it.  Madison is so mad that Billy won’t admit he want her like she wants him so she is going to make his life a living hell.  When Billy gets some troubling news instead of being the logical thinker be drowns in the bottom of a bottle.  WELLL, that might had been what broke the camel’s back because things with Madison are ON!!  Then when he needs help, Madison is there to jump into the fire to help him figure his drama out.  He is floored by this new side of her.  He is also even more attracted to her.  This is NOT who he thought she was.  Madison is over the moon that Billy is letting her in a bit.  She is even excited he is opening up and trusting her which is something only her wild imagination would have even thought possible.

The sassy and feisty attitude of Madison had me cracking up but then wanting to hug her because she is a kind soul who only wants to help those she cares for.  Billy is so “stickup his butt” until Madison helps him see that wild and out of control is ok and makes life worth living.

My favorite scenes are: Madison breaking her butt…..LOL  yeah its great reading.  I also loved Billy’s affliction…..Again I was cracking up but so moved by his statement.  But what I really loved was seeing Billy let go and open up to let Madison in.  I also loved Madison teaching Billy that unpredictability is a great gift to possess.

#Review – Fractured Palace by RJ Loom – Blog Tour – #WOTR Attending Author

Title: Fractured Palace

Author: R.J. Loom

Genre: New Adult Contemporary Standalone

Release Date: March 22, 2016 

They say home is where the heart is. 

Ashton Roberts never understood that saying. Heart couldn’t be found anywhere in the rundown bungalow she grew up in. It also couldn’t be found in the luxury estate she moved into when her mother married her stepfather. 

All Ashton wants is to get her degree, meet Mr. Right and find the happy stable life she never had. But when life constantly throws her curve balls, she begins to wonder if it really is just a pipe dream.

Until she runs into her former neighbor, Reed Collins.

As a child, Reed had always been Ashton’s silent protector. As an adult, he is everything she has ever dreamed of in a man. If only he didn’t keep her at arms length. But as things heat up, guards drop and secrets are revealed which toss Ash back into the turmoil surrounding a tragic event from her youth. 

Will Ashton let her past fracture the perfect picture of her future? Or will the meaning of loyalty, family and love be redefined?

After laying out rugs and putting away towels she began a battle with the packaging for the shower curtain rings. The plastic was sealed on all sides and no amount of tugging or biting at the edges would tear it open. She growled in frustration.

“Uh…Ash?” Reed chuckled from his bedroom. “You okay in there?”

Great. He heard her. “Yeah,” she called out. “I just can’t get this package open. Do you have any scissors?”

“Hang on…”

Ashton continued her fight then hissed as the plastic edge sliced into her thumb.

Reed appeared in the doorway and held out his hand. “Give it here.”

Happy to get rid of the stupid package, she tossed it to him, then stuck her thumb in her mouth to suck away the sting. As he began to struggle with the container, his eyes lowered to her mouth. They lingered there for a moment before he lifted them to meet her own. “Are you all right?”

She removed her thumb from her mouth and inspected it for any bleeding. “Yeah, I’m fine,” she dismissed, tucking her hand in her back pocket of her jeans as if she could hide the fact she was just sucking her thumb.

Fortunately, her slight embarrassment was short lived. With one last hard tug, the package popped open and shower curtains rings flew everywhere. They ricocheted off of the medicine cabinet, sink and walls before scattering all over the floor and in the bathtub. But it was the one ominous plop which came from behind her that was cause for concern. Reed must have heard it at the same time because he stepped forward just as she turned. A lone chrome shower curtain ring sparkled back at them from the bottom of the toilet.

Ashton swung her head around and locked eyes with Reed in alarm. “Injured,” she called out, thrusting her hand in the air as if she were holding up a free pass.

“Oh yeah?” Reed chuckled and raised a brow.

“Yeah.” She nodded solemnly, cradling her hand to her chest. The small, barely visible slice in her thumb had suddenly and conveniently become a grave situation. “I could contract MRSA or some other nasty infection.”

His eyes flicked down to her hands then back up to meet her gaze. “Well, we wouldn’t want that.”

“No, we wouldn’t,” she agreed, narrowing her eyes as a smile slowly crept across his face. The smile would not have been worrisome had it been a regular smile. No, this smile should have warned her to take a step back. Instead, she got lost in the way it reached his eyes and showed off his white, almost perfectly straight teeth.

“Good thing your other hand is fine,” he pointed out just as he lunged forward to try to grab her wrist.

“No!” She squealed, jumping out of the way.

He laughed and pushed one of his shirt sleeves up. “I’m kidding, Ash. I wouldn’t do that.” Shaking his head, he turned back to the toilet. “I’m going in.”

Ashton watched from the safety of the doorway as Reed swooped in to retrieve the shower curtain ring. He tossed it into the sink then washed it and his hands, going all the way up to his elbows. After he was done, he flicked water at her then grabbed a towel.

Reed’s eyes met hers as he dried his hands. Their laughter died off and silence stretched between them. Eventually, he cleared his throat and averted his gaze to the floor. A crease formed between his brows and she wondered what he could possibly be thinking.

“Ash …,” he began and lifted his eyes back to hers. In that brief moment, Ashton’s heart beat faster and she swore she felt some kind of connection with Reed she had never felt before. She wondered if it was her imagination or simply anticipation for what he was about to say. Most likely, it was a combination of both.

“Jackpot!” Danny announced from the bedroom, shattering the moment. “I found Reed’s spank bank!”

In spite of the horrible timing, Ashton could not help but burst out laughing. Reed groaned and stepped toward where she stood in the doorway. They both looked over to find Danny with a huge grin on his face as he held up a couple copies of some car magazine.

She shook her head and turned back to Reed. “You share a gene pool with that one.”

“Yeah,” he said, running a hand over the back of his head before he looked back over toward his room. “Hey, Danny. Why don’t you go outside, dig a hole, jump into it and bury yourself,” Reed suggested as if it were a great idea.

This only made Danny laugh harder.  

“I’m just messing with him, Ash,” Reed murmured in her ear before he stepped passed her.

She knew he had been but her curiosity over what he had been about to say made her reach out to grab his arm to stop him. “Wait, what were you about to say in there,” she asked, inclining her back toward the bathroom.

His eyes shifted from the bathroom over to meet hers. He smiled but it was nothing like the smile he wore only a few minutes earlier. This one was weak at best. “Oh…nothing important,” he said with a shake of his head. Hooking a thumb over his shoulder, he took a step back. “I better get back to this so I have a bed to sleep in tonight.”

“Okay.” Ashton released his arm and watched as he walked back into his room.

kellys review

Oh my gods! Wow! Put your pajamas on, get your tissues, and settle in for the long haul. This is not a story that you can just pick up and put down whenever you get tired, need to eat, or even go to the bathroom. This is a story of love, sacrifice, and finding one’s self. Perfectly flawed fairytale!

We start the story off with Ashton. She is at a party and has to make a split decision to call her stepdad to pick her up. After she is picked and is gearing for an arguement they go look for her mother. She is dead. Ashton feels like she has been through it all. She has had a shabby home and upbringing, watched a string of boyfriends come in and out of her home, and was in the middle of her mother’s addictions. Her mother cleaned up, married her stepdad, and things went well until her mother relapsed and ended up dead. It was a devastating time but her stepdad continued to support Ashton. Ashton always knew what she didn’t want and worked incredibly hard to do everything in her power not to end up like her mother. Only this didn’t work out to her advantage. She constantly fell into bad relationships but the one thing that always seemed to help was her old friend, Reed. He always seemed to be there when she needed him. This goes back as far as her being 5. They used to be neighbors and Reed, along with his mother and brother, helped look after Ashton when she was in a bad spot at home. They would lose touch due to their age differences but he always popped up when she needed him most. Everything moves along and you just know this is going to work but Reed is beating himself up about something. Some terrible secret, some darkness, that he just can’t shake. This is where I leave you to find out the rest of the story. The twists and turns you are about to embark on cannot be given in a review. The only way to find out is to experience the emotions that both of these characters deal with. New love, turmoil, guilt, what-if’s….If you want it, this story has got it!

“It was all Ashton wanted, to be happy . She wanted the fairy tale with a Prince Charming, palaces and happy endings. Unfortunately, all she seemed to get was the part of damsel in distress. And it sucked.”

“So you’re the ‘Expect nothing from me. I get bored easily, guy’?” Reed chuckled and shook his head. “No, Ash. I’m just a guy who hasn’t found the girl I want to shape my world around. Simple as that.” Her brows pulled together in a frown. It was a sweet sentiment but something didn’t sit well with her. “Reed, you shouldn’t have to change for anyone.” His lips tilted up in a half grin. “I know. It’s the willingness that would be telling. And the right girl, would be willing to shape her world to include me in it too.”“Good answer, Mr. Collins,” she teased, even though she may have slightly melted on the inside.”

“My point is you cannot assume the motivations of others. You can judge but you have no idea what pushes people to make decisions that are unlawful or immoral. Sometimes , they may feel it is their only option.”

Perfectly flawed! This is an incredible journey to follow. Once I started reading I could NOT put the book down. It is exhausting chasing after fairy tales that don’t exist…but their fairytale is incredibly different and soooooo worth the read. If you have made it this far into my review I am not exactly sure what you are waiting for…you want a sweet love story? Go somewhere else. You want an emotional feelcoaster that is witty, funny, but also enough to break your heart and put it back together??? This is the story you NEED! A MUST READ!

R.J. Loom was born and raised along the shores of Lake Erie in Ohio, where she still resides with her husband, two children and two spoiled dogs. She loves books, music, travel and anyone with a great sense of humor. When she’s not writing, she can be found with her nose in a book, looking for more books to add to her “to-be-read” pile or spending time with her family.

Today is devoted to Wade Kelly

author bio

Wade Kelly lives and writes in conservative, small-town America on the east coast where it’s not easy to live free and open in one’s beliefs. Wade writes passionately about controversial issues and strives to make a difference by making people think. Wade does not have a background in writing or philosophy, but still draws from personal experience to ponder contentious subjects on paper. There is a lot of pain in the world and people need hope. When not writing, she is thinking about writing, and more than likely scribbling ideas on sticky notes in the car while playing “taxi driver” for her three children. She likes snakes, can’t spell, and has a tendency to make people cry.

Tell us about something about you (not included in your normal author bio) that maybe not everyone knows about you.

I refer to myself as an extroverted introvert. LOL. Although I do admit to be progressing toward extrovert, I do have many introverted qualities. I NEED alone time! I have to have quiet to regroup and recharge. I often room alone at conventions because I need some space to decompress after lots of talking and stimulation. Other than that, I am a very social person who likes to talk and hug often!

There’s been a trend in writing a series. How do you feel about series? Do you write them? Do you think they are easier or harder?

I am writing a series now. My Roommate’s A Jock? Well, Crap! was the first book in my JOCK Series. It was published in Dec 2012. Book 2 came out Dec 2015. Yes, there is three years between them, but I am a slow writer and wasn’t planning to continue this series until the story just popped into my head. I think they are harder to write than stand alone because you have to consider the information in the previous novel, and often foreshadow the next. There is more to consider.

Where do you do most of your writing?

Lately, on my couch.

What are you currently reading? Any suggestions for your favorite books (beside your own, of course)?

I am into audio books, so I am listening to Dark Horse White Knight by Josh Lanyon. Favorites include: The Adrien English Series by Josh Lanyon, Sinner’s Gin Series by Rhys Ford, American Love Songs by Ashlyn Kane, The Locker Room by Amy Lane, Widdershins Series by Jordan Hawk

Do you feel that this genre is growing? And what do you contribute to that growth or decline?

Yes, it is growing. I think it has to do with acceptance of same sex relationships instead of treating them as a disease. I think the more people that read LGBT stories, the more demand will be generated.

What is the most surprising thing you have learned about writing?

That it isn’t easy and it takes perseverance. You can’t give up when things aren’t flowing. You just have to push on.

What are you working on now?

I’m writing the 4th book in my JOCK Series. Book 2 came out in Dec 2015 – No! Jocks Don’t Date Guys. Book 3 (Back Off! That’s My Jock) has been submitted to Dreamspinner Press and I hope to hear back soon about a contract. I’m also gearing up to promote Bankers’ Hours as it releases from Dreamspinner Press March 25th!

What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday night?

Watch a movie with my family. Lately, we’ve been watching episodes of the X-Files together. 🙂

Tell us about the highest HIGH and lowest LOW in your career so far. How has it changed you?

Lowest low was after my first novel released and I hoped for huge sales and great reviews! Um, apparently they do not come easily! I was delusional about the business. It is VERY HARD! And when you start out with a book about gay suicide, recognition doesn’t come easily. Highest high came when writing Bankers’ Hours in the summer of 2015. I wrote it in 9 weeks. This was the first time something flowed so easily and I proved to myself I CAN write a novel in a short amount of time. Most of mine have taken a year to write. Finishing this one was thrilling! My career has changed because I’ve learned how to be more dedicated in writing and more organized. Writing EVERYDAY is very important! Over time, I have also learned to let go of bad reviews. In the beginning, they were crushing! Now, I have to think of them as differing opinions. Everyone has their own opinions. I can’t take them personally!

#ReleaseBlitz – The One by Danielle Allen


The cattiness.
The fights.
The shaming.

I don’t generally watch reality television, but I definitely don’t watch reality dating shows. Besides the fact that it’s completely staged, it’s a horrible depiction of people — women especially.

Women are pitted against each other to compete for the affection of a man they “fall in love” with after a week or two.
I call B.S.
It is complete crap.

So when my best friend, Koko, was hired as a makeup artist o the set of the most popular reality dating show, The One, I teased her mercilessly.
She told me that if I didn’t stop teasing her, she would get me back.
And she did…
Which is how I ended up as a contestant on The One.

 Excerpt

 “Ohhhh, yeah,” I remembered, familiarity of the case and the names flooding my brain. “’Sweet’. That case ended her music career, didn’t it? I loved that song. I vaguely remember that he was the one who wrote it, but they settled out of court, right?”

“Yes. But do you know what he looks like now?” My best friend inquired.

“No… I just remember being fascinated by the case because—”

“I’m going to go ahead and stop you right there,” she interrupted, cutting me off mid-sentence.

“We are not going to talk law right now. We are going to talk about you having the chance to bump uglies with Julian Winters. He is the—”

I frowned as I interjected, “The sheer fact that you said ‘bump uglies’ has disqualified you from giving me advice about anything in general, but sex specifically. You need to—”

A quick knock on the door followed by the sound of it being pushed open forced my sentence to end abruptly.

I received this book from an honest review.

I love a good shifter novella.  I read all of the Wolf shifters from Kenize and was stoked to get a bear novella to read.

This story is about Cyrus the bad boy who has loved the neighbor next door, Claire, for 20 years.  When Claire’s no good ex-boyfriend comes back after a 6 year shifter jail term, she is not happy.  When she finds out she has been pushed into an arranged marriage with him, she is livid.  When Cyrus, the dream guy saves her, she is in way over her head!!

I really loved Claire’s character in the story.  She is feisty, spunky and will not be told what to do.  However as strong and feminist like as she is, one smirk from Cyrus has her melting in a pile of goo.  When Cyrus decided to help her from her ex, it was in hopes of getting her himself.  I loved how confident he is even when she sees him with another woman and blows it out of context.

These stories are some of my favorites because they are delicious HEA reads when you have a couple hours to sit and read.

author bio

Born and raised in a small coastal town in northern Québec, Bey spent his early summers on his uncle’s boat and running wild on the beaches of the surrounding islands, lighting fires and building huts out of driftwood and fishermen’s nets. As an adult, he eventually made his way to university and earned a degree in Art History with a strong focus on Anthropology. Primarily a portrait painter and graphic artist, Bey sat down one day and decided to start writing. Bey currently lives in the wilds of Montréal with his best buddy, a ridiculous, spotty pit bull named Murphy.

Tell us about something about you (not included in your normal author bio) that maybe not everyone knows about you.

I like doing charity and pro bono work. It’s something I’ve always enjoyed—I do paintings/original artwork for auctions to raise money for shelter dogs, LGBT youth groups, and green initiatives, and I support orgs like MSF (Doctors Without Borders), and non-profits. I’d love to do even more as time goes on.

There’s been a trend in writing a series. How do you feel about series? Do you write them? Do you think they are easier or harder?

I find it’s harder *not* to write a series. My first book was book 1 in a trilogy that’s now turned into a series. Why? Because I love my characters and to continue writing about them makes me happy. I get to revisit them. As a reader, I really enjoy series… as long as they don’t go on too long. I don’t mind things that are unfinished, in fact sometimes I prefer an unfinished series to one that ends weakly.

Where do you do most of your writing?

In my home office—I’ve got a really nice set up now. I used to write on the couch, but that got to be a real pain in the back. I also write on the go using my phone. I wrote most of my first book (Caged) on my old iPhone 4.

What are you currently reading? Any suggestions for your favorite books (beside your own, of course)?

I’m not reading anything at the moment. I’ve discovered that I’m not very good at reading and writing at the same time. However, I was on vacation a little while ago and devoured Dan Skinner’s “Xperiment”. A fantastic read. My favourite books within the LGBT umbrella would be… hm… “Grif’s Toy” and “Brothers LaFon” by Joseph Lance Tonlet, Jack L. Pyke’s “Don’t” series, “Trasmundo: Escape” by Varian Krylov, Brad Vance’s “Would I Lie to You?”. On the more mainstream side, Cry to Heaven by Anne Rice is one of my all time favourite books. Oh! And The Swede by Robert Karjel was very good. I mostly read science fiction, fantasy, horror, graphic novels, KGB/CIA thrillers, medical texts, non-fiction

Do you feel that this genre is growing? And what do you contribute to that growth or decline?

LGBT romance/erotica? I would guess yes. It feels like folks (at least in some places) are becoming more knowledgeable and inclusive about sexual orientation and gender identity, and so stories featuring characters that span the spectrum are more in demand.

What is the most surprising thing you have learned about writing?

The biggest surprise I had was that my readers were largely women. I had no idea that would happen. And, also, that readers expect books to follow certain formulas.

What are you working on now?

I am deep into a fantasy novel right now. It’s called Kestrel’s Talon and it’s tentatively set to come out in April. I don’t yet have a synopsis, but it’s got a page on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/28926549-kestrel-s-talon It’s about 60% written so far, so I’ll update the pub date when I have a firm idea of when it’ll be done.

What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday night?

Watch movies or go have some drinks with a friend or go to a concert.

Melinda's Review

I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

This book had me hooked from the moment I started it. I sat and read it in one day. The story was heartbreaking, powerful, and one of overcoming tragedy and adversity.

This is about two people trying to overcome one tragic day. Both live this day over and over in two different ways. Britton “Britt” Reeves survived that horrific day and had to learn to live again. She finds comfort in her work and feels protected around all the fighters as a sports therapist. Keller “Killer” Rafael is a MMA fighter who lives day to day with the guilt of what he did or really didn’t do that same horrific day that both endured. He hides behind a new name and intimidates most people just by his scowl and cold eyes.

This story had so much in it there was drama and the chemistry between Britt and Killer was off the charts. This shows two people going through something horrific and trying to come out on the other side but most of all finding love when you thought you were incapable. Killer may have been the Alpha MMA fighter that as a reader is easy to fall for but Britt was the true fighter in this she amazed me at every turn of the page. After everything she went through she is a survivor. Not only did she have to overcome that day but had to deal with her mother and deal with what went along with overcoming her injury. There were some awesome side characters from some of the other fighters to Roxanne that I wouldn’t mind reading more about. Great read that will keep you turning the pages until the last word read.

Excerpt:  Britt freaks out

Britt and Gabriel are waiting for me in his office so we can start our meeting. After my interaction with Wolfe, I’m seething and frustrated. All I want to do is jump into the cage and beat the fuck out of something, release this shit building up inside. Confusing new emotions like jealousy are dueling with my usual focused, raw fury.

The dark, hollow place in my chest isn’t equipped for this. I fight, I fuck, I exist. Nothing more, nothing less.

Furious, I walk over to Gabriel’s office and shove open the door. It bangs against the wall with a loud crack, causing Gabriel to frown and Britt to cry out. Just like that, she drops to the floor, curling into a ball and covering her head with her hands.

Gabriel leaps to his feet, hurrying around his desk to crouch next to a huddling, quivering Britt. Stunned, I stand at the door frozen, unsure what is going on or what I should do.

Meu filha! Britt! What is happening?” Gabriel’s voice hitches as he tries to pull Britt out from under his desk. His head whips around to face me. “Killer! ¡Venha aqui e ayudar!” (Get over here and help..)

I cross the space in two quick steps, approaching Gabriel’s desk from the opposite side. Britt’s tiny frame is tucked into a tight ball, her knees pulled to her chest, head ducked, and arms curled protectively over her head.

Protecting her from what?

“Britt,” I say in as composed of a voice as I can manage, which at this moment, isn’t saying much. Not a lot freaks me out, but right now, watching Britt fall to pieces, has me struggling to keep calm. “Please, come out.”

Britt is quietly sobbing, her body shuddering in fear. Watching her in such obvious distress sends a stabbing pain through my chest. Not sure this is the best thing for her, but not knowing what else to do, I crawl under the desk. Being as large as I am, I can only get my head and shoulders in next to her.

Gabriel slides into nervous, staccato Portuguese. “I will leave you to take care of her. Let me know when she’s feeling better and I will return.” He stands and leaves the room, gently closing the door behind him.

He left me with her?

What the fuck am I supposed to do? At a loss, I do the only thing that comes to mind. It worked to relax her before, so why not? I gather her tiny, trembling body up in my arms, and hold her. Britt immediately unwinds her arms, clutching me tight, burying her face into my shirt, her tears dampening the fabric.

On the floor in my trainer’s office, lying half under a desk, a tiny shard of my black soul becomes human again.

author bio

About me? Hmmm, I’m just a person with a wild imagination and a love for words who was sitting around the house one day and said, “Why hasn’t anyone written a book like this before?”. As with every storyteller, I wanted to share mine with the world. I like my erotica dark, gritty, sexy… and even a little raunchy. I’m not afraid to go there and I hope you aren’t afraid to go there with me. When I’m not writing, I love watching movies and TV shows, clubbing, biking, and hanging out with family and friends. I love life. I’d love to hear from you, feel free to send me a shout out!

Tell us about something about you (not included in your normal author bio) that maybe not everyone knows about you.

I love red meat, pizza, all kinds of music and anime.

There’s been a trend in writing a series. How do you feel about series? Do you write them? Do you think they are easier or harder?

I love writing a series because you can do so much more with your characters than with a stand alone book.

Where do you do most of your writing?

I have my laptop hooked up to my television, so I do most of my writing in bed.

What are you currently reading? Any suggestions for your favorite books (beside your own, of course)?

I’m currently reading Tessa Dawn, Blood Curse series. I like books that are outside of the norm. Author’s who didn’t stick with the traditional and who take big chances with their characters and stories.

Do you feel that this genre is growing? And what do you contribute to that growth or decline?

I do feel that the genre is expanding, and I think that’s because people are more accepting of the LGBT community. Not only that, readers are coming out of their shells and accepting the fact that they find two men or women or two on one, etc, to be extremely sexy. People are also seeing love is love and it is expressed in so many ways.

What is the most surprising thing you have learned about writing?

That there is so much involved with promoting. I’m sure every author wishes they could just write a book and the entire world instantly knows about it. But that just isn’t the case. It takes a lot of marketing and no one avenue can always be a success for every author. What works for one may not work for another, so you’re constantly trying to figure out what do I do next?

What are you working on now?

I’m currently writing the 2nd episode of the 4th season of my New Haven Series: Kingdom of Ara. It’s going to be explosive in more ways than one.

What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday night?

Write. I love writing. Or hanging out with friends when I can.

Tell us about the highest HIGH and lowest LOW in your career so far. How has it changed you?

My highest high happened when my book hit the no. 1 best seller’s spot in LGBT Erotic Horror and earned that coveted orange flag on Amazon. That was a dream come true. The was matched by making the top 100 authors in Horror. All of which I owe to my fans. My lowest low was suffering a wrist injury that affects how much I can write.
