When a Moth Loved a Bee by Pepper Winters



When a Moth Loved a Bee by Pepper Winters is now live!


New York Times Bestseller, Pepper Winters, delivers a brand new High Fantasy Romance.

“It’s taking everything I have not to touch you. Not because I want to make you mine but because every part of me screams that you already are.”

A pack of wolves hunt a girl who takes her last breath by a river’s edge.

She is found and nursed back to health by the kind-hearted Nhil people.

She has no memory.

No past.

And is given a choice that could change her forgotten life forever.

A pack of wolves adopt a man who begs for death in the grasslands.

Blood revives him. Flesh strengthens him. All while the alpha watches him as if he knows who he is.

He has no memory.

No past.

And yet…he’s drawn toward the smoke of a faraway clan.

And in that smoke, he finds a girl with the same mark on her thigh, the same empty mind, and the same forgotten language on her lips.

He’s convinced they know each other.

She’s certain they are strangers.

But the more time they spend together, the more tangled the truth becomes.

Their forgetfulness was deliberate.

To keep them apart.

To keep them lost.

To keep them from claiming their true power.

Because in that power exists a terrible choice.

A choice that could destroy the world…

…or each other.

When a Moth Loved a Bee is the first volume in the Epic Fantasy Romance Destini Chronicles.

A heavily romantic, spice-filled fantasy set in a world where life and death, shadows and stars watch over two forbidden lovers whose powers are best left forgotten.

Before Us by Jewel E. Ann



Before Us by Jewel E. Ann is now live!


I never saw him coming.

I didn't know what would happen after my client found me sleeping in my car.

I'd been cleaning his house as his wife was dying.

I didn't expect them to invite me to live with them.

I didn't expect Suzie to become my lifeline—until she was gone.

I didn't expect him to ask me to marry him when he found out I needed medical insurance.

I didn't expect to fall in love with a grieving man.

There are so many reasons to keep my distance from Zach. Every tender moment secreted away.

When we're not together, I miss the man I call husband.

Does he miss his wife? If so, which one?

Prince of Hate by Jagger Cole


Prince of Hate by Jagger Cole is now live!

He’s my curse. I’m his cure.

To settle my father’s debt, I’ve taken his place as prisoner to a monster.

A dangerously beautiful beast of a man with cold blue eyes and ice around his heart. A vengeful, reclusive billionaire cloaked in scars and haunted by pain and violence.

He looks at me like he can’t decide if he’ll kiss me or destroy me. He has rules I’ll follow and commands I’ll obey—willingly, as per our deal.

But “eagerly” isn’t something I expected. “Desperately” makes it even worse.

Because with every possessive touch.

Every brutal, stolen kiss.

Every claimed part of me, piece by sinful piece.

I fall deeper into the beast’s clutches. And closer to finding the answer to the curse that will destroy us both.

Prince of Hate is a standalone dark age-gap romance with mafia, forced-proximity, grumpy/sunshine and “touch her and I’ll unalive you” themes. Readers are advised to read the TW inside. No cliffhanger; HEA included.

A reader first and foremost, Jagger Cole cut his romance writing teeth penning various fan-fiction stories years ago. After deciding to hang up his writing boots, Jagger worked in advertising pretending to be Don Draper.

Now, Dad to two little princesses and King to a Queen, Jagger is thrilled to be back at the keyboard.

When not writing or reading romance books, he can be found woodworking, enjoying good whiskey, and grilling outside--rain or shine.

Vicious Vengeance Duet by Mila Kane


Duet Title: Vicious Vengeance Duet
Titles: Wicked Heir ~ Savage Throne
Author: Mila Kane
Release: February 1, 2023
Genre: Dark Mafia Romance
Cover Design: Angela Haddon Book Cover Design

“... a sinfully tempting blend of darkness, heat, drama and intensity.” ★★★★★ Gladys (Wicked Heir)
“This was amazing. The build up. The drama, the chemistry. I loved every single part of this duet.” ★★★★★ Mindy (Savage Throne)

I thought he was my hero, until he locked me in a cage.

Living alone in New York, I never felt safe, but I couldn’t leave.
I was here to find the man I’d lost, seven years ago.
I had no idea that he’d already found me.
I had no idea that he was watching me, controlling my every movement.
He was no longer the rebel kid from across the tracks, now, he’s heir to the most brutal bratva the city has ever known.
I’m in love with a monster, and he’s watching my every move.

Wicked Heir is the 1st book in the Vicious Vengeance duet, featuring a dark, tortured anti-hero and the plucky object of his obsession. It is a dark mafia romance, and as such contains themes which some readers may find triggering. Please read with caution.

Monsters are made, not born. He was both. I just didn’t realise it until it was too late.

He forgave me for running once.
This time, if he finds me, there’ll be no escape.
He’ll make me his wife, even if he has to carry me down the aisle to do it.
And that’s before he knows what I’m hiding from him.
A secret nine months in the making…

Savage Throne is book 2 in the Vicious Vengeance duet, featuring a dark, tortured anti-hero and the plucky object of his obsession. It is a dark mafia romance, and as such contains themes that some readers may find triggering. Please read with caution.

My Review
5 Stars
Book 1:
Wicked Heir by Mila Kane is the First book in the Chernov Bratva Duet. This starts the story of Molly/Mallory and Kirill. Kirill and Molly meet in high school and they become best friends and something more. When Molly father ends up owing money to the Bratva, her father offers her up. Molly tells Kirill this who of course tells her he will fix it. Kirill hasn't wanted to be a part of the mafia but when Molly gets in danger he goes to his father who is the Bratva that her father owes money too. Of course his father says that he will fix but Kirill will have to pay a price. Now in their present day we learn Molly's father took off with them and Molly has been trying to find Kirill. Kirill is a totally different person now who wants revenge for the deal he made with his father only to have Molly run off. So their story starts fully when he finds her. This book is a dark over the top anti-hero (my favorite). and will end with a cliffhanger.
Book 2:
Savage Throne by Mila Kane is book Two in the Vicious Vengeance Duet.  This continues the story of Molly/Mallory and Kirill that started in the previous book 'Wicked Heir'. So, you will need to read that book before starting this one.  This book does pick up where we left off with Nikolai (Kirill's brother) who has taken Molly and has filled in the blanks of some of the things she didn't know.  Kirill going crazy to get her back. This duet was nothing short of page turning for me. I loved it and I hope to read more from this author...hopefully soon Nikolai’s and Sofia story.


Black Ties and White Lies by Kat Singleton


Black Ties and White Lies by Kat Singleton is now live!


Life is never black and white.

One minute you’re a struggling graphic designer in LA that's finally coming to terms with being single forever, and the next you're flying to New York in a private jet to get engaged to your ex-boyfriend’s older brother.

At least...that’s what everyone thinks.

Forced to clean up his playboy image in order to protect his company, Beckham Sinclair, the city’s most eligible billionaire bachelor, wants me to be his fake fiancĂ©e and personal assistant.

Now I'm spending every spare second with a man I thought I’d never see again.

My freshly mended heart has barely recovered from the first time a Sinclair broke it. But with each passing day, Beck’s dirty mouth and lingering stares make me question his motives—and mine.

As the line blurs between real and pretend, only one thing is certain: there are secrets hiding in this city full of black ties and white lies.

Show Me the Way by TC Matson


Show Me the Way by TC Matson is now live!

Eight years of marriage and a beautiful son didn't stop my husband from walking out on us.
He got the house, all the money, and a girlfriend.
I got the SUV, a few boxes of things, and our son.
I'm starting over and it's terrifying.
A new town. A new job. A new home.
My goal is to care for my son and give him a semblance of normality while I pick up my broken pieces and mend my shattered self-esteem.
The last thing I expected was for my tattoo-covered landlord to nestle his way into my heart.
He's broody and quiet, all grunts and head nods.
Letting him close means opening myself back up to the potential of getting hurt.
I've got my son to think about.
So why do I lie in bed at night thinking of him?

My demons haunt me. They run through my veins.
I accepted long ago that my life will never have a happy ending.
My gray world will never have any color.
Until her.
The strong, single mother with eyes the color of sapphire gems.
All the colors in her world shine a light into my damaged and broken soul.
But I'm incapable of giving her love and affection—all the things she deserves.
My secrets will have her running away.
However, that doesn't stop me from wanting to stain her world with my darkness.
Taint it with gray.
Little do I know, she's the very air I didn't know I needed.
