Author’s Note

This anthology was hatched because dark romances and their creators have a stigma associated with them. Yes, we like coloring outside of the lines, and no, we don’t write your run-of-the-mill stories, but that shouldn’t devalue our art. Nor should it be grounds for it to be censored. 

Reading is subjective. What someone sees as black, others may see as pink, but that doesn’t make one opinion more valuable than the other. We all have different tastes in everything—that’s the beauty of being human. 

Beyond this note, we have included samples of our works, hoping to introduce new readers to our world and also give our loyal readers a chance to get lost in the stories they love with these bonus scenes. It’s only a taste, just three chapters each…but it’s enough for you to get addicted and want more. 

We cannot promise that when boy meets girl, they fall in love and then live happily ever after. However, what we can guarantee are kick-ass heroines and antiheroes you’ll love to hate from a bunch of authors who work their asses off to give life to the craziness inside their heads. 

So come, sit, and enjoy a taste of the darkness…you just may like it. 

We dare you. 

Love,

Monica, Aleatha, Amo, Callie, Cora, Giana, K Webster, Lili, Parker, S.M. Soto & Willow.

May 29, 2020 By

Release Date: August 11

They were taken.

 

 

Off the street. 
From parking lots. 
Malls. 
Playgrounds.

 

Snatched from life and thrust into hell.

 

They took Orion Darby on a perfect summer day, while she could still taste her first kiss on her lips.

 

She joined the others with chains on their ankles and scars on their souls.

 

They turned into nothing more than statistics.
Cold cases. Lost girls.
Years passed and the world forgot.

 

 
Until the day they escaped.
 
This is not about their captivity.

 

This is about their struggle to return to a life that’s passed them by.

 

This was the real world.

 

But for Orion, this was hell.

 

You see… freedom isn’t enough.

 

She needs blood.

BT Urruela is a combat wounded amputee, purple heart recipient, contemporary author who has written both independent and traditionally published books. He is a RARE under 40 award recipient, Rockwood Summit High School and Rockwood School District Hall of Fame inductee, Co-founder and Brand Ambassador for VETSports, Ambassador for Tampa Sports Academy, People Magazine Tribute for Heroes winner, Cover Model, Motivational Speaker and Philanthropist.
 
At an early age he began writing short stories having been inspired by reading books authored by RL Stein. His maternal grandmother’s bookshelf was filled with literature that inspired his young mind and cultivated his vivid imagination. 

 

Upon graduation from high school his desire to have a 20-year military career was cut drastically short by an improvised explosive device. Taking the life of his commander, and leaving the remaining four team members badly wounded. 

 

After careful consideration and multiple surgeries, he along with the guidance of his doctors made the decision to amputate. It was the only surgery he ever left with a smile on his face, as if a weight had been lifted. He struggled for two more years through 4-5 hours of physical therapy a day, five days a week to get adapted to his new prosthetic. He medically retired from the Army with high hopes. His focus on restoring his physical shape being the most eminent battle caused him to neglect his psychological state.

 

Meeting people was difficult and there were very few options for veterans to utilize that would stimulate friendship, and ultimately, allow communication barriers to be breached. After moving to Tampa, Florida, he co-founded the veteran community sports nonprofit, VETSports, with two other combat wounded veterans. It was their mission to change the way veterans transitioned back to civilian life through organized team sports, community involvement, and leadership opportunities.  

 

After being invited to attend a photoshoot with acclaimed photographer Michael Stokes, he flew to California in December of 2014, with incredible excitement. His photos were so widely publicized that he soon gained exposure to the literary world like he’d always dreamed of. That opportunity launched him into his present writing career. He co-wrote the novel ‘A Lover’s Lament with author KL Grayson. The following year he released first solo novel, ‘Into the Nothing’ and will be releasing Wicked Little Words with author Stevie J. Cole. He is now writing full-time.

The feud between Weston Lockwood and me started at the altar. Only neither of us attended the wedding, and the nuptials happened decades before either of us was born. Our grandfathers had been best friends and business partners, at least up until my grandfather’s wedding day—when his bride-to-be blurted out she couldn’t marry him because she was also in love with Weston‘s grandfather. The two men spent years fighting over Grace Copeland, who also happened to be their third
business partner.  But in the end, neither man could steal half of her heart away from the other.
Eventually, they all went their separate ways.  Our grandfathers married other women, and the two men became one of the biggest business rivals in history. Our fathers continued the family tradition of feuding.
And then Weston and I did, too.
For the most part, we kept as much distance as possible.
Until the day the woman who started the feud died—and unexpectedly left one of the most
valuable hotels in the world to our grandfathers to share.
Now I’m stuck in a hotel with the man I was born to hate, trying to unravel the mess our families inherited. As usual, it didn’t take long for us to be at each other’s throats.
Weston Lockwood was everything I hated: tall, smart, cocky, and too gorgeous for his
own good.  We were fire and ice.
But that shouldn’t be an issue. Our families were used to being at war. There was just
one minor problem, though.  Every time Weston and I fought, we somehow wound up in bed.

Release Day Blitz & Reviews – Inside Affair, Ella Frank

May 27, 2020 By

Inside Affair, the first in an all-new contemporary MM series from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank is available now!

Prime1 AMAZON

Xander

If I had to describe Sean Bailey, it would be: a surly, temperamental pain in my ass. Never in that equation would I ever include the word boyfriend—and not just because he’s straight.

The older brother of my life-long best friend, Sean is a detective for the Chicago PD, and is also known as Detective “Dick” for being…well, a surly, temperamental pain in everyone’s ass. He also happens to be the best they have, which is why I find myself on his doorstep the night my life is threatened by an anonymous stalker.

I only wanted the name of a bodyguard; I didn’t expect for Sean to volunteer for the job. Now, not only do I have a bodyguard, I also have a fake boyfriend.

Sean

It must be so hard to be Alexander Thorne, the number one prime-time news anchor in the country, with millions of dollars and a car that costs more than my house. I mean, I’m allowed to give him a hard time about it, but when some creep decides to cross the line and go after him, they’re gonna have to answer to me.

Going undercover has never been an issue in the past, so I don’t see why there’d be a problem now. Xander and I have known each other for years, so this should be a breeze. Except suddenly my stomach’s flipping when he looks my way, and my body comes alive whenever he brushes by me. I know I’m good at my job and playing a character and all, but this is getting out of hand.

I can’t be sure that either of us are playing anymore.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Inside Affair is the first book in the Prime Time series by Ella Frank. It is a spin-off from her Confessions series but you do not need to read it to start this one. I do recommend reading it though since it’s amazing!! If you did read it then you have met Sean, Bailey’s older brother and Xander, Bailey’s best friend. This is definitely not a pair that I saw coming…
Xander has a stalker. Sean Volunteers to protect him. Two men who have known each other for most of their lives. Two men who fight whenever they are in the same room. Two men who have never had anything in common except for their love for Bailey. Two men who didn’t expect any of this.
Sean is straight. Always has been. He has known Xander for other thirty years so why does he feel a flutter every time Xander looks his way? Why does he want to taste those lips? Why does he want to impress the man who has been a pain in his ass all of his life? He is doesn’t understand it but he can’t exactly hide it either. He can’t if they have to be in the same room 24/7 until the stalker is caught.
Xander has alway known Sean as Detective Dick, as Henri (Bailey’s BF) likes to call him but now he is seeing other sides of the man. He doesn’t know what do to do about it. Sean is straight so it must just be the situation they are in. A little crush on the man protecting his life, right?
Oh man…these two! I love them. From beginning to end they are have the best banter. The made me laugh, swoon, and tear up. It’s like they are seeing each other for the first time. At the same time they know how to push the other’s buttons. It’s such a fun ride full of discovery, suspense, laughter, and respect. I can’t wait for the next book!
Quotes:
“News flash, Mr. Anchorman. I would never date someone like you either. You know, since you have a cock.”
“You put me in anything pastel and I will shoot you,” I felt better than I had in days.
“Blinding…I know I said it before but damn, Xander. You step into view and there’s nothing but you.”
5 out of 5 stars

Inside Affair is the first book in a new series by Ella Frank. It’s a spin-off of her Confessions series but you don’t have to read those to thoroughly enjoy this! Although, you should because they are great! Sean is Bailey’s brother and Xander is Bailey’s best friend. Sean is a detective with a gruff and broody attitude. Xander is an anchorman who’s poised, wealthy and very put together. Xander needs a bodyguard and Sean volunteers for the job. He’s known Xander’s for years and he needs to be the one to protect him. Turns out they need to pretend to be together to catch the stalker. Sean is straight, but he’s seeing Xander in a whole new light. Had he always been that handsome? Have his eyes always been that striking? He’s never been attracted to a man before, but he can’t stop looking at Xander and imagining his hands on him. Xander is out and proud and he has to be imagining the way Sean’s looking at him. Right? He can’t be watching his lips and casually toughing him to easily for real. He’s just good at being undercover. They have always had a love/hate relationship. They tease, they make fun of each other and they push each other’s buttons. Turns out that was just foreplay. As they get closer and closer while Sean is protecting Xander, they also realize they aren’t quite faking it anymore. While they are busy getting to know each other,  Xander is still in danger. How far will Sean go to protect Xander? Holy cliffhanger! I need the next book now! But, I can wait because I know Ella and she loves us! I loved this story! Sean and Xander’s banter is so hilarious, I was laughing out loud! I loved the way Sean was just himself and the way he loved needling Xander. Their chemistry is off the charts that I was literally fanning myself! And they are both so sexy and handsome, but total opposites. I love a good friends/enemies to lovers story and I’m totally invested and hooked and I can’t wait for more!

 

“I don’t have a problem with pretending to like dick, so you shouldn’t have a problem pretending to like.”

“A dick?”

 

“Relax, Xander? It’s not like I suddenly think we’re soul mates. Even if you do kiss like you should be giving a master class on it.”

Jackson_ecover2 Book 5

The devil came to me in disguise. Too bad I didn’t notice until it was far too late.

Vanessa:

The devil doesn’t always wear an evil mask.

Sometimes, he appears in the most beautiful form.

Like the super-hot bad boy with the dirty-blond hair and a wicked glint in his blue eyes who swept in out of nowhere, stealing all the air from my lungs.

I thought he was my savior.

But he’s my ruination.

And he’s just taken a machete to my heart.

Jackson:

For years, my rage seethed under the surface. Hidden behind a cloudy haze of my poison of choice.

But now, the fog has cleared.

And I’m out for blood.

I will annihilate those responsible for taking my sister from me.

Except he’s not here, so I go for the next best target.

The woman he abandoned.

Until it suited him to drag her into this messed-up elite world.

Sucks to be her.

Because when I’m done with Vanessa, she’ll wish she was dead.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Holy. Fuck. I really could end it there. 
Jackson is the fifth book in the Rydeville Elite series by Siobhan Davis. You can read as standalone but I highly recommend reading the series to get to know the background. And to also get to know Jackson, he is my favorite from the series with his shameless flirting, humor, and tenderness. If you happened to read Ruse, a bonus book in the series than you very briefly met Vanessa. I didn’t see their story coming and I loved it. 
Vanessa was on her own. Cut off from her family and their support. She isn’t the same woman she was a year ago so when two boys from her past show up to the diner she works at she is surprised and confused. Especially, after Jackson asks her out on a date. While they spent summers together in the Hamptons, he didn’t even give her the time of day so she doesn’t get it. She wasn’t sure what his intentions are but after seeing another side of him, she knows he could be trouble for other reasons. She could fall for him and after he gets bored then what? All the men in her past has either used, abused, or abandoned her. Jackson had the power to break her heart. One she has built steel around. Can she trust the reformed partying playboy? 
Jackson knew he would hurt her. He was set on revenge and this was the only way to do it. He would use her for his gain. To bring down the man who took his sister. That man broke his sister and now he was going to break the girl he left behind. What he didn’t expect was Vanessa to be so different from their days in the Hamptons. This woman had secrets hiding under her innocent act and he vowed to get them out of her no matter what it took. He was not letting anyone get in his way of his revenge. 
I can’t really say anything more. I can say that I read almost the whole book in one morning (I am not a night reader and I promptly passed out). I had to know what was going to happen. What kind of fucked up stuff was up next. You know if you have read the series, you know exactly what I am talking about. It’s not always an easy read but worth it. It’s addicting and not full of rainbows and butterflies. Nope. It’s still poetic though. These college students have gone are still going through some twisted shit. And now Jackson and Vanessa are front and center of it all. 
Overall…it’s an unexpected dark romance full of twists, turns, passion, friendship, family, and love. I loved Vanessa, she is a stronger than she thinks and she definitely has to be strong to get through this. I can’t wait for the next book!! Sawyer, you are so fucked. 
Quotes: 
“So, why are you scared?” 
“I’m scared of feeling, and you, Jackson Lauder, have the potential to make me feel all kinds of feels.”
“What was that?” I murmur as he scoops me up, cradling me in his arms. He chuckles as I fight a yawn. My body is gently jostled as he walks. 
“That, baby, was the Jackson Lauder experience.” He places me in bed, carefully removing my dress before pulling the comforter up over me. “Also known as ruining you for all other men.” (🔹Haha! So Jackson.) 
“Wow.” Xavier says. “You are straight fire, Van. It’s almost enough to turn me hetero.” He winks, and I giggle.
** I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Release Day Blitz & Review – Wicked Secret, Sawyer Bennett

May 26, 2020 By

 

Wicked Secret (Wicked Horse Vegas, Book #8)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: May 26, 2020

 

Synopsis:
Those that truly know August Greenfield, will tell you that I live my life to the fullest. Work hard as part of the team at Jameson Force Security but play just as hard at The Wicked Horse Vegas. I have no regrets about my life.

Well, maybe just one.

Leighton Hale was my first love and the woman I wanted to spend my life with, but one day she was just gone. Vanished without a trace. Even my extensive contacts as part of the team at Jameson left me empty-handed in my search for answers. My single remorse is never being able to find out what happened to her, because no matter how difficult the truth may be, it can’t be as bad as never knowing at all.

Ten years later, a knock on my front door brings me face-to-face with the woman I thought I’d never see again and nothing in my life could have prepared me for the secrets she holds.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Wicked Secret is the eigth book in the hot AF Wicked Horse Vegas series. I have been following this series since the beginning, I even go way back to the original Wicked Horse series. They are also so deliciously sexy. We have met August in this series and even though he works at Jameson he hasn’t been in the books yet. I am sure that will change.
August and Leighton were together for two years before she vanished without a trace. One night they were talking about their future and they next she was gone and now ten years later, she was on his doorstep. Even with all his connections at Jameson Security he wasn’t able to locate her and now she was there for him. He had questions and she had all the answers. Secrets he didn’t expect to hear. Now, that she was in his city he was not going to let her go. They were two different people now and he was going to show her who he was now. A protective man who had his kinks. Could she handle the man he has turned into? Will she indulge with him at Wicked Horse?
I can’t get into the full story. Will not go there with the secrets but I can say that these two have so much to go through. Their past, present, and future need to be discussed. But, they can have some fun in between, right? Hell yeah! Damn, they are fire!
Overall…it’s another wicked sexy ride in the series. It’s also full of heart, sadness, passion, and sweetness. I can’t wait for the next book. Bring on the billionaire!
Quotes:
“If you’d just give her a chance, I know you can learn to love her again.”
“Do your worst, August.”
“Just a reminder… you need to be quiet. And if you can’t be, just remember I have no problem filling your mouth with something.”

EXCERPT

EXCERPT – ADAM

 

She holds my hand as we walk, squeezing it a little. It feels natural, but then again, weird.

This girl—woman, now, I suppose—she has been off limits to me for so long. It’s really hard to get that out of my head. And sometimes, when I look at Maggie, I see Indie.

It’s just… weird.

Indie doesn’t lead me to the front porch. She takes me around the side. “Where are we going?”

“To spy on them, of course.”

“Ahh, I don’t know.”

She stops us on the side of the house in front of the office window. “Stop being a baby. Don’t you want to be with McKay?”

And this is weird too. Since when do I talk about my feelings with Indie? With anyone, actually?

“You’re really trying hard to find an excuse, aren’t you?”

“I’m not.” It comes out defensive. “Of course I love McKay. Of course I want to be with him.”

“So what’s the problem?”

I hesitate. She just shakes her head at me and drops my hand. “Fine. Then stay here. I’ll spy.”

She turns away and continues walking along the side of the house, then looks over her shoulder one last time before she disappears around the corner.

I jog to catch up.

Fuck it.

When I round the corner, Indie has her face pressed against the glass of the family room window. The only lights on inside are the ones under the kitchen cabinets. So it’s a low light. A soft glow of yellow But it’s more than enough to see them.

Donovan and McKay are kissing.

I exhale and then heat fills me up. And I don’t remember breathing, but I exhale again. And then again. My chest rising and falling as emotions flood into my bloodstream.

“It’s kinda hot,” Indie whispers.

I have to agree. It kinda is. But it’s a lot of other things too.

They are both shirtless. And I’m not gonna lie, Donovan is just as nice to look at as McKay.

That’s not the only reason it’s hot though. This looks like a real fucking kiss. McKay is even kissing him back. And then Donovan’s hand slips down McKay’s chest, then down his ridiculous sixty-four-pack abs and rests on the waistband of his jeans.

Indie sucks in a little breath of surprise. “Damn. I didn’t think they’d… ooohh. Wow.”

Donovan is gripping McKay’s cock through his jeans. And McKay pulls out of the kiss. I have a moment of hope that he’ll push Donovan away. McKay looks down at Donovan’s hand as Donovan grips his cock and begins massaging his hand over his groin area.

But McKay doesn’t push him away. He closes his eyes and leans back against the counter. Practically giving Donovan permission to do whatever he wants.

5 out of 5 stars

Never Say Never is the third book in the Lost In New York series by the talented Felice Stevens. I have been loving the series and have been waiting for Frisco’s story since we first met him. He’s wealthy, mouthy, handsome, a major playboy and a bit of a princess, but we love him! He’s not apologetic for his life choices or the men he takes home. He is who he is and that’s it. He’s a tad dramatic and his sense of humor is a little off color, but he’s fiercely loyal. And he’s met his match in Torre Rossi. Torre doesn’t do one night stands but there was something about Frisco. He never expected to hear from him, but he kept showing up and Torre kept giving him a hard time for ghosting him. Frisco didn’t know why he kept going back to Torre. He doesn’t do relationships or love. He’s very up front about that. But he wants Torre. They aren’t exactly truthful with each other and they both have pasts that don’t want to be buried. But together they make each other better. Torre makes Frisco want things he never dreamed of. Torre isn’t going to let Frisco get away with his behavior. Can these two men who have more in common than they thought make it work? Is love even possible? I loved this story! I laughed, teared up, got mad, got hot and bothered and laughed some more. I loved Torre and his loud, intrusive Italian family! They made me miss mine! And they made me want to eat pasta, drink a Negroni and go back home to NY. I loved watching Frisco give in and fall. It wasn’t easy for him, but he found his other half on the other side.

 

“You’re so uncomfortable and out of place here, you look like a tourist.”

“That’s the rudest thing anyone’s ever said to me. Fuck off.”

 

“Fishing for compliments?”

“Nope. I know you’re crazy about me.”

“I always wondered how we fit three in our bed: you, me and your ego.”

“It’s king-sized, baby.”

 
 
Felice Stevens has always been a romantic at heart. She believes that while life is tough, there is always a happy ending just around the corner. Her characters have to work for it, however. Like life in NYC, nothing comes easy, and that includes love.
 
She lives in New York City and has way too much black in her wardrobe yet can’t stop buying “just one more pair” of black pants. Felice is a happily addicted Bravo and Say Yes to the Dress addict and proud of it. And let’s not get started on House Hunters. Her dream day starts out with iced coffee and ends with Prosecco, because…why shouldn’t it? You can find her procrastinating on FB in her reader group, Felice’s Breakfast Club.

For Samuel Grayson, everything is black or white. As a funeral director, there’s no room for in-between. He’s accustomed to
dealing with life and death, though he’s definitely more comfortable with the latter. Especially when it comes to a chaotic, petite, feisty ball of energy. Freedom Rayne. Samuel’s pretty sure her goal is to make his life hell, or so it appears. When Samuel boards a flight to Las Vegas for his sister’s wedding, the last thing he expects is to share it with the one woman who drives him crazy.
Freedom is eccentric and completely content with it. Floating around from job to job, she finds peace and tranquility in
everything she does, including tormenting poor, uptight Samuel Grayson. When she finds herself on the same flight as him for her best friend’s wedding, she sees this as the perfect opportunity to get under his skin, something she tries
to do every chance she gets. The problem is the more time she spends with him, the more she likes him.
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? Not for Samuel and Freedom. Will they be able to forget about their trip when
they return to Rockland Falls? What if one mistake turns out to be the best thing ever?

5 out of 5 stars
Echoes of You is Margaret McHeyzer’s newest emotionally raw standalone. I don’t even need to read the synopsis to know that I will be needing tissues and lots of snacks since I won’t be wanting to get off the couch. Once again, I was right. I read most of the book in one day and it’s not an easy or short read. I really can’t say much without spoiling the story so I will try to make it fast.
She was adopted at the age of seven and that was when she met her best friend and sister, Tina. They grew up in a loving household full of love, laughter, and a special bond. They even share a birthday and just turned eighteen. Family is everything. They even found men who could be the love of their lives. It was perfect until everything changed and now she is confused about everything from her past to her present. It was time for her to fight the demons of her past. Ones she didn’t even realize were there…
This story is not easy. This is not your typical romance. You will swoon but you will also be heartbroken. You will fall but you will also cry. It’s an unique type of love story. It’s not only about a couple. It’s about a family who needs to heal. I love that Margaret writes stories that need to be told. They make you think about the world around you. They make you want to help in ways you never thought of before.
Overall…its a beautifully written story that I will never forget. I cried. I laughed. I swooned. I got angry. I cried again. The characters are remarkably strong, beautiful, and sweet. Once I really started I didn’t want to put the book down. I had to know what was going to happen next with this family.
Quotes:
“There’s too much red around me.”
“We each have a role to play.”
“Pinky promise it is.” He holds his pinky out.
“You know, you can’t break a pinky promise.”
“I have no intention of foolishly violating something so sacred,” he teases
Excerpt
Prologue
The palms of my hands are sweating. Standing in front of an unassuming building, I look up to see its sheer size. Still, it’s inconspicuous because it looks exactly like all the other buildings surrounding it. The sun breaks out just behind the brick building, casting the entrance into shadow. Funny, that. Because I’ve been living in the shadows all my life. Now is the time for me to come out of the shadows, and speak my truth.
Speak our truth.
There’s a line of cars in front of the building, all marked with the same lettering.
My heart beats quickly as a shock of finality runs through my veins.
This is where part of me will die and another part of me will live.
All my life I’ve been worried about what people think of me. But I can’t continue on in a
life where I’m only breathing. I need to learn to live.
I take several deep breaths, ready to cross the street and take the leap I’ve been
longing for.
“You can do this,” I say to myself. The sun is moving higher, the shadow becoming smaller.
Yes, you can.
I look to my left, and to my right, checking for oncoming cars.
I keep walking, crossing the street. I know if I stop for even a second, I’ll talk
myself out of going.
You can do it.
I walk until I come to the automated doors that slowly slide open.
Hopefully, they’ll believe you.
I head to the counter, where a woman with dark hair pulled back in a severe ponytail and
wearing a uniform is working on a computer. She looks up, but remains seated.
“Can I help you?” she says in a flat voice.
My hands tremble, so I knit them together to stop the emotion bursting to come forward.
“I, um,” my voice quivers with uncertainty.
“Are you okay?” She stands and comes closer to the counter. She looks behind me,
searching for a hint as to why I’m so edgy.
“I, um, need to talk to the police unit who deals with sexual abuse.”

 

Author Bio
STRONG, BRAVE AND COURAGEOUS
CHARACTERS.

**Write something worth reading**
I’m Margaret and I’m a self-published author.

Recently I was
fortunate in obtaining New York Times best-selling status on my YA/NA book –
Ugly, and my YA book – Mistrust.
My last six books have been YA and I’m completely in love with the genre. I
love being able to communicate with people through my words and stories.My writing genres all differ, but the one thing I keep consistent is my
heroines. All my female lead characters are strong, gutsy and not the ‘perfect’
woman. While my books all have romantic elements in them, they aren’t just
about the romance. They’re about finding strength, acceptance and making life
long connections.I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I have while writing them.
