Where Should I Start?

Where Should I Start?

Welcome to my new, mostly-updated website! I hope you find it easy to maneuver as well as useful. One question I get is “which of your books should I start with?” It’s a great question, but that’s going to vary from person to person. I wrote up a thing for a FB post and made sure to keep it this time, so I thought I’d share that here:

I write light and dark, usually with elements both. Usually, there’s humor in even my dark works, but in some cases, it’s morbid or nearly nonexistent. All of my books are on KU, and a few are 99c, so I hope you’ll take a peek.


Almost Strangers, my taboo book with M.A. Innes just released on March 23, 2018. Contemporary Romance. Incest, puppy play, sweetness, snark, and spice. Check out the first chapter here!

Too Close: Contemporary Romance. When Skylar meets his sister’s high school teacher, sparks fly… But he’s trapped in an abusive “relationship,” and his coping mechanisms of bad puns and jokes may not keep him afloat forever. Will he follow his heart or remain with a man he feels he owes everything to? This book contains scenes of domestic violence/abuse that some may find triggering to read. [Also available in Italian.]

Don’t Let Go (Broken Boys #1) [w/T.N. Nova]: Contemporary BDSM romance. Angst galore.
Trust Me (Broken Boys #1.5) [w/T.N. Nova]: Oz and Dylan celebrate Halloween. BDSM and angst.

As for the rest, I’m horrible at selling myself (*snerk* I’m mature. Really.), so my friend suggested describing my books as: “Expect the unexpected. Love, hate, betrayal, and darkness galore. Hot sex scenes.”

Undone [w/Morgan Noel]: Dark Urban Fantasy; Nontraditional Romance with an HFN/HEA. (No, nothing’s ever easy with me. ~122k words.] “A nephilim, a human, and an incubus walk into a fae’s casino. Who will be the first to come UNDONE? One of my lovelies called it “a wild ride through multiple realms full of dominance, deceit, manipulation, smoking hot sex, betrayal, sweetness, darkness, light, and more twists and turns than a roller coaster,” which is better than I can do! Undone portrays realistic themes of abuse and dubious consent. It also includes mature elements some readers may find unsettling.

Of All the Odds: When the fae play such deadly games, falling in love with one of them can have devastating consequences…

The rest of my (released) books are set in the Fate of the Fallen Universe:

Now that supernatural beings have seized control of the world, life has become a struggle for the humans who once held power. Witches, vampires, and werewolves determine the fate of every single human, but their moral compasses have long since been shattered. Rebels, free humans, and slaves all share dreams of hope, mercy, love, and more. But with their fate so uncertain, survival isn’t enough… and they may have to sacrifice what is nearest and dearest to them if they want to change their lives.

Books set in the The Fate of the Fallen universe range from romance to erotic romance to horror to dark erotica to everything in between. I enjoy exploring different aspects of the world, so there is a great deal of variation. In the end, the stories are really about love — and what people will do for it — in its many forms while living in the darkest of places.

The Tamed and Trained Trilogy

Puppy: Playful Dark Erotica. When he gives up his freedom, Caleb’s training begins. Will obedience and pleasure go hand in hand in his new life as Liam’s puppy?
Alpha: the follow-up to Puppy, is out now!
Master: the conclusion to the Tamed & Trained Trilogy

The Need Trilogy

Want: Dark Erotica. When Tavi gets the chance to turn the tables on his brother, will he take it? Or will he take the punishment Rex says is due for trying to run away? Age play, twincest, ABDL, spanking, dildo pony, drugging, and more.

[These characters do not appear in the FotF/SQ series, and there are no spoilers for it. Spoiled and Anticipation touch only lightly upon supernatural elements]

Gifts [99c] [MMF/MF]: Before Imriel Conti was condemned to a life of slavery, the young witch was sheltered… and separate from a world that damns him for his bloodline alone. Now that he is in the hands of Draven Foss and Callia Odessa, a sensual and controversial power couple at the pinnacle of supernatural society, all of that is about to change. Coveting him for his accursed but prized gift, they take him into their household, where he finds his morals and innocence equally compromised.

  1. I highly recommend Fate of the Fallen, it is an extraordinary series, with remarkable characters. I fell in love with it, especially with the amazing, evil, conniving, brilliant, fascinating Elias Ivers. #TeamEliasForever!
