Those words changed my life, and not for the better.
They were wrong, of course. I wasn’t dead. But I was set up.
After being charged with a string of offences–and made an example of by my political minded father–I’m eventually released back into Shadow Grove with one thing on my mind.
Someone is going to pay for derailing my carefully laid out future. Someone is going to catch the full force of my hate. How very convenient that someone just moved into the bedroom down the hall from me.
Archer D’Ath and his boys messed with the wrong chick and they’re about to learn just how cold Madison Kate’s hate can run.
HATE is a full length mature college/new adult romance with enemies-to-lovers/love-hate themes. This is a reverse harem novel, meaning the main character has more than one love interest. This is book one of four in the series.
OMG! JUST OMG! I love Tate James, little bit of a lady crush, she knows it. This book was everything. The silent reverse harem that just sneaks up on you! Madison Kate, what a mouth full of a name, you know she is trouble. After her mother dies on Halloween, the night just isn’t the same for her. Thus, MK finds herself at a MMA underground fight and all hell breaks loose when a shot fires and a girl ends up being killed. Was the bullet for MK though? She looked just like her. I feel bad for MK, there is so much mystery in this book and it’s killing me! Now we have the guys, Kody, Steele, and Archer. They all have their successful lives after the night that changed everything for MK and her reputation is ruined. AND they live with her now! HA! I would be epically pissed off as well. This book has a lot of steam, RH action, and lots of WHYS! Of course we get the cliffhanger and it was soooo good. I almost didn’t want to read this because I knew it would be. I just can’t! Loved it, read it and you will know why!
It’s also what brings me to Rawley Heights. No one would willingly come here otherwise. But me? I don’t have a choice.
Here, everyone fears the Heights Crew. They’re not just some small-town gang, they’re the real deal. Crime. Sex. Murder. Angry, self-obsessed dudes with bad attitudes.
And they’re exactly who I need to get my vengeance from.
I have my work cut out for me, but don’t worry, they have no idea who they’re dealing with.
I’m counting on it.
Uppercut Princess is a dark high school enemies to lovers RH with bully themes.
This book has Fire! Kyla is our MC who is out for revenge. She has lost those closest to her and needs to devour those who took them from her. She has enrolled herself into the Heights with one goal, revenge. The only way she can do this is by getting “in” with the Heights Crew. She needs to impress Johnny, AKA Rocket, but along the way finds Oscar and Brawler….maybe Mag, still undecided about him. After proving herself Rocket falls for Kyla but doesn’t think he needs to keep his parts in his pants because, Kyla will be his in the end…so it doesn’t matter. So if you don’t like cheating, be warned. I LOVED this RH book. It was a little slow burn at the beginning but it picks up hot. The workout scenes with Brawler, woohoo! This book ends with a cliffhanger after Kyla is chosen to fight…oeeewee that ending!
The words scrawled on the back of my newest stalker mail makes my blood run cold. I have no idea if it’s the lie I know, or one that I don’t.
Since arriving back into Shadow Grove, I’ve been stalked, tormented, chased and almost killed. I’ve been lied to, repeatedly, by people I was growing to trust.
That word haunts me. Someone knows more about my life than I do. Someone is taunting me with answers and teasing me with secrets. Am I desperate enough to fall for more deception?
Archer and his boys made a huge mistake when they lied to me. They thought they could play me but they’re about to learn that they’ve met their match.
No one stabs Madison Kate and gets away with it.
LIAR is a full length (448 pages, 102,978 words) college/new adult romance with enemies-to-lovers/love-hate themes. This is a reverse harem novel, meaning the main character has more than one love interest. This is book TWO of FOUR in the series.
Liar by Tate James! Well you know that there is going to be mystery, drama, and action. This book has everything! It will keep you on your toes while you try to decide for yourself if Kody, Steel, and Archy are good enough to earn MK’s trust back. This book focused at lot more on Steel, who I love btw. The chemistry between Steel and MK is off the charts. Kody is so sweet and has a dark side to him as well. The steam! Right when two of the three boys gets on MK’s good side, NOPE! Blinded by the light…you know the song. Poor MK! She just can’t help but have a trusting heart. You can’t help but just binge this book! Archy is still a moody a**hole who can’t help but toe the line between lust and hate. MK, her pour heart, I just want to reach in and help it pump in the right direction! I’m still out on the verdict that her BFF has something to do with her stalker. MK is still being stalked, the barbies are creepy, there is still a killer out trying to hurt MK, and the three guys just don’t know how to open up. The secrets get even bigger. AH, cliffhanger because Tate James loves to tease us!! Seriously! That ending…..I don’t eve what to say it, but the third book is going to be a trip!
Everything changed the night he betrayed me, and now, the game has entered a new level.
Galen did me a favor, reminding me the only person I can count on is myself, and I’m more determined than ever to avenge my father’s death and avoid the destiny Sinner has mapped out for me.
Saint is used to calling the shots, but there are new rules, my rules, and if he wants me in his life, and in his bed, he’ll toe the line. They all will, because I can’t pull this off alone, and they owe me.
Sinner thinks he’s in control, but forcing me into initiation plays right into my hands. War has come to Lowell as rival gangs battle The Sainthood for ultimate power, and I enjoy rebelling from the inside, placing more obstacles in Sinner’s path while I exact my revenge.
But I’m not some innocent thirteen-year-old anymore—I have blood on my hands and lethal enemies on my tail.
I’m playing a dangerous game, especially where my heart is concerned, but there’s no turning back. I haven’t come this far to walk away empty-handed, and the more secrets we uncover, the more we realize how far-reaching the betrayal and corruption extend, and there’s no choice anymore.
The Sainthood must be taken down, and we’re the only ones who can do it.
This is book two of three and it’s not a standalone read. Due to dark themes and content, this #whychoose romance is only recommended to readers aged eighteen and older.
Rebellion starts right up like it was the next page from Resurrection. Harlow is going to have to get herself out of this pickle if she wants to survive. The guys are freaking out and they know they have work to do because of what Galen did. I for sure wouldn’t want to open my heart again, I would think the same way she is, not wanting to trust and felt betrayed by her new lovers. Her broken heart needs to harden! And it does, but for how long? When you have these sexy as sin guys, Saint, Galen, Caz, and Theo, and a side of Diesel to rile the guys up, it’s going to be good! Harlow is now off to initiation and we get to see her in action a bit and how her training with Diesel has made her a killing machine. She proves that she is better than even the guys and things will be going her way now. This book has a lot of drama and action for you to read through. The guys are starting to be okay with actually sharing Harlow, but it’s not like they have a choice, they can’t go against her or she will just leave them. HA, like she actually would. Her and Caz, so sexy. She just puts Saint in his place. And oh the sexy scenes! We even get a few scenes from Theo! I love Theo the most. Heartbreaking end and cliffhanger. I was so sad!! Get Book 3, Reign, soon here!

Onto the Interview!
Q: What got you into witting? A:To be perfectly honest with you I couldn’t find anything on the market that sparked my interest in the least bit. So I decided to write something that I was interested in. If it happened to take off then wonderful.
Q: What is your favorite book/series of yours? A: Well that’s honestly a toss-up. I have Aurora series which is shifter paranormal reverse harem that falls on the side of thriller/horror. Then I have Once Upon a Raven that is a Edgar Allan Poe inspired book that is the first of many to come from the Poe inspired series I intend to write.
Q: What got you into writing thriller reverse harem books? A: Reverse harem is fun all by itself. But I tend to like my horror movies thriller action movies things of that nature so I brought that love and passion into my stories.
Q: What is your favorite character from your books? A: I’d have to say that Alaric and Jayce are my favorites from Aurora series. And Kol is my favorite from the Raven.
Q: How did you come up with the characters from the series? A: It honestly wasn’t that difficult. Aurora is basically me with none of the human restraints upon her. I took some of my favorite qualities that I thought were embodied by a specific animal and gave them to each of the mates.
Q: What is the most difficult thing about writing? A: Honestly, It’s staying focused, and ignoring those that decide to nick pick and rip a book apart instead of enjoying it for what it is..
Q: About writing reverse harem? A: That’s actually a funny answer It’s more like when you have intimate moments with more than one mate in a scene. Keeping track of where all the limbs and appendages are and making sure that nothing is misplaced.
Q: Where do you get your inspiration to write supernatural/shifter books? A: As i said earlier I absolutely love horror movies. I grew up watching some of the old favorite black and white movies all the way up to current day.
Q: Any recommendations for someone looking to get into writing? A: Definitely find a good editor and proofreader for your novel. Do not trust and editing program to handle your document the same as a human would. A program cannot and will not ever understand how an emotion needs to be portrayed.
Q: What is your favorite writing spot? A: Usually I’m sitting on my bed. or or I’m going for a long walk and using my dictation program.
Q: What is your favorite vacation spot? A: I’m not a big fan of being around large groups of people. So anywhere that I can isolate and just enjoy myself is perfect vacation spot for me.
Q: What is your favorite food? A: I love extremely rare steak. I love sushi and sashimi. I love all sorts of Japanese and Indian cuisine. And I also enjoy cooking traditional German or Italian dishes.
Q: What is coming next from you? A:There’s actually a lot on the table currently. Just finished up book one of Hybrid Royals. Working on book five of Aurora’s series Welcome Home Little Wolf. After that I am probably going to be working on Jayce’s daughters series and my Bear Claw Ranch series that will feature two of Dimitri’s daughters and Ellis. I also have a Valkyrie series slated for 2021. There’s also a reverse harem vampire novel that I have outlined. There’s also going to be a three book series with Klaus’s daughter that will be reverse harem. There’s several other things that are in the works in the background The hybrid royal series is going to be four books when it’s completed and then there’s another four book series that is on the back burner currently.
Those manipulative a-holes set out to ruin me after our hot night together, but they didn’t realize you can’t destroy something that’s already broken. And it only works if the victim cares.
Which I don’t.
Because I’ve been in hell for years, and nothing penetrates the steel walls I’ve erected.
Until The Sainthood decides I belong to them and cracks appear in my veneer. Their cruel games, harsh words, and rough touch awakens something inside me, and now, I’m in trouble.
They draw me deeper into their dangerous world, until I’m in the middle of all the violence and gang warfare, tangled up in all the secrets and lies, and there’s no turning back.
Because they own me.
And nothing has ever felt so right.
I’m exactly where I should be.
But with enemies on all sides, survival becomes a deadly game with no guarantees.
And, sometimes, saints become sinners.
Due to mature content, this book is recommended to readers aged eighteen and over. This is a full-length 95k-word dark romance #whychoose novel with enemies-to-lovers/bullying themes. Please read the note at the start of the book. Cannot be read as a standalone and ends with a cliffhanger. Book 1 of 3.
Resurrection: A Dark High School Romance (The Sainthood – Boys of Lowell High Book 1) by Siobhan Davis. This was a crazy bully romance! Right off the bat its a fast burn with a 5-way! Harlow gets the devastating news that her father has died and then walks right in on her boyfriend cheating on her! Way to start out a book Siobhan! Harlow is also out for vengeance. I love that she kicks-ass for a living and can fight for herself. No more meek MC’s for us! Diesel is her trainer and we definitely see some chemistry between the teacher and the student. Then, we come and find that Harlow must now live with these 4 sexy as sin Sainthood members, Saint, Galen, Caz, and Theo, who just happen to be the same guys she had a 5-way with! Her mom, Giana, is getting re-married to the president of the Sainthood and along with him he brings these 4 boys to live with and go to school with Harlow! The hurt just keeps on piling up. Harlow must now look at her tormentor from when she was kidnapped. She grew from that experience, but to look at him everyday and to keep a sin face, NOPE! This book has so much drama, angst, bullying, it really has it all for us.
Harlow wants to take her vengeance and she will by infiltrating the Sainthood and getting these guys under her thumb. She wants to take it down from the inside and make them pay. The Sainthood is like the Mafia. They have chapters and presidents and lots of people to get through to the top. Throughout the book, though it’s not easy, Saint is very possessive and even though they share girls, he doesn’t seem like he wants to, he wants Harlow for himself. Caz is the funny, sexy brute that you just want to see Harlow and him keep hooking up. They are the pranksters. Theo is the shy, nerdy guy who has a past history with Harlow. They loved each other, they were their everything, until he turned on her. Galen is the mystery guy. They seem to be getting along and have some chemistry brewing. Harlow doesn’t want her heart broken but no one ever does, and she goes and falls for these sexy guys. I would totally fall for them also, especially Theo, he seems like my type of guy. The cliffhanger isn’t so bad because you have the second book right away 🙂 but it is still a good one! Galen just surprises us and the WTF moment happens.
Two years ago, a split-second decision changed everything. I risked my life for a man I didn’t even know and nearly died for it.
I’ve tried to forget him. To forget that whole night.
But he hasn’t forgotten me. He’s been watching. Obsessing. Craving.
And when he crashes back into my life like a wrecking ball, accompanied by two dark shadows—men he calls his brothers—the life I’ve been trying to rebuild for myself shatters into a thousand sharp-edged pieces.
He believes our souls are bound by blood, and he’s come back to claim what’s his.
Two years ago, I saved Marcus Constantine’s life.
Now I wish I hadn’t.
This is the first book in the Ruthless Games series, a new adult reverse harem romance. It contains bully elements, sexual situations, violence, and dark subject matter. Please venture between these pages at your own discretion.
Sweet Obsession is part of a series and is NOT a standalone.
Well I always love Callie Rose and her amazinness, and this new book. Sweet Obsession, just proves that. This book is EVERYTHING! I love that our MC has a little bit of a disability that doesn’t hinder her at all. She owns it and everything that is thrown at her. There are so many twists that I just weren’t expecting but loved.
Ryland, Marcus, Theo & Ayla are some characters that you will def. need to get to know! And not everyone loves are sweet-kick-butt Ayla either. I like it when a main guy doesn’t like the MC at first and fights the whole way. This book holds a lot of secrets and a stalker mentality. But Ayla doesn’t let the nightclub incident hold her back. She learned from it and it made her a stronger person. Maybe a more standoffish person, but who doesn’t like a good MC who can literally kick your ass in a sparring match?
Ayla has had a troubled past being bounced around the system and we get bits and pieces of what happened with her adopted family but not the whole story. We know that she lives alone and in comes the bully queen who is jealous that she was adopted over her and it looks like she will make her life hell because of it. And OH DOES she ever! So much mystery and drama!
So hot! And the scenes! I give this a 5 out of 5 on my sizzle factor!!! So Hot! But the cliffhanger, of course…drama, drama, drama! BOOO! Can’t wait! Sorry for excessive !!!!….it’s just that good 😀
This week our Author Spolight is from J. Bree, the extremely talented Hannaford prep queen. J. Bree just finished up her first series with To the End: Hannaford Prep Year Four.

This is definitively an upcoming author that you will want to keep your eye on!
Onto the Questions! Thank you again J. Bree for answering our questions! We really appreciate it!
Q: What got you into witting? A: I am a voracious reader and daydreamer, there has never been a time in my life that I haven’t been tinkering with an idea.
Q: What is your favorite book/series of yours? A: This question is too hard to answer because I have HUNDREDS of favorite books lol.
Q: Why write high school bully romance stories vs others? A: I had the characters in my mind for a while and the ghost of an idea and then I read three books that helped me figure it all out: the Rich Boys of Burberry Prep series by CM Stunich, The Rebel of Raleigh High by Callie Hart, and Broken Wings by Tate James and Jaymin Eve.
Q: What is your favorite character from your books? (Or another book/series) A: My favorite characters change depending on who I’m writing but if I HAD to choose I would say either Lips or Nate. They are very interesting to play with, I love the ride or die, no prisoners, cutthroat ways they both have.

Hi I’m Serenity Rayne and I love to write paranormal stories. My first book out Hide Little Wolf is a dream come true. I’ve read a ton of books over the years , I’ve always felt they were missing something. So I was encouraged to write the book I’ve always wanted to read. In real life I’m a mom, wife and outdoors woman. I love supporting and being supportive of others. You’ll find in my books that the female characters are strong independent women that don’t lose their bite no matter what is thrown their way. I hope you enjoy reading it!
Ascend Little Wolf: The Aurora Marelup Series
My name is Aurora and I am the last of my bloodline. The Strigoi killed my family within moments of my birth. They entrusted my life to my Guardians Dimitri a Great Bear and Andre a Golden Eagle.
They sent us through a portal to the new world to hide and protect me. We’ve spent the last two hundred years on the move like gypsies. The time has come and I’ve obtained my full power. The hunt for my mates is on. Once I succeed, I will take back my mother’s throne and dance on the bones of the Strigoi.
**Trigger warnings: Decapitation. There is m/m & m/m/m scenes. There is shifted sex. (Wolf on mate) Blood and Gore. Why choose romance (multiple men faithful to one female). Cliffhanger. This is book one of five
My name is Aurora. I am the first of my kind. After I ascended, it became clear to my Guardian’s that I wasn’t your average Lycan. My father’s noble bloodline has gifted me with powers unheard of for a Lycan. Half Lycan.
Half dragon. I am a lethal hybrid of the two. With the help of my mates, I am hunting down the traitors to my kingdom, one by one. The Strigoi may be an ever present pain in my ass, but even they can’t compare to what I feel waiting for us.
I feel that something lurks in the background, a puppeteer pulling the strings of the usurpers. With only two mates left to gather, my harem is almost complete. With their added strength, I will finally be able to avenge my family and take back my Mother’s throne.
On my blood, I will triumph over my enemies… let my bloody coronation begin.
**Trigger Warning: Decapitation. There is m/m & m/m/m scenes. True mates, blood and gore. A Why choose romance with a Cliffhanger
My name is Aurora and this is my journey. I have traveled far, hunting down my enemies. What I’ve learned so far hurts, the betrayal runs bone deep. So many cogs in the machine, and so many traitors to pursue.
The ice dragon castle is a place of wonder and great danger. I settle two scores and receive a surprising arrival. Oberon, King of the High Elves takes an interest in my journey. He bestows a powerful and lethal gift upon me. Sometimes it pays to be a beast of legend.
During my time in the castle, I finally complete my harem and reach my full potential. With all five mates at my side and an army at my command, I am almost ready to return to my ancestral home. Along the way, we’ve discovered the identity of the puppeteer, and there’s a major score to be settled there.
The body count is rising and there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight. By my blood, I swear I will avenge my family and take back what is rightfully mine. This is the second coming of the Blood Queen.
Do you know what it’s like to be cursed? I do. The last ten years of my life I can only return to my human form for five days. All because of the Voodoo Witch Doctor Jacques. One of the idiots in my congress broke his daughters heart.
In turn, He dubbed all raven shifters evil, and cursed us. He gave us calavera’s and a choice, kill or die. I’m a survivor, and I plan on beating last years body count. There’s one unforeseen glitch in my plans, and her name is Mina.
** TRIGGER WARNING** BDSM elements, torture, prostitution. Graphic death scenes in unique ways, Stockholm syndrome elements. Mass murderer turned anti-hero
I am wolf; I am human; I am neither; I am both. I am werewolf.
And I have seven Alpha Males as my mates. All mine to kiss and hold and touch, seven handsome men for my bed. My boys represent the biggest packs in North America. But I am the Alpha Female and I rule them all.
One day, the packs might force me to choose. But my heart, it won’t allow it. Things could get…bloody if I have to fight for my boys. For now, three glittering dark courts threaten our existence with their glamorous cruelty: the vampires, the witches, and the fae.
Werewolves are missing from all the packs, and my boys and I, we have to find them. Or find out who’s killing them. Because I’m the mistress of my men, my packs, a girl known simply as White Wolf. I’ve promised to protect the men I love, the family and friends I cherish. And the White Wolf…always keeps her promises.
***PACK EBON RED is a 300+ page full-length reverse harem/menage, urban fantasy/paranormal romance novel for mature teens and adults 18+ with a happily ever after waiting at the end of the series. It features one strong woman and her seven hot men that will do whatever it takes to protect and support their alpha. This book contains: werewolves, magic, vampires, dark fae, witches, intrigue, steamy sex scenes, romance, paranormal politics, and true love. This is book one of seven.
If you haven’t dived into C.M. Stunich yet, Pack Ebon Red(The Seven Mates of Zara Wolf) might be a good place to start. This is currently book 1 of 5 (four are currently out), so you can binge read all you want! We got the shifters, kick-ass female, seven sexy men who all want Zara’s attention (well, most of them) drama, action, MAGIC, and oh so much more. Like Fae, I’m on a Fae binge and love reading about how authors portray them differently in their books.
Zara is the next Alpha of the North American Packs and is from pack Ebon Red. Her mother is the current Alpha and you don’t want to get on her bad side. She tends to wear her silver like a badge…on her naked skin…so everyone can see how strong she is because silver will make these shifters bleed. Zara must prove to her mother and grandmother that she can be strong enough to lead their packs, which neither thinks she can handle the stress and difficult decisions an Alpha must make.
This reverse harem has 7 shifters that Zara must choose to become her next mate. 7 guys! While she really only wants one (currently) she must uphold tradition and welcome in these 7 hunky men who will live with her for the next year in the packhouse. Right as these packs are showing up for the pairing ceremony (which BTW, is so hot, one of my favorite parts of the books when meeting the guys) Zara and her love interest Nic, from pack Ebon Red, share a moment that they fear will be their last together. While experiencing this sexy scene they discover a burst of magic, which has been long lost to the packs. This leads to Nic being able to be one of Zara’s choices of mates. Yay!
While reading this book you won’t get bored. I think the only thing I had a hard time was trying to figure out which guy was which. You have to remember 7 guys! That is a lot of hotness to figure out. So we have Nic, Anubis, Silas, Monty, Jax, Tidus, and Che. After the pairing ritual, these 8 must figure out who is taking all the shifters and what is happening to them. They must complete this before their time is up and in the end, Zara is expected to choose one singular mate. But why choose right? Ha, Zara ain’t gonna choose, she’s gonna make her own path! Like all the lovely bad-ass females we read about, Zara doesn’t take shit and owns her body and her men.
On this adventure, we have a normal best friend, who likes the bad boys, witches with some crazy cats and scary magic, and some Fae that just like to create trouble. This book will keep you entertained with all the action, drama, sexy scenes and mystery. CM Stunich does an amazing job at creating a landscape for you to hold in your mind and great character development without too many of the mysteries about what might happen next. I love it when the authors just get right in there! You know that CM writes some steamy scenes and you won’t be disappointed in this book. Che and Zara, on their pack run, yeah I thought that was hot 😉
