Run hard and fast.
A motto I never thought I would have to live by.
When he came to me to work out his problems, I did my best to stay professional–to help him instead of burning with desire for him.
The more frequent his visits became, the more I knew that it would only be a matter of time.
So when the opportunity finally presented itself, I took him.
A vulnerable young man that needed to be loved, cherished and cared for.
Far away from where anyone would see or judge us.
Is it right?
No, I know this is wrong and I know there will be dire consequences if we get caught.
But if he continues to play along, we can be together.
Besides, a little white lie never hurt anyone, and so far, it hasn’t hurt us either.

FREYA
I was raised to be a prize. Something to be traded for the right price.
I didn’t have a choice, but I guess it comes with the territory of being the daughter of a mafia king. I’ve always longed for more, though.
A life without chaos and blackmail. One where I don’t have to worry if my lover will be murdered at the hands of the enemy, and I can just fade into the background.
But when Kian drifts into the picture, I consider abandoning that dream.
He shouldn’t like me, and he’s never wanted a relationship before, but he makes me feel things I never have. He speaks to my heart in a way only a lover can.
For so long, I’ve fought for normal, but now Kian is fighting for me, and I’m not sure I can say no.
 
KIAN
She’s everything I never knew I wanted–empathetic, compassionate, and knows what she wants. The complete opposite of someone who has been brought up in a world of crime.
She isn’t hardened or heartless. She’s soft and delicate, but the life I live isn’t one she wants to be part of.
Although she doesn’t like it, she’s no stranger to combat. I’ve fought for the things I want my entire life, and she’ll be no exception.
I’ll make her see she can’t deny me or the chemistry we have. That we are worth fighting for.
Freya Doughty will be mine.
Does all that sound okay?

Since the day I stepped foot in the small town of Katoka Falls and met Holly Crawford, she’s walked around shining like a golden ray of light. Always a pep in her step and a smile on her face. So when I find her crying on the side of our friend’s house, alarming is an understatement. Especially when Holly has a tug on my heart that she doesn’t even know she holds. When a crime wave hits Katoka Falls and Holly ends up in the thick of it, I’ll do everything in my power to keep her safe. Even if that means giving up everything I’ve fought to keep hidden.
 
I thought my brother ditching our business agreement and suddenly taking off with his new girlfriend would be the worst thing that could happen. I was wrong because the comfy world I know fades quickly as danger ends up on my doorstep. Now, Jaxon Judge is vowing to protect me by keeping me close. The problem with that is he’s my biggest weakness, and for months, I’ve tried to ignore his entire existence. When we’re together, I only want what I can’t have. Him. But when I become target number one, I’ll need Jaxon more than ever.

There’s a hierarchy amongst the natives and I am the exclusive possession of Alexander ‘Diablo’ Hawthorne, a gorgeous man that is esteemed as the devil. His wishes are simple to understand, but obediently giving in to his demands goes against every ounce of human decency and morality I possess.

As we spiral down a path of depravity that leads to the darkest depths of hell, I must decide how I want this to end.

Life or death.
Do I become what he needs, or do I risk it all just to die by his hand?

Genre: RomCom, Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 10, 2022
Cover Design: Cruel Ink Editing & Design
Three simple rules.
All I had to do was follow three simple rules, and I’d complete graduate school.
Rule #1: Ace my tests.
Rule #2: Complete my assigned clinical hours.
Rule #3: Do not fall for the doctor at the aforementioned assigned clinical placement.
Well…two out of three ain’t bad, right?
Rule #3 would be so much easier to follow if Finn, that jerk of a doctor, wasn’t so handsome. The two of us mix about as well as oil and vinegar. If opposites attract, why does my flight response kick in whenever I’m within a two-foot radius of Finn?
After a failed engagement that ended in heartbreak, you’d think I’d be the one drowning in my own bitterness, but Finn is doing that enough for both of us.
I guess there’s a reason he’s aptly earned the nickname Dr. Dick.
Three simple rules.
All I had to do was follow three simple rules, and I’d never have to see Dr. Dick again.
There’s only one tiny problem…
I think he might be growing on me—the grumpy, pessimistic man I never saw coming.

Wait for me. Never let me go.
 
I fell in love with Jackson Moreno in hell, the only two survivors trapped in a catastrophic tunnel collapse. But when rescue comes, I discover he has secrets darker than I could have guessed.

I fell in love with Jackson Moreno six years later, on a bright summer afternoon, cleaning the lobby of a small-town bank. But he’s still running, and I’m struggling to keep my little family afloat.
I fell in love with Jackson Moreno in three feet of snow, surrounded by garbage and filth, after we lost everything. Because sometimes a tatted bad boy and a shy dad who loves knitting are destined to be together, no matter how many years and miles and memories pull us apart. No matter how many times we have to start over.
If we refuse to be broken, I believe someday we’ll find each other for the last time.

Title: Numbered Days
Author: Maritza Michelle
Genre: Dystopian Romance
Release Date: March 7, 2023
Cover Design: Pink In Ink Designs
In Ceniza, whoever has money, has time.
Kace Coronado was taught from a young age what his place in his world was to be. Bound by duty to uphold a society that has long favored the rich and privileged, he has begun training to take his rightful place in Synod, the governing committee that assigns all Ceniza citizens the rest of their lives. He had his entire life before him. But nothing ever worth having comes without a steep price.
That price comes in the form of Ahava Downing, the girl from the lowest segment of the city that he never saw coming. She doesn’t need anyone, and she makes sure he knows it. His polar opposite, she is a walking embodiment of the very thing his leadership is meant to control. But the moment she boarded his transport, his entire focus began to transfer. His sun rises and sets on her.
Priorities shift when everything they thought they knew about their world is uprooted, and truth begins to take form in its place.
What would you do…if you knew you had your whole life ahead of you…but the love of your life only had a year left to live?
What would you do…if the one you can’t help but love…also represented everything you’d been raised to hate?
The race against time begins. Will anyone truly get out alive?


I take a seat upon entering, in a room filled with black walls and large windows. There are many familiar faces around me, also waiting to find out their time, but everything is a blur.
My name is called, and I stand to go back, correcting my mindset so I will not falter. The way I have been trained to.
An elder gentleman sits me down, looks me in the eye, and tells me with certainty that I am one of the lucky ones.
Lucky.
I wonder what they say to those that aren’t.
I just smile and nod. Internally I’m screaming. This ceremony did nothing for me. I stand up, steady like a rock, ready to meet my Father behind the closed steel doors.
As I walk out, the roars of the crowd grow louder, my heart racing. Gold and purple banners are strung along every railway. Coronado believes purple to be sacred, as it meant royalty in the past, and they believe it to be the closest thing to that now.
Mussing up my hair anxiously, I smile, the way I’ve been trained, and wave at all of the admirers.
I see my Father from across the yard. His presence demands attention. Sleek black hair and taller than most. He is wide in frame, probably would have been a footballer if that was still a thing, but only something I see now on old recordings. His hand holds my Mother’s but his eyes hold mine. He stands always at attention, ready to take on the world in an instant if need be.
He has never faltered. I doubt he ever will.
As I reach them, he slaps me quickly on the back, refusing to ask a question he already knows the answer to.

When I turned my back on the most brutal gang of alpha a-holes this side of the bridge—my family—I also gave up my claim as their Alpha.
No one knows my secret. But a killer from my old life has returned, and Fate decides to bond me to the one man with the key to my past, even if he doesn’t realize it: the lone survivor of my family’s most unforgivable rampage.
 
Oh, and two other alphas, just in case I thought I could get out of this alive.
 
All I have to do is keep my head down and make sure my past stays buried until our bond fades—and takes the rut building between us with it. But the killer’s twisted game ensnares me, and the only way I can fight is if I admit who I am.
Luc, Theo, and Jace have no idea who they’re bonded to… but the rut is coming, and my alpha soul is breaking free.
 
For better or worse, they’re going to find out.
