Author: Erin Trejo
Genre: Dark Romance, Romantic Suspense
Release Date: April 29, 2022
 
 
One night was all it should have been. A night of torment for her. Payback for how she treated us in high school.
What I didn’t count on was she would like it. As if I switch is flicked inside her, she begins to thrive on fear.
So I dare her to get to know me, and to my surprise, she accepts. However, secrets threaten to destroy everything. Once she discovers what I’m hiding, she will leave me for good.
I won’t let that happen, but can I stop her?
 

 
 
 
The Strays – Sleeping With Sirens
Bully – Shinedown
Addicted – Saving Abel
 
 
When she’s close to the bathroom, I glance around to see if anyone is watching before grabbing her around the waist and pulling her into the first VIP room I can find. She screams, but the loud thumping of the bass covers any noise she makes.

I pull her further into the pitch-black room and force her body against the wall. I can smell her perfume. So fucking intoxicating.

“Please let me go,” she begs as I keep her pinned in place. I like the fear in her voice. I like that’s she scared right now.

I don’t say anything as I push her chest harder against the wall. Her head is turned to the side, and I can feel her tears as I bring my face down. I smile, knowing I made her cry. I want to make Ray cry. I want her to feel what we felt all those years.

“I love it when you cry,” I whisper. I’m certain she wouldn’t remember my voice, and if she did, I’m sure Ray has forgotten by now.

“What do you want?” she asks, her voice hitching when she does.

“To see you cry,” I tell her.

“Please, let me go,” she begs. I move closer, pressing my body against hers harder now. There’s no letting her go now.

Blurb:

The Kings are powerful.

They’re ruthless.

And they own me.

When my mother dies of an overdose, I’m forced to live with an aunt that hates me. Her desire to stay close to the elite pushes me right into the domain of the Kings. Kieran, Heston, and Xavier.

These guys don’t just rule the high school, everyone seems to bow down to them. No body crosses them and lives to talk about it, or so I’ve heard. Their families are the richest in this city. In fact, they are so powerful that even the city authorities bend to their will.

They don’t trust me because of where I come from. My uncle was one of the founding families, along with their fathers, and he betrayed them. Now they believe that I am the enemy.

There’s an old saying, the truth will find you out. How true thatstatement is. My family’s secrets are revealed, and I discover that my entire life has been full of lies and deceit. Those secrets also have the power to take everything from me. But will this new revelation be enough to earn their trust, or will it destroy everything I hold dear?

Title: Alexius
Series: Dark Sovereign Book 1
Author: Bella J.
Genre: Dark Romance/Mafia Romance
Release Date: May 10, 2022
Cover Design: Deranged Doctor Design
Cover Model: Isaac Moreno
Photographer: Rafa G Catala

I’ve never met him. Never even seen him.
But I’ve heard the whispers. The rumors. The stories about him being as cruel as his father. Maybe even worse.
They say his presence wraps around your throat whenever he enters a room. And that’s exactly what I feel the moment he walks into the diner where I work, and I hear people breathe out his name.
Alexius Del Rossa.
They call him the crown prince of the Dark Sovereign—a society of men who own everything but the weather in this town.
Men say he has ice in his veins, and women talk about the corrupted heart in his chest. He’s the kind of man you pray never to cross paths with. The kind of man a girl like me has no chance of surviving.
But while his eyes trap mine, and his magnetism touches my skin, I’m unable to move when he forces me into a corner and hands me an envelope.
It’s an offer.
One I can’t refuse.
See, I have nothing. No family. No friends. No home.
I can disappear and no one will know.
And that is exactly why he chose me.

Yes, I lead a séance I had no business leading in the first place. No, I’m not a channeler of spirit, but let me explain. I was only trying to help a mother find her missing daughter, and then a cocky half-incubus had the nerve to possess me! You’d think a clairvoyant kitchen witch would have seen this coming.

No need to panic. I can figure out a way to exorcise Damion Blackmon, assuming I can withstand his seduction in the meantime. Oh, and he’s agreed to help me find out who killed my best friend. Deals with devils. I’m not sure if it’s my soul or my heart that’s at risk.

But don’t worry, my grandma was a voyeur in a past life and she’ll catch you up to speed. In extremely graphic detail. A word of warning—do not let my aunt talk you into a juice cleanse. Nothing magic about that, I promise.

**Author’s Note: Possession is book 1 of the Memphis Magic series. If you like witches and demons; forced proximity with a twist; quirky characters; laugh out loud moments; mystery; smoking hot slow burn; steam; grumpy cat; and even grumpier police detective, then this series is for you. And you don’t even have to sell your soul to read it.

About Andrea Hagan:

I’ve been a writer my whole life, I just didn’t know it. As a kid I would watch soaps with my mom and then lie awake at night and come up with dialogue in my head for the characters. I’d get the look in church when I was writing down what I’m sure was extremely angst filled poetry and song lyrics in the blank corners of the Sunday bulletin. So I did what any good writer would do, and that’s ignore my calling and get an accounting degree, followed by a law degree. I would like to state for the record that I am a reformed lawyer, emphasis on reformed.

I write sweet and spicy romance with a side of magic. Fantasy, witchcraft, demonology and angelology, mysticism and the occult, if it goes bump in the night, add a little romance and a HEA and I’m your girl!

Re-Release Date: April 7, 2022
Cover Design: Pretty In Ink Creations

What would you be willing to sacrifice for the one you love?

I was born a princess of the Celtic Reapers MC, but I’m definitely not royalty. I’m abused, tortured, and broken, desperate to escape.

I have two choices. I can stay with my childhood sweetheart, Jamieson aka Whiskey, who abandoned our plans for freedom when he patched into the MC. Or, I could win my freedom and live my dream life with loveable, sexy, tech geek Kellan.

But when I fall pregnant, my whole life changes and I’m forced to make painful decisions.

This is not your typical love story. It’s messy, it’s real, and it’s heartbreaking. This is the story of how you make an impossible choice. I’m Shayla Callahan, and this is my story.

Author Note – this is a dark mafia romance that features themes which may be triggering for some people. If you would like more details please contact: emmalunaauthor@gmail.com
