— Everett —

I loved her when she was just a splattering of freckles and big brown eyes.

When she brought an extra sugar cookie just for me in the first grade.

When our class goldfish died and she held me in front of everyone until I stopped crying.

I loved her even more when she had another man’s baby.

But I hate her for what she did, a chess move in a game of unforgivable sin. I hate myself even more for what I’m going to do to her. I wanted her gone, but I was the one who left. Now, I’ve returned, and I have no intention of leaving again.

This is my campus, and it’s time to pay for your sins, little mouse, because I am a vicious king.


— Molly —

I loved him the first day I met him on the playground, when he was all gangly elbows and knees.

When we buried our toes in the sandbox and pretended we didn’t have legs.

On our first day of middle school when he smiled at me across the quad.

He was my white knight, my protector, the one who always made sure I was okay.

But that boy’s dead and gone, and I killed him.

I can’t undo what happened.

I never meant to hurt him. I never meant to hurt anyone.

I was the nudge that toppled the dominos.

Hold my hand, E, and let’s find our way out of the shadows. Before we are both lost to the dark.

This is a standalone novel but part of the larger Wicked Empire universe, which follows characters introduced in my Voclain Academy series after they leave high school and enter adulthood.

Note from the author: Vicious Love is a dark enemies-to-lovers, college romance. It features mature themes including an incendiary heat level, bullying, teenage pregnancy, suicide, and, like my other novels, struggles with mental illness.

About the author:

Jordan Grant is a lost soul, who changed majors three times in college before deciding on English. Because she has about as much patience as her beautiful, wonderful (did she mention ah-mazing!) younglings, she graduated a year early and then went to law school because, well…

She mentioned she’s a lost soul, right?

A special place in her heart is devoted to edgy alpha males and bad boys with naughty mouths. She loves to get lost in the blur between love and hate and is especially fond of prince charmings with dents in their crowns and strife in their souls.

She is an avid fan of all things sweet including red wine and cupcakes (red velvet, please!). When she’s not daydreaming about the characters in her head, she enjoys (attempting to) garden, petting furry animals, and wrangling her family into day-trip adventures.

I had an opportunity to send a few questions the way of Pebbles Lacasse and hope you enjoy getting to know her as I did.


How long have you been a published author?

My first book released under a different penname in 2001. It was a fantasy series for teens and older. Also, under that penname, I wrote a murder mystery for adults. While I was working on these books, I found myself writing sexy scenes not suited for that age group. After a while, those genres bored me, and I gave up on my creative edge for a few years.

 In 2017, my creativeness urged me to write an erotic romance novel. Well, it tickled me just right, so that genre is where I choose to stay.

Do you write in other sub-genres other than Erotic/BDSM?

BDSM and romance hold my interest. My novels always contain a plot where romance builds, often between unlikely couples. Suspense, mystery, second-chances, for example, keep the story flowing and hold the reader’s attention.

What is your favourite genre to read?

Many authors say they don’t enjoy reading the genre they write, but I love it. For me, it’s more research than for enjoyment, although I often fall victim to the plot and cry when the characters suffer. My goal when reading is to see if the stories resemble mine. I’d rather write novels different from others. I’ll confess that I love reading the spicy sex scenes.

 Do you prefer ebook, paperback, or audio?

Ebook is the route I often go, only for the convenience of it. When I’m cleaning or making promotional pics or book covers, with my earbuds in, I let my phone read to me. It sounds a bit computer’ish, but it works for me. Paperbacks are preferred. The only problem in where to store them afterward. They have to go at some point, and it breaks my heart to see them leave. Audiobooks aren’t my preference. I’m sure they would sound much better than my phone’s attempt at storytelling, but I haven’t quite hopped on that wagon just yet.

What is your favourite hobby?

The hobby that relaxes me the most is watching movies while I assemble jigsaw puzzles on my computer. There are thousands of completed puzzles on the app I use. Other than that, it’s the usual; family, animals, and friends.

Traditional or Indie publishing?

A small publishing company picked up my first five erotic books. The books had a great storyline, but they needed polishing, and I knew it. Since they weren’t pushing the books toward sales, or promoting as much as they were needing, I reclaimed them. Meanwhile, I continued to write, professionally edit, and self-publish them. They did better than the others ever did income wise.

 The five books I reclaimed have since been refined, edited, and will be self-published. The My JoeSmith two-book series was massive, so I broke it down into four books. It’s a much better story now. The other three reclaimed books where polished and will be re-released soon.

Favourite author?

Oh, boy! That’s an impossible question to answer because there are so many amazing authors I’ve read. Names usually elude me, as my memory tests my patience more than I care to admit. Some that come to mind would be LaSasha Flame, AW Clark, Scarlett St. Clair, Katina J. Rose, Lisabet Sarai… I just drew a blank and can’t think of any others.

Favourite movie?

My favourite movie changes with my mood. I love What Dreams May Come, The Proposal, Deadpool, and so many more. My favourite television show is Gilmore Girls. I’ve watched it on Netflix from beginning to end at least four times. I enjoy having  it on in the background when I’m flying around on my social media. They crack me up!

Favourite book?

Just like with movies, my favourite book changes with my mood. The book I just finished is called Twigs in the Sand and it’s written by AW Clark. That man can write a story! From the first few chapters until the end, the words held me hostage and left me with a feel-good vibe. It’s sad, and yet happy at the same time. Before that I read Katina J. Rose’s Managing Ryan; an exceptional story as well.

Advice you would give someone sitting on the fence, debating whether to write the story in their head?

If someone is considering writing a story but is afraid to, for whatever reason, my advice would be to just do it. Find a quiet space, open your laptop, and begin. Trust me, the first copy will be crap. Every author will tell you their initial copy of every book they’ve written was not great. But get it out of your head anyway. When you’re finished with it, put it aside for a week while you celebrate that you just wrote a book! When you go back through it, polish it and make it a gem before you hand it to a professional editor. Your words will be so much better when edited by a qualified professional. Don’t just pop it on Amazon unedited and hope for the best. I did that and regret it to this day. How many readers did I lose because they think I still don’t edit my books?

What are you working on at the moment?

 At the moment, I spend my days prepping for releases, making promos, arranging ARCs, and formatting because the My JoeSmith series is releasing with a quick release; one book per month until the fourth is live on December 1, 2022. When I tire of all that and need to escape, there’s a story about a mysterious man who rescues a woman and they fall in love despite being so total opposites.

What do you have coming in the near future?

Soon, after the My JoeSmith series has fully released, Goldilocks and The Bear Brothers, book four will release early 2023. It’s almost ready to go, aside from editing. That’s going to be a hot new release!




Book One in the MY JOESMITH series

(FREE on KU)


My heart belongs to the whispers from my unseen Master, but the heat of his breath burns down to my soul.

Despite my good-girl, career driven façade, I live a secret life as JoeSmith’s submissive. I obey his rules and allow him to test my limits with bondage and pain because I choose to.

But the mystery of his identity plagues me.

If he’d let me see his face, he’d own my heart along with my body.

For now, I crave Master’s sadistic nature, but his loving kisses, gentle touches, and my belief there could be more keep me coming back.

I’ve become closer to my fun-loving friend, Samantha, after introducing her to JoeSmith.

Now she craves him, too.

But when my millionaire boss threatens to win my heart, I must decide between the love I’m promised and the lust I desire. Both men offer me something I need, but neither can give me everything.

If I choose one man, I will lose the other.

Is Tristan’s heart pure or is his charm laced with the broken trust of costly secrets?

A case of opposites attract, or fatal attraction?

He’s ten years her junior, a bad boy bodybuilder, too wild to be tamed. He knows she deserves more than the likes of him. Nonetheless, she is the object of his fascination.

She’s a divorced mother craving seduction by her brawny neighbour. She’s lonely but has too much baggage to consider acting on her infatuation. He’s worthy of an uninhibited, younger woman with a supreme body and a fierce sexual drive, none of which describes her.

One steamy summer afternoon has them unable to deny their needs. While Coach enlightens her about his savage sexual nature, Rayna teaches him that connecting on a deeper level can be more rewarding than anything he’s experienced.

But not everyone is thrilled these opposites connected. As Rayna and Coach struggle to overcome the ghosts of their pasts together, toxic exes and psychopathic admirers refuse to be pushed aside, ruthlessly taking their revenge with a pound of flesh.

Can the two survive what they’ll be forced to endure, or will their attraction end in disaster?

Teaser chapters of this book


Pebbles has finished the NaNoWriMo 50,000 words in 30 days challenge four years in a row, and can’t wait to begin again this November! “It’s fun because I can challenge myself toward a goal that seems impossible to achieve.”

For the first time, on September 24, 2022, one of Pebbles’ solo books came in as a #1 Hot New Release on Amazon! My JoeSmith: Anonymity, book one was a #2 bestseller in the erotic mystery genre. It also came in the top 10 bestsellers in the BDSM Erotica and Suspense Erotica genres. She’s so proud of all the work that went into that novel, and the entire book series coming before the end of the 2022.


Pebbles is a contemporary steamy romance and erotica author. She leans toward writing bad boys desiring women who didn’t know they have a kinky side. However, she’s also known for her women with a dominant nature and a secret yearning to be loved. Her books and short stories often take her readers into the BDSM lifestyle while revolving around real-life issues, and there’s always a happy ending. The captivating stories of romance, love, and tender moments keep her readers coming back for more.

As someone living with Porphyria, Pebbles stays indoors to avoid UV light, which gives her plenty of time to write. That’s not to say she doesn’t love “glamping,” fishing, kayaking, and swimming; she simply does it with protective clothing. Where there’s a will, there’s a way!

Pebbles is very family oriented. She and her husband raised their children in southern Ontario, where she was born and remains to this day. A 150 lbs Mastiff takes up ample room in their home and in their hearts. His best friends are the two rescue cats that think the world revolves around them – cats are like that. The chickens couldn’t care less about the dog until he chases them when they wander too close to his outdoor toys.

Title: Flirting With the Enemy
Series: Harbor Highlands Series
Author: Gia Stevens
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: November 27, 2022
Cover Design: HEA Studios 
All is fair in love and promotions…
Until you flirt with the enemy.
Seth Taylor is a thorn in my side. I can’t stand his cocky smirk, know it all demeanor, but most of all, I can’t stand those ridiculous bow ties he wears.
But the number one reason I hate him…
He’s applying for my promotion.
Well, it’s not mine, yet, but he’s certainly ruined my shoo-in chance.
When we’re told interviews will be held during a conference in Colorado, I pray our hotel rooms are on different floors.
Of course, things never go according to plan.
A failed connecting flight, a road trip, and a blizzard force us to seek refuge at an isolated roadside motel in the mountains. When my only option is to share a room with Seth, I’m expecting the bow tie wearing, clean cut, black rim glasses Seth. Not this guy standing in front of me wearing only gray sweatpants that hang dangerously low on his hips and a cocky grin.
Maybe it’s the high altitude or perhaps it’s Seth who’s causing this lightheadedness.
Because when a game of twenty questions turns naughty, it doesn’t take long for the burning rage to turn into fiery passion.
All I know, the longer we stay here lines blur and feelings become real.

Gia Stevens resides in the up north of Minnesota. She lives for the warm, sunny days of summer and dreads the bitter cold of winter. A romantic comedy junkie at heart, she knew she wanted her own stories to encompass those same feelings.

When she’s not busy writing your next book boyfriend, Gia can be found playing in her vegetable garden, watching reruns of The OC and Gossip Girl, or curled up with a good book.

Author: S.L. Sterling
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Thunderstruck Cover Design
Returning home after my military career came to an end, my best friend Chris needed my help. His little sister, Becca, was in trouble, and I was the only one he could trust.
But maybe he shouldn’t have because he doesn’t know the truth. During my last deployment, Becca had secretly written me letters that made me believe we shared something. Something powerful. We had a connection. But maybe not strong enough because when I returned to Merlot, she was seeing someone else and I was thankful I didn’t need to violate the bro code.
Chris asked me to protect her in his absence. To handle the guy that was stalking her. The same guy she’d been dating. I did what I had to do to keep her safe and didn’t mean to fall in love in the process.
Screw the bro code. If everything worked out, she’d be with me when all was said and done, and she would never be scared again.

I loved Kendall. We’d always been friends, but the crush on her came and went. That was why I’d never acted on it. I knew that if I made my move too soon, I’d lose her. Kendall was the forever kind of girl.

Most of the time, I thought we were actually perfect together. That was usually following a breakup. And I had a lot of breakups. I tried to ensure that I had a steady stream of dates so that I wouldn’t do something stupid with Kendall. Naturally, none of those relationships ever worked out.

I should have figured it out sooner, that Kendall was the one for me. Then fate handed me the perfect opportunity. The Bear Creek Music Festival was just around the corner. Her parents were holding their annual party weekend. She needed a date. I didn’t even need to ask because she kind of volunteered me.

I wanted her to see me with her family, fitting in. I wanted her to imagine the life we could have together. This wasn’t about a friend doing a friend a favor over the course of a weekend. This was about showing her I wanted a lifetime together. For her, I’d take a chance, even if it meant risking our friendship forever.

S.L. Sterling was born and raised in southern Ontario. She now lives in Northern Ontario Canada and is married to her best friend and soul mate and their two dogs. 
An avid reader all her life, S.L. Sterling dreamt of becoming an author. She decided to give writing a try after one of her favorite authors launched a course on how to write your novel. This course gave her the push she needed to put pen to paper and her debut novel “It Was Always You” was born. 
When S.L. Sterling isn’t writing or plotting her next novel she can be found curled up with a cup of coffee, blanket and the newest romance novel from one of her favorite authors on her e-reader. Her favorite authors include Kendall Ryan, Vi Keeland, Penelope Ward, Lauren Blakely, Alessandra Torre and Willow Winters. 
In her spare time, she enjoys camping, hiking, sunny destinations, spending quality time with family and friends and of course reading.

They say when one door closes, another opens. And in my case, that door leads right to Hell—literally. Though it’s not necessarily a bad thing, as crazy as it may sound since this specific hell dimension is ruled by Osiris, God of the Underworld.
And he just might be the only one who can help me save the world from the total devastation the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse will bring. But he’s also the only one standing between me and Lucas, who sacrificed everything so I could live. I’ll do whatever it takes to save him, and if anyone gets in my way, blood will spill.
In an attempt to keep the world from completely imploding, Osiris wants to make a deal: he’ll help free my husband in exchange for me staying in the Underworld with him, ruling by his side. It’s not a deal I’d agree to, until I realize how close the archangels are to finding out who I really am.
If there’s one thing I know about Hell, it’s that it makes one hell of a hiding place…
