There’s a lore about a Crypt King who rules over the forbidden cemetery and collect all the lingering souls. His three companions a step behind…
Isa DeCuir has been marked…
From the moment she was born, Isa has had a target on her back. After a horrible accident claimed the lives of her parents along with her best friend, Keres’, father, strange things began to happen—including her inability to control her spellcasting.
Mads Billiot has been waiting for this moment all his life…
He has honed his skills, chosen his partners wisely, and put into motion certain schemes to not only protect his future bride, but to also break the network of witches within the Grand Du Parish. However, there is a nasty secret buried with the dead that threatens everything he’s accomplished along with his future bride.
Ethan Guidry has walked the earth for over a millennium…
As a Grim, he has seen what can happen to lost souls or those who feed themselves to the Crypt King. There’s no way Ethan would allow Isa to become another of the King’s hapless victim. He’d do anything for the Witchling including becoming her familiar and sharing his life with her. However, there are strange happenings afoot, and his wishes might truly be nightmares.
All Hallows Eve approaches…
As the veil between the living and the dead thins, can Mads and Ethan protect Isa from the truth? Or will Isa become the next victim of the Crypt King?

The Crypt King peered at the space surrounding him and frowned. She was in class… boring. Where was the spice? The intrigue? She wrote in her notebook, taking notes. The letters were a jumbled mess. How she deciphered any of it was of no consequence.

“Should I fuck you here?” he murmured, running his tongue along the curve of her ear. “On your desk. So, the professor can watch.”

Isa glanced up, confusion filling her sweet, pouty features. “Who… How did you get here? Why are you here?”

He lifted his shoulder, sinking into the warmth of her gaze as her eyes traced his skeletal body. “I thought it was time for us to get to know each other. You have been thinking about me all these years.” He chuckled softly as he leaned into her. “Admit it. You’ve wondered a time or two what it would be like to fuck me.”

She gasped. The sweet, honeyed scent of her arousal spun around him in a decadent web he didn’t want to escape. “You’re a pervert.”

“Maybe I am.” He took her hand in his and placed her palm on his cock. A groan of pure satisfaction fell from his lips. “Even better than I imagined.”

“This is wrong. We shouldn’t be together like this.” Yet, despite her protest, she stroked him. Her hand moving up and down his length, squeezing and teasing his tip. “I have class. Someone could see us.”

“Let them watch. I want them all to know only my cock can make you scream.” In a flash, their positions changed. He sat on the wooden chair she’d been occupying. The retractable side desk had been pushed back into its hiding spot. Isa was naked in his arms, her wet pussy dripping on the head of his knobby cock. She gasped, staring back at him with her mouth wide. Her crystal-topaz eyes were filled with surprise and arousal. Her tongue swiped across her bottom lip, while her inviting expression encouraged him to take what he wanted.

“Oh…” She shivered. “Don’t stop.”

“Naughty, naughty girl.” He groaned, lowering her slowly onto his dick. She fluttered around him, coating him in her juices. “Fuck… Is this what gets you off, my Queen? Have you dreamt of this before?”

She scored her fingernails over his skull, whimpering. “How is this possible?”

“Anything is possible.” He rocked her over his cock, reveling in the way she gripped his dick. “Show your professor your beautiful pink pussy stuffed with your King’s cock.” She splayed her legs over his lap while holding her labia open. The wet squelch of her arousal turned him on more. “Do you squirt, my Queen? Can you ejaculate?”

“I’ve never.” She groaned. Her head fell back on his shoulder, and her eyes were closed. Her lips were parted in a pant. The pretty flush on her skin crept toward her breasts and his mouth watered. He took both of her tits into his palms and squeezed. His reward was the twitch and suck of her cunt and the cry that fell from her lips.

“Look at him, Isa. Look at what you’re doing to him.” The Crypt King changed who was in the classroom with them, allowing Mads a space within his conscious stream. “Look at Mads stroking his cock. See the way his tip is covered in precum? He’s leaking for you. He wants his cock buried deep inside of you like I am. Should we invite him to join us? To notch his dick inside your pussy with mine?”

All Hallows Eve approaches…
As the veil between the living and the dead thins, can Mads and Ethan protect Isa from the truth? Or will Isa become the next victim of the Crypt King?

His foot falls were silent, determined not to disturb the grieving girl as he drew near. This beautifully damnable woman who’d haunted his dreams for more years than he recklessly should’ve allowed. She consumed him. Enthralled him. It was as if she drew what was left of his brittle soul from his worthless body, and he willingly gave over to her. With her alabaster skin and long, dark-hickory hair, falling in loose waves around her full, pouting features. Or her entrancing amber eyes that ensnared his attention. He didn’t know if he should devour her or fuck her. Neither were mutually exclusive. Both would be fun. 

He hated her.

Loved her.

Feared her.

She could destroy the worst parts of him. He’d willingly lay himself bare and allow her to pick over his useless bones as carrion would a desolate carcass, left to decompose and become fetid in the humid heat of a Louisiana Summer day. 

Mads stood there, at the top of the knoll, cast in long looming shadows from the setting sun and obelisks built in tribute to the dead, watching as Isa knelt in front of her parents’ vault to place white lilies on their side-by-side graves. He couldn’t help but sneer. Neither of her parents was perfect. Both had secrets, and their secrets were why Isa and her brother Ronan were kept isolated from the rest of the community. Yes, some—the ass kissers as he liked to call them—would say it was because of her being Keres’ protector, but Mads knew the real reason.

What he didn’t know was how much of the truth about that fateful night had made its way back to the daughter of Meredith and Henry DeCuir. Mads had been privy to all of it. From the lies to the scandal to the reason Lydia called Henry to her house. He even knew how the car went off the road and Lydia survived. He wondered absently, as he observed his prey, what Isa’s reaction would be to the news? There’d been no doubt in his mind, she had all the pieces of the grand puzzle hidden in the official documents and investigation of the tragic accident—murder—the only thing he couldn’t fathom was why she never dug into the case.

A part of him was giddy at the idea of her diving into the meat of her parents’ relationship with the Belfleurs. To watch her sully her innocence with their salacious scenes and the hedonistic tendencies, her parents had partaken of. The group orgies with the coven they’d called family—until they weren’t. The nights he’d spied them—the Belfleurs and the DeCuirs—in that very cemetery where she sat, communing with the moon goddess. He licked his lips. Those nights were fun. Would it disgust her to know he’d jerked off while watching them, climaxing hard as the magic sang through the tall, weed strewn grass and church rubble? Would it excite her? Just the memory of such naughty, debauched things made his cock twitch in remembrance of those nights long ago.

The scent of brimstone and sulfur broke the trance Mads had been held within, and his gaze sharpened. There was that mangy mutt, again. Pinpricks of rage spread across Mads’ body, and his hands curled into fists. He’d been nice to Ethan. Gave him a small desolate spot among the headstones and megalithic monuments to call home, yet the bastard couldn’t stay away from what—who—belonged to Mads. He swore he’d make the rabid Church Grim pay for his transgressions, uncaring of how it would appear to his bride-to-be.

Rabid dogs needed to learn to heel. Ethan was no exception to the rule.

“Should we deal with him?” As if sensing the sour turn of Mads emotions, Rafe apparated beside him, rubbing his hands together while licking his lips. 

Rafe, Brody, and Jude were three of the best minions who’d ever had the pleasure of joining him. When he’d been anointed with his particular abilities, he’d claimed three souls and breathed life back into their worthless bodies. Their contracts were indefinite. Their loyalty bought and paid for. Yet, in all the years they’d been together, a true, unbreakable friendship had solidified between them. Something he never thought possible.

Mads turned to his best friend and shook his head. “Isa’s remembering her parents today. Give them space.”

Rafe cocked a pierced brow. His ashen-colored eyes swirled with disappointment. “He’s too close to her. I don’t understand why you haven’t castrated him yet.” The snarled gnash of his words matched the jealousy slithering through Mads’ veins. Truth was, he’d probably asked himself that question a million times, yet he didn’t have the answer either.

“We have all the time in the world,” Mads muttered. “Perhaps I’d like to play with my food before I gorge myself.”

Beautifully dark. Hauntingly horrific. An especially twisted tale that will evoke so many emotions.” ~ The Lushy Reader

“… a fast paced, gripping, intense romance that ensnared my attention immediately and kept me riveted until the very end.” ~ Anna’s Bookshelf

ADDY
I thought the suffocating loneliness of the last two years was bad, but then I was sent to Lakeridge Psychiatric Facility.
On the outside it’s disguised as helpful brochures and friendly doctors who have vowed to help, but the real truth is just below the surface, lurking in the shadows, and haunting my dreams.
At night he comes–taunting and abusing me. Bending me to his will, and making sure no one believes me.
That is until Dylan.
I can touch him and see him, but if my mind is capable of creating such horrors like my nightmares, can I trust that he’s real?
DYLAN
I’m no stranger to breaking rules and living on the edge. I guess it kind of comes with the territory of being a rockstar. But when I’m forced to attend Lakridge to serve my time and get sober, I’m met with the one thing I know I can’t have.
Addy.
I know we don’t have a chance, not unless I want to get kicked out of here, made to finish my sentence in a proper prison. Still, something about her calls to me.
There is more to the marks on her pale skin than the doctors say, and her nightmares seem to be a little too real.
Digging deeper into the madness, I’m left to question, can nightmares really leave scars? Or am I becoming mad too?

Title: Love to Hate You
Author: Whitley Cox
Genre: enemies to lovers, marriage of convenience, best friend’s brother, road trip, forced proximity, romantic comedy, high heat, erotic romance
Release Date: March 12, 2022
“An irresistible blend of emotion, angst, drama, heat, heart and humor was super enjoyable and made this book a true delight to read.”
– Gladys (Goodreads Review)
“Their story is intense and poignant at times but it also has a lighter side to it as well. The authors words draw you into a storyline that holds hard and fast to your heart. Love to Hate You is an exceptional love story.”
– Kylee (Goodreads Review)
She needs arm candy, he needs her insurance, but first, they need to drive across the country without killing each other.
 
Eli
Since the first day of kindergarten, I have hated Alexandra Hartford.
And twenty-something years later that hasn’t changed.
But she has.
She’s still a tomboy with a chip on her shoulder, but now she’s a hot tomboy with a chip on her tattooed shoulder who can fight like a badass.
I’d still rather have a bath with fire ants than spend ten days in a car with her, but she has something I need.
Once the deal is done, we can go our separate ways.
That is … if I want to.
Alex
Eli Evans is my nemesis.
He blames me for his sister’s death, our parents’ divorces, and probably global warming, too.
Why on Earth would I help him?
Because he’s as easy on the eyes as he is the bane of my existence and I need a hot date to a wedding in San Diego.
Can we drive across the country without me leaving him at a truck stop somewhere? I doubt it.
But, I’m willing to try.
Ten days in a car, a wedding, and a marriage of convenience, then I’m done with him forever.
Right?

The sound of the curtain in her changing room being pulled open echoed into my changing room, so I made sure my dick wasn’t visible, then pulled back my own curtain. 

Jamie was zipping up Alexandra’s dress—the royal blue bandage strapless one—but she whipped around to face me when Jamie was finished. 

Her eyes widened, pupils dilated, nostrils flared. It was a primal reaction that I would have to be an idiot to miss. 

I had a primal reaction of my own—in my pants. 

“Holy fuck,” I breathed. 

She glanced away, but the smile that lifted one side of her mouth was dead sexy. 

“You’re getting that one,” I said. 

She smoothed her hands down the sides, turned on one foot, and glanced at herself in the mirror. “Yeah, I like it, too.”

“You can’t wear those two together, though,” Jamie said. “The blues are too close in color, but not close enough. If you know what I mean?”

Alexandra and I nodded. 

“He should just wear a dress shirt and maybe dark gray pants when you wear that dress.”

“I have dark gray pants in the room,” I said, hooking a thumb toward my changing room and a stack of pants on the bench.

I stepped out and away from my room to get a better look at myself in the mirror outside the changing rooms. “What do you think?”

“I think it’s a perfect fit,” Jamie said. “Doesn’t even look like you’ll need tailoring.”

Alexandra nodded. “Looks good.” I caught her checking out my ass and grinned, but when she saw me see her, her eyes whipped up to the ceiling as if a flock of geese had just flown overhead. 

“You guys got any brown wingtips?” I asked, focusing my gaze on Jamie. 

He nodded. “Sure do. Size?”

I glanced back at Alexandra and smiled as I said, “Thirteen.” 

I did not miss the flare of her eyes or the way they drifted down to the front of my pants. 

“Eyes up here, lady,” I said, catching her gaze back in the mirror. 

Startled, she ditched the surprised look and went with a glare before returning to her changing room and dramatically pulling the curtain closed again. 

“What is the dynamic of your relationship?” Jamie asked, glancing back and forth between me and the closed changing room curtain. 

“She’s my fiancée,” I said chipperly. “But she’d rather not be.”

A Canadian West Coast baby born and raised, Whitley is married to her high school sweetheart, and together they have two beautiful daughters and a fluffy dog. She spends her days making food that gets thrown on the floor, vacuuming Cheerios out from under the couch and making sure that the dog food doesn’t end up in the air conditioner. But when nap time comes, and it’s not quite wine o’clock, Whitley sits down, avoids the pile of laundry on the couch, and writes.
 
A lover of all things decadent; wine, cheese, chocolate and spicy erotic romance, Whitley brings the humorous side of sex, the ridiculous side of relationships and the suspense of everyday life into her stories. With single dads, firefighters, Navy SEALs, mommy wars, body issues, threesomes, bondage and role-playing, Whitley’s books have all the funny and fabulously filthy words you could hope for.

BLURB:

I was Persephone claimed by Hades for thirty days.

I slammed my car right into Ricardo Ruiz, the God of the Underworld.

He was a murderer.

Criminal.

I had no insurance.

No money.

And no way to pay for the repairs on his Aston Martin. I begged for a way to fix it off-record because I couldn’t afford another mark against me.

He told me hitting his car came at a price.

And the price was me.

Sweet Temptation is a stand-alone Dark Mafia Enemies to Lovers Romance, complete with HEA and no cliffhangers.

Please note: It is a dark mafia romance that contains mature content, graphic violence and may contain triggers.
