Author: Natasha Knight
Genre: Dark Mafia Romance

Release Date: July 17, 2018
Blurb
I’m the right-hand man of the mafia king.
She’s a girl with a past she’s desperate to hide.
 
But I need something from her.
And I know she won’t help me. Not willingly.
She’ll need some persuading.
 
Lucky for her, I can do that.
 
Something about this girl makes me curious, though, and it’s more than the scars that line her back. She’s on the edge of something.  Something bad. She’s like a perfect, beautiful doll coming apart at the seams. And the last string is about to snap.
 
She thinks I’ll hurt her. Break her.  But thing is, she’s already broken. And she and I, we’re two peas in a pod. She’s my match, the perfect opponent. She’ll fight me to the finish, but I’ll win. I always do.
 
Because I’m a man used to getting what I want. And what I want is her. 
 
Author’s Note: Giovanni is a STANDALONE dark mafia romance set in the Benedetti Brothers Mafia World. It’s an emotionally gripping enemies-to-lovers romance with a hard-earned HEA.

Master’s of the Castle: Witness Protection Program

Master’s of the Castle: Witness Protection Program

Where will you be when the bomb goes off?

Ten of your favorite BDSM authors. Eight brand new stories. One really, really bad man.

When Master Marshall gets an emergency phone call, he can’t believe his ears. His cousin, Grace, has become the only surviving witness to a terrible murder and she is refusing witness protection. Fortunately for her, as far as Marshall is concerned there is no place in the world safer than a medieval castle full of protective Doms.

Unfortunately for them all, the assassin hunting her from the shadows disagrees.

Coming – August 7

 

Controlling Carlie

BJ Wane

Nothing could’ve surprised Luke more than seeing the girl he’d sworn to protect at the Castle, perched on another Dom’s lap. Anger and jealousy urged him to intervene when Carlie’s stubbornness forced him to take her on as his sub for the weekend to honor his promise to her brother to keep her safe. It takes a possible threat followed by a misunderstanding to get Luke to see what’s been right before his eyes all along.

Harboring Holly

Raisa Greywood

Two years ago, Agent Flint Turner met his dream girl. The only good he’d ever done during his undercover assignment was to help her escape one of the most vicious criminals in FBI history.

After witnessing the murder of her best friend, Holly Dansen finds safety in The Castle. When she sees the killer and his henchman, she thinks her life is over, but is determined to protect her newfound family.

But Mario isn’t what he seems, and she doesn’t know what to believe. The chemistry is bubbling between them, but can she trust him to keep her safe?

BJ Wane

I live in the Midwest with my husband and our two dogs. I love dogs, enjoy spending time with my daughter, babysitting dogs and kids, reading and working puzzles. We have traveled extensively throughout the states, Canada and just once overseas, but I now much prefer being homebody. I worked for a while writing articles for a local magazine but soon found my interest in writing for myself peaking. My first book was strictly spanking erotica, but I slowly evolved to writing erotic spanking romance with a touch of suspense. My favorite genre to read is suspense.

Raisa Greywood

Raisa is an up and coming author of romance with a dark and naughty twist. Her heroes are sometimes flawed but always the alpha in the room, while her heroines are atypical and can take anything those bossy alphas dish out.

The one thing that Raisa most loves is tipping tropes on their ears and making fun of them. She also adores alliteration.

She’s lived all over the world but currently resides in the Midwestern United States with her husband, two irascible cats, and a big bay rescue horse.

BLURB

Sullivan

It’s a hot summer morning and I’m already running late.

I’m no one’s white knight, but when I see a girl in trouble, I have to help.

I didn’t know it would be Aubrey Dorado, the girl I swore was off-limits.

Now she’s under my skin and I can’t get her out of my head.

So, I did the worst thing possible and hired her to work in my gym.

Lusting after my new employee breaks my number one rule.

But each day she tempts me with her sweet personality and clever mind.

I’ve been burned by love before.

Romance is a risk I can’t afford.

But how much longer can I resist the attraction simmering between us?

Aubrey

I don’t walk my neighbor’s dog often, but when I do, of course, he knocks me off my feet.

Even better? The one to come to my rescue has to be my swoony self-defense teacher, Sullivan “Sully” Wallace.

I’m so broke that when he offers me a job, I jump at it.

Now I’m spending way too much time with my untouchable crush.

Worse, he makes it clear he has no romantic interest in me.

And just when I think he’s changed his mind, the biggest mistake of my life returns to ruin everything.

The Church

by Celia Aaron

Publication Date: June 5, 2018

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Dark Romance, Taboo

Read for FREE in KindleUnlimited!

Amazon

The explosive finale of The Cloister Series.

Trapped.

Beaten.

Broken.

Adam destroyed himself to save me. At first, I doubt if I have the strength to go on. But with every second that passes, I seethe and curse the Prophet. My time as a Maiden is over. I refuse to be a toy in his game any longer. But there’s always more ways for the Prophet to get to me, to use me, and to keep me under his influence. Will I be strong enough to break free?

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Church is the final of this wonderful series. We start where The Prophet ended. Aaron is in a bad way and Emily/Delilah is just trying to survive now not knowing if Aaron will live or die.

Noah has to finally come to terms with his family and what happened to Georgia. Is Noah going to grow up and finally going to become what he should? Or will he go down with the church his father grew?

Adam and Emily have grown throughout these books. Their love is epic and no matter what is thrown at them they overcome it. Emily is strong and knows life is worth fighting for. I loved that. She is a such a wonderful character. Adam has grown into such a great man and character. I wasn’t too sure of him in the beginning but I LOVE him. He has shown his true colors throughout this whole series and comes out the end as one of the great heroes.

If you read one series this year, make it this one!

The Prophet

by Celia Aaron

Publication Date: May 1, 2018

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Dark Romance, Taboo

Amazon

I can’t save myself from the Cloister, and maybe I never could. The Prophet grows more dangerous by the day. His delusions are steeped in blood, and if I’m not careful, that blood will be my own. Despite the growing risk, I still continue the search for the truth, no matter if the thorny path eventually twists back to Adam, guilt in his dark eyes. I’ve seen glimpses of his soul, and I know there is more to him than the monster, but it’s so hard to reach him. I knew when I came here that I’d have to fight, I just didn’t realize the war would be waged on so many fronts.

Author’s Note: If you have a trigger, this book will pull it.

REVIEW

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
 
The Prophet starts where the last book “The Maiden” ends. Delilah has been caught and is in big trouble. She is being held and tortured. Adam is beside himself for bringing her back to the Cloister but he had no choice. He knew that if he didn’t they both would be killed.
 
When Delilah is finally released Adam can’t stay away from her. He knows he is being watched by his father and the rest of the Cloister but he can’t seem to help himself. But when someone decides they want to buy Delilah he will do ANYTHING to save her. Even if it puts him in the crosshairs of everyone.
 
Delilah and Adam are two sides of the same coin. The good and the bad. I love it. Adam is doing everything he can to stay alive so he can protect the ones he loves even if they don’t want to be saved.
But there are things going on that even he doesn’t know. And when he finds out all hell is going to break loose. I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.

I joined the Cloister to find the truth. But I’ve discovered so much more, and the darkness here is seducing me, pulling me down until all I can think of is him. Adam Monroe, the Prophet’s son, a dark prince to an empire that grows by the day. He is tasked with keeping me safe from the wolves of the outside world. But the longer I stay at the Cloister, the more I realize the wolves are already inside and under the Prophet’s control. If Adam discovers the real reason I’m here, he’ll bay for my blood with the rest of them. Until then, I will be Delilah, an obedient servant of the Prophet during the day and Adam’s Maiden at night.

REVIEW

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
 
I have been a fan of Celia’s since I read the Aquisition Series, and man was that a dark and screwed up story. I had been waiting to see if she would come out with something else like that, well guess what, here it is!
 
The Cloister is a messed up story about religion, sex, drugs, and murder. This is one mindf*c# story and we are only in the first book! We start with the chosen 12 girls being taken into the fold of the Heavenly Ministries where they will get their protectors. The protectors make sure these girls are trained and commanded so they will please the Prophet.
 
Delilah is one of these girls. She is chosen by the Prophet’s son Adam, the oldest son, who has darkness in him. But when you start reading you can tell he doesn’t believe a word his father says. He is there because he has to be. He is nothing like the rest but has no other option.
 
When Adam and Delilah get together there is something about them that stands out. But Adam has to be careful because he knows that his father the Prophet will do anything to destroy what he finds Adam wants. And Adam knows there is something different about Delilah and he will do anything to find out what it is.
 
There is a lot of sexual training that goes on in this story, so if you are squeamish this is probably not the story for you. There are some triggers, but not many for me, just the training that got to me in some spots. There is forced drug use, also. But the story is wonderfully told and the characters are strong. If you are looking for a full-length novel that will keep you on your toes, this is the story for you. But it does end on a cliff-hanger and there are two more books to go.
 
I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.
