Author: Jade West 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 


From USA Today bestselling author Jade West, a collection of bestselling novels, bonus content AND an exclusive novella!

Dear Santa,
I’ve been a bad girl, but I still want a Daddy for Christmas…

Mr Hart is my big, bad new boss and my biggest Christmas wish of all.
He’s everything I ever wanted. Gorgeous, stern, powerful.
Totally off limits for a silly young office trainee like me.
He’s asked me to house sit his empty home for the holidays, and it’s a sneak peek into his private life I can’t resist.
I’m just begging you, please Santa. Please make sure Mr Hart is waiting under the tree this Christmas morning.
Preferably naked, if you’re feeling particularly generous.
Love from your very bad little good girl,

The set contains 3 full-length novels: Call Me Daddy, Sugar Daddies and Dirty Daddies, including bonus content for all three, and an exclusive Daddy novella perfect for Christmas!

Jade has increasingly little to say about herself as time goes on, other than the fact she is an author, but she’s plenty happy with this. Living in imaginary realities and having a legitimate excuse for it is really all she’s ever wanted. Jade is as dirty as you’d expect from her novels, and talking smut makes her smile. She lives in the Powys countryside with a couple of hounds and a guy who’s able to cope with her inherent weirdness. She has a zebra print living room, and fights a constant battle with her addiction to Coca-Cola.

Title: Christmas Dragon Style 
Author: Serena Akeroyd 
Series: The Sanguenna Chronicles 

With Christmas around the corner, Sanguenna and leader of her Coven, Mia LeRoche, has nothing more on her mind than a lucrative holiday season at her night club. Then, a dragon pops up in her life, informs her he’s her mate, doesn’t understand the Internet, is seriously confused by Netflix, and continuously calls her his ‘lemon’.
Once friends with the Vikings, Remy Dreconis has seen and done a lot. What he hasn’t done, however, is his mate. The horizontal tango is in his future if she can get past the fact he was around for the Black Death and really doesn’t understand how cell phones work.
For five centuries, the Mother has forsaken dragonkind, denying them their lemans because of a heinous crime committed by one of her children. Remy and Mia must traverse a new phase in dragon society, creating history as they go. 
But Mia’s stuck on the fact she has to live in a realm with no cell service, and Remy’s obsession with books tops her love of Jimmy Choos. This odd couple shouldn’t have what it takes to form a lasting mate bond, but the Mother knows something they don’t…

Standalone full-length novel with a smexy hero and a heroine who’ll make you LOL. 
Book two in the series is coming February 14th 2018!

Serena Akeroyd is a romanceaholic. She won’t touch a book unless she knows there’s a happy ever after at the end of it.

A citizen of the world, Serena is a nomad at heart, and her novels enable her to travel the globe and all behind her computer desk. Naturally, she’d prefer the option of a private jet, but still, if wishes were horses, eh?

Cover Reveal ~ Deplorable: White Knights MC #2 ~ Author: Selene Chardou ~ Genre: @NARomance/Suspense

Title: Deplorable
Series: White Knights MC #2
Author: Selene Chardou
Genre: NA Romance/Suspense
Release Date: December 27, 2017 

Cover Design: Arijana Kracic from Cover It Designs

Catrin Lund-Decker has turned her back on the FBI and decided being with Jake Decker is better than anything she’s ever experienced before in her life. They have their family and Jake has made their union official — in the biker community and beyond.

Ghosts of the past still haunt them and although they would like to spend their lives in bliss, neither Catrin nor Jake have the option.

They have been branded criminals — nefarious individuals on the run — and there are few people who can restore their reputation and erase the taint.

Will Catrin and Jake do what’s right or will they decide all out war against the very institution that coddled them for far too long?

Catrin knows that family is everything and Jake is now a part of that equation. She will do anything she can to protect him and their son, even if it costs her everything she’s worked so hard for her whole life.

They’re both willing to risk everything even if they end up with nothing. It’s the code and the way of life in the biker world. They are past the point of no return and never has being so bad ever felt so good.


Freaky, kinky, and unconventional.



Fascinated with the unique and underexplored, psychologically obsessed with the human psyche, and stories that can be both romantic but push the buttons past a reader’s comfort zone. “I want readers to think, and if any part of my story is left with them after they finish one of my novels, or novellas then I have done my job.”
The worst rating Selene Chardou can think of a reader giving her is “Meh.” Love her novels or hate them but at least she has had the satisfaction of knowing she made a reader feel something—anything other than numb—while they were reading her books.
Selene Chardou enjoys living right next door to Hell, also known as the Las Vegas Metropolitan Area, which is pretty toasty especially in the late spring, all of summer and early autumn. She has two daughters who are six and a half years apart so beside author, she also works as referee, counselor, part-time maid and taxi driver.
An avid reader herself, she enjoys big five published authors, hybrid authors like herself, and indie authors. She daydreams a lot about what her next book will be about, and brushes up on her very rusty French at least a few times a week.

— A dark smile crossed her face as she stalked closer. “I told you I’d come back for you. I imagine you now have a pretty good idea of what death looks like. You’re staring right at her.” —

Arryn is doing all she can to prepare for the war to come, including paying a visit to an old friend. As the time for war draws nearer, Arryn learns just to what lengths her family and friends will go to in order to fight for her.

And she can’t let them down.

The war for the Dark Forest is on, and Arryn is doing what she does best–dealing out justice.

With her friends both old and new at her side and her familiars at her back, she plans to rain hell down on the dark druids for all they’ve done.

PrologueOn the ground, among charred grass, plants, and trees that still smoldered and cracked with the intense damage that had been done to them, laid a young woman. She didn’t move, didn’t breathe, and she was face down, with blood pouring from her ears and down her face.

Just outside of her immediate area, lying amongst the damage, were several others. Some of them were dead, their bodies mangled and blown apart, while others were much like the young woman: just outside of what had been the area of greatest impact, unconscious, but near death.

Her eyes shot open, and a deep breath painfully filling her lungs. A scream bubbled up in her chest, but her broken ribs wouldn’t allow her to call out as she continued to gasp for air, tears coming to her eyes.

Slowly, she stood on shaky legs, clutching at her side as she leaned against a tree and looked around the area with blurry eyes. The light that shined through what was left of the canopy blinded her, and there was an intense ringing in her ears. Everything else sounded muffled in comparison, like she had a thick pillow over her ears while trying to listen.

She could hear the faint crackles of the trees that were still on fire echoing through her impaired ears, but something else made its way to her. Was that crying? Somehow, she felt curious, but didn’t care much past that. It was only a faint sound, but she just couldn’t make it out. It seemed foreign to her right then.

Letting it go, the woman turned herself around, her eyes taking in the sights around her. There was smoke slightly wafting into the area. It wasn’t enough to choke her, but she certainly felt the dryness in her throat and nose with every painful breath. There were bodies all over, but she didn’t recognize any of them.

A few yards away, she saw what must have been gallons upon gallons of blood splattered all over the trees and forest floor, body parts strewn about. Intestines, organs, and human limbs littered the ground all around her.
But there was nothing inside her.

No sadness. No anger. No emotions of any kind.

She felt as if she were asleep, dreaming. None of that was real. Not the burning forest or the mutilated bodies, however that had happened. Not the scent of the smoke or death around her. Not the crying men and women on the ground that she had now made eye contact with. She just groaned and shook her head as some of them grasped at her ankles as she walked by.

It was all a dream.

Ears still ringing and her eyes still sensitive to the light, the young woman stumbled through the woods, periodically wiping the blood streaming down her forehead. It continued to drip down her brows and into her eyes.

Without knowing or understanding why, there were times she came to a stop, leaning against a tree. She wondered if her body knew something that she didn’t. Was she tired? She didn’t feel tired…

She sighed, letting that go, too. It didn’t matter. She wasn’t really in control of herself, and that was fine. It was just a dream, and she would be awake soon.

She continued to walk, not knowing where she was going, but not caring. She just needed to get away from that mess, that nightmare. Before long, she found herself coming to the edge of the river. There was something familiar about it, but she just assumed it was another part of the dream playing tricks on her.

After all, she had never been there before.

She continued to walk forward, smiling suddenly as she looked down at the rushing water. At that moment, she found herself wondering how badly it would hurt to bend over and take off the boots she didn’t remember putting on.

Shrugging, she decided they would dry eventually. It was the water that was important now. Maybe it would help her wake up.

The ringing in her ears had yet to stop, but she heard something trying to break through it. It sounded as though someone was screaming at her from below the surface of the water. She smiled, wanting to laugh. That can’t happen. They would drown.

She shook her head, quickly wiping the blood away again as it dripped into her eyes, burning them unmercifully. There it was again, the sound, that yelling. It was louder now, but she couldn’t understand what that person was yelling, let alone why.

It was so peaceful there, why would anyone want to scream?

“Arryn!” the sound came again, only this time she made out the word.

Turning, she looked around, but saw nothing. The action made her feel a little dizzy, and she laughed as she stumbled over to a large rock by the river bank.

“Arryn!” The voice had completely broken through the ringing now, and she saw a man stepping out of the forest and walking toward her.

Who was he, and why was he shouting at her?

“Arryn!” he said, his voice taking on a relieved tone now instead of the frantic one he’d had before. As she looked at him with total confusion, the relief fell from his expression, a look of worry replacing it. “Arryn?”

She laughed again, pointing at the man who seemed terribly worried about someone named Arryn. “I…” She coughed, realizing the smoke had done more to her throat than she had thought. But she would wake soon—so again, it didn’t matter. “I don’t know who that is. You have the wrong person.”

The man stared at her, his long, blonde hair blowing slightly in the breeze. He began to shake his head a bit as he stepped closer. “You are Arryn.”

The young woman’s smile fell as he began to approach her. She had no idea who he was, and he was much larger than she was. There were knives on his belt, and blood on his clothes and hands. There were even a few drops on his face.

At that moment, she thought back to the dead bodies she had seen littering the area she had awoken in.

“It was you! You hurt them.” The thought had occurred to her to run away, but why? She wanted to see where this dream went.

The man’s eyes flashed green, earning a gasp out of the young woman before he said, “I’m sorry to do this, but it’s for your own safety.”

Dream or not, she didn’t want to stick around to see what he meant by that.

She tried to move quickly, but he was much faster. Vines shot out from the ground, wrapping her from her elbows down to her ankles. They held her tight, keeping her from moving at all.

The man made his move then, running up and placing his hands on either side of her face. His hands were large, and very warm. Something about that warmth felt familiar as it raced through her entire body.

And then everything began to change. She didn’t like this, not at all.

Suddenly, she was painfully aware that her ribs had been crushed, and was now aware of the splitting headache she had. She began to see memories flashing through her mind, explosions in the forest, and then she became aware of even more.

It wasn’t a dream. It wasn’t a dream at all.

Within moments, though it seemed like an eternity, her ribs cracked back into place, her headache dissipated, and she took her first painless breath.

“Is it you?” he asked cautiously. “Do you know where you are what happened?”

She slowly nodded, her expression reflecting the rage that was quickly coming back with all her other emotions now that her broken mind had been healed. All the bodies she saw in the forest came back to her. They hadn’t been a dream either.

They will pay for this, she thought.

Wasting no time, Arryn said, “Get me a fucking healer. I need to be at full capacity. I made a promise to Alaric, and I’m about to make good on it.”

It’s time to teach this royal brat a lesson she’ll never forget.
I know the rules
I know sweet, sassy little princesses like her are strictly
off-limits to rough and tumble, non royals like myself. I know
that even though I’ve made billions with nothing but these two strong hands and
an iron will, they’ll say I’m no good for her.
They might be right, but that won’t stop me.
I’ve been watching Princess Colette for longer than she
knows. The mouthy little spitfire’s been tempting me, and a
man can only take so much.
I’ve waited patiently, hungering for her sweet curves. I’ve
told myself that she’s too young for me, or too innocent – that she’s too untouched for
me to touch.
But when I find out about this “suitor’s ball” in the next
kingdom over, and about some snot-nosed little prince thinks he can
marry her up instead of me, I’m not waiting any longer.
Fuck the rules, and the hell with what they’ll say. I’ve
denied myself long enough, and it’s time to show this princess how a man takes
what’s his.
I’ll treat her like a princess, but I’ll claim her
like a queen.
