Title: Devious Heart 
Author: Crimson Syn 
Genre: Dark Romance 
 
 
 

 

 

 
One Night. 
That’s all it took for Lilith’s world to be destroyed. 
Ever since, living life has become a soulless, mind-numbing task. 
That is until she meets a dark, handsome, mysterious stranger. 
Adrien’s the only man she’s spoken to, much less connected to, in months. 
The only one who seems to care enough to notice her through the walls she’s built.
But learning how to trust again, especially with a man she’s barely spoken to, is a battle. 
Falling in love with him, a war.
Because Adrien also holds a dark, terrible secret–one that could destroy every hard-fought step Lilith has taken since that night. 
And though kindred spirits may drift towards one another, there’s no telling how explosive this truth may be.
With a secret that could shatter them both, it might take more than love to set them free.
Then again. 
Some secrets are best kept hidden.
*****
This book contains certain themes and situations which may be severely triggering to some readers. Proceed with caution.

 

 
 
 

 

 

 

 
Author Crimson Syn was born and raised in New York City to two wonderfully witty and loving Colombian parents who have only shown their support for her throughout the years.
She started writing at the age of sixteen as an outlet for being bullied in high school. It’s probably the best thing she’s ever done in my life.

The first romance she ever read was Stephanie Laurens’ Devil’s Bride and since then she has been influenced by dozens of flourishing romance authors and even more dashing and daring rogues. Authors like Mary Balogh, Elizabeth Hoyt, Lisa Kleypas, Bertrice Small or A.N. Roquelaure’s Sleeping Beauty trilogy were her sweet introductions to erotic romance and have inspired her to this day.

 

So here she is, after reading so many wonderful stories and living out so many fantasies, she now has too many sinful tales of her own not to share. Her alphas are rough and possessive, and her wicked pen delves into any little niche of kinkiness that will fulfil your reading pleasure. Her heroines are independent, bright women with lots of sexy curves who know how to handle these naughty boys.

 

She had delightfully wicked teachers growing up, their books took her to new worlds and brought her new loves. So, she wants to do the same for you. She wants to indulge her readers in those steamy reads that will send you into the arms of dangerous alphas and deliciously sexy rogues without leaving the confines of your nice warm beds. If she is able to entice your inner goddesses, then she has done her job and she is satisfied.

 

Her Hellbound Lovers series is one of the proudest moments in her life. Wolf was her first published work and she has to say he’s opened so many amazing doors for her, and publishing him has taught her that if you set your mind to something you can accomplish anything.

She writes her characters and stories for you, her lovely readers, and she hopes she can take you away to those page turning, lip biting, bookmarking passionate tales.

Your first love is not always the first persons you kiss.
It’s the one you compare to everyone else.
The one you can’t forget.
The one you never got over. 

Luke Harris left the small Texas town he grew up in fourteen years ago, walking away from the only girl he ever loved.
Now he’s a rock star cardiologist in the heart of L.A. 
He has it all; 
The money.
The house in the hills.
The fancy car.
The success.
But his world’s about to be rocked when the one who got away drops a bomb in his lap.

Small town girl Sarah Harris never got over him.
She knew she married the wrong brother, but built a simple life for her and her daughter, despite her broken heart.
When Sarah’s forced to reveal her deepest secret, she needs to trust the man who let her down.

Sins from the past always find a way of catching up to us. But sometimes it’s the innocent who pays.

***Heart is a re-release of my Drazen World Kindle Worlds Novella. New cover, new names and minor details, same title, same steamy hotness!***
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

 

 
 
JM Kelley loves to write sexy hot Romance as much as she loves to read it. She grew up and still resides in Long Island New York with her husband of twenty-nine years and her three sons. She is a lover of baseball and has been a Yankee fan since the day she was born. If you can’t find her reading or writing she’s probably in Disney World since that’s her favorite place in earth.

The heart revs harder with gasoline in the veins.
Tesla’s love for dancing runs deeper than her toleration of her father’s MC lifestyle. That’s why she left the Razorblade Tumbleweeds motorcycle club in the first place. The academy seemed like her best bet, but all that fire in her heart and hatred in her soul keeps her dancing in a fit of rage instead of elegant grace. Realizing she can’t escape her past, she heads home to try and face all the heartache she thought she’d left behind.
Link is the new President of his MC. It’s been years since Tesla, the princess to the Razorblade Tumbleweed throne, stomped out of his world on her way to dance for fancy rich folks under bright spotlights. Of course, when things didn’t work out, she headed home. Now, not only does he need to harness all those hidden desires, he also has to help her with her new strip club idea, which means pissing off the locals, the cops, a rival MC, and some sick and twisted reverend from a religious cult.
Rye is about to turn eighteen, and in his religious community of Red Chapel, that means he can start to choose his wives. Life seems good until he finds out the young woman he loves more than anything in the world is betrothed to The Reverend, their sadistic religious leader with an insatiable appetite for power, pain, and pleasure. His only escape seems to be that ruthless band of outlaws he’s always been warned about. If he can only convince Grace to join him and Link to accept him.

 

Bikers, strippers, and religious zealots collide to create the Calm’s Storm.

“How do you make a MC HEA mix with a slightly gore-ish horror story work? Just ask CM Genovese. I’ve read MC books and there is violence and blood and bad people doing bad things. Then there is this book. The secondary story line is so twisted it’s brilliant how they come together.” – Verified Purchase

 

“This is absolutely an MC romance, but with a twist that only Chris Genovese could make fit!
Written in 3 povs there is a lot going on in this book!”
~ Verified Purchase

 

Wow. Just ~ wow. I am completely blown away and captivated by this new MC writer and his new series. LOVED IT!!! I’m hooked and will definitely be following this new series. ~ Verified Purchase

 

“Calm’s Storm” is a tantalizing, page turning tale full of danger, forbidden love and religious fanatics. The men are sexy, lethal and menacing, while the women are beautiful, passionate and independent. ~ Verified Purchase

 

 

 

Chris Genovese is a male romance and erotica author who often writes from the female perspective. He has a passion for writing sensual tales that take the average woman (or man) and place them in erotic positions. Life isn’t prude so why should we be? If you’re under the age of 18, or if you get offended easily, please don’t purchase these books. If you’re ready to be entertained, aroused, and brought to emotional climax then please do.

 

Carver Pike is my darker, more twisted alter ego . Where Chris tends to write erotic comedies, poetry, and other fun but sexy tales, Carver likes to stick a knife in it and wiggle it around. If you’re looking for horror and dark fantasy with an erotic twist, you’ve come to the right man. Who new scary could be so sexy?

About Only A Good Man Will Do:

Seriously ambitious man seeks woman to encourage his goals, support his (hopeful) position as Headmaster of Westover Academy, and be purer than Caesar’s wife. Good luck with that!

Daniel Goodman is a man on a mission. For years he has striven for perfection, fighting for the pinnacle achievement in his world of academia, Headmaster of Westover Academy. Westover, established before the American Revolution, is still one of the most prestigious schools in the country. They accept only boys whose parents fit a certain mold and only those teachers who hold to a stringent set of mores, on and off campus. Jonah considers his brother a prig. Daniel sees himself as doing his best to serve his students. How much better can he serve them as headmaster? That is what he seeks to find out.

Suddenly, into his cut and dried, strictly black and white life of moral and upright behavior, comes Eve Star, formerly one of Europe’s foremost exotic dancers. Her life is anything but cut and dried, black and white. Bad enough that she’s enrolled her son in Westover Academy under false pretenses. More, she runs the town’s most disreputable bar. Worst, much to Daniel’s dismay, he finds himself drawn to her like a kid to chocolate. Nothing good can come of this attraction. Or can it? He is after all, a good man.

Excerpt:

“Daniel, am I talking to myself, here?”

“Oh, no, I’m…” He chuckled an amused admission. “Tell me what you said again.”

He could almost hear Eve smile. “I said, you called at four-thirty on Saturday and Sunday, so I took a wild leap that you would today, too.”

“Ah.” Smiling to the empty room, he squirmed to get into a more comfortable position. “A woman of logic.”

“Absolutely. You don’t want to play me in chess. I think five or six moves ahead.”

“I’ll remember that. There’s nothing worse than seeing a guy cry when he’s been beaten at chess by a girl.”

“This series just keeps getting better and better…if that’s even possible. No one writes a rock romance like Ms. Jeanisse. She gives you the raw, gritty life of rockers who don’t follow the rules and she isn’t afraid to break your heart along the way only to put it back together again.” ~ Doris 
 
“Amazingly well written!!! I didn’t want the book to end!!!” ~ Amy
 
Zack stood next to a nearby table. He smiled at Abigail’s giddy expression. She was most definitely surprised. Her gift laid just in reach. He had hidden the small box in a pair of socks for the past week.
 
He’d planned to mail it to her. For a change, his usual procrastination worked in his favor. He hoped she liked it. Since he finally made good money, he’d purchased what had spoken to him.
 
“Hey,” Abigail said as she stood in front of Zack. “Did you help?”
 
He couldn’t meet her eyes, afraid that would portray his feelings. “Yeah. Happy birthday.” He reached over and lifted her gift. “I got you something.” When he turned, his gaze drifted to the new tattoo. Oh, fuck! He groaned to himself but hid it well. “That’s beautiful.” He stared at her cleavage. The tattoo was prominent.
 
“Thanks.” She threw her arms around him and cringed when her breasts pressed against him. “Was hoping you’d like it.” She pulled back a bit. “Should I open it now?”
 
Kyle appeared behind her and glared at Zack. “Food’s ready.” He waited until she let Zack go. “Your dad’s looking for you.”
 
“OK.” Abigail smiled and followed Kyle, who she noticed was angry.
 
Zack sighed with relief. Then he realized she hadn’t taken his present. He put it back on the table and sat down. His stomach was doing flips. Food would likely worsen it. His gaze fell on her. She hugged partygoers and laughed. She’s happy, and that’s all that matters.
 
His eyes roamed her body unconsciously and stopped at her tits several times. The tattoo was eye catching and looked amazing on her.
 
“Should I make you a plate?” Shane asked Abigail as she greeted more guests. “We got most of your favorites.”
 
She smiled, excited. “After presents?”
 
“Eighteen hasn’t changed you, huh?” Shane hugged her. “How about you open my gift, then we eat?”
 
She jumped in his arms. “You bought me another present?” She thought the tattoo was her gift. “Can I open it? Please?”
 
“Yeah.” Shane led her to a table with a few wrapped boxes. He selected the ones from him. “Hope you like it.”
 
Curious, she tore the paper. When she saw the box, she squealed. “You really got it? You said I was too young.”
 
“Trying to throw you off.” Her happiness meant everything to him. “This too.”
 
Abigail was beyond grateful. He had bought her a professional camera and lenses. “I can’t believe this.” She hugged him fiercely. “Thank you so much!” She hoped she had the chance to use it that week.
 
“You can open a few more later.” Shane directed her toward the food. “We got vegetable lasagna.”
 
“You’re the best, Daddy.”
 
Most of the bands set to play that day attended the party. Alcohol prevailed, but the drinkers were respectful of the occasion. Music played in the background. Everyone had good clean fun for a change. It didn’t compare to the parties they normally had. Shane was grateful it had worked out so well.
 
Soon after they handed cake out, the party started to wind down. Crew members needed to finish setting up the stage. Zack figured he should help, so he followed Dave toward the exit.
 
“Wait!” Abigail ran up to him when he reached the door. “You’re leaving? I didn’t open your gift.”
 
He smiled. “Right, sorry.” Instinctively, he checked to see if anyone was watching them. No one paid them any mind. He pulled the box out of his jacket pocket. “It’s just something that made me think of you.”
 
Excited, Abigail tore the wrapping and stared. Her pulse raced. He got me jewelry? She opened it slow. “Oh my God!” The pink heart diamond pendant was gorgeous. “I love it.” Unable to hold back, she jumped on him and wrapped her legs around his waist.
 
It shocked Zack when she kissed him. However, he automatically embraced her. His cock swelled when she eased her tongue into his mouth. He didn’t resist and delved his into hers. A soft moan slipped out as her hand gripped his back. Then he came to his senses and forced her to her feet.
 
“I’m sorry.” Zack backed away from her. “That was… That was…”
 
She grinned. “Amazing. I love how you kiss.” She moved closer and freed the necklace from the box. “Put it on me. Please.”
 
With shaky hands, Zack laid the pendant on her chest, then closed the clasp. His gaze went to her breasts again. The heart settled right between them, nestled perfectly. “Wow.”
 
“It’s perfect.” She hugged him again, that time on her feet. “I love you too.”
 
His eyes opened wide. “Wait, no. That’s not what it means.” He stepped back. Fear gripped him. “It’s just a birthday gift.”
 
Her reaction made him realize how extravagant and significant the pendant was. He’d purchased it without thinking of that. The impulse to please her had overruled his mind.
 
“I’m sorry if you misunderstood.”
 
Her eyes watered for a few seconds. “It’s OK. I love it.” She hoped it meant he wanted to be with her. “Thank you.” She turned and rushed to the bathroom to get herself together.
 
Zack watched her until the door closed. He hated to hurt her. I need a drink. He sighed. No. I need to work. As planned, he left and headed for the stage.

Bella Jeanisse lives for rock music. Addicted to concerts, Avenged Sevenfold, fictional rockers, and blasting music in the car, she can’t get enough. After her father turned her on to Queen, there was no going back. Of course, it didn’t stop there. Playing guitar became a pastime, which didn’t turn into a career… until she started to pen her fantasies and publish them.
Originally from Brooklyn, New York City, she grew up with access to clubs like L’Amour and CBGBs, hung out in Greenwich Village, as well as had plenty of friends in bands. No wonder rockers stayed on her mind. Bringing her ideas to life was a long time coming.
She is now living near Tampa, FL with 3 kids and 3 grandkids, as a single mom. Her family supports her writing even when it seems to take up more time than they feel is necessary. Can’t stop the muse, ya know!
Besides erotic rock star romances, Bella also writes about wild bikers, hot college men and more.

blurb

Saint

My heart on lockdown, my plan set, I wait.

Five years ago, I was set up by the woman I loved. Five years, I’ve spent locked in a cage waiting for the moment to get my revenge. Now, I’m free and ready to take my pound of flesh.

Then one day Rebel steps inside the cell I’m still trapped in and derails everything. She’s fire and fury and—beautiful. All my carefully laid plans—my vengeance—gone somewhere between the moment our eyes meet and the moment she says hello.

Rebel

My trust shattered, my heart broken, I enter.

Five years ago, I was in a wreck that tore my body to pieces. Five years, I’ve inked my skin, hiding the scars that tell the brutal story of a night I barely walked away from.

When I step inside the beautiful cell Saint’s trapped himself in, everything changes. He’s a beast in a cage—predatory, beautiful, and dangerous in a way that makes me want to run.

Truths from the past emerge alongside old enemies. We must question everything—including each other. Can our newfound love survive, or will it crumble beneath the weight of the past and the scars that threaten to break us?

excerpt

REBEL

I watch Saint get dressed from my position in the bed. It didn’t take him long after this last round to decide to get up and leave. And why shouldn’t he? You don’t stay over for a casual hookup. I understand this, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t hurt. This is why I’ve never been big on being a casual kind of person. I don’t like how lonely it makes me feel.

I sit up as Saint makes his way back over to me. He leans down and kisses the top of my head.

“Thanks for tonight, Cupcake. I’ll see you around.”

He heads toward the bedroom door when the anger hits me. I don’t let my temper come out often but when I do, you better watch out because it’s like a tornado with the ability to wipe out the entire fucking state.

“Are you fucking serious right now?” I hiss, wrapping the sheet around me and climbing from the bed.

He’s heard me because he stops in his tracks and his back straightens. I watch his back rise and fall with what I’m assuming is a deep breath.

When he turns to me his face and eyes are blank. I get nothing of the man that was inside me not even ten minutes ago. I don’t get the man I had at the bar nor the man I brought home with me. No, the person I get now is the man that’s still locked behind the prison walls.

“What?” he asks in frustration.

I stand there wrapped in nothing but a sheet, my pussy still throbbing from his brutal thrusts, and stare at Saint. What happened? When did I lose the man that was in my bed? The one that gives sweet kisses to the neck and runs his knuckles down my face?

“That’s it?”

I keep my voice soft because if I don’t, I’ll lose the last hold on my temper that I have. Saint sighs running a hand through his hair. He walks back over to me.

“Look. That,” he waves his hand in the bed’s direction, “was all that this was ever going to be.”

I’m not stupid. Understanding that’s all this was isn’t hard when he continuously points it out, but he could have lounged in the bed with me for five fucking minutes instead of jumping up the minute he got off. I’m not going to examine how I felt when he did that. I’m going to do what he seems to be good at. I hide everything that’s building inside me behind a flimsy wall quickly built.

I raise a brow at him. “You couldn’t wait for five fucking minutes after you shot off to climb out of the bed and get dressed.”

“I didn’t want you to get the wrong idea if I stayed in bed with you,” he growls.

I snort. “What? That you’re a decent human being instead of an asshole?”

“That this is more than a few rounds of sex, goddammit!”

I shake my head and cluck my tongue. “You’re pretty full of yourself, aren’t you?”

“You telling me that you weren’t already feeling it?”

He holds my eyes, so I do my best to keep my face blank. I was already feeling it, but I’ll be damned if I let him learn that. Not if I ever want to see him again, and I do. There’s something about Saint that calls to me. I don’t know if it’s the loneliness I can read in him, the anger and pain, or if it’s the man himself. But I’m going to take Marina’s advice. I may not have wanted a relationship, but something put Saint in my path for a reason. I’ve just got to figure out what that reason is.

“No, Saint. I wasn’t already feeling it. Unless you mean the three orgasms you gave me before you jumped out of bed like it was on fire. If that’s what you’re talking about then hell yeah I was feeling it.”

His lips twitch and his eyes warm a fraction. It’s not a full-on victory but I’ll take it.

“Now, let me lay this out for you, sugar. I know that you’re not looking for anything permanent. Neither am I. If you’re worried I can’t keep this casual, then don’t be. You give me good orgasms.” I shrug. “I’m not willing to give those up yet. So, we’ll continue this until the fire between us burns out.”

Let’s hope lighting doesn’t strike me dead for the lie I just told. He must accept me at my word because his body relaxes, and I even get a tiny smile. One of these days I’ll get the full smile and I’m sure when I do it’ll be the moment I fall. Until then, I suppose I’ll hang on and enjoy the ride.

I let go of the sheet, feeling it flutter to the floor, grab a fist full of his shirt and pull his mouth to mine. I swirl my tongue around his, tantalizing and seducing, before pulling back with a nibble to his lip.

“You can go now. Call me when you want to do this again.” I turn, still naked, walk out of the bedroom, and head towards the bathroom. I toss over my shoulder, “If you don’t mind, would you lock the door behind you?”

Once I make it to the bathroom, I wrap my hands around the lip of the sink and bow my head as my breathing escalates. The flimsy wall I had eradicated comes crashing down. A tear leaks down my cheek as everything that the wall was holding back comes rushing in like a tsunami. I raise my head and look at the woman in the mirror. I don’t see the beautiful woman with bright green eyes and curly blonde hair. I see a woman whose ex didn’t love her enough not to get high before getting behind the wheel. I see a woman who’s been belittled and controlled by the man that should have loved her. I see a woman who’s too scared to fix herself, so she tries to fix someone else.

The slamming of the front door is the only indication that Saint has left and I’m assuming he may not be thrilled about the fact that I dismissed him. He’ll have to get over it. I needed to get away from him before I couldn’t handle any of the shit anymore. I’ve left the ball in his hands so it’s going to be up to him to play the game or get off the court.

I wipe my eyes and turn on the shower. It’s after two in the morning and I’m freaking tired, but I’m also sweaty and smell like a brothel. No way will I be able to sleep until I’m clean.

Once I’m under the spray of hot water, I let it beat down on me releasing the tension I didn’t realize I had. My eyes start to get heavy, so I grab my shampoo. The smell of green apples fills the small space as I scrub my fingers through my hair.

Minutes later, I’m shutting off the water and stepping out. I grab my fluffy green towel from the rack and dry my body off. Wrapping it around me, I head back to my bedroom. I have all intentions of putting on pajamas, but my bed looks way too inviting.

I lay down across it telling myself I’ll get up in a few minutes to dry my hair and put on clothes. Things don’t go as planned, though, seeing as soon as I hit the comfortable mattress I’m out within minutes and don’t wake until morning.

BLOG TOUR ~Murder: The Shadow Keepers Series Book Four ~ by Jas T. Ward

Murder Blog Tour Banner 3

murder

Blurb 2 

Welcome Back to the World of The Grid.

Where heroic bad-asses looking for a second chance fight a war among us in the shadows.

Marcus De Monte was born in Hell, both literally and figuratively.
Birthed by a demon, sired by a human and considered a failure from the
moment he took his first breath. Nothing more than fuel for the Hell
fires. Allowed to live by Lucifer himself, he became determined to reach
the top of the food chain by becoming an elite assassin in the Dark
Lord’s army.

After reaching that bloody, hard-won goal he chose a path not ordered by
Hell—one leading to love. But that love became doomed the moment it
bloomed. Fueled by rage of its loss, his payment was the shameful duty
of bodyguard to the Keeper of Madness – Reno Sundown and his family. But
denied destiny has fatal consequences. The one chance Marcus had of
being reunited with the one he loved vaporized.

But destiny has a way of masking itself until its time, and Marcus is
no exception. Will the newest Keeper find his heartbeat, even when it
beats quietly from the past?

Or has Hell played the ultimate trick on Marcus… and the past to burn love to ash once more?

And the dark power of Murder has a new host, and it has its own scores to settle.

“Why the Ward Way? Because I believe in writing books that take a
reader on a thrill-ride. Action, danger, drama, sure. But also laughter,
tears of joy and moments that make you want to stop just to scream.  My
books are twisted, complex and full of heroes and heroines full of
flaws and heart, but a reader cannot deny–total badasses. Welcome to my
worlds, take a seat, get to know me and the characters and I assure you…
You’ll be glad you did.”  ~Jas T Ward

Jas T. Ward has always used writing as a necessary escape. With a
past marred by a difficult childhood and domestic violence as well as
being homeless as an adult, Ms. Ward lost her creative voice when she
lost her soul mate to suicide.  Finding that creative voice once again
in writing in social media via blogs and creative writing groups, Ms.
Ward gathered other writers & founded Dark Hunter Nights, which has
over 2,000 members & is one of the largest and longest-running fan
fiction groups on Facebook.

Through her work with Nights, Ms. Ward developed characters that were
diverse, different and unique.  Fans of the group encouraged her to use
her literary talents and give her characters life in books, and The
Shadow-Keepers Series was born.   Ms. Ward quickly became known for
writing books filled with action, drama, laughter, darkness and
unimaginable plot twists, and her books have won awards from various
blogs and other outlets.  A bestselling author on both Amazon & ARe
Romance, Ms. Ward has been described as the Robin Williams of authors:
so damn funny and talented, but with a darkness that calls to you,
causing you to want to know more.

Ms. Ward’s books have also been reviewed by Ind’Tale Magazine, and
have been nominated for the magazine’s prestigious RONE awards for the
last three years, each time a finalist.  LUST, Book 2 of The
Shadow-Keepers Series, was the recipient of the following awards from
Rant & Rave Book Blogs Preditors & Editors Reader Poll:  Best
Dark Fantasy 2015, Best F/F Romance 2015, & Top 10 Reads of 2015.

While her fans enjoyed the dark, twisty romance of The Shadow-Keepers
Series, they believed in Ms. Ward’s potential to write other genres,
and challenged her to write a contemporary, traditional romance.  She
completely failed, but the result was Love’s Bitter Harvest; and just
like that, a style was born – Romance:  The Ward Way.  True to the style
that her fans adore so much, Ms. Ward’s romances are funny,
unpredictable works with twisted turns to keep the readers guessing;
after all, the path to love isn’t easy.

While her first passion is writing and reading, Ms. Ward also enjoys
networking with other authors and helping those who are just starting
their careers in the crazy world of indie book publishing.  She is an
ever-positive presence on social media, offering encouragement and
advice to her fellow authors.  She is a founding member and
administrator of the Girls Gone Writing/GGW Reader Group on Facebook,
which has over 5,000 members and is a drama-free place for everyone –
readers, authors, bloggers & fans alike – to talk books.

In 2018, Ms. Ward combined her experience as an executive project
manager with her bestselling award-wining writing skills and founded
Ink-N-Flow Management Group.  Ink-N-Flow was founded with the mindset
that talent, efficiency, creativity and resources could not only
coexist, but thrive. Ink-N-Flow is a one-stop shop for small businesses,
giving those businesses the ability to give wings to their dreams.

Born and raised in Texas and spending time living in Kentucky, Ms.
Ward spends her days and nights writing as therapy to deal with life and
all that it brings—from the past and present. And hopefully finds joy,
laughter and fun to mix in with the dark. Something her readers have
come to love in her works. She is the proud parent of three very
independent grown children and grandmother to three delightful
grandchildren.

She has three fur babies that sit and ponder why their human is
talking to herself late into the night as she writes out colorful and
diverse if not twisted characters and tales.

When asked why she writes, Ms. Ward answers simply: “Reading saved
me. It was my salvation and my haven. I now strive to pay that gift back
by writing books that can give the same to others. And to keep myself
sane.”

Blurb:

There’s a girl asleep by my bed. Her name’s Sophie and she’s the love of my
life.

She doesn’t know that. I’ve never told her.

I’ve been the biggest asshole the world has seen.

I want everything from her but I can’t ask for it. I fucked up, I’m
probably dying, and it’s too late for second chances…

This is a standalone story in the Wild Men world (companion to Dark Child).
This is the story of Cosima’s sister (Cosima is Merc’s girl).
