BLURB
Promise me you’ll love again. I hear the last words my wife said to me every day. 
A promise I have never and will never fulfill.
My heart is stone. Impenetrable. I don’t care. I spent twenty years in prison for a crime I didn’t commit. The punishment is what I deserved. For not being there for her. I’m on one mission now. And it isn’t to find love like I promised.
It’s to kill the man that killed my wife.
It’s near the anniversary of her death now and I’m in the woods, camping.
Hunting. Keeping my skills sharp. And that’s when I happen upon her. She’s stumbling naked in the forest, cut, bruised, and half dead. I should give her to the authorities, but something about her makes the stone of my heart crumble a bit. But years ago, I made a promise I couldn’t keep.
And this girl is better off without me. I’m tarnished. No matter what, no matter how tempted, no matter how much I crave her touch, I cannot give in. Promises are made to me broken. But can I live with broken promises? The more I convince myself that I can, the more whiskey says I can’t.

AUTHOR BIO
K.L. Savage decided they were tired of looking for the kind
of books they wanted to read. They had an itch that needed to be scratched, and
as every girl knows, nothing scratches better than an alpha.

They write about gritty, alpha males, sometimes their dark sides, and the women
they love.
If you have the same itch, their alpha males should fix that.

Poe Halliday could have been my everything. The boy who allowed me to dream again. 

 

 
Over as quickly as it began, one night ended it all—the hope growing in my heart poisoned by a dark secret spit from cruel and twisted lips. 
 
The secret that stole her from me. 
 
After spending my entire life living with my mother’s demons, I refuse to let them take anything else away from me. My roots are entwined with the shadows haunting that town and running from them isn’t an option anymore. I’m stronger than they think I am, and the only way I can escape this nightmare is to fight. 
 
This time it will be on my terms. 
 
I have to go back. 
 
★★★★★ 
 

 

Stella Bradleigh shone like the brightest star. Able to keep my shadows at bay with nothing but her smile. 

 

 
I’ve been unknowingly living under the same roof as the devil incarnate—the architect of a horrific event kept secret for so long. 
 
The secret that stole her from me. 
 
When she left, my world turned cold again, and after basking in her warmth, I refuse to let it end this way. From the day she arrived, I knew my heart belonged with hers, and even though I tried to push her away, she became a part of me. The shadows in this town are no match for the ones I carry, and if she lets me, I’ll stand by her side and fight. 
 
This time it will be on her terms. 
 

 

She has to come back.

Revenge is a dish best served now
 
Fox
Let players play, let haters hate
I need my revenge, don’t make me wait
 
Revenge is a dish I’ll be serving cold
You don’t know it yet, but it will be bold
 
Before I take revenge I’ll dig two graves
One for my conscience, the other for your shame
 
Revenge is sweet, but I’m definitely not
I’m applying the heat until you’re too hot
 
Rose
Revenge is a dish best served cold
The best revenge is being me until I’m old
 
The past is in the past, where it belongs
Let’s leave it alone, can’t right those wrongs
 
I’ve paid the price, pay dearly every day
No need to hurt me, I’m hurting anyway
 
I’ll pay for what I did, with my heart and soul
Will you take me down, is that your goal?
 
 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

“DAMMMM YOU ALL AINT READY FOR THIS BOOK!!! This book takes you one hell of a heavy rollercoaster ride . Just when you think you have it all figured out BOOM the unexpected happens.”

 

“This book is intense, gritty and maddening!”

 

“Loyalty, revenge, steam, tension, more steam, suspense – Ms. Ellis has a way with words that draws you into the story, causing you to feel the various arrays of emotions that Fox, Kane and Rose are experiencing. Hold on tight, though, because you are in for one wild ride!”

 

“The plot is devious, delicious, hot and steamy, with a twist I didn’t see coming and I loved every single word.”

 

“Holy. Wow. This book sucked me in and didn’t let go. Twists, turns, bullying and revenge all rolled into an epic story.”

 

“BOOM!!! Here we go! I did not see that ending coming. Talk about a plot thickens.”

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

“Don’t turn away from this. This is where we are. This is who we are. This is what we are. If we do this, then we do it for real, and we can’t just close our eyes and magically flush all of this away like it never happened. It happened, and it shaped and colored what we are and will always be. It’s not pretty. It’s not glamorous. It’s pain. And heartache. And hurt. But it’s us. If you want us, this is what you signed up for.” Fuck. His words hit home, and something inside me twisted like a knife to the heart.

Author’s Note: The Sekten Series is a dark romance series that needs to be read in order. It is intended for mature audiences since there is a lot of graphic content, and it might not be suitable for you if you are easily triggered. Some books will be darker than others, but all are triggering none the less. This is a dark world, so read at your own discretion.
Claudia lives in the Chicagoland suburbs, and when she’s not busy chasing after her adorable little spawn, she’s fighting with the characters in her head. After not being able to keep up with them, she decided enough was enough and wrote her first novel. C. Lymari writes both sweet and dark romances that will give you all the feels. Her other talents include binge watching shows on Netflix and eating all kinds of chips.

Title: Unholy Intent

Author: Natasha Knight
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: September 15, 2020



Blurb

Monsters don’t often look like monsters on the outside.

Forced to marry a man I should hate, I’m now bound to Damian.

I sometimes wonder what he sees when he looks at me. Deer in headlights, I guess.

What I see is clear.

Darkness.
Desire.
Carnal want.

A man with too much experience.

The night he took me he told me I belong to him. He proved it on our wedding night. And I believe him when he says he’ll keep me safe. He won’t let anyone touch what’s his.

But I can’t forget what he is. Can’t forget the things he’s done.

And no matter what, I can’t let myself fall in love with him.

Excerpt

“Welcome home, Brother.”
I look up at Damian. Beautiful Damian.
He shifts his gaze to mine. 
“Didn’t I tell you to leave the locked doors alone?” he asks me, but his voice is strange. Echoing in this dusty, forgotten place.
The music starts again. That eerie sound of piano keys played slowly, so fitting to this place, this room, this house. 
My head is spinning. 
The other man, Damian’s brother, says something. His voice is similar to Damian’s but off. Like his face. Wrong.
Damian tucks hair behind my ear. 
I push his hand away, push his arms away. I turn slowly. They’re both watching me now, waiting to see what I’ll do. 
And the tune keeps playing, the chords slow. Sad.
I need to look at him. 
Can they hear my heartbeat? Blood beats like a drum against my ears. 
Run.
Run.
But I can’t run. I meet a monster at every turn. One standing behind me. The other holding me. 
He warned me about the monsters. How many more hide in this house?
“Cristina,” Damian says. 
I keep turning, my body still pressed to Damian’s.
I’ve taken shelter in my enemy’s arms. 
He’s in my periphery now. The monster. The brother. Tall, like Damian. I see the coat. It’s wet. He was the man walking back toward the house. It wasn’t Damian at all. What is out there that they go to see in the dead of night?

Praise for Dangerous Magic
“It may be a short read, but it’s sweet, and powerful, and
has a beautiful, unexpected twist. I’m in love with Heather’s feisty spirit,
the dark, magical world she lives in, and the amazing Madam Cassandra Faye for
sharing her talent with us.” – Myra Danvers, USA Today Bestselling
Author


“The plot was gripping, it was fast paced
and my heart was racing as I reached the climax of the story. The darkly
seductive edge teased to begin with before it fell over the precipice taking me
with it. An exciting read!” – Ally Vance, Goodreads


“A very unusual story and one that stole my heart with its
unexpected beauty. This was a captivating story with several plot strands that
wove together into one amazing tapestry. There is the moral dilemma plot, the
nasty family plot, the BDSM and keeping secrets plot, just to mention a few.”
– Life in the Book Lane Blog


“This was a well-written, intense, anxiety ridden, ‘Karma is
a Biotch,’ HEA, paranormal romance! You cannot go wrong by reading it.” – Terri
Trawets, Goodreads


“This story begins on a slightly dark note, dips way down,
and then gradually builds into something that’s light with laugh out loud
moments and the happily ever after is so sweet, I’m still smiling.” – Leslie
Obrien, Goodreads


“Holy. Smokes. This book has humor, twists and turns, an
HEA, sooo much heat, a delicious bit of darkness, characters that feel real
they are so well defined, a story that is intriguing, it is edited well, I
literally couldn’t ask for anything more!” – Lanai Dameron, Goodreads

Hi guys.
I’m Skye, a paranormal and contemporary romance author from rainy Northern
England. I write Paranormal romance as Skye Jones, and steamy dark romance as
S.R. Jones.
The one thing my books in both genres have in common are gritty themes, and
alpha heroes who are damaged but oh-so-redeemable!

When I’m
not writing, I’m either walking my dogs, drinking coffee, or watching my fave
TV shows such as The Sopranos, McMafia, and Little House on the Prairie, yep I
have eclectic taste!

Title: Make You
Release Date: September 29, 2020

 

Loyalty tied us together, but love could tear us apart
Kane
An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth
We’ll work together, we’ll expose the truth

I’ll have his back, like he has mine
We’ve kept our secret for such a long time

At the end of the day, when we both fall
We’ll fight fire with fire, winner takes all

Our bond is strong, we’re close as can be
With you between us, can we be three?

Rose
A rose by another name, was I ever sweet?
When I’m scared can you hear my heart beat?

When I’m alone at night, can you hear my thoughts?
Can you feel my regret for all those taunts?

If I should die before I wake will you care?
Or dance on the grave you helped me make?
When I fall for you, I’ll fall hard and deep
Why do you make me tremble and weep?
