Masqueraded: Act One Pre-Release Tour & Giveaway!!

Masqueraded: Act One
by Alexis Dees
Genre: Dark Fantasy, Urban Thriller
The ebook version of this book is currently available for pre-order at a discounted price until the official release on September 18th.
Being haunted by a sinister circus wasn’t unusual for the spunky Estela Nannette Sinclair. Neither was the abuse she faced from her adoptive parents. But one was just a dream and the other would resolve in two weeks upon her eighteenth birthday… or so she mistakenly presumed. Her life was a complex façade of lies that hid how deeply she’s entangled with three powerhouses of dark magic. Had she been that ignorant of the masquerade before her? An ignorance that wasn’t bliss. And an ignorance that meant her corpse would likely decorate an amusement attraction in a mere two weeks’ time.
**On sale for only $4.99!!**
Alexis Dees is a lifelong creative writer and storyteller of all tales enchanting and unsettling. She focuses on stories that maintain a balance of whimsical fantasy, morbid darkness, and offbeat eccentricities… which sometimes ties into the matter of amusement attractions, an industry she’s been involved with professionally for nearly ten years as an entertainer. As all sensible intellects do, instead of pursuing a traditional 9 to 5, she’s ran away with the circus more than once; and when she’s not tied up in aerial silks or reading the Brothers Grimm for the millionth time, she’s likely traipsing about an abandoned amusement park.

The Horrors Hiding in Plain Sight Book Tour & Giveaway!!

The Horrors Hiding in Plain Sight
by Rebecca Rowland
Genre: Psychological Horror, Transgressive Dark Fiction, Short Stories
Three adolescent bullies discover that the vicious crime for which they were never charged will haunt them in unimaginably horrific ways; a dominatrix and a bondage fetishist befriend one another as one’s preoccupation grows to consume his life. A man persuades his wife to start a family, but her reluctant pregnancy comes with a dreadful side effect. A substitute teacher’s curiosity about a veteran teacher’s methodology provides her with a lesson she won’t soon forget. An affluent, xenophobic lawyer callously kills two immigrants with her car with seeming impunity; a childless couple plays a sadistic game with a neglected juvenile each Halloween. An abusive father, a dating site predator, a neglected concierge, and an obsessed co-worker: they are all among the residents of Rebecca Rowland’s universe, and they dwell in the everyday realm of crime and punishment tempered with fixation and madness. There are no vampires, zombies, or magical beings here; no, what lurk in this world are even more terrifying. Once you meet them, you will think twice before turning your back on that seemingly innocuous neighbor or coming to the aid of the helpless damsel in the dark parking lot. These monsters don’t lurk under your bed or in the shadows: they are the people you see every day at work, in the supermarket, and in broad daylight. They are the horrors that hide in plain sight, and they will unsettle you more than any supernatural being ever could.
Trigger Warning:
Contains graphic violence (though not continually) including accidental death, murder, and suicide; sexual content, and occasional graphic language. Sexual assault is implied but not described in a graphic nature. No animals are harmed.

Deceived
The Devil’s Syndicate Book 1
by Sarah Bailey
Genre: Dark Mafia Reverse Harem Romance
Four of them. One of me. Who will give in first?
It started when they stole me from my life. The daughter of a crime lord who ruled with an iron fist. The heir to a family of blood and ruin.
They left only a whisper of a name in the air. Il Diavolo. A man whose reputation preceded him. Ruthless. Merciless. Cunning.
The one they called the Devil. He was as beautiful as he was terrifying. Except I wasn’t scared of him or his three friends. They might want to use me in their quest for revenge, but they picked the wrong girl. Or maybe I was the right one and none of us knew it quite yet.
Our connection is undeniable. Our fates are entwined. But loyalty and lies keep us all locked in a battle of wills and denial.
There’s only one thing I know for certain in this fight between the five of us. Secrets always catch up with you in the end. And my secrets were the worst ones of all.
A dark reverse harem series with cliffhangers and drama in abundance and a HEA in the final book.
Get ready to meet Ash and her boys – Quinn, Xavier, Eric and Rory.
Defied
The Devil’s Syndicate Book 2
Two become three. Lies, lust and betrayal. Who will fall first?
It started when I chose to remain with them. The ones who took me from my life and changed all the rules.
The chains binding me to my family loosened their hold. Little did I know that by taking me, Quinn and his friends began the long process of setting me free. And even as I got closer to the boys, the past always held us back. Keeping our feelings at bay.
The questions plagued me. Where did my loyalties lie? Who could I trust? And the biggest one of all. Could I really go against everything I knew to be with the four people who kept me captive to use me against my father?
Our secrets brought us closer. Our lies tore us apart. And it became crystal clear that every decision you make in life comes at a price.
A dark reverse harem series with cliffhangers and drama in abundance and a HEA in the final book.
Get ready for more of Ash and her boys – Quinn, Xavier, Eric and Rory.
Derailed
The Devil’s Syndicate Book 3
Three mixed with four. The captive became an ally. Who will break first?
It started when they betrayed me. The ones who I’d come to trust. The ones I was starting to love.
My world flipped upside down and nothing is as it seems. Everything was unravelling before my eyes, tearing us apart whilst pulling us closer together.
I’m caught between two worlds. The one I grew up in and the one I’d started to forge with the boys. Everything came to a grinding halt when long hidden secrets came to light. The truth changed the rules and made us realise nothing in life is ever as it seems.
Sometimes the only way out of a situation is through. Never before had been truer when it came to the five of us and our future together.
Did we have a future? Or was everything too much for us to handle? The pieces were starting to fit together, but there’s always something holding us back. My family. My loyalty. My duty. And whether to throw it away or stand and fight by their sides.
A dark reverse harem series with cliffhangers and drama in abundance and a HEA in the final book.

Debauched
The Devil’s Syndicate Book 4
Four seek their fifth. The hunter devours his prey. Who will lose first?
It started with an impossible choice. One I had no wish to make from a person who’d only just come to know.
So many of our decisions had led up to this moment. Perhaps it was the way we’d come together which threw my life so off balance. Leaving me with the final say in a matter I wanted no part of.
We had to draw up the battle lines. Change our fates. Or we’d all crash and burn. It wasn’t a case of if we’d fight for survival, it was when. When would he come after us? When would he try to destroy us? When would he decide I wasn’t worth saving any longer?
The inevitable hung over us like a dark cloud. A time bomb waiting to go off. No matter how many times we tried to stay ahead, we were always one step behind. And it was perfectly clear, we had to be prepared to go to war or we might end up with nothing at all.
A dark reverse harem series with cliffhangers and drama in abundance and a HEA in the final book.
Get ready for more of Ash and her boys – Quinn, Xavier, Eric and Rory.
Depraved
The Devil’s Syndicate Book 5
Together. Apart. Where does it end?
It started with the war. The war we’d wage upon the very man who’d raised me. The war which would either tear us apart or keep us together.
We’d finally found our way to each other. The five of us gave in. It’d been inevitable from the start. Desire had forged us, but it was love which set us free. Made us into what we were. A family drenched in blood.
Everything had built up to this moment. Our final fight for survival. Our final battle against corruption. Quinn, Xavier, Eric and Rory were the ones I had to protect at all costs. Even if it meant I sacrificed parts of myself in the process.
We had so much to live for. So much to lose. Would we really win this? Would we come out the other side? Would we still be whole? And the very last question I had… Is the love we share really enough for all of us in the end?
A dark reverse harem series with cliffhangers and drama in abundance and a HEA in the final book.

Blindfolded Book Tour & Giveaway!

Blindfolded
by Breanna Hayse
Genre: Dark Romance
Author’s Note: This work of fiction might not be for anyone who is offended by erotic spankings, graphic sex, exhibitionism, anal play, pony and pet play, elements of BDSM. Just beware… Happily ever afters come in all shapes and sizes!
To protect her heart from being hurt again, Regan Cooper limits her interaction with the world through cyberspace. Alone and isolated in a mountain cabin and living vicariously through her imaginary characters, the author celebrates yet another best seller with a bottle of wine—not expecting that she would be restrained, blindfolded, and kidnapped by an obsessed fan.
Master Jay knows everything about the woman he holds captive and has plan on making her his. He promises that not only will she not be harmed, but she will finally be introduced to the erotic fantasies that she has written about in her books. Stripped, bound and left blindfolded, Regan’s terror is slowly replaced by excitement as she finds her captor to be true to his word. Forced to depend on her other senses, she discovers a world of sensuality that had only existed as part of her vivid imagination.
Having no choice but to submit to Master Jay’s desire, Regan soon finds that her initial need to escape her kidnapper is replaced by curiosity. His touch arouses her naked and vulnerable body and she eagerly waits for the next experience of pleasure, pain and testing of her own conservative sensibilities. She has no reason to trust this stranger, yet his offer of an adventure that has not been experienced by one of her fictional characters is tempting. This choice to accept venturing into the unknown will challenge the naïve woman, and will also force her to see life beyond her own imagination.
BDSM/AP lifestyler Breanna Hayse strives to give her readers truth and reality of the BDSM/Age-Play/Total Power and Erotic Exchange lifestyle.
Who am I?
I’m a native Californian gone ‘wild’, and had the opportunity to travel the globe and discover the world through the eyes of both a Marine Intelligence specialist and a BDSM lifestyler. I left the service to go into hospice nursing and grief counseling, eventually working as a marriage and family therapist for those involved in alternative lifestyle development. This experience has allowed me to gain unique inspiration for my books and offer realistic plots and relatable characters.
In 2004, my husband, John, and I joined forces to work with both submissives and dominants- teaching, training, listening and loving. Our goal was to take the mystery and fear out of the lifestyle and mentor people in safe, consensual and healthy relationships.
I was formally ‘dungeon trained’ as a Domme before discovering my submissive side when I joined the service. My scenarios are pulled primarily from either personal experience or observation, including spending time in BDSM clubs as the safety/medical officer. My multi-faceted background allows me to glean from many avenues and give a unique and intelligent literary experience through elements of fantasy and fiction. I also discuss the questions and psychology of the lifestyle in a manner that is fun and informative, and based on ‘the real deal.’
I live with my husband, musician, and fellow-author, John Hayse, and two border collies in southern California. We practice a 24/7 D&S relationship with speckles of AP (and many trips to Build-A-Bear), and happily spend every moment together that we can. My hobbies include my puppies, hiding my vanilla salt-water taffy where John can’t find it, exotic art, collecting inspirational trinkets, and developing my own paddle line. You can also see me as a featured author/instructor in professional conference settings and as a Sexpert for kinkyliterature.com.

Allison Shatters the Looking Glass by C.M. Stunich (Harem of Hearts, #3) – 5 Star Review!

51HjU3095LL.jpgStory Rating: *****
Cover Rating: A

Wow. I could not have asked for a better finale to this series, although I was really wondering how it was going there for a while. Like, you think it’s going to end one way and then it seems like it’s going to end another but it ends on an entirely different note all together. This third volume is hot, steamy, packed full of action, and as gritty and raw as I’ve come to expect from Stunich – with a touch of the whimsical, nonsensical that characterizes this series specifically. LOVED it, but kind of sad to see it end!

The cover is eye-catching and offers an accurate depiction of what readers should expect to find within the book.

My heroes and heroines haven’t had an easy time of it. But they take what life dishes out, and somehow, with grit, determination and heart – especially heart – they transform it into gold. Their gold.
Their stories – like life! – range from sweet to sexy, contemporary to suspenseful.
