Detective Sydney Marr is having a very bad day. Her boss is on the warpath, she’s being treated for a werewolf bite, and her current case has hit a dead end. When her friend Erika talks Syd into going with her to Club Beam, she jumps at the chance, even if it means spending an evening without her spell arsenal. A high-class vampire bar and fetish club, Club Beam is fantasy made real.
Club owner and Dom Gideon Raines spies the red-haired beauty and is transfixed. A fight against a skillful murderer brings war for fae and vampire alike. Sometimes when you play with monsters, the monsters play back.
This book is dedicated to all of my readers. Writing under the Beyond Fairytales line and the creation of the Shadow World series was both fun and a challenge. When I was presented with the fairy tale "The Beam" I had to really think about how I wanted to portray the story. For those of you not familiar with the tale, it is a short piece about a woman who shows up a wizard and proves him to be a fraud. He gets his revenge in a very public way. How could I take this story and twist it into an urban fantasy setting and add a little kink to boot? I wanted a strong female character that could handle herself in a conflict, but still dealt with her own insecurities. Could she stand up to the opposing force in the story and somehow come out swinging? You bet.
Sydney is a fun and feisty heroine both witchy and quirky. Gideon is the perfect vampire alpha male Dom to curl her toes. Club Beam is a place of magic and mystery, where the Red Door overlooks the fun and frivolity of the main club floor. Fairy tales are for real here and some of them bite…and hard. The club is a refuge for vampire, fae and other mythical creatures; it is also a lure of many decadent delights.
I hope you will enjoy the introduction to my Shadow World series and return to Club Beam for many more adventures.

All that glitters could be murderous...
Detective Bryce Richardson is a werewolf on a mission. A murderer is stalking the city streets, and all signs point to one very gorgeous lady with a string of one-night stands and a growing pile of bodies. Watching her with her blind rescue dog tugs on his heartstrings, and he finds himself falling for his chief suspect, hook, line, and sinker. A true mate is hard to find and when his animal speaks, he's learned to listen. But can Bryce keep his head long enough to solve the murders, or will he be next in the killer's sights?
Emily Vargas has been taken captive. As part of his conditioning methods, her captor refuses to speak to her, knowing how much she craves human contact. He's far too beautiful to be a monster. Combined with his lack of violence toward her, this has her walking a fine line at the edge of sanity. Told in the first person from Emily's perspective, Comfort Food is a tale of erotic surrender that explores what happens when all expectations of pleasure and pain are turned upside down, as whips become comfort and chicken soup becomes punishment.
Faith Jacobson was in the wrong place at the wrong time. After witnessing a mob hit, she’s only moments from death when Angelo Raspallo decides to give his brother an unlikely gift.
Leo has avoided involvement with the family business, but it doesn’t make him a saint. He’s troubled and ashamed by his darker sexual desires, one of which is to own a slave. But when his brother throws Faith at his feet, repainting the scenario to make Leo the hero rescuing her from certain death, his moral fortitude will be tested. If Faith were kinky, it would be easy to live out his fantasy, but she’s not. Not even a little bit. Even the mildest spanking sparks terror in her that Leo can’t bear.
The gift soon becomes a burden as he fights with himself over how to handle the addition to his home. He could release her, but his brother doesn’t do loose ends. The only thing keeping her out of the bottom of the harbor is Leo’s mercy. She’s like a beautiful piece of art he keeps in a glass case but can never touch. Is possessing her enough?
Veronica Cason lives in a small apartment with no clear view of the sky. It’s uncertain which might crush her first: her debt or the buildings squeezed in so tight that they surround her like ominous sentinels. She can’t breathe in the city. Her success is a lie, and her debt is coming to collect her—unless someone else gets there first.
When a stranger offers her a job at a ranch, it feels like salvation, but it could also mean her death if his motives aren’t pure. Which door has the tiger behind it? The claustrophobia of the city or ranch life under an open sky?

What Readers are Saying About Comfort Food:
"If you enjoy reading romance lightly drizzled with some vanilla sex and a dusting of fairy tale fantasies wrapped up in a happy ending, then this is probably NOT the book for you. If you want to expand your mind while reading a steamy hot BDSM psychological thriller with an mind blowing ending, then go ahead and give this a try. I dare you." - Wendy G
"This is a very unusual and good story that explores themes of power, control, dominance and enforced submission and the psychology of captivity, isolation and reliance, but as it turns out the story is told from the perspective of both the Dominant Master as well as Emily and her journey into submission." -Carocaro
"Kitty Thomas took me on a psychologically revealing roller coaster of a ride in Comfort Food. It's a story that explores dominance & control, forced captivity, sensory deprivation, non-con BDSM, & eventual forced submission..." - Angela Wallace
"Comfort Food is crazy. Emily Vargas is crazy. Her captor is definitely crazy. And, after reading this book, I think I might be a little crazy. Can a book give you Stockholm syndrome by proxy? Because it definitely feels that way." -Letitia
"The exploration of Stockholm syndrome was insightful. To see conditioning techniques successfully applied was fascinating. This is a memorable tale; I certainly have never read a story like it. I read it in a few hours. The erotica was dark BDSM / master-slave." - Sinfunni
" I wonder if perhaps I've read so much dark erotica that it's lost some of it's shock value for me. I know that the only acceptable feeling to have towards Mr. Tall dark and nameless is disgust yet I never quite made it there. I'm choosing not to look to far into what that says about me as a woman, but hey, its fiction. That makes it ok. Right?" - Amazon Customer
"First let me start out by saying, this is DARK erotica. If you do not like this kind of book, don't read it...i get tired of reading reviews dissing the dark erotica/ dubious consent, stating it was "sooo uncomfortable" well don't read these titles, duh! Now for me, I love it. Dark Erotica is unpredictable, unconventional and most of all a whirl wind of emotions.
Furthermore, saying that you could not form an attachment to Emily and Master is like saying you didn't read the book, it was about nothing but Emily and Master. I guess if one is unable to get past the kind of twisted relationship they had, then it would be hard to form attachment." - Amanda Rae
"`Comfort Food' is dark erotica. Kitty Thomas is writing extreme BDSM erotic fiction - master/slave masochism without the simulated `tie me up, tie me down' sex games... The Wasabi of Erotica" - Dee18
"I had read novels about bdsm and Stockholm syndrome but not like this. This one ruined many other books for me in that genre, lol, because it was that good (this is the one to beat). Comfort food crossed this little fine line between reality and fantasy . the majority of the books on the capture/kipnap/slavery theme you can view them like fantasy but Ms Kitty Thomas push the envelope taking it to a more realistic and plausible scenario. The severe case of Stockholm syndrome that Emily had towards Master is shocking, and let you wonder when does Stockholm syndrome grows into obsession or love." - Jay Benitez
"My first dive into Dark Erotica and Kitty Thomas leaves me begging for more. As disturbing as Comfort Food is, it was also riveting. Emily Vargas has been taken captive, and in order for her captor to break her to his will, he removes the one thing she craves most--human contact. He tortures her with silence and offers comfort with chicken soup. And all too soon, Emily learns what it will take to get her abductor to give her what she craves." - Love, Lust, Books
What Readers are Saying about Mafia Captive:
"If you've never read a Kitty Thomas novel, I think that Mafia Captive would be a great first book to try. Dip your toes into the dark erotica world that is Kitty Thomas" - Letitia
"If your a Kitty Thomas fan or a dark erotica fan at all you will love this book!" -Kellybear
"This would be an excellent read for anyone who is interested in exploring a captive-themed story with a smidge of darkness, but hasn't quite worked up the nerve to "go there." MAFIA CAPTIVE is definitively a "must read" for anyone who enjoys unique stories laced with BDSM elements, powerful characters and the slightly darker side of erotica." - Bookie Nookie
"Mafia Captive held me captive from page one through to the end. I could not put this book down. Kitty Thomas understands how to engage her audience and keep their attention." - Lina Sacher
"Kitty Thomas is well known for her dark, literary erotica but I think this novel shows a slight departure for her. She's definitely showing her softer, more romantic side and if you've feared reading her books before because the content scares you a little, then I think you should give this one a try." - Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews
"Kitty just keeps delivering dark erotica. Pain, pleasure, fear, control, mesh together to capture the reader's attention. True suspense of the erotic kind." - JMM
"As for Mafia Captive, I wasn't sure how I was going to like it. I had heard several people rumbling about how it was so different for Kitty. The main character, Faith, wasn't even kinky. Then I just found it amusing that so many people had just boxed Kitty into this kinky corner and rebelled when she wrote something different."... "And THAT is why this book is so great. It's not because Leo is into BDSM, because he is in a big way. It's not because he forces the lifestyle on this young girl, because he doesn't. As I'm sure you know, Kitty Thomas is Zoe Winters. And when Kitty is Zoe, she has a terrific voice and her stories grab you. But when she is Kitty, she grabs you and doesn't let go. She crosses the lines and flips the critics off from the other side. This story was complex. It was very emotional at times, sometimes even a bit funny. There are things that happen that will make you gasp and get angry at this person or that person. Sometimes you might feel like justice happened. And at others, you will fear for what's to come. And that is why I loved Mafia Captive." - Liz @ Fictional Candy
" Kitty weaves an incredible story and I love the rich cast of characters she creates in Mafia Captive. She is a very gifted storyteller and whether you love or hate Leo, you will love this very dark and very sexy BDSM-themed book. Another great and twisty story from the mind of Kitty Thomas." - Book Bellas
What Readers are Saying about Big Sky:
"Kitty Thomas writes amazing dark erotica, so what, you ask, did I learn about myself from reading her latest book?
I learned that I must be getting jaded and I am a sucker for a grieving man." -JillyP
"Preface to say that this is dark edgy erotica, not for those looking for pure romance. But if this is your genre, then Big SKy is a must read. Well-crafted story with complex characters. I am hooked on Kitty Thomas!" -K. Victoria Smith
"Big Sky was a good dark erotic story by Kitty Thomas and I think one of the darkest ones that she has written. I highly recommend Big Sky to all fans of dark erotica." -AsianCocoa
"Kitty writes fictional stories that are dark erotica, so going into this novel I knew what to expect. While this book definitely has some dark and twisted things happening in it that I don't personally agree with, I couldn't help but justify everything that happened. In a lot of ways, I felt that Luke really was saving Veronica and giving her a do-over. Only Kitty Thomas can take something so morally wrong and make it seem right." -KC Book Girl
"If you are a Kitty Thomas fan, this is a must-read. If you've never read Kitty Thomas before, and you think you can handle reading dark erotica, don't start here. Go read Comfort Food, and if you love it, come back and read Big Sky. It's perfect." Amazon Customer
"This is one of the strangest erotic novels I have ever read, and trust me, that is really saying something. I don't even know how to describe the book. I guess it's best described as a dark erotic novel, but that just doesn't seem quite enough." - Charles M Smith II
Lily’s fears drove her away from the man of her dreams. In fact, she ran all the way home to learn her mother had been diagnosed with cancer and needed her help. After two years of caring for her mother, they lost the fight and Lily was cast adrift to once again pick of the threads of her life.
Terrified she’d flee the instant things got too intense, Lily asks Madame Eve to help her set up a date with a Dom. If she can handle one night with a stranger, maybe she can return to Barry and beg him to take her back.

“Grace. That word that finally meant something again. Mercy. Favor. Good will.”

After seeing a therapist for months, the doctor makes her an offer she isn't yet smart enough to refuse: "Let me find you a good master."
Brian Sloan is a borderline sociopath with a dark and brutal past. Only taking his sadistic urges out on the women at a submissive training house allows him to sleep through the night.
