Soon to be a major motion picture from Lionsgate starring Anna Kendrick, Blake Lively and Henry Golding, and directed by Paul Feig

"Riveting and brilliantly structured, A Simple Favor is an edge-of-your seat domestic thriller about a missing wife and mother that relies on a rotating cast of unreliable narrators to ingeniously examine the cost of competitive mom-friends, the toll of ordinary marital discontent and the fallacy of the picture-perfect, suburban family."—Kimberly McCreight, New York Times bestselling author

She’s your best friend.

She knows all your secrets.

That’s why she’s so dangerous.

A single mother's life is turned upside down when her best friend vanishes in this chilling debut thriller in the vein of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train.

It starts with a simple favor—an ordinary kindness mothers do for one another. When her best friend, Emily, asks Stephanie to pick up her son Nicky after school, she happily says yes. Nicky and her son, Miles, are classmates and best friends, and the five-year-olds love being together—just like she and Emily. A widow and stay-at-home mommy blogger living in woodsy suburban Connecticut, Stephanie was lonely until she met Emily, a sophisticated PR executive whose job in Manhattan demands so much of her time.

But Emily doesn’t come back. She doesn’t answer calls or return texts. Stephanie knows something is terribly wrong—Emily would never leave Nicky, no matter what the police say. Terrified, she reaches out to her blog readers for help. She also reaches out to Emily’s husband, the handsome, reticent Sean, offering emotional support. It’s the least she can do for her best friend. Then, she and Sean receive shocking news. Emily is dead. The nightmare of her disappearance is over.

Or is it? Because soon, Stephanie will begin to see that nothing—not friendship, love, or even an ordinary favor—is as simple as it seems.

A Simple Favor is a remarkable tale of psychological suspense—a clever and twisting free-fall of a ride filled with betrayals and reversals, twists and turns, secrets and revelations, love and loyalty, murder and revenge. Darcey Bell masterfully ratchets up the tension in a taut, unsettling, and completely absorbing story that holds you in its grip until the final page.

An Addiction.

Kiki is desperate to stop the twisted relationship she shares with Chet Sinclair, but finds that she can't. He is too vital, too potent... like a magnet, she cleaves to him. Desperate to break the pattern, she goes into hiding to escape her feelings and a ghost from her past comes back to haunt her.

The Consumption.

Needy and unnerved, Kiki turns to the one person that offered her solace from the past. Can Damon Axton erase what's begun? Will he be the one to break the cycle of sexual intensity and obsession that Chet uses to imprison her, body and soul?

A Recompense of Love.

When Sinclair discovers where Kiki is hiding, their passion explodes once again. Can either admit their true feelings for each other? Or will sensual enslavement destroy their dark love before it has begun?

Praise for  SNARE:
"... I am  in love with this series! The bits of  humor make you laugh out loud,  The love expressed makes your heart beat just a bit faster, And the danger in the storyline is such an  adrenaline rush. Totally worth my  5 star  rating ..! " -  Tonya Clark Kelly

" ... I  love reading this book but then I love reading Marata Eros  It's  exciting  and it's  dirty but  in all the right ways.  It will have you clamoring to get your books so that you can finish it. Then went to make you read more by Marata Eros ..! "- Jayne Chase

" ... This is the first time I have read any books from this author. Motorcycle gangs just did not interest me, but the book description and special price through BookBub caught my attention and I found a fast paced, suspenseful story that changed my mind about this literature genre.... These men in the club are ultra Alpha , they can take a licking and keep on ticking, especially when their loved ones are in danger... "- Nancy

BLURB:
A secret baby A stepbrother that can not forget her.

Forbidden Love 

Some women are untouchable. Like a stepsister who's alive because of his sacrifice. 

Snare is part of the Road Kill MC, and as a sergeant at arms, he takes his role as protector seriously. 

I have always. 

Snare does not discuss the scar that almost took his eye or the ultimate protection he provided for the only woman he's ever loved. 

The sweet butts provide the distraction he needs and the emotional disconnect he craves. 

Snare is married to the club. I do not need a woman who disappears without a trace. 

Guilt

Sarah tries to think of Snare. It was one night. And I have paid for it - they both did. 

The nightmares do not even interrupt her dreams. Much 

Except for the secret she kept of the child they had together, life could not be more perfect. 

Sarah knows that Snare is not the type of man to toy with - or lie to. But when her abuser took things too far, Sarah could not allow Snare to protect her any longer. She fled and has not seen her stepbrother since. 

The price for their love was more than fists and rage. 

It was flesh and blood. 

Can Sarah hide the truth from the one man who protected her with his own life? Will Snare deny his true feelings because of scars that run more than skin deep? 

Snare is a full-length, standalone romantic suspense novel with hot sex, no cheating, strong language, an HEA ending and NO CLIFFHANGERS. Contains disturbing themes that might be uncomfortable for some. Perfect for fans of Joanna Wylde, and who also like the dark fare of Pepper Winters.
For fans of The Black Dagger Brotherhood, 50 Shades, and Twilight, comes a controversial adult tale of alpha vampire warriors who do not sparkle, claiming what is theirs for the survival of their species.

BLURB:
Dara is a hot college professor who has more than teaching English Lit on her mind. When her cougar instincts come on line, a few male students teach her a lesson instead.

Excerpt :
Her head was bowed as she leaned over her desk, grabbing papers, organizing, recycling others and stacking some to put in her briefcase...when a large hand came down on the stack in front of her.

She looked up and it was Ryan. She liked to think of him as the ringleader...the one that always had a wisecrack when she pressed him for an answer, a legitimate answer. She couldn't nail him on outright rudeness and inappropriate behavior. Oh-no, not him, he rode that fine line between what he knew would get him nailed and what would get him noticed.

Dara was noticing.

She straightened, arching her back slightly and he looked at the lacy cami she wore under her low cut top. A lock of hair fell forward and she moved to put it behind her ear and he touched the strand, fingering it, then gently put it behind her ear.

Dara stepped away from the intimate touch, "Not-appropriate, Ryan."

Ryan turned to the rest of the guys standing there and said, "Hit the lock."

Her heart sped, she belatedly realized that this was her last class and all the rest of her students had left soundlessly through the solid wood door, thoughts of the weekend stretched before them.

"Don't touch that," she said in a breathy voice.

Kevin, a six-foot three, muscular football scholarship student ignored her, turning the dead bolt lock and Dara jumped as it snapped into place.

Coming to her senses, she rounded the desk, her heels clicking on the hard floor, dimly realizing that Jason was systematically closing all the blinds on the windows which faced the outside...

Zoe Scott finds herself in a sexual slump after the fun at University President Taylor's party this last summer. Zoe is accustomed to being the schemer of her and Dara's sexcapades and needs another fix. 

Now that she has a vanilla firefighter boyfriend, she yearns for something more.

Something Darrell can not provide.

Or can he?

EXCERPT:
Dara knew how it would go. And with Zoe involved, though she was not absolutely certain - it should go their way. So Dara just smiled and leaned closer, allowing her breasts to push against Darrell's muscular chest.

"And Zoe will enjoy sharing with you," she murmured and had the satisfaction of watching his brows pick up in surprise.

"Well you're full of surprises, Professor Nichols," he said, those dark eyes searching hers, hoping for clues. Her cool eyes gazed back, revealing nothing. The blessing of experience.

"You have no idea," Dara replied and he let her hand fall, his eyes taking on that look of dark anticipation where ownership and surety had been moments before.

"I'm getting that."

Zoe walked through the door and saw the two of them, her eyes assessing, missing nothing. Stupid she isn't, Dara thought. It made her wet just thinking about Zoe's form of punishment. What she'd do to Dara's body when she found how she'd conned her.

Synopses:
TT1:
Twenty-two year old Faren Mitchell hears the two words that change her abbreviated life forever. They're so final Faren decides she has nothing to lose by seizing every remaining moment of what life has to offer.

Until Faren collides with a motorcycle ridden by billionaire Jared McKenna.

Even the dark secret of her past and catharsis as a physical therapist can not save Faren from the sexual spiral that waits for her in the arms of a man who commits to no one. When circumstances force her to get a second job as an exotic dancer, Faren never imagines how close that choice will bring her to the brink of a new reality she is unequipped to handle.

TT2:
Faren Mitchell keeps the secret of his second job from the one man who could see her through some of the darkest moments of her life. She does not want Jared "Mick" McKenna for the billions he's amassed, but for the one thing she's never given any man: her innocence.

Mick's guilt over the injury I inflicted fuels the beginnings of something more; a sexual one of each other that neither were anticipating. When Faren's actions do not match her words, Mick suspicions are raised. His feelings turn to ones of protection after Faren is mugged and he can not reconcile his desire for her with the reality they now find themselves in.

As Faren's bucket list grows, so the danger that surrounds the choices she's made. Can she take what she needs from Mick and also secure her mother's life? Or will the truth have you weaved between the lies doom them both?

TT3:
Faren collapses, narrowly escaping discovery upon hearing traumatic news delivered by Thorn. When Thorn becomes her uneasy accomplice in the deception of Mick, Faren decides she needs to clean up with the truth. Shelving her pride might be the last thing she wants to do, but as facts and actions continue to contradict one another, her hands become tied in the lies she creates to survive.

Faren only needs one last lap dance to erase the final debt that hangs over her mother's head like a cloud of doom. But when Ronnie Bunce circles closer to Faren and threatens the last sanctuary she possesses, circumstances unravel to reveal lies that run deeper than she knew.

Can Faren and Mick consummate their passion before her deceit is discovered? Or will the last dance be the ultimate loss?
