NOOSE:
Whores 
A smorgasbord of sweet butts, one for every taste. 

Noose has a sweet tooth that will not quit, and a clubwhore to suit his every need. 

Being a part of the Road Kill Motorcycle Club is not a hard choice for Noose. A former Navy SEAL and expert knotter, he's seen realtime choices - in circumstances most never do. 

It's killing road. Women and freedom are the benefits of being a percenter. 

Until Rose Christo comes along and slams the brakes on his outlaw existence. 

Murderers 

Rose Christo knows death. 

Murder stole her sister, and gave her a are that's not hers. 

Love does not eat in neat packages; It comes in the form of a five-year-old boy. Love is packaged in a man that tears out her heart with a brutal sexuality that strips Rose of her most sacred vow. 

Never count on a man. 

Never love 

Never.

When her sister's murderer comes calling, demanding his property, who does Rose trust? 

KNOT:
Torture

Rose has a job.To protect her nephew, Charlie. A hot motorcycle thug isn't enough of a reason to get in the way of that.

Except the one who saves her from a torture so vile, she doesn't know who she is anymore.

Drake is determined to take Charlie from her, and he'll play dirty to do it.

Noose is justas determined to protect her from the Road Kill's number one rival MC.

Can he do it when she denies his protection?

Rose will not end up like her sister Anna.

Dead.

Rose soon discovers there are worse things than death.

Circumstance
Noose's life has been turned upside down.

Rose Christo is more than she seems, and involved in way more than she should be.

When a certain Chaos Rider kidnaps her as a means of coercion, Noose finds he's willing to tie a knot especially for Diablo, aka Drake.

Not to kill - to warn.

But Noose wasn't put on this blue marble to warn men who threaten his property.

Even if the woman that's his property, doesn't know it.

ROSE:
Vengeance

Drake Corbin, aka Diablo, has plans for Rose Christo that reach far beyond getting his property back.

He wants another woman to abuse.

Rose is determined to save Charlie, but when the final verdict is read, her spirit is crushed by the outcome.

After two encounters with Drake, she knows she will not survive a third.

Has Rose misplaced her trust in Noose? Is he nothing more than the callous user of women he appears to be--or is he the very thing she needs to survive her life and maybe, find love....

Hope

Sean King, aka Noose, doesn't need a woman--he never has.

Then Rose Christo earns something no other woman has ever managed--his trust. Noose's careful facade begins to slip, and he must admit what she means to him:

More than property.

More than novelty tail.

More than anyone has ever meant to him before.

The woman he loves.

Is Noose ready to sacrifice everything to tie a knot so permanent, no one will recover? Road Kill, him - Rose?

Can she stand what he will have to do to keep her safe?

THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLING DEBUT PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER YOU CAN'T MISS!

The perfect marriage? Or the perfect lie?

“A hair-raising debut, both unsettling and addictive...A chilling thriller that will keep you reading long into the night.” —Mary Kubica, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Good Girl

“This is one readers won’t be able to put down.” —Booklist (starred review)

"A can’t-put-down psychological thriller.” —Library Journal (starred review)

“The sense of believably and terror that engulfs Behind Closed Doors doesn't waver.” —The Associated Press, picked up by The Washington Post

“This was one of the best and most terrifying psychological thrillers I have ever read.” —San Francisco Book Review


Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. He’s a dedicated attorney who has never lost a case; she is a flawless homemaker, a masterful gardener and cook, and dotes on her disabled younger sister. Though they are still newlyweds, they seem to have it all. You might not want to like them, but you do. You’re hopelessly charmed by the ease and comfort of their home, by the graciousness of the dinner parties they throw. You’d like to get to know Grace better.

But it’s difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are inseparable.

Some might call this true love. Others might wonder why Grace never answers the phone. Or why she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. Or why she never seems to take anything with her when she leaves the house, not even a pen. Or why there are such high-security metal shutters on all the downstairs windows.

Some might wonder what’s really going on once the dinner party is over, and the front door has closed.

From bestselling author B. A. Paris comes the gripping thriller and international phenomenon Behind Closed Doors.

When Faren sees what remains of her life coming together with a synchronicity she can only dream of, the unexpected happens with Jay—and she must play a razor's edge of deception once again. 

Can she tie this final loose end and receive the money from that aborted last dance before the countdown of debt has expired?

When its discovered the players on the chessboard have been closing in for a checkmate against Faren and Mick, Faren uses whatever's at hand to save the one she cares about the most. 

Will the gauntlet Faren rushes through put everything she cares about to the test? Does this final danger erase the seeds of the truth she's finally come to terms with—or will the larger threat irrevocably damage her most precious treasure?

Praise for VAC 1:
"... There is so much going on typical of this author/artists work which I undoubtedly LOVE!!!! But is still incredibly easy to follow and leaves you wanting more, and you know you will get more!!!! All up a really clever intro to the series with enough imagination and heart and sex appeal to want to read on with the next one... incredibly hot... I most definitely will be continuing on with this series..." - Erica Pillera

"... Tamara Rose Blodgett and Marata Eros are like the Doublemint Twins of Dark Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy! Two styles in one! Seriously, having read each style from TRB/ME, why they haven't combined forces before is beyond me. The tension, the dialogue and the characters scream to be noticed, while the plot comes to life and practically engulfed me completely. The attitude and dialogue of Tamara Rose Blodgett and the dark tension and bite of Marata Eros, a win-win for readers who like strong women and great storytelling! There is no doubt that this dynamic duo is a force to be reckoned with in the fantasy world!" - DiiTOP 500 REVIEWER

Blurb:
Narah Adrienne is a bounty enforcer in the near future. She runs the seedy side of her game, capturing criminals too dangerous for the local law enforcement. Using unorthodox methods, she finds herself in the crosshairs of the Magistrate for too many allowable kills for the quarter.

And her head hurts like hell.

Aeslin is part of an elite vampire squad of Turners. A rare sect of vampire scouts who possess the ability to find women with enough undead blood to be turned into full vampire. As the numbers of supernaturals dwindle, it is the hope of the Nobles that extinction can be a thing of the past with female hybrids.

In a race against time and common enemies, can Aeslin find the one female who is meant to be turned and also his parallel soul? Or will the fabled carrot the Nobles dangle turn out to be a lie perpetuated by desperation?

Vampire is 44+ pages/10,000 words, and is the first volume of episodic novelettes in the ALPHA CLAIM serial.
