*** GRAB the Prequel, ETHAN, to the BRIGHTEST KIND OF DARKNESS series for FREE! ***

Ethan Harris never thought monsters and darkness would consume his daily thoughts, but every night the same visions repeat in his dreams. He’s careful to project a semblance of normalcy, keeping the suffocating darkness locked inside. As much as he wishes he could focus on girls, sports, and cars like other guys, nothing distracts him from his own demons or shines through.

Until Nara Collins crosses his path. The blonde fascinates and intrigues him, giving him a measure of peace he’s never felt before.

When Ethan discovers there’s more to Nara than she allows others to see, that she might have a unique secret of her own, suddenly his world comes into focus.

Note: ETHAN is a novella PREQUEL to BRIGHTEST KIND OF DARKNESS. This story will give some of Ethan’s background and lead up until the day he and Nara talk for the first time. It is best read AFTER BRIGHTEST KIND OF DARKNESS.

“I’m virtually speechless when it comes to this novel. I have not found an author that I adore the writing style of this much since Jennifer L. Armentrout. The world that this author created was amazing.” - Brittany's Book Reviews

Eighteen year old Myla Lewis is a girl who loves two things: kicking ass and kicking ass. She’s not your every day quasi-demon, part-demon and part-human, girl. For the past five years, Myla has lived for the days she gets to fight in Purgatory’s arena. When souls want a trial by combat for their right to enter Heaven or Hell, they go up against her, and she hasn’t lost a battle yet.

But as she starts her senior year at Purgatory High, the arena fights aren’t enough to keep her spirits up anymore. When the demons start to act weird, even for demons, and the King of the Demons, Armageddon, shows up at Myla’s school, she knows that things are changing and it’s not looking good for the quasi-demons.

Myla starts to question everything, and doesn’t like the answers she finds.

What happened seventeen years ago that turned the quasi-demons into slave labor? Why was her mom always so sad? And why won’t anyone tell her who her father is? Things heat up when Myla meets Lincoln, the High Prince of the Thrax, a super sexy part-human and part-angel demon hunter. But what’s a quasi-demon girl to do when she falls for a demon hunter? It’s a good thing that Myla’s not afraid of breaking a few rules. With a love worth fighting for, Myla’s going to shake up Purgatory.

"Wow, I loved this novel."- Koeur's Book Reviews

Ideal for readers who enjoy kick-ass chicks, gamma guys, paranormal romance, urban fantasy and happily ever afters.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling series

After burying herself in work to keep from pining for the sexy Mister Black, Talia takes a much-needed vacation. When her holiday turns deadly, she'll have to use all her investigative skills to discover the killer before she's his next victim. If only she had someone like Mister Black to back her up... 

Mister Black swept in and out of my life like a tornado, leaving me twisted up and forever changed in his wake.

And now that my life is finally back on track, I need to move on, despite the many reminders of our time together.

But our pasts are only as far away as the shadows we hide behind, and sometimes those shadows grow darker, converging on the present in the most insidious way.

He is Black: a stealthy hunter and rainbow master.

I am Red: a truth seeker and desire keeper.

Together we are obsession. Passionate colors destined to be drawn together.

DEAR READERS: SCARLETT RED is part two in Sebastian and Talia’s epic love story and is novel length, as are the rest of the books in the series.

Be sure to read books 4-5, since you’ll also get to visit with Sebastian and Talia as they play key roles in Cass and Calder’s story before you dive into book 6, BLACK PLATINUM, an all new stand alone Sebastian and Talia passionate adventure. Another Sebastian and Talia story, book 7, REDDEST BLACK follows, before I swing back to a Cass and Calder stand alone story in book 8, BLOOD ROSE, coming June 2018. You’ve got lots of enjoyable reading ahead of you!

How far would you go to be with the man who stole your heart but doesn't know your real name?

GOLD SHIMMER is the first book in Cass and Calder's epic love story in the Black Shadows duet. STEEL RUSH is the explosive conclusion to their love story and is now available. You don't have to read books 1-3 in the IN THE SHADOWS series to enjoy GOLD SHIMMER and STEEL RUSH.

I never thought that my plan to crash a masked party to exact a bit of revenge would fall apart so easily. Then again, I also didn't plan on running into a wall of sharp wit and steely determination named Calder while pretending to be someone else. The captivating Navy SEAL might've called me by Celeste's name, but he refused to let me hide my true self from him. His special brand of honest, seductive charm was impossible to resist. He was confident and demanding...and everything I wanted. But the deeper I fell, the higher the stakes rose while playing a role. So I held onto our intense connection for as long as I could, knowing that he would never know me as Cass. 

When an unexpected turn of events gives me a second chance to see Calder again, I take it. Going undercover as Celeste once more, I'm plunged into a world of high-power wealth and privilege that's far more dangerous than I could've imagined. Everyone has an agenda, and lives are moved around like chess pieces. But for the one man who gave me the courage to live my life for me again, I'd do just about anything. Even become someone else.

DEAR READERS: GOLD SHIMMER is the first book in the BLACK SHADOWS duet, Cass and Calder's happy-ever-after story.

New York Times, USA Today, and international bestselling set...

From the Hamptons to Martha’s Vineyard to Manhattan, Talia and Sebastian embark on an intense love affair that forces them to deal with their pasts as they face down old and current enemies. 

Falling in love has never been more tempestuous and dangerous, but ultimately…also deeply satisfying.

The IN THE SHADOWS: A Billionaire SEAL Story first three books are all together in this box set! This is an 800 print page bundle that features books 1-3, Sebastian and Talia's story: MISTER BLACK, SCARLETT RED, and BLACKEST RED.


MISTER BLACK, Book One: 

We all have someone who crossed our path and fundamentally changed us. That one person who blew through our lives, their presence forever stamped on our psyche. They linger in our thoughts, in our hearts, and in the decisions we make. A soul crusher or a dream maker, depending on the perspective.

 My person is Mister Black.

I didn't know him by that name when I first met him.

I didn't know him at all, but the impression he left behind was just as powerful as the name I call him today.

He is Black: a deadly enforcer and masterful seducer.

I am Red: a justice bleeder and willing participant.

Together we are passion. Colors colliding through each other's lives.

When our secrets converge in a passionate encounter, stepping out of the shadows just might be worth the risk.


SCARLETT RED Book Two:

Mister Black swept in and out of my life like a tornado, leaving me twisted up and forever changed in his wake.

And now that my life is finally back on track, I need to move on, despite the many reminders of our time together.

But our pasts are only as far away as the shadows we hide behind, and sometimes those shadows grow darker, converging on the present in the most insidious way.

He is Black: a stealthy hunter and rainbow master.

I am Red: a truth seeker and desire keeper.

Together we are obsession. Passionate colors destined to be drawn together.


BLACKEST RED Book Three: 

No matter how hard I've tried to let go of Mister Black, the memories of us together torture me. They're an unforgettable reminder of a life I can't have for many reasons.

Burying myself in work mostly keeps thoughts of him to a screaming minimum, until he's thrust into my life under circumstances beyond my control. Despite my need for his protection, this time I'm not sure if I'm strong enough to survive with my heart intact.

He is Black: a fierce protector and irresistible charmer.

I am Red: a trouble magnet and rainbow weaver.

Together we ignite. Explosive colors merging at the hottest melting point.

In an effort to ignore his own painful history, Calder challenges a corrupt, underground organization, but his mission gets sidelined when Cass's life becomes endangered.

Passion, betrayal, and heartache collide in an emotionally charged and dangerous chain of events that could unravel everything Sebastian and Talia have worked to overcome.

While looking forward to a bright future with the upcoming birth of their child, and navigating the often humorous and overbearingly protective aspects of approaching parenthood, Mister Black and Little Red manage to strengthen their passionate connection.

But connections can be severed in the most insidious ways, and the power couple must learn to trust each other’s instincts if they hope to uncover the threat determined to destroy their family.

Author’s Note: REDDEST BLACK can be read as a standalone story, but for the richest reading experience you can always start with the first book, MISTER BLACK, to see how Sebastian and Talia’s epic love story began.
