The Midnight Society Series!
by: Author Logan Patricks
Whoever said money couldn’t buy happiness has never starved a day in their lives.
My name is Aria Valencia, a third year classical music student at the university, and I was down to my last dollar. Some nights, I seriously considered working at the rippers just to make ends meet, but the thought of my dad’s spirit–God rest his soul–scowling at me while I danced up on some drooling degenerate was enough to turn me off the idea completely.
And then one night, chance came knocking on my door under the guise of the Midnight Society, a secret cabal comprised of the most wealthy and influential souls this side of the Universe. Their leader was a man named Shadow, who was equally enigmatic as he was gorgeous and, for some mystifying reason, had his dark brooding eyes focused on me.
Seduced by the promises of fame and fortune in exchange for a seemingly innocent request, I soon found myself drawn into a provocative world filled with both vast riches and unending lies and it didn’t take long for me to realize what being a part of the Midnight Society actually entailed: shiny things, sensual romance, and dead bodies.
Falling in love with Shadow came with a terrible price, one that I wasn’t willing to pay. There’s a dark side to every love story, and this one was mine.
On sale @ 80% off: From $4.99 to $0.99
Book Two: Penumbra
In one night, I lost everything: my hopes and dreams, my best friend, and Shadow’s heart. He told me he loved me, but it was just a lie.
The Midnight Society has fallen, reduced to ashes by a monster; someone whom we all once trusted. The betrayal has shattered our lives forever and Shadow, Lord of the Midnight Society, finds himself at a crossroad.
One road leads him further down the path of vengeance, filled with unending violence and dead bodies. The other road leads to me. However, our path to happiness is paved with broken glass and razorblades, and at some point, one of us is going to fall.
Welcome to the world of the Midnight Society.
On sale @ 80% off: From $4.99 to $0.99
As well Book 3 of the Midnight Society Series will go on sale April 23rd.
Book 3 – Revenant
With power comes the promise of blood. With friendships comes the promise of betrayal. With love comes the promise of tragedy.
The Midnight Society keeps no promises.
Shadow, the Lord of the Midnight Society–a once powerful and world-ruling organization–is a man with many burdens.
He’s losing a war with the Revenants, whose psychotic leader murdered his parents and was someone he once trusted. His best friend, Lincoln Richards–whose quick wit, charms, and loyalty are outweighed only by his sexual appetite–is a prisoner of the Revenants, and possibly dead. Meanwhile, the whispers of a traitor within his organization has Shadow constantly looking over his shoulder.

I’m a stay-at-home mom with four youngchildren and one extremely supportive husband. We’ve been married for over ten years and reside in Metro Detroit, Michigan.
I’ve dreamed of writing romance novels since I was little. After having baby #4, who may or may not have been fathered by Christian Grey, I decided it was time to pursue my dreams.
When I’m not running to various appointments, enjoying time with my friends and my family, dating my husband, or avoiding cleaning my house, I’m writing!
I love music and believe that books and music can’t exist without the other. My goal is for you to read more than a good book, but for you to have an experience!

Mercy~A Dark Erotica
As a sadomasochist, Sade just wants to get and give pain in manageable and somewhat legal doses.
All Mercy wants is to walk in her father’s footstep–a man who sacrificed everything to save her from a life of abuse and suffering. When Mercy finds an envelope on her doorstep leading her to
Sade, the result is a collision of pain and mercy. For Sade, Mercy’s kindness is dessert for his sadism, and her strength has his masochism hot and begging. Exploiting both for his own pleasure is his plan until he realizes that Mercy’s got her own game. And playing it requires something he’s never had.
“The alley, Mercy.”
“Already told you, Sade.”
“Are you being difficult because you want me to see you naked and wide open? You want me to make you talk? Make you scream?”
He waited in the silence, watching her breaths slow. “I was running from a man. And ended up there. And saved your life! Oh, wait. No, I guess I didn’t, I guess I ruined a business deal you had with death?”
“I am telling you,” she said emphatic.
He leaned forward and grabbed the front of her panties and cut them along both sides and tossed them to the floor. “And I told you not to answer me with the same shit. I don’t get it Mercy. Why not just tell me how you know me and why you were there that night?”
“I did and you won’t believe me!”
“One more time. Next I help you open up a little more.”
“Look! I panicked. I ran. I saw you, I saved you, why am I not getting a reward or something? For good intentions at least!”
He stared at her incredulous. “Jesus,” he muttered into the air above as he got up and fetched the rubber restraints.
“I’m telling you the truth!”
“If that’s the truth, I feel so fucking sorry for you. It’s just too unbelievable.” He cut the tie on her ankle, and her legs suddenly clamped around his neck and slammed his face onto the bed-table in a tight choke hold.
“Ffffuck,” he growled, reaching with his left hand and pressing her chest. Her pussy almost in tongue touching distance, he grunted in pain and excitement as she choked him harder with solid muscle, screaming with her effort. Her strength was exhilarating. Sade’s struggled for purchase with his right hand, anything that would give him leverage. But if he made the wrong move, that pressure on his neck would become lethal. He knew that move she was applying all too well.
Sade slid his left hand down her stomach and onto her pussy. She squeezed his neck harder and he strained with a roar before shoving his thumb inside her. She gasped and her pussy gripped him while he worked his other hand under her leg, seeking out her sciatic nerve. She struggled and squirmed to maintain her hold, the movement serving as anice finger job for her and judging by the sounds she made, she didn’t get those very often. Sade finally found his target and dug hard. She screamed and he thrust his thumb deeper inside her, gaining that give in her leg lock.
He finally broke free and scrambled onto the bed, pressing his knees into her open thighs.
“Mercy, Mercy,” he whispered, the smell of her sex everywhere now. She’d gone and done it. Pushed too many wrong buttons. His sadism roared through his blood, begging to take all control. She was back to looking away from him, winded. “I can only assume you wanted that. I do love the fuck out of giving pain and receiving, but only the consenting kind. And that… baby… was very close to begging.”
Hello, Lucian here. I’m a husband, author, and Christian who loves writing tales—paranormal erotic romance, contemporary erotic romance, fantasy romance and dark erotica– about men who honor, cherish, and protect the women they love. Also stories that are real enough to form a sort of how-to bridge for the readers, teaching them “how to” add heat and passion to their marriages and relationships; teach them how to build life-long commitments–like I have with my own beautiful wife–and build strong families; all of which serve as a healthy foundation in society.
I think there are many men like myself, and I hope my writing will be a map for them. A map for women as well, to teach them how to bring out the strength that exists within the men they call boyfriend or husband. Teach them how to dance out their fairytale romance in a world that isn’t kind to the happily ever afters we all hope to achieve.
You know, when I was younger, I submitted to my inner reckless and tireless desires, but when I gave myself to God and conformed my will to His, the transformation made me into what I am today. A man that believes and endorses Forever Love. Something we could stand a lot more of in our times, don’t you think?
Lucian has written in several genres over the past year, so there is something for everyone. You can find all his work including; the Dom Wars Series, White Knight Dom Academy Series, Ruin Series and the Arks of Octava Series on his Amazon Author Page.

Bethany Shaw Novels
Release Date March 18, 2014
Astrid loves her new life in Tuscany. She is free from the restrictive boundaries of pack life and able to make her own choices. When her alpha’s brother moves into the flat next to hers, it sets a series of events into place that will change her life forever. Should she flee or face her enemy?
Kendrick can’t believe it when he runs into Astrid in Tuscany. The fiery wolf has always held a special place in his heart. Can he prove to her that he’s different than his brother? Or will he lose her forever?
Astrid sprinted through her house like a mad woman. She was running late, of course, when wasn’t she running late? She overslept all the time. It was the insomnia. Wolves were nocturnal and no matter how much her human half wanted to go to bed, the animal within almost always refused. Hence why she was running late for the third day in a row.
Frazzled, she pulled her long hair up into a messy bun. Satisfied she no longer looked like she’d just rolled out of bed, she pulled on her cardigan. Grabbing her car keys, she rushed out the door. Her boss was nice and not too strict, but she still liked to be on time. The quaint little café she worked at was a tourist hot spot, and she met all sorts of interesting people. By no means was it a glamorous job, but it paid the bills and she enjoyed it.
Rushing out to her car, she fumbled through her keys for the unlock button. She was so caught up that she didn’t see the approaching man until it was too late. Astrid ducked to the right, but not fast enough. Her chest collided with something solid. The breath whooshed out of her as she connected against a firm hard torso. Her car keys flew out of her hands falling a few feet away on the sidewalk. “I’m so sorry,” she gasped as she bent down to retrieve her keys.
“My apologies too. It’s not every day I get the pleasure of running into such a…” he trailed off as she stood up and their gazes met.
“Oh my God,” Astrid muttered as she stared into Kendrick Johnson’s brown eyes. Horror filled her as a million questions raced through her mind. The most important one being, what the hell was he doing here? While Kendrick had never personally done anything to her, it was his brother she was running from.
“This is an interesting development,” Kendrick smirked at her. He winked at her. “Oh and most people call me Kendrick, but I could be your God.”
“What are you doing here?” Astrid glared. Why was he here? At her flat? It couldn’t be a coincidence could it? Of course not. He was here on his brother’s behalf. Here to bring her back kicking and screaming to Killian. No. That didn’t seem right. Kendrick and Killian weren’t exactly close. Or they hadn’t been when she’d left. Had something changed? If memory served, Kendrick wasn’t too popular with anyone in his family. Maybe her cover wasn’t blown after all. She could only hope.
“Well as a matter of fact I am staying in my flat,” Kendrick said indicating her absent neighbors home.
“That is yours?” she stammered as she stared up at the large flat. Impossible. How could she have been living next to Killian’s brother and not have known it?
“It is,” Kendrick beamed. His amber eyes danced with mirth. He’s enjoying this. “It looks like you and I are going to be neighbors. This little trip is getting better by the minute,” he continued excitedly.
“Well this is just perfect. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m running late for work,” Astrid flustered, glaring at him for a long moment before darting towards her little blue car.
“I suppose I’ll be seeing you around,” Kendrick called after her.
“I’d really prefer if we didn’t,” Astrid hollered back over her shoulder. She climbed into her car and quickly locked the doors. Jamming her key into the ignition, she shifted into drive, and mashed her foot down on the accelerator. What was she going to do now? Was Kendrick here for her? Or did he have his own agenda? Damn it, she was just starting to like Tuscany too.
She chanced a glance in her rearview mirror. No one was there. Gripping the wheel tighter, she took in her surroundings. Everything appeared to be normal. Maybe running into Kendrick was a freak occurrence. Maybe she didn’t have to leave. Astrid turned down the road to work. The first thing she saw out of the ordinary, she was hightailing it out of Tuscany.
Read the Reviews
Little did she know the brother was also on the run. After saving her life she comes to believe he may not be the enemy after all.
They fall in love and live HEA.
I loved it perfect for a quick cold winter afternoon read. I loved it.
I am happily married to my husband of almost nine years and have two wonderful children.
I have always loved reading and writing and am thrilled to have published my first novel.
Paranormal romance is my go to genre and the genre I prefer to write in. I love the unique feel of creating an entirely different world and implementing it into the human verse.

The Eagle Elite Series
by: Rachel Van Dyken
When I won the annual Eagle Elite College Scholarship lottery, I was thrilled. After all, my grandma had just died and I wanted to take care of my aging grandpa — he couldn’t be a farmer in Wyoming forever. And graduating from Eagle Elite meant opportunity.
But I wasn’t counting on meeting Nixon.
Nor was I counting on the rules of the Elect.
1. Do not touch The Elect.
2. Do not look at The Elect.
3. Do not speak to The Elect.
And worst of all? Don’t discover the secret they hide, because in the end, you may just realize… it’s about you.
Rachel Van Dyken is the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today Bestselling author of regency and contemporary romances. When she’s not writing you can find her drinking coffee at Starbucks and plotting her next book while watching The Bachelor.
She keeps her home in Idaho with her Husband and their snoring Boxer, Sir Winston Churchill. She loves to hear from readers!

4 roses – mafia romance – secret love
I clearly was not prepared for an intense modern day type of Romeo and Juliet secret romance. Totally caught off guard and glued to the plot as it thickened with suspenseful characters full of snotty mean girls and dangerous bad boys. Yet through it all I fell for some swoon worthy alpha male heroes who would give their lives to protect their family and friends. Honor bound and sworn to secrecy the Elite are a possessive clique who will ensure the safety of their kin.
“Hurt is everywhere; as humans we practically drown in its essence, yet we all pretend like it doesn’t exist.” ~Trace Rooks~
4 secret forbidden hearts – couples ‘bound’ by love
Clever secrets are being revealed as this “familia” comes together to protect and cherish their own kind. Pasts are remembered, feelings are shaped and this couple is finally portraying their true feelings for each other even at the high cost of the safety and recognition of their Mafia Families.
“Sometimes… it’s the emotional wounds that hurt the most. Cuts heal, bruises fade – but broken hearts? They carry scars for a lifetime.” ~Trace Alfero~
“I need you like I need my heart to pump blood through my body, like I need air to breathe, like we need gravity. You are my gravity. Being with you makes me feel centered and whole.” ~Nixon Abandonato~
4 emotional sexy lips – young love
As this college couple explore their secret hidden romance, intense feelings arise and emotions pour from their souls as they fight to control their attraction for each other. When the past slowly reveals these two loving souls their hunger grows and their bodies betray themselves. Nixon has some extremely hot eager kisses he lays on his leading lady. Trace cannot get enough of her main man’s possessive embraces and protective arms.
“Why did he have to be so beautiful? Why did his touch make me want to sell my soul?” ~Trace~
“I would have kissed you harder, fought for you more, stolen you away, taken your virtue, made myself so permanently etched on your person that every time you took a breath it was my scent that was permeating the air.” ~Nixon~
All in all I cannot get enough of this high powered alpha male mafia style romance and I’m about to explore the secondary characters that have me enthralled with all the suspense, thrills, romance, and secretive espionage this Author has for me!
Thank you Rachel Van Dyken!
