Captured Beauty: A Dark Fairytale Retelling by Tay Mo’Nae

What they both learn is it takes a real beauty to fall for a beast.


Chosen by a Vampire: A Dark Paranormal Romance by Wynta Tyme

Dare was so deliciously otherworldly…

Tempo Bondeaux thought she led a normal life. She worked closely with children with autism, did Pilates, and had wonderful friends and family. It was the usual routine until the teacher in her class fell ill and in walked the substitute. He was deliciously otherworldly like the fantasy romances she read until he spoke to her telepathically. From that initial moment, her world was turned upside down. How did she find herself cuffed to his bed for pleasure and running away from danger?

After a two-year nap, I finally found my bride…

Dare lived in bliss for seventeen years before an enemy surfaced and took away what he loved most. He searched high and low until his mission brought him to a small elementary school in the inner city. Finding what was taken was easy. The hard part—making her fall in love with him and battling the two human men that desire her as well, but one of those human men isn’t like the other. In this dark romance, blood will be shed, magic will be thrown, and bondage sex is showcased like a jewelry display. Who will Tempo choose? The principal that eats her like a sundae, the police officer who pines after her, or Dare, the creature of the night that makes her perform like a bad girl?


Spark: A Sexy Holiday Short by Té Russ

She’s all about tradition.

He’s all about the future.

Now, they have to work together.

Despite their differences, neither can deny the spark.


Allison (LMAO Book 3) by Sabrina B. Scales

Four women.

Four stories.

One passion…

to make you laugh!

Hey, People, 

I’m Allison Jennette Jones, the ‘A’ in LMAO. 

Come and join me on my journey to the Edge Control Tour. It’s about to be a sold-out show! 

Don’t pile into those seats too fast, though, y’all. My story is full of more drama than the blogs can keep up with. If that’s your lane, then come on in and bring a glass of champagne for throwing. If it’s not, don’t say I didn’t warn you. There’s a protective plastic bag underneath your seat.

Being a boss in every way possible, I didn’t step onto the comedy scene for fortune or fame. I’d already accumulated both before my twenty-fifth birthday, and now, at the ripe old age of thirty, this new comedic endeavor was about something else. 

Something new. 

Something personal.

Something therapeutic. 

Not many people feel comfortable speaking on their fears, but we all have them, no matter how strong we appear. I had a fear of losing myself in all the things I’d accomplished. And even more, I feared losing myself to the people I let in. It was sometimes difficult to weed out the good from the bad. I struggled with that the most when it came to romantic relationships, especially with my on-again-off-again boyfriend, Mario, who didn’t need to ride my coattail for fame since his professional basketball career provided plenty of popularity. I questioned many things about the man who’d had my heart since we were kids, but I never once questioned his love for me. His choices were questionable, but his heart was always there, even when I caught him with a half-naked stripper on his lap.

Anyway, I know it seems extreme to seek therapy on stage when I could just as easily sit on the sofa and binge-watch episodes of Martin. But extreme is my middle name. Everyone who knows me knows it, and my connection to the art of making people laugh is so natural it almost feels like it was passed down genetically. Given my vague family history, it could very well have been. There’s only one way to find out how this goes, and you’re already here, so you might as well stay! 

Grab your tickets and enjoy this comedic exhibition of drama, hilarity, and maybe a few secrets.

Again, I’m Allison Jennette Jones, the ‘A’ in LMAO!


Sugar-Coated Kisses by Lady Marie

One night can change your life…

Masquerade night with Sugared and Spiced.

It’s the perfect excuse to step out of your comfort zone. At least that’s what Arthur’s friends keep telling him, but it’s a lot easier said than done. He’s always seen himself as a “traditional relationship” type of man so this is uncharted territory. He’s skeptical. Who wouldn’t be?

Enter Trinity. The moment they cross paths, it’s clear there’s no escaping each other’s orbit. A few flirty messages, a cherry flavored kiss, and a touch of sugar is all it takes for them to know that things will never be the same.

And one person can turn your world upside down.


Mega Man by Mel Dau

Megatron Loric Manfield is the definition of perfect imperfection. He knows who he is and whose he is. He not scared to love; he just knows that when it comes along, he wants it to be God sent. When the right woman comes along, he will fall in line to receive his favor.

Ruth Lindsay Gordon is saved, sheltered, and suffocated. Being a preacher’s kid is never easy and even harder when the preacher sometimes reverences himself more than the God he claims to serve. Desperately, she wants to be released from the hold that is her father, so she prays for God to send her Boaz.

They say be careful what you pray for. You just might get more than what was anticipated. What happens when instead of sending Boaz, God sends a Mega Man?
