"Maybe you haven't noticed, but every female in this school has a lady boner for you."
He attempted a stoic expression, but the intensity of his disgust shone through.
"They call it Morning Worship."
I stared at the wall before me, basking in his discomfort.
"To think, when the lights go out, all those dutiful prayer hands are petting the kitty in your honor."

"Time to count sheep, I guess."
I roll in the opposite direction of Wesley, features twisting into Kill Me Now.
I will never be cool.
"Does that work for you?"
I'm lying again. Being nervous is turning me into a liar.
"I mean, no. Have you ever tried it? What do you think about before you go to sleep?"
He falls quiet. I think he's trying to figure out what I'm really asking.
"It's like sheep, but Maybells.
A whole bunch of you, one after the other, skipping through a field."

Our life is the photograph that rich dimwits pay for at the theme park because their memories alone are inadequate.

His love is so like his cruel Catholic god's--the god who punishes you for your sins at the same time he bleeds to forgive them. Eternally tender and coldly just. 
American King

The mind isn't simply a dangerous place, it's the most dangerous place. All that's wrong, sinful, and evil starts in the mind. It's ironic how the part of the human body that controls everything is also the most out of control part of the body.

BOOK REVIEW: The Architect by Nikki Sloane

THE ARCHITECT is a steamy three-alarm inferno of hotness!

The Architect by Nikki Sloane

The third installment of the Nashville Neighborhood series is much more intense (and satisfying) than the two that came before it. While THE DOCTOR and THE POOL BOY are great, THE ARCHITECT is just... more

Clay Crandall is an architect, and he's not happy when a problem with his current project sends him out of town. Because his relationship with next-door neighbor Lilith is new and he's eager to make good on the designs he's planned for her, he proposes an unconventional idea to satisfy their needs until he returns from Jacksonville -- LONG DISTANCE PLAY.

And not your typical long-distance play either. Oh, no. Clay wants to watch and direct a friend to carry out his plans for Lilith in his stead.

"I asked Mr. E if he'd be interested in a temporary arrangement. He said yes."

I swallowed thickly.

"What kind of arrangement?"

"Until I'm back, he'll be me."


"I'll still control the scene, but it'll be remotely for now. He's agreed to fulfill the physical part for me. He's another way for us to play together."

Sign Me Up Gif

Of course, there are a few stipulations. I mean, Clay's no dummy. 

Mr. E and Lilith can only speak to Clay (and not with each other). There is to be no sharing of personal information, they can't see each other when Clay is not present -- virtually or otherwise -- and kissing on the mouth is strictly forbidden. As you might imagine, things don't quite play out the way Clay originally planned.


THE ARCHITECT is centered around a MFM relationship and features elements of BDSM (bondage and pain infliction, mostly). If BDSM is a trigger for you or not really your thing, this book is not for you.

For those of you that don't mind a little BDM (minus the sadism), you're good. Humiliation, degradation, and/or victims of abuse are NOT aspects of this story.

GENRE: Erotica; BDSM
POV: First Person (Lilith)

COVER REVEAL: Tempted by Ava Harrison

tempted by ava harrison

Cover Designer: Hang Le
Model: Joseph Cannata

Release Date: January 4, 2021

Unemployed. Check.
Zero prospects. Check.
An eviction notice in hand. Check.
Life in shambles? Check. Check. Check.

Desperate to avoid living on my sister's couch, I took a job in the one place I shouldn't.
That's where I first saw him.

Drew Lawson.
Elusive bad boy.
Owner of the hottest club in the city.
And apparently my new boss.

Temptation comes in many forms.
For me, it's the way he looks at me.
The way he feels.
He's my addiction.
My secret.

I know I should keep my distance.
I could lose everything--even myself.
But I can't.

And neither can he.

Meet Ava

COVER REVEAL: The Villain by LJ Shen

 "A love story with teeth and claws. I dare you not to fall in love with Cillian Fitzpatrick."
- Parker S. Huntington, USA Today Bestselling Author

The Villain by LJ Shen
Cover Designer: Letitia Hasser at RBA Designs
Model: George Alsford

The Villain, an all-new modern retelling of Hades and Persephone from USA Today and #1 Amazon bestselling author, L.J. Shen is coming December 17th, and I have the drop-dead sexy cover!

Cruel. Cold Blooded. Hades in a Brioni suit.
Cillian Fitzpatrick has been dubbed every wicked thing on planet earth.
To the media, he is The Villain.
To me, he is the man who (reluctantly) saved my life.
Now I need him to do me another, small solid.
Bail me out of the mess my husband got me into.
What's a hundred grand to one of the wealthiest men in America, anyway?
Only Cillian doesn't hand out free favors.
The price for the money, it turns out, is my freedom.
Now I'm the eldest Fitzpatrick brother's little toy.
To play, to mold, to break.
Too bad Cillian forgot one, tiny detail.
Persephone wasn't only the goddess of spring; she was also the queen of the death.
He thinks I'll buckle under the weight of his mind games.
He is about to find out the most lethal poison is also the sweetest.

COVER REVEAL - The Architect by Nikki Sloane


The Architect by Nikki Sloane
Nikki Sloane has revealed the cover for The Architect!
Releasing: January 26, 2021

On the surface, my new boyfriend is a stiff, buttoned-up architect. He plans every detail of his life while carefully maintaining the walls he's built around his heart. But when the biggest project of his career pulls him away, Clay's solution is both temporary and unconventional. It even comes with a name -- Travis.

This handsome stranger is sweet and thoughtful. He's only meant to be a stand-in, to fulfill my sexual needs under Clay's watchful direction, yet these two men couldn't be more different. The one thing they share? Well, I guess that would be me.

One gets off on my pain, the other on my pleasure, and it awakens a desire none of us knew existed. But it can't last.

Eventually I'll have to choose.

And it's going to destroy us all.
