Jesse James has dedicated her life to helping shifter women who’ve been trafficked and abused. She never imagined becoming one of them. Kidnapped and drugged, the clouded leopard shifter finds herself spirited away to a mountain ranch that deals in more than horses. With little hope of escape, she fears she’s destined for the sex slave trade.
When news reaches the Hell’s Fury MC’s Las Vegas Chapter about a missing woman, Chaos and Wraith volunteer to help search. But things take an unfortunate turn, and they end up as prisoners, too. Trapped in a nightmare, they not only discover their fated mate but find themselves auctioned off to the highest bidder with her.
Expecting to fight their way out, the three quickly learn that the ranch has a darker, even more insidious side. Thrown together, Jesse, Chaos, and Wraith must work as a team if they hope to get out alive.
The race is on, and the clock is ticking. Will they be able to claim the woman who’s meant for them, or will they die trying?

The Wedding is a continuation of Finding Melody. We rejoin Melodie now that she’s got her ‘office guy’ and we follow them through another chapter of their life together.
You’d think now that they’re together it’d be plain sailing for them, you’d be wrong.
Melodie is a loveable, quirky, sassy little firecracker. Isaacs is her nerdy office guy. In some ways they seem like polar opposites, but they do say that opposites attract.
Whilst Melodie seems to be all sass and confidence, she has to deal with her own inner voice; just like we all do. Not only that Melodie has to deal with her future mother in law too, not an easy feat.
With Christmas fast approaching, knowing they’re spending it with Issac’s family, Melodie tries to hunt down the perfect presents to help win over her potential mother-in-law. The world, however, had other plans. Melodie and Issac end up have to travel to his parents separately, Melodie going up ahead of Issac. That’s when things begin to go wrong.
By the time Issac arrives his mother has come up with the ‘perfect’ plan to get between the two of them. Melodie after reaching breaking point flees back to her father’s home to try to understand and accept her fate.
Is this the end for Melodie and Issac?? I guess you’ll have to read it for yourself and see!!
For a book entitled ‘The Wedding’ you’d assume that it’s all romance, hearts, flowers and happiness; for some authors this would be right; for this particular author: no. Why write all hearts and flowers when you can grab a big stick and stir in a whole heap of emotional turmoil to spice things up! Bravo Laura, bravo!
This book is mainly written from Melodie’s POV, but it also does have some chapters that are written from the POV of Melodie’s Mother-In-Law to be, this offers a whole new perspective to this incredible story.
Laura’s writing style is a compelling, cleverly thought-out web of love, lust, emotion, lies and sass. Laura gives you all the details, all the emotion that you need to be drawn into Melodie’s world and feeling as though you are a part of her life and part of every event that takes place.
This was an incredible follow up to Finding Melodie. I loved every page and I would highly recommend these book to anyone looking for a rom-com feel good read.
Three crowns wrapped up in sin and death. Only time will tell who’s left.
Two seek to use her for their wicked game.
The third wishes to lay a claim.
Destruction will follow in her wake. Chaos will reign as the dreamer awakes.

Welcome to Ceasefire, a dark twisted world of boundless love and bitter betrayal. A place where bonds are forged through blood, magic and mayhem.
Demons, Assassins, Angels and fallen Gods are only the tip in a universe that isn’t always black and white.
This series is good. Each book flows seamlessly from the one before it and just keeps getting better.
Obsidian Songbird is the story of Cassandra, Hades and Zeus. Zeus has captured Cassandra for her visions, but Cassandra is as stubborn as ever and refuses to give in to Zeus. Every time she refuses Zeus punishes Cassandra; he punishes her in some very sick, twisted and horrifically cruel ways.
Hades, Lucifer, Mavi and a few others are all on the hunt for Cassandra trying to find her and save her from Zeus, as well as putting an end to Zeus in the process.
Obsidian Songbird is a well written and intricately woven web of a story. It ensnares you from the very beginning and draws you further in with every page. The action is paced well and described in such a way that it is easy to picture in your mind and to feel immersed in it.
The characters are like friends you’ve known for years, they keep you hooked in their lives and make you feel as though you are alongside them every step of the way and experiencing everything for yourself.
The emotions that the characters feel are almost palpable, they are certainly realistic to the things that they go through. My heart did break for Cassandra! What she endures at the hands of Zeus is shocking! I did wonder just what Claire was thinking as she wrote this!!!
Another incredible instalment in this series, I can’t wait to see what happens next!!!

What happens when sexy British male strippers head to Australia on tour and meet the hot bikers from Severed MC? You’ll be crying with laughter as they try to teach the Severed guys a few moves to impress their women… outside of the bedroom for a change!
Catch up with some of your favourite characters from Naked Night’s and Severed MC. Alongside some sizzling new dance routines there’ll be lots of love, laughter and possibly even a few happy tears in this novella.
I feel like I should start by saying that as much as this is book 2 in The Naked Nights Series, I have read this without having read book 1 and I honestly don’t feel as though I’ve missed anything crucial that would have affected my enjoyment of this book.
This book combines the characters from some of Ava’s other books and puts them in this enjoyable and funny adventure. I think the characters are very realistic and likeable, each has their own very distinct personalities, but they still work extremely well together. The dance routines are described in such detail that they are easy to picture the guys performing each of them.
Strip Down is a good and quick read, and I enjoyed meeting these characters for the first time and following their antics down under. I’m now looking forward to catching up on some of the other books surrounding these characters and their individual lives.
If you’re looking for a quick, enjoyable, and funny read then I would recommend Strip Down.

CEO February is another enjoyable, short, steamy straight to the point story that can be read whilst enjoying your favourite cuppa, maybe even during a lunch break, depending on how quick you read!
I love how Tracie’s writing style pulls you straight into the story and keeps your attention throughout.

I finished reading Black Canvas a week ago and it has taken a few days to organise my thoughts and feeling into coherent sentences for this review.
Black Canvas is dark and twisted from the beginning. This book will play with your mind, it will have you guessing and questioning what you read, it might even make you question your own level crazy too.
I found that Laura Rossi’s writing style captured my attention from the beginning and held it until the very end. Even the times when I had to put the book down, I found I was still thinking about Aria, Ivy, Max, Mattias, Gabriele, Lilliana, and Claudia. I was constantly trying to piece everything together, trying to guess what was coming next.
I managed to work out the link between Aria and Ivy, as well as the link between Gabriele and Max too, but I did not quite have the reason that linked them to each other. I did not know for certain if I was right until later in the book, so there were still times when I questioned my own thoughts.
Black Canvas shows a whole new level of twisted darkness that is inside Laura’s mind! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story and gaining an insight into that darkness. I hope that this is not a one-off, I would love to see more dark twisted stories from this incredibly talented author.
I do not think that my review of Black Canvas will ever do the book the justice it deserves without giving away too much of the story.
If you like psychological thrillers that are dark and twisted, then I honestly think that you will enjoy reading Black Canvas and becoming immersed in Aria’s disturbing world.
🖤 About The Author 🖤
My name is Laura Rossi and I am a dreamer, the kind that walks around all day and likes to go back and forth, from the real world to her own little world.
I have two kids and a fantastic partner. We work together in our little pharmacy in Italy.
After travelling around the world with my family and living abroad a few years, I graduated in Criminology and Psychology in London and worked with juvenile offenders for two years, before moving back to Italy.
I’ve been writing since I was thirteen but never published any of my manuscripts until 2016, when I completed Counterpoints book 1 after many happy, sleepless nights.
I am allergic to staticism, I cannot sit still. I love to travel and meet new people. When I am not busy working or being a mommy, you can find me at a car race event (I am a big Formula one fan) or at a rock gig, or on the beach fantasizing about new character and new stories I’d like to write.
On the run from her mobster stepfather, Ashlee Gabrielli knows to trust no one. When Ash stumbles through the gates of the Citadel looking for a place to hide, she has no idea the men here are shifters.
Tobias Santini is the leader of The Order of the Phoenix. The cadre’s superior has guided his men and protected their women since the first fated mate was found. With everyone else in relationships, Tobias remains alone, serving as guardian to them all.
When he discovers Ash hiding in the garden, everything changes. She’s the image of a woman he loved and lost a lifetime ago, and she’s in trouble. Taking her under his wing, Tobias vows to protect her—even from himself when attraction sparks between them.
Ash is inexplicably drawn to the silver fox superior. Eventually, he reveals their past life connection, but he’s still keeping secrets. She has one, too, possessing a dangerous gift that no one foresees. With forces unfolding their insidious plans and a final showdown brewing, the men of the Citadel will need every ally they have to survive the wrath of the vampire Etienne. Yet even that might not be enough this time.
This epic Season One finale has BDSM, consensual power exchange, dark themes, and potential triggers, including a history of child abuse. The first DD/lg book of the series is written for Ages 18+.
Guarded Hearts Season One features The Order of the Phoenix. Season Two will feature members of The Order of the Dragon, Hell’s Fury MC, who appear as secondary characters in Season One. Hell’s Fury MC: Dangerous Curves (Guarded Hearts Book 7.5/Season Two Prequel) debuts in the Twisted Steel 2 MC Anthology out 13 April 2021.
A native Brit, I live in Italy with my husband and daughter. When I am not writing and drinking copious amounts of tea, I enjoys taking photos of my adoptive country, trying to stay fit with running, reading amazing books and being a stay at home mother.
I love reading and writing romance, contemporary and historical, with a special fondness for stories with BDSM and/or menage relationships. I enjoy crafting characters that will stay with you long after you’ve read about them. Their stories are layered, with topics like PTSD and autism, with elements of spirituality and mysticism, with psychic gifts and everyday challenges to be met and overcome.
A lot of me goes into my books. I’ve done psychic readings at Irish festivals (like Grace in SOMETHING ELSE). I have cowritten music like Anna in SOMETHING MORE. Rachel’s story was the most challenging because of the themes involved. A dear friend struggles with post-rape PTSD and two of my nephews are autistic. SOMETHING MORE addresses some of the challenges they face.
Gael Fournier is harboring a secret—one that threatens to jeopardize his brothers at the Citadel and their fated mates. Broken, scarred, he refuses to open up to anyone, especially his partner Elijah.
Unwanted, Elijah Marley fights to break through to Gael anyway. Watching him from afar, nothing he does seems to pierce the wall around the Frenchman’s heart.
One chance meeting brings them face to face with their fated mate, Sam Henderson, a psychic medium who talks to the dead. Gael’s hostile reaction drives Elijah into the arms of another whose destiny is linked to theirs.
Angry, alone, Gael unknowingly walks into the clutches of the monster who’s been stalking him the whole time. After Elijah is unwittingly thrown into danger, too, it’s up to Sam and Father James Carver to race to the rescue of both men.
Not an easy task when their enemy is a vampire hell-bent on claiming and keeping what’s his….

“Sammy, get that one to bend over for me, would you, hon, so I can check out those tight buns of his in those jeans?” she murmured.
Sam bit her lip and swallowed down her reply. She’d had plenty of weird looks when people thought she was talking to herself. No one could see Grandma. They only heard her one-sided conversation which made things awkward.
“Oh, yeah, come to Grandma,” the old woman crooned, circling around behind the men and eyeing their tushes.
Please don’t get handsy, Grandma, she mentally warned and hoped she was listening in. Bum pinching was Ellie Mae Henderson’s afterlife obsession. Okay. Sam would admit they were both drop-dead gorgeous. The blond had a broody, bad boy vibe going and the other one’s smile was bright and friendly. His eyes twinkled and there was something about him that made her warm all over. She really needed to get laid. It had been months since her last hook up. Not since North Carolina. Her grandmother’s inability to keep her hands to herself had ended every relationship she’d ever been in. Her longest had lasted a month until he’d gotten spooked. Once Grandma got grabby, it was goodbye, boyfriend.
“Come on, girl! Don’t just stand there with your mouth hanging open. Charm these fine young men. Winner, winner, chicken dinner. Play your cards right and you’ll have some dark and white meat in your bed tonight. If it makes you feel any better, I promise I won’t watch.”
Talk about killing the mood. Sam shook herself and focused on the men who’d come with Prince.
“I’m Sam,” she repeated. “And you are…?”
“Elijah Marley.” The handsome black man with the blinding smile had a Jamaican accent. He had his hands full holding the Irish wolfhound, who was straining to check out Gus.
She looked expectantly at the broody one, a tragic blond with a dark shroud clinging to his shoulders.
“Gael Fournier,” he clipped in a French accent, as unhappy to be here as Elijah was delighted.
She intuited that they were partners but they sure didn’t act like it. If they were in a committed relationship, it was on the rocks. She sensed a separation looming with a chance of a reunion. The future had yet to be determined. It would have to be both their choices to make things work. Otherwise they were doomed to fail.
Which was too bad. They really were a beautiful couple.
Sighing, she wished them well. Just her luck to attract two gay men. She seemed to have a knack for it.
“And this is Prince,” she hummed, dropping to her knees. Putting her hand beneath his muzzle, she looked him squarely in the eye. “They tell me that you’ve been chasing a cat. Want to tell me what that’s all about, hmm?”
In her mind’s eye, Sam saw a blanket that used to be the dog’s. Somehow the cat had gotten hold of it and hidden it.
“You need to help them find it,” Grandma told her. “Go on! Tell them what you saw! If anyone can handle your truth, it’s these boys. Trust me.”
Sam lifted her chin and met their gazes, shifting hers back and forth between the two of them.
“The cat—Gibbs?” she asked Prince, double-checking what she thought he said. “Prince says that Gibbs stole his blanket. He’s only been trying to get it back. The cat’s hiding it somewhere on the property. If you like, Gus and I can do a search-and-rescue…, help find it and restore peace in the household. I’m afraid Prince isn’t going to stop until he gets it back. He barely tolerated the cat before this. He seriously dislikes him now. Sneaky thief, he says. And my precious. Dear Lord. He says he likes Lord of the Rings on movie night. This is one seriously fine animal you have.”
Gael remained stonily silent, eyeing her with suspicion. He wouldn’t trust easily. There were scars on his soul that might never heal.
Elijah looked at her in wonder. “You are a conjure woman, yes?” he asked. “You see things. Hear things.”
Gael curled his lip and made a scoffing sound.
Sam refused to apologize for her gifts. “I don’t do spellwork,” she told them. “I don’t intentionally conjure things, but I do hear them. Spirits. Animals. Trees. My grandmother. She’s gone but she’s still very much with me. My gifts are what let Gus and I be such a successful search-and-rescue team. When the trail goes cold, I can point him in the right direction until he picks it up again. Look, I know this is as unconventional a class as what you could imagine, but I’m happy to give you a refund. I just want to help Prince find his blanket. And I’ll have a talk with Gibbs while I’m at it. Hopefully, he’ll see the error of his ways. With cats, it’s hard to say. Too many of them remember when they were worshiped as gods.”
“Yes!” Elijah agreed excitedly. “We would be honored with your presence and help in our home.”
Gael’s jaw tightened but he didn’t say a word. The look in his eyes, though, spoke volumes. He didn’t believe a word she was saying—or at least he refused to.
“Great!” Sam replied, brightly ignoring the cold blue eyes directed at her and Grandma’s satisfied smirk. “Let’s start the lesson and then we can work out when I can come over.”
Prince turned out to be a good listener. Full of energy with a boisterous nature, he loved to play. Gus was a good influence on him. Well-trained and patient, her partner helped to show the younger dog what he was supposed to do. By the time the lesson was up, Prince and Elijah both were more confident with each other. Unlike Gael, who hung at the back of the room like a storm cloud. He hadn’t attempted to interact. Instead, he’d watched and silently judged.
“That one’s a project.” Grandma commented, eyeing the Frenchman. “He needs someone to take him in hand.”
Sam’s traitorous thoughts slid to a certain part of his anatomy she would love to take in hand. From the way he filled out his jeans, he wasn’t short or small in that department. Feeling her cheeks heat in a blush, she shook herself. Holy Batman, what was she thinking?
