Ben Knight has held a lot of titles—devoted son, big brother to six siblings, captain of the Marine’s Fleet Anti-Terrorism Security Team and his best-known gig of Louisiana playboy. But the ladies are just going to have to understand that his time’s stretched thin when he takes on the leadership of a new special ops force.
With his brothers as sidekicks.
Worst idea ever. But a decision Ben has no control over, and control is his middle name. Actually, it’s Bartholomew but thank God nobody knows that, except one pretty little brown-eyed Cajun girl with access to too much information about the Knight family and an oh-so-sweet sassy mouth. A mouth that he’s never forgotten even though it’s been three months since he’s last had her in his bed, against a wall and over a barstool.
Dahlia was a victim of the notorious Ben Knight’s love-’em-and-leave-’em lifestyle, and it ticks her off that she can’t forget him. Maybe it’s that bad-boy smile or the way he looks like sin poured into low-slung jeans. When he comes sniffing around again, her libido makes her jump into action—and straight into a world of secrets surrounding Ben. Leading her to question whether her heart can withstand a life with a man who might not be alive tomorrow.
Em Petrova was raised by hippies in the wilds of Pennsylvania but told her parents at the age of four she wanted to be a gypsy when she grew up. She has a soft spot for babies, puppies and 90s Grunge music and believes in Bigfoot and aliens. She started writing at the age of twelve and prides herself on making her characters larger than life and her sex scenes hotter than hot.
She burst into the world of publishing in 2010 after having five beautiful bambinos and figuring they were old enough to get their own snacks while she pounds away at the keys . In her not-so-spare time, she is fur-mommy to a Labradoodle named Daisy Hasselhoff and works as editor with USA Today and New York Times bestselling authors.
Being normal is underrated.
Red Ryder has been going to Wonderland Guardian Academy since middle school, but she still doesn’t belong. At 16 years old, she doesn’t have any magical talents to speak of, and the rest of her peers know it. She may as well be a typical, mundane human, and the witch sisters make her school life miserable. How is she supposed to help humanity as a guardian when she may as well be one of them?
But Red is a wolf tracker–though she doesn’t come into her powers until the death of the current wolf tracker in her family, her grandmother. Her blood carries the wolfsbane gene, the only thing that helps humans build a resistance to the Lycan virus. Her family has been donating blood for ages in the hopes of keeping the virus at bay.
When her grandmother becomes too sick to do her job, the werewolf community wonders why their tracker has gone on hiatus. And one pack alpha decides it’s time to get rid of the line of wolf trackers once and for all.

Pauline Creeden is a horse trainer from Virginia, but writing is her therapy. In her fiction, she creates worlds that are both familiar and strange, often pulling the veil between dimensions. She becomes the main character in each of her stories, and because she has ADD, she will get bored if she pretends to be one person for too long.

Her heroes are Alpha-holes. Her heroines can stare into the heart of darkness and emerge…not unscathed, but stronger in the broken places. Her writing can be intense in places, with scenes which might be triggering for some people.
But I can promise a unique journey of equal parts pain and passion, no infidelity, and always a happy ending! For contests, freebies, and news of my latest releases, sign up below!
Ginger Talbot is a fan of dark chocolate, dark romance, and talking about herself in the third person. She’s a restless soul who’s wandered from coast to coast, and can generally be found in the local bookstore coffeeshop, flipping through the pages of a romance or thriller, and overindulging in lattes.
She majored in journalism and, in days of yore, worked as a newspaper reporter covering cops and courts, and then went on to work as a patient care tech in an emergency room. She’s also done stints as the world’s worst secretary and a mediocre cocktail waitress.
Now she sits around all day making up stories about sexy, dominant Alpha-holes and the smart-mouthed, sassy women who love to hate to love them.
When a teenage fortune teller in a traveling carnival meets up with an attractive townie, she finds a new magic in her tarot cards.

About the Author

I think one of the most common questions I’ve seen in romance forums lately is “What is Reverse Harem, exactly?”
At a very basic level, a reverse harem romance is about one woman in concurrent relationships with three or more men. At the end of the story, rather than choose one among them, she chooses to continue having relationships with all of them.
Other than that basic premise–encoded in the RH motto “Why Choose?”–a reverse harem may belong to any subgenre of romance. A reverse harem novel may be paranormal, contemporary, science fiction, young adult, adult… as you can see in the variety of reverse harem books I’ve recently released. 🙂
In Rift Spun, a novelette in Night Fire, arachno-mage Rhiann plans to use the magic of the Rift to take down the ruling Archmage Prime, a necromancer who killed her family. To do that, she’ll need to find three men willing to become her familiars—one shifter, one demon, and one angel. Lucky for her, she won’t have to choose only one.
In All that Glitters, when one of pack-leader Alia’s mates is taken by a raiding ship searching for gold, she vows to get him back no matter what it takes. Even if that means teaming up with another pack–the one that was once her pack’s greatest rival.
In A Streak of Tigers, available in Magic and Alphas, tiger-shifter Lana has to decide how to deal with not one, but three new tigers in her life!
In Seduced by the Gladiators, Hannah joins an expedition to the long-lost Lurran colony, where she discovers that their answer to a shortage of women might be her answer to finding a new life.
