Author’s Note

This anthology was hatched because dark romances and their creators have a stigma associated with them. Yes, we like coloring outside of the lines, and no, we don’t write your run-of-the-mill stories, but that shouldn’t devalue our art. Nor should it be grounds for it to be censored.
Reading is subjective. What someone sees as orange, others may see as pink, but that doesn’t make one opinion more valuable than the other. We all have different tastes in everything—that’s the beauty of being human.
Beyond this note, we have included samples of our works, hoping to introduce new readers to our world and also give our loyal readers a chance to get lost in the stories they love with these bonus scenes. It’s only a taste, just three chapters each…but it’s enough for you to get addicted and want more.
We cannot promise that when boy meets girl, they fall in love and then live happily ever after. However, what we can guarantee are kick-ass heroines and antiheroes you’ll love to hate from a bunch of authors who work their asses off to give life to the craziness inside their heads.
So come, sit, and enjoy a taste of the darkness…you just may like it.
We dare you.
Love,
Monica, Aleatha, Amo, Callie, Cora, Giana, K Webster, Lili, Parker, S.M. Soto & Willow.

Devney Maxwell has been my best friend since we were six years old, but she has no idea I’m in love with her.

WILD HIGHWAY (Runaway #2)

Release Date: June 23rd

Purchase Details: http://www.devneyperry.com/books/wild-highway

Gemma Lane built an empire. Not a small feat, considering her home as a teenager was a makeshift tent in a California junkyard. She’s dedicated her life to turning pennies into millions. She has power, fortune and prestige.

And she’s leaving it all behind.

Gemma is headed across the country in her best friend’s Cadillac when a detour in Montana reunites her with old acquaintances and a man who hasn’t changed. Easton Greer challenges her every word and tests her every limit because he doesn’t believe she’s really abandoned her riches. She ignores his snide remarks and muttered censure—until the day she’s ready to return to the wild highway, and Easton taunts her to stay.

She’ll prove to him she’s not just running back to her wealthy life, that she’s more than her money. She’ll unlock her guarded heart and hope that this time around, he’ll treasure the key.

EXCERPT

I opened the door, a smile still on my face, and collided, headfirst, with a wall of muscle.
“Oh, sorry.” I looked up and my heart stopped.
The smell of leather and aftershave filled my nose. I looked up to see a pair of dark brown eyes hooded by long, onyx lashes. I took in the straight nose, the sharp jaw and strong chin. My gaze dropped to the full lips I’d tasted once, on a night eleven years ago.
I’d never seen a face as symmetrical and so beautifully masculine as Easton Greer’s.
Even when he scowled, like he was now, it was a wonder.
He’d gotten even more handsome. How was that possible? He’d transformed from a young man to just a man, man. Rugged and rough and sexy.
“Gemma.” My name came out as a growl in his deep voice and I tore my gaze away from his mouth, taking a step back.
“Hi,” I breathed, the air heavy and thick.
He took a step away, then another, his glare unwavering.
Easton cast his scowl over his shoulder and spotted the Cadillac. “That yours?”
“Yes.”
“You’re staying here.” Not a question. An accusation. If he had it his way, I’d be uninvited.
I lifted my chin. “Yes, I came to see Katherine.”
His jaw ticked. “I thought we’d gotten rid of you years ago.”
Ouch. I guess he was still pissed about that whole sex in his room and waking up to find me gone.
But, good or bad, he hadn’t forgotten me.

Katherine Gates has been in love with Cash Greer since the moment he saved her life from a runaway goat. According to Cash, she’s the little sister he never had, the greatest roommate in the world and his favorite coworker. They’re friends—best friends.

In the dark days of her youth, it was his friendship that kept her alive and made life in a junkyard worth living. So she’s learned to shove her feelings for Cash down deep, even if that means ignoring eyes that shine brighter than the Montana summer sun and the smile that illuminates the snowiest winter day.

Except with every passing year, the denial takes its toll on her wounded heart until one day Katherine decides to take an impulsive road trip to the Oregon coast. Alone. That is, until Cash cons his way into the passenger seat.

The farther they travel, the harder it is to pretend. And when she confesses her feelings, she learns that Cash has some secrets of his own. Secrets that will either bond them together.

Or rip them apart.

Seven years ago, they took everything from me. My father. My
husband. My child.
When they stole my chance at justice, I vowed to get
revenge.
Then I met him.
He tempts that long-lost part of me, but his presence is a
reminder that betrayal lurks around every corner.
Their biggest mistake is underestimating my commitment for
vengeance.
They don’t realize that when it comes to a woman like me,
hell hath no fury.

Trailer
Excerpt
Death. 
Heartache. 
Vengeance. 
This isn’t a tale for the tender-hearted, the
judgmental, or those who refuse to think outside the box and look at the
broader picture. Those who think that everything is black and white. Simple.
Cut and dried. 
It’s not. There’s always shades of gray. 
It’s easier to say “I’d never” when you’re
sitting safely at home with the people you love most right by your side. When
grief hasn’t woven itself so deeply in the fabric of your DNA that it can never
be unraveled. There can be no separation. And even if you tried, it would only
result in you becoming a frayed and tangled mess.
It’s easy to say you’d never walk the
treacherous moral tightrope. But you aren’t the one who plummeted to the depths
of hell, littered with the agony of loss and the anger of injustice, and had to
claw your way out.
This story isn’t scrawled on pristine white
pages in bold black ink. Marred, torn, and blood-spattered, its chapters hold
deep gouges inflicted by betrayal. 
This story is about a woman who had everything
taken from her.
And how she took it all back.

Author: Nana Malone
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: April 21, 2020

Blurb

It began with betrayal.
And ended in murder.
She was never supposed to cross my path. 
She was never supposed to know about the currency of
Secrets or the Oaths of Blood.
But like a thief in the night, she stole my soul even if she
wasn’t mine to possess.
As a member of the Elite, I live by simple tenets. A gentleman
above all. Private matters stay private. Secrets whispered are never revealed.
Enemies and friends are of the same coin. And power is king.
My so called brothers killed my friend. I intend to make
them pay.  And before it’s over, I’ll bend all the rules of morality,
decency and legality. I will borrow and steal to set the scales right. But
begging–begging, you can forget about.
My name is Ben Covington and I know my sins.

Excerpt

“You think
this is my fault.”
“I’m just
saying.”
“You’re the
one who needs to be careful. You’re small and delicate, and you traipse around
jumping into messes like you can’t get hurt. When someone tries to mug you, you
try to fight back.”
“I just
couldn’t let it happen again. Besides, they wanted to take me somewhere, and
even I know that’s not a good idea.”
“At least
you know that much.”
She jabbed
me in the chest, her finger leaving an invisible, searing burn on my skin. And
I wanted more.
“You need
to be more careful.”
“Careful,
Mr. Covington, someone might accuse you of caring.”
I squared
my shoulders. “Hardly.” My gaze fell on her lips, and my gut tightened. No.
Stop looking at her mouth
.
Olivia
swallowed hard. “I am… uh…” The spark of lightning between us danced. I could
physically feel the tension in the room. I needed to get changed. I
needed her to get out for me to do that. But goddamn, her hands were on me as
she patted me dry. “Look, it’s fine. I’m just going to help you, and then we’ll
get back to our day, okay? God, I’m such an idiot. I was really trying to
help.”
She
continued to pat me with the towel as she spoke rapidly, hardly taking a
breath. Each press of her palm was stoking the flame, playing with fire. “Um,
Livy?”
She kept on
talking though. About how I needed to be more careful. That I should have
better situational awareness. Have a clue as to what was happening around me.
All the
while, she had zero idea what was going on in my head. The war I was having
with myself about touching her, about what was appropriate. All the blood
rushed south, and I clenched my teeth, trying to fight against my growing
erection. She chose that moment to glance down.
Fucking
brilliant.
Her voice
went throaty when she mumbled, “Um, I think you’re mostly dry. You can handle
this yourself. I’m going to go.”
I cleared
my throat in a desperate attempt to regain control. “You probably should.”
But she
didn’t move, just stared at me with those wide dark eyes. Daring me.
“Olivia?”
It sounded like a plea.
Her wide
dark gaze met mine. “Yeah?”
“I’m going
to kiss you now.”

Author Bio
USA Today Bestselling Author, NANA MALONE’s love of all
things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she
borrowed from her cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious
thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since.

With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner
Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own
characters. Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime
works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as
sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

The books in her series have been on multiple Amazon Kindle
and Barnes & Noble best seller lists as well as the iTunes Breakout Books
list and most notably the USA Today Bestseller list.

Until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find Nana working
hard on additional books for her series as well as other fun, sassy romances
for characters that won’t leave her alone. And if she’s not working or hiding
in the closet reading, she’s acting out scenes for her husband, daughter and
puppy in sunny San Diego.
