The Lebrus Stone ~ Review

The Lebrus Stone 
by Miriam Khan
Publication Date: November 28, 2014

When eighteen-year-old orphan, Crystal Valdez, accepts an invitation to the small town of Blacksville, West Virginia, she hopes to have a summer to remember and a chance to learn more about her parents, to also get to know the family she never knew existed. But the Lockes begin to act strange and erratic; eerie movements in the night fuel her vivid and gruesome nightmares. To complicate her summer further, she becomes attracted to the menacing yet handsome Cray Locke: her none blood related cousin. He seems determined to keep his distance. The only bonus to her trip seems to be the housekeeper and gardener. And when a local informs Crystal of the secrets buried at Thorncrest Manor, the kind consisting of a forbidden relationship and a war between hidden worlds, and witchcraft, she must decide whom to trust. Even if it means leaving behind those she has come to love.

YA Paranormal Romance - A Modern Gothic.

Different & entertaining!, August 8, 2015
A very good story! This is a unique world I look forward to re-visiting again soon. I appreciate the great detail we are given throughout although I would have enjoyed a bit more action or suspense in a few areas. The characters were different than many I've come across lately & the plot kept us guessing. I did find it a bit confusing going back & forth when referring to the Lockes as family & then non-family. Their relationships were a bit odd anyway, but as long as I kept reminding myself that they were not blood related (even when it stated the opposite) I could almost keep it straight. I am very curious to know what will become of Cray & that "relationship".

You can read the book up to chapter six here:

She is now eager to see what readers will think.

Matteo ~ an Erotic Italian Mob Story
by Rachael Orman
Publication Date: August 6, 2015

button synopsis
Being born into slavery, I never thought my owner, my very mother, would sell me. And she didn’t.
Until Matteo.
I was tormented, struggling to come to terms with my new life then he narrowed it down to two things.
Pleasure. Pain.
The man confused me at every turn with his unexpected and unattainable desires.
If only he’d speak to me.
If only he’d tell me how to avoid upsetting him.
If only I could please him.
**Disclaimer: This is a DARK erotic Italian Mafia story. There are twisted behaviors in this book not everyone will be able to handle. Explicit, violent, and sexual scenes are involved. Not for the wary of heart.**


A shiver ran through me. I was chained up in his basement. I’d never been restrained in such a way before. Madam never resorted to such means since she knew I never would’ve run. I had no desire to live free of enslavement. It was all I knew and all I wanted. However, feeling the cool breeze in the room and the even colder restraints on my skin made me wonder if maybe I had thought wrong all along. “I can see from the look on your face that you’ve never been locked up before, and I see that’s where Madam went wrong with you. No, you didn’t want to escape, but you don’t know how to behave. No, you don’t truly know the extent to which a punishment can go. Don’t worry, that is going to change starting now. This will throw a wrench in my initial plans for you, but I refuse to let you go now. You are mine and will be forever, so get used to the idea.” Matteo leaned against the wall in front of me, sliding his hands into his pockets as if we were carrying on a completely normal conversation. He appeared entirely at ease while I struggled with all the new emotions flooding me. After a moment of staring at me, he pushed off the wall and stood close enough I could feel his body heat. He reached down to pull his erection from his dress slacks. Sliding his hand over it slowly, he dragged the tip over my mouth. “Suck it. Get me off and I’ll leave you alone for the remainder of the night. Fail to do so and I will start your punishment now,” he said as he shoved the hot, hard, musky flesh into my mouth. I wanted to cry out that I thought the lashings from the belt had been my punishment. Instead, I sucked him down my throat and bobbed my head along his length the way he’d shown me he liked it done. The longer I sucked, the more my lips became numb and the more I realized that I really had no idea what being a slave was like. Finally, he groaned and his release filled my mouth and throat before he pulled back. As he tucked himself into his pants again he yanked my hair so I was forced to look him in the eye. “Welcome to the Italian Mafia way of life, bella.”

Mother by day. Writer by night. I spend a majority of my day with my children and reading while my nights are filled with the sound of the keyboard as I work on my next work.
I have written in nearly every LBGT category as well as the traditional erotic romance category.
I love to try new things and learn from every piece of work I write. I'll write just about anything once to learn from it. I've even ventured out of my normal erotica genre into Monster Erotica. Doubt you'll find me writing anything not erotic as you can barely get me to even read something out of that category, but then again, you never know what I might try next.
Never stop learning. Try everything at least once.

The Sapphire Sacrifice Release

The Sapphire Sacrifice ~ Gem Apocalypse #3
by Ravyn Rayne
Publication Date: August 20, 2015
A virus designed to murder Sapphire’s. No one from Brayleigh saw it coming. Neither James nor Aria expected four men in a deserted city to attack. Thrown into the back of a van, James is captured by claimers – men that hunt Sapphire’s and bring them into quarantine, where they must settle their debt for treatment. Those that can’t pay off their debt are held in the broker’s quarters until they’re bought by angels, often resulting in slavery, hunting humans, and a host of other horrendous atrocities. Aria is different. She’s naturally immune, or so she’s told. On a mission to rescue James, she finds herself in danger and quickly learns the power of friendship, commitment, and undying love. With a taste of age play, spanking, and a master/slave relationship with voyeurism, this dystopian erotic adventure is sure to leave you satisfied.

Series: Gem Apocalypse Book Three
Publisher: Blushing Books
Genre: Dystopian, Romantic Erotica

Aria screamed. The air left her lungs, and her cheeks burned red. Sweat trickled down her forehead. Adrenaline pumped through her veins as she fought off their attackers. All four of them were men, a few years older, and they wore black tactical gear. Were they militia? Their eyes were similar with a deep green stoic expression. They could all be brothers. After the genocide of anyone not a sapphire, a person with blue eyes, Aria had taken notice of eye color. They still couldn't get past their differences, not a hundred or even a thousand years later. The world always seemed to be at war over something. Besides, she had never met another person with emerald eyes, and now four of them were attacking James and herself. What the hell was going on? James kicked at the assailant, trying to gain distance between him and the man attacking them, slamming his fist into the assailant's face. Blood oozed from the man's nose. Who was he? What did he want with them? One man grabbed Aria, pinning her arms back, keeping her from stopping the attack on James. Why were they doing this? She attempted to shake the man off her, but his grip tightened. "Let me go!" She stomped hard on the man's toe and then used her elbow to attack his chest behind her. Breaking free, she headed for James, wanting to help him any way that she could. James fought two men and Aria ran forward, slamming her knee into the groin of a third assailant. "Run!" James grabbed her hand and they took off on foot. His hand was wet and gross from the blood caked to his skin. James and Aria were a mess. Thunder rumbled in the distance. The sky a dark murky gray filled with low-lying clouds. Aria's heart beat wildly as if it would leap out of her chest. The pain unbearable, but neither of them slowed. Darting through streets and around broken down vehicles, she knew the men were close. She heard the engine of their vehicle one street over.  

Five Questions with James
(a character interview for The Gem Apocalypse series)
Of all the places you've lived, what is your favorite? That's a tough question to answer. I loved Brayleigh, before the uprising. I know it wasn't a perfect society, but I was happy. It will always be my home as I have fond memories of my childhood growing up at the royal palace. 

 If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Give me bacon! It's hard to come by but I absolutely love it. 

You've had you're share of women at the royal harem. Any aside from Aria that you've loved? I've loved all the women I've invited into my home. Who's to say you can't love everyone?

Do you prefer dominating or being dominated? I love to spank Aria. So yes, I prefer to dominate my partner.

Would you ever let Aria spank you? I wouldn't bend over and let her spank me, but she can certainly try. I like to remain in charge. 


Grab the The Emerald Virgin and start at the beginning of the series.

 The Emerald Virgin ~ Gem Apocalypse #1 
  Publication Date: June 19, 2015

Emerald – a girl with green eyes and a rarity after the horrific genocide that slaughtered millions. After the war, King Gideon rose in power. A lust-filled and greedy king that believed in the power of slavery. At eighteen, women were required to come before King Gideon and his four sons, to offer themselves as a courtesan. The princes took only those they found most attractive and alluring. The rest were returned to their homes with a brand on their wrist proving they had been through the process and rejected. Ignoring the ritual was punishable by death. Aria Stone had been kept hidden from the princes and the ceremony, because she was an Emerald. At twenty-three, the royal guards storm her home, murder her mother, and drag her to court. She must face the four princes. A dystopian erotic adventure.
Now available on Kindle Unlimited! Borrow for FREE or purchase on Amazon  

“Your guards murdered my mother, dragged and drugged me from my home. Anything else you wish to know?” Aria asked, short-tempered.
James stepped close enough to feel his breath against her cheek. “I can see your reluctance to be here, but I assure you no harm will come to you, Aria.”
It was hard to believe him given the circumstances. Aria crossed her arms defensively. She didn’t say a word. There was nothing to say that would please him and make her happy. She wouldn’t lie or pretend to care about him when anger ebbed away at her and boiled in her blood. Not when he made Aria think of her mother and asked her about what happened, as if he pretended to care. Unlike the other women here looking for something, she just wanted her freedom returned. Pretending eluded her.

The Amber Voyeur ~ Gem Apocalypse #2
Publication Date: July 20, 2015
No longer safe in Brayleigh, Aria and James travel by ship to find refuge and discover what’s left of the world. Dangerous seas and pirates lurking are only the start of their troubles. Forced off the boat with nothing but the clothes on their back, the crew and passengers make it to a nearby island, only to be abducted by the Knight Tribe, a clan of romantic warriors with a voyeuristic culture and a taste for nightly entertainment. Get swept away in this dystopian erotic adventure, brimming with romance, spankings, and betrayal. 

Now available on Kindle Unlimited! Borrow for FREE or purchase on Amazon    
“Hey!” Aria shouted, not that it did anything to stop their fighting.“Enough!” James’s voice echoed in the confined space. The men let go of one another and stood, dusting off the dirt caked to their skin. A gentleman with red hair and blue eyes stepped toward Aria. He’d been one of the three fighting, a crew member on the ship. “Do you know what they’re having us do?” he asked.“No,” Aria said, glancing back at the die lying on the floor. Aria rolled the large die slightly with her hand. It stood up to her waist in height, though it felt lighter than it looked. She’d never seen a die quite so large. Who made it? “The festival tonight is entertainment for the commander and the tribe. She’s choosing two from the pit and they’ll have to do whatever the die says.” Aria swallowed nervously as she further examined the giant die. One side showed two people battling with swords. Aria frowned, turning the die onto another side, it revealed a pictograph of two men with guns in a shoot-out. That wouldn’t end well for someone. Her heart skipped a beat, and she rolled the die onto another side, covering her lips in surprise. Was that a paddle? Her cheeks burned and she took a step back from the die. James didn’t appear nearly as affected as Aria from the news. He stepped forward, resting his hand on her lower back. “Do we know who has been elected for the festival?” Kali shook her head. “The commander chooses two worthy opponents from the pit of invaders and mainlanders. Seeing as how the mainlanders have assimilated or died,” Kali said, clearing her throat, “it’s safe to say that one of you that has not been chosen by a tribe member, will be selected.”

An Interview with the Author    
What can we expect next from you? About twice a month, you can anticipate a new release! In September, I've got quite a few books coming out, including Hot-Blooded Lust (Federal Agent Chronicles 3) and Grave Misfortune. There's also talk of releasing The Courtesan Slave Trade series in September. It'll be a busy month. I hope you love reading. 

What book are you writing right now? Well, it's currently untitled. (I have a few working titles but I'm not sure any of them fit it perfectly). It's a romantic dystopian erotica with a very edgy twist. I'm hoping to have it finished by the end of August. Right now I'm about 7k words in to the story, and I have a very busy month. 

When do you typically decide the title for a book? After the book is written or perhaps when it's about 2/3rd's completed. By then I'm usually writing up the book blurb at the same time and working on the title or series name.

Can you tell us about your next upcoming event? I'll be speaking at the Passionate Pen Conference in Arlington, Virginia beginning August 27th. It's hosted by Blushing Books and Lazy Day Publishing.
