Claiming the Cleanfreak
by Daniel May


(Mate for the Alien Master #2)
by L.V. Lane


Cruelty & Fire
(The Art of Ruin Duet, #1)
by Audrey Rush

DarkRomance, Dark, MM


DarkScifi, Aliens


Abuse, BDSM, Dark Romance

Isaac is a class A shitheel with only three things on his mind: his next vape break, his next paycheck, and a just-for-fun feud with fun police coworker, Atticus.

Atticus is a surface level stick-in-the-mud. Cleancut and built, he's never found without hand sanitizer or a scowl. He hates three things: a disorganized workspace, germs of any kind, and Isaac.

The two exist on the verge of Atticus’s fist down Isaac’s throat at all times, until one day, Isaac discovers a secret: Atticus’s pierced nipples. Something clicks in his head, and Isaac goes from zero to a hundred. Obsessed. He has to have Atticus — whether or not the big guy is on board with this budding romance.

Things move fast, but Isaac isn't happy just to get him in bed. He needs to own Atticus body and soul — and doing so requires confronting Atticus’s germophobia, by making him more scared of the person who loves him than he is of a dirty floor.


Fierce, untamed, and brutal, Quin, the alien ravager, is all these things and more.

The kind of alien that wants to claim me and make me into his pet.

One small problem, he's not real. He's a character in a book.

None of this matters anymore, for the lines have gotten blurred. 

I need to be protected, and my fierce alien ravager is going to protect me.


For three years, I’ve watched her.
Studied her. Painted her. Waited for the right moment to take her away from her sheltered life.

I’ve restrained my destructive urges, but Kora’s facade moves me: Virtue. Innocence. Perfection.

Like all works of art, nothing is perfect. Without her mother’s approval, Kora never sees the daylight. I won’t expose Kora to the sun, but I will watch her burn.

In the end, I’m saving her.

So I will drag her down into my world of darkness. Because even a cruel artist like me deserves his inspiration, his ashen queen.

Living or dead, Kora will fuel my art.

by Amelia Wilde


(Inferno #1)
by Yolanda Olson 

Abuse, Dark


DarkRomance, Pirates, Captive


Dark, Horror, Abuse


I came for war. I left with an obsession.
With one look, Isa captivated me. She consumed me, drawing me into her world without ever knowing the dangers of mine.
I intend to make her mine, no matter what lies I need to tell to manipulate her into falling in love with El Diablo. It should be simple enough, but secrets lurk in the depths of her multicolored eyes, and I’ll do anything to understand what broke her before I had the chance.
Because she’s mine to break.


Rafael Ibarra tore through my life like a raging inferno.
Consuming every part of me he touches, he promises to show me passion and the real Ibiza. Though our tryst can never be anything but temporary, I never want to leave the man who makes me wish things were different. But there’s a nightmare hiding within his multicolored gaze, a phantom rattling at the cages who wants to devour me, to take me and claim me as his.
He’s temptation, pushing me toward sin with his wicked touch. But the sins of the flesh are different from the sins of the mind, and as much as I hate his secrets.
I will never tell him my own.


A modern-day pirate.
An heiress lost at sea.
And the treasure of a lifetime.

He’s beautiful. Calculating. Cruel. And he’s taken me hostage.

When pirates board my boyfriend’s yacht, I jump overboard to save myself. Drifting asea. Until one man rescues me from the endless ocean.

Except he has plans of his own. I’m worth too much money for ransom. He’ll keep me on his ship and in his bed. The real danger lies in his dark-depth eyes. He wants more from me than money. Than passion. He wants everything.

He rescued me, but I’m far from safe.

There’s an entire sea of danger threatening to drag me under.


I haven't fallen down in days.

That may not seem like much, but my God, it's such an accomplishment. Being made to stand and kneel repeatedly while he performs his rituals is exhausting and I'm pretty sure that the welts on the bottom of my feet are ready to pop.

My knees. They're bruised, covered in dry blood and cuts; but I won't fall down. I can't fall down; that means he wins again and I get put down in the oubliette.

Being in the dark never scared me, being alone was something I used to cherish until he took me.

I just want to find the light now. I want to find the warm place that he tells me so much about; the place where he says all of this pain will make sense.

I won't fall down again.

I can't.

Not before I find my peace in the light. I have to do it soon because I'm not sure how much more I can take.

Miserere mei sunt.
