Twenty-three-year-old Briar Pryce has earned a little rest and relaxation. She’s rescued her best friend from being transformed into a cat and stopped a war in the Poisoned Apple, New York City’s hidden neighborhood of counterfeit curses and fairy tale trickery. All Briar wants is to have a carb-filled brunch, gossip over a couple of mead-mosas, and maybe figure out if she’s actually in a love triangle with her high-school crush and her strait-laced business partner.
But relaxing is hard when the city starts screaming.
Some malevolent curse has invaded the dreams of the sleeping princesses across the Apple, spreading nightmares and violence throughout the city. What’s worse, a militant new faction of knights has used the chaos to grab power and trap Briar’s community in its authoritarian grip. If Briar’s going to be able to free the princesses and stop these fairy tale fascists, she’s going to have to solve a deeper mystery: the origins of her own uncontrollable, emotion-altering powers. Briar and her friends will journey from the depths of the enchanted Afterwoods to the penthouses of the Upper East Side to stop the knights, wake the princesses, and save the Poisoned Apple.

A nightmare from my past has arrived, and she’s driving a monster truck.
My life was picture perfect, from my house to my lawn to my Italian leather shoes, then a redneck blast from my past arrived with a garden gnome clutched in one hand and a ten-year-old son I’m pretty sure is mine holding the other.
As President of the Homeowner’s Association, it’s my sacred duty to uphold the nobility and class of our esteemed neighborhood, but all my baby mamma seems to care about is setting the world record for number of plastic flamingos in one yard.
I can’t let her ravage my neighborhood, but I don’t want to drive her away, either. Not before I get the chance to know my son… and to rekindle the flame with the fiery woman who raised him.

Dexter didn’t like being a pawn. It seems life was taking him there though. His father and he never saw eye to eye, but being captured and tortured for his father’s mistakes gave Dexter too much to think about. First, the girl he lost, he’d never forget what they did to her. It changed him, and made him see the small city his father moved him to for what is was, a prison for magicals, the damned, and now him. Too bad, the creator of the void didn’t realize they would be better off if they’d set him free, because now, he was fighting for his life, and someone he’d have to hide his feelings from to protect, not just from those that want to drag them back, but from him -a vigilant.

“Do you want to escape here? I can help you.” Dex wanted out of this place. Nash smiled, “Yes, but now is not the time. We have to wait for her to hatch. I need her for a successful escape. It’s why I implanted a song in the guard’s mind to put her with me.” “You manipulated my friend Trey?” Dex wiped a hand down his face. This guy Nash was dangerous. Dex could feel it, only now, Dex felt it was time to stop trying to be the nice guy. He would survive. Finding a way to say his family would start with getting out of here, even if making a deal with this little devil would do it. Nash lifted an eyebrow, “I hummed him a tune.” “Whatever. You want my help getting out of here? I’m offering as long as we go our separate ways.” “I will take your willing help.” Nash cocked his head to the side, “Although, if I wanted it, I could make you give it, you know.” Dex crossed his arms over his chest, “Isn’t a free give better?” “Oh, it is. What will you give me for helping you get free?” Dex frowned, “Give you? I got nothing.” “Everyone has…something.” “What are you? I like to know what kind of creature I’m bargaining with.” Dex didn’t want to give this imp anything. “I am many things, yet in part, not a human like you.” Dex caught a hint of regret in his tone. Dex could swear Nash had a hungry gleam in his eye. Trey had warned him that Nash was pied piper and Rumpelstiltskin. Dex knew the pied piper had something to do with music. He had no idea what a Rumpelstiltskin was, and he had a feeling he shouldn’t mention it to Nash. “You need to tell me specifically what you want before I can agree to anything.” One side of Nash’s lip kicked up. “Her. The pixie-human. Give me her.” Dex frowned, then scratched his head. Why would Nash ask him to give up the pixie-human? The girl wasn’t his to give, he didn’t even know what it looked like. “Not mine to give.” Nash shrugged, “Then I won’t help either of you.”
Let me share some wisdom with you. There is evil in this world we cannot see. Not because it is hidden from us, but because our minds refuse to accept its existence. Once we are able to get past what everyone says should not be, it becomes our responsibility to stop the evil we now see.
This insight wasn’t given to me until a year after I lost the most important person in my life: Bryce Rowan. Now, after another death at the same spot where he died—the overlook, where the mysterious lights dance amongst the trees—I begin to wonder if they were accidents after all. Lucky for me, I’m not the only curious one in town. Cooper, a ghost hunter (aka chaser), and his sister Jada have moved to town and are starting to ask questions.
The more we uncover about my town, it’s history, and some of its current residents – people I have known my whole life – the more I begin to think there are those who would rather keep the evil lurking around town a secret. Even if it means more will die.

She was ashamed, useless… helpless. She never used to be.
It started with Piggy. It escalated with Kitty. It ends with Puppy.
For almost a year, Ethen O’Dowell has been locked behind bars and yet Puppy is far from free. A legal ward of her parents, she shares her bedroom with Pony, the only part of her old, submissive life that she has left… apart from the guilt, the fear, and the weekly punishments Ethen dishes out every time they visit him. Escape is all Puppy dreams about. Escape and somehow finding the courage to once more become the person she used to be–someone who lived life on her own terms and never let herself be afraid. Sadly, those days are long over, and as the old saying goes, there’s just no getting them back again. Or is there?
It’s a dead night at Black Light when ex-military man Carlson Garvey decides all he wants is a quiet drink and some downtime to practice his Shibari. What he isn’t expecting is the petite brunette who plops down at his table, squeaks out a terrified hello, and promptly flees again. There’s a story here and although he doesn’t know it, Carlson doesn’t need to. He recognizes a broken soul when he sees one.
Sometimes the only thing a broken person needs is the right Dom willing to intervene.
Fortunate enough to live with my Daddy Dom, I am a Little, coffee whore, pain slut, administrator at two of my local BDSM dungeons, resident of the wilds of freakin’ Kansas (still don’t know how I ended up here) and submissive to the love of my life.

I also write under the names of Denise Hall, Darla Phelps, and Penny Alley.
It was a mistake. She shouldn’t be here. The bartender knew it. Spencer certainly knew it. Was he still watching her? A quick glance over her shoulder said yes, yes he was, and any minute now she knew he was going to place a phone call to Jaxson and Chase and then she was going to be loudly, humiliatingly, irrevocably shown to the door.
“Are you okay?” Carlson asked, startling her from the terrifying direction her thoughts were forcing her to travel.
She looked up at him, nodding. “Yeah… yeah sure.”
“Are you lying to me?” he asked.
The craziest tingle ran right up her back, interrupting the shiver that had preceded it. Her breath caught all over again, but not for the same frightened reason it had before.
His tone was so soft, and yet that hint of a warning underlying each word struck her as comforting in a way that–had Ethen ever said such a thing–would not.
She shook her head, another lie.
He tipped his head, searching her face for what, she didn’t know, but when his gaze dropped from her eyes to her chest and stayed there, reluctantly, she followed the direction of his stare down to her hands. She had clapped them one over the other on top of her heart between her breasts, pushing hard as if it that desperate press were the only thing holding her together. It wasn’t her heart she was trying to keep working, though. It was her lungs. Her chest was tight; her breaths weren’t coming in right.
“Are you sure?” he asked.
She was shaking. Puppy stared down at herself, completely at a loss. She hadn’t realized how badly she was shaking until she looked down and saw it. She took her hands off her chest and stared at them, watching the wild trembling that refused to hold still.
She looked at him again, at a loss for what to say.
Fake a relationship, date for a few weeks to make their crushes jealous, then stage a breakup.

Can what started as an illusion become a beautiful reality? Or will a simple game of make-believe destroy Gabby and Quinn’s precious friendship?
