From the Ashes – A Forbidden Series Novella

I dance to forget, but I always remember
I taunt and tease, it’s why they’re here

The spotlights, the sleek silver pole
The stage is mine, I own the crowd

Until he walked in

Dark eyes pierce me
A devilish smirk scorches me
Memories brand me

One night was all I gave him
One night wasn’t what he wanted

Was it fate? Was it destiny?
Only time will tell…

It’s time to rise…
From the Ashes.

*This is a dark romance and is for mature audiences only. Contains explicit scenes intended for adults 18 + Includes MFFM and FMFM scenes.This is a prequel to Covet Book Two of the Forbidden Series.









Crave (Forbidden Series Book #1)


Samael

Can love overcome hate?

When I first laid eyes on the perfect little blonde, I didn’t think she’d change my life.
But the first time I tasted her, felt her, took her, I knew she was mine.
I laid a wordless claim because as much as I desired her, I couldn’t have her.

I craved the dark, she filled me with light.
I loved delivering pain, she craved it.

Opposites merged by circumstance.
Hearts melded by passion.

Angel

Can light defeat darkness?

I should have feared him.
Everything about him was drenched in the darkness he exuded.
But one glance into his cobalt eyes, and I knew I was his.
My heart allowed him entry, as did my body.
And after the first time, my soul recognized his.
Desired what he delivered.

I craved his darkness, he bathed in my light.
I submitted to his desires, he craved my very being.

Running from him wasn’t an option.
Fate bound us in its intricate pattern.

*This is a dark romance, suitable for mature audiences, 18+ ONLY. Strong sexual themes and violence, which could trigger emotional distress, are found in this story. Certain scenes are graphic and could be upsetting to some. This story is NOT for everyone. Proceed with caution. Discretion is advised. This is book one of the Forbidden Series, but can be read separately. Each book will feature a different couple. There is NO cliffhanger.








Love Beyond Words

Words can hurt, but they can also heal.
It all started with a letter,
Where two hearts found kinship,
And two souls found solace.

When hope is lost,
When you’re all alone,
When words are all you have,
Can love fight through the dark?

Two strangers,
One intricately woven twist,
One heart stopping discovery,

Will he love me when he finds out?
Will she love me when she learns the truth?

Mature audience only. 18+ due to adult themes.

Interview with Dani René:
 
  1. Can you tell us a little about your books?
    I currently have ten books available on Amazon, some are on iBooks and Kobo as well. I’ve got nine self-published on my Dani René pen name and one traditionally published in my second pen name Leigh Christopher. I write contemporary and erotic romance, and have recently started writing dark romances which I find more exciting and challenging, and even have a psychological thriller which was signed by a small publishing house late last year (2016).

  2. When did you know you wanted to write a book?
    I guess I’ve always known. I started writing from an early age, around 12 or 13 when I wrote short stories and poems. I didn’t think I’d ever publish a book, but I enjoyed creating worlds and characters to escape into. In 2015, I started writing fan fiction on Wattpad and from there my love for writing grew substantially when I got feedback from readers saying they were enjoying the stories. I then decided to take the plunge and self-published my first novel in December 2015. From there, I just haven’t stopped. I love what I do and because of the readers and bloggers who support me I’m thankful that I can continue doing what I love.

  3. Do you have a favorite character to write about?
    I do love writing about strong, feisty heroine’s and dark, brooding alphas. There’s no specific character I love to write, and if you have a look at my books you’ll find everything from dominant billionaires, to sexy rock stars, and filthy mouthed cops. I do love making sure my female characters are strong willed, stubborn almost, where they’re fiercely independent yet still need the hero to be there for them.
 
  1. Do you have a favorite food or drink you must have nearby when writing?
    Coffee! LOL! I turn coffee into words. I don’t normally snack when I’m writing, but if I do, I love having pretzels which are easy to munch on and I tend to finish a bag at a time while I’m in the zone. But I always have a large mug of coffee beside me.
  2. Do you have a favorite spot to write?
    I love sitting on my sofa. It’s practically molded to my body already! LOL!!! I find it more comfortable than sitting at my desk and writing. I also enjoy sitting outside on a hot summer’s day. Nature is always the best inspiration.
  3. What is a usual writing day like for you?  How is it structured?
    Because I have a full-time job, writing is normally done in the evening. I’ll generally spend about four to five hours from finishing work at 5pm, and I’ll write till 10pm. If work is quiet, I’ll pull up a manuscript and write in between. I’m lucky enough to work from home which gives me the opportunity to write when I have free time. There’s never any structure to what I do.
  4. For a reader who hasn't read your books yet, which book do you suggest they start with?
    That’s a difficult one, my debut is always my go to, however it does have cheating, so if that’s a hard limit for some, I normally start them off with something short and dirty, which is my novella I released in December 2016 titled, Cuffed. It’s short, but it gives the reader some idea of my writing style. From there I’d ask them if they prefer dark or contemporary romance. For the darker, I’ll suggest From the Ashes, which is a novella and has a few steamy scenes. If they prefer something sweeter, I’d suggest Love Beyond Words which was a more contemporary romance.
  5. If your fairy godmother waved her wand and whisked you away to the location of your choice, which place would you choose, and why?
    That’s probably the most difficult question ever!! LOL! I’d probably go with either Scotland, I was there a few years ago and it’s one of the most beautiful places in the world! OR, I’d go with a beach location like Cancun, or Belize, so I can relax on the beach and read.
  6. What are writing projects are you currently working on?
    I’m working on LOADS of projects. I tend to jump from story to story. I can easily write three or four books at a time. Now though, I’m focusing on a dark mafia romance which will be a trilogy following three brothers. I’m also working on a paranormal romance which will be a duet, and it will be my first PNR ever, so I’m a little nervous about it. And lastly, I’m working on a couple shorter novella’s which will be popping up sometime over the next few months.

Release Blitz for Silver Screen by Sheritta Bitikofer



Blurb:

When Josie Carter found out she would be the head makeup artist for the famous Rodney Bator, it was hard not to be a little star struck. Working on her first big movie picture was a dream for the small town girl from Arkansas. But, her natural passion for acting has been pushed aside for many years now after the accident that killed her eldest sister. Seeing life through the lens of that tragedy had made her apprehensive to accept anything good, including the kindness and love of the incredible actor she worked with every day. 
All Rodney ever wanted in life was to prove to other werewolves, like himself, that it was possible to live in the midst of humans and not have to worry about discovery. The old world superstitious ways were a thing of the past, but he still knew many of his kind that lived in hiding - including his own father. Sure that his message was only enraging the alphas of the world, Rodney was ready to hang up his actor hat and settle down. And he knew just who he wanted to settle down with.

About Good Lies:

Releasing May 8th, 2017


 

If Warren Price was gasoline, I'd be a lit match.
Addison Wanks, rock ’n’ roll’s favorite daughter, is good at keeping secrets.
Secret One
She’s responsible for the long-standing feud between her father’s band, Wanks and Janks, and younger band Wild Minds. She may or may not have let Wild Minds’ sexy bad-boy lead singer Warren defile her backstage at a concert. Okay, she totally did.
Secret Two
She’s supposed to be attending college but instead skips town to follow Wild Minds on their European tour. Addy adores Warren Price.

Europe doesn’t go so well. Her sexy lead singer turned out to be king of assholes. He’s arrogant, demanding and controlling. Addy loathes Warren Price. Oh, well.
Secret Four
Fast forward a few years and Addy is planning to attend her father's farewell tour when she hears the news—Wild Minds is back in the good graces of Wanks and Janks. The two bands will be headlining together. This is going to make avoiding Warren difficult. Especially since it seems Warren doesn't want to be ignored. He also doesn't want a divorce.

Excerpt:

Putting my head down, I decided to follow Ash. After all, Warren had said, “Get out,” to everybody. I was only respecting his wishes. That was nice of me. Considerate. I’d even collect my bags at a later time. Scratch that. I’d just buy all-new stuff. I’d use Billy’s card. He’d like that. Daisy could go shopping with me.
            My arm grazed Warren’s. Heat pricked along my side at the contact. He stayed as still as a statue, his body taut and tense. He was going to let me pass. Thank you very much. I was almost home free. Until his hand shot out and wrapped around my upper arm, his grip tight enough to halt me but not tight enough to hurt me. I could feel the warmth from his palm through my damp sweatshirt, burning me, branding me.
  “Not you,” he said, his voice hardening. 
            I shuffled back into the bunks, forcing him to let go. His stare went to my heaving chest. It felt as if the temperature had skyrocketed a thousand degrees.
            Warren advanced. His nostrils flared and his septum piercing, a thin silver band, flashed in the low light.
            I stepped back until I was pressed against a sliver of wall. Dammit, why’d they have to make these spaces so tight? Warren kept coming until he was flush against my front. I fisted his shirt. To push him away or bring him closer, I didn’t know. Then his fingers were in my belt loops, pressing me into him. I could feel his desire for me, his hardness against my stomach.
            “Warren…” I started.
  He closed his eyes. “Fuck, I’ve dreamt about you saying my name. Say it again,” he demanded. Always so bossy.
            “Warren,” I said again, this time more firmly.
He didn’t understand my tone or he chose to ignore it. Probably the latter. His head lowered and then his lips crashed against mine. He cupped the nape of my neck and begged entrance into my mouth with his tongue.
Something inside of me broke free. A need so fierce it bulldozed all my common sense, all my reasons against this, everything I’d kept tightly reined in for the last few years. I yielded to him. His mouth tasted like whiskey and chocolate, two of my favorite things. Warren groaned and it was like a tiny earthquake inside of me, the vibration snaking down to my belly and igniting desire between my legs. As if he sensed it, his kiss became hotter, wetter, more demanding.
Somehow, my hands found their way under his thin t-shirt, caressing his abs. Cool air hit my stomach and then the tops of my breasts. Warren was stripping me. He broke the kiss for one second to whip my sweatshirt and t-shirt over my head. Then he was back on me, his tongue in my mouth, his body shifting down and up, forcing my legs to wrap around his waist to keep balance.
He rubbed against my core. I made a guttural sound. His lips withdrew and then plastered to my neck. Oh, God, he still knew my sweet spot, right behind my ear he licked and whispered, “I knew you’d come back to me. I knew it.”
What? A cold sensation crept along my spine. Warren didn’t notice. He sucked the thin skin on my collarbone. I almost forgot what he’d just said but then he opened his big fat mouth again. “Are you sorry for what you did? Leaving me in Rome?” He kissed a wet trail down to the top of my breast. “You want me back, don’t you? Jesus, I should make you beg but I don’t think I’m going to last.”

Release Blitz for Good Kinda Crazy by Jettie Woodruff

Front Cover

Good Kinda Crazy by Jettie Woodruff is now live on Amazon!!

Introducing the talented and beautiful cover model, Jenna Lynn!!!

16110475_745560802286538_4786138501840109568_n
blurb
I would like to tell you a story about true friends, change, and real love. This is deeper than a love story, this is a connection you can’t possibly explain without first experiencing it, a love rarely found. When all I wanted to do was go home and put it all behind me, one chance meeting sent me in another direction. I traveled a road I could have never imagined.
Before you invest your time in our story, I should warn you, these people aren’t like your typical friends. These kinds of friends are few and far between. If you don’t believe in love at first sight, or second chance love, then you should probably skip our story.
I was written in him, he was written in me, we were written in the stars.
My hope is that you go into our story with an open mind and like me, find something life-changing you can take with you. Because one person believed in me, I didn’t give up. I became someone I didn’t even know I wanted to be.
For her. For him. For me. For us. For humanity.

"You naughty lil minx 🙈 Atlantis is one very lucky girl, definitely got my heart racing and my....no I say no more." 😉 "My husband may be buying YOU flowers tomorrow!" "Ok so as much smut as I've read in the past 5 years, how has NO one ever mentioned this??It's the hottest thing I've read in a long time and it's not even dirty. It's real, the connection...I literally felt it right along with her. I'm definitely intrigued and want to learn more about it." " I just finished chapter xx. Blow me away omg I can't even describe what I feel it was so intense makes me really think." "It's so amazing I don't want to miss a single word and for people who are unaware of the truth this is an eye opener."


 Excerpt
"I learned it was okay to just be me. I learned we’re not all the same and we’re not supposed to be. Most of all, I learned to love with all my heart and soul."
Good Kinda Crazy by Jettie Woodruff, ©2017
"Everyone deserves that kind of love, including me. The kind of love where you spend every single day building each other up. The kind of love where even a five-minute quickie behind a tree is more than just sex. The kind of love where cutting up veggies and doing the dishes together is a form of foreplay. The kind of love where kissing is your favorite thing to do. The kind of love where you can’t be near each other without touching. The kind of love where you connect so deeply it’s almost painful, in a good kinda crazy way. The kind that entwined our souls in and out of the Universe. The kind even death couldn’t separate."

About the Author
I've always been a writer and a storyteller, or a bullshitter as my dad would say, but I've never written what should be read. I'm very good at writing what my readers want me to write, but I did that. Now I want to write what they need to hear. If I can write a love story and entwine it with a little life advice to help make this a better place to live for all of us, then that's what I want to be a part of. My first book since deciding to be a part of the solution and not part of the problem is Peace, Love, Resistance. Why the change when I was doing so good? You get what you put out and I want to read and write what I want back. Simple as that.
Love,
Jettie
