SOUL REDEEMED (SONS OF WRATH, #4)

Genre:  Paranormal Romance

Being half incubus sucks sometimes. Sure, the sex is great, but getting hounded by females gets old pretty fast. Especially when the only one Calix cares about has gone missing, propelling him into a downward spiral of depression and abstinence.

Trapped by a wannabe mad scientist inside a nightmare of her own, Ava longs to be free, even if it means going back to the only male she regrets having betrayed. All she needs is a single opportunity to lead the way.

Calix should hate Ava for the way she deceived him and his brothers. Yet, when she shows up looking like she’s been through a hell of her own, the sweet relief over her return battles the bitter sting of her betrayal, and Calix can’t bring himself to turn her away. Not to mention, an incubus who’s starved himself of sex for too long is a detriment to everyone—including his brothers—and the way Ava commands his body is exactly the release he needs.

Unfortunately, thanks to the lunatic who held her captive, she’s now a walking death trap to any male that tries to bed her. But danger is closing in, placing Ava’s life in jeopardy, and if Calix doesn’t find a way to control his virile urges, he might just be her deadliest threat.

Erotic Romance
Publisher: Roane Publishing
Release Date: May 22, 2017

Keywords: Erotic, Romance, BDSM, Novella, Series, Bondage

Jade Matthews may be young, but she knows what she wants in a man--someone mature and kinky, a man who shares her deepest desires to have her pregnant and barefoot in the kitchen and submissively compliant in the bedroom.
Archer Brennan aches to unleash his dark side on the too-young grocery bagger, with her pert pony tail and glossy lips that makes him yearn for a taste. With an ex-wife and a messy divorce threatening to destroy his pursuit of happiness, he binds himself to one rule -- hands-off Jade's tight body until his divorce settlement is final.
A submissive must obey her Dom, but some rules were meant to be broken, and when one misstep threatens the dominant lawyer's life, will Jade defy Archer's hands-off decree or lose the only man capable of fulfilling all of her dreams?

Ripple Effect Episode Four

Erotic suspense/Erotic romance


Ripley

They call me RIP.
I’m a killer. A murderer. A psychopath.
In the eyes of the righteous, I’m a monster, born of sin and depravity.
I want to protect her, but I’m not a good man.
I want to love her, but I no longer feel.
She gets under my skin, though, and has awakened something inside of me.
Something I’d kill for.
I’m not her savior—not even close. In fact, I’m worse than the hell she’s already suffered.
I’m her vengeance. Tit for tat, as they say.
And if she’s not careful, I’ll be her ruin.

Dylan

For months, I’ve watched him.
I’ve fantasized him as my savior, my lover. My ticket out of the hell I’ve lived in for the last six years.
I never dreamed he’d be my nightmare.
Had I known what he really is, I’d have never gotten in the car that night, but life is full of cause and effect.
And sometimes the choice on offer isn’t a choice at all.
It’s the result of something already in motion, and we’re merely left to survive the ripple effect.

*This is an erotic suspense/erotic romance not recommended for readers under the age of 18 due to graphic violence and sex.

The Therapist Episode 2 by J.A. Belfield is LIVE!

Congrats to writer bud, J.A. Belfield, on the release of The Therapist Episode Two!  This book picks up where Episode One left off and introduces a whole new kind of kink into the storyline. 

 

From International Bestselling author J.A. Belfield comes an intriguing erotic romance serial …

Episode Two: After a successful and heated session for earlier clients, during which they’re introduced to Jones, a six-foot, tattooed sadist and founder of The Club, Chase prepares to break down the first barrier of his new client—a line she’s never dared to cross alone: Getting Abi O’Shay to discover the pleasures of her own body.

Series Synopsis:

Chase Walker: Founder of C.W. Consult. Sex therapist extraordinaire.

And, without question, always in control.

After years of schooling his emotions, Chase takes pride in his self-composure and firm lack of commitment. It takes only one, fresh-faced redhead in need of his services for all of that to fall to pieces.

Abigail O’Shay is everything Chase isn’t. Sweet. Innocent. A virgin.

Chase has never wanted to defile anything more.

Except, if that whole therapist-client barrier isn’t enough of an issue, Chase’s own demons are only too happy to cock-block all the sinful fantasies treatments he has in mind for his latest client.

***Sex Therapy contains adult themes of a strong sexual nature***

Look out for episode 3, coming your way in just two weeks!

RIPPLE EFFECT IS LIVE!

I feel like it’s taken forever to release this book.  I’d had the idea for a while, and finally stole the opportunity to start plotting and writing it toward the end of summer last year. 

I love jumping into the dark and somewhat crazy alpha antiheroes, so Ripley’s character was a lot of fun.  He's a cold and unapologetic killer.  And Dylan is unlike any other female character I’ve written before.  She’s smart, tough and feisty and totally gets under Ripley’s skin. 

I’m so excited to share their story with you!

Ripple Effect will release in 4 episodes, spaced two weeks apart, so you won’t have to wait long for each.  The preorder link for the subsequent episode is at the end of each book, too, so all you have to do is one-click and the next episode will automatically appear on your Kindle on the day of release.  So be sure to keep scrolling when you read!

Toward the bottom of this post, you'll find some fantastic giveaways so be sure to check them out :) 

Many thanks to all of my betas, the bloggers and readers who've helped polish these books over the last month or so.  You've made me love this story and these characters even more

Belfield has been a long-time writer bud of mine--like, back when I FIRST decided to publish my books--and she's been a great support throughout the years.  Today she's diving into a totally new genre with the release of The Therapist, an erotic serial that will be published every two weeks. 

I'm so incredibly proud and excited for her ❤️

The Therapist: Episode 1

By J.A. Belfield

From International Bestselling author J.A. Belfield comes an intriguing erotic romance serial ...

Episode One: Through self-imposed rules and a learned composure, Chase Walker takes a married couple on their first steps into bedroom communication. The same stance he takes with every client on his list. That is, until his newest client walks in and gives a whole new meaning to a hard day at the office. With a face full of innocence and a beauty she seems unaware of, Abi O’Shay might just be the first person to crack his professional façade.

Series Synopsis:

Sons Of Wrath News!

I’m thrilled to announce that Soul Redeemed will be coming to you sometime this summer.  I’m currently working on Calix’s story, with a March deadline, and so happy to be back in the Wrath Brother’s world! 

I've missed my demons.

As some of you may have already seen on Facebook, the covers for the series have been updated.  As much as I absolutely love the old covers, after three years, I needed a fresh new look, and I’m so excited to share the covers for the first three books of the series. 

To avoid the confusion of urban fantasy, Soul Avenged now features Kane instead of Ayden. 

I should have the new paperbacks at the Dark & Seductive signing this summer (along with Calix’s book!).  And of course, signed books are available for purchase on my website as well. 

So without further delay, here are the new covers!  Many many thanks to the very brilliant Clarise Tan for her patience and creativity.  She took a skeleton idea and brought it to life in these gorgeous covers.

Author Guest Post: Eye Of The Soul by Terri Rochenski - Release Day Blitz


HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY TO 

EYE OF THE SOUL!


Eye of the Soul
Pool of Souls #1
Fantasy Novel
By Terri Rochenski
Publisher: Roane Publishing
Release Date: January 9, 2017
Keywords: Fantasy, Medieval, Adult, Novel

Escape.

That should be Hyla’s first thought as her people are chained and imprisoned for no imaginable reason.

Instead, Hyla finds herself traveling through a land void of Natives, with human soldiers pillaging in desperate pursuit of her, and in search of the mystical Pool of Souls—home to the one man who can save her people.

Or so she believes.

Led by her faith in the deity Fadir, Hyla is met along her journey by Jadon—a human male and fierce King’s warrior, and his childhood best friend Conlin—one of the few Natives aware of his Fadir-given Talents.

Protected by Jadon, guided by Conlin, and with an unfailing belief in the purpose of her pilgrimage, Hyla carries on.

Like her, though, another searches for the Pool, and should he gain access first, everyone she loves, and everything she knows, could be lost.

Forever.

EXCERPT:


Cursing her arthritic fingers, Miri squeezed out a rag and draped it over the human man’s hot forehead.

“I’ve seen a lot more harvests than you, old goat,” she muttered, lifting his eyelids. “I’m thinking you’ll never catch up either. Doubt you last another half-moon’s phase.”

Miri pushed to her feet and stretched her hunched back. A heavy sigh slipped past her wrinkled lips as she glanced around the sick house. Keeping the night watch wasn’t too bad—she’d volunteered often since her old bones wouldn’t allow much sleep.“

Joints wasted, hearing all but gone …” Miri yanked on the long white braid lying over her shoulder. “I’m the old goat.”

She shuffled down the aisle, woolen kirtle swishing in the silence. A cool, autumn breeze rustled the crimson leaves of the magnolia and palm fronds overhead, drawing her gaze upward. Violet streaks lit the pre-dawn sky.A dog barked, yipped, and fell silent.

Miri peered across the village green to the thatched buildings beyond. A shadow passed between two cottages. Another three hurried toward the neighboring dwelling.

“Sight fading or my mind, too?” Miri rubbed her watery eyes, blinked, and leaned forward. Light flickered through the palm trees behind the outlying homes.

Torches?

The flames drew closer, weaving between the trunks.

Humans from the mainland? Miri’s hand clutched at her throat. Soldiers. Fadir have mercy.

The men crept through the village, taking up positions at every doorway. Two brutes, more horse-like in size than human, approached the sick house.

Sputtering torch held high, the first strode forward, dark eyes intent upon Miri. A green surcoat covered broad shoulders and fell to his thighs. The golden wheat sheaf of the city of Varosh adorned his chest.

Cold sweat beaded upon Miri’s brow. Breath burst from her lungs, and she moved back, clutching the door jam.

The second soldier stepped closer, chains and shackles clanking in his hand. He stopped two paces away from Miri, and a smile stretched his stubbled cheeks, revealing rotted teeth. “Good morning pointy-ears.”

Miri stared, heartbeat thundering in her ears. She’d been called worse in her eighty-three birth passings but never with such malice.

A single cry rang out across the village, and doors crashed inward. Screams rent the air.

“Don’t fight Native woman,” rotten-teeth sneered, shackles outstretched.

“W-why?” Miri whispered, taking a step backward.

A scowl narrowed his gaze, and his fist shot forward.Bursts of light and pain exploded through Miri as she crumpled to the floor.



ABOUT THE AUTHOR:


Terri started writing stories in the 8th grade, when a little gnome whispered in her brain. Gundi’s Great Adventure never hit the best seller list, but it started a long love affair with storytelling.

Today she enjoys an escape to Middle Earth during the rare ‘me’ moments her three young children allow. When not playing toys, picking them back up, or kissing boo-boos, she can be found sprawled on the couch with a book or pencil in hand, and toothpicks propping her eyelids open.

SURPRISE COVER REVEAL FOR RIPPLE EFFECT!

Surprise!

This month has been incredibly busy as I write Soul Redeemed and ALL FOUR episodes of Ripple Effect (I know … I’m a crazy woman), but I managed to squeeze in a cover design project in the thick of all that, and I thought I’d share a surprise reveal with all of you!

Many thanks to both J.A. Belfield, and my brother, Ryan, for their collaborative efforts in the design of these covers as well as their amazing talent.  I love the way it (they) turned out! 

As I mentioned in a previous post, Ripple Effect will be published in four episodes, as part of my Midnight Flings brand of erotic romance, priced at 99 cents each.  All four episodes will be available for pre-order and published two weeks apart so you won't have to wait long! 

The idea for this story actually came to me a while back as I was listening to a song by (my all-time favorite band) Deftones, called You've Seen The Butcher.  The darkness in this book mirrors the dark and moody tone of the song, and my male lead--Rip--is as haunting as Chino's voice.  Perhaps that's why I've been so excited to jump back into writing each time, ha!

So without further delay, here are the covers, blurb and a couple of teasers you’re welcome to share!  My writing partner, J.A. Belfield is also doing a surprise reveal for her episodes of Sex Therapy so be sure to keep scrolling down for the link to her site.

Something New Is Coming!

Happy Friday!
 
I have some exciting news! 
 
As some of you already know, J.A. Belfield has been my editor since Soul Avenged, whipping my stories into shape and fixing my seriously horrible grammar. Collaboration comes pretty natural to us – I don’t burn down cities when she tears apart my manuscripts and she doesn’t stab her eyeballs out with sporks when I make suggestions to hers.  (Well … not her eyeballs anyway, she needs those to edit my books.  Maybe she’s stabbing something else, but I’m not aware of it, if she does).
 
So a WHILE back, we decided to put our minds together and write a story.  How great would that be to have someone guiding me along as I go!  The problem?  She writes front to back and I write back to front (yes, I know … I’m completely back asswords).  Co-writing a book wouldn’t work because we approach it completely different.

Boo.
 
Then one day we were both discussing the direction of our writing goals and it so happened, we were on the same page, so to speak.   Again, we chatted about co-writing, but again, came to the understanding that I would probably leave her bald from pulling her hair out, and feeling stabby.

(she's the blonde, I'm the dark-haired one)

So we decided to collaborate a different way—write separate books under the same label.  There’d still be collaboration and brainstorming, but no stabbing or need for hair loss replacement therapy.  Yay!
 
I’m happy to announce a separate branch of my writing that will be dark and … steamier. It’ll be called Midnight Flings. 

I know what you're thinking ... "Keri, your books already have graphic sexual content.”

Yes, they do, but it in this case, sex will play a bigger role in the storyline. It’ll be an erotic romance, so you’ll still get the romance, HEA, etc., but the sex will happen quicker and is integral to the plot.

Imagine 50 Shades without the sex …

Yep, same thing here.

These will be published in episodes of anywhere between 20-30K words.

Best part?  ALL episodes will be available for preorder at once.  They will be spaced 2 weeks apart, so you won’t have to pull YOUR hair out, waiting for them.
 
Why episodes?

  • They’re easier to write and edit around our existing deadlines
  • They allow for more visibility on Amazon, as they’ll be priced at only 99 cents
  • I could use some practice in writing shorter books, don’tcha think?

Going back to the first point, I want to assure you, this will not affect any existing deadlines I have for my PNR and contemporary series.  Calix IS coming.  Dax IS coming.  Er … you know what I mean.
 
These books will include a number of genres too, from dark to light and contemporary to PNR and dystopian.
 
So for those who like the short and dirty reads, this will be right up your alley.  For those who don’t, you can expect all other titles will release as promised.

Top 5 Reasons To Come To SaSS in Norfolk!

Backfire released, as you know, which means it's back to work this week.  I really should be writing right now.  Well, I’m writing this post, so technically I AM writing, so I guess I should be plotting.  Anyway, the Norfolk signing is coming up, and and now that I’ve had my first signing and learned just how much fun they are, I’m REALLY excited for this one!

So I came up with FIVE reasons you should come see me in Norfolk this July (in no particular order, but I have no shame in admitting that I hope, as a whole, they'll entice you).

1.     I get to meet you and tell you how amazing you are and how much I love that you read my books ❤

2.     I’m going to be signing with two super sexy cover models who are dying to meet you and sign your books and take pics with you.  I mean, look at these guys … how could you possibly deny them?  

The answer is you can't.  Don't even try.

Need more?  Go visit CHRIS and JOHNNY on Instagram.  You're welcome.

3.     I’m giving away a tote filled with a Tshirt, a gift card and one of these gorgeous quote bracelets.

4.     It’s in Norfolk, Virginia, which is only about 20 miles from Virginia Beach!  And where there's a beach, there are a lot of under-dressed bodies walking around.

I'm totally kidding - please don't try to walk this.

5.     Two words:  FREE.  SHIT.  It's a swag jackpot! 

6.     Yeah, I know, I said five, but let’s not forget the most important:  BOOKS!!  There’s going to be like 80 authors at this signing!  Holy hell, that’s A LOT of books to decorate your shelves, my friends. 

If you’re already planning to go and have your ticket, I can’t wait to see your beautiful face!  If you’re not, all I’m saying is, think about it.  Take these five, no, SIX reasons to bed with you tonight.  Dream about them.  (hello, I did say two sexy cover models too)  Subconsciously talk yourself into coming down.  Because I really, really want to meet you ❤❤❤

Here's more info, including the Facebook group (click the pic) where you can ask questions, talk books and see all the fun stuff going down at this signing. 

#Backfire Is LIVE!!

It’s LIVE!!  <<<This always makes me feel like a mad scientist

I’m so excited for you to meet Jase!  He was such a fun character to write—fierce and reckless and sexy as hell.  Lucia’s character is a combination of my sisters, so she definitely holds a special place in my heart.

Like Ricochet, this book has violence and darkness, but it has some sweetness to it as well, that I’m hoping adds a little balance to the story.  Again, this is not a continuation of Nick and Aubree, but it’s set in the same world as Ricochet. 

I just want to say thank you to all of the bloggers and my kickass street team for helping me spread the word over the next couple of weeks. ❤ Early reviews are up on Goodreads and I absolutely love the teasers that readers have created!  Be sure to stop by and check them out!

I’ve got a couple giveaways going on below, including a chance to win one of FIVE SIGNED PAPERBACKS!  (Signed by me AND cover model, Johnny Kane!)

You’ll also find an excerpt from the book, the link to my Pinterest board (where I’ve posted lots of yummy inspiration), and my playlist.  So as tempting as it is to stay on the cover, be sure to keep scrolling down!!

 

BACKFIRE

By Keri Lake

Cover Design:  Hang Le

Image Credit:  Eric Battershell Photography

Cover Model:  Johnny Kane

Adult Contemporary Romance - Standalone

No matter how unbreakable he may seem, every man has a weakness.

A year ago, my home became a bloodstained crime scene. That night marked the beginning of my hell—the same night I was tortured by my enemies and tossed into an underground prison to die.

They failed. I survived.

Now that I’m free, only one motive burns in my soul: revenge.

Lucky for me, they think Jase Hawkins is dead. Maybe I am. I’ve got nothing but a cold, merciless rage, and Black Betty, the sharp steel blade that never leaves my side.

Then she drifts into my life.

Lucia wants answers—so much so, she’s willing to fall into the darkness where my enemies lie in wait, to kill her for what she knows.

Or to take her for the depraved fantasies her body alone can rouse in a man’s mind.

Me? I want her for the fire in her touch that feeds my addiction, forces me to feel what has become numb, but my appetite for bloodshed runs deeper than flesh.

For my own sanity, I’ve vowed to stay away from her. Because she’s my only weakness, an obsession that leaves me craving more—one that could make even the most steadfast plan backfire.

Book Blast - Cornered by J.A. Belfield

Available NOW from J.A. Belfield…

And the blurb:

Daniel Larsen is playing a dangerous game, and he doesn’t even know it.

 A two-wheeled speedster. A little redhead in a bar. Evenings spent away from his pack. Innocent enough for most, but for Danny, the combination leads down a path of destruction and straight to a hell he doesn’t even see coming.

Entangled in a nightmare that started with his own brother and the cat he brought into their home, Dan’s driving himself toward a solitary existence—except for the curvaceous Olivia Fanella. Seduced by his new companion, and happy to ignore the divide growing between himself and the pack, Danny is oblivious to the trap being laid out for him.

Before long, Danny’s integrity gets questioned. His loyalty gets questioned. Hell, he even questions himself.

On top of that, just when he believes life might be going a little better, he gets served the roughest shot he could never have imagined—not even in his worst nightmares—and Danny has no idea how to come back from a hit like that.

**Cornered contains scenes that some readers might find upsetting**

 CORNERED is available NOW.
