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.

Ripple Effect

by Keri Lake

Erotic Suspense/Erotic Romance


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.


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.
