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

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.
