After my mom forced us to uproot our life and move to a fancy new town, I’m effectively the outsider. Still, somehow a charming jock and a dangerous bad boy catch my attention.
Not even a week into our new lives, something is wrong. The man my mom works for is hiding something, and I think my crush’s family, the Scotts, are a part of it. More than one person has gone missing here. Midpark might look shiny and new, but underneath it lies a darkness no one can deny.
I’ve been lied to, used and discarded. I can’t trust anyone around here. Everyone has their secrets…and some of them are deadly.
The rich have their vices, and when they have enough money to cover up their crimes, it’s always people like me who end up paying the price.
**Feisty is the first book in the Midpark High trilogy. There are steamy scenes, along with multiple love interests. There is an age gap, a bully/enemies-to-lovers situation, and a quiet psycho - along with a not-so-quiet one. Everyone in the book is 18 years of age or older. Just as a warning, future books in the trilogy will get darker.**
I’m Lola Harding. My parents used to call me their angel, but they’re dead now. For the last few years, I’ve made a name for myself—the Night Slayer. I stalk the clubs and make sure anyone with greedy hands and stupid ideas is permanently taken off the streets.
One night I happen to kill the son of a crime lord, and then everything changes.
They’re going to kill me, I know, but until they do, I’m to be their pet, wear their leash and do whatever they say. The Lucianos are a family full of psychos and hatred… and I just might fit in better than I ever did anywhere else.
And as a bonus? The other sons are the handsome and dangerous type, and even though they despise me for what I did to their brother, even though there might not be any light left for me at the end of this tunnel… I plan to enjoy the ride.
Buckle up, b*tches, because it’s about to get wild.
**Shadowed Heart is the first in a planned trilogy. It is an RH/Why Choose series, meaning there are multiple love interests, steamy scenes and some things you might find triggering: violence, mentions of abuse, etc.**
I thought coming to HU would help me move on from my past, help me get a good start on my future. A school for rich boys? Please. I’ve dealt with worse than them before. If they want to use me for whatever games they’re playing, they’ll have to try a lot harder than they’re used to. They think I’ll willingly walk into their feud, choose sides.
Declan is the tortured soul, the cute, depressed roommate who I’m supposed to watch over. Sawyer is the king of the school; everyone follows his command—and his money. Travis is…my kind of trouble: sexy, tattooed, a bit mysterious. Sawyer blames Declan for his sister’s death, but me? I know sometimes the ones pointing their fingers are the worst of all.
Did someone kill his sister? I know better than to assume their innocence. In a place like Hillcrest, you can’t trust anyone. Declan, Sawyer, and Travis? They all wear masks. The better question is: if someone killed her, are they going to come after me next?
These rich, entitled brats have no idea who they’re messing with.
**Loser is a darker romance, meaning there are topics that might offend you. Self-harm, suicide, stalking, and more to come in future books. Be warned.**
After being stolen for five years, my life is not my own. It’s unrecognizable. A new house, a new family…even stepbrothers. I’m the face America has prayed for, but I don’t want to be. I was safe when I was away, and now that I’m back in Midpark, the monsters will come out and play.
Cruel. Vicious. Evil. Everyone sins, but some sins are worse than others. Some sins just can’t be forgiven, and it’s only when they enter my life that I realize this. Handsome and dangerous, Zane and Thorn make me question everything I thought I knew.
Maybe I could have a life. Maybe I can ignore the darkness inside and forget the terrors of my past. Maybe they could teach me what love really means, how to fight back against the bullies in my life.
Or maybe not. Maybe this new beginning is simply my ending.
Sins is a dark standalone novel, centering around a girl in high school who’s never had a good life. There is some bullying, along with mentions of abuse and graphic violence. This is also a MFM romance, so be warned.
Daddy keeps me locked away. For my own good, he says. The world is a dark and terrible place, full of people who will take advantage of you, hurt you… maybe even kill you. I don’t know what he does, only that his clients are of the rich variety.
But one day he doesn’t come home, and I wake to find a stranger in my room.
Whisked away, stolen to a house on the outskirts of Midpark, I’m no more than a pawn, something the devil himself can control. Daddy crossed the devil, and now I’m to pay for his sins.
What is the devil’s name, you ask?
Markus Scott. And Markus will not stop until I fall in line.
This innocence of mine has no place in a hell like this.
**The Desecration of Innocence series will contain triggers. Violence and gore, among other things. This is the first book in a RH/Why Choose series, meaning our girl will not have to choose. The men in this series are not heroes, so if you need that in your romance, turn back now. You’ve been warned. Markus doesn’t play nice.**
The devil no longer rules the Dollhouse. I do.
The old me is long gone. The girl who used to pretend to be everything my parents wanted is dead. I thought finding my sister and my boyfriend together was life-changing, but it turns out getting shot is one hell of a wake-up call.
I need to go back to Hillcrest.
I need to see my family again… and my sister. To put them fully behind me, I need to show them the new me. And this new me? She’s a bit of an exhibitionist.
I like being owned. I like being controlled and put on display.
Lake caters to my good side, while Roman and Carter fuel the bad. All three make me feel alive, and together? Together we’ll give my family one hell of a show.
They’ll think their prodigal daughter has returned… but really, I’ll only be there to f*ck everything up, and I’ll do it with a smile.
It’s my turn to be bad.
Exhibition is a RH/Why Choose romance, recommended 18+ for steamy content and swearing. This book is not dark per se; however Roman and Carter don’t play nice with others. Expect some violence. Recommended to be read after Voyeur and the A Death so Sweet trilogy, as this book takes place after the events of both.
You know my name by now. I never was an angel, and I plan on proving that again before death catches up with me. I’ve killed countless, and before this thing is over, I’ll kill more. I’ll destroy them all.
The Bloody Princess wants me to kill the remaining Luciano sons, but what she doesn’t know is they have my heart, as violent as it is. Maddox, Sylvester, even Viper—I will become their instrument of vengeance. No one will touch them. I will burn this city down if I have to, even if it means I’ll be caught in the blaze.
I never feared death. I’ve searched for it all my life. The Night Slayer is about to go head-to-head with the new head of the DeLuca family. I wish I could say she’s a worthy opponent… but that b*tch has no idea just how brutal and crazy I can be.
No one threatens me or my guys.
**Violent Heart is the third and final book in the A Death So Sweet trilogy. It is an RH/Why Choose series, which means multiple love interests. Expect multiple steamy scenes, along with graphic violence and torture.**
I went from one prison to another, to a mansion hidden behind wealth and handsome faces. Here, there are no heroes, no Prince Charmings. Only men who aren’t afraid to kill to get what they want.
And what they want is me.
Markus Scott rules them all, but even with an iron fist, sometimes there’s rebellion. Something about my innocence draws these men and their dark desires to me, and something inside me calls right back.
This place, this house, these men—they will destroy me, even if I fall in line and do whatever they demand.
Angels don’t last long in hell… and neither does innocence.
**The Desecration of Innocence series will contain triggers. Violence, gore, kidnapping, among other things. This is the second book in a RH/Why choose series, meaning our girl will not have to choose. The men in this series are not heroes, so if you need that in your romance, turn back now. You’ve been warned. None of these men play nice.**
It’s me again. Lola Harding, the Night Slayer, the girl who f*cked up and killed a crime lord’s son. The Lucianos are using me however they like, and that’s fine. It’s kind of fun to never know when you’re going to breathe your last breath.
But… now they know the truth. My truth. My past and how ugly it is. The things that turn girls into their worst nightmares. I’ve seen the devil and smiled.
I’m not afraid. Not of the DeLucas, the blood enemies of the Lucianos. Not of the scheming or the plotting. Put me on a stage and tell me to sing, and I’ll give you the best damn show you’ve ever seen.
I do not fear death. I’ve been waiting for it my entire life. But Maddox, Sylvester, and Viper make my heart feel things it never has before. Cliched? You f*cking bet, but life has a way of laughing at you, giving you the things you never knew you wanted before stealing the rug out from under you.
We’re all on the same wild ride here, and we’re heading towards disaster.
And this time? This time it’ll be my fault.
**Crooked Heart is the second in a planned trilogy. It is an RH/Why Choose series, meaning there are multiple love interests, steamy scenes and some things you might find triggering: violence, mentions of abuse, etc.**
I used to be a good girl. I did everything right. But then I came home and found my boyfriend in bed with my sister, so I left, eventually finding myself at the Dollhouse—a strip club.
No good girl would be caught dead at the Dollhouse, but like I said, that was the old me. The new me?
The new me likes it dirty. Likes it rough. I like being put on display and watched… and he likes watching. He will do anything to take me as his own and make me his in every sick way possible.
He wants to own me. To control me. Roman is a devil in a suit, the kind of dangerous man who can bend anyone to his will. Together, with his partner in crime, Carter, he dominates me the moment we meet.
But I still have a mind of my own, my own wants and desires that include a sweet, kind, and dangerously cute neighbor of mine. If Roman wants to keep me, he’ll either have to cage me or bow to me once in a while.
Even devils can break.
Voyeur is a dark RH/Why Choose romance, recommended 18+. It is a standalone novel full of graphic sex scenes and a bit of violence.
An academy for lost souls and criminals? Not exactly what I signed up for, but as I’m about to learn, once you step within the halls of Grimmstead, you can never leave. As the days wear on, I find out that no one is innocent here. Not me, not the ruggedly attractive headmaster, and certainly not its dangerous, handsome students.
Me coming to Grimmstead was like a lamb running into a den of lions, only these lions are just as likely to attack each other as they are me. Mysteries lie within the heart of Grimmstead Academy, and I just might be the key to it all.
The walls of Grimmstead are painted with three things.
If you can’t trust your own mind, who can you trust?
GA: A Villainous Introduction is the first book in a planned RH trilogy. There is graphic violence in this book, along with steamy scenes.
Depravity. Insanity. Blood. Here you’ll get acquainted with all three very well.
Everyone has a secret; some are deadlier than others. Mine certainly are. The secrets of this place? You’ll find they’re much, much worse than you could ever imagine.
The darkness of Grimmstead warps your mind and twists your intentions. It makes you crave the wrong things and relish in sinning. There is no light here, only the pitch-blackness of oblivion.
It wants you, and it will have you. You cannot fight the inevitable.
And when it calls to you—which it will, mark my words—you’ll find yourself drawn to it just like me. Once you enter, you can never leave.
But the real tragedy is… you won’t want to.
**This serves as a collection of all three Grimmstead Academy books: A Villainous Introduction, Submission, and Defiant Rebellion. It is NOT an academy. Violence, steamy scenes (including some M/M), and swearing fill these pages. It is also a RH/Why Choose series, however that does NOT mean it’s genre is romance. This series draws inspiration from the old gothic works.**
