"A delightful collection of novellas that share common aspects but remain unique. Every story opens as a prologue in modern day America, but the following chapters are dreams of past times as different people. The epilogues brought the stories back to the present and provided a happily-ever-after. Definitely a 5-Star anthology."
"I wanted to stay in 1865 with Roane/Ryan, just as much as Kendrick/Kendra did. The author is a very talent writer and does a great job interlacing the past and present." 5 Stars

Now she's running for her life from wild boars, shape-shifting panthers, masked assassins and a decadent Prince intent on saving her. Together, they battle an army of hardened warriors bent on destroying the kingdom of Locke Cress. But how do they fight this all-consuming love between them---a love that transcends time and crosses all boundaries?
"Moments of intense action keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. The tender moments make you wonder how the hero and heroine will overcome such obstacles. Dust and Moonlight creates a whole new world with sorcerers and shape shifting men and the powerful Mage, that lives only to finish a story of treachery and love. There are actually three stories combined in Dust and Moonlight. The author does a great job with this story of wizards, sorcery and magic."
"In Dust and Moonlight, Diablo brings Kira to another world in another time. A land where her father once lived. Kira has traded one battle for another and is faced with the chance at love that knows no bounds. Her desire to go home is at battle with the desire to stay wrapped in Balion's strong arms of love." 5 Stars
"Dust and Moonlight is a captivating tale that includes magic, mystery, romance, betrayal, and, most importantly, love. I don’t normally like to read time travel books, but the way Ms. Diablo wrote the magical time travel scenes almost makes me believe it could really happen. This book is classified as an erotic romance and the sex is spine tingling."
Dust and Moonlight is a definite 5 star read that I highly recommend to any one with a love for romance, fantasy, and time travel.” Heather's Reading Romance
"Diablo has done a wonderful job weaving this tale of mystery, passion and adventure. With characters that are well developed, well rounded individuals the story flows well and you end up rooting for the heroes and booing the bad guys. Of course you toss in a definitely not typical history for the heroine's parents and it makes for one great story. This book was a real pleasure to read." You Gotta Read Reviews

The ride back to Richmond is long and hard. Will they make it there alive?

"Diablo has yet again delivered a steamy, hot Male/Male story that had me wanting more. Even after I finished the story. I’m hoping the author will find time in her busy schedule to write a follow-up novel on Gray and Max. They captured my interest from the very start and don't seem to be letting go of it any time soon."
"A very well written book. One becomes interested (hooked on) in the characters from the very beginning. She describes the scene so that you feel you’re there. I didn’t want to put it down. Hope she keeps the story going with a sequel." Got Romance Reviews

He channels one of the dead victims to help him unmask the killer.

Crossroads Showdown, Book 3
Tough PI Frank McGuire agrees to help the FBI locate three abducted children from a small town in West Virginia. When Frank channels his inner spirit for assistance, he mistakenly calls forth a ghost. As Frank races against time to locate the missing girls, he receives help from a dead spirit. Rand has learned to stand up to Frank and issues an ultimatum―commit to a relationship or risk losing his love when he returns from chasing ghosts.
Crossroads Shadowland, Book 4
Frank’s newest case takes him to the heart of New Orleans. This should be the perfect time to introduce Rand to the world of private investigating but the case is riddled with trouble. A century-old ghost kidnaps two young boys, and gay-haters stalk the streets of the city. Frank must enter another realm to rescue the young boys and venture into the seedy bowels of New Orleans to save the man who holds his heart.
“The characters are well written & well fleshed out. Their relationship is hot & loving. Frank knows Rand needs certain things in life to make something of himself & he makes sure Rand is well cared for. There are BDSM elements & a paranormal aspect but all of it fits with these two men. Suspense/thrillers are my absolute favorite reads & this series is suspenseful & thrilling & action packed all the way. My advice to you is to grab your copies of the whole series & plan on staying up late reading!” Amazon reviewer, Jo S. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“Diablo carefully orchestrates the scenes to include just the right amount of fear, stimulation & eroticism. The reader is instantly driven to not only see where the characters end up but also to find out the identity of the Black Rail killer. The reveal is not what you think & that makes it so much more enticing.” Our Top Review Award, You Gotta Read Reviews ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“The bottom line: I give this book 5 Stars! It’s well-written, rich in detail & the sex between the men is hot enough to burn. The ending was a surprise and tied up very well. Don’t let this one pass you by!” San Diego Examiner ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“The mystery portion of the story seems to be the back story, but I think the reader can decide what the main story line is & what the minor story line is. Bringing in a character that is integral to Rand & Frank’s past is fantastic. It allows for more emotion than instinct when it comes to unraveling the killer. A great read & definitely worth not only buying but reading over and over again.

Praise for Moon of the Sleeping Bear
"Loved the flawed characters and the many surprises in the book. Makes you think about what true love really is." S. Davis
“From love and first attraction, to war, murder and depravity. Family reunions, devotion and the heartache and love that goes with it. I read this in one sitting, I did not want to put it down as I was dying to find out what happened to just about every character.” Bonnie S.
“This is a wonderfully written story. Another fine example of how Keta's stories can cover many generations of readers.” Biggest Fan
“If you enjoy westerns you will love this book. I really like the way Ms. Diablo told the story. Off to read Book 2, Dark Night of the Moon.”
“Steamy historical. Very hawt sexy scenes! I loved the back story and was hooked right away. Lots of twists and turns & a gritty existence in hard times.” Mathpublisher
Interview with the Author - Moon of the Sleeping Bear
Q – Why did you write this book?
A –Many of the scenes/incidents in the book really happened in my ancestors’ lives. I found the true-life stories fascinating and knew somewhere inside these personal events, an intriguing story existed.
Q – Is this book part of a series?
A – This is Book 1 in a duet. Dark Night of the Moon, Book 2, is available on all venues now. Both are full-length novels with a HEA at the end of Book 2.
Q – Why should readers give this book a try?
A –If they like epic love stories, suspense, steamy sexual scenes, intrigue and adventure, set during a very turbulent time in American history, I think they’ll love both books. There are two heroines and both reside in a world completely foreign to the other. One lives on an affluent ranch; the other in the wild with a Native American tribe. That contrast makes for a very intriguing family saga.
Private Investigator Frank McGuire is beginning to think Baltimore is a melting pot for serial killers. Another maniac is stalking the streets but this time the killer is targeting gay college students.
When an enemy from Frank’s past surfaces, he sends his lover, Rand, away for his own safety. He has no idea the serial killer already has Rand in his sights. The clock is running.
Can Frank find Rand before it's too late?
The Crossroads Series consists of four books. All are scorchingly hot and blend mystery/suspense, romance and at times, the paranormal.

"This is the second story in the Crossroads series. After reading the first one, I was pleasantly surprised to see this story delve deeper into the sizzling romance between Rand and Frank. Their relationship is volatile and complicated and Diablo does a wonderful job of making her readers sympathize with each of them in a very unique way. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Diablo brilliantly weaves erotic sex and developing emotion with a twisting and turning romantic suspense. Oh, those kinky boys—I love them! I can only hope Ms. Diablo will titillate us with another chapter in this not-so-charming, but damn lovable couple.

Olivia Breedlove’s father couldn’t control her while he was alive, but continues to try even after his death. Thaddeus’ Will stipulates that in order to inherit her portion of his estate, Olivia must marry a respectable man of means within six months of his death. There’s one caveat, however – under no circumstances can that man be Morgan Gatewood.
It’s been ten years since Thaddeus banished Morgan, a notorious ladies’ man, for kissing a much younger Olivia in the garden during a family function. But now that Thaddeus is gone, Morgan’s back─and Olivia still wants him. She also wants her inheritance. A bit ahead of her time for 1850’s Savannah, Georgia, Olivia sets out to find a loophole to get what she wants. Her scheme to make Morgan jealous by asking him to help her locate her future husband─by escorting her to the local brothel so that she may observe and evaluate men with a talent for pleasing women─ doesn’t go as planned.
Morgan still has ravenous feelings for Olivia, but keeps them to himself as he doesn’t want to interfere with her inheritance. The stakes are raised with a killer on the loose murdering prostitutes in the brothel, and it appears that Olivia is next on the killer’s list.
Praise For Decadent Deceptions
“This was an immensely enjoyable and satisfactory read, it had a definite appeal to my romantic side. The book is erotica at its best, sexual, sensual, but allowing the characters to have emotions and sensibilities that heighten the readers enjoyment of the book.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“Many delicious and explosive elements! Diablo has created in-depth characters, and perfectly illustrates who they are, how they feel and what they desire. With drama and passion this story explodes from the pages & darn it . . . the author has left me breathless and longing for more!” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“Decadent Deceptions completely lives up to its title. The heat between Morgan and Olivia is exactly that, decadent, and the deceptions are around ever flower bush, literally. The sparks between the two keep you on fire throughout the whole book, and believe me when I tell you the ending is a shocker.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“I’m astounded by the author’s writing versatility (having read and loved Where the Rain is Made), and her ability to paint scenes so that the reader lives with the characters. Fizzing with mystery and sizzling with sex, there is never a dull moment in her books and Decadent Deceptions will not disappoint her fans one bit.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
"Simply put, I have found myself a new author. I am so surprised she hasn't been picked up by some big publishing companies. She has the talent and the skills to make it big! This is one author I will be watching for new releases in the future." ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
When a tragic accident claims her husband's life, Jesse Santos must find a way to keep the ranch, the only home her 12-year-old son has ever known. The ranch hands have abandoned her, a gang of cutthroat ranchers want her land and an ancient Yaqui Indian insists a spirit has taken up residence in the house.
After a fifteen-year absence, her husband's brother, Coy, returns to his childhood home. He doesn't plan on staying, and he certainly doesn't intend to settle down with a widow and her son…no matter how pretty she is.
He's an outlaw, after all, and made a decision to put an end to his gun-slinging days long ago. Will his conscience let him walk away from family, or will his heart overrule his head?
Praise for COMES AN OUTLAW
"I loved all the components of this story. The Indian lore was probably my favorite though."
"The story line is brilliant. This novella has many twists and turns. A page turner."
"Diablo has created a set of compelling characters. Jesse captures the essence of the time, when women had very few options, and even fewer good ones."
Baltimore cop, Frank McGuire, turned in his badge the day his partner was gunned down during a bank robbery. It was the second time the scum of the city killed someone he loved. When Frank was ten years old, his father was fatally shot while serving an arrest warrant on a drug dealer. He’s had his fill of criminals and the corrupt court system. Now he’s a private investigator, intent on bringing the lawless to justice…his personal, and often illegal form of justice.
Frank has a leg-up on finding the worst of the worst, the one-off murderers and serial killers. Thanks to his precognitive abilities, he can commune with the dead, and sometimes the dead find him. Now, the FBI wants his help to find The Black Rail, a serial killer that’s turned the city inside out.
Frank has a more pressing issue on his agenda…find the missing son of his dead partner. Rand Brennan has an identity issue, exacerbated ten-fold since the death of his father. He’s dropped out of college and buried himself in the seedy bowels of the city hoping to find himself. The stupid kid has no idea he’s walked into a lair of a serial killer.
When Frank finds Rand, the kid will pay for all the misery he’s caused his sister and mother. Imagine Frank’s surprise when he discovers Rand is no longer the young boy from ten years ago, but a full-grown man, the clone of Apollo with a body sculpted by Bernini.
Lust between Frank and Rand ride the crest of the dangerous situation they’re embroiled in. Killing has just become very personal for Frank.

I'll be reading more books by Ms. Diablo & must give this book 5 Stars." Talk About My Favorite Authors,⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The plot leaves you with the chills as you experience true evil and, then, relief when good intervenes. Hot passion & spine-tingling danger combine with the gratification and sorrow of the ending to produce a tale that will continue to haunt you even after you're done reading. We can only urge Keta Diablo to finish Book Five so we can see what happens next." CataNetwork Reads, 5 Stars. TOP REVIEWER PICK ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
"Crossroads: Shadowland is Keta Diablo's 4th installment in a series of novellas. If you enjoy a dash of the paranormal along with some HOT M/M action this book is for you. Keta Diablo is a great author and Crossroads is a wonderful series. I just wish her stories were novel length because she always leaves me screaming for more!" Top Pick, Night Owl Reviews ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
"Diablo writes gritty, emotional characters. Frank & Rand aren't on a sweet journey into love but one that leaves you a bit breathless and a bit abused. The sex is titillating and powerful. Their connection is palpable. I love how in each story, the author has upped the stakes for these 2 memorable men." Seriously Reviewed ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
"The paranormal element in Crossroads: Shadowland is not just ghostly this time but takes on a slightly more frightening aspect. Diablo keeps her readers on their toes & takes Frank's experience to a new level with the haunting at the Hotel Provincial. I enjoyed the intensity of this novella & will be looking forward to any additional stories Diablo might pen that feature this mismatched pair of heroes." Book Wenches ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
"Another great addition to the Crossroads series. Keta tends to dish it out on a platter, serving it up to give you just a taste with an unexpected twist & leaves you dangling with want for the main course & you haven't even hit on the dessert yet. In this one Frank heads back to New Orleans with Rand to crack the case of two boys gone missing at a local cemetery, only to discover there's more to this that meets the naked eye. What will transpire in this book will get your temperature soaring to unhealthy levels and I'm not just talking about the steaming sex scenes." Four Stars Sidney, Goodreads ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Tough PI, Frank McGuire, agrees to help the FBI locate three abducted children from a small town in West Virginia. When Frank channels his Inner Spirit for assistance, he mistakenly calls forth a ghost. As Frank races against time to locate the missing girls, he receives help from the dead spirit.

Warning: Like all the books in the Crossroads series, Showdown also contains explicit language and sex. This is a male/male novella that involves graphic sex between two consenting male adults.
"This book is a must have! If you read Crossroads and loved it as much as I did, you need to get your hands on a copy of Crossroads Showdown. This book gives you a deeper look into the tough PI Frank (which some readers have said is a bit tough and sometimes a bit cruel). In this novel, you’ll see a new side of Frank. He’s not a cruel man but someone who has lived a rough life. The suspense in this novel will keep you guessing about where things will lead Frank in the end as well as what will happen between Frank and Rand." Talk About My Favorite Authors ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
