From the Author
The first three works in this series (Bought, Ravel, and Recoil) were originally written as standalone works and can be read independently of one another. These characters' lives begin to come together in the fourth book (Owned). Owned takes place immediately after Recoil and three weeks after the end of Bought. Temper follows Ravel and occurs at approximately the same time as Owned.
In January 2017, I revised and re-released Bought, Ravel, and Recoil. The name of the series, 'Ripples in the Status Quo,' was updated to 'The Fate of the Fallen.' In March 2017, I revised and re-released Owned and Temper. In April, I revised and re-released Refraction. If you purchased these books prior to that time, please contact me, as Amazon will not provide updated copies.
About the Author
R. Phoenix (code name: Raissa) has an unhealthy fascination with contrasts: light and dark, humor and pain, heroes and villains, order and chaos. She believes love can corrupt, power can redeem and that the best of intentions can cast shadows while the worst can create light. She agrees with those who say that the truth is best told through fiction — even though fiction has to make sense while reality can be utterly baffling. Her dark paranormal books explore a world where humanity has become prey, subjugated by “supes” — vampires, werewolves, and witches — who have seized control. They range from romance to dark erotica to horror and everything in between, exploring different aspects of the Fate of the Fallen universe. She’s even published something she calls “playful dark erotica.” Her tendency to explore dark topics isn’t limited to a supernatural world. Her contemporary romance, Too Close, deals with the difficult topic of domestic violence. She is passionate about the need for greater awareness and understanding of an issue that’s often misunderstood. She loves chatting with readers, though she often awkwardly rambles. No matter how much she tries to keep her bad and often perverted sense of humor in check, it seems to escape at the most inconvenient moments. (Thanks, universe.)
