Description from Amazon

My whole life has been defined by my illness
And after twenty-four years of trying to fight it,
I’m about to lose.
That’s when The Phoenix group approached me with a devil’s bargain.
They will pay my family one million dollars, leaving them a lifetime of choices instead of a legacy of debt.
And all they want in return is me.
But the thing about a devil’s bargain is that there is inevitably a price to pay.
I go from being a human to being a commodity. A test subject to be poked and prodded, broken and put back together again until my body finally fails me.
The only way out is to die.
So what will happen when the girl who has always been sick, inexplicably begins to heal?
With the odds stacked against me, I’ll have to place my life and my heart in the hands of a group of criminals,
Because the girl who was once ready to die will burn the world to ashes for a chance to live.

Triggers warning: This story contains themes that some readers might find uncomfortable.

Authors note: From the Ashes is an unconventional story about love and loss and the hard part in between. It is a Reverse Harem romance with multiple love interests and not a triangle in sight.

Temporal Locum by Wendie Nordgren
Description from Amazon

She thought it was a harmless piece of costume jewelry.
She believed monsters only existed in fiction, and magic was only sleight of hand.
She had no faith in the loyalty or love of men.

Bronwyn, a fashion design student, is learning that talent, hard work, and dedication aren’t always enough. Desperately grasping at the unraveling threads of her life, she hopes to prove her worth by winning the couture Halloween costume contest. However, a chance encounter on a busy street corner and an unfortunate accident change the course of her existence. Suddenly, she finds herself alone in a world of nightmarish, bloodthirsty monsters, and she doesn’t know who to trust.

Long ago, magic, unable to thrive but impossible to be destroyed, was forced to flee from our world. Bound inextricably with good, evil, light, and darkness, magic found a new home for itself and its people. However, to co-exist with the new world, magic required a host. When the burden grows too heavy, she passes the Temporal Locum to her successor, and until she embraces her powers, the world is cast into chaos.

Warring religious factions scour the land, searching for the goddess of time reincarnate, the host of the Temporal Locum, the conduit for magic. They must find her before the monsters kill her. Unfortunately, the new goddess trusts no one, not the Solis sun worshippers who kidnap females, or the Umbra moon worshippers who mask themselves like demons and whose sorcerers wield black magic.

While keeping her identity a secret, she flees not only the monsters but also capture. However, Solis and Umbra males unwittingly aid her, making her question her perceptions of good and evil while the attraction she feels for them confuses her heart. To stop the female sacrifices, she’ll have to reveal her identity either to the soldiers of the light or the devils of the dark, but to do so she’ll have to survive and decide who to trust.

Disguising herself as a boy in order to board a longboat headed north seemed to Princess Ingrid like a good way to escape being married off against her will, until her deception was discovered. Now three battle-hardened Vikings are set on teaching her a stern lesson, and stripping the princess bare for a painful, humiliating spanking is just the beginning of their plans for her.

Though the punishment infuriates Ingrid, her body’s response to the shameful chastisement is undeniable, and when she is claimed for the first time she cannot help crying out with pleasure.

One girl. Transported to a realm full of magic and paranormal creatures. A rare pure power. Seven hunky men. A fairy tale with a twist.

My name is Alfie. I’m nothing special. Just your average nineteen-year-old girl doing her best at life. Then that happens.

Of Shadows and Fire (2 book series) by Meg Xuemei X
Description from Amazon

From Book 1:

“What’s happening to me?” I shivered in want.

“You’re going into heat,” Elijah whispered, his eyes shining liquid blue, his face twisting with restraint. “The mating call is in my blood, too. My control is slipping.”

His words didn’t make sense, but it no longer mattered. Lust burned through me like wildfire. In its wake, nothing could survive, except my savage need for this archangel.

I must take him raw and hard until he couldn’t take it, and then, I’d still have him, marking him as mine over and over. He’d beg and scream, but I still wouldn’t stop.

Three smoking-hot, powerful immortals hunt me in Hell.

A primordial vampire.
A Fae prince.
A Sváva archangel.

They claim I shouldn’t be a gladiator slave as I’m the lost queen of Atlantis. They say I’m their fated mate.

Their reckless words make no sense, until they awaken a power within me. Now it demands to relentlessly mate with all three sexy warriors.

This is a full-length reverse harem fantasy romance that features a lost princess and her four fated powerful mates. It contains battles, explicit love scenes, curses, magic, dark fae, vampires, shifters, fallen angels, and a lot of demon assholes.

This is a complete duet. -Paige

The sinfully gorgeous members of the Student Council—Church, Ranger, Spencer, Micah and Tobias—can’t ever find out.

The Airluds Trilogy (3 book series) by Nhys Glover
Description from Amazon

From Book 1: Having grown up in a harem as the favourite, if not dutiful, daughter of the ruling Godling, Airsha knew what it was for a powerful man to have more than one wife. But for her to have more than one husband, when she would have preferred none at all, felt like just one more way her fate was being taken over by a vengeful goddess.
Rescued by four legendary airling trainers when she escapes the harem, Airsha finds herself drawn into an uprising that has rebels planning to replace the Godling with the Goddess’ Chosen One: Airsha herself.
But having hidden her magic to avoid being castrated, sneaked out of the harem dressed as her twin brother to learn to fight, refused to become her father’s human sacrifice, and broken society’s rules by falling in love with not just one unsuitable man but four, Airsha was never going to willingly follow the destiny someone else laid out for her. Not even if that someone was the Goddess of all Creation.
Some steamy (but wholly romantic) scenes may offend. Recommended for mature readers.

Description from Amazon

From Book 1: What’s my secret? That’s something I intend to take to the grave.
When my best friend and the only person who knows who–and what–I really am gets selected for the Mating Games, I know the only way to save her is to try and win her for myself.
All I need to do is navigate three trials while not letting anyone know I’m a woman, or, and this might be even more important, that I have magic.
Easy, right? Easier than slaving away for all hours of the day swinging an ax in the mines. Or so I thought.
I certainly didn’t count on the one man I’ve longed for, the one man who stirs feelings of femininity and desire within me, to enter the games as well. Every minute that I’m there I’m risking everything. If I’m discovered I’ll become nothing more than a broodmare, but I can’t abandon the woman who is like family to the fate that the Divine would deem she have.
I’ll do whatever it takes to save her from the desolate future of becoming nothing more than a prize for the victor of the games. The only question is, will my secret still be intact by the time the trials are over? Or will I have condemned us both to a fate worse than death?

Descended from the Seven Deadly Sins, these supernatural creatures have enslaved and tortured the human race.

I have lived my entire life fighting back against the monsters that have plagued this world. A deadly assassin and a member of the resistance, I only have one motto: kill or be killed.

When The Damning commences – a fight to the death against the world’s most brutal serial killers, assassins, and torturers – a twist of fate finds me as one of the competitors. Despite my initial reluctance, I find myself eagerly participating.

Devlin, a Genie descended from Greed.

Jax, a Vampire descended from Gluttony.

Killian, an Incubus descended from Lust.

Ryland, a Shadow descended from Pride.

Sebastian, a Mage descended from Sloth.

But who ever said I needed to follow the rules? If only I can survive The Damning…

This is a medium-burn reverse harem romance. Expect a kick-ass, snarky MC, seven swoon-worthy heroes, and a lot of bloodshed. This is book 1 in a series.

Rise of the Iliri (11 book series) by Auryn Hadley
Description from Amazon

From Book 1: When Salryc Luxx turned eighteen, she bit a military officer. That was the first step.

To humans, her species is just another resource. Seen as little more than beasts, the lives of iliri and iliri crossbreds are cheap and easily replaced. Sal was raised as one of their pets and has spent her life dreaming of the day she can be free.

It won’t be easy, but she has a piece of paper that admits her to the trials of the Black Blades, a group elite soldiers who do the jobs no one else can handle. Their success is exactly what she needs to prove her people are more than just something to throw away. Then a voice leaks into her mind. Evidently, there’s a lot more her species has kept secret – and the Black Blades have been hiding it in plain sight this whole time.

She’s going to have to change her plan. The sweet scent of humans, the lure to claim a mate, and her desire to see her commanding officer drop his eyes are becoming a problem. If she wants to prove that her people deserve freedom – that she deserves it – she has to stop acting like a beast. There’s just one little problem.

Humans aren’t her masters, they’re her prey.

Like all the books in the Rise of the Iliri series, this is a complete epic science-fantasy novel, without a cliffhanger. The female lead has multiple consensual romantic relationships as well as fulfilling friendships that matter to the storyline. Because the illiri have insatiable and exotic sexual instincts, the smoking hot sex may make it unsuitable for humans under 18. Due to the subject matter of this series, be aware of triggers for racial injustice, persecution, and various forms of discrimination. Like with many complex stories, things do not start out in a happy place.

This is a complete series. -Paige

Willow's Forbidden Pack (4 book series) by Avery Song
Description from Amazon

From Book 1: How do you thrive when you’re an unwanted, worthless, human female?
Simple: alter your reality by switching sides.

During the day, I’m William De Luca, the only ‘son’ of Roberto De Luca, the king of the NYC mafia and Alpha of the deadliest wolf pack — one this city doesn’t mess with. At night, I’m Willow De Luca, cage fighter champion with a slight temper problem.

Regardless of which role I’m playing, I’m plagued by the inability to shift, a condition that has Papa Dearest deeming me a ‘mistake.’ All the same, it’s worth enduring my double life if it means staying out of my father’s business and ignoring the growing legacy that’s waiting for me to claim.

Unfortunately, no matter how rich and powerful you are, the universe isn’t going to grant you everything you want. In Father’s case, it was having a son. In mine? Finding a mate.

Without an inner wolf of my own, meeting a wolf shifter who’s connected to me is essentially impossible. It’s a forbidden dream I’d all but given up on. Then my carefully balanced life is disrupted by the arrival of a new pack that intends to make me the target of a power play to take the De Luca territory. However, one glimpse of Dimitris, Neo, Saint, and Jayce is all it takes — I want to make them mine.

I’m willing to bet everything on a dangerous gamble, because maybe being a wealthy boy by day and lethal girl at night is the double-play I need to earn the grand prize.

THEM.

Readers are going to fall in love with this new, gender bender, enemies to lovers romance with thrilling action, suspense, and heated romance. WOLF AWAKENED is a 171,000-word Paranormal Wolf Shifter Romance with enemies-lovers/bully themes.

The fourth book is slated for release in 2022. – Paige

Amber: A Quirky Multiple Mates Romance (Jewels Cafe: Amber Book 1) by Mia Harlan
Description from Amazon

I’m in love with my best friend. But one sip of a spelled latte, and two shifters are calling me their mate.

It’s hard enough being a shifter with wonky powers, but opening a magical cafe with my secret crush? Maybe not the best idea. Hiding my feelings for him is getting harder and harder. And if we don’t get customers soon, our cafe will go out of business.

As a last ditch effort, we create a signature drink. One taste-test and the sweetest bear shifter is drawn to me like honey. A sexy bunny shifter offers me his carrot. They don’t even seem to mind that I randomly shift (and half-shift) into everyone I meet.

But can I handle more than one mate? And can we find a way to save our magical cafe before another spell tears us apart?

If you like quirky characters, panty-melting fated mates, and wonky magic, you’ll love this steamy, laugh-out-loud paranormal romance with all the feels!

Amber is part of the Silver Springs universe and comes complete with a happily-ever-after. Scroll up to read this fun, quirky romance today.

  1. Loved this list! Do you have other recommendations? Preferably ones where heroine’s disguise doesn’t get exposed early on and where the heroes start to fall for her as a guy.

    1. @Chelsie! Hey! Have you read Survival Knightwood Academy by Rowen Black? Sounds right up your alley! I’ll definitely add an undercover girl to the list 🙂
