I’m in love with my best friend. But one sip of a spelled pumpkin spice latte, and two shifters are calling me their mate.
It’s hard enough being a chameleon shifter with wonky powers, but opening Jewels 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 pumpkin spice 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 not just one mate, but three? And will we find a way to save Jewels Cafe before another spell tears us apart?

One girl. Five men. A deserted paradise island. What would you do?
Olivia Bailey is up for The Challenge. Why the heck wouldn’t she be? With mariner qualifications piled high, engineering experience to rival someone twice her age, she’s ready to take on the mighty Pacific Ocean and win.
But what about her fellow crew? Five guys, four nationalities. A billionaire’s heir who likes to take charge in every aspect of life, an outback expert with a heart-stopping smile, a Spanish chef with mouthwatering moves and sexy twins who reveal themselves slowly, until it matters, then they act fast.
An adventure was what Olivia wanted, it’s certainly what she gets. Because things at sea happen in a heartbeat, friendships grow, tempers heat and desire flares. But what about when it all upends? When the unexpected happens? Will they pull together, or will fear drag the crew of Temptress apart?
THE CHALLENGE, by award winning author Lily Harlem, is a reverse harem series best read in order and intended for mature readers. The series is complete and available on Amazon.
After Charlotte’s father died, her mother changed. She became cold and distant, and Charlotte slowly withdrew into herself. She spent years feeling lonely and insignificant, and rarely spoke more than a few words to anyone. One night, after a traumatic incident instigated by her mother, Charlotte is arrested and taken to juvie.
A year later, Charlotte’s being released from juvie for the second time. Instead of an awful group home, her social worker brings a welcome surprise: Charlotte’s long-forgotten uncle, Arthur, who is all too eager to help her after everything she’s been through. When Charlotte learns that Arthur has a step-son her age, she’s even more apprehensive. How could he not resent having a stranger thrust into his home and family?
To her surprise and relief, Sebastian is kind and friendly. He and his four best friends—Grayson, Remy, Liam, and Elliot—make Charlotte feel welcome. They never make Charlotte feel badly about her past or her anxiety. They make her feel seen. As she gets to know the boys, she realizes they each have their own issues and demons they’re fighting, and she forms a unique bond with their group.
It doesn’t help that they’re ridiculously attractive. How could Charlotte not fall in love with all five of them?
Ignored. Put to the side. All because I couldn’t communicate with the humans that I was surrounded by. All because I wasn’t surrounded by my own kind, my parents subjected me to the worst type of loneliness because of their own bias and history. That all changed when I turned eighteen though.
The day that I decided to pick up and move to Willowdale Village.
A place that signified the exact opposite of my upbringing. A place where I found my best friend. A place where I opened up my own business, a small ballet studio where I didn’t have to worry about whether I could talk to others or not. A place where people understood why I couldn’t talk. A place where everyone was different. A place where I met the Graves brothers, a family of wolf shifters, that planned on changing my life forever.
A place I now called home.
But what happens when my parents come to visit with an unexpected guest? One that not only wants to bring me back to where I grew up but place a very unwanted ring on my finger? I have a feeling that no one is going to be happy about this, least of all me, and the reaction of the Graves brothers is nothing to be happy about either.
The Willowdale Village collection consists of several standalone stories about the women that live in this supernatural town and their stories of finding themselves and love. You won’t find any dark romance here, only possessive alpha males and true happily ever afters. Each woman is absolutely unique and strong for their own reason. PNR UF Reverse Harem with +18 sexual content, swearing, and adult themes.
This collection of short stories has been created by the author in an effort to give back. A certain percentage of the first month’s proceeds (for each new novel release within the collection) will be donated towards a select unique cause.
Witches come of age when they turn eighteen—the age where they reach the full potential of their power and magical abilities.
Cricket Kendall’s birthday is a little more than a month away. She’s just moved to Emery Ridge, Colorado for her senior year of high school in the hopes her eccentric aunt Aurora might help her learn all she needs to know about becoming a full-fledged witch. Just a few days after moving to her new town, Aurora introduces Cricket to a young werewolf from the local pack.
Theo Ashbrooke is funny, charming, and super-freaking-hot.
Cricket and Theo connect right away, and it doesn’t take long before they’re spending almost all of their time together. The only problem is, Theo has two equally hot best friends:
Hollis Wakefield and Cas Seymour.
When a pair of magical skates helps me find my fated mates, the last thing I expect is to get rejected, betrayed, and framed for a crime I didn’t commit.
I moved to Silver Springs to escape my past. Fell in love with the small supernatural town. Made friends with its quirky residents. Even got my dream job.
But just when life’s finally looking up, disaster strikes. The cleaning company I work for falls under threat, and I’m framed for a crime I didn’t commit.
Then, I find my fated mates:
A shifter hockey player who knows how to handle his stick.
A sweet journalist who shifts into a block of ice but is oh so hot.
And a mage detective who already broke my heart once.
This should be the happiest time in my life, but my mates reject me, one by one.
As the new life I built starts to crumble around me, can I work things out with my mates and catch whoever framed me? Or will I end up broken-hearted, alone, and behind bars? Because I may be the best magical maid in town, but my life is one mess no spells in the world can fix.
If you like sassy witches, wonky magic, panty-melting fated mates, and intriguing mysteries, you’ll love this steamy, laugh-out-loud paranormal romantic comedy with all the feels!

“If they get through the summer without getting into trouble, I’ll pay you double.”
Those words changed my life forever.
I’ve lived on Tidewater my entire life, but not in the picture-perfect, oceanfront, mansions down on The Bend. No, I’m a girl from Backwater, on the other end of the island, where we live working for them; the SUP, or Summer People.
We don’t throw lavish parties, we work them.
We don’t play on yachts, our time in the water is spent on surfboards.
I’m a Backwater girl; a ‘Babe,’ who’s destined to live her entire life on this tiny strip of marsh unless I get to graduate school and can change my fate. But things never come easy for a girl like me. My scholarship falls apart and working at the bar for another summer won’t pay my tuition. That’s how I end up taking a job looking after one of the mansions on The Bend and its occupants.
Four spoiled and entitled men, who don’t know how to grow up.
They’re the embodiment of a SUP: Rich, selfish and reckless.

When the stakes get as high as the tide, will I lose it all?

High Life at the End of the World – book 1 of 3 in the Preppers series by C&V Guyer
The end of the world started the day the alien spaceships appeared in the sky. They killed the men and took the women. Doing things to their minds, taking away their memories and intelligence, turning them into mindless sex slaves. The men that escaped their death rays went underground, living as mole people. And I’m the only woman left on the planet.
Okay, so I’m totally messing with you. I don’t have a clue how the end of the world happened. No one does. Could have been a terrorist attack or it could have just been mother nature finally fed up with taking all the crap the humans were dishing. All I know is that for the first time in my 19 years on this planet, I got lucky. Real damn lucky.
While the Ragers (that’s what I call them, anyway, feel free to make up your own name) stumble about the world, growling, snarling and looking generally angry, I am sipping my iced lemonade on my pool floatie. Working on my tan and just catching some rays.
Yeah, the universe decided I would survive the end of the world when it had my cousin ditch her job to spend the weekend with her boyfriend. She begged me to cover her shift as a maid for some million-dollar house in a gated community. Me, being the good cousin, I am, agreed to poke through a millionaire’s things under the pretense of cleaning. Don’t deny it, you would snoop too if you had the chance.
So yup, there’s a pool, a giant library, an entertainment room and a state-of-the-art bunker completely stocked with food and supplies. Yup, you read that right! The millionaire is a super prepper! It’s seriously like the universe saved up all my good luck for one big life changing lucky break. But really, it can’t possibly get any better, right?
Oh, did I forget to mention the five hot guys that live in the community that could make even a female Rager stop and stare in awe? And did I mention the only other woman in the community is an old lady?
I’ll just be living the High Life at the End of the World if you need me.

She can handle working long hours, and self-preservation has given her a love of baking, so why not combine those two skills and open a bakery?

Only problem? Three sexy demons are determined to stand in her way. They want Adie for themselves, and they have one hell of a bargain to offer her in exchange for helping her to reach her dreams. But will she accept it?

You know that bitch from hell everybody talks about? That’s me. I mean that literally.
I was born in the seventh circle of Hell to two demons of noble lineage. Know what that means? Squat. My brimstone birth certificate and five bucks might get me a cup of coffee from Starbucks. The minute I was born, they handed me off to a wet nurse, sent me to earth, and left me to fend for myself. I suppose, I should thank them. They taught me at an early age that there is nothing in either world more important than self-sufficiency.
To survive, I needed money. So, naturally, I became a stripper.
Don’t judge, it paid the bills. A lot of them. And it provided a solution to my particular dietary requirements. I’m a succubus. We eat lust for breakfast. And lunch. And dinner. What better place to get it than a seedy, smoke-filled bar full of horndogs shoving dollar bills in your thong?
Life was good.
Then, I met Ryan and fell in love. He knew what I was and loved me anyway. I loved him so much that we got married and I gave him twin children. And then he died.
And left me alone.
Okay, not completely alone. He left me two kids to raise and a crippling sense of loss.
So, I did what any demon would do, I loaded up the kids and moved a thousand miles to start a new life.
Now, my Hell is in suburbia and the most evil things in my life are my home owners’ association and the PTA.
Maybe it wasn’t too late to go back to Hell.
This book is intended for mature audiences. 18+ readers only! It contains graphic language, sexual situations, and inappropriate humor. This is a fast burn reverse harem where the girl gets all the guys. Why Choose? Contains M/M and F/F scenes.
