Reverse Harems With A Slow-build Harem – Part 2

Hey all! Back by reader the sweetest of demands, a request for additional Reverse Harems that have a slow-build harem. That means that the following books will have a main character female (mcf) meeting her harem members, and the guys becoming hers throughout the book series. So not all the guys will be harem members at the end of the first book, or introduced to the mcf in book 1. This slow-build harem list does not refer to the build level of smexy times.

I do use a search algorithm that isn’t always one hundred percent perfect, so I try to contact the system service if they mislabel one of the books into the wrong category. All blurbs, and photos are verbatim and used from the others books on Amazon. As always, Happy Reading! – Quare Eligere

*Note: For whatever reason, Amazon hates me today. I am USA based, so my links should direct you to the USA amazon. However, today I am apparently on a world tour with Carmen Sandiego. May the odds be ever in your favor. I fuckin quit. lol

Life at the academy just got… messy.

I’ve always dreamed of getting into a top college, but after a stint in juvie, my school prospects went sideways fast. Now I work at a magic academy…as a janitor. Ironic, right?

Okay, so maybe I get a kick out of secretly solving the arcane equations the professors leave on the board for the rich, entitled student wizards. I’m broke, not stupid.

Except then I get caught by the hottest mage on campus…who ropes me into helping him and his three equally gorgeous friends win a decidedly screwed-up magic competition.

Easy enough, I think—until I start setting things on fire and getting chased by smoke-faced monsters and fighting side by side with four of the sexiest, most powerful wizards ever…and find myself—just maybe—falling in love…

With all of them.


Note: This is a slow burn, New Adult paranormal academy romance, and book 1 of 4 in the Twyst Academy series.

( I cannot confirm this one. I haven’t had a chance to read the series yet, but it’s on my tbr. I really hope the tag didn’t mix up burn/build)

Normal is relative, not universal. But in one single night, my entire philosophy on “normal” is changed forever.

One near death experience and one suicidal cat later…

Four mysterious men show up on my doorstep. The leader. The suit. The tech guru. The quiet enigma. They’re not with the police. They’re not even much older than I am. So who the hell are they? Who do they work for and why do they need my help to track down a dangerous thief?

My entire life thus far has been based on survival. If they’re willing to lift me out of the gutter, then I guess I’ve not no choice but to play the part.

They can keep their secrets … for now.

When my family died at the hands of a demon prince, I hung up my exorcist hat. I’d failed to protect them, and while I was willing to risk myself, the price had risen too high.
Now I’m serving up hot, fresh pizzas to everyone who wants them. I was the only person left to inherit the family business and I’m doing my best to keep it up and running in honor of my loved ones.
These days, my biggest challenge is telling off a rampaging customer, and endless paperwork. That is, until he shows up again.
Darius was the only guy I couldn’t say no to, the one who dragged me into the world of the occult in the first place. When he shows up and begs me to assist with an exorcism, I reluctantly agree. He’s still using me; because I’m the best exorcist around and he only calls when he needs my help.
Before I know it, I’ve got an incubus in the living room, a hellhound marking around my yard, and a demon prince who can’t decide if he wants to kill me or… you know. Not to mention the vampire and the nephilim I seem to have collected. Normally I wouldn’t work with the supernatural, but we all have a common goal. Prevent the crime syndicate from summoning a demon prince and becoming more powerful than we can hope to handle.
If I can keep my cool, it will be a miracle. If I can hold on to my soul it’ll be an even bigger one. No one ever claimed being an exorcist was easy, but to protect those I’m coming to love, I’ll pay whatever price necessary.

This book is intended for mature audiences. 18+ readers only! It contains language and sexual situations. This is a medium burn reverse harem where the girl gets all the guys. Why Choose? Harem members added as series progresses.

In the Kingdom of Blackwood, we are all pawns in the Storm King’s wicked game.

As a peasant, my life was hard, but my worries were few. My days were filled with mining precious jewels I couldn’t keep, scraping rock bottom just to afford food, and saving my accident-prone sloth from sudden death on the daily.

Then, a chance encounter with a dying stranger changes everything.
Suddenly, I possess the magical power of the gods.

When the Storm King finds out—and trust me, he always finds out—he asserts his absolute rule and demands I marry one of his four sons. Each of which is sexy as sin with chiseled physiques that rival that of the gods. But despite my undeniable attraction to them, they are still the spawn of an evil snake. Choosing a prince feels damn well impossible, and I hesitate at the very thought.

But the king holds the lives of all those I hold dear in his hands and promises to make them pay for my reluctance. If I partner with the Storm Princes, who have long resented their father’s tyrannical reign, can we find a way to escape the king’s twisted demands?

Or will our lives remain his to control forever?

I was so close to getting everything I wanted, an internship with my Uncle, an officer with the special-ops team.

If it weren’t for a stupid boy that had to go and make me angry, causing me to turn a certain part of his anatomy purple and sparkly, I wouldn’t have accidentally revealed to my family what I really was. What I had been hiding.

Now, my father is making me attend the school he headmasters, a stuck-up elite academy that will never take a bodysmith like me seriously.

Fate may have cursed me with six mate spots to fill, but that doesn’t mean I need to tell everyone my true purpose for being at the academy.

If I can survive the other petty circulators at the school that think they’re queen bee, and hide my own status from everyone, I just might be able to find the six men that I don’t really want.

They might think I’m inconsequential, but I’m determined to carve out my own happiness, no matter what it takes.

She has survived inhuman horrors. They will protect her at all costs. But can they save her from the monsters within them?

For years, the monsters who killed my family have held me in a cage. Brutalized and half-starved. Only kept alive so they can steal my blood.

Until one evening when four eerily gorgeous men break me out of my prison.

They offer me a safe haven under their protection. A soft bed, delicious food, and all I need to heal. I’m not used to this kindness—or the desires their smoldering eyes and strong hands stir in my body and my heart.

But these fearsome men aren’t really men. Like my captors, they’re fae who can shift into wolves. A curse gripping the faerie realm turns them wild under the full moon, and only my blood can cure their rage.

When I woke up this morning and went to my regular coffee house, I had no idea my life was about to change forever.

In the Ocelot Kingdom, feline shifters rule, and humans are nothing.

As a princess, you’d think I lived a blessed life. But like all second-born children of shifter couples, I am a lowly human. The most I can hope for is that when my older sister takes the throne, she’ll consider me unimportant enough to let me marry for love.

First, I have to get her to the throne.

After a devastating betrayal by our father, I vow to get Camila the crown—now. To become queen, she must collect an amulet that contains secrets to the mating rituals of each feline clan. I’ll do anything to help my fragile sister gain the first amulet, even if it means seducing Lord Balam, a jaguar noble who’s as terrifying as he is irresistible.

As we navigate the hidden dangers of the feline world, I must decide how much I’ll give to get my sister to the throne. Because the next amulet may cost not just my body, but my very soul.

Welcome to Hillcrest University, where the guys are dangerous, the love is hard, and the consequences are killer.

I used to think it was my lucky break to nab a full-tuition scholarship to the ultra-prestigious Hillcrest University, but when I get thrown into a feud between ex best friends, I start to think differently.

Sawyer, the handsome ladies’ man who took to booze and drugs when he lost his sister. Declan, my new cute roommate who lost himself to depression after losing his girlfriend. Travis, the tattooed, mysterious outsider who radiates danger with everything he does. And who can forget Will, Decan’s older, more mature brother?

The feud between them isn’t the only problem in Hillcrest, though. They’re not the only ones with murky pasts.

Hillcrest was supposed to be a new start, but my first year is set to be a bloody one.

Hillcrest University: Year One, is a complete collection of Ash’s first year at Hillcrest. This is a RH series, meaning multiple love interests and eventual steamy scenes. This series contains dark themes including stalking and violence. This box set also includes a never-before-seen summer novella.

“My name is Lena. I’m not a God. I’m not even a hero. But this is my adventure: Through the Valley of the Kings to retrieve Pandora’s Box – stolen by the Seven Deadly Sins. Into the Evenfall Mansion to wage battle against a Fire Elemental. To the Akropolis to burn the awoken Nightmares. Through the Underworld to retrieve my soul from the rings of Chaos. Into Mount Olympus to face the big 12.

“At least I have the help of my friends who are gods.”

This isn’t your typical story about Greek gods. If you’re expecting to read about how a girl was fated for a god who will now love only her for the rest of eternity, or perhaps a goddess who had been waiting hundreds of years just to fall in love with that single boy and now her life is complete… well, this is not that story.

These gods are beautiful and they know it. They’re promiscuous and find no reason to hide it. They stay angry for hundreds of years, plotting their petty revenge for even the most insignificant of slights. If you’re a means to an end, they have no qualms about manipulating you to obtain the outcome they desire. That includes your death. Humans, as fun as they are for the gods, are disposable since their life only registers with a god for less than a heartbeat in their eternity.

Join Lena as she navigates her way through the world of the gods with all their beautiful temptation and frightening adversaries. She adventures through the deadly and enchanted. By her side, and sometimes in her bed, are her friends, an array of terrifying, gorgeous beings. And, increasingly, as she journeys through each book, her eyes are opened a little more to the truth of what the gods are: savage, unforgiving, fickle, and ridiculously promiscuous.

Except that, in the end, gods don’t actually have friends. They don’t trust each other or any other soul. So who Lena can trust in a world that has turned her life upside down is never really clear.

This is a full-length, 110,000 word, mature high school/new adult paranormal romance/urban fantasy (and a budding reverse harem) with the introduction of a variety of many different sexual orientations and situations that will be further expanded upon and explored in later books. This book contains plenty of WTF moments, friendship, sins, battles with swords and fire, traversing through hell, magic, gods, and a smidgen of MM. There is alluded to not fully consensual sex that the reader might not pick up on until book 2. This is book 1 in a (currently) 6 book series. The first three books are partially an origin story for the FMC. You may not see the harem for several books, but do not fret! It’s definitely coming. There will not always be a happy ending for many characters. Can be read as a stand alone and does not end with a cliffhanger but does leave unresolved plot points that will be picked up in future books.
