Best Dark Reverse Harem
All they had to do was accept her deal and Shadow would give them everything they could ever want.
Despite the privilege of being a mafia prince, Damien Chaos still lacked the one thing he desperately needed:
Absolute power and control.
If he wanted that, Shadow was the only answer.
Unfortunately the Shadow was a ghost and owed his allegiance to no one. Kidnapping his lead scientist was the only answer.
If Damien could possess her, if he could ignore how badly he wanted to carve a symphony of obsession into her skin…he could win the kingdom that was rightfully his.
They may call him cruel and psychotic.
Manipulative and ruthless.
But he refused to fail, because Damien was better at this game than anyone.
That is, until he met her.
* * *
All power comes with a cost, and that price was their pain and sacrifice.
The pretty mafia prince and his boys may think they have what it takes, but they could never breakher.
Desdemona was a ghost - a shadow, and the mafia could never get their hands on her.
Damien, Aeron, and Kaito were too beautiful for her to resist. All she had to do was let them think they were in control. Then they’d fall right into her trap.
They would become hers.
All three of them.
For the first time in their lives Damien, Aeron and Kaito would be forced to learn what truechaos really was.
This is a reverse harem mafia romance where the villain gets the girl. It has some dark themes including manipulation, stalking, kidnapping, and violence. This story also has MM.
Fight like a girl...or a shifter of lore.
After growing up with nothing, I've finally found my path to freedom: I'm a shifter, an elite soldier who transforms into a monster.
All I have to do is survive.
I didn't count on my three 6'5 roommates. Covered in tattoos, jeweled, and horned, these are like no men I've ever dealt with before.
They don't think I belong.
They don't think I'm strong enough for war.
They don't think I can fight.
I'm about to prove them wrong.
The only problem, can I survive them discovering the secrets of my past? In the battle for life and death, everyone is so much more than they seem.
Jax, Ascher, and Cobra are going to be devastated when they discover my truth...just wait until they see my shifted form.
Thoughts from Paige
I devoured this book and cannot wait for book two. The author was kind enough to alert me to specific themes/tropes, so a big shout out to the author; thank you!
There is so much to unpack in book one, and I loved the mystery aspect of it. I'm still trying to figure out the truth of what is going on. I am definitely sucked into this universe.
P.S. the author indicated there would be mm in this series.
My name is Ella Vance, and I’m not crazy.
Supernaturals are real.
No one believes me, especially my family who would rather lock me away for it.
Now I find myself in Mystic Harbor looking for a fresh start and that’s all in the past. This is my opportunity to find out who I am. No pretending to be the perfect daughter or worry about being committed for good.
Any hopes of flying under the radar are quickly dashed when I realize that I’ve caught the attention of quite a few residents, including the most eligible alphas Mystic Harbor has to offer and a few betas for good measure. Fate decided that mating an inexperienced omega with not one or two, but eight mates was just what I needed to help me find myself.
As I start collecting mates, magic I never knew I possessed starts surfacing. Of course, it’s as chaotic as my life and I have no clue how to control it. When my mates call for help it quickly becomes apparent that me being a witch is only the tip of the iceberg. However, even those secrets don’t help us solve the mystery of who and what I am.
Time is ticking, the town is in chaos, and my magic is only getting more tumultuous by the second.
Can we figure out what is going on in time or will my past come back to haunt more than just my dreams?
Mystic Harbor is a PNR omegaverse world featuring relatable characters, a crazy supernatural town, and lots of steam. This reverse harem series will include poly relationships.
Thoughts from Paige
I devoured this duet. This doesn't seem to follow typical omegaverse books, at least not the ones I am used to. I liked the differences; I also like when our MC collects mates from different 'species'.
Having my dad and Uncle Scott back at Sanctuary seems like a dream come true. Unfortunately, I still have to deal with my sister Emery’s delusional antics. If that wasn't bad enough, a blast from one of my men’s past intrudes on our haven, bringing their toxic energy with them.
A trip beyond the wall makes us face the direness of the world beyond our haven, and we find ourselves put in a situation where we need to decide to either ignore or step up.
It seems like life continues to want to trip us up, hoping we stumble. But I have news for life: if we fall, we’re getting right back up and facing it head-on.
***Beyond Haven is Book Three in the reverse harem contemporary series, Sanctuary. This is not the final book and does not end in a cliffhanger***
Thoughts from Paige
This is one of my favorite Zombie books. I only wish they were available in audio format! Cannot wait for the next book.
After a disaster of a first heat, I’m ready to swear off alphas and escape to a cabin in the woods.
My body has other plans.
Now that I’m awakened, I can’t survive another heat alone.
Problem is, I hate alphas, hate packs, and really super hate the so-called mates I can’t forgive and can’t forget.
Now my biological clock’s ticking too fast to handle, and I can’t wait on Wyvern Pack to figure out their damage.
I’ll take care of my own needs.
And if you can’t give me what I want, then get out of my way.
Because this omega bites back.

♥ Alert: Growly alpha males, no shifting
♥ Warning: Contains MM content, frequent cursing, references to past assault that may be disturbing, and a few alphaholes who need to grovel for redemption.
There’s ninety two dollars and fifty seven cents hidden in a Ziploc bag in the lining of the couch along with a double stack of polaroid pictures that might buy me some time.Every person who has met my husband thinks he’s the most charming man and would never believe what he does to me behind these four walls. And now, I see my five year old daughter’s arm in a cast. Something I vow never to let happen again.
Ninety two dollars and fifty seven cents. It’s not enough, but it will have to be.

On the run, living in their car as winter sets in, Avery will do whatever it takes to hide from a monster and keep her daughter safe. One good deed on a snowy night, changes everything.

Easton – carries the guilt of failure at losing half his unit in their last engagement. He sees too many parallels to his own childhood trauma with Avery and Chloe. His honor demands that he care and protect them. He fights his attraction to Avery with an iron will.
Zack – The charming playboy had his self-esteem gutted by the scars his body carries and the loss of his leg. One tiny girl has him changing his prospective on his injuries. Avery sees the man not the injury and the hole inside him slowly begins to fill with a love he never thought he’d have a chance at again.
Ryker – His sheer size and bulk intimidate and keep a safe distance between him and others. A man of few words, his main forms of communication are long drawn out growls and grunts. The tiny wisp of a girl cracks all his armor with her sweetness and her mother feels like a missing piece of his soul when she’s in his arms. When he finds the man who hurt them, he will annihilate him in the most painful way possible.
Kanga (dog) – The lady makes his pack happy and her female pup reminds him that there’s fun to be had, dimming the memories of bullets and bombs that took him and his pack out of the fight.
Nothing will ever be the same again.
Our Bonded Group has been torn apart, and the monsters are now the prey.
But we’re not going to just wait around for our enemy to strike; the blood on his hands is unforgivable, and the god living inside of me wants her revenge paid in blood.
And a thousand souls.
We have been pushed to the limit, tested in ways that have devastating outcomes, and paid the ultimate price. Can we recover from such losses? Is the promise of a world without our enemy worth the sacrifices we’ve made?
Can we prove to everyone, and ourselves, that together our bonds are unbroken?
*Tragic Bonds is a full-length reverse harem PNR novel with material that may be difficult for some readers. This book will end on a cliffhanger. It's recommended for 18+ due to language and sexual situations. Book 5 in the 6 book series.
