To say I had a rough start in life would be the understatement of the century.
My uncle may have rescued me from my abusive childhood, but he couldn’t save me from the neurotic and compulsive obsessions I would develop in my adulthood.
I deal with some of the worst criminals in the seedy underbelly of the world just to get what I want. What I need.
And what I need is the perfect woman. Perfect and pure in every way possible. And I’m willing to obtain that perfection…no matter the cost.
So when I make my newest purchase, I expect Adeline’s fate to be like all the others before her — taking what I want and then never seeing her again.
But she’s different.
Her beauty is disarming.
And even though I promised to let her go after I took what I wanted…I slowly come to the realization that I can’t.
I have to break my promise to her, because she’s mine now.
And I’m keeping her.

The new flu vaccine that was supposed to save lives turned humans into bloodthirsty zombies instead.
For the past two years, Trinity Sanders has found herself fighting for her life in an apocalyptic world she never imagined would exist.
After she’s suddenly caught in someone’s trap, Trinity thinks her fate is sealed. However, when she wakes up in a strange house and in a warm bed, she’s surrounded by other humans, not the ravenous monsters she was running from.
The four handsome men who saved her are rough, rugged…and wild.
They’ve lived on their own since the apocalypse, surviving on the land and claiming whatever they capture in their traps, which now includes Trinity.
In a world with no rules, you claim what you want…
And they all want her.

Note from the author: This is my first reverse harem/post-apocalyptic novel, and I will admit that it was not easy to write. I totally went out of my comfort zone when I wrote this book…and you may too when you read it, but I promise you I made it the best book I could in this new-to-me genre. I hope you’ll give it a chance and get a copy. It’s free on Kindle Unlimited!
If you have Kindle, or use the Kindle app – I recommend subscribing to Kindle Unlimited. I can’t speak to all genres – but I can say there are a tonne of romance titles available. For about $10 a month, you can read as many as you like, and if you aren’t into the title, you can simply return it!

I am well aware that these picks won’t be for everyone. They are “dark romances”. For me, that means that they often feature very morally ambiguous heroes. (I say heroes because that has been my experience with dark romances, but I imagine it can go…
