Author: Cassia Brightmore
 Release Date: June 29, 2015


If your soul has been plunged into the dark depths of despair, how hard would you fight to claw your way back to the surface? Can the life you lost be restored, or is it destined to be forever phased out of existence? Fated to dissolve into a distant memory.

The Black Market—a ferocious, starving beast. An endless sinkhole of precious valuables; the playground for blood-thirsty power seekers. Only one thing feeds its hunger like no other…human life.

A sinister criminal ring has descended on the small town of Norton Springs, instilling fear in the residents. A vicious wave of disappearances coupled with the gut-wrenching horror of infants being ripped from the arms of their helpless mothers has the town quaking in terror.

When Gabe Thornton strolls back into his hometown, his main goal is to claim the one woman that has always denied her feelings for him—Nora Jacobs. The last thing he expects is to be thrust into a storm of devastation and chaos. Will his strength be enough to save them from the dark souls that threaten to destroy their chance at happiness?

Broken futures. Shattered dreams. Mind-numbing loss. When your heart has been ripped away from you—how do you find the will to go on?

No one is safe. Everything you thought you knew is about to change in this second installment in The Darkness Series.

Warning: Due to adult content and graphic situations, this book is intended for readers 18 and up.

Gripping Red’s hand tight, the two ran up the stairs, Brooke wincing each time one of the boards squeaked under the pressure of their weight. At the top, the door was open, a fact that had Brooke’s heart jumping up her throat like it was on a damn trampoline. Peering out, she ensured there was no one in sight before tugging Red forward. A few steps into the carpeted foyer, the sound of voices drifted towards them. Panicking, she pulled Red into what she thought was an empty room and shut the door.

Panting, she leaned against the door, trying to catch her breath.

“We have to hide here, Red. I’ll check if it’s safe in a few minutes.” When there was no reply from Red, Brooke turned her head, searching. “Red?” The other woman stood frozen, unmoving in the middle of the room.

“What are you—ahh…” Brooke stepped up beside Red, concerned why she was non-verbal. The room was not empty as she had expected. It wasn’t empty at all and the scene before them was a terrifying one.

Cots. Rows and rows of cots and each one was occupied with a tiny infant. Some were sleeping, wrapped in thin blankets. Others were squirming, having come loose from their bundle. A few were wailing, a loud sound that would make any dog in the surrounding area sit up and take notice. How Brooke didn’t hear them, was beyond her. The adrenaline was a roar in her ears, blocking out everything except listening for footsteps of anyone that might be approaching. A quick count revealed twenty-four cots. Twenty-four babies either stolen are birthed by a mother that was likely a prisoner in the same house of horrors she was trying to escape from.

Covering her mouth, Brooke supressed a scream of disgust. Children. Helpless infants all lined up and ready to be sold by the indescribable monster, Marcus. An auction straight from a mother’s worst nightmare.

“Red,” she tried to get her attention. “Red,” she said with more force. When that still didn’t work, she reached out and lightly shook her. The haunted, empty look in her eyes when Red finally acknowledged her, broke Brooke’s heart into a million tiny pieces.

“My sons. My daughters…” she moved towards the cots. “I—I have to find them. I—I—I didn’t get to—to hold them,” she stammered, peering over the cots at the tiny faces. Her heartbreak was written all over her face as she searched from cot to cot for her children.

Not being able to stand seeing her torment, Brooke rushed to her side, trying to tug her away. “Red, I don’t think they are here now. These…these are infants. As in just born, and you—” Red’s head whipped around to pin Brooke with furious eyes.

“Shut up. You know nothin’. My children are here. They are here.” Tears sprang to Brooke’s eyes at the utter despair in Red’s voice.

“I really wish they were, God, Red. But I promise you, we will make these bastards pay. We will find your children and make sure they can never do this to any other woman,” Brooke’s promise was fierce and true. She would shut this operation down, even if it killed her to do it.

Rough sex. Dirty talk. Criminal activity. Cursing. Fisticuffs. Closed course. Professional driver. Do not try this at home.**

Theresa Drazen wants to know one thing.
Is there something wrong with her?
Because from what she can see, she has money, brains, a body that does the job. Yet, she keeps getting shelved. Most recently, by her fiancé who happens to be the DA.
And she'll get over it, really. No problem. She'll just have a nice, short encounter with a mysterious Italian named Antonio who may or may not be involved with some kind of alleged criminal activity...blah blah...
Let's call a spade a spade.
He's a mobster.
Let's face a few more facts.
He's hot. He's smart. And if anyone breathes on her the wrong way, he's got no problem beating their head against a Porsche until they're willing to lick up their own vomit to make it stop.
Just about everything about that turns her on.
Yeah. There's something wrong with her.

I caught the scent again and looked in her direction, as if I could see the smell’s source. It could have come from anyone. It could have been the gorgeous black lady with the sweet smile. It could have been the plate of saucy meat that crossed my path. Could have been the waft of parking lot that came through the door before it snapped closed.
But it wasn’t.
I knew it like I knew tax code; it was him. The man in the dark suit and thin pink tie, the full lips and two-day beard. His eyes were black as a felony, and they stayed on me as his body swung into the booth.
The smell had come from him, not the other man getting into the booth. It was in his gaze, which was locked on me, disarming me. He was beautiful to me. Not my type, not at all. But the slight cleft in his chin, the powerful jaw, the swoop of dark hair falling over his forehead seemed right. Just right. I swallowed. My mouth had started watering, and my throat had gotten dry. I got a flash of him above me, with that swoop of hair rocking, as he fucked me so hard the sheets ripped.
He turned to say something to the hostess, and I took a gulp of air. I’d forgotten to breathe. I put my hands to my shirt buttons to make sure they were fastened, because I felt as if he’d undressed me.

Meet CD Reiss!  
cd reiss bio.jpg

CD Reiss is a USA Today and Amazon bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up, she’s at the well, hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere, but it did embed TV story structure in her head well enough for her to take a big risk on a TV series structured erotic series called Songs of Submission. It’s about a kinky billionaire hung up on his ex-wife, an ingenue singer with a wisecracking mouth; art, music and sin in the city of Los Angeles.

Critics have dubbed the books “poetic,” “literary,” and “hauntingly atmospheric,” which is flattering enough for her to put it in a bio, but embarrassing enough for her not to tell her husband, or he might think she’s some sort of braggart who’s too good to give the toilets a once-over every couple of weeks or chop a cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

 We have been friends for years. Lived together, went to college together and even pledge Greek houses that were related. I never would have thought that I would actually sleep with Grant. Sure, I've had a crush on him forever. I have just always assumed that he wouldn't be into me. One night, we actually slept together. Somehow, in my mind, I had us in a relationship. Imagine my surprise the next morning when he deposited me into my own bed. We haven't spoken in years. I honestly didn't think I would see him again. But sure enough, they have made Grant my partner and my attraction for him boils. The only problem: we both have changed too much. We are not the same people that we were all those years ago and the events unfolding scare the hell out of me. **Grant** I never thought I would see Chloe again. Never did I expect her to be part of an undercover IA stint at my PD. But sure enough, here she is and looking fine as hell. I'm determined to have her back in my life.

"Shit, shit, shit!" What kind of a dumb ass looses their kaegel balls in their pussy? I guess that would be me. I dig my fingers as far as I can into the channel of my coochie and I still can't feel them! Damn it. What am I going to do? I can feel my cushy walls close in around my fingers and I tense up. Fuck. I can't go to the hospital because of this. All I need is to explain to my mom and dad why I'm at a hospital. That would be like bonding for them. I hear the front door close and I tense further. Like a kid with their hand stuck in the cookie jar, I try hard to get my situation under control. Great, I can feel them but my fingers aren't long enough to reach in and grab it. "Hello?" I call through the bathroom door secretly hoping that my roommate isn't home. No such luck. "Chloe?" Grant, my very hot and sexy roommate, calls through the door. Is this because I'm a bad person or something? This is fucking horrible. I slam my free hand on the door to keep it from opening and close my eyes. "Promise you won't laugh?" I whisper through the door. "Come on, sweet thing. We've known each other forever. Hell, I've bought you tampons!" It's true. I'm twenty-one years old and I still forget the damn things! "Can you come in here?" I whisper and slightly hope this is a dream. Grant pushes on the door and his gorgeous face rakes over my body and settles on where my fingers are. "Chlo, what the hell are you doing?" He yells and pushes himself out of the bathroom. His dark blond hair is shaggy and falls into his even darker eyes. If my parents didn't love him, they would say he didn't have a soul. I think he's fucking hot as hell. Of course, I always dreamed one day I would be naked in front of him. This is just not how I thought it would happen. "No, no, no! I need help! My kaegel balls got stuck and I need help getting them out!" I tenderly take my fingers out of my pussy and run my hand under cold water. He leans his long and lean body against the door and I can't help but scan my eyes over him. He's so gorgeous and I don't even think he realizes how many girls are obsessed with him. "I won't tell anyone, I know you don't like me like that, but, I just need help, please help me?" I beg while grabbing a towel to cover up my nakedness. "What the hell do you have stuck in your pussy?" He asks and tilts his head up to the sky like he's asking for help. I wrap the towel around my body and close my eyes. "They make my pussy tighter by having them in. It's... common. Many people use it. Please just help me?" I beg shamelessly. "I promise I won't tell anyone. I just really need help!" I can feel my naturally pale face blush ferociously as embarrassment creeps in. "What do I have to do?" He whispers and turns toward the door. Why does he keep turning towards the door? Am I that unattractive? Ugh! "Just reach in and pull them out." I brace myself against the counter but keep my feet on the floor. Grant walks up to me and looks in my eyes. I see the confusing and conflicting thoughts flooding through his head. He has always been the thinker and I'm the doer. "Are you sure?" I nod and he places his fingers on the top of my thigh. "You just want me to reach...up?" Again I nod. "And pull it out?" My body shivers with excitement and I clench further around the balls. Great, I bet I'm going to come. I've had a crush on him since high school but never acted on it. His group of friends have always treated me like one of the boys so I never thought I had a chance. "Just please, hurry." The first brush of his fingers had me jumping forward. Grant traces the outside of my lips before sliding his finger in further. He brushes my clit and looks at my face while he did it again. "If you, uh, get wetter... does that help?" Well, Grant, I don't think it's possible for me to get wetter. I shrug and keep my eyes open as he watches my face. "Well, I guess, I should just do it." I nod my head carefully and look at him as he watches his finger slowly dive into my moist pussy. I fight a moan and a hip thrust onto his hand. Secretly, I bite my lip so hard I taste blood and look at the top of his head. "Shit, the balls really work. You're tight!" I smile and then bite back a moan. Grant circles his finger inside me and I feel my walls close in on him with the delicious intrusion. Holy hell, that feels good. So good. I've wanted him to touch me and he's now where I want him. In order to stop myself from thrusting onto his finger, I look up at the ceiling and close my eyes. "Got it," he calls and I feel the balls that are connected by a string and his fingers slide through me. Once his hand is out, he holds the balls to me. "So that's what it is." I nod my head and squeeze my thighs together for some friction. I worry that my juices are about to run down my thigh. "Is this going to be weird now?" I ask and rinse the balls in the sink. Grant stands next to me and helps adjust my towel. "No. I mean it's not every day I finger my roommate." My body heats up with that statement and he walks out of the bathroom. Once I hear the door shut, I run out of my bathroom and into my room.

 I live in Michigan with my husband and three fur kids! I have degrees in history and criminal justice- so be prepared for some of that! As a cancer sign- I love the water, so be on the lookout for that! Water has a way of hugging your body and washing everything away. It's truly breathtaking. I probably go on walks more than I talk to people. Walking is a way of getting down to zero. I'm addicted to coffee but I've been pop free for almost three years! M&M's are my favorite and I also love trail mix. Yes, I'm the weirdo who eats raisin-nets with my popcorn.

Blog Tour On My Knees by J. Kenner

OnMyKneesBTBanner On My Knees comp final 
button synopsis
Jackson Steele and Sylvia Brooks continue to thrill in the second novel of a scintillating, emotionally charged new trilogy that returns to the world of J. Kenner’s beloved Stark novels: Release Me, Claim Me, and Complete Me.
I never thought I’d lose control, but his desire took me right to the edge.
Powerful, ambitious, and devastatingly sexy, Jackson Steele was unlike any other man I’d ever known. He went after what he wanted with his whole mind, body, and soul—and I was the woman in his sights. One touch and I surrendered, one night together and I was undone.
Jackson and I had secrets, dark pieces of our pasts that threatened to swallow us both. We couldn’t outrun our demons, or the people trying to tear us apart. But in our passion we found salvation, and in each other’s arms we found release.
I was scared to trust Jackson fully, to finally let go. Yet no matter the dangers that lay ahead, I knew I was his—and now that we’ve laid claim, there’s no more holding back.
On My Knees is intended for mature audiences.

button About the author
J. Kenner (aka Julie Kenner) is the New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly, Wall Street Journal and International bestselling author of over seventy novels, novellas and short stories in a variety of genres.
Though known primarily for her award-winning and international bestselling erotic romances (including the Stark and Most Wanted series) that have reached as high as #2 on the New York Times bestseller list, JK has been writing full time for over a decade in a variety of genres including paranormal and contemporary romance, “chicklit” suspense, urban fantasy, Victorian-era thrillers (coming soon), and paranormal mommy lit.
Her foray into the latter, Carpe Demon: Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom by Julie Kenner, has been consistently in development in Hollywood since prior to publication. Most recently, it has been optioned by Warner Brothers Television for development as series on the CW Network with Alloy Entertainment producing.
JK has been praised by Publishers Weekly as an author with a “flair for dialogue and eccentric characterizations” and by RT Bookclub for having “cornered the market on sinfully attractive, dominant antiheroes and the women who swopn for him.” A three time finalist for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA award, JK took home the first RITA trophy awarded in the category of erotic romance in 2014 for her novel, Claim Me (book 2 of her Stark Trilogy).
Her books have sold well over a million copies and are published in over over twenty countries.
In her previous career as an attorney, JK worked as a clerk on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, and practiced primarily civil, entertainment and First Amendment litigation in Los Angeles and Irvine, California, as well as in Austin, Texas. She currently lives in Central Texas, with her husband, two daughters, and two rather spastic cats.
