The evil lies little girls are told…

I had fallen down a dark and forbidden hole.
Wonderland.
A hole where I had two choices in life—to be a breeder, or to be a killer. To create life, or to destroy it.

I had chosen poorly.

Wonderland’s thermostat was all but frozen, leaving two opposing factions, the Pennas and the Cyans, to spread throughout the forbidding tundra of a land forever cast in a dark and deadly ice age, seeking only power and control now that Wonderland had become a frozen ball of ice.

In this frigid and cold hole, I was alone.

Until HE found me.
White Rabbit.

Rabbit was the leader of the Wonderland army, and I was now his captive. Forced to learn the art of submission, as well as the art of war, I became his soldier. From the moment I was captured, I became a mighty warrior amongst a cast of mad men.

But I was HIS.

And Rabbit would do whatever it took to battle my demons as we battled the enemy.

Hidden in the broken, and shattered Wonderland hid a new truth… a happily ever after. It was now my duty to find it.

Discover the recipe for love in this delectable new
standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author, Melody Grace!
Natalie Diaz believes that life is sweet. It’s why she’s
leaving heartbreak behind to start a delicious new chapter: opening her dream
candy store on Cape Cod. Goodbye, break-up blues, hello, handmade chocolate
truffles! She’s determined to make her fresh start count, which means no drama,
and definitely no distractions—especially not from the mouthwateringly-handsome
stranger who keeps crossing her path…
Luke Kinsella wasn’t planning on falling head over heels the
moment he stepped foot in Sweetbriar Cove. With his business on the rocks, love
is the last thing on his mind, but one look at the mysterious brunette sends
his pulse racing… And when he tries her sinfully-sweet candies, he knows one
taste will never be enough. He’s used to women swooning into his arms, but
Natalie is different. Sure, Luke’s smile makes her knees melt faster than
chocolate in the midday sun, but she’s been hurt before. She’s determined to
resist the heat burning between them and stay just friends. But as their
connection deepens, their red-hot chemistry becomes impossible to ignore. 
Can Natalie take a chance and trust her heart again? And
when the past she’s been running from finally catches up with them both, will
these two hearts find a way to build a new future together, or will their sugar

Loving Logan by Breanna Hayse

Loving Logan
by Breanna Hayse
Genre: SciFi Romance
Publisher: Twisted Hearts Productions
Publication Date: May 27, 2016
The Perfect Companion- The Perfect Man- The Perfect Lover-
The Perfect Dom…
Robotics engineer Dr. Kymberli Dalton is fed up with men. Period. After being betrayed by her most recent lover, she designs a robotic ‘toy’ based on the song; ‘Coin-Operated Boy’. This dreamy sex machine will be everything she wants: Lifelike, Overindulgent, Generous, Affectionate, and Nurturing. Most importantly, LOGAN will be hers and hers alone, able to fill every void in her life – and satisfy her hungry body.
Little does she know that the LOGAN A.I. program has its own agenda; it wants to become real and alive, and to serve her every need… which includes indulging in her secret fantasies.
Unfortunately, this ‘Pinocchio’ doesn’t have a magic Blue Fairy to turn him into a real boy, but he does have technology that allows him to step into her life as her perfect companion… with a strong dominant streak. True to the robotic law, LOGAN guards and protects her – whether Kymberli likes it or not – and that includes putting her over his strong, solid knee for bare-bottomed spankings… followed by unencumbered, breathtaking loving.
Logan’s protective love not only teaches him how to feel, but allows Kymmi to reconnect with her lost childhood and discover the joy of being a loved little girl…
Even though their secret is hidden in plain sight, the couple is soon faced with the biggest challenge they will ever have to confront. Will this unnatural love be allowed to continue? And if so, at what sacrifice?
Publisher’s Note: This book contains explicit sexual content involving machinery, anal play, spanking, dubious consent, bondage, minor BDSM themes, strong language, and graphic violence.
BDSM/AP lifestyler Breanna Hayse strives to give her readers truth and reality of the BDSM/Age-Play/Total Power and Erotic Exchange lifestyle.
Who am I?
I’m a native Californian gone ‘wild’, and had the opportunity to travel the globe and discover the world through the eyes of both a Marine Intelligence specialist and a BDSM lifestyler. I left the service to go into hospice nursing and grief counseling, eventually working as a marriage and family therapist for those involved in alternative lifestyle development. This experience has allowed me to gain unique inspiration for my books and offer realistic plots and relatable characters.
In 2004, my husband, John, and I joined forces to work with both submissives and dominants- teaching, training, listening and loving. Our goal was to take the mystery and fear out of the lifestyle and mentor people in safe, consensual and healthy relationships.
My first book, The Game Plan, was published in 2012 and opened the door to the now-booming world of Age-Play literature. Since that time, I’ve devoted my ‘spare’ time to writing, researching, community involvement, and private and group pro bono counseling in deviant behavior, alternative lifestyle, and addiction recovery.
I was formally ‘dungeon trained’ as a Domme before discovering my submissive side when I joined the service. My scenarios are pulled primarily from either personal experience or observation, including spending time in BDSM clubs as the safety/medical officer. My multi-faceted background allows me to glean from many avenues and give a unique and intelligent literary experience through elements of fantasy and fiction. I also discuss the questions and psychology of the lifestyle in a manner that is fun and informative, and based on ‘the real deal.’
I live with my husband, musician, and fellow-author, John Hayse, and two border collies in southern California. We practice a 24/7 D&S relationship with speckles of AP (and many trips to Build-A-Bear), and happily spend every moment together that we can. My hobbies include my puppies, hiding my vanilla salt-water taffy where John can’t find it, exotic art, collecting inspirational trinkets, and developing my own paddle line. You can also see me as a featured author/instructor in professional conference settings and as a Sexpert for kinkyliterature.com.

From me to you!

I’m late, but it’s a good thing, lol. I’m working on the third book in the Dragon’s Fated Heart series. My working name is Saving Grace, but Grace doesn’t need saving! I’m loving this book so far. I wake up thinking about it. Dream about it. Crazy, I know. I’m immersed in my own world.

Let’s see if I can find a section that isn’t too bad. Mind you, no edits are done. I haven’t read it over for rewrites or corrections. This is a bald and ugly section of my original concept. It needs more fleshing out!

Hmmm… let’s see…

Grace couldn’t believe it. How on earth could a place this big be hidden?

Rog’s groan made her belly twist. She wondered what so many rooms were needed for. They couldn’t be more tunnels. None of the tunnels had doors leading to them. Hark was striding toward the first one. The slap of his feet making Grace realize he walked barefoot.

“Don’t you have any shoes?” She squeezed her eyes shut, realizing how rude her question sounded. “Sorry.” This is why she didn’t people.

“He probably left them upstairs.” Rog shrugged, obviously unconcerned.

Hark was a big boy and he didn’t seem bothered by it. She shouldn’t be either.

Rog urged me forward. Grace sucked in a deep breath at the warmth of his hand against her back. Ignoring the flutters in her belly, she followed Hark, quickening her steps away from Rog. She didn’t quite move fast enough. His touch continued to make her ache in places she’d rather not think about.

“No, I lost them. Doesn’t matter. My feet are tough.” Hark pushed open a door.

Grace followed, slamming into his back, her attention more on the man behind her, rather than the one in front. And he stopped to look at the room they entered, creating a living breathing brick wall. “Sorry.”

“Check this out.” Sweeping his arm in front of him, Hark moved further into the room.

Grace’s jaw dropped. Fascinated, she walked further in.

Behind her Rog exclaimed. “Holy shit.”

She spun around the center of the room. Grace never thought to find something like this in an old abandoned mine. One abandoned long before the apocalypse.

“I want to see the other rooms.” She ran to one of the doors leading from the room. A light went on when the door opened. She stopped. Other than a layer of dust, and not much of that, the room was pristine.

Grace walked over, hesitantly touching the bed. She pushed on it. It was soft. This must be a mattress. One from before. She looked back at the door, hearing just murmurs of conversation. Leaned on it, putting much of her weight on it. Standing back, she couldn’t stop the grin crossing her face.

Grace clamored on top, stretching out, spreading her arms and legs. Like sitting on a cloud. Her head on the pillow, she let herself sink onto the mattress. So soft. She couldn’t stop the groan spilling from her throat. She never wanted to leave this bed. The room wasn’t drafty, muddy or wet.

“Are you okay?” Rog raced into the room. Stopping, he looked at her and grinned. “Enjoying yourself?”

“Um hm. I could stay here all day.” Grace wiggled, turning her face to Rog. “I’ve never felt a mattress like this.”

“You can, if you’d like.” Rog strode over to the side of the bed, leaning over her. Running a finger across cheek. “I’d be happy to join you.”

Heat streaked up her cheeks. She squirmed. “No, I want to see what else is down here.”

Rog leaned over and kissed her forehead. “If you’re sure.”

His grin twisted her insides, heat blooming from deep in her abdomen. She sucked in a breath, paralyzed. No one ever kissed her like that before, looking like that at her. The wicked twinkle in his eye sent desire spiraling through her body.

No, she wasn’t sure. She’d like to just grab Rog around the neck and pull him down on her. The look on his face told her he’d like nothing better. “Yes.”

Stepping back, Rog grabbed her hands, pulling her off the bed. “Up and at ‘em.”

Grace slid, leaning against the bed and trapped once again in his arms. She looked up into his eyes and sighed.

Rog stepped back, a smirk on his face, and the devil in his eyes. “Ladies first.”

 

Now, does this sound like Rog? He is trying to behave! lol.

The old and new world will be colliding in book 3. I already have the cover bought and paid for. I was going through book covers for sale and had to get it. So it’s waiting. I hate waiting! But since I don’t have a title yet, I can’t complain too much!

I’m anticipating a March release, as long as I keep moving on it! It is my NaNoWriMo 2019 project.  So were Stealing Hope and Finding Faith in previous years! I might as well keep it working for me!

Going to meet your boyfriend’s family should be exciting.
It’s a relationship milestone most girls fawn over, but not
me.
It means coming face to face with my ex that I left high and
dry in the middle of the night almost six years ago.
I wouldn’t call what Lawson and I had a love story, or even
a relationship.
It was tumultuous and frustrating more than it wasn’t.
His lack of respect for me and my background left me bitter
and angry in the end.
Now I’m stuck facing my past, that never got any closure,
and damn it if there aren’t brief moments that I forget why
I went running.
If I let him get too close I know he’ll try to burn me again
I can’t let that happen when I have Reece to lose.
The battle between the two men is a decision I face alone.
One holds my heart, the other holds it hostage.
Sometimes love hands you a choice you never wanted to make.

Excerpt
“I could date you.” He blurts it like he wants to get it out
of his mouth before he can take it back. It’s my turn to laugh at him now. A
disbelieving scoff comes from me and I just stare at him in horror.
“No,” I reply “Just, No.”
“Why not? It would work. The girls never bothered Veronica.
It’s only because they feel like there’s a position to be filled.”
“They may not have bothered her, but I’m sure that didn’t
stop them from still being up your ass. Plus you don’t want that. You don’t
want a relationship.” 
“Don’t tell me what I want, Farah.” For the first time he
sounds irritated with me, or maybe just this conversation.
“I don’t need you to do me any favors,” I tell him bluntly.
“God-damn, I’m not doing you a ‘favor’. I’m trying to do
myself one, I’m not ready to let go of you just yet. I want more time with you
and if that means we are dating, exclusively, then so be it.” He’s breathing
heavy, like saying that took a lot out of him. I just stare back, trying to
read into what he’s doing. Is this reverse psychology?
He stalks towards me, slowly, hesitantly and he reaches out
for my hand by my side.
“All I can think about is being near you. Just let me have
that.” His eyes are sincere, and I get the feeling he isn’t allowed to feel
this vulnerable very often. I nod to him.
“Okay.” Why did I say that? I didn’t mean okay. I meant ‘no,
not in this lifetime.’ I meant ‘go find some other poor soul to suck the life
out of.’ He’s practically a dementor.
A smile lifts to one side of his face. “Okay.” His other
hand lifts to my chin and he pulls my own mouth to his. His tongue finds my own
and it’s warm and inviting. His touch feels like magic that I didn’t know I
needed.

I might as well permanently add the label “Ex” to my name. I’m
an Ex-Mr. Universe. Ex-Mr. Olympus. An Ex-Hollywood Stuntman. But no one from
my small hometown cares anything about that. They only care that I’m the
ex-boyfriend to the beloved Mayor’s daughter, Elaina Dyker.
And now, ten years later, I’m back, helping my siblings run my mother’s
bakery while she takes on chemo. What should have been a routine cupcake
delivery turns into utter chaos when the bachelorette party thinks I’m a
stripper. And what’s worse? Elaina is the maid of honor.
But the meme about us sure went viral fast. My small hometown has become
positively infested with tipsy bridesmaids looking for my erotic cupcakes.
Now Hollywood’s knocking again–and this time they want me and my ex, Mr.
Beefcake, and Ms. Prude, to star in a reality show.
It could solve all my problems—except her.

I love coffee.
As an author and a story-teller, it is the lifeblood to which my ideas
take flight. And I believe in giving credit where credit is due. Occasionally
someone (ie – my husband) will try to secretly switch out my beloved regular
coffee for decaf. I always know the difference. ALWAYS (I’m looking at you,
SEAN).
I am incapable of achieving the perfect ponytail. I’m dyslexic. I can
never wear white without spilling on myself. And I’ve never read Pride and
Prejudice (gasp!).
When I was younger and stole my mother’s Harlequins to read beneath the
covers with a flashlight (seriously, did we ALL do this? I think we did.), I
wanted to read about the tough as nails heroine. The perfectly imperfect girl
with quirks and attitude and sass. And the anti-heroes who were anything but
“Prince Charming.” Forget the knight on a white horse… give me the bad boy on a
motorcycle.
So, now, I write those romance novels I craved to see on the shelves all
those years ago—the sassy heroines. The badass heroes. I spend my days in the
throes of my imagination and am loving every minute of it. I can travel
anywhere and become anyone I want to be. One day, I’m a mechanic in Boston and
the next, I’m a vampire stripping in Las Vegas.
Since penning my first novel back in 2012, I’m now an international
author with 15 published books, in a wide range of contemporary romance
genres–(Paranormal, New Adult, Small town, Erotic Suspense… you name it!).
After living for a decade in Brooklyn, NY, I took the plunge and moved to
beautiful (although kinda chilly) Portland, Maine. I now live full time in
‘Vacationland’ with a kind of mean cat, a mellow chihuahua, and a very NOT
mellow lab-pittie mix. Oh, yeah… there’s a husband who draws comics somewhere
in that mix, too.
I can usually be found in a coffee shop with my nose in my laptop wearing
fabulous (albeit sometimes impractical) shoes.
I love connecting with readers and fellow sassy storytellers, so feel
free to drop me an email at katana.collins@gmail.com or connect with me on
Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (@katanacollins). You can find a list of my
available books over on my
Bookshelf or if you’ve already
read a book, it would make my day if you wrote a review!
