Her mother named her Esperanza Salvación – Hope for Salvation. But when a girl works as an escort for Colombian cartel in the ghettos of Spanish Harlem, there wasn’t much hope, or salvation.

Hope’s telepathic ability keeps her a step ahead of ruin, but her unusual gift attracts the attention of a psychotic vampire bitch. Trapped in a Manhattan penthouse with the psycho, she thought she was dead meat.

Her survival lies in the hands of Vampire Master Enrique. He seems to respect her, perhaps even care. As a measure of protection, he makes her his personal Bloodslave. Helplessly addicted to his bite, Enrique rules her every moment. As always, Hope must adapt to survive.

Swept into the decadent nightlife of Manhattan’s elite, she falls in love with Enrique and prays someday he may grow to love her, too. But is it simply a relationship of convenience? Is she nothing more than a concubine desperate to satisfy his nightly demands for blood and sex?

And forever in the background is the fear that one day the cartel boss she abandoned will hunt her down to collect on old debts.

My Rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars

Born to a race of creatures that strictly polices its presence among humans, Kris possesses a gift only one dragon in each generation may possess – that of a human form that requires no magic to maintain. Only to Kris, his form is a curse because it means he has spent his life without the touch of another since he left his mother’s breast.

Graced by his mother with the mark of his race and raised by a reclusive sect of monks, Kris learns his destiny, and the means to shed his affliction, lies within the slumbering depths of a long forgotten temple in the Sumatran jungle. To fulfill his destiny, he must lead a group of archaeologists there to awaken his brethren.

Kris has been a patient observer during the ritual, watching while the dragons of the temple’s court gathered sexual energy from the humans. But finally his part of the ritual is at hand. His task is to receive that gathered power through the same means it was taken, and serve as the conduit through which that energy will awaken their Queen.

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

The Nightlife Series is violent, sexy, and occasionally violently sexy.

Vampire master Michelle, and her slave, Aaron Pilan, leave the heartbreak of Vegas for a new start in Paris. Aaron’s mistakes in Vegas make him question everything he knows about Michelle, and the prospect of a long, lonely future with her.

Struggling with his predatory alter ego, Aaron chafes under Michelle’s rules. His animalistic desires drive him to take a lover without conditions – a bloodslave – but Michelle refuses.

Michelle is not blind to Aaron’s needs. She answers his demands by opening her heart and soul to him. Their minds intertwine and Aaron relives her dark, gritty tale of survival in the ravages of war-torn Paris under the German occupation. Her disturbing revelations are met with shock, pushing Aaron even further from her. For the first time, Michelle begins to reconsider the way she has lived all these decades.

And they are not alone in Paris. An investigator has shadowed them from Vegas, seeking the unique gifts of Michelle’s blood. He hunts the vampires, attacking them at their most vulnerable time. Michelle and Aaron face death and worse – separation.

Aaron and Michelle’s wicked, pulse-pounding tale drags readers breathless through one cataclysmic event after another.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tormented while growing up for being dark-skinned, and the son of a womanizer who deserts his family regularly, Ken Ferguson longed for that feeling of being loved. Ken promised himself that he wouldn’t be a manipulating, deceitful man like his father, but after being cheated on and dumped by the girl he thought he would one day marry, he begins his transformation. Fueled by anger, and tired of being the “nice guy”, Ken drowns himself in one-night stands, threesomes, affairs with married women, and sleeping with one conquest after another. He adopts the philosophy of having no commitment and no attachments, but meets his match with Ashley, a girl that makes him want to stop his promiscuous ways. But Ashley turns out to do even more damage to his ego and his heart, wounding him deeply. With his philosophy reinforced, Ken spirals out of control and becomes a MONSTER. Sleeping with and mistreating random women he meets at bars and clubs, Ken uses sex to forget about his insecurities, his anger, and his sadness. Will Ken learn to let go of his heartbreaks, or will he be consumed by them and continue to be a MONSTER?

Star_full48Star_full48Star_full48Star_full48

This is an intriguing and thought-provoking story of one man’s downward spiral.

“…trust me I’d have you speaking in tongues.”
In the past I would’ve never said anything like that. I would’ve thought it was rude, but the old me wasn’t working so I needed a change.

First of all, thumbs up to the blurb for this book – it really draws you in without spoiling anything. I cannot, in good faith, categorize this as a romance. There’s a lot of angst and self-discovery in this book. It’s erotica with a bite.

21 year old Ken is a hot mess in the wake of a failed relationship…

He’s tired of feeling inferior,
Not good enough,
Not handsome enough,
Not wealthy enough,
Not strong enough…

He’s learned a hard lesson.
Nice guys finish last and he’s done losing.

KENNY

“It sounds blunt, but it’s the truth. At some point we will all use somebody, and we will all be used by somebody.”

He drowns himself in every debouched sexual encounter he would have dismissed or despised in his previous life.

He’s not Don Juan… He’s a misguided college kid with a HUGE chip on his shoulder.

The dialogue was a little awkward and stilted.
Most of the story existed within Kenny’s mind…
– things piss him off
– things turn him on
– things stroke his ego
I’m willing to excuse the lack of grace, because I feel that the choppy nature more accurate reflects the thought structure of this young man.

As good-guy Kenny deteriorates before our eyes, the sense of impending doom looms ever closer.

It doesn’t take long before he becomes the perpetrator of all wounds he had once fallen victim to… He’s acting like a kid with nothing to loose…

Meanwhile, he’s watching his parents’ toxic relationship deteriorate. Ken’s devoted mother is wilting under the mistreatment of her husband… While Ken’s father’s behavior disgusts him, he can’t seem to draw the correlation so easily presented to the reader.

Time goes by for Kenny & he’s going through women like water. By the time he’s finishing his bachelors degree, he has a job as a personal trainer.

He finds himself wrapped up in a pseudo-giggalo role – fucking his female clients while their husbands watch…


The absurdity, angst, and sheer time involved are taking their toll on Kenny. He’s beginning to wish for that one perfect woman… Getting envious seeing happy couples around him… He’s built himself a house of cards and the collapse is epic.

This book is a stand-alone novel, written from the male POV, by a male author. It is brutally honest, emotional, and will leave you feeling raw at times. We start out rooting for Kenny the underdog, but as he transforms himself into a callus womanizing monster, the reader struggles to maintain hope that Kenny will pull himself out of the hole he has created.


Monster contains many subjects and situations which some readers may find objectionable:
Infidelity – lots of infidelity,
Promiscuity,
FFM Ménage,
Voyeurism,
Exhibitionism,
Hotwifing,
& several others I won’t mention to avoid spoilers.

If you’re looking for something a little different, this might be the perfect book for you.

Greatest Poet Alive – Revenge of the Orgasm

My Rating: 4 of 5 Stars

As you are driving, your body involuntarily jumps. Sweat begins on your forehead and appears on your body, even though it is the middle of Winter. Inside of your left thigh, there is a tapping that is not harmful but noticeable. And you begin to wonder if sanity has departed or control of your motor skills is no longer your own. Then, the epiphany becomes clear. This is Revenge of the Orgasm.

Star_full48Star_full48Star_full48Star_full48

A sensual and scintillating collection of Erotic Poetry from the male perspective…

I only think of you in between the blinks of my eyes.
But I have told you a falsehood.
Every other heartbeat, you inhabit my mindset as well. I
am obsessed with you.

It takes a massive amount of ego to decide to write under the pen name “Greatest Poet Alive” and as a reader its easy to see such a boast and declare that the outcome will fall under one of two categories:

1. The author will live up to their chosen name…
(or)
2. This book is going to fail spectacularly…

Poetry is a very subjective genre – I personally found this collection of poems to incredibly entertaining. The jury is still out on whether this is the “Greatest” but I’m pleased to say this collection is certainly worth the read.

There’s something particularly intriguing about the obviously male perspective giving voice to these erotic interludes… The collection of poems is a celebration of sex and the female form.

There is a beautiful rhythm to each and every piece, and the flow will keep you satisfied!

The diverse subject matter includes scenes of voyeurism, exhibitionism, light BDSM, and a few scenes of infidelity… In addition to heaping amounts of lust…

Excerpt:

Chocolate, Powdered Sugar and Strawberries

The strawberries were large and cool.
Powdered sugar was abundantly spread over the strawberries Warm was the chocolate because that is the scent it gave off. She licked, licked, licked, and licked the sugar from the strawberry’s skin 

Her teeth took a bite of the cool strawberry, and the juice tasted her lips, which her tongue wiped away. 
Then with her spoon, she scooped some of the warm chocolate onto her plate, dipping her strawberry into it fluently. 
What a combination…

The chocolate meshed with the strawberry, upon her lips coated with powdered sugar And with aggressive intent, I watched 
After she finished her third strawberry, her gaze captured mine. She asked what I was thinking. 
Again, I chuckled.

In another universe or another date, I would have told her the truth. The length and width of me was supposed to be the sugar she licked off 
My undercarriage and neck would be the strawberries she bit into And opposed to her dipping chocolate, I would dip, delve into her

Discretion overcame bravado I said none of that 
Besides, it was just our first date.

Q&A with G.P.A.

If you were to describe your book in only one word, what would it be?
Epic

What would you say inspired you to write it?
My encounters with several beautiful women inspired Revenge of the Orgasm. Also, I believe that ROTO gave me separated the distance between myself and whoever might be second to me. Plus, most books of sensual Poetry are fantastical. These are true events written as epic poems.

Have you ever been hit by the infamous “writer’s block”? What did you do to escape it?
Writer’s block is a myth. Never experienced it.

Your all time favorite book?
The Catcher in the Rye

What made you pick that one above all others? 
The story of this young man discovering himself was appealing to me when I read it. And it impacted me going forward.

What’s the longest time you’ve spent working on a project?
Five months was spent writing  my third book, The Mind of a Poetic Unsub. I did this because I wanted to throw a lot of poetic muscle at my readers.

Would you say becoming an author has changed you? In what way?
I have a great purpose in life that I didn’t have before. And for me to have people that wish to read my work is overwhelming.

What does your day-to-day life consist of? What else do you do, aside writing?
I play video games, walk with Scooter the Beagle, hang with my family, work out, and watch movies.

How do you deal with bad reviews or acid criticism? What would you advise other authors to that effect?
You have to shrug it off and take it evenly.  Otherwise, you will go crazy.

Is this title part of a series? Without giving us spoilers, of course, what can we expect from the next e-books/books in the series?
Revenge of the Orgasm is the third book in The Lust Series.

What do you have stored for us in the future? What are you working on/planning on next, aside this title/series?
The next book is “Summer with Bobo”, the sequel to the best selling “Hi, My Name is Bobo”.

What made you decide to become an Indie Author?
Poetry isn’t one of those genres that is highly sought after, so I really had no choice. But I dig it.

What would you say was the toughest part?
The toughest part of being an indie author is your budget is what it is, and that’s what you have to work with. From there, you do your promoting, traveling, hiring, etc.

Where is your work being distributed, Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, AllRomanceEbooks/ Omnilit, some other distributor? How did you decide which one(s) to go with?
Amazon. It was so much simpler than what I had been doing, trying to work with different people.

If you could turn back in time and do things differently, would you? What would you change? 
I would have married the right woman.  That makes all the difference in the world.

Fun Facts

If you could wish for any one thing, and it would immediately come true, what would you wish for? 
A million dollars cash, my family healthy and near me, my health, and Her.

If you were stranded on an isolated island, what’s the one book you’d absolutely wish to have with you?
The Norton Anthology of literature
