If I should die before I wake...
Then my soul is Caesar's to take. He pulls me down, he lifts me up.
And then he leaves me in the muck.
If I should fall before I fly...
Then they know it was the fault of mine. He taught me better, he led the way.
I just didn't know how to stay.
And if I should not gain his heart...
Fuck that, he made me this way. Curled my thoughts and twisted me.
He belongs to me, forever.
WARNING: This book is DARK. So dark, I barely found my way writing it. Know this. Understand it. Believe it. It's one long warning from beginning to end, but the love found between the pages is everlasting. This is NOT a conventional couple, and they don't come together with rainbows and silver linings. There's pain. There's violence. There's blood. You have been warned. Please ... Please, walk away if a filthy dark story isn't right for you. You will find no softness here. But if you like it so dark the sun won't make you feel warm again, then you've found the right place, and Caesar is waiting.More info →
We were bred in darkness. How else would we come to love?
I was captured ...
That's just the beginning of my tale. I've survived Purgatory, abuse, and near death. In that abandoned farmhouse I nearly lost everything, but Jacob saved me. We were trapped in this hell together, giving each other the strength to hold on. I fell into darkness with my captor's son.
Until I left him behind.
She was perfect, my Alana. Brilliant and full of pain. She understood my darkness and fueled the fire. When she left, I waited patiently to find her, and in her honor, I killed men who took away from innocents.
Then I found her...
She's deadly now, a killer too, and perfectly mine. It was beautiful to behold, but she belongs in a cage. My cage. She'll love me again, or I'll expose her dirty secrets for the world to see while going down in flames with her.
In darkness, it's most definitely till death do us part.
Warning: This book is full of triggers. It's wicked dark, with created evil falling in love. People die. They are hurt horribly. The bad guys get away, and there is no apology for it.More info →

Irredeemable is the new title for Cutter. No content has changed.
One year …
All he asks for is one year of my life to clear out all the dirt, the muck, the messed-up way of thinking that makes me splice myself open for relief. One year of no Rani, no Pinnacle heirs, no reminders of the past, and all I have to do is say yes.
It’s stupid. I know better. To say yes means there is never a chance to say no. I won’t control anything in my life, least of all how I live. This one word utterly takes over, and I no longer know where to turn for help. My release, my painful savior the blade, is now gone. All that remains is Demari Sestra.
He always gives me a chance, a moment before the darkness to walk away. I can, I know it, but I never do. It leaves no one to blame but me.
Rani, I once warned you the world would break you if you let it.
Maybe I should have followed my own advice.
Note from the authors: Irredeemable was previously published as Cutter and no content has changed. While Irredeemable can be read as a standalone, the pieces may fall in place easier if Irrepairable is read first. Unlike Irrepairable, this is not a reverse harem, academy, or bully romance. Simply put, Allie's story is dark, twisted, and might make even the darkest hearts cringe. Remember this: most topics in the book are real-life occurrences and will evoke strong feelings. Proceed with caution and know you have been warned.More info →
Some damage cannot be fixed.
Love. Faith. Honor. Trust. Devotion. These sound like tenets to live by, but at Pinnacle University, they are the kings who rule all.
Five men. Five of the wealthiest successors known to man. Five cruel minds who see the world as their plaything. And me? I made the mistake of telling them no.
No, I wouldn’t be theirs.
No, I didn’t care about money.
No, they’d never break me.
So I’ve been enrolled in their school, in their kingdom, and I’m their pet. Meant to be used. Meant to be controlled. Meant to be damaged.
I won’t be destroyed. Not by them, not by anyone. And by the end of this, we’ll all be left irrepairable.
Note from the authors: This is a dark reverse harem college bully romance. This is not your typical academy romance. No school walls can contain this darkness. Welcome to the Pinnacle Group Estate. If you're looking for the light, turn away now.More info →
I’ve got a particular type of poison...
He thinks I’m his forever girl, I saw it in his eyes. I wished I could have slapped the look off his face with the same jarring finality that I’d learned I didn’t mean shit.
I’m not a forever sort of girl.
I’m not even his for the night.
He’ll be lucky if I’m his for the next hour if he doesn’t pay me for it.
And then Royce Mattherson stormed my defenses. Took all the poison inside of me and pushed it out through my pores. He tasted the taint on my skin and still decided to love me. He terrifies me. Exhilarates me. Frustrates me.
And he always gets what he wants
WARNING: While this is not a dark romance, the characters' pasts contain triggers and the fallout that comes from that. Please be aware of that when you purchase this title.More info →
***This Book is a Novella in the Lost Series World***
I saw her when my face looked like ground meat.
She had one shoe, lost to the world, fragile, and so fucking beautiful I couldn’t look away.
And then she asked me to take her home. To take away the pain.
It was dangerous to make such a request. Not knowing who I was. What I could do. But I took her home. Did what she asked. And fell in love with her. Fell in love with the broken girl who twisted me up inside. Taught me I was worth believing in. Showed me that I didn’t have to lose in the ring anymore, because she gave me the strength to fight harder.
And then I lost her…
I’ve got to get her back. Fight for her. Win. Take what’s mine, and keep her.

They told me about Ethan.
He’s no good.
He only knew darkness.
He’s a killer.
But that’s exactly what I need.
Only a monster can turn me into one. I’ve bled and screamed. I’ve been the victim too long. The scars that are visible only conceal the more painful ones on the soul. If he could help me save myself and learn to fight again, then he can have whatever he wants from me. My body. My soul. My heart. Later, he’ll realize that I had the better end of the bargain.
