Killing June is a sizzling and suspenseful digital-only standalone. SEDUCED BY PAIN At night I’m June, dominating with the whip, even as I crave the hot, searing blow of the cane, myself. I loathe this side of who I am, but I can’t deny it or escape it. And as my clients cry out for me, begging for mercy, I can't help but want June dead. By day, I’m Alex Ryan, the good, successful Southern woman everyone thinks I am. I’ve compartmentalized my life to make it bearable, and to get what I want most: revenge. I can have a future with June dead, as soon as I confront the man that terrorized my past. SAVED BY SIN Cade Brannon is the local gun for hire, part of the seedy underworld of Dallas, but he may also be my savior. I want his help and he wants me. But Cade refuses to play by my rules and is forcing his way into every one of those compartments that I want to lock away. Now the parts of my life I’ve fought so hard to keep separate are bleeding together and it’s tearing me apart. I just want to go back to being Alex Ryan. But at what cost am I willing to kill June?

Charming, quick-witted, and full of smiles, Nathan is all Robert could dream of. He's also ready to fall into the arms of his gruff protector. Robert, on the other hand, has never been with a man and will first need to fight his own demons if he is to accept that his whole being wants to make Nathan his. With his former boss hunting them both, time is ticking, and Robert might just not get the chance to decide before it's too late. More importantly though, Robert will stop at nothing to protect the man who's made him feel alive again, the man who is the only thing between him and the abyss. * "I never had to think much about death before, but I did yesterday.

After passing through the portal to another realm… ...Ted Finley must put his trust in unlikely allies to survive. The Realm of Souls is a war zone, and Ted and Natalie are behind enemy lines. Badly injured and powerless, the two strangers to a new world must rely on a mysterious woman and her village to live to see another day. Erica LaPlante is down to her second-to-last option. Only a coordinated effort from Jennifer, Dhiraj, Travis and the rest of the gang will keep Erica from her last resort: death and regeneration. But fugitives at large can't hide forever, and some of them won't live long enough to clear their names. The Light, the Dark and the Ugly is the fourth novel in a YA Sci-Fi Fantasy series that features exhilarating combat, deadly foes, sharp humor, and a little romance. Author Bryan Cohen's Ted Saves the World series breaks darker ground in a chilling, action-packed fourth installment. Q & A With The Author Q - How would you describe the Ted Saves the World series? A - That's a stumper! I've always loved reading books and watching TV shows that mix genres together. It's like a buffet. How can you choose just one? Ted Saves the World is a combination of several different genres. It has the elements of a YA sci-fi fantasy series, but you might also call it a collection of paranormal books for teens and young adults. I've always loved horror books for teens and coming of age series best sellers as well, so you'll find a few dashes of each in the series too. Q - Why did you want to write superhero novels? A - I love challenges. Every year, I try to take on something new. I'd written some nonfiction, but I wanted to try writing young adult books for boys and girls alike. That's why it was important for me to write super-powered male and female characters. Also, given the recent boom of Marvel superheroes on the big screen, I wanted to take my own crack at the genre. Q - What does it mean to you when readers buy your books? A - It's an honor. Who knows if I'll ever be one of the young adult best sellers at the top of the list, but it's so amazing to see people reading my books. Like most writers, I used to think I wasn't good enough, so I didn't try. With the encouragement of my friends, family members, and readers, I was able to give this series a go. I'm eternally grateful for each reader who puts my books on their virtual shelf. Young Adult Sci-Fi and Fantasy Superhero - Suitable Age Range: 12 - 18+ yrs.

Continue Reading →

The darkly handsome man gazes deeply into her eyes. She finds him irresistible, wants to experience the passion of the moment. He grins—the movie audience can see his lengthened lateral incisors—and bends to her neck. The eroticism is horrible, and compelling. Audiences are drawn to horror cinema much as the surrendering victim. Afraid to watch, but more afraid something will be missed. Since the horror film is the most primal of all movie genres, seldom censored, these films tell us what we are about. From the silent era to the present day, Dark Romance explores horror cinema’s preoccupation with sexuality: vampires, beauty and the beast, victimization of women, “slasher” films, and more. Separate chapters focus upon individuals, like Alfred Hitchcock and Barbara Steele. Entertaining, and thought-provoking on the sexual fears and phobias of our society.
