Six Dark Tales. Six Sensual Stories. Six Page Turners.

ROUGH RHYTHM
: A Made In Jersey Novella by Tessa Bailey 
Band manager James Brandon never expected to find the satisfaction he’d been chasing, let alone stumble upon it in some sleezy Hollywood meat market. Yet the girl’s quiet pride spoke to him from across the bar. But after losing the grip on his dark desires that one fateful night, James has spent the last four years atoning for letting her down. Rock band drummer Lita Regina has had enough of James’s guilt. She wants the explosive man she met that night in Hollywood. And she’ll stop at nothing to revive him. 


DEVOTED: A Masters and Mercenaries Novella by Lexi Blake 
Amy Slaten has devoted her life to Slaten Industries. After ousting her corrupt father and taking over the CEO role, she thought she could relax and enjoy taking her company to the next level. But an old business rivalry rears its ugly head. When Flynn Adler realizes the woman he’s falling for is none other than the CEO of the firm he needs to take down, he has to make a choice. Does he take care of the woman he’s falling in love with or the business he’s worked a lifetime to build? 

Z: A Demonica Novella by Larissa Ione 
Zhubaal has spent decades searching for the angel he loved and lost nearly a century ago. Not even her death can keep him from trying to find her. But as time passes, he’s losing hope… As an emim, Vex has always felt like a second-class citizen. But if she manages to secure a deal with the Grim Reaper she will have earned her place in the world. The only obstacle in the way of her plan is a sexy hardass called Z. Soon it becomes clear that they have a powerful connection rooted in the past… 

FALLING UNDER YOU: A Fixed Trilogy Novella by Laurelin Paige 
Norma Anders has always prided herself on her intelligence and determination. She climbed out of poverty, put herself through school and is now a chief financial advisor at Pierce Industries. She’s certainly a woman who won’t be topped. Not in business anyway. But she’s pretty sure she’d like to be topped in the bedroom. Unfortunately most men see independence and ambition in a woman and they run. Then the most unlikely candidate steps up. Boyd, her much-too-young and oh-so-hot assistant surprises her one night with bold suggestions and an authoritative demeanor he’s never shown her in the office. 

CRAVING HIS COMMAND: A Doms of Genesis Novella by Jenna Jacob 
Mercy O’Connor—known as SymonĂ© at Club Genesis—craves the chance to experience true surrender. The only problem is, she’s set her sights on sexy, commanding Sir Justice, who studies her with his dissecting, arousing stare…but never offers to show her his ropes. If Kellan Graham let himself believe in love at first sight, SymonĂ© would own his heart. After having his life ripped apart, he’s spent years inventing ways to resist simple lust, but each time this beautiful submissive turns her pleading eyes to him, she ignites a complicated conflagration of desire Kellan can’t fight. 

AMERICAN QUEEN by Sierra Simone 
It starts with a stolen kiss under an English sky, and it ends with a walk down the aisle. It starts with the President sending his best friend to woo me on his behalf, and it ends with my heart split in two. It starts with buried secrets and dangerous desires…and ends with the three of us bound together with a hateful love sharper than any barbed wire.


Every Dark Nights tale is breathtakingly sexy and magically romantic.

REVIEW

Well this book had a couple hits and misses for my taste. Great writers but some of the stories were just bland or just a *shocking* boring BDSM take.

Now when they were good, THEY WERE AWESOME. Personal faves were Devoted by Lexi Blake, Falling Under You by Laurelin Paige and American Queen by Sierra Simone.

Rough Rhythm by Tessa Bailey just didn’t gel for me. For a semi rock romance it was sort of a letdown for me. Z by Larissa Ione was a strange addition in this collection and I felt it should’ve been by itself. 

I really could have enjoyed Craving His Command by Jenna Jacob IF KELLAN WASN’T A TOTAL TOOL BAG! I had such a fucking beef with this entire thing. Like I’m even angry typing this. 



Must read goes to Laurelin Paige. Absolutely loved Boyd and Norma. Their story took a different boss/assistant role and I was so happy with the way their romance went. All the usual plot points I expected were gone and left me so happy with the ending. 



About the 1001 Dark Nights: Bundle Ten Authors-


Tessa Bailey Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.

Inline image 5Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of eight years and four-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

Inline image 8Laurelin Paige –Laurelin Paige is the New York TimesWall Street Journal, and USA Today Bestselling Author of the Fixed Trilogy. She’s a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones and the Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She’s also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn’t do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio.






Inline image 9Jenna Jacob – USA Today bestselling and award winning author Jenna Jacob lives out her happily-ever-after in Kansas with her Alpha husband, adult children, and animal babies. When she’s not pounding the keyboard she’s likely riding a Harley, camping and fishing, reading, or cooking. Dubbed the “Goddess of Gravy” by Lexi Blake, Jenna enjoys tantalizing the taste buds of family and friends with her famous fried chicken dinner.
But don’t let her conventional innocence fool you. Jenna has been involved in the BDSM lifestyle for over twenty years. With experience and knowledge she delves deep into the emotional psyche of strong Dominants and sassy submissives with her Doms of Genesis series and The Doms of Her Life series (co-authored with Shayla Black and Isabella LaPearl).
Her works have been called: savagely beautiful, captivating, and emotionally riveting.
A hopeless romantic, Jenna paints a softer picture with her contemporary romance: Sky Of Dreams. A lover of life and laughter, she sets her zany sense of humor free in the romantic comedies: Sin On A Stick and Wet Dream.
No matter the genre, you’ll want a box of tissues handy, Jenna tugs hard on the heartstrings.
