Published: June 19th, 2015

Blurb:

Emerald – a girl with green eyes and a rarity after the horrific genocide that slaughtered millions.

After the war, King Gideon rose in power. A lust-filled and greedy king that believed in the power of slavery.

At eighteen, women were required to come before King Gideon and his four sons, to offer themselves as a courtesan. The princes took only those they found most attractive and alluring. The rest were returned to their homes with a brand on their wrist proving they had been through the process and rejected. Ignoring the ritual was punishable by death.

Aria Stone had been kept hidden from the princes and the ceremony, because she was an Emerald. At twenty-three, the royal guards storm her home, murder her mother, and drag her to court. She must face the four princes.

A dystopian erotic adventure.

Excerpt

 

“You are a handful. I should have known that’s why Henry walked right on by without so much as a second glance. For a brother that likes gems, he must have known the trouble one would cause.”

Aria sneered at James. “Tell me you don’t believe it.” Emeralds, people with green eyes, are known to be power and money hungry. Does James think that about her? It’s not true. No part of the belief system created to destroy the world in genocide was true. How could James think of her like that? She may not be easy or pleasant at times, but she wasn’t what the enemy said.

James shifted in his seat. “Of course not, but you are trouble. I can see it in you, the rebellious streak. My father will beat it out of you.”

“So what? I’m supposed to pretend it doesn’t bother me that he ordered the execution of my mother and dragged me from my home, drugged me, stripped me naked, and stole my freedom? No part of what you and your father are doing is okay.”

James grimaced. “I am sorry about your mother. I can’t change our world, but I can protect you here.”

 

 

 

Four Questions with the Author

 

The Gem Apocalypse series has quite a bit to do with eye color, what color eyes do you have?

Mine are green. I guess you could say authors always find ways to pull elements of themselves or real life into their stories.

 

Speaking of real life elements, do you use any true stories in your fiction?

Fiction is that for a reason. My life wouldn’t make a great book (at least not a romance novel). With that being said, Dating Wars (Federal Agent Chronicles Book 2) does delve a little into some real dating horror stories that I’ve experienced. A few are true, some are fictitious. I’ll let you be the judge.

 

First dystopian novel you read and fell in love with?

In college I read The Handmaid’s Tale for a Sociology class. I loved the novel and quite honestly it was probably the first book I ever read for school that I went back to read other works by that author. At the time I read it, I thought it more science fiction (and it is). I had no idea there was a category called Dystopian fiction.

 

Will we get to see more of the other brothers, especially those that have a little less book time?

I would love to do that! The plan is to do a spin-off series featuring Aaron and maybe some time with Henry too, along with more of the courtesans.

BOOK REVIEW- GONE FOR YOU BY JAYNE FROST


Book Description
Publication Date: April 28, 2015
As the guitarist for the rock band Caged, I know the rules: no relationships. No complications. Leave ‘em smiling when you go, but always go. Besides, it’s not like I’m ever in one place for more than a few days at a time. As the next hottest thing out of Austin, the band and I are riding the wave, and the music is all that matters.

Until her…

Lily Tennison has “complication” written across her beautiful face. But I can’t get involved. The timing’s all wrong. But she’s under my skin, and I can’t resist her troubled eyes and sweet smile. And I do have a little time to kill. Not much, just a few days in Dallas.

So I’ll scratch the itch and move on, like I always do.

Simple, right?

Note: You won’t need to turn up the heat—Sixth Street Bands Romances have plenty of steamy fun. This story can be read as a stand-alone but is part of the Sixth Street Bands music scene.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

I was given a copy of this book by the Author for an honest review.

GONE FOR YOU is a great start to this series. The characters and story line are very well-developed. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series. Cameron is part of the band Caged, and when he meets Lily, he knows he has to have her. Lily doesn’t know what to do with Cameron, but for one weekend she will follow her heart. This is such a great book, and I recommend it to everyone. This is a sweet and funny story that you will be rooting for them to get together. I give GONE FOR YOU 5/5 STARS.

EROTICA BOOK REVIEW- RESIST BY LILLY AVALON

RESIST BY LILLY AVALON
Book Description
Publication Date: August 26, 2014
Allegra Maxwell is sick of the monotony of life. It’s all work and no play, and right now she wants to play. She shows up at her company’s yearly meeting with one goal in mind: have a one night stand with a stranger. What she doesn’t count on is Devlin Pierce walking through the door.

When Allegra first met Devlin, she knew he would be nothing but trouble. After he proved her theory true last year, she made a vow to avoid him at all costs. He’s the last person she wants to see, and he knows it. He refuses to leave her alone though. As much as she tries to fight it, the pull he has on her is undeniable. Her ability to resist him proves impossible when Devlin makes her an offer she can’t refuse.

One night. That’s all he asks. That’s all she wants. Or is it?

Resist is a 21,000 word erotica novella, and the first of a three book series

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

I was given a copy of this book by the Author for an honest review.

RESIST is a quick read at  74 pages. This book is very well written, with great cast of characters.  Allegra and Devlin have met before tonight. When she found him with another woman, things did not progress from there. Now a year later they meet up again, and things start to heat up. All she wanted is one night, but will one night be enough. I loved reading this book and cannot wait to read the next. I liked the characters of Devlin and Allegra. I recommend this book to everyone. I give RESIST 5/5 stars.
