Almost Heaven is a dark, emotional tale of how the power of love can heal even the deepest of wounds.

Almost Heaven

Merciless Few MC West Virginia Chapter #1

by M.D. Stewart

Genre: Contemporary MC Romance

Almost Heaven is a dark, emotional tale of how the power of love can heal even the deepest of wounds.

Gunnar "Viking" Anderson

I never thought I’d return to West Virginia, not after my father was convicted of murdering my girlfriend, Hailey. But when my father dies, I’m forced to face the hometown I left behind. I’ve closed myself off to a happy life, content with the brotherhood I’ve found in the Merciless Few MC. That is, until I saved Diana Taylor during a brutal assault.

Diana Taylor

I’m searching for my missing niece but it's Viking who ignites a search for something more. Despite his reservations, he says he can't help being drawn to my strength and unwavering determination to find, and save Mariska. As I fight to break down his walls, I know Viking must confront the demons of his past or we won’t have a future. Am I strong enough to help him heal, and discover that love is worth fighting for?

Doc nodded and opened his medical bag, pulling out a pair of scissors. I grabbed the doorknob but came rushing back in when her cry of fear rang through the room. Doc had started to cut her jeans. I could hear her begging him to stop as she flailed her arms. 

Diana.” My voice was harsher than I intended. I had to swallow the fear that she would seriously hurt herself. I softened my tone. “Diana, you’re safe.”

Don’t, don’t leave me. I trust you.” Her voice sounded hoarse, deeper than I would’ve expected.

I was just giving you privacy. They need to remove your clothes to clean you up. Doc is, well, a doctor, and the women are here to help. You don’t know me, so I don’t want to embarrass you.”

She opened her eyes, the right one was nearly swollen shut from the large pump knot above her brow. I found myself looking into the most beautiful emerald green eyes I’ve ever seen.

Please. I know you s-saved me. Stay.” I could tell it hurt her to talk. “Don’t know anyone.”

Doc grabbed the scissors and continued to cut her jeans and torn shirt from her body. I tried not to ogle her luscious curves. When I sighed, Doc just shook his head. “Take off her shoes and be careful of her ankles. She might have sprained one or both.”

I did as he asked, trying not to jostle her too much. Her bright red toenail polish was chipped and growing out. Something about the sight went straight to my gut. I was brought back down when I saw her knees. They were red, bruised, and raw. Her shins were pretty banged up too. Fuck.

Now that she’s asleep, I’ll give her wrist a more thorough exam.” He lightly grasped her right forearm, his fingers probed from her elbow to her hand. Even with pain medication, Diana moaned when he got to her wrist. “Without x-rays I can’t be positive she didn’t break something. It’s damn sure swollen. I’ll put a splint on it to be safe. What shape are her ankles in?”

I glanced down, noticing I was rubbing the painful scrapes on her lower leg. I jerked my hand back like she was on fire. I hated to admit I felt like I’d touched the sun.

I’m somewhat of a recluse, living in Southern West Virginia with my husband, three cats, and three chickens. I’ve combined my love of romance with my vivid imagination to create my own Universe. My hope is that my books can transport you to faraway worlds where there's always a guaranteed happily ever after!

Angels Around Us Excerpt and Giveaway #SilverDaggerTours


After falling out of the sky- quite literally- with an airplane, 

Amber goes though life simply surviving from week to week.  

Angels Around Us

Heaven's Torment Book 1

by Victoria Liiv

Genre: Psychological Women's Fiction, Contemporary Romance

After falling out of the sky- quite literally- with an airplane, Amber goes though life simply surviving from week to week. Her traumatic experience keeps on haunting her day and night, but mostly at night, and it seems there's no way out. Nothing left to try for. If life is only a torture, why keep on going?

The answer is simple: Adriaan.

The man has managed to get through her defences and keeps her hope alive. He's the reason the get out of bed in the morning. He's the reason to push through the terror encompassing her. He's also her therapist. A new fear surfaces past the trauma: confessing her feelings for him.

Adriaan couldn't possibly love her back. Not only because relationships between a therapist and their patient are not allowed, but also because she's damaged. 

Keeping her obsession secret draws Amber closer to Huub. He's nice. He's successful. He's good in bed. But he's not Adriaan. 

Amber struggles through life, holding onto a small spark of hope and the love she keeps on running from.

All you need to know about Angels Around Us:
- written in first person present (have to note it since some people despise this)
- falling for the therapist (forbidden love)
- a slow burn romance
- a healing journey from panic attacks and trauma
- an emotional support dog Angel
- it is Amber's emotional journey first and foremost and romance second. An emotional connection that grows over time. It is not a smutty romance
- it covers several darker topics that can be triggering.


This book contains darker topics of life among which is living with trauma, anxiety, emotional abuse, self-harm, and abortion. If you are disturbed by any of that subject matter, then this book may not be for you. 

If you find any more triggers I should mention while reading the book, let me know.

"There’s always a light at the end of the tunnel."

I look over to Adriaan’s table at the same time he looks over at us. Shit. His brother is laughing at something Adriaan must’ve said, then stands up and walks straight towards us.

“Amber, is it?” he asks once he stops right in front of us, blocking our view of the two women on the stage that are actually not that bad to listen to. “I’m Lucas. Adriaan would’ve come over, too, but he’s a pussy.” He laughs, throwing his head back, and I see his Adam’s apple bobble up and down in the rhythm of his chuckles.

I stare in disbelief. “Not how I’d describe him, but okay.”

“No? How would you describe him? Ik ben benieuwd!” Lucas has the same confidence Adriaan does as he pulls a chair over from a neighbouring table and sits down on it the wrong way around, his arms on the backrest.

“Is that what you came over here for? To talk about Adriaan?”

Lucas laughs again. He’s got such an easy laugh that is almost infectious.

“He’s here to test the waters!” Natalie exclaims. “After your performance, I’d be curious too about your feelings. Although, you did leave it all on the stage, didn’t you?”

I groan and protest. “I told you,” I squeeze through tight lips as my cheeks burn up under the scrutiny of the man looking so much like his brother but acting completely opposite to what I’d imagine Adriaan being like. “He’s just my—”

“Therapist. Yes, I heard. I also heard you’re totally drooling over him.”

“Nat!” I shout exactly at the time the music stops, and my voice carries over the murmurs of the whole bar. A few people turn to stare at the outburst. I notice Adriaan being one of them.

“She really needs a drink,” Lindsay chirps in. “She’ll loosen up quite a bit once she gets tipsy.”

I roll my eyes at her and shake my head ‘no’.

“Really?” Lucas asks. “Because I did see her give away a drink. What would you like?”

“I’m driving,” I mutter.

“She likes Sex on the Beach,” Idy helps out.

“I’ve never had sex on the―Oh, right, we’re talking about the cocktail. Seriously, I’m good. I don’t need anything.”

As if on cue, the next participant in the karaoke night, decent as she is, sings out “I wanna have sex on the beach …”

I groan. “Gosh! What are the chances? I don’t understand it, though. Who’d want to have sand all over themselves, getting stuck to the crooks and nooks of their bodies? That can’t possibly be nice.”

Lucas laughs again. I have a feeling he’s one of those easy-going happy people who can find amusement in the simplest of things. It slightly reminds me of the beginnings of my therapy sessions with Adriaan, before the topics turn sour and depressing and I drown his smile with my sorrow. The laughter gets Adriaan to look over at us again, and I see him stand up from his seat to reluctantly move closer to our table.

“There you are! I wondered how long it would take for you to decide solitude doesn’t suit you when there’s four beautiful ladies to entertain. You learn such amazing things. Did you know Amber doesn’t like sex on the beach?” The look Adriaan gives Lucas could banish demons. “No, really, apparently the cocktail is fine, but the real thing is a no go.”

“Only you could start a conversation with something as personal as preferred intercourse locations,” Adriaan replies with a raised eyebrow. “Do I even want to ask how you got to the topic?”

Victoria Liiv is a writer, reader, nature lover and traveller at heart. She has been travelling through magical worlds since a very young age and wants more than anything to share the wonder with everyone else eager to escape from all things mundane. Let it be a magical adventure through slowly darkening Earth or a soul crushing fight for survival and love while the world burns. Sometimes all it takes is a little bit of romance.

She self published her debut novel Through Hell & Highwater in 2020 when the pandemics keeping her isolated gave her the reason to follow her dream of becoming an author. She hasn’t looked back since.

Her second novel, Afterworld: Road to Redemption, released September, 2022.

With many more ideas and characters keeping her awake at night this is only the beginning of her writing career.

In her everyday life she found the magic in her partner, who gave her courage to move out of Estonia, the country she was born in, to an equally small but more known The Netherlands.

The father she thought died long ago is back, and he's got dark plans of his own.

Ghostly Intentions, by Melody Johnson: Nannette doesn’t mind seeing dead people; it’s the living people she can’t trust. But when Colton invites her to a Halloween party in his family’s cemetery, communing with the spirits of the oldest and darkest bloodline in their witches coven is an opportunity for power that Nannette can’t resist, no matter the risk to her person … or her heart. 

A Barking Chance, by Leah Miles: Forced to work together to evaluate his late uncle’s dog training center, Zane and Beth find more than memories in the office files. Whoever cooked the books is willing to destroy their lives as well as the paperwork to cover the evidence of their crimes. With the business and her dogs on the line, can Beth and Zane forgive the mistakes of their past to save their future together?

 Love in Three Parts, by M.J. Gates: Elizabeth loved Gabe, but any chance of them becoming more than friends is ruined when her roommate seduces him. A decade later, she’s a successful doctor, and he’s a decorated Army veteran. When unlikely circumstances force them back together, will he find the courage to bare his heart and give their relationship the chance it never had?

The Essence of Cinnamon, by CS Bennett: In this whirlwind period tale set in 1919, in Huntsville, Alabama, an artist's passion for his work collides with the love he discovers with an unlikely model.

Excerpt from Love in Three Parts by M.J. Gates

You’ll make someone a good husband someday.” The words left her mouth before she could think to stop them. She could also see that they had produced the effect she had unintentionally sought.

Why don’t we just finish eating? Then we can talk.”

Talk? Yes, let’s talk. Let’s talk about this thing we have, Gabe. We’ve been playing house for a year now. I’m leaving in a month. Where do we go from here, Gabe?”

We have talked about that. We agreed a long time ago not to mix our friendship with anything else.”

I did that a long time ago because I knew how hurt and confused you were after Kinsley. Do you still have feelings for her?

Of course not. You know that.”

Then why are we where we’re at?”

Because that is what you said you wanted. You said you wanted us to stay friends. That you needed me to be your friend. You said moving our relationship forward sexually would ruin what we had, so I agreed, and that is what I have done.”

Always the Boy Scout. Do you always do what you’re told?”

Is that what you want? Do you want us to have sex?”

She could tell that her goading was getting him as angry as she was, but there was no turning back now.

If I want sex, I can get that anytime. I don’t need you for that.”

Then what do you want, Belle?”

Nothing. I want nothing from you. I’m done with whatever this has become.”

She stood up from the table, finished the rest of her wine in a single swallow, and walked upstairs to her bedroom. Before falling asleep, she heard Gabe cleaning up. When she came downstairs in the morning, he was gone.

Ghostly Intentions Author Interview: Melody Johnson

Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in your story?

Colton Maine, the hero in my story Ghostly Intentions, is a witch afraid to use his magic. He descends from seven generations of dark practitioners who abused their power, so he’s torn between familial loyalty and accepting the villainy of his heritage. Where Colton is a brooding beta hero, my heroine is quite the opposite. Genuine, warm, and caring, Nannette attends Colton’s Halloween Party in the hopes of tapping into some of his dark magic for her own purposes. Nannette is blind, but she has the unique and coveted ability to see beyond the mortal plane; she can see ghosts.

What is your favorite part of this book and why?

I absolutely love the moment when all the cards are finally on the table: Colton reveals his true purpose for inviting Nannette to his party, Nannette confesses her true motivation for attending, and this unlikely pair attempts to combine the dark and light sides of their magic to achieve both their goals. Colton, having spent a lifetime resisting the evil lure of his power, realizes through his connection with Nannette that there’s more to magic than pain and sacrifice.

Do you have any “side stories” about the characters?

Yes! My Witchy Business series is a collection of short romances featured in various anthologies. They can be read in any order, and the heroes and heroines often appear as side characters in earlier stories. For example, Nannette and Colton are mentioned in Til’ Death Don’t Us Part (Witchy Business, 4). Dan and Phin, the hero and heroine of Til’ Death Don’t Us Part, attend the costume party in Fated By Fire (Witchy Business, 3). And Jenavieve St. Clair, the heroine of Fated by Fire, has a sister, Mona St. Clair, the heroine of Mirror Justice (Witchy Business, 2). All the characters are tied together by their membership in one of two covens in their little southern coastal town of Thornton, Georgia.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

I’ve always been a storyteller. From a young age, I enjoyed drawing my own picture books. In high school, I began writing short stories about damsels slaying dragons and falling in love along the journey. I even majored in creative writing in college, but I didn’t finish my first full-length novel until my senior year. Previous to that, I would hit the 100-page mark, be inspired by a new idea, and abandon my current project to chase that new concept, leaving dozens of stories without endings in the wake of my enthusiasm. Completing that first manuscript was such a huge milestone for me in my writing life, and that’s when I seriously began my pursuit to becoming published. That moment is when I first considered myself a true writer.

The five authors participating in this anthology are members of First Coast Romance Writers (FCRW), and proceeds from this anthology benefit their organization. FCRW is a non-profit that welcomes both published and unpublished authors, as well as any individuals involved in writing and publishing.

Through My Heart Teaser #rabtbooktours

Romantic Moments 3

Romantic Horror, Vampire Romance

Date Published: October 01, 2023

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Adrian – I am a vampire whose physical ugliness intensified with my immortality. For centuries I hunted alone, disguising myself from prey, preferring illusions to brutal attacks. Others of my kind spurned me. Some tried to destroy me, and on them I unleashed my wrath. I suffered the agony of eternal loneliness, and then I met Anna.

Anna – My life was almost unbearable until a tall, black-haired stranger with fiery eyes and needle sharp teeth drank my blood and swept me into an unimaginable world. From the night we met, I gave Adrian my heart, but a lie spun by a jealous enemy drove us apart. I swore I would never give him the chance to hurt me again, but denying my love for him was harder than I thought.

Note: Through My Heart is a very short horror romance featuring vampiric love. It has a spicy heat level, violence, and a HEA. This Romantic Moments story is the perfect length for a lunch break, before bed, or any time you want a quick, romantic read.


I found her on the streets of Pompeii just days before the fateful eruption of Vesuvius. Many centuries earlier, I had been thrust into the life of a blood drinker, changed on the field of battle.

To this day, I don't know why the blood drinker changed me. Beauty is prized among our kind, and I was known as the Brutal Beast—a warrior with the strength of a dragon and the face of one.

I suppose it doesn't matter why. It might have been a gift, or a curse, or perhaps it was just her sense of humor. I can still feel her teeth tearing into my neck. I can taste her blood, as sweet and thick as wine.

I digress. Where was I?

Ah, yes, Pompeii. I had arrived on my merchant ship from Constanta, and while my servants unloaded cargo, I sought nourishment in the brothels that were plentiful in the city. Even then, I caught the scent of death emanating from the distant mountain. I had planned to stay for a while, but just one night might be too long. Still, I needed to drink before moving on.

A delicious scent teased my nose. It was musky, sweet, and sad. The aroma of despair. My gaze riveted to a beautiful woman—hair as black as my own, dark eyes with flecks of gold that my keen vision detected even from across the street. She was slim and her skin kissed golden by the sun. Despite the warmth of the air, she shivered and rubbed her bare arms that were imprinted with bruises from an earlier customer.

I approached, still wearing a hood—blood drinkers are rarely affected by warmth or cold, unless it's extreme. The hood, combined with my powers of the mind, would create the illusion of handsome looks. I didn't spin the dream quite yet, though. Sometimes, I indulged in the self-torture of seeing how they reacted to me.

She glanced at me when I paused beside her, so close that my shadow darkened her face.

"Welcome. Would you like to come inside?" she asked in a soft monotone. Her voice, like her scent, emanated despair. She didn't even look surprised by my appearance.

"Very much."

With a sigh, she turned and led me past a tattered curtain, into the small, candlelit room where she lived and entertained customers.

She gestured toward the stone bed.

I remained standing and said, "We should talk first."

Now she raised an arched black eyebrow. "About what?"

I pulled down my hood, completely exposing my pale, bony face that was covered in scars, most from my mortal life, but some sustained after my change, during fights with other blood drinkers, ones who couldn't keep their mouths shut and their weapons to themselves. My eyes, deep-set and black as midnight pools, intimidated just about everyone who dared lock gazes with me.

She swallowed visibly and audibly, but didn't look away.

"Will you still take me to your bed, my lovely?"
