Dark Nights gives readers 1001 ways in which to enjoy Romance!

Thinking about what I wanted to feature today, I decided to reach to my Kindle, seeking inspiration. 

I wasn't disappointed. How could I possibly be, when my reading choices were as endless as the Night is Dark...

Welcome to the world of 1001 Dark Nights.

Brought together by a common cause, a love of writing Romance,  1001 Dark Nights gives readers a treasure - the opportunity to read work by different Authors, from within the many available sub-genres of  the Romance category as a whole. 

Whether their work is light or dark, the sex hot or mild, the hero paranormal or contemporary, there remains one qualifying factor - their work earns the merit to stand on its own, fancy name  and logo notwithstanding. 

These are Authors whose work regularly lands them at the top of the bestseller charts. Their work sits at the highest echelon within the Romance genre, with cause. You can't climb much higher up the ladder than these Authors have, without reaching Heaven itself. But, then again, you may already be there after reading one of their novellas.

In order to give you the opportunity to look at each title, I've listed them independently. However, due to spacial limitations, I have kept each brief, giving only the title's blurb. 

Keep an eye out below for links to their work! Enjoy! =)

Release dates are listed on those titles not yet available

They had nothing in common but a desperate passion…

Billionaire Jason Denning lived life fast and hard in a world where anything could be bought and sold, even affection. But all that changed when he met “Greta,” a beautiful stranger ready to explore her hidden desires. From a blue collar family, Gia Angelotti wore a badge, fought for right—and opened herself utterly to love him. Blindsided and falling hard, Jason does the first impulsive thing of his life and hustles her to the altar.

Until a second chance proved that forever could be theirs.
Then tragedy ripped Jason’s new bride from his arms and out of his life. When he finds Gia again, he gives her a choice: spend the three weeks before their first anniversary with him or forfeit the money she receives from their marriage. Reluctantly, she agrees to once again put herself at his mercy and return to his bed. But having her right where he wants her is dangerous for Jason’s peace of mind. No matter how hard he tries, he finds himself falling for her again. Will he learn to trust that their love is real before Gia leaves again for good? 

 It's a happy time for Sloan Trent and Jane Everett. What could be happier than the event of their wedding? 

Their Krewe friends will all be there and the event will take place in a medieval castle transported brick by brick to the New England coast. Everyone is festive and thrilled . . . until the priest turns up dead just hours before the nuptials. 

Jane and Sloan must find the truth behind the man and the murder—the secrets of the living and the dead—before they find themselves bound for eternity—not in wedded bliss but in the darkness of an historical wrong and their own brutal deaths.

Bounty Hunter Naya Blade never thought she'd step foot in Surrender, Montana again. Especially since there was a warrant out for her arrest. 
But when her skip ends up in the normally peaceful town, she has no choice but to go after him to claim her reward. Even at the cost of running into the cop that makes her blood run hot and her sense of self-preservation run cold.

Deputy Lane Greyson wants to see Naya in handcuffs, but he'd much prefer them attached to his bed instead of in a cold jail cell. She drove him crazy once before and then drove right out of town, leaving havoc in her wake. He's determined to help her hunt down the bad guy so he can claim his own bounty—her. 

Newbie vampire Oliver and Ursula, the woman he saved from a blood brothel, are finally tying the knot. But with Ursula’s old-fashioned Chinese parents arriving in town for the traditional wedding, chaos soon breaks out—with Oliver always one step away from accidentally revealing to his soon-to-be in-laws that he and his extended Scanguards family are vampires.

And amidst all the chaos and confusion, a stalker lurks and threatens to tear Ursula and Oliver apart before they can blood-bond. 

Derek Brighton has become one of Dallas’s finest detectives through a combination of discipline and obsession. Once he has a target in his sights, nothing can stop him. When he isn’t solving homicides, he applies the same intensity to his playtime at Sanctum, a secretive BDSM club. Unfortunately, no amount of beautiful submissives can fill the hole that one woman left in his heart.
Karina Mills has a reputation for being reckless, and her clients appreciate her results. As a private investigator, she pursues her cases with nothing holding her back. In her personal life, Karina yearns for something different. Playing at Sanctum has been a safe way to find peace, but the one Dom who could truly master her heart is out of reach.
On the hunt for a killer, Derek enters a shadowy underworld only to find the woman he aches for is working the same case. Karina is searching for a missing girl and won’t stop until she finds her. To get close to their prime suspect, they need to pose as a couple. But as their operation goes under the covers, unlikely partners become passionate lovers while the killer prepares to strike.

Even in the fathomless depths of the underworld and the bleak chambers of a damaged heart, the bonds of love can heal…or destroy.
He holds the ability to annihilate souls in the palm of his hand. He commands the respect of the most dangerous of demons and the most powerful of angels. He can seduce and dominate any female he wants with a mere look. But for all Azagoth’s power, he’s bound by shackles of his own making, and only an angel with a secret holds the key to his release.
She’s an angel with the extraordinary ability to travel through time and space. An angel with a tormented past she can’t escape. And when Lilliana is sent to Azagoth’s underworld realm, she finds that her past isn’t all she can’t escape. For the irresistibly sexy fallen angel known as Azagoth is also known as the Grim Reaper, and when he claims a soul, it’s forever…

Life is hard. 

Life leaves you beaten, broken…alone. 

Then one day, a stranger touches your hand and you feel something intense, unforgettable, but yet, you want to forget. You need to forget. It’s safer than believing in things you’ve decided don’t exist. You know all about shattered promises and lost hope. You know them so much better than you know this excited, warm, wonderful feeling, and it scares you. He scares you, but he also makes you feel alive again. He makes you realize you haven’t really been living. You’re surviving and you fear he’s the one who’ll make you forget how to keep doing it. But what if he’s the one who changes everything?

When Rainie rushes an injured dog to a clinic, she’s appalled to recognize the veterinarian, Jake Sheffield.
So not fair. His memory has haunted her for over a decade. And then he showed up at her Shadowlands BDSM club. And now, he owns the veterinary clinic? The Gods of Cruelty must be laughing at her.
Master Jake is sophisticated, wealthy, and gorgeous. Rainie’s a fluffy, ex-slum-rat. He’d never be with a woman like her. Besides, she’s been burned enough times that she won’t get serious about any man. Sure, the BDSM club trainees are supposed to be seeking a permanent Dom, but no harm, no foul—the Masters don’t need to know the truth.
As a Shadowlands Master, Jake watches out for all the trainees. But one is special. Lush body, a gift for living life to the fullest, always laughing or smiling. Now he’s learned she also has a big heart. Although Rainie trips all his switches, she’s avoided him since the moment she arrived…and he let her have that play. But when she lies to him about her goals, he knows the time has come for a Master to take an active part in her training.

It only takes a moment…
Cassidy Burke has the best of both worlds, a driven and successful husband and a wild, impulsive best friend. But after a decadent Mardi Gras party, Cassidy finds both men pulling away from her. Did the three of them awaken secret desires during a split-second of alcohol-fueled passion? Or is Mardi Gras a time when rules are meant to be broken without consequence?
Only one thing is for certain—the chill that’s descended over her marriage, and her most important friendship, will soon turn into a deep freeze if she doesn’t do something. And soon.
Light this flame at the scene of your greatest passion and all your desires will be yours.
The invitation stares out at her from the window of a French Quarter boutique. The store’s owner claims to have no knowledge of the strange candle. But Cassidy can’t resist its intoxicating scent or the challenge written across its label in elegant cursive. With the strike of a match and one tiny flame, she will call forth a supernatural being with the ultimate power—the power to unchain the heart, the power to remove the fear that stands between a person and their truest desires.

There are some who believe that immortality is a gift. The seven members of the Phoenix Brotherhood

know that it is a curse…
Rainer Engel has lived a thousand lifetimes. He has died a hundred deaths. And he has been reborn each time in the Phoenix fire, unable to escape this earth or the life to which he has been bound.
He has seen those he loved grow up, wither, and die. He has known loss and pain. He has lied. He has killed. And he has shut his heart tight.
For Rain, death is his only goal. His, and the death of the Frei, a demon-breed that Rain and his companions inadvertently set loose upon the world so many lifetimes ago. Eradicate the few remaining Frei and the brotherhood can sleep.
He is focused. Single-minded. And he has no time for love.
At least not until he meets Callie Sinclair.
Callie wants only one thing: to find her missing father. Desperate, she turns to Phoenix Security for help, unaware that Phoenix is the brotherhood’s front company.
When it becomes clear that the missing man inadvertently caught the attention of the last of the Frei, Rain realizes that Callie and her father may be the key to his redemption—and his death.
Unlike most humans, Callie is well-aware of the shadows in the world. After all, her professor father chased demons for years—and his obsession destroyed her childhood and took her mother’s life. But despite her disdain for those who hunt demons, she finds herself drawn to Rain. To his strength, his edge, even to the darkness that clings to him.
As for Rain, he can’t deny the way this beautiful mortal awakens a fire deep inside him. He wants her—will do anything to possess her.
But in order to have her, Rain must face the most brutal of choices. Because once the Frei are defeated and her father is safe, Rain’s time on this earth will be over … and so will his days with Callie.
