Mayhem On the Hills by V Simran

TITLE – Mayhem on the Hills
AUTHOR – V Simran
GENRE – Dark Young Adult Romance
 RELEASE DATE – September 15th, 2022



Some call him the god of the valley,
Some call him the future king.
But I only ever saw him as my wicked knight.
With his wolfish eyes that hunted me, his broody voice that taunted me and with his muscular body that enticed me.
I hated his arrogance, the untouchable air he walked around with and
Mostly…. the way he coerced me into going on a date with him.
But then I saw beneath the man he portrayed to the world and I was sucked into his orbit.
Only for it to be all a facade.
This is my story of how I fell for his lies and paid the price.


I hear everything they whisper about me in the corners of the valley.
My bad reputation that instills fear in everyone.
None of it mattered…. Until I saw her.
Glowing like a beacon in the dark.
She despises me, fights me, curses at me but like a fetish, it only makes me want her more.
So I trapped her despite all the warnings in my head and the threats of my world,
Believing it would never touch her.
Only for it all to fall apart into mayhem.
This is my story of how I became the ruler of darkness and chaos.

NOTE: This is a 66k words prequel to the series. It takes place four years before the first book in the series and is highly recommended to read first.

Author Bio

I’m an avid reader turned author and it was always my passion and dream to write my own anti-heroes and villains until they meet their match. My books are dark and taboo with lots of steam and dirty talk. When I’m not writing, I’m either binge-watching netflix or reading romance novels. I have currently published two novels and hope to release many more.

Preorder on Amazon Now
Will be FREE with Kindle Unlimited

I left Brentson in the dead of night and made a promise that I would never return.

I was determined to leave my past behind, but here’s the thing about it:

It always has a way of hunting you down.

Now, I’m face-to-face with Nash Henson, my ex-boyfriend, heir to the Henson fortune, and crowned king of Brentson University.

He’ll never forgive me for what I’ve done.

And when he’s done playing his game with me, there won’t be anything left.

Because he’s determined to destroy me.

Devious Game is the first book in a dark college romance trilogy that has enemies-to-lovers themes. This book may not be suitable for all readers due to dubious situations that might be triggering. It ends in a cliffhanger and the next book in the series will be Devious Secret.

About the Author:

Bri loves a good romance, especially ones that involve a hot anti-hero. That is why she likes to turn the dial up a notch with her own writing. Her Broken Cross series is her debut dark romance series.

She spends most of her time hanging out with her family, plotting her next novel, or reading books by other romance authors.

The Storm by Ranya Tempest

Ranya Tempest has revealed the cover for The Storm!

Releasing September 15, 2022

Our worlds couldn't have been more different.
But then our worlds slammed into each other, and the results were explosive in more ways than one.

It should have been nothing more than a dream.
A petty fancy neither was prepared for.
Yet what happened would be remembered for a long time to come.

They said love was blind… but what about lust?

Escaping my past wasn't easy, but I could see the light at the end of the tunnel. My way out of the life I was used to. The Legion MC was behind me now, and thanks to Harry, I was finally ready to embrace the life I had always dreamed of and deserved.
There was only one problem.
Harry was trouble, and I couldn't help myself. My body behaved funny around him, even as his presence introduced more chaos into my turbulent life.
His dominance was imminent.
I was his beautiful obsession.
His unbound fixation.
His bratty submissive.
But I couldn't abide his house rules. I had my own hidden agenda.
Something was approaching. I knew I would be forced to choose between my desire and my future. 
And that was just not fair.

This was supposed to be my one chance to escape the past. In Storm I found a woman who thrilled and excited me. One who managed to press all the right buttons.
My passionate Storm awakened a lust I didn't know I was missing. Too bad I had so many secrets. Should I risk dragging her down with me, or could I summon the courage to set her free before I imploded?
She belonged to me.
Bound by desire and obsession.
A woman I would do anything for, making this the hardest decision of my life. I was forced into actions I should have never had to take.
And that was just not fair.

Best-selling author Rick Riordan presents Tehlor Kay Mejia’s third chilling story based on Mexican folklore. This time Paola Santiago faces El Cucuy, aka the Boogeyman.

“Paola Santiago is a whip-smart Latina who dares to explore the shadows between folklore and middle-school friendship. A thrilling adventure.”–Nina Moreno, author of Don’t Date Rosa Santos

Paola Santiago has recently returned from Oregon, where she defeated the Hitchhiker ghost and saved her father from the vengeful spirit that was possessing him. The poor girl deserves a rest! But first she has to rescue Dante from the void, where he’s been imprisoned by some unknown force. Even though Dante has turned against Pao, she can’t just leave him there–they’ve been friends for too long.

Paola’s prophetic dreams seem to have dried up, so she has to find other ways to locate a new rift where she can enter the void. Signs point to Texas–but how is she going to get there from Arizona? It just so happens that Emma’s new group of politically active friends, the Rainbow Rogues, are planning a field trip to San Antonio. It’s the perfect ruse for Paola, if she can stand being with the judgmental girls for that many days. . . .

Relying on her wits, training from the Ninos de la Luz, and the emotional support of her best friend Emma, Pao makes it into the void. Once there she must face down not just one but two enemies: El Cucuy, the bogeyman . . . and someone even scarier who looks a lot like Pao herself.

This third exciting journey into Mexican folklore has our lovable, intrepid protagonist making discoveries both wonderous and fearsome.

About Jamie Rutland Gillespie

Jamie Rutland Gillespie was born and raised in a tiny, country town in South Carolina. At the age of 18, she moved to a slightly larger town in the same state and still lives there. She spent much of her youth visiting the beaches of the low country and taking trips to the mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee. The mountains were always her “happy place” and she still visits every chance she gets.

Jamie has always loved to read; she got her library card at the small library of her hometown at the young age of 6. She has a vivid imagination and has always made-up stories of places, people and situations that only exist in her head.

She currently lives in South Carolina with her husband, daughter and 17-year-old Yorkie Pom, who is her baby and shadow. She loves college football and has been a South Carolina Gamecock fan since birth. She also loves MLB and has been a Braves fan since she was a little girl, watching the games and going to games with her Dad. She is still an avid reader and enjoys writing, crossword puzzles, baking, and spending time with her family.

8/5 August #BRVL AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT – Wanted





Hyde Johnson is an erotic audiobook performer. A “read by” byline is too plain, and “narrated by” still doesn’t capture what he does. His livelihood is his passion. Performance art, the air he breathes. Which translates to a recluse who is a hot mess.

He’s not eating right, he’s drinking more, and his family’s meddling is making it harder to stay on task.

Being designated the guardian of her young niece Tina is the last thing Gypsy Hartford expected.

But when the State of South Carolina unceremoniously puts Tina in her care, Gypsy accepts it’s time to grow up and stop floating from town to town. Where does she start when she has no degree, no real friends, and no family besides Tina?

A want ad could be the answer to both their conundrums. Or it might open a whole new can of worms. Especially when you throw in a crazed author with an unhealthy obsession for her narrator.

Wanted: Someone to run errands, cook, and handle minor cleaning. Must be quiet and self-starting as I work nights and sleep during the day. Compensation negotiable, including transportation and board. Discretion a must. Only serious inquiries please

#BooksByREHargrave #ArtistWandererCrazyLove #WANTED #TBR #RomanticRead #HardHeadedLovers #NarratorRomance #NowInAudio

This story was an absolute breath of fresh air. First of all, the writing is excellent … Next, and probably my favorite thing is the story is sweet and believable. … Likable, relatable characters bumped it up to 4 stars… and the rest is just because I couldn’t put it down. This is worth every penny and worth the evening it took me to read it.” ~BookBub Reviewer


“Some of the best stories have the simplest of setups: man, woman, interloper. But a simple setup is all a good author needs. R. E. Hargrave is a good author – a very good one – and if this is your first time discovering her then you’re in for a treat.

Hyde Johnson is hot, but he’s a mess – a hot mess. And it’s probably the fact that Gypsy’s life is something of a reflection of his that they are drawn to each other. They fall into each other’s arms quickly, but then trouble arrives…

We found Wanted to be a comforting romance story with likeable lead characters, and interesting secondary characters. It was an easy read; we read it on a Thursday, but something about the book made it feel like a Saturday. Who can ask for more than that?” ~ReadFREEly (Wanted was one of their 2020 Best Book We’ve Read All Year Finalists)
