Cover Reveal & Giveaway ~ Shot in the Dark by Riley Long


CR Banner

Cover Reveal & Giveaway:

Shot in the Dark by Riley Long


If you win the bet, we’ll let you disappear. If you lose, you’ll be trapped on stage forever.

I'm definitely straight, but when rock god Eli Steele offers me the opportunity of a lifetime in exchange for being his fake husband for a year, I can't say no. That's how I find myself sharing a bed - and more than a few kisses - with the lead singer of Blood Money. All I have to do is stay focused on my work and pretend to be in love with him. Easy, right?

I took a stupid fucking bet and now I have to convince Charlie to fall for me without using mind control. He's straight, but the bigger problem is that he's human and I'm not. Once he finds out I'm really a vampire, will he be able to look past my fangs and see what's in my heart?

Coming October 6th!

↠Bloodlines of Fate Book 2 by A.G. Carothers↞


→Preorder Here:

→Releasing October 6th



“Tell me of your homeworld…”

“Nope. And that’s the last time you watch that movie before bed, baby boy.” Talos cut off Kikoi who pouted.

“Fine. Then tell me about when Uncle Majid finally stopped being so grumpy and murdery all the time.” Kikoi batted his thick eyelashes.

“Okay, I can tell you all about that. Well, I don’t think he’ll ever stop being murdery as you put it.” Talos settled into his customary story telling position.

“Some would say that story begins well over two thousand years ago when I first met my best friend and powerful unicorn shadow. Some others would say it started a little over a thousand years ago when tragedy struck. But I think it starts when my eldest brother, the crazy half-giant vampire that he is, retired and went on a quest for redemption.”

Kikoi draped himself across Talos as he closed his eyes.

“Little did Majid and Odin know that Fate sent a tough, smart, wasn’t going to take lip from them polar bear to cross their path when they needed it most…”

Majid’s best friend, Talos, has found his mate and finally recognized his lover of the past several hundred years as his other mate. The mate Majid had spent the last eleven hundred years trying to forgive was back in his life.

Will Majid rescue one mate only to lose the other? Or will the fierce polar bear, Siku, give him a chance to redeem himself?

Will Odin forgive himself for the actions that tore Majid from his life? And will the not so little bear find him to be a worthy mate? Or is he doomed to die on a quest for redemption?

Will Siku find his place not only within the relationship his mates clearly already have but also the entirely different world that is city life? Or is he just fooling himself that he can get over the wall between him and his mates?

Bloodlines of Fate is an urban fantasy series set in a world destroyed by humans and resurrected by supernatural beings. This book contains depictions of omega polar bears who will eat you in self-defense, sturdy hairbrushes that break naughty butts, timeouts for coloring and painting toes, and a family reunion for the history books.

Majid is part two of a two-part story arch that tells the love story of two triads (MMM). It is necessary to read Talos to fully enjoy this book that does end in a HEA despite bickering chefs who try to burn the estate down.

This is a type of omegaverse with mpreg.

TROPES: Hurt/comfort. Kidnap. Revenge

THEMES: silent siren, vengeful Leopard shifter, sassy characters, noncon

Standalone but features side characters from Incubus Series.





“Silence is Golden When Words Can Kill.”

The best thing the only male siren can do is die, without ever saying another word. One more night of life proves one too many. His mother’s family want Domino alive until he’s fulfilled the prophecy of fathering the most powerful siren ever to exist. Then his bones will become commodities on a mage’s shelf. Goading his captors into ending his miserable, guilt-ridden existence fails thanks to a new, irritating, and cheerful abductor who claims to be saving his life but lies through his teeth.
Silent sarcastic sirens with a death wish aren’t Jude’s typical bounty. But the job to return a runaway to his mage father sounds like easy money for the leopard shifter. Money that will help fund Jude’s only goal in life, ending the rats who murdered his family. Not getting involved with his bounties is a life rule Jude never breaks, but there is something about this kid, besides having a voice that could wipe out every rat in existence with a word.
Bone amulets, prophecies, and shifters bind this dark web of secrets that could cost not only their lives but the world. 

Pied Piper is a dark paranormal romance set in the same DeMMonica world as Emma Jaye’s Incubus series.

Grim and Sinister Delights is a dark romance series based on classic fairy tales and stories. You will find standalone tales of gay romance that range in darkness and kinks. If you dare to take the challenge, read them all to find yourself lost in a classic that you think you know. These stories are for adult readers and may contain morally ambiguous themes.


This captor didn’t give Domino choices any more than the last ones. Although instead of assaulting him, this cat got his jollies by embarrassing his prisoner in public. It didn’t matter, Domino was twisting a mental knife in his own guts anyway. He’d broken his vow, had used his voice, and he didn’t know what he had left now that he’d lost even that tiny shred of integrity.

Murderer, coward, thief, betrayer, and now vow breaker. Domino wondered what else would be added to the list before he managed to die and that might be a lot harder than he’d planned with Jude around.

The woman came back with a pack of crayons and a sheet of paper with an outline of cartoon characters surrounding the diner logo. She proffered a menu plastered in the same idiotic characters. He shook his head.

“Ok, sweetie, let me know if you want anything,” she said and left them to it.

Domino turned the paper over, chose a blue crayon, and started to write.

“You really like coloring, huh?” Jude said, twisting the knife further.

My father’s dead.

Jude looked everywhere but at what Domino had written. Probably checking for other hunters coming to steal his prize as he’d stolen from the Karnaks. Or maybe he was just being a dick. Domino tapped the table, causing Jude to glance down.

“And how do you know that? Sirens don’t exactly have a good track record with their baby daddies. I bet he hightailed it out of there as soon as he did the deed.” Domino turned his attention back to the window. There was no point in trying to explain something so complicated with a fucking crayon to a guy who gave zero shits about anything apart from his bank balance.

He hadn’t found his phone or his damn thumb in the van. The entire top joint had been removed. The area was red, raw, and tender, but it’d healed over thanks to the healing seawater. Which I never should have left. I’m such a fucking coward.

Right now, it could’ve all been over. No more stares, no more anxiety or pain. No more cocky, fucking irritating cat shifter brightening up the world one quip at a time.

Jude’s meal arrived. The juicy lump of meat nearly overflowed the plate. The cat shifter tucked in with relish.

Jude groaned in delight at the first mouthful. “So damn good, you sure you don’t want some?”

Domino’s belly knotted. It could have been hunger or revulsion making it squirm, but whatever it was, he wanted out of here.

“Suit yourself.” Jude put another huge bite into his mouth. Domino wouldn’t have been surprised if the shifter picked the meat up in his hands and just gnawed on it.

Eating would only prolong things. He eyed the serrated knife in Jude’s hand, picturing stabbing it into his own throat or belly. His stomach heaved, remembering the sight and stink of Rory’s guts.

“Sorry if this is bothering you, but we really can’t risk not being together, and I have to eat. I’ve got a very fast metabolism, comes with being a cat shifter. We need meat regularly.”

Thank you for sharing that piece of fascinating trivia. . Mental and physical exhaustion dragged at Domino until he wondered if he’d actually dissolve into the seat. Should’ve stayed in the damn tank. Resting his head on the window, he closed his eyes and listened to the humans chatting around him. Sleep called, but he couldn’t, not here. One word, one shout because of a bad dream, and everyone within earshot could die.

The shifter only seemed to have two modes, bloody, callous murder or irreverent banter. It must be nice not to care, not to worry. It was why he’d spent so much time at Blaze, but even there, he could never fully forget.

“Can I get you boys, anything else?” Domino sank down a little further at the woman’s voice. Her curiosity, her pity, pecked at him, wanting to know his dirty secrets.

“I could do with a takeout box. Any kind of meat, doesn’t matter what, if you’ve got anything ready?”

“Just meat, no bread or salad?”

“Yep, I’m an all protein kind of guy.”

The server tutted. “Those faddy diets won’t do you any good in the long run.”

Jude spread his hands. “Do I look like I’m suffering?”

She gave him a long slow appraisal, then leaned forward, exposing her cleavage. “No, you certainly don’t. I’ve got a break in a little while if you–”

Jude gave her a grin that would melt the underwear of anyone remotely interested in cock and slung his arm around Domino’s shoulders. Every muscle tensed, but Domino managed to stay still. “Sorry, but I don’t play on your team.”

Her eyes went wide as she glanced between them. “But he’s…” she paused, wrinkling her nose.

“Sexy when he’s playing at being a kid? Yeah, I know. Daddies and littles, right? Got to love the kink.”

What the living fuck? .

Jude gave him a grin. “Aw, don’t get all salty on me, my little guppy, not unless you want a spanking?”

My review:

This book just skyrocketed to the top of my favorites. Domino & Jude's story is so perfect, I loved reading it and didn't wanted it to end. I just wanted to be (and still want to) with them in this world. 
(So yeah, next step is read the whole Incubus series by Emma)

Domino was an adorable character, I easily fell in love with him, and his background story was so so good. The whole siren side of the story was so amazing, and the way that Domino hasn't used his voice because of it was the best. I loved reading those scenes when he was mute, this way when he really used his voice those were so much better and more emotion filled. 

Jude was a really great character and I loved how strong but still vulnerable he was. He was such a cutie and a marshmallow. Loved him! Especially in his leopard form, aww so powerful and lovely.

It was filled with action, romance, bit darkness and a bit erotica, it was more then exciting and really interesting. And the ending, holy crap, so so good! I cried a little- but shh, don't tell anyone. It was so cute. Loved it so much.

Soothing his boy is a pleasure in more ways than one


Once upon a time, there was a boy who wanted a Daddy...

Henley knows what he wants from a relationship: to be taken care of by a Daddy. He’s under no illusions that he can be a handful. When he starts a new job, his gaze is taken to a prime specimen. Maybe Henley could persuade him to be his Daddy…

Isaac is worn out from the clubs, the scenes, the boys who say they want a Daddy then change their minds. When he’s given the responsibility of training the most obedient guy he’s ever met, Isaac is hooked. But does the guy even know what a boy is, despite acting like one?

They are powerless to stop their relationship. They complement each other so well.

Is Isaac the right Daddy for Henley, and is Henley the right boy for Isaac?

This is a 40,000 words sweet Daddy/boy romance


“I don’t want you to change yourself for me, Henley.”

“What do you mean?”

“You need to be yourself from the beginning. Don’t act or speak how you think I want you to. If I think something about your behaviour needs correcting, I will discuss it with you and help you alter it.”

“Through punishments?” Henley asked, eyebrows raising.

“If I believe that is the best way to remind you, yes.” Isaac hesitated. “For me, being a Daddy is a twenty-four-seven responsibility. I would need you to realise that everything I do for or to you is for your own benefit. I want to help you become all that you can be, and in return, you need to trust me wholeheartedly. Telling me the truth at all times, even when it scares you. You need to trust that I will catch you should you fall. I will hold you close and protect you with everything I am.”

Isaac gazed at Henley, seeing a shimmer begin in his eyes before they filled and overflowed.

“Come here.” Isaac issued the order, and they both scooted out of their opposite seats, Isaac guiding Henley to slide over in the booth seat so he could sit next to him. Isaac wrapped his arm around Henley’s shoulder, hugging him close and resting his fingers against the side of his face as his tears continued to fall soundlessly.

Once Henley had calmed, Isaac lifted his face. “Are you okay?” Henley nodded. “I need your words, sweetheart.”

“I’m okay,” he croaked. “I…You…It’s everything I want.”

“Alright. Let’s eat our food, and once we’re full, we can talk some more.”

Isaac reached for Henley’s plate from the opposite side of the table and placed it in front of Henley. Henley smiled, and though a little watery, it filled Isaac’s heart with joy. He couldn’t believe he had found someone who already knew about Daddies and boys, and in fact, was one.

After they had finished their meal and Isaac deduced Henley didn’t want a dessert, he gripped Henley’s hand and left the restaurant. It wasn’t particularly late, and the air was warm, so he suggested a short walk.

“For a relationship to work with me, I would need to give you a routine to stick to—”

“What kind of routine?”

Isaac raised his eyebrows at Henley, waiting until he apologised for interrupting before continuing, “Things like when you’d need to go to sleep, when to wake, when to eat. I don’t do this because I think you are incapable of doing them yourself. I do it because then I will know you are looking after yourself like I have asked you to. I trust that if I ask you to do something, you will do it. For example, if I ask you to eat at midday, and you agree, I expect you to eat at midday, barring any unforeseen circumstances.”

“That sounds good.” Henley glanced up at Isaac from underneath his eyelashes. “I do sometimes forget whether I’ve eaten or not.”

“Good to know, and thank you for being honest with me. I have seen that you can be a little excitable at times. I would like to help you find a way to manage that. I think your work, however amazing you already are at it, would benefit a great deal from you being calmer and more in control of your actions.” He paused and smirked. “And mouth.”

“Hey!” Henley pouted for a second before grinning. “Yes, okay. I know I can be a chatterbox. But I have so much to say.”

“And I wouldn’t ever want to stop you from saying it, but I do think there is a time and place for certain topics of conversation.”

Henley scrunched his nose up. “Is there really?”

“Yes,” Isaac said firmly.

They walked in silence for a few steps before Henley asked, “What should I call you?”

Isaac exhaled deeply. “I would love for you to call me Daddy. But you don’t have to. Isaac is fine, too.”

Henley rested his head against Isaac’s shoulder, wrapping his free hand around his biceps. “I would love to call you Daddy.”

“Does everything sound okay so far?”

Henley nodded, and when Isaac raised his eyebrows, he added, “Yes…Daddy.”

Isaac inhaled and briefly closed his eyes, his pulse skyrocketing at the word. “Perfect.”

My review: 

My biggest probleme with the book is, that I can't remember the storyline, at all. I read the book last week, and here I am, remember nothing. If it doesn't say anything, I don't know what will... 

I remember one thing though, that I didn't enjoyed it as much as I wanted to. Not a secret that daddy-kink is my number one favorite at all time, so if the book and the characters weren't memorable, that's a shame.  

It was a 3star read for me. Nothing unique, nothing new. Wasn't bad, but nothing amazing either. 
Ps. I remember all the books and characters I read (if it's an awesome read)

The Age of Man has passed, and a new age is upon the Earth. An age of magic and technology ruled by the supernatural beings that once hid amongst humanity has begun.

Talos - Vampyr King, Supernatural Council Member, and Despiser of Humans. Fate has a surprise up their sleeve for him.

Bayne - Raised by the human resistance, Would-be Assassin, and Despiser of Supernatural Beings. He's ready to sacrifice himself to kill his enemy.

Bayne is thrust into a world he thinks he knows but quickly discovers his whole life has been built on lies. Talos, perfectly happy ruling his corner of the world, is faced with an unexpected and unwelcome change that comes with the mate chosen by Fate. Together they must discover how to live and, in the end, love one another. But will Fate have more in store for them than just learning to love the species they hate?

Bloodlines of Fate is a new urban fantasy series set in a world destroyed by humans and resurrected by supernatural beings. Fate has many plans for the vampires, fae, unicorns, therianthropes, and humans of this new world. While their mates may be fated, learning to love isn't that easy.

This book contains depictions of gladiatorial combat, snarky fem twinks who will cut you, kings in stilettos, and awkward heats with a pinch of daddy kink.


Talos strode calmly into his office. His skin tingled with pins and needles all over. Odin and Majid were on his heels, and Majid closed the door behind him. Talos leaned on his teak desk as his discovery crashed into him. Claws extended from his fingertips and dug into the dense wood, marring its polished surface.

"Why of all days would this happen today?" Talos asked Fate.

"Brother, what is it?" Odin closed in and put a reassuring hand on Talos' back, but it made his skin crawl. He shrugged Odin off and turned back around.

"It's him." Talos still couldn't believe it. He wanted to race to his bedroom to confirm it, but he had to wait.

Majid cocked his head and narrowed his eyes. "What do you mean, it's him?"

Talos looked up at Odin and realization dawned on Odin's face. "Oh, him him?" Talos could only nod. His throat constricted.

"I knew I had to come to you, Brother. And it seems this is why. I was there when our father found his beloved, your pa."

Talos sat on the edge of the desk, crossed his arms, and massaged his temples with one hand. Majid stepped closer, started to put his hand on Talos, then took his hand back with an apologetic smile.

"Congratulations on finding your mate, my old friend."

Talos raised his head with a weary smile. "Thank you, and that was a magnificent display in there. I'll never tire of seeing you get horny." Talos chuckled softly. "Although my new mate called you a horse. Apparently, he's never heard of a black unicorn."

Majid snorted. "He's lucky I can't read his thoughts like you can," he scowled.

Odin's deep booming laugh caused Majid to snort again. Odin cleared his throat nervously, trying to cut off his laughter.

"Your idea to let one of the other resistance members through with him was good. It gave me an idea as to what kind of man my mate is. He was scared but he held his ground. His stubbornness to see his mission through shored him up. It's going to be interesting to see how he reacts to spending an eternity with us leeches."

Majid smirked. "You know how much I like a good impaling."

"I got something you can impale." Odin shook his butt at Majid and Talos snorted out a laugh.

Majid ignored Odin's interruption. "Your mate jumped a little, but you're right. He held steady even when I slowly killed that weakling." He scoffed in disgust. "Like anyone that weak would have made it through the selection process. It's a wonder they survived the games. They were lucky to have been killed by me."

"It is quite an honor. I think it's been a full month since you've impaled someone in the throne room." Talos rubbed his forehead. His skin continued to tingle. "I won't be able to bond with him until his blood is clean."

"Gideon is having the hemodialysis machine brought to your chambers along with a bed he can be properly restrained on. The doctors estimate it'll only take two rounds for his blood to be cleaner than when he was born," Majid reassured Talos.

"He will fight. I have no doubt. And we will most likely have to sedate him," Talos added.

"The sooner you get it done, the better, brother. Your body will not allow you to wait too long."

"It's almost dawn now." Talos looked at the clock on his wall. "Go to bed. Majid will stay up with me to watch over my mate."

My review: 

Do you ever felt the urge to re-read the book exactly the moment after you finished it? Or the moment BEFORE you even finished it? Because I felt this way way before the end, I just wanted to re-read this book, I wanted to be with Talos Bayne and Kikoi again, and I just wanted to spend more time with them in this world. 

This book was more then amazing. I never thought it would be this awesome, it's my new favorite! The story, the characters, the writing style, the world building - everything was perfect. 

Loved Kikoi with Talos and their Daddy/boy thing, it was so sweet. Loved Odin and Majid - and can't wait them to find their third. And Bayne, he was sweet too, and loved how he changed and fell in love with Talos. Talos and Bayne together was really great, and OMG Talos is such a marshmallow inside, he is so cute just awwww♥ And when they mated and Talos' body changed, and oh wow! That scene was so HOT. I love mating and heat scenes, and my only problem with that scene that it was way too short. But the whole book was way too short in my opinion. I just NEED more.

Unique story, interesting storyline, amazing characters and HOT scenes. LOVED this book so much! And really can't wait Majid&Odin's story, and I hope we got to see more Talos&Bayne&Kikoi. Perfect story. Highly recommend it!
