Luke Kemble enjoys the luxury of having Violet, all of her magic and all of her beauty, all to himself. What happens to Luke's illusion of reality when he and the love of his life are threatened by another man, a dangerous one that holds grudges and anger?
Carter Borden never fully recovered from the heartbreak of his ex-wife leaving him. What happens to a damaged man who begins to believe in magic once again?
Follow two men -- Luke and Carter -- as they learn the one truth about Violet's magic (that it's an only an illusion) and the one truth about her love (that it's not).
Avangeline Price, a strong willed, tough as nails, zero tolerance for games woman who believes love only exists in books and movies.
James is accustomed to women falling at his feet. Avangeline has an intense dislike of celebrities and an even bigger dislike of James Black.
She's unimpressed. He's intrigued. Both have preconceived notions.
But… sometimes the unscripted territory is what matters most.
When Hollywood meets Louisiana, can real life rival the movies?
She attended Southeastern Louisiana University and Louisiana State University where she majored in Mass Communications, centering her studies in Journalism. Unfortunately, life intervened and she never finished her studies.
When she's not chained to her laptop pounding out sexy stories she can usually be found playing ‘Supermom’, reading, gardening (playing in the dirt), listening to music and dancing like a fool, cooking, baking, crafting, or catching up on her family oriented blog.
When Sadie VonRouge moves to Casterton, Oregon to live with her aunt, she expected a sleepy little town; the perfect backdrop for her to start piecing back together her life. She wants nothing more than a normal start to her freshman year of college.
Normal is the last thing she’s going to get.
The night she was attacked, it’d been a wolf that chased her down. A wolf that tackled her to the ground. A wolf that began sniffing her. Then she’d opened her eyes, and she’d come face-to-face with him.
But she was delusional. She knew this. There’d been no man.
At least, that’s what she tells herself over and over, even while fighting back the memory of how sinfully gorgeous the man had been, or how viciously he’d growled out that one word:
Sadie doesn’t know what is happening to her, or why she’s beginning to exhibit odd symptoms after the attack. All she knows is that her world has been drastically changed. She has no idea how much, or how serious that man’s claim was. Not until he comes back into her life, demanding the one thing that he owns above anything else.
Thrust into a new world, Sadie is going to be forced to deal with a reality she never expected.
And a dominating, scary, dangerous male that might just not give her any choice but to accept her new life . . . and the fact that he comes along with it.
“You belong to me. I own you. Forever.”
She loves everything paranormal from the movies, television, books, and adventures to haunted places. When she isn't dreaming of werewolves, witches, and all things that go bump in the night, she is busy creating hot and romantic stories that bring to life all these creatures in their most alpha form.
Her stories feature kick-butt female leads, hot dominate alphas and a whole lot of wicked trouble. Her love for books has taken from being an avid reader, to a book blogger and now an author.
Her debut novella, Red, is the first in the paranormal erotic VonRouge series.

Everything is new. The old no longer has a place here. Physical items are easy to replace. I'm constantly battling the ones that aren't.
Every thought and memory I have is stained.
You weren't even there for half of them.
How is she still present even though she left?
I can do this. I’m going to survive losing her.
*** This is the second book of the His Series, and it DOES end with a cliffhanger. The final book of the His Series, Finding Me, will release June 1, 2015***
What adds salt to my wounds is the fact that the world keeps turning. People continue waking up and going about their day. The sun rises and sets. I hear kids laugh and play, neighbors greet one another, and birds sing, and all the while I wonder how? How does the entire world appear to be surviving this nightmare of losing her?
Hank comes to visit in June. I still haven’t heard from Ace, and yet I’m still staying at my mom’s. I can’t leave. I can’t go back to that house. I’d moved rooms shortly after she left, and now reside in the guest room on the main floor. It’s better this way. There aren’t any pictures of her in here or random memories, like the one of her sitting on my bean bag chair when I was sick last summer. I also don’t have to face the window that looks out onto hers.
Hank knows that I know mom sent for him, hoping that he’d be able to “help” me. She of all people should know that having Hank around isn’t going to help me. He’s fucking married to the love of his life; he doesn’t have a fucking clue about the shit that I’m going through.
Of all things, Hank wants to go camping. I’m sure he thinks that getting away will help. He doesn’t understand that moving rooms has helped me realize I could go to Antarctica, and things wouldn’t change; the distance isn’t going to make the pain any less.
When we get camp set up, Hank opens a cooler and passes me a beer with a giant, shit-eating grin, like we’ve just overcome a huge hurdle. Deciding that I shouldn’t rain on his little douchebag tea party quite yet, I accept the beer with merely a grimace before taking a long swig. Before long, that single swig becomes a chug, and then a guzzle as I consume more alcohol than what three people probably should.
I sit by the fire and close my eyes. My mind automatically reaches back into that locked and forbidden drawer to pull out the image of Ace, striving to recall the sound of her laugh, the feel of her touch. It brings me back to our camping trip last September, when Jameson announced that was what he wanted to do for his birthday.
Mariah grew up in a tiny town outside of Portland, Oregon, where she spent the majority of her time immersed in the pages of books that she both read and created.
She has a love for all things that include her sons, good coffee, books, travel, and dark chocolate. She also has a deep passion for the stories she writes, and hopes readers enjoy the journeys she takes them on, as much as she loves creating them.

DEFENDING HER - Cover Reveal!!
Title: Defending Her
Genre: Erotic Legal Drama
Release Date: February 16th 2015
SYNOPSIS:What’s it like to fall in love? To have everything you’ve ever wanted in your perfect woman? To feel like your life is about to change forever, because you’ve found someone who completes you? Someone who makes you want to do better in everything that you’re involved in, because you know that they’re the only person who believes in you. What’s it like to have found someone who you finally believe is worthy of your heart? And how devastating is it when that one perfect person… is accused of murder? Jason Adrien is a new defense attorney at his father’s law firm. Constantly struggling to live up to his recently deceased father’s name, Jason finds comfort in the arms of Valerie Benedict, an enigmatic nurse who’s as secretive as she is gorgeous. The attraction between the two is undeniable, and the passion is more than either of them can stand. Regularly meeting up with Valerie to turn mundane nights into real life erotic fantasies, Jason finds himself falling for her against his will. But, everything changes when he gets a phone call in the middle of the night. According to the voice on the other end of the phone, Valerie has been arrested and accused of murder. As Jason listens to the details surrounding Valerie’s arrest, he realizes his world is crashing down around him. Everything he thought he knew about Valerie Benedict has been a lie. The person Jason was falling for couldn’t possibly be the same person being accused of this brutal, unthinkable murder. Or could she? Jason will have the opportunity to find out everything he needs to know about Valerie, because she has chosen him to defend her. As Jason and Valerie cross the line between attorney and client, and dive into a full-on conflict of interest, the two of them embark on an erotic rollercoaster ride with twists and turns at every corner. If Valerie is innocent, does Jason have what it takes to prove it to the world that believes she’s guilty? This case is more than a make-or-break for his career. Valerie’s life is on the line. And Jason will have to risk everything… Defending Her. *This Book Is Intended For Mature Audiences*

Still not ready for February 16th? Check out this exclusive excerpt from W.S. Greer's Defending Her...“I didn’t know if I would have to spend the entire trial in jail or not,” she continues, inching even closer. “But, just like I always knew you would, you saved me, Jason. I knew you would save me, and I’m so thankful that you did it. I’m so thankful that you’re here.” Valerie moves over even more and her hand grazes my leg. The contact shoots a bolt of lightning up my body and I instantly feel myself getting hard. “I told you I believed you, and that I wouldn’t lose this trial. I intend to keep my word,” I say, but there’s more that needs to be said. “But, I’ve also been thinking about this, Valerie. Now that you’re out, and we’ve been to court, and we’re about to start prepping to go back to court for the actual trial for your life, me and you can’t keep doing what we were doing before. It’s unethical, and if anyone found out, I’d be disbarred. We just can’t keep doing it.” My words don’t seem to affect Valerie in the least. She places her hand on my leg and lets it slide up the inside of my thigh. I know that I should push her hand away. I should get up and walk out of here right now, before I do something that could ruin my career—but I can’t. “I hear what you’re saying,” Valerie replies, still using that husky, enticing voice. “But, remind me—what exactly were we doing before?” She lets her hand rest on my inner thigh and waits for me to respond. “You know what we were doing... This has been wrong from the beginning, and it’s still wrong now. We can’t do this.” “It was wrong? It didn’t feel wrong to me. It felt perfect. It felt like it was meant to happen, and it felt like we were a perfect fit together. It felt like you were made to be inside of me. So, did it not feel good to you?” Ugh.
“Of course it felt good to me. It felt amazing,” I reply, but then I catch myself. “Stop it! I know what you’re doing. We can’t do this, Valerie."
DEFENDING HER hits shelves February 16th!! Get ready for a crazy, hot ride!!
