About the Author

I’m a contemporary romance author , and I am just about to complete my first series of books called The Into The Series.

I live in Scotland with my husband and three amazing children. I live in a very small village in the country so writing makes it easier to have friends,
even if they are in my head.

I have always been a huge reader but it wasn’t until 2013 that I was…lets say encouraged…to write my first book. I published on my birthday in 2014 and
have been on a crazy roller coaster ever since.

My favourite things to read about are tattooed alphas…and if they have a dirty mouth its all the better!

I have met so many awesome people on this journey and I never imaged talking to some of my favourite authors, never mind calling some of them my friend.

If you ever go to a signing and there is a Scottish redhead fangirling in the corner….well thats probably me!

I walk past my dark bedroom and I realise my mistake when I’m grabbed from behind by a strong pair of arms. I can’t believe he was hiding, and I can’t
believe I fell for it. A scream leaves my throat as Noah’s arms tighten around my waist and he lifts me off the floor.

“Got you now, little girl. Whatcha gonna do about it?” The words are spoken close to my ear, his breath fanning over my face. I’m torn between being scared
of what’s about to happen and being more turned on that ever before, but my decision is made when I feel him moving towards … the bathroom I think? I try
to pry his hands off me but I know it’s going to be useless.

“Noah, what are you doing? This is silly. Lets just call a truce and go tidy up the hall? You don’t want anything to be stolen. This is a bad
neighbourhood.” I feel his body vibrate and his laughter reaches my ear before he speaks.

“Nice try, Angel. That’s all tidied up, your door is locked … it’s just you and me.” How the hell had he cleaned up so quickly? I must have been trying to
calm down longer than I thought.

He turns our bodies around and I see we’re in the bathroom, and he’s moving me towards the bathtub. No, no, no. He wouldn’t? I struggle harder but he’s
just too strong to fight against.

“Noah, don’t you dare. I swear if you do this I will make you suffer. It won’t be worth it. Noah, no!” He doesn’t stop moving, my pleas falling on deaf
ears as he moves me under the showerhead and reaches his hand out for the cold tap.

“Noah, please. I’m sorry okay? I promise never to laugh at you, no matter what epically stupid thing you do.”

“Wrong answer.” He turns the tap and within seconds freezing cold is spraying over me, drenching through my clothes and making my breath catch in my chest.

Little Wolf by Amelie S. Duncan

book blitz



TITLE: Little Wolf
AUTHOR: Amelie S. Duncan
GENRE: Dark Adult Erotica




When twenty-three year old Tala Velsik appears in a last minute performance art piece, she has no idea that public nudity will be the least of her worries. Wearing nothing but silver paint and a pair of antlers, her body is bared to hundreds of eyes, but one penetrating stare simmers through the others, Adrian Caro.

Adrian Caro is one of the world’s most famous directors and photographers, but with striking features and a body made for sin, most would guess he belonged in front of the camera.
Of course, the last thing Tala needs is romance, even with a walking Adonis. Mounting bills, a dead end job and a set of childhood memories most therapists would pale at; love is low on her list. Assuming, of course, her new admirer allows her to have a say in the matter.

Shocked yet thrilled by Adrian’s passionate domination, Tala can’t help but feel she’s standing on quicksand. For all his wealth, fame and talent, Adrian is tormented by his own demons; hiding secrets big enough to destroy them both.


“No, Monique, we are going to Sacred Coeur tomorrow,” Sergio said.
She pouted, but Sophie walked over and hugged her, kissing her cheek. A pang went through my chest at the love and comfort between these two women. It scraped against a deep longing in me to have a similar connection with my mother. I stroked the knife wound on my forearm, remembering that it had been earned one of the times I had trusted in and tried for that kind of comfort.
“Tala? Tala? Someone give Tala a hug, I think she could use one right now,” I blinked at her. “What? Huh?”
“You were staring, and you looked sad,” Fatou observed.
My cheeks warmed. “I was just lost in thought. I don’t need a hug.” My tone was harsher than I meant, and Fatou bristled. I immediately felt guilty.
“Sorry. I didn’t mean—” I tried to recover.
“Nothing’s wrong with getting a hug,” Fatou smiled, seeming to have already forgotten my tone. She came around the counter and wrapped her arms around me as I chewed my cheek to stop from crying.
What is wrong with me?
Adrian took over from there, kissing my face and cheeks with soft assurances.

author interview

When did you begin writing?

All my life I have been a storyteller. My younger years consisted of making up stories and skits to share with my family. When I was a teenager, I wrote more poetry and short stories than anyone else I knew. As I got older, my stories became darker and I drew from experiences surrounding a tough patch in my life.
In college, writing was academic and I put aside my personal stories. But a few years ago, I began writing again; only it didn’t come as easily as I remembered. I spent a lot of time studying and developing stories. I was always a lover of paranormal romances, but I progressed to erotica, and erotic romances. I shared my writing with my husband and friends. Friends were a bit more reserved about what I was creating, but my husband loved how alive I was when I was writing and encouraged me to pursue this dream. I am forever thankful for his support.

What genre do you write and why?

I write contemporary erotic romance stories, but I also include darker elements in my writing. I’m an avid reader of dark erotica, erotica, erotic romances, paranormal romances and new adult stories. They all inspire me creatively. So, I write what I truly love and enjoy reading and hope those stories will resonate with like-minded readers.

Can you tell us a little about your book?

Little Wolf is truly, at its heart, the love story of my heroine, Tala Velsik. She has a had a tough life growing up with her unmediated, paranoid schizophrenic mother and an absentee father. In her teen years, she was adopted by the family of Jax Molsom, her best and only friend.
She faced her haunted pass and challenging life with strength and resilience, managing to take care of herself and all those around her. In her pursuit to do just that, and pressing forward in her chaotic and difficult life, she helps her brother with his dreams and ends up crossing the path of famed photographer and director Adrian Caro.
Adrian’s life is quite a contrast of Tala’s, but he is also personally unfulfilled. So he makes a deal with the devil in his pursuit of happiness. As their worlds collide, the secret he is hiding becomes his biggest challenge of the story. Ultimately, this secret threatens everything.
I am long-winded, but purposely being vague to avoid spoiling the story. Ultimately, it is a story about finding love, care and family. These things come at a price, and it isn’t always perfect or easy, but even the most damaged among us can find it.

What is the inspiration behind your book Little Wolf?

Little Wolf was first and foremost inspired by my work in the mental health field. My experience is with children, teens and women like my heroine, Tala Velsik. Their lives are often tragic and chaotic at times, but many of them remain strong and resilient. They are also extremely tough on the outside, but their hearts are so beautiful. Their loyalty a wonder. So this book was inspired by all the Tala’s I fell in love with over the years.
The location where the majority of the novel takes place also has a special spot in my heart, as I studied there and always wanted to write about the beauty and kindness of the people I met while abroad. Overall, the family and community there are so unique that I felt this was the perfect setting for Tala and Adrian’s story.

How did you come up with the idea for the cover?

Actually, my cover designer found the photo, as I was indecisive. I loved the picture, and the way it turned out is beautiful. I am very happy with it.
Name your all-time favorite book?
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

If your book was made into a movie who would you cast and why?

If you’ve ever viewed my Pinterest account, you know I have a healthy obsession with David Gandy, so Adrian Caro would be him. Although, I always think of Adrian with a deep sultry voice, but I like his accent. A wonderful blogger brought my attention to Emilia Clarke for Tala Velsik. Blythe Danner for Sophie Caro. For the rest, I’m not as certain.

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

I don’t really believe I ever thought I could be a writer. My friends and family always told me I was a great storyteller, but it seemed like a dream so far out of reach. I did well in story writing throughout my educational life, but it was only recent and through the encouragement of my husband that I began to really develop stories. It didn’t all come together at once, but I found wonderful people to help me and I’m continuously working to be better. So I hope to one day truly consider myself a writer.

How long does it take you to write a book?

Writing a book doesn’t take nearly as long as developing, editing and publishing it. I find the first draft is pretty quick, but I would never publish that because it’s always awful! I would say for Little Wolf, it took a few months to write it, but much more time to develop the story with my development editor and beta readers.

Do you have a sequel or new books coming out in 2015?

Yes. I have a series entitled Tiger Lily which I plan to release soon. As for a sequel to Little Wolf, I haven’t written one yet, but I may consider doing so in the future.

The Keys to Jericho by Ren Alexander



TITLE: The Keys to Jericho
AUTHOR: Ren Alexander




Wild Sparks’ Hadley Beckett isn’t the only Beckett with a broken past and a story to tell…

Thirty-year-old Jared Beckett has always lived his life unconsciously, contemptuously, single-handedly, and on his own terms, not caring what people think of him, or thinking much of the people who do care. His mother’s abandoning him when he was a toddler laid the bitter foundation in which he proceeded to build upon, but that was only the launch of his downward spiral. His father tried to do the best he could as a single parent, and even though Jared was an honor student and is now a talented structural engineer, he’s always felt slighted and compared to his older sister Hadley, increasing his hostility.

Despite his antipathy and aversion to being close to anyone, becoming a master at hiding his internal struggles, he has two friends, Dash and Rio, but even they don’t know the extent of his eternal anguish. His friends tirelessly try to change his life for the better, yet their efforts to help him find a love connection are fruitless because of Jared’s refusal to acknowledge the existence of love, feeling distrustful of people from his own mother’s inability to love him.

Adding to his foundation of resentment, and unbeknownst to anyone, when Jared was 16, he had met a girl in school who made him question his enduring doubts. They became fast friends, but feeling oddly different about her and not knowing how or why he wanted something more from their friendship, he became frustrated when she didn’t seem to return his advances. Their friendship grew strained, forced, and painful. On his last day of school, he finally said goodbye to her and didn’t look back, yet never moving forward, caught up in her memory, and regrets of what could have been.

Nearly 14 years after he said goodbye, Jared has returned to his hometown of Annapolis for the summer, as well as to his dark memories. However, with a new light illuminating them, revelations about his covert friendship are revealed, and as his secretive nature and progressing resentment deteriorates any relationships he has left, in an unexpected move, he reaches out to help her. With her in his life again, will he become even more entrenched in his acrimony or is she the only one who can bring down his walls, unlock Jared Beckett’s unconscious heart, and revive him before it’s too late for both of them?

This Too Shall Pass by Jettie Woodruff


Small town Cedar Springs is the
perfect country setting where everybody knows your name and your business.
Alexis McKinley was born and raised in Brady County. Alone, but never lonely,
Alexis lived with her four-legged best friend. Her time was either spent
remodeling an old farmhouse or striving in her photography studio.
Happy with where life had taken her, she wasn’t expecting
Cory Baker. Alexis was content without love. She hated the drama of a
relationship, and declared the right to grow old, being known as the cat lady
minus the cats. Knowing from past experience that love wasn’t in the cards for
her, Alexis spent her life devoted to friends and family. That was enough. It
had always been enough. Ambivalent about Cory Baker from the beginning, Alexis
didn’t see him coming, not until it was too late anyway.

Cory made her see love through new eyes. The love she’d known before wasn’t even in the same ballpark. This could hurt…
