Cess Lamil is determined to get her college degree with honors and start her career. Her plans change quickly, when the new neighbors moves in down the street. Draken, the controlling and obnoxious neighbor, is all she can think about.
Despite her initial dislike, Cess feels strangely drawn to the mysterious, handsome Draken, but she soon learns that Draken has dark secrets.
Draken Draglen is in town to get the family business in order. He lives by one rule: only sleep with women of his own kind. When Cess walks down the street to introduce herself, Draken fears he is going to break his rule. He is determined to stay away from her, fearing his dark secret may be revealed, but his need for Cess is too strong. Draken makes a decision that could change not only his life, but that of his family as well.
“Hello, Cess,” Draken says, moving closer to me. I can’t move. He looks so sexy walking towards me. Everything south is wet. I feel like a fool. I can’t keep my eyes off him as he approaches me. He stands a foot away, just looking at me, gliding his purple eyes over my body. My breasts instantly harden when we make eye contact. We stare at each other without speaking.
“I was invited,” I say, finding my voice.
“Oh, well I like entertainment also, Cess, besides, remember, you owe me something,” Draken says, coming closer. I feel the need to kiss him, like in my dream. I want him.
“I, I, umm, don’t owe you,” I say, feeling really hot now. I should go.
“You owe me, Cess, and I want a dance. I hear from my brothers you can dance. Now I want a private viewing of your… skills,” he says, not stopping the eye contact.
“Draken, I’m sorry for coming to your home, I will leave now,” I say, trying to get past him, but instantly I feel his hands on my waist, holding me in place.
“You will dance with my brothers, and not dance with me? Why? I’m not as handsome as they are?” he asks, looking into my eyes, searching. I see the other brothers are not leaving this time. It’s as if they are waiting for the answer to a question, more than just a dance.
“I thought you didn’t want me at your house, now you want a dance?” I say, frowning a little.
“You have such bravery about you, Cess. Yes, I want you to dance for me, and then I will dance for you; if you don’t like it, then you may leave,” Draken says, with a small smile. Yikes, I could climax with that look he just gave me. Please don’t let me go back on my promise.
“So, what’s it going to be?” Showken says. I turn and see all eyes are on me. What are they waiting for?
“Fine, I’ll do one dance,” I say. Draken turns me around to face me, placing a very slow, tender kiss on my lips. Shit! I’m in freaking trouble.
I finished reading Draken last night or should I say this morning around 2am my eyes were burning and I was tired as hell lol but my brain did not care it just wanted more and more. I loved Cess she was such strong beautiful educated and smart character. She didn’t take any of Drakens crap lol. Draken was such a hot Alpha Male. I would love to have my own Real life Draken Please! This book was so well written it engaged your imagination and pulled you in making you feel apart of the story and allowing you to almost see it in your head. The secondary characters are awesome and I hope they all get their own books! I absolutely loved this book and can not wait for Showken’s story!!!! If you have not read this book seriously go get it NOW you will not be disappointed!! Thank you Author Solease M Barner for writing such a awesome story!!~ Kera M.

An erotic, paranormal love story with dragons. Suitable for mature adults only.
Marilyn Carrington has been hurt by everyone who has ever claimed to love her. Now, she only trusts herself and her .45 caliber pistol. When the sexiest man she has ever seen walks into the bar where she works, she stays clear of him, ignoring his advances, but when he takes the hint and leaves her alone, she finds herself missing him. Marilyn finds she doesn’t care about the danger she senses around him; she wants to know the feeling of love again. Marilyn’s only problem now is whether Showken is really ready for her.
Showken Draglen is known for being a playboy. Loving his freedom, he has never committed to a woman, and doesn’t ever plan to. But when he sees Marilyn, he will do whatever it takes to have her. Unused to rejection, he becomes even more determined to win her. But deep down Showken knows that when she finds out what he truly is, she will run, leaving him with the only option he knows, using his power.
“Uhh, no. It’s just me,” I say, really not wanting to talk about myself. “Do you have brothers or sisters?” I ask, giving him the same question to see how he likes the hot seat.
“Yes, there are ten of us altogether, nine boys and one girl,” Showken says, with a smirk. I wonder what that is about.
“Wow, your mother must really like kids. I couldn’t imagine having that many kids,” I say, taking out the butter and brown sugar for the sweet potatoes. I can’t wait to eat.
“Well, we have big families, and it’s kind of a tradition. Anything under seven is unheard of. How many kids do you want?”
I look up at him as if he’s confessed a murder.
“I will never have kids, ever,” I say, turning away from him and feeling tears building up in my eyes. I feel him standing behind me and I can’t move or speak. I turn and he pulls me into his arms, and the tears are pouring down. I’m a product of bad blood; I won’t take the risk of bringing a child into this world, knowing where it comes from. I wipe my tears and turn to finish dinner. We don’t speak again until I’m pulling the cupcakes out of the fridge.
“Showken, do you want a cupcake or two,” I say, as he has eaten everything already. After I fixed my plate and told him to eat as much as he wanted, he finished the other three stuffed chicken breasts and all of the potatoes. I couldn’t get upset, because he ate in silence and seemed to enjoy every bite.
“Yes, I’ll have one,” he says, moving to the sofa in front of the television. I see Bruiser is stuffed as he lies on his side, watching. I walk over and hand him a double chocolate cupcake; he sets it down on the table in front of him. I glance over and look at his chest, again. He has the best body ever.
“Showken, you don’t like chocolate?” I ask peeling down my cupcake paper. I take a bite, and see him watching me, licking his lips.
“Yes, I love chocolate, but I’ll wait to eat mine. You enjoy,” he says, and his eyes roam my body. I can’t eat with him watching me like this. I take one more bite, and set it down. I stand and his hand touches my knee, oh, my body is way too responsive to him. I look up and he is smiling.
“Wait, I want to eat my dessert now.” He gives a wicked smile, and I think my eyes will come out of my head. I’ve never had a guy so smooth. “Don’t I get to eat my dessert, Marilyn?” he asks, but I’m not sure why he’s asking. I know he’s speaking of something else. I’m 27 years old and I know when I see a horny man.
This is Book 2 in The Draglen Brother Series. I absolutely loved this story I waited impatiently for it to be released and once it was I was NOT disappointed Marylin is a kick ass Female lead and I think She would be awesome to hang out with, Her Best Friend Jasmine was such a fun character to read about and their interactions in the story had me laughing out loud. Showken is your typical Sexy Alpha Male Playboy until he meets Marylin then it’s Game Over. The chemistry between Showken and Marylin is so hot I thought my kindle might Combust. Marylin has such a horrific and abusive past that it takes A lot of work and love on Showken’s part to get her to come around. Oh boy the things that man does with a Cupcake WOW I will never look at them the Same again. This was a great story of Love strength and over coming your past but it was also a light, Sexy, Erotic Laugh out loud Kind of read!~ Kera M.

The Secrets of the Ghost-Sleeper: Holiday, A girl after my own heart. Love everything about her and her double love. What are her secrets?~ Renita M.
WHO — Holiday Towley – wife, mother, wedding planner and secret government assassin. WHAT — A young child under threat. A secret power with unknown consequences. A security organization gone rogue. WHERE — Breathtaking locations around the World. WHY — Holiday’s life was complicated enough when all she had to do was plan weddings and kill people. Now with her daughter threatened by the people she should have been able most to trust, and her marriage threatened by the handsome and enigmatic David, she faces the ruin of all she has worked for.
I never thought my life would be this chaotic. Hell had always been a place I knew was my destiny, but never did I think I would be in hell on earth. My husband hates me for kidnapping him . My sister is in danger because of the choices I have made. The love that should be strictly for my husband is now being shared with a past lover, and my daughter is being sought after. That should be all that is wrong, yet now that I have discovered my true identity, the world I live in is no longer the same. I was once called a Sleeper for not knowing. The title has changed, for I have embraced my magical gift and I have decided to save my family at all costs, taking no prisoners and doing what I do best, killing.
