Sometimes, a kiss can knock you out faster than a blow to the head, rendering you unable to think straight.

When drunken Michael Clayton stole a sloppy kiss in a Parisian club, he didn’t know that this would mean war.
War, as in being taught a lesson by a shameless cowboy. War, as in being given a taste of his own medicine. War, as in being left dumbfounded and yearning for more. Blame it on the alcohol, right?
Damn, Mike hated the guy for muddling his assumed straight orientation and raising unwelcome questions.


When noble Troy Hunter stole a revenge kiss from a despicable hot playboy, he didn’t know that it would be all but forgotten months later. Landing a gig on a Rio-bound cruise ship, the rising DJ is dazed when Mike strikes back with a vengeance during their second encounter, fueling his appetite for dominance. Blame it on the blazing sun, right? Damn, Troy hates the guy for pushing all of his buttons and rubbing salt in old wounds.

It shouldn’t have happened, but now all bets are off. Their feelings quickly escalate into something that they aren’t willing to label. It’s easier this way, until it isn’t… because life’s no cruise and some experiences are life-altering. Between Troy’s painful past and Mike’s unsettling present, their future together might be short-lived, unless their insane chemistry compels them to push their limits and each other.

So, which is it? This or that?

This book was previously part of a charity anthology entitled Anyone But You; it was originally published in early 2021.

Since then, I’ve added new content, including a bonus epilogue! Same enemies-to-lovers storyline. Same hot and sweet characters. More focus on certain scenes.

Discover or rediscover Mike and Troy’s story… Most of all, enjoy this new version!

I lured and tricked Tig into a random hookup on social media.
He has no clue he’s anything but random to me.
He has no clue we’ll play by my rules.
He has no clue I’ll seduce him, then dump him because he deserves it.

I refuse to allow manwhores like Tig de Luca to be praised and called Don Juan for collecting women, while I’m labeled as easy for test-driving the countless suitors selected by my old-fashioned father.
I am a woman-empowering French influencer, and I’ll teach the once famous tattoo artist a lesson. It’s risk-free after all; I’m not into cocky alphas and crave a genuine connection.

I didn’t expect the game to quickly escalate into steamy, intriguing, and witty conversations.
I didn’t expect our undeniable virtual chemistry to transfer to real life.
I didn’t expect to unearth the real man beneath the surface and guarded attitude. A widower who erected barriers to protect his wounded heart. A lonely thirty-something who’s not the monster I believed him to be. An omega artist who’s not my type, but that I share some unlikely affinities with.

Still, we both want something casual that doesn’t require a label. I can’t let our infuriating attraction and astonishing compatibility overrule common sense. I’m on a mission after all.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

The Black Angel Book Legend series 

If you want to enjoy Rose and Virgil’s second-chance story of love, secrets, and power, please read the series in chronological order.

VOLUME 1
.99$ for a limited time. Free on KU – Buy it now!

Only a madman would put a monk and a witch together.

That was then, in 9th century Ireland. When the head of The Abhayam employed my calligraphy skills to craft a book of spells that only Deirdre could master, the Black Angel Book was born. Its coveted secrets sealed our fate.
To save us, she cast a spell that would endure the ages. She can’t remember. I’ll never forget. Fallen from grace, our souls wander from one life to the next until we recognize each other. Again.

This is now, in a free-spirited part of Cape Cod. I’m a mere shell of the man that once fought for the woman he loved. I don’t know what she looks like, but her soul yearns for mine. My faceless soulmate has haunted my dreams for so long that when she shows up at my summer seminar, I hesitate.

She has no idea the danger she’s in. She has no idea the lengths I’ll go to in order to keep her safe. She has no idea the magic I inherited is both a gift and a curse. If I can rekindle her memory, she’ll regain her power, and together, we can make this legend a reality.

For eternity.

VOLUME 2
Free on KU – Buy it now!

Only a stupid girl would question the summer obsession who helped her to feel again.

Afraid of exposing her wounded heart to the wrong person, again. Afraid of risking everything for the wrong reasons. Afraid of admitting that her rational mind has been wrong all along.

Urban legend. Magical book. Destined soulmates. These make no more sense than my uncontrollable attraction to my teacher. Am I wrong to overthink my relationship with a man whose secrets threaten my sanity?
And just when I thought all hope was gone, a fun, hot, and willing knight in shining armor saves the day.

I never expected to be torn between two very different men. I never expected to follow my body’s lead. I never expected this summer in Cape Cod to be a game changer.

Mind-blowing.

VOLUME 3
Free on KU – Buy it now!

Only a heartless monster would disregard his sudden misfortune and continue to follow this path.

The summer’s gone and so is the long-lost soulmate that he let slip through his talented fingers.

Perhaps my eerie secrets shouldn’t have stopped me the first time around. After all, the calligrapher-monk and his witch lover found a way, so why not us?

I’ve already overcome so many obstacles. I’ll do anything in my power to get her back. I fear nothing. Not the distance that I voluntarily put between us. Not the rival that she intentionally put in my way. Not the time that we’re unfortunately wasting.
She’s been offered a new life in New York, but that won’t stop me from showing her that appearances can be deceiving.

We may be apart for now, but our attraction is meant to be, so we’re inevitable.

Right?

VOLUME 4
Free on KU – Buy it now!

Only an ungrateful bastard would refuse to thank his lucky stars.

Lucky that he fell into the lap of one of the most prominent members of The Abhayam. Lucky that his skills landed him a well-deserved life in New York. Lucky that he accidentally unearthed the person his organization has hunted for centuries.

Until my luck ran out when my first Thanksgiving party turned into a disaster.

The star-crossed lovers should have been punished long ago; the ones who host their souls need to pay. Nothing can stop me. Not them. Not my supposed father who taught me well. Not the serial killer and his ridiculous trademark bouquet. His threat to the lives of my fellow solders must be handled. I’ll show no mercy.

I’m ready to up my game, prove myself, and figure out how to master the Black Angel Book’s ultimate spell.

Once and for all.

VOLUME 5
Free on KU – Buy it now

Only a devoted monk would deny forbidden feelings that conflict with the God he serves.

He would not obsess over a woman. He would not seduce. He would not reveal unbelievable truths.

Good thing I’m not that monk anymore, although I do host his bewitched soul. Oddly enough, my best friend and my stubborn girl become suddenly inseparable on a Parisian trip that proves fruitful.
They help each other cope with a painful reality. She helps him evolve into a better person without realizing it. He helps her jumpstart her memory, opening her eyes to lies that she formerly embraced.

Thanks to an extra push from a dreamcatcher, her true nature is strengthening gradually, making my rightful claim clear.

Nonnegotiable.

VOLUME 6
Free on KU – Buy it now

Only a rookie witch would attempt to turn her dreams into reality.

Like training in secret to push the boundaries of her gifts. Like causing the man of her dreams to appear out of thin air. Like making traitors pay for their misdeeds.

The dreamcatcher has opened my mind to a new reality that my rational side would never have suspected. As for my awakening gifts, some would call them a miracle. Others would call them a curse. I’m undecided.

Interpretation of good and bad is a simple matter of where you stand. I stand tall. I stand proud. I stand happy. So, for your own good, you’d better not stand in my way!

Got it?


VOLUME 7
Free on KU – Buy it now

Only an unusual cat would know that having multiple lives is no a myth.

Myths are meant to be read about, not experienced. Myths are filled with boundless hope and insane dreams. Myths are what spur believers forward.

Well, believe me, plenty of myths are part of your reality.
Witchcraft.
Spells.
Warlocks.

This was my reality, once upon a time, until I was trapped within a foreign body centuries ago. I’ve learned to tinker with my magic until I find the right people… And I think I just did.

The many lives I’ve lived and the vast knowledge I’ve gained will pay off.

At last.

VOLUME 8
Free on KU – Buy it now

Only the darkest soul would seek limitless power.


Revenge. War. Cast the spell of eternity.

Centuries later, it’s time to play again. Some pawns changed. Some remained. Others are back from the past. Now is the time to pick a side…

As life throws me curveballs, I struggle with my choices. Owning my forgotten gifts taught me that I was a queen, indeed… but which kind?

My journey proved that the infamous urban legend was truer—and closer to home— than I’d ever anticipated. I cannot allow the Black Angel Book to fall into the wrong hands.
If an ancient spell between star-crossed lovers defines my present, I’ll learn to master it so I can shape my future with the man I love.

Forever… or not.
