From the author of Ricochet and Backfire comes a dark erotic suspense serial …

Episode One: Dylan will do anything to escape her current nightmare, even if it means falling into the tangled web of a ruthless killer.

Series Synopsis:

Ripley

They call me RIP.
I’m a killer. A murderer. A psychopath.
In the eyes of the righteous, I’m a monster, born of sin and depravity.
I want to protect her, but I’m not a good man.
I want to love her, but I no longer feel.
She gets under my skin, though, and has awakened something inside of me.
Something I’d kill for.
I’m not her savior—not even close. In fact, I’m worse than the hell she’s already suffered.
I’m her vengeance. Tit for tat, as they say.
And if she’s not careful, I’ll be her ruin.

Dylan

For months, I’ve watched him.
I’ve fantasized him as my savior, my lover. My ticket out of the hell I’ve lived in for the last six years.
I never dreamed he’d be my nightmare.
Had I known what he really is, I’d have never gotten in the car that night, but life is full of cause and effect.
And sometimes the choice on offer isn’t a choice at all.
It’s the result of something already in motion, and we’re merely left to survive the ripple effect.

*This is an erotic suspense/erotic romance not recommended for readers under the age of 18 due to graphic violence and sex

SEX_THERAPY_1

Chase Walker: Founder of C.W. Consult. Sex therapist extraordinaire.

And, without question, always in control.

After years of schooling his emotions, Chase takes pride in his self-composure and firm lack of commitment. It takes only one, fresh-faced redhead in need of his services for all of that to fall to pieces.

Abigail O’Shay is everything Chase isn’t. Sweet. Innocent. A virgin.

Chase has never wanted to defile anything more.

Except, if that whole therapist-client barrier isn’t enough of an issue, Chase’s own demons are only too happy to cock-block all the sinful fantasies treatments he has in mind for his latest client.

Then, mark your calendars!

February 20th 2017!

Announcing Midnight Fling …

Good afternoon, Lovely Folks, I have some news to share and I’ve been waiting WEEKS to do so! If you’re a member of The Hollerers, or you’re a Newsletter Subscriber, then you likely already know of this news. However, if you’re neither, then read on …

 

Over the past however many months (possibly longer), there have been questions about myself and Keri Lake collaborating on a story (psst, she’s announcing this, too, if ya wanna read).

We considered this. Trust me, we totally considered it. Hell, we even reached a point where we discussed story ideas and how a collaboration might work. However, there was a massive and glaring couple of glitches to why it wouldn’t work as a straight-up collaboration.

  1. My snail-speed writing pace versus Keri’s much-much-much-MUCH faster one.
  2. Whereas Keri loves pressure, I flail and fail to write much of anything that’s readable.
  3. I’m a linear writer—which means I write from start to finish—whereas Keri is a complete weirdo who writes the end of her book, works her way backward with the main points of the story, and then fleshes it out with all the linking bits that belong in between. Like I said: weirdo. 😉

And for these reasons, we just kept talking about collaborating—even getting ourselves excited about collaborating—but never got past the point of worrying about all the obstacles that would prevent us fully collaborating and not acting like a couple of teens in permanent pre-menstrual mode.

And then came a kinda solution that fit with both our schedules and that we were suddenly excited might actually work. Instead of collaborating on a singular title, we could collaborate on a ‘branding’ for a genre we’re both ready to dip into.

You see, I want my next project to be a dip into the ER pool. And Keri has been thinking of dipping into the pool, too. So, we figured: Hey, why not get matching swimsuits, a couple inflatable balls, maybe a water shooter each, so we get extra wet …

Too much?

Anyhoo, we came up with the idea to run a branding called Midnight Fling. Any erotic romance books each of us decides to write and publish can be done so under this brand with the full backing and support of the other author in the Midnight Fling family. And rather than trying to frustratingly try collaborating a singular story, we’d split our efforts into two stories. But each and every story we put under the MF branding will go through a vetting system between the two of us. So if mine needs dirtying up, Keri will guide me. If hers need dirtying down, vice versa.

And they will be dirty. Much, much dirtier than you’re used to seeing from me, that’s for sure.

And then there’s the added bonus.

Each of our stories will be quick and dirty reads, published in episodes. Which means ALL episodes will be available for pre-order AT ONCE.  And each episode will only be spaced (hopefully) 2 weeks apart, so not a long time to wait for the next fix—yay!

And if you’re wondering why episodes, it’s because:

A) They’re easier to write and edit around Keri’s existing deadlines, and it’s less intimidating a thought for me, trying to get these written as quickly as Keri and I hope they will be

B) They allow for more visibility on Amazon, as they’ll be priced at only 99 cents each

Dependent upon how well the first two series are received, we may well (translate: probably definitely) add to the Midnight Fling branding with even more erotic romances. And with one of the initial series’ straight up contemporary erotic romance, and the other dystopian erotic romance, there will be something (hopefully) to please everyone’s naughty side.

So for those who like the short and dirty reads, keep your eyes open, because we have something saweet a-coming your way:

SEX THERAPY by J.A. Belfield and RIPPLE EFFECT by Keri Lake

What’s more, all of Keri’s episodes are up on Goodreads for adding, and the first four episodes of SEX THERAPY are up there, too. You can add them by following the links below:

ADD SEX THERAPY TO YOUR GOODREADS 

ADD RIPPLE EFFECT TO YOUR GOODREADS

And for those of you who aren’t into this saucier genre, please don’t think this means I’m abandoning the Holloway Pack. It was always my intention to branch out into a new genre (or genres) between the last few instalments, and a new Holloway Pack book WILL come your way as soon as its time in my schedule rolls around. ☺♥☺

Thanks for reading.

As temperatures begin dipping and nights grow long, we lock ourselves inside our warm houses of an evening, safe with our families, and it’s so easy to forget that there are those out there in need.

With the Christmas period fast approaching, this time of year isn’t always filled with happiness and anticipation for the upcoming celebration.

Author Keri Lake has previously worked to raised funds for charities in need of donations during this season. This year, she approached me about an idea she had, and so this year, I am excited to announce that I’ll be partnering up with her, both as J.A. Belfield, and as my pen name Jenna Lyn Field.

For this year’s donation, Keri and myself are hoping to help make Christmas special for both Detroit (US) and Birmingham (UK) kids.

From now through until Halloween, a percent of sales from Darkness & Light AND Keri’s dark contemporary romance Ricochet will be used to purchase and donate copies of my alter ego’s special edition Christmas coloring book to both Birmingham Children’s Hospital here in the UK AND Detroit Goodfellows in the US from Keri!

Colour Me Funky Christmas Coloring Book contains 25 days of Christmas colouring fun and will make a great gift for all ages!

In addition, Keri will also make a donation to her favorite youth shelter, Covenant House, a sanctuary for young people who have nowhere to go.

All donations will be made on behalf of Keri Lake’s Caring Readers and J.A. Belfield’s Hollerers.

#Giveaway + Blog Tour: Keri Lake’s Ricochet

Title: Ricochet 
Author: Keri Lake
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: July 9, 2015
The only sure way to destroy a man is to take what he cannot live without.
Three years ago, I had everything.
A beautiful wife.
 
A son.
 
A reason for living.
 
Until a ruthless task force, assembled under Mayor Michael Culling, with a brutal strategy to make the streets of Detroit ‘safe’, ripped away everything I loved in a deadly hunt called The Culling.
 
They tried to kill me, too. I wish they had. Now I’m cursed by the memories of that night, and the words I whispered to my dying wife.
A promise—to avenge the wrong and set it right.
 
I’m no longer Nick Ryder. I’m a masked vigilante. Faceless. Loveless. Fearless. A man with nothing left to lose—one who’s seen the dark and violent truth behind the city’s flawless veneer.
Michael Culling doesn’t know who I am. Or what I want. All he knows is that I’ve kidnapped his beautiful wife.
An eye for an eye—isn’t that how the saying goes? And Aubree Culling is the perfect pawn to destroy him.
If she doesn’t destroy me first.

 Read an excerpt:

With my right hand, I pinned her flailing fist, then released her throat and seized the other. She stilled, flat against the wall, with my body pressed into hers.

“You had everything to do with it.” I pushed harder, my muscles steeled. “He didn’t just wrong me, he annihilated me. And there you were, stroking his cock, smiling beside him all the while.”

“All you saw was a smile, then. You should’ve looked deeper. So what? I’m your revenge? Your ticket to hurting him?” She sneered. “Guess what? He doesn’t give a shit about me. He never did. So, go ahead, Nick. Kill me.” She lifted her head away from the wall, only inches from my face. “Snap my fucking throat, if that’s what you plan to do. You’d be doing him and me a favor.”

Her body pulsed with tension, the tremble beating against me, through me, inside of me. Anger. Hate.

So much hate.

With one quick twist of my hands, I could’ve snapped her neck, been done with the whole plan and exited my miserable fucking existence on the wings of a bullet to my skull.

Instead, I slammed my lips against hers. Loving the struggle of her body trying to push me away. Hating the fact that her lips tasted like sweet salvation, beckoning me to whatever web of deception she’d been weaving since I’d taken her. Her delicious smell pervaded my senses—water on the flames burning inside of me, steaming up my mind.

Three years.

The last time I’d devoured a woman’s lips was three years ago, and that had been out of love. Kissing Aubree was something else entirely. Not gentle or tender. I kissed her violently, with all the fury locked inside of me, our frantic breaths clashing with one another.

Her moan vibrated inside my skull, as her hands clenched to fists, trying to break free from my grasp.

She opened her mouth wider, dragged my lip between her teeth, and bit me.

Aggression surged through my body and rattled the cage of something dark inside of me.

I wanted more. More pain. More rage. I wanted to tear into her while cursing her name. Purge myself of the hate until it was spent.

I broke the kiss, breaths heaving, as I glared down at her. “What do you know about Brightmoor?” I rasped.

“I don’t know anything about Brightmoor,” she gritted out.

Lies. “Yeah? Then, why did you have the fucking blueprints tucked in your purse? Devil’s Night plans safe and sound, beside your goddamn lipstick and compact.”

Her chest rose and fell as I kept her captive against the wall, her stare deadpan. “I didn’t—”

“Don’t lie to me.” I pressed harder, lips to her ear. “I fucking hate liars,” I whispered, inciting a shudder in her that brought a smile to my face. “Why did you have the chip?”

“I stole it.”

“You stole it.” I wanted to laugh at the stupidity of such a thought, but my voice lacked any ounce of humor or inflection. “I don’t think you did, Pistol Lips. I think he gave it to you. His little pet.”

“I fucking hate you.” Venom laced her words as she stared back at me, those golden eyes blazing with vehemence.

I licked my lips and glanced down at her pert breasts, and smiled. Squeezing her captured wrists with one hand, I reached up under her dress, only grazing the patch of lace that kept my finger from being inside of her, knowing everything she was too stubborn to admit.

Her lids turned heavy, as drunken eyes riveted on my lips.

“Tell me how much you hate me.”

“Don’t,” she warned, and I caught the scrape of her tongue across her teeth.

Grabbing a handful of hair, I tugged her head back until her neck stretched taut, and like a creature of night, I wanted to bite down into that supple flesh and rip her throat out. Dragging my tongue along her shoulder, I made my way to the base of her neck and bit her collarbone. She let out a gasp and I released her wrists. Lust blazed through my veins, when her fingers tangled in my hair and her leg curled around my hip, drawing me against her.

“You know what, Aubree? I fucking hate you, too, but goddamn … you taste so good.”

Hell was having her skin against mine and craving her so badly I wanted to crawl out of my own body.
