The Black Rose series


A note from the author - Before you even consider reading this series, please be ready to delve into a dark and taboo world of demons and angels who can and will do as they please. This series will immerse you in a world filled with dark places and even darker beings. They are not human, and do not act the way you and I act, or think the way you and I think. Please be ready for some controversial themes and for me to push the boundaries!

***PLEASE NOTE***
Please be aware that these novels depict explicit sexual relationships between consenting adults, including romantic suspense, and forced consent. There are also instances in which physical abuse and domestic violence occur, which I understand can be a trigger for some reader. These books are not be suitable for those under the age of 18.
