REIGN: A ROMANCE ANTHOLOGY

Kat T Masen | Emma James | Addison Jane
JA Low | Leesa Bow | Kally Ash | Corinne Mazille
They say that power changes a person. Love changes them more.
Long may they reign… You find them in the boardroom. The throne room. The bedroom. They burn brighter than the rest. They wield power as easily as they breathe. They stop at nothing to get what they want.
Royalty, CEOs, mafia kings, demons, and more. When love conquers, will they fall to their knees for the person they can’t live without? Reign is a collection of thirteen brand new romance novellas featuring men and women who rule their empires but not their hearts.
This had some really enjoyable novellas in by some great authors, I haven’t managed to read them all yet, but I definitely plan to.
Though I enjoyed all the ones I have read so far, my favourite was Three’s a Crown by JA Low. I enjoy MMF romances and this one hit all the right buttons. A prince and his bodyguard and a marriage of duty that threatens to pull them apart. In comes a princess who might be all they are both looking for and more. I loved these three characters and I loved that the princess wasn’t afraid to ask for what she wanted. A hot and sexy read.
Stardust by Lisa Bow was a really enjoyable and sweet but sexy football novella that included a motorcycle gang full of really bad guys and a footballer with a hero complex for the one woman he shouldn’t want.
Illusive – The Exiled Eight MC by Addison Jane was about a young single mother, Zoey, who is on the run from some well connected bad guys. Finding a job as an interior designer is her dream, and she lands her dream job, it just happens to be owned by an outlaw motorcycle club who take on the job of protecting her and her daughter. Zoey falls for the leader, one seriously alpha male who in turn falls for her. Plenty of action.
Little Bird by Kally Ash was not my favourite, but still an enjoyable read. A young woman who needs to pay off her brothers debts to a sex club owner who has a few less than legal side businesses. I liked that she stood her ground about what she was willing to do to pay off that debt. And I liked how confused she made our alpha male.
Surrendered Hearts by Nina Levine, rich mafia families and a serious alpha male, a marriage of convenience, or was it something more. If only these two had just opened up and told each other what was going on and how they felt. I liked that our female mc was damned stubborn and made her fiance lose his mind a little more with each encounter.
I am looking forward to delving back into this anthology full of men and women who rule.
Meet Penny Dee:
Hi I’m Penny Dee! I’ve written stories for as long as I can remember. I wrote my first book when I was five. It was called The Goodies and it was about a drive to the shops to get milk. It was amazing. It was also brilliantly illustrated in orange felt tip pen because I was all about the awesomeness when I was five years old.
Skip forward a few decades… and I write romance, erotic romance and romantic suspense. And MC romance. And rockstar romance. And contemporary romance. Hell, if they’re romancing then I’m writing it. I feel really fortunate because I get to meet interesting characters every single day—fictional characters who shock the hell out of me! I never know where their story is going until they lead me there. They’re in charge. They can be bossy and demanding. Sometimes a little impatient and frustrating. And let me tell you, they don’t understand the concept of quiet time.
No. I am not crazy.
When you write fiction, you share your grey matter with a lot of characters. Characters who show up unannounced and demand to be put to paper.
Fictional characters aside, I also like to hear from real humans so don’t be shy, drop me a line and say hi.
I promise you. I am not crazy.

Meet Bec McMaster:
My name is Bec McMaster and I live in a small country town in Australia with my boyfriend, a noisy cockatiel, and a beautiful dog named Kobe. I grew up either with my nose in a book or writing, and never understood why other people didn’t get to watch ‘all the movies in their heads’. Following a lifelong love affair with fantasy, I discovered romance at the age of sixteen and haven’t looked back.
When I’m not writing I like to read, obsess over food blogs and my attempts at recreating their masterpieces, go hiking with my boyfriend, pore over travel brochures, and go to the gym. I’m addicted to travel, and love to set my books in foreign places. It’s the next best thing to travelling there. One day I vow to see the entire world, whether it’s by plane, paper, or imagination.
These days I can be found sitting at my computer with a hot mug of tea, possibly some chocolate (okay, definitely some chocolate) creating the dark and dangerous worlds of the London Steampunk, Dark Arts or Burned Lands series’ where even the darkest hero can find love. I’m a member of RWA (USA and Australia), and am represented by Jessica Faust of BookEnds; LLC.
I’m so grateful to get this chance to pursue my dream, so thank you to everyone who reads my books. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed writing them!

Meet Kat T Masen:
I’m obsessed with the ’80s — hands down THE best years of my life. Granted, I was in the prime of my life, not reaching the double digits yet. Life was nothing but great music, neon-colored tights, and roller-skates that made an appearance at the roller arena each week.
Then I grew up…
Ahh, the ’90s. I’m admitting right here that I’m a 90210 fanatic. The skates were hung up, and dating boys became the norm.
Also, then l began to adult…
Marriage, four boys, and what’s that…I kind of became an author. I combined my love of reading, ’80s bands, and the swoony men on 90210 to bring you sexy.humorous.smut.
But, then I was like, can I do more?
I’m also the founder of Books Ever After Book Boxes & Books by the Bridge Author Events.
So if you don’t find me writing, planning events or packing book boxes, you’ll find me with a plate of nachos binge watching Gilmore Girls for the millionth time. Team Logan all the way.
Oh…and parenting but thats easy, right?

Meet Corinne Mazille:
My name is Corinne Mazille, and I love to write romance in all different tropes. I started writing a lot later in life, but once an idea formed in my head after reading hundreds of books, I couldn’t stop. Coming up with characters and worlds is so much fun, and I can’t wait until I can do this fulltime.
I never really thought of myself as being artistic, but years ago, I did start a makeup course because I would have loved to work on movie sets, but real life got in the way and a job opportunity arose that I couldn’t turn down. But I still have a massive love of makeup and can very easily spend hours watching make up tutorials on youtube.
And I am blessed with a daughter who I have trained well. She loves to play with makeup, although I do find pieces missing from time to time.
We are also huge Disney fans in this house, and we are currently planning our next trip, this time hoping to get to Disney World.
