Sexy Time Travel Romance The Sorcerer King and the Fire Queen Just Pubbed at RAB



Riverdale, NY – April 4, 2014 – Riverdale Avenue Books just published the sexy time travel paranormal romance The Sorcerer King and the Fire Queen by Ana Lee Kennedy which is now available on Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, RiverdaleAveBooks.com, and other online retailers.

In this novel, Ruby Nutter thinks she has a normal, boring life — well, except for her fiery powers that always seem to create chaos and hysteria wherever she goes, if she lets anyone know about them.

She can’t even keep a boyfriend because she scares them away. And sex? What sex?

Seeking answers, she decides to go on a road trip with her best friend, who just happens to be the spitting image of Marilyn Monroe, to finally silence the voices and stop the images in her head.

Thrown into a quest to solve her crazy dreams and visions, Ruby finds herself thrust into a paranormal war that goes back millennia. With it comes a reawakened love that forces her to remember her beloved Sorcerer king, a love that must conquer all things to keep the world safe.

Best-selling erotic romance author Trinity Blacio said of this novel, "I read this story in one sitting and couldn't put it down. It's one of my favorite books and will read it again, again and again..."

About Ana Lee Kennedy

After many actual dreams of traveling the world, Ana Lee hopes to do so soon with her husband and young son, and their first stop will be England. When she’s not writing, she can be found in her flower gardens or at one of the local lakes playing with her son and their creepily intelligent Labrador retriever. She resides in the U.S. with her family, Sir Creepy Dog, two almost-as-smart felines, and a pair of pet ducks.

Third Cat Shifter Erotic Romance in Masters of the Cats Series Just Pubbed




Caging the Bengal Tiger” by Best-Selling Author Trinity Blacio Just Published by Riverdale Avenue Books

Caging the Bengal Tiger is now available on Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, RiverdaleAveBooks.com, and other online retailers.

In this book, Bengal tiger shifter Lacey must deal with the life changes that have happened in her female clan as they are wooed by an alien race of alpha shifters and pursued by an even deadlier race of shifter demons.

“Trinity Blacio’s Masters of the Cats series just gets hotter and hotter, and there’s nothing as hot when these female cat shifters go into heat.” said Lori Perkins, Riverdale Avenue Books Publisher. “This is such an amazing shifter series. I’ve never read anything like it.”

Caging the Bengal Tiger starts three months after all the cat-shifters have had their lives changed by meeting a new race of compatible, but alien, shifters. Lacey hasn’t decided whether or not it was for the good. Could her life actually change for the better? Was it possible that the three males who kept following her around were truly hers? Could she really trust them? Was this true love? Or were they trying to cage the tiger seeking revenge?

Isaac Featherstone, Dan Edwards and Anthony Jefferson will fight anyone who harms their woman, including family. Isaac knows they need to collar their Lady Cat, but with betrayal still fresh on all their minds, is she going to trust them with her love? Were they ready to take up the mantle of leadership?

Surrounded by enemies all around them, Isaac, Dan, and Anthony try to protect Lacey the only way they know, showing her that they were not going anywhere. They were there to stay, and her men would not let her down like so many others had. They would prove their love by showing her that she could trust them no matter what is thrown their way.

The first chapter of the next installment in this series, Betsy’s Story: New Ties and New Loves, Book Four is included as a bonus at the end the book.
