UNTAMEABLE HEAT by Dariel Raye Release is July 11



“Untameable Heat: Kaden’s Reprieve”

Available July 11th!

Tanya has been running for her life for two years, but when Ms. Lillian, owner of the exclusive “Heaven’s Touch” match making service, graciously gives her a week’s stay at her private bed and breakfast in St. Augustine, FL, she seizes the opportunity to escape to a possible hideaway.

Kaden is of a rare and precious race prized for extraordinary abilities. He is also half-demon, remanded to Kushiel’s custody centuries ago. Allowed leave from Hell twice a year, three days each time – Beltane, and Samhain, his life thus far has been filled with slavery, torture, and despair, and he is nearly convinced that his soul is beyond redemption. Still, he longs for freedom. Can Tanya redeem him? Can Kaden dare hope for a reprieve?

“Dark Sentinels – Book One: Sable”

Sable, a sentinel wolf shifter, is captured and locked in his wolf form until Akila, a veterinarian, tries to tame him and unleashes a 6'5" baby blue-eyed surprise.

Dr. Akila Marshall is a veterinarian with a calling – save as many stray animals as possible. The only child of wealthy, yet distant parents, she’s convinced that love is not for her. Until…

Sable’s search for his twin sister leads him to Akila. Born into a rare species of wolf shifters whose main purpose is protecting others, he has always been forced to fend for himself, but Akila’s loving, protective nature draws him – and not a moment too soon. Together, they must learn to trust each other enough to overcome a new, deadly enemy.

“Dark Sentinels Book Two: Torin”

When greedy land developers set their sights on Dark Sentinel land, Torin turns to attorney Stephanie Bates for help, but she’ll need his protection to stay alive long enough to save his land.

Real estate lawyer, Stephanie Bates, has risen to the top of her field through meticulous sacrifice and goal setting. She has no time for distractions – and that includes pets, messy relationships, and loose ends.

Torin DuMont is a forensic scientist who chose the profession to avoid dealing with people as much as possible. Raised by a stepfather who hated him, he’s been forced to live a life of solitude, fueled by anger and distrust. When wolves and shifters start turning up dead, Torin must battle an enemy bent on destroying those he was born to protect. His greatest challenge, however, is Attorney Bates and the surprising effect she has on his heart.

The Cowboy Rode a Harley Cover Reveal and GIVEAWAY!

Rowdy nights and hardworking days fill Stephen’s life. Chained to a headboard, he swore waking up in an unfamiliar room that drinking and womanizing had to stop. No time to waste. Matt, his brother will have his hide if he’s late to oversee his work crew back on the ranch and he needs to find the key to set himself free. The thing is Stephen doesn’t remember the tempting redhead sound asleep on the other side of the bed.

Gillian arrived home during one of Haden’s (her brother) wild parties and escaped into her darkened bedroom where her girlfriend had fallen asleep. After spending hours at her dance studio getting costumes ready for the spring recital, Gillian was too tired to ask Lorie any questions. Now in the morning she finds her friend wasn’t alone last night. Worse, the man on the other side of her bed is Stephen McLemore known for his wicked reputation in several Texas counties.

Stephen comes face-to-face with Gillian and the sparks do fly in one unguarded kiss. Things heat up fast for them when at every turn, they’re tripping over each other in town.

When Hollywood producers select Gillian for their dance reality television show, Stephen volunteers to be her partner. In short order, these two realize there’s more to their sleepy little town than they’d ever imagined possible.

Amidst chaos, Gillian must deal with her brother’s addictions, her grandparents' strange living arrangements, and the tugging on her heartstrings by a man with wild skills who pushes her boundaries in and out of the bedroom. Now she must decide if fame is what she’s dreamed of when a Harley riding rancher has all the right moves.

Warning: Dance teacher hottie and gorgeous Harley riding man connect, creating nuclear explosive romance. Handcuffs, spanking, dancing, and molten sex fill this Western love story.

Erotic shapeshifter romance: COLLARED FOR A NIGHT

In just one bite, he demonstrated his command over her.

    “Did you heed my directions?” he asked in a voice that made her go wet.
    “I don’t remember. What did you say?” She pretended innocence and opened her eyes wide to him.
     Shawn's gaze flashed a golden threat at her defiance. He spoke softly, his tone all the more dangerous. “Shall we also include discipline in your education?” He slammed his mouth down upon her and nipped her lip to remind her who dominated.
    He released her and she couldn't help pushing him a bit further. “You make misbehaving a temptation.”
     "Have no fear. Part of your training will allow me to completely discipline you, if ever I see fit.” His half-lidded gaze didn’t hide the fact he meant business.
Diana Hambre's body is blazing. For days this leopardess shifter has spun through a body-searing heat cycle. Alone. Her senses reel when Shawn Barclay, her boss, walks into her reserved room at the Downtown Den, a stud club for shifters. He gives Diana a choice: spend the evening with him, give into his every desire, and she'll find out what it means to quench her heat-crazed thirst—or try her luck with a stranger, one of the club bangers.

Shawn hates when his back is against the wall. One sip of Diana’s sex-laced scent is enough to force his alpha hand. Now, it's Diana's back he wants up against a wall or any other surface for that matter.

As the moon rises toward midnight, Shawn and Diana come to understand the difference between joining and mating. For a night, neither of them resist instinct, blindly giving into their leopard natures even though their human forms know they must reconsider their options come morning.

WARNING: Explicit scenes hot enough to peel paint.
