Roman's Return_Barns&Noble_1333x2000.jpg





Jax Roman is the image of courage, nobility, and strength. A clever mind and agile body propelled Roman to the head of his SEAL class. Handsome and disarming, Jax is in charge of his world, vertical and horizontal.

Now, at the pinnacle of his game, he leads his own team until…the Lobos Cartel, the worst Jax has ever fought, sets out to eliminate him. 

Lovely and compassionate, Dr. Kameo Alana meets Jax in his most desperate hour. Her family has borne the cartel’s punishment.


Without Kameo, Jax would not be free to topple the depraved cartel. 

Kameo is more than a balm for his pain.


Together they sizzle white-hot.


Jax’s mission for a ‘happily ever after’ with Kameo is an exercise in ‘taking no prisoners’, SEAL style.

A complicated situation...


Kirk Roman knows he is the reason his relationship with Jordan Perry has never gotten to first base. His insecurity has been an ongoing barrier between them — until the day a sultry woman with her eye on him makes him re-evaluate his feelings for Jordan.


Jordan Perry is a fighter — and she is a survivor. She thought being widowed at thirty-seven was the worst that could happen until her diagnosis seven years ago. Clean, cleared, but scarred from her battle with breast cancer, Jordan silently dreams of the one man who has kept her going — Kirk Roman.


Kirk's inner battle with his desire to date Jordan isn't only about his insecurities. Jordan is a friend and an employee — two things he doesn't want to jeopardize. What he doesn't expect is the arrival of his estranged adult son and his wife.


The complications escalate when the sultry woman after him has a murderous past. Will all this kill his chance of finally telling Jordan how he really feels about her?


Will Roman's old rules work in this new situation?


A young cowboy with his boots in the Texas dirt and his heart set on flying fighter jets, until love makes a course correction on a flight to meet his unknown father.



An artist gifted beyond her years stands up for herself and wins a place at a prestigious art institute. A stalker shadows her path and drives her back to the last place she was happy.


Their Fate

Each had dreams tailoring their perfect futures. Will their long-held dreams nurture their love? Or, will the tolls of achieving their ambitions drive them apart?

Across continents, over 500 years.

Blood Rising - Amber Anthony.jpg
Blood Emerald - Amber Anthony.jpg

Drop-dead gorgeous alive, Matt Brenner has never lacked for feminine attention. Undead, he’s even more potent. Immortality would be stellar if only he accepted his life as a vampire.  Matt and fellow vamp Richard Hiatt created a BDSM empire catering to Vampire/Doms and willing donor/subs who trade sexual ecstasy for blood. The clubs have made Matt’s existence manageable, if uninspired.

Inspiration comes in the form of Catherine Temple.

Matt’s made it a rule not to get emotionally involved with human women, and he sticks to it. Cat is the woman who can entice him to break all the rules. When Matt is introduced to a controversial drug that allows him a human lifetime with Cat, it’s too exquisite to resist.

Powerful elements of the vampire nation are against it, and though Matt tries to protect Cat, love must be stronger than death

Appetite for Blood

How does one start a BDSM empire?…

Rick Hiatt stole my heart the first time I read Blood Emerald. For being over four hundred years old, this man seriously knows how to make me blush. Being able to dive into his past and understand why he’s this devious hunk o’ man was intoxicating!

I’m eternally thrilled that Amber Anthony wrote a prequel to the Blood Trilogy. (Eternally, get it? Hee hee.) I’m not sure if I’d call this a “prequel,” though.  For me, it was like a saucy epilogue of sorts. I guess it doesn’t matter what you call it. I binge read everything from Amber Anthony regardless of the recommended order. I’ll be obsessed either way.

Blood Dragon


Okay, people. It took me a long time to open this book. Why?


You can call me shallow, but do I care? Of course not.


What starts as an accidental friendship, quickly turns into this shifter smut fest. (I bet you’re looking at the book cover again…good for you.) ...

What they should have done is left their love-fest behind before everything got complicated. And it does get complicated. Two different lives, two different paths. Now, they’re in this addictive limbo of mystery, lies, and confusion.

This book has so much life. Amber Anthony knows how to bring characters’ inner demons to the forefront and challenge their every move. That is what makes a good author. From Adam being the Master Dom of kink and Willow on her massive journey of self-discovery, Blood Dragon is shifter crème de la crème.

As our characters dance in their own conflicts, inevitably, they find their way to each other. And every reason they shouldn’t have been together soon becomes the only lifeline they have.

Only Amber Anthony, I tell ya.

Blood Emerald


Rick Hiatt is a hero to die for in this stunning standalone. Literally.


We were first introduced to this devilishly handsome vampire in the first book of the Blood series. Now, Rick is the leading man in this second installment and readers are going to melt as his story unfolds.


The context is immaculate and the characters are wonderfully flawed. Although the heroine is fascinating and complex, Rick and his dominating ways are the tugboat dragging readers through a flood of emotion.


Amber Anthony does no wrong when it comes to sculpting a man who is brought to his knees by a savvy woman.
