A pirate. A lady. He decides she belongs to him.

Priscilla is bored with her life. She yearns for adventure and excitement. She pleads and begs her father to allow her to go on his next trip to the intriguing pirate infested islands. When she’s told no, she sneaks on the ship anyway.

Nathaniel is the quartermaster on the ship he currently sails on. His quest for his own ship is almost complete. When he visits a harbor town, he discovers the greatest treasure he could imagine and like any other trinket, he takes her with him.

Her dreams and her realities aren’t coinciding. Priscilla learns the hardships and threats on the open sea and of living on an unrefined island. But Nathaniel and his amber eyes burn her in every conceivable, delicious way.

Nathaniel is committed to silencing his harrowing past. When an opportunity for revenge presents itself will he pursue it? Can Nathaniel keep Priscilla safe?

On Nysa, women exist solely as recreation for men.

Calliope dreams of escaping Nysa, traveling to Earth and living free. Her plans are thwarted when she ends up placed with a dedicated soldier as his plaything. Regardless of her developing feelings for Amerrande, she knows she must not let anything get in the way of her plans to escape, and after a terrifying attempt and hazardous journey, she reaches Earth – only to discover freedom is not long lasting, as Amerrande is sent to find and execute her.

Phaedra has one purpose: service assignment soldiers for one month in whatever capacity they desire. Her doctor sedates and forces her to leave for the desecrated and disease-ridden Earth, followed by transport to Neoma, the frozen death planet. His plan was to save her from a life of servitude and offer her a freedom she wouldn’t have had. But all isn’t as it seems. And when Phaedra learns to see and trust with her heart and not her eyes, she will risk not only her life, but the life of the man she wants to share it with.

This is a two book collection consisting of Charm Him, Disarm Him and Impress Her, Possess Her. Both books read as standalones and have a HEA.

Publisher’s Note: These steamy sci-fi, apocalyptic romances contain elements of action and adventure, and power exchange.

Traveling to the island of Roatan, Honduras, for her college best friend’s wedding, it never crossed Sophia’s mind that her college boyfriend, Trevor, could be in attendance. She hadn’t heard anything from or about him since graduation when he left to bounce around to different locations and pursue his immature dreams. She assumed no one else had either. Wrong. He has quite a reputation in West End, Roatan.

Trevor was told of and agreed to the unlikelihood of Sophia traveling to the simple island destination. He didn’t give it a second thought. Until he saw her sitting on a barstool at the tiki bar. Now he can’t stop thinking about her. Fantasizing about her. She still has flowing, auburn hair and a fiery attitude to match.

Both recognize the fire still burning between them. But neither is inclined to relight the match.

They wanted different things. They took separate paths and found success. Did either find the happiness they had together? Will either act on the passion between them? If they do, it will force them into the exact dilemma they suffered a decade ago.

Can and will Trevor let her return to the lucrative lifestyle she always wanted and obtained? A decade without her couldn’t silence his doubts about losing her the first time.

Will Sophia leave her ‘West End Wonder’ living the satisfying life he chose for himself? She’s dated the high-powered business moguls she dreamed of. But she’s never appreciated and enjoyed them as much as she does Trevor and experiencing his laid-back island lifestyle.

When secrets come to light…

Emma is returning to the scene of her indiscretion, unsure of the welcome she will receive. But after five years, it’s time to ask for her former fiancé’s forgiveness and to introduce her young son to his rightful father.

Annabelle is fleeing after being betrayed and humiliated by her beau and her best friend. Going west to stay with her cousin and her family, she hopes to make a new start. But when her curiosity gets the best of her, she meets Clyde, who promptly decides she needs to be taken in hand.

Claude and Clyde are twin brothers who work on the Big G Ranch, but they are keeping a secret about the past. When it is discovered, will they lose their positions and the women who have stolen their hearts?

This is book two in the Big G Ranch series and can be enjoyed independently.

Together they were combustible, but every fire can burn out of control.

Holly’s life wasn’t really working out the way she expected. She’d graduated high school and gone off to college only to be forced home. She worked a depressing job in the local diner, giving her paychecks to her mother, and dreaming of the day she could return to school.

Ash entered the diner she worked at one cold, rainy night and the spark between them flared immediately. He made her an offer she couldn’t refuse. She was offered a contract providing her with a substantial amount of money —her family desperately needed—if she agreed to his terms for one week. Seemed simple enough.

Little did she know what he actually bought and how much she would relinquish.

Publisher’s Note: This dark, contemporary romance is intended for adults only and contains elements of mystery, suspense, possible triggers for some readers, sensual scenes and power exchange. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase.

About the Author:

An image posted by the author.

I’m Sheri and I write as Sheri Lynn and Sheridan Knight. I grew up an Army brat, so my childhood involved moving every three years. However, truly a southern gal, I currently split my time in Alabama and Florida with my husband, one Chihuahua, two Golden Retrievers, and a turtle. I have two sons, who live on their own, a daughter in college, and a stepson and stepdaughter.

Romance novels have always been my first reading choice. I’m a hopeless romantic, and that trait materializes in every aspect of my life. “Wearing your heart on your sleeve” has been a common phrase repeatedly heard throughout my life. Writing romance and happily ever-afters come naturally.

Whether a result of my childhood, or not, I love to travel. Warm weather and beautiful beaches are always my choice destination.

Interview with Sheri Lynn:

Tell us about the books you’ve published so far. Can you tell us about some of your upcoming novels?

I write romance across several genres.  Vampire.  Western.  Contemporary.  Sci-Fi/Post-Apocalyptic.  Historical Suspense.  Historical Fantasy.  Whenever I get inspired, I go with it.  I enjoy writing characters who aren’t necessarily looking for love, but it finds them.  Some of them reject it and fight against it… but I do love a happy ending.

This year is the first year since I began publishing in 2015 that I intentionally did not sign onto any new projects, and I have no deadlines to meet (except my own). I want to finish the next books in several series I started, and I am currently working on a contemporary story which will release in June of this year.

What was the moment you knew you wanted to be an author? 

I’ve always loved reading and writing.  I’ve always had a creative imagination. I was the girl who cried when the day came to finally pack up her Barbie dolls because I was too old to continue crafting lives for them. 

I sat down at my laptop after my second son was born and wrote my first novel.  I shopped it around a little bit, but I had two young sons, a full-time job, and gave birth to a daughter a few years later. It would be over twenty years before I published anything where others could read it.  But during those years, I stayed active in a writers’ group and kept writing and eventually decided to submit another story which did get published in 2015.

What are some things you do to overcome doubts about your writing?

Remember or reread the positive reviews. And yes, there are negatives ones too. But we are all different and what one person hates… another can love. Remind myself why I write. I write because I love it. Even if I never become a ‘huge success’, I am successful because I stuck with it and people have read my words and enjoyed them.

I also walk away from it periodically. Writing can be a lonely endeavor. It can be harsh. And I feel beaten down on occasion. So, I force myself to step back for a week or two or even a month. And, by the time I sit back down at my laptop I’m anxious to get back at it.

Have any actual life experiences reflected in your writing? 

I think all my characters have parts of me in them. They say we write what we know. I tend to write about small towns because I lived in them most of my life and I love the laidback lifestyle.

In my book, West End Wonder, there is a wedding on the island of Roatan, Honduras. My husband and I spent many years frequenting the island. I changed the names of the resort, bars, and restaurants, but they are based on my experiences. The entire scooter accident scene and my description of the hospital are also factual (well, it was me driving with my mom on the back).

Who was your easiest character to write about and why? What was your hardest and why?

Hmm. I love them all, but there are occasions that getting inside their mindsets, understanding them, and delivering it through my words proves difficult.

I think the easiest characters I have written would be the females I wrote for a co-authored series with Isabella Kole. They are Western romances, the Big G Ranch series. All their stories came easy to me, and it was so much fun bringing them to life.

The hardest character might be Echo from a sci-fi series I started with one novella in an anthology which is no longer available and continued the story in a separate anthology, Chosen By An Alien which will be no longer available in February. I plan on combining them this year and re-releasing with new material and the next story.
