Elysium by J J Harper is now LIVE
About JJ Harper
I'm a slighty crazy book fiend with an addiction to Kindle and the one-click button!
A very late starter to writing although reading is and always has been a passion of mine.
Writing a book never crossed my mind until being forced to give up work because of a long term illness. I started
spending so much time reading that ideas started to grow in my mind for a story of my own, Rising Up developed.
I live quietly in the beautiful South Lincolnshire countryside with my gorgeous husband, who is my biggest fan and
provides me with masses of support, and my dog a deeply dippy Dogue de Bordeaux who keeps me amused with

My Turn an erotic romance
If I thought leaving the US the first time was hard, it was nothing compared to this.
Maddie leaves her best friend again and goes back to the UK. Struggling with her feelings for her ex Lake and a broken heart she attempts to turn her life around again.
Months later after a photography course and a final exhibition she manages exactly that.
Nathan - “I would like the chance to know you better and I would like to see if I can stop the sadness inside you. I am enchanted by you Maddie Stevens.”
Bored with his life and hassled by and ex-girlfriend Nathan is drawn to Maddie and a spark between them encourages him to pursue her.
He catches my hand and slips his card into my hand. “Call me, Ms. Stevens. I’d love to see you and more of your work.” I don’t miss the shiver that goes up my arm as the spark from his touch reaches me.
Back in the States Lake battles with the loss of Maddie when he realizes that he does love her but has no idea how to get her back.
But fate steps into both of their lives when a young woman, Tallie enters Lake’s life and the whole world stops for him and he is captivated by her.
“Lake, trust me you’ve just found your girl. You looked at her the way I look at Ginny, you can’t get away from it dude, it’s fate. C’mon I’ll buy you a beer.”
I’m just standing there staring at him, “Fuck off Mason, you know I want Maddie back.”
“All I know is that from where I was standing you fell hook, line and sinker for that girl. So fight it all you want but that girl is your future.”
But I love Maddie. Don’t I?
As Maddie and Lake come to terms with the idea of not being together their lives become full of new love and potential. So when the wedding invitation arrives Maddie is forced to make a decision.
Disaster hits when Maddie’s dark past catches up with her and the consequences nearly break both her and Nathan. Her mind is no longer confused she knows who her future lies with.
Will Lake and Maddie be able to be friends together, or do their past feelings for each other ruin their chances? Will Nathan and Tallie cope with the past history of the ex-lovers? Will Maddie ever get her turn?
My Turn is a follow on story and although it can be read as a standalone Book one ‘Rising Up’ introduces Maddie and Lake and will enhance this second story.
This contemporary romance novel contains strong language, sex and scenes of violence. Therefore is recommended for readers aged 18 and over.

Because loves deserves a second chance.
After being cast out by his family Nico leaves his home town and his one true love Ryan. A meeting of a fellow outcast leads him down a dark and ultimately dangerous road. Discarded and left for dead Nico is found by a man who helps him turn his life around, but even with success and fame Nico is lost without his love by his side.
The chance sighting of a Ten Year School Reunion on a social media site gives him the excuse to return home. He needs to apologize to the man he still loves, hoping he will accept it. Deep down he wants him back but imagines him married to a man who deserves him, not a coward that ran.
‘The ache for Ryan has been so strong and so real it has taken every ounce of strength I have to keep away, to let him lead his life without me. With me being a deadbeat, a loser and no good for anyone. Or so I’ve been told.’
Ryan retires from the army after the death of his mother, settling again in his home town and his new life as a cop. Still single, his heart has always belonged to the one man he wasn’t able to keep. As the reunion gets closer Ryan searches for his man’s name as the list of attendees grows…
It’s there…Nico Angeles. He’s coming, he’s coming home!
Will they be able to forget the past or has the last ten years apart been too long?
Blurb for Reunited
The reunion between Ryan and Nico was sweet as sugar and as hot as hell, but after ten years apart can they find true happiness?
When the one man Nico had wished to never see again suddenly appears, is it purely the coincidence it appears to be, or is there a reason he showed up at the exact moment Nico and Ryan found each other again?
I watch the man I love walk back through the doors of the restroom his ass is tight and firm and feels so damn good. How have I lived without Ryan for this long? He is such a good man, a strong assertive and confident man.
Ryan and Nico both discover living with each other is not easy. They know the love they share is real but they're not the same men they once were. The passion between the two men continues to rocket sky high but so does the tension, causing tempers to rise between them.
“I love you Nico, but I hate your past. Or more that I hate how your past has decided to control us.”
When secrets emerge and the past threatens the two men, can they pull together or will it too much for Ryan to cope with?
By the time the puzzle has been solved it may just be too late for one or even both of them.

Moon Sworn (Book 1 in the Bound Series)
J F Holland
At 4-years old Maya Rawlings witnessed her own father horrifically murder her mother. Brought up by an older aunt she knows nothing of her family history.
She wants a family of her own to make up for all that she's lost, but it's difficult to achieve when she's not attracted to anyone. That is until the night of her 21st birthday when a strange mark appears on the palm of her hand. The mark was followed by re-currant nightmares of fleeing for her life, and the voice of a man offering her things she's always dreamed of. Is he real or is she finally losing her mind?
Jaden Matthews is a loner who never settles in one place. He doesn't do forever, not after the murder of his parents and younger brother. That is until fate decides to step in and a mark appears on his hand, it seems he now has a mate.
After waiting 21-years for her to mature, the clock is now ticking. First he needs to find her and his search leads him back to a place he'd vowed never to return. He's not the only one there hunting her though.
Can he use his skills to not only get rid of the threat to her life, but also persuade her to agree to the binding? Or will he be destined to walk a limited lifespan alone, as the animal he becomes?

I still live in the small town in Manchester, UK, where I was born at home on January 10th 1968. I was raised and attended school here. Now a wife and mother, I live with my husband and 6 children, and a small menagerie of animals.
I've always loved the underdog, the fighter. But let's face it, we all want to believe in a happily ever after. As a huge fan of books (book nerd is the endearing term, my children use). I have an immense romance collection which also includes paranormal romance. If I'm not writing, I've got my head stuck in a good book.
You can't beat reading, watching the plot and characters come to life in your imagination. It's so much better than television. When I was younger, I tended to re-write books and fairy-tales where I wasn't completely happy with the ending. It confused the hell out of my children once they learned to read. None of the books matched the stories I'd read them growing up.
I had a varied career including Admin, Customer Service, and Teaching unemployed adults IT and customer service skills. Well, until I became ill a few years ago. I'm now at home full time, classed as disabled (neuro fog can make life, and writing fun sometimes). So instead of feeling sorry for myself I decided to do something I'd always wanted to do and loved with my life. I began to write my own stories (as I'd done as a child) and as well as keeping my mind active it's fun too. I'm now ready to share them and happy to receive feedback about my books (stories).

REVIEW BY MAZZY BOSS LADY
4 OBSESSED STARS
This is the first book that I have read by Bella, I was intrigued from the title and the blurb.
Summer has left a life behind that was full of abuse, and is hiding away from an ex that treated her disgustingly.
Finding work at Collar and Cuffs, a restaurant that has more than you would ever imagine. She finds herself a home within this place and love as well.
This read is a fast paced read, and in some places it will have you hooked where you are wanting to know the outcome.
A read full of dominant men, where it makes you want one of your own.
Overall it was a very intriguing, eye opening read.

4 OBSESSED STARS
Summer is trying move on from her life of her abusive ex, finding a job at Coller and Cuffs was one of the best things for her, working at the restaurant feels like home, but the restaurant isn't your typical restaurant. This book was a great read with a hot sexy alpha Dom, Nathan is sinful. Flow of the story is great. Copy received in exchange for an honest and Unbiased review
About Bella SettarraIn Bella’s world all the heroes are gorgeous hunks and the heroines are always beautiful. Having said that, she firmly believes that ‘handsome is as handsome does’ and that ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’. (She is also a big fan of clichés as well as alliteration!)
She has been hanging out with her ‘imaginary friends’ for a couple of years now and finds the profession exhilarating and intriguing. Her stories are all Erotic Romances, although they vary considerably in subject-matter.
One of the things she absolutely loves to write is light BDSM and her Collar and Cuffs series (Etopia Press) received an ARe Bestseller Award for Waiting on Summer, which has also been nominated for a BDSM Con Golden Flogger Award. This series was set in a BDSM club in Miami, and was a joy to write.
She also loves writing Cowboy Romances and was thrilled when the first book in her The Men of Moone Mountain series, (Etopia Press), entitled Ménage on Moone Mountain, received a nomination for the Ménage Romances Fan’s Award 2015 and became an ARe Bestseller, and the third book in this series, Ménage on Ryder Ranch was also nominated for the Erotic Ménages Romances Award 2016 . The fourth book in this series, Ménage at the Mode Boutique is now also available in digital format. She is currently writing another Cowboy series, Midnight in Montana (Siren Publishing), the first of which, Dallas at Midnight, is already available, while the second book, Meet Me at Midnight, is due for publication in June 2016.
Her writing career began, however, in the fantasy/myth genre, with her first series Sirens and Sailors (Siren Publishing). Although this was a series of six novels, it actually started out as a short story! This was a delight to write and was proof positive that her High School Classical Studies lessons weren’t entirely wasted.
She has also had a couple of short stories published in Men for Hire and Men for Hire 2 (Luminosity Publishing) and even had some rather raunchy poems included in Coming Together in Verse.
Not everyone is perfect – but it’s the character flaws which make them interesting, she believes. As in life, things don’t always run smoothly, but it’s the twists and turns which provide the drive to keep going, even when it just feels like an uphill struggle. Bella is currently fighting her own battle against breast cancer – a battle which she is determined to win – and believes that all women have the right to feel sexy even when they are battle-scarred.
She hopes you enjoy your foray into her world and would love to connect with you at:
