Author: Niquel
Genre: Erotic Romance
Series: The Forbidden Series, Book 1

Love? What is love? At the age of twenty-four it has been nothing but a cruel joke for Alecia Moore. She’s lost someone near and dear to her, and has endured countless heartache’s ever since. As an artist, she’s learned to cope through her art; it was her only escape from it all. Goal driven-yet optimistic, she continues to wear her heart out on her sleeve, hopeful that she’ll find true love. 

Allan Shaw only cared about two things, himself and sex. As a construction worker, he’s built things all of his life except relationships. He was smart, attractive, and at the age of twenty-eight, he knew how to get anything he wanted from a woman. 

The two met by chance, and an intense steamy love affair blossomed. After a few short months, they developed strong feelings for each other, and realized there was more to this than just sex. 

Everything was going well until, Alecia made one stupid mistake out of a jealous rage after a party. Although she was forgiven, she had no idea how drastically her life would change-the moment that mistake was MADE…



He swiftly ripped off his towel and unzipped the jacket to my sweat suit, exposing my bare chest. Al gently kissed my neck, once below my ear then slightly above my collar bone, while sliding the pink fabric off my shoulders. He lightly brushed my curls onto my back and laid me down on top of his sheets.

“Lift your hips,” he said as he tugged my pants off my waist and onto the floor. Rubbing his smooth palms across the top of my thighs, he gradually pried my legs apart and nuzzled his mouth against my wetness.

“Fuck, Allan!” I moaned softly.He grasped a hold of my hips and pushed his tongue further inside of me. My breathing sped up and my mouth opened wide, screaming as I was about to come and he stopped. 

“Not so fast, it’s time to pay up.” He pulled me to my feet then pushed me down to my knees in front of him. “Open up.”

He pumped his cock until it was rock hard and shoved it in my mouth. Slow and steady at first, then he tightly grasped the back of my hair, as he forcefully shoved it down my throat.

“That’s it, good girl.” He gathered the rest of my hair in one hand and slapped the back of my neck with the other.

Blood Magic on Goodreads

My name is Mel Morgan and I'm a Tracker. I find people for a living. The people I help have no idea I know exactly how they feel because I've lost someone too. If only I could have found the one person I've been looking for all these years.

My current case is no ordinary abduction. Before long I'm neck deep in blood magic - the worst kind. I need the help of a necromancer if I'm to free the kid. Doesn't mean I have to like it.

When sexy djinn Saleem asks for help things get a little hot to handle. But how can I say no? Dodging demons and sorcerers are just part of my day job.



"So you'll arrest me because I spoke to a guy? Mighty protective of you, Detective." I smiled, injecting a little charm into the turn to my lips. "I always knew there was a reason you followed me around twenty-four seven, Detective. I just never realized it was because you had the hots for me."

A snort of laughter emanated from his dark-haired partner and I tilted my head to address him. "So who are you supposed to be? You the latest sorry sucker they found to babysit this fool?" I pointed a thumb at Fulbright who choked with fury at my words. Not that being polite to Fulbright had ever been my strong suit.

I have been a writer from the time I was old enough to recognise that reading was a doorway into my imagination. Poetry was my first foray into the art of the written word. Books were my best friends, my escape, my haven. I am essentially a recluse but this part of my personality is impossible to practise given I have two teenage daughters, who are actually my friends, my tea-makers, my confidantes… I am blessed with a husband who has left me for golf. It’s a fair trade as I have left him for writing. We are both passionate supporters of each other's loves – it works wonderfully…

My heart is currently broken in two. One half resides in South Africa where my old roots still remain, and my heart still longs for the endless beaches and the smell of moist soil after a summer downpour. My love for Ma Afrika will never fade. The other half of me has been transplanted to the Land of the Long White Cloud. The land of the Taniwha, beautiful Maraes, and volcanoes. The land of green, pure beauty that truly inspires. And because I am so torn between these two lands – I shall forever remain cross-eyed.

Book blurb for Upon Your Honor

Deception is a dangerous path…

New York City, August, 1891 – Orphaned after the death of her father, Chloe Waverly stows away on La Voyageur to escape the clutches of her cruel fiancé, Lamonte Beckett. Gabriel Hill, a strange and compelling gentleman, comes upon Chloe and promises to protect her without knowing the true circumstances of why she is running away. During their journey, Gabriel doesn’t bargain on being distracted by her fair beauty or succumbing to her many charms.  As their attraction to each other grows, so does the danger and Gabriel suspects things are not as they should be.

Both are determined to get to New Orleans, where she can start a new life.  But, once they reach their destination, events spin out of their control and Chloe is captured by the fiancé she escaped. Gabriel is left wondering if he can overlook her betrayal. Soon he finds himself in a race against time, to reach her before Beckett can exact revenge.


He paused outside the door of the cabin, rested his forehead lightly against it. He turned his body slightly; his ear against the wood, and wondered if he could hear anything on the other side. Was she sleeping now? What was she doing? Had she actually been affected by the events that occurred today? She had certainly not shown it. Her courage was astounding. He wanted to hold her against him, reassure himself that she was well, that she had not come within a hair’s breadth of losing her life. It was not to be.
No, he should not bother her. He turned away, but stopped. Something drew him back, though. The desire to see her again won out. He returned to the door, grasped the handle and turned the knob. It didn’t budge. He shook his head in a wry fashion. So she thought she could defeat him. He unearthed a key from his pocket and inserted it in the lock, and the sound grated for a moment. He opened the door and stepped inside, shut the door behind himself.
A mass of blonde curls splayed across the bed. With real concern, he stepped forward to check on her. Her eyes were closed as he leaned over her, and her breath stirred over him. She was obviously all right, but he did not immediately step away. She was asleep, and his heart constricted in his chest as he watched her. She looked like an angel. He paused over her for a moment, inhaling her feminine fragrance, then brushed his lips over her cheek. He froze as she twitched slightly, then went still. “Ah, mon ange, if only this were possible.”
Finally, he stepped away, knowing full well she would be outraged if she knew he was there. He saw a letter on the desk and curiosity got the better of him. When he saw who it was addressed to, he picked it up.

Dearest Gabriel,

It pains me to say this, but I must. There is much you do not know about me, and I am only endangering you if I stay. If you receive this, I have most likely found a way off of La Voyageur. Believe me, it is nothing you have done, and the last thing I want is for you to feel responsible for my abrupt departure.
If I have left, it is simply because I see no other way. There are things in this life I could not have anticipated, and if I stay any longer, I will place you in unnecessary danger. It may affect all of you. I feel, in fact, that I am an omen brought upon this voyage, an unlucky passenger. I should not be welcome into your open arms and hospitality. You have all been so kind, and this betrayal of mine is more than I can bear.
So with a heavy heart, I must leave you. I am truly sorry it has come to this. I never intended to…but, never mind that. Forgive me, if you can.

Your loyal companion,

Chloe Ann Waverly

His heart raced with true panic. Mon Dieu, she could not leave, not now that he’d found her. He’d have to show her that her presence was not unwelcome, but instead encouraged.
She obviously had secrets, many she hinted at but did not reveal in the letter. It did not matter. He could not let her go.
He grasped the letter in his hand and crumpled it in his fist. He shook with an emotion he could not place. Then he left the room abruptly.
