Reverse Harem Romances #PNR #SFR #reverseharem #whychoose

I think one of the most common questions I've seen in romance forums lately is "What is Reverse Harem, exactly?"

 At a very basic level, a reverse harem romance is about one woman in concurrent relationships with three or more men. At the end of the story, rather than choose one among them, she chooses to continue having relationships with all of them.

 Other than that basic premise--encoded in the RH motto "Why Choose?"--a reverse harem may belong to any subgenre of romance. A reverse harem novel may be paranormal, contemporary, science fiction, young adult, adult... as you can see in the variety of reverse harem books I've recently released. :)

  In Rift Spun, a novelette in Night Fire, arachno-mage Rhiann plans to use the magic of the Rift to take down the ruling Archmage Prime, a necromancer who killed her family. To do that, she’ll need to find three men willing to become her familiars—one shifter, one demon, and one angel. Lucky for her, she won’t have to choose only one.

  In All that Glitters, when one of pack-leader Alia's mates is taken by a raiding ship searching for gold, she vows to get him back no matter what it takes. Even if that means teaming up with another pack--the one that was once her pack's greatest rival.

Night Shift: A Reverse Harem Paranormal Romance Collection #PNR #NewRelease #reverseharem


7 ALL NEW Reverse Harem Romances





Women who refuse to choose—and the magical men who adore them.

For a limited time only, this reverse harem paranormal romance anthology from New York Times, USA Today, and international bestselling and debut authors brings you seven sexy stories of love with angels, demons, dragon shifters, mages, mermaids, warlocks, witches, wolf shifters, and more! And our heroines never have to love just one. 

This collection of steamy reverse harem paranormal romances includes the following stories:

How to Train Your Witch by Monica Corwin
Aurelia, Caden, and Winter escaped the wrath of the council once before—until a witch shows up looking to verify their claim of love and devotion, or uncover truth that Aurelia bewitched the men in her life. Able is unlike any man Aurelia has ever met. Unlike her vampire and werewolf lovers, a witch is a new kind of challenge. What happens to love when magic enters the game? 

The Twelve Men of Christmas by Ever Coming
When Dara inherited her father’s position as pack Alpha, she knew she’d have to mate eventually. She’s even narrowed down the field—to twelve men. But now she’s been given an ultimatum: pick a mate or lose the pack. She has until Christmas—twelve days, twelve men. How can she possibly pick just one?

Dr. Jekyll’s Mr. Hydes by Erin Hayes
With taboo thoughts about three guys in her life, Dr. Grace Jekyll has a problem on her hands. But then again, these three men may be just what she’s looking for.

Dragon Huntress by Blaire Edens
For the last seven hundred years, one person in Leonine’s family has stood in the breach between good and evil: The Jagerbose. When Leonine learns she’ll be inheriting the position, she doesn’t have much time to learn all the skills she’ll need to save the world. But she has help. Lots of help. Not only is her first love March helping her to learn how to wield a sword, there’s Geldkeep, a Nordic God who advises her on protocol, and Dane, a delicious Englishman who is a little Bond, and a little Bourne. It would be easy to fall in love with any of the men who are sworn to dedicate their lives to the mission of the Jagerbose, but in order for good to prevail, Leo will have to fall in love with all three. 

The Lost Men of Atlantis by N. R. Larry
She’s the high priestess of the seven seas. They’re her familiars. After failing to assassinate the sea king, Zarya is on the run. Stuck on the surface, she uncovers a plot that just might ruin Atlantis. Luckily, she has her three fiercest warriors with her, and together, they hatch a plan to take back the underwater city from a mad king. But first, they must make good on a promise to a surface dweller involving a nasty bunch of ghosts. 

Vampires Don’t Give Hickeys by Holly Ryan
She's a slayer. They're the vampire nest she can't resist.

Rift Spun by Margo Bond Collins 
Arachno-mage Rhiann plans to use the magic of the Rift to take down the ruling Archmage Prime, a necromancer who killed her family. To do that, she’ll need to find three men willing to become her familiars—one shifter, one demon, and one angel. Lucky for her, she won’t have to choose only one.

Guest Post by Paxton Summers: Why are you so afraid of science fiction romance? #SFR #guestpost #newrelease

Why are you so afraid of science fiction romance?

Okay, I get it, it’s not your thing. But hey, have you read or watched the Hunger Games? Have you read or watched the movie, I Am Number Four? How about Jurassic Park? The Abyss?

Yes? Then you’ve experienced a form of science fiction romance, or science fiction with romance elements.

But wait, none of those take place in space or on a ship, that’s not science fiction.

Oh, but it is.

I understand what you’re saying, but did you know that while many science fiction novels or novellas do take place in space, many others don’t. Even better, you might find a few that cross genres into paranormal, historical, military, and even contemporary and suspense. The nuts and bolts technology is there, just as the flaming clothing and flying crafts, and various other technologies are employed in the Hunger Games (a dystopian young adult romance), to keep the competitors in the arena. Wait, you liked that book? Then I’ve got a series or two for you.

I’ve been talking about misconceptions in science fiction romance all week. The number one misconception is that you have to have a thorough understanding of science to love them. This is not true. Though science is incorporated in many science fiction romance novels, often it flawlessly flows and more often than not, crosses genres, and you don’t need a textbook to grasp the story. Actually, you just have to have an open mind.

Here’s a little secret about science fiction romance you may not have thought about. Science was once fantasy, and many novels written in the genre have a touch of it—sometimes more than that.

Yes, most science was once fantasy. It’s true. Think about it. Two hundred years ago you would have been tried as a witch and burned at the stake for suggesting a person could use a cell phone, or watch plays on the big screen and television. What was once magic to one people, became hard fact, once the myth became proved science. Let’s get a little more modern shall we, and bend some electromagnetic waves to make something or someone invisible to the naked eye. Get out! You can’t do that. Oh yes you can. It’s true. By bending EM waves, you can make a person or object invisible. Science! Booyah. The invisible girl has become a reality. Got to love that.

So, step into my parlor said the spider to the fly. My mission is to hook you on an often misjudged and much too neglected genre, which has more to offer than you can possibly imagine. My challenge, if you chose to accept it, is to pick up the first book in my NA Dystopian series, written as Paxton Summers, called Clone, the Book of Eva. While not a romance, it has romantic elements and it’s a good start if you’re looking to sink your teeth into this genre, but don’t want to jump into the deep end of the pool. 

Clone the Book of Eva is available here:  


 You might discover how friendly and fun this genre is. And don’t be surprised to find that something you’ve been afraid to try, really wasn’t what you thought it was.

Go ahead, pick one up. I dare you.

 ~Paxton Summers



When a world leader’s daughter meets a clone, a doomed love affair begins.

 In the year 2087, a great war erupts on the planet and a struggle to survive begins. One hundred-fifty years later, the continent of America is divided into two factions, Aeropia and The United Regions. There is a shortage of food and an abundance of illness, leaving most to live on the scraps of the wealthy, who wallow in excess.

This is the world Olivia Braun inherits. Sick from birth, she wakes up from surgery with a new heart, only to discover she is the youngest president of Aeropia, an empire that has created and used clones to maintain its position of supremacy since the war. However, Olivia’s rise to power is no accident. Before her transplant, she conspired with a clone to free those enslaved, but the outcome is not what she expected.

Now, enemies hide among the population, and even friends can no longer be trusted. Olivia must make a choice that will decide the fate of an empire. Before her tale of corruption, forbidden love and war ends, the mighty will be brought to their knees.

By a clone.
