Hello! It's nice to meet you.

Thanks so much to Tina Donahue for inviting me to Sweet and Sexy Divas. Though I have been told I'm sweet at times, I definitely tend toward the sexy side in my books.

My first series is called Kitchen Confessions. It is about the women chefs of the Catered Affairs Company. In the kitchen they work hard creating fabulous food and a camaraderie that wraps a cocoon around them. God help the man who tries to hurt one of them—he faces the wrath of them all.

At the Playground, the exclusive BDSM club they all belong to, the women explore the world of Dominance and submission, as each one strives to find the man who can engage her in a loving power-exchange relationship that feed her soul.

The first book in the series is Catering to His Needs.

Ethan is at his wit’s end. Gina, his brother’s ex-wife, has threatened to reveal that Ethan is a member of the Playground, an exclusive BDSM club, unless she gets more alimony from the family trust fund. The scandal that would arise from such a revelation must be avoided at all costs--not only for the sake of Ethan’s reputation, but for the future of his relationship with his treasured sub, Rebecca. 

Rebecca is a single mother working hard to expand her catering business. The only peace she finds from her building stress is in the rope of her strong Dom, Ethan. But Rebecca’s life is not her own. Her teenage son is not handling Rebecca’s divorce well, and Rebecca feels the responsibility for her son’s happiness like a weight on her shoulders. Between her business and her son, she has little time for herself--or the growing emotional demands from her Dom.

Ethan is determined to take their relationship to the next level, and Rebecca is equally determined not to upset her son further by revealing that she has a new man in her life. Fortunately, Ethan is a Dom with a passionate interest in seeing that his sub is happy--even if he has to whip some sense into her. He’s making progress until suddenly his own problems take a turn for the worse. His brother Zach has gone missing under suspicious circumstances and now it’s all Ethan can do just to keep himself out of jail. The cat, as they say, is out of the bag.

As their lives spiral out of control, will Ethan and Rebecca be able to find a way back into each other’s arms?

But she encounters one big problem. The man she’s craved all her life appears on Aunt’s threshold and challenges her. Tested by combat, he’s bolder. Dashing. A distraction. And suddenly too charming to resist.

A gentleman weighs the odds.
Griffith Harlinger, the war-weary fourth earl of Marsden, returns home from his duties in Paris with the Duke of Wellington to celebrate the joys of the Season. At urgent request of his step-mama, he must stop her niece Marjorie from creating a scandal by fleecing her house guests! Griff’s thrilled to engage the one woman who’s tormented him and beguiled him all his life. So he makes Marjorie a bet she can’t refuse: he’ll play her for enough money to buy the house she wants.
But can he let her win if he loves her too much to let her go?
And who really wins when both want what’s best for those they love?

Ogre Daddy 
Authors – Allysa Hart and Rayanna Jamison

Release Date – September 28


Buy LinkAMAZON

Blurb:
The princess was destined to be mine. She just didn't know it yet.
Sparks fly, skirts go up and panties come down. My stubborn princess will learn that her Ogre Daddy is determined to turn our nightmare into the ultimate happily ever after.


Excerpt #1
“Are you ready to talk, little princess?”

She nodded.

“Good, come here then please.” Her cheeks were tinged with a blush of color as she made her way over to me. I sat down on the floor and pulled her into my lap. “Listen, I know we have a long road of recovery ahead of us. Two years of hurt are not going to magically disappear but consider this step one. No more self-deprecation. You are an intelligent woman, and you can find productive ways to convey your insecurities. No more name calling. Got it?”

She laid her head on my chest as I spoke, and I wrapped my arms around her. “Speaking those things gives them power so even if they live up here”—I tapped her head—“they need to stay out of here.” I moved my finger to her mouth and circled her lips.

She surprised me by snapping at my finger almost catching it in her teeth.

“Brat.” I stood her on her feet and faced her toward me. Cupping her shoulders I looked her straight in the eyes. “I mean it, Ari. If I hear any more of that nonsense, I’m going to spank your ass cherry red. No more Mr. Nice Daddy.”

“Okay, I get it. Can I go back to bed now?” She wasn’t taking my threat seriously, I could tell. That was mostly my fault, I had definitely made empty threats, but it obviously was not doing either of us any favors. The little princess was in for a rude awakening next time she poked her ogre.

 Excerpt #2
“Grayson, I want you.”

I stopped dead in my tracks, not even sure that I had heard her quite right. My heart beat fast, and my blood pressure rose. My cock twitched, and I ached with need. Every feeling of arousal I had spent the last hour pushing back rushed to the surface.

I turned to look at her, and the moment my eyes met hers, I knew I had heard correctly. Her eyes were filled with vulnerability and need, and she chewed softly on her bottom lip, looking up at me, then down at the floor, and up at me once more.

God, I wanted her. And she wanted me. I knew that—had known it for a while. But there was one big obstacle. One big green obstacle.

“I’ll hurt you,” I whispered.

She drew a shaky breath and her gaze zoomed in on my bulging crotch. I swore I saw her gulp.

“I want you to,” she answered.


Excerpt #3

His cock was erect with its usual morning wood, but it was no longer green and, while still quite impressive, was now considerably… less large. We both stood staring at it in complete silence until finally, Grayson spoke.

“Well, shit. I’m kinda going to miss the big green guy. We were just getting to the fun stuff.”
Grinning, I leaned against him, reaching down to wrap my hand around his now human dick. 

“I’m thinking we can have plenty of fun with this guy too, even if he is a little late to the party.”

“Mmm.” His lips nuzzled my neck, and his cock twitched in my grasp. My girly parts tingled as they came to life, all but begging to be introduced to this new hunk of flesh. I pressed my body against him, wrapping my arms around his neck, ready to take this celebration into the bed where it belonged.

“We could start right now,” I whispered, grabbing his hand and pulling him back toward the bed.

He moaned loudly, and pushed himself away, creating distance between us. “You have no idea how good that sounds, and I assure you it will happen, but, it seems like there are more pressing matters to attend to at the moment. Because, you know, I went to bed a huge, green ogre, just as I have every night for the past two years, and somehow, I woke up a human. With human size parts. I’m kind of dying to know how that happened, and what this silver lining you were rambling about is.”

5.0 out of 5 VOGIFT—HIS CURSE—HIS DAMNATIONVOOVOODOO—MIND CONTROL—BRAINWASHING--MAGIC

VOODOO—MIND CONTROL—BRAINWASHING--MAGIC

I will have to say, that from the beginning to the end of the story I was so engrossed in the characters, the mystery, the paranormal, and interaction that I did not put the book down.  While the story is fantasy, with magic, spells, good versus evil, it also has some great moral lessons— believing in yourself, not allowing others to steal your joy, and not accepting the deeds of others and burdening yourself with the guilt.  Together, Ms. Rayanna Jamison and Ms. Allysa Hart making an excellent writing duo.

While the story has a fairytale feel, it is also modern and fresh.  There is great chemistry between Grayson, who is turned into a green ogre, and Princess Ariana.  While he is a decade older than her, he had known her since she was a child when he and his father delivered fresh fish to the castle.  They had a great friendship—and as the years went on, they each developed secret feelings never shared.  When the Sea Witch attacks Grayson boat, and the lives of the King and Queen are taken, but Ariana and Grayson lives spared, but not without repercussion. Eventually, years down the road, they will once again come together, where he will keep her safe, allow her to heal, and prepare for battle—and that, as they say, is the rest of the story.

“The sea witch may have won the battle, but I would win the war.”

You can’t help but like Ariana and her sweet nature, but when it comes to Queen Lamia, even with her black magic, she can’t completely overpower Ariana—deep down, her gut feelings will rebel and with the help of the Green Ogre, she will break the hold.  But how will she help the others trapped by the spells? 

The story will have Grayson hearing Ariana crying out in pain and come upon Queen Lamia viciously whipping her.  While he rescues her and breaks the spell of control cast over her, she frets and is in despair that she was a bad princess, not helping the people, that she has failed her parents.  Grayson knows she needs guidance, and he becomes Ogre Daddy and will hold her accountable, not accepting her belittling herself, and even will punish her by spanking her when she does—he will enact tough love. 

“There is a difference, you know.  Punishments are administered with love and meant to teach a lesson.  Abuse breaks you down and forces submission.  I don’t want to hear any more of that nonsense, Ariana.  You belong here with me.  I want you here with me, and you will stay here with me.”

Grayson is naturally dominant, but fairly easy-going and has a passion for baking, being green, he is limited to home, and the use of the Internet for supplies, along with taking care of his garden.  It is his baked goods and kindness that help him win Ariana over while she is under the spell of the Lamia.  When he has her in his home, healing, getting stronger, they are also developing romantic feelings for each other.  When he has to spank her for demeaning herself, it will make those feelings only become stronger.  Eventually, with her strong persuasion, he will give in, and they will become lovers. 

“Nothing you have is something I haven’t seen before.  But let me assure you, everything I have is nothing you have ever seen before or will ever see again.”

Ariana’s new found freedom has her become impetus and will go against his direct orders, and he will have to be very strict with her, but that is a turning point in the story. What will it take for Ariana to reach inside herself for answers in defeating the evil Lamia and freeing her friends and the village?  Learning to believe in herself, having faith, and the support of Grayson, along with his guidance will have good overpowering evil.  For the answers, you will just have to read the story and find out.

The story has explicit sex scenes, including a human with a green ogre.  It will also show the difference in abuse and corrective punishment.

Excerpt and Insider Info: "Death's Shadow" by Dariel Raye and Muffy Wilson





This is our story in the "Death and Damages" mystery/thriller boxed-set




How far would you go to bring your twin’s killer to justice?

No one notices when Brianna Denton goes missing every weekend. With no immediate family or close friends left, being alone is something with which she has become well-acquainted, but when her sister is murdered, she finds herself on a lone mission to identify the killer.

According to the authorities, ‘no body, no case.’ Brianna’s quest to find her sister’s murderer despite the police department’s refusal to help, draws her into a life of drugs, alcohol, and prostitution – the very elements that led her twin to the shadows and rat holes of the underbelly of North Beach.


Drawn into the dark underground society to face Tatianna’s killer, Brianna is about to come face-to-face with her own shocking destiny. As she unearths long-buried secrets, the tight edge of reality comes to light, challenging her tenuous grip on life as she knows it. Finding the answers she seeks could lead her to an even darker place.

Excerpt from "Death's Shadow"

"Death's Shadow" - from the "Death and Damages" mystery boxed-set
This excerpt is from the story Muffy Wilson and I just sent to the editor. It's raw right now, and editors always make it better. It's a rewrite of Muffy's  story about a young graduate student who takes to the streets (and I mean that in every sense of the word) to find her twin sister's killer:

There would be no sleep tonight, restless or otherwise. Brianna stepped out onto the fire escape. Tabby curled around her feet as usual while she sat, gazing and thinking back to her arrival in the city. It seemed so long ago now. So much had happened. She remembered feeling compelled to come down from grad school. When she came to the city, she came to bury her sister. Images of her sister’s face flashed before her, scarred and bloody, a reminder of her mission, her purpose.

When she arrived at the apartment, the first thing she did was shower and taxi to the hospital to make arrangements for her sister, but no one knew anything about her twin, nothing about Tatianna Denton. Admitting had no records. Nothing in the ER. The ambulance service knew nothing.

She had checked everywhere, unable to shake a strange feeling of déjà vu. Tatianna hadn’t been dropped at the doors to the ER, so where was she? She had no doubt her sister had been killed. She felt it, a deep hollow inside her, and yet there was no body. Even now, no body had been found, and Brianna was starting to believe it never would. Horror movies were too often based on true stories, and the ways to get rid of bodies were endless.

Woodstock 1969 & Babyboomers —Back To The One I Love

I recently watched the movie The Book Club and loved it. It's funny, a great portrayal of women over 60, and the book they read in the movie, the catalyst for everything in the film, is an erotic romance book. So, of course, I love that move. Gracie and Frankie is a funny comedy series on Netflix where the main characters are over 60.


I wrote a comedy romance novella about a hero and heroine who are over 60, Back To the One I Love.  Cash met Keith at the Woodstock Art and music festival in 1969 when she climbed onto the back of his motorcycle and he gave her a ride into the festival. They've been together ever since, but now that they are in their 60's and they're both retired, apathy and boredom has set in, and Cash thinks she may have gotten on the back of the wrong motorcycle all those years ago. 

Through the help of a goddess posing as a marriage counselor and a 1960's Volkswagon Van Time -Machine, they go back to the festival in 69 but their ages don't change they're both still seniors, citizens, in their 70's at Woodstock. 

I was thirteen when Woodstock happened. So, I missed it. I was too young. But, I've always wanted to go. So by writing this fun, zany book I got to go with Cash and Kieth, at least in my mind. 

Here's the blurb:
The thrilling adventure of first love and self-discovery is just as groovy the second time around.
A free-spirited, baby boomer couple, Cash and Keith, find their marriage of forty-five years unraveling amid apathy, boredom, and retirement. Cash feels Keith is no longer attracted to her and he’s consumed with a couch-potato life of streaming Firefly all day long. Trying to hang on to their marriage and rekindle the romance they lost along the way they turn to a counselor. The therapist uses an unorthodox magical method of a time-traveling Volkswagen van to cast them back into the garden…four days of Eden at Woodstock….the epic music festival… where they first fell in love.


Will the freedom of Woodstock lure Keith and Cash to push their individual boundaries and seek new lovers? Or can Déjà Vu and grooving to music….truly lead them to rediscover the peace, love, and harmony they once shared?
