Tempting Darkness by Jessica Hall

Cruel, is what Aleera's mates were, taking all the pleasure in hurting and humiliating her. It was to be her punishment for running from them, but how could she not? They killed her parents and burned down her home, delighting in watching her grieve.

And she'd fled, for six years, she avoided them, but running into an alley, surrounded by werewolves and low on magic had her doing the one thing she never thought she would.

Aleera called on her mates for help, and they made sure she understood that she had a debt owed, and they would collect it without mercy. Our all-time favourite, one of the best smutty romance books on the platform.

Hello Lovely Readers This book may contain content some readers may find triggering. It is a dark paranormal romance, and the four main male leads are brutal toward the female lead. Some may have noticed I said four Male leads. As most of my readers know, I primarily write reverse harem romances, meaning one woman with multiple love interests. No, she doesn’t have to choose between them—a list of some triggers you may find in the book below. Degradation, Blood Play, Abuse, Dub-con, torture. Non-con, Humiliation. This is a dark Fae-Creatures book loosely using the term Fae as there are different variants of Fae. However, Dark Fae is not your average Tinkerbell. There is no sprinkling of pixie dust, unicorn farts, or spreading the skies in rainbows. My characters are darker and crueler, with no limits. So if you are unfamiliar with Dark Paranormal Romance and Reverse Harem, or even slightly confused still, I suggest you give old google a search. If you're okay with the dark stuff and wish to continue reading, well, jump right in for a stomach-dropping, intense ride, and I will see your lovely dark souls on the other side.


Feral by Pickylove

Adrienne Knight was broken beyond repair, Lucas concluded when he first met his mate. Such pain, misery, distrust, edge, hysteria, paranoia, and the marks. She bore too many marks of the torture she had suffered. But he couldn't let her go, and though everyone deemed it impossible, he resolved to bring her peace. And healing.

Tortured in her body and soul by her mate who got off of her pain, Adrienne wished sometimes for death. But all she got was more brutality. However, one day, an answer came. Escape. Using powers she didn't think existed, she fled from her captors, only to get run over and taken to a new pack with people who seemed to not want her dead or tortured. But she'd been bitten too many times and trust was something she could never give. As well as her heart to the Alpha she felt inexplicably drawn to.

The Bad Boy's Princess by Red Inkling

The best smutty romance novels are the ones with a twisted romantic plot, and this book is the perfect example.

When Mireille's overprotective brother takes ill, she is forced to stay with his best friend while he travels for his treatment. She hopes she may finally be free to live like she has always dreamed of, but her hopes are crushed when she realizes that Dante Romano is worse than James.

He breathes down her neck, asserts himself in her life in every way possible, and refuses to let her be with other men. Soon, Dante stakes his claim on her and Mireille comes to understand just how much trouble she's in, because Dante always gets what he wants. More than that, he has secrets, wicked, sexy secrets that she know she should run from, but it only draws her closer to him.

Domineering Billionaire's Maid by Mehaklovely

Nanz has been working for a year since her mother passed away to settle a debt owed to the Wilsons, and if there was anything she'd learned over the last twelve months, it was how to hide and avoid the Wilson Brothers, whose reputations preceded them. It was said they only needed to look upon a woman to completely own and dominate her and while Nanz had a penchant for exploring wild things, she decided they were a risk she definitely would not be taking.

Only, fate had other plans for her, and one of her usual charades sends her face-to-face with them, and she soon understands why they were often warned not to play with fire, because Manik and Edward were twin flames and she was more than willing to get burned by them. Certainly one of the smuttiest romance novels out there.

Sex Slave To Alien Masters by Gracey

Ciara was working when it happened. One second, she was in the parking lot and the next, she was in a place she had never seen before, laid out bare before a group of men who took in her appearance with scrutiny. She was bound, enslaved and up for auction, only by four men who seemed like humans and were anything but.

And when they claim her as theirs, Ciara finds herself in a struggle between giving in to her masters and returning to the life she's used to; to a world where her name, her presence and silence didn't matter to anyone. It wasn't a very difficult decision to make; she belonged with them.

Their sharper scents, her innate jealousy when they're with other women.

But Ettie's plans are thwarted when the Alpha's son, Victor, takes an interest in Alina, making her an offer to catch her during the hunt to keep the other males off her.
