Get Hooked on the Ravenswood series: erotic supernatural thrillers from Dark Roast Press!

Deadly Nightshade

In book eight of the Ravenswood series some things never seem to go away; evil that never dies rears its ugly head once again. Juliana Lark (AKA Sister Nightshade of Cloven's cult) has been sentenced by a court of law to a nunnery in California. The state requires her to have regular psychiatric counseling and daily observation while she "heals" from what the court feels was mind control by her former infernal master. But Nightshade hasn't and won't reform; she has too many plans for the future. And her vision includes having a certain witch and occultist as her second-in-command to rule by her side in her grandiose attempt at world domination.

Noah Ravenswood, the object of Nightshade's desire, has enough problems on his hands. His long-time associate Dr. Sarah Bookings has turned troublesome due to her two month association with Tezcatlipoca, the Aztec god known as Smoking Mirror. Sarah has become belligerent and forceful, a total reversal of her usual nature.

When Noah is captured by Nightshade, Sarah has to deal with a new visitor from Noah's past.

In a sealed letter, Rosa and Sarah are directed to call Father Christopher Briggs as soon as possible. But who is Father Chris, and why has he come all the way from the Vatican in Rome to help search for the missing wizard? Sarah distrusts him from the start but Noah's wife Rosa accepts him and his offer of help.

Just as they proceed with the investigation, a horrible demonic venereal disease starts to run rampant through their hometown's citizens. Terrible acts of depraved sexuality begin to surface, putting their rescue efforts on hold. Can Sarah, Rosa, and Father Chris stop the plague and still have time to uncover where Noah is before Nightshade converts the witch to serve her dark ends? Can Noah's family and friends find the cure for Deadly Nightshade?

About Us | Banned Writers

 About Us | Banned Writers

I want to thank Kayelle Allen for bringing this group to my attention. Though my published works don't cross PayPal's arbitrary decency line, my fanfiction did. It's not right to censor what grown humans can purchase to read. Join the protest today, before they move the line again.

  Just Say No Way.  I'm a member of a group called Banned Writers. We are a coalition of  writers, readers, publishers, and  editors who have come together to  fight against the economic censorship  of erotic fiction by  non-governmental organizations and entities who  believe they
