❤️ The Painful Side of Love by Rebecca Rohman


We all make them. But when is a mistake too big to forgive? What happens when the consequences of our mistakes are so disastrous, they cause excruciating pain to everyone we hold near and dear?

San Francisco’s Dr. Morgan Drake makes one mistake. One colossal mistake that could cost him everything and everyone he loves—including himself.

When interior designer, Zoë Drake sees small changes in her husband, her investigations point to a mammoth problem. The happy marriage and great relationship they share quickly begins to evaporate. What’s worse—it’s all happening when Zoë’s going through some changes of her own—at a time when she might need Morgan the most.

With a husband who is at times completely absent, a child who increasingly blames himself for his parents’ issues, and a cryptic call that introduces the element of danger and fear, Zoë will soon realize that there is a painful side of love. As their world falls apart will there be anything that can secure their bond, or will this chapter of their lives come to a catastrophic end?

The Painful Side of Love is a follow-up novella to Rebecca Rohman’s romantic suspense novel, Love M.D. If you like romance with a tad of steam, a huge injection of suspense and being taken on a roller-coaster of emotions, then this novella is for you.

Genre: Romance, Contemporary, Multicultural
Heat Level: Sensual
Cover Artist: Kim Killion
Release Date: March 30, 2019


Abandoned by her father at a young age, beauty therapist, Patricia Owusu, has learned the hard way that men can’t be relied on. She’s determined to make it on her own without falling into the cultural trappings of marriage. However, when she finds herself pregnant after a torrid love affair with African-American financial consultant, Ty Webber, she discovers one man’s resolve to stick around.
When Ty discovers Patricia is carrying his baby, he offers marriage; because real men take responsibility for their actions. He isn’t prepared for Patricia’s stubborn determination to make it on her own. But nothing will prevent him from claiming his child or the woman he considers his.


Can Ty convince Patricia to take a chance on him to help provide a loving home for their baby, or will Patricia’s mistrust lead her to miss out on true love and rob her child of the type of father she never had?





EXPECTING TY’S BABY © Empi Baryeh 2019



“I don’t need taking care of, you know,” Patricia said when they stepped outside. Her voice came out low, a whisper, which nonetheless projected in the still warmth of the night.


After several seconds without a response from him, she turned sideways. He stared ahead, his profile stoic. Finally, she heard his deep intake of breath.
He looked at her, and thunder might as well have struck after the flash of…annoyance? Impatience? Incredulity?
“Are you always on the defensive?”
Aggravation. Despite the balmy, breezeless air, Patricia shivered. Perhaps she should have been scared, but she wasn’t. Somehow, Ty didn’t strike her as the kind of man whose patience wore thin as easily as wind blew away flakes of cotton. Yet, she also realized she’d pushed a button or two between yesterday and today.
She began to say something, but her response staggered as she realized she didn’t know how to answer his question. She sighed. “It’s always been just me and my mum. I guess I’m simply used to having to stick up for myself.”
His look softened. “Trish, I know you’re a strong woman. Hell, it’s one of the things I admire about you. But did it occur to you I only wanted some alone time with you?”
She couldn’t help it. She giggled. “You could have just said so.”
“In that case, how about this?”
He faced her fully, subjecting her to a powerful blast of his magnetism. Electricity jolted through her, and she realized he’d touched her; warmth infused her body where his hands bracketed her waist.
The next instant, she was plastered against him, her soft abdomen privy to the state of his desire. His heated breath wafted over her face, a mix of him and the whiskey he’d had at dinner. An avalanche of sensations, fierce and unrelenting hit her in the gut.
Then the worst thing happened. The most embarrassing moment of her life.
She threw up.
On him.
For several seconds, she could only stare in horror at her dinner, now a less than palatable concoction splattered on Ty’s clothes and shoes.
He still held her as she doubled over, one hand on her shoulder, the other rubbing her back.
“Trish, what’s going on?” He pushed back a few strands of her braids hanging loose from the confines of her up do.
“I am so sorry,” she said.
“We need to get you to a hospital.”
Crap! Her stomach lurched again, and she figured out what had triggered the emesis. Thankfully, what came out the second time was minimal. She took in a deep breath, exhaling through her mouth. It seemed to help.
Ty held up the bottle of water he’d taken with him from dinner. “Here—”
“Please stop talking,” she gasped, turning away from him. “I need a minute.”
“This could be food poisoning. You need a doctor.”
“I don’t, and it’s not food poisoning. It’s the alcohol.”
“You didn’t drink.”
“No, but you did.”
His features assumed a frown, his confusion absolute. “You’re sick because I drank?”
“I’m not sick. I’m—”
She stopped abruptly, tossing different possible explanations in her head, all of them partial truths. No matter what anyone said, keeping quiet and outright lying were not the same. She wasn’t prepared to do the latter, but she’d spoilt her chances of doing the former.
His eyes narrowed. “You’re what?”
She couldn’t believe she was going to tell him. “I’m pregnant, Ty.”

Interview with Robin Rance

Hello Everyone!

Today, I’m pleased to have author Robin Rance here. She stopped by to talk about her newest book Street Hustle along with her upcoming projects.

So please give a warm welcome to Robin.


Robin thank you so much for stopping by, if you could please introduce yourself and tell me how your writing career started?

I use the pen name, Robin Rance. I’m a retired letter carrier, and I spent my career in the post office walking the streets.

I’m the oldest child of eight, and we grew up poor. My father was always looking for work, and we spent a lot of time in hand me downs, but we were readers.

My first book came to me in a dream, that kept coming night after night. I wrote it down, and before it was finished, I had another dream. That’s how my books come to me, either in a dream, or in a song.

Congratulations on the release of Street Hustle, the third volume in the Street Smart series. Tell us more about the series and what readers can expect in the third book?

The Street Smart Series started as a tribute to my mother. She helped the homeless everywhere we went with her. She was always giving them her last dollar or buying them food. I wanted to write a book she would have wanted to read, and one that brought a little light to the homeless epidemic, and what they go through.

The first book, Introducing John Smith takes place in Seattle. We spent an entire day walking around the area by the Puget sound, and observing their misfortune. The second book, Street Surrender takes you to New York, and to the world of prostitution, and drugs. The third book, and the one coming out on the 11th, Street Hustle, takes you to Chicago. After spending time in Chicago visiting my daughter, I was surprised at how much crime happened on a daily basis. Street Hustle deals a little with sex trafficking and drugs.

There will be fourth book in the series, Street Harmony.

Street Hustle

Aside from Street Smart, you’ve also written three other series along, what are some of the benefits and challenges you found with writing a book series?

I love working on a series, but sometimes it’s hard to keep the story moving forward, and you don’t want to leave out any pertinent information from a previous book.

In my series, Never Forget, the first book started as a tribute to my grandmother. I was very close to her and I wanted to write down some of the fund things she used to say to me. However, while writing this story, my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer, and it was reflected in the book. The second one was hard to write, because I worked on it while my sister was going through kemo, and surgery to remove her breasts.

The third book in the series was easy to write. It’s one of my favorite books. Aries Jones is a soldier who is dealing with PTSD. I have many family members who serve this country and I spoke with them to get some insights to this awful syndrome. I plan on doing a fourth book in the series next year.

You’ve also written a few standalone novels; do you have any plans to turn them into a series or will you leave them as they are?

I would love to do another book after Graysen Cooper, but nothing yet. Listen, on the other hand,  has many more stories to tell.

I understand you’re a multi-genre author, you’ve written everything from romance to fantasy, did you it difficult to switch from one genre to another?

I’m not as good in some of the genres as I am in others, but it was fun to try. I’m working on my first Vampire book, and I have a thriller scheduled after that. I have no control when I start on a book, my muse pushes me into it.

When you write a book do you plan everything out in advance or are you a go with the flow person?

I don’t plan anything. I’m as surprised at the turn of events as they happen as the reader is. My characters speak to me, and while I’m writing they are in my dreams, which can be quite entertaining when you are working on a wester, a gang book, and a vampire one all at the same time.

Last question, can you share with us any projects you have in the works?

Blood Red, the Vampire book comes out in May, and I’ve started a thriller scheduled to be released in September. I’m also working on the second book in my Bride4s Of Benson historical Western series. It’s title, Dead In The Dust

For fun:

Favorite movie? The Last Of The Mohicans

Favorite dessert? Raspberry cheesecake or carrot cake, I can’t choose.

Best time of day to write? As soon as I wake up.

Favorite color? Blue

Current book you’re reading? I have three I’m trying to finish, Trailer Trash, by Crystal Benson, From Brat To Bronco, by Hunter Marshall, and Angels and Outlaws, by Amber Daniels

I never imagined I’d be a part of the world that Michael Williams lived in. His family was one of the wealthiest in the country, and I’d met him by chance…

My dream was always to help those who were less fortunate; especially the ones who were living with addictions. I’d lost my brother because of those things.

Then Michael Williams entered my life, unexpectedly. His piercing blue eyes almost made me forget about my dreams. Almost.

I’d even considered giving up everything I’d worked for and just focusing on us, Michael had all the money in the world, he was the sexiest man I’d ever seen, and he was into me – me!

Until fate forced my hand. I got a phone call from an old friend of my brother’s. I had to do the hardest thing that I’d ever done and break off the engagement, with the man I loved, or I would lose what I’d fought for my entire life.

I was crazy for Tempest Carson. When she was near me, all I could think about was what else I could do for her…

She was sexy, brash, and outspoken. Did I mention sexy? I asked her to marry me. My life couldn’t get better.

Then Tempest walked into my home and threw the engagement ring I’d given to her, in my face – without an explanation.

I had almost given up on us until I read a letter that she’d left for me.

This is the third book in the Street Smart series. Follow Tempest and Michael as they find themselves in the world of Sex trafficking, and drugs.

Blood Red

Blood Red

Natalia Darling was looking forward to spending her honeymoon in a modern-day castle with her new husband…

I needed to pee, so I waited for my maid of honor, to return from whatever she was doing, and help me find a larger bathroom stall. I wore my wedding dress, and my nervousness wasn’t going to let me wait until after my ceremony.

I could almost imagine my future husband standing in his finest suit waiting for me at the altar of one of the most prestigious churches in this city. And if Willow didn’t get here soon, I’d have to hunt for the restroom on my own or spend the entire ceremony dancing from side to side, in these heels.

That does it, I’ll find one myself, and Willow Jackson, you had better have a good explanation for not being here when I need you most…

And apparently she did, her hand was down the front of my husband to be’s dress pants, in the ladies room, in the back of the church, and once I stepped inside, they both tried to explain.

But how do you explain that kind of betrayal?

I’d scheduled the time off from work, I had the reservations for Castle Cozy in my purse, and I had a new outfit to wear every day of the week. Why shouldn’t I go ahead with our – correction my plans, and spend the time reflecting over what had gone wrong.

My plans were going great until I remembered that I hadn’t charged my phone earlier. So, after using the remainder of my charge on GPS, my cell died, and I got lost, in the middle of a blizzard, while searching for the castle.

Serhan Gorky…

I kept myself hidden in my small, modern-day castle in the Adirondacks. It was modern compared to my family’s castle in, Kaliningrad, and small was an understatement. However, it was mine and had been for nearly one hundred years.

I had to leave my home, and family behind. I was tired of being called a monster, and a bloodsucker. And the deciding factor had been when my wife betrayed me with my twin, and I couldn’t get past that.

The woods surrounding me were abundant with wildlife, and though I knew I’d occasionally miss the taste of human blood, I could survive on the blood the animals would provide.

I was comfortable here.

I had everything I needed.

Until her scent permeated the air.

     Follow Natalia as she discovers a world full of the monsters her father read to her about at night. But these monsters didn’t want to play nicely.

Writing Goals for 2019


Hello again everyone!

It’s the beginning of the new year and like many people I’m making resolutions. Most of the resolutions revolved around my books and I’ll get to them in a second. But first, I wanted to reflect on how my writing career went in 2018.

Early in the year, I had a psychic reading from Mini Truth, Psychic. (Had to give her a shoutout). During my reading, she revealed that my life’s path is to be a writer, which is very accurate.

This year, I had lots of new writing opportunities come my way. During the summer, I was offered a job writing for Soap Opera Spy, where I write about the latest rumors surrounding Y&R and B&B. Then in September, I became a columnist for The Chairshot, a wrestling site where I discuss the latest WWE stories.

Aside from my freelance work, my career has an author continued to grow. In September, I published Westmore: Endless Devotion, the eighth volume in the series.


I also participated in the holiday anthology Twelve Tales A Telling along with authors J.C. Wing, A.K. Lawrence, Lark Griffing, Tracy Gilmore, and Randy Brown. We created a collection of stories inspired by the holiday song Twelve Days of Christmas. We each picked two days and had to write a story inspired by the gifts. I choose two turtle doves and seven swans a swimming.

Now, that I’ve reflected on 2018, it’s time to move on to my goals for 2019.

I’m hoping this year I will publish at least 2 books, maybe 3, but we’ll see how that goes.

One of the books will be Westmore volume 9 (yes, there will be more to tell with the families). As for my other book, I haven’t figured out what that’s going to be. I’ve got a lot of stories that are incomplete and I need to finish them. I just haven’t figured out which one to work on first, so I may need your help choosing one.

Well, I better head to the writing cave if I want to get a headstart on reaching my goals.

Wish me luck!


2018 in Review


2018 is about to come to an end and I’ve had a chance to reflect back on everything that happened this year. Let’s just say this year was filled with heartache and a lot of challenges. While it was difficult, everything that happened made me into becoming a stronger person.

If any word described 2018 for me its strength, so let me take you on my journey for the past year.


As I stated before, there was a lot of heartache this year. The most recent tragedy was the death of our believed cat Pudding. He passed away on December 14th, and it happened so quickly. We had him for 13 years, and he came up as a stray. When we were living at our old apartment we used to bring him in at night, then let him out during the day so he could ramble around. Then he got hit by a car and had to have his leg amputated and he became a house cat.

His death hit us hard and we’re still grieving his loss. But that wouldn’t be the only tragedy we’d suffer this year.

In February, my grandmother passed away at the age of 91. Anyone who knew my grandma would tell you that she was a strong, independent, and caring person. She loved helping others and as she got older, she still loved to get outside and do her yardwork. But within the last year she had gotten weaker and by February she had gotten worse.

It’s been difficult without her here. I miss how she used to worry about the slightest thing or how she’d fuss about someone who drove her crazy.

After her passing, I had to step up to become the head of the household because my mother wasn’t in the best of health (I’ll get that to a second).

As you all know I’ve mentioned in the past, I have a fear of driving. Well, I’m happy to report that I overcame my fear. A good family friend Teresa got me behind the wheel again and helped me regain my confidence. I’ve been driving for almost 9 months now and thanks to the help of my dad, I was able to get a new car.


It was important for me to drive again because I needed to overcome my fear and another reason is because I needed to take care of my mother. For a while, she’s been dealing with some memory loss and in recent months it’d gotten worse. It was so bad that there were days she couldn’t remember grandma had passed away. We took her to the doctor and we were informed that she’s in the beginning stages of dementia.

I’m still living with my mom and I’ve taken on the role as her caregiver. It’s sad to see how the dementia has affected her. She does have vitamins and medicine she takes to help keep her dementia from getting worse. I hate to see her this way and I wish she didn’t have to go through this. The only thing I can do is take care of her the best I can.


As you can tell, this year has been rough, but it’s made me a stronger person. I’m not going to lie, I do have my moments where I break down and cry, but then I calm down and move forward.

Heading into the New Year, I know there’s going to be challenges, but I’m ready to tackle them head on.
