Cian DeMarco, a sexy, rockstar billionaire vampire has lived in San Francisco's prestigious Cliff Side neighborhood in his beautiful mansion overlooking both the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean for seventy years.

Magdalena De la Rosa has it all—Bachelor's degree in journalism, a job she loves in California, a gorgeous apartment in San Francisco, and a dream guy. Except her boyfriend lives and works in Sacramento—an hour and a half drive from the city Magdalena has always fantasized about living in. All her dreams change, however, when she and her girlfriend find their way into an upscale nightclub and she's suddenly swept off her feet by the lead singer of that night's performing rock band, The Lost Boys. 
Sparks ignite between the two until a threat that was thought to no longer exist returns to wreak havoc on Cian's and Magdalena's lives. Will the temptation to be together outweigh the reality of what Cian must do to keep Magdalena safe from harm?

The Sapphire Sacrifice

Author: Ravyn Rayne
Series: Gem Apocalypse Book Three
Publisher: Blushing Books
Genre: Dystopian, Romantic Erotica
  detail_3496_200x300
A virus designed to murder Sapphire’s. No one from Brayleigh saw it coming. Neither James nor Aria expected four men in a deserted city to attack. Thrown into the back of a van, James is captured by claimers – men that hunt Sapphire’s and bring them into quarantine, where they must settle their debt for treatment. Those that can’t pay off their debt are held in the broker’s quarters until they’re bought by angels, often resulting in slavery, hunting humans, and a host of other horrendous atrocities. Aria is different. She’s naturally immune, or so she’s told. On a mission to rescue James, she finds herself in danger and quickly learns the power of friendship, commitment, and undying love. With a taste of age play, spanking, and a master/slave relationship with voyeurism, this dystopian erotic adventure is sure to leave you satisfied.  


 

Five Questions with James

(a character interview for The Gem Apocalypse series)

  Of all the places you've lived, what is your favorite? 
That's a tough question to answer. I loved Brayleigh, before the uprising. I know it wasn't a perfect society, but I was happy. It will always be my home as I have fond memories of my childhood growing up at the royal palace.  

  If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? 
Give me bacon! It's hard to come by but I absolutely love it.   

You've had you're share of women at the royal harem. Any aside from Aria that you've loved? I've loved all the women I've invited into my home. Who's to say you can't love everyone?
  
  Do you prefer dominating or being dominated? 
I love to spank Aria. So yes, I prefer to dominate my partner. 

  Would you ever let Aria spank you?
I wouldn't bend over and let her spank me, but she can certainly try. I like to remain in charge.  
  


Excerpt

Aria screamed. The air left her lungs, and her cheeks burned red. Sweat trickled down her forehead. Adrenaline pumped through her veins as she fought off their attackers. All four of them were men, a few years older, and they wore black tactical gear. Were they militia? Their eyes were similar with a deep green stoic expression. They could all be brothers. After the genocide of anyone not a sapphire, a person with blue eyes, Aria had taken notice of eye color. They still couldn't get past their differences, not a hundred or even a thousand years later. The world always seemed to be at war over something. Besides, she had never met another person with emerald eyes, and now four of them were attacking James and herself. What the hell was going on? James kicked at the assailant, trying to gain distance between him and the man attacking them, slamming his fist into the assailant's face. Blood oozed from the man's nose. Who was he? What did he want with them? One man grabbed Aria, pinning her arms back, keeping her from stopping the attack on James. Why were they doing this? She attempted to shake the man off her, but his grip tightened. "Let me go!" She stomped hard on the man's toe and then used her elbow to attack his chest behind her. Breaking free, she headed for James, wanting to help him any way that she could. James fought two men and Aria ran forward, slamming her knee into the groin of a third assailant. "Run!" James grabbed her hand and they took off on foot. His hand was wet and gross from the blood caked to his skin. James and Aria were a mess. Thunder rumbled in the distance. The sky a dark murky gray filled with low-lying clouds. Aria's heart beat wildly as if it would leap out of her chest. The pain unbearable, but neither of them slowed. Darting through streets and around broken down vehicles, she knew the men were close. She heard the engine of their vehicle one street over.

Grab the The Emerald Virgin and start at the beginning of the series.

The Emerald Virgin (Gem Apocalypse #1) Published: June 19, 2015 by Blushing Books
Emerald – a girl with green eyes and a rarity after the horrific genocide that slaughtered millions. After the war, King Gideon rose in power. A lust-filled and greedy king that believed in the power of slavery. At eighteen, women were required to come before King Gideon and his four sons, to offer themselves as a courtesan. The princes took only those they found most attractive and alluring. The rest were returned to their homes with a brand on their wrist proving they had been through the process and rejected. Ignoring the ritual was punishable by death. Aria Stone had been kept hidden from the princes and the ceremony, because she was an Emerald. At twenty-three, the royal guards storm her home, murder her mother, and drag her to court. She must face the four princes. A dystopian erotic adventure. 

Excerpt

“Your guards murdered my mother, dragged and drugged me from my home. Anything else you wish to know?” Aria asked, short-tempered.
James stepped close enough to feel his breath against her cheek. “I can see your reluctance to be here, but I assure you no harm will come to you, Aria.”
It was hard to believe him given the circumstances. Aria crossed her arms defensively. She didn’t say a word. There was nothing to say that would please him and make her happy. She wouldn’t lie or pretend to care about him when anger ebbed away at her and boiled in her blood. Not when he made Aria think of her mother and asked her about what happened, as if he pretended to care. Unlike the other women here looking for something, she just wanted her freedom returned. Pretending eluded her.

Excerpt


“Hey!” Aria shouted, not that it did anything to stop their fighting.
“Enough!” James’s voice echoed in the confined space.
The men let go of one another and stood, dusting off the dirt caked to their skin.
A gentleman with red hair and blue eyes stepped toward Aria. He’d been one of the three fighting, a crewmember on the ship. “Do you know what they’re having us do?” he asked.
“No,” Aria said, glancing back at the die lying on the floor. Aria rolled the large die slightly with her hand. It stood up to her waist in height, though it felt lighter than it looked. She’d never seen a die quite so large. Who made it?
“The festival tonight is entertainment for the commander and the tribe. She’s choosing two from the pit and they’ll have to do whatever the die says.”
Aria swallowed nervously as she further examined the giant die. One side showed two people battling with swords. Aria frowned, turning the die onto another side, it revealed a pictograph of two men with guns in a shoot-out. That wouldn’t end well for someone. Her heart skipped a beat, and she rolled the die onto another side, covering her lips in surprise. Was that a paddle? Her cheeks burned and she took a step back from the die.
James didn’t appear nearly as affected as Aria from the news. He stepped forward, resting his hand on her lower back. “Do we know who has been elected for the festival?”
Kali shook her head. “The commander chooses two worthy opponents from the pit of invaders and mainlanders. Seeing as how the mainlanders have assimilated or died,” Kali said, clearing her throat, “it’s safe to say that one of you that has not been chosen by a tribe member, will be selected.”

An Interview with the Author

  What can we expect next from you? About twice a month, you can anticipate a new release! In September, I've got quite a few books coming out, including Hot-Blooded Lust (Federal Agent Chronicles 3) and Grave Misfortune. There's also talk of releasing The Courtesan Slave Trade series in September. It'll be a busy month. I hope you love reading.   What book are you writing right now? Well, it's currently untitled. (I have a few working titles but I'm not sure any of them fit it perfectly). It's a romantic dystopian erotica with a very edgy twist. I'm hoping to have it finished by the end of August. Right now I'm about 7k words in to the story, and I have a very busy month.   When do you typically decide the title for a book? After the book is written or perhaps when it's about 2/3rd's completed. By then I'm usually writing up the book blurb at the same time and working on the title or series name.   Can you tell us about your next upcoming event? I'll be speaking at the Passionate Pen Conference in Arlington, Virginia beginning August 27th. It's hosted by Blushing Books and Lazy Day Publishing.
