The Fragile Ties Series Complete Collection is live!

The Fragile Ties Series Complete Collection is LIVE!

It’s been two years since I released Redemption, and what better way to celebrate than tossing all three books from this dark, intense trilogy into a single collection?


And, seriously, just look at this GORGEOUS cover from Laura Hidalgo and Spellbinding Design. Speaking of… she might have more magic up her sleeve for these books, but I’m not telling what!

Have you waited to dive into this series? Here’s your chance, lovelies!


Abducted. Imprisoned. Tormented.

Taking her was easy. Lianna was her daddy’s spoiled little princess. A beautiful, well-educated heir to her father’s corrupt empire — making her the perfect bait to bring daddy to his knees.

Vengeance. Lies. Destruction.

Forcing her to suffer and submit was thrilling… but breaking the princess was supposed to get David his revenge. Instead she’s betrayed and abandoned as the plans he set in motion tear her world apart.

Revelations. Addiction. Danger.

The truth can hurt, but in Lianna’s case it burned her entire life to the ground and left her kneeling at his feet. David isn’t a good man, but as vicious as he can be… he’s not the only monster at her door.

She’s still heir to a family name drenched in blood, and they’re not going to let her go without a fight, but David won’t let them take anything else from him, and he’s claimed Lianna body and soul.

Slap it on your TBR:


The Acolyte
He never knew I existed. And he sure as hell didn’t care when I showed up on his doorstep, either.
I only did it on a dare. But I guess the hope was there that he’d see me and maybe want to be in my life.
I couldn’t have been more wrong.
He hates me with the fire of a thousand suns even though he doesn’t know me. Maybe that’s just his personality, however, he’ll soon find out that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
Let’s do this.

The God
Life was perfectly fine until some punk knocked on my front door.
He says he’s my kid and I’m assuming that meant I was supposed to fall to my knees and worship at his altar. My knees hit the dirt for no one—not even the alleged fruit of my loins.
Besides, I’ve had someone else on my mind for a while.
Not that I’ve been able to avoid it. Ichabod mumbles about her in his sleep. Maybe the kid wants to meet his auntie… maybe I can finally get some well-deserved revenge.
I can play faux daddy for a little while.
There’s a bigger prize at the end of this rainbow. You can run, little girl, but you’ll never be able to hide.

The Lover
He looks just like him. It’s uncanny and terrifying all at once because I’m afraid that he acts like him too.
Lakyn has to learn a lesson, and this was the only thing I was able to come up with to get him to understand that the world doesn’t revolve around him. That he should care about anyone that cares about him.
I can’t help that I still love him. Twenty years later and it’s only gotten stronger while my resolve has gotten weaker.
I wish Bea was here. She always knew how to handle him.
I’m going to force Lakyn to make me a promise since he never goes back on his word. And maybe, in the end, the three of us will be together again.
Ready to raise hell.

Please UPDATE your copy of Alpha’s Trust!

Please Update Your Copy of Alpha’s Trust! I had a small surprise surgery before I finished Alpha’s Trust on my Cassandra Faye pen name and was still on pain meds when it came time to upload the book. Apparently, I uploaded the ARC version which did not include Mordek’s chapter (ch. 6) or the sneak peek of Alpha’s Secret. I am so sorry! The updated version is now LIVE and Amazon is reaching out to everyone via email who purchased the book to allow them to update their version. Please get the new one, and I hope you enjoy what you missed out on before!
The good news is I’m all healed from my surgery now, and as soon as I finish Scarred Siren on Jennifer Bene, I will be back with the Alphas and Karissa’s pack for Alpha’s Secret.
Thank you all for loving my twisted reverse harem omegaverse!

Are you hungry or fulfilled? Take a break from authorlandia drama with me!

Let’s take a moment, take a breath, and lay down some hard truths about life.

In general, it’s up to every single person how they want to experience life. Sure, things happen to us, and mental health is an absolute bitch, but at the end of our life, we will either be fulfilled by what we did in our life, or we won’t.

Navigating life’s journey requires acknowledging the challenges, including the impact of mental health on our experiences. Especially for women, mental well-being is intricately linked with their overall health, and prioritizing gynecology care Elmhurst, NY, is vital in this regard. Taking the time to address both physical and emotional aspects of health through regular check-ups and consultations at trusted facilities can empower women to proactively manage their mental health. By seeking the necessary support and care, women can work towards a more fulfilling life, breaking free from the barriers that may hinder their journey of self-discovery and personal growth while receiving comprehensive gynecology care.

That means people can live their lives (no matter what happens) in two different ways: fulfilled or hungry.

Let’s talk about what that means.

“Hungry” people are those who look at someone and only see how that person can help *them.* They seek out people they believe will benefit them, or make them feel good, or help them get ahead, etc, etc. But no matter how much they get, hungry people will always feel slighted by the world because they always want more. There are never enough favors you can do for someone like this, never enough attention you can give, never enough praise you can say or text. They are always seeking MORE from the world, and the moment you do not benefit them, or you disagree with them, or you aren’t able or willing to help in the way they want, they will cut you out of their life — but it won’t make them feel better. They will always be hungry, always be grabbing for anything they can get to try and fill that hole inside them, but taking from the world only makes the hunger worse.

Because ‘taking’ is not ‘fulfilling.’

So, let’s talk about “fulfilling” people. These are the people who see another human and look for a way to help. They see a problem and want to help solve it, without expecting anything in return. They are willing to move slower, to sacrifice a win, to miss an opportunity, just to reach down and lift someone up with them. “Fulfilling” people are never empty because they are satisfied by the impact they have on those around them. They support, love, encourage, and help others stand tall because it makes the world better. They offer up their time, their skills, and more, because they sincerely want to make someone else’s day better. And living every day like that, putting good out no matter how bad things get, means every day they feel fulfilled.

Because ‘giving’ is better than ‘receiving.’

You’ve probably heard that, or some version of it, many times in your life — but it’s the truth. It’s why we get more excited to watch a friend open a gift than we are to open a gift to us. Improving the lives of others improves us. Giving a random compliment to another person makes *us* feel good. Putting good out into the world brings good back.

All of us are going to die someday. Life is one adventure where no one gets out alive, and in the end you will either still be hungry, or you will be fulfilled, and every day you make choices that lead you one direction or the other.

I choose to be fulfilled. I choose love. I choose hope. I choose friends and fun and compliments and hugs and all the good things that make me feel warm whenever the darkest thoughts invade my mind. We’re in charge. We choose.

So, ask yourself, what choices are you making?

Damaged Doll is LIVE!

Title: Damaged Doll
Series: Beth Series #2
Author: Jennifer Bene
Genre: Dark Gothic Romantic Suspense
Release Date: July 12, 2022
“I’m too broken for love.”

After everything Beth has been through, all she wants is to feel normal.
To be normal.
But the weight of her past won’t let her go easily.

“Wanting her is wrong.”

All Jake wants is to be a hero.
To save as many as he can from the monsters of this world.
But when the monsters come for Beth Doherty…
he isn’t thinking like a hero.

Ripping her out of her life was bad enough.
Wanting her is worse.
But resisting her might just be impossible.




She felt like she was underwater. Floating in emptiness, with no ground to stretch her toes out for, and no air to swim toward.
It was endless… but not in a peaceful way. Someone had told her once that drowning was peaceful, that the brain gave a sense of euphoria as the lungs filled up with water, but Beth had never felt anything like that.
No calm. No peace.
Just a flickering memory of panic, and an absolute fear of the surface.
Survival was supposed to be an instinct, and she knew she should want to reach the surface. To breathe air again, to stop suffocating in the dark… but all she ever did was dive deeper. The deeper she went, the easier it was to block out the flickering glimpses of the things happening above. All the sounds, the textures, the sensations. The things that were so much worse than drowning.
But it got exhausting to stay down when her body wanted to be buoyant, wanted air, wanted freedom. A constant fight, a battle for depth whenever the water got rough and the waves turned the distant surface into chaos.
It was happening again.
That steady rise to the surface that brought back the panic, heart pounding in her ears as she became aware of the world outside the water. She wanted to dive down, to hide from the pull, but she was so fucking tired — and then there were the voices.
Muffled, blurred by the water for a while… until she got closer. As the light grew brighter, and she started to feel, she could hear them. Too many.
And him.
His voice always stood out the strongest, even though it was always calm. Cold and calm. Just like the water farther down, where she was safer… but she wasn’t safe up here.
Surfacing was always bad. Always.
If she reacted, if she made a sound, then they’d know she could. Then the storm on the surface would just get worse, it would be harder to swim down with the water too rough. Harder to hide.
Despite her best efforts to avoid it, the light got stronger, the world coming toward her, and she clenched her teeth tight to stay silent, to avoid the urge to scream or fight.
And then she broke the surface, instinctively pulling at the cable around her wrist, tethering her to the bed — but it was better to be connected to the bed. Out of the bed was always worse. Out of the bed meant there might be someone new, somewhere new, which always meant pain.
Although the surface was always painful, and she did her best to brace for it as her mind joined her body, as her eyes focused on the light and she felt the texture of sheets against her back and thick plastic around her wrist and –
Curtains. Pale purple.
A poster of a boy band.
She was home.
She kept forgetting that she was home, that she didn’t have to stay under anymore, didn’t have to fight the surface or feel the panic. Of course, knowing it didn’t keep her heart from racing, or her nails from digging into her palms as she pulled at the zip-tie around her wrist.

Trust is LIVE and Karissa is on the move! What is the pack gonna do?

One innocent decision ruined Karissa’s life, changed her forever,
but she’s determined to find normal again… no matter the risks.

Returning to the real world will require the pack to trust each other like never before,
because in a universe where Omegas are ruthlessly hunted,
one mistake can mean life or death.

It would be easier for the pack to keep her locked away, protected,
but the Alphas want a mate — not a prisoner.

And if the pack wants a future, they’ll have to fight their instincts,
and gamble it all for a chance at something more.

They’ve claimed her, sworn to protect her from any threat in the universe, but for an Omega planning to run, the most dangerous threat of all comes from one who already owns a piece of her soul.

The Alphas promise to protect her, to keep her safe, to tend her… but who will protect her from them?
