Warning – Here Be Monsters

I’m not a huge fan of “trigger warnings.” Something that might trigger one reader is innocuous to another. It’s down to readers to manage what does and does not cause them mental harm.

But authors have a responsibility to give readers the tools to do that job. I see content warnings like ingredients on food – content warnings allow readers to “read the label” – and it’s always a good thing to have an informed consumer.

With that in mind, this is a list of content warnings for my books, organized alphabetically within their series. All readers should know up front that my books are high heat. There is more than kissing. There’s more than kissing between people of the same and opposite genders. If kissing, or more than kissing, offends you as a reader, you are definitely not in the right place.

None of my characters exist in a vacuum. All have had previous relationships, good and bad. As with life, not all of these relationships have ended neatly. There is “other woman/man drama” in all of my books.

Some readers have asked for a “light to dark” scale for my books. I may not be the best judge of what is “dark” since age-play, daddykink, and power exchange are “dark” to some readers, but not to me. The least graphic of my books is Neon Blue and the most graphic/dealing with the most distressing subjects is the Bad Boys of Bevington series.

At least until the Omegaverse comes out …
