Token Huntress:
Being born a hunter, Esmore has been raised with one purpose: to hunt and kill the vampire race that destroyed the world as it was known. At eighteen, Esmore’s a Token Huntress in her Guild, surpassing her mentor’s expectations of her, despite having no magical ability, like all hunters before her.

During a raid in the once iconic San Fransisco, Esmore’s team is ambushed, and a mysterious vampire that she is drawn to captures and takes her to the Vampire Council as a prisoner. Her captor—Chase, a lethal, immortal, sexy, and charming vampire who will stop at nothing to claim her as his familiar.

While in captivity, Esmore learns information that makes her question everything she’s been taught.

Now in the year 2341, Esmore fights for her survival. But who exactly is she fighting against? The very people who nurtured her or the evil she’s supposed to hate?
Dark. Romantic. Dangerous. Your newest obsession awaits…

The Shadow Minds Journal: 

Blood. Lust. War. All rules are fair in the Underworld and killing is just for fun.
In the year 2986, rebirthed Vivian Lair is a prized Guardian contracted to uphold the treaty between angels and demons in the city of Shabeah.

Shifting into seven demons are the perks of the job, taking orders and constant servaliance from Demon Lord, Haymen—not so much. Involving herself with the Angel of War, Gabe? That was probably a mistake as well.

When a trail of bodies begin to appear at an orphanage on the outskirts of the city, Vivian must use her detective skills and hunt those who orchestrated the attacks. Her discovery could lead to her own undoing, and, just maybe, the secrets behind the Shadow Minds Journal.
Will Vivian surive the fame, riches and games all while appeasing the seven demons she’s contracted to?

My Escort:

We all have our secrets. Mine is that I hired a male escort to show up my boss. Problem is, I actually like him.

Clover is determined to become the next big travel columnist. The only problem is her merciless boss, Debra Coorman, who refuses to let her step up the corporate ladder. When an opportunity presents itself, Clover will do anything to make the most of it. Including dialing the number on a sheik silver plated business card she swore she’d never need.

Hiring a male escort, Damon, to play the role of ‘doting boyfriend’ was meant to be easy. A simple transaction that would begin and end with one evening—until he takes an unusual interest in Clover as his new play thing. The games begin as Clover is reminded of a very different focus in life, one where sweet talk, seduction and desire rule, and the only think being kept down, is her body against the bed. Will it just end at just one night?

‘No one said I had to play by the rules. But no one added I might’ve bitten off more then I can chew.’

My Escort is the first in a contemporary sweet romance series set in the bright lights of Manhattan, New York.

Pre-Order Mad Hatter Vampire Prince: 


Kyran Klaus is the prince of Grand Klaus, his reputation honoring him the title of the Mad Hatter Vampire Prince. Crazy, deadly, lustful, and utterly bored with life.

Sasha Pierce is one of a kind. Having been experimented on by her mother as a child, she’s become a human weapon who’s looking for answers beyond the walls where her kind aren’t enslaved to vampires.

When the Mad Hatter Prince takes a sudden interest in Sasha and her work, she scarcely begins to cover her tracks and hide her secrets. What she doesn’t anticipate is being a pawn in his most sinister performance yet.

Disturbingly Wicked! This novella is not for the fainthearted. Lust, Gore, Wit, and Malicious Humor. Prepare to be deliciously tainted.

Interview With Kia:
  1. Can you tell us a little about your books?
Ranging from Young Adult, Contemporary Romance, Erotica to my more recent work of Paranormal Romance, Dystopian and Dark Fantasy. My best selling series is Token Huntress, a vampire romance and The Shadow Minds Journal, an urban dark fantasy angel and demons romance. My new release, Mad Hatter Vampire Prince is a prequel novella based on the Token Huntress series, due for release October 5th.

  1. What inspires you to write?
I started writing when I was an angsty teen at fifteen. I found it really shaped me in being able to escape into  a different realty and it offered to be my first serious goal and project and it’s shaped me into the woman I am today ever since. I love telling the stories in my character voices and manifesting their world according to how they describe it to me. It’s a really amazing job and it just fulfils me being able to write. So anything inspires me really, if it has some relevance to my current project or maybe the spark of a new one.

  1. How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
To date, I’ve written fifteen books, Mad Hatter Vampire Prince being book fifteen. I love all of them for different reasons. So far my favourite character to have written is Vivian Lair. She can shift into seven different demons so I find her character delightfully wicked but complex as she is influenced by their personalities as well. It’s a challenge to write and I love it.

  1. Do you have a special time to write or how is your day structured?
Currently I’m focusing on rebranding my books. So not as much time to write as I focus on marketing instead. However, usually I would have what I call ‘block out’ days or ‘bat cave’ weeks. Where I literally am in my room or office for the entire day, typing away and writing 10-15k words. I usually write massive chunks of my books during one big week because it flows that way and when I’m tired I’ll find myself focusing on something else so I can take minor break.
  1. If someone who hasn't read any of your books yet, which one would you suggest they read first?
Depending on what genre’s their favourite. If they like Paranormal Romance I would suggest Token Huntress. If they prefer something a little darker and edgier then I would suggest The Shadow Minds Journal.
  1. If you could be friends with one of your characters, which one would you choose?
Ooof what a question! I absolutely love this! Hmm if I could be friends with one of them it would be either Vivian Lair because she’s such a bold and kick-ass give’s no damn character OR Chase from Token Huntress because he’s so goofy, sexy and fun!
  1. If your fairy godmother waved her wand and whisked you away to the location of your choice, which place would you choose.
Ooh this is an interesting one! If in the real world, right now I’d love to travel through Japan. It’s always been a dream of mine. If in one of my fantasy worlds... I’d have to say maybe Shabeah, the city in The Shadow Minds Journal, but ONLY if I am a supernatural with power so I can protect myself as well. If I went in as a human, it wouldn’t be so pretty for me haha
  1. What writing projects are you currently working on?
I’m currently focusing on the fourth book, Token Darkness in the Token Huntress series.
