BLURB:
For Melody Williams, her fantasy of a Daddy Dom has always been limited to the books she devours in secret. But when a trip to Black Light brings dominant men out of her imagination and into real life, Melody quickly falls for everything about this exciting new world, including a certain gorgeous lawyer on whom she has a very serious crush.

Kawan Park joined Black Light in the hopes of finding his perfect Little Girl. He never expected to meet her in the courtroom first. But once Melody is no longer off-limits as his client, he'll stop at nothing to make her his when all bets are off at the club.

Despite their instant connection, meddling friends and the stresses of life will threaten Melody and Kawan's happily-ever-after. Can the pair negotiate a bond that will work, or will Melody crumble under the stress of her newfound lifestyle and leave her dream Daddy undefended?



About Me:
Angel is a self-described bibliophile with a "kinky" bent who loves to write stories for the characters in her head. If she didn't get them out, she's pretty sure she'd go just a little crazy.
She is happily married, old enough to know better but still too young to care, and a big fan of happily-ever-afters, strong heroes and heroines, and sizzling chemistry.
She believes the world is a better place when there's a little magic in it.

My Amazon Free Month - Day 24 - Made It!

I realized that, as I leave for vacation this evening, I'm not going to be back home until August and I cannot think of a reason why I would order something from Amazon while I'm in another state! 

I have learned a LOT from this experiment, not the least is how much I allowed myself to become dependent on Amazon, both as a purchaser and as an author - and sometimes to my own detriment! I found cheaper deals on items better suited to my needs, I was able to easily buy ebooks from places other than Amazon and reward wide authors by making wide purchases, and I honestly feel really good about opening up other avenues of shopping for myself. 

Amazon is not the end all, be all, even though when I started this month it kind of felt that way. 

I think this month has definitely changed how I'm going to be shopping in the future. 

Going forward, hitting up Google's search bar rather than Amazon's is definitely going to be my first step rather than my second when I need something specific. 

I've decided to keep my Kobo. I'm making as many book purchases as I from websites other than Amazon or Walmart, but when it comes down to those two being the options I'll probably go with the Kobo for now, because I want wide authors to know that it's WORTH being wide.

However, I'm definitely keeping my KU subscription. It allows me to discover new authors and read a lot more books than I could actually afford to buy. Even with my reading curtailed by a lack of time, I think it's still worth it to have KU for when I do have time to binge read. I'm a speed reader, so if I have time and the books are short, I can get through multiple in one day =P I am also all about supporting authors in general, including those who are in KU whom I love. The current KU system is rife with scammers and thieves, so I like to try and help the honest KU authors whose books I enjoy get their fair share of the monthly pie. Especially since, honestly, if they all went wide, I would have to make some hard choices about purchases.

My Prime account renewed in May so I have almost a year to decide if I'm going to keep it or not. I'm going to track how often I actually use it - for both packages and video rentals - now that I'm not actually relying on Amazon for everything anymore and see if it's worth renewing in May 2020. I have a suspicion that it will not be, but I want to make sure and obviously I have plenty of time to do so since I paid for the annual subscription back in May. 

So that's my no-Amazon for a month experiment... I'll do another update at the end of August and we'll see how well I've managed to keep up my changes! =P 

Stay Sassy and I hope everyone is having a fab summer!

It's time for a forbidden fantasy!


It's time for a forbidden fantasy!
Forbidden Fantasy House by Golden Angel writing as Sinistre Ange is NOW AVAILABLE!




Or read it #FREE with KindleUnlimited!!!

Embarrassed by her fantasies, Elena can't admit what she needs to her boyfriend Lance. No matter how many ways he lights up her body with pleasure and pain, she just can't bring herself to share that much with him, and eventually their relationship crumbles under the strain. In the aftermath of their breakup, Elena gathers the courage to visit the Forbidden Fantasy House where confessing her desires to a complete stranger is far easier than she imagines. And the House is more than happy to provide. But when Lance spots Elena in the one place he never expected to see her, he can't resist finding out exactly what it was his ex-girlfriend didn't trust him to give her. As Lance investigates Elena's innermost secret, things at the House spin wildly out of control. And Elena, who is desperate to be taken hard and fast by a man who won't give in to her pleas to stop, has only one more choice to make before she no longer has any choices at all.

PROMOTIONAL NOTE: Forbidden Fantasy House is an erotic story with elements of non-con. If you do not like intense sexuality or are triggered by dubious and/or missing consent, please do not read this book!



About Sinistre Ange
Sinistre Ange is the alter ego of Golden Angel and explores some of the darker sides of erotica - kink, fetish, supernatural creatures, breeding fantasies, etc. You might find some love in these books, but they are not necessarily romances; the focus is on the fantasy and the physical interactions between characters.

My Amazon Free Month - Day 19 - Barnes & Noble

The other day I happened to be doing a Harry Potter walk where there was a Barnes and Noble actual store. 

Since I'm having an Amazon free month and my baby girl is too smart for her own good and is already getting tired of a lot of the books we have for her, I stopped in. Ended up leaving with about seven new books for her =P Three of which I got off the sale bin at the very front of the store - and since I renewed my Barnes and Noble membership they were even cheaper!

I've decided I definitely like buying kids books at the store better than online. I can actually read through them. Check out the story, see if it's something I think she'll pay attention to or if it's too old for her, and especially check out the 'touch and feel' books to see if they're things she'll actually want to touch and feel. Because the one I ordered online sounded a lot better than it ended up being. Flipping through them in person, I was able to pick out one I knew she'd have fun with. 

It was kind of fun being back in a brick and mortar book store. I haven't been in one in a while. 

I swung by the romance section to see if they had me (They didn't... was not surprised lol), walked through the bargain books, picked up and put down more books than I can recall, and walked out with a satisfyingly heavy bag. 

Then they sent me a 30% off coupon for signing up for the (free) kids program (earn points on kids books for future discounts on kids books... uh, yes please!) and I'm going to be back in that area today so it's likely I'll stop in again. 

In other news, the shelves I ordered from Target for the convention next week are way too big. That's another thing I'm going to have to check on in person... fortunately the Target near me is very close to the Barnes and Noble store =P So it should be productive day!

I've continued to buy books off of Smashwords but I haven't tried any of the other bookstores yet. I really should check out Eden Books and Bookstrand. And also get MY books uploaded to Eden books. 

So much to do, so little time!

But we're more than halfway through my Amazon Free Month and I'm feeling pretty good about it!

My Amazon Free Month - Day 16 - The Prime Resistance

Prime Day was successfully resisted.

I didn't even look at the sales.

And when I heard about the protests going on, by Amazon workers, I felt even better about my decision.

What I DID do was check out Target's deals. It was kind of fun knowing they were going up against the big Zon's biggest day and helping them out, while also buying some things that I wanted / needed. Especially because, while Target has some problems (as any big company does) I keep seeing lots of great things that they're doing, from their teacher discounts to their breastfeeding policies / nursing rooms. I feel like every time I've seen their name in the news lately, it's for something positive that I support.

It made me wish that they sold e-books actually.

However, they did have a buy 2 get 1 free sale on their regular books! I got the third illustrated Harry Potter book, pre-ordered the fourth, and got the illustrated Fantastic Beasts book for free =) WOOT! Not only that, but the books were cheaper at Target ($25.99) than they were on Amazon ($29.99). So double win for me.

I also picked up two super tankinis that were on sale, some cheap bubble wrap that I need for shipping some delicate items, and a folding shelving unit that I'm *hoping* I'll be able to use at Literary Love: Authors Rock Savannah next weekend. I saw another author with shelves on her table at RomCon and it made me very jealous about how much space it saved her lol.

One moment of drama today - I had forgotten about pre-orders.

Lexie Blake's latest Bliss re-release came out today. She's a one-click author for me and I pre-order her books as soon as they go up. So when I opened up my Kindle this morning and saw Once Upon A Time in Bliss I was like CRAP! I'd forgotten about pre-orders.

But I did the work. Found Once Upon a Time in Bliss on Smashwords, ordered it there, and returned it on Amazon. I won't lie, for a brief moment I considered just letting the Amazon order stand... but I'm trying to do this right! It would have been easier and more convenient to just let it go, sure, but it also only took me a few minutes to return the book and buy it from Smashwords. It wasn't exactly a big inconvenience.

I also went through and canceled my other pre-orders and added them to my wishlist instead. I don't think I'm going to be totally Amazon-free after this month, but I'm going to do my best to keep up most of it. I'll use Amazon when it really does have a great deal, but otherwise... I'm going to keep trying to encourage wide authors to remain wide by purchasing their books from other platforms!

My Amazon Free Month - Day 13 - The Prime Test

One of the first things I've heard when I tell people that I'm having an Amazon-free month, over and over, is the horrified - "But Prime day is this month!"

True confession: I don't keep track of when Prime day is.

My usual prime day is someone telling me a few days beforehand and me going "oh..." and then trying to think of all the things that I might want to buy. I don't save up for it or wait for it, I tend to buy things as I need them, but once I know it's coming I try to think of things I might want / need in the future that I should just go ahead and buy now. There's usually a few things, but I don't go crazy with the spending usually. Still, I always end up buying something.

Because it's Prime Day.

Amazon is testing me extra hard this year with this Kindle deal.



However - I've found a replacement.

Knowing that I'm doing an Amazon-free month, someone was nice enough to tell me that Target is also having "Prime Days" on July 15th and 16th! I've already been going through their website and adding things to my 'favorites' - which is basically their version of a wishlist and also something that I didn't know they had. It's definitely going to make things a lot easier on me.

I need some new towels. And a new bathmat. Probably would have bought them on prime day this year but instead... Target Day!

Apparently Red Card users also get an additional 5% off everything. I'm currently considering opening a new credit card lol.

Things are definitely getting a little bit easier each day. I still have to remind myself not to sign into Amazon every morning, but I no longer pull up the page before I remember that I'm not immediately signing in. I still use my Kindle every day, but I'm on Smashwords a lot more often than I used to be, seeing if they whatever I'm looking for. So far I haven't bought any books this month, I've just been using my Kindle Unlimited subscription, but I also read a lot less than I used to.

I did try to pre-order an anthology that Lexi Blake and Sierra Cartwright are a part of off of Kobo but for some reason couldn't get the pre-order to work =( I'm still not sure why. I'm going to wait until release day and try to order it then - or maybe see if it's up on Smashwords by then. I'll use the Kobo ordering system if I have to though.

So that's where I'm at! Looking forward to seeing what a Target Day is like =)
