When darkness falls, monsters come to play.


Heat. Claws. Teeth.
They rake over your body and draw you in.
There is no one here but you and them; only their breath on your neck and your pulse throbbing in your veins.
They creep from the shadows, from the darkest of dreams. They are here to take. Conquer. Claim.
You know what they are, and terror seizes your breath.
But you open yourself to the monsters.
And you let them in.

Ten exceedingly sexy short romances that will give you goosebumps in all the right places.

Reticent Desire Publications and the monster-loving readers’ group, Monsters, Demons & Knotting, Oh My! is thrilled to present this limited-edition anthology featuring steamy encounters with creatures both paranormal and alien.
Our guys may be monsters—but this Halloween, your heart won’t be all they’ll eat….

Shhhhh...It's the last week of September so as always we took a peek at Cass's spreadsheet to see what she is currently working on. She takes a lot of notes and has some odd nicknames for her unnamed books and series, but this is what we may or may not have figured out...

What do Aliens, Monsters and Demons have to do with things?

Contemporary Romance / RomCom:

  • She is nearly done turning her Cocky anthology submission into a standalone! It doesn't have a new name yet but she did choose the cover model for it.

  • And it looks like 1 more standalone is also underway. Something about a delivery service?


Young Adult:

  • I see a school series in its preliminary stages. I can't give details but it looks... quirky? 


Paranormal Romance:

  • 2 more books for the Crimson Moon Hideaway series are partially outlined, and it looks like she may co-write one with Author J.A. Nolan while she visits Cass for a month for the Books at the Beach, and Shameless conventions.

  • She also has book 1 in a new PNR series that starts off in someone else's world that appears to be 1/3 done. (I nearly fainted when I saw 'MTW' next to it. If that stands for Milly Taiden World, this might be the long-awaited PDA book Cass has been wanting to write!)

Urban Fantasy:

  • I just counted a whopping 4 detailed UF items on her spreadsheet! She nicknamed them 'witch and demon series', 'MG & Isha series', 'Hellhound series', and 'Hotel Dmonika'.

  • UPDATE: the 'witch and demon' series now officially has a name - Demon Broken, Send Help. And yes, I laughed when I saw the name. The cover art for book one is really pretty too. And it has it's own chibi art! It looks like the prequel is being finished and will be a freebie at the Books at the Beach convention, for a few hundred lucky attendees. I hope to score copy too, because you love me. RIGHT, CASS??



  • I see book notes that mention a serial killer but no details, and an action/adventure type series (??) but it looks like the very early stages of being hashed out.



  • Area 51 series?! It appears that she is turning that anthology submission into a series! That was such a cool story, and so many people liked that one.


Sci-Fi Romance:

  • She is currently finishing up the prequel for the Visits from the Intergalactic Matchmaker series! It looks like it may go live in time for the Books at the Beach convention. Fingers crossed! 

  • It also looks like she is finishing Her Horned Alien (same series) as an extended version for a solo book. Her Runed Alien is currently in the Alien Embrace anthology but she is slowly adding to it for when it becomes a solo book too.

  • I also see 2 other series' outlined, one nicknamed 'hairball' and one nicknamed 'AP' with Author Lucee Joie's name next to it. I see 3 little x's next to the 'AP' one. (I hope that means it's Sci-Fi Erotica or something. I can't wait to find out!)

  • UPDATE: She pushed ahead one called 'monsters' she was toying with and it's going to be a new series and book #1 will be "in a surprise anth in October" apparently! Omg! YES, PLEASE! She even has a little logo for it and I think it's adorable.


Erotica and Dark Romance:

  • She's been plotting! I see beginning notes on a series with Author Soferet Metucka. Oooh... that will be a good one. Soferet is a straight-up hardcore erotica author, so I am curious what the two of them together will come up with.



  • I see "dino anth 2022" in her notes. Dino anth??? Please be a dinosaur shifter... PLEASE be a dinosaur shifter...
