About this author

CJ Roberts is an independent writer. She favors dark and erotic stories with taboo twists and her work has been called both sexy and disturbing in the same sentence.

She was born and raised in Southern California. Following high school, she joined the U.S. Air Force in 1998, served ten years and traveled the world. Her favorite part of traveling is seeking out the seedy underbelly of the city.

She is married to an amazing and talented man who never stops impressing her; they have one beautiful daughter.

Her debut novel, Captive in the Dark (The Dark Duet, Book 1), is available in ebook and paperback. And will be followed up with Seduced in the Dark (The Dark Duet, Book 2) in September of 2012.

She writes short stories under the name Jennife...more

Leslie Hey, just wanted to let you know that your Dark Duet series is my absolute favorite. I've read a lot of books since and I still can't find anything that can come close to comparing. Finally convinced my mom to read them :) she just finished the first one and loved it. You're amazing!

Angela Tan Thanks for adding, CJ! Would you mind reading the reviews I've written for Captive in the Dark [https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...] and Epilogue [https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...]?

I seriously have no words to describe the love I have for this trilogy. Never wished so badly before for fictional characters to be real.
Your series is the one that makes people want to pick up its sequel right away! ASAP!
Cheers. And Happy Thanksgiving :)


JessBess3800 Ms. Roberts thank you so much for the add. Your series is by far the best I have read in a very long time and I look forward to seeing more from you.

I don't know, I still think he kept a lot of his edge. It's just now it's all consensual which is a good thing. I liked that we got to see his vulnerable side, his fear of losing Livvie, etc. This made me see him as human with feelings, not the monster he was in Captive in the Dark.

Anyway, Bravo! I loved the entire series. It was very dark and intense but captivating for sure.

It's been interesting for sure. Some are saying Epi is their fave because Caleb is so different. Others couldn't get behind it for the same reason. Strangely, I think BOTH are true.


Krissy P (Kris) This is a fantastic well-written series. I loved Caleb's POV. I have to say, I was not a fan of him at all until Epilogue. I had mixed feelings of hate and sympathy where he is concerned but I think his POV helped me love him in the end.


Ms. MiLo Thank you for Caleb's POV. I am even more inlove w/him :D


Mariℓina Thank you again for the amazing book you gave us.. It was all that i hoped for and a little bit more.. I'm so happy that you delayed it to make it perfect.. and i really loved Caleb's new witty side..

Mercy Cortez Hi C.J.

I just wanted to thank you, I have read books that claim to be like yours but they don't have the same dynamic that you wrote for Caleb and Livvie. The only book to ever come close was Held by Kimberley A. Bettes and that is in no way a love story and so I will leave the tortured love to you.

Your series is so original and your writing is superb; you inspire me as a writer and I think you should be so proud of yourself.

Thank you for taking your time and speaking to fans (AKA Calebs Kittens) it means the world.

Please never stop writing; because I for one will never stop reading what you have to write.

Motherofpearl I've been reading many erotic romance books and I just want to say your books (Dark Duet series) are still my number one! Your writing style still my favorite writing style. I think most writers do not give enough attention to the coherence of the story and your Dark Duet series is so important because there is coherence in the story which makes it look like real. Coherence and balances are two main important features which make a good story better. Without these, even though you have a good starting point, the book becomes unreal, ridiculous and meaningless.

So, I want to thank you for your writing style. :)


♔Beth♔ XoXo I had this question for a while now, livvie when she chose the name Sophia Cole. The last name was it because of Caleb ?! His real name was James Cole, does she know that he's Vladek’s son ?!

It will be on Amazon, Smashwords, and B&N on the 15th. The rest of the channels will have to aggregate from Smashwords and can a while. :/ The good news is, you can use the epub from Smashwords to read on your ipad etc.

Mariℓina It would be perfect if the Epilogue turned out to be more than 100 pages. I actualy live with that hope.. so even though i really, really, really want it like right now, i don't mind if it takes a while. Just KEEP WRITING..

Jxxx  ♥ Pink Lady ♥ Thanks for the friendship! :) I finished your books, CITD & SITD last week and still find myself thinking about them. The characters and the story draw you in; it is dark, gritty and uncomfortable but just so fabulously written. I love stories that make you feel strong emotions and yours certainly did that. Sorry to gush! lol, but it's the truth! I can't wait to read the Epilogue and the Dark Duet Spin off! I'm sure we're all in for another treat! :)
