Iris Ann Hunter is a bestselling author of a darker kind of romance. A tortured romantic at heart, she writes a twisted, psychological blend of dark romance, erotica, and suspense.

I completely understand. As this is my first novel, I'm being cautious with timing for the next. For now, I'm saying summer for book two, but that's not set yet, and likely into next year for book three...but again, those are rough estimates that may change.

I tried switching between stories, to write Lovely Little Stray, but my mind wasn't willing or able to let my Beauty series go without being finished...and I had already started writing Tragic Beauty by the time I decided to extend Claimed. So going to finish the trilogy first, then work in Lovely...I'm dying to write that story!!!! I'm hoping for 2018! (less)

Haunted Beauty sneak peek & book sale!

Hey friends! Hope you all are well and safe during these crazy times. I’m reaching out as I recently posted a question in my FB group, asking readers if they wanted to be taunted with teasers of Haunted Beauty, OR if they considered that cruel and unusual punishment and preferred to wait for the release…and the vast majority responded with a resounding TEASE ME! So, in that spirit, I’m offering a
