Donya Lynne is the author of the award winning All the King's Men Series and a member of Romance Writers of America. Making her home in a wooded suburb north of Indianapolis with her husband, Donya has lived in Indiana most of her life and knew at a young age that she was destined to be a writer. She started writing poetry in grade school and won her first short story contest in fourth grade. In junior high, she began writing romantic stories for her friends, and by her sophomore year, they had dubbed her Most Likely to Become a Romance Novelist. In 2012, she made that dream come true by publishing her first two novels and two novellas. Her work has earned her two IPPYs, one gold and one silver, as well as two eLit Awards, also one gold and ...more

He's a badass vampire with a wicked sense of humor and an I-own-the-world attitude that only Sam can temper. She doesn't take shit from anyone, not even Micah, which is something Micah isn't used to. He's used to everyone getting out of his way when he's in a bad mood and asking "how high?" when he snaps his fingers and commands them to "jump!" But Sam takes none of that. She's not afraid to get in his face, jab him in the sternum, and tell him to get off his high horse (her language can be a lot more colorful than that, though). And Micah adores her for that. They're the perfect couple. (less)

Hi, Renee. Sorry for the delay in answering. Goodreads isn't great for notifying me when I have questions, and I rarely visit the site.

I'm thrilled to hear you like the AKM books. :) Regarding BLACK, the book is due out later this summer. The reason for the delay is that I was personally invited last October to participate in the launch of a new Kindle World (Aleatha Romig's Infidelity World), which was an incredible opportunity I would have been foolish to decline. So, I had to modify my production schedule to accommodate the new story, which did end up pushing back the release date for BLACK. Hopefully, you follow me on Facebook, follow my Amazon Author Page, or subscribe to my newsletter. That way you won't miss any updates or the announcement of the release date once I'm ready to unveil that. My plan is to release 3 new AKM books in the next year and a half. A new character named Memnon is chomping at the bit for his story, and Sev & Ari have a followup that's partially written, as well.

Thank you again for being a reader! Stay in touch! <3

So...you're not a fan of Fifty Shades of Grey. That's cool. I get it. In a way, I'm right there with you. Here's the thing, though. If you don't like Fifty, you don't need to be rude about it.

I rarely post about Fifty Shades of  Grey. I wasn't a ginormous fan of the books. I didn't hate them, but I didn't love them, either. If I had been the developmental editor on these books, I would have po... Read more of this blog post »

“Whereas males of both species played the field in similar ways, a human marriage had nothing on a vampire mating. A marriage could be dissolved by a judge with a little slip of paper. A marriage could be ended in a blink if the humans got tired of each other or fell out of love. With vampires, there was no dissolving a mating. A mated pair didn't grow tired of one another, and they certainly didn't fall out of love. When two vampires mated, a link formed to tether them to one another on a level that transcended the physical plane and fused them into one on a spiritual and emotional level, which was why the loss of a mate left a male in a state of despair if it didn't kill him outright. A mating was for life and plainly demonstrated the vampire race's link to the animal kingdom.”
Donya Lynne, Rebel Obsession

“Miriam woke up to find Io sitting on the floor next to her. His gaze brightened and he smiled. "How do you feel?" he said. He helped her sit up. "Like shit." She groaned. "Don't get me wrong, I feel better than I did, but damn, this shit sucks." Who the hell had let in the army of Terminators to play Rock 'Em Sock 'Em inside her body? Io chuckled at her surprisingly unfeminine manner of speaking and sat down beside her. "I gave you a potent detox with my venom. I needed to get the cobalt out of your system." "Ah, I see." She leaned her face into her hands. "Great. Just great. I don't know whether to thank you or hit you." How did she always seem to put her worst face forward around this guy? The one male she wanted to impress and all she did was behave like a strung-out junkie around him. The vampire version of Amy Winehouse. How could he not be impressed? Uh-huh, right.”
Donya Lynne, Rebel Obsession

“I'm not stupid, Malek," he said softly. "I know I'm in trouble. Big trouble. Jackson…" He closed his eyes and took a heavy breath before continuing. "Mating Jackson has awakened everything I felt for Kat after she died. It's like I'm feeling it all over again." He slowly swirled his drink, making the ice clink the sides of the glass. "And he doesn't love me. He never did. I can hear his thoughts and know there's someone else. I see what they do with one another, but there's nothing I can do to stop him, and yet I can't walk away." He lifted his gaze to Malek's and saw complete and total understanding reflected back at him. Like any other male of their species, Malek knew Micah was between the proverbial rock and a hard place. Micah looked back down into his glass. "It's just a matter of time, Malek." A matter of time before his mental faculties short-circuited and tossed him like a rag doll into suffering so intense he'd be lucky to remember his own name when the end came. Malek's”
