Indebted: A Sin from Ashes:

This story is NOT your standard Happily Ever After. It contains various supernatural beings, scenes of extreme violence, elements of the BDSM lifestyle, group sex, dubious consent, revenge, unrequited love, and a LOT of profanity. It is not for the Prudish, Squeamish, or Those easily offended by a woman who owns her sexuality. If you pla

***Contains graphic sex, violence, and language. Not for young readers***

***Cassandra Delorie #NerdGirlLola’s Review***

OH MY GOD!!! This book is the s**t!!! I am in love with this book!!! I’m so used to reading books where the dominant is a guy, but Artisyn is so bad ass, I really couldn’t see her as a sub. She commands such a presence; I’m not surprised that pretty much all of the men in the book are willing to lick her boots.

There's not a correct word to describe Indebted, it's mind-blowing. Khai's characters are gorgeous in so many different ways, their strength, weaknesses, and turmoils comes out of each and everyone of them perfectly. This story line runs smooth, with just a enough sexual battle to leave you fully sedated. If your looking for a smooth running story, here it is. ...more

If you don't like to read about violence, blood and sex (sometimes at the same time), this series isn't for you. It contains extremely graphic content.

There is a tension between Artisyn and Theodore and you soon find out why, he quickly becomes the character that you love to hate... though there may be more to the story. Her anger and distrust are completely understandable, once you learn the history.
Artisyn is without a doubt the main character, she is awesome. Tough and sexy, she isn't going

Khai L.

I can’t express my shock and awe for both books. Simply amazing. Khai pushed to the limit and more. I was enthralled with the characters, story, and well, the whole package.

I completely fell in love with Artisyn. By far, my favorite main character I have read. Which I have read more books than most people do in a decade. If there was one female that made me question my gender attraction, it would be her. Tingles in your tummy. I get why all men love her. Artisyn and her life she has lived is eno

I was very privileged to Beta read this story. OMG is the first thing that comes to mind. Artisyn is one lucky woman to have not one but four men at her beckon call. When Artisyn gets the call from Theodore that she needs to come see him, you know there is some type of "past" between them. When she gets to the compound, she gets a "surpise" as to what Theodore wants and who he has waiting to meet her. Abel, Niall, Dionysos and Kheleb shift changers that were gonna work with her on this task. Dam ...more

This was an amazing read by a debut author chalked full of mystery, intrigue, BSDM, supernatural beings, passion and ultimately love. If you love paranormal books, then this one will be right up your alley! I won't go into any details since you can read the blurb and I don't want to give away anything. You just have to read it, it will be well worth your time.

I was given a gift copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. How do you piece yourself back together after having endured a terrible event? How do you continue to live when you feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders? This is how Artysn has felt for the past few years of her life. When she is called in to repay a debt she has one goal in mind get in get out and get GONE. Like everything else in life however fate has a different plan for her. She is teamed up with a group ...more

If you yearn to leave your normal day to day and delve into a world where Sensuality, Sex, Love, Conspiracies, Pain & Pleasure all co-exist in the harmony of a world where anything is possible, then grab the lube and dive on in!!

I could describe it as "Harry Potter Lost His Cherry" or "Pippy Longstockings as a Dominatrix" but there's soo much more!!! Follow Artisyn's adventures within(herself) and throughout her world as the smoldering embers of love she'd thought were long extinguished are fann

What a HOT wild ride! I love how this book has a really strong woman Artisyn Daniels as the main character. Artisyn gets called back by Theodore to help with a case that only she can do. Along the way Artisyn gets paired up with four hot men to be on her 'team testosterone' as she refers to them as. She never thought she would ever get the feelings that she does for these four men and is not sure how to really deal wth the feelings that keep building every day. In the end they kick butt and ever ...more

Artisyn is thrusted back into a world she tried in vain to forget.Now she is on the path to catch a killer. To help her along are four incredibly sexy beings.

This book was different from a lot I have read, however it was well written with characters who make you feel their emotions. A group of paranormal investigators who are of the supernatural world band together to help Artisyn, and to take down a murderer.

Team Testosterone also helps Artisyn heal the tragedy she has went thru and has been dealing with for years. They allow her to find herself again.

Great job by the author keeping the book interesting and did I mention, Hot??

I will not waste your time by posting spoilers or telling you the same thing that others have already said about this book. I will get straight to the point. Indebted: A sin from Ashes is a great read. It grabs your attention from the beginning and holds it throughout the book. The action in this read is amazing! The story and characters are well written and well developed. Bayne did a wonderful job with this book. I look forward to reading more from this author and I recommend this be added to ...more

This was an awesome book! I became so engrossed in the story, I love that there are so many different types of paranormal creatures who all co-exist with each other and I love the fact that it was four men submitting to a female dominant which was really hot! The reveal of the bad guy towards the end of the book totally shocked me! I was so not expecting that. The ending is a bit of cliffhanger which makes me excited to read the next book in the series.

The story of Artisyn and Theodore. This book is very graphic and intended for adult reading only. It was very intense and all about the supernatural. Kept you wanting to read more and more to finish the story and see the outcome.

Sexy, erotic and full of suspense

Wow! Get your fan ready as the h/H's will leave you hot and bothered. Not only that but it's also got a great storyline of suspense to keep you on your toes.
The alpha men are sexy and the heroine is full of surprises and a major alpha female.
I don't typically read BDSM but this one kept my attention. I really enjoyed those sexy smoking scenes.
This novel has paranormal characters, action, suspense, sexy hot alpha males and female, and touches of romance mixed a

Blowed Me Away

This is the hottest paranormal book that I have ever read. It had some aspects to it that I really wasn't expecting but was an awesome surprise. It did have an dark element to it so it's not for the faint of heart . I loved the rawness of it, the frankness, I'm not a size 2 or ashamed of my body part of it. Oh hell, I just loved the whole freaking thing. This book so rocked and I can't read to read the next one. A must read.
It was ok. The Amazon page mentions the book was recently (2015) edited, but it still has a long way to go. If you can get over missing words, incorrect punctuation, and switching from present to past tense all the time, go for it. Luckily for me it was a freebie.

Not my typical choice of book, have never been a big fan of special ops forces or BDSM. I had the met the author and adored her, so I was determined to read the book anyway. I was not disappointed, this book drew me in and kept me going back for more. I am now a big fan of Artisyn and need more.

Not for me

It was good. Not what I was hoping for. The back in forth in the chapter of POV of characters got confusing who was talking or thinking.

Growing up in a small town, Khai L. Bayne always had an over active imagination. The only girl in a family with two boys, many of her nights (and some days), were spent finding creative ways to pass the time. Reading soon found its way as the main outlet for the young Khai, but later that love spread to other avenues, such as poetry, and music.
