Can you tell us a little about yourself?
My name is Therese Beharrie and I live in Cape Town, South Africa. I got the news about my publishing contract with Harlequin/Mills&Boon the day before my twenty-fourth birthday in 2016, and my first book, The Tycoon’s Reluctant Cinderella, came out January 2017. I have an amazing husband – seriously, he’s the best – who’s supported me throughout my writing career, and we have two Husky fur-babies.
What do you enjoy about being an author?
Being a published author is a dream come true for me, so I love being able to live my dream! More specifically, I love writing about diverse characters who overcome challenges, and giving the hope of that to my readers through my romance novels.
What type of romance stories do you write? And why?
I write for Harlequin Romance/Mills&Boon Cherish, which is contemporary romance all about the rush of falling in love. That rush and the emotion of it have always been my favourite parts of reading romance, so it felt natural to write stories which specifically focus on that.
Favorite place in Africa? There’s no other option for me except my home, Cape Town, South Africa
Why do you think African romance authors and stories set on the continent are important?
The world is too diverse for only one kind of story to be told, and for our stories to be told, African romance authors need to tell them. I think that setting books in Africa and writing characters who are diverse (for example, who look like me) are important to help more people feel represented and included so that diversity can become a norm in the industry.
Do you think romance stories set in Africa & Africans vital to the publishing industry? If yes/no, why do you say so?
Absolutely yes, very much because of what I said in the previous answer. I also think that Africans contribute substantially to the romance market in terms of sales, so why shouldn’t we see ourselves in the books we support?
What traditional food do you love, that one can only find in Africa?
My father would often make umgqusho (samp and beans) for us when we were growing up, and I love it so much that to this day, married and out of the house as I am, I beg him to make it for me!

Bella Jeanisse lives for rock music. Addicted to concerts, Avenged Sevenfold, fictional rockers, and blasting music in the car, she can’t get enough.

Besides erotic rock star romances, Bella also writes about wild bikers, hot college men and more.
Everything about taking this girl back to my place felt wrong, but once I saw her in that sexy-ass dress and those six-inch heels, it was over. My dick wouldn’t stay down no matter what the fuck I thought about, and her and Shannon dry humping each other in the club sealed the deal. She looked at me with those fuck-me eyes, and I knew I was going balls deep into that pussy.
I went into the bathroom to take a hit of coke before I fucked her. A girl like that deserved godlike sex, and that was what she was going to get.
I knew she was probably dissecting my room, but I didn’t give a fuck. Once I came back, she wouldn’t have anything else to think about except coming on my cock. I shoved her back onto the bed and my cock damn near ripped through my jeans. Calm down, boy.
Running my hands up and down her smooth thighs, heat radiated from in between. I wanted to rip her panties off and rub her bud, but I was going to take my time. I wanted to torture her in the worst way possible.
She propped herself up on her elbows, and I slid my hands behind her, unzipping her dress. She lay back and shifted her hips up into the air, allowing me to slide the material right off and onto the floor. The lace bra she had on molded to her tits like a glove. I unclasped it with one swift motion, and her perfect mounds barely moved.
Her dark hair splayed across my pillows as I ran my tongue down the side of her neck. Her nipples stiffened as I rolled each peak between my fingers, and she let out a soft moan.
“I’m going to claim every inch of this body, Penelope,” I growled in her ear as my fingers made their way down to her mound. I ripped her panties off and ran my thumb over her clit then dipped a finger into her wetness. Bringing my hand up to my mouth, I smelled her essence and it drove me wild.
“You can have all of me, anywhere, anytime.”
I slid down to the side of the bed, yanking her with me, and ran my nose across her sweet, hairless pussy. I needed to feel, smell, and taste everything she had to offer. Her legs relaxed on either side of my shoulders and I slid two fingers inside her tight channel, stretching her as much as I could before I graced her with my tongue.
Flattening, rolling, twisting, sucking, lapping, my tongue was made for this pussy. Her hands grasped the back of my head and I stopped.
“Please, don’t stop,” she begged.
“Keep your hands to yourself and I won’t.” She sucked her teeth and grasped the sheets by her sides as I continued until her thighs constricted around my head. A rush of fluid released from her as her entire body heated and seized from my touch. I slid my jeans off, pumped my cock with my free hand, and sucked every last drop from her.
I flipped her over, and her legs were like Jell-O. “C’mon, baby girl, if you want to experience the best night of your life, you have to participate.”
She held herself up on all fours and as much as I wanted to slip right into her willing pussy, I ran my thumb against her asshole. Tensing with my touch, I reached around her hips and rubbed her clit again, distracting her enough to relax. I grabbed a bottle of lube from the nightstand and let a few drops run over my cock and in between her cheeks. Whether she’d done this before or not, I was getting in that firm, tight ass.
When she was nice and relaxed, I pushed the head of my cock at her entrance and slid in, as slow and deep as I could.

I wanted to hate her. For three years, Camilla withheld the fact that my brother had a son, Liam.
Then, Tony died without ever knowing his kid, and I was going to make sure Ms. Rose paid a price for her deceit. I also wanted Liam to be raised as a Burke. Our family’s legacy was one to carry on, so the terms were straightforward.
Live in my home.
Allow me to help raise Liam.
Oh, and agree to be my submissive.
In return, I agreed not to rip Camilla’s child away from her. I also offered them both financial security and a life of luxury. It seemed generous to me. It might’ve been simple, too, had she not reminded me of the lady in red. The one who haunted my dreams at night. Camilla’s hazel eyes were a mirror image, her sweetness more than an acquaintance to my subconscious.
I was a hacker by trade, and the internet was my best friend, sharing with me every secret I wished to unearth. I believed that until an unfathomable truth revealed itself in a different way.
Some secrets are never whispered, only sensed by the heart, and all along, my soul held the truth. It hid even from me the most important secret of them all.
The Terms ends in a cliffhanger. It contains explicit language and graphic sex, including aspects of BDSM. The second novel in the duet, The Terms: Part Two, will release June 1st.
I tried to keep my distance. I knew how much trouble Summer could cause me once she was, in her words, “legal.” She wouldn’t accept that being my best friend’s sister meant she was governed by another set of laws.
She was the forbidden fruit.
The “off-limits” trophy prize I couldn’t win.
The “don’t look and sure as hell don’t touch” female in my life.
But Summer pushed until I was backed into a corner. My hands and mouth had nowhere to go but on her. That was my story, and I was stickin’ to it.
I’d known Colton Graham all my life, and he was always a pest … until he wasn’t. That handsome face and masculine body he grew into became hard to look away from, and the more he matured and distanced himself from me, the more I wanted him close.
Since I’d grown up with a brother, I knew how college guys operated. Relationships were off the table, and fine by me; I only wanted two adventurous months with Colton. I knew he wouldn’t be my last, but I was hell-bent on making him my first. What was the harm in that? I could do casual … or so I thought.
Summer Trouble is a Ruby Romp Novella, meaning it contains insta-lust, along with an abundance of dirty talk and graphic sex. It can typically be enjoyed in one reading, so get ready for a fast-paced “get your panties wet” ride.
Ruby Rowe began writing in January of 2013 under the pen name Scarlet Wolfe,
releasing contemporary and young adult. She soon tried her hand at writing erotica
romance and fell in love with the genre.
The pen name Ruby Rowe came about in 2017 when she decided it best to keep her
racier books separate from her young adult romances. She’d like to branch out and
release straight erotica, however, she’s a romantic at heart, and believes it will be
difficult not to include romance in every story.
When not writing, Ruby reads naughty books about possessive, hot alpha males. She has
an addiction to Pinterest, pinning all the sensual photos she can find. She loves bacon,
coffee, and other flavors of ice cream besides vanilla. 😉 She hopes her writing will allow
her readers a reprieve from the real world, giving them an opportunity to live out their
