Lite Heart: He's the guy I'm supposed to avoid. I have to stop this. It can't happen. And yet…there is something about him that draws me in—a hint of vulnerability, a flash of attraction, a spark that might burn.

About A.C. James

Hey there! I'm A.C. James, a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author addicted to crafting tales of paranormal romance and steamy erotica for adult readers. According to Fiction DB, I've written 43 books, but they're probably counting anthologies and box sets. I have two main series, and you can check out past reviews on Goodreads.

I'm slowly relaunching my books after getting rights back from a small publishing company. I write paranormal romance, sci-fi romance, and contemporary romance. From light-hearted to dark, second chances never tasted so good. If you're looking for books about the underdog, redemption, and second chances, I've got you covered. 

As with all things A.C. James, expect plenty of spice, and no closed doors, so prepare for things to get very hot under the collar!

Weekly Erotic Shorts & Craved by the Alpha will be updated once a week!

“I love these books! I am a huge fan of Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress series, Darlynda Jones and her Charley Davidson books with Reyes Farrow, and the Sylvia Day (S.J. Day) marked series with Cain and Abel. My newest favorite is Kresley Cole’s Arcana series featuring Evie, Death, and Jack. And I can see Holly and Arie also embarking on such a butt-kicking awesome, light over darkness, against all odds exploit, along with major hot sex. Please continue with the two since they have already captured our hearts! I listen to all the above series over and over along with Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs, and Nalini Singh as I work. Please continue!!”-Robin
