Rene Folsom, USA Today bestselling author of paranormal romance and erotica, lives in Florida with her husband and three kids. She has officially diagnosed herself with creative ADD and, if it weren't for her day job as a web programmer, she would have a million and one writing projects going at once. In addition to web design, she is also a graphic artist who loves to create custom book cover designs for indie authors. She is definitely an artist at heart and would love nothing more than to be elbow deep in clay during her waking hours.
Rene believes that all fiction is based on some form of reality--otherwise we would never have the inspiration or knowledge to dream up the realistic situations we portray with our words. She is proud to say that her personal experiences have been inspirational, though perhaps not always identical to that of her fictional characters. Where reality and fantasy diverge, however, must remain her little secret...

My name is Zhavia Starke, but I’m not known for my name.
I’ve always wanted to run from this life I’m forced to live… a life of slavery and oppression. I thought the annual selection would be my ticket out of this hell. So when another woman from my camp is chosen to be the lady of an elite house, I am forced to take matters into my own hands. In this harsh world, I have no allies. I am the only person I can depend on to pave my future—my freedom.
Being selected to an elite house has great responsibilities, yet I have never been motivated by status. Now won’t be an exception. Instead, my desire to escape has consumed my every waking moment, even when I’m assigned as a servant to one of the five royal houses.
My undoing comes in the form of five handsome and mysterious brothers hell-bent on thwarting my escape. The secrets and magic that hide behind House Kincaid prove to be an enticing challenge, which ends up putting major kinks in my plans for freedom.
Along with a mixture of precise timing and the hope of immunity, I will still find a way to get out… or die trying.
