August 2023: Hot Blooded

  • 🔥 Are you ready for a taste of the DARK SIDE of queer fiction?

    We know you’ve been eagerly awaiting the announcement of the first titles for our new adult quarterly subscription, otherwise known as R.A.D. (Rainbow After Dark), so without further ado… The theme for the first-ever RAD crate is…


    We’ve hand-selected TWO
    very special books to feed all of your adult cravings, featuring sexy and dark relationships between humans and vampires! These editions are going to be stunning!

  • Over the same background is the original cover of Lord of Eternal Night alongside the official summary.

    🔥 Our first book is Lord of Eternal Night by Ben Alderson!

    A dark tale about a witch who has only one meaning in life: to break the curse and save his coven, and the creature he is prophesied to kill. Sent to the creature’s castle, Jak must get close enough to land the final blow, but not all is as it seems, and emotions war as new feelings are uncovered. For what is more dangerous than hate? Lust.

    CW: death, blood, violence, toxic relationships, murder, loss of family members, abuse, manipulation, anger, grief/grieving, depression, profanity, explicit sex

  • Over the same background is the original cover of Contract Bound alongside the official summary.

    🔥 Our second book is Contract Bound by Elle Mae!

    A lush tale about a vampire hunter contracted to protect the future leader of those she has sworn to hate, and the unexpected bond that forms between them. Vampires killed Silvia’s family, and she signed her life away to The Order to satisfy her lust for revenge. But nothing is black and white, especially not Keir, and the undeniable chemistry that sprouts up between them.
