“Swoon. I’m loving this Ash Raven’s writing vibe and characters. This is a fantasy romance so there’s some new world rules you learn along the way, but it’s done at a good pace so you aren’t inundated with information nor are you left feeling like you missed something major. Augustine and Joanna are two people who feel like they have to shoulder the world’s responsibilities. Augustine feels the need to control his cravings and keep an eye on those of his monster colleagues. Joanna needs to feel worthy of everyone’s attention and runs herself ragged working the jobs of four people for peanuts of acknowledgement. They both escape into dreamscapes to survive the monotony of life with eachother. Then at one point, even that isn’t enough. This was an interesting take on The Sandman/Boogeyman character and I absolutely loved it.”

Augustine Ravenscroft-

Immortality is stale. For decades, I have been a paragon of self-control, never once allowing my sands to feast on the humans that surround me, tempt me.

Until her.

Every rule-abiding grain of sand in my body wants to swallow her whole, in her dreams and the mortal world. Her golden aura and honey scent drive me to the brink until I am breaking every order that has kept our monstrous community safe for centuries just to feel her joy and taste her arousal.

Joanna Cole-

My life is stagnating. I’m stuck in a rut of trying to please everyone, but this only leads to more work and sleepless nights. The library is the only place I find solace.

And see him.

It’s ridiculous to have a crush on the librarian I have never spoken to, but he is the man of my dreams. Until one night, the dark and lustful dreams turn into reality. He wants to claim me, and I want him to own me.

When chance encounters don’t add up and old fae magic threatens my life, my only option is to trust Augustine and the new world of secrets and deception he has shown me.

The Librarian of Souls is the first in a series of soft dark* interconnected standalones that feature Plus Size and LGBTQ+ characters finding their one.
