Announcement: Refraction, by R. Phoenix

RefractionQSFer R. Phoenix has a new paranormal MM romance book out:

Noah is still struggling to come to terms with his unwanted new life as one of the undead, and Khaz’s attempts to reach his childe seem doomed to fail. Reese risked it all to save his human lover, Ash, but he finds that his claim of pack leader might not keep him from losing everything. Desperate times call for desperate measures, and together, Reese and Noah set off on a mission to find Noah’s old rebel group to help them turn the tables against the status quo that threatens them all.


In a world ruled by supernatural beings whose moral compasses are all but broken, humans struggle to survive in the face of despair, cruelty, and hate. Through it all, there’s hope for more — hope, mercy, and love. Can the balance ever be tipped in their favor?

Ripples in the Status Quo Book Six

Please note that the RISQ world has little place for humanity, and as a result, content in these works may contain graphic scenes of depravity, cruelty, and violence–sexual or otherwise–that could be offensive and potentially triggering to some readers.

“Why are you here?” Leo asked, his voice quiet. He didn’t look at Khaz as he spoke, instead gazing out over the neighborhood beyond the long driveway of Reese’s home.
Khaz smirked. That question, at least, was an easy one to answer. Or is it? “Because Reese is paying me,” he purred. He walked his fingers along the human’s arm, but he wasn’t rewarded with any sort of reaction — not even a flinch.
Instead, Leo remained still, locking eyes with him. “Is that the only reason?” He reached out after a moment, grasping Khaz’s wrist and then gently but firmly trying to remove his hand. Khaz didn’t budge for several seconds, but then he yielded, letting his hand be shoved aside.
Khaz arched a brow, gazing at the man for a long moment before speaking. “Do I need to have another reason?” He wasn’t sure he wanted to know the answer to his own question, but it hovered in the air between them all the same.
“No, but usually people do,” Leo remarked, regarding Khaz’s hand where it had settled at his side. “They don’t just do things for money. They might say they do, but there’s usually something more.”
“I’m a prostitute,” Khaz said dryly. “I do plenty just for money.” Despite those words, he knew Leo was right. He wasn’t doing this for the cash, even though it would be extremely welcome. It wasn’t easy to provide for himself, let alone his childe as well. But he was doing it because he knew Noah wanted to.
“Maybe it’s time to think about doing things for more than just cash.”
Who the fuck did the human think he was? Khaz’s temper flared, and he fought to keep the lazy smile on his lips. “And why would I do that?”
“Because it’s the right thing to do.”
Khaz snorted, shaking his head and running a hand through his hair. “Right.” He tested the word on his tongue. “There’s no room for right or wrong in this world, not anymore.”

Author Bio

R. Phoenix has an unhealthy fascination with contrasts: light and dark, heroes and villains, order and chaos. She believes that love can corrupt and power can redeem. Her muse is a sadomasochistic slave driver who thinks it’s terribly amusing to give her the best ideas when she just got comfortable and warm in bed, and she passes on that torture to her readers.

If she had it her way, she would describe the books in her “Ripples in the Status Quo” world as: “Supernatural creatures take over the world and turn humans into pets and food. There’s some sex between guys. And… um… effed up things happen.” It’s probably a good thing she has people around her to remind her that she actually wants people to read her books. (They should really be more diligent, especially when they know she’s writing her author bio.)

She tries entirely too hard to be funny, and she mercilessly inflicts her terrible sense of humor upon anyone who speaks to her. Really, it’s not you. It’s her. All the same, she’d love it if you’d say hello.

  1. This sounds interesting. I love vampires and dark gritty worlds, but I’ll need to start with the first book.
    Which is ok because I also like a big sprawling series that can really explore the characters and their world.
