Discover the Club Raven Series by BA Tortuga, Julia Talbot & Kiernan Kelly

A Note from author Kiernan Kelly on the Club Raven Series....

First, thank you, for letting me come play in your sandbox! :)
I’m so excited about the release of a brand new, shared universe series, Club Raven, that I have with B.A. Tortuga and Julia Talbot. We’ve been working on this one for a while, and let me tell you it turned into quite a bumpy ride at the end.
It began last year, when BA had the idea of writing a kinky, magical men’s club set in the time of Edgar Allen Poe. When BA and Julia approached me about it (we’d had a great time writing our other shared universe, the Midnight Rodeo series), I think I said “yes” before the words were even out of their mouths. In honor of Mr. Poe, we called the series (and men’s club) “Club Raven.”
What could be better than mixing BDSM with magic, hot men, and the rawness of the late 1800’s? Nothing I could think of. It sounded like so much fun! We decided to pitch the idea during the Romantic Times convention last year in Las Vegas.
Which was our first -- and only -- mistake. We pitched it to All Romance Ebooks.
Now, in our defense, we had no idea at the time that ARE was already a sinking ship. We were under the impression they were doing fine, and the owner was a standup person who would honor her commitments.
Oh, how wrong we were!
Our books were set to release in early January 2017. A few days before their supposed release, we got the news that ARE was taking its toys and going home, leaving us high and dry. Argh!
So, what did we do? Did we weep into our Venti iced coffees? Did we wail and gnash our teeth and pull our hair?
Okay, in all honesty, yes, we did all those things. But then we pulled up our big girl panties and decided to publish them ourselves. We joined forces with our good friend, Sean Michael, and opened Evil Plot Bunny, LLC. Before we even knew it, we had a website ( and plans to publish and sell the books we originally  had up at ARE. Along with a couple of other authors we invited to come play, went live on January 17, 2017, the same day we released the Club Raven series.
Anyway, we made our own happy ending, and invite everyone to come read about our sexy, kinky, magical men in the Club Raven series!

Calling His Bluff by BA Tortuga

After his twin dies in battle, it’s Patrick Daniels’ duty to marry his brother’s fiancée. Too bad he can’t make himself do it, and in his distress, he manifests a psychic talent that’s stronger than the tornadoes in his native East Texas. Then a mysterious man from a place called Club Raven steps in and sweeps Patrick off to the booming East Coast city of Baltimore.
Club Raven veteran Remy Blanchard sees Patrick and knows, even though Patrick is very ill, that this is the challenge he’s been waiting for. He nurses Patrick back to health, and begins to teach Patrick to control his talent. His methods might be unconventional, and Patrick might be new to the kinds of sexual games Remy knows best, but the two of them find something in each other that might be just as magical as the gentleman’s club where they meet.

Happy Medium by Julia Talbot

Andrew is out to debunk Max as a medium, not make love to him...
Max Bellame is working his way through 1870s Baltimore as a medium, even if he knows nothing about spirits. He uses the power of his mind to move objects, convincing his clients he's the real thing.
Andrew Meechum works for Club Raven, a gentleman's club that doubles as a paranormal research facility. He sets out to debunk Max, only to be fascinated by the man. Can Andrew convince Max to take a chance on love, and to find his true calling as a medium, or will their personal demons force them apart?

Wishful Thinking by Kiernan Kelly

Tony Brazzio, co-owner of Club Raven, Baltimore's premiere men's club in 1875, has a pocketful of cash and a chip on his shoulder. He’s out to prove to his co-owners -- and himself -- that he’s not a fluke, that anyone can be successful give the opportunity, no matter how poor his beginnings.
Bull O’Brian and Dandy Gilroy are two hoodlums from the rough streets of New York’s Five Points. They’re pickpockets by trade, and both possess psychic talents that make them two of the best. When Tony offers to bring them to Baltimore and give them the chance at a life of riches in polite society, they jump at the chance, if only to steal the members of Club Raven blind.
The best of plans rarely work the way they’re intended, and things swiftly go from bad to worse for Dandy and Bull. There’s murder afoot and a detective on their trail, and not even copious amounts of hot, sweaty sex can ease their fear or guilt.
As for Tony, he’s faced with admitting his experiment is a failure, something he’s loathe to do. It’ll take a great deal of persuasion, a little luck, and a lot of lube to make sure his plans for Dandy and Bull become more than just wishful thinking.
