Black Widow's Bite

Black Widow's Bite - A paranormal why-choose romance novel, and Book 1 in the Monsters in the Darkness Duology.

Addison has resigned herself to the fact that she’ll be alone forever, thanks to an unfortunate ‘gift’ that drives anyone who touches her to the brink of insanity. When a vicious attack sends her tumbling down a staircase, Addison stumbles upon four reclusive men who are just as troubled as she is. Wyatt, whose tortured soul screams for relief as he takes pain from everyone around him. Austin, whose affinity with snakes has left him stuck inside for fear of cruelty. Piper, whose ability to see the future comes at a terrible cost, leaving his mind fractured and his clarity waning with each passing day. Cain, the terrifying protector of this group of misfits, would gladly burn the world – Addison included – to keep them safe.

Addison’s world is turned upside down as fate keeps pushing her towards these four men, and she begins to wonder if maybe this den of monsters is exactly where she belongs. On the heels of her arrival, the group receives a terrifying warning, and Addison’s dreams begin to look more like dark omens as they prepare to fight an unknown threat.

What could be so evil that it would scare the monsters lurking in the dark?

What readers are saying about Black Widow’s Bite

Loved every minute of it! It’s been awhile since I’ve read a good why choose and this was just what I needed. I loved being able to see just how Addy developed her relationships with each guy and how her gift affected them. It was literally like she was the perfect fit to their little family of misfits. I can’t wait to see what Bella has up her sleeve next!

So, so good! I read it in less than 24 hours! It was that good, I didn’t want to put it down. Bella painted a vivid picture and wrote flawlessly. I can’t choose who I like best. Piper, Wyatt, Austin, and Cain are the perfect men when put all together. I love how Addy just embraced her it and them all.They all care about each other. And, the spice was so good! I’m not ashamed to say, it got me hot!! I love the chosen family, touch her and die (x4), Mr. grumpy, Golden Retriever, Witty Banter, open bed, why choose. Ooh, the villain you love to hate! And, the ending, what the actual…I hope I get the honor of reading book #2! Accessibility: super easy fast read with text to speech. I can’t wait for the audio!!
