Surprise cover reveal!

Posted on by Charmaine Pauls


Here they are, the covers for my dark romance duet, designed by the amazing Kellie Dennis​ from Book Cover by Design. They will be published back-to-back on 10 October and 14 November. Pre-order links will follow next week. To add the books to your want-to-read list on Goodreads you can follow these links:



Dubious (Book 1)
I’m a loan shark. Breaking people is in my blood. The Haynes’s were supposed to be a straightforward job. Go in and pull the trigger twice. One bullet for Charlie, one for his sister. But when I saw Valentina, I wanted her. Only, in our world, those who owe us don’t get second chances. No way in hell will my mother let her live. So I devised a plan to keep her.

It’s depraved.
It’s immoral.
It’s dubious.

It’s perfect.
Just like her.


Consent (Book 2)
When Gabriel broke down my door, he took over my body and life. Never with force, but always with clever manipulation. He stripped me of my independence, my defenses, and my clothes and turned me into an addict. My addiction is him.

Once, I had dreams and a future. Now, I have fears, scars, and insatiable needs. I’m damaged beyond repair, but if I’m to survive the most dangerous man in Johannesburg, I can’t allow him to break me, because broken toys are destined for the garbage dump.

There are a hundred reasons why Sara should stay away from Wayne. Number one, he is an ex-convict. Number two, she has to claim his land to save the elephants. Number three, she is hiding a forbidden gift, a secret that can get her and anyone close to her killed. But most important of all, can she trust her body and heart to a murderer? When neither can resist the attraction, things can only get dangerously out of hand.

An ex-convict and wildlife ranger romance

Posted on by Charmaine Pauls

Are you ready for ex-convict, Wayne and park ranger, Sara’s story? Scapulimancist, the ANIMAL book of the SEVEN FORBIDDEN ARTS series, will be published on 10 January. This is Book 7 of the series but also reads as a standalone. For best reading enjoyment and character insight it is recommended to read the series in order.

A woman on a mission to save the elephants…
An ex-convict who won’t part with his land…
When their passion and goals collide, the crash is volatile.

Sara Graham has no idea what she is getting herself into when she uses her forbidden art to protect the near-extinct elephants and their habitat in the Knysna forest, South Africa. From the minute she sets foot in the woodcutters’ bar, she endangers her life. The gift hunters who would kill for her art are not the only threat. The wood smugglers will sooner murder her than let the National Parks Board ranger stand in their way. Falling for woodcutter and ex-convict, Wayne West, only further complicates matters. Can Sara trust a man convicted of the cruelest of murders?

Danger comes to town with a green SANParks vest and a tight body. Wayne knows Sara is all kinds of trouble from the first time he lays eyes on her in the bar. Alone, she doesn’t stand a chance. If he protects her, he will not only be branded as a traitor with the woodcutters, but he may also lose his job, and worse, his land. That is to say if they make it out alive. Even then, can he forgive her for taking the only thing he has left?
