 Across two planes, a war will rage. Lives will be lost. Love will be found. 
And the Seelie Fae will welcome their true kings home

In one horrifying night, Bronwyn Finn lost her family, her kingdom, and the princes who had haunted her dreams for years. Left alone, years pass as she fights for survival and craves revenge against the uncle who took everything from her. But she’s never forgotten her Dark Ones.

A tragedy marred Lach and Shim McIver’s future. The future kings of the Unseelie Fae are obsessed with finding their promised wife—Bronwyn. Lach and Shim have never stopped believing that Bronwyn is their mate. She is the bond that connects the halves of their shared soul.

With the blessing of the renegade kings, Beck and Cian Finn, Lach and Shim begin a dangerous quest to find their bride before Torin and his hags take her life.

If you haven't found Sophie Oak yet, you have no idea what your missing!  Her ability to blend BDSM elements with absolute heart melting romance is nothing less than magical.  With her Faery series she takes those elements to a whole new plane. Literally!

In Beauty, the third (and possibly the last book in the Faery series, although I have my doubts, :)  we finally get a look into the darker side of things.  If you're familiar with Faery lore then you know I'm talking about the Unseelie plane.  Lach and Shim are the princes of the Unseelie Fae, but have been written off as weak by their father.  At a young age Bronwynn, Princess of the Seelie court, found them in their dreams. For years they played, laughed, and learned what love was together.  The Twins knew that she was their destined mate, but their father and the rest of court wrote off their 'dream-mate' as pure fantasy.

Bronwynn lived a life of leisure until her power hungry Uncle decided to murderously usurp the throne.  She barely escapes the castle with her life, but can't escape her home plane safety.  Separated from her brothers, trapped in a kingdom ruled by a tyrant she has no choice but to hide in plain site.   Taking on a new identity of a peasant, she lives a meager existence.  Only in her dreams does she truly feel alive with her Dark Ones.  
After years of separation the time has come.  Lach and Shim feel the tides changing and know it's time to get Bronwynn.  So begins an epic adventure to save the woman they love and bring peace back to the Seelie plane.

When I say epic and I mean it. Some people might not believe that an erotic romance could be considered epic, but honestly, there is so much that happens in this book that I'm at a loss at how much to say.  I don't want to spoil anything, but WOW!  So many laughs and so many tears (yes, expect to bawl like a baby near the end of the book)  Sophie Oak proves again that plot, character development and an overall great story can come from an erotic romance.  Check out Beauty, you won't be disappointed. 

*For fans of Sophie's contemporary series Night's in Bliss you're in for a bit of a surprise when a quirky alternate plane version of Bliss, Colorado, including 'Crazy Mel', make an appearance!*

Be sure to check out the first two in the series!

Megan Starke has never been special to anyone. With an unrewarding job and a failed marriage, no one would confuse her life with a fairy tale. So when she is kidnapped and taken to a magical world to be the grand prize in a fierce and bloody tournament, she isn't sure if she is in a dream or a nightmare. 
Beckett Finn was supposed to be Prince Charming. He and his brother, Cian, were to inherit the throne of the Seelie Fae and rule over a fantasy kingdom. But the thrust of a traitor's blade stole that future. Now the brothers are fading, cursed by their royal blood unless they find a mate who can restore them. When Beck sees Meg, her body calls to him and he knows she is the key to their salvation. 
Bound by passion and fate, it's time for Meg to find her happily ever after.

Fresh from his latest scandal, vampire playboy Dante Dellacourt has been given an ultimatum – take a consort and settle down or be disowned.
Exiled by her pack, the werewolf Kaja is stolen from her frozen plane and awakens in a foreign world. Frightened and alone, she savagely fights for her freedom.
When Dante and his Fae cousins are called to defend the gnomes of the marketplace from their feral prize, he discovers that Kaja glows like no other consort he has ever seen. Exotic and wild, her body calls to him in ways he had not dreamed possible.
In order to claim his werewolf, he must first tame this ferocious beauty. 
But to earn her submission, will Dante be forced to unleash his inner beast?

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
