Bella Ross is a writer with many passions, two of which are writing and travelling. She wrote her first book (a novel) at eighteen a la Jackie Collins. But back then, unbeknownst to her, life was about to take her on a detour. As she set off on her new course, her dream of writing took a backseat and her entrepreneurial spirit flourished instead. But after many years of worldly pursuits, the urge to write returned and the time was right to follow her bliss. She believes its never too late to follow your dreams/bliss. Her books/stories are her first attempt at erotic romance. She loves the genre and its endless creative possibilities. She likes pairing bold and dynamic (Alpha) men with sexy and strong women - which in her opinion - make for a hot and sizzling combination. With her love of travel, it is no surprise that her 'Wanderlust Series' take place in glamorous capitals or exotic locales around the world. Its the perfect backdrop/setting for her characters to explore and indulge their lusts and passions, loves and desires. When she's not writing, she's reading, or gallivanting all over seeking new inspiration, or people watching while enjoying a latte at Starbucks and jotting down ideas. She loves to hear from readers, and looks forward to interacting through her social media channels. You can also sign up for her mailing list to be notified about new releases and promotional offers.
genre: erotica intended for people age 18+ Angela and her brand-new husband Josh have just arrived at their honeymoon destination, a romantic bed-and-breakfast hotel on the breath-taking Washington coast - the Inn on the Edge. But everything isn't as it seems. The lessons that come free with the room aren't for painting the lovely coastal scenery - the lessons are for better sex. Angie and Josh, shocked and titillated, immerse themselves in every sensual offering.It doesn't take long for things to go horribly wrong. The discover that the old man running the place is a sex demon, who has been stealing their sensual energy. Worse, he's dangerously in love with Angie and he has plans for her - plans involving an heirloom wedding ring.
This is not your ordinary erotica. Inn on the edge is filled with suspense, mystery, intrigue and yes, loads of steaminess. Angie and Josh are headed for their honeymoon. They are a normal, run of the mill couple who are just looking for a relaxing time. They are 3 other couples also vacationing at the Inn but they are no where to be found until breakfast the next morning. Josh tells Angie that he brought her paints and stuff for her to use on the honeymoon, which she funds odd, but considerate.
Upon driving up to the Inn both Josh and Angie have an odd feeling but they shake it off and head into the Inn that looks like it fell out of a horror story. Once inside they are greeted by a creepy. perverted old man named Mr Adi Abiba. He doesn’t hide his skeevy nature and encourages the couple to indulge in any desire that pops into their head and challenges them to complete a sex game he designed especially for them. This begins a whirlwind of crazy things that happen to the couple. They become enchanted. Their personalities change and they begin to do things with the other couples and the guides, as Mr Abiba called them, that they normally wouldn’t do. Their host seems oddly obsessed with each couples artistic nature. He manipulates the couples and they are so under a spell that they fail to see the situation is becoming dangerous. Secrets are revealed, the guides begin to rebel and the fog seems to be lifted at times. When Angie, Josh and the guides are finally clued in to what Abiba really is things start to spiral out of control.
I totally recommend this book to anyone who like paranormal, erotica, suspense or all of them combined. The book has something for everyone really, in my opinion. 5 stars from me.
About the author
I have three grown children. I live in Seattle, Washington with my husband and our five cats.
In the past I have worked in a variety of different artistic media. I have a BFA in painting from the University of Washington, and for over fifteen years I made award-winning Fine Art Jewelry (silver and handmade ceramics) and sold my work at local and regional Fine Art and Craft shows. My business, Vivid Arts, flourished - but always, I felt driven to write. Two years ago, no longer able to deny the writing muse, I took an open-ended sabbatical from my art shows. Since then, I've written two novels and a number of published and unpublished short stories.

As a picturesque mother and wife, forty-one year old Avery Richards seems to have it all. Married to a successful veterinarian named Noah and mother to a spunky daughter named Kara, her life is far from awful but she is stuck. With the recent move of their daughter, who has just flown the coop for college, this story examines the deep and often-tumultuous bond between mother and child and the lengths we are willing to go to, as mothers, to sacrifice our own happiness for the ones we love.
As we watch Avery walk through her ‘new’ way of daily life, without her ambitious and stubborn child around to mother any longer, we are given a very unique opportunity to tip toe in the front row of their lives, from three very separate views. We will see life as it plays out through her mature and motherly eyes, through Kara’s young and sheltered heart, and then through ‘someone else’s eyes’ that has a vested interest in them both.
As Avery’s well-hidden web of lies come crashing down in an unexpected way, her secrets that she’s safeguarded for years will threaten to rip her peaceful world apart, as well as the world of the ones she loves most. As readers, we will watch how ONE single choice can alter everything. Each character will then be forced to examine what the true meaning of love and forgiveness means to them.
Every gamut of emotion will be explored: humor, sadness, love, joy, betrayal, hate, and forgiveness. Bond of Love will leave you pondering the age-old question: How well do YOU actually know the ones you love most?
Review from Sue:
I just love reading books by new and upcoming authors!!! From the way she writes, I can predict that Amy Suzanne will do well!!!
I love the way that she describes the characters - Avery, Noah and Kara. I love how each character interacts with the others - and then how they each reacts to the secrets that are discovered. I won't say any more - because I don't want to spoil the book for you.
Amy is definitely an author that I want to read more of her works. I found this book hard to put down and wanting to spend all my time reading.
I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
Meet the Author:
This is Amy’s second published work, the first being a memoir written exclusively for her children. As a former second grade teacher, and long time professional photographer, she has been writing and filling journals since she was young enough to hold a pencil and form words. Although writing brings her to a place of solace and joy, her most ambitious and fulfilling job in life thus far has been being a mother. Married for nearly two decades now, she and her husband share four daughters, who fill their lives with amusement, love, and drama daily. It is her lifelong goal to preserve her family’s history through the written word, pictures, and the human touch of love.
