Riley’s Forbidden Omega: Third Book in the Cherry Hollow MPREG Series

Book 3

So, today I’m doing a very satisfying thing. I’m clearing off my desk of the post it notes for the editing of Riley’s Forbidden Omega. It is what it is, as they say, and Meg and I released that baby into the wild.

I’ve been doing a lot of editing lately, maybe more editing than writing. I don’t necessarily mind it, even though sometimes I resent the time spent doing it. Editing is amazing. It makes every book sparkle and shine, and takes a good story to a great (and sometimes far more understandable) story.

I guess I’m a liar. I don’t hate editing. I love editing.

Anyway, releasing Riley’s Forbidden Omega was my weekend, and I would love to thank everyone who has picked it up so far. You’re all amazing and we rely on you to keep this series running.

Thanks again,

Riley Sheridan has it all—loving family, college football career, and good looks. The only thing he’s missing is a relationship with the one person he can never have. As a teenager, Riley met Ambrose Whitlock precisely once and knew, without a doubt, that he wanted to be with him. The next time Riley saw Ambrose was at his alpha uncle’s wedding—as an omega groom.

Ambrose Whitlock-Harlow tried to love the husband his father arranged for him to marry, but Jacob was demanding, borderline cruel, and more focused on his political career than his young husband. Jacob leaves when, after several years, Ambrose doesn’t become pregnant.

One stormy night Ambrose’s life is turned upside down by Riley returning to town with an abandoned dog he found on the highway. Riley doesn’t know where to take the mutt, and Ambrose is well-known for his work at the local animal shelter. It doesn’t take Riley and Ambrose long to pick up the fragile relationship they started years ago.

The more time Riley and Ambrose spend together, the faster they fall in love. Not everyone approves, especially when Ambrose becomes pregnant with Riley’s child. The divorce isn’t official yet, and Jacob threatens to take away everything Riley and Ambrose built together.

This 92,000 word story is the third book in the Cherry Hollow Series.

Thanks for reading, everyone! I’m doing my first day blitz, but will come back to talk about Cherry Hollow, my move to KU with my books, and my other projects soon. Thanks! 

Brodie’s Million Dollar Omega

Cherry Hollow Series #2

✨Available in KU✨



Brodie Miller is an alpha who has had a rough year living in the city. His omega maxed out his credit cards and left him high and dry. The failed relationship sends Brodie running for a free room at home and the familiar comfort of small town living in Cherry Hollow. He finds a serious job, and a side hustle as a bartender, to start digging himself out of trouble.


Porter Eastwood was born into an influential, Cherry Hill family. He never missed out on anything money could buy. Entangled in the Eastwood family business, Porter is unhappy with his job, and if that isn’t enough to make him miserable, he’s a failed omega who has never been in heat.


When Porter finds himself infatuated with the new bartender at his favorite drinking spot, sparks fly, and they tumble their way into bed. Much to Porter’s surprise, it sends him into his very first heat. Brodie steps up to the challenge, the first man to make Porter feel truly cared for, but their amazing chemistry can’t stop reality from creeping in. Porter is still an Eastwood, and Brodie didn’t grow up on Cherry Hill.


Porter soon realizes he made a serious mistake during his heat, and a baby is on the way. Brodie’s day job has him delving into the seedier aspects of the Eastwood empire. With Brodie getting closer to finding out if the Eastwoods are involved in illegal activity, and Porter carefully counting down days until he might start to show, will they be able to make their relationship work?

Don’t miss Book #1

Welcome to Cherry Hollow…. Home of the Cherry Festival! 🍒


Sheriff Trent Miller was happy with his perfect little life. Being a thirty-six-year-old omega with no partner or family suited him just fine, until it all changed. When he ran out of his heat-suppressant pills and his doctor refused to prescribe more, he had his first heat in years. Around the same time, a young alpha who drives him crazy started working as his partner.


Lawson Fisher hated Cherry Hollow. He only returned to his small hometown to help his papa when his dad was diagnosed with cancer. Working alongside Sheriff Miller was frustrating at the best of times, but when Trent went into heat, Lawson felt it was his duty to help him through it, like any good alpha. Besides, he couldn’t seem to keep his hands off Trent.


The more time Lawson spends with Trent, the more he realizes the omega isn’t as bad as he first thought. When they find out Trent’s pregnant, both their lives change. They need to decide the best thing to do for themselves and their baby, especially since not everyone in town is rooting for them to have a happily ever after.

Incubus Adored is Available for Purchase and in Kindle Unlimited

I realized I totally, 100% forgot to post that Incubus Adored was live! How forgetful of me. I know I have a blog, and yet I consistently forget to do anything with it.

Incubus Adored © Ki Brightly May 2018

Gravidam Series #1

Peirs had accepted his life of servitude to an angel. His keeper asked only for a willing body, and in exchange his needs were met and he was fed and clothed. Peirs might have served the angel forever—it was the only life he knew—but one day Peirs discovered something he had no way to plan for. After two millennia, he was pregnant. Peirs now must summon the courage to escape his master and the unbendable divine law that declared no half-breeds should live, but running into an angelic soldier in the back room of a bar wasn’t part of his plan.

After years of begging to go to the battlefields on Earth, Tabbis, the youngest angel in Heaven, finally got his assignment. Ready for heroics and bloodshed, he was stunned when he found enchanting and seductive Peirs instead. Tabbis was duty bound to kill Peirs, but Peirs’s very existence challenged everything Tabbis thought he knew.

Tabbis needs answers. Peirs wants nothing more than to save his baby and live in peace. Can they band together to help each other? Or will the wrath of Heaven tear them apart?

Reviews are Better Than Roses

Hello everyone!

I would like to kindly ask anyone who has read The Shape of Honey (I know it’s a long book and just came out, so I’m sure many people haven’t had the chance.) to please leave a review on Goodreads and/or Amazon (or wherever you purchased it). It would mean a lot to me and help me a lot too. Many people don’t like to buy a book unless they can see what other people have thought about it.

And I know some of you may not have liked the book that much. Leave the review anyway! Let your voice be heard. Constructive criticism is always welcome.

Thank you all you lovely people!


Check out The Shape of Honey! Here’s an excerpt. Available from Amazon and other sellers.


Yulian Volkov is an entrepreneur and lone werewolf who hates the city. At a pack meeting, he learns the only member he’s attracted to is being expelled for crimes unspecified. Yulian strikes a deal with the pack leader to allow Rolly Witten to live on his farm and work in his Meadery. Although enjoying handsome Rolly’s company, Yulian must tread carefully, since Rolly doesn’t trust him and the pack doesn’t acknowledge homosexuality exists. Meanwhile, Yulian stealthily courts Rolly by teaching him the value of his wolf side.

Rolly, who’s known he was gay since he was a teen, has accepted a life of solitude—and a life of crime. He has no desire to relocate. Yet Yulian’s trust in his ability to do honest work builds his confidence. As life is settling well for them, Rolly learns a friend from his old pack had a crush on him, and he’s torn between returning his friend’s feelings or pursuing the budding relationship with Yulian. But that’s not their worst problem. Assassins are trying to take out both wolves, and they need to figure out who wants them dead or all the trust and happiness they’re building together won’t matter.
