I always felt there was something peculiar about Roald Trenton, that behind his blindness he saw me better than I saw myself. When a frightening creature, a being out of a horror movie attacks me, a glowing silvery defender comes to my rescue, sweeping me away to safety, reaching inside me, and pulling the poison from my body. Setting fire to my desires, he ignites a connection to a world I knew nothing about…until now.
With bonus material. Titanian’s Phoenix’s excerpt included.
This is the perfect starting block to Victoria’s epic fantasy series.
NO UNDRESSED IS NOT EROTICA IT’S A METAPHOR BUT TRY TELLING THAT TO AMAZON!
I wrote this collection for my fans. I’m honest with my writing, even allowing them into some of my memories of growing up. Not only does it contain original flash fiction written, especially for the collection. It had excerpts from my published and unpublished work. And many don’t know that I write poetry, so that may come as a surprise.
Here’s what readers are saying about UNDRESSED.
This is the first work I have read by Ms.Kantas, and I was not disappointed. A variety is included in this volume…chapters from stories, poems, exercises from writing classes, etc. I found a thought-provoking style of writing, sometimes edgy, sometimes reflective, but always engaging. I could feel the emotions and was entertained as well as inspired.
I look forward to reading more by Ms. Kantas. 5 stars.
Oh, I love the first story and would love to see it as a full novel. It’s very innovative and reeled me in and got me wondering. What if? This book is what I like to call a collection of creative potions. My favorite is the Watcher. I didn’t know where the story was going and didn’t wondered. I love the path it was taking me. This writer is a great talent and I look forward to reading more from her.
This is a fantastic book which merges poetry and story together with a very skillful hand by the author. The way where prose and story merges allows the reader to be able to drift along with great ease and delight. Karina shows a unique and gifted hand when she writes and it shows upon the pages of this book. A fantastic book from a fantastic author…for my first book from this author…she deserves the 5 stars.
As a thank you for downloading the book. here’s a original unpublished flashfiction for you. I hope you enjoy.
Venice just got home after finishing a double shift at the café she worked in. Christmas time was always busy. It wasn’t a job she enjoyed or was proud of. It was a means to an end, paying for uni as her ambition was to be a zookeeper and eventually be able to look after the wild animals.
Tired and ready for sleep, Venice turned on her laptop to check her socials before turning in.
A message pop up immediately.
Was all he wrote. Smiling she typed back –
LonelyGirl: hi, how r u?
For the next 2 hours the two strangers become friends and although he flirted with her, he didn’t make her feel uncomfortable. Venice’s eyes were closing and so she typed her goodbye and promised to chat the next day.
As soon as she woke, Venice was excited to see if there were any messages from him. She jumped back when her screen opened, and a large burnt orange coloured teddy bear was now her Wallpaper. He was smiling and had bright blue eyes. He was certainly cute she thought. Venice assumed the guy had somehow hacked into her computer and changed her wallpaper, after all his username was Teddy Bear. Strange, but too much of a coincidence.
She asked him about it and he immediately replied as though he was waiting for her message.
TeddyBear: Nope, it wasn’t me. If I knew ur addy I ‘d send u a real teddy so u could cuddle onto at night”
Venice went to work and tried not to think about where the image had come from and was excited to continue the flirting banter, she had going with her online teddy bear.
A week went by and their relationship continued. It was on a Saturday before Christmas, when Venice wondered if it was time to take their friendship to the next level. As though he heard her thoughts, he messaged her.
TeddyBear: I think it’s time we met up. What do u think?
LonelyGirl: Yes, I’d luv to.
She quickly replied. Wouldn’t it be romantic to meet up on New Year’s Eve? She could only imagine how handsome Teddy Bear was and what a romantic time they would have walking around looking at the Christmas lights, maybe they could skate on the ice.
TeddyBear: Say the words “I want u to hug me.”
Venice paused before he started typing again.
TeddyBear: Humour me. Say the words “I want you to hug me. “then I’ll no u r serious about us meeting.
LonleyGirl: I want u to hug me.
TeddyBear No! Don’t type them say them out LOUD.
LonleyGirl: but how will u hear me?
TeddyBear didn’t reply.
She shrugged and said to the empty room “I want you to hug me.”
Suddenly the screen goes black, before a growling can be heard, then her wallpaper appears. The head of the teddy bear turns as its arms stretch out towards her. Venice screamed, but before she can run, the bears claws come out of the screen and dug into her shoulders, grabbing her with such force her head and then chest are pulled in. Her legs were the last part of her body that disappeared.
The screen goes black and the laptop switches off.
There’s something strange happening when you read this book. Are you willing to try it?
The book is free to get into the seasonal SPIRIT.
Forget every horror story you have ever read. This one will scare the life out of you—literally. The shocked and horrified residents of Peacedale, R.I. panic and flee the town and the state as gruesome murders suddenly start taking place on New Year’s Day, 2098. The entire planet is on edge as these killings spread to every country ignoring race, creed, color, and status. No one is safe from being broiled and charred in a horror tale that turns the entire Witch and Wicca community of Salem, Massachusetts upside-down. Can a team of ghost debunkers find the answers before more victims are sliced, diced, and broiled? Good thing they have Edgar, Athana’s Raven, to help guide the way.
This book is an homage to every Occult, Witch, Ghost, and Werewolf movie, novel, and tales of lore spread and told throughout the ages. Ash is dedicated to those souls who were wrongly persecuted during the 17th-century witch trials and beyond. Even people thought to be Werewolves were murdered across Europe, England, and America. How did the phrase we now know as a “witch-hunt” really gain momentum? You will be shocked as we uncover the final truth. Athana sets out to right the wrongs done to settlers of the New World 400 years ago along with her coven, The Austin Circle of Witches.

***** CG Blade has written the scariest story I have read. When I Recieved my book I also Recieved a disclaimer form to sign. I loved the witches . the storyline is awesome. He has not disappointed with this one.
***** Amazing story! I am buying the rest of this author’s works. I cannot recommend this enough. I have been a sci fi fan for a very long time and I love this style. Old school, fast paced pulp style adventure upgraded to a modern world.
***** This main story revolves around a town with a supernatural and fire-spewing historic “issue” that not many folks seem to be aware of. But the ones that are…well, they’re to dangerous to get close to!
***** This bone chilling modern horror tale will startled the toughest. The characters are so well developed and written. The ending is everything!!! It perfect sets up the next book. I really want to spoil it, but I won’t. I’ll say this, nothing is final.
Strong Characters Unleash Their Claws in Suspenseful Psychological Thriller About Vigilantism and Living A Double Life
Vigilantism and gang membership has a certain appeal to some people. Like the beginning of The Godfather when undertaker, Bonasera, can’t find justice from the police against the WASP bullies who raped and nearly murdered his daughter. He realizes that for real justice, he must go to Don Vito Corleone. Some people become vigilantes or appeal to gangs when they feel that the system not only won’t help them, but favor the oppressors.
That’s the situation in Karina Kantas’ suspenseful psychological thriller, Lawless Justice book three of her Outlaw Series. When someone is hurt in an abusive situation or is the victim of a crime from a powerful untouchable villain, then for justice these people go not to the police, but to the Kittnz (sic), an all female biker gang that unsheath their claws and enact swift retribution for those who are oppressed and victimized.
The Kittnz are seen through the eyes of Cass, a journalist coming off an abusive relationship. She returns to her home of Milton Keynes, and during a night out with her sister encounters the gang for the first time. The Kittnz may have the name, but they are more like the Big Cats in town. They are beautiful women who drive their own motorcycles, wear leather jackets, and will pick a fight with anyone in their way. Cass is fascinated by this strange gang, but even more so when they save her life after a confrontation with two men. Cass recuperates in their hideout and is eventually invited to join the gang.
Lawless Justice walks a fine but distinct line with it’s characters. The Kittnz are clearly the protagonists. Their motives are understandable, but their actions are extremely violent. They will defend a battered wife by beating the daylights out of her abusive husband or give a verbal and physical warning to some White Supremacist youths to leave an immigrant family alone.
But sometimes their behaviors spin out of control like when they take retribution so far as to burn an enemy’s house down. They also aren’t above threatening members who want to get out. The book stops short of glorifying The Kittnz’s behavior or making them heroes, but it does go into the roots of why people join gangs or go to them for help. As regular women, they had been oppressed, abused, marginalized, threatened, and dismissed by authority figures so they feel that they have no choice but to strike back at those who harm them and others who are in the same situation.
One of the more intriguing aspects of this book is how expectations are subverted on who joins these gangs. The Kittnz are not high school dropouts, drug addicts, wayward girls in their teens and twenties from broken homes. These are women in their late 20’s-30’s in successful careers and day jobs, everything from doctor, lawyer, psychotherapist, photographer, mechanic, and journalist. By day they work and act as pillars of the community, but by night they vent out their frustrations and commit acts of violence. They have real names and identities, but are known primarily by their gang names: Raven (the leader), Scarlet, Jade, Eve, Storm, and Cass’ new name, Ice. In fact once Ice gets her new moniker, the third person narration refers to her with that name even when she is with family members and acquaintances outside the gang. It is a subtle reminder that the old abused victim, Cass is dead and in her place is Ice, a woman who
seeks action. with the cold detachment that her name suggests.
The book does not gloss over the violent ending that results from such a life. There is plenty of betrayal and second guessing of motives. Some characters get seriously hurt and others don’t make it. The gang life is a violent, angry, short, and ultimately self-destructive one and this book makes no mistake about that.
The Kittnz of Lawless Justice may be badass, but their book is the purrfect blend of action and psychology into the people who are motivated by violence and the actions that they commit.
When Streets of Fire came out in 1984 with the catchphrase “A Rock & Roll Fable“, you would’ve never thought that it was the perfect one for a book that was more than 30 years away from being written. – Sisterhood, trauma, friendship, family, self-worth, power, respect and reputation are some of the many themes this book deals with, and the author doesn’t forget to induce the reader to reflect upon the role of violence in human nature and the power it has to change someone’s character. Lawless Justice is a female tale that embraces universal concepts that are in every single one of us and the novel is a powerful page-turner that will have you always wanting for more.

An empty seat and a love that can withstand the trials of fate…
When Raquelita Muro takes the empty seat on the bus to avoid sitting beside her mother, she doesn’t expect to find the love of her life. But as the hours pass by on the journey from Texas to Florida, Raquelita knows that Matthew Buchanan is the one for her.
Except fate, the US Military, and an interfering mother stand between the young lovers and their destiny.
Exchanging letters in secret is their only hope as Matthew ships off to Vietnam and Raquelita and her family make a new life for themselves in Florida. And when tragedy strikes they will each be brought to the edge of what they can survive.
The course of true love never did run smooth, but will Matthew and Raquelita find each other again when half a world and an ocean of pain stand between them?
“The timeframe of this novel encompasses the Vietnam War, and Matthew will experience hardships that threaten his happiness with Raquelita. The subject is handled with respect and lends another level of emotion to this engaging book.
Ms. Saccenti writes beautifully. “They sat in silence, each immersed in the other. Words would only be superfluous. And as Raquelita and Matthew reposed, the wizened old oak, with its ancient, shading limbs, enclosed the lovers within its benevolent protection for a long, long, while.”
Passages such as this are throughout the book and brought a smile to this lover of words. 5 stars.”
In this sixth chilling novel in the Pseudoverse, Detective Lori Lynn Gutierrez, and former journalist Amanda Sese, both poisoned in Onyx and “recruited” by the NIB, have their work cut out for them as they are pulled into the biggest gun battle the nation has ever witnessed. An America divided is on the verge of a New Civil War over weapons that never need reloading while pushing the 2nd Amendment to its limit. Filled with brand new characters, a “Shadow Government” attempting to take control of your life, and a hypersexual ex-military Major turned mercenary at the helm, Chrome is a non-stop action-packed conspiracy you will never forget. This novel is rated ‘MA.’ It contains sex, drugs, mind-control, Taco Bell, crooked politicians, a Charger that can climb walls, a Viper with its own arsenal, great music, and a proud police detective whose partner who went from reporter to super sniper. This novel also contains words you never want to hear come out of your mother’s mouth and images your brain will never forget.
“All characters are real people. Just like the music is real, so is every person who is a main or secondary character(antagonist or protagonist). Read the thank you at the end to find out who everyone might be! I find this unique quality to be the biggest winner of the novels. Blade also has the real people, or someone close to them should they already be resting in peace, write the foreword. I am one to read forewords, but being a teacher for 20 years, I know what a drag they can be for the non-reader or the Escapist reader: Let me get to the good stuff! Well, these forewords are not to be skipped. Chrome and Onyx will tear your heart out, flip it around, and shove it back in upside-down. They are a must read from a character in the novel. Blade works hard (pesters…) to know his characters to portray them as accurately as possible. He does a bang up job. The classy touch of the Chrome Foreword just says it all for CG Blade.” Kate D. Amazon Review
Chrome is homage to Law Enforcement across the nation, our brave and wonderful men, and women that put their life on the line for us every day. Viewer discretion advised. Check out the sneak peek of our next novel “Indigo,” at the end of this mind ripper.
“We are with you everywhere.”
“CG BLADE does it again in the 6th installment of The Pseudoverse! Full of quirky trivia and references about himself by his characters you won’t want to put it down! A political, suspenseful, futuristic, sci-fi masterpieces with brain-washing and man made created, sentient, AI doppelgangers trying to take over the good old USA! I can’t wait to read his next work of art, INDIGO!”
“In Chrome, there is an increase in turmoil due to governmental organizations causing a divide between the people. This book puts the petal on the acceleration and doesn’t tell you to buckle up.”
“I’ve read several Electric Eclectic Books and these novelettes have provided a vast array of genres and authors. They break the mold once again by presenting the same story in both an adult erotic version that’s steamy hot and a touching, romantic read. I decided to read the adult version first. Written by author Karina Kantas, this is a no holds barred sensual exploration of passion in a dystopian society.
One hundred years in the future after the world has been changed by acid rain, a Malok named Lexi is straining against the rules of the new society. Lexi hungers for action and decides becoming a Ranger is her way out of her dull life. But her live-in boyfriend Aron doesn’t believe she is strong enough to take on the role of a fighter against the Outcasts. That group has been banned from the Malok’s mountain base, Mount Elta.
Aron loves her, but he treats her like a child, and she chafes under his attempts to control her. They have an intense sexual relationship, but Lexi is often distracted by the memory of a young friend who left years earlier, Marcus When Marcus suddenly reappears, Lexi is thrust back into her feelings for him. But their reunion is spoiled by the simultaneous arrival of a girl who bullied her in her youth, Mae. When it appears Marcus and Mae are a couple Lexi is heartbroken. She resists Marcus’s attempts to speak to her privately because she feels betrayed. It is only when tragedy strikes the Rangers that Lexi is forced to see things the way they truly are.
This is more than a sexy love story; this is a book about a world changed by disaster and people separated by their responses to overwhelming change. There are two societies, each seeking to utilize a resource for their own needs, and willing to fight to the death to remain in control.
Lexi is a strong young woman and represents the courage and independence of today’s women. She is lusty, brave, challenging, and daring. Although she is young, she knows what she wants and despite occasional reservations, she doesn’t hesitate to pursue her dreams.
I recommend this as a quick read that dips into the possible disasters of a future society where our refusal to address negative environmental behaviors leaves the world desolate and poisoned.”
“A sensual, erotic read…Karina dares to figure out the nature of passion…thoughtful and thought-provoking.”
Lexi isn’t your normal Malok. She craves adventure and freedom from the mundane life forced upon her. 100 years ago, the first drop of acid rain fell. Maloks fled to the mountains, building a new way of life—a desolate life—a life Lexi knows all too well.
Lexi has a plan, her ticket out of this miserable existence, becoming a ranger. Aron, her partner, believes she’s not strong enough to fight alongside him. Lexi will stop at nothing, no matter what the danger, to achieve her independence, even if that means defying him.
Amidst everything, Marcus, Lexi’s childhood best friend makes a sudden return. Before she can rejoice in a reunion, her happiness is crushed when she sees Mae, the bully that had terrorized her in her teens. Marcus was aware of the mental abuse Lexi had suffered and yet the person she loved and the person she hated the most, stand before her, together.
“A surprising powerful dystopian thriller that captures the heart and imagination”.
