R.B. O'Brien

​R.B. O'Brien has always been drawn to the more taboo side of storytelling, even as a young adult, from hiding books from strict Catholic parents as a teen to getting lost in the erotic sections of bookstores for hours. As a writer, O'Brien explores the darker, erotic nature of relationships, those riddled with the reality of insecurities and human folly, exposing the vulnerability, emotional turmoil, and occasional pain that can come from losing oneself in the heat of passion. 
Her first series, the highly acclaimed Natalie's Edge trilogy, is now available in ebook format from all retailers, the third of which, Redemption, was nominated for the Golden Flogger Award for best BDSM romance. THORNE, O'Brien's second dark romance suspense series, Rose's Dark Contract and Rose's Dark Secret, is also available now in eprint on exclusively Amazon, a tale where things are not what they seem. Book Three, THORNE: Rose's Dark Awakening is due out May 2017. O'Brien has just released her award-winning series, formerly the Capture of Rosemary, The IMOGEN series, and if you sign up for her newsletter, you will receive the first installment absolutely free.
O'Brien holds a degree in English literature and happily resides in the Northeast of the United States. She is a founding member of the new literary movement with the erotic romance genre, The Nu Romantics. You can learn more about this here: as well as visiting her blog for the initial motivation for the revolution.
