About the Author

Ren Alexander writes steamy contemporary romance, including the Wild Sparks Series, and contributes to K. Bromberg’s Everyday Heroes Series from her desk in Motown—Detroit, Michigan. Yes, part of her state is shaped like a mitten, 8 Mile Road really exists, and Eminem is her neighbor and carpool buddy. Unfortunately, she and Slim Shady don’t ride in the same car. She’s still working on that part.

Writing her romance novels with a hefty dose of reality, the good and bad, Ren embraces the gritty and raw with a side of funny and crazy. No matter what, there is always an explosion. You never know what you’ll get in her mixed bag. That’s personal, anyway.

Ren lives in Detroit, Michigan, with her husband, two daughters, and two cats.

Ren’s novel, The Keys to Jericho, was chosen as an Official Selection in the Romance category of Apple Literary’s 2017 Annual Book Awards.

Books by Ren Alexander


Throwing down the gauntlet has never been so wild. Just ask Hadley Beckett.

Marriage. That word drives my nuptial-phobic boyfriend of three years, Finn Wilder, who is Richmond’s sexy, golden boy daredevil sportscaster, to the brink of madness. While the daredevil thrives on adrenaline and danger and eagerly professes his love for me, he’ll walk on the wild side and not down the aisle. Furthermore, Finn Wilder is single, according to his coworkers and viewers—Finnatics. I don’t exist.

Despite his marriage fears and questionable relationship status, Finn pressures me to move in with him. Still, traditional by today’s standards, I want to marry first, adhering to my beliefs, just as he desperately clings to his, regarding not starting a family with me.

As much as I love Finn, I’ve reached my limit with the lies, secrets, and his irrational fear. Something has got to give. We’re forever at a standstill, a faceoff which one of us will lose. Everything.


Hadley Beckett’s quest for wedded bliss perseveres.

A dare. My intrepid sportscaster boyfriend, Finn Wilder, keeps me guessing and on edge, especially when it comes to jumping off bridges or marrying me. Infamously anti-marriage, he promised me he’d consider taking me to the altar if I give him more time. Done. We’re in our thirties, and the sand is running out of the hourglass. My clock is blaring. Diving headfirst and setting marriage aside for the moment, I try a different angle, and I shove my persuasion skills into overdrive to convince Finn to at least have a baby with me. Little did I know his issues run deeper than I ever imagined.

It’s an uphill climb ahead, but I can’t back down. I have too much to lose, and executing my plan will be a leap of faith or folly. Still, I’m determined to triumph, but so is Finn Wilder. No matter what it takes.


What would you do if the love of your life gave you the keys to the kingdom, but won’t let you in?

An ultimatum. At the end of my rope, I’m ready to grab Finn Wilder’s world by the bridge and stop the never-ending merry-go-round that is our unknotted life together. Since Finn is all about walking on the wild side but never down the aisle with me, I have the ultimate test to prove me more daring than the daredevil himself. A dare to make or break us forever.

Throwing down the gauntlet, I’ll either celebrate supreme victory over his heart or suffer the cruelest defeat at the very hand I hold.


For Hadley Beckett, the road to hell is paved with good intentions and sticks of dynamite.

A renewal. I have a long way to go on the heartbreaking and unforgiving path to redemption as I travel it alone. As I recover, my family and friends rally, each having their own idea of how to help me heal, as honest or misguided they may be. No one knows what I need. I thought I did, but Finn Wilder proved me wrong in every way possible when he left me at the worst time in my life.

Hang on for this uncertain journey as I discover truths I never knew existed, and lies I thought were my reality. Though, this isn’t my finale. Far from it. This is the ignition to an explosive new beginning.


After unimaginable devastation, Hadley Beckett rises from the ashes.

Survival. Finn Wilder did not break me, despite recent events. I’ve only grown stronger and more determined. I fell in love. Amid the ashes, Dash Calder threw me a lifeline, giving me the will to fight my way through the dark chaos. I even planned a new future with him until my BFF, Greg Rodwell, conjured a ghost from Baltimore, throwing my life into another tailspin. Loving two men, when my past and present collide, I must make a final decision and break a heart, even if it’s mine caught in the crossfire.


Love ruined Jared Beckett. Now, it’s his turn to devastate.

I’m not one to mince words. I only have one use for females, being burned one too many times. I wasn’t always this way. In high school, I thought I met The One, but she stomped on my heart. I never recovered.

Returning to Annapolis, my past heartache slams into me, dredging up the bitterness. I’m an expert at building walls, figurative and literal, but when she needs my help, I’m all in. Giving her the keys ensures I’m in control this time, even if she’s in the driver’s seat. I’m only in it to hit it and quit it, crushing her this time, no matter how much she begs for mercy. And she will because I refuse to be her victim again. She created this broken and vengeful monster, and my relentless payback is years overdue.

The Keys to Jericho was chosen as an “Official Selection” in the Romance category of Apple Literary’s 2017 Annual Book Awards.

Jared Beckett let his high school love slip through his fingers when she moved on without him. When fate brings them together again, he discovers a past tragedy that changes everything. Can he finally make peace with his past, or is revenge really best served ice cold?


Greg Rodwell will shatter your heart and wreck your soul.

The wrecked myth, foul-mouthed man, and legendary screw-up, who’s in love with his married best friend. That’s me. It’s my fault she married the local douchebag, faux celebrity who hates my guts. Now she has his baby.

Or so she thinks.

Although we didn’t go there, that innocent night we had together wasn’t so virtuous on my part. The truth would not only blow her mind but rock our world. Beyond twisted, I have wrongs to right, a woman to win, and vows to break. My heart be damned.

UNSCREWED is the start of a new series, but you’ll achieve maximum shock and awe if the Wild Sparks Series and The Keys to Jericho are read first.


Ren Alexander’s Rebel Rook is a provocative, riveting, and poignant contemporary romance written in K. Bromberg’s Everyday Heroes Worlds project.

Dylan McGrath, a rookie cop with something to prove and everything to lose.

Dumped. There, I said it. The day after my twenty-first birthday, my girlfriend of two years ditched me in front of an audience. Drowning my sorrows in a park, a cop throws me into the back of a cruiser. It’s not my first ride or my greatest achievement, angering legendary law enforcement swarming my family tree, but who cares? Smelling fresh blood, self-righteous, law-abiding family and friends gang up on me, drawing a line in the sand. Doing the unthinkable yet inevitable, we strike a deal, but not without a fight.

Graduating from the police academy, I clash with field training officers who hand me off faster than a live grenade. Though my job is to enforce laws, I love to break the rules and refuse to follow any leader. On the verge of embarrassing the revered Malones again, I’m reassigned to the Dragon, a tough sergeant who hates me for existing on her dime.

Vowing to nail training, a gorgeous waitress blows that notion to smithereens. Distrusting the police, Natalia Welch wants nothing to do with me. Because of her horrific past, I’m told to steer clear or fail training. But I can’t, and Natalia and I grow closer until she freaks out about our small age difference. However, the more she avoids me, the more we crave each other, leading to a passionate explosion that could end my career or her life.
