Author has written 9 stories for Romance.

Hi! I'm LeRato and I am just a someone who likes to write when a story comes into my head! I hope that you enjoy what I do! Just remember, I am not the best at writing, but wanting to improve! Who is LeRato!? Well, you could say I'm a random, hyper, loyal person. (Did I just describe a dog? Crap.) I am a compassionate person, who loves to listen to others, do things for others, hang with friends, and be a light in a dark room. I love smiling and being fun and laughing. LeRato is actually a Sesotho (A south African Language) word meaning, "love". I got it when I went there. :) I'm a hard worker, and a crazy girl. :D Love me, hate me, I'm still going to be me! :)

The Darkness Alpha's Mate reviews
"His reasons for rejecting you mean nothing to me. What I do know is that the Moon Goddess chose you to be my Mate." Alpha Roman Black stated as he reached out and ran his hand into my hair. When I refused to look at him he growled and gripped my hair just enough for me to look at him. Which turned me on even more. His golden eyes narrowed at mine. "You're fucking mine, Gwen."

Mysterious Marriage reviews
"What the hell are you doing?" he demanded to know. Amilee was on her knees beside him, shoving a huge blanket from his couch against him. She met his gaze with those grey eyes of hers. "It's a barrier. Don't cross it." she demanded back. "Why in the world would I cross it?" He asked. She glared. He grinned... It all made sense. "You really think I want to sleep with you? Sober?"

A Healing Whisper reviews
My heart beat faster in my chest as I saw his eyes boring into me. I shrieked and I flung myself back into the water, covering my body as much as I could with my arms. "Don't you knock?" I snapped. "Knock on what?" he asked, looking at me with a dumbfound look. "We are in the middle of the forest, remember?" "Knock on a tree or something!" I cried. He smirked, amused. Bastard.*INFO

MindReader AngDem reviews
I thought that things would go as planned. I'd sneak into the Kingdom, break into the Record Room, and find out the information I needed. Then finish off my mission. Yet, here I was, stuck day after day with this Angel, while at the same time being pursued by another, which happens to be his enemy. Somethings not right here. Lucky me! *Sarcasm* Spin off of A Healing Whisper!

Not Your Normal Fiction Romance reviews
"You're perfecting your new hobby I see." she narrowed her eyes at him. "What's that?" "Stalking." "You don't like that?"

He cornered her smirking and leaned in, she could feel his breath on her lips as her cheeks went red."Do you like me?"he asked seductively.
