(My Way Series, #1)
SYNOPSIS:

Whose parents abandon them in a trashy trailer when they are five years old? Oh Yeah! Mine do!
 
Hey Hoochies! I’m Milly, and I am tired of taking kicks to the gut. A broken family, an asshole husband and the loss of loved ones have left me crying Uncle, and declaring a serious case of the Fuck-Its! 
 
I had my heart broken, stomped on and shattered before I ever started on my journey to find my little piece of happiness. With a bucket list, a ’66 Ford and wild dreams, I set out on an adventure that changed my life forever. 
 
I found Cree… 
 
A pirate with a little princess and they swept me off my ever lovin’ feet, filling my world with sprinkles, mac n’ cheese and the courage to live again. 
 
They forced my fragile heart to trust and love without fear. 
 
But the truth is, nobody’s past stays hidden forever. It’s an invisible monster waiting to attack and destroy. It has the capability to ruin everything you’ve worked to set right. 
 
All it takes is one final blow to the gut to end everything…

TRIPP
(My Way Series #2)
SYNOPSIS:

Lacey’s Story…
Covering up pain is easy. It’s keeping it tucked away that’s hard. I’ve always needed the cover of tattoos to hide the nasty past that leached its way into me, tainting me beneath my skin.
Not the shiny, trendy tats, but the ugly broken kind, meant to keep the world at bay. If they weren’t enough, then my piercings, foul mouth and crazy hair usually did the trick. Life had taught me to never follow the rules, because when you do, you get burned.
My life was perfectly imperfect until Tripp…
Our relationship is what most would describe as fuel meeting fire. We were both hell bent on burning each other to the ground. Tripp was sexy as hell, a charismatic beast, and soon became one of my best friends. We shared a love of ice cream and tattoos as we blazed our own path that could only lead to a beautiful train wreck.
The only question left is, will we set the countryside ablaze with our hot tempers and foul mouths? Or will we paint our own happy ending filled with all the gushy shit normal people crave?

COVER REVEAL: My Soul Keeper by Ker Dukey

Shamar

Not seeing Simone all week left my craving for her unsatisfied and vibrating my blood with anticipation for when I could feed it again. New charges have kept me busy and the temptation to touch her when she was reaching out to me in her bedroom after the party nearly consumed and broke me. Distance was what I needed but now I need to see her again. I waited long enough; I have proven to myself that I’m strong and not a fool to human weakness.
Sensing her soul I appear close to her. She’s in a shop so I go to the coffee stool positioned opposite and order a drink. The girl serving me blushes when she hands me my change. I can sense her attraction to me; it radiates off her in waves and has her embarrassed because of it. I smile with a wink at her and drop the change into the tip jar. I hear her intake of breath and laugh quietly to myself as I turn and almost spill my cup onto Simone’s chest.
“Oh my go…,” she gasps and her eyes twinkle with recognition. A smile falls over her face, stilling my heartbeat. “We meet again.” Her soft musical voice flows.
“I’m sorry I nearly scalded your…” I look down at her impressive chest and back to her face, which is tinted with the pink flush from my gaze.
“Body,” I offer with a shake of my head, which earns me a giggle. It nearly floors me. Pulling a stray hair from her mouth, she watches my movements. Parting her lips, her tongue darts out to moisten them; I caress her bottom lip with the pad of my thumb, taking the hair with it across to her cheek. There’s an electrical storm erupting inside my body. Her eyes are glazed; everything around us has fallen into silence, we are the only two who exist in this moment.
My thumb retraces it journey to her mouth with a press of her lips she kisses it. My whole body crackles and tingles. She’s turned on and it magnifies my own arousal. Leaning forward without thought of consequence, I touch my lips to hers. Her body melts into mine; the taste of her red lips is like the sweetest forbidden fruit. The warmth of her tongue slips into my mouth and I meet it with my own: grasping her face deepening the kiss. Her supple body moulds further into mine, her breasts pushing against my chest, our hips pushing into each other’s. The whole world falls away and I feel like Heaven has claimed me and this is it; she is my Heaven.
“Holy shit!” a voice shouts out, ringing in my ears.
Simone pulls away, breathless, her pouty red lips still slightly open and swollen from my kiss. Her eyes roam my face with bewilderment. “That was…”
“Amazing,” I finish her sentence.
Her friend grabs her shoulders and turns her from my gaze. It breaks the spell. I notice we have gathered an audience as were standing in the middle of the mall making out like we were in a private room. She looks around and drops her face to the floor, embarrassed.  Lifting her chin, I whisper, “Never look down Simone, only up.” I bring my lips to her forehead before walking away once again.
COVER REVEAL: My Soul Keeper by Ker Dukey

I love losing myself in an authors world and create them for my fans.

PURCHASE LINKS
EXCERPT:

        Turned out Gary Steele from Music Line did have a job for me.  I almost lost my shit when he said Blow hole was looking for a replacement guitarist to finish their tour with them.  Fucking Blow Hole!  As in some of my favorite music to play.  
          I knew the chords to their songs better than any other band.  I liked their sound and I’d always been able to pick up their pace right away.  I could hardly believe my luck.  So when he told me they wanted me to come to their condo in Los Angeles to audition, I was all over that shit.
         I called Shay to bring me some gas money, told her why I needed it, listened to her scream on the other line, and then i drove entirely too fast to the address Gary gave me.  I pulled up around the corner and changed my clothes in the backseat of my car before going inside the massive building the boys lived in.
         When i finally made it to the top floor, I stood in front of the door and convinced myself that ringing the doorbell was the best thing I could do no matter how badly my nerves were jumping around.  I’d never auditioned before since I’d never played for any other reason than I loved it, and I couldn’t lie.  I was scared.
       When I finally worked up the nerve, I reached out and rang the doorbell.  I stood there waiting for someone to answer the door, but no one came.  I rang the bell once more, and the door opened quickly.
         “Can I help you?”  It was Finn, the lead singer.
          Everyone who loved music knew who Finn was.  His voice was soulful.  When he sang, he put so much emotion behind it you could almost believe he was living his lyrics.  He was raspy and deep, and I’d be lying if I said he wasn’t attractive.
          He was taller in person, and honestly, I expected more muscles, but that didn’t take away from his eyes or those lips that girls seemed to get wet over.  He leaned against the doorframe with his arms crossed.  A black shirt with cut-off sleeves covered his chest yet revealed his tatted arms, and a pair of drawstring sweats hung from his hips with loose ties that brought my eyes to his crotch.
          Quickly, I looked back up at him and my cheeks turned red when his expression told me he’d caught me looking.  Turning away, I adjusted my guitar case and shook the thoughts from my head.  I wasn’t one to get star struck… ever, but Finn was the real deal.
          Looking back up at him, the question in his eyes told me I needed to speak or he was going to close the door in my face.
          I’m here for the audition.”  My voice cracked and I wanted to slap myself.
          I needed to snap out of it.
          I adjusted the guitar strap on my shoulder to show him I wasn’t messing around.
          “You’re kidding, right?”  His right brow popped up in challenge.
          I didn’t have time for the whole females can’t play bullshit I knew was coming.  So I went in for the kill.
          “Do I look like I’m kidding?  Is the work jokester tattooed across my forehead?  yes, I’m a chick.  I have tits and a clit, but I have bigger balls than any man you know, and I can play the fuck out of a guitar.  Now are you going to keep wasting my time, or are you going to invite me in to play?”
          His mouth popped open in a wide, shocked smile.  Then he chuckled to himself and stepped aside.
          “Then by all means, come in.”
          The space was sleek and clean considering it was the home of a bunch of rockers.  Abstract red-and-black paintings of different instruments covered white walls, and the place smelled like pot and beer.
          The place was huge.  I followed behind Finn through three sets of doors until we were in a sitting room, and then I set my guitar case on the counter that split living room from the kitchen.
          A white, leather section filled the room.  Eyes stared back at me as I entered behind Finn and instantly I recognized the drummer, Chet, and the bass player, Tiny.  Finn left the room, leaving me in a silent uncomfortable moment.
          Taking a seat on the edge of the couch, I kept my bitch face on.  chet grinned at me from across the room and nodded at me as he licked his lips.  His tongue piercing clicked against his teeth.  He was the colorful one of the group.  Tattoos and piercings everywhere.  I did, however, seriously dig his fauxhawk.
          I’d been looking at him too long, and he was enjoying the attention.  He was definitely the playboy of the group.  I’d heard the rumors about him and how he struck his cock in anything wet.  I rolled my eyes and turned my head, and then my eyes connected with the bass player’s.
          Tiny’s name was a joke considering there was nothing small about the man.  He was huge.  His thick tattooed arms were crossed.  A look of absolutely no tolerance was plastered on his face.  Quiet and mysterious was his game.  Every band had one, and I usually dealt best with them, but something about the way he looked at me made me feel nervous.
          His dark-brown hair was buzzed short and faded into as set a sideburns that melted into his light mustache and goatee.  My eyes shifted to his lips and again, I wanted to slap myself.  It was unlike me to even notice the things I’d noticed since I stepped into the den of sin, also known as the home of Blow Hole, and I wasn’t about to let the disgusting pheromones that lingered in the air get to me.
          Tiny’s dark, angry eyes dug into mine and I suddenly felt exposed.  I sat up and ran my fingers through my hair to make sure I had no strays poking out, and the I turned away from him.  Even without looking at him, I could feel his gaze in the side of my face.  I didn’t like it.
          Just when I was close to telling him off, Finn came back into the room and crashed onto the couch.  Behind him, Zeke, the lead guitarist, came limping in.  A cast covered his picking hand and instantly I felt for him.  I couldn’t imagine what it would be like to not be able to play.  He looked at me in confusion as he sat down.
          As far as I was concerned, Zeke was one of the best guitarists I’d ever heard.  His technique was unusual, but the sounds that came from his strings were amazing.  I’d practiced his sound since the first time I’d heard them play on the radio.  I’d once see them from afar in concert at a bar in Los Angeles, but the boys were playing bigger venues these days.
          “So where’s the replacement guitarist?  Zeke asked in aggravation.  
          The room filled with laughter like I was a joke, and it pissed me off.  I stood and crossed my arms to show them I wasn’t dicking around.
          “That would be me,” I said sternly.
          Zeke looked me up and down without a drop of sexual awareness in his gaze, and I appreciated the fact that he was simply sizing me up, not checking me out.  It probably had something to do with the petite blond that had followed him into the room.
          “Is that so?” he asked.
          He was acting cocky, and honestly, he had every right to be.
          “Yep.  Want me to play or what?” I asked.
          Everything depended on this job and while I knew some would call me stupid for being such a bitch, I knew the boys would appreciate it.  I’d been a part of their world before.  I knew all about the girls that chased rockers around with their legs open.  I was sure it was refreshing to have a woman in their presence who didn’t drool all over them.  I’d definitely checked them out, but I wasn’t the drooling type.  Not to mention, I knew band boys weren’t for me–at all.
          Zeke looked around the room at the rest of the guys.  “Is this some kind of joke?” he asked.
          Again, the boys burst out in laughter, which did nothing but make me madder.
          “It’s not a fucking joke.  Quit being a chauvinistic asshole.  Either you want me to fucking play or not.  say something and quit wasting my goddamn time,” I snapped.
          His stern expression cracked into an appreciative smile.  “Then play,” he said with a careless shrug.
          Stepping over to my guitar case, I flipped it open and pulled out my baby.  It was candy apple-red Les Paul from my dad.  I barely played it, but I thought of this audition as a special occasion.  The boys of Blow Hole didn’t need to see my normal guitar.
          I strapped it on, took a deep breath, and began to play.  My fingers dug into the strings and I closed my eyes and let go of everything.  Rips and grinds filled the condo, bouncing off the walls and shaking the windows.  I mimicked Zeke’s playing perfectly.  I even ripped through his unique chords that other guitarists seem to have a hard time with.
          I played an entire song and no one stopped me.  When I was done, I unhooked the strap and set my guitar back in its case.  The room around me was silent, and when I looked up, looks of shock stared back at me.
          The only girl in the room, the tiny blonde with ice-blue eyes, began to clap.
          “That was amazing!” she said with a smile.
          I nodded at her compliment and turned my attention back to Zeke.  He stared at me with angry eyes.  That was his thing.  I don’t think I’d ever seen a real smile from him ever.
          “What did you say your name was again?” he asked.
          ” I didn’t.  No one bothered to ask.  My name’s Constance,” I responded.
          He looked around the room and then back at me.  The side of h is mouth lifted in an almost grin.  “Well, Constance, welcome to Blow Hole.”
          
 Blow Hole Lyrics

“The Addict”

The addiction you bring
It’s more than I can stand
Feeling your soulful depth
Why can’t you understand?
Bound by sick desires
Reaching for your sin
Body breathing fire
And I can’t let you in
Chorus:
Drugs don’t fail me now
For she’s forever gone
Despising all her strength
Against all that I’ve done wrong
Numb my aching heart
I’ll never be brand new
Finding who I am
In the high that comes from you
I’m addicted to your smile
Withdrawals and frowns are me
Knocked down and I am vile
While you’re forever free
Needing you right here
Jonesing for a dose
Panic turns to fear
Longing for your ghost
Chorus:
Drugs down fail me now
For she’s forever gone 
Despising her strength
Against all that I’ve done wrong
Numb my aching heart
I’ll never be brand new
Finding who I am
In the high that comes from you
