Sneak Peek : A Wish For Us by Tillie Cole ~ Coming Soon

Cromwell
Brighton, England

The club pulsed as the beat I was pouring into the crowd took over their bodies. Arms in the air, hips swaying, eyes wide and glazed as my music slammed into their ears, the rhythmic beats controlling their every move. The air was thick and sticky, clothes slick to people’s skins as they crammed into the full club to hear me.
I watched them light up with color. Watched them get lost to the sound. Watched them shed whoever they’d been that day—an office worker, a student, a copper, a call-center worker—what the hell ever. Right now, in this club, most probably high off their faces, they were slaves to my tunes. Right here, in this moment, my music was their life. It was all that mattered as their heads flew back and they chased the high, the near nirvana I gave them from my place on the podium.
I, however, felt nothing. Nothing but the numbness the booze beside me was gifting me.
Two arms slipped around my waist. Hot breath blew past my ear as full lips kissed my neck. Spinning my final beat, I grabbed the Jack Daniels beside me and took a shot straight from the bottle. I slammed the bottle down and moved back to my laptop to mix in the next tune. Hands with sharp fingernails ran through my hair, pulling on the black strands. I tapped on the keys, bringing the music down low, slowing the beat.
My breaths lengthened as the crowd waited, lungs frozen as I brought them to a slow sway, readying for the crescendo. The epic surge of beats and drums, the insanity of the mix that I would deliver. I looked up from my laptop and scanned the crowd, smirking at seeing them on the precipice, waiting . . . waiting . . . just waiting . . .

Gypsy Beach

about the book

Single father, Ryan McNamara, returns to the only place he’d ever been happy, Gypsy Beach. This time he’s divorced, broken, but determined to make something of his life. Sienna Cooper is determined to forget Ryan, the last decade, and all of the hurt he’d left her with. She’s got enough spunk and gypsy fire in her soul to make this work. She’s going to run her grandmother’s inn and make it a success. But when a chance encounter throws them back together, the passions ignite and the past doesn’t feel so far out of reach. Can they rekindle the love they’d once had? Can he convince her that he never intends to walk away again? Will a potent dose of unending lust, a lifetime of love, and enough hot-blooded Gypsy spirit be enough to save them both?

EXCERPT

She had her head thrown back laughing as she raced across the wet sand. The setting sun lit the wildfire in her eyes, and Ryan would’ve followed her anywhere. The warm, foamy saltwater lapped at her toes, as anxious to touch some part of her beautiful body as he was. Launching himself forward, every muscle in his body propelled him towards her. He caught her hand and then leaned to scoop up her lithe form into his arms.

Every patch of her silky skin that connected with his sent a spark of electricity straight to his groin. His heart raced, but he kept running with her. Running away, maybe.

With a delighted squeal, she leaned in and clung tightly to his neck. Her long, thick hair, the color of black coffee with caramel and blonde ribbons spun through it from their summer in the sun, cascaded out over his left bicep, flying behind them as he raced her down the shores of Gypsy Beach. Her hazel eyes danced just for him.

Everything about her was a juxtaposition, as if she was in constant contention with herself. Wild, free, and living on the edge of an impulse that made his entire world spin. Every single thing about Sienna Cooper was perfect by his seventeen-year-old estimations.

“Stop running and put me down so I can kiss you, Ryan McNamara!” Her laughter and her order whipped around him in the salt-soaked wind, stirring and igniting every cell in his body.

“Yes, ma’am.” He set her on her feet and wasted no time mating their mouths. She was so sweet it was sinful, like spun sugar that melted in his arms. He’d fallen in love with her two summers before and spent every school year longing to get back to Gypsy Beach and back to Sienna.

His lips kept hers occupied while his hands tracked down her slender sides and then dipped into that bikini bottom that had been driving him to distraction all damn day. He cupped her backside, and when that simply wasn’t enough he kneaded her with greed.

A timid moan reverberated against his tongue as he slipped it between her lips, memorizing the heat, the way they swelled, the way they tasted, and the all-encompassing feeling of her body needy for him. That moment would have to last him until next summer.

Unable to stop himself, his right hand traversed the short distance from her sweet little backside to the perfect patch of skin between her thighs. She trembled, and her body rolled against his. He almost lost it all there on the deserted beach.

Her mound quaked as his thumb hesitantly explored. Her breath tangled in her throat, and her eyes closed in expectant ecstasy. He could feel the tender heat and the liquid desire gathering in preparation for him, and that night he was going to make a claim. They would be each other’s firsts, each other’s only if he had anything to say about it. He’d unite them in time and space, and it would be enough to get him through the next nine months of school five states away. It had to be enough.

“I love you Sienna Rose, and, God, baby, I need you. Before we have to leave tomorrow, I just need you. Stay with me tonight.”

With that sexy smirk and the fire that lived inside of her that always seemed to consume both of their souls, she followed him inside his parents’ beach house.

Author Bio

Mandy Lou Dowson was born and raised in a small town in Ireland, in 1983, and at this stage in life, she’s pretty sure the town won’t let her leave. Family is a huge deal to Mandy. She has three wonderful children (most of the time), and two Siberian Huskies who are each as naughty as the other – in fact, she’s sure they egg each other on in silly cartoon voices when nobody is looking.~

“Climb out the window and get covered in mud.”

“No, I did it last time. You do it!”

“R’uh, r’oh, here SHE is. Shhh.”

~

When she’s not writing, reading, or plotting her next book — or, you know, world domination – , she likes to relax with a few glasses of wine and some karaoke. You can usually find her procrastinating on social media of some sort, chatting to fans and talking nonsense.

Mandy started reading at quite a young age and her appetite for the written word has only increased with time. It would not be at all surprising to find her reading anything and everything from shampoo bottles to Edgar Allan Poe.

She is the author of three different genres of romance books. The Moon Bound series, which is in the Paranormal Romance genre, and is gathering rave reviews, and the Taboo series, which is Contemporary with a hint of the forbidden, the first of which has gathered very mixed reviews across the board, from one extreme to the other.She has also made a foray into Dark Romance recently, with her first title in the genre, Retribution, releasing in Summer 2015.

synopsis (2)

Love begins with attraction and our attraction started in an online chat room.

The beauty of the internet is you can be whoever you want to be.

I can let my guard down and show who I really am.

I’m no longer the shy girl who doesn’t fit in. I’m someone with a purpose, someone worth listening to.

I’m someone worth loving.

The world doesn’t need to know I’m only seventeen.

One little lie about my age isn’t going to hurt.

Eli is everything I’ve ever wanted in a relationship. He’s funny, sweet and so damn sexy. We’ve never met, but our connection is strong.

He wants to meet me and more than anything I want to meet him. I want to feel him in my arms, I want to see if our relationship is as strong in person as it is online.

So we do.

And it is.

It’s wonderful and amazing and everything I hoped it would be.

But in the chat room, I told a little white lie about something significant.

And lies, however big or small, always catch up with you.

Mine caught up with me in my History Classroom.

EXCERPT

“You’re lucky,” he said, his voice hitting that low, guttural tone that made her knees weak. “If we didn’t have people showing up in a couple hours, you and I wouldn’t leave this bedroom, today.” Leaning up on her toes, she brushed her lips against his, saying. “I’d say that makes me unlucky.” ~Heaven and Dylan, What the Heart Needs~

What the Heart Needs (Soulmate, #2)What the Heart Needs by Kelli McCracken

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What the Heart Needs picks up immediately where the first book ends. It’s been a couple of months since Heaven and Dylan officially met and they are spending every chance they get with each other to learn more about the bond they share.

“The more we give in to what the heart wants, the more we
get what the heart needs. My heart wanted you from the
first time I saw you. My heart needed you from the moment
we were born.”

As their love grows so does the momentum of those of those that want to break their bond. What the Heart Needs answers many questions left from the previous book, but those answered only bring out more questions. Secrets come out and Heaven and Dylan’s love is tested.

I was literally on the edge of my seat as the story went on. Half way through the book I couldn’t focus on anything else. Work…be damned. There was even a moment between Heaven and her sister,Faith, where I teared up with emotion. We see more of Layne and discover his true intentions toward Heaven.

As this story ended, I was left wanting more and rushed to begin the next book; What the Heart Takes. This is one of the BEST series I’ve read and I’m in absolute awe of Kelli McKracken’s writing. The stories are written with perfect description. For me as a reader, it was always difficult to visualize the scene written. That is not the case here. I can literally visual the characters’ movements as I read each word.

So much is comes to light in this book and I don’t want to give anything away. I can only say I LOVED it. Another 5 Stars for Kelli McKracken.

Her story began long before she started working at The Sky Launch…

Screw fairytales. The only reward Gwen Anders got from her rough childhood was a thick skin and hard heart. She’s content with her daily grind managing a top NYC nightclub—Eighty-Eighth Floor. So hers isn’t a happily ever after. She doesn’t believe in those anyway.

Then she meets J.C. 

The rich, smooth talking playboy is the sexiest thing that Gwen has ever encountered, but she’s not interested in a night-in-shining latex. But when a family tragedy pushes her to the brink, it’s J.C. who’s there to teach her a new method of survival, one based on following primal urges and desires. His no-strings-attached lessons require her to abandon her constant need for control. Her carefully built walls are obliterated. 

Gwen discovers there’s a beautiful world outside her prison. Freedom is exhilarating—and terrifying. When she starts to feel something for J.C., she fears for her heart. Especially as she realizes that he has secrets of his own. Secrets that don’t want to set him free.

Months later, Angela receives a call that changes their lives forever. The call closes the door on their father’s disappearance, but sets in motion a new set of dangers and complications, including the powerful, and mysteriously connected fashion mogul, Antonio Mancini.

Antonio is attractive, remote, and very much in control. He quite literally holds the key to their security and wellbeing in his hands. He offers Angela a job, and the means to repay her father’s debts… but the conditions require her to step way outside her normal boundaries.

In desperation, Angela accepts the new challenges before her. Now she must battle her growing attraction for Antonio, and conquer her own fears and secrets. The stakes are high – she and her sister could lose everything if she doesn’t follow the rules to this game he’s set up.

Suggar House Omnibus - Blast Banner copy

The Sugar House Novellas – Omnibus Edition

by Pavarti K Tyler

Sugar House Omnibus - 3D

 

 

Evolved Publishing presents a special Omnibus Edition of “The Sugar House Novellas,” featuring novellas 1-3, a bonus short story, and a bonus interview with the author.

Erotica, Erotic Romance, Adults Only

Enter the world of The Sugar House. Here you’ll meet the illustrious Madam Janice Cane and her brood of men and women who will fulfill your every fantasy. But can they find a way to fulfill their own?

Sugar & Salt

After over a decade working in the sex industry, Janice Cane retains no illusions about the nature of relationships. Everyone lies and everyone wants something. Still, a part of her longs for a connection.

Speed-dating becomes her addiction, a place to find a man for the night when she needs a quick fix, and her last hope that true love may still be waiting around the next corner. When a mysterious man entices both her intellect and her lust, she becomes entangled in an affair more complicated than she’d expected.

Protecting Portia

Jackson Grady met the love of his life. Unfortunately, he was running drugs for a pimp named Sasha at the time, who asked him to keep an eye on their new acquisition from Russia, the bedraggled beauty named Portia. She touched his heart and forced him to confront the kind of man he’d become.

Now, Portia and Jackson both work at The Sugar House. He continuously looks out for her, and longs for her with his every breath, but knows he is unworthy of such an angel. What will Portia do to win not only the heart, but also the body, of the man she loves?

Dual Domination

Caitrin’s a Dominatrix at the high class brothel The Sugar House, and an elegant burlesque performer with leagues of men and women falling at her feet. The Sugar House is her home, her hunting ground, but she’s never felt like she belonged. Only with her childhood friends and fellow deviants, Donovan and Raef, has she found her place.

Donovan prefers his women on the submissive side, and likes to create erotic art out of rope and the female form. When a crisis at The Sugar House puts a friend in trouble, he must confront his deeper feelings for the one woman he’s told himself he can’t have – Caitrin.

With their friendship in turmoil and The Sugar House on the verge of collapse, can these two friends find their way to each other?

EXCERPT

The restaurant sizzles with life—couples engaged in whispers and friends exchanging stories in exuberant tones. The citrus and black decor should be gauche, but instead sets an intimate atmosphere.

“I have three sisters.” Salt says.

“What are their names?”

“Hope, Faith, and Chastity.” He rattles the names off as if it were obvious.

“They are not.”

“They are.”

“And you got Devon?”

“Apparently my father wanted to name me Daemon, but my mother fought back.”

“Are your parents particularly religious?”

“No, just particular.”

As they chat, the crowd at the bar becomes dense, and the hostess maneuvers through the waiting diners until she arrives at their table. “Mr. Salzmann, the chef would like to offer you a complimentary plate of our newest dish, an Asian Fusion rack of lamb. I’m sure you and your date will enjoy it.”

He raises one eyebrow at Janice, gauging her interest. “Sounds lovely.” He speaks to the hostess, but his eyes never leave Janice.

“Who are you?” She asks once the hostess leaves.

“What do you mean?”

“Come on, Salt. Not everyone gets immediate seating at a place like Tahlia’s. The chef knows you by name? That’s not how things work in the real world.”

“As opposed to what world?”

“Whatever world you live in. Give me a straight answer for once—no more fucking around.”

“You know, there’s something amazingly sexy about a woman who isn’t afraid to swear.”

“You’re doing it again.”

“And you are so delicious when you’re agitated.”

“I’m just about agitated enough to leave.”

“Really?”

“Yes, I don’t like being fucked with.”

“I find straight answers usually lead to conversations of a more serious nature than I am in the mood for tonight. I’ll make you a deal: you stay for dinner, we’ll laugh and chat, and if you want all the details about my boring life, I’ll tell you next Thursday. Just show up for speed-dating ten minutes early. I’ll be at the bar.”

She studies him, weighing her hesitancy to reveal the truth about herself against her need to be in control. What could it hurt?

She picks up her wine. “Fine, I’ll play, but only if you answer three yes or no questions.”

“Meeting conditions with conditions?” He reaches for a sesame rice cake appetizer.

“I have limits to what I can handle.”

“All right.” He sets his snack down on the bread plate, and folds his hands on the table. “I’m in.”

“Have you ever killed anyone?”

“Purposefully or accidentally?”

“Either.”

“No.”

“Then why did you ask me to specify?” She looks at him with skepticism.

“Wondering what your limits are, exactly.”

 

She rolls her eyes. “Are you currently married or committed in any way to anyone?”

“No.” His answers come easy, falling like truth.

“Last one.”

“Hit me.”

“Have you ever bought or sold a human being?”

He recoils and squints his eyes, as if trying to make out a distant shape. “What kind of question is that?”

“The kind I require an answer to.”

“Jesus, what the hell is wrong with the men you date?”

She shrugs. Used to disappointment, she’s ready to walk away. “If you don’t tell me, I’m going to assume the worst.”

“No, I have never bought or sold a human being. Fuck.”

“Good, then you get a reprieve on full disclosure until next Thursday.”

He leans back in his chair and studies her again. “You are an extremely interesting woman.”

“So you’ve said.” She takes another sip of wine.

Excerpt

“Do you think I’m any less addicted?  I can’t wait to see you; I think about you all the time, obsessed with protecting you and possessing you.  I have this insane need to pleasure you until you beg me to stop and my name falls from lips that are swollen from my kisses.  I want you to forget everything but me … to make you forget anyone else you’ve ever been with.  I need to mark you, to own you body and soul-” he paused when Angel’s brow shot up in mock reprimand, but still, he could see her defiance battling with how she felt.  He smiled softly, letting out a small huff, then continued to bare his soul.  “-until you’ll never want another man to touch you.  Never again.  Because if you let that happen, I’ll be destroyed; it will literally kill me.  If anything happened to you, I don’t know what I’d do.  I can tell you I love you, but it’s not enough to explain it.”  His chest pushed into hers as he took a deep breath, and she could feel his heart pounding above hers.  “I’m- fucking consumed.”

kahlen bio

Kahlen Aymes

I’m a single mother of one daughter, Olivia. She’s amazing in every way.

I was born in the Midwestern United States and educated at a private university where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Business Administration.

I’ve always been creative with art, music, theater and writing. I decided to write a story as a way to build a network for a business venture. The reader support of my stories and my overwhelming desire to find out where my characters would take me, soon had the writing morphing the business. No one was more shocked than I. When readers began nominating my work for online awards, it took my breath away and only made me love it more. It soon became clear that writing was, and should be, my focus.

Bend don’t Break

Skye Callahan

Genre: Dark Erotic Romance

Available November 18, 2014

Synopsis

I thought I was done.

my End

I couldn’t take my eyes off her as the bullet tore through me, leaving me with nothing but the hope that I had done enough to save her. The darkness tried to engulf me—to brand me as its own and drag me to my fate.

my Darkness

Waking to see her tear-stained face above me was enough to make my heart stutter. I was alive and free from that place—but not from the toll it had taken on my mind and body.

my Strength

My story should have ended, but one woman kept standing in the way of that. The only way I could have her was to find a way to put the darkness to rest.

 My Review

Irrevocable should be read first

I have to say…not many sequals out do the previous novel, but Bend, Don’t Break was most definitely did, in my book.  In Irrevocable, we get a story of “Silver” being thrown into a really bad situation.  Her only ally is the man that claimed her as his slave.  There we saw her strength and how no matter what she went through, she never truly became a victim.  Her situation didn’t break her, but made her stronger.

But what happens when someone has to be the bad guy?  He has no choice but to sit back and see what goes on. Become a part of it all the while, he’s trying to figure a way out??  That’s what we get with Bend, Don’t Break.  We now get the story from James’ POV.  Picking up where Irrevocable left off, James and Rose are trying to put the pieces back together after their time at the Retreat.  Each struggling with how to adjust back to normal life, but James’ situation is so much more complex than Rose’s.  How do you come back from playing a villain for so long?  James battles with himself so much over the things he had to do and the guilt just eats away at him, especially everything he inflicted onto Rose.

Aside from trying to get back to normal, James is pulled back in as they investigate more into those involved with the Retreat.  The emotions that James goes through are so solid and palpable in this story that my heart literally ached for him.  He tries so hard to come to terms with everything and reconcile who he was with who he became while being at the Retreat.

Bend, Don’t Break far exceeded my expectations and left me in awe with the characters and it’s story content.  Filled with suspense, passion and a very strong love, this was a 5 star read for me.

 

 

Excerpt #1

“She’s fine,” Dr. Combs assured me. “But I don’t think it would be in the best interest for either of you to see each other. You put yourself in a dangerous situation with her.”

Put myself? Last I checked I wasn’t the one to drag her into the Retreat. “I kept her alive and slightly less broken than she would have otherwise been.”

“The two of you adapted to a horrible situation, found comfort in each other—”

I didn’t want to hear it.

Stockholm Syndrome.

I wondered if the captor could get it, too. Was I even the captor? It seemed like I’d lost control of the situation long ago.

But I’d still been the one to beat her, rape her, bend her will.

Just like she’d bent mine.

I wanted her back so bad I couldn’t breathe. The more we talked about it, the worse it got. The harsh reality of it all forced me to face the possibility that I had to walk away if I wanted to do what was in her best interest.

“How long until I can talk to Trent?” I tried again, drawing back a modicum of control by changing the course of the conversation.

Dr. Combs sighed and snapped her portfolio closed. “If it’ll get you to talk, I’ll make the arrangements on one condition.”

I’d already sold my soul, there weren’t many more concessions I had left to give.

“I need to know you’re not going to try to reach out to Rose—or anyone else.”

Did that mean there was a chance she’d see me? Or was Dr. Combs convinced I’d stalk and abduct her anyway? That was quite a laughable possibility, but some sick-as-fuck part of me considered it.

 

Book Trailer

Excerpt #2

She came around the corner on hands and knees, and I saw her face visibly pale as soon as she saw the chain in my hands, but she approached anyway. Stubborn, belligerent, and brave.

Three traits that’d get her killed.

I dropped the chain to the floor next to the bed. “Come up here.”

She paused, but finally climbed onto the bed and straddled my lap as I directed, and damned if I didn’t feel like I was losing it. The bruises from her encounter with Gabe’s buffoons were starting to set in, but she pulled back and shut herself off as I examined her.

Such a degrading way to make sure nothing was broken, but if she didn’t believe my act, no one else would either. I realized the plug in her ass was probably growing even more uncomfortable with time, especially if she hadn’t experimented with them before.

Not that I could ask since I wasn’t supposed to care.

“Hate me all you want, Sugar,” I said, hoping to get her to walk a fine line between trust and fear where she might listen. “I’m the only ally you have.”

“Ally…?” she whispered, “You’re going to hurt me.” Her eyes filled again, but she blinked it away and held back just like she had in the basement, and I couldn’t face her any longer.

“I am,” I lifted her off of me, flipping her over. “Ass up.”

Even though she kept up her protective walls, I saw her body visibly relax when I pulled the plug free and sat it on the side table. It was going to be hard enough for her to kneel through dinner. I hoped the threat of it might make her more compliant.

The mix of vulnerability countered with her impossible stubbornness had an aphrodisiac effect on me. I had been convinced this was the only way we’d survive, but for the first time, I truly considered the effect it was going to have on both of us.

Playlist

Ten Fun Facts

  1. I love cars, and I write most of my books while watching Top Gear. I’d prefer the sound of an Aston Martin over any music sound track.

  2. I once based a character in a story on my husband, and the character died. He never lets me live it down, but don’t bother trying to figure it out, I never released that book.

  3. I’m not terribly good at being girly–I don’t wear makeup, only own 4 pairs of shoes, and I’ve never had a manicure.

  4. I learned to handle a gun before I learned long division.

  5. While most of the people in my graduate research classes were buried in books, I was glued to the TV researching the evolving portrayal of “Indianness”.

  6. I have a phobia of crickets.

  7. Yuengling is my weakness.

  8. I have penguin stuff everywhere–even a penguin snuggie because I couldn’t resist.

  9. I enjoy long walks in the cemetery.

  10. Nearly everyone in my family has seen a ghost in the hallway in the house I grew up in, and I was told by a Bigfoot expert that the sounds I used to hear outside my bedroom at night were likely the cries of Bigfoot.

Synopsis

Goodreads

Sometimes when you can’t go back, the only way out is to descend into the darkness.

my Captor

When I woke in that place, I just wanted to survive. But survival came at a cost, for which they demanded my will and body.

         my Master

With pain came acceptance. Fully-dependent on the man who claimed me, I learned to appreciate what I had-life and relative safety.

                   my Protector

I watched him spill blood and tend my injuries. With betrayal came a revelation.

The only way out was to bring them all down or die trying.

Dark, sensual, and at times overwhelming, Irrevocable will bring you on a dark journey that you will never forget.” Shayna Renee’s Spicy Reads TOP PICK of 2014!

Master…

 

Being that person, that man, is how I define myself, how I allow the

rest of the world to define me as well. And now, with a terrible loss

shredding me inside out and someone trying to destroy my family to

punish me, control is more important than ever. It is everything. It is

what I need. It is all I need. Or maybe I just need…her.

Excerpt #2

“Mark.”

I squeeze my eyes shut as Crystal’s voice stirs an odd sensation in my chest that somehow eases the ache in my gut. Desire rockets through me, and I tell myself it’s about fucking and control. I need it, and she’s my safe zone outside of the club.

“Are you okay?” she asks when I do not speak.

When our gazes meet the jolt is as unwelcome as it is intense. She feels it, too. I see it in the slight widening of her eyes, the way she curls her fingers into her palms on the counter across from me.

“You were furious with me a few minutes ago,” I say. “Why are you standing here now?”

“I’m not one-dimensional. I can be furious and worried at the same time.”

Unable to squash my intrigue over the unknowns of her past, I agree. “No, you aren’t one-dimensional. Nor are you simply a rich girl who wants to prove something to daddy.”

“Thank you.” She crinkles her brow. “I think.”

We fall into silence, a hum of electricity charging between us. “I still go back to you saying ‘The End’ to me a few minutes ago. You meant it this time, too. That doesn’t translate to you standing here.”

“Neither does much of what you do, where I’m concerned.”

“You’re absolutely right. It doesn’t. What does, though, is sticking to ‘The End.’ What doesn’t is how badly I want to drag you into another room and fuck you right now.”

She shakes her head. “It’s not me you want. It’s someone who’ll sign a contract and be your outlet and bridge to control. You left that bedroom thinking about the impossibility of a reason for Rebecca’s death, beyond your self-blame and guilt. You need that bridge.”

There is banked pain lacing her words, and a hint of the earlier anger I’d seen in her eyes. I could make those things go away by telling her what she’s said isn’t true. I could tell her she’s gotten under my skin. But I don’t even know who the man beneath the surface is right now. I’ve destroyed two women. Crystal doesn’t deserve to be number three.

“Is everything okay?” my father asks from the doorway, repeating Crystal’s earlier words.

“Yes,” I say, my gaze lingering on Crystal before I push off the counter, hands going to my hips. “We’re ready to talk to Mom about what’s been going on.”

“We are?” Crystal asks, sounding surprised. “Tonight?”

“We can’t risk her finding out from somewhere else,” I explain.

“She’d feel betrayed,” my father adds.

Crystal gives a choppy nod. “Yes. I can see that. But I am not looking forward to telling her.”

“None of us are,” my father says. “Right now, though, she wants us all to eat together. And since it’s the best chance we have of getting some food down her, I say we wait until after we’ve finished. I don’t want to jeopardize her appetite.”

“I’m all for getting food down her,” I say. “She’s skin and bones.”

“I’ve been force-feeding her what she does eat,” Crystal adds. “The nurse suggested some high-calorie protein shakes. I tried that, but she hates them.”

My father starts to turn, then pauses. “By the way, Crystal, Larry Prescot called me just before you got here. You won him over. Thanks for calming him down before he got to Dana.”

“My pleasure.”

He disappears into the hallway and I grab Crystal’s arm. “How okay is Prescot?”

“Very.”

“How can you be sure?”

“I threw out my father’s name—something that I normally would never do.”

“But?”

“I was on the phone with my father when the receptionist buzzed to tell me that Prescot had arrived for our meeting. My father overheard and insisted that I drop his name. I reminded him that I’m adamant about succeeding on my own merits. But I’m also not one to foolishly ignore resources when backed into a corner, and I was. Prescot was being a total jerk. I knew we were about to lose the business.”

“So you broke your rule.”

“I did. And it was an amazing turnaround. Prescot suddenly remembered the many ways people have tried to paint him as a monster in the media, and became sympathetic rather than judgmental. I called my father afterward, and it turns out that Prescot enjoys the benefits of his secretary beyond her exceptional organizational skills, and his wife of twenty years doesn’t know.”

“But your father does.”

“Yes. And now, so do we.”

My lips curve. “Sounds like I owe you and your father a thank-you.”

“All you’d get in return from my father is a demand that I quit my job. He hates me working for anyone but him, especially now with all this bad press.”

“Is he afraid it will overflow to him?”

“No. He’s afraid I’ll get hurt.”

Me too, I think. Me too. “And what did you tell him?”

“I told him I’m his daughter, not his possession. He doesn’t own me any more than you do, and neither of you gets to claim responsibility for my happiness. That’s all mine.”

As she leaves the room, I stare after her in silent agreement. I’m not responsible for her happiness. But I’m not going to be responsible for her misery, either.

Nicole Langley’s #1 Crush has always been Gabriel Roberts, but settling for being a friendly acquaintance has had to be enough.

Then a hot summer day and an even hotter discovery pushes them over the lines of friendship, over the lines of unrequited desire, and into each other’s arms.

Will they indulge and move on? Or will this crush turn into something more, something deeper? Something that leaves loose ends begging to be tied…

Blurb

When illusions come to life, how do you tell what’s real?

My life ended when I came back from vacation. Death was at my doorstep. Everything ceased to exist. To protect myself, I pushed the memories away.

All I remember is him: Sebastian Brand, my savior.

I trust only him.

I am obsessed with him.

But all I know about him is his name.

Stuck in this mental institution, I try not to think about the terrible memories that lurk deep inside me. Sebastian is the only one who can help me forget. I don’t care that they say he doesn’t exist, I need Sebastian and I will find him, no matter the cost.

This is a prequel to the Delirious Series. These books should be read in order.

WARNING: This book contains very disturbing situations, strong language, drugs and alcohol, and graphic violence.

* Author’s note: This story will unfold over the span of multiple Volumes. Not all secrets will be spilled yet in this prequel.

His secrets will destroy her.

Taken.

Humiliated.

Used.

With his smart mouth, dirty talking and possessive behavior, Sebastian Brand has me hooked in the most shameless way. I’m obsessed with him. However, now that I’ve escaped the mental hospital, he seeks to control my every move.

The overwhelming aloofness in his attitude and darkness in his mind tells me there is more to this man than sheer dominance. Depravity is his playground and pain is a necessary evil.

Keeping me away was his first instinct.

Capturing me was his second.

Claimed by a man with the exterior of an angel and the mind of a brute, I will do anything to unveil his secrets and face my own demons.

A body in exchange for freedom. A heart in exchange for truth.

Life is never a given. Only a certain death.

This is Volume 1 in the Delirious Series, which contains 3 volumes and a prequel. These books should be read in order.

WARNING: This book contains very disturbing situations, strong language, drugs and alcohol, dubious consent, and graphic violence. Contains a cliffhanger that will make your eyes pop.

After her erotic romance novels become international bestsellers, writer Gillian Tate cannot enjoy her long-sought success once her husband files for divorce and she becomes the target of threats from a religious fringe hate group; but when she tries to find peace in the solitude of a remote lakeside cabin to complete the third novel in the trilogy, not only does she meet the man who can fulfill her secret desires, she also finds she hasn’t escaped danger by leaving the city. 

When the Adirondack town’s police chief Sam Taylor learns of the threats and checks in on the notorious author, he is surprised to find she is nothing like he would have expected from her erotic novels but everything he has imagined in his own fantasies.
