Synopsis

Hazel
I don’t know who I am anymore, or what I’m becoming. Time doesn’t exist in this godforsaken Hell I call my life. Every time I find a semblance of hope, it’s bled away. Just like I’m bleeding away. The longer he believes he’s won, the more I die inside. I may be nothing but a shell by the time this is over.

Cash
I failed her. I couldn’t keep her safe. Now I may lose her completely. We’re running against a clock controlled by a madman and we don’t know when he plans to end his game. Every minute that passes without finding him makes the thought of killing him that much sweeter.

Phil
I didn’t think it would be so easy. Pretty soon, my Snap will be on the streets and I’ll be living the dream. That is, after I take Cash out. With him gone, I’ll control not only the drug, but Hazel as well. If she listens, she will have a hell of a life. Right. Beside. Me.

*This series contains scenes of drug abuse, brutality, and rape. Reader discretion is advised.

Excerpt

My hand slips from his and I make my way to the kitchen. I look at the bottle and back to my glass for a moment before putting the bottle to my lips. The wine fills my mouth, and I gulp it down hoping it will drown the emotions swirling within me. But the lump in my throat remains and grows larger with every pull off the bottle. The more I swallow, the more it feels like I’m choking. I lower the bottle, letting it thunk on the counter top, and try to breathe through the panic attack building inside of me.

“I was infatuated with you.”

The rumble of his voice makes me clutch the counter, my breath caught in my chest. As much as I want to know, I can’t listen to it right now. It’s all too much to take in when I’m still coming to terms with what Phil did to me.

“The longer I watched you, the more I was drawn to you,” he continues, his voice getting closer. “You learn a lot about people when they don’t know you’re looking.” My back warms as the heat of his body gets closer. He places his hands on the counter, trapping me between his arms. “Want to know what I learned about you?”

I stare down at the counter, thankfully hidden by the curtain of hair falling around my face, and shake my head. Cash’s slight stubble on his jaw rubs against the side of my face as he leans closer, his chest grazing my back. His heart beats a rhythm that mine recognizes and tries to keep in tune with. I’d rather face Phil right now, because at least I know where I stand with him.

“You are selfless,” he says, disregarding me. “You’re happiest when those around you are happy. You have this need to help others without getting anything in return. But you’re too prideful to let anyone in and help you when you need it most. You push people away by putting the focus back on them and deal with shit that you shouldn’t have to deal with alone. And you do it all with the most beautiful smile I have every seen.” His arms drape gently around me, and he rests his head against mine. “It’s hard to find genuinely good people in the world,” he whispers. “Trust me, I know. I’ve spent my life watching people selfishly choose their needs over others. And I turned into one of them.”

Cash turns me around and cups the side of my face lifting it up to his. “I didn’t want this to happen. I wanted to do my job and come home. But I couldn’t stop thinking about you. I wanted what you gave everyone else freely. So I selfishly took it. I needed to see you smile at me like that and know I was the reason for it. And when you did, I couldn’t get enough.” He searches my eyes as he bares his heart to me. His mouth hovers over mine, bathing my lips in the warmth of his whiskey-scented breath with every word. “I wanted more. I thought I’d get it and walk away from you when this was over. But there’s a piece of me that thinks I deserve this…” His lips brush against mine tormentingly as the shaky words fall from his lips. “That I deserve you.”

Finley (Sunset Cove Series #1)

AMAZON US | AMAZON Universal

Finley-EllaFrank-CustomDesign-JayAheer2016-WM-Ebook-finalimage

It’s time to come home, Finn.

It’s been seven years since Daniel Finley left his hometown in Florida for the hustle and bustle of Chicago’s city life.

Since then, he’s worked hard for his position at the prestigious law firm Leighton & Associates, even when it’s caused distance and isolation from his family and friends. But that’s all about to change.

On his thirtieth birthday, he receives the one thing he never dared hope for. Something that was promised to him years earlier—a note. One simple sentence from the man he’s never been able to forget.

Six words will forever change the course of their lives.

Brantley Hayes has it all. Or so he thinks. When he first made the decision to take a job down in Florida, his family thought he was crazy. But, after years of living in the quiet beach town, he finally feels a sense of community. He’s surrounded himself with friends who are like family, has a job he loves, and owns a spectacular beachfront property that is his sanctuary.

Yet he still feels unfulfilled, as if a piece of the puzzle is missing, and he knows exactly which piece it is. On an impulse, he follows through with a promise he made years earlier. A promise to call home the one he sent away.

Nothing is as simple as it seems.

After years of separation, the former lovers are reunited, but Brantley wasn’t expecting to encounter the high walls now guarding Daniel’s heart.

Daniel may not be the same person he was when he left, but he knows that the first step to healing is the note in his hand.

Award winning author, Shelly Alexander grew up traveling the world, earned a BBA in Marketing, and landed a corporate job in Dallas, TX before marriage lured her to the beautiful Southwest. After growing up with four older brothers and having three sons of her own, she decided to escape her male-dominated world for some ‘girl time’ by reading romance novels. While reading in the New Mexico sunshine, she began to dream up love stories she’d like to write herself some day.

The years passed with her helping to run the family business, volunteering for every field trip and school function imaginable, and incalculable loads of dirty laundry generated by her three active boys. When she survived invasive breast cancer, she decided it was now or never and bought her first laptop so she could start writing down her stories.

Now she spends her days writing steamy romances while tending to two miniature schnauzers and a pet boa constrictor named Zeus. Her stories feature strong, independent heroines, hot heroes, and hefty doses of humor.

She still attends her three teenage boy’s sports events, school functions, and music performances, but they have learned to do their own laundry, providing her with more time to devote to writing.

Synopsis

Brecken Kane had been damn good at his job in the military. The
experience served him well when he moved into the private sector. Brecken’s new
security business is booming, and he’s settling into civilian life. Little does
he know his newest client’s request to save his daughter will change
everything.
 
Hadley Gresham knows she isn’t likely to make it out of the jungle
alive. She’d distanced herself from her parents after she learned her dad made
his money selling illegal arms. Kidnapped by his competitors, she knows there’s
little chance he’ll be able to save her.
 
Luckily for Hadley, her father hires Brecken. He’d never leave an
innocent woman behind, let alone the one he quickly comes to consider his.
Brecken might be Hadley’s rescuer, but she’s the one who saves his soul.
 
Warning: This book has an alpha hero who races to the rescue of
the virgin heroine. If you like insta-love and hot sex in the steamy jungle,
then this story is for you!
 
Please note: This is the second novella in the Body & Soul series,
but it can be read as a standalone. Each book in the series features a
different couple.

 

 

 

Excerpt
When I’d glanced at the
photo my client had shown me of his daughter, my hesitation ceased to exist.
Only one thing mattered—saving Hadley from the men who’d taken her. The sight
of her broad smile and bright green eyes staring up at me from her picture
froze me in my tracks. Brown hair so dark it almost appeared black, flowed over
her shoulders, stopping just above her tits. Her perky, luscious tits which
looked huge on her tiny frame. I got a hard-on from seeing her picture while
sitting across from her father and discussing her kidnapping. It was insane.
I’d never had a reaction like this to a woman, let alone from a damn picture at
a time like this.
It was almost as insane as
the feeling of possessiveness which swamped me when Whit whistled softly under
his breath while glancing at her picture. We’d been together since boot camp,
and I’d been lucky when he decided not to re-up at the same time as me. It
meant I was able to open my security firm with Whit at my side, just like I’d
started my military career. At his sign of male appreciation, I wanted nothing
more than to demonstrate exactly what I’d do if he ever laid a hand on her.
“Back the fuck off,” I
hissed at him, sending his eyebrows into his hairline before he moved to the
wall and leaned against it. I was sure to hear about this later, but I didn’t
give a fuck. She was mine, but first I needed to get her out of this mess.

Synopsis

“What he doesn’t realize is the girl he remembers doesn’t exist anymore.” -Lily

Goose calls her Little Bird. But the love of Lily’s life has no idea why the nickname describes her so perfectly. He doesn’t know who she really is, and that their first meeting wasn’t a happy twist of fate, but an elaborate plan that’s been years in the making.

But then lies do what they always do. They pile up, like feathers in her hands, and one by one they all fall.

As Road Captain for the Harbingers of Chaos Motorcycle Club, Goose is an expert at spotting potential danger from miles away. He’s also a living and breathing lie detector.

And yet…when a new little bird dances her way into his life, the vast threat she poses to his club slips right past his radar. He’s too distracted by the color of her lips, and her not so subtle curves, to see her for what she is.

A little lyrebird.

A ghost that’s haunted him for years.

And ultimately, his downfall.

Nirvelli is determined to wipe out any bit of happiness she has. Her life in the Tribe might have been ideal once upon a time—but three years ago one rebellious act ruined everything. Now she only wants out. Can she escape without destroying everyone she loves?

Kane has lived for over three hundred years with his companion Spirit Wolf. He’s known love. He’s known hate. Never has he run across a woman like Velli. Never has his Wolf cared one way or another whom he bedded or loved.

Until her. The Wolf has declared her his mate. Can Kane say the same? If he finally admits it, will his Healing magic be enough to save the deeply wounded Nirvelli?

A broken law leads to great tragedy, and their separation. Velli finds new levels of danger and loss on her own. Kane struggles to find her, but he may already be too late.

 
Abou the author
 

Sarah Cass’ world is regularly turned upside down by her three special needs kids and loving mate, so she breaks genre barriers; dabbling in horror, straight fiction and urban fantasy. She loves historicals and romance, and characters who are real and flawed, so she writes to understand what makes her fictional people tick. And she lives for a happy ending – eventually. And enough twists to make it look like she enjoys her title of Queen of Trauma Drama a little too much.

An ADD tendency leaves her with a variety of interests that include singing, dancing, crafting, cooking, and being a photographer. She fights through the struggles of the day, knowing the battles are her crucible; she may emerge scarred, but always stronger. The rhythms to her activities drive her words forward, pushing her through the labyrinths of the heart and the nightmares of the mind, driving her to find resolutions to her characters’ problems.

Her first full length novel, Changing Tracks, is due to release in February with another novel set for release in April. While busy creating worlds and characters as real to her as her own family, she leads an active online life with her blog, Redefining Perfect, which gives a real and sometimes raw glimpse into her life and art. You can most often find her popping out her 140 characters in Twitter speak, and on Facebook.

Dr. Nate Roman

Heartbroken.

Once was enough. I’ll never give my heart to another again. One night with a woman is enough for me now. As a psychologist, I deal with emotions all day long. Life gets messy when emotions are involved, and I like my life uncomplicated.

Dr. Lynsey Henderson intrigues me. Her smile makes my heart skip a beat. I want her in my bed, but she isn’t proving to be an easy conquest.

I finally have everything I dreamed about since I was a kid. Well, almost. I have the best job as a pediatric orthopedic surgeon, and I live in a beautiful historic home in a quaint small town. I’m missing someone special to share my life with. Someone special to love. The last time I tried was a colossal disaster.

My path has crossed Dr. Nate Roman’s multiple times at work. He is beyond gorgeous and just the kind of guy I swore I’d stay away from…. he has a different girl every night, and I’m not going to be one of the many.

He is so damn sweet when he tries to convince me to go out with him, and I don’t know how much longer I’ll be able to resist.
