About FROM THE BARONESS’S DIARY III: THE HAPPILY EVER

I’ve been trying to get away from one man, I didn’t think I’d end up with three.

I flee my abusive husband and travel to Italy to find Salvatore Di Luca, my long-lost love.

But the moment I set foot in Sicily, my life takes an unexpected turn: I meet Enzo, a dominant, broken-hearted man, and we connect at first sight. I couldn’t have imagined he is Salvatore’s elder brother and that they have a younger brother, Angelo, who thinks he is damaged for life.

It’s more than a trip. It’s a life-time journey.

All three of them want me and I want to heal their tortured souls and broken hearts. Before I even realize what is happening, we are entangled. Yet I am still married and the darkness of my past comes crashing down on us sooner rather than later, threatening more than our happiness.

But I won’t go down without a fight—and neither will my Harem—because my journey won’t be complete until forever belongs to the four of us.

If you are a fan of a romantic Reverse Harem Romance, you will love this scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy story which involves three alpha Italian knights who will do anything for their baroness—ops, their Principessa.

EXCERPT

CHLOE

I am beside myself by all the beauty out here in the Italian countryside.

Not just the vineyards, I must say. The sea, too, and the sun. The light here is different. And oh. The men. Oh, the men.

But I am getting ahead of myself.

Oui, the villa by the sea is very, very nice, though I don’t get to see around much yet.

The house, clearly centuries old, is comfortable and cozy and everything an Italian villa should be. I find myself sighing with longing as I gaze up at the beautiful house, pressed between a backdrop of bright blue sky and an infinite turquoise sea.

But what really awakens the longing inside me is still to come.

We walk in through the back door into a large farmhouse kitchen.

I sense the air of unmistakable masculinity that intoxicates my senses before I see the two men dwarfing a…mini table?

And it’s all I see: Salvatore’s brothers.

Because they don’t even have to be introduced, their sizes are so similar, though one is dark and has his back to me, and the other is fair and much younger.

But the largest is unequivocally the same: broad shoulders, large chest and back, and muscular arms.

Cara,” Salvatore says, dropping my bag at his feet. “I’d like you to meet my baby brother, Angelo.”

Angelo’s big, somewhat innocent, baby-blue eyes grow bigger at the sight of me and I freeze on the spot. Non, n’est ce pas possible. What are the odds of the young man I had seen masturbating on the ferry being Salvatore’s younger brother?

After asking his oldest brother something in Italian and getting what I think is a mocking answer with a mocking laugh, he stands from the table.

I thought at first they were sitting at a mini table, but it doesn’t take me long to realize the table isn’t mini. Non, he just makes it look that way because he is so big.

Piacere.” Because it is really a pleasure, though I’d rather have met him under other circumstances.

But shouldering his way past me, muttering something harsh to Salvatore, he leaves the room, banging the door shut for good measure.

For some reason it knocks the air out of my lungs when he dismisses me so easily.

Does he know I am married? Does he know about my past with his brother and disapproves of it?

But then the other brother stands. Slowly, unfolding his even taller body from his seated position. And then he turns and smiles at me.

And, oh, I have to use all my years of hard training in the convent to remain standing, because I feel faint.

He reaches out a hand and grasps mine in his.

A jolt runs through me and my smile dies on my lips.

Principessa.”

The Tenth Girl by Carrie Aarons Cover Reveal

29 Aug

 

 

Title: The Tenth Girl
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: New Adult/Young Adult

Cover Design: Sarah Hansen, Okay Creations

Release Date: September 9, 2018
Blurb
Never play a game you can’t win.

For Cain Kent, that rule is golden. Losing is not in his vocabulary, and up until now, everything has come easy. Football, school, girls … his charm-laced ego may just be bigger than Texas itself.

The competition he started freshman year with his friends, to make ten notches each in their bedposts by graduation day, is practically in the bag. One more to go, and then it’s off to college fame and eventually, the big time. Attachments aren’t something he wants to form, but when the quiet new girl challenges him in front of his classmates, his curiosity is peaked. She would be the perfect final score, and what fun to break her in the process.

Too bad Harper Posy has no intention of being just another warm body, especially to the bad boy quarterback. Even if he does quote Forster and Huxley when no one is listening. An aspiring author herself, Cain and his hidden soft side are dangerous to her heart. She’s seen men ruin her mother’s dreams time and again, and she’s determined to fly far away as soon as she has that diploma in her fist.

But as the school year’s end looms closer, both realize they didn’t quite understand the rules to begin with. Is winning a dirty bet worth the gamble when the stakes, or the other’s heart in this case, are so high?

Harper is the one girl who isn’t up for playing games. And she just might make Cain lose. Everything.

EXCERPT

 

Fantasy


Fantasy is the best kind of hope and the worst kind of evil. It can take you so high that you have to look down to see heaven. It can also take you so deep that the quicksand will swallow you whole. I’ve had both. I’ve had both at the same time. Is it the worst kind of sin? You want what you can’t have and may even be looking beyond the things you should be grateful for.
I’ve been in love twice in my life. The first?
Toxic.
I thought it was everything I needed and wanted. I felt safe and secure at first, but it quickly deteriorated. I was his arm candy; a prize he could show off, and nothing more. Hearing the words “I love you” from him always had a price. It usually meant my body. Whether it was my mind or sex; he always took from me. He never gave.
The second…
The second is trickier.
He was everything I could have ever wanted. Beautiful inside and out, brilliant and funny… did I mention sexy? He put a wall up, though. The typical person would never know his insecurities, but I saw them. I saw every flaw and imperfection, and it only made him… more.
I could never tell him that, though. It’s not because I couldn’t find the words or wasn’t brave enough. It was because of her. They were together. That’s the way it appeared to everyone anyway. The way she smiled at him and hung on his every word. She seemed to breathe for him, and I could never compete with that.
I wasn’t cultured, or from an extravagant family. I had a father who worshipped the ground I walked on, for better or for worse. I had many friends who would go to the mat and beyond. Some of whom held all my deepest and darkest secrets. I was even more scarred than he was, more flawed and more complex than anyone would ever be ready for. I could never destroy what he had, nor would I want to, but…
I can’t stop the thoughts.
So here I sit, on the bench right outside my tiny apartment off Piedmont Park. I’m a stone’s throw from where we first collided… Stone…
See? Even my subconscious knows.
My journal is getting an earful because it’s the only place I can be honest. I write the three words over and over again, the words that both terrify and excite me.
I love you.
I love you.
I love you.
One day, I hope he’ll know how much.



Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

Turn to Stone by Ariana Rose packs quite an emotional punch!!!!

If you are looking for a book with angst, drama, and some good romance, this is a book not to be missed. Alex and Julian are two scarred souls who meet by chance but who feel an instant pull toward each other.

Both characters are flawed, complex, and scarred, but for very different reasons. Alex is fleeing a horrible relationship and trying to start over. Julian is still heartbroken and devastated after losing the woman he loved. He isn’t looking to get involved with anyone, that is, until Alex entered his world. It should be simple that these two wounded people would find comfort, acceptance, and love with one another. But, it isn’t that simple….Julian is fighting his feelings, and in the meantime, outside forces are conspiring to keep these two apart! Get ready for an emotional journey!!!!

This is Ariana Rose’s debut novel, and I never would have guessed it. The plot, the character development, and her writing illustrate that she is definitely a writer to watch. I always get excited when I find a new author who knows how to write a good story, so I’m anxious to read the next part in this series!

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Who hired you?”

Fran snorted. “Come now, Darren. You and I both know I am not going to answer that.”

“You will.”

She sighed. “You’re being ridiculous.”

“There is nothing wrong with demanding answers.” He waggled the point of his knife at her.

She still didn’t flinch. “Are you going to torture me? Is that what you do now? Torment women because your ego is bruised?”

“The last time I tortured someone, it was with my tongue, and as I recall, you screamed for more.”

A slight flare of her nostrils showed that she remembered what he spoke of. There was no mistaking the slight hint of pink in her cheeks. She never could hide her blushes, especially when aroused.

She still wants me, too? Heat flashed through him followed by an instant cold bucket of don’t-fall-for-it-you-idiot. This wasn’t real.

“You need to let me go. You don’t know what you’re doing. My surveillance of you was standard industry business. You, of all people, should understand that.”

Yes, Darren knew all about espionage, especially that of companies and people. But who was behind it of late? Who kept laying traps and trying to kill the people trained at his academy?

*Paul*

What will happen… when Jenn learns the truth that has been brewing deep inside me?

Traveling to the isolation of a tropical island, we agree to lay our marriage and our future on the line. It’s the only way to face the demons—my demons—that threaten our life together.
For us to make our marriage work, we must break down barriers, reveal the hidden places, and shine light where darkness has taken root.

It is…until the unexpected happens…

I close my eyes and allow my body to simply react.

It’s been too long.

It seems as if recently I’ve overthought everything—every action…word…everything—between Paul and me. The process is exhausting, and I’m too tired to continue. I don’t know what will happen over the next ten days. All I know is that I want what’s in front of me.

Forget that.

I want what’s intoxicating me—my husband’s embrace, the spicy scent of his skin, the way his erection probes my tummy through our clothes, and the sweet sensation of his kiss.

Sex may not save our marriage, but damn, right now as our kiss deepens, I’m on fire. Like a field of grass that’s withstood a drought, the flames grow. Small explosions detonate throughout my body—tiny flares roaring to a blaze and blasting our world. Each is a reminder that there’s been only one man who has ever made me feel completely and utterly loved, worshipped, and satisfied.

The one man who is with me now.

A moan escapes my lips as Paul reaches for the hem of my sundress and lifts it over my head. Just as quickly, he tugs off his own shirt, and I’m surrounded by his strong arms. His wide chest smashes against my breasts, and our hearts work together, the presence of the other increasing their rhythm. The faint taste of the salt air lingers on my lips as I kiss his neck, chest, and torso.
