Forfeit

 
(#DOS Part One)
 
Release Date: February
28, 2017
The
debut novel of a masterfully emotional, high stakes trilogy that will have
readers forfeiting tradition to gamble with love…
December and Austin have a traditional, storybook marriage
complete with defined roles. Married young, they’ve shared nearly a decade of
passion and love. December’s submissive nature is perfectly suited for her
husband’s authoritative, yet adoring personality and he seamlessly holds the
indisputable role of head of the household.
But Austin harbors secrets, and the pressure of losing his job
makes those festering skeletons impossible to ignore.
Turning to alcohol instead of his wife, Austin finally drives
December into the arms of their closest friend, Cord, despite her intense
loyalty. Cord has loved December since the day they met. His moral compass is
challenged and lines are blurred when Austin steps aside and insists Cord take
his place.
Forfeiting
all, Austin must face a harsh truth. Take control of his life, or forever lose
the woman he loves. 
 
WARNING: This
book contains subject matter suitable for mature reading audiences. Some
content may be offensive to sensitive readers. Degrees of Separation is a
ménage trilogy with many emotionally graphic encounters and challenging
situations that break the rules of traditional romance.

Excerpt:  
 
It was like he no longer saw her, just looked right through her,
when she used to be all he could see in the whole world. No matter what she
did, he stayed away—alone—wandering through the house at night and sleeping all
day. She had pride too, and he’d been chipping away at it, scarring her with
deep tattoos of doubt.
Something happened to a woman when her husband no longer touched
her. First there were the superficial frustrations of unrequited desire, but
then it became something worse. The insecurity, fear, and uncertainty ate away
at her insides.
Her self-esteem fractured, perhaps beyond repair. Tiny little
shards of self-worth were all she had left. Even if he came to her now, begging
and full of apologies, she feared someone might get cut.

 

This rut seemed to get deeper and darker every day. She was
losing sight of the light and worried she’d never see herself out. She needed
to feel alive, feel something. She needed to reclaim control and pull herself
back to her feet, which was why this job with Cord was imperative.

Hey everyone,

Today was supposed to be a release day but because this is was once released with All Romance, Amazon is having a little bit of an issue with allowing to be released. My publisher, however, is working to get it live there. Until then, I figured I would share the current release info.

Warning: This is a previously released book that was once titled, Screwed.

Bikers Rule, 1

He intended to screw the enemy, not fall for her…

Jesse Jenkins is not the kind of man to settle down or follow rules. He does what he likes, and who he likes, whenever he likes. When the President of the Demons MC asks him for a favor, he figures it shouldn’t be too hard at all. Just seduce the rival president’s daughter, get the information they need, and get out.

Piper Rix doesn’t trust men easily and being the Hell’s Charter MC President’s daughter doesn’t help with her trust issues, either. She’s remained a virgin because no man wants a fat woman, and that’s how she sees herself. So when Jesse starts spending time with her, she’s suspicious of his intentions.

When Piper finds out the truth about being used, she’s heartbroken. But Jessie’s never been one to give up. He’s discovered his pretend feelings have become very real and he’s determined to claim the woman he loves for his own.

This is a previously published work. It has been revised and edited for Evernight Publishing.

Excerpt:

The romance novels she’d been reading were of the erotic variety. His talk didn’t offend her but excited her.

“I know what you’re thinking. I did my research on those books, Piper. You’re a hot woman at heart. You just need the right man to bring out your dirty side.” He stroked her clit, and she shuddered in his arms, unused to being touched by fingers other than her own.

“Jesse,” she said, gasping for breath.

“If you’re scared, tell me to stop. I’d never force you against your will.”

“I don’t want you to stop.”

Once again he spun her to face him.

“Good, because I don’t want to stop. You’re mine now, baby.”

She liked the idea of being owned by him.

“No other man knows your body. Only I want that pleasure, do you understand?”

“Yes.”

“Good. Sit down on the sofa.”

Stepping away from him, confused by his order, Piper took a seat on the sofa like he told her.

She stared up the length of him, watching as he tore his shirt off, revealing the many tattoos decorating his body. His arms were covered in different designs, and his body was like a landscape of hell. The designs were perfect, not revolting.

“Why did you get these,” she asked, reaching out to touch his chest. Heat radiated off him, and the electricity from the touch made her gasp.

“I love getting ink. Haven’t you ever thought about it, getting ink on your body?” he asked.

Piper shook her head. Letting anyone see her body was not high on her list of things to do by a certain age.

“We’ll take care of that. I own you now. You’re mine.”

NOW LIVE!!!!

YAY, I can now say that For the Club (Bikers Rule MC) is now live at Amazon.

Curvy Women Wanted, 2

Hadley Green is desperate and needs a job, so when she sees an advertisement in the newspaper, she immediately gets an interview, without bothering to check the fine print of what it means to be at the beck and call of a very wealthy, very sexy man. 

All of his life Easton Gray has liked fuller, curvy women. He’s a busy man, and he’s not interested in wining and dining women. So he turns his best friend’s advertisement idea into a reality, never for a second believing it would actually work. 

The moment Easton sees Hadley, he knows he wants her, and he’ll do anything to keep her. At first, Hadley is not interested in being a plaything for this man, but then, she is desperate. This is better than being left homeless. She accepts, and finds herself yearning for more than the man’s body. She’s yearning for his heart as well. 

Will Hadley be able to go from being owned to being taken? From sex to love? Anything is possible in this short, sweet, and dirty romance.

 

Excerpt:

“Did I speak to you yesterday?” she asked.

“No, you spoke to my secretary.”

He had a male secretary. She hoped she hadn’t gotten him into trouble or anything. She licked her lips, and waited for him to direct. “Follow me.” He walked down the long corridor, and entered a room on the left. She followed him through the door, aware of her heels clicking on the floor. Her heart was racing.

“I have a company that comes to clean, and deals with everything else. This advertisement was … something else,” he said, taking a seat.

“Oh, well, I, erm, would it be best if I just left? If you hire cleaning staff, why do you need a housekeeper?” She stared into his dark eyes and couldn’t help but notice how sexy he was. Averting her gaze, she stared at the paper in his hand.

“I don’t need a housekeeper. What I want is something more … personal.”

“Personal?”

“Yes.” He kept staring at her.

“I really don’t know what you want. I came for the job as a housekeeper, and I’m a good, hard worker. I don’t mind working early in the morning or late at night. I’ll clean toilets, cook, whatever you need me to do.” She was starting to beg now. The thought of having to pack up all of her stuff, and be homeless wasn’t helping either. Her rent was due in three days, and she didn’t have enough.

“I wanted someone to fuck,” he said.

The bluntness of his words startled her. “Fuck?”

“Yeah.”

“I don’t … huh?” She grabbed the newspaper, and pointed at the circled advertisement. “It says here housekeeper.”

“It also says ‘for personal needs and more’ in the fine print.”

She frowned and looked back at the advertisement. Holding the paper right in front of her face, she finally saw the fine print, and heat filled her cheeks. “Oh dear.” She looked at the paper, and then back at him. “You want a fuller woman? A curvy woman.”

“Yes.”

“This isn’t some kind of joke?” She glanced around the room expecting to see a camera crew, and someone there to take in her humiliated face.

“No, it’s no joke. This was thought up by my friend and my secretary. My name is Easton Gray, and I don’t have time to dine with a woman. I also don’t want an escort.”

“What exactly do you want?” she asked.

“I want a willing woman who is not averse to spending time with me, and pretty much doing everything I say.”

“When darkness sweeps you under, you can either fight to get to the top, or let it drag you under.”

Cover by: Popkitty

SKYLAR

When darkness sweeps you under, you can either fight to get to the top, or let it drag you to the bottom.

The past is behind me, and now it’s time to enjoy life, or that’s what I tell myself. That’s what I’m trying to do.

And then he sweeps into my life like a tornado. But he doesn’t destroy me…he helps heal me.

Until Adrian I was content to let it pull me to the bottom.

Until Adrian I was content enough to keep moving through life.

But I’m done pretending that I’m happy with who I am, with where I’m at. I want to let Adrian show me that living doesn’t have to be toeing the line. And I don’t care what anyone says, not Alex, my brother, and certainly not my childhood crush, Holden.

ADRIAN

I’ve never let my past dictate who I am. Fighting has been the only solid thing that keeps me grounded, that lets me get out the self-hatred and pain I keep buried deep down.

But then I see Skylar. She’s the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen.

She has her own darkness, her own heaviness that weighs on her. With her I feel like the world is right, that things make sense.

She says I’m helping heal her, but she’s the one who makes me feel complete.

I’ll go to any lengths to keep her by my side, even if that’s going up against the two people

Product Description

Nate Bridges has just made a big mistake. He has just taken Shawna Prescott’s virginity. She is not the kind of girl a jock goes for. His memories are the only thing he can have, and it has to be enough. He can’t have her.

Shawna is not going to tell anyone about her night with Nate. It was just one night, and she never has to speak to him again.

But when Shawna’s mother and Nate’s father reveal they are dating, trying to avoid Nate becomes useless. Nate and Shawna are now living together, and by some strange twist of fate, they find comfort in each other. With college around the corner, and their parents together, Nate and Shawna can either remain a secret, or tell their parents the truth. 

How do they even feel for each other? Nate has never been in love before, and Shawna doesn’t know what love is. Is there a way for them to stay together after high school?

 

Excerpt:

Nate didn’t know what happened to his careful planning, or why his dick was starting to harden, and all of his promises were out of the fucking window. He was not supposed to find Shawna attractive, nor was he meant to try to goad her into a reaction.

 

“Put your hands away,” she said, stepping down until she was a little shorter than he was. “Not going to happen, and you need to stop bringing it up before someone else hears you.”

 

“You won’t be the first girl I’ve screwed.”

 

She rolled her eyes, and he found her enthralling. It was like he’d never noticed her before, and now he couldn’t get enough. She wasn’t like any of the other girls he’d been with. Shawna wasn’t trying to impress him, or gain his attention. She wasn’t even trying to cause any trouble at school. Nothing had changed, apart from his weird obsession when it came to staring at her. Yeah, he didn’t know where that had come from, only that it had happened.

 

“And I bet I won’t be your last. I saw Amanda all over you. You’ll have a new girl by the end of the week.” She patted his chest, and before she could pull away, he locked his fingers around her wrist, stopping her from pulling away from him. “Let go.”

 

“No. You don’t want me to let go. I bet you’re already soaking wet for me.” He couldn’t help it. Staring into her brown eyes, he watched as they dilated, and with just a glance down at her body, he saw that her nipples were rock hard.

 

He was a guy, a teenager, and all he thought about was sex, and more sex. Right now, he’d gladly bend her over the stairs and screw her brains out. All day in school, he’d noticed her, and each time he remembered the cry of her release, the way her nails sank into his back as he filled her.

 

Stepping closer, he wrapped his arms around her waist and pulled her close. Resting his hand on the base of her back, he inhaled her subtle perfume. 

 

She pressed her hands against his chest. “You really need to let me go.”

 

“Or maybe I should do what I’ve been thinking about all day.” Moving her toward the wall, he slammed his lips down on hers, and did what he’d been wanting to do. He pressed his dick against her soft stomach, and caught her hands, holding them up above her head. Biting at her lip, he plundered her mouth and tasted her once again.
