Monica and Alex Waters have spent that last few months working to repair a broken marriage and rekindle their passion. Just as they start finding their spark, Quinn Matthews and his escalating career resurfaces, but this time Alex makes the decision to let Monica go.

The devastation of losing her high school sweetheart, her home, and even her dog twists Monica down a destructive path that alienates her from her closest friends and lands her on Quinn’s couch. Despite her efforts to resist jumping into his arms again, the spark between them reignites and sweeps her away on a whirlwind holiday adventure. She finds that falling in love with Quinn’s family and lifestyle is as easy as falling for his ocean colored eyes. The problem is that it’s all too easy, and when she sees that Quinn’s reinvented life has completely shifted towards her dreams, she starts to question whether he’s too good to be true.

Quinn has a secret that was never meant to be kept this long, but will Monica be able to trust another man who’s lied? And now that Quinn’s got his happily ever after in sight, he’s not about to let her go or share her with another man

Monica settles into a groove and starts dancing with the crowd. Alex tries to hang in for a couple of songs before he starts feeling claustrophobic and looks to the galleries and shops around them.

“Go ahead,” she says with a loving smile. “I’ll meet you down there… after one more song.”

He gives her a little kiss on the cheek and glides his hand across her behind before making his way out of the crowd. His attention is pulled by various pieces in windows along the way. There’s a large glass sea turtle in shades of green and gold followed by a painting of an autumn forest with heavy texture. He stands there daydreaming for a minute until he’s distracted by a reflection passing in the glass. It’s so brief he’s sure it’s his imagination. He barely catches a glimpse down the mall as the backside of the man disappears into another gallery.

Alex follows the ghost, dodging through happy couples and pushy salespeople trying to get his attention. Before he can see inside a painting that’s prominently displayed on a front wall stops him. A cold washes over as he stands there staring at it. He slowly moves inside, mesmerized by the familiar vibrant paint strokes until he sees a few people gathered in the back. A man talking to two smiling women stills himself as Alex’s eyes freeze on the back of his shaved head. No words were needed as the tropical air takes a chill. Even the women sense a showdown and step back to give Quinn room.

Quinn turns. What do I say? Fuck! I thought that was him. I hoped it wasn’t. Quinn moves very slowly towards Alex. Is he gonna hit me? I do deserve it. Might as well get it over with. “Hey.” Quinn pauses near the center of the room waiting.

Alex swallows hard, his nostrils flaring and fist clenched. His jaw flexes as his breathing grows heavier, but the emotions just start to turn to mush. His eyes fill as thoughts of his new friend’s betrayal wash over and the painting draws his eyes again.

“I’m sorry Alex,” Quinn says quietly.

Monica nearly passes the gallery on her way to see their friends when Alex’s shirt first catches her eye. She halts and shifts backwards until she sees the painting and stops. It’s a female figure bent forward reaching for her toes. The abstract form of her body in swirls of orange and reds is cradled by a man swathed in blues and purple. Oh my God! That’s me. That’s us, stretching. It can’t be. He’s…

She struggles for air as the tears swell, and she can already feel him. As she stands there, not crossing the threshold, the two men watch her. When her eyes finally land on Quinn, electricity fills the room. She can only see him and the deep tan that backdrops the pale oceany eyes reaching for her. A warm drop gently slides down her cheekbone as her breathing syncs with his. His lips move slightly hinting at words that he can’t find while she struggles not to run into his arms.

Alex’s discomfort is audible as he clears his clogged throat to rattle her attention to his worried eyes. She steps in and touches his hand briefly. “I’ll be outside,” she says, turning without another glance at Quinn.Her feet move quick as her thoughts try to keep up. What are they doing? Alex is gonna hit him. I can’t believe he’s here. What are the odds? Did he know we’d be here? No. Maybe he moved here. That painting was him and I together. Would Alex know that? It’s pretty abstract. Fuck! This can’t be happening. Before she knows it, she’s at the other end of the mall near the parking lot. She settles on a bench to wait for the world to stop crumbling around her.


About the Author:

A.L. Goulden Pic


I’m a designer, author, wife and dog-lover living in the South Pasadena area of California. I got my BFA in Film Production from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, but my love of a good story came way before college. I remember writing my first full story in fifth grade on a typewriter. I cut and pasted it into a book, complete with cardboard cover and taped binding. Things have changed a lot since then. With the magnificent digital age I can produce books and give them to the world without a sticky mess.

In college numerous instructors and peers praised my dialogue pushed me to hone my storytelling skills. Of course the need to cut and paste was still there, so I went into the world of Production Design and Art Direction for films and television. It gave me the ability to connect design to storytelling in a way that no other career can. The past 18 years have spun a unique perspective on visually emotional tales of relationships and the thread that ties all things together. Now I’m shifting focus on the driving force that brought me here… stories. I hope that I can share a unique perspective on life, love and the pursuit in all of the above.

♦10 fun facts about A.L.♦

1. I not only like to design things like homes, gardens, and interiors, I like to build them too. I built the redwood decks in our backyard when our carpenter backed out at the last minute. Since I was off work for a few weeks, I went for it. The best part was the neighbor’s reaction to me out there every day with power tools and very long planks of wood. I think working with your hands gives you an immediate sense of accomplishment.

2. I’m a reluctant morning lover, which means I love getting things get done early while it’s quiet and calm, but my attitude when I first roll out of bed is sour.

3. I’ve practiced bonsai for many years and have a garden with 10 trees on display.

4. I love board games and try to organize game nights with friends as often as possible. My family was always very competitive and had a regular Sunday night usually filled with Yahtzee or UNO battles.

5. My favorite book as a kid was Pride and Prejudice, but I was very Dyslexic so I hated reading. Eventually I got into an assistance program that worked me through the difficulties and turned me into a bookworm.

6. I’m a hardcore Oakland A’s fan. Baseball is the only sport I follow.

7. We moved from Oklahoma when I was twelve to Las Vegas. It was so completely twisted and unique to living anywhere else in the world, especially in the early 90s when things were booming. I got a well-rounded education on what I didn’t want out of life by living there. I don’t visit unless I’m dragged there.

8. I have an English Setter and German Shorthair Pointer that keep me on my toes.

9. I love road trips, but have to be the driver. I’m a terrible passenger.

10. My husband and I are celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary in 2015, but we’ve known each other since the summer of 1993 in high school.

The Author

Co-Authors, and sisters, Christa Gibbs and Jill Syed reside in Ontario, Canada. Born and raised on da’Rock [a.k.a. St. John’s, Newfoundland], their laid back personalities and eclectic sense of humor is indicative of their native roots. Although fluent in Newfinese, both are quite eloquently spoken, showing no remnants of an accent unless alcohol is involved.

Fluent in air-guitar [she trained in Europe], Christa, by day, transforms into her Executive role in the Property Management World. This wonderful position lends credence to her altruistic life experiences lived vicariously through the many residents within her keep. This translates beautifully to her evening endeavors, which include creating lovable characters and interesting storylines [when she’s not catering to her loving ‘Oooge’ — a.k.a. biker hubby]. An avid reader of erotic romance [upwards of two to three novels per week], Christa decided to give her own incessant fairytale sex-capade fantasies a voice.

When she is not behind the camera in her Photography Studio, Jill spends portions of her days mentally cataloging all the reasons why she shouldn’t become an indulgent drinker at the helm of her three young children during the absences of her Pilot husband [though you will hear her undying love and devotion for them often: “blessed”]. Passionately creative, Jill spent many years capturing life moments on film, canvas and even paper. Having dabbled in the writing of many children’s books, all of which ended up covered in dust and never carried through, clarity hit once she collaborated with her sister: “Ohhh, the steamy sex was the missing ingredient”.

He always wanted her, she just never knew it . . .

Seven years worth of guilt for what he’d inadvertently allowed to happen.
He had it all planned out, every step of the epic-groveling he knew he’d have to do.
His plan was absolutely perfect.
Genius, actually.
Then he walked into his company’s IT department and seen the same big, blue-gray eyes that had haunted him for years . . .
Glaring at him from behind familiar, black-framed glasses.

Meet the Author

N. Isabelle Blanco was born in Queens, NY (USA). At the age of three, due to an odd fascination with studying her mother’s handwriting, she began to read and write. By the time she’d reached kindergarten, she had an extensive vocabulary and her obsession with words began to bleed into every aspect of her life.
An avid reader in her teens, her fascination with Japanese anime eventually led her to the universe of fan fiction, which became her on-again, off-again hobby for the next ten years. During that time she amassed a following of fans that, by her own admission, she would never be able to live without. It was those fans who encouraged her to step beyond the fan fiction realm and try her talent in the publishing world.
N. Isabelle Blanco spends her days working as an author, web programmer, marketer, and graphic designer. That is when she isn’t handling her “spawn”, as she calls her son, and brainstorming with him about his future career as a comic book illustrator.

Corrupted & Warped 
Alicia Taylor & Natalie Townson
Book Blitz
Dec 1st – Dec 5th
I am going to marry a monster. 

He is my everything. 

He manipulates people for fun. 

He takes over their lives, consuming them. He
dominates and crushes, ruling them, claiming their souls. 

No one has survived the games of Damon Hunt, so

Before now. Before me. 

I am Ella Knight. I am corrupted.

My sister was a victim of Damon’s games.

It’s my turn to play now. 

Damon Hunt has been my sole focus, my everything
for three years, since my sister’s death. 

I’ll manipulate him. I’ll take over his life,
consuming and crushing him. I am going to take away his soul. Damon Hunt will
not survive my games. 

I will win. I hope.

“Ella,” he rasps. “You’re gonna fuckin’ kill me. Sweet
Jesus, baby.” He closes the distance between us in two strides. When he’s close
enough, his hands grip on my hips and pull me into him. Our bodies clash, my
blood ignites. Need washes through me. Damon’s scent envelopes me, he smells
pure male. My chest heaves as I look up into his eyes, my breasts brushing
against his chest with every inhale. “I can see everything, beauty. Every
fucking thing. The rounded globes of your perfect arse, the mound of your
pussy, the dimples at the back of your knees.” His hands move down to grip my
arse cheeks. He squeezes roughly before pulling me into his hard cock. I moan
as the move hits the perfect spot. “God, I need to keep you.”

Trilogy, Corrupted, #2)
I won’t be caught off guard again. I won’t let them
win. They played the first round and won. Now it’s time for me to even the
score. Damon and Leona will pay for their twisted games. Leona is first.
His touch repulses me. His fake affection disgusts me. 

He sickens me. 

I need to get my head in the game. I need to be smart
and break their bond to more easily crush them. Damon is clever. He knows what
he’s doing. He’s been playing the game long enough.

He’s twisted. 

I’m warped. 

It’s time to finally end this. 


Time to finally win.

tightening under my palms.

grips the back of my knee and brings my leg up to hook around his hip. I cling
to his shoulders and dig the heel of my foot into his firm arse cheek to steady
hard cock bobs against my stomach, making me desperate for him. Damon presses
his chest to mine and claims my mouth in a hungry kiss. His tongue collides
with mine, and they battle together.
blood heats to volcanic temperatures, my pussy clenching and dripping. I need
him in me, filling me. Instead, Damon’s fingers make contact with my throbbing
clit. He rubs around the hood in a soft circle before slipping down my wet
folds to my entrance, where he slowly runs a fingertip around the outer rim
before plunging two fingers inside. I cry out and my body clenches around his

thick digits.

pulls his fingers out and rubs hard on my hooded pearl.

body trembles in his hold. Damon releases his grip on my arse to grip my hip,
and walks me back a step, until my back presses against the cold, tiled shower
wall. His assault on my pussy doesn’t stop. He alternates between finger
fucking me and caressing my clit.
other hand slips from my hip to my back, and slowly strokes up my spine.
Goosebumps break out across my skin and I whimper. My nails dig into his neck
as my orgasm builds, ready to break and make me float.
I cry. I just need something more, it’s not enough. Damon seems to notice, and
his hand leaves my back to grasp my hair. He tugs, pulling my head back, and my
chin juts into the air. Damon’s lips travel up my neck to rest at the tip of my
hand cups my pussy, his palm presses into my clit, his finger hooks in me. He
hits my secret bundle of nerves, making me scream. Fuck, it feels so good.

upper body erupts with chills as Damon pulls away from me slightly, only to
latch on to my nipple, biting with enough sting to send me over the edge. I
scream his name as wave after wave of pure bliss rolls through me.
Avowed is now available for pre-order.


Three years ago I vowed revenge. Now I’m married with secrets, desperate to get past them.
I set out to destroy the man I thought ruined my life. I never saw it coming when he turned out to be the love I couldn’t live without.
Damon was my target, now I’m determined to keep him.
Will he be able to get past my confessions, and forgive my actions? Will I be able to forgive his? We’ve come too far to lose it all now. It’s time to fight for us, fight for our happiness.
Not every story is as it seems but it’s time to avow our sins.
Both of us.
