Handsome, wealthy Quinn McCallister is the most eligible bachelor on McCallister’s
Paradise. Making his family’s island resort a success is all that matters to
this workaholic. Everything changes when he meets the beautiful new massage therapist…
Larissa Bennermay has survived cancer, but its aftermath left plenty of problems besides the ever-looming fear of relapse. Her family nearly went bankrupt paying for her life-saving treatments. She desperately needs the full-time therapist position on the island and the benefits that come with it. The last thing she wants is problems with her boss, or a complicated office romance.
Its’s hard for her to resist Quinn’s charms-or his passionate side. However, Quinn is married to his job.  The choice between love and work is tough for him to juggle and has Larissa scared. If the cancer recurs, could she count on him to be there for her? Or would he leave her to face it alone, ending her relationship in tragedy?
Diving Into Love – Book 2
Art by http://edhgraphics.blogspot.com/

Parker McCallister is the playboy of the family, never having a care in the world beyond his next fling. When Sierra Burns nearly runs him down on horseback, she challenges him in ways he’s never experienced. Now all he has to figure out is how to capture this beauty’s heart, and this time it is about more than sex and fun for him. 
Shortly after meeting Parker, disaster strikes for Sierra and her secret troubles are revealed. Now she needs his help in the worst way. The only problem is she wants to earn her place in life and have a chance to be the person she wants to be, not who her rich parents expect of her. Taking charity from Parker or his family would feel like a lie to her convictions, and she doesn’t want dating him to be a condition of accepting their help. 
Despite her hesitations, Parker’s charms and charisma are hard to resist. Just when she gives up fighting against the attraction and allows herself to hope for love, his past foists a surprise on the new couple and throws Sierra’s life out of balance…again.
 

For Love or Charity – Book 3
Art by http://edhgraphics.blogspot.com/
Sydney McCallister isn’t looking for love, especially not from an overbearing man
demanding money for his charity after missing the cutoff date for proposals.
Doesn’t Matthew Coleson realize his organization isn’t the only one hoping for
a grant from the McCallister family? Tired of dealing with the constant stream
of angry people and feeling terribly homesick besides, Sydney wonders if she
should give up on New York and head back to the family’s island resort. 

When Sydney’s office is trashed and she receives a threatening message, she’s
certain Matt must be responsible. After confronting him, however, she learns
there is more to this man than is apparent at first glance. There’s
something about his eyes… besides, who can resist a man who helps homeless
people get back on their feet? He seems to truly care about people and swears
he would never hurt anyone. Together, they work to uncover the identity of the person threatening Sydney, and Matt seems determined to keep her safe. Questions remain for her, despite the excitement Matt brings to her life… Does he care about her for herself, or is he more interested in her family money and what that could mean for his charity?

Conflicted on 5th Avenue

Excerpt

©Abbie St. Claire 2015

He tossed the ropes back in the drawer and gripped both my hands, pulling me to sit on the bed with him. “When we started making love earlier, I could tell you weren’t confident with yourself or your image. I know this by the way you tried to hide yourself. What I don’t know is who fucked with your head. You are hot. Your body is beautiful, and you should be proud of it. You’re so responsive. Being restrained makes you vulnerable, yes, but it also helps you to understand and embrace sensations that you can no longer hide from or—control. It actually gives you sexual freedom.”

“And you know this how?”

“I’ve studied the art of sexual pleasure.”

I thought for a moment. I looked at his body, and the dark, primal lust emanating from his eyes. “You’re a Dom. Look, I’m no sub. You’ve picked yourself the wrong girl.”

I slid my legs from the bed and tried to stand, but he pulled me into his lap. “So, let me get this straight. You want to tie me up and in some miraculous way, show me sexual freedom from my fears. You think you know me so well, but yet I barely know you. So tell me, doc, what are you afraid of?”

I wanted to challenge him, see if he’d expose his own weakness or perhaps be caught off guard and not know what to say.

“You.” He swallowed hard. His chin was at my eye level, and I viewed the clenching of his jaw before the rise and fall of his chest taking a deep breath. “You make me feel things and think too much about things I haven’t thought of since Olivia and that scares the fucking hell out of me.”

Brutal honesty and disclosure—took me by a thunderous storm inside my chest, holding my breath hostage.

His shoulders went limp with his confession. Vulnerability controlled both of us in far reaching spectrums, although by the same token placing us on an even playing field.

That was, until he opened the drawer and retrieved the ropes.

We sat in silence while music played in the background. He pulled me tightly to his chest and held me, running his fingers through my hair. “I’m no Dom. I don’t believe in having a sexual slave. I do like using toys and apparatuses for pleasure, but you will never call me Master or Sir, and I will never ask for a contract or command you to do something.”

“You’ve never been to one of those chamber places?”

The quiet became maddening to the point I couldn’t stand it. With my hands on his chest, I pushed away from him to maneuver a stare down.

“Yes, I’ve been. Here and California.”

The elephant landed in the room.

He was supposed to be the rebound…

After a pathetic reenactment of The Runaway Bride, the last thing Nelena Price needed was a man to swoop in and steal her heart. Good liquor, laughter, and great no-strings sex were the only options she wanted on her menu.

But can the events of fourteen days in Vegas really be left in Vegas?

Excerpt
Carrying my cup of coffee, I walk back to my bedroom and look into the suitcase. So far everything looks alright—swimsuit, shorts, t-shirts, dress slacks, and dress shirt. Jules came through on her other promise to go to the store for the trip—deodorant, soap, toothpaste, condoms. Wait, condoms?!
 
“Jules, what the hell is this?” I ask, holding up the box of Trojans.
 
Not missing a beat, she grabs the box from me and throws it back in the suitcase, zipping it up. “I got everything you could possible need. Soap, toothpaste, Pepto, Pedialyte—”
 
“And condoms?” I ask with a raised eyebrow.
 
“I’m sorry, I didn’t know you had another preferred method of safe sex,” she quips as she pulls my suitcase off the bed and drags it to my front door.
 
“And just who do you think I’ll be having sex with?”
She shrugs as she walks back to the bedroom and shoves a pile of clothes in my arms. “I don’t know, I don’t care, but you need to get laid. So go to paradise, find some lucky woman, and get some.”

I’ve given away my heart once and only once. Now, I live my life the way I do. I don’t have time to talk about my feelings and get emotional. That shit is for the birds. When you take out emotions you’ll feel a lot better, trust me. Emotions mean feeling and feeling means opening yourself up to get hurt and when you’re hurt, all you can think about is why and what you could have done differently. You blame yourself and think of ways to get her back. When you can’t think of anything, you’re backed up into a corner and feel alone. No one can help you because the only person who can will never be able to. That hurt leaves you feeling broken and you go through hell trying to pick yourself back up. You stop your life, the only life you know, and live in the dark. You’re vulnerable to words and actions. People around you walk on eggshells, scared to make you cry or piss you off. So I’ve taken away my feelings and will never hurt the way I did before. See my point?
