Co Written By: D.H Sidebottom & Ker Dukey

Genre: Dark romance

Release Date: July 15, 2015

CU Synopsis

I watch you, I see you in ways no one else can, and through my lens I create a life of you for someone to dissect. I capture you in your vulnerability; that smile, your laugh, those tears. I document you and sell your secrets.

When I watch you through my lens you’re mine until I pass you to the buyer. I, like most people, have a fetish for pretty things and in my job I get to be around a lot of pretty things. They pay me to watch them and capture them in a frame for many purposes, and sometimes I like my profession a little more than I should.

I took a job to capture her… I wanted to capture and keep her in more than just the image. This time I will take myself away from the lens and become the client because I cannot resist her, she reminds me too much of my first, I need to have her.

Traumatised from a vicious attack, Nina Drake finds herself shut off from the world until her neighbour brings her out of more than just her nightmares. Even after moving and changing her name, she still can’t shake the feeling of being watched. The memories are so close.

And so is the shadow of the creator of them all.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

You can find me on Facebook where I love interacting with my readers.

Controlling Interests by Lana Grayson

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000040_00012]

 

Controlling Interests (The Legacy #2) by Lana Grayson

Cover Designer: Rebecca Berto from Berto Designs

Synopsis

Submission is survival…

Sarah

Trapped. Seduced. Betrayed.

Submission is the greatest revenge.

When I turn twenty-one, my family’s secret trust passes to me, and I’ll finally destroy Darius Bennett…if I survive my captivity. But vengeance comes at a cost, and Nicholas Bennett demands a male heir to ensure my safety.

I fell hard for my step-brother, but loving the man is easier than trusting a Bennett.

Hiding our relationship will protect us, but what will happen if the lies twist and the truth is revealed?

I have to save myself, because I don’t know if anyone else will.

Nicholas

Devoted. Consumed. Lost.

I’m out of options, out of allies, out of time.

I want it all—my step-sister and her heir, the money and empires—and I’ll stop at nothing to ensure they’re mine.

But saving the woman I love means either betraying her secret or losing the power that is my birthright.

How do I protect my family from Sarah Atwood, and how do I keep her safe from my father?

The answer?

I can’t.

And the sacrifice will ruin us both.

Excerpt

“You will sleep every night in my bed. You’ll wake every morning in my arms. Is that clear enough for you, Ms. Atwood?” I brushed my thumb over her puffy lip. “They touch you because I give you to them. They fuck you because I order it. And you will receive them because it is what you are meant to do.”

Sarah didn’t pull away. She never did, even when it was in her best interests.

“Remember this moment,” she whispered. “Right here, right now.”

“Every second with you is forever seared in my memory.”

“Good.” Her smile widened, and I longed to taste her challenge. “Remember this conversation on my twenty-first birthday.”

“Why?”

“Because, Nicholas Bennett, once I own you and your company, you’ll be obeying my orders.”

“And what would those entail?”

“You touching me because I want it. You taking me because I command it.”

It was a defeat worth earning. She leaned in, but I denied her, if only to see her pout.

“You’ll get that kiss once I return,” I said.

“I’ll hope for more than a kiss.”

Dangerous girl.

About Mr. Wright Forever

He was supposed to be the man I loved – forever.

He shot that fantasy to Hell. He broke my heart and shattered my soul.

I was moving on – or it looked that way to those on the outside looking in. I’d moved to Chicago and landed myself a killer job. I was making friends and then out of the blue he was there – and all over again I felt myself falling. This time, it wasn’t an easy fall. I fought it hard.

But one night with Kade Wright can never be one simple night. I should have known. I’ve been here before.

From the very beginning, Mr. Wright Now was always Mr. Wright Forever.

Excerpt one of Mr. Wright Forever

“What are we doing, Kade?”

I loved hearing my name on her lips. There’s nothing better than the sweet sound of her voice saying my name. Even when it’s flowing from those lips in anger, I liked it. I just liked me – on her.

“We’re not fighting us anymore.” My reply was firm and her eyes widened in shock.

“We aren’t?”

I shook my head resolutely. “No, Nelena, we aren’t.”

“How do you figure?”

I could feel my blood heat in my veins as I took a step toward her, pushing her from the elevator and into my space by first infiltrating hers. I wanted to push my way into everything that is her and hers. I wanted to infiltrate every crevice of her heart, every inch of her body, until I was too entwined within her to ever lose her again.

She gasped a breathless sound and I tried not to let her see just how intimately her breathlessness affected me. It took me all of seconds to open the door of my condo before pushing her inside. I know she’s fighting a war inside – I know because I can see it through the honey brown of her eyes, and like a predator, I can sense the increased frequency that is the beating of her heart.

“Stop fighting this.” I whispered, pushing her back against the closed door of my condo, caging her within my arms on either side of her body. “You know it’s pointless. I know you feel for me what I feel for you. I know you’ve craved me every moment we’ve been apart.”

“No.” She shook her head adamantly. I’m really not sure if she’s trying to convince me, or herself.

I continued as though she never even spoke. “Your body craves mine. I know because even now, even though you’re fighting me with everything you have, your leaning into me. Your chest is pushing toward mine, acting against your every instinct to fight me.” Her breaths quickly turned short. “You’re breathing is quick and sharp. You respond to my voice on a primal level and you know this reaction isn’t something that should be fought. Fighting this – us – shouldn’t even be considered.”

Excerpt two of Mr. Wright Forever

“Do you want to know what you are to me, Nelena?”

Confusion settled in my mind before understanding pushed it away and I nodded, breathing. “Yes.”

“You are my everything. You are the air I breathe, the bright to my days and the warmth to my nights. You are the keeper of my heart and the healer of all my wounds. You are the face of my future and the promise of my happiness. You make me worthy.” Tears were pouring from my eyes, but I didn’t move to wipe them away. I didn’t want to stop him. “You’re the woman I love more than my own life. For you, there is nothing I wouldn’t sacrifice.” He lowered his lips to mine, kissing me softly. “You are my everything.”

“I love you.” I whispered against his lips.

“I am in love with you.” His words were a vow, a promise and a statement rolled into one beautiful package.

When he lowered his body to mine – filling me – I’ve never lived a moment where I felt so complete.

This joining with him was something I couldn’t explain. It was a force unlike anything I had ever known up to this moment. It was the very thing I existed for – the very reason for my beating heart. This love, with Kade, was magnetic. It was so blissfully perfect in all its imperfection.

About Alannah Carbonneau

I live in Alberta, Canada, where the weather is forever changing (without warning). I am engaged to be married in August 2015 to my high school sweetheart and love of my life. There are no children in my life as of right now, but we do have a handful of rambunctious cats (four) and a testy, rescued Shepard/Husky, who take up a lot of my time.

Ever since I can remember, I’ve adored the written word. English was always my favorite class and that may be biased because I can’t count to save my life, so math was a horror! I remember the very first novel I ever read, Shocking Pink by Erica Spindler. It was the most interesting of the covers on my mom’s bookshelf (probably because it was pink) and I was way too young to be reading that novel. But I fell in love. From there, I read almost everything from V.C. Andrews.

My writing started out as poetry, which then evolved to songs, and later into novels. I was never one for the short stories as I found it too difficult to pack everything I imagined into something so small. I now have multiple novels published independently. I write both novels for young adults and novels for adults – all romance.

Despite my favorite younger reading material, I now adore writing and reading all things romance.

Synopsis

The past never stays in the past. The pain, guilt, and darkness still flow through my veins and itch to come out. I’m not proud of my secrets, but I have never felt shame either…until her.

Emma makes me feel things I thought I’d become immune to. She makes me want to see light, to rid myself of my demons and it terrifies me.

There is so much from my past she doesn’t know. I told her I wasn’t good for her, that I’d ruin her, and I vowed to stay away. But I can’t get her off my mind.

I need her.

I need her in more ways than I knew were possible for me.

She is my saving grace and I’m ready for redemption.

Title: Corner of Ocean and Bay  Author: Gina Azzi  Publication date: June 15th 2015  Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult

Synopsis

Nessa Moore has sought reliable stability since her father’s death. Now, she’s over it. Tired of always being the mature adult, constantly worrying about her alcoholic mother, stressing about being able to afford college, she wants to have one normal, carefree, fun summer. And be more like her best friend Jacie.

Jacie Hayes is struggling to overcome the recent breakup with her first love. The one that ripped out her heart and left her devastated. Frustrated and bored with her own self-pity, Jacie wants nothing more than to forget about Dylan, to go back to her old ways, her old self. To be the fun-loving, live-in-the-moment girl who gossips about boys and sips mojitos.

Best friends since childhood, Nessa and Jacie have been through all their ups and downs together. No matter what. Now, the summer before their senior year of high school, they accept an invitation from Jacie’s aunt to join her in Lockwood Quay, New Jersey, a summer beach getaway.

Determined to make this their best, most memorable, summer yet, both girls push their own boundaries, accept new challenges, and find themselves keeping secrets from each other.

But sometimes, stepping out of your comfort zone has consequences.

And some secrets can’t be forgiven.

Or forgotten.

Excerpt

Strong hands close on my hips from behind and I immediately recognize Z’s touch, his smell envelops me as he pulls closer. The hard muscles of his thighs alleviate the pressure on my legs as his forearms close around my middle, holding me up, pressing me into him. His chin dips down, nestling in the curve of my neck. He presses a soft kiss to the top of my shoulder.
“Nessa,” he whispers, closing the space between our mouths. He stops an inch from my lips. “I’m going to kiss you now.”
I nod, barely, before his lips gently press over mine. Z kisses me slowly, sweetly, reverently. He pulls back slightly and looks into my eyes, shaking his head imperceptibly. His hands work their way up my shirt, gripping the sides of my ribcage and he jerks me closer, slanting his head; his mouth crashes over mine, and I’m pulled under like a riptide.

A SUMMER LIKE NO OTHER By Elodie Nowodazkij

A SUMMER LIKE NO OTHER
By Elodie Nowodazkij

Synopsis

She’s his best friend’s little sister. He’s the biggest player of them all.
They shouldn’t be together. But this summer’s just too tempting.

Sixteen-year-old Emilia Moretti’s goal for the summer is simple: forget her brother’s best friend—Nick Grawsky—ever existed. It should be easy: He’s spending his summer in the Hamptons, adding girls in tiny bikinis to his list of broken hearts. Guarantee he won’t be telling them they’re like his little sisters. This summer, Emilia won’t stay awake at night thinking about him. She’ll need flawless ballet movements to have a shot at next year’s showcase, and she’s finally ready to search for her birth parents. But when Nick decides to stay in the city, Emilia’s resolve disappears in a pirouette. Maybe it’s the spin they needed to be together. As long as she doesn’t get stuck believing in happily ever after…

Nick is tired of pretending to be the happy, let’s-have-fun guy. His father wants him to change his career from professional dancer to…lawyer. He needs to put all of his focus on dancing to prove to Daddy Dearest he’s good enough to make it big. And he may have a case of the bluest balls in history courtesy of Emilia. She’s off-limits: The bro code with Roberto even forbids the dirty thoughts he has about her. Besides, he’s not boyfriend material. He only has time for flings, for girls who don’t expect much, for girls he doesn’t want to kiss goodnight. He knows he should resist her, but he’s not sure he wants to…

At least for this summer.

It’s going to be a summer like no other.

Excerpt

 

“More,” she begs as I bring the cane down on her already red ass. I drop the long thin piece of bamboo, it makes a sound as it hits the concrete of my playroom. “I didn’t give you permission to speak, Petal,” I say to Penny. My voice is low, angry though controlled.

“Please, Sir. Harder,” she begs.

Her body is filled with marks. Her alabaster skin is no longer white. It’s a perfect hue of flaming crimson. Welts have developed from every one of the toys I’ve used on her. I’ve spanked her, flogged her, paddled her and caned her. And with everything I’ve done she wants more.

I’ve noticed since Matthew and Ella’s wedding, Penny’s upped the ante with her pain tolerance. She’s begging for more, desperate to have pain in her life at every opportunity.

She’s tried to top me many times, just like she is now.

“Did I give you permission to talk?” I ask again.

I stand behind her, her legs open, her pussy on show to me along with her glorious ass. Her blonde hair is falling out of the ponytail she had it in, and the strands are a stark contrast against the rich brown of the leather from the spanking bench. She’s up on her knees, her wrists are secured to the front legs of the bench.

“So-sorry, Master,” she stutters.

I fucking hate it. She’s called me Master a few times and I know she wants that from me, but I don’t want a slave. I want a submissive.

Standing back, my eyes travel the length of her body. From her upper back all the way to her ankles- she’s marked. The heavier lashings are around her upper thighs and butt. Her mid-section only has slight color, because hitting with a heavy hand around the kidneys is not pleasurable. It’s flat out pain. Penny’s been wanting more pain and I’m not ready to take her there. Nor should she want to travel into such dangerous territory.

Salvation Teaser 1

Excerpt

“What the hell is so funny?” I lick up the column of her exposed throat.

“The look on your face.”

“Glad to amuse you, babe, but you won’t think it’s quite so funny when I punish you for your little stunt.”

“Whatever you say. It was innocent.”

“Innocent? You’re in a bar in a strange city, with some of the craziest girls in the world, looking like a fucking sex kitten, and you call that innocent?”

“You think I look like a sex kitten?” Her voice goes low.

“Absofuckinglutely. Hottest girl in this room. The hair, the body, the outfit… Every guy in here, with the exception of our friends, wants to fuck you. Lucky for me, that’s my job. And when I get you alone, that’s exactly what I’m going to do.”

Her eyes grow hazy with lust, and she licks her lower lip. “Can you tell me more about this punishment?”

I move her to a dark corner and pin her against the wall. “Stop looking at me like that, Ember. I’m not above fucking you against the bathroom wall.”

“Ummm, sounds like fun. What else.” She taunts me, and I grow hard against her pelvis.

“You like that? You want me to talk dirty and tell you I want to eat your fucking pussy until you beg for mercy for leaving me tonight? Make you come silently against my mouth, fingers, and dick while we’re in a house full of people?”

“Yes, I want that. I want you any and every way I can get you.”

Secured: free from risk of loss, safe; not likely to fail or give way, stable; to guard from danger.

This pull in my chest, the tug of my beating heart, is stronger than it’s ever been. No one could ever compare to Avery. Everything about her makes me only want to experience more, the good and the bad. I’ll take whatever I can get because, as I’ve known from the very beginning, my heart belongs to her.

Why can’t she see it?

My beautiful angel, so filled with doubt and worry. I can feel her fears, but for once in my life, I feel helpless. There’s nothing that I can do that convinces her, nothing that speaks to her. Why can’t she see that she’s more than anything I ever dreamed of, that she’s perfect for me? This is enough.

Doesn’t she see?

I’ve only ever wanted her.

***

My heart races in my chest, pounding out a rhythm all its own. There’s adrenaline pumping all through my veins. It’s surging into my system and making me a nervous wreck.

I’ve waited forever to see my SEAL again. The wait is over, but I’m filled with doubts. Insecurities are hounding me left and right, plaguing me at every turn.

What if I’m not what he remembers, not good enough?

Our time spent in each other’s presence was less than a month. One month isn’t nearly enough time to get to know a person, is it? My head says no, but my heart screams that I know Kreed Jones better than I know myself. He’s spent eighteen long months convincing me of his love, growing my love for him with every letter, every phone call, but is it really enough?

What do we do now that he’s back?

I can’t be a Navy wife. I’m not strong enough, but how can I ask this selfless man to give up a dream, for me? He’s so hard to read. I just want to know where we are heading, what he’s thinking, am I still enough.

Am I still enough?

Tethered: the utmost length to which one can go; a range of allowable behavior; at the end of one’s tether, i.e. at the end of one’s patience or strength.

It’s been two miserable months since I last set my eyes on her gorgeous face, seven months since I’ve heard her voice. Hearing it now, coming from those sweet lips, God, it makes me regret everything, as if I didn’t already.

As if I don’t torture myself for the mistakes I made. Damn it, if I could only take them back! There’s nothing in this world that I wouldn’t give to take them back, to undo the hurt I’ve caused Drew.

As if I could ever forgive myself for the pain.

As if I haven’t spent every single second of my miserable fucking life missing those gorgeous, blue eyes looking at me like I’m a damned god, something to be valued and loved.

I think that’s what I miss the most.

My bright eyes.

***

That face! God, Trevor Rossi haunts my dreams, my every waking second. I see him in strangers in a crowd, in the park, in the supermarket. It’s been so long, a lifetime it seems, but not nearly long enough to forget. I’m not sure an eternity will make me forget the way he made me feel, cherished…adored. There’s nothing in this world that I want more than him. Even now, my entire being is always drawn to that man like a compass to true north, but…

He hurt me.

He didn’t fight for me. Through all the tears and anguish, the singular thing that destroys my soul is that he never even tried. Was giving up on us really so simple for him? After everything we had accomplished, how far we came, was it just a matter of walking away?

He ripped my already broken heart into a thousand shreds, stomping them against the hardwood of the club.

Despite all the wrenching pain, I want him.

My broken love.

synopsis1

Sealed: to conclude, establish, or settle definitively, excluding the possibility of reversal or loss; to decide irrevocably.

I’m leaving the naive, little girl version of myself behind in Pilot’s Point, and good riddance to her. Here, I can be whoever I want, a whole new Avery far removed from the drama of that former self. This one isn’t going to be afraid to take risks and go out on a limb or two. I’m done living in a self-proscribed bubble, always scared of the consequences of a poor decision.

There’s so many new experiences in Baltimore, new people, new places. I’m entranced by everything here from the snow to the men. There is no shortage of hot guys in Baltimore. They say everything is bigger and better in Texas, but I must beg to disagree.

From the moment Kreed Jones touched his soft lips to my hand, his mouth is the only thing my brain wants to concentrate on. Those sweet lips that refused to kiss mine, refused to take advantage, God, I want them. I want them so badly, but…

Trevor Rossi is sexy as sin, and boy, does he ever know! He’s gorgeous; that’s a given. The playboy lifestyle he exudes calls to me, drawing me near the flame. I know I’ll get burned, but would the end be worth one night in his arms? I am uncertain, still firmly on the fence, and after running into my professor, I’m even more confused.

Dr. James Saunders…James, as he insists…is handsome in his tailored suit, and the beautiful soul that shines behind those glasses of his, well, it’s a temptation, for certain. He’s off limits, and I think that’s the appeal. It’s wrong, oh so very, very, wrong. I just can’t seem to convince my mind of it.

These three men keep looking at me like I’m a prize, not the game, and for the first time in my life, I’m free of me. I’m not standing in my way, not anymore.
