SYNOPSIS

ASHTON

My life stopped when I lost the love of my love before we even had the chance to begin. But now my heart has found another reason to start beating.

ACACIA

He’s a walking contradiction. One minute he’s rude and cold, the next, caring and passionate. He enters my life and steals my heart with his deeply ingrained scars.

Can he let go of the ghost from his past and let me in?

APRIL

This isn’t my story; I’m just the spectator in the background. And I’m dead.

EXCERPT
What the fuck is he doing here?
Taking a deep, shaky breath, I open the door to a tall, brooding, figure of a man. His look is smouldering as he takes me in. He doesn’t say anything just looks, his eyes flit all across my face, from my mouth to my eyes as he did the night before, then steps forward cautiously.
“Acacia,” Ashton breathes my name, all the emotion I’ve been feeling comes bubbling up to the surface, like a volcano ready to erupt.
He reaches out his hand, I watch as his fingers reach my face, he cups my cheek and strokes my cheek with the pad of his thumb tenderly, I lean into his big hand as the feelings I have overcome me and the tears start to well in my eyes, he’s so confusing. “I had to come, I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t think. I needed to see you.” His words are slurry, I know he is drunk.
“Ashton, you’re drunk,” I murmur even though all I want is to kiss him.
“Yes, because of you!” he snaps.
His body is flushed to mine. Our lips are only inches apart as he looks at me with lust and anger.
“What are you doing to me?” he hisses.
“Nothing,” I whisper.
“You complicate my life. You mess with my mind,” he growls. “You’re making me forget her!” He hits his fist onto the wall right next to my head, making me jump.
“Then let me go,” I whisper again.
“But I don’t want you to go. You’re doing something to me, something I can’t explain, but you’re making me feel alive like I didn’t die with her that day… I want you in my life.” His voice was soft and intense. I know he is talking with his heart and soul.
A feeling in my stomach like butterflies starts to flutter around as he leans toward me. He uses his other hand to cup my neck and his thumb goes under my chin as he tips my head back a little, his fingers tangle into my hair at the back of my neck as his he inches his mouth closer to mine. He stops merely millimeters from me until I can feel his breath on my face. “But I hate you for making everything so hard for me!” he hisses.
“And I hate you because of this back and forth!” I snap at him. Before I can take a breathe or think this could be wrong, Ashton crashes his lips to mine. I moan loudly with the mixed sensations of shock and lust. He roughly increases the pressure against my lips until I push back against him, my hands go to his hair and I roughly pull him closer, making him groan with pain. His tongue seeks entrance to my mouth, licking, biting, and sucking till I open up a little for him. His tongue finds mine, owning me and tangling in desperation I match him, giving him back just as much. Every feeling I’ve had for him over the last couple of days, wow how has it only been days, I feel like I met him so much longer than a few days ago. Sadness, anger, confusion, lust, it all goes into this one kiss, I may never get this chance again. I place my one hand on his face, feeling through his beard remembering how it felt on my finger tips the last time I got this close to him.
He pulls his lips from mine, moving his mouth to my neck and continues his rough kisses. I know he will stop any second in regret, if not now he will regret it in the morning. The thought pains me, “I hate you,” I whisper even though it’s total opposite of my feelings.
Ashton lifts his head and smiles at me before catching my lips for another intense kiss. His tongue almost fights with mine for domination desperately and I surrender to him. Finally, he stops to look at me. A tear makes its way steadily down my cheek until it hits his thumb and he wipes it away.
“I hate you,” he whispers with a smile on his face. Pushing the hair from my face he leans down to kiss my forehead. I melt into his arms as he holds me close and realise in that moment that I need him more than my next breath and I’m irrevocably in love with Ashton Kennedy, but instead I whisper, “I hate you, too.”

SYNOPSIS

It all started with a wish…

Evangeline Grant, or Evan as you'd know her (if you liked living), grew up surrounded by love. And because of all that love, she had one wish in life. It was loaded, but it was simple.

A wish that left her heartbroken and hopeless…

Unfortunately, years down the road, that wish was obliterated. A secret she kept hidden away, suffering alone with only her parents to comfort her in her dark times. But she wasn't the only one keeping a secret.

Until he gave her hope…

Then Mr. Tall, Dark, and F***ing Godly himself had to show up and flip the script. For the first time in years, Evan found herself with hope; all thanks to Emmanuel Silva. As they each face their demons, a decision has to be made. A decision that will change the course of not only their lives but a precious little girl's as well.

And helped her wish of happily ever after come true…

*This book contains adult content (lots and lots of swearing, inappropriate comments, drinking, and definite sexy times) and is intended for readers 18 and older*

**This is book two in a series, but each book will be a STANDALONE with a new couple. NO cliffhanger**

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Kelsey is a romance hoarder, a Bob Seger groupie, and a die-hard fan of all things leather, fringe, silver, classy, and full of sparkles.
She was never a writer in the normal sense, but she was always a creator of stories. From Barbie's to The Sims, Kelsey made sure they lived…interesting lives. Summer of '15, Marcus Mumford's voice crooning in her ear, a character started to speak to Kelsey and refused to let go. This character put her on a path of following a dream she never even knew she'd had until it came true.

When she's not lost in the world of Willowbrook and all its inhabitants, exploring a new planet, or finding new places to lose herself in characters, she can be found deep in the world of other authors, trying out her baking skills on her family and friends, learning--then tweaking--new recipes from the Food Network, immersing herself in good music, enjoying the California sunshine with her two fur babies, relaxing and cackling like a loon with the people close to her, or disappearing as she binge-watches seasons in a day on Netflix.

EXCERPT 

When I enter Club 7, the first thing that gets my attention is a stunning woman in a bright green blouse and tight skinny jeans that accentuate a lush, round ass. While she seductively combs her reddish-brown copper curls over one shoulder as she flirts heavily with an Italian bartender, I recognize that it’s Mary.
Although I only know her as Adriano’s little sister, I’m drawn to her tonight and stand behind her stool, planting both palms on the bar counter and caging her in, enjoying how petite she is. She’s short, but all woman. And the handful of times I’ve seen her since I initiated into her brother’s Syndicate, I’ve noticed that her smooth skin looks like it’s photoshopped.
Bending down, I whisper into her ear, “Mary, stop flirting with him before Adriano kills him.”
“Some room, please,” she chides, lifting a brow conceitedly, and my gaze strays to the beauty mark right above the corner of her plump lips.
Disregarding her statement the same way she disregarded mine, I push my chest against her back and hear her sharp intake of breath, noting that there’s something different about her today. There’s a certain sadness marring her upturned hazel eyes – that are fringed with long, dark lashes – that’s contradictory to her usual spirited expression.
Then, all of a sudden, she jumps off the stool. “Let’s dance.”
Confused by her behavior, I follow her to the dance floor, curious to see what this vixen’s endgame is.
Just as Mary turns around, she glares at me when another girl ogles me.
I pull up my shoulders. “What—”
But Mary catches me off guard by winding her arms around my neck and pressing her breasts against my chest. When she looks up at me, her smile is a little crooked and bold, as if there’s a hidden passion inside the innocent girl she portrays, waiting to be touched, waiting to be fucked. This is the first time she’s put her hands on me, and my dick hardens in response.
My arms snake around her middle, and when she peeks over my shoulder, I smoothly rotate us in a semi-circle to find a blond guy scowling at me.
He starts to move toward us, but I cock my head, mouthing, “Fuck. Off.” And I glare right back at him.
Wait a minute. Isn’t that Keano? The man Mary’s dating? So she’s using me…
Smirking, I pull her flush against me as she spins us around again, most likely to watch him.
However, I distract her when I dip my head, my lips against the shell of her ear. “Trying to make Keano jealous, Mary?”

About Author Soraya Naomi

I read many genres but favor intense, seductive, and provocative novels where the male character loves fiercely, without remorse or boundaries. I also adore forbidden love tales and have an odd fascination with kidnapping romances. No, I don't secretly want to be kidnapped, though!
I have a passionate obsession with the written word and indulge in chocolate pastries much too often.
My debut novel For Fallon (Chicago Syndicate, #1) was released on July 26, 2014. I’m honored that For Fallon won “Best Breakout Novel 2014” in the Novel Grounds Semi Annual Literary Awards.

Despite having narrowly escaped death's clutches, Christopher Barlow is grateful for nothing. His capacity to love has been crushed. He hates everyone and everything, completely unable to see past the gray stain of misery that coats his perception of the world. It's only after he involuntarily joins a band of depressed misfits who are struggling to overcome their own problems, does Christopher start to re-evaluate his lot in life. What could they possibly learn from one another? How could they possibly help each other to heal? And the question that Christopher asks himself over and over again... can he learn to love again? He's about to find out as he embarks upon a cross country trip with a beautiful woman who is going blind, a boy with terminal cancer, and an abuse victim who can't decide whether she wants to live or die. Four people with nothing in common but their destination. They will encounter adventure, thrills, loss and love. And within their travels they will learn the greatest lesson of all. The hard truth about sunshine... Warning: This book deals with some tough issues including suicide and sexual abuse.

Excerpt:

“SO YOU’RE GONNA want to keep your toes on the tail of the board and grip the rails under your chest like this,” Dylan said as he lay across the surfboard to show me the basics of his favorite pastime on the secluded stretch of beach. Not that I was paying much attention to the words coming out of his mouth. I was much more interested in the way his muscles flexed beneath the skintight Body Glove wetsuit he wore. As he pushed himself up into a standing position, my gaze traveled down the broad expanse of his back and down to his ass. “See how my dominant leg is in the back, and— Ace? Are you paying attention?” “Mhmm,” I murmured as I bit down on my lower lip and continued my perusal. Dylan turned to face me, and his hands went to his hips. “Oh yeah?” he said when I looked up. “What did I just say?” Taking a step forward, I gave him a cocky grin and tugged him off the surfboard and onto the sand until he was flush against me. Then I let my hands roam down over the firm, round muscles of his ass. “Something about being a dominant in the back,” I said, nipping at his lobe. “So why don’t you turn around?” A groan of frustration left Dylan then, but his head tilted to the side to let my lips trail down his neck. “You’re not gonna feel so cocky when you can’t get up on that board.” “Oh, I can always get it up, don’t you worry.” His hands covered my chest and he gently pushed me away. “How about you prove it, hotshot?” Then he pointed to the longboard I’d rented for the weekend. “Why don’t you show me how it’s done.” “It’s more fun watching you.” “Ace. Get your ass on that board.” I squinted in the sun and grinned. “You gonna be this bossy all weekend?” “If you’re lucky.” I took a step back so I was by my board, and crossed my arms. I had my wetsuit on, but it was still undone and hanging around my hips while Dylan walked me through this process step by step, and my move had the desired effect. He rubbed a hand up the back of his neck and over his hair, leaving it tousled and oh so sexy. “What?” I asked. “I’m back on my side of the board.” “Don’t try and act innocent with me, Locke. I’m trying to teach you a new skill. One that will keep you from hurting yourself. And you’re standing there being all…” He waved his hand up and down, gesturing to my exposed upper body. “Yes?” “See. Stop it,” he said, and then pointed to the board. “And zip up that damn wetsuit so I can’t see all your muscles.” I arched a brow as I moved to slip my arms through the stretchy synthetic material, and when I reached for the zipper and pulled it up to the base of my skull, Dylan groaned. “Okay, that’s almost worse than no wetsuit.” “I’m sorry. You’re not checking me out, are you? Because you’re supposed to be paying close attention to teaching me something that could save my life,” I said as I turned around and made a show of bending down to get on the board. “You having fun right now?” Dylan asked. “Maybe a little.” “Yeah, well, let’s hope that holds true when the wave dumps you on your ass.” I let out a sigh and gripped the board just as he’d told me, because the truth of the matter was, I had never surfed a day in my life. I grew up in Chicago, for God’s sake. But Dylan, with his sun-kissed hair, long, lean body, and eyes the color of the sea, looked right at home with the sun shining down on him as his feet sank into the sand by my head. “Let’s try this a couple more times here on land, and then we’ll get you out in the water. We won’t have you trying to stand up just yet. But if you can get the hang of at least catching the wave into the shore, we might be able to progress.” He crouched down and said, “Remember, toes on the tail of the board and grip the rails, and then push up.” As I did as he instructed, I paused in the push-up position and was rewarded when he leaned in and took my lips in a sweet kiss. “Again,” he whispered, and I moved back down to repeat the move, and this time when I paused, I was rewarded with a deeper kiss. When he pulled away too soon, I grumbled and he laughed, straightening. “Any more of that and we won’t make it into the water. On your feet, Locke, it’s time to hit the waves.”   Wedlocked-AN

About Brooke Blaine:

You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew how to read; she used to tell her mother that curling up with one at 4 a.m. before elementary school was her ‘quiet time.’ Not much has changed except for the espresso I.V. pump she now carries around and the size of her onesie pajamas.
She is the author of Flash Point, a romantic suspense standalone, as well as the co-author of the erotic series, A Desperate Man, with Ella Frank. The latter has scarred her conservative southern family for life, bless their hearts. Licked, a romantic comedy, will be released November 11th, 2015 and is the first in the L.A. Liaisons series.
If you’d like to get in touch with her, she’s easy to find - just keep an ear out for the Rick Astley ringtone that’s dominated her cell phone for ten years.
