werwolf wars SYNOPSIS

  Emily McKinley has been a prisoner in her own home since she began her first heat cycle. As a rare female wolf, and the alpha’s daughter, she has led a sheltered life. When Marcus Jackson comes to the pack, Emily is instantly drawn to him.

As the daughter of analpha, she is required to find a proper mate–another alpha. Marcus is everything she could possibly want in a mate and more, but he isn’t an alpha, and her father will never approve. Unable to deny their mutual attraction, Marcus and Emily find themselves falling for each other.

But Emily’s world comes crashing down when her father orders her to become a breeder for a misogynistic pack. She tries to protest her father’s decision, but the more Emily fights, the more-dire the situation becomes. Emily must make a choice, stay and lead a life as a submissive female, or run and put everyone she loves in danger.

*Forbidden Hope is 26,000 word prequel novella to The Werewolf Wars Series. This novella can be read ANYTIME within the series. No Spoilers. *

werewolf wars excerpts

Marcus poured the steaming milk into a mug and handed it to Emily. “It should put you right to sleep.” “Thanks.” She blew on the cup before placing it to her lips and taking a sip. “Tastes good.” “It was my mom’s recipe. The nutmeg helps calm you.” “You didn’t mention your parents before,” Emily commented. Marcus licked his lips and sighed. “They died when I was about twelve.”

After his parents deaths, he and his brothers had been inseparable. Now, they were gone too. A tick formed in his jaw and he swallowed hard, not wanting to appear weak in front of Emily. He drew in a quiet breath and composed himself.

“I’m sorry,” she whispered, glancing down into her mug. “It was hard. My mom was sick for a while. She kept getting worse and worse, but our pack doctor couldn’t figure out what the problem was. After a few months, she died. My dad didn’t last long after that. Losing them both so close together was difficult, but, at the same time, knowing that they loved each other so much…” he trailed off.

“A true love match. My mom told me about them once. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of an actual one. It all sounds so romantic. To live and die for each other. To have a physical and mental connection with each other.”

Marcus stared at her. She looked away, her emerald eyes darting anywhere but him. Everything seemed to click all at once for him. She was his true mate. It was the only possible explanation for the way he felt. The desire to claim her was as powerful as the yearning to spend time with her. Her lilac scent intrigued him, drew him in right from the start. He looked up and saw the slight part of her lips. Her breathing quickened and red crept over her face as if she were having a similar revelation.

“Thanks for the milk,” Emily stammered, setting the empty mug in the sink. She played with the purple sash on her robe for a moment. “I’ll see you in the morning.”

“Emily?” his hand shot out and grasped her wrist. “I…” She swallowed as she moved closer to him, her eyes blinking rapidly as her breath puffed against his face. His hand reached up to graze across her soft cheek before threading in her hair. Her tongue darted out to wet her pink, plump lips and he tilted his head to the side, entranced. Their lips grazed against each other, lightly touching at first before Emily deepened the kiss. He nibbled her bottom lip, pulling her flush against him. She melted into him for a few precious seconds, before she froze.

Emily’s hands pushed on his chest and she turned away from him. “We can’t do this,” she whispered, her voice thick with emotion. “Why? I know you feel it too.”

“You know how our world works, Marcus. I’m to be mated to another alpha to ensure the peace amongst our neighboring packs. If we go down this road, it will only end in heartbreak. I can’t do that,” she said hoarsely.

“So don’t think about the future. It’s not set in stone. Things can change. I can prove myself to your father. Just give me the chance. I can’t ignore whatever this is and I want to—need to see it through,” Marcus encouraged. He would show the alpha he was worthy.

Emily shook her head. Tears shone in her beautiful emerald eyes, and her bottom lip trembled as she suppressed a sob. “You don’t know my father.” She gave him one last fleeting look before bolting out of the kitchen.

Marcus grinned. They were going to be together. This was going to work and they could be happy together far away from Emmett and the Gulf Packs. He would keep her safe and they would marry and have their own family. Elation filled him at the thought. “Good!”

Marcus leaned forward capturing her soft, pink lips with his. She tasted like strawberries. He wove his hands into her hair, pulling her lithe body flush against his. Her cool fingers slipped beneath the hem of his shirt, and she began to draw lazy patterns on the small of his back. Marcus growled and pushed her against the tree trunk. His hands rolled up the bottom of her shirt, exposing her creamy torso.

“We can’t,” she whispered, but made no effort to stop him. “My father-” “Let’s not talk about him now. We only get a few minutes together, let’s not waste it thinking about him.” “But-” “Have you transitioned yet?” Emily shook her head. “Did you bring extra clothes?” Emily nodded. Marcus grinned. “You’ll wash my scent off when you shift. You can go for a swim in the creek to be extra safe.” Emily closed her eyes, smiling. “You’re getting pretty good at this.” “I wish I didn’t have to.”

Emily looked down at her hands before lifting his shirt up and pushing it over his head. Her nails grazed against the plains of his chest. “Em,” he ground out. She smirked, leaning forward, and placed a kiss to his lips. “I love you.” “I love you too.”

Marcus deepened the kiss, placing his hands on her bottom. He quickly lifted her up and backed her up against the tree . Her long legs wrapped around his waist, pulling him closer. She fit snugly against him. This is exactly how it’s supposed to be. We work together. She is my mate—my true love.

Desire filled him and he needed to show her how much her choice meant to him. He deepened the kiss, wanting to feel more of her. Emily pulled back far enough, allowing him to lift her top up and over her head. Marcus traced his fingers up her black lacy bra strap before reaching behind her and unsnapping it. She tossed the garment to the ground, and he recaptured her lips, molding their bodies together.

He grunted, enjoying the feel of her breasts pressed against him. Emily slid her hands down, fumbling with the button on his jeans a moment. Marcus gently set her back on her feet and shoved his boxers and jeans off while attempting to kick off his shoes. Emily giggled as he stumbled slightly, and he shot her a smile.

He watched as she slipped her feet out of her sandals and pushed her panties and shorts down her tanned legs. Marcus gritted his teeth as he took in the full sight of her. She was so beautiful. He’d seen her this way many times, but it always amazed him at how truly gorgeous she was. Her beauty expanded beyond her physical appearance.

Emily was the kindest, most caring person he’d ever met. She was everything he wanted. “You’re staring,” Emily teased. “And? So are you,” he said as her eyes slid up and down his body. “Stop talking! I want to feel you. It’s been too long,” she mumbled as he closed the distance between them. She jumped up, resuming their earlier position.

Sweets Books rated it 5 of 5 stars

I love this series. I always wanted to know Marcus & Emily’s story. She always seemed so outgoing but quite, but being able to see how she dealt with not being allowed much of anything. I’m not sure most young girls would survive being held prisoner in their own home by their dad.

Marcus, I always liked him in the other books. But now I have more of a understanding of how much he risked to be with Emily. He could of left years ago and never looked back. Instead he choose to stay with the pack just to be close to her.

In the end it’s a short read but I loved getting to see the beginning before Devon’s story. How everything came about, and why they ended were they ended up. I recommend the whole series!

Till next time – Sweets Books

Awesome prequel and love story
I really enjoyed reading this love story about Marcus and Emily. Also this story helps you to learn what the Werewolf wars are truly all about. Well written and extremely entertaining to read. Even though this is a prequel story it’s also a self-contained story. It can be read in any order of the series but I think its best at the beginning before the others. There are some love’s that will make you risk it all to be together. I was given a free copy for an honest review.

Kathleen Engelman rated it 5 of 5 stars

Goodness Gracious, I loved this book! It clearly explained Marcus and Emily’s story. I laughed, I cried, I got angry….what an emotional story! Very fast paced, and really gives a in-depth look into characters from Bethany Shaw’s first books in this series. A wonderful addition to an amazing series. I cannot wait for the next book! Another phenomenal read from a fabulous author! I received this book as an ARC from author.

Big Game Cover

Title:

Big Game: Hunted Love 1

Author:

Aden Lowe

Release Date:

September 15, 2014

Genre:

Western Romance

RECOMMENDED FOR AGES EIGHTEEN AND UP DUE TO EXPLICIT SEXUAL SITUATIONS, AND STRONG LANGUAGE

Synopsis:

When a legendary predator decides prize horses should be on his menu, Kate takes the advice of her neighbor ranchers and hires a big game hunter to track the mountain lion and remove the threat. The hunter arrives to take up the trail, but instead of the seasoned older man she expects, he’s young and impossibly sexy.

Freshly back from deployment to Afghanistan as a special forces operative, Jakob needs to clear his head of the horrors of war. When his uncle is injured, Jakob steps in to fulfill the older man’s commitment to hunt down a mountain lion on the other side of the state. The prospect of several days in the wilderness with only his horses and dogs for company sounds like the ideal opportunity. Except the infuriating female rancher insists on going along for the ride.

Excerpt:

A faint noise drew Jakob from the twilight that precedes waking, straight into full alert. Unsure what disturbed him, he lay still and allowed his eyes to open a bare slit. Just his luck that mountain lion would be prowling through camp. Unable to spot anything out of place, he sat up, careful not to move too quickly and get his head injury in an uproar again.

Splashing, louder than the stream flowing over the rocks, drew his attention. Fascination froze him in place for an instant, forcing him to just watch. At the creek, Kate straightened and squeezed water from her hair, then flipped it back to swing down her naked back. Water droplets clung to her pale skin like crystals, refracting the light and mesmerizing him.

She half-turned to retrieve something from the ground, revealing the curve of one breast. The sound of Jakob’s agonized groan must have carried, because she straightened and turned to face him, moving too quickly, and lost her balance.

Head wound forgotten, he leaped up and dove across the small camp area in an attempt to catch her before she could fall into the icy water. She recovered just as he reached her, and stood facing him, breathing hard. Something in her face had changed and for the first time since meeting her, Jakob felt as if she actually saw him. The unreachable Ice Queen was gone, and in her place…

About the Author:

Aden Lowe:

As an English major in college, I took a summer job as a proofreader for a small town newspaper, and got hooked on editing. I also worked my way through college training horses. After graduation, I landed a job for a small independent editing firm, and stayed there for 15 yrs. An old friend, Lucian, approached me to edit his special fiction project, and I got hooked. After an insane few months editing his Dom Wars series for him, Lucian convinced me I should try my hand at writing as well. I’m his co-author for Round Six, the final Dom Wars installment, and we will co-write the White Knight Academy series as well. And in Sept 2014, I’ll release my debut solo work, an Erotic Western with BDSM elements, “Big Game: A Hunted Love Novella”. In addition, I have a military series in the planning stages.

Author Bio

My name is Lucian Bane, and I’m an Ineffable Dom. That just means, do yourself a favor and please don’t try to fit me into categories. Complicated Dom, Intricate Dom, or Confounding Dom work too.

I don’t want a woman I can break, or overpower, or exercise my dominance over. I want a woman I can come undone with. I want a woman I can jump off the cliff with into that abyss of holy hell, this is beyond me, beyond my control.

I think there are many men like myself, and I hope my writing will be a map for them. (A map for women as well, to let them know Doms like this exist.) I want to challenge them to go for the complete power exchange with a woman, but don’t be a coward and not give the same that they demand or expect. Consider that when you give one hundred percent of yourself to a person, there is no more of you to give away. You now belong to them the way they belong to you.

Inner Doms need a master to train them. I once bowed to my Dom’s reckless and tireless desires, but when I gained control, he bowed to my will. The transformation made me into what I am today. What many would call an Ineffable Dom. But its equal term in the Vanilla world, in my opinion, is a real man.

When Gladiator Inc, an adult toy company expands their market to familiarize the ‘vanilla’ world with the elements of BDSM, the result is a pay-per-view reality show with video feeds streamed live to subscribers. The show, Dom Wars, is a competition to determine the Top Dom that will become the spokesperson for the company. The contestants all wear cameras to film every moment and angle of the competition, while they complete various challenges to determine who has ultimately Dominated various elements of themselves. The hero and heroine of the series, Lucian Bane and Tara Reese, have barely made it into the Sixth and Final Round of Dom Wars. This week-long Survival Round will determine the Top Dom, once and for all. The contestants are taken to an uninhabited island, where they will have to cross formidable jungle terrain. First Dom to reach the boat anchored on the other side of the island wins the million dollars and the title. Seems simple. Except Lucian’s old adversary, the Sadist Jase Duff from Round One, has been tasked with making sure none of the five teams make it to the boat. If he is successful, he wins the prize, only it’s not money that Jase Duff cares about, its revenge on Lucian and Tara. And his sadistic need to inflict pain makes it game on.

Fun Facts about Aden…

  1. Might, or might not, have bad dreams about penguins.
  2. Had no idea who Justin Bieber was until a few days ago when Wheels enlightened me and changed my life forever. Not.
  3. Until recently, hadn’t gone to see a movie at the theater since “The Horse Whisperer”. I’m not happy about sitting in the dark with that many strangers.
  4. Loves babysitting the neighbors Little Doms, except when they’re flushing my bathroom rug, or doing something worse.
  5. Drinks a mixture of coffee and hot cocoa instead of coffee.
  6. Not into sports – balls aren’t intended to be hit, batted, kicked, thrown, or otherwise abused.
  7. Lived up to a lifelong goal of making a woman wet her panties… just not in the intended way ;)

RECOMMENDED FOR AGES EIGHTEEN AND UP DUE TO EXPLICIT SEXUAL SITUATIONS, AND STRONG LANGUAGE

When Gladiator Inc, an adult toy company expands their market to familiarize the ‘vanilla’ world with the elements of BDSM, the result is a pay-per-view reality show with video feeds streamed live to subscribers. The show, Dom Wars, is a competition to determine the Top Dom that will become the spokesperson for the company.
The contestants all wear cameras to film every moment and angle of the competition, while they complete various challenges to determine who has ultimately Dominated various elements of themselves.
The hero and heroine of the series, Lucian Bane and Tara Reese, have barely made it into the Sixth and Final Round of Dom Wars. This week-long Survival Round will determine the Top Dom, once and for all.
The contestants are taken to an uninhabited island, where they will have to cross formidable jungle terrain. First Dom to reach the boat anchored on the other side of the island wins the million dollars and the title.
Seems simple. Except Lucian’s old adversary, the Sadist Jase Duff from Round One, has been tasked with making sure none of the five teams make it to the boat.
If he is successful, he wins the prize, only it’s not money that Jase Duff cares about, its revenge on Lucian and Tara. And his sadistic need to inflict pain makes it game on!

I’m an Ineffable Dom. That just means, do yourself a favor and please don’t try to describe me or fit me into your categories. Complicated Dom, Intricate Dom, Confounding Dom work too.

I love very much the soft side of a woman. Not just her body, but everything on the inside– her passion, her intelligence, her convictions, her delicate tenderness. But the one fetish that might be a part of what makes me an Ineffable Dom is that I love her strengths. I love a woman that isn’t afraid to look me in the eyes and say ‘make me’. But I need it to be real, not staged, not pretended. She has to be a fighter at her core the way I’m a Dom at my core. I want an equal that is willing to come hard against me in every sense of the word, exhaust me. I want her so deep inside me that we’re lost in each other. I want her to never doubt that I will always use my power to adore her, protect her, liberate her. I don’t want a woman I can break, or overpower, or exercise my dominance over, I want a woman I can come undone with. I want a woman I can jump off the cliff with into that abyss of holy hell, this is beyond me, beyond my control. The greatest fear of most people is losing themselves or unraveling their roots. My greatest fear is not finding a woman I can take that plunge with. Yes, it’s a huge risk. That’s the yin and the yang of it. And while the risk titillates my Dom, it’s the ineffable fruit of that risk that moves him. He knows he has to have it. He knows he’s supposed to have. And he’s prepared to dominate for it.

I think there are many men like myself, and I hope my writing will be a map for them. A map for women as well, to let them know Doms like this exist. I’d like to call them out of the woodwork. Help men join with their natural inner Doms in a way that I think is one of the most fulfilling experiences there are. I want to challenge them all to go for the complete power exchange with a woman, but don’t be a coward and not give the same that they demand or expect. And consider that when you give one hundred percent of yourself to a person, there is no more of you to give away. You now belong to them the way they belong to you.

Inner Doms are dogs that need a master to train them. I once bowed to my Dom’s reckless and tireless desires, but when I gained control, he bowed to my will. The transformation made me into what I am today. What many would call an Ineffable Dom. But its equal term in the Vanilla world, in my opinion, is a real man!

As an English major in college, I took a summer job as a proofreader for a small town newspaper, and got hooked on editing. I also worked my way through college training horses. After graduation, I landed a job for a small independent editing firm, and stayed there for 15 yrs. An old friend, Lucian, approached me to edit his special fiction project, and I got hooked. After an insane few months editing his Dom Wars series for him, Lucian convinced me I should try my hand at writing as well. I’m his co-author for Round Six, the final Dom Wars installment, and we will co-write the White Knight Academy series as well. And in Sept 2014, I’ll release my debut solo work, an Erotic Western with BDSM elements, “Big Game: A Hunted Love Novella”. In addition, I have a military series in the planning stages.

Penumbra Book Summary

In one night, I lost everything: my hopes and dreams, my best friend, and Shadow’s heart. He told me he loved me, but it was just a lie.

The Midnight Society has fallen, reduced to ashes by a monster–a person whom we all once trusted. The betrayal has shattered our lives forever and Shadow, Lord of the Midnight Society, finds himself at a crossroad.

One road leads him further down the path of vengeance, filled with unending violence and dead bodies. The other road leads to me. However, our path to happiness is paved with broken glass and razorblades, and at some point, one of us is going to fall.

Welcome to the world of the Midnight Society.

Logan discovered both love and heartbreak at the tender age of seven, when the pretty little blue-eyed girl next door stole his Kit-Kat bar and shared it with the bad boy from across the street. Devastated, Logan found solace by escaping into imaginary worlds he forged with words, creating kingdoms where the chivalrous knight always got the princess.

Twenty three years later Logan spends his days in a suit and tie, working for the government on matters of network security. However his thoughts never strayed too far from the incendiary nature of love — the passionate fire that’s both scintillating and dangerous. Obsessed with exploring the steamy and mysterious side of human nature, Logan continues to create worlds filled with thrills, mystery, and of course, sex.

5 – Roses – Unique Story Telling / Creative Writing

This author takes us on another journey of suspense, mystery and dangerous heart pounding adventures.  How clever and enthralling, be prepared to be swept away, into the lives of those who are in this secret club:  The Midnight Society.  The story picks up where Book One, Semblance leaves off, the entire plot flows so easily and you become so captivated with the characters, you feel as if you are there experiencing every single twist and turn they go through.

5 – Hearts – Soul Mates – Lovers

Aria is struggling to heal her battered and bruised heart after a whirlwind of a romance suddenly comes to a screeching, soul wrenching immediate halt.  This leading lady holds her own though and never loses her commitment to protect those she is devoted to.  Her friends… her family… she remains ever loyal.  Her strength to overcome her raging desires will be tested as the remaining Midnight Society members band together to find their enemy.

“All that bullshit about wanting to leave The Midnight Society, taking me away and traveling, making love in exotic locations, was all a string of words meant to keep me around so I could be your fuck-buddy, am I right?”  ~Aria

Piano-Legs

Shadow Tremaine is still as reserved, mysterious and secretive as ever, revenge is the only thing on his mind and he will conquer his need to bring justice to those that have suffered from the hands of his enemy.  This hero will never stop the raging need to avenge his friends and family and destroy the enemy seeking out his loved ones and burning a hole in his psyche, even if it means losing the only woman he has ever loved.

“My mind has been preoccupied, if you haven’t noticed.  I’m sorry if holding your hand, whispering sweet nothings in you ear, and taking you away on an extended vacation is not at the top of my list at the moment.”  ~Shadow

5 – Lips – Erotic Delight

Yes this author knows how to write spicy scenes that not only will have your panties dropping but they will burst into flames.  This couple’s hunger for each other had me sweating and wishing for my own partner to quench my thirst.  Shadow is the type that keeps emotions inside yet his burning desire for Aria makes the animal in him emerge forceful and passionate until she submits to paradise. 

Shadow was kissing me with a sense of urgency, his mouth was the coolness that could vanquish the raging fires within me.

His thrusts were slow at first, but quickened in pace as he placed his hands on my knees and pushed my legs apart, forcing my inner-muscles to clench tightly around his cock.

Synopsis

Losing it all…is a new beginning

Amanda Legend grew up rich and privileged. Anything was hers for the asking, thanks to her superstar father. That is until Amanda’s honesty about bad behavior from her soon-to-be-new Step Mom, a former school chum, lands Amanda on the outs with her beloved father. No Trust fund. No rarified world. Even if Amanda never wanted the LA lifestyle, she now must survive on her own. 

A come-back takes heart….

Ryan Sinclair was nearing the pinnacle of his movie career when he drove his Porsche off Malibu Canyon Road. Lucky to be alive, post rehab he’s ready to start the long climb back to the top. But to prove to Hollywood that he won’t relapse, he’s required to get a sober companion. 

A job she never wanted with the man who helped destroy her life…

Amanda Legend may loathe the entertainment world, but she understands the rules. She also knows Ryan Sinclair, understands alcoholics (she grew up around a few) and now, after being banished from her posh lifestyle, needs a paycheck to get to New York. Amanda accepts the job as sober companion to Ryan Sinclair for his first film post rehab. But Amanda must learn to ignore her attraction to Ryan, because falling for a guy like him would pull her back into a world she desperately wants to escape.

Synopsis

A promise to keep….

Honoring her mother’s last wish, Lane Channing vows to follow her dreams. She takes the ‘big risk’ and leaves her small Kansas town behind and heads to LA, the city of dreams. She’s got a stellar job lined up, an old jeep, and 20 bucks to last her to her first paycheck. Her hopes shatter when she arrives to find her job’s been given to someone else.  Now she’s broke and will soon be living on the streets if she doesn’t do something fast. Welcome to cutthroat – Lane is most certainly not in Kansas anymore.

On the cusp of success…

Dillon MacAvoy has one goal–to become a star–whatever it takes. Even if it means honing his bad-boy can’t-be-tamed-and-forever-single image. Besides the image isn’t far from the truth. Dillon cares only about his younger brother and his career. He’s on the brink of superstardom if he can just decide on the next right script. But for that, he needs a script reader he can trust.

In a strange twist of fate…

Lane Channing is Dillon’s last chance. If Lane lasts the summer without becoming MacAvoy’s latest conquest, she’s guaranteed a job in entertainment. No problem, as long as she can ignore the heat that pulses through her every time Dillon is in the room. After all, love and commitment with a sweet, hometown girl would only ruin the Dillon MacAvoy brand.

Book Review

 

100000528822250pizapw1402023676

I was introduced to this series by AToMR Tours.  I signed up to read and review book #1 and enjoyed it so much I just had to read and review Broken Glamour, Book #2 in the Glamour Series. I am so happy to have found this wonderful series!

The title of this novel can be seen throughout this whole novel, starting right from the beginning.  Each of the main characters is broken in very different ways, yet also much the same. The story is emotional with both sad and tender elements.

Can LOVE mend what is broken in this hero and heroines hearts???

Open the first page and begin a journey through their world to discover the answer…

 4.0 Roses of Writing Raves

Broken Glamour stays right in line from where Hard Glamour left off.  About a year has passed and one wedding is taking place while another is being planned.  Will either marriage be a happy one? Shh… I am not going to tell. You will just have to read and find out for yourself. All I will say is that a father and daughters relationship will be placed in  jeopardy and two people who know one another become an unlikely star couple.

The writing flows from the pages. The story line lends itself so that the reader wants to keep on reading to know more, more, more…

I did not want to put this novel down. I stayed up nights reading it. Actually starting the read as soon as I received it and ahead of others.

Each chapter lends a voice to the main couple in this novel. So each chapter has POV sections that focus on either Amanda oe Ryan.

Grammar  is excellent, the other story characters float in and out to enhance the story.

I have to admit my favorite parts are the scenes with the dogs…

Overall this was a wonderfully written modern-day romance read.  The hero and heroine had many ups and downs. These ups and downs did have an emotional impact on me. Especially since I am an emotional reader anyway. The tears fell for me in chapters twenty and twenty-two. With tears falling faster and harder in the latter chapter. I had my pillowcase  soaked in my tears. Their romance was so tender and heartfelt…

4.0 Romance Rave

Ah! This novel was filled with kisses, touches, and so much more. Each chapter had some element of romance. From sweet and gentle to hot and naughty!!!  Whether it was actual or suggested, romance can be found from beginning to end in this read…

Here are some of my favorite quotes from Broken Glamour.

“Amanda, Amanda, Amanda.” The whisper of her name on my lips, a tremble from the base of my spine rumbled through my body. My breath jolted out of me in sharp bursts. I doubled forward until the hot throbbing jolt of come spurted from me. I pressed my forehead to the cool tile surface, my body spent from the rush. This desire for Amanda was deep and fierce and dangerous and I didn’t want it to end. ~ RYAN

He leaned closer. He whispered into my ear, “I’m going to break every rule when it comes to you.” He pulsed his finger against my clit. “I am going to sit here and make you come right now in front of all these people. And then, then I am going to take you home and I’m going to fuck you. I’m going to fuck you all night and all of tomorrow and I am going to fuck you so long and so hard that there is no doubt in your mind that you are mine. That I have claimed you and that you are no one else’s, not now and not ever. Not if you leave me, not if I leave you. It doesn’t matter, Amanda. Do you understand?” ~ RYAN

 

Tonight, letting Ryan touch me like that, in such an intimate way in such a public place had meant something to me. More than just getting off. I allowed it to happen and I gave him a piece of me

My mistake. ~ AMANDA

 

Cool air-filled my lungs and my practiced calm clung to my face. Showing emotion, telling Ryan my feelings, would get me nowhere. I would die inside, but that would be my private experience, not one I shared with him. I’d already given him too much. Shame surged through my chest. ~AMANDA

I hope you will enjoy this read and series as much as I have. Now just waiting for book 3 in the series to come out. This one will be about Amanda’s brother…

Synopsis

Whoever said money couldn’t buy happiness has never starved a day in their lives.

 
My name is Aria Valencia, a third year classical music student at the university, and I was down to my last dollar. Some nights, I seriously considered working at the rippers just to make ends meet, but the thought of my dad’s spirit–God rest his soul–scowling at me while I danced up on some drooling degenerate was enough to turn me off the idea completely.
 
And then one night, chance came knocking on my door under the guise of the Midnight Society, a secret cabal comprised of the most wealthy and influential souls this side of the Universe. Their leader was a man named Shadow, who was equally enigmatic as he was gorgeous and, for some mystifying reason, had his dark brooding eyes focused on me.
 
Seduced by the promises of fame and fortune in exchange for a seemingly innocent request, I soon found myself drawn into a provocative world filled with both vast riches and unending lies and it didn’t take long for me to realize what being a part of the Midnight Society actually entailed: shiny things, sensual romance, and dead bodies.
 
Being with Shadow came with a terrible price, one that I wasn’t willing to pay. There’s a dark side to every love story, and this one was mine.
