~Book Review~ *CREDENCE* by Penelope Douglas

CREDENCE

by Penelope Douglas

Three of them, one of her, and a remote cabin in the woods. Let the hot, winter nights ensue…

Tiernan de Haas doesn’t care about anything anymore. The only child of a film producer and his starlet wife, she’s grown up with wealth and privilege but not love or guidance. Shipped off to boarding schools from an early age, it was still impossible to escape the loneliness and carve out a life of her own. The shadow of her parents’ fame followed her everywhere.

And when they suddenly pass away, she knows she should be devastated. But has anything really changed? She’s always been alone, hasn’t she?

Jake Van der Berg, her father’s stepbrother and her only living relative, assumes guardianship of Tiernan who is still two months shy of eighteen. Sent to live with him and his two sons, Noah and Kaleb, in the mountains of Colorado, Tiernan soon learns that these men now have a say in what she chooses to care and not care about anymore.

As the three of them take her under their wing, teach her to work and survive in the remote woods far away from the rest of the world, she slowly finds her place among them.

And as a part of them.

She also realizes that lines blur and rules become easy to break when no one else is watching.

One of them has her.

The other one wants her.

But he…

He’s going to keep her.

She lives in Las Vegas with her husband and their daughter.

 

 

 

 

 

Tiernan de Haas is a strong female heroine, don't get me wrong, however she has been totally alone, secluded and immature especially to be making decisions about relations relating to her education, mental health and body.  Following the deaths of both parents together, sorta like a suicide pact, she receives word to live with her father’s stepbrother and only living relative Jake Van der Berg and his two sons, Kaleb and Noah. 





In the secluded mountains of Colorado away from any towns, people or civilization, Tiernan soon finds out what home, hope, feelings and love are all about.  But lines and boundaries are being cris-crossed and blurred for the heroine was raised in a wealthy household lacking in parental dicipline, guidance and loving support.  



 

Now Penelope Douglas is a master story teller because you feel being up in these snow capped mountains, when she writes she pulls you right into the setting she sets.  You feel like you are right in front of the fireplace, you can see yourself feeding the animals, you can see yourself hunting, fishing and swimming in and around this homesteads rivers and lakes.  Now that is a true artist.  







It's not all love and games soon Tiernan will have to do battle with her feelings of home, health, love, education and life.  Don't miss out on this erotic, forbidden, even taboo tale of hope, loss, love and life.

Sneak Peak at Chapter 1:

Chapter 1 May 2015

All I wanted to do was hide out in the Melbourne hotel room until it was time to leave for the airport. Jeanette had offered to fly back to Perth with me, but I hadn’t wanted to ruin her special weekend with Travis. ‘I can’t do this anymore. I hope you find what you’re looking for. Suzie.’ My two-sentence parting note was written proof that I had finally left Brendon. With her room only one floor below Brendon’s, I was certain he would come looking for me once he’d discovered I’d gone. After our fight, I’d told him I needed to be alone but as soon as he left I’d gathered up my things and went to my friend for help. I had my phone turned off so Brendon couldn’t call me but as expected, that hadn’t stopped him from phoning Jeanette. I had asked her to say I wasn’t there but I don’t think he believed her, because it wasn’t long before he was banging on the door demanding to see me. Calling out, Jeanette had once again stated I wasn’t there. I knew he wouldn’t be following me to the airport because he had a game to play. His team were scheduled to play at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) in two hours’ time. Soon it was time to leave and once out in the street I managed to get a cab straight away. After a tearful parting with my best friend I shut the car door, effectively shutting the door on my life as I knew it. Throughout the long flight home, I kept replaying the scene over and over in my head. The way he had man-handled me out of the shower and then to beat me with his belt, against my wishes, was the last straw. It was undoubtedly the most frightened I had been during our so-called relationship. Even that first day when I had put myself in his hands and let him tie me up, I had trusted him more then than I did now six months later. It wasn’t until we were coming into Perth that a terrifying thought occurred. I was so distraught at my brave decision to finally break free of Brendon, that I forgot all about another more dangerous guy waiting for me back home – Leon Graham, my stalker. Common sense told me that Graham wouldn’t be at the airport. For a start, he’d assume I was still in Melbourne, at least until after the game. Plus, I was hoping he would keep his distance now because of the court order. I was sure the last thing he wanted was to be arrested again. But still, images and thoughts of him continued to plague me; from his no-teeth smile to rubbing his thumbs over my hands. What if he had a spy in Melbourne? Also, my flatmate was away for the weekend so I would be totally alone, defenceless; but no, Jason had assured me Graham didn’t know where I lived. Jason! I couldn’t use my mobile phone until we had landed, but as soon as passengers were given the all-clear I switched it on and made the call…

Sweet Alibi Adriane Leigh Ecover.jpg

 

 

AP new - synopsis.jpg

 

 

From USA Today Bestselling author Adriane Leigh comes a passionate contemporary romance about giving in to desire so sharp and sweet it threatens to consume…

 

Georgia Montgomery is desperate for an escape from the life she’s been leading. The perfect job, the perfect apartment, the perfect boyfriend—all are on the cusp of driving her over the edge. On a whim, she buys a beach house on the North Carolina coast, eager to spend a summer with her college friends. She thinks she’s found the perfect balance, until one pleasure-seeking playboy turns her world on its axis. Georgia tries to ignore the tornado of emotion that sweeps through her system whenever Tristan Howell is near, but just like an addiction, one look, one taste, one touch is never enough.

 

The chemistry is scorching and it isn’t long before the slow burn ignites into a full-blown wildfire that threatens to consume anything in its path. But Georgia and Tristan can’t shelter their love from the outside world, and the moments of exquisite passion they share aren’t enough to sustain the relationship. When scars from the past resurface–will their hearts meld together as one? Or will outside forces tear them apart, leaving an empty shell where love and passion once thrived?

 

*Note: The characters in Sweet Alibi are real and flawed–they make bad decisions and learn hard lessons. It contains a love triangle, a sweet alpha-male with a broken heart, and a leading lady that doesn’t always know what she wants. If you love a character-driven romance with a hard-fought happily-ever-after, Sweet Alibi is for you. (Formerly published as The Morning After and Light in Morning duet, now with more than 10,000 words of never-before-published BONUS content!

 

 

AP new - excerpt.jpg

 

 

Gavin tossed my heavy duffel bag and I caught it just before it slammed into my chest.

    “Shithead,” I grumbled as he led the way up the beach house stairs. He hustled, taking the steps two at a time. I knew he was anxious to see Drew. A few days was the longest they’d been apart in their short relationship and from the way he talked you’d think his dick was about to fall off from lack of use. I only hoped their room was out of earshot of mine.

    Gavin knocked on the door and then stepped in. I heard footsteps pounding on wooden floors and then was blindsided when the petite form of Drew launched into Gavin. An oomph escaped his lungs before their lips connected and I heard wet tongues and small moans.

    “Seriously?” I said with a grunt. Gavin’s hands were already firmly gripping her ass and Drew’s were tugging and twisting in his hair.

    Please, dear God let their room be across the house from mine. If I had to listen to them all summer I would be spending a lot of time on my boat.

    I watched them all but hump each other in front of me before I sensed someone else enter the room. My eyes dragged across the open kitchen to land on a pair of deep brown ones watching the couple in front of me. My mind registered someone standing next to her but I couldn’t be bothered to look. All I saw was long, brown hair thrown back in a messy ponytail, stray tendrils dusting her cheekbones and curling around her neck. Her full lips were curved in a frown as she watched the couple making out in the middle of the room.

    I grinned because I knew already this summer was going to be interesting to say the least.

    Not only would I have to contend with the Gavin-Drew fuck fest that was sure to commence as of today, but I’d be living under the same roof as this beautiful creature all summer. Somehow it had escaped me that the girl who owned the beach house was a knockout. No wonder Gavin had given me the rundown on steering clear of her before we arrived. No man in his fucking mind could stay away from this girl.

    Fuck him.

    Fuck me.

    Why had he said she was hands off this summer?

    I could see right now this girl was anything but average. I knew with one glance she wasn’t the type that wore her dresses a few inches too short and fuck-me heels that begged to be wrapped around my neck.

     There was something about her. Something that said she was…more. More everything. She had more depth. More sensuality. An unassuming beauty. She was stunning and she didn’t even know it.

“I’m Georgia,” she introduced herself with a handshake.

     The grin grew wide on my face. I offered her my name and then addressed the couple dry humping beside me. We exchanged a few words and then she laughed, the tone low, an amused smile lifting her lips. The beautiful lips that I wanted to run the pad of my thumb along right before I pressed mine to hers. Fuck she was beautiful and I was getting hard just thinking of all the things we could do together without our clothes on.

storm-lightning_00262963

They say when you take revenge against another you lose a part of your innocence.
But I’m not innocent.
I haven’t been for a very long time.
My innocence was stolen from me. Taken was the life I was supposed to have. The soul I was born with. The ruby heart embedded in a life full of hopes and dreams.

Gone.
Vanished.

I never even had a choice.
I mourn that life. Mourn the what-ifs.
Until now.
I’m ready to take back what was always meant to be mine.

But every plan has a fatal flaw. Sometimes it’s the heart.

Mind Benders/Psycho Thrilling Twists!

Absolutely left my heart shattered! Thrilling, intense, a super duper psychotic villainess with all the sexy steamy times you would need to heat up the darkest corners of purgatory. Each and everyone of these characters are portrayed and so well written, you KNOW them, and you feel them!

Tormented Dark Heros and Heroines!

Revenge, vengeance, retribution, and retaliation are just some of the things you will find right here in this fascinating mind frack of a highly enriching journey. It’s a super dark and twisted tale of what happens when foster children are entrusted in the system of the damned, forgotten, abused and nobody cares!

Thank you E.K. Blair for opening our minds, hearts, ears and eyes to this travesty!
