Selene Cavalier spent the majority of her time behind her
cello. Her dull life was made up of dark notes, hard work and sheet music.
Bennett Monterosso did what he had to do to get his family’s
winery up and running. He didn’t have time for his old ways. His quiet
dominance had been silenced. His need was just waiting below the surface, until
Having her—it was all he could think about as he watched the
young woman behind the cello.
Gage Calibri left his best friend, his home and his
tarnished past five years ago. He suppressed his darker tastes, his physical
appetites, and his secrets until he no longer had a choice.
It only took one night for these three lives to collide and
to be altered forever.
This wasn’t what they were expecting. This wasn’t who she
was. Each moment they sank deeper, each minute they felt more, each second they
took her further.
Unhinged… restrained… this obsession… this love… it was all

Save My Soul by Rivvrs
Never trust yourself…
in a man’s bed. That moment when everything is falling out from under you, it’s
like pure fluid sound. The ache abates, your heart hammers, your voice shakes,
and becomes something treacherous. It belies who you were before he made you
feel something greater than God. It’s as if the heat of your body will never
cool without his hands. Don’t believe his whispered words, the chill along your
skin a blue lit fired flame. Don’t allow yourself to make him any promises;
don’t let yourself begin to think everything will always be this good.
It’s a ruse.
You’re just his last
Lust is a liar… and
love takes victims.
The light was dim,
the soft, quiet sound of music sifting through the room. The familiar
smell of cedar wood and sage made the fiction easier to swallow, made
everything seem just as it should be as I moved through the apartment.
The muggy copper
scent of horror hit me just as I walked past the kitchen.
His tone was flat…
stark… no man should ever look so broken.
My tear filled eyes
on the gun, I reached into the empty space between us. “Don’t.”

demeaning thing said about you as a writer?

Beneath the Vine was
in Three POVs. It was hard keeping that timeline and structure I had in my
Did you learn
anything from writing your book and what was it?
That I was able to
get through such an emotional roll-coaster. This book about ruined me.

your novel that you want readers to grasp?
You can’t always get
what you want, and love is always more important than how many orgasm a guy

I like to pretend I’m
Elizabeth Bennett on most occasions.
