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

now.

 

BENEATH THE VINE

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

consuming.

Extract

Prologue

 

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

breath.

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.

“Selene.”

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.”

 

 

 

GET TO KNOW YOU INTERVIEW

 

 

Your books are so

emotional. How long does it take for you to be able to get the characters out

of your mind and move on to the next?

I’ve noticed with

Yes! Most if not all

the names are people in my life, or people who have impacted it =) Not always

What are the most

important attributes to remaining sane as a writer?

Oreos and caffeine

 

What is the most

demeaning thing said about you as a writer?

In a review, I had

someone personally attack me. Reviews should be constructive.

 

How do you react to a

bad review of one of your books?

If it’s constructive,

I’ll probably cry, eat large quantities of oreos and then pull up my big girl

panties and take the advice given, and hopefully be better next time =)

 

What was the hardest

part of writing your book?

Beneath the Vine was

in Three POVs. It was hard keeping that timeline and structure I had in my

head.

 

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.

 

Is there a message in

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

gives you =) Sometimes… 😉
