Blurb

It was supposed to be nothing more than a

fantasy.

All right, so I’ll admit that maybe steamy, impulsive

sex isn’t the ideal way to cope with a total stranger wandering into your beach

house unannounced. But discovering that my anonymous lover is none other than

Shane-the-Pain Becker, the dirtbag spawned only to torment me throughout

adolescence…well, somebody kill me now.

To add insult to injury, there’s a major hurricane

bearing down on us and we’re stuck together for the duration. I don’t know which

force of nature scares me the most – Hurricane Elliott or Shane.

***

Never in my wildest dreams would I have

envisioned a scenario where Melanie Lane would be wrapping her sweet legs

around me. Scratch that – there were, in fact, an abundance of wild dreams where

Felony Melanie was concerned. I just never thought I had a chance in hell of making

them reality. I mean, the girl thinks I’m sewer scum and always has.

Even now. She still believes I’m not good enough for

her. I’m assuming that’s why she seems bound and determined to shut me

out.

She keeps insisting this is just sex.

But as long as the hurricane keeps her trapped in

my arms, I will make it my mission to convince her otherwise.

Excerpt

Forcing my attention back to the manuscript, I am

just drafting one of the pivotal scenes in the story when Shane comes strolling in.

Guess it was stupid of me to expect any privacy. He stands quietly behind me and I

can sense that he’s reading what I’ve typed so far, but I am determined not to pay

him any attention.

That is, until I hear him snort a laugh.

Irritated, I turn my head to glare at him. “Something

funny?”

“Come on, Felony. You can do better than

that.”

“I thought we agreed to retire that name. And what

are you talking about?”

He points to the screen. “Is this supposed to be

realistic? I could drown in the bottomless depths of your eyes…give me

a break. What guy has said that to you, ever?”

I narrow my eyes. Am I really supposed to accept

literary criticism from him? The guy who once put a stink bomb vial in my

backpack?

“It isn’t believable,” he explains, leaning across the

desk on his arms. His face is unnervingly close to mine.

“What makes you say that?”

“Let’s look at this logically. Judging from what I’ve

read, it appears your two characters are in the throes of passion. Sex is already

imminent. They’re about to get hot and heavy. Am I correct so far?”

“Yes…”

“All right. Well, first of all, at this point the guy

would no longer be thinking rationally and intellectually. By now he’s already

deferred complete authority to his other head, if you get my drift. The last thing he’s

going to be doing is reciting poetry. It would be like trying to solve calculus

equations while masturbating.”

I blink, surprised. Holy cow, did he just use the word

masturbate?

“Second of all, men are very forward and direct to

begin with. Trust me, we are not the complex creatures you think we are. If you

come across one who’s spouting off verbosity like that, you should probably run the

other way.”

“Verbosity?” I can’t help but smile. There’s another

word I never would have pictured the Pain using.

“You’re trying too hard with this. Cut out the

ostentatious prose. Keep it simple.”

“But simple is boring,” I argue.

“Is it?” Running an index finger along his bottom lip

thoughtfully, he says in a low, impassive voice, “Melanie, I’d love nothing more than

to bury my cock in your sweet little pussy right now.”

WHAT?!

Fuck me sideways, did he actually just say that to

me? I’m not sure but I think lightning may have struck my panties. The electric

current flowing down to the most intimate part of me is almost painful. My startled

heart flutters wildly before picking up the beat in double-time. I stare into his smoky

eyes, completely and utterly speechless.

“Tell me. What sort of reaction did those words

elicit from you?”

“Uh…” Oh my God, I’ve forgotten how to words. I

mean talk! Gah!

“That’s what I thought.” The faintest hint of a smile

tugs at the corners of his mouth. “See? Simplicity.”

Struggling to regain my composure, I turn my

attention back to the monitor in front of me. “So that’s what he should say? I don’t

know. It seems so…base.”

“Sex is base. If you try to make it anything other

than that, it won’t sound natural.”

I contemplate this. While what he says may be true,

I’m not sure it fits here. I’m not writing erotica, after all. It’s just a love scene in a

romantic suspense novel. “I think something like that might be a bit too

graphic.”

“You can always go a shade more subtle with it.

Take the crudeness down a notch.”

He’s still watching me intently and I resist the urge

to squirm in my seat. This is quite a riveting conversation. I should let well enough

alone, but of course I don’t. I’m rather enjoying this. “What do you suggest?”

“Hmm…” The errant finger trails languidly across his

bottom lip again and my eyes follow it in fascination. “He would probably start by

telling her what he wants to do to her.”

“And what does he want to do to her?”

“It’s your story, Miss Lane. What do you suppose he

wants to do to her?”

“That’s a very good question.” I watch the

movement of his finger hypnotically. “The problem is, I’m not sure.”

“I would imagine that the first thing he wants to do

is strip her down to nothing. He wants to hold that beautiful body close to his. Feel

her soft breasts against his skin. Let her touch him, so she knows the extent of his

arousal.”

Dear Lord, it’s getting hot in here. “And

then?”

“This is only speculation, you understand. But I

would also imagine that he is aching to spread her thighs and slide his fingers inside,

to find out if she’s as wet and ready as he believes her to be. Now we get the female

character’s point of view. Is she wet, Melanie? Is she ready to be taken?”

“I imagine she must be,” I rasp. “Yes.”

“But this action distracts him from his ultimate goal,

of course.”

My face might be flushed, but my hands feel ice cold

when I clench them in my lap. “How so?”

“Now he knows he has to taste her.” The dark eyes

become cloudy as he slides across the desk, so close I can feel his breath on my

cheek. “He can’t prevent himself from teasing her with his tongue. Just enough to

bring her close to the brink, so he can feel her thighs clenching and quivering against

his shoulders. He needs for her to lose control. To forget every name in the world

but his. He wants to hear her pleading for him to take her, fuck her, hard and fast

and now. Now.” That last word is whispered.

I wet my lips nervously. “And does he?”

“Oh, yes.” His smile is slow and deliberate. “He most

certainly does.”

About the Author

Allison Goodson

I was born in a charming but microscopic town in

Alabama with a book in each hand. Well, maybe not literally, but you get the idea. I

don’t think there’s an author out there who didn’t start out as an avid reader, and

I’m no exception.

It was only fairly recently that I decided to resurrect

an old high school interest and once again began writing. There’s something

cathartic about breathing life into the quirky characters struggling to escape my

imagination.

These days I reside in the beautiful panhandle of

Florida with my own blue-eyed Prince Charming and three fat, pampered cats who

are just tolerant enough to permit us to share the same house with them. As long as

they’re fed on time, that is.

Predictable. Boring. Safe.

Lost Prelude  Cover

 

Blurb

My name is Maya, and I’m not the same girl I was a month ago.

There is an emptiness I carry around in my chest now. A broken heart caused by grief.
There are also dark nights where I have trouble breathing as I feel the heavy weight of loss rushing through my veins, painful moments where I can remember my entire being scream in agony as I held onto my father’s cold, lifeless hand.

Then there is always a hero to every story, isn’t there? A hero who I despised from the moment he opened his mouth.

His name is Alexander. He is my inevitable I never expected to find. The one my broken heart leads me to. His existence, his touch, everything he did to make my pain bearable will leave a mark on me forever.

Yet, I know that when I’m gone, he’ll only remember me as a fading memory.

Lost Prelude T2

 

Excerpt

My hands trembling on his hard chest, I opened my mouth, and the words just tumbled out before I could stop myself.
“Maybe at another time this could’ve turned into something.”
“I believe it’s already something, Maya.”
“Yeah…”
He was right. It was already something. But it wasn’t something that would be enough. Not for me. Not when he had someone else in his heart. Not when I couldn’t be the one he needed, wanted. Craved even.
“Maybe it could have been something more, then.”
“Yes. Maybe,” he murmured and brushed a gentle kiss on both of my closed eyelids. The act was so tender that it hurt my heart, and I was forced to close my eyes again. Tighter this time.
Tomorrow, I’ll get over you, Alexander Ross. As soon as I’m on that plane, I’ll get over you,” I said breathlessly.
His hands froze on my thighs, and I opened my eyes. He couldn’t even meet my gaze.
“What else would you like to do tonight?” he asked instead.
I forced a smile on my lips. We had reached the end of my dream.
“I think I’m done for the night. I have to get up early tomorrow.” I got up from his lap—ignoring the hands that were trying to hold me down.
The frown I came to love so much appeared on his face again.
I was going to miss everything about this man.

About the Author

Ella Maise

I’m an avid reader. Therefore, a big dreamer. I love nothing more than to escape real life to find those very few magical moments in a book. I love how it has the power of stealing your worries away, putting a smile on your face, and of course sometimes making you crush on fictional characters. I can’t even begin to describe how exciting it is to give life to new characters and fall for them. It’s definitely a different kind of addiction.

I’m still searching for my own happy ending. Until that happens, I’ll live vicariously through my own characters.

Excerpt

A knock on my door startled me out of my thoughts, and I hesitated.

Hearing another insistent knock just a few seconds later, I made sure my towel was secure around my body and went to answer the door.

As I peeked out from the small opening, I saw Alexander standing just a few inches away from me. Our eyes met, and my pulse quickened. As I was still dripping wet, the cold air coming from the hallway caused me to shiver. His eyes broke away from mine, taking in my body from head to toe.

I tried to cover my half-naked body behind the door, but it was pointless.

“What do you want?” I asked, annoyed that he was doing the silent thing and just staring.

I heard the elevators ping open down the hallway, and his attention shifted from me for a second.

Being done with the scrutinizing look he was giving me, I started to close the door on his face, but his hand stopped me from pushing it all the way. With his next forward move, I had to let go of the door and take a step back as he strode into my room.

Into me.

“What the hell—”

His hand shot out, and he gently grabbed me at the back of my neck and pulled my body toward him as his lips made contact with mine. He took another step into me, and I found my body plastered to his. Putting both of my hands on his chest, I tried to push him off, but he urged my lips apart with his, and his tongue sneaked into my mouth, forcing me to respond to his kiss. Because when he looked like he did, how could you not?

As my body slackened against him, his sudden kiss turned into something different, something more and unexpected. It was hard, yet still gentle and slow—something I wouldn’t expect from a jerk like him. He looked more like someone who would take what he wanted the way he wanted it. Not like that would have been a hardship, but still.

He splayed his warm hand at the small of my back and slowly pulled my lower body into his. I grabbed the lapels of his suit, pulling him down to me, leaning into the kiss as I melted around his body.

“What was that?” he whispered against my wet lips.

“What?” I muttered, dazed.

Before I could realize what I had done with whom, he groaned and gently pushed me back against the open door, his hand still protecting the back of my head. Caressing my lips with his tongue, he claimed my mouth in another drawn-out kiss.

A mind-numbing kiss.

A kiss that made me lose my judgment.

A throat cleared behind him, next to him, somewhere—and the moment was lost.

My Playlist For Certain Scenes in Lost Prelude

There is one song in Lost Prelude that plays a heavy role in the book, which I will mention just in a sec, but there are also other songs I listened to as I was writing it. And somehow the music just fits into the story. Even if the words don’t exactly match with it, the feeling I get is simply perfect for certain scenes. And I wanted to shared them with you so if you decide to give Lost Prelude a chance, maybe you’ll add to the experience with these songs.

* Maurice Ravel – Pavane pour une infante défunte (Piano Solo)

This piece is seriously breathtaking, and it plays a huge role in the story. While I can’t pinpoint a specific scene for this one, I do mention it in the story. At least whenever Maya is listening to it. All I can say is, it is a special one for her father. If you’ve never listened to it, you are missing out.

* Until The Ribbon Breaks – One Way Or Another

I LOVE this song. I loved it before I even wrote Lost Prelude, and I definitely LOVE how it is the perfect song for the end scene. I’m sure if you read it, you’ll agree with me. It’s an awesome cover for the classic One Way Or Another. Everytime I listen to it I get goosebumps.

* Snowhill – Be My Baby

Did you hear this version? I know I keep saying the same thing over and over, but this one is beautiful too. And this one works great for the scene where Maya is with Alexander in his penthouse. And it’s from Alexander to Maya … I adore every word in this song.

* Sam Smith – Not in That Way

Okay, I have to admit that this one isn’t specifically for a scene, but it is an awesome song. And it kind of gives you an insight of how Maya is feeling.

Sexy dude
Six Years - cover
Title: Six Years
Author: Stephanie Witter
Category/Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Standalone novel
Cover Designer: Jo Raven
Release Date: June 9th
Blurb:
They hadn’t seen each other in six years. 
She’d always had a crush on him. 
He’d only ever seen her like a little sister. 
And now…he’s back.
Brooklyn
I thought that he was a part of a distant past. I thought I didn’t feel anything for him now, but I was not so sure anymore. Having him back in my life, for however long it was, was making me see things differently. So many things had changed in the last six years and somehow I’d lost myself and forgotten all about my dreams.
My home life was still a mess, my personal life was nothing to boast about and when I see how successful he is, how everything he’d always wanted came true, I couldn’t help but feel lacking in a lot of ways. But he’s back and he needed me. I knew I was the only one who understood that part of his life, the only one he’s willing to share it with. My heart is still beating too hard and too fast for him and this time around, I was as much an adult as he was.
Having a six year age gap didn’t mean shit.
Nolan
Being back in Riverdale was harder than I thought. I’d turned my back on that life, but there had always been that one girl in my head. Little B. Now she’s nothing like the twelve year old girl I’d last seen. She’s a young woman, gorgeous and sexy. I couldn’t stay away. There’s something drawing me to her and it goes beyond my need to reconnect with her, to have her back in my life and fill the hollow part of my chest. But I couldn’t forget the little girl she had been; I shouldn’t forget the little girl she used to be.
Growing up with a junkie mother and nobody else, my neighbor, Brooklyn, had been my only happy place. I had taken care of her, and when I had left, I had to leave behind a huge part of me. I couldn’t do it again. I needed her. Once again, she’s the only person I want in my life, but I wasn’t sure if it was for all the right reasons.
Were there too many obstacles in the way?
