An invitation that goes horribly awry.

Now that Seren Flanagan has graduated from college and returned to Creekview, Tennessee, she’s getting reacquainted with her old high school friends, including Cade Mayfield. She had a crush on him in high school but lacked the courage to act on it.

Luckily, she’s not the same shy girl who used to admire him from afar. Knowing what she wants, she sets a plan in motion to capture his attention by inviting him on a trip to Ireland.

But things don’t always go as planned—a lesson that Seren will soon learn the hard way.

~ Excerpt from a scene in an Irish pub ~

“It looks like we order at the bar. What do you want?”

She wiggled out of her jacket, shrugging her shoulders in the process. “Surprise me.”

I took her coat and laid it in the empty booth seat across from us, and then, I removed mine, too. After ordering, I grabbed our drinks and slid in beside Flanagan, knowing that I should’ve sat on the opposite side but unable to help myself. “I ordered you a nut brown ale, and I got a stout,” I said, setting our glasses down. “No fruity drinks. I think you’ve already met your quota for Pear Martinis this year. These were brewed locally.”

“Forcing me to step out of my comfort zone?” she asked, raising her eyebrows.

“Yep.” I cupped my palm around the glass of stout. “I also ordered us a couple of steaks. The meat’s delivered from a local farm daily. How’s that for fresh?”

“A steak sounds so good right now,” she said, fluttering her eyes closed like she was already imagining the taste. She glanced at my glass. “Let me try yours.”

I put my arm around the back of the booth, just behind her shoulders, and pushed the glass in her direction.

She took a tiny sip and wrinkled her nose. “That’s really strong.”

“Come on, Flanagan,” I goaded. “You didn’t even get enough to taste. Drink up.”

She took a bigger swig, daintily wiping her mouth with her napkin when she was done. “Whew!” She shook her head rapidly as if the taste lingered. “That’s still really strong.”

I chuckled, lifting the glass to my lips and taking a long drink. The taste was much different than my usual beer, and while I didn’t like it quite as well, I decided to reserve my judgment for when I finished.

“Try yours,” I suggested, nodding toward her glass. She took a small sip. Then, seeming satisfied with that, she took a longer drink. “Much better.” She held the glass to me. “Here, you try it.”

There was something magical about being in an entirely different country, surrounded by total strangers in an unfamiliar setting. It could almost make me feel like I was someone else entirely, like all the shit that had happened in my life didn’t apply here, like for a little while I could escape my own reality, my own shortcomings.

I knew I shouldn’t unless I was prepared for all the consequences. Once I crossed the line, there was no going back.

But damn she was sexy.

And I’d been thinking about it ever since she sat down beside me in the bar a few months ago when she’d returned to Creekview for good.

I tried to think about all the ways this could go wrong. And if I screwed things up, I could lose our friendship, something I cherished. Maybe the best thing that I could do for Flanagan right now was to leave her alone.

But I was selfish.

And I wanted her.

And I didn’t have the strength to resist her, not here, not now.

“I think I will try your drink,” I said softly, accepting the glass from her and setting it back on the table without drinking from it.

She gave me a strange look, her lips parting in surprise.

My arm slid from the back of the booth to her shoulders, and I gently pulled her toward me. With my free hand, I cupped her cheek, my thumb resting near the corner of her mouth. I leaned down, pausing when I was mere inches from her face. Her eyes widened, and her chest rose as if she had sucked in a small breath and held it. She licked her lips, and I was aroused by her innocent gesture. I watched her. Her eyes closed, her long dark lashes fanning over her cheek. Her skin was soft and smooth as my thumb arced lightly across her face.

Damn, I couldn’t wait another second. I lowered my lips to hers, delivering the softest of kisses. Then, my tongue teased her lips, begging her to open to me, so that I could taste her, something I had deprived myself of for far too long.

The nutty flavors of the ale melded with her sweetness, a tantalizing concoction that permeated my brain with pleasure. Her hand squeezed my thigh, bringing me the satisfaction of knowing that she was enjoying our kiss every bit as much as I. When I deepened the kiss, a soft moan emanated from her throat, and her hand slid higher, gripping more tightly as if she needed something to hold on to. The effect had my entire body standing at full attention. How the hell had I stayed away from her this long?

Forcing my thoughts away from fears that had become my own personal barrier, I concentrated only on her. Reluctantly ending the kiss, I pulled away slightly and found her deep sapphire eyes focused on me.

“That’s the best damn ale I ever tasted,” I said softly, well aware that her hand still rested on my thigh.

“You didn’t even get enough to taste,” she whispered, mimicking me. “Drink up.”

About Gibson’s Legacy

Gibson Barclay has been famous for almost seven years and he’s only twenty four.

Seldom does anyone pick up a magazine, newspaper or watch a television entertainment show, without seeing his image or reading about his promiscuous antics. He had no need to court publicity with his magnetic charm and charismatic ways; when he chooses to cooperate that is. Shrugging off the advice of publicists and image consultants, Gibson makes no excuses for who he is, and with no ties, he answers to no one about how he chooses to live his life.

From teenage musician to twenties mega rock star, Gibson has seen and done it all. Women fantasize about him and men envy his rock scene, womanizing lifestyle. Only one person ever made Gibson feel uncomfortable about the way he lived his life. No one ever said no to him that he can remember, although there was two minute events that he has never been able to shake from his mind. Both of those events involved the way Chloe Jenner looked at him. It was something and nothing, but
for him, the impact haunted him. In the strangest twist of fate, something so wildly obscure occurred, that set his mind ablaze with the memory of that small encounter.

Like all women, Chloe found Gibson striking and had even shared with friends, her own guilty fantasy about him. Fantasy and reality were poles apart and Chloe believed that Gibson Barclay never even knew that she existed.

*Adult Contemporary Romance – Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not suitable for readers under the age of eighteen.*

Hands invaded my body space and ran up and across my pectorals, my head dropping to see what she was doing. She glided her palms around and under my arms, until they stopped on both scapula bones on my back.
Stroking me, she smiled suggestively and continued to trail downwards toward my ass, and by the time I made eye contact with her, she was so close her hot panting breaths were fanning over my face.
Groupies had no shame. Then again, I was so fucking wired after the gig, I needed something to
bring me down, and an easy fuck meant I didn’t have to be charming or polite to anyone. This girl knew the score and she was begging for it.

ARC Review


Gibson Barclay…such a perfect name for a sexy hot rocker.

Gibson is on the rise to becoming the next big Rockstar. He is a chick magnet and takes advantage of every opportunity that comes his way. One girl catches his attention, Chloe there is just something about her that draws him in.

Chloe Jenner is sweet and has very limited experience when it comes to the men. She is in a serious relationship but can’t stop the feelings that flood her brain and body when she is in close proximity with Gibson.

Years later…you will have to read to find out. I hate spoilers so I’m not going to write any. I will say I fell for Gibson early, his manwhorish ways did not stop me at all from wanting more of him.(I think that just added to his appeal) I just had this feeling that there was more to him than meets the eye and I wanted to know every detail. My feelings about Chloe shifted quite a bit from pity to utter frustration then onto happiness. She was very fickle but I understood why.

The book is told in dual POVs and I loved both sides of this story. I must admit I loved being inside Gibson’s head a little bit more and it just made me fall even harder for him. There is plenty of steaminess in the read as well, not too much but just the right amount. There is a cliffhanger but it leaves off at a good stopping point but you will still be wanting the next one ASAP! Overall fantastic read as I thought it would be. If you haven’t read any of K.L. Shandwick’s books then your totally missing out.

Part I



What is love?

I dont know.

Ive never had it.

Is it even real?

No, I dont think so. I mean, how can I believe in love when Ive never witnessed it? When it seems to only exist in books and films, or in the lives of more fortunate people than me? Trust me, I know.

Love is my personal chimera.

I am gazing at brown eyes, admiring the richness of the color, the beauty of the man to whom they belong to.

Youre so beautiful, Blaire so wet, he murmurs, his hand going between my legs as he begins to rub me. His fingers spread me open to their soft invasion, tuning my body to his wants and needs, preparing me to be taken as the hot friction of his touch lights a wild fire within my body. Its not the first time he has touched me like this, but each time feels better and betterthe sensations all-consuming and heady.

One finger.

Two fingers.

One finger.

Two fingers.

Over and over again.

His invasion is fast and slow, deep and shallow. His touch is soiled heaven.

As I open my legs wider for him, I wonder if it feels this good because of him or because Im taking something that doesnt belong to me and making it mine.

Oh God I love you, Blaire. I love you I love you …” he pants in my ear.

Dont stop it feels so good, I breathe.

Okay, maybe its because at this moment in time this man thinks he loves me and no one else but me, however false his proclamation may be.

I close my eyes as his lips land on mine. He kisses me softly as if Im made out of gold, kissing me with that familiar mouth Ive seen smile tenderly at me so many times before. The assault of his tongue debilitates me but doesnt incapacitate me.

Its four dollars, gorgeous, the cute barista says, smiling at me.

Im about to pay for my cappuccino when I hear a deep, manly voice say, Let me get that for you.

A man wearing a beige suit comes forward, standing next to me as he hands the barista some bills. Ive seen you around youre Paiges friend.

I smile, licking my suddenly dry lips. Thank you, and yes I know Paige.

The smile on his handsome face seems to freeze as his gaze follows the tip of my tongue, the spark of hunger brightening his eyes. Inwardly, I smile because who knew it was so easy to make men desire me, particularly when I went without attention for so long.

My pleasure. Are you, he coughs, here with someone else?

I shake my head and look at him through fluttering eyelashes. No, Im here all by myself. I pause, touching his arm invitingly, and smile. Would you like to join me?

He looks around the coffee shop, probably considering if he should, if its proper to do so, but less than five seconds later, hes staring at me once again. Sure.

Yes, just like that.

The beige walls are spinning.

The clock is ticking.

The bedsprings creak as the moon cries outside the motel window.

And the man above me kisses me while he fingers me, preparing me for him. Gotta love such a thoughtful man.

I can taste his sweet saliva mixing with mine, and I love it.

Please, I beg against his lips, reaching for his hard cock and wrapping my fingers around it. Im ready.

I feel his mouth leave mine as he begins to make his way down my partially dressed body. Are you sure, Blaire? Are you sure you want to do this with me?

I open my eyes to witness what I think I want him to do. No, what Im sure I want him to do. I cant help the smile I feel playing on my lips as I see him struggling with his conscience. He asks me if Im sure when he has already fucked my mouth with his cock countless number of times, when his fingers have filled every orifice of my body. Should I laugh? No I decide to take pity instead.

Im sure, so sure, I say, letting my arms land like dead weight on the bed, the cheap fabric rough against my skin.

All right.

When I feel the bed dip between my legs, I instinctively open them for him and watch as he brings a condom package to his mouth. As he rips it open with his teeth, I admire his perfect full lips that emphasize how masculine he is.

I feel pleased with myself.

So fucking pleased because he wants me.

Mr. Callahan wants me. Me. Can you believe it? Chubby Blaire. Ugly and awkward Blaire.

Unlovable Blaire.

I guess Im not that ugly anymore. My body? What was considered fat as a child is now called boobs and ass. Guys want it. They want me. They want to touch me, grope me, feel me they want to screw me. And it feels good to be wanted so good. It makes me feel powerful, and like a potent drug spreading inside your bloodstream, I want more.

I need more.

Hurry up, I say, not bothering to be shy or coy about it. I mean, he brought me here to have sex, right?

Fuck, give me a second, Blaire. Trying to get the damn condom on my dick.

As he rolls the rubber on his stiff dick, his eyes wonder over my bare chest, my face, my spread legs. Shaking his head as if trying to clear his mind, he mutters, Youre so beautiful. I want you so much.

Thats not the first time I have heard those words come out of a mans mouth. Josh tells me all the time how beautiful I am, how perfect I am, how much he wants me, how much he loves me. But hes my friend with benefits. The words kind of lose their meaning when its the same person saying them to you over and over again.

Show me.

Those two words are all it takes for him to spread my legs wider with his hands and finally enter me with his throbbing dick. Pain shoots through my body, and a groan escapes my mouth when he covers my body with his. I feel his whole length inside me in one deep thrust.

Christ, youre so tight.

He lifts both my legs, wrapping them around his lean waist and starts to thrust. Hard. It hurts. But I like the pain. It sobers me.

And thats when reality comes crashing down on me. It hits me with the speed and blinding power of a torpedo, making me realize what Im doing. What Im giving away and the man doesnt even know it.

What the hell am I doing?

Proving that you are your mothers daughter.

Making her proud.

The room is filled with the noises of the man grunting his pleasure and the wet slapping of our skin; it makes me want to gag. I want to throw up. Maybe its the alcohol I drank.

Maybe its self-disgust.

The initial pain is gone and now I just feel sore. And strange.

His beautiful face lowers, his lips about to connect with mine, and I feel the bile rise inside my throat. I turn my face to the side, his kiss landing on my cheek. My eyes watch the way the lights in the bathroom illuminate all its used and dirty ugliness.

Oh God, Im going to come Im going to come Im going to come, he continues to pant in my ear, pumping in and out of my body. Before I know whats happening, he half-screams and half groans, his body going tense on top of mine.

And just like that its over. In less than five minutes Ive managed to kill a part of me.

Our breathing evens and he pulls out, moving to stand up. I push myself up on my elbows to see him inspect his condom. It still glistens. By the time he lifts his eyes, connecting with mine, Ive already wrapped my body with the duvet cover.

Confusion, shock, and pleasure reflect in those brown eyes. I-I didnt know I …” His hands go to his hair as we stare at each other. I didnt know you were a virgin.

I shrug my shoulder carelessly, causing the duvet to slide down, exposing my bare breasts to him. His eyes immediately flare with lust. It doesnt matter I wanted it to be you.

And thats the truth.


But nothing. If it bothers you, then forget it happened. I already did, I say, ending the conversation.

This is my body. I will have the last word. Not him. Not anyone. This is my life. This is my decision.

Without giving myself a chance to doubt my next words, I turn to look at him in all his naked beauty, the gold wedding ring on his finger catching my attention. Dont worry, Mr. Callahan I wont tell your daughter that you fucked her classmate.

And with that, I seal my destiny.

RELEASE DAY BLITZ: dissonance. by Sarah Buhl

Title: dissonance. (Böhme, #2)
Author: Sarah Buhl 
GENRE: Literary Fiction, Contemporary Romance, New Adult
Release Date: November 11th, 2014 
dissonance. (Böhme, #2)
We cling to what we have always known. Lives, histories, beliefs—all make each of us who we are. Our beliefs define us. But what if one clung to something so tightly they failed to see the
truth around them? What if letting go of those beliefs meant truly loving and finding what it means to be alive?


Blake Lawson has a hero complex. He also believes he failed at it. His friend lived a life of turmoil and he was unable to shield him from it. Blake is a friend to everyone, but only giving just enough—because he hasn’t met someone worth risking failure for.
Brecken McNett does not believe in happily ever after. She has lived her life depending only on herself, because she is the only person that knows what she needs. She doesn’t put up with screw ups. Brecken has seen too much failure and broken promises to believe in anything other than living fully day by day. Happily ever afters aren’t possible.
“Well I for one am sick of hearing only talk and want to see more action,” Brecken said, evading her nervousness as if it were hunting her. Everyone laughed as she squinted her eyes at me in challenge and pointed at my chest.
“Before I do, I want to show you something,” I said. I pushed myself from the wall and stepped closer to her. I invaded her personal space and looked down my nose to her, meeting her eyes as she peeked up at me under her long-ass lashes.
“What are you going to show me, Blake?” she asked with a flirtatious grin. She didn’t realize the impact that one grin had on me, but she was going to find out.
“Excuse us, everyone,” I said with a nod to them. Wynn gave me a smile and nod in return. He tapped the side of his temple and pointed at me before he turned to give his full attention to Hannah.
He always gave me that gesture when he wanted to let me know he understood me.
I took Brecken’s hand and led her through the crowd and toward the hidden door off the room that housed the artists’ photographic portraits. Wynn had taken each of the photos and they really were exceptional. He was an amazing photographer and I know I’m partial to saying that since he’s my best friend. But the portraits weren’t why I came here.
On the other side of this room was the door leading to the darkroom and the rooftop. I opened the door and flipped on the red light for developing film. I pulled her in behind me and shut the door and backed her into it.
I didn’t speak a word to her, but lifted my hand and barely traced the hair that she wore tucked behind her ear. It was the ear that her tattoo hid behind and I leaned in to let my nose trace across it. I needed to be that near her again. The one time earlier wasn’t enough.
When she leaned against the wall in front of me earlier, I thought I was going to make a scene. She smelled amazing and it was as if she radiated this heat from her that pulled me in. I wanted to touch her.
She put her hands atop my chest to stop me from leaning in and with a throaty laugh she looked up at me. “You wanted to show me a darkroom?” I nodded.
“Is this your way of prolonging the inevitable? You’re going to sing Blake, no way around it.” She pulled her lip in again in the nervous way she had the entire night. The conversations with others, her hesitation at my closeness, her leaning toward me with a shy lowering of her chin as she spoke—signs that she wanted this as much as me but she was nervous. And I couldn’t forget her choosing the same song to sing that I sent to her earlier. Well, that I sent to her via Karl. I’m still claiming it as mine. What he intended as a mockery of me, became the highlight of my month, if not my year.
“What will I get in return for singing?” I whispered into her ear, before placing a light kiss over her elephant tattoo once again.
“You will get the privilege of singing for those fine people,” she smiled and tilted her head back against the door. She pushed onto her tiptoes and wrapped her arms around my neck. My eyes closed briefly by reflex and I had the same anticipation as I did when I was eleven waiting to see those dancing women on the TV. A simple hug was the first step she was taking into me and I felt the longing between us—not only physically but in the air. It was palpable. Just being near her made me feel whole.
My heart was racing. My heart was racing? My heart never raced—especially not from a hug. I never had this eagerness or this anticipation. This uncontained need to put my arms around a woman and just hold her.
Just hold her. That was what I wanted from her. I wanted to kiss her, and I wanted to hold her. I didn’t want to have sex with her… yet. Oh fuck, do I want to cuddle? That’s insane.
Brecken lowered her hands to my biceps, and as she tightened her grip her eyes fluttered closed and that alone made me drop all inhibition and restraint. I grabbed her waist and pulled her from the door and looked at her as if she were going to disappear in front of me. I traced my hand across her face and her eyes opened and our attention was only on each other.
Her lips parted and an airy moan left her as if just my touch was causing every part of her to ache.
That moan—that amazing, sexy fucking moan. I closed my eyes, controlling myself from going any farther than just holding her and touching her.
I traced my hand across her back and stopped right above her ass. I wanted to touch it from the moment I first saw it tonight, wrapped nicely in her dress. The more she walked in front of me, the more she walked away from me, the stronger the need became and now I was so close to finally experiencing first hand just how amazing it was—but I stopped.
I didn’t want to stop. But I needed to stop.
I pulled her to me and I wish I could say the motion was only for her, but I’m a guy and it was amazing just to press myself against her. I let her feel the need she caused in me and a light gasp escaped her. My cheek pressed to the top of her head and I traced my hands along her arms, and then I lifted them above her head, pressing her into the door. I leaned down to trace my nose along her ear, and remained still as our breath mixed between us.
We stood there as our breathing increased, both afraid to move further. I wanted to thank the universe for being fucking awesome and allowing me this one moment of freedom with her. Every inch of her that my body touched was flying. “Damn it,” I said in a whisper.
She let go of me and my need to be near her was reflected in her expression. We stood there, staring at each other in silence. Her brow furrowed, and she tilted her head. I noticed it was the same fearful expression she wore when waiting to join Conall on stage and it made me nervous.
Her breaths increased as her chest rose and fell. I watched her breathing and my eyes drifted to her spiral tattoo once more.
“I like you,” she said with a look of confusion on her face as if she couldn’t understand her own thoughts and emotions.

                            penance. (Böhme #1)

Demons of past mistakes haunt her. Mistakes of past demons haunt him. 
Strangers cross paths every day. Moments are shared with a smile — the opening of a door, a nod of hello, or help with directions. Most don’t listen to that quiet intuition telling them that something different can be found in this stranger. There is connection and understanding in their eyes. There is truth in their smile. There is an entire life waiting to live. What happens if that intuition isn’t ignored and strangers begin to listen? 
It happens every day, someone, somewhere, chooses to listen, and love begins. 
This is the story of two strangers who made that choice. 
Haunted by the passing of her sister and believing she was the catalyst to cause it, Hannah
Anderson lives a walking death. Afraid to embrace life and burdened by guilt, she refuses to accept more than just getting through every day. She believes she doesn’t deserve happiness. 
Consumed by anxieties and self-depreciation from childhood, Wynn Hawthorne shelters himself from the world. Content to live behind his camera and within the quotes that comfort him, he avoids people. He holds himself back from experiences because people always disappoint. 
Together they learn that their pasts do not define them and that forgiveness is the hardest thing in the world to accept.

As soon as Lia opens the door to a sexy, delicious Colter Slade I was hooked. This book is about a girl who leads a boring life and a guy who wants to show her how to live life to the fullest and possibly show her what love truly is. Lia and Colt’s story isn’t always happy go lucky and they have plenty of lows but the love that they share seems to always find a way to shine through.

Delia Norman has just had her heart crushed by her boyfriend of 4 years, with no warning he just breaks it off with her. When she goes to deal with her heart break in one of her Daddy’s hotels she never expects the person banging on her door to tell her to keep the noise down to be a hot, sexy guy claiming to be a rock god. Lia is a mess, used to her boring life trying to please her Daddy and his expectations of what her life should be like. When Colter Slade gives her the opportunity of a lifetime, to live in the moment, be spontaneous she feels the excitement begin to bubble within in her and goes for it.

Colter Slade is the lead singer of the famous rock band Slade. There is something about Lia that he can’t get enough of, maybe it’s her innocence, her beauty, or maybe a little bit of both but she makes him feel things he never thought he would feel again. He has been hurt in the past and is now used to living as the typical rock god with lots of women, partying, and no commitments other than his music. Lia seems to stir something deep inside him, when he is around her he wants to be the person he used to be before that one girl ruined him.

As the tour begins Lia finds herself in a world she couldn’t possible imagine. She is confused, scared, excited, and could possibly be falling for Colt. With his chaotic lifestyle Lia is foreign to, she isn’t for sure if she is made for it. The paparazzi, evil minion fans, and one bitch that knows how to get under her skin is taking its toll on her, but Colt has a way to make it all worth it. Then there is Lia’s Daddy always pressuring her to come home, she is ruining her life he tells her. Will everything become to much for her to handle? Will her parents finally push her into coming home?

The chemistry between Colt and Lia is pretty damn HOT. You know the saying “opposites attract” well this fits Colt and Lia to a tee. As the tour moves along they are falling harder for each other, possibly love? Lia voices her feelings for Colt loud and clear but Colt seems to have issues with using certain terms to describe their relationship and how he feels. Will he finally get over his past and tell Lia how he truly feels or will it push Lia to the breaking point?

I have been a fan of K.E. Osborn ever since I read The Trust Me? Trilogy so I was really excited about this one and she did not disappoint. Colt was extremely sexy, dominant, but could come off a little possessive at times but only meant well. Lia got on my nerves a little here and there but the more I read the more she blossomed into a strong young woman and I then found her a likable character. Jessi, ugh hate her, enough said about that character. Then the ending OMG, I did not see that coming at all. Just as I had happy tears glistening in my eyes…BAM. The book takes a major freaking turn which shocked the plum hell out of me. So now I’m impatiently waiting for book two, I NEED it like NOW please. If you love hot rocker reads filled with drama, don’t hesitate one-click this one.

I’m smiling so brightly that my cheeks hurt and I can’t help but feel emotional as he leans in to kiss me. His kiss is full of passion and a steady stream of tears flow from my eyes down my cheeks, because of how proud, honored and loved I feel. And that’s all coming from the man I love, the man kissing me, the man I want to be with for an eternity, and in this moment I know that nothing can tear us apart.


“Then fuck me, Colt,” I say and he groans into my mouth. His hands slide on to my arse and he pulls me from the desk. He takes me over to the bed and lays me down making his way over the top of me.

“I’m definitely going to fuck you, Lia, I’m seriously going to fuck your brains out. But first I’m going to make sweet normal love to the most beautiful girl in the world

Australian author K E Osborn was born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia. Having worked in the optical industry for some time, K E Osborn decided it was time to leave the optical world behind and start on something new. With a background in graphic design and a flair for all things creative, she tried her hand at writing.
K E Osborn hid the fact that she was writing from her family, as she believed her first story was simply something she had to get on paper first and then judge if it was good enough for others to read. It wasn’t until her mother found a printed version of the manuscript that her secret came out. She was a writer, and she loved it. Writing gives her life purpose. It makes her feel, laugh, cry, and get completely enveloped with the characters and their story lines. She feels at home when writing.

Dark desires…Deadly secrets…Devious deceptions…Nothing is exactly as it seems in INSIDIOUS, the new erotic thriller from New York Times and USA Today
bestselling author ALEATHA ROMIG!

When a powerful man is willing to risk everything for his own satisfaction, only one woman can beat him at his own game: his wife. Or so she thinks…

“Let’s start with you calling me Stewart. Formalities seem unnecessary.”

Stewart Harrington is rich, gorgeous, and one of the most powerful men in Miami. He always gets what he wants. Anything is available to him for the right price.

Even me.

Being the wife of a mogul comes with all the perks, but being Mrs. Stewart Harrington comes with a few special requirements. I’ve learned to keep a part of myself locked away as my husband watches me submit to his needs. But the more he demands of me, the more beguiled he becomes and that’s to my advantage. So I keep fulfilling his fantasies and following his rules because he doesn’t know that what he’s playing is really my game. And winning is everything, right?

INSIDIOUS is a stand-alone novel and the first Tales from the Dark Side title by ALEATHA ROMIG.

He let go of the door knob and put his hands on either side of my face and pulled me into him, our lips touching, needing each other like our next heartbeat. Who was I kidding, I did need him more than my next heart beat.

He lifted me up, and I wrapped my legs around his waist and hooked my arms around his neck. He walked back to my bedroom and laid me down on the bed, ever so gently. He unlocked our lips and looked at me, sweeping my bangs out of my eyes.

“You are the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen. I’ve waited so long to have you again…to taste you again, Khlo.”

I smiled, he was going to make me cry.

“For tonight, it’s just you and me, Khlo. No one else,” he said as he crashed his lips into mine again.

I finally convinced myself that this was real…that he was real and tonight, I was his and he was mine.
