Ten years old I fell in love
Ten years was the price of that love
Ten years later our world’s re-collide

Alexandria (Alex)

My brother Jonah was possessive when it came to the things he owned; this unfortunately included the people in his life. The forbidden love between his best friend and me was just that… forbidden.
Our families were from different walks of life and as a sheriff’s daughter being with a Moore’s kid would never be tolerated. To my parents their son and Dalton Moore were on different paths and their friendship would end as soon as college began but it was my brother who had a craving for trouble. He was always looking for danger, committing petty crimes and getting away with it because Dalton would take the fall, blackening his already stained name. When Jonah found out we broke the rules by loving each other, his consequences impacted us all with immeasurable suffering.
Betrayal comes with a debt and it would be paid by all of us.
One with their heart,
one with their mind
and one would pay in blood.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

You can find me on Facebook where I love interacting with my readers.

Title: The Air He Breathes
Author: Romance Elements #1
Cover Design: Brittainy C. Cherry
Genre: Romance
 Release Date: September 25, 2015
Blurb
I was warned about Tristan Cole.“Stay away from him,” people said.
“He’s cruel.”
“He’s cold.”
“He’s damaged.”

It’s easy to judge a man because of his past. To look at Tristan and see a monster.

But I couldn’t do that. I had to accept the wreckage that lived inside of him because it also lived inside of me.

We were both empty.
We were both looking for something else. Something more.
We both wanted to put together the shattered pieces of our yesterdays.

Then perhaps we could finally remember how to breathe.

↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓

REVIEW

I am speechless. Right from the prologue, you are pulled into a story that stems from sadness and a vulnerable place.

“I forced my body to go numb, because if I wasn’t numb, I’d feel everything. If I felt everything, I’d fall apart, and I couldn’t fall apart.”

If you’ve read anything of Brittainy Cherry’s, then you know she has this writing style that flows beautifully through every emotion. She’ll break your heart before she starts piecing it back together. I read the last page and thought, I don’t know how I could ever write a review that would do this justice.

“If love was a moment, this would be where it existed.”

Tristan and Elizabeth have both suffered so much loss in their lives, but they each handle it completely different. Tristan shuts out the world as he barely goes through the motions of daily life. Elizabeth has no choice but to carry on, for her daughter. How do you give part of yourself to someone when you have nothing left to give? This is the story of second chances and mending broken hearts.

“You know that place in between nightmares and dreams? The place where tomorrows never come and yesterdays don’t hurt anymore? The place where your heart beats in sync with mine? The place where time doesn’t exist, and it’s easy to breathe?

I want to live there with you.”

I laughed, I cried, my soul felt empty right along with Tristan and Elizabeth. No matter how mean Tristan was, I still wanted to give him a hug. He wore his past like armor, keeping out all the good. I love that Elizabeth never gave up on him. Everyone is worthy of love. It’s at those times that you are the worst person to love, that you need it the most.

What happens when the one you want is the only one you can’t have?

My name is Sevin.

Homeschooled and sheltered by my ultra-religious family, I was always taught that lust was a sin.

Elle was the girl who’d been carefully chosen for me.

After a long-distance courtship, I’d be moving into her family’s guesthouse so that we could get to know each other in the months before the wedding.

Boundaries were set: no inappropriate touching, no kissing, no sex before marriage.

I’d accepted those rules and my fate.

Until I met the one I wanted to sin with.

That was when restraint became a problem…especially since THE ONE wasn’t Elle.

It was her sister, Evangeline.

You know what they say about best laid plans.

My name is Sevin, and I have sinned.

Told in alternating points of view, Sins of Sevin is a full-length standalone novel. Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. Only appropriate for adult readers age 18+.

Excerpt

SINS OF SEVIN EXCERPT

Copyright © 2015 by Penelope Ward

He quietly followed me into the dining room, carrying the flatware. The tension in the air was thick as he walked behind me around the oval table, setting down silverware after each plate I’d put down. It was like some weird game of musical chairs where awkward silence replaced the music. The hairs on my back stiffened. We weren’t saying anything, but it was as if I could feel the weight of a thousand words along with the heat of his body so close behind me.

When I noticed he’d just put a fork where the spoon was supposed to go, I switched it. “The forks go on this side, actually.” My hand was shaking. I couldn’t believe how little control I had over myself.

Noticing my nerves, he suddenly placed his hand over mine and whispered, “Stop.”

Chills ran through me. My heart started to beat faster. My nipples hardened. I hated my body for responding to him with equal amounts of fear and lust.

I turned to him, his hand still over my knuckles. It felt like I couldn’t breathe as he just looked at me.

My mother’s footsteps caused Sevin to move his hand off mine with lightning speed.

Mama entered, and we continued setting the table as if our stolen moment hadn’t happened.

REVIEW

Holy Friggen Cheese Doodles!!!

“You’ll always be my truth. But sometimes, the truth hurts too much.”

Sevin grew up in a strict Christian household. He was home schooled and went to church every week. In an attempt to escape his step mother, he agrees to court then marry Elle. The problem? He wants to ‘sin’ with someone else…. Elle’s sister. You think you know where this story is going? Trust me. You have no idea…

“I don’t know what I’d do without you.”
“You won’t ever have to find out.”

I finished reading Sins of Sevin and just couldn’t wrap my mind around how Penelope Ward does it. She tells a story that makes it impossible to put down… and strangely will make you crave Strawberry Pop Tarts.
This is forbidden romance at its best because, there is no right answer in who Sevin will eventually end up with. Elle freely gives her love to Sevin and loves him despite his past. Evangeline is more of a free spirit but awakens something in Sevin that no one else can.

What do you do when you find that one person who completes your soul? You want to give them that sacred part of yourself, but doing that would mean hurting that person in return (as well as everyone around you). That is ‘Sins of Sevin’. Mistakes get made. Heartache is their penance.

“Loving someone means loving them despite their faults or mistakes.”

Think you know how it all ends? Think again. Sinning has never felt so right.

Expected Release Date: October 8th, 2015
Available Formats: Print and eBook
Cover Design by T.M. Franklin
Summary
Who knew the girl who spent most of her Saturday nights watching Doctor Who marathons with her best friend would end up becoming a reality television star?
Not Emma MacLean.
Emma tried to leave the nerdy girl behind as the Vice President of Operations for billionaire venture capitalist, Terrance Hunt, on the hit show Hunt for Life.
When double tragedies occur on the same day, Emma is out of a job, but the cameras and a nation of fans continue to follow her.
Rob “Bobby” Breyer lived and breathed the professional wrestling circuit
for five years. Rob happens to be a devoted Hunt for Life fan due to a chance
meeting with Emma while in high school. When he reaches out to Emma in her time of crisis, he never imagines how much it will change his life.
After twelve years, their attraction still sizzles and this time, Rob’s not letting Emma get away. As the cameras roll, Emma’s new career and Rob’s quest for glory
are in the spotlight. When the heat is on, they’ll need all the support they can get from the Nerdy Girl Nation.

Exclusive Excerpt
“Seven AM looks good on you,” Rob
remarked when he sat down in the stylist chair next to Emma.
“Thanks,” Emma snorted. She wore a
hoodie with her favorite pair of worn jeans and a purple tee shirt with Bazinga
printed across the front. With little sleep and even less time, she threw her
hair up into a messy bun. Along with her black framed glasses, she seemed more
like a nerdy teenager than a sophisticated reality star.
“I just wanted to say sorry about the
question the other night. I really wasn’t meaning to stir anything up with Big
Bobby. Bill is a good friend and I have a lot of respect for him.” Emma gave
the entire speech while playing with her hoodie strings and avoiding eye
contact with everyone in the room.
“You know Bill?” Rob asked.
“Um, yeah.” She glanced up to see the
confusion on Rob’s face. “He owns a gym in LA. I’ve been training there for
about five years.”
“So, Harry really wasn’t kidding when he said
you have skills in the ring?”
“Bill seems to think I’m pretty good. I just
do it for me mostly. It’s hard enough going into the ring in a skirt and heels.
I don’t think I could do it in the scraps of material the Bombshells do.”
They both turned when the door opened and saw
their photographer, Gwen, approaching.
Rob leaned in close enough to whisper. “We
will talk about this later.”
“You two ready to do this?” Gwen
asked when she approached them.
Emma leaned in to check herself out in the
mirror. “Might take a couple of hours and several layers of makeup. Hope
you cleared your schedule.”
Gwen laughed along with Rob. “Don’t
worry. Angela has everything she needs to get you together. Tom is getting your
suit, Rob. Make yourselves comfortable.” Gwen patted both of their
shoulders and left to set up her equipment for the photo shoot.
“I need coffee to get comfortable,”
Emma moaned while she rubbed her temples.
“Lucky for you, I picked some up on my
way over.” Rob held out a large to go cup of coffee to her.
She turned and accepted the drink with a smile.
“Thanks.”
One sip of the warm, rich liquid calmed her
nerves.
“Ahhhh. I didn’t drink any this morning.
I could kiss you for this.”
“I wouldn’t be opposed to kissing you.
I’d kiss you even with coffee breath.”
She turned to Rob and took in his smile with
his dimpled, unshaven cheeks. Beyond him, she saw the camera lens. The early
hour and his alluring blue eyes made her forget millions of people would
eventually see their exchange.
“Not today, big boy.” She attempted
to laugh it off.
“That’s not never.” He winked at
her.
I’m so screwed.

Synopsis

I’ve dreamed of him since before I was old enough to form memories. I’m as sure of this as I am of breathing.

When I close my eyes, my mind paints a picture of his smile and shades the contours of his hands, the deep scar around his bicep.

People say that I’m an artist, yet my mind is vacant, my hands unsteady. With his presence, he has unknowingly broken that something inside of me that makes me who I am, because being around him is like standing in a rainstorm.

First the drops tickle my skin, and then they coat me, refusing to be ignored. Finally, it seems they soak into me, reaching parts of me I don’t think anyone has ever touched. I’m not certain how he’s capable of doing so—I’m not sure that he even realizes it. Sometimes I’m terrified that it’s apparent in my reactions: other times—I really hope that it is.

I’ve been waiting for this. For him.

But I never knew it would come with such a price.

Excerpt

“Ben, Brian, Benny, Brent, Bailey?”

“Isn’t Bailey a girl’s name?” I ask, my eyebrows drawing down in question though I’m tired of playing this game.

“No, I’ve known guys named Bailey. It’s one of those names.” Charleigh twists in the driver’s seat, arching her eyebrows at me knowingly. I catch her glasses sliding down the bridge of her nose and her hand brushing blonde hair from her face before I turn to watch the road.

“One of those names?” My voice is surprisingly even as we dangerously near the median.

“Yes. One of those names. You know, where a boy or a girl could have it. Like Charleigh.”

“It wasn’t Bailey. I would have remembered that name for sure.”

“You were pissed! You can’t even recall how you got home!”

“Drunk,” I reply automatically. “I was drunk.”

“Drunk, pissed, same difference.”

“Only you Brits think pissed means drunk. Here in America, we all think it means angry. We’ve gone over this.”

“Yeah, yeah, stop changing the subject. Brandon, Brad, Bobby, Benedict?”

“Benedict?” I ask, my neck snaps to face her.

“Yes, Benedict.”

“Who names their kid Benedict?”

“Plenty of people!”

My eyebrows rise as I look to her with disbelief that she returns with a glare.

“Did he tell you where he lives?” Charleigh asks, undeterred by my attempt to change subjects.

My index finger slams against my chest. “Drunk. Remember?”

“At least you remember what counts I suppose.”

“I don’t remember his name, Charleigh!”

“But you remember that he made you see stars!”

“Stop! You make me sound like a floozy.”

“You were a floozy. You got pissed and slept with a complete stranger with good teeth.”

“He did have great teeth,” I agree.

“At least we know he has good hygiene, that’s a plus.” I groan, slapping a hand across my eyes to hide from my own embarrassment. “I’m just teasing. I’m proud of you, Crosby, you finally got a piece! It’s been over a year since the last time someone dusted your hallway.”

“Stop!” my objection is met by laughter which has my eyes rolling.

“Don’t get your knickers in a twist. I’m just teasing you. I’m glad you found someone you’re interested in.” Her focus moves back to the windshield for a moment and then turns to me, her lips pressed tightly into a hopeful smile. “We could try changing the last two digits and try dialing the number, see if we get anything.”

I look down at the palm of my left hand that’s been scrubbed clean. Two weeks ago I woke up with a pounding headache, a hazy recollection of events that involved meeting a guy with auburn hair, warm amber eyes, and some of the straightest, whitest, most even teeth I’ve ever seen, along with a phone number that was half smeared/half worn off of my palm. I vaguely recall mentioning to him that it was hard to read at the time and him smiling at me, offering me more water. My memories contained blurbs including people dancing and me laughing, but the bright smile, and eyes that held so many unspoken words that I could vaguely recall trying to pull out of him, were the most potent. The memories grew clearer and clearer as the night went on, including one where I definitely remember convincing him I was sober enough to have sex.

I, Lauren Crosby, convinced a complete stranger to sleep with me at a house party.

♦ ♦ Cover Re-reveals ♦ Royal Pains by Nina Mason ♦ ♦

Today we are revealing the new covers for Nina Mason’s Royal Pains, an erotic series set in Scotland and England during the Restoration period (the latter half of the 17th century, for those who don’t know). Ms. Mason decided to put new, sexier covers on the series to celebrate the launch of book three, THE DEVIL’S MASQUERADE. All three new covers, the blurbs for the books, and the buy links follow:
Royal Pains, Book One
DEVIL IN DUKE’S CLOTHING

Innocence lost. Paradise found.

Maggie York, a convent-raised foundling, knows the Duke of Dunwoody’s
sexual tastes are a shade or two darker than most, but marries him
anyway—partly because she has no other prospects and partly because, try
as she might, she can’t seem to stop fantasizing about her dashing rake
of a guardian.Robert Armstrong, the duke, is a Roman Catholic whose extreme
devotions as a child warped his desires as a man. He’s also a slave to
the times in which he lives–and to his king. Everything he is,
everything he holds dear, depends on staying in Charles II’s good
graces. Unfortunately, Maggie isn’t the bride the king selected for him.
Now, to make amends, the duke must either whore his wife or be reduced
to a penniless and unprotected commoner at a time when Catholics are
persona non grata in Great Britain.

Buy it now!

Royal Pains, Book Two
THE DUKE’S BEDEVILED BRIDE

The tawdry tale of the Duke and Duchess of Dunwoody continues…

Maggie Armstrong, the long-lost illegitimate daughter of the heir
presumptive to the throne, is bedeviled by her husband’s limited
definition of fidelity. After observing him in a ménage à trois at the
court of King Charles II, she is determined to bring him around to her
way of thinking—

by any means necessary.Robert doesn’t mind being punished for his transgressions. Rather,
he enjoys being whipped, especially by his beloved bride. Unfortunately,
her heart might not belong to him alone. His younger brother, who he’d
sent abroad to clear the way for himself, is coming home sooner than
expected, and Maggie’s feelings for Hugh may not be as dead as her
husband had hoped.

Both duke and duchess soon learn, to their peril, Hugh Armstrong is
not the honorable man they’d been led to believe. Insanely jealous of
his brother’s situation, Hugh will stop at nothing to strip Robert of
all he holds dear—including his life.

But the real danger for Robert and Maggie is not the villainous
Marquess, but the growing friction betwixt Catholics and Protestants in
Restoration Era Great Britain.

Can their love survive the trials that await them?

Royal Pains, Book Three
THE DEVIL’S MASQUERADE

Beware the devil in disguise…

The year is now
1685 and Maggie’s father has just been crowned King of Great Britain,
but that doesn’t mean trouble is over for the Duke and Duchess of
Dunwoody. Rather than cool the flames of hatred between Papists and
Protestants, the coronation of a Catholic monarch has only added
accelerant to the already raging blaze. Two-faced devils lurk in every
corner of the royal court, as do diseases with the power to kill and
maim. When Robert falls prey to the smallpox virus, it looks as though
Maggie will lose the two people most precious to her–her beloved
husband and their only child–the son she bore three months before after
five years of heartbreaking miscarriages and stillbirths. The one
person in London who can help save her son demands a steep price in
exchange her services. Will Maggie trade Robert’s hard-won fidelity to
save her only child…or offer the apothecary an even more scandalous
alternative?
Disclaimer: Royal Pains, intended for readers 18 years and older, features flagellation, bondage, group sex, and other highly erotic situations.

Excerpt

Without knowing Matt’s plans, or of his escape, Marie screamed up at the sky as Matt’s plane flew directly over the hospital. She reached up and wailed as his plane soared higher. She could feel him, feel his pain and it added to her own. She stretched out her arms towards him as she implored him to come back to her. The invisible twin cord was stretching between them and growing tight. It pulled at her soul and pulled at her heart as she felt the distance between them growing. In the corner of the room, the ghost of her mother sat and watched as she sobbed profusely.
“Mamma, he’s leaving,” she wailed in anguish.
“Yes, my child, but you will find him again.”
“Must I spend my life chasing him?”
Her mother tutted.
“If you had told him, he’d have taken you with him. Didn’t he come for you before?”
“Yes, Mamma.” She looked down as the tears dropped on to the floor of her locked hospital room.
The door opened and the doctors walked in. Their white coats flapping around them as they encircled her and looked down. She had been kneeling in the far corner and now she looked up at them, her eyes fearful.

What Others Are Saying

Another book which takes you on a snake twisting and turning journey of disbelief. How to review without giving the many things away? This could be the hardest review to write. This book is so fast paced that the words were literally jumping off the page. ~ Goodreads Review

This books delivers AGAIN! …
A range of happiness,anger,hate,sadness,OMG,WTH moments as it continues on with Matt’s story. So far I have loved to hate Matt throughout the other books. But this one has bought sadness into the mix of my feelings towards him.~ Goodreads Review

Matt is back again after fleeing from the law to America. It’s going to be hard to say much as I don’t want to give anything away that will spoil the enjoyment of this book, but let me tell you that it is a fantastic read, I think this is my favourite of the series! ~ Goodreads Review

As all of the other books in this series, I devoured every sentence from the Foreward to the Epilgoue. My emotions went through the ringer once again. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry! I was shocked and surprised! ~ Goodreads Review

Excerpt

We walked the now familiar path back to our hotel, through the dark uneven streets out of Dublin’s city center. A hint of rain and the lingering scent of the fresh flowers that had been sold on the streets hours earlier filled the air.

I held Blake’s hand, admiring the details of the building architecture framing the old streets, greeting the bright-eyed faces that met us on the sidewalk. It was almost midnight, but our schedule was a mess and I was in no rush to be anywhere as long as we were together. Seeing my old professor again had been a flashback to a simpler time in my life. So much had happened since that first meeting in the Angelcom boardroom that he’d arranged with Max’s initial support. I could have never known then that I’d fall head over heels for the cocky investor sitting across from me…that I’d be his wife. But here we were, bound together as closely as two people could be.

Blake caught me closer to his side and brushed a soft kiss over my cheek. “I like Brendan. I can see why he’s become a friend.”

I smiled. “It seems odd to call him that, but it’s true. He encouraged me to build the business when I had so many doubts. He’s the reason I took the path I did.”

“A path that led you straight to me.” He squeezed my hand. “Lucky me.”

I was lucky too. I couldn’t deny it. But I could have never imagined traveling the road I had.

“You’re quiet. What are you thinking about?” he asked.

I blew out a breath and shook my head. “The business, I guess. I can’t help but feel like I…failed somehow.”

He glanced down at me. “You didn’t fail. You learned.”

I scuffed the sole of my boots against the stones as we walked, avoiding his stare.

“I’ve been around the block a few times, you know. You should trust me.”

I smirked. “That’s why I married you, of course. For your business acumen and wealth of knowledge.”

He lifted an eyebrow.

“And your mountains of money,” I added quickly.

He frowned. “You’re trying to tell me you didn’t marry me for my dashing good looks? I might be insulted.”

I pursed my lips, trying to look serious. “If I had to pick one thing that tipped the scales, I’d say it was your exceptional skills in bed. I think that’s where you really excel.”

“Well then”—he laughed, his eyes twinkling—“at least my purpose is clear.”

He gave my ass a firm squeeze. Laughing, I pushed him away as we approached a street performer who was crooning for the barest of audiences. A small group of French-speaking tourists stood nearby, and an older man, dirty from the streets, sat on the opposite side of the street with a sloppy grin.

We slowed to listen as the tourists dispersed. The song was sad, but rich with love—raw and emotional the way he delivered each verse. Blake turned me to him, bringing us chest to chest. Our fingers laced, his breath warm against my hair, he led us into a simple nameless dance. I swayed toward him and closed my eyes, clinging to his muscular frame the way I clung to every magical moment between us.

Straining for the lyrics through the singer’s thick accent, I caught the verses.

When misfortune falls sure no man can shun it.

I was blindfolded I’ll ne’er deny.

Now at nights when I go to my bed of slumber,

the thoughts of my true love run in my mind.

Another moment passed as the young man’s voice faded into the night. The song was a somber one, made light only by his passionate delivery of it. Like so much of life, the pain was what you made it. He’d made something sad beautiful.

I sighed, still tight against Blake’s chest. His body emanated warmth. His heartbeat was a steady reminder of his support, his love—a force that had saved me, changed me, and healed me in ways I’d never thought possible. He tipped my chin up, the glint in his eyes matching the passion in my heart. He parted his full lips, but hesitated, a wordless moment passing between us.

“I’m going to show you the whole world, Erica.”

“I can’t imagine enjoying a minute of it without you,” I whispered.

He stilled our slow dance, tracing a fingertip over my lips, his countenance now serious in a way that threatened my next breath.

“And I’m going to make you fall in love with me all over again. Every morning and every night. In every city and at the edge of every ocean. I’ll remind you why you’re mine and why I’ve always been yours.”

I drew in an unsteady breath, feeling his promise all the way to my soul. Swallowing hard, I found my voice. “I think you’re on the right track.”

I arched toward him until our lips met. Soft and slow at first, the kiss went deeper, stealing every thought that didn’t revolve around his taste and touch.

We broke apart slightly when a gravelly voice interrupted us.

“Go make love to her, lad, before she changes her mind already.”

Behind us, the man who’d made his home for the night in the entryway of a high-end store offered an imperfect grin, pairing his words of wisdom with a friendly tip of his small bottle of liquor.

I smiled, and Blake, by the dark look in his eyes, seemed to immediately accept the stranger’s challenge.

“I plan to,” he murmured, his tone all velvet and delicious threat. My skin tingled and he took my mouth again with a kiss that promised so much more.

Excerpt

I look at the clock and realize I still have an hour left. Turner is on a conference call, therefore I can’t ask him if he wants to skip out a little early and get to the bar for happy hour. Reaching for my phone, I decide to kick back and relax and maybe download some new songs. I plug in my phone to keep it charged and start listening to some music as I browse through the new selections.

“Clove?”

I jump, catching sight of Zack out of my peripheral vision.

“Christ, you scared the shit out of me!”

I sit back in my chair with a smile on my face, placing my hand over my heart as I slump back in my seat. I laugh, finding the situation funny. Pulling my ear buds out, I watch my brother as he strolls in and sits across from me at my desk. But he’s not laughing or smiling.

“There’s something wrong,” I say in a strangled voice.

“Yeah, there is.”

“Is . . .?”

I start crying and can’t seem to get any words to come out. My chest starts heaving and I hold onto the edge of my desk, my knuckles snow white from my tight grip.

“Is he cheating on me?”

“It’s worse. Much worse.”

The way he looks at me tells me whatever his news is, it’s going to rip me to shreds.

“Wha-what is it?” I can barely choke the words out.
