Then it became complicated….
The passion and heat between us is wild.
Scorching hot and consuming.
He wants more. So much more…

A secret that could tear us apart.

Delusions

Title: Delusions
Author: Amy Crandall
Genre: YA Psychological Thriller
Release Date: September 4, 2018
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
As she waits to give her statement in one of the interrogation rooms of Arcata Police Department, Abigale recites the same line over and over inside her head.
I did not kill anyone.
 
I did not kill anyone.
 
But there’s a trail of bodies, and it leads straight to her. The events that brought her to this very moment all point to one thing . . . her guilt.
She must convince Detective Collins of her innocence, but how can she explain her ties to the victims, and the evidence that has her name written all over it?
Then there’s the mysterious Facebook profile, DarkHeart434. Who is DarkHeart434? And why does it seem like this person has all the answers, including the identity of the real murderer?
As pieces of the puzzle start to come together, everything about Abigale’s life begins to unravel–her past, her present . . . and even her self-proclaimed innocence.

The agent reached for the file he’d thrown onto the table earlier. Flipping it open, he jabbed a finger at an enlarged photo of a person lying on the pavement. “How do you explain this, then?”
Abigale closed her eyes, the photo still burning into the remnants of her mind. The night he was attacked was the last time she’d seen him. She still wasn’t sure how he—
“Abigale!” Agent Ross slammed his hand down in front of her, startling Abigale into opening her eyes again. “I would like you to explain to me how a wild night of partying ended in this!” He pointed at the photo again, and Abigale slapped a hand over her mouth when she felt bile rising in her throat.
“I told you,” she said, “I don’t know!”
An evidence bag landed on the table. Abigale’s pulse skyrocketed. Blood stained the familiar canvas.
“How do you explain this, then?” he asked, his voice menacingly calm.
Abigale felt the fingers around her throat again, squeezing the life out of her. The bag…she’d gotten rid of it. It should have been in the landfill by now. How did they have it? “I—what is this?”
“Why don’t you tell me, Abigale? It was picked up from your house. It’s too bad you didn’t conceal it better when the garbage truck came by to pick it up. He reported it to us immediately. A day after the party.”
Shit.
“I’ve never seen this before in my life. It’s not even my bag!”
Liar.
A vein protruded from his forehead, and Abigale could sense his growing anger. “I know what happened at the party.”

 

Amy Crandall is an avid reader and novelist born and raised in British Columbia, Canada. She began writing in elementary school, publishing her first story on Wattpad.com at the age of thirteen. With the support of her loved ones and newfound friends on the site, Amy continued to share her thoughts and interests in the form of storytelling.

Before her Wattpad.com days, she was published in A Celebration of Poets – Summer 2012 (Creative Communication, 2012) for her poem My Garden. That experience only drove her desire to further pursue writing. Her first full-length novel, “Delusions”, was a featured story on Wattpad.com, reaching #7 in the mystery/thriller genre, and surpassing 115,000 reads, before its publishing.
 
When she isn’t envisioning a new story plot, Amy can be found camping with loved ones, getting lost in a great read, jamming to her favourite tunes, or giving in to her craving of Timmies’ iced lemonades.

Edge of Torment

Title: Edge of Torment
Author: R.B. O’Brien
Genre: BDSM Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 8, 2018
At the EDGE of pleasure often lies a little pain…
 
He didn’t think he was capable of love; she thought she had everything she ever needed. But when former ballet dancer and entrepreneur Annabelle Smith and environmentalist Michael Black meet, they are thrust into a headlong relationship that may devastate them both.
 
Falling almost too fast for this enigmatic, controlling man, Annabelle is both excited and terrified by the fine line Michael walks between his dark and light side, as he introduces her to a world of games, bondage, and punishments. And to her surprise, she likes her submission. She likes the control he wields. And he cannot have it any other way. He likes to bring Annabelle to the edge, and she likes the edge he brings her to. Pleasure has never felt so good.
 
But can Michael fully let go of his trust issues and fall in love? Or will his past leave Annabelle on the EDGE of TORMENT?
(formerly the Natalie’s Edge Series)

Jesus Christ. No small talk. No getting to know one another. I was becoming uneasy and aroused at once. “Are you going to hurt me or something?” I asked, but I knew he would never, at least not physically.
His look told me he did not find that funny, and I blanched.
“I told you. Some of tonight may be unpleasant for you. Good lessons need to be memorable. Would you like to call it a night instead? Otherwise, dinner is ready…now.”
I didn’t want the night to end. He affected me in ways I had never felt before. I trusted him, but I was scared. Again, I was giving up control, not like me at all. But my body ached to be with him. I knew I was trapped and had no will power to refuse him.
“No. I’m famished,” I finally agreed.
“Good. Remove everything you’re wearing except your panties and tank top.” The way he spoke make me shiver. “Please,” he added.
“What?” I let out a gasp of air.
“You did wear panties tonight, didn’t you, Annabelle?” he said with a hint of sarcasm and humor, and I blushed remembering what he did to me the last time we were together sexually, and he found me panty-less.
“You’re in quite a mood tonight,” I said nervously, yet I smiled. He intimidated me and aroused me at the same time. I didn’t understand these contradictions of feelings.
He glared at me again in such a way that I suppressed my sarcasm as I answered quietly. “Yes. I did. Wear panties.” Why did he have this effect on me? I sounded like a bumbling idiot.
“Good to hear. You can leave on those taunting red shoes you’re wearing if you’d like.”
I just nodded, dumbfounded at what this night had turned into. I was too dazzled by him to think of stopping it.
“Would you like to know what I have in store for you, Annabelle? Now that you’ve decided to stay?”

 

“Yes,” I whispered, anxiety becoming palpable.
I can’t remember not reading. Even now, I constantly toggle between two to five books on my Kindle in all genres. But I have always been drawn to the more taboo side of storytelling, even as a young adult, from hiding books from my strict Catholic parents as a tween, to getting lost in the erotic section of my favorite bookstore for hours as a college student, discovering such greats as Henry Miller and Pauline Réage.
In my own writing, which I can’t describe as anything but a “trance-like compulsion,” I like to explore the darker nature of relationships, those riddled with the reality of insecurities and human folly. I am drawn to expose the vulnerability, emotional turmoil, and occasional pain that can come from losing oneself in the heat of passion.

 

 
I hold a degree in English literature and my writing comes from some hidden, unrecognizable place, very different from the reality of my waking world. I am in love with E.E. Cummings and Anais Nin who continue to inspire me when I write.
 
“To write is to descend, excavate, to go underground.”—Anais Nin.

Life had always been good to me, and I made sure to keep it that way.
My mom had given me the only tool I’d need to succeed—manipulation. Add to that
the fact I was beautiful, confident, and rich, and I was on my way to having it
all.
My name is Annabelle, and I was the stereotypical head cheerleader,
dating the star quarterback. The school was mine, and I couldn’t wait to be
crowned prom queen.
One night, my world changed forever. All I believed my future would
hold was ripped from my grasp in a ball of flames. I lost my identity, my
boyfriend, and my friends. Suddenly, I was the monster nobody wanted around.
A scarf hid my true identity, and I was left staring at the beast in
the mirror. My appearance now matched the ugliness I once had inside, but I’d
do everything I could to prove I still had some beauty buried deep within.
Sometimes, you have to lose who you are to become who you were meant to
be.

If I Only Knew

If I Only I Knew an all-new heartwarming and sexy Audible First romance from Corinne Michaels is coming October 26th!

If I Only Knew by Corinne Michaels Audio Publication Date: October 26th, 2018

eBook Publication Date: January 28, 2019 Genre: Contemporary Romance

Cover Design: Perfect Pear Creative

Photographer: Perrywinkle Photography

From New York Times bestseller, Corinne Michaels, comes a new heartwarming and sexy standalone romance novel.

My life was perfect – until a shocking tragedy pulled the rug out from underneath me.

My children were left without a father. I was without a husband and a provider. Instead of wallowing in my grief, I buried myself in my work at Dovetail Enterprises. Landing the promotion as the CEO’s right hand was exactly what I needed.

Getting saddled with Milo Huxley as an assistant is exactly the opposite.

I can’t stand him.

He’s arrogant, irresponsible, and out for my job. As if that’s not bad enough, he has to be devastatingly sexy, and have a posh English accent that makes me squirm on top of it all. I’ve had enough unpredictability for one lifetime, thank you.

But soon enough, we’re fighting less and laughing more. He’s there for me when no one else is. And those good looks aren’t the only panty-dropping thing about him.

If I only knew what to do about it . . .

If I Only Knew will release on audio first! You can listen to Danielle and Milo’s story on 10/26/18 and the ebook will release 1/28/19!

Cold, Hard, & Heartless

Publisher: Hot Tree Publishing

Cover Designer: Claire Smith

Amazon: US | UK | CA | AU

Cold. Hard. Heartless. 

 

If I don’t rise, I can’t fall. If I don’t give, I can’t take. If I don’t love, I can’t lose. If I don’t break, I can’t heal. If I don’t care, I can’t hurt. 

 

And if I don’t expose my heart, it can’t get broken.

 

As a boy, Arlo Jones learned that hearts could literally be broken. His shattered into a thousand tiny pieces when his dad died, and he vowed to never let that happen again. He had to be cold, hard, and heartless.

 

As a man, he has his shtick with chicks. He’s never been in love, or even in lust. He gets horny, fucks, and sends them on their way. Rinse. Repeat. It ain’t broke, so no need to fix it.

 

Until London. Meeting her is the start of something big, like the first bump of coke or hit of the pipe. From day one, the only way forward is deeper in, and there is no easy way out.

 

If this is love, he’s never going to be the same again.

Amazon US: https://amzn.to/2NjbtI0 

Amazon UK: https://amzn.to/2mlSFMX 

Amazon CA: https://amzn.to/2urum4u 

 

We sat at your hospital bed and watched the life ebb from you. Slow… painful… undignified. As we walked out of your hospital room leaving your cold, hollow body, I knew I would never be the same again. Shouldn’t be. Couldn’t be. Didn’t want to be.

 

Cold. We watched as death clawed at you from beyond. Every day it beckoned you nearer. It dragged you kicking and screaming to the point of no return. It left its indelible mark on your mind, body, and soul. You became a shell of your former self. It broke your spirit and stole your pride. We lost our father and friend. Your warm body grew cold. We watched as life went and you went with it. We watched.

 

Hard. Death isn’t a beginning, it’s the end. It saps us of light, laughter, sunshine, and happiness. It puts an end to plans, fun, possibility, and promise. It snatches away childhood, innocence, optimism, and joy. It steals light and replaces it with darkness. Death is the end of tomorrow. The end of hope.

 

Heartless. If I don’t rise, I can’t fall. If I don’t love, I can’t lose. If I don’t think, I can’t feel. If I don’t care, I can’t hurt. If I don’t expose my heart, it can’t get broken.

Stalked by two men she trusted. Stolen in the dead of night, forced to submit to her captors.

Obsession

College student, Everly Pengram, was trying to turn her life right side up again. Heartbroken, pregnant, and alone in a new town, Everly just wanted a fresh start.

Abducted

Lured by her smile and driven by need, two brothers will stop at nothing to have her. It was supposed to be a simple bank robbery, get in and get out. With one look at her plans changed. After years of searching, they finally found the perfect woman, and they weren’t going to let her get away.

Enslaved

Ensnared by their strong, gentle hands, they demanded everything from Everly. Taking her freedom and forcing her submission, the two tyrants would stop at nothing until they claimed her heart.
