(Susan)
The doorbell is ringing. Why do people want to bother me on Sunday mornings?
โ€œJackie, can you answer that please? I just got out of the shower,โ€ I yell from the bathroom.
โ€œMom, itโ€™s for you,โ€ she says, from outside the bathroom door.
โ€œWho is it?โ€
โ€œI donโ€™t knowโ€”some man. He has a delivery.โ€
โ€œJust sign for it.โ€
โ€œHe says he has to give it to you.โ€
โ€œAll right, tell him Iโ€™ll be there in a minute.โ€
I throw on some clothes. My hair is a wet mess. I go to the door and there is a young man holding a long thin box.
โ€œWhat can I do for you?โ€ I ask.
โ€œAre you Susan Green?โ€
โ€œYes.โ€
He hands me the long box. โ€œThis is for you from Marc Gray. He would like you to join him today for lunch at one pm at the French Alpine Bistro on Hopkins. I am supposed to wait for your answer.โ€
I open the box, and it is a single, long-stemmed, red rose. โ€œThank you, but tell Mr. Gray that I cannot make it.โ€
โ€œVery good, then he would like you to join him tomorrow at noon at the Spring Cafรฉ on Spring Street.โ€
โ€œI am busy; I canโ€™t make it,โ€ I respond.
The delivery guy is looking a little frustrated. โ€œThen Marc Gray would like you to meet him at noon on Tuesday at the Pyramid Bistro on Main.โ€
โ€œHow long is this going to go on?โ€ I ask, with a brief smile.
โ€œThe instructions have twelve different scenarios; I am to run through all of them until you say yes.โ€
Amusing as it would be to make the guy go through all twelve, it would not change the fact that Marc is showing real determination to speak with me.

Book Blurb:

I always knew I was different.

From a young age, my mind has been plagued with things only I could see. Some hauntingly beautiful, others completely terrifying. Never knowing if these visions were real or just hallucinations, I learned how to lock them down and ignore them. I learned to take solace in the relative anonymity of city life and find peace in the rainy days my city of Seattle is known for.

But just when I think my life is getting on track and my dreams are achievable, a moment of weakness causes me to learn a hard and fast lesson.

My entire existence has been a lie.

Now Iโ€™m faced with a new reality thatโ€™s as implausible as it is fantastical. Filled with realms and veils, light and dark, fae and daemons, gods and angelsโ€”things I donโ€™t understand but am forced to acknowledge. It doesnโ€™t help that the man teaching me about my unique gifts is the gorgeously handsome Carrick Byrne, one of Seattleโ€™s richest and most powerful men. He intimidates, annoys, and intrigues me all at the same time. I donโ€™t trust him and yet thereโ€™s no one else to help me.

No longer certain who to put my faith in, what to believe, or how I fit into it all, one revelation is clearโ€ฆ

The world as I know it will never be the same again.

  The Revelation of Light and Dark is book one of the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and is best enjoyed if read in series order.

Raquel

It's all a lie.
After everything he promised, after everything we went through.
He lied.
I'll never be willfully blind to the truth again.
Sean's no better than the rest of them, no matter what he says.
He ruined us. He ruined me.
And I let him.
So, I'll do what I do best…
Run.

Sean
It was a lie of omission.
I didn't do it to hurt her; I did it to get closer to her.
I'm not like them, and I'll do what I can to make it right.
Raquel wants to run away from us, run away from me.
I'll chase her across the country if I have to.
I'll get her back.
'Cause there's only one thing that drives me…
Love.

Blackmailing Her Bride by Brianna Hale

Title: Blackmailing His Bride
Series: Paravel Series #3
Author: Brianna Hale
Genre: Steamy Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 24, 2021
Cover Design: Untold Designs



I bled and struggled in darkness to place King Anson on the throne, and Iโ€™ll do whatever it takes to keep him there. Iโ€™ve never asked for anything in return. I donโ€™t want recognition. I donโ€™t need thanks.

But the moment I lay eyes on her, I want Sachelle Balzac.

A family calamity has Sachelle neck-deep in trouble that goes all the way to the top. Iโ€™m the only one who can keep her secret safe, but my protection comes with a price.

I want everything from Sachelle, and Iโ€™m going to get it any way I can. She says itโ€™s blackmail. I say seduction.

Either way, I win.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: This is the third book in the Paravel series. They are intended to be read in order.





Mr. Rasmussen reaches over and slams the emergency stop button, and the elevator shudders to a halt.

My heart thumps in panic. “What are you doing?”

“Snatching a few moments with the most beautiful woman in Paravel. Your pussy tasted so sweet the other night. Did you finish what we started?”

He plants fierce kisses by my ear. “Iโ€™m sorry I had to leave you. You must have been so. Very. Needy.”

I run my hands up his chest to push him away and flames ignite in my palms. I open my mouth to tell him to move back, and he kisses me. A man like him shouldnโ€™t kiss like this, with so much sensitivity and control. Heโ€™s teases my reaction from my lips with his tongue and mouth.

Thereโ€™s a crackle, and then a tinny voice comes over the speaker. “This is Findley Elevator Management. Do you have an emergency?”

Rasmussen breaks the kiss and says against my mouth. “No, weโ€™re great.”

Weโ€™re not great. Weโ€™re stupid. Especially me.

Thereโ€™s a hesitation, and the voice asks, “Sir, did you push the emergency stop button?โ€™

Mr. Rasmussen gathers my ass into his hands and pulls me flush against him. The thick line of his cock presses against my hip and stomach, and I moan.

“Shh, little fox. Theyโ€™ll hear you.”








Thereโ€™s nothing Brianna Hale likes more than a large, stern alpha male with a super-protective and caring streak, and when sheโ€™s not writing about them she can usually be found with a book, a cocktail, planning her next trip to a beautiful location or attending the theatre. She believes that pink and empowerment arenโ€™t mutually exclusive, and everyday adventures are possible. Brianna lives in London.

Crazy For You






















Amazon 












































In the dark lies hope.


One boy looking for salvation. One girl yearning for hope.


Colton Caldwell is hotter than I rememberโ€”broad chest, muscles in all the right places, wavy brown hair, and eyes that suck me in. 


All private-school perfection. 


Pity he canโ€™t drive worth a damn. 


He hit me with his truck, just backed out without looking, leaving me bruised, aching… and well aware of him. 


But things have changed since he left. A lot of things. 


Heโ€™s no longer the budding football star, and Iโ€™m no longer the gawky kid he never noticed. 


We have one thing in common nowโ€ฆ our tortured past. 


When I witness a fight between Colton and his dad, I realize just how much weโ€™re alike. 


The only problem is, he doesnโ€™t seem to think so. But as the darkness we try to leave behind pushes us togetherโ€ฆ


We realize one thing is certain.


Yesterday is gone. 


Tomorrow isnโ€™t given. 


So what if we live today as if itโ€™s our last?


Crazy For You is a standalone boy next door romance with a happily ever after and is suited for mature audiences.











Bestselling author S.B. Alexander writes paranormal, new adult, and young adult romance. Her writing is emotional, angsty, and character driven, and features hot heroes stealing hearts. 


S.B. or Susan as she likes to be called is a navy veteran, former high school teacher, and former corporate sales executive. Sheโ€™s a lover of sports, especially baseball, although nowadays you can find her on the golf course.

Rafael

I came for war. I left with an obsession.

With one look, Isa captivated me. She consumed me, drawing me into her world without ever knowing the dangers of mine.

I intend to make her mine, no matter what lies I need to tell to manipulate her into falling in love with El Diablo. It should be simple enough, but secrets lurk in the depths of her multicolored eyes, and Iโ€™ll do anything to understand what broke her before I had the chance.

Because sheโ€™s mine to break.

Isa

Heโ€™s temptation, pushing me toward sin with his wicked touch. But the sins of the flesh are different from the sins of the mind, and as much as I hate his secrets.

I will never tell him my own.

EXCERPT

He quirked a brow, that intense gaze of his turning unsettling as he stared down at me. “No,” he said, his lip twisting with the words. My pulse quickened, sensing that small hint of something that lurked beneath the surface. With a glance at the man standing next to the walkway up to and around the falls, I looked back to Rafael with a flare of my nostrils and purse of my lips.
I huffed in disbelief as I shook my head and fought back the surge of emotions within me. I’d been so fucking stupid to think he understood that my fear came from a place of trauma. From something not so easily overcome. Leaning into his space, I laid down the challenge I knew probably wasn’t my smartest move.
But something in the cruel set of his eyes made me want to defy him.
Something in the excited parting of his lips told me he wanted that too.
“Fuck this,” I snarled, turning on my heel and yanking my wrist out of his grip. Hiking my purse up on my shoulder, I strode down the road we’d entered in on and made for the main street. Once I had enough distance and found a safe place to settle, I’d call Hugo to come and get me.
But I’d be damned if I would get in that water with him.
“You don’t want to walk away from me, Princesa,” Rafael murmured at my back. The words crawled up my spine, insidious and menacing enough to halt me in my tracks, and I turned back to glare at him.
I swallowed my nerves, pushing down the budding fear that he brought with his carefully crafted words. Rafe could be terrifying when he wanted to be.
I just wasn’t sure if the frightening face was the mask, or if it was what really waited beneath the charming demeanor he gave me in all the other moments.
“And why is that?” I asked, pressing my lips together and turning back around to hide the slight tremble in them. He was the kind of man my grandmother warned me about with her stories. The temptation and lure of evil spirits, as they resided in people who looked just like us.
But evil couldn’t look like beauty carved in stone, could it? Even if it did explain why I burned when he touched me.
He stepped closer, until I felt the heat of his body at my back. He reached around me to grab my face and tilt it, so that I stared him in the eye with one of mine. “Because I’ll chase you,” he murmured, leaning down to touch his lips to my cheek in a slow brush of heat against my skin. His mouth slid up until his nose touched my hair, breathing me in deeply. He hummed just above my ear. “I think the real question is, what will I do when I catch you?”
I swallowed down the saliva in my mouth, clenching my eyes shut as I tried to think of an appropriate response to words like that.
What did one say, when the man she was falling head over heels in love with showed signs of being a monster?
“That isn’t funny, Rafe,” I whispered, stumbling over my own feet as he turned my body to face him. His hand gripped my hair harshly, tipping my head back until I met his unyielding gaze.
“Am I laughing, Princesa?” I shook my head slightly, wincing when his grip didn’t relent. “I promise you, I am far scarier than whatever you think lurks in that fucking water.”
He released me as suddenly as he’d grabbed me, taking a few steps away before he paused and looked back at where I stood, rooted to my spot and staring at him in horror. I looked to the road, watching as the man who stood guard puffed up his chest and stood a little taller.
It felt like I’d walked into a trap, and still didn’t understand even the basics of what it would mean for me.
A cage without walls. A pressing force on my chest.
“Don’t do it,” Rafael warned me, drawing my attention back to him. He held out a hand, waiting for me to take it. It was a test, I realized, as he forced me to decide my next move then and there. “I like it when you tell me no,” he murmured, making my breath freeze in my lungs as he tilted his head to the side and studied me. “I think I’ll like it when you fight me, too.โ€
