The Escape by A.K. Steel




Title: The Escape
Series: Secrets of the Harper Sisters #2
Author: A.K. Steel
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Cover Design: Opium House Creatives
Release Date: May 18, 2022


BLURB

Being a good girl is overrated—being bad is so much more fun.

I’m Jasmine Harper, your typical good girl. Always have been. Type-A personality, smart, driven, total perfectionist in everything I do. I know what I want from my life and how to get it. Everything except for the perfect man… None of the guys I date can compare to the impossible standard I’ve built up in my head. I’m a romantic at heart, and I’m sure he exists somewhere, I just haven’t found him yet.

Being the good girl can be exhausting, so when my friend comes to me with a less-than-conventional offer for a good time, I see it as a chance to get out of my head for a bit. I find myself at After Dark, an exclusive sex club.

And that’s where I see him. Axel Stone. A gorgeous billionaire, single father, with a past so complicated you need a map to understand it. He’s not my perfect match—in fact he couldn’t be further from it—but together, we’re able to escape reality, and I fall so hard, I forget who I am and any dreams I may have.

Even good girls can be bad sometimes… and sometimes they find that one night is more dangerous than they ever imagined.




EXCERPT

Be my escape from reality. That line has played on repeat in my head since Monday afternoon. Something about it is so sad. He hates his life so much he needs an escape. I kind of get it, and if that is his way of coping, then I can be that for him. In a way I think he will be that for me as well. My gap year from trying to find the love of my life. It’s clearly not going to be him, so this is just about enjoying myself, saying goodbye to my ideals and inhibitions and having a little sexy fun. This is exactly what I need.

This is exactly what I need, I say to myself again, just so I’m completely convinced that I’m doing the right thing here.

AUTHOR BIO

I’m a contemporary romance author my novels feature swoony men, twists and turns and always a happily ever after.

I’m a busy mother of three pre-teens, who lives on the beautiful South Coast of New South Wales, Australia. I have always been a creative soul, with a background in fashion design, interior decoration, and floristry. I currently run a business as a wedding florist and stylist, but have always had a love for reading romance novels, something about how the story can transport you to another world entirely.

So in 2020 I decided to jot down some of my own ideas for romance stories, always with a happily ever after of course, and from that came my debut novel Always Fraser. From that moment I haven’t looked back, writing has become a part of me. I have a long list of stories plotted and I look forward to being able to share all my stories with you soon. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I loved writing them, xx

They’ll fake it ‘til they make it and then some…

Football player Sloan ‘Willow’ Williams has been looking for The One for years. He’s checked all the right places—and some of the wrong ones—and found sh*t all. But the moment he sees Eden Jade Cartwright, he knows she’s the girl for him.

Unfortunately, her entourage won’t let him anywhere near her…

Eden doesn’t want anything, aside from an international music career. She does, however, enjoy being worshipped, which the giant redhead seems inclined to do. But with a world tour beckoning, now isn’t the time for a boyfriend…

Willow has the perfect solution; a short, fake relationship that will boost Eden’s clout and scratch both their itches. Only he’s hoping the beautiful blonde will keep him around. And Eden’s praying she’ll be able to let him go…

First and Forever is a standalone romance by the critically acclaimed author Eve Dangerfield.

EXCERPT

The thought reverberated around Willow’s head alongside the trance beat. Her trance beat. Eden Jade—better known by her DJ name, Bunny Descent, stood behind the decks on stage, one hand raised. The lights turned her white-blonde hair to pink and her ripped wedding dress was spattered neon by the leaking glow-sticks her fans were waving.

Her perfect face was screwed in concentration as she fiddled with something on the decks. The music transitioned from a hard, pulsing beat to something Willow recognised—‘Self Care’ by Mac Miller. The crowd cheered, more people rushing toward the stage, hands raised. It was three in the morning and the tiny dance floor was thrumming.

Willow had expected the crowd to thin as the night wore on, but the opposite happened. Bunny Descent was the seventh DJ of the night, and the audience was more hyped for her than anyone else. Watching the crowd dance, he felt a surge of pride. From what he’d read in interviews, Eden was scared of not breaking through, worried her sound was too erratic for main stages. But there was no way the woman in front of him wasn’t making it big. She oozed glamour and with each and every song, he grew more amazed she wasn’t famous.

“She is a goddess,” a guy slurred in his ear. “I, like, actually fuckin’ love her.”

Willow turned and saw the guy was talking to his equally fucked up mate, but that didn’t change the fact he was vocalising his own thoughts about Eden.

I’m different, he told himself.

Why?

I just am.

That had always been the only reason he needed. People called him overconfident, but that implied he tried to be confident. He didn’t. He was just lucky. He got what he wanted.

As the music surged higher, Willow danced along with the crowd, working his weight from foot to foot. A few girls smiled, looking for someone to kiss—or maybe because they recognised him, but he only had eyes for Eden. On stage she leant forward, touching the hands of the people dancing in front of her. The second she made contact, the crowd screamed fit to burst the roof. Willow knew exactly how they felt.

He’d been scoping her Instagram for ages, but there was nothing like seeing her in real life. With her long blonde hair and big eyes, she looked like Sailor Moon—his first and most powerful crush. He watched as Eden put her hands behind her head and shook, her tits bouncing in her wedding dress. Attraction burred through him like an electric current. He’d never been so into anyone. Even Sailor Moon. What could that be but true love? As he watched her dance, he made himself a promise—come hell or high water, he’d talk to her tonight.

A hard elbow bashed his side.

“Oi,” Derek shouted over the music. “What are we still doing here? Everyone’s out of their minds.”

Willow danced away from his friend. “I dunno. I’m not tired.”

“You’re never fucking tired. Where’s the patient?”

Willow glanced around. Patrick Normal, better known as Psycho, was swaying softly beside the bar, apparently having forgotten he wanted a beer. “Psycho’s… having a time.”

Derek followed his gaze. “Fuck me, he’s maggoted.”

“Yeah, he’ll be up for hours. Better we’re still out with him, hey?”

“This is all your fault. If Mara was in town, I wouldn’t be here.”

“Yeah, yeah. You’ve made it clear you’ll be dogging the boys from now on, Hardo.”

The track Eden was playing bled into a remix of that Rasputin, love machine song. The dancers packed around the stage, jumping so hard the floor shook. Eden swished her white-blonde hair over her shoulder and his cock throbbed. He could see her doing that while she rode him—looking down her nose as he worked to make her come.

His side burst with pain. He rubbed it, glaring at Derek. “What’s your problem?”

“You. You’re making gorilla noises.”

“You could hear that?”

“Of course, I…” A look of barely concealed terror dawned on Derek’s face. A look Willow knew all too well. He backed away in case Derek decided to put him in a headlock. “What have I done now?”

Derek pointed at the stage. “Please tell me we’re not here because you want to fuck that DJ?”

Willow gave him a winning smile. “Do you want a drink?”

“I wanna know if you dragged me all the way to the city to watch you fail to pick up a DJ.”

The first time I saw him, I knew I’d never want another man the way I wanted him.

The second time, I drank a bottle of his most expensive cognac, which I’d never be able to afford on my own.

And the third time… well, he caught me stealing from him.

Stealing from the head of the Irish Mafia wasn’t smart. But then I never claimed to be.

Now I owed him a debt… a big one. And it couldn’t be settled with money, or favors.

He only wanted one thing…

Me. Submitting to his darkest demands. Once the debt is settled he’ll let me go.

Except he is forbidden to me. Because if I were smart… I’d figure out another way to repay my best friend’s father.

Release Date: May 10, 2022
Cover Design: Deranged Doctor Design
Cover Model: Isaac Moreno
Photographer: Rafa G Catala





I’ve never met him. Never even seen him.
But I’ve heard the whispers. The rumors. The stories about him being as cruel as his father. Maybe even worse.

They say his presence wraps around your throat whenever he enters a room. And that’s exactly what I feel the moment he walks into the diner where I work, and I hear people breathe out his name.

Alexius Del Rossa.

They call him the crown prince of the Dark Sovereign—a society of men who own everything but the weather in this town.

Men say he has ice in his veins, and women talk about the corrupted heart in his chest. He’s the kind of man you pray never to cross paths with. The kind of man a girl like me has no chance of surviving.

But while his eyes trap mine, and his magnetism touches my skin, I’m unable to move when he forces me into a corner and hands me an envelope.

It’s an offer.
One I can’t refuse.

See, I have nothing. No family. No friends. No home.
I can disappear and no one will know.

And that is exactly why he chose me.
