Series: Trinity #5
Author: Audrey Carlan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 22, 2017
Not many can say they were burned by fate. Iâm the exception.
Scalded figuratively, emotionally, and physicallyâ¦ I have the scars running down my arm, ribs, and side to prove it.
The doctors have done what they can to heal me by smoothing the abraded skin using other parts of my body. But they can only do so much. Sometimes, what canât be seen canât be healed.
The fire that night took more than a pound of flesh. It obliterated my talent, beauty, and most importantly, seared the connection I had with the man I loved. Sure, it was me who pushed him away, but I had my reasons. I did what any woman would do in my situation. I gave up everything so that one day heâd find happiness and peace.
Now Iâve healed a bit on the outside, and on the inside, but I still crave the one I let go. To this day he looks at me with fire in his eyes, a heat so bright in his being he glows with it. I fear the light, the flames that could consume me whole. The problem now is, heâs not mine anymore. I just may have waited too long to fight for him, for us, for a future together.
Thereâs only one thing I can do. Let fate decide.

Huffington Post Best Ugly Cry Book
PLAYING IN THE RAIN
A blur of movement caught my eye as the rain on my windshield gave the illusion that I was underwater. He was running, which I suppose is what people do when they’re caught in the rain. A huge furry dog was running next to him, matching his long, even strides, both of them drenched and dripping, their feet splashing through puddles, raindrops running off their faces.
His white t-shirt had become transparent and clung to his muscled chest, and I could see the rapid rise and fall of every breath. He raised his hand, the tendons flexing in his forearm as he pushed his dripping black hair out of his eyes.
And then he’d passed me, leaving a glimpse of his tight butt in a pair of running shorts, and long muscled legs striding out. All of those things caught my attention, but what totally captured and held it so I couldn’t look away was the huge smile of pleasure on his face.
He was soaked to the skin and smiling so wide I could see his even white teeth, grinning like a loon, like he was enjoying the rain.
“What an idiot,” I muttered to myself, locking my doors just in case lunacy was contagious.
The runner slowed down, turning into the entrance of the park opposite where I was trapped in my car. He bent down to lever a tennis ball from the dog’s mouth, and his t-shirt rose up his back, showing his trim waist and lean hips. He threw the ball like he was pitching a baseball, and the mutt barked and leapt after it, his thick tail windmilling crazily.
The dog bounded back, barking around the ball wedged in its mouth, leaping up and leaving muddy footprints over the man’s t-shirt. He threw his head back and laughed, wrestling the saliva-coated ball from the dog, and threw it again.
He didn’t even try to shelter from the rain. He was playing with the dog—playing in pouring the rain.
And then his head snapped up and I swear he looked right at me, as if he’d felt the weight of my amazement. I sunk lower in my seat, refusing to meet his gaze, staring stonily ahead, but not before I noticed that the crazy guy was freakin’ beautiful. Not just plain old handsome—but beautiful. High cheekbones, lips that were full and pink from exercise, and stunning pale blue eyes, framed by long dark lashes. Model perfect white teeth, and a body built for…
Oh God, I was overheating, because if ever I’d seen a body built for sin, that man had it. Although now I’d seen his face full on, he was younger than I’d originally thought; my age perhaps.
The traffic began to move forward, tearing my thoughts from the beautiful man who was standing in the rain, still watching me.
I let the Prius crawl a few feet up the road. Red tail lights flared in front of me then vanished again, and I was about to pull away for a second time when someone banged on the passenger window, making me squeal in fright.
It was him, and he was smiling at me, gesturing for me to put down the window.
I stared back, my mouth hanging open in shock, then I jumped again when the car behind me honked loudly.
“Patience is a virtue, asshole!” I yelled to the rear view mirror, then flushed bright red when I saw my gorgeous stalker grinning.
He gestured again for me to roll down the window. I pressed the button to open it a crack, and he slid a piece of paper toward me, winked, then continued with his run, the ugly fur ball loping beside him.
I read the smeared writing, the ink bleeding into the wet paper. I’d expected a name and a phone number, or maybe the name of a bar and a time, but all the paper said was,

I fell in love with a boy a long time ago.
I was only a small girl. Scared and frightened, I was taken from my home and held against my will. His father hurt me, but he protected me and kept me safe as best he could.
Until I left him.
I ran the first chance I got and even though I knew he wasn’t behind me, I didn’t stop. The branches lashed out at me, punishing me for leaving him in the hands of a monster.
I’ve never felt such guilt in my life.
Although I survived, the boy was never found. I prayed for him to be safe. I dreamed he’d be alright and come back to me. Even as a young girl I knew I loved him, but I betrayed him.
Twenty years later, all my wishes came true.
But the boy came back a man. With a grip strong enough to keep me close and a look in his eyes that warned me to never dare leave him again. I was his to keep after all.
Twenty years after leaving one hell, I entered another. Our tale was only just getting started.
It’s dark and twisted.
But that doesn’t make it any less of what it is.
A love story. Our love story.
Twenty years ago
I’m so used to this room. I don’t know how long it’s been, but I don’t bother to count the days anymore. I don’t hope for Mama to come find me anymore. I know it’s useless now, and it only makes me more upset.
The only solace I have is lying beside me. I speak without thinking, just saying what’s on my mind to break up the silence in the cold room.
“I wish I were a bird.” I blink at the faint light shining through the small window so high up on the cinder block wall. “Then I could fly away.” My voice lowers to nearly a whisper and I turn on the hard ground, facing the boy at my side. I tuck my arm under my head and swallow the lump in my throat as I avoid his gaze. It’s such a serious look in his light gray eyes. I can hardly stand the chill that runs through me.
Some days I think he’s angry with me. I can’t shake the thought that he hates me; that he hates being stuck here with me, both of us helpless and at the hands of his heartless father.
“Both of us.” I clear my throat and chance a look up at him as I add, “I mean I wish we were both birds.” I turn to gesture toward the far wall as I explain, “So we could fly through that window.”
The boy smiles at me, although I don’t think it’s genuine. “But it’s closed,” he says in a voice so rough and low it makes goosebumps spread across my skin. He clears his own throat, propping up his head in his hand and leaning on his elbow to look down at me. My heart does a weird flip in my chest, fluttering when he leans closer to me. I can feel the heat of his body. He’s older than me. He looks it, too. I feel my cheeks heat with a blush and I look away, turning back to the window and pulling at the thin gown I have on. It’s not enough to keep me warm down here and I know if I were just a bit closer to the boy, I’d be more comfortable, but I keep my distance.
“Well, what animal then?” I ask the boy, curling on my side and tucking both arms beneath my head.
He’s quiet for a moment, but then he answers, “A wolf could break it.”
I resist the urge to turn to face him, closing my eyes as they roll and a small smile forms on my lips. A wolf could never fit through that window.
I decide to play along, feeling a warmth run through me as I hear him scoot closer to me. He never touches me, but he likes to be close to me. And I like it too although I don’t tell him. “Well, you be a wolf and break the window, and I’ll be a bird. Together we can run away.”
“I saw a wolf kill a bird once on TV,” he says, but the boy’s voice is devoid of emotion and the shock of what he said makes me turn to face him, sitting up and pulling my knees into my chest.
“Why would a wolf do that?” I feel my brows pinch and my lips turn down; I know it’s obvious I’m horrified from what he said, and it only makes him laugh.
He shrugs his shoulders and picks at a spot on the concrete floor, a satisfied smirk on his lips. Something about the look on his face makes my heart do that fluttering motion again and I find myself inching forward, my toes barely touching his thigh. But we both notice that they touch.
“A wolf doesn’t have any reason to hurt a bird.” I stare at him, but he still doesn’t look up at me. “I don’t understand.”
The boy tilts his head to look at me and this time, the expression is something I’ve never seen before. There’s a rawness in the light gray flecks, a heat on the outer edge where his eyes get darker. Almost like a flicker of a flame giving his gaze an intensity that makes my body freeze, but not with a coldness, with a burning heat.
“I think he did it,” the boy starts to say, licking his lower lip and staring right through me, not caring that I can’t even breathe when he looks at me like that, “I think he did it just because he wanted to.”

Release Date: August 21, 2017
HATE ME, TAKE ME
They say thereâs a thin line between love and hate, and in the case of these couples, weâre talking razor thin!
In this hate-to-love duet by Clare James, two couples cross that dangerous lineâ¦more than once!
Falling for your sisterâs nemesis? Only a low-life dog would do something like that, right? And that ainât me, not anymore. Iâm trying to be a stand-up guyâfinally making smart decisions, helping my little sister, and getting my shit together. For once, things are finally going my way.
Until Jenna shows up. As soon as I meet her, I know sheâs the enemy. Iâve heard enough to understand that sheâs off limits. Banned. Forbidden. But when she moves in next door, itâs impossible to stay away, and I soon discover sheâs not as bad as everyone says. Of course, sheâs difficult, selfish, and a royal pain in the ass, but sheâs also gorgeous, smart, kind, andâ¦well, letâs just say I am that low-life dog. Traitor. Turncoat. And the worldâs shittiest brother. Woof. Woof.
It's an offer I can't refuse...
He was my best friend. He is my current enemy. Yet he wants me and I want him. And since weâre both stuck in our hometown unattached, we agree to a truce.
Two hours, once a week, no strings attached. But what sounds like the perfect arrangement, turns into so much moreâ¦yet not nearly enough.
This hate-to-love duet includes: Never Be Tamed, Two-Hour Truce, and exclusive bonus content.
âJenna,â he said with more force this time. âLook at me.â
I flashed my gaze up to him and then back down, quickly.
It wasnât enough for him. He placed a finger under my chin and tipped my face up to his so I had no choice this time. His eyes were soft, but intense. Not quite black as they were before, but they were dilated, and his lids were slightly hooded. It made me wonder what my eyes looked like to him in the moment. Were they giving me away? Could he see that he had broken through the wall that not many people had? Did he know how desperately I wanted him to stay? Could he tell I needed his touch?
Did he know he was dealing with a completely sex-starved, socially awkward, recluse?
The corner of his mouth quirked up just then, and I thought yes, maybe he did know.
âThank you for dinner,â he said as my eyes tore away from his and focused on his mouth. He licked his bottom lip, and the flickers flashed in my stomach again. Sparks working toward a flame.
I nodded, unable to find my words when he was invading my space.
His lips moved closer to my face, and I swallowed, bracing myself.
My throat went try. My hands shook. And that flame took hold inside me. I didnât want to wait for him. I wanted to kill the daylight between our bodies while my hands tangled in his hair. I wanted to know what he tasted like. There was so much I wanted, but in the end, I couldnât do any of those things.
And instead of his lips descending on mine, they veered left, and landed on the shell of my ear.
âI know you thought I was afraid to be alone with you, but just so you know,â he said with a ragged breath that I felt from the top of my scalp all the way down to my toes, âIâm not afraid of anything.â
He pressed his lips on my cheek, and then he was gone.

X and I were probably doomed from the start.
Thatâs what happens when you meet in court-mandated group therapy and then try to steal from him to pay off your blackmailing drug dealer. Former drug dealer, thank you very much. I'm turning over a new leaf and all that.
Which is why I should leave him alone.
Except he tempts me to do things I swore Iâd stop doing. Itâs that whole gruff, grumbly, anti-social thing he has going on. Him, flame. Me, moth. Something about him calls to me, makes the blood hum in my body. And I don't want that feeling to end.
Lucy Connors is straight-up insane.
She looks like a Disney princess and tries my patience in more ways than I thought possible. Besides the fact that I have to save her cute little ass from jail, I canât quite figure out how to leave her alone. Even when sheâs trying her hand at Breaking and Entering. Especially when it's myhouse she's burglarizing.
Yeah, we were probably doomed from the start.
But thatâs the thing about being hooked on something so good, and so bad for youâyou donât walk away when you should.
Well, letâs see ... Iâm a wife and a mother. Iâm a writer who wants to make people smile when they read my words. I own a dog that sheds roughly eighteen pounds of hair every day. I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). Iâm almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I'll love you forever.
I am a wife to one and a mom to two humans and one cat. I have a deep and abiding love for nachos - especially the kind with the liquid cheese, like from Taco Bell (sorry). I run on less than four hours of sleep thanks to copious amounts of Diet Coke. (Note: this paragraph is not sponsored by anyone except my hungry stomach.)
As a Navy brat, I grew up all over the country, from California and up the east coast from Florida to New England and Colorado. I currently live in Idaho, where we have lots of potatoes and windmills.
I write character-driven contemporary romance novels, heavy on the emotional connection. I LOVE love. I love writing about broken characters who find their soul mates.
Series: The Force Duet #1
Authors: M. Malone & Nana Malone
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 8, 2017
I am the shadow that haunts the night. I am a hunter, a protector...a force for good...I am Jonas Castillo.
For years Iâve existed on the edge of the dark, protecting innocents who canât protect themselves. Untilâ¦ her. Jessica JJ Jones. The bane of my existence. A bright light in the dark. The crack in my armor. A loud, argumentative beautiful crack in my armor.
But first, thereâs a more immediate concern. JJ is running scared. And to protect her I might have to break the vow I made years ago.
Book 1 of The Force Duet. Book 2, Enforce, will release on 8/29/17
The elevator doors slid open and Jonas stepped into the entryway. It was dark and quiet, the only sound coming from the direction of Matthiasâs room. That kid never slept no matter what time of day it was, but he also didnât ask questions. So he was off the hook.
Then he stepped into the living room and was confronted with a tight, toned ass in skintight leggings.
All the parts of him that had been asleep fired to life. Jonas sucked in a deep breath as JJ shifted her position at the window, the globes of her ass bouncing slightly with the movement. His dick tried to follow her. It should have been a welcome diversion. Hell, at least he wasnât depressed and feeling the sting of failure anymore. But this was JJ. The woman lived to torment him. So as spectacular as that ass was, it was the last thing he wanted to see in the middle of the night coming off a tough case.
âWhy are you still awake?â
It came out harsher than heâd intended, but there was no need to apologize. JJ didnât offend easily, probably because she thrived on insults and could throw out verbal daggers with the best of them. As heâd expected, she merely turned her head slightly to acknowledge his presence before turning back to the night sky, dismissing him.
âWhy canât you mind your own business?â she asked in a deceptively sweet voice.
Never mind that just a few moments ago, Jonas had wanted nothing more than to climb into bed without having to engage anyone. Now he stepped farther into the room, instinctively drawn to her. There was just something about Jessica Jones that he could not resist. It was sick in a way, but he got off on fighting with her. That smart mouth and those killer curves were the perfect combination to make his dick hard while simultaneously pissing him off.
It was a heady combination.
âWhat would be the fun in that?â Jonas asked, speaking truthfully.
She turned from whatever it was that was holding her attention outside and eyed him with a sneer. âI would ask if you had a hot date but thatâs doubtful. Jackasses really arenât in this season.â
Now that hurt. âWomen love me.â
She sniffed and slid him a sidelong glance. âFrankly, I donât see the appeal. But then again there are people who like candy corn and peeps. Thereâs really no accounting for tasteâ¦or lack thereof.â
âHey! Candy corn is awesome.â Jonas might have to rethink his taste in women if she was dogging on candy corn. How could you not enjoy something that was pure high-octane sugar? âYouâre probably just too bitter to enjoy it.â
Her eyes flashed and for a moment there was something behind the look that made him regret his choice of words. âToo bad for you, youâll never have a taste.â Her words carried a hint of hurt with them and he wanted to bite off his tongue.
They snarked at each other and played fast and loose with their words, but he would never actually want to hurt her. It bothered him that he even could. In his mind, JJ was as invincible as her comic book character namesake, and finding a chink in her armor was both disturbing and endearing.
âIâm sorry, I didnât mean anything by that.â
âWhatever. Youâre probably right. Iâll leave the sweetness to you. I just happen to like my men a little bitâ¦stronger with a hint of a bite. Same way I like my whiskey.â

My employeeâs daughter. The tomboy. The kid who once did odd jobs around the brewery. Thatâs all she wasâ¦ until three years passed and she walked into my office for an interview.
Frankee Dawson is no longer that girl I once called Kiddo. Sheâs grown into a beautiful, sexy, desirable woman. Very desirable. And thatâs a problem. Sheâs my employeeâs daughter. Lovibond family. And too young for me. Too innocent.

Unedited and subject to change.
Frankee and I stayed up until three in the morning. I couldnât keep my hands off of her. Not when she was wearing that sexy-as-fuck lingerie.
Iâve never seen anyone wear anything like that. Sure, Iâve watched porn and seen it on those women, but never on a real-life woman. And never one in my bed.
Frankee is like my very own porno princess.
I gave her six orgasms last nightâone an hour. Iâve never done that before. Not that I donât have the ability. Iâve just never been inclined to.
She doesn't stir. Not even a little. I shake her shoulder this time. âFrankee. Wake up, baby. I have to go.â
She rolls to her back and slowly opens her eyes. âSomeone fucked me into next week. You'll have to check back with me when it comes around to see if I can wake up.â
âYou don't have to get up, but I do have to go.â
âNo. Don't go. Staaaay.â She has no idea how badly I want to.
At some point during the night, Frankee washed off her makeup, and Iâm seeing her for the first time without cosmetics. Itâs confirmed. Sheâs a natural beauty and doesnât need that garbage on her face.
âI wish I could stay in this bed with you all day, but I promised Stout I'd help him move his stuff to his new house today. I was supposed to be there already, but I couldnât bear to leave when you looked so beautiful in my bed.â
I already know heâs going to give me shit for being late.
âWait a minuteâ¦ before you go.â
Frankee dashes to the bathroom, still wearing her porno princess attire from last night. That is one convenient getup. I hope she has more of those.
She returns from the bathroom with her hair twisted into a topknot. I donât know what it is that makes that so damn sexy.
She wraps her arms around my shoulders and lowers herself to straddle me on the bed. âKiss me before you go.â
Her mouth is minty. And hungry, based on the way she devours my mouth and neck. âIs this your plan for tempting me to stay?â
Her hands are working to undo the button and zipper on my jeans. âNo. This is.â
