Excerpt

© Ivy Rose 2018


This is an unedited excerpt, subject to change.

 

Dominic had always been the bad boy from the other side of the tracks—the wrong side. He was always on a most wanted list, especially with the ladies. The girls followed him around like he was the pied piper and the guys considered him their hero. Me on the other hand, I was the nerd. I always had my head in a book and never thought for a second that Dominic knew my name.

Rumors were he’d only dated college girls and that high school girls weren’t enough for his experienced taste. Dominic looked older for his age so the rumors of the wild parties he attended were believable. He didn’t have a baby face or that lanky awkwardness that most teenagers go through. No, he was defined and cut like a Photoshopped image right out of a magazine. He had a body created only in imagination. His jaw was as chiseled as his cheekbones, his dark hair styled effortlessly. I envied the lucky girl who ran her fingers through it.

Dominic demanded attention when he walked into a room, even though he hardly spoke a word. There was something about him that just mesmerized a crowd. To watch him, to listen to his every word…he was hypnotizing.

Imagine how I must have felt the day he stopped in the corridor and asked me—no he told me—that I was going to prom with him. I was convinced I was on Punk’d. He was Dominic Stone and I was, well, just me. Avery Carmichael

This is my story and how I fell in love with a man who only knew how to love fiercely. So fiercely you had to feel it to believe it. He let his guard down with me. I was his sun, his star, his home…only I made a choice that shattered him more than life ever could. The worst thing is if you asked me if I would I do it again, my answer would be yes!

Cover Reveal: Dark Embrace by Elle Boon

Title: Dark Embrace
Series: The Dark Legacy Series #1
Author: Elle Boon
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Cover Design: Tibbs Design
Model: Stuart Reardon
Release Date: February 8, 2018
Blurb

A DARK LEGACY where only the strong survive and those who
are Goddess touched can complete the warriors who fight to protect the world
from the creatures that go bump in the night.
DARK EMBRACE 
Jennaveve,
the Fey chosen by the Goddess to be the queen of her people for the past few
millennium, is tired and wishes for a break, but hadn’t counted on being
reduced to almost mortal thanks to a dark stranger. They say you should be
careful what you wish for. The last time she’d taken a break, her Fey had left
their realm, resulting in shifters on Earth known as the Mystic and Iron Wolves
and even more she was still searching for.
Damien and
Lucas Cordell knew they’d share a Hearts Love when the time came. As the twin
sons of the Vampire King who’d mated a shifter, they were the first of their
kind. When they’d thought their mate was finally within their reach and was a
shifter like their mother only to realize she wasn’t theirs, they’d almost lost
their lives to the alpha of the Iron Wolves, Kellen Styles. Instead, the error
led them to the being that was…the Fey Queen Jennaveve. Only she was even more
elusive than the wind.
Time and
patience was something Damien and Lucas had in spades, until the female they’d
already laid claim to, even if she hadn’t accepted them yet, was taken by an
enemy. Saving Jenna became their one and only focus. As time and realms slip
between them, their fear for her had them forgetting about patience and made
claiming Jenna as their Hearts Love, hoping she accepted their Dark Embrace.
Will the
Cordell Twins be able to rescue Jenna from the evil who has taken her? Will
Jenna get her powers back? Who is the dark presence and how will they defeat a
being who is strong enough to bring the Fey Queen down to her knees?

Excerpt
They both turned
as one toward the door as a commotion swirled into the room.
“What have you
done?” Raina asked.
Lucas looked at
the tall man who followed behind their sister, waiting to see what Creed, the
son of Satan, had to say. Hellboy himself would be a good one to have on their
side. “Shit, how’d you get in?” he asked as realization dawned.
Damien flashed to
his sister. “Where did you come from?” He held her by the arms, giving her a
little shake.
A deep rumble
came from Creed. “Boy, I suggest you unhand my Eros, or I’ll remove your arms
from your body.”
Lucas came to
stand next to his brother. “Our Hearts Love is missing along with our father.
We’ve been locked into this fucking castle and you two just strolled in like
it’s nothing. We just want to know if you can get us out.” The last was yelled
at a decibel that bordered on a roar, but Lucas was at the zero fucks giving
point.
“You got two
seconds before I start dismembering your brother. Tell him to get his fingers,
palms, and any other body part off my Raina if he wants to keep them.” Creed’s
voice had become the deep tone of his demon side.
“Damien, you
might want to take a step back before we have to rumble with our brother-in-law
in front of baby sis here. Raina, please answer the damn question while our
brother is letting you go. Now, Damien, release her.” He put as much order
behind the last part, hoping to reach his twin, but he’d never seen his twin’s
eyes turn such a dark obsidian like their father’s.
Raina wrapped her
arms around their brother, stilling Creed from going killer beast. “Damien,
calm down. We popped in like we always do. I felt mama’s distress and told
Creed I needed to visit. He of course insisted he come with. When we got here I
couldn’t find her, so I followed you two morons’ scents. There’s another, not
quite the same, but familiar smell here too.” Her voice shook, the slight
tremor more an indication of her rising worry. She released Damien and went to
the same corner. “It’s like dad but toned down.”
“Can you track
him?” Damien asked.
“No,” Creed
growled.
“He took
Jennaveve and our father went after him, alone. He’s our…brother,” Damien said
in a barely there whisper.
Raina spun to
face them, her hand going to her throat. “What?”
Creed flashed to
her side. “She will not be your sniffing dog.”
“Our father has
another son. Goddess, its messed up to even say that. He’s the one who hurt
Jenna. He nearly killed her the last time he had his hands on her. Somehow
that…bastard traced her back here and took her out from under our noses. Now,
our father is tracking them alone while we stand here arguing. We can’t breach
these walls, but you two can. You can sense him, Raina. Please.” Lucas held his
hand out, holding the pillow with Jenna’s scent still on it.
“That’s why
mother is hurting.” She moved forward, a tear slipping down her cheek. “Creed,
I can’t stand here and do nothing when my family is falling apart.”
“Damn it, I knew
this family stuff was going to be a pain in my ass.” Creed jerked the fabric
out of Lucas’s hand. “It’s the Fey Queen. I can scent her as well. We go
together, all of us on one condition.”
Lucas and Damian
nodded, waiting.
“I’m in charge
and Raina is not to be harmed.”
“Hellboy, you can
call all the shots as long as we find our Love.” There was nothing he wouldn’t
agree to in order to find Jenna.
“I’m so going to
regret this.” Creed dropped his chin to his chest.
Raina turned to
face Creed.
Damien pointed at
the two. “No making out with our sister in front of us. Save it for the
bedroom. Let’s go people, times a wasting.” He changed into all black clothing,
and although his words were teasing, the hardness behind the tone was anything
but.
“Can I eat them?”
Creed asked.
Raina shook her
head. “You promised to be nice to my family.”
“Can I let Liv
eat them?”
Their sister
snorted. “No, you told her she couldn’t do that either. Come on, boys. Let’s
get this party started.”
Lucas focused on
Jenna’s sweet smile and promised himself they’d have her tucked between them
soon. When he opened his eyes, his brother was staring with that same single
minded intent on his face. “We’ll get her back and make sure she can’t escape
without one of us always knowing where she’s at.”
Raina snorted.
“You two will learn, a woman like Jenna won’t take to being caged or coddled.”
He met Creed’s
dark stare. “How’s that working for you, Hellboy?”
Creed lifted his
middle finger. “You still wanting a way out of here, or we gonna sling insults
back and forth? Believe me, your little nickname is nothing compared to the
things I’ve been through and trust me, boy, I’ve definitely had much bigger
beings say much nastier things than that to me.”
Instant regret
punched him in the gut. “Damn it, I’m sorry man. You’re right. Hellboy isn’t
meant to be a…bad thing. Shit! I like you and I think you’re great for our
sister.”
His sister’s mate
tilted his head and nodded. “Good enough. Let’s go. One big circle like…well,
one big happy family.”
Damien groaned.
“Son of a bitch, not you, too.”
Their sister
clapped like she was proud to be part of the crazy, wrapping one arm around
Creed and held the other out. He moved forward, slipping his hand in hers,
waiting for Damien to grab onto his other one.
Once they formed
a circle, Creed’s lips formed a straight line. “Here we go boys and my girl.”
Darkness came
quickly. The opulent bedroom replaced by a forest that had gone eerily quiet.
Creed moved next to Raina, waving his hand around her, changing the sexy dress
she’d had on into all black, making her resemble a character from the movie
Underworld. He didn’t have time to question the man as they all seemed to
notice the unnatural quietness.
“Anyone know
exactly where we are?” Damien’s voice echoed around them.
Creed closed his
eyes, then opened them quickly. “We’re still on Earth. Something is unnatural
here, but it’s not demon born.”

A high school English teacher, an author, and a fan of anything pink and/or glittery, Lindsay’s the English teacher cliché; she love cats, reading, Shakespeare, and Poe.
She currently lives in her hometown with her husband, Chad (her junior high sweetheart); their cats, Arya, Amelia, Alice, and Bob; and their Mastiff, Henry.
Lindsay’s goal with her writing is to show the power of love and the beauty of life while also instilling a true sense of realism in her work. Some reviewers have noted that her books are not the “typical romance.” With her novels coming from a place of honesty, Lindsay examines the difficult questions, looks at the tough emotions, and paints the pictures that are sometimes difficult to look at. She wants her fiction to resonate with readers as realistic, poetic, and powerful. Lindsay wants women readers to be able to say, “I see myself in that novel.” She wants to speak to the modern woman’s experience while also bringing a twist of something new and exciting. Her aim is for readers to say, “That could happen,” or “I feel like the characters are real.” That’s how she knows she’s done her job.

Lindsay’s hope is that by becoming a published author, she can inspire some of her students and other aspiring writers to pursue their own passions. She wants them to see that any dream can be attained and publishing a novel isn’t out of the realm of possibility.

PULLED UNDER – NOVEMBER 28, 2017

He is blond, tattooed, and dangerous. She’s as beautiful as she is mysterious and could be his destruction…

Asher wasn’t always a member of the elite Walker Security team, he was a billionaire’s son, who rebelled against his father’s controlling hand, and ended up in New York City’s underground of drugs, rock n roll, and danger. But that is long behind him, and while his tattoos and long blond hair remain, he’s now a chameleon, far more comfortable in a suit and tie than a leather jacket.

 

Or so he likes to tell himself.

 

But now Walker Security needs him back inside the underground club scene for a police case they’re working. Women are dying, murdered, and the clock is ticking until another victim is claimed. When Asher is pulled back into this toxic world he meets Sierra, who is as beautiful as she is mysterious. A woman who calls to a darker side of him, long suppressed, unleashing it in what becomes wicked hot passion and obsession. But Sierra has a secret, one that leads her, and Asher, to a dangerous place, and game, with dangerous players, and the game is about life or death.

FALLING UNDER – JANUARY 23, 2018

Ex-special forces, Jacob King, is a man who keeps to himself, having learned the hard way that letting people close to you, trusting them, might just get you killed. A lesson he learned when members of his Special Ops team turned dirty, while others, men he considered friends, died. He made them pay. He made them hurt. He put them in jail. And so he doesn’t trust anyone anymore. He keeps his women hot and fast, his friends few to none, and his clients through the elite Walker Security at a professional distance, but safe.

It works for him. Until it doesn’t.

His newest job should be simple and cut and dry. Jewel Carpenter, the daughter of the CEO of Carpenter Enterprises, is receiving death threats. He’s to protect her and find out who is issuing the treats.

Simple. Cut and Dry.

Until it’s not.

 

Until the chemistry between he and Jewel is all about love, hate, and sex. But even as he fights the attraction to Jewel and discovers there is more to her than meets the eye, the real threat comes not from the threats she’s receiving, but the connection she has to him. Because his past has come full circle, and those men he’s made pay for their sins now want him to pay. And what better way than the woman in his bed?

WES

I love women and women love me.
It’s not my fault I’m irresistible. Okay, I may be a little cocky too.
All I have to do is post a picture of myself shirtless with my cat, Snickers, and the women flock to me.
It probably helps that I’m good with my bat and balls.

A selfie, a smile, and I have them in bed—but never in a relationship.
Until Carrie entered the game.
She may not know it, but she owns me. And I’m not letting her go.

CARRIE

I’m a professional. No, not THAT kind of professional.
I’m an orthopedic physician for the St. Pete Mantas and my job is everything.
I love the game and I love my players … but I never fall *in* love with any of them.
Especially not players like Wes. Especially Wes.

He thinks life is one big game.
One sexy, romantic, and sometimes sweet, game that’s left me confused and little bit worried…
*I may have actually fallen for the ultimate player.*

I’ll have to beat him at his own game if I have any shot at walking away with my heart intact.

She writes steamy, sexy romance with one half of her brain and romantic suspense, action adventure, and children’s books with the other half.

Growing up she traipsed through the islands of the Gulf Coast, camped in the Everglades, dove the Keys, and generally felt more at home spending her days outdoors with a good book.
