Excerpt
PROLOGUE
COLE
Have you
ever been to a funeral where the preacher stands before the friends and loved
ones of the deceased and talks about how shitty the person was? How he fucked
around on his wife? Or spent his family’s life savings to feed his gambling
addiction? How about during his bachelor party when he snorted coke off a
hooker’s ass?
Me neither.
Why is it
that we’re fucking saints the moment we die?
You hear
the preacher say things like, “Oh, John
Smith was a lovely man who loved his wife and kids,”
when he should really
be saying, “John Smith was a worthless
piece of shit who fucked the underage babysitter every chance he fucking got
while his wife was busy working two jobs and raising his ungrateful children.”
And let’s
not forget that the deceased in that casket before you never even went to
church. Let alone knew the preacher who speaks so highly of him. All he knows
are the stories the blinded loved ones wrote down on a little card for him to
share.
He’s a fucking puppet.
I haven’t
read the Bible word for word, but I know the Lord says if we confess our sins
and ask for forgiveness, he will cleanse our souls, and we will be forgiven.
Poof. It’s like magic.
Now that
begs the question–what if you’re not sorry? What if you don’t care to be
forgiven?
No amount
of holy water could cleanse my soul, and I’m okay with that because when I
sinned, I understood that I would one day have to pay. We’re all going to die
eventually. You can be one of those people who bury your head in the sand to
avoid talking about it all you want, but it’s life!
Live or
die.
Heaven or
hell.
Angel or
devil.
It’s black
and white. There are no gray areas.
So tell me
… when you’re lying in that casket in front of your friends and family, what
are they going to think of you? Are they gonna believe that preacher who talks
bullshit, or are they gonna know you didn’t care if you were going to burn for
eternity?
I’m not a
religious person. Obviously. But I do know this. When I am damned to hell,
it’ll be because I fucking earned it.

Cover Reveal: Slaughter by Shantel Tessier

Title: Slaughter
Author: Shantel Tessier
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Dark Romance
Cover Design: Dark Water Covers

Release Date: October 26, 2018

Blurb
My name is Avery Decker, and my story isn’t for the faint of
heart. It is about revenge and hatred, misery and violence. I wasn’t always
this way even though it was in my blood. I grew up happy and in love with my
best friend until she betrayed me and walked away. After that, I fell into the
deep, dark world I was meant for.

Presleigh Clarke’s actions turned me into the ruthless man I am today. Too bad
for her, I believe people should pay for the things they have done. The more
painful and messy, the better. I get off on making people bleed. It feeds my
inner demon, and right now, he is starving. She crossed me once, so now she’ll
know what it’s like to fear me. But not all stories end the way you think they
will … mine certainly didn’t.

ASHLYN 
I went against
all I believed in and fell in love with what should have been a one-night
stand! I fought it, tried to make up rules to prevent the inevitable, but
somehow, he knew all along. He understood what I wanted and was willing to
comply. I was the one who took him for granted. I was the one who made him walk
away. And now, he’s gone and I’m left with nothing but my thoughts and regrets.
He was never supposed to be my happily ever after. But my favorite love story
ends in tragedy, so why wouldn’t mine?
RYDER 
I played the
white knight, doing what every woman dreams of to win her over, yet it still
got me nowhere! But what did I expect? I wasn’t the man she wanted! Nothing I
could have done would have landed me the girl. I guess love is funny that way.
One minute, you think you have the girl, and the next, you realize you were
blinded. Walking away was hard, but watching her with another man was harder.
Sometimes you have to pick your battles, and I know when I’ve lost. Love
shouldn’t be a game, but I learned someone always loses. For once, I wasn’t the
one being selfish, but I was the one who paid the price.

Blurb
I’m a sinner with no regrets.
I’m a man with no shame.
I’m a lover with no soul.
What am I?You’re a loner with no friends.
You’re a beggar with no place to go.
You’re a face with no name.
Who are you?It doesn’t really matter what I am or who you are. Everyone has sin in common. But I pride myself on doing it better. Through the eyes of another, I am envied. If they only knew the wrath I have endured. Greed can be a motherfucker, but it is what makes us strive to be better. Lust can make you burn, but without it you would freeze to death. Some of us are a glutton for punishment and want to feel the pain that reminds us we’re still alive rather than overcome by sloth.
The lure of these seven deadly sins is like an addiction. And I intend to indulge in each of these unforgivable sins.

Excerpt

I cross my arms over my chest, getting more comfortable. “Come in,” I call out.

The door opens, and she comes walking in as if she owns the place. Shoulders pulled back and chin up. She is dressed much differently than she was last night, but it doesn’t change the fact she’s beautiful. She’s pulled her long, dark hair up into a messy ponytail with loose pieces framing her flawless face. She has an oversized white t-shirt on that hangs off one shoulder. The color of her bra strap gets my attention. Black—my favorite color. She’s wearing a pair of black yoga pants that hugs her thin legs. Even though they cover more of her legs than her shorts did from last night, they seem more sexual. More intimate in a way that makes me want to peel them off her slowly.

“I need to have a word with you …” I arch a brow at her hard tone even though it did sound cute “… sir,” she adds a little softer, and I hide my smile. So she doesn’t have as much backbone as she wants me to think she has.

“I don’t think we’ve been properly introduced,” I say as I stand. I reach out my right hand toward her. “My name is …”

She holds up her hand stopping me. “I know who you are.” She cocks a dark eyebrow. “A word?” She’s all business.

I smirk as I sit back down. “Of course. And please, call me Case.” I gesture to the chair that sits across my desk.

“I’ll stand. This won’t take long.” She takes in a deep breath, and I allow myself a quick look at her large chest hidden behind that t-shirt. I can’t touch her, but I sure as hell can enjoy the view.

“What can I do for you?” I ask with amusement. I can think of several things I could do for her, all of which would require her being naked and bent over my desk. I rub my hands on my thighs as I feel my cock start to harden at the thought of her, open-mouthed, moaning in pleasure.

“My brother told me that he owes you.” She gets right to the point.

My face hardens at that statement. My amusement is replaced with anger. What else did he tell her? “I don’t see where what business I have with your brother is any of yours,” I say flatly.

She crosses her arms over her chest and lets out a huff. The motion blows the dark strands around her face. “That is where you are wrong. I don’t know what he owes you, but I’m willing to pay it.”

I refrain from chuckling at that. I lean forward and place my forearms on my desk. She quickly scans the tattoos on my arms and then looks back at me. “Taylor…”

“Call me Miss Williams,” she informs me lifting her chin.

“Miss Williams, I assure you that you cannot pay what he owes me.”

I watch as her tough act starts to unravel. “I don’t have a lot of money, that’s true. But maybe I can make payments,” she offers, her voice sounding more desperate than demanding.

I shake my head. “This isn’t about money.”

She stomps her foot, and I chuckle. Her beautiful blue eyes narrow on me as she uncrosses her arms and points an angry finger at me. “Name your price!” she demands. “Everyone has a price.”

If she only knew how right she is, but I say, “There is no price.”She throws her arms out to her side. “I came here …” She pauses as she looks around the room as if it can give her some sort of an answer. Then she mutters a curse in frustration. When she looks back up at me, she looks desperate. Her eyes have softened, making them look lighter than they are. Her lips part as she breathes in a sigh, and her shoulders slump in defeat. And I hate that I like the way it looks. That it makes me feel like she needs me. That I hold all the answers. Too bad she’s not gonna get them.
