Love Survives
Love's Suicide #2
by
Jennifer Foor

Release Date: March 7th, 2015





*** Synopsis ***


Imagine being in love with the same girl since you were ten years old, only to have her fall for your twin instead. This story is rocky.

It will rip you apart and possibly put you back together again.

I know this because it's my story.

The pain and anguish experienced in this is what it was like to hold onto hope that some day we'd find each other again. I won't sugar coat the details of what I went through to have her, nor will I apologize for any actions that led me right back into her life.

Sometimes love isn't enough.

Sometimes it takes a little fate.

*** Excerpt ***


Dear Mom and Dad,

I wanted you to know that I've arrived overseas, and have settled in the best I'm able to. I owe you both an apology. Never in a million years did I see things playing out the way they have. I didn't show up at the wedding to ruin everyone's lives. The truth is that I couldn't help myself. I had to pursue her, because I've loved that girl since we were children. She's everything to me.
I know I made a mess of things. I screwed up and embarrassed you. I ruined my relationship with Branch, but I think you deserve to know why. All this time, all the years since they started dating, he'd been feeding Kat and I lies, keeping us apart. From the age of twelve he told me Kat wasn't interested. I trusted him.
Apparently he was doing the same to Kat, telling her that I didn't like her that way. All this time we could have been together, but instead he weaseled his way into her heart, making her feel bad for ever having feelings for me.
I'm not saying that what I did wasn't wrong. I know right from wrong. Two people went into my hotel room that night, and what happened was mutual. We knew the risks, but took them anyway. I honestly couldn't stop myself. Once the truth was revealed nothing could have kept me from her.
I snapped.
You may never be able to understand what it's been like for me, watching her with him, year after year, as if I was a punching bag. I've got thick skin, but even the toughest person would have broken down at some point. I've been trained to replace pain with power, but this doesn't apply. I'm on a path of destruction, because I simply don't care anymore. Branch ruined my life. He was the reason I had to get away. Joining the military was my way out. I knew it would keep me from coming home, and bearing the burden of watching them happy. I punished myself for loving her, and attempted to move on with no result. No matter how hard I try I can't stop loving her, and that's why I know I can't come home. There's nothing left there for me except pain. I'll never regret being able to live under the same roof as my two best friends, but I will hate myself for not going after what I wanted sooner. I could have prevented all of this. We could be sharing our lives together, having children, and waking up to knowing nothing will tear us apart. Instead I'm on the other side of the world, throwing myself into defending my country, because it's the only thing keeping me going.
I can't promise that I'll write back all the time. It's hard for me to sit down and put my feelings on paper. I've already been warned that what I'm about to see over here will haunt me forever. I'm used to living in hell, so I've got every reason to believe that I'll get through it. For what it's worth, I'm sorry that I was such a disappointment. I was acting out, because I couldn't have what I wanted. Jealousy took control, forcing my hand to make irrational decisions. At the end of the day I deserve to be here, in the middle of this battle zone. If something happens to me and I don't return please don't dwell on my death. Just know I'm no longer in any pain. Nothing will ever hurt me again.
Thank you for bringing me up right, and teaching me what was love was. As much as it hurts, I don't regret experiencing it. How I feel about Kat is something special. Not everyone finds their true love so early in life. Perhaps that's why I couldn't keep her. Maybe I had enough time with her when we were younger. No matter the case, I'm appreciative.
Take care of her and Branch. Help them to make amends. We'll always be family.

Until next time with love,
Brooks

*** Synopsis ***


My heart belonged to Branch and Brooks Valentine since we were children, when we were all too naïve to know what that even meant. We didn't understand that when we became adults, love would change us. I had to make a choice and when I did, it ripped our bond apart. Brooks left town, and he took half of my heart with him. It was difficult, but I coped and planned my future with Branch. I thought I'd made the right decision. I loved him and I always had.

Brooks showed up to be our best man the night before our nuptials. After drinks and too much reminiscing, I ended up in bed with the wrong brother. To avoid the humiliation and the fact that I'd ruined all of our lives, I left Branch and the only family I'd ever known.

That’s where my story should have ended.

Two years, one beautiful little girl and an abusive marriage later, I was standing there staring at the man that would always hold my heart.

The only question was...

Would I give it to him

I'm Katy Michaels and this is my story.

Vandal
Ashes & Embers #2
by
Carian Cole





*** Synopsis ***


She takes my breath away; she is so beautifully damaged.
Yes I had broken her, ravished her life, destroyed her happiness. I brought her to ultimate despair. I was responsible for all the pain and suffering that now brought her to her knees in front of me.

Broken.
Hopeless.
Reckless in her agony.

She is a mirror of my own tortured soul.

But what I took away I can give back.
In ways she cannot even begin to imagine.

She is everything right in all my wrongs.

She loves me. She needs me.

She has no idea I'm the one who wrecked her life.

*** About the Author ***


I have a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles and of course, the sweet girls that try to tame them and win their hearts. My debut series, Ashes & Embers, follows the lives of rock band members as they find, and sometimes lose, the loves of their lives.

My first novel in the Ashes & Embers series, Storm, published on September of 2014. Vandal, the second novel in this series is publishing in February of 2015. I currently have approximately nine books slated for this series, as well as an MC series in the works, and a few stand-alones coming in 2015 onward.

Born and raised a Jersey girl, I now reside in beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and our multitude of furry pets and spend most of my time writing, reading, and vacuuming.

*Surprise Release + Sale* The Contradiction of Solitude by A. Meredith Walters + Excerpt + Book Trailer @AuthorAMWalters @InkSlingerPR




The Contradiction of Solitude
by
A. Meredith Walters





*** Synopsis ***


You may notice me but you will never know me.
I prefer it that way.
I am the daughter of a monster.
Born from blood and lies.
Dead before I have truly lived.
But Elian tells me that I'm different.
He tells me that I'm beautiful.
That I'm an enigma wrapped in irresistibly complicated skin.
Elian says that he loves me.
These words terrify me.
I can't trust love.
Or hope.
Or truth.
Because I fear the beast inside.
It threatens to drown Elian and his sweet, unconditional love.
It's a beast that will destroy everything.
**
This is a THRILLER of the psychological/mind f**k variety and is VERY different than my other books. And no I won't tell you if it's a HEA or a cliffhanger. Read and enjoy and discover for yourself.

*** Excerpt ***


Elian pulled at a loose string at the hem of his T-shirt. He dressed like he hadn't done laundry in a while. His jeans were stained and his shirt faded and threadbare. His brown work boots were scuffed, the laces untied and trailing in the dirt. He reminded me of a little boy scared and running.

"I"m surprised you're here," he commented, shifting my focus from his shoes to his face.

"Why is that?"

"You just don't seem like a live music kind of girl." He laughed nervously, as though wishing he could take back his observation.

"You're right. This isn't normally my scene at all," I admitted, leaning into him just slightly.

Elian snapped his fingers together. "I knew it!" As though he had just made a monumental discovery. These were tiny, inconsequential pieces that I gave away without effort. Safe. Painless.

"So why are you here?" he asked, pushing his hair off his forehead. I stared at him for a moment, taking in all the parts of him. His green eyes, the first thing that I really noticed about him. His dark hair that fell in a haphazard disarray across his forehead.

The scars, thin and shiny, crisscrossing along the length of his neck. They were brutal and violent. And when Elian was nervous he rubbed his fingers over the slightly raised skin as though trying to wipe them away. I wondered about the scars. I wondered about his false smile.

I wondered about Elian Beyer and his many, many secrets.
