The miracle drug that is meant to save her life changes her on a cellular level. She might not be damaged anymore, but she might just be damned in her new life.

As I return his gaze, my heart seems to stop and time slows to a screeching halt. There's nothing else that he can do to save me. The only chance I have now is to trust that these researchers in their government funded laboratories have discovered some miracle drug that might give me my life back. I lean back into my pillows clutching the black and gold fleece Purdue blanket my eight year old niece, Shay, made me when my hospital stays increased to weeks instead of days. Touching the soft fleece helps my rapid heartbeat slow down and allows my mind to consider the options. I close my eyes and consider what I have to gain if I could through with the drug trials. It could help me lead a normal life if it works or it could take away the quality of life in the time I have left. I know deep down I want to live and this trial could mean everything in my battle. After what seems like hours, even though it was only a few minutes in reality, I open my eyes and look for my parents. They are both sitting in the blue plastic covered recliners in my room holding each other's hands with their foreheads pressed together in what I am assuming is prayer. They hear the plastic move on my hospital bed as I shift trying to make myself as comfortable as I can with all the tubes coming out of me and they turn their faces towards me. The look on my mother's face tells me that they know I'm about to make the decision that will forever change our family. A decision that I don't even think they would have the strength to make on my behalf. I turn my eyes to Dr. Bob, who is still sitting on the edge of my bed waiting for my decision. It takes me a few seconds to realize that I hold the keys to my life in what I'm about to say. As I open my lips the tears finally begin to flow.

I utter quietly as I wipe away my tears, "I want to do the trial. Where do I sign?"
























Avelyn Paige is a born and raised Indiana girl. She may be a Hoosier by birth, but she's a Boilermaker by choice! Avelyn lives in rural Indiana with her pastor husband, 2 spoiled cats, and one very odd looking dog. She's an oncology research scientist by day and a writer and book review blogger by night. She enjoys reading anything she can get her hands, baking, and spending time with her friends and family.

Never intending on ever writing her own book, the idea behind the Damaged series came to her on a drive to work early one morning thinking about her father who'd recently passed away. His strength during his cancer and rare blood disease battle inspired Avelyn to do something she's never thought about before. She's excited to see where this wild ride takes her.

✿ Excerpts ✿


Time isn't something I ever thought much about.

It ebbs and flows, but it never changes. I can't make it stop — no matter how much I want to. There's no way to rewind the clock or halt it. In this moment, all I want is to make the world stop and go back to when I was happy and ready to tackle the world. Just two short minutes ago, there was no worry about how my day would go. I was going away with the man I love, the one who healed me. But time isn't my friend. It slaps me in the face and laughs as I stand here wondering how the hell any of this is happening. I don't want to move forward, and I sure as hell don’t want to slow it down.





His voice is thick and husky as he refuses to break from my eyes. "Tell me you're real."

"I'm real."

"Tell me you're really here."

"I'm here with you." My hand rises, and I press my thumb to his lips. "I'm here for you. I'm here with only you. I need you so much."

His eyes close as I rub my thumb, savoring the rough feel on my skin.

"Stay with me," he pleads.

Liam's hands rest on each side of my face as I drag him down further. "There's nowhere else I want to be." Our lips meet, and I lose myself.

♡ Excerpt Reveal + #Giveaway ♡ Beyond The Cut (Sinner’s Tribe Motorcycle Club #2) by Sarah Castille @sarah_castille @RSofRomance





"You don't go out without me. You do not go to see male strippers. You don't see other men. No clubs. No dates. No drinking. No Benson." Cade barked out each rule as he mounted the stairs leading up to his room. The chandelier overhead rattled with each step he took, but upside down, over his shoulder, the only thing Dawn was in a position to appreciate was the worn wooden floor, and Cade's very fine, tight ass.

He pushed open the door to his room, and then slammed it closed and dropped her lightly to the ground. "You answer the phone when I call or text. You don't hang with the brothers dressed in the kind of dress a man wants to tear off you."

Dawn gripped the door handle to regain her balance as Cade stalked across the floor to the window. The room pulsated with the intensity of his emotion, or maybe something was alive beneath the piles of clothes, pizza boxes, bike gear, and magazines. At least it didn't smell as bad as it looked, just a tad... fetid, but laced with the fragrance of his cologne.

"Don't you think you're taking this too far? I mean, Jimmy's not about to grab me from a bar or a club. At heart he's a coward. That's why he's always approached me in the dark or from a distance."

"This isn't about him." His puzzled frown almost made her laugh. "You're mine."

"I'm not yours." Dawn folded her arms. "But since we're laying it on the line, and if you're wanting me to stick around, I have terms, too. You don't go to strip clubs, even for a drink. Nor do you let sweet butts wriggle in your lap. You don't flirt with women or bring them back to the clubhouse. You're a one-woman man unless you want a woman who isn't me, and then I walk out this door."

Tension coiled in the room between them. He stared at her for so long she was afraid she'd crossed some hidden line and nothing would ever be the same again.

"I guess now that we have that straight, I'll take care of those cuts and bruises," she said to fill the silence. "You got a first-aid kit in here?" Her gaze swept over the room, bare of any decoration save for the detritus, a gritty contrast with the huge four-poster king-sized bed and heavy dark wood furniture, remnants from the days before the country house had become the Sinner clubhouse.

Cade scowled. "I'm not finished saying my piece."

Dawn wasn't sure she wanted to hear the rest of his "piece" if it involved any more one-sided rules and restrictions. She studied the room again for any sign of first-aid equipment, trying not to look at all the empty condom boxes or the shiny wrappers strewn across the floor or think about what they meant.

"I got something else to say." Cade's voice held an uncharacteristically sharp edge. "What are you looking at?"

Her cheeks heated and she scrambled for words. "Lots of... pizza boxes. What kind of pizza do you like?"

"Pizza?"

"I don't know that much about you. What kind of pizza do you like?"

"Meat."

She let out an exasperated sigh. "Can you be more specific? Pepperoni, sausage, ham, bacon—?"

"Just meat. Lots of it." His brow creased. "You?"

"I'm kinda into veggies. Not that I don't occasionally indulge in a Slim Fred's Meat Feast when I'm hanging with Banks at his place watching the fights, but usually I like to keep it healthy."

He lifted an eyebrow. "What else you want to know?"

Hmmm. A rare insight into Cade and what made him tick. She wanted to know everything, but from the way he was looking at her — focused, intent, like a predator sizing up its prey — she would have to be judicious with her questions. "Music."

"Mostly 'seventies legends like Bob Seger, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and the Allman Brothers and hard-rock bands like W.A.S.P. and Great White."

"Typical of a biker and not very revealing." Dawn sighed. "I don't suppose you harbor a secret love for Justin Bieber or Taylor Swift?"

Cade's nose wrinkled. "Girl crap. Don't listen to it."

"I like 'girl crap', as you call it. I also like jazz."

"That's 'cause you're a girl."

"I'm a woman." She lifted an eyebrow in censure and he gave her a smoldering, sensual look that made her instantly wet.

"That I fucking know. And 'cause of that, there's no hanging out with Banks, 'cause he knows that, too." He crossed the floor toward her, eating up the distance between them with easy strides of his long legs. "You want to listen to girl crap and hang out and eat pizza, you do it with me. And forget the veg. How are you gonna keep those curves if you're just eating green shit?"

He was so close now she could feel the heat radiating off his body, breathe in his scent of leather, crisp spring air, and the sharp odor of blood. "You like my curves?"

"Love your curves, babe. Couldn't have made it through that fucking ambush if I didn't have these curves to think about."

Against All Odds
Destiny #4
by
J.L. Perry

Genre: New Adult/Erotica

Release Date: May 27, 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


Angel and Chase come from two different worlds. Angel grew up privileged. Her father is CEO of Cavanagh and Associates and her mother owns a successful dance school. Chase on the other hand grew up with a neglectful, manipulating mother, who put her numerous husbands and boyfriends before the welfare of her own son. So much so that when he was twelve, his stepfather at the time, who also happens to be a member of a notorious bikie gang, walked away from his marriage, taking Chase with him.

Angel
Angel is daddy's little princess. In his eyes, no one is good enough for his little girl. Due to his overprotectiveness, at the age of twenty-two she's never had a serious boyfriend. She decides to move away from home to finish school, so she can experience all that life has to offer. That includes men.
When she meets Chase Daniels, sparks fly. He's the ultimate womanising bad boy. Even though her common sense says stay away, she can't seem to control the attraction she feels for him.

Chase
Chase doesn't hold women in high regard due to his past. With his good looks and charm though, he has women falling at this feet. Just the way he likes it. He's a playboy and doesn't do commitment. Then he meets Angel. She's not only beautiful, but sweet and innocent. Nothing like the women he's used to. The feelings he has for her are foreign to him and he doesn't like it one bit. Despite all this, he's drawn to her, like a moth to a flame.

Not only do they have their families to contend with, there's also the secrets from Chase's past. These secrets have the potential to destroy him, and will also tear them apart. The odds are stacked against them, but will they still be able to find happiness together? Or will it be enough to stop the one thing they want more than anything, each other?
