It's all a game until they're betting with their lives.

Alaya Matthews is in search of freedom. Tired of her mundane life, she packs everything she owns into two bags and heads for Europe. Her plan is simple: see the world and be adventurous, don't get tied down, don't settle for less than her heart's desires, and never fall in love.

However, Alaya didn't plan for Cole Ashford.

Drawn to her love of life, Cole wants to know how to live again. For seven years he's been dead inside, and the numerous threats hanging over his head have finally caught up with him. What Cole doesn't realise is accepting Alaya's help will mean confronting every part of his tainted past. Alaya is desperate to know what haunts him, and she's so certain he'll reveal it she invents a bet he can't refuse.

One is never enough though, and as they grow closer together, the more daring their wagers become. Neither of them will back down from a challenge, but the stakes are being raised. Gambling on Cole may cost Alaya her heart, or even worse, her life.

"This book is full of suspense and the chemistry between Alaya and Cole is scorching." ~ Author Sharon Stevenson








He shook his head in despair. "I'm beginning to think I made a mistake trying to save you. You're not going to make my life easy, are you?"

I clutched my hands to my chest, giving him my best dreamy-eyed swoon. "Aww, you were trying to save me. You're so sweet! And for the record, no, I'm not going to make your life easy. But hey," I shrugged, "it was your choice. You could always save me by boxing him against the window and leaving me in peace."

"Oh really? Maybe I'll just go to the toilet instead and leave you to fend for yourself." He kicked one leg out into the aisle, moving to stand. When his body shifted, it gave me another glimpse of the greasy-haired man who watched us from the corner of his eye and reached for his bag, as if ready to pounce as soon as Hazel... uh, Cole moved.

Throwing away all self-respect, I reached out and grabbed his wrist. "No!"

He sniggered and collapsed back against the seat with a smirk. "So you do need saving."

I narrowed my eyes at him. "You're cruel."

"Sweetheart, you don't know me, remember? Don't sound so surprised."

My jaw dropped at his words and my gaze shifted nervously around the carriage. Maybe I was better off taking my chances with the other guy. I swallowed hard.

"I'm not your sweetheart."

"Would you prefer it if I called you Ice Queen or Gingernut instead? Because I didn't think those would go over as well."

Glowering at him for flipping my line back around on me, I folded my arms across my chest. I refused to rise to his teasing and ask why those names. Gingernut obviously came from the way my hair changed colour in the sun. However, Ice Queen could have been because of a number of things.

"This is the part where you're supposed to give me your name," he prompted when I didn't respond.

"You could always not talk to me. Problem solved."

"Sweetheart it is."

✾ Synopsis ✾


How much I desire him, how desperate he makes me, how much I'd like things to be different between us. Real.

He used to be my best friend back before he got married. And now? Now, he's a young widower. It would be wrong on so many levels to expect something more from him, so I give him what he needs. Dark, delicious fucking.

But I know I can't keep this up. I've already given him my body, my soul. I want him to have my heart. It might drive him away forever, but that's a risk I'm willing to take.

Wednesday is an angsty romp told from dual points of view. If you're in the mood for something quick and dirty, you've found it. Proceed at your own risk.

✿ Excerpt ✿


Once upon a time, he'd been my everything.

He was standing in the corner talking to one of her great aunts, holding an empty glass that my brother had kept filled with whiskey all afternoon. I wanted to help — to do something, anything, to take that dark, stormy look out of his eyes — so I asked him if he wanted to get some air.

He took my proffered hand without a word, but instead of leading me outside like I expected — maybe to the front porch for a breath of the cool February air — he towed me upstairs. And straight into the bathroom. Without a word, he pulled my black cashmere sweater off over my head.

I stood there shocked for a few seconds. This was Shaw — my former best friend and secret lifelong crush. The man who once held my heart in the palm of his hand when I was young and foolish. And he had just been through the most traumatic event of his twenty-six years — losing his wife to a drunk driver. Yet here he was, singularly focused on getting me naked, and seemingly as quickly as possible.

✿ Excerpt ✿


I couldn't quite make eye contact with Ethan since the last time I came back to the apartment with Owen before Thanksgiving break. We caught Ethan naked in the hallway — on a date and thinking they had the place to themselves for a night. I was no prude, but seeing junk not belonging to my boyfriend turned me three shades of red. I hadn't even seen Owen's, but I... felt it... a lot. On my leg, against my stomach, sometimes rubbing my back if he was holding me from behind. Why I was so bashful I couldn't say, especially since I didn't have a cherry to pop. But it was only one guy and only one time, shortly before he shredded my heart and then stomped all over it. Even though I couldn't make my virginity grow back, I wasn't quite ready to go there again. However, not being ready for sex had absolutely nothing to do with wanting it. Our time together always ended with a scorching kiss and groping against the nearest wall. Owen's Southern gentility was probably wearing thin these past few weeks.

"Owen? The movie starts in a half hour!" I called as I strolled down the hallway.

"Hey, City. Give me a minute, practice ran late." Owen had just stepped out of the shower and was dripping freaking wet. The V on his hips disappeared into a towel cinched around his tapered waist. Water traveled from the stray tangled locks at his neck and trickled down over his ripped chest and his abs before disappearing into the bunched up material at his waist. I licked my parched lips and tried to remember how to speak. How many damn abs did he have? Six? Eight? I was gaping at a wet, half naked Owen while the corner of the bastard's mouth turned up in a smirk. I didn't have the faculties to scowl back. My tongue didn't want to work unless it was tracing the water trails across Owen's body.

"Keep looking at me like that, baby. We won't be going anywhere tonight."
