✾ Synopsis ✾


Innocence.

We're all born with it. Navigating through life as though power, privilege, and money don't rule the world. I'm guilty of it. I walked around, ignorantly thinking that the PITCREW, the most popular guys in high school, was where you wanted to be or who you wanted to date. They could have any girl they wanted, but they needed a challenge. They needed something to do to make their miserable existence exciting.

That's where I came in.

How was I to know that the one night I willingly gave away my innocence would set off a chain of events, turning my world upside down?

Now, ten years later, it's my turn to use sex, money, and lies to take from them all that they took from me... and more.

But the road to retribution has its twists and turns and I don't want to make the innocent mistake of crashing.

✿ Excerpt ✿


"Am I going to get your name tonight, beautiful?"

I laugh.

Really?

"Not interested," I state, trying not to let the seduction in his voice fool me.

"Not interested? I've never heard anyone with that name," he tries to joke, but I don't laugh.

This is the kind of shit he uses to pick up women?

"What can I getcha?" Damien asks.

I point at my glass, requesting another drink, and motion towards Casen, "On his tab."

"Budweiser for me." Casen tells him before returning his full attention back to me. "If I'm going to buy you a drink, then it's only fair you tell me your name." His leg brushes against mine, lifting my skirt and exposing more of my thigh. Goosebumps spread across my skin like wild fire and I will them down.

Stay focused, Em.

My fingers come up to play with my necklace, and I relent, "Embyr." I pick my gaze up and stare directly into his eyes. I drag them down his body, noticing the long-sleeved, black Henley he's wearing and faded jeans. His shoes are black, as well, and they look like they hold massive feet. I peek at his hands, seeing exactly what Trinity meant. They are huge.

A moment passes before he says, "Don't you want to know my name?"

I already know your name. Casen Parker. Fire fighter. Lived with your friends, my other high school bullies, Ian and Reece, up until two months ago, when you all ventured off and got your own places. Homecoming King in high school and graduated with honors in fire science.

But, I don't say all that.

"Okay, then." I roll my eyes as if the idea is beneath me. "So, what's your name?"

He stares for a moment before widening his smile. "Casen."

His cockiness pulls me in and I can't bring myself to turn away. His heated tone breaks through my barrier and a flood of emotions take over. Even though it's been ten years, he still looks the same and I feel a spark of not only hatred but attraction. I didn't expect that and it makes all of the high school memories come screaming back at me. They consume me. My chest tightens while I feel my face burning. I can't control the tremble of my hands as I pick up my glass trying to keep this panic attack under control.

I haven't had one of these since high school.

I take deep breaths, gasping for air, hoping I don't pass out. It's not working. The memories continue to suffocate me. I feel constricted.

I can't fucking breathe.

A gentle touch glides over my back and I jump at the contact. "You okay?" Casen asks concern evident in his voice.

Deep breath in. Deep breath out.

I'm finally able to lift my head and slide off of the stool, grasping my purse to my chest. "Yes. I just..." I stumble. "I need a moment."

I race to the bathroom, knowing full well I am fucking this up. I've managed to screw Patrick and Thad over no problem. So what is so different that, just speaking to Casen twice in the past week, has me turned inside out? The bathroom door slams against the tiled wall when I barge in and lock myself inside. My forehead meets the cold metal of the door as I chastise myself.

Get your shit together, Embyr.

You hate him.

He didn't stop them.

He repulses you.

I repeat this over and over until I believe what I'm saying. It takes a few minutes, but I gather myself and hold my head up high as I stride back to the bar, shoulders straight, like I didn't just fall apart in front of my prey. When I turn the corner, I see Casen looking down at his phone typing furiously, and I pray I didn't lose him. I'll be pissed if I screwed it all up by letting his good looks and charm suck me in at a vulnerable moment.

✾ Synopsis ✾


The first time I met Chase Parker, I didn't exactly make a good impression.
I was hiding in the bathroom hallway of a restaurant, leaving a message for my best friend to save me from my awful date.
He overheard and told me I was a bitch, then proceeded to offer me some dating advice.
So I told him to mind his own damn business — his own tall, gorgeous, full-of-himself damn business — and went back to my miserable date.
When he walked by my table, he smirked, and I watched his arrogant, sexy ass walk back to his date.
I couldn't help but sneak hidden glances at the condescending jerk on the other side of the room. Of course, he caught me on more than one occasion, and winked.
When the gorgeous stranger and his equally hot date suddenly appeared at our table, I thought he was going to rat me out.
But instead, he pretended we knew each other and joined us — telling elaborate, embarrassing stories about our fake childhood.
My date suddenly went from boring to bizarrely exciting.
When it was over and we parted ways, I thought about him more than I would ever admit, even though I knew I'd never see him again.
I mean, what were the chances I'd run into him again in a city with eight million people?
Then again...
What were the chances a month later he'd wind up being my new sexy boss?

Beast
Heroes Ever After #1
by
Alana Albertson

Publication Date: March 22, 2016

Genres: Contemporary Romance, New Adult





✾ Synopsis ✾


Wanted: Beautiful woman to be the mistress of my manor. Must be single. No sex required, dynamic conversation imperative. Salary $100,000 for a one-month contract.

A viral post. Thousands of women applied — including me. I told myself I was crazy, but the money could pay for my father's medical treatments and save his life.

A month later, I received the call.

I'd been chosen.

A man with a mask greeted me, and though he filled my days with a library full of books, and dressed me in the finest clothes, he never shed his cover nor touched me intimately, despite my growing hunger for him.

He was equal parts Iron Man, Phantom of the Opera, and Beauty's Beast. But he wasn't a superhero, the tragic villain of a novel turned musical, or the cursed creature of a fairy tale.

This former Marine was trapped in his own nightmare — demons from the war he had fought in haunted his thoughts, scars from the bomb he jumped on marked his skin.

True love could free him from his self-imposed prison, but he'd have to let me in. Opening the door to his cabin was the easy part, but the real test would be allowing me into his heart.

Otherwise, he would always remain a beast.

✿ Excerpt ✿


Isa

Guilt from my initial reaction to his injuries tormented me.

At first I was determined not to stare at his face, horrified that he'd be insulted by my reaction. But the second his face came into focus, I held back a sob, and a lump grew in my throat.

The right side of his face was mangled, taut raw flesh accented with blue and red scars. His jaw was uneven, and his right eyelid slumped, filled with what must've been a glass eye. The remnant of his ear was dappled and twisted. But the other half of his face was clean-shaven, handsome and rugged — a bright turquoise eye, strong chin, black hair shorn in a Marine Corps high and tight haircut.

Flashes filled my brain, stored images I must've retained from newsreels and graphic war movies. Had it been a roadside bomb? An outmanned firefight? Some type of chemical attack? I wouldn't ask him. For now, I was content with the trust he had shown me by unveiling his scars.

"I guess I should've gone to the party as Two-Face," he said, his voice somber.

"No, you're beautiful. You make a sexy Hulk." I caressed his face, my fingers tracing its divots. "Plus, then you'd be DC, and I'd be Marvel. We would've never had a chance."

He let out a small laugh, but flinched at my touch. "You've seen me now. You're free to go."

This was my chance to end this night safely and in control.

Or I could get wild — do what I'd only ever read about in my books.

Cut loose.

I'd always admired those women who owned their sexuality, like Marisol. Indulged in pleasure without any guilt or shame. I wondered what it would be like to live in the moment.

I was picky, but I still had needs, and right now I needed some action — and sadly these days the warm glow from my eReader was about the closest that I felt to having any heat radiating on my body. But even the artificial afterglow of one hot night with my latest romance hero did little to warm my heart. After all, I hadn't hooked up with a guy since winter break. I missed everything about being around men — their masculine scents, their non-subtle eye fucks, their rough hands. At least my book boyfriends were gorgeous, witty, and incredible lovers — but most importantly, they wanted more from their heroines than just a one-night stand.

And I was sure this man wasn't looking for anything more than a hookup.

Isa, put on your clothes and get the hell out of here. This is not you. You are responsible, conservative, and goal-oriented.

Faced with the opportunity to indulge in my fantasy of hot, wild sex with a hunky alpha male, I had to admit that the reality of the situation made me realize how rigid I'd always been.

But somewhere deep in my soul I wanted to lose myself in this damaged man, give him pleasure to alleviate his pain, experience ecstasy and release.

And maybe he could heal me too.

The heat between us rose, and I erased the distance between us, like two magnets being drawn together.

I traced his face with my fingers, running the tips over his lips. Rough, wild, and dangerous. As he remained still, my hands explored his incredible body—rock-hard muscles, deeply embedded scars, and intricate ink. All making him look like the sexiest badass alive.

He bit his bottom lip, his pupil dilated.

Hungry.

Ravenous.

Intense.

His chest heaved, and the sight of this raw, ferocious man before me sent a shock between my legs. I ached for him to relieve the tension that consumed my body.

I pressed my palm onto his chest, the green body paint staining my hand. "I want to stay. I want you."

Damn, did I just say that? My words betrayed my will.

The left side of his mouth widened into a grin, although his right side remained frozen in time. With one arm, he clutched my ass and wrapped my legs around his waist. I gasped as his mouth covered mine. His lips were neither soft nor sweet — they were hard and hungry. The length of his cock and the hair on his chest let me know that, unlike my previous boyish lovers, I was about to be fucked by a real man.

There was no turning back. I needed this Marine inside me in the worst way.

His kisses were out of control. I'd never been kissed like this before, like I was an oasis in the middle of the desert. His mouth tasted minty and hot, and his manliness intoxicated me. He awoke a latent desire in me, summoning my inner wildcat. I kissed him back, kissed him everywhere. His mouth, his lips, his neck, his scars. My hands explored his insanely ripped body, stroking him like he was my personal sex toy. I gripped his hair and dug my nails into his back, kneading him closer to me, never wanting to let him go.

I'd always been the good girl, living vicariously through my friends' hookups, only indulging in my fantasies in the safety of my mind. Whether it was from a place of fear or control, I had never allowed myself to fulfill my desires. But tonight, with this nameless sex god in my grasp, I made a silent vow to not hold anything back. I was going to let him fuck me like it was the last night of the world.

✿ Excerpt ✿


After Talmadge's colossal gaffe yesterday at Joe's, the chances of Miranda letting him take over the renovations at the inn were about as good as her contractor giving back her money.

The way he saw it, he had two options.

One: play the I'm-your-creditor card and take charge of the renovations whether she agreed or not. When it came to any kind of building project, everyone followed his lead. Hell, he'd earned that leadership roll in world of architecture.

Miranda's face glowed red with anger.

Right. Option one wasn't working out so well.

He shifted to option two: make her think she was still in charge.

"Don't be foolish, Miranda. You need help with this place." Talmadge was trying real hard to keep his mind and eyes off the taut nipples showing through her thin shirt. The moment he'd turned and saw her standing in the dining room staring at him with sleepy eyes and messy pillow hair... glaring at all of them over the absurdity of superheroes while wearing silly cartoon pajamas... Well, hell. His throat had closed up, and he'd wanted to toss her over his shoulder and take her to back to bed. This time with him in it too.
