Release Date: March 17, 2015

✾ Synopsis ✾

"Some boys can get rough, some don't always listen when you tell them to stop, and some boys, they're just monsters. You gotta be careful who you play with..." ~ Jax Declan

I'm a tease, always have been. In my teens, Jax Declan tried to warn me about staying away from the bad boys. The only boy I ever wanted was Jax. But, no matter how much I tried to play with him, he rejected me.

I haven't see Jax Declan in years. A couple friends and I are going back to the Bayou for the summer. A little older now, and a bit wiser, I've decided that I'm going to find my teenage crush and I'm going to break him. This summer Jax Declan will play with me.

But the closer I get and the more I learn about the reserved, discreet, and sexy Jax Declan. Well, I'm starting to think that Jax Declan might just be one of those bad boys he tried to warn me about all those years ago.

✿ Excerpt ✿


I slip a trembling hand inside her shirt, move it up her soft belly, and reach her lacy bra. A moan escapes her lips, and I deepen the kiss. Pulling the lace out of my way, my knuckles scrape across a small bead. My heart beats recklessly beneath my own shirt. I find her nipple again, that perfect little tight bead, and squeeze it between my fingers. She whimpers against my mouth. I pinch harder. Fuck. I want to grip hold of it with my teeth.

Too anxious, I slide my hand down into her pants. The tight elastic waistband presses on my forearm, forbidding my entrance, but I'm gettin' in there. I feel her wetness on the tips of my fingers. My heart beats faster. My finger follows all that wetness and fuck, it slips right into her softness. Damn, it's so tight in there, so amazingly snug and warm. Man. I gotta get into that sweet, tight place. I pull out and thrust back in. Her hips move with my probing finger. A groan reels from me. Not breaking from the kiss, I pull my hand out, grab her pants, and start to yank them down.

"No," she breathes over my mouth.

The blood in my veins pumps hard, pulsating and thrashing beneath my heated flesh. I neglect the sounds she's making and strip her panties off. Her ripe pussy glistens beneath all that wetness. Fuck, it's making my dick hurt so bad.

"No." She pushes me.

Breaths rapid and shallow, I struggle to undo my pants.

"Stop." She hits me in the chest.

I pull my dick free from my jeans. I've waited and waited. She's made me wait. She said tonight. I could have her tonight. Blinded by the uncontrollable need to have her, I crawl over her fraught body. Afraid I'm going to blow my load before my dick can make it inside. I grab it. She slaps me, striking me across the face. My dick gets harder. I guide myself to her opening.

"No! Stop!" she screams. Loud!

That's when I snap out of it and look up.

That's when I see it so alive in her eyes.

It rushes all through me.

I can taste, smell, and feel... her fear.



"So ladies," I walk over with the wine glasses, "what should we do this summer?"

Rayna takes her glass from me and lifts it. "I say we eat and drink as much as we want. We'll make it our goal to gain no less than ten pounds this summer."

"No way." Lurlene shakes a full head of dark copper hair as she captures the glass from my hand. "I just lost twenty pounds. It took me six months. Now, when I wear my skinny jeans, it doesn't look like someone forgot to stop pouring me into them. I had to eat a salad, and I mean just lettuce, so I could afford the calories I plan to consume with you ladies tonight. Sorry," she scrunches her freckled nose, "you're going to have to come up with something else."

"Yeah. Bad idea, Rayna." I retrieve my glass of wine from the counter and enter the living room. "I know you're exiting a long-term relationship and all. You might want to kick your heels up for a couple months," I slumber into the sofa next to Lurlene and peer down at Rayna sitting on the floor, "but I'm looking to get laid his summer."

"You're always lookin' to get laid." Rayna takes a sip of her wine. "And ten pounds wouldn't put a dent in that body of yours."

"It's my metabolism." I flip a hand in the air. "It kicks ass."

"Yeah, she gets her perfect figure from her mother and me," Lurlene smirks. "People think I work at the damn gym. If anyone needs to get laid, it's me."

My eyes flash to Lurlene. "I thought you were saving yourself for the one?"

"Heck, I'm twenty-five, and there's not a single prospect within miles. I'm never going to find love." Lurlene shrugs. "I'm reconsidering."

Rayna props up on her knees, and her dark long strands swing forward. "Hey, I've got an idea."

Oh, here we go. We're definitely in trouble whenever Rayna gets that look in those sly-green eyes.

"You know my sister still has her place in the Bayou? Well, she hasn't used it in a few years, busy with the fam, kids, and shit. We could go there for the summer. I'm between jobs, Emmie, you can do your job from anywhere, and Lurlene, you lucky bitch, you don't have to be anywhere until the kiddos go back to school in the fall. What do you think?"

"I don't know. I haven't been back to the Bayou in years," I say.

"It's been six for me. But we could meet up with friends, hang out at all the old stomping grounds, build fires, and get drunk all summer long."

"Yeah, and we could also run into the Declan brothers," I say with a tight smile.

"The Declan brothers?" Lurlene glances back and forth between Rayna and me. She's not from the Bayou.

"Jax, Zeke, and," I lean toward Rayna, "Slate."

"I'm so over him," she waves a hand at me and takes a sip of her wine. "What?" She sets the glass down. "Like I said, it's been six years."

"What's up with Slate," Lurlene asks.

"Rayna dated him all through high school. There was even talk of marriage."

"It was first love shit. And I got no problem seeing Slate Declan again. What about you?"

"What about me?"

"Jax Declan?"

"I never did anything with Jax Declan!"

"But you wanted to," Rayna smirks.

"Never," I outright lie.

"What about Zeke," Rayna glances over at Lurlene, "he's the player of plays. And he's so fucking hot. Too bad the asshole knows it."

"And that's why I never touched him, either," I say, now speaking from truth. "Way too many hands grabbing on that pole."

"I hear he has an exceptional pole. But then again, so did Slate. I can only assume Jax does, too." She drops back down onto the floor. "Do you think Jax is gay?"

"Oh my God, I never consider it, but ya know," I grimace, "he might be. I've never seen him with a girl, much less heard of him dating anyone." And God knows I tried to get that guy to notice me, but he ignored all my advances. "Who knows, if we did go back there we could find the Declan brothers all married with a new herd of little Declans saddling up to wreak havoc in the Bayou."

"I say we check it out. Let's do it, let's wreak a little havoc of our own." Rayna grins.

"I'd love to have another go at it with Jax." I bite my lip, again the truth. "Ya know, to see if I could break him, find out if he's into the same sex or not."

"Uh-huh." Rayna's grin widens. "And I, just by being there, could break Slate's heart like he kinda did mine. And you," Rayna looks at Lurlene. "You could get that cherry of yours popped by the best damn lay in the Bayou, and you could break every one of Zeke Declan's rules, too."

"Rules?" Lurlene's brows draw together.

"Yeah," Rayna lifts a finger. "Rule number one; don't call him, he'll call you," she raises another finger, "two; he doesn't date, three; no sleepovers, and rule number four," Rayna looks at me wiggling four long digits, "absolutely no virgins."

"And," I turn to Lurlene, "if you don't agree, understand, and follow those rules, he refuses to sleep with you," I say, holding back my laughter from the appalled look on Lurlene's face.

"You're just his type, and you have experience with refusing men so you could give Zeke Declan a real good run for his booty call." Rayna's eyebrows wiggle.

"His type," Lurlene says.

"Remember, Emmie, what was her name?" Rayna snaps her fingers. "Shit. Luna Featherhouse. That's it. Oh, Zeke fell head over heels for her, but she wouldn't give his cocky ass the time of day. Drove him insane. With our help, Lurlene could do it. She could get laid, and break Zeke, along with every one of his damn rules."

"Wait," Lurlene says, shaking her hands. "He really has rules, and girls agree to them just so they can have sex with this guy?" Rayna and I nod our heads. "And neither of you—"

"Eww!" Rayna's body shakes with the heebie-jeebies. "God, no! I dated his brother, and Emmie, although she's trying to deny it, only ever had eyes for Jax. So, what do you say?"

I roll my only-eyes-for-Jax-Declan at Rayna. "You're absolutely crazy. Besides, there's a good chance we'd get there and the Declan brothers are indeed all married."

"But if they're not, that could be our goal this summer." Rayna picks up her wine glass in cheer. "To breaking the Declan brothers."

♡ Excerpt Reveal ♡ Third Debt (Indebted #4) by Pepper Winters @PepperWinters @RSofRomance

I MEANT WHAT I said before.

I meant it with every bone in my body.

Someone has to die.

I still stood by that conclusion. Only, I'd hoped it wouldn't be me.

Too bad wishes never come true.

I'd always wondered what it would feel like. How I would react, knowing that I'd failed. I'd lain awake so many nights trying to imagine how I would behave when my father finally had enough. I'd scared myself shitless fearing I wouldn't be strong enough, brave enough, to face the consequences I'd lived with all my life.

But none of that mattered now. I'd done what I swore never to do and revealed myself. My father knew there was no changing me — he would come for me.

But so fucking what?

She's safe.

That was all I needed to focus on.

I'd done my utmost to be the perfect son, but I'd been fighting an unwinnable battle. No matter how much I wished I could be like them — I wasn't. And it was pointless to keep fighting.

Not anymore. I'm done.

Gazing around the room, I searched for Daniel. My father and mother were busy talking to Mr. and Mrs. Stowe along with two other couples, whom I didn't have the pleasure of knowing. A young gentleman had been talking my ear off and I was in desperate need of fresh air.

Turning to him, I asked, "Will you please excuse me? I am in need of some fresh air."

"Shall I join you?" he asked.

I quickly shook my head. "No. No, that will not be necessary. I have a slight headache and need some time alone."

Nodding his head, he smiled and took a step back, giving me a quick bow. Returning the polite gesture, I began toward the kitchen. One look over my shoulder showed my mother watching me intently. I'm sure she was distressed at the idea of me wandering off and being late to sit down for dinner.

Somehow managing to find my way to the back gardens, I smiled and inhaled a deep breath. All I smelled were azaleas. I walked along the cobblestone pathway that intertwined among Magnolia trees and some of the most amazing flowers I'd ever seen. My mother would be green with envy were she to lay her eyes upon this colorful garden.

"It goes on forever," I whispered.

"One can easily get lost back here."

I stopped the moment I heard his voice. Closing my eyes, I placed my gloved hands on my stomach to calm the butterflies. Inhaling a deep breath through my nose, I slowly blew it out as I turned to face him.

Daniel. His eyes widened and he licked his lips. I raised the corner of my mouth and bowed slightly. Daniel walked up to me and smiled, causing my knees to shake. For a moment, it felt as if the earth was moving and I fought to stand upright.

He took a step closer to me as his eyes moved about my face. When they landed on my lips, I instinctively licked them. His eyes were ablaze with fire. I took a step back as he took another step forward. My breathing increased as I felt something I'd never felt before.

✾ Synopsis ✾

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. ~ Newton's Third Law of Motion

Brandon "Brand" Carmichael's life was the stuff dreams were made of…too bad it was an illusion. As a guitarist for Inert Motion, Brand traveled the world, performing with his brothers in all but blood. He never stopped moving all the while his mind played in a never ending loop. Now outside influences have changed the band’s course, leaving Brand’s life void of the balance he craved. Once again, his dream had become a recurring nightmare. Brand coped the only way he knew how; retreat into solitude.

Magdalena “Layna” Delacroix had achieved the long sought goal of her Ph.D. in Psychology, but success came at a high cost: over one hundred thousand dollars in debt. After being presented with the opportunity to fulfill her desire to help someone in the aftermath of tragedy, along with earning enough money to clear her debt and start a psychology practice of her own, Layna had to balance the means against the outcome. Could she be the force to stop the downward spiral of someone who refused to seek help?

Neither Brand nor Layna expected the reaction they had to one another. It was the opposite of everything they sought.

Could Layna live a lie while pushing Brand to live in the truth?

Would Brand forgive her for committing one unforgivable sin?

Or was he branded by destiny to be...

✿ Excerpt ✿

"Sometimes I get in the zone and everything else gets tuned out. I forget to eat and sleep, or even what day it is. Things just blur together when I'm focusing. It's like my mind can only devote itself to the creative. And I had a disagreement with my brother, which didn’t help matters."

"Oh, do y'all fight a lot?" she asked while continuing to chow down on her syrup with a side of waffles. "My siblings and I fought all the time growing up, but now that we're older, we get along much better, as long as we don't have to share a room or a bathroom."

"Not so much anymore. We did when we were younger. Then we didn't talk for a long time." My truth-telling danced a fine line. One conversation with my mom about Barrett and me having contact and everything would come crashing down. I loved my parents, but I couldn't let go of Barrett again, not even for them."

"What made you, or him, get back in touch after not talking for such a long time?"

"Umm, well, uhh, I guess somewhere around the time Bow and Danelle got married, the dynamic of the band started changing. There was just a lot going on; Joker and Ruff stopped trying to kill each other and started fuc—dating each other, and then Touch met Kaitlyn and all of their shit went down, and I realized that even though my band had been my surrogate family for years, I needed my real family, my blood and my best friend since the beginning. So I began trying to reach out to Barrett, and one day, he responded.

"It's been nice catching up with him and talking about all the things I've done with the band and stuff. He kept track of it all. We talk pretty much every day now, except when he's pissed at me."

"Does he ever come to visit? Maybe I'll get a chance to meet him while I'm here. If he's half as pushy as you are, I might like him," she claimed with a smile, but panic rose inside me. Not because she thought I was pushy or she might like him better — Barrett and I had never been the type to compete or fight over a girl — but she wanted to meet him. Total no-go situation.

"Yeah, he probably won't make it anytime soon. He's got other obligations right now. But, uhh, but I need you to promise me you won’t tell my parents or your mom about Barrett." My hands clinched the hard bench seat and my legs bounced up and down nervously. I didn't know why I couldn't keep my mouth shut around her, or just stay the fuck away from her.

"Why's that?" By now, she'd stopped eating and was focusing on me, studying me, looking at me as if she could see the thoughts ripping through my head like a natural disaster in the making.

"They don't talk to each other. My parents have, uhh, they have a different view of Barrett. He doesn't want contact with them, and it's just easier for everyone if they don't know he's talking to me. I don't want to hurt them."

"Do you think you could help them heal their rift before it's too late and it can't be fixed?"

"It's already too late. The only thing I can do is try to salvage what I have left and not cause any more damage or harm or pain to anyone else." I stopped and thought for a moment before I said anything else. "I shouldn't have even told you; something about you makes you easy to talk to. But I need you to promise me that you aren't going to repeat the things we talk about or that you see to my mom, your mom, or anyone else for that matter. If you can't do that, we can't be friends, or even friendly neighbors."

Layna looked me directly in the eye. I'd always heard a person's soul and true intentions show through the eyes, telling you if their intentions were good or bad. The look in Layna's eyes told me her intentions were good.

"Brand, I promise I won't repeat the things you tell me or that I see to your parents or mine."

I took her promise at face value. What I should have remembered was the saying about good intentions and the road to hell being paved with them. I knew all about good intentions, and I knew all about hell. I’d lived in my own personal tormented version of hell for over a decade.

One day some words came to mind, so I wrote them down. Soon the words became sentences, which formed paragraphs, which, in turn, formed chapters. Before long, those few words had become a book.

When I'm not reading or writing, I'm a wife, mother, and business owner. I've lived on both coast and few places in between, but as born and raised Southern girl, I'll always believe there's no place like home...
