 Blurb

“Enjoy
a morbidly assortment of heartache, tears, and sadness …immediately felt
connected … flow is beautiful … this book is what perfection really is!”

– Toni L.
The world sundered
and the demons arose, warring against those neither God nor Satan had wanted.
Korrigan trained most
of her life as a courtesan, submitting to the will of men.
Petre searched for
the perfect woman to break his immortal curse.
Sold to Petre in
Arcadia, Korrigan stumbled through her journey of love, treachery, and
forgiveness. Secrets and lies whispered in the dark recesses of her mind as her
past haunted her dreams.
What if all her
master taught her proved to be wrong? As the weight of her new world compounded
on her shoulders, slave and master hatched a plan to liberate the brothel and
tear down the walls.
Beyond the Brothel
Walls Saga #1
Lust ruled the
demons. Seven signs have come and gone. Sloth ruled the vampires. Seven angels
fell to the Earth. Envy ruled the courtesans. Seven Keys lay hidden amongst the
Seven Angels. Gluttony ruled the rich. Seven families rose and fell. Wrath
ruled the Horsemen. One family would bring the world to its knees. Pride ruled
the Morning Star. The Horsemen must seize the keys. Greed ruled the world.

Excerpt:
Human life held value. A virgin body attracted more wealth
than a used up hag. What my master had paid for mine, I hadn’t known. I’d been
born of unfortunate circumstance and abandoned as an infant. Like most women in
the rebuilt world, I’d existed as a slave to men. Slaves never voiced opinions
if they’d wished to live. Without an owner, I’d wilt away or fall to the harsh
conditions of the broken world.
At eighteen and on my birthday, all I’d celebrated was my
new sale. With a single suitcase grasped in my hand, I’d boarded the steam
engine, and departed Delphia for the first time in my life. My destination,
over ten hours from the Hampshire House of the Lady, lay in one of the three
surviving countries of the Sundering. Arcadia was where my new owner lived.
Hard to believe it an improvement of my situation, but rather a woman belonged
to a single man than those visiting the brothel.
“Ticket miss?” the man interrupted my daydreaming thoughts
as the door to my compartment skidded open. I fished into the pocket of my used
pea coat and handed him the crumpled documents. He whistled low as his eyes
raked over me. My skin crawled with a hundred bugs, and my stomach lurched from
the sudden jostle of the train.
“Business or pleasure?” He accentuated the pleasure. I
thanked the dim lights and hid my blush in the shadows. His hand punched my
ticket, and he marked something on his clipboard. But those eyes kept rolling
over me, and his tongue grazed his teeth.
We slowed down, and my legs itched to run for it as the
steam driven lights dimmed inside my train car. Vehicles, small ships, and some
older trains operated on the steam systems, but the tracks were older and worn
from the icy elements. Steam remained cheap; trash was by far the cheapest.
That much I’d understood from the overheard newscasts and conversations. I
shifted in my seat as the train pulled to a screeching stop on the platform.
Fancy women and groomed men waited their turn as the passengers departed.
“Business.” I forced a smile and met his glassy stare.
Women were different now; I guessed but I had no notions of
the real world beyond stolen moments of television. Even then, I hadn’t
followed much of what they’d explained. New laws had passed, revoking old rules
where men couldn’t own humans, let alone women as property. Females once
established within the governments had found themselves forced from their
positions. Even soldiers and officers found themselves without jobs, and they
became instant scapegoats. God spoke; the man on the television had believed
and blamed the rise of feminine power for the Sundering. Free men had believed
the wild banter as the upper class citizens sought a reason. There lived a rationale
for everything in life, and every wicked deed they had viewed as a punishment.
To me it was a bunch of hogwash, but it had remained the truth.
“Awful long way to travel for a young miss such as
yourself.” His eyes said what his lips hadn’t. I was alone and a slave. At
least the tinted talc hid the marks in my hair, turning the twisted mass into a
pale lilac shade. Wanton men took a glance and knew what services I offered.
Usually, I wore two thick swatches of purple streaked through my dark hair. The
unmistakable sign had announced to others that I remained pure –a prize among
the men but a whopping, fat lie. Nothing about me was wholesome anymore, and
everyone I passed knew it too.
Sure, to him I was young –small enough to pass for a child-
bundled in my coat, but I’d forgotten about the uniform. Even hidden beneath
the wool, my corset squeezed against my boney ribs and dug deeper into my
already marred flesh. Years of training allowed me to block the pain, but I
wasn’t used to the stares of strange men.
At the house, men knew better than to touch me when Jules
was there. My body had belonged to him, and he remained their boss, but I
couldn’t rely on him any longer. Instinct kicked in, and I moved away from the
man, placing my body against the wall of my compartment. I shivered, but there
wasn’t even a hairline gap between the metal barrier and me. He stepped
forward, not bothering to close the door, and my heartbeat quickened. My lungs
burned as he approached, and the scent of his aftershave nauseated my stomach.

“Excuse me,” a deep, accented voice called from the train
car’s hallway. 

 Hope to see you all there!!

Review of Bee Helpful by J.W. Edwards

I am a mom first to two beautiful boys. I chose to review this book for my 3 year old.

Review:
My son and me really enjoyed this book. It is still a bit old for him but he liked the pictures and finding items I would ask him to look for in the page. I really liked the concept of this book. I thought it was very sweet of the bee to try to get water over long distances for his friend the sunflower even though they were “different” and bees don’t help flowers. I also enjoyed the end, where the bee went through many trials but was still able to help. Its a sweet story about being willing to help a friend no matter what. If you have little ones I highly recommend this book!

HTML:
BeeHelpfulBannerBee_Helpful_webFor Sunny Bee, being truly helpful means going anywhere and everywhere. When his beautiful sunflower friend Myah becomes very ill, Sunny travels to the “far side of the hills” seeking help. Faced with a series of challenges including a raging storm, large spiders, or even the intimidating Grandfather Oak, Sunny’s dedication never wavers! (ages 4 – 8)

Behind His Eyes Convicted Release Day Event!

THE MISSING YEARS is the final piece to Aleatha Romig’s CONSEQUENCES SERIES

puzzle. Follow the twists and turns as secrets are revealed, consequences are

delivered, and the future is shown.

In CONVICTED we saw what happened that fateful afternoon at the Rawlings

Estate. Now experience the shocking repercussions firsthand. More than a

companion, this full-length novel fills in the gap of time that was only

mentioned, beginning when Claire Nichols forgets and seen through the eyes of

collective men (the HIS is plural).

In THE MISSING YEARS, readers will see Anthony Rawlings fight for what

belongs to him and cope with the reality of his past. Watch as Harrison Baldwin

discovers the truth that threatens his beliefs, and as John Vandersol comes to

terms with his revelations. Witness Phillip Roach, as he decides with whom his

loyalties lay, and Brent Simmons, as he demonstrates the meaning of

friendship—no matter the cost.

As the pieces of the puzzle fall into place, BEHIND HIS EYES CONVICTED goes

beyond. This final installment of the series offers a glimpse into the future

of the lives that will forever be changed because there was a man who…

Once upon a time, signed a napkin that he knew was

a contract. As an esteemed businessman, he forgot one very important rule—he

forgot to read the fine print. It wasn’t an acquisition to own another person

as he’d previously assumed. It was an agreement to acquire a soul.

—Aleatha Romig, CONVICTED

Review of Chartreuse by T.E. Ridener

Being from a small town this story hit close to home, it still amazes me that in 2014 people truly think this way. Rowen and Kasen had to go through a lot just to simply be together, to show their love was worth it. Rosen was patient with Kasen through it all, he allowed him to find him self as they built their relationship together. Kasen had an interesting hand dealt to him with his family, yet knows just who he is, while Rowen has been through the heart ache of finding the man he thought was his life partner in bed with some one else.
Even if you don’t think m/m books are for you, I think you should one click now. This book was gifted to me, however I enjoyed it so much I purchased a copy for my own library.

Kasen Reed was a lonely guy with hardly any friends.

Sheltered by his domineering, cynical mother, he never gained much of a social status

and he’s never known true affection. At the age of 19, he finally moves out to start his

own life and he has no idea where he’s going from here.

Rowan Kelly moved to the tiny town of Chartreuse, Alabama in hopes of starting anew. After a messy breakup that lingers over his

head, and his heart, he believes he’s finally found the perfect place to open his clinic and

do what he loves best; helping animals. Despite how picture perfect the quaint little town

seems, the 26 year old feels like something is missing…..

Two lonesome hearts will have a chance encounter in a town that doesn’t seem to be

ready for the acceptance of love equality, but will it stop them from being together?

100 % of proceeds made
