Synopsis:

 

Jackson Grady met the love of his life. Unfortunately, he was running drugs for a pimp named Sasha at the time, who asked him to keep an eye on their new acquisition from Russia, the bedraggled beauty named Portia. She touched his heart and forced him to confront the kind of man he’d become.
Now, Portia and Jackson both work at The Sugar House. He continuously looks out for her, and longs for her with his every breath, but knows he is unworthy of such an angel. What will Portia do to win not only the heart, but also the body, of the man she loves?
Welcome to the world of The Sugar House, and the men and women who will fulfill your every fantasy. But can they find a way to fulfill their own?

 



Excerpt from Protecting Portia:


The world has no place for men like Jackson, no place for the kind of man his Grams raised him to be—for heroes or gentlemen. At least that’s what he believes.
The scars radiating from his shoulder down his chest are the only physical manifestations of the damage he endured. The VA stitched him up good, discharged him with honors and sent him on his way, promising to help him find a job and follow up doctor visits that never came. No, even Afghanistan had no use for men like him.
Memories shadow over him, threatening to drag him down by the sleeves. The silence in his apartment buzzes with the cries of long dead friends. An image of Chuck lying in the sandy street of Ghazni, his arm sliced clean through, flashes through his mind’s eye.
The sticky blood sprayed across Jackson’s face, but his life marched forward as Chuck slowly died.
His heart begins to race and his temperature rises as the fight or flight response kicks in—he was always one to choose fight. He stretches his back and flexes his fingers, shaking them out to get the blood flowing again. Circulation does wonders for the human body—when it stops, that’s when everything goes to shit. 
Most of the time, he doesn’t think about the past. He occupies his nights watching Portia and making sure everyone who works for Miss Necia is safe.
He inherited the management of the security team when he took over for Donovan. A good guy, Donovan—the kind you’d value having on your side in a fight—but also the kind of guy who wore down after too many years doing work like this.
Jackson has seen too much of human nature to get any further down. He’s already seen the worst of it. What could the occasional psychopath do to him after everything he’s witnessed over the last year?
Humanity is a wasted species, taking up far too much space while killing themselves and the world around them. When pushed to the point, he finds himself unable to come up with a single reason why the human race should even continue to exist.
Thoughts like that don’t get him anywhere though, so he spends his time watching Portia. The glow of her platinum hair lends her porcelain face a halo, giving him something good and pure to focus on. He makes sure she’s safe, and keeps his love hidden away until the day she might return it.
The idea Portia could ever love him back is more than he could imagine being granted. The gods frowned on him before he ever had a chance to try. He was born into nothing, and his mama left him nothing. His Grams tried to give him a better life, but all he managed to do was bring himself back down to nothing.
And that’s all he’d ever be.

Prologue from Destiny Awaits:
 Sunlight caught the crystal that hung from the rear view mirror, and rainbow bursts of color radiated throughout the car. My parents and I had gotten up early so that we could make the three hour drive to my uncle’s house, but from the line of backed up traffic in front of us, it seemed that it would take us longer. I leaned back in my seat and let the music blaring in my earbuds help pass the time. My mother turned in her seat in the front, and I glanced at her. Seeing her mouth my name, I pulled one side of the earbuds out of my ear.
“What did you say?” I asked.
“I asked if you were hungry,” she replied. “Your father thinks that we should get off the interstate at the next exit and grab something to eat while the traffic clears up.”
“Sure, that’s fine with me. It’s a good idea, anyway, since Uncle John turned vegetarian. There’s no telling what he’s going to try to get us to eat.”
My father’s hearty laugh rumbled through the car. “Do you remember that rolled up spinach thing he tried to feed us last time?”
“How could I forget?” I said.
Mom sprung to her brother’s defense. “It wasn’t so bad.”
“Then how come you didn’t eat it? I saw you slip it to the dog when you thought nobody was watching.” My father glanced at my mother while she tried to come up with a retort.
“If you saw that, then it’s obvious that I wasn’t sneaky enough.” She crossed her arms over her chest and stared out the window.
My dad laughed as he flipped on the turn signal and merged into the right lane, coming to a stop behind a logging truck. I looked at the long logs protruding from the flatbed. “It always makes me nervous when they hang off like that,” I said. A shiver raced over my body.
“It’s okay. They make sure to load them on so that they won’t come off,” my dad reassured me.
I opened my mouth to reply, but stopped when I heard a screech of tires behind us. Turning my head, I locked eyes with the man in the driver’s seat of the truck that was hurtling toward us. The truck slammed into the back of our car, and my mother’s scream echoed in the tight space around me. A shower of white stars filled my vision as pain ripped through my shoulder and cut off my own scream. As the darkness closed in around me, I heard the faint shrill of sirens in the distance.

Book blurb and cover

Title: Changeling

Author:  Amanda Meuwissen
Genre: Gay Paranormal Romance


Nathan Grier’s dark fae bounty looms overhead. As he faces the very real threat of becoming a slave to the bounty’s owner, his brother Jim uses his changeling abilities more and more trying to save him. Every changeling throughout history turns evil once their powers manifest, meaning time may be running out for both of them as Jim nears True Awakening.
Fae hunter and incubus, Sasha Kelly, is prophesized to save Nathan, but while Nathan has embraced his feelings for the other man, he fears their time together will be cut short—either from his impending fate…or Jim’s.


Excerpt
 
“All joking and carnal intentions aside…you have been a good friend,” Sasha said soft and breathy, “and I’ve really needed that. Like you wouldn’t believe, I’ve needed that. So…whatever else might happen…I’m just thankful for you.”
The intensity of the moment—physically and deeper—struck Nathan right at the curve of his neck as his face flushed. He felt that maybe this was one of those moments where a reaffirmation of ‘I love you’ was appropriate, but something else formed on his lips instead.
“Damn you’re heavy,” Nathan breathed through a smile, gasping again when Sasha bucked his hips forward with a little more force.
“Shut up,” the incubus smirked back. He leaned in, his legs wrapping around the chair, his chest slick and smooth as Nathan pressed his palms there and slid his hands along Sasha’s skin to his back.
Sasha made Nathan’s whole mouth tingle when they kissed, that skilled tongue caressing his own so deeply, lips soft and demanding but somehow giving too. No one kissed that good, so completely and in need that Nathan felt himself drawn right into the incubus like a willing victim. He almost laughed to think that that was exactly what he was.
Nathan’s hands moved up to Sasha’s shoulder blades and down again, feeling the dip of Sasha’s lower back, and then straying lower right into the folds of the towel to caress down the smooth bare skin of Sasha’s backside. Nathan stayed only long enough to tug Sasha closer before sliding his hands up again, to which the incubus whined against Nathan’s lips.

Cover_MrX
 

Synopsis: 


*Author Note: This is not your average romance story. Some people will kill for love.*

 

He’s come to kill me.

I’m a user and abuser of my own body. In the darkest hour I sold my soul to the devil and now I must pay the price. With his gun to my head I have no choice but to listen and obey, but I refuse to go down easily. Nothing is stronger than the will to survive. My instincts kicked into full gear the second he stepped into my motel room.

Except when I look at him I see my own heart staring back at me. A history tainted by blood.

I don’t know his name, but I know he wants me. To save myself I’ll sacrifice my sanity. My body. My soul. Something tells me the x-shaped scar that marks his eye is the only escape I have. He is Mr. X; the man who comes to claim my life. Can I save myself before he demands my heart?

 

 

WARNING: This book contains very disturbing situations, dubious consent, breath depravation, strong language, drugs and alcohol, and graphic violence, which may be considered triggers. 



 

Excerpt:
 
   “Are you comfortable, little bird?” I ask, walking to the other side of
the bed.
   “Fuck you.”
   “Now, now, I thought I had already established that is not the purpose
of this intrusion.”
   “Well then what the fuck do you want from me? Are you here to watch me
do myself? Are you here to kill me? Are you going to sit there and wait until I
confess my darkest secrets to you? Or do you want me to do a little dance for
you, huh?” she muses. “Because I sure as hell have no clue why the fuck you are
in my room, trying to fucking blow my brains out!”
   I laugh and shake my head at her outburst. Grabbing her other hand, I
secure it to the bedpost and tie up her last remaining free limb. Strapping it
up nicely until she hisses from the pain, I say, “None of that.” I wink. “Or
maybe all of them.”
   “Oh, screw you! I don’t deserve any of this. What have I ever done to
you?”
   I frown, gazing down upon her. Her eyes speak the truth. “You don’t
remember, do you?”
   Her eyes widen and her lips part. It takes her a few seconds to answer.
“Remember what?”


   “Everything.”

About the Book:



Once-famous singer Anjuli Carver has returned to tiny Heaverlock Village alone and nearly broke. She’s poured every last penny into a rambling Victorian manor, hoping to start over. Trouble is, her money pit is falling to pieces and the only restoration architect for miles is Rob Douglas…her ex-fiancé.



For eight years, Rob has regretted not telling Anjuli why he never answered her letters. Being left at the altar broke his heart, but being used for sex one night in London after the fact nearly drove him to the edge of sanity, and he’ll be damned if he allows Anjuli to wreak havoc on his life again. He’ll restore her manor, all right, and give her taste of her own medicine while he’s at it.



But how long can revenge last when memories of their shared past keep rushing to the surface?



Soon, Rob wants answers. Why did Anjuli leave the international spotlight to become a recluse in the Scottish Borderlands? And why does she refuse to sing? Anjuli wants nothing more than to be left alone with her grief, even as she struggles to keep her sexy fantasies about Rob in check. With gossipy villagers, interfering friends and more secrets between them than notes on a scale, Anjuli and Rob will need to find forgiveness in order to work together, then decide if they’re willing to risk it all on an encore performance.
