Excerpt

“Gentleman,” Tom greeted after assembling the communication unit. “Blake sends his regards. Who wants to dance next?”

Knowing his words would reveal his location, he moved deeper into the parking lot on the other side, away from the sidewalk and farther from Amelia. He really hoped she’d been smart enough to hide in the car and not try to find him.

“Hello, son,” his father replied. “You mind telling me what the fuck you’re doing?”

John Fitzgerald using curse words brought a smile to Tom’s face. He’d thoroughly pissed off the CRF’s CEO enough that he had lost his cool over the communication channel. Nice. How far could he push him?

“Right now?” Tom asked, voice low. “I’m taking out your unit. Or did you mean in general?” A flash of metal grabbed his attention. Sentinel Charlie was in a crouch position thirty feet to his left and facing the wrong direction.

Tom shook his head. How many times had he told the man to watch his six? Idiot. He took a detour around a few cars to sneak up on his former teammate while John spoke.

“The asset is messing with your head, son. You need to come in so we can fix the issue.”

Tom suppressed a snort at that plan. Fixing the issue no doubt equated to torture and eventual death by brainwashing techniques. Because Tom was built not to break, and his father knew that better than anyone.

He slammed his pistol into the back of Charlie’s skull and sighed as the man went down. “Well, that wasn’t even any fun,” he said. “You really ought to send Charlie back to training, John. He still hasn’t mastered surveillance.”

Can I let him in?
Or will I fall again?

Synopsis

18+ only. Please note this is the second book in a series, if you haven’t read Today, Tomorrow, Forever (Book 1) this book may not make any sense.
This is the final book in this series.

‘Fate is a hoax’
‘God is a story’
‘And happy ever after really is a fairytale’

Carey
I’m a changed man. Yep that’s me. I’m drowning in the depths of despair and consumed. Consumed with the unrelenting need for revenge. There’s only so much loss a man can take and I’ve reached my quota! I’m done. I’m ready to re-unite with my baby. I just have one last job to do, the most important task I’ve ever committed myself to.
I won’t fail. I can’t fail.

Carey Cooper met and then lost, the love of his life Enola in a matter of weeks.
He wants nothing more than to be re-united with his love again but first he needs revenge.

With the help of his younger brother Carter, Enola’s father-Jack and his source Leela, he hunts for James, the person responsible for his never ending cycle of pain. He has a clear plan and is determined to carry it out. But in his haste has he chosen to trust the wrong people?
James is holed up with a parolee he met, he’s in hiding and has no intention of returning to jail- this time on a murder charge. He wants revenge too. He loved Enola and never meant for things to end the way they did, for that he blames Carey. He’s put a plan in place for Carey, to end this once and for all.
Carey teeters on the edge of sanity, he’s angry at the world and slowly losing his grip on reality.
And as he finds out, sometimes to catch a monster you first have to become one.

‘Unfortunately, underneath we all have a split personality just waiting to be set free.’

Synopsis for Can’t Fix Crazy

You know those people? You do. We all know someone like it. Those people that aren’t happy unless there is drama in their lives. Unless everyone’s attention and focus is completely and undividedly on them. The ones you roll your eyes at because they’re so obvious, so annoyingly transparent and clearly lacking some desperately needed honesty in their lives.

Yep. Those people.

But, what happens when the unreality becomes startlingly real?
What happens when you realise that you are one of them?
Compulsive liar. Check
Sympathy whore. Check
Drowning in disillusion. Double check.
I say I’m dying. They say I’m lying.
Like the little boy that cried wolf, I’m no longer believed.
But just like the lessons learned from that story – they’re about to receive an education.
A wake up call, if you like.
There’s no reasoning with crazy and they’re about to learn that the hard way.

Excerpt from The Prince’s Game

“Demanding little thing, aren’t you?” He rolled onto his side, keeping that arm tucked under his head while the other fell over his flat abdomen. “What if I want something in return?”

“Such as?”

He brushed his knuckles over my cheek and down my neck, pausing at my collarbone. “Kissing with a little light petting might encourage me to get you that phone charger sooner rather than later.”

I scooted closer, craving his intimate touch. “Upgrade light to heavy and you have yourself a deal, Mister Mershano.”

“I like the way you negotiate, Miss Summers.” His hand wrapped around my neck, and his thumb caressed the tender skin behind my ear.

“Feel free to proposition me anytime,” I whispered, his lips an inch from mine.

“Deal.”

Foster an Author 3: Get to know KA Duggsy and Lexi C. Foss

FA3 2017

Happy Monday! Welcome to the start of Foster an Author Week! I thought it would be fun to get to know K.A. Duggsy and Lexi C. Foss so I asked them both to answer a few questions. Let’s see what answers they came up with!

Name three things you never leave home without.

K.A. Duggsy: My children, keys and my phone. Super boring answer, I know but very practical.

Lexi C. Foss: My cellphone, passport and money.

Who would you include in your list of your top 3 favourite authors and your favourite books by them?

K.A. Duggsy: One would have to be Tillie Cole – she’s so versatile with her genres and yet I’m still to read a book of hers I haven’t loved, my fave of hers would be a toss up between her Hades Hangmen series or her Sweet Home series. Next is Dean Koontz, I love reading the twisted worlds he creates and the quirky characters. I read The Funhouse years ago and it played on my mind for weeks. And I can’t pick a third, I have too many top authors, so I’m going to cheat… Lauren Rowe, Samantha Towle, Jodi Ellen Malpas, Martina Cole and probably a million more I can’t think of off the top of my head.
Lexi C. Foss: Definitely Lindsay J. Pryor and Blood Shadows (note from Kim: also a fave of mine!), Keri Arthur and Full Moon Rising, and Nalani Singh’s Angels’ Blood.

Who is your celebrity crush?

K.A. Duggsy: This is quite new to me, I’ve never really had a celeb crush since I got old lol but… My daughter recently forced me to watch The Vampire Diaries with her and I got hooked. Ian Somerhalder was a huge reason why – those eyes, need I say more… yum!

If money were no object, where would you go for a month to write?

Lexi C. Foss: Iceland – It’s quiet, gorgeous and peaceful; the prefect place to write!

When and why did you first start writing and what is your favourite of the books you’ve written?

Screen Shot 2017-10-15 at 17.06.21
K.A. Duggsy: I started properly a few years ago. I’d always wanted to before then but just couldn’t seem to do it. Poems were all I was ever capable of.
I have an anxiety disorder and at times it’s awful. After a particularly bad attack, I decided I wanted to write down exactly what it felt like when in the grip of it and somehow a story ended up wrapped around it which became my first novella. From then on the ideas just kept coming.
My favourite of my books has to be my time travel romance – Advance (Advance Industries #1) it’s a genre I never thought about writing but the idea happened and it clicked – it’s also my first full-length novel. The reviews it received blew my mind.

Lexi C. Foss: I started writing in 2009, but I didn’t publish until 2017. I’ve always loved paranormal romance and urban fantasy, but wanted something a little edgier and decided to let the voices in my head come out to play. Before I knew it, I had over 500,000 words of world building for my Immortal Curse series. It came so naturally, and I loved it.

Of all the books I’ve written, I would say Blood Laws is my favorite because it was the first story I allowed others to read. Stas and Issac will always hold a special place in my heart.

What does your writing room look like (or where do you like to write)?

K.A. Duggsy:  I’d love a writing room but no such luck. Usually I’m at the kitchen table where it’s easier to re-fill my cuppa and grab snacks. A lot of times it’s whilst I’m in bed with my laptop propped on my lap and my partner begging me to stop tapping.

Lexi C. Foss: My writing room changes depending on my mood, but I usually work in my office. It gives me easy access to my bookshelves, and it’s comfortable. Sometimes I prefer to work downstairs in the living room so I can cuddle one of my dogs while I write.
