The Initiation Teaser 3

EXCERPT
We were all related to monsters.
All heir to corrupt kingdoms.
Forced to uphold some delusion that we are doing God’s will by ridding the world of the bad
people when we should be included in that kind of purge.
“It’s down to the right. There’s a bunker. That’s where they keep the sacrifices,” I was finally
tired of wondering around when I knew exactly where to go.
I found them by mistake one year when I was ten, back when inviting your whole family was
more common. They expected everyone to be present even if you weren’t weilding a musket and
shooting real people down.
The four of us used to play hide and seek on the grounds just to keep ourselves entertained.
I always had the best hiding places, this was our vacation home when it wasn’t being used for some
ceremony the Clave hosted.
I was ten years old when I found people in cages in the bunker we were told to stay away
from. They were all dugged, out of it like they were dreaming with their eyes open. I envied them.
Dreaming with your eyes wide open seemed like the perfect antidote to life, too bad that kind of
safety only came before you died.
It wasn’t until my first attendance I realized these people weren’t lucky at all. They were
bait, aggression running wild, enemies of the Clave that we hunted for sport.
None of them were going to survive – the least we could do was let them dream with their
eyes wide open.

really just wavy lines filling the paper, but she knew each word, each emotion, each character's
name, and there was no tricking her into forgetting what each line signified. Just like her
unconventional way of writing as a toddler Elena is setting her own rules and just telling stories.
Much like her debut novel, The Best Years, life certainly imitated art. Transplanting from the South

Poe Halliday was an accident. A chance meeting that changed my life forever.

My mother didn’t have secrets; her secrets had her. After she disappeared, I had nothing.
Or so I thought.

When the invitation arrived, the opportunity to learn about my mother’s past was too great to pass up. Heading west to meet an aunt I had never heard of, I knew I was taking a risk, but I craved answers. Instead, I ended up with more questions, and now the dark history of this town threatens to tear me apart.

It’s all about him.

I knew this was a mistake.

Stella Bradleigh was a distraction. Something to play with when my shadows got too dark.

I spent my entire existence forced to live a life I didn’t want. There was only one way out.
Or so I thought.

When she arrived, none of us had any idea what it meant. Meeting the beautiful stranger with the mysterious past, I thought she would be a good time, and then I could just throw her away like all the others. Instead, she consumed me, and now she’s made me question everything I know to be real in my life.

It’s all about her.

I knew I was a mistake.

Sometimes what seems most fragile can’t be broken.

 Folkestone Sins is a series of interconnected duets.  Fragile Things is the first book in Stella and Poe’s duet, and the first book in the series. This is a dark, mature high school/new adult romance. It contains situations and flashbacks that may trigger some readers, language that may be offensive, and scenes of a sexual nature (all consensual).  Recommended for 18+ only

ALSO COMING SOON IN THE FOLKESTONE SINS SERIES

BLURB

Here’s the 411 about high school—well, at least for my high school, Clintwood Academy.

  1. It’s a fucking warzone.
  2. Everyone has a grudge against someone else.
  3. It’s the breeding ground for losers, jealous broken-hearted girls and acne covered fools with zero game.
  4. The disgustingly rich kids are vile, vindictive, popular and the mecca of a social life worth a damn.
  5. Lastly, high school is simply, survival of the fittest.

And I was the fittest of them all. Once.

Once before I was set up to take the fall for an attempted murder of one of the Fitz brothers, the golden boys of St. Jude High, our sworn rival enemy.

Before I was played for a kiss and it worked.

Now, the Fitz brothers hate me.

They suspect me.

They want to destroy me.

They know everything about me, and I hate them for it.

And now, we’ll all be living together, like one big, happy step-family. With secrets brimming, hatred festering, and other feelings I have no business having for my step-cousin-brothers or whatever, haunting me night and day.

Now, let’s kiss and be forever rivals…

The Devil Wears Black, a second-chance romance about love, loss, finding yourself, and getting lost in the right person from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen is coming March 9th 2021, and we have the beautiful cover!

Shen-The Devil Wears Black-29636-FT-V7

Maddie Goldbloom stitched up a plan to ensure everything in her life was perfect—from a career in fashion to a chic NYC apartment to a pediatrician boyfriend.
When her ex, Chase Black, storms back into her life with an outrageous request, her immediate reaction is to refuse him. But he only wants to fulfill his father’s last wish. So even though he’s the man who broke her heart, playing his fiancée shouldn’t be hard, especially if it means she gets to watch the arrogant devil squirm a bit.
What ensues is a chain of events that detonates Maddie’s life—and when Chase’s walls come down, they both are forced to face reality.
They say keep your enemies close. But what if your enemy is also the man you love?

Excerpt

I rinse my mouth at the sink and see my tongue is still in one piece and has stopped bleeding. Turning to look at the others, part of me that has been empty for so long fills with the glow of friendship being offered.
All of a sudden, the bathroom door slams open, connecting solidly with the wall behind it and making us all jump. Expecting to see Hali ready to stab me in the face with her lunch fork, I’m utterly shocked when Poe strides angrily into the room.
“Ladies,” he growls. “Out. Now.” He locks his predatory gaze with mine. “Not you, Bradleigh. You stay.”
“Dude, you know this is the girls’ bathroom, right?” Sunday follows her question with a pointed look at Poe’s crotch.
“I’m aware. I also don’t care. Need to have a few words with your girl here.”

As the son of the infamous boss of the DeAngelo family, I have merciless duties expected of me. The public labels me a monster, a man without a soul, and one hated by many.

When my father orders me to marry a longtime enemy’s daughter to settle a score between our families, she did what any smart woman with a beating heart would do.

So, I found her.
She tries to negotiate for her freedom, but despite being inexplicably drawn to the deviant woman, I refuse her pitiful bribes with pleasure.
I still have a job to do, and I’ll make her tell me her family’s secrets, turning a treacherous situation into a game of hatred.

“I only hurt those that karma missed. Respect is earned and so is the calling of the Reaper.”

Beautiful Criminal by M.N Forgy is the first book in a new Mafia Series by this author.

Kieran is a made-man, he’s heartless and ruthless to those who know him.

A good start to a new series.

Girls like me, we know how to survive.

We each have our own little ways, but we acquire those skills at the same tender age.

If you ask me how many times a person can die, I’ll tell you many times. As many times as a man stabs you in the stomach with betrayal and wrings out your heart with lies.

Girls like me, we live.

We don’t get a choice.

We step over the cliff and fall.

Eat, sleep, die, and repeat.

Ashley’s Review
Diamonds in the Rough is Book 2 in the Diamonds are Forever Trilogy and lets just say this story packed a punch!

Charmaine continues to elevate this series with this book. I’ve never went from loving a character to loathing one as much as I did Maxime. That right there is true writing craft! I was absolutely appalled by his actions yet still want his character redeemed.

This story picks up where Diamonds in the Dust left off. This story was completely mesmerizing and I read it within 4 hours. I literally couldn’t put it down!

Great storyline. Excellent character development. Huge revelations and twists. Cliffhanger.

This book is was fantastic and I highly recommend it!!

5 stars!!!
