REALITY IS NOT A FAIRYTALE. CAN A VICTIM OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING HAVE A HAPPY ENDING AFTER YEARS OF ABUSE AND DEGRADATION? ESPECIALLY WHEN HER ONLY FOCUS IS GETTING PAYBACK…

At eighteen, Yoko Hirano falls into the tentacles of a human trafficking organization and is forced into prostitution.

Four years later she meets the tall, dark and charming antiques dealer Mark Chandler. They both acknowledge the complicated chemistry between them, but Yoko’s grand scheme of things doesn’t involve falling in love, nor does she think Mark would want her if he found out about her past.

Monday Teaser: THE DIARY

lips

Hello, friends and fellow book lovers! I hope your week started as well as mine, because today I finally began writing again, after a pause of several months. The novel I’m working on is a complex thriller, probably the first in a series. And speaking of series, I have taken another important decision, based on the wonderful reviews and emails I have received from readers regarding my novel, THE DIARY: I have decided to continue Hunter and Serena’s adventures, and write an entire series featuring these amazing characters! I’m not revealing more at the moment, but I promise 2018 will be a year full of surprises. 😉

For those of you who haven’t already read THE DIARY, this is the blurb:

In the legendary Transylvania, a castle belonging to Countess Erzsébet Báthory is discovered. Cameraman Hunter Cole and broadcast journalist Serena Scott arrive to make a documentary about the discovery, and the sinister Hungarian noblewoman, known as the most prolific female serial killer in history. 
The two Americans could cope with roughing it in a fifteenth-century castle, with no modern amenities. They can even cope with each other, despite their initial mutual dislike for one another, which gradually turns into a mind-blowing attraction. The Diary Cover
But when two girls are tortured and killed in Báthory copycat style, the nearby village is shaken to the core. In terror, they wonder who will be next…

Author’s Note

Erzsébet Báthory (1560-1614) is a known historical figure and was a Hungarian countess, also known as Elizabeth Báthory, The Blood Countess or Countess Dracula. She has been labeled the most prolific serial killer in history, being responsible for the torture and murder of hundreds of young girls. The exact number of her victims is unknown, but is estimated at six hundred and fifty. It is speculated that she kept a diary with the names of all her victims, but if such a document exists, it has never been made public.
*This work is entirely fiction.

EXCERPT from THE DIARY

There are certain dreams where one knows that one’s dreaming. Those dreams where one can even choose and control what happens in the dream—the chances of actually fulfilling some of the fantasies each of us have.
Then there are the true nightmares, which seem more real than any reality one has ever known. The kind of dreams that swallow you whole, consume you, enslave your mind and bend it to their own illusory will.
The girl lay on the table in the torture room, her cuffed hands and feet struggling weakly, rattling the rusted chains. Her body was a mass of wounds, cuts and burns. Blood had clotted in rivulets all over her flesh. She didn’t have the strength to scream anymore, just whimpered pitifully from time to time. I stood helpless in the doorway, unable to move or to utter a sound, feeling trapped in my own terrified body.
The Countess stood looking down at Romelia, eyes glinting with cold-blooded madness, just like the knife she used to caress the girl’s naked body. Her splendid silk gown was the same color as the blood staining the blade. Her hair was piled up high, exposing the milky white, graceful curve of her neck. Her beauty was staggering, but poisonous—the beauty a demon is gifted to lure the innocent to their destruction.
Her red lips stretched into a wicked smile as she ran her finger over one of the girl’s wounds and lifted it to her mouth. When her eyes met mine, I looked into the abyss of evil, as paralyzed as the victim of a snake that mesmerizes its pray.
“It’s not only their blood I need,” she said in a low, sultry voice that chilled my bones to the depths. “I need their fear, their cries. I want to test their pain endurance. It’s fascinating how long they last, some of them. Others are a disappointment.” She shrugged her elegant shoulders. “Their minds just shut down. Their eyes become dull, even duller than they usually are.”
She grabbed the girl’s hair and lifted her head, putting her face close to the young woman’s.
“Wake up!” she shouted, but then let the head drop in disgust when she got no reaction. She sighed.
“This one is gone. Better end it. It’s no fun anymore.”
So saying, she put the knife to the girl’s throat and pressed the sharp edge into the soft flesh, bit by bit, as though cutting into a loaf of bread. When the girl’s body began to convulse and her blood gushed, my own scream seemed to tear me apart from the inside.

“Serena, wake up!”
“No, please, don’t! I beg you, don’t do this!”
“Baby, it was just a dream. Wake up now!”
My eyes were open, but I couldn’t see anything. I only heard Hunter’s voice through the ragged sound of my breathing. He was shaking me, murmuring words I could barely understand over the mad thumping of my heart.
“You were only dreaming,” he said again, taking my face between his hands and staring into my eyes. “It was just a nightmare. It’s gone now, do you understand? Look at me.”
Gradually, I brought his face into focus, concentrating on taking slow, deep breaths that cleared my head. When I nodded, he lowered his forehead over mine for a long moment.
“You know, being awakened by your screams in the middle of the night is going to make my hair gray prematurely.”
Though he tried to sound amused, I could hear the worry in his voice. I stifled a sob.
“I’m sorry, Hunter, I couldn’t help it. It was awful, the dream…”
I closed my eyes, unable to fight the shudder that shook me. He noticed and, drawing the sheet aside, pulled me onto his lap, rocking me gently like a child as he held me tight in his arms.
“I know, baby, I know. I was just kidding. What did you dream about?”
I burrowed my face into his shoulder, trying to get as close as possible to his warmth. I felt so safe and protected by the solid shield of his chest that my terror started to fade, even as I recalled the horrible dream.
“I dreamed of The Countess killing Romelia. She… She had tortured her, and then she started cutting her throat, slowly, agonizingly. She spoke to me. She said it wasn’t only their blood she needed, but their fear and their cries. She wanted to see how long they lasted.”
He stroked my hair as I spoke, keeping my face hidden into his shoulder. I dimly noticed that he had turned on the bedside lamp, which bathed the room in a soft, golden glow.
“It’s normal for you to have such dreams after all that’s happened,” he said, angling my head back with two fingers on my chin, to look down at my face. “You’ve taken this documentary too seriously. That alone was bound to give you nightmares, but Romelia’s murder is far worse than that. It triggered something dark in your subconscious.”
“Hunter, to me it’s obvious there’s a connection here. Don’t you agree?” I asked, staring earnestly up at him.
He nodded grimly.
“Of course there’s a connection. When a castle of The Blood Countess is discovered, a girl is tortured and killed in the same manner The Countess used on her victims. A blind man could see a connection, but what is it?”
I tucked my head under his chin again, unable to find a reply that would ease the frustration in his voice.
“I don’t know.” I sighed. “All I know is that I want to get the hell out of here as soon as possible. I know I’ll never forget this, but at least I want to be far away from this place.”
We sat in silence for a while. Finally, I raised my head again to look at him. The low light cast deep shadows over his face and under his eyes. His skin was pale under the two-day stubble.
“I’m sorry I woke you up. I know you need the rest as much as I do. But I really appreciate you coming to my rescue. Thank you,” I added, smiling faintly.
“You’re welcome,” he replied, his voice deep and husky.
At that moment, I discovered he was naked, except for a pair of black boxers. I had been sitting on his lap for at least a quarter of an hour, crawling all over him, but barely now the realization struck me. The smooth skin of his bare chest looked well tanned. His nipples were taut, dark against the dusting of golden hair sprinkled over his magnificent pectorals. It arrowed down over the length of his sinuous, muscled abdomen to disappear under the waistline of his underwear.
I swallowed hard, unable to keep my eyes off his body, so well sculptured it simply defined pure, raw masculinity. My gaze meandered up again and I noticed the tattoo on his left shoulder. It was a dark-gray snake curled around his rounded biceps. Its snarling head with demonic red eyes and bared fangs covered a good portion of the muscled shoulder. A triangle darted through the beast’s mouth, its top corner spearing its head.
“Any special significance?” I asked, indicating the tattoo with a motion of my chin.
“Just a little souvenir I brought from Saudi Arabia.” When I kept staring at him, he elaborated, “A cobra snuck up on me during my last mission in the Force. I was crawling on my belly during a hostage rescue mission, and the son of a bitch jumped right out of the sand. See? The eyes are drawn right where the fang marks were.” He put his fingers on the tattoo, where I could see two small, faint scars beyond the snake’s eyes.
“You were in the Army?”
He nodded shortly.
“Yeah, for ten years or so. But it wasn’t the life I wanted.”
I looked again at the tattoo. Then the light dawned on me. The triangle was in fact the Greek letter Delta.
“Delta Forces?”
He seemed surprised by my perceptiveness, but he nodded again.
I lifted my fingers to trace the marks on his flesh, invaded by an overwhelming feeling of tenderness. My heart melted as I thought of the pain and agony he must have experienced. He had been a soldier. A tough life, for tough men…
“You could have been killed,” I whispered, still touching him gingerly. Absurdly enough, I felt tears sting my eyes for the man who seemed to have such little happiness in his life. I wanted to cradle his head to my chest and comfort him like a child, to stroke his hair and show him the beauties of the world.
“I wasn’t,” he said gently.
He bent his head, lifting my hand to his mouth. His lips were incredibly soft on my palm, his hot breath sending shivers of arousal through my body. Our fingers interlaced and he looked up again. The intensity of his gaze was almost tangible, making my pulse accelerate as desire sizzled between us.

Guest post, giveaway&review: Wicked Fantasies by Siren Allen

Happy Sunday, everyone! I know that’s how I started my last post as well, and only afterward did I realize it was Saturday! 😀 That’s because authors never really have days off, so to us a weekend means more time to write. And speaking of great prolific writers, today I finished reading Wicked Fantasies, the newest release by one of my favorite paranormal romance authors, Siren Allen. Wicked Fantasies is the third book in the Christmas Fantasies series, and you’ll find out why I loved this book so much in the review I posted below.

But first, here’s what the book is about:

wfteaser1onenight1

One look was all it took.

Their eyes met and at that moment, she knew she’d have to kill him.
He’s Jackson Nolan, a playboy demon. She’s Tinsley Dubois, a demon-killing witch. Killing him should be easy. Problem is, there’s a chance he might be her mate. And every time he stares at her, she has an insane urge to show him that she can be just as wicked as he is.
Unfortunately, she doesn’t have time for that. The world is falling apart around her. To save it, she has to do what she was created to do: kill Jackson and his brothers. But, when allies become enemies, Tinsley realizes that Jackson may be the only one she can depend on.

He’s never wanted a mate.
And though he’s found his, his feelings hadn’t changed. He doesn’t want Tinsley as his life partner. But, he’d gladly accept her as his mistress. Underneath him, she won’t be able to kill him and his brothers like she’s prophesied to do. Underneath him, she won’t be able to lead her squad of dark angels to his doorstep.
Underneath him, she won’t be able to utter curses that could destroy him and his inner beast. However, when he finds her all alone, bruised and battered, having her under him is the last thing on his mind. He wants to protect her, avenge her. He wants to destroy those who seek to hurt his witch. Even if it means destroying those he once called friends.

Finding a mate hadn’t been his plan. Now that he’s found her, he’s not letting her go.
Problem is, how does he convince a demon-killing witch, that he’s a demon worth loving?

~Excerpt~

How the hell could she not like him? He was awesome. Women always liked him. They found him irresistible. He didn’t even have to use his incubus charm to get laid.

Females were willing to drop their panties after one smile from him. Not Tinsley though. Ashely told him that his witch had a hard time trusting others. Which was why he had to keep his word. He had to leave her alone for twenty-four hours.

Listen, his demon growled.

“What’s wrong?”

Just listen.

Jackson listened for signs of danger. There was no sound of angels’ wings. And then he heard it. Not the sound of danger. He teleported back into the cabin. His witch was curled up on top of the covers, wearing the pajamas he’d stuffed into the backpack for her.

She was sleeping. Finally. Her light snores made him smile. He crept over to the bed and lifted her up, careful not to wake her. He moved the backpack and items she’d taken out of it to the side so he could pull back the covers. Without waking her, he tucked her in.

Beautiful, his demon whispered.

“Indeed.”

She was the most beautiful creature he’d ever seen. The moment he laid eyes on her, he’d known he had to have her. Her image imprinted on his mind and it wouldn’t leave, no matter how hard he tried to shove it out.

It had only taken one look and he was lost. One bite had ruined the taste of all other blood for him. He no longer felt like himself. He felt anxious whenever she wasn’t in his line of vision. If something happened to her…

Nothing will happen to her, his beast growled. Ever.

Jackson nodded. If something happened to her, his sister in laws would be upset. He didn’t want them upset. He had to keep Tinsley safe. She murmured something in her sleep then turned over. She needed her rest. So, did he.

We can’t leave her here by herself.

He wasn’t going to do that. He could take a nap on the back porch, on that rickety chair. Yet, he didn’t want to be that far away from his witch. He kicked off his shoes, then walked over to the couch and laid down.

He closed his eyes and listened to Tinsley. He listened to her heartbeat. He listened to her breathing, lining his own up with hers. It took sleep a long time to finally claim him. And when it did, he dreamt of her. In his dreams, she was just as wicked as he was.

Even more so.

And finally, my review of Wicked Fantasies, which I rate 5 stars!

5stars

As an avid Siren Allen fan, I’ve read all the Christmas Fantasy Books and I was anxiously waiting for the next one. Wicked Fantasies did not disappoint! Who can resist the complicated and steamy love story between a demon, and a witch who hunts demons? A moral dilemma, especially when Jackson and Tinsley discover the chemistry between them is more than attraction; it’s a bond that is meant to be. In times when friends become enemies, and enemies discover love together, all they knew to be right changes.

I love the way the author makes me feel and see the things she sees, as her writing flows smoothly to weave a great story. I totally found myself in Tinsley, who is driven and determined to stick to her mission, even if that means ignoring the powerful feelings this particular demon stirs inside her. As for Jackson, I never thought I would like a cocky demon who thinks he can have any woman he wants, until he meets Tinsley. The fact that he’s sexy and dangerous is enough to make him irresistible, but when the protective, tender side of him surfaces, he truly is every woman’s dream!

I recommend this book and this author to anyone who likes an intense, magical romance! ❤

Friday’s Featured Author: Melinda De Ross and her new book, Celebrity

A wonderful history about how I started writing and made a wonderful friend and partner in crime. 🙂
Thank you so much for this lovely post and the trip down memory lane, my dear Susanne. ❤

Welcome to this week’s featured author, Melinda De Ross, who’s showcasing her newest novel, Celebrity.

Melinda is no stranger to Living the Dream, but you may not realize how our association developed.

We met online back in 2013. It’s hard to believe that was only four years ago. At the time, she and I were both publishing our first novels with Front Porch Romance, a crooked publishing house, run by a scam artist, an unscrupulous woman whose lies and thefts hurt a lot of new writers.

Some gave up writing, others, like Melinda, refused to allow her to ruin her dreams.

While Melinda and I have never met, we chat regularly and support one another’s careers. In addition to being an author, Melinda is a tremendously talented cover artist. If you would like to see some of her work, check out yesterday’s post.  Here’s a little more about…

Happy release day, CELEBRITY!

Celebrity Teaser

 

Dear Reader,

They say 7 is a magic number. Since this is my 7th novel, released on November 7th, and it took 7 months to write, I tend to agree. During this time I was engrossed in the journey of my heroine, in the glamorous Hollywood life, where the general motto is “live fast, die young”.
However, few people know this book was inspired by one of my previous novels, The Diary. To me it is such a powerful book I would love to see it turned into a movie one day, and Celebrity includes how I imagined The Diary would come to life on screen. If you enjoy this book, I hope you will also check out The Diary and find out what inspired me so much. To entice your curiosity further, I’ve included an excerpt from The Diary on the last pages of this book.

Enjoy!

 

First readers’ impressions:

“If you enjoy Jackie Collins, you will love CELEBRITY!” – Editorial Review 

“This gutsy woman won’t be broken as she sets out to remake her life Hollywood style. A MUST-READ!” – Susanne Matthews, international bestselling author

And the first review, as well as an interview I very much enjoyed from Ana K, book blogger and aspiring writer: https://toyangi.wordpress.com/2017/11/07/book-review-celebrity-by-melinda-de-ross/

Three days left before you pay the full price for CELEBRITY

Happy Sunday, everyone! It’s November, so my weekend started with cold weather and fog so thick I couldn’t see beyond the edge of my balcony railing. However, I hope you have better weather, especially those of you who live in places warmer than my moody yet lovely Romania.

Celebrity CoverThis week has been a productive one, a week of hard choices and major changes for me, which I’ll be announcing soon on the website. However, today is dedicated to my latest novel, CELEBRITY, which will be released on November 7th, when the price will become $2,99. Until then, you can still preorder it at 99 cents.

Since preorder books don’t have a preview, I’ve decided to post a little excerpt – the first peek into my first contemporary romance, which follows the journey of Kendra Kensington, a young writer who trades her simple existence in Chicago for the glamorous Hollywood life, full of luxury and scandal. In this excerpt, Kendra has just found out her agent landed her a million dollar contract for one of her scripts, and she’s going to surprise her boyfriend, Richard, with the amazing news. However, she’s the one who ends up being surprised, and not in a good way.

 

EXCERPT

When the elevator stopped, I smiled at my reflection in the mirror and stepped out. I took Richard’s key out of my purse and inserted it into the lock as silently as possible. I was sure he was still asleep, but I didn’t think he’d mind being awakened earlier.

As it turned out, I was wrong in both assumptions. The moment I entered the apartment I realized two things: Richard was not asleep, and he was not alone. Judging by the noises coming from the bedroom, he was either watching a porn flick, or he had company. I stood motionless, struck dumb and still by this discovery. I even stopped breathing, while my heartbeats accelerated madly.

Then I was jarred out of my shocked stillness by a particularly high-pitched moan. Feeling as though clouds of steam were coming out of my ears, I walked to the bedroom and pushed open the door. For a moment, I just stared stupidly at the way Richard and his blonde, huge-breasted partner were tangled. It crossed my mind that he’d never been this inventive and energetic with me. Then the adrenaline kicked in, and with it, a wave of fury that made my pulse and breathing go into overdrive.

“You motherfucking piece of shit!” I screamed, advancing into the room, clutching my purse like a weapon.

The rocking stopped abruptly. The blonde let out a girlie scream, but my attention was all on Richard. His eyes were as big as saucers, as he was trying to yank a sheet to cover himself.

“Kendra… It’s not what you think,” he stammered. “I-I can explain…”

“You whore-fucking, cock-sucking, pencil-dick son of a bitch! Is this why you never had enough energy for me?”

I grabbed the first handy thing—which happened to be an inoffensive stack of files—and threw them at the bed. Sheets of paper spread everywhere, but without doing any damage.

“Kendra, listen to me…”

“Shut up, you cheating louse! And you,” I turned to the blonde, who was uselessly trying to cover up her tits. “I hope he’s better with you than he ever was with me. I haven’t faked it so much in my life as I did with this lousy bastard!”

I whirled around and stormed out, slamming the door as hard as I could behind me.

If you have enjoyed this excerpt, rush over and preorder CELEBRITY from your favorite retailer, and don’t forget to leave a review. ❤

Stranded, she has to rely on her first love, a man who sees her as his kid sister, for help.
