Publication date: March 7th 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

She has a secret.

I’m complicated. Not broken or ruined or running from a past I can’t face. Just complicated.

I thought my life couldn’t get any more tangled in deceit and confusion. But I hadn’t met him. I hadn’t realized how far I could fall or what I’d do to get free.

He has a secret.

I’ve never pretended to be good or deserving. I chase who I want, do what I want, act how I want.

I didn’t have time to lust after a woman I had no right to lust after. I told myself to shut up and stay hidden. But then she tried to run. I’d tasted what she could offer me and damned if I would let her go.

One secret destroys them.

 All I took was my Cayman and the bag of cash. I knew where Hazel lived and it was a simple matter of using the many skills I possessed and breaking into her apartment.
I stood over her, wrapped in shadows as she slept. Her face never smoothed from a frown, her lips tugged down with grief. My heart beat for her and I’d hoped—prayed—that she’d be able to forgive me, but I knew it was fruitless.
This was the only path for me. –ROAN

I smiled, dumping our bags on the floor. Then I noticed the broken painting on the floor instead of the wall and the missing coffee table. Goosebumps scattered over my skin. “Um, did something happen while we were gone?”
Clue threw a covert glance at Ben. She shook her head once, her eyes telling him to shut up.
“Oh no you don’t. You’re not keeping secrets from me.” I stormed forward and shook a finger in Clue’s face. “What happened?”
“Obsidian Fox happened,” Ben replied. He shrugged. “He came here looking for you. Got a bit heated.”
My eyes narrowed taking in the smudge of bruises on Ben’s face. His dark skin hid the injury better than white, but he couldn’t hide the swelling.
“He hit you?”—HAZEL
He groaned, stroking harder. His thumb came up and over the head of his cock, pressing the sensitive flesh until he shuddered. “You’re the only woman my cock reacts to. The only woman I want to plunge inside and never stop taking.”
I bit my lip, mesmerized by him. I wanted to suck him. I wanted to take all of him inside me. “I only get wet for you, Roan.”
His eyes snapped closed. “Fuck, call me that again.”—HAZEL

My eyes flared. “Why on my stomach? A vital part of my anatomy isn’t useable unless you intend to teach me how to dry hump a mattress.” I tried to joke, to dispel some of the tense anxiety between us, but Zel’s lips only twitched. I’d mistaken any sense of relief when she secured the padlock—she hadn’t relaxed at all, shaking with tension.
“I want to do something.”
Fuck. She wanted to touch my back. She wanted to look deeper at the tattoos, see beneath the ink to the lash marks and countless other scars hidden beneath the Ghost designs. --ROAN

*Teaser From Tears of Tess*

It had taken being kidnapped, and sold to a man who didn’t want me, to show how much my existence lacked. Q shattered my walls with his uncouth ways. How could I ever go back to a life where my senses lived in limbo? Where no one cared enough to kill for me?
Q stopped washing my hair, gathering me tighter to him. I crushed against his wet, suited chest, inhaling his unique scent.
He let me cry and didn’t reprimand or control. He offered comfort in silence. Lips pressed my forehead, whispering, “Je suis là,” over and over. I’m here. I’m here.
In his kindness, he broke me into the perfect slave. I didn’t need his anger to become devoted. I needed his softer moments—gentle love was my undoing, not demands or threats. I was pitiful with how I needed compassion, companionship.
Tears turned from depression to release. After twenty years of struggle, I finally belonged. 

*Teaser From Quintessentially Q*

I didn’t make a peep as we entered the house or bat an eyelash when Franco stopped short, staring at me in Q’s grip. 
Q took the steps two at a time, never out of breath from hauling my weight. He didn’t slow as we headed down the corridor. He smelled of alcohol and strain, even a trace of blood as he kicked open a door and carried me through.
The moment he slammed the door shut with his foot, he put me down. His lip was bruised and split, a shadow bloomed under his left eye, and he looked sleep deprived and tortured. What the hell happened to him?
He stood straighter, gathering energy from the room yet all the while seeming to shrink in on himself. His eyes locked with mine, and I gasped at the torment deep in their pale depths.
“Remember. If you refuse, I’ll kill you.”

*Teaser From Twisted Together*
I still struggled with how wealthy Q truly was.
But without his wealth he might never have found me. I cringed every time to think how much he bribed to discover information on my whereabouts. Because there was no doubt in my mind. He would’ve bribed. And tortured. He treated me with utter respect and concern, but everyone else was fair game to his temper and snarling need for blood.
