Series: The Dark Legacy Series #1
Author: Elle Boon
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: February 8, 2018
Blurb
A DARK LEGACY where only the strong survive and those who
are Goddess touched can complete the warriors who fight to protect the world
from the creatures that go bump in the night.
DARK EMBRACE
Jennaveve,
the Fey chosen by the Goddess to be the queen of her people for the past few
millennium, is tired and wishes for a break, but hadn’t counted on being
reduced to almost mortal thanks to a dark stranger. They say you should be
careful what you wish for. The last time she’d taken a break, her Fey had left
their realm, resulting in shifters on Earth known as the Mystic and Iron Wolves
and even more she was still searching for.
Damien and
Lucas Cordell knew they’d share a Hearts Love when the time came. As the twin
sons of the Vampire King who’d mated a shifter, they were the first of their
kind. When they’d thought their mate was finally within their reach and was a
shifter like their mother only to realize she wasn’t theirs, they’d almost lost
their lives to the alpha of the Iron Wolves, Kellen Styles. Instead, the error
led them to the being that was…the Fey Queen Jennaveve. Only she was even more
elusive than the wind.
Time and
patience was something Damien and Lucas had in spades, until the female they’d
already laid claim to, even if she hadn’t accepted them yet, was taken by an
enemy. Saving Jenna became their one and only focus. As time and realms slip
between them, their fear for her had them forgetting about patience and made
claiming Jenna as their Hearts Love, hoping she accepted their Dark Embrace.
Will the
Cordell Twins be able to rescue Jenna from the evil who has taken her? Will
Jenna get her powers back? Who is the dark presence and how will they defeat a
being who is strong enough to bring the Fey Queen down to her knees?

Excerpt
They both turned
as one toward the door as a commotion swirled into the room.
“What have you
done?” Raina asked.
Lucas looked at
the tall man who followed behind their sister, waiting to see what Creed, the
son of Satan, had to say. Hellboy himself would be a good one to have on their
side. “Shit, how’d you get in?” he asked as realization dawned.
Damien flashed to
his sister. “Where did you come from?” He held her by the arms, giving her a
little shake.
A deep rumble
came from Creed. “Boy, I suggest you unhand my Eros, or I’ll remove your arms
from your body.”
Lucas came to
stand next to his brother. “Our Hearts Love is missing along with our father.
We’ve been locked into this fucking castle and you two just strolled in like
it’s nothing. We just want to know if you can get us out.” The last was yelled
at a decibel that bordered on a roar, but Lucas was at the zero fucks giving
point.
“You got two
seconds before I start dismembering your brother. Tell him to get his fingers,
palms, and any other body part off my Raina if he wants to keep them.” Creed’s
voice had become the deep tone of his demon side.
“Damien, you
might want to take a step back before we have to rumble with our brother-in-law
in front of baby sis here. Raina, please answer the damn question while our
brother is letting you go. Now, Damien, release her.” He put as much order
behind the last part, hoping to reach his twin, but he’d never seen his twin’s
eyes turn such a dark obsidian like their father’s.
Raina wrapped her
arms around their brother, stilling Creed from going killer beast. “Damien,
calm down. We popped in like we always do. I felt mama’s distress and told
Creed I needed to visit. He of course insisted he come with. When we got here I
couldn’t find her, so I followed you two morons’ scents. There’s another, not
quite the same, but familiar smell here too.” Her voice shook, the slight
tremor more an indication of her rising worry. She released Damien and went to
the same corner. “It’s like dad but toned down.”
“Can you track
him?” Damien asked.
“No,” Creed
growled.
“He took
Jennaveve and our father went after him, alone. He’s our…brother,” Damien said
in a barely there whisper.
Raina spun to
face them, her hand going to her throat. “What?”
Creed flashed to
her side. “She will not be your sniffing dog.”
“Our father has
another son. Goddess, its messed up to even say that. He’s the one who hurt
Jenna. He nearly killed her the last time he had his hands on her. Somehow
that…bastard traced her back here and took her out from under our noses. Now,
our father is tracking them alone while we stand here arguing. We can’t breach
these walls, but you two can. You can sense him, Raina. Please.” Lucas held his
hand out, holding the pillow with Jenna’s scent still on it.
“That’s why
mother is hurting.” She moved forward, a tear slipping down her cheek. “Creed,
I can’t stand here and do nothing when my family is falling apart.”
“Damn it, I knew
this family stuff was going to be a pain in my ass.” Creed jerked the fabric
out of Lucas’s hand. “It’s the Fey Queen. I can scent her as well. We go
together, all of us on one condition.”
Lucas and Damian
nodded, waiting.
“I’m in charge
and Raina is not to be harmed.”
“Hellboy, you can
call all the shots as long as we find our Love.” There was nothing he wouldn’t
agree to in order to find Jenna.
“I’m so going to
regret this.” Creed dropped his chin to his chest.
Raina turned to
face Creed.
Damien pointed at
the two. “No making out with our sister in front of us. Save it for the
bedroom. Let’s go people, times a wasting.” He changed into all black clothing,
and although his words were teasing, the hardness behind the tone was anything
but.
“Can I eat them?”
Creed asked.
Raina shook her
head. “You promised to be nice to my family.”
“Can I let Liv
eat them?”
Their sister
snorted. “No, you told her she couldn’t do that either. Come on, boys. Let’s
get this party started.”
Lucas focused on
Jenna’s sweet smile and promised himself they’d have her tucked between them
soon. When he opened his eyes, his brother was staring with that same single
minded intent on his face. “We’ll get her back and make sure she can’t escape
without one of us always knowing where she’s at.”
Raina snorted.
“You two will learn, a woman like Jenna won’t take to being caged or coddled.”
He met Creed’s
dark stare. “How’s that working for you, Hellboy?”
Creed lifted his
middle finger. “You still wanting a way out of here, or we gonna sling insults
back and forth? Believe me, your little nickname is nothing compared to the
things I’ve been through and trust me, boy, I’ve definitely had much bigger
beings say much nastier things than that to me.”
Instant regret
punched him in the gut. “Damn it, I’m sorry man. You’re right. Hellboy isn’t
meant to be a…bad thing. Shit! I like you and I think you’re great for our
sister.”
His sister’s mate
tilted his head and nodded. “Good enough. Let’s go. One big circle like…well,
one big happy family.”
Damien groaned.
“Son of a bitch, not you, too.”
Their sister
clapped like she was proud to be part of the crazy, wrapping one arm around
Creed and held the other out. He moved forward, slipping his hand in hers,
waiting for Damien to grab onto his other one.
Once they formed
a circle, Creed’s lips formed a straight line. “Here we go boys and my girl.”
Darkness came
quickly. The opulent bedroom replaced by a forest that had gone eerily quiet.
Creed moved next to Raina, waving his hand around her, changing the sexy dress
she’d had on into all black, making her resemble a character from the movie
Underworld. He didn’t have time to question the man as they all seemed to
notice the unnatural quietness.
“Anyone know
exactly where we are?” Damien’s voice echoed around them.
Creed closed his
eyes, then opened them quickly. “We’re still on Earth. Something is unnatural
here, but it’s not demon born.”

Excerpt
Okay, there was a cop out there and not all cops were bad.
That was rational. She wasn’t a kid again, in a patrol car paralyzed by terror.
Dread gripped her at the realization that, as much as she hated the idea, she
would have to trust this cop.



“I repeat, this is the police. Come out with your hands up.”

 

Bracing herself, she tried to speak but a dry throat made her voice inaudible.
A convulsive swallow, and she tried again. “I’m coming out.”
Cautious, she eased into the doorway. She pushed open the screen, grip tight on
the heavy flashlight, then hesitated, blinded by the powerful beam of his
light.
He stood in front of the porch, a shadow darker than the rest. “Stop. Lower
your flashlight to the floor.”
Emma ordered herself not to freak out. Crouching, she reluctantly set down her
only possible weapon. “This is my place. I can be here.” Even to her own ears,
her voice sounded tight with dread.
“We’ll figure that out.” When she’d risen again, he continued, “Put your hands
behind your head and come down the steps.”
Emma raised her arms, linking her fingers behind her head. Slowly she moved
forward. That voice kept whispering in the back of her mind. He could be a
rogue cop. He could rape and kill her, bury her body out in the woods somewhere
and no one would even know she was gone. If he made one wrong move, she’d take
her chances and run. Poised for flight, she couldn’t keep a hard shiver from
wracking her body.
“What’s your name?”
His voice had a low timbre that was somehow calming. They probably taught the
technique in cop school. She tried to see beyond the blinding light but
couldn’t make out his features. “My name is Emma, and this is my property.” She
paused. “Can I put my hands down?”
She’d never felt more vulnerable in her life when the cop ignored her question
and moved behind her. She tensed as he gripped her wrists with one warm hand
and conducted a quick pat down with the other. “Is there anyone with you?”
Her heart beating so hard it was a wonder she didn’t pass out. Emma conducted a
fast internal debate on whether to admit there was no one else, but realized
she had no choice. She was alone. “It’s just me.”
The unyielding presence behind her made her hyperaware. The creak of the
leather cop belt, the hiss of his radio, even the scuff of his boots on gravel
brought back frightening flashes of memory that served to reinforce that she
was at his mercy. And that this could go very, very badly for her. To the
depths of her soul, Emma hated feeling so vulnerable.
He released her clasped hands and moved to stand in front of her. Angling the
flashlight so it wasn’t shining directly in her face, he stood back, watchful.
A stillness settled over him. He stared at her, making her aware of the pull of
his gaze. After a long, arrested moment he appeared to gather himself.
“You can lower your hands now. Sit down on the steps.” He pulled the radio off
his belt, low voice reporting his location and situation, then strode back to
his vehicle to open the rear door.
Sinking onto the porch steps, Emma watched as he leaned inside to retrieve
something, then moved to the driver’s door to reach in and flip off the
headlights. His radio buzzed and he paused to respond. He had the sure,
economical movements of a supremely self-confident man.
The dome light of the SUV lit him from the side, showing a strong profile. His
eyes were on her but he was a good thirty feet away. He responded to the radio
and took his gaze off her to lean farther into the vehicle.
Watching him warily, Emma thought briefly, insanely, of running. She could do
it. Just slip into the darkness and find safety in the trees. But that would be
madness. So far he’d done nothing threatening, other than being a cop, and,
more importantly, she hadn’t done anything wrong. But having the legal right to
be here sure didn’t make her feel any safer.
“Don’t even think about it.”
Emma startled, looking up to find him staring at her across the distance.
Great, the cop was a mind reader.

Title: His Captive Mountain Virgin
Author: Madison Faye
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: February 5, 2018

 

Blurb
Up on this mountain, she’ll play by my rules.
My obsession. My Temptation. My Captive.
When I left life as
a hitman for the Russian mob years ago, I never wanted to look back. I took the
millions I’d made doing their dirty work and built my retreat up on Blackthorn
Mountain, away from everything.
But a flash wildfire
brings her to my front door, and from the moment I lay eyes on
her, I know one thing: she’ll be mine.
Gorgeous, sassy,
innocent, untouched…and my prisoner. No one can know I’m here, so
she stays. I’m keeping her.
Life as a contract
killer and now as a rough mountain man has turned my heart cold. I should keep
a sweet girl like her away from me. But once I put my hands on her tempting
curves and once I taste those sweet, innocent lips, I want nothing else than to
keep her as close as possible.
I’ve saved her from
the fire, but if we aren’t careful, we’ll both get burned.
Because my past
isn’t done with me. The mob I walked away from years before thinks they can use
Chloe to get to me, but they’re dead fucking wrong
Because up here,
I’m king, she’s my mountain queen, and I’ll storm
heaven and hell to keep her safe.
Chloe’s got a fight
in her, but once I lay my hands on her, I’m never letting her go.
Just so we’re clear, this book is completely out
of control, and reality has left the building. If you’re looking for realism,
this ain’t it. BUT, if you’ve got a hankering for a growly-alpha-caveman hero
that will stop at nothing to claim what’s his, then you’re
probably going to devour this book ;). Safe, no cheating, and HEA guaranteed.

Imperfect Monster Teaser

Excerpt

I was afraid. No other reaction was really appropriate as Andre planted one knee on the end of the bed, and I scrambled backward but he caught my ankle and yanked me flat. He was still clothed, sweaty and silent. “Don’t hurt me,” I whispered.
Something in his expression faltered, but then his eyes dropped to my chest and he grabbed my shoulder to turn me onto my side so he could undo the clasp of my bra. He tossed it aside, immediately palming my breasts as he straddled one of my thighs. Thumbs rolling over my nipples, I could barely process that they were already hard and peaked until I felt him tighten his grip and pinch them both.
“FUCK!” I screamed, whimpering as the pain shot like bolts of lightning through my breasts, forcing my back to arch in an effort to ease the strain. But Andre didn’t back off, he twisted them further and I felt tears in my eyes, grabbing onto his shoulders and digging my nails in as if it would make him stop.
Leaning over me, he bit down on my shoulder and I screamed again, pushing at his ribs as he released my tender nipples, and then he had both his legs inside of mine. Spreading me, digging his knees into my thighs so I had no way to stop him, but I could barely focus as his teeth pressed in harder.
“Please, please, please!” I begged, whining when he finally took a breath and released me, his dark eyes staring at the place his mouth had just been. Then he looked between us, and he grabbed my panties, tearing the pale blue fabric as his biceps bulged. The fabric burned against my hips as he ripped it, yanking the remnants out from under me so he could throw it aside. “Andre?”
His name didn’t seem to affect him at all as he slid his fingers between my legs, forcing two of them into me where I wasn’t wet in the least. I whimpered and lifted my hips off the bed, but he ran his thumb over my clit as his mouth moved to my breast, sucking on the tender bud as he stroked me below. For a minute or two, every shift of his fingers seemed to burn and ache, and then my body caught up and started to lubricate around his harsh touch. There was pleasure, and pain, as he opened me up, warming my body for what I knew would come next. It was almost cruel how deft his touch was, the way his thumb swirled over my clit, his mouth sucking and nipping at my breast, sending zings of sensation through my body.
I wanted to fight, and I didn’t. I wanted to give in, and I wanted him to take me by force.
