Synopsis

I’m Luna, and I’ve been in the Twilight Zone since I moved in with my sister and her boyfriend.
I sense their secrets in every corner of the house.

Gabriel is eerily beautiful, and his personality disturbingly perfect, while Gaia’s inexplicable PTSD and mood swings bounce her between bliss and despair.

Until Gabriel’s brothers pay a visit.

Cassiel…
He’s the night to his brother’s day. He’s sex personified and the devil in one hell of a stunning package. It’s been years since I last saw him, but this man makes me burn. He hooks me with his touch. Enthralls me with those oddly simmering eyes. He pierces my soul with his knowing smirks, and I am losing myself in him.

Ka…
With pearlescent hair and spring green eyes, he crashes into my world. I thought this crazy, beautiful man could mend my bleeding heart. Make things recognizable again—normal. Instead he pulls me from the embers and feeds me to the open fire.

College life. Is this what everyone goes through?

About The Author

Sunniva

Originally from Norway, I moved to the United States twelve years ago. I hold a Master’s degree in languages and taught Spanish at college level before settling in at the Savannah College of Art and Design as an adviser.

I write New Adult fiction, sometimes with a paranormal twist—like in “Shattering Halos,” published by The Wild Rose Press in February 24th 2014 and in “Stargazer,” estimated release date, November 2014. The first book I’m self-publishing is the New Adult Contemporary novel “Pandora Wild Child,” which will make me a proud indie author in October 28th 2014!

I specialize in impulsive heroines, bad-boys, and good-boys running amok. Then, there’s the intense love, physical and emotional attraction beyond reason—sensory overload for the reader as well as for the characters. Like in real life, I hope you’re unable to predict what comes next in my stories.

Yes, so I write what I love to read, and depending on the reader, you’ll find my books to be a fast-paced emotional rollercoaster—or disturbing because the struggles of love aren’t your thing. Here’s to hoping you have the same reading vice as me! ;-)

Excerpt

CASSIEL

What the hell happened back there? She was one measly Earthling. A single goddamn daughter of Eve out of thousands, millions—fucking billions! I was pitiful.

I went home after she slipped out of my arms. Now, I drew in a deep, cleansing breath and reached for the glass of champagne on the nightstand.

Empty already? Fuck.

I untangled from the last chick and got up. In her stupor, a blissful smile still curled her lips. It’d never made me impatient before.

A chilled bottle waited at the wet bar. I snapped it open and poured icy fizz over the strawberry I’d squeezed too hard. The fruity mass resembled bloody entrails, which suited me fine.

Lingerie. My gaze trailed over the second girl. An arm and a leg strained limp toward the floor, soft skin reflecting from the wall-wide mirror. The curve of her ass, the sheer thigh-highs I’d rolled down a fraction. All details that simply made my existence.

This trio would be out my door soon with their minds erased.

“You want another glass?” I grumbled to Perky-Boobs. Not that I couldn’t remember names—some just bored me.

“I—I…” she gasped out.

I hadn’t taken her yet. To attain the hint of a thrill, I’d skipped the dazzling on this one. She sat rigid against the headboard, chest heaving with desire and anticipation. So fucking predictable.

She pinned her knees together, and they tipped demurely to one side. Now she flicked a wide-eyed glance at her friends.

Luna went to Ka again.

I did enjoy how Perky Boobs’ negligee slid open to reveal puffy areolas as she shifted.

“Never mind,” I said. “Your drink can wait.”

And to hell with the Samuelle girl.

Synopsis

Fast. That’s how I like life, especially my two great joys: bikes and women. I’m committed to exclusively riding one, but not the other.

Until April.

A sexy-arse freelance photographer who’s travelled the world, and doesn’t do long walks on the beach or romantic candlelit dinners. She enjoys running with the bulls and food spicy enough to make your hair fall out. If that weren’t enough to get me hard, she rides a mean mother of a motorcycle.

I’ve gotta have a taste of this wildcat.

~Spencer (Jones)

I don’t do fast. Not anymore. I’ve got my career, my independence, and since I fled Spain to come back home I promised myself that I wouldn’t be put second—or third, for that matter—again.

Then I meet pretty boy Spencer.

He’s smooth, oozing the most potent pheromones probably known to modern science, and he’s making a move on me. One kiss was almost enough for my promise to dissolve.

My head says no—my treacherous body screams yes. I’m gonna make Spencer work for it. Make him fight for the chance to have me, because I know that deep down I’m worth it.

~April MacIntyre

 Prologue

SPENCER (JONES)

My head pounds, alerting me to the fact that I’m alive. Barely. I run my hand over my bare chest to find a set of fingers clad with rings. The hand tightens, sharp nails scratching my skin as they sweep over my ribs. I shudder with the realisation that she’s still here. That was not part of the plan.

Her hand continues over to my hipbone, and curls around my side. I turn to see her face buried in the pillow beside me, a cascade of fiery red curls tangled down her back, a strong contrast to her pale skin.

I strain to lift my head off the pillow, and there he is. Ryan. On the far edge of my king-sized bed, face down, bare arse and all.

I’m here again. My life on repeat.

My liver screams out its hate for me, and my body aches in silent protest. And why the fuck is my arse sore?

I wriggle to release myself from her hold.

I don’t like them to stay, but Ryan and I were obviously too fucked-up to care. I must’ve passed out, because normally I deal with their exit.

I don’t do mornings. I don’t do awkward. I like simple hook-ups, and then “see ya”; No expectations, no complications.

This here looks complicated.

Walking naked across my bedroom, the floor littered with condom wrappers and clothes, I pick up a rogue black leather shoe and throw it at Ryan’s arse.

He chokes on his snore, and stirs. “Hey, what the fuck, man?” He rolls over, thankfully tugging the tangled sheets with him to shield his dick. I don’t need a vision of his giant cock in the back of my head today.

“What’s up is that you and Princess Redhead need to leave, buddy. I gotta get to work,” I whisper loudly. Working for Dad today is totally gonna blow.

Ryan swings his legs off the bed, and stretches his arms over his head. “Well, you never fail to disappoint, man. Guess I’ll catch ya next time I’m in town.”

I take a white crumpled towel that I must have left on the floor yesterday and wrap it around my hips. “That depends, mate. If you’re the reason my arse is sore, then this was the last time. Oh, and you might just get the shit kicked out of you.”

He chuckles quietly to himself. “You don’t remember?” He grabs his jeans from the floor in front of him, and slips them on.

“Remember what?” Oh no. Ryan did not go there. I’ll kill him. On instinct, my teeth grind against each other, and I breathe out heavily through my nose as I stalk towards him.

He holds up a hand. “Relax,” he says, as he juts his chin towards the redhead. “Miss Ginger Sex Fiend over there brought toys.”

“Fuck,” I gasp. I’ve seriously gotta lay off the drink.

“Now, get outta here. I’ll take care of Ginger.” Ryan winks, and runs his hands through his mussed up sandy-coloured hair.

Yeah. I need to get to work.

Excerpt

Craig has me backed against the wall, his hands either side of my head and his face is within inches of mine. I can feel his hot breath spurt on my face and his eyes are burning with anger. He look like he wants to punch everything in sight. Okay, so maybe I went a bit too far, but fuck him. I wanted a reaction from him and I sure as hell got one.

                I plaster myself to the wall. I know he would never touch me in a million years, but something primal is in front of me and between being scared of Craig, I am getting turned on by this too. We have yet to have angry make-up sex and right now, as much as I want my bath, sex would not go amiss.

                “Are you trying to fuck me up, Nic? Trying to turn me into a jealous fucker because I damn well am right now.” He spits out. His eyes are all over my face, from my lips to my eyes to my lips again. “I nearly punched the shit out of your little work buddy earlier. You fucking LEFT ME in bed this morning after our fight last night and then I see you all fucking happy as Larry with dickwad. Do you know how that made me feel?

                I shake my head and go to push him off me, but that only spurs him on and his body becomes flush with mine. I have to bite back a groan at the contact. He wraps his hands in my hair and brings my face even closer to his. I can literally taste the beer on his lips and all I want to do is taste it on his tongue. But I need to stand my ground and not let him get one over on me.

                “Well maybe you should stop trying to dig into the past, Craig, leave it the fuck alone. I’ve already told you I feel fucking bad for this morning but you’re a big boy, you should have learned how to set an alarm by now.” I bite back, “And I didn’t bring Jamie along to make you jealous, you wanker, I brought him along to meet you all. But no, you turned it into a pissing contest. I am no ones okay? I am not yours so calm your fucking jealousy.”

                He takes a deep breath and closes his eyes. He unravels one hand from my hair and punches the wall next to me. I jump at the thud his fist makes and he falls forward, his face resting on my shoulder. I stand still, wondering what he is doing and I feel him wrap both hands around my waist. My hands are still idle at my waist, not wanting to touch him.

                “Nic, you are mine. No matter what the hell happens. You. Are. Mine.” He murmurs into my ear and plants a kiss on my neck.

                “Yeah, yours for 8ish more months.” I say and feel him shake his head and tighten his grip on me.

                “No.” is all I hear from him. His words are confusing me and unless he cannot count how long we have left, he’s going insane.

                “Yes.”

                “No.” and with that he lifts himself back up and slams his lips onto mine. I falter back into the wall and Craig moves with me. His lips are hard and rough against my own and I try to keep up his pace. I wrap my arms around his neck, wanting to be closer to him, needing him closer. Our tongues are battling against each other, I can taste the beer and a moan escapes from the back of my throat. I feel Craig’s hands move down towards my arse and one hand grabs a cheek while the other grips my thigh and he hoists me up so my legs are wrapped around his waist. He pushes up further into the wall, so he can hold me in place and I can mould myself to his body; all the while our lips never parting. His kisses are like my next breath. I crave them all day and when I do get them upon mine, its like everything is put into place, I can breathe and let out everything I have been holding in all day. 

                Craig moans into my mouth when I take over dominance and bite his lip, sucking it between my teeth before running my tongue to sooth it. My hands pull at his hair, his hands are gripping my arse and I am writhing against him. I can feel him pulsating through his jeans and I can feel the hardness of his dick pushing into my own jeans and each time I move it causes friction for both of us and guttural groans escape us both.

                Craig rips his mouth from mine and begins to attack my neck. He bites, sucks, licks and all I can do is roll my head to the side to grant him more access while I purr with need and want for this man in front of me.

                “Craig, I need you to fuck me.” I whisper while he’s biting my pressure point. I swallow hard and suddenly we are on the move towards the bedroom. His lips don’t leave my neck until he throws me down on the bed and right there, that very second I can see just how jealous and angry and pissed off my husband is, but I can also see the passion and the need and want for me, and fucking too right, I am going to be another statistic to prove just how fucking awesome angry make-up sex is.

Jennifer’s 4 Star Review

Silly me.  When I read “This novel contains a M/F/M relationship” in the synopsis for Left to Chance, I immediately thought this was a love triangle.  Yeah…no, no, no!  This is ménage or ménage with humor, if I can describe it more accurately.  I didn’t actually realize where this was going until 30% into the book, but let me digress and start at the beginning.

Jade is a twenty-five year old, full-figured young woman who works in a clothing store in Melbourne.  She’s the kind of girl who dresses up for work because she has to, but wears sweats and jeans in real life.  She doesn’t think of herself as the kind of girl that attracts the attention of a hot, sexy male.  She goes to a party at her co-worker April’s home one night and meets Chance, April’s brother, aka, “the man who would be starring in my wet dreams, the hunk I thought my brain had imagined“.  Within the first few pages of the book he’s already declaring his love and they are having hot sex in the basement game room, without protection and not even a discussion about it.  All I could think was, what the f*ck am I reading?!  Is this insta-love on crack, the book just started!  Where is this going? Oh, and then I found out he had just turned 18 a few hours ago.  Cougar time!

In any case, Chase relentlessly pursues Jade, but she is adamant that he stay away because she is 25 and he is 18.  She is doing very well for herself professionally as well.  Unexpectedly, her boss sends her to Sydney for a month to start up a new clothing store with the promise of managing the Melbourne store when she returns. The weekend before she leaves, she goes out to a night club, as a farewell, with April, Chase and her best friend Liberty.  To make a long story short, she sees 2 men in a sexual situation in the club and Chance catches her enjoying the show.  Jade wants to see Chance do the same with another man, and it so happens that he’s at the club with his 19 year old best friend Dane.  Then the light went off in my head and I figured out where this was going.

The sexual interactions in this book were aplenty and they were dirrttty!  These are 3 people that have no qualms in telling each other what they want.  I even felt like Chance and Dane were more interested in each other then they were in Jade.  Left to Chance also had me busting out laughing at times. Jade has an extremely witty sense of humor, and Liberty is just as funny.  The scenes with her father and brother were the best! I literally could not put this book down.  I was even reading while brushing my teeth, wiping the toothpaste off my e-reader, if that tells you anything.  

From what I’ve seen, Ms. Rose writes a variety of genres and I’m definitely checking them out.  I was excited to see that there will be a book #2 in this series.  Liberty and Jade’s brother, Damien, have a love/hate relationship and it looks like another man may be entering the mix.  Left to Chance is well worth the price of admission, just for the un-put-down-able-ness (I think I’ve actually seen this word used in other reviews), it’s smut factor, hot guy on guy action and humor, of course.  Push reality out of the way, let go, and enjoy it for what it is. :-)

Christina’s 4 Star Review

Tara is a “recovery specialist”, or better known to most people as a hired thief. She is hired by people to steal back items that have been stolen from them. She’s sort of a Robin Hood, but instead of stealing money, she steals property. So when she’s working a job one night, breaking into a house, she is apprehended by a private security officer. But he’s not just any private security officer; he’s Jake Forsythe, Tara’s former partner in crime and almost love interest.

Tara and Jake grew up together, Jake not exactly coming from the best of circumstances. Tara and Jake used to steal together and they came close to becoming an item, but when Jake left at eighteen to join the military, Tara never saw him again. When Jake returns to Tara’s life however, it is readily apparent that they are still very much attracted to each other. Jake though, having been through war and back, is not sure he can commit to Tara, thinking that she deserves far better than him.

Jake works for the Schillings Agency, which is a private security firm that is comprised of several ex-military. The owner, Cooper, was the main character in the first book and makes an appearance in this book. The Schillings Agency, in addition to offering muscle, also installs security systems, and it is the security system that Tara had managed to breach in a subsequent job that Jake needs her help with. In order to patch the flaw that allowed Tara to gain entry to her mark’s home, she needs to provide Jake with the code and the patch. She is looking at jail time if she doesn’t comply, but her principles, which have her stealing from the bad guy to help the good guy, keep her from wanting to help. Will she make the right choice to keep herself out of jail? Will that decision decide the fate of her and Nick’s relationship?

Stealing His Heart was a quick, easy read. While it is the second in the Schillings Agency series, it can be read as a standalone. The characters were well developed and I loved the history that Jake and Tara shared. Ms. Alberts did an excellent job of interspersing just enough of their past with their current situation to create a steamy story of second chance love. The storyline, while slightly brief, was well written. This was an easy four star read for me.
