Carter

She was the one for me.

The one that I knew would be mine forever until I made the biggest mistake. I pushed her away and I’ve regretted that decision ever since. I’ve tried to move on, tried to put the memory of her behind me, but she’s always consuming my thoughts. Now, she’s back in our hometown, trying to rebuild a new life. I know she’s keeping secrets. She tries to hide them from me, and I will do whatever it takes to prove that I’m the one she needs. Because Shelby Ross is the other part of me that I can’t live without and I refuse to let her go again.

Shelby

He broke my heart.

I never thought I would be able to pick up the pieces he left behind. When he let me go, I ran away from it all, thinking it was the easiest thing to do. But, running has a price and I’ve paid it in full for years. Now, I’m back where it all began, back to putting my life together and starting over. It should’ve been easy, but Carter Harlow is reawakening long buried emotions that I thought were gone. He wants to make me his again. I can’t let that happen. He ruined me, broke me, and I’m afraid I’ll never survive it a second time around.

Excerpt

PrologueShelby

It seems like a lifetime since I first met Carter Harlow.

We lived in the same small town where you couldn’t go anywhere without seeing a familiar and friendly face. I was five years old and he was six. I remember that day, perfectly. We were at school, playing outside during recess. The school year was almost up, and it was a hot sunny day. The kids in my class played chase, or were in the sandbox making sandcastles. I was sitting on the swing, in my own little world. I didn’t know how to swing yet without someone pushing me. My legs dangled, and I kicked the pebbled rocks with the tip of my shoes. I watched the other kids playing, seeing they all had a playmate. It made me sad and envious that I didn’t have that. All I wanted was someone to push me on the swing. I didn’t have any friends back then, and maybe Carter knew what a lonely little girl I was.

Looking back, I didn’t understand why my Mom didn’t want anything to do with me, or why my Dad always smelled funny. But, Carter didn’t make fun of my dirty clothes, or say anything about how I hadn’t bathed in a week. He walked right up to me, touched my hand holding tightly onto the chain of the swing, and looked right at me.

“I’m Carter. What’s your name?”

I squinted my eyes at him, wondering if he was about to comment on why I was alone. Most kids made fun of me because I didn’t have any friends. They would tease me relentlessly, but it seemed like Carter wasn’t like the other kids at school. “Shelby.”

He stared at me for a moment, then asked, “Can I push you?” I smiled brightly and nodded eagerly. All I wanted was a friend, someone to play with me. Carter took his hand off mine, and walked behind me. He grabbed a hold of the chains, and began to push me. I remembered laughing loudly, loving how high he pushed me. I also remembered holding on tightly to the chains, and looking around the playground at the other kids. They didn’t pay us any mind, and I told Carter to push me higher and higher. He did as I asked, laughing right along with me. I finally had someone to play with, and I felt happy. For the first time in my life, I felt just like all the other kids. I felt normal. I remembered how in just a short amount of time, I felt accepted.

When the bell rang for us to go back inside, Carter slowed me down, and helped me off the swing. He held my hand as we walked back into the building, and I started to dread him letting my hand go, and heading back to his class. I didn’t want him to leave me. “Don’t worry, Shelby. I’ll see you after school.” He told me once we stopped at my classroom. I grinned, and nodded at his promise. That one simple promise meant the world to me, and even if I didn’t have any friends in my class, I knew I gained a new friend with Carter. When he met me right outside my classroom at the end of the day, I knew at the tender age of five, Carter would always keep his promises. Even though we’d just met, we shared a bond, something special.

Thinking about it now, I was way too young to understand the connection we had. There was just something about that sweet, young boy. He quickly became my best friend, and there was hardly any moments when we weren’t together.

Now that I’m older, I still don’t understand the connection we had back then. Even when Carter and his family opened their arms and home to me when I needed them the most. I still didn’t understand why he wanted to be around me. No one else in my family cared anything about me, and it was inevitable for me to fall head over heels in love with him. It didn’t happen suddenly. It happened slowly over the years, slowly changing our relationship into something I couldn’t live without. There are so many things I still look back on, and I try to figure out why Carter and I were so drawn together. Why, after everything we went through, he could just … let me go. I thought what Carter and I had was special, one of a kind. But, everything changed once Carter left for college.

When Carter Harlow broke my heart, I did what I knew best.

I ran.

Well, you know what they say—it’s all fun and games until you’re making out on top of a mobster’s limousine.

Soon Catherine and I are in deep. We’re on guard, on the run, and on top of each other every chance we get. But outsmarting her mobster ex is the least of my worries, especially when I start thinking our falling hard act isn’t an act at all.

But after all this time, can a guy from the wrong side of the tracks find his forever with the sweet and sexy polka-dot-pantied girl next door?

For Jake Wrigley, the future is bleak. Some people are survivors, but he’s getting by on his bad-boy looks and charming smile. He owns a gym, gets into bar fights, and wrestles his demons with rough workouts—both in and out of the bedroom.

For Alyson Road, the future is bright. Life can only improve from where she grew up. She graduated at the top of her law class, cares for her ailing mom, and in her job, she defends those who can’t afford anyone else. Her work is thankless but honest.

Jake’s twin brother has been covering his ass for as long as they’ve been alive, but that all changes when Jake finds himself in front of the fiery public defender, his future in her hands. For the first time ever, he doesn’t want to involve his brother, finally realizing he needs to stand alone, be his own man.

Even if Jake’s never absolved of his past wrongdoings or his heart is never scrubbed of the blackness that resides there, he can do one good deed—protect the beautiful lawyer who touched his soul—until helping her nearly becomes his own undoing.

A Dangerous Demon King by Author J.S.Scott

The final book in The Sentinel Demon series by New York Times, USA Today
and Wall Street Journal bestselling author J.S. Scott.Please NOTE: The Sentinel Demon books don’t stand alone well.
Although each Sentinel gets a HEA in their book, there is so much of the
overlying story arch that would be missed if you haven’t read the other
three books.

Kristoff Agares, King of the Sentinels, is trapped in the realm of
the Evils, so close to death. unstable and powerless from the demon’s
physical and mental torture that he’s barely hanging onto his sanity.

Until he gets a telepathic message from a mystery woman who makes him want to survive, no matter what it takes.

After being rescued by an elite group of Sentinels, Kristoff can’t
ignore his powerful longing to claim his mate, who also happens to be
his savior’s voice in the demon realm. His chosen one was captured as a
child, and had been a captive of the Evils for over two centuries,
until the Sentinels set her free.

With the World in chaos, and the balance tipping almost irrevocably
in the Evils favor, the last thing Kristoff thinks he needs is a
radiant, a human female mate who will lighten his soul. Or so he
thinks…

As Kristoff fights an internal battle, a war between his wants and
what’s good for his mate, he knows he has to make some difficult
choices. Will he be able to tell his mate about his past? And if he
does, will his radiant be willing to accept him after she learns the
whole truth?

(July 29 – Aug 2nd)
 The first book In The Sentinel Demon Series, a paranormal romance by NY Times and USA Today bestselling author J.S. Scott.27 year old Kat Larson is haunted by demons. Literally. And how was
she to know that there was more than one type of demon? The Evils want
to destroy her soul, while billionaire Sentinel demon, Zachary Winston,
claims that he wants to protect her. Kat opts for Zach’s protection…but
it doesn’t come without a price. It requires a demon bargain…and what he
suggests surprises poor Kat almost as much as the fact that demons
really do exist. Why would the handsome billionaire want to make such an
agreement with a curvy, plain redheaded woman like her?

Billionaire Zachary Winston has a mission and it’s one that he vows
to complete. As a Sentinel demon, his task is to protect Kat from the
Evils that will corrupt her soul. His only problem is that she is his
“radiant,” the one woman who can lighten the darkness of his demon
existence and be his eternal mate. Zach has to fight an internal war
between man and demon as he protects Kat, not quite sure which one will
win. He’s one part demon, one part man, but they both yearn for Kat’s
lush, full figured body and kind, compassionate heart. As Zach becomes
more and more enchanted with Kat, he’s hoping she can learn to love a
lonely man/demon that’s only slightly wicked.

This paranormal romance contains graphic language, steamy love
scenes, and lovable alpha males that also happen to be mythological
demons.
