“What?” I stared back at him, unblinking.
He moved closer, taking my face in his hands. “I love you, Evie. I look into the future, and the only thing I see clearly is you. Marry me.”
What’s an eighteen-year-old girl who was madly in love with her nineteen-year-old boyfriend say?
Of course, I said yes.
Twenty-four hours later, I married Adam Gunner at a Vegas chapel to the sounds of “Livin’ on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi. Not the best omen. I get that now.
Then, exactly one week later, I left him. I walked out, leaving behind my wedding ring, annulment papers, and my heart, and he never knew why.
I haven’t seen him since. Not in ten long years.
Now, he’s here, standing before me. Looking at me with nothing but hurt and hatred in his eyes, he wants answers.
Answers I can’t give.

Making my way through the hotel, I exchange pleasantries with the staff on duty. When I reach the coffee shop, I push open the door and step straight into the past.
She’s standing behind the counter. Her face is turned slightly to the right, her attention on the TV mounted on the wall, and her hair is pulled back into a ponytail.
But it’s her.
I feel like a speeding train has hit me, and I’m pretty sure my heart has stopped beating.
It’s really her.
“Evie?” I breathe out her name, like I’m taking my first real breath in a very long time.
Her body stiffens at the sound of my voice. And I watch as her face turns my way. Those big whiskey-colored eyes that I fell in love with all those years ago meet mine, and my world stands still.
My eyes rake over him as I remember the Adam I knew ten years ago and compare him to the Adam I see before me. The long hair is gone, replaced with cropped locks. The unshaven scruff on his face is still very much there though. At least some things haven’t changed.
“You cut your hair.”
“It has been ten years.”
“I know. I just…I remember a time when you said you’d never cut your hair.” A small smile touches my lips at the memory.
“Yeah, and I remember when you promised to love me till death do us part. Shit changes.”
My smile drops from my face. My cheeks sting like he’s just slapped me.
I deserved that. Doesn’t stop it from hurting like a bitch though.

Here’s more about Marked by an Assassin, including an excerpt from this paranormal romance novel.
A snow leopard shifter exiled from his pride twenty years ago, Harbin treads the dark path of life as an assassin, driven by a hunger for vengeance, mercilessly hunting the Archangel members who attacked his kin, murdering his mother and sister.
When a new contract comes in and the mark is a snow leopard shifter, he can’t resist venturing into the mortal world on a personal mission to find out why one from a normally peaceful species now has a price on their head. What he finds in a rundown nightclub isn’t quite what he expects—a beautiful snow leopard female that awakens a fierce hunger inside him.
Aya has spent seventeen years living in London, immersed in the underbelly of the fae world, keeping her head down and her tail out of trouble. But when trouble walks right into her life in the form of a sinfully handsome, dangerous assassin, she is pulled into a whirlwind of events that stir up the nightmares of her past but might just give her a shot at putting those ghosts to rest—if she can resist the dark allure of a male she knows is her fated mate.
Can Harbin and Aya resist the passionate fire that blazes between them as they chase the vengeance they both crave? Or will they surrender to their deepest desires?

Blushing Violet – Ann Mayburn
When a shy, curvy submissive meets two amazing Doms who want to win her heart, which one will she choose?
With over forty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she’s been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.
From a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in, she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she’s never looked back.
Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her ‘sexy space’ and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD.
Ann loves to talk with her fans, as long as they realize she’s weird, and that sarcasm doesn’t translate well via text.

CRAVING RESURRECTION (Aces #4)
By Nicole Jacquelyn
Release Date: January 26, 2015
Amazon Purchase link:
Poet and Amy’s story…
Patrick Gallagher’s future was mapped out—and it didn’t include Amy Henderson or the IRA.
She was everything he’d never wanted. Too young. Too naïve.
Unfortunately, he couldn’t help but be fascinated by the girl who took refuge in his old bedroom, staying with his mum more often than not.
She looked like a Renaissance painting and argued like a solicitor. He couldn’t resist her, and before long, he didn’t even want to.
Instead, he loved her unreservedly… then he married her.
But he couldn’t have prepared for what happened after.
Actions, no matter how large or how small, have consequences—and when the IRA comes knocking, he’s sucked into a life that he’d never anticipated.
Choices were made.
Hearts were broken.
Trust was shattered.
Lives were lost.
Through it all, he loved her.
It was a love that spanned decades.
Nicole Jacquelyn bio:
Nicole Jacquelyn is the mom of two little girls and a full time college student. She hasn’t watched television in well over a year, she still does things that drive her mother crazy, and she loves to read. At eight years old, when asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, she told people she wanted to be a mom. When she was twelve her answer changed- to author. By the time she was eighteen, when people asked her what she wanted to do with her life, she told them she really wanted to be a writer- but the odds of that happening were so slim that she’d get her business degree “just to be safe”. Her dreams stayed constant. First she became a mom, then she went to college, and during her senior year- with one daughter in first grade and the other in preschool, she sat down and wrote a story.

BLP REVIEW ~ TRACY
OMFG……….. get your tissues ready.
This book bloody broke me – in the BEST way!!!
I have to say that my overall thoughts for Craving Resurrection are I LOVE IT… Jeez, I thought Craving Absolution, Farrah and Casper’s story, was a heart shredder and then I read this – I was destroyed, a red nosed, watery eyed, jibbering mess by the end…. and I LOVED IT!!!
It’s not often you come across a book that leave an indelible mark on you, or maybe that’s just me…. I had been (not so patiently) waiting for Craving Resurrection and it was more than worth the wait.
I loved (yep, you’re gonna get sick of that word right here!!) Poet and Amy’s story.
Amy was awesome. She had a pretty shitty upbringing and as an adult even shittier cards that were dealt her way, but she’s a fighter and regardless of what hit her she kept going. I had the feels for her so hard – at some points I felt like I was there, in the middle of the chaos with her and my heart and head hurt like hell.
Patrick…. Aahhh Trick, I loved him ’til I hated himm then I detested him and then, finally, finally he did something kinda right and I fell for him again!! Charming but bloody thoughtless, make your blood boil git that he is!!
We had met Poet way back in book #1 and he’s been pretty constant in the series, but we knew so very little about him. Talk about secrets, lies and skeletons in cupboards……
Christ, the book was such a rollercoaster of a ride that I could barely keep my emotions in check from one chapter to the next!
For half the time I was so fuckin’ annoyed at Patrick and hated what he’s done, how he’d acted and how oblivious to everything he seemed to be and the other half I was mentally shouting at Amy, “talk, tell him, for the love of the gods, open your mouth and speak woman”!!!…….. Hard headed, thick skulled bastards deserved each other – but that small point aside, were they really meant to be??
As with Craving Absolution, a lot of this book happens in the past. Getting the story of Poet and how he came to be an Ace. Finding out the answers to things hinted at in previous books and seeing where his future lies, it’s a wonderfully complete wee package!
We meet some of the MC in earlier times as well as in the present and we are introduced to some new characters.
Peg, I loved her (quite probably harder than Rose and I didn’t think that could be possible) She was a terrific character – but given were she’s from that was a given (then again, I’m biased!!)
Kevin….Yeah, got a lot of thoughts about him but nothing that I can say here and now!! You’ll get what mean when you read the book!
Robbie…. hell, still don’t really know how I feel about him!!
I hate that Nicole made me hurt so bad, but even though she took my heart, carved it up and left it looked like chopped liver, I’d happily go through it all again… She had me thinking about the book for days after I finished reading it. I couldn’t stop crying any time I thought about Amy & Patrick and I was unable to get over this story by starting to read another book, hell I was unable to THINK about reading another book for a while after Craving Resurrection…
Nicole has this outstanding gift and great ability when it come to writing – such an amazing way with words, of painting a picture and telling a story that feels real!!!! Through the series her talent has blossomed and grown and I can’t wait to see how she progresses further as an author going forward!!
THIS Book….. This one does it for me!!! It’s my fave book of the year so far, completely, totally and oh hell…. just bloody thinking about it – I’m gonna feckin cry again!!!!!!
Read it…. if you haven’t checked out the rest of The Aces books, grab them now and get stuck in, you’ll love them!!

The road I’ve traveled has been paved with danger, death, and deception.
