Jake's first job working in the warehouse for Mason introduces him to Devin, a retired undercover police officer. As head of security for the entire contact center complex Devin's influence gives Jake the courage to save a young office assistant, Mia from Paul's unwanted advance.

When Paul is terminated and returns to the complex seeking revenge Jake turns to his new mentor for help. Will Jake escape the active shooter? Will he be the hero once more and save Mia from a fate worse than death?

Kally waved and started back down the rise then hesitated, “Hey,” She called, “There’s something here.”

Brett’s head snapped up and he said, “Leave it.” When he turned back to face her, Kally was gone. Brett shot Jake a panicked look and they headed up the hill. “Kally, stay with the group. Whatever it is, it’s not worth the effort.”

Jake glanced back at Mia and said, “Stay here with Dan. We’ll be right back.”

When they reached the top of the rise Kally was near the bottom of the ravine leaning over gazing down at a patch of pink snow in front of her. Jake started down the hill and Brett grabbed his arm. Once glance at Brett pale expression and Jake froze. He turned back to Kally as she rose slowly and stared into the brush directly in front of her.

“Don’t move,” Brett said loudly as a cougar stepped out of the shadows.

Jake’s eyes opened wide. A mixture of fear and awe ran through him at the site of the big cat. It was nearly twice the size of Charlie, Beth’s Golden Retriever. Its massive claws were as large as a man’s hand. It snarled at Kally revealing large canines capable of ripping Kally’s neck open with one bite.

Jake glanced around for anything to use as a weapon as he yelled at Kally, “Don’t run Kally! Hold your ground! Raise your arms and scream at it!”

Kally was frozen with fear and didn’t react.

Jake ran down the hill, struggling in the deep snow to reach her quickly. He began to wave his arms and yell, “Get away from her! Get out of here! Scat! Go on! Yell, Kally yell at it. Show it you aren’t its prey.”

Brett rushed down the hill after Jake following his lead. When they neared the cat growled and leapt forward. Kally screamed, “Get away! Go on! Get out of here! I’m not your dinner!”

Jake and Brett stopped a few yards behind her. Brett said loudly as he moved to her left, “Back away from it, but don’t turn around.”

It was too late, the cougar attacked. Jake dashed toward Kally screaming, “Don’t let it get you on the ground! Protect your face! It will go for your head!”

Author bio:
I have one of those brains that won't turn off at night. Many nights I would distract my intellect by revamping a movie, book or TV show in my mind. I would twist and turn the plots and characters to achieve the ending I preferred. That developed into side stories about my favorite minor characters. Each night I fell asleep in the middle of a grand adventure. It wasn't long before I began to create stories of my own and put pen to paper.

I love a good adventure. I love a good romance. As the mother of seven children, I also learned to love to play video games. One day it occurred to me to write an adventure that flowed like a video game and I added a touch of romance. Thus, Hypnotic Journey was born. The HJ characters are like a family to me. They are foolish, daring, resourceful, passionate and dedicated to their friends.

My love for Science Fiction gave birth to the Treborel Series. It’s a paranormal Sci-Fi romance featuring a psychotic villain and a multiple layer of hero's fighting to survive the chaos.

I write about how friendship and love can carry you through situations that you might not otherwise survive. You will find my stories exciting and steamy, but I am not an erotic writer. My stories fade to dark when the steam begins to rise, but take it from me, the steam does rise and emotions do soar.

Title: Ahead of the Darkness
Series: The Darkness #1
Author: Simone Nicole
Release Date: March 13, 2014


It has been a long, long time since I’ve seen your little face, chérie. Not once did you visit. That really hurt; after all, it was thanks to you I was convicted. That’s not something you forget.

I thought it was time— a visit was due. Seeing as you wouldn’t come to me, I thought it only right I come to you. Sadly, you weren’t home, but your furry feline was more than accommodating . . .

I’ll be seeing you soon, mon chérie. I’ll always find you . . .

For six years, a letter has dictated Amelia’s future. She’s running from a past that refuses to stop, always trying to get one step ahead. Amelia is clever and resilient, and refuses to slip up.

Relying only on herself, she’ll be anything and anyone she needs to survive. But everyone slips up . . . eventually. You can’t always stay ahead of the darkness.

Title: Out of the Darkness
Series: The Darkness #2
Author: Simone Nicole
Release Date: October 18, 2014


She ruined me.

The walls I’d built were for a reason; locking myself in my own personal prison was out of necessity. Now, with the rubble at my feet, I could do nothing but watch as she ripped my soul in two, taking the half she owned with her.

The need to settle down, to find that missing piece, for the all-consuming love, was never Drew’s plan. He’d spent the better part of a decade suppressing all memory of love, of life. He told himself he had the essentials: the impressive apartment, the successful club, the simple, uncomplicated life he’d worked so hard to create. It was all he needed. Until Mia.

She entered his life like wildfire, burning through his world and destroying all pretence of simplicity, evoking everything he’d fought to deny.

Longing. Warmth. Love.

She made him want it all, but Amelia lived in the darkness. It had always been her constant yet terrifying companion. A shadow she'd never been able to out run and one fateful night it finally consumed her, shattering both their worlds and burying them deeper in the dark.

Drew will stop at nothing to save her, for their happy ever after, but Mia isn’t the only one with demons … It’s a long way out of the darkness.

You have been warned.

As the owner of this blog, I would just like to warn people about foul language in this excerpt before you read it. Please skip over this one if that is offensive to you. Thanks ~ Chantel


Sliding out of the booth, I sauntered across the pub and ducked behind the counter. Nobody gave me a second glance. They didn’t know who I was, nobody did, but they knew I wasn’t anybody good. Peering through the window on the door, Mercy had her back turned, wiping at her damp T-shirt. I could step into her from behind and show her how hard I was…but that wasn’t the way this game was going to be played.
Pressing the door open with the flat of my palm, she looked up at me with blue eyes that gave away two things. Her hair wasn’t naturally black and by the way her pupils dilated, she was amped up. I was interested in only one of these observations and by the way my cock began to stir, there was no guessing which one was the money shot.
Mercy glared up at me, trying to cover her surprise at my appearance.
“What the fuck do you want?” she spat, dabbing at her tiny T-shirt with a rag. “You’re not allowed back here. Employees only."
I stepped closer, not put off by her tone at all. I’d had worse.
“I don’t give a shit,” I said.
She eyed me, her gaze raking from head to cock and back up again.
I quirked an eyebrow, my lip curling in amusement.
“If you want something, just fucking say it,” she said with an exasperated sigh. “I don’t even know who the fuck you are."
“X, what?” she said, putting her hands on her hips. Bitch didn’t miss a trick.
“It’s my name."
"X as in the letter x?" She rolled her eyes.
"Got a problem?" I asked, inching closer.
“Yeah.” She nodded at me. “You’re in a staff only area. You might be all buddy buddy with Weiss, but I don’t know you from shit."
“The mouth on you,” I breathed, totally turned on. I knew she had bite in her, but fucking Jesus H Christ. The more she bit, the harder I got. My gaze rested on her tits. Yeah, I was a tits man through and through and hers...
“You think I’m going to let you fuck me?” she scoffed, her bluntness doing nothing but turning me on even more.
My gaze snapped back to hers. “Who said I was going to fuck you?"
She pressed her hips forward, her groin rubbing into mine. “Your cock."
My hand shot up and grasped the hair at the nape of her neck. With a sharp tug, her head fell to the side, leaving her neck exposed. If I was an asshole, I’d just take her now, but I wasn’t…fuck that. I was an asshole. Asshole was too safe a word to describe the kind of man I was.
“No,” I said, running my gaze down her pale neck and over her tits. “No, I’m not going to fuck you, Mercy.” She gave me a look that screamed ‘offended' and it only made me grin wider. “Not here. When I fuck you, I’m not going to share your screams with anyone."
Her entire body shivered and I knew I had her. Next time, she would come to me.
Letting her go, I let her hair run between my fingers and it took her a beat too long to step back and separate our bodies.
Giving her one last appreciative look, I turned on my heel and exited the ‘employee only’ room. I could wait. My cock strained against my jeans in protest, but this was one desire I was playing out and savoring.
I strode across the bar and pushed out the door, rearranging myself.
I could wait.

#BookReview Romancing Christmas Story #10 - A Father For Christmas by Rachelle Ayala #romance

Title: A Father For Christmas
Author: Rachelle Ayala
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars!

This story will warm your heart and make you believe in goodness again. All Bree wants is a daddy, and when Santa promises her one for Christmas, she is determined to find one. Her mom, Kelly, doesn’t think they need a man in their family, and she isn’t anxious to get into a relationship. Bring in Tyler, a damaged veteran who saw more than he could handle in the war, and watch the sparks fly.

Bree captured my heart, making me root for her to get her Christmas wish, even though I could understand Kelly’s hesitations and fears looking at it from the standpoint of a mother. Tyler is a great hero, despite his problems, and his sweetness and charitable nature melted my heart.

A great story that embodies the spirit of Christmas and the hope for second chances and true love.

What reviewers are saying about
Sugar Rush...

"I could not put this book down. It was laugh out loud funny, hot, romantic, sweet, and it even had me tearing up in parts. A perfect addition to an incredible series."

"Ms Aurora has created a group of friends that you can't help but be envious of and want in your own life. You cannot help but fall in love with each and every one of them." ~ BJ's Book Blog

Author Bio

Belle Aurora is twenty seven years old and was born in the land down under. 

At an early age she fell in love with reading. Boredom one summer had her scouring the bookshelves at home. She stumbled across Sandra Brown's Breath of Scandal and fell in love with romance. 

Having been brought up in a loud and boisterous family of Croatian descent, she developed a natural love for dramatics and humor. Only some years ago had she discovered a new love. 

Humorous romance novels. 

Kristen Ashley and R.L. Mathewson had opened a brand new world where she could lose herself yet feel safe and at home in their stories. Belle has been known to become a screeching banshee while anxiously awaiting their newest titles. 

Belle never thought she would write. It had never interested her until recently. Friend-Zoned began to form and in February 2013 Belle typed the words Chapter One. And she fell in love. 

With words. 

With writing. 

With a creative imagination she never knew she harbored.

Friend-Zoned is the first in the Friend-Zoned series. Keep an eye out for this cheeky author.
