“I’m still rather new to the Savannah Sloan universe, but after Illicit Affairs, I’m keeping my eye on her as I LOVED it so much.” The Power of Three Readers

I’m not the man you’re hoping I am.
The first time I saw her, she wore her youth like a designer gown. Tailor made to fit her like a second skin. Her innocence obvious even as her body screamed sin.
Two things that spoke to the bastard lingering inside me.
Young and eager, she served herself up to me, a delectable dessert on a gilded tray. I took from her what only one man would ever get to have, and then when it was time, I walked away.
I tried to tell you, I’m the villain of her story.
But now she’s here, broken by a past I had nothing to do with and damned to a future with a man she doesn’t love. Her family sees her as nothing more than a pawn.
She wants more. And I’m the only one that can give it to her.
Don’t waste your sympathy on him. He’ll get over it. As my brother he should have known, I don’t share well with others.
What? I warned you—I’m not the hero here.
But I am the man she needs.
 

 

It’s always starts the same: tightness in my throat, pressure in my chest. It feels as though if I don’t remove myself to a place where I can be alone, that I might die—even though sometimes I wonder if that would really be the worst thing. So I run. At least this time, I had the wherewithal to put on tennis shoes and not run out in my slippers.

 That penthouse. The glamorous sterility of it makes grounding myself damn near impossible. I can’t find something to name in the room of different colors when everything is either white or various shades of tan. That vanilla existence literally sends me into orbit. There is nothing in that environment to distract from the darkness swirling inside me.

When the panic sets in, like it did tonight, I pace the entire minute-long elevator ride to the ground floor. Like a caged animal, I ping four steps from one wall, then four steps to the other. Back and forth. I can’t stop moving. Sweat beading on my neck, my damp hands fidgeting as I beg for the ding of the doors before they open. I desperately anticipate seeing those big plate glass doors that let me run from their expectations. I can put a pin in my father’s predetermined future for me, at least until they find me.

Funny how the path he’s chosen for me has changed so drastically over the last few months. Before, it was law school, working for him, breaking my back to make up for the fact that I was born his meek little girl and not his goddamn respectable son.

Liam Betancourt is far from father of the year. Everything with him is a business transaction. He wasn’t always like that, but one day he woke up and slipped into his god complex like a perfectly tailored suit and hasn’t let something as emotional as fatherhood color his judgment since. His priorities changed quickly. All that matters to him anymore is power, and he only bothers with things that will give him every ounce that he feels entitled to. Now that an opportunity for a fistful of it has come his way, or more specifically, in his daughter, he won’t let it slip away from his insatiable grasp.

 
Savannah Sloan was born in the Pacific Northwest, but gave up beautiful beaches, snowcapped mountains, and Seattle Mariners games to move to the Midwest for a guy.
A tall and tattooed Marine to be specific. You can’t fault her for that.
She is now a mother of four, a disobedient housewife, and a lover of happy endings.
No wait—that’s something else—Happily ever afters… she fully believes in them. However, she’s not opposed to the aforementioned.
In her overabundance of free time, Savannah loves writing about dark, brooding, morally gray men and the strong women who always fall for them.
You can find her on most social media platforms… she’s just not the best at updating them.

“What the fuck are you doing, Avery?” Finn asks, his mood yet again unreadable.

“What are you talking about?” I ask, trying to inject as much nonchalance into my tone as possible. I tip my wine glass back, gulping down way more than I should be with the anxiety medication coursing through my bloodstream.

“Cut the shit. I only like you coy when you’re on your knees.”

My gaze cuts to him as I struggle to swallow the last sip of wine.

“And you fucking know it,” he finishes, an obvious attempt to rile me more after my reaction showed he hit a button.

“I’m not doing anything, Finn. Just trying to have a peaceful first dinner meeting my boyfriend’s family.”

“Meeting the boyfriend’s family,” he scoffs.” The only people not acquainted with one another here are my brother and the woman who was riding me, screaming my name as she came on my face not that long ago.”

I scoot back in my chair, throwing my napkin on the tabletop.

“Stop it, Finn,” I snap.

“Oh, are you afraid the boyfriend will overhear what I’m saying?”

“No, that’s not it at all,” I say, lifting my chin in defiance. “I know you’re just trying to piss me off—or make me leave, perhaps. But it’s not going to work.”

Finn’s eyes narrow slightly, but the reaction is quickly masked with indifference as he leans back in his chair, taking another sip from his wine glass.

“Do you think of me when he’s inside you?”

I yank my wine glass up, tossing the rest back and slam it back to the table harder than I intended. I glance up to Finn as the glass snaps at the stem, the bowl of the glass falling to the table and rolling a few inches toward the center. His eyes trail the movement then settle back on me; a blaze ignited behind his gaze.

“How many times have you squirmed underneath him, imagining it was his brother’s big cock thrusting into you, claiming you, filling you over and over until you tumble off that cliff, that pretty little pussy clenching as you come?” He leans forward. “Do you close your eyes to picture me? Or do you let him fuck you with your eyes wide open but my face where his should be?”

Run hard and fast.
A motto I never thought I would have to live by.
When he came to me to work out his problems, I did my best to stay professional–to help him instead of burning with desire for him.
The more frequent his visits became, the more I knew that it would only be a matter of time.
So when the opportunity finally presented itself, I took him.
A vulnerable young man that needed to be loved, cherished and cared for.
Far away from where anyone would see or judge us.
Is it right?
No, I know this is wrong and I know there will be dire consequences if we get caught.
But if he continues to play along, we can be together.
Besides, a little white lie never hurt anyone, and so far, it hasn’t hurt us either.

He was off limits… but that only made me want him more.
Jaran Iverson was my brother’s best friend and my first love.
But the day after my eighteenth birthday, he left our small town without so much as a goodbye.
Five years later, he’s back, asking for a second chance and expecting the three of us to pick up right where we left off.
Only, I’m older now and far too smart to fall for those soft smiles and sultry eyes.
After years of working through the destruction he left behind, the last thing I need is to fall back in love with the boy who broke my heart.
Mia Carter was everything to me—bright, funny, forbidden.
So when she kissed me one drunken night and begged me to take her innocence, I almost gave in.
The only girl I’d ever wanted was on her knees in front of me.
The problem?
She was my best friend’s kid sister.
The next day, I packed my shit and left town, doing everything in my power to forget her.
Now I’m back and ready to claim what’s always been mine.
Except, this strong-willed, independent vixen isn’t the little Mia I once knew.
She’s the woman I can’t have… but that only makes me want her more.

𝑱𝑨𝑿

For three years I held our fight against him.

For three years I hated simply hearing his name.

Now Jason Malone was back in town. Back home with one mission; fix what he broke.

As if I hadn’t learned from my past mistakes, that night I made another. This one more forbidden—prohibido—than the rest, and the aftermath threatened to divide our familias forever.

𝑱𝑨𝑪𝑬

Best friend’s little sisters should remain in the no-touching zone. And most definitely in the no-banging zone. And Jax was… until the night I returned from the city.

Things were different now. I had changed and she had grown up.

I should have grovelled for her forgiveness, then backed away. Not caved to temptation and crossed lines.

The fallout hit—one thing after another, and in the midst of our chaos, I fell for the girl who had always been off-limits.

A steamy and twisty contemporary retelling of Jane Eyre from USA Today bestselling and #1 Amazon all-star author, Nelle L’Amour.

As my feelings for him deepen, strange, frightening sounds start coming from the room next to mine. My most intimate possessions go missing. And someone’s leaving me notes, threatening my life.

Will I get the happily ever after I’ve always longed for? Or will I be the next victim of The Curse of Thornhill?
