BLURB for The Muse

Cold, egotistical and a Foxton.

He tore my final performance to shreds with his pen, and embarrassed me for all the world to see.

But hate wasn’t what I felt for Scott Foxton when he touched me. Enemy wasn’t what I thought when he rescued me either.

I got lost in dreams and hope, and ignored the threats that would follow my own deceit.

For once in my life, family loyalty could be damned.

But then I saw the painting.

And now I can’t lie anymore.

The man I shouldn’t want is the one that holds my heart.

I just have to trust that he’ll still believe me when he knows the truth about Persephone Broderick.

 

Excerpt 2 – Persephone Broderick

 

“What else did you want to show me?” I can’t help but feel like this isn’t something that Scott does often, and I want to take my time and savour the experience. 

 “Well, there’s an exhibition downstairs. Quite the highlight, so I’ve been told,” he muses, leading me from the room. 

“Great. What’s it called?” I take a mouthful of my tea as we head for the stairs. 

“Sin,” he deadpans.

 I choke on the tea and begin coughing hoarsely as I struggle to draw breath. “Easy there. Something I said?” He takes my arm to steady me as I continue to sound like I’m coughing up my lung. “No,” I croak. “Nothing.”  “Come on. After what I did to you the other night, it’s me that’s committed all the sin. You’re the angel in the relationship.” 

 I’m still spluttering and trying to regain a shred of dignity, but I heard the word relationship. It could be a simple matter of semantics. Of course, it could. Obviously. Still, the smile that spreads on my face because of it is not something I can hide. And considering he’s about to take me to something called Sin, it must mean something more than nothing, surely? 

I follow as he leads me back down the stairs to the exhibition located at the front of the building, wondering if hand-holding will happen again at any point. He’s a little distant compared to the park. Or maybe he isn’t and I’m just making up problems that aren’t there. He remains quiet as well, just perusing the room confidently. 

 Reading that there’s a quiet appreciation for what we’re looking at on his face, I linger back and let him have his space. Although, I’m surprised he hasn’t talked me through it yet. He doesn’t seem to be someone to hold his opinion in. Especially after what he said when we were at his friend’s show.

 “So, what does your expert eye tell you?” 

“Well, there’s clearly the general theme to the pieces about sin in everyday behaviour.” He puts his arm around me and pulls me in closer to him as he elaborates, and my heart leaps. That’s much better than hand-holding. “I know my definition of sin will be wildly different to yours, for example.” The words feel erotic—personal—as we continue to wander through the darkened exhibit, and it makes my heart pulse with anticipation. “Maybe it’s something we should discuss in greater depth—at mine. Immediately.” 

 “But we just got here,” I nearly pant.

My senses are now being bombarded by him. And his low, seductive voice, his possessive touch, and the surrounding pieces on the wall aren’t helping calm me either. It’s like he flicked a switch as we entered this room, and all the paintings of flesh and cherubs are firing me up tenfold.

 “Lust is a deadly sin, Ms Castlewood. As are you.” His hand moves lower to graze my thigh, one finger labouring the light material of my dress. “And I’ve got things to show you about that. Things you haven’t even dreamed about yet.”

 “You’re incorrigible.” 

 He pulls me in closer to him, and I realise that the cantankerous and grumpy act is part of him, but that’s just the armour—his defence setting. Beneath that, he’s much more.

 It’s easy to get wrapped up in his flirtatious behaviour, almost enough to make me forget what I’m doing and just be, but the bigger sin here is my own betrayal. First to my family, and then to Scott because, as we continue to look around the room, it’s becoming glaringly obvious that I really like this guy. It’s more than just sleeping with him, more than being whimsical or wanting to break the rules, too, and I’m finding it a slow kind of torture to keep all my secrets from him. 

 I wanted to see more of Scott’s world by coming here, but it’s just backfired on me and reminded me of what I’m doing—the dangerous game I’m playing. It’s a game where it will be more than just my heart that could get hurt.

 

Review by Tara

A love story, where love has no boundaries.
“I’m interested in one thing alone. It’s blonde, and it’s one thing I probably shouldn’t be interested in at all.”
Both Seffi and Scott are lost in their worlds. Seffi, a young professional ballet dancer, who’s identity is hidden from people, and Scott, a struggling artist who is at war with himself. When these two meet, sparks fly and the rest of the world floats away. Their time together is like fireworks, but when real life creeps in, secrets and heartache interfere with the fairytale.
“It’s more than just sleeping with him, more than being whimsical or wanting to break the rules, too, and I’m finding it a slow kind of torture to keep all my secrets from him. “
The Muse is an intriguing book. There is so much hope, despair, and longing between the pages of this book. Charlotte and Rachel are an amazing team. Their ideas and words flow seamlessly together, enrapturing us. The connections they create with the characters makes you feel like you are truly experiencing the relationships first hand. All the feels….the dark and the light, the lust and hate….The Muse has it all.
“She’s like a muse to me, a sin I can’t deny myself. Soft skin, that smile. Happiness. Light. Spirited. Youthful. Perhaps she just reminds me of possibilities I’ve long since left behind. “

Excerpt – Scott Foxton

 

A sudden knock on the door has my eyes snatching a glance that way. No one comes here. I grab my coffee again, hoping they’ll just go away and leave me alone. They don’t. The knocking gets louder and louder, to the point where it’s turning into hammering and I’m throwing my glasses on the table.

 Walking to it, I open it as furiously as this mood descending again is worth. I’m so shocked by the vision standing there that I falter back half a step. It’s her. Seffi Castlewood, all five foot whatever of her glaring up at me as if she’s got something to say. Her face softens for half a beat, her eyes fluttering away and down for some reason. It’s then that I remember I’m only half-dressed and still wearing a sheen of sweat from the damn run.

 I slam the door in her face immediately, part in surprise, part needing a fucking reprieve from the actual lines of her body, and needing to pull the screens together in case she comes in.

 My back presses to the door, eyes searching for my T-shirt, as the hammering starts again instantly. Christ. This was unexpected. I walk and get the screens pulled closed, eyes still manically searching for my top, as I listen to the constant hammering that’s getting louder and louder again.

 

 Eventually, I give up searching because of the attack on my door and swing it wide, somewhere near appropriately prepared for the onslaught of her up close

 

. “Yes?” I snap.

 

She barges past me into my space, her frame going under my arm until she’s standing by the table. Three seconds is all it takes for her to take note of The Herald spread open on the table, the picture of her on full display.  

“Pleased with yourself, are you?” she snips, at least walking away from the damn thing. Considering the drawing she could be looking at if it hadn’t landed face down, yes, I am.

 “What can I do for you, Ms Castlewood?” I ask, standing firm.

 “Putting some bloody clothes on would be a good start,” she replies, turning to look through the window.

 Shit, I forgot about that. I scan for my T-shirt again, only to finally realise it’s around my damn neck.

 By the time I’ve shoved the sweat ridden thing over my head, I find her looking back at me with her arms crossed and the glare back in place again. “It was an unfair critique, Mr Foxton. I want a reprint.” 

I snort, astonished at yet more diva behaviour. “Not a chance, Ms Castlewood. It was fair and balanced. Your performance was substandard at best. Tally that with your attitude at the interview and you’re lucky it was even slightly pleasant.” 

 Her mouth opens at the hostile response, eyes like slits as she walks closer. My whole frame backs away instantly. “And I need to ask you to leave. You’re probably the type to accuse me of sexual harassment because you can’t get your own way.”

 

““How dare you! I would never accuse anyone of anything of the sort.”

 “Of course not. I forgot. Sleeping with people is how your sort get to the top of your game in the first place.”

 What was simply indignation and outrage on her features turns damn near violent for someone her size.

 “I did not, and have not, slept with anyone to get where I am. Take that back.” 

“No.” 

She shrugs out of her long, thin cardigan, slinging it on one of my chairs. The very movement flings her billowing summer skirt around, giving me glimpses of everything I should not even notice let alone think about. Tight and taut. Light, creamy skin like silk under the sway of vibrant green. 

 The matching pistachio heels move towards me again, making me look back up at her face quickly. Sadly, it’s not quick enough for me to bypass the swell of her pert breasts under a partly sheer blouse

. “You seem to think you know everything about me, Mr Foxton. I can assure you, you do not. And that review was completely imbalanced. It was disparaging, mocking, and downright rude.”

 “All art is based on opinions. My opinion is mine. You can’t and won’t change it, Ms Castlewood.” I move to the door, opening it for her. “Please leave.” 

She drops down onto one of the chairs without acknowledging the door at all, her legs crossing and her chin aloft. “No.” “ Her neck cricks sideways, swinging her blonde, pencil-straight hair about. “Not until you agree to reprint a realistic review and apologise.” 

A disgruntled laugh chuckles out of me. “I’ve never apologised for a damned thing in my life, Ms Castlewood. And certainly not for my opinion. If you don’t leave, I will have no choice but to call the police. You have not been invited in.”

 Silence. She’s not moving, it seems.

Blurb 

They call me a monster.

Murderous and hateful.

Beautiful but broken.

Nothing can calm the ever raging storm inside of me. As the ruthless leader of the Doubeck family there is a certain standard of brutality I have to uphold.

To be gentle or kind is a weakness I cannot afford.

That is until the day I meet her.

Beautiful, innocent, and so very afraid.

Valentina is a rival family’s daughter, and the little temptress has purposely tangled herself in my dark web.

She seeks me out, needing my help, but the price for what she wants will be steep.

Since my father’s death I’ve needed a wife to solidify my family name and this woman has piqued my interest.

We strike a deal intertwining our futures.

I’ll put a ring on her finger, own her body, keep her safe, and kill them all.

I make a vow to protect her at all costs.

That is until her secrets come to light, and I’m left with the choice of becoming the monster she’s only ever heard rumors about.

**This is a dark forced marriage mafia romance, that ends on a cliffhanger. It contains dub-con/non-con as well as other scenes that may be triggering to some readers.**

 

Review by Tara

Wow! I don’t even know where to start! Vow To Protect is a dark and twisted love story that gripped my attention instantly.
“Not pain and torture, but pleasure and peace. It’s the peace men like me grow addicted to. It’s the peace I see in her face when I look at her.”
Being a nuisance, Valentina has been used for show by her father and her horrible fiancé. Away from the public eye, Valentina is used as their own personal punching bag. Taking a risk, Valentina approaches a monster, hoping he can provide her solace. When Adrian sees Val for the first time, he knows he must have her as his own. But in their world, she must come willingly to him. When a “deal” is made, both Valentina and Adrian get more than they bargain for, including a war and uncovering tragic secrets from their past.
“He’s beauty and brutality in perfect harmony. And I want both for as long as he’ll keep me.”
Vow To Protect is heart wrenching and raw. J. L. and Monica take us on and emotional ride with this twisted love story. Your heart will cry for the characters, and what they have gone through in their lives. Watching the horrible things that Valentina must endure is hard, but seeing her grow is empowering. Adrian is a known monster, but watching him come undone for love will have your heart beat faster. Each page of this book is filled with such intensity, you won’t be able to put down this book.
“She’s heaven and I’m hell, and when we collide, nothing will stand in our way.”

Tara’s 4**** Review

 

“I’m golden. He’s right. I always have been. Everything I’ve ever touched worked out just the way I wanted it to.”
Cash is in a world of trouble. His business has been seized, and now his family knows about the lies he’s been telling them for years. In the process, he is sure he has lost Savannah for good. Should he walk away for fight for her love? Savannah has always been quiet, keeping her opinions to herself. But after meeting Cash something in Savannah changes, and she allows her inner voice to come through. Standing up for Cash is what she wants to do, and nothing will get in her way.
“ “I deserve someone who loves me. Nobody gets to choose what the circumstances are when you fall in love. That you love me and I love you is all that’s important.” “
Ambitious is the follow-up to Ravenous. Leaving us in a cliff hanger, K. M. takes us through Cash and Savannah’s journey through love, family drama, and Cash’s legal trouble. Thankfully Cash’s family and Savannah’s sister are along for the ride. Watching Savannah go for a timid girl to a ‘take-what-she-wants’ kind of woman is so fun, you will want to high five her! Be sure to read Ravenous first, so you have the whole story!
“We started out a little rough, and I’ll forever be guilty of a crime, but between the two of us, we have enough love to make it. And we have a family around us to help us remember even when things get rocky, there’s always people who love you for who you are.”

Welcome to Dayton Valley, ranch country with a sum population of 9022. Sounds idyllic, and it is… until it isn’t

Kitty

I’m back to live and work in the place I called home as a kid, Dayton Valley. I hadn’t realized how much I’d missed it, or the people. One person in particular—Jefferson Delaney. He was hot at fifteen, but now at forty-eight, damn he’s matured well.

I don’t think my lady parts will ever get over our reunion. Let’s just say we wasted no time in getting to know each other again.

Having sex with your high school boyfriend after thirty years apart isn’t too forward, right?

Jefferson

When I was fifteen there was a girl who rocked my world. She left and I got over it. Now she’s back and boy did she grow up—curves to die for and lips for sin.

As she’s planning my son’s wedding, I know I should keep it professional. Sometimes though, you’ve just gotta go with your gut, and when a woman needs some special kind of attention, it really doesn’t matter how swift the reunion!

Distracting your son’s wedding planner with an orgasm isn’t wrong, right?

Dayton Valley… where the men are hard, and the women are horny

Bold, forceful, and aggressive.

Blake Rhodes came into my life at just the right time, rescuing me from the clear and present danger I’d put myself in. But a smoking-hot hook up was all it was supposed to be. One night was all I was offering because I had a mystery to solve back home, a crisis to cover, and the truth to expose.

And Ivy Broderick doesn’t have time for anything that isn’t on my own terms, anyway – Blake included.

But men like him don’t take no for an answer. They pursue and seize with no remorse, making it impossible to walk away. And when trouble seems to follow me home, having a hero by my side again proves useful.

Still, Broderick’s don’t like to be pushed into anything, especially matters of the heart.

And certainly not when he’s keeping secrets of his own.

 

Meet the Broderick siblings in this brand new, thrilling Romantic Suspense series.

Four books – four drama laden love stories.

Families are complicated, especially when they’re built on scandals, secrets and lies.

Review by Tara

Oooo…I love how this series is diving deeper and deeper into the Broderick family. Shrouded in mystery and unknowns, the Broderick family is being targeted, but by whom?
“It’s just a part of me, and I suppose when you’re a woman doing this job, constantly surrounded by men who think you’re not capable, or who are laughing at the pretty girl on war-torn streets trying to compete with the big boys, getting into danger is the way to win the story.”
Strong and independent Ivy is always after the next story. Finding herself in a deadly situation, she meets Blake, a real life hero. Sparks fly immediately, but Ivy can’t let herself fall. When her family needs her, Ivy jumps in with two feet to solve their mystery, but at what costs? Blake has lost a lot in his life, and meeting Ivy has opened his eyes. Unable to forget her, Blake goes after the one thing he’s sure about. But suddenly Blake is thrusted into a world of dark family secrets, while trying to mend his own past.
“I lull in the feeling of it, letting myself fall into senseless, whimsical thoughts of how it might be between us if we did know each other better than we do. That’s not why we’re here, though.  I end up breaking away from him, stalking out of the shadows and heading back for the bar instead of dreaming. Dreams are for idiots.”
I am loving this series. Rachel and Charlotte are a match made in heaven. Their writing styles are so in sync. Each book in this series blends in to the next one effortlessly. And each book gives us so much drama. The Writer is filled with strong characters and secrets that are beginning to destroy a strong family. What will happen next??
 
“I didn’t mean it. I didn’t mean any of this to happen.  And I can’t stay. I have to run. It’s the only choice.”

 

Review by Julie:

Before I opened this book, I knew that I was going to love it, but actually it blew me away.  

The Writer is book 3 in the Broderick Saga, and Journalist Ivy’s story.  From the minute you start reading, the story is action packed and gets the adrenaline pumping.  You are taken straight into Ivy getting herself into trouble, which seems to be a familiar position that she puts herself in.  Blake the sexy ex Military photographer is in the right place at the right time to be her saviour!

Blake is a natural protector, and although frustrated by Ivy’s lack of common sense where her personal safety is concerned he can’t help but ensure she is always protected.  Ivy is fiercely independent, loves her career but is also impulsive.  

Both are attracted to each other, and when Black invites Ivy for a drink, things start to explode between these two. The way that they just fit each other, and their chemistry and feelings progresses things between them far quicker that either understand.  They are both battling issues, distractions and secrets in their lives.  Will all of these stop Blake and Ivy moving forward, can they move forward when unwilling to give themselves completely.  

The action packed twists and turns make the storyline unpredictable and I loved that about this book.  Charlotte and Rachel manage to keep the plotline running through each book in this series, whilst making each book different.  We also see more of the family,  the dynamics, and some answers to questions raised in the previous books, while leaving you intrigued for Book 4.

The ending of The Writer, leads us straight into The Fallen, but don’t think you know what’s coming, I have a feeling this incredible writing duo are going to surprise us even more in this book and keep us waiting for the answers we are waiting for.

Whilst I am tapping my toes waiting for the final Installment, I am also a little sad that it is coming to an end.  This series will go down as a firm favourite for 2021.
