Maladie Bronwen, a nineteen-year-old college dropout, has had her entire world ripped from underneath her. Her brother, Peter, was killed in a tragic accident, and her best friend and confidante, Logan, disappeared soon after. Living in an abusive household, Maladie is left without a support system or an outlet for her troubles. Soon, a discovery leads her to realizations about her life, and lies that have been told to put her where she is soon unravel as she follows the trail they left. What exactly can pictures say to someone?

Excerpt

Maladie continued to walk outside, heading down the steps, her feet moving quickly towards her car. She threw all of her belongings on the passenger’s seat as she started the car and began driving. She looked to her back seat, noticing a beat-up duffle-bag spilling over with clothing and belongings. She needed to figure out what to take with her and what would just be dead weight. A few clean pairs of underwear, a pair or two of jeans and a few shirts should suffice, she thought to herself as she drove. She got onto the highway, her high-beams on and guiding her way. It was eerie how quiet it was on the roads, but it certainly set an ambiance for the situation she found herself in. She turned on the radio and tuned out her thoughts as she drove, her heart pounding in anticipation of finding out the truth about Logan and her brother.



Author info

I am currently working on the second Miss Affliction book, as well as another YA novel, and am working on upgrading my website. Before I began writing fiction, I was featured on Yahoo! Voices, the Examiner, Northeast In-Tune Magazine, and have been writing on my own blog since December 2012. I recently updated my website and restarted my blog, and the response has been enormous and wonderful. Since most of my work has been non-fiction or satire-based, Miss Affliction is my fiction baby and I am trying to get the word out about it.

~ The Background ~
Evelyn is a pivotal character in books 1 and 2 of the Fallen Angel Series.  In books 1 and 2, readers learn a little of her background, how she met principal characters Robert Stone and his best friend Travis, and how she became such an integral part of their lives.  But that is far from all there is to know about this wonderful character. She has her own story to tell, and it's a powerful one. If you've read the Fallen Angel series, you know that every character has secrets ~ sometimes bittersweet, sometimes utterly devastating, even tragic; and as their secrets unfold, the story deepens with a passionate intensity, weaving the characters' lives together with bonds that cannot be broken.  In every character's life, choices must be made, and very often the past not only determines the choice, but produces its outcome, especially given the complexities of "family culture" explored in the Fallen Angel series. In this novella, Evelyn tells her story, ultimately connecting it to the sequence of events as they unfold in Fallen Angel 1 and Fallen Angel 2.  As you read it, it is easy to imagine sitting across a table in a quiet cafe', sharing a bottle of chianti, listening as Evelyn tells her story, her way...

Evelyn was sixteen years old when she fell in love. She fell in love with a murderer.
Rocco has been sent from Italy to live with the Morietti family in Washington, DC, for his safety, for his protection. He hadn’t banked on meeting the beautiful, but young, Evelyn, the daughter of the man who has given him refuge. He hadn’t banked on falling in love. How hard is it to love the daughter of the man who holds your fate in his hands? And once you fall, how hard is it to keep your love a secret? Which is the greater threat to them both, to keep their secret, or to admit and fight for each other? Evelyn and Rocco are forced to accept a life of secret meetings, lies, love and loss. Few relationships can survive it, and not every romance has a happy ending. But if there is a chance....... is it not worth a try? This is the story of young love, of dreams and hopes for a future not possible. This is the story of Evelyn.

Contemporary romance for readers over the age 18. Although part of the 5* Fallen Angel Series, this novella can be read as a standalone.

Excerpt 

‘Fuck you make me hot Roxy.
I’ve never been so turned on in my entire existence.
Your curvaceous body, lips made for kissing and skin so soft and untouched.
I am so greedy when it comes to you, so get used to sex morning, noon and night from here to eternity princess.’
Kade – Breaking My Heart


Excerpt 

Okay well there’s a glimpse of the girl that makes my heart skip a beat, her true emotions, her honesty.
Her walls are definitely up.
Do I want to have to break down those walls?
Will it be mission impossible?
Will I get hurt again? Fuck
I can’t resist this woman!
As irritating, confusing and frustrating as she is, I just can’t resist her!

Author Bio

Born and raised in Sydney, NSW I am in my thirties and happily married with 3 gorgeous boys.

My first love has always been reading, so the writing side is very natural to me. Favourite books include anything by Abbi Glines, but Fallen too Far is a favourite, Pulse & Collide by Gail McHugh and The Driven trilogy by K Bromberg.

Hobbies of mine are playing netball; shopping and I love listening to music. I add it into my writing frequently.

I am totally enjoying this rollercoaster of being an Indie author and hoping others enjoy my writing as much as I love writing it.

Blindfolded Innocence (Innocence, #1)Blindfolded Innocence 


"I'm not sure what you have been told about me, but I'm not nearly as bad as they make me out to be." His deliciously deep voice carried a little bit of ego.

I'm sure you are exactly as bad as they make you out to be….

Brad De Luca is used to getting whatever and whomever he wants. The premier divorce attorney in town, he's a playboy who's bedded half the city—including his own clients. And when the newest intern at his firm poses a challenge, his seductive prowess goes into overdrive.

Pre-law student Julia Campbell is fresh off a failed engagement and happy with her new independence. Even if she weren't warned away from Brad at every turn, she'd know he was bad news. The last thing she needs is a man who could destroy her job prospects, not to mention her innocence. But before she knows it, the incorrigible charmer has her under his spell. His deviant tastes plunge her deep into a forbidden world of sexual exploration…but her heart may not survive the fall.



To Have (The Dumont Diaries, #1)

To Have 


The lights have become a blanket of sorts, wrapping me in their warmth, shielding me from whatever is out there to hurt me. They block the faces that stare, the eyes that follow my movement. I used to squint when they came on, would duck my head to avoid the glare. But ducking takes me under the glare and reveals the world behind the lights, and that is a world I don’t want to see.

When salvation comes in the form of six feet of drop-dead-gorgeous, complete with a limo and a thick wad of cash, my stilettos run happily out the door to freedom. They say that money doesn’t buy happiness. But it does buy escape. Happiness is an overrated fairytale.


The Girl in 6E (The Girl in 6E, #1)

The Girl in 6E 


A dark and sexy thriller from a sensational new voice.
Deanna Madden, aka Jessica Reilly, hasn't touched another person in three years.

She hasn't left her apartment.

She makes money from performing to webcams on a sex site, where her clients pay $6.99 a minute for her time.

She's doing alright. The dollars are piling up in the bank. She's the number 3 model on cams.com.

And she hasn't killed anyone for years.

But when Deanna sees on the news that a little girl called Annie has gone missing, the story rattles her carefully ordered world. It's uncomfortably similar to the dark fantasy of one of her most disturbing online clients. She's convinced he's responsible for the girl's abduction - but no one will listen to her.

So, after three years, Deanna finally leaves the apartment.

And this is what happens..

AEONIAN KISS by Nicki Scalise

Revenants in Purgatory Book 2



What happens to the dead when they die? Do they go to Heaven? To Hell? On a luxury cruise?

It wasn’t a question Olivia Brennan ever thought to ask. After all, once you've been to Hell and back, how much worse can things get? Her harrowing descent has already cost her everything - her home, her career, the man she loves. But when an enemy resurfaces looking to settle a score, she learns there’s more to lose than she ever imagined.

Purgatory harbors more secrets than the depths of Hell, and Olivia has landed smack dab in the middle of their tangled web. Faced with an impossible choice, she must reach into the darkest parts of her soul for the strength she needs to save everyone she loves. But even if she succeeds, will she ever be the same again?

Maybe some questions are better left unanswered. If there’s one thing experience has taught her, it’s that the universe loves to kick her ass.
