Hello faithful followers!
Sorry I had no posts up last week! I hate how Gmail splices up emails anymore - half of my book emails get thrown into promotion (no matter if I add them to my address book or not) and I have to filter them thru all the BS coupon emails and crap like that, to find them! So annoying! I think I finally unsubscribed my book email from every promo list it was on unless it was book related!
Also, last week was just a tough week for me personally too. I'm going through a lot with my daily 9-5 and the people in my life. I was just having major personal issues and it got super bad last week - to the point I was throwing up - so I just laid low.
I'll have posts up later today and the rest of the week!

They call me savage. An untamed beast.
I was born in the cage. Born to fight. Born to carry its name.
Locked away, Iâve spent years waiting for my mate.
I'm pent up with need. Brimming with desire.
All I want is her... That beautiful girl from the picture on my prison wall.
Now sheâs finally here, sharing a cell.
So close. So hard to resist.
But one thingâs for sureâ¦
Even if she doesnât know it yet, sheâs already mine.

Like a wolf thatâs sniffed its prey, my nostrils flare with excitement at the sight of the open door. Finally, after all this time, sheâs mine.
I rush to the door like a rabid animal, wanting to claim her this very instant.
I canât wait any longer. I want her so badly; I feel like Iâm about to explode with need, so I storm through the door, ready to take her.
I kick the door to my cage closed and march toward hers. I ignore everything else in the room and focus solely on getting to her. I peer around the corner through the opening. There she is.
I rush to her, not giving a shit that Syrena is yelling at me, asking whatâs going on. I want her. No, I need her.
I want to bury myself deep inside her and hear her moans as I fill her with my seed. I want to feel her skin on top of mine; I want to lick her crevice and taste her sweetness on my tongue. I want it all.
But when I approach her, she cowers in a corner, diving away when I get close.
Her eyes are filled with fear as I stare at her for a moment, her body shivering.
But thereâs no need to be scared. Iâll take more than good care of her.
Iâll give her every lick sheâll need, every kiss she asks for. Iâll protect her from anything and anyone. Because sheâs mine now â¦
I reach for her and grasp her arm. She resists, jerking free, so I take her other arm. Again, she pulls back and gives me this look as if she doesnât want me to touch her. But thatâs not true. I saw her looking. I saw those hungry eyes. I saw her practically begging for my cock when she licked her lips at the sight of it.
Just as her eyes slide down my body this very instant, taking in every inch of my length. She gulps, visibly impressed. A smirk spreads on my lips.
I know she likes what she sees.
She canât deny her own bodyâs desires.
So I put my hands on her tiny waist, lift her up from the floor, and throw her over my shoulder.
Then I turn around and march right back into the room I came from, kicking the door to her cage shut.
With her fists, she pounds on my back.
Feisty. I like that.
It makes it much more interesting when sheâs just as eager as I am. Iâll make sure sheâs opened up to me before our time is over.
I put her down on the bed, and she immediately tries to crawl away. Towering over her, I grasp her ankles and flip her over. That blue dress looks pretty on her â¦ but itâs in the way. So I lean over her and push it up with my hand until itâs right above her waist. I can see sheâs struggling, her fingers desperately clinging to the fabric as if sheâs afraid of whatâs about to happen.
But the look in her eyes â¦ itâs different from anything Iâve ever seen before. Like she doesnât know whatâs about to happen. Like itâs never happened to her before.
Could she be â¦?
I smile at the thought.
My seed will be the first to lay claim to her womb.
As I hover over her, she places her hands on my chest and face, pushing me away. I grasp them and pin them above her head. My face is so close to hers now â¦ I can smell her delicious scent. With my eyes closed, I take a whiff, and they almost roll to the back of my head. Thatâs how good it smells.
But when I open my eyes again, hers are red, and water fills them again. With my thumb, I brush away the single drop rolling down her cheek. Then I tuck her beautiful white hair behind her ears, and I lean in to press a kiss to her lips.
Itâs agonizingly slow for me, but I know I need to be gentle with her.
For all these years, her body went untouched, and it doesnât know how to respond to a man like me. Doesnât know how to yield.
But Iâll show her. With my body, Iâll teach her how to submit.

Navy SEAL Dex Evans has a problem. His buddies think it’s a riot when they sign him up for a dating service behind his back. But who would have thought that with a profile like SailorBoy69 he’d snag a woman who was hysterically funny and gorgeous. Too bad she was also skittish as all hell. Dex fears that when she finds out his profile was a set-up, his happily ever after could sink to the bottom of the ocean.
Single mother, Kenna Wright was in way over her head. She’d spent years putting her child first while ignoring her needs. So what was she thinking responding to the flirtatious email? Luckily for her, when she is stuck on a project with Dex, he’s even better in person than he’d been on his online profile. But can she believe this sexy SEAL when he says he’s looking for more than a fling?
When one of her co-workers is murdered and it looks like Kenna might be the next one in the killer’s crosshairs, Dex is determined to keep her safe. But with a target on her back, it’s really hard to keep a shield over her heart.
....... Hello SailorBoy69,
SNMP stands for So Not Mary Poppins. Take it to heart. My photo is me, but it’s pretty much a fake, since it took me two hours and twenty dollars worth of product to achieve the look. If we were to meet in person, I probably wouldn’t look anywhere close to this, so soak in this picture. Actually, don’t worry, we won’t meet, but I’ll get to that.
Here’s me in a nutshell. I live in the good part of town because I work my ass off handling my full-time job as a nurse, plus a part-time gig, that’s so my son can go to school in a decent school district. Being a good mother is the most important thing in my life, so I have no earthly idea why I’m responding to your profile since I don’t have time to date. Did I mention I have a kid, two jobs and really don’t look like this?
I like the fact that you’re serving our country. That’s part of the reason I’m reaching out to you. But the real reason I’m writing, is that I’m ninety-nine point nine percent sure you won’t respond, so this is a safe letter to write. I can feel good that I’ve finally put myself out there, without enduring the humiliation of a first date, which I’ll fail at, because I’ll never in a million years figure out how to reach this level of pretty again.
But in all seriousness, I wanted to take aim for a good guy, and you’re it. I like the fact you’re in the Navy. I like the fact, that you work with disenfranchised kids. I think you’re a nice man. Hell, I don’t even care if that’s not your real picture, because responsible men do it for me. Of course in my world they’re like mythical unicorns, they just don’t exist, at least not for me. But the dream of a responsible man makes my panties damp. See I can say this safely, cause you’re not going to respond, and I’m never going to meet you.
So, that’s my story SailorBoy69. Just know that out there in this big bad world a woman thinks you’re pretty exceptional, except for the atrocious cyber name you’ve given yourself of course. Now, if you have a thought of responding, for God’s sake don’t. Remember, it’s me. I have a kid, two jobs, and I’ll look like crap, and you’ll ruin the fantasy.
― Signed, So Not Mary Poppins

He must navigate her broken pieces by changing everything he is. Who he’s been all these years won’t work anymore. But Madi fights him, she fights herself. She fights the madness.
