It’s a collection of poetry that is both happy and sad at the same time. Seemingly unrelated, these poems sketch a picture that is meant to be felt rather than seen. They are witty, emotional, passionate, thought-provoking, hopeful, and sometimes tragic. Each piece is a part of the author’s soul, a figment of her imagination, and a window to her most cherished dreams. In a simple yet profound way, every verse relays a message, in the hope that it might guide the lost souls through their darkest times.

Teasers

“I was also cornered by hateful people, now I live in my shell,

Into the deepest darkest nooks, my soul now dwells.”

~Must I Say Hello?

“I want to say this to you, my dear,

We did our best to make her happier,

But she had a sad soul, my dove,

She wasn’t an easy person to love.”

~To Be Fair

“Why are the people you love so hard to please?

Should you not be able to do it with ease?”

~A Strange Truth

“I understand the hatred for I have seen that beast,

I understand sadness for I have felt its greed,

I know of fear, it has been my friend for long,

But what is love? I don’t know that song.”

~I Understand Now

Excerpt

“How good are you at keeping secrets, Lenora Astalis?” His voice wrapped around my neck like a noose.

I wanted to cough. I needed to cough. He terrified me. I hated him with the heat and passion of a thousand blazing suns. He made me feel like a scaredy cat and a snitch.

“Oh, yes. If you’re coward enough to pretend you’re asleep, you’re good enough to keep a secret. That’s the thing about you, Astalis. I can smash you into dust and watch your grains dance at my feet. My little circus monkey.”

I might’ve hated Vaughn, but I hated myself more for not standing up to him. For not opening my eyes and spitting in his face. Clawing his unnaturally blue eyes out. Taunting him back for all the times he’d taunted all of us at Carlisle Prep.

“By the way, your eyelids are moving,” he said drily, chuckling.

He straightened up, his finger making a brief stop at the base of my spine. He snapped his fingers, making a breaking sound, and I nearly jumped out of my skin, letting out a gasp. I squeezed my eyes tighter, still pretending to sleep.

He laughed.

The bastard laughed.

Was he sparing me for the time being? Was he going to check in on me from now on? Retaliate if I opened my mouth? He was so unpredictable. I wasn’t sure what my life would look like in the morning.

Excerpt

Her little nose scrunches. “Don’t be a dick.”
“Don’t ask questions you know the answer to.” I shrug. “Why would couples stand off to the side or walk away from groups and shit like that?”
 She purses her lips, giving a sassy, “Privacy.”
“Exactly.” I shift her more, so they can’t see my face. “Right now, at least half of them are staring right at us, each one thinking something along the lines of how bad you must need me, or how hard I must be for you, if we have to take a few extra minutes to ourselves before we can even consider sitting through a dinner with the rest of them.”
She attempts to glance over her shoulder, so I shoot my hand up, catching her chin before she can, my fingers spreading along her jaw and neck in the same move.
Damn if she doesn’t even flinch. 
I continue. “The girls are wondering what filthy things I’m promising to do to you later when you come to my room, you are coming to my room by the way.” Her eyes narrow, but it’s playful as hell. “The guys are wondering if you’re biting into your bottom lip, if your eyes are growing darker, and wishing they knew what that looked like, knowing they’ll never get the chance now that you’re mine.”
 “Wow,” she teases, purposefully breathy. “You really think you’ve got this whole prepped and ready thing down.”  
A laugh escapes me before I can squash it, and I tug her a little closer. 
She stares a long moment. “So, I’m challenged with convincing everyone your mood swings turn me on?”
“And I get to be the possessive boyfriend who doesn’t want you outta arm’s reach.”
“Get to?” She smashes her lips to the side, tryin’ real hard not to let her grin slip.
“Get. To. D.”
“What makes you think possessive is what I’d like?” 
A light chuckle leaves me, and I lick my lips, leaning into her as I slowly slide my arms down. When she doesn’t budge, my palms slip a little lower, now resting just below her waist, my pinkies propped on her ass cheeks.
She inhales, waiting.
“Demi,” I whisper. “I tell you right now, the last thing you want is a pussy ass dude who won’t push you. You’re too smart, too independent for a doormat of a guy, and too strong to ever be one yourself. You’ll take charge… but you’ll like it more when I do.”

Blurb:
Three things my mother acquired when she became engaged:

1. A brand new Tiffany’s ring.
2. A lavish home on Heartbreak Hill.
3. Three privileged stepsons.

The last thing I expected was to fall for one of them, least of all Thayer Ames.
Beautiful, brooding, and untouchable.
I knew it was a bad idea. He warned me himself.
But he was a thunderstorm, and I never could resist the rain.
It was perfect…
Until it wasn’t.
One night was all it took for our world to crumble, leaving only secrets and lies between us.
Now, I have to face him again, but the boy I used to know has become the man who loves to hate me.

5 STARS!!!!

Untitled

BeFunky-collage

Some stories are written to stay forever in you. And this is one of them. Fake It ‘Til You Break It, is not your everyday story about high school sweethearts. This story tells you how two people came clashing back together than even time couldn’t help but stop for them to fall in love.  Demi and Nico, is not your usual couple in romance.  You get to feel for them (No, scratch that). You are them, while reading their story. Their conflicts are so raw, thoughts just as confused as yours and feelings too deep to run away from, even if you wanted to. There’s no option, but to live through them and hope. Yes, hope while you’re reading that they get their chance at love. Not because it was obvious, but because they were meant to be with each other and would have been a tragedy to separate such force. Demi and Nico get to rewrite the stars. And it’s as beautiful constellation.

If you had any doubts about reading this story don’t be. Great things just happen and this is one of them. Sit and enjoy the ride, because you won’t get tired with the different characters that involve this story. Yes, all of them are significant pieces and are as quirky and important as our Hero and Heroine love story. Their antics will keep you on your toes, from conversation, to stunts pulled by friends; it’s too funny to miss out on these. The author did an amazing work while portraying this story, the details, the dialogue, and the circumstances on which a love story was waiting to happen. Defying hearts, strong willed enemies waiting for the impossible. Their love.  I hope to read more about this author; I’m adding her to my unicorn author list.

Anything but a Gentleman by Elisa Braden

12 Feb

37646129

 

Synopsis

A spinster hatches a plan (with a smattering of blackmail)
Miss Augusta Widmore has no time for proprieties. She must force her sister’s ne’er-do-well betrothed to the altar with all haste—or watch her sister bear the scandalous consequences. But with the blackguard resisting his duty, she needs leverage. And only one man can provide it.

A giant holds all the cards (or so he thinks)
Sebastian Reaver has no time for presumptuous women. He has a club to run. So, when a perfect nuisance invades his office, demands a fortune in markers, and refuses to leave until he relinquishes them to her, he knows just the thing to send her scurrying back to Hampshire: Exact a price this prim country spinster would never agree to pay.

A fiery battle begins (with both sides playing for keeps)
Ordinarily, Augusta would never agree to become the mistress of a notorious club owner—whether he’s a lowborn ruffian or the wealthiest man in London or the most intriguing, ill-tempered giant she’s ever encountered … or all three. Calling his bluff raises the stakes (and the heat), but retreat will mean ruin for Augusta. Now, Sebastian wants her total surrender, and he has a few tricks up his sleeve—soul-stealing kisses, unexpected honor, and electrifying persuasion for the woman he never saw coming.

5/5  Historical Romance Stars!

Unforgettable.

Sometimes as seasons go by our choices to read change, it can be depending in our mood that day, environment or nothing in specific. Sometimes we are not into it and that’s it.  And yet, there are books that are simply too majestic and captures the reader to a degree that we lose the trail of reality and we are transported to another time. Where one does know that our feet are flawlessly gliding in a ballroom full of glittering light. As the melody enfolds us to an enchanting evening, and through the windows one can see how the stars shine from the night sky. It’s perfection.

This is how I felt reading Anything but a Gentleman. I was being sucked in an elegant world, where strong characters resonate in each page and pull you into their story. To laugh at their antics, cry at the unjust circumstances and feel their joy as well share their insecurities and still keep going on. For a new day and love found in the most unusual places. That’s a unique formula and refreshing to read. This author is bold enough to write with such fierceness and cleverness that her story breaks the mold and expose a new side of romance. That is simply irresistible. Even after finishing the book I didn’t wanted to end. It wasn’t enough. Her writing is addicting.

Reading romance novels came easily to Elisa Braden. Writing them? That took a little longer. After graduating with degrees in creative writing and history, Elisa spent too many years in “real” jobs writing T-shirt copy … and other people’s resumes … and articles about giftware displays. But that was before she woke up and started dreaming about the very unreal job of being a romance novelist. Better late than never.

Elisa lives in the Pacific Northwest, where you’re constitutionally required to like the colors green and gray. Good thing she does. Other items on the “like” list include cute dogs, strong coffee, and epic movies. Of course, her favorite thing of all is hearing from readers who love her characters as much as she does.

If you’re one of those, get in touch on Facebook (@authorelisabraden), visit her website (www.elisabraden.com), and – most importantly – be the first to hear about new releases, price specials, and awesome free bonuses by signing up for her email newsletter (bit.ly/ElisaNewsletter).
