Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around. - "Vanilla Sky"

Time changes people, and in Jared's case, it's no different.
High school was a struggle for him, and it was a year of heartache.
He'd already lost more than anyone should have by the age of eighteen.
But when he gets another chance, years later, with the one girl
he has wanted from day one, he can't get over the past.
Each time she tries to get closer to him, he pushes her further away.

Kollie is a survivor.
She has faced pain and loss in her young life, yet she doesn't
complain about the hand she was dealt.
Forced to support herself, she finds a job as a nanny with a family in her neighborhood.
Imagine her surprise when the guy she crushed on in high school shows up.
She'd always admired him, but never had the nerve to approach him.
It turns out that he's her employer's son, Jared.
That night was the beginning of a romance that pushed their boundaries,
forcing them both to face their demons, no longer able to hide
from a painful past of loss and abuse.
Their whirlwind romance takes place over three consecutive summers.
Join Jared and Kollie as they in turn try to shield one
another from
the pain of past events, while at the same time working to protect one another
from more hurt and loss. While they strive to find and maintain the
connection that continutes to pull them together again and again, summer
after summer, forcing them to realize that what brings them the
greatest happiness of all…is one another.

excerpt
When I look up, there she is, standing near the hotel entrance and looking straight at me. She’s wearing a white tank top and cutoff jeans. Her skin is sun kissed and she has a bright smile on her face. She’s easily the most beautiful woman in this hotel. Hell, in this state. I instantly jump up and start walking toward her. As I approach, I see the tears rolling down her cheeks, and then she’s running toward me. When she finally reaches me, she jumps into my arms and holds on tight. My arms encircle her and I hold her as close to me as humanly possible, enveloping her with everything I have. A sob escapes her and she starts laughing, and I can’t help but laugh too. I have missed this girl so much. More than I even realized. But the dreadful fear that this is only temporary fills my stomach. I want to hold on to her forever, and never let her go.  I don't want her to know what I'm thinking, so I force myself to concentrate on how good it feels to have her back in my arms. “Goddamn, baby I’ve missed you.” I inhale her scent as I hold her close.
“I missed you too.” She says and pulls back, looking up at me. “You’re scruffy.”
“I meant to shave, but I woke a little late.” She makes the scrunched up nose face at me and I can’t help but laugh.
“I kind of like it.”
She touches my face softly before pulling me into her for a kiss. It’s a relief because I was so worried about whether or not she would allow me to kiss her, to hold her, or to tell her how much I love her. The feeling of her lips touching mine is perfect, the moment frozen in time. I never want it to end.  After a while, a minute or an hour, I'm not sure which, she pulls back and slides down my body before her feet land on the marble tile of the hotel lobby. She looks so beautiful and all I can think about is the one thing I want to do right now.  Take her back to my room and show her how much I’ve missed her. Lay her out on my bed and worship every inch of her.
“How long are you here for?” She asks me.
“As long as you’re here, I’m here.”
She laughs at this, “I have somewhere to be tonight, but would you like to go someplace now? Talk? Eat? Whatever! I miss you like crazy.”
“My room? Beach?”
“Oh Lord, not the beach, if I go back I may die from sun exposure, we’ve been there every day thanks to Jamie.”
“Ok. My room it is.” I look around for Jamie.
“She’ll be fine. She is canceling her flight. And then she has to make some calls.”
I nod and we set off for the elevators. “What do you have to do tonight?” I ask while enjoying the feel of her and in mine as we walk hand in hand.
“I’m meeting someone. Family, I never knew I had. I found her last week, and she’s agreed to meet me tonight at her workplace.”
“Who is it?”
“I’ll explain later. Let’s get upstairs. I really want to hear about you.”
“I’m perfect Kollie, just missing you.”
“I miss you too.” She says as she turns to me in the elevator that's taking us to the sixth floor. Her eyes are haunted like they are hiding secrets that she wants to share, but she can't. I can tell that she's struggling, that she wants to express her true feelings. I pull her face to mine and kiss her deeply. Her hands go to my hair, and she runs her fingers through it, softly massaging my scalp.  Without evening thinking about it, I instinctively lift her up into my arms and press her back against the elevator wall. Her legs wrap around my waist as I grip her delectable ass and squeeze. Trying to get myself under control, I break away just long enough to whisper in her ear how very much I love her.

WARNING: This book contains adult content! Only meant for readers 18+! (language, violence, sexual situations)





Excerpt 

    If only she hadn’t been so curious.  But that had always been a flaw of hers, and her mother had warned her that it would get Jane into trouble one day.  Well, today was that day.  Down in the huge barrel were guns.  Not just any guns, but fully automatic weapons without any kind of serial numbers to identify them by.  Jane gulped loudly and started backing away.  Maybe she could leave and forget that any of this ever happened. 
    Her hopes were dashed aside as the back door creaked open loudly and two bulky men in suits stepped outside, glaring at her and especially the camera in her hand.  Realization hit Jane that the men thought she was taking pictures of the guns.  It would probably be best if she handed them the camera, explain that she was just sight-seeing, and then leave.  Instead, she ran.
    Putting every ounce of energy she had into her legs, Jane pumped them as fast as they would go, but the two men breathed down her neck, making the hairs stand on end in fear.  Large arms grabbed her around the waist and brought her down to the ground with an oomph.  As she lay still gasping, trying to catch her breath, Goon #1 grabbed her arms and hauled her roughly to her feet.  Pulling away from the man as hard as she could, Jane kicked out at him, connecting with his shin.  He grunted in pain as his eyes became bloodshot and watery.  Goon #2 watched for a moment with mild amusement before pulling out a switch blade.  The click of metal made Jane pause and watch the long blade spring into sight.  The edge glinted in the remaining rays of sunlight, inciting a fear in her heart that made her legs suddenly feel like jelly.
    “Please don’t hurt me,” she stammered.

    The goons grinned and laughed as Goon #2 brought the blade up to her face, nicking her cheek just enough to draw a line of blood to the surface along with a burn to her skin.  The man came close enough that Jane could smell the whiskey on his breath.  He whispered in her ear, “You’re a pretty hot mess.  Want to know what we do to unsuspecting women that come into our territory?”

SEEKING JUSTICE
 (Book 1)

Genre: Erotic Romance

SEEKING JUSTICE BOOK DESCRIPTION:

Young investigative reporter, Cait Shaw, is not happy about her new assignment; investigating what she deems to be a “seedy” part of Chicago’s more questionable businesses. But her editor seems to have a personal vendetta against the elusive Mr. Justice, leaving Cait with little say in the matter.
Cait is especially shocked and conflicted by her attraction to the irresistible charms of Liam Justice. Liam is like no man she has ever known and she is totally captivated and unprepared for the sinfully erotic, passionate affair they enter into.
As her world is turned upside down, Cait must cope with her growing affection for Liam and his shadowed past.



EXCERPT:
 
I head down the hallway past the kitchen to the supply room. The door is stuck, and I give it a bump with my hip reaching around the doorframe for the light switch. The door closes softly behind me as I take a moment looking around for the cocktail napkins. The light in here is dim, but I finally spot the container. Pulling the sliding library ladder along the shelf rail, I climb carefully in my heels until I’m level with the box I want, delving inside to pull out a couple of the napkin packs. As I step down a rung, hands close around my waist startling me, and I step back off the ladder. With a little shriek, I fall into strong arms. I know surprise is registering on my face, but the angry eyes of Liam Justice, glaring down into my own, puzzles me.
“What the fuck do you think you’re doing?”
I push against his chest. “Put me down!”
Oh, this is too embarrassing. Not the fact that I feel a fool for falling into his arms or the obvious fact that he’s not happy about it, but because I’m suddenly panting. My chest feels tight, my lungs compressed, and I’m struggling for every breath I take. My lips part as desire coils low in my belly. His eyes flick to my mouth, and then back to my eyes with intent, slowly letting my legs slide down the length of his body. Standing in front of him, my heels bring me closer to his mouth, which plays havoc with my equilibrium. I sway slightly. Snaking his arm around my waist, he anchors me to his front as his other arm reaches up to the back of my head, his hand grabbing a fistful of my hair, pulling my head back. An involuntary gasp escapes at his sudden move, and I grasp his broad shoulders, fingers curling into the fabric of his shirt.
“Are you trying to break your fucking neck?” His voice is soft, his breath fanning across my face. I struggle for a deep breath, his scent infusing every cell of my body. This man could make a serious dent in the cologne industry if he bottled his mind-numbing scent. His lashes cast shadows on his cheekbones as my eyes move across his face down to his lips.
“No.” I breathe, looking back up to his incredibly blue eyes. I hope he never lets me go—
He leans over me slightly, pressing me against his arm causing my back to bow. There’s some kind of pulsating, vibrating energy passing back and forth between us. I can feel it, and I wonder if he does.
I lick my dry lips. “You... startled me.”
Before I can take another breath, his mouth comes crashing down on mine, his tongue sweeping in to quickly stroke mine. His mouth is hot, and he tastes incredible. With a mind of their own my hands move from his shoulders to delve into his thick, soft hair as he presses his rock hard erection into my lower belly. His mouth moves over mine sucking my bottom lip between his teeth where he bites down gently. He keeps me anchored against his front, and I moan softly when I feel his hand slide up under the skirt of my dress, stroking my thigh, moving up to my hip. His hand is unbelievably warm as his fingers splay around my hip and dig into my bare bottom.
“Your skin is so soft,” he murmurs as his lips move along my jaw to take my tender earlobe between his teeth, biting down. I whimper at the slight pain.
“Shhh.”
I jerk and almost yelp, grabbing hold of his upper arms when his hand moves from my hip and cups me between my legs. He looks up to meet my eyes. Before I have a chance to decipher his wicked grin he’s twisting the fabric of my thong in his hand, his fingers shredding the delicate fabric as he rips it from my body. I do yelp at the burning sensation where the elastic bites into my skin.
“Caitlyn you need to keep quiet,” he breathes as he bends me back further, placing his mouth in the hollow of my throat, his hand once again cupping my sex. I squeak at the contact and feel his smile against my skin.
“You’re already hot and wet for me.” He raises his head to look into my face. “I do like that, sugar. I like that very much.”

{ AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT ~ Al Daltrey }

~ AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT ~
~ AL DALTREY ~


~ Author Bio ~
By day I work in Marketing, which involves a fair amount of writing. Therefore, I never really had an interest to write for pleasure. When you do it all day, the last thing you want to do when you get home, is more writing. All the while, as my career progressed, so did my involvement in the BDSM lifestyle.

This interest in kinky sex started in my University years. Like most men, I loved meeting women, and especially the occasional one who didn't mind being tied up, or blindfolded, or spanked. All sex was great, but kinky sex was more exciting, more exhilarating, and more fulfilling.

Over the years I was lucky enough to meet my fair share of submissive women. And don't for a minute think these women were weak. Outside the bedroom they were confident, opinionated, gregarious and self-assured. However, inside the bedroom (so to speak) they wanted to feel the strong firm hand of a dominant man taking complete control.

Eventually I found the perfect partner, and am happily in a relationship.

One day, I flipped my laptop open, and to my surprise - I had an urge to write a BDSM story. Soon I had 20 pages, then 40, then 60. The novel that resulted was 'Testing the Submissive'.  The response was overwhelmingly positive, and the reviews excellent - all of which motivated me to continue writing. 'A Condo with Two Views' is my second full length novel, with other projects in the works. If you decide to give any of my writing a try, I hope you enjoy it!

~ Excerpt ~
Abigail Watson-
I knew there was a part of me that was different from most, if not all, of my girlfriends.
Sure, every girl dreams of a beautiful wedding. We all want to fall crazy-in-love with a cool, fun, smart, sexy, successful guy. I guess I wanted that too, in a way.  But I never saw myself as a Princess.  I never wanted to be fawned upon.  There was something a little different happening in my head.  
Late at night, under the covers, in the private darkness of my bedroom, my fingers would wander, along with my thoughts.  The storyline wasn’t rooted in romance.  Instead, I would envision myself strung up from the ceiling, hanging by my wrists, body covered in sweat, tears falling on my breasts, while some man I cherished stood behind me with a whip.
The more the guys around me in college catered to me, the less interested I became. Don’t get me wrong, I like sweet attentive men – as friends, maybe. But guys like that just don’t excite me. To find one’s way into my late night fantasies, my suitor required an entirely different style.
I craved a strong unforgiving dominant that would put me in my place.



BOOK 2- STANDALONE
A Condo with Two Views
By: Al Daltrey
Release Date: January 6, 2015
Genre: Erotica BDSM

~ Synopsis ~
Men and women see the world differently, as do dominants and submissives. A Condo with Two Views is told from two perspectives: Jack’s and Chloe’s. Jack is a loving and protective husband, but with a kinky penchant for sharing his willing wife. Chloe is smart and strikingly beautiful, and obeys every command from her husband, no matter how perverse. Each gives their view of the story: one where Chloe must submit to a grungy caretaker, a sexy lesbian couple, an evil developer, an older sadist, and the list goes on. But, what happens when she’s pushed too far? Is the deep love of a husband and wife more powerful than the bond of a dominant and submissive? What will win out, love or bdsm?

~ Excerpt ~
Jacks View-
I’d say Chloe is the perfect wife. She’s beautiful, of course. She’s killer smart. I often tell her that she’s smarter than I am. If we have kids, I hope they take after her. Not only that, she’s insightful, she’s caring. Yes, at times she can be stubborn. Oh, I guess I should say she can also tolerate quite the spanking. I have to practically pry her safeword out of her when I’m laying into her ass with a paddle.
Outside of the bedroom she can stand her ground with anyone, me included. She’s no pushover. But in the bedroom, well let’s just say that behind closed doors, the love of my life turns into a complete and total slut. Make no mistake; my wife Chloe Walker is a submissive masochist: no wonder I love her so much.
