KEPT: A SECOND CHANCE FAIRYTALE BY A.C. BEXTOR
KEPT is a 386-page stand-alone contemporary romance novel written for those who still believe in fairy tales. A complete love story. No cliffhanger.
Please note: Due to content, this book should not be read by those under the age of 18.
She's a pain in my ass.
She's everything I know I don't want or need.
She's the reason I've fought the darkness for so long.
And yet, she has no idea who I am.
I had no right to Lucy. She was never mine to have. My interest in her should've remained no more than an undisclosed business arrangement.
The day she forced her way into my life, everything I worked so hard to secure began to unravel. From that moment forward, my life has been a mixture of chaos and excitement.
Lucy awoke the beast I've struggled to live with. Now it's up to her to ensure the threat of its ghost no longer holds the power to ruin me.
He hates me.
He's guarded and locked down tight.
He's a brute.
Yet, he opened my eyes to a future I was certain didn't exist.
My life was ordinary. As a single mother living only to make ends meet, I stopped wishing for more. My hopes and dreams in finding Prince Charming ceased to exist. Life forced my priorities to change.
Then I walked into Michael Holden's office and saw pain not so unlike mine reflecting through his icy gaze. He incited feelings I believed to have long since died.
Michael awoke the spring of hope I thought I'd finally set free. Now it's up to him to show me fairy tales really can come true, if you believe.

BASTARD BY J.L. PERRY
The #1 Bestseller. A heartbreakingly beautiful love story.
***FULL LENGTH STANDALONE READ WITH HEA***
Warning – Contains coarse language and sexual content. This book is recommended for 18 years and over.
My name is Carter Reynolds. I was born a bastard and I'll die a bastard. I learnt it at a young age, and nothing and nobody can change that. I'm on a one-way path of destruction, and God help anyone who gets in my way. I hate my life. Actually, I hate pretty much everything.
That's until I meet the kid next door. Indi-freakin'-ana. My dislike for her is instant. From the moment I lay eyes on her, she ignites something within me. She makes me feel things I thought I was incapable of feeling. I don't like it, not one bit. When she looks at me with her big, beautiful, haunting green eyes, it's like she can see into the depths of my soul. It freaks me the hell out. She's like sunshine and rainbows in my world of gloom and doom. I hate sunshine and rainbows.
I'm Indiana Montgomery. My friends call me Indi. Despite losing my mum at the age of six, I have a wonderful life and great friends. My dad more than makes up for the fact that I only have one parent. I'm his little girl, the centre of his world. I adore him.
When Carter Reynolds moves in next door, my life takes a turn for the worse. He's gorgeous, sinfully hot, but that's where my compliments end. He seems hell-bent on making my life miserable. He acts tough, but when I look into his eyes I don't see it. I see hurt and pain. To me, he seems lost.
I should hate him for the way he treats me, but surprisingly I don't. If anything, I feel sorry for him. I want to help him find peace. Help him find the light that I know is buried somewhere within his darkness, but he won't have a bar of it.
He's warned me time and time again to stay away, but I can't. I'm drawn to him for some reason. He's always referring to himself as a bastard. That may be true, but to me, he's more like a beautifully misunderstood bastard. Whether he likes it or not, I refuse to give up on him.
Carter and Indiana's story is told in dual POV, and in two parts, spanning over 8 years.

I am loyal, but I will betray you.
I am strong, but I have scars.
I am an angel, but the devil.
I met her when I was sixteen and she was a breath of fresh air. She swooped in, making me smile. But then she left, taking my next breath with her.
Her smile could light up a room, making my black heart pitter patter.
I found her again ten years later, with a syringe in her arm.
Blood coming from between her legs.
She was broken and I was glad she was broken. She wouldn't think less of me and my damaged ways.
