c synopsis
Lonely and lost, I knew I had to leave, even though I didn’t know where I was headed. Driving without a purpose, I let the roads lead. I was just a shell of my former self, devoid of feelings. Hoping I’d find the missing pieces of myself along the way. 
Then I saw him—those menacing deep brown eyes, and an air around him that was formidable. I knew that picking up a hitchhiker was a dangerous thing to do, but I was desperate. 
Desperate for what, you ask? 
To feel.

Hitchhiker © Stacy Borel
“The heart sees what’s invisible to the eye.”- H. Jackson Brown Jr.
funny how life takes you through different twists and turns. As children, we
don’t think, “When I grow up, I want to be in a relationship where it seemed
like a fairy tale in the beginning, but sadly I’m soon undervalued and pushed
aside. Then I think I want to find a stranger on the side of the road and fall
in love with him. I want him to take me down a dark and dangerous path that
could potentially destroy me and make me mentally unstable.” Could you just
imagine if we knew then what we know now, after having lived through hell? What
paths we would have avoided just to prevent the struggle and heartache? Would
you still pick the same course so you could feel it, just once? To know what it
was really like to love someone with your very essence, only to have it ripped
away? The burn, the loss, the grief, the dry crusted tears on your face? The
earth-shattering moment you knew you were well and truly gone and never coming
back? Or would you choose safety—the known, monotonous days—and comfort?
                I think
if I were given these options all those years ago, I would have picked the
second one. As humans, we crave safety and routine. However, having lived
through the moments when I thought my next breath would be my last without him
by my side… I’d pick the pain. Why? Because it was real. I fought a hard and
valiant battle to deny the lust and passion, as if I had a choice. I didn’t
step into it with my eyes closed. Oh no, they were wide open and saw the road
signs that glared in my face.
fucking happening.
fooling yourself.
will kill you.


see, my heart knew what it wanted. It claimed him. The law of attraction did
not give me a choice in the matter. That battle that I fought, it wasn’t with
him. It was with myself. I tried to go back and remember what it was like
before I met him. Who I was, how I acted, how I spoke, the patterns of my life.
There was no remembering anything. That girl was gone. The girl I am now… well,
I am still falling down a rabbit hole. And this bitch is a bottomless pit.

c excerpt
Excerpt from Guarding Nadia © Lainey Reese

Two hours later, Nadia was frumped out in baggy sweats and a
ratty tee, with fluffy socks on her feet that were- unbelievably- resting in
Jonas’ lap.  When she’d come down from
her bath, the men had the popcorn popped and a selection of candy and drinks
spread out that she knew didn’t come from her kitchen.  She’d smiled and gratitude filled her when
she realized that one of them had made a run to the store.  It was a small thing to most people, but for
her the gesture was huge.  They were here
to protect her from harm, not to coddle and entertain her.  She knew that this was a rare occurrence on
their part, and she was touched deeply by it and them.  The contract that she’d signed in their
office two days ago had outlined in minute detail what services they provided,
gummy bears and foot rubs had not been on that list. 

“I still can’t believe you picked Die Hard to
 Jonas commented as he
dug his thumbs into the arches of her feet with deliriously wonderful
results.  She moaned and replied;
“Hey.  Just because I’m a girl
doesn’t mean I have to watch chick flicks. 
I love action movies.  Die Hard is
a classic and Bruce Willis is a freaking stud.”
“I agree with the classic part.”  Caleb said. 
“No comment on the stud part. 
He’s not my type.”  Nadia
chuckled and cranked her head to look up at him. 
When she first sat down tonight, she’d been seated between
them like a proper lady, with both feet on the floor and her back resting
against the cushions behind her.  Before
the first preview had even finished, Caleb and Jonas pounced.  Jonas had grabbed her feet and tugged them
into his lap, while Caleb took her by the shoulders and adjusted her until she
was reclining against him with her head comfortably nestled on his chest.  His elbow was on the couch back, and his
fingers had been playing in her curls nonstop. 
There was something in his expression as she gazed up at him
that was different.  If she didn’t know
any better, she would call that look he was giving her ‘intent’.  Part of her said she was being fanciful, and
it was just the wishful thinking of her long neglected hormones running away
with her.  The other part of her said she
was right on track.
They had her spread out between them, and had been touching
her nonstop since she’d sat down. Yes, they were here on a job.  However, the familiarity of their touch had
left the realm of professionalism the moment she’d clung to Caleb and cried
earlier.  She’d made the first move.  Breached the lines and took things beyond
professional.  Could they be acting on
that, and letting her know in a not so subtle way that they were open to being
more than just her bodyguards?
Considering who she was and what she did for a living, the
erotic images that immediately sprang to life in her brain had her muscles
loosening and her pulse rabbiting.  Then
reality smacked her in the head.  Stuff
like that only happened in books.  No way
could this be anything more than what it was. 
She was deluding herself if she thought that anything even remotely
close to what she was fantasizing about would happen.  Threesomes were things that only reckless and
drunk college students did.  People in
the real world, with careers and families didn’t have wild sexcapades on the
job.  Or off for that matter.  This was just stress and loneliness making
more out of their kindness than what was there, and she needed to get a hold of
herself before she ended up looking like an idiot.
Caleb touched his finger between her brows.  “What’s caused this?”
“What do you mean?” She asked him.
“You were smiling a minute ago and now there’s a frown
here.  What thought caused
that?”  His finger was still on her
brows, gently tracing them and it was doing amazing things to her insides, even
as his question caused her to flush uncomfortably.  She ducked her chin and broke eye contact as
she tried to think of something to say.
Jonas squeezed at the foot he was rubbing and she looked at him.  “Honest answers only between us.  No half truths or dodging either.”  His expression grew intense.  “On any subject.  No matter what it is.”
Nadia felt as if she were in an alternate universe.  Everything felt unreal, as though she were in one of her books after all.  Could it be that these two unbelievably sexy
and intense men were thinking the same thoughts that she was?  Did she dare tell them the truth that they
demanded?  What if she did and then she
had to suffer through the humiliating let down speech?
What if she did and they took her up on it?
All Nadia’s life she’d lived as a responsible, sensible
young lady.  She never smoked or partied
as a teen.  Never snuck out of the house
at night to meet up with friends or a boy. 
She didn’t have her first drink until her twenty-first birthday.  On top of that, despite what she wrote, sex
for her had always been one on one.  In
the dark.  Boring.  No fuss, no frills, no kink…no fun.
Nadia had always believed that was the reason she wrote what
she did.  There was so much pent up
inside of her that it had to have an outlet somewhere or she’d combust. 
As she tore her gaze from Jonas and looked back up at Caleb,
she thought to herself that they might say no, 
but, they might just say yes. God help her but she didn’t want to miss
out on what would happen if they wanted her, and if there was even a small
chance that they did, it was worth the risk.
“I was thinking that this was very intimate and sexy at
first.  Like something out of one of my
books right before things get wild and kinky. 
Then I told myself to snap out of it. 
This wasn’t a book, and that wild and kinky didn’t happen in the real
world.”  She swallowed before
adding; “At least not to me.”
Caleb said.
“What?”  She
was confused.  His look was back to being
intense, and she would swear he was about to kiss her, so she had no clue why
he would say something like that.
“Bruce.” He repeated.  “That’s your safe word.  Say, yes sir, if you understand and
agree.  If not say, Bruce and we stop
here and now.”
“Holy shit.” 
Nadia was dumbstruck. 


“That wasn’t one of your options,
sweetheart.”  Jonas’ chuckle was as
seductive as a caress.

Will this be the perfect place to hide or will she have to run again?

c synopsis
Sexy, tattooed and inevitably dangerous. Memphis is all that and more…

I live for the pain; it’s what drives me to keep moving. But there comes a time when one has to push the demons aside in order to survive.

I thought I buried them deep. I thought I was ready to finally live. Until… my brother, Alex; he throws me into the fire—right into the place I could never control myself, the one place I never want to be again.

When I put my hands on people, they get hurt. Things happen that bring me back to that night. The one that will forever torment me.

I’m doing fine, keeping to myself in order to ensure no one gets hurt by me. Then along comes Lyric, and all I want to do is touch her, to put my hands in places that I know will only lead to her being crushed by me.

She’s the rush that I crave. The darkest of poison running through my veins, killing me bit by bit; like a drug I can’t get enough of even though I’m almost down to my last breath.

And being around her only hurts more, but what she doesn’t understand is that I welcome the pain; I get off on it, which in the end leaves me with the hardest decision of my life—one that might get us all killed…Get Off Teaser 03-2

c excerpt
Lyric steps away and laughs before walking over and stopping in front of me. She looks up into my eyes and licks her bottom lip. Her whole body is glistening with sweat now, and all I can think about is tasting every inch of her. “Dance with me, Memphis.”

I pull my eyes away from her lips and flex my jaw. As much as I want to put my hands all over, I need to fight it, but this fucking liquor isn’t doing much to help it.

“No, Lyric.”

She takes a step closer and runs her tiny, soft hand down my arm. “Just once. It’s not even a big deal. It’s just a dance. It’s not like I’m asking you to fuck me. I’m asking you to touch me.”

“You want me to touch you,” I growl. I roughly slide my hands over her hips before gripping her waist and slamming her up against the wall. Leaning in, I fist her hair in my hand and whisper in her ear. “Is this how you want me to touch you? Touching someone that I know always leads to them getting hurt.” I grip her waist tighter and press my body flush with hers. Her body trembles against mine and her breathing picks up as my bottom lip brushes over her ear. “I’m fucking tainted, Lyric. Running now would be your best option.”

She looks up into my eyes and wets her lips, fighting to catch her breath. “I. Want. You. To. Touch. Me. I’m not running anywhere.”

FUCK! Those words do me in.

c synopsis
Infected by the vampire virus on the streets of Dublin in 1886, the search for a cure brought Henry Clayton to London and to the brink of madness. Salvation and friendship arrived in the form of Dougal, an immortal Highlander with a devilish sense of humor and a love of life.
Amidst turmoil in vampire society, Henry returns to modern day Dublin. The Circle, a cult determined to awaken their Celtic blood god, the first vampire, is once again active.
When Henry meets a young American woman who sees past his human pretense, he fears exposure. However, his fear is overshadowed by curiosity. What is the source of the strange energy between them? Why are vampires stalking her? Determined to find answers, Henry takes Ari into his home and under his protection.
As their connection grows, Henry begins to suspect Ari isn’t what she claims to be. Their shared history may hold the answers to his uncontrollable bouts of rage and thirst. Perhaps, even a cure for his wicked blood.
c excerpt
19th century
“It’s not very inventive.” The Scot caught up to me.
“I beg your pardon.”
“No need for begging, brother, I give it freely.” He chuckled at his own ridiculous joke. “The name, The Leather Apron” He rolled his eyes and waved his fingers by his head in a gesture I felt sure meant to insinuate fright, but came nearer to emulating a fit of some sort. “Well, aprons don’t exactly instill terror, eh?” 
I noticed the intensity of his accent fluctuated, indicating he had probably travelled extensively outside his homeland. 
“How about The Ripper—‘Jack the Ripper’?”
I spared him a sidelong glance in question and he scratched his temple. 
“I knew a man named Jamie once, well hardly more than a boy really, but a big bugger. Legs as thick as tree trunks and a face that looked like his mother dropped him a few times. Anyway, when he swung a sword, sure it’d nearly cut men in two. They called him The Ripper.”
“So why not ‘Jamie the Ripper’?”
“Och, we’re in England. A good English name for an English madman.”
I flinched at his insult, but he didn’t appear to notice. “So what happened to The Ripper?”
“I killed him.” 
I hummed thoughtfully. “The Ripper got ripped.”
“So, where are we going?” enquired my new acquaintance, appearing suddenly anxious for a shift in the direction of our conversation. 
“We are going nowhere,” I answered flatly.
A weathered preacher stood at the junction of the Whitechapel high street, half-crazed and hollering at the top of his lungs to a rag tag captive audience. He called on them to repent and return to God, lest they be struck down for their sins.
I chuckled darkly. Now I was doing God’s work.
The preacher’s glassy eyes grazed across the two mysterious, beautiful gentlemen passing by his improvised pulpit. He heart stuttered out an uneven beat. By the sound of it, the man would be dead before the week was out—a blockage of some sort, preventing steady blood flow.
“Keep your pretty speeches, old man. Own the salvation of your soul before mine. He has already struck me down and I will rage against His damnation until the heavens burn and He feels the heat of the fire He cast me into.” The perfect vision of a tiny child’s hand dripping blood fortified my whispered vow, too low for the preacher to hear.
“How do you move?” The other vampire asked curiously, his eyes narrowed briefly, all joviality suddenly gone.
“I beg your pardon, sir?”
“That weight you wear around your neck like chains.”
I pursed my lips and continued walking. He was persistent—I had to give him that—and almost childlike in his enthusiasm, albeit a naughty child. I couldn’t help wondering what his story was.
With no warning or explanation, I experienced a pressure at my breastbone, as though a hand pressed over my chest. My own covered the curious warmth. I experienced the strangest sensation of being observed, of someone staring at the back of my head. I turned, searching. However, as quickly as it manifested, the sensation vanished and the only thing I felt was the London chill settling deep into my bones.
“I live a good distance west,” I told the vampire. “Keep up or I will leave you behind.”
“Nae problem. I’m Dougal, by the way.”

We’re walking to our table in the back when I feel a strong arm reach around my waist and pull me back a little. I know it’s Julian by the way he smells and the feel of his chest against my back. My pulse quickens. I try to turn around, but he holds me tightly against him and whispers in my ear.

“I’m not sure I approve of this dress in my restaurant. I just watched a few men choke on their food when you walked by. Not to mention you’ve made several ladies very unhappy. It doesn’t leave much to the imagination, mi amor. Es un poquito corto, no?”

I can feel the heat from his body against my back. I can also feel him harden. I grab his hand and spin around so I’m facing him. I put my lips to his ear and whisper back. “I guess it wouldn’t be a good idea to tell you I’m not wearing any panties, would it?”

Have you ever woken up one day and said, “Today’s the day I’m going to do (insert thing here)?” Well, I did, and the result is my first novel, Stay. I always thought of myself as a decent writer, and then a trip down memory lane through my ninth grade book of poetry confirmed it. I realize that I have always had a romantic side and a way with words. With support from my husband and kids (and an unspoken agreement to leave me alone for a few hours every night), I embarked on this incredible writing journey.
I’m originally from sunny Southern California and spent my summers in South Florida. I attended college at FSU and received my Masters in New Mexico. I finally settled in the Washington, DC area. My happy place has always been anywhere near the water.
When I’m not writing, I help run a business with my husband, watch an inordinate amount of sports (my kids play something 365 days a year), indulge my competitive spirit on the tennis court, and spend time with my awesome family and friends.
I am an avid reader, but find my characters feel neglected when I hang out with other author’s characters for too long. When I do read, historical fiction is my favorite genre. I love traveling and experiencing different cultures, places, and times.
I feel so blessed that my love of books inspired me to finally do something that I forgot I had always dreamed about doing.
My someday has arrived!

I’ve written for years and have always wanted to be published. It’s a dream I’ve had since I was diagnosed with leukemia at 11. Here I am 23 years later finally fulfilling that dream. 

I studied business administration and management at Gulf Coast State College. I never have been able to do much with that living in a small town. I do enjoy my job, I get to be creative and messy, ( think finger painting for adults) and it inspires me to write.

c synopsis

Marry me.

Two words Kalli Montgomery never expected to say out loud to Xavier Cruz, even though she’s been in love with the sexy, single father for as long as she can remember. Unfortunately, she hasn’t just been friend-zoned for the past ten years. No, even worse, he’s treated her like a little sister, no matter how hard she tried to prove she could be so much more. When she agrees to spend the summer as the caregiver for his daughter, Lily, she knows it’s her last chance to finally make him take notice.

As unexpected circumstances threaten to disrupt his home life, Xavier’s desperate to keep his family together. He’ll do whatever it takes, even if it means marrying a woman he doesn’t love. For Xavier and Lily, Kalli will do just about anything, even at the risk of getting her heart broken in the process.

Little does she know, sometimes love isn’t quite as unrequited as one may think. Xavier sees her-he always has. And the vow he made all those years ago never to go there with his best friend’s little sister is wavering, and it’s wavering fast. When they come up with a plan that leads to wedding bells, it’s a no brainer.

This marriage of convenience has one rule: absolutely no falling in love.

Easier said than done. Throw together a girl who believes rules are meant to be broken, and a man whose whole career revolves around following orders and you get a recipe for disaster. What could possibly go wrong?

c excerpt

Shooting a glare at him, I throw my hands up in exasperation. “Are you telling me that this whole anticipation thing is one-sided? Is it that easy for you to resist? I really need to step up my game.”

Xavier’s eyes fall to my lips for a quick moment before he looks back up at me. I see the desire in his expression, and without him even saying a word, I know he wants this, too. So why is he making me wait?

“You have no idea how much I want to kiss you right now. How many times I’ve thought of doing just that. Every time you were curled up against me on the couch, I wanted to kiss you. Every morning when you showed up, I wanted to kiss you. Every time you said goodnight to Lily and then slipped out my door? I wanted to kiss you before you left. It’s not a new development. The first time I ever saw you, Kalli, I wanted to kiss you. And I’ve wanted to ever since.”

His admission floors me. He’s told me before that he “saw” me, but I had no clue it was from the very beginning. I’m not really sure how to process it. In fact, he beats me to the punch.

“So now you know. This will be just as hard for me, but it will be so damn worth it. Because when you’ve wanted something for as long as I’ve wanted you? It’ll be the best feeling in the world when I finally get it.”

“Our first kiss will be that epic?”

“A first kiss to rival them all,” he quips, grinning at me. He holds his arms out wide. “Now, we’ll start with a hug and work our way up.”

“I feel like I’m sixteen again,” I tell him as I wrap my arms around his waist.

His hands come down to my back and he gives me a big squeeze, my head pressing against his firm chest. I love this feeling of being in his arms, him holding me close. There’s nowhere on the planet I’d rather be than right here with him. As much as I want him, I know he’s right. I don’t care when it comes. Because when it does, our first kiss will be unforgettable.

His chest rumbles as he chuckles. He squeezes me tight one last time before letting me go. “And it’s only just the beginning,” he tells me. “Have a good night, crazy girl.”

c author bio

Tessa Teevan_Author Photo

I’m a twenty something book junkie who is also obsessed with sports. Bengals, Buckeyes, Reds are my teams! I work for the government during the day, hang out with Air National Guard on the weekends, and have been married to my own book boyfriend for over seven years. We currently live right outside of Dayton, OH with our two cats.

If I’m not writing or looking through tons of photos of hot men, all in the name of research, then you can probably find me curled up with my Kindle, ignoring the rest of the world. I love my sports almost as much as I love my books. My other obsessions include red wine, hot men, country music, and all things Grace Potter.
