Ashley Stoyanoff

COVER DESIGNED BY: Mayhem Cover Creations

On the outs with her abusive husband, a romance novelist seeks love and understanding from an unlikely source—a prison inmate serving time for murder.

IfICouldDoItAgain-ebook-2Romance novelist Victoria Clarke seems to have it all: adoring husband, successful career, beautiful home. At least that’s what outsiders think.

In reality, her husband is emotionally abusive, and their marriage is falling apart. Victoria is miserable but suffers in silence until she encounters the charming Joshua Larson while researching a new book.

She meets him in the most unconventional way—through a prisoner pen-pal website. Though Victoria is hesitant at first, she’s drawn to this intriguing, misunderstood man. He was charged with murder for his part in a bar fight, implicated for wearing the colors of his motorcycle club. She believes him when he says it was self-defense.

The two exchange letters and then talk on the phone. Joshua gives Victoria everything she’s been missing—support, confidence, affection, and passion.

Victoria can’t help but ponder a new life, leaving her awful husband and Canada behind for her new friend in the United States. After all, Joshua will be free in four years, and she’s beginning to believe that he’s the love of her life.

If she takes a leap of faith, will Joshua turn out to be her soul mate, or is he hiding something sinister?

Ten days ago, someone threw a brick through my front window. Nine days ago, someone keyed my truck right in my driveway. Eight days ago, someone spray painted the words ‘stay away’ across my garage door. That one really pissed me off. The jerk didn’t even have the courtesy to tell me what the hell I need to stay away from.

Wanting a security system, something with cameras so I can catch the vandal, I let my best friend hook me up with her cousin, a private investigator with the PRG Investigations team.

His name is Vance and I’ve secretly been in love with him for three years. He’s a badass, a little scary, incredibly hot, and he’s never showed an interest in me … until now.

One year ago, I became a missing person. I left everything behind—family, friends, school. It seemed like a good idea at the time. My only option, really, until I realized running from a police officer isn’t as easy as I thought it would be.

It’s been exactly three-hundred and sixty-five days since I left home, but I’m finally ready to take the step I should have taken a year ago. I’m done hiding. I’m done running. I’m going to take my life back.

It was supposed to be easy. A meeting with Jason Pierce, a private investigator, was set up for me. All I had to do was go to him, let him do his thing, and then I could go home, or so I thought.

That is, until I met Jason and things got … complicated.

Broken Beauty

Broken Beauty**Contains graphic content and the sensitive topic of rape and its aftermath. Not intended for teens under the age of 18.**

Sometimes bad things happen to beautiful people.

When socialite party girl Mia Abbott-Renou wakes up in a garden she has little recall of the previous night — except that she is naked…hurt…terrified. Not only has she been raped, but she knows one of her assailants: the son of a wealthy politician who happens to be her own father’s political ally.

Mia wants and needs justice. Except this privileged boy has an alibi and her father forbids her from going to the police. It’s a critical election year, one that his party might lose if his image as a doting father is soured due to Mia being labeled a lush or worse, promiscuous.

Devastated at not having the support of her family, Mia finds herself in a tug-of-war with her conscience over what to do, especially since she can’t remember exactly what happened that night. Worse, the men who attacked her have hurt several other girls, and Mia may be the key to stopping them.

Mia tries to forget, until the unthinkable happens, and she’s left reeling once again, faced with a new challenge that will force her to take more control of her life.

No longer able to pretend stress is the problem, Kaylee turns to the mysterious man who promised he can help, only to discover his plans for her may not involve her surviving the ordeal. She has nowhere else to go and no one else to trust. Does she take a chance on Nathan or risk facing Shadowman alone?

Excerpt

Jade was livid when she stormed past me and it was the cutest thing I had ever seen. It was also the most confusing thing I had ever seen. She shot me (or maybe — hopefully — it was to Dominic) an ice-cold glare. It was penetrating, and commanding, and my inner-wolf clawed at my stomach, wanting to run after her and make her happy.

“I know what you’re thinking,” Dominic said.

My blood ran cold. He couldn’t know that she was making me crazy, none of them could. If they knew … “What’s that?” I asked, glad that my voice sounded uncaring, and glanced his way.

He laughed. “That she’s adorable when she’s mad.”

“That she is,” I agreed, watching as Jade disappeared around the corner and Erika scowled after her. My heart started to beat again, and the knot in my stomach loosened. He didn’t have a clue. Who was that girl? The question echoed through my mind again, relentlessly. I just didn’t get it. I could take down an alpha, command an entire pack of twenty-nine werewolves to submit and grovel at my feet, but this … this … human girl could make me cringe with just one glance.

Erika turned to us with a big grin on her face and started over. I snapped my gaze to meet hers and said, “Don’t you have somewhere to be?” It came out harsher than I had intended, but it worked, and without a word, she backed up a step and then took off down the hall.

“Stay away from her,” Dominic said, casually, as if he was talking about the weather, and not really trying to tell me what to do. I had heard the line more than I could count in the last forty-eight hours, and each time I heard it, it only made her all the more interesting.

“That’s her call to make, not yours,” I retorted, keeping my tone just as light. He still refused to enlighten me about his obsession with Jade, and spending the weekend following her around hadn’t helped me figure it out either. The most I had gotten from that was confirmation that she missed him.

Dominic pushed off from the locker, and stretched his arms lazily over his head. He smiled a little. “She wouldn’t even look at you if she knew who you were.”

And now it’s time for the giveaway ….

International: 1 winner
Prize: Swag Pack with a coaster, keychain, and bookmark.

Cover Reveal and Excerpt: Waking Dreams, A Soul’s Mark Novella

Last month, I told you all that I was working on a Soul’s Mark novella all about Eric Carter. Well, I’m so excited to tell you guys … it’s finished and is now in the good hands of my editor. So, without further blabbing from me, today I’d like to share the cover of Waking Dreams, and a sneak peek chapter.

Enjoy!

Synopsis 
In The Soul’s Mark, Eric Carter felt a burning spark when he first laid eyes on Amelia Caldwell.  There was just something about her—something familiar—that pulled him to her.  The problem was acting on the spark was suicide.  Amelia was marked for his father.

Eric had been around for a long time, and before Amelia, life happened.  One day he was a simple rancher and then the next, he was thrust into a world that he had never known existed, and dreaming of a girl that he knew he couldn’t live without. 

In this novella, Eric Carter’s history is revealed.

Read on for a sneak peek chapter.  🙂

CHAPTER 1

Sterling snorted, and her left ear twitched to the side.  “What do you hear, girl?” Eric asked, stroking his mare’s thick neck.  His teeth chattered, and his breath puffed out in a cloud of white fog.  She jumped to the right, and pawed at the snowy ground, with jittery, nervous strikes.  Her ears pinned flat against her neck, and she glared at the tree line.

Eric searched the ice-encrusted trees for what may have spooked his horse, but he saw nothing.  Creaks and cracks from the trees drifted to his ears, as the branches sagged under the weight of the ice, but aside from that, the forest was silent and still.  He stroked her mane and cooed calming words to her, and after a moment, she began to settle.

Giving her a gentle nudge, he reined Sterling back to the fence.  A gust of frosty wind blew through the field, and a shiver prickled over his skin.  It had been a long day, rounding up the cattle that had gotten loose during the ice storm last night.  Now, if he could just find the broken place in the fence and mend it, he would finally be able to get back into the warmth of his ranch house.

Sterling walked along the rails slowly, picking her footing with care.  The sun shone brightly, winking upon the icy ground and making the field look like a sea of glittering gems.  Breathtaking.  It was sights like this that reminded Eric why he had chosen to live so far from the village, on his own, surrounded by nature.  His mother had called him a fool, not understanding why anyone would choose to farm and live an hour’s ride from civilization if they did not have to.  But to Eric, the peace and wilderness was like living a dream.

After a good twenty minutes, he finally stumbled upon the broken rails which were buried beneath a crusty layer of snow and ice.  Eric slid off of Sterling’s back, and gave her a pat as he unhitched the fencing wire from the saddle, and then he got to work, breaking off the crunchy layers of snow, and yanking out the snapped rails.

Once the three broken rails were down, Eric dug through the snow for the spares, which he knew were resting just below, against the fence.  He had just pulled the first rail free, when he heard Sterling snort and squeal.

“Settle down, girl,” he said.  He dropped the rail in place and turned, pacing towards her.  Her eyes were wild—panicked—and her nostrils flared.  He put his hands up and he crouched, slumping his shoulders, trying to make his bulky frame smaller and less intimidating.  The last thing he needed was for her to bolt, and leave him to walk back to the house in this frigid weather.  “Easy girl,” he murmured, as he continued towards her.

Sterling pranced around nervously, watching him with frightened eyes.  She snorted and began to back up with her ears lying flat against her neck.  Eric reached out for a rein, slowly, carefully, and just as his hand closed around it, she let out a piercing high-pitched roar, and then she reared.

Too close, a voice in his head shouted, and he scrambled back.  His foot caught a patch of ice and slid out from under him, and he landed on his back with a jarring thud, sliding closer to her and cracking his head against frozen ground.  Her hooves came down fast and hard, so close to him, that he was certain she would come down right on him.  He tried to roll out of the way, but he couldn’t move quickly enough.  And in a blink, she was on him, her hoof came down on his stomach, and then it jumped across and skidded down his right side, ripping at his skin and muscles.  She roared again, drowning out Eric’s wheezing cry.  For a spilt-second, she looked down at him; her eyes were wide with fear, and then she bolted, racing away through the field.

Eric couldn’t breathe.  He couldn’t move.  Black spots danced through his vision, and a stabbing pain shot through his head all the way down to his toes.  A warm wetness spread along the base of his skull, and his stomach convulsed with pain.

Time stood still.  His ears rung, and he couldn’t catch his breath.  He tried to sit up, but he couldn’t.  Even the slightest movement sent hot waves of pain coursing through his body, paralyzing him.  Get up! You need to get up! he told himself over and over, trying to coax his body to ignore the shooting pain and begging his mind to fight for survival.  But no matter how much his brain wanted to survive, his body was shutting down—giving up.

Eric didn’t know how long he had been lying on the ground, fighting against his body.  It could have been seconds, or it might have been hours when he heard the crunch of snow nearby.  It was excruciatingly loud, and the sound sent shockwaves through his head.  A small sense of hope gripped at his chest.  He forced in a burning breath, and opened his mouth to yell for help just as a shadow fell over him.  He blinked and shifted his gaze, looking for the source of the shadow, and he found it, but in that moment, all he noticed was the pair of blazing red eyes staring down at him.

“Demon,” Eric breathed and gasped, a wet and painful sound, and he coughed, choking on his own saliva.  He tried to scramble away, but the pain ceased him, rendering the effort useless. The demon smiled, which might have been meant as a friendly gesture, but the dagger sharp fangs that protruded from his mouth were anything but welcoming.

“What’s your name, son?” the demon asked, folding his arms over his thick chest.  His voice was like velvet, alluring and comforting.  Eric froze and looked back at him, mesmerized by the sound.  The demon was tall, at least four inches taller than Eric’s own six feet, and he had the same muscular frame.  He had no jacket or gloves, only wearing a thin short sleeve shirt and woven cotton slacks.  His skin was flawless, the color of ivory.

He chuckled, and his blazing eyes danced with amusement.  “Your name?” he repeated, and his smile grew.

Eric opened his mouth to speak, but the words were lodged in his throat.  He cleared it, and his voice shook as he answered, “Eric Carter.”

The demon watched him with a thoughtful expression for a moment, and his crimson eyes faded to sky-blue.  He bent down, crouching beside Eric in the snow.  He reached out, ripped open Eric’s coat, and lifted his shirt.  Blood pooled below his skin where Sterling had landed, blackening his stomach.

“Well, Mr. Carter, it looks like you are about to die,” he said with a matter-of-fact tone, as if it was common knowledge, obvious even.

“Yes, sir,” Eric replied breathlessly, wincing as the demon poked at his stomach.  For a moment, he wondered why he was not trying to run, but then he looked back at the angelic face of the demon, towering over him, and then down at his stomach, and he knew fear was pointless and running, impossible.  Death was inevitable.  Even if he could fight the pain and get to his feet, he would die from his injuries.

“Is that what you want?  To die?” he asked curiously, cocking his head to the side almost like a bird.

Eric thought about the question, as if there could be more than one possible answer to it, and then he shook his throbbing head from side to side and said, “No, sir.”  His voice was a gravelly whisper.   “Are you going to kill me?”

The demon cocked his head to the side again, and looked at him with an intensity Eric had never seen before.  It was a complicated look, filled with so many conflicting emotions that he couldn’t pinpoint exactly what any of them meant.  The demon sighed, a long and gusty sound.  His eyes grew wide and clouded, and the pleasant cerulean fogged as a milky film swallowed them.  He lifted his wrist to his mouth, biting down, and when he pulled it away, blood pooled on his skin.  He slid closer, cradling his wrist as if he was trying not to let any of the blood to spill onto the snow, and before Eric could comprehend what was happening, the demon pressed his wound against Eric’s lips and said, “Drink.”

Eric squirmed and gasped.  The movement sent shockwaves of pain coursing through his body.  The demon cupped the back of his head, and held him firmly, with unyielding strength.  Eric could feel the warm blood on his lips, seeping into his mouth, and his stomach rolled.  But then he tasted it.  Tangy and sweet and spicy.  It was delicious and disgusting all at once, and Eric couldn’t stop himself.  He opened his mouth, latching onto the demon’s wrist and drank, swallowing mouthfuls as quickly as he could.

The demon leaned in closer, but Eric didn’t care.  All he could think about was the mouthwatering blood that filled his mouth in a waterfall of goodness.  Skin tingling warmth spread through his body.

The demon dropped his hand from the back of Eric’s head, and then suddenly, his mouth was on Eric’s neck.  Eric felt the demon’s teeth sink into his skin, but he didn’t care.  Nothing mattered except tasting the nectar of his blood.

It was when he pulled his arm away from Eric’s mouth, that Eric noticed the demon’s teeth were no longer in his neck.  The disconnection felt cold, sending shivers along his skin.  His eyes became heavy and drowsiness smothered him.  He wanted to ask for more—demand more, anything to bring back the warmth and ease the pain of death, but his voice eluded him.  He stared into the milky eyes, pleadingly, but the demon just smiled a little.

The shivers came quicker, and Eric’s body convulsed from the cold.  The pain in his stomach faded.  It felt as if his mind couldn’t take it anymore and had given up—shut down.  Darkness grew around him.  Then, despite all efforts, he couldn’t keep his eyes open any longer, and they drifted shut.

Coming Spring/Summer 2013.
