It’s come down to this…

Kendall sacrificed herself for everyone… but her journey isn’t over.   Alive and alone in the Shadow Dimension, Kendall has surrendered hope. But those who love her have not. Rescue is not beyond possibility. Saving Kendall is only the first battle. Can she save the world or is it already too late?

KindleLogo Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogogoogle_play_logo_002_002

In the last book Kendall has sacrificed herself for her family and friends. Now her existence is in the Shadow Dimension. She gave up hope of Malcolm coming for her a long time ago. But surprise!

This is a favorite scene.

“Your name is Kendall Madison Fallon. You’ve also had the last name Yates. You’re my wife. You weren’t always. Once, you were married to a guy named Levi. You and he have three children together— Grayson, Dexter, and Molly. They’re waiting. We have a baby. She’s just two weeks old. You named her Abigail. She’s … beautiful.”

I put out my hand. “Stop it. Stop talking.” I couldn’t breathe. His words were daggers stabbing at my heart. “What is this pain? What is this you’re doing to me? And why would you want to? Who sent you here to do this to me?”

“I’m not here to hurt you. I’m here to bring you home. That pain? It’s probably from the memories trying to resurface. I don’t blame you for letting them go. One hundred years? They’d drive me mad. You jumped here to save us all. You did it. You plugged the hole. You sacrificed yourself. But I’m not done with you. I’ll never be. There are three choices. You take my hand, and you come home. I grab your hand, you come home, and the resistance hurts Victoria. Or I stay here with you.” He took another step closer. “If you insist on option three, we’ll make our daughter an orphan. I also don’t know what will happen with the battle. We need to kill the Master. I’m the guy to kill him. Maybe Ross can do it. I don’t know. So what’s your choice, my love? Because I will not live without you. It’s always Malcolm and Kendall. I found you here. I will not lose you. We live. We die. Together.”

I covered my eyes like I could make him go away. “Why would you do this?”

“Because I love you. Kendall, open your eyes.” I obeyed him. For one hundred years, I’d not taken a command from anyone. Yet he told me to do something, and there I was following his command. “Take my hand. The rest of it? We’ll figure it out. Your memories aren’t gone. They’re there. You’re feeling them right now. Come back with me. There are people who will help you.”

“Help me?” I stepped away from him. “That’s hope talk. That’s what makes people lose their minds. I won’t do that.” My hands shook, but I ignored them. “You have The Master up there? He was once a leader here. That’s what they tell me.”

He put his hand out in front of me. “He’s a very bad opponent. He did this. We need to kill him, and I’m not sure I can without you.”

Kendall has changed and the lengths they go to help her regain herself leave her conflicted.

She finds out a lot about herself and the others as they prepare for the final battle.

A page turning, emotional, conclusion to this fabulous tale!

It’s Here! Wings Of Artemis #4 – Reclaiming Their Love By Rebecca Royce


 

Reclaiming Their Love
Wings of Artemis Book 4
By
Rebecca Royce

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

Diana Mallory lost everything when her five husbands were taken from her on the other side of the galaxy.

Back on the Milky Way side of the black hole, she’s deep into the war for Mars Station. Diana will do anything for her family, but every day is a living hell without the loves of her life. She assumes she’ll never see them again. But, Damian, Sterling, Cash, Lewis and Judge are on their way to her. When they find her they won’t let war, allegiance, or time differentials keep them from reclaiming their love.

Please note—this book contains the ending to Diana’s story, five hot men who love her, and a race through space you’ll never forget.

**Content Warning: Reverse Harem, Intense**

KindleLogo Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogo

As Diana makes her way to the ship to join her family at their secret hideaway. She thinks she sees a familiar face. Now this is nothing new to her as she thinks she sees her husbands all the time. This time however it is different.

Oh how I sniffled, this is a favorite scene.

It was … him. It … was Damian.

How was he here? My heart rate kicked up till it pounded so loudly it drowned out all other sounds. I ran. I couldn’t speak, couldn’t call his name. My boots struck loudly on the floor with every move I made. I slammed into someone, couldn’t even apologize, and grabbed Damian’s arm.

He whirled around, facing me. Recognition flooded his expression. I knew this man— love, wonder, awe, disbelief— they all played in his gaze until utter joy took their place. “Di-Diana.” His voice shook, and then his arms were around me.

“Diana.” He said again, tugging me close, so tightly I could hardly breathe. “We thought… when we docked today, everyone was leaving. We thought you were gone. Judge was working on some plans … but I told them I had to give it a last look. You’re here. You’re here.

I breathed him in. He smelled … right. One of my guys. My love. Two years without him and we’d almost missed each other. “Damian. Damian. Damian.” I kept saying his name, almost unable to utter anything else. There were things … I had to think, I had to say. “I’d just thought— literally seconds ago— that I’d never see you again, not ever.” A sob threatened, and I shoved it away. I had to think, I had to make myself function through the most elation I’d ever experienced. “We-we have to get out of here now. It’s not safe. Where are the others? I don’t know what to do. I think I’m in shock.”

He nodded, his eyes narrowing. “The others are on Artemis. Come on. I’ve got you, Diana. I’ve got you.”

I grabbed my communicator and sent my mom a message. It was brief, unclear, but I hoped she got the gist that I had found one of my husbands and was getting on Artemis. I’d meet her on the planet. Or maybe I said nothing coherent. I didn’t know. Things were somehow both fast and slow; had the Station tilted?

Damian took my hand. His strong fingers held me tight, anchored me when things spun around us. “How did you get here?” I shouted to be heard over the crowd.

“Later.” He yelled back. “I-I can’t think. If you’re not safe, I’ll get you safe. Please.”

His words told me that I wasn’t alone in my brain shutting down to basic functions. Would it come back? I really didn’t know. I never could deny his please. We walked for what felt like forever but eventually made into the docking station. Artemis was three-quarters of the way down. Like they suddenly popped into existence, Sterling and Cash were talking outside of the ship, and I could hardly trust my own eyes. There they were. They were … there. I…

Sterling saw me first, or maybe he heard my heartbeat— I didn’t know which. He leapt into a run and had his arms around me in seconds. I hung on. What was he saying? Sorry? What was he sorry for? I pressed my forehead to his chest. His heart beat and beat and beat. I could hear it. Didn’t that make it real? And then I was being passed into Cash’s waiting hug. He said some things too. Love. Yes, I loved him, too. But I couldn’t think.

“Cash.” I touched his face. He felt real, not a hallucination.

I’d dreamed this moment a million times. I wanted to be in it. I shook my head. Why couldn’t I focus?

Lewis and Judge were suddenly there too. They were all hugging me, all touching me. There was so much noise.

I breathed out. “Hi.”

“She’s going to faint.” Lewis’ voice pushed through. “Let’s give her some air.” His arm was around my waist. “Come inside. Sit down. Someone go get her water.”

I was soon on one of the couches from Orion. It didn’t belong on Artemis. It was supposed to be on the other side of the universe. But then again, so were my husbands. They must have brought furniture onto Artemis. Strange, small details made their way into my mind while large, important things couldn’t get through. A blanket was around me, water in my hand, and they were all snuggled near me, either on the couch or the floor next to it.

I held out my hand. “We have to get off this station. I need to think. I keep saying that because it’s true. Um, I’m so happy you’re here. You can’t know.” My voice shook.

“I…”

Sterling kissed my cheek. He sat to my left. I leaned on Cash, who stroked my arm. Damian was right in front of me, kneeling down. Lewis and Judge were each touching my knees. They were so beautiful.

“Where do you want to go?” Sterling kissed my cheek again. “I’ll put in the coordinates.”

I had them memorized. My mother had insisted. Either I told him or Sterling had learned to read minds. He disappeared into the cockpit, likely to enter the designated coordinates and get us launched. Lewis took his place.
Rebecca Royce. Reclaiming Their Love (Kindle Locations 139-183). After Glows Publishing.

So begins a race across space, a race to be safe. Away from Mars Station and Sandler.

A sexy and hot reunion, as they learn each other again. Fun with family and more stress as yet more threats make themselves known.

A wonderful conclusion for Diana’s story, but I know there are more books ahead in this world of Artemis.

Release Blitz! Two New Novels by Ripley Proserpina! Finding Nora and Finding Valor


 

 

Finding Nora
Searchers Book 1.5
By
Ripley Proserpina

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

KindleLogo ibooks-logo-150x150

Cleared by the police of any wrongdoing in a school shooting, Nora’s finally looking to her future with hope. She and her five guys are ready to move on with their lives, and take their unconventional relationship to the next level.

But not everyone is ready to accept her innocence. Viewed as a monster by the people in her small town, and put in a frightening position by the people claiming to help her, Nora has to make a choice between what she wants, and what she believes is best for the men she loves.

Will her budding relationship be strong enough to survive these new challenges, or will it all be too much, and she’ll be alone again?

Still recovering from her injuries, Nora needs to contribute to the household.

When an opportunity comes to her through Tyler a friend of Cai’s she listens carefully to Dr. Murray as he describes the study he is involved in and the benefits to her, housing on campus and classes to reach her goal of a teaching degree.

She is going into this with her eyes open but the first interview and coffee with the Dr.’s colleagues ends with an experiment that ends badly.

The guys don’t like her going off by herself after an unpleasant confrontation with a reporter Seok escorted her to the appointment and returned to pick her up.

This is a favorite scene.

“Let’s go.” Glowering at the men, Seok wrapped his arm around her, leading her down the street.

She gave a little squeal when he brushed against one of the wounds on her side. The seatbelt had dug into her with such force her blood pulsed beneath the older injury. She’d have a hell of a bruise later.

“Are you okay?” he stopped, putting his hands on her shoulders, and bending his knees a little bit to see her face.

“My side,” she whispered. “The seatbelt dug into it.”

“Can I look?” She glanced back over her shoulder where Dr. Murray’s team still stood, but nodded.

Slowly, he lifted her sweatshirt and t-shirt, hissing in a breath when he saw the clear contact abrasion of the seatbelt against her skin. The healing bullet graze looked okay, it wasn’t bleeding, but the abrasion went right across it.

“He did this?” he asked, voice shaking with anger.

“I didn’t realize.”

He lowered her shirt gently, and placing his hand on her cheek, leaned forward to kiss her on the forehead. One moment he held her, then he took off like a shot. A blur of movement, he sprinted down the road and leapt at Nils.

The man let out a soft, “Omph,” when Seok tackled him. He managed to land one blow before Grant and Dr. Murray wrestled him off Nils.

“You fucking asshole,” he said, shaking out his fist.

Shock kept her in place, but now she rushed to him, holding his arm, putting her body between him and the team.

“She’s fucking injured. What is wrong with you?” He was genuinely confused. “Is this how you run your lab?” he asked Dr. Murray. “Because I’m sure the college is going to wonder about this. You want her to trust you? To work with you? Maybe you should try a little goddamned compassion.”

The doctor shook his head, while Nora kept her eye on Nils. A dark bruise formed on the man’s cheek, and she waited for him to retaliate. Seok packed a punch, but he didn’t seem bothered. It was weird.

“I’m sorry, Seok. Honestly.” “

I really am sorry as well, Seok,” Nils added. “Look, if punching me makes you feel better. Do it again. I was wrong. It wasn’t funny.”

“You’re goddamn right it’s not funny.” Turning his back on the others, he strode to her. Her body jerked when she tried to go to him. Jessica held her arm. Distracted by the fight, she hadn’t realized the woman’s hands were on her. When she tried to move again, Jessica let her go.

“I want to go home,” she told him. “Can we please go?”

Pressing a kiss to the top of her head, he held her to his chest. “You okay?” His voice was calm, but she knew him well enough now to catch the fury.

“I’m pissed and my side hurts.”

He stepped away from her, tracing her face with his gaze. It dropped to her lips, and he leaned in, kissing her. He wrapped his arms around her before burying his face in her neck, and giving her a soft kiss.

“Let’s go.” As they got out of earshot, he took her hand. “Will you tell me what happened?”

Leaning her head on his arm, and squeezing his hand tightly, she nodded. Seok, she could trust. She’d tell him anything he wanted to know.
Ripley Proserpina. Finding Nora (Kindle Locations 656-687). After Glows.

Personally I wouldn’t have given the man the time of day and would have reported the whole thing to the Dean. That’s just me though.

Things get weirder and weirder with this study and Nora gets more frustrated not only with it, but with her inability to get a job.

Nothing seems to be going right except her relationships with her men. However that has it’s moments too.

Suspenseful, romantic and enough going on to keep you turning the pages to see what happens next.

Finding Valor
Searchers Book 2
By
Ripley Prosperina

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

KindleLogo ibooks-logo-150x150

Forgiveness is out of reach…

Nora’s relationship with Ryan, Seok, Apollo, Matisse, and Cai is everything she could want. Never believing she’d fall in love, the acceptance they offer her is the only thing standing between her and a world that still hates her, no matter her innocence. Falling into a routine with the guys, she finally lets herself relax and dream about the future.

Until the past catches up with them…

Suddenly, Ryan’s entire future is at stake, and a man from his past, one with good reason to hate him, arrives to take the things he’s worked so hard to build. Rather than fight, Ryan wants to submit, weighed down with the guilt he believes he deserves. Pushing Nora away, he distances himself from her and his friends, placing everything they have at risk.

Can Nora help Ryan heal? He has to believe the person he’s become is nothing like the man he was, but all he sees in the mirror is evil. Will he ever believe he’s earned her love and the chance to be happy?

Finding Valor centers on Ryan. Ryan status for the local Law School has gone from early admission to waitlisted. His calls are not returned and finally Nora convinces him to go in person to see the Dean.

What he finds out is disturbing on a lot of levels yet he feels he deserves the censure and to be waitlisted. Although the question remains, who dug into his past to sabotage him.

This is a favorite scene between him and the Dean.

“Mr. Valore,” she began. “Our school’s mission may seem antiquated, but it has a purpose. We want to graduate lawyers who are truly guided by a moral and ethical code.”

“I understand.” He was not the kind of student they were looking for.

“Any student who may not meet this standard is immediately suspended or waitlisted while an investigation takes place.”

The irony of a school requiring their students to hold themselves to a higher standard, suspending— or in his case waitlisting— accused students before asking for evidence, was not lost on him.

“I’ve spoken to your professor, Erik Bismarck, and he assures me you would be a boon to our program.”

Some of his tension left him. Was there hope?

“He told me about your work with Legal Aid and your support of the accused school shooter, Nora Leslie. You apparently went above and beyond your role as intern. You let her live with you when she was evicted and lost her job?”

“Yes.”

“Mr. Valore, we will be taking a closer look at your case, but until then, you remain on the waitlist. CCSL has a student committee who will have the final say on your admission. They put you on the waitlist.”

“Someone on the committee wanted me to be waitlisted?”

“Your name was brought to the attention of the committee, but the committee is not one person. It is not an entity out to get you, Mr. Valore. I promise.”

“Of course not… But so I understand, the student committee has the final say on all incoming students?”

“No,” she clarified. “The student committee is one part of the admissions process. However, they do have the final say on any student who has been waitlisted or might be expelled.”

“Dean Williams,” he ventured. “The thing I don’t understand is, who would have brought me to the attention of the committee?”

“Vermont is a small state. It isn’t hard to run into someone who knows your story. I can’t go to the grocery store without meeting a cousin of a cousin of a cousin.”

His mind went a mile-a-minute, trying to think of someone who knew of his past, who believed he was a liar, and who knew of the requirements of CCSL.

Someone had it out for him; someone wanted him to get what he deserved. Because he did deserve to be waitlisted. What right did he have to move on with his life? No matter who he was now, he’d once stolen someone’s future.
Ripley Proserpina. Finding Valor (Kindle Locations 335-360). After Glows.

Nora has unwittingly met the person responsible for Ryan’s problems. It throws a bit of a wrench into their relationships as does an enlightening session with Dr. Murray and his cohort Dr. Chase. Love that Nora catches something here as well.

Communication is key in this form of relationship and while all the guys know each others secrets Nora does not.

The time has come to see if this relationship really can work.

Piecing together the mystery of the waitlist, a life-threatening illness and more weirdness thanks to the study. All these challenges and some really sizzling scenes will keep you from putting this book down.

I can’t wait to see what’s next for these intriguing characters.

Meeting Them
Wings of Artemis Book 3.5
By
Rebecca Royce

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

Paloma Delacroix has suffered greatly for a mistake in her youth. She dreams of a future she wonders if she can ever have. But for all her imagination, Paloma can’t predict what is about to happen. Thomas, Clay, Keith and Quinn McQueen are men with secrets and a past that keeps them on the run. But when life explodes around Paloma, the McQueens will be all that stands between Paloma and death.

Her sweet nature and strength make them believe the universe might not be as awful as they’ve come to believe it. But is it too late for all of them? Or can love win the day?

**Content Warning: Reverse Harem, Intense**

KindleLogo Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogogoogle_play_logo_002_002 smashwords_logo

In Crashing Into Destiny, Diana reminisced about her friend Paloma being sent to The Sisters Of The Universe and them writing back and forth. This is Paloma’s story.

As Clay McQueen tries to get the Sister Sovereign to agree to a free robot with the capability to counterattack, to scan the skies around the premises. Paloma is behind the curtain half listening to the exchange while contemplating her own future. She has one more year and then she will be free of this hell her family exiled her to.

She is surprised when the Sister Sovereign instruct to her escort Clay from the premises. Frustrated he tries to engage Paloma in conversation. He needs to convince the Sister an early warning system of an attack would be beneficial to them. When she breaks all the rules and saves him from certain death she is instantly punished for her efforts in spite of the circumstances and her injury.

Appalled Clay tries to stop the beating and later returns with his brothers to try to convince her to leave with them. All to no avail. Then the attack comes and Paloma runs in the direction of the only people she has an acquaintance with, the McQueen brothers.

This is a favorite scene.

I must have run the entire night. Thomas had said to go north, and I did. They were strangers. They’d offered to help. Maybe they would now. I didn’t know where to tell them to send me. But anywhere had to be better than here. I was cold, wet, covered in ash and blood. There was nothing between the Sisterhood and Grayland. I reached the town in the middle of the night. No one was around to ask about the McQueens, but I didn’t need any assistance. I saw a lit cabin atop the hill. I stumbled toward it and managed to knock once before I fell over.

The door swung open, and the twins stood over me. They seemed to react all at once; Keith pulled me into his arms while Quinn touched my forehead.

“Paloma.” Quinn moved out of the way to bring me inside. “Clay and Tommy made their way to the Sisterhood to look for you, to see if they could help. I’m so happy you came here. Put her on the couch, Keith.”

“That’s what I’m doing, Quinn.” He didn’t, exactly. Keith sat on the couch with me in his arms. I wasn’t going to complain. I shook so much I might fall if he put me down. “Are you hurt? She’s shaking really badly.”

Quinn nodded once. “I’m going to get ahold of the doctor. Keep her there with you.”

“Not going anywhere.” Keith smoothed his hand over my cheek. “Does it hurt anywhere?”

“Everywhere. I’m sorry to put you out. I had nowhere to go. I didn’t know what to do.”

He shook his head gently. “This was what you should have done.”

The door swung open with a bang. Thomas and Clay strode into the room, both looking worse for the wear. Seeing me, they stopped.

“Oh thank the universe.” Clay dropped to his knees in front of me. “She’s here. Everyone is dead there. No one lived. They got everyone. And all I could think about was her. How we left her there.”
Rebecca Royce. Meeting Them (Kindle Locations 181-197). After Glows.

Lots of revelations in this one. Especially from the guys, they have a lot of secrets and their obsessions are the product of those.

Paloma herself has to face her past more than once and a surprise comes as their stories coincide.

A journey for all of them to find what they really need and want out of their lives.

Phoenix Everlasting
Cascade Series Book 2
By

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

Single-mom, Kendall Madison has a lot on her plate. Her ex-husband wants back in the picture, her three children have all developed super-natural powers, and the love of her many lives wants to have another go at their forever.

She has a team to lead and homework to manage. The shadows are growing in strength and the battle she was brought back to life to fight has begun. How is a woman supposed to manage all of that and not fall apart? Kendall needs to figure out how to cope or the entire world will fall apart. Or maybe it already has and was always meant to. If she can find the missing phoenix there will be a chance…the only problem is no one has seen it twenty years…

KindleLogo Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogo

A demon invades Malcolm’s date at Victoria’s party for her new born son. After ripping it out of her, Kendall ignores Malcolm and turns her attention to the problem at hand. What is the Phoenix and how do they get it back?

Kendall is obviously going to remain conflicted between her emotions and what must be. Her ex-husband wants to come back and Malcolm really wants things the way they used to be between them.

There is a lot of emotion in this book as Kendall traces her steps from the past. She has to remember it all and as she does it leads to an interesting encounter with airport security. This is just a part of that, I don’t want to spoil anything.

The ghost hissed. “Oh, you’re in trouble. I don’t want any part of this.”

No problem. I flung my hand in front of me, sending the ghost to wherever his next destination would be.

“That’s a family heirloom.” Levi called over the yellow line. “Could you put that away, please? That’s very valuable to my family. It’s obviously not a bomb.”

All eyes turned to Levi, and I groaned.

“Sir.” The TSA man pointed a finger at him. “We’re going to need you to back up.”

He held up his hands. “Come on man. I’m behind the yellow line. That’s my wife’s bag you’re messing with. I want the heirloom put back in the box. And I apologize for saying bomb. But it isn’t one.”

I rubbed at the headache forming between my eyes. Heaven help me from men trying to be helpful.

“This didn’t show in the scanner. Is the box it’s in made out of lead?”

I really didn’t know. I hadn’t examined the box to check. “My late grandmother stuffed it in a box,” I lied. “I don’t know anything about the box.”

The man held up the box. “This box is going to have to stay off the plane.”

Was lead now a prohibited item for air travel? I didn’t want to argue; I simply wanted to go. “Okay.”
Rebecca Royce. Phoenix Everlasting (Kindle Locations 863-875). After Glows.

Shadows turn up in the most unexpected places, and the group faces more and more challenges to their strength. All as they find the answers about surrounding the Phoenix.

I can’t wait for the next and final episode!

Winter Blog Review

Imagine you did something incredibly brave and then were accused of somehow perpetuating that something. Called a person of interest in the case.

That is what happened to Nora, all because at one point in her life the one who did the deed and died was her foster brother.

As a result while she is in the hospital recovering from the gunshot wound inflicted on her, she loses everything. Her job, her apartment, all her belongings and her reputation all of it gone in a blink of an eye.

Ryan is her lawyer’s intern. When he discovers her plight he approaches his roommates with a request for her to stay with them. Seok, Apollo, Cai and Matisse agreed although Seok seemed to have some reservations.

Here is the scene when they all meet. It is the first clue we get of what might come to be.

“This is Apollo Morris, Matisse Boudreau, and Cai Josephs.” Ryan pointed to each person.

The first guy, Apollo, was one of the biggest people Nora ever met. She hoped the chair was strong enough to hold him. When he stood, she bet he would tower over her by at least a foot. His shoulders were twice her width, but his smile was open and friendly. His white teeth stood out in his dark-skinned, handsome face. He had a dimple in one cheek, and dark framed glasses he pushed into place before letting one arm drop onto his lap. His other arm was propped on the table, giving her a view of his chest. His muscles stretched the seams of his t-shirt to the ripping point.

Matisse Boudreau, pale and somehow graceful, sat between Apollo and Cai. He had long everything: a long, aquiline nose, long, dark hair curling around his chin, and long legs clad in dark jeans and motorcycle boots. Taken in parts, he was not handsome, but put together, the pieces fit like a puzzle. He wasn’t classically handsome, but his appearance was arresting.

Her gaze finally came to rest on Cai, and she was blinded by gold: golden hair, golden skin, golden eyes. He was healthy and strong, like he drank milk and got plenty of sun. His hands were clasped in front of him, and she could see the muscles in his arms contract as if he was squeezing his hands together. He watched her curiously, but not in the same way Apollo did. Apollo seemed friendly, while Cai and Matisse were wary.

“Nice to meet you,” Apollo ventured, getting her attention.

“Thank you for letting me stay.” She smiled at him gratefully.

A door snicked shut behind her and she turned, hoping this was the last person she had to meet, because she needed to sit. Her muscles trembled, and she could feel a clammy sweat trickling along her spine.

“This is Seok Jheon, he owns this house.” She met the dark, serious gaze of the final roommate. She searched his face for some sort of emotion, some hint of what he felt at having an interloper in his home, but he gave nothing away.

“Hello,” he said to her, his voice slightly accented, the vowels and consonants rounded.

He was tall, but not quite as tall as Ryan. The bright morning sun highlighted hair dyed cherry- red. His style was… unique. He wore red skinny jeans, and a strategically torn t-shirt revealing bright splashes of color. He reminded her of a sunset, bright but hinting at something darker.

“Hello,” she answered, her voice slightly breathless as the pain got worse. “Thank you so much for letting me stay here.”

He nodded at her, as if saying, yes, I allow you to stay here, and I can disallow it at any time. Her stomach started to roil, body screaming at her if she didn’t rest soon, then it was going to punish her.

“I’m sorry,” she voiced to no one in particular. “I need to sit.”

Voicing the need made it happen, and her knees buckled. She heard a sound like every chair suddenly scraped against the floor, but Ryan reached her first. His arms scooped beneath her legs and he lifted her effortlessly against her chest.

“I’m taking Nora to her room.”

She risked a glance at the room and found each of the guys stood, ready to catch her.
Prosperina, Riley. Finding Honor(Kindle Locations 849-874).After Glows Publishing. Kindle edition.

What none of them really expected was to fall in love with her. Nora touches each of them in a different way. So now where she had no one, she has five men who will protect her.

But can they all be in a relationship together?

A truly great beginning to a series I know I will be following. Full of conflicting feelings, protective men, and a woman who’s strength is inspiring.
