Sara Hawthorne thought she had found the man of her dreams. He was caring, protective to a fault and desired her in ways she had only dreamed of. Her life was finally falling into place until a secret tore her new world apart. Reeling from a devastating betrayal, she ran from the only man who had broken down her defenses, making her feel alive after years of simply existing.

Alek Devera risked it all to keep her safe. His own happiness meant nothing if she wasn’t protected. But when Sara ended their relationship, the evidence of his betrayal strewn at her feet, he vowed to win her back, putting their delicate future into fate’s hands.

Will Sara give Alek the chance he needs to explain or will she choose to forge ahead with her simple life, leaving her heart in the shadows along with her dreams for a happily ever after?

Did you ever have something so tragic and frightening happen that you did everything in your power to convince yourself it wasn’t real? Have you ever been so paralyzed with fear you prayed that if you simply closed your eyes and slowed your breathing, everything would be fine?

Yeah, me too.

Only this time, none of that worked.

When Sara’s past comes back to haunt her, she’s enveloped in a world that only existed in her nightmares. Taken, her life flashes before her eyes as the one man who threatens her existence slowly lets her in on his plans for their future.

When the woman he loves is snatched from his life, Alek’s world is turned upside down. On his way to rescuing Sara, he’s faced with decisions that could change both of their lives forever. Will his uncertainty rip apart their fragile relationship forever or will he rethink what he’s about to do?

S. Nelson grew up with a love of reading and a very active imagination, never putting pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard until a year and a half ago.

When she isn’t engrossed in creating one of the many stories rattling around inside her head, she loves to read and travel as much as she can. 

She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and two dogs, enjoying the ever changing seasons.

She kisses me. This girl has got to stop this. I’ve got to stop this. I’m trying to stop it, but I can’t, and the kiss just grows and expands. Next thing I know, she’s flat on the bed and I’m on top of her, my hands in her hair, kissing her, pressing her into the mattress. Her fingertips skate up and down the surface of my shirt, and then I feel them slip underneath it. What was throbbing is now rock hard, and it’s difficult to breathe or sit still. God help me, I’m going down and she’s taking me. I’m trying to stop kissing her, and I can’t. This is too much, it’s just too much.

Other Books In The Series

Boring. Tiresome. Predictable. That’s how Trish’s husband of almost 30 years described her when he told her he was leaving. Trish sets out to drink her blues away when she literally stumbles onto a man who offers her the adventure of a lifetime. Trish has no idea what she’s walking into when she visits Bliss, the local BDSM club, but under Dave’s tutelage, she takes to the new lifestyle readily. And when she’s paired for two weeks with Clint, the one Dom in the place who can’t seem to stand her, sparks fly. He keeps her so confused that Trish isn’t sure what’s going on. She’s sure of one thing, however: She’s falling for the handsome, tortured soul, and she’s hoping he’s falling for her. But when a simple mistake puts her in harm’s way at his hands, Trish has to decide: Is it an adventure worth dying for? And when everything falls apart, can she manage to forgive him? More importantly, can he forgive himself and bury the ghosts that have been haunting him for too long? Adventurous Me is a fun, sexy, sweet, explicit, romantic romp that’ll leave you breathless and hopeful. And it’s definitely not for the under-18 crowd.   For Sheila, a lie is a deal-breaker. But what if it’s not a lie? What if it’s just not the whole truth? Being a popular Dom at the nicest BDSM club in town would be the top of the mountain for lots of guys, but for Steffen Cothran, it’s meant heartache. He lost someone he thought he might be able to have a future with to his best friend when Trish Stinson and Clint Winstead patched things up. He knows he wants a relationship, but so far he’s had trouble finding that one person, the one he knows he's meant to be with, to make that happen. That all changes when Trish and Clint walk into the club with Trish’s best friend, Sheila Brewster. Even though he's met her, he never really had much contact with her. But Clint has a plan: He’s looking for a Dom to protect Sheila in case her abusive ex-boyfriend manages to get paroled. And Clint happens to think that Steffen is a great candidate for that position. Steffen and Sheila’s relationship starts casually and quickly grows into a promising romance. But one question makes all the difference, and when Steffen doesn’t lie but doesn’t tell the whole truth with his answer, Sheila’s left wondering if she can ever trust anyone again. And when Steffen’s little omission shows up on his doorstep in full-blown chaos, the relationship he’d had such high hopes for is shattered, possibly forever. In the aftermath, Sheila sets a course for self-destruction that turns out to be more dangerous than anyone could’ve imagined. With no one to blame but himself, Steffen finds it hard to help a woman who won’t have anything to do with him. Two broken hearts. One huge mistake. A few really bad choices. And a lifetime of pain if things can’t be righted. It may be impossible to mend the broken trust, and their love could be lost forever. The second in the Me, You, and Us series following Adventurous Me, Steffen’s story in Unforgettable You is funny, smart, sweet, kinky hot, and heartbreaking. It’s a tale of what happens when you forget that there’s not a lot of difference between a lie and a partial truth, and what love really means when two people belong together. WARNING: This book contains explicit sexual situations in graphic detail. Not intended for readers under the age of 18. Reader discretion advised.      

About The Author

For as long as I can remember, I've been a writer . . .
and it has served me well. I wrote for local publications, wrote marketing and advertising materials, wrote for academic publications, and eventually grew jaded with the writing profession as I often watched others take credit for my hard work. I retreated into the world of 3-D art in the fiber and textile mediums and hid out in a world of colors and textures. But, truth is, there was always a story or two in my head. It wasn't until Nikki and I met in my imagination that I decided it was time to let those stories out, and I'm glad I did. My readers now get to enjoy the fruits of my imagination and, believe me, it runs wild!
On the personal side, I've been happily married to my lover and best friend for over thirty years, and I have two wonderful adult kids who've blessed me with two excellent choices of life partners. When I'm not writing, I'm playing with my three crazy little dogs, hiking in a local recreation area, kayaking, working out at the gym, tending my herbs, cooking, or doing some kind of research.
But I'd really rather be writing!

I was looking forward to see what Alicia had done with her first solo book.

I was really surprised and not in a bad way. This book is the type of book that pulls you in from the first page and has a grip on you that will not let go until you have finished.

We follow Eternity, a girl who at first had a sheltered life and then at the age of 14 years old, everything shatters around her. Losing her parents is an event that tears at her soul, but she becomes strong and looks after her younger sister.

You would think that after the event of loosing her parents, things couldn't get any worse, but they do. You feel for her as her life is changed for the worse and it is all out of her control. Forced into a world that she has never even contemplated existed. She doesn't lose any of her fight, and this might very well be a blessing in disguise.

Ryke Justice is a man who is so lost, so troubled, there are two sides to him.
You really do not mess with a man like him and it is a death wish that will come true.

Ryke meets Eternity and there is something about her that calms and soothes him. They seem to be made for each other.

Alicia has written a book where it is dark as well as dirty, and by no means a fluffy romance.
It contains certain themes that may be triggers for some, so beware of this before reading.

I loved reading every minute of this book and Alicia has written a read that keeps you interested as well surprising you at certain points.

A fantastic solo debut book, a storyline that is easy to follow and flows beautifully.

I look forward to the next book, as I really really, really need to know what happens next.

"Lost in that moment - when I stare into their eyes as their soul slips away and they take their last breath - is my aphrodisiac. Causing hurt feeds my monster. We bask in their blood. Each scream is my medication."

What happens when you are discarded from your perfect and privileged life and have to claw your self through each night just to survive till the break of the dawn. When the one person you trusted to keep you safe turns into the monster that now haunts your dreams? To be able to see an end of the horror as your eighteenth birthday fast approaches having scraped your way to expending freedom for the ordeal to begin anew and the reality is ...the horrors have only just begun. Meet Eternity who's charmed life shatters at fourteen when someone enters her home and kills her parents. Having had the rules drilled into her by her parents she follows the protocol and asks her Uncle for help. Almost four years on and Eternity has endured far more than most. As she bides her time, taking the abuse nightly until she can legally walk away as an adult and be sole guardian for her sister the past comes back to haunt her.

Sold. Into a world a rich and deprived world. A promise when she was only fourteen she is now nothing more than a broken promise that should have been wiped out on that fateful night. She has become an Angel. Follow the rules or be punished. Be available, be alluring and most of all please the highest bidder no matter the cost of your soul. No longer allowed to think without permission, just a walking fantasy for men that are powerful, wealthy and most of all hunger for all things illicit. This is Eternity's new life, after suffering her "training" at her Uncle's hand nothing can prepare her for the next six months. Her status a new angel means she is there to learn, to be forged into the perfect sexual fantasy by fear, pain and total control. The flames of anger, injustice and pain are hard to extinguish, deals made and broken crush her young girl dreams and she must find the strength to survive, to "Accept it. Like it. Live it." Yet the man with the wolf eyes calls to her in this living hell. He appears to be her solace, but will he make this Angel fall?

Ryke is the Illicit Angels very own brand of Justice. Dealing with anyone that breaks the rules or steps out of line Justice deals in blood, death and pain. His turbulent eyes reflecting his battle to calm the raging beast that demands the screams of anyone that dares to stand against him. Like a warrior of old he swaggers headlong into danger and emerges victorious and his boss uses his skills to maximum effect. Recognising his Angel, the broken promise of almost four years ago, Justice must abide by the club rules. Stepping up to train her and protect her as much as he can from the lifestyle she has awoken to, can he resist her for six months? His monster inside wants to feast on her fears and play with her whilst fiercely protecting her from anyone else but Ryke is battling his own demons from the past, searching for redemption in Eternity's battle to survive. Can she calm both the man and the beast? Can she survive his darkness?

This amazing first in the series is wickedly dark and brutal. Opening with blood and ending in a most magnificent cliffhanger revelation I enjoyed every word. Never shying away from the grim reality of the sex trade, abuse and non consensual acts at times I was reading between my fingers. But the scenes although are graphic are never over the top nor there just for shock value. Well written, dramatic and wonderfully descriptive I feel like I have run my finger tips over the carved Angels, walked through the corridors and sat down to watch the show. Eternity is strong and courageous, fighting to save her sister throughout. Ryke is a haunted man, his past has a right hold of him and he battled constantly with the beast that shares his body. Learning about him slowly through the one permitted question per day is captivating, slowly stripping back his layers. I need more!

A four and a half star #ShowMeYourBrave read.


“Welcome, Eternity.” His voice has a deep baritone, and it seems to vibrate deep in my bones. “Please come and take a seat.” His tone holds no room for argument and I find my feet taking me to sit in the chair across from him before my brain registers the motion. “I’m going to tell you how things work here. I don’t want you to speak. You will hear me out, and I will answer any questions you have after I’ve finished. Do you understand?” I nod my head, too afraid to speak. This man is pure evil. It emanates from him in dark clouds, covering me in shadows. He seems to loom over me but that’s impossible; he’s five feet away from me.
“I’m going to tell you a story. This is your story. When I’ve finished it, you will understand what we expect of you. Okay?” At my nod, he begins my story. “A long time ago, your father approached me. He made a deal with me, and you were the promise. You became club property, but this deal had conditions. I accepted all your father’s conditions and everything was running smoothly. That was, until you fucking disappeared. Vanished into thin air,” he says. Black Eyes takes a deep breath through his nose, and his jaw clenches tightly. “That deal was broken the minute you went underground. When you resurfaced, I came for what was mine.”
I try to process his words. If what he’s saying is the truth, then Carlos was right. My daddy did sell me. But he thinks I’ve been underground, whatever that means. If it means what I think it does, then he is crazy. This isn’t some mob story. This is my life.
“What was–” I don’t get to finish my question. Black Eyes stands, knocking his leather seat back against the wall. He slams his hands on his desk, and the noise bounces around the room, echoing. I hold my breath and wait for him to speak.
“I said you speak when I’ve fucking finished. You said you understood. If you don’t, little girl, then I will make you understand. I’ll fucking gag you. Keep your mouth shut, otherwise I’ll make you. We clear?” he growls. His voice rises, anger lacing his words. My breath hitches, but I remain silent. “Good girl,” he says in a calmer voice. “Illicit Angels is exactly what it implies in the title. Rich men pay an exorbitant amount of money to fuck beautiful girls – beautiful Angels, to be more precise. It’s indecent. It’s immoral. It’s illicit.”
“Rich men buy their way in but, occasionally, we allow a promise. A promise is a sale. We get the gift of a new girl. They gain entry. When a promise is broken, we end that promise. A long time ago, you should have been taken out. Wiped out,” he hisses. “You disappeared before that could happen. Now that you’re back in our clutches and I can see your potential, there are a few choices to make, Eternity. You see, I want that promise back, but a new deal had to be struck. I can’t just take a promise back. It would be bad for business. In this life, you should already be dead.”
My brain swirls with questions, but I’m frozen. Stuck in his story. What choices are there? My daddy wanted into this club? He wanted to cheat on my mum? Why would he want to come here? Surely, if he wanted to cheat, then he could have picked up a mistress. He didn’t need to sell me. He chose to. Hate and hurt ripples through my veins, hot and swift.
“You get six months before you’re claimed, Eternity,” Black Eyes says, drawing my attention back to him. “Six months to make a good impression. You can’t be a promise, but you can be a new Angel. For the first month, the bidders can only look at you and touch bare skin. The next two months, they can taste you. Give you untold pleasure,” he says nonchalantly. Black Eyes speaks as if we’re discussing the bloody weather, and his cool demeanour makes me want to scream. I don’t want goddamn pleasure. “The following three months they can give and receive pleasure. They’ll teach you how they like it and you will learn to submit to their every demand. Their every need. At the six-month mark, they will bid. The winning bidder will own you. You will become theirs to control, theirs to use, theirs to do with as they damn well please. I’m sure their first order of business will be to strip you of your virginity. That little lining inside will make you pussy gold. They’ll pay a pretty penny for you. There is one slight problem. Your promise wants you, and it seems he’s willing to stake his claim now. You have six months to make your decision, Eternity. You can persuade a bidder to want you enough to go up against Justice, or you can face the man himself and accept your fate. Justice won’t let you go. He’ll fight until you’re his. You have to decide which route to follow. Both will result in you being Justice’s, but you can fight for something better. I’m not sure you’re strong enough to withstand Justice’s darkness.”     
 Once he’s finished talking, he just stares at me, captivating me with his pitch black eyes. I want to speak, but I’m not sure if he’s testing me so I stay quiet. Black Eye’s smirks and nods his head.
“Good girl,” he praises. It was a test! “Do you understand what is to happen over the next six months?” I nod my head but still don’t say a word. “Do you accept these terms?” Black clouds swamp my mind. This is all too much. I don’t want any of this. I didn’t choose any of this, and I won’t accept it. But I’m too scared to answer him. A chill darts down my spine when anger twists his face at my non-response, and a frisson of fear, cold and brewing, unfurls in my stomach. “Do. You. Accept. These. Fucking. Terms?” he spits, each word separated and angry. When I still don’t answer, he storms around his desk to stand beside me. I flinch, expecting a blow, but none comes. I peek up at him and find him panting in rage. “Speak,” he growls.
“What if…” I pause, clearing my throat. My mouth is dry and terror is overwhelming me. “What if I don’t accept?” I ask, hesitantly. Black Eyes laughs at me, a sparkle of delight fills his soulless gaze.
“Well, here is your problem. I was made a promise, and that promise wasn’t fulfilled. I want the debt paid. I was promised a daughter, and I’m going to have one. I know Rivera has two daughters,” he drawls, pausing to let his words sink in. My eyes widen when I get where he’s going with this. I shake my head. This can’t be happening. “Little Nevaeh is acceptable as payment, but I thought you would want to accept the fate your father gave you rather than subject your baby sister to it. I’m more than happy to have Nevaeh in your place if you don’t accept.”
“No,” I gasp. Emotion, swift and violent, rushes through me. I’ve spent the last four years protecting my sister. I won’t let it all be for nothing. “I’ll do it,” I weep. “I’ll stay.”
“I thought you might,” he replies, smugly. “Now you just have to decide if you’re going to fight for your place or be consumed by Justice.”
“Who is Justice?” I whisper, brokenly.
“He’s someone who will destroy you, little girl. You’re not strong enough to be with him. Justice will swallow you whole.”
“Why?” I choke.

“Because you made him feel,” he empathises. “But I can see you’re not strong enough. If you break at this point, then you are too weak to go against him.”
