I hate where I am but I’m so lost with absolutely no idea where to go from here. I f*cked it all up royally.
You would think I had learned from my past, but no, my past slams back to haunt me at every turn and I’ve failed again.
I tried, I really did but I know I f*cked up because of my stupid wild side, craving sinful pleasures that I should never have started.
But out of all the things that have gone wrong, there is one thing I can put right.
And I’m going to.
It’s time to be the man I should have been from the beginning. I don’t want to live with these secrets hanging over me, but just how much do I reveal to keep the woman I love?
Sometimes the truth isn’t pretty and my secrets definitely aren't.
I knew it was too good to be true.
He was a player, a man-whore through and through and leopards don’t change their spots, do they?
What is he trying to hide? His evasive behaviour is a dead giveaway that he’s not telling me the truth.
Then, just when I think I know what I’m going to do, I get the shock of my life when I see Connor out with a person I never even knew existed.
Was our whole relationship built on secrets? After what I stumbled across and then what I saw, I wonder how much Connor has been keeping from me.
Left with no choice, I have to confront him. I need answers and I deserve answers and I will not leave until I have them this time.
The question is, does he love me enough to reveal the truth?
More importantly, will I survive it if he does?
** This book is the conclusion to Connor and Karina's story. **
Samantha Jacobey: Anyone who knows me could tell you, I am a friendly kind of person, never met a stranger and take up conversations any where at any time. I work hard, and my mind never seems to shut down, as I wake up often in the middle of the night with ideas pouring out and demanding to be dealt with. Of course that means much of my books were written in the middle of the night.
I grew up and still live in the great state of Texas where everything is bigger, where we have warm weather and a central location. I love my state, my town, and my family, which includes my four sons, my significant other, and many friends as well.
I have thoroughly enjoyed writing the books that are currently available and hope you will enjoy reading them just as much. And of course, there will be many more stories to come.
Meet Award Winning, Best Selling Author Cherime MacFarlane
Although born in New Orleans, I am proud to call myself an Alaskan. This has been my home since 1976. I have seen minus 40 degree temperatures, hauled water, made bear bacon, and I live in a cabin. I used a fishwheel to catch salmon coming up the Copper River. I was my second husband's chief mechanic's helper and roadie. I cut firewood on shares. I worked as a cocktail waitress during pipeline days in a small Lodge on the Richardson Highway.
My second husband, a Scot from Glasgow, was the love of my life. When I write Scots dialect, I experienced hearing it from my in laws. When my husband got on the phone to Scotland, after five seconds I could hardly understand a word.
We moved to the town of Wasilla to get warm. It seldom drops past minus 25 degrees here in the winter. I became a paralegal and worked for over twenty-six years for the same firm.
Alaska is my home. I never thought I would love it so much; I never want to leave. The beauty of Alaska is a draw I cannot resist. I love the people and the history. I have been captured by a place I came to under duress. Life plays some interesting tricks on one. My love and I were not apart over twenty-four hours for twenty plus years. I never wanted to be anywhere but with him. He was a man to run the river with and was my biggest fan.
Ella Medler is a U.K. author and free-lance editor. She writes fiction in more than one genre in a seemingly vain attempt to slow down her overactive brain enough to write non-fiction on subjects she knows a thing or two about. She also does not believe in the starchy use of English and ignores the type of rule that doesn't allow for a sentence to be finished in a preposition. Her books - whatever genre they may be - are action-driven. Well-developed, multi-layered characters are her forte.
Hates: her inner censor.

Now she spends her days turning her ideas into books. She lives in Marietta, GA with her husband.
I write erotic romance.
LJ SeXton: Born and raised in Michigan right outside of Detroit. I have two adult daughters and a chihuahua who is more needy then my girls ever were. I have loved to read and write fiction stories since I was in elementary school.
J.C. Clarke: An author? Yeah, well I'm getting there, hopefully.
I’m not really one for blabbing about myself, but I can give you a few starters, if you’re interested.
I’m a mum of four kids, two girls and two boys and I’m married to a wonderful man who puts up with my crap.
We live in an area near Southampton (UK) called the New Forest, which is very beautiful. There’s ponies, donkeys and wild deer and cattle all over the place, so it makes it very interesting living here at times.
I design for a living, but I am self taught, so I have a long way to go.
I’m a very down to earth thirty year old and yeah, I dabble with writing.

R. G. Williamson: I'm a happily married family man from the North of England, UK.
I like the feeling a good book gives me. I like to feel emotionally attached to the characters, I want to live their lives, I want to worry about them, laugh with them, cry with them, celebrate their achievements with them, love them, hate them, but most importantly, I want to feel something, anything.
I hope you enjoy my writing style and come away from my books feeling something!
Phoebe Parkes: After I got over the rejection of not becoming a Bond girl, I set my goals a little lower in the world of fast cars, sexy men and bank accounts that match their crotch sizes - yes, HUGE. I decided it was about time that all these glorious characters that I dream up needed to be brought to life. So Bond's loss is my gain, because I don't just get stuck with one 007 I get as many as I want and I can have them as gorgeous as I want them, as sexy as they deserve or sometimes even dark and disturbing but still ultimately phoaar. (Hopefully ☺)
I mean come on, who the heck really needs to 'bond' with Bond eh when you can dream up a whole cast of hot, muscled, sun-kissed, drop dead gorgeous males! When you can have men that all fall at your feet, worship your creative mind... lust after your curves and swoon at your utter gorgeousness... Yeah, that doesn't happen either, well not on the scale you're imagining anyway, wink-wink.
So, this is me, armed and dangerous, my mind honed and poised and ready with enough ammo to bring a horde of sexy mayhem. The stories in my head are finally being let loose. I apologise in advance for any loss of control, hernias or sheer frustration caused as a result of my imagination. Any legal action, (which would be completely unwarranted), should be taken up with the person who was the Bond Girl dream wrecker, in other words, it really isn't my fault so my conscience is clear. ;-)
Finally shutting up (yes me) and leaving you with a more serious thought, please sit back, relax and enjoy my over-indulgent brain cells as they go into over-drive to bring you some British shenanigans, done the Phoebe Parkes way. Enjoy ☺
