Cover Reveal: Lasting Fate by Charisse Spiers

“Lasting Fate” by: Charisse Spiers Cover Reveal

Mockingbird Promotions Lasting Fate Cover RevealMockingbird Promotions Lasting Fate Cover Reveal

Lasting Fate Excerpt:

Preston
I pull into the drive and the garage is open. I’ve told Kinzleigh to keep it shut. It’s a nice area, but that doesn’t mean we don’t get strays from time to time looking for easy access to steal. Kinzleigh’s mom should be here soon to help her with the baby for a few days. Maybe she’s already here. I could use her help so I can get some work done. I’m swamped with projects and a new baby is more work than I thought. I try to give Kinzleigh a break when I get home.

Pulling under my garage door, I park and kill the engine. I grab my satchel that I take back and forth from the office and step out of my beamer. It’s been a long day. I grab the knot of my tie and pull, loosening it. When I get to the door my heart drops to my stomach. It’s cracked. My first thought is that someone has broken in. I push it open and walk inside.
I drop my bag at the door and pick up pace when I hear Bryce screaming at the top of his lungs. A fear I’ve never known races through my body. What if she’s hurt? “Kinzleigh,” I call out throughout the house. I get no response. When I make it to the living room Bryce is lying in his bassinet screaming and Kinzleigh is lying on the couch staring off into space like a zombie, ignoring him.
His face is blood red like he’s been crying for a while. I reach over and pick him up, pulling him to my chest. “Hey, buddy. Shh, shh, shh. It’s okay,” I say as I rock him. It’s not helping. He’s obviously hungry or wet. Hell, I don’t know. I’ve never had a baby before and I’m a guy. I would get cranky if I was hungry. Kinzleigh is breast-feeding, so I don’t know what I’m supposed to do.

“Kinzleigh, when is the last time you fed him?” I look over at her, still attempting to calm him down. My ears are stinging from his constant crying. I can’t think. She has not even acknowledged I’m in the room. “Kinzleigh, what the fuck?” The only type of response I get from her are tears that fall from the corners of her eyes and they trickle down her nose before dropping onto the leather of the sofa.
“I can’t,” is all she says and goes back to staring off into space. What the hell does that even mean, she can’t?

“You can’t or you won’t? What happened to you? Are you sick?” He is still screaming, so I reach in the bassinet and get his pacifier, hoping it calms him a little until I can figure out what the hell I’m supposed to do now.
“I can’t,” she says again. She’s not even looking at him. I begin walking towards her in an attempt to see what’s wrong and get her to feed him. She closes her eyes before I get there. “Please don’t. I can’t hold him. Please, take him somewhere else. Please…” I don’t understand. She was fine when I left for work. I try to give him his pacifier. We don’t have any formula, because she wanted to feed him naturally. How does everything change so drastically in twelve hours?

He takes it for a second before he figures out nothing is coming out of it and spits it back out, now mad as hell. I can’t deal with this shit right now. I’m worried about her, because she’s not acting right, but I have to get him calmed down first. Pulling out my phone from the pocket of my slacks, I hit one of the contacts in my immediate access list. It rings for a minute before the line picks up. “Preston? It’s seven thirty and the sitter just left. Do I need to call her back? Is that Bryce? Is he okay?”
Her voice is drowned out by his crying. I walk out of the room with the phone up to my ear. “Hey, Macie. I need your help. It’s an emergency. It’s about Kinzleigh. You can bring Talon.”
“Anything, Preston. Is she okay?”

I peek my head back in the door. She’s still lying on the couch in the exact same position she was when I left. She is still staring at the wall blankly, no emotion registering on her face. “I don’t think so. I came home and Bryce was screaming in his bassinet. She’s just lying on the couch in a vegetative state. She won’t hold him. I have no idea when she’s fed him last. Can you bring some formula?”
“I think I know what’s wrong with her. I’ll be right there. Give me fifteen minutes.” She doesn’t wait for an answer before disconnecting the call. I slide the phone back in my pocket and begin bouncing him slightly while I pat his back. His tiny head is resting against my cheek.

“It’s okay, buddy. We’ll get your mama fixed, okay? Don’t worry. She must have a reason for letting you cry, she has to. You’ll love her. She’s kind of hard not to love.” His cry is dying down, from the exhaustion I’m sure, but not stopping completely. I stand in the doorway watching her. I’ve never in my entire life seen her like this, not even when her grandmother died. It’s like her soul has been sucked from her body, leaving nothing but a hollow woman lying in this big house.
I’m scared to know what that means. I need to talk to Macie. I have a strange feeling I’m losing her. I’ve never been in love with a girl like I’m in love with Kinzleigh, and I never will be again, but I can’t stand seeing her like this. If this is going to be the girl she becomes, then I’ll have to make another choice, one that is going to forever destroy me for a woman. I won’t trap her. We were happy before he came back. I won’t watch her disintegrate and become lifeless to preserve my own happiness.

The realization occurs that if she doesn’t get better I may have to let her go. Watching her lay as if she is alive, but dead, is killing me inside. I’ve never been an emotional guy until I went back to Mississippi that night and saw her the way I did. Something changed in me that night. From that point forward it wasn’t about me, but her. I learned that when you love someone, you do what’s best for them, even if it isn’t what’s best for you.
I want to walk over to her right now, but I have to take care of Bryce first. I made a promise to love and take care of both of them. I’m going to keep that promise for as long as I can. Right now I’m scared and I don’t know how long I’m going to get to hold onto what has become my family. Just because this child doesn’t share my blood, he still shares a piece of my heart. I kiss the top of his head. He finally cried himself to sleep, but he won’t be asleep long. Macie should be here soon. I can tell his diaper needs to be changed anyway.

I stare at the girl that captured my heart from the time I was just a teenager. I’ve really grown into a man from then to now. I rub my thumb back and forth on Bryce’s head, above his ear. “I need to leave you for a minute, but I promise I’ll come take care of you,” I whisper into the air in her direction. “I love you, Kinzleigh.” My eyes fill to the brim with tears, but I close my lids before they have the chance to fall. She doesn’t have room in her life for someone that can’t contain his emotions.
I kiss the top of his head; his baby smell fills my nostrils. “I love you also, buddy.” I hold him close to me and begin walking in the direction of the stairs and towards his room. I’m going to savor every moment with the two of them. My brain wants me to believe that I still have them forever, but my heart is preparing me for the worst.

After changing his diaper, I sit in the rocker and start to rock him. Macie walks in with a bottle in hand. She takes one look at me and gets a saddened look in her eyes, more like a look of pity. “You’ve gotten attached to him, haven’t you?”
“Yeah.” I am not one of those guys that talk about the emotions fighting against each other deep inside. I prefer to keep to myself. Revealing parts of yourself to others sets you up for gossip and judgment. Coming from a family in the media that was something you didn’t do. Kinzleigh is the only person I’ve ever let in.

“I hope I’m not overstepping any boundaries, because I really like you as a boss and a person, but you know there is only way to fix her, right?” I continue rocking back and forth, staring at the wall before me. I want to know, but at the same time I don’t. I’m not sure I want to know the answer, because I think I already do.
“What’s that?”

“Preston, you can’t fight soul mates. I know you love her, and I really believe she loves you in return, but she’s meant for him. His return has changed the rules of the game. Her soul is fighting her, mourning for its other half. A doctor is going to tell you it’s postpartum depression, but we both know what’s really wrong with her.”
I’m getting mad. Things were going great before he came back. I’m not going to be an asshole and say I wish he would’ve died, because I don’t, but she’s the only girl I’ve ever wanted. That should count for something. “So, you think I should just hand her over to him? What kind of a man hands over the only thing he wants in life. I’ve only ever loved her…”

“I’m saying you should set her free. She made you a promise, and I don’t think she’s going to break it. Her soul is turning against her, rebelling until she gives it what it wants. As silly as it sounds, I really believe someone can die of a broken heart. Would you rather keep her alive and well or allow her to suffer slowly? If you really love her, prove it, and set her free her from the ropes that bind her. Selflessness, that’s the ultimate sacrifice in love.”
I look down at the bundle in my arms. I can’t let them go yet. I need a little more time. She could still get better. She has to get better. I’m trying to convince myself, but it’s not working. Bryce wakes up crying. “Here, give him to me. Talon is watching television in the spare room downstairs. Go tend to her. She needs someone. She looks horrible.”

I stand and hand him to her. I watch her sit in the chair, but I can’t quit looking at him. “Preston…” I glance up at her. “We’ll be fine. I’ve raised one baby. Go on.” I nod and follow instructions, leaving the room. When I get to where Kinzleigh is, she looks worse than she did before. It feels like someone has a hold on my heart and squeezing as hard as they can until it pops.
I get to her and squat down so that I’m at her level. “Kinzleigh,” I whisper. Her eyes are void of all life and emotion. She doesn’t look at me. It’s as if she can’t even hear me.
Fuck it. I can’t take this anymore.

I slide my arms underneath her and lift her, pulling her against my chest. “I’ll do whatever I have to do to fix you, Kinz. I promise.” I walk her upstairs and into our bathroom, sitting her on the toilet. She slumps slightly, but holds herself up.
“Lift your arms,” I state. She does as I say. I remove her shirt and she lowers them back down. I unclasp her bra and remove that too. She is now sitting in just her underwear. I unbutton my shirt and let it fall to the floor. Grabbing the collar of my undershirt, I pull it over my head and toss it down on the other one, forming a pile.
I work quickly to unfasten my belt and pants, letting them drop to the floor as well. Stepping out of my shoes and pants in unison, I kick them to the side. Wrapping my arms around her waist, I pick her up and she wraps her legs around me, and then lays her head against my chest. I walk over to the large round tub and step in. Reaching forward and down, I turn the nozzle and adjust the settings until the water is warm.

I sit down as the bathtub fills with water. My eyes fill with moisture again, but this time I let them fall. My heart is breaking, shattering is a more appropriate word. The only things at the forefront of my mind are the things Macie said. I hold her wrapped in my arms and silently cry.
My heart is trying to convince my mind that it’s wrong, duking it out on what’s best for her. I don’t want to let her go. I want to love her each and every day for the rest of my life. I want to give her the world, and be her world, but after seeing how she reacted to him at the hotel that day and seeing her when she told him goodbye, and looking at her now, my mind is overpowering my heart. It’s clear that what I want and what she wants are two different things.

I could hold onto her if I wanted, but my love for her guilt’s me, and won’t let me do this to her. I feel like I’m being gutted at the realization of what I have to do. I’ll never be the same after this. I’ll never give my heart to another woman. When I do this I’m defying everything I was taught by giving in. I’m sacrificing my happiness for hers. When her and Bryce go, my heart goes with them.
After holding her in the bathtub and trying to convince myself to go back on my decision, I bathed her and gave her some sleeping medicine from the cabinet. I lay her in the bed and pull the covers over her. It doesn’t take her long before her eyes begin to roll in the back of her head and her lids close.

Her cell phone on the nightstand starts to ring. I notice it’s an unsaved number. Trying not to wake her, I answer the call. “Hello.”
The line is silent. “Can I talk to Kinzleigh?”
I look down at her. She is sleeping and looks peaceful for the first time since I got home from work. I’m not waking her. Besides, I’m about to give her over to the bastard anyway; he can let me have a few more hours.
“Now’s not a good time,” I say.
“Are we really going to play it this way?” He breathes and I walk out of the room, quietly shutting the door. I move far enough away she can’t hear me if she wakes.

I need him to stop calling, because what I have to do has to be done in person and I don’t need him to worry Kinzleigh until this is done. “She doesn’t want to see you, Breyson. Please stop calling.” I disconnect the call and throw the phone at the wall, leaving a crack and a now shattered phone.
I run my hands through my hair and rest against the wall, sliding down until I’m sitting on the floor. Leaning my head back I close my eyes.

Meet Charisse Spiers

I developed a passion for reading I never knew I had in November of 2012 when I decided to give eBooks a try. Since then I can’t go a day without some form of a book or character running wild through my mind. For almost a year I constantly had a book pulled up on my Kindle app for my iPad. The beauty of self publishing is that you can interact with the authors, which is how I started writing. I never knew I had the creativity to write a novel until I began conversing with another Indie author. If you ever think that Indie authors don’t like getting feedback from readers, you are very wrong. I began editing for a fellow author and because she took a leap of faith in me and told me to give writing a shot, I am now an Indie author myself. I cannot tell you how amazing this journey has been. It is hard putting yourself out there for the public eye with all of the reviews that come through, but it’s also amazing. I have met some of the most genuine people and people I would consider friends even though I’ve never met them face to face. I have now published the first two books in the Fate series, Accepted Fate and Twisting Fate and I am starting book three Lasting Fate to be released November 2, 2014. I cannot wait to see where this journey takes me and feel free to interact with me here or on social media. I will respond. 🙂

Double Book Tour Veil of Secrecy & The Right One by RM Alexander

R.M. Alexander 
Veil of Secrecy and The Right One 
Double Tour
Release date July 29th
UF/Thriller
Contemporary Romance 
 

 

 
 
Blurb for Veil of Secrecy (Shadows, #1)

 

 

Rachel Brackett
arrives in Sullivan, Montana with simple goals: relocate, settle an estate, and
manage her own antique store. Her parents and friends back home called it
running away. That’s just fine with her.

 

 
Rachel’s curiosity leads her into the forest,
and she finds creatures who know more about her ominous heritage than she does.
The creatures only exist in nightmares – grotesque mutants and shapeshifters.
They seek vengeance for hideous crimes in genetic engineering, and Rachel is
the prime target for retribution. While Rachel searches for the truth behind
the family she never knew, a bounty hunter stalks her every move. Only
Leonardo, a figure shrouded in the shadows, offers protection. A were lion with
the perfect blend of human and feline features. Terrifying. Impossible.
Alluring.
 

 

When Rachel’s home is ripped apart and a friend
attacked, it’s clear there is no safe haven. She is no longer running from her
past, but trying to survive to make it to her future.
 
Excerpt from Veil of Secrecy:
 
 
 
 
“My name is Leonardo. Please, do not come any closer.” The voice changed
locations without stirring a single branch or crackling a single dried leaf.
Rachel turned, scanning her surroundings. “Why won’t you let me see you?”
“Do you need to see to know you are safe? Is it not enough that you are
well after hours of unconsciousness?
Surely, if I intended to harm you, I would have done so already.”
Without menace, the voice changed locations again, now almost directly behind
her.
Rachel turned,
scrutinizing the fading shadows for an outline, a hand or foot, anything to
provide a hint of identity. “Yes, but then, how can I thank you for saving my
life?”
“There is no thanks needed, but you have just done so without seeing me at
all.”
Rachel glanced to
the trees, noticing for the first time the tanagers and morning jays no longer
sang. Only stark silence, a forest frozen with anticipation. Rubbing her arms,
she dropped her gaze. Why does it feel so
hard to breathe?
“You should leave
now. There is nothing to fear in the sun – the Others hunt only at night.”
“The Others?” She
slowly rotated, waiting for an answer or a clue, wondering if she was speaking
to a ghost.  She almost smiled at the
absurdity of the thought.
“Go south,
following the slope. The thickness breaks in a couple miles. When it does, go
east along the stream. You’ll come across a marked path which will lead you
home.”
Rachel’s stomach
swelled into her chest. “How do you know where I live?” Watching her, following
her, made him a stalker. A threat. 
A charged lull
passed. “Do not come into these forests at night.  They are not safe.  And I can not guarantee your safety.”

 

 
 

 

Blurb for The
Right One:

 

Big dreams take strength and determination.
Cami Lockhart’s dream is on the verge of becoming a reality. Lockhart
Sanctuary, a refuge for abused and confiscated cats, is what Cami has worked
for her entire life. But a dream that big requires a daily commitment. Cami
yearns for someone to share the dream with, and knows everyone in town thinks
Alex is the perfect man for the job. There’s one problem. She wants fireworks
with every kiss, not just a friendship with a hint of something more.
Sometimes what you wish for is closer than you
think.
Alex Reynolds shares Cami’s passion for the sanctuary, and at her head
ranchhand, spends every day helping her dream come true. He longs to tell Cami
she’s held his heart since childhood, but losing a lifetime of friendship is a
big risk to take. Being by Cami’s side at the sanctuary is better than letting
go, but Alex knows someday he’ll want more.
Risk losing everything or fight for the dreams
to come true.
The sanctuary is put
in jeopardy when ignored threats take a painful turn. Cami and Alex must each
chose to stand and fight, or lose everything they dream of. 
Excerpt The Right One

 

“Hey Alex! Which way are we going
with this?” Mason, the youngest of the crew at only twenty-four, interrupted
the tirade of thoughts, the final roll of fencing forcing a heavy lean.
                He
pointed westward. “Head out that way first, then we’ll wrap back around.”
                “What’s
the story between you and Ms. Lockhart?”
                “There
is no story. We’ve been friends nearly our entire lives.”
                “You’re
lucky man. She’s sure something to look at.”
                Alex’s
nerves pricked. “And your boss. Remember respect.”
                Mason
grimaced as he concentrated harder than needed at the fencing. “Sorry. Didn’t
mean nothing.”
                “Maybe
not, but keep that kind of talk for some place else, not here.”
                “Sorry,”
Mason repeated and then fell silent.
                Alex
sighed. Time to start dating again. Cami wasn’t the right one, despite how he
felt about her. If she was, she’d be his. Playing the field would help him find
the one, whoever she was. Then he could settle down, start a family.
                And
there was nothing wrong with always being there for a friend.

This is not a HEA

LOVE— it’s a common word that people take for granted. As for me, Sasha Adams,    I  have seen that love isn’t everything, though sometimes it’s meant to be. But to be honest, I never wanted it. That has been my plan for as long as I can remember. The only person I ever wanted to love is my sister Lola. But then I met not one no, not even two— but three beautiful men.
Dylan, the doctor, had his head screwed on tight. Josh, well, he was a tattooed sex machine playboy. Then there was Brax, the rock star. It was clear they all wanted my heart, but I wouldn’t give it to any of them willingly.

Unwillingly, I fell hard, but there was a part of me that knew he could destroy me. So I refused to give him all of me, and now he’s returned and determined to win me back. But it’s too late, isn’t it?

   Note: This is a story of finding oneself, through the horrors and pains of life. This isn’t just a story about love. It’s a story about anguish. This is a story about Lex’s journey to acceptance.

 

Not for Close minded people.

Tank
It had always been about the ride. My love for the ride is what fuels me. It’s what drives me. That freedom of the open road in front of you with not a damn thing holding you back is what I crave.
I don’t need much, shit I don’t want much out of life. My bike, my club, my brothers, my money, and occasionally a warm and willing women in my bed is what I need.
I liked my life that way. It works for me. I enjoyed the familiarity of it. But slowly things were changing. I can feel that change in the air. It’s everywhere. There comes a point in your life where things just change. No matter how much I fight it. No matter how hard I hang on, it’s changing. Whether by choice or not. For better or worse it gets turned upside down on its fucking head. The moment I laid eyes on her shit changed forever. Things were on their way to changing, but fuck if she didn’t tip that shit right over. She hit me like a blow to the chest crippling me. Rocking my world. That girl completely blew everything I thought I wanted to shit. She took me on a wild ride and for better or worse she changed everything for me.

Lil
The loud rumble of pipes fills me with a sense of home. Deep gruff male voices remind me of nights spent sitting at the bar listening to the guys tell me stories. The smell of leather, grease, and smoke brings back memories of hot summer days spent around the compound. The sound of classic rock makes me want to dance. A group of rough and mean men makes me smile. Seeing a beautifully crafted bike makes my heart beat a little faster. A man in leather always makes me hot. The feel of the vibration through my body from a perfectly tuned bike takes me right back to my old life. Some things never change. Sometimes those things are never meant to change. Although much hadn’t changed since I left, a few things had. The loss of loved ones, the addition of new ones. With one new addition to life things changed for me forever. My life will never be the same. He changed it all.

“Listen, listen to the wind and stone.
Listen, listen to the sounds of old.
Listen, listen as my hopes are drowned.
Listen, listen to the sounds that bullets make of blood and bones.
Where will you run today?
How will you ever get away?”

This is NOT a romance. This is a ride.

Blood and Bone

The clicking of heels walking in a misty alley.
The ability to tie a cherry stem with her tongue.
A haunting song no one else knows.

Where do you run when there is no one on your side?
Jane discovers that deep inside her mind there is a map.
What she doesn’t know is that there is also a man who will do anything to get it.

There are paces inside of Jane that even she doesn’t like to go.

What would you do if the secret you kept was the only thing keeping you alive?

But keeping it meant someone else had to die.

Don’t miss out on the new dark read by Tara Brown!
