Charlotte E Hart

The Parlour

Above all else Pascal Van Der Braack is a gentleman. Devastatingly debonair and seductively charming. Always styled and perfected.

He is also a cad, scoundrel, rogue and kink empire founder.

Tutored in the highest of society, having been born of royalty only to deny it, he found his solace in a world where rules need not apply. Where he chooses to ensure rules and duty do not apply.

Some call him Sir, others call him Master and no one would dare risk his wrath unless they required the punishment he favourably delivers. No one except one, who has just strapped a collar around his throat. One he asked for. Now he needs to appropriate his businesses correctly for peace to ensue. He needs to find the correct path forward for everyone concerned, so he can relax, enjoy, and finally hand over the responsibility to someone else.

Simple.

But where comfort and a safety of sorts once dwelt, there is now uncertainty, and a feeling of longing he no longer understands. A need unfulfilled. As problems arise and allies scheme, he finds himself searching for answers in the most unlikely of places.

 

Lilah

It’s the same every day. I found it odd at first but I’m used to it now. I was so tired and weak when I got here that it was helpful really. That small woman comes in to help me wash and get dressed. I don’t know where the clothes come from, but they’re nice enough, and at least they’re clean and dry. Not like the rags I arrived in. They were taken from me the moment I took them off to get into the shower, the first shower I’d had in god knows how long. For nearly a year, I’d been running the streets. A year without a real bed or a home of any sort. There isn’t a long and awful story to tell about an abusive family member or a broken home. I suppose I just slipped through the cracks and got lost at some point. I lost my job first, then I couldn’t afford the bills or my apartment, so the landlord threw me out. I don’t blame him, he did the right thing for himself. And then it was just a long and never-ending road to nothingness.

So, now I’m here, wherever here is.

And I don’t know why…

EXCERPT:

 

Lilah’s POV:

VDB1 all © Charlotte E Hart

“You will not hoist me anywhere, you will carry on with our conver ….”

The speed of his strides across to me has my feet retreating at the very real possibility of being hoisted.

“I will, my dear, and I shall enjoy the privilege greatly,” he says, circling my frame and smacking my arse in the process. My body scoots forward again and is stopped only by his arm wrapping around my waist, drawing me back to his warm body. “You should be careful with your tone around such an enticement, hmm? Perhaps we should fuck here rather than in front of Him, hmm? Does the thought make you so nervous?” My frame immediately stills in his arms. “Ahh, you did not realise my plot.” No, I did not. “Mmm,” he muses, breathing into my neck and dragging his tongue across the soft spot behind my ear. Tingles instantly start to collapse my aim for ‘in control’ at the very thought of his lips. “Should you still require access to my innards, Lilah, you shall have to ask him.”

“For what?”

“To teach you to take them from me, of course. That is what you wanted, hmm?”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Charlotte is a dark erotic romance/suspense author living in the heart of the Shropshire countryside in Great Britain. She’s lived all across the United Kingdom due to her previous employment as an Event manager but finally settled in a small town that still reeks of old school England.

Her love of reading started in college, but the call to writing came much later in life, when she finally had the chance to put pen to paper for the first time. Writing has become a revolution for the soul and she cherishes every second that she’s sitting at the laptop tapping her way into a new character.

When not writing she enjoys socialising with close friends and travelling to all the major cities across the globe. Travel has always been a constant companion to reading throughout her life and only increases her thirst for stimulation.

With the release of The White Trilogy, she intends to spend the next year enjoying every element of being a published author and learning as much as she can. She also very much looks forward to hopefully meeting some fans at some point.

Playing the Game, Derek Backhard by Shawnte Borris

Release Date: March 30, 2016

Genre: Romance, Sports Romance

Tour Dates: April 29, 2016

Playing the GameSince being drafted by the NHL to play for his home team at age nineteen, Derek Backhard has had everything he’s ever dreamed of – unrivaled MVP mentions, countless goals and assists, even being compared to the great one. Holding the power to control his future in the palm of his hands, nothing stood in his way.

Until the unthinkable happened, and everything about his life shifted. Past priorities fell away the moment he held baby Ryder in his arms mere moments after losing his close friend, and Ryder’s father, Brad.

After weeks of watching Liz fall apart over the loss of her husband as she struggled to adjust to life as a single parent, Derek vows to give her and Ryder everything they deserve, creating a life he never knew he always wanted.

Rocked to her core by her changing feelings for him, Liz doesn’t know what to do with Derek or his offer. Uncertainty swirls within her as she leans on her lifelong friend during the hard times, but how much of his attention is real, and how much is pity?

Is she strong enough to let him in and let him take care of her, or will she force him away and back into the life she thinks he really wants?

iBooks Amazon USAmazon UK

Teaser New 4

Interview:

Special EditionCan you tell us a little about Playing the Game?

PTG wasn’t supposed to happen at first. *spoiler* I had no plan to write a series until Brad died in book one and as I grieved him, yes I grieved him too as it was also a shock to me that he died. Brad kept talking and talking that he wanted his scene to be written, he wanted his own book but I had to figure out a way to make that happen. Yes the book is about Derek but that is why Brad shadows the book so much.

Playing the Game is actually the second book in The Game series, do readers need to read the first book in order to completely understand and enjoy Playing the Game?

Absolutely you need to read book one. You need to get to know each character first and why they say and do the stuff that they do. Yes in book two they’ve grown, but I still feel it’s very important that you understand the development and bond they all have together.

What can you tell us about the first book, The Game?

The Game was written all in fun. Kirsten is my other half really, I’m very straight-shooting and I don’t give anything away when I make a business deal. I am often told I am a very hard person to read which sometimes comes off that I am a b*tch, just like Kirsten. If I changed professions and went into business, Kirsten is exactly how I want to be. I also have a strong bond with my high school friend twenty years later so it was important to me that Kirsten had that too.

What was the inspiration for Playing the Game?

Easy, I wrote a book about my ultra-ego. LOL

What about hockey and the NFL draws you in?

I’m not sure what draws me to hockey, besides that I’m Canadian and it’s a passion we share. When I watch the games at home, I’m loud. I talked to the players, give the coach my coaching opinions and I yell when stupid moves are made. Yet, when I go to a live game I sit and front of my seat never taking my eyes off the ice and I’m as quiet as a mouse. I really am the most boring person to take to a game. As for the NFL, I don’t watch and when I do, I’m lost because it different rules then the CFL.

Do you have a favorite hockey player or team?

My favorite team is the Oilers, there are my home team (you don’t cheer for another team other than your home team, that is just wrong) and don’t make fun of my team either because what you are going to poke fun at me with, I make the same statements. LOL! I don’t have a favorite player because it’s a team effort, not one play is better than another.

While writing Playing the Game plot and outline? If so did you follow it, or did it go off track and turn out differently than excepted?

I write an outline plot for every book and character, however when I start writing and developing each character they start to take over. I have yet to actually write a book that looks anything like my plot and outline. My books always turn out different when what’s in my head when I start to write.

How much control do your characters have over the outcome of the book? Did they throw any curve balls balls at you in Playing the Game?

Yes, the characters have a lot of control over my work, apparently. I find they all become bossy. Definitely curve balls are thrown in, such as Brad- he was not to die and Derek was to finish out his playing career due to an injury, not by choice.

Describe Derek in five words.

Dominate, Fierce, Loving, Caretaker and HOT

Describe Liz in five words.

Soft, Outgoing, Quiet, Nurturing and Passionate

What was going through Derek’s mind when he first held Liz’s son, Ryder?

I think tons of emotions were running through his head at one time. It’s hard to pin point which one to really focus on, a lot was happening at his point in time of the book.

Do you have a favorite scene/moment in Playing the Game?

Chapter twelve is one of my favorites because it’s real life. My favorite line is “Press Cougar Claudia.” LOL it still makes me laugh.

Do you identify with any of the characters in Playing the Game?

I have Kirsten work ethic but I also am entune to Liz’s nurturing.

Do you plan to write more about any of the characters in Playing the Game? Maybe one of Derek’s team members?

Adam and Caroline’s story is next followed by Logan and Steve’s. So far I have no plan to write another hockey book but if I was, I think Jonesy would get a book.

Do you aim for a certain number of pages or words each day?

No, I’m an erratic writer. With so much going on, on the farm at different times of the year it’s hard to sit and write some days. One day I will write eight pages, the next three days nothing then fifteen pages. My goal is to get two books out a year… maybe three.

When did you know you wanted to be an author?

I didn’t know I wanted to become an author, it wasn’t my intent at all. I have my schooling to teach special needs children and when I stopped teaching to have my family, writing found me when my youngest started kindergarten full time.

You have a number of books released, do you have a favorite?

Currently I have six books published with hopefully two more on the way this year and two more covers complete after that… with another one being developed in August.

When you’re not writing, what can you be found doing?

Reading, traveling, farming, 4H and of course chilling with my family and friends.

What are you writing now? Anything you can tell us about it?

When I come back from A Weekend With The Authors, in Nashville in May I am going to be starting an MC (motorcycle series) Waking Up In Leather. It’s not going to be your traditional MC book, it will focus more on romance but of course there will be crude things involved.

What is something that you find particularly challenging about writing or being an author in general?

The most challenging for me is to stick to deadlines, I absolutely SUCK at them. The other is reaching out to my readers, I wish there was additional ways to meet more of them, find out their story. I love book signings for this reason I don’t necessarily sell myself, I’d much rather meet the readers.

What advice would you give to writers just starting out?

Write for you and no one else! You will not please everyone and nor should you. Write because it’s a passion for you, not for another way to make an income- because it’s that’s the case you will be eating mac and cheese forever.

Do you have any writing rituals? Anything you must have while writing? Coffee? Candy? etc.

Candy, I eat so much candy it’s sickening really and when I edit I binge eat everything.

Who influenced your writing/life the most?

No one influences my writing because I write for me and what I want to read. But I will say this journey all started when I was thirty and I read my first ever book beginning to cover, then the entire series in three days. Thanks to Twilight.

Is there anything you’d like to say to your readers?

I truly can’t thank my readers and bloggers enough. This past year was a nightmare and each and every reader and blogger stuck by me till the bitter end and for that they will always have my gratitude.

What are the names of your published books and where can we purchase them?

– Haunted by Shalini Boland

Hunted
Marchwood Vampire Series, Book 3
by Shalini Boland
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Tour Dates: April 27, 2016
BLURB
A dark and suspenseful vampire
adventure that spans the centuries from modern-day England to the wilds of
ancient Scythia.
Maddy and Alex are running
scared. The Cappadocian vampires are closing in. But Alex is so busy worrying
about the vampires, he can’t see the terrible threat right under his nose…
Something else is hunting
Alexandre. Something ancient and powerful.
Be swept away in this
heart-pounding tale of ancient legend, star-crossed love and nail-biting
supernatural adventure. This is the climatic finale of The Marchwood Vampire
Series.

EXCERPT
Tommo took his mug of
Cheerios over to his desk and began eating. Over the crunch of cereal, he heard
distant fireworks. It wasn’t even eight o’clock yet, and already people were
celebrating the New Year. Why was everyone so eager to get to next year,
anyway? Were their lives really so bad that they needed to constantly look
forward to tomorrow and next week and next month and next year?
Hold on… that noise?
He had thought it was fireworks, but… The hair on the back of Tommo’s neck
began to prickle. He realised that the popping sound might not actually be
distant fireworks. It might be something a lot closer – like maybe a light
tapping at his window.
Tommo placed his mug
and spoon down on the desk, and carefully finished chewing the contents of his
mouth. From the dark window, his own scared reflection stared back at him.
Surely he must have imagined the noise. His apartment was four floors up, and
there was no balcony. No tree with branches that could be scraping against the
window. But, there it was again. A rhythmic tap, tap, tap.
Tommo pushed himself
away from the window, his chair rolling backward over the parquet floor. The
tapping had now been replaced by a squeaking sound. What the… Was that a circle
appearing on the window? Yes, someone was drawing a large circle on the window
with their fingernail! He had to be hallucinating. Maybe the milk was off and
he was coming down with food poisoning.
Just then, the circle
of glass moved. It tipped out of the window and crashed onto his computer
monitor. Tommo jumped up in terror, as the glass slid down and landed with a
thud on his desk, unbroken. A rush of frigid air flew into the apartment. Tommo
gasped, too scared to run or even scream.
He had to get out of
here. He had to leave the apartment. But he hadn’t left the apartment in
months. Someone or something was out there in the darkness. An arm came through
the empty circle of air. Tommo panted in fear, pushed the chair out of his way
and backed up against his front door. Someone was climbing through the window.
Coming to get him.
In the blink of a
cursor, that someone appeared in front of him, staring down at his face with
murderous eyes. Tommo shrank back even further, trying to melt into the wooden
door, wishing he had the courage to open it and run away from whoever this was.
‘Who are you?’ he
squeaked. ‘What do you want? Take whatever you need. Just, please, don’t hurt
me.’
‘Tommo,’ the man
said. How did he know his name? This man wasn’t like anyone Tommo had ever met
before. He was blonde and pale, with piercing eyes and the whitest teeth. He
looked like a character from one of his games. He wasn’t quite a man either. More, a boy. But the scariest
boy he’d ever seen. Young and old at the same time. Like an angel, or a devil.
Not… human.
‘You had a visitor
today,’ the man-boy continued, his voice a hissing whisper. The trace of a
foreign accent.
‘A visitor?’ Tommo
repeated. He felt as though he was watching himself from above, his mind
divorced from his body.
‘Yes. A girl.’
‘She came here, yes,’
Tommo stammered.
‘She asked you to do
something for her. But you said no. Why did you say no?’
‘I… I… can do it. If
you want me to do it. I can do what she asked.’
‘Now.’
‘Yes, yeah, sure. It…
it might take a while, though. A few hours at least.’
‘A photograph has
been sent to your phone and to your email,’ the man said. ‘Email back when you
find a match for the girl in the photo.’
‘What happens if I
can’t find a match?’
The man bent down, so
his face was millimetres from his own. ‘Do you see the hole I made in your
window, Tommo?’
Tommo nodded.
‘Look at it,’ the man
said. He took hold of Tommo’s chin and turned his face toward the window, to
the newly made hole. The man’s hand was hard and cold like ice. Not like a
human hand at all.
‘I can see. I can see
the window, and I can see the hole.’
‘Good,’ replied the
man. ‘It’s a long way down, Tommo. A long way down.’
Tommo felt sick. He
felt the Cheerios working their way back up his gullet.
‘Remember,’ the man
said, letting go of Tommo’s chin. ‘Find the girl in the photo.’
And then the man was
gone. Just like that. Gone. And Tommo’s Cheerios finally made a reappearance
all over the parquet floor.

Amazon ~ All Romance Ebooks

Barnes & Noble ~ Kobo ~ iBooks

 

Excerpt:

She’d thought he’d be easy to find, but the place was SEAL hunk central, with an awful lot of the fit, attractive guys in attendance. While quite a few of them flashed charming grins in her direction, none of them had those unforgettable blue eyes she’d spent the past four weeks seeing in her dreams.

Her earlier assessment had been right. This was hopeless.

Sighing, Hayley turned to go in search of Brad instead and almost smacked right into the broad, muscular chest of a guy in blue camo. She stared at his uniform up close, absently wondering why the Navy wore blue camouflage. It wasn’t like they were ever going to be in a blue jungle. She glanced at the rank on his collar—noting the three chevrons of a petty officer first class—then the nametag sewn on the right hand side of his chest, noting his name—it said WARD—before lifting her head to apologize for practically mowing him down. But when her gaze met his, all she could do was stare. There couldn’t be two men on the planet with eyes that blue. She’d found the SEAL who’d saved her life.

“It’s you,” she breathed.

Okay, that definitely wasn’t the most intelligent thing she’d ever said out loud. But the SEAL smiled anyway, flashing the cutest pair of dimples her way. Hayley’s breath hitched. She’d tried to picture what he looked like ever since that night, alternating between Chris Hemsworth and Henry Cavill and finally settling on a combination of the two. She hadn’t even been close. Petty Officer Ward was even more gorgeous than she imagined. Taller than she was by nearly a foot, he had broad shoulders, dark hair, and a square jaw to go along with those mesmerizing eyes. Now, this was what a superhero should look like.

“It is,” he said. “I’m glad to see you’re doing well, Ms. Garner.”

She’d been so caught up in the memory of the captivating blue of his eyes she’d completely forgotten how sexy his voice was. The deep, rich tones caressed her, making her feel warm all over. Just like they had that night in Africa. Wow, this guy was pure sexy, wrapped in blue camo. She had a crazy urge to ask him to say something else—anything else—so she could hear that voice again.

“Call me Hayley, please,” she finally managed.

She offered him her hand, pulse skipping when he took it. Wow, he had really big hands. A little part of her mind whispered something about the significance of that, but she ignored it. Instead, she focused on the overall sense of strength seeming to pour off him in waves. Being this close to him and getting a chance to take in how tall and muscular he was reminded her of the way he’d picked her up and carried her so effortlessly that night—all while using a weapon.

Hayley had never thought of herself as the kind of woman who wanted to be swept off her feet by a guy, but right now she was thinking this man could carry her anywhere he wanted to.

Damn, this guy was seriously messing with her calm, cool journalist exterior.

“Chasen Ward,” he said.

Chasen. Unusual, but it fit him. Gorgeous name for a gorgeous guy.

She wondered if the guy realized the kind of effect he likely had on every woman on the planet, especially the one standing right in front of him. Probably not, she guessed. Guys were usually clueless about that kind of stuff.

“How did things go over there?” she asked. “After you got me out, I mean.”

She cringed as soon as the words were out. Guess he hadn’t messed with her journalist mojo as much as she’d thought. Crap, now he’d think she was looking for a scoop. Nothing turned people off more than a nosy reporter.

But he merely nodded. The shade from the brim on his hat accentuated his chiseled features as he moved, making them seem even more angular.

“They went well,” he said. “My Team and I got back a few days ago as a matter of fact.”

Her inner Barbara Walters wanted to ask what else they’d done over there, but before she could decide if that was a good idea or not, two other Navy guys in blue camouflage sauntered over. Both petty officers second class, they were tall, well-built, and good looking.

“Hey, I know you,” the younger of the two men said with a trace of a Southern accent. Blond with brown eyes, he had that casual Channing Tatum-thing going on. “Though I hope you don’t mind me saying, you look a lot better now than you did the last time we saw you.” Hayley frowned in confusion at the two men, sure she would have remembered if she’d met them before.

Chasen chuckled. “This is Dalton Jennings and Nash Cantrell. They were with me when we rescued you that night. You’ll have to forgive Dalton for being clueless. He’s taken several classes on how to be charming, but unfortunately, he keeps failing them.”

She laughed and shook hands with both men. Dalton looked so chagrined, she couldn’t help but take pity on him. “Don’t worry about it, Dalton. I’m well aware of how much of a mess I looked that night. Thanks for being there with Chasen and the rest of your Team.”

The SEAL visibly relaxed, giving her another grin. “No problem. Just doing our job, ma’am.”

Dalton might have failed out of charm school—according to Chasen at least—but there wasn’t a woman alive who wouldn’t swoon over that Southern drawl.

“I know it was hard to tell with all the gear we had on,” Dalton continued. “But I was the one doing this.”

Dark eyes suddenly intense, he struck an action hero pose, arms lifted as if he were holding an imaginary machine gun. On either side of him, Chasen and Nash snorted in unison.

“You mean you were the one nearly running into every wall around you because the batteries in your NVGs were dying.” Nash pointed out drily, his dark eyes filled with amusement.

Dalton considered that a moment, then dropped the pose and shrugged. “That might have been me.”

Hayley laughed, unable to help herself. They were both funny—and seriously cute—but she had to admit she was glad when they took off a little while later, leaving her alone with Chasen.

“How is your ankle feeling?” he asked as his buddies walked off toward the pavilion.

“Much better, thanks,” she said.

He looked down pointedly at her foot where it peeked out from under her long skirt. She’d tried not to make it obvious, but she’d been standing with all her weight on her good foot so she could give the injured one a rest. Chasen lifted a brow as if he saw through the little white lie.

Hayley gave him a sheepish look. “Okay, you caught me. It still hurts a little. But it really is much better. Thanks to you.”

“How’s that?”

“If you hadn’t gotten there in time, a messed-up ankle would have been the least of my worries. I don’t know how I can ever repay you for saving my life.”

That playful grin returned. “I’m more than ready to call it even if you consider going out to dinner with me.”

If Chasen were any other guy, Hayley might consider making him work a little harder for a date. But she’d been more than ready to go out with him since he’d loaded her on that helicopter over in Africa. Heck, there’d been a time or two when she’d woken up from an especially nice dream involving the Navy

SEAL when she was ready to do a lot more than date the guy. Rip off his uniform and roll around on the floor with him being one thing that came to mind.

“Dinner sounds great,” she said, quite proud of her ability to maintain her composure.

“Friday night work for you?”

“Perfect.”

Hayley entered her number in his phone while he did the same with hers, then she gave him her address.

“I’ll see you at 1830 hours,” he said, then chuckled. “I mean, six-thirty.”

“I can’t wait,” she said, and meant it.

Touching his fingers to the brim of his hat in a causal salute, Chasen gave her another smile then strode off. Hayley let out a sigh as she watched him go. Damn, he made that blue camouflage uniform look good.

NEW RELEASE ~ Inside the Office ~ FL Jacob

~☆~ NOW AVAILABLE ~☆~

Inside the Office
I’m Liam Scott. I had everything. A good job, the perfect house, my dream girl that I was going to marry. I needed her to be mine, but fate had other plans. I watched her fall in love with someone else and my attempts to win her back just pushed her further away. 


Left heartbroken, six months pass and fate revealed new plans for me. 

Marissa Conner, a coworker and I, share an unexpected night of passion together. Things will never be the same as I realize I can’t walk away from her. Our whirlwind romance is compromised at every turn, testing our strength. Is she worth my job, worth the risk, when office policy is against us? 

Realizing Marissa is my new dream do I dare risk my heart again, and with her? 



SNEAK PEAK:
 “Marissa, can you come here please?”

    She looks over her shoulder, and the smirk she gives me makes me reach down to adjust myself. 

     “Sure thing Mr. Scott.” She grabs her tablet and saunters into the room.  When she’s inside the door, she stops.  Her bottom lip gets sucked into her mouth, and I can’t take it anymore. 

     “Shut the door, Marissa.”

     A devious smile graces her face. “Am I in trouble, Mr. Scott?”

     “Lock it.”
     
     Marissa’s hand turns the button without taking her eyes off mine. Getting up, I’m standing in front of her in seconds. “I’d like to christen my office.”

     Her tongue darts out to lick her bottom lip. “But there are still people in the office.”

     “I guess you’re going to have to be quiet then, huh?”

     Taking the tablet from her, I set it on the couch next to the door. “We need to discuss my expectations for you as my assistant.”

     She tries to control her breathing as she steps closer to me. In her heels, she still has to look up to me, but I can see how excited she is. Her voice is breathy and sexy as fuck. “Is that so?”

     Grabbing her around the waist, I pull her closer and let my hand tangle in the hair at the base of her neck.  Tugging it slightly, she gasps with the twinge of pain. “Your smart mouth does things to me.”

     Kissing her hard until we’re both breathless, I turn us around and walk her back until she bumps into my desk. She lets out a little yelp at the surprise while she braces herself on my desktop.  I smile against her lips and bunch her skirt up her legs.  Stepping back, I look at the sight in front of me.  The garter belt and stockings catch my attention.  Nothing is sexier than a woman in sexy lingerie. 


I am a mommy of two, wife to an amazing man, and full-time employee. Life is crazy and busy! I started writing again during a darker time in my life in a group write in a Facebook group. They brought back my passion for writing that I haven’t felt since high school and helped me through hard times. 

Starting this process was tedious and nerve-wracking, but my amazing ladies and my fabulous husband have inspired me to take my love for writing to the next step.


My current books are Have I Told You, I Won’t Give Up on You, A Very Merry Black Hollywood Christmas, and Give Me All of You, all part of the Black Hollywood Series.  

Behind the Computer and Inside the Office are part of a new series entitled Rumor Has It series. 

Coming Fall 2016, One in a Million. New Characters, New story, Standalone! More information coming soon.
