Leaving me to my misery, Master and the doctor left the room to speak in harsh whispers in the hallway. Curling myself into a ball, I kept crying harder and harder until I was gasping for breath. Master threw a glare my way before leading the doctor far away from my room.
The pain, the loss, shot through me like I was taking a bullet to the heart. How could I have done this? How could I put my precious little one through something this awful? I was as bad as Master. I was a monster like him. Crying harder at my thoughts, my eyes caught on the doorway in time to see someone peeking in. My body relaxed in one great whoosh. Jacob was here. He slipped into the room and crept into the bed with me. Ignoring the blood and filth on the towels, for the first time, Jacob took me into his arms. I curled into his chest, inhaling his clean, crisp scent through the tears.
“I’m sorry, Alana. I couldn’t get here sooner, and I can’t stay here long. He’ll come back soon.”
It didn’t matter. He was here now, and I clung to him, curling my fingers into his shirt and holding on desperately. In his arms, the pain dulled, and I could handle it. I could cry into his chest and be held. I could be fragile, and he’d catch the broken pieces. His lips trailed up the side of my neck, soft kisses that pushed away the agony and warmed me.
“You can do it. You’re strong enough. Hold on a little longer,” he whispered into my skin. I believed it because he did too.
So I lifted my face so his lips could touch mine.
Soft and warm, his mouth was different. He slipped over the scars of my abuse and filled in the cervices left behind. Maybe it was the medicine making me fanciful, but I thought I could ask for this. That maybe I would ask him to take me. That I’d like to have him. But then, he was pulling away.
“I have to go. I’ll be with you later. Look for me.”
And as fast as he’d come, he was gone, but the pain was behind a wall, one he’d built high. He gave me strength, and I would use it to survive. I’d done the right thing, as horrible as it was, and I knew he didn’t judge me for it. We’d done this together, and it made the load easier to bear. Master stomped his way back into the room, face scarlet and chest heaving like a locomotive. I wanted to cringe at his bald fists, but I couldn’t move. I was too tired, or too resigned maybe, to care.
Writing professionally since 2008, LeTeisha Newton’s love of romance novels began long before it should have. After spending years sneaking reads from her grandmother’s stash, she finally decided to pen her own tales. As many will do during their youth, she bounced from fantasy, urban literature, mainstream, interracial, paranormal, heterosexual, and LGBT works until she finally rested in contemporary romance.
LeTeisha is all about deep angst and angry heroes who take a bit more loving to smooth their rough edges. Love comes in many sizes, shapes, and colors, as well as with—or without—absolute beauty and fairy tale sweetness. She writes the darker tales because life is hard … but love is harder.

A hockey-playing prince, a most improper lady, and one accidental pregnancy…
When you’re an heir so spare that getting attacked by a shark is more likely than you ever wearing the crown, you’re only allowed certain liberties. Yet still, those liberties can bite you in the ass.
Good thing I’m such a charming devil.
But even my charms haven’t kept me from being banished to America for a year under the pretense of playing professional hockey while my father cleans up my latest mess. However, trouble follows me wherever I go. Generally, trouble of the beautiful female variety and Gracie Diamonte is no exception. Or possibly, she’s the best exception.
Until the dinosaur suit. The cookie incident. And the accidental pregnancy.
Of course, I’ll do the right thing.
Just as soon as I solve that pesky problem of my royal betrothal.
I’m about to be the biggest scandal to ever rock my country, and there’s a good chance my father may throw me to the sharks after all. The funny thing is I’ve heard that raising children may not be so different from swimming with the sharks. So no matter how you look at things… I’m ROYALLY PUCKED.

Avenging angels aren’t a new story, but SC Cunningham’s The Deal delivers a fresh spin with a grittier, edgy feel.
Tenacious Amy Fox ends up in the afterlife and due to a deal she made with God, she’s an avenging angel circumventing and defeating evil on every front.
Driven by the memory of the horrible sexual violence she suffered as a preschooler, overzealous doesn’t even begin to describe Amy. Angel, though she may be, Amy holds nothing but contempt for those who deal and profit from human suffering—specifically, human trafficking—and goes above and beyond to dispense with the lowlifes who always seem to slip through the cracks of justice. Her memories also lead Amy to hold tight to hopes of revenge against her abuser, the appropriately named Richard ‘Dick’ Parker. and the chance at a little vigilante justice.
No one said angels were perfect—although they could use a few less F-bombs.
New partner Jack, a fallen angel, is supposed to keep Amy in line… but that never happens. HA! Someone needs to keep Jack in line! He’s adorable even if his psyche was kicked around by life, but the connection from the past he shares with Amy is a mind bender. Didn’t see that coming!
Amy Fox is a great protagonist. She is far from perfect, but I love the fact she’s unapologetic. All too often, male anti-heroes are accepted as being ill-natured, overbearing, rough-talking rule-breakers. When a female lead is portrayed similarly, there’s something ‘wrong’ with her… there’s a reason for her ‘flaw’ and she needs to be ‘fixed’.
Whatever. Amy is still learning the craft of keeping mortals safe, but she won’t apologize for being a bit heavy-handed.
Familial connections are revealed that gave me pause over how the whole good/evil thing mingles so closely together. They also made me wonder if I could kill Gregori myself – HA! But as much as I despise him, my ugh character in The Deal is Mara. UGH!
The Deal is not for the faint of heart. It shows the worst of some of the worst, but excellent writing keeps the violence in its proper perspective and keeps the reader swiping pages. The ending made me smile… and exhale, but also made me aware this wild ride is just getting started. It’s a ride I wholeheartedly recommend!
