Synopsis

One family of five… One life-altering tragedy… Three survivors. Each of the Mason siblings takes the outcome of the devastation three completely different ways.

When you live with a lifetime of lies, secrets, and regret over time it eats away at everything inside until all you’re left with is a cold, empty heart that’s fractured into a million pieces.

Stephen Mason has lived with not only one, but two life-shattering secrets since the day a car accident claimed the lives of his parents, left his brother impaired, and led his sister down a destructive path.

His number one rule since the accident: never let anyone get close…

He only destroys the lives of anyone who gets close to him. He’s distanced himself from his siblings and the possibility of love. He’s accepted the cruel punishment of being alone with his secrets until the day he dies.

But fate may have other plans…

Maddy Malone has lived her entire life knowing the fact that she was unwanted. Given up at birth, she bounced around the foster care system until she was eighteen. She’s learned to guard her feelings and protect her heart.

Good things are only meant for special people. When they happen to unspecial people, there are always consequences.

Two wrongs don’t make a right, but can two broken people make one whole?

When you’ve given up hope and have retreated inside yourself…

Can one truly speak…Love?

Header I Speak... Love

I Speak…Love is the final installment of this amazing series revolving around three siblings, the Mason, deeply scarred emotionally by an event that happened in their childhood, a terrible accident that resulted in their parents death.

Stephen, the eldest brother, has been hiding so many secrets regarding his family and events that are connected to that tragic day, that he has become beyond broken. Besides survivors guilt, he carries so much pain and suffering deep inside himself that is incredible how he can function. But he has become an expert at that, hide all that and completely focus on their company’s. Sadly it his value there is never acknowledged, specially by his brother, River, who constantly degrades him, and he sees that as something he has to endure, as part of his punishment. 

Maddy has never known true happiness. From the moment she was born she was always rejected, never truly wanted or loved by anyone, which created scars that run blood deep. After years in the system and in the street, she fast learned to count only on herself and protect herself at all cost.

I’ve always been a protector. A protector of the few belongings I own, my food, people I allow in my life, and most importantly my heart.

Afters so much time alone, she couldn’t believe when a golden opportunity was presented to her, with an amazing job offer, her own place, and something extra she never expected, a true friendship with best friends and catering owners, Joss and Nina . And with them, even if not instantly, came Stephen, a twin guarded soul.

After getting better acquainted, in the family weekly events, in which they were pushed to participate, they start getting closer and closer, and giving in to they attraction. It’s a beautiful thing to watch how they slowly get more and more involve in the other.

“Sweetness,” he says. Did he just call me sweetness? No one has ever called me a nickname before. I’ve never been special enough to anyone for them to give me a nickname.

They truly fit each other, like two destined pieces of a puzzle. They understand the other perfectly, and their understanding and compassion is rewarding to watch.

Teaser 1 I speak Love

Of course, they had huge personal battles to fight, but once they gave in to each other and allowed themselves to be supported and aided by the other, they discovered the tru e beauty of letting go and falling deeply in love. Of course it was a troubled and suffered road, they had to endure.

“Everything good in my life is always taken away from me. I just don’t understand why I can’t have anything good in my life,” she whispers.

 My heart sinks in my chest because that’s my exact life. Everything I touch, everyone I come into contact with gets hurt or dies.

But what came at the end of that road was more than rewarding, it was life altering… And I couldn’t be happier, really overjoyed. What and amazing, beautiful, and soul searching journey it was! Stephen and Maddy were absolutely PERFECT in their imperfection!

Teaser 2 I speak Love

I loved seeing the previous extraordinary MCs all in this story, and with all the other secondary characters, and getting their own HEA. They really showed us, and in particular Maddy,  the true meaning of the word family, that is it’s not always perfect, but they are there, to support you, show you your mistakes, and most of all LOVE you. 

This, these people, I’m now a part of something so much bigger than I ever thought possible . . . Family. I’m part of a family.

‘I Speak…Love’ was, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful and emotional stories I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading! Like in ‘I Hear…Love’ I felt that every word came straight from author’s heart and soul! It made us bleed in pain with the character and rejoice in every battle they conquered! Absolutely stunning! Congratulations Annalisa Nicole, this extraordinary love and personal growth story is definitely a testimony of why you’re one of my favorite authors! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“I told you I wasn’t good for you. I wasn’t lying. I’m not. You have nothing to worry about though, because I have every intention of not being good for you for the rest of your life. I want to steal your breath every time you feel me looking at you. I want to hijack your heart and keep it all to myself. I want to rob you of every single one of those insecurities running around behind that beautiful, freckled forehead. I want to bum a ride on your emotions as they wildly churn in your green eyes. I want to be the brick wall you crash into when your chameleon needs to change colors. I have every bad intention toward you. So you see, there’s nothing good for you here. You can stay. Maddy, I want you to stay,”

Synopsis

 From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby comes the second novel in her sizzling Fusion series.

Camilla, “Cami,” LaRue was five years old when she first fell in love with Landon Palazzo. Everyone told her the puppy love would fade—they clearly never met Landon. When he left after graduation without a backward glance, she was heartbroken. But Cami grew up, moved on, and became part-owner of wildly popular restaurant Seduction. She has everything she could want…or so she thinks.

After spending the last 12 years as a Navy fighter pilot, Landon returns to Portland to take over the family construction business. When he catches a glimpse of little Cami LaRue, he realizes she’s not so little any more. He always had a soft spot for his little sister’s best friend, but nothing is soft now when he’s around the gorgeous restauranteur.

Landon isn’t going to pass up the chance to make the girl-next-door his. She’s never been one for romance, but he’s just the one to change her mind. Will seduction be just the name of her restaurant or will Cami let him get close enough to fulfill all her fantasies?

Excerpt

PROLOGUE

~Landon~

“Are you packed?” my sister, Mia, asks through the phone. Her voice is husky with sleep, which makes sense since it’s the middle of the night back home in Portland, Oregon.

“I leave tomorrow, Mia. Of course I’m not packed.” She snickers. I just finished up my last debriefing meeting, my last day as an officer in the Navy. I grip the zipper of my flight uniform and sigh. “It’s not right.”

“I know,” she says quietly. “But you’re safe and whole, and you could be dead, Landon, so I’ll take it.”

I frown, staring at myself in the mirror as I unzip my uniform for the last time. I’ll never wear it again, never pilot a plane again.

What the fuck am I supposed to do now? The Navy gave me options, but if I can’t fly, there’s no sense in it. Flying isn’t just what I do, it’s who I am.

“You’re overthinking,” Mia says.

“I’m a pilot, Mia. This is what I love. It wasn’t supposed to end like this.”

“You’re alive,” she says.

“Am I?” I murmur, then shake my head and wince at the neck pain that still nags me from time to time. Ejecting from an F- 16 will cause a crick in the neck. And a loss of an inch in height that may never return, along with an entire Naval career.

Son of a bitch.

“This has been the longest four months of our lives, Landon. We’re all anxious to see you.”

“I’ll be home in a few days,” I reply as I pull a T- shirt over my head and throw the last of my belongings in a box that the Navy will have sent to me from Italy.

I loved being in Italy for the past few years, and God knows I didn’t plan to leave it like this.

But I am. Maybe Mia’s right; at least I’m alive and I can walk and live a normal life.

I just can’t fly.

And that’s what hurts more than any injury from the crash.

“What time should I come get you from the airport?”

“No need,” I reply, regretting calling my sister and waking her up. I just didn’t know what else to do when I came in here and was faced with boxes and the end of a career I love. “I’ll get there.”

“Landon— ”

“It’s okay, really. I’ll see you in a few days.”

“Be safe,” she says. “And, Landon?”

“Yeah.”

“It’s going to be okay.”

I force a grin and a nod, though she can’t see either. “Of course it is.”

We say our good- byes and I sit on the edge of the bed, scrub my hands over my face, and take a deep breath. I hope she’s right.

Synopsis

No take-backs.
That was the motto that Drew lived by in all things, including his love life.
He’s a player, pure and simple.
He’s learned the hard way that women aren’t all hearts and flowers. Sometimes their sexy bodies and beautiful faces are just a pretty shield to hide the crazy, and he’s so freakin’ over crazy.
Been there, done that. He has the divorce papers to prove it.
Karma hits like a bitch.
Aspen needs a break. A long one that doesn’t include anything with a Y chromosome.
Not even one as tempting as her new neighbor who just moved in across the street. Men are trouble with a capital freakin’ T, and she has the ankle monitor to prove it.
The last man she gave her heart to was a police officer. A man whose life was dedicated to protection, and he was supposed to protect her heart—not break it.
She decides right then and there that she’s done with being the better person.
Everything happens for a reason.
A rash decision—undoubtedly regrettable, undeniably unforgettable. In the heat of the moment, Aspen’s actions with a tire iron and her ex-boyfriend’s brand new SUV land him in the ER getting stitches and have her seeing the inside of a jail cell for the first time.
It’s just her luck that the whole town is there to witness the result of her poor decision, including her police officer brother and the neighbor that already made it more than clear she was more trouble than she was worth.
House arrest never looked so good.
Hide your crazy.
Drew enjoyed the show, though. For the first time in a year, he’s thinking about his life, and how it would be a lot more enjoyable with a woman like Aspen at his side.
Maybe crazy isn’t so bad after all.

Excerpt

I slammed my fingers down on the keyboard, insanely annoyed that I now had to tell how fun the product was, despite the fact that the person I’d had the fun with was a douche bag.

A knock sounded at my door and I turned to glare at it.

“Who is it?” I yelled.

“You know damn well who it is. It’s the same person that’s been knocking at your door

for the last twelve hours,” Drew growled.

I shrugged.

“Go away,” I ordered him.

I could hear him sigh through the door.

“In my eyes, the marriage Constance and I had was over,” he started.

I picked up the nearest thing to me, which happened to be a half finished water bottle, and then launched it at the door.

“Go away!”

He left, but not without one last parting comment.

“I still have a few things left in that box that I want to try on you. When you’re ready, let me know.”

I glared at the box he’d just spoken about, and went back to my review.

If you’re looking for a fun, awesome thing to do with your significant other, this is the thing for you. It offers many benefits; but most importantly, it gives you time with your significant other. And, might I add, it’s totally fucking worth it. I’ve used it three times in the last two days. It’s like he’s here.

On a side note, the vibrator is not very proficient. It offers about two hours of battery life before they need replaced.

Not that I used it for two hours or anything.

Oh, who am I kidding?

I would’ve used it longer if I hadn’t run out of batteries.

Synopsis

Nate:

It’s nearly impossible to be surrounded by love but not understand it. My parents, my sister, and just about everyone around us has no trouble accepting that love. To give your trust to someone else and believe they would die before hurting you. I’ve witnessed it—I’ve seen the power of it—but I’ve also seen the pain. Because for me, I’ve only loved someone I could never have, and my biggest fear is that by giving her my love, all I would do is ruin her. I should have tried harder, but I’m not sure I can because I only feel complete when I’m with her.

Emberlyn:

The only time I feel like I belong is when he’s near. His infectious smile warms me straight to my bones. Any insecurities I have vanish with just a wink from him. A sliver of his attention makes me feel invincible. But all it took was one drunken night of truths for me to lose everything I had begun to crave. Now, I’m not sure how to move on because I only feel complete when I’m with him. 

He said I was too young. I said he was perfect. He said our families wouldn’t understand. I said we could weather any storm. He said he would ruin me. And he was right.
