RedemptionRBBanner   redemption_72dpi_500x750 (2) 5399e-goodreads-badge-add-plus_zpsa971cb04   Synopsis   A damned dream… He watches her every night, rehearsing alone in his theater, her beauty aglow in the gaslights. With every hour that passes, Marcus Stafford is more entranced with the passionate Gabriela Rozina, and the dream she refuses to give up. His obsession is dangerous and he knows it. She can never know who—or what—he is, and why he can never step nearer than the shadows. But her heartbreak is his undoing. Sorrow is a currency he’s traded in for two hundred years. A breathtaking stranger… Gabriela is moved by the stranger with the silver eyes who emerges from the darkness yet brings brilliant light to her world. Soon, she wants something more from Marcus than his mentorship with her acting. She begs for his touch, his body and his heart—but more than anything, to share his dark secret by giving him her blood. A doomed love? As the night draws near of Gabriela’s most vital performance ever, she is in danger of never making it to the stage—unless Marcus fulfills her wish and shares his life force with her. But in the doing, he risks everything, including both their souls. **This title is a reissue of a 2006 release. Buy Links

Teaser   RedemptionTease2 RedemptionTease1   Excerpt  
Silence. Had she expected something else? He's not there. It was the same inner demon that delighted in tugging at her insecurities before auditions…and long ago, had heckled her each visitor's day at the orphanage. A voice she fought now with shaking fists. The heckler persisted. He told you to go away once. He meant it. You didn't listen. He's not there. "No." She secured her stance tighter. Blast it, she knew what she felt, despite the dark theatre answering her desperate gaze. Freezing fingers of sensation claimed her skin more boldly than they'd dared this morning. Her heartbeat pounded like a triple timpani with each passing second into the night. Worst of all, she couldn't shed this breath-catching awareness…this super real sensation that he still watched her, followed her, haunted her. She moved to the edge of the stage. Stopped when her toes jutted out into the dark—and tried not to liken the view to the unreadable abyss of her senses. "Coward!" she accused into the chasm. "Backing down from the challenge, now that I've figured out a little more than I should? Hiding in your precious shadows, Sir High and Mighty Theatre Owner? Enjoying the drama of the hopeless actress, going slowly insane?" As she backed off the edge, she shook her head in slow-burning fury. "I hope you like tonight's repertoire, Marcus. It's the last you'll get. I don't play to ghosts." She pivoted toward the wings. "Or thieves." As she marched across the stage, she refused to let the dry heat behind her eyes liquidate. She refused to let her shoulders sag or her step falter. She'd give in to her humiliation only after escaping those all-seeing silver eyes. Wherever the bloody hell they were. Two steps from the stage left wings, she gasped and skidded to a halt. Two black-clad, black-booted legs stepped into her path. Her journal and reticule hit the floorboards between those boots with a forceful thwack. They were tossed there from a long-fingered hand. Gabriela's stare connected that hand to an arm, the arm to an endlessly broad shoulder, encased in billowy black silk. Her sights continued up the cords of a taut neck, to the spiritual intensity of Marcus's face. If it were possible, the otherworldly force of him radiated even more potent impact tonight. He looked hewn of dark gold granite under the gas lights, his hair swept around his high forehead like onyx turned to velvet. But most of all, he looked furious. He glared at the purse and the journal, then back to her. "I am not a thief." Gaby didn't pick up the items. Not yet. She nudged one foot forward, her reticule on one side, his boot on the other. She raised her stare, issuing the same challenge to his eyes. "You took them without my permission. You stole them." "I borrowed them." "Borrowed?" She sliced out an incredulous laugh. "Oh, this is a new way to play the scene." "Gabriela—" "You mean to tell me you decided to borrow my reticule—" "Aye.” "Planning a big evening out and didn't have one of your own?" "Gabriela." "And my journal. That’s the worst of it, Marcus. Did you stop to think what you took from me—the record of my deepest thoughts and feelings? Did you consider asking before you violated my privacy, my life?" For a long moment, he issued no reply. But with the slightest motion, he’d pressed his boot against her foot—beckoning her sights up to his again. She cursed the thousand butterflies in her belly that lifted wing along with her gaze. "If I asked…where would your answer have lie?" Gaby compressed her lips, letting silence stretch again. "I rest my case." He dropped his gaze. But not before Gabriela glimpsed a flash of silver light beneath his dark lashes—his surrender to a moment of such intense pain, his eyes looked as if they really did glow… She shook her head. This was no time for such hallucinations. Blast it, he'd wronged her, not the other way around. She snatched her pity back from him, recognizing it for the dangerous emotion it was. But she held on to the anger. "Well?" She locked her arms across her chest. Marcus didn't look up. "Well what?" She slid her foot away from his. Suddenly, her voice didn't come so strongly. "Well…did you read it?" He considered her question for what felt like hours. Finally, he looked up again. Slowly leaned toward her, appearing like a great beast used to watching every step for fear it would crush something. "Aye." Damn him. Damn him for saying it with such meaning, for looking penitent yet proud as he did. Again, as if he'd experienced every fear and feeling, every triumph and sorrow she'd expressed on those pages. "Bastard." "That will not procure you an apology." He towered closer. So mesmerizing. A fine wine in human form, dominating her senses, whether she liked it or not. "I am not sorry I did it." "Yes." She snorted. "I know." "Your words are beautiful." "Stop it." "I memorized them." "You think that's going to redeem you?" "Sweeting, nothing can redeem me." The night held its breath around them.
About Author   Hi there. I'm Angel: book lover, writing addict, hopeless romantic, pop culture geek and avid shoe lover. A bit about me... I've been hooked on books since I was a kid but it got worse in my twenties, when I discovered romances--the hotter, the better. Growing up in Southern California, with lots of surfer manliness surrounded me, was certainly a good boost for reading about delicious alpha guys and the women who adore them. When I learned I had a knack for telling these stories too, I guess you could say I was doomed--though my path toward romance novelist took a few detours via a concert-reviewing gig for my college newspaper (free show tickets...backstage passes...that was a no-brainer), artist interviews for a Beverly Hills dance music mag, personal assistant work for a record producer, dance club disc jockey, and a lot of fun in the hospitality industry.   These days, I still live in California, and have found an amazing alpha guy of my own who was brave enough to marry me. We live on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with our beautiful daughter. I have the best life ever, and never forget to thank the Big Guy Upstairs for it, either.

SYNOPSIS
When Paul Harris laid eyes on Ellie Caldwell the first day of high school, his heart stopped and never beat the same again. However, his best friend Lance spoke first and ended up with the girl. Paul watched them from the sidelines as he fell harder and harder, caught beneath rules of friendship and bro codes. Ellie secretly desired Paul, but he never made a move.
Ten years later, Ellie is living in New York City, worlds away from her ex and the man her heart always craved. A New Years’ resolution sends her back to the country, bringing Ellie face to face with her past.
A forbidden love unfolds between a small town cowboy and a big city fashion designer. When time and distance are no longer excuses, secrets and broken promises come in between Paul and Ellie. All because of the one thing that has always stood in their way … Lance Walton.

EXCERPT
I stepped toward the window and gazed out over the snow that had begun to fall across the landscape of rolling hills. Candlelight glowed around me, igniting the fiery need between my legs. The tap of his boots echoed in the silence, thumping toward me. The sound stopped right behind me. The heat radiated off him mere inches away. His breath tickled my neck, and my chest pounded with nerves and disbelief as to what was going on between us. Barely a few sentences were said, but years of sexual tension were about to combust.


“Are you still single?” I whispered. I knew what I needed, but I wouldn’t dare try to take him away. His hands glided down my arms. I closed my eyes to absorb his touch.


“Yes. Are you?” His answer sent a throb pulsing throughout my body. Silence passed for what seemed like an eternity until his lips pressed against my neck. My knees buckled from the intensity; he wrapped his arms tight around me.


“Friends, right?”


My heart gave way at his whispered question, but I needed to feel him before I gave him up forever. I turned around in his arms and stared at his lips with longing, licking my own before I answered.


“Yes.”

Alexandra “Alex” Walton has the life she always wanted for herself. A stable career with plenty of advancement opportunity, Paige, her best friend of a decade as her roommate, and best of all, her amazing boyfriend of three years, attorney Ryan Stewart.

One night Alex and Paige are out having some harmless karaoke fun, when an unreal opportunity presents itself.

Battling nerves and insecurities, Alex digs deep inside to find a confidence she had long forgotten, and embarks on a journey that leaves her questioning whether she still believes that everything happens for a reason.

“What happens when ‘Destiny’ comes along and changes everything?

Excerpt:

As I am stepping off the stage, a man approaches me and asks to speak with me about a singing opportunity. A bit skeptical, I invite him to sit down with Paige and me. He gives us both his card, which has his name and title:
Matthew Crench—Music Producer/Promoter
Soprano Alto Tenor Bass Records

He informs us that he’s hosting an upcoming showcase called Stella NoVA, and is looking for some local talent. He needs a vocalist to front a band that will play in the show, which is actually a contest. The prize is the opportunity to open for a band whose tour is coming into town in the near future. However, he does not disclose which band or what venue. He tells us he has been to a few other places and has seen me sing a few other times as well.
I look over at Paige and she just shrugs because that could be true. I know a place to sing karaoke every night of the week. Luckily for me, each of those places are in decent locations that Paige feels are nice enough so she doesn’t mind tagging along when I want to go, which is pretty often.
I have no idea how many times he has heard me sing or, more specifically, what he has heard me sing.
Just as I start to wonder what expectations he may or may not have of me, Matthew’s voice brings me back to the moment. “Listen, if I didn’t think there was talent here, I never would’ve come over to talk to you, Alex. By the way, is your name just Alex?”
My cheeks warm and I’m immediately annoyed with myself because I never blush over things like my name. “My name is Alexandra, but I prefer everyone just call me Alex,” I say with as much confidence in my voice as possible.
“That’s very pretty,” Matthew offers with a smile before he continues what he was saying, his gaze shifting between Paige and me. “I really think you have what it takes, Alex, to pull this group together that we’ve created and win Stella. Possibly to go even further. Only time will tell with that, but I really think you’ve got it.”
I must be smiling because as he finishes, his eyes are full of hope.
“Okay, I’m going to have a woman named Amber Wesley give you a call in the next day or so. She’s the manager of this group, so she will arrange everything for you to meet them, and then get rehearsals started right away. Stella NoVA is this coming Friday night.”
Still unable to speak, I must be looking at him like he has more than a few heads because he starts to laugh. “Hey, don’t worry, you only have to perform one song at the show. It will be just fine; I know you will be a perfect fit.” His gaze drifts to Paige as if for backup. He won’t get it from her; she’s on my side.
Paige puts her hand on my leg, giving a reassuring squeeze, and says, “Hey, I’ll be there with you every step of the way if you decide to do this.” She stresses the word ‘if’ so Matthew hears it loud and clear. I nod and exhale before finally speaking.
“Wow, that’s a pretty amazing offer. And I think I’d be crazy to turn something like this down.” His smile is wide but I square my shoulders and it soon falters a bit as he realizes I’m about to get serious. “But Matthew, please let me make this very clear. If I don’t like any part of this, I’m out. You understand?”
He starts nodding right away. “Absolutely, Alex, I wouldn’t have it any other way. If you’re uncomfortable with anything, just let either Amber or me know immediately. We’ll make it right or you can walk away. But I would hope you would at least give us the opportunity to make it right first.”
“Okay, Matthew. I’ll give this a shot,” I agree on an exhale, almost as if I had been holding my breath.
“Great, Alex! That’s fantastic news. I’m so happy you’re going to do this. Let me get your number so I can pass it along to Amber. I’ll also give you my personal cellphone number so that you can contact me directly if there’s any problems along the way, okay?” I nod, and quickly jot down my information, the pen shaky in my hand from the excitement coursing through my veins.
Matthew sits with us for another thirty minutes during which I’m called up again to sing another
song. For the first time in years of singing karaoke, I actually feel nervous, even though it’s a song I’ve sang so many times before. I know it’s because of the gentleman sitting at our table watching me.
When I return, Paige does her usual cheerleading thing and such, telling me how good I am, and this time Matthew joins in the praise with her. He tells us more about Stella and the location where it will be held, and a little about what to expect.
When Matthew gets up to leave, I immediately shoot out of my chair, hand extended and goofy smile straining my cheeks. “I can’t thank you enough for offering me this opportunity. I’ll do my best not to let you down.”
“Alex, I think there’s something very special about you, and I think it’s time that everyone discovers that, too. Don’t worry, you won’t let me down. I’m sure of it,” he says, shaking my hand a moment longer than necessary and flashing us an amazing grin.
He starts to gather his things to leave and for the first time since he introduced himself, I notice Matthew Crench has teal blue eyes that set off his light brown hair which is slightly longer on the top but nice and short on the sides. Paige surely noticed his attractiveness right away, and now with all of the business over and done with, she offers to walk him out with her own signature smile. He of course agrees and we say our goodbyes.
