This Regret eBook


Phoenix has been stumbling through life since her brother Adric's tragic death but after eight years, she is finally piecing what remains together. She has a nice apartment, a steady job and not to mention a fresh new 'relationship' with her childhood friend, Kade Haze. He's the sexy boy next door she never even dreamed of falling for, but can’t seem to stop the pull she feels toward him. Just when life began to make sense again and a feeling of normalcy was on the horizon, Phoenix's carefully constructed walls come crashing down. When walking into the tattoo shop one day, the last thing she’s expecting to see is Kellan Haze, Adric’s best friend no one has seen or heard from since the day they found her brother’s body. He’s nothing as she remembers him as a child, with his wild messy hair, tattoos that cover most of his undeniably sexy body and eyes so intense it makes her legs quiver with one look. The one thing even she can’t deny is the instant rush she feels just by being in his presence. But how can you choose between love and lust when one of these hold a dark secret, one that can crush your world to pieces and leave you gasping for air. Who can you trust when your mind is pulling you in two different directions and your heart has to choose for you? The Haze brothers are sexy, daring and possibly . . . dangerous. This Regret is a story of love, lust, betrayal and danger with an ending that no one saw coming.

Kellan Teaser-2


The blast of a .38-caliber revolver sends me crashing to my knees, landing in the road, with gravel digging deep into the flesh of my knees. My hands grip the gritty ground, as if my life depends on it, making my fingers bleed. Who knows, at this point, maybe it does. Even with my eyes closed, I can feel the world spinning around me, my body threatening to give up and lose what control I have left. Tears stream down my horror-stricken face and a silent scream is threatening to form in my throat. It hurts. It hurts like hell. That’s when I hear it. A bloodcurdling scream that makes my blood run cold. Except, it’s not my screaming that is roaring through my ears as I expected. It’s the screaming of a woman. A very angry, hysterical woman. The only thing I can decipher is, “Call 911. Somebody fucking call 911. There’s blood everywhere.” I can hear bodies shuffling nearby, some of them even tripping over me to get away, but I can only process one thought. He’s gone. Please don’t let him be gone. With force, I am yanked to my feet, a large hand smacking me across the face, causing blood to taste on my tongue. I try to focus, but my vision is too blurred to make any sense of who has control of my body and at this point, I’m not so sure it even matters. “This is your fault,” the deep voice growls as I spit blood onto his filthy boots. Narrowing his eyes, he wraps my hair securely around his hand and yanks my head back, hard, while his other hand tightens around my throat, squeezing. “You’re going to pay for this if it’s the last thing I do, you stupid bitch.” He lets go of my neck and shoves me down to the ground so my face is pressed into the gravel, his boot crushing into the back of my skull. Dirt and rocks dig into my left eye, making it even harder to see through the tears. I desperately look for the man that hasn’t only crushed then stolen my heart just to crush it again, but has also replaced a part of me that I thought was long ago lost. Realizing that my search is pointless, I just lay there defeated, feeling half-alive, but mostly dead. “Go ahead,” I whisper. “See if you can hurt me anymore than you already have. I dare you.” My body’s trembling, but I look him dead in the eye anyways. I’m not scared of dying. Not after losing the biggest part of me, my heart. “Losing him will be my last regret.” I shift so that I’m looking at the deep scars that cover his face. They make me sick. He makes me sick. “That and not killing you when I had the chance.”

Jill Prand ~ Walk Into Me Blog ~Tour Blitz








I know I will never get over her. Watching her walk away with him ripped my heart out and left it bleeding on the floor. But I can’t hide anymore. I have to face my life without her. ~ Brad


Brad has been in love with Lisa for as long as he can remember. One night years ago they took each other’s virginity but while it was the best night of Brad’s life, for Lisa it was a way to forget about Bobby. Or was it?

Brad re-emerges right when Lisa needs him most. Only Brad knows everything about her and when Lisa’s insecurities come to the surface the shoulder Lisa needs is Brad’s. Now Brad has to decide if he has it in him to trust his heart.

Brad
She left with him. I watched them walk out of the party into the cold night air with his arm around her. What is she thinking? He is only back for a few days and she’ll be alone again and she’ll be crying on my shoulder that he doesn’t call or write. I know she loves him and I can see the pull they have on each other, but really, why does she do this to herself?

I make my way over to the keg and get another beer. I might as well get drunk so I don’t have to think about him touching her. Joe is there and he pats my shoulder, “How you doing?”

“I was having a great time until a few minutes ago,” I say, pouring my beer. “Hey, let’s get a game of quarters going,” I suggest. Joe’s kitchen table is just right and it wouldn’t take much to clear it off. Joe’s not much of a drinker, but he starts rounding up some of the guys to play.

Richie, Doug, and Rob come over as I’m moving bags of snacks to the counter. Rob starts flipping a quarter while Richie looks in the cabinet for a glass.  “Good idea Brad, we need to get this party rockin’,” he says sliding the glass into the middle of the table. By that time George and Chris have joined us and a few of the girls are standing by to watch. We each take a few practice shots to get used to the table and then we start. Within 15 minutes I have downed 3 beers and started to get a buzz. I should feel fine by the time midnight comes around.


Suddenly she’s there, standing across the room, with tears running down her beautiful face. What the hell did he do to her this time? I stand up and tell the guys I’m out. I walk over and hold out my hand like she’s a wounded animal I have to get to trust me. She looks at me and falls into my arms.


“He doesn’t want me,” she cries.


I kiss her head and lead her out the sliding glass door.  “How can he not want you? I’m sure you’re wrong.” I stroke her back and god she smells great.
“We were making out...and other things, but when he found out I was still a virgin, he stopped and told me to get dressed. That he didn’t want to be the one to take my virginity.”  Her words come out all sniffly and I can feel my shirt getting wet from her tears. “I should have just done it with Steve and then I would be in his arms right now. I mean what does it matter if he is the first or someone else is? I don’t want to be a virgin anymore.”

I know the feeling but the only person I want to be with is currently crying in my arms about another guy. I’ve loved her since the sixth grade, when she sat next to me on the bus the first time. I can’t imagine my life without her.

“Will you do it?”  She looks up at me.  “Will you sleep with me Brad?”

My heart stops, she did not just ask me that. Just the thought of touching her like that has me hard. “You don’t mean that Lisa, you’re just upset,” I say as I brush the hair away from her eyes.


“No, I’m totally serious. I don’t want to be a virgin anymore and other than Bobby I can’t think of anyone I would rather do it with.”  She puts her hand behind my head and pulls me down for a kiss. She is tentative and sweet and I can taste her tears on her lips. I have waited so long to kiss her.  I lick the seam and her mouth opens to me. I moan because my whole body is on fire and I am not going to be able to stop. My hand fists in her hair and I pull it back to angle her head and my tongue explores every crevice of her mouth. I have wanted this for so long and now here she is letting me kiss her. I press her body against mine so she can feel how she affects me. Her hands start stroking my back and my shirt starts to pull up, my cock jerks when her fingers touch my skin and I suck the air out of her mouth. I know we have to move, we can’t do this here.


I break the kiss and stroke her cheek, her eyes are half closed and I hope she’s not thinking of him, but even if she is I am taking my one chance, “Let’s get out of here, my parents aren’t home,” I lean down and give her a quick kiss.
“I’m driving Jodi home; I can’t leave her,” she starts to pull away and I can see she’s thinking about what we’re doing. This is not going to end the way I want it to unless I get her out of here now.


“Hold on,” I tell her and take out my phone. “Hey John, Lisa is upset and I’m taking her home.  We will leave her keys with Joe, can you drive Jodi home?” I listen as he relays what I’ve said to Jodi and hear her ask where we are. “Let Jodi know she just needs to be somewhere else right now.” I pull her against me and stroke her hair. God, I love this girl and I hope to show her how much tonight. I am going to worship her body with mine. John agrees to get both Jodi and Lisa’s car home and I hang up. “Let’s give your keys to Joe and get out of here,” I take her hand and lead her in. I can tell she’s a little hesitant, but she’s still coming with me. Lisa hands Joe her keys without saying a word and walks towards the front door.


“Is she okay?”  He whispers to me.


“Bobby did a job on her again,” I pat his shoulder. “I’ll make sure she’s okay. What are friends for right?”


He knows I want to be more than just her friend. Hell, everyone knows, even Lisa, but it’s never been possible before. Now maybe he fucked up enough for her to give me a shot. I gotta believe this will be more than just one night.
I follow her out to my car and she is waiting for me. “Are you sure?” I ask even as I wonder why I feel the need to give her an out?


“I’m sure Brad. I want it to be you.”  She leans up on her toes and kisses me. If I don’t stop this I will never get her home. I open the door for her and she slides in. It only takes us fifteen minutes to get to my house, and we have the place to ourselves.


Taking her hand, I lead her up the stairs to my room.  I’m so glad my mother makes me keep it clean; I know there are no dirty clothes lying around.  I close my door behind us and just look at her. I have fantasized about having her here for years. Not that she hasn’t been here before, but never for more than doing homework.


She walks up to me and starts to unbutton my shirt, she doesn’t say anything as her fingers work from one button to another. I reach down and put my finger under her chin, she finally looks at me. “Lisa, we don’t have to do this.”
She runs her hand up my now bare chest to my neck and pulls me down towards her mouth, “I want this,” she says breathlessly into my mouth as our lips meet. My hands find her hips and pull her against me. I let my tongue explore her mouth, god she tastes sweet! My cock is jerking in my pants and her hand stroking my chest is driving me crazy. I move my hands under her short skirt and grab her ass. I’ve been obsessed with that ass, I love to watch her walk away from me.


I lift her up, she puts her legs around me, and I let my fingers explore her slit. Her panties are damp and I hope to god that is from me and not him.  I can’t think anymore. All I feel is her and I want to be inside her. I walk us over to my bed and place her on it. I stand up and take off my pants leaving my underwear on and she takes off her shirt and skirt. “God, you’re beautiful Lisa,” I say, laying down beside her.


I tentatively reach out for her breast and gently touch her nipple through the lace. I hear as she sighs, “I need you to touch me Brad.”


Losing all control, I pull the bra down and take her nipple into my mouth.  I suck her and lick that tight little nub. My cock is straining against her leg and I rub myself against her. She reaches behind her, undoes the clasp, and her bra falls away. I grab onto the other breast and kneed it roughly.


Arching her back, she moans, “More Brad, I need more.”


I move my hand lower and slip it under the silk into the wetness.  Lisa lifts her hips to meet my hand and I slip a finger into her, I stroke her a few times before adding another. She is so tight and I worry about hurting her.  She pushes her underwear down, lifting her hips and pushing my fingers further inside, she says, “That feels good Brad, please.”


“Please what?” I look up at her face.


“Now. I want you inside me now,” she says seriously as she looks at me. 

“Please.”


I pull off my boxers and reach into the drawer next to the bed to get a condom. Thank god for health class. I roll the condom on and position myself between her legs and push inside. It feels so good, she’s tight and I have to stop for a moment or I’m going to lose it before I’m totally inside her. I pull out almost all the way and push back in harder and feel her barrier give way. She inhales sharply and I know I’ve hurt her.  “Are you okay?” I ask.


She looks up at me with tears in her eyes, “I’m fine just give me a moment.”
I don’t know if I can, the urge to move is too great. I start to pull out and she shuts her eyes. I have to move and I start stroking slowly. She keeps her eyes closed I don’t know if I’m hurting her, but I can’t stop. I move faster and within a minute find my release. I lean down to kiss her and she lets me.


That was the best night of my life. The worst...was when I watched Bobby carry her away.







And don't forget about the first book! 
Fall in love with Lisa and Bobby all over again! 





At the age of seventeen, Lisa was broken when Bobby left. He was supposed to be her first. First Love. First Time. First Everything. No word for six long years. She moved away from the painful reminders sacrificing her relationship with her best friend Brad.

Saving Chloe

If you are looking for that quick sexy read that will keep you warm on those cold nights, then this is definitely one you should pick up. The writing style is fab, reading it was effortless  and easy.The characters played their parts to keep you gripped. This is the first book I have read done by Regina Frame.

We start off with Chloe who has just moved to New York to move in with her best friend. On Chloe’s first night in New York her best friend takes her to hip club, were a stranger asks Chloe to dance. And it all starts from there.

Parker is a hot rich and owns the hottest club in New York, but after having a crap childhood made Parker use women to get what he want’s, till he sees Chloe.


Parker's Past

Wow this is a super fast read. This book gives us a glance of the past and shows us why Parker is so screwed up and doesn't let anyone get close to him. The only thing he want from a woman is to get himself off and show them the door after.

I really enjoy Regina written, it was great to find out how things went down for Parker, I was great that most of the book was written in his POV.




I curse as soon as I see Elizabeth sitting in the waiting room. She obviously misunderstood my rule: never show up at my office. She's a beautiful woman with jet black hair, olive skin, surgically enhanced breasts. I curse myself for the growing hard on I have to deal with now. "What are you doing here?" I asked as I stroll past her without looking back. I walked around my desk and sit in the big brown leather chair.
I power up my laptop and go about my day without saying another word to her. Suddenly, I hear her clear her throat from across the room. As I glance up from my desk, I find her standing in my office with nothing but a red lace thong and matching bra, which barely covers her nipples. This has to be a dream! I blink several times to be sure that it’s not. How the fuck did she do that without me seeing her? I never missed a half naked woman...ever!
I try to swallow the huge lump in my throat and then look to the side to ensure the door was closed before sauntering over to her. I don’t care why she’s here, but I’m glad that she is.
"Well, Well, What did I do to deserve this?” I say as I wrap my palm around the back of her neck and lean in with our lips almost touching. Her breath paused when she gazed into my eyes, and that sent a surge of desire straight to my cock. "I believe I asked you a question, miss.” I say it a little harsher than I mean to, but she knew the rules before we ever hooked up.
She bit her lip and hesitated a moment longer before finally speaking. "Well, I wanted to bring you lunch today…”
I watch as she reaches behind her back and unhooks her bra, letting it fall to the ground. My cock strains against my slacks, begging to be released. I see no reason for more questions; that would come later. Right now there were more pressing items on my agenda. I grasp her upper arms and push her against the wall, causing a loud thud to ring through the room. For a moment, I’m worried that I'd hurt her, but when she

moans loudly against my mouth I remember Elizabeth liked rough sex. I’m okay with that; I don't do gentle. There was only one person I’ve ever done gentle with, and that was when I slept with Emma last night. Why am I thinking about Cassie when I have a beautiful woman standing in front of me right now? I slide my hand into her hair and pull hard enough to give myself full access to her neck. I kissed a trail from her jaw line, over her bare shoulder before stopping at her firm breasts. A low rumble escaped from my throat before taking her pink nipple in my mouth, flicking it with my tongue, and biting the pink pebble, causing her to writhe against me. As I slowly trail my hands down her sides, I grab her hips and lift her to align our bodies and grind into her. I hook my thumb in the small elastic band of her thong and rip it from her body. Our kisses are frantic by now, and our bodies are damp with sweat. I slide a finger into her slick folds, earning a gasp from her pink lips. I slide in and out of her body and circle her clit with my thumb. I can feel her body clamping down on my fingers. I continue to slide my fingers in and out of her body, faster and faster, and just as her release rushed from her body. As her orgasm neared its end, I pinched her clit hard, which causes her body to shudder. I reach into my back pocket for a condom and rip the foil with my teeth. I quickly roll it down my length.
I’m so close that I almost came just from rolling the condom on. I don’t give her body time to adjust as I pound into her, hard and deep; in and out at a frantic pace as if I can't get enough. I went faster and faster until my climax rushed through me like a wave in the ocean with my cock filling the condom with my warm release.
I rest my forehead against hers while I look into her passion hazed eyes, and it suddenly hit me like a ton of bricks...What did I just do? I just had sex in my office with a woman who broke the rules. I can't believe I let my guard down. What's happening to me? Since when did I not abide by my own fucking rules?
"You need to leave," I say tersely. I know I’m being an ass, but it is time to deal with the consequences. She stared at me in disbelief. Then she opened her mouth to say something, but quickly closed it.
I know my client will be arriving soon. How can I explain this? How can I tell one of my wealthiest clients that I just had a quickie in my office?
I place my hands on the wall on either side of her body, caging her in and closing the space only mere inches from her face. "You need to leave now. Don't come back. Don't call. Do you understand the rules now?"
