ONE NIGHT CHANGES EVERYTHING

Rich. Sexy. The catch of the century.
Grayson Forbes is intelligent, gorgeous and heir to a mining fortune.
He’s thoughtful, gentle and caring.
Everything a woman wants in a man.
Beautiful women climb over one another to get into his bed.

Until one night.
One night that changes everything between us.

***Second City Signing 2015***



Whoooooo
          The week leading up to Second City Signing was nothing but crazy. Finding time to pack all my things, making sure I had enough make- up.  Not only was I going Second City Signing, I was going to be there as a PA and a blogger.

          Friday I spend most of my day travelling to Birmingham. Massively worth the early morning and long time traveling as soon as I got there that’s when all the fun began. Meeting up again with good friends.
          Friday night everyone got together for the talk with Lorella Belli. Followed by Carrie Anne Ward giving us an insight into the world of BDSM. It gave us all the time to catch up, meet new people and off course let our hair down and relaxed before the big day. Off course we had a little drinkie, help kick the nervous for the next day.

          Saturday morning, yet another early start making sure we had time to get sorted, looking as perfect as we can look, before dragging ourselves to the big yellow fun bus was the start of our day then off to St Andrew's. Talk about reminding me of my school days.




    



























      As soon as we got there it was all hands on deck, sorting everything out making sure the table looked perfect. All the stuff what to hand for throughout the signing. Shortly after finishing sorting the table, we ran around collecting as many pre-orders and possible. Leaving more time to get things signed later on. The signing seemed to go so quickly, I spent most of my time at the table while it was really busy as soon as it had calmed down a bit I went off to do the blogger side. My poor feet was sore for all the running around I did, definitely worth it though.  With the author’s all been spread around the venue, it gave me time to see them all and talk. Not to forget getting them to sign half a ton of goodies.



         



























Saturday Night, time to let our hair down and get to the dance floor. It was amazing seeing so many people dressed up. It gave us all some time to sit and catch up, while having a little drinkie. Watching everyone get there grove on and singing. Even though I didn’t have the guts to get up and sing.

          I must say for myself I had a wicked time, and loved meeting some fab new friends. Thank you Cassie, Kelly and Stalker H for all your hard word making sure that everything ran as smooth as it could. Thank you to all the Authors that attended you all rock. 

Aaron thank you so much for taking all the photographs it’s so nice to see what I missed.

 Let’s not forget the Models it will be dam hard to forget them.
 XO
 to all the team at

A moment in time, that’s all it took. Beauty, pain and tragedy.

Xander “Pretty Boy” Todd was a demon in the ring. A professional MMA fighter with a career that had the world a buzz—but now it’s gone. Or is it?

Eden Sommers had her dreams of an international modelling career within her grasp—and lost it. Gone within a few seconds, leaving nothing but pain.

How do you go on, when the one thing that defines you is suddenly ripped away—only to leave scars and a hollow shell in its place? Has the beauty gone forever? Or has it just retreated—to now be hidden, and dormant; guarded by the inner demons?

Can these two wounded souls find the inner strength to fight back the demons together and find the beauty in their lives once again?

To do this, they must first accept—The hardest demons to defeat are the ones inside. They’ll have to be BRAVE.

Excerpt


Fear struck through me. I hated the conversation directed to me, particularly when there were strangers involved. I could have cursed Tori. She knew better than to put me on the spot like this. I could just see her smirking face across the table from underneath my lashes as my throat started to constrict.

“You’re more than welcome to come along and watch. I encourage people to come along and see for themselves what it’s all about.” Oh, there was that voice again.

I was torn. I didn’t want to look up. I didn’t want to see the embarrassment and the man with the beautiful voice looking uncomfortable when he realised what my face looked like.

Surely there was a limit to the torture?

Manners, fear, self-consciousness all warred within me.

The silence around me was deafening. I could tell they were all waiting. I could feel three sets of eyes on me watching and wondering if I was actually going to respond. Finally I took a deep breath. What did it matter if he rejected me? It had happened before, and it would happen again. I could do this. It would hurt, but I was no stranger to pain, both physical and emotional.

Very slowly I raised my chin and turned just slightly towards him. I didn’t say anything. I couldn’t because my throat was closed in fear and uncertainty.

The first thing I noticed was the dark jeans that hung on narrow hips, then a white T-shirt that emphasised his flat belly and defined pecs. Bravely, I raised my eyes a little higher and the pecs ran into a set of wide shoulders. There was a hint of a tattoo peeking out from under one of his short sleeves. It only made his bicep look more delicious and enticing.

I took one final harsh intake of air and allowed my eyes to complete their journey. They travelled up and up the column of his corded neck to his wide angular jaw.

His full lips were slightly turned up in what looked like a half smile or was it amusement? I could only image how it would look once the shock registered when he saw my face.

Above those lips, that looked far too sensual for any man, was a long straight nose with a hint of a flare to the nostrils. The knot in my stomach tightened even further as I finally tilted my head back far enough so my eyes could meet his.

Every muscle in my body was tensed waiting for the shock, horror and embarrassment I was about to see, once my scars registered with his brain. It was an involuntary reaction I realised. Nobody could hide it, no matter how hard they tried. It was just the shock and surprise. I don’t blame them for their reactions, it just hurt that was all.

I raised my eyelids that final few millimetres and forced my eyes to focus on his. Right then and there the world stopped spinning for me. Time halted. My sisters faded into the background and I looked into the eyes of one of the most compelling people I had ever seen. Oh, he was handsome, but he was so much more.

But that was not what had me struck dumb—nope that wasn’t it.

It was his eyes—those bottomless pools of black onyx. I did a mental double take. For eyes so dark they should have appeared cold and icy.

But they didn’t—they weren’t cold at all. They were warm and rich. Right then was the first time I could recall in the last five years, a stranger looking at me with warmth in their eyes. Not shock, not pity, not embarrassment. It was warmth.

The shock paralysed me. I didn’t know what to do or how to act. My brain was shorting out. Nothing made sense. Somewhere in the back of my mind I registered my leg being kicked under the table, but even that didn’t break through my connection with those eyes. I wanted to swim in them, wrap myself in their warmth and burrow down tight.

I have no idea how much time passed.

Finally, he thrust his hand forward to me and without conscious thought, I placed my hand in his to shake. What happened next shocked me even more.

He lent across the table and pulled me into a loose hug and brushed his lips against my left cheek.

My brain was fried and my nerves were all misfiring. Nothing made sense. I was so far out of my comfort zone.

He pulled back slowly and gave me a smile that I’ll remember for the rest of my life.

Then he spoke and his words seemed to swirl around me in a caress.

“Hi Eden. I’m Xander Todd.” Suddenly, I realised I had no box to categorise him into.
