One
unfortunate decision had bought me a life sentence, serving time alongside the
gang I’d worked years to avoid. My affiliation with Union 21 had wreaked havoc
all around me.
Then came
Diamond.
In a world
filled with neon-pink lights, glitter, and rhinestones, she was a flawless gem.
While she didn’t realize her worth, I recognized her value—priceless.
I’d stop at
nothing to have her, even if that meant going against the most powerful drug
lord around.
Friends
come and go, but Diamond is forever.

Welcome to
the most exclusive club in the world. The Novo Club. Novo is Latin for “change.”
Our members prefer the word “shift” though.
It’s the
hottest club in town.
The price
of membership is your heart and your secrecy.
All you
need to do to join is to be loved beyond your wildest imagination by someone
powerful with an…alpha side so primal it’s in their blood.
Are you
ready?
Good. Then
let’s begin.
The
Billionaire Shifters Club is a series featuring the five Stanton siblings, four
brothers and one sister who are all part of an ancient shifter family living in
modern America. The subterranean club-within-a-club beneath the streets of
Boston, Massachusetts holds secrets only the Stantons and their fellow shifters
know.

Author: Diana Seere
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: September 13, 2016
Blurb
When Lilah Murphy started serving drinks at the exclusive Platinum Club,
she never expected she would be on the menu.
Biotech billionaire Gavin Stanton had one taste of the new, curvy server
and his craving could never be satisfied until he had her fully. Completely.
Eternally.
Fate brought them together, but a centuries-old secret could tear them
apart, for the Stanton family holds a shifter legacy that no human has ever
threatened.
Until now.
Gavin Stanton is the billionaire CEO of a Boston biotech firm. He’s also
a werewolf, the son of a large, ancient family with roots in the British
aristocracy. His work is his life. But then he feels the Beat—an irresistible
urge to mate with Lilah, a beautiful human who inflames his passions like no
other—and he abandons everything he thought he knew in his need to claim her.
Lilah Murphy is broke and desperate. All she wants is a job to support
herself, her sister, and her ailing mother. The last thing she needs is to get
involved with a rich, powerful guy who would discard her after a few hot nights
together and get her fired at her new, high-paying job. But she, too, feels the
Beat. She hears him in her mind, feels him in her soul, and the urge to answer
the ancient call is undeniable. Is she strong enough to embrace his secrets—and
her own?
The Billionaire Shifter’s Curvy Match is the first in an all-new series
of hot (did we mention *hot*?) romances about the billionaire shifters and the
women they’re fated to love.

Excerpt
The sound
of screeching rubber on asphalt drowned out the rest of her words. They both
paused, expecting to hear cars colliding. Instead, there was eerie silence—and
then the plaintive cry of a wounded animal.
A dog.
They both
ran to the window. Outside, the usual neighborhood lowlifes loitered on their
grubby street, where the most vibrant business was a check-cashing place. And a
bar. Actually, a lot of bars.
And was
that a limo? What the hell was one of those doing here?
The dog’s
cries continued.
“Smoky!”
Lilah gasped, turning away from the window, her heart pounding. “That bastard
hit Smoky!”
Smoky was
the neighborhood stray. He should’ve been ill-tempered, given his bad luck to
live on the streets, but his was the friendliest face on the block, looking
happy to see you, always eager for a pat, his tail wagging.
The limo
might’ve killed the poor little guy. Taking three stairs at a time, Lilah flew
down the stairwell to the stained security door and out the rusty gate to the
sidewalk.
The usual
drug dealer was standing on the corner, interrupted from talking to whoever was
inside a parked silver Chevy. Under that car, only a few feet from him and
still whimpering, was a huddled mass of pale fur.
Smoky.
Jess was right
on her heels. “Oh, no.”
“We have to
help him.” Lilah glanced up and down the street, preparing to cross, her long
hair flying as she whipped her head back and forth to make sure it was safe.
Jess
grabbed her arm. “You can’t! That’s the dealer who stabbed somebody last year,
isn’t it?”
“Different
guy,” Lilah said, although it wasn’t. She strode into the street just as the
driver of the limo was getting out. She couldn’t leave Smoky to die in the
street with those scumbags.
Then she
saw the limo driver pull his arms back, hands on hips, revealing a
barely-concealed gun on a holster around his chest. The window in the back of
the limo remained up, and why shouldn’t it? Why would some rich dude want to
get dirty? Why would he care if he’d run over some poor homeless dog?
The tiny
scar above Lilah’s left eyebrow began to throb. It jolted her, making the scene
before her look shimmery. Unreal. She pressed her fingertips into the tiny
divot and hoped the throbbing would go away. The last thing she needed now was
a three-day blinding headache.
And she’d
run out of her meds. No money.
“What’s
wrong, Lilah?” Jess grabbed her elbow and pulled her out of the middle of the
street. She’d just frozen there, staring at the back windows of the limo.
Lilah could
hear Smoky’s whimpering and the city traffic, but it all came as background
noise through the throbbing in her head. It wasn’t quite pain. The pulsing felt
like it pierced her brain, a second heartbeat she couldn’t quite follow.
Her vision
was fine, and that meant it wasn’t a migraine. Then what was this?
And why did
it worsen when her eyes flickered toward the back windows of the limo?
“Let’s get
Smoky,” Lilah said, though her mouth felt like it was filled with cotton.
Jess had an
arm around her. “I’ll get him. You’re about to faint.”
“I’m fine.”
Lilah forced herself to move, shooting an icy glance at the neighborhood felon
before she squatted down to the car’s rear bumper.
“Lilah, you
look really pale,” Jess insisted, frowning. She looked so much like their mom
when she did that.
“Here,
puppy,” Lilah cooed, reaching out a hand. She knew the biggest danger was if
Smoky ran away again and hid where nobody could help him, so she grabbed him by
the scruff of his neck and pulled him as gently as she could out from under the
car. Luckily, Smoky was a small thing, barely fifteen pounds, and she got him
bundled up in her arms without having to drag him far.
He relaxed
in her arms, his shivering more from fear than any injury. Thank goodness.
But as soon
as she stood, the throbbing, pulsing pain returned. Her gaze was pulled to the
back window of the limo, now open. To the man sitting in the shadows.
Him. Her head felt like someone had
dropped a brick on it, her body filling with heat and lava.
It’s him.
What was
the matter with her? She had to get Smoky inside. She didn’t know anyone who
rode around in a limo, so why did she feel like she did?
Him.
It didn’t
matter. She had to get closer. She had to see him.
Holding
Smoky in her arms, Lilah took a step toward the limo, then another.
Jess
snagged her elbow. “Lilah, no! You can’t! That driver has a gun—”
Lilah was
beyond reason, the pounding turning into a word, a word that had no sound, no
form, no sense.
Him.
Him.
Him.
That voice.
It pounded like a hammer forging steel. She continued to advance on the shining
black limo, barely noticing when the driver climbed inside and slammed the
door. She was fearless in her uncontrollable need to see that face, to know he
was real.
You’re
real.
Jess was at
her heels. “Lilah, please—”
The limo
peeled out, its tires screeching as it drove past her only an arm’s-length
away. Two bright blue eyes, glittering with otherworldly sharpness, met hers
through the open window. Gold highlights tickled his hair, a honey brown that
curved up at the neck, a little too long to be all business, with waves she
wanted to sink her fingers into. A strong jaw, set firmly, and those wild,
seductive eyes… oh.
Oh my.
And then
the voice changed in an instant.
Mine.
Mine.
Mine.

About INKED

INSTANT ATTRACTION IS A POWERFUL THING.

Six months of dancing around each other
led to one explosive night
and two weeks without a word.

Only then did I learn the truth:
The man I’d wanted since he walked into Sailor’s Grave Tattoo Parlor was
actually an undercover cop.

And the worst part is,
I don’t even know his real name.

BUT WHAT IF ATTRACTION ISN’T ENOUGH

For over eight months I held back.
Except for that one night when I couldn’t fight it anymore.
I’d wanted her from the beginning,
but I should have kept waiting until my secrets weren’t between us.

Now, I have the ultimate challenge before me:
Convince the inked goddess of a receptionist
to at least let me keep her safe,
even if she won’t give me another chance.

Excerpt
“What are you willing to give me?” Because I want it all.
“I’m undecided.” I hate the look on his face. It’s fear,
he’s afraid I’ll hurt him again.
“So just tell me to stop when I cross a line. I’ll only go
as far as you trust me to go. Deal.” He nods his head hesitantly as my hand
finds the top button of his shirt, I undo it slowly making my way to each
before his shirt is completely undone. I only stop to briefly trace the tattoo
on his chest. God, I missed this body. His twelve pack casts a heavy shadow
from beneath the shirt and I run my fingers over his rock-hard stomach and up
to his chest, leaning in to kiss the tattooed area.
“This okay?” I ask from pressed lips against his chest
pulling back to look into his eyes.
“Fucking you isn’t my problem. It’s what to do with you
after.” Smacking his drink down on the bar top he puts his hands on my waist,
walking me backward away from the bar and then jerks me forward eliciting a
surprised yelp as I’m hoisted over his shoulder. “See that’s the problem”
bringing his hand down on my ass hard, “The way I see it, this is all you get.
I’ll give you my cock but that’s it. That’s the only deal I’ll make with you.
Take it or leave it.” It’s a start.
Without a hesitation I whisper, “Take it. But it won’t be
enough.” He places me back on my feet and looks me up and down, his expression
mirrors my own frustration.
“I hate that fucking outfit. I want you naked. Now.” His
words leave little room for debate.
“What? What’s wrong with my outfit?” I look at him like he’s
lost his mind.  
“It restricts access…” crossing his arms he grins, waiting
for me to disrobe.
“I’m not taking off my clothes in the middle of this room.”
He has lost his mind.
“We’re alone and last I checked it’s a fucking sex club.
Take your goddamn clothes off so I can bury my dick inside that tight wet
pussy, Drew.”
I’m fucking dripping the minute he growls at me but I take
all the time in the world, slipping off each shoulder giving my tyrant his own
private show. The more time I take the more his jaw tenses. God, I love riling
this man up.  
“You realize the longer you take the harsher the punishment.
I will take out every one of the seconds, on that ass tonight.”  
“Promises, promises.” I challenge back. He grabs his cock
adjusting the bulge, groaning with the motion.
“You have ten seconds to get it off then I’m ripping it off
myself.” His demeanor couldn’t be more serious. He will tear this very expensive,
amazing outfit off my body without so much as a second thought.
“Ten.” I start on one of my heels unhitching the ankle
strap.
“Nine.” finishing, I move to the other.
“Eight.” The strap around my ankle gets stuck as I start to
panic. I’m never going to make it. Fuck! I’m so hot, I don’t know which outcome
I want more. His punishment or my victory.
“Seven.” Fuck it, I rip it off my foot and pull down my
right shoulder strap starting to shimmy.
“Six.” I start looking around the room, “Five.” I scope out
where I could go to buy some more time. “Four.” I love this outfit.
“Three.” Son-of-a-bitch.
“Two.” Struggling with the zipper it finally comes loose and
I push my jumpsuit down to my ankles.  
“One.”

Shoulders

Chapter One

Misty

 

A promise to her mother, a full tank of gas, a Glock in the glove compartment.

These things were all Misty Moon needed to guarantee that today was going to be better than yesterday.

The car had belonged to her mother, Lucille Moon. Misty drove the black Cadillac with as few stops as possible from Charleston, South Carolina, to the very middle of the country.

She slept in the back bench seat at rest areas, with her handgun tucked under her black leather jacket, which she used as a pillow.

When she got to where she was going, she slapped down an offer on the creepiest house in town and didn’t answer any of the real estate agent’s nosy questions.

“I just have to have this house.” Misty knew all about the disclosures and she didn’t care.

But to appease the agent, she played nice. She didn’t trust a single soul to help her in this godforsaken town stuck in the middle of a vast cornfield on the edge of a flyover state, but dared not show it.

“So, are you moving here for work?” the agent asked.

Misty shook her head. “No. I’m independently wealthy. I’m here to work on my art.”

The independently wealthy part was a lie; she’d used all her mother’s life savings to put an offer on the house.

As for the “art” part of the story; what she didn’t expound upon was what her art actually was. She was here to find a murderer and write about her experience.

The agent’s heavily made-up eyes brightened. “Art, huh? Well, it just so happens the high school is looking for an art instructor.”

Misty nodded blandly. “Well, like I said, I’m not looking for a job.”

The agent didn’t seem to hear her. She whispered conspiratorially, even though there was nobody else at this house to hear what she was whispering about. “It’s a little bit of a scandal. Seems the old art teacher was involved in misusing some funds. That teacher was my cousin’s mother-in-law.”

Misty was flat-out not interested in the job, but she was interested in talking to the agent some more, who seemed to like local gossip. Misty could use a contact who was apt to flap her gums.

Of course she is,” Misty said, thanking the agent for the information. People are all connected in a small town, arent they?

Days later, as she signed her way through the quick closing at the law firm of Banks, Phillips and Owens, with many old corn-fed Iowan men in suits watching her every move as they sat around the conference table, Misty reminded herself to be careful. Some see it as a good thing that folks are looking out for each other’s brothers, sisters and cousins in Middleburg. Others, like her mother, would say all the interconnectedness is a major reason why things went so very wrong back in 1983…

In moments, the house was hers.

She politely shook everyone’s hands at the bank and accepted the “welcome wagon” bag of goodies and coupons. She declined any offers from the associates at Banks, Phillips and Owens to show her around town, or the offering of phone numbers of their brothers’ and uncles’ residential contracting businesses.

If all went well, Misty’s time here would be brief. She would not be in Middleburg long enough to require contractors to fix up the wretched place.

She showed herself out and dismissed herself with, “I’ve got everything I need, thank you all.”

One taste of her was never going to be enough. I knew it the moment I
laid eyes on her. And I knew it from the moment she kneeled for me.
Roisin was everything I always wanted, but she was also nothing I ever
expected. Her words captured me, her poise intoxicated me, and now, I find
myself obsessed.
My need for her runs rife through my veins, and I can’t stop it, not
matter how hard I try.
I want her.
I will claim her.
She will be mine.

Excerpt
“Are you aching, pet?”
“Yes, Master,” she mewls when my lips find the hardened
nipple pressing against her bra. I suckle it into my mouth, my teeth grazing
the bud, tugging it gently. The sounds she makes are like a drug. A fast hit of
heroin, cocaine, something that slams into you and grips you in its feral
claws.
“Tonight, you’ll go home and you will not come. Do you
understand me?” My voice is rough and husky, filled with want. She’s so
beautiful, so fucking perfect that my restraint is a barely there thread,
pulled taut, ready to snap.
“I… I…”
“Don’t make me spank you again,” I warn in a no-nonsense
tone.
“No, Master. I understand,” she pouts, her lips pursed in
frustration.

This dark and twisted tale of ownership will make your blood run hot. Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Amazon Bestseller Vivian Wood writes dark romance as OLIVIA RYANN.


No one is coming to save me. I am his Fiore now, his flower.
To do with as he wishes. And he wants everything.
Monster wants my tears, my screams of pleasure, my shudders of fear.
In return, he also brings me these moments of startling clarity.
I know who I think I am. I know who he says I am.
I feel I’m somewhere between, lost in an ocean of pain.
When he trots out my brother with a wide smile, I’m forced to choose between them.
It’s a simple choice: the only family I have left, or the Monster I’m increasingly drawn to?

Olivia Ryann is the dark romance pen name of Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Amazon Top 20 Bestseller Vivian Wood. She loves poetic phrases and bits of melodic memories. She adores dominant, hard men and soft, fragile women with backbones made of steel. She wants to put them together as often as possible, in unconventional ways.

 

 
 
 
 
My Review
In this story we find out more about Fiore and Arsen’s backgrounds. Fiore is left with a choice between her captor and a family member. Which option will she choose? I can’t wait to read the next book to find out. A sexy, drama filled continuation of the dark, mafia romance series.
