Excerpt

Harlow
It’s not like I didn’t know places like this existed, or people like Cash lived in them. I just never expected to have an up close and personal encounter. It’s so far removed from my world. I’ve spent my life in the poorest parts of the world with my parents, traveling in pop up clinics where they would treat and vaccinate and I’d teach. Since graduating University that is my life, six months abroad, six months in the UK raising money to do the next six months. 
Sniffing, an unpleasant thought crosses my mind. I push it to the back and lock it away.
“What?” Cash narrows his eyes, watching my face for clues. It’s probably written like a big fat Sharpie pen across my forehead, still I force a flat smile and shake my head.
“Nothing.” I say silently reminding myself; not the time Harlow, not the time to point out that his furniture probably cost more than I will make in my lifetime.
He drops his piles of letters, irritation clipping his words nice and short. “OK, we might as well get this out of the way if you’re going to be working for me.” He straightens himself to his full height and walks closer to me. I straighten too. I’m not intimidated by his height, it’s his aurora that has me shaken and he damn well knows it. So much so that it takes a few long seconds for my brain to process what he’s just said.
“Get what out of the way? Wait a minute! What do you mean, work for you? Why on earth would I work for you?” 
“Because darlin’ You. Owe. Me.” He steps closer with each carefully pronounced word.
“What?”
“Did I stutter?” He cocks his head and leaves me utterly speechless. He can’t be serious? I mean he looks deadly serious but really? What a complete fucking arsehole.
My blood is boiling at this point and it takes every ounce of restraint not to knock that smug expression off his face. I storm over a the desk in the corner of the room with a flashy Apple PC and wiggle the mouse to wake the screen. He walks up behind me, his body brushes mine. I ignore the sparks of electricity that crackle between. He’s too close to think. Leaning over, I find I have to bend with him or he’d crush me trying to reach the switch on at the wall. The screen lights up. It’s a compromising position and I happily elbow him in the gut to give me some space. He steps to the side, clearly amused a throaty laugh rumbles from him. I sit. It takes a moment to open my bank and a few seconds more to remember my login details.
“So how much do I owe you exactly?” I ask.
“Twelve thousand dollars for the flight and lets say two hundred for the transfer and accommodation. I’ll throw the food in gratis.” He says mater of factly. I snort.
“Oh you’re such a gentleman but you can do one, if you think I’m paying twelve grand for a flight I already paid for. I didn’t ask for the upgrade.” I’m standing now, indignation prickling my last nerve raw.
“But you took it.” He states.
“You didn’t give me a choice.” Exasperated, I don’t know him well enough to know if he’s playing me. It feels like a game yet, it doesn’t.
“Oh please, you had a choice. It just served your goodie-two-shoes ideals to pretend you didn’t.” He arches a knowing brow. Even if this was a game I’m done playing and the last thing I want in the world is owe this man a single damn penny.
“You are unbelievable you know that?”
“I’ve been called worse, now pay up princess.” He cups his hand as if waiting for my to hand over the physical cash into his expectant palm.
“How do you sleep at night.?” I snide and sit back down.
“Butt naked with the AC on full.”

Synopsis

We were never meant to meet; our paths shouldn’t have crossed. 
And yet they did.

As an undercover DEA agent, I always thought things through. I didn’t take chances, because I knew one misstep could have disastrous consequences. 

Until I met her. 
The little sister of my next target.

Lola was a feisty young woman trying to claw her way out of a bad neighborhood.
She was forbidden in every sense of the word, and not just because of the sixteen year age gap.

We were taught to expect the unexpected, but nothing could have prepared me for what was about to happen.

I fell hard.
I fell fast.
I freefalled heart first.

But there was a secret I was keeping, and if revealed, it’d destroy the lives of those I’d vowed to protect. 

One wrong move and everything could erupt in our faces. 
All that remained was one question…
Was she worth it?

Downfall ( Fallen Duet – Book 2)


Life was chaotic and unpredictable; made up of a series of events—a collection of firsts.

First crush.

First kiss.

First love.
Between the murky waters, I’d found salvation.

And it was all because of him—the broody alpha who appeared at the time I needed him most.

He promised me things, and showed me the life I could have.

But all it took was one moment to destroy everything.


Nothing else mattered.

No one else mattered.

It was him and me against the world.

Until it wasn’t.


I hadn’t known just how forbidden our love was.

I hadn’t known I’d been tutoring his son.

I hadn’t known about the family he had hidden away.

I hadn’t known he was cheating—with me.


I wish I could say I wanted to take it all back, but it’d be a lie.

A blatant lie.


He was my biggest downfall, but I’d never regret it.

Choosing him was never an option, the question was whether he’d risk it all.


Downfall is book two in the Fallen Duet. The final instalment in the two part, drama filled, heart felt, epic love story.

About the Author

Abigail Davies grew up with a passion for words, storytelling, maths, and anything pink. Dreaming up characters–quite literally–and talking to them out loud is a daily occurrence for her. She finds it fascinating how a whole world can be built with words alone, and how everyone reads and interprets a story differently. Now following her dreams of writing, Abigail has found the passion that she always knew was there. When she’s not writing: she’s a mother to two daughters who she encourages to use their imagination as she believes that it’s a magical thing, or getting lost in a good book. If she’s doing neither of those things, you can be sure she’s surfing the web buying new makeup, clothes, or binge watching another show as she becomes one with her sofa.

Marked Release Blitz Blog Tour – Book Review!

Hey guys! And welcome to my blog spot on the Marked Release Blitz Blog Tour! If you saw my previous post, you will have already been introduced to Eden and her friends and will know a little about what is in store for them in the first book, Marked, in Sloane Murphy’s series, Black Water Academy. Not familiar yet? Feel free to read the post here. There are also links to purchase Marked and a giveaway!

Before I start my review I just wanted us to take a moment to stand back and appreciate this book cover…

How absolutely stunning is it? It’s so unique and beautiful!

Anyway, without further ado, here is my review of Marked…

Book Review – Marked (Black Water Academy #1) by Sloane Murphy.

This was such a fantastic read. It’s like a cross between Harry Potter and Vampire Academy but with Sloane’s own unique supernatural twist to it.

17 year old Eden enrols at Black Water Academy after the death of her guardian, Dannika. Black Water Academy is a place where teen supernaturals go to hone in on their powers and learn how use and control them. Eden is a vampire but there is a lot more to her than meets the eye.

I love Sloane’s style of writing. It was written in first person and once again it was so easy to get swept away into a whole new world. I loved the characters, although I did wish for more character development, delving into their lives at the academy and more backstory but that’s just me being greedy and wanting more, more, more story! And no doubt we’ll find out more in the next book! Which, by the way, is it ready yet? I neeeed to know what happens after that twisty plot twist! I’m so impatient haha! I’m really intrigued by Ruby. She’s so peppy! It makes me wonder if she’s hiding something. I loved the romance in this book. I’m a sucker for romance and there’s a bit of a love triangle going on between Eden, Creed and Ethan. I was actually unsure about who I wanted Eden to get with and I’m still not entirely sure whether I trust Creed either. I know I’ve said it before but….is book two ready yet? If you love the supernatural/paranormal genre then this book is for you! I wholly recommend you read it!

I would recommend you read the first two books now!

Star Fire

Egypt changed them both in ways no one ever expected. As murder and dark arts cast a terrible shadow over both The Real World and The Realm. Mina’s connection to the mysterious Star Fire Sisterhood results in her becoming The Templar’s number one suspect.
Set amongst the snowy mountains of Switzerland and the ancient magical forests of France, Blake and the House of Beldevier are given just one chance to save Mina’s life – the recovery of The Holy Grail.
