HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF SUCH A GENRE—THE LIGHTER SIDE OF DARK?
Everyone will have their own definition of "Dark" vs. "Contemporary", and perhaps there is a mixture of the two. I like to call this the “Grey” genre.
However, there is one thing for certain; you haven't ever read this type of story before. Blyss is an original, one of a kind storyline in theme, circumstance, and character action.
You will definitely need all three books in order to put together the pieces of this puzzle, but isn't that what makes reading fun? Book one sets the stage while you begin to embrace the thrill, the suspense, and the anticipation. There is a romance story amongst all the turmoil…you will just have to hang on for the ride.
CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE (with dark moments)
Blyss is something the world has been trying to create since the beginning of time, the ultimate aphrodisiac. A drug that's used against women with one single purpose in mind….
Julianna Oakley has just finished up her junior year at college and flies home to spend her last free summer with her father on their prestigious Georgia estate. Julianna isn't your typical spoiled, rich girl, prima donna. She's down to earth and has an independent streak a mile wide, insisting she make her own way in this world.
Nick has been setting the stage for a long time, and sparks fly when their separate worlds collide. She is Nicks' ultimate obsession, and he will stop at nothing to own her.
When Travis, Nick's right hand man, lays his eyes on the prize all hell is about to break loose.
Travis should know Nick is playing for keeps, and while Julianna is fighting for her freedom, a lifetime full of secrets and twisted perceptions slowly unravel as Julianna gets caught in the fray.
** Mature Audiences Only** This book is intended for mature audiences only (18+) and contains sensitive subjects, explicit descriptions of sex, drugs, dirty talk, strong language, and violence.
I slowly turn my head to watch Travis through the curtain of hair that has spilled over my blank hollow eyes. His fall on mine, transforming from expressionless to soft and almost-sorrowful. My shock is the result of the bombshell that had exploded around me, revealing the ugly truth of who these people really are. Human traffickers.
My God, what are they planning to do with me—my mind, my body, my life? I guess in reality, I am simply drowning in a sea of questions, each one leading me to more questions. I feel trapped by the same question circling my brain over and over—Why? I simply can’t believe this is happening to me.
I tried before not to give anyone of them the satisfaction of seeing my tears, but now they come unhindered. I’m too numb to stop them or brush them away from the slippery trail they make as they run over my cheek. I watch through my blurry eyes as Travis sets the tray of food down on the end of the bed. He quietly saunters his way toward me. I’m unable to focus on a coherent thought. For some reason, Travis doesn’t scare me; he probably should, but after dealing with Nicks harshness, I don’t think anyone can be as cold and callous as he.
