Blurb

Layla Robinson is not crazy. She is suffering from unrequited love. But it’s time to move on. No more stalking, no more obsessive calling.

What she needs is a distraction. The blue-eyed guy she keeps seeing around campus could be a great one—only he is the new poetry professor—the married poetry professor.

Thomas Abrams is a stereotypical artist—rude, arrogant, and broody—but his glares and taunts don’t scare Layla. She might be bad at poetry, but she is good at reading between the lines. Beneath his prickly façade, Thomas is lonely, and Layla wants to know why. Obsessively.

Sometimes you do get what you want. Sometimes you end up in the storage room of a bar with your professor and you kiss him. Sometimes he kisses you back like the world is ending and he will never get to kiss you again. He kisses you until you forget the years of unrequited love; you forget all the rules, and you dare to reach for something that is not yours.

NOTE: Please be aware that this book deals with sensitive topics like cheating and death. 18+ Only.














Excerpt

I’m hit by a storm of desire to kiss him better. It’s a tornado, an avalanche in my body, and in one breathless moment, I decide to go for it. It’s okay. I can take the blame for it later.

I break the rules and reach up and kiss him. A feathery peck on his plump lips, it’s a kiss of solidarity, a kiss that intends to tell him I understand—but one isn’t enough. It only manages to ratchet up my lust. So I give him another, this time on the corner of his mouth, and then another one on his jaw.

It’s not enough, these small, barely-there touches. I want more, but I won’t take it. I’ll be good; I’ll only give.

Abruptly, he fists my curls and stops me. I look at him fearfully, ready to apologize—not for the kiss, but for being the kisser. His gaze reflects passion, stark, raving need, and I shiver, despite wearing layers and sweating with his heat.

“Are you trying to kiss me, Layla?” he rasps, flexing his fingers on my makeshift ponytail.

He couldn’t tell? Blush rises to the surface and I know I’m glowing like a neon sign. Swallowing, I nod. “Yes.”

He inches closer to me, still not touching—as impossible as that is—but infinitely closer. “You want to kiss me, Miss Robinson, you do it right.”

Oh God, does he have to call me that? Now, here? My spine arches on its own and my heavy tits graze the contours of his shuddering chest.

“H-How?” I ask innocently, belying the daring action of my body. His stern, professor-y voice is doing things to me, making me wild, uncontrolled.

For a second, he’s silent, just watching. I’m afraid he’ll back out from whatever this is, whatever insanity we’re about to commit—but then I sense the shift in the liquor-laced air as he opens his mouth and growls, “Like this.”





Author Bio

Writer of bad romances. Coffee Addict. White Russian Drinker. Imaginary Ballet Dancer and poetess. Aspiring Lana Del Ray of the book world.

I'm a big believer in love (obviously). I believe in happily ever after, the butterflies and the tingling. But I also believe in edgy, rough and gutsy kind of love. I believe in pushing the boundaries, darker (sometimes morally ambiguous) emotions and imperfections.

The kind of love I write about is flawed just like my characters. And I hope by the end of it, you'll come to root for them just as much as me. Because love, no matter where it comes from, is always pure and beautiful.

[New Release] DARK MASTER by Shana Vanterpool

Title: Dark Master 
Author: Shana Vanterpool
Genre: Erotic BDSM Romance 












Master was dark, dark, dark.

His touch.
His love.
His anger.

And soon, so was I.

Miya Reemond fell in love without knowing who Jaxon Damon really was. When she finds out that he’s a dominant in the alluring and dangerous world of BDSM, she wants nothing more than to be his submissive. Clouded by lust and obsession, she falls head first into the intoxicating and erotic lifestyle. She soon learns that love isn't easy, especially when it relies on her submission. Jax doesn’t know or do love, he only understands pain. Miya immediately turns his world upside down. She wants his heart, his good. But there isn’t any good left in him to give her.

Love doesn’t exist in his world.
She’s never had it.

Will they embrace the darkness, or will it swallow them both?

Book one in the Dark Masters Series is an erotic and sordid look into the tempting world of sexual dominance, submission, and love.

**This is an erotic BDSM romance. Not intended for readers under 18. Contains dark sexual content and a taboo romance.**






“We’ll go change your address tomorrow. Make it official. Make us official. We’re really doing this?” There was a question in his voice, a fear in his heart. “What happens when I tell you my secret, Miya? What happens when I want you more than life? And I tell you my secret and you can’t look at me any longer without seeing a victim? What happens to us?” He grabbed up my face. “What happens to me if there is no you?”
I wondered if thinking of our pasts reminded him that I did not in fact know his, and he knew mine. But all that had done for me was make me yearn for him more. He was my happy place. “Jaxon, do you know what I want all day and all night?”
“What?” His thumbs stroked my cheeks, the soft warm pads of his fingers sending tingles down my spine.
“You. I want you, Jaxon. I’ve never wanted anything in my life until I met you. I’m not going to hurt you. I’m not going to leave you. I won’t ever see a victim and I won’t ever want anything but you. You have to trust me, my dark master, the same way I have to trust you.”
He sighed, letting me go and heading into the house. “Trust is not something I understand.”
