Belle Pearl Release Promo: 11/12/13

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18751923-belle-pearl?from_search=true


- BLURB: 
Belle Pearl, is the fifth book and the conclusion to Arianne Richmonde’s bestselling books in The Pearl Series: Shades of Pearl, Shadows of Pearl, Shimmers of Pearl and Pearl; the tumultuous and heart-rending love story between forty-year-old documentary producer, Pearl Robinson, and French Internet billionaire, Alexandre Chevalier, fifteen years her junior. This book continues from where we left off in Pearl, from Alexandre’s point of view, and continues the story BEYOND Shimmers of Pearl, so has a completely different ending than the trilogy. As with Pearl, there are many scenes in this novel that do not feature in The Pearl Trilogy. At only twenty-five, Alexandre Chevalier is a billionaire. His social media site, HookedUp, is more popular than Twitter, more global than Facebook. With his devastating looks, alluring charm, and his immense wealth, he has women falling at his feet, desperate for his attention—ex girlfriends and an ex-fiancĂ©e who simply cannot let him go. Although his heart is set on only Pearl, she tests him to his limits and proves that she is even more damaged than he first believed. Alexandre’s dark and dysfunctional past makes him crave a normal relationship with Pearl but he soon finds out that she is anything but your average woman. However, he believes that they are both two peas in the same dysfunctional pod, made to ‘dis-function’ together, and is determined to make their union work. But Pearl puts Alexandre in a position where he is made to choose. His loyalties are split, his patience torn. After many trials, misunderstandings, and revelations of dark secrets, their wedding finally ensues and it looks as if their happily ever after is sealed. Until something unforeseen rips their world apart. This is novel #5 - the conclusion to The Pearl Series and is by no means stand-alone.

You never forget your first love. Burn couldn't either.

When blonde-haired, blue-eyed Brody McGraw asks her out, Burn can hardly believe her luck. He’s the kind of guy she can only dream of. In record time they start dating, and she is thrilled when she can finally change her Facebook profile status to ‘In a relationship’.

“First rule of business – gotta be a win-win situation, know what I’m saying?”
“Eh, well, I don’t have a business and I don’t have much to give you. How much are you wanting?”
“I don’t want your money!” His tone is scoffing.
“Oh, okay.” I scratch my head and look at him. Maybe I should talk about me changing my story about the gun incident? “There’s nothing else I can give you that you’d …”
I want you.” His voice is almost a whisper.
I look at him with huge eyes. “I’m seventeen!” I blurt.
He shrugs.
I frown. “I …I don’t do shit like that. Ever.”
“Ever?”
I shake my head.
“How come?” His tone tells me he doesn’t believe me.
My turn to shrug. “I’m doing it right. I’m waiting for the right guy before I give it up.”
His eyes turn to slits.
“And I want to be eighteen when it happens.”
“You serious?”
“Yeah.”
“Not even for white boy?”
“Not even for white boy.”
He folds his arms across his chest. “Don’t know if I believe you. I mean, you’re here asking me to save your boy, but you tell me that you haven’t given it up to him as yet, even though you …?”
“Love him? Yes. But I guess he doesn’t want to go to jail either.” I take a deep breath and cover my eyes with my hand. “Can we talk about something else? I’m getting really awkward here.”
He smiles.
“Back to your question – seriously, what do you want from me in return?”
“That.” Again, his voice is soft but serious.
I peer at him in disbelief. He wants my virginity? Is he fucking nuts? “I told you, I’m seventeen. You’ll go to prison and a pretty boy like you will get lots of sex there.”
He smiles.
“I’ll wait till you’re eighteen.” His voice is way too serious for my liking.
I stare at him, flabbergasted by this whole conversation. “That is the most indecent proposal I have ever heard …” I turn away from him then turn back to him. “It’s crazy. It’s absolutely crazy!”
My rant does not faze him. “That and three dinner dates with you.”
My jaw drops.
“Since I have to wait six months for my payment, it will be a ‘meanwhile’ scenario.”
“I …I …” This is so fucked up. “Why me? I mean, there are so many other girls around who are more experienced …”
“Cos you’re white boy’s girl. I want … what he has.”
“Because I’m … “I shake my head in disgust. “That is really fucked up, Dreads. It really is.”
“Maybe. But it is what it is, know what I’m saying?”
Of course I know what he’s saying. “And if I say no?”
He runs his hand slowly over his face, then locks eyes with me. “Then we have no deal.”
I stare at the ground as his words wash over me. “You’ll wait six months?”
“I’ll wait six months.”

Review: I had the pleasure of reading this book a few months ago and I still think about Alex and the story in this book- it is NOT what you are expecting when you start reading it, trust me!



The love affair that blossoms so quickly between Alex and Aubrey is not what either is looking for during a speed dating seating accident at The White Orchid one night.....but it is exactly what they both come to need before long at all.


Then Alex finds Aubrey's journal and reads a piece of information that changes everything in one instant. When Aubrey goes to France to escape the pain of a terrible misunderstanding, everything becomes so......
Sorry, that's all you get! Read it!!!! Read it now!!!

Five stars and Erik Fellows? Yes, sir, you ARE Alex! <3 Kellie 

Synopsis: Always wanting to be a writer, but not having much experience with men or romance, Aubrey sets out to find her inspiration with the help of her best friend. Just when she thinks all hope is lost, she meets Alex Logan. He’s beyond handsome, well dressed, and is known to be a player—perfect for the role.

The unexpected happens and Alex becomes more than just an inspiration to Aubrey, but a misunderstanding leaves her heartbroken. Before an opportunity arises to straighten things out, tragedy strikes, and Aubrey’s world is turned upside down.

While Aubrey is trying to cope with her new life, a new chance at love arises. Can she find it in her to trust again? Will Alex be able to win her back? Or will she take this new unexpected chance at love?





Shards of my Heart Cover Reveal: 11/12/13





When I took the vows for better or worse, I meant them. Then I started to wonder if there was a limit as to how much worse I was supposed to endure. Am I supposed to stay if worse means that me and my daughter are in danger? What if the worse was because of a mental illness? When is enough simply too much?

This is a different kind of love story. Read Nina’s journals for a tale of hope, strength of spirit, and unconditional love.





Shane loved walking around without a shirt on, showing off his muscular physique.  Honestly, I loved seeing him, loved touching his bare skin.  In that moment, he leaned his back against the counter and faced me.  Without thinking, I walked into his open arms, inhaled his scent to imprint it upon my soul, and kissed the broken heart tribal tattoo on his chest.
Shane: Are you trying to heal my broken heart?
Shaking my head, I responded.
me: Nope.  Just loving you.
Shane: Good.  It can’t be fixed.
He looked down and instead of wrapping me up and pulling me closer, he stiffened and stood straight.  
Shane: Sometimes, I think you are only attracted to me because you want to fix me.
His demeanor had me tensing up.  Somehow, I knew what I said next was going to be really important.  Shaking my head, I found the words I sought.
me: Baby, until I got to know you, I didn’t even know you were broken.
That softened him.  My words worked.  They were magic.  He admired my ability to communicate, to speak eloquently, to make an impact through simple speech.  Words did not come easily for him.
He held me close.  Bending his head, his chin in my hair, he finally spoke what was clearly bothering him.
Shane: You make me want to be a better man, but I don’t want to change.  What are we going to do about that?
With my chin on his chest, staring up into his pained eyes, I told him the truth.  There was only one way I knew to make this work.
me: I’m going to love you through it.  No matter what, come what may, I promise I’ll love you the best I can with all that I am.
I meant it, too.  



Must be he liked my response because within seconds, his lips closed the distance to mine.  That kiss.  That love.
