Once upon a time, I was Fallon Dunbar.

Rock and roll, drugs, and bad decisions were the life I lived.

I’d fallen so deep into the dark rabbit hole that I was certain I would never make it out alive. People like me didn’t get second chances. People like me didn’t get lifted from the darkness. So when the opportunity showed up, I had to take it.

I walked away from everything I loved, everything that was killing me, and I became Fae Dunham. After that, I hid behind makeup, long sleeves, and a closed-off heart.

All was well until I met Dane Pearson. He wasn’t convinced of the new me, and whenever he was near, I felt like the old me, the real me, filled with passion and a love for music. Every day was a struggle of self-discovery. Every day was a fight to not fall back down the rabbit hole. And every day, somehow, someway, I slowly began to discover what it meant to find myself.

It was a hysteric ride, but it was ours. And I wouldn’t change a thing.

I was Fallon Dunbar.

I was a drummer.

I was confident, strong, and driven.

I was a junkie.

I am dead.

The full boxes scattered around my small one room apartment made it feel more real. The sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach made it feel so wrong. The new title and job made it feel surreal.

I am Fae Dunham.

I am the assistant editor of Raging Underground.

I am unsure, nervous, and scared shitless.

I am in recovery.

Staring into the full length mirror I had just hung up on the back of the door in my new room, I saw the shell of what I used to be, the life I could no longer have. The only traces left of my old life were the lip piercings I refused to take out. They were my favorites and they were staying. People like me don’t get second chances, but for some reason, I was standing knee-deep in one.

There’s no turning back now.

I will live again.

You want to know more about me? Well, let's see...

I am just an average twenty-something following my dreams.  I have a full time "day job" and by night I am an author.  I guess you could say that writing is like my super power (I always wanted one of those).  I am the lover of wine, sushi, football and the ocean; that is when I am not wrapped up in the literary world.  

Please feel free to contact me to chat about my writing, books you think I'd like or just to shoot the, well you know.

Life doesn't come with a play book. Preston Wade knows that better than most. Now, the former quarterback's career-ending injuries are not the only scars he hides. 

Desiree Evans might be a catch, but she isn't ready to be anyone's trophy. Fresh out of law school, she has big goals and none of them include scoring the affections of Tampa's leading man, on or off the field. But, in more ways than one, his presence in her life could be a game changer. 

Never let them see you sweat and always watch for the BLITZ!

I squeak in surprise as a warm pair of hands snake around my middle and pull me into a hard chest behind. My heartbeat picks up, along with my breathing, as his voice purrs in my ear.

“You’ve been here all of fifteen minutes and you’re already trying to make me jealous.” Hunter chuckles and the mingled smell of men’s soap and sweat enter my nose, a heady combination.

“Actually, I was looking for you out there.” I smile when he spins me around, though my grin instantly fades at the sight before me.

“Is that so? Well, here I am. Do I hold a candle to any of them?” He smirks and my mouth is so parched I cannot form a coherent sentence.

The sight of the players on the field is nothing compared to the virile man standing inches away. Hunter was sex in slacks at Synergy, but seeing his stomach glisten with sweat and witnessing the flex of his biceps underneath the sleeves of his red practice jersey are damn near causing me to detonate. I have never been so close to such raw power and sex before. I run my tongue along my bottom lip as I will my brain to come up with something intelligent to say.

Hunter notices my hesitation and deliberate perusal, gifting me with an appreciative once over of his own. A large hand moves to the hem of his jersey on my body, a thought I suddenly love, as he gently tugs it away from my stomach with dexterous fingers.

“This looks amazing on you. Maybe a little too good for your own safety. I’ve always played offense, Desiree, but seeing you in my fucking number right now, makes me reconsider tackling. You, sweetheart, would be a blitz of epic proportions.”

My mouth parts slightly, his words making me grow needy for a man I have only just met and so help me God, I want. My libido screams, “tackle me!”

“Well, I would say you wear that jersey pretty well yourself, Mr. Griffin,” I respond instead, my brain finally catching up with my body and resuming control.

Hunter nods his obvious approval, though it is clear he knows how amazing he looks without my saying so. I imagine women remind him daily.

“GRIFFIN. QUIT PANTING AND GET YOUR ASS DOWN HERE,” a raspy, older male voice yells from below. My cheeks flame as I turn to find an entire team of uniform-clad men staring at our interaction with smug grins and low whistles. My gaze hits the concrete below as I hear most of them laugh in response to my being caught.

Hunter’s forefinger lifts my chin, seeking my eyes as he offers a sincere smile. “That’s my cue, baby doll. Rob will take you upstairs to enjoy the show. This won’t take long. It’s more of a meet-and-greet for the new recruits.” He leans in and places a warm, lingering kiss on my cheek before taking the stairway down, two at a time. I remain rooted in place, enjoying the view of him leaving. Yep, it is every bit as good as his approach.

Michele resides on the outskirts of Raleigh, North Carolina with her two amazing children, Kaylee and Matthew, and her husband Michael, who support her quirky habits and creativity each day. She is a hopeless romantic whose passion for reading and writing first appeared during her husband’s last lengthy deployment. Her debut novel, Ethereal (a military paranormal romance) released in September 2014 with two more books expected to follow in the Guardian Series.

Life is not a love song …

I learnt the hard way that labels stick. Laura took “lovely”, and the teacher branded me “lady-like”. 
It stuck with me, even through my high school years. It felt like that was all I’d ever be.  

Until everything changed.

Lonely Lia. 
Little Lia. 
Lia the liar. 
Lia the lost …  

Now the choices are endless. But I don’t want to be any of those either. My name is Lia Stanton. And this is my story.

She walks up the stairs, and straight away my heart leaps from my chest, beating a staccato that raps into my throat, the pulse point at my wrist, all throughout my body. I go from steady to strung-out in the blink of an eye.

"Mum," I call, and this time on the staircase, she spins around.

"Yes?" She frowns.

Don't go up there,

I try to say the words, but my stupid voice won't work. My mouth moves, but no sound comes out, and Mum tilts her head to the side. "Lia ..."


I try to scream so loud my lungs hurt, and still, nothing.

Don't go into your bedroom.

You can't see that.

It will ruin you.

"Lia, you're normally such a sensible girl." She sighs and turns her back, then walks up the stairs again.

My voice mightn't work but my feet do, and I charge after her, leaping up those stairs two at a time. She floats down the hall toward their room, and I run, run as fast as I can, and grab onto her shoulder just as she tightens her grip on the door.

"Lia, will you drop it?" She turns to face me. "I'm just going to see if your father is home. What harm could I possibly do?"

My stupid voice is without once again, and as I try to yell at her, to tell her that no, she shouldn't go in there, that seeing what's behind that door will destroy her—

She twists the handle.

She opens the door.

And she screams.

And straight away I'm back on the couch, hearing that blood-curdling noise that chills me to my very bones, that signifies the start of the end of life as I know it. I race up the stairs to try help her, to try and make it stop, but when I get there she has collapsed in the hall.

She's broken. And nothing I try to do will fix that.

COVER REVEAL: Defy (Brothers of Ink and Steel #3)

Title: Defy
Series: Brothers of Ink and Steel #3
Author: Allie Juliette Mousseau
Genre: New Adult
Release Date: September 22, 2015

When rugged bounty hunter Ryder Axton is hired to hunt down a cartel leader for a seven digit bounty, he doesn’t expect to find federal witness Rachel Farrington being held captive in the perp’s basement. For Ryder, shit gets personal and the routine arrest becomes a rescue mission. And he will stop at nothing to make Rachel safe.

Farrington has been in the basement for seven days. She knows the only reason she’s still alive and unharmed is because of her market value in the overseas sex-slave trade. That’s how Eduardo Miguel plans to keep her from testifying after seeing him brutally murder her fellow student—and how he’ll manage to pay off his enormous debt to the cartel for a botched drug deal at the same time.

Terrified and desperate, Farrington will do whatever it takes to escape her captors—including kill—the first opportunity she gets. So when Ryder, a scarred, rough, foul-mouthed, smooth talking, criminal tries to persuade her he’s rescuing her—even though she knows it’s just another part of the act to manipulate her in attempts to keep her calm and “undamaged” upon delivery—she sees her chance.

But when two rival gangs wage war above their heads and Ryder and Rachel are forced to take cover in the dark and deadly east Texas bayou, trusting one another for survival, they both realize they might never see another sunrise.

Can they both defy death . . . again?
