Title: Beautiful Deception ~ Pride and
Honor 3
Author: Ember-Raine Winters
Release Date: June 30th, 2017
Genre: Romantic Suspense
This is the third book in the Pride and Honor Series, but it can be read as a standalone
Marcy
He knows. He knows what I did and there is no way he will ever forgive me. That’s the least of my worries. Now, that secret, that little boy that holds my heart in his hands has been stolen from us. I’ll do whatever it takes to get him back. Even if it costs me my life.
Mac
Marcy had always been mine. I thought she always would be. A misunderstanding ruined that. Ruined any chance for us to be happy. She stole that chance… that life. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to forgive her. The truth is I never stopped loving her, and I’ll do whatever it takes to save her.
 
 
 
The plane ride had been over five hours so far, and it felt like the longest of my
life. I didn’t know what was going on with Marcy and Kenzie, and worse, I had
no idea where my son was, and that was killing me the most.
Twitch was doing his nervous twitchy thing and it had me on edge. “What’s the matter,
brother?” I asked warily.
“I got a bad feeling about this.”
“Shit. Really?” I got up from my seat. I knew better than anyone what Twitch’s
feelings resulted in. He had an uncanny sixth sense when things were about to
go bad and fast. I couldn’t sit still any longer.
“Mac, it’s going to be okay, we will get him back,” Tasha said vehemently.
I nodded but continued pacing. There was nothing else I could do until we landed
and saw what the situation was. Tasha was upset too. Marcy was her friend and
Tasha’s dad, Barnes, was responsible for this mess. We all knew he was behind
it, but we didn’t have one fucking detail yet.
The worst part of this whole shit show? That I was still pissed at Marcy, and I was
feeling completely guilty about that. How could I be so angry with someone and
still love her at the same time? It had been twelve years since she left me,
and yet I still thought of little else. I should have fought harder. I should
have stayed in Baltimore and made her talk to me.
The flight attendant came out and told us to put our seat belts on in preparation
of our descent, so I sat down next to Tasha. I never stopped moving though. My
knee was bouncing up and down burning off my nervous energy.
“You still love her don’t you?” Tasha placed her hand on my knee.
“It doesn’t matter.”
“Sure it does.”
“No, Tasha. It really doesn’t. She made her choice. She knew what her decision would
do to me and she did it anyway. She knew how important having a family was to
me and she stole that from me. So, no, the fact that I still love her makes no
difference because she obviously never loved me.”
Tasha glared at me for all of five seconds before her tirade began. “That’s bullshit
Mac and you know it. I could tell when you all rescued us from Doug’s basement
that she was still in love with you. I could tell the day that Twitch proposed
to me and she screamed in my face about Twitch ruining everything that she felt
guilty for what she had done. I had no idea what it was at the time, but I
could see it. You both need to get over your hang ups, stop being stupid, and
just be together because everyone can see that’s what you both want.”
“Okay, babe,” Twitch said softly, seated on the other side of her. “That’s enough.”
She looked angry and I had no idea why. I had heard Marcy had freaked on Tasha that
morning but I wasn’t sure why.
Even if I hadn’t found out the way I did, I would have found out eventually,
especially now with all the craziness. I thought about that in silence the
whole drive to Brock’s compound.
“Shit, is that smoke?” Griffin asked when we were about a mile away. Everyone started
yelling at once.
“Go, go, go. You have to go faster,” I yelled at the same time Tasha said, “Holy
fuck, holy fuck, that’s Brock’s compound.”
“Tasha, it’s okay. I’m sure they are fine. Brock has cameras everywhere. They saw it
coming.” Twitch attempted reassurance while rubbing her shoulders. “They had to
have seen it coming.”
He added the last part mostly to himself, but he looked at me with a grimace. I
knew he was as worried as Tasha, but I was jumping out of my skin. Marcy had to
be okay. She just had to be. There was no other option. I was not losing them
both.
The gate was a twisted pile of burning metal and I thought the worst. The thick
column of smoke got thicker and hung heavier in the air the closer we got to
the house. Griffin was driving as fast as he could, but there was very little
visibility. If we weren’t careful the smoke would cause an accident and we
might never make it to Pix.
The bright orange flames engulfed the house. My heart nearly beat out of my chest
when I saw it.
“Shit, what do we do?” Trey asked, panicked.
“Get on the phone with emergency services and leave an anonymous call about the
fire. We will search the surrounding area for any sign of them,” Griffin
commanded.
“If they were in the safe room, there is a possibility they are still in the house.
How do we get in there to check?” I asked completely irrationally.
“We don’t.”
“Fuck that. I’m going in there and you’re not stopping me, Griffin.”
I jumped from the SUV and went around to the back. Grabbing my bag, I rifled
through it and found a small hand towel and a bottle of water. After pouring
some on the towel, I dumped the rest on my head.
“Bro, you can’t go in there,” Twitch said from behind me.
“Yes, I can, and I am.” I shoved past him towards the house.
“Mac, you can’t.” Tasha attempted to get in front of me.
“Don’t. He popped his shoulder out of place trying to get to you when you were locked
in that basement.” I pointed wildly at my cousin. “He was a mad man when it
came to looking for you. I will move you out of my way if I have to, Tasha.”
Thankfully, she stepped aside after that. The closer I got to the house the hotter it got.
It looked like whoever had set fire to the house had busted the door down
first. I got down low and held the towel over my nose and mouth and went
inside. It was like a horror show in there. The heat was so bad I felt like my
blood was boiling and my skin was searing off.
“Marcy,” I yelled through the towel over my mouth. “Marcy.”
Please God, let her be okay.
That was when I heard a slight tapping. A support beam had fallen and held the door
to the saferoom closed from the outside. The tapping was faint, and I prayed
that the room was air locked. If not she would have smoke inhalation by the
time I was able to get to her.
The beam was on fire and blocking the door. Removing my jacket, I wrapped it around
my hands and grabbed the only part of the beam that wasn’t burning and pulled.
I used all my strength, but it refused to budge and I knew that I couldn’t
continue my heavy breathing, or I would be dead in minutes.
A hand came out then, and grabbed another part of the beam. Trey and I lifted it
together and moved it away from the door.
I pushed the door open and that was when I saw her. All five-foot-two beautiful
Pixie laying on the floor. Her face was ashen, and I could tell she was barely
hanging on. Picking her up, I cradled her to my chest and silently prayed.
Trey and I tried to move quickly, but the house was falling down around us. Every
few steps, we had to dodge a board or a beam. The floor beneath was losing its
integrity as well.
“Hurry Trey, or we’re gonna be buried alive,” I shouted just as the floor gave way
beneath my foot.
“Mac,” Trey bellowed, not realizing what had happened. “Come on, man. We gotta go.”
“Take her and get out of here. As soon as I get my leg out I will be right behind
you.”
Trey started to argue, but the look I gave him was lethal. He grabbed Marcy and
headed stealthily to the door.
When they cleared the front door, I covered my mouth with the edge of my shirt to
get a breath of air and then attempted to get my foot out of the floor. Every
time I pulled, a searing pain shot through it. I gritted my teeth and tried
again, but I was already coughing from the lack of oxygen in the room. I laid
my head down to give myself a moment and try to catch a breath, but it was
useless. Just before everything went black, I felt a pair of hands pulling me
back towards the flames.
  
Beautiful
Delusions
 
 
Kaylee
One night was all it took. One accident and I
could no longer outrun my past. The terror I’d escaped was hot on my trail and
the only person I could turn to was the man who’d hurt me the most.



Griffin

 

One moment was all it took. One wrong word and
she was gone from my life. 
Fifteen years later,
I had a chance to make things right. I could even make Kaylee mine…
If the monster didn’t destroy her first.

 

Beautiful Sacrifice
 
 
Tasha
Being a cop, I didn’t have any choice, but I really wish I hadn’t got mixed up in this case. My dark past is catching up to me ever since he barreled into my life without a care. It terrifies me that he sees right through me. He could be the one to save me . . . or break me. 
Twitch
It was just a job. Until it wasn’t. By then the sexy little redhead had her claws in me. Now, she’s in my life and I’m lost. How am I supposed to keep the demons from her past from eating her alive? I don’t know, but I will do whatever it takes to make her mine.

Coffee With Characters: Marc Ross Blaque Beauty and the Billionaire

Thank you so much for joining us today! Please introduce yourself! Tell us who you are and what you do! Are you the main character in the story or a supporting role? My name is Marc Ross and I am the male lead in Blaque Beauty and the Billionaire.
What do you do for a living?

I am a (very) successful property developer and hotelier. My mother would say I am a work-a-holic and she would probably be right. My father and grandfather were both developers and it’s in my blood. There’s nothing like the feeling of conceptualizing a hotel or a residential or commercial space and seeing that vision come to life. My properties are almost like real people to me, with their own personalities and characters. I’m also a tech start-up investor.
Erin

How old are you?
39 years young!

Tell us about your story. What is it about and what role do you play?
I am the guy who was lucky enough to meet and fall head over heels with the amazing Marlee Winters. She’s unlike any woman I have ever met and It’s going to take a bit of doing for her to see that her first impressions of me are not wrong. But she’s worth it!

Can you tell us about one of your most distinguishable features?
I’ve been told I have beautiful eyes. I actually got them from my dad, who was rather embarrassed by them because he was a no-nonsense man who didn’t like unnecessary attention. Our eyes are a weird sort of medium blue with darker blue in the irises. It’s not something I think about much until someone mentions it but, yeah, it’s kind of cool.

Do you have any birthmarks or tattoos?
Yes, I have a tattoo on my left shoulder blade of an archangel in memory of my older brother Philip who died in a skiing accident in Switzerland. I also have a tattoo of an Egyptian Ankh below my left ribcage. I got it on a spring break trip to Alexandria with my best friend Everett.

Would you ever want to go hang out with your author? If so, what would you do together?
You know what, I would actually. She is a homebody and I think she should get out more. We both have a love for art, French cuisine and classical architecture so I would fly her to the South of France for a castle tour. Knowing her she would find a way to incorporate it into a new book!

If you could have a super power what would it be, and why?
I wouldn’t mind the ability to read minds. It would have saved me a lot of trouble and money over the years, lol. I can’t think of anything else. I’m a very fortunate individual who has been given opportunities to do a lot of good in the world. But the ability to know exactly what people are all about, what they really want or need or what they’re afraid of could be pretty useful.

What is your biggest pet peeve when dealing with others?
I’m not the most patient person, lol. I don’t like when people don’t know what they want or what they need. To me it means they haven’t taken more time to figure out who they are and what makes them tick. I’ve learned that if you don’t have a strong sense of yourself there are people out there who will be happy to try and define you. I also don’t like phonies. Wealthy people seem to attract superficial people so I’ve gotten to the point where people who are honest and genuinely kind with integrity attract me the most.

What would I love the most about you?
Lol, I’m probably the only billionaire you’ll ever meet with a separate kitchen just for baking – I love to cook! I created a special cupcake filling just for Marlee. Her dad is from the South and her mom is Jamaican so I used passionfruit, mango and strawberries to make a one of a kind dessert for her parents’ 40th wedding anniversary party.

What would I hate the most about you?
Oh wow! Honesty is the best policy, right? I can be a little possessive, as in a lot. I’m not controlling but I’m not big on sharing the people I care about. My mom says I’ve always been that way lol. I should also learn to be a better listener. I’ve gotten used to giving orders lol.
Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Yes, probably a little too accurately – it got me into some hot water!

What is your idea of a perfect day?
Spending time with my dreamgirl – basically convincing her to let me send my plane for her for weekends at the lodge. She’s also really focused on her career. We’re both very active. I’ve gotten her into hiking and she’s gotten me into trail riding. So a perfect day would be riding in the Rockies, dinner at an inn tucked away in the mountains and then a game of strip Scrabble by the fire in our suite. We have yet to finish a game 😉
What is your greatest fear?
Wasting my opportunities, my potential. My father and brother left way too soon and now it’s all on me. They were both good men, strong men who believed you haven’t lived unless you leave something good behind. I can die happy if I’ve done that.
Someone is secretly in love with you. Who is it and how do you feel about that?
Whoa! Um, well, a few months ago I would have hoped that person was Marlee! Now I know it is so, yeah, I’m really in a good place now. I’m afraid, however, that you’re referring to my ex. That situation is so absolutely over and I guess I would just say that I wish this level of happiness I now have with Marlee for everyone else out there.
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A property developer like my father and grandfather. I was the one kid you did not want to play Monopoly with!
If you knew you were going to die tomorrow, what would you do today? Honestly, spend the day with my mom and my sweetheart. We would simply spend the day reaffirming what we mean to each other.
What is the one food you can’t live without?
Sushi!
If they turned the book into a movie, who would be cast to play you
Lol, tough one…maybe Jakob Dylan? He’s not an actor so is that cheating? Okay, maybe a less squinty version of Eddie Cibrian lol.
