“Eva, are you here?” I wait for a few moments to pass, praying she’s not really gone, that she’ll appear beside me and wake me from the nightmare I’m stuck in.

“What do I do? How can I come back to living? I have nothing left, mon amour. You left me and took my heart with you. I know you didn’t want to leave, but you’re gone and I don’t know what to do. You were the only thing that ever made sense, and now you’re no longer with me. I don’t know how to go through the next forty or fifty years without you.”

I look up at the majestic moon. Maybe she can give me some insight as to why I’m still breathing.

“I’m struggling, mon amour, really struggling. Every moment of the day I think of you, and I pray my time to find you is near. Please tell me, whisper a word, touch me with your warmth, anything. I just need you to guide me through this. I need my angel’s soft voice to take my pain away.”

A gentle wind kisses my cheeks, softly drifting around me, caressing my skin with tenderness. I blink quickly and stand, leaning my arms against the railing.

“Are you here?” I ask quietly, hoping to hear her voice just one more time. “What can I do to touch you? Even for one short moment, to see you, to hold you, to kiss your warm lips, just one more time.”

The wind tenderly embraces me, enveloping me in a sensation so intense my heart begins to pound inside my chest.

“Show me what I need to do,” I beg the breeze.

It continues to dance around me, stopping for a moment only to start again with the same delicate choreography.

She’s here, she must be. I’ve called on Eva for help, and she’s here to save me.

Mon amour,” I whisper as I close my eyes.

A delicate floral scent floats past me. I catch just a small whiff of it and know my love is near.

“Help me survive,” I sigh, hoping Eva can help me rip down the walls I’ve built so high around me.

I stretch out my arms while tilting my head up toward the sky. “Show me,” I say in a breathless whisper.

A tingle runs over my exposed throat, a soft, small brush awakening the life inside me. Buried deep inside this dead body, a tiny flicker tries to illuminate my dying soul. The curtain of gloom is struggling to lift. Deep inside, I can feel it trying to fight the pull of the heavy weight.

A flashback to our wedding takes me back to the day Eva walked toward me, her hair loosely falling over her shoulders, a ring of daisies around her head, her feet bare as she walked in the sand holding one single yellow tulip. Her smile was so beautiful; her eyes alive and full of love.

Eva shyly lowered her gaze as she glided to me, the rays of the sun sweeping over her blonde hair and making her look like she had a halo guiding her to me. The smell of the ocean intoxicated us as the salt clung to our lips.

“I’ll never fall as long as you are near.” It was a sentence I had meant with every fibre of my being when I spoke during our exchange of wedding vows.

I can feel the tears breaking through. I let them roll down my cheeks, allowing me to remember the good times, the loving times. The love we shared, the way my heart ached for her touch, how my blood heated whenever Eva was near me, the small smiles she’d give me when she thought I wasn’t watching, falling asleep holding hands and knowing we’d never let go.

“I’m sorry I let you down. I’ve fallen and I don’t know how to stand again.”

The wind swirls around me, nuzzling close to me, gently stroking me, encouraging me with love and the strength to rise and finally breathe.

“I will try to stand without you. I’ll try and make you proud of the man you married. I am so sorry for giving up.”

Author Bio

There's something about the written word that is pure magic.

Possibly it's the fact there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering they're capable to change our lives.

How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds?

I like to think of myself as 'unique'. My stories aren't for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be 'normal'.

Normal is subjective.

I prefer to be known as a person who's never been 'bound by custom' but is 'unique by choice'.

I hope you do read and enjoy my stories.

Wayward Son
Collette Kindrick is running. On her anniversary, she caught her boyfriend sleeping with someone else. Heartbroken, she packs just enough to get by and runs to the city that never sleeps.
A chance encounter brings her into Dominic’s path and she falls head over heels for the biker. Dominic Davoli has had his life planned out since her was born. He is destined to be the next Wayward Saints president. Meeting Coley was never part of his plan, but, once he’s had her, he can’t let go.
One wrong move lands Dom in jail, threatening everything he is trying to hold on to.
Will their differences tear them apart, or will Dom claim Coley as his ole’ lady and keep her in Vegas with him?
Walking inside the restaurant, the hostess just stares at us like a fish out of water. "Two please," Coley says giving her a dirty look.

Pulling her to me, I kiss the side of her mouth. "Down babe," I whisper against her hair. She pinches my side and I can't help but laugh. She's feisty when she wants to be.

The hostess finally registers that Coley said something and asks how many. I can't help but chuckle. "Two," I state with a hint of laughter. Coley elbows me and I pull her closer to me.

"Right this way," the hostess says leading us towards the back of the restaurant. "Are you celebrating anything special?" she asks eyeing me some more.

Before Coley can say anything, I reply. "Just taking my ole' lady out to dinner. Every day with her is special," I wink at her and she tightens her grip on my hand. I hear the hostess huff out as she shows us our table.

"Your server will be right with you," she turns and walks away with one more glance in our direction.

Letting Coley slide in first, I slide in next to her and wrap my arm around her. "I like when your feisty side comes out."

She gives me a dirty look and opens her menu, ignoring me.

Once she's decided on what she’s going to order, she finally says something. "Is that how it always is with you and the female population?" Grinning, I tuck my face in her neck.

"Yeah, but the only difference from before is that I would have taken her to the bathroom and fucked her before I left." I feel her tense. She elbows me and catches me right in the rib.

"Fuck," I groan. She turns and gives me a dirty look.

"Babe, I said before. Now the only one I want to fuck in the bathroom is you." She narrows her eyes at me and then turns her attention to the server.

“Hi, what can I get started for you?" he asks, staring directly at Coley.

Shooting the server a dirty look, he stops staring at my girl, and finally just takes our order. "Not so great, huh?" she says with a smile. She thinks she's clever.

By the end of dinner, I'm pretty sure we talked about a million different things and I'm ready to get this girl naked and under me again. I run my hand down her thigh and slip my fingers inside of her shorts.

Brushing my fingers over her clit, I can feel the wetness on her panties. I love that she is always wet and ready for me.

When the server comes by again, I tell him we're ready for our check.

While waiting for the server, I continue to run my fingers up and down her panty covered slit, occasionally dipping my fingers inside them. Her quiet moans tell me how much she wants it and she buries her face into my shoulder when I slip my finger inside of her.

When the server comes back, I pinch her clit and her moan gets louder. His head snaps to her and I can't help but chuckle. I can see the bulge grow in his pants as he figures out what I'm doing to her.

I give him a look and he goes away just as quickly as he arrived, but now with a problem he needs to take care of. Serves him right for staring at my girl.

She turns her face towards me and her eyes are full of lust. I pull my hand from her panties and put my fingers into my mouth sucking her juices off of them. Her breathy moan gets my dick hard.

Pulling out a few twenties from my wallet, I toss them on top of the bill and pull her out of the booth with me. Adjusting myself, I grab her hand and lead her back to my truck. Once we are inside, I make my way to her hotel as fast as I can.

Who says a wild heart can’t be tamed?

For years, I lived for the job and let it control me. Violence was all I knew. I protected, killed, and served. My name is Blake Evans, one of the best undercover cops in the country. I thought I was about to live a quiet life on my ranch in Wyoming until an old friend showed up and changed everything. He brought me her, Hadley Rivers, country music sensation and the one woman I couldn't have. I didn't want her but she had me completely roped in.

My job is to protect her, to keep her away from some psycho who wants her for himself. However, there's more to her story than I was led to believe. I promised to keep her safe and I won't back down . . . even if I have to die trying. I can't let him have her.


Blake was a little ways ahead, but stopped and turned around. “You okay back there, princess?”

I waved him on. “Don’t worry about me!” I shouted. Picking up my pace, I reached down and grabbed a handful of snow. Each step he took, I did double to catch up to him. My fingers were numb from the snow, but I was almost there. Just a few more steps . . .

Blake sidestepped and tackled me out of nowhere, making me scream. His feet slipped and we both fell to the ground, laughing as we rolled around in the snow. He ended up pinning me to the ground, his legs straddling my waist and his body flush with mine. I shivered and it wasn’t because of the snow.

“You should know better than to sneak up on someone like me,” he said. His eyes strayed to my lips.

“I didn’t think you’d hear me,” I whispered breathlessly.

“You’d be surprised what I notice, princess.” He trailed a finger down my cheek to my rapidly beating heart. “Like how your heart is racing right now. I didn’t know I had that effect on you.” I blew out a nervous breath and he smiled, his lips getting closer to mine. “Tell me what you want,” he murmured.

“I can’t.”


“Because once I say the words, I can’t take them back.”

He brought his hands to my face, his thumbs tracing my cheeks. “Maybe this will help.” His lips closed over mine and I melted against him, willingly giving in. I’d never been kissed like that and I didn’t want it to stop. I wanted more. He pushed his tongue inside and I moaned as the heat rose between my legs. Holy hell, I wanted him. Rocking my hips up into him, I dug my nails in his back and he growled, pulling away.

“Fuck, Hadley.”

“What’s wrong?” I asked, breathing hard.

He brushed the hair off my face and kissed me again. “You make me want things I can’t have.”

I nodded. He said exactly what I was thinking. “I know how you feel.”
