Excerpt
Prologue
Alissa
When your whole
world implodes and in the matter of hours and your happily ever after turns to
dust, life sucks.
I’m left holding
the baby. Literally.
The baby being my
eleven-month old daughter, Nora, who knows nothing of her father’s failure to
be a decent husband… man… well human-being really. He’s a shitty person and
that’s all there is to it. Our story started out like your typical fairy-tale.
Goosebumps still prickle my skin when I remember the way he chased me
throughout Senior school, and the years of romance that followed. And the
proposal and wedding? Just call me Cinde-fucking-rella. But my perfect life
came crashing down as quickly as that pink line appeared on the pregnancy test.
Apparently a tired, puffy and hormonal wife didn’t exactly make my husband’s
dick stand to attention. So, in a move I can only imagine was driven by his
little head (and I do mean little,) he decided my ex-best friend was a better
option.
That’s right I said
ex because before she did the dirty with my husband she was the best friend. I
told her everything, confided in her and cried on her shoulder about my
non-existent sex life and all the while her own sex life was heating up with my
husband. Weekends away on ‘business trips’ and doing all the things a wife
should be doing with her husband. Except she was his slutty side piece with a
big fat mouth and a huge spent pussy the whole football team had ridden so
often they called her the local bike.
Yeah, I’m bitter
and I don’t care. I’ve been wronged by the two people I trusted the most. Now
I’m a single mother with no social life to speak of, and my only conversation
is in baby gobbledegook. I actually look forward to the delivery woman ringing
the doorbell when I order groceries online. Yeah, I have them delivered. Have
you ever tried juggling a crying baby and a shopping cart while concentrating
on what comfort food you plan to stuff your face with that night while crying
over chick flicks? Yeah, I’m miserable, it’s obvious, right?
Author Bio
I’m a born and bred East Yorkshire lass. Where I still live
with my husband and our children.

A self-confessed night owl, that’s usually when I do my best work, lucky for me
home-schooling my daughter gives me plenty of time to catch up on those
late-night hours writing, although my irrational love of full sugar coke can
help with that too—don’t tell the sugar police.I wrote my first book when my daughter was born back in 2004, but it stayed on
my laptop for years while I worked out what to do with it. Things were sure
different back then, and to be able to publish a manuscript you’d poured your
soul into seemed a far-off dream, one that I didn’t know would ever come true.

While my first book baby festered on my hard drive, I went on to study a
Creative Writing and English degree, while also growing our family with not
only children but more puppies and dog’s than a sane woman should have.

With a degree under my belt, those original characters, tucked safely far away
from sight, still called to me like old friends. Using my new skills and
knowledge I decided to give them the attention they deserved. Forbidden Love is
the result of those long years of maturing and I couldn’t be prouder of how my
first novel turned out.

What began as one story, fifteen years ago, grew to become a series and in 2016
I took the plunge and dove into the indie publishing world releasing Forbidden
Love to feedback that blew my mind.

And here I still am, loving every minute, bringing characters that hold a place
in my heart to life.

All I can do now, is hope you are here to join me for the ride.

New Release: The Unexpected Letter (The Unexpected Series from Author DL Gallie, Genre: Contemporary Romance Novella is Available Now!

Title: The Unexpected Letter
Series: The Unexpected Series
Author: DL Gallie
Genre: Contemporary Romance Novellas
Release: November 10, 2019
 
Could an unexpected letter change your life?
When it rains, it pours for me.

 

I discover I’m pregnant, with my dead fiancé’s baby, on the same day I’m due to bury him.

 

In my time of despair and need, I turn to Branson, my dead fiancé’s brother, best friend, and business partner. He doesn’t hesitate to offer me unwavering support at this difficult time; it’s the least he can do for his brother and the mother of his niece or nephew.

 

When I begin to develop feelings for him, I put it down to pregnancy hormones, but an unexpected letter changes everything.

 

“It’s time to go.” I stare at him, frozen on the spot. 

My head starts shaking from side to side. “I…I can’t do this,” I whine, “How do I say good bye to my fiancé and ba—” I cut myself off; I don’t want to share this news with anyone just yet. “Branson, please don’t make me do this. Please tell me this is a horrible dream, and I’m going to wake up, and when I walk downstairs I’ll find Kody playing that dumb fucking game on his phone.” I pause, looking up at him with tears pouring down my cheeks. I plead, “Please tell me this isn’t real. Please, Branson. Please.” Falling to my knees, I break down…for the millionth time in the last seven days. My body shudders as grief overtakes me. My sobs and cries mix into a horrendous howl. 

Branson races over to me and wraps his arms around me. “Shhhh, it’s going to me all right, Kase. We will get through this together,” he whispers, running his hand soothingly up and down my back.

“I miss him sooo much, Branson,” I blubber. “And now, I don’t know what to do. I can’t say goodbye because then it all becomes real.”

“Kace, you will get through this. You are the strongest person I know.”

Staring at him through my tears, I sadly smile at him, calling bullshit on what he just said. As I stare at him, I realize I’ll now need him more than ever. Branson is my rock, my crying partner, my everything. Out of everyone, he feels the loss of Kody just as much as I do, but in a different way. He lost his brother, best friend, and business partner. In the last few days, I’ve found myself leaning on him in a way I didn’t think possible. However, with what I’m currently hiding in my pocket, and with his niece or nephew growing in my belly—over the next nine months—I’m going to need him more than I have ever needed anyone before.
 

DL Gallie is from Queensland, Australia, but she’s lived in many different places all over the world, including the UK and Canada. She currently resides in Central Queensland with her husband and two munchkins. She and her husband have been together since she was sixteen, and although they drive each other crazy at times, she couldn’t imagine her life without him. 
 
Shortly after her son was born, DL began reading again. With encouragement from her husband, she picked up the pen and started writing, and now the voices in her head won’t shut up.

Is there anything hotter than a growly, overprotective
Marine cradling a baby? My melted ovaries don’t think so. 
When you work hard and have the bank account to prove it,
you’re entitled to play hard. I’ve seen some crazy things. I’ve caused some
crazy scenes. And there’s no shame in my game.
But I’m still knocked off my stilettos when an insane chain
of events leads to me inheriting a baby. The craziest part? The baby comes with
a by-the-books, no-nonsense retired Marine who’s so regimented that I wouldn’t
be surprised if he irons his boxer shorts. 
Parenting? Bring it on. I don’t need sleep—I once started my
day with business meetings in Cairo and ended it three days later at a club in
Melbourne. Changing diapers? Please. It can’t be any more challenging than
changing out of Spanx on the back of a moving motorcycle. Training the little guy
to run the family’s real estate empire? He’ll be all our bosses by the time
he’s four.
But living with my new co-guardian? The gruff, muscled,
tattooed former military man who manages to check all my boxes while trying to
sneak under my skin?
He needs to go.
Because the longer he stays, the more layers he’s peeling
off my heart.
But love isn’t something that’s ever diluted my gene pool,
and I like my life just fine without it. I have awesome friends, this adorable
baby and an obscene amount of money. Who needs love? 
Turns out…maybe me.
Crazy for Loving You is a larger-than life ride
through accidental parenthood featuring a fun-loving billionaire playgirl, a
crusty Marine with a gooey center, a horny dolphin, the world’s most obscene
pool, and all the fun you’d expect from a world built by Lucy Score, Claire
Kingsley, Kathryn Nolan, and Pippa Grant.

his advances, and he must respect her choice. He has tried to forget her. Yet
he can’t. He aches to possess her.

disappointments and loss.
A domestic

behind the handsome face and, for the first time, her heart is touched by a

breathe.
After a
life directed by prudence, responsibility and duty, Abigail finds herself
tempted to be indiscreet. Just once. And no one would ever know or be hurt. But
she’d best be careful. Her livelihood and that of those she loves depend on her
stern discipline and spotless reputation.
But Abigail
doesn’t realize that the repercussions of her uncharacteristic recklessness
might just prove dangerous in a way she least suspects. Who protects the
protector?

Author: S.L. Sterling
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 22, 2019
Cover Design: Sarah Paige of Opium House Creatives

 

Bah-humbug!
 
This Christmas, all I wanted was to wallow in self-pity until the woman I thought was the love of my life could explain why she left me at the altar. Instead, my buddy, Zach forced holiday merriment on me. I thought it was going to be a tinsel-laced nightmare… until his sister, Alexa, showed up. Turns out, she grew up into a gorgeous present I was insanely tempted to unwrap. Lucky for me, she shared my desire to meet under the metaphorical mistletoe… and let things heat up from there.
 
For the first time in months, Laura, my ex, wasn’t haunting my thoughts like the Ghost of Christmas Past. Which, of course, is exactly why she had to pick that moment to call and say she wanted to talk. I could only hope St. Nick had a playbook in his sleigh because things were about to get complicated.
 
From author S.L. Sterling comes a sizzling holiday romance hot enough to roast your chestnuts!

This course gave her the push she needed to put pen to paper and her debut novel “It Was Always You” was born. 
 
When S.L. Sterling isn’t writing or plotting her next novel she can be found curled up with a cup of coffee, blanket and the newest romance novel from one of her favorite authors on her e-reader.
