Excerpt
Prologue
Unknown
I wish I
could say this was only ever about you, Margo. But it wasn’t.
There were
so many other moving pieces. You, Caleb, your families. I sometimes want to
laugh at the complexity of the situation I found myself in. How could I have
known the hornet’s nest I was walking into? The agony you brought on
Caleb’s family?
The luck of
the draw.
A single
spark of luck put us together.
You and me,
for all eternity.
We’re bound
together. And now that I have you…
Pain is
inevitable.
And so is
your downfall.

Two months have passed since the day I pushed Hayden away.
Two months since I found out he loved me and wanted to be with me. I’ve been
trying to move on and forget about him, but my heart refuses to listen.
Hayden had almost died saving me. Half of me wants to
forgive him for everything and give him another chance. The other half prevents
me from doing so, distrusting him and ignoring my heart’s desires. Hayden is
dark and complicated, and as the days pass, he gets further away from me,
ignoring me whenever our paths cross.
I have less than a year before I go to college, and I won’t
see him ever again. I have to believe I will get over him and move on with my
life. I have to believe in my future without him. 
Unless he didn’t really move on, and our masks are about to
fall.

Excerpt
“He smirked,
his eyes heating. “Our rooms are very similar.”
That was true. Not
only our walls were covered with the layers of our souls, but my room was also
messy, so many papers, sticky notes, and art supplies lying all around. I
wouldn’t change a single thing about it.
“You’re right.”
“That was why I
felt…” He stopped mid-sentence, taking another drag of his cigarette.
My body leaned
closer to him on its own. The mood between us shifted once more. “What?”
He locked his jaw
and looked away. “It doesn’t matter.”
“It matters to me,”
I whispered. Without conscious thought, I moved and covered his hand that
rested on the mattress.
He flinched and
looked at my hand, frowning. I feared he would pull his hand away, but he
didn’t. “Why?”
My pulse beat madly
in my throat. “Because… Because you matter to me.” I tightened my grip around
his hand, feeling exposed. My eyes went to his scar, and I wished I could touch
it, definitely not for the first time. “I want to know everything about you.”
His breathing sped
up. “Everything?”
“Everything.”
He sucked in a quick
breath, taking in every line of my face with undiluted hunger. He balanced his
cigarette on the edge of the ashtray and met my gaze.
“I felt at peace
there,” he said hoarsely. “I felt like…”
I leaned even closer
to him. “Yes?”
He swallowed. “Like
I belonged there.”

Release Boost! “Stolen Soulmate” by Author Mary Catherine Gebhard, Genre: New Adult Bully Romance is Available NOW!

Title: Stolen Soulmate
Author: Mary Catherine Gebhard
Genre: New Adult Bully Romance
Release Date: February 27, 2020
Blurb
There’s a rule in Crowne Hall: never look a Crowne in the
eyes.
It protects us more than them.
I broke it once, the night Grayson Crowne mistook me for his
true love and stole my first kiss. I’ve regretted it every day since.
He hates me.
He torments me.
He won’t let me go, because that night he whispered a secret
against my lips not meant for me. Grayson Crowne, heir to the Crowne empire and
notorious playboy prince is… a virgin.
I signed a contract in my heart’s blood as much as ink: help
him get back his love, repair what I broke. Give him my body, my soul, my
heart, let him use all of me, so when the time comes to marry her, he won’t
need me.
I shouldn’t need him.
But he’s my stolen soulmate, and I’m at his mercy.

Excerpt
The ink was barely
dry on the pages. I don’t know if I was ready for this. Somehow I felt like I
was more of a virgin than Grayson. Nervous, skittish. He’d warned me when all of
this began that the things he’d seen and done would wreck me.
I should’ve believed
him then.
When I didn’t do
anything for a minute, he arched a brow.
Do whatever he
says.
I could use my safe
word, but a twisted part of me liked doing what he told me to
do. Liked the rush and the way his eyes hardened. It felt like power, power
over one of the most powerful people in the world.
I’d barely taken a
step to him, when he ripped me to him by the small of my waist. His other hand
tangled in my hair, yanking my head to the side.
“Fuck,” he said,
lips at my neck. “Which part do I eat first.”
Delicious tingles
spread along my skin at his words. His nose ran along my neck, goosebumps
following in his wake. His hands slid from hair, from my waist, along my body,
feeling every inch of me, like he couldn’t do it fast enough, before settling
back in my hair.
Deliriously, I found
the zipper of my dress, but his overtook mine. Stopping me.
“I’m going to ruin
your white dress, Snitch. Ruin you. Until you’re all fucked up from me.”

Blurb

 

She was my best friend. The person I told my deepest secrets
to. But when my world came crashing down, it was all because of her family.
From that moment, I realized I’d been wrong to trust her. Her big caring eyes
and sweet face were nothing but an act as she’d watched on while I tried to
keep my head above water.

That was our past.

Now, I’ve largely put Camila behind me and moved on with my life. Though it
doesn’t explain why she’s always there: taunting me, tempting me, showing me
the life I could have been living.

I should have been laughing when her own world turned upside down. Karma always
wins out in the end. But suddenly we’re forced together once again and I have
no choice but to remember the girl I’ve tried so hard to forget.

Excerpt
I carry the plate upstairs and check over my shoulder before I open the
door.
What I find makes me sorry I had any consideration for the asshole
sitting at my desk.
He’s holding my freaking
vibrator!
“Look what I found.” He smirks, holding it up between his thumb and
forefinger and waggling it back and forth.
“You asshole. Put that away,” I
grit out between clenched teeth, dropping the plate of mac ‘n cheese onto the
bedside table.
Damn him. Where does he get off?
“Does Tyler know about this?” He keeps waving it.
I stalk over and try to grab it, but he’s too quick, moving it to the
side, then up high.
“Does he use it on you, Legs?”
My pussy clenches, even as flames fly out of my ears. I lunge for the
vibe, not caring that I plunked my knee right on his thigh to reach up high and
grab it.
The perv clamps an arm around the backs of my thighs, his forearm lifting
my ass like he’s trying to help.
It has the extremely unfortunate effect of getting me horny as hell. Or
maybe that’s the sight of my B.O.B.
I don’t back down, though. If he wants to get up close and personal, I’ll
go all the way in. I shove my tits in his face and pry the vibrator out of his
fingers. I’m pretty sure he only let me because I caught him off guard. The
second I have it, I slam it down on the top of his head.
And then I scramble back.
Oops.
I didn’t mean to hit him.
That hard.
Or maybe at all.
We both stare at each other in shock. I’m slightly horrified at my own
violence–I’ve never hit anyone in my life.
He looks just as surprised to find I’m capable of it. Or maybe he’s
really hurt.
“Ouch,” he confirms.
“I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have hit you with–”
“No you shouldn’t have.” In a flash, he’s up off the chair, divesting me
of the vibrator. He tackles me to the bed. “You’re in big trouble now, Legs.”
Somehow, that sounds more sexy than threatening.
And my body responds with a full on pleasure rush. Heat floods my lady
parts. Peaks my nipples.
Somewhere near my right ear, my vibrator roars to life.

Drew
I hate
the lies you tell.
For as long
as I can remember, everything in my world has been fake. The happy nuclear
family. The loving parents. The close father-son relationship. The respectable
family business. All lies. I’ve had it with the pretense and the show, but I’m
been trapped on a dizzying merry-go-round of deception, and I can’t get off.
So when
she’s thrown unexpectedly into my path, and I discover she’s just another fake,
I need to make her pay. Little do I know, the deceit runs deeper than I
imagined, and nothing is as it seems.
Kik
I tell
the lies I hate.
I hate the
lies and the pretense, but if I ‘m going to achieve what I want in life,
they’re a necessary evil. Truth is, I’ve mostly made peace with the idea. What
I’m doing is a means to an end, and the end definitely justifies the means.
Besides, it’s not forever—nothing ever is.
Everybody
has to do what they have to do, right? I can live with that. Kinda. Sorta.
Maybe. At least I can until he comes bursting into my life, and is determined
to tear down everything I’ve worked so hard to build.

Trailer
Excerpt
When Drew emerged from the shower my breath hitched at the
sight of him. Even beaten, battered and bruised, he was beautiful. His hair was
still wet, slicked back away from his face, revealing the deep gash above his
eyebrow in all its glory. He was going to have a scar there whether he had
stitches or not, but I figured it would be worse if he let it heal without
getting it seen to. Stupidly, I couldn’t help but think that the scar would
probably suit him.
The fact was, the whole beat-up vibe was really doing it for
me. Not only that, but it totally suited what I knew of his personality. For
someone with a mean, controlling streak as wide as his, the beefcake, preppy
look he normally rocked was kind of false advertising. The world should
probably be forewarned that below the cool, calm and buttoned-down exterior, a
wild animal lurked just below the surface.
Case in point, if the sorry state of his knuckles—bloodied
and bloated—was anything to go by, however badly off he was, the other person
went away looking at least as bad, if not worse. They definitely weren’t
defensive wounds.
I tried not look below the waistband of his gray sweats as
he headed toward me, but it was like trying not to lick my lips while eating a
sugar donut—the more I told myself not to, the more I was compelled to do
exactly that. Not wanting to overtly leer at him, I quickly skirted past the
obvious, and brought my eyeline down to his bare feet as he crossed the room.
Big mistake. Big. Huge.
There was something so intimate about him padding about like
that, it had me freaked me out. What the fuck was I doing cozying up and
playing nursemaid to a guy I hated for twenty-three and a half hours a day, but
who knew exactly how to make me love him for the other thirty minutes?
