Hey! My name is Sarah Brianne and after living for twenty-two years the characters in my head told me enough was enough and I have finally put pen to paper (or is it finger to keyboard?) to tell their stories. Since I was a little girl I have watched every chick flick I could get my hands on, then when I became older I discovered a whole new world of romance novels. To me there is nothing better then a tale of true love and those are the stories that have inspired me to write. Like everything else in my life 
 
I have put my own spin on two lovers destined to be together. 
 
XOXO, 
Sarah Brianne

This is not a love story.

I hate you not for who you are, but what you represent.

Everything you hold dear.

I won’t stop until I break you.

But I’m not going down without a fight.

When I go, I’ll take you with me.

And more connected than you know.

This is not a love story.

Not only is Claire Raye a really sweet pen name, it’s actually
a pen name for two sarcastic best friends who met through their mutual love of
reading. After bonding over books (and wine and cheese), they decided to take
the plunge and see if they could write a book together and ta dah… The
Rockport Beach Novels
 were born! In addition to their shared love of
food and dropping an occasional (read: a lot) of f bombs, the writing duo that
is Claire Raye like to write about strong sassy females who aren’t afraid to
say what’s on their mind and the overprotective men who fall in love with them.
While Claire Raye’s resting bitch face might be strong, she always makes sure
her alpha males are stranger!
Writing The Rockport Beach Novels has been so much fun, even
if Book 2 needed a shared vacation, a stolen bottle of champagne and far too
much vodka and POG to get it back on track! Both halves of Claire Raye are
married and both of her husbands have a cheeky side that gets plenty of airtime
in her books. From their smart mouths to their witty one-liners, there’s plenty
of material to use for all those alpha males she loves to write about.
While Claire Raye isn’t sure she’ll ever reveal who she
really is – there’s just something about your co-workers knowing you write
erotic love scenes that makes having a pen name that much easier – she’s
definitely going to keep on writing. Plans are already underway for the next
series, which is sure to feature plenty of sass, steam and humor. And of
course, a happily-ever-after!

Excerpt
There is no breeze when my stiletto hits the footpath. The air is stale and lifeless. Like me. I slip each foot out of my shoes and hang them from my fingertips. The path is scorching against the flesh of my soles. I’m not sure why I do it—it could be because the path is far too hot for my skin to bear, or it could be because this is a natural act for me, but I run. I run flat out. Running has always alleviated my tension—it’s probably why I started training for this stupid half-marathon in the first place. My handbag slaps at my sides as my feet pound against the tar. Running usually supplies contentment in my life, but right now I feel numb. There is no contentment—no nothing. Maybe if I run far enough away then I won’t have cancer anymore.


 

 

Darting in front of a car, I inhale harshly as I wave my apologies before entering a children’s playground on the opposite corner to the medical centre. Children swing freely. The sound of innocent laughter fills the air. The green grass instantly cushions my boiling feet. I stare at its brilliant colouration when my head drops and my hands grasp my knees.

 

“It’s okay. Breathe,” I tell myself, trying to slow each breath.
Without warning the grass slowly fades to a haunting grey. I flick my head upwards and my body follows suit. The swings bearing the weight of small children suddenly morph into aged tombstones. This once beautiful playground becomes ugly, as I see only an eerie cemetery. I try to escape the sudden changes, and step forward. My lungs seize, causing me to cough hard, and I gasp. I attempt to inhale air, but it’s not entering my body like it should. A stampeding herd pummels my chest, buckling my torso over, folding me in half once more.
“Breathe, May,” I whisper, right before my legs give way. I fall heavily upon my knees as salty tears flow steadily from my disbelieving eyes. Finally, I draw a needy mouthful of air only to release it again in an injured howl.
Please don’t take my life.

Excerpt
She pulls
her feet away, tucking them beneath her, and props an arm on the back of the
couch. After brushing a wayward curl from my forehead, she meets my eyes again.
“What is going on in your head tonight? Talk to me, Tris.”
“I’m
trying.”
“Start with
telling me why you made me promise not to date without talking to you first.”
Reaching
forward, I caress her cheek, and she leans into my touch. “Date me next.”
I use the
tone she calls the commanding one, and her eyes dilate. Fuck . . . it really
does turn her on. How did I never notice that?
“Tristan,
that’s a really bad idea.”
“Why?”
“Why? For
starters, you’re my best friend.”
“Exactly.”
I weave my fingers into her hair, and she moves closer to me. “If it doesn’t
work, we’ll be fine, I promise. I won’t let this get in the way of our
friendship.”
“You say
that now but—”
I bring my
finger to her lips to silence her. “No buts; we’ve been through so much
already. We can handle seven dates.”
“You’re
assuming you’ll make it to the seventh date.” As I smile, she gasps. “That’s
why you made me promise.”
I’m about
to lay all my cards on the table. “Yes. Bexley, I want my chance to win your
heart.”
Her eyes
close for a long moment, but my hand is still at the base of her neck, my
fingers entwined in her curls. “I’m scared, Tris. What if you do something
that’s a deal breaker?”
“That’s
always a possibility, but if I do it in the first six dates, you have to let it
go. If I do it on the seventh, well, that’s a risk I’m willing to take, I
suppose. Either way, nothing is going to come between us. Nothing.”
The air
snaps between us. This has become a defining moment in our relationship, but
it’s one I think, deep down, we both knew was inevitable.
“Would
tonight count as our first date?” She still hasn’t opened her eyes.
“That
depends. Do you kiss on your first dates?”
Her eyes
finally snap open, and I’m met with a lust-filled gaze. Damn, I’ve never seen
this look on her, but now I don’t ever want to see her without it. “Sometimes,
I do.”
“Well, if
you want a kiss good night, then we can count this as our first date.
Otherwise, tomorrow can be our first date.”
The rise
and fall of her chest becomes noticeable as her breathing intensifies. She
squirms, and I realize she’s turned on. Part of me wants her to say no, this
isn’t our first date, because I’d love for it to be special to her. But another
part of me wants to take her mouth with mine and kiss her until morning.
“Are you a
good kisser?” she whispers, inching even closer to me. Bexley watches intently
as I lick my lips ever so slightly, moistening what I want to give her.
“I’ve never
had any complaints, but there’s always a first time for everything.” I cup the
back of her neck and pull her closer to me—so close, she’s only a whisper from
my lips. “It’s your call. What do you want to do?”
She moves
forward and presses her lips tentatively against mine. In the course of every
relationship, there is a make-or-break moment, and this one is ours—I feel it
to my core as her apricot scent envelops me. I’m a lost cause.
“First date
it is,” I whisper against them before wrapping my free arm around her waist and
pulling her even closer.

Sorceress, enchantress, deceiver, murderer—I’ve been called all those
and more, some that might make you blush. Lucky for me, I couldn’t care less
what people think about me. I’ve had my sights set on one thing for the last
thousand years, and that’s all that matters. I’ll do whatever it takes to find
the cauldron, even if it means taking on a partner. They call him a knight in
shining armor. For me, he’s my golden ticket. He fell into my lap, quite
literally, and now he’s going to help me get what I want.
I don’t play particularly well with others, but he’s the best shot I’ve
got, so I’ll hop on that train and hope it gets me where I need to go. He
thinks he’s going to crack my shell and see what’s on the inside, like maybe
there’s a warm gooey center to make up for the hard exterior. He’s in for a
world of disappointment. Everything soft and delicate about me became rough and
hardened a long time ago. I’m Morgan Le Fay, and I’m the villain in this story.

Excerpt
“Don’t be absurd.
I’m not having sex in Magda’s house, and I told you it wasn’t happening again,
anyway. I only agreed to fuel your magic that one time, nothing more.” My smile
died as the words came out, and Knight’s playful manner charged to something
visceral.
The air in the room
thickened, and my heartbeat hammered in my throat. Knight’s lips lifted
seductively as he placed the pad of his thumb against the pulse point on my
neck.
“That’s not what
this says. The thrumming of your heart tells me just the suggestion of having
me inside you excites you. You want me as much as I want you. Lucky for you, I
had no plans of ravaging you tonight. The noises you’ll make when I’m inside
you would terrify poor Magda.”
I took in a
steadying breath through my nose, trying not to broadcast how profoundly
Knight’s words had affected me.
“I don’t think we
need to fear her, but I also don’t think she’s so meek as she would have us
believe. She knew about you, that you had suffered. I have no doubt she knew
plenty about me as well.”
His features
hardened, jaw muscles contracting. “Even more reason to be on our guard. Now,
get ready for bed—the sooner this is over, the sooner I can fuck you properly.”
He spun me around and placed a sharp swat on my rear.
I yipped in surprise
and glowered at him, which only spurred him on. We washed up, and while I
stayed in my clothes, Knight stripped to his underwear. Had he been any other
man, I would have openly gawked without any problem. Considering our unique
situation, I didn’t want to give him any ammunition to use against me. He
already knew he affected me, the last thing I needed was for him to catch me
openly ogling him.
Same as the night
before, as soon as I crawled into bed, Knight yanked me against him. I glared
back at him with as much annoyance as I could muster.
“You know, not
everyone likes to sleep all smashed together.”
“Whatever,” he
murmured into my hair. “You slept so soundly in my arms last night, your
snoring could have woken the dead. It was a miracle we survived at all.”
I elbowed him in the
gut with indignation. “I do not snore, you giant flea bag.”
Knight burst out
laughing and pulled me in even tighter. His soft chuckle close to my ear made
my skin prickle with awareness. I attempted to remain stiff and surly, but
Knight had a way of withering away my resolve. With his thumb lazily stroking
back and forth across my belly, he whispered to me softly.
“Not only do you not
snore, you’re even more beautiful when you sleep. I hadn’t thought it was
possible, but when you are drifting at peace, you look like an angel.”
For so long, I had
accepted my reputation and played my part well. I fed into the rumors, and
people saw me as a heartless bitch, treating me as such.
To some extent, I’d
begun to believe it was true.
Until I’d met
Knight.
He made me remember
the person I used to be. Even more confusing, he made me wonder if I wanted to
be her again. He made me think and feel a lot of things—all of them complex and
terrifying. I wasn’t sure what to do with any of it. I certainly wasn’t ready
to share those feelings—nor the tear that slipped from my eye at his words.
