Heather In The Mist by Madelyn Hill

Title: Heather in the Mist
Author: Madelyn Hill
Genre: Historical Romance

What her father doesn’t know is Lady Rogan has plans of her own—plans to 
keep her from a loveless marriage. Can she save the clan before she has to say “I do?” 

Ian Albright abolished all ties to Scotland after his family betrayed him and he is now nursing a wounded ego due to an unfaithful fiancĂ©e. He pledges never to return to his home until the fateful day he accepts an invitation to his dear cousin’s wedding. The minute he sees his cousin’s betrothed, his heart is captured. If only she didn’t belong to another . . . 

Lady Rogan and Ian have known each other since they were young and bent on vexing each other. Now, the only thing they find vexing is the fact Rogan is betrothed to another. Together they fight their growing attraction while investigating the forces bedeviling the clan. Yet at every turn their foe appears and wreaks havoc. When tragedy strikes, their hopes are dashed again. 

Can Lady Rogan and Ian’s love win when fate seems determined to keep them apart? 

While William was busy unloading the carriage with Duncan, Ian turned to watch the dark-haired beauty stride across the keep’s yard. He appreciated the sway of her rounded hips and the determination in her step. 
She was a feisty one. The flare of her nostrils and roiling fury in her green eyes had told him as much. 
The rest of her face was equally intriguing. High cheekbones, a feminine nose, and brows like the feathers of a raven winged in flight. 
Rogan Cameron had blossomed into a beauty, despite the smudge of flour on her nose.
Did she actually think he did not recognize her? Yes, it had been nearly ten years since he’d seen her, and she had grown. But she still held the mark of a Cameron and her father’s unusual eyes, so pale and green, it was hard to describe their brilliance. He saw the flash of temper in them when he dismissed her. Obviously the fiery temperament of her youth followed her into womanhood.
Noticing uncomfortable warmth, he rubbed his hand. A flash of worry filled his mind. She’d been a meddlesome lass when she was young, but now, a breathtaking beauty that he’d do well to keep in mind was William’s betrothed. 
But dear God, when he’d seen her walking toward him, it took all of his strength not to rush to her, brush the flour from her nose, and drink in her loveliness. Her beauty had stolen his breath away. The only way to stop the urge was to pretend he didn’t know her, pretend she didn’t affect him. 
Shaking his head to clear his mind of the lass’ bewitching image, Ian turned his attention back to his favored cousin.
The one Rogan Cameron was to wed.

Madelyn Hill has always loved the written word. From the time she could read and all through her school years, she'd sneak books into her textbooks during school. And she devoured books daily. At the age of 10 she proclaimed she wanted to be a writer. After being a "closet" writer for several years, she sent her manuscripts out there and is now published with Soul Mate Publishing. And she couldn't be happier! 

A resident of Western New York, she moved from one Rochester to another Rochester to be with the love of her life. They now have 3 children and keep busy cooking, watching their children's sporting events, and of course reading!

Woodland Creek Series. 
30 Authors. 
30 Shifter Stories. 

Anastasiya Petrov ran from her fate. The youngest of seven sisters and promised to one of the Princes of a rival pack, she refuses to be a bargaining chip. Instead, she flees to a remote area in the United States, changes her name to Tasia Connor, and settles into her new life.

Alex Chilikov might be an Estonian prince, but he was raised in the United States and loves it here, especially Woodland Creek, Indiana, where he’s followed close behind his bride-to-be. She might be able to hide who she is from the others, but he’d recognize her scent anywhere, and he plans to use his trickster abilities to help him obtain what he wants. He wants out from under his own father’s heavy thumb.

However, he’s not the only one searching for her. Her father has made some dangerous enemies, and though she continues to attempt to escape Alex’s protection, he’ll fight to keep her safe. Tasia will risk almost anything to keep her freedom, but only if she can resist a Wicked Jackal.

Meet the Author


   It all started with an old-fashioned typewriter. When the family brought it home, all those stories and characters rolling around in her head could finally get out. The press and click of the keys satisfied in their own right, but when she pulled out a finished page, she knew this was for her. Since then, she’s graduated to a laptop, but the stories still find a way out.
She’s a breast cancer survivor, a teacher, a wife, a mother, and from the very beginning–a storyteller. Always a hint humorous and honest to a fault, she loves to make people laugh and smile. Her goal in life is to achieve tact and stop procrastinating. The battle wages on.

You're Not Alone by Stacy Eaton

Trinity Morris, co-founder of You’re Not Alone, has a domestic violence past that still haunts her ten years later. She is devoted to helping victims find freedom and to sharing information on how to help them through their emotional and violent trials. While Trinity is presenting at a seminar, she comes across Gavin, a police officer who knows her past all too well.

It’s been ten years since he last saw her, but the moment Gavin’s eyes land on her, he’s intent on getting to know the woman who has haunted his dreams all these years.

Can Gavin break through the wall that Trinity has built around herself, or will the present and the past collide and take her away from him again?


Romantic Suspense
Content Warning: deals with domestic violence and partner abuse

PUBLISHED: November 10, 2015

I was usually a bit uneasy before I spoke, and now my empty stomach seemed to be roiling after that memory had passed through my mind.

I glanced around the hallway, intent on finding a peaceful place where I could gather my thoughts. I saw the door down the hallway and quickly entered the women’s restroom.

Inside, I found exactly what I needed, and I sank into a deep burgundy chair in the sitting area. Closing my eyes, I took a few deep breaths.

On the back of my eyelids the memory flashed again, only this time it was with the pulsing flash of amber ambulance lights around me. The strong solid chin, the thin pointed nose, the soft green eyes set back behind thick eyelashes blinked with the lights of the emergency vehicle. He wasn’t looking at me as my eyes opened, he had turned so I only saw his profile for a moment before it was replaced with other people and darkness sank in around me again.

I felt my pulse ticking quickly in my throat, the pain from that moment so long ago almost as alive as the memory. I lifted my hand and allowed my fingers to slide over my throat. I took a shaky breath to shove away the pain.

That was ten years ago and far away from here. There was no way that could be him.

“Anytime you want to climb on that pole again, Kai, I’m game.” Joel grinned. Wiping that smile off his face seemed near impossible. He’d been teasing me about it since the moment I climbed on top of the bar and danced. 
“You’re never going to let me live it down, are you?” I actually didn’t mind, not that I’d tell Joel. My cheeks burned remembering that night. 
Although I was just doing my job, I knew how turned on it made him. If it weren’t for the fact we were in a bar on duty, I’d have given him a lap dance. Joel’s tongue would have probably hung out of his mouth. Being an FBI Agent was tough work, most of the time. The few moments where I could have some fun and let loose, why shouldn’t I? 
Joel’s lips trailed a soft path of kisses across my jaw. I curled beneath the sheets of his mattress. “Joel, we can’t.” Though I wanted to, I wasn’t quite comfortable with it. The reason had nothing to do with him being my boss. We were over that. “Your kids are in the next room and the walls are thin.” 
“They’re asleep.” 
I laughed. “Yeah, for now. You’re loud. There is no way it won’t wake them up. The neighbors at my place give me slack when I run into them getting the mail.” 
Joel whined and reached for my hip, pulling me against him. “Then why did you insist on sneaking over? You’re such a tease.” 
“I am not!” I playfully shoved his chest. I tried my best to keep my voice down to a minimum. It’s not that I didn’t like his kids, I just thought it was too early for us to be doing weekends together. Which is why I opted to sneak over after they were in bed. I didn’t think ahead to the fact that we’d have to keep our voices down and that Joel was a loud moaner during sex. Not that I was particularly quiet, but he had the tendency to make sure everyone could hear us. 
“Want to play a game?” he asked. His thumb stroked my hip, inching my shirt as the pads of his fingers grazed bare skin. 
“Like Monopoly?” I wasn’t in the mood for board games. 
Joel leaned his head forward, chuckling softly. He reached for me, brushing his lips against mine. I dragged my fingers into his dark, thick hair. “I had something more adult in mind.” 
“Oh?” My hands paused their ministrations, trying to image what Joel would have thought up. He struck me more as a strip poker kind of guy, but we were already half-naked. Where was the fun in that? Joel climbed out of bed and headed for his closet. I whimpered in protest. “Where are you going? 
I’m right here.” 
“I know a game that will be fun for both of us.” He brought one of his work ties out from the closet. 
“If you’re planning on tying me to the bed, you know we have handcuffs for that.” 
“No need. Unless of course you’re naughty. Close your eyes,” he said, and I did so, feeling the tie cover my eyes as he secured it at the back of my head. I was blindfolded. This was new for us. 
My heart skipped a beat. I trusted Joel, but it still made me nervous. “What do you plan on doing?” I asked. 
“Kai, you complained that I’m loud when we have sex. I’m going to make sure that you’re the one making all the noises. Better keep your voice down, I’m not sure I locked the bedroom door."

“Come with me.” Vincent’s tone is sharp and short. “You broke the rules, Helene. There are consequences for not following orders.” He grabs me by the elbow and whisks me into a nearby room, kicking the door shut behind us. 
I slip from his grasp as he blocks my exit. Consequences? Is he out of his mind? I should have known not to trust him and come to court. Not that I felt there was much choice but I could have lied to the king or told him I had a husband to stay with. It might have begged more questions but those I could have skirted. “Let me go!” 
“Not until you’ve been taken over my knee.” 
I scoff at his words. He’s not serious. “What are you going to do, spank me?” I’m half-joking. Rowland wasn’t a prince but he never would have had the strength to discipline me.

I’m broken. Damaged goods. I was violated in the vilest way possible and I’ll never be the same. He’ll never claim me now. Why would he even still want me? Why would anyone? I don’t have what he wants anymore. I’m not even the same girl he met. He’ll leave me just like everyone else in my life. I don’t want him to go. He’s all I have. 

I should have protected her and I didn’t. Everything that happened is my fault and if she wants nothing to do with me I wouldn’t blame her. I know I should have stayed away from her but I was selfish. I still am. I’ll move Heaven, Hell, and everything in between in order to make things right. I don’t want to lose her. I can’t. She’s mine.

He leans over me and claims my lips, kissing me the way he did before all this shit happened. It’s not the gentle, careful kiss of the past few months but a hungry, passionate mouth-fuck I’d come to love from him. I glide my fingers through his hair, moaning as his hard dick connects with my pussy. He groans and leaves my lips, kissing his way across my cheek and down my neck, stopping at my breasts. Pulling my hardened nipple into his mouth, he sucks while his thumb and index finger torment the other.
“Perfect,” he whispers.
My back arches and he cups both breasts as his lips move down my stomach. I squirm beneath him, desperate to finally feel him inside me.
“Waited so long for this, babe.”
“Then why are you stalling?” I demand impatiently.
His lips stretch into a smile against my skin. “Not stalling, doll. Savoring.”
Fuck. Me.
He spreads my legs and kneels between them, sliding his tongue over his lips. Baby Jesus, he’s going to lick me. I prop myself up on my elbows and watch as he stares at me like I’m a juicy steak.
“You’re going to come on my tongue, and then I want to feel that tight pussy clenching on my dick.”
He lowers his head and I fall back on the mattress as his tongue glides between my lips.
Fucking hell! What manner of torture is this? His tongue swirls all over my pussy and he lets out a satisfied moan. 
“Sweet…so sweet.” Once again, I feel his lips stretch in a smile. “No monkey bread can compare.”

Music and writing are my two great loves. I always thought I'd be doing one or the other. Alas, I cannot sing or play an instrument so I'm relegated to listening to music (and eating copious amounts of chocolate) while I write. Hoping you'll enjoy my characters as much as I do!
