SPARKLING DAWN...Is Chloe hiding the truth



"I’m sure you have better things to do-do than join me to tend my garden. And, my garden isn’t extensive.” Even as the retort tumbled out of Chloe's lips, her cheeks took
on a light pink colour.

Warren shook his head, amazed at how discomfited she appeared.

“I’m seeing a stuttering side to you.” His lips wobbled with laughter. “Believe it or not, I find your blushing and stuttering appealing.” Both signs gave him confidence he was right to have come in search of her.

After their dinner date ended belly up, he was left aching and seeking answers.
“I’ve casual clothes in the car that would do just fine. I’ll just go and grab them, and be right back.”

   Not waiting for acceptance, he leapt up and strode towards the door. Before he put one foot out, he turned back and added, “There’s nowhere else I’d rather be at this moment.” Warren stepped out before she could say anything.

His brazen smile left her gaping at his retreating back.

   Unable to understand what she just heard, she raced to her window and threw her gold curtains aside. Fair enough, she saw him strolling to his car parked in her driveway. While she drank in the sight of his butt, Warren’s head looked up just before he turned the lock in his car.

   The curtain circling her neck almost choked her. She coughed, her hands stuck to the curtain. And as Chloe watched, a big smile spread across his wide mouth.

                                                                 ******

The Life by +Bethany-Kris Bragdon 

Sequel to The Arrangement The Russian Guns, Book Two 

Add to Goodreads TBR

Release Date: August 4th, 2014 






The mafia life is a dangerous one revolving around honor, duty, and greed—a troublesome thing like love isn’t meant to play a part, but no one follows the rules. 

Surrounded by men waiting for the Russian mob boss to show weakness, Anton Avdonin should have known showering affection so openly on his new bride wasn’t a good idea. Of course, that didn’t stop him. When Anton’s wife begins attracting unwanted attention from an unknown source, he’s determined to find out just who is playing the risky game and put a stop to it by whatever means necessary. 


From a Cosa Nostra princess to a Bratva queen, Viviana “Vine” Avdonin was made for the life. Pregnant, safe, and loved, she’s more than happy to move on from the history that haunts her to start out fresh. Then again, someone else has other plans. Old rivals from the past and bad blood from the present have mixed in the worst way, threatening to take away the things Viviana loves the very most. No matter what, she can’t let that happen. 

Both Viviana and Anton know there’s only one way this can all end and it’s up to them to do it. But, who is behind the veiled threats and personal attacks, and how far are they willing to go to get what they want? When the truth finally surfaces, the consequences will be devastating and no one could have seen it coming. 

In a life where everybody plays for keeps and no one fights fair, one mistake might cost them everything. 

*Please Note, The Life is not a standalone title. The first book in The Russian Guns series (The Arrangement) should be read before the second book*

Anton
rested back to the headboard to catch his breath and brought his wife closer to
his side with one arm. Not bothering to make any attempt to leave his sweaty
grasp, Viviana laid a soft kiss to his arm as his hand rubbed up her naked
side.

After
falling into bed around three in the morning once Erik and Ivan were gone,
Anton was woken up by his wife not a couple of hours later. It wasn’t like her
to be up so early, never mind wanting to fuck like they had, given the new
pressure and pain she’d been experiencing in the mornings. Anton had no idea
what came over Viviana, but he sure as hell wasn’t about to complain.

Their
coupling had been rough—rougher than he liked given her stage of pregnancy. But
even when he tried to slow them down, to take her softer, Viviana wouldn’t have
it. Anton wasn’t one to deny his wife, especially not of that.

“Jesus
Christ,” he mumbled into the palm of his hand. Even though his body was still
humming from her high, his mind was downright exhausted. Three hours of sleep wasn’t
new to Anton, but he could use a bit more. “Thanks for the wake-up call, baby.”

Viviana
giggled, but even the sound felt off. “Yeah, I guess.”

“Hey,”
he said into her hair. The grip he had on her tightened momentarily. “What’s
wrong?”

“Hmm?”
Viviana turned just enough to lean up and press her silken mouth to the
underside of his jaw. “Nothing, just thinking about Sergei.”

“Don’t
fret over that idiot. He’s not even a blip on my radar. We’ll get that dinner
done and move on.”

Anton
was lying through his teeth, but concerning his wife just wasn’t okay with him.
What he wanted her doing was focusing on the end of her pregnancy, their son,
and her health. He was the boss, so he’d handle the Bratva issues. There was no
way she was going to be brought into the crossfire of Sergei’s nonsense, so he
didn’t think she had any need to be properly informed.

“Actually,”
he said, thinking about his conversation the night before with his spies. “I
think you might just show, and then go. You haven’t been feeling terribly great
lately, so it’s not a stretch to think you might not feel well that day. Just
stay long enough to say hello, forgive Tatiana if you want, and then Rory will
escort you home and Joe will follow. Business as usual.”

“Forgive
her if I want,” she repeated dully.

“It’d
be better if you did, or at least say you do, but it’s not expected. You did
ask for her, though, so you have to be respectful about whatever you choose to
do.”

Viviana
snorted. “When am I ever not? Can I claw her eyes out after?”

“No,”
Anton said, laughing. That’d surely be a sight. He bet Viviana would give
Tatiana one hell of a run for her money. “Not while you’re pregnant with my
child, anyhow.”

“Yeah,
but making her swallow a few teeth would sure make me feel a heck of a lot
better.”

“My
God. You know there’s nothing there, right? Her and me, I mean. That’s not …
It’s just not there, baby. You don’t have to be jealous.”

“I’m
not jealous, Anton.” Strangely, he believed her. Viviana shrugged under the
weight of his arm resting around her shoulders. “Why should I be … of Tatiana?
I have exactly what she doesn’t. Everything she thought should have been hers
is mine. I have your life, your son, and your love. Even if she was nothing
more than your whore, which she isn’t, she still wouldn’t have any of those
things. So no, I’m not jealous of that girl. On the other hand, I do wonder if
she is envious of me.”


“I
have no doubt of that.”

Viviana
sighed. “Exactly. Tatiana has defied her father, you, and God knows how many
others just to hurt me once. That was before we were married, before Demyan,
and she only managed to sling words. This time might be different. At this
dinner, she’s going to see me pregnant, happy, and protected, all because of
you. Again, all that she doesn’t have and everything she wanted. So it brings
me back to safety, I guess. You made it clear you don’t want her in any way so
would she hurt me, or worse your baby, because of her resentment? Is she that
crazy over you?”

Anton
stayed silent, letting his wife’s words sink in as he considered them. It
wasn’t that what she said didn’t make sense, because it did, but he wondered
why Viviana had asked for Tatiana’s presence at all.

“You
asked for her to be there, Vine. If you were worried about all of this, why ask
at all?”

“I
also asked for no guns.”

“And
I’ll make sure that’s adhered to as best I can,” Anton said, still feeling
confused. “You won’t take a step into any establishment unless it is weapon
free.”

Viviana
felt tense in his arms. “You don’t need a gun to kill someone.”

“She
won’t have any chance to be alone with you.”

“I
know.”

“Then
what?” Anton asked.

“I
want this done,” she said so low he strained to hear. “Put an end to it,
however you have to. I don’t want to worry about her or her goddamned family
after it’s over. I don’t want to think if she can’t hurt me, she’ll go to the
next best thing.”

“You’re
worried she’ll try to hurt Demyan.”

“Or
you. To me, that’s just as bad.”

“You
know that’d never—”

“No,
I don’t,” Viviana interrupted coolly. “But if I didn’t have them to worry
about, it’d be one less thing for me to consider.”

It
was only then that her hidden meanings were starting to dawn on Anton. Viviana
never asked him for anything in regards to business. She didn’t like to have
her hands in his pots, so to speak. This was entirely different, especially if
she was asking what he thought she was asking.

“Come
on, Vine …”

“I
want it done,” she repeated thickly. “Please.”


“On
your head, though? You want that on your mind, bloodying up your hands, too?”

“Please?”

“Stop
it,” Anton said, practically spitting the words. “Fuck, just don’t say that
shit. I’ll handle it.”



“Before
or after one of us is dead?”

Didn't Our Kiss Mean Anything? #MidWeekTease7 #Romance

What a lovely Wednesday! Welcome to Midweek Tease hosted by Sandra Bunino.

Every mid week, writers tease readers by sharing work from their published work or work-in-progress.


I'm going to share a bit more of Chloe and Warren's story from Sparkling Dawn - A Flirty & Feisty Romance.

Last week,
feisty Chloe got busted catching a glimpse of Warren's back side when he appeared unexpectedly on her door step.

In this scene, charming Warren is putting his best foot forward asking Chloe to be his girlfriend. And hot-headed Chloe has a few things to say to him.


Enjoy the Teaser!

SPARKLING DAWN...Is Chloe hiding the truth

 One part of Chloe's brain tried to remind her Warren was the wrong choice to flirt with for known reasons, but her tingly body shoved the idea into the trash can.
 
“Where do I clean up, Chloe?”

   “This way,” she replied, leading him down the hallway into the guest bathroom.

After opening the bathroom door, she stood back to let him in.
“Don’t take too long. Food waits for no man.”

Moving forward, he blocked her exit, his eyes pinned hers. “You baffle me. Way back in Hatfield, I would have described you as a passive girl. Now, you blush without a break. And our foray at Claridges opened my eyes to the possibility of us getting together. What happened in the garden is still playing on my mind and then, you turn on the teasing tap.”

   “Go in Warren. You make me edgy when you gape at me like that,” she accused in an austere voice.

   “And you amaze me, Chloe. Why are you nervous?” he asked, placing his left hand on the door frame above her head.

   Her heart thumped and she licked her top lip. The sight of her pink tongue flicking out unexpectedly revived his simmering lust.

   Sucking in his breath, his nose flared, and his palm gripped the door paneling.
“Don’t do that Chloe, for my peace of mind.”

   Nodding her head towards the shower stall, she said, “Warren, you were going to clean up, remember?”

   Shaking his head, he made one more plea. “Chloe, can I at least get to know you? Would you give me a chance, please?” She didn’t utter a word. But he pressed on. “Or are you involved with someone else?” There, it was out in the open. She couldn’t kiss him like that and be in a serious affair! Right?

   “And what about Louisa?” his inner voice yelled. Pushing aside his girlfriend’s image, he trapped Chloe with his eyes.

   Tapping her thumb against the wall, she huffed, “Are you asking me out again?
Charming Warren
After I’ve made it clear I’m not interested in having a quickie romance. Are you in short supply of women around the world? I can’t throw my heart on the firing line for you. I was hooked once, but what did you do?”

He had broken her tender heart. And, he could break her healed heart again, and he wouldn’t even know it.

   “You were hooked on me, once and I didn’t even know it. When was that? Why didn’t you tell me?”

   Waving his questions aside, Chloe interjected, “Yes. I’m involved with someone. Before you ask, I’m not revealing his identity.” Her chin took on a stubborn slant.

   Warren growled, marching in and out of the bathroom.

   “I’m sorry Warren. I can’t go out with you.”

   “Why not?” he asked.

   She looked up at him, her expression wary. “You’re being unreasonable, Warren.”

   He shut his eyes and took in deep breath, inhaling her seductive blend of peach blossom, jasmine and blond wood fragrance teasing his nostrils, warming his insides, melting his resolve.

“Didn’t our kiss mean anything to you?” Warren asked his voice hoarse.

   She waved off his reference to their tango in the sand. “My boyfriend wouldn’t share me with you or with anyone else. And I think I’m in love with him. Besides, you’re hooked to Louisa, remember?”

   His hand reached for the left side of his chest as the muscle in his neck jerked. “Was it the pain-in-the-butt man that tagged along with you to the awards? Drop him and you won’t regret it.”

Loud silence filled the hallway.

#Brides From #Africa 2- #BurundianBride

Welcome to Brides from Africa!

I hope you are having a fun-filled weekend. In Africa, quite often, we attend weddings on Saturdays.

Today on Brides From Africa, I'm sharing photos of beautiful brides from Burundi.


Here are traditional Burundian brides. 

Burundi is a landlocked country in East Central Africa. The country is bordered by Rwanda on the north, Tanzania on the east and south and Democratic Republic of Congo on the west. 

There are Tutsis, Hutus and Twas and they speak Kirundi, a Bantu language.

Banana wine, a homemade concoction is essential at any Burundian celebration. A glass can knock you over!

Here is a Burudian saying: Muzungu [white people] have the clocks, but Burundians’ have the time!
