New Release Feature: Sarah J. Pepper’s SOULLESS!

Today, we're doing something a little different. I wanted to bring a new release to your attention. Sarah J. Pepper, an author I met on my journey, has an awesome new book that came out just today. Let's check out the cool details, shall we?


Book Blurb


Our love is imperfect in the most perfect way. It is love done our way. Raw. Unconventional. Sexy as hell. More importantly, it is honest to the core…Or so I think.
One little white lie shouldn't do so much damage. Yet, it changes me forever.
The worst part is that Declan whispers that sweet nothing out of protection. My safety is in the forefront of his mind, especially since there are others who’d hurt me simply to get to him. I never consider that he will be the one to cut me so deeply. But it all starts with that first prick—the night he saves my life.

His perilous stare deepened as his grip fastened around my waist. As maniacal thoughts passed over his eyes, his grasp tightened. That look confirmed that I wasn’t the only one who wanted all the space between us eliminated.
I could hardly breathe when his gaze fell to my lips. It left me without words. It was the very way a passing glance could leave you speechless. But Declan didn’t just take a glimpse. No, he unapologetically looked me over. 

He loved me in not so many words, but I heard them all the same. I heard them with each moan that echoed in the air. I felt them as he held me gently in his arms. Even if I didn’t feel the desire radiating off of him in a fury of passion, he bore that intensity in his gaze. The world around us melted away until there was only me and him.

About the series:


@unconventionaldamsels who rock piercings, refuse to conform to society’s rules, and aren’t obsessed with labels, check out the “Once Wicked” series. Happily Ever After doesn't define the misunderstood evil villains we love to hate. Their story is so much deeper than their fairy princess counterparts, yet were never told. That's a damn shame. They aren't always as wicked as they are made out to be. Well, not all of them. So until the clock strikes midnight and the (other) glass shoe drops, enjoy these not-so-Prince-Charming book boyfriends in this modern series, #OnceWicked.


And Sarah is giving us an exclusive excerpt of her book!


He was so close to losing me…The torment residing within his eyes was paramount. His devotion to me was no secret. I already knew that he would hide many things from me, but he would never withhold his feelings for me. My death would have been his undoing. It would have ruined him. Yet, I knew without a shred of doubt he would have given me up if it was what I wanted.

“I couldn’t give you up,” I whispered.

“A better man would have still let you go.”

“My life has been one hard decision after another. I had no illusions that death would be any different,” I said, raising my chin in confidence. “All I ever wanted was to be free of the past that has defined me, and when you walked into my life, you redefined everything.”

You redefined everything,” he confessed, tucking a rogue hair behind my ear. “That wasn’t my doing. It wasn’t a part of my plan. Everything I had orchestrated crumbled the moment you…”

“The moment I what?”

I held my breath, waiting for him to reply. I swear that time slowed as he considered his response.

“Enslaved me.”

The deepness of his voice sent shivers throughout my body. The way he could light my body ablaze with a single, dark confession was ethereal.

My life was never destined to be a “vanilla love story.” That any romance had been written into my life was a twist I hadn’t expected. I used to think that love at first sight was an urban legend. I wouldn’t demean my first encounter with Declan as an insta-love. What we shared didn’t fit in the conventional box society labeled as a fairy tale kind of love.

To be fair, I wasn’t a goodie-two-shoes princess. I actually smirked at the idea of me being a prim and proper girl, instead of one who was a repeat offender of pickpocketing and wasn’t above blackmail. So the idea of Prince Charming rescuing me from my jacked-up life was hysterical. But that was exactly what had happened; except my Prince Charming was a bad boy with a demon complex.
Declan Stilts—alias Declan Rumpelstiltskin—was the kind of guy prissy girls had nightmares about. However, I had developed an unhealthy habit of fantasizing about him. I spent many nights wishing he was tangled up in my bed sheets instead of us being apart. I hated how much his absence left a void in my life. Not that I would ever admit to him how often I thought about him; but the simple truth was that he was constantly on my mind.

Without a whisper of doubt, I knew I could never escape him…Not that I wanted to. That scared me and excited me all the same. He was always going to be there. Moreover, I never thought I was the type who was in need of rescuing or protecting. But I was oh-so-very-wrong. Declan seemed to know exactly what was in store for me. He knew me better than I knew myself.

Was that goddamn scary to anyone else? Was I just a chicken shit when it came to commitment? My pulse sped as I realized how predictable I had become while he remained a mystery.

As if sensing my uncertainty, Declan took my face in his hands and stole another kiss. He kissed me like he was drowning. It was in that moment I realized how deep I was in as well.
