Mind- The Trinity Trilogy, Book 2 by Audrey Carlan

Title: Mind, Trinity Trilogy, Book 2
Author: Audrey Carlan
Genre: Erotic Contemporary Romance
Tour Host: DRC Promotions


I’m a magnet for evil and controlling men. Chase, my big business tycoon and love of my life, thinks he can protect me…he can’t.
No one can.
It became clear far too late how serious my stalker was, that his threats weren’t idle. He proved more than once that he would do what it takes, that there were no stakes too high to his sick and twisted games and delusions of worship.
We should have been better prepared. The roses, images, lingerie soaked in his seed, even his calling card written in blood didn’t penetrate. I had faith that my love could make it go away, that eventually he’d be caught.
I was wrong.
In the second highly anticipated erotic suspense novel in the Trinity Trilogy, MIND digs deep into the heart and psyche of Gillian and her stalker through dueling POVs.
While Chase and Gillian plan their wedding, follow them and the entire gang as the stalker acts out his revenge and plots his attack on Gillian, Chase, and their friends.
This book can be considered dark, erotic, and thrilling. As in Body (Trinity Trilogy Book 1) the issue of domestic violence plays heavily in the storyline, and Gillian experiences many disturbing flashbacks of the past, alongside tragedy the stalker brings to the present. There is also a lot of love, devotion, and friendship.
Warning: This book is designed for audiences 18+ due to language, graphic sexual content, and themes that some may find disturbing. MIND is book 2 of a three-part trilogy. Body (Trinity Trilogy - Book 1) must be read prior to reading MIND.


“That’s it baby, you take my cock,” he presses deep. “Take. It. All. The. Way.” He grunts until he’s seated to the very hilt, his heavy balls slapping against the crack of my ass. “You feel me, Gillian. You feel me inside you. I’m always going to be there. Taking you, taking what’s mine, giving you what’s yours.” He breathes heavily as he stirs his cock inside me. “You want that? All of me. Every” thrust “fucking,” thrust, “inch” thrust, “Of me,” thrust,” is yours,” he lets out in a feverish rush.
He tugs at my hips spearing me on his thick cook, the lips of my sex protesting with each massive thrust. It’s divine. Him taking me this way. Proving that nothing will keep him from me.
“What do you feel?” He brings a wicked thumb into the mix, swirling the digit around my clit in dizzying circles that sends lightning to my sex.
“I feel…” I try to catch my breath as my orgasm builds, swirls like a boiling pot, my spine tightening, limbs protesting as the first waves of release shimmer through me. “I feel us.” He smiles, comes down onto me and powers into me.
“What else?” He grates. His skin is shining with sweat at the effort to hold back, not just pound and pour into me. No, he wants it to be good for me and it always is.
“Baby, it’s everything,” I whisper into his ear as I cling to him in a full body clench before tipping my head back and roaring through my release. I grip him to me so tightly I can feel the exact moment his spine stiffens, one vertebra at a time, in extreme pleasure, before pouring his release into me. The orgasm goes on and on as we both ride the wave for long minutes.
When I come back from Nirvana, I’m still clinging to him, only now I’m sprawled naked on his chest, both of us panting like we just ran a full marathon. Chase extends his arm and shuffles through his pants. He pulls out his phone holds it out and takes a picture.
“Now look at the camera for me this time. I want to keep this moment with me forever,” he says. I can only oblige him. Certain that my breasts are plastered against his chest I peek up through my hair and my hiding place on his chest. One of my hands is lying against his rapidly beating heart. We both look at the camera, and I give my secret smile, the one I only give to him. He takes the picture and turns it around so I can see. It’s breathtakingly beautiful. I see the Drum Bridge clearly in the distance but most importantly, I see Chase, his eyes sated and untarnished by his past or our current situation. My own gaze is soft, resplendent. Mostly, it’s just another candid moment of us in love.
“Send it to me…that one is special,” I use the same words he used about the other image. He nods once and then tosses the phone back down near his pants. We lay together for a long time.
“Do you think it will always be this good between us?” I finally ask. His arms tighten along my bare back and waist.
I lean up and rest my chin on his chest like I usually do after we make love.
“I don’t know why it wouldn’t. I’m positive there is no other woman for me. No one else would put up with me the way you do.” He waggles his eyebrows, but I know there is some truth in his statement.
Kissing him softly, I pull back. “You’re right. No woman in their right mind would put up with you,” he cringes, but I continue. “Special dates and private garden showings, rooftop brunches, endless love making where the woman’s pleasure is paramount…you’re right. You’re ridiculous!” I giggle, and he nuzzles my nose.
“You’re cute.”
“Didn’t we already have this conversation? Cute is for puppies and newborns not naked women in their twenties who allow you to ravish them in public gardens.”
Chase laughs, and I enjoy feeling his cock wiggle within me. He likes to stay connected to me for as long as possible, but I know our private time is running out.
“Don’t we need to go?”
He kisses me then sits up. I shimmy off him and stand. The mixture of our combined releases coats my thighs and starts running down my leg. Chase watches closely, a predatory gleam in his eyes and a crooked, sexy smile on his face. I roll my eyes and grab the soft napkin that came with our picnic, wiping the mess up before putting on my panties, bra, and dress.
Chase dresses and I start to put everything away. “Leave it. I’ve paid someone to take care of it for us.” Of course he did. I shake my head and he puts my cardigan over my shoulders, the chill of the late afternoon in San Francisco starting to encroach.
“Next up...dessert,” Chase says as he leads me out the gate of the garden. I close my eyes and try to imprint today’s experience so that I can go back to it often. Whenever I have a rough day, I’m going to go back to those rainbow steps that tell a story so beautiful one must experience it with their own eyes, and the magical garden where Chase made wild and crazy love to me under the cool shade of a willow tree.
“I thought that’s what we just had,” I say, the innuendo clear in my tone.
“You saucy little vixen, come on. I know a place that serves up the best caramel cupcakes baked fresh every day.”
“You had me at ‘saucy little vixen’,” I grin.


I was hooked on this trilogy by about page 4 of Body. This second installment is amazing! I love where the story is going and I cannot wait to see how it ends. This book is a bit darker than the first one, and we get to crawl into the mind of Gillian’s stalker and see how he ticks. I could not put the book down, and in fact, I have read it more than once it is that good.

Now that Chase and Gillian are planning the wedding, things are moving quickly. She is going to move into the penthouse, and Maria is going to move into a condo. Security is tight around Gillian. The press is ripping into her, so the besos are rallying around her. Chase gets his way and is moving the wedding from a year to only six weeks away. The stalker has her apartment wired and hears this, which kicks his plans into high gear. But they do not know that the bad guy is going to take all of her friends away from her so that Gillian will only have him to turn to. And the starker has no problems with other people getting caught in the crossfire.

When one of the group is targeted and gets hurt by a bomb, Gillian’s world gets turned on its head. Someone of their group has a surprising announcement, and with the wedding on hold, Gillian’s demons come back. Between the flashbacks and the nightmares, she is a mess. The whole group is taken through hell and back with the stalker working hard at eliminating each of them. And he might just succeed. But Gillian and Chase might be focusing on the wrong person. When their target tears into their world and is thwarted, they might have let their guard down too much, and the happiest day of Gillian’s life might not be so.

I loved this book and I cannot wait for the next one. The cliffhanger nearly had me chucking my kindle across the room. I knew it would happen, but it still had me catching my breath. This is a great trilogy, and if you love sexy men, feisty women, and a huge dose of suspense, grab this book. It is full of surprises and twists and turns.

Death Design by N.L. Hoffmann

The Daughters of Darkness Banner

Death Design is available now!

Death Design

Sin Noble is the President’s personal assassin, due to her unique ability to kill. What most don’t know is, he’s also her brother, and not at all the cuddly or loving kind, either. After surviving a difficult childhood and life on the streets, she adapted to her murder-for-hire lifestyle by going against nature and using her reaping powers to take enemies of the President before their time. As Death incarnate, Sin has the unique ability to alter the Death Design—the pattern that decides who should die, and when.
But tempting fate doesn’t come without a price. Or a questionable relationship with alcohol.
When she is sent by her brother to assassinate a suspected blackmailer, Sin soon realizes that the situation is more complicated than he let on. She is partnered with another employee of the President, Liam Sanders, whom she hates with a passion. When push comes to shove, that passion soon turns into something her hormones can’t refuse, and Sin can’t live without.
Constantly running up against her Supernatural fathers and sarcastic sisters, Sin’s tangled web of a mission reveals that The Covert is once again preying on all of the world’s inhabitants. Sin is desperate to discover the truth before she decides to take another life outside the Death Design. Will she be able to accomplish the impossible, while being pursued herself by mysterious dark forces? One thing is certain: no can escape their destiny.
All will be revealed in the Death Design.

Taking out a precut head of Reed, I taped it to the girl’s body, and then showed him. “I kind of like your legs better in this one.” “I am your boss. So when I say that I need you to investigate, then you need to go do it,” he said, becoming impatient. Another thing that he had also developed since becoming the President: impatience. He wanted his way, a hundred percent of the time. Placing his new body in a hidden box I had in my desk drawer, I finally met his dark brown-eyed gaze. “Look, just because you are the President of our wonderful country, doesn’t mean I am at your beck and call. I still have rights, you know. Not only that, I am not your pet killer. I don’t just go around sending people to the other side because you said so. It has to be their time, and you know how the process works.”

"SPOTLIGHT" Author, John Howell

Rave Reviews Book Club's "SPOTLIGHT" Author Blog Tour

Thank you, for having me on your post today. Since this is the first stop on the Rave Reviews Author Spotlight Tour, I think it appropriate to let your readers know a little about me for their files.
This is the first stop on what will be a fantastic tour as a Rave Reviews Spotlight Author. If you would like to be chosen for this honor you need to be a member. To find out how go to the website and read all about it. You can also see all my tour stops listed under Spotlight Authors.

Born in Detroit Michigan and pretty much on my own from my eighteenth birthday, I graduated from Michigan State University and went to work for a large consumer packaged goods company. Since my first work experience was so interesting, I pretty much stayed close to the consumer business. After about forty-five years as a prisoner of organized commerce, I made a break for it and succeeded in escaping. During the previous ten years before my successful dash for liberty, I struggled with writing a novel and it eventually grew to over 100,000 words.  I finally printed it off the computer for the purposes of editing. After about fifty pages I realized it was a piece of bad writing and it is currently earning its keep holding the laundry room door open in a breeze.

I don’t think the ten years were wasted since the time spent on the manuscript gave me the experience of what was necessary to become a serious writer. I did learn for me it was impossible to write and work full time as well. I came to the decision to give up writing until I could do it full time.

I started writing full time in 2012 and finished my first novel titled My GRL in August of that year. I did a round of queries and was picked up by Martin Sisters Publishing. The paper edition of My GRL was published in December of 2013 and the E-book edition in January 2014. My next novel is a sequel to My GRL and is temporarily titled His Revenge. The manuscript has been sent to the publisher per our contract and I am waiting on news of publication. In the meantime, I am working on the third book of in the series with the working title Our Justice and plan to have the first draft finished by the end of December. After finishing, I will be starting a whole new story in January.

I am a member of Rave Reviews Book Club and serve on the Tweet Support Team which is responsible for providing our members with the kind of exposure on Twitter that can make a difference in the marketplace. If you feel you could use over 500 supportive authors as extra spokespersons for your projects this club is for you. Go here for additional information:

Excerpt #5:
The atmosphere of the club had been one I was definitely not expecting. I strolled side-by-side with Ryan, looking over to see him completely at ease. He walked as if he owned the place…which wouldn’t surprise me.
“My. My. If it isn’t Master Ryan Rayner, alive and in the flesh.” A female’s voice spoke, striding towards us.
Ryan took a hold of her hand and graciously kissed it. “Katalina darling, it is always great to see you.” He replied, taking notice of her peering at me. “Kitty-Kat, I would like for you to meet my wife. Olivia, this is the proud owner of the club Katalina.”
Shaking my hand, I couldn’t tell if her smile was sincere or faker than her tits. “I am delighted to make your acquaintance, Olivia.” Saying as her hand moved away. “Come. Allow me to guide you to your private area, sir and madam.”
We followed her into a much quieter area. I couldn’t help but have the urge to trip her…which meant I cannot trust this bitch even an ounce.
Well…this should be an absolute blast!
“I will leave the two of you alone to browse. Enjoy.” Kitty-Kat said before trotting off.
Stepping into our private room, I set my bag down on the black leather couch. “At least I have a place to change.” Smiling at my husband who has already taken on the appearance of a completely different man.
His posture had remarkably stiffened and his eyes seemed to be blazing with fire. He opened the door again and left, obviously on a mission.
Oh shit Via! What in the hell have you gotten yourself into?!

My resume goes beyond author. I have a mini-me daughter, Viola-Charlotte, who is three-years-old with plenty of attitude. My publishing company, Lock & Key Publications, launched this year. I wanted to branch out my skills in the book publishing world. I live in a scarcely small town surrounded by my crazy family. When I make myself take a break from the book world (which is rare), I like to treat myself out to a movie or dinner with friends where I may or may not be chatting about upcoming book projects. :D
