Synopsis

For twenty-something Boston school teacher Ruth, she’s gotten by just fine on playing it safe, thank you very much. But now her risk-free life and nice-girl demeanor are leaving her increasingly heartsick. So when she meets bad boy Derek, she’s willing to overlook her “no romance” rule and give him a chance to prove her fears wrong. Because he, also, is plagued by a sense of ennui and pointlessness, wanting to change his fast-and-loose living but not knowing how.

Neither can deny the inexplicable, illogical attraction drawing them together, and they are hard-pressed to resist it. But what will their unlikely relationship cost, and who will be caught in the crossfire?

The Light Between Us is a sassy and sensual romp. Part love story, part comedy of errors, part and coming of age tale, The Light Between Us is a delicious read for fans of the romance and new adult genres alike.

“The Light Between Us is a raw and powerful love story about forgiveness and learning to trust our instincts. Sexy and intense, I couldn’t put this novel down and wished, at the last chapter, for more.” – H. Mattern, author of Saving Katie Baker

excerpt

Derek placed his hand over hers where it rested on the table. She stared at the sight of his hand on hers. Was this really happening? The hottest guy in the bar – no, the hottest guy in ever – was interested in her? Was touching her? She wasn’t sure if she should be flattered or suspicious.

To hell with should, she told herself firmly.

Then he looked Ruth squarely in the eye and – her mouth fell open – drawing her hand to his mouth, placed a warm kiss on its back.

She froze. She was probably meant to find the gesture alluring, she knew, but all she could think of was how her father used to kiss her mother’s hand in just the same way when he wanted her to shut up, to quit nagging him or wanting him to take her out or put his dirty socks in the damn hamper already. And her mother would always, always fall silent, her voice somehow smothered by an act that should have been one of love, and instead had become one of dominance, of distance.

Ruth felt her face twist in revulsion. She refused to be the silent – no, silenced – partner in any relationship, no matter how superficial.

“I’m sorry.” She sprang to her feet, sure that her whole face shone crimson but not much caring. “I have to go. My friends – they – sorry . . .” Ruth wheeled away, not caring to finish making her thin excuses.

When her friends noticed her approach, their faces lit, then quickly fell when they noticed her expression.

“Ruth, are you okay?” Padme asked, sitting bolt upright.

“You look like you’re going to puke,” said Maddie. “What the hell happened? Do you need me to go kick that sleazebag in the nuts for you?”

Ruth shook her head. “No, nothing happened.” He’s just probably a slime ball. Like every other guy in ever, she added mentally. She grabbed her coat and her purse.

“But . . . at least let us walk you to the T,” Cecelia said, moving to follow her.

She drew a deep breath, feeling a pressing need to get out of the bar’s stuffy clamor, alone. “No, I’m fine. Really, you should stay. I’ll get a cab.” She paused. “I just need some fresh air and then my bed.”

“Well, if you’re sure,” Padme said, face twisted with concern. “Text me when you get home, so I know you’re safe?”

Ruth nodded and ducked through the crowd, keeping her eyes away from the table where Derek still sat. Probably thinking I’m the biggest ass of all time, she thought, rolling her eyes. But as she shoved out the door into the pleasantly cool autumn night, she couldn’t help but throw one more glance his way. She started – he was staring right back with a hurt expression on his face.

She’d hurt him? Could she really possess this power? She couldn’t fathom it.

Ruth shook off the shock and kept moving. Outside, she stood on the sidewalk, breathing deep, feeling her lungs expand more fully out in the fresh air, gulping the crisp scent of fall down to her depths.

What the hell was wrong with her? Could she have misread his gesture? A perfectly fine – no, a perfectly fine – man had showed an interest in her, and she’d gone running for the hills at the tiniest trigger?

It didn’t matter. Even if the kiss had not been what she thought it was, he was probably still another disappointment in the relationship department. Aside from her novel characters, she’d had yet to meet a man who was anything else. Ruth shook her head at herself, sure that she should have known better, and stepped forward to flag down a cab.

Hi! I’m Milly (AKA April Angel) I love to write sexy stories. They’re usually either paranormal or contemporary with a large dose of heat. My paranormal stories can be anything from wolf-shifters (my favorites) to witches, demons and anything in between. I was born the prettiest part of the Caribbean known as the Dominican Republic. Currently, I live in New York City with my hubby, the bossy kiddo and our little dog “Needy Speedy”. Don’t ask.
When I’m not working some really long hours at the day job, or hanging out in the awful life-sucking invention known as Facebook, messaging my bestie in the UK or shopping with my sis Julie, then I can be found watching scary movies. Buuut when I’m not doing that, I’m usually writing because the voices won’t shut up.
I am addicted to shoe shopping, chocolate (but who isn’t, right?) and Dunkin’ Donuts coffee.
Come by and visit me! I love to meet new readers!

Author: Elle Boon

Genre: Fantasy/ Erotica

Tour Organizer: N K Author Services


Rafe and Vin, had been best friends for thousands of years. They were part of an elite group called the Ravens of War, and were made up of twelve men created by Zeus. When they were no longer needed on Olympus, they’d been sent to Earth to find happiness, and hopefully their Fated.
For Tamara she’d given up finding that one man meant just for her, having the ability to see the future ran in her family. So when she saw her own death, she set out to enjoy what she had left. That didn’t include two larger than life men who claimed she was their one.
Cronus pulled Tamara to Hell, and planned to use her as leverage to get his granddaughter, Selena, whose Tamara’s best friend to bargain for her life.
Rafe, Vin and all the Ravens need the help of the gods and goddesses from Olympus to save not only Tamara, but Earth itself.



I’m a wife and mother who is a retired stay at home mom. I say retired because my youngest is 14. When my baby went to school, reading saved my sanity, and then the same year he started school, I was diagnosed with Cancer, again reading saved my sanity. When I recovered and realized how quickly life changed I made a bucket list. The number one thing was to live. Check. On that list was to become a published author. Eight years later I have accomplished that goal and several others.
I live in the Midwest, but am a southern girl with only a slight twang who says y’all quite frequently and am known to say “bless your heart” A LOT. If you know what that means, you do not want to be the one I say that too lol. I cuss worse than if a trucker and a sailor were put together, but I do it with class lol.
I write what I love to read, erotic romance. My books are definitely full of lots of story, but I leave nothing to the imagination when it comes to the sex. My hope, is that after my readers have read one of my stories they fall in love with my characters as much as I have.
The best part of my new journey is that I get to create new worlds and have all kinds of stories in my head just waiting to be written.
I love to hear from readers, you can find me on twitter or Facebook or my website, but I’m on Facebook all the time, so find me, I’d love to hear from you J


Excerpt 

If
this was how she was going to die, Tamara was okay with it. In fact, she was
ready to sign the papers right then and there.
The
feel of a hot, hard body covering her again, and something much larger than
fingers or a tongue between her thighs, brought her eyes flying open to see
Rafe poised above her. He had that monster he’d assured her would fit, in his
right hand, but it was the anxiety in his eyes that gave her the courage to
raise her arms and welcome him into her body.
“I’ll
go slowly,” he promised.
She
nodded. The head was flushed a deep purple, and as he slipped between her
thighs she fell back and closed her eyes.
“Hey.
Look at me.” Vin turned her face to him. His hand went between her and Rafe.
She
was sure she couldn’t come again, that her clit was too sensitive to be
touched, but Vin’s fingers proved her wrong.
Rafe
entered her an inch at a time. So slowly, she swore it would take him forever
before he was fully seated. With Vin playing with her clit, and sucking on her
breasts, she didn’t feel any pain, only a slight burn that turned to complete
bliss. She wanted to have him fill her completely. Her hips lifted and pressed
forward to get his thick shaft deeper, until every inch of him was in her.
Finally, when his groin was flush with hers, she stared up into his
dark-as-night eyes and realized she wanted to spend forever with these two
amazing men. She turned to see Vin was propped up on his elbow staring at them.
She reached out to pull him into a deep kiss, wanting him to be connected to
her too. She cursed the fates, for allowing her to come to the realization that
she was completely and totally in love with not one, but two men, only to take
it all away so soon.
With
a groan, Rafe started thrusting, going deep and then pulling out. She loved the
sound of their flesh slapping, loved the feel of his balls hitting her rear on
every downward stroke. Gods, but she actually enjoyed having Vin’s finger there
too.
Tamara
was lost to everything, except the sensation of lips and tongue, and being
filled and loved by two men. Time didn’t matter, her world narrowed down to
being with Rafe and Vin, to how it felt to finally know what love was.
Each
time Rafe withdrew she whimpered, and then gasped as he pushed back inside. His
thrusts sped up. Her body became attuned to his, taking everything he offered
and wanting more. She closed her eyes, feeling the tug of Vin’s mouth on her
breasts, sending an echo to her clit. The orgasm she was sure she’d not reach
again was close.
“Come
for me, omorfia mou,” Rafe whispered.
And just like that the tingle started in her toes, and worked its way up.
“Yes,
god…yes,” she screamed.
Vin
released her nipple with a pop.
Rafe
continued to thrust his hips, his hands holding her thighs wide until he too
groaned out his own satisfaction. He bent and kissed Tamara long and hard. “S’agapo,” he murmured.
As
Rafe rolled to the side of the bed Vin wasted no time. She expected him to be a
gentle lover, but wasn’t surprised to find he was every bit as large as Rafe,
and a bit impatient.
“Good,
god almighty. Seriously?” Tamara wasn’t sure how he or Rafe packed all that
into their jeans.
“We
are size appropriate, love.” Vin winked.
She
raised her hands and held them apart. “That is size appropriate.”
Vin
stuck his bottom lip out. “Can we discuss this later?”
Tamara
laughed. He was just too darn cute.
He
dropped down on top of her and rolled. She was still laughing when he sat her
astride him. “Do you know how to ride, darling?”
“I
think I can figure it out.” She placed her hands on his muscular chest. Neither
he nor Rafe had any hair on their chests, but both had a happy trail leading to
their groins.
She
worried first one, then the other flat male nipple with her tongue, then nipped
it with her teeth.
He
gripped her hips with his large hands, and while she was rubbing back and
forth, teasing them both, he plunged inside her in one swift push.
“Fuck,
yes,” he groaned.
“Oh,
Vin…” Tamara tossed her head back. He stretched her, gave her no respite. His
hands lifted her and brought her back down. He set up a punishing rhythm. And
she relished it, sliding down his cock as if he was big enough to split her in
two. Only he and Rafe were right. They were made for her, and she was made for
them.
Vin
groaned, the sound so carnal she knew he was close. His head was tipped back,
the cords of muscles in his neck stood out. She had an urge to lean forward and
bite him. A hand at her back, pressing her forward, settled the internal
debate.

A
finger rubbed against her ass, but the pounding of Vin in her pussy and the
constant friction against her clit, had her close to coming again.
