Excerpt:  Until Jax

“Thank you again for taking me.” Pulling my eyes from the road for a brief moment, I look at Ellie. Her head is resting against the window, her legs pulled up onto the seat, tucked near her ass, and her arms are wrapped tight around them. One thing I’ve noticed about her over the last few hours is she’s always wrapping her arms around herself or tucking her body into a tight ball. It’s like she’s forcing herself to stay together.

“I told you I got you, baby,” I say gently, wanting more than anything to take her hand in mine, but every time I touch her, she freezes up like she’s waiting for me to strike out at her, and I would be lying if I said that didn’t piss me the fuck off. It does; it feels like a slap in the face every time it happens.

“I know,” she whispers, and the tears I hear in her voice cause a sharp pain in my chest.


“This is the turnoff.” Her feet go to the floorboard and her hands to the dash as she sits up taller, moving her face closer to the windshield. We drive up a long dirt driveway with forest and the occasional broken down car on each side. When we make it to the top of the hill, a singlewide trailer comes into view, with junk cars and garbage piled up out front.

As soon as I come to a stop, she opens her door and hops out before I can tell her to keep her little ass in the cab. I don’t even know how I’m going to deal with the range of emotions that have settled over me since seeing her for the first time.

“Fucking Boom,” I mutter, getting out behind her and doubling my steps until I’m able to reach her side, where I wrap my hand around her waist and pull her closer to me. She’s so fucking tiny that the top of her dark head sits right at my chest. So fragile, from her too soft skin to her petite size. And she’s mine.

My name is Francesca Elizabeth Miller. I’m a Los Angeles based writer who worked for years as an entertainment journalist and movie reviewer in print, on-line and radio. My interests are American history, cinema with an interest in silent movies, Pre-Code Hollywood and classic films, and contemporary Gothic literature. I write Young Adult Fiction with strong female protagonists, co-authored a biography of Sarah Bernhardt, two articles published by The Lancet, and a well-received article for the prestigious British publication, History Today. I’m a member of Romance Writers of America, the Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, (SCBWI) and the International Press Academy.
My interest main interest is New Adult and my writing is moving in that direction. Although I’ve written three unpublished Young Adult manuscripts, my first published work as Lee Rene was The New Orleans Hothouse, a 54,000 erotic romance set in 1950s New Orleans. It’s a raunchy work with a male protagonist, a young Jewish guy named Danny Rothstein, who travels to New Orleans from Las Vegas for a hotel deal. A product of the button-down fifties, Danny thinks he knows everything about women. His life falls apart when he meets Yvette Delacroix, a cigarette girl who has sampled life on the wild side.

Strip bars, the shadowy world of clandestine sex clubs, and the scorching encounters between Danny Rothstein and liberated heroine are some of the provocative elements in The New Orleans Hothouse, an erotic romance set in the noir splendor of 1950s’ New Orleans. The New Orleans Hothouse is an explicit glimpse at the carnal underworld of New Orleans and unlike many erotic romances, the novel gives the reader a male point of view.

Danny Rothstein, a handsome young casino owner, leaves Las Vegas for New Orleans. Danny is a product of the button-down fifties and thinks he knows everything about women. His life comes apart at the seams when he meets Yvette Delacroix, a nineteen-year-old cigarette girl who has sampled life on the wild side. After a dark encounter in a sex club, the two embark on a torrid romance that challenges everything Danny believes about female sexuality and love. At the end of Danny’s passionate journey, he learns bad girls can be very good indeed.

IndieWritersReview Welcomes The Dragonmaster by C.P. Bialois! COVER REVEAL and Excerpt Feature!!

Hello everyone! Today I’m VERY happy to share the cover for the fifth Sword and the Flame novel, The Dragonmaster  by Author C.P. Bialois! It’s now available for pre-order and release day is November 1st!!

And here it is…

The Dragonmaster


When the Gods call, mortals answer.

Reaching Solava Proper seemed like the end of their journey, but fate and the Gods have other plans for Gilliam and his friends.

Old friendships are rekindled and strained as the friends are forced to find a way to prevent an upcoming war and protect an innocent princess tied to the heart of it all.

Through their adventures, the Phoenix watches as he prepares for a possible conflict between the Gods. When a single move could mean failure, will his efforts succeed or be for naught?



Without a word, Fauna nudged her horse toward the portal with Mern at her side. The usual floating and light-headed sensation swept through them as they traveled the roads of magic. Once they stepped through, the portal closed, but not before a smaller shape hurried into the opening behind them. With its use completed, the portal closed as though it had never been there.

Stepping through into a strange forest was bewildering at first, but Mern and Fauna’s previous use of such traveling methods gave them the knowledge that the feeling would pass. For the one following them, it proved something else entirely.

Reh Venata was many things, but a dabbler in the ways of magic wasn’t one of them. The magical portal had looked like a doorway, but once inside she found it difficult to navigate. Countless voices called to her from every direction, and images of places she had wished to see again appeared all around her.

The only thing she could so was try to follow the magus further, but her feet couldn’t find a purchase on the swirling ground. She was about to scream for help when the pair disappeared. The swirling whiteness of the portal shifted and started to shrink. Without thinking, Reh let out a squeal of fright and dove toward the first image she saw of a chamber room.

She closed her eyes and prayed the image she saw was in her father’s castle. The next thing she knew, she landed on her stomach with a thud among a series of shouts and curses. It took her a moment to realize she was laying on someone.

“Get off me, blast you, or I’ll send you to the Abyss!”

At hearing the shouting, Reh expected to be back with the Goblins, but when no one grabbed her, she forced her eyes open and found herself in a dining hall. It took her less than a second to understand she wasn’t in her father’s castle, but it looked familiar. When she looked down to see a Dwarf with a gray-touched red beard beneath her she let out a gasp.

“Oh, I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to… I mean, I did, but I… Oh, dear.” Reh tried to push herself from her perch on top of the Dwarf, but her hand slipped and she drove her knee into him. The Dwarf’s eyes crossed, his face turned red, and tears poured down his cheeks.

“Blasted… Gods…” The Dwarf rolled over and spilled Reh onto the stone floor.

Reh pushed herself to her knees and looked around at the faces staring at her. “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean anything.” Gentle hands took hold of her shoulders and helped her to her feet.

“It’s all right. No one is blaming you.” The man holding her smiled.

About the author:

CP Author Pic

CP Bialois’ love of words began as a small child when his father bought a stack of comics to teach him the reading skills he wasn’t mastering in class. Before long, he was reading at an advanced level and teachers were shaking their heads over the unconventional method.

Growing up in the ‘80s, Bialois was exposed to even further inspiration through the popular cartoons of the day. Transformers, in particular, sparked his imagination and led to him put his first stories on paper. After a decades-long break, Bialois began getting back into the world of writing by joining some role-playing groups. These groups taught him about fleshing out characters and building worlds that stuck with him as he began writing short stories for fun.

To his surprise, Bialois would end up completing his first full-length novel, Call of Poseidon, in 2007. Armed with a finished product, Bialois began working on another book, The Sword and the Flame, unsure of what he would ultimately be doing with either. As with many others in the later part of the first decade of the 2000’s, he found himself out of work and looking into new options. Over the next two years, he would spend most days at the library, completing an additional half-dozen works.

Twelve books later, Bialois is planning for the release of many more and enjoying the feedback he receives. The up-and-coming author takes inspiration from favorites such as Steven King, Tom Clancy and Sue Grafton. His love of history, fantasy and old monster movies has also served as a muse.

When he’s not busy writing or chatting on his social networks, Bialois enjoys watching hockey and football as well as Metallica DVDs. He currently lives with his wife- a fellow writer- and their fur children. CP Bialois is also active in several South Florida writing groups, as well as the online writer community, and the Florida Writers Association.

You can find CP through his website, Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads.

After he leaves, I open his wallet, reading his name, address, weight. All of it.

“Phillip DeLuca.” I taste his name running off my lips as I trace my finger over his picture. He’s so handsome. He’s the kind of guy most people would be afraid of, but not me. I want to get to know him. Lost in a daydream, my car door is yanked open.

“Where the fuck is it, bitch?”

“What?” I shriek as I’m pulled out of the car and slammed forward onto the hot hood. “I don’t have anything!” I scream, trying to pull free. He shoves me back down on the hood. His hand tangled in my hair.

“Don’t think about moving,” he spits, his tone harsh. I roll my eyes and continue leaning over the hood. My heart slams against my chest in pure panic, and my hands shake. He pulls away and leans in to the car. Within seconds, he finds his wallet. Shit.

He peers at me with a fierce energy in his eyes. The intensity has me pulling off the hood, scared out of my mind.

“You have some balls,” he mutters, shoving his wallet back in his pocket. His tone is soft and tender suddenly. I turn my head and eye him angrily.

“Fuck you.” I cross my arms and lean my hip against the car. My choice of words more confident than I’m feeling.

He steps up to me and grabs my hips hard with both hands. My skin burns, and my mouth parts with desire. His brown eyes find mine, and his hands yank my body closer to his. I feel like all the air is sucked from my lungs as I search his dark eyes. Placing my hands on his solid chest to steady myself, my palms buzz with excitement.

“You’d like that, wouldn’t you?” He looks me up and down and leans in close. “You’d like it if I pushed you over the hood of this car and fucked you ‘til your legs gave out.” His words feather against my lips, he’s so close. I hold my breath, willing my body to pull away, but I don’t move. Just when I think he’s going to kiss me, he grabs my hand and pulls it upward. I furrow my brows and watch as he pulls a pen from his back pocket, pulling the cap off with his teeth. He writes his number and the word ‘Lip’ on my hand.

“Call me. Don’t make me come find you, Cherry.”

“Cherry?” I ask out loud.

“Your swimsuit,” he yells over his shoulder before starting his bike. I look down at my white shirt noticing my cherry bikini peeking out from the bust line. A smile creeps across my face. I know I shouldn’t like him, but I kind of do. Driving past me, he winks and I swear I sigh like a damn fool.

What happens when the one you want is the only one you can’t have?

My name is Sevin.

Homeschooled and sheltered by my ultra-religious family, I was always taught that lust was a sin.

Elle was the girl who’d been carefully chosen for me.

After a long-distance courtship, I’d be moving into her family’s guesthouse so that we could get to know each other in the months before the wedding.

Boundaries were set: no inappropriate touching, no kissing, no sex before marriage.

I’d accepted those rules and my fate.

Until I met the one I wanted to sin with.

That was when restraint became a problem…especially since THE ONE wasn’t Elle.

It was her sister, Evangeline.

You know what they say about best laid plans.

My name is Sevin, and I have sinned.

Told in alternating points of view, Sins of Sevin is a full-length standalone novel.

Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language.

Only appropriate for adult readers

All I could hear was the cracking of the branches and leaves under my feet. Dodging the trees and trying not to fall, I ran as fast as I could. The quicker I ran, the harder my heart pounded against my chest. I didn’t hear him anymore, but I knew he was still behind me. I could feel him getting closer.

When I saw an opening in the trees I turned and headed toward it. I felt like everything was going to be okay. I walked out of the trees into the bright moonlight, just to find myself teetering on a ledge.

A cliff? Are you kidding me?

It was a good three hundred foot drop into a canopy of trees. I wouldn’t survive the fall. I started searching for a way out of this. I looked from side to side and saw that the cliff extended for miles with no bridge in sight.

“Liliana,” he yelled, drawing out my name. He was getting closer. “You can run, but you can’t hide.”

I didn’t have much time. I started to panic as soon as I saw his shadow in the trees, and before I could take off he emerged from the tree line. I immediately took a step back, almost losing my balance. I couldn’t make out his face, but somehow I felt connected to him.

“I told you,” he said as he caught his breath, “you can’t escape me. You are mine.”

He lunged forward and I startled awake.
