BLURB

My new boss is good at giving orders. But his latest demand is NSFW. Especially when his two business partners want in on our deal.

My new boss
My boss’s boss
Their investor

These three are the last men I expect to meet at the BDSM club I go to with my girls to celebrate keeping my job after a hostile takeover of my company. But these dominant, sexy billionaires make it clear that my company is not the only thing they want to take over.

What 21st century, workaholic, career woman with a drawer full of BOBs and batteries would pass on three rugged alphas intent on scrutinizing her assets? But if anyone at work finds out about our NSFW activities, my reputation in the corporate world will be ruined. Worse, if any of the three of them discover I’m falling for them, they’ll drop me faster than a bad investment.

If you love steamy romance that packs heat as well as heart, then you’ll love the Her Masters series where a woman who thinks she knows what she wants will meet three men who give her exactly what she needs.

In Death I Live Author: Lindsay Becs




Title: In Death I Live
Author: Lindsay Becs
Genre: Dark Reverse Harem Romance
Release Date: September 17, 2021


BLURB

I’ve died several deaths over the years. Each time another piece of my soul destroyed, leaving me emptier than the time before. I came to accept that fact, knowing death—true death—would descend on me sooner rather than later.

I thought I ran away from the devil—the man who’s ruled my life—for the last time, but he found me anyway. Sculpting me once more into the good girl he needs for his bidding. Forcing me to live with strangers to learn their secrets, knowing that they’re evil, like him. But I’ll go willingly to protect the one person I love.

But these men? These so-called demons? I’m not convinced they’re like him at all. If they truly are, it’s only because they were fallen angels forced to serve a devil of their own.

If I’m right, then maybe we can all crawl out of this hell of a life together and live after all.

Now, the only question that remains is: which side is the lesser of two evils?

EXCERPT

Curled up on my side, my body trembles as he smokes next to me.
“What do you want me to do?” I finally get the nerve to ask with my back to him.
“I need you to be my little spy.”
Turning to my back, I look at him then in confusion. “What? Spy on who? What makes you think I could do something like that?”
“Because they won’t be able to keep their dirty hands off of you once they see you,” he says, blowing out a puff of smoke.
“Slater, I don’t understand. Who?”
Turning his head, he looks at me, his eyes dead as he says, “The Black Swans.”
Not knowing who these swans are that he’s talking about, I know it can’t be good. None of this is good. I should have run so much farther away.
But I couldn’t leave Remi. I couldn’t bring myself to be too far away from him. I thought I was doing it to protect him, to make sure he was safe. Instead, I put him more in danger.
Putting his hand on my cheek, his face softens. “I’m going to teach you first. Remind you who you belong to.” He smiles at me. A smile that I know is deceiving. “You know who you belong to, Zora?”
Digging my nails into my palms, I whisper, “You.”

He was supposed to protect me.
Instead, he became the monster who turned my dreams into nightmares.
He was supposed to love me. In the end, his love was poison, leaving me tarnished and hollow.
His death was supposed to bring me peace. But, his memories continue to terrorize me.

Since his first lecherous touch I’ve had only one purpose. One reason to not fully give into my demons:
The fraying hope of escaping this depraved life.

Coming back to Montecito has reinforced what I was callously taught as a child.
Everyone has something to hide … even those you hold closest.
Depravity lurks in the shadows, taunting me, waiting for the perfect moment to strike.
While anonymous threats promise nothing but bloodshed and death if I don’t obey.

My heart is torn between the three gorgeous guys who are the only bright lights in the obsidian darkness surrounding me.
But if my soul claims each of them equally, will they forgive me for refusing to choose?

When my nightmares begin to mix with reality, it’s hard to know what’s real and what’s a figment of my fractured mind.
One thing’s for sure, if my monster’s back, he’ll stop at nothing until I’m exactly how he loves me …
Destroyed.

*Destroyed is the second book in the Tainted by Ruin Trilogy and cannot be read as a standalone. It is a Dark High School Reverse Harem Romance that includes scenes that may be triggering to some. (Sexual assault, physical abuse, self harm). Recommended for readers 18+.

Indiana
A rattling sound wakes me from another monster filled nightmare. Cold blue eyes and a twisted cruel sneer are forever burned into my memory. I blink rapidly, my chest rising and falling with staggered breaths as I fight to get back to the present. The ominous rattling sound that woke me continues. Immediately, I’m out of bed and on my feet, reaching for my cell phone while my eyes search the shadows of my room. He’s back. The monster is real and he’s back from the grave to devour me.
My breaths are coming in choppy as my clammy hands work to unlock my phone. A soft knock elicits a startled gasp from me and I clutch my chest. My heart is working triple time, beating erratically, frantically. Another knock, this time a little louder.
“Indiana, it’s me. Come open the window.” Maddox’s smooth honey voice filters through the closed window.
My heart continues to skip beats, only now it’s for an entirely different reason. What is he doing here? He made it clear he doesn’t want anything to do with me.
Rushing over on wobbly legs made of jello, I pull back the curtain and open the window, letting him in. Taking a step back, I inspect Maddox’s disheveled appearance. It’s more than just climbing up the trellis to get here. His blonde waves have rivulets running through them like he’s been pulling his hand through his hair incessantly. His clothes are wrinkled and askew against his broad frame.
We stare at each other in silence for a few moments, wordlessly communicating everything and yet—nothing at all. Pain and betrayal are clear on his face. Just as I’m sure mine shows the same, with added guilt and sorrow of course.
“What are you doing here, Maddox?” I break the thick, viscous silence between us, unable to hold out any longer. His eyes narrow, gaze turning sharper, slicing through every one of my mental shields. He’s evaluating me, weighing my worth, and determining if I’ll be found wanting. The burning need to squirm under the intensity of his sapphire blues is overwhelming.
I wring my hands, swallowing thickly. Slowly, with his eyes still locked on mine, he takes purposeful steps towards me until there’s less than a foot of distance left between us. I look up, craning my neck to hold his gaze. My breath hitches when his hand reaches out to gently swipe at my cheek, bringing his thumb to his mouth. It’s then I realize I’m crying silent tears. Embarrassed I look away, roughly swiping at my stupid face. I hate crying in front of others. I spent too many years crying and begging for solace from the depraved monsters who plagued me. I refuse to give anyone else my tears of despondency.
“Don’t do that. Don’t hide from me.” Maddox growls, grabbing my chin and turning my face back towards him.
“Why, Maddox? Why shouldn’t I hide? Better yet, why do you care, I thought you were done with me?” I snap, jutting my chin up defiantly. God, I know I shouldn’t push him. I miss him so fucking much, but I’m tired of this hot and cold game he’s playing.
His voice is gentle, eyes softening when he responds, “No matter what happens between us, Blue, I will never, never, stop caring about you. Do you hear me? I will always see you, always find you, always love you.” His thumb brushes over my quivering bottom lip.

—————————————————-

Maddox
“Well isn’t this cozy.” I jerk awake and bolt upright, furiously rubbing the sleep from my bleary eyes as I scan the room, looking for the voice.
My icy gaze lands on Presley, standing on Blue’s side of the bed, leaning over her. There’s a devilish smile tugging at his lips and instantly I want to knock his teeth in. Fuck. It’s barely morning and I already want to lay into this asshole. Today’s going to be a long day if this is anything to go by. My eyes move from Presley down to Blue and I regret my choice to leave her topless last night. So. Fucking. Much.
“Get the fuck out of Indiana’s room you fucking sicko.” I roar, throwing the blanket over Blue to cover the side of her breast and exposed nipple. She stirs and lifts her arms over her head, not aware of the slithering snake in her room, ready to strike his favorite prey.
“Maddox, you stayed?” she whispers to me, cupping my scruff lined jaw.
“Of course I did, baby.” I brush our noses together.
“Well, isn’t this just a hallmark movie in the making.” Blue shrieks, and plasters herself to me, but that asshole just keeps on going.
“Girl meets boy as kids, they fall in love, but oh no, tragic circumstances pull the young lovers apart. Have no fear, though, they’re thrust back into each other’s lives a few years later and the love between them never misses a step.” he pauses and gives me a lascivious smile. “But here’s where it gets really good. Girl—still in love with her old best friend—also falls for her new tutor. She lets him eat her sweet, juicy pussy while her old best friend slash boyfriend is waiting downstairs for her, none the wiser.” Presley sucks in a gasp, a faux horrified mask falling over his face, before he continues, “Insert pause for dramatic effect.” The asshole fans his face, looking stricken.
I move to stand, ready to tear strips from this asshole’s hide, but Blue’s trembling hands wrap around my shoulders and press down, holding me in place. “Don’t.” Her one word plea eviscerates the fight in me and I slump back into the bed.
Presley strides towards the bedroom door, a maniacal laugh trailing in his wake. As he exits the room, he tosses over his shoulder, “Which boy will the girl choose, find out next week in the sequel titled, I’m a foster whore, part two.” I see red. Is there a color angrier than red? Because that’s what I’m seeing. Her bedroom door was locked last night, I made sure of that. Which means that asshole must have a key, and that just won’t due.

“Right. So for Texas Hold’em, we each get five cards,” I say quickly, nodding to Hunter. He doles out our hands, and then I get into explaining the different types of hands—royal flush, straight flush, 4 of a kind, etc. “I think it’ll be easiest if we play a straight five-card draw, so from our five cards, we can take turns exchanging one or more of them from the remaining deck.” I look at Hunter, and then at each of the guys. “Ready?”
“Easy enough,” Ash muses from across from me. “You start, little lamb.”
This place brings out the wild in us.
I can feel all of them watching me, and the hairs on the back of my neck begin to tingle.
We take turns exchanging cards until we’re all satisfied with our hands. We each lay down our cards. I have a straight flush, but Ledger has a royal flush.
“I win,” he smirks, nodding to my jacket. “Strip.”
My eyes snap to his, and something heated looks back at me. Something, not someone—almost like he’s no longer human. Not my friend—but an animal. I pull my lower lip between my teeth as I remove my jacket, and Samson begins to reshuffle the cards for the next round.
“You guys have to strip, too,” I command, glaring at Hunter, Ash, and Samson.
And they do.
The air turns then—and I’m suddenly so aware of that fact that all five of us are out here together. Alone. Teenage hormones raging, dirty thoughts racing…it’s not like there’s not a precedent. Aside from Ledger, I’ve slept with all of them. So why are my hands shaking? Don’t I trust them? Is it just being with them together—or the uncertainty of what could happen? Up here, it almost feels like there are no rules.
We continue to play. I manage to win the next round, and as the guys take off another article of clothing, my senses awaken. I can smell the cologne Hunter uses, and the laundry detergent on Samson’s shirt. The light, while bright, feels artificial, and I reach over to turn it down a couple of notches so that it’s dimmer in here. I can feel the body heat radiating off each of them—and my own, as my chest flushes with color at Ash’s lingering gaze. The clicking of the shuffling cards reverberates down my spine as Samson shuffles, his eyes never leaving mine. I end up losing my shirt, and then my pants, and I must actively keep my gaze on the floor of the tent, the plastic sticking to the backs of my bare thighs.
Hunter bought me a few new lingerie sets, including this one—a white, lace push-up bra that does wonders for my boobs, accompanied by a high-waisted, white thong.
“You wore that to camp?” Samson grits out, incredulous.
“I bought it for her,” Hunter mumbles.
A twig snaps outside the tent, and the adrenaline that courses through me, the way my heart pounds against my ribs, just adds to the intensity of the game. The dim light exaggerates our shadows, so that each movement causes the light in the large tent to flicker. I swallow as the only sound I hear is an owl hooting, and the cards flicking against the fabric of the tent floor. Everyone is silent, and I dig my nails into my palms nervously. Each of them still watches me like a hawk—like they want to take turns devouring me whole.
I can’t help but admit to myself that I want them to.
I want all of them.

BLURB

“This world has fallen to sickness and shadow. It has bound my hands and blinded me, picking away at the things I love until even my conscience has slipped off to some forlorn cage within my mind, locked away as a traitor. I once feared the storm inside me. Now I would give anything to have it back.”

To prove the purity of my soul, I sacrificed everything. I lost my magic, my best friend, and tied myself to the five kings of the afterworld in unholy matrimony. Now, every day is torture at their hands. I am their final hope, a perfect weapon to wield in the ultimate war still looming ahead of us. They will push me as far as it takes, no matter what.

Every day, I give a little more of myself away, and they’re snapping up each piece as though they have a right.

Every day, the Darkness takes another victim, picking off people all around me until those of us who fight for light and life are outnumbered in a world we’re no longer sure is our own.

The end is drawing near, but the closer it gets, the more impossible our victory seems.

Even after everything I’ve sacrificed … I fear it won’t be enough.

“You took the Warmaster to bed?”
“Not yet, apparently,” Jostein answered for me. “But she will.”
“How accurate was this dream of yours?” I pressed. “How can you be sure?”
“You dreamt about it?” Sig interrupted again, his face crinkling up, like he didn’t know whether to laugh, or be embarrassed for Jostein.
“Can you describe it?” I asked, making Bjern snort in amusement. “Sorry,” I added. “It’s just a little hard to wrap my head around right now.”
Jostein seemed surprised. “I saw it quite a few times in quite a few different ways, so it must not be that hard to wrap your head around. Which time would you like me to describe?”
Bjern, Sig and Herra all burst out laughing as my mouth dropped fully open and Frey shot a pitying look my way.
“I just need to clarify.” I was half covering my mouth as I spoke, almost like I was trying to force myself to shut up, even as I was compelled to babble on. “You said that I take him to my bed…”
“Yes, I’m referring to sexual intercourse,” he answered the question I couldn’t quite bring myself to form.
“Like full intercourse?” I choked out, as Bjern snorted and Sig seemed to devolve into a fit of laughing.
“Sexual intercourse?” Bjern asked, a huge grin on his face as he shook his head at Jostein, amused by the verbiage.
“He’s talking about a little bit of horizontal refreshment,” Sig supplied, still in the midst of a fit.
“What?” Frey and I both asked at the same time.
“A little bit of slaying the dragon,” Bjern added.
“Joining giblets,” Jostein inserted, like he was contributing to the conversation in some way.
Maybe he was.
I had no idea.
“Going to blindman’s bluff?” Bjern asked, his eyes twitching between me and Frey, asking like he expected us to suddenly understand the term.
“Smuggling a bone?” Sig had a wide grin.
“Onboarding the captain?” Herra joined in, a twinkle in her eye.
“A good old scrogging!” Bjern had completely forgotten his inside voice by this point.
What?” I managed to say around a slightly terrified laugh. “Does that mean?”
“Polishing the spear!” Jostein raised a finger, like he had somehow won this game they were playing. “Or in Ven’s case, basically the entire armoury.”

“Shit,” Jack whispers, glancing at the row of lockers in front of us. “We have company.”
I look up and notice Hunter leaning against a locker, glaring at me.
Something fiery shoots through me at that gaze, and I notice Ash, Ledger, and Samson against the other wall of lockers.
“Let me guess,” I murmur to Jack. “That’s my locker?”
“I told you,” Scarlett hisses. “They’re not going to leave you alone.”
I grind my teeth together and clench my fists. “This is ridiculous,” I whisper. “I’m putting my foot down.”
I stalk over to where Hunter is standing, arms crossed. “Excuse me,” I order, not breaking eye contact. There’s truly nothing kind in his expression, and his jaw ticks ever so slightly. A few people stop to watch us, their expressions stunned.
“You’re excused,” he muses, his face dripping with disdain.
My pulse speeds up, and anger flares through me. “This is my locker.”
He tilts his head, and his eyes flash with amusement for a split second. “Yeah. I thought that was obvious.”
Looking over his shoulder, I see his friends watching me haughtily. Okay, so they truly think of themselves as the rulers here, then? They have the arrogance to match it.
“What do you want, Hunter?” I sigh, crossing my arms.
He chuckles, and the sound is both terrifying and thrilling. He reaches into his back pocket, pulling out a few folded pieces of paper. Handing them to me, he gives me a monstrous smile before I look down and take them. Willing my hands not to shake, I open the paper, and then my heart thumps against my ribs, and a flush works its way up my neck.
Snapping my eyes up to him, I narrow my eyes. “You went through my diary?”
My diary—detailing the inappropriate dream I had about him the other night.
He crosses his arms and shrugs. “If you wanted me so badly, why didn’t you just ask?”
Oh, the nerve…
“You wish,” I growl, getting ready to turn and walk away.
Just as I move, he grabs the hand with the papers and tugs me into his hard body. Leaning down, I feel his breath fan against my forehead.
“Tell me, just how wet did you get for me in that dream of yours?” To my horror, he raises his other hand, a pair of pink, lace undies dangling on one of his fingers.
My mouth goes dry, and my heart wallops against my chest as I close my eyes.
No. No, no, no.
Grabbing my underwear, I twist away from him and turn to walk away. Tears prick at my eyes, but I take a deep breath. I refuse to give them the satisfaction of knowing they got to me.

BLURB

I’ve died several deaths over the years. Each time another piece of my soul destroyed, leaving me emptier than the time before. I came to accept that fact, knowing death—true death—would descend on me sooner rather than later.

I thought I ran away from the devil—the man who’s ruled my life—for the last time, but he found me anyway. Sculpting me once more into the good girl he needs for his bidding. Forcing me to live with strangers to learn their secrets, knowing that they’re evil, like him. But I’ll go willingly to protect the one person I love.

But these men? These so-called demons? I’m not convinced they’re like him at all. If they truly are, it’s only because they were fallen angels forced to serve a devil of their own.

If I’m right, then maybe we can all crawl out of this hell of a life together and live after all.

Now, the only question that remains is: which side is the lesser of two evils?

“What is that?” I ask, still trying to make out what’s ahead of us. It’s a blurred object. He slows down more than he already has with the fierce rain falling, and as we inch closer, I can tell it’s a person walking along the road. “Why the fuck is someone walking that close to the road at night in this weather?”
“I don’t know,” he muses. The closer we get, the smaller the figure seems rather than larger. The closer we get, I can tell it’s a girl walking. She’s barely covered in only a T-shirt. No pants. No shoes.
“Pull over,” I tell him, and as soon as he slows enough, I jump out to run to the girl. “Hey!” I call out, but she just keeps stumbling ahead, not looking back, like she can’t hear me. Maybe she can’t through the loud storm roaring around us. “Hey! Are you okay?” I try again but nothing.
I swallow down everything inside telling me to leave her alone as I get closer to her. With each step I take toward her, the more I see. Blood dripping down her legs. And even though her shirt is soaked, I can tell it’s stained red.
Tentatively, I reach out to put a hand on her shoulder. “Hey, you alright?” I ask again.
She stops, and I nearly walk into her. Slowly, her head turns to look back at me. To where my hand is touching her. She looks lost. Frozen. Unaware and zoned the fuck out. It’s eerie seeing someone with a dead look like that in their eyes. Her face looks like she was beaten to a pulp with a swollen cheek, busted lip and black eye that’s almost completely shut. Her teeth chatter from the cold of the rain, and I wonder where she came from and what the hell happened to her.
But then I think that I can’t care. It’s not my business, and I should turn around and get back into the car with Dominic.
Except I can’t.
There’s something in her dead eyes that is pulling me in, and I feel a need to protect her. Because she isn’t dead. She’s fighting to live.

BLURB

“This world has fallen to sickness and shadow. It has bound my hands and blinded me, picking away at the things I love until even my conscience has slipped off to some forlorn cage within my mind, locked away as a traitor. I once feared the storm inside me. Now I would give anything to have it back.”

To prove the purity of my soul, I sacrificed everything. I lost my magic, my best friend, and tied myself to the five kings of the afterworld in unholy matrimony. Now, every day is torture at their hands. I am their final hope, a perfect weapon to wield in the ultimate war still looming ahead of us. They will push me as far as it takes, no matter what.

Every day, I give a little more of myself away, and they’re snapping up each piece as though they have a right.

Every day, the Darkness takes another victim, picking off people all around me until those of us who fight for light and life are outnumbered in a world we’re no longer sure is our own.

The end is drawing near, but the closer it gets, the more impossible our victory seems.

Even after everything I’ve sacrificed … I fear it won’t be enough.

SERIES TRAILER



EXCERPT

“You took the Warmaster to bed?”
“Not yet, apparently,” Jostein answered for me. “But she will.”
“How accurate was this dream of yours?” I pressed. “How can you be sure?”
“You dreamt about it?” Sig interrupted again, his face crinkling up, like he didn’t know whether to laugh, or be embarrassed for Jostein.
“Can you describe it?” I asked, making Bjern snort in amusement. “Sorry,” I added. “It’s just a little hard to wrap my head around right now.”
Jostein seemed surprised. “I saw it quite a few times in quite a few different ways, so it must not be that hard to wrap your head around. Which time would you like me to describe?”
Bjern, Sig and Herra all burst out laughing as my mouth dropped fully open and Frey shot a pitying look my way.
“I just need to clarify.” I was half covering my mouth as I spoke, almost like I was trying to force myself to shut up, even as I was compelled to babble on. “You said that I take him to my bed…”
“Yes, I’m referring to sexual intercourse,” he answered the question I couldn’t quite bring myself to form.
“Like full intercourse?” I choked out, as Bjern snorted and Sig seemed to devolve into a fit of laughing.
“Sexual intercourse?” Bjern asked, a huge grin on his face as he shook his head at Jostein, amused by the verbiage.
“He’s talking about a little bit of horizontal refreshment,” Sig supplied, still in the midst of a fit.
“What?” Frey and I both asked at the same time.
“A little bit of slaying the dragon,” Bjern added.
“Joining giblets,” Jostein inserted, like he was contributing to the conversation in some way.
Maybe he was.
I had no idea.
“Going to blindman’s bluff?” Bjern asked, his eyes twitching between me and Frey, asking like he expected us to suddenly understand the term.
“Smuggling a bone?” Sig had a wide grin.
“Onboarding the captain?” Herra joined in, a twinkle in her eye.
“A good old scrogging!” Bjern had completely forgotten his inside voice by this point.
What?” I managed to say around a slightly terrified laugh. “Does that mean?”
“Polishing the spear!” Jostein raised a finger, like he had somehow won this game they were playing. “Or in Ven’s case, basically the entire armoury.”
