COVER REVEAL: Indivisible Line by Lorenz Font

Pre-med student Sarah Jones is back in Beaver, Alaska, for summer vacation.  A loyal member of the Gwich’in tribe, she accepts the rules set by her father, the leader of their small town. Raised in a strict household, she learned early on to do what is expected of her and has agreed to an arranged marriage. Despite her reluctance to marry without love, Sarah is unwilling to defy her father’s wishes. She hopes to help usher in an era of independence and stability for the town, but for now, her focus is finishing med school so she can become Beaver’s resident doctor.

Business owner Greg Andrews wants to escape his philandering wife and his life in general. Leaving New York City to join a hunting expedition in Alaska, Greg’s plans are turned upside down when he is shot on Gwich’in land and ends up on Sarah’s operating table. In the absence of a qualified doctor, Sarah must operate to save his life. She refuses to wait for the consent of their tribal leader, and her father banishes her from the tribal land in punishment.

Grateful for his life, Greg concocts a scheme to help. Plagued by the side effects of her unconventional operation, he convinces Sarah to become his live-in nurse. Without the means to support herself, Sarah agrees to the questionable arrangement, but she soon finds herself in even more trouble. Her new problem is that she is falling in love with this infuriating man, and the choices she now must make are must more difficult than the simple act of saving a man’s life.

Together, Sarah and Greg must both decide whether they can overcome the vast differences between them, or if the indivisible line that separates their worlds will ultimately pull them apart.

By Sapphire Kande
Genre: BDSM Erotica

 ON SALE July 16, 2013

Watch the trailer video HERE

Celyse hides her secret fantasies because good girls don’t long for the kink she dreams about. When her subconscious cravings continue to cause sleepless nights, she takes the biggest step of her life and seeks out a local BDSM club. She’s horrified and enthralled, but too prudish to admit this is the life her mind and body desire. She’s not like these people, or is she?

The club’s owner has seen her response before and gives Celyse a folded piece of paper with an address, a date, and time. She finds herself knocking…

Damon waits on the other side of the door. Dominant, arrogant, and lonely—he’s looking for the perfect submissive to cater to his desires and share the lifestyle he relishes.

Is Celyse the one? Is Damon the missing puzzle piece that will allow Celyse to release her inhibitions and embrace her kinky side? Or will tragedy keep Damon from Claiming Celyse?

Deleted Scene:
Out on the Boat 
Savannah, Mya, Zak & Jacob

Mya and I bring the cooler of waters, beers and twisted teas, down to the beach. Jacob and Zak are already on Kayden’s boat getting it ready to go. We had a quick lunch at Yamato’s Sushi and Steak House. Now we are ready for some fun in the sun. 

Kayden is working all day and Braxton is out of town for the Houston Texans playoff game this week. So Mya and I are grateful to have Jacob and Zak around to keep us entertained. Walking along the dock, we make our way to Kayden’s speed boat. Which is usually down at his beach house, but since we wanted to use it he brought it to my dock. 

“Let me take that cooler and Zak will help you ladies onto the boat.” Jacob says motioning for us to hand him the cooler full of drinks. Taking Zak’s hand I hop down into the boat, with Mya hopping in right behind me. Since Zak is driving, he’ll be the only sober one on the boat I toss him a bottle of water. I grabbed a twisted tea and take a seat at the back of the boat. Mya and Jacob both grabbed a bud light lime and joined me. 

“We got lucky! Today is gorgeous!” Excitement pouring from my voice. 

“Are we just going to cruise around or you boys going to try and catch something?” Mya asks looking from Zak to Jacob. 

Firing up the boat, Zak sits in the driver’s seat looking like a kid in a candy store. Turning the swivel seat to face us, he replied “Well since it’s too cold for tubing or water skiing, we can cruise around, head down by the pier and back. If you ladies don’t mind, we’ll try to catch ourselves some dinner!” 

Bouncing up onto my knees, I take a sip of my drink, and smile back at Zak. “Sounds like a plan…just try not to catch Jaws. Last thing we need is to end up on the National Geographic Channel, for Shark Week. As they retell the story of an entire boat of people being attacked by a shark they caught!” 

I can’t help but laugh at Mya’s look of complete and utter terror. “We’re not really going to catch a shark right? You’re joking? Because if not, I don’t want to chance it, we can just drive around!” She lets out a nervous laugh, gazing around at us all. Simultaneously we all burst out laughing. 

We ended up spending the next two hours riding around on the boat, telling crazy stories about shark encounters we saw on TV, just enjoying each other’s company. Doing absolutely nothing, turned out to be one of the funniest days I’ve had since moving here. Jacob and Zak did fish, but thankfully, they did not caught any sharks.
