It's been the butterfly effect.

Because now... I'm becoming a weapon.

Author Bio

NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER OF UGLY AND MISTRUST
**Write something worth reading**

I'm Margaret and I'm a self-published author.
Recently I was fortunate in obtaining New York Times best selling status on my YA/NA book - Ugly, and my YA book - Mistrust.

My last three books have been YA and I'm completely in love with the genre. I love being able to communicate with people through my words and stories.

My writing genres all differ, but the one thing I keep consistent is my heroines. All my female lead characters are strong, gutsy and not the 'perfect' woman. While my books all have romantic elements in them, they aren't just about the romance. They're about finding strength, acceptance and making life long connections.

I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I have while writing them.

Bound By Stephie Walls




Title: Bound
Series: Bound Duet #1
Author: Stephie Walls
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 19, 2017



Blurb

I want to prove my worth, show them what I have. 
I may be flawed; we all are.
But I'm smart, driven, and ready to take on the world. 
No one needs to know the rest.

I wasn't counting on him, couldn't imagine someone like him coming into my life.
The blue eyes, the chiseled body, the man I can't resist.
Truthfully, I have no plans of ever resisting him. 

He has the carefree, playboy life he wants,
The one he created and refuses to give up.
But he didn't count on me waltzing in and changing everything.

Gray can't deny his passion for me—all parts of me,
Even the truth I try to bury—the flaws he knows I'm hiding.
And trust me, he's imperfect too.

But sometimes, we need more than love—more than we can give.

March Madness

March really is a month of madness for me!!! I haven't gotten a chance to actually read a book or even think about a review. I have been noticing some things in the author world. One author whom is known for her African-American stories and celebrating black love has started writing IR. Don't get me wrong I love when authors step outside of their comfort zone and are successful. True growth is when we are constantly evolving. But while this author has branched out I noticed her core fan based has been left out. And the stories that are AA are lack-luster. My thing is if your heart isn't in it don't do it. Don't get upset when readers who are paying a nice chunk of change for your books speak out on the fact that you don't even bother to edit any longer. So my question is when do authors stop trying to please readers and do what they love? Because at this rate this author is alienating her core fan base with this lack-luster work just to say hey I haven't forgot about you. Is it about the money or just wanting to please folks?

Next thing I noticed is that when Kindle Unlimited came out it was a lot of authors outraged some who took to their FB and stated that they wouldn't ever participate in the program and it hurts Indie Authors But oh wait now majority of your stuff is on K.U.? I have always been told, "never say what you won't do." And that's all I am going to say about that. Oh the shade! 

While I am on my hiatus what has everyone been reading? I am looking for a good series on the off chance I actually get to pick up something. And while March is known for a lot of things; The Ides of March, Basketball, Reading Month the list could go on But I would like to say:

Conquered By Ally Fleming


Synopsis;

Gun Ranch Owner Berrill ‘Bear’ Clayton is an accomplished beauty encased in steel. Her toughness isn’t an act, but it isn’t ‘all her’ either. She distances herself from love and intimacy, clinging to the Alpha Girl persona she believes enables her to forget the times she was too weak to save the people she loved. 

For Pope Apostolou, meeting the fiercely independent Bear was a necessary soother for raw emotions stoked by the return of an old threat. Pope believes that threat now has Bear in its cross-hairs. It breaks his heart to discover she’s quietly torturing herself for a horrific night 6 years earlier-one that left 10 men dead-slaughtered after a night of debauchery…and betrayal.

In order to triumph over this new threat, Pope will need to show Bear that she can trust him. Unfortunately, Bear has learned to equate trust with surrender-something she refuses to give to any man. Pope would indeed want her surrender when her heart becomes the one thing he wants to conquer.

Conquered is a standalone BWWM Suspense Thriller. For an enhanced reading experience, add “Intoxicated” to your collection. These titles contain scenes of intense violence, language and sexual situations. Intended for mature readers.

Chasing Hearts By Yahrah St John

Day 13 in the February Celebration of Love features Author Yahrah St John 




Synopsis: 

Renowned petroleum geologist Bree Hart’s blood, sweat, and tears have put her sexist father Duke Hart’s Dallas firm, Hart Enterprises, on the international map. So when he brazenly appoints her cousin Caleb Hart, a former bull rider with little relevant work experience, to lead HE, Bree walks. She takes a job with real leadership responsibility at Wells Oil, one of Hart Enterprises’s competitors . . . and the real drama begins.

Bree thinks she’s landed the position because of her top-notch skills, but billionaire oil tycoon Grayson Wells’s motives are not noble. Grayson believes Duke Hart swindled his father out of his oil field and fortune, leaving him, his dying mother, and autistic brother mired in poverty for decades. Now, years after winning a lucrative oil field in a high-stakes poker game in Dubai, the dashing con artist Grayson is back in Dallas to steal Duke’s kingdom and get his family justice—and he plans to use Bree to achieve his ends. 

But Grayson hasn’t counted on Bree’s beauty, boldness, caring nature, and intellectual fire to stoke a flaming sexual desire in him that he can’t quell. Problem is, Bree’s battling her own wild attraction to her impeccably groomed, brawny stud of a boss. For Grayson, the stakes are high: In bringing Duke Hart down, he’ll hurt Bree. His heart wants him to be with her, but his brain knows better. 

Will Grayson stay focused on destroying Duke? Will Bree get steamy thoughts of Grayson off her mind and stay focused on the high-responsibility job she was born to do? Or will the lure of amazing sex—and possibly real love—derail their plans?
Will these two stop Chasing Hearts?

Ante Up By Christina Jones

Happy Valentine's Day!!! If you are with someone or just a single like me its always a reason to celebrate love. I am taking time for some self-care and loosing myself in a good book and a nice dinner. Day 9 in the February Celebration of Love features Ante Up by Christina Jones, Readers I absolutely love this author. She celebrates Black Love and her stories are always captivating. 


Synopsis:

I know exactly why it turns you on…because you’re messed up too.
Asha’s life is no fairytale, by any stretch of the imagination. There was no kind, generous father to care for and protect her from the Vegas that exists beyond the glitz and glamour of The Strip. No wise, doting mother to look over and guide her, passing down essential lessons and leading her to the right path. And certainly no Prince Charming just around the corner, ready to rescue her from working late nights to cover steadily mounting bills.


But she’s alive. Overwhelmed with responsibility she never asked for, carrying secrets and scars that haunt her, and singularly focused on an uncertain path to escape, but… alive.
You’re not born to sharks without becoming one yourself.


In Vegas, King is exactly what his name implies. Born into money and influence, but respected – and feared – in his own right. The privileges of wealth have afforded him many things: freedom, power, massive eligibility – while simultaneously leaving him exposed to others: betrayal, exploitation, and manipulation.


But he learned. The tolls of duplicity, wrath, and vengeance have taught him to be more mindful, more shrewd, to keep himself clear of the vulnerability of certain situations, certain business deals, certain places, and certain women.


Women like Asha.
Like attracts like…


Her poker face has kept her alive all this time, and he keeps his cards close to his chest. Neither is interested in gambling their hearts, but when they can’t stay away from each other, there’s only one choice… ante up.
