About the Book

Beyond Love Lies Deceit

Revenge:
the action of inflicting hurt or harm on someone for an injury
or wrong suffered at their hands.

Revenge is not the answer. There is no peace in vengeance.
These are the things my mother taught me as a child.
I must learn to forgive and through that forgiveness will find the means to let go.
I used to believe she was right.
I used to believe a lot of things…
That was before the careless acts of one person ripped my entire family apart.

I swore one day he would pay.
One day he would understand what it felt like to lose everything.
One day…
And now, that time has finally come.

But just when I think I understand the rules, the game changes…

I wasn’t looking for love in my pursuit of revenge.
It was the last thing I expected or even wanted for that matter.
But it happened just the same.

Now I’m trapped.
Trapped within the lies I have created.
Trapped in a game that I’m not sure I can win.

I thought I knew the players.
I was wrong…

Now my very life hangs in the balance and there’s only one person that can help me.
But first he has to learn the truth about who I really am…

My name is Samantha Cole and this is my story…

Synopsis

Book One in the Two Hearts Series.

Grace Morgan is just like any other new college graduate. Driven, head strong and full of life, or so that’s what she lets everyone think. But Grace is not the girl everyone believes her to be and she hasn’t been for years.

After losing her high school sweetheart in a tragic cliff diving accident her junior year of high school, Grace becomes a shadow of her former self. She hides behind her fake smile and her carefree attitude, not allowing even her closest friends and family to see the broken girl she has become. Crippled by loss and heartache, she doesn’t believe in love anymore, not in the way a normal twenty-two year old girl should.

But all of that is about to change…..

Zayne Evans is the one man that holds the power to bring Grace to her knees. Her older brother’s best friend, a successful entrepreneur and a known womanizer, Zayne may be beautiful and charming as hell, but he also has bad news written all over him. But that doesn’t stop Grace from wondering what it would be like to spend just one night with a man like Zayne. A man who is just as good as she is at hiding the real person beneath the mask.

What starts out as a rocky week vacation at her families Lake House, turns into the beginning of something neither of them is prepared for. After an intense week under the same roof, Grace is determined to walk away and never seen Zayne again. But fate has a different plan…..

Zayne is the one person that can see through Grace’s façade. Grace is the one woman who is not blinded by Zayne’s looks, money, or his untouchable persona. They challenge each other in a way that neither has been challenged before.

But what happens when the one person you know you need to resist is the only person that makes you feel alive? And what would you sacrifice to feel that way always?

excerpt

“You just gonna hide out here all day baby girl?” Alec’s smooth voice fills my ears just moments later, startling me. I shoot my head up and pin my eyes on my oldest brother. He smiles at me lovingly and takes a couple more steps down the dock until he is standing just feet from where I am laying.

“If it means avoiding Ian’s taunting for a few minutes longer, then yes.” I say, smiling widely at him. He nods, knowing full well what I mean and closes the distance between us. He sits down next to me, his long legs stretched out in front of him.

I pull my sunglasses down onto the bridge of my nose and peer up at him. While Ian made it out to my graduation with mom, I have not seen Alec in almost a year. Even still, time has not changed him. He looks almost exactly as I remembered him. Rumpled brown hair that hangs across his forehead, his large toned frame dressed in tan cargo shorts and a white t-shirt. He crosses his muscled arms in front of his broad chest and meets my gaze.

“How are you Grace?” He asks. “I mean really.” He adds, knowing full well that I will tell him everything is wonderful no matter what is going on with my life. Even with that knowledge, he still pushes for the truth. Unlike Ian, Alec has always had a way of reading me, even if he doesn’t admit it.

While Ian is my cute, playful, snowboard loving, free spirited, artist of a brother. Alec is the more serious one. While I like to think that I know him well, like me, I know that he never truly lets people in. But he is my protector. The one who stepped into my father’s shoes even though he was already away at college when dad passed. Being ten years older than me, he has always been very protective of me and that fact increased one hundred fold when he became the eldest man in the family.

“I’m good.” I finally answer, sighing loudly and resting my chin on hand. “How’s New York?” I ask. While the main reason I am moving there is for Emma, it doesn’t hurt that my oldest brother also resides there and will give me some sense of home in the craziness that is New York. “How’s the business?” I tack on, referring to the software development company that he started a few years back with his college roommate. While he doesn’t brag, I know that they have managed to be very successful. Creating and selling various apps for smart phones and other devices.

“It’s good.” He says, being completely modest by how well he has done for himself. I mean, I don’t know what kind of money a business like that brings in but from the way mom describes his downtown penthouse, I would say he makes more than he would ever need.

“Sorry I couldn’t make it out to see you graduate. Hell, I barely got away to come here for the week.” He shrugs. “We both know mom would have killed me.” I can only nod my head in agreement, knowing full well that my mother would have been heartbroken had he not been able to make the trip. None of us has missed a year yet.

“No worries. It wasn’t that big of a deal. Besides, my part lasted a whopping thirty seconds. The rest of the time you would have had to sit there and listen to them call out hundreds of names and I can only imagine how dreadfully boring that would have been for you.”

“It would have been worth it baby girl. You’re a college graduate now. That’s something to be very proud of.” He says, smiling down at me.

I shrug. “Yeah I guess. I’m just glad it’s over honestly. I mean, it was a great experience and all but I am ready to start living my life. College was just a necessary step. I need publishing houses to take me seriously, having an English major is the first step in achieving that.”

“Hey Alec.” A man’s voice I don’t recognize interrupts us. I twist my head to the side and instantly my mouth falls open. Holy hell. Zayne Evans. My brothers college roommate and best friend has always been a looker but I certainly was not prepared to lay my eyes upon the sex god that is now hovering just feet from where my inappropriately covered body is laying. “Your mom and Rob are here.” He says casually, his eyes finding mine for a fraction of a second before turning back to Alec.

“Thanks man.” Alec says, pushing himself to his feet. “Come on baby girl.” He says, holding his hands out to me. I push up on my knees, doing my best to make sure all areas are covered before taking his hands and letting him help me to my feet.

I turn, feeling ridiculously awkward and very self conscious, to face Zayne. The moment my eyes find him again, I have to mentally force myself not to drool. I haven’t seen him since he came home for Thanksgiving with Alec my senior year of high school. Even then he was something to admire but I was just a kid then. Now, words can’t even describe the man before me.

He’s tall, at least six feet or so. His shoulders are broad and his tight fitted gray t-shirt clings to every perfectly defined muscle across his chest and stomach. When my eyes finally make it to his face, I falter. Oh my god, this man is beyond gorgeous. How do I not remember him being so beautiful? Piercing blue eyes with lashes so thick that the shade is only that much more intense. His dark hair is short and messy and has what Emma would call ‘the just fucked look’. Instantly I am envisioning running my hands through his hair, pulling his body flush with mine and kissing him hard. I take a shaky inhale and try to gather my barrings. I have not thought about a man in that way since Kyle and the thought is more than a little unsettling.

“Zayne right?” The question sounds stupid but considering it’s been five years, it doesn’t seem completely ridiculous.

“Good to see you again Grace.” He nods, his smooth voice dripping with seduction. His eyes rake over my nearly naked torso and then back to my face before he quickly turns back to Alec. The action causing my insides to bubble.

“I’ll see you up there.” He says, quickly turning and making his way back up the steps, two at a time. I can’t help but watch him. The way his back flexes with each step, his massive calve muscles clenching with the movement.

Addison Grant thought she had life all figured out. Attend college, land the job of her dreams, and marry her high school sweetheart. Everything seemed to be falling into place, or at least that’s what she thought.

Having moved from Vermont to Las Vegas with her boyfriend Grayson, the last thing Addison expected was to come home one day to find all of her belongings packed up in boxes and her eight year relationship over.

Heartbroken and lost, Addison finds herself, for the first time, unsure of what the future holds. But a chance meeting with a gorgeous bartender sets her on a path she never expected.

When Addison lands a major project at work, she unknowingly sets herself up to discover that Liam is not who he says he is. When Addison learns the truth will she be able to forgive the lies or will she be forced to walk away from the one man who has consumed her entire existence?

excerpt

I wake the next morning with a start. Memories of the night before come flooding back like a tidal wave. My day with Liam, The Eiffel Tower, the way he kissed me before we parted as if he was fearful he would never see me again. It’s all so much to take in and yet I want it and so very much more.

I take my time getting ready for the day. With no real plans, I shower and dress in a pair of Kristina’s yoga paints and a pale pink t-shirt. I make my way to the kitchen to grab a bite to eat and am surprised to find Kristina already awake. Her tall, lean frame pressed against the kitchen counter, a cup of coffee in her hands.

“Well good morning.” She chimes, when she sees me enter.

“Don’t good morning me.” I snap out playfully. “Thanks to you I had to spend my entire Saturday with the man of my dreams.” I smile widely at the last part.

She catches it immediately, a squeal coming for her lips as she sits her coffee mug on the counter and skips happily to where I am standing just three feet away. “I knew it, I knew it!” She sings, pulling me in for hug. “So you had fun then?” She asks, dropping her hold of me.

“Fun doesn’t even begin to describe it.” I say, the smile on my face growing wider.

“Oh no, you didn’t?” She fakes mockery. “You slept with him? You did, didn’t you?”

“If you mean had the most intense, passionate sex of my life on top of The Eiffel Tower, then yes, yes I did.” I joke, watching her eyes widen with my confession.

“The Eiffel Tower? How in the hell did you manage that?” She gasps in complete jealousy.

“Not really sure. Someone Liam knows. They let us up after it was closed. Oh Kristina, it was like a fairy tale.” I say dreamily, for a moment losing myself to the memory.

“Let’s go grab some breakfast. We have no food and I want to hear every dirty detail.” She laughs, dumping her coffee into the sink and grabbing her purse. I follow, slipping on my tennis shoes before we exit.

I spend the rest of the morning tucked away in a little family diner called Mimi’s Cafe filling Kristina in on everything that took place yesterday. She was so excited for me she could barely contain herself and I have to admit it felt really good to have a girlfriend to share these kinds of things with.

By the time we exit, it’s late morning. The sun is scorching and I immediately wish I had gone with shorts instead of pants. Kristina and I say our goodbyes as she has plans to go shopping with her mom and I make my way back to our apartment, determined to spend the day lounging in front of the television.

As I make my way back, my phone signals an incoming call. I scramble to remove it from my purse. An unknown number displays across the screen and I immediately answer it in hopes that maybe it’s Liam.

“Addison, it’s Grayson. Don’t hang up.” Is what I hear instead. I breathe out a sigh of aggravation but for some unknown reason, I don’t end the call.

“What do you want?” I snap, not trying to make friendly talk at all.

“Look, I know that you are really angry with me. I feel awful about everything. Can we meet up somewhere for coffee or something? I really need to see you.” His voice is soft and pleading, something far from the normal Grayson that I am used to.

“I’m sorry Grayson, I really don’t think that’s such a great idea.” I answer immediately.

“Please Addie, just one cup of coffee.” He pleads.

“I can’t today, maybe another time.” I do my best to pacify him.

“Monday? Come on Addie. Please.”

“Fine, Monday.” I agree, really just wanting to end this conversation. I don’t care what he wants, I just want him to leave me the hell alone.

“Great, I will meet you in the lobby at noon.” His voice takes on a more chipper approach. “I can’t wait to see you.” He adds in a more serious tone.

“See you then.” I say indifferently before ending the call.

Leave it to Grayson to put a damper on my perfectly peaceful morning. Not really feeling up to going home all of a sudden, I continue walking with no real destination just simply losing myself in my mind.

It is hard to keep up with how quickly everything has changed but I don’t regret a single moment of it. When Grayson ended things, I thought my world had ended. Now, I see it really is only just beginning. I have Liam to thank for that. Not to mention, some pretty awesome friends.

My phone starts ringing again just as I reach the bike trails where I used to spend almost everyday running. I make my way to a bench off to the side and retrieve my phone from my purse just as the ringing stops.

The missed call message shows it was my mom. Realizing it has been over a week since we last spoke, I click the number to call her back. She answers on the first ring. “I was beginning to think you had disowned us.” She lashes at me, not harshly but enough to get her point across.

“I know mom, I’m sorry. Things have been so busy. How are you? How’s dad?” I ask.

“Everything is good. Dad is spending a lot of time in the garage again. He bought himself a new toy to fix up. It’s the biggest piece of junk yet.” She whines, clearly not understanding my dad’s constant need to buy old cars and rebuild them, something he has done since I was young. I used to love sitting out in the garage with him, handing him tools and listening to old Johnny Cash songs. Those are some of my fondest childhood memories and the thought of him back at it again makes me wish that I could be there with him.

“Cut him some slack mom. You know how much he loves it.” I remind her. “How is everything else, anything new?”

“Well that’s actually why I am calling. Aunt Kelly is coming in next week and was really hoping to get the chance to see you. You really do need to visit. We miss you like crazy dear and with Grayson out of the picture, there should be no reason not to.”

“I wish I could mom but I have work. I am extremely busy with a big charity event that’s in a couple of weeks. It’s really not possible for me to take time off right now.” I say, apologetic.

“Kelly is going to be so disappointed.” She lays the guilt trip on me.

“I know mom. Will it make you feel better if I promise to come visit you the weekend after the event? I can fly out on Saturday morning and stay a couple of days.”

“That would be amazing honey. Your dad will be thrilled.” She says, the excitement clear in her voice. I really do need to get out to visit them and it probably isn’t a bad idea to get away for a few days.

I promise to let her know as soon as my flight arrangements are made and by the end of our conversation she is perfectly happy. I make an excuse about needing to get some housework done and quickly wrap up the phone call.

After hanging up, I stare down at my phone for a few seconds, lost in my own mind. I don’t know if I should be worried or relieved that Liam has not tried to contact me yet today. Regardless, I can’t help but feel more than a little disappointed. I mean it was after all, the best night of my life.

“Penny for your thoughts?” Liam’s voice breaks me from my haze. I look up, sure that him standing there, a wide smile across his face, is a figment of my imagination. “Care to join me? It’s a beautiful day for a walk.” He says, holding his hand out to me.

I take it without hesitation and let him pull me to my feet. I twine my fingers with his, loving the feeling of his skin against mine. I want to question him on how he found me, how he always seem to know where I am. But in this moment, I don’t care. I just want to enjoy being here with him. As great as this all seems, I still have the nagging feeling that I better enjoy this while I can because it’s only a matter of time before it all comes crashing down. Nothing this good ever turns out to be true.
