VIP's Revenge (VIBE a Steamy Romance Book 6) by [Lynn Chantale]

Blind does not mean helpless.

Friends Penelope and Amelia have faced challenges their entire lives, but they didn't expect being hunted by a maniac hellbent on ridding the world of successful blind people to be one of them.

The way Mr. VIP sees it, he's waited long enough to seek revenge on those who have wronged him. After breaking out of jail, he hopes to join forces with other like-minded criminals to carry out his plan. But can there truly be honor among killers?

When both Penelope and Amelia's sighted husbands are kidnapped, the women know they are going to have to face off against Mr. VIP and his band of villains. But they refuse to be afraid. They are not easy targets and will not go down without a fight.

Excerpt

“I can see you are very busy.” Footsteps retreated on the tiled floor accompanied by the jangle of keys. “I wanted to warn you.”
Penelope had enough. She extended her cane and walked through the half door separating the case from the main floor, following the sounds of the man’s progress. “Allow me to escort you from the premises.”
The man gasped. “You’re blind? Oh, Christ on crutches. He married a blind woman.” He chuckled before it turned into a loud, boisterous laugh. “Too rich.”
Who is this fool? Penelope wondered. And how does he know Avery? 
“Penelope?” a younger male voice queried.
“Gage.” She tried not to let the relief in her voice show. “Could you escort this gentleman from the premises and make sure he doesn’t come back?”
“I wouldn’t do that if I were you,” the man cautioned.
“You heard the lady.” Gage had steel in his voice. “Please leave before we call the cops. They usually stop in about this time.”
“Very well,” the man said. “You’ve made your choice. Tell Avery I was here. When he comes back.” The chime on the door jingled. “If he comes back,” he said, as laughter mingled with the chimes.
Penelope stood stock-still. Was that the man’s way of telling me he knows what happened to Avery? She stepped forward. Gage caught her.
“Don’t go after him. It’s exactly what he wants.”
“But he may have information about Avery,” she protested. “Why would he say those things to me unless he knew what happened to Avery?”
Gage steered her down the hall. Tile turned to carpet and led her to a consult room.
“Listen to me. I was watching the man’s face. He wanted to goad you into a reaction.”
Penelope held out a hand, her fingers grazed the back of a chair. She sat. “He was with Joshua last night. Did Joshua make it home?”
“No.”
For some reason that gave her some comfort. “So, they could be together.”
“That’s the assumption we’re working with. You have cameras in the shop?”
“Of course.” After all the vandalism and destruction to the shop last year, Penelope thought it more than prudent to update their surveillance system. Where before the cameras only focused on the cash register, the shop now had cameras on every area of the shop.
“Good. I’d like to get a still of the man to Sergeant Falls.”
Penelope stood, stepped forward. The room spun, rushing up to greet her. With a gasp, she crumpled to the ground.


 

VIBE Steamy Romance Series

Valentine’s is always a busy time of year for PB and J Bakery.

With love fueling the need for sweet confections, there’s always room for romance. Even the anonymous gifts left for Penelope, by a secret admirer, are a welcome distraction from the chaos of chocolate and spongecake.

Penelope Bishop has an idea who’s sending the gifts, or at least she hopes it’s her sexy mystery man who stole a kiss on New Year’s Eve. The trouble is, she’s never seen him. Her only clues are dancing skills, a great pair of lips, and a sensual voice that haunts her dreams and every waking fantasy. All that pales when her assistant, Avery, inspires those same lustful thoughts.

Avery has loved Penelope from afar, but with her recent breakup, he doubts she’ll view him beyond the current role he has in her life...seeing eye person. He has one chance to woo a woman who defines her world through touch, scent, sound, and taste--think outside the dating box. When an old flame comes courting and makes Penelope an offer she just may accept, Avery has one last opportunity to make her his Valentine...he’ll have to bare all.


 

When one is blind trust is important, but who can you trust when someone is trying to kill you? 

Wealthy, blind and grieving, Amelia Hastings-Bedford would gladly give away her fortune if it would bring back her beloved, Joshua. Knowing her money can’t, she forges into a marriage of convenience with Gareth, family friend and law partner.

When a family member’s action creates tragic consequences only one thing can save Amelia. Joshua.


 

Geneva Martin enjoys photography and has earned quite a reputation for her prints. Armed with an ordinary smartphone, Geneva captures the world around her. What’s amazing is she can’t see.

Geneva doesn’t realize she now has a stalker. However, after taking a random photo, Geneva also becomes a killer’s target.

Stalker. Killer. It’s just a matter of time before one of them gets to her first.


 

There’s a crazed killer on the loose and part-time pro wrestler/full-time private investigator Swift Time fears this case just might be his last.

 

Luckily this PI has an advantage in the ring and when it comes to tracking down fugitives: he's got a touch of ESP and he's not afraid to use it. Swift Time has no problem utilizing his unique skill to find a missing person, solve a murder, or bring in the bad guy but when it comes to his affection for successful bar owner Abigal Alexander, his power is useless.

Excerpt

A hand touched Penelope, and she stopped.
“Right behind you,” Becky said.
Penelope stepped forward and set the boxes on top of the display case. She pasted what she hoped was a pleasant smile on her face. “Who is here to see me?”
“Are you the owner?” a pleasant male voice asked.
“I am.” She turned toward the voice. “What are you selling? You sound a little too old for the Boy Scouts’ popcorn.”
The man chuckled. “You’ve a good sense of humor. I can see why he likes you.”
The first fingers of apprehension tickle her spine. She tucked her hand in her front apron pocket and closed her fingers around her collapsible cane. If all else failed, she did have a weapon at the ready. “To whom are you referring?”
“Oh, I’m sorry. Avery and I go way back. I just thought I’d drop in and see how he’s doing.” Something metallic clinked on the case. He must have placed his hands on the top. “This is a really nice place you have here.”
“Yes, it is,” she agreed.
“It would be a shame if something happened to it,” he continued conversationally.
Penelope stiffened. “The last person who threatened me ended up in jail.”
He chuckled. “Oh no, you misunderstood me.”
“Then clarify,” she said coldly.

“Eyes wide with fear” #MFRWhooks

For the first time in a long time, Randa Arnold is happy beyond measure. She has the love of her husband, Linc and her paramour Matteo. After the fulfillment of a mutual sex fantasy and an unbelievable night of passion her world is turned upside down.

 

Lincoln never expected his wife to fall in love with another man, even though he knew that was a possibility. He loves his wife, but just can't wrap his mind around her emotionally attached to someone else, so he does the only thing he can, he forces Matteo to leave.

 

Forcing Matteo to leave has some unexpected consequences. Randa is despondent, yet keeps a brave face. This only intensifies Linc's sense of guilt. If that weren't enough, someone is threatening his wife. His only chance at redemption and to get to the bottom of the threat is to bring Matteo back. Only one problem, the man can't be found.

Excerpt

Lincoln drummed his fingers on the scarred wood table of the booth. Whatever Selena had to say, she would say it tonight. He lifted the tan ceramic mug of coffee to his lips and sipped the now lukewarm brew.

The bell above the diner door jangled, and Lincoln focused his attention on the newcomer. Average height, dark-brown skin almost the color of soot, and rust-colored hair. She could’ve been beautiful, but too much smoking and partying had hardened her features. The woman was thick and curvy, with full lips and brown eyes. In another time and place, desire would’ve flooded him. Now he felt nothing.

What he ever saw in Selena other than a piece of ass, he couldn’t say. He remembered what it was—he’d been lonely. Randa had been extremely hurt over learning he’d been unfaithful and her subsequent miscarriage. So that left Selena.

Selena was the live-in health aide who had assisted his wife after her surgery nearly six years ago. Since he couldn’t be the one to provide his wife comfort and companionship, he turned to Selena, who was more than happy to fill the void.

She offered him a tight smile as she approached. He didn’t return the gesture.

“What did you need to see me about?” he asked once she sat. The server approached, and he waved the waitress away.

“I don’t even get a hello?” Selena batted her lashes at him.

“Or a glass of water. Now what was so important you couldn’t tell me in a text?”

She huffed, slouched in her seat, and reached in her pants pocket and placed a crumpled piece of paper on the table. “I thought the news would be better in person.”

Lincoln scooted to the edge of the seat, ready to leave. He didn’t have time to play games with her, not after the wonderful afternoon he’d spent with his wife and the evening he still had planned.

“No. Wait. Please.” The desperation and plea held him more than her hand on his wrist. “I’m sorry. You still twist me all in knots, and I can’t have you.”

Lincoln sat. “No, you can’t.”

“Well, here’s a piece of news I know your wife will appreciate. I’m dying.” Tears leaked from the corners of her eyes and rolled down her cheeks. “I swear, I’m telling the truth. I’ve the doctor’s report and everything.” She tapped the paper.

He stared at her, then the page beneath her finger. Surely he hadn’t heard her correctly, but there it was in black and white. Dying? Probably what bothered him most was that he felt nothing. This could be another one of her ploys to work her way back in his life. It wouldn’t be the first time. She’d tried something similar after she realized he wasn’t going to leave Randa for her. Selena went so far as to inject herself with medication that would mimic the symptoms of a chemo patient.

By then, he and Randa were working things out and had come to an agreement to open their marriage, Selena being the first. Her jealousies and undermining Randa’s confidence nearly toppled the tentative bond he and Randa had forged. Randa meant everything to him, and he wasn’t going to let another female destroy what they were building.

Lincoln was so stuck on the first part of Selena’s news he nearly missed the second, more important piece. He focused on her.

“Say that again.”

She sat back with a smug twist of her lips. “I said you have a daughter.”

Anger surged through him. There was no way in hell any of the words she had just spoken were true. He jumped from his seat, tossed some bills on the table, and then jerked her from the booth. Ignoring the stares of the other patrons, Lincoln marched Selena from the diner.

Once they hit the crisp air, heavy with rain, he shoved her against the rough exterior of the building. Eyes wide with fear, she stared up at him. He placed a hand at her throat.

“I’d kill you myself if I thought I could get away with it. Give me one reason why I shouldn’t walk away from you.”

“Because I wanted to hurt you the way you hurt me.” She held up a small envelope, the paper shaking so hard it rattled.

He snatched it from her and stepped away. He ripped it open and pulled out the birth certificate. His name was listed as the father. This still wasn’t enough proof. “And how do I know this is legit and not something you forged?”

She slid down the wall and sat on the asphalt. “You’re the only man I was involved with at that time.” She dropped her head in her hands. “I just need to know my kid will be taken care of after I’m gone.”

Shaking his head, he walked away.

“Please, Lincoln. I have to know.”
