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.

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.

Gareth Bedford knows two things; someone is trying to kill Amelia and someone is embezzling company funds. Gareth does all he can to protect Amelia from her enemies., but doing so places him in the crosshairs.

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.

Serefina Gellar has idolized Geneva from afar. When she gets the opportunity to meet Geneva, Serefina realizes she wants to be Geneva and will do anything to achieve that goal.

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.

 

While their love blooms, bodies are stacking up and only Swift Time can put a stop to it. With his wrestling career and new relationship hanging in the balance, can he protect Abigail while tracking down the relentless murderer?

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.

VIP’s Revenge #MFRWhooks

Coming October 27, 2022.

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

Mr. VIP pushed his glasses more firmly on his nose and surveyed the two unconscious men on the floor of the makeshift prison. Th e shapes were blurred, so Mr. VIP stepped closer to the bars. His vision improved and he could see the men more clearly. One had shoulder-length sandy brown hair, with half of the strands obscuring the man’s face. The other man, black and bald, was sprawled on his back, with stained, dried blood on the collar of his shirt.

These two men, Joshua Hastings and Avery Cheathams, respectively, caused him serious trouble, trouble which had cost him his opportunity to destroy two of the most influential blind women in the community. Perhaps without these two men mucking up his plans, Mr. VIP could finally get rid of the baker and the lawyer.

“If we kill them now, we don’t need to worry about someone guarding them,” a snide, masculine voice said.

Mr. VIP barely spared the man a glance. “Isn’t he,” VIP indicated the sandy-haired man, “the reason why you’re in jail?”

“Well, yes.”

******

The only way her family had agreed to her running the business was to have an assistant. The fact she could manage every aspect of the bakery without sight was beyond her parents’ comfort level. It didn’t matter she’d spent most of her life in the kitchen before she finally lost her sight at 15; all that mattered was proving to her parents and herself she could maintain the profitability of their legacy. Hiring Avery was part of the compromise—and the best decision of her life. Somehow, with his self-assuredness and open mind, he made her days and nights normal.

But it wasn’t a normal day at the bakery because Avery wasn’t there. Penelope paused as emotion clogged her throat. She breathed deep to keep her emotions in check.
Where could he be? Is he lying in a ditch somewhere, dead or dying?
