Meant for Me 

Excerpt 1: Meant for Me


As soon as I got off the elevator I saw him. Dressed in an expensive gray suit and a watch that had to cost more than my truck, he sat there in sheer confidence or most likely it was arrogance. Smug bastard.


When he spotted me walking toward him, he got to his feet and grinned. “Well, well, look at you. How does it feel to know you beat a Heavyweight champion?”


“It feels pretty damn good other than the pain I know I’m going to feel in the morning,” I replied. “Were you there? I didn’t see you.”


He motioned toward the seat opposite him. “Of course, I was there. You left with the others before I had a chance to get to you. Please, have a seat,” he offered politely. “Does Claire know you’re down here?”

I sat down and said, “Yes, she knows I’m down here, but she doesn’t know I’m with you. Which means I don’t have too long before she starts getting curious.”


“Why didn’t you tell her?” he asked, gazing curiously at me.


Nonchalantly, I shrugged and lounged back in the chair, playing it coolly. “There are some things I want her knowing and some I don’t. I didn’t think this was one of those things I’d want her involved in.”


“Good call,” Erick agreed. “So I’m assuming you’re still interested in what I have to offer?”


“You’re damn right I am. Just tell me what to do.”


Erick leaned forward in his chair and lowered his voice. “I’m going to warn you this isn’t for the faint of heart. From what I’ve seen of your fights in the past and of your reputation I don’t think that’s the issue here.”


“What’s the issue then?” I remarked impatiently. I wish he would get to the fucking point already.


“My issue is this,” Erick began, “I need to know how far you would go to win. How far would you go to earn say … five million dollars?”


“Five million dollars?” I exclaimed, eyes going wide. Leaning forward in my chair, I glanced around the room quickly and lowered my voice. “You’re shitting me, right?”


That was a lot of money just for a fight.


“No, I’m not shitting you, Mason. So again, the question is … how far would you go to earn it? Would you steal for it?”


Now we were getting somewhere. “Yes,” I answered, settling back in the chair.


Erick moved closer. “Would you lie for it?”


“Yes.”


“Would you break your opponent’s arm for it?”


I smiled. “Gladly.”


“What if the price upped to ten million? What would you do then? If you knew you could get away with murder, would you kill for it? Let’s say, take for instance, Chase Benfield. After he basically attacked Claire and was about to do who knew what with her, would you have had the guts to follow through?”


My smile vanished and the thought of Chase with his hands on Claire made my blood boil. I wanted to kill him that night; I wanted to rip his head off with my bare hands so I’d never have to see that smirk on his face ever again. Not only would I have done it for her, but for every other female he’d probably terrorized and most likely raped over the years. I knew what Erick’s game was, but even I couldn’t deny the truth in my answer. I would kill anyone that ever tried to hurt Claire in that way.


“I would do more than kill him,” I answered through clenched teeth. “I would make him suffer ungodly amounts of pain before I did him and everyone around a huge favor of wiping his miserable fucking existence off this planet.”


Excerpt 2: Meant for Me

The door to the arena room was open, and the moment we stepped in Claire gasped and I stared, wide-eyed at all the people. "Holy shit," I breathed in awe. "It's packed."
Every single chair around the cage was occupied and there were people standing around everywhere. There were two guys already in the cage battling it out, except they looked to be part of the Lightweight division. When I fought several years ago, I was competing for the Heavyweight title. If they did fights in order of division then I would be going up there last."Hey, guys," Tyler exclaimed, carrying a beer in his hands.
Disapprovingly, I glared at the beer and then back up to him. "You should know better than to get drunk before a fight. It makes you sloppy," I scolded him.
I really didn't care either way what he did, but I knew better than to drink when I had to compete. Tyler chugged his beer and threw his cup in the trash a little too roughly.
"I do know better than to drink when I have to fight, but unfortunately, I'm not fighting tonight," he announced.
"Wait, what?" Claire cut in. "What do you mean you're not fighting? If you're not the one fighting Mason then who is?"
Tyler glanced around the room with narrowed eyes until he found the person I was to fight and pointed to him. "That's the guy over there with the blue mohawk. I think you might know him. He said he owed you for something you did a long time ago. Care to explain," Tyler inquired curiously.
Following the direction of Ty's pointed finger, I groaned when I saw the guy with the blue mohawk.Fuck, I knew who he was, or better yet, I knew his wife ... very well. 
"What is it Mason?" Claire asked worriedly. "Who is he?"
His name was Chase Benfield and I did the unthinkable by fucking his wife. Blowing out a frustrated breath, I lowered my head and began to explain, "Do you remember when I mentioned I had a dark past?"
"Yeah," she said, drawling out the word. "Let me guess, you fought him back in the day?"
I nodded. "Yes, but that wasn't just it." I didn't want to tell her what I did because I was ashamed of the way I acted and the way I did things. I was sure she would understand, hopefully, but I didn't want her thinking less of me.
Claire let go of my hand and crossed her arms over her chest defiantly. "Dammit, just tell me already. You did this same shit to me when I was keeping something from you."
"Fine," I gave in, "but I need you to know it was a long time ago and it was before I even met you. I was stupid and did lots of stupid things that I shouldn't have."
She rolled her eyes. "Let me guess, you slept with his girlfriend," she guessed blandly.
Sighing, I regretfully nodded my head and waited for the angry words to come spewing out of her mouth. Instead, she said, "So, what's the big deal? You slept with her. That shit happens all the time. Why would he be angry about that still?"
"Well," I began, "it was actually his wife and I hooked up with her in my prepping room during his fight for a spot at the Heavyweight title. His trainer had come looking for her and found us. Needless to say, word got back to Chase awfully fast."
Claire groaned and hung her head. "Oh, hell, this isn't going to be good."
Chase finally spotted me from across the room and snarled his lip. No, I thought to myself, 
this definitely wasn't going to be good.

The Land of the Fae is strong with all four courts banded as one, but yet, uncertainty still remains as they all work together to end the dark sorcerer's evil reign. Sorcha, the one and only Winter Court princess, has a secret, a secret that she has enjoyed keeping for the past six months, but when a much awaited announcement brings her to the Spring Court, and face to face with the man in her dreams, will she be strong enough to keep up the fa├žade of her icy exterior, or will she melt into his arms like she does in her dreams? After formally meeting Sorcha at the Winter Ball, Drake, Summer Court prince and army leader, knew there was a fiery passion underneath her winter skin, a passion he wanted desperately to ignite with his own, but with her frigid responses towards him he's decided to keep his distance, except how can he when his dreams feel real. Seeing her again only ignites his interest, and this time he's not going to let his arrogance or her frosty heart stand in his way. Through unexpected tragedy, Sorcha discovers the one thing the dark sorcerer has spent his whole existence trying to protect, but what makes it more difficult is that only one of the Four is strong enough to retrieve it. The tides have now changed, and with Drake's help, will Sorcha find what she's searching for, or will the dark sorcerer beat them to it, shattering all hope of finding out the one thing that could save the Land of the Fae ... how to destroy him.




Two courts to four is what needs to be ... to save the land so shall we see. The scroll has been found and now the fae know how to defeat the dark sorcerer, to end his evil existence in the Land of the Fae. However, the only thing standing in the way is the one bond that must be formed; the one that will empower all four courts together and make them invincible. Ariella and Brayden's bond will not come easily, for Ariella is mischievous and head-strong with a heart of love, while Brayden is strong and loyal with a heart of ice. What do you do when the fate of your land rests upon your shoulders and the bond you must form to save it? How are you supposed to do that when the one man to help you fulfill the prophecy is the one man who doesn't believe in love? With all four princesses bound together as one, will they be strong enough to save the life of Ariella who is destined to be the one who ends it, the one who will sacrifice everything to save the people she loves. In this final installment of the Forever Fae series you will see how the bonds of love and all the sacrifices it takes to truly conquer the evil once and for all.
