Screen Shot 2015-04-15 at 6.44.12 AMBlurb: How far can seduction take you?

The answers unfold in Ruby Ink, the first Clairmont series novel. Aaron Clairmont has been granted an early parole.

He returns home to Nickel Springs and finds employment at Abstract Enchantment, a trendy new inn. But Aaron’s mind can’t let go of its predecessor, the vintage Rose Arch Inn, the setting for his passionate love affair with Ruby Vasquez.

Ruby—the girl he lost after his secret underworld life unraveled, shocking everyone who thought they knew him. Freedom comes fast at Aaron—a family desperate to reconnect, an employer cast as his savior, and the steamy memories he can’t escape. Just as Aaron surrenders to starting anew, he realizes the diabolical trap he’s been lured into—a fresh hell that makes prison look like a country club. Lives are at stake, his family and Ruby’s. Ruby Vasquez—the woman Aaron never thought he’d see again. The one destined to collide with his future.

REVIEW “A sultry, tantalizing story… intensely emotional and full of heart. L. J. Wilson is a discovery.” –Shannon McKenna, New York Times bestselling author

Excerpt:

Once Michaela and I dressed, we headed out into the cold October day with sweats and hoodies on. Neither of us were in the mood for a fashion show as we were on a rescue mission. I drove as we made our way to Wilmington, a mere twenty minute drive felt like forever given the situation.

As we pulled up to Edwin’s building, I called Nicolette to make this as quick as possible. I didn’t really want Edwin to know I was picking her up, despite the fact she probably had already told him. As her phone rang, I spotted her in front of the building in a brown faux leather jacket, denim jeans, and thigh high boots. Her fire red hair blew in the October wind, as she was facing away from us when we arrived. She waved excitedly as we approached, her face covered with a scarf and sunglasses.

Michaela unlocked the backdoor of my Mazda as she scurried and hopped in. Before pulling off, I looked at her.

“Take the shades off,” I commanded.
“I rather not,” she insisted.
Michaela, being who she is, snatched them off her face.
If we were cartoon characters, our eyes would’ve dropped to the floor.
Professional boxers don’t get busted in the face this badly.
Nicolette’s left eye was swollen shut, and the bruise spread from the bridge of her nose to

her left temple.
“You need to go to a doctor,” I said, putting the car in gear. I pulled off and headed back

to the university. I figured the school health center would suffice, as they would just assess her, give her an ice pack, and she could go on about her business by catching a DART bus afterwards. No fuss, no muss.

“Irene, please don’t take me to a doctor. They will, like, ask all kinds of, like, embarrassing questions,” she pleaded.

“Dude, do you, like, see your, like, face?” Michaela asked in a mimicking manner. She had far less patience than me when it came to certain matters. “We’re taking you, so shut up.”

The ride back was quiet. My mind swarmed with questions about the kind of person Edwin really was, and the person I had him made up to be in my mind. I was disappointed in myself for being so trusting but realized now that I had just been betrayed by him. Anger was brewing deep below the surface. As we approached, Nicolette’s phone rang. I suspected it was

Edwin and demanded her to hand me her phone. It was indeed him, and I answered as we sat in the health center parking lot.

“What?” I asked.
“Why are you answering her phone?” he asked.
“Why are you beating up on her like you’ve lost your mind?”
“I told you I didn’t do that,” he lied.
“Stop it, you bastard! Don’t lie to me! You been lying to me for a year now! Just stop

already! What the hell, Edwin?”
My tone stunned Edwin, as he became quiet. It clearly stunned Michaela and Nicolette as

well, as I could see them both jump from my peripheral vision.
He sighed heavily on the phone. “Look, I met her the summer before you got to UD. We

messed around a bit. Didn’t want nothing serious, but she wanted something serious. I thought I could balance being with both of you, but lately I noticed you pulling away. I didn’t want to lose you over her, so I told her to lie and say we were just childhood friends. She said she would lie if it meant she got to stay with me. It’s just been out of hand. I flipped when she told me that she told you something happened between us, because I thought that meant you wouldn’t be in my life anymore.”

He sounded sincere for once. Unfortunately for him too little, too late—more particularly because I despised what he was being honest about. I hung up.

“Nicolette?” I asked her as I handed her the phone back, still not turning my attention from the open space in front of me.

“Yes?” she asked nervously.
“You’ve been talking to Edwin since last year?”
“Yes,” she admitted in a low whisper.
“And lied to me about all of this with you and him just being friends?”
“Yes,” she admitted again, her voice cracking through tears.
“And took advantage of my good -natured attempt to help you?”
“Irene, I’m sorry,” she pleaded, tears streaming from her face.
“Get out of my car.”
With that, she slowly opened the door and slinked out like the loathsome snake she was.

It’s funny how time changes things. Twelve hours ago, I thought I owed it to her as a woman to

another woman to keep her out of harm’s way. Now, twelve hours later, I’m realizing she is no different than Edwin, and this is why they were made for each other.

Michaela looked at the cold, stern, heartless expression on my face as I kept my eyes forward as Nicolette closed the car door. My expression never changed. I revved the engine as I put the car in reverse to back out of the parking space. I left her at the health center and sped off.
