FORSAKEN HEART by Author Elise Whyles

About the Book:
Punished for sins not her own, can a mortal claim her vampire mate?

The world of immortals must unite to save both themselves and the mortals they co-exist with from an ancient evil.

For Bede MacTaggert this means trusting in the warrior sent for her sister—a man of mystery, of power, and one who could easily sweep her into a world she's destined to be part of.

An imperial guard to the king of vampires, Gawain has always tuned out the needs of the flesh. Dedicating himself to the service of the royals, he's lived on the fringes of his people for centuries. Now he's forced from the shadows and into the arms of a woman who will awaken his heart and body to a passion unequaled.

Read an Excerpt:

Bede gasped at the touch of his hand. Her eyes widened, and the fire coursing through her veins throbbed to life. Heavy, full, her breasts ached beneath the fabric of her dress. She could feel a hollow throb between her legs, a hunger building. Her eyes darted to his, and she recognized the feelings in his gaze. Lust flared, hotter, stronger than any desire to feed any morality. Leaning closer, she trailed a finger down his face, her nail gathering blood.

Slowly, her eyes locked to his, she lifted her bloody nail to her lips and sucked, a moan of pleasure echoing on the night. His eyes darkened, lips curling up to reveal his extended fangs. The pounding of his blood echoed in her head.

“Yes.” Gawain’s guttural reply vibrated through her body.

With a groan, she grabbed the front of his tunic, her lips crashing into his. Clumsy, untutored, her tongue traced over his lips, demanding entrance. When he gasped she took full advantage, her tongue darting past his teeth to duel with his. Scrambling closer, she pressed against him, her hands tangling in his hair, tracing his shoulders, his neck. Again and again she kissed him. Her body on fire, shuddering and moaning with each response from him. Her blood pooling with each caress, each brush of his tongue against hers.

“Gawain, please…” Whimpering, she threw her head back, exposing her throat, desperate for him to sink his teeth into the flesh there. Pressing his head downward, she guided him toward the throbbing pulse of her life’s blood.

“Nay, nay, we cannot.” Gawain licked, suckled, his muted protest at odds with the way his hands palmed her breasts, teasing her nipples into hardened peaks. “Bede, stop. Gods above, stop me…”

“No, take. Drink.” Bede reached up to scratch at her throat. “Take what you need. I am yours.”

Screaming in pleasure, she shook when he sank his teeth deep. Her body trembling, every nerve alive, the pain bordered on pleasure and she writhed against him. “Yes!”

Pressing closer, she licked her lips, her head shifting, resting against his shoulder. Her hand darted down his body, her fingers seeking the waistband of his trews. His fingers, rough and calloused, grabbed hers as she palmed his hardened cock.

“Nooo, let me.” She whimpered, her eyes rolling back in her head as darkness swam within her vision. Each pull on her throat echoed in her womb, and she hovered on the brink. Clinging to him, she pressed closer, tighter, the need to share beyond any control she had.

Stars exploded behind her eyelids as he lapped at the blood oozing from the wound. Already she could feel her body hovering, waiting on the precipice. She flew apart when his fingers touched her bare skin, the nails scoring the insides of her thighs before he cupped her womanhood. Arching her hips into his palm, the friction against her clit shattered her. Screaming out his name, Bede fell into the darkness that hovered around her. Whole, fulfilled for the first time in her life.

My First Breakup

Cover Reveal

About the Book:

“Oh God, why me?”

This is perhaps what we think of when we go through a ‘breakup’.
This story is about Anirudh and Anvi.
Both of them have their own thinking which are not alike.
The story begins with Anirudh meeting with and accident. As he slowly succumbs to the pain, he starts reflecting about his bygone college days where he found his love for music. He loves Anvi dearly who is a long-lost friend of Anirudh.
The story reveals how Anirudh struggles as the hands of reality strikes him down.

Read an Excerpt:

   This is it. One wrong move and I find myself crying to sleep. Days, maybe weeks of putting up the brave face. The ultimate, cliché teenage drama. Everyone has been through it and everyone has heard of it. But for me it was the first time. Maybe the last, hopefully. 
   So, wearing my heart on my sleeves, I fell in ‘love’. Not once, but twice with the same guy in a row. Tramp? No. I was in love. Deeply, madly, unconditionally. Until the hands of practicality punched me right on my face. I was left stranded and confused. Wondering why all of this was happening to me.  Another cliché moment. But for me, it was the first time.
    There is something about human nature which seeks for sympathy. Just had a breakup? The whole world is conspiring for you to be unhappy. No, I will not smile, the world is a cruel place. It takes days for people to get over it. For me? Well no surprise to you, it took a year. One entire year of  ‘the wait’. Sitting back now and thinking about it, I find it funny. No, I find it hilarious. So, what happened after the year was over? Did I just miraculously wake up one day and think to myself that, “hey, you know what…. you are a great girl, get over it…move on!!” No, I realized that he had thought of this way back. He had moved on way back. While, the “so-in-love” me, was waiting. Simply waiting for my stars to turn and relive the same love story again. 
  The moment you see that your ex has a different face beside the “in a relationship” status, that is the moment you realize how blind and ridiculous you were. The once cute goatee seems like a bush now, that smile which made you smile makes you want to knock off all his teeth, his fascination for food makes you notice his peeking belly pouch. In a nutshell, you are no longer in love with him and his flaws. So then, life brings you to a fork road. The fun road is where you sit back and spread wild rumors about how terrible he is and how he broke your heart. Believe me, the devil will tempt you to follow this path. It is a fantastic journey, but a few more months of futility. So I chose the better path. Get up, pull yourself together, shrug off the dust and embrace the new journey. I am glad I chose the latter. Very glad.
  What do you do when an entire part of your life has been erased which once held so much of importance to you? You try and fill it up with things you never had time for otherwise. Socialize, go out, write, sing, laugh, read, stare randomly out of the window and get lost in your own beautiful world. Life was better. I am an ardent believer in unconventionality. Why follow the crowd? I won’t make my own crowd! No siree! I won’t even sit at a distance and laugh at the crowd. I would rather live in a parallel world, a different dimension maybe. I can see you. But you can’t touch me. You can’t judge me. I can be me. Shamelessly.
Raise the walls high. Build the impenetrable walls. Shut the gates. It’s my own perfect world. A year goes by in my world. Everything is healed.
I decide to open up the windows a little bit. A little fresh air will cause no harm. I felt a whiff. A new breeze. That felt nice. It felt familiar. Maybe I can open up my windows just a wee bit more. I will shut them off immediately. They are wide open now. Even today. I never shut them. I was never able to.
   Vulnerable or strong? Please be vulnerable, please be vulnerable……… pleaded my heart. Shut up already. You have created enough chaos. I am in charge now. No more “Fairytale dreams”, no more car rides, no more falling for flattering messages, no more being silly in love.
Do you have a tiny voice at the back of your head which speaks back to you and gives life advice, for god’s sake? Well mine is louder than my own voice, has a humongous ego and can be downright obnoxious sometimes. It’s difficult living with it seriously. You know the worst part? It is usually right.

‘ I love you’. Nope, no you don’t. I could die for you. No you can’t. ‘I have waited my whole life for you’. Were you born yesterday? ‘I just want to be with you’. Yeah, you want to be in my pants. The voice is annoying I tell you, but it is always right. If I was anything like the voice then I doubt whether I would have had any friends.

I am an author, speaker, and radio show host with a fanatical obsession with the Lord, Star Trek, K-dramas, anime, romance books, old movies, speculative fiction, and knitting. An off and on addict to Mountain Dew and marshmallows who writes to fill the void the sugar left behind.
About The Book
Gargi Kapoor is the only one convinced her brother, Dev, is innocent of the crime he was convicted of. When he is sent to the hospital with an unexplained paralyzing disease she finds herself having to lean on the last person she'd ever want to depend on -- a man who wants her brother to pay for stealing his mother's life savings.
Leon Reckley is extremely satisfied to find the man who ripped his mother off suffering from an unknown disease that leaves him paralyzed and in need of rehabilitation therapeutic services. He's even happier when he is given the opportunity to be the therapist that makes him fit enough to return to prison to finish his sentence. No one will work harder to make sure Dev Kapoor serves every minute of his prison sentence.
Gargi never dreamed the man who has utter contempt for her brother would be the man she slowly begins to trust. Leon never thought he'd be convinced Dev might be innocent, let alone be drawn to his enemy's little sister. Together, will they find the truth? Or when Leon's job is over, will it simply be time to say goodbye?

10 things about the characters in your book.

In my book, Time to Say Goodbye, cultures, guilt, and innocence clash in this tale of enemies to sweethearts. My focus when I write romance is to include a multicultural aspect or an interracial/inter-ethnic couple among the romance.

Creating the characters for Time to Say Goodbye was a fun exercise. The reason why is because they were not of my ethnic background. Gargi, the hero, is an Indian woman and Leon comes from the background of growing up in a trailer park.

The best part is learning about both of these characters through my friends! I made sure to acknowledge them in the beginning of the book and for that, I’m thankful.

So Ten things about my characters.

10. Gargi Kapoor’s beauty, as I see it, came from a brief work acquaintance I had with an Indian woman from South Indian when I was working.  She had dark skin, very dramatic features, and dark hair and eyebrows. I remember staring at her, mesmerized by her beauty. Everything about her was so exotic and different. I tried to incorporate that when Leon meets her from a man’s perspective.
9. Leon Reckley was a truck driver in the first draft, not a physical therapist. Time to Say Goodbye went through two drafts. At first, Leon was going to meet Gargi while at a toll booth on the way back home. He would see her and Devansh being escorted by the agents at the toll booth in Texas and his eyes would meet her. I decided to change that when I began to research other elements of the stor.
8. Some of my characters are named after people I know with the exception of Gargi. Leon is named after someone who was a friend of my sisters (although he’s nothing like Leon Reckley). Shruti is the cousin of my hubby’s best friend who is Naveen. Naveen is my hubby’s best friend.   Ajit is a longtime friend of the family. Elizabeth Chalker is a dear friend as well.
7. Gargi’s lifestyle as an Indian girl growing up in an American setting is one I have seen reflected in many minorities. The traditional values of the Indian culture she was born into clashes with the mindset of her Western influence. Throughout the story, Gargi’s father Ajit tries to set up her with ‘good Indian men’ as potential husbands. Yet, Gargi is not interested in that. One of the women who helped me with the story made a point of how her children would not accept their parents in finding a match for them. They were more interested in love matches than arranged marriages. This pull of old and young, West and East, family tradition vs. individual pursuits is one that has always fascinated me.
6. In the first draft of the story, Gargi and Dev were not brother and sister. In fact, Gargi and Dev were engaged to each other. Dev’s original role was to be the cruel, future husband while Gargi would be the sacrificial bride. But I figured that’s been done already a few times. We’ve all heard that story before, right?
5. Leon and Gargi reside in the real city of a small town here in Michigan called Tawas. It is situated on a body of water called Lake Huron. It has a lighthouse with a picturesque view. I decided to have Tawas featured in these stories due to the fact I had so much information from my co-workers who grew up there. There’s always something to do and it has a real feel small town community
4. I try to capture my love for Indian food in the book. The first time I bit into a samosa, I had pretty much the same reaction Leon had to it. Most of Leon’s enjoyment of a samosa is from my own. Try it with the cool tang of mint chutney – to die for!
3. The character of Elizabeth Chalker is based of the real person I know as Elizabeth Chalker. She is sweet as pie but is very sick due to a condition she has called Lyme Disease. I met her through here book called Hanging on by the Scratch Marks My Nails Left Behind. After this, I interviewed her and we became friends. Due to her condition, her lifestyle is limited so what I’ve done is that I’ve used her in these two books of the Michigan Sweet romance series. In the first book, she’s a police office. In this book, she’s a doctor. What will she be next?
2. Leon’s best friend Krause is a truck driver in the story. He’s based off a person I know who is a truck driver and is a great supporter of my work though. How could I NOT put him in the book.
1. Gargi and Leon are so far my favorite couple I’ve had the pleasure of working with.
