Synopsis

Nikki. 

The past is called the past for a reason. Two years, four months, and three days ago, I walked away from my life to save myself. I’ve moved on, but never forward. I don’t want to look back; all I want is my sister and to get the hell out of Archer’s Creek – but he won’t let me. Always there, he refuses to let my secrets stay hidden. He’s not my type: old, opinionated, and dangerous – I hate him. Except when he touches me; then I don’t hate him at all.

Excerpt 



I kiss her full lips, my tongue teasing the seam of her lips, begging for permission to deepen it. As soon as she grants me what I want, my tongue thrusts into her mouth. Our lips move together, speaking words we can’t hear with our own ears but can feel in the depth of our souls.  
Mackenzie shifts to straddle me and moans. “I can feel you against my underwear.”
My hands reach under her dress and grips her ass. Her skin is cool against my hands, but the sensation burns me. I rock her into me and she moans again.
“Fuck, Hunter.” Her voice is gruff.
“I love hearin’ you like this. I fuckin’ missed it,” I drawl. Her tiny thong does nothing to stop her from feeling my dick in my jeans. “Bet you’re wet.” She whimpers when I move one hand around and run a finger against her soaked underwear.
“Fuck, babe. Don’t think we’ll have time for much foreplay. I want to feel you wrapped around me, squeezing around me.”
Mackenzie moans again, words gone from her mouth. I move my hand into her panties and feel her against my skin. She’s wet and ready, but I’m gonna make her feel real good first.
I rub my thumb against her clit, and she tenses. “Relax,” I say into her ear.
I continue to please her as she moves above me, her lips on mine in a desperate call for more. When she tenses around my fingers and her breath is labored, I stop and look at her.
“I love you so damn much. I hope you believe me when I say there ain’t no one else for me.”
“For me, either.” She reaches for my jeans, unbuckling my belt and pants, I kick my boots off, followed by my jeans. Mackenzie slips out of her underwear, keeping her own boots on.
“I want you under me,” I lean her back on the blankets, cover her body with mine. I slip into her, slow and steady, and under a blanket of stars I make love to the only woman who has ever had a place in my heart and life.


*Copyright 2018, Fabiola Francisco


Tara's 5***** Review

“I drink too much beer and call out her name in my dark apartment, sitting on the floor with my guitar lying next to me after writing a song about what could have been, what was, or what is.”

Love can brighten your life. But losing that love can make your world dark, and lonely.

“It’s hard to swallow that truth. It’s difficult to believe it when it felt so real, so consuming.  It was the only way I could ever move forward—convince myself that what we had in our young adult life would never survive the stress and changes of our adult lives.”

Hunter and Mackenzie had it all. Young love, hope and dreams. One night filled with harsh words and bad decisions took that away from them. Moving forward is one thing, but trying to rekindle what once was will be the challenge of a lifetime.

“We both have things to say and forgive, but my love for her runs deeper than the river we used to skip rocks on when we’d sit by that watermill for hours. And I know hers does, too, even if she says we weren’t meant to make it.”


Fabiola continues to amaze me. From the Rebel Desire series, to Memories of Us, her love stories are filled with so much heart and soul. Each of her characters are so easy to fall in love with, and Hunter and Mackenzie are no different. These two MC’s flow so well together, and fit together like a puzzle. From their love to their heartache, Fabiola leaves no emotional stone unturned in Memories of Us.

Even if that meant losing Lilac forever.

Tara's 5 star review

True, long lasting love is very rare, but so is Lilac. She is so rare, you often wondering if you’re dreaming when you see her. Toby Hunter is the one boy that ever really saw Lilac’s magic. He worshipped her head to toe, inside and out. Tony waited for Lilac, and when the time came, Lilac waited for him.

“I gave him an escape and a way out of his misery. I gave him my love, my body, my heart. I gave him happiness. He told me so. He kissed it to me as I broke through his pain.”

A Girl Like Lilac is the definition of an epic love story. Victoria captured true love in this book. From the butterflies in the beginning, to the hardships, to the unforgettable moments, A Girl Like Lilac will leave you breathless. With every word, every touch, and every tear, you will be swept away into Toby and Lilac’s world.

“I dropped my head to his bare chest and listened to his frantic heartbeat. It made my smile ache. I loved hearing the way I made his body sing. Me. Just a girl with a big heart, big dreams, and big desires.”

Victoria’s writing ability is like a piece of art. Each sentence flows beautifully with the next, and before you know it, you cannot put her books down. The way she sets each scene and portrays each emotions will have you applauding. Victoria L. James is undoubtably one of the best authors I have read, and A Girl Like Lilac will be the best romance book of the summer!

“I couldn’t be mad at them for anything. I was mad at myself for being so weak and fragile when I needed to stand up and be the warrior princess who would slay all the dragons for her prince who was trapped in the castle.”

Behind The Scenes Excerpt

After pacing until her legs felt like they'd give out, Alexis closed the door behind her and settled into the most comfortable spot in the house—her new office chair. Plush and comfy, it practically swallowed her up in its softness, just what she needed to feel safe again. She still felt trapped in her own home, but at least in that dark blue chair, she could pretend that her life hadn't become a series of tiny rooms connected by dark hallways.
She began reading a script her agent Melanie had told her about weeks ago and had finally been delivered to her the day before she left LA. Titled Haunted By Love, it told the story of a woman who was being haunted by her dead husband, who everyone believed she killed. Alexis had only gotten a third of the way into the story, but she already hated it with a white hot passion.
All the parts she got offered were the same. All the characters felt delicate and frail, like at any moment in the film someone could come up behind them and say boo and they'd crumble into a thousand terrified pieces.
She wanted to play strong women. Kickass women. Characters who could stand on their own and brave whatever the big, bad world threw at them. Instead, the woman she sat reading sounded far too much like herself lately.
Terrorized and afraid to leave her house.
Pitching the script onto the floor, she brought her knees up to her chest and closed her eyes. This was how she'd spend the rest of the day. Curled up in a ball and pretending the world outside didn't exist.
A knock on her office door ruined that plan not five minutes later, though. Why couldn't they just leave her alone?
She leaned back on the arm of the chair and yelled in the direction of the door, "I'm busy. Whatever it is, talk to Lauren!"
As she watched in horror, the door opened against her explicit instructions and Paul walked in with a man Alexis had never seen before. Smiling, her manager showed the man off like he'd just created him in a lab or something.
"Alexis, this is Hunter McKary. He's the man we talked about earlier today. He just arrived, so I wanted to introduce the two of you."
Her gaze traveled from Paul to this Hunter person and then down the full length of his body, from head to toe. Her first impression was he looked like a cop. Or someone who could play a cop in the movies. He had short brown hair a little too much like that ex of hers, but his face had a rugged look she liked in men. This Hunter certainly didn't have a pretty boy appearance so many of her co-stars had lately.
He didn't smile, which unnerved her. There he stood in her home and he couldn't even crack a tiny smile on their introduction? That seemed rude. He was probably one of those stereotypical overly serious bodyguard types she'd never liked.
She did like how that rugged look made him appear tough, so maybe she could tolerate the sour puss thing he had going on. For once, though, she wished the men who came into her life didn't look like stone cut outs of real men.
As that drifted through her mind, her gaze slid down to his body again. He looked hard there too, like he could protect someone. Well, if his job was going to be doing just that for her, he fit the bill.
"Alexis, did you hear me?" Paul asked, tearing her out of her thoughts about Hunter.
She stood up and extended her hand to shake his hand. "It's nice to meet you, Hunter. How long have you been a bodyguard?"
He shook her hand for a moment and then pulled his away abruptly. "I'm not a bodyguard. I spent time as an LAPD detective, and now I work for Project Artemis as a specialist helping people who need protection. A bodyguard is what the world will think I am, but trust me. I'm far more than just a mere bodyguard."
She stood shocked at how terse he'd been. Unnecessarily terse considering she'd been more than polite with him. 
Cocky men were top on her list of things she didn't want to deal with in life, so she needed him to understand she wouldn't be treated rudely like that, no matter how much Paul thought of his boss.
"Well, if you're anything like the cops in LA now, I don't see what you could possibly do for me. They haven't been able to find out the identity of my stalker for months, and I've had to move clear across the country because they couldn't do their jobs."
Hunter remained stone-faced as she spoke, and when she finished, he said nothing to her. Not a single word. Instead, he turned toward Paul and said, "I need to know the layout of this whole place. Anywhere someone can get in, I want to know about it."
Then he walked out, leaving her standing there feeling insulted and wondering what made this guy think he could pull that cocky shit on her. How dare he ignore her like that! He worked for her. Who did he think he was?
  Paul remained behind, smiling as if things had gone swimmingly. God, did he ever not think everything was just fine?
Pointing at the door Hunter had just walked through when he left so rudely, she asked, "And you think that person is going to be the one who helps me get my life back?"
He looked away and nodded. "Well, he isn't exactly the chattiest guy in the world, but I trust Persephone. If she thinks he can help, I say give him a chance."
"Says the man who promised me that moving cross country to this awful place would solve my problems. I'm guessing this Persephone finds his Cro-Magnon routine perfectly acceptable, but I don't. If you think I'm going to take being treated like that in my own home by some for-hire security guard, you can forget it. Tell him to go find a job at the mall because I'm not having it!"
Alexis sat back down on her comfy chair and folded her arms across her chest as steam practically shot out the top of her head she was so furious at Paul for bringing that man to her home. She wouldn't be treated like some insignificant thing who didn't even deserve an answer by any man, least of all some stranger in her own home.
"Lexi, just listen to me. Give him a chance. I promise you Persephone wouldn't have sent him if she didn't think he could help. Just give him a week. If you don't like him by that time, then he's gone. Promise me you'll give him at least that long, though?"
The look on Paul's face told her he was worried, and he had good reason to be. She'd had enough of men pushing her around for an entire lifetime. She wouldn't be taking this Hunter guy's shit not one more time.
"The problem isn't with me, so you're wasting your breath talking to me, Paul. The problem is with him. He's rude to the person he's supposed to be helping and in her own house, no less. If he can't change his attitude, then he'll have to leave and not after a week. Now. So you have a choice. You can continue to stand here and stare at me with that terrified look in your eyes, or you can go find your friend's guy and explain to him how things go here at Casa Alexis. Whatever you do, shut the door on your way out and tell Lauren I want to see her."
He scurried away, knowing full well she meant every word she'd said. She didn't make hollow threats. Not to men who cheated on her and then thought she'd merely stand idly by when they stepped out with other women, and certainly not about a man she'd just met and already didn't like enough to want him thrown out into the street on his ear.
Reaching down, she picked up the script for Haunted By Love off the floor and flipped to the last page she'd read. After only a few lines, it became apparent trying to focus on anything would be a complete waste of time, so she threw the script across the room in frustration. It knocked over a lamp, which crashed to the floor and smashed into a million pieces.
This day just got better and better.
Her head began to pound from a stress headache as a result of Hunter McKary and his rudeness. She didn't want to play a victim in any more films or in her own life either anymore. Even more, she didn't want to be someone the Hunters of the world thought they could ignore so easily and never pay a price.
She heard a light tap on the door she recognized as Lauren's signature knock and called out, "Come in!"
Her best friend and assistant peeked her head around the door and smiled. "Paul said you wanted to see me?"
Alexis nodded and waved her in. "Yes. I need to see a friendly face after meeting that odious man."
Lauren closed the door and came over to sit down on the floor in front of her. With her usual sweetness, she touched her hand and smiled. "It didn't go so well? He looked very handsome, at least."
Handsome didn't matter if the man had the manners of a pig.
"Nothing special, if you ask me. I've dated much better looking men, so whatever he thinks he's got going on, it isn't much."
"What made him so odious?" Lauren asked innocently.
Alexis opened her mouth to explain what happened, but nothing came out. She was so furious. The man had actually made her speechless.
Finally, she said, "I don't want to talk about it now. Just take my word for it. He won't be here long if he doesn't realize who's the boss here."
"It's your home, Alexis. Paul needs to understand that if you don't want someone in it, they need to go. I think he's forgotten that lately."
She smiled down at Lauren. "Thank you for reminding me. This is why you're irreplaceable, you know that? Everyone else could go away, but as long as I have you to rely on, I know I'll be okay."
"You can rely on me. Always. Never forget that."
Alexis closed her eyes and took a deep breath in. At least she had one person she could trust in the world.
