PROLOGUE

Dreamlike state.
Unable to escape.
Whether I am driving in my car or at work, my mind continues to return to my dreamlike world; a place where all fantasies can come true, a place to escape from reality. My reality, unlike most, is unusual. I have a gift, or at least that is what my parents call it. Sometimes I see things before they happen. Oh and I can see someone’s inner thoughts when I touch them. But those aren’t the only reasons I feel the need to escape. It feels like something or someone is missing from my life. In my world, I can be anything and anyone. More importantly, he’s there, my true love… making it hard to focus on reality.

TheAmberVoyeur 500size   


 No longer safe in Brayleigh, Aria and James travel by ship to find refuge and discover what’s left of the world. Dangerous seas and pirates lurking are only the start of their troubles. Forced off the boat with nothing but the clothes on their back, the crew and passengers make it to a nearby island, only to be abducted by the Knight Tribe, a clan of romantic warriors with a voyeuristic culture and a taste for nightly entertainment. Get swept away in this dystopian erotic adventure, brimming with romance, spankings, and betrayal.  








 

Excerpt

The hum of the engine died, and Aria heard the scream of unfamiliar words in a language she didn't recognize. Shots were fired in every direction forcing her to duck, throwing herself onto the floor of the ship. James lay right beside her, covering Aria with his body, shielding her from danger. She didn't have the courage to ask what happened. The warmth and security Aria felt from James vanished. A man covered in tattoos, his arms a canvas of ink, grabbed James by the arm and dragged him across the room. The second man accompanying him lifted Aria from the floor and escorted her up the stairwell. James walked just a few feet in front. The man dropped his hold on her as the passageway narrowed. A gun pressed into her back, a constant reminder of danger. Aria couldn't fight without risking her life. She hoped these men would steal what goods they came for and then leave. Forced outside, the lifeboats were just a few feet away. The sun began to set, and the sky twinkled like a sapphire without a cloud in the heavens. Even at dusk, beads of sweat trickled against Aria's forehead. Her black shirt stuck to her back, the cargo pants she wore were too hot for this climate. She didn't dare ask where they were; she didn't believe anyone would answer. They were forced against the wall. Would the lifeboats even float anymore? The old luxury cruise liner's paint faded from years of sun exposure. What would it have been like fifty years ago, before the devastation and destruction that their parents created, taking a luxury cruise? She would never know. The Gem Apocalypse had resulted in a war with only survivors, no heroes. "Move!" the man behind Aria said. His gun dug further into her back, and she pushed forward on James's heels. "Down!" They got down onto the ground with the other crew and passengers. Six men towered over them with guns. Aria was unfamiliar with the weapons, as they were larger than the ones the guards carried at the palace. "We'll be okay," James said as he sat beside Aria, reaching for her hand. Aria wanted to ask him how he could know that without a doubt. Hope shrank like a beacon of light fading in the distance. These men were thieves. She could smell the treachery and greed from where she sat. How did they end up here?

Ginger Voight takes us back to where it all began, with an intimate look at one of your favorite book boyfriends—from his perspective.



TEASER/EXCERPT

When I make it home a little over an hour later, I find Aunt Susan asleep in her chair, a book

opened across her lap. My heart fills with love for this woman. She’s the one who gave me the gift of music. There’s only one way to repay her. I have to make myself a huge success so that I can give her the life she deserves. No more waiting on all of us, no more struggling to make ends meet, no more worries that the roof might leak or the plumbing might fail.

I would treat her like a queen. And I knew I would always be her prince.

I kneel down beside her, propped up on my knees as I circle her generous waist with both arms.

I’m holding her tight, my head on top of the book on her lap, when she stirs. “Giovanni,” she murmurs as

she strokes my hair. “Did you just get home?” I nod but say nothing. “Did you have a good time?”

I lift my head to look at her. “The best.”

A tender smile appears on her face. “Good. You deserve it.”

“You deserve more,” I tell her. “And one day, I’m going to give it to you.”

“Oh, Vanni,” she says as she cups my face with that gnarled but gentle hand. “You already did.”

“I mean it,” I assert. “I wouldn’t even know to sing if it hadn’t been for you.”

She chuckles as she pulls me back into her lap to stroke my hair. I cuddle her closer. “You were

born a singer, Giovanni. I just lit the way. If it hadn’t been me, the music would have found you

eventually. That’s how destiny works.”

I squeeze her tightly. God, how I needed to believe that. “Do you really mean that? You’re not

just saying it, right?”

She whacks me softly on the back of my head with an open palm. “You would really accuse me

of lying?”

I shake my head, instantly chagrined.

“Many singers have darkened these doors. They learn all the notes. They can sing perfectly on

pitch. But you, my sweet, sweet boy. You have a gift. When you open your mouth to sing, people stop to

listen. They know you have something to say, something to share. That’s reason enough to share it

whenever you get the chance.”

“Tony and Lori say that I should have a Plan B.”

She plays with my hair for a long moment before she says, “Tony and Lori need a Plan B. Some

people just do. There’s nothing you can do about that.” She tips my chin to look me in the eye. “But this

isn’t their path to walk, Vanni. You have to do what’s right for you. You follow your heart, tesorino. It

will never lead you astray.”

I smile at her. “And you’ll still love me if all I’ll ever be is some low-paid singer in a bar?”

She gathers my face in her hands. “I’ll love you till my dying day and beyond, Vanni. Never

question that.” There are tears in her eyes, so I wouldn’t dare. “I just want you to be happy. If chasing

rainbows makes you happy, chase away. You never know when you might actually catch one.”

I chuckle as I lift up to take her into a warm bear hug. “I’ve already got my pot of gold right

She laughs. “You keep sweet-talking like that and you might just become a star yet.” I know

she’s teasing from the glint in her eye. “Someone has got to make it,” she says, bringing the conversation

back on point. “Might as well be you.”

I nod. “It might make things hard around here for a while. There’s no steady paycheck in chasing

rainbows.”

She shrugs. “We made it before. We’ll make it again. I never want to be the reason you don’t

How could she think such a thing? “You’re the reason I wake up in the morning,” I tell her. Aside

from my mother, Aunt Susan is the truest love of my life. “And if I make it, you’ll be the reason why.”

She grabs my chin in her hand. “When,” she corrects. “If this is what you want, then it’s up to you

to make it happen. I believe in you,” she adds, which fills my heart with joy. Those are about the four best

words anyone can say to another. It proves she loves me best of all. With her on my side, I can’t lose.

Ginger Voight is a screenwriter and bestselling author with over twenty published titles in fiction and nonfiction. She covers everything from travel to politics in nonfiction, as well as romance, paranormal, and dark, “ripped from the headlines” topics like Dirty Little Secrets.
Ginger discovered her love for writing in sixth grade, courtesy of a Halloween assignment. From then on, writing became a place of solace, reflection, and security. This was never more true than when she found herself homeless in L.A. at the age of nineteen. There, she wrote her first novel, longhand on notebook paper, while living out of her car.

In 1995, after she lost her nine-day-old son, she worked through her grief by writing the story that would eventually become The Fullerton Family Saga.
In 2011, she embarked on a new journey–to publish romance novels starring heroines who look more like the average American woman. These “Rubenesque” romances have developed a following thanks to her bestselling Groupie series. Other titles, such as the highly-rated New Adult series, Fierce, tap into the “reality-TV” preoccupation in American entertainment, which gives her contemporary stories a current, pop culture edge.

Known for writing gut-twisting angst, Ginger isn’t afraid to push the envelope with characters who are perfectly imperfect. Whether rich, poor, sweet, selfish, gay, straight, plus-size or svelte, her characters are beautifully flawed and three-dimensional. They populate her lavish fictional landscapes and teach us more about the real world in which we live simply through their interactions with each other. Ginger’s goal with every book is to give the reader a little bit more than they were expecting, told through stories they’ll never forget.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000026_00033]

BEFORE & AFTER BOOK BLURB: 

Rike and Peyton fell in love in college. A boy from the wrong side of the tracks, covered in ink and crooning in a bar is the last person a straight laced girl with a art major should fall for, but his rough edges made her jagged, alive, shaving away the coddled southern princess and revealing a soul wild and brilliant. 

 They fell in love, despite her family and his past and all the reasons why it wouldn't work--and with their best friends, they made a life. Everyone was supposed to live happily ever after. They, more than anyone, knows that life doesn't go according to plan. Rike and Peyton fell in love in college. A boy with a guitar, and a poet's heart, and a girl with freckles dusted over her nose, a perfect fucking fairy tale. 

 But what happens when the fairy tale doesn't fall apart--but is forgotten?

Chapter One:

Prologue: Now 
 It's raining buckets and I don't want to go out in that. I stared at it from under the awning of the club and felt Lindsay sway into me. For a second, we both wobbled and another one of the girls banged against my side and I shrieked, sure we were going down. Lindsay rights me, pulls me close. I lean my head on her shoulder and puff out a petulant, "Bitch." Her grip tightens just a touch and she laughs. I haven't been this drunk since senior year of college, when we did Christmas at her parent's beach house in Key West. I wouldn't be this drunk now except she begged. 

Hung over and washed out wouldn't do for the wedding, and even after that insane night on the beach with jello shots and beer funnels and tequila body shots, I had woken up without a hang over. And that's what you do, when your best friend begs the night before her wedding--you do her shots while the rest of the bridal party screams at the strippers and you slip her watered down beer that smells like piss. You take the holy fuck never again drunk, because tomorrow, no one will be looking at me while she prances down the aisle in white. Well. One person will. And he'd think this shit was hilarious. I giggle against Linds' shoulder and she bumps me gently. "You good?" She murmurs as we wait for the cab. I smirk up at her, the world spinning unsteadily. "I'm fucking wasted." She laughs softly and kisses my forehead. "Lindsay, get in," one of the other girls calls and she peers at the cab. 

It won't hold all of us, and I can feel a new tension settle over my best friend. Lindsay doesn't have a lot of close friends. Partly because we came here, to this city neither of us knows, because of the boys. So we both started over. And because when we have each other, and the boys, well. We don't need much else. But she's more social than I am. And she works at a small ad agency, where she's gotten close to the other girls. So when she needed bridesmaids, of course she asked them. I smirk as Lindsay shakes her head. "Y’all go. Peyton and I will grab the next." There's a moment of rain splattered quiet and then the girl--I forget but I think she's one of the Jennifers--shrugs and slides into the little cab, slamming the door behind her. "What a bitch," I mutter. She laughs, that real noise that I know like breathing. 

Not the fake shit she's been shoveling at the other girls all night. "Stop it," she orders and I blink up at her. "You’re thinking too much. Your drunk, Pey. Let go and enjoy it." I lean into her, and murmur, "Wanna help?" She laughs again, shoving my shoulder, and I giggle. "You are such a slut when you drink." She mutters. I nod agreeably, and a cab pulls up. It's dingy and the driver is frowning at his phone even as it he pulls to a stop. He gives us a distracted look as we spill in and the world sways, dizzy for a long moment. Lindsay tugs me against her as I whimper and pushes my hair back, studying me. "The Embassy Suites," she says and he nods, jerking into motion. Linds mutters under her breath and reaches for her seatbelt. "Sit up, honey. Belt. The rain is awful." "Freaking mother hen," I grumble and she shrugs, implacable. I huff and shift to sit up and my phone goes off, the ringtone that only Rike has. I squeal and Lindsay reaches for me as I scramble for my purse, abandoned on the dark, dirty floorboard. I close my hand over it and hear her scream, my name a twisted noise that is almost unrecognizable. It's the last thing I can't remember.
