Exquisite Betrayal

A. M. Hargrove

Romance / Adult, New Adult

This is a New Adult Contemporary Romance with explicit sexual and language content. It is not intended for younger readers. A male Romance Author… a convention in Vegas… a female book blogger… a goal to lose her virginity… what happens when you mix all the above? Fallon McKinley is headed to Vegas for the Wicked Wenches Romance Con and losing her virginity is only one of her goals. The other is to meet her favorite author of romance novels, R.T. Sinclair. What she doesn’t realize is that the sexy green-eyed god she rams into at the airport is the real R.T. When they keep running into each other, she’s shocked, but excited, because the attraction is irresistible. Ryland Thomas Sinclair doesn’t want anyone to know his true identity. He’s the author that all women love, but everyone thinks he’s a female. He hides his persona behind the public face of his twin sister, keeping his own a secret. But after meeting the lovely Fallon, his intentions to avoid a relationship come to a screeching halt. She’s put an unwanted kink into his perfectly laid out plans. His unusual reaction surprises him because after a heart-shredding breakup a few years ago, he’s managed to avoid women at all costs. Resisting Fallon becomes more difficult than he imagines. Soon things are spiraling out of control, until a major miscommunication has Fallon walking out of his home and his life. Will Ryland Thomas succeed in losing the woman he loves? Or can he win her back? “Exquisite Betrayal is every romance reader's fantasy! Ryland Thomas will wrap you around his pinkie and make you swoon. I was completely captivated from the first page.” Hetty W. Rasmussen from Bestsellers & Beststellars “You will fall in love with Ryland. This book will draw out all your emotions and make you crave more. It's a definite must read!! A.M. Hargrove hit a grand slam with this book. I cannot wait to see what else she has in store for us!” Heather Carver from Carver’s Book Cravings “Swept off my feet, Exquisite Betrayal is a hot steamy romance that had me holding my stomach from laughter to the excruciating ache in my chest from worry... Biting my nails from the suspenseful twists and turns, I literally couldn't put this book down...” Kathryn Grimes from Tsk, Tsk, What To Read? “I had such a book hangover after reading this book. I seriously could not put it down. Ryland, with his sexy accent, amazing looks and background in writing romances should make him an easy to fall in love with character and in some ways he is. Then there is the fact that he is flawed. Not "I am violent" or "I am a former druggy" kind of flawed. NO, he is flawed in the "I can not believe someone can be that stupid when it comes to girls" and the " I want to reach in my kindle and shake some sense into him" way. Fallon is not by any means perfect, either. Putting them together is like watching this beautiful train wreck of awesome. I seriously could not stop reading. I think it may be A.M.'s best work to date.” Delphina Miyares from Delphina Reads Too Much About the AuthorA.M. Hargrove lives in South Carolina with her husband and family. After spending years in the corporate world, she now enjoys writing fiction while she is fully caffeinated. She also thinks coffee and chocolate should be added to the USDA food groups.

Two lives with horrific pasts. One chance meeting that changed them both forever. “One look at her and I want to run. Frizzy hair, thick glasses, mom jeans, and ruffles up to her neck. Who the hell wears shit like that? What decade is she living in? My mother doesn’t even dress like that!” Raised by a monster, Kestrel Hart somehow survived. Now that the monster is dead, he’s trying to move on, to pull himself together. Struggling with issues no one can imagine, he moves away from his family, from the brother who loves him and the sister-in-law who supports and understands him the best. Charleston, South Carolina is his new home. And he has a purpose. He’s opening up a new division of his brother’s corporation. But a surprise awaits him. Her name is Carter Drayton. Carter’s past is also a painful one. She is dealing with the tragic death of her family. She’s healing in the only way she knows how. Carter needs love. Kestrel craves human contact. Neither of them recognizes what’s right before their eyes. Will they see it before it’s too late? *“I’ll do anything you want. Anything.” Then something comes over me. Call it madness. Desperation. Insanity. Call it whatever you want. I step right up to him and put my hands on his shoulders. Then I kiss him. He stands there like a chunk of stone. So I press my body up to him, and rub myself against him. I open my mouth and run my tongue over his lips, and then push it into his mouth. Nothing. No response. Humiliation sets in. I am not this girl. I’m the classic nerd. I don’t have boyfriends. Where is this coming from? He pulls away from me and steps back, rubbing his mouth. “I’m sorry, but you’re not my type.” His features initially register shock. But worse than that, distaste replaces it. That stings. Really stings. But even more dreadful, I am morbidly ashamed of myself. That doesn’t stop me from digging myself into an even deeper hole. “What? Am I not sexy enough? Are my clothes not revealing enough?” “Um, Dr. Drayton, this is more than a bit awkward.” “No, tell me. And my name is Carter.” “You’re propositioning me.” Now I detect a hint of mockery. “No, not propositioning. I want to strike a deal. You see, I’m a desperate woman. And desperate people do all kinds of things.” “Carter, I’m really not interested.” “I know I’m not very attractive, but if you want me to change the way I look, I can do that.” “You don’t understand.” “What? Am I not good enough for you?” His eyes skim me from head to toe. “Good doesn’t have anything to do with it. You’re not bad enough for me.”*
