**You should read Frozen Barriers (Barriers #1) first. Hidden Barriers can be read as a standalone, but some situations overlap with those in Frozen Barriers.**
Josh & Sam’s Story
Love has been hiding for too long. What happens when it reveals itself?
Josh Page, a Massachusetts State Trooper, wants nothing more than to put his first love behind him. His career is all he’s ever known for the last ten years. Seeing her is a constant reminder of what he could have had if he had not put his career first years ago.
Relationships and dating women have never been part of his lifestyle. He continues to have meaningless sex with women as an attempt to distance himself from his past. That is until he opens the door and a sassy roller derby girl stares back up at him.
Samantha Daley’s past haunts her. After college, she spends years building a new life with new friends, roller derby, and a bustling business under her feet. Her past suddenly comes rushing back after just one phone call.
Afraid to love, she never imagines a life where one man can turn her world inside out and make her reevaluate what she wants in her future. Almost instantly, she’s attracted to the man in front of her. He pushes her trust to a new level and is willing to take a chance with her.
Will Sam be able to handle the reminders of her troubled past enough for her to be with Josh, or will it be Josh’s secrets that threaten to tear them apart in the end?
***As with all the books in the Barriers Series, there isn’t a cliffhanger.***
**For mature audiences. 18+. This book contains sexual and abusive situations, and strong language.*
“The feeling of sleeping in your own bed is comforting in and in itself. When you fall asleep in the arms of a beautiful woman, that’s peace. The moment you wake up next to the women who’s quickly taking your heart in her hands, comfort and peace cease to exist. This is absolute euphoria.” ~ Josh

Frozen Barriers is her debut novel. Her next book in the Barriers series, Hidden Barriers, is set to be released late Summer 2014. Although she has said she was putting the third and final book in this series off until 2015, Sara cannot rule out a possible novella due out around the holiday season.
Lindsay Christianson seemingly has it all—the perfect career, the perfect boyfriend, and the best-laid plans for a perfect life—until one phone call changes everything.
With a moments notice, Lindsay must choose between her perfect life and her professional dreams. The choice momentarily seems clear when the opportunity to propel her career abruptly sends her across the country, leaving everything she loves behind in North Carolina.
Navigating a new city with a broken heart and a job where her colleagues will do anything to sabotage her success, the pressure quickly becomes too great. When old habits resurface, Lindsay finds herself chasing demons she thought were long since buried.
With pain and destruction left in her wake, will Lindsay find a way to erase the damage she’s done, or will her sins remain unforgiven?
**This book is a Contemporary Romance and contains mature subject matter. It is not intended for those under 17 years of age.**
“All right, everyone.” Lindsay stands up and pushes back her chair slightly. She wobbles a bit on her heels and rests her hand on my shoulder to steady herself. “Apparently, tonight is as good as any night to let you all in on a little secret.” She wipes the palms of her hands down the sides of her black dress.
“So, for a little over a year now, Matt and I have been seeing each other.” There are a few chuckles, but mostly everyone sits silently listening to Lindsay. “We’ve kept it quiet for a while simply because it’s what worked for us.” She shrugs. “It started off casual and just turned into more, and we didn’t really make a big deal out of it.” She looks down at me and smiles the most beautiful, genuine smile I’ve ever seen. Her blue eyes sparkle in the lights from the crystal chandelier and her long, blonde hair hangs in waves. She looks almost angelic in the dimly lit room. “So, cat’s out of the bag.” She laughs and raises her glass. I stand up and raise my glass next to hers. “To Matt and me,” she says with a smile on her beautiful face. I lean in and press a long kiss to her lips while everyone hoots and hollers around us.
“I love you, sweet girl,” I say between kisses.

Will she accept his unusual proposition, one that allows him to hold on to her while she catches up on life?…and will she choose him after experiencing all the wonders that await her?
Find out as Jazz and Julian explore their potential…
Nicole’s 4 Star Review
There is something about the idea of meeting some handsome stranger on a plane bound for exotic and distant locales that grabs my attention every time. In Peyton Sloane’s debut novel, Exploration, Jazz Mickelson finds herself in just that situation.
On a plane bound for France, Jazz meets Julian St. Sauveur. He is everything her life hasn’t been. He’s worldly, rich and full of life. Recently widowed at age 26, Jazz has spent the last several years caring for her dying husband. His death was a slow demise that robbed them both of a life meant to be lived. In an effort to take control of her life and live a little, Jazz decides to travel internationally. Julian is not your average multi-millionaire with a penchant for naughtiness and one night stands. He is actually searching for a deep and committed relationship. At one time, Julian thought he had them. It turns out he didn’t.
The two of them meet in First Class and “things” escalate quickly. In a HUGE step from her comfort zone, Jazz gets a little naughty right there on the plane. Julian is immediately both turned on and taken with Jazz, and offers Jazz a rather unusual proposal. Looking to try new things and have adventures, Jazz accepts.
Peyton Sloane’s tells their story with in a way that gives her debut novel a strong voice. She can definitely write an incredibly hot sex scene! Plenty of heat, chemistry and naughtiness for everyone!! My biggest beef with this book is that it has a huge cliffie!! And it isn’t your typical cliffie, believe me!! I give Exploration 4 stars. Because of the HUGE cliffhanger, I immediately purchased the second book, Obstruction. I think you will too!!
I have been an extreme bibliophile since I was a kid, precociously finishing my first read of “Gone with the Wind” at age 12. I’ve had lots of stories whirling around in my head over the years and am grateful for the opportunities afforded by the relatively new world of self-publishing.
Personally, I am a wife, career woman and mom to 2 amazing little divas, hence their photo on my page, rather than mine, they are WAY cuter…
I ride a Harley, have ink, a smart mouth and a dirty mind – this latter always with apologies to my mom who wishes she could wash it out with soap!
This journey of writing I am on is by far the most landmark moment in my life. I will always hope that my characters and their stories will bring as much enjoyment to my readers as I get from writing them
I’ve lost everything. My home, my job, my purpose in life—everything has been turned upside down. But while life hasn’t exactly turned out the way I would have liked it to, I wouldn’t change a thing. If things were different, I wouldn’t have Lacey. I wouldn’t have Michael.
But most importantly, I wouldn’t have him.
I’ve realized what I feel. He knew it before I did. Only one question remains:
Is he capable of feeling the same way?
Secrets are a prison, and I have been behind bars for years. Sloane Romera has been turning keys in all of my locks, throwing light on corners of my mind that I thought would forever be shrouded in darkness. Or at least I had hoped would be.
I have done so many wrongs in this life, and yet this woman has forgiven me. She’s done something I never thought possible—she has learned to understand me, and she hasn’t run. She’s amazed me. She’s saved me. She’s fallen in love with me.
If it’s within my power, I’m about to do the same for her
DAWN C’s 5 star review
Release Day: September 18th 2014
They say there is an exception to every rule…
Jada Stanley is starting over, refusing to repeat her past mistakes. Everything is going great until she meets Cane Alexander. He is gorgeous, cocky, and everything she needs to avoid.
Cane lives within a set of carefully constructed guidelines to ensure his life remains uncomplicated. When he sets his eyes on Jada, all of his rules are called into question.
As their worlds become intertwined, they find it impossible to stay away from each other. Will they be able to maintain the rules they’ve created to protect their hearts? Or will they make an exception?
If I close my eyes, maybe she’ll disappear.
“That was amazing. So good, Cane.”
The woman nestled against me, her hand draping across my body. She stroked my skin, the intimacy of the action curling my stomach.
I switched on the bedside lamp, letting my eyes adjust to the bright light. Glancing at the clock, I pushed her hand away.
It’s not too late. She can still go home.
Sitting up, I swung my legs over the side of the bed; my body groaned in response. I stretched my arms overhead in an attempt to work some life back into my exhausted muscles.
This girl was a decent choice for a last minute decision. Memories of her contorted in a variety of wicked ways, screaming my name, made my dick harden again.
“Do you want me to get us something to eat?” she asked.
Her nails grazed down my back and I moved out of her reach. Her touch, like her voice, was more annoying than I remembered it being a few hours earlier.
That’s because you just dumped a load.
I twisted around. Her blonde hair was spread across my pillows, black makeup smeared across her face. A part of me wanted to tell her she looked like hell, but a bigger part of me didn’t care enough to point it out. I just needed her gone.
She rolled onto her back, cheap perfume wafting through the air. She pulled the sheets tight around her body.
I’m going to have to do laundry. Hell, I’ll probably just have to burn the sheets to get rid of that smell.
“I was thinking I would grab us some hamburgers. I could pick up some things for breakfast while I’m out.”
I cringed at the implications saturating her voice. “You’re going to need to tone that shit down.”
“What are you talking about?”
“Look, I have things to do tonight.” Her face was familiar but her name—not so much.
“Oh, that’s fine. I can just wait here while you do what you need to do.” She flashed me her biggest smile and settled back into the sheets, looking way too comfortable in my bed.
“No. You’re going to need to get up, get dressed, and go home.” I massaged my temples with my fingertips, a migraine inching its way into my skull.
For fuck’s sake! Why isn’t this ever as easy as they make it out to be? Maybe I should get them to sign some shit, a ‘This is a Fuck and Only a Fuck’ disclaimer or something.
“I really have no plans for tomorrow, Cane.” She licked her lips, still swollen from moments before.
“We discussed this. We fuck. You leave. You know this.”
She had the nerve to look hurt.
“I didn’t think you were going to say that once we were done.”
“It was amazing. It is always amazing with me.” I flashed her a grin and literally watched her swoon.
That never gets old.
“Look, I don’t do this ‘sex and a sandwich’ thing, but that is not a newsflash.”
“Why does it feel like we’ve been here before?” Frustration took over and I took a deep breath, trying to keep myself calm. All I needed was a hot little body to dump my stress into for a little while and I had made no illusions otherwise. She agreed to this before she followed me home.
Why does it have to be complicated now? I ran my fingers through my short blond hair, scrubbing my scalp in annoyance.
“When I was here a few months ago, we had lunch, too. Remember? We sat out on the patio.”
Remember her face. Do not triple dip this one.
“You don’t understand how this works.” I glanced at her reclining against my pillows and fought hard to not sound as brusque as I felt. “I have a bunch of shit to do. You really need to go.”
She sighed dramatically as she got up and found her jeans on the floor. I watched her ass jiggle as she pulled them on slowly, undoubtedly for my benefit.
I had to restrain myself from grabbing her and fucking her one more time, just for good measure.
That is only going to make getting her out of here even harder and she simply isn’t good enough to waste any more time on.
Instead, I sat and enjoyed the show. She turned to face me as she pulled her shirt over her head, her eyes never leaving mine. She tucked her bra in her purse.
With a final glance over her shoulder, presumably to give me time to change my mind, she was gone.
And I was alone again—just the way I liked it.

I was born and raised in Louisiana… and No, I do NOT live in a bayou, I actually see the beaches on the gulf coast more than I see a bayou, lol. I started writing poems and short stories very early in my life. You know, for the Michael’s and Leo’s and Nick’s in my life. I’ve been a book hoarder since I was eleven years old, but then a couple years ago something wonderful happened! The 50 Shades of Grey craze brought to life my inner smut whore and I commenced to read anything and everything smut affiliated. When reading wasn’t enough anymore and I noticed that so many of the authors of my favorite indie authors and their books weren’t getting the exposure their work deserved, I turned it into a mission, starting my own blog, buying their books and reading them one by one. I then wrote my reviews for my blog and didn’t hold back in writing them (Hell yeah those motherfuckers a profanity laden). I’ve never done a single thing in my life halfway. I always go all in. After the success of my Blog, and the insistence of one of my bestest friends, my sister from another mister, Trina Taylor of Bad & Dirty Books, I was ready to finally take the plunge and see if I could write a book that was worth a damn.
Tattooed across my ribs are the words I have always lived by: ‘Aut viam inveniam aut faciam tibi.’ Latin for: If I cannot find a way, I will make my own.
If you want to contact me, give me a shout out at 3am because my story just decimated your work day potential, or hell if you want to stalk me (I’ve met some of my BFF’s that way, don’t judge a stalker, they are awesome, fun, kickass bitches) follow me on these links:
I’ve destroyed everything in my life and now I’m left with nothing.
Alone and scared.
Broken and shattered.
But I’ve found a way to deal with it.
Instead of all the pain being on the inside, I make the outside ache too. Anything to make it easier to breathe.
Until one beautiful morning when I look outside and see her.
She tries to help me…
But I’m lost.
And I’m not sure I can ever be found

Title: INDISCRETION: Vol. 2
Author: Elisabeth Grace
Publication Date: August 18, 2014
Fraternizing with the competition? Check.
Risking everything I’d worked so hard for? Check.
Mind-shattering orgasms? Double check.
Max Richfield made me forget myself. Forget all the reasons why I’d chosen to be alone for so long. I had goals. I needed stability. He brought chaos. I’d taken years erecting my walls. And with good reason, I would soon discover.
Now my inability to see beyond Max’s charm could cost me everything.
Kristine’s review 5 stars
I was very excited to go into Indiscretion vol 2 after reading vol 1. I never expected my eyes to read such sexy scenes as I came across in this one!!! Holy, I gotta go change my undies… 5 star hot!! Sorry for the tmi, but I don’t know how else to describe it! This is Elisabeth Graces’s first serial and she owned it!
In this second volume we get deeper into the mind of Chloe and Max. The plot thickens, we find out more about their backgrounds, why they are the way they are. People, Family and jobs are all continuing to impact the decisions they make. So the only thing that would work and continue to work for them is this…..
They made an arrangement….
“You’re so w** already, and I’ve barely touched you…you’re such a fu***** turn on. You know that, don’t you?” ~ Max
Will emotions come to interfere?
“You mentioned you’d had a long few days, so I thought a massage might help you to relax.” ~Max
“You tell me what you want from me, and I’ll always deliver, baby.” ~ MaxHello! He is every women’s Dream!Will Chloe be able to keep this going? Not every story runs it course easy. There are road blocks, detours that come in the way. People don’t like the way things look and ultimatums are made. Secrets are left to be told. Things can shatter in seconds! What is to be of Chloe and Max’s future?As I’m writing this I can’t help but get emotionally sad and excited all at the same time! Elisabeth is amazing, putting everything so far together causing high emotion and elation for the next installment. With each volume it keeps getting better and better!!
Dawn’s review 4 starsAs the story continues in Volume 2… The question remains, is it possible to just keep things casual?? Every time Max and Chloe see each other, fireworks go off but slowly their walls are coming down also. Chloe seems to be calling the shots and keeping Max on his toes without even trying. She’s keeping her distance following her rules ….or is she?? Max on the other hand, takes Chloe out of her comfort zone and take a care of her like no one has done before. Max is taken back by Chloe, she is like no one he has ever met before. Can these two be just what each other needed? This book gets deeper into their individual backgrounds…. hummmm are there hidden secrets or troubled pasts?? Plots are forming. By the end of this one, you are dying for more. Looks like it’s going to be a great series!!!!
