To me, love was inordinate.
For those of you reading Raven’s Undoing, two things…..
1st – I discovered an issue with the my book links and the paperback and kindle versions were not linked together, but Amazon has fixed this. I kept getting asked of there was a kindle version too and it took me a while to figure out what was going on. So YES, you can get it in paperback or Kindle.
2nd – As you finish the book, I am dying to know what your thoughts are as to how I ended it. And not to give away any spoilers, feel free to email me at my author email address. NDWhite_Author@zoho.com.
And 3rd (okay I had 3 things to say…) – I have ideas in place for the 3rd book, but I’m curious….Whose story are you wanting to hear next? Asher, Kat, Janie? What about Holly, Jennifer, Valerie, Jonathan, or Spencer? All of them are talking to me and they all have something to say….who do you want to hear from next?

Get lost in this wickedly delicious novel! And lucky for you, Part 2 (and the conclusion) to Raven's story is finally here, so you don't have to wait! In Raven’s Undoing, secrets are revealed, lives are turned upside down, and there’s an epic ending that you won’t see coming!
Watching the autumn leaves fall,
the sun glistens on the edges,
close to dusk,
nightfall is near.
A tear escapes down her cheek
as she stares into the fading sun.
Hugging her body tightly,
her arms absorb the shivering
that threatens to unravel her.
As she inhales deeply
the frigid air burns her
from the inside out.
She welcomes the bite,
the icy sting in her veins
is what makes her feel more alive.
A feeling she hasn’t felt since it happened.
That moment when everything changed.
She closes her eyes
as more tears threaten to make their escape.
The cold wind picks up
as the sun goes to sleep.
A single leaf catches her cheek
before blowing past her.
She tries to reach for it,
wishing the wind would
just carry her away too…

Title: Bound For Nirvana
Series: The Bound Trilogy, Book 3
Author: Kendra Leigh
Genre: Contemporary Adult Romance, Erotic Romance, Suspense
Release Date: September 29th

Relentlessly sexy. Emotionally deep. Tangled, twisted, intricately woven love story with romance and suspense.
The bonds of their love saw them through the ravaging storm to the promise of peace and the chance to breathe …
Ethan knows Hell is no place for an angel, especially not his Angel. He would sacrifice his soul every day of his life in order to save hers.
Fuelled by an almost obsessive desire, their need for each other ignites a passion that most couples could find destructive, but instead the flames of their possessive vigilance only seem to feed the fire of their insatiable hunger. The slaying of Ethan’s demons has made their fortress of love stronger than ever.
But Angel continues to paper over the cracks of her troubled past, running from the demons that chase her and the nightmares that plague her. When a twist of fate forces her to confront them, she finally begins to accept that her repressed memories need to be explored in order to attain the peace she craves.
But in her search for Nirvana, Angel discovers far more than buried memories.
What happens when the worst nightmare you’ve ever encountered is the one you wake up in?
When the past comes face to face with the present to reveal a web of diseased secrets and lies?
And the only road you can take leads to one destination … Hell.
“Angel?” Ethan’s low, husky tones startled me.
He stood in the doorway wearing nothing but a pair of low-slung, faded jeans, the sight of him inciting my taste buds to drool desirously, like chocolate melting on my tongue.
“Come here,” he instructed.
Obeying instantly, I unfurled my legs and moved across the room toward him. He gazed at me, his expression still inscrutable, and then slowly he moved around to my back.
“Close your eyes.”
Again, I complied without hesitation. I felt something soft brush gently against my eyelids, a smooth, silky fabric blocking out all remaining light as it tightened against my skin. He was blindfolding me.
My heart struck my chest wall with a sudden instinctive foretaste of what was to come. The blindfold, his insistence that I wear my red shoes, his near-naked form in the doorway, suggested only one thing. But his talk of my needing to learn a lesson, his tone, and impenetrable mood hinted at something different. Nonetheless, my skin prickled with eager expectation as I waited for my next instruction in the darkness behind my eyelids.
Suddenly, his voice startled me. He was closer than I’d imagined, his breath warm against my ear, his smell … exquisite. “How does that make you feel?”
Misreading the question, I nodded to let him know I was okay.
“No, Angel. Tell me how it makes you feel.” His voice was slightly harsher than before, more demanding.
I thought about what he wanted me to say, trying to tune in to the sensations I was feeling, but struggling. “Restricted,” I said finally.
“Anything else?” He’d shifted, his lips grazing the lobe of my other ear now.
“Think beyond the blindfold.”
My mind searched for the answer, and then after a beat I whispered, “Aware. I feel more aware.”
“What is it about me you’re more aware of?”
“How close you are … Your scent.”
“My scent? And what does it smell like?”
Hesitating, I scrambled for words to try and describe it, eventually arriving at, “You.”
I felt him smile briefly against my cheek and then he was gone.

About Charming Man
Charming Man, aka author A. S. Wilkins explores the thought-provoking world of sensual romance through themes such as encounters between strangers, sexual fantasies, illicit relationships, voyeurism and more.
A S Wilkins has been writing sensual romance for over fifteen years. It all started quite by accident, following the tragic death of his wife in 1998, when he was left with two small children to bring up alone, as well as manage his own software consultancy.
While still in a state of shock and running on auto-pilot, he settled into a daily routine of dropping the kids off at day care, fulfilling his nine to five obligations, collecting the kids in the evening, feeding them, bathing them and putting them to bed with a night-time story, before collapsing in front of the television and crying into a large glass of red.
He had neither the opportunity nor desire to meet anyone new, yet he craved companionship. Posing as Charming Man, after the name of his favourite song by his favourite band The Smiths, he began to trawl online chat rooms, striking up conversations with anonymous individuals who may or may not have been who they said they were; it made little difference to him.
A S Wilkins wears his heart on his sleeve, and it soon became apparent he was able to engage openly with people from all walks of life, be they male or female; but mostly female it has to be said. Many of his early conversations on the net were innocent in content; he would pour his heart out to anyone who would listen, and in return he would provide a shoulder to those who were equally going through difficult times. He found the process very therapeutic and saved him a fortune in counselling!
Before too long, these intimate exchanges left him wanting more, such is the nature of making a new acquaintance. However, charming by name and charming by nature, he chose never to cross the line until encouraged to do so by others. This led to many a cat and mouse war of words with many a like-minded soul, which both intrigued and excited him. It was during this time he wrote his first short story, Night Vision, detailing his longing for the next love to enter his life.
The more he chatted, the more he became obsessed with the notion of sexual encounters between strangers. Still not in a position to embark on a new relationship in the real world, he continued to engage women in cyberspace, and together they would contrive a variety of scenarios from the respective comfort of their laptops. Many of these scenarios were later to become short stories; Beach Encounter, Mid Air Collusion, Ariana, A Greek Tragedy and The Hitcher, to name a few.
Fast forward several years and A S Wilkins has found happiness once more, having settled down north of London with a new partner and their combined family of four children. The release of Fifty Shades of Grey in March 2012 prompted him to dust off his short stories for his partner to read. She was impressed and managed to persuade him to publish them. Shortly after, charmingman.com was born.
Writing as Charming Man, A S Wilkins is always on the lookout for the next encounter to write about. When two individuals make eye contact across a room or on a crowded train, and a connection is made, this is often the green light that sets his imagination on fire. A knowing look is all it can take; a word might never be spoken. However, the minute an affinity is perceived, a scenario is hatched in his head, which is then honed over the coming days and weeks into a believable idea for a story.
And this final point is key; whereas it’s true to say that many of his works are clearly fantasies, it’s important to him that these fantasies are believable. The idea of a twenty-seven year old billionaire meeting a twenty-one year old virgin just doesn’t cut it for Charming Man.

This is my post for the 777 Writers’ Challenge. I’ve shared 7 lines, starting on page 7, at line 7 of my current Work In Progress…
When it comes down to it, he knows he can’t keep me here against my will. Not over something like this. He goes over the discharge papers with us and then sends in a nurse to unhook all these wires off of my body and remove the IV from my hand. After the nurse has set me free from all the wires and tubing, she and Kat leave me alone so that I can change out of this hideous hospital gown.
After I’m dressed, I do a once-over in the mirror. I look awful, as expected. But why should I care? I’m in the hospital. I make sure that I have my purse and everything that I need, and then I carefully creep out of the room.
