FIGHTING FOR FOREVER




Title: Fighting for Forever
Series: Fighting #6
Author: JB Salsbury
 Release Date: June 23, 2015



Blurb

Slut. Hooker. Whore.

The taunts never bothered me. They only see what I allow them to see, and a Las Vegas stripper is the perfect cover.

My life had direction. I had a mission—until the man I needed vanished and is presumed dead.

It’s time to move on—give up the dream for revenge—and no one shows me that more than the mop-headed fighter with eyes the color of the ocean.

If anyone can teach me just how sweet life can be, it’s him. But first, I’d have to let go.

Mase. Baywatch. Mayhem.

I’m known by many names, but there’s only one that stirs panic and worry in my gut every time I’m called it.

Brother.

I’ve bailed him out of trouble for years, so when he turns up in Vegas and asks for me, I’m prepared for the worst. And the worst is exactly what I get in the form of a lilac-eyed beauty named Trix.

She’s everything I hate about Vegas: a stripper, loose with her body and her morals. But there’s something about her, a complexity that she buries deep, and I’m determined to uncover it.

The deeper I go, the less I understand. When I finally learn the truth, we engage in a battle where life and death hang in the balance. Fighting could kill us both, but if we win, forever is the prize.

Book Excerpts

Excerpt #1
I am at a Halloween party - my first in years. I wear an early 19th-century style off-white summer dress, a matching hat and high-heeled suede shoes with buttons on the front. The party is inside of a house near Lincoln and Seventh streets in downtown Bloomington. It is so full of costumed IU students that it is terribly hot. Given my dress is meant for summer, I try to tolerate it, but can't. I go looking for my friend to tell her I am going to leave. After several minutes of searching, I start to feel faint and leave without seeing her. As I head down the front stairs of the house, I hear one of the front doors open. I turn to see a young man in jeans and plaid shirts, not a costume, come out. 
I turn back and continue down the stairs when suddenly I am bumped into and my feet lose traction on the stairs. My feet slide back and my body tips backward until my heels are completely off the step. I bend my legs at the knees as I attempt to twist to my right to grab the metal railing, instead my fingertips brush it. I feel a sharp pain in my ribs as they hit the edge of a step. Then the side of my head hits the concrete knocking me out. I do not come to for several moments. When I do, I feel my body sliding down the steps and every part of me being bumped all the way down. I keep blacking out and coming to all the while helpless to stop the fall. The whole thing feels like it is taking forever. I wish I could cry out to the man who caused the fall to stop this, but each hit on the steps keeps me from doing so. Finally it stops and the last thing I hear before I black out for a final time is the man apologizing profusely, and telling me not to worry, an ambulance is on the way.


Excerpt #2
This night I dream just like the night before. Once again, I see myself in a hospital bed.  The traction is present, and so is the swelling, but this time I notice it is down. My mom sits nearby in a chair with Pastor Tommy sitting next to her. I can tell mom is quite upset but her tone of voice is surprisingly controlled as she speaks with the Pastor. 
“I know it was an accident. The young man was preoccupied when he exited the dorm house, but I wish he had chosen to look up to see if he was alone. He knew there was a party on the other side of the house, and people would be coming and going. Knowing this, how could he not have checked? It wouldn't have taken much time - mere seconds to see Rebecca was on the stairs,” my mom says angrily.
“Yes, it wouldn't have taken long, but in hindsight, many of us don't consider looking ahead as we head out the door. This time this act led to an unfortunate accident. Rebecca got lucky he immediately called for help,” says Pastor Tommy in his comforting Georgian drawl.
“At least she is alive, thank goodness.” My mom pauses several moments before saying, "There is so much swelling, and her neck bones - who knows if she will keep the movement in her legs. The surgeon told me the swelling has to go down before he can do surgery. For days it has been waiting and more waiting!” New tears form and drop from her eyes. Seconds later the hospital room fades, and I awake to the alarm clock going off. 



Excerpt #3
The rest of the day is uneventful until I pass through the front door after a long day at work to hear the phone ringing. Immediately I answer the phone in the kitchen while still holding the mail in one hand and my purse still on my shoulder.
"Hello," I say.
"Hi, you sound breathless," says the young man on the phone.
"I heard the phone ringing just as I was walking into the house," I say.
"Oh, I'm sorry about that. I just called to see if you wanted to have a Halloween themed birthday party this year," says the young man.
As there was no mention of a boyfriend in the diary, I hope it is Stephen on the phone and not some unknown boyfriend.  "Sorry Stephen, I don't want to repeat that for this year," I say.
"Oh then what would you like?" asks Stephen.
I feel relief, and it must have shown because the next thing I hear before I can get another word out is, "Are you alright? I heard you sigh."
"I'm fine," I say.
"Positive, Becca?" Stephen asks.
Does he call his sister Becca? No one calls me that at work. Maybe it is a family thing.  "Yes, I am," I say.
"Okay then, what do you have in mind for your birthday?" asks Stephen.  
"A hamburger pizza at All American Pizza and a brown derby cake from Marge's," I respond.
Stephen is silent longer than I expect. I have fond memories of All American Pizza, and the brown derby cake became a quick favorite of mine. Its hamburger pizza matches its namesake exactly to a T, and I am not exaggerating. A derby cake has yellow cake cut into the shape of a brown derby hat filled with fresh sliced fruit and whipped cream. On the inside, there is light frosting and coconut flakes. I think Stephen must be familiar with both places. I am wrong.
"You hate their pizza and where the heck is Margie's?" asks Stephen.
"I do not hate their pizza anymore, and Margie's is just past Pathmark Supermarket and the Entenmann's shop," I say.
“Oh, I know what you mean; the other side of Terrill Road bridge in Scotch Plains.  And it was only September when I was at All American Pizza with you, and you couldn't believe I dragged you there for lunch!" exclaims Stephen. 
"Well, a lot changed in a short time," I say lamely.
"So you want a low key birthday?" asks Stephen.
"Yes" I tell him.

Excerpt Logo

We sit in silence for a few moments, Alex tracing my scar with his fingers. He moves slowly behind me. I feel his breath against my neck. It’s a warning to all my senses to be on my guard. My body yearns for his touch. I want him. The darkness and uncertainty of the last few minutes has lifted and has been replaced with desire.
He places small kisses on my neck and slowly but gently moves down my back until he reaches the scar, where he stops and lingers. Seriously? He can’t keep overthinking this, or it will be a painful weekend for both of us. I don’t want to waste the time we have together.
“Alex.” My voice is barely a whisper.
“Yes, baby.”
“I want you now, please.”
“You have me.” He moves from behind me and pushes me down flat on the bed. He pulls my bra straps off my shoulders and throws the bra on the floor. How did I not notice him undoing the clip? He stands at the side of the bed and removes his trousers and boxers in one go.
Oh, what a sight before me.
“Libby, see what you do to me?”
My eyes slowly run the length of his body, leaving the most important part, at this moment, to savour.
“Anything I can help you with, Miss Stewart? You seem to be rather taken with a certain part of my anatomy,” he says with a devilish grin.
“Of course you can help. It’s a part of your body I want to get reacquainted with, considering how long it’s been since we were last together like this.” I reach my arms out to him and pull him toward me.
His grin is infectious. His lips find mine with passion and force. His tongue invades my mouth almost violently. I forcefully run my hands through his hair. A slight moan leaves him. His hands are all over my body, not staying in one place long, which is just as well, because I need this as quickly as he does. There will be plenty of time for deep and meaningful later. There’s no doubt in my mind what we both want in this moment.
All the frustration of our weeks apart boils away between us. We both seem to be worked up. He seems to be right where he wants to be and looks straight into my eyes for approval, which I give. My hands leave his hair and travel down his back. I move my legs, wrapping them around his waist, giving him all the invitation he needs.

Author Bio

A Georgetown University graduate with a degree in English Literature, I’ve loved the Regency romance genre since my first deliciously bad Barbara Cartland novel. These days, I prefer the complex characterizations and plotting of Julie Anne Long, Sherry Thomas, Meredith Duran, Courtney Milan, and Sarah MacLean. A member of the Romance Writers Association of America, I am currently working on my next novel, as the ghosts who live in my haunted, gilded-age home try to sneak their way into my stories.

Book Excerpts
Excerpt 1:
“Suffice it to say that in the wrong hands, the missing dispatches could change the course of the war. But I think you may be uniquely qualified to help find them.”
Jane pondered Lord Marworth’s statement for a long moment, replaying the words, hoping she’d misunderstood. But only one conclusion was logical. A dark one. “You are obviously having a bit of fun at my expense, although I fail to see the humor in it.”
“I’m quite serious, Miss Fitzsimmons.” He was staring at her intently now. “It is absolutely vital they be found.”
“And you are ... what?” she mocked. “Some sort of agent for the crown, I suppose? Sent here to enlist me for service?”
“You could say that.”
A burst of anger, hot and devastating, surged through her. “It is one thing, Lord Marworth, to amuse yourself by imagining international intrigue,” she said, her voice rising. “But it is quite another to involve someone else in your fantasy. I’m afraid I haven’t the time for it. If you will excuse me … ”
She stood, intent on rushing from the room.
“This is no fantasy.”
She spun to face him. “You’ll forgive me, of course, for not believing you. Given your busy schedule of idle amusements and seductions, it’s hard to imagine you’ve the time for anything substantive. Like saving the country from Napoleon. That sort of thing.”
“Appearances are not always what they seem, Miss Fitzsimmons … ”

Excerpt 2:
Benjamin blinked to clear his vision. This was Jane Fitzsimmons, and yet she was not. This woman had swayed into the room like a seductress, every movement hypnotic. Her features were the same, even if her cheekbones were more pronounced, and her eyes seemed larger, the faintest hint of kohl at their corners. Her new hairstyle framed her face beautifully. But that body. He’d never guessed, and he was a connoisseur of the female form.
“You look … very nice,” he said, his famed wit deserting him.
“You, as well, monsieur le Vicomte,” she replied. There was an artful lilt to her speech, hinting at French shores and exquisite schooling. “But of course, the comtesse told me to expect a handsome man, and I have learned during our short acquaintance she is not given to exaggeration.”
He swallowed reflexively. She’d stopped just in front of him, mere inches away. Reaching up, she placed a tentative hand on his shoulder and then leaned in, standing on her toes to place a light kiss first on one cheek and then the other, while he stood utterly still, breathing her in, unable to deny he was lanced with desire.
She pulled back, her hand falling gently to her waist. “That is how I greet my friends in Paris, monsieur, and I’m told we are to be great friends.”
“If that is how the French greet their friends,” he said, fighting to keep his voice light, “I am renouncing my British citizenship.”
