One Week till Shane's Ruin
And yours, Postmate! <3
I’m writing this edition of The Writer Gal Letter, listening to the insanely peppy and awesome Only Murders in the Building score. And, if you haven’t seen this brilliant dark comedy I urge you to watch it ASAP. One day, Postmate, I hope to give you an entertainer as worthy of praise as Only Murders is! :)
Until then, let’s talk about the entertainer I hope you will love as much as I do, for the moment - RUIN Bastard Billionaires 2 - available for pre-order now!
RUIN Releases 31st October, right in time for Halloween (although, we only have a Royal Ball in the book, which should masquerade for the games people play in love and war).
Ruin Sneak Peek
I’ve put together a teeny excerpt of RUIN that’s available ONLY to my beloved Postmates. Just so you get a taste of what’s to come in Lena and Shane’s incredible, thriller of a romance.

Read on for a sneakier peek from the sneak peek.
He had blood on his hands. Unwashable. Eternal. Inked in his very DNA.
The blood of the enemy. Felled by the weapon he carried with all the ease of a warrior toting his bow. And just as finally destructive.
Shane Maxwell McRae, former Lieutenant of the US Marine Corps, current operative of Sagitta Consulting – a top-tier black ops security firm with contacts virtually all over the world - stared at his blood-stained hands. They were firm, tanned, with well-shaped fingers and nails. As befit the surgeon he’d once dreamed of becoming when he wanted to save lives.
Now, he did the opposite of saving lives.
He took them. Remorselessly. With perfect calculation. With maximum precision.
A hot lump of something formed in his throat. Lodged tight there. He thought it might be the echoes of all the screams trapped inside of him when he squeezed the trigger that final time. But the truth was infinitely worse.

ARCs are going out tomorrow so you’ll be able to get your hands on the book A WHOLE WEEK before the rest of the world :)
There is a reason why I have been basically obsessed with this book, this story for close to two years. It’s darker and sexier than most books I’ve written so far. The only book that beats Ruin in terms of heat, IMO, is Her Millionaire’s Secret - Kit and Lily’s romance.
And now, here’s a HOT scene which, by the way, is the culmination of seven years of desire between these two warring heads. I hope this SLOWwwww burn romance KILLS you, Postmate ;)
“Princess Helena,” he breathed. “The most beautiful woman in the world tonight.”
She blushed, it was so weird that she’d blush at this moment.
He looked at the color climbing in her cheeks and smiled. Just a little. As if he liked it.
“And I get to kiss her.”
Lena reared up, impatient to get to the kiss.
Shane held her off. He kissed her shoulder, the bared one. And worked his way up. Each press of his mouth a slow and exquisite torrent of pleasure and pain on her skin. Her very blood.
When he reached her sculpted jaw, he nipped at it. A small, sexy bite.
Now, Lena shuddered in his hands.
Shane moved upward, and kissed her nose. A small affectionate peck. And then hovered, right before her lips. His lips a breath away. The look in his eyes, breathtaking need, shivered through her.
Burning all her inhibitions and vulnerabilities away.
Her lips quivered and the tip of her tongue came out to wet her dry mouth.
His green, green eyes followed the movement. Greedily.
And, then, in slow motion, his head descended and he kissed her. Softly, sweetly. Taking care to not disturb her lipstick. His lips pressing against hers in gentle rhythms.
When they broke apart they were breathing like they’d just had jungle sex.
Writer Gal’s Writer Pals Present
It’s All Hallows Eve time, so it’s a spooky time. This month’s writer pal offerings skew towards the ghostly, the sexy, and the fun!
First up is RJ Gray’s Phantom. A badass bomb of a book that kickstarts the Veterans of Valhalla series. I mean, just look at that blond Viking cover and tell me you’re not dying to know how Phantom finds love. No?
Next up is an amazing anthology available for just 99c! It’s got shifters, witches, and more all mushed up together in a juicy collection of paranormal romances by bestselling authors!
Last but certainly not least, is a sweet cozy ghostly mystery by a dear friend, Jessica Ardern. I am so in love with this cover and this blurb, but because I have been basically living in the cave of words I haven’t carved time to read this mystery! I’m definitely going to do so once I go on my Diwali holiday! :D
And now we come to the many exclusive sales and freebie events I am excited to share with you. Click on whatever clicks your fancy and dive into new worlds and words, Postmate.
That is all I have for you in this edition of TWGL. I’ll write in when RUIN releases and give you more updates on ALL the excitement happening in Aarti V Raman-verse.
Till then, stay safe and awesome,
