Beautifully Used

The Beaumont Brothers

Book 2

3

Sex with no strings. That's the way Brodie Beaumont likes it. He uses women and they use him...

Suave, handsome Brodie Beaumont has a history of using and being used by women. A past he doesn't like to talk about has turned him into the type of guy he is today, but he hasn't really cared. Until the beautiful and feisty Gabrielle Demeres comes back into his life. 

Gabrielle learned the hard way what type of guy Brodie was the first time she met him. His crude seduction attempt earned him a slap to his face, and Gabrielle wasn't exactly looking forward to another encounter with the cad. Unfortunately, her best friend was marrying Brodie's brother, and Gabrielle and Brodie would be forced to spend time together whether she liked it or not. 

As things in the small, quiet town of Turtle Lake take a decidedly dark and dangerous turn, Gabrielle and Brodie only have each other to turn to. Will they be capable of over coming their aversion to one another while coping with their own troubled pasts and dealing with the current dangers surrounding them? Or is their hostility just skating the fine line between love and hate?

About the author

I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania, spending most of my time daydreaming or playing around in the mud. I grew out of the mud play, well, most of the time, a good soak in the mud is always fun. I still daydream often and sometimes my daydreams interrupt my daydreams. So I write to remember them. If I didn't write, I think my mind would explode from an overload of fantasy and weirdness. To the annoyance of my friends and family, my characters sometimes become a part of my world. During my childhood, I would frequently get in trouble in school for daydreaming. Eventually, my vivid imagination paid off and I had the privilege of writing and co-directing my sixth-grade class play--a dreadful disaster, though not from my writing, of course. I'm pretty sure it was the acting.

I enjoy writing about characters living in small quaint towns and tend to lean toward the unusual and edgy.

My paranormal playing field delves into a different milieu, abandoning vampires and werewolves, but not discounting them. Someday I might like to write a novel about vamps and those furry creatures. But for now I like the bizarre mixed with romance. A strong hero or heroine confronted with extraordinary forces of nature, powers and capabilities gets my blood running hot as does an steamy contemporary romantic suspense.

“I'm not sure what possessed me to do it. Maybe it was the impossible expectations I faced, maybe it was my own self-loathing. But I just knew I needed something different to happen. I needed someone...something...to derail me from my current path. Otherwise, I would become lost...a hollowed out shell of a man. So I did it. I approached her, then I pursued her, then I made her mine. And my life was saved...”

Ryan Burnham is the privileged son of a U.S. Congressman and captain of his university’s hockey team. While he is on the verge of fulfilling his dreams to play in the NHL, his parents want him on a different course. One he is expected to accept for the sake of his family’s public image.

Forced to abandon her music career after the heart breaking death of her parents, Danny Cross exists on the opposite side of the tracks from Ryan. She is struggling to make her own way, working two jobs, attending college part time and volunteering in a homeless shelter. She is on a mission to build her own success.

With a chance meeting, their vastly different worlds collide, causing each to evaluate whether they are truly on the correct path to self-fulfillment and happiness. Can their relationship survive? Particularly when others are against them every step of the way. A lot can happen in just ten short days...

"Profoundly Touching. "From the first page to the last I found myself enthralled in the story. Beautifully Wounded is an inspiring book, filled with hope and healing. I'm really looking forward to reading the next book in this series." - The Kindle Book Review

"These books are wonderful. The trio starts with the harrowing tragic beginning to Beautifully Wounded with Jackson Beaumont. Then on to the exasperating clashes of Beautifully Used with Brodie Beaumont. And finally the lonliness and feelings of abandonment in Beautifully Undone with Asher Beaumont. All three books are, yes, I'm going there, beautifully written. The guys are so much fun to read. And the girls are... sorry. That would give spoilers. The situations are engrossing. I only put the books down long enough to feed the dogs. This set would make the ideal summer vacation read."- Ravenz Reviews

"This has got to come with a warning label. Caution may set your panties on fire and your heart thumping! I'm addicted to the Beaumont boys and this is my cure."  Amazon Reviewer

This is the complete series of the Beaumont Brothers consisting of books 1-3. 

Beautifully Wounded - Jackson and Lena's Story

Beautifully Used - Brodie and Gabrielle's Story

Beautifully Undone - Asher and Melody's Story

Beautifully Wounded, originally titled, The Fawn, was inspired by a long time day dream I'd had as a child and continued into young adult hood. I'd always had this fantasy of being saved by my prince. Jackson is that prince. The original name came about because of the fawn Jackson nurtured when he was a kid. But then, I thought people might think the book was about a cute little deer, so it became Beautifully Wounded, which worked out well for the next two books.  
 
All three books can be read as stand-alones, but if you are going to read all three, and want to get to know each of the brothers individually, I'd suggest starting with Jackson and Lena in Beautifully Wounded.
  
All three of these stories deal with real life situations and social issues. I've tried my best to keep it as real as possible, of course, it is fiction, and I do like to have a happily ever after at the end of all my stories. Just a warning, the sex scenes get steamier with each book. Sorry, I just couldn't help it. 
 
It takes a strong individual to bounce back from some of the horrors of real life, and I believe I've portrayed that in these stories. Never give up hope, because I truly believe you are what you make of yourself and we are all in control of our own situations. Be brave, be strong, and don't ever let someone tell you that you can't do something that you have a passion for.
