An ebook original short story from the New York Times bestselling Queen of Erotica about what explodes when a man and woman—both suffering marital problems with their respective partners—coincidentally find themselves involved in a steamy love affair with each other despite the peril that looms at home.

Amanda is bored with life. She spends hours a day on Facebook, her parents act like they are too ancient to enjoy life any longer, and her military husband, Ralph, is deployed to Afghanistan. Gideon is not totally content at home either. His wife, Nina, is a lifetime overachiever and a workaholic. She has moved her mother into their home so she can have a live-in sitter, and Gideon has fallen to the bottom of her priority list. On Black Friday 2012, both Amanda and Gideon end up at a Best Buy to take advantage of the massive price cuts on electronics. When the store opens its door at midnight, the potential customers rush the glass doors and end up in a brawl. Built-up excitement turns into mass pandemonium as the police show up in riot gear. Tear gas containers are being tossed around like lollipops and strangers are beating on each other like a heavyweight fight at the MGM Grand in Vegas.

Amanda and Gideon both end up in the skywalk overlooking the madness and, even though they are complete strangers to each other, the adrenaline rush overwhelms them and they discover quick ecstasy among the chaos. After putting their clothes back on, followed by making formal introductions, they embark on a sexual journey together that re-ignites the flames in their souls. Both are forced to make choices that they never thought would have to be made; marriages are placed at risk; heartbreak is inevitable. What starts out merely as casual sex becomes much more than mere physical attraction and their lives begin to unravel. No matter how incredible something wrong can make one feel, eventually, Everything Fades Away.

Breaking the Cycle is a stunning and moving anthology of stories, each of which focuses on an aspect of domestic abuse. This powerful collection is sure to serve as a wake-up call for people either dealing with a domestic abuse situation, or those watching someone else endure it.

In the title story, Zane describes the turmoil that a young girl suffers at the hands of her stepfather. The girl and her mother plan their escape, but at the last minute the mother falters. In D.V. Bernard's "The Lonely Echoes of My Youth," readers are introduced to a young boy raising himself on the fringes of a drug-infested neigborhood. Nane Quartay's provocative story, "The Grindstone," describes a boy who witnesses a brutal murder which will have far-reaching effects on him and his family. Tracy Price-Thompson weaves a powerful tale in "The Stranger" when a woman constantly abused by her husband finds inner strength after a brutal attack.

Dywane D. Birch's "Victory Begins With Me" reflects how one woman has to struggle to get her life back to normal. Shonda Cheekes' "Silent Suffering" flips the script when a man finds himself abused by the female in his life. Newcomer J.L. Woodson's "God Does Answer Prayers" deals with a young boy fighting for his life in a hospital bed, put there by one of the people who is supposed to love him the most: a parent.

These stories capture the dangerous realities of domestic abuse, while also pointing toward the steps that need to be taken to break the cycle that perpetuates it. It is sure to serve as a rallying cry for all those who desire victory over their own victimization, and a guide for understanding the complex undercurrents that make such patterns possible.

 Pretty Melanie spied on sexy black stud Pierce at the religious retreat, and saw him and two other men gangbanging a sexy counselor in every possible hole. Now she wants him to take her innocence with that huge black weapon…and she’ll blackmail him into it if he refuses!

~~~~~ PG Excerpt ~~~~~

“I never saw anyone having sex before!” Her excited voice broke the silence first. “It was so hot!”

“You shouldn’t have been spying on us.” His deep rumble was low and cautious began to wander further away from the brightly-lit meeting hall. “It wasn’t right.”

“I know.” She flashed him a quick apologetic smile. “I didn’t mean to. But I heard Miz Keegan scream, and I thought maybe she was hurt. So I ran over to see, and…well…”

“So you peeked in the window.” He supposed that he’d have done the same, and could only thank his lucky stars that she hadn’t just burst right into the cabin.

"Uh huh. And I saw everything you were doing to her! I saw how you pushed it into her, and her eyes bugged real wide like you were splitting her apart, and then she started screaming again, and bouncing up and down on you, and begging you for more!” Melly’s words tumbled out in an excited rush as hot thrills shot through her petite body. “And those other two guys kept trying to push it in her other hole, but they couldn’t, so one shoved his thing in her mouth, and the other one juiced all over her big…”  Her hands rose to cup her tingling breasts. “And then…”

Pierce sucked in a shaky breath as remembered ecstasy warred with his rising dread. “Why are you telling me this?” he demanded.

Fresh excitement chased across her eager face. “Because I want you to do it to me, too. Right now.”

“What?” Pierce gaped down at her in horrified shock. “Melly, you can’t just… My God!”

His instinctive refusal stung, and her lips tightened in a mutinous line. “Why not? I know I’m not sexy like Miz Keegan. But I’m not that bad looking.”

“What? No! No, it’s not that at all!” His brain was reeling, and he hardly even realized what he was saying as he tried to process her incredible request. “It’s just that…” He sucked in a deep breath, and tried not to imagine the incredible thrill of spreading this innocent girl’s legs wide and plunging deep inside her. “It’s not proper for a pretty young girl to be asking that of a man. And especially not me!”

“Why, because you’re black?” She shook her head vigorously enough to set her long curls bouncing. “I don’t care about that.”

“The rest of the town would,” he replied with grim foreboding. “But it’s a lot more than that, Melly. I’m old enough to be your daddy…and I’d hurt you real bad. You saw how I’m built. I don’t do virgins. It’s too dangerous.”

“I’m not afraid.” Her small breasts rose and fell in quick little pants as she stared right at the bulge jutting up between his muscular thighs, and her tongue instinctively darted across her lips.

His lips twisted into a bitter scowl. “You should be. If I was foolish enough to do what you want, I’d put you in the hospital, no matter how careful I was. And there comes a point,” he added, curling his fingers around her chin so that she had to look back up at his troubled face, “where I’d be so horny that I just couldn’t be careful anymore.”

“I’ll tell everyone I know what I saw.” It was her trump card, but her voice shook as she made the bold threat. She didn’t want to get him in trouble…

…and he knew it.

“No, you won’t.”

“Yes, I will!” She said it more forcefully this time, and jerked her chin from his light grasp. “And they’ll believe me, because lots of the other kids were spying on you, too! We all saw how you were sticking it inside her, then juicing all over her while she bounced on those other two guys!”

Oh God, it was worse than he’d feared. Not just Melly, but who-knew how many other teenagers, as well!

Pretty Melanie blackmailed sexy black stud Pierce into popping her cherry under the town bandstand. Now she wants more—she aches to take his huge black weapon all the way inside her! Will lots of practicing with sex toys help, or will he still be too big to fill her completely?

~~~~~ PG Excerpt ~~~~~

He’d called his big weapon ‘The Baseball Bat,’ she recalled with a quick little snicker. But he hadn’t been kidding. She hadn’t actually seen it…there had been no light at all under the bandstand…but she sure had felt it when she’d slid her eager hands up and down its slippery-wet length!

And okay, her hands were small…she was small all over, especially compared to his 6’4” height and brawny shoulders. But anything she couldn’t curl her hands completely around definitely deserved to be called a baseball bat!

She’d been going absolutely crazy since then. But she’d promised to be really, really careful so no one would guess what was going on between them. So no matter how badly she’d been tempted, she hadn’t gone by his place, or even by the church, after school or on the weekends. And when she’d seen him on the street, she hadn’t flirted and batted her long eyelashes the way she might have done with a cute boy.

He hadn’t spoken to her, either, when they’d passed each other. But he’d smiled just a little, and nodded his head in greeting…and the look in his eyes had been so warm and gentle that she’d just about melted on the spot. She was so, so glad he wasn’t mad at her for blackmailing him into popping her cherry! He still liked her, and he still wanted to keep his own promise.

Tonight her folks were going to visit some friends a few towns away, and they’d be gone all night. Melly could have gone along with them, of course. But Uncle Paul and Aunt Bernie were so old that their kids had already grown up and moved away, so there was no one for her to hang with. That was why she’d opted to stay home this time…well, that was her official story. And she was sticking to it.

Pierce hadn’t even glanced down at her when her father had patted her shoulder and boasted how he wasn’t worried about leaving his baby girl at home because they lived in such a safe neighborhood. But she’d felt the heat pump off him when he’d politely excused himself, and slipped by her to go chat with another family. And she’d known that tonight would be The Night. After it got dark, he would come to her, and they’d pick up where they’d left off two weeks ago.

She was ready.
