About Island Bound:
Island Bound is a sensual, contemporary romance novella,
set in Brass Island, Nigeria. It’s the story of Christy and Joshua who are on
the verge of a marriage breakdown and how they get their second chance at a
life together. Out 16 January, 2013 published by Decadent Publishing for their new African Ubuntu
line.
Blurb:
Marriage has stripped their relationship of
its thin, rose-tinted coating, and bared their monochromatic existence for what
it was. Will Joshua and Christy get a second chance this holiday season?
When Christy
Inemi-Spiff discovers that the man she vowed to love and honor has no such
feelings for her, she’s determined to cut her losses and move on with her life.
A quick, quiet divorce is all she wishes for Christmas.
However, Joshua
has other ideas. He’s not ready to walk away yet, especially when he doesn’t
understand why Christy wants out of their marriage. So he demands she agree to
spend a quiet Christmas on a remote African Island with him, hoping they can
salvage their relationship. If she still wants a divorce after these two weeks,
he will let her go. But not before he’s had his fill of her.
But
with the sparking tension between them, and the secrets behind the
disintegration of their marriage threatening to explode, will either of them
get their wish? Or will this season of good will show them what really lies at
the bottom of their hearts?

Excerpt:
“Why are you doing this?” she challenged. Her
emotions rolled, making her feel unbalanced. It had been a long three months.
And it seemed like today was only going to get worse.
“Christy, you know the reason. If you stopped long
enough and thought about it hard, in your heart, you’ll know.”
“You can stop this.” She struggled to contain her
anger. “You started this; you can end it.”
“I know, but I won’t.”
“You, you—” Enraged, she lifted a hand to slap him.
Joshua caught her hand midair, held it tight.
Before she could react, he pushed her back against the wall, pinning her to it
with his rigid body. Christy felt every bit of him, his strength, and his
physical nature that he never bothered to hide.
“I think I have the perfect answer for all your
bottled-up rage,” he said as he parted her thighs with his leg.
“Move,” she ordered, her throat dry and croaky,
betraying her increasing apprehension.
Joshua had it easy. He was a man at home with his
masculinity. She had never been able to resist him. He could have any woman he
wanted. Sometimes, she wondered if he had, especially during their separation.
She shouldn’t care if he’d been with anyone else. After all, her goal was a
divorce. Still, she couldn’t suppress the intensity of her feelings. Perhaps
her anger and hatred drove the concentration of her emotions.
“We have to get a few things sorted out first,” he
replied.
He moved closer, his body flush against hers; his
chest crushed her breasts, his thighs pressed against hers. Though she wore
cotton trousers and a tank top, all of him stroked her.
“What are you doing?” she asked as she pushed
against him.
He didn’t budge. “Just trying to relieve some of
your frustration. That’s what all your aggression has been about, isn’t it?”
“Rubbish!”
“Such vehement denial, when the evidence is so
obvious.”
Her face stung with revealing heat as warm blood
rose in her body. Mortified, she tried to move to shake him off, but only
managed to get her body even more entangled with his.
Her breathing came in short snatches. She became
more aware of Joshua, his hardness and heat.
“I hate you.” Her voice sounded strangled.
Blistering white rage swept through her.
“You lie, sweetheart.”
He lowered his head, trailing his lips against her
cheeks in a tormenting caress.
“You love me.”
