Title: Into the Nothing
Series: Broken Outlaw #1
Author: BT Urruela
Release Date: June 21, 2016


Synopsis:

Xander Evans has been on the road for many years. Never settling. Always moving from one place to another, unable to let go of his past. He lived a tragic childhood, spending most of those years in foster care. He's never felt like he's had a home. That is until he stops in the small town of Truman Valley, Missouri, where he meets a woman who will change everything he's ever known.

Paige Watson has it all. A loving family, beautiful home, and a great career. The only thing she's missing....is love. After escaping an abusive relationship, she opens her heart up to a stranger. He is unlike any man she's ever met. He came into her life and turned it completely upside down. Everything is perfect. That is, until one fateful night. 

A night that would tear the Watson family apart, never to be put back together again. 

A night that would send Xander away to prison for life.

Excerpt:

"How about twenty questions?" I ask.

"I hate twenty questions."

"How about five questions, then?"

He cracks a smile and lifts an eyebrow. "How about three?"

"Deal!"

"So, have I mentioned how much I fucking hate Tuesdays?" Brandi's voice cuts right between us. Xander looks relieved.

Me? Not so much. "Damn it, Brandi!"

"What?"

"Oh nothing. Can you grab me Fireball though? Pretty please. Two of them." I look at Xander. "You're taking one."

"Three. I am too, bitch! Fuck Tuesdays!" Brandi calls out from across the bar as she begins filling the shot glasses from the Fireball chiller.

"Question one. You said you’ve been traveling for a while now, right? Do you ever get tired of it? Ever feel like settling?”

"Damn. Starting out with the heavy hitters, huh?" He eyes the shot glasses as if hoping it will somehow make them fill faster.

"Need me to go easier on you? Maybe a finger or two first before I go in with the whole fist?"

He looks at me in disbelief. "Did you really just say that?"

"Just answer the question, two fingers or three?"

Excerpt:

"He was over here for like five hours last night drinking and talking with Dad. You think I like him? My dad's in love. And the way he didn’t hesitate to put Benji in his place, I just think Dad’s got a good feeling about him."

"Shit, I've got a good feeling about him too... and it's in my panties." She laughs and motions toward her crotch. "If I had been working and saw him do that to Benji's fat ass, I would've let him fuck me right on top of the bar…and I would’ve let everyone watch."

"Brandi!"

"I'm serious. Fuck it!”

"You're ridiculous."

"Paige, don't tell me you didn't notice that anaconda stuffed into his jeans?"

"What?! What the fuck are you talking about? Anaconda? I wasn't looking at his damn jeans." I laugh, finding it hard to not to love this girl who has become like a sister to me. She's the craziest bitch I know, but she's got my back no matter what. She's had it since day one.

"Why wouldn’t you look at his jeans? That’s where his dick is!”

For your listening pleasure...In The Garden of Stones now in audio.



It is with great delight that I announce that the audio-book version of the paranormal romance In the Garden of Stones is now available from Audible.com.

Narrated by the ultra talented Steve Worsley, In the Garden of Stones tells the story of Grace Dove, a young woman with mental issues, a twice-failed suicide undergoing a new type of therapy, and Colin McLeod, a wounded soldier rendered catatonic by his severe PTSD, languishing in a military rehabilitation center. Two people damaged to the limits of their endurance. 

Seeking sanctuary from the horrors of real life, Grace and Colin find themselves brought together in a fantasy world of their own creation; they call it their Garden of Stones. There they talk out their problems, comfort and support each other, and plan their futures, although it is not plain sailing by any means. Their time in their personal paradise, however, runs concurrently with events happening in the real world. Life goes on, until Colin's is put in danger, so he withdraws entirely into the Garden to save himself. If he stays there, he will die and Grace has very little time to get him back. If she fails, both he and the Garden will be lost to her forever.

Download your copy now by visiting here and selecting the audio download box. This will take you to the Audible site and details of how to download.  

For your further enjoyment, In The Garden of Stones is also available in eBook format for your Kindle.

Please feel free to leave a review and remember that proceeds from sales of the audio-book go to support Combat Stress a military mental health charity.
