A Life Singular
A Life Singular Series Book 1
by Lorraine Pestell
Genre: Contemporary Women’s Fiction

First in Epic 7-part Serial: Love and Loss, Celebrity and Secrets

The Endless Pursuit of Love and Wisdom

What do you do when you lose the one who gave your life meaning? You write
about it. You tell the world how amazing it is to love and be loved
by someone so special, what love helps you achieve and how it makes
you stronger.
Jeff Diamond had built a life of influence, adulation and wealth by making
the right choices for the right reasons. He lived by the law of
reciprocity, a lesson learned on the streets as a teenager with
nothing but an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. Plagued by the
scars of a violent childhood, he created his vision and fought for
it. And once he no longer needed to fight for himself, he fought for others.
Yet when Jeff’s dream girl was taken from him and their children by the
ignorant act of a jealous misfit from his own home town, the
millionnaire realised just how far he had come. Why had he succeeded
when so many like him fail? It wasn’t complicated. The secret lay
in the endless pursuit of love and wisdom; life’s two magic
ingredients. Now Lynn was gone, he resolved to use his remaining days
to account for their life in a way that would inspire young people to
make his type of choice rather than García’s.
Then after their story was written, he would be free to go after her, to
begin the whole incredible journey over again. Everyone has a life
singular: one; unique; extraordinary.
A Life Found
A Life Singular Series Book 2
Writing an autobiography on behalf of someone else presented Jeff with an
interesting dilemma. Did he make assumptions about what Lynn would
have included, or should he restrict her contribution to direct
quotes from her letters and diaries? He had their kids to protect,
and her parents…
As he worked through the huge amount of material available in the press
about their life as it had taken shape, interlacing it with highly
personal stories, the widower crafted chapter after chapter of
memories, both happy and heartbreaking. If this was to be a true
account of their partnership, he owed it to the memory of his
beautiful best friend to cover so much more than what was already on
public record.
When it came to adding his own reminiscences of those early months, about
meeting someone he already knew intimately, Jeff had no difficulty in
recalling every single, vivid moment. Entire conversations came back
to him, sometimes word for word, rushing through his fingers and into
the computer.
Photographs prompted him too, as did the treasured possessions that surrounded
him, like the old leather jacket he had received on his twentieth
birthday. Lynn had left him shortly after that, just like she had
left him now. The pull of being together again was unrelenting, but
Jeff hung on to the dream that their life singular would one day
resume. Once their story had been told.
A Life Entwined
A Life Singular Series Book 3
Writing an autobiography on behalf of someone else presented Jeff with an
interesting dilemma. Did he make assumptions about what Lynn would
have included, or should he restrict her contribution to direct
quotes from her letters and diaries? He had their kids to protect,
and her parents.
Fame and fortune beckoned. Jeff Diamond was a success, whatever that
meant. Fans followed him everywhere, reporters and photographers hid
around every corner and journalists recorded his many indiscretions.
A whole different world to the downtrodden streets of Sydney’s
south-west, where vices were satisfied by using people to one’s
best advantage.
The star had more money than he could spend, his opinion suddenly
counted, and the opportunities to feed his ever-hungry mind were
plentiful. Yet the demons continued to torment him, no longer
protected by the guardian angel who had been spirited away as soon as
her family found out who Jeff Diamond was and where he had come from.
Suddenly the ambitious businessman and philanthropist found himself in the
fight of his life. He would win Lynn’s heart by showing her father
he was worthy, and by convincing his dream girl that they had
something worth fighting for. Would she risk throwing her privileged
lifestyle away for a man whose public persona depended on alcohol,
drugs and a string of pretty girls?
Jeff had nothing to lose. The trappings of his new life held little
significance until the soul-mates were reunited. This was where their
life singular really began. Up until this point, there had only been
playtime. Now they must step up and take responsibility. It was up to them.
A Life Lived
A Life Singular Series Book 4
So this was it! Lynn and Jeff, two celebrities driven to change the
world together, had grasped their life singular with both hands and
were not about to let go. They had the Midas touch, gifted through
the virtues of reciprocity and a deepening understanding of right
versus wrong.
The prospect of turning two into four, mirroring the black jetstone ring
that lived on the handsome man’s right hand, filled the couple with
excitement. Never in his wildest dreams had the no-good street kid
imagined himself as a father. His own had given him nothing. So much
less than nothing, in fact.
Should Jeff settle that score? Was it worth disturbing the paradise they had
planned, where their well-established careers showed no sign of
slowing down and their hard work yielded so much for so many?
Surfacing past wrongs and holding people to account for setting them
right were part and parcel of letting go, his dream girl had
insisted. And who was he to argue? She had been right all along.
As the book’s extraordinary chapters continued to document the
achievements of their life singular, the solitary author cried and
smiled in equal measure through the arrival of a small boy with
blond, curly hair and the sultry gipsy girl who could see inside his
soul from the moment she was born. Lynn had given him two new friends
who must now be steered through their young lives, learning their own
lessons about the endless pursuit of love and wisdom.
A Life Tested
A Life Singular Series Book 5
The world was an enormous place; full of good and evil, beauty and
ugliness, wonder and despair. Sometimes all seemed lost, returning
from the latest round of negotiations and attempting to balance the
surreal career of a chart-topping musician with the demands of an
advocate for those discarded by mainstream society. With every
problem the Diamonds worked to solve, a new one would be right around
the corner.
All was not lost, however. Unity and liberty, the
twin spirits living in two perfect beings waiting for him at home,
were all Jeff needed to spur him on. They would one day inherit the
world which he and his beautiful best friend were intent on changing
for the better, along with the millions of others who wrote to the
couple every day, seeking ever more of their energy, time and money.
The tired author kept reverting to the theme of
reciprocity. We should never take more than we give. If only they
could convince enough people of their byword… It was right that the
struggle should never end. What would he do if it did? There was no
room for self-satisfied fat cats in their life singular. What sort of
example might that set for those who must follow?
Lynn had departed, the children were growing stronger now, and the widower
heard the clock ticking night after night after night. Still with so
many amazing experiences to recount, the lost boy knew his dream girl
couldn’t wait forever. He was grateful for this opportunity to set
the record straight, but gratitude could only take him so far.
A Life Loved
A Life Singular Series Book 6
Lynn Dyson and Jeff Diamond had become the celebrity couple with the Midas
touch. With their son showing every sign of fulfilling his sporting
destiny and a teenaged daughter who was already driven to right the
world’s wrongs, they were showered with accolades and adoration
from every corner of the globe.
How had this nobody from the
wrong side of the tracks got so lucky? With his dream girl by his
side every step of the way, the superstar’s multi-faceted career
knew no bounds. Politicians clamoured for photo-opportunities, the
press hung on his every word and the success of their business empire
funnelled millions of dollars into worthy causes.
No wonder they had been an assassination target! Jeff’s autobiography
foretold this omen with twenty-twenty hindsight, his open wounds
smarting with each obvious opulent and outspoken occasion. “The
higher you climb, the harder you fall.” This tedious cliché rang
true for the father as he captured his teenagers’ many exploits for
posterity. He and Lynn had dared to scale enormous heights, paying
the ultimate price far too soon.
Had it all been worth it?
The book held these secrets, painstakingly transcribed by a man who
couldn’t wait to find out what was to come. Whether taken from his
lover’s journals, the children’s memories or the cataclysm of
poetry pouring from his lonely heart, the months leading up to his
next challenge had legitimised every decision the forever couple had
ever made.
He only hoped the same good fortune would hold true in the next lifetime.

It was now time to finish things off properly, and that began by

years. Gerry Blake had been his squash partner, his manager,
his drinking buddy and his best man through the whole incredible
journey, in so many ways his alter-ego. He was now getting

by what had happened to his old friend.

determined to give Gerry and his new wife the very best send-off,
before continuing on their own quest for reunion. Would they

#BookTour #BookSpotlight Little Heart Series by Breanna Hayse

Moving a Little Heart
Little Hearts Book 1
by Breanna Hayse
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Baylor Parish needs a fresh start. After a disastrous, loveless marriage and
an emotionally neglected childhood, she packs her things and moves to
a new house out in the desert to get away from it all and enjoy her freedom.
Unfortunately, the occupants of the house next door have other ideas.
As soon as Hayden Paterson spots her moving in, he takes over. Next, she
meets his stepbrother Jake, a cop who takes her safety far more
seriously than Baylor does herself. The last thing Baylor wants is to
get into another relationship, but the Paterson brothers rescue
people for a living, and from the moment they clap eyes on her, they
label the 23-year-old a ‘damsel in distress.’ Not only do they do
everything in their power to protect, nurture and guide her, but they
also enlist the help of their longtime friends and roommates; Terry and Matt.
Hayden and Jake come together to woo her to become a part of their unique
family. To them, she is an adult little girl in need of the love,
caring, nurturing – and yes, discipline – that only two “Daddies”
can provide. To the independent Baylor, the assumption that she is in
dire need of “Daddycare” seems not only strange, but completely
opposed to the self-sufficiency she thought she wanted.
As well as her new Daddy Hayden and Daddy Jake, Baylor also finds
herself in the care of “Uncle” Terry, a retired medic. He’s the
burly, protective “house mom” and “doctor”, who is not only
thrilled to have a little girl to care for, but likes to take control
of Baylor’s health in ways that she preferred he did not. Then
there is Matt, the resident “hippie”, who quickly becomes
Baylor’s adoring “big brother” and helps her devise ways to get
into mischief… which frequently lands her over the lap of one of
her new daddies.
Basking in the loving embrace of these four men, Baylor’s inner child
emerges, and under their sometimes stern, but always loving, care,
she not only discovers her ability to play and laugh, she also begins
to trust and feel loved. She also learns that a bottom bared for
punishment can experience intense pleasure when used in “special”
ways by one – or both – of her two men.
Despite her happiness, Baylor continues to struggle with allowing herself to
fully submit. Is this lifestyle, the one of a Little girl with two
Daddies, an Uncle and a Big Brother, right for her? Will she be able
to leave behind her loveless, uncaring past and allow her heart to be
moved to permanently reside within the arms and home of these very
special men?
This #1 Best Seller is geared towards those readers who enjoy realistic
age-play/BDSM, menage and a loving, healthy family life of a house
full of alpha males. If discipline/sensual spanking, anal, and
medical play aren’t your ‘cup of tea,’ then you haven’t read a book
like this!
Loving a Little Heart
Little Hearts Book 2
She’s got two gorgeous men, and a serious craving for chocolate…
In this, the sequel to Breanna Hayse’s best-selling ‘Moving A Little
Heart’, Baylor’s back—with double the trouble. Feisty but
vulnerable Baylor Parish is pregnant with twins, which means her two
daddies; stepbrothers Hayden and Jake; her Uncle Terry, and her big
brother Matt are even more loving and protective of their girl than usual.
About to realize their lifelong dreams of fatherhood, Jake and Hayden
decide to make their family official before the babies are born, and
soon a double wedding is on the horizon for the Paterson household. A
unique, polyamorous dynamic, however, calls for a very unique
wedding—something Baylor is only too glad to embrace. After all,
she was married before, and that traditional ceremony ended up having
disastrous consequences.
Pregnancy is a time for growth in more ways than one, and Baylor is worried
that her dynamics with Hayden and Jake will change now that they’re
going to become parents. Can she be a mother and still explore her
Little side with her two daddies? How will her changing body and high
risk pregnancy affect their BDSM routine? And what will happen when a
blast from her terrible past turns up on her doorstep?
Baylor discovers that two partners, two babies, an Uncle and a big brother
simply result in twice as much everything; double the fun, double the
worry, double the time over a strong lap, and twice as much love…
This story contains explicit content including spanking of adult women,
ménage, and ageplay. If you enjoy this material, then grab a box of
chocolate and let’s have some fun!
BDSM/AP lifestyler Breanna Hayse strives to give her readers truth and
reality of the BDSM/Age-Play/Total Power and Erotic Exchange lifestyle.
Who am I?
I’m a native Californian gone ‘wild’, and had the opportunity to travel
the globe and discover the world through the eyes of both a Marine
Intelligence specialist and a BDSM lifestyler. I left the service to
go into hospice nursing and grief counseling, eventually working as a
marriage and family therapist for those involved in alternative
lifestyle development. This experience has allowed me to gain unique
inspiration for my books and offer realistic plots and relatable
characters.
In 2004, my husband, John, and I joined forces to work with both
submissives and dominants- teaching, training, listening and loving.
Our goal was to take the mystery and fear out of the lifestyle and
mentor people in safe, consensual and healthy relationships.
My first book, The Game Plan, was published in 2012 and opened the door
to the now-booming world of Age-Play literature. Since that time,
I’ve devoted my ‘spare’ time to writing, researching, community
involvement, and private and group pro bono counseling in deviant
behavior, alternative lifestyle, and addiction recovery.
I was formally ‘dungeon trained’ as a Domme before discovering my
submissive side when I joined the service. My scenarios are pulled
primarily from either personal experience or observation, including
spending time in BDSM clubs as the safety/medical officer. My
multi-faceted background allows me to glean from many avenues and
give a unique and intelligent literary experience through elements of
fantasy and fiction. I also discuss the questions and psychology of
the lifestyle in a manner that is fun and informative, and based on
‘the real deal.’
I live with my husband, musician, and fellow-author, John Hayse, and
two border collies in southern California. We practice a 24/7 D&S
relationship with speckles of AP (and many trips to Build-A-Bear),
and happily spend every moment together that we can. My hobbies
include my puppies, hiding my vanilla salt-water taffy where John
can’t find it, exotic art, collecting inspirational trinkets, and
developing my own paddle line. You can also see me as a featured
author/instructor in professional conference settings and as a
Sexpert for kinkyliterature.com.
