Blinded in Iraq while in the Marines, Matthew Cage never realized the key to unlocking his forever midnight world was within arm’s reach.

After a downward spiral, Matthew secluded himself in his prison of darkness, but his sister and friends helped him find his way. Having worked hard to become a Master Instructor in Close Quarters Combat, Matthew's world seems normal until tragedy strikes.

When Dawn’s life is threatened, Matthew refuses to let her deal with it alone. Can Dawn trust him to protect her? Will Matthew finally believe he can have sunshine in his world?


EXCERPT

I woke up to total darkness. I didn’t know if I was dead or alive until I tried to blink, but the pain was worse if I tried to breathe or move, so I figured I must be alive and in hell. Turns out I was right.
I wanted to fight the suffocating fear that came over me. I tried to calm my panic and assess the circumstances.
I was definitely lying in a bed. I felt buried alive. Is there a blanket over my face? Am I paralyzed? Why can’t I move? Why can’t I see or hear anything except incessant beeping?
Hot waves of pain crashed over me, reverberating through every fiber of my body. All the limbs must have been there; I felt pain fucking everywhere. Surely if I had lost some parts, they wouldn’t be hurting so much. Able to move one hand, I used it to explore. Painfully reaching up to feel my face covered with bandages, I discovered wires sticking out from it. My lips were rough and hard; they didn’t feel like lips. I could put the tip of my pinky in my partially open mouth, but then wires and braces stopped it from further exploration. Oh shit, this is going to totally suck.
I moved my hand downward to the bandages covering my chest and then over my stomach to my dick—limper than I ever remembered it being, but at least all in one piece. My entire right side was heavily bandaged, radiating with agonizing pain.
What happened to me? What the fuck happened to me, and what’s coming next?
I started to panic again, which caused the telemetry heart monitor to beep so loudly I didn’t hear the nurse come in.
“You’ll be all right.” The nurse’s hands were firm, yet gentle, as she soothed my arm tied to the bedside. “Try to relax. I’m giving you something in your IV to help you calm down.”
I escaped the only way I could, back into oblivion.

EXCERPT



My apartment building had seen better days. It was ancient and looked like it would fall apart any time. The color had worn out over the years and there were cracks here and there, but it was dearest to me anyway. It had been my home for as long as I could remember; well, it wasn’t exactly owned by us — we rented, to be specific — but I speak from the sense of belonging. The owner of the building — Mr. Marshall — had promised to repair it soon. It was a one-story building with four small apartments, two on each floor that faced each other. Our apartment was on the first floor, so, at three in the morning, I took the flight of stairs and walked up to my door soundlessly. I knew better than to wake up our neighbor. I slowly put the key into the lock and opened the door.


Hesitating for some time, I considered again whether to tell my mother about what had happened. I couldn’t hide anything from her, but the explanations would have to wait until morning. I was too tired and sad right now.


I closed the door silently behind me.


The house lights were dim but I could see the light in her bedroom. As always, she was waiting for me to return. She would be curled up in her bed, reading her favorite Nora Roberts novel. She did the same every night before going to sleep.


I headed for her room. Thankfully, I had stopped limping as the pain dissipated; she wouldn’t know anything was wrong right away.


The door was ajar.


I stepped into the room.


…And suddenly it was hard to breathe.


“Mom! Oh, dear God!”


Her lifeless body hung from the ceiling fan.


I rushed to support her feet. Although I knew the worst had happened, I hoped she was alive.


She didn’t move.


Her bare feet were cold.


Her skin, pale like never before.


I couldn’t understand why she would take such an extreme step. She was fine when I had left for work that evening.


My tears flowed freely this time.


That was when I noticed it. The letter on the nightstand.

Cover Reveal: Educate Him by Sydney Aaliyah Michelle



Title: Educate Him 
Author: Sydney Aaliyah Michelle 
Genre: Contemporary Romance BDSM Romance Professor/Student Romance 
Release Date: July 31, 2017 








Young, but no so innocence, maybe she can teach an old professor some new tricks.

Davis

I've always looked out for her, but she didn't know it.

She came back into my life and made me want what I shouldn't have.

Once she learns the truth, it will show her so much, but will she forgive me.

Julia

When everyone else in my life let me down, he made sense to me.

I returned with a plan in mind, but one night with him and plans changed.

The professor can teach me because I'm ready to learn.

Davis and Julia can't deny their attraction despite the secrets of their past. Will it bring them closer together or reveal how forbidden their love is and tear them further apart?


Educate Him is an unconventional second chance romance with BDSM elements by Sydney Aaliyah Michelle. If you enjoy a sassy, confident young woman, a smooth talking sexy professor, and a connection that reminds you why you love romance, you'll love Sydney Aaliyah Michelle's latest stand-alone HEA romance.




Her first text message made me smile. Her second made my dick hard, which made me feel like a dirty old man. It wasn't the message itself; it was the confidence she had to send it in the first place. The fiery personality at thirteen was cute and endearing. At nineteen, it was fucking sexy as hell. Hold it together, Professor. I thought about Julia over the years because the last time I saw her, it broke my fucking heart to pieces and pissed me off. I felt guilty because I knew what a prick my best friend had been to his family. I saw it daily and never had the balls to call him on it. He led and I followed him into some seedy dark places. Places his family had no clue about, places that broke up my own marriage six years ago. I was betrayed in the worst way and had no desire to have a woman on my arm. I required one in my bed on occasion. But never a student.



Sydney Aaliyah Michelle is a Contemporary Romance writer, a voracious reader, tattoo lover, and movie fanatic who hails from Texas. After surviving 5 1/2 years living in China, she had the courage to finally pursue her passion and become a writer.
She identifies the sci-fi action flick "The Matrix" as the best representation of her life in the past. She is now blessed to be awake and doing what she loves.
She can recite the entire script from the 80's teen comedy/drama "The Breakfast Club" and loves any and everything associated with the Avengers Movie, especially Tony Stark.
When it come to books, Sydney reads different genres, but some of her favorite writers are Stephen King, Alex J. Cavanaugh, J.A Huss, M. Never & Emily Bronte. Under the Dome, The Great Gatsby & Wuthering Heights are her favorite books.

Things turn around for Nate when he meets a vivacious young woman to share his life with. But as they plan their future together, clues from their past make Callie and Nate realize perhaps their meeting was not an act of destiny, but orchestrated by the government to deal with Orange's most dangerous secrets.
