The Suicide Princess by Anthony Bryan with Giveaway, Excerpt & Review


"Not your mother's romance, this is an erotic thriller that will leave you breathless and have you begging for more..."

Stephanie Bradford is a young, attractive, and successful District Attorney on her way to the top. She has the near-perfect life, with an amazing husband, and she has it all in the palm of her hand. When her marriage falls into a romantic rut, Stephanie is skillfully swooned by a charming, mysterious and intriguing stranger who looks to be the answer to all of her fantasies. A whirlwind and erotic affair quickly spirals out of control, and before long, she learns that things aren’t always as they appear and people are rarely who they seem. One poor decision becomes the catalyst for a series of events that rips her life apart, and Stephanie is left with nothing but the thirst for revenge against the man who viciously stole everything from her. The Suicide Princess is a sexually charged roller coaster ride where nothing is as it seems and everything is at stake!

Derrick leaned forward, inviting Stephanie to climb onto the back of his bike, and he said, "Let's roll, bad girl."

Stephanie climbed on, and she wrapped her arms around Derrick's waist as he started the engine and brought the thunderous exhaust to life.
"Oh my God, that's loud," Stephanie yelled into Derrick's ear.
"You just hang on," Derrick said before suddenly driving through the parking lot and to the main road.
Derrick drove to the highway where he immediately drifted to the left lane and rapidly accelerated the bike to well over ninety miles per hour. Stephanie let out a thrilled scream as they blew past the slower cars. Stephanie yelled, "Where are we going?" but Derrick only replied by revving the motor and driving even faster.
Derrick drove about forty-five minutes west of Boston, and he exited the highway to a secondary country road. The back road rolled through gentle hills and curves, and the forest on either side of the pavement had grown so tall, a canopy of trees completely covered them. Derrick slowed his speed down, as this wasn't a thrill ride, this was something different. This was an experience to be taken in slowly and not rushed.
Stephanie's arms wrapped tighter around Derrick's waist, and her hands rubbed against his abdomen and chest as she pressed the side of her face against his back. Stephanie closed her eyes as she felt the breeze blowing over her face, and the mixed smell of Derrick's natural odor and the fresh forest air was the most intoxicating aroma she had ever sensed.
As the afternoon was wearing on, the sky began to darken from the clouds rolling in. The air became heavy with the smell of rain as the first sprinkle appeared. Derrick pulled off to the side of the road as the rain grew steadier.
As Derrick turned off the engine, Stephanie asked, "Why are you stopping? It's raining."
"The road's going to be slick. I'm cool with risking it by myself, but not with you."
"But Derrick, we're in the middle of the woods, and it's pouring!"
Derrick got off the motorcycle, and he lifted Stephanie to help her down. "It's okay," he replied. "Follow me."
Derrick took Stephanie by the hand and he ran, pulling her behind him. He found a large tree which was filled with branches and leaves, and he led Stephanie under it.
"It's not the best, but it'll do. It won't rain long," Derrick said.
"It won't be long?" Stephanie asked. "Then I don't want to waste it."
Her long brown hair was dripping, with rain falling down her face to her lips. Derrick's hand grabbed the back of her neck, and pulled her in to kiss her deeply. Derrick stepped forward into Stephanie, causing her to step back until she was pressed against the tree. Derrick's drenched shirt was clinging to his body, and it stuck to him as Stephanie began pulling it off. Derrick pulled Stephanie in close as he was kissing her, and each press of his lips against hers felt like her very first kiss all over again.
Derrick's hands began unbuttoning Stephanie's tiny shorts, and once undone, she couldn't get them off fast enough. As the rain fell on them, Derrick lifted Stephanie off of the ground. She wrapped her legs around him, and with her back pressed against the tree, he made passionate love to her. Stephanie was overcome with emotion since this was so different from her other experiences with Derrick. This was the kind of powerful, connecting, and loving sex Stephanie had always dreamed of having. I love this man, she thought to herself but didn't dare have the courage to say out loud.
As the passing rain began to let up, Derrick stopped making love to Stephanie. He kissed her gently and she asked, "You didn't cum. Do you want me to finish you another way?"
Derrick kissed Stephanie and replied, "You didn't either."
"This time, it wasn't about cumming for me," Stephanie replied.
Derrick softly said, "It wasn't for me either."

4 1/2 stars
That was unexpected. When I started this book I didn't think Stephanie was being all that fair to her husband. Marriage is more than sex, but you have to communicate that you're unhappy in order to fix something. In my opinion, Stephanie was only thinking of herself, right here and now, not what might happen when she started her affair with Derrick. Yes, it was very hot. Sometimes, scorching hot. She made her choices and had to live with the consequences once she was found out. In the beginning of the book, Derrick was charming so that he could get to Stephanie, but quickly turned into a huge jerk. I found myself rooting for Jacob, Stephanie's husband. As for the rest, you're going to have to read it, but you won't be disappointed. This story has lots of twists, turns, lies, deception, love and some steamy sex. Ok, lots of steamy sex. For a first time author, Anthony sure made me think. I'm looking forward to reading more of his work.

Born and raised in London, UK, Anthony's hope, more than anything, is that his words can provide an escape for you, and he hopes they take you on a journey you won't soon forget. His goal is to give you something different, refreshing and unlike anything you've ever read. In a sea of authors pumping out the same cookie-cutter stories, Anthony can only try to be the one who stands out and takes you on one hell of a ride. Find your favourite reading spot, pour yourself a drink (or two) and love every second of every page he writes...After all, he writes them for you!

At 27 years old, Anthony now resides in the U.S. where he divides his time between Boston, Massachusetts and Sarasota, Florida. He served with the American military in eastern Afghanistan, and he is a combat veteran as well as an accomplished fighter training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai kickboxing. He has more tattoos than his mother would have liked, and he may not seem like the typical erotic writer - because he's not. He's different, and his work is different, so get ready to be blown away.

Throughout his entire life, even as a young child, reading has always been Anthony's escape from reality. It was a way to temporarily leave the boring monotony of day-to-day life, and it allowed him to visit far off lands, meet unusual characters, take incredible adventures, and even learn about the very edges of our universe. Being able to take his love of reading and transform it to a passion for writing has been the greatest gift he has ever been given.
