Excerpt+Review Blog Tour: Blackwood by Celia Aaron

12:27:00 AM



I dig. It’s what I do. I’ll literally use a shovel to answer a question. Some answers, though, have been buried too deep for too long. But I’ll find those, too. And I know where to dig—the Blackwood Estate on the edge of the Mississippi Delta. Garrett Blackwood is the only thing standing between me and the truth. A broken man—one with desires that dance in the darkest part of my soul—he’s either my savior or my enemy. I’ll dig until I find all his secrets. Then I’ll run so he never finds mine. The only problem? He likes it when I run.

Author’s Note: This is a mystery/suspense romance with violence and explicit sex. Trigger warning.

“Why are your nails black sometimes?” I took a bite of the most disgusting chicken salad sandwich I’d ever tasted.

“Sheriff Crow comes to visit and all of a sudden you’re chatty?” Garrett leaned against my doorframe and watched as I struggled to eat the “mayo with a side of chicken” sandwich.

“I’ve always been chatty. Now it shows because the drugs have worn off and I’m not in agonizing pain.” I put the sandwich down and focused on the potato chips instead. “You’re the non-chatty one.”

He tossed my phone onto the bed. “Maybe that’s for a reason, Red.”

“What reason?” I picked it up and swiped across the screen. No service. Shit.

“I told you when you got here that I wanted you out.” He sighed. “That hasn’t changed.”

I dropped the phone with a grimace and picked at my sandwich. “Okay. And I told you that I can’t wait to leave, so we’re on the same page. Why would those facts keep you from telling me why your fingernails are covered in filth sometimes?”

“It’s not filth.” He shook his head. “While you’re lying around eating my delicious food all day without lifting a finger, I’m working.”

“On what?” In all the research I’d done, I never found Garrett to have any real source of income other than timber and oil royalties on the Blackwood property.

“Why do you care?” He crossed his arms over his chest, the rolled up sleeves of his shirt revealing some dark ink snaking across his skin.

“Why won’t you tell me?”

“Why does it matter?”

I crunched the salty chips. “It wouldn’t matter if you weren’t so stubborn about not wanting to tell me. Now I have to know.”

“You’re calling me stubborn?” He arched a dark eyebrow.

“I see your hearing is working fine.” I plucked out another chip.

His lip twitched, a smile trying to form but failing. “You don’t even know me.”



“He glowed under the moonlight, the silvery-yellow orb creating a halo behind him. But he was no angel.”

My first read of 2017 and I'm startin my year dark and I couldn't be more excited!

I couldn’t concentrate, so I stared into his eyes. They were familiar, even in the dark. A steely blue.

My thoughts on this book are dark, and a mystery, probably erotic, well, acually they are and most importantly, heart-stopping and edgy.

I always love a dark romance as it gives me the thrill and makes me think of possibilities of probably betrayal or of who's who behind the msytery surrounding the whole plot. It gives me vivid description and plot of killing and spilled blood, of action and deep thoughts that provokes one's mind and reactions to situation. And this book, this book gave it to me.

“I’m the fucking wolf, and I’ll eat you alive.”

Elise is an archaelogy student who will do anything to find buried treasures and secrets. But what she found in her quest to digging out the truth is Garrett, a myterious recluse with a moody attitude and an alpha personality.

“If you said ‘please’, I’d fuck you so hard that you wouldn’t be able to sit down, walk, or breathe for days without thinking of my cock inside you.”

If you're looking for a sexy, dark read, with a whole lot of perviness on the beard, then this book is definitely for you. *wink*

“You’re mine.” He moved a hand to my throat. “I won’t let you go. I can’t. I’ll destroy any man who tries to take you from me.”
