His Absolute Assignment & His Absolute Betrayal (An Illicit Billionaire Love Story)


The re-release of His Absolute Assignment and His Absolute Betrayal is here! There were complications before, but everything has smoothed out now, and things appear to be going well.

The re-release includes updated covers, bonus scenes, and slightly different book descriptions! (I just added one line, but I like it and I think it makes the concept of the books pop a little more, you know?)

As a quick note, the bonus scenes are also available in the Freebies section of my website (you can get the password by signing up for my newsletter ❤ )

Anyways… without further adieu…

Elise Both

As a special limited time offer, both of these books are available for free on Amazon from February 4th to February 8th (2/4/15 – 2/8/15). (Also, February 7th is my birthday, yay)

They’re both also available to borrow for free by Kindle Unlimited subscribers!

You can get them at:

Amazon US | Amazon UK

If you’ve already read them, plus the bonus scenes, I’d really love if you would consider leaving a review, too. It helps a lot, and I appreciate it so much.

And now… (dun dun duh! Haha)

I am his absolute obsession…

Six months ago I was trapped in a library with a man who wanted to possess me. For three days, a record-breaking blizzard kept me confined with Lucent Storme, the dominating and enigmatic Director of Public Relations for Landseer Enterprises. Rumors existed of his forbidden desires and darker passions, but I didn’t believe them. I should have. For one weekend, I became Lucent’s sole obsession.

When the snow began to melt, he tried to leave me. He thought he could save me from himself, from his control. I didn’t let him. I was already his.

Six months ago my entire life changed. I never meant to fall in love–especially not with Lucent–but his allure transcended common sense and tapped into a dark, primal need inside me that I didn’t know existed. The snow melted, our lives quieted, and everything seemed to be going perfectly.

Until today.

I thought I knew Lucent, but I realize now I never really did. A mysterious calm exists even within the eye of the darkest storms. I love Lucent. I am his and he is mine. I want to believe he is a good man. After seeing another side of him, after being the object of his absolute obsession, I fear I might have fallen in love with a monster.

I may have fallen in love with a monster…

I thought I knew Lucent, but now I realize I never really did. He’s kept so many secrets from me. I fear I might have fallen in love with a monster. Worse yet, I’m afraid I’m becoming one, too…

From USA Today Bestselling Author Cerys du Lys ~

I thought I knew Lucent’s secrets. I thought I knew about his dark past and forbidden obsessions.

He likes control; a lot of it. He enjoys seeing me kneeling on the rug in front of him while he paces back and forth, planning exactly what he’ll do with me. He likes caressing my cheek with soft fingers before squeezing my jaw tight and forcing me look him in the eyes. His seductive smirk when he calls me Miss Tanner while tying me to the bed, reciting everything he’s going to do to me in intricate detail, and telling me why he’s going to do it, sends shivers through my body.

I thought that was it. I thought that was the worst of it, and in time I came to enjoy our sensual games. Lucent likes control, but he loves me. He would never hurt me.

Or so I thought.

Lucent’s dark past contains secrets darker than I ever could have imagined. Unwittingly, I’ve been lured into his world of sordid conspiracy and corporate scandal. We’re running from the law for a crime we didn’t commit, but saving ourselves isn’t as simple as just telling the truth. I don’t know what the truth is anymore.

Beneath Lucent’s fractured facade, I still feel his absolute attraction towards me. I still want to love him, and I want him to love me, too. I hope I’m making the right choice.

I hope everyone enjoys them! Have you read the bonus scenes yet? What did you think?

(Also, Book 3, His Absolute Proposal, will be coming soon! Keep an eye out for that ❤ )

There’s a monster in every closet, and I’m in yours

My name is Noah. I’m not a nice person. This isn’t cupcakes and candyland, love.

I’ll take you, break you, and offer you to the highest bidder without a second thought. You’re mine now. It’s business, nothing personal. You wouldn’t understand, and I’m not going to explain it. Sorry, love, you don’t mean a thing to me.

Just know that there’s a monster in every closet, and I’m in yours.

Author Note – This dark romance novel contains themes that may be discomforting to some people. If you are sensitive to depictions of violence, then this book is not recommended for you.

His Absolute Obsession: The Billionaire’s Paradigm (Audio Books Like Fifty Shades of Grey)


Want to get this audiobook for free?
Sign up for a 30-day free trial offer on Audible
(includes one free audiobook)
then go here to get your free copy of His Absolute Obsession

The Fifty Shades of Grey official first movie trailer comes out today! Because of that, I thought it’d be fun to do something a little different and special. I can’t quite create my own movie trailer (not yet at least…), but some of what I write is like Fifty Shades of Grey in a way, and I do have audiobooks, so…

I thought it’d be fun to create a YouTube sample of His Absolute Obsession: The Billionaire’s Paradigm!

(This is the scene when Elise first meets Lucent, before that fateful weekend they spend together trapped in the library during a record-breaking blizzard)

Trapped in a library during a blizzard, Elise finds herself stuck with the untoward magnate, Lucent Storme, who’s rumored to have more than a few forbidden desires…

What do you think? I love the narration and I think Irma Kent did a wonderful job at it. Just a little sneak peek there, but I really enjoy that scene, and it’s the start of so much more, too. Elise and Lucent are some of my favorite characters.

The rest of the audiobook is fairly long, but it’s only the beginning, too. His Absolute Obsession is over 2 hours of steamy romance, commanding intrigue, and dominant mystery. There are more audiobooks in the series, too. Can’t wait for the Fifty Shades movie to come out and want something to tide you over in the mean time? For less than the price of a movie ticket (and for more than 2 hours of romantic enjoyment) you can get His Absolute Obsession right now.

You can find His Absolute Obsession on:
Audible – His Absolute Obsession
Amazon – His Absolute Obsession
iTunes – His Absolute Obsession

The e-book version is available on Amazon, as well.

NaNoWriMo!


NaNoWriMo has started! Woo hoo!

For those who don’t know what that is, it stands for National Novel Writing Month (which is this month/November). The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel in a month, which equals about 1,667 words a day, give or take a bit depending on if you have a good day or a bad day, I guess. I usually have good days, but I can’t write every day since I have to do some other things in regards to writing, too, so it evens out. I probably get close to 60,000 words a month, generally speaking.

Anyways! For those of you who are signed up to receive my weekly newsletter, you may have seen that I’m going to do a fun event for NaNoWriMo. I’ll be tracking my writing and aiming for the 50,000 word goal, for one. But, the fun part is that I’ll be letting everyone see just what exactly I write, too.

So, the main purpose of me writing this right now is to tell you that that’ll be up and available now. You can find the secret page where you can view my writing as I do it (or see what else I’m doing) on my Freebies page here (which is up at the top there somewhere, if you click that).

And… the Freebies page is password protected, but if you’re signed up for my mailing list, you’ll have the password there. If you aren’t signed up, then you can sign up on the right sidebar over there at the top ( —–> ) and you can get the password once I send out my next newsletter.

Just as a quick reminder, everything I put on the secret NaNoWriMo page will be unpolished/before editing. Usually I write relatively clean first drafts, but this is just for a fun event, you know? I’ll be spending time editing/fixing everything up before I publish the stories, so if you want to see the difference, you can read the NaNoWriMo secret page version, then grab a copy of the published store version to see what a difference it is.

That’s about it for now. I just wanted to let everyone know that I’ve started, that they can find the page under the Freebies section on my site, and you’ll need to be a newsletter subscriber in order to see this neat and exclusive content. I hope you like it!
