4.64Fate is a funny thing. A random stranger Chen Yi kissed to piss off her ex turned out to be the CEO of the Li Corporations? Chen Yi, the girl with impeccable beauty that could trample the heavens and devastate earth-eyes like dark shimmering brown gemstones, hair like a cascade of chocolate brown color. Skin pale like snow. Features delicate and flawless like a porcelain doll. Abandoned and wronged by her family, cheated by her ex, betrayed by her cousin... Sounds usual, doesn't it? But things take an exciting turn when a certain CEO appears a at her doorstep with a contract in his hands. "It's your choice. Either pay for the losses caused by you or sign this contract and become my wife." One kiss and she was bound with the formidable CEO for her life. -Sneak peek into a chapter- "Mr. Li, could you exclude the term of the conjugal relationship between the married couple?" Li Luxian was momentarily surprised to hear that. Then the mischievous smile returned to his lips. "May I ask why? Could it be you don't find my body attractive enough?" Chen Yi was speechless. Of course, he was attractive. He was simply a god for his looks. Did he even need to ask that? But he couldn't expect her to sleep with him right after the marriage. They needed to familiarize themselves with each other first. That was a common-sense everyone with a relationship experience would know! Unless this impossible man had never been in a relationship before. Chen Yi looked at him. Could it be really so? Just what in seven hells Chen Yi was getting her into! Oh well, it's not like she had a choice. "It's not about that..." Chen Yi coughed. She didn't know what to say to this man. To moisten her dry throat she picked up a glass of water and chucked it down. "Not that? Could it be that you are worried that I wouldn't be able to pleasure you well enough?" With a raised eyebrow Li Luxian asked. Chen Yi spit out everything in her mouth. He did not just say that! "And if you are still worried then we could always try out something so that you could confirm beforehand that I am good enough" Li Luxian rose up from the chair. Chen Yi almost fell out of her chair. This was not happening! At least take your secretary in consideration who is still standing here!!! "Mr. Li I'll take my leave then." Secretary Zhang bowed with a stiff face and proceeded to leave her alone with his boss to give his boss some privacy to certify his skills. -End of sneak peek' Status: Ongoing.

4.69While attending his brother's funeral, Neil Mo noticed the little girl, sitting quietly alone with both hands hugging her knees tightly. The little girl had only lost both her parents. But in a room was full of people, no one seemed to pay attention to her. --- "Grandma, I don't want to live away from my daddy and mommy... I know that I won't get to see them again...

4.75This is the first edition of my Chance Encounter Book Series. (No minors allowed, read at your own risk.) This is a kind of slow-paced novel. So if it's not your cup of tea, you're free to skip this. But for those who stayed despite my warning, this Author will be forever grateful to you. Now let's go to the story. *** She was the daughter of the leader of the League of Mercenaries. She was an S-Class Level Assassin and was on a league of her own. As the future successor of the Organization, she was raised to be ruthless and merciless at the very young age of five. Her future was already laid out in front of her. Little did the people around her know, she never wanted all of this. She never wanted to take the lives of people, innocent or not. Yes, she might have been trained hard to have a heart as hard as diamond but deep inside, her soul and conscience were screaming for her to do the right thing. On the day before her eighteenth birthday, she asked her freedom from her parents. Her parents was against her plea for freedom as the only way to attain it was the most painful and cruel way... Death. They had struggled and did everything to be on top of the heirarchy just to protect their most precious jewel. Their beloved daughter Anastasia or Sia in the Mercenary's World. But Ana was determined to free herself. Therefore, she took the drug that she developed inside her laboratory for years without anyone's knowledge just for this day. She is willing to die just to gain her freedom. Why? Because she knew that when she came back from the dead, a new life awaits her. *** He was a nobody but became the owner of a Multi-billion dollar business empire in a span of six years. Because of this, he was labeled as a Monster in the Business World and was feared by many because of his ruthlessness and tyranny towards his enemies and competitors. His subordinates called him Satan which he didn't mind. Despite his success, he felt lonely inside. He had been in great sadness and pain and had drowned himself on work just to forget the woman who was responsible for what he became. Because of her, he despised women and treated them as his toys and just to warm his bed. The quote that said 'Changing women just like changing his clothes' perfectly described his current set-up. He'd rather be bad than give his dumb heart a chance to fall in love again. What will happen if their two paths crossed? Will she found the freedom she had been looking for after her death? Will he kept his vow to never fell in love in his lifetime? *** Feel free to talk to me on discord: OrieNovel#9306 The photo on my book cover is not mine. Credits to the rightful owner.

His gaze remained unwaveringly on her's while Her voice broke and tears began to slide down her face. "W-why do I feel bothered?

" she asked exasperated, and began to wipe her face with her palm obsessively. At her sixth wipe, Asher stopped her and drew her towards him, staring at her with this odd gleam in his eyes. His cold, smooth hands cupped her cheek and rubbed away a hot tear with his thumb. "Nothing is wrong with you" He assured her, his thumb caressing her cheek while his eyes fixed on her's intent. He was just conflicted, was it right to confess the truth to her now? All this time, he's been careful, what would happen if he becomes careless for once?

4.87She was the Princess who had to die… Alinea, beloved Princess of Ritz, and celebrated heroine of the recently concluded Immortal War was betrayed and killed for political reasons. However, death did not come. She found herself waking up in modern-day Tokyo, in the body of a girl, named, Suzuki Ara, the most hated antagonist of all. He was the Prince who had to live… Homura Ryuu, heir of the most influential family in Japan was forced to be engaged to Ara since birth, due to a family curse. He could only marry and have children with the woman mentioned in the prophecy, else his bloodline would die out. Fated… The Prince and Princess from different worlds, where revenge, hatred, conspiracy and strive for power prevailed, found each other in the most unexpected turn of events. Was this a coincidence? Maybe not. For two souls destined for each other meet regardless of time and circumstance. It's called fate... PLEASE DO NOT SPAM THIS BOOK. I REQUEST FOR EVERYONE TO SHOW RESPECT & AVOID EXP REVIEWS. ============================= Ara elbowed Ryuu in the rib. "Darling, you are scaring the people away. Learn how to smile." "Darling, if I smile, they will totally forget why they exist," Ryuu countered smugly, so Ara had no choice but to sigh in defeat. There's no sense making sense with this stubborn husky anyway. Well, he kind of had a point anyway… Ara looked towards the nurse's station where nurses kept bumping into each other or hitting the tables and making things fall because they were busy giving Ryuu demure glances. "See? They get distracted like that with me not smiling – what more if I do?"Ryuu told her with amusement in his voice. Then again, mischief danced in his blue gaze and he finally sent one bright smile the nurses' way. CRASH! BANG! Ara watched as chaos ensued in the station and she quickly pulled the naughty husky to the side and gave him a glare. "What? Who told me to smile?" he asked her innocently. "I did okay? It's my fault," Ara told him as she dragged him away. ============= Join Alinea's discord: https://discord.gg/Vv7uPrN follow me on IG: @schreient_rui FRENCH VERSION AVAILABLE here.

4.71Pinning her tall body against the hard wall, he looked into her beautiful emerald green eyes as he spoke in a deep voice, "I have two options for you," his body came closer to hers as he continued, "Be my girlfriend. Or," his lips turned into a sly smile as he whispered close to her ear, "Be my boyfriend." He even dared to wink right before her as his dark orbs glinted amusingly. ----- There are plenty of things that break not just a heart but a person as a whole. Some people get broken by love and some by family. But she was broken by life itself. She left her clan to discover the world but she forgot something her grandfather once told her, 'The world outside is a scary place. It's filled with people who would want to befriend you only to devour you alive. People like us are an anomaly. And the world calls us monsters but they forget; they are also the monsters wearing a mask of an angel.' To grow stronger, she seized as much power as she could by Ruling Europe under the disguise of a man- Lord Alev Knight. But now, she's forced to come back to China where she buried her memories along with herself over a decade ago. What will happen when those buried painful memories will come to haunt her again. Will she choose the path to destroy the people who betrayed her or someone will alter her idea of revenge? And what exactly pushed her to live with multiple identities? What made her disguise herself as a man? Will she be able to find the hidden truths of her own existence? Or she'll be buried herself with those truths? Xiao Zhiren left China when he was a teenager. Now, he's back in China to find the answers that were left unknown as he watched his mother being murdered before him. Will he be able to find the enemies wearing the masks of friends? Or he'll have to wear a mask himself? 'I can conceive death but betrayal is not allowed.' She had left those words behind for him. Will he be able to find the person who left him with a promise to come back? Or like every promise, he'll be forced to believe that promises are only made to break you? ---------- Side Note: This book is actually a standalone book.

4.96Can a royal Romeo and Juliet find their happy ending? Ayleth, Princess of Zenithra, is secretly trained in hand-to-hand combat, and collects swear words she doesn't know how to use. During the Festival of Peace, in which every royal son on the continent will be at the castle for a month, she is instructed by her parents to find a husband. Yet, Ayleth has never even been kissed—until the very first ball, when she meets the man in the Lion mask. Etan is a seasoned warrior, and the Prince of Summitras. He attends the Festival hoping to find a powerful wife who will help him conquer the dark sorcery of their bloodsworn enemies, the Kingdom of Zenithra. But at the very first ball, he discovers the masked woman who captures his heart is the Heir to the evil empire. Ayleth and Etan face an impossible battle. Will their love survive? Or will their parents' dark dealings keep them apart forever? [Mature content. No sexual violence.] ****** “You…” She stepped back. Then back again, her mouth dropped open. “You… You cannot be…” “I am,” Etan said, and his hair raked back as he pushed his mask off his handsome face. So handsome her heart raced. His hair was ebony black, his skin a warm brown that threatened to fade in in the winter months. He stared at her with glittering green eyes, over high cheekbones and a noble nose, his jaw tight and shadowed this late in the day. His chin was high over the pillar of his neck that she’d just touched with its hard lines and steel strength, so different to her own. And his chest... She gasped and covered her eyes. She’d humiliated herself revealing her stupid, childish curiosity. “No, Ayleth. This changes nothing.” “How can you say that? It changes everything!” She was horrified to realize she was crying. “Ayleth, please.” His voice cracked on the plea and she stared at him, shoving her mask up and off, despite how it would pull her hair out of the beautiful twist the maid had managed for her. His eyes locked on hers and she couldn’t think. She couldn’t breathe. She had met her One. And he was the son of her bloodsworn enemy. She stared at him as he stepped forward again, offering both hands, palm up. “Touch me,” he whispered. “Hold my hands. This is real, Ayleth. I don’t know how it happened, but this is real. Please don’t deny it.” She couldn’t resist. She raised a trembling hand to his cheek, letting her palm catch on the scruff of his jaw. He blew out a breath and put his hand over hers, and that jolt that happened whenever they touched shivered through her again. “Please, Ayleth.” “I cannot deny it,” she whispered.

She took a bite and started to eat. She looked at him and slowly said, "It's probably a bit late but, hi I'm your new neighbour April Jones." "Hi April, I'm Dean Davis." He reached out his and so did she, they shook as they greeted each other. "Nice to meet you, Dean." She smiled at him and then took a bite of her pancake. However, she missed the look in Deans eyes. He, at this moment, was full of happiness like a teenage boy in love. Hearing her finally say his name was the most soothing sound to his ears. It sounded so sweet, so soft, he was greedy for more. In a good mood, he continued eating all the food she cooked. What made his heart softened more was he actually wanted to hold her small hand again and never let go. Thinking of it, he swore inside, he'll never let her go. _______________________________________________ Instagram alexia_author Discord Channel https://discord.gg/VeHkknJ6A2 Mature content 18+ only Cover art is not mine, will take it down on request.
4.76...Sneak Peek into a chapter... "Don't play with fire, President Jing." His eyes darkened; the temperature in the room dropped drastically. It was a warning. However, Jing Lihua cherry red lips merely curled up into a smile. "What if I want to play with fire, President Li?" "Woman, do you not see your position? You are pinned down by me. Yet you still dare to act so frivolously? If you do not have any intention to finish things, you better not start them!" Li Zhiqiang's eyes were cold as frozen ice. "Otherwise, I will make you regret." "President Li." Jing Lihua's sweet voice again assaulted his ears. "What if I want you to make me regret?" ...End of Sneak Peek... Flesh made of translucent ice, bones made of precious gems... Jing Lihua, the eldest miss of the aristocratic Jing family, was a classic beauty with a tragic end. Stabbed in the back by those closest to her, betrayed by those she put her utmost trust, forsaken by those for whom she sacrificed herself; years of harshness taught her a lot. So when events take a turn and she is allowed to reincarnate seven years back on her marriage night, when everything was still in her hands, when everything had just started to take turns, she is determined to change the course of things... She is determined to protect those who were true to her and at the same time... ruin those who had the demons in their hearts. However, things take an interesting turn when she discovers new secrets left uncovered in her previous life. A formidable man named 'President Li', the young master of the prestigious 'Li' family known as the great 'Devil' in the mortal world appears in her life and sends her plans into chaos... Author Note: The First 20 chapters are rewritten by me. So they are good to go. After that for the next fort chapter, quality drops a bit. Then it gradually returns to best. Bear with it for a while. I'm in the process of editing. Discord: https://discord.gg/G6QZpBt

Her throat was as dry as the desert, she needed water. In the near distance, Vyrena could hear the sound of moving water. Gathering all of her strength, she crawled inch by inch towards the water source. Upon reaching the riverbank, she quenched her thirst greedily. It tasted clear and refreshing, a good sign. She could feel the dirt and grime that covered her entire body. Unable to bear it anymore, Vyrena dunked herself into the water. The cool refreshing feel of the river water jolted her senses. As she emerged from the water, she could finally open her eyes and take in her surroundings. -How did I end up here?- she thought to herself. She tried to remember what she could. Memories flashed through her mind. - I died - The realisation shocked her to the core. Her eyes were wide open. Recalling the details made her head spin. She recalled drinking a substance and laying down in her bed. A familiar hand held onto hers, his words echoed in her mind. -I'm here for you. I'm here for you.- But as soon as that memory faded, new memories from the host body bombarded her. When the recollection of memories was complete, a voice popped up in her mind. _____________________________________________________________ I hope you enjoy the story!
