Mistakenly Eaten
Updated at Jul 16, 2024, 07:02
You have probably heard about Love at first sight but have you heard about love at first bite? Meet Nicholas Santiago, a heart broken, shattered and drowned in depression billionaire, sent to a private estate island by his parents. Not in exile but in the attempt to help him get over the girl that left him at the altar. But even on the island all he does is talk about the food he had with Cheryl, particularly a pasta that they had together in Gragnano, which made him propose to Cheryl. Hoping that having that pasta once again in a different situation might help him, Nicholas's cousin Salvador, sets out to hunt for that very particular pasta and its chef. And then there is Althea Ferrara, an aspiring chef, forced by her conditions to work as a waitress at her uncle's restaurant in Gragnano, Campania, Italy. Although she is forbidden to even enter the kitchen, yet she still cooks at the restaurant in secret in the hopes that one day her food might be tasted by a recruiter from a Secret Chef Hunting Competition and she might get to live her dream of competing and becoming a sous chef. Life has beaten her up pretty badly but she had not given up her hopes on life, well mostly because she doesn't know that her third year's rejection letter from the Secret Chef Hunters' society has arrived but is hidden by her friends. When Salva lands in Gragnano, he hunts Althea down and thinking that he is a recruiter from The Secret Chefs' society, she ends up traveling with him all the way to Nicholas's private island. But keeping her at the island, would take more than just a mere lie, a mere set up and of course, an entire fake cooking competition. But above all, keeping Althea on the island, could cost Nicholas a lot - maybe, his wounded heart? ********* This is the forth book in the Mistakenly Series and could be read as a stand alone novel as well.

Resisting The Billionaire
Updated at May 31, 2024, 10:46
“I hate you! You’re a liar!” Diana screamed on top of her lungs, tears streamed down her face, with smudges of her mascara staining her cheeks. “I would rather die than to ever marry you!” She screamed yet once again, pushing past Adrian, on her way out to walk away from him. But the vicious man was quick. Adrian grabbed her arm and yanked her back into his arms. His actions were rough and as he pulled Diana back, their gaze collided. Nothing but loath, hurt and pain seethed between them as they looked at each other. Grabbing her face, Adrian squeezed Diana’s cheeks between his thumb and fingers, exhibiting his aggravation back at her. Diana may had been vocal with her hate but Adrian was more physical and violent when it came to expressing. Diana placed a hand against Adrian’s chest while her other hand tried to free herself off the monster’s touch but Adrian didn’t budge. In fact, the arm that he held, he moved it around Diana’s back and twisted and squished it hard, burning her skin and twirling her bones like mere twigs. Diana winced in pain, as her tears continued to run down her face. “I don’t care how loud you scream or cry but you will marry me.” Adrian declared, snarling through his gritted teeth. Diana closed her eyes, feeling the weight of Adrian’s words. She held her breath, as she stated her next words solemnly. She opened her eyes and stared death right back into Adrian’s stare. “As I said, i would rather die, so kill me you fu(k*r” Adrian tightened his hold over Diana’s face and arm, amused to see that her confidence had not been shaken. The vixen had indeed changed a lot. She would whimper and fall flimsily whenever Adrian would raise his voice even to the slightest in their past. But things had changed, Diana was no longer a fainting goat, in fact; she was roaring high like a lioness, claiming that she would no longer tolerate the billionaire's tyranny. Though, she may have become a roaring animal to Adrian she was still a mere prey. She may have developed claws to protect herself but Adrian had fangs, that he used to masticate his preys and eat them alive. A gruesome smirk appeared on Adrian's face, as he pulled Diana closer and brought her nose to touch his. He hissed with venom snarling out of his voice. "Trust me, if killing you was an option, I would not be tolerating you." Diana tried to move her face away but couldn't due to Adrian's intense grip. It hurt her heart and her soul, to know the man that she loved with all her might, hated her and all that he showed her was one big deception. "But you are more worth to me alive than you would be dead. So, count yourself lucky." Piercing Diana's soul with his words, Adrian threw her back on the floor. Diana winced in pain, as her hands felt the impact of her fall, that she used to protect her face from hitting the cold hard ground. "Take her away and keep her locked up in her room, until I order otherwise." Adrian instructed to his house maids, who stood watching the whole commotion. One order from their master and two maids stepped ahead, grabbing Diana with both of her arms and pulled her up. "No... let go off me." Diana protested against the two but they only tightened their grip on her arms and dragged her out of Adrian's office and up towards the bedroom where she were to be locked up. "I hate you." Turning around she spat back at Adrian once again, who held a begrudging look in his eyes, as he stared back at the woman that he loved with every single fiber of his might. To see her hate him definitely scathed Adrian's heart but he was not going to show the slightest sense of mercy to her. Diana on the other hand continued to spat her hate at Adrian. "I would never give in to your oppression and I would fight you and resist you, until the day I die!" **** To break Diana's heart and to deceive her was something that Adrian was quite familiar with. He had done it before, when he had deceived Diana and left her feeling used and miserable. So, she ran away and built walls around her, determined to never allow anybody in to her life. But when Adrian shows up, ten years later, he brings down the stars, only to make Diana believe that he loves her. But when Diana finally starts to trust him and falls harder than before, her heart is shattered to learn the reality that yet once again Adrian was only using her. It might be easy for Diana to hate him but not for Adrian, who has fallen hard for Diana, as he realized how valuable and lovable she is. Call him selfish but he wants her. She wants to break free from him and run away but she is nothing compared to the most powerful man in New York. She would spend every single energy in her body to resist the vicious Billionaire, who is determined to make her his and marry her. How will love ever bloom in such animosity?

"Listen and listen very closely..." Henry ran his tongue over his sweet rosy lips, glistening them with moisture that made Emilia hold her breath back. She tried her best to not to be intimated by the man, but Henry knew better and he also knew the kind of the impact he had on Emilia. Placing his hand over her back, he pulled her closer, pressing her chest tightly against his, making her heart beat louder. She gulped hard, as she felt his stingy, minty breath fanning her face. "I don't like to repeat my words but with you, I would like to do and repeat a lot of things over and over again..." leaning closer to her ear and rubbing his nose deliberately over her ear lobe, he whispered the last words more softly, making them sound steamy and suggestive. He let go off a small laughter, that fanned Emilia's neck, a spot that was ticklish which he was well aware of. Emilia squirmed away from his touch and looked him in the eye, acting strong and tough. But Henry was a man of great wits, who was able to see right through Emilia right away. "What do you want, just say it and..." "I just want to let you know Emilia, that I know what you have done but you also know who I am and what I am capable of and we don't want people to know our truths, now do we?

A job – that would make her cross paths with her boss and crush, in a way she had never imagined. Being a suave, playboy billionaire, Henry Miller carries a façade as the CEO of a gossip magazine, pretending to be careless but deep down, he carries a secret; a secret that if revealed, would cost him more than just a company and a rank. Dive in to the mysteriously fun world of Emilia and Henry, together as they form one hell of an uncanny bond, that would make you wanting for more.

"I get to have you every night, anyway I want... Isn't it ironic? Don't you think it's wrong?" He whispered softly, still hovering above her, an indefinite image of his silhouette was visible to her eyes through the darkness. A small smile playing over his lips became evident as his chiseled jawline sparkled against the light he flickered to burn his cigarette. "No! You get to have my body, not me." she answered in her usual stern manner. His jaw clenched. One thing he didn't like was her stubbornness that never dissolved. He held her wrists tightly above her head, "So be it!" _____________ "I'm tired to this, I need a name... I can't do this anymore." She cried in protest, studying his tall figure, that stood facing the mirror. He paused for a moment, his gaze going on the girl's reflection in the mirror.

You know exactly what this is, don't demand names from me." _____________ Secret meetings, illicit deals, whispers in bedroom, gasps against steamed walls, indecent proposals, screams of horrors, acceptance of faith, conflict of desire, cries and whimpers of defeat, struggles of vengeance, defending name, protecting family, a struggle to survive, fight for love and a run to find life and purpose.

So don't get on my nerves before I decide to change my mind.", He said out loud glaring directly into my eyes.
