Exclusive Excerpt From The Suicide Princess
One of Derrick's new friends invited him to play pool, but Derrick kindly declined, “Sorry, man. I have someone else I need to focus my attention on.”
The stranger coaxingly said, “Yeah, I'd be scared, too.”
Derrick glanced at Stephanie as she leaned in and said, “If you don't go play and kick that guy’s ass, I'm leaving you here alone.”
Derrick smiled his mischievous smile and looked to the stranger, “For money or fun?”
The stranger said, “One hundred?”
“One hundred it is, my man. Rack ‘em up,” Derrick said as he shook his new friend's hand.
Stephanie sipped her third drink as she watched Derrick easily defeat his new friend. At the end of the game, Derrick said, “Must be my lucky night! One hundred, right?”
The stranger pulled a fold of money from his pocket and began counting when Derrick continued, “No, no, no. It's cool, man. I had fun.”
The stranger said, “A bet's a bet, and I always pay up.”
“Tell you what,” said Derrick. “Let me and my girl cut in for a game on the table, and we'll call it even. That's worth more than the hundred to me.”
“It's all yours,” said the stranger while giving Derrick a pat on the back.
Derrick reached his hand out toward Stephanie, and she grasped it tightly, intertwining their fingers. She pulled in close to him and said, “I'm your girl, huh?”
“Tonight you are,” Derrick said as he shot Stephanie a wink.
“Your break,” Derrick declared as he racked the balls.
Derrick then watched as Stephanie began to shoot. He stood behind her and said, “Here put your hands like this.”
“Okay, and then what?” she asked.
Derrick pulled in close behind Stephanie as he was showing her how to correctly hold the cue. His lips were an inch from her ear, and Derrick took the opportunity to whisper “Did that get your panties wet watching me beat that guy?”
Stephanie turned back, smiled, and said, “It would have, if I was wearing any.”
Derrick reacted by sliding his hand across Stephanie's stomach and gently pulling her back into him. He simultaneously pressed himself forward, and Stephanie felt Derrick's bulge pressing into her. Stephanie could easily feel how hard Derrick was as he said, “Feel that? That's what you do to me.”
Stephanie looked around as she slid her hand down Derrick's stomach and over his crotch. She said, “I think it's time for me to leave, but I'm scared. Think you could walk me to my car?”
“It depends where your car is. This neighborhood can be awfully sketchy,” Derrick said with a mocking tone.
Stephanie told Derrick, “It's in the very dark, very secluded parking lot in the alley out back.”
Derrick replied, “Then I'm definitely not going back there. Look at what I'm wearing, I might end up getting raped back there,” as he laughed.
Stephanie started walking away and said, “Up to you. But if you do want something bad to happen, come follow me.”
Derrick watched as Stephanie took a few steps away without looking back. He looked at how her tight skirt formed beautifully around her ass, and he noticed how sexy her legs were in her red heels. It only took another step before Derrick was close in tow behind Stephanie.
The pair quickly reached the driver's side door of Stephanie's brand new white Volvo as she said, “This is me.”
Without saying a word, Derrick turned Stephanie so her back was pressed against the car door. He wrapped his right arm around her lower back, and he slid the fingers on his left hand through her hair at the nape of her neck and pulled her head in and began kissing her.
Stephanie, again trying desperately to not think of Jacob, noticed how different this kiss was compared to the kiss of her husband. Jacob's kisses were always soft, slow, gentle, and deliberate. Derrick's kiss was filled with depth and passion. The way his lips met hers and the way Derrick caressed her tongue with his set Stephanie on fire.
As they were kissing, Derrick's hand slid down and began caressing Stephanie's ass. As he felt, Derrick said, “You lied, you are wearing panties.”
Feeling the potent combination of Derrick’s powerful sexuality and the cocktails from the bar, Stephanie started opening the car door and replied, “Then get in here and punish me.”
Stephanie sat in the soft tan leather of the driver's seat, but she quickly moved herself over to the passenger's side to make room for Derrick. Derrick sat in and adjusted the seat all the way back, and the new car smell mixed with the leather interior to create a wonderful scent. The two continued their passionate kissing as Derrick's hands wandered all over Stephanie's toned, sexy body.
Stephanie started to slide over on to Derrick's lap, and she pulled her skirt up just enough so she could straddle her legs around him while facing him. Once on top of Derrick, she began unbuttoning her top, and she said, “Remember what you told me you wanted to watch the other day? That show you wanted?”
Derrick said he remembered it quite well.
“Well.....” Stephanie said as she pulled her skirt even higher revealing the front of her red, lace thong. She continued, “Just watch.”
Stephanie stared directly at Derrick as she unbuttoned her top further and pulled the front of her bra down. She revealed her perfectly shaped C-cup breasts, and she began massaging them with both hands. After a moment, only one hand remained on her breasts as she began to place two fingers in her mouth, sucking them to get them wet. Once her fingers were dripping with saliva, Stephanie slid her hand down the front of her thong, and Derrick watched as she began fingering herself under her panties.

A: My name is Anthony Bryan, and I’m a writer. I’ve been writing for almost my whole life, and a couple of years ago I began ghost writing for others – it’s basically my work with their name on it. I decided it’s time to start writing for me, and I couldn’t think of a better, more fun genre than an erotic thriller.
I was born and raised in London, U.K., but I’ve spent the bulk of my adult life in the United States. I actually served with the American military, and I served in combat operations in eastern Afghanistan. I train in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai fighting, and a perpetual black eye is part of my attire. I guess you could say I’ve been around, and I’m not the stereotypical erotic author. But that’s a good thing – I’m different, and so is what I write…
Q: So, you said you’re a writer. Tell us some of what you’ve written.
A: Unfortunately, I can’t reveal the work I did as a ghost writer because of agreements I’ve signed with the listed authors. But I’m stepping out of the shadows and into the spotlight with my debut title The Suicide Princess.
Q: The Suicide Princess? That sounds like a powerful title. Is the story behind it equally as impressive?
A: It’s even better. Imagine taking a suspenseful thriller, a contemporary romance, and the hottest erotica and slamming them all together at over one hundred miles per hour – what you’d have is The Suicide Princess. Stephanie Bradford has a near perfect husband and what looks like the perfect life. But when her marriage falls into a romantic rut, she’s skillfully swooned by a charming 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, Stephanie learns that things aren’t always as they appear, and people are rarely who they seem. One poor decision becomes the catalyst 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. It’s going to leave you begging for more!
Q: Your ARC reviews all comment on how incredibly hot this book is. Tell us more about that.
A: I know there are a lot of amazing stories out there that have little if any raw sexual appeal. And on the flip side, there are a lot of erotic stories that are smoking hot but have no story. I wanted to write something that has both. I created an incredibly hot story that will absolutely leave you wanting to grab your significant other and tear him apart. It’s a “change your panties, close the bedroom door, and get you laid,” kind of hot… but with an awesome story going on at the same time. I can’t think of a better way to write!
Q: You mentioned “raw sexual appeal” in your last response. So, speaking of which, we noticed both of your leading male characters, Derrick and Jacob, have their own sex appeal. Which of the two are you more like?
A: I think any author will admit that a part of themselves will always seep into their characters, so I guess in many ways I’m a lot like both Derrick and Jacob. Jacob, being an airline pilot and having served in a combat role in the military, has a lot of similarities to my life. But Derrick, with his cocky, funny, and charming personality, has a lot in common with my personality. They both have their own kind of sexual appeal, and since they’re so different from one another, Stephanie is completely torn between them. To be perfectly honest, I think I’m equal parts Derrick and Jacob. Jacob is my nice side, and Derrick is my bad-boy side.
Q: Ok, before we start asking about your bad-boy side, we need to change the subject fast! Tell us how you started writing.
A: When I first came home from Afghanistan, I was kind of in a dark place. I had a hard time adjusting to what I had been through, and I was just “lost,” for lack of a better word. But I started writing about my experiences there, my feelings, and my emotions, and I started feeling better. It didn’t take long for writing to become my “safe place.” I could go there any time I wanted, and I just loved the stories I was creating. It took a while, but eventually I started sharing what I was writing, and everything just grew from there.
Q: Wow! That is an amazing story and very deep - thank you so much for serving for us. So, you’re a fighter/soldier turned writer with a British accent and an amazing imagination. Thanks so much for doing this interview, and we can’t wait for your book to be released.
A: You’re so welcome, for both, and The Suicide Princess will be out on November 5, 2013. Visit my website at www.AnthonyBryanAuthor.com, and there are links there to follow me on Facebook and Goodreads.
