Catch Me Twice Cover Reveal

It’s cover reveal day! I’m in love with this cover by the amazing Jay Aheer from Simply Defined Art. It captures the emotional depth of the story so well. Jay is truly a genius when it comes to visually portraying the content of a book.

Catch Me Twice is a second chance romance that deals with betrayal, cheating, and the painful but empowering journey of forgiveness. Jake is every bit the alpha male you’d normally find in my books. If you’re familiar with my stories, you’ll also know I like to push the boundaries. Jake’s behavior is unconventional, downright questionable, and he doesn’t always play nice. But he grovels beautifully.

Catch Me Twice (A Standalone Novel)
If a man tells you he’s no good for you, best heed the warning. I learned the hard way. I had Jake Basson’s baby. He left to chase his dream. Now he’s back, demanding a second chance, but why should I give him anything after four years of nothing? No correspondence, no news. I finally have my life back on track. Jake has never been uncomplicated. He never follows the rules. I should’ve known he’d play dirty in his war to win me back. He caught me once. I’m not going to let him catch me twice.

Catch Me Twice is coming soon!

A Second Chance Standalone Romance

I’m so excited to share my new second chance romance with you! This is a standalone novel and there’s no cliffhanger.

Please scroll down for the book bloggers cover reveal and / or release blitz signup, read-an-excerpt, and pre-order links. I strongly advise that you read the excerpt before ordering to get a feel of the story. This is not a dark romance per se, but the story includes dark elements, especially in terms of Jake’s behavior, but if you’re familiar with my novels, his controversial actions shouldn’t shock you (too much). 🙂

This is a story of heartache, emotional pain, and the bravery of forgiveness. The theme was inspired by a real-life couple who touched me profoundly with their struggle for love, but everything about this story is fictional. I hope you’ll enjoy Kristi and Jake’s story as much as the joy I got from writing it.

Release Date: 24 September 2019

Beauty in the Broken is live!

Beauty in the Broken is now available!

I’m blown away by all the wonderful comments and reviews. Here are a few of my favorites:

“A little masterpiece.”
“Explosive, intense, disturbing, passionate and oh so freakish good you’ll be staying up late reading.”
“It will resonate long after you have read the last word.”
“Pauls’ writing is flawless as always, rich but never pompous, direct despite her use of allegory and the poetic images she manages to evoke with her enviable use of words.”
“Angelina is the most complex, well-rounded character Charmaine Pauls has ever created.”
“Beauty in the Broken is Charmaine Pauls’ BEST so far.”

At 415 pages, this one is a biggie, two books in one, but didn’t want to split it in two. The ending is conclusive and there are no loose ends. I’m hoping to write another novel in The Diamond Magnate series in the near future. The book is very dark, but I promise there is light at the end. 🙂 

A big thank you to all of you for your wonderful support. This story wouldn’t have happened without you! 

If you haven’t read it yet and would like to give it a go, step into the diamond world of South Africa, and get ready for a crazy, wild ride.

BEAUTY IN THE BROKEN (A Diamond Magnate Novel)
Six years ago, Harold Dalton framed me for theft and sent me to jail to steal my diamond discovery. He gave his daughter to Jack Clarke in exchange for the excavation rights. Today, I’m walking free, and I’m coming for him with a vengeance. Six years of cruelty make beasts out of men. I’m going to take back what he stole from me, and more. I’m not interested in his properties or shares. I don’t want his small change. I want his biggest asset. Beautiful, mentally unstable, Angelina Dalton-Clarke.

Worth billions, she’s the wealthiest widow in the country, and also the craziest. Her self-harming tendencies had Jack declare her incompetent before he put a gun to his head and blew out his brains. Lina isn’t allowed to touch a cent of her riches. Her father manages her finances. He has all the signing power. As her husband, that chore will fall to me. But if she thinks I only want her for her money, she’s sadly mistaken.

* This book is a stand-alone. No cliffhangers. Trigger warning: Contains violence and abuse that may upset sensitive readers.

Cover Reveal – Beauty in the Broken

I’m over-the-moon excited to share the cover for Beauty in the Broken with you. A huge thank you to Jay Aheer from Simply Defined Art for doing such an amazing job.

Zavir is a guardian. He’s the best the Krinar has. His assigned vocation is to uncover the Resistance movements popping up around the earth, and eliminate them. New information about a fast-growing Resistance camp sends him to Costa Rica, home of the largest Krinar Center. His informant is a human girl.

When the time comes to wipe out the secret organization, his pretty, innocent little mole will learn the truth. She made a deal with the devil, and the price is something far more tantalizing than information.

»Die Geschichte von Valentina & Gabriel ist eine der besten dunklen Liebesromane, die ich je gelesen habe! Valentina und Gabriel sind zusammen magisch, ihre Chemie ist vulkanisch.« New York Times & Internationale Bestsellerautorin Anna Zaires

Ich bin ein Kredithai. Leuten Knochen zu brechen, liegt mir im Blut. Die Haynes sollten ein einfacher Job sein. Reingehen und zweimal abdrücken. Eine Kugel für Charlie, eine für seine Schwester. Aber als ich Valentina sah, wollte ich sie. Nur in unserer Welt bekommen diejenigen, die uns etwas schulden, keine zweite Chance. Meine Mutter wird sie auf keinen Fall am Leben lassen. Also habe ich mir einen Plan ausgedacht, um sie zu behalten.

Er ist verdorben.
Er ist unmoralisch.
Er ist zweifelhaft.

Er ist perfekt.
Genau wie sie.
