  • Minsan Pa (Filipino Novel)

Natutong mahalin ni Neena si Yuusuke noong teenagers pa lamang sila. Subalit sobra siyang nasaktan sa bigla nitong pagkawala ng walang paalam. Sa paglipas ng mga taon wala siyang naging balita rito maliban sa mga scandal nitong nababasa niya sa mga magazines. But after eleven years, Yuusuke’s back as her boss at muling pinalalambot ang puso niyang akala niya ay naging bato na pagdating sa pag-ibig.

Minsan Pa, is a wholesome Filipino Romcom

Excerpt:

Bumaling si Neena sa pinakabata sa tatlo. Tulad ng huli ay singkit din ang mga mata nito pero mas makapal ang mga kilay, mahahaba ang pilikmata at mas matangkad. Para itong modelo dahil sa porma at kaguwapuhang taglay ngunit higit sa lahat, talagang ma-awtoridad ang tindig at tiim ng mga titig nito.

Nangatog ang mga tuhod ni Neena nang mas mataman pa niya itong mapagmasdan. Habang papalapit ito ay lalong kumabog ang kanyang dibdib. Hindi siya maaring magkamali. Ito ang madalas ma-feature sa mga magazines bilang isa sa mga sucessful young men at kung anu-ano pang papuri ang itinawag ng media rito. Nakapagtapos ito ng college sa US at napapabalitang maraming babae ang nahuhumaling at nangangarap na mapansin nito.

Alam ni Neena na hindi dahil sa paghanga ang kabog ng dibdib niya ngayon. Kumakabog iyon dahil sa bumabangong galit sa kanyang puso.

“Yuusuke!” sigaw ni Neena nang lampasan siya ng lalaki na tila ni hindi man lamang siya nakilala.

Lumingon ito at tulad niya ay tila hindi rin ito makapaniwala. “Neena, is that—”

Hindi na natapos pa ni Yuusuke tanong, sinugod na niya ito ng tadyak sa sikmura. Pumaibabaw siya sa binata nang mawalan ito ng balanse at inumangan ito ng suntok sa mukha.

“Miss Salcedo, ano'ng ginagawa mo?” singhal ni Mr. Canlas bago pa man niya nasuntok ang mukha ng gulat na gulat na binata. “Hindi mo ba alam na anak 'yan ng boss mo?”

“Ano?” hindi makapaniwalang sambit ni Neena. Tumingin siya kay Yuto Satuo na nakangiti lang na nakatingin din sa kanya

Shadow Prince

Book Cover: Shadow Prince
Part of the The Flame Squad series:

On his quest for revenge, Efrain meets Kiyumi Takashi, a charming young Japanese woman and a daughter of a Japanese diplomat. He tries to push her away, because she belongs in the light, far from the dark world he lives in. Kiyumi, however, is persistent and soon breaks down his walls.

With Kiyumi at his side, Efrain thinks that he can finally put his past behind him. That is until he finds out the truth about her. Can he still love her or will he continue to walk the path of revenge?

Excerpt:

Efrain intended to head straight to the Flame Squad’s hideout, but with Kiyumi at his side, they were led to detours of all kinds. The thirty-minute drive became two hours and they were still nowhere close to their destination. They were walking deep into a park filled with happy couples and hopeful singles.

Finally, they sat down on one of the benches.

“Are you sure you don’t want one?” Kiyumi asked, pushing her plate of food closer to him.

“No, I’m good.”

Efrain watched her pierce the tempura from the disposable saucer with a fork. The sweet chili sauce dripped from the elongated piece of munchie as she brought the plastic utensil to her lips.

“Thanks for being with me today, Rain. I’ve been searching for this in months without luck. I guess you’re my lucky charm.”

Efrain glanced at the bags between them. He wasn't against driving her around, but it was embarrassing when Kiyumi dragged him from the lingerie shop to the bookstore and made him help carry all her girly manga books to the cashier. However, the joy on Kiyumi’s face as she peeked into her bag of goodies was worth it.

Unable to hold himself back any longer, Efrain reached out for the empty saucer in Kiyumi’s hand, cleared away the shopping bags, and leaned over to kiss her, deepening it when she closed her eyes and allowed him to pull her close. They were both gasping for air when he let her go and just by looking in her eyes, he could tell that they had both reached their limit. Efrain tucked a wayward strand of Kiyumi’s hair behind her ear and planted another light kiss on her lips. He gathered the bags from the ground and offered her his other hand. “I’ll drive you home.”

Kiyumi let him help her up and hold her hand all the way back to his car. But before he could enter the car, Kiyumi grabbed the hem of his shirt from behind. “I don’t want to go home. I want you to bring me to your home.”

Efrain gritted his teeth and combed his finger through his hair, frustrated. Damn it! He wanted her, but he knew that once he took her, he would no longer be able to let her go.

He looked back and used his thumb and index finger to lift Kiyumi’s chin. “Take it back now, or I no longer will care about dragging you in the dark. I’ll make you mine and never let go, even if you regret it.”

Kiyumi took his hand from her chin and placed her cheek on his open palm, and then she looked at him with determined eyes. “I wouldn’t want it any other way.”

Making Him Fall

He’s the last thing she ever wanted, but she’s the only one who makes his life exciting.

Part of the Moon Islands series:
  • Making Him Fall

Twenty-one-year-old Triste wanted nothing more than to be the crown princess of the Netherworld. She accepted her father’s condition of going to the land of the humans to find a thousand souls to be her army or one pure soul as a sacrifice. In her first week, she found a man with a pure, untainted soul. The problem was that he had a guardian angel, Cadriel, who prevents her from getting close enough to this person. There’s only one solution: kill the angel and get the human.

Unlike most angels, instead of eliminating the demon who obviously plans to taint the soul of the person he was guarding, Archangel Cadriel amused himself by only hindering this cute, inexperienced demon. He doesn’t care if she’s after his life; after all, one look and he can tell that he’s more experienced and has more skills than her. He could kill her anytime he wants. But can he?

Excerpt:

“That was close.”

Cadriel maneuvered himself in midair and smiled at the angel coming out of the blinding light with hair almost as white as his folded wings behind him.

“Agnolo, why are you here?”

Like him, Agnolo suspended himself in the air and looked him straight in the eyes. “Cadriel, the gods—”

He raised his hand to stop Agnolo. “If this is about last night, please, don’t bother. I know the rules, but I just can’t attack anyone who is defenseless, and I mean anyone.”

Agnolo smiled uncertainly. “The gods are worried that what happened to Alastair will also happen to you.”

He narrowed his eyes before shaking his head, feeling annoyed. Alastair was supposed to be Victor’s guardian angel, but after Alastair had let the demon get away with the human he was assigned to before, the gods made Cadriel takeover the guardianship of Victor.

“Tell the gods this—I have never failed them since I started working for them, so I hope they won’t start doubting me now and comparing me to Alastair. We do things differently, and the gods should know that better than anyone else. They didn’t rank me an archangel for fun, did they?”

“Cadriel! You know I can’t say something so disrespectful!”

“I know.” He smiled. Personally, he didn't see how saying what was in his mind disrespectful, but that’s just how most angels were, and Agnolo was not an exception. “Please just tell the gods not to worry, I have everything under control.”

Examining her past, she can see that heartbreaker Zane was the one person who let her true personality shine through after she dumped her good girl image and put on a façade to save her twin sister from being bullied.

Secrets and lies are uncovered as Serene makes her decision.

Excerpt:

“Oh, if it isn’t Insane Virus!” I said, doing my best to sound calm. I took a few steps across the corridor and faced Zane with a mocking smile. “Why did you come—to spread your insanity virus to everyone?”

“It’s a virus you know best, isn’t it?” he replied with a faint smile on his lips as his deep expressive eyes travelled from my face down to my breasts and stayed on my exposed legs.

I felt heat rush through my body. When I heard it unlock I stepped toward the bathroom door. But just as Adrian stepped out, Zane got hold of my wrist and pulled me close. Before I managed to push Zane away, our lips touched. His left hand tightly secured my head, while his right hand traveled from my wrist up to my shoulder. His lips continuously encouraged me to open up for him, something I was unable to resist.

I softly moaned against his mouth the moment his tongue entered and playfully touched mine. His hand once again moved from my bare shoulder to my back and pinned me to the wall, messing up my long hair. Zane continued to kiss me and didn’t let go until Adrian shyly excused himself and went off with the woman, who had stepped out into the hall with a curious look on her face

“That should prevent you from catching any more guys in your trap,” Zane said, then briskly walked away, leaving me flooded with memories and weak in the knees as I went into the bathroom and stared at my reflection.

What Took You So Long?

Milky thought she was ready for anything, but is she ready for love?

Book Cover: What Took You So Long?

​Ready to take on the world, Milky Valdez moves to Madrid to carve out a life and a career for herself, away from the stifling help of her well-meaning, affluent parents. Still young and inexperienced with men, she is shocked when she meets Luke, her handsome, womanizing neighbor, who leads a hedonistic lifestyle as a music producer.

Despite their differences, the two strike up an unlikely friendship.

Milky’s new world changes when she overhears a conversation that leads her to make a rash decision. Giving up her virginity to a friend seems like the easy option, but when she finds out what Luke has given up for her in return, she realizes just how big a risk she’s taking.

Excerpt:

“Is that why you’re waiting until you get married to have sex?”

I glared at him. “I’ve never had a boyfriend! I thought I told you that already.”

“I just find it strange. If you want to lose your virginity that much, why not...you know, use a vibrator?”

“I can’t! I tried, but just imagining the pain it would cause made me too scared.”

He laughed. “Right.” He moved out of bed and I looked away when I saw that he was only wearing a pair of boxers. He stepped toward the bathroom before looking back. “I heard some virgins say that it wasn’t that bad when they first lost it. Sure, there’s a pain, but there’s also pleasure.”

“Really?”

“That’s what I heard.”

I jumped out of bed and stopped him from closing the door, swallowing when my eyes landed on his well-sculpted abs. My eyes then traveled down to the V-shape that pointed to the secret part I had never personally seen in my life. “What?” He placed one hand on the doorjamb and the other on my chin. “Don’t tell me I’ll be the lucky guy?”

I lifted my eyes and answered him seriously. “Yes. Please take my virginity, Luke.”

The playful expression on his face vanished. He let go of my face and turned away. I heard him chuckle. “Are you still drunk or sleepy?”

“Neither. I’ve never been more sure and awake in my life!”

Luke took a deep breath and faced me with a conceited smile. “You’ll regret it.”

“Why?”

“You’ll enjoy having sex with me so much you’ll never be satisfied with someone else.”

“You’ve got it backward, Luke. You’ll have so much fun with me that you’ll lose all interest in being with other women.”

His playful look returned. “You’re on,” he said, pulling me close and pressing our lips together for the first time.
