The mess begins with a broken egg.

And it continues with his neighbor being murdered.

Her Sister's Fiancé - Book #1

***This is my original work, and if anyone decides to steal it and post it anywhere else without specific permission, I will not hesitate to take legal action against you!!!!***A girl to take home to one's mother with no fear of sharp disapproval. Sure, she was plain and dull, but she was the sort one could settle down with in a few years after the sowing of the wild oats was completed. . .if one could get past how plain and ordinary she was that is. In truth, Lady Lavinia Antrucha was nothing compared to her sister, Cassandra. She had neither beauty nor social notoriety. . .but at least she didn't leave a trail of broken hearts behind her. She's the one people go to when they're in trouble and don't know what to do, the one who is supposed to be the stronger of the two Antrucha girls, the one her parents expect will stay with them for the rest of their lives, because what man would want to marry plain, little Lavinia? The most sought after bachelor in all of Scotland, the life of any given party, that's what they named Laird Ethan Brodi. He was the toast of high society and the man every mother yearned to see on their doorstep, asking to see their fine daughter. He knew there was something more to life than petty women who couldn't see past his fine physique, and he intended to find it; that is, until his father decided he had spent enough time unmarried and forged an alliance with the rich Antruchas by promising him in marriage to the eldest daughter who would certainly match Ethan in good looks and fine tastes. As far as Ethan was concerned, Lady Cassandra Antrucha could take a long walk off a short pier, but his father's word was law, and so to England he must go to meet his future bride. Can he go through with a marriage when his heart yearns for another?#Wattys2016

The wolf and the boy (Sterek) - A Teen Wolf fanfic

Okay I just finished writing my Teen Wolf fanfic and the trailer of the season 5B comes out, I am beyond happy that's why I decided to start uploading my story ^^This story takes place a while after the events of the season 5A, it begins with the final battle against Theo and marks the return of Derek. Many other characters make a return as well along the story as a new enemy appears and tries yo wipe out the pack. They have to solve their internal problems in order to be able to fight this new threat. Along the way, some characters find love in those who didn't imagine they would.I didn't involved a lot with the series events because I don't have a clue about how they are going to solve it in the show, so I decided to go the easy way and make Theo go away. It's a shame he's so hot and so evil, I hate him even more for that.This is my second attempt in making a story and hopefully someone will someday see it ^^
