Stories from Beauville #1
Tigris Eden
Releasing May 19th, 2015

Compromise is a word Annabelle Macon knows well. Sacrifices at home, in college and with her career, have all given her the tools to be the person she is. Now it seems she must also make concessions for her long-time love, Jackson Storme.

Six months into their relationship, and he’s already making unrealistic demands. With distance putting that much more of a strain on their relationship, how are the two ever going to manage?

Old insecurities have a way of resurfacing, making Anna feel less than suitable for someone like Jackson. She’s worked hard to get to where she is now. Her life and her work are clashing, making matters worse. Bringing a whole new meaning to work/life balance. But Anna knows that with a little give and take everything will fall into place, regardless of the obstacles that may stand in her way.

“I don’t think I should sleep in your bed tonight.”
“You don’t think you should, huh?” His tone is condescending.
That only pisses me off more.
“What? You thought after the way you were all warm with me, I’d melt in your arms. Let you take me to bed and what? Fuck my brains out?”
“No darlin’. I was expecting we eat first, and then fuck. Then, fuck some more.” He has that devious look in his eyes as he sweeps his gaze over my body from head to toe. So not happening buster.
“Well sorry, but you expected way too much.”
I push past him into the room. Pulling out a pair of sweats and a tee-shirt, I sit my clothes on the bed. I even find some granny panties. I’m not going to dress up for him. Not tonight. Not ever again, if we don’t at least talk it out as a couple.
“Annabelle.” He’s frustrated now. His voice has gone quiet, but it still packs the same power it always does when he speaks. Dark. Dangerous. Delicious.
I’m so screwed.
Only if I give in.
“I just got you home. I don’t want to fight.”
“I don’t want to fight either, I want to talk.”
I step into my panties and sweats, pull my tee over my head, and pull my brush through my now curly hair. Jackson stands in the doorway watching.
“Anna, just because you throw on sweats and a wrinkly tee doesn’t mean I don’t want you. I’ll always want you.”

One of Tigris’ fondest memories, was in the sixth grade, when her teacher read her story, “The Case of The Missing Pepperoni”, out loud to the class. It was then she decided she wanted to be a writer when she grew up. But like all childhood dreams, reality has a way of crashing in and disrupting plans. But her imagination and the voices inside her head never stopped talking. Every dream she could remember was jotted down in her dream journals.
When she’s not writing Tigris marvel’s at life’s gifts. She likes to take pictures of beautiful things. She openly admits that what she may find beautiful another person might not, and she’s perfectly okay with that. She enjoys her music and doesn’t leave home without it. Long pillow conversations with LL about nonsensical things, and hanging out with her boys, when they deem her “cool enough.”
Tigris is a military brat who’s done her fair share of travelling, thanks to her Army father. She’s married to the infamous LL and has three boys. She currently resides in Houston and is actively seeking a book-buddy for the end of the world.
