Monique Orgeron - book author
Monique Orgeron is a Contemporary Romance w/ suspense author. Stern Family Saga
Written by Monique Orgeron’s eldest, most beautiful, and intelligent daughter. (My sister is going to hate this part.)
My mom happens to be the most caring, loving, and stubborn person I know, well anyone knows. She gives 100% percent of herself to everyone and has given up so much of herself for my sister and I. For twenty-one years she has poured her heart and soul into making sure we know that we are loved and that we can do anything we put our minds too, but it was about time she figured that out about herself.
Up until this year I hadn’t seen my mom do anything for only her, but this book has allowed her to travel the world through the pages of a book, make new friends, and feel the joy of doing something exciting.
There is a new light behind her eyes and it is just making me feel more joy than she can ever imagine. While she might be annoying most of the time, I am so thrilled that she is finally allowing herself to grow as a person and not spend all of her energy on her family.
It has been a long journey of self-discovery for my mom; she has gone from domestic supermom to domestic goddess throughout the process of writing.
We are so very excited and proud of you! I love you as big as the world.
-Bria and Tony

Until, she met her target, the man who could destroy everything.
Fallon’s a survivor, but can she survive him?
Gabriel is independent and brutal.
He learned early on about his mother’s games.
For years his mother has tried to control every aspect of his life.
He was born to be her successor, but he refused to be her chess piece.
When a mysterious woman shows up, Gabriel’s life is turned upside down.
Is she his mother’s pawn?
Soon they will learn that the games Gabriel’s mother, Catherine Stern plays are for keeps.
Secrets and deception always find a way of being revealed.
Liam Stern lived a charmed and carefree life. Always surrounded by friends, he was the boy who could have any girl he wanted, and did.
She was pure and innocent. She was the one he never saw coming.
She was the only thing that mattered, but the time came for him to fulfill his destiny. To protect Avery from a life she was not made for, he would have to give up the one thing he loved most in this world: her.
Now the decisions made years ago come back to cost them both, dearly.
Avery Edwards was a good girl, never stepping out of line, always the obedient daughter.
Until Liam showed her everything she was missing in her life: love.
Liam was her future, or at least she thought.
Until he broke her.
That was the beginning of her nightmare.
After years apart, Liam and his family hold her future in their hands. Rebuilding a girl who no longer cares to live.
After years of hating Liam, can Avery truly give him her forgiveness?
As a boy, Vincent Stern suffered abuse that continues to haunt him long after the physical scars have healed.
His hatred turned into a need for revenge.
That need turned into guilt that would never leave him, creating a darkness in his life, festering and tormenting his mind.
But with all his darkness comes light.
A woman he never even considered, could one day become his home.
Does she possess the ability to save him from himself?
Sometimes life makes decisions for you.
Isn’t it funny how things turn out when life forces your hand?
In tragedy you do things you would never see yourself doing.
Choices had to be made, even if she was too young to make them.
She will never regret those decisions, but she will also never allow herself to dream beyond the life that she has already resigned herself to.
Until one night, her life changes and with it, her heart.
Can they save each other and find the love they both deserve?
Her coming into my life was a miracle. She saved me. But she also came in like rolling thunder to my lightning strikes.
Opinionated, aggressive, argumentative, and fuck did it make me react. She is the first woman to ever call me on my bullshit, causing my blood to boil like no other.
The problem is, she sees right through me. I’m a bad man with no redeeming qualities or is that true?
I might not be who she wants, but I can be the only man she will ever need, and she is the only one that can penetrate my blackened heart.
The price is high but with her, I get not one but two hearts that will be solely mine.
Fire and ice!
Freedom is all I wanted and what I got were surprises.
All wrapped up in a man that was everything I hated.
Life was supposed to be simple.
Stick to the plan, that’s all I had to do and then he came in tempting me and pushing my buttons.
So why did I let him get under my skin, in my thoughts, and in my bed?
There is too much to risk but what a delicious risk it would be.
Is it possible to love someone you hate?
The minute Murphy Larussa stepped foot in New Orleans, her life changed forever.
Murphy was meant to remain in the shadows, hidden from prying eyes, like any good bastard.
She finds herself hunted by a dangerous family for a debt she has no knowledge of.
Everyone wants her gone, but they underestimate her. She refuses to allow them to push her back into obscurity. From now on, everyone will know her name because she is here to stay and claim what is rightfully hers.
There will be a war, one Murphy is hell bent on winning!
Sent on a hunt for a person who owes his family, Zander will not stop until he has his man.
How was he to know who he would find?
Murphy Larussa is not what any of them saw coming.
So unexpected, she’s the only woman to ever bring the great Zander Stern to his knees.
Now he will do anything to protect her, even if that means protecting her from his own family.
Everyone wants a war.
He will give them one, but this is a war he plans on winning!
Stripped of everything, I paid penance for a crime that wasn't mine.
But in our world, the son always pays for the father's sins.
My need for revenge blinded me.
Faced with the truth, I was forced to make a choice that went against what I'd fought so hard for.
With my atonement complete, I'm asked what would make me happy.
The problem is, I had happiness once and the very person who gave it to me is the same one who robbed me of it by leaving.
The girl I loved with all my heart and now hate with all I am.
How can I look forward when I'm tortured by memories of her?
Now she's back.
Sometimes love isn't good for you.
Sometimes, you have to love yourself enough to see the destruction ahead and simply move out of the way.
I once loved a boy who was determined to continually hurt himself.
For a chance to prove himself worthy.
His choices opened my eyes to see the years of pain and hurt the future held.
Leaving, I took a risk for a better future, but my return unravels a spiral of betrayal.
Leaving me at their mercy.
Two women destroyed my life.
Now, one wants to know what will make me happy and the other thinks she knows.
They know nothing.
Both stole my legacy and I’m demanding it all back.
The tables have turned and now they need me.
In making them pay I will find my happiness.
Both of them will guarantee I do.
Refusing to let my child carry his burden, I left.
Now with my return, for all the years he suffered, he wants my pain and misery for everything I stole.
I will play the pathetic woman and pay the price he demands, giving him what he feels he needs. Because I’m still a liar.
I’ve been lying to myself for too long.
I thought I could save myself from feeling pain.
But if I quit lying to myself, what is left?
It’s as ugly as the lie.
Even with all his hate, I still love him.
**The Youngblood series is a spin-off series of the Stern Family Saga**
** This is not a standalone. This is the 3rd book in the Youngblood Series but the 2nd book in Shane and Jolie's story.**
My life, like I said before, has been written through my sons' lives.
But not all.
Once, there was a girl, who was left alone in this world to fight and defend herself.
She did exactly that and became,
Becoming someone, I wasn't, was not easy.
It came with strings that strangled every part of my old self out.
The girl I once was would have to be destroyed and replaced with a woman who would rule.
A woman who was a fighter and a survivor.
The problem is, I'm not sure I have what it takes to fight anymore battles and endure what is to come.
After years of searching, it has come to this.
To this place where my past comes full circle.
The only absolution I will find is through the vengeance delivered by my hands.
All that stands in my way are the Sterns and the undying loyalty they require.
I'll gladly give it because in the end, there's no life beyond my final fight.
I'm determined with a singular focus, until they throw Chloe upon me and she becomes a distraction I can't afford.
At every turn, she lights a fire I'm not sure I can extinguish, or if I want to.
Tired of living in the shadow of my sister's choices, I'm determined to break free.
With echoes of disapproval constant, my boundaries will be tested.
A threat I never saw coming has forced me with Gunner, stealing the very
independence I've been desperate to gain and makes me question where my trust should lie.
What I never factored in, was my ability to trust in him, a man I despise.
He's the steady I'm learning to count on.
Making hating him, that much harder.
But I should heed his warning because he will break me like no one else can.
