About chasing Reese.

Loss brings Love…

Everything in life is not permanent but it was perfect. Catalina Pardo had a career in journalism most people could only dream of, a hot, sexy fiancé to call her own and a brilliant future ahead of her. When tragedy struck, the life she once knew fell apart. Four years later, traumatized by the events that ultimately changed her existence, Catalina sets herself on a punishing work schedule, preventing herself from facing the demons of her grief-stricken past. Emotionally shut down, she’s alive but not living because everyone she ever loved leaves her.

Fate intervenes in Catalina’s life in the form of a last minute assignment to a snowy mountain lodge in Whistler, B.C. Sent there to cover the life of the infamous Jackson Reese; an Olympic Snowboarding Champion, she is faced with many challenges bringing to surface the raw emotions of her past. Compelled to work alongside Stryder Martynus, an award winning photographer brought in to document the Reese press tour, tensions and denial run high forcing Catalina to accept the past and face the present with zero regrets.

*Adult Fiction Sports Romance – Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not suitable for readers under the age of eighteen (18+).*

chasing Reese. is a full length novel, and the first installment of the SAFELIGHT series. This is Imy Santiago’s debut novel.

Excerpt from chasing Reese.

What’s her name again? Tammy? Tracy? I don’t know and I couldn’t fucking care. Whatever possessed Blondie to wear a tiny dress with her legs exposed in single digit weather is beyond me. Nevertheless, she’s hot and just what I asked for when I called the service.

One of the pitfalls of being single is going out on my own, but thankfully, tonight that’s not the case. After giving the cabbie a generous tip, we walk carefully on the icy sidewalk and down the ramp towards the jazz club entrance. My phone chirps in my coat pocket, and wondering who it is, I unlink my arm from Blondie’s tight grasp. Looking down at my cell’s brightly lit screen, I move forward hearing my date’s stilettos clicking behind me.

I probably shouldn’t read emails while walking down a ramp. My lack of attention puts me in the path of a woman wearing an emerald dress and my moment of carelessness knocks her down. The sound of her ass hitting the icy pavement makes me wince. That had to hurt.

It all happened so quickly, and seeing her sprawled on the ground like that made me do a double take. Her overall look was pleasing, and for a guy who prefers a certain flavor in women, this one in particular gets my attention: skulls embroidered on the hem of her dress, long raven hair, ruby red lips, and tan skin with abundant curves. Fuck me when I say she takes my breath away. There she is, laughing her ass off trying to get up and here I stand, watching in awe.

Extending my arm, I help her up, and my heart skips a beat as soon as our hands meet. My spine stiffens when blood unexpectedly rushes south, stirring my cock. That’s never happened before. Maybe it’s because she’s different from what I’m used to, but then again it could be the effect of the all the rye I had before I left West Village…

*Adult Fiction Sports Romance with Mature Content−Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not suitable for readers under the age of eighteen.*

finding Reese. is a full length novel, and the second installment in the SAFELIGHT series. Given its continuous story line, finding Reese. cannot be read as a standalone. This is the second book written and published by Imy Santiago.

Excerpt from finding Reese.

Her body curves like a violin, and I’m eager to pluck her alluring strings. Silk stockings cover her shapely thighs, and when she moves, the garters stretch tantalizingly slow. All I can think is, fuck me. From across the room, Catalina seems confident, but upon closer inspection I notice she’s quivering under my gaze. That tinge of innocence mixed with confidence has me close to ending this party before it even starts.

When I picked out the lingerie, I knew it was going to be perfect for her, but not once did I imagine she would look as gorgeous and as sexy as she does right now. I know a lot of guys say they prefer their ladies naked and sure, I do too but damn! Catalina looks smoking hot dressed up like this. I swallow hard, my mouth parched all of a sudden, and resume my strides like a man on a mission. Before her I extend my index finger and trace it over her heaving bosom. As I make contact with her skin, she lets out a raspy sigh, and I follow. Either my vocal chords have stopped working, or touching her fried my brain.

I’m incapable of coherent speech as I watch Catalina’s eyes following the movement of my finger. I draw an imaginary line down the center of her corset, hooking my finger over the soft material of the red garter belt, and tug on it gently. Her whispered breaths have me groaning softly as anticipation builds in the narrow space between us.

“Catalina… Baby…” I breathe her name like a litany.

“Stryder…” she whispers my name in supplication.

I hold the back of her neck with one hand, and tilt her chin up with the other, my lips claiming hers. Our kiss is urgent, filled with passion and laced with unmasked devotion. Her mouth is my temple and her body is my home, and I pray that never changes for as long as I live. I kiss her deeply, branding her mouth with my memories so she’s unable to forget me when I leave tomorrow morning. I don’t know what will happen tomorrow, but seizing this moment is my top priority.

Her hands clutch my waist as I swallow the soft moans she exhales, relishing her taste and affection. I release her neck and chin, and grip her shapely thighs, lifting her body onto mine and wrapping her legs around my waist. As I deepen our kiss, she wraps her hands around my neck in response. Apart from the crackling and hissing of the fireplace, it’s the sound of our ragged breaths that fill the air.

I prop her against the nearest wall, pushing her hair to the side with one hand while the other pins us securely against the hard surface. Catalina breaks our kiss to catch her breath, and offers me her neck to kiss and lick it. Between the scent of her skin and her unmistakable need the air is filled with a heady combination that has me bursting quite literally at the seam of my pants. I’m eager to be naked, and I hope she is too…

About Shattered Lies*

Lies are shattered, leaving death and destruction in its path. To save a child, they must make a deal with the devil himself.

They had a plan: two days—get in, ask the questions, and get out. Seemed simple enough. But you know what they say about best laid plans. Life always seems to get in the way of living.

Revenge can be such a bitter pill to swallow, costing others to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Jax’s need for control slowly slips through his fingers as Raven’s past attempts to steal their future.

Will Maxwell be able to hang on to his happily ever after, or will it be cruelly snatched away, yet again?

*Shattered Lies is part of a continuous storyline, therefore it cannot be read as a standalone.

First Excerpt

“Raven, I’ve never shared any of this with anyone. I thought by keeping it buried, it would be gone. But things never stay buried, do they? Eventually, everything comes to light.” He mindlessly twirls my hair around his fingers.

“I would sit by the window every Saturday, waiting for him to come home. Sometimes, I would set up our peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on a TV tray, hoping he would come back to watch Doctor Who. He never came back, but I kept setting it up . . . hoping. As I got older, I made sure I worked hard in school and helped my mum with Bella. I always protected my mum and my sister. I never gave into my fear that one day, I would wake up and they would be gone, too. I wanted to make him proud of me, just in case he came back to us. Instead . . . he just moved on to the next family. No matter how hard I tried, it was never good enough. We were never good enough,” he barely whispers, “When is it ever good enough?”

Second Excerpt

Her eyes grow wide. “Um, will I need a safeword?”

My jaw tightens. “What do you know about that? What would make you think you need a safeword with me?”

“I might be inexperienced but I have read books, and I’ve seen movies. This is the twenty-first century, Max. I can tell you I don’t understand getting pleasure from pain.”

Her innocence is breathtakingly beautiful. “We are lovers and lovers will never need safewords. If we are doing something that you’re not comfortable with all you ever have to say to me is stop. I get no pleasure from giving or receiving pain. What gives me the greatest pleasure is when you let me love you. Everything we experience together gives me the greatest pleasure.” I realize that communication is everything for us. I’m determined to keep her forever and in order to do that, I have to let her in. “I will be more open with you, however, you must do the same. If you need something from me that I’m not giving you, then tell me. I promise to try to not treat you like a porcelain doll.”

“Well, in that case, before you get on that plane, I need you—bad. You and me, babe—all night.”

As my eyes gaze over her body, her nipples harden and I know this is going to be hard and fast. I lift her with one arm and yank down her yoga pants. “Hold on to the edge of the table and don’t let go.” I drop to my knees taking her pants all the way off. I kiss each foot as I place them on my shoulders. Oh, these legs are my undoing. I kiss them very slowly, working my way up one side and down the other. She’s using her feet to pull me in closer. When I finally reach my prize, I gently kiss her. I glance up and smile; the look on her face priceless. She’s biting her lip trying so hard not to let go of the table while her legs begin to tremble. I push my fingers in deeper while my tongue never loses contact. That is until her hips begin to lift up and down. She’s not going to last. I know she’s going to come, so I slow it down almost to a crawl.

She whimpers, with such angst. “Max, why the hell are you stopping?”

“Anticipation,” is all I say. She takes her hands off the table trying to push me, I stop completely. “Hands on the table or I will stop—now!” She grabs the table moaning, and fuck, it’s hot! Very slowly, I use my fingers and gently, I spread her wetness from front to back and I feel her tense. “I will be gentle, and remember, you can always say stop.” I feel her begin to relax. I work my tongue in and out of her as I push through her barrier with my pinky finger, matching the pace of my tongue. Sensing she’s almost there, I take her clitoris between my teeth and gently tug while flicking my tongue. She tries to move her hips but I’ve got a lock on her legs. Her feet are kicking my shoulders. She is screaming my name over and over again, like the song of an angel.

About Theresa Sederholt

Theresa Sederholt was born and raised in Brooklyn New York.  She is a graduate of Campbell University in North Carolina, with a degree in Criminal Justice. Theresa now calls North Carolina home, with her husband, a professional chef, and her two dogs.

Experiencing life first hand is what she does best. Believing she can do anything has put her in many crazy situations. Whether it’s babysitting a pig farm or cutting the top off of a mini truck; nothing is ever out of reach. Her list is endless, A to Z.

As a flight attendant (there’s that list again), she would make up stories about all of her passengers as they came and went. It seemed only natural to put pen to paper and see where these characters led her. What started out as a single woman, having a cup of coffee—trying to make it through life—grew into a complex story of romance, mystery, and murder. The Unraveled Trilogy was born.

Theresa’s beliefs are pretty simple. There isn’t a luggage rack on the hearse, and give a girl Nutella and espresso and she can change the world.

Theresa enjoys connecting with her fans. She can always be reached through her website.

An itch and a glass of ice-cold water…



I’ve been editing for what seems like forever now, and mind you, these are just SELF-EDITS. The true editing begins as soon as Kimberly Ito, my amazing editor, receives my manuscript. I can’t wait to conclude these self-edits because if anything, I want to impress the SHIT out of her. You see, when she received the manuscript of chasing Reese. last year, it was in deplorable condition. She was tough on me… The GOOD kind of tough that makes you want to strive to write better because she expects and demands EXCELLENCY from you, and that’s why I will only work with her. She keeps me grounded and questions things I would never think twice about… So Kimberly, this post is for you. Please don’t judge it too harshly. *cringes thinking she’s somewhere near Okinawa in front of her monitor shaking her head at my terrible grammar/tense/punctuation skills* *bats eyes coquettishly*

Due to strong language and sexual content, this scene is not suitable for readers under the age of 18.

This scene contains lots of motherfucking bad words, a sensual to hot, panty-scorching sex scene. No nipples were harmed in the making of this scene. On the contrary… But I digress.

The writer is not to be held at fault for any wet panties, or the urge to climb your man (or lady, or both) like a tree after reading this snippet.

I’m a little ridiculous but you already knew that. I’ve tried to lure you in with my terrible humor. SCORE!

You know the feeling you get when you’re itchy and you scratch, and it feels so damn good, but you just can’t stop? Even if it means you’ll be sore or bleed afterwards, it doesn’t matter because the pleasure outweighs the pain. I get the exact same feeling every time we are intimate. It’s a delicious itch that gets scratched over and over again, and it feels amazing. Who knew I’d get a kick out of rough sex? But the sound of Stryder pounding his cock deep into me again and again has me all kinds of delirious.

“Fuck me good, Stryder. Please… don’t… stop!” I cry into his ear, a never-ending chant that makes him plunge deeper and further into me. His groans and ragged breaths undo me; I’m dancing across the midnight-blue sky, twirling around the fucking moon, and floating back down to Earth with the grace of a hummingbird. Stryder withdraws and kisses the space between my breasts and I instinctively wrap my arms around his neck, showering him with kisses.

“I love you, Stryder,” I whisper in between ragged breaths.

“I love you too, Raven Girl,” Stryder replies with a smile, trying to catch his breath. “Are you okay?”

“Yeah… but why’d you stop?” I pout my lips.

“I needed a moment. I’m not quite done with you yet,” he replies with a chuckle. “Thirsty?”

I nod as he rises from the bed and walks towards the bathroom, then returns with a glass of water. I drink it so eagerly some of the droplets dribble down my chin and pitter-patter against my breasts. Not one to be wasteful, Stryder eagerly laps them up; trailing his tongue down my chin, past my neck, and stopping in between my breasts. Halting abruptly, he snaps his head up and, with his hands, demands the glass of water.

I tilt my head, and hand over the tumbler. Before I can put two and two together, I feel the cold sting of the thick glass pressing against my nipple. I moan in shock and pleasure, and Stryder lets out a sexy growl of approval. With an ear-splitting grin, he straddles me and tips the glass, allowing small droplets of ice-cold water to land on the tip of my hardened nipple. Stryder lowers his head and I squirm with delight when I feel the warmth of his tongue lapping, then suctioning, the cold wetness away. He unlatches with a loud pop, and lifts his shimmering eyes and satisfied smirk to meet my scandalized gaze.

He lifts the glass and repeats the same delectable torment on my other nipple. I watch him in wonder, asking myself if our intimacy will ever go bland in the years to come. My mind goes haywire thinking beyond the present. I have no doubt Stryder is happy with me; his actions, both in and out of bed point to it. I don’t know what tomorrow holds let alone months from now, but I can’t help but dream of a future beyond what we currently have. My heart skips a beat as hope blossoms deep within my belly.

“Hey, where’d you go?” Stryder asks with a heart-melting smile. “Don’t tell me it was me, because you make o’s with your mouth when I’m sucking your nipples. The smile on your face is priceless, so spill the beans, Pardo. Tell me what’s going on inside that pretty head of yours.”

I exhale a shaky breath and hesitate before speaking. I can’t tell him what’s on my mind; what if I’m rushing things too fast? I don’t want him to believe I want to take our relationship beyond what he’s prepared for. I refuse to admit that I see myself married to him, the mother of his children.

“Nothing, really, I’m just happy with you, Stryder. I love being with you, sharing my ups and downs, kissing you and spending time with you. I’m going to miss you when you leave.”

Stryder’s hazel eyes look deeply into mine. “Ditto, Cat. I love you too.”

Sighing deeply I hold him tight. I feel terrible hiding my true feelings and desires, but at the same time, I know I’m doing the right thing.

“You know you can tell me anything, right?” Stryder whispers against my cheek. “Anything.”

I nod in agreement, yet a cold shiver runs up my spine. Stryder knows I’m not being forthright, but he’s too much of a gentleman to press the subject further. Instead, he raises his head and pours a small stream of water on my belly, resuming his affections.
