EXCERPT REVEAL ~ TWISTED by Aleatha Romig

TWISTED is the first book in Aleatha Romig’s all-new new dark romance trilogy, TANGLED WEB, releasing 21st May. 
Are you ready to meet Aleatha’s MOST dangerous alpha yet?
Are you ready to be Aleatha’d? 

 

The underworld of Chicago is far from forgiving. It’s a world where knowledge means power, power money, and money everything.
While I paid the ultimate price to have it all, it wasn’t my decision to give my life..
That doesn’t mean I ceased to exist, only to live.
Going where the job takes me and living in the shadows, with deadly accuracy I utilize the skills inherent to me, not knowing from where they came, not recalling what I’d lost.
And then I saw her.
Laurel Carlson.
I shouldn’t want her, desire her, or need her, yet with each sighting I know she is exactly what I have to have. Laurel has the ability to do what I thought was impossible. She sees what others don’t.
My gut tells me that it’s a deadly mistake to change my plans and open my world to her. My mind says she’ll be repulsed by my twisted existence.
None of that matters, because my body won’t take no for an answer.
I’ve made dangerous mistakes before.
This time, will the price be too high?

From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a brand-new dark romance bringing us back to the same dangerous underworld as SECRETS. You do not need to read the Web of Sin trilogy to get caught in this new and intriguing saga, Tangled Web.

TWISTED is book one of the TANGLED WEB trilogy which will continue in OBSESSED and conclude in BOUND.
Have you been Aleatha’d?

His warm breath skirting across my exposed neck offered me reassurance while the rigidity of his body sent another message.His grip of me, the way he held me against him, offered no softness or comfort. Though I couldn’t see his face, I knew without a doubt that this was the man from the gathering. I didn’t know how he’d entered my house or how long he’d been present. At the moment, that seemed irrelevant. All that mattered was he was here now.

His cologne from before was replaced by a masculine scent reminding me of outdoors. This man was wind and rain and cool spring nights with the fury and power notorious with our storms. In his hold, the air around me shifted as if a barometer were falling and the atmosphere was changing.

Slowly, his fingers moved, loosening their grip on my lips.

“How—?” I began.

His hand resumed its position, pressing my lips harder than before, causing them to flatten against my teeth. Though he’d promised otherwise, the pressure brought a copper taste to my tongue and tears to my eyes.

“Don’t speak unless you whisper,” his command came through gritted teeth. “I’ll explain later. Nod if you agree.”

Again, I nodded.

Immediately, the pressure lessened. Once his hand was gone from my mouth, I moved my lips and jaw from side to side. Though he’d released my face, I wasn’t free. My body was captive to the strength of his grasp. One of his arms was still around my waist holding me tightly against the hardness of him. When he’d released my mouth, he’d moved his other arm across my upper chest, keeping my shoulders to his front.

It was the arm holding my waist that garnered my attention. Though his gruff voice was all business, his body was reacting to our proximity, growing harder against the small of my back.

REVIEW ALERT ~ A FIVE-MINUTE LIFE by Emma Scott

Today we are thrilled to be sharing our 5-star review of A FIVE-MINUTE LIFE,
an all-new standalone new adult romance by
International bestselling author Emma Scott

AFML Cover.jpg

Thea Hughes has five minutes to live.

A car accident stole her parents and left her with the second-worst documented case of amnesia in the world. She now has only minutes of experiences, of consciousness, of life…before her memory is wiped clean. The once effervescent artist with a promising future is reduced to scribbling with pens and paper, living an empty, quiet life, three hundred seconds at a time.

Jim Whelan is on autopilot.

A foster kid shuffled around the system since birth, he’s lived his entire life without knowing love…and it’s taken its toll—until he learned to fight back, carry his armor, and keep his head down.

Working as an orderly in the Blue Ridge Sanitarium, deep in Virginia countryside, Jim looked up…and found Thea.

When Thea has the chance to break free of her five-minute prison with a risky, experimental surgery, it could lead them both to an epic love they never thought possible… or one that could require the ultimate sacrifice.

A stand-alone, new adult romance.

Reviewed by Sharon Thérèse at KFF

A Five Minute Life is a feast for the senses and believe you me, it’s been a long while since all mine has been so alert. Scott’s prose encourages you to read fast, and you do but not without its consequences. What happens in five minutes becomes tortuous, uplifting, heartening and devastating. You gulp, go back and read passages in those pages turned hastily because just maybe you’d missed a significant detail by a hair’s breadth. You hope, too. Yes, plenty of that but the crushing knowledge learnt won’t appease even the hardest reader’s heart. Never have I read a story quite like this one. In fact, l have yet to come down from the high. The lows…oh-so-many, many tears.

Jimmy. This young man melted my heart and while writing this review and reflecting upon all of his qualities, I cried. With such a painful past that still comes back to haunt him, it would have been so easy for him to go down the wrong path, but he didn’t. He’s happy with what he’s got; nonetheless, he has his dreams…dreams he thinks are out of reach. Hmm…just maybe he’ll find encouragement to carry them out from the least expected person. Jimmy has a handicap and oh my, did Scott describe it with finesse. He has few words to share with anyone but what he doesn’t say, he makes up for in other ways. Trustworthy and hard-working, I couldn’t have rooted for this determined lad more. Everything he did was right and even if he was told otherwise, in my book he always did what was best for a lass who was trapped in her five-minute life.

“…Love. Without love, what’s the point?”

When the reader meets Thea, we get to know how high-spirited and talented she is. Out-going and out-spoken, her older sister Delia is daunted by her. One thing is for sure, they care for each other as siblings do. In fact, when disaster strikes, Delia’s protectiveness not only overwhelmed me, I also found her stance irrational. She has a sharp tongue and little patience for those around her sister. However, trying to picture what it must have been like for her was difficult although comprehensible.

“I love your sister to pieces, but a monastery isn’t serious enough for her.”

There were so many profoundly touching moments in this love story that took my breath away. Little-big clues Jimmy discovers, his courage to carry on and his calm demeanour during tough scenes. Him never giving up regardless of the setbacks. Him taking what little is given in real-time with Thea which are few and far between, are what counts. Every single minute he has with her isn’t lost. Somehow in Talia’s confusion, a bond grows, but wait until it flowers. To say I smiled would be an understatement. It is glorious. And damn it, I’m crying again!

‘He’s like a shot of booze, or a drug that feels too good to be legal.’

A third into the book and I still had that touch and go feeling. I can honestly say it felt as if I was living Thea’s fears but through it all, Jimmy was there brightening up her day with everything he had to offer. His inspiration filled my heart, her despair left me emotionally wrought.

‘Tiny tentacles of fear wormed into me as sleep came on.
It’s too good. Nothing good last.’

When a book has the calibre as does A Five-Minute Life, these words of praise seem to be insufficient. Small even. The author has knocked it out of the park! Impeccable storytelling, a plot that grips you from the first page to the last, and fabulous character development are only a couple of things that make this an epic romance. Get ready for a read like no other you’ve ever read! You won’t want to put it down, and since it’s a snotty-nosed read, you’ll definitely need a man-sized hanky or three at hand. It is plain to see that Scott has given her all and it’s paid off in spades. Bravo!

Emma Scott is a bestselling author of emotional, character-driven romances in which art and love intertwine to heal, and in which love always wins. If you enjoy thoughtful, realistic stories with diverse characters and kind-hearted heroes, you will enjoy my novels.
