BLOG TOUR ~ STEALING VENGEANCE by Kaylea Cross

Today we are thrilled to be on tour with New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Kaylea Cross’ kick-off title to a brand new romantic suspense series, STEALING VENGEANCE

 

She’s an expert at getting into places she doesn’t belong.

The government created Megan, transforming her into a Valkyrie—a deadly operative only whispered about in certain circles. They took everything from her and made her into a weapon. Now someone is leaking secret information about her sisters-in-arms, betraying them for money. Loyal Unto Death is the Valkyrie motto. So when Megan is recruited to find who leaked the files, she takes the high-risk assignment. Even if it means working with the man who betrayed her trust long ago. Even if it means giving her life. Because she’ll do whatever it takes to find justice.

But this is one situation she can’t escape from on her own.

Tyler Bergstrom never forgot the resourceful woman who escaped during the toughest phase of SERE school. So when he learns the stunning truth about her and his unwitting part in her past, he volunteers to work alongside Megan for a chance at redemption. Except she doesn’t want a partner. Doesn’t want to let anyone into her life, including him—hell, especially him. Yet whether she likes it or not, for this mission they’re partners. Now it’s a race against the clock to bring down the shadowy figure targeting Valkyries. But the threat goes deeper than they ever imagined. No one is safe. And if they can’t overcome the past and learn to trust each other, they’re both dead.

This is the first book I have read by this author, an action-packed romance with deadly femme fatales; it’s going to be a great rollercoaster thrill ride this one.

When Megan, a Valkyrie operative trained by the government, finds herself back in the game, little did she know that the man assigned to be her partner is somebody from her past. Megan was trained to be the best in her field by a covert military group, and that soon becomes handy when she has to find the traitor who is responsible for selling out the identities of Valkyrie agents.

Tyler is an ex-military who’s assigned to work with Megan. His guilt and remorse will make him do whatever he can to make it up to the woman he betrayed in the past. But the highly skilled thief not only steals valuable objects, but will also steal his heart.

What I like about this book is that it is first and foremost an action thriller that features highly- trained female agents, the steamy bed scenes are just a bonus. Megan’s hard-as-nails persona starts to gradually melt when she gets to know more of Tyler’s character and soon learns to trust him. The introduction of other important characters which I think will be featured in the next book adds more dimension to this thriller. The author narrates high-octane action scenes but doesn’t make it too technical for those of us who are not tech-savvy in weapons and logistics, just enough to titillate our senses and whet our appetite for more books of this genre.

I did a little research on the previous works by the author and found out that some of the characters here have their own stories from a different series. I quite enjoy it when there is a cross-over; the more interesting personas that you only get a glimpse of from previous stories gives you a chance to learn more about them in the new books. Tyler and Megan’s relationship gets closure in this tale but Amber another Valkyrie agent will carry on with her mission onto the next, Covert Vengeance (Vengeance #2) and I am looking forward to reading it. I thoroughly enjoyed Megan’s story and I am sure you will too.

PRE-ORDER THE NEXT BOOK IN THE VENGEANCE SERIES

Revenge came at a heavy price.

Valkyrie hacker Amber Brown is deadly in her own right, but her preferred weapon is a keyboard. So after her teammates left her for dead, she took her revenge the way she was trained to—swiftly and brutally. Except one of her targets might be innocent. To right that wrong, Amber vows to rescue the at-risk Valkyrie no matter the cost, and this time she’s working alone. So when a sexy stranger shows up in the middle of a firefight and announces he’s been sent by her sister, it’s going to take a whole lot more than his word to make her trust him.

Chasing redemption may prove deadly.

Elite gun for hire Jesse Cordova lives on the edge of the law. When a new job offer sets off warning bells, he digs deeper and finds the startling truth. The woman he’s been tasked with capturing is a secret government assassin, and Amber Brown is unlike any target he’s gone after before. But bringing her in opens them up to a whole new level of danger, pitting them against one of the most ruthless assassins in the world. Now that the sexy Valkyrie has stolen his heart, Jesse will risk everything to see their mission through—knowing that the only way this ends is with one of them dying.

GOODREADS

Reviewed by Anna on behalf of KFF

 
This action-packed romance by one of my favourite authors in this genre never fails to disappoint. A book where the antagonist becomes the protagonist and where revenge is the main dish of the day served cold.

Giselle Walker is your modern-day Cinderella, trapped in her wealthy family’s shenanigans. She was supposed to be married to Kevin but her evil younger sister snatches her fiancé right under her eyes. When she has no choice but to go along with her grandfather’s draconian orders, someone who’s been watching her from a distance makes his move. Is he the Prince Charming to her Cinderella or is he the one who will make her suffer even more?

Callum MacRae is a successful business entrepreneur who looks like he couldn’t ask for more in life. However, he has a dark and horrific past. Emotionally and physically scarred from his childhood nightmares, he plans the most dramatic revenge on those who he thinks wronged him. His other persona as Hades the serial killer has earned him a fearsome reputation, but where does he draw the line when it comes to the woman who has stirred this unknown and strange feeling from him?

This dark romance is narrated in dual points of view, interspersed with Callum’s traumatic childhood memories (this might cause triggers to some readers so just to warn you) and Giselle’s younger years. The author successfully narrates a tale of revenge and steamy romance with a seamless and tight plot. Callum’s character development is noteworthy, his early memories as a young helpless victim to a survivor who becomes a serial killer; from a child who learned to stave off his emotions to a grown man who slowly regains something more important than revenge.

The chemistry between the main characters was off the charts. Mason surely can write super hot love scenes and at the same time, vividly narrates torture scenes littered with blood and gore and makes you take it all in stride.

If you are familiar with this author’s other books/series, some of the memorable characters like Micaden, Lachlan, Arson etc. make a special appearance in this book. If there is one author who can make you fangirl for a serial killer and fall for his ruthless charm, V.F. Mason can turn you. In the mood for a fast-paced, romantic thriller with an ensemble of sexy serial killers that can potentially set your knickers on fire? Then this is the perfect book for you. Highly recommended!

EXCERPT

They say obsessions and insanity go hand-in-hand, but I have another theory.

Possession and desire go hand-in-hand, because they create such deep insanity a man is willing to eliminate everything and everyone in his way to get to what he wants.

I flick my fingers and knock two pawns from the chessboard, ready to strike again.

By the time this is done, there will be no one but the queen left standing.



About the author

V.F.Mason always loved reading books and had quite a few fights with her momma over the genre she liked (romance, duh!) She studied film-making and thought that would feed her desire for stories, but that didn’t happen. Finally, when she was tired of all those voices in her head, she sat down and wrote a book. It was a huge decision to make and she thanks her friends and family for supporting her in it. When she is not writing, she can be found with her friends doing all sorts of crazy things or reading recent romance books that were written by her favorite authors.

REVIEW & EXCERPT ~ LOTUS EFFECT by Trisha Wolfe

Today we are delighted to be sharing USA Today bestselling author Trisha Wolfe’s most riveting psych thriller yet, LOTUS EFFECT


 
When the past resurfaces, can she escape her killer a second time?

Lakin Hale, true crime writer and victim of an attack that left her for dead, helps crime solvers and victims close cold cases, yet there is one crime she hasn’t been able to solve:

Her own.

As she embarks on a new case, working closely with Special Agent Rhys Nolan, the details of the murder begin to eerily resemble the event that nearly ended her life. A silhouette of a man haunts her dreams, but there were only two people there that night–Lakin and her murderer. Is the phantom hero who pulled her from the water a delusion, or is he the only one who can unlock her dark memories?

Buried in a watery grave of lotuses, the victim calls out to Lakin, unearthing painful memories of what was stolen from her that fateful night. For those that played a part, it’s now time to answer for their sins.
 
 

LOTUS EFFECT is now available free to read in KindleUnlimited!

Reviewed by Anna on behalf of KFF

This is my first book by this author and has totally grabbed my attention from page one. This psychological thriller, my favourite genre, will keep you guessing who the perpetrator is right until the last chapter.

Lakin Hale is a true crime author who partners with Special Agent Rhys Nolan of the FBI and digs up and solves cold cases. She was a victim of a violent crime herself and ironically because of memory loss her own case still remains unsolved.

Told in first person point of view, alternating between the past and the present, Lakin is portrayed as a detached but methodical character who through personal experience successfully manages to connect the dots on the cold cases she handles with Rhys. She is a survivor, a strong woman but shows her vulnerable side to Rhys during her weak moments. I am fascinated with the author’s witty and clever narrative that draws the reader’s attention to more than a few suspects. Wolfe’s main players can be clinical at times in which I am glad because this is a psychological thriller after all, although a romantic angle develops in the last quarter of the book between Lakin and Rhys. The frequent mention of the lotus and the parallelisms with Lakin is a play of metaphors and present a big clue to the story.

“I am not like the leaves of the lotus; I am its petals. Soft and pliable, but also sharp and deadly, like the blade that carved my body. I do not suffer my scars. They’re a testament of my strength and will to survive.” 

I won’t give any more details to avoid any spoilers but if there is one thing I would like to say is that I would have never guessed who the antagonist is. I had my suspicions but every now and then the author throws in little misleading bones and I grab it and then in the next chapter I find out I was wrong or was I? This new-to-me author has impressed me so much that I am definitely going to look up her other books and add them to my list. I highly recommend this.

Excerpt

On the one-year anniversary of my attack, Rhys convinced me to return to Silver Lake.I had vowed never to go back…not until my attacker was apprehended…and it was a painful vow to break. We retraced my steps. From the campus to the driveway of Drew’s previous home (where Chelsea told me about the pregnancy). From the apartment I shared with my roommate (where Drew and I argued and the police took my statement) to the Dock House (where my roommate tried to help me forget). Then, to the pier of the lake, not far from the Silver Lake community where my parents still live.Rhys and I stared at the rippling reflection of the crescent moon on the water.

Lotuses blanketed the lake with a iridescent sheen.

I listened to the crickets’ chirr, a haunting melody that I had no memory of from that fateful night. The wicked sound of frogs croaking filled the otherwise calm air. A desolate and eerie quietness that froze my bones.

That was the moment I revealed him to Rhys. The secret I’d kept from everyone—that twisted belief I had wrestled with, wanting to believe in my phantom hero some days, to deny his existence others.

The man who pulled me from the water.

The only memory—real or not—that I had from the night of my near demise.

In that moment, I wished I had Rhys’s training. I wanted to look at his face and read what he was thinking. But then, I was also terrified to know.

His actions have always spoken louder than his words. His silence sliced at me like the weapon used to carve my body all those nights ago. His weighted stare bled right through me, and when he cupped my face and placed a kiss to my brow, I dissolved under that comfort.

It didn’t matter if he believed me or not. Whether I had imagined it or not.

I was alive.

Man or animal, ghost or angel—whatever fished me from the lake—I had not drowned.

It was time to live.

The roll of the car engine awakens me from my post-flight trance. Inside Rhys’s rented sedan, I reach for my seatbelt and buckle in, pushing the heaviness from my chest.

“Ready?” he asks.

Deep breath. I twist the band around my wrist. “I am.”

This is the first book I have read by the author, a medical contemporary romance that I thoroughly enjoyed. Although this is book two it can be read as a stand-alone and I am definitely going to read book one as well as I love the other characters that were featured in it.

Natalie Kendrick is a thirty-two-year-old paediatric surgeon, a dedicated doctor who is well loved by her patients. Her sweet and bubbly personality, her idealism and her dedication to her patients especially to one little girl makes her the perfect heroine in this book. “I believe in the kind of love where you give the other person the last bite of cheesecake without thinking twice. Where you laugh when they’re happy, and you ache when they’re sad. Where you’re not two halves making a whole, but two wholes making something bigger, that only the two of you can make.” 

Jonah Sheridan is not only a skilled trauma surgeon but is also known as the Orgasm Whisperer amongst his colleagues. When Natalie, his best friend and fellow surgeon needed a place to stay because of a minor accident in her flat, Jonah had no choice but to offer her his place. It may not be a wise move though when their platonic friendship started to develop into something else. Living together albeit temporarily suddenly becomes uncomfortable and when he finds out about Natalie’s biggest secret, he needs to decide in which direction to take their friendship.

This friends-to-lovers romance, one of my favourite genres, surprisingly gave me more than what I hoped for. Not only does this book give you Natalie and Jonah’s epic love story, but embedded in it is the healing of a relationship between father and son, a doctor’s special connection to her patients and lovable secondary characters that make this more than just a romance novel. There are no antagonists in this story but rather one or two life-changing situations that happen to one of the main characters.

Jonah and Natalie’s connection from day one and how they dealt with the drama that happens in their lives makes their story special and so emotional. I loved that this author made her characters engaging and face adversity like proper grown-ups: by communicating and listening to each other. It felt a bit strange that the epilogue is from a minor character’s point of view so I am guessing that it will be his story next. I am thrilled that I found another gem of an author. I highly recommend this book!

“Come on, Jonah. You and I are just friends, and my living with you would only be temporary. I’m neat and fairly low-maintenance, and I really can cook like a boss. I know you like your space.” It was a euphemism, and if the smile poking at the corners of her lips was anything to go by, Natalie knew it as well as Jonah did. He was a freaking island, and it wasn’t by accident. “So I can totally stay out of your hair if you want me to. But please.” In a blink, her smile disappeared. “I’m begging you. Don’t make me stay with my parents.”
Jonah’s nice-guy propensity came out of hiding to pick a fight with his defenses, both of them quickening his pulse. His defenses didn’t fight fair, though, reminding him that he had damn good reasons for not being a long-haul guy.
He opened his mouth to say he was sorry. To tell Natalie, rationally and with good reason, why he just couldn’t let her move in with him for six weeks.

But what came out was, “Okay. You can stay.”

           Christ, his inner nice-guy was a sneaky son of a bitch.

           “Really?” Natalie let out a gasp that quickly slid into an adorable ear-to-ear grin, and okay, Jonah was going to have to do some damage control here.

           “With a couple of stipulations,” he said, holding up his fingers to count them off. “If you want to watch rom coms or that channel that plays all those gooey holiday movies, you’ve got to do it on your iPad.”

Jonah knew from experience that she loved both, and with Christmas only a month away, she’d certainly want to mainline them whenever she had down time. But while happily ever after might be on some people’s agendas—and more power to them as long as they didn’t try to convert him to coupledom—he sure as hell wasn’t going to let it parade across his big screen TV.  

“Come on! Not even It’s a Wonderful Life?” she asked, but he stood firm.

“The only Christmas movie that flies in my apartment is Diehard.”

Her hands moved to her hips. “That is so not a Christmas movie.”  

“Take it or leave it, Kendrick. Yippie-ki-yay is all the holiday cheer you’re going to get out of me.”

Natalie frowned, but didn’t push her luck, so Jonah continued. “I’ll take that you cook, I clean bargain. I don’t mind doing all the dishes, and I wasn’t kidding when I said I can’t cook. No complaining about football or hockey—the Rogues are kicking ass again this year on the ice and I want to watch every game that I can. And for the love of all that it sacred and good, no bras on the shower curtain rod.”

           “Done.”

           His surprise must have stumbled over his face, because she laughed and tacked on, “What? You know I love hockey, too, and after meeting Finn Donnelly over the summer at that fundraiser at The Crooked Angel? I’m all-in for the Rogues. I promised you I’d cook, and the other stuff”—she lifted one shoulder beneath her light pink sweater—“I can stipulate, even if it is kind of grinchy. So, do we have a deal? I can come live with you until this mess is all fixed?”

           Jonah exhaled. “Yes, we have a deal.

Where you laugh when they’re happy, and you ache when they’re sad. Where you’re not two halves making a whole, but two wholes making something bigger, that only the two of you can make.” 

Jonah Sheridan is not only a skilled trauma surgeon but is also known as the Orgasm Whisperer amongst his colleagues. When Natalie, his best friend and fellow surgeon needed a place to stay because of a minor accident in her flat, Jonah had no choice but to offer her his place. It may not be a wise move though when their platonic friendship started to develop into something else. Living together albeit temporarily suddenly becomes uncomfortable and when he finds out about Natalie’s biggest secret, he needs to decide in which direction to take their friendship.

This friends-to-lovers romance, one of my favourite genres, surprisingly gave me more than what I hoped for. Not only does this book give you Natalie and Jonah’s epic love story, but embedded in it is the healing of a relationship between father and son, a doctor’s special connection to her patients and lovable secondary characters that make this more than just a romance novel. There are no antagonists in this story but rather one or two life-changing situations that happen to one of the main characters.

Jonah and Natalie’s connection from day one and how they dealt with the drama that happens in their lives makes their story special and so emotional. I loved that this author made her characters engaging and face adversity like proper grown-ups: by communicating and listening to each other. It felt a bit strange that the epilogue is from a minor character’s point of view so I am guessing that it will be his story next. I am thrilled that I found another gem of an author. I highly recommend this book!
