ESCAPE THE NIGHT by KA Graham is LIVE!

Today we are thrilled to be sharing K A Graham’s all-new dark contemporary romance,
ESCAPE THE NIGHT
The Sparrow and The Raven Novella

 

The hardest prison to escape is your mind.

My brother was always the smart one. The one people turned to when they needed guidance and comfort. I looked up to him my whole life. He was my best friend. He had his demons, but so did I.

Until the night my wife was taken away from me and my world crumbled to the ground. Where was he then? He became the face of the man that murdered my wife. All I saw was an enemy, no longer my brother.

It took me years to come to terms with my wife’s death and the fact that Dominic really wasn’t to blame.

I never dreamt I’d find love again, but then I met Morgan. She’s crept into my heart, and there was no way to escape, nor do I want to.

Do I continue to live for my deceased wife, or do I finally open myself up for a second chance at love?

Tyler Barnes what a broken man he became. Unlike whilst reading the prequel to Escape The Night, we saw the former happy and sated side of Tyler Barnes. A man who had demons but had found the sun to his moon, I knew at some point we would crash into the present where his reason for being would be torn from him. When that came, it broke something not just inside Tyler but also in me. This author threw him into a scenario nobody wishes to ever experience first-hand and it was done so well I cannot applaud her enough.

‘I long to live a normal life, whatever that may be, but I’m also scared to death to leave the security of these four walls I’ve become accustomed to. It’s funny how we say prisoners are institutionalised, but what about the crazies like me? We’re the ones who are literally institutionalised.’

Angry at the world and at his big brother Dominic for his perceived wrong doings that fateful night; Tyler is full of rage and darkness. In enters Morgan, the one person currently who can see into Tyler and not just see his current incarnation but who he was and even who he can become. Knowing the path he travels and the fragility of life Morgan becomes the maiden who can soothe the savage beast and soothe him she does.

Escape The Night wasn’t a book of insta-lust or even insta-love, thankfully, this would never have worked when it came down to these two destroyed characters. The book moves through time, jumping forward enough so that there is marked improvement but not at the cost of reader enjoyment or understanding.

The romance is slow burning but is off the charts hot when the crazy smex scenes roll in. Who can forget them, my Kindle got hotter just at the mere thought of the words.

Dominic and Isabella both have page time in this book and how could I forget Miss Raelynn. Bat crazy and as loyal as they come, Raelynn was a favourite of mine in the first book and in this release she just surpasses every thought or expectation I have of her. Everyone needs a Raelynn in their life, just sayin’.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I’d go as far as to say I’d happily read it again and again.
Well done Ms. Graham and thank you.

TEASING THE PRINCESS by Nana Malone is LIVE!

Today we are delighted to be sharing Nana Malone’s second contemporary romance in the Royals United Duet, TEASING THE PRINCESS

Roone…

She’s gone. Someone took her from me.

I knew I wasn’t supposed to fall in love. But I did it anyway. And now it might have cost my princess – the princess – her life.

I won’t stop until I find her. But when I do, I’ll need to stay away. She won’t survive the scandal. There’s no way I can love her and protect her. I’ll have to choose one.

Jessa…

Apparently, I can’t trust anyone.

I’ve never been in love before. Leave it to me to fall for the wrong guy.

A liar.

Roone Scot cost me a life I loved. So now I’m on a quest I didn’t ask for. One that will lead me to a crown I’m not sure I want.

To a family I didn’t know I needed.

Reviewed by Emma on behalf of KFF

Picking up from where Royal Tease ended, this installment propels the reader back into the maelstrom that is Roone and Jessa. The cliffhanger at the end of the last one had my jaw on the ground, thanks for that mini panic attack, Ms. Malone. These two are so very similar. The sparks fly continuously. Lies and untold truths surface at the most impossible moments. Those who are supposed to be brethren are not who they appear to be, leaving both the main characters questioning almost everything from the minute they were born.

Jessa, for a considerable amount of this duet, is forced into a defensive stance; reacting more than she would like. Able to defend herself and those she comes to love. I was awestruck with the considerable amount of twists and turns. Almost every event and action created cause to be questioned.

Thankfully the heat and romance were still off the charts. True Nana Malone style, the characters aren’t easily wooed or subdued. Even when they come together it still takes work from both sides to keep the flowers blossoming and the plant healthy.

One particular character questions the rightfulness of their relationship and whether it would be accepted by anyone in a station of power.

“…I think it’s fantastic. You love her. Clearly, she loves you. So why are we even talking about it?”
“Well, okay, if it doesn’t matter to you, it will certainly matter to the Council.”
 

Memories are turned on their head and their true meanings are uncovered for both Roone and Jessa. So many ventriloquists are pulling strings from the backgrounds it made my head begin to spin. As it all was laid out though it made so much more sense. Questions that were asked way back in the beginning of this series are finally answered. Just don’t believe for one minute that all the questions we have are finally answered. That’s not who this author is at all.

Even on uneven footing, Jessa took so many risks to uncover the truth. She was determined and sure, such a strong heroine who also needed tenderness and love, much like most real-life women. Jessa spoke to me, and I empathised with her and her plight on a fundamental level.

‘It was weird being home. It had only been a week, but it felt like a lifetime. Like everything in my life had changed…the things I knew to be true, the things I knew to be me.’ 

I would be remiss and would certainly have poor judgment if I did not mention Ariel. She has been on the page since the very beginning of these duets and I have grown to adore who she is. Sacrifice is not a stranger to this woman and I can certainly see why the author took her in the direction she did.

“Don’t you get it? Those guys in there, they are my family. I don’t want to have to say goodbye to them. I just wanted to slip into the darkness and start a new chapter in my life.” 

I have come to adore these whacky people and their intricate relationships. The checks and minus’ of life; like any family they argue and fight, they will always fight for each other harder than ever.
Thank you, Ms. Malone, for once again outdoing yourself and bringing us yet another wonderful installment from the Winston Isles. Team WI all the way!!

ROYAL TEASE (Royals United Book 1)
is also available!

Roone…

The plan was simple, go undercover, protect my best friend’s little sister. It should have been the easiest assignment of my life.

But Jessa isn’t your usual princess. She’s feisty, and sexy, and stubborn, and gorgeous. Did I mention she hates me? From the moment I carried her over my shoulder out of a bar fight, I’ve been persona non grata.

But the stakes are too high to mess this up. The monarchy is at risk.

Jessa…

I can’t stand Roone Scot.

There I said it. Shoot me.

We go together like lightening and water. His quiet, steady obstinance is going to cost me my job. A job I have worked very hard to keep. No one is messing this up for me. I’ve had enough crazy in my life.

Not to mention the way his eyes track me every time I move, makes me uncomfortable in an I-need-my-batter-operated-boyfriend kind of way.

But even if I wanted him – which I don’t, but if I did – I can’t ever have him. My life is not my own. I’ve known that since birth.

EMMA’S REVIEW

MEET NANA

USA Today Bestselling Author, NANA MALONE’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she borrowed from her cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since.

With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters. Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

The books in her series have been on multiple Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble best seller lists as well as the iTunes Breakout Books list and most notably the USA Today Bestseller list.

Until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find Nana working hard on additional books for her series as well as other fun, sassy romances for characters that won’t leave her alone. And if she’s not working or hiding in the closet reading, she’s acting out scenes for her husband, daughter and puppy in sunny San Diego.

We govern with broken wings, using fear and beauty as our weapons.
Through inherited traditions, each of us are born to play individual parts in our reign. In previous years, the transition has been calm.
Until our generation is unveiled.
Newcomers step forward to wreak havoc amongst us. Secrets are revealed, loyalties are tested, and the dark truth of our town is forced into the light.
Townspeople, prepare to meet your judge, jury, and executioner.
We are the Angels of Belle Meade.
We’ll be coming for you.

Reviewed by Emma-Louise on behalf of KFF

With the number of books I read, it is difficult to find a premise that is new to me. New adult paranormal romance with so many new spins, I felt a little dizzy at times.

Lennox, Amilee, and Emerson have a strong bonded friendship, one that has stood the test of time. That is until they reach their nineteenth birthday and things change…dramatically.
The premise of the Angels is more like: Judge, Jury, Executioner for the town of Belle Meade, and this is as far as I’m going into this because I want you to experience it for the first time whilst reading.

Belle Meade, to me, is built on secrets and lies. The girls had no idea what was underneath their feet for most of this book and what they were told was spoon fed to them in small noses.

Edric and his family are very unusual characters. It took me a considerable amount of time to figure out what on earth was going on with them. He was the kind of character I wanted to sink my teeth into and get to grips with. His attraction to Lennox was swift and profound.

‘On the third step, I peek over my shoulder. Could he stare any harder at me?
“You aren’t going to kill me, are you?”
“If I were going to, do you think I’d let you know? Murderers don’t advertise. They lurk in the dark, waiting to pounce on their victim, listening to their blood race through their veins, desperate to spill it.”’
 

Lennox has so many issues to overcome throughout this book that at times I just wanted to put her in my pocket. Her mother is a right act, and I don’t mean in a good way.

This is a new author for me and I’d not be lying if I said I wanted very much to read some more of what she has. Thank you for a new take on something I didn’t think could be done any different. Well done and bravo.

One of the windows looks out over Belle Meade. Every landmark is easy to spot from this vantage point. Main Street lined with cars. Shoppers buzzing in and out of stores. City Hall packed with business suits.Across from us is a telescope. When I move toward it, Edric blocks my path. I place my hand low on his stomach and stand on my tiptoes, knowing it will distract him.“Let me take a peek, Edric.” My lips feather his skin.“Be my guest.” He moves out of my way, and I walk past him, breathing in a lungful of air scented with his cologne. The cedarwood isn’t too strong but enough to grab my attention.I place my eye up to the eyepiece and gasp. I jerk back, only to return for another look.“It’s on my house.”“It’s not what you think.” He wrings his hands together, but guilt doesn’t fall from his face like I half-expect.“Why?”“Why, what?”“Why is your telescope pointed at the Mayor’s Manor? Specifically, why is it pointed at my bedroom window?”“Curiosity.” He releases a long, annoyed breath.“You’re a Peeping Tom.” A deep scowl creases my forehead. Edric’s been watching me.

“Call it whatever you want, Lennox. I wanted to look at you, so I did.” He runs his thumb over his bottom lip and smirks.

The news should scare me. His viewing me in secret doesn’t elicit fear, though, and I’m not sure why. I want him to watch me, to see me. Maybe he’ll be the first person who finally does, even if it is in the creepiest way possible.

On the other hand, it’s an invasion of my privacy. “What have you seen?” I ask, because even though I shouldn’t get giddy from the idea, a thrill runs through me.

“Just a girl, who sometimes seems to struggle with who she is. So, she writes in her journal a lot, because it’s the only place she can tell her true fears and desires.” He shakes his head. Is he fearful of what he’ll say next? “I’d give anything to know the secrets you whisper into those pages, Lennox.”
 

 
 

 

MEET LINDSEY 

Lindsey Iler has had her feet planted in the state of Michigan since she was born and she still lives there with her husband and four kids.

When she’s not writing, she’s spending time with family and friends, listening to music, reading (obviously), and hopefully just enjoying every moment in life. She has a twisted sense of humor and tends to speak honestly.

Lindsey writes mature young adult/new adult contemporary romance. She falls in love with every character that pops into her head and is notorious for writing long chapters in her notes on her iPhone. It’s embarrassing how many started/unfinished projects are on that thing. She finds inspiration from music and the people around her.

Reviewed by Emma-Louise on behalf of KFF

Having read Jace’s book where we came to know Ian, it became horrifically obvious that when his book finally hit the airwaves it would not be a comfortable read. And boy, was I not wrong about that one. A forbidden relationship knowing no bounds or restraint ‘All of Me’ is a book that comes around full circle. Fulfilling the answers that were never even asked of the characters, having witnessed the truly abhorrent way that Ian and Jace were raised, makes their bond impactful and necessary, as necessary as breathing. Without one there is no other and throughout all the stubbornness and guilt that is Ian, we see how solid the love and invisible cords that bind them are.

Grace is very much the kind of woman one has come to expect from this author. A woman, who is strong even as she is weak, is empowered as she is enslaved. Her family is her biggest joy and the creation of her life-sized nightmares. These nightmares are no monster under your childhood bed. They are not even stuff of the worst nightmares we could ever conceive, these devils, and monsters are wearing a mask of an angel who speaks of justice and truth. This is so false it just can’t be true. A long game so tangled and juxtaposed it is almost too wrong to believe. Friends in high places and debts owing that are called to arms in a bullish tactic of depravity.

‘…darts of anxiety impaling my senses. A warning to be careful. To take heed.
Push.
Pull.
Push.
Pull.
I felt as if I was being yanked in every direction.
My heart propelling me forward, and my rational side attempting to reel me back in.’
 

One seeker a hero and another who sees evil when they look in the mirror, shadows and tattoos of a battle of good versus evil, how could someone believe to their core that they are so wrong? Grace and Ian are two completely different people she believes when they are introduced. This is a complete fallacy. Ian uses everything in his arsenal in his pursuit of Grace, knowing there is something there that makes her intrinsically different from any other woman he has ever met. I sure wished he had had a crystal ball when he started filling his dance card with her would he have travelled the road he chose if he had known the cards Grace swaddled at her bosom.

‘This kiss that meant everything.
Kisses are only for the ones you love most.’
 

This author has a pattern to her books I have discovered. One that throws pretty much everything including the kitchen sink at her poor abused characters; ‘All of Me’ was a story of doubling down the pain and anguish. Throughout all the sharp edges, blood and pain a bond stronger than the strongest metal was created between Ian and Grace. Moving apart for them was as difficult to perform as you could ever imagine. Ian saw himself as the black knight, the evil-doer and the bottom feeder of the book. He knew he should stay away from Grace but if he had we’d not have held witness to one of the best-forbidden romances of the year.

‘Not an easy kind or a slow or a loyal kind. It wasn’t the kinda person settled for, and I knew, with every part of me, that it wouldn’t be fleeting.
It was the all-encompassing kind. The kind that hit you fast and came on hard and scored itself so deeply in your heart that it’d forever beat with it.’
 

The sex scenes were off the charts, creating a chart all for themselves. Intense even from the beginning of their foray, some pieces could have been accused of a certain amount of cheese factor, though there was cheese, I never felt it was fanciful nonsense it made a certain amount of sense.

‘He spread me wider, the feel of him almost more than I could bear.
So perfect and wrong.
The man my heaven.
The man my hell.
Everything I wanted, a tease of what I could never keep.’
 

Racing through the pages and asking more questions than I knew what to do with I found my heartbeat racing and my mind whirling. So much was on the line to the very end. Friends and family played a huge part in the conclusion of the angst in this one. I have never been as torn as I was when I witnessed someone slapped in cuffs. I sat in my chair with tears running down my face and an orange-sized lump in my throat. I cried often whilst reading, but I have never EVER had an actual lump in my throat. I could actually feel the sobs lodged in my chest.

Ms. Jackson creates stories with so much intensity. Angst and pain are always there too. She is a beautiful sadist whilst spinning her daily wears. This book has ruined me. Hand on heart this seldom happens to me, I tend to live the grief whilst reading the book and never carry it with me in my day-to-day life…until now. Bravo awesome author you and thank you so very much for doing Ian the justice he deserved. You rock!

REVIEW BLITZ ~ ENGAGED TO THE EMT by Piper Rayne

Today we are delighted to be sharing ENGAGED TO THE EMT by Piper Rayne

A Sexy FAKE RELATIONSHIP rom com standalone written by a duo of two USA Bestselling Authors

Luca Bianco is a jerk. There I said it.

He thinks he’s so suave and sexy, walking around in his paramedic uniform stretched out by all his hard muscles and saving lives every day. I swear he thinks every woman in the world would kill for a chance to be with him.

Men like Luca are good for one thing only—a one-night stand—not commitment. I don’t care if my friend did pay good money at a charity bachelor auction for me to go on a date with him, I refuse to do it.

That is until Luca offers me a deal I can’t refuse, and I agree to be his pretend fiancé.

The heat that’s simmered between us for a decade ignites and I’m not sure even Luca will be able to kickstart my heart after I call code blue.

What’s that saying? Love is blind?

Not true. I can see this head-on collision coming a mile away.

Holy Moly! These Bianco brothers need to come with a warning label. Hot blooded Italian men with more oomph than a stampeding herd of elephants. Finally we get the book of the baby of the family, Luca. His ma’s favourite baby boy, the one who’s reckless and very carefree; maybe too reckless at times. His latest stunt came as no surprise to this reader; he would hate to disappoint his family.

Lauren has hate/hate feelings when it comes to Luca. All this revolves around childhood receptions. Lauren is very much a take charge and independent woman who won’t live her life by anyone else’s rules.

“You would’ve hurt me. Dating you would have been like signing up to get my heart broken”

Like any other book by these authors, there is comedy and there is seriousness. Family is an integral part of this series, be it by blood or by choice. The front that people show versus their real selves can cause so many bumps in the road. Along the way in this book, this very issue bites one particular character square in the bum.

The continuing question of who is setting the vacant warehouse fires continues on in this instalment and the answers are finally revealed. Thank you, ladies.

Once the heat and passion of these two got going it was hot and heavy for a considerable amount of pages and I was not sorry about that for one minute. The scorched the pages. Piper and Rayne are able to create such deeply rooted and emotionally feeling characters. Luca and Lauren were people I could relate to and was cheering for. Considering their past and the differences they fit together effortlessly.

I truly enjoyed visiting with the Bianco’s and their wonderful ladies. Well done ladies and thank you again.

The light from the street reflects the humor shining in his eyes. “I’m just sick of the fighting.”
“Fighting is what we do best. It’s basically how we communicate.” Then all the puzzle pieces join together in my head. I’m so stupid. “You want something.”
We pull up in front of my house just as I realize what a fucking moron I am.
“Nope.” He takes the keys, grabs the bag of food and gets out of the car.
He’s totally playing me. I might not be a psychologist who can quickly spot a liar, but Luca, I know too well. Not well, but when it comes to our interactions—I know him. And this nice Luca, taking me to a Hawks game, buying me dinner, wanting to eat with me…this isn’t the Luca Bianco I know.
I climb out of his car, the slam of the door echoing down the dark residential street. “Tell me what it is you want.”
His lips remain straight, not even a hint of a smile or smirk.
Another clear sign that this isn’t the Luca I know.
“Come on. Let’s eat.” He nods in the direction of my house.
“By prolonging whatever it is, you’re just pissing me off, which means if you need something, I’m more than likely going to say no. Or we could play a little game…”
“How about we eat?” He waits patiently as I insert the key into my door, disengage the alarm that Cristian, Luca’s brother insisted we get installed.
Police officers. Jeez.
We step inside and he’s the one to shut the door and flick the lock.
“Planning to have your way with me?” I’m not serious as I walk into the kitchen to grab us some drinks, utensils, and napkins.
The sound of the television blaring drifts into the kitchen seconds later.
With my hands full, I head back into the living room. “Feel free to make yourself at home,” I deadpan, handing Luca a Vitamin Water and a napkin.
“Thanks.” He lifts the napkin and drink. “And thanks.”
We sit on the couch because although our house is nice and newly redecorated thanks to Maddie’s mad skills, the family room area is small and the best place to see the television is the couch. No worries though, there’s still a cushion between us.
I open up my box of food, a little bit of steam hitting my face. “I can’t just sit here and watch soccer with you and not know what you want.”
I hate that I’ve had to resort to being sincere in my request.
He opens up his own box and I’m a tad jealous I didn’t get the burger. It smells and looks delicious.
Luca doesn’t respond, just stands and heads into the kitchen.
He knows our house way too well thanks to his brothers always suggesting we meet here when we go out.
I pop a cauliflower floret into my mouth, tasting the Korean flavor makes my mouth water. Opening up my Vitamin Water to cool my tongue, I ignore Luca’s return, instead, fixating on the television as he rounds the coffee table in front of me. The couch dips with the weight of his body which is now closer than before.
I’ve never been alone with Luca, much less this close. I feel a shift in our volatile relationship like the stillness before a storm. It’s too quiet. It’s too calm. Too…enjoyable.
“Here.” My gaze shifts from the television, although I couldn’t tell you the score of the game and I see he’s holding half his burger out to me.
“What’s this?” I ask, loading my mouth with another califloret.
Man, it’s hot.
“I think you had a little bit of drool dripping from your mouth when I opened the container. How about we share?”
He smiles. A smile I’ve only ever seen on his face with his friends, or his brothers, and especially his mom. He doesn’t even wear this smile when he’s with girls. At least not that I’ve ever seen. That fact runs around my stomach stirring up the butterflies to max flight.
I don’t like this.
It’s too damn calm.
Where are the eighty mile per hour winds?
“Luca, if you don’t tell me what you want, I’m going to kick you out of my house.” I take half the burger and slide my cauliflower and fries closer to him as an offering.
“You can’t just wait?” he asks, seeming disappointed.
“HA!” I point to him with a greasy finger. “You do want something from me. Tell me what it is.”
“You’re ridiculous you know that, right? A normal person would wait.”
I shake my head. “No, they wouldn’t.”
See, this feels good. This feels right.
“LUCA!” I scream.
He blows out a breath. “Fine. I need a favor from you.”

ENGAGED TO THE EMT by Piper Rayne is LIVE!

Today we are delighted to be sharing
Piper Rayne’s second chance romance,
ENGAGED TO THE EMT

 

A Sexy FAKE RELATIONSHIP rom com standalone written by a duo of two USA Bestselling Authors

Luca Bianco is a jerk. There I said it.

He thinks he’s so suave and sexy, walking around in his paramedic uniform stretched out by all his hard muscles and saving lives every day. I swear he thinks every woman in the world would kill for a chance to be with him.

Men like Luca are good for one thing only—a one-night stand—not commitment. I don’t care if my friend did pay good money at a charity bachelor auction for me to go on a date with him, I refuse to do it.

That is until Luca offers me a deal I can’t refuse, and I agree to be his pretend fiancé.

The heat that’s simmered between us for a decade ignites and I’m not sure even Luca will be able to kickstart my heart after I call code blue.

What’s that saying? Love is blind?

Not true. I can see this head-on collision coming a mile away.
