TWISTED is the first book in Aleatha Romig’s all-new new dark romance trilogy, TANGLED WEB, and now available on all platforms. 
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.

This is book 1 of a 3 part series. A series that is jam-packed with suspense, intrigue and questions. Twisted is laying the foundations for what I perceive to be a great story and read.

Laurel Carlson was beautiful, shy and extremely smart. She lived and breathed her work, leaving no room for a private life. Most of her time was spent with her colleagues doing the job that she loves.

Kader was tall dark and handsome and mysterious. He was sent to do a job. A job that was supposed to be straight forward. Only it wasn’t! There was something about Laurel that was different and he couldn’t understand what it was. Subconsciously, he was drawn to her and wanted to protect her.

When Laurel first sighted Kader, she was instantly attracted to him. Having been asked to attend an important gathering (which she hated doing), of influential people to help fund her work.

Unbeknownst to Laurel, after that night her life would change forever. She finds herself under the protection of Kader who she doesn’t know whether to trust or not. Can she trust anyone? She has so many questions and no one to give her the answers.

In a nutshell, Aleatha has done it again. She reels you in, leaving you wanting more. I’m not complaining though! I’m excited for part 2 as I know you will be, too.

The characters connected, but I think we’ve barely scratched the surface with these two. I look forward and impatiently to book 2 to at least answer some of my questions. And just between you and me, I have a sneaky suspicion on some of the answers *wink* Congratulations Aleatha on dangling that carrot yet again. Hail the queen of suspense and intrigue. I salute you.

TWISTED

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.

ANOTHER LIFE by K.L. Shandwick is now available!

Today we are thrilled to be sharing K.L. Shandwick’s all-new second chance, single dad, tear-jerker standalone romance.

What happens to you when you love someone with all of your heart, but that love now has nowhere to go? 

Heartthrob, Cole Harkin counted his blessings with a gorgeous wife and the couple’s excitement of a first baby on the way.

Just when he thought his world was complete, Cole becomes devastated and overwhelmed when his future is ripped out from under his feet. With little choice in the matter, Cole has to face living another life…

A very different life to the one he thought he and Grace had planned.  

ANOTHER LIFE is now available and free in KindleUnlimited!

GOODREADS

Reviewed by Emma-Louise on behalf of KFF

Any synopsis worded in a way such as this one was, it becomes clear very quickly what type of book this is about. Is this an easy book to read? Yes. Is it hard on the reader? Absolutely. Cole Harkin lost his heart and soul in an instant.

The darkness Cole carried within him at times is tangible. I witnessed his heart bleeding out of him more than once. Every single aspect of his persona is so true to the reality of his situation. The author nailed it! No matter how far he wanted to sink or how many times he wanted to quit, someone or something would keep him from faltering. He is a rock star but that doesn’t mean that he’s a grade A bad guy. His employees have been with him so long, they all act more like family. Throughout they stand by his side and call him on his bad moves.

Another Life spans over years of Cole’s life, moving through the vicious pain and anger at what he lost and moves onwards carrying us through his attempts to rebuild what he lost. His daughter Layla is his shining star. The reason he gets up and moves through the motions. I guess it’s true what they say. Love can rebuild a broken heart.

Another Life left me with deep thoughts and feelings about life and the cruelty of what happens to good people. It took real dedication to create a book with such accuracy and realism, enough light seeping in through the edges of the black to give the reader just a little hope.

This isn’t an easy book to get through for many reasons. It’s a foray into heartbreak and the lengths and breadths people will go through in order to survive. Shandwick has such potential and I adore where this book went. She certainly made me question my feeling. It held me captive even when I found it hard to continue. Cole Harkin will remain in my heart and mind for some time to come. Thank you, Ms. Shandwick, for giving voice to one of the biggest killers of women everywhere.

Meet K.L.

Writing came relatively later in life for K.L. Shandwick after a challenge by a friend led to The Everything Trilogy. She loves creating new characters and storylines. Her characters have flaws and she hopes this helps the connection between them and her readers. K.L. enjoys the journeys they take her on during the creation of her stories, and each character has his or her own voice. She doesn’t use prepared outlines for her stories preferring the characters to take their own direction as the story progresses. These days K.L. lives in the Yorkshire countryside in the UK and writes full-time.

I couldn’t wait for this little beauty to hit my Kindle. Ariel has fascinated me since I entered into the world of the Winston Isles. There was always something enigmatic about her. The quirkiness and her superhero abilities with a computer, I was always enthralled with her. The relationship she has with Penny has always warmed my heart. Ariel has the keen ability to see the truth even if it’s hidden under multiple camouflaged layers. She possesses a rare type of instinct; one that sees through people. She has this uncanny ability of being able to cut through all the nonsense and get to the crux of any issue. As I had previously said: Ariel and Penny are Thelma and Louise (before they drive off the cliff.)

Tristan comes with his fair share of secrets. Secrets he believes will ruin him forever, especially when it comes to his blossoming relationship with Ariel.

‘She was mine. After ten years, Ariel was mine again. Now all you need to do is hold on to her. Good luck with that.’ 

With ten years of growing up between them, their dance in this duet is careful and often cumbersome. Fears, ingrain insecurities and knee jerk reactions lead to several very combustible situations.

Mystery still surrounds the who, where, why and what of whom is behind all the attempts on Tristan’s life. The mystery has spanned the duet and not for one moment has this been drawn out or ever felt pointless. In a Nana Malone book, every situation happens for a reason and there is no useless padding.

Spending time with Sebastian and Penny is always a joy. After reading Cheeky Prince and Cheeky Royal they have become my favourite characters…well up until I got this book, that is. Ariel and Tristan have real chemistry, there are sparks and explosions all the way through this book. Nothing is concrete until it is.

The end has left me wondering one thing…who is the man with the grey eyes. Thank you, Ms Malone, for once again giving me a respite from real life.

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.

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.

I honestly didn’t think Warren would be able to surprise me even more than she’d already had in Overture, but with her wicked penmanship, she’s done it again and very well indeed. Ooh my, the surges of exuberance and angst in vividly described scenes had me sitting on the edge of my seat, and the cliffy… it’s excruciatingly frustrating. Waiting for Sonata, the last book in the North Security Series releasing this summer means my agony instantly became tenfold after turning the last page!

Samantha Brookes left me aghast at every turn. Gone are those days when she was a meek teenage prodigy. Watching her grow into a mature young woman whose voice is heard, who’s not afraid to defend and prove to herself and others, was a joy to read. And learning about how Liam had suffered in his youth provoked tears. A raw emotive romance in all aspects, having tissues at hand isn’t a bad idea.

“I don’t want to hurt for you. That isn’t how love should be”
“It’s the only way I know how.”
 

Liam. Well, he’s gained a special place in my heart regardless of his weaknesses. Underneath his tough exterior is a sensitive man totally hellbent on discovering the truth and protecting the only woman capable of bringing him to his knees. So why then does he still insist on shadowing Samantha when all she wants is her to be her own woman and on her terms? And believe you me, what evolved was so unexpectedly dangerous and nail-biting that I found myself rereading certain passages.

“All we know is how to survive, Samantha. And we will kill anything that threatens that.” 

Liam and Samantha’s story will tug at your heartstrings; the musical references will enchant you in every possible way. Two completely different characters struggle with the past and the present. Will Liam put back on his boxing gloves on and fight for both of their lives, their delicate relationship? Well, we’re going to have to be patient to see what happens.

“She’s the weakest part of you, laid out on a platter for your enemies.” 

Concerto overflows with everything I look for in a good book, and definitely a forbidden romance to be reckoned with. Warren’s delivered a well-written and well-thought-out plot that will keep you guessing, and make you turn the pages at lightning speed. The character development is spot on. You’ll love who you should and hate others with a vengeance. I, for one, couldn’t stand one certain interfering individual whose sharp tongue cut deeply. If there were ever a thriller that’s brought out feelings of helplessness, fear and anger in me this year, this is the one!

“Have you managed hundreds, thousands of shows? No, because you’re only a child. Not a very bright one…” 

Of course, I mustn’t forget to mention the steaminess! What I really liked most of all though is love comes first, the intimate scenes are just a delectable plus. Hmm…Liam certainly spices things up with his filthy tongue. No pun intended, ladies! Bravo Warren!

“When he touches me, I feel my whole body sing. The notes fill the air even if he steals my breath.”

CONCERTO

One day I had been a man with a death wish—and the next I was responsible for a twelve-year-old girl. And then she grew up into a beautiful woman. At every turn she’s been a surprise.I touch my fingers to her temple and stroke her cheek. “If there’s one thing I’ve learned in life it’s that everything will change. Don’t worry about your future. Do this because you love it, right now. Play. Compose. Perform. Sometimes all you have is right now.”My hand trails down her jaw, until the backs of my fingers rest against her throat. Her vocal cords vibrate as she speaks. Ripples of pleasure and pain resound through my body.“I’m not performing right now,” she whispers.

I have her tucked into the ivy, as deep as she can go. I’m blocking her with my body—keeping her within reach, keeping everyone else away. It’s the only way I’ve ever been able to breathe.
A knot forms in my throat.

“What do you want?”

Right now. The words move between us like the cool night breeze.

It shouldn’t be possible for her to live up to the image in my head, the perfection that I’ve been imagining every goddamn night. Except it doesn’t even do her justice.

She’s living breathing perfection.

Somehow, I’m leaning close. Is it only me who wants this? Her breath brushes over my lips. What do you want? I asked her. “This,” she whispers, and then she closes the centimeters between us.

Four weeks. That’s how long I’ve been apart from her.

It might as well have been four years. A lifetime of silence. The moment her lips touch mine I’m suffused with music, thousands of notes that she’s played for me, a million heartbeats.

By the time she pulls back I’m breathing hard. I can run a marathon barely breaking a sweat. Being near this woman is enough to break my body into pieces.

Forbidden fruit never tasted this sweet…

The world knows Samantha Brooks as the violin prodigy. She guards her secret truth—the desire she harbors for her guardian.

Liam North got custody of her six years ago. She’s all grown up now, but he still treats her like a child. No matter how much he wants her.

No matter how bad he aches for one taste.

Her sweet overtures break down the ex-soldier’s defenses, but there’s more at stake than her body. Every touch, every kiss, every night. The closer she gets, the more exposed his darkest secret.

She’s one step away from finding out what happened the night she lost her family. One step away from leaving him forever.

OVERTURE is the first novel in a brand new series from New York Times bestselling author Skye Warren.
