Veiled By Desire Cover

Veiled by Desire: A Laith Novel

Publication Date: November 19, 2019

Genre: Fantasy

Publisher: The Parliament House Press

In Laith, when the moons are high, Tavarra is allowed to walk the land as a human for one day, losing her seahorse-like tail. But should she remain out of the water, a curse will overtake her, turning her into a beast with sharp fangs and long claws. A beast that, on some nights, takes the shape of a rampaging, uncontrollable monster.

Rhona, along with her village, are under a sinister leader’s control. Their leader has taken Rhona from the boy she loves, stripped away her abilities and, under the threat of killing everyone she loves, forces her on a dangerous task to retrieve a dark prism that will increase his already massive powers.

When Tavarra and Rhona cross paths, they discover they need each other. Rhona knows how to help the cursed sea creature, while Tavarra knows where to find the dark prism. They embark on a mission that could help them break Tavarra’s spell and save Rhona’s family and village. But with an untamable beast inside Tavarra, nothing is certain..,

Excerpt

Seven years of this. Tavarra closed her eyes and gripped the chains around the tree that bound her wrists together. She howled with urgency, screamed, and bared her fangs. As she stared up at the twin moons in the darkening sky, she knew her fate was coming. A fire spread throughout her entire body with a wicked touch, and she shook violently.

“The chains will hold this time,” her friend Eza said, landing on Tavarra’s shoulder. If Tavarra killed the pesky bat, there would be nothing, no one, and she had grown to love Eza after all these years.

“Get out of here, Eza! Now!” Tavarra screamed.

“I’ll be right here,” the bat murmured and flew up into the tree above. Eza looked incredibly similar to a fairy except for the thin blackened wings, fangs, and sharper-pointed ears. She was a little taller than the size of Tavarra’s hand from wrist to the tip of the claw on her middle finger.

Tavarra was trying to fight the change. She would win this time. As she breathed in the scents of Laith, Tavarra knew it was a lie, and indeed, she knew she’d failed when her skin began to stretch. She could feel her face taking on a new shape, and that was when the terror came because the night would be unknown to her. That was what haunted her the most. Tavarra held back the tears, unwilling to break, unwilling to bend and show weakness.

All that remained in her soul, heart, and existence, was hunger. She yearned and thirsted for blood, meat, and bones.

MY REVIEW:

THIS IS THE MOST CREATIVE, UNIQUE, TOUCHING, FULL OF HEART STORY!!!!!!! This Author just keeps writing these books that I love. Most people who read my reviews, blog, social media, etc know that one of my favorite books is Clouded By Envy! Well, Veiled By Desire takes place in the same world that two of the main characters from Clouded come from, the world of Laith. Although it is a standalone. No need to have read Clouded By Envy, but it will have added to the enjoyment.

The author does such a great job with world building in this book. The world of Laith is filled with different and strange things. Woods that bleed, and that come alive, people with powers, four leaf clover that has power, and there’s even a werewolf in this one. The details In the world building are so well described, that you can picture it like you’re there in Laith yourself. She leaves just enough to the imagination to keep us engaged. It’s perfection on the page.

The characters…this author always writes her characters well. She writes dialogue so seamlessly that the characters become real, and you become wrapped up in them. I fell so in love with these characters, that I still find it hard to choose a favorite. Every time I try I end up with a bunch, lol! Eza, Tavarra, Perin, Quil & Rhona. They are all such great characters, I can’t say enough about. I feel like I could write a paragraph for each of them. But I won’t. I will leave it up to you to read the book and learn how AMAZING, how BRILLIANT this cast of characters really is!!!!

Don’t miss this AMAZING book!!! I highly, highly recommend it to all!!! INFINITY OF STARS for this one!!

Clouded by Envy (Laith #1)

37654382._SY475_

Brenik has always been envious of his twin sister, Bray. Growing up as fairy-like creatures, known as bats, everything came easier to Bray. While Brenik spent his time in her shadows, never feeling he was enough. After escaping their world of Laith, and living on Earth for ten years, Brenik attempts to strike a deal with the Stone of Desire to become human. Though true humanity is not an option, he will accept the curse that will alter him to get as close as he can.

Living in a tree trunk for the past year hasn’t been easy for Bray, more so after her brother disappears again. When a human boy and his brother, Wes, find her, a new friendship is struck. Through Wes, Bray learns there can be more to life than waiting within a tree. But worrying over where Brenik has vanished to always remains in the back of her mind.

When Bray reunites with Brenik, she realizes she must help him break the curse after she discovers the need for blood is beginning to overpower him. The curse not only damages those who get close to Brenik, but it could also destroy whatever is blooming between Bray and Wes.

READ MY REVIEW HERE!!


Books in the collection:

Loving Kalvinstandalone friends-to-lovers second-chance romance

I knew it would end in disaster, but I didn’t listen to reason. I didn’t care. Because I loved him so much.

Kalvin Kennedy ruled my heart.

Until he destroyed it.

Shattered it so completely that I became someone else. Someone I loathed. Someone who repeatedly lied to her loved ones.

So, I ran.

From him. From myself. Desperate to hide my new reality.

But I could only run so far.

 

Saving Bradstandalone enemies-to-lovers romance

I need to escape.

To put as much distance between me and that monster so I can start living my life.

Yet, even the vast Atlantic Ocean isn’t enough to sever the connection. To allow me to forget how he’s ruined me. His hold is more than just physical. He has a vise grip on my head and my heart, and I can’t breathe, can’t think, can’t function.

So, I do everything to blot it out.

Until he reappears in my life.

Brad McConaughey. So hot. So infuriating. So in love with my best friend.

Every word out of Brad’s mouth makes me want to throat punch him or kick him in the nuts.

But he makes me feel, and I hate him for it. A part of me might actually love him for it.

 

Seducing Kadenstandalone forbidden romance

When I was a little girl, I dreamed of falling in love. The all-consuming sweep-you-off-your-feet kind of love I swooned over in movies.

It didn’t take long for that fairytale notion to come crashing down around me. Now I’m trapped in a marriage I despise with no way out.

The only light in the dark is Kaden Kennedy—the one true love of my life. He doesn’t know he is, because I’m forced to love him from afar, condemned to toss and turn at night, crying over everything I want and all I can never have.

Seeing him day in, day out, destroys me, but there’s no other choice; I had to push him away to keep him safe.

Because if my husband ever finds out I’m in love with one of my students, I won’t be the only one in danger.

 

Forgiving Kevenstandalone second-chance romance

They say you never forget your first love, but I’m determined to prove Keven Kennedy is just a random boy from my past.

It’s not like I still think about him after all this time. Or daydream about how hot his kisses were and what it felt like to have his hands on my skin.

Nope, that’s not me. I’m in a happy place in my life. Engaged to a great man and finishing the last year of my photography degree.

But since I returned to Massachusetts, everything reminds me of the boy who ripped my heart to shreds. Especially when my fiancé’s constant business trips, and dwindling attention, raises old fears to the surface.

And then the unthinkable happens—Keven saunters back into my life, turning it upside down once more.

It’s ironic he thinks he’s protecting me when the only one I need protecting from is him.

Excerpt from Loving Kalvin (Kennedy Boys #4)

LANA

I change the bed, while Kal clears away the dirty clothes and the empty boxes. Then we get changed—sleep shorts and a tank for me and track shorts for Kal—and snuggle up in bed, watching a movie on his laptop. My head is resting on his bare chest, testing my willpower to the limit. Kal is all sharp angles, and defined muscles, and my hands start wandering without permission.

“Are you feeling me up?” I can hear the amusement in his voice.

No point denying it. Not when my fingers are currently exploring every dip and curve of his abs. “Yeah. Got a problem with it?”

He laughs lightly. “Hell no. Don’t stop.” His arm is firm around my waist, and, with his other hand, he plays with my hair. “Lana,” he whispers.

“Yeah,” I whisper back, looking up at him.

“I love you.”

Tears well in my eyes. “I love you too.”

I want this to be real. So, so much.

I wish there was no other secret between us.

No risk of this all falling apart.

Not when it feels so exquisite. So perfect. So right.

We’re on borrowed time and I’m clinging to it like a drowning woman clinging to a life belt.

Review:

This is such an awesome collection of books!! The Kyler books are the first three books and introduce us to the Kennedy’s world. But this collection of books four through seven are all standalone books in that world, and they’re AMAZING!!!!

A quick overview of each one:

LOVING KALVIN is a friends-to-lovers, second chance romance. This is a beautiful romance. It’s about two soulmates finding their way back to each other. It’s about forgiveness, understanding and loyalty.

“If you love someone, really love someone, you stand by them, even when they’ve screwed up. Especially then. You forgive them for their mistakes”

SAVING BRAD is an enemies-to-lovers romance. This is about two people struggling. One with an outside monster making it so she can’t truly live her life, and the other from an inside monster keeping him from enjoying his life. These two enemies come together in a very powerful way. Don’t miss the twist & turns of suspense, or the amazing love story that overcomes all odds.

SEDUCING KADEN is a forbidden romance. Normally I don’t like to read books with cheating, because somebody is going to get hurt and I don’t enjoy reading about that. But when I’m reading about Eva, who had a terrible, loveless upbringing and was told at 14 that she would be marrying this older man and was forced into this loveless, abusive marriage. Now I can deal with reading about cheating.

Kaden adores Eva. He feels protective of her, and wants to help her. Eva adores Kaden. She won’t let him help, because she feels sure it will get him killed. This is a very emotional, passionate, intense love story!! Two hearts that are broken when apart, but have an intense connection when they are together. But the odds against them are so great, will they ever be able to really be together as one? Don’t miss this this beautiful, suspenseful love story!

FORGIVING KEVEN is a second chance romance. Keven never got over his first love from high school. He didn’t even date anyone after her. Then he sees her through FBI surveillance, where he works. They are trying to take down her fiancé. All Keven can think about is how he needs to protect Cheryl. Will Cheryl forgive Keven for the past? Can he protect her from her fiancé? Don’t miss the suspenseful twist and turns in this passionate book about a very sexy, protective FBI Agent and his first and only love!

“No one else ever measured up to you, and, even if I had found someone worthy, how could I be with her when I’m still madly in love with you?”

All these books have happy ever afters. The Kennedy Boys are a rare species of men, brothers who are always there for each other. We see this in the Kyler Collection and more so as each book goes along. Don’t miss out on these New Adult Romances that will keep your heart pounding long after you finish reading.

Cover Reveal: The Harder You Fall by L.A. Cotton

 

THE HARDER YOU FALL

 

COVER & BLURB REVEAL

We are excited to share the cover and blurb for The Harder You Fall, the highly anticipated final story in the Rixon Raiders series from bestselling author L A Cotton.



To celebrate, L A is giving away a signed paperback ARC with a $10 Amazon GC over on her Facebook Page

 

BLURB

Mya Hernandez has scars.
 
The kind that run deep and leave marks.
Rixon is only supposed to be a temporary place to hide, but it’s quickly becoming something more. 
She’s almost certain it has nothing to do with the blond-haired, blue-eyed football player who makes her laugh. Who makes her believe in fairy tales again.
Even if she knows her life is destined to be nothing more than a tragedy.
 
Asher Bennet has secrets.
 
Not the scandalous kind, but the ones that fester, slowly eating away at your soul.
On the face of it, he’s Mr Popular, always down for a party and causing a little mayhem. 
But on the inside, he just wants someone to see him. Really see him. Too bad the one girl who sees past his facade has already friend-zoned him. 
It’s probably for the best though.
 
She’s different.
A fighter.
She’s everything he wants but can never have.
 
Until Mya’s past and Asher’s present collide in ways neither of them saw coming.
 
And suddenly the thing you need most is the very thing you’re supposed to hate.
*** 

 ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Edgy. Angsty. Addictive Romance.

Author of mature young adult and new adult novels, L A is happiest writing the kind of books she loves to read: addictive stories full of teenage angst, tension, twists and turns.Home is a small town in the middle of England where she currently juggles being a full-time writer with being a mother/referee to two little people. In her spare time (and when she’s not camped out in front of the laptop) you’ll most likely find L A immersed in a book, escaping the chaos that is life.

Release Blitz: Dirty Letters by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

DIRTY LETTERS IS LIVE!

 

A Contemporary Romance Novel

New York Times Bestselling Authors Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

BLURB

I’d never forgotten him—a man I’d yet to meet.

Griffin Quinn was my childhood pen pal, the British boy who couldn’t have been more different from me. Over the years, through hundreds of letters, we became best friends, sharing our deepest, darkest secrets and forming a connection I never thought could break.

Until one day it did.

Then, out of the blue, a new letter arrived. A scathing one—one with eight years of pent-up anger. I had no choice but to finally come clean as to why I stopped writing.

Griffin forgave me, and somehow we were able to rekindle our childhood connection. Only now we were adults, and that connection had grown to a spark. Our letters quickly went from fun to flirty to downright dirty, revealing our wildest fantasies. So it only made sense that we would take our relationship to the next level and see each other in person.

Only Griff didn’t want to meet. He asked that I trust him and said it was for the best. But I wanted more—more Griff, in the flesh—so I took a big chance and went looking for him. People have done crazier things for love.

But what I found could change everything.

Excerpt Reveal: Dirty Letters by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

Dirty Letters

Release Date: 11/05/2019

 

A Contemporary Romance Novel

 

New York Times Bestselling Authors Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

 

EXCERPT REVEAL:

 

The small dining room table had a pile of mail. I’d had Dad’s mail forwarded to my house, so mostly it was just catalogs and junk. Once a month, Mrs. Cascio sent me everything that arrived, even though I’d told her it wasn’t necessary. I mindlessly fingered through the pile, not expecting to see anything worth keeping. But I stopped at an envelope addressed to me—well, not me, but Luca Ryan. That was a name I hadn’t heard in a long time. In second grade, my teacher, Mrs. Ryan, started a pen pal writing program with a small town in England. We weren’t allowed to use our real last names for safety reasons, so the entire class used her last name—hence I was Luca Ryan. I checked out the return address for the sender’s name. 

G. Quinn 

Wow, really? It couldn’t be.

I squinted at the postmark. It was from a PO box in California, not England, but I didn’t know any other Quinn other than Griffin. And the handwriting did look pretty familiar. But it had been close to eight years since we’d exchanged letters. Why would he write now? Curious, I ripped it open and scanned right to the bottom of the letter for the name. Sure enough, it was from Griffin. I started at the beginning. 

 

Dear Luca, 

 

Do you like scotch? I remember you said you didn’t like the taste of beer. But we never did get around to comparing our taste in hard liquor. Why is that, you might ask? Let me remind you—because you stopped answering my letters eight damn years ago. I wanted to let you know, I’m still pissed off about that. My mum used to say I hold grudges. But I prefer to think of it as I remember the facts. And the fact of the matter is, you suck. There, I’ve said it. I’ve been holding that shit in for a long time. Don’t get me wrong—I’m not obsessive or anything. I don’t sit in my house thinking about you all day long. In fact, there have been months that go by when thoughts of you don’t even enter my brain. But then some random thing will pop into my head out of the blue. Like I’ll see some kid in a pram eating black licorice, and I’ll think of you. Side note—I’ve tried it again as an adult, and I still think it tastes like the bottom of my shoe, so perhaps it’s that you just have no taste. You probably don’t even like scotch. Anyway, I’m sure this letter won’t find its way to you. Or if by some miracle it does, you won’t answer. But if you’re reading this, you should know two things. 

1. The Macallan 1926 is worth the extra cash. Goes down smooth. 

2. You SUCK. 

 

Later, traitor, Griffin 

 

What in the hell?

BLURB

I’d never forgotten him—a man I’d yet to meet.

Griffin Quinn was my childhood pen pal, the British boy who couldn’t have been more different from me. Over the years, through hundreds of letters, we became best friends, sharing our deepest, darkest secrets and forming a connection I never thought could break.

Until one day it did.

Then, out of the blue, a new letter arrived. A scathing one—one with eight years of pent-up anger. I had no choice but to finally come clean as to why I stopped writing.

Griffin forgave me, and somehow we were able to rekindle our childhood connection. Only now we were adults, and that connection had grown to a spark. Our letters quickly went from fun to flirty to downright dirty, revealing our wildest fantasies. So it only made sense that we would take our relationship to the next level and see each other in person.

Only Griff didn’t want to meet. He asked that I trust him and said it was for the best. But I wanted more—more Griff, in the flesh—so I took a big chance and went looking for him. People have done crazier things for love.

But what I found could change everything.

Review: Hold on to Hope by A.L. Jackson

Title: Hold on to Hope
Author: A.L. Jackson
Publication Date: October 26, 2019

362D3D73-D80B-4D79-9D61-0F7D155811F9

Summary:
Evan Bryant wasn’t your typical hero.
But he was mine.
Broken by the worlds’ standards, he was still the strongest boy I would ever know.
My best friend. The boy I’d given everything to. My heart, my body, and the promise of forever.
The day I’d needed him most, he walked away.
He left me shattered and questioning the love I’d thought we’d shared.

Three years later, I wasn’t prepared for him to return to Gingham Lakes.
It wouldn’t have mattered if he wasn’t the most beautiful man I’d ever seen.
My fingers still would have ached to caress his skin.
My body still would have begged to get lost in his touch.
And my heart . . . it would have always sung his name.
But time changes things. With it, secrets that could ruin everything.
Can we find a way to love again, or have the fears of our past stolen the hope of our forever . . .

Review:
This book was a surprise. This story is raw, beautiful and deep, that grips your heart and doesn’t let it go. It has so much feeling, that I could feel the ache through the words on the page. It’s an emotional powerhouse, perfectly crafted and beautifully written. You’ll want to turn around and read it again the second you’re done.
