Meet Greydon and Aimee in this award winning story, Taken By Desire.

A demon from a lost world. A human woman. A fight to the death for her life…and their love.

Greydon has two important missions: find his brothers and rescue his people. He’s finally cornered Threydor–but the demon has a human woman in its clutches. Greydon’s bullet hits home, but too late to keep the demon’s broken, venomous claw from burrowing into his side.

Aimee Jarvis always considered her bookstore a detour to bigger things. Little did she realize her next stop would be the intriguing world of a demon prince.

Aimee’s sweet blood and cool touch save Greydon–and spark a deep, forbidden yearning. Yet he cannot make her his own. While their attraction burns, both deny what their hearts already know. It will take the mystery of an ancient civilization and a shocking discovery for them to admit their desire.

“I will not lie. I believe in the truth, always. I want you. I want to lie you on the bed and make passionate love to you until neither of us can move.”
“Then what’s stopping you?” she whispered.
“Love, did I hear you correctly?” Disbelief was written on his face.
She gazed into his stormy eyes. “I will admit, I’m not the type who sleeps with a man on the first date.” She looked down at his chest. “Hell, not even the second or third.” Her eyes moved back up to meet his. “I can’t say what it is, this connection I feel. I just know I need you.”

Fall Into Romance Blog Hop

the mountain autumn landscape with colorful forest

I love fall, it’s one of my favorite times of the year. Crisp air, rich colors and heavenly scents. There is simply something different and unique about the season. Today I want to share one of my favorite recipes. Fire up the oven and whip up a batch of these delicious meatballs. This recipe courtesy of the Paleo Diet.

Fresh Herb Meatballs

Ingredients:

  • 1lb grounf beef
  • 1lb ground pork
  • 1/2onion, minced
  • 1/2c fresh basil, finely minced
  • 1/2c fresh parsley, finely minced
  • 1c spinach, finely minced
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2c almond meal
  • 1tbsp dried oregano
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Preparation: 1. Preheat your over to 350 degrees.

2. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well with your hands to combine. You can use a food processor to reduce the basil, parsley and spinach to a finer mixture before adding it to the ground meat. Season the mixture to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

3. Make small balls the size of a golf ball and place them an inch apart on a baking sheet, then place them in the over to cook for about 25 minutes. Serves 4.

Since there are only two of us int he house, I toss these in a freezer bag and put them in the freezer, pulling a few out for meals. They go great with pretty much everything!

Excerpt from WWII
romance:
The pilot with wheat-colored hair put his
elbows on the counter and leaned toward her. “I could buy thirty loaves of
bread at home for that much lettuce.”
“But you are not home, soldier. You are
here, in Benevento, and a sticky bun is 100 lire.” She meant to be rude but his
soft brown gaze made her heart race as if she’d just chased Dante across the
field. His smile went to his eyes, adding crinkles to the corners, and turned
her own lips up. “The cost of supplies is very expensive these days, as you
know.”
“So I’ve heard. Give me five,” he said with
a wink. “Maybe I can sweet talk the captain into putting me back into a plane.”
“Save your money, Ken. Your ears obviously
ain’t got any better in the last ten minutes,” he answered, rubber-necking over
the counter. “Get a load of that landing gear.”
Dante growled again but this time showed
sharp, white teeth. “I don’t think he likes you much, Bob.”
“Well I don’t care for him, neither. Give me
two of those, and we’ll get out of your hair.”
The men paid for the rolls and walked
outside. She headed into the kitchen when that quiet, deep voice stopped her.
“I’d like to apologize for my friend. He’s not a bad Joe once you get to know
him.”
“I don’t think I care to,” she said without
turning around.
“It looks like I may be making regular trips
through your town. Do you work here often?” His tone dripped like honey from a
ladle and poured over her; she felt her body turn toward him even as her brain
told her “no.”
“My family owns it. I am here every day.”
“So your father is Guido?” He had resumed
his place at the counter, balanced on his elbows again, inviting her back
without a word.
She found herself leaning on the counter
from the other side. “How do you know my father?”
“The sign says Guido’s Café.”
She laughed. “Yes, it does. So you are no
private eye, eh?”
He whistled then. “You’d make Betty Grable
green with envy when you smile. It makes those blue eyes sparkle like a
fresh-cut diamond. You should do that more often.”
Her eyes lowered, embarrassed at the
compliment and the image of the American pinup girl in a bathing suit. “You
should go catch up with your friends.”
“My name is Ken Lawrence,” he said and held
out his hand.
“Antonia Capriotti,” she replied and took
his hand. A tingle shot down her center and curled her toes. “It is nice to
meet you.”
“You’re blushing. Mmm, beautiful and modest.
That’s a rare find, you know.” He held firmly onto her hand. “And who is this?”
She looked down at the silent collie. He
hadn’t made a noise when this man reached across the counter and touched her.
Odd. “Dante, our protector.”
“You need one, with mugs like Bob I
suppose.” He made a kissing noise in the dog’s direction and slapped the
counter. Dante jumped up, feet on the edge and barked. Ken reached over and
scratched the dog behind his ears. “Good boy, you look like my old Schotzie.”
“You have a dog?”
“I did. Old man hit fourteen just before I
left. Mom sent me his collar when he passed.”
“I’m sorry, they are just like one of the
family, si?”
“Yes they are,” he agreed, giving Dante one
more pat before he tipped his hat. “I hope to see you again soon, Antonia.”
She hugged the collie as the Yank left, a
swagger to his walk. “What do you know that I don’t, hmm? I trust your
instincts better than mine. Perhaps we’ll consider more conversation with this
Americano if he returns.”

Mine To Love, By Lea Bronsen

hotmodelmine

 

Book two of the Hot Model Mine trilogy is finally here! Did you wonder what happened to erotic romance author Andrea and her irresistible cover model, Yushka, after the conference in Cannes?

In book one, The Perfect Shoot, things were complicated for the couple. He was much younger than her—practically the same age as her twins—and she’d spent half her life without a man. After much reflection, she ended up giving into her desire and taking Mr. Hot Model for lover. But what then after they traveled back to their separate lives?

Wait no more: They’re here to tell the continuation of their sizzling love story 🙂
 

minetolove2

 

BLURB:

The writing conference in sunny Cannes was fantastical, a dream. Back at home, reality catches up with author Andrea Johnson and the sexy cover model of her book, Yushka. With tough working schedules, challenging family relations, and seductive temptation from all sides, the couple’s explosive romance is put to the test.

Will their love be strong enough to have a future?
 

BOOK TRAILER:

 

EXCERPT:

While Yushka gets his duffel bag in the back seat, I lean against the side of the Corolla and stretch my arms on top of its roof. “You got everything?”

“Yeah.” He lifts the bag over his shoulder and tilts his head in direction of the front door. “We good to go?”

My pulse beats a little faster at the thought of him dropping that bag on my bedroom floor and lifting me in his arms instead. I’m so excited to be with him, I simmer inside, aching to touch and hold him. I want to have all of him at once, right now.

A spark of amusement plays in his gorgeous Asian eyes as he waits for me to make a move. “What’s on your mind, Princess?”

Holding his gaze, I smile, my fingers tapping a beat on the car hood to buy some time because I don’t know what to reply. I have a feeling whatever might come out of my mouth now, like I can’t wait to rip those clothes off you or I’m going to make you scream, will sound too cheesy. Why do we need to put our attraction into words, anyway? Once we’re home, there’ll be no reason to talk that much. We’ll do the talking with our more-than-capable hands and … um … mouths.

I tap a quick rap before stepping back from the car. “Come on.”

“Okay.” Widening his smile, he follows me to the front entrance.

I unlock and push the wood door open. “I hope your bag’s not too heavy. The elevator doesn’t work.”

“When are they gonna fix it?”

“Huh, good question.” I step forward, but when in the doorway, I spin to hold the door open for him. “I have no idea.”

“No?” With a raised brow, he passes me.

Just then, I move toward him, chest-to-chest, blocking him and his thick bag between myself and the doorframe.

“Oh!” He laughs.

As the door pushes into my back, squeezing me tighter against him, I put my hands on his waist. First above his clothes––the thick leather jacket and his shirt––then sneaking underneath both of them, my fingers splaying on his warm skin and stroking him.

Completely stuck, he tilts his head and stares into my eyes, his own sparkling with playfulness. “What are you up to?”

“You have a problem?” I move my hands out from beneath his shirt and go downward to palm his tight ass cheeks, pulling his crotch to me. My lower stomach and increasingly heating inner thighs seek to meet his. I want to be so near him he’ll feel my lust, and I want his lust to grow, too. I need us to join and be a match, a melting pot of desire, irresistible and untamable.

“I have to bribe you?” he asks, voice lower, and leans down to kiss me.

How did he guess? At the warm touch of his parted lips, delight rushes through me as if I’d had a shot of alcohol.

He retreats his face a few inches, enough to have a view of what he just kissed. “This good enough for you?” His voice comes out husky, a bit short of breath. With his free hand, he strokes and kneads my butt.

“One more,” I mouth with the next exhale of air. Though the door bores painfully into my back, I don’t want to move, loving the feel of being so close to Yushka, so intimate. It’s amazing how instantaneous and intense our connection is. Just wait till we get our clothes off.

Again, his warm lips land on mine, and we kiss greedily, nose-to-nose, wet tongues playing with each other. My inner pussy muscles clench, remembering too well what it’s like to have his cock inside. I breathe faster. A growing hardness in his crotch presses against me, provoking more tightening. Oh, God. Hot wetness glides down my pussy, wetting my panties. So ready, so soon… I mew into his mouth, and he rewards me with a guttural response, our mouths practically eating each other.

But this isn’t the right place. We need to move and play this torturous game and its grand finale somewhere else.

Releasing his lips, I gasp from our separation, but still manage to pull away.

“Fuck, you’re hot.” He inhales deeply and looks up, feverish eyes widening and trying to refocus.

As I step backward, forcing the door to open again, cold evening air sneaks between our heated bodies. “Let’s go,” I say with a croak, my chest heaving.

He gives a small nod and steps inside the low-lit lobby.

Interview with model, Craig Gierish/Fall Into Darkness Tour #2

I had the pleasure of meeting a wonderful photographer by the name of Eric David Battershell at RT Booklovers in Dallas this past May. After chatting with him I decided to try my first custom shoot for the cover of Fall Into Darkness. I saw Craig and instantly knew he was it. He fit the image I had of Eli perfectly. I have to say; I’ve grown very fond of him. Let’s face it, not only is he sexy, but smart, and determined. I hope you enjoy getting to know him as much as I have and I certainly hope you enjoy Eli and Ashley’s story.
~Valerie Twombly

c1The ALPHA movement is upon us.
Gone are the days of excuses and reasons not to progress.
We ALWAYS give our ALL,
Striving to be our best in ALL aspects of life.
We motivate, encourage and empower others,
RISING to greatness hand in hand.
Join us, sisters and brothers.
Together we can accomplish anything!
TOGETHER WE WILL RISE!

What inspired you to start the site?

I always wondered why there was never a place where adults and children could be educated in a fun, imaginative way TOGETHER. I took it upon myself to bridge this gap! It saddens me to know the amount of misinformation out there.

Supplement companies and the food industry will use clever marketing to sell their products. They do not care for your health. Like any big corporation, they are after only one thing…your money.

Children are brought up to eat what the generations before them ate. As a result, we see a DRASTIC increase in the obesity rate, health risks, and many other problems associated with diet in children and adults alike.

The Alpha Alliance was created to teach not only the benefits of eating healthy and living an active lifestyle, but we also teach how to better yourself in mind, body, and spirit/the belief in yourself to achieve ANYTHING you set out to do. The Alliance will have recipes for adults and children alike. The goal is to make it fun and help set our Lil’ Alphas down a path of success that they can sustain for the rest of their lives, while simultaneously helping to educate the teens and adults on all of the misinformation they have been fed all their lives. Most health problems ARE reversible by making simple life changes. I hope that you will join me and become an ALPHA ALLIANCE RECRUIT once my Web site is ready for launch!

 

Do you do any traveling? What has been your favorite place to visit?

I plan to go out of the country hopefully next year. My favorite place to visit would have to be my family’s cabin in Colorado. While there, I enjoy quading, hiking, and lots of family time…sometimes too much 😛

Do you like to read? If so, what?

I read anything that will help me grow as a person and better educate me. If I am knowledgeable, I am more equipped to lead my Alpha Recruits down the correct path. I would never make up something for the sake of sounding like a know-it-all. All the nutrition plans, workouts, and things I coach/teach I personally have done myself.


How can people help you to achieve your goals?

You can “Like and Share with all of your friends, family, and loved ones” my Alpha Alliance Facebook page. This is where you will get all the content and updates until the Web site is ready to be launched.

Big things are coming, and I hope you will be a part of my journey!

Fall Into Darkness
By Valerie Twombly
Release Date: November 9, 2015
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Eli lives by his own rules and bows to no one, even when summoned before the Tribunal Seven. They deem the hunter has lost his humanity and sentence the angel to earth with one mission: find some compassion or be condemned to Hell.

Ashley considers herself a freak. With one glance into a person’s eyes, she foresees their death. When an attack brings a handsome stranger to her rescue, she can’t help but be drawn to his steel-blue gaze.

Fate will bring them together but desire could bond them for eternity.

Excerpt

Ashley wandered through Eli’s bedroom, noting how bare it was. Except for a queen four-poster bed, a dresser, and a fireplace, there was nothing else here. She wondered how lonely he must have been to never make a real home in one place. Eva had told her this small cabin in the north woods was always his favorite and that was why she’d asked to be brought here.

After stoking a fire, she donned the short red nightie that hardly covered her breasts and left her long legs exposed. There was no way he could resist, not if he were half as needful as she, and something told her he would be more so. She hoped he’d be so lust ridden he’d complete the bond. Guilt filled her for what she was about to do, but she’d do anything to save him. She’d worry about the aftermath later.

The double-winged tattoo on the back of her hip burned, and she’d learned it meant Eli was close by. Was he watching from a distance? She stepped into the soft light of the fire, knowing it cast a sensual glow across her skin. Yeah, she was pulling out all the stops. A cool breeze whispered across her skin causing her nipples to tighten.

He was here.

She turned, and when her gaze fell upon him standing in the shadows she gasped. His naked chest glistened in the firelight that reflected across the room. A thick rope of muscles coiled just under his skin, and her fingertips itched to touch him. Dark jeans, settled so low on his hips, she could see the dusting of hair that led to his sweet spot. However, it was the massive black wings that stretched out and brushed the ground that really drew her attention. Her fallen angel was dark and sinister, yet every fiber of her being said he’d never harm her. He’d come to her and she was determined to finish what they’d started.

She was determined to save his soul.

“Eli.” She took a step closer.

He flashed a set of fangs. “I’ve never been weak in my entire life, but with you… You are my weakness. Look at me Ashley, I’m one step away from claiming you. Being mated to me will be a fate worse than death.”

Another step. Careful not to scare him off, she stopped short of being able to reach out and touch him. Opening her mind, he could feel everything she did should he choose to. “You’re wrong. Walking away from you would be a worse fate. You’ve touched something deep inside me. Fate brought us together because we need each other.” She took the last step and placed her hands on his chest. He stiffened beneath her touch.

“I need you and I don’t mean just the physical. I mean emotionally as well. You have my heart as well as my body. All of me, it belongs to you.”

His adam’s apple rose and fell then he gripped her waist and tugged her close. He bent his head and slanted his mouth over hers. Sucking her bottom lip through his teeth, he gave a nibble; his fangs gently scraped her sensitive flesh before his tongue slipped inside. She dragged her nails down his chest, and he deepened the kiss. They both became lost in the moment.

Eli broke the kiss and licked his way down her neck and across her clavicle. Ashley tipped her head back on a moan.

“You have on too many clothes,” he whispered.

“Then I suggest you get rid of them,” she urged.

He wasted no time. Gripping the top of her nightie, he ripped it wide open then shoved the satin material off her shoulders and let it drop to the floor. She stood before him, her body bathed in only the firelight.

“You should be laid out on a bed of silk and worshipped. Instead, I tear your clothes from your body.” He unbuttoned his jeans and shoved them to the floor, stepping free from them before he kicked them aside. She started to reach for his erection, but he spun her and pinned her back against the wall. “I can’t stop myself. I’m so damn cold, and I need to feel your warmth wrapped around me.”

“Take what you need.”

After chatting with him I decided to try my first custom shoot for the cover of Fall Into Darkness. I saw Craig and instantly knew he was it. He fit the image I had of Eli perfectly. I have to say; I’ve grown very fond of him. Let’s face it, not only is he sexy, but smart, and determined. I hope you enjoy getting to know him as much as I have and I certainly hope you enjoy Eli and Ashley’s story.

c1The ALPHA movement is upon us.
Gone are the days of excuses and reasons not to progress.
We ALWAYS give our ALL,
Striving to be our best in ALL aspects of life.
We motivate, encourage and empower others,
RISING to greatness hand in hand.
Join us, sisters and brothers.
Together we can accomplish anything!
TOGETHER WE WILL RISE!

What inspired you to start the site?

I always wondered why there was never a place where adults and children could be educated in a fun, imaginative way TOGETHER. I took it upon myself to bridge this gap! It saddens me to know the amount of misinformation out there.

Supplement companies and the food industry will use clever marketing to sell their products. They do not care for your health. Like any big corporation, they are after only one thing…your money.

Children are brought up to eat what the generations before them ate. As a result, we see a DRASTIC increase in the obesity rate, health risks, and many other problems associated with diet in children and adults alike.

The Alpha Alliance was created to teach not only the benefits of eating healthy and living an active lifestyle, but we also teach how to better yourself in mind, body, and spirit/the belief in yourself to achieve ANYTHING you set out to do. The Alliance will have recipes for adults and children alike. The goal is to make it fun and help set our Lil’ Alphas down a path of success that they can sustain for the rest of their lives, while simultaneously helping to educate the teens and adults on all of the misinformation they have been fed all their lives. Most health problems ARE reversible by making simple life changes. I hope that you will join me and become an ALPHA ALLIANCE RECRUIT once my Web site is ready for launch!

What are some of your personal favorites from the recipes?
I love all of my recipes! I have a major sweet tooth. At the same time, I wanted to create recipes that are healthy. As a result, I created recipes that not only taste AMAZING but are healthy! No more feeling like a bowling ball is sitting in your stomach after eating pancakes. Try out my personal favorite blueberry recipes.

**Note- This is my current site. The Alpha Alliance will be a separate part of the Web site!!!

There are 5 schools in Italy who have begun utilizing the Alpha Alliance in their curriculum. They loved the idea of training all aspects of body, mind, and spirit and I have a meeting with even more schools! Here is an “attendance sheet” and translated in English as well. Instead of the children saying I am here they all say I’m Alpha, HOW COOL!!!!

Fall Into Darkness
By Valerie Twombly
Release Date: November 9, 2015
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Eli lives by his own rules and bows to no one, even when summoned before the Tribunal Seven. They deem the hunter has lost his humanity and sentence the angel to earth with one mission: find some compassion or be condemned to Hell.

Ashley considers herself a freak. With one glance into a person’s eyes, she foresees their death. When an attack brings a handsome stranger to her rescue, she can’t help but be drawn to his steel-blue gaze.

Fate will bring them together but desire could bond them for eternity.

Excerpt

Ashley wandered through Eli’s bedroom, noting how bare it was. Except for a queen four-poster bed, a dresser, and a fireplace, there was nothing else here. She wondered how lonely he must have been to never make a real home in one place. Eva had told her this small cabin in the north woods was always his favorite and that was why she’d asked to be brought here.

After stoking a fire, she donned the short red nightie that hardly covered her breasts and left her long legs exposed. There was no way he could resist, not if he were half as needful as she, and something told her he would be more so. She hoped he’d be so lust ridden he’d complete the bond. Guilt filled her for what she was about to do, but she’d do anything to save him. She’d worry about the aftermath later.

The double-winged tattoo on the back of her hip burned, and she’d learned it meant Eli was close by. Was he watching from a distance? She stepped into the soft light of the fire, knowing it cast a sensual glow across her skin. Yeah, she was pulling out all the stops. A cool breeze whispered across her skin causing her nipples to tighten.

He was here.

She turned, and when her gaze fell upon him standing in the shadows she gasped. His naked chest glistened in the firelight that reflected across the room. A thick rope of muscles coiled just under his skin, and her fingertips itched to touch him. Dark jeans, settled so low on his hips, she could see the dusting of hair that led to his sweet spot. However, it was the massive black wings that stretched out and brushed the ground that really drew her attention. Her fallen angel was dark and sinister, yet every fiber of her being said he’d never harm her. He’d come to her and she was determined to finish what they’d started.

She was determined to save his soul.

“Eli.” She took a step closer.

He flashed a set of fangs. “I’ve never been weak in my entire life, but with you… You are my weakness. Look at me Ashley, I’m one step away from claiming you. Being mated to me will be a fate worse than death.”

Another step. Careful not to scare him off, she stopped short of being able to reach out and touch him. Opening her mind, he could feel everything she did should he choose to. “You’re wrong. Walking away from you would be a worse fate. You’ve touched something deep inside me. Fate brought us together because we need each other.” She took the last step and placed her hands on his chest. He stiffened beneath her touch.

“I need you and I don’t mean just the physical. I mean emotionally as well. You have my heart as well as my body. All of me, it belongs to you.”

His adam’s apple rose and fell then he gripped her waist and tugged her close. He bent his head and slanted his mouth over hers. Sucking her bottom lip through his teeth, he gave a nibble; his fangs gently scraped her sensitive flesh before his tongue slipped inside. She dragged her nails down his chest, and he deepened the kiss. They both became lost in the moment.

Eli broke the kiss and licked his way down her neck and across her clavicle. Ashley tipped her head back on a moan.

“You have on too many clothes,” he whispered.

“Then I suggest you get rid of them,” she urged.

He wasted no time. Gripping the top of her nightie, he ripped it wide open then shoved the satin material off her shoulders and let it drop to the floor. She stood before him, her body bathed in only the firelight.

“You should be laid out on a bed of silk and worshipped. Instead, I tear your clothes from your body.” He unbuttoned his jeans and shoved them to the floor, stepping free from them before he kicked them aside. She started to reach for his erection, but he spun her and pinned her back against the wall. “I can’t stop myself. I’m so damn cold, and I need to feel your warmth wrapped around me.”

“Take what you need.”

If you want to live, you must let go of the past…

Twenty-eight-year-old psychologist, Alisha Dimarchi, is abducted by an obsessed client and imprisoned in his Pakistani compound for over two years.

Excerpt

March Twenty-third, Philadelphia

The slow drip of a leaky faucet disrupted Ally’s otherwise quiet slumber.

“Ally.” The distant sound of David’s voice soothed her, enveloping her in a warm blanket of safety.

A smile tugged at her lips. Soon he’d crawl into bed and wrap his limbs around hers, cocooning her with his love.

Instead of the heat she anticipated, something coarse scraped against her cheek. When she tried to swat it away, her arms refused to comply.

“Baby, wake up.” Her husband’s echoed tone became louder, rougher. “You need to wake up.”

The urgency in it made her eyelids flutter, pulling her further away from the dark claws of sleep.

Like a silent movie, foggy images of a dimly lit parking lot invaded her dreams. A woman, tall and lean, walked the deserted space alone. With each clip of her heels against the paved road, the haze cleared a little more. Ally’s heart raced when the woman’s features came into view. Long, curly, black hair, dark brown eyes, tanned complexion.

It was her.

Two sets of hands emerged from the shadows, dragging her into the woods. The taller of the two men covered the woman’s mouth, muting her screams as she wrestled to break free, until the other one slammed a brick into the base of her skull, plunging her into darkness.

This must be a dream.

Rays of light pierced the darkness as Ally’s heavy eyelids fought to open. When she shifted, instead of soft sateen sheets, her cheek scraped against a cold, hard surface.

“Alisha? Can you hear me?” This voice wasn’t David’s. It sounded thick, heavy with an accent and oddly familiar. So familiar, she shivered.

Reviews for The Second Wife:

Kishan Paul’s writing shines in this beautifully written psychological thriller filled with heart-gripping emotion as the heroine unearths an inner strength she didn’t know she possessed.

– Cait Jarrod, Bestselling Author

“The Second Wife is a poignant story of love, domestic violence, and mental strength. It grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go until you’ve finished the last page. No wait, it doesn’t let go at all… I had the pleasure of betareading it, and the wide range of emotions it stirred in me are still right under the surface.”

– Lea Bronsen award winning author of The Perfect Shoot

“This is a gripping story, brilliantly woven from start to finish. I’ll never forget Ally. She’s as real to me as anyone else because her story isn’t some forgettable fictional work. No way you are walking away from this one the same way. I actually took a break between this novel and my next one. I wasn’t ready to begin another journey just yet. Amazing work, Kishan Paul.”

Kristen Shanchez, reader
