Three destinies entwined since the beginning of time…

James Johnston, ruthless, evil, Mystic, is not looking for love. In fact, the only things keeping him going are revenge, obsession, and an ancient Prophecy. He’s back from the Hell his niece sent him to for the second time and is ready to make her immortal life miserable. He also has a daughter to mold and an ancient Prophecy to fulfill. He wants everything to burn and die around him. He feels no love, no loyalty—only rage. Yet, one action sprouts several reactions and before long, he may lose complete control over his own fate. But not to worry, he has a plan…

Alexander Carvanis, Mooyer. Legacy. After his occult upbringing, he only knows one thing: kill anything that has been labeled “Tarnished” by the Mooyer Society, led by his father. He is obsessed with one thought in his mind and it isn’t his own. The only things he’s ever known are what his father told him. He’s followed for years without question and it all comes tumbling down because of his blind obsession to bring down the one he never trusted. Five forbidden journals later and his whole life has changed. Now, the very person he set out to ruin is the only person he can trust not to kill him on sight…

Isobelle Mina, freak, or so she always thought. But there is more to her—so much more than she had ever dreamed possible. Secrets, lies, and betrayal threaten to push her over the edge. A destiny she isn’t sure she wants and two men who are fated to be hers, if only they can see past their hatred…

Will these three overcome a vendetta thousands of years in the making, or will the wounds be too old to heal?

Excerpt

1996

“So what in the hell is phase three exactly?” Sam asked.

“Weapons,” Alexander said.

If it wasn’t for all those years spent learning to contain himself, Alexander would have been jumping up and down at the thought of finally being able to use weapons. It was a dream come true.

“Like hunting rifles?”

“Better.”

“What’s better than hunting rifles? Ain’t nothing better than hunting rifles, boy!”

Alexander rolled his eyes. He swore Sam’s accent got thicker at times just to annoy the hell out of him. He did it on purpose to sound as ignorant as some of the other legacies thought he was, but Alexander knew better. Sam was smarter than Alexander and Alexander was a genius.

“You’re an idiot.”

“Yep and you still love me. Who’s teaching us these weapons you’re so excited about?”

Alexander gave Sam a rare smile.

“My father and your grandfather.”

“Don’t do that shit! I hate when you get that creepy smile on your face. It’s borderline psychotic.”

“And I hate when you sound like Hillbilly Bob, but you do it anyway to annoy me.”

“Truer words ain’t never been spoken.”

“Let’s go, Bob.”

Alexander and Samuel rushed to the shooting range on the hundreds of acres of land owned by The Society. Most of the Legacy families also had houses on the land but there was also cool stuff like the gym and this range. They were early as usual but Alexander’s father and Sam’s grandfather were already there as well.

“Well, someone’s eager for weapons training,” Derrick said.

Sam pointed his finger at Alexander and Alexander slapped it away.

“I just like to be early to things,” Alexander Jr. said.

“Like your father that way,” Derrick said.

“I learn from the best,” Alexander Jr. said.

“Flattery won’t soften me up, son,” Alexander Sr. said.

Sam snickered in the background.

“I can still beat you up,” Alexander Jr. said.

“I’ve been practicing with my brother,” Sam said, raising his chin.

8d0e4-n2bnm

A beautiful college senior and her private writing professor collaborate in more ways than one.

As Sydney’s final semester at Addison College begins, she registers for an independent study with Professor Sparling. Unable to suppress the attraction she feels toward her teacher, Sydney flirts shamelessly. To her surprise, Professor Sparling reciprocates. Sydney loves the magnetic tension between them, but most of all she loves to imagine that perhaps she and her professor are truly meant to be.

Still, Sydney can’t deny that she harbors deep feelings for her ex, Henry. At the center of a torrid love triangle, she must decide whether to forgive Henry’s betrayal, or plunge into an affair with her very sexy, rule-breaking professor.

Two men want her, only one can have her.

Professor Sparling puts his job on the line to be with Sydney.

Henry is determined to keep them apart.

Henry claims he lied to the woman he loves for all the right reasons. He’ll do anything to win back Sydney. But will she give him a second chance?

This racy novel from the When It’s Love new adult romance series continues Sydney Morrison’s passionate coming of age story. Haunted by her mysterious past and torn between her desire for two men, the more Sydney learns about life, the less she understands. How far can she go with her professor before it’s too far? Can Henry convince Sydney that his love for her is stronger than his lies? Will love win over lust?

4-stars
We pick right up after the events of When It’s Love…Henry is struggling with the aftermath of his lies and Sydney is hard pressed to forgive him. He professes his love every chance he gets but she continues to skirt around him and relive his betrayal. She’s started to get closer to the Professor while working on her memoir but realizes that lust and love are two different things. Some hot and heavy moments arises between the two but the outcome is very different from what Sydney had been imaging all those months before.

Henry is digging into Sydney’s parents to help her find the truth but without out knowledge. Sydney herself is also remembering startling truths about her past but she has no one to really talk to about it. We see the characters both trying to pick themselves up and be better versions of themselves.

We are left wondering if the new found closeness Henry and Sydney started to have for each other again will last. Ms. Lauren leaves you on the edge of your seat wanting to know the conclusion of their love story. The perfect balance of mystery and romance. I eagerly awake the next installment.

Blog Tour + Review + Interview – Roman’s Redemption (Roman #2) by Kimber S. Dawn

  Roman’s Redemption
Roman Book II
by
Kimber S. Dawn

I once told you, “Every sin I commit, every life I end, every soul I purchase, I do so to watch in gratifying amusement as it fades out. I’ve taken these lives with whole and complete intentions of watching my sins and transgressions affect and alter the life of others.”
I’m afraid those words no longer hold even a thread of truth.
The man you once knew is now nothing more than a ghost.
The blood staining my hands is no longer a consequence of my amusement.
I have become pure evil. The blood you see is the result of my visceral need to hinder the torment and desolation left in my wife’s wake.
If you are foolish enough to believe all men are worthy of redemption, even those of us born evil, take my hand and allow me to show you what I believe about Redemption.
For this is, after all Roman’s Redemption.

4-stars
I’m not even sure where to beginning. After reading Roman book 1 I was practically left speechless. Then we move on to Roman’s Redemption which is full of twists, turns, lies, and betrayals. We catch up with what happened at the end of Roman and jump right into things. For the most part Roman hasn’t changed a bit in the beginning and it is only his daughter’s love that starts to pull him back from the edge. We learn more about characters such as his housekeeper, Sebastian, and Lizabeth. We get multiple POVs including Heather’s and Roman’s. You read this book and you think to yourself how much more can one person take before there is nothing left to take? Roman’s Redemption will leave you wanting the rest of the story and luckily there is a third installment to finish this trilogy off. Dark and gritty and full of shock and awe moments, if you’re a fan of Kimber than you’ll be a fan of this book.

 

 

 Interview

1. When did you know you had a passion for writing?
When I was in the 8th grade…After Michael from A Woman Gone Mad. Remember, that’s when Lil started writing 😉
2. How do you come up with your books?
Jesus baby Christmas, I have no idea! Hahaha
I guess they come to me. A lot don’t make the cut unfortunately.
3. Which book was the most difficult to write?
Roman: Book 1
He was so unlike any of my other characters and so dead set on how it should be written. No contractions. Very little cursing. His sentences were all clipped and direct. Grrrrrr.
4. Out of all the characters you’ve written so far, who is your favorite?
Stella. Hands down, all day, everyday. For reasons a very few are able understand.
5. What are you working on next?
A FUNNY BOOK!!! Think The Sweetest Thing, Bridesmaid’s, and Sex in the City!!! Super stoked!
6. Where do you see your writing career in the next 5 years?
Hahahaha
At the rate I’m going probably dead or well past it. The politics and cut throat mentality are sometimes too much to consider continuing. Nobody likes to ask themselves, “Why am I even doing this?”
I was born and raised in
Louisiana… and No, I do NOT live in a bayou, I actually see the beaches on the
gulf coast more than I see a bayou, lol. I started writing poems and short
stories very early in my life. You know, for the Michael’s and Leo’s and Nick’s
in my life. I’ve been a book hoarder since I was eleven years old, but then a
couple years ago something wonderful happened! The 50 Shades of Grey craze
brought to life my inner smut whore and I commenced to read anything and
everything smut affiliated. When reading wasn’t enough anymore and I noticed
that so many of the authors of my favorite indie authors and their books
weren’t getting the exposure their work deserved, I turned it into a mission,
starting my own blog, buying their books and reading them one by one. I then
wrote my reviews for my blog and didn’t hold back in writing them (Hell yeah
those motherfuckers are profanity laden). I’ve never done a single thing in my
life halfway. I always go all in. After the success of my Blog, and the
insistence of one of my bestest friends, my sister from another mister, Trina
Taylor of Bad & Dirty Books, I was ready to finally take the plunge and see
if I could write a book that was worth a damn. I’m a Southern girl to my core,
a self-proclaimed smut whore, and I keep hearing that I’m an author, but
honestly… I don’t believe the rumors, lol. I don’t feel like a kickass bitch
spittin’ out lyrics, or stories, like a motherfuckin’ rockstar.
Tattooed across my ribs are the
words I have always lived by: ‘Aut viam inveniam aut faciam tibi.’ Latin for:
If I cannot find a way, I will make my own.
Kimber’s links:

Deserves more than 5 stars!!!!
Wow yet again Kimber has done it again with Roman’s Redemption,
I didn’t think anything could top Roman but I was wrong, truly amazing, Kimber has a gift at telling dark, twisted and gritty reads, I was hooked from the first page.
One thing i am absolutely sure of i hated Seb all through the book, I had different thoughts on Roman, one minute i hated him the next minute I loved him and truly felt for him, one thing that did stay constant with me was i loved Heather, Mac, Mace she was kick ass.
Not for people who don’t read dark books as it isn’t for the faint hearted but i will say you really don’t know what you are missing if you don’t read this book!!!! ~Gemma

Wow wow wow. This was just as good as the first book, another amazing job. Kimber Dawn definitely has away of sucking you in!! I can’t say it enough both of these books are absolutely amazing! Dark as hell but what a great read. I couldn’t put it down. I stayed up all night just to see
what was happening next. If you like dark and I do mean really dark this one was fantastic. ~Nina
Kimber is sick and twisted and I love her mind, but I hate it just as much.
Never in my life have I hated 2 word more. The dislike I have for 6 little letters, THE END, is monumental. Normally, I’d want to ask why, but I realize your sick and twisted mind wouldn’t tell me. In the end, I have to admit, I love the evil that is Roman William Payne even more now than when I first met him. For the life of me I have no idea why.
This book is dark, so if you want or prefer sweet, don’t attempt this. You’ll want to run for the hill and pray to God to clean your mind just for looking this way. But if you enjoy the company of the little devil that’s parked on everyone of our shoulders, if you like the dark side of the tracks then by all means, go meet Roman.
Kimber is like the Rob Zombie of the book world. That’s how I see her. Dark, twisted, and messed the hell up. I’m totally girl crushing on her yet again.
Woman, you rock! ~ Nancy

MORE DETAILS

 

 

LIFE

How would you describe your life overall?

  • I am Jennifer Johnston a true pureblooded half-vampyra shape and half-shifting witch. Unlike any other Mystics, I am disgusted by my own family’s culture on marrying and engaging to sex to one of your family members just to keep the bloodline pure. With this in my mind, I wasn’t completely like all other Mystics, but I still considers myself as one of them as I still know how to torture and kill if I need to. I believe in love. I always wanted to find my Nyhiya fated mate.

 

What is your most memorable moment?

 

What has been the most important event in your life?

 

What do you consider your greatest achievement?

  • I think my greatest achievement would be my own daughter, Krista. I protected her for years. I even tried to show her the life is not all about killing. I helped Krista to be more than what Krista believes she was born.

 

What is your number one regret?

 

When were you the most afraid?

 

What is your greatest fear? Why?

 

What is the most honorable or “good” thing you’ve ever done?

  • The most honorable/good thing that I ever done would be not to be like any other Mystic who love their own kind, I chose another path and that is to dreamed of love and mating.

 

What is the most “evil” thing you have ever done?

  • It was year 1625, at Jamestown, West Virginia where we had our family dinner and the night I murdered my entire family. After that incident, I was known to be the most lunatic Mystic in our kind.

 

Have you ever been in love? If so, describe what happened

 

 

 

 

Do you have a notorious or celebrated ancestor/relative? Does that affect you?

  • Yes, it would be James my uncle. He raped me and it was much worse than the rest of what my family had inflicted on me. Much worse, it does affect me big time. I felt mortified and humiliated. My past still affects and invades my own future. I am rest assured that I would never have a moment of peace.

 

Do you have any secrets? If so, what are they?

  • Yes, it was when my uncle raped me. I kept this secret for a long period of time. I didn’t want other people to look at me pity and disgust after I got raped.

 

 

PERSONALITY

 

What three words would you use to best describe your personality?

  • I would describe myself as a deadly, cunning and vindictive Mystic. A killer and very powerful one. I know how to make decisions on my own, sadly, my daughter is not like that.

 

What three words would others probably use to describe you?

  • Lunatic (because I murdered my whole family from the past)
  • Nuts/Crazy (because no one can kill his/her own family like what I did)
  • Strong woman (despite being rape, I still decided to keep the child and raise her as much as I can)
  • Misunderstood Mystic (people liked to refer to as evil reincarnated)
  • Dual Nature

 

Why are you risking your life to adventure?

 

Do you tend to argue with people or avoid conflict?

 

Are you a listener or a talker?

 

How long does it take for you to trust others?

 

Do you hold grudges?

  • When my uncle raped me, I wanted to die, but then grief turned to rage (violent, uncontrollable anger)

 

Do you tend to take on leadership roles in social situations?

 

Do you like interacting with large groups of people?

 

Are you generally introverted or extroverted?

 

 

PERSONAL EMOTIONS

 

What makes you sad? Happy? Mad? Why?

 

  • Sad: My life was a living hell because my family is a bunch of psychos. I don’t even care about them.

 

I would also feel really bad if one of my mates will be lost/dead.

 

It was when Krista tries to kill my unborn child, it was the worst feeling in the world. To chose one child over the other.

 

  • Mad: I don’t share with my family’s perversions. I would never engage any sex either one of my brothers. My family’s culture just makes me feel disgusted.

 

I was shocked, pissed and a little numb when James took Krista from me.

 

  • Happy: I considered myself being lucky to have met my mates, they are always there for me. I could kill for them.

 

Do you have any biases or prejudices?

 

What do you think of love?

 

Do you believe in self-sacrifice for the greater good?

  • Yes, I would sacrifice my own self and would kill anyone that with mess with my babies. I love both of my children.

Release Day – And So She Waited by Shakuita Johnson

Well it’s ALIVE!!! Release day is here. I couldn’t wait any longer…

8

**Mature audiences only 18+…contains darker elements and no HEAs**

***Severe psychological issues presented but not addressed or acknowledged***

This is not a story about love, but a story about how love can consume you. Heart, body, and soul. A story of loving someone so much that the love you feel harms you.

Have you ever loved someone so much, that before you realized it, they owed half of your soul?

Raven Sinclair’s first love had always been ballet until she met Remy Peters. She fell hard and she fell fast and never looked back. He was everything she always believed she wanted but he had other plans.

Remy Peters didn’t believe in love and he wasn’t looking for it. He just wanted to have a good time in between classes and swim team. He’s been seeing Raven for over a year and a half and he’s not sure how it’s lasted this long. It’s not like he’s made any commitments but when he stumbles on the prettiest girl he’s ever seen, he knows it’s time to let Raven go.

Matthew Masterson has loved Raven since he first saw her in ballet class when they were five. They have been best friends ever since and he’s not content to stay there. He sees Remy for who he really is and wastes no time in telling Raven every chance he gets but is Raven his happy ever after or does fate have other plans?

Love, lies, and obsession…three lives bound by twisted desires for what they can’t have.

Excerpt

Raven

His hands moved up her thighs slowly—too slowly. It was torture. She needed him to touch the place between her legs and stroke her until she was consumed with fire. She wanted him to…

Beep. Beep. Beep.

Raven Sinclair shot up from her bed with a yelp. Holy shit. The dream was back. The same one she had been having for months. She never saw the man’s face, and the dream always ended with his hands sliding up her thighs. Quite frankly, she was sick of the bullshit. She looked over at her alarm clock. It was only four forty-five in the morning. Damnit, she didn’t have to be at her first class until eight. She usually didn’t get up until six, but for some reason her alarm had gone off early. Hopefully she could get another hour of sleep, but she doubted it—stupid fucking dreams. She didn’t know why she was even having them. She had a boyfriend; well, he wasn’t her boyfriend per se, but they spent a lot of time together. Okay, that wasn’t true either; he called when he had the chance. But they loved each other. Well, she loved him, at least. He said he needed time. They had been talking for a year and a half and she was head over heels in love. She would wait forever if she had to. He was worth it. Her friends said she was stupid but screw them. She was in love.

Remy Peters was the one for her. She just knew it in her heart. Ever since she watched him the first day of college in her Freshman Seminar class. He had dirty blond hair, chocolate brown eyes, and the cutest dimples she’d ever seen. He was six feet even and had a lean swimmer’s body. Raven was actually at the Lyrical Muse School Of The Arts on a full scholarship for swimming and ballet, and she would time her workouts to his. She loved to watch him in the water. It was like he was made for it—he exuded confidence, but in a playful, carefree way when he swam. She remembered the first swim meet she had seen him in. He swam like a fish. It was the most amazing thing she had ever seen. He won, of course, and afterward he walked right up to her and asked her out. She was so startled that she squealed and ran out without even looking back. The next day he came and sat right next to her in class. He leaned over and tucked a strand of her hair behind her ear. Then he told her he would pick her up at eight and that she should wear something comfortable. He bared his teeth in a sexy little smile and that was the first time she had ever seen his dimples. She probably fell in love with him right then.

Raven lay in bed, staring at the ceiling. She knew she wasn’t going to get back to sleep, so no point in trying. She would just use this time to daydream about Remy. She really needed to have a talk with him about their relationship. She wanted to know how he felt about her. Anytime she brought it up he would say things like, “You know how I feel,” or “Isn’t just being together enough?” She would just nod her head and let it go, not waiting to start a fight. This time she would insist that he talk to her. When she allowed herself to think about what she really knew about him, there wasn’t much. He didn’t share a lot of personal information with her and what he did share was stuff anyone would know. She hadn’t met any of his friends and they only spent time together at night. He told her to be patient and that he just enjoyed having her to himself. When he said things like that to her she would forget what she wanted to say to him. It was becoming a vicious cycle. One she needed to get a handle on.

Raven didn’t know when or how he had lodged himself so deeply in her heart, but he was there nonetheless. She didn’t think she would ever want to be without him, nor did she know if she could love anyone else as much as she loved him. In any case, she needed to stop thinking about this.

Raven turned off her alarm and got up to start her day. She stripped out of her black lace and matching panties and jumped into the shower. The hot spray soaked her body, her bare skin glistening amid the steam and heat. Just the way she liked it. She let the hot water massage her tense muscles and soothe away her worries and doubts. She indulged herself for a bit, using these moments to escape her own thoughts, then shampooed her hair and soaped up. Once out of the shower, she air-dried because she hated the lint from the towels clinging to her body.

Raven looked at her reflection in the full-length mirror. Staring back at her was a tiny girl standing at four-feet-ten inches. Her greenish blue eyes stood out against her jet-black hair. Her hair was the reason her mother had named her Raven. It came down the middle of her back and was bone straight. She had layers cut into it to give it a bit of life, and considered running streaks through it to make it look more buoyant, lively. She hated her damn hair. A heart shaped face with high cheekbones and evenly spaced eyes made her look like a child instead of almost twenty. She guessed she would be grateful later when she was forty, but for now it was a pain in the ass. Her Native American Heritage was evident in her skin complexion. It was the only thing about her appearance she didn’t hate. After a final glance in the mirror, she walked over to her ridiculously huge closet. It was jam-packed with the latest styles and it still took her entirely too long to look for things to wear on any given occasion. Today was no different.

Raven shot off a text to Remy to say good morning, as usual.

Morning babe. Have a great day! XOXO Miss you…

She continued to rummage through her closet for something decent to wear. Damn, she needed to go shopping. She settled for a black Supernatural shirt and black crop leggings. After dressing, she combed out her hair and placed it in a high bun on the top of her head, then slipped on her red flats and grabbed her pack and purse.

Her watch assured her that she was still ahead of schedule. As she made her way downstairs from her apartment, she checked her phone. He hadn’t texted back yet.

Raven quickly shot off another text.

Hey babe…you awake yet?

She placed her phone in her bag and walked the three blocks to the bus stop. It was quicker than trying to drive her two-door convertible to the university. Besides, it wasn’t too cold out yet, even though it was January. The snow hadn’t even fallen, which was odd for Boston.

Awesome, the bus wasn’t there yet. God, she hated waiting. Ten minutes passed before she climbed aboard and took a seat. She pulled out her phone to check her messages again, still nothing. Why did he always take so long to text back? Sometimes, he didn’t even text back at all.

After a long sigh, Raven decided to dial his number.

Ring. Ring. Ring.

“Yo, you’ve reached Remy. Leave me a message and I might call you back. Holla.”

Beep.

“Remy,” Raven breathed, “I’ve texted you like twice. Where are you? Text me or call me back. Bye.”

Gah! She felt like a fucking idiot. They had hardly hung out together over the weekend, and now she wouldn’t be able to see him at all this week due to their different class schedules. She majored in Dance, and he was in Music, so they didn’t have any classes together anymore. It was just by luck that they had the same freshman seminar and psychology class last school year.

Ding.

Her phone chimed.

“Fucking finally,” she murmured.

She checked the message and was immediately disappointed. It wasn’t Remy. It was her best friend, Matthew Masterson, Matt for short, or Matty if she wanted to annoy him.

Yo son, you almost here? I have shit to discuss about your boy.

Remy…he wanted to talk about things he had heard again. She wasn’t interested in rumors.

Keep the gossip to yourself, Matt. I don’t have time for it.

Just as quickly as she put her phone down, she received a reply.

Not a damn rumor. I saw him last night.

Raven just stared at her phone. She didn’t dare text back. She couldn’t. She was afraid of what he might have seen. She decided she would just not respond.

Don’t fucking ignore me, Raven. We will talk after class this morning. He’s an asshole and you can do so much better.

Shit! She wasn’t on board with this. She didn’t want to talk. She wanted to remain blissfully ignorant. Out of sight, out of mind.

“Damnit Remy, why haven’t you texted me back?”

She would have to find him at school today and figure out what was going on. Preferably before Matt cornered her for a little chat. He was a relentless son of a bitch, and he didn’t like Remy at all. He made sure to tell her every chance he got, repeatedly. Raven wondered why she stayed friends with him at this point. He just wouldn’t let it go. Once the bus hissed to a stop, she hurried down the steps and mentally prepared herself for what she knew was going to be a shit day. Fuck Mondays!
