wip-cover-sm.jpg




I never thought my first kiss would be on my wedding day.


But here I stand, clutching a bouquet of pale pink roses behind the doors of a Las Vegas chapel, and at the end of the aisle is the
absolute last man I imagined would be waiting for me.


Thomas Bane.

Bestselling author. Notorious bad boy. Savagely handsome, dark as sin, chiseled as stone. And somehow, my soon-to-be husband.


Marry him, and I’ll land my dream job. Save him, and I’ll walk away with everything I’ve ever wanted. All I have to do is remember
it’s all for show. None of it is real, no matter how real it feels.


But first, I have to survive the kiss.

And with lips like his, my heart doesn’t stand a chance.

Excerpt:




The hall bathroom door opened, consequently stopping the earth’s orbit and flinging me into space for lack of gravity.


Thomas Bane stepped out of the doorway in slow motion, propelled by a cloud of steam that licked at his glistening body like it
wanted to taste him. His hair was black, wet, curling and dripping in rivulets down the planes and valleys of his expansive chest
and abs and narrow hips. He had that thing, the trough of muscle bracketing his hips that caught sluicing water and carried it in
an angle that would eventually reach that unknown terrain beneath his towel. I saw the ghost of that terrain, the long, cylindrical
bulge that was substantial enough to clearly state its presence, even through the thick towel.


He smirked, dragging his hand through his wet hair. I salivated, watching droplets of water roll down his forearm and collect on the
tip of his erotic elbow.


“You’re up,” he said.


I blinked, not knowing when I’d set my coffee down or how many minutes—hours? years?—had passed in the time I spent ogling his
body.


He sauntered into the room like he wasn’t basically naked. I tried unsuccessfully not to stare at his knees, the place where his ropy thigh
connected, the angular muscles of his calves, the curve of his ankle, the broad pad of his foot.


He was perfectly proportioned. Michelangelo would have carved him twenty feet tall, and women would have worshipped at his perfect feet.


Gus bounced when he saw Tommy, his toys forgotten. And when Gus took off running, Tommy stopped, eyes widening and hands splayed in
front of him.


“Gus, no,” he commanded.


To no one’s surprise, Gus did not listen. He barked once, snagged the hem of Tommy’s towel, and whipped it off him in a single tug that exposed
every inch of skin on Thomas Bane’s ridiculous body.


Thank God my coffee was already on the counter. I’d have gotten third-degree burns.


For a split second, Tommy was frozen there in all his natural glory, poised to run after his dog, his face drawn and eyes locked on the sweet, disobedient
dog. He wasn’t paying any attention to me.


I, however, gave him my full and undivided consideration.


His thighs were a mass of muscle so hard and defined, the tops were planes that came to a notch at his knee and a point where it met his hip. My eyes
caught that trough that had before disappeared and followed it where it pointed—straight to the thatch of dark hair and the member nestled there.


The very thick, very long, mostly limp member.


If I stared at it a second longer, I was going to faint—my vision was already dim, my pulse pumping so hard, I could feel it in my neck, at the back of which
a cold sweat had broken.


But he shifted to run after Gus, who was galloping away, trailing the towel behind him.


“Dammit, Gus! Gimme that!”


Then it was the back of him I saw, his hair, the streaming water rolling down all the curves of his shoulders, his back, the valley of his spine, and down to
the most perfect ass I’d ever seen in real life.


Well, the only ass I’d ever seen in real life that wasn’t my own, and even that I couldn’t get a good look at without a mirror.


Seriously, that ass. That perfectly sculpted ass, round and tight and curved in the sides, shifting from one side to the other as he ran after the damn dog.
My gaze caught a tattoo on one ass cheek, and I squinted at it, trying to make it out.


Tommy bent to snag the end of the towel—I caught sight of his sack and almost dissolved through the floor in an acidic puddle of embarrassment—but
when he pulled, Gus spun around, ass in the air and tail wagging as he growled, pulling back.


A string of obscenities left Tommy’s mouth, but I was still gaping and staring at his ass. I realized that I was laughing. It sounded like someone else in a
different room.


I wondered absently if this was how it felt to have a stroke.







Final Score - 5 Stars!

How has it happened that I've started with the third book in this series?! GAH! What an introduction though. I've definitely got to get caught up with the first two books now for sure.

This book has the makings of rom-com masterpiece: a fake marriage, a never been kissed virgin, a bad boy with a bad rep, an image make over, and sizzling chemistry. Mixed together and you have a gem of a story that only Staci Hart can bake and serve up on a silver platter. I ate up word, every emotion and just wanted more! 

This book has so many amazing layers and the characters just add to the dynamic of the story - you don't want to miss out on this one. Work in Progress is only the book to read but it must be owned.




About the Author


Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress.
Can't forget that. She's also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife, though she's certainly
not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey.


From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver.
They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

Review: The Girl He Used to Know

The Girl He Used to Know The Girl He Used to Know by Tracey Garvis Graves
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Final Score - 5+ I AM GUTTED STARS!

From the first moment I read the blurb to this story, I got an immediate sense of what Annika's eccentricities were. Having some knowledge of this, I was ready and open to read this book - not really knowing where the writer was going to take me with this story.

Ms. Graves was able to put me in Annika's shoes - so to speak - and as I read the story and got to see the world from her perspective. She made me feel so much - her pain, her isolation, her fear, her pure heart that just made me want to protect to her from the harsh and often ugly realities of this world. We don't celebrate people we know to be different - we ostracize them, make them feel their inferiority and cast them aside.

The incident that Annika suffered in Seventh grade - I know what she went thru as I too was bullied. My god, it was liked reliving the worst time in my life again. I cried my eyes raw reading that. Hours later, that and other incidents that happened in the book are on playback in my mind.
Needless to say, this book is going to stay with me for a long time to come and I welcome that.

I could NOT put this book down - and believe me when I say I wanted to go slow as to savor it. I may just re-read this again as this story is still with me and once again is causing my eyes to water and my heart to burst. I loved it that much. There's so much more I want to say, and perhaps I will later when I re-read this story again at a slower pace.

This is my first book by this author, but this will definitely not be my last.  Ms. Graves has found a new fan in me.

About THE MISTER:


London, 2019.  Life has been easy for Maxim Trevelyan. With his good looks, aristocratic connections, and money, he’s never
had to work and he’s rarely slept alone. But all that changes when tragedy strikes and Maxim inherits his family’s noble title, wealth,
and estates, and all the responsibility that entails. It’s a role he’s not prepared for and one that he struggles to face.

But his biggest challenge is fighting his desire for an unexpected, enigmatic young woman who’s recently arrived in England,
possessing little more than a dangerous and troublesome past.  Reticent, beautiful, and musically gifted, she’s an alluring mystery,
and Maxim’s longing for her deepens into a passion that he’s never experienced and dares not name. Just who is Alessia Demachi?
And can Maxim protect her from the malevolence that threatens her? And what will she do when she learns that he’s been hiding
secrets of his own?

From the heart of London through wild, rural Cornwall to the bleak, forbidding beauty of the Balkans, The Mister is a roller-coaster

Review: Enzo

Enzo Enzo by K. Webster
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Final Score - 4.5 Stars!

Would you trust an adult after every other has let you down your entire life?  Especially when this one has the power to control your life?

Jenna is unhappy, bouncing from bad home to worse home.   Jenna is a foster child, but she won't let it define her.  Forming her own family with another abandoned child, she decides that when she ages out, she's not leaving alone.

Enter Enzo, he's her new caseworker and he goes above and beyond for his charges - especially Jenna. He knows he shouldn't feel the way he does about her, but she's special. He sees in her what he himself was at one time - a lonely foster child looking for a family of their own.

This story was chalk full of romance, but had a healthy dose of compassion as well.  Jenna and Enzo's journey at times was rough, and they had a lot of hardships to work through, but the author definitely gave them their well deserved happy ending.

IndieSage PR Hosted Blog Tour for VAS (The V Games #3) by Ker Dukey & K Webster !

Vas

by K. Webster & Ker Dukey
Publication Date: January 7, 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Dark, Mafia, Romance


Read for FREE in KindleUnlimited: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU

The Volkov name is one I longed for.
Their household is one I grew up in, but not as an equal—as a maid’s son.
This didn’t stop me from becoming a man to be reckoned with.
But even with my rightful name finally given to me, I still feel adrift.
Until her.

Everything I did was for acceptance.
Everything I lost brought me to my family.
To this life.
To her.

I fought for my status.
I fought for my sisters.
And I will fight to the death for my angel.

She has shown me there is light in our pitch-black world.
That the stars can’t shine without the darkness of night.
She is the stars, and I am the sky in which she shines.

There is evil lurking in the shadows we create.
The corruption and depravities of the First Families have become toxic and are infecting us all from within.
Games have been played, and now, they must end.

I am Vas.
Vocal. Voracious. Vindictive. Volkov.
A devil in love with an angel, and together, we’re going to rule Hell on Earth.



Ven

by K. Webster & Ker Dukey
Publication Date: June 29, 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Dark, Mafia, Romance


Read for FREE in KindleUnlimited: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU


The Vetrov name comes with expectation.
My role in this world is simple: do as Father asks and live my life how he planned it.

My future is already written: run the empire.
Old Values. Old Rule. Old Money.
Until her.

Everything I do lacks purpose.
Everything I do is empty.
Women. Money. Power. It meant nothing.
Until her.

When the Volkov rose showed up at my home a disgraced package, hand-delivered by a Vasiliev prince, I began paving my own path.
I vowed to make her bloom once more.

She consumed me.
Her. Her. Her.

But you can’t love a rose and expect not to be damaged by her thorns.
She cut me too deep.
And I bled out.
My soul fled.
All that’s left is a cold, calculating monster.

I am Veniamin.
Volcanic. Victorious. Valiant. Vetrov.
When you enter my world to play games, prepare to lose.
In the end, I always find the thorn in my side, and I pluck it right out.



Vlad

by K. Webster & Ker Dukey
Publication Date: February 24, 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Dark, Mafia, Romance


Read for FREE in KindleUnlimited: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU


Everything I do has purpose. Everything I do has reason. Until her.

The Vasiliev name is a powerful one.
We rule with an iron fist and we do it well.
Being the eldest, I am Father’s best hope at keeping us at the top of the food chain.

Everything I do has purpose.
Everything I do has reason.
Until her.

I play my games thinking several moves ahead.
Power. Power. Power.
Until her.

The next move requires I marry and soon.
This will strengthen us and secure our position.
But I am not to marry her.

I am to wed the eldest Volkov.
Problem is, her younger sister is the one who awakens my dead heart.
It is her I want in my bed and by my side forever.
Her. Her. Her.

In this game, though, it’s not about what I want.
But maybe it can be about what she wants.

I am Vlad.
Vile. Vicious. Villainous. Vasiliev.
And I will win eventually.







Final Score - 5 Stars!

I thought I was in love with Vlad, then Ven came along. Now, Vas has come and he's kicked them both firmly to the curb. This one mo'fo you 1) don't want to mess with and 2) should NEVER under estimate! 

I have been with this series from the beginning and now at it's conclusion, I don't want it to end. 
I still have questions! What exactly happened to Vika? Or Alyona after the Games? What about the women in this tale ... I need more info about then. Can we at least a novella in the near future - *hint, Hint my author Ladies. 

I cannot say enough good things about this book except to say if you don't stop and read it for yourself, you are seriously missing out. For real!

About Ker Dukey


My books all tend to be darker romance, edge of you seat, angst filled reads. My advice to my readers when starting one of my titles…prepare for the unexpected.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters growing up.
My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light; some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.
