Synopsis:

Evi Devil.

Yes, that’s really my name.

The irony is not lost on me.

I was created from two evil souls and have the name to prove it.

Devil worshipers, perverts, murderer. Is all terms used to describe the parents I refuse to remember. My mind won’t allow me to.

And why would I want to?

One born of dirty blood running through her veins can never truly be clean from its murky hue.

No matter what they try to tell me happened in my past, my mind denies me access, therefore how can I know it’s true?

How can I believe that’s what I’m born from?

Glimpses of my past haunt me, the screams of terror echo in the silent darkness of my memories, trying to remind me that my Mother went from room to room butchering our family.

I’ve learned from scars that I suffered abuse and that my Father and siblings weren’t my Mother’s only victims.

Hearing what they tell me.

Reading the words printed in the papers. None of it can prepare me for what’s to come.

My biggest lesson is learning that some memories we suppress for a reason.

About Ker

unnamed-2.jpg

International Bestselling Author Ker Dukey

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that I tell my own.

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.

You can find me on Facebook where I love interacting with my readers.

Liz’s Review~Damnable Grace (Hades Hangmen, #5) ~ by Tillie Cole

800px-5_stars-700x144

“In the comfort of his safe embrace, I let sleep pull me under. My body protected in his arms…and perhaps my soul too.”

description

Damnable Grace is the fifth book in the Hades Hangmen Series. The Hades are an MC and band of brothers that are rough, raw, and loyal to each other and their women. Each Hangmen is unique, and their journey to love is paved with strife and affliction. The perseverance of the club continues to drive these men to protect the innocent and persecute the guilty.

description

“I think we were meant to find each other, AK. I think we were meant to find each other, to leave hell together.”

AK is a tortured man. Sergeant-At-Arms of the Hades Hangmen and leader of the infamous ‘Psycho Trio’, and a former sniper, he is suffering from painful flashbacks from his past. He has many regrets, and if it weren’t for the love and friendship of his brothers, he would be completely lost. One regret is the day he left a beautiful woman named Phebe chained to a tree. Now he is ready to find her and bring her back!

description

“I was a fucking man possessed as I thrust into her.”

Phebe is a broken woman who has been tortured and abused her entire life. Another victim to the cruelty of The Order, Phebe has only known a life full of servicing men. Now addicted to drugs and completely broken, AK is like a dark angel who rescues her from the clutches of evil. Phebe is strong, and although she is battling addiction and the painful memories of her past, AK offers a glimpse of goodness like she has never felt before. Both AK and Phebe have a mountain of pain to overcome, and yet together they make sense. AK is patient with Phebe as she heals and he is ruthless about protecting her. Phebe offers AK peace that he has never experienced before. Together AK and Phebe find bliss. As they grow together emotionally, the physical connection is intense as Phebe experiences physical touch rooted in love for the first time. Together AK and Phebe make every moment of Damnable Grace raw and utterly beautiful.

description

“His lips worshipped me. I never thought I would ever understand the meaning of a kiss. How it could momentarily stop your heart from beating or how such an innocent touch could make you feel so incredibly cherished.”

Told in mostly dual POV, Damnable Grace is another stunning addition to the Hades Hangmen Series. I have been a fan of this series from the beginning, and every single Hangmen offers a unique glimpse into the life and relationships of the club. AK and Phebe are perfectly matched and with their broken pasts, they find redemption together. Once again Tillie Cole has created an intense world where the innocent woman of The Order are brutalized, and the men of the Hades Hangmen will kill to make the world a better place. The relationships between the characters are complex and deeply rooted in love. The action is intense and drives the story from the first page to the very last page turn. With every sound of the bike rumble, every passionate kiss, every moment of bliss, the Hades Men and Women create a world in which I never want to leave.

description

Overall, I cannot express my love enough for Damnable Grace and this entire series. Although this book can be read as a stand-alone, I highly recommend reading this entire series in order to grasp the beauty of this world from the beginning. Be forewarned, once you begin this series you will not want to stop. With each book in this series, Tillie Cole paints another layer of splendor to this masterpiece of work. These characters will stay beautifully embedded in my heart and mind forever.

Liz’s Review~Provocative (White Lies Duet, #1) ~ by Lisa Renee Jones

800px-5_stars-700x144

“There are those moments in life that are provocative in their very existences, that embed in our minds forever, and sometimes our very souls.”

description

Provocative is the first in the White Lies Duet, and this contemporary romance offers a perfect blend of mystery, intrigue, passion, and romance.

description

“Who burned you, Faith? And what scars did he leave?”

Faith Winter is an artist who has recently inherited her families winery. Although she has physically taken on the job of running the winery, she has been left financially bankrupt as her mother has left her cut off from the families bank accounts. As the bank tries to foreclose on the winery, Faith is scrambling to save her father’s legacy through the winery. Putting her art aside, she will do anything to salvage her families winery.

description

“I want him to spank me. I want to feel his hand on my backside. I want that sting and shock that leaves no room for anything else. No worry. No loss. No death. No guilt. And no room for the way Nick makes me feel too much.”

Nick Rogers “the tiger” is a ruthless lawyer who his wealthy, sexy, and a man on a mission to seek revenge for the death of his father. Although he despised his father, he wants to know what happened. Faith Winter is the key and when Nick decides he wants something he doesn’t stop until he gets it. But when he begins to pursue Faith, he begins to question her guilt, and he falls hard for her. But when Faith discovers the truth about why Nick came into her life, will she allow him to stay?

description

“Time spirals and sways until we collapse into each other, and for long moments, neither of us move. We just lay there, breathing together, heavy, then slower and softer. And still, we linger.”

Told in dual POV, Provocative is simply stunning! Nick and Faith are both complex characters that are driven to succeed. The sexual chemistry between the two is explosive as they both desire dominance and neither are willing to submit to the other. The dialogue is rich with color as the story begins to unfold. The pacing was upbeat as each and every piece of the mystery is revealed. With every question that is answered, a new question rises to the surface. The stakes are high for Nick to discover the truth about his father and keep a strong hold on Faith. As Faith finds solace in Nick, the trust they share is fragile, and when she discovers the truth, it might just shatter her completely.

description

Overall, Provocative is an absolute must read for romance fans who enjoy mystery, raw passion, and romance. I have long been a fan of this author’s work and I was truly blown away by this twisted plot and unforgettable characters. I am desperate for the next book in the duet to hit my Kindle! July can not get here fast enough!

Release Day Blitz ~ Damnable Grace – (Hades Hangmen #5) ~ by Tillie Cole

 

 

 

EVEN THE BROKEN, THROUGH LOVE, CAN FIND GRACE…

Secrets never stay hidden.

The burden of guilt never lifts from the heart.

Born and raised in The Order of David, Sister Phebe knows nothing but cult life. Head of the Sacred Sisters of New Zion, Phebe was groomed from childhood for one purpose: to seduce. Prized as a harlot, as a New Zion whore, Phebe is taken from the doomed cult by Meister, the notorious leader of the Aryan Brotherhood. Taken as his possession. Taken to be the woman who will obey his every sexual demand. Under his heavy hand, Phebe finds herself in a place much worse than she could ever have imagined… with absolutely no one to help. And no glimpse of hope.

Xavier ‘AK’ Deyes is content with his life as Sergeant-At-Arms of the Hades Hangmen. Leader of the infamous ‘Psycho Trio’ and ex-special ops sniper, AK knows how to fight. Experienced in warfare and schooled in military operations, AK is vital to the Hangmen. When his Vice President needs help retrieving his missing sister-in-law, Phebe, from a Klan-funded trafficking ring, AK volunteers to go in. AK remembers the redhead from New Zion. Remembers everything about her from the single time they met—her red hair, blue eyes and freckled face. But when he finds her, heavily drugged and under Meister’s control, her sorry condition causes him to remember more than the beautiful woman he once tied to a tree. Saving Phebe forces hidden demons from his past to return. A past he can never move on from, no matter how hard he tries.

As AK fights to help Phebe, and in turn she strives to help him, they realize their secret sins will never leave them alone. Kindred broken souls, they realize the only way they can be rid of their ghosts is to face them together and try to find peace.

Despair soon turns to hope, and damaged hearts soon start to heal. But when their deep, painful scars resurface, becoming too much to bear, the time comes when they must make a heavy choice: stay forever damned; or together, find grace.

Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and very mature topics. Recommended for age 18 and over.

CC’s ARC Review ~ Ripple Effect (Episode 4) by Keri Lake

Author: Keri Lake
Genre: Dark Erotic Romance/Suspense
POV: First Person – Dual
Rating: 4.5 Stars

description

In this final episode of Ripple Effect, all the plot elements intensify as they intersect and come to a finale. As revelations surface, Rip and Dylan are emotionally and physically tested. Acting on instinct, Dylan is forced to confront her past in the only way she is able. But Rip’s with expertise, it’s guaranteed to bring a bloodbath.

 

“You touched what’s mine, and you don’t fucking touch what belongs to another man. Particularly one in league with the devil, asshole.”


Knowing what is on the line and fully trusting what they have in each other, Rip and Dylan make the most of their time together. As it’s been prevalent throughout the series, the sexual compatibility between these characters is off the charts and Rip continues to hit all the right spots.

 

“He’s hit the jackpot somewhere inside of me, and I fall forward, catching myself on the bed. His big hands grip tight to my ass while his dick hammers into me, the tension in my belly tightening into a ball of excitement ready to detonate.”


Preparing for what is to come, Rip is willing to make sacrifices to protect those closest to him. With such serious consequences on the line, Dylan knows what Rip is willing to do but she doesn’t want him to act alone and she knows it’s time to claim what’s due. However, those with the most secrets are aligned with powerful forces and they are also committed to defending their own interests.

 

“Sometimes our weaknesses are what make us stronger than we realize.”


To say this series was action packed would be an understatement. The narrative is edgy but also grounded. Told in dual POV, the levity of the character’s lives and how they find strength in each other offers dimension to their paths. Additionally, the plot twists enhance the ongoing story line and provide for a strong finish.

Overall, Keri Lake delivers an energetic and captivating story with intensity, realism, trust and sacrifice. I highly recommend Ripple Effect!

CC’s Review ~ The Night Mark by Tiffany Reisz

Title: The Night Mark
Author: Tiffany Reisz
Genre: Romance/Historical Romance
POV: Third Person
Rating: 4.5 Stars

84425-goodreads-button

description

Faye Barlow is woman who experienced a tragedy four years earlier. Since then, she hasn’t been able to recover until she finally decides to move forward no matter the consequences. With a fortuitous job offer, Faye travels to South Carolina to restore her passion for photography and to find herself again. Having always been told that she lives in the past, Faye didn’t expect time to actually beckon her.

 

“Legend is, if a girl swims naked in those waters, she’ll find her true love right after.”


Carrick Morgan, a naval officer by training, is a quiet, self-sufficient and honest man who is the lighthouse keeper on an isolated island in the 1920s. After one woman enters his life, he’s sure of his affection and will protect her with all he knows. According to local legend, she was unexpectedly torn from Carrick’s life, but what transpires changes the course of fate.

 

“You’re a lady in my eyes. But I suppose you can be the lady of the lighthouse.”


After becoming enraptured with an abandoned lighthouse, one night Faye decides to visit the deserted island and tour the lighthouse on her own. As she walks onto the decrepit pier, she sees a mysterious recurring symbol that distracts her from the waves trying to ensnare her into the sea. From that point, Faye awakens in the arms of the man she’s always loved and her new life begins.

 

“You saved me, didn’t you?” “Saved you? Nah. I saw you fall off the dock and pulled you out of the water. That’s all.” “That’s kind of the definition of saving someone.”


As Faye realizes all isn’t what it seems, she acclimates to her new surroundings knowing that she really doesn’t have the incentive to leave. With her arrival, Carrick’s life alters due to time snapping back just enough for a redo; however, it feels so natural to Carrick as he sees the woman who is supposed to be with him. For Faye, putting together the pieces keeps her intrigued and also bound to Carrick in such delicious ways.

 

“She needed it from him, and he gave it to her so hard he grunted with every thrust as she groaned with every withdrawal. It was hot in the room, and the sweat and her wetness sealed them together. Her hips pulsed against his. She couldn’t get enough of him, no matter how hard he took her.”


Faced with reality of her travel, Faye remembers the future and must decide where she wants to remain. Being true to Carrick is imperative, as he must know that the heart, mind and body of the woman he originally knew is completely Faye. Both must make a choice but one holds the key to change it all.

 

“You see, a light’s night mark is its heartbeat. You know a man by his heart. You know a lighthouse by its beacon.”


For me, Carrick was a standout character, as he is honorable and straight shooter. The romantic element encircling Carrick was interesting on many levels and I was interested to see how Faye processed all her feelings toward Carrick in order to only see him. With Faye, she definitely had some struggles, but traveling to a different time seemed to offer her the peace she desperately needed. It wasn’t just about abandoning her world but she embraced what she always valued and seized the second chance.

There is no doubt that Tiffany Reisz is an incredible storyteller and she effortlessly manages to convey the heart of her characters as she offers poignant moments of pause and introspection. In addition to Carrick, Faye and significant secondary characters, the history and symbolism of the lighthouse enhances the nostalgia and romanticism of the era.

The Night Mark offers a story about a second chance at love and also at living life to the fullest. While the romance and time travel aspects are slightly unconventional, the message is still clear. This book would appeal to those who wish to get swept away by fate.
