*Book ends on a cliff hanger*

“I fell in love with these two and I can’t get enough of them. The ending ripped my heart out and stomped on it. I was hooked from page 1. This was so good!”- Goodreads Review

“I love you.” Make those words make this right.

“I love you!” Aly’s words are fierce as she demands me to hear them. “I’ve always loved you. Because despite all the betrayal and lies, I know it isn’t your fault, it’s mine. And maybe pity looks better on me than you. But I loved you way more than I ever knew I could. And I never want to love anyone else the way I allowed you to destroy me. How pathetic did it make me look?” Her face is in torment, and my air is choking for fresh starts.

“Don’t say that. Don’t ever say that, please.” There is evidence in my eyes, and I don’t want to release the pain yet. It is mine to be punished with.

“Okay, Lad, I think we’ve said enough.” Alyeska wipes her face and hands, but I can’t be done. She starts to walk away, and I follow her. Rush tries to stop me but it is impossible to let the woman I love more than swimming leave my life.

“It was real.” I bend my head down to the grass.

“Maybe to you, but to me, I didn’t know the difference.” Aly doesn’t look back as she walks away. I don’t blame her. I don’t blame anyone, except myself.

Lucas “Puck” Adams
Joining a motorcycle club at twenty-one was the only logical choice at the time. I became someone I don’t recognize anymore. Someone I don’t want to be. This is not the life I thought I’d have for myself. Now, it is twelve years later, and I am given the opportunity to leave. It comes with perks, the best one of them being Emily Stewart. So, I go for it. I got nothing to lose.
Emily Stewart
I was content with my quiet life and thought my future looked bright. A short trip to Texas leads me into the arms of a man who shows me all the passion I’d been missing. He is handsome and funny, and he wants me despite all my flaws. But when a blast from my very recent past threatens our new relationship, will he stand by me?
***Warning: This book is part 1 of the Lost trilogy and it ends in a cliffhanger. It also contains emotional triggers and some violence.***

Betraying the club that once saved me was easy. Dealing with the betrayal of the woman I am in love with is bitter. I want her despite myself. She’s become the beacon of light in the dark recesses of my mind. Realizing that I may have been wrong about her is a tough pill to swallow, and it leaves me at a crossroads. No matter which way I choose, I have everything to lose.
My life is spiraling out of control. I have not only betrayed the man who’s become the love of my life, but also myself. I can’t face the consequences of my own actions, especially since I don’t understand them. I want him to believe in me, but how can I ask that of him when I don’t believe in myself?
***Warning: This book is part 2 of the Lost trilogy and it ends in a cliffhanger. It also contains emotional triggers and some violence.***

Ghosts from my past poke their ugly heads, making me question whether everything I did for the last twelve years was for nothing. I brought my demons to Emily’s door, and now I have to deliver us from evil. Losing in order to win is my only option.
They say it is always smart to think things through and not jump into anything without having all the facts. However, no one has ever accused me of being smart. When given the choice of saving the man I love, I grab it with both hands. But am I really saving him if I play right into his enemy’s hands?

What do a grumpy sheriff and a perky midwife have in common? Absolutely nothing…other than an undeniable attraction to one another.

Sheriff Chase Calhoun is a driven man and as loyal as they come. Even though he admits to being a grumpy small-town sheriff, he loves his job and protecting the people in it. When it comes to his heart, though, he keeps a wall around it. The only people he lets in are his family members.

After putting a halt to the corruption in Missoula, things have just started to settle down, leaving him with too much time to think about his past. But then, a damsel in distress with an inexplicable, alluring personality sets her sights on him.

Atley Eastyn uprooted her ten-year-old spunky daughter and mother from Louisiana and hired on to be the new midwife in a place worlds away from the Bayou. When her Land Rover breaks down on a one-way bridge between two towns, she’s left in a position she doesn’t like. Atley has always been a self-sufficient woman, but now she finds herself in a situation where she needs help.

When the gorgeous, larger-than-life sheriff arrives to help her, she’s instantly smitten…until he opens his mouth to speak. He’s a tall, hunky cowboy with a grumpy personality, but Atley is determined to peel away all his protective layers to see the man underneath it all.

Can she get past his grumpiness? Will he open his heart and let her in? A simple, slow kiss from this alluring woman just might have him breaking all his rules.

Kiss Her Slow is the suspenseful fourth book in the Whiskey River West romantic western series. If you like gallant heroes, tender moments, and swoon-worthy steam, then you’ll love Kelly Moore’s passionate tale.

About the Author


“This author has the magical ability to take an already strong and interesting plot and add so many unexpected twists and turns that it turns her books into a complete addiction for the reader.” Dandelion Inspired Blog

Armed with books in the crook of my elbow, I can go anywhere. That’s my philosophy! Better yet, I’ll write the books that will take me on an adventure.

My heroes are a bit broken but will make you swoon. My heroines are their own kick-ass characters armed with humor and a plethora of sarcasm.

If I’m not tucked away in my writing den, with coffee firmly gripped in hand, you can find me with a book propped on my pillow, a pit bull lying across my legs, a Lab on the floor next to me, and two kittens running amuck.

My current adventure has me living in Idaho with my own gray-bearded hero, who’s put up with my shenanigans for over thirty years, and he doesn’t mind all my book boyfriends.

If you love romance, suspense, military men, lots of action and adventure infused with emotion, tear-worthy moments, and laugh-out-loud humor, dive into my books and let the world fall away at your feet.
