Blurb:

When sin and innocence collide, passion ignites.

 

Aurora McNamara refuses to continue living in fear. More than anything, she yearns to be free from her cruel father and his nefarious plans.

 

When she’s whisked away under the cloak of darkness, her circumstances take an unexpected turn.

 

Unwilling to allow her choices to be taken from her once more, Aurora plots her escape. But how can she tear herself away from the one man whose skilled touches and tantalizing kisses leave her breathless?

 

Kieran Hunt belongs to one of the world’s most feared syndicates. Cold. Ruthless. Jaded. A merciless sinner with no conscience and no regrets. His sole goal is to destroy the man responsible for his father’s death.

 

By honoring a blood oath, he claims Aurora as his wife. But what was meant to be a marriage of obligation instead awakens intense feelings he can’t ignore.

 

Aurora, with her innocent beauty, is his and anyone who dares to challenge that will feel his wrath. Can a marriage filled with secrets and ever-lurking danger survive? Or will their blooming love prove powerful enough to overcome all obstacles?

Virginia Wallace Bio:

Virginia Wallace is a native of the Chesapeake Bay region, on the Southeast coast of the United States. Nomadic by nature, Virginia has lived all over, from the mountains of New England to the rolling hills of the American Heartland.

She began her creative career during her late teens and early twenties, working as a freelance portrait and commercial artist. She slowly transitioned into writing, eventually self-publishing three novels for the ‘indie’ book market. 

As a writer, Virginia Wallace has always worked at meshing modern stories with a lush style reminiscent of 19th-Century American and European literature. Her novel ‘When the White Knight Falls’ marks her debut into the mainstream book market.

Excerpts from Fatal Distractions

Excerpt #1 ( 83 Words) – Borrowed Time

Nineteen-year-old, newly-married Elinor Winthrop stared down at her dead body. 

It was strange, she thought, that she felt more curiosity than horror. Death was supposed to be a frightening thing, wasn’t it? Instead, she’d felt only a sudden pain in her head, and then … nothing. It was as if she was a candle, one that had simply—and rather matter-of-factly —been snuffed out. 

She knelt over her fallen body, eyeing it as though it was someone else’s corpse, and not her own.

Excerpt #2 ( 130 Words) – The Budsem Affair

“MOM!!!” gasped Holly. “What’s this?” 

“Don’t donate that,” said Mom, sounding alarmed. “That’s important to me!” 

“Why?” demanded Holly. “Is it from your wedding night?!” 

“Not exactly,” said Mom, blushing. “You always asked me how your father and I met?”

 “Yes …” “Maybe it’s time you knew,” said Mom. “And please, don’t donate that corset! It’s part of the story.”

 Holly eyed her mother with a raised eyebrow. Her mother had always just been … Mom, and her father a sweet—if occasionally clueless, and always honest—man. A leather corset certainly did not jive with her impression of her parents! 

“Go on …” prodded Holly, perhaps against her better judgment. 

“It was a sunny afternoon,” said Mom, “in 1972, in San Francisco. I was twenty at the time …”


Excerpt #3 (69 words) – The Protocals

 FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS, THE PLUTONIANS HAVE BEEN monitoring the earth from afar. 

At first it was just satellite data, readings taken from across the galaxy. But eventually a starship crew was trained to speak the language of one of earth’s dominant cultures, and sent to orbit the planet. 

Now, it was time to examine the earth up close and personal. Soon it would be time to infiltrate it.

Excerpt #4 (192 words) – Five Candles

“WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!”

 “Leave me alone, Mom!” snapped Jake, still brandishing his Glock. “These things are possessed!!!” 

His mother was dressed in a flannel gown, and her gray hair was wrapped tightly in curlers. “Are you doing them again, the drugs?” she demanded. 

“Why are you shooting my candles?!” “BECAUSE THEY CAME ON ALL BY THEM‐ SELVES!!!” shouted Jake. “One at a time, like some goddamn ghost turned ‘em on!” 

Maria DeCarlo walked toward the makeshift shooting range, ignoring her son’s brandished weapon. She picked up what was left of one of the candles, and held it up for inspection. 

“They didn’t come on all by themselves, the candles,” she said calmly. “You hold the switch in the middle, and the timer sets itself. They came on one at a time because I set them one at a time. I set them for early morning because that’s when I say the rosary. I like them when I pray to the Virgin.”

 Jake held his gun behind his back, ashamed. “So they’re not possessed?” “How messed up are you?!”demanded Maria bluntly

Author: Kendra Moreno
Genre: Dark Contemporary Reverse Harem
Release Date: November 18, 2022
 

★★★★★ Amazon Review – “This book is hands down the best contemporary book I have read this year and I loved every word”

★★★★★  Goodreads Review – “I loved, loved, loved this book! I normally don’t read contemporary but being this from my main girl I had to!!!! And I got hooked from page one!”
 
Welcome to Prey Island. . .
 
Billie watches enough serial killer shows to know she’s in deep trouble when she finds herself kidnapped and shoved in a cage with dozens of other people. What she doesn’t expect is to be dropped off on a remote island, given weapons, and told to run.
The Hounds have been released and they say she’s the prey.
Now, Billie is being hunted just like everyone else on the island. Trapped with nowhere to go, she finds herself teaming up with others in order to survive. Four men set her ablaze with their touch and threaten to corrupt her every moral, each as dangerous as the Hounds who hunt them. She may not be built for Prey Island, but she won’t be going down without a fight.
This rabbit has teeth and the only way out is to
Play the Game.
Squid Games meets Predator in this thrilling WhyChoose romance. If you love K.A. Knight, Jennifer L. Armentrout, Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti, pick up Prey Island now!

 
Kendra Moreno is secretly a spy but when she’s not dealing in secrets and espionage, you can find her writing her latest adventure. She lives in Texas where the summer days will make you melt, and southern charm comes free with every meal. She’s a recovering Road Rager (kind of) and slowly overcoming her Star Wars addiction (nope!), and she definitely didn’t pass on her addiction to her son (she did). She has one hellhound named Mayhem who got tired of guarding the Gates of Hell and now guards her home against monsters. She’s a geek, a mother, a scuba diver, a tyrannosaurus rex, and a wordsmith who sometimes switches out her pen for a sword.
 
If you see Kendra on the streets, don’t worry: you can distract her with talks about Kylo Ren or Loki.

“Bravo! This was a work of art. I was addicted and totally invested in this series. Wow!” ~ Tasha Talks Books Blog

UNRAVELED was the perfect ending to the Dark Sovereign series by Bella J!
Each and every book had me completely enthralled and the conclusion of Alexius and Leandra’s story did not disappoint!” ~ Kris P. Bacon
This book was nail biting, intense, sexy, thrilling and had me on the edge of my seat.
Alexius is 💯 Obsessed and possessive of His Wife.
It’s totally 🔥
You will absolutely not want to miss this book.
I freaking LOVED the Epilogue.”
~ Keza Campbell The Crazy Book Lady
 
I warned her.
I told her there’s no line I won’t cross to keep her.
And that’s what I did. I crossed a line.
Thing is, I don’t regret it. I’d do it again if I had the chance.
This all started with me needing a wife—a wife I didn’t want.
But things changed. She got under my skin and into my bed.
Now, I’m not willing to let her go.
Not even if she begs me to set her free.
She knew the risk.
She knew my love would come with a burden she’ll carry for the rest of her life.
And the rest of her life is now; it’s here with me as her husband.
Whether she spends it behind a locked door forever…that’s up to her.
Author’s note:
Unraveled is book three of the Dark Sovereign series and should be read after Alexius & His Wife. This is a dark, mature romance and contains situations that some readers might find offensive. This book is the final part of a trilogy and is NOT a standalone.
