HOT BLOODED: PART II, second sensual Dark Kings tale set in the wild Highlands of Scotland, where love and danger collide…
Heat infused her wherever Laith touched. Breathing became difficult as he caressed up her sides until he cupped her face. His head lowered, and she rose up to meet him. Their lips met, sending sparks of desire and need zipping through her. He moaned, low and needful, causing her knees to weaken. She wrapped her arms around his waist and simply held on.
A WARRIOR WITH EVERYTHING TO LOSE
Iona harbors a secret that others would kill to possess and Laith will do whatever he must to keep her safe. But what burns between them threatens to consume them both. Will she complete him—or destroy him?
Worldbuilding: Love the Dark Kings world, plus the Scotland setting.
Characters: Iona and Laith are awesome, but we get to focus on a some really awesome other characters as well, like Rhi, and Rhys (wove him!), and Lily of course…I am so looking forward to the next stories in the series, seriously!
And I love Con too, though sometimes he’s harder to get…at least for now.
Plot: I love how the story slowly branches out into a few potential tangents for future stories, giving the reader a good look into more than the main pair.
Writing: Third person, past tense narrative, mostly his and her POV (Iona and Laith), with some interesting and tantalizing contributions from other characters mentioned above
Curb Appeal: Yum cover, hooking blurb, instant-buy author name.
Loved the second part of the novel, and though it’s a bit tough to limit each fluttering thoughts on the serial installment, I am giving it my best shot, lol! Get these babies and read them, as serial or as a full novel when it comes out, end of December.
