Rayne Kilpatrick has everything. A job she’s dreamed of since a little girl. The perfect house. And a man she loves and is about to marry… Until he never returns from a humanitarian mission.

When footage of his gruesome murder by a Muslim extremist group is shown across the country and around the globe, she wants the person responsible for the disappearance of the man she loves to pay. She wants him to lose the one person who means the world to him, too, and she won’t stop until he does.

Review of Vanished
VanishedVanished by T.K. Leigh
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4-4.5
From war-torn Afghanistan to the fishing docks in South Boston, this international thriller could have been ripped from the headlines. In Vanished, T.K. Leigh spun an intricate web infused with mystery, murder, and suspense, all wrapped around a women’s humanitarian mission. This fast paced multi-layered story had enough twists and turns to keep your head spinning and your heart-pounding from the first page to the last.

EXCERPT

This was no longer home to a fearless girl who had more love for Olivia than she deserved. This would now become a place of nightmares for her daughter. Would she ever be able to sleep in this room again? Would she ever want to sleep alone? Would she ever feel safe?
                Olivia struggled to come to terms with what Melanie’s life would be like if she survived this. She hadn’t done anything to deserve this. Alexander wasn’t without his faults, and neither was Olivia, but Melanie was so young, so pure, so innocent. Now, at far too young an age, she would be jaded by the cruelties of the world.
                Would she ever see her smile again?
                Would she ever hear her carefree laugh?
                Would she ever feel her unconditional love as she flung her arms around her?
                Bleakness invaded Olivia right down to her core as she fell onto Melanie’s unmade bed. Sheets that were once warm from her presence had grown cold, and Olivia could no longer keep it in. She wasn’t just watching a made-for-TV movie about a successful, semi-famous family losing their daughter. She was living the nightmare. wishing with everything she had that this would all be over soon, that it wasn’t real.
                “Wake up!” Olivia screamed, slapping her face as relentless tears streamed down her cheeks. She curled into a ball, the torment growing inside her becoming unbearable. It felt like someone was ripping her open with sadistic apathy, the pace languid and sluggish, taking pleasure from each strained breath she struggled to capture. Her skin prickled with the heat of a thousand branding irons. No matter how loud she screamed, it wouldn’t dull the pain.
                “Wake up, Olivia!” she bellowed again, louder and more desperate. Nothing worked. No matter what she did, no matter how loud her cries, nothing would wake her from this nightmare.
                Sobs wracked through her body as she fought for air. She tried to gain control over her body and tears, but it was useless. She was no longer in command of her own destiny. Even the seemingly innate task of inhaling and exhaling had become arduous and complicated. Melanie was her lifeline, her reason for living. Without her, Olivia’s heart gave out, her lungs refused to work, her body shut down.
                Suddenly, a pair of familiar, strong arms cradled her, lifting her off the torturous bed, cocooning her in a shelter only they could provide. They comforted her sobs, giving her exactly what she needed. She cried into her husband’s chest, a hundred tears falling for every regret. No words were spoken. Lowering himself to the floor, he simply held her in his lap, wiping her tears, providing her with warmth in this cold, hateful world.
                She didn’t know how many minutes ticked by as he remained there, silently assuring her with his presence that they would get through this, that everything would work out. Still, she knew they would never be the same. This had shaken their family to its core. There was no returning to the way things were before.
                Olivia cried harder.
                She cried for all the time she should have spent with her daughter instead of working tirelessly for one charity or another. She cried for all the times she told her no when she should have said yes. Yes, we can have pancakes for dinner. Yes, we can go feed the ducks at the pond. Yes, we can make Christmas cookies in July.
                Exhaustion set in as her cries subsided and she closed her eyes. The last thing she saw before drifting off was Melanie standing alone in a dark room, a blank expression on her pale face.

DECEPTION
Release Day May 3rd


DECEPTION, book THREE of FIVE in Aleatha Romig's INFIDELITY series.
"Infidelity - it isn't what you think"

It all began in Del Mar, a chance meeting with a single rule--one week only.

Or did it?

Lennox ‘Nox’ Demetri and Alexandria ‘Charli’ Collins had every intention of following it but rules are made to be broken. In CUNNING they are reunited with Nox setting down new rules for the game and Charli having no choice but to follow them.

Now, once again, the game has changed. Nox and Charli’s hot sensual encounter has grown into something more but it is threatened with secrets and regrets. Is it their love and intense sexual chemistry that’s pushing them together or something darker, a puppetmaster behind the scenes pulling the strings on their love affair?

Shadowy villains lurk around each corner and everyone is suspect as Nox’s and Charli's pasts collide with the present and threaten to compel them back to their predestined fates.

Can deals brokered in the past be negated by something as pure as love and as steamy as the attraction shared by Nox and Charli? Or was it all a deception—starting with that very first meeting?

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a sexy, new dominant hero who knows what he wants and a strong-willed heroine who has plans of her own. With classic Aleatha Romig twists and turns, the depth of this epic romantic suspense continues to reach new levels as past and present intertwine. The Infidelity series will have readers swooning one minute and screaming the next.

Have you been Aleatha'd?

DECEPTION is a full-length novel, over 300 pages, and the third of five books in the INFIDELITY series - It isn't what you think!
(This series is not about nor does it advocate or condone cheating)

REVIEW
Deception (Infidelity, #3)Deception by Aleatha Romig
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have been Aleatha'd again. That ending. Nope just NOPE! Full review to follow.

UPDATED REVIEW
5.0 stars
Title: Deception (Book #3 Infidelity Series)
Author: Aleatha Romig
Release Date: May 3, 2016

Deception is the third installment in the Infidelity Series. If you have read the first two books there isn’t a chance in hell you are not reading Deception. Once again I have been Aleatha’d. There are only a few authors that make me embrace a cliffhanger ending. Aleatha is one of them. Her writing is simply brilliant. Aleatha is my go-to author when I want a smart, sexy suspense story. The key word here is smart. The intricate plot and character development she delivers is top notch. This book, like her others, is going to keep you thinking and on your toes. I’m not going to regurgitate the synopsis of this book. I will say there are a lot of hot twists and turns that had me craving more! I loved the way Aleatha connected all of the dots from past to present. Who should Charli trust? Are Nox’s family debts forged in blood? Did the sh*t hit the fan Aleatha style? It sure did.

BETRAYAL (Book #1)
One week. No future. No past. No more.
Alexandria Collins has one week to live carefree—no ghosts of her past or pressures of her future haunting her. Reinventing herself as "Charli," she is knocked off her feet by a sexy, mysterious man who brings her pleasure like she never imagined.  With her heart at stake, she forgets that decisions made in the dark of night reappear in the bright light of day.

"Some of my tastes are unique. They aren’t for everyone. I understand that.”

Lennox "Nox" Demetri is wealthy, confident, and decisive—he knows what he wants. From the first time he sees Charli at an exclusive resort, he knows he wants her. Although he is usually the one to make the rules, together they agree on one:  

One week. No more.

When betrayal comes from those closest to Alexandria, she must decide how far she is willing to go to survive. Choices are not always easy, especially when they involve the heart, body, and soul. After all, Infidelity is a business, and some rules are meant to be broken.

"Is it really cheating if you're doing it to yourself?"

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a sexy, new dominant hero who knows what he wants, and a strong-willed heroine who has plans of her own. With classic Aleatha Romig twists, turns, deceptions, and devotions, this new epic dark romance will have readers swooning one minute and screaming the next. Have you been Aleatha'd?

One year. No future. A past that won't go away.
Lennox "Nox" Demetri broke his own rule by making a deal. It may not have been directly with the devil, but that doesn't mean Satan himself isn't watching. Was it fate that brought Charli into his life and his bed? What will happen when rules are broken and secrets are revealed?
"New rules...my rules."
Alex "Charli" Collins found pleasure with Nox like she'd never known. That was before she knew his last name. Now that Infidelity is involved and the rules have changed, what will result when real life and fantasy collide?

EXCERPT:
Gripping the phone, I nodded, though I knew he couldn't see me.
"If I were there, I'd unwrap you, like a fucking Christmas present. Each piece of your clothing would find its way to the floor as I exposed your perfect, sexy-as-hell body. I'd run my fingers and tongue over every inch of that soft skin, tasting you and leaving goose bumps as a trail of my exploration."
My eyes closed as his words touched me.
"Princess, I'd punish your ass for your insolence in pushing to go back to the city tomorrow and for scaring the shit out of me by not answering your phone. Then after I turned it fire-engine red, I'd make it feel better, showing you how much I admire your strength and determination."
My neck strained as I sucked in a breath, lifting my behind from the mattress and imagined all he described.
"I'm not there," Nox continued, "but I'm going to take what I can get. Do you have a problem with that?"
"N-no." My voice sounded wonton, even to my own ears.
"Now, princess, tell me what you're wearing."
I hurriedly kicked back the covers, revealing my yoga pants and stocking-covered feet. "A big t-shirt, yoga pants, socks..."
"Stop."
I sucked my lower lip between my teeth, waiting for his next command.
"Tell me what I want you to be wearing."
"Nox?"
"Is the bedroom door locked?" he asked.
"I-I don't remember."
"Lock the door, Charli."
Without thinking, my feet, covered with fuzzy socks, landed on the soft rug that surrounded the big bed. My socks slid as I skated across the wood floor, no longer worried about ghosts or Demetri secrets.
My thoughts were now consumed with everything Nox.
I tested the knob. As I did, it clicked and the small button within the knob popped out. I pushed the button back in and verbally confirmed my mission. "The door's locked."
"Are the blinds shut?"
I turned toward the windows. Was it still raining? I couldn't hear anything but the way Nox's voice reverberated through the phone, sending shockwaves throughout my body, my blood coursing to keep up. "They're shut."
"Keep the lights on."
My hand lingered over the switch. Would he know if I disobeyed?
"Tell me they're on."
With a sigh, I did as he said and moved my hand away from the switch. "They're still on."
"Now, put me on speaker phone. I want you to fix the attire problem we mentioned earlier."
My lower lip disappeared as I hit the speaker button and laid my phone on the bed.
"Charli, you need to respond to me. I can only hear you."
"Yes, Nox."
