It's Complicated
by Nikki Prince | Interview

Love On Laird Avenue
Who said it would be easy for Tatum to leave her over-protective father, buy a 1911 bungalow, and start her own business at the same time? When things fall apart, literally, she hires a hunky home restoration specialist named Ryan to come to her rescue. She never dreamed he'd have his own ideas about protecting her...namely sabotaging her dates. "Love on Laird Avenue is a fine and much recommended read, not to be missed." Midwest Book Review
Heart Of Stone By Faye Hall
Slavery, corruption, and murder threaten to separate them. Isabella Miley is trapped. Her brother and protector is dead—murdered on a slave trader's ship—and now Samuel Buchanan, the man she fears most, has papers placing her in servitude to him. When he threatens to make her his wife and offer her out as payment to all the men he owes money to, she runs for her life, and straight into the arms of Ruben Stoneheart. But before she can ask for his help she finds herself dragged back to Samuel and into bondage. Ruben wanted a life far away from the blackbirding slave trade he was once involved in. He watched too many people die on those ships. That wasn't the life he wanted. He wants peace, a wife, family. When the Irish beauty Isabella ran into his arms, she stirred feelings in him unlike anything he'd ever experienced. Never could he have imagined her to be the wife of his once business partner, Samuel Buchanan. Curious how such a wondrous woman could have ended up entangled with a brute like Samuel, Ruben delves into her past, eager to know more about this woman he's quickly losing his heart to. What he finds is a slave contract with her name on it.

Secure with anonymity behind her laptop as a ghost-writer, Delilah was in total control to freely manipulate the male characters she created. The men in her stories were well scripted, and she was comfortable being the marionette in total control of every move they made.

With his lightning blue eyes, sultry deep voice and rugged sexual energy, this heartthrob was more than Delilah could resist. Jake was shattering all the stereotyped notions of men that Delilah had become accustomed to. But, was he merely saying what she wanted to hear, or was he truly sincere? Would Delilah finally be able to find love, or would Jake merely be an additional notch on her bedpost and her first heartbreak?

I love these alien romances because the authors let their imaginations free and the readers are lucky enough to witness it. These types of books have great world-building and the story lines that are so intricately plotted. There's so much going on with the various characters that you get sucked into this world and its politics and the lives of these characters, and you're sitting on the edge of your seat wanting to find out what happens next. As always, there's a central romance that is full of emotion and action and has a wonderful happy end. It's fascinating to see how everything interweaves and connects and how it all unfolds."
