Praise for Gone to Dust, Book 2:

 

 

“Lucky fans of the super-talented Hart don’t have to wait long for the second installment of her new romantic suspense series Gravediggers, as the installments are being released back to back. In the first book, Hart set up her world where five men, declared dead to the world at large, work for a super-secret anti-terrorism force. Hart’s new heroine is a very talented romance writer who takes no crap from anyone — even secret commandos. Miller and Elias are both funny and sexy together, which helps make this book nonstop entertainment, with plenty of witty bantering and thrilling adventure!”—RT 4 ½ star TOP PICK Review

 

“Modern Cliterature…Enjoy [this] lusty [passage] adapted from summer’s raciest reads…”Cosmopolitan, July 2017

 Praise for The Darkest Corner, Book 1:

“Gritty, deadly, and peppered with unexpected humor, this supersexy, adrenaline-charged story will keep readers on edge and breathless until the last page.”—Library Journal

 

“Liliana Hart sets up a fascinating and intriguing premise of individual men forced into taking extreme steps. Her heroine’s reluctant immersion into this world allows readers to discover the treachery and danger looming all around…a thrilling series!”—RT

 

“A cool blend of entertaining antics and suspenseful moments, with a slightly morbid sense of humor thrown in for good measure. (Our heroine was a mortician, after all!) I had a blast getting to know this cast of characters and can’t wait to see what exciting things Liliana Hart has in store for us next.”—Harlequin Junkie

 About the book:

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Liliana Hart’s second book in her sexy, suspenseful Gravediggers series, GONE TO DUST, features an elite group of mysterious men who might be dead to the world, but are also tasked with saving it—and no one can ever know.

 

The Gravediggers aren’t exactly what they seem. They’re the most elite of the world’s fighting forces—and all they have in common is that they’ve been betrayed by the countries they’ve died for. Because they are dead. To their country, their military, and their families. Sometimes the dead do rise…

 

Miller Darling is one of the most popular romance novelists of her time. Not bad for a woman who doesn’t believe in romance. She’s as logical as they come, and she doesn’t believe in happily-ever-afters. What she does believe in is family, so when her brother disappears, she doesn’t think twice about packing her bag and her laptop and heading out to find him.

 

Elias Cole lived and breathed the live of a Navy SEAL. Now he’s “dead” and his hero’s honor tarnished. The only thing keeping him sane are the men who are like him—The Gravediggers—and the woman who makes his head spin. He’s never met anyone like Miller Darling. Her smart mouth and quick wit keep him on his toes, and damned if he doesn’t find that appealing.

 

When Miller receives a package from the brother who abandoned her asking for help, it’s clear she’s in over her head with the mess he’s gotten himself into. She needs a professional, and Elias is just the man for the job. Only her brother is a former SEAL—the man who left his team to die—and Elias is more interested in vengeance than saving his life.

QUICKIE REVIEW

 

I personally enjoyed the characters in the book, Miller and Elias’ banter was hilarious. Their chemistry scorching, and I couldn’t put the book down! It was sexy and packed with adventure. I’ve not had a chance to read the first book, and I don’t think I missed out on anything, except for an amazing story. (I’ve remedied that, by buying the first book in the series). But you can definitely follow along and get the gist as you get a bit of backstory from how the gravediggers were born. I’m invested in the series and can’t wait to see who the others fall for! Bravo! Excellent read!

ARC Review: The Haunted Sultan by Gillian Zane **Quick Giveaway**

ARC Review: The Haunted Sultan by Gillian Zane **Quick Giveaway**

If I had to describe this story it would be the group of words you see above. Owen, Sierra, Sex, Blood, Sultan and so many more. This is not like any book you’ve read before. It’s different. Zane’s voice is fresh and witty. “There was soo much blood” was my thought as I got to the meat of the story, but then there was also the adventure. The mystery, the beginnings of a somewhat “interesting relationship” between the two main characters Owen and Sierra. There was also the Sultan, who at times made me laugh with his outright “honest” behavior. He couldn’t help himself. He’s the Sultan for crying out loud.

This was definitely an adventure, fraught with peril, a Jinn, and some naughty, yet at times “interesting” scenes. I say “interesting” loosely here, and not in a bad way. You just have to read it to understand what I’m talking about. The story is vivid, and is based off of the actual telling of the Gardett-Laprete House in the New Orleans French Quarter. I probably should have thrown Ghost story up there in the words above, as that is part of the theme of the story, but I will say this. If you’re ever in Nola, and you go into a shop, and get something for free, you better make sure you know exactly what you’re getting into! I would rate this book a 4.5 stars. There is no rhyme or reason why it’s not a 5 because I know others will give it such a rating. I’m used to the author’s voice, and I adore it. I think what threw me for a loop was the “interesting” naughty scene. Now, it was not a bad scene, but it did take me out of my moment for a minute and made me think. “Oh gees, this is not happening.” But it did happen and after the vivid picture it painted inside my head was done playing it’s high-light reel, I had to set the book down for a moment and think happy thoughts.

If you’re down for the dark and gritty voice that can be found in Zane’s Nola Zombie series, then you’re definitely down for this. If you’ve never read Zane, and would like a go of it, then start with Nola, that way you’ll be ready for this beauty when it drops in June! Happy Reading folks, definitely a recommended read from me!

Skeleton Key Book Series
One Skeleton Key. Endless Adventures.
https://skeletonkeybookseries.com

The Sultan’s Palace is one of the most horrific tales of New Orleans’ historic French Quarter. The Sultan, a Turkish man who lived there in the late 1800s, is said to be seen staring down at people on the street from the third-floor balcony of the house nicknamed The Sultan’s Palace. On most nights in the French Quarter, haunted tour groups traipse past the majestic house while tour guides weave tales of mass murder, thieving pirates and jealous brothers…but none know the real truth.

Sierra is spending her twenty-first birthday with her best friend in New Orleans. It’s Halloween and what better way to celebrate the night than on a spooky haunted tour? Sierra has to have the whole package though, and with her best friend leading the way, they find a costume shop down a dark alley and a mysterious shopkeeper who has the perfect costume for her. She doesn’t want money though, only a favor, help the one that asks. Clothed in a breathtaking costume, with a mysterious key around her neck, Sierra goes on the haunted tour and quickly forgets the strange shopkeeper, especially as she strikes up a conversation with Owen and sparks begin to fly. She doesn’t remember the words of the shopkeeper until someone asks for help…and the key around her neck opens the door to the Sultan’s Palace.

“Ali,” he said with a nod.

“Yeah, well, look Ali, you’re nice and all, but I’m not interested. The only reason why I didn’t fight you more was because of the spell. I’m kinda sort of with Owen and we have a job to do and it doesn’t involve getting sweaty and naked.”

“Kinda sort of?” Owen asked, eyebrow raised.

“Don’t want to assume anything. We did only hookup because of the aforementioned lust spell,” she whispered to him.

“The fact you used aforementioned in a sentence makes me want to turn kinda sorta into yes please.”

His face lit up in a grin and she had the desperate urge to kiss him.

“Yes, please,” she grinned back. “And all it takes is words to get you all hot and bothered?”

“Writer,” he shrugged and leaned in.

Giveaway

New to Gillian Zane? Want to read RUN? Well here’s your chance! Comment on the blog for a chance to win RUN! (E-book format)  Winner picked on Sunday!

RUN_PROOF_YELLOWRUN | Zombies are on the loose in New Orleans and of all the End of the World scenarios, Alexis Winter wasn’t prepared for this one. But, an apocalypse is an apocalypse and she should have this covered. She has been “prepping” for the last three years. The problem is location and timing. She’s stuck downtown and she has to get to her house on the outskirts of the city so she can get her supplies and bug-in (for the “non-preppers” this means hole up and stay safe).

Agreeing to work on a Saturday is now coming back to bite her on the ass big time. Hopefully, it won’t be a literal bite by the walking dead.
Luck favors the prepared, and as luck would have it, it comes in the form of the ridiculously hot Blake Miller. Former military man, current mercenary, Blake Miller, the man with the plan, his goal: steal a boat and trek up the Mississippi until they find safety. Alexis thinks this is a great plan and she decides to team up with Blake. The two team up in unexpected ways as they find they can’t keep their hands off of each other even when the world is falling down around them.

Can Alexis and Blake survive the end of the world, and if they do make it through the night, find a place that is safe and secure? Can their newfound attraction lead them down the road to love or heartbreak?

Zombies, sex, romance and carnage…you can’t get any better than this.

Be warned, there will be monsters, living and dead, there will be very intense sex scenes and there will be three books in the series.
