Synopsis



Kelly 

Everyone has their kryptonite, mine just so happens to be him. The womanizer, the male whore and the sexiest man you’ll ever lay your eyes on. With his dark hair, penetrating eyes, and his god like body beckoning to be touched, you can’t help but be hypnotized by the man.
He makes me want things I don’t deserve, makes me feel things I didn’t think I’d ever experience again, not after the hurt I’ve caused, the damage I’ve done. Yet, when I’m with him or he’s around, I feel free, light, like I can finally live.

He’s everything I swore to stay away from, yet, like a moth to a flame, I know I’m about to get burned.


Dante

I’m not a fan of the word no. Well, that was until the little vixen Kelly Dean said it to me. Not just once, but over and over again. I used to think of her ‘‘no’’ as foreplay, now they make me feel the total opposite.

One night was all it took for me to become addicted to her. One night for me to screw up the best thing that had ever happened to me and one night for my world to start falling apart piece by piece.

My mission to make it up to her isn’t as clear cut as I thought it would be. How was I to know two people from my past were going to make it difficult?
Thankfully one is here to make amends, but unfortunately, the other is here for revenge.
Now I’m praying like hell that at the end of this battle, she’s my gift. After all, it’s her I’m fighting for.

I’m Harlow Evans. Shortly after my parents were murdered I moved in with my Grandma.

It meant switching schools, losing friends, and moving away from the only home I knew. All I wanted was to finish the school year hassle free.

Switching seats on that first day altered my life. After surviving the loss of my parents I never thought anything could break me, but then HE came into my life....

He wants to hurt me

Destroy me

Ruin me

Tragedy brought me here, and a cruel twist of fate has me desperate to leave. There's also someone here that has me fighting to stay though.

All my life I’ve lived in the shadows, trying to go unnoticed, until I met HIM....

Malik Carter....

He’s broody, quiet, and holding on to a dark past. From that first meeting I was drawn to him, his painfully gorgeous looks and model physique, but I also knew he was totally out of my league.

He's the boy next door who, with his domineering personality, has somehow etched his way into my life.

When the Carter Brothers take it upon themselves to protect me from what’s coming, I’m not sure whether to be relieved or shocked.

You see, when a Carter brother loves, they love fiercely, strongly and protectively. No one can get in their way. They’re also used to getting what they want, even if it means getting hurt.

There’s one thing you should know about the Carter brothers before you read my story....

If you mess with one, you mess with them all.

About Lisa


Lisa Helen Gray (1987) born in Birmingham. All Lisa has ever wanted to do in life, apart from be a mother, is to read and write, and at a certain age she wanted to be a princess.We can all dream, right?

Serious note though, she has been a passionate reader ever since her Nan first handed her The Three Gollywogs by Enid Blyton. After that, she lived in a land of fantasy. 

First came Buffy the Vampire Slayer, then Angel, and it went on to Twilight and The Hunger Games. Some would say she is a daydreamer, but she is just a firm believer that there is a happily ever after. Hence, her huge love of romance novels.

She got into reviewing other author’s novels, and then decided to publish her own work. Bringing us to her first novel, If I could I'd wish it all away (2014).

She always has her head stuck in a romance novel and is often (too often) reminded of this. When she hasn't got her head stuck in a book or writing her next novel, she is glued to the TV series Pretty Little Liars, walking dead, The Originals, The Vampire Diaries and of course, Veronica Mars. Just an ordinary girl surround by extraordinary books

Release Blitz - THE HIDDEN LIBRARY by Heather Lyons

THL RDL Banner  


We are dying to jump back down the rabbit hole with Heather Lyons' THE HIDDEN LIBRARY! THE HIDDEN LIBRARY is an Adult Romantic Fairy Tale, full of adventure and fantasy and the second book in Heather’s The Collectors' Society Series! Check out the latest fantastic installment in this series that brings you some of the classics with a twist.


  The Hidden LIbrary Cover

 Amazon ** Amazon UK ** Barnes and Noble **iBooks ** Kobo



Excerpt:
We are about to open the conference room door and enter the hallway when he stops. He turns to me, his lovely eyes achingly sincere. “I want to take you on a date when all of this craziness is over. A real one. We’ve kind of gone about this all backwards, haven’t we?”

One corner of my mouth lifts up. “Are you saying you’d like to court me?”

There is no playfulness to his face, no quirk to his own lips. My heart flutters at his seriousness. “Yes.”

He wants to court me.

Too many emotions rush around in a caucus race throughout my body. I have no doubts of Huckleberry Finn Van Brunt’s feelings toward me. I understood them two minutes ago just as well as I did this morning when I woke up and from the night before and from the day in Wonderland where he said, in not so many words, that he was falling in love with me.

I told him he was my north star, and meant it. He countered we are binaries.

He and I . . . We’ve never said those words, though, not the ones that truly spell out fragile, deep secrets of a heart and soul. Words so easily and yet unfortunately uttered by many, be it to express their appreciation of fried bits of potatoes to sports teams on the television. Words offered so frivolously about a variety of subjects and yet can be the most difficult, most painful, most meaningful, most cherished syllables we gift another person.

I have said these words before, to another man. Another man I still love. One I know, in the deepest confines of my heart, that I will love until the last breath escapes my body. A man who courted me in secret and then publicly in the face of astonishment, disapproval, confusion, and, in the end, prophesies.

I have willingly given the man in front of me my heart, though, whether he knows it or not. He now holds it in his hands, and while I pray he is my future, there is still a part of me that bucks in conflicted confusion and delight by this declaration of his.

He wants to court me.

And yet, as sweet and romantic as such a gesture might be, I require no such formalities. My affections for Finn Van Brunt have already solidified into something real and wonderful and meaningful.

The Hidden Library (The Collectors' Society, #2)The Hidden Library by Heather Lyons
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m just going to apologize in advance for this crazy chaotic fangirl review, that I can only hope will make sense. Nothing I say will come close to doing this book the justice it deserves but please bear with me as I try.

The Collectors’ Society AND The Hidden Library are the first books to be on my Favorite Reads of 2015 list…and we’re only two months into the year. I am absolutely blown away, speechless, amazed, you name it. My socks have been so thoroughly knocked off that at this point I can’t even find them. I will say without a doubt that these books are going to be hard to top. Ms. Lyons has set the bar so incredibly high, as far as I’m concerned. She has created a world that is unlike anything I have ever come across before. Her imagination is nothing short of amazing. I can’t even begin to imagine the amount of time and energy she put into researching the different characters she’s included in the series, but boy am I 110% grateful for it and in complete awe of her hard work.

I signed up to review The Hidden Library completely unaware of the fact that it was the 2nd book in the series (not the first time I’ve done that), but completely head over heels in love with the idea of this alternate view of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, one of my all time favorite stories. What I never imagined was all the other classic tales that would find their way into this incredibly unique story. My excitement grew with each new addition to the story and every twist and turn. Reading, for me, has always been about the escape. The crazier and less realistic the better! So as a child I was immediately drawn to this incredible story of a little girl who disappears into a rabbit hole and has the most fantastic adventures imaginable meeting the most curious creatures. Naturally I jumped at the chance to delve further into what happened to Alice after Wonderland. Ms. Lyons does NOT disappoint. I’ve walked away with more of an appreciation for this favorite tale of mine and a strong desire to read the other classics mentioned. She has shone a light on these treasures that I have been overlooking for years, and I seriously cannot wait to dive into those worlds. I want to find as many as I can and devour them, just to get closer to the storybook legends she has brought to life.

So about THL...Imagine a world in which your favorite characters from your most beloved stories actually exist! Their lives have played out exactly as described in their individual stories. Amazing right?! Right. Except, these stories are in danger of being eliminated for good, every last person in them gone. The world and all its inhabitants just cease to exist. Even crazier, right?! Right. Stretch your imagination a little further and consider the idea that there is a special society dedicated solely to the preservation of these worlds, or timelines as they’re referred to in the book. What you’ve got is one intense, action-packed, page turner that you will not be able to put down.

What I loved most about the sequel is the use of dual POV’s. In TCS we heard the story from Alice’s POV, this time around we get to hear it from Alice AND Finn. Adding a second POV brings so much more to the table, giving the reader more than one perspective and vantage point. I think it also helped the storyline take a sexier turn, believe it or not. I really enjoyed hearing Finn’s thoughts and feeling his emotions. His childhood was just as chaotic as Alice’s, the only difference being his was based in the “real world” while Alice was in…Wonderland. The historical aspect of his story was absolutely fascinating, a wonderful touch to the story.

I haven’t been this excited about a series in a very long time and I seriously cannot wait for the next installment. Needless to say, I HIGHLY recommend this series. These are not standalones, you must read The Collectors’ Society before starting The Hidden Library.

EXCERPT

She lay naked on the white linen sheet, her golden blonde hair fanned out across her pillow. She had been my all, the one to come into my life, cause havoc, and claim my heart. She had been my everything. My greatest desire. The fuel that pumped through my veins.
The sun beamed down on her skin, glistening on her flawless fair body. Almost flawless anyway.

The marks from our recent times in the playroom were still visible, her wrists that were tucked under her chin revealing a crimson burn from her pulling on the restraints. Her plump breast scarred from the lashes of the flogger, and her upper thighs holding the same marks as her breast.

I was terrified at the pain I had caused her, but horrified that I wanted to cause more.

Braelynn had repeated over and over that she loved the marks and the pleasures they gave her. Since she had rejected my proposal, I began to feel that she was slipping away. The grasp I had over her was fading and my need for her had been replaced with rage and want. I needed to punish her for saying no, whip her flesh when I felt her slipping out of my hands. Though I was sickened once we were done, massaging the welts kissing them with my love, I reveled in her moans and her screams of pleasure made me hungry for more.

She had turned me into the monster I now was. Possessive, demanding, and hungrier for her than I had ever been. Her arousal when I slid deep inside her had me on the brink of losing myself. The way she came around me, choking my cock … it was indescribable. But when she bowed her head, her blonde hair covering her face as she submitted to me, that had my inner Dom crawling out of my body, wanting to take full reign over hers.

And I did.

For the past six weeks she’d spent every night with me, letting me have full possession of her weak body. But the nagging voice in my head kept saying that our time was limited.

“You’re doing it again,” she whispered, her voice filled with exhaustion. Her eyes peered open when she spoke.

I leaned forward, kissing the tip of her nose. “I don’t know what you’re talking about,” I lied.

“Yes, you do. You’re thinking so loud I can hear it in my sleep.”

“Lynn—”

“Stop it!” Her eyes flashed open, and a sea of green and brown specks pierced me. “You aren’t hurting me.”

I shook my head, completely disagreeing with her. “Look at the bruises on your skin.” I traced my hand over her soft breast.

“I have a safe word and I have yet to use it.” She pulled the cover over her blemished flesh and turned on her side.

She hadn’t used it yet…

But would she?
