Is there anything KL Donn can’t write?! I mean seriously…

When I read a blurb and it’s got that “Modern Day Fairy Tale” vibe I either skip it or devour it. There’s no middle for me. I either love it or hate it, swoon or roll my eyes. Like with dark romance, the fairy tale trope is a fine balance between creating something new, and keeping the theme. It’s walking a tight rope of heroine that needs help and one that is strong in her own right; between alpha hero and jerky prince.

Safe, In His Arms found that delicate balance between gag me with a spoon and “OMG I LOVE THIS.” Grace Hawthorne is a perfect mix of damsel in distress and independent woman. Trying to find her way in life after being held captive (basically) by her step mother, she’s trying to break the chains that have held her down for so many years.

Onyx Inwood is a man looking for something more than random hookups, but is lost between his job and reality. He hasn’t found the balance either, living his life trying to protect his community. From the moment he meets Grace, the moment he gets a fleeting glimpse, he knows she’s something special.

CUE THE CINDERELLA VIBES.

Safe, In His Arms is a novella. It’s short, sweet, and sexy. I’d say it’s classing KL, but that would be a lie (see the Adair series). Honestly, after the dark and intense emotions she put me through in the Adair Empire, I kept waiting for the crazy twist. Spoiler: It never came. Why? Because I think we all needed something fluffy to keep us sane. There’s only so much death and torture a person can take.

From the description, I was hooked. KL didn’t leave me disappointed either. Honestly, you should just expect a 5 star review from me for any of KL’s books. She blows me away with each and every novella and story she weaves. I’m still waiting for another full length novel, because I can never get enough of her, but I take what I can get.

If this book leaves you wanting anything, it’ll leave you wanting more.

LIKE ANOTHER EPILOGUE *HINT HINT NUDGE NUDGE*

Royal Brat by Madison Faye Review

20440-royally2bscrewed2bseriesnewarcbannerblurbRoyal Brat Ebook CoverShe’s looking for trouble. Well, here I am.
Royal brat, meet royal hand of discipline.
And I’m going to teach that royal heiny a lesson she’ll never forget…

It takes a strong hand to be King. It takes discipline, and control. I may be rough around the edges, but as King, my rules will be followed, not challenged.
…That all goes to hell when she barges into my world. Duchess Riley Noles – blonde, blued-eye, and five-foot-four of pure f*cking trouble.
She’s wild, out of control and all sorts of challenging – a pretty little hurricane crashing right into me. And when I catch her red-handed screwing with my car, oh, there’s going to be hell to pay.
But then, this tempting little firecracker may have just found exactly the trouble she’s been looking for. And when her soft moans tease through my ears, and her sweet curves press against my hard body, the last of my meticulous control might just be broken.
She’s all sass and vinegar, but as King, I always get what I want. And with her, I’ll have it all – her body, her heart, and her sweet submission, over my knee and saying “yes please”.
You know what they say about pretty little rich girls who look for trouble: they always find it.
And Duchess Riley is about to find it with me.
…every inch of it.

Hear ye, hear ye! A Queen-sized helping of insta-love, kindle-melting steam, and a filthy-talking alpha, all for you. Hang on to your crown, and buckle up – this is going to get ridiculous real fast.
Ludicrously over the top, out of control, and pure dirty royal fantasy. As with all my books, this one is safe, with no cheating, and a HEA guaranteed.

This novella was hot, hot, HOT. I can tell already, each one of these books is going to be sweeter and dirtier than the last. And I cannot wait!! (Especially because Daddy Duke is next and the sneak peak of a scene was sooooooooooo good!! I need it now!!)

Sven was made king when he was young, at only ten years old, when after he lost his parents. He’s content with his life, until he meets the beautiful duchess scratching a phallic image (it’s a dick) on his classic Rolls Royce… that he restored himself.

Riley is spiraling. She’s always been known as the free spirit, the wild one, of the friends. Not only is she not good enough for her parents, her parents have arranged a marriage for her with a prince, both to elevate her station and settle her down. Which she wants none of. While everyone is telling her to settle down, Sven tries to rile her up.

I loved their scenes together, both the dirty and the sweet. Madison Faye always has a balance between crazy alphas that are obsessed with breeding their women and don’t care what anyone else says, and accepting their women for who they are, while also pushing them to be everything they ever wanted. The sweet scenes are mixed into the intimate ones, sometimes with rough, naughty sexy times, and others with slow love making… ok just kidding even when they “make love” its super dirty. But hey, it’s erotica. (By the way- I love pulling quotes from erotica to make teasers; and then when I go back it’s during some crazy sex scene *side eye/smile emoji*)

Anyway, this book, and probably this series, is totally 5 star worthy!! Go get your copy now since it’s live!!
