A Letter From an Author
 
Dear Fabulous Reader,
Chances are, you don’t know me. You probably have never heard of me or my books. But I’m sure the cover has intrigued you somewhat, and so here you are, reading a letter from an author you know nothing about, and probably care nothing about. But that’s okay. I’m here to introduce myself.
My name is Kristin Smith, and I’m the author of Catalyst and its sequel Forgotten. To start off, there’s one thing you need to know. I always dreamed of having a book baby, of holding it and flipping through its pages. But nothing can prepare an author for the thrill of people loving their work. For readers reaching out and declaring that the Deception Game is their new favorite series. It’s like a Hallelujah Moment with angels singing in the background. It’s seriously the coolest thing ever.
But on the flip side, I know some people aren’t going to love it. Maybe the ending isn’t for them, or they’re not excited about the love interest (I haven’t heard that one yet, but you never know!). Whatever it is, it all comes down to one thing—publishing is subjective. I may love one book and you may despise it. Every time we read a novel, we are bringing all of our own “baggage” to the table. Certain things we’ve experienced can be like triggers, causing us to have different reactions based off our different experiences. And you know what the great thing is? We’re all entitled to our opinion. We can CHOOSE what we like and what we love and even what we hate.
When I first set out to write Catalyst, I had no idea I’d end up here. I mean, I’d hoped this would be “the one,” but there was no guarantee. Once it was finished, though, I knew I had something pretty amazing. And like an uncut gemstone, I polished and polished that baby until it shone. Am I proud of what I’ve created? Yeah, I think I am. Do I think everyone should read it? Of course! It’s a great story!
But then again, I AM a little biased. 🙂
                XOXO

The Sheikh’s Forced Bride By Leslie North – A Review

The Sheikh’s Forced Bride By Leslie North – A Review

I hope you guys had a wonderful and romantic Valentine’s Day. I spent my evening reading some steamy romances, one of which I wanted to share with you today.

romance novel, new release, Leslie North, booksI am so glad I have not given up on Leslie North, after the last series. With The Sheikh’s Forced Bride she is back to her best self, writing a strong romance novel, that has everything you want for a quick read.

I love both main characters, Khalid and Casey are headstrong people from different background, who still have a lot to learn about life, and about themselves. They empower each other in an unexpected way, even if their connection is first a connection of convenience.

What I also really enjoyed are the minor characters, where I can see more stories emerging shortly. Of course, this will happen, as it is the first book in Leslie’s new series, and I am looking forward to seeing what each of them will have to deal with.

I think this is a wonderful Valentine’s day read, perfect to cuddle up on the couch with a glass of wine, and a couple of candles.

This novel is available on Amazon now! 

Book Rating:

5 out of 5 stars!

Warning: This book is not a clean novel!

Book Summary:

Sheikh Khalid Al-Qasimi’s playboy ways have finally caught up with him. After creating a scandal during a diplomatic visit to America, Khalid is given a choice by his father—marry or face banishment. Rather than lose his family, Khalid bows to his father’s wishes but an outspoken American interrupts Khalid’s would-be wedding. Now Khalid has a new plan that might please his father, secure his inheritance and leave Khalid still able to go on with his life …he’ll take the beautiful American as his bride—and then his father will hate her so much he’ll beg Khalid not to get married after all.

Journalist Casey Connolly has never been afraid to share her opinions. While researching an article on arranged marriages, she lands in trouble when she crashes a royal wedding to get a quote from the attending American guests.. The sexy groom offers to set her free if she’ll step into the role of his fiancée—just for a short time. Seeing a chance to get the scoop she needs, Casey agrees.

Soon there’s no denying the chemistry they share. But Casey’s boss is pushing her to complete her piece and head back to the States, while Khalid’s father is still pushing for a hasty wedding. Will this pseudo-romance become the real thing or buckle under all the pressure being put on these two?
