About The Author 



Before writing steamy romantic comedy novels, Kayley Loring got a BFA in creative writing from a Canadian university and had a fifteen-year career as a screenwriter in Los Angeles (under a different name).  She mostly wrote PG-13 family comedies that studios would pay her lots of money for and then never make into movies. In 2017 she decided to move to the Pacific
Northwest and write about all the fun stuff that she wasn't allowed to write about in those PG-13 scripts. Now she’s breathing cleaner air and writing dirtier words. It’s an adjustment she’s happily getting used to.

HUGE PROJECT ANNOUNCEMENT by K. Loriane

Posted on Sep 16, 2020 with No comments


They’ll give their queen everything,
all she has to do is ask.



Their Shadow Queen Series

Tempted By Their Queen (bk 1)
and 
All The Queen’s Men (bk 2)

Blurb:

My entire life has been a lie.

I thought I was a normal girl, a typical college student. Until Finn and Jensen, two of the most handsome men I've ever met change my entire world.

Literally.

On my twenty-first birthday, a single kiss from Finn transports the three of us to the Shadow Court. A realm of the fae. Because I'm not human. Not even a little. Turns out, I'm a faerie. The Shadow Court's long-lost queen, to be exact, and I have to take my crown.

It should be easy, but there are rules and customs I need to follow, powers I have to unlock, and a prince I'm supposed to marry.

Unfortunately, there are also plenty of creatures who don't want me to succeed and will stop at nothing to see me dead.

With my guards, Finn and Jensen at my side, I'm ready for anything. Except for my growing attraction to the men I surround myself with. They say they're tempted by me, but I want them just as much, and I don't think I can resist.

Excerpt



CHAPTER 1

~Holden~

 

Third and fifteen. That holding penalty had royally screwed us, but we had this. This was it. One more play would determine whether we moved on to the divisional playoffs or went home. It would solidify if I would realize my dream of ending my career on a high note in the championship. There was no time for a huddle, and that was fine. We ran our hurry-up offense more than any other, and the guys knew my cadence and were familiar with my calls.

Sweat dripped down my back, the adrenaline pumping through my veins. I approached the line, saw my guys in their stances, rock-steady, and ready to protect me. We were going with the ten personnel package: four receivers—spread wide—one running back, and no tight ends. Unfortunately, we’d lose their epic blocking, yet, hopefully, it’d throw off the defense and confuse them about who should be double covered. Especially since my hope was to have Jameson, my running back, run a draw when I dropped back into shotgun.

I crowded the center, started the call. Motioning for my slot receiver to shift, I glanced at Jameson to move back a step, and then took up my position in the pistol formation.

“Blue, forty-two! Blue, forty-two!” I checked the defense to make sure nobody had shifted or was eyeing where we hoped to go with this. I saw that my skill players were right where they needed to be, my offensive lineman loose, yet coiled with anticipation. My heart raced with both excitement and exertion. We had this. It was ours for the taking. After nearly twenty years in the league, I could be headed to the big dance once more.

I clapped twice to signal the snap, called “Hut,” and caught the ball as it came sailing toward me. I shifted and gripped it, laces kissing my knuckles. I did my two-step drop and looked at my wideouts, knowing I wouldn’t be going there. As expected, coverage was great, and the rush was coming, way too many three-hundred-plus-pound bruisers wanting a piece of me. I had a second—my line was holding their own—and I saw Jameson juke his cover guy and come my way.

Excellent.

Faking the pass, I pitched to Jameson just as a linebacker broke free of his cover man and barreled my way. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Jameson execute a perfect spin move and head down the sideline, just as number fifty nailed me with the full weight of his massive form and the power of a locomotive.

I went down hard, the air whooshing out of my lungs as I absorbed the full force of the behemoth on top of me.

And then…

The snap, or pop—maybe both. I couldn’t even tell where it came from exactly, but the entire right side of my body felt like a ball of agony.

The excruciating pain brought bile to my throat and spots to my eyes.

Before I had a chance to fully register what had happened, Quiddich got off me with an extra shove, making me want to vomit, and I heard the roar of the crowd.

Apparently, we’d scored. It was a game-changer for the team, a season-changer, and I tried to feel the euphoria. Unfortunately, I had a sinking suspicion that my football life as I knew it was over. This play was literally life-changing for me.

And that was the last thing I thought before everything went black.

They are a dangerous duke, a fierce lord, and an infamous earl—dark, bold, brave men who know exactly what they want. And there is only one woman who can bring them to their knees...

He is first and foremost—at everything. A man who's made his own way in the world through ruthless cunning and sheer force of will. A strong and imposing Scot who can turn on the charm but does not suffer fools. His title: Lord Chief Justice of the High Court. His name: Cassius Gerard Ramsay. His mission: To investigate the goings-on at London's most notorious gaming hell, owned and operated by one of the most intriguing and desirable women he's ever met.

IN THIS GAME OF LOVE, THE RULES DO NOT APPLY

Cecelia Teague was an orphan facing a rather dire future—until a secret benefactor from her mother's scandalous past swept into her life. Sent to prestigious boarding school and later to university, Cecelia believed high society was at her fingertips...Then, from out of nowhere, she became the inheritor of a gambling establishment. Now Cecelia must live two lives: one as a proper lady who finds herself undeniably drawn to Lord Ramsay and the other as a savvy gaming hell owner trying to save her business from the very same man. He has no idea she is both women...and Cecelia would like to keep it that way. But what happens when consuming passion and escalating danger threaten to reveal the truth?

Evil comes in all forms… and sometimes it wears a human mask.

When the body of a newlywed is discovered on the reservation, Lizzie Grace throws herself into the investigation, needing a distraction from what she fears is coming not only for her but also Belle—her best friend and witch familiar.

But as the body count grows and a desperate race begins to track down a supernatural entity capable of powerful magic, it becomes evident another deadly game has begun—one they may not win.

Because the past—and the man—they ran from thirteen years ago has finally caught up with them.

And he’s out for revenge…

4 STARS 


Lizzie Grace is wonderful!!! I've become so vested in these characters. You never know what Arthur has in store for her characters. This time around she sends us in search of a frightful creature with mysterious powers that has left Lizzie and her crew perplexed. Lizzie and the Belle will finally come face to face with their tortured past. Deadly Vows is packed with revelations and strong undercurrents of what's to come. The sexy Aidan has me at my wit's end. Will he ever tell Lizzie how he feels! The Lizzie Grace series is a sensational series filled with magic and mystery. Deadly Vows is a fantastic addition to the series and a must-read! Visit Keri Arthur for a slew of amazing books! I'm patiently waiting for the next book in The Witch King's Crown series!

Posted on Jun 26, 2020 with No comments


A case of secret identities finds reunited lovers on opposite sides of the law in this fun, flirty Regency romance.


There's only one case Bow Street agent Alex Harland, Earl of Melton, hasn't cracked: the identity of the mysterious woman who stole a kiss from him before he left for war. He's neither forgotten--nor forgiven--her for leaving him wanting. When he starts investigating the Nightjar, an elusive London jewel thief, he keeps running into the alluring Emmy Danvers, who stirs feelings he hasn't felt in years.

Even though Emmy's loved Alex for years, she can't risk revealing her heart, or her identity as the Nightjar. With Alex on her case, Emmy knows that her secrets are in danger of being discovered. Their cat and mouse game heats up with every interaction, but when Emmy's reputation--and life--is at risk, will Alex realize that some rules are made to be broken for love?

4.5 STARS

 

     To Catch an Earl is captivating! From the moment Emmy steals that kiss, I knew I was in for a ride! Emmy's daring nature and undaunting need to play with fire had me turning the pages. This is an exciting read! As Alex begins to unravel the lovely Emmy, things take a turn for the worse. Alex and Emmy are the perfect match. The entire story is filled with clever and witty dialogue. To Catch an Earl transported me in time and I loved every minute of it. Bateman delivers an array of bold characters in this great romance. Following along with the Nightjar and her associates, as they planned and executed their heists, was titillating. I can not wait to read the next book in the series!
