Reds Review:

I don’t read paranormal. I’m not a fan of the fantasy, unrealistic world in many of the PNR I have tried to read previously. The One is not set in the fantastical world. It is written in the modern world with a believable story. Vampires that hide among us mortals.
I love this story. I guess I can’t say I don’t like or read PNR anymore. I now have a PNR style I like and this is it.

The One grabbed my attention the minute I saw the cover. The story within the pages kept me up all night.

Book CoverSebastian is everything I want in a book boyfriend. Sexy, funny, protective and oh btw, a blood sucking vampire. The sex is blazing hot. A must have in my romance books.

Adriel’s has a strong personality . She has a lot going on yet she doesn’t cower away. I’m anxious to learn more about her and how she will fit into the vampire world with Sebastian.

As is Zane Michaelson’s style, he left me wanting more and will keep me waiting a month or so for answers. It’s not a frustrating cliffhanger and thankfully he never makes his fans wait too long.
As they say ‘Anything worth having is worth waiting for’
Well, I’m waiting…..

If you believe you don’t like paranormal, as I did, I highly recommend you give this story a try. It might change your mind too.

——
Zane Michaelson continues to amaze me by writing different genres within the romance world. The One highlights his versatility and ability to conquer any genre he wishes to explore. As a fan of his writing, he has unknowingly coaxed me out of my reading comfort zone with each new sub genre he writes.

THE ONE

by Zane Michaelson

For over three hundred years, Sebastian Fernández has meandered through his immortal life, taking blood as and when he needs to.

To kill a human being is forbidden by the Vampyre Council-the sentence for disobedience swift and final.

One day, while admiring a small silver cross inside an antique store, he meets its proprietor, Adriel Zilkha.

There is something about her that draws him in.

Adriel is no ordinary human female and embodies gifts she cannot explain.

Shocked, Sebastian knows law demands he inform the Vampyre Council of his discovery. The price for treachery is to die by sunlight.

Loathe to sentence the beautiful and mysterious Adriel to certain death, he calls on his old friend and sire, Sienna, for help.

They say your first kiss should be earned.

Mine was stolen by a devil in a masquerade mask under the black Chicago sky.

They say the vows you take on your wedding day are sacred.

Mine were broken before we left church.

They say your heart only beats for one man.

Mine split and bled for two rivals who fought for it until the bitter end.

I was promised to Angelo Bandini, the heir to one of the most powerful families in the Chicago Outfit.

Then taken by Senator Wolfe Keaton, who held my father’s sins over his head to force me into marriage.

They say that all great love stories have a happy ending.

I, Francesca Rossi, found myself erasing and rewriting mine until the very last chapter.

One kiss.

Two men.

Three lives.

Entwined together.

And somewhere between these two men, I had to find my forever.

Excerpt
“Are you sure you’re on my card?” I turned to the man with a polite yet distant smile. I was still disoriented from the exchange with Angelo when the stranger pulled me against his hard body and pressed a possessive hand lower than socially acceptable on my back, a second from groping my butt.

“Answer me,” I hissed.

“My bid on your card was the highest,” he replied dryly.

“The bids are undisclosed. You don’t know how much other people have paid,” I kept my lips pursed to keep myself from yelling.

“I know it’s nowhere near the realm of what this dance is worth.”

Un-freaking-believable.

We began to waltz around the room as other couples were not only spinning and mingling but also stealing envious glances at us. Naked, raw ogles that told me that whomever the blonde he’d come to the masquerade with was, she wasn’t his wife. And that I might have been all the rage in The Outfit, but the rude man was in high demand, too.

I was stiff and cold in his arms, but he didn’t seem to notice—or mind. He knew how to waltz better than most men, but he was technical, and lacked warmth and Angelo’s playfulness.

“Nemesis.” He took me by surprise, his rapacious gaze stripping me bare. “Distributing glee and dealing misery. Seems at odds with the submissive girl who entertained Bishop and his horsey wife at the table.”

I choked on my own saliva. Did he just call the governor’s wife horsey? And me submissive? I looked away, ignoring the addictive scent of his cologne, and the way his marble body felt against mine.

“Nemesis is my spirit animal. She was the one to lure Narcissus to a pool where he saw his own reflection and died of vanity. Pride is a terrible illness.” I flashed him a taunting smirk.

“Some of us could use catching it.” He bared his straight white teeth.

“Arrogance is a disease. Compassion is the cure. Most gods didn’t like Nemesis, but that’s because she had a backbone.”

“Do you?” He arched a dark eyebrow.

“Do I…?” I blinked, the courteous grin on my face crumpling. He was even ruder when we were alone.

“Have a backbone,” he provided. He stared at me so boldly and intimately, it felt like he breathed fire into my soul. I wanted to step out of his touch and jump into a pool full of ice.

“Of course, I do,” I responded, my spine stiffening. “What’s with the manners? Were you raised by wild coyotes?”

“Give me an example,” he said, ignoring my quip. I was beginning to draw away from him, but he jerked me back into his arms. The glitzy ballroom distorted into a backdrop, and even though I was starting to notice that the man behind the demi-mask was unusually beautiful, the ugliness of his behavior was the only thing that stood out.

I am a warrior and a lady…and a sane person who can deal with this horrid man.

“I really like Angelo Bandini.” I dropped my voice, slicing my gaze from his eyes and toward the table where Angelo’s family had been seated. My father was sitting a few seats away, staring at us coldly, surrounded by Made Men who chatted away.

“And see, in my family, we have a tradition dating back ten generations. Prior to her wedding, a Rossi bride is to open a wooden chest—carved and made by a witch who lived in my ancestors’ Italian village—and read three notes written to her by the last Rossi girl to marry. It’s kind of a good luck charm mixed with a talisman and a bit of fortunetelling. I stole the chest tonight and opened one of the notes, all so I could rush fate. It said that tonight I was going to be kissed by the love of my life, and well…” I drew my lower lip into my mouth and sucked it, peering under my eyelashes at Angelo’s empty seat. The man stared at me stoically, as though I was a foreign film he couldn’t understand. “I’m going to kiss him tonight.”

“That’s your backbone?”

“When I have an ambition, I go for it.”

A conceited frown crinkled his mask, as if to say I was a complete and utter moron. I looked him straight in the eye. My father taught me that the best way to deal with men like him was to confront, not run. Because, this man? He’d chase.

Willow Olivia Walker is a newly single university student heading home for the summer holidays.

Initially dismayed to discover her parents have hired the beautiful Georgia as a live-in nanny for her two younger sisters, she treats her with contempt, but upon further reflection, finds a kindred spirit.

Discovered by her over-bearing mother in flagrante with Georgia, she packs her bags and returns to Cambridge, intent on spending the summer preparing for the academic year ahead.

Professor Francesca Marten is at a crossroads in her own life.

Married for twenty years and mother to two children, Francesca had buried a part of herself, deep inside, that is now fighting to come to the forefront.

A chance meeting between Willow and Francesca is the start of a relationship that extends beyond the confines of student and teacher.

In Francesca, Willow sees a lover who knows what she wants, but for Francesca, Willow is the epitome of the young, carefree girl she left behind twenty years ago.

Is their relationship a meeting of souls destined to be together, or is the thrill of forbidden love the only driving force?

RIDE OR DIE baby . . .

She’s my addiction. I need her. Even if I have to lie, cheat, steal, or kill.

But it may not be the past that we have to confront as the real sins of our fathers wreak havoc in Providence, CA where reality and fantasy collide.

Finding Melodie

by Laura Rossi

Amazon Global Link getbook.at/FndMel

Finding Melodie is a short story stole my heart from the first paragraph. Pixie is a girl after my own heart. Her inner monologue while helping “office guy” made me smile from ear to ear. Laura Rossi built up the relationship between these two in a captivating way. I was drawn into the story. I was left with a full heart just like my favorite fairytale with a princess who gets her prince charming. I look forward to reading more from this author.

Red’s Author Chit Chat with Kimberley O’Malley

Thanks Ms. Kimberley O’Malley for being a good sport and letting me test out my interviewing skills on you. Like I said the Redhead does things her way. I hope you and everyone reading learned a little bit about you and smiled a lot.

Hi Kim. I feel like we are old friends so I hope its ok to call you Kim. Thank you for agreeing to chat with me today. You are my first author interview so please be patient. Most of my members know that I am the crazy redhead with nothing but the best of intentions. With that said I have no idea what I am doing. I am just making it up as I go along.

Let’s get started. I see that you currently write contemporary but may branch out to other genres. That sounds like a lot of fun to stretch your creative mind.

So I am going through the interview form I asked you to fill out and I am blown away. When did you figure out time travel? I see you started writing in 2092. Is this a secret or can you share your travel plans with us? I would love to be able to see what the future holds, like get the lotto numbers and…..

Oh, that was a typo. I feel so silly. OK, So you started writing in 2002. Although that’s not quiet as exciting as the time travel spin it is still very interesting.

1) Do you have a favorite book that you have written?

Kim: Coming Home is my first and favorite because I wrote in 2002 while waiting to adopt our daughter from Russia. It saved my sanity.
2) How about a favorite character from your books?

Kim: I really like all my characters. They’re like my children in a way. I love Katie from Taking Chances. You would too. She’s a feisty red head!

A feisty red head? You are a genius.

3) Do you have a specific way you choose the characters names?

Kim: I use names that I like. Ones I hear and think I’ll use that…

Ever consider using Red??? Just asking for a friend. 

4) What is your favorite part of being a published author?

Kim: When a stranger tells me they’ve read my book. I write because I have stories to tell. The fact that someone not related to me chooses to read them? That blows my mind.

5) Where is the strangest place you had a book or character idea come to you?

Kim: Not so much a strange place as time. I’m wrapping up my first series this year and starting the next one in 2019. Then a friend mentioned wanting to write a cozy mystery…and I’m off!

6) I am sure you dont sit with a timer but if you had to guess how long does it take for you to write a book? 

Kim: Not really sure.. 15 years for the first one. I’m getting better! I’ve released 4 in 13 months!

You are on a roll! Go Kim! Go Kim!

7) Do you read your book reviews? How do you deal with bad or good ones?

Kim: I read everything, even though they say not to. They are what they are. I try to learn from bad ones. I treasure the good ones!!

8) What do you do what you suffer from writer’s block?

Kim: Hasn’t happened thankfully. My issue is more about never having enough time.

Crap, I hope I didn’t jinx you. No writers block, no writers block. There that should work. 

9) Which of your books do you wish more readers were aware of?

Kim: All. Of. Them! 

GREAT ANSWER. I WILL GET TO ALL OF YOUR BUY LINKS SOON!

10) Did you have a mentor when you started?

Kim: Yes’m the lovely Jeni Burns, who is now my editor.

Shout out to Jeni Burns!!!

11) What advice would you give an aspiring author?

Kim: Write the book! Don’t give into self-doubt. Just write it. Then spend the money wisely. Use an editor. Have a cover designed.

12) What can we expect from you in the future?

Kim: Book 5 in my series will be released this fall

The Crowd goes wild!!!!

13) Tell us something fun. Anything that can make us smile or giggle. Life is too short, lets spread some smiles around.

Kim: I’m obsessed with Candy Crush!

Ok, just a thought, if you are looking for some more time to write delete Candy Crush from your phone. I am just looking out for your fans that don’t want to wait for your new books. xoxo

Anything else you would like to share?

Kim: Thank you for this fabulous opportunity!!!

Thanks Ms. Kimberley O’Malley for being a good sport and letting me test out my interviewing skills on you. Like I said the Redhead does things her way. I hope you and everyone reading learned a little bit about you and smiled a lot.

~Red xoxo
