Souls Astray by Kellyn Roth

Title: Souls Astray
Series: Kees & Colliers #1
Author: Kellyn Roth
Genre: Historical Women’s Fiction/Teen & Adult
Release Date: April 5, 2022

Adele has been lost for a long time now …

Adele Collier has sought a carefree lifestyle ever since her tragic childhood. Determined to never allow anyone or anything to control her life or emotions again, she consistently seeks distraction in gaiety. But shaking her ghosts isn’t as easy as she’d like.

Troy Kee has been alone in the world since the Great War took his parents and left him in charge of his younger sister. When she marries, he’s left to seek after his goal of a healthy, complete family. But how can he focus on his dream when trouble plagues his family vineyard?

When Adele and Troy meet, a whirlwind romance begins—but can two lost souls have a healthy relationship?

“Papa and Louis will be here soon,” Adele said, breaking the comfortable silence that had fallen between them.

“I know.” Kenneth stared off up the creek, eyes half-shuttered. “Good to have them here at the same time as me, I guess.”

Adele cocked her head. “You guess?”

“Yes. I guess.” He ruffled her hair again, and she swatted his hand away.

“But why aren’t you sure? Don’t you want to see Louis and Papa?” she asked.

He sighed and ran a hand over his face. “Yes, Della-bell. I want to see Louis and Father. But at the same time, I don’t.” He cocked his head. “When I was in London with a few schoolmates, we met a group of women on the streets. They gave me this.” Kenneth handed her the flowers again, reached into his well-cut jacket, and pulled something out of the inside pocket. He extended it to Adele.

Wonderingly, Adele accepted the object from her brother and twirled it in her fingers. “What is it?”

“A white feather.”

“I know that.” Adele laughed nervously. She sensed something strange in the air between them, something she couldn’t quite pin down. “But why do you have it?” She hesitated. “Is it … a present for me?” Sometimes Kenneth brought her things home from London, but usually they made sense. Like a new doll or sweets or ribbons—one could never have enough ribbons.

He chuckled, the sound grinding on her ears oddly. “No, Della-bell. Not a present.” He took the feather back from her and tucked it into his coat pocket again. “How old would you say I look, Della-bell?”

“You’re seventeen.” Honestly, Kenneth asked the silliest questions sometimes!

“No, but … what age do I look to you? Could I pass for eighteen? Nineteen? Twenty?”

Adele looked up at her big brother’s frowning face, then regarded his long legs and broad shoulders. “Nineteen, but not twenty,” she said at last.

“That’s what they thought in London. That I was a man.” He clenched his teeth. “And, really, seventeen is a man, I think.”

She was cynical of this—though he was much older than she, he wasn’t quite a man yet—and shrugged her shoulders. But if Kenneth said so.

“You see, Della-bell—” He patted his pocket, but his face quickly turned to a scowl. “Oh, never mind. Let’s go back to the house.” All the sunshine had gone out of his face and voice. Adele stepped to his side and took his hand, allowing her bouquet to fall to the ground unheeded.

“Are you all right, Kenny?”

“Yes, I’m quite all right.” He sighed. “Come now. It’s almost time for tea.”

“No, it’s not. It’s hardly two.”

“Well, anyway, I have some reading to do before the holiday’s over.”

Adele wrapped her fingers tighter around her brother’s hand. “What is it, Kenny? Can you tell me? I can keep a secret. I promise.”

Kenneth hesitated, staring at her face, then knelt in front of her and put his hands on her shoulders. “Della-bell, you know how the first thing Louis did when the war started was sign up?”

“Well, he was going to be in the army, anyway,” Adele said. Like his father before him, Louis Collier was strictly military. Unlike her precious Kenneth. Kenneth was going to be something grand, she was sure—a doctor or lawyer or Prime Minister.

“Yes, but …” Kenneth’s words trailed off. “Della-bell, I want to join up.”

Adele wrinkled her nose. “Join the war, you mean?” That didn’t make sense. “I thought you were going to go to college.”

“Yes, but … everyone else … everyone else is joining up. My older schoolmates are planning on it.” He shrugged.

“But that doesn’t mean you should.” Something like panic tightened in Adele’s chest. He couldn’t join the army. He was her Kenneth. He belonged to her, and she couldn’t let anyone who belonged to her go off to France where, well, anything could happen.

One couldn’t live anywhere in England now and avoid hearing about someone’s son or brother or husband dying. It was dangerous over there, and therefore not a place for Adele’s big brother to go. Ever.

Louis and Papa were different. That was their job. Her father, Papa, had been going off to strange faraway places all her life, and Louis had started doing that, too.

But Kenneth was precious. Kenneth was hers. The only person who really belonged to Adele all the way. No one else loved her like Kenneth did.

“Yes, but …” Kenneth sighed. “I think it’s rather my duty to join up.”

“I don’t think so. Besides, you can’t until next year.”

Kenneth’s hand was in his pocket again. She knew he was fingering the feather. “I could forge documents. I was raised in a military home—I know what they will want from me and how to get it faked.”

“But you could go to prison for that!” Adele exclaimed. “Besides, Mother wouldn’t like it.”

“Yes, she wouldn’t like it. But if I were to do this, I’d be rather beyond what Mother would like.” His hand dropped to his side. “I feel as if … as if I want to do something useful. Like Father and Louis.”

Adele could understand feeling useless, but that wasn’t any reason to run off and join the army. “But why?”

“Because … it’s difficult to explain, Della-bell. You wouldn’t understand.”

Adele’s brow wrinkled. “But I love you. I don’t want you to get hurt.”

Kenneth chuckled and squeezed her shoulder. “I love you, too. But I need to go. Can’t you see? This would … this would make me as capable and strong and brave as Louis—or even Father. And that’d be … that’d be everything I ever wanted.”

“But what about me?”

He grinned down at her. “What about you?”

“What … what will I do while you’re gone?” she asked. She couldn’t put it into words, quite, but Kenneth was her best friend. She loved her parents and Louis, but Kenneth was different. He was so important, so much a part of her life.

“What you do when I’m here, I imagine, only without me. You’ll be fine.” Kenneth turned back toward the house, and Adele followed him.

She didn’t know what to say. Nor what she could do to deter him.

“You can be brave, too, Della-bell.” A smile quirked about the edges of his lips. “You can keep the homefires burning.”

Adele scowled. “I don’t want to.”

“Well, you’ve got to, so there you go.” He glanced at her. “And, er, don’t tell Mother.”

“Why? What are you going to do?”

“Go a few towns over and join the army.” He reached over and tugged at a lock of her hair. “Not until Father and Louis leave, though. So don’t worry about that. I’ll wait until they’re gone to make my exit.”

“All right,” Adele said after a moment. “I won’t tell Mother. But you have to promise to be very safe and come home.”

“Of course, of course. How could I not when my Della-bell is waiting for me?” he teased.

Adele beamed. Kenneth didn’t seem worried at all. Everything would be just fine.

Decoding Adelaide by Ann-Marie Davis


Release Date: April 5th

Tropes: 🖤 Age-Gap 🖤 Hacker 🖤 Insta-lust 🖤 Alpha Hero


Jake Murray excited me.

He drew me away from my computer and taught me how to experience the world away from my screen.
He showed me there was more to life than just hacking and gaming.

But I betrayed him.

Now, he’s searching for answers, and I’ll do anything to make sure he doesn’t find them, no matter the cost.

And that may be a price I never expected to pay.

I loved the story so much, and I found Adelaide’s character so pleasant and well developed. The story is a classic of nice, lovely, kind, shy woman and the bad-boy, rich type of man Vlad

Decoding Adelaide is an engrossing blend of vehement chemistry, an alpha hero, a sassy heroine, witty banter, feels, and steam. Unequivocally my new favorite by Davis. – BookBoyfriendAndHusbandMake3

Amazon’s International #1 Best Seller in Gothic Romance I have an awesome husband, three kids, and two dogs. I swear uncomfortably too much, speak sarcasm as if it’s my first language, and love to shock people for the reaction. Mainly because I need a good laugh. I love to make people laugh. Crazy, right? The dark romance author should be writing rom coms, not murdering and maiming people. If I don’t start my day with creamer and a splash of coffee, lives *will* be taken. When I’m not writing, I’m dreaming up new stories, hiking or camping with my family, or going on road trips. I contribute my sass to being raised by two Marines and a driller that could match my attitude and then some.

Savage Princess by Jennilynn Wyer

Title: Savage Princess
Series: Savage Kingdom #1
Author: Jennilynn Wyer
Genre: Dark Reverse Harem Romance
Release Date: April 5, 2022


One strong-willed woman set on revenge.
Three childhood friends who are now her enemies.
Get ready for Alexandria to create chaos.

My name is Alexandria Donatella McCarthy, daughter of the don of the Rossi syndicate. Abused. Neglected. Underestimated. I’m about to unleash hell on this town. Keane Agosti, Rafael Ortiz, and Jaxson West don’t know it yet, but I am the devil who will bring that hell to their doorsteps—and take my father down right along with them.

I was born into a life that showed me nothing but pain. A toy, a pawn, to be used by my father, Maximillian Rossi. My brother, Kellan, was the only bright light in my dark world. Then one day, he was gone. Taken from me. And it’s their fault. My brother’s three best friends. Keane, the leader of the group whose quest for power will be his undoing. Jax, the twisted psycho who lost his soul a long time ago. And Rafe, my ex-boyfriend who shattered my heart and left me when I needed him the most.

Now it’s my turn to descend into the darkness. I will destroy them all, burn the Rossi house to the ground, and then rise from the ashes.

Are you ready for me, boys? This savage princess is coming for you.

Reader’s Note: Savage Princess is a dark, enemies to lovers, mafia, reverse harem romance and contains scenes that may be triggering to sensitive individuals such as blood, violence, scenes depicting torture, foul language, consensual sexual content, and references to past sexual abuse/trauma. If you are not familiar with reverse harem romances, this trope is where the female protagonist has more than one love interest and is in an intimate relationship with more than one man. Savage Princess is book 1 in the Savage Kingdom three-book series and ends with a cliffhanger. Recommended for mature readers.

We walk through a den area and down another hallway. Rafe opens a set of double doors to reveal a full gym equipped with various weights, workout benches, and two treadmills. Keane and Jax are sparring in the middle of a standard square-circle, or boxing ring, set up in the center of the expansive space. The ceilings are over two stories high; a gigantic metal fan mounted to an overhead beam lazily spins to help circulate the air.
I stop to watch Keane and Jax, and I have to admit, I’m impressed. They are not holding back or pulling their punches. Each hit, every kick, is precise, brutal, and savage. Sweat glistens on their bare chests and soaks their hair. Blood drips down from a cut on Keane’s brow, coating one side of his face and turning his pretty-boy looks into something lethal. Jax is leaner than his opponent, but no less packed with defined muscle.
With their shirts off, I’m able to catalog many of the tattoos I’ve only gotten brief hints or glimpses of. Circling one another in the ring, the images on their torsos blend together, a swirling kaleidoscope of fractals made of four colors. Keane’s ink is all bold blues, grays, and blacks; whereas, Jax’s are more vibrant—bright red pops of color among the dark, coal black of the images. From where I’m standing, I can’t make out individual pictures, except one, and both of the men have it inked on their backs: a gorgeous, unearthly phoenix rising from the flames of hell, its wings outstretched. Gripped in the phoenix’s claws are the words, “DEATH IS ONLY THE BEGINNING,” written in bold, block letters. They are the same words that are written in script on the wall of Rafe’s room.
“Did you design that?” I ask Rafe.
His full lips part slightly. “How did you know?”
“I snooped in your room,” I reply honestly. “Didn’t Keane tell you?” I say, throwing his friend under the bus.
“No.” Those kissable lips press together as his focus lands on Keane in the ring.
Keane is circling Jax, trying to anticipate his next move. Jax drops his guard just a fraction, and I know he made a huge mistake. Keane strikes out fast and swift with his left fist, but Jax is quick enough to deflect it, delivering a kidney blow to Keane’s right side with his knee. I feel like I’m watching a lion battle a panther. I’m tempted to ask Rafe to grab us some popcorn, so we can sit back and watch the show.
Jax gets momentarily distracted when he spots me in his peripheral vision, but it’s enough for Keane to gain advantage, sending Jax to the mat with an uppercut and sweeping his legs out from under him.
Fuck!” Jax loudly gripes and smacks away the proffered hand Keane holds out to help him up.
Keane reaches for a towel from a top rope and wipes the blood from his face. “Enjoy the show, princess?”
“Very much, thank you,” I muse. “The best part was seeing Jax kick your ass. Oh, and you missed a spot,” I remark with as much sarcasm as possible, using his own words he said to me a half hour ago.
I indicate with my hand where there’s still blood on his cheek.
A sharp bark of laughter emits from Keane, and I stare at him, dumbfounded. He never laughs. Ever. Or he used to never laugh. Not one that’s real anyway. It totally transforms his face, making a set of dimples pop out and his eyes sparkle. Jesus Christ, I need a lobotomy.
Jax slips through the ropes and goes over to one of the treadmills, ignoring me completely. He’s not wearing his glasses, and for some reason, I don’t like that.
“Anytime, Tinker Bell,” Keane states from the ring, leaning forward on the ropes, looking bored.
My head snaps from Jax to him. I swear the guy lives to get a rise out of me. My eyes flash a warning of indigo ire.
“Call me Tinker Bell one more time and Rafe will be carrying your unconscious ass out of here.”
One dark eyebrow raises with interest. “Rafe, get her hands wrapped. Let’s see if she can deliver what she so recklessly proclaims.”
Like the obedient manservant he is, Rafe does as he’s told without question. Just like he did when my father commanded that he was never to see me again after finding us together in bed. My father had his men tie Rafe up to a chair and forced him to watch as I was degraded and beaten in front of him with my father’s belt, until strips of skin ripped off my back and buttocks, and I passed out from the pain. When I woke up, I was alone in my room, naked and sticky with dried blood. Rafe broke up with me the following day over a fucking text message. I never forgave him for not fighting harder for me. He should have spat in my father’s face. Defied him. Loved me enough to walk away and take me with him. But he didn’t.
Kellan turned rabid when he found me the next afternoon after I failed to come down for breakfast and lunch. The following week, I was hauled onto a plane with my mother, heading for Europe. A part of me has wondered if Kellan was the reason I was sent away. I hope so. It would mean he finally stood up for me and got me out of that house and away from our father’s abuse.
I try not to think about those bad times, but it’s hard to do, especially when they keep creeping up in my nightmares. If it wasn’t for Kellan, I probably would have killed myself long ago. I think that’s why I’m so desperate to be with my brother now. He was the only good thing, the only bright light, in my dark, lonely world. At one time, I thought Rafe was too. How wrong I was.
Rafe finishes taping my hands. I flex my fingers and make tight fists, testing out his handiwork. Then I look my ex in the eye, still caught up in my horrid past.
“I never did tell you,” I say in a hushed tone.
He leans in slightly, the smell of his heated skin enticing. “What’s that?”
“I hate your fucking guts.”
