Welcome to Paranormal Romance Week Day 2!
Today I am spotlighting the talented K. F. Breene. Now, KF is not a dedicated PNR author, so if that isn’t your genre of choice, you still want to check out the link to her website at the bottom for Contemporary Romances that rock 🙂
Yesterday I listed each book, well, if I did that for KF this post would be 12 miles long. Seriously, this chick puts books out like crazy! So instead, I am going to give you my thoughts on the series that I have read, the synopsis for each series, the links for each book, and links for reviews if I’ve posted them on the blog.
The Darkness Series
I was introduced to Stephan and Sasha after finding Into The Darkness on a freebie list for Amazon. It was a super easy one-click for me; it was free, the cover was hot, and it was PNR. Sold!
Here is the Synopsis for Into the Darkness:
Sasha has grown up with one surety: she’s not normal. She sees things in the darkness that no one else can see. Mysterious men cloaked in shadow, moving through the night. The problem is, pointing out invisible people is a fast track to a padded cell. Orphaned at age five, Sasha quickly learns an important survival tip: keep her mouth shut and stay out of the spotlight. Until one night, everything changes. She and her boyfriend, Jared, find themselves stranded on the wrong side of town. Suddenly, the men she was convinced were hallucinations, are very real. And very dangerous. As a new world opens up around her, she meets him. The Boss. An alpha leader who entrances her mind and tugs on her body. Primal and sexual, his people have a different set of rules. And they don’t always play nice. As danger rises up around her, her differences may be the only thing that saves her life. She must embrace what she’s tried so hard to hide, while resisting the person her body craves most. Sasha has finally found her shadow men, and they will change her life forever.
I have to tell you, this book will suck you in, chew you up, and then spit you out – all while you are begging for more. Each book delves deeper and deeper into this erotic world, so make sure you have an extra pair (or two) of panties while reading. The Darkness Series is also filled with humor, kickass women and a supporting cast that will rock your socks.
The Warrior Chronicles
An unfinished series, yes, but so damn good. I actually liked this better than The Darkness Series. There is a lot less romance here; it’s more of a thread in the background, so the focus is more on the journey that Shanti and Cayan (the main characters) go on. WC gives multiple character points of view, giving the read such an amazing view of what is going on that you cannot help but embrace everyone involved… Well, at least the good guys.
The setting, the character development and the plot are exactly what make for good Paranormal/Fantasy books, so if you are new to KF, I would start here.
It is said that when war threatens the world, one individual will be selected by prophecy to lead the Shadow Warriors out of the Land of Mist and reclaim the freedom which has been stolen.
Shanti has grown up under the constant threat of war. Since she helped her people defeat a raiding party by using a special power, she’s been a hunted woman. Carrying rare abilities and an uncanny fighting aptitude, Shanti is the only hope of salvation for her people. The problem is, she doesn’t believe in her own divinity, and when she flounders, she nearly fails in the duty hanging so heavy on her shoulders.
It seems like any other day when Sanders and his band of misfit boys find a foreign woman clinging to life in the wastelands. Oblivious to the weapon they now have in their possession, they are content to harbor the mysterious woman until she is well enough to continue her journey.
But when the war spreads its arms and lands on her borrowed doorstep, Shanti has no choice but to reveal her secrets, plunging her saviors into danger. If they band with her, they will face certain death. But to trade her to Xandre, the warlord desperate to add her to his war machine, would be to give up their entire way of life.
With a new Chosen coming forward, Shanti has lost sight of her duty. With her plans unraveling, she does the only thing she can think of– frees her brother and a mysterious stranger from a Graygual camp before heading back to beg for Cayan’s aid.
Unfortunately, that stranger was precious to the enemy, guarded by one of the elite. A Superior Officer known as the Hunter, this man always catches his prey, and his focus is now on the elusive, violet-eyed girl and the man she ripped from the his hands.
With danger mounting, and one of the best constantly on her heels, Shanti will learn that running will never be enough.
In order to finally claim her title of Chosen and lead the Shadow People out of the Land of Mist, Shanti must make it through a century’s old system to test her battle awareness, her fighting skill, and her ability to stay alive. She’s about to enter The Trials, and she must do it alone.
Separated from Shanti on a dangerous island, Cayan must learn to use his mental skill while keeping his men safe from the people set out to kill them. But as more Inkna and Graygual flood the island, Cayan hears of a sinister force deep in the woods, rigging The Trials and killing any who venture too close.
It is now a race against time. The battle to become the Chosen has begun, and the victor is anything but decided.
