My first book spotlight on this blog happens to be for one of my favorite authors, Kathleen Brooks. A local Kentucky author, which I have had the pleasure of meeting, Kathleen’s novels are a must read. She is one of a very short list of authors that are on my instant pre-buy list. In fact, one of her series is running through my ears every day right now while I work – the Bluegrass Brothers. Yes, you heard me right I said series not novel. Technically, I read one novel at a time that is true, but as I have all of the novels available to date I tend to read in series. At the moment I have Rising Storm, Marshall and Katelyn’s story on my iPod but as I am five novels in on my latest re-read of this engaging series I say series.
Each of her female protagonists are strong, capable, intelligent women. In fact, in most of the women in her books are the type any woman would be lucky to count as friends, the men are the type that might just make the jaded have a little bit of faith that love really does exist and HOT enough I want to move.
The latest series, Women of Power, is all about women in a position of power in business. Well worth a read and give a chance to her other series as well. Chosen for Power, the first book in this series, is free on Amazon as of 1/18/2015. Note this series unlike most of Kathleen’s novels is one that in my experience it isn’t important to read in order.
I primarily read through Audible and am really looking forward to this series coming out that way in the next few months. I have the entire series so far on Kindle and have spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out Text to Speech function on my iPhone since my Kindle Paperwhite does not have that feature.
Allegra Simpson is the Vice President of Simpson Fashion and she’s always handled life like her mother taught her — with manners and a smile. But Allegra learns being nice can get you in trouble as someone haunts her from the shadows and turns her life to one of secrets. She fears she’ll never be able to have a relationship with Finn, because it would put everyone she loves in danger.
Finn Williams had a promising professional baseball career until an injury disrupted everything. But Finn wouldn’t let that stop him. He went to law school and started his own sports agency with the support of the Simpson family. The only thing missing was Allegra’s love. The chemistry between the two had been undeniable. But Finn knew there was something that Allegra is holding back from him. He just has to get her to trust him enough to tell him.
The man in the shadows is watching. He’s always watching. He knows Allegra’s every move. He’s been in her house, laid in her bed, and has plans to make her love him. She rejected him, but they are destined for each other. He’s seen her with Finn and knows this new man is no match for him. Soon she’ll come to see they are meant to be. Because if he can’t have her, then no one can.
