Mists of the Serengeti

Follow Leylah Attar


Once in Africa, I kissed a king…
“And just like that, in an old red barn at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, I discovered the elusive magic I had only ever glimpsed between the pages of great love stories. It fluttered around me like a newborn butterfly and settled in a corner of my heart. I held my breath, afraid to exhale for fear it would slip out, never to be found again.”
When a bomb explodes in a mall in East Africa, its aftershocks send two strangers on a collision course that neither one sees coming.
Jack Warden, a divorced coffee farmer in Tanzania, loses his only daughter. An ocean away, in the English countryside, Rodel Emerson loses her only sibling.
Two ordinary people, bound by a tragic afternoon, set out to achieve the extraordinary, as they make three stops to rescue three children across the vast plains of the Serengeti—children who are worth more dead than alive.
But even if they beat the odds, another challenge looms at the end of the line. Can they survive yet another loss—this time of a love that’s bound to slip through their fingers, like the mists that dissipate in the light of the sun?
“Sometimes you come across a rainbow story—one that spans your heart. You might not be able to grasp it or hold on to it, but you can never be sorry for the color and magic it brought.”
A blend of romance and women’s fiction, Mists of The Serengeti is inspired by true events and contains emotional triggers, including the death of a child. Not recommended for sensitive readers. Standalone, contemporary fiction.

My Review

5 Stars
Ahhh, reading a book written by Leylah Attar is so refreshing. The words flow flawlessly, taking you to places you can only dream about. Reading the words written on the pages of this book is like drinking a bottle of fine wine while drifting on your yacht in the middle of the ocean. Pure enjoyment at its best!
A very well thought out, planned and executed book that takes you on a journey where Rodel (Ro) meets Jack after they have both suffered from losing a loved one in a horrible event. The perfectly orchestrated story will lead you through sad times, funny laugh out loud times, horrible times but most of all, it leads you on a story that tells an even bigger one…if you just sit back and read…
To be honest, this is Leylah Attar’s best work. It’s a must read, sit back and enjoy the ride kind of book. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would!!
Because it all started with….
Once in Africa, I kissed a king….

Royal Scandal, a sexy all-new STANDALONE from Marquita Valentine is now LIVE!!!

Fairy tales do come true—and so do tabloid scandals! New York Times bestselling author Marquita Valentine kicks off a juicy contemporary romance series with a novel about a prince whose best-laid plans go deliciously awry when he marries the maid next door.
Forced to flee to the United States with his siblings after their parents’ assassination, Crown Prince Colin Sinclair takes it upon himself to become the caretaker of his family while hiding out near Charlotte, North Carolina. But after a decade in hiding, the secret’s out and Parliament demands that Colin wed a princess of their choosing. Unwilling to play their game, Colin decides to marry an American instead, and he has the perfect candidate in mind.

But when her best friend and secret crush reveals that he’s a flesh-and-blood prince, she doesn’t know what to think. Still, she’ll do anything for Colin, including becoming his wife—in name only, of course. But when their plans to stay purely platonic go by the wayside, their fake honeymoon turns all too real.

{Cover Reveal} WHEN SHE'S MINE ~ Dani Wyatt


Coming February 2nd

AP new - synopsis.jpg

Allister Marshall is no stranger to saving the down on their luck staff at the club he runs. But the day he walks into a locked basement dungeon and his eyes rest on the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen, this white knight is nearly brought to his knees. He’s a man’s man, but he’s kept his v-card waiting for ‘the one’, and now that he’s found her nothing will ever come between them.

Leah Morgan grew up cloaked in riches. Only she and her sister were kept locked away until a turn of events thrusts Leah out into the world where she’s a lamb primed for lions to pounce. When Allister saves her from the clutches of those sworn to care for her, she finds herself swept away by this monster of a man who is obsessed with making sure the rest of her life is filled with happiness and a few million orgasms.

Can this brute of a virgin man manage to overcome sweet Leah’s distrust of nearly everyone? When Leah once again disappears, Allister comes to grips with just how far he will go to bring home what is his. Only, will the forces at work to tear Leah from her first glimpse of true happiness be more than Allister can overcome?

If you want to lose yourself for a while with a happily ever after, no cheating and all wrapped up with an obsessed, alpha hero who will stop at nothing to make babies with his woman, then step inside, it’s steamy.

Title: Bet Me
Author: Lila Monroe
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: January 27, 2017


What happens when your sex strike goes viral -- and suddenly every man in town has their eye on your prize?

All I wanted was little old-fashioned romance. After a parade of Tinder disasters who think chivalry is giving me a pearl necklace on the first date, I made a pledge: until guys step up their game, this girl is off the market.

But one bottle of chardonnay later, and my drunken rant has gone viral. I’m the most famous person NOT having sex since the Jonas Brothers put on their purity rings. A men’s magazine has even put a bounty on my (ahem) maidenhead: fifty Gs to whoever makes me break the drought.

Be careful what you wish for...

Now my office looks like an explosion in a Hallmark factory, I’ve got guys lining up to sweep me off my feet - and the one man I want is most definitely off-limits. Jake Weston is a player through and through. He’s also the only one who sees through the mayhem to the real me, but how can I trust he’s not just out to claim the glory?

And how will I make it through the strike without scratching the itch - especially when that itch looks so damn good out of his suit?

The thrill of the chaste has never been so sexy in Lila Monroe’s hilarious, hot new romantic read!

Cash’s POV


It’s uttered so quietly, I assume she’s dreaming. Without turning to look at her, I take another step out of the room.


There is a desperate sound in her tone that seizes my heart and traps the air in my lungs. Turning back, I go to the side of the bed and crouch down, so I’m eye-level with her. Softly, I push the hair off her forehead and hold her gaze. All her defenses are down. If a person’s eyes are windows to their soul, I feel like I’m seeing into the depths of her. Seeing all the broken pieces.

“All right, baby girl, I’ll stay.”

Perfect Strangers
By: Abby Gale
Release Date: January, 27th
Hosted By Chance Promotions


Perfect Stranger Abby Gale Ecover.jpg

How did my life get so complicated? Going to my ex-boyfriend’s party seemed like a good idea to prove I moved on. And that’s where I saw him –the stranger with the perfect amount of cocksure promises. So I took everything he offered, every delicious inch. It’s just that I wasn’t completely aware of the entire package.

How did my life get so perfect? Sure, I’m a complete package and I know how to use my assets. I’m never lonely and the ladies drop to their knees for a night with me. I know what you’re thinking –I’m a manwhore, well, you’re right, but I’m always honest with my one night stands - there’s never an encore But now I must get my game on because there's much more at stake than I could have imagined.

For one night, we surrendered to our desires and it was sublime. But then our worlds unexpectedly collided once again. What are the odds?


“Wait… I don’t even know your name,” I panted.
He gave me a lopsided grin before licking his bottom lip in a hypnotizing way. Finally, he rewarded me with an answer: “My name depends on who you are.”
“What does that mean?”
“Women generally call me God,” he started before adding fake woman moan, “Oh God, please let me come. Oh God, yes… right there.”
I tried to stop my laugh, rolling my eyes instead, “What about men? What do they call you?”
“Bastard, asshole… you name it,” he shrugged.
“You’re confusing me,” I started, smiling at him to let him know I was teasing. “What should I call you if I agree to go with you?” I added.
“When you agree to leave this club with me you can call me ‘stranger’ till I become your God,” he whispered into my ear before peppering kisses on the sensitive skin under my ear.
I nodded my head, letting him guide me toward the exit.

{Book Review} CROWN OF LIES ~ Pepper Winters





I met the boy I wanted. But then he vanished and a new man claimed me instead. My father approved, my colleagues congratulated, and behind closed doors, I was bedded by a stranger.”

Noelle Charlston lived a fairy-tale life: a doting father, a powerful job, and a future blessed with financial security.

However, two meetings with two men changed her happy existence forever. First, she met the boy who made her heart sing. Second, she met the man who made her blood quiver.

Noelle’s freedom was no longer hers. It belonged to the man her father believed was the perfect match. The man who pulled his lies over everyone he touched.
Including her.

Seduced and manipulated, Noelle lives two lives. The one everyone sees on the outside and the one no one sees on the inside. The lies he spins, the truth he hides, the mystery he webs—it’s all enough to slowly erode the woman she’d been and turn her into something else.

Until her past collides with her present.
And it’s her turn to lie.
To everyone…including herself.

A Princess living in the Tallest Tower of the strongest Castle , imprisoned by the Dragon, and the Prince of True Love shall save her. 
Elle is an Heiress of Multi Billion Dollar company -Belle Elle. At 19 she's trapped and imprisoned by her stature, her wealth and her fate. Her life has been scheduled by her Father, who loves her a lot , he just wants her secure and entitled. But she's just 19, and yet she has never explored the city on her own. Because she's running a billion-dollar company and never been to a party or gossiped with girls or kissed a boy. She just wants to be normal... just for a few hours. So she does the unthinkable, acting on impulse, she just wanders out of security net and into the unknown. 
One night. One encounter. One man 

How had my night gone from alley robbery to bush-filled kisses? How had I transcended from lonely workaholic to falling for a man I’d only just met ? A man who lived on the opposite scale of me in every little thing. Wealth and poverty. Safety and danger.He looked mid-twenties with hardness only born from fighting every day of his life. I was soft where he was sharp. I knew how to fight but in boardrooms and on conference calls, not on the streets.

One night is what it takes to launch her life into a different trajectory altogether. That night has consequences reverberating through the rest of the life. So loud that the noise becomes her nightmares depriving her off her sleep and filling them with guilt!!

I hadn’t lived up to my oath. A life for a life. He’d saved me. And I haven’t saved him.

Yet she can't let go of him, her virginal body and soul is imprinted with Nameless's kiss and scent . 

“You don’t even know me.”
“I don’t have to know you. I feel you.”
I hindered him while he tried to do the right thing by keeping me safe. For the second time. He doesn’t even know me, yet he’s claimed responsibility for me.

She becomes all woman and lets Nameless claim her heart.
Alas , Cruel turn of events snatched him away and she ........just endures the painful mishap .

I had to accept that I had no time for romance, no patience for dating, and no prospects at partnership other than business expansion. I was so lucky compared to most. Love is a small price to pay.

Elle is lonely and broken hearted. Her dad is sad to see her drifting through a loveless dry life. So he tries meddling by setting her up with few prospective suitors. But her heart is barren.........
Till she meets Penn Everett . He's overpowering, all male, driven and mysterious. Everything Elle doesn't need......but wants . With every fibre of her being. !
And herein lies her conundrum
Give in and be inhaled , or give up and exhale Penn
Well, Penn is anything , if not persistent. He relentlessly pursues her , almost gate crashing her parties, bulldozing the walls of her prisoned heart, till she reluctantly grants him access. 
But Betrayal and Love are two sides of the same coin

My heart had a box with three different puzzles mixed up inside. 
The pieces were tangled, their edges able to fit together to form an incorrect Frankenstein of three scenes, but unless the three puzzles were separated, none of them were true.

As is so expertly painted by Pepper in this story. She creates masterpiece story, her characters emanate power . Penn is very Masculine, very secretive and very enveloping in his Charm
Elle is dainty yet driven, beautiful and intelligent, protected yet adventurous.  
Pepper is one of those rare breed of Natural Born Writers . She doesn't follow norms , yet creates norms - 
I don't think outside the box. I never got in it !!
 And this book is no exception. The story made me stop at multiple places , where I thought I had figured out the truth, but I hadn't!! There are twists that will make you gasp, the blind corners are never ending and the buildup to the other half is very intriguing ( though made me impatient ) 
It's an absolute delight to read her written words and I Truly, Madly , Deeply fell in love with Penn Everett 
I cannot wait for Throne of Truths now

My Review:

5 Stars!!!

How in the world does one constantly write books that hook you from reading the blurb to turning the last page? Pepper Winters, of course has mastered this wonderful talent. Crown of Lies is one that will have you turning the pages without coming up for air. The suspense, the high's and low's, but most important of all, the story-line. Crown of Lies delivered and has left me wanting more. 

Noelle Charlston (Elle) has grown up with her father after loosing her mother. Her father made it his mission to have the world revolve around Elle. Never wanting for anything, always a daddy's girl. But how much can a young girl take of constantly being directed in the way her father deems. At some point the teenager/young adult has to experience life outside of what her father dictates. 

Turning 19, Elle decided to escape and attempt to see what 'real people' do. On her birthday evening, she heads to NYC alone. This is the turning point in her life. What happens, Elle will never be able to erase from her memory. Haunting her, Tormenting her, Searching, Wondering and most of all...the feeling of loneliness...spending years looking for 'nameless'

Penn Everett is a very mysterious that will have you lusting for. What is it that he is wanting from Elle? His reasoning's for finding her and making a deal with her is a move in this chess game that leaves you wanting to say checkmate but clearly there is a pawn in the game. 

Needing more from this story is an understatement!!! Until February 28th when Throne of Truth comes out... I will be thinking of how in the world will Pepper Winters tie all of this together and end this game of Truth, Lies and Mysteries.
