Kilty As Sin: Time-Travel Urban Fantasy Thriller with a Killer Sense of Humor

by Amy Vansant


Broch and Catriona hit Vegas for another breathtaking adventure in the delightful Kilty romantic suspense series by USA Today and Wall Street Journal best-selling author Amy Vansant. A crime fantasy you won't be able to put down... Ray Donovan meets Outlander meets Archer!

" Brilliant, laugh-out-loud entertainment. I love this series. And honestly, I'm not sure at this point the series could disappoint me. There are riotously funny moments throughout that had me snorting in a most unladylike fashion. Don't be fooled though. The cleverness of the plot threads and the interweaving of different genres makes this book (and series) much more than a laugh. It is addictive, fun, and intelligent. The best kind of entertainment I can ask for, really!" ~ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Bella

When one of Parasol Pictures' assets gets himself into gambling trouble, Broch and Catriona are dispatched to Las Vegas to pay the debt—only to find the debt needs to be worked off. They'll need to battle a mad Russian with an unhealthy interest in Catriona's kickboxing skills...

When Broch is left for dead and Catriona is kidnapped, it's a race against time to reunite before the Russian's plans come to their twisted conclusion.

Back in Hollywood, Catriona's recently returned time-traveling father, Rune, has his eyes on her adoptive father, Sean. When Sean discovers Rune possesses powers he never imagined, it’ll take an old friend to set things straight.

"I love this series!! Characters are fleshed out and the story flows. Very well written. Good dialog. I could just picture it all taking place. Catriona and Broch make a good pair. There are times when you just have to laugh. There are family members involved in this story. Catriona, her sister Fiona, their father and Catriona's adoptive father. This story has it all. There is romance, mystery, action, suspense, sadness, adventure, fear, and a little time travel." ~ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Amazon Reader

"I do not normally read time travel mysteries, as they can be confusing and disjointed. This series is done very well. I had no trouble following the timelines. And as all the trips back to Scotland seemed related to the present plotline, it was cohesive for me." ~ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Amazon Reader

"Terrific Series! I just finished reading the 4-book Kilty series and I am wanting more! I've fallen in love with Catriona and Broch and friends, and I truly hope their story isn't over! The books are well-written, and the stories are clever and captivating." ~ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Amazon Reader

Hopelessly Devoted: Suspenseful Motorcycle Club Romance (Bayou Devils MC Book 1)

by A.M. Myers


Alison:

Dating is so not on my radar anymore. Then again, walking in on your boyfriend in bed with someone else tends to do that to a girl. It’s better this way, though. I’d much rather focus on my career than trust my heart to someone else who is just determined to break it.

Too bad I couldn’t hold onto that conviction as soon as my mysterious neighbor crashed into my life.

Tattooed, brooding biker, Logan is nothing like the men I usually date but the chemistry between us is powerful and I’m helpless against its pull.


Logan:

The MC calls me Storm for a reason. I've been to hell and back with the scars to show from it and I will never let anyone get that close to me again. These days, the only solace I find is partnering with my brothers at the club to fight for those not able to defend themselves.

Then, I met Alison. She took me by surprise and I know I should fight the spark I feel between us but I just can’t seem to walk away from her.

As things between us heat up, my past rears its ugly head, taunting me relentlessly and putting Alison’s life in danger. But I will do whatever it takes to keep her safe and my only hope is that she will be strong enough to ride out this storm by my side.

The sense of community and togetherness had been lost during those tough years. But with a mysterious “Angel of Hope” working to inspire the town, Riley and Claire will find themselves opening up to love and other possibilities by the end of an extraordinary summer…
