Good morning! I am saddend by the loss of my mother-in-law, on Mother’s Day, from a long battle with lung cancer. On Monday my son had surgery on his foot (run over by a car) and found he has a “mass” on his chest. He is a teenage cancer survior of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Hopefully, the spot on his chest is a cyst and nothing else.
I could not pull my thoughts together to write a blog, so I’m posting an excerpt for my future (July 2012) release of The Valkyrie and the Marine. A Wild Rose Press publication.
Conditioned to not fall in love with her fallen warriors, Kiara cannot fight the attraction she has for Special Ops Marine, Harrison Lombard. When a sabotaged mission critically wounds Harrison he seeks revenge. Will his search lead him to his angel of mercy or death?
Kiara looked deep into her chosen one’s soul. She had to shake off her atypical sympathy. But the twinges in her heart and the heat between her thighs couldn’t be ignored.
Harrison’s lips were dry. His glaze held acknowledgement of equal attraction no doubt. A smile from him would be her undoing. Three steps, Kiara. Offer him immortality, toss him on Bright and take to the skies.
Lance in both hands she pushed the rod against his wide shoulder span. “Just to verify, what is your name?”
His muscles tensed under her, pressing into her knuckles. Despite his closeness to death Kiara felt a rise bumping, titillating, and making her yearn for a tryst. No human had ever had such an impact on her. Why now? Ignoring the rush of emotions plaguing her body and mind, she strengthened her reserve and focused on the task. Her future with the squad depended on it. She wanted to become a captain. No tingling in her woman parts would change her course.
“Harrison Valentine Lombard.” His hips lifted, a hard long slice fit nicely between her thighs. “I can’t imagine my last thoughts to be of a siren teasing me, without allowing me to have release. Either kill me, or liberate me so I can —”
“Kiara, it’s time. Grab your Einherjar and let’s ride,” Skogul bellowed.
A last burst of energy flowed from the soldier beneath Kiara. His hand stroked her breast, sliding between the skin and the gold corset. He lifted his head from the ground, causing blood to squirt from the wound. Twitches, low in her stomach, created jittering in muscles higher in her womb. More than pleasing Odin, she wanted to fornicate with this brave, yet stupid man, her Valentine.
“Kiara.” His alluring whisper sailed on the wind.
Fantasies with spice and humor.

Ms. Keller throws you right into the heart of her plot then keeps our attention riveted while we hold our breath to find out what happens next…She is a first-class storyteller with a unique way of telling it. Her love scenes are evocative, sensual and sizzle on the page, while her romance between our hero and heroine is sweet and sensual.

Holy Cow what a great read! Ms. Keller gives us a love at first sight story. Stein and Kerry make a great hero and heroine. I loved the characters, they were well developed and enjoyable to get to know. The writing style was great and was a credit to the author telling such a well written story confined in 148 short pages.

The book doesn’t rely only on spice for its power- there is a complex plot and a really good sort-of-twist at the end. It left me with a smile on my face and a real sense of satisfaction. I’d say this is definitely a story I’d like to share with my friends –well worth a read. Enjoy!
