Kaleidoscope Hearts is LIVE!  

Meet Oliver and Elle in this wonderful stand-alone!

Synopsis 3


He was my older brother’s best friend.

He was never supposed to be mine.

I thought we would get it out of our system and move on.

One of us did.

One of us left.

Now he’s back, looking at me like he wants to devour me. And all those feelings I’d turned into anger are brewing into something else, something that terrifies me.

He broke my heart last time.

This time he’ll obliterate it.

“Look at me, Elle,” he says, using the deliciously low demanding voice that once made my toes curl and my eyes roll back, and I have no choice but to tilt my head to give him my attention. “Forget those lame guys you’re dating.

Let me take you out.”

My heart, if possible, spikes further in my chest, overriding all warning of the impending chaos that’s sure to come. I try turning my attention to the poster hanging beside me, but the kissing couple makes me look back at him and the deep green eyes that are burning into mine. My stomach does a flip-flop, the way it always does when he looks at me that way and I try to take my hands back because these feelings are too scary for me to deal with right now, but he holds them tighter, bringing them up to his mouth and kissing the tip of my ring finger. Why did he pick that finger to kiss? I pull harder and he finally lets my hand drop.

“I can’t,” I say, my voice coming out hoarse.

A myriad of emotions flash in his eyes before they settle on determination and I’m forced to take a step back, away from his scent, away from his warmth, and into the cold closet behind me.

“Why not?”

I sigh, finally looking away, back down to his naked feet. “I just can’t.” He knows why not. He shouldn’t ask me that question. “What’s Vic doing, anyway?”

His body moves into mine so quickly that I don’t have time to react to his large hands clutching my arms or his face dropping until we’re nose to nose. I just stare, wide eyed, waiting for his lips to fall over mine, but they don’t. He just looks at me, breathes on me, lets me breathe on him, and he groans. And that fucking groan travels from his body into mine and crawls into the core of me, draping over every fiber inside of me.

“What do you want, Oliver?” I whisper against his lips. “What do you want from me? You want to kiss me? You want to fuck me? You want to come into my life like the hurricane that you are and tear down everything I’ve rebuilt and disappear just as quickly?”

His lips brush slightly against mine, just a breath of a touch as he stands there, crowding me like he’s about to devour me. But he won’t. He never goes in for the kill. He just lures me, casts me, reels me in and pulls away. His hands drop and his face leaves mine with the same quickness and I feel a pang deep inside me that I wish wasn’t there.

“I’m sorry,” he says quietly, shaking his head in a movement that makes his hair sway back and forth. His eyes are soft on mine now and I can almost hear his thoughts: I should have never kissed her. I should have never—

My brows rise in surprise at the apology, though. There are so many things I can say to him, but the sudden defeated look in his eyes keeps my mouth shut. Finally, I exhale and push off the wall, standing in front of him, with enough distance between us that we can’t reach out and touch each other.

“It’s okay just… don’t do it again. The kiss the other day was a mistake…” I stop talking and walk past him, putting my bra away and sorting through my underwear drawer like it has some sort of hidden treasure or something. This time when I feel him come up behind me, I drop my head and exhale. He really needs to stop sneaking up behind me.

“Oli—“ I start and gasp when I feel his lips on the back of my neck, soft and warm. My heart thunders and my hands begin to shake inside the drawer so I close my eyes and focus on breathing. He drops another kiss right beside that spot. I never knew the back of my neck was so sensitive. The feeling sends a ripple of sensation down my arms and through my body.

“It wasn’t a mistake,” he says in a husky whisper that makes my flesh break out in goose bumps. “You’ve never been a mistake. You want me to tell your brother that I want to take you out? Is that what it would take?”

Mia Ryan has learned the hard way that her choices can have horrible consequences. Taking an offer that was supposed to get her life back on track was nothing but a ploy.

I woke to the sound of waves crashing as my nose caught the salty scent of the ocean. I rolled over to find red rose petals scattered over the bed, with a long-stemmed one lying in the middle. Securing the sheet around me, I rested on my elbows before picking up the single rose. Ethan was on his side with his eyes on me. I twirled the rose and gave him a soft smile. He was without a shirt and propped on an elbow. His messy hair was wet with droplets of water dripping along his neck and the contours of his shoulders, before sliding down his carved chest. The sunlight pouring in from the window made his body gleam. He always aroused me instantly, but staring at him now made him seem even more God-like, and I wanted every part of him.

“Did you take a shower without me? That has to be a first.”

Ethan reached over to tuck my hair behind my ears. His hand trailed down my side to rest on mine. “I got up at sunrise to catch some waves.”

“I didn’t know you surfed. I’m not surprised, since you like wakeboarding so much.”

He brought our bodies so close that our chests were nearly touching. My heart sped up as he leaned over me with his hand clamped on my hip. “I surf, but you’re wrong about boarding. I don’t like it – I love it. Surfers get really pissy if boarders ruin their ride so I don’t wakeboard when I’m on the ocean. I settle for catching waves on a different board, but I don’t love it nearly as much.”

I caught the passion in his eyes. Ethan loved doing anything on the water. My mouth twisted into an adoring grin as I stared at my magnificent boyfriend. “You taught me how to board. I suppose you can teach me how to surf, too?”

Ethan chuckled. “I’d love to. I’m not sure if we’ll have time on this trip. I’ll line up another one soon. We should go to Hawaii or Australia. If you’re going to learn, you might as well learn in one of the best surfing spots on the planet.”

His hand veered from my hip down to my ass where he gently pinched me. Ethan licked his luscious lips, and I saw a hunger in his eyes. I knew that look. My breaths started becoming shorter as I responded to his fingers traveling further down. Ethan hovered over me and pulled at my elbows to lay me on my back. He took the rose out of my hand and set it on the nightstand before sliding down the sheet. His lips fell to my collarbone and water dripped from his hair into my cleavage. The coolness of it sizzled with the fire inside me.

“When is our first meeting today?” I stuttered.

“It’s still early. We can do whatever you want for a while,” Ethan purred.

He continued to leisurely kiss his way down to my breasts while one hand wandered further down my thigh. My hand drifted between his thighs where I timidly stroked his straining erection. His lips traveled along my chest until they reached my breasts. Ethan flicked both nipples to attention before taking one and sucking frantically. I groaned when he gently bit down before letting his tongue take over.

“We can go for a walk on the beach,” Ethan murmured heatedly.

I grasped under his shoulders to bring him closer to me. Once in reach, I ran my lips along the top of his pecks and returned the favor by biting down along each of his nipples.

“We can go do some sightseeing,” Ethan groaned loudly.

My fingers ran across the tip of his cock before travelling down his shaft. I worked to match the speed of my lips and the hand wrapped around him. My body clenched as my ache for him grew. His lips journeyed to my neck where his tongue glided to my jaw.

“Or we can stay here and make love,” Ethan whispered passionately.

He spread my legs even further and settled his hand inside before running several fingers in and out. They slipped along the slickness. I bit down on his top lip as he approached my mouth. I moved my tongue along the top of his before going under his chin. I licked away at the saltiness with fervor. His chest rumbled as I continued meticulously sucking along his throat. His fingers matched the pace of my lips as they slipped over my clit.

He stilled my hand around him and placed it along his back. I brought my other hand around him tightly, needing him to satisfy the inferno he had created. He entered, with every inch of him penetrating deep within me. I cried out and commanded my overly turned-on body not to let go. I ran my hands down to his ass to urge him to move again. He groaned before twisting his hips.

I brought my hips up to meet every thrust he gave. My hands scratched up his back on their way to his neck. I pulled him into me in demand for more and he drove into me harder, creating a feeling of euphoria throughout my body. I screamed out his name with each twist of his hips. He slowed down to take several drawn-out thrusts.

“Fuck, you feel more amazing every time,” Ethan shouted.

My hips matched his momentum as he brought us closer. He paused to roll us over to put me on top so I could take him. I rolled my hips with urgency to find a release for us both. My back arched as my hips carried along wildly. Ethan ran his hands along my sides before cupping my breasts tenderly.

“Ethan … God, yes …” I panted.

He sat up to bring our faces together and straddled my legs around him before driving his hips into me. My nails dug into his back as my body started to clench around him. Our thrusts sped up as our bodies strove for a climax. I tightened around him as he started to tremble. I ran my hands to his hair where I grabbed on tightly and screamed out as the ecstasy took me from the room to a far-off place. I shuddered and continued until my body found solid ground again. Ethan rested his head in my shoulder as he found his own release. He gently placed me on my back and slid out before falling next to me, his fingers scratching lightly along my belly.

Synopsis 3

How much is a life worth?

Mariana Rodriguez is the eldest daughter of a Colombian drug lord. Growing up in Villanueva, Colombia, she has never wanted for anything. Private schools, a lavish lifestyle, and the safety of the Cartel that her father works for.

At nineteen, she’s got her entire life mapped out, and what a good life it’s going to be: graduate from college, move to America, and finally be free from the stifling grip of the Cartel.

Only, her father messes up. A shipment of cocaine – a very large, very valuable shipment – is seized by the authorities whilst under his care and he becomes liable for the debt. Half a million dollars worth of cocaine.

Half a million dollars he does not have.

But he has a daughter, a very smart one, a daughter who would give up her very existence and offer herself as payment for her father’s sins, to ensure her family survives.

But falling in love with the man who owned her wasn’t part of the plan …

Girls who were traded in this world never lasted long before it destroyed them, and the Gypsy Brothers had the blackest touch of all.

She blinked her huge eyes, and tears fell from them, running down her cheeks and hitting his hand. He lifted his hand off her lips and brushed more tears from her cheeks with his fingers.

Dornan wanted to tell her she shouldn’t cry. That crying implied weakness. But, as the saltwater leaving her body burned on his hand, he said nothing. Because the minute he left the room, he was going to press his tongue to every one of her tears that had fallen onto his skin and taste how sweet they were himself.

Synopsis 3

When I was ten, my father indoctrinated me into the family.

A brotherhood who would fight, protect, and give their lives for one another. A club whose ties ran thicker than blood, murkier than the dirt and grime that tainted my soul. Stronger than the bonds that connected me to my own family.

A band of brothers, where loyalty was kept and paid in a currency of blood.

When I was twenty-seven, I betrayed that brotherhood.

I’ve spent every day since running, avoiding paying back that debt.

My name is Daniel Johnson. I have betrayed everyone I ever loved.

And I’ll betray her too.

This is my story—if you’re screwed up enough to want to read it.

Warning: KICK contains graphic violence, profanity, drug use, and explicit sexual situations of a taboo nature. Intended for an 18+ audience only. Not intended for pussies.

Kick 1


I take a deep shuddering breath, close my eyes and stretch my hand towards him. His touch is gentle this time, far more gentle than I’d ever thought someone with so much uncontained violence to him could be.

“Spread your fingers,” he commands. I do, and he lifts the roll of tape, presses the edge to my skin and begins winding it over my knuckles. I close my eyes. The strident sound of it stretching out from the roll makes me want to flee. It makes me want to run as far from his touch—from any man’s touch—as I can possibly get.

The feel of the tape against my flesh, binding, holding, is so much worse. I tug on my hand, but he won’t let go. My heartrate skyrockets, and sweat beads erupt over my brow and upper lip. I’m in that room again, struggling, screaming, trying to fight them off, and failing.

Biker knows it, too. His dark eyes challenge, they dare me to run, but they also implore me to stay. It’s ironic that the only thing keeping me here, keeping me grounded, is the man who abducted me.

He holds my gaze. I don’t know exactly what is hidden in his dark blue one, but it suffocates the panic within me, douses it like water flooding flames. He bends his head to my hand. Taking the paper tape in his mouth, he rips it with his teeth.

I still. I soften. His gaze doesn’t leave mine, not even once. Not even when he starts in on my wrist, gently biting through each piece of tape before pressing it down with his rough hands. I’m mesmerised by his mouth, the piercing, and the soft, full lips. The light catches a silver chain around his neck, something I’ve never noticed before—but then I try not to make a habit of staring too closely at him. Not now, though. Now I watch every twitch, every blink, every intake of breath, and every inch that is swallowed up by his mouth moving closer to my flesh.

**Bound by custom or unique by choice.**

There’s something about the written word that’s pure magic.
Possibly it’s the fact that there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering that they’re able to change our lives.

How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds?

I like to think of myself as ‘unique’. My stories aren’t for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be ‘normal’.

Normal is subjective.

I prefer to be known as a person who’s never been ‘bound by custom’ but is ‘unique by choice’.

Until next time

Emily’s life sounded more like the punch line to a joke than an actual turn of events.

… a student nurse walks into an illegal, underground fighting club…

Emily Sheppard didn’t have much to live for. As a foster child, her life was anything but glamorous and her daily commute through New York’s underbelly reminded her of that. Nursing was her life, her only way to help others in need.

Then her pride took it from her. 

Jai Stone wasn’t important. The train he rode around New York never let him forget that. Jai had fights to fight and a brother to save, but one random night slipped an innocent into his grasp.

Now they’re trapped together.
A fighter and a nurse.
… and it all comes down to one truth.

★★★★★ BOOK SPOTLIGHT AND REVIEW ~ Finding Laila by TK Rapp (Penny Lisa)

Now Available


Title: Finding Laila

Author: T.K. Rapp

Release Date: Jan 13, 2015

Find on Goodreads

Synopsis 3

Joey, Cole, Haden and Braxton have been a constant in my life since I was five, and I have loved being one of the guys.

I’ve been cheerleader.

I’ve been study partner.

I’ve been listener.

When we’re young, we don’t realize the profound impact certain people will have on our lives. I had no idea twelve years ago I’d meet four boys who would turn out to be my best friends, my soul mates – my barmy.

Now school is almost done, our last summer together is drawing closer, and I’m trying to hold on to what we have while I still can. After this we’ll have to say goodbye to each other, as our choices will take our lives in different directions. But I don’t know if our friendship can survive once secrets and surprises begin revealing themselves to us at every turn.

When it’s all said and done, will our friendships remain unbreakable? Or will our once strong bond prove to be weaker than we anticipated?

Letting go is harder than I thought, but some changes are necessary.

And finding Laila…finding myself…may be the greatest journey of all.


Teaser 1Review5 Pennies

I don’t normally consider myself a fan of YA books, but lately a couple of authors have changed that for me. TK Rapp is one of those authors. Finding Laila has a fresh premise with a grounded female lead who is supported by friends and family that love and respect her. While she faces challenges in discovering who she really is, she finds inner strength and pulls strength from those who surround her as she transitions to womanhood.

This beautifully crafted story is one that will stay with me for a long time and will bring smiles and tears when I reflect back on it. The friendships forged by Laila and her “Barmy” challenge societal thinking about male/female relationships.

I thoroughly enjoyed having the opportunity to read Finding Laila as it was being written and love the fact that it can be enjoyed by adults and young people too. I would have no qualms about letting my 14 year old son read the story based on its content. This was a 5 star read for me!

“I guess we know the flavor of the week,” a female voice says from behind me, causing several others with her to laugh.

I know they’re talking about me. They’re always talking about me. It’s been this way since I was in seventh grade, but I’ve made it my mission to ignore it.

“She certainly gets around,” another voice chimes in.

Cole is sitting to my left, Haden to my right and both guys are staring at the field, but neither is paying attention to the game. I watch out of my peripheral as Haden’s forearm muscles tense and relax while Cole bites his lip. They are intently focused on the words being thrown at me, but keep quiet for the time being.

“She must be good because they all stick around,” a guy’s voice states in salacious tone that makes me nauseous.

I don’t wait for another barb to be hurled my way, even though I know it’s coming. I throw my arm around Haden and whisper something in his ear before kissing his cheek then turning to do the same to Cole. I lean forward to see Joey, who is next to Cole and give him a wink, “I’ll get you later, Baby.”

He shakes his head and laughs, “Why must you stir the pot?”

Haden smiles – proud of my display – and it pushes me on.

I turn to look at the three classmates who have stopped chattering long enough to watch my little show, jaws hanging open. I shrug my shoulders, and answer Joey, “I’m just giving them what they want.”

One of the girls, Kasey, looks at me and raises a brow, “And what about Braxton?”

I glance over to Cole who’s listening to everything, but is still watching the game. He smirks, as if he knows what’s coming and a smile of my own begins to break.

They are gawking at me when I turn and wet my lips before winking at the girls.

“If he wins, we all win,” I say huskily.

“Touchdown!” The announcer yells and the crowd jumps to their feet to celebrate. All but the three jerks behind me.

Upon finally settling in Texas, T.K. worked as a graphic designer and photographer for the family business that her mom started years earlier. She was able to infuse her creativity and passion, into something she enjoyed, but something was still missing. There was a voice in the back of her head that told her to write, so write, she did. And, somewhere on an external hard drive, are several stories she started and never finished.

Now at home, raising her two daughters, T.K. has more time to do the things she loves, which includes photography and writing. When she’s not doing one of those, she can be found with her family, which keeps her busy. She enjoys watching her kids in their various sporting activities (i.e. doing the soccer mom thing), having Sunday breakfast at her parent’s house, singing out loud and out of key or dancing like a fool. She loves raunchy humor, gossip blogs and a good book.

Pennies On The Road ~ Destination Cleveland Author Event (Penny Lisa)

Posted on

Travelling to author events and book signings are an opportunity for bloggers to not only meet the authors they have read, but new ones too.  Last April Stephanie and I, along with our friends Laura and Penny, met up in Cleveland for the first Cleveland Author Event at the House of Blues.  We had an amazing time, met so many authors and bloggers and Stephanie and I got to meet in person for the first time.

HOBsStephanie Marshall


Laura and her husband were incredibly gracious hosts and opened up their home to me.  We had such a good time together and Laura was an excellent tour guide showing me all the great things Cleveland has to offer including The Original Pancake house where we will have to visit again, without a doubt.

Laura Dent II

So in a matter of months, we will be ascending upon Cleveland again to attend this event again.  Our group is trying to read through the list of authors and hope to make a major dent if not complete it entirely.

The most recent list of authors includes:

AD Justice, AM Madden, Abby McCarthy, Aleatha Romig , Alexis Noelle, Amy Harmon, Angela Graham, Bayli Michele, Beth Michele, Brooke Page, Chelle Bliss, Chelsea Camaron, Cheryl McIntyre, Chloe T Barlow, Christina Lee, Corinne Michaels, Dina Given, EK Blair, Emersyn Vallis, Emily Minton, Erin McCarthy, FL Jacob, Gretchen Le La O, Hilary Storm, HJ Bellus, J Daniels, JA Huss, JA Hensley, Jamie Begley, Jaime Whitley, Jayne Rylon, Jennifer SIvec, Jessie Lane, Julie Bailes, K Pinson, Kate Roth, Kathy Coopmans, Kemmie Michaels, Kimberly Stedronsky, Laura Dunaway, Lexi Ryan, Lisa Suzanne, Magan Vernon, Mia Sheridan, MJ Carnal, MJ Fields, Nelle L’Amour, Nina G Jones, River Savage, RL Griffin, Ryan Michele, Sadie Grubor, Sara Mack, Sarah Brianne, Shay Savage, Skye Turner, Stacey Bentley, Stacey Marie Brown, Stacey Mosteller, Stacy Borel, TH Snyder, Tara Sivec, Tessa Bailey, Tessa Teevan, Tia Louise, and Whitney Barbetti

*Names in bold are authors I have already read.


The event is sold out, but maybe you might be able to score some tickets if attending authors do any giveaways.


Laura and I will be attending the blogger/author breakfast the morning of the event and look forward to some one on one time with our favorite writers.  Getting to see Kimberly Stedronsky again will definitely be a highlight of the trip for me.
And while we won’t be able to repeat last year’s cupcakefest with Penny Reid, Renee Carlino and Carey Heywood, we are sure something just as magical will happen this year.

‘You do this a lot?’ I asked abruptly.

He took a step closer. I took a step back. It was timed so well, it was almost as if we were dancing some sort of macabre waltz.

He laughed when we moved in unison.

‘Depends,’ he replied, ‘on what this is.’

‘Pick up pretty girls for your daddy?’ I shot back.

Something passed over his face for a moment and settled in his eyes. Something hard. And then, I blinked, and it was gone again.

‘Sure,’ he said, and his voice had changed somehow. Become more reserved, more guarded. Damn. The only person who’d shown me the tiniest bit of normality, and I had just alienated him. As usual, I was running off at the mouth before I thought about what I was actually saying.

‘None as pretty as you, though,’ he added.

Teaser 1


I’m sitting here, holding Lia’s hand. It’s cold and she’s pale white. So I just sit and stare, at nothing – waiting. Waiting for what exactly, I don’t know. It’s not like she’s suddenly going to wake up. I stare at her beautiful face, so lifeless and still. I don’t know why I let go of her hand. I was holding her so tight even with all those people around. I should have held on – I should have fought harder. I failed, and now all I have before me is a motionless body of the woman I love beyond anything I’ve ever loved in my entire life. If I could be in her place, I would gladly swap.

They say the moment before you die your life flashes before your eyes. I wonder if anything like that happened to Lia? I wonder if she felt nothing but bliss before she flat-lined? I hope so, and I hope that wherever her soul is right now that she’s happy and not looking down on the mess that I am without her.

Author Bio


Australian author K E Osborn was born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia. Having worked in the optical industry for some time, K E Osborn decided it was time to leave the optical world behind and start on something new. With a background in graphic design and a flair for all things creative, she tried her hand at writing.

K E Osborn hid the fact that she was writing from her family, as she believed her first story was simply something she had to get on paper first and then judge if it was good enough for others to read. It wasn’t until her mother found a printed version of the manuscript that her secret came out. She was a writer, and she loved it. Writing gives her life purpose. It makes her feel, laugh, cry, and get completely enveloped with the characters and their story lines. She feels at home when writing.
