Book 13 in the USA Today Bestselling Impossible Series—Can be read as a standalone.

A man with a broken heart…
The agony of losing the woman I love to another Dominant has left me dead inside. Over the last two years, sex has become my drug of choice to cope with the loss. I know I’m too broken to ever love again, but that won’t stop me from trying to fuck my pain away.

A woman with a painful past…
I’m not interested in intimacy, but I am interested in sex. As a BDSM romance novelist, I need to explore the world of kink for my books. The power exchange is meaningless; nothing more than research. Until I meet him. The powerful Dom won’t relent until he breaks down all my walls, including the ones that protect my ravaged heart.

Bound together by lust and danger…
Chloe Martin is a BDSM romance author by night and an investigative journalist by day. When the latter brings her to the New York unit of the FBI to research the Latin Kings, she never expects her two careers to collide. The agent she’s shadowing—Dexter Scott—is also a Dominant, and he’s interested in helping with her research in the field and in the bedroom.

But Chloe’s story on the Latin Kings puts her in the line of fire, and Dex’s protective—and possessive—instincts kick in. Can he let go of his pain and find his happily ever after? Or will the danger that surrounds them steal his second chance at love?

What man doesn’t like to be wanted?

Well, not if you’re me and you’ve just done a stint in jail for a crime you didn’t commit.

The press and social media have crucified me. People hate my guts. Nobody believes that I’m innocent.

Especially the woman who is determined to put me back behind bars because I destroyed her family. She’s hell bent on making me pay for my sins.

I’m starting a new life and putting all that crap behind me.

Except that Addison James won’t let me. She worms her way into my life and my bed until she’s under my skin and I just can’t shake her.

I’m Foster Cruise.

I’m wanted.

Follow Victoria's journey as she takes the Latin Dance World by storm and ventures deep into the Latin culture. Steps of the Heart series is a story filled with fabulous fashion, exotic locations and a complicated love triangle.

I have always been the storyteller amongst my family and friends. At gatherings and parties I am always the one telling the stories and sharing memories. So after meeting a romance author at work one day and discovering I had a story to tell I took her advice and sat down to write. I tried her suggested method and immediately walked away from it. Two months later I opened my iPad and used the Notes app without even a keyboard and started writing. I wrote book 1 & 2 of my trilogy on my iPad. Once I started writing I couldn't stop the story from flowing.

Two years ago when I started on this writing journey I walked away from watching television and opened my mind and heart and made changes in my life. Music became my muse and my inspiration.

My day job is in the retail beauty industry. So yeah I am a bit of a diva. I have a true love for makeup and skincare. But my guilty pleasure aside from makeup and music is high heels. You might say I’m addicted to them and have acquired quite a collection. When I'm not writing you will find me with a set headphones on listening to music on my beautiful patio dreaming up a new story idea.

Release Blitz & REVIEW ***Back To The Beginning: A Duet by Laramie Briscoe & Seraphina Donavan***


Release Date: May 31, 2016


Join Laramie Briscoe & Seraphina Donavan as they take you back to where it all started for their two most popular series!

Back to Basics features Liam and Denise of the Heaven Hill Series & Remembered features Vincent and Ophelia of the DuChamps’ Dynasty Series.

Amazon: US / UK / AU / CA


Back to Basics: A Heaven Hill Novella

Family Community Club Duties Responsibilities are time-consuming. They take hours, minutes, and seconds away from moments that could be spent strengthening relationships. When Liam realizes he and Denise have done precious little communicating and loving lately, he takes her on a little road trip with one goal in mind—getting to know each other all over again, body and soul. Amongst waterfalls, adult conversations, visits with old friends, and childless hotel rooms, they get back to basics.

Remembered: A DuChamps’ Dynasty Novella

After two years of marriage, Vincent DuChamps is more in love with his wife, Ophelia, than ever. Their life together is perfect… except for one thing. One dark, ugly secret looms over them and threatens everything Vincent holds dear. A lost night, hours that he can’t account for and waking up in a stranger’s bed, naked—the gaps in his memory and the fear that he did the unthinkable torment Vincent daily. But his worse fears are realized when photos from those missing hours fall into Ophelia’s hands. With his whole world hanging in the balance, Vincent knows one thing… whatever happens, he’s not letting go of her, even if she wants him to.


Review by: Jennifer
( 5 Stars)
As a wife and mother, these two stories sort of hit home for me. 

In Back to Basics by Laramie Briscoe, we join Liam and Denise a few years after marriage. With 3 kids, the club, and all their other things going on, their lives have just been on repeat. In real life we know this happens. Being so tired that you end up just falling into bed at night, waking up the next morning not feeling like you have had any sleep. Those of us that have these lives, totally understand. Its what you do to reconnect that makes it important and I loved how Liam made sure that he reconnected with Denise. This was a nice look into their love. LOL I see a massive reread of the entire series in my future.

Now I have never read any of Seraphina Donavan's DuChamps Dynasty series, but Remembered was amazing. Once again running with the theme of  not letting your marriage take a back burner. Vincent DuChamps is about to have a wake up call, one that lets him know that he needs to keep working at making sure his priorities are with his wife and daughter. Not going into a lot of detail, not giving you spoilers. 

I give this duet 5 stars. It was a nice short read, that was totally relatable.

Review by: Melanie
(5 stars)
After Kat walked out at the end of Savage Lover, Dane is on a mission to get his wife back, and get her home. She's off on tour with her band, so doing that is proving to be very difficult, especially when at every turn he's smacked in the face with photos or stories about her "relationship" with Will Van Ryken, lead singer of the support act touring with The Grinders.

At times I really felt for Dane, yes he was being a bit of a rubbish husband before, but he's seems to be really putting an effort in here to get Kat back, I mean he even considers leaving the Savage Angels for her. As for Kat, while I definitely understood why she left, I think she was maybe being a bit hard on Dane, but at the same time, I think some of that was a case of her bad timing in seeing things.

Is Dane going to be able to get his wife back and keep his club? You're going to have to read the book to get your answer to that one. I really enjoyed Savage Sacrifice, and Kathleen Kelly just seems to improve her storytelling with each book she gives us. I don't know if there will be any more books in the series after the upcoming novella, but I will be first in line to read them if there are. (hint hint Kathleen, I'm sure these guys have more to tell us! LOL). I give Savage Sacrifice 5 stars.
