Synopsis

Darkness can be stained by light. Light can outshine the darkest of corners.

Behind a window in Amsterdam’s desired Red Light District, Samantha practices the art of seduction. Man after man, she controls them, seeking what they both want. But behind the façade of the glass, lies her truth waiting to be uncovered. An inner battle of light and dark takes place as Sam learns to release the past and truly live the beautiful tragedy that is life.

Red lights and black hearts collide in a tale of heart and soul.

Excerpt

We all walk in the shadow of something. A shadow of expectancy, of pride, of ego, of memories. For some that shadow is the companion to the lonely. My shadow has been my company for so many years. It has pushed me to fight and win. It has talked me into doing things and talked me out of them. Tonight, my shadow dances along with me with the peaked interest of my visitors. One in particular. My shadow seeks his across the snow-covered street, but it’s nowhere to be found.

I have come to terms that Max and I are connected. I have come to accept he is bound to my life for now. What I have not come to realize is my need to see him. I search for him among the audience in awe of the window of pleasure and pain. I shut him out with the thick scarlet curtains that adorn my palace, but seek him in the darkness of the night. The moon traveling in search for the light of the sun to give it purpose.

For a long time I haven’t had a purpose besides survive in a world that I know how to control. I use what I have to move and seduce, destruct the power of some for a little while. Make them beg for something only I can give them. It may seem twisted to some, but it gives me a high to know I can control them. It pushes me forward knowing I have the upper hand. The other option is unacceptable.

Now, my mind is starting to rouse with new purpose. I’m familiar with the symptoms, but I can’t diagnose the disease. This purpose can give new meaning or destroy the little I have left. It could shatter that glass window, or keep me enclosed forever.

Red Lights, Black Hearts

Copyright 2016, Fabiola Francisco

I shared this with my reader group this weekend. It’s the best way I can sum up this story: I’m sharing with you all a book about heart and soul. A story about growth and healing. I’m giving you a story about real life and the struggles that come tied to the ugliness life offers. It isn’t a happy story. It isn’t pretty and romantic. It’s hopeful. It’s honest, and it’s raw.

I am so looking forward to sharing Samantha’s story with you all! Mark your calendars for July 18th!

Happy Summer!

I love summer break almost as much as I love Thanksgiving (pumpkin pie wins, though). I hope you are all enjoying some warmer weather. It is hot here in South Florida—perfect for beach days.

As many of you know, this summer I am also releasing my sixth book. (When did that happen?!) I still get giddy when I finish a new book. It really never gets old, and part of that is thanks to all of you lovely readers. I get to share my stories with all of you. Red Lights, Black Hearts is different than my other books. It’s honest and raw. I’ve mentioned that before. I hope it makes you reflect and look at situations differently like it did for me. Mostly, I hope you connect with Sam and her story. She is a character that grows so much from beginning to end.

Red Lights, Black Hearts is set to release on July 18th. Keep an eye out for the cover reveal on June 27th. Kari from Cover to Cover Designs hit it out of the park with this one. I am also sharing an exclusive excerpt on my newsletter once my edits are back in. Don’t miss it! You can sign-up here: http://eepurl.com/bm9D0b.

Add Red Lights, Black Hearts to your TBR and check in for the cover reveal here or on any of my social media pages. I hope your summer is off to a great start, and you’re getting some great reading time in!

Sweet on Wilde

Sweet on Wilde is LIVE and I cannot be more excited to share this story with you!! This is a fun and flirty read that will make you swoon and fall in love with the characters—the perfect southern romance. You may have heard me say already that this is different than my other books, but I’m glad I gave this book a chance. I hope you all enjoy this story!!

Sweet on Wilde

Synopsis:

Eight months ago, I made a deal with my best friend. This wasn’t your typical pact. No, we had to take a different route. The deal was that if we were still single by fall, we would join online dating. Yes…now I am that girl. Just me, though, because she met a guy and saved herself from the awkwardness of dating people you meet via the Internet.

Cheesy pick up lines.
Inappropriate messages.
Disaster dates.

I don’t want to be “Savannah, profile 8713,” but a pinky promise is a promise you keep. What I wasn’t counting on was meeting a guy at the local bar.

So what happens when you decide to open yourself up to new opportunities? You might just cross paths with someone who makes you believe in love. Parker Wilde brought out the best in me and understood the worst, but when an amazing opportunity presents itself and our lives take different directions, is being sweet on Wilde enough for us?

Two years.

It’s been two long years since Ava packed everything and left the life she once knew far behind her seeking a new adventure. All, except for her broken heart.

Once upon a time Ava and Ethan were in love. Their relationship was perfect, and they both planned a future together, filled with promise and hope. It wasn’t until an unwelcomed event storms into their lives, tearing their plans and dreams away; leaving Ethan broken and Ava unable to recover.

Two years later, fate crosses their paths once again but the shadow of their haunted past lingers. Ava has slowly rebuilt her life, finally finding some normalcy in it. On the other hand, Ethan has sorted to releasing his guilt and remorse in questionable ways, but his thoughts never strayed from the memories of Ava.

Will they get a second chance to rewrite their story, or will the pain and rejection be too much for Ava to bear and furthermore forgive?

unScripted by Christy Pastore

Ronan is a Keeper

Happy release day to Christy Pastore!!! I am so excited for her new novel, unScripted. Christy has become a dear friend of mine in the past few months, and I cannot be happier for her. Congratulations! Christy also has one hot muse for Ronan. Here, let me give you a visual.

Hot right?! Meet Ronan! I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this book. Below you will find my review!

http://www.amazon.com/Unscripted-Scripted-Book-Christy-Pastore-ebook/dp/B00QCTT4JQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1418124663&sr=8-1&keywords=unscripted+christy+pastore

Where do I begin? I’m so grateful I received an ARC for this book. I’ve been anticipating its release for a long time. Ronan Connolly. Need I say more? If you haven’t heard of him yet, let me introduce you. Hollywood’s Irish heartthrob. The man is sexy. He will make you swoon.

Unscripted follows Holliday and Ronan’s story. When they first meet Holliday is unsure of Ronan’s true intentions, but unable to deny her attraction, she gives into the lust she feels. Who wouldn’t, right? Holliday is a character I instantly loved. She’s smart, confident, and strong. Despite having lived a terrible experience, she has fought to regain her life and works each day towards becoming stronger.

Ronan doesn’t date. He’s very clear about that. He’s had his own share of broken relationships, but never been in love. Seeing the love he has for his daughters is amazing. A true father despite his role in Hollywood, it wins you over. It gives you some insight to why he is so protective of Holliday, and affected by her story. He definitely has the caretaker quality in him.

I love the honesty between these two characters. Understandably so, Holliday is a bit hesitant to open up about certain things in her past. When she does, Ronan’s support takes your breath away. He wants nothing more than to protect her and rid her of the past that harmed her. Reading the twist and turns this book took made me gasp in surprise at times. I did not see some things coming. Love how the mystery is revealed little by little, always revealing new layers of the characters.

The secondary characters were beautifully developed as well. Their roles in Holliday and Ronan’s lives intrigued me. It was interesting to see certain connections between the two. I also adored Holliday’s relationship with her sister and brother in law. It showed true family bonds.

This story screams sexy, passion, and love. I truly enjoyed how Pastore combined the lust filled desires of the characters with their deeper feelings for one another. Seeing both characters process those feelings and opening up to them was a true pleasure. Although it is part of a series, it doesn’t leave you with a jaw-dropping cliffhanger, which is nice. You get a full story, but you’ll definitely want more when you finish. I can’t wait to see how this story continues and the development of Ronan and Holliday’s relationship. I sense some more twist and turns in the future.
