Finalist* Independent Author Network 2015 Book Awards, Romance Category
Season Scrimshaw isn't selling the land her parents left her when they died, not even to the gorgeous Rann Brogan who saved her life in the forest. Not after she finds out he was in the woods to survey her property.
Rann's mother owns Terra Care, a land development company. She wants Season's land to put up a strip of luxury condos along the lake. And she wants it bad. Although Rann works for his mother, he's never been close to her. To say they have a normal mother/son bond would be a big stretch. But now he realizes the cold, ruthless woman will go to any lengths to get what she wants and dispose of anyone who gets in her way.
Lives spiral out of control, secrets, lies and betrayal take center stage. Caught between his rich and powerful mother and the woman he loves, Rann is forced to make a choice. He soon realizes love is complicated...and in this case, lethal.
This is a stand-alone New Adult Contemporary Romance.
What Reviewers Are Saying.
"WOW! Keta Diablo has a great new hit here! You will enjoy this from beginning to end. This is my honest opinion: I loved this story and would have loved for it to just kept going. I'm sure that everyone has read a book that they could have enjoyed it no matter how long it was. This is one of those books." Kayla Sue, Amazon Reader, 5 stars
"Keta Diablo has timed each piece of her romantic puzzle to perfection. As they begin to fall into place, I found myself lost in the entanglements of two worlds colliding, while being warped by evil. Hang on tight; this ride is full of twists, turns and the power of this author's imagination. I can definitely say, I never thought this tale would unfold the way it did, no cookie cutter writing from this author!" Tome Tender, 5 Stars
"When disaster strikes, it hits hard and no character sees it coming. The antagonist in the story, sadly for the main characters, is as smart as they are bad, so the plan nearly succeeds far too well. I liked the story very much, enjoyed the ending, and I hope the author does another story in this world with the Matt and Bernadette's story." The Leisure Zone, 4.5 Stars
"I thought it was going to be a normal chase through fall in love, fight with mom, kind of story, but I was pleasantly surprised when the story changed. Loved the twist as it was quite dark, and unexpected, but worked beautifully for the story. Don't want to give away too much for those of you yet to read the book. I enjoyed it." Cashmere, 5 Stars
"This book holds lots of surprises from start to finish. More as it goes along. I had never read any by Keta Diablo and this will not be my last book. Great book, well written characters and plot was well thought out. I was impressed all the way around. The author left ideas for other books for other characters in the book without having a cliffhanger which was much appreciated. Loved this book." Amazon Reader, 5 stars
