From USA Today Bestselling Author Adriane Leigh comes a searing standalone love story with a jaw-dropping twist…

“Hot, emotional, and full of twists and turns!” – Leylah Attar, New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author

When the bottom finally falls out of Tressa Torrado’s life and she’s given an eviction notice for her one-bedroom walk-up, she lands at the first place that’ll have her–and the last place she’d expect to find herself.

Father Bastien Castaneda is trained to heal the wounded of his flock, his warrior strength and mysterious moral fortitude as intoxicating as any superpower. Soon they’re working side by side together–chemistry simmering to a boiling point as two desperate hearts find the will to live again while forbidden love lights like lighter fluid in their hearts.

But it isn’t long before secrets so explosive come to light it torches the very foundations of their belief, and only time will tell if theirs is a love strong enough to survive the inevitable fall.

“Adriane Leigh’s best so far. A masterpiece.” – Nelle L’Amour, New York Times Bestselling Author

“An exceptionally written forbidden romance that needs to be savored. Prose is absolutely stunning and reminiscent of some of my favorite literary fiction writers. Bastien and Tressa’s story is an unforgettable one that will grace my favorites shelf.” – Auden Dar, Bestselling author

Note: Rebel Priest was first written as a novella in 2013 in the Forbidden Fruit V. 2 Anthology under the name Sins of the Flesh, and then as a full-length standalone titled Rebel Saint in 2018. Minor characters, situations, and scenes have been added to enhance the story.

Synopsis

From USA Today Bestselling author Adriane Leigh comes a passionate contemporary romance about giving in to desire so sharp and sweet it threatens to consume…

Georgia Montgomery is desperate for an escape from the life she’s been leading. The perfect job, the perfect apartment, the perfect boyfriend—all are on the cusp of driving her over the edge. On a whim, she buys a beach house on the North Carolina coast, eager to spend a summer with her college friends. She thinks she’s found the perfect balance, until one pleasure-seeking playboy turns her world on its axis. Georgia tries to ignore the tornado of emotion that sweeps through her system whenever Tristan Howell is near, but just like an addiction, one look, one taste, one touch is never enough.

The chemistry is scorching and it isn’t long before the slow burn ignites into a full-blown wildfire that threatens to consume anything in its path. But Georgia and Tristan can’t shelter their love from the outside world, and the moments of exquisite passion they share aren’t enough to sustain the relationship. When scars from the past resurface–will their hearts meld together as one? Or will outside forces tear them apart, leaving an empty shell where love and passion once thrived?

*Note: The characters in Sweet Alibi are real and flawed–they make bad decisions and learn hard lessons. It contains a love triangle, a sweet alpha-male with a broken heart, and a leading lady that doesn’t always know what she wants. If you love a character-driven romance with a hard-fought happily-ever-after, Sweet Alibi is for you. (Formerly The Morning After-Light in Morning duet, now with more than 10,000 words of never-before-published BONUS content!)

Tracey’s Review

***4.5 Steamy, Star-Crossed, Emotional Stars***

So, I have to admit that I’m not always a huge fan of the love triangle. It’s a really fine line between well done and, well, icky, and it takes a really engaging story and well-written characters to make it work for me. Happily, Adriane Leigh has done a great job with all of these things to give us her latest, SWEET ALIBI.

I went into this book knowing that it had some taboo, triangly stuff, but I’ve read and loved Adriane’s books before, so was really excited to see what she’d do here. First off, let me just tell you that I am in love with Tristan Howell. It would have been easy to keep him a one-dimensional sort of guy, the other guy, to make her heroine, Georgia, a girl that ‘just couldn’t help herself.’ Nope. What Adriane has done is taken two characters, ones with baggage and flaws, and allowed them to have the experience of building their own story, regardless of what’s come before. Is it messy? Sometimes. Does it cross lines? Definitely. Did the book edge into the ‘no how, no way’ area? Well, Georgia and Tristan definitely did things differently than I’d like to think that I would, but it was their story to tell, and I could not have loved it more.

I really like that the book is broken into two parts, and is told from both Tristan’s and Georgia’s point of view. Adriane does a wonderful job of developing their story, both individually, and as a couple. As I was reading, I remember thinking, ‘Dang, this book is long!’, but I’m not sure that it could have been any shorter and been as enjoyable or as complete. It was impossible not to become completely immersed and invested in the characters and their stories, and I didn’t stop reading until I hit the last page.

The cast of supporting characters, from the d-bag Kyle, to Georgia’s and Tristan’s best friends Drew, Gavin, and Silas (oh, my gosh, I LOVE Silas! Every girl needs a Silas, I’m telling you…), help make SWEET ALIBI the enjoyable and unputdownable read that it is. I applaud Adriane for combining her THE MORNING AFTER/LIGHT IN THE MORNING duet, and adding bonus material, because this book is now one big wonderful book. If you’re looking for a read to pick you up, draw you in, and not let you out of its amazing hold until you reach THE END, SWEET ALIBI is the one for you. Go ahead and add it to your TBR, but don’t wait too long to dive in, because it is going to be one of your favorite reads lately, I guarantee.

Synopsis

All three books are included in this edition.

 

BLINDSIGHT (Part One)

I want her.

She thinks I need her.

What she doesn’t know is she needs me more.

 

I’m hiring her to protect her.

To save her life.

To make her beg.

 

Because her big brown eyes make my d-ck pound and the thought of leaving her to the wolves makes my heart bleed. But the past is colliding with an out of focus present that’s on course to a fatal future. Unless I can beat fate at its own game.

 

 

BLINDSIGHT (Part Two)

She and I were far from chance.

Our first meeting orchestrated.

Our forever ill-fated.

 

Because I’m her enemy.

I’m her savior.

I’m her nightmare Romeo.

 

She’ll thank me at the end of this, and if she doesn’t, I’ll force her to beg.

 

 

BLINDSIGHT (Part Three – only available in the complete bundled series )

The web of secrets surrounding Hunter and Erin begins to unravel in the gripping final installment of the Blindsight series…

 

The only woman I’ve ever loved: taken.

The only man I’ve ever called a father: wanted.

 

I was hired to watch her, tasked myself with protecting her, and now I have to save her.

I tried to be her Romeo, but despite everything the past crashed into our lives like wild thunder.

She begged me to run, I begged her to stay, until a force greater than both of us took over.

 

Betrayal comes in threes, and the other shoe’s about to drop.

Excerpt

“Ah, I see the little bird has awoken.” A voice echoed and my eyes sliced around the room looking for the owner. A soft chuckle was the only response as my eyes, wide and watery, refused to focus. Shadowy fluorescent light bounced off every surface.

“Where am I?” I choked, desperate for the answer while dreading hearing the voice again. My head felt heavy and confused, reminding me of the syringe they’d plunged into my arm when they’d taken me.

“Let’s find out just what you know, shall we, Princess?” The word turned my heart cold. Froze it to stone in two syllables. I didn’t need to see the face in the door to know who it belonged to.

Him.

Bile rose in my throat as my eyes shuttered closed in my only mental defense. I was ready for a blow, a bat, maybe a crowbar. Guys like him liked to leave a calling card on your face. What happened in the following minutes would almost kill me. One fragile piece at a time.

“When did you call the Feds?” John Ellis Walker, living embodiment of terror on the streets of Chicago, sneered at me with a crooked grin and chipped teeth.

“I didn’t,” I grit, my eyes remaining closed.

His hot breath washed across my face. “Bullshit.” He caught my elbow and tightened. Pain seared through my shoulder when he twisted my arm in warning.

“I didn’t. It wasn’t Hunter either,” I defended lamely. This was not the plan. Think fast, Erin. Think survival. “He didn’t have anything to gain by doing that, and neither did I. I don’t know anything.”

“You had everything to gain.” The pad of his thumb touched my chin and worked my jaw to the side before swiping his thumb across his tongue and smearing saliva down my cheek. “Wouldn’t want you dirty for when Prince Charming gets here.” He stalked back to the doorway.

My prince. Could Hunter really get here? Oh God, JW had taken me to get to Hunter. Of course that was the reason. A sob fell from my throat as I made a sad attempt at shuffling across the damp concrete on my knees.

“Why the hurry to leave, Princess? Fun’s only begun.” JW hauled me up by my shackled wrists and plopped me in a rusted metal chair, taking me by surprise and pressing a hunk of cold metal at my throat before I could blink. His rough hand slid through my snarled hair and gave a sharp tug. He stuck his nose against my ear and inhaled, the chilled metal still dancing across my skin as he took his fill of my scent. “No wonder Clu’s puttin’ it to ya. He’s got a thing for the sweet ones.” He tapped the metal at my jugular before pulling away. “Where the fuck did that snake you married put the money?” JW asked again, then released me with an angry jerk, taking a step back and tapping the barrel of the gun under my chin to raise my eyes to his. They fluttered open, my confidence boosted with the realization that if JW thought I knew where the money was, he wouldn’t kill me.

“I have some ideas,” I answered, holding his golden, serpent-like gaze. JW kicked at the legs of my chair causing it to wobble and tip to the cold floor, leaving me even more banged and bruised.

“Cut the games. Just like your slut mother.” JW kicked at the chair again. “I hope you don’t know where my money is, Princess, because if I find out you do, I’m pulling your pretty teeth out one by one.” His dank breath filtered through my nostrils and curdled my stomach.

“He’s here,” the other man I’d met at the VIP lounge only weeks ago boomed. He must have recognized me. How could he not? But then again, I probably wouldn’t recognize myself after lying on a grungy concrete floor, my body caked with grime and bruises.

“Perfect.” JW stalked from the room, slamming the heavy door as he went. I heard the scrape of an industrial lock announcing my dim fate. I looked around the room, spotting a window filtering a minuscule amount of daylight in. But the walls were at least ten feet tall, no way could I reach. I swallowed the ache in my throat as my gaze cast around the room. Nothing. There was nothing. My stomach turned, and just as I thought they could have at least left me a waste basket to throw up in, a gunshot echoed through the long tunnel of the building.

“Oh God.” No. No. No. My stomach dropped and I bolted to the steel door and pressing an ear to it. “Hunter. Please. Not. Hunter.” I sobbed and prayed in equal turn, waiting for anything to betray the truth of the situation.

Nothing. Cold, empty silence. My stomach burned and rolled before I slumped to the floor on my knees in reckless sobs.

Please, not Hunter.

4 Star

Tracey’s Review

Book 1
Is there such a thing as coincidence? As Fate, stepping in when most needed? It would seem like it for Erin Warner, whose life changes completely when a chance meeting with a sexy and intense man results in a dream job. But Erin quickly learns that Hunter Ellis has his secrets, and that they may be better left undiscovered.

BLINDSIGHT, the first book in a three-part serial by author Adriane Leigh, is quite something. Action-packed from the get-go, from the mysterious prologue that had me wondering what I was in for, to the crazy ride that is Erin and Hunter’s relationship from the moment that they meet on a busy street corner, this book is a whirlwind.

The chemistry between Erin and Hunter is immediate; he affects her like no one else has. The dance between them is heady and erotic, and leaves no question as to how they feel about each other. They both realize that getting involved may be risky, but seem unable to help themselves. Lucky for us, because this is steamy beyond belief. Throw in the mysterious voice of Erin’s ‘watcher,’ and the secrets that both Erin and Hunter have, and you have BLINDSIGHT, a book that I just could not put down.

The killer part here, though? We are left with a cliff-hanger and a half. Some serious stuff is about to be revealed, then BAM!, ‘to be continued.’ I cannot WAIT to see what Adriane has in store for us in the next two parts, and am anxiously awaiting getting my hot little hands on them. Looking for a sexy, fast-paced, ‘what in the world is going on here?!’ read? Add this 4-star read to your TBR and settle in for the ride.

Book 2
Oh.My.Gosh. Adriane Leigh. This cliffhangery ending stuff is killing me! BLINDSIGHT: PART TWO picks up right where the action in Part One (ALSO a cliffhanger, I might add!) ends. And, the ride, oh, the ride.

Some of the questions that arose in the first book are answered here, as we begin to see more of what makes up Hunter, the man of mystery that swept in and took Erin on the ride of her life in Book One.

This book is just as full of hot steamy scenes and growing feelings between Erin and Hunter, and more mystery is woven, as the action builds to pressure point before leaving me going, Nooooo!

Come on, Adriane, don’t keep us waiting. 4.5 action packed, steamy, oh, no, you didn’t stars for BLINDSIGHT: PART TWO. Grab it, read it, and hold on!

Book 3
The wait is finally over, and the BLINDSIGHT series is complete. Adriane Leigh has really brought it in this series, rounding out the trilogy with the third and final (maybe?) book. Left with a heart-pounding cliffhanger in Book 2, I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see how things played out for Hunter and Erin in Book 3. And, let me tell you, there was no disappointment here, because the drama, the nail-biting action, the over-the-top sexiness are all back in full force, and it made for a great wrap-up to this story.

I really appreciated how Adriane wrote the evolution of the relationship between Erin and Hunter, and how Erin emerges as a much stronger and savvier character by the end of the book. In the previous two installments, I saw her as a little more helpless, swept along by the strength and passion of Hunter’s alpha male energy, but, by the time all of the action unfolds here, she’s more than holding her own.

All of the questions introduced in the first two books are answered here, finally. The epilogue wraps things up nicely, while still leaving room for future adventures for Erin and Hunter (are you reading this, Adriane?!). This book, along with the rest of the series, is a solid 4-star riveting, compelling, intrigue-filled ride, one that you should be adding to your TBR.
