✩✩✩✩✩
This book is about a girl named Samantha. She has lost her memory of something that happened to her, and it was so traumatizing it has changed her entire personality. She lives in fear and she doesn't know why. Alex is a werewolf hunter who has been poisoned by werewolf venom, and it is slowly killing him. The last thing Alex expects is to run into Sam as he searches for a cure, and his lies start to unwind as he finds she is the key to his survival. The trouble is, he knows what happened to her, and why she can't remember. 
I found myself drawn irresistibly to this story. Samantha is so broken and fragmented as she struggles to survive with irrational fears, and memory loss. She tries to get help, but nothing works, and she walks around scared of men, dogs, and the dark for no reason. She moves to be with her aunt who practices magic, but whatever caused her memory loss causes her to forget anything supernatural that she sees. She just t…

What made you decide you wanted to write?

I didn’t actually want to write, my stories gave me an ultimatum about being written.  Personally, I like sleep and kind of need it, so I gave in after several months of arguing.

Who inspires you?

Genres: New Adult, Romance

In the span of seven days, Annabel Lee will lose her heart.

Kennedy Harrison, as reckless with life as Annabel is obsessed with order, never could commit to anything—not to a person, not to a job, not to a path. But he’s got a history with Annabel, and for once Kennedy doesn’t want to run. Determined to spend time with her before she leaves for college, Kennedy dares her to join him on a road trip to a music festival.

But Annabel’s got a plan. She’ll complete seven dares in seven days—if Kennedy applies for one writing internship per dare. Because Kennedy needs to be pushed just as much as she does.
What follows is a dizzying week of music, shady hotels, comical dares, and a passion neither one knew existed. But when it ends, Annabel and Kennedy will realize the biggest dare of all might just be fa…

Latte Girl
by Katia Rose
Publication date: August 17th 2017
Genres: Comedy, New Adult, Romance

Synopsis:
Hot coffee is a regular fixture in Hailey Warren’s life. Hot guys? Not so much.

Her grueling shifts at a cafe in the heart of the city’s business sector are rarely punctuated by anything special, so when the gorgeous heir to the security company next door strides into Hailey’s life, it feels like punctuation with a capital P (or D, depending on your preferred terminology).

Jordan Knox is enough to send her heart racing faster than a triple shot of espresso, and when the attraction proves to be mutual, no hidden corners or empty offices are safe from their game of cat and mouse.

But when she’s ready to drop the pretenses, Jordan continues to hold back, and Hailey realizes he’s been hiding secrets that could make whatever’s brewing between them boil over and burn.

‘Latte Girl’ is a full length, standalone novel, and the debut title from author Katia Rose.

Synopsis:
She is Hettie Alabama — unlikely, scarred, single-minded, and blood bound to a revolver forged by a demon.
