Knight
Kisses

Athina Paris
Genre:
Contemporary Romance 
 
After
losing her mother to cancer, Gabrielle swears off love. Because
loving hurts too much when things go wrong. Then, she travels to
Africa to meet her father – a man whose existence she was oblivious
to. Before long, there is also a baby sister to look after, and
intuitively she knows that she needs to protect her. Promptly, there
is another tragedy, and more than ever, Gabrielle realises how wise
she is to lock away her heart. But that was before she met Jonathan
Knight, a man who amuses and confuses her, and Paul, his best friend,
who is just as smart and funny. Through an unfortunate sequence of
events, she finds herself in a troublesome situation, but being who
she is, she tries to handle it alone, unwittingly sinking into a
morass of danger. A solution comes in the form of Paul, who makes a
harebrained suggestion, which Jonathan – for reasons of his own –
grabs and presents her with the providential arrangement.
Instinctively, she declines the proposal, but Jonathan is persuasive
and paints a wonderful picture of security. She accepts out of need,
but soon, Jonathan’s ulterior motives unravel, and nothing is as it
should be. But she can’t disclose the truth, for her secret could
undo the safe future she is trying to create for her little sister.

Athina
Paris lives in South Africa but spent her formative years in
Mozambique, where she was born and went to school. Years in convents
and boarding schools prompted a deep curiosity and the need to
liberate her mind, which quickly developed into an avid interest in
reading and storytelling and led to a lifelong obsession with the
written word and books. By fifteen she had read most of the classics,
discovered ancient civilizations and became fascinated with various
mythologies; a love she has kept to this day.

 

 

Raised
in a culture where meddling is seen as ‘caring’, she became a
spectator of human nature. Quiet and shy, she preferred recording
conduct rather than participating in what she calls familial mass
hysteria, and so built a treasure-trove of relationship observations
from which she eventually drew backgrounds for the characters in her
romantic novels.

 

She
studied Interior Design, but soon felt the pull of her dormant talent
and turned to Creative Writing, as she realised the significance of
those notebooks packed with ideas. She soon followed it with
Scriptwriting.

 

 

Set
in faraway and exotic places, Athina’s epic romantic work takes her
characters on voyages of self-discovery while dealing with
catastrophic love lives and an imperfect world.

 

A
stint as a high school English teacher polished her skills. However,
she has recently vacated the position to concentrate on her
professional goals of writing, editing and proofreading.

The Unmistakable Scent of Gardenias and the spirits that would rather remain undisturbed

Wednesday, October 5th, 2016

Denise is a Southern girl who has lived in Louisiana all her life, and yes, she has a drawl. She has a wonderful husband and two incredible children, who not only endure her writing moods, but also encourage her to indulge her writing passion. Besides writing romantic suspense, she enjoys traveling, reading, and cooking.

Accounting is a skill she has learned to earn a little money to support her writing habit. She wrote her first story when she was a teen, seventeen handwritten pages on school-ruled paper and an obvious rip-off of the last romance novel she had read. She’s been writing off and on ever since, and with more than a few full-length manuscripts already completed, she has no desire to slow down.

Q&A With the Author:

1.  Describe yourself in 50 words or less.
I’ve lived in Louisiana all her life, and
yes, I have a drawl. I’m an accountant two days a week, and a writer every single
moment of my life. With so many story ideas crowding my mind, I have no desire
to mute the voices in my head.
2. What do you love most in the world?
I love my family more than anything. Without their encouragement, I would have never dared to pursue my dreams. They are my heart and soul.
3. What do you fear most?
I’ve never been afraid of dying, but I am
afraid of not living long enough to do everything I want to do before I die.

Content with the direction her life takes…

The temptation to earn a sweet payday and collect enough money to start her own interior design business is too much opportunity for Sophia Cannon to ignore, but working for her new client, Les Wakefield, is like working for a creepy stalker. He seems to be everywhere she goes.

Until trouble walks around the corner and into her life again…

Dylan Hunter almost turns down the Wakefield Manor restoration job until Les Wakefield tells him Sophia is the interior designer hired to oversee furnishing the old plantation house. Sophia has been the ghost in his life since the day she left him, haunting his heart with her memory every day and every night.

Stirring up more than just the spirits of the dead…

Sophia and Dylan fight with each other until a much bigger threat puts both their lives in danger. Discovering that generations of Wakefields have restored the plantation only to disappear months after moving in to the manor house stirs up spirits that would rather remain undisturbed.

Can love survive the long nights at Wakefield Manor with the unmistakable scent of gardenias hanging so heavily in the air?

Snippet:
The dirt track wound through a stand of
centuries-old oak trees hung with draping wisps of gray-blue-green Spanish
moss. Like dark sentinels with drawn swords, the trees arched their limbs over
the newlyweds as they drove deeper and deeper into the heart of the plantation.
On a humid, south Louisiana evening, the moisture-heavy air rushed through the open windows and expanded in the interior of the car. A trail of sweat rolled down Celia Wakefield’s backbone. She
shivered as the first glimpse of the house came into view, and the meal she’d
consumed miles up the road rumbled in the lower regions of her stomach. Despite
the heat, chill bumps prickled on her forearms. An inexplicable reaction, really.
She glanced at her husband Les out of the corner of her eye and cringed. An intense tightness defined his jaw line, which meant he was in one of his dark moods.
His fingers curled around the steering wheel. “There’s no telling what condition the main house will be in when we get there.”
He had warned her of its disrepair repeatedly since the day he first told her that he’d inherited the old Wakefield Plantation. It was as if he was apologizing in advance for the state of their first home. She had, of course, wanted something newer, but beggars couldn’t be choosers. She was lucky Les Wakefield had found her appealing enough to overlook her past.
