“I love...that elevator,” she said.

With a sleepy smile and a full heart, he turned his head and kissed into her soft hair. “Aw, Red. I love that elevator, too.”
Laura Kaye, Hearts in Darkness

“Caden let out his own moan when her lips pressed against the skin in front of his ear. She exhaled roughly. The rush of her breath over his skin brought goose bumps to his neck.
He trailed soft kisses across her cheek until he found her lips.
And then he couldn’t go slow anymore.
And neither could she.”
Laura Kaye, Hearts in Darkness

“You're freaking gorgeous!”
Laura Kaye, Hearts in Darkness

Oh no, Angela! How did I miss your message? So sorry! If you're still interested, you might try North of Need--it's the first in my new series and has a contemporary feel even though it's fantasy. Happy New Year! And thanks for your message!

Kelly Hi Laura,
Thanks for the add! I've really enjoyed chatting with you about Forever Freed and trading cards. I was told by a friend there will be a follow up book to Freed. Is this true ? I checked your website and there's no mention of a sequel.

Have a great weekend Laura!

Hi Kelly! I intend to publish a sequel, but I don't have any firm release date information to offer. However, Lucien is pretty bossy in my head some days, so I do plan to get to it eventually! Thanks so much for chatting with ME! I enjoy it, too! ;)

Hi Laura,
I just noticed this comment. Sorry about that.
I'm very excited to hear there will be a sequel to Lucien's book. Lucien's a bossy one, is he? That's so funny! He doesn't seem like the bossy type!

I just started Hearts in Darkness today and it's just as incredible and sexy as I'd hoped it would be. Caden is the yummiest!

Thanks for filling me in on the sequel and for writing such wonderful books. :)

Lilah Chavez Hi Laura, first and foremost I want to say I LOVED Hearts in Darkness. I've reread it so many times, its truly a lovely story.

So I noticed you have a new release One Night With a Hero. I have a Nook and I've gone through the Barnes and Noble site, its nowhere to be found. Is it going to be released with them too and when?

O_o

Thanks

message 49: by Timothy

Timothy Cook It's very good of you to accept my friend request. Though I must say that paranormal/romance novels have not typically been my taste in literature, it is obvious that you're a great teller of tales, and I respect that. I do love to read, and my own tastes are remarkably eclectic. But so far my own writing, though not paranormal, has so far been medical fantasy, which may, in fact, be something of a "new" genre - I only know of a few other authors who have even tried it, and with limited success. So who knows...


message 50: by Steph

Steph Thank you so much for accepting my friend request. I feel honoured to be part of your circle of friends.
