Game of Love Series 
by Khardine Gray 

Ace of Hearts 
Game of Love Book 1 


She was the innocent I was meant to resist, but she feels like my last chance at redemption.

She’s the beautiful fiery angel.
You look at her and you forget… everything.
Past, present and future. You just forget.

I’ve been called many things in my life.
Marine, agent, hacker, thief, killer…
Now I’m a fraud.
I’m here for one single reason – to steal from her father, the Vegas Mafia King .
Eliminate him if I need to.
Greedy mobster…he got caught up in something above him and dragged her in too.

I dropped my guard and got lost in her.
Mind, body, and soul.

The angel drew me in at hello.
With a body made for serious sinning, Jia Marchesi reminded me of what I wanted and never had.
I want her to be mine.
But… the more I dig the more secrets I find.
The more I realize what’s going on is above me too.
Danger and death are on the horizon.

Sorry, Bellezza. You got dealt a cruel hand.
I should have stayed away from you..
You were my big mistake. I was always a threat.
In the end, there’s no way this will end well.
Not for me
Nor for you.

Please note Ace of Hearts is book 1 in the Game of Love series. This book ends with a Cliffhanger. Xander and Jia's story continues in Tease of Spades and Queen of his Heart. 


Tease of Spades 
Game of Love Book 2 


I wasn’t sure which was worse.
Being with her or being without her.
Both seemed to carry its own weight of grief.
Maybe it would have been better to just leave, get out of her life and she’d never see me again.
I’d shared several moments with this woman I shouldn’t have had.

She’d looked desperate to me. I just didn’t know at the time what the desperate was.
The desperation was to be saved.
Freedom.
People like that were best left alone if you couldn’t help them.
Not only had I potentially blown the mission, but I’d made her life worse just for being with her.
Now all hell was breaking loose.
My enemy has returned and he knows she’s my weakness.
It’s only a matter of time before heads will roll.

Please note Tease of Spades is book 2 in the Game of Love series. This book ends with a Cliffhanger. Pretty please read the books in order for your enjoyment of this series. Xander and Jia's story continues in Queen of his Heart. 


Queen of His Heart 
Game of Love Book 3 


Better to be on the right hand of the devil than in his path.

I stole the mafia princess and lost her all in one breath.
She was the innocent in the mix.
I broke every rule in the book with her.
I didn’t just involve her in a top-secret mission, I got involved with her.
It made me reckless and I slipped up.

I had to make the deal with the devil if I wanted a chance to get her back.
Death and danger are on the horizon.
Jia belongs to me and I won’t allow her to die.

Please note Queen of His Heart is book 3 in the Game of Love series.
This book is the continuation of Xander and Jia's story. Pretty please read the books in order for your enjoyment of this series. xx

Book Series Feature & #Giveaway ~ Shifter Kings Nashville Series by Holly Gunn ~ #PNR #ParanormalRomance


Shifter Kings Nashville Series
by Holly Gunn

Genre: Paranormal Romance


Lion 
Shifter Kings Nashville Book 1 
by Holly Gunn 


She’s a down on her luck barback who’s had it with lions.
He’s a lion king who has thirty days to find his queen.
Life’s a rollercoaster, though, and it’s full of surprising turns ...

Lion, the future king of the lion prides in the U.S., only has thirty days to find his future queen and secure their fate. But Lion has his work cut out for him.

Jules has had it with shifters, and male lions in particular. She doesn’t need a man, even if he is a king, to mess up her life any more than her brother already has. Tired of being used and manipulated by others, she’s not just going to roll over and think of England.

It’s a good thing Lion’s not a slam-bam-thank-you-ma’am, Tennessee man. Our king’s about to show his queen that while life can sometimes be a bit of a rollercoaster ride, the best thing you can do is lock in tight and throw your hands in the air—and live.

Warning: sweet, sexy, novella-length read ahead... 




Spider
Shifter Kings Nashville Book 2


He's a redneck with a tribe to lead.
She's a wedding planner who wants her HEA.
Two souls. Lots of differences.
But they'll find a home in each other...

Spider is a family man down to his core. He’s spent his life trying to live up to the expectations of being the future king of the Arachnid tribe. Now that his tattoo’s gone dark—it’s time to find his queen. Only he’s got cousins he needs to get down from trees, long-lost relatives popping out of the woodwork, a shady construction company cheating his people of their land, and a queen who’s more designer than she is redneck.

Sugar, and spice, and everything nice …

Chantelle is a Beaumont. Through and through. Or at least that’s the image she’s taught herself to project to the world. Done with trying to be perfect, she wants a family, a home, and for her king to show her there’s more to living than working and trying to be someone she’s not. More than this, she needs to believe in herself and that she has something to offer as queen.

Chantelle and Spider might start off rocky but they both know that the steady in life doesn’t come easy. Steady comes when two people are together and showing each other that home isn’t a place, work isn’t your life, and what they offer each other goes deeper than material things. The real steady, as both Spider and Chantelle have learned, is in laughter and antics and knowing to your soul that the person you’re with is your home.

Warning: Short, sassy, sexy read ahead . . . 



Shark
Shifter Kings Nashville Book 3


A charming nerd who’s new in town.
A surfer dude king looking for his queen.
Magic is about to happen.

Shark Irons has a problem. He’s supposed to be finding his queen. He’s supposed to be sliding into his role as king. What he is doing is dealing with a rash of shark attacks taking place in the Cumberland River. Humans are in danger. His shark shifters’ swimming holes are being closed down. And Shark’s worried he’s already failing as king.

Lexie Leland is a nerd. In fact, she’s in Nashville for a Comic-Con when she finds herself in a bind. Who should save her but a magical being, of course? Only Lexie isn’t buying what Shark is selling.

It’s a good thing these Nashville Shifter Kings know how to convince a woman he’s in it for the long haul.

Shark’s got a lot on his plate, but he’s about to find that Lexie is his complement in all things. He asked for a queen, and he’s getting one with fire, with sass, and with more power than he ever thought possible.

Warning: Nerdy, sassy, sexy novella-length read ahead... 



Wolf
Shifter Kings Nashville Book 4


A future king who doesn’t want to be.
A witch with a heart-breaking past.
And secrets neither can keep for long ...

Seraphina Raynes has had a lifetime of avoidance. At every turn, she’s pushed herself into the next challenge and over the next hurdle. And she always but always survives. Until she finds herself climbing a mountain she doesn’t think she can handle alone.

Wolf Yaeger has never wanted to be king. He wants a quiet life in the mountains with a human mate who will give him some pups and who likes to get her some.

The minute he claps eyes on Sera, he knows she’s the human for him. Now, he’ll stop at nothing to make her his.

There’s just one tiny something he doesn’t know yet, and it's a doozie of a revelation he might not be able to get past …

Warning: Sassy, sweet, angsty, SEXY shifter novella-length read ahead... 



Poison
Shifter Kings Nashville Book 5


He’s a bad boy with a past he can’t shake.
She’s a good girl who’s sick of drawing the short straw.
They’re obviously a match made in shifter heaven—if only she can forgive his heartbreaker history.

Two months ago, Poison Yaeger had the best night of his life—then he ran. Now, he’s set to be king of the wolves and, the once bad boy knows whom he wants as his queen … the same woman he left alone in bed two months earlier.

Callie Hartwood, better known as Doc has always done the “right” thing. Being kidnapped changes a girl, though, and she makes a promise to herself. Her vow: She's done being a good girl. She's not a dog to be praised for rolling over. She’s a puma shifter. She’s got claws. And she’s no longer afraid to use them.

She’s going to be bad.

And Poison wants to show her how. His lessons, however, aren’t just for fun. He intends to win his queen, and he wants Callie to know that he may be a bad boy, but he’s the only man for her.

A good girl + a bad boy + a psycho witch + sexy kings + sassy queens (phew!) = a Shifter Kings Nashville finale to remember!

Warning: Sassy, sexy, sweet, and angsty novella-length series finale! (Don't worry, L.A. is next …) 



I'm the proud momma to a golden retriever named Charlie, two tortoises named Jake and John, a frog named Toad, and a gopher snake. The latter is my girl, Holly Jr. There's also the fact that I'm a thunderstorm-loving, front porch-sitting, hot cocoa-drinking, beauty product-hoarding, self-proclaimed environmentalist who just happens to write erotic romance. Saddle up, sweetheart. I've got a slew of shifters, bad boys, dirty men, and smart, sexy babes to get you started!

About the Book:

When librarian Charlie Harris' daughter is falsely accused of murder, he and his faithful feline Diesel must leap forward to crack the case in this all-new installment in the New York Times bestselling series.

Charlie Harris has sworn off investigating murder and mayhem after a recent close call. Instead, he's delighted to cheer on his daughter, Laura, who's starring in a production of Careless Whispers. The theater department at Athena College is debuting the play written by a fledgling playwright with local connections and Charlie's son-in-law, Frank Salisbury, will be calling the directorial shots.

Laura is upset to learn that Luke Lombardi, an overbearing actor she knew from her time in Hollywood will also be taking part in the production as a guest artist. Lombardi arrives with an entourage in tow and promptly proceeds to annoy everyone involved with the production. When he collapses and dies on stage, after drinking from a glass Laura handed him, she becomes the chief suspect in his murder.

Charlie knows his daughter is innocent, and he's not going to let anyone railroad his little girl. So, despite his intentions to put his amateur sleuthing days behind him, Charlie has to take center stage, and with Diesel's help, shine a spotlight on the real killer.
