Rebirth book cover
Blurb
Keaton Mara once lived through a hell created by the most detestable malefactor she has ever known. Ready to put the worst behind her, she returns to the life she once abandoned with Noah, the man who arguably broke her and saved her simultaneously, at her side.
Noah Oliver is on what he believes to be an ordained mission. Purging the evil from the world is a crucial element of his personal vendetta. The seduction of the tormented souls, enticing them to give in to their temptations, accompanies his central mission.
Without Noah’s sanctuary to keep his more depraved desires satisfied, and with Keaton attempting to adopt a normal life, Noah faces an inescapable conflict.
Can Noah keep the devil off his back, or will the individuals he has the grandest plans for witness his wrath when they fall from grace?

Excerpt
My body was riddled with agony; the slightest touch brought about an excruciating sensation. The pangs superseded any ability to have an orgasm. Whether he tasted me, or cradled me in his arms, and plunged into me—carefully, slowly, adoringly—there was no pleasure to be had.
Hovering over me, he watched me as a creeping look of satisfaction displayed itself across his face. He grabbed my chin, forcing me to look up at him as the tears steadily streamed down my cheeks. “I’ve never loved someone as much as I love you, and it’s why I hurt you so much.” He clasped his hand to my neck with hardly any pressure and pressed his lips to mine. “Circumstances have changed. My needs have changed. I need you to love me as much as I love you. No one ever has. I need you to love me, and I need you to become my wife.”
I was thrust immediately from one emotion to the next. I couldn’t dissect what I felt; I didn’t want to.
Stark naked, he pulled out of me and lifted off the bed, disappearing for a while. When he returned, he held two white pills in his hand and a glass of water in the other. Lifting my head through my winces, he placed the pills one by one into my open mouth and tipped the glass of water to my lips. He stared at me as I glared at him. His lips moved as though he had something to say but couldn’t find the right words to verbalize it.
On the brink of his phone ringing, he released me and reached across the bed to grab his phone. He became visibly agitated over whatever he saw.
Preparing to leave, he left me with his last words of the night before he disappeared, “There are only so many times you can pretend to be something you’re not before the real you cracks through. You need this, princess, as much as I need it. You breathe for me like I breathe for you. Stop holding your breath, thinking you will survive without me.” He delayed and dropped his chin. His eyes were shielded by his dark, thick eyelashes. His words were barely heard, “The devil’s whispers are quieter when I’m with you.”

The Sect (Wicked Trinity, Book #1)
the sect
Keaton Mara ran away from a life that had become a nightmare to live on the streets. While the location she now calls home is a dangerous place, she is protected by an unlikely friendship.
The streets provided her with the education she could've never earned from the prestigious university she attended. Regrettably, the term 'educated fool' becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Due to meeting a man with whom she shares a captivating chemistry with, her judgment is clouded, resulting in a fateful decision.
The consequence of trusting the prepossessing stranger results in her being stolen away to a place unknown. Her deceptive new surroundings are just as beautiful as the people who reside there. She discovers that it's a place where the culture of sex without limits or morals is their religion.
Keaton quickly begins to realize that the beautiful scenery serves to hide a very dark truth. The seductive and enigmatic man--who lured her there--desires to save her soul. His intentions are sinister, because saving her soul is synonymous with breaking her.
Because Keaton believes her soul was brutally stolen from her many years ago, she thinks he can't save (or destroy) something she no longer has.
She…was...wrong.

UNITED INDIE BOOK BLOG REVIEW

The Rebirth of Sin (Wicked Trinity #2)The Rebirth of Sin by Courtney Lane
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After reading The Sect, I knew I needed to know what happened with Keaton and Noah. I REALLY wanted a HEA, hey I'm that type of girl. However, after starting The Rebirth of Sin, I know my HEA might not happen. The Rebirth of Sin is dark like The Sect, if not darker. I honestly didn't think a series could get any darker but this one does.

The storyline is broken into 3 different parts, told by (mostly) Keaton and 2 other POVs. I thought I knew what I was getting into when I started however Courtney Lane, like in The Sect, totally messed with my head and I started doubting what I knew. This book is full of twists and when you think you know all another twist is added.

I was hoping Keaton would be stronger for her experience at Rebirth, but at times it was like she was lost and just took all the crap. Noah is the messed up individual but so much more! Braeden was the game changer, I thought I knew but I was completely blindsided with his character. I even thought about DNF at one point but kept going and glad I did.

If you want something dark, twisted and will keep you on your toes (or bent over a sawhorse) this is the book for you just read The Sect first so your head is already messed up when you read The Rebirth of Sin.

They say when you cross paths with a twin flame, everything changes. Matthias proved that to be true as he stripped me down, removing the illusion and baring every single truth I refused to look at.
