if she’s worth everything I’m about to lose.
I came to
this town to escape the claws of my past. A simple life in a small town—I just
want to live under the radar and blend in. I was doing just that until Knox
caught my eye. They say when you know, you know—that we can’t help who we fall
in love with. The rules are pretty simple, so why am I breaking them all? I’m a

He’s haunted by one mistake…

Kane Highwater has been on the run for over a dozen years, since he was sixteen. And every step of the way he’s carried the weight of what happened the day he left Last Stand. He’d reacted in fear and anger, and it had cost him everything.

He stirs her heart in a way she never imagined…

Lark Leclair admires the Highwater clan for many things, including how they’ve never stopped searching for their missing brother. As a former Child Protective Services worker, she understands better than most why he’d run. But when she spots Kane in a crowd at a national reining competition where her friend — his sister — is competing, it will take all of her experience, compassion and instincts to convince him to stay.

Their attraction is immediate, but Kane is certain he can never regain his place in his legendary family. Can Lark convince him that with her by his side, it’s not too late for a fresh start?

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Fantastic! Amazing storytelling! I loved everything about this all-the-feels novel!

Most readers have that one special book they are anticipating. I actually have several, however none has had me as impatient with the release of Lone Star Homecoming.. This is the last Highwater sibling to have his story told, to finally have his happy ending. And in my opinion, there is no hero, for me, that I  have read of this year that deserves it more. If you read any of the previous books in the Texas Justice series then you already know why I feel that way.

Kane Highwater has been missing, on the run for thirteen years due to a family tragedy that he blamed himself for. I won’t go into details here but I will remind you that in these amazing books we read, situations are often not how they appear. But for Kane, he saw the situation only one way. He lived and struggled for a long thirteen years believing he was guilty. Maybe he was a bit. Maybe he wasn’t. This author will have you loving and even protecting Kane no matter the outcome because he was so deserved of good things. Thirteen years of believing a certain way will play havoc on your mind when all the truths are revealed. Sometimes the truth is hard to deal with mentally and as a result, Kane was an emotional wreck, an intensely complex character. He couldn’t trust the love he was given by his family; Kane was in fear of what would come to end to the years of torment he was gone.

This book, or I should say this series has amazing characters. I love all the Highwaters and their significant others. Additionally, in this last book of the series, I appreciated the presence of everyone, the love and loyalty they all had for Kane. I especially loved Lark Leclair.

Lark was in social services by profession. She was caring, loving and protective of those she helped, especially children. When Lark finds herself face to face with the missing Highwater, one look at him opens all kinds of feelings. First and foremost, she was protective of Kane and became his liaison with the family. Lark knew that if they weren’t careful, Kane would run. And this time, if he ran, they had no doubt it would be for good. As I mentioned earlier, I won’t give away any spoilers. Every second of this angsty conclusion is worth the wait. If you’re like me, then you’ve been waiting for Kane for what feels like forever. Also, if you’re like me, you will be thrilled with the resolution.

One more aspect I’d like you to know is that while this book wasn’t lengthy, all the feels were there. Nothing felt rushed to me. I loved the anticipation of what was to come and nothing I’ve read in recent months left me feeling so relieved and whole-hearted than Lone Star Homecoming.

I definitely recommend this book. While it can be read on its own, I truly believe you will have an even better reading experience if you read the previous books in the series. Even if you just read the two books prior you will love everything about Kane Highwater’s happily-ever-after.

This is my honest and unbiased review.  Thank you for taking the time to read it!

#NewRelease ~ “Treachery” Series: Antihero Inferno #1, by Author Lily White, Genre: Romantic Suspense is Available NOW!! #AuthorLilyWhite @lilywhitebooks @GiveMeBooksPR

Title: Treachery
Series: Antihero Inferno #1
Author: Lily White
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: May 27, 2020
Photographer: Michelle Lancaster
Cover Design: Lori Jackson Designs

Ninth Circle.
Also known as Tanner Caine.
He is a temptation with cold, dark eyes. 
A man with a seductive smirk and a body built for pure sin. 
The linchpin of a group of wealthy bad boys known as the Inferno.
A dark presence that repels as much as he attracts, Tanner is the poisoned apple I want to bite even when I know it will destroy me.
Our story started in college, but I ran from him so far I believed I was safe.
I should have known he’d find me eventually.
I should have known that nobody escapes.
He has me in his sights again with an offer I can’t pass up.
I know better than to make a deal with the Devil. 
Not unless I’m willing to pay his sensual price…
(Treachery is Book One of the Antihero Inferno Series. Nine Standalone novels. Nine dangerous men. Nine unrepentant sinners you’ll hate to love.)
Some monsters are frightening because they kill and maim without remorse. Some are scary because they get in your head and make you doubt everything you believe you know about the world around you. 

Tanner is terrifying because it takes nothing at all for him to set his sights on you, to ignite his anger and draw his attention. And instead of simply destroying you physically or mentally, he is the type of monster who will alter your entire world and leave you struggling to breathe while watching it all come tumbling down. 

He leaves you alive to witness the chaos. He leaves you drowning while he storms off, satisfied that there isn’t so much as a shred of what you once had left for you to cling onto.

Maybe monster is the wrong word. 

It’s too simple. 

Too ordinary. 

Other men are monsters. 

Lesser men are monsters. 

Not Tanner.

Tanner is a maelstrom. 

He frightens me now even more than he had at Yale. I try to lie to myself and swear the fear has everything to do with the money I will lose. 

But there’s something else, something deeper, something shadowed and burning with fierce carnal desire that lingers like a fog within my core. 

Memories collide with the present, the aching I feel every time Tanner is nearby. 

Because it hadn’t been easy to avoid him so many years ago. 

It had been a fight, a war, a bloody battle occurring inside me.
Lily White is a romance writer who likes to dabble on the taboo side of eroticism. She is most known for her Masters Series, Target This, Wishing Well, and Asylum.

The feud
between Weston Lockwood and me started at the altar.
neither of us attended the wedding, and the nuptials happened decades before
either of us was born.
grandfathers had been best friends and business partners, at least up until my
grandfather’s wedding day—when his bride-to-be blurted out she couldn’t marry
him because she was also in love with Weston‘s grandfather.
The two men
spent years fighting over Grace Copeland, who also happened to be their third
business partner.  But in the end, neither man could steal half of her
heart away from the other.
they all went their separate ways.  Our
grandfathers married other women, and the two men became one of the biggest
business rivals in history.
Our fathers
continued the family tradition of feuding.
And then Weston and I did, too.
For the
most part, we kept as much distance as possible.
Until the
day the woman who started the feud died—and unexpectedly left one of the most
valuable hotels in the world to our grandfathers to share.
Now I’m
stuck in a hotel with the man I was born to hate, trying to unravel the mess
our families inherited.
As usual,
it didn’t take long for us to be at each other’s throats.
Lockwood was everything I hated: tall, smart, cocky, and too gorgeous for his
own good.  We were fire and ice. 
But that
shouldn’t be an issue. Our families were used to being at war. There was just
one minor problem, though.   Every time
Weston and I fought, we somehow wound up in bed.

She holds my hand as we walk, squeezing it a little. It feels natural,
but then again, weird.
This girl—woman, now, I suppose—she has been off limits to me for so
long. It’s really hard to get that out of my head. And sometimes, when I look
at Maggie, I see Indie.
It’s just… weird.
Indie doesn’t lead me to the front porch. She takes me around the side.
“Where are we going?”
“To spy on them, of course.”
“Ahh, I don’t know.”
She stops us on the side of the house in front of the office window.
“Stop being a baby. Don’t you want to be with McKay?”
And this is weird too. Since when do I talk about my feelings with Indie?
With anyone, actually?
“You’re really trying hard to find an excuse, aren’t you?”

want to be with him.”
“So what’s the problem?”

stay here. I’ll spy.”
She turns away and continues walking along the side of the house, then
looks over her shoulder one last time before she disappears around the corner.

When I round the corner, Indie has her face pressed against the glass of
the family room window. The only lights on inside are the ones under the

“It’s kinda hot,” Indie whispers.
I have to agree. It kinda is. But it’s a lot of other things too.
They are both shirtless. And I’m not gonna lie, Donovan is just as nice
to look at as McKay.
That’s not the only reason it’s hot though. This looks like a real

down McKay’s chest, then down his ridiculous sixty-four-pack abs and rests on
