Did you all hear and see the good news about one of my favorite authors, Lili St. Germain??
She signed a publishing contract with HarperCollins Publishers and I'm beyond happy and proud of her.
It's no secrete how much I love reading her Gypsy Brother series and she's always on my pimping radar. Her short installments are fast paced, thrilling, heart-wrenching painful but also beautiful. It's like watching one of my favorite TV series Sons Of Anarchy - I can't seem to get enough of it!
Thus, I'm happy to introduce to you her new series called: CARTEL. It's is basically a prequel serial of the Gypsy brothers - yeah, you might guess correctly. We get to know the whole back story of Dornan and what happened years ago; furthermore, how he became the villain we all loath so much and many more untold secretes.
Unlike the Gypsy Brother serial, the CARTEL books will be full length novels and it's going to be a trilogy. All books of her new serial are up for pre-orders on Amazon.
Introducing the new serial
How much is a life worth?
I grew up in Colombia, the daughter of a wealthy drug lord. I lived a life of extravagance, until one day a drug run went horribly wrong and everything came crashing down around us.
I was given away. A payment for a debt. The Gypsy Brothers Motorcycle Club became my new owners, and I did everything I could to survive.
But falling in love with the man who owned me wasn't part of the plan...
Mariana and Dornan struggle to define their twisted relationship amid the wreckage of their warring families. With their forbidden love built on a foundation of lies, it's only a matter of time before everything they've built comes crashing down around them.
EMPIRE: BOOK 3
The irresistible conclusion to the Cartel trilogy
Doesn't it sound like a suspenseful, gritty, kick-ass biker trilogy? I can't wait to get my greedy hands on it.
Also, if you're new to this author and her writing, here is her other serial -short installments that make your pulse beat so fast you might gonna pass out!
You can read this before or after the CARTEL trilogy!

Many of you don't know it but I really love paranormal books... and many more of you don't even know that Lili St. Germain has written a Vampire book that knocked me out of my socks - one of the best vamp books I've read in a very long time.
So if her biker books are not after your taste, I highly recommend this vampire book.
One of the best Vamp Books I've ever read - 5 Stars
This book was freaking awesome! If you are a PNR fan, add this IMMEDIATELY to your tbr or buy it right now! Jessica blew my mind with this one; never ever would I've guessed it'd be THIS awesome.
You know what was the best part in this book huh?? I'll tell you: No effing, unnecessary, cheesy romance that makes your head hurt, cringe, or roll your eyes! It's true, sometimes a book is much better without all the drama and lovey-dovey crap. Instead, Jessica focused to keep her story thrilling, exciting, by adding twists & turns, and some seriously mind-f@ckery. She kept on surprising me until the very last percentages and I often heard myself saying:Oh no...no, she didn't/wouldn't do that to the character...oh crap, she really did. Yeah,Jessica had not really any mercy for her characters *chuckles*, and I LOVED it -every piece of it.
"This is not a story about love. There is no happy ending. There is only darkness, and the struggle to avoid being consumed by it. This is a story about survival."
She made Mia fall out of a building, smash her head in, getting almost sucked dry, and some rough sex on the kitchen counter was there too- I was truly in PNR heaven :D
Ok, here a bit about the story.
Never ever had Mia thought she'd end up as one of those girls... those girls, you know, that got kidnapped, never seen or heard of again. Well, her cockiness put her exactly in this situation. She gets abducted and that's were her living hell begins.
"They're going to rape me and kill me and I am going to die. They're going to bury me in the woods ..."
She finds herself in a rotten room with a 'roommate',who's half dead, waiting to get put out of her misery like an old dog. This so-called roomy tells her that every 90days she usually has a new roommate...well crap huh, Mia thinks. BUT little did she know that the big bad Vamp boss has different plans with her.
" 'How long will you keep me?"I asked suddenly. he didn't have to think about it. 'Forever.' I believed him.' "
When Mia gets moved to another room, one of his Vamps,Ryan, she uses the only chance to escape... a chance that ended in a free fall, face first.
I still don't know if I love or hate Ryan. He's a special kind of twisted. His action didn't all really make sense to me, but I think that's what truly hooked me. I love weird characters, trying to figure them and their attentions out. It's still unclear what is really going on in this VERY old Vamps mind. He's a closed book, but he's the one who changed Mia's life forever. One minute he's sugar sweet and I wanna hug and squeeze him:
"You made me want to be a better person, he said in my head, ... You're the reason i'm leaving that life behind. I want to help you..."
oh and in the next minute I wanna flog him myself. He's unpredictable, a ticking time-bomb, and I loved the crap out of him. I'm dying to know what he truly thinks and feels for Mia.
Is he using her just as a tool for himself, having his own agenda or are his intentions pure and honest?? I do not know yet, but I'm eager to find that out in book 2 !
"I'll never leave you ... I'll never be afraid of you. *sigh, he really does know when to push the right button.
But Mia doesn't forget, he's the reason why she's here in the first place... why she died with 17.
It's a constant struggle and this book has some disturbing things going on, so be aware!!If you don't want to feel offended, then take a minute and put yourself in Mia's shoes - I know what she wants and did was cruel, but ask yourself: What have you done?
Nevertheless, I can't wait to get my hands on book 2!
If you're looking for a HEA, then don't pick this book up; if you're looking for a cheesy romance, then don't either; but if you're looking for a kick-ass Vamp book that makes you gasp, wonder, yell out loud and glues you to your kindle because you wanted to find out what's going on, then this is a must read!
This is NOT your typically come of age, NA/YA Vamp book -and thank f@ck for that!!
