From Kyra Davis, New York Times bestselling author of Just One Night, comes Book Two in the Pure Sin series that Sinfully Sexy is calling “angsty, intriguing, and off the charts sexy.” The beautiful, angry Bell has revenge in her heart and Lander Gable in her sights. She’s seduced her way into his arms with the intent to destroy his wealthy family. But now that she’s there, lust and passion have begun squeezing out that desire for vengeance. It’s a dangerous game Bell is playing, and sex, mystery, and lies are the most intriguing game pieces of all.
In case you haven't noticed, I don't fight to live, I fight to win. - Bell
You can't work for the devil without expecting to catch a little hell - Lorella
Heartache will age you faster than time ever can. - Jessica
There has never been a woman who has loved a Gable man who hasn't lived to regret it. Even when we don't mean to, we always end up crashing whatever heart has been handed to us. - Lander
An epic follow up to Deceptive Innocence, DANGEROUS ALLIANCE perfectly concluded Bell's quest for revenge against the Gable family. No thread was left untied and finally, hopefully, Bell can lay her warrior side to rest.
Bell's character has grown leaps and bounds in DANGEROUS ALLIANCE. What once was a girl clothed in bitterness, wrath, and vengeance has now softened and learned to trust, albeit grudgingly, a man who's part of the circle she wants to take down. I love Bell not because of her hard exterior but for her candor and vulnerability. Throughout the story we see her get afraid, indecisive, and falter in following through with her plans, it's her sheer determination that had her seeing what she set out to do decades before and that perseverance had me in awe.
Lander, this man had me nervous at one point. He was always a mystery to me, like Bell I'm kept guessing what kind of plot he's concocting in his head. Blood is thicker than water they say so until almost the end, I'm left questioning his motives. And I like Lander's ambiguous air, it's very realistic especially when its a David & Goliath story and the motivation revenge. Someone almost always doesn't play by the rules and usually its the person you thought you had on your side. Well Lander didn't disappoint me on that front but he sure had me biting my nails furiously.
Kyra Davis unraveled and twisted DANGEROUS ALLIANCE repeatedly until the lines between the good guys and the bad guys have been blurred. For a minute there I thought Bell is going to get screwed over yet again then her golden chariot came, hell froze over, and the Gables FINALLY got what's coming her way. If you're reading the series, you will NOT believe who lent Bell a helping hand.
KDavis' Pure Sin series is a total marvel. It's a story about sex, money, power, and combined how these three can be a weapon or a blessing, depends on how you look at it. The plot is very clever, it draws you in and really gets you invested in the story and engaged in the characters. Deceptive Innocence and DANGEROUS ALLIANCE are brilliant, satisfaction guaranteed!
Best gift you got for Christmas
We do Hanukkah but it's a toss up between the beautiful Helmut Lang sweater my husband got me and the Neil Gaiman books my son bought me. My boys know how to spoil me!

New Year's resolution
I don't think New Year's resolutions work so I choose a New Year's word. Last year it was progress, this year it's faith. Not just religious faith, but faith in myself and my work. Faith in the people around me who have earned my trust and who have my love. Faith in my own instincts and so on. If I don't have faith in what I'm doing, the people I work with or surrounded myself with then I'm living in conflict with my 2015 word and I'll need to either find that faith within myself or change the situation so my faith will be merited.
