This week, Kendall Grey celebrates the re-release of her suspense/thriller, HOT-BLOODED, with a new cover, updated content, and a SALE!

If you’ve already read HOT-BLOODED, the plot is the same–nothing new or different there–but the book has been simplified to make it easier for readers to immerse themselves in the story.

For those who haven’t picked up HOT-BLOODED yet, you’re in luck! Not only do you get alternative content and a brand new, alpha female (MEOW!) cover created by Sara Eirew, but you also get a deal. HOT-BLOODED is on sale for just $.99 from now through Friday, September 19!

Here’s the description:

When an accident claims her mother’s life, Keahilani Alana must take charge of her family or risk losing what little they have. With an underage brother to care for and no education, she has few options. The door to a heavenly hellish opportunity opens when she stumbles upon a valuable secret her mother left behind on the slopes of an extinct volcano—a legacy that tempts the family with riches beyond their wildest dreams. But the secret is much bigger and more sinister than they realize. As reality unravels and exposes eerie truths about the siblings that should have remained deep under the mountain, Keahilani must either resist the call of her blood or risk being consumed by its darkness.

Blake Murphy is an assassin working to infiltrate a new Hawaiian cartel. His investigation reveals that Keahilani, the sexy surfing instructor he pegged as an informant, is much closer to the drug ring than he thought. Passion ignites between them in the bedroom, but their ironclad ties to opposing interests pit them against each other everywhere else.

When tensions reach the breaking point and her family is threatened, the only cure for Keahilani’s hot-blooded fury is a loaded clip with a body bag chaser.

* HOT-BLOODED is a suspense/thriller that contains drug use and graphic sex, language, and violence. The story is intended to entertain, not to condone or glorify illegal or immoral activities. This book is unsuitable for sensitive readers and those under the age of 18.

If you haven’t jumped aboard Keahilani and Blake’s crazy train, now’s the time to take the leap!

Kacey B says, “The twists, turns and surprises in this book keep you on the edge of your seat the entire time.” Aloha Dawn says, “Flawless writing with a kicka$$ heroine that rivals some of the best of the movie screen, I could not put this book down!”

Check out HOT-BLOODED and see for yourself!

My Review ~ 3 Stars

Family….It’s the center of life, the life force we crave. It must be protected under all costs.

Life for Keahilani has never been easy. When tragedy strikes, Keahilani finds herself taking on the role of patriarch for her family. Decisions are made that affect each member of the family…some with unexpected circumstances.

Hot-Blooded is a darker venture for Kendall Grey. It explores Hawaiian folklore, culture, and ways of life. At the center of the story lies a heroine devoted to keeping her family together. Her determination will lead readers on a journey into the world of drug trafficking. There is also mystery surrounding the characters and the secrets in their lives.

As a lover of all things Kendall Grey – I found myself a bit disconnected to Hot-Blooded. In appreciation of the meticulous writing and research that was put into this book, I found myself wanting to look up all of the Hawaiian terms I was not familiar with throughout the story, which was a bit distracting.

The ending of the book picked up the tempo and intrigue centered around the story plot. However – there was just too much detailed information packed within the pages of this book. The jam packed details in this story will let readers discover how dedicated to the Hawaiian culture Kendall Grey really is.

About Kendall Grey

Kendall Grey, word wrangler, whale warrior, wicked wench, and lover of tongue-tripping alliteration, was born without an off-switch between her brain and mouth. She’s been called the “Flux Capacitor of Twitter” (@kendallgrey1) and “A little package of love all wrapped up in F-word paper,” but she’s really just a maniacal writer relaying eyewitness accounts of the rave inside her head. She writes urban fantasy with strong romantic elements and also dabbles in erotica and horror on occasion.

Kendall lives off a dirt road near Atlanta, Georgia, but don’t hold that against her.
