Deadly Release Banner

Title: Deadly (an Empathy novella)

Release Date: August 24,2015

Genre: Dark Thriller

Normal is not something Ryan and Cereus have ever been, where’s the fun in normal?
When Cereus’s dreams follow her into the waking hours, she has to come to terms with the fact, Ryan is not the only monster in her madness.
That she herself… can be just as deadly.
*Must be read after Vacant to fully enjoy this novel

Deadly - Ker Dukey - Empathy series book 3

For me I was left feeling wtf after I read this one. I wont deny that I was draw to Blake in books 1 & 2. But I never got the lovey feeling for Ryan. I am probably the one reader over here who is praying this story isn't done and is hoping for some redemption for Cereus and Ryan.

Ryan coached her on how she needed to accept what she was. Instead? She has allowed her demons to torment her in her nightmares. She fights with acceptance of what shes done, therefore she feels as though it has all been a dream. A dream that has crashed into her reality and brought her back to where it all began.

I haven't - in the past - been a fan of dark, twisted reads. I have to be in a certain mood for them. The Empathy series is a twisted, fucked train wreck that I can't stop reading. No matter how much my stomach is turning from the words I read on the pages.

Even though, I felt this series - minus book 1 - was a bit much for my conscious, I can only say that Ker Dukey is one amazing author. Her and Stephen King could have some kickass conversations.

Empathy ~ Ker Dukey

Sweet Jesus...

What the fuck did I just read?

Normally, I am a speed reader. I can knock out a book in no time at all. This series - 2 novels, 2 novellas - took me over a week to read. Why you ask? Because O.M.G. what a mind-fuck.

Empathy - Blake is blank. He has no empathy. It's one thing that is missing from the make up of his soul. Being a contract killer, not having that particular emotion is necessary. Being a police detective, he exceels at acting. Blake lives his life to provide for that of his brother. Everything he does is for Ryan. He lives to make sure that Ryan doesn't live without.

Melody is your typical college student. She's the happy-go-lucky girl next door who comes from one of the best families you could ask for. One trip home - one fateful weekend - her world shatters around her. Everything she has known is gone. With her world in shambles, it's one man who settles her. The brother of her best friend. Blake. She doesn't understand why she is drawn to him. She doesn't understand the affects he has on her. But he shows her a side of herself she never knew.

When all the secrets are revealed... who will be left standing? As hell rains down around Melody and Blake, everything they thought they knew about themselves is questioned.

Ker Dukey..... as much as I would love to live in your brain, the thought scares me. Never - NEVER - have I had a series screw with my head as yours did. This book. Sweet baby Jesus. MASTERPIECE!

Desolate - Ker Dukey - Empathy book 2

Fast forward 18 years in the future.

The past 18 years has been the epitome of perfect.

Cereus is discovering parts of herself that she has often squished in the dark portals of her mind. Those thoughts. That dark little angel sitting on her shoulder has decided it wants to play. But can she control it?

Meeting Ryan, Cereus has found a missing peice of herself. Two peas in a pod, they have a connection that goes beyond anything either ever imaged.

Blake & Melody run into their own set of issues as murders are happening, fingers are being pointed, secrets are being kept that's causing a deeply emotional rift between them. When Blake finishes his investigation.... It will come down to him to save everyone he loves.

Ker Dukey once again screws with the mind. Desolate is one that I had a difficult time reading. I would read a couple of pages then have to walk away. The emotions are on full display in this novel, from the psychopathic Ryan to the confused Cereus to the heart-wrenching that Blake and Melody are feeling. Desolate is a novel that will need your full attention. Think of it like a movie that you can't step away from or you are lost.

Vacant - Ker Dukey - Empathy series book 2.5

I have questioned exactly where this series is going to go after reading books 1 & 2. The relationship between Ryan and Cereus is one that has consistently had my head spinning. They love each other yet not in a sexual way. Not in a "niece/uncle" way. Could it even be considered love? As Ker explains it, it's soul spotting of sorts. They are connected by the likeness in their souls.

Cereus is on the track of allowing her darkness to fill her. Feeding it's need. Ryan is high on his ability to control his Cereus. On his manipulation of her. In his belief that they aren't "sick". 

Ker's mind hasn't failed me. I will admit that this is the first series of hers I have read. I hadn't realized just what I was getting myself into when I agreed to read them. Vacant is a fast moving novella that follows along with Cereus' self discovery of who she is. What she is.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own.
My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.
When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.
You can find me on Facebook where I love interacting with my readers.

**BT** Ex-Con ~ Selected Sinners MC 5 ~ Scott Hildreth

Title: EX-CON
Author: Scott Hildreth
Release Date: August 17th, 2015
Series: Selected Sinners MC, Book 5
Cover Model: Darren Birks

Amazon US | Amazon UK


People break promises. It happens every day.

Jack Shephard is tall, muscular, covered in tattoos, and rides in an Outlaw Motorcycle Club. Most people wouldn’t believe a word he said based on his appearance alone.

But they don’t know Jack like I know Jack, and Jack made me a promise.

There’s one small problem. Jack’s been arrested on a murder charge he didn’t commit, and he’s facing life in prison.

But he promised me he’d always come home.

And Jack doesn’t break promises.

EX-CON is a stand-alone, no cheating, no sex outside the relationship, HEA story of love, loss, second chances, and living life outside of the boundaries most citizens live in. It is Book V in the Selected Sinners series of MC Erotic Romance novels, and is able to be enjoyed fully as a stand-alone. To experience the series in full, Making the Cut, Taking the Heat, Otis, HUNG, and EX-CON may, however, all be read (in that order).


This is a difficult review for me to write. 

I love the Selected Sinners. 
Each and every character is so unique, each have their flaws, each have their hurts, each seeks redemption. 

Jackson never had it easy. Losing his parents way to young. The consistent threat of being separated from his sister. The loss of not one but two loves. He's jaded. Naturally. I would be too. But when it comes to the brothers around him, he will stop at nothing to protect them. Even if it means killing. 

Meeting Emily was kismet. He met her at a time in his life when he wasn't actively searching for a mate. But she was it, and she was perfect... for him. 

Their story was ultimately a beautiful heart felt story until the day he was ripped from her. 

Here's my problem....

I feel as though the book ended too soon. As we definitely needed to get Jackson's back story, it was the perfect re-introduction to Big Jack and what brought him to the Sinners. That being said. This is the Sinner's MC. We - as readers - didn't get Jack's current story. We got only his back story. What happens now? Where do they go from here? I feel as though there are too many unanswered questions for Jack & Emily. We can obviously assume that they got back together and lived happily ever after. But really? This is an MC... that's never the case. Where were the trials and tribulations they face in the future? Is this to say there will be another book in the series about our wonderful Jack? 


A Personal Note from Scott About Himself and His Personal Journey with this Book

I began riding with my first MC after 20 years of riding alone. Although I didn’t know it at the time, immediately following my introduction to the club, I became the target of an ATF investigation.

The investigation ended when a helicopter, over 30 ATF agents, US Marshalls, and countless other SWAT Team members converged on me one day.

I was indicted on more than two dozen criminal counts, and given the option to plead guilty to one and receive a light sentence (probation). If I fought them, they explained, I would face life in prison.

Well, I’ve never been one to give up easy, so I chose to fight.

And I fought all the way to the US Supreme Court.

The fact I lost my case didn’t really matter to me. Fighting was more important. Standing up when most citizens would sit down had always been my nature.

My time in prison wasn’t easy, but I made it the best I was able. The days drug on forever, at least initially. In time, my mind made sense of it all, and digested it as being a new way of life; my only choice, so to speak.

In EX-CON, Jack’s thoughts, feelings, decisions, and actions were mine. What he felt, thought, and went through in the book is accurate down to the smallest of details.

My experiences in life cause my books to have more ‘feel’ than a conventionally written novel. EX-CON is no exception. It’s gritty, real, and raw as are most of my novels. But one thing it has that no other Scott Hildreth novel shares.

300 pages of compassion.

Enjoy knowing a little more about me. And enjoy EX-CON, which is a reflection of part of my life.


Born in San Diego California, Scott now calls Wichita, Kansas home. Residing in Kansas with his wife, Jessica, and five children (and another on the way in November 2015), he somehow finds twelve hours a day to work on his writing. 

Addicted to riding his Harley-Davidson, tattoos, and drinking coffee, Scott can generally be found in a tattoo shop, on his Harley, or in a local coffee house when not writing. 

Loyal to the fans, fan girls, and faithful followers who allowed him to make writing a full-time career, Scott communicates with his followers on Facebook almost daily. He encourages his readers to follow him on Facebook and Twitter.
