Shrouded In Blackness Blog Tour : Spotlight & Giveaway

Hi everyone! I have a stop on Shrouded In Blackness blog tour today.There is info on the book, a review and a giveaway for you all.
Only loyalty can truly win his heart…

Gangs, organized crime and underground bare-knuckle fighting make up the world that Kieran Delaney thrives within. His reputation is built on the talent of his fists, as much as his ability to get information about any and everything. Never one to be caught by surprise or bested, Kieran knows what you’re going to do before you do it…until Darcy Quinlan enters his life. She introduces herself with a knife to his throat and a promise of unbridled pain. Darcy’s life has been destroyed by betrayal and false promises of safety. Living on the streets for the last eight years, she’s has been a ghost. Never in one place long enough to be seen because you can’t catch what isn’t there. Now Kieran sees her and can’t erase her image from his mind.

Kieran and Darcy must now battle to keep her alive and by his side. As her past enters her life from every angle, Kieran makes certain her safety is no longer a concern, annihilating her demons at every corner. He’ll fight, he’ll maim, he’ll torture and he’ll murder to keep Darcy protected. If Kieran can win, her life will no longer be shrouded in blackness…loyalty will lift the veil.

My Review
Kieran has always lived in a rough world. Thieves, fighting, vengeance and more make up his every day life. He has never been beat and no one has ever got a drop on him until he meets Quinn.Quinn doesn't trust anyone and has been living on the streets for years. She has some very evil people who would love to find her. Now she has more than herself to protect and finds herself near the man she stabbed hours before. She doesn't trust Kieran at first but he soon shows her a soft side as well as the tough side of him. Now he will do anything to keep her safe. The past is rising up and they have to fight to not let it overcome them.

Quinn is a small woman who has lived alone and hidden from everyone. She is like a ghost. She may be small but she isn't afraid to take anyone on who messes with what she considers hers. She is beautiful and not used to people telling her that and it can embarrass her easily. Keiran is a tough take no crap man who you wouldn't want to be on the bad side of. He is sexy and at times can act like a caveman. Don't let him being hard at times fool you. He can be soft and very carrying with some people. I loved really seeing both side of him.

If I could get people to try one new author this would be the one. There is times I don't know whether I love or hate her simply because when I read her books I feel like I am reading about real peoples lives. Real people who I grow to love as I read their stories. I love this book and glad for the chance to see more of Keiran. He wasn't in the other books a lot and I only got to see a little of him. I was surprised and loved his story. Quinn is the perfect woman for him. They both grew up in similar situations and they have that in common. I loved seeing him trip over his feet trying to get Quinn and watch when he made mistakes trying to make them up. Quinn I loved from the start. She shows just how amazing she can be when she lets two people into her life and claims them as hers. She also isn't the type to let a man control her. She does let Keiran have the lead but that is only when she knows it is for the good. There is tons of danger in this book and some hard scenes. I would not recommend it for the ones who don't like to read about it. There is also hotness as Keiran and Quinn heat things up between them. This was an amazing book and I really can't wait till the next one. i can't get enough of these books that always seem to make me cry. If you love amazing characters please give this author a try.

5 out of 5 Stars

Blackness Takes Over was Norma Jeanne's debut novel. What began as an homage to the home town of a homesick Midwestern girl, unfolded a story of love, danger, humor, and trust. Blackness Awaits was the highly anticipated continuation of Blackness Takes Over, leading readers through the twists and turns of the unconventional world in The Blackness Series. Her third novel, Shrouded in Blackness, ventures into a criminal world where violence and vengeance reign supreme. She's currently working on her untitled fourth novel.

Originally from Kansas City, Missouri, Norma Jeanne recently found herself relocating to the United Kingdom. Now living in Belfast, she took hold of the opportunity to kick the 9-5 job for a chance to become an author. The best part: working from her home office, she gets to spend more time with her cast of crazy characters (written and real).

In her free time Norma Jeanne is a voracious reader and consumes books as readily as meals. She is a people watcher by nature and uses her experiences in life, observed or otherwise, to build the worlds and characters that thrive in her books. A believer in the strength of the human spirit, Norma Jeanne writes the stories of people that persevere when all appears to be lost.
