Reviews are the lifeblood of authors.  When a reader engages and lives in the story there is no better compliment.

Rating four stars
"Destiny’s Plan by Victoria Saccenti was a phenomenal book and I absolutely loved it. I love historical fiction and I thought that was one of the best elements of this story. It's interlaced with history that adds to the drama and poignancy that I always gravitate toward when finding a good book to read. I felt like I was inside of the book the entire time I was reading it. I was emotionally invested in the story while I was reading. I felt everything. Being severely visually impaired, everything in life for me is sensory, including reading. I experienced everything the characters experience and I loved this book. I felt like the author had a great connection to the era she wrote about even in her own world that is this book. The characters are relatable and loveable. I have always been a lover of romance and a believer in fate and destiny. Destiny's Plan is a must read for everyone, this book will make believers out of people who weren’t before."

Book Cover Reveal -- Karina Kantas

Karina Kantas, author of the thrilling Motorcycle Series, In Times of Violence, Huntress, Lawless Justice, and Road Rage, is now stunning us with her brand new book covers. Australian graphic artist Steven Blundell at ArtworksByStephenBlundell is the creative force behind the handsome new design.    

With her love for rock music and S.E. Hinton's YA novels, it's no surprise her first novel was in the rebel teen fiction genre.  Her next novels are MC thrillers, but those that have read her short story collections Heads and Tales and Undressed, know Karina is not a "one genre" author. 

Born in the midlands UK, she grew up in a poor, rough area of town and used her writing to escape an unsettling reality. Delving deep into her character's minds and hearts, she gives her readers thought provoking and sometimes dark and violent storylines. 

Karina has over thirty publications including book reviews, film reviews, poetry, and articles.  She's been nominated top ten of female authors of biker fiction and her horror story Crossed, also won the first prize in an International Short Story Contest.

With an International fan base, you can find her on popular network sites such as Twitter and Facebook, where she's always happy to interact with her readers. 

No matter which genre of fiction she writes, you'll always hear loud rock music playing while she works, as it allows her to fade away and become one with her characters.  Don't expect happy endings in her novels as she writes about real life.  Instead, the readers will get exciting storylines that will glue them to the pages, asking for more.  

Home to Karina is in the beautiful Island of Corfu, where she lives with her husband and two daughters.


"It's about love, respect and the feeling of belonging" Jades' infatuation with Marcus, head of the Tyrants, leads to a deadly situation.

Sofi thinks she can walk into an outlaw MC and kill the president. But once she enters the wolve's den there is no escape. Love and revenge entwine in this raw emotional thriller.

Time for the boys to ride bitch. These Kittnz have claws!  Six empowering women that own the night.

Gem learns too late that the sponsored racing club, RAGE are no different to the outlaw MC she'd escaped from.

New Review - Destiny's Plan


Can you say swoon? Because having just finished reading Destiny's Plan, I'm definitely swooning. Much swoon. Very heart-flutter. I absolutely adored this book! Historical novels aren't usually my thing, but Raquelita (never going to be able to spell that right on one try!) and Matthew's story sucked me in right away. I was rooting for them from beginning to end, which is really the mark of a great love story.

The chemistry between these two characters is what drives the entire story, and the writing brings it to life perfectly, right from when they first meet (on a train! cute!).  The odds are stacked against them, but they're drawn to each other despite everything that's going on in both of their lives.

I can't wait to see more from the wonderful author.  I'm not sure what Saccenti has planned next, or if there will be more in this series, but whatever it is, I'll read it.
