Guest Spotlight: KyAnn Waters author of Betrayed Vows

Darah, I’m super excited to be here today. Not only are you one of my besties, but I admire you so much. You are an amazing writer and I’m thrilled be kicking it on your blog today.

And I'm excited to have you here. I can't believe we've never done this before. So let's get started. What's your favorite book you've written?

You know I have a special place in my heart for Theron. His story is Dark Man but he has a major role in all of the Blood Slave books. They are available from Ellora’s Cave, but you can find the ebooks at all online digital book retailers such as Amazon and Nook. Ice Man and Iron Man are in a combo print edition., Theron is definitely one to make all the girls' (and some guys') hearts go thump! Who is the biggest influence on your writing?

Probably not a who, but a what. I love to set the tone with music.

Cool, I'm finding that out lately myself. How did you come up with the title?

Well the title originally started off as Lucky Charm, but my partner in crime, Darah, helped me brainstorm some options and I finally decided on Betrayed Vows.

Oh, right. LOL Well, Landon just doesn't come across as a leprechaun. Do you ever wish that you had an entirely uncreative job, like data entry or working in a factory?

Sometimes I think it would be easier to stay out of the kitchen and snack if I didn’t work in my home office. But truly writing is a perfect fit for me.

Maybe we should invent seat belts for office chairs. :) What is your favorite time of year and why?

Fall, I love crisp mornings and sunny afternoons. I love late fall flowers. I’m usually sick of the hot summer by the time the leaves are changing and I love an evening fire. Just thinking about it makes me wish for fall.

Now for the story.

Everything in Gretchen Booker’s life was as she wanted it. A husband on her terms. Companionship without physical contact. That’s why she married a lifer. Who would’ve thought it would all come to an end after only ten years?

Life on the outside is not as Landon Booker expected. But how can he make a future for himself beyond prison walls when the woman who is supposed to love him wants to see him sent back to the penitentiary.

Crystal Evans isn’t a home wrecker. Landon needs a friend…someone who can help protect him from his conspiring wife. Falling in love wasn’t part of the plan.

Yet vows betrayed leave all three with something to lose—Crystal her heart, Landon his freedom, and Gretchen the life she had before.


Starting at his bare feet, her gaze traveled the contours of his calves, and across the hard planes of his thighs. Try as she might, she couldn’t curb her curiosity. Riding low on his hips, his shorts hinted at what lay beneath. And his abdominals, although they were hidden under his shirt, she’d forever remember how her fingers slid against the corded grooves when they touched in the pool. Meeting her at eye level, his shoulders curved into his chest.

His features darkened as she met his stare. “Before this week all I wanted was for my wife to look at me the way you just did.” He ran his knuckles across her cheek.

“And now?”

Betrayal slammed deep in his gut, but he couldn’t stop. “I prefer eating Lucky Charms with you.” Touching the fire, he was going to burn. Slipping his fingers into her hair, it was soft as silk and smelled of lavender and vanilla. She trembled as he leaned closer and pressed the length of his body to hers. Burying his face in her hair, he breathed deeply.

Crystal sighed and lifted her face. Landon cursed himself as he lowered his mouth to hers. Gently at first, testing the softness and the willingness of her mouth to open under his, he let the essence of her scent penetrate his senses. Arms went around his neck, and then the sweet taste. Tongue against tongue. Body fit to body.
