RELEASE BLITZ ~ Shutter Speed ~ & COVER REVEAL ~ Freeze Frame (the SNAPshot series) by Freya Barker and KT Dove



Series: A SNAPshot Novella & Novel
Author: Freya Barker and K.T. Dove


Genre: Romantic Suspense


Title: Shutter Speed
Series: A SNAPshot novella
Author: Freya Barker

Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: February 15, 2017 


She likes picking up her camera because it allows her to see things through a different lens. Like when she lost her job recently and instead of focusing on what she’s forced to leave behind, she zooms in on the new options opening up in front of her. Or when a dangerous looking silver fox comes rolling up her path on a FatBoy, and her digital output shows a deep loneliness, matching her own, in his ice-blue eyes.

But when she’s working on making her dreams come true, she inadvertently captures something in her viewfinder she can’t un-see.

He wasn’t supposed to be here, but he can’t seem to escape his old life. Stuck in an old trailer in the mountains, he walks a fine line between ruse and reality. With the arrival of a young-looking pixie—who turns out to be a full grown, hot-blooded woman—his balance is thrown. 

He tries to avoid her, but with the little pixel peeper snapping everything in sight, she unintentionally risks his exposure.

And his focus needs to be sharp to keep her from danger.




It’s not a secret that I FLOVE Freya Barker‘s writing and I was one happy gal when I heard about her latest book!

Shutter Speed was a short, exciting and hot read written in dual POV (which I’m a huge fan of!).
I loved Ben and Isla, they were both likable and although very different in personality they were a really good match and had a great connection.

Well written, engaging, with an interesting side story, Shutter Speed is an introduction to the characters that will feature in Freeze Frame (the first book in the new Snapshot series from Freya). It gave us an insight to the leading couple as well as an understanding of their back ground and how they got together.

Filled with mystery, intrigue, suspense and the heat, attraction and humour that Freya is exceptionally good at, this is a great intro to the new series!!

All in all I loved Shutter Speed and cannot wait to read Freeze Frame!

My rating ~ 5*

BLP REVIEW  ~ Rebecca 

‘Finding beauty in the mundane things around us, capturing the artistry of nature, and showing the brilliance of imperfection.’

This line is taken from Shutter Speed, where Isla is describing why her dream has always been realistic art photography however it also, for me, perfectly describes Freya Barker’s writing. She has a very special ability to convey the steamy chemistry, intimate affection, humour and warmth we all look for in any good romance book along with a Joie de vivre that shines, but what distinguishes her stories from all the rest and makes them special and different is those imperfections she shows; older characters with emotional and physical issues, baggage from a life lived, yet Ms Barker weaves the reality and the fantasy so they are seamlessly intertwined and breathtakingly beautiful yet tangible and possible.

Ben is a Harley riding silver fox (hot as fuck!!) with an Alpha bad boy vibe (I can hear the thud of all those panties dropping!) and limited words – my only question is where do I find one?

Isla is a talented, cheerful and chatty opposite of Ben and their attraction and developing relationship has the most delicious slow burn to it that even in a novella Ms Barker has done flawlessly.

If you have read the Cedar Tree series then you already know she has a flair for the suspense aspect as well as the romance and never fails to deliver. What surprised me is that even in a shorter story we lose nothing; the impact, pace, surprises, feels and steam are all perfectly paced and give the impression of a fully finished and rounded story not a prequel novella.

Another accomplished and stylish story from an author who has become a fast favourite of mine.

Title: Freeze Frame
Series: A SNAPshot Novel
Author: Freya Barker and KT Dove


Genre: Romantic Suspense

Release Date: Coming Soon

A new career, a new place, and a new man—you’d think after the rough year she’s had, Isla has finally found her stride. Of course it’s never that simple. Some dreams she is building, some dreams are taken away before they have a chance to form. But she never imagined that the one thing she’s worked so hard to realize, could be the cause it all breaks apart.

Ben doesn’t miss his assignments, his life of deceit, or his unsavory associations—but they appear to miss him. Just as he’s beginning to think perhaps there’s redemption for him after all, his dark past casts a long shadow.—and not just on him, but on the woman who made him believe.





Freya Barker inspires with her stories about ‘real’ people, perhaps less than perfect, each struggling to find their own slice of happy. She is the author of the Cedar Tree Series and the Portland, ME, novels.
Freya is the recipient of the RomCon “Reader’s Choice” Award for best first book, “Slim To None,” and is a finalist for the 2016 Kindle Book Awards for “From Dust”. She currently has two complete series and three anthologies published, and is working on two new series; La Plata County FBI—ROCK POINT, and Northern Lights. She continues to spin story after story with an endless supply of bruised and dented characters, vying for attention!


KT Dove grew up, and still lives, in the Midwest. At an early age she developed a love of reading, driving the local librarians crazy, and would plan plot lines and stories for her favorite characters. KT received degrees in English, Speech/Drama, and Education. And yet instead of becoming an English teacher as planned, she opted for an unexpected HEA. 

Now married, a mother and still an avid reader, she stumbled upon the Indie author movement and became involved on several levels. Never in her wildest imagination would she have thought she would co-author a book. With the support of her family, she took the plunge, adding writing to an already busy literary existence.  

She wouldn’t have it any other way.
