Synopsis
 

Kendall Price has a big secret. By day she runs the food truck in Lake Point, but by night she’s a high paid escort in the nearby town of Rochester. No sex, just a classy, skilled date-perfect to impress your friends, family, and business associates. When she fills in for her partner-in-crime, she ends up on a date with Levi Brier. Sparks fly, so she’s grateful she’ll never see him again, or she’d risk breaking her cardinal rule against mixing business and pleasure.

Levi hires an escort to help him get through a company function and is instantly enthralled. However he’s leaving Rochester for a new job and expects that is that. When he spots the dark haired beauty running the food truck in his new town, he knows he must have her at all costs.

A miscommunication, a bit of blackmail, and a sexy dare leave them both salivating for more. Can blackmail and deception lead to love? 

***All books in Holidays at Lake Point are standalone reads.


What Others Are Saying About Love for Hire

This is romance, no violence or explicit sexual content. No mystery or sidetracking story. It is good and it is a part of the Lake Point community so you get a few of the other characters mentioned as well, so continuing on with the series. It is fairly lighthearted no major angst involved, just a nice gentle read. ~ Wendy Hodges

Move to Lake Point. Will these two give into what they are feeling or will Kendell keep Levi at bay? This was another great short story. ~ Patricia Ann Blevins



I have enjoyed several of these by this author and would buy them again. They are quick easy reads. oldmodelT

About Sarah Cass

 
Sarah Cass‘ world is regularly turned upside down by her three special needs kids and loving mate, so she breaks genre barriers; dabbling in horror, straight fiction and urban fantasy.  She loves historicals and romance, and characters who are real and flawed, so she writes to understand what makes her fictional people tick.  And she lives for a happy ending – eventually. And enough twists to make it look like she enjoys her title of Queen of Trauma Drama a little too much.

An ADD tendency leaves her with a variety of interests that include singing, dancing, crafting, cooking, and being a photographer. She fights through the struggles of the day, knowing the battles are her crucible; she may emerge scarred, but always stronger.  The rhythms to her activities drive her words forward, pushing her through the labyrinths of the heart and the nightmares of the mind, driving her to find resolutions to her characters’ problems.


While busy creating worlds and characters as real to her as her own family, she leads an active online life with her blog, Redefining Perfect, which gives a real and sometimes raw glimpse into her life and art.  You can most often find her popping out her 140 characters in Twitter speak, and on Facebook.

Blurb





A love scorned. A heart enraged. A soul shattered.


Dylan McBride never knew pain until he lost Heaven. As if her betrayal didn’t break his heart, knowing he’s responsible for her death sends him spiraling into a web of darkness. He’s the reason their daughter will grow up without her mother and the reason the world may be doomed. Though his new abilities make him a bigger threat to his father, they’re unpredictable. Killing his dad will be simple…Killing Layne won’t.


Layne Perry’s soul is shattered, right along with his heart. After learning the truth about the Affinity, he was ready to claim what was his—Heaven’s heart and soul. Watching her fall from the cliff nearly destroyed him. It’s his duty to her daughter that keeps him alive, as does the promise he made to Heaven in a dream. He’ll risk his life to make sure Adalyn’s protected from The Fallen, and even her father should the need arise.


When Adalyn shows Layne a future he knows is impossible, he resumes the search for Heaven with the aid of her father and an unlikely ally. Yet chaos prevails as usual. A traumatizing secret is revealed, complicating Layne’s life more than ever. He must form an alliance with other Psi and make amends with Dylan, the one person who hates him. But the battle between him and his former friend is far from over, bringing Layne to one conclusion—those who fight hardest have nothing left to lose.


What the Heart Seeks is a paranormal romance full of suspense, soulmates and supernatural twists. If you like vibrant worlds, mystical characters, and heart-pounding romance, you’ll enjoy this epic tale of love, light, and darkness.




 

 
Early Reviews of What the Heart Seeks
 
I find myself in awe of Kelli’s writing skills. It is apparent that she has put much thought, attention to detail, and care into the creation of these incredible characters and the storyline. She has an astonishing imagination.
 
For someone who NEVER delves into the paranormal genre, I cannot wait to read more and look forward to seeing where this inventive and riveting story leads Dylan, Heaven and Layne.
 
~ CJ at Book Happiness
 
 
I shouldn’t be surprised and awed by the sheer talent Kelli McCracken possesses but every new book I read by her just shocks me. She knows how to weave an incredible story around you and leave you craving more and more. Her characters are strong and independent with a fire inside them. This book blew me away and I was left with my mouth hanging open in shock and awe. The explosive story is one that has been building since What the Hear Wants. I absolutely loved this book and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this series and book to anyone that will listen to my ramblings.
 
In this book we find Dylan and Layne shrouded in secrets while mourning the unbelievable loss of Heaven, not to mention the fate of mankind. Dylan wants to do nothing but lash out at all those he feels is responsible his Dad and Layne are at the top of this list. Layne has taken on the role of guarding Adalyn which means he won’t allow Dylan and his darkness to touch her. Will Layne’s heart and soul, yet again be broken by what his heart seeks? Will Dylan give into the darkness that surrounds him and destroy everyone and everything in his path?

PRIDE MAKES HIM BOLD ENOUGH TO COVET HER

Ali is a notorious thief, skilled enough to steal whatever his heart desires—except what it desires most. Anara. His fellow criminal would never let him get so close if she suspected he knew who she truly was. But a man can only resist temptation for so long…

PREJUDICE CANNOT HIDE PASSION FOREVER

Princess Anara is a tiger shifter obsessed with redeeming her race. With fierce determination, she’s stealing back the sacred objects of her people, the loss of which cost them the ability to safely convert their mates. Nothing and no one will stand in her way—not even a relentless thief who sees more than he should, and says more than she’s ready to hear…

DUTY AND LOVE BOTH DEMAND SACRIFICE

A dark sorcerer inadvertently gives Ali the leverage he needs to demand Anara’s hand in marriage. He’ll get the wife he’s coveted for so many years, and she will get the chance to finally explore the passion that she’s denied herself for too long. But even with a djinn’s magic at their fingertips, happiness is no guarantee. That which is easily gained is just as easily lost. If they want a future together, they’ll have to fight for it…

I’m not alone.

Anara slid into the shadow cast by a large pillar, stilling her breath as she scanned her surroundings. Visconti Malik’s cavernous home was empty on this level, none of the current occupants trusted to be in the showroom when their master was away. 

The cool tile chilled her back through her cloak as she held still, reaching inside herself for her other half. Her beast stirred, a tiger’s soft golden head rising, opening shining green eyes. Three high-arched doorways on either side of her gave a breathtaking view of the city around the hilltop, but she ignored it, focusing instead on the surrounding room. The massive pillars could be hiding anyone. 

Her nostrils flared, parsing out the myriad of scents that swirled in the wind. The ghost of the night’s dinner still hung in the air in a perfume of figs, pomegranates, goat meat, and barley. Underneath that slept the scent of the treasure the visconti loved so much, bragged of so often. And still below that was another scent. One that did not belong. 

Masculine. Sand. The sharp scent of clothing dye. And a familiar hint of foolhardy excitement.

A smile spread over her lips. She knew that scent. Knew the man it belonged to. Her stomach fluttered in excitement as she remained hidden behind the pillar, waiting for the soft footsteps to pass her hiding place. 

Ali was silent for a human, she would allow him that. But a weretiger’s senses were unrivaled, and she would have heard the slap of his bare feet on the tile even if he had been moving as cautiously as he should have been. She shook her head, stalking him as he approached the far wall where the treasures glittered on rows of pedestals. 

“Hello, beautiful,” he whispered.

Anara froze, her hand hovering over his shoulder. Irritation furrowed her brow, and she crossed her arms. “How did you hear me?” she demanded in a whisper.

Ali jumped, whirling around in midair and nearly dropping the gold rhyton he held in his hands. Blue eyes opened so wide they caught the moonlight, turning his irises into crystal pools of light. The silky black hair hanging to his shoulders framed those eyes, made them all the brighter for the shadows that bathed the sides of his face. Anara dug her fingernails into her palm, resisting the urge to touch a lock of that hair, see if it was as soft as it looked.

He exhaled a deep breath, muscled shoulders sagging under the thin material of his caftan. “Habibi, you scared a year off my life. Why would you do such a thing?”

Her eyes narrowed. “You were talking to the rhyton, weren’t you?” She drummed her fingers along her biceps and lifted her chin in pretended offense. “What a fool I was to think I was the beautiful one you were greeting.”

A grin spread over Ali’s mouth, and he rolled the treasure down his arm, carelessly flinging it to his other hand as he focused on her. The intricately carved head of a ram seemed to flash its disapproval as Ali raised the cup in a mock toast. “Had I known you were here, I would not have wasted those words on a meaningless trinket such as this. You are the true treasure here.”

As always, Anara found his smile infectious, and soon she was returning his grin even as she tsked at him. “If you’re wasting your time with baubles such as that, then you are ignorant of the visconti’s greatest wealth.”

Blue eyes glittered with renewed greed as he replaced the rhyton on its pedestal. “Oh?”

Anara cast a glance around to make certain they hadn’t disturbed the sleeping servants. The large room was open, security depending on the palace’s strategic placement atop a hill and the knowledge that anyone suspected of stealing from the visconti would suffer for a long time before he died. Malik was too proud of his treasures and his wealth to lock it away, and he clearly felt that the level of torture and violence he leveled on would-be thieves was more than enough to make up for his audacity. Anara said a prayer of gratitude for his foolishness as she redirected her attention to the locked door that led to the interior of the home. 

She took a careful step toward the door, her senses alert for any sound that might mean they were in danger of getting caught. The huge space remained empty, not a hint of sound bouncing off the gold and cerulean tiles that lined the floors, walls, and ceilings. With a wink at Ali, she resumed her original quest. 

He followed her lead, trailing without a trace of the pride that so often hobbled other men. It was perhaps his greatest quality, his ability to put practicality above pride. A very rare quality.

“And what precious secrets is Malik hiding, then?” Ali whispered.

“If you would do proper research instead of just grabbing whatever shiny object catches your fancy, then you would know. Now be silent.”

The door’s lock gave way under the careful application of the slender tools Anara had crafted herself. Together, they snuck inside and made their way down the short hallway, going left when it came to a T. 

The scent of rich ink, expensive thread, and the unmistakable mustiness of a space with no windows guided Anara until she came to the room she’d been looking for. Polished tile cover the walls and ceiling as in the other rooms, but this alcove boasted comfortable pillows and cushions for lounging, and expensive silks and tapestries broke up the endless shining tiles. A room meant for entertaining. For impressing. 

Anara kept her eyes on the tapestry at the far end, its vibrant threads depicting a majestic Roc holding one of its precious eggs, its wings turned to burning red embers by the glorious, intricate stitching of a setting sun. She stepped around the various seating arrangements, her heart beating faster as she approached her goal. 

Her fingers had just brushed the wall-hanging when Ali’s body heat washed over her back. Anara blinked and paused, her nerves tingling with the pleasant awareness of Ali’s proximity. It wasn’t the first time he’d invaded her space, and once again she reflected that if he knew that the veil she wore was not just a means of hiding her identity during her nocturnal activities, but a means to prevent anyone from looking on the face of the sultan’s daughter—he would never dare to stand so close to her. No man did. 

But he didn’t know. And he must never know.

“Have you forgotten what you’re looking for?” he murmured.

The words were another curl of heat into the air, and he shifted closer. Anara realized she was holding her breath, concentrating on the gentle press of his chest against her back. The tingling in her nerves turned to a crackle, and she quickly snuffed it out.

“I have not forgotten. I am waiting for you to realize your complete disrespect for my personal space.” She kept her voice light, gently recriminating. 

An inhale right next to her ear startled her, and she jerked her head to the side, prevented from seeing him by the hood of her cloak.

“You smell good.”

She pressed her lips together and turned enough to face him, narrowing her eyes at the wicked smirk on his face.

“You smell of wine. Perhaps you could refrain from breathing on me so at least one of us can keep a clear head?”

His blue eyes darkened and he stepped forward, crowding her and prompting her to tilt her face up to keep meeting his eyes or else step back in retreat. Her tiger raised its head, eyeing the man before her with burgeoning interest. Ali leaned closer, filling her senses with his unique scent. Her pulse throbbed as he stopped with his mouth an inch from her ear.

 

“Am I making it difficult for you to keep a clear head? Perhaps you’ll join me for a drink so I can…apologize?”
