The Firstborn Son by @KaiaMisk is a Love and Romance Festival pick #romanticsuspense #giveaway



Title: The Firstborn Son


Author: Kaia Misk


Genre: Romantic Suspense


Book Blurb:


Becoming a ruthless mob boss like his father is the last thing Frankie wants, but when Sofia’s father is gunned down, Frankie must become the very thing he loathes to protect the woman he loves.


Sofia was a devoted girlfriend to Frankie, until he stood her up and she questioned his fidelity. Now that she’s alone and rich, mafia suitors slither around her. Marriage to him might be her only hope.


They try to rekindle their love amidst a mob war. But can a hasty marriage withstand what the Mafia has in store?


Excerpt:


Her hands went to her hips. “I mean someone that puts me first. Like my father.”


“Oh, I’m not signing up to be your father, sweet. I want way more than that.”


Lust, anxiety, and fear of a lonely future came to a fiery head within him. He prowled closer, grabbed her hand and pulled her to him. Heedless of the open window, he braced his arm behind her back with one hand behind her head. When he pressed his mouth against hers, she struggled for a moment. He almost let her go.


Slowly, her body settled. Chest to chest, hip to hip, her voracious kiss gave him hope. But he had to be clever, had to keep her mouth occupied so she wouldn’t argue. He stripped off his shirt and broke the kiss for a second.

Big mistake. She slapped him. The magic ended.


“This can’t happen, Frankie,” she said and stomped away. “You don’t get to seduce me and pretend everything’s all right. I love you. I want your body. I can hardly stand here and look at your chest without ripping the rest of your clothes off. But I need more than you’re giving me.”

What’s your favorite part about being a romance author?


I like to see the story come together for the first time. I write chapters and scenes as they come into my head. When I get the chapters in order, I can develop the story. It is a huge undertaking to get the first draft written. It feels like a climbing a mountain and standing at the top!


Here’s my tip to add romance to your love life:


See the inner beauty.

Kaia Misk is a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, otherwise known as a “Yinzer.” Her parents grew up across the street from each other in a small town where most people worked in the steel mills.

Kaia has a background in legal and technical writing including training manuals, training presentations and legal documents. She is also an excellent tailor and patternmaker. Her IMDb page lists her work on two full-length films as a costumer.


She is particularly inspired by the Hat Squad books of Karen Rose and Joe Lansdale’s novels, although her first love was Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky. She follows numerous other authors and reads every day. She currently lives in suburban Pittsburgh with her Norwegian Elkhound, Boss.
