~Why read Lover's Leap?~
I’m glad you asked! This is Kimberly, and I’m so happy you’re here, visiting Andras’s site, and thinking about reading my recent release, LOVER’S LEAP, a contemporary romance published by The Wild Rose Press.

First off, LOVER’S LEAP is not for everyone. For instance, if you think you don’t like romance novels. Maybe you prefer literary works. Or maybe you DO like romance, but you always read paranormal, or historical romance. But then again, never say never!!

1. Read Candace and Logan’s story if you do love contemporary romances, especially the short (80,000 word) variety.

2. Read it if you LOVE hot heroes that make you melt.

3. If you like a well-written book, this one’s for you!

4. If you love Happily-ever-after in books, because, let’s face it, real life is rocky and rough, LOVER’S LEAP has you covered!

5. Been on the hunt for a new author to love? Try LOVER’S LEAP. Love historicals? No worries! My next release, coming out in early 2016 and published by The Wild Rose Press is a Victorian romance, and the first book in a series called Hidden Treasure. :-)

6. If you feel a call to support new artists, well, how do you do? I’m Kimberly Keyes, and I’d love you to read and review LOVER’S LEAP. I have an author’s page on Good Reads, Amazon, and The Wild Rose Press, not to mention a Facebook page, a blog (KimberlyKeyesRomance.blogspot.com, and a website, www.KimberlyKeyes.net. Stop by and leave me a message. :-)

7. Last on the list is this: Reading Candace and Logan’s story will not only make you fall in love, it will make you believe in love again. (At least that’s what one reader told me :-))

Happy reading, whatever you choose to read!!
~Try an Excerpt!~
After a while she turned to gaze at Logan’s profile.  One tanned forearm rested easily on the steering wheel, the other settled over the stick shift, just inches from her upper thigh.  Her eyes drifted over his long, denim covered legs, stretched out in front of him in an almost leisurely sprawl.  It struck her she couldn’t remember ever feeling so utterly feminine, and so totally safe, in a man’s presence.  Being with Logan felt so…right. 

The peace inside her snapped in the face of her inappropriate affection for a man she hardly knew.  A man involved with one of her best friends--who also happened to be a man.  She dragged her gaze away, pinching her eyes closed and fisting her hands in her lap.  What in the world was wrong with her? 

“Everything all right?” Logan asked, his words piercing the silence.  She shot him a look and saw his eyes flicking over her clenched hands.  Did the man miss nothing? 

She forced her hands to unfurl.  “Just thinking.”  Over thinking.  So she enjoyed his company.  That was no crime.  Besides, it was already Wednesday and he’d be leaving some time this weekend.  How much trouble could she possibly get herself into?  
~Meet Kimberly!~ 
Kimberly Keyes knew before she was old enough to drive, writing was her passion. Specifically, writing romance. Once she got up the courage to start typing, she never looked back—although some of her earlier works will never get further than underneath her bed!

She writes single title contemporary and historical romance, Victorian era, and is most comfortable working on two books in the two different genres, simultaneously.

The bulk of her time she spends writing, and re-writing, plotting, and dreaming up ways to perplex the characters living inside her head.

She’s lucky to have the unswerving support of her family, and most especially her two faithful companions, Pappillon, a twenty pound rescue puppy from Puerto Rico, and Frank, a.k.a. “President of the Black Dog Club,” also a rescue. The two are constantly by her side offering love and encouragement, and occasionally demanding chewies.
Kimberly will be awarding a $10 Amazon or Barnes and Noble GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.


  1. Compelling arguments for reading LOVER'S LEAP.

  2. What does your family think of your writing?

  3. "... dreaming up ways to perplex the characters living inside her head". Well said! Good luck with that!
