Product Description

This is a dark romantic thriller which could trigger some people. Please read with caution.

Some choices are simple, some are hard, and some leave a brand.

One unforgettable night at a masquerade changes it all.

Mogul Nik Strand is all too familiar with the curve balls life likes to throw. Believing his soul can never be restored, he covers his pain and heartbreak with money. The more the better—as his heart is nothing but ice.

Aimee Taylor makes a decision that will haunt her forever. Unfortunately life doesn’t come with a do over; therefore, she makes the best out of what she has.

An unforeseen circumstance brings these two together again, even though, neither can explain how or why the other seems so familiar. As love tries to heal this wounded couple, a common adversary seeks to destroy.

Due to strong language, sexual content, and violence, this is book is intended for 18+.

Excerpt from Branded (Nik)
We entered the penthouse, and I immediately led her towards one of the spare bedrooms. It was a crucial error on my end. How did I expect myself not to touch her when she was under the same roof? The smell of her lured me to her side. As I opened the door for her, I informed, “You can sleep here in the guestroom.” She was so weary I wasn’t sure she’d make it to the bed. When she stumbled over her own two feet, I clutched her elbow to keep her from faceplanting onto the floor. My God, she was beautiful. I had to divert my gaze before I did something impetuous.
Her eyes were heavy as she curled up under the covers. As I turned off the lamp on the nightstand, she grabbed my hand. “Stay. Please?” she slurred.
Oh, hell no. I did not have the strength for that. I brushed my fingertips along her cheekbone. “I’ll be right here, little one,” I reassured. “I’m not going anywhere. Rest, now.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Strand Industries BRANDED my heart!!! 31 May 2015
By D. Collins - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Branded is sure to be your new obsession. Welcome to Nikko, a strikingly handsome, formidable man who made some poor choices and spent time paying for them. Now he's determined to make up for lost time with his younger brothers by stepping into the role he was born for, leader of the Strand family. Surrounded by wealth and privilege at an exquisite masquerade ball, Nik is suddenly captivated by a guest he's sure isn't on the invitee list. Stirring feelings he thought were long dead, he takes a risk that will change his life in a matter of minutes.

Desperate to make ends meet, Aimee agrees to a one night affair, providing beautiful companionship as an escort. With the promise of complete anonimity thanks to a gorgeous gown and mask, she never expected the wildest chance encounter that only exists in dreams! Whisked quite literally off her stilletos, Aimee and the masked lothario dont even exchange names before consuming each other. As quickly as she came, he was gone. No names. No faces. Not enough!

Five years goes by and yet another chance encounter brings Nik and Aimee face to face. Will the one night of passion that still haunts them both be enough to see through the masks they are still wearing? Can their one electric encounter turn a spark into an inferno?

Senator Caleb Reynolds has it all. Money, power, influence and and insatible thirst for pure evil. Caleb takes what he wants, when he wants, and quite literally burns up everything in his way. His rage and detest of Nikko Strand knows no limit and he will stop at nothing to ruin him. Does poitical office buy him freedom to do as he pleases or will the Strand brothers finally find out what truly lies beneath his carefully constructed fascade?

Full of hairpin turns and nailbiting angst, Branded has so much more to it than just your average HEA. This erotic thriller will have readers begging for more!!! Nikko Strand is the man we've been waiting for. Trouble is, can he allow himself to be what everyone else in his life knows he can be? Do soul mates really exist? Is love powerful enough to transcend the masks we wear every day and heal us to no longer need them?
5.0 out of 5 stars Great read. Great story 31 May 2016

I absolutely loved this book. The hero, Nik Strand is a broken alpha hero who has been through to much and Aimee Taylor is the heroine that he is trying to save from the same fate. That Nik's nemesis, Caleb is the dragon he has to slay to defend the damsel just sweetens the deal.

Lora Ann's Branded moves at a good pace with very little downtime. The characters are strong in their own right and unstoppable together. The writing is solid. I would definitely recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strand me with Nik anytime! 17 June 2015
By T. Meerschaert - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was introduced to Lora Ann's writing by a friend and am I ever glad. Lora has a great writing style. The story never gets bogged down, the characters are well drawn, the situations are believable.

Branded introduces us to the two main characters, Aimee, a high-class call girl looking to begin managing a hotel and Nik, a Nordic hunk who has shut himself off emotionally since his first wife's death 15 years before. Aimee has caught the attention of a US Senator with no scruples who is trying to rope her into marrying him. It is the last thing Aimee wants, and when the senator tries to hurt her, Nik comes upon the scene and rescues her. It turns out Nik and the senator have bad history together and Nik realizes the only way to save Aimee is to marry her. But Aimee does not want to be saved, nor does she want to be locked into a loveless marriage to Nik, even though they have chemistry.

I could not put the book down until I finished it. I am now looking forward to reading about Even, the next book in the Strand Brothers series.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Hot Sexy Nordic Male, One Beautiful Sexy Siren. One Explosive Love. 12 November 2014
By Anonymous Reviewer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What would you do if you found out your dad was ill, needing treatment that he couldn't afford and you were the only one to help with the bills? Would you put your own dreams on hold to make that possible? That is what Aimee Taylor did. Though some may call her methods a bit unorthodox, she did what she felt she must do to help her dad survive. Along the way, she meets a mysterious man at a masquerade party where she is also to meet her new employers.

Five years later, and her life went down a path she hadn't planned, but her dad is alive and well and she is wondering how to get out of a mess that seems to have no good answer. Along comes Nik Strand, who seems so familiar. See where this is going?

Nik Strand, a tortured soul from a past that keeps him in a self-imposed prison, doesn't want a relationship, but he is a protective person when it comes to the situation he finds Aimee in, so he will do what it takes to protect her. AND for some reason, she seems so familiar...

As you can imagine, Nik is one tall, sexy, Nordic alpha male. *sigh* Muscles out to ==here== and hair long enough to run your fingers through. *OMG* You will melt just reading about this sexy beast. Then there are his two sexy brothers, Aimee is surrounded by loads of testosterone! Be still my heart!

Aimee is one sexy siren and she knows how to use it. As much as Nik tries to resist, he just can't stay away from her. So here is where his heart's dilemma begins to weigh on him, but his first priority is Aimee's safety; although she sometimes fights his overbearing ways to do so.

Lora Ann has a good writing style. She always keeps your interest. While there is plenty of heat in this book, she isn't overly graphic in the sex scenes, but you get enough to warm you up a little. There is some mystery and intrigue, good and bad guys, not just love and sex going on in this book. There is a little bit of everything to keep your mind going and wanting more to keep reading.

While there is no cliffhanger, I am ready for the next book soon-to-be released about the next Strand brother, Even. Oh yes, this one should be good. Let's just say Even has a little more kink but oh, so, yummy side to him. *wink*

5.0 out of 5 stars Branded=Hotness!! 7 October 2014
By Kim D - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was definitely a great read! Nik Strand, what can I say... O-M-G!! He is a HOT, SEXY, ALPHA male but he feels & loves deeply! You can't resist this man he will break your heart and melt your panties at the same time!! And he has two equally hot & sexy brothers that I can't wait to read as well! Nik & Aimee have great chemistry from the get go. It took a while for Nik to give in to his attraction for Aimee but once he did it was hot, steamy and well worth the wait!

As always Lora Ann writes really solid characters. She has a knack for writing at least one depraved, licentious character. It never ceases to amaze me how she nails that character down, makes you loathe him. There is always a HEA but, there is always a dark twist!

I would definitely recommend this book, you will not be disappointed! I can't wait for the rest of the series!
