Shutter Speed and Freeze Frame by Freya Barker and KT Dove: Cover Reveal + Review

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.

Suspenseful and impactful, Shutter Speed is in a league all of it's own. I love the banter between Isla and Ben. Hard as they may try to not be attracted to each other, it's just not possible. 

Isla (the pixie) aka pixel peeper loves to take pictures .. it's her passion. Isla takes pictures of anything that catches her eye; in fact, behind her lens is how she first spotted Ben .. the silver fox. Riding up on his FatBoy, he made riding look even sexier. The two did not appear to get along at first, although she was able to win him over one morning. This is not what he wanted. He wanted to escape into the woods and never look back. 

Being the pixel peeper that she is, Isla sees something through her lens, that can change things drastically. Ben must keep secrets in order to keep the people along his path safe, but will Isla see it as deceit and deception? Will Ben be able to explain away her mistrust?

Shutter Speed is a quick read and sometimes that hurts my heart. Sometimes we want just a little more. However, I did not feel as though I was rushed through the book. It has a nice easy, even pace and that speaks volumes. Freya Barker and KT Dove are "new to me" authors and two that I will continue to follow wherever their work takes them. Make sure to pick up your copy today!

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.
