Guess what came in the mail???

My books! Unless you are an author and you have lived this experience, no one can possibly know the complete giddiness I felt when I held my first book for the first time. It really was like giving birth. I was surprised to see a quote on the book from Shannon McKenna. "Intense and beautiful" is how she described HER ONE DESIRE.

Her One Desire receives Castle Keeper Award

With my debut book's release date just days away, I am overwhelmed with the response I am receiving from reviewers. Laurel Letherby gave Her One Desire the highest honor at

Her One Desire, by debut author Kimberly Killion, is what I’ve been looking for in a medieval novel for a long time. Is it steamy and sensual; the fact that they are both engaging and intelligent characters enhances the passion between Broderick and Lizbeth. The secondary characters were also enlightening and oftentimes provided humorous and eye-opening statements that made for a witty trek into Scotland amidst the danger and betrayal surrounding them.

I like the fact that Kimberly Killion took a mysterious piece of actual history and wrote a powerful plot while not overpowering the love story or characters with facts and data...Her One Desire went automatically on my keeper shelf, it’s a novel I’m sure every Medieval romance fan will devour and cherish for years to come. I also hope the author plans to continue writing about these characters and time period, as I miss them already.
