Roman is a man of little words and lesser morals. He's a man who accepted his demons long before the average person even realized they had any. Roman has never felt emotions like guilt, shame, or remorse.
Roman has also never felt love, sympathy, or compassion. Roman has never felt love. Jaded for reasons unknown with more money at his disposal than he knows what to do with, Roman's walk to the dark side began long before his first kill. He will taunt you, he will make you hope and watch in amusement as you fall for him, believing you're the one who can save his soul. Believing you're the one who can get through because the other twelve failed, you'll know to the marrow of your bones how lucky being number thirteen really is…
How do I know all of this? Because, my name is Heather Mackenzie and I've been number thirteen for a lot longer than I ever intended to be.

Where do I begin with Roman? I can say this...I have been anxiously waiting for Kimber to finish this one. I have read all of the books she has published and loved each one of them. However, I believe this is the darkest one she has written yet. While I love all the rainbows, butterflies and happily ever afters, I am also drawn to the dark side. In this book, I most definitely get what I crave...unpredictability, twists and turns of the plot, emotional instability, and graphic details seared into my mind. If you like all that, then read Roman and have your dark needs met.
When I finished reading Roman I believe my mouth dropped open and I was utterly speachless and in shock. This book will have you twisted, sad, hopeful, impatient, doubtful, pissed off mad, excited and not in that order.
Roman is the devil incarnate, seriously. He is pure evil and he knows it. I loved and hated him throughout this book. Heather was a very strong willed woman with 3 brothers. She is a cop working on a case going undercover watching to see if Roman is responsible for the death of 12 women. Will she be number 13? I'm not sure if she was doing this to catch Roman or to prove he was innocent. The farther into the book I got the crazier I thought Heather was. Going into any relatioship, a woman believes she can change the man. Heather knew what she was getting into with Roman because of the 12 others...was she number 13? Did she change him? Did he want to change? I can't tell you...you will just have to read it for yourself. What I can say is this...my heart literally shattered reading this book and I'd highly recommend it if you like a DARK romance. Go ahead and jump in...no testing the water. ENJOY!
Who is Kimber?
Shit, sometimes even I don't know. However if I had to type up an author bio (which, son of a bitch, I do) this is how it would read. BTW, caught a lot of shit for this author bio. Really don't give a fuck though, because I was asked to type up a bio. And if I can only say one thing for certain about myself, it's this: I'm real, I don't back down from what I believe, I say what I mean, and I mean what I say. I don't bite my tongue and I never try to hide the ugly parts of who I am... You either love me or hate me, but if you love me... I'll always be loyal, no fucking matter what ;)
I can be called a billon different things—daughter, mother, labor unit nurse, queen bitch, best friend, a lover, and a fighter. I've recently gone through some shit in my life I would have never believed possible, much less believed I would survive and come out conquering feats of which aren't usually met by a small town southern girl. Either fucking way, I came out on top and stronger than before, and though I've been through hell and back, I'm still just lil ole me... a book blogger, book pimp, and a book whore. My two indulgences remain to be my Jack’s in life…Jack Daniel’s and Blackjack. My biggest dream, the day I'll acknowledge that I've succeeded in life and can I die a happy woman, is the day I get to go two stark-naked hour-round sexual bouts with Jason Statham. *Sighs*I was born and raised in Louisiana… and No, I do NOT live in a bayou, I actually see the beaches on the gulf coast more than I see a bayou, lol. I started writing poems and short stories very early in my life. You know, for the Michael's and Leo's and Nick's in my life. I've been a book hoarder since I was eleven years old, but then a couple years ago something wonderful happened! The 50 Shades of Grey craze brought to life my inner smut whore and I commenced to read anything and everything smut affiliated. When reading wasn't enough anymore and I noticed that so many of the authors of my favorite indie authors and their books weren't getting the exposure their work deserved, I turned it into a mission, starting my own blog, buying their books and reading them one by one. I then wrote my reviews for my blog and didn't hold back in writing them (Hell yeah those motherfuckers a profanity laden). I've never done a single thing in my life halfway. I always go all in. After the success of my Blog, and the insistence of one of my bestest friends, my sister from another mister, Trina Taylor of Bad & Dirty Books, I was ready to finally take the plunge and see if I could write a book that was worth a damn.
I'm a Southern girl to my core, a self-proclaimed smut whore, and I keep hearing that I’m an author, but honestly… I don’t believe the rumors. I don’t feel like a kickass bitch spittin’ out lyrics, or stories, like a motherfuckin’ rockstar.
If you want to contact me, give me a shout out at 3am because my story just decimated your work day potential, or hell if you want to stalk me (I’ve met some of my BFF’s that way, don’t judge a stalker, they are awesome, fun, kickass bitches) follow me on these links:
