About The Trilogy

Book one in the Brilliance Trilogy…

​It all started with a note, just a simple note hand written by a woman I didn’t know, never even met. But in that note is perhaps every answer to every question I’ve ever had in my life. And because of that note, I look for her, but find him. I’m drawn to his passion, his talent, a darkness in him that somehow becomes my light, my life. Kace August is rich, powerful, a rockstar of violins, a man who is all tattoos, leather, good looks and talent. He has a wickedly sweet ability to play the violin, seducing audiences worldwide. Now, he’s seducing me. I know he has secrets. I don’t care. Because you see, I have secrets, too.

I’m not Aria Alard, as he believes. I’m Aria Stradivari, daughter to Alessandro Stradivari, a musician born from the same blood as the man who created the famous Stradivarius violin. I am as rare as the mere 650 instruments my ancestors created. Instruments worth millions. 650 masterpieces, the brilliance unmatched. 650 reasons to kill. 650 reasons to hide. One reason not to: him.

Kace August: famous, intense, dark, addictive. Aria Alard: a woman with secrets, passion, and a dangerous past. Passion. Secrets. Mystery. Aria fell hard for Kace. She trusted him. But did he deserve that trust? And where is Gio?

A Wicked Song is the second book in the Brilliance Trilogy.

You only thought you knew how this was going to end, but their story is far from over. The explosive finale is bound to leave you breathless. A Sinful Encore is the third and final book in the Brilliance trilogy.

My Review

The Brilliance Trilogy was such a fantastic group of books that won my heart so completely and I fell in love with each installment, There is something so superb about this trilogy and especially in the writing style of this author. I loved the connection to the Savage series and seeing some of my favorite characters. I was intrigued by the set up of this series especially with the violinist and musical type of theme to it and the danger elements that is immersed within each book. We also get some delicious alpha action both in and out of the bedroom. There is a addictive sense in the author’s writing style that will draw you so quickly into the story and you will be cheering this couple on. The moment I picked up the first book I knew I was sticking with the whole trilogy because I became so hooked into it and when you are so invested in a story you desire to see it through and thus was the case with the Brilliance trilogy. The gist of the story is our heroine, is on the run, she is the daughter of a famous violinist who held the secret to the ost powerful set of violins in the world and their recipe in crafting them. But then she comes across the rock god of violinists who becomes her protector and fighter. I was so intrigued by the gradual build up of the plot that develops and seeing when the secrets would come out, and who the enemies were and what happened to Aria’s family. If you love a wicked contemporary romance set up with some unique style of characters and addictive writing, you won’t go wrong with picking up this trilogy. As a plus, the first book is free on Kindle. Overall I found the Brilliance Trilogy to be a thrilling adventure of musical love that strikes a chord to the heart and more!

Simmering—soft warm touches and light intimacy

Warm- a medium level of sexual tension, a balance of sexual and emotional intimacy, lighter on the details in the sexual moments.

Steamin’ up the room -the sexual content is more explicit in the language and tone, heavier amount of sexual scenes.

Blazing fire to the building-The prime focus is the sex scenes, scorching hot, and could burn one. Less focus on the emotional intimacy to the relationship.
