GUEST POST: NATAISHA HILL


Today I have the pleasure of hosting Nataisha T Hill, author of Partially Broken, Never Destroyed.  She will be discussing 
what inspired her to 

Kayla starts a lustful affair with a sexy and intriguing new lover. Even though he has skeletons in his closet, Kayla can't control the passion that yearns for him.

She also notices jealousy issues with her roommate who becomes a never-ending nightmare. She tries to move on in her life without drama, but trouble seems to follow her even at her successes.

Kayla is carrying a huge secret that haunts her and she knows she will have to deal with it at some point. Her life is in danger as she continues to associate herself with people who carry demons.
In a crazy twist, she ends up discovering she has her own demons.
Kayla’s unresolved issues lead to part II “Partially Broken Never Destroyed 2”.

My inspiration  for Partially Broken Never Destroyed

I attended MTSU, but in the meantime, I also began to pursue a career in writing. I wrote articles for different websites such as associated content, which is no longer available, but I hadn't yet established myself as an author. 

Unexpected situations continued to happen to me as well as people around me, so I had to release. I've actually been writing short stories and poetry since the tender age of four, so I guess it was just in me to write. I published my first novel "Partially Broken, Never Destroyed" in 2012, which was when I took on the title of being a published author.

There are women that I personally know who have or have known someone to go through similar situations such as Kayla, the main character. There are also women out in the world who are actually in the process of going through one or more of these situations, so it was part of the objective to let them know they’re not alone and all situations can be overcome.

After graduating high school, I attended John Casablancas Modeling and Career Center in Nashville, Tennessee. I learned about modeling basics in addition to make-up application and skincare. I earned my certification as a select model/actress and then joined Model Talent Management as an amateur model/actress under (Gina Vickery).

I also attended Middle Tennessee State University, but life happened, and after entertaining a short modeling/acting career, I focused on schooling and graduated from MTSU majoring in Mass Communication and a minor in Entrepreneurship.

In addition to writing, I constantly find myself researching and finding innovative ways to manage my health which includes my hair, skin, nails, weight, and anything that has to do with me physically. I write reviews about products that work for me and those that flop.

Review: The Darkest Corner by Liliana Hart















Title: The Darkest Corner 
Author: Liliana Hart
Series: Gravediggers #1
Published: May 23, 2017
Publisher: Pocket Books
Format: eArc
Pages: 368
Genres: Romantic Suspense
Source: NetGalley
Reading Challenge: 2017 New ReleaseNetgalley and Edelweiss


New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Liliana Hart's first book in her suspenseful Gravediggers series, featuring an elite group of mysterious men who might be dead to the world, but are also tasked with saving it—and no one can ever know.
The Gravediggers aren't exactly what they seem. They're the most elite of the world's fighting forces—and all they have in common is that they've been betrayed by the countries they've died for. Because they are dead. To their country, their military, and their families.
Sometimes the dead do rise...
Deacon Tucker is a dead man walking. A former black ops agent, he was disavowed and stripped of all honor before being recruited as a Gravedigger. But his honor and good name no longer matter, because no one knows he's alive, and he'll never get the recognition he deserves. His mission is simple: save the world or die trying. And for God's sake, don't ever fall in love. That's a rule punishable by death. The kind of death a man can't be brought back from.
Tess Sherman is the only mortician in Last Stop, Texas. She has no idea how Deacon Tucker ended up in her funeral home, but she'll eat her hat if he's only a funeral home assistant. Deacon is dangerous, deadly, and gorgeous. And she knows her attraction to him can only end in heartache.
Deacon is on a mission to stop the most fatal terror attack the world has ever known—what's known as The Day of Destiny—a terrorist's dream. But when he discovers Tess has skills he can use to stop them, he has to decide if he can trust her with secrets worth dying for. And, most important, he has to decide if he can trust her with his heart.

What happens when a major earthquake changes life as you know it and the boy you thought you hated ends up saving you? Three times! 

Courtland Reese is the guy everyone hates and makes fun of because ... well, he is weird. He communicates with animals. Strange or interesting, seventeen-year-old Adela Castielle can't quite figure out, but when he saves her from being trampled by her own horse, she begins to understand him a little better and wants to learn more about him.

But, Max--her best friend/dream guy/someday-to-be-her-husband-only-he-doesn't-know-it-yet--hates Courtland with a passion. Adela wants to know why, except neither boy is talking. 

When Max leaves her stranded in his parents' wine cave with his worst enemy, Courtland, after what the experts are calling a "megathrust" earthquake, Adela starts to question her loyalty to Max as steamy kisses in a dark damp cellar only fuel her emotions with more conflict. 

But does she really have time to worry about that when fire, destruction and mayhem surround

In Nashville, country stars are a dime a dozen. 

I swore I’d never get caught up with one, but Boone Thrasher made a liar out of me. I said I’d never put my heart on the line, but he didn’t ask before he stole it.

Now we’re facing my worst fears, and we'll see if this country boy is tough enough to

see it through. 

 Girls like me don’t get happily ever afters… but maybe he’ll prove that wrong too.

A new stand alone office romance from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde...

I’ve always had one rule:

Don’t mix business and pleasure.

But then Landon Wright comes home to his family’s construction company with a broken back and a beaten heart and ends up as my new sexy boss. As the office gets heated, I’m thinking about throwing the rulebook out the window.

If only there weren’t a million reasons this could never work.

We may have shared a single perfect kiss, but I can’t let our intense connection cloud my judgment. Not with everything I’ve worked for on the line.

Dating your boss is so very, very wrongeven if he feels so Wright.

“Full of heart-wrenching emotion and pulse-pounding action.” —Helene Young, Australian Romance Readers Association award winner for best romantic suspense

How far would you go to save a child that wasn’t yours?

Mild-mannered kindergarten teacher Neve Botticelli leads a double life. Thanks to a childhood tragedy and her paranoid father, she’s a survivalist who's learned to live off the grid.

When self-made billionaire Micah Kincaid storms into town in search of his son, Rowan, he’s pushy, entitled, and stands for everything she despises. Micah can’t believe a kindergarten teacher is barring the way to him getting crucial information or even just a glimpse of the boy his cheating ex kidnapped. They share only one thing in common: either will do anything to protect the four-year-old, who they soon discover is being held for ransom by an outlaw motorcycle gang.

But as they work together to get Rowan back, they start to see beyond each other’s masks. Could falling in love be even more dangerous than hunting down deadly criminals?
