Hard and Deep

Posted on

 

I love football. I’m a Bronco’s fan (born and raised) and I try to watch my “donkeys” play every Sunday.

So, I wrote a book about a sexy football quarterback recovering from a knee injury and falling in love. It was practically plotted out in my head by the end of the fourth quarter!

I hope that you all enjoy it as much as I did writing it! Fall in love with my sexy bad-boy Oliver Lance and the sweet and caring Ellie. Seriously, go check it out!


Where are the Stepbrother books?

Stepbrother Hero and Stepbrother’s Gift were Amazon top 100 books, so why aren’t they on Amazon anymore?

Answer: Amazon made them unsearchable, so my publisher delisted them.

As a retailer, Amazon has the right to make their algorithms whatever they want. It’s annoying, but they can do it. They decided that those books were too risque for the general public and put them in the Erotica section with an adult filter to help hide them. If you searched “Krista Lakes Stepbrother’s Gift” there would be hundreds of non-erotica results before you found my book. As such, no one was buying it and the rank was plummeting.

So, they were delisted them from Amazon since no one could find them anyway. I unfortunately can’t put them up on other retailers because the other retailers won’t accept “Stepbrother” books. I’ve fought for two years now with these books- they got me into a ton of trouble with Amazon (see this post hereย on their re-release back in May ’15) The books were first released under my erotica name (which no longer exists) and got us scolded by Amazon (read about that meeting here). We had to fight for over a month to release them as Krista, and they did great, but then they were hit again.

I’m tired of fighting it. Amazon won.

So, I am very sorry but the books are no longer available. RIP Stepbrothers.



A double release!

Holy cow guys, this month was so busy!

I released two books (I Choose You and Yours Royally) It was a bit rough, but totally worth it. I love both these books and I can’t wait for readers to find them and love them too!

The idea for “I Choose You” came while playing the hit game of the summer, Pokemon GO. I love playing, and I wondered what it would be like for two people to find one another using the game. Then, being a Krista Lakes’ book, it had to have a billionaire in it!

Yours Royally is the third in the Billionaire and Brides series. It got some great Cinderella vibes and a real prince (who of course is a billionaire. Have you found the theme in my books yet?) I loved writing the wicked stepmother in this book, so be sure to check out just how nasty she is! I love to hate her ๐Ÿ™‚

Be sure to stay tuned for some new books! I’m hard at work on the 4th book in the Billionaire and Brides series, as well as a really fun stand-alone (that started as Book 4 for Billionaire and Brides, but Yours Footbally just doesn’t look good on a cover!)

 

Thanks for reading!!

It’s finally done! Baby brain was rough with this, but it is now up and available on Amazon.

Seriously, writing this while I was pregnant was rough. I knew the story and I could see the characters in my head- but I could not seem to get it on paper. I’d sit down and stare at a screen for hours- or the words would be so choppy and disorganized that I’d have to redo it all anyway.

But, the story came through! It just took me a little longer than I wanted (and the majority of it was written one the baby was on my lap rather than in it!)

I hope you all enjoy the love story of AJ and Kat. I loved writing it (once I could write)

It’s finally coming!

The next book in the Billionaires and Brides series will be released later this month! WOOOOO

Baby brain took it’s toll, but the book is finally finished! We’re just putting the final touches on it now and getting ready to send it to ARC readers! (Side note, if you want to be an ARC reader- please contact me!)

I’m now hard at work on Book #3 for this series as well as working on Gabe’s Kisses book (due out this summer!) There’s a couple of other things in the works, but those aren’t quite ready for the light of day yet ๐Ÿ˜€

 


An Update!

Posted on

I’ve gotten several emails from readers wanting to know when the next books are coming, so I thought I would share here ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m currently working on two books.

  1. Billionaires and Brides Book 2: This one is so much fun to write. It’s got shoes. And a baby. And that’s all I’m saying for now. My goal is to have the rough draft done and to the editor by the time the baby gets here! (So, I have to get on it!) Hopefully, Baby decides to help me out with this. If not, then it will be done as soon as possible!
  2. Kisses- This is Gabe’s story. He’s a total charmer and I love him. He’s using his dating service and well, things never go as planned! I’m hoping this one will be ready late spring/early summer. Again, this date depends on Baby ๐Ÿ™‚

I have another Billionaires and Brides book rattling around in my head (it’s a second chance love story) but that one will come when the first two are done!

Thank you all for reading!

A new series!

Maids don’t ever get to go to the ball… do they?

Jace Connors:
Stretched thin from running a business and organizing a wedding, the last thing Jace needs is the world’s most eligible bachelorettes trying to sneak their way into his bed. When he meets Ella grooming the inn’s horses, though, she leaves him breathless. Jace knows that he can’t let her get away…

Ella McDaniels:
What starts as an almost-kiss in the barn ends up captivating Ella, even though she knows that the richly dressed Jace is out of her league. However, when he keeps showing up wherever she is, her attraction to him grows. And if she can outwit her wicked stepmother, she just might be able to dance with him at the wedding reception ball. There’s only one problem…

What if Jace is actually the groom?

Why I’m doing 12 Days of Christmas

Why Christmas and not Happy Holidays?

Simple. I celebrate Christmas and since I’m giving away presents, that would mean that I get to decide what to call it ๐Ÿ™‚ If someone gives a gift, it’s for a reason. Christmas is my reason.

I love this time of year. I love it when friends invite me to their celebrations (Hanukkah is one of my favorites and I’m always honored and excited whenever I get to experience it.)

I want everyone to be included. ย So, if you don’t celebrate Christmas, that’s okay! You can still have presents! I still want to give them to you. This is me celebrating my traditions and including my friends. I just want to give away stuff!ย 

Please come and join in my celebration. I’m inviting you, regardless of what holiday you do or don’t celebrate to come and celebrate mine.

So happy holidays, everyone! Be sure to go to my Facebook page so you can enter to win some of my presents!
