Amour Amour Cover FINAL


“Every day,” he says lowly, “I hold a person’s life in my hands. The circus is based one-hundred percent off trust. I give it all to someone, and they give it all to me.”

The best aerial technique won’t land 21-year-old Thora James her dream role in Amour—a sexy new acrobatic show on the Vegas strip. Thora knows she’s out of her element the second she meets Amour’s leading performer. Confident, charming and devilishly captivating, 26-year-old Nikolai Kotova lives up to his nickname as the “God of Russia.”

When Thora unknowingly walks into the crosshairs of Nikolai’s after-show, her audition process begins way too soon. Unprofessional. That’s what Nik calls their “non-existent” relationship. It’s not like Thora can avoid him. For one, they may be partners in the future–acrobatic partners, that is. But getting closer to Nik means diving deeper into sin city and into his dizzying world.

Thora wants to perform with him, but when someone like Nikolai attracts the spotlight wherever he goes—Thora fears that she’s destined to be just background to his spellbinding show.

This sexy and exhilarating New Adult Romance can best be described as Cirque du Soleil meets the steamy, athletic romance of Center Stage.

*standalone & no love triangles—recommended for readers 18+ for mature content*

  1. EMMA AND ANDREW!!!!!!! EXCUSE ME WHILE I TAKE A BREAK TO DANCE IT OUT AS WELL. Ok i’m all good. This Amazon holding it all to themselves thing better not happen again ffs. OOOOOOH!!!! I’m the same height as Thora 🙂 And plus points for reading, girl! She does sound like a kick-a character indeed! Can’t wait to meet her 🙂 Thanks for sharing, girls!


  2. LOL It seems she shares a dislike with me, and possibly the reason it took me 5 years to graduate college? (*just kidding, it was because I changed my major *wink) “Hangovers that disrupt normal coordination” and this can be brought on by one of my favorite drinks: “Tequila Sunrises”


  3. Thora reads paranormal romance novels and watches all the paranormal shows. (Sidenote: I did not know the cool kids call them PNR’s). Ahh, she sounds like such a fangirl and I love her already. Thank you for sharing this you guys. Love the blog. ❤


  4. I love the circus! I too like to look on the brightside except if you wake me early, early in the morning or make me wear a corset or bra w/wires that poke you in the boob. haha I most excited to meet Nikolai. =D
