 Holding Aces
by Nikki Groom

**Holding Aces is part one of a two part Adult Contemporary Romance series that contains mature sexual content and language and is not intended for readers under the age of 18.**
*Please note: This is not a dark romance*

They say that time heals all wounds.
But mine are set in so deeply, they’ve taken on a life of their own, lurking in the shadows at every turn and haunting my thoughts.
The girl I once was has been replaced by a stranger.
I don’t even know who I am anymore.
I run.
And I hide.
Pretending to be someone I’m not…
Until I meet Denham King.
My burst of color in an otherwise grey world.
And for the first time in my life, I find myself running towards someone instead of running away.
But fate can be cruel,
and I can’t escape my past.
Can I?

High Stakes
by Nikki Groom 

Stupid. Beautiful. Girl.
How did you ever think you could be free?”
The last words I heard before the darkness took me and my dreams were shattered

I was on my way to having it all.
Friends, family and a future.
Everything I had wished for but never thought possible.
Denham King showed me just how good life could be. A life where love and happiness were within reach.


I should have known it would never last.

My past is a dark, damp cloud,
that has seeped into my skin and left a cold promise.

A promise of hurt and pain.
A promise of a long, hard fight, where the stakes are high and the risks threaten lives.
When your world gets thrown in all directions, and your dreams for the future are torn from your grasp; how do you go on?
Can I fight the demons that haunt me?
Can love save me from fate’s cruel path?

Interview With Nikki Groom: 
1. Can you tell us a little about yourself?
I am a wife, mum, hairdresser and hopeless romantic. Last year, when an Idea for a book came to me, I was encouraged by friends to run with it. I did, and here I am!

2. Can you tell us a little about The Kingdom series? 

Holding Aces is book 1. It focuses around Arianna Fraser, who is running from a very troubled past. She’s a vulnerable character, broken, but certainly not weak. The story has a mysterious, and very sexy feel about it, and it’s great to lose yourself in! I’ve spent the last year with Arianna and the sexy casino owner Denham King (I love this man!), and let me tell you, it’s a great place to be!
High Stakes is the conclusion to their story, and will be released on the 24th October. It’s fast paced, with just as much sexy as Holding Aces! 

3) In one sentence describe Holding Aces?
Sexy, fast paced, and romantic.
4) Do you have any odd writing habits?
Not that i’m aware of!
5) Do you having a favorite writing spot?
Yes, my office. I have everything spread out on my desk. Little notes, pictures, ideas. I also have a rocking chair in my lounge which has been the place I have written some great scenes.
6) When did you know you wanted to write a book? 

I was a blogger before I started writing. I never EVER dreamed I could, or would write a book, let alone publish it! I heard a song on the radio that triggered a scene in my head. Throughout that day, the scene morphed in to a detailed story, with very vivid characters. I asked an author friend of mine to write the story, she told me to do it myself! So, I did!

7) What's one random fact about yourself that you can share?

I can tie a cherry stalk with my tongue ;)

8) What's the last book you read?

Mystery Man by Kristen Ashley – Awesome book!
9) What is one thing you would like to learn to do?

I want to learn to play the drums. Or try to, anyway!!
I’d also love to learn another language and be fluent in it. French, or Italian maybe!

What project are you working on now?

I’ve just finished High Stakes (The Kingdom 2) so once that’s edited, I’ll start on one of the other stories I have floating around in my head. I want to spend a couple of weeks reading before I start writing something else. I don’t read anything while I’m writing, and I miss it madly!
