Cover Reveal — Nightmares and Stardust by me :)

Nightmares and Stardust a romantic mystery by Karen botha

Today’s cover reveal is actually one of mine! Welcome to the first outing of Nightmares and Stardust, the second book in the Diamonds series.

The first of this Diamond series was Jessie, if you’ve not read that, then you can pick it up here. This, second in the series, is a totally standalone book so don’t worry if you haven’t read Jessie, you should be fine picking up this book on it’s own.

If you’ve read the Commitment Series which has been an Amazon bestseller and is one of the best gay romance books or indeed series on the market, then you will have already come across Jessie because she’s one of the sub-characters. This novel follows her as her relationship with Zac continues to blossom, amidst a tirade of outside negative events.

It’s a sublime, exotic vacation, the idyllic business trip, and a murderous trap.

Dear Jessie

I’m sorry I brought you to this hell hole. I thought you would enjoy the staggering landscape and diamond fields of Namibia. I hoped that my business trip would be swift like all the rest, and then we’d be able to enjoy the desolate scenery together while escaping the brutality of mundane life.

I didn’t realize that it could be a brutal place where we would risk escaping life altogether.

I hope I find you my one true love. I hope we will be together again and that you will forgive me for forsaking you.

All my love.

Nightmares and Stardust is an impassioned tale of learning to hustle. And fast. When hustling is not your thing. Because, if you don’t, you’ll lose the one trueness in your life. It’s about forsaking everything you ever held dear, for the one you now hold dear. And it’s a story of self-discovery where you didn’t realize it was needed.

Only then are you able to survive what life throws at you and power towards saving the one you love.
