A PERFECT CARESS by @NanaPrah is LIVE! #BookReview #Giveaway

Title: A Perfect Caress
Author: Nana Prah
Genre: Adult, Harlequin Kimani Romance
Published: November 22, 2016
From the very first touch…

The moment suave businessman Dante Sanderson brushes hands with Lanelle Murphy, he can't get her out of his head. The guarded beauty resists all of his polished attempts at seduction. To soften the pain in her past, she's dedicated her life and family fortune to helping others, not chasing sexy millionaires like Dante.

Something about Lanelle makes Dante want to open his heart like never before. He knows their encounters are destiny. Lanelle is sure their sparks mean another heartache is in the making. Yet her cherished new project—a state-of-the-art neonatal unit—brings them together. From charity ball dances to strolls in Milan, desire pushes her…right into his arms. But will Lanelle be able to seize this sweet second chance at love?

First of all, I love the cover!

I also love strong heroines and Nana Prah definitely delivers on this. Lanelle isn’t just a beautiful face but a smart and strong woman with self-defence manoeuvres (one in particular) that leaves you in awe of her. She also has a good-to-a-fault heart that a younger me can so relate to.

A past experience has left Lanelle with no faith in men and relationships, but a chance meeting with Dante awakens a part of her that had been dormant for years. Even though she is willing to admit her attraction to Dante, Lanelle is determined to fight tooth and nail than succumb.

Dante on the other hand is ready to explore his attraction for Lanelle despite his negative past experience. I liked that the hero does not deny his feelings, and the fact that pursuing them helps him develop into a patient and caring man who puts his woman’s needs above his own.

What struck me early on in the story was how well-matched Lanelle and Dante are. Their lives and past experiences work so well together without feeling forced. That was probably the most enjoyable aspect of this story. I found myself excited whenever something about one of them reveals a potential conflict, and I just couldn’t wait till other person discovered the new bit of information.

A Perfect Caress is sweet and passionate and real without being inundated with the extreme drama normally associated with African-American fiction.

In my opinion, this is Nana Prah's best work, yet and I look forward to future Kimani reads from her.

I received a free of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

A Perfect Caress Excerpt © Nana Prah 2016

Without warning, Dante invaded her space and tilted her into a dip. Gripping the shoulders of his tuxedo, she scowled into his smiling face as the blood rushed to her head. Before she could chastise him, he brought her upright.
She hated surprises. Being out of control ranked number one on her never-to-do list. Dante threatened all of that. From the few stories Vanessa had told her about him, they were as different as a waltz and a tango. “Talk.”
Should she be feeling the deep rumble of his laughter against her chest? When had he pulled her so close? She tried to create space between them. His hand splayed at her back made it impossible.
“Do you ever loosen up?”
She snapped her head up. Even though she was wearing stilettos, he loomed over her. “You’ve met me, what? All of twice? You have no idea who I am.”
He leaned in close, his breath tickling her ear as he whispered, “But I’d like to.”
All thoughts of why she’d come on the dance floor escaped as he pressed his cheek against hers. For once in her life Lanelle lost herself in the gentle sway of a man’s embrace.
Nana Prah first discovered romance in a book from her eight grade summer reading list and has been obsessed with it ever since. Her fascination with love inspired her to write in her favorite genre where happily-ever-after is the rule.

She is a published author of contemporary, multicultural romances. Her books are sweet with a touch of spice. When she’s not writing she’s, over-indulging in chocolate, enjoying life with friends and family, and tormenting nursing students into being the best nurses the world has ever seen. Nana loves to connect with her readers on Twitter @Nana Prah and Facebook at Nana Prah, author.
