Cover Reveals of the first four novellas in the Kelly Family series by Lashell Collins with a giveaway


Lashell Collins spent the last twenty years of her life working in Veterinary Hospitals and Garden Centers. But whether she was surrounded by the adorable puppies and kittens she helped care for, or by the beautiful flowers, trees and shrubs, she constantly pursued her favorite pastime – reading romance novels and imagining herself as the heroine in each and every one of them. She began writing as a way to work through her grief after the loss of a few people who were special to her, and she found it to be cathartic, so she kept at it. She self-published her first novel in 2013. Since then, Lashell has self-published ten titles across two series – the Pierced Trilogy (romantic suspense), and the Jagged Ivory Series (contemporary romance) – and is hard at work on another seven titles for this year. All of Lashell’s stories are full of heart and romance, with smart dialogue and spicy sex scenes.

When she’s not writing, Lashell enjoys reading, shopping, eating Chinese food, and riding on the back of her husband’s Harley-Davidson. She loves watching General Hospital and Grimm. She is a huge music fan and is completely obsessed with Slash. Lashell is a member of the Romance Writers of America. Drop her a line; she loves to hear from readers.

The Kelly Family Series – Books 1-4 by Lashell Collins

Ethan: A Kelly Family Novella

Officer Ethan Kelly is a nice guy. That’s what all the girls say, right before they toss him aside for one of those bad boys. But when he meets rookie officer, Heather Moss, Ethan is determined to show her that a nice guy knows how to treat a real woman.

But Heather isn’t interested. Or at least, she doesn’t want to be. She swore off men a long time ago, and focusing on her career leaves zero room for romance. Even with someone as sweet and sexy as Ethan. But when she saves his life on a robbery call, Heather realizes that he might just be the man to save her from herself.

Storm: A Kelly Family Novella

Bad boy cop Storm Kelly is on the prowl for some action. And the way he’s feeling, he doesn’t much care if it comes in the form of a bar fight or a smart, sassy woman. So when he gets off his Harley and walks into a biker bar, he’s in his element when he finds both … barroom brawl, check. Rescue the damsel in distress, check. And with any luck, that sexy damsel might just turn out to be the perfect sub he’s been searching for.

Nina Fitz is in a world of trouble when the sexy stranger comes to her rescue. Never one to resist a hot guy on a motorcycle, she quickly decides to invite this one home. And when the jerk from the bar decides he’s not through with her, Officer Storm Kelly becomes her protector. But after one night of passion with Storm, Nina is left wondering if she can handle his dark dominant side.

Frankie: A Kelly Family Novella

Frankie Kelly has fought her whole life to prove that she is just as capable as all the men in her testosterone-driven family. And now her hard work and dedication to the police K-9 program is finally beginning to pay off. But when her secret, sexy romance with her sergeant culminates in a marriage proposal, Frankie is thrown for a loop wondering if she’s ready to go public with their clandestine relationship.

John Myles is sure of two things in life - one, that he is dedicated to the K-9 program he leads at the police department. And two, that he loves Frankie Kelly more than life itself. But when she hesitates to accept his proposal, John is rattled. Especially when the job gets in the way, forcing him to send her and her K-9 partner out into the dark night in search of a dangerous murder suspect.

Marina: A Kelly Family Novella

Marina Kelly is sick to death of cops! That’s all she’s known her entire life - her father is a cop, her uncle was a cop. All of her cousins are cops. Even her two brothers and her big sister … all cops. So Marina decided early on that her life would take a much different path, getting as far away from that lifestyle as she could get. And dating a cop is totally out of the question!

Levi Hawks is well aware of Marina’s ‘no cops’ dating rule, so when a supposed chance meeting brings him face-to-face with the sexy shop owner, Levi is determined to hide the fact that he’s a police detective from her for as long as he possibly can. Or at least until he can get her to agree to go out with him!

  1. Just wanted to drop by and say thank you to Crazy Four Books for hosting a stop along my cover reveal tour! I truly appreciate it! Just a quick question for you and your readers - I love writing series as much as we all love reading them. But I'm curious to know, what is it about series that we all love so much?

    1. I'm very glad to have you here. :-)

      My favorite thing about series is continuing to see the characters that I grew fond of in additional books. I actually prefer series to stand alone books for this reason..

  2. Welcome on Crazy Four Books Lashell, we are really happy to have you here even if it's only a spotlight.

    why do i love series, usually it's because it help to see the the chracter grow or mature and when each book is another a new character we still get "news" or see more of the past ones we came to love.... i can get attached to characters so it's a way to continue the journey with them ( however i don't like at all when a book has a cliffhanger or worse several years wait between the books)

    2. Thanks for the great answers! You know for me, it's sort of like watching a soap opera. I'm a huge General Hospital fan, and reading a series is sort of the same in that I can follow the same characters that I grew so fond of and watch them grow and watch their lives progress. It makes you feel like those characters are your life-long friends. Thanks again for having me! :-)

  3. Hey Lashell, do you ever write about people you know in real life? Like...write them into your stories somehow?

    1. Andra, I tend to write a lot about cops, and my husband is actually a retired cop, and he's a biker. And there's actually a little bit of him in each of the heroes in my books. I've also used aspects of my brother and my mom and dad, so … I guess the answer to that question is yes!
