What Lies Within Us by Kiki Howell & Gina Kincade

What Lies Within Us by Kiki Howell & Gina Kincade


Amazon Top 100 Bestseller in Gothic Fiction & Occult Horror 

After receiving a letter from an aunt she never knew existed, Kyna Hughes travels to Ireland only to find out her whole life has been a series of well-orchestrated lies. 

Suddenly, this poor girl from the foothills of the Alleghany Mountains is thrust into a life of not only the wealthy and affluent, but of dark magic and secret societies. 

As Kyna learns of the magic hidden inside her, purposefully stunted for her protection as she grew up, she must now battle mystical hauntings—the result of curses—while getting a crash course in utilizing her powers. 

Kidnappings and satanic weddings become her daily events as she struggles not to lose her heart to one of two men—a former Navy SEAL hired to protect her, or a wizard hired to train her. 

Soon she will realize just how true it is that “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

Can’t tell you how truly magical that sounds.        5 GOLD HEARTS


Beauty stole her already shallow breath.  While that is an abbreviated quote/line from the story, it so aptly summed up my reaction & feelings to this story!  I have read stories by both Gina & Kiki on their own, but this is my first time reading a magical/paranormal/occult/gothic romance collaboration between these two authors and it blew me away!  Blew me away right into this beautifully amazing & magically dark World where I was transported into the unknown, completely captivated & riveted, living it, experiencing it all as if I was actually there, as if I was Kyna!!  I wouldn't trade that for anything!  Especially the hunk o'man part!  Wink   This is a somewhat deep, intense kind of read, but in a good way!  The detailed descriptions of everything from the storm to the magical objects and spells brings this whole new dynamic to the story, enriching it, adding depth, bringing to life every single part of the story, no matter how big, small or even how inconsequential it *may* seem.   It truly is What Lies Within Us that makes this story the magical gem that it is!  I know just how tremendously talented Gina & Kiki both are, but when you combine that talent... and then add in their genuine gift for crafting stories you can’t put down, characters that you love (or hate), storylines that keep you reading well into the night and have you actually living the story with & as the characters...WOW!!  Just WOW!  You get one phenomenal powerhouse of talent in epic proportions and a book that you wish was 1,000 pages longer!!  Other stories, no matter how fantastic they are, seem pale in comparison to Kyna's story.  It truly is “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."  All I can say is that I hope they plan on writing a lot more books together because I am as addicted as one fangirl can possibly be!!  I have been caught in their spells, charmed, enchanted mind, body, spirit and soul.





GINA KINCADE - Ms. Gina Kincade has been writing erotic paranormal romance books and erotic short stories since she was seventeen years old. Her first and second traditional publications were erotic short stories in a well-respected men's magazine under an alternate pseudonym.

She writes everything from contemporary mainstream romance, to high heat M/F, M/M, Ménage, BDSM, and fetish. Her evil little vampires and were-creatures will rip out your heart without thinking twice and then engage in steamy, explicit sex scenes.

Gina writes under a total of five pseudonyms to-date in other genres, including YA and children's.


A busy mom to three children, she lives in her wild household of two rambunctious dogs, a devoted, loving cat who believes herself to be royalty, and twelve crazy little chickens. She loves healthy home cooking, gardening, warm beaches, fast cars, and horseback riding.


Gina is also the C.E.O of Naughty Nights Press, a quality publisher of erotica, contemporary romance, and paranormal fiction.


Ms. Kincade's life is full, time is never on her side, and she wouldn't change a moment of it!


KIKI HOWELL - Ever since she was young, Kiki Howell has loved to listen to a well-woven tale with real characters, inspired plots, and delightful resolutions. Kiki could spend hours lost in a book, and soon she knew that creating lives, loves, and losses with just words had to be the greatest thing that she could do. To that end, she pursued her study of literature and writing, earning a bachelor’s degree in English. She then followed in a Master’s program in Creative Writing.



She has now had over fifty stories published between eleven different publishers.  She could not be more thrilled or grateful to see her creations polished and out in the real world. In May, 2011, Kiki was chosen as an Ohioana Book Festival author for her novel, Torn Asunder. She's also had three flash fiction stories win writing contests. Since the fall of 2013, she's had several novels make the Amazon Top 100 Bestsellers Lists in categories like Paranormal, Suspense, Gothic Fiction and Occult Horror. She's even been listed in the Top 100 Bestselling Horror Authors on Amazon a few times.
