Season, Unforgettable
Keta Diablo – Award-Winning and Amazon Bestselling Author

About Season, Unforgettable
* New Adult Thriller/Romance
*Finalist* Independent Author Network Book Awards

Season Scrimshaw isn't selling the land her parents left her when they died, not even to the gorgeous Rann Brogan who saved her life in the forest. Especially not after she finds out he was in the woods surveying herproperty. 
Rann's mother, Charlotte, owns a large land development company. She wants Season’s property to put up a strip of luxurious, lakefront condos and Charlotte always gets what she wants. She sends Rann on a mission to cement the deal. To say Rann and his mother have had a normal mother/son relationship would be a stretch…a big stretch, but he’s always done her bidding. 
This time it’s different. Rann hasn’t been able to get the beautiful Season out of his mind. While on his mission to secure the property, he realizes how much Season loves the land, and…he realizes somewhere along the line, Season has stolen his heart.
He soon discovers his mother will go to any length to get what she wants…including murder. Lives spiral out of control, secrets and lies take center stage. Rann is forced to choose between his mother and the woman he loves. 
And he’s forced to become as dangerous and as lethal as Charlotte.  
* A stand-alone Contemporary New Adult/Thriller.
Praise for Season, Unforgettable
"WOW! Diablo has a great new hit here! You will enjoy this from beginning to end. This is my honest opinion: I loved this story and would have loved for it to just kept going. I'm sure that everyone has read a book that they could have enjoyed it no matter how long it was. This is one of those books." Kayla Sue, Amazon, 5 stars

"Keta Diablo has timed each piece of her romantic puzzle to perfection. As they begin to fall into place, I found myself lost in the entanglements of two worlds colliding, while being warped by evil. Hang on tight; this ride is full of twists, turns and the power of this author's imagination. I can definitely say, I never thought this tale would unfold the way it did, no cookie cutter writing from this author!" Tome Tender, 5 Stars

"When disaster strikes, it hits hard and no character sees it coming. The antagonist in the story, sadly for the main characters, is as smart as they are bad, so the plan nearly succeeds far too well. I liked the story very much, enjoyed the ending, and I hope the author does another story in this world with the Matt and Bernadette's story." The Leisure Zone, 4.5 Stars

"I thought it was going to be a normal chase through fall in love, fight with mom, kind of story, but I was pleasantly surprised when the story changed. Loved the twist as it was quite dark, and unexpected, but worked beautifully for the story. Don't want to give away too much for those of you yet to read the book. I enjoyed it." Cashmere, 5 Stars

Excerpt:
About to reach for her cell in the passenger seat, Season checked her rearview mirror first. A cloud of dust had formed behind her car, a whirling dervish that screeched fast and furious. If it didn’t slow down, and there wasn’t a lane on either side to pass her, how would it navigate around her?
 Kaboom! The car slammed into her tailgate. Her neck whipped forward and then back again. Full-blown terror snaked down her spine. The car hadn’t stopped; it was still swerving and swaying behind her. She didn’t dare pull over. This was no accident but an intentional act. She wracked her brain. Had she pulled out in front of someone unknowingly? What about the clerk at the store? God, she couldn’t even remember what he looked like. Had he followed her?
Kaboom! A scream seized her throat. The Denali veered to the right. Tires squealed, hers or the other vehicle’s she didn’t know. Curve-eternal still loomed ahead with no driveways or turnarounds in sight. Frantic now, she searched the seat for her phone. Her hand met flat leather. It must have fallen during the last ram.
With one eye on the gravel road, one in the rearview mirror, a beam of sunlight illuminated the maniac’s car. Spiders crawled over her skin. Silver SUV? No, it can’t be! An engine roared and then brakes squealed. She clung to the steering wheel and prayed.
 Bam! The Denali screamed its outrage or was it the sound of broken glass? A steep bank ahead flashed in her line of vision. Dear God, help me! Oh no, oh, no. Like a spinning top, the Denali flipped, ass over tea kettle. Immense pain shot through her body. Something warm and sticky ran down her face. Why hadn’t the air bag deployed? Her vision faded in and out, and she couldn’t form a rational thought. Oh, Pearl, we’re dying. Duna! Oh, my God, Duna, I-I shouldn’t have listened to you this time, should have followed my aura meter.
 Lying snake.

Fabulous trade review for THINGS SHE'S SEEN



“Things She’s Seen is a flashy, troubling depiction of abusive power. In its variegated darkness, it brings home the healing message that sometimes, real families are the ones people choose for themselves."  —Foreward Reviews

Em's Halloween Tarot Reading




Em is the main character in THINGS SHE’S SEEN (Northern Circle Coven #2). Em was exploited as a child psychic medium, but escaped as a teenager to live on the streets. While on the run, she and her lover, Alice, hung out behind the scenes at the Royal Palm Theater in Tampa. Em made spare cash by giving the actors messages from their deceased mentors and grandparents. Alice read cards for a living. Often times, they’d spend the night in the closed theater, drinking and goofing around on the stage. 
Late one Halloween night, after the actors and employees had left the theater, Alice got out her tarot cards and did a one card reading for Em. Just a single card, drawn as they sat centerstage with a bottle of cheap wine, a bag of candy corn, and only a candle for light. 
The drawn card depicted a woman petting a lion, controlling it with compassion and composure rather than force.  An infinity symbol floated in the air above the woman’s head.
 “The Strength Card,” Alice said. “It symbolizes courage, confidence, and passion. The triumph of intelligence over brute strength, and morality over evil. Calming inner storms of doubt, leads to becoming the true master of your own mind and abilities, and control over all aspects of your world. Heroic. Just and righteous.” 
Em laughed. “The cards sure missed the mark this time. Heroic? Confident? Definitely, not me.”
“That’s where you’re wrong. The card is you—on all levels.” Alice’s eyes brightened, glistening and full of innuendo. “The card also indicates a person who has an adventurous and unconventional romantic life.”
Heat washed Em’s face. She leaned in, pushed back a stray curl of dark hair from Alice’s face, and kissed her cheek gently. “That part is true, for sure.” 
As Alice put the tarot cards away and they then finished the bottle of wine, Em didn’t begin to realize just how true the reading would prove to be. But years later she would recall it, when a haunted man returned to her life and she received a very different one card draw from Alice. A card revealed to her in a nightmare. 
The Death card.
