  • LOVE THE KINGS OF THE CASTLE

    King of Chatham was my first book from the Kings of the Castles Series and I am hooked. Since it is Book 2 I do feel that I need to go back and read Kings of the Castle to find out how each of the Kings came to be but London St. Charles did a wonderful job making this book stand on its own. There was so much diversity in this book you could feel the struggle that the main characters, Mariano "Reno" and Zuri went through to be together. The start of the book gave a picture into Zuri's life back in her home country. It showed the struggle that women have to face with arranged marriages and mutilation to their bodies. It showed the strength that not only her mother demonstrated by being with her husband but also in the way that she helped to free Zuri with her friends. Returning home to say goodbye to her mother was one of the hardest sections of a book I have ever read. Knowing the danger Zuri would be putting herself in showed the love a daughter truly has for her mother. When Reno goes home and realizes the type of man his father truly was it broke my heart. I know for so many men that their father is always their hero and you could see how this turned Reno's life around when he realized his dad was a racist and partnered with Zuri's dad to get her back home and away from his son. I loved how through it all Zuri and Reno's love conquered all. I do hope that we get more Skylar in the future because I loved her character and how fierce she was. I also can't wait to start the next book in this series and eventually read through all of the Kings. I love how the romance kind of takes a back seat to the mystery and the crime world. Its about not only falling in love but also making sure that people go down for their wrong doings not only to the castle but to the areas in which they live. Lastly, I can not wait to read more from London St. Charles especially her story about Detective Carter from the book. Thank you to netgalley, London St. Charles, and Marco Publishing Group for allowing me to read this ARC in exchange for my honest review.

  • Literary Perfection!

    King of Chatham by London St. Charles is book two of the nine book Kings of the Castle series penned by various female authors. Book one, Kings of the Castle is an introduction to all of the Kings but focuses on Vikkas Germaine. Books two through nine are standalones with no cliffhangers and can be read in any order, though I’m reading them in sequence. Nine former students and future Kings of The Castle are recruited by their former teacher and mentor, Khalil Germaine. He directs them to root out and eliminate the corruption that has infiltrated The Castle, a humanitarian endeavor he founded. They vow to protect The Castle and each other from future attacks. Along the way they meet some extraordinary women. This is the story of Mariano DeLuca. Mariano “Reno” DeLuca is a former architect of Italian descent. He built a state-of-the-art women’s shelter in the hood. The Second Chance at Life Women’s Shelter is a safe haven for women. Reno started the shelter in memory of his high school friend, Ebony, who was beaten to death by her boyfriend. He has a strong reaction to new client, Zuri Okusanya, and is falling for her, even though his personal policy is to not get in romantic entanglements with the women seeking shelter and protection. Zuri Okusanya is a Tanzanian Princess seeking protection at Second Chance at Life Women’s Shelter. She’s been told that she can trust Mariano DeLuca. Zuri is falling for Reno, which is ironic, since she’s running from a man. King of Chatham is a perfect accounting of Reno’s story. The main characters, Zuri and Reno, are both well-rounded and likable. Reno’s place in the world of The Castle is cemented and his personal world is revealed. Zuri is little more than a footnote in book one, but she finally becomes a living, breathing character with a complete backstory. The plot kept me interested from start to finish. The dialogue is vivid and representative of the time, place and the individual characters. As advertised, the ending is perfection that doesn’t leave you hanging from a literary cliff. King of Chatham is definitely a main dish in the multicultural literary feast served in book one. I completely enjoyed this novel and rate it an easy 5 out of 5 stars. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys multicultural romantic suspense or well-written contemporary romance. Be aware, there is explicit sexual content that may be offensive to some readers. My thanks to Independent Publishers Group and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.

  • London St. Charles Delivers

    King of Chatham is deliciously written with a blend of Italian and African cultures woven into the thread of a Metropolitan Chicago. I have followed the career of London St. Charles from The Husband We Share, Sugarcoated Deception, and now to King of Chatham which is a superb addition to this standalone Kings of the Castle series. London delves into taboo topics of forced marriages and skillfully adds devilishly handsome, Reno DeLuca, a millionaire whose past includes losing a friend through domestic violence which guides his current choice to leave the architectural world and open a shelter to protect women and children who are in desperate need. Zuri finds her way through the doors of Reno's shelter just at the point she is set to achieve a personal goal here on American soil. The far reaches of her family's power can be felt in the fear she feels knowing that her mother sacrificed everything to ensure her safety and her father would rather see her dead than not enter into the marriage he is forced her into. Soon, Zuri and Reno are embroiled in a plot orchestrated by an enemy of the Castle that also has the tentacles of Zuri’s father hand in it is well. This story, and the entire series, has a unique flair and the plots are both simple and intricate at the same time.
