Kennedy Fox is the joint pseudonym used by authors Brooke Cumberland and Lyra Parish. The romance authors came together to write books using this USA Today best-selling pen name.

The two not only share a fondness for romance novels, they also like Hallmark movies and coffee that costs too much. They also like romantic comedies, which they bond over. When not busy doing that or other things, they like to come up with new ideas for their books.

It was only a matter of time before these two came together and wrote books collectively. One day, the two decided to collaborate and had some fun coming up with new characters that they hope will make their readers not only blush but have their hearts melt too. Readers that love romance stories featuring hot and sexy alpha males and the independent, smart, and sexy women that they fall for, then check out a book by Kennedy Fox!

In addition to writing the Checkmate Duet series, they have also collaborated and written the Bedtime Reads/Make Me series, the Bishop Brothers series, the Hunter & Lennon Duet series, the Mason & Sophie Duet series, the Circle B Ranch series, the Liam & Madelyn Duet series, the Love in Isolation series, the Lawton Ridge Duet series, the Drew & Courtney series, the Room Mates series, the Only One series, the Mockingbird Duet series, and the Texas Heat series.

This is War: Travis & Viola is the first novel in the Checkmate Duet series by Kennedy Fox. This is where readers are introduced to Viola and Travis for the first time.

Viola does not like Travis at all, and it’s been that way for a while. But Travis just loves to get under her skin. For her part, Viola thinks that Travis King is a huge jerk. The two of them just do not get along.

He makes fun of her just for being a regular good girl and when it comes to her high standards, mocks those too. She finds him to be not only cruel, but crass too. Somehow despite all of this he enjoys a reservoir of confidence that is enough to go for two lifetimes. She doesn’t just dislike him. She hates him.

That shouldn’t be such a big deal, right? Plenty of people hate each other. But it would be one thing if he were easy to avoid. That is simply not the case. He just happens to be the best friend of her older brother and his roommate on top of that. With all of that considered, Viola ends up seeing Travis more than she would ever want to or choose to on his own.

That also means she sees more of him physically, which is unavoidable. He’s got beautiful eyes and abs to die for, perfectly sculpted in every way. She feels that these features are wasted on him, as Travis is so arrogant. The fact that he’s so good looking when he’s such a jerk makes Viola dislike him even more than she already does.

She hates to admit that it might be coming from a place other than hate, too. She has had a crush on him ever since she was little, like ten years old. But now that she’s grown up, he’s made it clear that he doesn’t feel the same way. Or maybe that’s a wall that he’s hiding behind, so he doesn’t have to admit to anything.

The only thing that she sees him doing is getting under her skin. It appears to be what he likes to do best. But the thing is, there was always the hint of a flame burning between them. So, it’s only a matter of time with the two of them interacting that she has a moment of weakness. One night, going against her own judgment, Viola allows Travis into her bed.

She finally gives in and the two get together. But even though they’re together, that doesn’t mean that Travis is going to magically change. He’s probably about to be the same old guy that he ever was, with Viola having to put up with it. But if this is the way that he wants to play, Viola is ready.

She’s ready to play him at his own game and see him lose. Can Travis be bested? Will she get the checkmate that she craves, and will the two be together? Or was that simply a one-night stand that will never happen again? Anything could happen, and when it does, Viola is going to be ready.

This book is for mature readers only! To find out what happens in the end, get your hands on a copy of This is War and find out whether Travis and Viola can ever be more than enemies.

This is Love: Travis & Viola is the second novel in the Checkmate Duet series by Kennedy Fox. If you loved the events of the first romance novel, follow it up with the exciting second installment in the series!

When it comes to Travis, he’s always played it off like he doesn’t have feelings for Viola. She’s always had a crush on him, and he’s been careful to never indulge her in it. Of course, until they have an unbridled night of passion together.

In his opinion, Viola Fisher is as close to perfection as you can get. She doesn’t take him too seriously and is not afraid to let him know when she’s judging him. She hates his one-night stands and isn’t afraid to let him know which of his habits she finds distasteful.

She’s beautiful and smart, and all in all, just about as good as you can get. Travis can admit it to himself that he wants her. She has always been in that off-limits zone, considering that she’s the little sister of his best friend. Otherwise, he would have moved on her a long time ago. That’s one of the major things that has kept him away.

The other thing keeping him away is the fact that Viola hates him. Like actually hates him, more than just dislike. It may be the way she chooses to feel, but Travis can’t help that he wants her. She’s smart and sexy, and he hangs on those curves. He wants her more than ever. He just has to change her mind about him before he gets her.

He’ll show her that he’s finished playing games. Now they’re playing by her rules. Travis will let her win the battle, but he’s not going to let her win the war. Read this book to the end to find out what happens!
