Dark Slayer Book Trailer + Promo


The dark destiny of a hungry woman. The terrifying fate of a cursed man. Now after a century of longing, the instinct for survival has united them. Prepare yourself for the new Carpathian novel by “the Queen of paranormal romance” (USA Today).

A rumor has persisted in the vampire world of a dark slayer—a woman—who travels with a wolf pack and who destroys any vampire who crosses her path. Mysterious, elusive and seemingly impossible to kill, she is the one hunter who strikes terror into the hearts of the undead.

She is Ivory Malinov. Her only brethren, the wolves. Long ago betrayed by her people, abandoned by her family, and cast out by everyone she held dear, Ivory has lived a century without companionship or love. She has sustained her sanity by the habit of the hunt and the custom of the feeding. Until the night she picks up the scent of a man, her unexpected salvation. Her lifemate. The curse of all Carpathian women.

He is Razvan. Branded a criminal, detested and feared, he is a dragonseeker borne of one of the greatest Carpathian lineages, only to be raised as its most despised—and captive—enemy. Fleeing from his lifetime of imprisonment, Razvan now seeks the dawn to end his terrible existence. Instead he has found his deliverance in the Dark Slayer.

In spirit, in flesh and blood, in love, and in war, Ivory and Razvan are made for each other. For as long as they dare to live.

Tempted - House of Night #6 by P.C. Cast Promo



So you’d think after banishing an immortal being and a fallen High Priestess, saving Stark’s life, biting Heath, getting a headache from Erik, and almost dying, Zoey Redbird would catch a break. Sadly, a break is not in the House of Night school forecast for the High Priestess in training and her gang. Juggling three guys is anything but a stress reliever, especially when one of them is a sexy Warrior who is so into protecting Zoey that he can sense her emotions. Speaking of stress, the dark force lurking in the tunnels under the Tulsa Depot is spreading, and Zoey is beginning to believe Stevie Rae could be responsible for a lot more than a group of misfit red fledglings. Aphrodite’s visions warn Zoey to stay away from Kalona and his dark allure, but they also show that it is Zoey who has the power to stop the evil immortal. Soon it becomes obvious that Zoey has no choice: if she doesn’t go to Kalona he will exact a fiery vengeance on those closest to her. Will Zoey have the courage to chance losing her life, her heart, and her soul?


Find out in the next spectacular installment in the House of Night series, TEMPTED.

Book Description:







He’ll fulfill her wildest fantasies… but only if she believes.



Leo Dunne has been searching his entire life for the one person born just for him. He finds her working in his own company, but the shy little Ruby Halloway constantly hides from him. He hatches a devilish plot with her best friend to bring her out of her shell, and the result proves her desire is more than a match for his own.


Ruby has had the hots for her boss for some time now, but she knows business and pleasure shouldn’t mix.
While that can’t stop a girl from dreaming, she sticks by her guns and does her best never to be alone with the handsome CEO. Until the company masquerade party, where she discovers a passion with him that leaves a mark on her soul.




A family emergency calls Leo away, and rather than spend one night out of Ruby’s arms, he convinces her to go with him. With his brother’s life on the line, it’s vital she learn how to deal with who, and what, her new lover
really is…before it’s too late.


Warning: This book contains explicit sex, graphic language, some violence, a bit of bondage, and a Sidhe Lord determined to claim and protect what is his.


















Book Review:







Ruby doesn’t consider her a beautiful. At least not one that her boss would think sexy. Boy was she ever wrong. Ruby would definitely lose that bet.


Leo has long craved Ruby ever since he first caught her scent. But the object always seems to leave the room every time Leo entered. He’s finally had enough. Leo seeks the help of Ruby’s best friend to get her all to him.


Ruby has long dreamed about being with her sex on wheels boss, Leo Dunne. When she’s dared to wear a sexy costume by her best friend for the company’s Halloween, Ruby discovers Leo isn’t going let another night go by without knowing the feeling of her lips.


Leo has his kitten exactly where he wants her. Just as he’s about to make a true bond with Ruby, his family past comes back to haunt him.




Dana Marie Bell… All I can say you have such a talent for creating new worlds, sexy heroes and heroines with attitude. I think you may be a secret and magical talent that will have many a reader fall head over heels in love with your novels.




Dare To Believe introduce to sexy characters that will learn more about each other than either thought possible?


Readers will feel that they are right along Ruby and Leo’s fight to be with each other.


Leo’s brother is kidnapped by rival family who seek to get him to marry said rival’s family daughter. The rival’s family daughter, Kaitlynn is an obsessive and psycho bitch.


She does plenty of damage to both families. The only that could stop is currently out the story but can Duncan make it in time before Kaitlynn destroys them all?


Ms. Bell has captured many readers’ hearts with her books. Just when I think her books can’t get any better, they do. I applaud Dana Marie Bell for her continue success and talent with each new book and series.





For those readers that have yet to be charmed by Ms. Bell books will discover that in just about all her books, she gives a glimpse and teasers to supporting characters having their own book in the future. I definitely enjoyed reading every page of Dare To Believe.


I am both happy and sad because now that I finished reading Dare To Believe, because now I will have to wait patiently until the second addition to The Gray Court series.


I recommend Dare To Believe to all who love reading paranormal romance.


Dare To Believe is my Top Choice of the Week!












I give Dare To Believe a rating of 5 Stars.

Book Description:










Her deadly dreams leave her in grave danger . . .

Since half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her undead lover Bones met six years ago, they've fought against the rogue undead, battled a vengeful Master vampire, and pledged their devotion with a blood bond.


Now it's time for a vacation. But their hopes for a perfect Paris holiday are dashed when Cat awakes one night in terror. She's having visions of a vampire named Gregor who's more powerful than Bones and has ties to her past that even Cat herself didn't know about.

Gregor believes Cat is his and he won't stop until he has her. As the battle begins between the vamp who haunts her nightmares and the one who holds her heart, only Cat can break Gregor's hold over her. She'll need all the power she can summon in order to bring down the baddest bloodsucker she's ever faced . . . even if getting that power will result in an early grave.















Book Review:








Cat Crawfield is one vacation with her undead husband, Bones. They’re currently trying to relax in one of the most romantic cities in the world, Paris. Just when things have finally gotten back to normal for Bones and Cat, trouble arrives.


Looks like Bones has finally met his undead match for competition for his ‘wife’ Cat. A master vampire from Cat’s past has resurfaced with a claim on her. A claim that Cat is not claimed and married to Bones.


Bones isn’t going to let someone just come between him and Cat. What he doesn’t count that Cat can’t stop herself from trying to do that right thing--even if it might destroy her and the only man she’s ever loved.




Cat and Bones are back--back with a vengeance. Readers will fall in love with all over again with these characters. Ms. Frost will remind fans again why we love the Night Huntress series.


Cat and Bones marriage is put the test; Their mistrust of each other soon puts more than one life at stake. They are in the fight for the lives; if they don’t kill each other first.


Jeaniene Frost has many readers craving more on her Night Huntress series. Destined for an Early Grave will have more than one reader will be reminded of just how fantastic this series is. Plenty of readers will remember just why they first fell in love with Cat and Bones in Halfway to the Grave.


Jeaniene brings back the action, suspense, drama and love that make the Destined for an Early Grave an upcoming bestselling sensation.


The main characters are put through hell and back. I just love that. It might turn some off, but I found Ms. Frost's book an absolute treasure.


Many of the supporting cast returns to help Cat and Bones escape the hell Gregor is putting them through. Not everyone will make it and many lives will never be the same again.


I definitely had many nail biting and hair pulling moments while reading the newest addition to the Night Huntress series. Cat and Bones are two of the most stubborn characters I’ve read. They not only put themselves, the people around and me through hell. It sure made me want to scream at them more than once. After I finished reading Destined for an Early grave, I come to realize that it was worth it to lose some hair and nails. The pain Bones and Cat go through was just to fascinating that I could not take my eyes of this book until the very end. I loved reading every minute of it!















I give Destined for an Early Grave a rating of 5 Stars.

Book Description:






For centuries war raged between the humans and Aeternus vampires—until courageous efforts on both sides forged a fragile peace.

But the rogue Necrodreniacs will never be controlled—addicted as they are to the death-high . . . and bloody chaos.

Since witnessing the murder of her mother, Antoinette Petrescu has burned with fiery hatred for the vampire race—even for Christian Laroque, the noble, dangerously handsome Aeternus who rescued her. Now an elite Venator, Antoinette must reluctantly accept Christian's help to achieve her vengeance—even as he plots to use the beautiful, unsuspecting warrior as bait to draw out the bloodthirsty dreniacs.














Book Review:






Antoinette has come a long way since the hell she was put through as child. She is one the world’s best Venators or best known as vampire slayers. Antoinette doesn’t care what kind of vampire one is, dead is dead to her.

That is until she meets one of the most infamous vampires alive, the Aeternus, Christian Laroque. He‘s not out to kill the human race no matter what Antoinette stubbornly believes. She would rather stake herself than believe that Christian is one of the good guys. No matter how much she is drawn to him, Antoinette isn’t going to let Christian get to her.


Christian has long wanted to meet the woman Antoinette has become. He may not put up with her attitude, he can’t help but want to get Antoinette in between the sheets of his bed.


Things soon escalate between Christian and Antoinette in more ways than one, when they are on mission to find out who’s been killing important figures of both their worlds.


A terrible blast from Antoinette’s past comes back to haunt to finish what he started all those years ago.


Antoinette soon has to face her fears to overcome the trauma of her mother’s murder once again with the return of Dante. She realizes the only way to find out what Dante is really up to is to team up with Christian. Antoinette and Christian soon realize that there is hell of lot more going on than what they first thought.


It’s definitely going to be the fight of their lives. There is a lot more going on than Antoinette thirst for revenge. Will she come to terms of her mother’s murder? Will the hero and heroine uncover the mastermind behind all these murders?

Antoinette is one bad ass Venator. But when comes to personal relationships, she really sucks. Luckily she’s reacquainted with Christian, who save Antoinette and brother when she was a child. Now that she’s grown up, Antoinette has become a force to be reckoned with. She’s overcome a lot since her childhood. The only thing that many wish would change is her attitude to vampires. Not all out to get her blood. Christian helps her through the hell she’s been through. He is not just going to stand by and let someone destroy the one person that makes him feel alive.


Tracey O’Hara debut of Night’s Cold Kiss is anything but cold. She introduces readers to a brand new vampire slayer warrior, Antoinette Petrescu and her vampire hero, Christian Laroque. This is one jam packed thriller with just enough love scenes to keep plenty of readers happy and thoroughly entertained.


Antoinette and Christian just heat up many pages in Night’s Cold Kiss. They have such amazing chemistry together. Their scenes kick butt. The pull between them is undeniable.


One particular character that just stands out is Viktor. He definitely was one of my favorites beside the hero/heroine of Night’s Cold Kiss.


Night’s Cold Kiss will become a top hit bestseller of 2009.




















I give Night’s Cold Kiss a very special rating of 5 Screams.

Only then can she realize that true love awaits, if only she believes...








Book Review:








All Astiria wanted to do was enjoy her enjoy her vacation given to her by sister and brother in law. But all she got was annoying playboys trying ‘score.’ Luckily for Astiria she had her trusty purple gargoyle, Max. She is encouraged to try an online game called Fantasy Quest. Astiria creates her fantasy consort, Lerik.


Lerik has waited for ages for his chosen consort. He sent his loyal servant, Max. Max picks Astiria and is finally happy to be able to communicate with his Astiria. Before they can consummate their relationship, a dastardly character Marsoon claims that Astiria is his.




Since Astiria is not considering of age she must complete her quest to prove herself. If she doesn’t pass her quest, it could be the end for Lerik and Max. Game Over.


Tina Gerow, popular author of books Vortex Blues and Take It Off - has returned to wow readers with her new book.


Fantasy Quest is remarkable book that’s also a fast paced page turner. Readers will not only love this interactive world but also love the very loveable character of Max. Who couldn’t love the adorable and sweet Max?

Is love enough to save us?


Jennifer Allen is not who she seems to be. Her friends, family, and neighbors all think they know the twenty-six year old automobile engineer, but they couldn’t be more wrong.


Jen isn’t even human. Sent by her government to explore the Earth and it’s global warming crisis she is to report back if conditions are right for her aquatic species to colonize the world.


She is dedicated to her mission, until she meets Brent Ashcroft, a handsome and sexy biology graduate student. Jen can’t deny her attraction to him. Will she endanger herself by loving Brent or will she help usher in an alien invasion?







Book Review:








To whom it may concern. I come to you with tale unlike any other. It’s a tale depicting the one Jennifer Alan. It will show to others the adventures will go through to. Not to mention to show Jen the true mean of love and sex.




To whom it may concern. I bring you another exciting person named Brent. Whose sole purpose in life it seems to make Jen a very happy woman. You will come to learn like Jen, there is more than meets the eye.


Jen‟alein, a native of the Aquellian Empire, was sent to scout Earth to see if it’s good enough Aquellian’s to live on.


But what Jen didn’t count on in the insignificant planet a human worthy of saving. Nor did she count on developing those damn human feeling called love.


Brent seems like an ordinary man who seems to want to put a smile on Jen’s sour face. He slowly manages to crack the wall Jen has around her heart. It sure gives him points for being the reason for Jen to be a very satisfied woman.


Just when Jen and Brent are at crucial moment in their lives, she has to leave the city. Jen promises to keep in touch with Brent but this would not be a great book with a little bit of angst involved.


Christopher Newman is great writer of many books like the one titled, A Terrible Twist of Fate. Mr. Newman now brings readers a new take of alien invasion. His new twist on aliens taking over humans can only be described as fresh and original.


Jen is her faults but we can’t help but love her attitude. The ups and downs she goes through by being with Brent.


Brent isn’t going to just let the best thing that ever happened disappear from his life. He is going to be in the fight of his life. He does whatever it takes to bring back home the love of his life.


I can’t but love Jen’s Tale. It was definitely something in a class of its own. If you’re crazy about science fiction then Jen’s Tale is the one for you.



To it may concern, this one story you won’t be able to stop reading to the climatic end.









Be on the look out for Christopher Newman's upcoming release Love Bites Back. Coming soon from Freya's Bower





I give Jen’s Tale a rating of 5 Stars.

Book Description:










Black dragon Holden Antaeus isn't looking for a mate. His life is filled with family, work, and dating. Women adore him and he's never short of offers for sex, but a relationship isn't something he's interested in. When Holden's brother Sean hires a new executive for Antaeus International, Holden's whole world, and everything he's ever believed about himself, is blown to bits.


Garret Renquist is a green dragon, intelligent, witty, bi-sexual, and hot for Holden. Despite the fact that Holden is positive he's heterosexual, the moment he meets Garret, something happens inside him. What follows is a journey through stereotypes and ingrained beliefs as Holden struggles with the fact that his destined mate is a man.











Book Review:












This is Holden. A sexy man who has yet to find a woman that can say no to him. He has yet to meet the woman that would want to mate with. Is world is turn on its axis when he meets his family’s newest employee, Garret Renquist. With just one look at Garrett, Holden is unnerved because he always thought his mate would be female.




Garrett Renquist is the newest member to team Antaeus. He had no idea that at the first meet with his employers, Garrett would meet his mate. Garrett is instantly head over heels in love with reluctant mate. He knows that it will take time to get Holden to realize they are met to be.




Fire Season is off to well round erotic romance with slowly built up sexual tension that only Lex Valentine can bring to readers. Love knows no boundaries as Ms. Valentine characters Holden and Garrett discover.




With the turn of each page Garrett reluctantly goes slowly to open Holden’s heart to a new height of passion.




But will Holden face the truth and realize that Garrett is the one he’s waited so long for? Or will Holden lose out on the best thing that ever happened to him?












There is so much love and angst between these two men.
I couldn’t help but fall under their spell. Lex Valentine is created a fan for life in me.




Holden is no nonsense man. Garrett is a man who wears his heart on his sleeve. Yet together they surrender to a love worth fighting for. Just as they finally come to realize this it, they are put to the test when they have to separate. Oh how heartbreaking these scenes were for me. *sniff*




These characters are in the ride of a lifetime. I can only imagine what will happen once their story continues. A much deserved kudos and praise to Lex Valentine on this addition to The Darkworld Series.












I give Fire Season a rating of 5 Stars.

Living in New Jersey--the state that boasts the most malls per capita--Kat's favorite recreational activity is a no-brainer: shopping. But when she discovers that her husband, Griff, has been hiding a secret bank account, her joyful consumerism suddenly loses its appeal. Are their fights about money more serious than she understood? Is he, as her friends suggest, preparing for a divorce? Just in case, Kat decides it's time to start saving.Drastic times call for drastic measures: Kat starts by canceling cable and kicking her $240-a-month Starbucks habit. But what starts out as a simple effort to cut costs becomes an over-the-top obsession when Kat joins an eclectic but lovable group of savers called the Penny Pinchers Club. Soon she is pumping her gas at dawn (when it is thicker) and serving dinner made from food she retrieved at the grocery store dumpster. Kat is saving money, to be sure, but what she's really saving is time--time she spends with Griff, their two kids...and an old flame who resurfaces at precisely the wrong moment, offering Kat a life where money is no object.

Book Description:








Raised by the Prince of Antaka, Celina Rodriquez is forced to leave the island and live life in America. Refusing to follow in the footsteps of her mother, she promises herself she will not fall for the charms of any American.





When Drake is asked to teach the Antakian princess the way women in California live, he thought he'd be busy teaching her about movies, yachting, and the local fashion. Instead he finds himself losing his heart to a woman who swears she has sexual moves that will rock his world, and thinks nothing of walking around naked.









Book Review:










Celina is royal princess sent to America to stay with an American man to teach her the ways of California’s women.
She thinks she is sent to America by her father as punishment for the actions of her deceased mother. Celina is unaware of the truth. So, she sets out to do what ever it takes to be nothing her mother. Celina was refusing to fall for any American man--no matter how charming and sexy he is.


Drake finds princess Celina innocence enduring. What he knocks him off his radar is how sexy Celina can be while still be so innocent. She brings out all kinds of feelings in Drake. That leaves him wanting to ask Celina - Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?




Debra Kayn brings readers a charming romantic tale of two people from different worlds. Both characters of Drake and Celina know exactly what they want and won’t let anyone get in their way of their one shot of happiness.


Ms. Kayn’s gives equal time to the supporting characters that fit in with the main character’s storyline. They don’t lose their sight of what is stake.


Celina was playing at first but all the pain seems to flies away once she is close with Drake.


Celina discovers the true meaning of love and family. She realizes just how lucky she is to have the Prince as her father. For Drake is to show Celina that their love is worth fighting for. He won’t just let her slip through his fingers.


Betraying The Prince may not be enjoyed by all readers. But I couldn’t help but enjoy the banter and love scenes between Drake and Celina.


You can just imagine the emotions that appear on the faces of Drake and Celina--which you can’t help but say aww!


There is much going on beside the courtship of Drake and Celina. It has a little bit of everything to keep more one reader entertained.






I give Betraying The Prince a rating of 4 Stars.

Book Review of Keeper Of The Way by Shirin Dubbin


Keeper of the Way by Shirin Dubbin

Book Description:
 
 
 





 
Aftermath cleaner, Nia Mora, is destined to die—tonight.
Severin, the inscrutable and utterly delicious harbinger of death has already arrived to bear witness… but damn his duty. He will not stand by and watch. Not when Nia Mora may be the Fae's last hope of survival.




Damn Severin and his heroic delusions.



Fae-tech mogul, Zan Wynn, is equally drawn to Nia'Mora and as the quintessential--yes, those are your panties dropping--bad boy he can't be bothered to play fair.
Oblivious to her doom, Nia Mora's concern is for the missing Way, the very essence of the Fae and the reason they are trapped in the mortal world.
That and the small matter of remaining single when she can't deny Severin's power over her or Zan Wynn's hypnotic pull.
But is the nefarious Wynn a second potential mate or the prelude to her destruction?
 
 





 
 
 
 
Book Review:






 
 
Let me introduce you to the heroine, Mia Mora who’s the best at what she does. Nia is aftermath cleaner. She is responsible for keeping humans from discovering their corpses. It’s a dirty job, but someone has to do it.







Nia is an elf determined not to find her bonded mate. Her family can’t help but worry about her not being bonded. Just like every great romance the heroine has no choice because fate will bite in the ass when it comes to one’s mate.





Severin first saw Nia at the cleaners, he is drawn to her. When he should be happy to have found his potential mate, Severing realizes that Nia is slated to die tonight.
 




 
 
 
All Nia wanted to do this day was to clean up and to be there for the birth of her friend’s baby.
All Severin wants is to keep his ‘mate’ alive long enough to claim her. Other people are not willing to let Nia and Severin become bonded mates.







Nia wants Severin more than she ever wanted anyone. But deep down she is scared to open herself to the one destined to be her mate.







Ms. Dubbin has created enchanting new world where readers will open their hearts to the heroine, Nia. Readers will sympathize with Nia as she overcomes her fears to open her heart to Severin.








Even though Keeper of the Way is short novel--Ms. Dubbin will make you forget that once you read this tale of romance.






What really stood out for me after reading Keeper of the Way is the way Severin and Nia just sizzled with passion every time they where near each other. That in span of one day their passions heated not only the pages of Keeper of the Way but it also will have readers trying to get a cold one to cool down.






With every look, Severin managed to take Nia’s breath away. Severin and Nia’s bittersweet romance is a tale that blossoms into one unforgettable love.






 
I give Keeper of the Way a rating 4 ½ Stars.

Book Description:
 





 
 
Eve Wilson was the victim of the villain in Don’t Tell, an assault which resulted in disfiguring injury. After the incident, Eve retreated into the virtual realm, seeking refuge from the public eye. Now, with the help of a surgeon, her face is mostly restored and she has returned to the real world. Now a graduate student, her goal is to research the use of the virtual world as therapy to improve self-esteem. But when a string of suspicious suicides connected to her Internet activities leads homicide detective Noah Webster to her door, Eve is forced back into an intoxicating world of Web sites, alternate identities, and secret passions. A world where her experience and expertise are key … and where she becomes a player in a deadly game, trapped in the fight of her life.
 
 





 
 
 
 
 
Book Review:








 
Karen Rose re-introduces Eve Wilson as the heroine of her own story. Eve Wilson has created a new life herself after all the hell she’s been through.





She has plenty of support from her loved ones and friends. Eve works hard at both school and work. She has no time for a love life. Not that she is trying to hard to find someone special. Or maybe Eve has already met that special man.






Things take a turn for worse at her school. Someone is killing woman from her test online subjects.






Noah Webster has been sober for now ten years. He goes regularly to Sal’s bar where Eve works just to see her. Eve is the first woman that makes him get over the pain he’s felt since he lost his wife. Yet Noah keeps to himself because he has no clue as how to approach Eve. What neither knows is that there is a serial killer out to destroy any chance that Eve and Noah have at romance.
 



 
 
Karen Rose is writing goddess. Ms. Rose just knows how to keep readers addicted from the very beginning just like her female characters to the online site Shadowland. I Can See You is one suspenseful thrill ride that has more twists and turns than a theme park rollercoaster.






This book has many back stories intertwined with the main characters storyline. All characters in Ms. Rose’s I Can See You are flawed but that what makes them more realistic. Ms. Rose doesn't leave any of the characters hanging--they all have just the right amount of time to win over all readers. The readers will not be able to put this book down into the very end.






A warning to readers--remember to keep the lights on at night because you just might become paranoid.







I found myself smiling for the small miracles at Eve and Noah’s moments when they started to bond. Even through the fear and suspense from the serial killer.





Noah is worried more for Eve. With nothing going right in the investigation especially since Noah finds his fellow co-workers suspicious. Is there anyone who he can trust with the woman that is slowly winning his heart.





Eve has become a force to be reckoned with. She is not going to stop by and let someone just get rid of her.




I Can See You is my top pick for book of the month.
 




I give I Can See You a rating of 5 Screams!

TODAY’S THE BIG DAY! LYCAN TIDES is now available


Giving in to the lure of passion could lead to disaster…
Guardians of Light, Book 3





Selkie princess Finora is all too familiar with betrayal. Betrayal by her curiosity, which led her from the sea.




By her body, which yielded to a handsome human under the full moon. By the human, who hid her skin and took its location with him to his grave.








After seven years of searching, she no longer believes in miracles.




Trystan is a werewolf on a mission to find and return dragons to his homeland. He follows a slim lead westward across an unfamiliar sea. Gravely wounded in a pirate attack, his ship foundered in a storm and sinking fast, he comes face to face with the most unexpected rescuers—Finora and her two half-human children.




Selkie and werewolf. Both creatures ruled by the moon. The attraction is instant, mutual, undeniable…and impossible. Trystan is destined to return to the mountains and Finora can’t leave the sea. Their only gift to each other is one night of searing passion—which could lead to the greatest betrayal of all…

Heather Long's Goodies

Heather released her short story today!




The short story doesn't feature any Monopoly pieces: no Schnauzer, no Top Hat, no Shoe. But it does feature a mysterious isle called Avalon.





The God-Touched people of Remembering Ashby come from an isle called Avalon. This Avalon is not the same of Arthurian myth, but it is a center for learning, for magic and for religion. The people of the Isle are very different from the Mainlanders, particularly those from The Black Mountains.






In Forget to Remember, her short read, Alexandra Fraser has come of age and the Goddess calls her to service. Alexandra, known affectionately as Xandie, must go against the wishes of her family and her people to journey to the edge of the sea where a boat will take her to the Isle.








From Heather:






This short read is the prelude to the follow-up for Remembering Ashby called The Forgotten. The Forgotten won't be out until next year, but it's next on my project board after Hel's Belle is completed.

The Path To Freedom Promo and Excerpt


Sarah Stevens is a washed- up military cop whose life is a shambles until she is offered a position on an inter-agency anti-terrorism task force by the CIA. The thirty-year-old, overweight, down-on-her-luck Stevens goes to a secret training camp where she is transformed into a sexy and deadly agent whose mission is to find and stop, by any means possible, the financiers of terrorism against the United States and its allies. Although she goes into it thinking that it is just a job, Sarah soon discovers that this is a new life loaded with adventure, including the handsome Vince Hennessee, her team leader, and unimaginable danger in the form of Hassan, the man she has to destroy.

Excerpt:




“Look, this mission isn’t like anything you’ve ever done as a Security Specialist. That was flat out defensive and impersonal stuff. What we’re about to do is strictly covert, offensive and very personal. Although you’ve been trained well in tactics and fighting techniques, there is no training for what you’re about to do. You either can or you can’t.”
Phew! Maybe he doesn’t know?
“Look, Vince, I understand your concerns but a roll in the hay to work over a terrorist is nothing compared to the soldiers giving their lives every day in this war. Besides, I’ve been with bastards before, so what’s one more?”
Working over a jerk is just what I need after all those jerks who have worked me over in one way or another all my life. Hell, it might even be fun.
“Only a strong woman can do what you’re about to, and we need to know now if you can handle it or not.” Sarah stared up into Vince’s eyes and tried to reassure him. “I wouldn’t have come this far if I couldn’t. I can do this, Vince.”
“When you were in the Security Police, it was all black and white. You’re deep in the gray area now and the success of this mission depends on how convincing you can be.”
Sarah fixed her eyes on his. “Vince…I can do it.”
Vince uncrossed his arms and slid his hands into the pockets of his jeans. “We’re all getting our hands dirty in this war. Nobody on this team is going to judge you, but no matter what, at the end of the day, you have to be able to live with yourself. We can’t put you in there and then have you melt down over a moral dilemma.”
How am I going to convince this guy I can handle this? Once I convince him, the rest of the team will be onboard.
There’s only one way…
Sarah smiled a thoughtful smile.
Sarah locked her gaze onto Vince’s and stood. She took a deep breath and exhaled with a soft sigh. “Oh, Vince.” She couldn’t believe the seductive purr of her own voice as she ran her hands slowly over her hips and down the length of her mini-skirt to straighten the creases that had formed from sitting. Still maintaining eye contact, she took two slow steps toward Vince until she stood about six inches away from him.
“Did I ever thank you for the pearls?” She raised her right hand to her neck, gently caressing the pearl choker from left to right.
“They’re so beautiful,” she whispered as she trailed her fingertips slowly down the edge of the v-neck blouse she wore until they rested on her ample cleavage.
His gaze dropped from hers to follow the path of her fingers to her full breasts as she breathed slowly and deeply, but she continued to stare directly at him. With her left hand, she gently touched his right shoulder and trailed her hand seductively down his muscular arm. Liberated by the charade of playing a part, she drank in his scent, the texture of his skin, the form of his muscular arms.
“Mmm…so strong.”
When she reached his hand, she gently placed it on her left hip, holding it there with her left hand. Her body burned for him and she thrilled at his touch.
His gaze dropped to where she had placed his hand, and he took a deep breath before pulling her close and looking into her eyes once again.

Book Trailer for Come Hell or High Water by Michele Bardsley











Book 6 in the Broken Heart, Oklahoma series!






Everybody makes mistakes—and my first one was named Connor, a heart-stealing Scottish hottie. I thought our night together was a beautiful beginning to love, which turned out to be my second mistake. I, Phoebe Allen, lifelong Broken Heart resident and vampire, am now mated to a freaking half-demon.








Connor needs me to retrieve the rest of an ancient talisman, and to stave off his vicious stepmother, an uber demon named Lilith. Thank goodness my four-year-old son, Danny, is off at Disneyworld with his human father. At least my son is safe and far away from all this paranormal drama. Me? Not so much. I’ll help Connor and his rag-tag group of friends because it’s the right thing to do—and not because I’m falling for any of Connor’s demon charm. Still, he’s willing to do anything to protect me and prevent demons from storming into Broken Heart. Dang it. My undead heart can’t resist a bad boy with identity issues…

Graphic Content: Fables TPB Vol. 9: Sons of Empire

Click here to read the latest Blog @ Things From Another World (TFAW) site for a chance to win a gift


We skipped last Friday, since it was a holiday weekend, but we’re back with a vengeance this week for another Graphic Content “book club” meeting. We’re meeting up to discuss Fables trade paperbacks each Friday until we catch up with monthly issues. How can you participate? Join the discussion by posting a comment below, and we’ll send you a special coupon code or gift certificate!

This week’s Fables trade is Fables TPB Vol. 9: Sons of Empire, which deals with the fallout from Bigby’s attack on the Homelands in Fables TPB Vol. 8: Wolves. Fabletown may live to regret rattling The Adversary’s cage–if they’re lucky. The Adversary has not only sent an ambassador to Fabletown–the twisted and maniacal Hansel (yes, that Hansel)–but he’s called his most powerful allies to discuss ways they can kill everyone and everything in the “Mundy” world and use it as a garbage dump. Yeah, it’s pretty scary.

Of course, Pinocchio and Rodney (the wooden soldier who was turned into flesh and sent to spy of Fabletown) are horrified and voice their objections–including the ways Fabletown and the Mundy world can defeat them. Unfortunately, this was just what Geppetto was counting on. Now he’s revised his plans further to deal with this new information, which makes him deadlier than ever.
