I’m still going to lose her forever.

Excerpt
          
          Amar is studying me. His hand moves, taking my own carefully like he’s afraid I’ll pull away. And I freeze. The look in his eyes… it’s like I’m all he sees. Me, now. Me, then, back in that restroom, alone in the moments before Ruby walked in. But there’s no pity in his gaze. Just something else, dark and deep.

          Safety.

          I can’t breathe. My thoughts are trying to catch up to my impressions, struggling to put words to a man so unfathomable it should be funny. I don’t know what he wants, though. To kiss me? To have sex? Somewhere inside, I’m still ready for that, but that part of me feels like it’s drowning in the nightmare of this evening, the exhaustion of all the hours since, and the rawness of what I’ve just said.

          He lifts his other hand, taking my cheek, and his thumb strays across my lips, parting them while his eyes track the motion. My heart slams into my ribs. Even the simple contact makes my insides start to burn. Maybe I’m drowning in all this madness.

          Maybe I just need something good to hang onto.

About the Author


Skye Malone is a fantasy and paranormal romance author, which means she spends most of her time not-quite-convinced that the magical things she imagines couldn’t actually exist.
A Midwestern girl who migrated to the Pacific Northwest, she hopes someday to travel the world — though in the meantime she’ll take any story that whisks her off to a place where the fantastic lives inside the everyday. She loves strong and passionate characters, complex villains, and satisfying endings that stay with you long after the book is closed. An inveterate writer, she can’t go a day without getting her hands on a keyboard, and can usually be found typing away while she listens to all the adventures unfolding in her head.
Skye also writes YA urban fantasy as Megan Joel Peterson and is the author of The Children and the Blood trilogy.

{Cover Reveal} Hollywood Demon - By Jenny Schwartz






===============


Hollywood Demon - By Jenny Schwartz
(The Collegium, #6)
Release Date: 8/27/2016
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal, Romance




Feel the Earth move! 
A camera can’t steal your soul—but a demon can! Mark Yarren suspects a demon has found a way around the spell his great-grandfather cast to prevent demons sucking souls through the camera’s lens. Digital photography dangerously omits the silver wash that was photography’s century-old defence against Hell. 
Mark is Hollywood royalty, descended from the early Hollywood stars: the studio bosses and directors, the producers and actresses. Now he lives alone in his palatial Beverly Hills estate. 
Well, not quite alone. 
Clancy Ramirez is back! She’s tried life in New York, in Iceland, and in Hawaii, but she missed California. She missed the grumbling roar of the San Andreas Fault with its leagues-deep molten geology. Clancy is a geomage and she can make the earth shake—or grow still. But California isn’t her territory. She has no place intruding or tapping its energy. 
But a demon shackled for a century is breaking free, and Collegium rules, old heartaches and strained family loyalties will break, too. 
The Big One is coming.

{Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway} Blood & Magic Series - By Danielle Annett

Release Date: 1/25/2015 


Purchase Info: Amazon ~ B&N  


It has been six years since the Awakening and peace in Spokane, Washington is still tenuous at best. The vampires and shifters are all vying for control of the city and the humans seem to be the ones suffering the consequences, or so it seems.


Aria Naveed has spent the last two years of her life fighting to make the many wrongs of the world right, but soon finds out that the humans aren’t as weak as they appear and may be a more terrifying foe than any of the other races combined.


When a stranger rolls into town with trouble on his heels, Aria finds herself trapped in the middle of a battle that could cost her more than she has bargained for as a fight for justice turns into an unexpected fight for her life.

Release Date: 9/13/2015


Purchase Info: Amazon ~ B&N


As Friend of the Pack, Aria Naveed should be untouchable, protected by the most influential group in the Pacific Northwest. But someone is unleashing rogue vampires to hunt her down, and she is determined to find out why.


When Aria gains command of Sanborn Place and takes on a case involving a mysterious paranormal, her life is put in more peril than ever as she finds herself bound to an influential power player. She doesn’t want to be anyone’s puppet, but must tread carefully as she traverses the streets of Spokane, WA, or risk being overwhelmed by the forces moving against her.

As the only known pyrokinetic in the area, Aria is in high demand, but not for her services. It seems that to those in power, she’s worth more dead than alive, and if a mysterious enemy has their way, she won’t live long enough to find out why.





Every aspect of this book screamed action, adventure, mystery and paranormal goodness!



I feel like my mind is on mental spew mode because all I want to do is give up the plots, secrets, and tell you who ends up being the biggest @$$hole in the series thus far....but I won't! All these goodies will stay within the covers of these books until you go and pick them up yourself.


Over the course of reading the 1st & 2nd book in Danielle's, Blood & Magic series, I was able to introduce my literary self to some super sweet characters & dynamics. Initially when meeting the heroine, Aria, she's in the process of solving a young boys murder, she's being led towards vampires as the culprits....but something doesn't feel right. As the plot thickens it evident there is more to Aria's theory than even she'd like to admit.

One of the things that kind of made me go...."Ehhh"....was how quickly the first book wrapped up. I didn't care for the rush, and it would be a put-off-ish for someone who doesn't have the 2nd book handy like I did.

==

But, like I said I had the 2nd book handy, and thank goodness for that!

Still in a bad situation Aria needs to find an out, and find one fast. Being told what you're going to do isn't high on the "Like List" for Aria, so now that her future is being told to her she will do anything to make that decision on her own. 

One of the things that I truly enjoyed about this book was the all the emotion, and character development. It seemed that each character grew more within specific chapters of this book, then they had in the entire 1st book, and that right there shows author development. 

Overall I enjoyed this series as a whole, I really expect a lot from Danielle in book #3 though. Not only in her characters, but in her worlds. Let's bust the roof off this paranormal bisch!

{Cover Reveal} Girl of Glass - By Megan O'Russell




===========


Girl of Glass - By Megan O'Russell
Publisher: Fiery Seas Publishing
Release Date: 12/6/2016
Genre: Young Adult





Two worlds...one glass wall...no turning back.

The human race has been divided. The chosen few live in the safety of the domes, watching through their glass walls as those left on the outside suffer and die. But desperation has brought invention, and new drugs have given the outsiders the strength to roam the poisoned night unafraid – but it comes at a price.
Seventeen-year-old Nola Kent has spent her life in the domes, being trained to protect her little piece of the world that has been chosen to survive. The mission of the domes is to preserve the human race, not to help the sick and starving. But when outsider Kieran Wynne begs for Nola’s help in saving an innocent life, she is drawn into a world of darkness and danger. The suffering on the other side of the glass is beyond anything Nola had imagined, and turning her back on the outside world to return to the safety of the domes may be more than she can stand. Even when her home is threatened by the very people Nola wants to help.

EXCERPT



Hanging from the crooked branch of a maple tree wasn’t that glamorous—not what my people would expect from an honoured Massacre survivor. Legs swinging to try and get a foothold, strands of hair clinging to my face, I heaved myself onto the next branch.

This would have been easier if I’d had the use of both hands.


Out of breath and halfway up, I paused, deciding how best to continue. The tree had forked and my legs were splayed, one foot against each trunk. In my fist, the owlet gave a feeble hoot.


I glared at him. He could hardly be called cute, with his sparse white fluff and oversized feet.
“Your family reunion better be worth all of this,” I said.


I pushed off one trunk and wrapped my limbs around the other, then shimmied higher until I was level with the nest.


Two owlets peered back at me, identical to the one in my fist.


“Gaawhist,” I said. Home, sweet home.


I placed my rescue next to his siblings, where he toppled sideways and blinked a few times. I poked him to make sure I hadn’t squeezed him too tightly. He ruffled himself and settled in.
Maybe I couldn’t help everyone survive, but I could, at least, save this one life.


I just hoped the mother would return soon.


I leaned against the trunk and caught my breath, my thoughts turning back to what I’d come here for. I inhaled slowly, letting the sweet scent of maple buds calm me.


From this height, the wooden, mossy cabin below seemed less imposing. I could see how these grounds might have once been used for camping—back when seaside camping was not a life-threatening activity. Now, this cabin was one of many classrooms at the Safe Training Base. Once a place to connect with wilderness, now a place to learn the best way to slaughter a sea demon.

{Release Blitz + Giveaway} Pennies - By Pepepr Winters




==========




Pennies - By Pepper Winters
(Dollar #1)
Release Date: 7/20/2016
Genres: New Adult, Romance

“At 18 I had pennies, but money didn’t make me bold. At 19 I had dollars, but it didn’t dull the pain of being sold. At 20 I had hundreds, but then I met him and was found. At 21 I had thousands, but all I wanted was to be bound.” 
“At 23 I had dollars, but life changed and made me rich. At 25 I had hundreds, but it wasn’t enough to stop my killing itch. At 27 I had thousands, but my reputation didn’t set me free. At 29 I had millions, but I met her and could finally see.”
Tasmin was killed on her 18th birthday.  
She had everything planned out.  
A psychology degree, a mother who pushed her to greatness, and a future anyone would die for. But then her murderer saved her life, only to sell her into a totally different existence. 
Elder went from penniless to stinking rich with one twist of fate. His lifetime of crime and shadows of thievery are behind him but no matter the power he now wields, it’s not enough. He has an agenda to fulfil and he won’t stop until it’s complete. 
But then they meet. 
A beaten slave and a richly dressed thief. Money is what guided their separate fates. Money is what brought them together. And money is ultimately what destroys them. 
She was poor. 
He was rich. 
Together…they were bankrupt.

WORD OF WARNING

Pennies (Dollars #1) is a DARK ROMANCE. This means there will be hard to read scenes, graphic language, and sexual content (both implied and explicitly written). Please do not read if falling in love with a man who dresses in monster robes rather than knightly armour offends you. This is not a fairy-tale. This is a black abyss that must be climbed blind before deserving the light. Along with literary darkness, this is book one of a five book series. Each subsequent novel will be released every few months (so your fingernails don’t tire holding onto the cliff-hanger), and each is full-length. Please also remember not all answers are given and not every character is as they seem. There are beasts adorned in angel clothing and angels hiding in beast’s fur.


Remember that.


You have been warned.


Don’t say you weren’t told.


Read at your own peril.


Fall in love with Elder Prest at your own risk.


Are you ready?


You sure?


You really, really sure?


Okay then…enter the world of pennies and dollars.




==========

EXCERPT



FREEDOM.


Such a modest word.


It carried very little importance for those who had it. But for those who didn’t, it was the most precious, prized, and promised hope of all.


I supposed I was lucky to know what freedom felt like.


For eighteen years, I’d been free. Free to learn what I wanted, befriend who I liked, and flirt with boys who passed my rigorous criteria.


I was a simple girl with ideals and dreams, encouraged by society to believe nothing could hurt me, that I should strive for an excellent career, and no one could stop me. Rules would keep me safe, police would keep the monsters away, and I could remain innocent and naïve to the darkness of the world.


Freedom.


I had it.


But then, I lost it.


Murdered, resuscitated, and sold.


I lost my freedom for so many years.


Until the day he entered my cage.


Him, with the black eyes and blacker soul.


The man who challenged my owner.


And set my imprisonment on an entirely different path.
