{Blog Tour: Review} GenTech Series: Winning Glory - By Ann Gimple



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Author: Ann Gimple

Release Date: 4/21/2015 
Purchase Info: Amazon  
After years as a black ops CIA agent, nothing surprises Roy Kincaid, yet his current assignment is close to a bust. How could his target—renegade genetic freaks—drop off the radar as if they never existed? Burnt out and discouraged, he hunches over a meal in a backwater diner when a half-frozen woman with the look of an abused runaway staggers through the door. On his feet in an instant, Roy kicks himself. His first instinct is to help her, make certain she stays long enough for the bluish cast to leave her lips. His second is to finish his meal and leave. The world is full of broken women. It’s not his job to fix them, but he can’t take his eyes off her. 

Glory’s telepathic ability blares a harsh warning. Roy hunts those like her, but damn if he didn’t buy her dinner. Maybe she can fool him, just for tonight. Add a dry motel room to the meal. If she plays it very cool, he’ll never find out she’s on the run from the same group he’s targeted for death.

Enhanced genetics only go so far. A roadblock and her face on a Most Wanted flyer shatter her fragile truce with Roy. If her Handlers find her, they’ll kill her. If Roy finds out what she is, she’ll be worse than dead. 

BAM!

Allow me to help introduce you to an absolutely BRILLIANT new series laced with suspense, heat and mystery!

First meeting Roy was intense, he's guarded, disciplined and delicious. Hunting those who are different for a living can shift something in a man, make them change who they once were. Though Roy has great reasons to do what he does, it's extremely riveting to see his journey throughout this entire novel. Immediately as Glory comes crashing into his world things start to get crazier....if that's possible. 

These two are probably one of my favorite literary couples I've ever had the pleasure of reading about. When you put two strong personalities together they become explosive, now when you add two smoking hot individuals you get the BOOM! Seriously some of the best on page chemistry between leading characters I've ever seen!

Another thing that I truly enjoyed about Winning Glory was the enormous amount of detail that Ms. Gimple layered into this book. Glory's back story was fantastic, it did make me want to throat punch her "handlers", but it gave great insight into why she acts the way she does. Her defenses are keen, but her end game is what matters most to her....she will never go back to that world again!

Now I could go on for DAYS about this book, and dip into the rest of the series, but I feel you should grab this series and find out for you self!

4/5

{Book Blitz + Giveaway} The Siren's Touch - By Amber Belldene


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



The Siren's Touch
by Amber Belldene
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Kensington/Lyrical
Release Date: July 21, 2015






One touch can change everything…


Hitman Dmitri Lisko is determined to avenge his father. Once he takes out the man he believes is responsible for his family’s tragedies, he’s done killing for good. But a mysterious woman may tempt Dmitri to change his plan.


Sonya Truss was murdered in a Ukrainian village in 1968. Now she’s reappeared in San Francisco as a rusalka—the ghost of a wronged woman. And she’s thirsty for the blood of her killer. But she has to make things right before she’s trapped between worlds forever.


Sonya's enigmatic siren powers stir Dmitri's long-buried chivalry, and he finds himself compelled to help her. He also can’t resist giving her a taste of the pleasures she never experienced while she was alive. Soon they discover that touch has surprising consequences. Yet when their shared mission comes to cross-purposes, they must choose between deadly sacrifice—or surrendering to the one act that can save them both.

The teapot jostled like there was a frog inside.



He had to be hallucinating. Holy hell, he’d never been this hungover. Then again, he’d never been on a thirty-day bender either. Quitting cold turkey after a vodka-soaked month was bound to be rough on the system. The teapot was definitely not jittering, only his sanity. Caffeine might help.



He lifted the little round thing by the handle. A gust of steam poured out as deep-brown liquid trickled from its spout into his mug—an antique glass cup wrapped in silver filigree. In his hand, the teapot shook, jostling his arm.



Damn it. That was no hallucination.



A sudden puff of steam collided with his face. He set the teapot down and wiped his moist eyes. When he opened them again, he was certain he’d lost his mind.



Hovering over Elena’s postcard-perfect traditional Ukrainian table setting was a shimmering tea-colored woman. No, not a woman.



He reached for his weapon, knocking his chair to the floor. Scrambling across the room, he got as far as he could get from that...thing.



Back pressed to the wall, his heart drummed against his sternum. What the hell was she?

She dripped brown droplets of smoky Russian Caravan onto the table and gasped for air with her gossamer hands clasped at her neck. Her brown eyes stretched wide in her heart-shaped face.

Had he completely lost his mind? “Fuck.”



The thing yelped, flying away and leaving a sprinkling of tea droplets in her wake. As they fell to the ground, she grew whiter, becoming the soft, shiny color of a perfect pearl.

A ghost. Holy hell.



All his skin rose up in goose bumps. Could you shoot a ghost? Or a hallucination? He was damn sure going to try. He took aim.



She coughed and coughed and coughed some more, making a horrible wet retching sound. Then she darted to a spot near the window, bending her spectral shape over to hack, as if she could clear her throat. Only it didn’t seem to be working.



Without thinking, he lowered his weapon. “Breathe, girl. Be calm.”

Slowly, she straightened, and her chest rose and fell in the rhythm of breath. The sun shone through her translucent form, highlighting a smoking hot set of curves under a long, wet nightgown. Large brown nipples poked through the ghostly, damp fabric, and a dark vee between her legs drew his gaze.



Hell.



This wet dream of a sexy, drowned ghost was proof he’d jumped into the deep end.
