ABOUT THE BOOKS

 

 

Their Unexpected Mate
Paranormal Protection Unit Book 1
by April Zyon
Genre: Paranormal Romance


After the devastating loss of her father, Katherine Douglas picks up her entire life and moves to the wilds of Montana. She sets about making a home only to find the unexpected—three larger-than-life men that send her perfectly planned future into a dizzying tailspin.


In the middle of a sting, Treasach “Scythe” Campbell, Quinlan “Mac” McAllister, and Sullivan “Sully” McAllister, Alpha Team for the Paranormal Protection Unit, were more worried about getting out in one piece than what the future might hold. But then in she walked—their mate. Like a punch to the gut, instincts older than time kick in, and the three men know nothing, but the driving need to be with her.


They're not human, not by a long shot, but they will love her with a fierceness no other could. Will she run from what they are and what they are asking her for, or can they convince her to heed the primal call from within?


Note: There is no sexual relationship or touching for titillation between or among siblings.

Blog Tour with New Release Review! A Dragon's Treasure (Shifters of Black Isle #3) Lorelei Moone!

 

 

http://indiesage.com/

 

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

 

A Dragon’s Treasure, A Dragon Shifter Fantasy Romance
by Lorelei Moone
Shifters of Black Isle, #3
Publication Date: November 20, 2018
Genres: Adult, Fantasy, Romance, Shifters, Novella, Standalone

 

 

I’m a warrior. No one will tame me, except…

 

Rhea’s new position as general of Black Isle’s armies brings with it a whole host of challenges. The enemy is at the gates, and he’s furious. Black Isle’s defenses are weaker than she would like, so she sees only one solution: to summon their secret weapon. A creature so untamed and powerful, he has been banished to the depths of the dungeons, only to be let out in the direst of need. To ensure his cooperation, she will need to rely on more than just her combat skills…

 

The harder she makes it, the sweeter my victory when I claim her.

 

Saras has been asleep for generations. When a female voice wakes him from his slumber, he knows there’s only one way to avoid the disaster that led him to be confined to the dungeons in the first place. But she’s unwilling and instead hopes to use his considerable powers in battle against Black Isle’s enemy. But a dragon has needs and ignoring them will only end in tears; or in this case, in flames.

No matter how hard Rhea tries to deny it, the attraction between them is hard to ignore. But with the future of the Black Isles on the line, this is hardly the time for romance. Or is it? That’s the thing about playing with dragon fire; sooner or later you’re going to get burned.

 

*NOTE* Although A DRAGON's TREASURE is book #3 in the Shifters of Black Isle series, this book features a new couple, therefore can be read as a STANDALONE!

 

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

 

 


Thrilling suspense and fascinating characters draw readers into the midst of this exciting story. The characters are strong and vivid which makes them come to life for the reader and the relationship between Rhea and Saras is very passionate although due to the length of the book there’s not a much of it because this book also has a lot of action as well. The story is fast paced and flows smoothly throughout giving readers insight into the characters and has an intense depicting of a major battle which adds suspense and excitement to the story. The story is a great read and the world is quite intriguing and readers will certainly enjoy it but the story could benefit from a bit longer with more details, especially in the relationship building between the hero and heroine. The story can be read as a standalone but the readers would have a better understanding of the character interactions by reading the stories in sequence.

Book Tour & Giveaway with Excerpt, Author Interview & 2 4 Star New Release Reviews! Sanctuary For Mate Books 1 & 2 (Sassy Ever After World) Terri A. Wilson!

 

 

 

 

Forgiveness For My Mate
Sanctuary For My Mate Book 1
by Terri A. Wilson
Genre: Paranormal Romance


Tatum’s perfect, well-planned life crashed one piece at a time. After small mistakes led to bigger ones, she’s ready to give up and walk away from the only dream she ever knew. A trip to a New Mexico retreat sounds like the best way to pull herself together. Then she met Connor, a hot falcon shifter who shows her a whole new world full of possibilities she never imagined. Connor’s falcon claimed her at first glance. Now faced with her inner demons, can she learn to forgive herself and stop the cycle of self-destruction? Will his love be enough to calm the anxiety and fears that prevent her from finding the life she never knew she wanted?

 

 

 

The first book in the Sanctuary for My Mate series is a stirring read that captures reader’s attentions and refuses to let go. Tatum and Connor are two strong characters that easily draw readers to them while providing readers with traits that make them come to life. The romance is sweet and the chemistry between them sizzles with lots of heat but this relationship is not one that will be hurried along as Tatum not only has some emotional issues that she has to overcome but she’s facing a reality that she may not can accept which keeps readers holding their breath with suspense as they await the conclusion. The story is fast paced and has some exciting events throughout to keep readers on their toes. The author has created a fascinating world for her characters one that while supernatural is natural and inspires readers’ imaginations.

EXCERPT 1


Connor shrugged and disappeared behind the corner again and returned empty-handed. “So, what do you do in the outside world?”

 

“I worked.”

 

“You must have worked in the medical field to spend the day with Hank. What were you? A nurse?”

 

“No. For your information, I worked as a doctor in an emergency room.” She crossed her arms and glared at him daring him to make a smart-ass remark.

He held a hand over his heart and bowed at the waist. “Sorry, I didn’t mean to piss you off. I guess that was rather sexist of me to assume you were a nurse.”

 

“It happens all the time,” she said with clenched teeth.

 

“I bet it does. It’s kind of like people had a hard time believing what I did before coming here.”

 

Tatum watched his shoulder flex as he opened the jars of mayonnaise and mustard. She didn’t understand what was drawing her to him, but she could not focus on making a sandwich.

 

“I was a model.”

 

She snickered. “A model? Like an underwear model?” Oh crap. Now the only thing she could picture was him in nothing but underwear.

 

He put down his food and wiped his mouth with a napkin. “Yes, and I modeled for other things too.”

 

“For real?”

 

“Is it that hard to see me as a model?”

 

Is he flirting?

 

“Let me see. Step away and walk toward me like you were on a runway.”

He spit out his drink laughing so hard. “Are you kidding me?”

 

“No.” She crossed her arms and leaned her hip against the counter. “Maybe do a little Magic Mike, just for fun.”

 

“Is that a challenge?” Connor crossed his arms.

 

Tatum nodded.

 

“Challenge accepted.” Connor pulled out his phone, cued up a sultry, techno-beat song, and walked away. He unbuttoned his shirt a little and untucked it from his jeans then ran his fingers through his hair to make it stand up a little more.

Oh, this will be good.

 

Tatum watched as he transformed into a runway model complete with a pouty frown and a come-fuck-me look in his eyes. As much as she resisted not focusing on his hard chest showing through his shirt, her face warmed as her nipples grew hard and tingled. She feigned annoyance but wanted to rip off his clothes.

 

He pumped his pelvis against her pushing her off balance. He squatted down, put his hands behind her knees, and ran them up the sides of her body. When he stared into her eyes, she couldn’t breathe. When he leaned in, her eyes closed with no hesitation, his warm breath on her lips.

 

The song ended, and he stepped back. “So, do you believe me now?”

 

It took Tatum a minute to control the electricity shooting throughout her body.

“Uh, excuse me?” She shook her head. “I didn’t hear what you said.”

 

“Oh, really? Well, do you believe me now?”

 

Embarrassed, she turned away and focused on making her dinner. “I’ve seen better.”

 

He stood next to her and spread mayonnaise on his bread. “Oh, come on. I was hot, and you know it.”

 

“Whatever.” Tatum took a bite from her sandwich.

 

 

 

Harmony For My Mate
Sanctuary for My Mate Book 2

 

How do you choose between two women, when only the love of both will bring you harmony?

 

Cameron was born a falcon shifter, but when his arrogance prompted a total disregard to safety, he was attacked by a bear shifter. Living with two predatory animals who want control makes it hard to find peace. When he meets the new chef, Eliza, his bear recognizes his mate, but his falcon longs for Skylar. When an opportunity presents itself that will make all the three happy, Eliza’s heart fights against her traditional upbringing. Faced with a choice, she retreats into fear and uncertainty. Skylar knows her love is not confined to a predetermined set of societal norms. She has to break through the walls Cameron and Eliza built, but that’s not easy when Cam’s heart is split in two and Eliza refuses to believe she deserves happiness. Can three unique hearts turn their back on tradition and forge a new type of bond in order to bring harmony to their life?

 


The second story is this fascinating new series is kind of cutesy and whimsical but at the same time gritty and thought provoking which compels readers to settle in and read this story from start to finish. Harmony is hard to achieve within a group but it’s really hard to achieve within yourself and this romance explores that concept from all perspectives as these strong, bold characters captures readers’ hearts with all the emotional turmoil that comes from trying to achieve that state. The love triangle that Cameron, Elia and Skylar find themselves has them questioning everything they know and really confusing them which keeps the emotional turbulence at an all-time high which keeps readers in suspense of the all-important happily ever after for this threesome and the unique situation they are trying to untangle. There quite a few exciting surprises and twists to keep readers guessing as the suspense keeps readers on the edge and since the author does a great job of bringing her world and her characters to life, it’s easy for readers to imagine each and every scene.

EXCERPT 2


She pulled away and saw Skylar in a new way. This woman, who was at least ten years her junior, showed more wisdom and compassion than Eliza knew possible.

Something in her eyes tugged at an intense level of passion. High on emotion, she leaned in and kissed Skylar’s full mouth. Skylar’s soft lips parted as she pulled Eliza against her. Years of practiced decorum screamed in Eliza’s head as she cupped Sky’s face with her hands. The contrast between the softness of this woman’s mouth and the strength of Cameron’s elicited an emotion she was unprepared to experience. In a moment of panic, she pulled back and glanced at the floor to hide her embarrassment.

 

“Oh, um, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have done that. I don’t know what came over me.”

She reached for the cookie plate, found a container, and put the cookies away.

 

“Don’t be sorry. I’m not. It was a genuine emotion from you and I’m glad I was here to share it with you.”

 

Eliza tilted her head, confused. “I don’t understand. You and Cameron are together. Right?”

 

“Yes, we are. Sorta.”

 

Eliza stood in front of the lady with an opened, unsure what to say.

Skylar snickered. “I understand your confusion.” She scanned the kitchen. “There’s no alcohol at the retreat, but please tell me you have a stash of something stronger than coffee.”

 

Eliza winked. She went to a planter sitting on her desk, pulled out the silk plant, and produced a bottle of vanilla vodka.

 

Skylar laughed. “You are too much. You hide cookies and sweets all over the place for people to search and find, but vodka sits in almost plain sight on your desk?”

 

Eliza nodded. “And as far as I know, no one’s found it.” She put down two glasses and filled them with the tawny liquid. “I’ve been working on Caleb to change the alcohol situation around here. I mean he’s got his stash of wine and Cameron has his stash of beer. He’s worried it will go against the image he wants for this place. It’s stupid. A good glass of wine enhances a meal.”

 

“Caleb is a little stiff. I have a hard time seeing him and Wednesday together, but they seem happy.”

 

“Yes, they do. Sometimes opposites attract. I don’t know him that much on a personal level, but I get the impression he would be worse without her.”

“I knew him before he met Wednesday. You’re right.” She held up her drink. “To Wednesday.”

 

They clinked glasses and Eliza added, “To Wednesday.”

 

An awkward silence fell between the two ladies. Eliza wanted to say something but had no idea where to start.

 

“You don’t have to be afraid of what happened,” Skylar said.

 

“I don’t know what came over me. I mean, I don’t go around kissing girls. I’m not that kind of person.” She covered her mouth with her hand worried her tone might have offended Skylar.

 

“And just what kind of person kisses women?”

 

“Um, I mean, uh…”

 

Skylar tipped her glass back and set it on the butcher block. “Relax, Eliza. I’m joking with you. It’s okay to say lesbian. It’s not a bad word.”

 

“Is that what you are?”

 

“What?”

 

Eliza’s mouth twitched. “What you said.”

“What did I say?”

 

“You know, what you called yourself.” She furrowed her brow.

“Does that word make you uncomfortable?”

 

“No.” Eliza shifted on her stool.

 

“Then say it.”

 

“Fine. Whatever. Are you a lesbian?”

 

“No.” Skylar added more alcohol to their glasses.

 

“I don’t understand. Did our kiss make you feel uncomfortable?”

 

“No. As much fun as it is to watch you squirm, let me help you out. I’m in love with love. I’m attracted to people based on my need to love and be loved. Some people call me a bisexual, but that label feels too narrow for me. I don’t go out and have sex with any and everyone. When I first became sexual, I was attracted to females.

My family hated it but learned to accept it despite our priest damning me to hell.

Then I met Wyatt’s father. He identified as a homosexual, but our connection grabbed me and wouldn’t let me go. Though we were compatible in bed, it didn’t go beyond that no matter how hard we tried. My parents were elated because they thought they cured me.” She used air quotes emphasizing the word cured. “I understand that love isn’t as simple as we’d all like to believe. Intimacy is the most passionate way to share that love.”

 

“How do you identify?” This subject was new to Eliza and though it challenged some of her learned ideas, she respected her friend.

 

“If I had to label myself, I’m what you might consider a pansexual, but even that term is debated everywhere. So, I don’t label myself. It’s not something I need to do to feel better.”

 

“Are you attracted to Cameron?”

 

Skylar finished her drink and poured another one. “Very much so, but you already knew that, didn’t you?”

 

Eliza nodded.

 

“So, are you?”

 

Eliza nodded again. “It makes little sense to me.”

 

“What doesn’t make sense?”

 

“Well, for one thing, he’s way younger than me. And for another thing, I don’t want to come between the two of you.”

 

“Eliza, age is just a number. And you can’t come between us if you are a part of us.”

 

Eliza poured herself another drink. “Bonding was never an important consideration in my family, but I’ve learned enough to know it’s between two people.”

 

“That’s what I’ve always thought too. But I’m just as drawn to you as I am to Cameron.”

 

Eliza blushed and batted her eyes. “You are?”

 

“You’re cute when you play coy,” Skylar teased. “Love and sex are different. I don’t think any of us are ready to commit to love, but it might be worth exploring.” She held up her glass for a toast.

 

Eliza didn’t understand the power of love, but something pulled her to these two. She met Skylar’s glass. Maybe it was worth exploring.

INTERVIEW WITH TERRI A. WILSON


What is something unique/quirky about you?

 

I like to eat my food in even servings. Like for instance, I would rather eat two cookies instead of one and I get twitchy if you serve me three. I also constantly rearrange my eggs in the carton to keep it balanced and I hate when there is an odd number of eggs.

 

 

Tell us something really interesting that's happened to you!

 

In 2009, I had my second daughter at home. My first delivery wasn’t bad, but my experience at the hospital was less than desired. The second delivery went so well, I would have another one in an NY Minute. I made a lousy pregnant woman. I didn’t really like being pregnant, but the actual delivery was awesome and I’d do it again.

 

 

 

What are some of your pet peeves?

 

I really hate people who are inflexible and refuse to see another point of view. I also can’t stand to be scared.

 

 

 

Where were you born/grew up at?

 

I was born in San Antonio Texas, but I spent most of my life in California. I’ve lived in North Carolina since 2006.

 

 

If you knew you'd die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?

 

Holding my husband’s hand.

 

 

 

Who is your hero and why?

 

Buffy from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She’s just flippin’ awesome.

 

 

 

What kind of world ruler would you be?

 

Not a very good one because I get bored easily, I hate dealing with conflict, and I expect people to do the right thing.

 

 

 

What are you passionate about these days?

 

Writing, coffee, and chocolate

 

 

 

What do you do to unwind and relax?

 

I love my bed. My room is dark and we try to keep it cold. For me, I love to just lie in my bed with the lights out. I don’t really sleep, but it’s quiet and I can think.

 

 

 

How to find time to write as a parent?

 

I have my laptop opened all the time and I use multiple devices that sync together.

 

 

 

Describe yourself in 5 words or less!

 

Sarcastic, Loyal, Foul-mouthed, Creative, Clever

 

 

 

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

 

I still don’t because it hasn’t sunk into my head yet. When I see my name on a book, I have a hard time connecting that it’s my name.

 

 

 

Do you have a favorite movie?

 

Yes, many. Practical Magic and Steele Magnolias being at the top.

 

 

 

Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?

 

When I write, the story plays out in my head like a movie. So I guess all of them.

 

 

 

What literary pilgrimages have you gone on?

 

I went to Pompola, Spain for the running of the bulls and to visit the bar where Hemingway spent a lot of his time.


As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?

 

Dragon because it’s fierce and beautiful at the same time.

 

 

 

What inspired you to write this book?

 

It may sound cliché, but there are a lot of characters who live in my head and they fight for dominance. Whoever wins the round when I start a new story gets their story told and then I just let them tell it.

 

 

 

What can we expect from you in the future?

 

I want to explore combining historical fiction with paranormal stories.

 

 

 

How did you come up with the concept and characters for the book?

 

They speak to me.

 

 

 

Where did you come up with the names in the story?

 

Top 100 Baby Names and the Coke bottles that come out in the summer.

 

 

 

What did you enjoy most about writing this book?

 

Researching

 

 


Tell us about your main characters- what makes them tick?

 

Skylar is the most confident person I know. Eliza needs acceptance and can cook. Cameron has to accept he’s different and that’s okay.

 

 

 

Who designed your book covers?

 

B Creative Designs

 

 

 

If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?

 

I’d like to see it a little longer.

 

 

 

Did you learn anything during the writing of your recent book?

 

Yes. I have a hard time focusing for long periods of time.

 

 

 

If your book was made into a film, who would you like to play the lead?

 

Skylar- Margot Robbie (but with dark hair)
Eliza- ???? Sarah Shahi
Cameron- Alex Pettyfer (based on looks only, I’ve never seen him act)

 

 

 

Anything specific you want to tell your readers?

 

When you read Harmony For My Mate or any books from that series, I hope you connect with the characters and they help you examine your own life.
Don’t assume it’s a typical menage story. Be open to examining your accepted ideas of love.

 

 

How did you come up with the name of this book?

 

It’s one of the words I think of when I think about the idea of sanctuary.

 

 

 

What is your favorite part of this book and why?

 

Writing the scenes with Skylar and Eliza because I had to look at love in a new way.

 

 

 

If you could spend time with a character from your book whom would it be? And what would you do during that day?

 

Eliza- she’s a chef

 

 

 

Are your characters based off real people or did they all come entirely from your imagination?


There’s a little bit of me in every female character I write and a little of my husband in every male character I write. Other than that there is no one specific.

 

 

 

Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reigns of the story?

 

Characters

Book Tour with Giveaway, Excerpt & Review! Finding Luna (Pride #1) Becca Fanning!

 

 

Finding Luna
Pride Book 1
by Becca Fanning
Genre: RH Paranormal Romance

 


What happens when three Lion Shifters have to share one Mate?

 

Maryellen was born into a life, if given the chance, she would gladly give away. Though she is probably one of the wealthiest people in the country, Maryellen has never wanted her wealth. Nor her family who is constantly trying to find ways to steal her wealth from her. After being the sole heir to her grandfather’s fortune, everyone has been out to get her ever since. After countless kidnapping attempts and always being afraid to fall asleep, El is finally taking the step to date someone and perhaps find true love.

 

But when she meets Ryan on a blind date, her world changes forever. She is plunged into the world of the paranormal as Ryan reveals his true identity; that he is the leader of the local Pride of Lions. And more than that is the fact that Ryan knows El is her mate. And to make matters more complicated, Ryan is part of a Triad of brothers. Meaning, El has three mates. As El tries to comprehend this crazy new life she is a part of, she can’t deny how right this all feels. She now has the protection of shifters and three men who will love her and keep her safe.

 

But, even after accepting her new life, she can’t let go of the past. She will have to find the truth behind why she is always targeted and come to understand that it’s not just for her money. She will have to make tough decisions, but at least now she knows she will never be alone again.

 

USA Today Bestselling Author Becca Fanning brings you a compelling and steamy Reverse Harem Shifter Romance!

 

 

 

The first book in this reverse harem paranormal romance serial easily draws readers in with strong, vibrant characters and an intriguing concept. The romance is sweet but definitely hot and stirring while promising to get even hotter as the story continues but the relationship is has a couple of obstacles that stands in its way…like finding out the man you are dating is not human and he wants her to mate with not only him but two others. There is lots of emotional upheaval in this story not only from the romance but also from vulnerabilities and El’s family issues that has readers wanting to grab her and give a great big hug even while they are wishing they could have those hot sexy lions for their very own.

 

The suspense builds throughout the story as El struggles to accept everything but there is also quite a bit of excitement in the story as several twists spice things up even more. There is also some adrenaline pumping action as El is targeted for kidnapping and her men try to discover who is behind it and why. The author has created a fascinating and sexy new world that easily catches the readers interest and holds them captive throughout although since it is a serial romance the story does end on a major cliffhanger. While this story is has some red hot passionate scenes, it’s not all about the intimate scenes as it has a fast paced plot full of suspense and easily keeps readers turning the pages until they have read every last word.

Most people hate first dates.


The truth was, Maryellen Forsythe-Drew, or El to her friends, hated them too. But on this particular occasion, she had a gut feeling.


And that gut feeling was telling her that this date was going to be epic.


Sure, it wasn’t the first time the gut feeling had made an appearance, and had, ultimately, let her down. Like the time she’d been certain she’d be allowed more leeway with her campaigns on one of her charities when instead the head of project development had come on to her.


Filing for sexual harassment, and inadvertently getting the flexibility she’d wanted as a result, wasn’t how she figured gut feelings should work, but…


“Wow, way to blow your good mood, El,” she grumbled under her breath as she took a seat at the swanky restaurant where she’d arranged to meet with her blind date.


He wasn’t late. El was just insanely early. The need to get here, to get the ball rolling as it were, had been driving her since they’d made the damn arrangements on Thursday.


The anticipation of waiting for Saturday had practically killed her. But she’d already had arrangements with her parents on Friday night, and though she’d have loved to have skipped that particular session in torture, the misery from breaking that date wasn’t worth it.


Even for a date that had more potential than any other she’d had this year.


She blew out a breath as the server appeared. It was a woman, and praying for female solidarity instead of sisterly bitchiness, she asked, “Do I look flustered?”


The woman, a young blonde barely out of high school, blinked at her. “Ma’am?”


“I’m about to have a first date,” El explained, her stomach rumbling with more nerves. “I was just hoping I don’t look as bright pink as I feel.”


The server, Diana from her badge, smiled at her. “No, you don’t look pink. You look quite cute.”


El blinked. “Really?”


“Yeah.” Diana grinned. “I bat for your team, so you can trust me when I say that.”


El’s mouth dropped open. Feeling more flustered now, her hands rose and fell several times on her lap before they settled on digging into her upper thighs. “Oh my God, I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to impose.”


Could she have messed that up more royally?


Diana snorted. “Don’t be silly. I only mentioned it so you’d know when I say cute, I mean it. I can tell, you’re very nervous though.”


“I am,” El confessed, and it felt weird to have a confessor who was at least ten years younger than her, but damn, she’d take anything she could get. “I met him on that new dating site, Pride in Love. My friends dared me to go on it and I thought it was just stupid, but then I met Ryan, and…” She blew out a long breath.


“He’s like the whole package, you know?”


Diana’s smile was warm. “I’m glad. So why if he’s the ‘whole package’ are you nervous? You should be excited!”


“Because I’m a dork, and I don’t want to screw things up,” El admitted. “I’m already here forty minutes early…”


Diana blinked in surprise. “Wow! That’s definitely early. Can I get you something to drink or eat to settle your nerves?”

“I don’t normally drink,” El confessed again. “But on this occasion, I’ll have a white wine spritzer. Maybe that will calm me down. I really don’t want to mess this up.”


“Well, you look beautiful, and you’re nice and friendly, El. I don’t see why you should be any different when Ryan comes by.”


Something about Diana’s words before she bustled off had El sitting up straighter. The server was right.


She was a nice woman. Easy to talk to, friendly and caring. On the outside, she wasn’t bad to look at. Her friends said she was beautiful but El knew they were just being kind—if she dropped thirty pounds, she’d be beautiful.


As El’s mom often said, “You have such a pretty face, darling.” That wonderful compliment often came when El arrived at the family home, dressed formally as her mother required, and always feeling wanting in comparison to her stick thin sisters-in-law—a feeling her mother encouraged.


El shrugged off the thought because if she had her parents on her mind she’d never charm Ryan.


Even thinking about her family was enough to subdue her, and El knew that wasn’t the woman Ryan had come to know.


Within the anonymity of the dating site, she’d allowed her natural vivacity to flow free when they’d chatted, and she wanted Ryan to meet that side of her. The uninhibited woman who could and would appear when she wasn’t being cowed by her mommy and daddy.

 

Irritation flared, and she embraced it. Embraced the heat because it burned that inner core of cold that she’d created over the years as a defense mechanism.

Spying Diana coming with her drink, El took a look around the restaurant and smiled. It was a fancy place, that was for sure.


Bright white, it should have been cold, but huge golden orbs were suspended from the ceiling in different heights, creating a wave of sorts. The orbs were like miniature moons. All of them in assorted sizes.


They swirled about the room, even appearing on the floor; in corners or over on the dancefloor in the center of the restaurant, which was bordered by the bright orbs.


Tables were sectioned off for privacy with low frosted glass partitions, but the bright cerulean blue tablecloths were a spark of color in the otherwise white restaurant. Even the waitstaff wore all white.


She looked at the doorway where the maître d’ stood. The woman was tall, close to six feet, and she was the only staff member that El could see who wore color—the same bright blue as the tablecloths. Her white starched blouse was tucked into high waist trousers, and the result was a tailored dream.


El wished like hell she had the figure to pull off something so simple, but she was way too round for that.


A pear when she needed to be a ruler.


Feeling Diana’s approach, she was about to turn when she saw Ryan—immediately recognizing him from his pictures online. He didn’t come from the front door, but from a back room behind the maître d’. He stopped to talk to the woman, smiled at her as he bent over the stand, and studied the plans she kept on there.


Just as El was wondering whether Ryan managed the restaurant or something, he kissed the maître d’s cheek.


Bile tried and failed to gurgle around her insides, but jealousy did. It hadn’t been a sexual kiss, El tried to reason with herself.
Still, seeing it hurt.


The thought had her stiffening in her seat because she didn’t own the damn man.


It had been a kiss on the cheek, not an all-out make out session in the doorway. Friends kissed friends, right? It could be perfectly natural. Innocent, she thought frantically.


Before the tension from her date kissing another woman could flood her, Diana appeared and popped her drink down in front of her. The server must have seen where she was looking because she half-turned and saw Ryan.


El frowned at Diana’s reaction—the other woman dropped her tray to her side and declared, “You’re the Ryan?”


El flushed. “Excuse me?” Mortification succeeded in turning her bright pink. What the hell was going on?


Ryan approached the table, and now he was nearer, and not kissing cheeks with beautiful members of staff, she had to admit he was better looking in person.


God, talk about a total understatement. Better looking? That was like saying he was handsome.


Ryan was…


Well, handsome wasn’t the word.


He was a god.


That was it.


No other way of describing him.


Taller than the maître d’, she knew from his profile he was six-seven. But he wore it well. He wasn’t thin and lean, but lithe and strong. His muscles were evident through his brutally tailored navy suit. It clung in all the right places and displayed a soupcon of a white silk shirt that lay flat against abs so delineated, she could see them through the fabric. He wore no tie, but he had a little pocket handkerchief… the lack of one and the presence of the other equalizing the semi-formal look.


His hair was a blond any woman would have killed for. So many shades of gold, her own hands longed to touch the silky locks. He was tanned and bronze, and his eyes were a bright blue that seemed to scan the situation with ease.


He had a strong Roman nose, a wide brow, lips made for kissing, and a jaw so hulking she knew from looks alone how stubborn he was.


All in all, she felt totally underdressed and overwhelmed.


Who was this god and why had he elected to date her?


She gulped when he shot her a smile that made her melt. Just like that.
Jesus.


His nostrils flared a second, but before she could freak out over whether he could smell her arousal—who could do that? No one, she desperately reassured herself—he turned to Diana and wrapped an arm around her.
Wow, this guy was tactile.

Book Description:

 

San Francisco nightclub owner Carina Tranquilli works hard, plays hard, and never allows the death of her parents and her twelve-year memory gap to get her down. But her life takes a left turn when a witch attacks her on her twenty-fifth birthday.

 

Three hauntingly familiar vampires emerge to reveal she possesses a latent power. To protect her from their enemies, they admit to wiping her memories clean and abandoning her as a child, but now they need her help. As she struggles to evade her new protectors and even newer enemies, she meets Alexander, an enigmatic, undead musician. Insta-lust flares, leaving her wanting more.

 

With evil’s minions hounding her every move, and everything she thought she knew turned on its head, Carina must harness her burgeoning power, unravel her vampire family’s web of deceit, and fight to have a love life...without getting killed in the process.

 

 

Everything Carina thought she knew has been turned on its head and she must harness her burgeoning power, unravel her vampire family’s web of deceit, and fight to have a love life while evil’s minions hound her every move in this thrilling urban fantasy read with some fascinating and unique vampire elements. The characters are strong, captivating and they easily draw readers into their story, all while projecting such strong personalities that readers almost feel as if these characters are about to leap off the pages, especially the heroine of the story, Carina. She has a bit of a spunky, live life large attitude despite some troubling setbacks in her past and in the romance department she pretty much likes it to keep it friends with benefits until she meets Alexander and then the romance part of this story heat up quickly with lots of electrifying chemistry that sizzles throughout the pages between these two. The relationship however meant to be it is, still has quite a few obstacles to overcome, especially with all of the other turmoil that has descended upon Carina’s life.

 

The story is steady to fast paced and full of thrills and excitement as the suspense builds throughout the story with lots of twists and turns, especially since the ‘family’ only gives a little info at a time and holds back lots of it. There is plenty of action and readers never have a chance to become bored although readers may feel that there are a couple of things that could be plotted better, they can’t help but become completely caught up in Carina’s exciting life and while readers will see the bad guys again, this first major battle between Carina and the bad guys is quite spectacular.

Carina and Alexander’s First Date

 

… My hands roamed from his chest to his biceps. Smooth and solid, no hint of flab. Want you to wrap them around my body while you take me from behind. My little fantasy expelled the air from my lungs in a loud rush. Energy pulsed from my hands, hot and bubbly. His muscles twitched in response.

 

“Adrian was amused I’d followed a girl into the club.” His hands curved around my waist. “Until he realized it was you. He told me who you were, but he wasn’t happy about it.”

 

“What did you do then?” My voice wavered, his touch devastating, distracting.

His grip tightened. “I left.”

 

“Why?”

 

“The law according to Thomas. Your club is off-limits to all non-humans, except on Sundays. You yourself are off-limits to all vampires every day. Or you were then, anyway.”

 

I frowned. “You’re saying my uncle forbade you to see me?” This was so Romeo and Juliet. I didn’t like it. That story never ended well.

 

A hand slid to my back, pressing possessively. “Yes.”

 

I rolled my eyes. Thomas, interfering in my life. Again. “How long did you obey?”

 

His eyes narrowed. “Too long. But I sensed your presence after that whenever you were nearby. You spend a lot of time in my neighborhood after dark.”

 

“Adrian said the exact thing to me.” I bit my lip. Oops, now he knew I was talking about him. I felt myself blush like a crushing teenager.

 

He grinned at my discomfort. “You were hard to avoid. So I stopped trying. I showed up at the museum though I knew Thomas would intercept me. But it was worth it, to have you finally see me. I had to know.”

 

Talk time was over. We stared. And stared. And stared some more.

 

His smoky blue eyes bled to black and his power pushed at me, hot and hard, causing a response inside me, like a rumbling volcano deep in my core. My eyes widened. Was this the power my family had mentioned? No longer dormant and infinitely more intense than a little static electricity in my palms.

 

Alexander crushed his lips to mine. Need roared through me leaving me breathless with edgy hunger.

 

My hands burrowed into his thick, silky hair, holding his head as if he might try to escape. He growled his approval against my lips, his kiss growing more insistent. His tongue explored my mouth. He tasted metallic, like the blood he’d consumed.

Again, I found I liked the taste. My tongue danced with his and delved into his mouth, searching for more penny metal flavor. He groaned and tightened his embrace.

 

I thought we’d devour each other forever, but Alexander stiffened and his head snapped up. His eyes glinted black as night, wild with lust and...aggression? He bared his teeth in a snarl, canines morphing into fangs. Long, sharp, lethal.

 

On instinct, I pushed against his chest to get some distance between those teeth and my neck. He ignored me, head whipping around to survey the room. A feral growl erupted from his throat and he shoved me under the table.

 

My cries of protest were drowned out by animalistic roars and breaking furniture. From my spot under the table, I felt around on the bench for my coat, all the while keeping an eye on the room. Dark blurs flitted back and forth, pieces of table and chair flew by...Bingo. My coat. I searched the pocket for my phone. Once in hand, I hit the button for my boys.

 

The fighting around me stopped. The familiar techno ring tone of Mark’s phone broke the sudden silence. He’s here?

 

The table above me was tossed away. Steel hands grabbed my legs and dragged me, face down. I dropped the phone and flattened my palms on the floor, trying to resist. One hand bumped into a steak knife and I grabbed it. My assailant flipped me over and lunged. I aimed for his heart but the knife plunged into his throat. …

 

 


Celia’s Bewitching Halloween Tale


I grew up listening to my Irish grandmother’s stories about the Fae, including her encounter with a Banshee in her family’s cellar when she was a teenager. Of her many stories, this is my favorite, and I love to share it every Halloween. Enjoy!

 

 

Bumped by the Banshee
by Celia Breslin

 

… I lived in a large two-story house with my parents, younger sister, and grandmother. It was a cold, winter evening, nothing special or out of the ordinary.

My family dined together, then my sister and I cleaned up while our parents and grandmother drank tea. We joined them at the dining table to do our homework, but my grandmother said she was tired and went upstairs to bed. My parents followed shortly after that, but my father paused on the landing.

 

“Maeve, it’s going to be a cold night. Fetch us some coal, please.”

 

I abandoned my homework, grabbed the empty coal bucket from the kitchen, and went down into the cellar. I filled my bucket and returned to the stairs. I had one foot on the first step when the temperature in the cellar, already cold, dropped dramatically. Chills ran down my back. Behind me, someone moaned.

 

But how could that be? I was alone...

 

Terror rooted me to the spot. The keening grew louder. I dropped my bucket and covered my ears. A cold wind bumped against my back. I stumbled forward as the shrieking wind rushed over me and up the stairs.

 

But how could that be? The cellar had no windows...

 

Above me, the cellar door slammed shut. The sound broke me from my stupor. I screamed and ran up the stairs and out of the cellar, through the kitchen and dining room, and up the stairs to my room. My parents and sister found me under my bed, shaking like a puppy lost in a snowstorm.

 

“What is it? What’s wrong?” They asked me, while pulling me from my hiding place.

 

“I heard the Banshee wail.”

 

We stared at each other in silence, all of us reaching the same conclusion moments later. We hurried to my grandmother’s room.

 

She was dead.
