Marrying the Wrong Earl by Callie Hutton (Tour) ~ Giveaway/Excerpt

 

Clarendon’s dark blond curly hair hung a bit more over the back of his cravat than was fashionable, but it suited him well. It appeared his valet had attempted to tame the curls but a few stubborn locks had sprung free and brushed his broad forehead. An aristocratic nose and full lips left no doubt he was descended from generations of nobility. His crystal blue eyes bore into her as he released her hand when they joined the line. They stood across from each other as the music began. He bowed, she curtsied, and they came together. She would be the bigger of them, and clear the air. “I do wish to apologize for the trouble I caused you today, my lord.”

 

They switched places. “’Tis nothing, I assure you.” He extended his hand, and they moved together with the other dancers for a few steps.

 

“I disagree, my lord. You ended up muddy, with your clothes torn.”

 

His jaw flexed as they moved around each other and joined the line of dancers again. “Of course, you disagree, but I assure you, my lady, ’twas nothing.”

 

As they weaved in and out of the other dancers, she mumbled, “What do you mean ‘of course I disagree,’ and why cannot you accept an apology freely given? Are you always so disagreeable, then?”

 

They joined hands once more. “Perhaps because I do not wish to be reminded of the incident.”

 

Separating, they moved around each other, dipping with the music. “I believe you are merely being stubborn.”

 

Nash closed his eyes. “And I believe you are being stubborn.”

 

“I am not being stubborn. I simply want to extend my apologies for the mishap this afternoon.”

 

They joined hands again and moved in a circle. “Fine. Your apology is accepted.”

 

Another couple switched places with them, eyeing them with curiosity. “There, now. Was that so very hard?”

 

“My dear lady, do you wish to dance, or converse?”

 

They stepped forward, hand-in-hand to the head of the line. “Can we not do both?”

 

“Perhaps I lose count if I talk and dance.”

 

Her eyebrows rose and she offered a tight grin. “Cannot do two things at once, my lord? Is that why you had such a difficult time rescuing a poor cat?”

 

Nash came to an abrupt halt, causing the couple behind them to stumble. “I did not have a difficult time of it.” He bent close to her ear and murmured. “Furthermore, I am finished with this conversation.”

ARC Review/Guest Post: Traci Douglass (Blood Vowed) ~ Giveaway/Excerpt
Blood Vowed (Blood Ravagers Book 3) - Traci Douglass

 

My Five Favorite Vampires and Five Reasons to Life Mate a Vampire 

 

Thanks so much for having me on your blog to talk about one of my favorite Otherworld creatures—Vampires! My hero in Blood Vowed, Rev, is a vamp and my fascination with these undead hotties began in high school when I read Anne Rice’s classic Interview With A Vampire. For months afterward, my friends and I were obsessed with Louis and Lestat and dreamed of finding a sexy bloodsucker of our very own. Alas, the only place I’ve found them thus far are in the pages of books or on film. And while it’s hard to pick just five, here are my top picks of the vampire variety:

 

  • Gary Oldman’s Dracula (Bram Stoker’s Dracula, 1992) – those hypnotic eyes, that sexy stare, and such style. Yum!

  • Louis du Pointe du Lac (The Vampire Chronicles, Anne Rice, 1976-present) – so broken and brooding and beautiful.

  • Eric Northman (True Blood, HBO, 2008-2014) – ruthless, powerful, devoted to those he cares for, and man does he look F.I.N.E. in the buff!

  • Miriam and John Blaylock (The Hunger, 1983)—David Bowie and Catherine Deneuve as gorgeous undead creatures. Look at these two! What’s not to love?

  • Damon Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries, CW, 2009-2017) – I have a fondness for gorgeous dark-haired men with blue eyes and major attitudes, so this gorgeous vamp is right up my alley.

And let’s see, five reasons to life mate a vampire?

 

  • Eternal beauty
  • Eternal passion
  • Eternal devotion
  • Eternal fun
  • Eternal companionship

 

Who could ask for anything more!

 

 

BLOOD VOWED by Traci Douglass is a dark and sexy ride with an otherworld ex-assassin on a mission to atone for the sins of his past, and the woman who holds both his only means of escape and the keys to his ultimate salvation. This exciting installment in the Blood Ravagers series is perfect for fans of BLACK DAGGER BROTHERHOOD by J.R. Ward and IMMORTALS AFTER DARK by Kresley Cole.

 

Title: Blood Vowed

 

Author: Traci Douglass

 

Series: Blood Ravagers

 

Genre: Paranormal Romance

 

Release Date: April 13, 2017

 

Publisher: Tule Publishing

 

Synopsis:

 

Reverend “Rev” Walker, expected some backlash after he foiled The Council’s attempts to overthrow the Blood Ravager Biker Gang. What he hadn’t expected was to wake up in the last place he ever wanted to see again—a dank cell of The Council’s Siberian dungeon. Drained and chained, he faces certain death if he can’t escape from the hellish prison. Now, his only means of escape depends on him accepting help from a fellow prisoner, a woman whose very existence is a lie and the only one capable of awakening Rev’s long-dormant heart.

 

Claire Deveraux is Dygarian, a race of shadow-shifters who have been slandered and hunted to extinction by The Council. But Claire has used her years of enslavement well, reading her captors’ secret texts and hearing their whispered secrets. Now, after being locked up for a crime she didn’t commit, she plans to use her knowledge of the dungeon’s maze-like interior to gain her freedom, or die trying. Then a new prisoner arrives, a man Claire has dreamed of and knows in her heart is her destined mate, if only she can break through his walls.

 

On the run and threatened from all sides, will Rev and Claire learn to trust each other and their growing feelings for one another before it’s too late?

Blood Vowed is book three in the Blood Ravagers series by Traci Douglass. It’s an adventure that’s full of suspense.

 

 

Rev has been in hiding from the Council for centuries. He has come a long away from being the Council’s Assassin. He wants to destroyed the Council and save and protect his friends in the Blood Ravagers gang. He was not looking, nor did he expect, especially with his sins, to find his true mate. Clair has been imprisoned with the Council her whole life. She is also a Dygarian, the last of her kind. All she wants is vengeance against the Council and the one who helped them destroy her people.

 

We finally get to see the elusive and evil Council. These three men have been using their powers not to uphold the supernatural world, but to control it and subjugate the supernaturals. Those that don’t get on their side soon learn the consequences.

 

Blood Vowed moved fast from the first to the last page. Rev and Clair have nice chemistry and their banter was enjoyable. There were secrets and pasts to overcome.

 

Just a few issues:

 

- The battle scene was lackluster. I was expecting more. Especially since we have been building up to this confrontation.

 

 

- I felt that one of the scenes, where the Council members parish, was taken from “The Darkest Seduction by Gena Showalter.” It was so close in similarities to when Krones dies in The Darkest Seduction.

 

- I found it odd that one of the Council members can just pull Clair anytime anywhere back to the Council headquarters. It didn’t make since this part; because she would permanently be trapped. Yet she escapes and they don’t pull her back until she has time with Rev. Then they keep pulling her back each time she escapes. My issue is if they can do this, then why did they wait the first time? It just felt silly and not thought out.

 

Blood Vowed was an enjoyable read. We get to finally meet the evil Council, change the future, and find love.

 

Rated: 3 Stars

Peering around Rev, Claire studied the new opponent. The thing was big and ugly and must’ve come running from the deepest crevices of the dungeons.  It launched itself at Rev, saliva dripping from its huge sword-like fangs as if it wanted to gobble the vamp up for dinner. 

 

This wasn’t her first run-in with the Council’s monsters who went bump in the night. There were others, many, many others that lurked in the shadows down here. In the past she’d always had a contingent of guards surrounding her when she’d come to clean, then later, she’d had the iron bars of her cage. Now, though, there was nothing between her and what looked like certain death. Nothing but a vamp she didn’t know and didn’t particularly trust, who was currently getting the thrashing of his immortal life from the looks of it. 

 

The need for self-preservation swelling inside her, Claire mentally reviewed the texts she’d read about hand-to-hand combat while she searched for a weapon. At last, she settled on a sharp shard of wood from one of the vicious roots that had died and assumed a battle stance. 

 

Time for a little payback. 

 

As she crouched and prepared to strike, Rev dodged from one side of the narrow passage to the other, slicing the tip of his makeshift rock dagger across the beast’s throat…only to disappear. Vampires were notoriously fast and Rev even more so due to his training.

 

Still, the creature remained on its feet, healing quickly and growing angrier. 

 

Rev reappeared in a flash and struck again and again, inflicting more damage each time. The creature tried to claw him, but Rev always seemed to duck at the perfect moment. Much as Claire hated to admit it, his masterful skill was impressive. He never seemed to make actual deadly contact with the monster or land a punch though. Why? She wasn’t sure, since the opportunities were there. 

 

Then the idea occurred that perhaps the whispered rumors of the other prisoners were true. Perhaps he had left his killer ways behind and now searched for redemption by turning only against the people who had made him what he was. That would certainly make sense, given what he’d told her about why he was here, why he’d sacrificed himself and his freedom.

 

Claire clutched her wooden stake tighter. No. Even if that were true and he had changed his ways, it would not alter his fate. She had nothing to her name now, nothing but her integrity and her vengeance. She would use him to keep her safe until she could fend for herself and then she would end him as she’d promised. 

 

The beast swiped a razor-sharp talon at Rev, nearly beheading him if not for his quick reflexes, and this time Claire jumped into the action. The assassin was hers to kill. No one else’s. “You have five seconds, creature,” she shouted. “I suggest you run. Fast.” 

 

At the sound of her voice, the monster narrowed its black gaze, growling, “Mine.” 

 

“Three seconds left.” 

 

Rev dove through the air and gouged out one of the beast’s eyes. Yelps of pain echoed. 

 

Retaliating, the creature slammed hard into Rev’s chest. Rev tumbled backward through the dark tunnel, disappearing into the shadows beyond. 

 

Slowly, Claire turned back to face the beast that had just signed its death warrant. “Zero.”

Interview: Jennifer Siddoway (Dealing with the Devil) ~ Giveaway/Excerpt

 

Hello & Welcome!

 

Today I’m happy to introduce Jennifer Siddoway author of Dealing with the Devil. Jennifer, Thank you for visiting Angel’s Guilty Pleasures and speaking with me today.

 

What have you written?

 

I have written the first and second books in the Earthwalker Trilogy. Book one, Dealing with the Devil, is available in paperback and as an e-book. The second book in the series, The Devil’s Due, should come out Late May or early June of this year. I’m thoroughly enjoying writing about these characters and love where Wynn’s journey is taking me. Once I have completed her trilogy, I would love to write about her mother and how she got involved with this demon to begin with.

 

Which character in what book are you most similar to and why?

 

I definitely relate to Wynn quite closely, especially since we’re both strong willed, fiery red heads that grew up in the south. I think we have a lot in common and I particularly enjoy her brand of snark.

 

I think it’s almost impossible not to put a little of yourself into the characters you write. Obviously, I’m not a demon like the character in my book, but Wynn absolutely displays some of my personality quirks – the good and the bad. Every now and then I find myself giving her habits or personality quirks that I display myself and laugh it off a bit.

 

On one hand, she is funny, brave, and fiercely devoted to her family. On the other, she has some anger management issues, a fiery temper, and is also kind of a jerk at times. That’s understandable because she is, in fact, a demon and it gives her personality depth. No one is without flaw.

 

Most of the time when we read about teenage girls, we must ask ourselves if they are vicious or vulnerable—I suggest that they’re both. There is something deliciously satisfying about co-existing in that dual relationship and while I don’t strive to be like Wynn, her shortcomings are human nature.

 

For your own reading, do you prefer e-books or traditional paper/hard back books?

 

That is a difficult one to answer! I love the feel and texture of having a book in my hand, but lately I’ve found more and more that I’m reading things on my kindle. As fun as it is to hold a paperback, they take up a lot of space after a while and can be extremely heavy.

 

What is your favorite color, food, and TV show?

 

My favorite color is bright teal or turquoise. There’s something about the electric blue that I just love ESPECIALLY when its couples with purple or black. Unfortunately, I don’t get to wear it very often because it looks terrible with my complexion, but I try to use it anywhere else I can.

 

My favorite foods include anything with gooey melty cheese. I’m not much one for chocolate, but melted cheese is my Achilles heel. Also, bacon. Give me all the bacon and we won’t have any problems. LOL.

 

The TV shows I’m watching right now are usually lighthearted and funny, such as Community, Parks and Rec, or How I Met Your Mother. I don’t really enjoy or get into political dramas, especially considering the current state of affairs, I just want to laugh and be entertained.

 

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

 

I’ve always loved Fairy Tales and enjoy a good re-telling of an established plotline. It’s especially fun if there’s a dramatic shift, or unexpected role reversal. I started toying with the idea of Rumpelstiltskin and started thinking, “What if something went wrong?”

 

I didn’t want to do an actual re-telling, so I twisted things around a bit and tried to picture how that would play out from the point of view from the child who got wished away. The whole concept of selling your unborn child to the devil is such a terrible thing to digest you have to wonder what kind of a person would do that. Around the same time, I was pregnant with my first child and a well-meaning, older person in church put her hand on my stomach and said, “You only get to work hand in hand with God to create life a handful of times in life, so enjoy it while you can.”

 

I knew what she meant was intended to be sweet and reassuring, but I just felt this chill run down my spine. “What if I wasn’t? What if it wasn’t God that I was creating life with?”

 

I walked away and my arms were covered with goosebumps and after that the story just wrote itself.

 

What was the hardest thing about writing Dealing with the Devil?

 

Editing, hands down. I made the rookie mistake of trying to edit my own work and that just made me miserable. I’ve since learned my lesson and decided to leave that to professionals because I never know when to stop and leave it alone. If left to my own devices the story would never be finished, I would be continually going back and adding scenes here and there and tweaking dialogue. It important to know when to stop.

 

What is your favorite scene from Dealing with the Devil? 

 

I think my favorite scene from Dealing with the Devil is when Wynn wakes up from waving this hallucinatory fever and realizes she’s transformed into a demon. She’s been living in denial of what’s happening to her up till this point, but now faced with the reality of her situation, realizes that she doesn’t know how to conceal it without being trained in how to use magic.

 

I rolled up the sleeve of my shirt to expose the irritated patch of skin, or more appropriately, lack thereof. On the inner side of my forearm was a large section of flesh that had sloughed away to reveal a pattern of black and reddish scales. My hair was still the fiery, red that it had always been, but instead of curling gracefully down my back it looked as though it had been set ablaze with heatless flames. I still maintained a woman’s

 

figure, but my skin was covered in hard back scales and a pair of enormous, leathery wings sprung outward from my back.

 

As I stared at my reflection in the mirror and tried to formulate a statement in my mind, the words would just not come. “I’m…”

 

“Beautiful,” Aidan finished for me. “You’re a demon, Wynn. That human illusion was just a shell to conceal your true identity. Now that your demon half has been activated, your body’s begun rejecting it and your true, magnificent form has finally broken free. May I just say what a pleasure it is to be seeing you at last.”

 

“I’m a monster…” I muttered dismally.

 

He rolled his eyes dismissively and sat up in his seat. “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, love. I’m telling you, you’re no such thing.”

 

If you could have given your characters any piece of advice before the opening pages of their book, what would it be and why?

 

Oh man, If I could give Wynn advice it would be to sign up for some anger management issues! Take a yoga class, learn about meditation, something. She’s extremely emotional and needs to learn the art of Zen. I’d also tell her to believe in herself and trust her instincts a little more.

 

If you could spend the day with one of the characters in Dealing with the Devil, who would it be and what would you guys do?"

 

If I could spend one day with any of my characters, it would probably be Aidan. He is sexy, funny and just the right amount of dangerous. Because he’s the Lord of Pride he’s incredibly well dressed and has charisma oozing out his eyeballs, I absolutely adored writing him and can’t wait to see where this story takes me. What would we do? … I’ve always wanted to go dancing with the devil.

 

Jennifer, it was a pleasure having you visit. Thank you for taking the time to chat with me today!

Maverick’s gaze narrowed. “Don’t ask a question you don’t want the answer to.”

 

Alexa swallowed and licked her lips. “What if I do want it? The answer,” she added.

 

Years of need and longing roared through Maverick like a drug he’d mainlined. His thoughts spilled out unfiltered.

 

“Damnit, Al. You’re laying there in my clothes in my house with your thighs spread after I’ve just woken up holding you. My skin smells like you. And I’m sporting an erection because of you. Don’t fuck with me.” The words came out harsher than he intended, but she couldn’t play with him. Not on this. Not when he cared so much. Not when he wanted so much.

 

Her mouth dropped open and her chest rose and fell a little quicker. “I’m not playing a game. I want to know.”

 

Planting his hands on his hips, Maverick studied her. Her beautiful, languid body. Her pretty, open face. Her eyes, honest and free of pretense. He felt pulled in a million directions. Between wrong and right, between taking advantage and taking care, between giving in and opening himself up to a world of hurt. “I was dreaming of you. Of us. Up at Swallow Falls.”

 

“That night we—”

 

“Yes,” he growled.

 

“Maverick—”

 

Fuck.” He dropped his chin to his chest and closed his eyes. Trying to be bigger than his base needs. Trying to put her before himself. “Whatever is about to come out of your mouth is not a good idea.”

 

“Mav—”

 

“I mean it, Al—”

 

“Maverick!” she nearly yelled. “Listen to me.”

 

His gaze cut up to hers in time to see her sit up a little and take off her shirt. Well, his shirt. Then she laid back again, her eyes on him, drinking him in, inviting him in. “What if I do want it?” she whispered.

 

Something inside him snapped.

 

He was on her in a second. Body covering hers. Hands going to her warm skin. Mouth tasting her everywhere—her shoulder, her throat, her cheek. His chest pressed against her breasts, her hard nipples evident, her excitement palpable. And then his mouth found hers. On a triumphant groan, he claimed her, his lips sucking, his tongue penetrating. His big hand found her breast and kneaded at the soft mound.

 

And Alexa was right there with him. Moaning, kissing him, clutching on to him. Her thighs wrapped around his hips and her fingers twisted in his hair.

 

Bad idea bad idea such a fucking bad idea.

 

Why did bad ideas have to feel so good?

 

 

Ride Rough (Raven Riders #2, 4/25/17)

 

Maverick Rylan won’t apologize for who he is—the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club Vice-President, a sought-after custom bike builder, and a man dedicated to protecting those he loves. So when he learns that the only woman who has ever held his heart is in trouble, he’ll move heaven and earth to save her.

 

Alexa Harmon thought she had it all—the security of a good job, a beautiful home, and a powerful, charming fiancé who offered the life she never had growing up. But when her dream quickly turns into a nightmare, Alexa realizes she’s fallen for a façade she can’t escape—until sexy, dangerous Maverick offers her a way out.

 

Forced together to keep Alexa safe, their powerful attraction reignites and Maverick determines to do whatever it takes to earn a second chance—one Alexa is tempted to give. But her ex-fiancé isn’t going to let her go without a fight, one that will threaten everything they both hold dear.

Interview: Rebecca Royce (Meeting Them)

 

What do you do when you are not writing?

 

I have three sons–they’re 11, 9 and 7. I take care of them, see that they’re getting their school work done. I clean the house (very exciting, I know.) Have lunch with friends. See movies. Watch television. I travel, as much as I can with three kids. I go to my childrens’ extracurricular activities. I’m a huge foodie. I love great restaurants. I hang out with my husband. I read, a ton. Wow–I am really, really, really dull.

 

How did you choose the genre you write in?

 

It chose me. I just felt compelled to do it. I wish I had a better answer but I fell in love with doing it.

 

If you could have dinner with any three authors (alive or dead, who would you choose and why?

 

Lia Davis, Heather Long, and Ripley Proserpina just because I love them and I’d love to have a dinner.

 

If you could have given your characters one piece of advice before the opening pages of Meeting Them, what would it be and why?

 

Paloma–duck. (You’ll have to read it to get that…)

 

What scene was your favorite to write in Meeting Them? 

 

Tommy is very off put-ish with Paloma at the beginning. And then there is a scene where they finally get each other–I loved writing that.

Paloma Delacroix has suffered greatly for a mistake in her youth. She dreams of a future she wonders if she can ever have. But for all her imagination, Paloma can’t predict what is about to happen. Thomas, Clay, Keith and Quinn McQueen are men with secrets and a past that keeps them on the run. But when life explodes around Paloma, the McQueens will be all that stands between Paloma and death.

 

Her sweet nature and strength make them believe the universe might not be as awful as they’ve come to believe it. But is it too late for all of them? Or can love win the day?

As a teenager, I would hide in my room to read my favorite romance novels when I was supposed to be doing my homework. I hope, these days, that my parents think it was worth it.

 

I am the mother of three adorable boys and I am fortunate to be married to my best friend. I live in Austin Texas where I am determined to eat all the barbecue in town.

 

I am in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and try to use all of these elements in my writing. I’ve been told I’m a little bloodthirsty so I hope that when you read my work you’ll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. I love to write series because I love to see characters develop over time and it always makes me happy to see my favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.

 

In my world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.

 

I’d love to hear from you!

 

Cheers!!
