New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant “skillfully melds history and legend” (RT Book Reviews) in a brand new series – The Kindred.

 

To live in the light, they hunt in the dark…

 

Unparalleled in beauty and daring, Leoma has been raised with a single-minded focus—to wipe out corrupt witches. But when her new target leads her to a discovery that unveils a graver plan from the Coven, she doesn’t hesitate to follow. Yet, she’s not the only one on the hunt. And the sexy, infuriating man who crosses her path could prove to be a distraction—something she’s never encountered before.

 

Honor and family mean everything to Braith. When his life is turned upside down by the murder of his ward and heir without cause or reason, he has no choice but to turn to vengeance. Until a stunning, dangerous woman continues to thwart his efforts at every turn. Now, he must battle not only his need for revenge but his desire for the female, as well.

Leoma and Braith are strong, bold characters that stand out as true heroes as they go up against a coven of witches.

Re-enter the world of New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant’s spellbinding Kindred series.

 

To live in the light, they hunt in the dark…

 

Strong-willed and cunning, Ravyn was taken in as a child by witch Hunters and raised her to be the best of the best. When she receives word that the witch who murdered her family and ripped apart her world is nearby, Ravyn begins her hunt. In her quest to locate the witch, she finds her pursuit impeded again and again by a gorgeous and powerful man. But she won’t be denied and intends to do whatever is necessary to complete her mission. But the Coven is more dangerous than ever, and Ravyn may not be enough to thwart their latest endeavor.

 

Carac has spent years building his army and winning wars to become known as one of the greatest knights of his time. But he holds a big secret. Everything he’s worked for comes into question when he's faced with a threat he hadn’t known existed. He suddenly finds his mission changed after he’s approached by the most spirited and beautiful woman he’s ever seen. It’s soon apparent that priceless antiquities are only the beginning of what they’re fighting for—and what they stand to lose.

 

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

 

 

The second book in The Kindred series is an exhilarating thrill of a read. Ravyn and Carac stand out as vivid characters with strong wills and a desire to put an end to evil. Their romance is sweet and passionate but the relationship has a few obstacles that must be overcome and secrets have to be revealed which keeps suspense building throughout. Readers can easily understand where the characters are coming from and easily connect to Ravyn and Carac which keeps them glued to the pages.

 

The plot is fast paced and has a kind of adventurous quest feel to the story but it is so much more as it is full of exciting events and adrenaline pumping suspense that keeps readers on the edge of their seats in anticipation of what will happen next. The Coven is after another piece of the first witch and they will stop at nothing to obtain it which puts the hero and heroine it some intense hair raising situations. The author once again created a world, setting and characters that are vibrant and easily imagined which makes it easy for readers to believe they are part of all the excitement that is taking place. This mesmerizing tale holds readers in thrall from the beginning until the very last word and ensures that the readers will come back for more.

The power of Helena’s magic has made her a target for the Coven. She wanted no part in the war of the witches, but it’s out of her hands now. She has to make a stand--and she does that by helping the Hunters and their allies against their common enemy. And now, the witch who ripped Helena’s future apart is coming. Sybbyl’s vengeance is swift and terrible, pitting the two against each other. But Helena doesn’t have to fight the Coven alone. A seductive warlock offers his aid. Helena is hesitant to give her trust to him--because it’s more than her life on the line. It’s her heart, as well.

 

As the most feared and respected warrior of the Varroki, Jarin is used to being on his own. But with the Coven’s quest to find the bones of the First Witch escalating, he finds it increasingly difficult to retain his solitary existence. When Jarin encounters Helena, he is helpless to resist her. She’s everything he didn’t know he wanted and so much more, and with her help, he’s convinced that maybe his people can finally defeat their foe. But there’s so much more at play than they know—ties in blood and sacrifice—and the loss that’s sure to follow may be greater than any of them can bear.

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

 

They had taken out many Coven witches. But not enough. Not nearly enough.


The Coven sought out witches, giving them the option to join their ranks or die. Helena had chosen death when the Hunter appeared in the Witch’s Grove and freed her.


Many, many other witches had also preferred death over joining the Coven. But the vast majority joined the Coven because they didn’t want to die.


While Helena wanted to fight the Coven, she knew she couldn’t do it by herself. And no witch would join her, for they mistrusted as deeply as she did, fearing that it was a ploy by the Coven to get them out of hiding.


That left Helena only two options. Continue on her own.


Or find the Hunters.


She dropped her forehead to her knees. Her eyes closed as she let her memories take her back to happier times. Of a time when life had been simpler, a time when she hadn’t feared anything or anyone.


The jingle of a bridle snapped her head up. She blinked, only vaguely realizing that while she had been deep in her memories, she had fallen asleep. She had no idea how long she slept. It was still light out, but the heavy clouds and thick trees made it difficult to tell where the sun was in the sky.


She leaned back against the trunk of the tree and listened for another sound. For endless moments, there was nothing. Just the silence of a winter wood. She was beginning to think she’d imagined the jangle when she heard a horse blow out a breath.


Cautiously, Helena peered around the tree and saw two men setting up camp about a hundred yards from her. She sighed in frustration and turned away. Now, she’d have to hear them talking all night.


She closed her eyes again and tried to sleep, but despite her eyes hurting from lack of rest, she couldn’t. It wasn’t long before the crackle of a fire reached her. Helena was able to ignore the thought of the warmth right until she smelled something cooking.


Her mouth watered, and her stomach grumbled just thinking about food. The last thing she had eaten was a piece of stale bread she’d stolen the night before. The fact that she could solve her problems with magic but didn’t dare for fear of alerting the Coven made it even more difficult to bear.


The hours stretched by as the sun set and darkness fell over the land like a thick blanket. And the snow continued to fall. The men laughed and talked and ate as if they didn’t have a care in the world.


Helena dozed, but every little sound the men made woke her. She was attempting to find a more comfortable position when a woman’s voice reached her. She stilled, trying to hear the conversation.


When she couldn’t stand it any longer, Helena leaned around the tree to take a look. Her blood went cold when she saw the yellow-orange magic moving from the witch’s palm towards the men.


One lay unmoving, but the other was handing over all his possessions while gazing at the witch as if she were an angel come down from Heaven.


There was no way Helena could sit there and allow the witch to get away with such behavior. It didn’t matter if the woman was part of the Coven or not. Just because she had magic did not mean she could use it in such a fashion.


Helena rose and walked around the tree. As she did, she felt the rush of her magic run through her body. Her strides were long, her gaze locked on the witch.


As soon as Helena was close enough, she let the purple coils of her magic fly from one palm. Before they could strike, the witch leaned out of the way. The woman forgot the men as she shifted her attention to Helena.


“Do you have any idea who I am?” the witch demanded.


Helena lowered the hood of her cloak. “Not a whit.”


“I’m part of the Coven. You will bow before me. Now.”


There was a smile on Helena’s face as she said, “Make me.”


The witch peeled back her lips. The yellow-orange magic flew straight at Helena. With a wave of her hand, Helena blocked one blast, but the other slashed her across her upper left arm.


Helena ignored the pain as she lunged over one of the men and sent more coils of power toward the witch. And, once more, they were evaded.


When Helena was struck once again with the magic, she clenched her teeth and focused everything she had on the witch. This time, when her blast went for the woman, it sank into the witch’s skin. She began to thrash and scream as she was burned from the inside out.


The witch turned to ash before she hit the ground. Helena then faced the men to find both of them watching her with fear in their eyes. She grabbed what remained of their meal and stalked off.

Release Blitz + Excerpt: Glimmer by Ashley Munoz

 

GLIMMER

 

AUTHOR: ASHLEY MUNOZ

 

RELEASE DATE: SEPTEMBER 14, 2018

GENRE: CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE/MC ROMANCE

COVER DESIGNER: DEE GARCIA

Ramsey 

 

I had one goal: get through this stupid year. That's all my mother had left to live, and I wasn't spending it anywhere else but by her side. 

 

Then I met him. 

 

Single father, alleged MC member, and the worlds best mini pizza maker. 

 

I was playing with fire, and I should have known better than to assume I wouldn't get burned. My goals, future, none of it mattered once his demons came to collect. 

 

Jimmy

 

She’s a storm that came in quick, consuming everything in her path. I was a fool to think I wouldn't drown. She's too good for me. Sophisticated sass in high heels, crunches numbers for a living and wears braids in her hair.

 

I want her. 

 

But I shouldn't. I'm not good for her, not after what happened. They say that even the darkness has radiance hidden somewhere within it. Just this once, I hope that’s true because I need her to be my light. My hope. My glimmer. 

Bright rays of sunshine danced across my closed eyelids. It was nice, warm, inviting. It was the kind of sunshine you'd feel closer to midday, not early morning. I cracked my eyes open and scanned the room; indeed, the white light coming in was not from the early morning sun. Shit, it had to be late. I fumbled for my phone to check the time.

"12:30? That can’t be right," I wondered out loud while looking around my room. The “Are you still watching?” screen was still displayed on the TV from my Netflix binge the night before, and the big pile of clothes on the floor that I kept promising myself I’d go through was all lit up with the afternoon glow. Wow, I had really slept in past noon. I made a sound that came out like a scoff, or a disappointed laugh and laid back down. Screw this day and everyone in it. 

I was pulling one of my large pillows over my face when I realized that my mother should have woken me up. Panic surged through me. She’d never let me sleep in this late. Cancer or not, she would always come into my room and start ‘cleaning’ if I slept past 9:30. I jumped up from the ball of blankets that I was tangled under and made my way into the hallway. I began charging towards the other side of the house, where my mom slept.

“Mom?!” I yelled through the house, hoping to hear her tender voice soothe my worry. I hated this; it felt like I just woke up in the Twilight Zone.

Shit, what if something happened? What if I could have helped her? My throat was starting to close as I thought about what could have happened to her or why she hadn't woken me, and why I’d overslept, to begin with. I winced as I remembered last night's disaster. I couldn't sleep. I tried, trust me. It wasn't like I wanted that pathetic mess running like a bad TV marathon in my head. 

I was desperate to settle my mind, so I turned on The Office and drowned my sorrows in the hilarious life of Michael Scott while I ate dry Captain Crunch from the box. Sleep must have claimed me at some point because I was just now waking up and it was already noon. Freaking noon! I never had in my life slept in this long, not even after a game. The panic and concern for why my mother didn't wake me surged back with full force and filtered into every hard-footed stomp I made towards the living room. 

"Mom?" There was still no answer, but then I heard my mother giggle. I knew it was her because she did a little snort at the end. Then I heard a male laugh, not a giggle, but a deep tenor laugh, husky if you will. It made my arms erupt with goose bumps, like my body was warning me to get the hell out of there. I slowed my pace and started creeping down the hall while moving my head carefully around the corner until I could see. 

The only problem was, once I was able to see, I realized too late that whoever the laughing stranger was would be able to see me as well. My mom was looking at me like I was a deranged lunatic, and my brain slowed down, and heart stopped as I took in the other face. Jimmy the Jerk couldn't actually be sitting in my living room. Except that he was. Jimmy stopped talking to my mother and slowly stood, his blue jeans straightened, and his dark green shirt pulled tight against his chest with the movement. That color shirt matches his eyes. Shit, I shouldn’t notice that. All those tattoos were hidden by the blue zip-up sweatshirt he wore. Jimmy the Fist. I thought of what I heard last night at the bar and wondered how accurate the rumors about him were. My eyes lingered on the barely visible black scrawl that climbed up his neck. I wonder what it says? I hated that I noticed that damn tattoo again, or how he looked. I hated even more that I liked how he looked. 

My mother cleared her throat while staring daggers at me. Her eyes squinted, and her lips thinned into a line. I followed her angry gaze and realized it was zoned in on my chest. I knew that look; it was the same look she gave me growing up when I wanted to wear ripped jeans to church or a spaghetti-strapped tank. I quickly looked down at what had offended her and saw that I was wearing a neon green tank top with the letters 'STD' printed on the front. A hilarious college joke from the student tech department, which at the moment wasn't funny, and I suppose neither was the fact that I had charged down the hallway in boy shorts underwear. 

I instinctively pulled the hem of my tank down to cover my legs, but it caused the scoop neck of the tank to dip further. My mother's eyes jumped to my face then my boobs. Shit, I wasn't even wearing a bra. This was a nightmare. I glanced at Jimmy the Jerk for a second to see if maybe he was looking away or doing anything to help me through this awkward moment, but when I caught his gaze, his green eyes were boring into mine. He was standing with his hands in his pockets, feet spread apart, and his jaw locked in place. I didn’t look away; I wanted to challenge him, see how long he’d watch me. I quirked my brow as his stare roamed down the length of my body. Take it all in buddy; you’ll never see this train wreck again. 

I withheld the urge to pull a Vanna White and move my hand vertically along my half-naked body, as if it were some prize. My mom moved to stand, then approached me slowly. 

“Ramsey, you're finally awake.” 

I gave her a tight-lipped smile while I moved my arms to my chest, I had given up on the hemline. I refused to think about my hair, or face, or how either of them currently looked. My mother gently touched my arm as she looked back towards Jimmy. I noticed that his blond hair was neatly combed to the side, and as much as I didn't want to admit it, he looked good—really good. I studied the way his long hair on top fell across his forehead. I wanted to push it off his face and run my fingers through it. What the hell? I hated him. I needed to remember that I hated this man. But even villains can have great hair.

Speaking of villains, I could feel my face finally catch up to the shame of being seen like this by my new mortal enemy. His stare was still cold, calculated, and frustrating. He wasn't looking away from me or moving to leave. I could only imagine the things he thought of me now. No, I didn't give a shit what he thought of me. I just wanted him gone, both out of my house and out of my life. The anger that was so dominant from the night before started to surface again. 

“What are you doing here?” I seethed, trying so hard to keep my anger in check. I wanted to scream at him, shout, possibly throw something. Whatever it took to get through his stupid, beautiful head that I didn’t want him here. His face paled and he shifted on his feet. He seemed like he was struggling for a response. 

Finally, he managed to get out, “I came here to talk to you. Could we go somewhere, uh, private, like the kitchen or something?” 

I liked that he was nervous and stammering like an idiot. my Mom took that as her cue and yawned, then gently closed the space between us and kissed my cheek. 

“It’s time for my afternoon nap, sweetie.” Then she looked at Jimmy and smiled bigger than I have ever seen her smile. Traitor. “Jimmy, it was nice to meet you. I look forward to seeing you again.” 

He smiled back at her and nodded. “Same here, Ms. Carla, thank you for the iced tea.” 

So, it was possible for him to be nice. Who knew?

Jimmy's gaze cut back at mine, and the smile he gave my mom fell away from his lips. He watched me with a measured reluctance, like he was waiting for me to make my move. I wouldn't give him the satisfaction. My arms were still crossed, and my spine was straight as an arrow. I refused to look weak in front of him. Messy, crazy, and possibly like a hoarder, but not weak. He looked down at the carpet, pulled his hands from his pockets, and placed them on his hips like he was thinking. “Ramsey, look, I'm…” 

I put my hand up to stop him before my brain could even catch up. Fight or flight, I was going to fight. I was already on edge, and since I refused to give him the chance to explain, or the benefit of the doubt, I stopped him from speaking. He would get nothing from me, not even the courtesy of me hearing him out. 

“Jimmy, let me stop you there. I don’t know why you came to my house, why you didn’t take the fact that I was asleep as a cue to not come inside, and to leave me the hell alone. But I don’t want you here, and I don’t want to talk to you, so please leave.” 

He looked shocked, his eyes wide and his lips parted. He had one hand on his hip, and the other out, like he was waiting for a low five or just still frozen from trying to talk. Then he began to rub his jaw. He coughed before he replied, “Look, I know I have been a bit of a jerk, but just give me a chance to explain.” 

My arms grew tight as I pulled them in closer to my chest, like armor. “No thanks, Jimmy, I don’t need to hear you explain. Your actions have spoken louder than any word you could possibly utter today. I won’t go back to Theo’s, and I won’t go back to your bar. As far as I am concerned, our business dealings are done. We can both act like we never met each other, I don’t want to see you again after this. If you see me in the store, go the other way, don’t say hi to me, just leave me alone."

I paused, looking down, and gathered what strength I had left to kick the man out. I had never been this mean or forceful with another human being before, so it all felt like a rush. I lifted my head and stared straight through him as I said, "Please let yourself out.”

Release Tour - Dares, Lies, & Geminis

 

Dares, Lies & Geminis
By: Kat Alexander
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 29th, 2018

 

Synopsis:


Two women, different as night and day.
Tristana likes to keep to herself, devotedly working all day so she doesn’t think about all she is missing in life.

Seraphina, shrouded in mystery, hunts at night, surreptitiously looking for someone good, noble, and honest, while proving to herself they don’t exist.

 

Two men who won’t succumb to failure.
After his brother’s death, Peter spends his days trying to build a life as far away from the accusatory eyes of his hometown.

Nathan has a nightly obsession—Seraphina.

 

The truth that everyone is afraid to whisper.

As Peter starts to chip away at Tristana’s walls, one dare unknowingly releases something he thought he lost long ago.

And as Nathan moves in on Seraphina, one lie breaks apart the foundation of everything he thought he knew.

 

Meet the Geminis.

Excerpt:

 

Prologue


This is a story that bares all. It’s not just about me. It also includes Tristana, Peter, and Nathan. All our lives are entangled in a web of sorrow, deceit, despair, and love. Each strand is woven into a net that trapped all those around us, hurting many, ruining lives. Yet, new friends were made, new families forged.


There is always light in darkness, as there is always darkness where there is light.
I knew Tristana’s story. She did not know mine. Even then, I don’t think I know all of hers. Same could be said for Peter and Nathan. They certainly never knew everything.
This is a story about all the facets that drive human beings: vulnerability, courage, pain, love, hate, despair, family, friends, lovers, an opportunity.


This is a story about survival. About running from the nightmares humans are capable of inflicting on others. About running from the monsters out there who want to harm you, running from the monsters inside that you could become. Running from your past. Living with all the tools ingrained in your DNA. The need to survive, to adapt, to overcome.


This is a story. ~ Seraphina

Crimson Moon: Book 1 of The Dark Woods

 

In the old days, people whispered about the wolf, said he came only at night, and only by the light of the full moon. They locked their doors and huddled close to their fires, safe in the knowledge they could prepare for his coming. The truth is, no one is safe, because the wolf walks in the skin of the man. Always.

Harlow Hayes is a runaway, thief, and failed Southern belle. Forced to grow up fast after what her mama delicately referred to as, ‘the incident,’ she learns the hard way not all strangers are kind, real monsters hide in plain sight, and family can be found in the most unexpected places. Harlow Hayes is about to meet the Wolf.
