Blurb: 

What would you do if the one fate chose for you vanished into thin air? What would you give up? Who would you become to stay with that person?

Krista Bell finally knows what it’s like to be free. The torture she endured at the hands of her psychotic father have unleashed the monster her mother tried so hard to help her suppress. The only thing she wants to do is be the shadow in the night that everyone is afraid of.

Nathan is on the verge of losing not one but both of his mates. One vanished without a trace. The other is avoiding him. He has run out of patience with them both.

New Release! Phoenix Rising, The Fairy Tale Match Box 3 By Danielle Rose-West.

This seems like a cute book. Check it out.


Book Synopsis:


How can Fairy Godmothers help their charges find love in the modern world when nobody believes in magic anymore? Simple, they run a dating agency!

Rhys Spencer is determined to prevent his rich father from shutting down the charity he set up for kids in gangs, but he needs the money from a trust fund to do it. However, his grandmother has withheld the funds until he proves himself to be a mature, responsible person. To her mind, that means Rhys being in a serious relationship. Rhys turns to the Fairy Tale Match to find a woman he can use as a fake girlfriend. He will do all it takes to claim the money that will thwart his father’s selfish plans. The feisty woman the agency sets him up with, will not stand in his way.

Taylor Shore has more complications in her life than anyone should have to deal with. Guardian to her two half-siblings since their parents’ deaths, she has her hands full with their constant troublemaking. The last thing she needs is to win the prize in a dating agency competition she never entered. Furious to find her friend entered for her, Taylor is determined to send her prize packing. The guy that turns up to stay with her for three weeks, however, has other plans in mind. Refusing to be ordered from her house, the arrogant man offers her a deal she’d be a fool to refuse.

As Rhys inserts himself into Taylor’s problems, he begins to turn her life around. The angry fireworks between them gives way to a passionate love. Just as they find happiness, a vicious lie told by Taylor’s sister breaks them apart. Flo and Lotta have their work cut out for them to bring Rhys and Taylor back together. Time is against them and tragedy lurks on the horizon. 

Can Flo and Lotta save the day, or will Rhys and Taylor lose the precious love they have found forever?

Excerpt:

Her jaw dropped open and she stared at him disbelievingly. “You can’t be serious. You want me to be a fake girlfriend and lie to your grandmother? Why?”

He folded his arms over his chest. “You didn’t want to tell me why you were hanging from a window earlier, and I don’t want to tell you why I need you to do this.” He gazed at her with one eyebrow cocked. “I’ll stay out of your business if you stay out of mine.”

“It’s hardly the same thing!” she protested. “You expect me to lie for you. I should at least know why. It’s a despicable thing to pull the wool over your own grandmother’s eyes. I knew there had to be some reason why you’d joined a dating agency! It’s because of this, whatever this is, isn’t it?” She didn’t even wait for a reply. “Why am I not surprised?”

Her tone told him she expected nothing less from him. Rhys contemplated her reaction. She was unlikely to help him just because he’d saved her from that fall. He needed to sweeten the deal.

“I tell you what, you do this for me and I’ll not only call us even on the favour front, but I’ll pay you five grand if you pull it off. What do you say?”

She gaped at him and shook her head. “I have to have heard you wrong. Did you say you’d pay me five grand to be your fake girlfriend?”

“I did,” he confirmed, “but only if you are convincing enough that my grandmother believes it.”

Taylor stared into space. He could almost see the wheels whirling round in her head. “I’m not sure how comfortable I am with this. Do you guarantee me that this is nothing untoward? I don’t want to find out that I’ve helped you do something illegal or immoral.”

“You wound me with your lack of trust.” He clasped a hand to his chest.

She snorted. “Like I care. Well?”

“I can guarantee you that nobody will be hurt by this, nor are my reasons immoral or illegal.” He held out a hand. “Do we have an agreement?”

“How do I know that you’ll pay me? I could do everything you ask and then you could simply renege on the deal.” She ignored his hand and cast him a challenging glare.

Taylor obviously had severe trust issues. Rhys could relate. “I will pay you half in good faith, now. You will receive the other half when the task is complete. Sound fair?”

Taylor gazed at him for several moments. Her lips twisted to one side and she chewed on the corner of her mouth. Finally, she held out her hand. “Okay, you have a deal. God knows what I’m getting myself into, but I’ll do it.”

Author Bio:

My name is Danielle Rose-West. I live in the United Kingdom with my family and my little dog, who is very much a part of the family. I have always been a dreamer and an incurable romantic with a vivid imagination. When I was a child, I was always reading. If anyone ever went looking for me, they usually found me curled up somewhere with a book! Most times when they spoke to me, I didn’t hear a word they said (my sister never believed me about this, but I honestly never heard her!). I was too wrapped up in the adventures I was reading.

When I was growing up, I wanted to be either an author or a librarian. I never made it as a librarian, but ended up in office work instead. It has taken a long time for me to finally realise my dream to write, but I’m finally here. I now write contemporary romance with a magical or suspenseful twist. I like things that have something a little out of the ordinary about them in both my reading and my writing preferences.

These days I spend most of my time plotting new books and characters as well as enjoying finding out where my characters are going to take me in the story. I don’t always know how everything will develop, sometimes they surprise me. Some of the things that happened in both my books, Wild Fire and Forever You, were unexpected surprises that suddenly hit me while I was writing or quite often when I was awake in the early morning hours. I love it when that happens. The whole book just comes together as if by magic (perhaps Lotta and Flo, my two fairy godmothers, have something to do with it!).

When I’m not writing and plotting, I love to spend time with my husband and family. I love to read, of course, and to watch enjoyable films or TV. I also love walking. It’s great exercise and helps me clear my mind.

My biggest wish is to entertain my readers and leave them with happy hearts at the end of the book and a wistful sigh of romantic bliss. If I achieve that for them, I’m happy!

Two Book Features: A Lost Kitten & A Forgotten Kitten By Jessica Kong

Today I'm featuring author Jessica Kong's sci-fi books. Here's an awesome testimony from Kirkus Reviews:

“A titillating opening to a space-opera romance series…given the number of John’s siblings, the Sea-anan saga has the potential to keep readers entertained for several installments.” —Kirkus Reviews

A Lost Kitten 

Seacat John McCall labels the attack on the Sea-anan Empire as a nightmare. He escapes the enemy’s invasion, only to find himself stranded on a distant planet called Surreal. Tormented by thoughts of his family being massacred or captured by the enemy, he focuses on returning to aid them until he experiences a mind-boggling kiss that can only come from the one he is meant to share his life with. To ease the terror he feels for his family, John seeks the identity of his secret admirer. He quickly learns the true meaning of nightmare when he discovers his soul mate is of “the mist.”

Jasira Eversole is drawn to the powerfully built outlander sitting at the king’s table. Unable to resist the need to see him again, she enters the warrior’s room while he sleeps. John’s rugged good looks and chiseled body compel Jasira to reach out and touch him. Being of the mist, Jasira knows she will not be able to feel John, but she cannot resist his pull. The richness of John’s hair, the firmness of his muscles, and the clean scent of his skin all take Jasira off guard. She swiftly realizes John is her intended mate. Now, Jasira must somehow convince the young warrior that they are two halves of one soul without chasing him off Surreal, leaving her to a lonely existence as mist.

A Forgotten Kitten 


Many readers enjoy Star Wars-esque stories of conflict on faraway planets, while other readers tend to stick to epic romances. Few authors have managed to combine the two genres in such a seamless way as Jessica A. Kong has in her Sea-anan Saga. She has created a highly complex story with fully developed characters, and the themes explored here are inarguably adult, yet the reading level required is no more than eighth grade. A Forgotten Kitten zips along at just the right pace, allowing the reader to digest the complexity of the plot and interrelation between the characters without having to think too hard. The story revolves around Sev, a young, handsome prince and member of a royal family who rises to become king of the Oceanan race. Sev is raised in the midst of a vicious family feud, but all seems worth it when his adoptive aunt gives birth to a beautiful little girl whom Sev falls instantly and irrevocably in love with. But when Sev’s planet collides with its own sun and collapses, he must bear the loss of his entire family, including his love as well as any memory of her. Areo, the heroine of the story, is that little girl that Sev fell for during his childhood. She is a human-feline hybrid who has grown to hate the royal family that her soul mate hails from. She undergoes a destructive event and space travel episode similar to Sev’s, and it is not too long before she has settled her new planet and with her fellow half-bloods, created a strong, thriving society. When she is brutally attacked by Daehog, everyone in her empire is scattered throughout the universe. Where does she land but the planet that Sev is currently occupying. What follows is a continually building conflict interlaced with one of the most fervently passionate love stories seen in these kinds of novels. Kong chooses not just to write about space travel, or war, or love, or family, or even racism; instead, she chooses to combine all of these classic literary themes into one amazing story. The result is a mysterious and ultimately deeply satisfying story that only leads to the craving for more from this gifted and astoundingly creative writer. Reading should always be enjoyable, especially when reading escapist literature, and Kong has remembered this and accomplished it without sacrificing plot or characterization. The task of any science fiction writer is to take alien, unbelievable concepts and present them in a way that convinces the reader they are plausible in reality, and Kong has certainly hit the mark with her second novel in this delightfully mystifying series.

Author Bio: 


My writing career began with the publication of the first two books in the Sea-anan Saga, A Lost Kitten and A Forgotten Kitten. The themes and story lines of my books are based on my real-life experience in an interracial marriage. I also incorporate experiences my triplets went through growing up, like being treated as outsiders by kids who weren’t minorities or multiracial, or, now that they’re older, being labeled or avoided. My books have a message about not judging others before you get to know them. Also, by making the differences between races more exaggerated, I emphasize how, when you look past the tiny factor of race, we all share the same basic needs, desires, and cultures.

Book Review-Pursuing Korah (Intoxicating Passion #4) by Felicia Tatum


The Intoxicating Passion books are a series of novelettes. The last one was Daring Dane. If you’ve been following my reviews, you know how much I enjoyed it. Pursuing Korah did not disappoint. In fact, Felicia is a devious, little imp because she left me hanging, and now I can’t wait to read what happens next.

*shakes fists at Felicia*

In this next installment, Korah has the misfortune of running into her ex-boyfriend Christopher. He’s been stalking her and is a low life piece of shit. He attacks her, but thank god Dane swoops in and saves her. He beats Christopher senseless. The cops arrive and soon after Dane is facing assault charges from this human piece of garbage.

Meanwhile, Dane never leaves Korah’s side, proving to her he’s worth her time and possibly her heart. But as each day goes by, confusion takes root inside him, sprouting questions he cannot answer.

Is he in love with her?

Why does she consume his thoughts?

Why does she have the starring role in his dreams?

Korah is equally perplexed regarding her feelings for Dane. She’s going through a lot right now, dealing with Christopher’s abuse towards her and not wanting to live her life in fear. Her best friend Leela is helping her through this. When she takes Korah to a much needed shopping trip, Leela gets a disturbing message from Dane’s best friend Cale, whom by-the-way is sweet on Leela. At least I think so, and she is equally smitten by him. The message has to do with Dane. He’s in trouble. The girls cancel their retail therapy plans and rushes to Dane’s aid.


This was another wonderful piece to the Intoxicating Passion’s series. Felicia did a great job. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I’m looking forward to reading the next one.   

Blurb:

Dane confesses his feelings and his intentions, but to his dismay, Korah isn’t buying it. He regrets letting her kick him out after the trauma she endures hours later.

Korah wants Dane more than anything, but can’t trust him with her heart. After another brutal run in with her ex, she ends up finding the comfort she seeks from a very distraught Dane.

Can the two learn to trust in order to be together? Will Dane’s angry reaction to her trauma warm or harden her heart?

Book Feature-The Net by Missy Leigh

I'm all about helping other authors out because I know how difficult it is to market and get the word out about your book. I'm in the same boat as they are, and I believe in paying it forward. 

The book I'm featuring is erotica. People who have read the ARC (advanced reader's copy) really liked the story. 

Heed the following warning please. 


RELEASE DATE 3/15/14

*WARNING!*

Rated M for Mature

Due to strong language and sexual content, this material is not suitable for readers under 18+

M/F, F/F, M/F/F, Bondage   

Divorced, unemployed and on the verge of bankruptcy, Megan Matthews is desperate for quick cash. When a friend suggests the world of video sex chat, Megan is forced to decide. Can she trade gracious, country club conversations for raunchy innuendos and vulgar requests?

When you've spent your entire life playing by the rules, breaking them can be sinfully delicious.

Teasers #1

"I didn't want to be responsible for stealing your innocence."

"You can't steal something I willingly give."

"I know that now, but more than anything, I wanted to shield you from me, from the industry, from worldly corruption. You're everything I'll never be, Megan."

"But you're everything I want to be," she whispered. Scooting closer, she wrapped her fingers in his hair. "You're generous, kind hearted, loving, and honest. You're gentle yet aggressive, bold yet secretive. I didn't tell you how I felt about you because I didn't think I was your type."

"You're too good for me."

"And you for me."

His heart cartwheeled. If this wasn't love, then it didn't exist.

Teaser #2 

Adult entertainers bring pleasure to a world of unsatisfied people. Consensual, adult sex—whether it's visual or physical—is a basic and essential need. Some might condemn me for thinking so, but screw 'em. I've spent my entire life worried about 'them', but not anymore.





Teaser #3


She sensed movement and knew he'd knelt down in front of her. Was it possible to survive without air? It had to be. Her lungs were failing and yet she was very much alive.

Cover Reveal! Haunted by Her Dragon by Julia Mills

Haunted by her Dragon - cover reveal banner





Dragon_FINAL_03012014_WEB


Blurb:


Life has never been easy for Dr. Samantha Malone especially since the day all those years ago that her only family were taken in a car accident. Now at almost twenty-nine years of age, with only one year of residency left, she is faced with putting her life back together once again after being kidnapped and left for dead. Had it not been for six feet two inches of walking muscle in ripped jeans and worn cowboy boots with crystal blue eyes and a cheeky grin that made her wonder what he was up to, she might never have seen the light of day. All these months later she knows he is protecting her from the shadows, never far but never seen. Why? What does he know that she does not?

There are no coincidences.

He protects her from afar, making sure the ones that dared to hurt her do not come back while he waits for the time when he can claim her as his own. Fear is not something the fierce Dragon Guardsman is used to feeling but it is something he has become accustomed to over the last seven months. Fear that he will not catch the traitor and his cohorts before they hurt those he cares most deeply for. Fear that he will not be able to protect the one the Universe made especially for him. Fear that he is not what Samantha needs but then…

The Universe does not make mistakes.

Lance has spent his long life cracking jokes and making fun of his brethren as each succumbed to the sappiness of everlasting love with the one that completes them like no other. Now the Universe is the one laughing and his fellow Guardsmen are the ones badgering him with the jokes as the mating call and his dragon push him headlong towards the one that will bring light to his soul in this life and the next. He can no longer deny that he is meant to spend the rest of his many years with Sam but his obligation to eliminate any threats to her life must come first…right? For the Guardsman who has hot-dogged his way through one hundred and twelve years, one brown-eyed curly-headed doctor will make him rethink everything he ever knew.

Fate will not be denied.

Blame Shifting, The Poison Of Humanity

Everyone is guilty of shifting blame on others. I don’t care who you are. I think it’s innate within us.

Why?

I don’t know.

Blame shifting in our society is way out of hand, and it’s disheartening.

A woman spills scolding hot coffee while she’s in the car and burns herself.

Hello! Your dumbass knows it’s hot.

What does she do?

She sues McDonalds and wins a million dollars.

Instead of taking the blame for her own mistake, she shifts it onto McDonalds.

A thief is in the process of robbing a house during the night. He slips and falls and breaks his leg.

What does he do?

He sues the family he was about to rob and wins!

Un-believe-able.

I can go on and on, stating case after case, but let’s move forward before we both get annoyed by the stupidity of it all.

I normally don’t do these types of posts; however, after five months of dealing with blame shifters I can’t keep quiet any longer.

*WARNING! I’m going to vent for a minute*

I manage a propane company. This winter has been insane. It’s been the coldest winter we’ve had in a long ass time. We had a shortage of propane in the fall, then the price of it went through the roof. I’m talking $5.00 a gallon. So a hundred gallons cost five hundred frickin’ dollars.

Wowsers!

Fortunately the owner of where I work was smart enough to squirrel away some propane beforehand. We were able to keep the price per gallon at $3.89, whereas our competitors were way higher. But still, we had to ration it out and people were not happy. To make a long story short, there were customers who blamed the owners for purposely hiking up the price so they can live the high life.

Not true.

I ran into one of these numnuts on my day off, and I lit his ass up. Of course, I did it in a diplomatic way. I didn’t rip his head off or anything, but I told him the truth . . . No, my boss is not purposefully jacking up the price so he can make a huge profit and live a luxurious life. When he goes to the pipeline, he has to pay the astronomical price plus fees on top of that.

Then there were other customers who still owed on their accounts, never made an attempt to pay it and demanded to have their propane tanks filled.

What?

If they would have even made an effort to pay, even if they could only afford like $50.00 a month, I would have worked with them.

Now we move onto the people who never even prepared for the heating season and shifts the blame on us for their own problems. They even resort to trying to guilt us into giving them propane.

WTF?

Okay, venting over. J

The point is, this world would be a better place if everyone took responsibility for their actions and life. But everyday I’m seeing more and more people blaming others for their problems.

Will this ever end?

How do we stop this nonsense?

You know, I could totally blame my mom for not being a proper mother and how far behind in life I am in some things because of it. I’m not going to though, because you know what? I decided to take responsibility for my life, and I’m doing far better than she was when she was my age.

I’m proud of myself.

I did it.

On my own.

Yeah, I think my writing career would be booming right now if she would have done a lot of things differently, but oh well. I’m not going to cry about. I’ll just keep pursuing my goals.

Anyway, I’m not tooting my own horn. I just brought up my own situation as an example of what I’m saying.

I’m concerned where as a human race we’re headed.

I’m worried about a lot of stuff that's going on in our world, but I think if we took responsibility for our own lives things would start to get better.

Maybe I’m too much of an optimist.

I still have hope.

I’ve seen people pull together during a catastrophe.

When a tornado barreled through my town a few years ago, it was frightening. It did a lot of damage, but we all pulled together and not one person I know of blamed or tried to sue anyone for their misfortune.

So, yeah, I still have hope for us all.

Binary Code From Aliens?

I’ve been crazy busy since October. My full time day job has been insane, I run a street team on Facebook, I’ve been marketing my books as best I can, I’m writing two books at the same time, right now I’m working with my cover artist, I’m in the process of getting some kickass swag made that will represent my books, and (deep breath) not to mention I have to do the daily mundane things in life that’s required from all of us. Oh! And find time to read. That's important ya know? I’m seriously running behind schedule, so I haven’t had time to write a proper blog post; therefore I’m reposting this one from 2011. 

Enjoy.

We love watching the History Channel and last night I caught the tail end of a show on Ancient Aliens. Thirty years ago in December 1980, two military airmen were in the English forest. From what I understood, they had an encounter with an alien ship, and when one of the airmen (James) touched the spacecraft, a numerical sequence of ones and zeros went through his head. The two men rarely spoke about the incident afterwards, but James kept getting a mental picture of those codes. He tried to ignore it, but couldn’t, so he wrote them down–the numeric sequence of ones and zeros–in a small notebook. There was like, I think six pages of those numbers he wrote down, and then he tucked the notebook away and never spoke about it until last year. He ended up given a computer programmer he trusted those codes to see if on the off chance they meant something. He was doubtful though. It turns out that the ones and zeros are a binary code. I didn’t know what a binary code was, so I went to Wikipedia and here was what it said:

A binary code is a way of representing text or computer processor instructions by the use of the binary number system’s two-binary digits zero and one. This is accomplished by assigning a bit string to each particular symbol or instruction.

Anyway, after the computer programmer entered those numbers, to his amazement a message came up. This is what the message was:

EXPLORATION OF HUMANITY
52 09' 42.532 N
13 13' 12.69" W
CONTINUOUS FOR PLANETARY ADVANCE

The numbers are supposed to be (they’re guessing) navigational coordinates. They determined that it points to a mysterious sunken island known in Celtic legend as Hy Brasil. Legend says that Hy Brasil was a civilization that was thousands of years ahead of its time. The other Atlantis is what Hy Brasil is occasionally referred to.

So what does this mean?

When I was watching this last night, Kevin had stepped out of the room, so he missed the story. This morning I told him about it, and he told me that each computer is different when entering a binary code. Therefore, you can get a different result from that code. He went on and said just like the Bible Code. You could make anything out of it. Hell, you could do the same thing with Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. Then he said, "Hey, I hate to be a skeptic here and maybe that story and the binary code is true." He paused, shrugged his shoulders and gestured to the TV. "But that black box tends to bend the truth or leave out important facts to suit its purpose. You have to question everything that’s on it."

I wholeheartedly agree with him, that’s why when you watch something like Ancient Aliens, you should do further research on your own. I just never heard a story like it before and that guy James seemed genuine. I mean, he kept those codes for 30 years. I think archaeologists should check out the sunken island that was supposed to be Hy Brasil and maybe they could find something that would definitely say yes, they were a highly advanced civilization.

Anyway, I wanted to share that with you because I thought it was interesting. It also makes me wonder if that binary code is true, then why are aliens exploring humanity? Is their planet in trouble, or are they eventually going to let themselves be known to us and show us a way to advance ourselves? Who knows, but if it does happen, I hope I’m alive to see it.

Anne Rice Gives Writing Advice

Okay, who loves Anne Rice, raise your hand?

*raises hand*

Me! Me! Me!

I grew up reading her vampire chronicle books and The Witching Hour series.

I love them.

I remember when Interview With The Vampire came out in the theater. I didn't think Kevin would dig it, but he did. He really, really, liked it. In fact, the following week we saw it again and now we own the movie on DVD. I’m not a fan of Tom Cruise, but he did a good job on his role as Lestat. However, Tom doesn't look like him. Billy Idol totally does though . . . well, when he was younger. 

Anyway, I came across this interview Anne Rice was kind enough to do. I thought I’d share it with you because it’s about writing.


Enjoy. J
