You might recall a spotlight and review I posted a while back for Kristen Strassel’s Because the Night and Night Moves. Well these two novels have be re-VAMPED (get it), and have gorgeous new covers. But first, today is the cover reveal for WE OWN THE NIGHT, the third and final installment in the Night Songs Collection.

The Ultimate Manipulation. 

Callie Chabot would stop at nothing to save her ex-boyfriend Blade Bennett from the clutches of vampire clan leader Talis de Rancourt, even if means becoming immortal herself. What she doesn’t know is that Blade has already defeated Talis, and he’s waiting for Callie in the afterlife.

Now Callie only has her creator, Tristan Trevosier, to turn to for guidance. But he’s too wrapped up in the debauchery of the Las Vegas rock scene to give a damn about the particulars of being undead. That’s enough to drive Callie crazy on its own, but female vampires are automatic clan leaders.

Not only does Callie have no idea how to wrangle a vampire clan, but her would-be followers have more to gain from her failure. They instead choose to follow Blade—and he’s hell-bent on making Callie pay for her bad decisions. Since he took out the existing clan leader, that automatically puts him at the helm of what should be Callie’s new clan.

A Master of Deception.

That’s when seasoned rogue vampire, Cash Logan, shows up, shrouded in magic and mystery. No one is sure which side Cash is on, but Callie needs to take a chance on the one vampire who is willing to give her the answers she needs, no matter how dark and frightening they may be. Callie must trust her instincts and form alliances that may backfire. Cash shows Callie that playing nice is no longer an option, and that fixing her wrongs won’t always make everything right.

To take control of her clan, Callie must look to her rival to discover exactly what makes her a leader.

Available September 1, 2014.

Cover Reveal for Valentina Cano’s THE ROSE MASTER!

Hello friends. I’ve got a cover reveal for you today that has me really excited. For my non-writer friends, you may wonder why we do these things? Well, first, it’s a VERY exciting day when an author finally gets to showcase their cover, and usually other writers help spread the word–we’re a very supportive bunch, us writers. Second, it gives the book more exposure. I am not a “book blogger” per se, but I do like to feature books that I think are amazing and books I’m excited to read.

This particular novel was pitched to me as Jane Eyre meets Beauty and the Beast, and if you know me at all, you’ll know that I’ve read Jane Eyre probably 1000 times, and watched every single film adaptation known to man. And Beauty and the Beast…come on, that’s just a given, right?

So needless to say, I am VERY excited for this book and I think the cover is simply gorgeous.

The Rose Master Cover Reveal

The day Anne Tinning turns seventeen, birds fall from the sky. But that’s hardly the most upsetting news. She’s being dismissed from the home she’s served at since she was a child, and shipped off to become the newly hired parlor maid for a place she’s never heard of. And when she sees the run-down, isolated house, she instantly knows why:
There’s something wrong with Rosewood Manor.
Staffed with only three other servants, all gripped by icy silence and inexplicable bruises, and inhabited by a young master who is as cold as the place itself, the house is shrouded in neglect and thick with fear. Her questions are met with hushed whispers, and she soon finds herself alone in the empty halls, left to tidy and clean rooms no one visits.
As the feeling of being watched grows, she begins to realize there is something else in the house with them–some creature that stalks the frozen halls and claws at her door. A creature that seems intent on harming her.
When a fire leaves Anne trapped in the manor with its Master, she finally demands to know why. But as she forces the truth about what haunts the grounds from Lord Grey, she learns secrets she isn’t prepared for. The creature is very real, and she’s the only one who can help him stop it. 
Now, Anne must either risk her life for the young man she’s grown to admire, or abandon her post while she still can.

Release Day! ~ Blackfin Sky by Kat Ellis

HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY TO BLACKFIN SKY!

Today is the UK release of Kat Ellis’s Blackfin Sky and let me tell you, I’ve been waiting for this book FOREVER! While today is just the UK release (US release is in September), you can still get a paperback copy (UK version) through Amazon UK.

After a lot of begging on my part, Kat was kind enough to send me an ARC of the US version, which I’ve just started reading, and it’s everything I knew it would be. She had me hooked at the very first chapter with her gorgeous writing. I will be sure to post a review the moment I’m done. 🙂

Be sure to add this one to your TBR list, folks. I promise, you won’t be disappointed.

Blackfin18952405When Sky falls from Blackfin Pier and drowns on her sixteenth birthday, the whole town goes into mourning – until she shows up three months later like nothing happened.

Unravelling the mystery of those missing months takes Sky to the burned-out circus in the woods, where whispers of murder and kidnapping begin to reveal the town’s secrets. But Sky’s not the only one digging up the past – the old mime from the circus knows what happened to her, and he has more than one reason for keeping quiet about it.

Spotlight and Review ~ FATAL by T.A Brock

Fatal_FRONT coverFirst love can be brutal. Sometimes it can be Fatal. Grayson Patch hasn’t been human since he was seventeen years old…and that was nineteen years ago. When he rose from the dead, he had no memory of his former life. Grayson desperately wants to recapture his lost humanity, and he’s been told that there is one person in this world who can save him from his current fate before he begins to decompose. One person whose life must be sacrificed for his. Cori Abbott has a million things to worry about. She’s the new girl in a school that’s a fraction of the size of her old one. Her antisocial tendencies are crippling her ability to make new friends. And then there’s the recent, sudden death of her father, the only man who ever understood her. The last thing Cori wants is the attention of a strange, withdrawn, and consistently angry guy who seems to hate her for no apparent reason. A guy she can’t stop thinking about. Will Cori break through Grayson’s cold exterior and find the human within, the boy who can love and understand her like no other? Will Grayson sacrifice Cori to rid himself of his undead curse, even if it means losing her forever?

Review

5 Stars For FATAL!

There are many YA books on my shelf that I’ve started and never finished (I don’t hate YA, it’s just hard to find ones that capture my attention). This book is not one of them. Avid readers know how rare it is to come across a book that catches you completely off guard, and you will do anything, including ignoring all else, to finish it. THIS is THAT book.

I’m a big fan of zombie shows and movies, but I’ve never actually read a book about zombies (I know, right). I went into this read with an open mind and was pleasantly surprised to find a truly unique approach to zombie lore. T.A. Brock has created zombies in such a way that they’re actually sexy. Who knew? They walk, they talk, they think, and, as it turns out, they love.

Grayson and Cori have a star-crossed romance. At first, it seems that they’re not meant to be. In order for one to live (or live again) the other must die. And when they fall in love, one of them will have to make a terrible choice.

Cori is a lost soul in a strange land, and when she meets Grayson, who also seems a little out of place, her curiosity moves her to connect with him, even if he wants nothing to do with her…or so it seems.

While Grayson comes off as a brooding jerk, at first, it soon becomes clear that he is motivated by an existence he loathes and a decision he doesn’t want to make. But is it really his decision to make?

I love the zombies in this book. This novel will keep you on the edge of your seat and just when you think you’ve got it figured out, the author throws in another twist. T.A. Brock’s writing style is so fluid that you get completely lost in the story. I also appreciate that it was written in 3rd person, which I prefer.

The story wrapped up just enough to satisfy me, but left an opening for the story to continue. I am eager to see what this author does with the rest of the series. It’s definitely one I’ll be recommending to others.

FIRE OF STARS AND DRAGONS REVIEW & GIVEAWAY!

website-fosad-pageFIRE OF STARS AND DRAGONS

By Melissa Petreshock

I don’t think I can express just how much I loved this book!

The cover is what got my interest at first. It’s just TOO pretty to ignore. I love fantasy novels! Like, LOVE! But I usually prefer a more historical-type or otherworldly setting. What shocked me about this book is that, while it’s set in a futuristic “sovereign” America, the novel had an almost historical feel. The world in which Ms. Petreshock has created is a society full of archaic social conventions, where women have little to no power, and a hierarchy of male supernatural beings make all the rules. It was fascinating to learn about this world, and the author did such a great job at covering every little detail of this society so that it actually becomes believable.

My first thought as I read through this book is that it starts out like a supernatural, futuristic version of The Bachelorette. It may sound a little crazy at first, this woman must choose between three suitors, but it all makes sense within this world. And once you get to know the three suitors, you won’t be able to put the book down.

I also liked how the author gave each character his or her own distinct voice. Each character had their own way of speaking, whether modern or ancient, their own accent, and their own thought process that stayed very consistent throughout the story.

This book is engaging, entertaining, and has the perfect amount of heat to entice romance readers and fantasy readers alike. I am also SO glad that the author rounded out the story and gave me answers!

I will definitely recommend this book to others and keep an eye out for more from this author.

The Dia Chronicles ~The Embers of Light Teaser

Guess what! I have the final cover for Book 2 of The Dia Chronicles entitled The Embers of Light.

Unfortunately, it’s a little too soon to reveal it, but what I can do is give you the back cover synopsis.

Hopefully this will hold you over until I can give you more.

The Embers of Light

The descendants of the ancient gods think they’ve found peace, but the time has come when new magic and ancient powers will collide…
Stripped of his Dia powers and left to rot, Malcolm is a prisoner of Valenia—a sentence he finds worse than death. His thoughts of revenge are the only thing keeping him sane, but when he finally manages to escape, Malcolm discovers that living as a mortal is more dangerous than he ever imagined. After stealing from the wrong man, Malcolm becomes a captive once more, only this time his punishment is one that he won’t soon forget. His only hope of survival is Seren, an enigmatic young girl with golden eyes and a malevolence to match his own.
When he’s led to Mara and Corbin, the two responsible for his fall from grace, their new faction of Dia is in chaos, infiltrated by an ancient power thought to have been banished forever. This only fuels Malcolm’s ruthless ambitions, but he soon realizes that he too is under attack, a pawn in a centuries old game of power and greed. As new battle lines are drawn, Malcolm finds himself in unchartered waters, forced to choose between helping those he’s vowed to destroy or give in to his lingering desire to settle the score.
Debts will be paid, lives will be lost, and no Dia will ever be the same.

NIGHT MOVES COVER

We bonded in darkness, over darkness.

Melanie Vaughn’s job ruined everything. Her social life, nonexistent. Her relationship with her boyfriend, a hostile roommate situation. She resolves to fix everything one snowy afternoon, but instead comes home to discover her boyfriend is already exploring other options. Blonder, bustier options. Rage drives Melanie to do the unthinkable.

When Soul Divider was on the top of the world, so was Ryder Maddox. When the band faded into obscurity, Ryder’s luck plummeted with it. In a last ditch effort to rekindle the band’s heyday, Soul Divider teams up with powerful vampire clean leader, Talis de Rancourt. In return for her services, the band pays the ultimate price for never ending fame.

Now on the run, Melanie meets Ryder in a middle of nowhere hotel. She never expected her teenage rock star crush to be as lost and as in need of a companion as she is. Their connection is all consuming, even before they find they share another kinship: murder.

The newly turned vampires in Soul Divider still have a lot to learn. The police and public begin to connect the girls that go missing or die in sync with the band’s tour schedule. Back at home, clues are also adding up against Melanie as well. Between constant media coverage and unrelenting attention from the authorities, Melanie and Ryder find themselves in unchartered territory

Blog Tour Spotlight, Review, and Giveaway ~ Taming Darkness by Kat Daemon

I’m excited to bring you a spotlight and review of an amazing debut novel by Kat Daemon.

Title: Taming Darkness (Taming Darkness #1)

Author: Kat Daemon

Genre: Paranormal Erotic Romance

Release Date: March 3rd 2014

Taming Darkness Cover1

Since he was sentenced to earth eons ago, Lucifer has always lived by three simple rules: Humans are toys that are meant to be played with, love is a useless emotion, and the only creature worth fighting for is himself. To him, nothing matters but his own enjoyment, whether it be manipulating those around him, or indulging in the sins of the flesh with Lilith. Then he found young, sweet, and innocent, Maria, who is everything that Lucifer detests. She has devoted her life to her one true love, God. Unable to resist a challenge, Lucifer sets his sights on tempting Maria away from his enemy. Disguising himself as Lucas Starr, he creates a world that not even Maria can resist. He never planned on having the tables turned on him. Imagine Lucifer’s surprise when Maria brings him to his knees and shows him a glimpse of heaven once more.

Blinded by his arrogance and an unlikely vision, Lucifer falls again, this time forgetting that some lines should never be crossed. When his greatest opponent, Michael, shows up, all Hell breaks loose. Will Maria be able to accept Lucifer for who he truly is, or realize what Michael already knows: some destinies can never be changed?

Review

5 Stars

I was really surprised by how quickly this book had me drawn in. I think I expected a devilish love story where the antagonist is a mysterious villain. But when I discovered the story was told from the devil’s perspective, and when I saw how brilliantly the author created the mind of Lucifer, I was intrigued. Let’s be clear, Luc is certainly a devil. His malevolence is unquestionable. But he also comes across as very human, which I loved. Despite his wicked inclinations, he has human characteristics, like falling in love…with a NUN! If that kind of irony isn’t human, I don’t know what is.

There also seems to be a curiosity in him, a human tendency toward boredom, and an inner struggle that makes him feel so believable as a character.

I really loved this book and look forward to reading more from this talented author.
