Summary:

Nineteen-year-old Myla Lewis has transformed into Great Scala, the only being with the power to move souls out of Purgatory and into Heaven or Hell. Trouble is, a magical object called Lucifer’s Orb is limiting Myla’s abilities. If she tries to move a soul, the Orb’s forcing her to send that spirit straight to Hell.

So, what’s a girl to do? Send innocents to the fiery down-under?

No way. Myla’s gone on a supernatural strike. No souls go anywhere until the Orb’s history. It’s the right thing to do, but Purgatory’s Soul Storage buildings are turning into time bombs. No spirits are moving out, while millions keep coming in. Myla’s determined to find the Orb and send the innocent to Heaven, but she’s running out of time. Soon, the containment fields will burst, releasing a mob of homicidal ghosts.

With Soul Storage ready to explode, Myla’s got enough on her plate without her old enemy, Lady Adair, causing problems. Adair is launching an ingenious campaign to take away everything that Myla holds dear, including Myla’s Angelbound love, Prince Lincoln.

Between their clever ideas and toe-curling kisses, Myla and Lincoln are fighting back. But will they beat the clock or lose everything to Adair’s devious schemes?

Clever #CoverReveal: Famous Love by Lelly Hughes

Title: Famous Love
Author: Lelly Hughes
Release Date: July 3rd, 2017
Cover Designer: Prezidential Visions
Genre: Romance Contemporary
 
Under the bright lights of Nashville, Levi Austin is a country music superstar whose life is rocked by the tragic death of his former wife, leaving him to raise their two daughters. Now faced with having to tell his girls, and making the hard decision about where they’ll live, Levi packs his bags and rushes off to Los Angeles—the last place he wants to be, but the one place where no one will recognize him.
 
Zara Phillips loves two things: her husband Van, and the band she created with her brother, Reverend Sister. To her, her life is perfect until she discovers that her high school sweetheart husband is cheating on her. The paparazzi are relentless, forcing a devastated and heartbroken Zara to stay hidden until the record label demands she shoot a video for the band’s new single, driving her out of seclusion. 
 
Two people collide from opposite worlds. Neither knowing who the other is, yet both intrigued by one another. When Levi spills hot coffee on Zara, everything changes. He’s focused on his daughters, trying to do what’s best for them while Zara is determined to get away from everyone and everything in Los Angeles. 
 
When Levi offers her sanctuary at his home in Nashville, Zara jumps at the opportunity to disappear… with the hopes that Levi comes with her. 
 
What transpires next are the lives of two very different people finding their path along a very bumpy and unforgiving road, who are tested by their loved ones, the media and one ex that doesn’t want to go away quietly.

 

   

 

From FAMOUS LOVE, by LELLY HUGHES. 
Used with permission. All rights reserved.
You’re never prepared for that moment. It could be anything from finding out you’re pregnant or learning that your band, the one you’ve been in since you were seventeen, has just been nominated for a Grammy. I wish my moment were one of those, but unfortunately, mine comes in the form of finding out my husband of ten years, Van Phillips, has been having an affair. 
 
And how does one find this out? Well, if you’re me, you walk into your publicist’s office to find your husband banging her assistant. I mean I’m happy that it’s not my publicist bent over her desk with my husband pounding into her because that would really ruin my day. 
 
There is no recovery for something like this. Even as I stand here with my mouth open with tears streaming down my face, nothing fixes this. Not the look of regret that he gives me as he pulls out of her and quickly stuffs himself back into his pants. Not the “oh shit” look she flashes as she hurries to fix her skirt, making me wonder where the fuck her panties are. 
 
You’re not prepared when your publicist actually walks into her office oblivious that two people were just fucking on her desk and she asks if you’re ready to get to work on your next tour. 
 
What the fuck does someone do in this situation? There isn’t a handbook on how to handle your husband when he gets caught cheating, let alone when you find out he has been unfaithful, although there should be because it seems to happen more often than not in Los Angeles. It’s clear that I should’ve taken some classes on how to handle my emotions by the death glare he’s given me. It’s as if I’m supposed to “man up” and pretend as if nothing has happened. Like I am somehow at fault here. 
 
Unfortunately, that is exactly what I do because I’m moving on autopilot, still trying to decipher if what I saw was real or an optical illusion because I can’t fathom why my husband would cheat on me. It’s not like we don’t have a healthy sex life. In fact, he had no qualms taking care of my needs this morning. Apparently, I didn’t take care of his, though. 
 
I take one of the two seats in front of Laura’s desk, cringing when she sets a pile of folders in the spot where my husband had her assistant bent over, the same one who is now scurrying away to fetch coffee. Not that I would drink anything she hands to me because for all I know she’s trying to kill me so she can have my cheating-ass-bastard of a spouse all to herself. Newsflash, Trina… Trisha… Tanya, whatever the fuck her name is… she can have him. As far as I’m concerned this is unforgivable, and the fact that he’s sitting down next to me as if nothing has happened makes my skin crawl. 
 
Oh God, he fucking smells like her cheap ass perfume too. I pretend to gag, except I’m really gagging since my stomach is doing its own version of gymnastics and I have a feeling that I’m about to lose my breakfast all over Laura’s desk any second now. I lean away and not so subtly move my chair farther from him. He reaches out to touch me, but I glare at him. I throw so many daggers that I’m imagining each one hitting him square in his chest. He must understand that I don’t want to be fucked with right now because he pulls his hand away.
 
That is until the tart walks back in with two cups of coffee. Laura doesn’t look up from the paper she’s reading when her mug is set on her desk, but my husband, he fucking perks up like this bitch is his only means to feed his caffeine addiction. And because I am living in some alternative universe, she has no qualms about brushing up against his arm and making sure he can see her tits when she unnecessarily bends over to give him his coffee.
 
“That’s it, I’m out of here,” I say as I stand up.
 
Laura looks up quickly, she’s confused and rightly so.
 
“Sit down, Zara,” Van has the nerve to say. I can’t even be bothered to look at him so I look at Laura and smile as best I can because right now shit hurts inside and all I want to do is break down and cry.
 
“I walked in a few minutes early for our meeting and found Van and your assistant fucking on your desk. You might want to sterilize it and find a new assistant because if you don’t, I’m walking.”
 
I don’t need Laura to say anything. The wide eyes and open mouth are enough for me to know that I’ve shocked her. Behind me, I can hear Van yelling my name, but he’s not following me. No, he chose to stay back with the bimbo instead of getting up and chasing after his wife to tell her how sorry he is and that what he did was a mistake. But I know better. I could tell by the look on his face that he was only sorry that he didn’t get to finish before he got caught.
 

 

Lelly Hughes is named after her grandmothers. She’s a dreamer who writes words to tell stories about falling in love. Ocean fanatic. Loves the feel of warm sand.
 
FAMOUS LOVE is her first novel.

Rapturous #NewRelease #Blitz: Talking With The Dead by Shiloh Walker

 
Title: Talking With The Dead
Author: Shiloh Walker
Re-Release Date: June 29th 2017
Genre:
Contemporary Romance
 
 
 
 
Surrounded by death,
a man with a terrible gift reaches for life.
 

 

A horrific tragedy blasted open a door in young
Michael O’Rourke’s mind—cursing him with the ability to talk with the Dead.
Nearly two decades later, Michael has moved from victim to survivor, using his
abilities to seek out those who would go unjudged.


With his gift, he talks to those who’ve died
violently and seeks out their killers. Only once he’s found the murderer, can
the victims be at rest. After his last case, the only thing he wants is peace
and he hopes to find it in the small town of Mitchell, Indiana. 

 

But something is horribly wrong—the dead are
waiting for him there, as well. 

 

Small town sheriff Daisy Crandall is frustrated.
The murder investigation she’s leading is going nowhere, the few leads she’s
had haven’t panned out. She needs a break—this case is personal and when a
stranger arrives, turning up where he shouldn’t be, she’s suspicious. Finding
out that he is more than what he appears to be should shock her but doesn’t.
The fact she’s highly attracted to him at the worst possible time is a
hindrance. 

 

Unfortunately, teaming up with Michael is the
only way. 

 

Now it’s a race against time before the killer
destroys the life of his next victim…
 

 

This
book has been previously published. A prequel to the FBI Psychics series.
 

 

**Warning: this title contains the following:
explicit sex, graphic language, violence **
  
Talking with the Dead
**Mnix
~ Amazon Review**
 
Talking with the Dead is an intriguing quick read with a touch of romance. The main focus of the
book revolves around the mystery of the killer with the romance between Michael
and Daisy running on the 
sidelines. I agonized with Michael in parts of

the story, his inner struggles are written flawlessly. Michael and Daisy both
have personal struggles to overcome before they can admit to wanting to be with
each other. It was refreshing to watch as Michael dealt with his ghosts and
finally went after what he wanted, Daisy.

Although
Lucas never mentioned it, and neither did Mom, Michael O’Rourke was a
disappointment and he knew it.
Lucas,
now, Lucas was everything their charlatan mother could ever hope for. She’d
taught him well, teaching him how to run scams, how to pick pockets and how to
evade cops and social workers. Yeah, she’d taught him well, all right – maybe
too well. Lucas was sixteen. Strong. Smart. He wasn’t going to hang around and
keep helping his mother run her scams.
She
called herself Lavonne, but her birth name was Rachel O’Rourke. Her great gift
in life was in the grift. She could run a scam like nothing Michael had ever
seen. Evan Lucas couldn’t sucker them in the way Mama could.
But
Lucas had gifts, real gifts, the kind
Mama liked to pretend she had. He saw things.
The
“sight” Mama called it. Ran in her family, she liked to say, although Michael
didn’t’ think she had ever seen anything that he couldn’t see with his own two
eyes. Lucas once told Mike that their mama couldn’t see a spirit if it bit her
on the ass. They’d laughed themselves sick, thinking about it.
Lucas
could see, though. He knew things. He
had known when it was time to leave New Orleans and he had known when it was
time to leave Memphis and he had warned her about going to Nashville. She’d
pissed people off there, but Lavonne was stupid. Plain and simple. She was
going to do what she wanted to do.
Shiloh
Walker has been writing since she was a kid… she fell in love with vampires
with the book Bunnicula and has worked her way up to the more…ah… serious
vampire stories. She loves reading and writing anything paranormal, anything
fantasy, but most all anything romantic. Once upon a time, she worked as a
nurse, but now she writes full time and lives with her family in the Midwest.
She also writes under the pen name J.C. Daniels.

Clever #CoverReveal: Wicked Dirty & Wicked Torture by J.Kenner

Sometimes bad isn’t good enough…

On the outside, Lyle Tarpin is a clean-cut Hollywood actor whose star is on the rise. Inside, he’s battling his own demons, shunning relationships and finding solace in the arms of a string of anonymous women paid very well for their discretion.

But when he’s photographed in a compromising position by an over-eager reporter, the only way to save his career is to say that the woman he was with is his fiancée. And now Lyle has to play a very public game with the only woman who’s ever managed to get under his skin.

Struggling waitress Sugar Laine agrees to spend one night with Lyle—but only because she’s desperate to save her family home. She never expects that a night of passion will turn into a pretend engagement … or that the heat between them will blossom into love.

But sometimes love has a price.

And now the only question is—can Lyle and Sugar afford to pay it?

Author Interview:

  1. What is your family like?

My family is nothing like the families in the book, I better clarify that up front. My parents are incredibly supportive and have allowed me to follow my dreams. I have two siblings: a brother and a sister. They are great; we are very close. I am the youngest.

My brother and I used to fight a lot and that dynamic inspired my idea for the three feuding families in the books. We don’t fight anymore, as we’ve outgrown that phase, but it gave me plenty to write about.

  1. What were you like as a child?

I lived in a fantasy world all the time—I was always inventing stories and reenacting them. I lived in costumes. I had a cat suit that I particularly loved. I wore that cat suit until the legs only came to my knees. It’s weird…for some reason when you dress like a cat all the time you don’t make a ton of friends. But anyway, that’s why my parents signed me up for acting classes. I started taking acting classes at the age of six. I loved it from the start.

  1. I understand you still have the acting bug. What are you doing now?

I am currently studying acting at the University of Michigan so I am currently focusing on campus productions.  I was the lead in a short film that was just selected as a finalist at the New Filmmakers Film Festival in New York.  So that’s cool.

  1. What’s your favorite part of acting? Favorite thing about improv?

My favorite part of acting is initially stepping into the shoes of a character and just beginning to break them in: finding out what they want, how they talk, how they move, etc.

My favorite part of improv is when you are easing into a scene and the really good lines just start flowing, especially when you’re working with a talented partner.

  1. Were you a big reader as a kid?

In 5th grade, I started at a new elementary school when I moved to Naples, FL. They had a reading contest for whoever read the most books. I ended up reading like 200 books, which was a bit of overkill as the next highest kid read about 75 books, but apparently I’m more competitive than I realized. I just really wanted to beat this girl in my class who told me she was a better reader.

  1. Were you drawn to a certain genre as a kid?

When I was younger, I really disliked reading. My mom would read me the books that my brother liked and I just never got into them. One day she was at the bookstore picking out books for us, and she mentioned to the owner that I didn’t seem interested in reading and he asked her about my personality and interests. He recommended that she try some fantasy books for me. She brought home a few of those books and from then on, all I did was read and write. I love young adult fantasy.

  1. Were there certain authors that you really liked?

I’ve always loved Rick Riordan, and every kid in my generation loves JK Rowling. My mom started guarding the Harry Potter books and reading them aloud to us, because otherwise I would read the whole book in a night and then tell my siblings what happened. We would barely leave the house until we had finished each book. Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games series has also been phenomenal.

  1. Do you work with an outline or do you just write? Do you ever get stuck?

Normally, I have a basic idea of where the story is going when I start writing a chapter. But there have been times when I am writing the chapter that I suddenly decide to take it in a new direction. Sometimes I struggle with writing a chapter or a character in the book, so to overcome that I’ll take a break and work on another project.

  1. Do you have a favorite character in The Sparks?

It alternates a lot. In general, I’ve always been a fan of characters that are only around for one book and that are very big and eccentric. I really like Michael Taurlum because he’s kind of the epitome of what’s wrong with the Taurlum family and he’s just such a child. So it was really interesting to write about him and make him such an aggressive, haughty character.

  1. If your book was made into a movie, which actors would be cast as the main characters?

I’ll try my best at this one. (Disclaimer: this would be one expensive movie . . . )

Dane

I’m silent. I’m trained. I’m lethal.

My hand skimming down your thigh, my gaze a weapon—I know more ways to kill you than please you.

But you’re not paying for my aim. You’re paying for my control. Bringing you a breath away from ecstasy, watching you beg as I hold back your release, I’ll show you exactly what you’ve been missing. Your hunger is my currency and five thousand is my price. I only have one rule—no repeats, because I’m not for keeps. I’m for sale.

One slow grind and I’ll give you exactly what you paid for.

EXCERPT:

Staring into her ice-blue eyes, I grasped her chin and she went dead still. I searched every inch of her face, but she didn’t even blink. “You like giving orders?” I quietly asked. “Or taking them?”

She drew in a breath at my second question, but none of the defensiveness or attitude she had earlier returned. “Do you like bleeding all over your floor?”

I stared at her. I was no longer looking at another man’s submissive on my floor. I was looking at a desperate, broken woman who was holding herself together. She wasn’t just beautiful, she was fucking stunning. The instinct to protect kicked in and I wanted to kill her husband. “Tell me why you ran.”

“What happened to your side?” she deflected.

I dropped my hand and pulled my shirt over my head one-handed. “I was stabbed.”

Her gaze cut to my ribs then to my shoulder. She tried to hide her surprise. “And your shoulder?”

“Shot.” She was no longer the inconvenience I’d encountered an hour ago. She was a fucking disaster about to detonate my life to hell. Every instinct I had said she was going to shred my careful existence worse than any fucking IED.

She scanned the other scars on my chest, then she pressed the kitchen towel to my ribs. “Your stitches aren’t holding.”

I lifted my arm to give her better access because I was a goddamn fool. “I broke through them in the barn.” Her scent was pure woman and desire, but she smelled like fucking trouble.

Oblivious to my thoughts, she nodded once. “Do you have a first aid kit?”

I peered down at her, wondering how far I would let this go. “Would you know what to do with it if I did?”

“I guess you’re about to find out. Where is it?” Her straight white-blonde hair covered her face as she pulled back the towel to see the wound.

Already pushing at the last boundary I had in my life, I brushed the strands behind her ear.

She flinched, then sucked in a breath and glanced up at me.

“You okay?” I quietly asked.

Author Bio:

Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling. She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.

Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…

But Seriously?

Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.

She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.

To find out more about Sybil Bartel, be sure to follow her on Twitter (she loves to hear about your favorite book boyfriend!), visit her website, like her on Facebook or join her Facebook group Book Boyfriend Heroes for exclusive excerpts and giveaways.

Blurb From Goodreads:

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there were zombies…

That’s how it all started. Authors have created a major problem with stories like Cinder, The Dark Queen, and Asleep, and it’s wreaking havoc here in Ever After. Our queens are fighting for their lives.

Rather like Mother Nature, keeper of the fine balance that’s life in your world, tales that begin with “Once upon a time” were never meant to be messed with.

Now, Ariel is underwater with all the defenses she’s been launching, Aurora hasn’t slept in weeks, and Rapunzel is tangled in… Well, I can’t even begin to tell you.

Rather than try, I’ll let you see for yourself. You and I will talk again afterward—if I survive long enough. So, as our fateful story begins:

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away…

My Review:

Ooooh, serials suck, way too short and seem to stop in the middle of a scene. Which of course means that as soon as I can I will be binge reading this whole thing. It didn’t stop in the middle of a scene but damn, it sure felt that way. And of course has me wondering when I can do the binge reading lol. Snow White’s sister, Rose is married to the King’s brother, Snow’s husband. Rose is desperate to have a child, to the point that it’s obvious that something bad is going to happen… and we find out nothing in this episode but I look forward to what could potentially come!!

Ferocious 5Four authors and a muse have come together on a mission to bring the world something new and exciting rather than the same tired anthologies or collections so common to the book world.

Novel one, Fractured Glass: A Novel Anthology, hit the world by surprise, taking several awards, and blowing readers away with its seamless integration from one author to the next.

When they collaborated a second time, 7: The Seven Deadly Sins was created, and it, too, blew readers away with its unique approach to storytelling.

Who are these writers?

Jo Michaels, N. L. Greene, Tia Silverthorne Bach, and Kelly Risser.

Blurb From Goodreads:

Book Eight of the bestselling Fallen Immortals series
**START with KISS OF A DRAGON (Book 1)**

I am a Dragon Prince of the House of Smoke… and I am in love with the wrong woman.  Leksander never meant to fall for an angeling, and he certainly never meant to hurt her. The protection of humanity is his most sacred duty, but how can he do that when he can’t even protect the woman he loves? Saving Erelah means saving himself—he’ll be useless for anything else until he does, including finding a mate to fulfill a ten-thousand-year-old treaty to keep humanity safe from the fae. While he may not win her love, he will risk everything to save his angeling from her Fall…

The worlds of shadow angels and vengeful Dark Fae collide in this penultimate book in the Fallen Immortal series. Either Leksander and Erelah will save the mortal and immortal worlds with a Love that is True… or they’ll bring a Fall like the world has never seen.

The FALLEN IMMORTALS series is a modern Beauty and the Beast story with flaming HOT dragon shifters, vengeful Dark Fae, and beguiling fallen angels. Only readers over 18 should embark on this epic series of dangerous love.

My Review:

GIVE ME THE NEXT BOOK NOW!!! This series is so unique because it’s not just human mates (other than the couple of course), there was a witch and now a half angel. And there are so many interesting thing occurring that I just devoured the words. If I could, I would totally climb into this world of dragons, demons, vampires, fae, witches and angels. So, we know this will end up being an HEA but the journey to get there is full of surprises and unexpected twists. Wonder if I can squeeze in another read through… it’s worth it!!
