NEW RELEASE BY LINDSAY AVALON ~ SONG OF THE ABYSS

Posted on

Synopsis 3
Her wedding day should have been a joyous occasion for the selkie Princess Nerissa. Instead, it was a nightmare. When the man who’d pledged to honor and love her attempts to murder the Princess, she flees for her life. Although she escapes, she finds herself trapped between skins, neither human nor seal. Consumed by hatred she waits, taking refuge in the sea and compelling men to come to her as she searches for revenge.

But will her thirst for vengeance cost her a chance at true love?

*** Previously publised in the Once Upon A Twisted Time anthology, this is NOT your average fairy tale. Newly revised with added content, don’t miss the twisted take on a classic fairy tale! ***

Author Bio

I am a wife, a programmer, and now an author. I have an adorable mini Schnauzer and more books than I have room for. I love reading romance because no matter what may be happening in my life, I can always count on my books to end happily ever after. The day I met my husband was the day I truly began believing in happily ever after. After hearing me complain a few too many times that I had “nothing” to read despite the hundreds of paperbacks scattered around the house, my husband began suggesting I write my own stories. When I finally took his advice I discovered that although I enjoy my day job as a software engineer, my true calling is to be an author.

My sister drilled into me an appreciation for fantasy and mythology, something I try to bring to my books. My debut novel, “Breaking the Nexus”, started as a book written for NaNoWriMo and has grown to so much more. It was the conduit that introduced me to a fantastic group of independent authors who have changed my life in unimaginable ways.

When I’m not writing, I’ve found a passion for blogging and interviewing fellow authors. I also love reading (of course!), baking, crochet, sewing sock monkeys, playing video games, and all sorts of random crafts. I have an incurable love of rubber duckies and stuffed animals, and I believe nobody should have to grow up if they don’t want.

 Excerpt

#Excerpt

“I’m going to tell her tonight Corbin. This time I will do it, I swear.”

My foot is tapping the wood porch in front of Jos and Luna’s place while my hand keeps combing my hair back. Damn it why can’t I get up the nerve to tell Josephine about Robin? Because she will hate me that’s why. Jesus, I hate me. No wonder that prick Ryan was being such a dick. I think he’s just a natural asshole but with the information he has, he is ready to take me down. That shit bag is chomping at the bit to sink his teeth into Josephine. I know once she learns what happened she’ll dump me. Perhaps that’s what I deserve, to have the most beautiful woman show me heaven and then drop my ass.

God, I hate myself right now.

“Well, wait until after dinner, okay Pierce? I want to have a good time tonight.”

Corbin pats me on the back and rings the doorbell. We can hear laughter coming from inside. The door swings wide and Luna is standing there in a long green silk dress looking almost as striking as the gorgeous raven haired beauty standing just behind her.

My nerves disappear for a moment as I try to catch my breath. Josephine has her head tilted down ever so slightly, but her gaze is set upon me. She is so beautiful standing there in her white dress. It makes her skin glow or eyes sparkle or something that stops the world for that moment.

Luna practically knocks me over to get to Corbin, jumping into his arms and snapping me back into reality. I feel a hand on my arm, firm but gentle if that can happen. Looking over, I see Josephine smiling.

“Are you okay Pierce? You should watch where you’re going Luna, you nearly knocked over my man!”

Did she just call me her man? Perhaps this double date wasn’t such a good idea. I am sure Corbin won’t mind if I cancel and Josephine and I stay the night in bed.

“Are you feeling alright Pierce? You have a strange look on your face.”

“Ahhh…Yeah, I’m okay. Sorry, my mind was somewhere else for a moment.”

“I think I can guess Pierce — did it have anything to do with my bedroom?”

She is smirking as she somehow reads my mind right now. How does she do that?

I wrap my arm around her waist and pull her in to feel her warm body next to mine. The soft beat of her heart reverberates through me as I inhale her sweet floral scent. I don’t think I will ever be able to smell honeysuckles ever again without Josephine popping into my head. Even if she leaves me. Shit! I just remembered why she would leave me. I nuzzle my head into her neck to make the nerves go away.

BOOK REVIEW & SUPER SALE ~ CHECK OUT THE HOLLY PROJECT BY K.A. STERRITT (PENNY STEPHANIE)

Posted on

CHECK OUT THE HOLLY PROJECT WHILE IT IS FREE!!!! 12/12-12/14The Holly Project

By K. A. Sterritt

Release date: November 14, 2014
“One foot in front of the other. Breathe in, breathe out.”
Holly
Ashton hasn’t celebrated her birthday since her mother passed away.
Instead, it’s the one day of the year that she allows herself to grieve.
The rest of the year is spent pretending to be the strong and
independent woman she wants to be.
Professionally, she has it all together. A great job as an architect at Sydney’s most prestigious firm keeps her focused.
Her
personal life is far less charmed. Emotionally detached from everyone
other than her small circle of friends and family, relationships are a
no-go zone.
Life is exactly how she wants it to be – until the day of her twenty-fifth birthday.
A chance encounter with Ryan Davenport, CEO of a property development firm, turns her tightly controlled life upside down.
Ryan
is driven, ambitious and used to getting what he wants – and very
unexpectedly, what he wants is the beautiful, smart-mouthed Holly
Ashton.

When neither of them believes in happily ever afters, how are they supposed to find their own?

Review5 Pennies

This review was difficult for me to write because there is just so much I want to say about this book, but I don’t want to take anything away from readers getting their own experience when reading it.  The Holly Project is a very moving story about life, death, friends, family, and the journey of one girl to discover that there is a difference between just existing and living.

I really loved this book and can’t wait to see what will come next from K.A. Sterritt.

Holly suffers a great loss at the early age of 15 years old.  Loss always hits everyone differently, but in this case it had a profound effect on Holly’s life and the decisions that she makes in her personal life.  She grew up seeing a perfect love story between her dad and mom, so after her mother passed and she saw the shell of her dad, she made a decision from that day forward that she would never do that to anyone.  She would avoid love and relationships at all costs.  But sometimes fate has different plans.

Holly has a core group of friends, Audrey who has been in her life since childhood and is like a second sister.  Then you have Zara and Jason, both she met at the University, the foursome is very close and hangs out all the time together.  Even though Holly has a great start of a career as an architect and great friends, she is still not living.  She is basically floating through life and waiting for the inevitable death that will come.

When Holly lands her dream job and finds out her new client is the Ryan Davenport, she is floored and not sure what to think or do.  The instant chemistry they have for each other is amazing to watch develop.  The journey that we see over the span of a year for Holly, her friends, career, family and Ryan is one that fairy tales are made of…There is even a wicked witch known as Rachael.

Throughout this book we get to witness some very high moments and the lowest of the low moments for Holly, but we also get to witness her growth as an independent woman.  The discoveries that she makes and the strides that she makes for her future make for an amazingly moving story to read.  We get to see if two anti-relationship individuals can come together to make a future.

When Holly meets with her father at the suggestion of Audrey is one of my favorite parts of the book.  It is so raw and heart-warming to witness the changes in Holly just from talking with her dad.  When he explains to her that you can’t look at the end of life but you have to cherish what you were able to have, made me have to grab a tissue…

Holly’s father’s response to her question, “How are you even functioning?  Because for eighteen incredible years, I had everything. Some people never get that – I got eighteen years. Of course I wanted more. I wanted my forever. But I was lucky to get any time at all with that women…She’s still here with me Holly.  I’m not just functioning. I’m living.”

Synopsis 3

#Synopsis:

Everything Avianna Linton thought she knew was shattered in one traffic stop. With her life turned upside down, she flees to the bright lights of New York City hoping for anonymity and a new life.

Rising from nothing, Noah Adams holds onto his power and control with a bone-crushing grip. No one dared challenge his authority until her…

Avi’s disdain for Noah is barely contained, and Noah does everything he can to restrain himself—a concept he has little experience with.

There’s more between the two than either of them realize. A force looms near, hovering with deadly precision and motivated solely by revenge.

Avi wonders who her new friends truly are and if she’s already in too deep. Noah, accustomed to getting what he wants, will do whatever it takes to draw Avi’s in deeper.

Deeper is an interracial romantic suspense novel by new author Allyn Lesley.

#Excerpt

© Allyn Lesley 2014

Where the fuck is that little she-devil?

Zo pointed toward the dance floor, addressing his employer’s unvoiced question. “Under the ball.”

Noah saw her clear as day and dancing way too close with someone who might soon be leaving the club with a limp. He blew out a breath. She knew better than this, yet she still tested the limits set up for her protection.

A restraining hand on Noah’s arm paused him mid-stride. “Boss?”

Noah’s eyes widened at Zo’s hand. Immediately, the younger man’s hand fell away, and he wisely stepped back. Even in the dim light, Noah saw embarrassment tinge Zo’s face.

            “I, um. Excuse me, Mister Adams, but I can’t let you go over there,” Zo said, swallowing the fear his boss evoked.

“Let. Me?” Noah pointed at himself and straightened to his impressive six feet and five inches. “And who’s going to stop me?”

Author Bio

Meet the Author:

SJ Molloy, British Author of ‘The Luminara Series’ was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. As a young child, her family moved and raised her in Lanarkshire, Scotland where she currently resides with her husband, two daughters and her energetic, hyperactive loving gun dog who is utterly spoiled.

SJ is a qualified Fitness Instructor and Health & Fitness Motivator of various fitness styles and disciplines. Music and dance aerobics have always been a pleasure and passion for her. SJ will sporadically make up dance style routines at any hour of the day when a move comes to her or piece of music moves or inspires her.  Currently not teaching classes, she is focusing her time into nurturing her yearning passion for creative writing, exchanging one visualisation for another.

As a child, SJ loved to write in journals and make up short stories and has a flare for all things creative. With an overactive imagination at times, SJ adores to make notes, visualise scenes and settings to create characterisations.

While on holiday with her family one summer reading book after book, she had a flash of inspiration and has had various ideas whirling around in her mind ever since. It was not until she pulled back on teaching classes that she found the courage, time and insight into actually bringing these ideas to life.

In February 2013 she decided to bring that imagination to light by beginning her writing  journey with ‘Lussuria’ the first instalment in ‘The Luminara Series’. ‘Lussuria’ was first published late November 2013, then re-published in April 2014. ‘L’amore’ the second instalment was published in June 2014.

Being a self-confessed book junkie, she loves nothing better than to get lost in an emotional and moving book. A true romantic at heart, her guilty pleasure is reading heart-warming, passionate stories and falling in love with her favourite fictional characters.

With nine books already mapped out in ‘The Luminara Series’, SJ’s busy creative mind has already planned two more fictitious novels, both stand-alone romance books and very different in their own right.

When she is not writing or reading, spending time with family and friends or exercising and walking her dog, SJ loves all things practical and creative. Dancing, music, cooking, travelling, good food and wine and painting are her favourite past times along with laughter, lots and lots of laughter.

ExcerptI opened the door when we pulled up in my driveway and got out before he even had a chance to turn the car off. He got out and quickly followed me up the walkway. I turned around at the front door with my hands on my hips. “Look Jaxson, I am really tired and I just want to go inside and go to bed. Thank you for taking me, but I will talk to you later.”
He advanced on me so fast that my head was spinning when he pressed me up against the front door. He had his mouth crushed to mine before I could even protest. His hands were on either side of my face holding my mouth to his. I tried to push away, but he didn’t budge.
His tongue darted out and licked the seam of my lips. I tried to push away once more, but my resolve was quickly tearing down and the push was barely more than a nudge. My hands stayed on his chest and slowly made their way up until they were locked around his neck.
“Mia, I don’t want anyone but you. Let me make love to you,” he whispered against my lips.
My mouth had a mind of its own and parted to let him in. As his tongue intertwined with mine and I knew I had lost this fight.

Author Bio
My pen name is Jessika Klide. I’m from LA … Lower Alabama. The deep South! Since I write erotic romance, and my mind is super slutty, it’s just better to use a pen name. Trust me on this!
The stories I write are about true love, with lots of kinky erotica sprinkled throughout and more than one happy ending.

 

Like most writers, I’m an avid reader. When I read a book, I want to be immersed in the world, invested in the characters, feel what they feel and hear them talking. I write the same way, wanting my readers to experience my story this way. When the book(s) is finished, I want you, my reader, to feel that you have escaped into another reality and to say, “That was incredible read.” I want fans for life.

BOOK REVIEW ~ NEW RELEASE ~ GIVEAWAY ~ REPARATION, BOOK #3 THE KANE TRILOGY BY STYLO FANTOME (PENNY STEPHANIE)

Posted on

Reparationebook

Synopsis 3

The Devil has met his match

When Tatum O’Shea decides it’s time for some payback, no one is safe from her new game – not even the devil himself. Tate is going to get her happily ever after, even if it means making everyone else unhappy in the process.

But a persistent Jameson, a meddling Sanders, and an amorous baseball player make it very hard for a girl to keep her focus, and suddenly it seems Tate has a few too many suitors for her fairy tale ending.

Sometimes, it’s very difficult to tell who Prince Charming really is …

WARNING: may induce Kindle throwing, screaming at fictional characters, and possibly a few tears. Also graphic sexual situations and sadomasochistic themes.

Review5 Pennies

Sometimes it is so hard to begin the third book in a trilogy, because you know the inevitable end is near.  This case was no different.  The rollercoaster ride that is Jameson and Tatum’s story has been amazing but all good things must come to an end.  And I must add what an end it is!!!

Stylo Fantome has a way of writing that pulls the reader in, makes you feel what the characters are feeling, makes you want to hurt and yell at the characters, and also makes you fall in love with them even more.  It is VERY important to take note when an author gives you a warning prior to reading the book, for example: WARNING: may induce Kindle throwing, screaming at fictional characters, and possibly a few tears. Because in the case of this book there might be times you must step away from your kindle and take a depth breath before continuing, LOL….

I have absolutely loved every minute of this trilogy; it is one that I want to read again, just because.

Tatum has had one crazy life that doesn’t get any easier in this book.  I do believe sometimes she makes it harder than it needs to be, but she does have lots of issues to deal with that surround not only Jameson but also her family and her past.

In this book we get to see even more parts of what makes up Jameson, the Devil.  I don’t think he is 100% Devil, he has some very good qualities that are starting to show, but it takes time to get through all of the layers.

Then you have Sanders, what can I say but I WANT MY OWN SANDERS!!! How can you not love all of his quirks, his bluntness and is unconditional love for Jameson and Tatum.  After Tatum kissed Sander’s his reaction was priceless:

“That was very nice. I’m sure, he breathed. She chuckled…(Tatum said) Sandy, if you have sex the way you kiss, then you have nothing to worry about, she laughed fanning herself. Thank you. It was very lovely. But may I be honest?” he asked, finally opening his eyes.  She smiled, always. I do not have any siblings that I know of but if I did, I imagine that if I kissed one of them, it would feel very much like the kiss you and I just shared.”  Tate laughed even harder…

I was amazed at the amount of content in this final book, once I started reading it I couldn’t put it down.  This is one twisted love story, where everyone is just a little crazy, but all together they are one great group of loving people.  Thank you Stylo Fantome for such a phenomenal trilogy, I can’t wait to see what you release next!!!!

Excerpt

She showed Ang the sideboard where Jameson kept most of his every day things – a lot of cuff links, tie pins, watches, things of that nature. Everything plated in gold and diamond and platinum. While Ang guffawed over everything, Tate made her way over to the bed. Knelt on top of it and crawled towards Jameson’s side.

“Holy fuck, Tate, this table holds more money than I’ll ever see in my life. I don’t know whether to be impressed, or disgusted,” Ang called out from behind her. She pulled a box out of Jameson’s night stand and then turned back to Ang.

“Look at this,” she offered, knee walking back towards him. He met her at the edge of the bed and she opened the box. “This is a Jacob and Co. watch.”

“It’s awesome,” he said, taking the box into his hands and looking over the timepiece.

“It’s worth over $300,000.”

Fuck!” he exclaimed, and dropped the box. It bounced on the mattress and rolled, the lid snapping shut. She laughed and picked it up, sat it on the pillows.

“I know, right? Who would spend that kind of money on a watch?” she asked.

“Why the fuck would you even let me touch that? That watch is worth more than I am,” he laughed as well, but he looked a little shaky.

“I think it’s funny. All this stuff, it’s silly,” she said, reaching out and playing with the button on the blazer he was wearing. He was taller than Jameson, but leaner. The blazer was pretty loose on him.

“It’s fucking stupid. A watch!? Why? How often does he wear it?” Ang asked. Tate shrugged, unbuttoning the jacket and pushing it open.

“Not often. Once in Spain. You should see the shit he keeps in the safe,” she said, plucking at his shirt. He began absent mindedly batting at her hands while he glanced around the room.

“You’re shitting me. Please tell me it’s behind a huge portrait of like his dog or something,” he chuckled. She hooked her fingers inside his belt.

“No. It’s in the closet,” she replied.

“Tate, what are you doing?” he asked, finally clueing into the fact that she was touching him. She smiled up at him. Ang liked to pretend he liked being poor, turned up his nose at rich people, but really, he was fascinated by it, and even better, distracted by it. It was one of the things that had attracted him to Tate, she knew. It was probably part of what drew him to her sister.

Bitch.

“What? I feel like I haven’t touched you in a long time,” she said, pulling him close and wrapping her arms around his waist. She pressed the side of her face to his chest and he sighed, wrapping his arms around her shoulders.

“Are you really okay? You kinda scare me, sometimes,” he mumbled. She ignored the sadness in his voice and worked her hands up his back. He felt so different than Jameson.

“I’m okay, Ang. I’m happy here. Everything is great,” she whispered, massaging her fingers back down his back. He shivered under her touch.

“You can always come live with me,” he said softly. She laughed low in her throat and pulled away a little, running her hands up and down his sides.

“Do you think your girlfriend would appreciate that?” she asked, watching him from under hooded eyelids. He ran his hands under her hair, lifting it away from her shoulders and piling it all on the back of her head.

“I don’t think she’d care, but more importantly, I don’t care. You’ve been my best friend for a million years,” he replied. She smiled, running her teeth over her bottom lip while she pressed herself against him.

“Sometimes a little more than a friend,” her voice was soft. He laughed, scratching his fingers over her scalp.

“Most of the time. God, we used to have fun,” his voice fell into a murmur as his eyes wandered over her face.

Please, don’t hate me after this. I have to get my soul back.

“Used to?” she asked, her voice soft as she ran her hands along his body.

“Tater tot, we haven’t had fun since Satan came to town,” he chuckled, his hands moving to the back of her neck.

“Hmmm, he’s not in town right now,” she reminded him. He narrowed his eyes.

“No, he’s not, and I doubt he would appreciate me seducing his succubus in his lair,” he told her.

“I doubt he’d care. Besides, succubi are supposed to sleep with lots of people,” she pointed out.

“Succubi? Is that how you pluralize it?”

“Succubuses sounds weird.”

“Like a slutty bus.”

“Slutty buses.”

“Wait,” he stopped. “Did you just imply that you want to sleep with me?”

“Ang. If I laid it on any thicker, I’d be staked out on the mattress,” she said bluntly.

“I thought it was ‘against the rules‘, or some bullshit,” he said, glancing around the room, like he was checking for hidden cameras, or waiting for Jameson to pounce out of the shadows and eat him.

“That was before; besides, since when have you cared about what upsets Jameson?” she evaded answering him.

“I don’t. But I don’t want to piss off Ellie, either. She’s not exactly as free a thinker as you and I,” he laughed.

I’m counting on that.

“That’s not fair. She wouldn’t know you if it wasn’t for me – she owes me a finders fee,” Tate mock pouted, sticking out her bottom lip. He pinched it between his thumb and finger.

“What’s going on with you, babydoll? Satan not giving it to you good enough?” he laughed. She tilted her head down, drawing his thumb into her mouth and sucking on it. He hissed air through his teeth. She let him go and he dragged his thumb down her chin.

“How about you stop worrying about him for tonight. I know I have,” she said in a husky voice.

Like that would even be possible.

She knew she had him. The tempation to put something over on Jameson was too great for him. She knew Ang very well, knew how to get to him. They hadn’t slept together in a long time – since August. They had quit cold turkey, and he hadn’t had a say in the matter. In fact, he’d been pretty angry about it for a while. Here was his chance to strike back. Fuck Tate, in Jameson’s bed. In Satan’s home. Much too hard to resist. She closed her eyes as his head lowered towards hers.

Please, please don’t hate me.

Author Bio

Stylo FantomeCrazy woman living in an undisclosed location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since …, forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball – I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I’m clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.

I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there’s your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair – both a curse and a blessing – and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can’t understand me.

Yeah. I think that about sums me up.

Synopsis 3

#Synopsis:

dec 10th teaser 3

Take My Hand (Take My Hand #1)

Twenty-four year old Dexter Michaels has arrived in the UK for a fresh start – leaving everything and everyone he knows behind in the states. Determined to put right some of the wrongs he’ll never be able to forgive himself for making and make his Aunt Sarah – the only person left who still believes in him – proud, he lands in London with the intention of working hard, getting his degree and keeping himself to himself. He can’t destroy anybody else that way…

His heart and his body have other ideas however when he finds himself sitting next to nineteen year old Emily Barton in his Psychology class. Moving down south to find her own New Life, Emily is shy, smart and beautiful – everything Dexter knows he should stay away from… everything he knows would be too easy for him to break.

But she makes him feel things he’d forgotten even existed. She makes him laugh, smile, care… forget. Without her trying, and without him realizing, Emily has wound her way into the one place he swore to keep locked away forever – his heart. But can she stay there when she discovers the dark past he’s so determined to keep hidden from her? Or will he destroy her too, just like he always expected?

dec 10th cover

Hold On Tight (Take My Hand #2)

A figure from Dexter’s past has uprooted all the memories he has tried so desperately to bury… to forget. The terrible events of his past have been blown wide open once again, immersing him a pool of guilt deeper than he’s even experienced before.

Dexter feels powerless. The future he foolishly allowed himself to conceive is falling apart around him and there’s nothing he can do about it. But there’s one thing he can control – one thing he’s an expert at… blocking everything out. Losing all control, Dexter copes the only way he knows how – he dives so far into the well of addiction, the only thing that matters anymore is where his next fix is coming from.

Mission accomplished – there’s no one left. He’s successfully pushed everyone away. Nobody left to care about means no more guilt, right? You can’t hurt people who aren’t there…

But has he really pushed Emily as far away as he thinks he has? She’s given up everything for him – her home, her friends… her whole life. And she doesn’t regret a single thing. But can she save him from drowning, or has he finally sunk too far?

dec 10th teaser

Lean On Me (Take My Hand #3)

Rachel Mason oozes confidence. She’s outgoing, adventurous and would chop off her right arm before caring what other people think of her or her disability.

Right?

Jared Mattheson on the other hand, is more than a little goofy and a whole lot of carefree. He’s happy living the bachelor life on his father’s credit card, takes nothing seriously and wouldn’t know difficulty if it slapped him in the face.

Right?

With Emily and Dexter away in the States, Rachel and Jared are left behind to keep each other company. They share the same sense of fun, their personalities bounce off one another perfectly and perhaps inevitably, they become best friends. But what happens when the lines of friendship start to blur? How will they cope when the sides of themselves they’ve kept hidden from the world for so long begin to show?

Their journey together may have started with fun, games and alcohol – but it seems the future has other ideas.

Turns out, even the strongest of people need someone to lean on sometimes.

Never Let Go (Take My Hand #4)

In the final book of the Take My Hand Series, Emily and Dexter are finally on course to a happy future. Arriving back in the UK with Aunt Sarah in tow, everything seems to be slotting into place. For the first time in his life, Dexter has found his purpose. Surrounded by family, friends and the woman he adores, he has at long last made peace with his demons and is determined to fight for the life he now knows he deserves.

With best friend Rachel back by her side and a resolve to work things out with her parents once and for all, Emily’s life is also on the right track. Or so she thinks…

When a tragic revelation threatens to destroy Emily’s world, it sends her spiraling down a path leading to more secrets, lies and heartache – leaving her questioning her whole life and everyone in it. To top it off, Emily almost lost one of the most important men in her life once before, is it about to happen again?
