Excerpt:

With a blur, she flicked her wrists, and the blade met its target, allowing another smear of red to join the darkened, sticky blood pouring over her fingers and embedding itself in the cracked lines in her hands. The warrior fell, never to fight again. He hadn’t had even a chance to reciprocate. She listened for more, but nothing else echoed across the vast trunks of trees with their branches softly swaying in the breeze, stretching across the horizon like welcoming arms.

Wiping her sword on the dirty clothes covering one of the downed Unseelie she had bested, she frowned, noting their pale skin and blackened eyes. A flash of memory stumped her, and a vision of the malicious Lady Blythe echoed in her mind. The woman’s inhuman screech resonated like a phantom, chastising her as her blackened insect eyes stared her down from a time long ago.  Lady Blythe, evil Queen of the Dryads and ally to the Unseelie Queen Aveta, was long dead and only lived in a sliver of Shade’s thoughts.

“Are there any more?” Nautilus bounded from behind her, his long, dark dreadlocks swinging over his shoulders as he halted. Dylan flanked her to the right, covered in equal amounts of dirt and blood. His black hair was dusted from a struggle, and dried leaves stuck to his armor as his gleaming, steel-colored eyes scanned the horizon, eager for more-challenging foes.

“No, that’s the last of them for now,” she answered. She pulled a rag from her pack and wiped her hands as best she could. An odd, chilled feeling washed over her as she watched the rag turn colors from the gore and blood. How long ago had she been a normal teenager, struggling with grades, homework and meddling voices echoing in her head? Now… well, things were vastly different. She was a queen of an entire Faerie realm, engaged to a handsome Teleen warrior, and didn’t have any qualms about killing anyone.

To Read or Not to Read? Teasers are the Question!

More often than not, books are giving us a first glimpse at upcoming reads.  They may share a chapter or two from the next book in the series. Or, give a glimpse at a totally new project the author is working on.  My question is…do you read them?

 

What if the book you just finished is just so darn good you can’t help yourself?  It leaves you drooling for more and you just have to know.

 

Or there were just so many white-knuckle, nail biting moments that left you unfulfilled with a cliff hanger.

Do you just say, “I don’t care if the next book comes out in a year.  I plan on torturing myself by reading the teaser.  I need to know!”  Of course you end up left with more questions.  We have all done it. Then it turns into a year of hair pulling as we wait for the next book.

 

 

I for one refuse to succumb to the thrall of a teaser.  I don’t want to know what happens until I can inhale the complete book (hopefully not being left to wait for additional books to follow).  I avoid the spoiler threads and all things that might hint to what is waiting in store in the next book.  Of course, I do follow my favorite author pages trying not to scream…

 

Just one of those random thoughts today!  Make it a great one!

Cover Reveal

Well folks, seems I am two days late and lots of dollars short.  Given one simple task and I dropped the ball.  The lovely Mercy Amare new cover released on Monday and I couldn’t find my press kit.  So, many apologies, Mercy.  It is beautiful…


BLURB
I’m Charlotte York, but you can call me Char.
My life is perfect. Except for the fact that my older sister is posing naked for Playboy. And my mom wants me to be just like her. Oh, and I caught my boyfriend cheating on me. But other than that, it’s definitely perfect… Until the paparazzi publishes a picture of me smoking weed. 

Now I am being forced to move to NYC with my dad. Too bad I hate New York.
At least there is Tristan Becker. He makes NY better. But he won’t date me because he thinks my best friend is in love with me. Which is absolutely not true… Or at least I don’t think it is.

As you can see my life is just… perfect.

Char is coming October 11.

Cover Reveal: Trusting You by L.P. Dover

I trust you …

These are the three words that Melissa Ashford wishes she could say to someone; to the one person she can fully give herself to and not worry about being betrayed. Being twenty-eight years old and divorced from a cheating ex-husband, Melissa enjoys her freedom until one night she finds herself indulging in a one night stand that changes everything.

There’s something about the alluring Brett Walker that has Melissa feeling things she’s never had with any other man; feelings that not only scare her, but push her past her limits. Just when she begins to open her soul to this new love their bond is put to the test when jealousies from the past try to break them apart.

It’s not only Melissa’s trust that’s put on the line, but Brett’s as well. Will their love be strong enough to get them through the lies? Will Melissa finally be able to say those three words she’s been dying to say? I trust you …

The Heroes of Forged in Dreams and Magick
by Kat Bastion

Iain Brodie ~ No ordinary Highland laird, the towering hazel-eyed, chestnut-haired warrior exhibits a blend of twenty-first-century and thirteenth-century wisdom, wit, and charm. A strategist in politics, war, and family, he loves Isobel with unparalleled passion, fearlessly expressing the depth and strength of his emotions.

Alpha-male Iain has grown accustomed to getting what he wants, therefore her struggles greatly with the circumstances surrounding Isobel’s time travel, including the reluctant acceptance of having to share his woman with another man. His difficult transformation from overbearing to understanding, and ultimately needing to make Isobel whole, helps us fall in love with him.

Unknown Fact: Iain first appeared in the modern-day Highlands at age five wearing only the Brodie clan plaid and his mother’s brooch. He was immediately adopted by an older Highland couple with no children of their own. They celebrated the day as his only birthday, which kept his memories of early childhood vivid. Until Iain’s return back in time with Isobel, modern-day Iain visited their graves every “birthday” to pay tribute to those he’d gained and those he’d lost.

Velloc ~ The sleekly built, dark-featured, blue-tattooed Pict chieftain takes what he wants, primal need and inherent right governing his actions. However, fierce emotion and philosophical logic rule the man beneath, capturing Isobel’s heart before she has a chance to safeguard it.

Attuned to his animal nature and living in harmony with the environment, Velloc is the perfect instructor on Pict traditions. His open-mindedness enables Isobel’s quick assimilation into their culture and language. Impressed by her unrelenting determination, he grants her unusual request for warrior training. But when the unexpected time comes to let her go, his possessiveness threatens to overtake his generosity.

Unknown Fact: When Velloc reveals to Isobel the loss of his first mate, he chooses not to explain the circumstances of the tragedy: that she died during childbirth along with their first child, a son. Isobel is his second chance at love and family, a bright future for a chieftain and his tribe.

Reveal by Brina Courtney

Author:  Brina Courtney

Published:  12/16/11

Pages:  220

Genre:  YA Fantasy/Paranormal

Series:  Cryptid Tales #1

The Gist:

Shay could be the key to ending a war that humans don’t know exist. Of a race of beings that aren’t real, or are they?

Shay Tafford’s childhood has been fatherless, filled instead with memories of speaking to the dead. She is forced to hide her unique ability from those living around her. That’s why it’s been comforting to have Jeremy, a child ghost, as her confidante. But recently he’s been absent, perhaps lost as her father is. When Shay meets Hugh, the guy she’s had a crush on for weeks, and finds he can speak to ghosts too she’s just starting to find a normalcy in her life.
But as Hugh reveals the truth to Shay, about who she really is and about what it is she can do, he erases all chances she had at a normal existence. Turns out talking to ghosts is just scratching the surface of her genetically engineered gifts. Shay learns she may be part of an age old prophecy that could save the entire race of cryptids. But can she?

My Take:

I needed a book about ghosts to try and fill a category on one of my Goodreads group’s challenges and I found this book on Netgally. I was intrigued by the premise that it was about a girl that could speak to ghosts, so I took a chance.

I was very much surprised by this book.  I did not expect the twists as Shay’s abilities were uncovered.  It is so much more than just a typical ghost story.  I was a little bored with the fast developing romance, but only because I wanted to learn more about Shay and her powers, the evil Malsumis and the history around what Shay and those like her truly are.

It is a great first book in the series and makes me eager to read what comes next.  I love that Ms. Courtney found inspiration from the “Chupacabra” episode of Bones.  I am also inspired by the promises she made to herself when writing (you can check them out here http://www.brinacourtney.com/2011/10/promises-i-made.html  I especially like #4).  Capture is the second book in the Cryptid Tales series and currently available. 

Looking forward to seeing you between the pages of the next book!
