Guest Post by Reading for Fun

Good morning everyone!  I hope you have had an amazing week and are not suffering from a candy hangover.  Today, I want to welcome the Reading for Fun blog (http://readingforfun3.blogspot.com/) as they share an awesome trilogy from the fabulous Susan Griscom.  Be sure to click the rafflecopter link at the end of the post for a chance to win some great swag!
   Celebrating the end of a trilogy is bittersweet. I love all the characters in the Whisper Cape series, but Cael and Addison own my heart and always will. Without them, I don’t think I would have become an author. At least not a published one. A Secret Fate, book three is now available.

Author: Susan Griscom
Publisher: Amber Glow Books
Genre: Adult Paranormal Romance/Suspense

October 31, 2013 is the official release date for the digital format. You can find your copy at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The print book will be available November 14, 2013.

Whisper Cape (Book 1)Publication Date: October 10, 2011A Steamy Paranormal Romance/Suspense5 Stars Phenomenal Book!!! Top Pick Review- Night Owl Reviews

A powerful woman, an extraordinary man, and a maniac who wants to destroy them. Fate has brought them together, but will it make them stronger or destroy them all in end?

Escape to a world where the impossible becomes possible and sparks ignite.

WHISPER CAPE is a town of secrets and Addison MacKenna soon becomes tangled in a web of them. Plagued with nightmares of her father’s sudden and brutal death, Addie struggles with her anguish and refuses to believe his demise was accidental.

Fighting to shake off one of those devastating early morning nightmares, Addison finds it even harder to escape from the vision of a man lying on the side of the road–a man she may have just killed. When she frantically tries to locate him, he seemingly disappears, just the beginning of strange occurrences in her life. She also cannot ignore the weird sensations in her own body. Suddenly, the impossible seems possible, but is that a blessing or a curse?

Believing that her continual and worsening nightmares are both the key to her own new abilities and the clue to her father’s death, Addie knows she will not rest until she has the answers she craves. As she strives to cope with her new remarkable talents, someone else learns of her abilities–a disgruntled maniacal psychopath with his own agenda that involves eliminating Addie. The only one who can protect her, instruct her in the use of her powers and teach her how to destroy the murderous monster is the same man who makes Addie’s heart race and her blood heat with passion. The same man she’d left for dead.

Cael Sheridan may be arrogant and mysterious but he’s also undeniably gorgeous. A member of a secret society, he is sworn to protect the woman he believes to be the daughter of his recently murdered mentor. In the process, he finds it impossible to resist her magnetic sensuality, complicating his efforts to shield and guide her as she learns to manage her newly acquired skills. At the same time, Addison has much to teach him about trust and commitment. Will fate win in the end? You be the judge.

Reflections (Whisper Cape book 2)

Publication Date: October 8, 2012

Book 2 in the Steamy Paranormal Romance/Suspense, Whisper Cape Series

What if you heard a voice whispering warnings while you coped with a frightening pregnancy?

Knowing the future has its advantages…or does it?

Can love survive the reflections and memories lost?

Welcome to Maia’s world.

Gerry has loved Maia from the very first moment he laid eyes on her and now that she’s pregnant with his child, he’s over the moon with happiness. Likewise, Maia is overjoyed about having Gerry’s baby, but when she starts seeing and hearing an old woman who warns Maia about the pregnancy, Maia starts to think she is losing her mind. But Maia’s nightmare has only just begun…

A beautiful woman, the talented lead singer in an up and coming rock band, sets her sights on Gerry determined to rekindle an old flame. But murder befalls the sleepy town of Whisper Cape once again, creating suspicion and betrayal, and a love once considered invincible, begins to crumble and fall apart.

Excerpt from Reflections:

Gerry sat up and rubbed his shoulder. “Thanks, Addie.” He followed her gaze to the place where they had last seen Cael. It pained him, but finally he said, “Addie. Maybe he can’t get back.”

“You don’t think Finn shot him, do you? Cael is strong.”

Gerry shook his head but wasn’t sure if she noticed. “No.”

“Once he got him away from here, I’m sure he used his skills,” she said. “I mean, Cael could take Finn in a fight anytime.”

“He might not be able to come back.” Gerry brushed a strand of hair out of Addie’s face.

“What? What do you mean?” She stood and Gerry got up with her. He moaned a little from the pain and stood next to her.

“I don’t think he got shot. I’m not sure exactly what happened to Cael. When the bullet hit me, I lost balance. He might have received some of my …”

“What? No!” Her face paled and she fought to take in air.

“Breathe,” he said, stroking her back as Maia walked up and stood by her other side.

“I don’t understand.” Her voice was barely a whisper. She walked to where Cael had wrestled with Finn. “What sort of memory were you sending?”

“That’s the problem.” Gerry shook his head. He didn’t want to have to tell Addie that she might never see Cael again.

A Secret Fate (Whisper Cape book 3)

Publication Date: October 31, 2013

Description:

“Well, fate was cruel, wasn’t it?”

Cael and Addison’s fate has taken an unexpected turn.

Gerry, Addie and Cael almost captured Careen’s murderer only to lose Cael in the battle—a battle that nearly cost him his life. But despite his survival, he faces a new challenge, thanks to Gerry’s handiwork: will Cael remember Addie or is their love lost with him?

Addie’s family and friends think she should keep the relationship a secret from Cael so he isn’t forced into feelings he can’t remember. Just what she needs, more secrets and on top of everything else, someone stole the crystal. How is she supposed to get over the loss of her lover, a lover she’d barely had for only a few short months and deal with the secret of the lost crystal at the same time?

Aiden wants nothing more than to help Addie overcome her grief and get over Cael. Or is that all he wants? What happens when too many people know the secret and someone slips up?

Teaser Excerpt from A Secret Fate


He lay half on top of
her, their legs tangled together on the sofa as their rapid heartbeats slowly
returned to normal. He didn’t want to move or let her go, but he’d have to. He
needed to get up and leave. How would he ever look Aiden in the eye again? What
a mess he’d gotten himself into this time.
She sighed. “That was
amazing.” Resting her head on his chest, she leaned her face to his and kissed
him, gently, softly, then closed her eyes and rested her head. They stayed that
way, silent, for a while.

About Susan
I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania, spending most of my time daydreaming or playing around in the mud. I grew out of the mud play, well, most of the time, a good soak in the mud is always fun. I still daydream often and sometimes my daydreams interrupt my daydreams. So I write to remember them. If I didn’t write, I think my mind would explode from an overload of fantasy and weirdness. To the annoyance of my friends and family, my characters sometimes become a part of my world. During my childhood, I would frequently get in trouble in school for daydreaming. Eventually, my vivid imagination paid off and I had the privilege of writing and co-directing my sixth-grade class play—a dreadful disaster, though not from my writing, of course. I’m pretty sure it was the acting.I enjoy writing about characters living in small quaint towns and tend to lean toward the unusual and edgy.My paranormal playing field delves into a different milieu, abandoning vampires and werewolves, but not discounting them. Someday I might like to write a novel about vamps and those furry creatures. But for now I like the bizarre mixed with romance. A strong hero or heroine confronted with extraordinary forces of nature, powers and capabilities gets my blood running hot as does an steamy contemporary romantic suspense.Author Links:Blog | Website | Facebook | Twitter | Goodreads | Amazon Author Page

Author: Bethany Daniel

Series: Connected #2

Published: August 2013

Genre: Contemporary Romance/NA

This is the retelling of Reconnected from Liam’s POV.

It CAN be read as a stand alone but I recommend reading Reconnected too to fully understand all characters/story.

Blurb:

Four years ago Liam Warren was on top of the world. He was a newlywed, he was discovered by Excite Entertainment and finally got to leave that small Nevada town with his new wife and high school sweet heart Katy. But when they moved to L.A, Liam got too caught up in the life. Parties, drinks, girls. All of that at the tip of his fingers and it clouded his mind, his marriage no longer was his priority and he slowly pushed Katy away.

One night, Katy comes home to their home filled with half clothed women and Hollywood’s elite and she tells Liam she is leaving if things don’t get better. He’s so wrapped up in it that he doesn’t believe her, at least not until the next morning when he comes home from filming and finds a note that tears him apart and begins his journey of finding her, and growing up.

Katy and Liam never officially divorce, and 4 years later a movie brings him to Georgia, where a tour on a college campus brings him face to face with Katy again, along with her boyfriend.

Four years apart has changed a lot of things for the both of them, but when it comes down to it, that connection is still there and Liam sets out to show Katy that their love is worth fighting for.

Today I am excited to bring you not one, but two exciting cover reveals from the fabulous R.K. Ryals. So, hold on to your seats and enjoy the view!
Cursed and
Possessed Double Cover Reveal and Giveaway!
Cursed (The Thorne Trilogy Book I)
by R.K.
Ryals
Cover by
Eden Crane Designs
 
 
Synopsis:
A grimoire. A witch. A Demon.Ellie Elizabeth Jacobs, often known as Monroe due to her fascination with
vintage attire and old movies, is an 18 year-old witch and a darned good one!
But there is also something very wrong with her. Demonic energy makes her
powers stronger, she has the ability to ward off Demons, and Lucifer wants her.Sometimes being bad is better. Or at least that’s how Luther “Thorne”
Craig feels. The hybrid Demon son of the cursed Cain and the Demon Lilith,
Luther is reluctantly sent to New Orleans, Louisiana by his brother, the hybrid
Demon ruler of the Outer Levels of Hell, to protect Monroe from Lucifer’s
searching Hellhounds.But what happens when things go wrong?In this riveting spin off from R.K. Ryals’ Redemption series, Monroe is faced
with an old grimoire, an ancient curse, and a journey to discover a family
secret that may surprise them all.
Excerpt:
“Can I see that?” NeeCee asked suddenly, and I looked up
to find her standing over me, her hand outstretched, her gaze on the grimoire.
I narrowed my eyes.
“Why?”
NeeCee sighed. “I
think I know something that may help you.”
I felt myself start to
panic and tamped it down. The only thing worse than dust (I’m a slight neat
freak) was Bernice’s gift for inadvertently abusing magic.
“I don’t know— “
“Oh for God’s
sake!” NeeCee said irritably before snatching the book out of my hand.
I tried grabbing for
it and failed.
“NeeCee …”
I warned.
She ignored me,
dancing around different glass displays, her eyes on the book. She was
naturally clumsy, but inside a store she’d practically been born into, she had
the grace of a gazelle. It worked against me.
She paused abruptly,
twisting so that her stomach was against a display of dried herbs, her index
finger moving down a page. The display between us was too thick for me to see the
parchment clearly, and I started edging toward her, my heart beating fast.
“NeeCee …” I warned again, my teeth
gritted.
She grinned. “Look! It’s a reversal spell. This
could help, you know. And it’s simple.”
She lifted a candle from a cabinet behind her and lit
it. It was black.
Crap!
I blew the wick out.
“No!” I cried. “There is no way in hell
I am letting you perform anything on me. Understand?”
Bernice frowned, her forehead creased. “You really
have that little confidence in me?”
I could hear the hurt in her voice, and I felt a pang
of sympathy. Truly I did, but I wasn’t about to let it affect my judgment.
“I have plenty of
confidence in you, NeeCee, but these are old spells. They are unpredictable. Extremelyunpredictable.”
Bernice lit the candle
again and moved it behind her, her finger trailing the page. She turned, facing
me.
“Quae mea tua sunt, tua mea sunt quid . . .” she
proceeded stubbornly, her chin raised, her eyes large and confident behind her
spectacles.
The words were Latin.
I recognized them instantly and cringed, jumping onto the display case, my blue
dress riding all the way up to my hip. At this point, I didn’t give a flip if a
customer came in right now and got an eye full of my black low-rise panties. I
just wanted the dead blasted grimoire.
“NeeCee, no!” I shouted, just as the black
candle behind her exploded, ebony wax falling onto the wooden surface around
it.
I covered my face, but
even though the blast sounded loud inside the store, there was no collateral
damage. The only outwardly disturbing sign was a small, perfect wax circle made
of six black spots on the worn wood around the scarlet glass candleholder. I
winced. Bernice froze.
“NeeCee,” I whispered.
“Yeah?” she muttered.
I stared at the ruined
workstation as the grimoire fell to the floor at Bernice’s feet. “That
wasn’t a reversal spell.”

Possessed (The Thorne Trilogy Book II)
by R.K.
Ryals
Cover by
Eden Crane Designs

Expected Release – November, 2013

 
Synopsis:
Calling a Demon forth wasn’t the wisest thing the
Ayer’s witches have ever done.  For
centuries, the Ayers have been slaves of the Demon Lilith, one Ayers witch
destined to do her will while another was sacrificed to the Hunters. But Monroe
Jacobs has changed the rules …
A witch from the Ayers’ line, Monroe’s powers have always been
connected to Demons and now she knows why. Once a slave to Lilith, she has
thrown off her blood ties to the Demon queen by calling on her son, the
hybrid-Demon, Luther. Now Monroe must discover what it means to be a witch
while fighting off demonic possession.
For Luther “Thorne” Craig, his attraction to the witch, Monroe,
isn’t just a complication, it’s a distraction. He’s always been happy with his
life, serving the denizens of Hell while living flamboyantly, but now he’s
declared war on his mother and Lilith won’t rest until she sees him dead.
Armed with her own book of shadows, Monroe is dragged into a civil
war between mother and son while Luther fights his demonic need to truly
possess her.
 
 
Excerpt:
“You should cast spells skyclad,” he murmured.
A flush worked its way
up my neck, the image of me unclothed inside a circle stark in my head. I’d
never done a spell skyclad. Even my initiation had been done fully clothed.
I glared at him.
“You’re right. You are a monster.”
He chuckled. “Be
bad for me, witch. You might find you like it.”

The events of Claudia’s party were nothing more than a distant memory as far as Kia was concerned. She was ready to resume her life as though that night had never happened. But it’s a slippery slope keeping a secret and Kia’s about to learn just how hard when she’s faced with the truth and the consequences of her decision.

Adam Chaves was no stranger to girls wanting him. He was no stranger to breaking hearts, although never intentionally.
