My hands fisted in the pockets of my trousers as I watched Lizzie Danton walking down the drive. Fuck. Damn that fucking conscience. I didn’t need it, didn’t fucking want it. I wanted to turn my back, but I could hear Brianna and Fenella, even Finnegan, in my head. “Fucking hell.”
     Fenella was just entering the library as I was leaving it. She was giving me her stink eye, that frosty look that condemned without her needing to speak a word. What the hell did she want? I let the woman sleep here, fed her, and clothed her. It was the clothes, or lack of them, that stirred something left well enough alone. “Our guest is walking home.”
     “I saw.”
     “I think she’s coming down with a cold.”      “Fucking walking in the rain will do that.”
     “Not her fault the car broke down.” She narrowed her eyes at me before she added, “And it’s not her fault she’s kin to Norah Calhoun. Remember, she’s kin to Brianna too.”
      I didn’t pay my staff to lecture me. They weren’t staff; they were family, but I ignored that. I was halfway down the hall when Fenella called after me, “She wants to paint your home.”
     That stopped me, my head swiveling to her. “She said that?”
     “Yes. Said you could Google her to see her portfolio and that she would gift you the painting.”      I didn’t need to Google her. I was familiar with her work. But after my interrogation last night, why the hell would she offer that? “Why?”
     “Because the sight of the castle from the lane took her breath away, her words.”
     It was the view from the lane that sold me on this place; more specifically the feeling of peace it evoked, a foreign, but not unpleasant feeling. Fucking hell.
     There were a few broken branches blocking the drive. By the time I got the Range Rover out of the garage, it had been about an hour since Miss Danton left. Halfway back to the village, I saw the body on the boulder. My chest grew tight thinking harm had come to her; the unwanted sensation annoyed the hell out of me. Pulling over, I climbed out to hear Lizzie Danton talking to herself. She had a bizarre habit of talking to things, like those cows and Brianna’s ghost. Her words that day had lingered because despite the shit she’d seen, she still had it in her to paint fucking sprites…to try for happy. I couldn’t decide if she was the most well adjusted person of my acquaintance or the craziest. I wondered if she’d spent any time in a mental facility.
     I couldn’t make out what she was saying, didn’t really care. My goal was to get her ass back to the cottage. That would ease the nagging from my fucking conscience. I stepped closer, to peer down at her, her eyes went wide then she screamed. She jumped off the boulder like it was on fire.
     “What the hell! Didn’t you ever learn not to sneak up on someone resting on a rock?”
     I ignored that ridiculous question. She was pale and there were dark circles under her eyes. “You don’t look so good.”
     “Nice. Scare the shit out of me and then insult me. Seriously, charm school was completely lost on you.”
     She had the oddest way of communicating. More surprising was the urge to grin at her nonsense. “I’ll give you a ride to the cottage.”
     “No, thank you. I wouldn’t want you thinking I was after your car, or your house and heaven forbid you. I’ll walk.” She started walking away but stopped and turned back. “And why assume I was like my mother? You knew Aunt Brianna, but you interrogated me like I was after something. Never mind. I don’t care what you think.”
     She did care. I saw how deeply it cut her to be compared to her mother. Another unfamiliar sensation curled in my gut. Guilt. I shook it off. “You can barely stand.”
     Temper burned behind her eyes, but she acquiesced. “Fine.”
     She didn’t wait for me and walked to the car in much the way a child in temper might do. She yanked open the door and dropped into the seat. I climbed in, felt her eyes on me, but when I looked over her focus was out the window.
     “Why are the villagers freaked out by you?” She turned in her seat to face me. “They think you’re a werewolf.”
     I’d heard that rumor. Was actually rather fond of that one. “Maybe I am.”
     I glanced over at her and she was contemplating the real possibility that I was a werewolf. Damn, if I didn’t want to grin.
     “I don’t think so, but I’ll be sure to stay inside on the full moon.”
L.A. Fiore is the author of several books including Beautifully Damaged, Collecting the Pieces and His Light in the Dark. Her favorite movie is Star Wars, a love her son shares. They hope to build their own Millennium Falcon one day. She would like to meet the Winchester Boys to thank them for enlightening her on the versatility of salt as not just a food enhancer, but as protection from supernatural threats. And she thinks it would be interesting to be a zombie, to get an idea of what life is like as a brain-addicted fiend so she can be their voice to tell their side of the story. She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and kids, their two spoiled cats and their awesome dog.

Vampire. Orphan. Beaten beyond recognition.

[Release Blitz, Giveaway & Book Review] Protector's Claim by Airicka Phoenix

Title: Protector’s Claim
Author: Airicka Phoenix
Genre: Dark Romance

Blurb:
Gabrielle Thornton
I made a mistake.
I allowed myself to be born. I allowed myself access into a life that wasn’t mine, and for that, I had willingly submitted my body and soul to a man whose sadistic pleasures knew no bound, a man who relished in my pain as much as he craved my flesh.
A monster I would do anything to escape.
But what if I could make it stop? What if the cost of freedom was a single night in a stranger’s arms? What if one final sin was all I needed to commit to find peace?
 Kieran Kincaid
I had always known of the sickness that lived inside my father, the demons who controlled the man. His death was a blessing to every innocent he’d destroyed with his dark hunger.
Yet, despite his demise becoming my curse, a shackle trapping me in his twisted secrets, it lured me to it, too. It promised me the thing I coveted above all else. It seduced me deeper into the world I wish I knew nothing of, but there was no turning back, not even if by accepting, by taking what didn’t belong to me made me a monster like him.
Gabby would finally be mine.

BY LAURA LEE








Having read Blood Script by Airicka Phoenix, I was super stoked to dive into this one. I loved Blood Script!!! 

I really enjoyed the story line. I can totally get into the… 
Black sheep of the uber rich family who has been treated like crap her whole life and what she does to survive type of story. The hidden secrets by family members. Gabriel has been a loner her whole life. Not by her choosing though. It’s tough seeing your brother and sister in the spotlight all the time. Yet you sit in the shadows and act like the little mouse in the corner. Because that is what you know how to do. You don’t get to be anyone else but the child who came along after your brother and sister. 

Kieran was a man I could see myself with. The patience he had and the alpha coming out when he stood up for people he truly believed in. Could he find himself falling for the wrong girl though? 

Diving into this one, I had a couple times where I had to scratch my head and wonder…WTRH??? (Would this really happen?) Then I would go back and reread parts. At times, it just seemed like the story didn’t flow or something. To me this story took too many turns to keep up. Scenes that were what seemed like they were tossed in to make it ‘darker’.

American King, the stunning conclusion to The New Camelot Trilogy by Sierra Simone is LIVE!!

American-King-PRINT-FOR-WEB.jpg
They say that every tragic hero has a fatal flaw, a secret sin, a tiny stitch sewn into his future since birth.  And here I am.  My sins are no longer secret. My flaws have never been more fatal.  And I’ve never been closer to tragedy than I am now.
I am a man who loves, a man whose love demands much in return.  I am a king, a king who was foolish enough to build a kingdom on the bones of the past. I am a husband and a lover and a soldier and a father and a president.
And I will survive this.
Long live the king.

5 Crown Worthy Stars!

Please do not attempt to read this book until you have read the first 2 books in this trilogy. American Queen (book 1) and American Prince (book 2) need to be read in order to fully enjoy/understand American King (book 3).



With that being said, do not stop and collect your $200.00 at GO, dive right into this amazing conclusion and enjoy the ride! What a heck of a ride it is!!



Right off in Chapter 1, we are reminded:



“The most important part of wearing a crown and using a sword is knowing when to set them down.” 



This story, gah…. The emotional journey we are taken on. At times, I found myself having to set my kindle down and take a deep breath… cleansing breath… finding it was the only way I could continue. 



It was like a barometric pressure that made my bones and teeth ache when I tried to resist it. 



Patroclus and Achilles are up against each other in a race whereas only one can come out as the winner. 



When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I set aside my childish ways. For now we see through a glass, darkly: but then we shall see face to face. 



So now it’s man against man. Stories get unfolded and we learn the truth of what has happened many, many years ago. Why our ancestors hid so many things from us… Will these stories that have now been unlocked also be the ones who cause Ash, Embry and Greer to separate? Who will come out on top? 



What a great emotional journey spanning over many, many years have we gone through with this trio. An EPIC conclusion to an awesome tale. Hats off to this fantastic author who spun a web so detailed that each and every page, each and every word needs to be ingested with their own thought. Absolutely LOVED it!!!

"Once upon a time, there were two warriors who loved the same woman as much as they loved each other. And everything that happened afterwards led inevitably to tragedy.”

The ancient , Arthurian tale may have faded on the onion pages , but it gains immortality again on Sierra's Watch. Her romantic heart imbues fresh, and must I mention kinky, life into the legend.
You will feel the monarchical grandeur, sift through smoke and scars and crave at the Three Cornered Heart , that is the foundation of New Camelot.
The King himself , Maxen Ashley Colchester, is larger than life , his control and sovereignty absolute and it's an honour to kneel for him, beside him, in between his legs. He has constitution of a natural Leader, his soul brave as a soldier and his Heart as big as the mountains .
Protector. Provider. Prevailer
Ever since he pulled the Sword from the rock in the fair,he is The Chosen One. His life filled with of violent turmoil and incessant burden .
But God never gives us more than we can bear . Ashley has wider shoulders and solid mettle than mere mortals

“The most important part of wearing a crown and using a sword is knowing when to set them down.”

description

There's Greer . Swan Graceful , Regal in demeanour and Natural submissive to her King. Her unquestioned Loyalty and love makes her the ultimate Guinevere . She's the perfect woman created to embrace the complexed relationship. Her reserved Beauty and Resilient Elegance making her a prized Diva and both Ash & Embry feel honoured to gain audience in her heart.

"No one is beautiful like Greer, no one else has that same combination of regal poise and secret knowledge and fragility and joy. Electric and otherworldly woman"

description


Then there's Embry Moore. The Youth Icon. The petulant , stubborn , rebel of a Prince. Ash's   Little Prince . At the receiving end of abundant love and uninhibited adoration. His soul belongs to Ash, his Heart to Greer. How divine must it  be ,to be love embraced so envelopingly!!

"what happens between the three of us is unspoken, navigated spontaneously and in the moment, but there are always certain roles we magnetize to. Greer, the compliant. Ash, the master. Me, the mood-ring of a lover, shifting and changing depending on the day, the hour, the minute.three of us are thoughtless, reflexive beasts, joined so elementally that there’s no separating us. We are one, we are one, and my body burns and sings with the truth".

description

The peripheral characters lend balance and support throughout. Merlin is by far most intriguing , he's the actual narrator and Foreteller. Carrying enough burden for 7 lives, he is the moral compass of the story. Appearing at crucial junctures, he never assumes control but is always in control. The time follows him , he's that immortal !!
The story is Beyond Expectations Brilliant. The Chalice of Emotions, full to the brim, runneth over !!
I went through a myriad of feels, from frustrations , to anger, to Arousal to love to heartbreak, to betrayal and landed up numb. Because reading the book will steal all your breaths and tears . And then some !
Couple of times , actually more , my heart just stopped. No heart beat, no life, just silent stillness. I had to step away periodically to catch my breath and let the oversurge of sentiments just seep in before I poured more. My heart and soul both are so saturated with immense love .
Sierra writes with such Literary Expertise, that words of  passions and affections touch you physically. You can feel the goosebumping tenderness, the worshipping Love and ultimate surrender  of Devotion , on your skin, in your body, in your heart and in your soul !!!
The words just jump off the pages and nestle in your subconscious, you forget you're reading a story, instead you start living it and breathing it. You can feel the cold wet soil of Carpathia on your knees, or broken shards of glass on your finger, or chilling calm of a fog engulfed lake. 
You will feel it all
You will see it all
You will sense it all
because you, like me are IN THE STORY
That's how Effectual Sierra's writing is !! 
It shall be written in the scars of our hearts that Maxen Ashley Colchester</b> is a Giant among men , Divine Love among impudent lovers and Majestic Arthur among subjects
When he says kneel , we kneel
When he asks for devotion and Obedience ,  we say........

 "Yes Sir, I promise"


Thank you Sierra for your gift of writing, narrating and casting a spell on us with your timeless words.

[Cover Reveal] Crank by Adriana Locke




Title: Crank
Series: The Gibson Boys #1
Author: Adriana Locke
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Kari March
Release Date: November 10, 2017



Blurb


This is one mistake Sienna Landry can’t buy her way out of.

As Walker Gibson looks at her, then at the damage to his precious truck (that she may or may not have accidentally inflicted), she knows she’s in trouble. It’s not the busted headlight and dented grill that’s sunk her though. It’s the downright sinful man in front of her that’s the problem.

The small town mechanic is broody. Rough. Smells like engine grease and gasoline and Sienna isn’t sure why that’s so sexy, but it is. It so is. She’s ready to peel off her panties at the drop of his wrench.

He wants her too. She can feel it when he brushes against her. Experience it as he presses her against the wall of the shop. It’s thinly veiled in his deep, brown eyes when he looks at her like she’s everything he’s ever wanted. So why won’t he give in?

The damage to Walker’s truck is the first of many mistakes between the two of them, ending with truths that rock Sienna’s world. Nothing can fix her broken heart except the love of a man that won’t, maybe even can’t, love her back.

Crank is a standalone romance in a new small town, blue-collar series from USA Today bestselling author Adriana Locke. Join readers everywhere as they fall in love with the delicious Gibson Boys.
