Cover Reveal Options by Abbi Glines

Two paths.
Two completely different roads.
Each one standing before me.
Each one holding a different destiny.

In life you're just supposed to choose one path.
In life you're not given the chance at choosing one specific future.

Until now.
Until me.

Why am I different? I don't know. But I'm going to see those roads and walk down each one. When it's over I'll know which one to choose because I'll know my - options.

Book Description: “No fate other than the one I choose.”

The timeless creed, and tattoo, bore by the Rousseau’s— a vampire clan with the purest bloodline of any vampire family. Out of this clandestine group came one who was different, yet the same: Ascher-a half-bloodling— half- human, half vampire.

Ascher questions the purpose for his existence and which world he truly belongs to: the human world or the vampire world. Two months from sealing to Ursula— a prearranged union to a woman he abhors — he’s at his wit’s end. He knows if he calls off the sealing, the Romanian clan will strike with deadly force, but he cannot see eternity with a cold empty shell of a woman like Ursula.

Just when he thought life was complicated enough, he meets Shauna— a beautiful, bi-racial human Wiccan — and immediately develops an unshakable attraction to her. She makes him feel alive and vital despite his origins and Ascher makes a decision that turns his immortal world upside down.

Blood of the Demon (Demons of Infernum #1) by Rosalie Lario Book Review


Keegan lives to exact revenge on the evil demon who sired and abused him. When his father devises a plan to bring on the apocalypse, he and his three half-brothers, interdimensional bounty hunters for the Elden Council, are charged with capturing and delivering their father for punishment.Art gallery owner Brynn Meyers has no idea that her ability to read memories embedded in objects and drain people of their life force means she has demon ancestry. Unfortunately for Brynn, she's also the key to raising an ancient zombie army, which puts her on every demon's Most Wanted List.And no one wants her more than Keegan's father.Keegan must protect Brynn from his father by any means necessary, but he'll have to learn to harness the other half of his genetics-the far deadlier, uncontrollable half-when he starts to fall for the one woman standing between him and the vengeance he so desperately seeks. The one woman he'll never be able to resist.


I want to give a huge THANK YOU to Jessica at Entangled for allowing me to read BOTD. Man oh man from the very beginning I could not put this book down. Who would not want to read about four gorgeous brothers. Can you say H-E-L-L-O! So enough of my crazy rantings and on to the review.

Keegan is one of four brothers. He is very protective of his brothers and now he is given the duty to protect Brynn. Brynn is a special girl who can get an objects history by touching it. She is also the key to the Apocalypse. See she can raise an ancient zombie army and destroy the world. Keegan will stop at nothing to save her but while saving her he finds himself in a peculiar situation. See has has fallen for her and he does not need that right now.

Keegan's father has different plans for his son and when his boys have to hunt him down and turn him in all hell hits the fan. Keegan knows that his father wants Brynn more than anything in his life but Keegan is determined to protect her and keep her away from his crazy father. Keegan will have to choose between revenge or love. Which will he choose? Will he be able to protect Brynn from danger? Will Brynn melt his heart with her love? My god I could go on but I do not want to spoil it for the readers. I am placing this book on the reading radar for those of you who love bad men trying to do good.

Formally trained as a corporate and real estate lawyer, I practiced law for 5 years before finally admitting to myself that negotiating contracts wasn’t nearly as fun as dreaming up stories. As an avid reader of romances and supernatural stories, I knew I wanted to write urban fantasy and paranormal romance. Tales of vampires, demons, and other supernatural beings ensued.

I’m currently working on the Demons of Infernum series, a series of paranormal romance novels featuring four sexy half-demon brothers and their reluctant heroines.

When not writing, I enjoy spending time with my husband and son in our home state of Florida, as well as searching out things that go bump in the night. I still haven’t found any, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

If I ever do find evidence of the supernatural, it remains to be seen whether I’ll jump around in excitement, or run screaming in terror (but I’m betting on the latter)!

If I Were You (Inside Out Trilogy #1) by Lisa Renee Jones Book Review

Fifty Shades of Grey meets Basic Instinct

Book 1: If I Were You
Book 2: Being Me
Book 3: Revealing Us


How it began…

One day I was a high school teacher on summer break, leading a relatively uneventful but happy life. Or so I told myself. Later, I’d question that, as I would question pretty much everything I knew about me, my relationships, and my desires. It all began when my neighbor thrust a key to a storage unit at me. She’d bought it to make extra money after watching some storage auction show. Now she was on her way to the airport to elope with a man she barely knew, and she needed me to clear out the unit before the lease expires.

Soon, I was standing inside a small room that held the intimate details of another woman’s life, feeling uncomfortable, as if I was invading her privacy. Why had she let these items so neatly packed, possessions that she clearly cared about deeply, be lost at an auction? Driven to find out by some unnamed force, I began to dig, to discover this woman’s life, and yes, read her journals—-dark, erotic journals that I had no business reading. Once I started, I couldn’t stop. I read on obsessively, living out fantasies through her words that I’d never dare experience on my own, compelled by the three men in her life, none of whom had names. I read onward until the last terrifying dark entry left me certain that something had happened to this woman. I had to find her and be sure she was okay.
Before long, I was taking her job for the summer at the art gallery, living her life, and she was nowhere to be found. I was becoming someone I didn’t know. I was becoming her.

The dark, passion it becomes…

Now, I am working at a prestigious gallery, where I have always dreamed of being, and I’ve been delivered to the doorstep of several men, all of which I envision as one I’ve read about in the journal. But there is one man that will call to me, that will awaken me in ways I never believed possible. That man is the ruggedly sexy artist, Chris Merit, who wants to paint me. He is rich and famous, and dark in ways I shouldn’t find intriguing, but I do. I so do. I don’t understand why his dark side appeals to me, but the attraction between us is rich with velvety promises of satisfaction. Chris is dark, and so are his desires, but I cannot turn away. He is damaged beneath his confident good looks and need for control, and in some way, I feel he needs me. I need him.

All I know for certain is that he knows me like I don’t even know me, and he says I know him. Still, I keep asking myself — do I know him? Did he know her, the journal writer, and where is she? And why doesn’t it seem to matter anymore? There is just him and me, and the burn for more.





OH MY FLIPPING GOD!!!!!!!!!! THIS BOOK IS SO MUCH MORE THAN FIFTY SHADES AND BASIC INSTINCT. Man where to begin with this review. I have read a lot of erotica and adult books lately but I have to say That Lisa has added some things to her story that stands out among the rest. I did not feel like I reading about Fifty and I sure as hell did not thing basic instincts because this story really has so many dimensions to it I could not get my head wrapped around it. First the characters are so different from any I have read about. I know a lot of people have said no one can fall in love that fast, well to them I say they may not but other people do and it is reality.

I have done some research into the BDSM world and I have talked to people who are in it and I can see the pull towards it and I can see how people fall in love so fast because it is like a drug and the adrenaline rush you get from it is like no other. To them it is like para gliding or bungee jumping the adrenaline brings you places you have never been before and before you realize it you are hooked and can't remember how it has happened. So now that I have bored you with a little back ground I will get to the real deal and this the story.

Sara is a school teacher that is on summer vacation. She is looking forward to spending some quality time reading and enjoying her summer of tutoring students. One night her neighbor is over watching TV and enjoying Sara's company when her boyfriend calls her to go over to his house. The neighbor leaves and forgets her journal and Sara being curious reads it and is shocked to read what is in it. The next day the neighbor comes back to make sure she has not lost the journal and Sara is embarrassed because she read the journal.

Sara will soon learn that their are lots of lies and secrets shrouded in the disappearance of Rebecca. As she reads the journals and delves deeper into the life Rebecca had she will find out Rebecca was a tortured soul and did things in the name of love. She allowed her heart to rule instead of her mind and her instincts. She should have followed her instincts because some things are better left alone. Will Sara follow the same path as Rebecca or will she carve her own path? Will she be forced to face her own demons? Will Sara's past come back to haunt her? Will she be caught up in a love triangle?

Shauna wavered dizzily as her sister’s words resounded in her head. She’d endured his ridicule and constant put downs for most of her teenage life. She’d begged her mother to move in with her when she left, but she decided to go back with him. Shauna thought back to the day she left—the last time he’d ever lay a hand on her. Unable to control the rage, she shook violently.

“Shauna!” Katy shouted. “Are you okay? Do I need to call Ascher?”

Shauna said nothing as she stood in silent shock, the repressed memories flooding her. Suddenly, she saw herself lying in the floor, her father standing above her cursing and screaming. “Son-of-a-bitch!”

The window flew open.

“Ascher!” Katy screamed, as she grabbed hold of her sister’s arm in an attempt to comfort her.

The floor shook beneath their feet and the walls vibrated with her ire. The memories washed over her, bringing the fury and wiping her mind clear of everything else.

The picture of Andreas Rousseau fell from the wall as the room continued to quake with her anger. A crystal vase of red roses flew across the room, shattering into glass powder. Shauna released an ear-piercing scream, as a crash of thunder boomed outside.

“Shauna?” Katy gasped as she now cowered in the far corner of the room.

Talking about their childhood really chafed Shauna. She knew that she’d have to bring closure to it for her sanity, but all she could think about when she thought of Gregory McCutchin was blood, destruction and fire. She wanted him to hurt as much as they did and to pay for what he’d done.

Goddesses as her witness, she’d make him suffer. “He will pay for what he’s done.” Her voice was shrill, menacing and multi-layered—like the voice of a demon in a horror movie. “Goddesses be my witness, he will pay with his life!”

Ascher yelled, “Shauna,” as he furiously attempted opening the locked door.

“Katherine, dearest, are you okay? Can you get to the door?”

“No, I’m afraid to move!” Katy replied.

“Stay out of here,” Shauna ranted, her mind hurling the desk at the door.

“She’s raging,” Katy shrieked. “It’s really bad!”

Shauna’s determined mind was insistent on keeping them out. She pointed towards the heavy wooded bureau, sending it flying across the room, wedging it on top of the desk and against the door.

“Gabe!” Katy called out with a freaked out look on her face and fear in her voice. “Oh God, Shauna. No.”

The bed levitated above the ground, hovering and twisting in the air before she made it zip out through the glass balcony doors.

Dizzy and dazed, Shauna’s body slumped, falling to her knees.

“Shauna!” Katy screamed again.

Closing her eyes, her head pounded with pain as Shauna furiously chanted, asking for guidance and strength to control her rage.

Frost (The Frost Chronicles #1) by Kate Avery Ellison Blog Tour Stop

In the icy, monster-plagued world of the Frost, one wrong move and a person could end up dead—and Lia Weaver knows this better than anyone. After monsters kill her parents, she must keep the family farm running despite the freezing cold and threat of monster attacks or risk losing her siblings to reassignment by the village Elders. With dangers on all sides and failure just one wrong step away, she can’t afford to let her emotions lead her astray. So when her sister finds a fugitive bleeding to death in the forest—a young stranger named Gabe—Lia surprises herself and does the unthinkable.

She saves his life.

Giving shelter to the fugitive could get her in trouble. The Elders have always described the advanced society of people beyond the Frost, the “Farthers,” as ruthless and cruel. But Lia is startled to find that Gabe is empathetic and intelligent…and handsome. She might even be falling in love with him.

But time is running out. The monsters from the forest circle the farm at night. The village leader is starting to ask questions. Farther soldiers are searching for Gabe. Lia must locate a secret organization called the Thorns to help Gabe escape to safety, but every move she makes puts her in more danger.

Is compassion—and love—worth the risk?


I had the privileged of being a part of the cover reveal from AToMR Tours for Frost. So when I knew Frost was going on tour I jumped at the chance to be on it. When I read the blurb I was excited to be introduced to a new world.Sometimes we bloggers tend to stay with the same genre but I said hey this good.

Her parents bought the farm and raised the kids on it so when they were murdered Lia decided they would remain on the farm just like their parents wanted. Her parents always warned her and her siblings of the danger that lied in Frost the forest where the monsters are at night. So when her parents died Lia took over the responsibility of raising her brother and sister.

One day her sister is outside when she finds a Father. A Father is a person from across the river and they are taught from an early age not to talk to them or trust them because they are dangerous. But when her sister comes home with an injured one Lia's mother mode kicks in and she nurses him back to health.

Cover Reveal For The Unloved by Jennifer Snyder

Sometimes the love our heart needs to heal can be found in the familiar eyes of a childhood friend...

Julie Porter learned the hard way that trust is something which must be earned and not something to be given out lightly, those who say they love you are those who hold the power to hurt you most, and best friends can help you survive anything—until they move away.

Nick Owen knows a thing or two about a hard life. At a young age Nick learned how to take a hit and to make lemonade out of the lemons life tossed his way. Returning home after nearly two years of being away, all Nick cares about now is protecting his mom from the abusive hands of his father and catching up with his best friend—the girl who lived across the street, the girl he can’t seem to stop thinking about.

Finally reunited after two years apart, Nick and Julie are about to learn that age does nothing to protect you from life’s trials and tribulations, heartache and loss, but maybe together they’ll find a way to survive.

(Mature Young Adult, contains violence, language, and sexual situations.)

L’EveiL .. ☼




Hey everyone, I'm Kayleigh from K-Books and I am here with a task from the Gods... to advocate for the awesome Aiden St Delphi from Jennifer L Armentrout's phenomenal Covenant series!
Aiden is the perfect lead male character in the Covenant series. I'm going to convince you why you need to vote TEAMAIDEN! After all he is the world's best Pure Blood!!
Besides you wouldn't want to upset the Gods.... WOULD YOU?
*Please note there may be some spoilers from the Covenant series if you haven't read Daimon, Half-Blood and Pure please read on with caution. Any major spoilers will be highlighted before hand*

If you've read the Covenant series you won't need much persuading from me to vote for Aiden. He can do that all on his own. The one word to describe him and his personality is: PERFECT!It's the truth he is just perfect! In every way!
- Aiden is one of the strongest characters you will ever read about. He is fiercely protective and always out to protect the ones he loves.
"I have to. I told you before I'd never let anything happen to you. I meant it."


- Aiden will always do what is right even if it means sacrificing himself.

"I kissed her like I was never going to see her again, because in a way, I wasn’t. Not this way, and as much as that killed me, I knew the difference between what felt right.

And what was actually right."


- Aiden always sees the best in everyone.


"She was so incredibly strong and I couldn't fathom how she didn't know that."


- Aiden always fights for what he believes in. No matter how dangerous it might be.

"If the Gods want a war they'll have one."


- Aiden is super romantic and increidbly swoon worthy. He can easily make any girl's insides just melt!


“Ever since I’ve met you, I’ve wanted to break every rule. You’ll become the center of someone’s world one day. And he’ll be the luckiest son of a bitch on this earth.”



Aiden is tall, dark and drop dead gorgeous. He has the most intense storm coloured eyes that turn to shades of silver when he feels strong emotions.

Yes girls, it's okay to swoon!! He IS dreamy and drop dead gorgeous! Totally swoon worthy!!


As a Pure Blood Aiden can control the element Fire. Yes, this boy is super HOT! In more ways than one. So watch out for Aiden, he may just burn you up ;)

Aiden is a wicked kick-ass fighter who is super fast and super strong. He has dedicated his life to fighting Daimons and has the skills to excel at it. Yes not only is he fiercely protective he has all the skills to save your life in the case of a Daimon attack. This is one guy every girl wants!!

Acceptance By Meaka Kyel A Watchers, Keepers Short Prequel

It's been six months since Cal Gains saved Taylar Wennings from a lamia and discovered the woman has the supernatural gift of tracking whatever she focuses on. Cal hunts monsters and Taylar now falls into that category. Though he's promised not to kill her until they know what she is, he does enlist the help of a fellow hunter. Is killing her an option after all they've been through together? Will he realize what he feels for her before it's too late?

Acceptance is a short prequel to Meaka Kyel's 'Watchers, Keepers' series which releases later in 2012.

Blurb for Watchers, Keepers:
For seven years now, life for Taylar Wennings and Cal Gains has been simple. Track the monsters and kill them. The fact that Taylar is a freak herself and can track anything she concentrates on is almost forgotten. That is, until Devin, a man with unusual talents himself, enters their lives. Warned that the end of life as they know it is near, Taylar and Cal step up in an attempt to help track down other freaks like Taylar; freaks who, after being hunted because of their differences, will need much convincing to join their cause.
Now that she knows more about what she is and that she isn't the only one of her kind, Taylar can finally relax... or can she? As word spreads among the hunter community, she quickly starts to make the top of everyone's hit list. If the stresses of the job and the frequent attempts on her life aren't enough, she now has to deal with Devin. Cocky, rude, and out of this world, the man who calls himself a Watcher has her skin tingling in more ways than one. Where Cal makes her feel warm and safe, Devin makes her hot and wild.
Will the three of them be able to track down those they seek? Is there truly a hope in their daunting task to stop the end of the world?

Acceptance is available for free on Smashwords https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/204744

Preservation by Rachael Wade Free on Amazon 07/19/2012 and 07/20/2012


Fear is sabotage’s sweetest weapon.

Kate has no time for meaningless romantic charades, and definitely no time for hot college professors who are full of themselves and smitten with her. Constantly battling eviction notices, tuition she can’t afford, and a sick, dependent mother, the last thing she needs is to be distracted with someone else’s complicated baggage.

When she stumbles into Ryan Campbell’s creative writing class, he is only “Mr. Campbell” to her, until Ryan finds himself captivated by her writing and she is forced to face their mutual attraction. His cocky know-it-all syndrome is enough to send her running in the other direction, and his posse of female admirers and playboy reputation are enough to squander any odds in her favor.

But underneath Ryan’s abrasive facade is something to behold, and she can’t stay away for long. Ryan and Kate must decide who they’re willing to become and fight against their former selves if they want to make things work. That’s if academia, vicious vixens, old skeletons, and their own mastery at self-destruction don’t pummel their efforts first.

Rachael Wade is the Amazon #1 bestselling author of the paranormal romance series, The Resistance Trilogy, and the contemporary romance, Preservation. She is a member of the Romance Writers of America and her work has been published in The Storyteller, A Hudson View International Poetry Digest, and Amulet Poetry. When she's not writing, she's busy learning French, watching too many movies, and learning how to protect wildlife and stop animal cruelty. The first title in her post-apocalyptic sci-fi romance series, The Keepers Trilogy, is set for release winter of 2012.
