COVER REVEAL! RENDEZVOUS by ARIE LANE

Title: Rendezvous
Author: Arie Lane
Release Date: April 8th 2015
Cover Designed by: Christina Badder of CBB Productions
 
 
Synopsis228
***WARNING***
This book is intended for 18+ due to strong language, violent scenarios, and sexual content.
This book is the completion to the book Tryst. It is NOT a standalone, and it DOES NOT end in a cliffhanger.
After having the love of his life walk away, Tristan is left with only one option, to find her and bring her home. He finds the help he needs in locating her from a most unexpected source. But no matter how much he wants her by his side, he knows she will never agree, so long as Darla is out there looking to destroy her.
Bentley has made some hard decisions in her life, but none harder than walking away from the one person she’s come to love more than life itself. She knows Darla will never stop until one of them is dead. Having Tristan by her side just leaves him at risk, and gives Darla an extra piece of leverage to torment her with.
If you love someone, set them free. If they come back they’re yours; if they don’t they never were.
Richard Bach
What happens when you just can’t let go? When you know without a doubt they belong with you, but will never come back?

Skylar, Mason, and the other descendants embark a deadly quest
to the underworld to confront the evil Hades, who has been plotting to kill off
the descendants of all the gods. On this journey, they soon discover that
the ancient gods are not dead as once believed but are held captive in a secret
location. In order to save the world from destruction at the hands of
Hephaestus, the descendants must set out on a crusade to rescue the
gods. In the process, Skylar learns more about her bloodline and her
powers, but there is also a heavy price to pay. The darkest forces known to man
are about to return to reclaim their stolen kingdom.
 
 
 
 
Seeing nothing but darkness through door one heightened my
awareness, and the mist that slowly crept out like thin layer of clouds,
spreading and covering our feet, brought another level of fright. The ground
started to shake, then a sound like thunder boomed, getting louder…louder…until
it sounded more like a stampede.
My imagination got the best of me as I
envision buffaloes charging for us. Roaring sounds burst in the air when a
dozen of the Cerberuses tried to charge through at once. I would have preferred
the buffaloes, but instead, we got Hades’s guard dogs.
Their glowing red eyes were what I saw
first, then their vampire like teeth, and last three heads to a body. With
serpent’s heads on the tips of their tales and lion like claws, they looked
like they could rip us to shreds as they dashed for us as if we were a gourmet
meal.
“Cerberus. I should have guessed.” Zara
quaked, standing next to Tara. Extending both of their arms up, they were
creating a shied. Blazing light engulfed us.

 

“You should have guessed sooner, but I
don’t think it would have mattered.” Nick’s eyes glowed, ready to fight. “Here
puppy, puppy. Let’s play.”
 
 
International Bestselling Author Mary Ting/M. Clarke resides in
Southern California with her husband and two children. She enjoys oil painting
and making jewelry. Writing her first novel, Crossroads Saga, happened by
chance. It was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother, and
inspired by a dream she once had as a young girl. When she started reading new
adult novels, she fell in love with the genre. It was the reason she had to
write one-Something Great. Why the pen name, M Clarke? She tours with Magic
Johnson Foundation to promote literacy and her children’s chapter book-No
Bullies Allowed.

Review

Vought’s debut novel is endearing, witty, and fun! The romance gently blossoms into a beautiful love story, and the healing process for both the hero and heroine is quite inspiring. Second chances and learning to love again is the journey here, and one in which I enjoyed the passage.

Release Day Blitz! The Tempting of Thomas Carrick by Stephanie Laurens

TTOTC_RDbanner

TTOTC cover

SYNOPSIS

Thomas Carrick is determined to make his own life in the bustling port city of Glasgow, far from the demands of the Carrick clan, eventually with an appropriate wife on his arm. But disturbing events on his family’s estate force Thomas to return to the Scottish countryside—where he is forced to ask for help from the last woman he wants to face. Thomas has never forgotten Lucilla Cynster and the connection that seethes between them, but to marry Lucilla would mean embracing a life he’s adamant is not for him.

Strong-willed and passionate, Lucilla knows Thomas is hers—her fated lover, husband, protector, mate. He is the only man for her, just as she is his one true love. How can he ignore a bond stronger than reason and choose a different path? She’s determined to fight for their future, and while she cannot command him, she has enticements of her own to wield when it comes to tempting Thomas Carrick.

EXCERPT

He knew they had to stop, to cease and desist before he lost all hope of ever stepping back from her. Of ever letting her go.
But her hand remained on his cheek, her touch scalding in a way that had nothing to do with heat, effortlessly holding him captive. Holding his senses, snaring them in a net of want from which he couldn’t break free.
His senses and his mind were literally reeling.
She seemed to know, to realize.
But instead of comprehending the danger, pulling back, and letting him go, she reached—with her lips, with her body, with the gentle pressure of her hand on his cheek.
A sudden clattering clang of hooves on cobbles snapped them both free; on a mutual gasp, both pulled back from the kiss.
The sharp clatter was followed by shouts and calls.
For one instant, they remained locked together, gazing into each other’s eyes. Both of them were breathing rapidly. His pulse thudded in his ears.
Then the calls rising from below hauled them both fully back to the here and now.
They stepped apart. Side by side, they moved to the window.
That end of the disused wing overlooked the stable yard. On the cobbles below, they saw Nigel and Nolan, still mounted, their horses dancing, infected by the brothers’ transparently ebullient spirits.
Nigel had called for the stablemen—that had been the summons Thomas and Lucilla had heard—but Sean, Mitch, and Fred were taking their time.
Thomas watched as the stablemen slowly ambled across the yard and—it seemed grudgingly—held Nigel’s and Nolan’s horses. Apparently oblivious to the almost sullen disapprobation radiating from their clansmen, the brothers continued exchanging comments with each other as they dismounted, then haphazardly flung their reins toward the stablemen and started toward the house.
There were no greetings exchanged between the stablemen and the young masters of the house. As far as Thomas could see, there hadn’t even been any true acknowledgment of each other—a remarkable contrast to when he’d ridden in.
Frowning, he stepped back from the window. Less than a second’s thought sufficed to suggest that making his presence known to Nigel sooner rather than later would serve everyone, Manachan especially, best.
He looked at Lucilla. She was still gazing down at the stable yard, at the stablemen leading the horses away. Even though he couldn’t see her eyes, from her pensive, assessing expression it was clear that she’d detected the strain between the two groups of men and, like him, found it curious.
“I should go and break the news to Nigel.” He took another step back. When she turned to look at him, he pointed over his shoulder at the door just along the corridor. “That’s the door to the gallery in the main wing.” Briefly, he met her gaze. “I’ll see you later.”
He didn’t wait to see if she would reply; he turned on his heel, strode to the door, and escaped.
Lucilla watched him go. He left the door ajar; whether he’d meant to or not, it was a clear invitation to follow. Which she fully intended to do.
The kiss…had been everything she’d wanted. Even more than she’d dreamed of. But now Nigel and Nolan had arrived, such personal matters had to be set aside—for the moment. Until later.

RELEASE DAY BLITZ! BENEATH HIS DARKNESS by RENEE DYER

HAPPY RELEASE DAY !

  RDB for BHD RDyer

Title: Beneath His Darkness

Series: Healing Hearts

Author: Renee Dyer

Release Date: February 23, 2015

Grant cover

SYNOPSIS

If I could describe my world in a color, it would be black.

My heart is black. My mind is black. Everything is black.

I let darkness take over when I was sixteen. That’s when my world fell apart.

That’s when I learned Tucker Stavros took my life away from me.

I’ve spent years allowing the darkness to comfort me; letting it take my emotions and box them up.

Why do I need emotions anyway? They only make me weak. I need to be strong for what needs to be done.

What needs to be done, you ask?

That’s simple. Destroy Tucker. Bring him to his knees. Show him how it feels to lose everything.

Well, that was the plan, until Cammie Richards walked into my life.

Now there are gray areas — slight color bleeding through the black.

What happens when she looks beneath my darkness and sees the monster lurking there?

Will she run away or try to save me?

How do I tell her I can’t be saved?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

 Renee Dyer

From a young age Renee Dyer had a love of writing, starting with a doodle pad at age four that soon turned into journals and later computer documents.

Poetry became short stories and short stories became a novel.  

Although she’s surrounded by males all day having three sons, a husband and a hyperactive chocolate lab, she still finds time to be all woman when she escapes into the fantasy of reading and writing romance.

 That is, until she needs male perspective and garners eye rolling from her husband.  She’s a true New Englander.  

You’ll find her screaming profanity at her TV while the Pats play and cuddling under blankets during the cold seasons (which is most of them) reading a good book.  

To her snow is not a reason to shut things down, only a reason to slow down and admire the beauty.  Ask her questions and she’ll answer them.  She’s an open book, pun fully intended.

Book Excerpt

“Wow. You’re a vision, you know that?” He practically drools all over. She wears a pair of blue jeans and a low cut green sweater with a white scarf wrapped around her neck. Her hair is up, and she wears light make up.

She chuckles. “Like what you see?” She smirks at him, daunting him. The little vixen can come out and play when she wants and he is enjoying this side of the sexy Gracelynn.

He decides to play dirty himself. “Want to see how happy I am to see you?” He smirks back at her. “Let’s make a wager, shall we?” he asks competitively.

She grins at him. She intently twirls a strand of her hair that she left down by her face between her fingers, licks her lips and stares at him. She looks him up and down, making him even more drawn to her.

He gulps. The damn vixen knows how to play dirty.

“Well, what is the wager? Because if it is staring at each other all night, I could do that and then some.”

REVIEW: HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON On The Couch by Alma H. Bond, PH.D.

0012

 

SYNOPSIS

In the fourth installment of her “On the Couch” series, famed female biographer Dr. Alma Bond looks inside the head and life of presidential frontrunner and informs voters what she’s found.

 

REVIEW

This is the most original concept I’ve come across!

What an extraordinary read! I felt like a fly on the wall in Dr. Darcy Dale’s office, as the author has a gift for depicting a situation as if it is actually occurring. Every chapter was an open doorway to a room full of intimate details about the former First Lady, which made the sessions more realistic. From birth to Benghazi, and beyond, this novel explores Clinton in a most enjoyable, and sometimes heartbreaking, manner.

I’m not a colossal fan of politics, but Hillary Rodham Clinton has always intrigued me. I’ve read several articles in the past, but her story has more depth than I originally considered. The Bibliography is quite extensive; therefore, this was getting several points of reference at once. When you consider what this woman has been through and how she persevered, it’s hard not to admire her. Alma H. Bond, Ph.D. has delivered a powerful interpretation of an enigmatic figure!

I think it’s brilliant!
