Release Day – Command The Tides by: Wren Handman!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Command The Tides,
a romantic fantasy novel by Wren Handman

CtT_FRONT_FINAL

Excerpt:

“David, help Ryan cover the trail. I’ll help Sarah take Darren. Taya, take my sword and cover us.”
“The girl? She’s like to cut off her own feet as an enemy!” Liam hissed.
Taya felt her face grow hot. As always when she felt embarrassment closing in, she covered it with anger. She grabbed Jeremy’s sword by the hilt, drawing it out with one smooth motion and swinging it down so the point touched the
ground just an inch in front of Liam’s foot. She felt Jeremy take a staggering
step backward, startled.
“I will not only cut our enemy, I will cut the feet off of our enemy and
leave them to bleed in the dirt. I haven’t let us down yet, and I certainly don’t
intend to start now. And if you ever call me ‘the girl’ again, I will show you
exactly what I am expert at cutting off,” she snarled, and then she hoisted the
sword and spun on her heel, storming away before he could react.
She stood at the edge of their sad, sodden company, the hilt of the sword
resting snugly in the palm of her hand, her back straight and her head held high,
and the only thing going through her mind was the fact she had absolutely,
completely, no idea how to use a sword.

Love Starts With Z by Tera Shanely: Excerpt & Giveaway!!!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Love Starts with z

available 2/17/15

Excerpt:

It wasn’t until she stood panting over the bodies that she noticed the rope tied from the girl’s wrist to a woman, whose severed head stared back at her, teeth clacking rhythmically. Kneeling, she touched the blood stained rope and frowned. Any similarity between the two Deads had faded over the years of their decay, but they had to be related. Mother and daughter, perhaps, who’d got in a bad spot somewhere and been cornered. Tied themselves together so they’d stay side by side forever.

She wanted to weep for them.

Instead, she drew her dagger upward and freed the mother’s snapping jaws from an unfair afterlife.

She didn’t know how he’d approached so quietly, but Kaegan unhooked the small shovel from her satchel and started digging without a word. Dropping to her knees, she scooped dirt with her hands until there was a shallow grave made for two, and wordlessly, they dragged the mother and daughter into their final resting place. She cradled the child in her mother’s embrace and Kaegan covered them with the rich, black earth.

When she turned, the rest of the team stood in a quiet line near the grave, but she didn’t offer an explanation. She wouldn’t bury every one—couldn’t bury them all like they deserved—but she’d bury the ones she couldn’t live without doing it for. If the team didn’t like it, tough. She was through with apologizing for who she was.

Glaring at Mark, with his face still caked in blood, something loosened deep within her. She’d been sorry for so long, but what for? She was a monster, trying to be human, and dammit, she’d succeeded for the most part. She was a killer, the daughter of the infamous Laney Landry and Derek Mitchell. She’d been trained to fight by Finn and learned survival from Aaron Guist himself. Vanessa had gifted her speed with a blade, and she’d been raised as a daughter of the heart by the greatest leader in the known world, Sean Daniels. She was warrior, friend, ally, and enemy. She was Dead and human, and no matter which side she chose, she was traitor. Tired of apologizing for being different, this was where the winds of change turned into a fucking tsunami. She was a weapon, and they didn’t even know it.

She.

Was.

Soren.

Synopsis:

Twenty-four years into the Dead outbreak that ended the world, Soren Mitchell sticks out like a sore thumb in the remains of the human race. She’s an anomaly: a hybrid of human and Dead, created by her mother’s genetic immunity. Like her parents, she’s fierce and strong. But despite their hopes for her happiness and safety, and even though she is no real threat to the colony, she has let the humans muzzle her and confine her within the walls of Dead Run River in search of a cure.

When Kaegan Langford stumbles into the colony with an injured friend draped across his shoulders, her world is turned upside down. Intrigued and affected by her, he asks her to come to Empalme, Mexico with him to fight in the war between Deads and humans. It’ll be a long, treacherous journey to the coast, but she’s had all she can take in the colony.

Battles with Deads, betrayal, injury, kidnappings, and a criminal-run train ride stand between them and the war. But in the end, it’s not just the war with the Deads that could be the death of them.

Tera Shanley’s final book in the Dead Rapture series will thrill your heart…and your braaaains.

Entity is LIVE!!!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

winner

“I’d been face to face with some of the most vicious and evil creatures in this world and the next. Heck, I’d even stared into the eyes of Lucifer himself. But I’d never had a deeper, more intense feeling of dread in my life.”

 


SUMMARY
Sometimes I liked to imagine, just for a second, that I was plain old Evelyn with nothing better to do in the morning than lie here with her man.

But that’s not how it was. That’s not who we were…

Evelyn Brighton and Daniel Summers are demon hunters, and they wouldn’t have it any other way. Or would they, given the choice again?

Los Angeles is crawling with demons in disguise, and Evelyn and Daniel are a dynamic and fearless demon-slaying duo. Under the authority of Lebriga Corporation and protection of their Divinity blades, this duo has never felt more ass-kicking against evil or more in love with each other.

But something is rotten in the state of home demonstration parties—and it’s not because a seal’s broken in the Tupperware. Beautiful Illuminations is the latest rage in home-consulting cosmetics, founded by Annabelle Simmons. But beneath the layers of makeup and human flesh lurks Anabael, a disembodied Spectoral demon that inhabits people and steals their physical form. To a spirit like that, an ageless demon hunter has a body to die for.

And Evelyn just might.

As Lebriga battles Anabael mind, body, and soul, Evelyn and Daniel must draw on the strength of their relationship to win the war against the Spectoral menace. But what if winning the war means losing their love?

My boys are all oiled up and ready to get down and dirty!

Representing in the Smart Assed and Enigmatic category, we have Daniel Summers from Divinity, sponsored by Amber’s Reading Room. Okay, so maybe he’s not so much with the enigmatic, but he is just about as snarky and smart assed as they come. Plus, he says things like this

DanielS1

 

*~~~*

“I’m going to trace every single line of every single tattoo on your entire body.”

*~~~*

I’ll tell ya what, he ain’t lyin’!

And, representing in the Swoony and Sensitive category, we have the one, the only, the swashbuckling master himself, Orrin Walsh from Cat O’ Nine Tails, sponsored by Eskimo Princess Review Blog! This category is dead on, because this is how my boy Orrin rocks it

OrrinWalsh-CO9

*~~~*

Orrin’s delightfully naked body shimmered with a light sheen of perspiration in the candlelight as he lay on his side, propped up on his elbow. He tilted his head back as he lifted a slice of mango to his lips and proceeded to seductively tongue the delicate flesh and slowly suck it into his mouth.

*~~~*

Hells yeah! That’s how Orrin rolls!

So, this is just Round One and I need y’alls help to get my boys into Round Two. All you need to do is head on over to Love Between the Sheets and cast your votes for Daniel and Orrin in their respective categories! And make sure to visit the sponsoring websites, Amber’s Reading Room and Eskimo Princess Review Blog, to enter to win an ecopies of Divinity and Cat O’ Nine Tails!
