The mom and son author duo, C.A. Kunz, thoroughly enjoys writing about things that go bump in the night and futuristic action-packed romances while drinking massive amounts of English breakfast tea and Starbucks coffee.

What would you sacrifice to save the one’s you love? To save the one who holds your heart? To save the world?

Kenley Grayson is all too familiar with these questions.

After Earth is thrust into its first intergalactic war with an unknown race called the Bringers, our military forces begin to suffer heavy losses. Desperate for a solution, the Allied Federation issues a worldwide draft for every able seventeen-year-old to enlist. As Kenley turns seventeen, she finds herself thrown into the very war that took her older brother’s life.

This year’s draft is a little different than in the past though. A new program, known as the Magnus Project, has been introduced, and only the best and brightest qualify. Kenley is amongst a select few whom are chosen to join this elite group of soldiers, and as a part of this project, undergoes a modification procedure that leaves her and her peers endowed with powers beyond their wildest dreams.

As Earth continues in its struggle against the Bringers, Kenley is transported to a high-tech training facility, the Magnus Academy, to prepare for the major battle that lies ahead. It’s here that she meets the California heartthrob, and son of a legendary war hero, Landon Shaw. As unexpected feelings toward Landon begin to develop, Kenley wonders if this is the right time or place for romance to bloom, especially when those feelings start to interfere with her training.

With the weight of the world on her shoulders, Kenley is constantly reminded of how important she and the rest of the Magnus cadets are to the fate of humanity. She is one of the Modified, Earth’s last line of defense against utter destruction.

Shift (Firstborn #2) by Raine Thomas Blog Tour Stop

Having the ability to shapeshift, Sophia is familiar with change. But even she feels the rising tension in her homeland.

A shadowy male and deadly beast reside in their midst. The births of the newest Kynzesti loom. Hostile Mercesti continue to hunt for the Elder Scroll, and a traumatized female is too afraid to use her abilities to stop them.

Topping off Sophia’s stress is Quincy, the male she’s convinced can’t stand her. She rues the loss of their friendship, but can’t figure out how to move past it. She’ll soon learn, however, that mending that rift bears more significance than she ever imagined.

The search for the Elder Scroll takes on unexpected urgency, and Sophia finds herself in a race across the mainland. To stop the Mercesti led by Eirik, she and her companions must get past their differences and unite against them. If they don’t, Eirik will acquire the immense power he seeks, and two of the beings Sophia loves most will die.

Seaweed By Elle Strauss Blog Tour Stop

Dori Seward can’t wait to get out of Eastcove, a sleepy fishing village on the border of New Brunswick and Maine. She bides her time by hanging out with friends, attending swim club, and holding her biggest competition, Colby–who wants more than just friendship, at arm’s length.

Then Tor Riley comes to town and he has everything Dori dreams of in a boyfriend–looks, athleticism and mystery.

But Tor also has a tantalizing secret and Dori is determined to find out what it is. The truth is crazier than her wildest imaginations and more dangerous, too. Dori has new enemies, and they will do anything to get to her.

Her life, her dreams and her love for Tor are all weighing in the balance. Will Dori risk it all in order to have it all?



First I would like to Thank AToMR for allowing me to be a part of this blog tour. I have a lot of blogger friends who love merfolk stories and told me about Seaweed. I decided I would give it a go and I was not disappointed. Seaweed starts out with Dori and her best friend Colby. They enjoy swimming and hanging out but Colby wants more from Dori. Dori only sees Colby as a friend and nothing more. She does not want to hurt his feelings but Colby just seems determined they were meant for one another and continues to pursue Dori in that way.

Then the new guy comes to town Tor and Dori's world is turned upside down. She likes Tor and wants to be with him but Tor is mysterious and has the bad boy persona thing going on. No matter because Dori can't seem to get him out of her head and they start dating. But like I said there is more to Tor than meets the eye and when Dori keeps asking questions what she finds out is mind blowing.

Dori will have to decide if being with Tor is the right thing to do? Will her love be able to handle the secrets and the mysteries that lie ahead? Will Tor open up enough to tell her the truth? Come along on this FANTASTICAL ride where the secrets and mysteries that unravel are sure to blow your mind. Where sacrificing friendships may or may not be worth it in the end.

This is a Novella that sets the reader up for book one Madly and Wolfhardt. Michelle has created a brilliant world where Merfolk meet Werewolves.

Madly is your average nearly-eighteen year old girl—for a princess, that is.

Madly James is thoroughly enjoying her internship in the small town of Slumber when the unthinkable happens—there’s a prison break in Atlas, the magically-protected home of Madly’s race. A traitor has set free eight Lore, the spirits of what humans know as fairy tales, and they are making their way to Slumber to awaken their descendants.

The first spirit to arrive is that of Ulrich Wolfhardt, a man that was once obsessed with wolves and a young maiden he would follow through the woods. After a bite from a wolf, Wolfhardt’s obsession with the girl became an unnatural hunger and the young maiden’s grandmother cursed him with a fate worse than death. And now he’s back…with a vengeance and a bite that can infect others as well.

Madly must learn the identity of Wolfhardt’s descendant and stop him before he kills again and spreads his curse across the earth. But the only person strong enough to help Madly is Jackson, the Sentinel who vowed to protect her and the one person capable of breaking her heart. Can Madly resist forbidden love long enough to save the world from Wolfhardt? Or will she have to sacrifice her heart and her destiny to save the ones she loves?



Madly & Wolfhardt picks up where Madly left off. Madly is the fight of her life and she will need all the help she can get. Jersey and Aidan are right by her side along with Jackson who has sworn to protect her. Madly and the gang have figured out who Wolfhardt descendant is and they are going to do whatever it takes to capture him before he hurts her.

Wolfhardt is awakened after being in prison on Atlas and he is angry and determined to infect people with the virus. When Ulrich was alive he was a man obsessed with wolves and a young maiden. Then his world was turned upside down when he was bitten by a wolf. After he goes after the maiden her grandmother curses him. Angry and infected Wolfhardt is caught and brought to Atlas where he is placed in prison.

Once awakened Wolfhardt is determined to finish what he started and Madly and the gang have to stop him before he hurts more than his descendant. As if Madly doesn't have enough on her plate she is fighting her feelings for Jackson who is a forbidden love. She is to be betrothed to Aidan and when all this is over one of them is going to be left with a broken heart. Which will it be? Will Madly love Jackson or will she love Aidan?

Come along for the best fairy tale ever! Wolves and Merfolk and teenage drama who could ask for more?????? No one so come along and enter the world of Madly!

How deep does love run? Deeper than the ocean? Deeper than memory? Deeper than magic?

Following their plan to save Atlas, Madly and Jackson return the spirit of Wolfhardt to his prison beneath the sea. But even the best laid plans couldn’t account for the surprises they find. This time, Lore aren’t their only challenges.

Madly is special in ways no one could have guessed and dark forces seek to control her. They want her power, but first they must weaken her. They need her beaten. Vulnerable. Near death. And alone. But that task isn’t an easy one with Jackson at her side. The strongest of their kind, the only way to separate Jackson from Madly is to destroy his love for her, to erase it from his mind. And his heart.

Is it possible to steal Jackson’s love from Madly? Or is their love the only truly unbreakable thing?



Madly and The Jackal picks up right where Wolfhardt ended. They have captured him and are returning him to Atlas back to his prison cell where he belongs. Once they get there a few things have changed and Madly and Jackson will have to fight for their lives. They knew there would be challenges but they never expected what they encountered.

Jackson will be tested and he will have to fight his way back to Madly. Madly will be tested and tried because someone wants that power she possesses but in order to do that they will have to bring Madly down to her lowest and weaken her in order to steal her powers. What better way to get to a girl then through her heart.

Will Madly be able to survive this new attack on her? Will Jackson truly give up and walk away from Madly? Or is love strong enough to survive everything that is thrown there way.What is a girl to do when she is fighting for her family and now will have to fight for her heart? Michelle I need more like ASAP! I need to see what true can do because it knows no boundaries or prisons! This is a must read series about love and loyalty.

I was born and raised in the United States, and I’ve lived in several of the fabulous fifty. Though I currently live in the deep South, I spent much of my childhood up North and hope to return there one day. A few other things about me: I believe that sometimes you have to look really, REALLY hard to find the good in people, but it's there. I believe that I'm shrinking (I swear five years ago I was two inches taller). I believe my husband is quite possibly one of the most amazing men in the entire world (I can't be sure because I haven't met all of them). I believe coffee and chocolate, when combined, could be the basis for world peace. I believe that Jesus rocks and communism doesn’t. I believe that white makes me look fat and black collects lint. I believe summer's too hot, winter's too cold and fall was made for football. I like dogs better than cats and the first movie in a trilogy is invariably the best. But most of all, I believe that love conquers all.

Painted Blind by Michelle A. Hansen Blog Tour Stop

Seventeen years old and agoraphobic, Psyche Middleton vows her dad will never see the risqué photos she took during a summer modeling stint abroad, but one of them ends up on a billboard in her Montana hometown. Now everyone—especially her dad—can see it. And yet, somehow, those are the mundane things in her life because she is about to fall unexpectedly, head-over-heels in love with Erik, a mysterious young man who rescues her from a crowd of admirers, and who she’s never actually seen because…he can make himself invisible.

As strange as this may seem, it’s about to get even stranger. Erik takes her to his palace in an idyllic kingdom, and she is swept into the beauty and culture of his world, but his affection has one condition: she may not see him. Overtaken, intrigued, and still not wholeheartedly believing he’s real, Psyche is going to have to decide if she can love him blindly; because if she can’t, she may lose him forever.



Painted Blind took me by surprise. I am so excited to be a part of this tour put on by AToMR. At first when I started reading Painted Blind I thought the story sounded familiar that was when I realized it is a retelling of Psyche and Eros. I was so excited because I LOVE Greek Mythology and so of course as most of you know when I love a book I stayed up to 3am in the morning reading this book until I finished. I love the way Michelle put her own spin on it and created a loveable cast of characters.

Painted Blind starts out with Psyche spending the summer in Italy and doing some modeling. When Psyche comes home for her senior year in high school she is excited. That is until she comes out of her local ice cream shop and looks up at the billboard and sees herself there in a not so nice picture. Freaked out because has no idea how that billboard picture came to be and worried about her father she is rescued from the crowd by Erik. Psyche slowly falls in love with Erik and she longs to see what he looks like. She tries to see what he looks like and Erik leaves her wanting nothing to do with her. What will Psyche do? Will her heart break in two? Will she see Erik again? What will her senior in high school look like?

Erik is a quiet guy who saves Psyche from the people talking about her. He is gentle and kind and he is sure he has found his true love. Only there is someone determined to see them do bad and destroy what they are trying to build. Erik will soon find out how far true love will go to be with the one they want. God I can't say anything more about Erik because it will spoil it for you.

What happens when two people fall in love and someone else tries to destroy it? What happens when you mess up and do the opposite of what you are told to do? Will Psyche and Erik get there Happily Ever After? Read on to see. If you LOVE Greek Mythology like I do you will enjoy Painted Blind!

Dark Summer (Book I, Witchling Trilogy) by Lizzy Ford Promo Post

DARK SUMMER by Lizzy Ford Event Information
Title: “Dark Summer” (Book I, Witchling Trilogy)
Genre and Age Group: Young Adult Paranormal
Author: Lizzy Ford
Release date: August 16


Amazon UK:


Book Description:
A girl with a broken past and a dark secret. A boy with a twisted future and no second chances. When they meet, it just might cost them their souls.

Sixteen-year-old Summer doesn’t expect the new boarding school to be any different than the rest: a temporary stay where everyone will turn against her after a few weeks. Until she meets the rest of the students at this special school and realizes she’s not the only one with magic in her blood. Accustomed to the concrete jungle of LA, she gets lost one night in the forests of the Rocky Mountains and meets Decker, the boy who will become the Master of Night and Fire on his eighteenth birthday. Their connection is instant and dangerous, for both will be forced to choose between Light and Dark, life and death, love – and their souls.

One choice. One soul. One price.

Excerpt #1

“This is simple. Decker, you lead. When he steps forward, Summer you step back.”

They stumbled through the first few steps, with Decker mumbling apologies as he stepped on her toes. Summer’s body felt like it was on fire. Her breathing sounded too loud in her ears.

“Step back, Summer,” Jessie said again. “Let Decker lead!”

Decker smashed her toes, and she stumbled. He caught her as she crashed into him.

“Careful, Decker!” Jessie called.

Summer looked up, instantly caught in Decker’s gaze. His grip stayed around her, pressing their bodies together. As if something clicked, she sensed his next move before he made it. She stepped back with her right foot as he stepped forward with his left. They made it through another step, then another. Their moves grew faster as they began keeping up with the music.

“Excellent!” Jessie exclaimed. “Now you’ve found the rhythm. One, two, three. One, two, three.”

Summer couldn’t look away from him. Their bodies moved as if they belonged together. Decker’s warmth and magick made her feel like her insides were shaking. Jessie’s voice broke through Summer’s trance.

“Sorry, guys, but I can’t find any of my other music. I’ll download some for tomorrow. You want to come back in the morning, after your class, Summer?”

Summer broke eye contact with Decker. Immediately, they fell out of sync and stumbled. He released her and stepped away.

“Sure,” she managed.

“You, too, Decker. You guys are naturals together.”

Summer flushed and turned away, avoiding Decker’s gaze. She’d felt it, too, the instant connection that went too deep to be normal.

“Thanks, Jessie,” Summer said and hurried out of the room. She ran once she entered the hallway and sprinted up the stairs to her room.

Her hands shook. Her heart felt like it was doing cartwheels in her chest. She’d never felt this way for any guy, even Beck.

Decker was off limits. He was aligned to the Dark. She wouldn’t—couldn’t—be falling for him! Yet their connection was unlike anything she’d ever felt. In his arms, she hadn’t been alone.

Excerpt #2

“You want to dance here?” she asked, taking it. “There’s no music.”

Decker swept her into his arms. “We don’t need music.”

They didn’t. Her touch made him shudder, and their bodies synced as they did every time they danced. The music originated from their entwined souls. The blue flames of his magick traveled over her at each point where their bodies touched. Like a switch turning off, the chaos in his mind disappeared. His body relaxed, and he sensed her body yield as well.

“You’re not talking about dancing,” she said.

“No, I’m not,” he replied, heart quickening. He was lost in her dark gaze and soft scent, both girly and earthy. “I’m talking about this, whatever this is. I wasn’t sure you felt it.”

“I do. I just … I’m afraid of what it means.”

“You’ll fear it more when I tell you what I am.”

She tensed but didn’t look away or try to move away. Pressed together, their bodies kept the innate rhythm.

“What?” she asked at last.

Decker drew a breath. Fear trickled through him at the thought of her rejection. He couldn’t live with himself if she walked away. He couldn’t live with himself if he tricked her into being with him, and she found out in two weeks what that really meant. She’d hate him.

“Decker, what?”

“When Beck and I turn eighteen, he becomes the Master of Light, and I become the Master of …”

She stumbled and stopped in place, staring up at him. Her breathing grew fast and erratic, the pulse in her wrist beating like a machine gun against his hand.

“Fire and Night,” she finished in a voice almost too quiet to hear.

He nodded, throat tightening.

Her gaze went to the blue fire traveling up and down her arms. Decker looked at it as well, unable to stop the creep of his magick into her body. It acted as if they were one body, not two, and wouldn’t stay inside him. She said nothing. Decker shifted away and released her, expecting the rejection to follow. The effect she had on him faded without disappearing completely.

“I’m sorry, Summer,” he whispered. “I understand.” He turned to walk away. The chaos and fury returned to his head. He walked a few steps and was about to run for the darkness of the forest when her cool hand touched his arm. Decker stopped without turning.

Love's Prophecy (The Prophecy Series, #1) by Brenda Dyer Book Review and Giveaway

In the depth of time...

Lucifer vowed to destroy humans and take the Earth from The Creator. In secret, vampires were brought about to thwart Lucifer's plan. Locked in a battle centuries old, vampires guarded The Creator's children against annihilation from demons. But the era of a new breed of warrior needed to turn the tides of war has come. The time for the fulfillment of the Vampire Prophecy begins.

Dark warriors of might...

For Mel, a deadly vampire warrior sworn to hunt and kill demons in the dark streets of Vancouver, the mystery surrounding the Vampire Prophecy deepens when he meets Breeana, a human woman who not only bears the mark of the prophecy, but resembles the unknown woman haunting his dreams. A powerful link pulls him to her, overriding his willpower to stay away. When a vengeful demon spies Breeana in his arms, she is marked for death. To protect her, he must take her from the world she knows until he can eliminate the threat. But the real danger is the role Breeana must play in fulfilling the prophecy and the intense feelings she brings out in him. Mel is forced to choose between his obligations to his kind, the world, and the woman he loves.

Small warriors of light...

Veterinarian, Dr. Breeana Spencer is tired of being disappointed by love. Although love and a family is her greatest desire, she decides her career, friends, and romance novels are all she needs. But when she meets a mysterious stranger, she's drawn to him by a connection so forceful it shatters all reason, leaving her incapable of resisting him. Yet there's more to him than smoldering good looks and a rock-hard body. As she's drawn deeper into his danger-filled world, she learns she's part of an ancient vampire legend. Breeana fears her future is no longer hers and will not include Mel. A life altering choice is before her—one that will take all her courage and love to make.


First I would like to thank Brenda Dyer for allowing me to read and review Love's Prophecy. I have to say when I found out the book was about Vampires and Demons I was super excited to read it. I love Vampire and Demon books but I love them more when the author decides to change up a few things and add a different scenery. Brenda did such an excellent job that I had trouble the book down and I stayed up till 3am reading till I was finished. When I finished the last line I wanted more actually I needed more.So without further ado here is my review on Love's Prophecy.

Vampires and Demons live among the humans unbeknownst to them. The Vampires are warriors sworn to protect the human race while the demons are sent to destroy the human race so Lucifer can take over the Earth. Lucifer will stop at nothing to destroy and corrupt the humans on Earth so that he can take over and rule over mankind and make them the way he wants them to be. The Vampires are warriors who were created to protect humans. The humans have no idea that they are there to protect them from evil demons. The Vampires hunt and kill the demons nightly in order to keep peace on Earth.

Mel is a deadly Vampire Warrior who takes his job seriously. He has not had the greatest of upbringing and things have happened to him that has caused his heart to harden.His past has made him strong and he is the fiercest Vampire Warrior around. One day Mel is at a bar working when he meets Breeana. There is something about Breeana that attracts them to one another and has Mel on edge because he has never felt so strongly about a person let alone a human. As they are talking to one another and sharing some private time two demons see them and decide that Mel has done them wrong therefore they are going to do him wrong by hurting Breeana. Now Mel will have to protect Breeana from the demons he hunts. What will Mel do about Breeana? He loves her and wants to protect her but will his past and what he is dictate what he can do for her?

Breeana is a veterinarian who loves to read. She spends her days helping animals and her nights reading romance novels. in the love department Breeana has struck out and ended up with a broken heart so she stays away from relationships and men. She rather cuddle up with a great book and dream about the men in the book that will not and cannot hurt her. That is until she meets Mel. She has never been instantly attracted to a man like she is to Mel. Afraid of what her new feelings are she takes it slow with Mel but then out on date when the demons tell her they are going to kill her does Breeana realize she has gotten herself caught up in something bigger than a broken heart. Breeana will have to decide on whether or not she will trust Mel and believe what he is telling her or will she walk out on him and fend for herself?

For thousands of years the Vampires have fought the corrupt Demons but with Breeana in the picture will things change for the better or for the worst..... you decide by reading this EPIC book!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stop E-Piracy Blog Tour Stop

First I would like to thank Mia Castille for sharing her thoughts about E-Piracy. I hold this near and dear to me even though I am not an author I support their work. I can not stand when people say oh can you share that pdf file with me? NO it is STEALING and I love all Indie Authors and support them so I NEVER EVER share what is not mines!

Title: Don't Be An Arg-ly Pirate

For this article, we're going to do a little exercise. Close your eyes, no wait! Don't close your eyes. You already did, didn't you? I'll wait until your eyes are open before we continue . . . *tapping foot* . . . OK, let's start over.

First scenario: Imagine your dream job, dream class, and dream project. Imagine that you've poured your heart and soul into that project for said class or job. Imagine it took months maybe even years to craft such a master piece. You pushed your own boundaries; you created a life in that project. Then on the day of your presentation, unveiling, or demonstration, everyone already had it, in their hands and knew what you were presenting. How would that make you feel?

Second scenario: Imagine that you are hosting the hottest party your town has ever seen. It's an invite only, to get an invitation, people have to purchase it. These tickets are special, with holographic images and personalized invites; we're talking high-tech. You dropped tons of money on food, drinks, entertainment and venue. Let's say you sell a hundred tickets. On the day of the party, however, instead of everyone going to your party, they go to another party exactly like yours because they downloaded free copies of the invitations off of a website.

Do you see where I'm going with this?

Many experts say that the piracy of e-books isn't as severe as music and movie piracy. They claim that because the publishing industry was already creating e-books, readers have the alternative. (It took the music industry years to begin producing their music in MP3 form.) They also say what does it hurt when all these indie and self-published authors sell their books for $0.99. to that I say, "BLEH!" A little immature I know, but stealing is stealing. In ancient days, a thief would get their hand chopped off when they were caught stealing, whether it was an apple or gold coins. Now I'm not saying to chop hands off, but when did we forget that if it's wrong on a large scale it's wrong on a small scale.

I'm not going to lie. I've ripped music off of my friend's CD's before. *I never used Napster, because as embarrassing as it is to admit I didn't completely understand it* I've watched bootleg movies. If I were to sit here and say that I didn't it would be like a president denying that he smoked pot. Any of them. Everyone did it, does it, has done it. That doesn't make it right. I didn't understand what the big deal was, until I was on the other end. When you pirate e-books, it hurts the publisher (traditional, indie, or s-p) it steals from the author who poured their heart and soul into those words. Heart and soul, I bleed for my characters, laugh and cry with them. If you've ever had something that you valued so fiercely you might understand how damaging it could be to learn people are stealing your work.

"So it's one book, that Author is making millions." Not really, especially if they are indie or s-p. I have yet to become a hundred-aire, let alone a thousand-aire . . . you get the idea.

We write, not to become famous, but to share a story. We write so that the reader can escape, or doesn't feel alone. We want to connect with readers and show them that we're all the same.

Have I enlightened your mind yet?

To make it right, here are a few things you can do:

1. Purchase the books you've stolen, and for brownie points recommend the books you've stolen by writing reviews on your blog, Amazon, goodreads, shelfarie. ect. And recommend them to all of your friends.
2. Request the books at your local library. It's really hard for an indie author to break into Libraries, especially if there's no demand for it. Help us out.
3. (This one is severe) Become an anti-piracy advocate. Stand up when you witness acts of piracy. Don't just sit back and let it happen. Sometimes it's hard to do the right thing when everyone else doesn't. Show your character, and be a leader.

Final point: Most indie authors will give their e-book to you for an honest review. I know I will. It doesn't even have to be a good review, though I do LOVE those, but an honest review. With technology, you can connect with even traditionally published authors, who might develop a soft spot for you. I guess, my main point here is, think before you act. Think about the impact of your actions, how you would feel if it happened to you, and how to make a difference.

The Legion of Nothing: Rebirth (The Legion of Nothing #1) by Jim Zoetewey Blog Tour Stop

The Legion of Nothing: Rebirth

series: The Legion of Nothing, #1

Author: Jim Zoetewey

Genre: Young-Adult, Superhero,

Publisher: 1889 Labs


Pages: 374


Book Description:
"You may kill somebody today. We won't think anything less of you for it."

Nick Klein's grandfather was the Rocket.

For three decades, the Rocket and his team were the Heroes League--a team of superheroes who fought criminals in the years after World War II.

But Nick and his friends have inherited more than their grandparents' costumes and underground headquarters... they've inherited the League's enemies and unfinished business.

In the 1960's, Red Lightning betrayed everyone, creating an army of supervillains and years of chaos. The League never found out why.

Now, Nick and the New Heroes League will have no choice but to confront their past.

Excerpt #1:

“What I’m thinking,” Jaclyn’s grandfather said, “is that stealth would be best. Travis and Haley, you both have Chuck’s abilities, correct?”

Travis said, “Yes, sir,” while Haley said, “Right,” in a chirpy voice that seemed out of place.

“Good. Then I think the two of them should sneak in, knock him out, and leave.”

“Unless the mayor senses them and bores straight into their heads,” Daniel said.

“That’s the hole in the plan,” Jaclyn’s grandfather said, amused.

That you could drive a truck through, Daniel sent to me.

In both of our minds, Daniel’s dad said: Listen.

“Since stealth isn’t an option,” Jaclyn’s grandfather said, straightening in his chair, “we’ll have to take the direct route. Larry, could you take the Rhinomobile straight up to the door?”

Larry laughed. “I could drive it into the living room.”

“That’s not what I want you to do. I want you to drive straight up to the house and distract the police and the Guard. Fight them if you have to. Everyone who can’t fly will be with you.

"Everyone who can fly will be going in through the second floor. Nick, you’ll want to hang back while Daniel and his dad subdue the mayor. Someone will need to be watching for aerial attacks.”

“Is that likely?” I asked.

“Anything’s possible,” he said. “The Hangmen are in town. They’ve already been beaten back from the mayor’s house once today. When the Rhinomobile breaks through, it’ll be a race between you and Vengeance’s Hangmen. Be there first.”

He moved his head to face everyone at the table, regarding us with his near-sightless eyes.

“One more thing: you may kill somebody today. We don’t want you to, but sometimes it’s unavoidable. We won’t think anything less of you for it.”

“No. It can be avoided,” Daniel’s dad said. “Always. And it should be. Whatever we might think, in the public’s opinion you’ll have killed an innocent man.”

“Not in my experience,” Jaclyn’s grandfather said.

Daniel’s dad stood up. “We need to talk through a few things privately. Nick, is the lab unlocked?”

***Cover Reveal*** Wide Awake By Shelly Crane


A girl.

A coma.

A life she can't remember.

When Emma Walker wakes up in the hospital with no knowledge of how she got there, she learns that she's been in a coma for six months. Strangers show up and claim to be her parents, but she can't remember them. She can't remember anyone. Not her friends, not even her boyfriend. Even though she can't remember, everyone wants her to just pick up where she left off, but what she learns about the 'old her' makes her start to wish she'd never woken up. Her boyfriend breaks up with the new girl he's dating to be with her, her parents want her to start planning for college, her friends want their leader back, and her physical therapist with the hazel eyes keeps his distance to save his position at the hospital.

Will she ever feel like she recognizes the girl in the mirror?

Expected Publication : Early 2013



Someone was speaking. No, he was yelling. It sounded angry, but my body refused to cooperate with my commands to open my eyes and be nosy. I tried to move my arms and again, there was no help from my limbs. It didn't strike me as odd until then.

I heard, "All I'm saying is that you need to be on time from now on." Then a slammed door startled me. I felt my lungs suck in breath that burned and hissed unlike anything I'd ever felt before. It was as if my lungs no longer performed that function and were protesting.

Then I heard a noise, a gaspy sound, and my cheek was touched by warm fingers. "Emma?" I tried to pry my eyes and felt the glue that seemed to hold them hostage begin to let go. "Emma?"

Who was Emma? I felt the first sliver of light and tried to lift my arm to shield myself, but it wouldn't budge. Whoever was in the room with me must've seen me squint, because the light was doused almost immediately to a soft glow. My eyelids fluttered without strength. I tried to focus on the boy before me. Or maybe he was a man. He was somewhere in between. I didn't know who he was, but he seemed shocked that I was looking up at him.

"Emma, just hold on. I'm your physical therapist and you're in the hospital. Your…" he looked back toward the door, "parents aren't here right now, but we'll call them. Don't worry."

I looked quizzically at him. What was he was going on and on about? That was when I saw the tubes on my chest connecting my face to the monitors. The beeping felt like a knife through my brain. I looked at the stranger's hazel eyes and pleaded with him to explain.

He licked his lips and said softly, "Emma, you were in an accident. You've been in a coma. They weren't sure if…you'd wake up or not."

Of everything he just said, the only thing I could think was, 'Who's Emma?'

If I Were You (Inside Out Trilogy #1) by Lisa Renee Jones Blog Tour Stop

OUT AUGUST 24th in all formats at all e-tailers!

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. That is when her neighbor tells her it is not hers but it belongs to the woman who left her stuff in storage and is selling it. The neighbor is so excited about the paintings and the other journals and Sara tells her she can't sell someones private things.Her neighbor tells her she will make a lot of money by selling this things and has no intention on keeping them.

Sara is so shocked by this but what can she do. Then the neighbor comes and tells her the next morning she is eloping with her boyfriend and she is on her way to Paris and Sara can have the storage unit and sell it or whatever but it is her's to keep. Sara is excited because she really enjoyed the journals. They were dark and dirty and there is something in those journals that call to Sara. She decides from that moment on she will find this Rebecca and return her things to her. Sara's first stop is trying to find out information on Rebecca and when she starts to dig in the storage unit she finds a brochure for the gallery she worked at. Sara is excited because she loves art and majored in it in college. Sara goes home and looks up information about the gallery and decides she will go to a unveiling of a famous painter that she loves for a charity. While there she meets this guy who she is so taken with. Their is something about this guy and he is so knowledgeable about art that they talk and before you know it they are talking about different artists.

As Sara is looking for the Art gallery owner he finds her and they talk about Rebecca which he says she is on an extended vacation but Sara is not buying it. Then the oddest thing happens and Sara ends up selling a painting to a couple looking to buy a piece for their main party room. The owner of gallery is impressed by Sara and asks her if she would like to work for him and she agrees. See Sara has a secret that she is keeping and that is she has always wanted to work in the art industry but it does not pay the bills. So she has stayed away from it and became a teacher instead. She is not happy being a teacher because her passion is in the art world where Mark the gallery owner has offered her a great summer. After agreeing to work for him and start that Monday Mark asks her if Chris Merit who is one of her favorite artists she studied in school proud of her for selling his painting. She has no idea what Mark is talking about and he realizes that Chris never told her who he was. The guy she was talking to the whole time was Chris Merit and she never knew it.

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? Or will she chose Mark or Chris? As Sara will soon find out everyone has a past and the past can be a dangerous thing. Will she succumb to lust? Will she giver herself to a broken damaged man? This is such a must read for this summer I am going to re-read it a thousand times! I love the story line and the ending is OMG! I have no words for the ending except I NEED BOOK TWO RIGHT NOW!!!!!! PRONTO!!!!!!!!


Lisa thank you so much for stopping by Kaidans Seduction. It is the day before your release of If I Were You and I know you are busy busy getting ready for your release. I first want to say that I was so RIVETED by IIWY that I stayed up until 3am in the morning to finish reading it and when I got to the end I yelled at my kindle fire OH NO OH NO…… such a riveting ending. You have the right kind of spice and mystery going on. Chris oh Chris be still my heart he is the ultimate bad boy wrapped up into a beautiful package and Mark oh man tall, dark, and handsome comes to mind but controlling to the nth degree to is HOT! Well enough of my rambling because I could go on for days about the book and skip the interview but the girls have already told me they would kill me if I did not ask you some questions.

What inspired you to write IIWY?

My fiancee and I had started buying and selling storage units, and he’d found a journal he began to read. He was immediately enthralled and couldn’t stop reading. The author had drama and even a murder next oor. It was then that he began to urge me to write a story about a journal found in a storage unit that was both sexy and mysterious. He loves thrillers and so do I. At first I wasn’t excited but I began jotting down notes and over time the story took root. I think it became more powerful because I took so much time learning the characters.

When will we find out what happened to Chris in his childhood to make him the way he is?

These answers will come in book 2 for sure

Can you tell us why Mark and Chris do not get along?

This is also part of book 2:)

When will we find out what happened to Rebecca?

Book 2 will give you a firm conclusion to Rebecca’s story

Why did Sara really give up her career in the arts?

There Is a lot about Sara’s family that will be discovered in book 2 and it has a lot to do with all of her decisions

What is the significance of the song Broken by Lifehouse?

Both Sara and Chris have some history yet to be revealed and they both feel very broken

What is the significance of the wine Chateau Montelena?

Chris is from Paris and the Chateau helped put Sonoma on the map by being chosen in a wine competition in Paris

Can you give us 5 random facts about Sara, Chris, and Mark that we did not get to read in the book?

I’m afraid to do this because there are so many things you discover in book 2 and I don’t want to ruin the experience:)

When will the second book be released?

Book 2 is Feb 1 and Book 3 May 1

How much research did you do for the BDSM part of the book?

I did quite a lot and boy did I get some stuff I wasn’t looking for. You stumble onto a lot of stuff when you research and weed through it to find valuable, quality information from people who really know what they are talking about.

Lisa, than you so much again for stopping by and sharing your world with us. I am HUGE fan and can’t wait to read more from you. I am just so excited for you and Congrats on your new release tomorrow!

A short excerpt from IF I WERE YOU:

His fingers knot in my hair and I gasp at the unexpected bite of his grip, holding me steady. “Is that all you got?” I demand, shocked at how much I want more. How much I want whatever is beneath his surface.

I’m not scared. I’m aroused. I’m ready.

His eyes probe mine, his expression hard, intense. “I thought you were a good little school teacher.”

“You’re corrupting me,” I declare, “and I seem to like it.” I barely issue the challenge before he’s pulling my mouth to his, and he is kissing me with unrestrained, burning passion. I taste the part of him I want to know, the part he’s afraid of, and I burn to know more. Maybe he’s right. Maybe I am playing with fire, but I cannot stop myself. Beyond reason, I will push him until he reveals everything.

Book Description
"Enforcer Fontana Marks is on vacation undercover until she has to testify against the Track Cartel for crimes against the Galactic Coalition. But the cartel is hiding something, and Fontana intends to find out what--then make them pay for murdering Jenny, the young scientist Fontana failed to protect on a previous assignment.

The last thing Fontana intends to do while vacationing incognito on the fantasy resort Sagitariun is follow the advice of her superior. "Rest, recuperate, and find a man."

But how can a woman resist a blond, blue-eyed, chisel-jawed, great-assed man streaking naked in public when he's obviously running from someone? And why can't she to get rid of the damned trench coat she stole to rescue him?"

Adult 18+ excerpt

Fontana spotted trouble when the man first burst into Spacer Jack’s Bar and Grill. It wasn’t his chiseled jaw and blond hair or the way he scanned the joint with his intense blue eyes. No, the trouble was—he was naked. The towel wrapped around his slim hips had snagged on the swinging bar door when he entered, and he didn’t look back in his sprint toward the kitchen. He shot past where Fontana sat at the bar, his muscular ass bunching with the effort of his long strides.

Her pulse jumped. If that's trouble, I want some.

The naked man disappeared through the kitchen doors. A collision of bodies sounded.

Fontana straightened. How was a woman to mind her own business when a nude man was in trouble? She shoved off the corner stool and dashed after the naked man, swiping a man’s trench coat off the coatrack standing beside the kitchen door. She pushed through the swinging door and halted centimeters from where the naked man lay sprawled on top of a waiter. A tray of pasta entrées hovered on its anti-grav suspension, where the waiter would have been holding it in his upturned hand before the man rammed into him.

In all her years of undercover work, she had never come across a situation quite like this. And probably wouldn’t again.

Fontana seized the naked man’s arm, hauled him to his feet, and threw the coat over his shoulders as she bolted with him toward the rear exit. She dragged him through the back door, and they practically fell into the back alley by the dumpsters. A furry rodent skittered from nearby tin cans and disappeared behind a stack of pallets. She couldn’t help a smile. The alley was a replica of mid-twentieth-century Earth, complete with robo-rats and all.

She grasped the man’s shoulders and shoved him against the restaurant wall. Her pulse sped up when the steely muscles beneath her fingers tensed. How was it possible for his hard body to get any harder? She’d seen Aslothian gladiators with less muscle. His blue-eyed gaze locked on to hers.

Fontana ignored the tremor that rippled through her, pressed her body against his solid two meter frame, and demanded, “What the hell is going on?”

His cock pulsed against her abdomen and began to thicken. This diversion was exactly what her superior, Colonel Stephaney Lyons, had ordered. “Find a man and reaffirm life. Let him fuck your brains out.” The colonel wasn’t usually one for getting quite so personal or so crude, but she knew how angry Fontana was about Jenny’s death and the failure of the mission on Rigil IV.

The naked man grasped her shoulders and drew her closer. “Who are you?” His drawl belied the intensity of his stare.

Well, well, a man who knew how to pace himself. Fontana slipped a hand between them and wrapped her fingers around his erection. Her mouth went dry. He was hard as a rock. She squeezed the thick rod. He hardened even more beneath her fingers.

“I’m asking the questions.” Damn if she didn’t sound like Detective Friday from the twentieth-century series Dragnet. Dragnet’s brand of law was before the Criminal Rights Act of 2141.

The naked man gave a low laugh. “Oh, tough girl.”

“Who are you running from?”

“Maybe I should be running from you.”

“Not while I have hold of this.” She yanked his cock with just enough force to keep his attention.

He sucked in a breath.

Now she had him. “I can play yanky-panky all night.”

His shaft throbbed, and his warm hands slid down her arms, stopping to rest on her hips. Long fingers flexed against her carbon-fiber parachute pants. That and the halter she wore were a woman’s standard garb in Spacers. She released him when he rolled her mound against his rod. Fontana grasped his arms and angled her hips so that the steely length slid along her clit. He groaned, and the sound sent butterflies skittering across the inside of her stomach.

*** COVER REVEAL *** Flukes by Nichole Chase


The cover was designed by Stephanie Mooney of Mooney Designs

Meena has a secret guarded closely by her family—a secret as dangerous as the sea, and buried just as deep. When court appointed community service workers are assigned to Flukes, the family-owned animal sanctuary, everyone is on high alert. It doesn’t help that Meena finds herself attracted to sexy-as-sin Blake Weathering, one of the new workers. If he wasn’t so distracting, she might be able to land Flukes a much-needed cruise line contract.

Blake Weathering, the first in his family to attend public school, has developed a tough image. Unfortunately it lands him in trouble. Now banned from his high school graduation ceremony, getting his diploma is dependent upon a community service gig cleaning fish crap. No diploma, no trust fund fortune—and no way to escape his overbearing father. The last thing he needs is the distraction of a mysterious girl with teal eyes who pulls at his heart strings.

When Blake discovers Meena’s secret, they are both thrown into a desperate search for information about her past. Two worlds pull them in opposite directions, and they will have to fight to hold onto all that really matters.


Nichole Chase is a daydreamer. No, really, just ask any of the math teachers that had the misfortune of seeing her name appear on their class schedule. For years she has had story lines and characters begging for attention, but she resolutely pushed them aside to focus on more normal (read, boring) jobs. Well, no longer! She is currently heeding the voices in her head and frantically writing their stories. Nichole resides in South Georgia with her husband, energetic toddler, three dogs, and two cats. When not devouring novels by the dozens, you may find her writing, painting, crafting, or chasing her daughter around the house while making monster noises.
