Cover REveal: Elsker and Tur by ST Bende @stbende

Tur is #0.5 in The Elsker Saga


Inga Andersson is the envy of every girl in Asgard. On the surface she has it all -- great friends, a job as Odin’s personal fight choreographer, and a happy ever after with her realm’s hottest assassin. But when evil invades Asgard, her perfect world comes crashing down. Someone is planning to kill off the gods, and Inga’s best friend Ull is first on their list. With the Norse apocalypse a nanosecond away, Inga has to decide how she’ll spend her final moments of freedom. Because from the moment this battle begins, Inga’s happily ever after will be nothing more than a memory.

Some things are worth fighting for.


Elsker is #1 in The Elsker Saga


You don’t win the heart of an immortal assassin without making a few enemies along the way.

Kristia Tostenson prefers Earl Grey to Grey Goose and book clubs to nightclubs, but when she transfers from her one-stoplight town to Cardiff University in Wales she falls in love with Ull Myhr.  Her new boyfriend isn’t exactly what she was expecting.  He’s an honest to goodness Norse God - an immortal assassin fated to die at Ragnarok, the battle destined to destroy Asgard and Earth.  Kristia’s crazy visions are the only thing that can save their realms.  Her orderly life just got very messy.


About the Author

Before finding domestic bliss in suburbia, ST Bende lived in Manhattan Beach (became overly fond of Peet’s Coffee) and Europe… where she became overly fond of the musical Cats. Her love of Scandinavian culture and a very patient Norwegian teacher inspired the ELSKER series. She hopes her characters make you smile and that one day pastries will be considered a health food.

Cover Reveal: A LATE THAW by Ana Blaze

A Late Thaw by Ana Blaze has a new cover (designed by me!)! It's a contemporary funny romance, re-releasing this month!



Barrett, Vermont, home to nearly as many goats as people. It’s the perfect picturesque spot to stop for cocoa after a ski trip or to buy your Christmas tree from a hunky farmer wearing snug jeans and a pair of well-worn boots. Kiley St. Claire isn’t there for either. She’s come home for one reason and one reason only: make enough money waiting tables at the local tourist trap to survive her final semester of graduate school. Of course she is going to have to see that Christmas tree farmer eventually. That’s fine; Kiley isn’t the same nerdy little girl he palled around with. Nope, she’s done crushing on Cole Thomas. Totally done.

Cole thought he was ready, but seeing Kiley again is a punch to the gut. She rejected him and ran away without explanation. He still couldn’t imagine a future with another woman. Now at least he’ll have a chance to say what he’s needed to say for years and then, just maybe, he’ll be ready to move on. He only wishes she didn’t look so damn good in her uniform.

Cover Reveal: Lux Consequences by Jennifer L. Armentrout @jlarmentrout


Lux: Beginnings (Obsidian & Onyx) and Lux: Consequences (Opal & Origin) will both be releasing on June 3, 2014.


About Lux: Beginnings (Obsidian & Onyx)

Obsidian

There's an alien next door. And with his looming height and eerie green eyes, he's hot...until he opens his mouth. He's infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, he lights me up with a big fat bulls-eye. Turns out he has a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal his abilities and the only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to him until my alien mojo fades. If I don’t kill him first, that is.

Onyx

Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro alien connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems. I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me?

Goodreads | Amazon | B&N


About Lux: Consequences (Opal & Origin)

Opal

After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different... And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing alien hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

Origin

Daemon will do anything to get Katy back. After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, he’s facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. But the most dangerous foe has been there all along, and when the truths are exposed and the lies come crumbling down, which side will Daemon and Katy be standing on? And will they even be together?

Excerpt: FAE by CJ Abedi @cjabedi


Caroline Ellis' sixteenth birthday sets into motion a series of events that have been fated for centuries. A descendant of Virginia Dare, the first child born in the lost colony of Roanoke, and unaware of her birthright as the heir to the throne of the Light Fae, it isn’t until Caroline begins a tumultuous relationship with Devilyn Reilly that the truth of her heritage is revealed.

Devilyn is the only Fae who is both of the Light and of the Dark, and struggles to maintain that precarious balance to avoid succumbing to the power of the Dark within him.  He is the only one who can save Caroline from those who would destroy her and destroy all hope for unity among the Fae. He promises Caroline that he will protect her at all costs, even when it means protecting her from himself.

Told from the alternating perspectives of Caroline and Devilyn, FAE draws on mysteries, myths and legends to create a world, and a romance, dangerously poised between Light and Dark.

Excerpt

I walked down the hall and out of the front door to the parking lot literally fanning my face with my hand, when I saw a vending machine from the corner of my eye and immediately made my way towards it.

I put my dollar bill in the machine and pressed the button for a Diet Coke. I leaned over and pushed the door back to pull my drink out, but it was stuck.

“Great,” I muttered to myself.

I rattled the door hoping I could pull it out.

“Can I help you with that?” a stranger asked me curiously. I jumped at the sound of his voice. I hadn’t even heard him approach.

He was a very attractive guy with beautiful blue eyes and blond hair. I didn’t recognize him and figured he must be from Plymouth.

“Umm…thanks, I think I got it,” I said as I made one big tug and pulled it out of the hole.

“You’re pretty strong,” he noted.

“It must not take much to impress you,” I couldn’t help myself from saying with a laugh. “Pulling a Coke out of the machine isn’t that remarkable.”

“I guess not. But your quarterback, now he’s pretty impressive,” the stranger said. “There must be something in the Camden County water system.”

I smiled as I thought about Devilyn.

“Do you go to Plymouth?” I asked as I popped open my soda.

“Yeah, my name is Patrick,” he replied as he extended his hand.

“Caroline.” Patrick stared at my face for a moment, almost like he was looking for something. I couldn’t help but feel a bit nervous as I scanned the surrounding area. It seemed like we were the only two around.

“Sorry, I don’t mean to hover. I actually was just sticking around to meet your quarterback. He’s a phenomenal player,” he explained almost as if he sensed my anxiety. “He destroyed our team with such ease. I mean we were literally crushed out there. I’ve never seen anything like it.”

“Well Devilyn is pretty impressive,” I said loyally.

“Is that his name?” Patrick asked with a big smile. “I just saw his last name on his jersey. Reilly?”

“Yeah, his name is Devilyn Reilly.”

“Do you know him?” he asked.

“Yeah, I do.”

“I don’t want to seem like a stalker, but I’d love to meet him. I’d really like to introduce myself.”

“Um, sure I guess I can arrange that,” I replied hesitantly, suddenly cursing myself for the stupidity of leaving the locker room without someone. “I’m a reporter for the paper, and I think the players are still changing, but they should be out any moment now.”

“I just wanted to ask him if he had any special training or if he went to a camp or something,” he continued. “My kid brother wants to be a quarterback, and so I would love any advice I can get. The quarterback of the Plymouth team is a little arrogant and obviously not that good.”

“I’m sure he’ll be able to answer your questions.”

I couldn’t push the strange gnawing feeling I had in my gut. There was just something off about this guy. The way he stared. The way he lingered. It was just strange. I kept myself from shivering.
