Conjuring Wrath

Series: Seven Deadly Series #3

by Michelle Gross

 

Genre: Paranormal Romance

 

Release date: September 24, 2019

 

Cover Design: L.J Anderson at Mayhem Cover Creations

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/40816958-conjuring-wrath

 

Blurb:

The age of the Reapers has ended.

With the new threat of the Harvesters and the approaching end, the troubles are here to stay.

Barron Reaper, the bearer of wrath, knows that more than anyone. With the sin of rage in his veins, his life is a chaotic mess of gloom. The vicious immortal has never stopped or relaxed a moment in all his years to feel hope. Especially not when another problem arises on top of everything else. An old demon tradition is being brought back on the blood moon.

The worlds are crumbling around his feet, but that doesn’t stop fate from forcing them together.

Gwendolyn Dolson is stuck in a hospital waiting on a chance at life that she will never get when she witnesses a cloaked figure slip through a patient’s door. Seconds later, a man dies in that room.

This dying girl is about to find out how drastically life can change.

 

Snippet:

“Wait,” she mumbled. “How does this work?”

“Scared?” My lips tipped upward.

“Do you really just disappear? Is that what we’re going to do?” She pushed a palm against me. “Jesus, why are you so big?”

She barely came up to my pecs, and now she was patting her hand along the hard ridges of my abs not having a clue that she was petting wrath. Delicate fingers traced over my shirt. Her small curious touch seeped through the fabric, tingling and heating every inch of skin she outlined. There I went again, being oddly overwhelmed by her. I pushed her hand away, distancing myself from the sensations she stirred. She was so small next to me. How could something so tiny affect me?  

“Is that an eight pack?” Her nails dug into my abdomen as she started counting, not bothered that I had already pushed her fingers away once.

Fucking Hades! She was the little engine that never shut up.

Author Bio:

Michelle is from a small town in Eastern Kentucky where opossums try to blend in with the cats on the porch and bears are likely to chase your pets—this is very true, it happened with her sister’s dog. Despite the extra needed protection for your pets, she loves the mountains she calls home. She has a man and twin girls who are the light of her life and the reason she’s slightly crazy.

As a kid, she was that cousin, that friend, that sister and daughter, the talker who could spin a tale and make-believe into any little thing so it was no surprise when she found love in reading, and figured all these characters inside her head needed an outlet. They wanted to be heard, so she wrote.

The voices keep growing faster than she gets the time to write.

The stories are never going to end. That’s perfectly okay, though. We never want to stop an adventure.

She writes and loves many different genres so sign up to her mailing list to keep updated on her releases!

Blog Tour: Animal's Redemption (Insurgents MC series) by Chiah Wilder, 99 cents June 24-28

 

Animal’s Reformation

Series: Insurgents MC Series

by Chiah Wilder

 

Release: June 18, 2019

 

Genre: MC Romance

 

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/46350787-animal-s-reformation

 

 

Blurb:

Sometimes the last person you want to be with is the one you can’t be without.

 

A member of the Insurgents MC, Animal is a rough, free-loving biker. Hanging with his brothers, riding his customized Harley, and partying with the ladies are his idea of the ideal life.

Years ago, he made a stupid mistake with a woman he barely knew, but he pays the child support every month and sends cards and presents to his out-of-state daughter on her birthday and on holidays.

He doesn’t want a steady woman, and he certainly isn’t ready to settle down and have a family. Life is just too good now, and there are always so many women who want to come and play with this rugged biker.

Then one afternoon, the mother of his child struts into the clubhouse with his daughter in tow and tells him she’s done. She walks away, leaving Animal and Lucy staring at each other.

What’s he supposed to do? He knows about bikes and hard partying, not seven-year-old girls.

He has to change his ways, and his new hot next-door neighbor isn’t helping to keep his libido in check. The way her long dark hair swings just above her sweet behind has him thinking all kinds of nasty thoughts, but she doesn’t give him the time of day.

What’s up with that?

Olivia Mooney is very aware of her neighbor’s good looks and his finely chiseled body, but she doesn’t want to get involved.  He doesn’t realize it, but she’s his daughter’s tutor at school, and she can’t get involved. She spends her nights thinking about him and chatting with an intriguing man on an after dark dating site.

Then a series of murders occur in the surrounding counties, and it looks like they are creeping closer to Pinewood Springs. At first the cops are stumped, but over time a pattern begins to emerge: the women all used an after dark dating site.

As fear and danger slink closer, Olivia is thrown into the arms of the sexy biker, forever changing their lives.

The Insurgents MC series are standalone romance novels. This is Animal’s story. This book contains violence, abuse, strong language, and steamy/graphic sexual scenes. It describes the life and actions of an outlaw motorcycle club. HEA. No cliffhangers.

Psychological thriller, kept me reading with a bit of a cliffhanger at the end.

Deceitful - Victoria Ellis

This was an interesting read. Some parts were predictable, yet others surprised me. I don't want to give anything away so all I will add is Marlowe had one heck of a time figuring this out with an unanswered question of an ending. It did keep me turning pages.

I received a copy this story through Enticing Journey Book Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.

Standing up to the past helped these two find love

Love Will Save Your Soul - Marie Johnson Katrina Marie Johnson

I enjoyed this story. Sophia should her inner strength when she got out of an abusive relationship and found her own independence. Adrian was gruff but a real sweetheart. Together, they found a way beyond their pasts. I loved their interactions with each other and their coworkers as well as Sophia's brother. The secondary characters did make the story fun. I recommend this book.

Release Blitz: On the Surface by Nikki Ash with a giveaway

 

On the Surface

by Nikki Ash

 

Genre: Single Dad Romance

 

Release Date: June 22, 2019

 

Cover designer: Juliana Cabrera with Jersey Girl Designs

Cover photo by Sara Eirew with Eirew Photography

 

 

Goodreads: http://bit.ly/SurfaceGR

 

 

Synopsis

People see what they want to see.  They only view what’s on the surface, and they’re easy to fool. I let them see on the outside that I’m a successful businesswoman. My clothes are designer, my makeup flawless, and I live in a high-rise condo in Lennox Hills. They see perfection, not what lies beneath the surface.

 

The real me, the one I keep hidden is a broken-hearted woman who uses the makeup to hide her tears.  The expensive clothing covers a heart once shattered by love. The walls of my expensive home shelter a lonely woman who hides the fact that deep down she wants to be loved.  A woman who is too scared to risk her fragile heart.

 

For ten years, I’ve managed to hide behind the image of perfection. Only letting people see what’s on the surface.

 

Until I ran into Jase.

 

Now, every raw emotion, every shattered piece of my heart that I buried long ago is exposed outside the protective walls of my high-rise condo.  No matter how hard I try, I can’t keep the walls from crumbling. He sees me beyond the image that I’ve created. He says he can handle what’s below the surface, but can I?

Tale of surviving grief and finding love

Under a Different Sky - Lindsey Iler

I enjoyed this story. It began incredibly sad, young love cut short. The struggles for Hannah and Nick were hard to read. Love has a way of sneaking up and doing as it pleases. These two learned to deal with their lives and the fallout together. This was a wonderful tale of loss, grief, survival, and happiness.

I received a copy of this story through Enticing Journey Book Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.

My life is a mess.

I'm walking around with a black eye. My position on the hockey team is questionable at best, and if that’s not bad enough, I think I'm falling for my dead girlfriend's best friend.

Every day, it's a fight to feel alive, and yet, I drink to numb the pain. Everyone is standing back, watching me fall apart.

Everyone except Hannah. No matter how many times I push, she's there to pull me back. She refuses to let me spiral any deeper. And after one kiss—she’s impossible to ignore.

Unfortunately, it seems she and I aren’t the only thing being kept a secret.

Excerpt:

Her fingers rub against each other like they’re trying to control themselves. Does she want to reach out and touch me? The thought of her being nervous makes me smirk. Her eyes scan up my legs, to my bare chest, and stop on my lips. She bites down on her own, and I can’t help but notice the pink hue on her chest.

She’s losing it. There’s a power in that, an exhilaration that’s hard to ignore. I need to remember to lose the shirt more often.

“I never noticed...” she whispers, moving her hands down to her sides. “I mean, I noticed. I just never...”

“Allowed yourself too long to appreciate it.” I move toward her.

“Right.” Her chest rises and falls rapidly, like she has zero control of herself.

“And what about now? Are you going to allow yourself?” My last step brings me to her feet, and I straddle one leg while standing above her.

Her chin lifts, and her hair skims over her back. “It’s probably not a good idea.”

“Sometimes the bad ideas are the ones that change our lives, Hannah. Let me change everything.” I lean down, inching my lips closer to hers. “I know you said you didn’t want me to kiss you yet, but...”

Blurb:

Earning a full scholarship to King University was my hard earned ticket out of hell. I'm happy to be away from the small town I grew up in and all the equally small minded people who live there.

 

King was going to be my safe haven. A place where I could leave the old me behind and finally grow into the young man my family had desperately tried to hide away.

 

Diving head first into new experiences, new friends, and parties, I didn’t expect to run straight into the one thing I wasn’t ready for.

 

His arms are welcoming, his body is addictive and his lips are heaven. Cole Huxley is everything I could fall in love with, except for one problem... I never wanted to fall for my professor.

Blurb:

When S.W.A.T Sergeant Marcas MacArthur laid eyes on the bronze skin beauty who moved in next door, he swore he wouldn’t touch her. Leading one of the most elite S.W.A.T teams in the state of South Carolina, left no room for relationships. Marcas knew Sarena Rucker was a woman who deserved a man’s last name. She was a temptation he fought to resist and he vowed to stay far away from her. Now if only he could follow his own rules.

 

The emergency room nurse had eyes on her sexy-as-sin neighbor. Sarena had a thing for men in uniforms, and Marcas MacArthur decked out in his S.W.A.T tactical gear made her knees weak. He was the perfect package--sexy, alpha, rugged and intense. She'd lusted after him from afar, and was unaware that he even knew of her existence. But she was ready to make her presence known. Only he made the first move by sauntering over to her, and let his plans for her be known. The sexy cop didn't realize he wasn't the only one that could issue orders. Sarena had a few of her own, and Marcas was determined to meet every one of them.

 

The chemistry between Marcas and Sarena was electrifying, casting a light on the passion that burned between them. There are those lurking back in the shadows, who want nothing more than to extinguish the blaze, and exact revenge on the S.W.A.T officer by taking the one person who made his heart beat again.

 

Marcas is willing to go to extreme measures to protect Sarena. Will he be able to rescue her? Or will Marcas lose the one person who gave him hope for a future?

Blurb:

Allie

 

When I moved to River’s Edge, dating was the last thing on my mind.

I definitely didn’t expect to fall for him.

Jesse Shepherd.  

Popular. Star athlete. Cocky as hell.

You know the type.

But as time passed, I realized there was more lurking beneath that gorgeous exterior.

Secretive. Angry. A little bit broken.

The more I peeled back his layers, the deeper I fell.

Until I slammed headfirst into his sea of lies.

 

Jess

 

I blew my shot.

Pissed everything away—college, lacrosse, my future—only to end up right back where I started in River’s Edge.

I was content to revel in my misery, spending my days drowning in a bottomless pit of booze and girls.

Until I saw her.

Allison Parrish.

Beautiful. Sarcastic. Perpetual bad attitude.

The pretty little distraction from the shit show that was my life.

But the sins of my past were closing in on me, and I learned the hard way that nothing gold can stay.

Excerpt:

“Did you hear that?” I ask.

 

Moving in slowly, he cages me in, bracing his right arm on the wall above my head, his left hand by my hip. He brings his lips close to my ear and I fight the shiver that rolls through me. “It’s probably just your admirer,” he says, his voice hushed and husky. I swallow hard, looking over his shoulder as he nuzzles closer, his nose skimming my neck, then down to my collarbone. My pulse pounds in my ears as he moves back up, his mouth brushing across my cheek, stopping at my parted lips.

 

“Is this convincing?” He asks. He’s so close that I can feel his breath on my lips, and I realize that I want him to do it. I want him to kiss me.

 

I give a slight shake of my head in response.

“No?” He smirks, knowing exactly what he’s doing to me. His left hand leaves the wall to curl around my hip and he presses his chest to mine. “How about this?”

 

“Almost,” I whisper. I wet my lips and the tip of my tongue nearly grazes his bottom lip. His expression goes from playful to heated in an instant, then he’s closing the final distance.

 

It’s soft at first, just a brush of his lips against mine, but soon he’s cupping my face with both hands, tilting my head back as his tongue sweeps into my mouth, his movements confident and skilled. Unhurried and unyielding.

 

My hands find his shirt, pulling him closer as his tongue fucks my mouth. Because that’s exactly what this is. This isn’t kissing. Or maybe it is, and I’ve been kissing the wrong boys.

 

Jesse groans, fitting a firm thigh between my legs, and the need bubbling inside me threatens to boil over at the sensation. But all too soon, he pulls back, leaving me breathless.

 

“Was that convincing enough?”

Tough start but turned into a compelling story

Forever My Own - Raven Featherwood
At first, I had a problem getting into the story. It was a bit jumpy being POV and time periods, and editing errors. I continued to read and encountered a gripping story. There are triggers in this story for some people as well as a lot of steamy scenes. Be prepared. If nothing else, this story enforced the idea that communication is key to a strong relationship. Cat and Fox had a lot to overcome, but together, they succeeded in their journey. I smiled at times, held my breath, and cried over the painful parts. I recommend this story, and I look forward to the next story in this series.

I received a copy of this story through Enticing Journey Book Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.

by Emily March

From New York Times bestselling author Emily March comes Jackson, the newest novel in the critically acclaimed Eternity Springs series.

 

Sometimes it takes a new beginning
Caroline Carruthers thinks she buried her dreams along with the love of her life…until a stranger named Celeste dares her to chase a dream all on her own. Moving to Redemption, Texas, is chapter one in Caroline’s new life story. Opening a bookstore is the next. Finding love is the last thing on her mind as she settles into this new place called home. But when she meets a handsome, soulful man who’s also starting over, all bets are off.

 

to reach a happily-ever-after
Jackson McBride came to Redemption looking only to find himself, not someone to love. Ever since his marriage ended, he’s been bitter. Sure, he used to believe in love—he even has the old song lyrics to prove it—but the Jackson of today is all business. That is, until a beautiful young widow who’s moved to town inspires a change of heart. Could it be that the myth of Redemption’s healing magic is true…and Jackson and Caroline can find a second chance at a happy ending after all?

Excerpt:

 

Chapter One Excerpt


Nashville, Tennessee

Bang. The judge’s gavel fell and officially crushed Jackson McBride’s heart. He closed his eyes. Bleak despair washed over him. Up until this very moment, he hadn’t believed she’d take it this far.

 

He’d thought she’d come to her senses. He’d thought she would recognize that this proposal was not only nonsense, but truly insane. He’d believed that somewhere deep inside of her, she still had a spark of humanity. That she wouldn’t do this to him. To them. He’d been wrong.

 

Damn her. Damn her and the yes-men she surrounded herself with. Damn them all to hell and back.

 

The enormity of what had just happened washed over him. Oh, God, how will

I survive this?

 

On the heels of his anguish came the rage. It erupted hot as lava, and it fired his blood and blurred his vision with a red haze of fury. He’d never hit a woman in his life. Never come close, despite plenty of provocation from her direction. In that moment had she been within reach, he might have lived up her accusations.

 

It scared the crap out of him. That’s what she’s brought me to.

 

Abruptly, he shoved back his chair so hard that it teetered, almost falling over. He strode toward the courtroom exit. “Jackson? Jackson, wait!” his attorney called, hurrying after him.

 

Jackson waved her off and didn’t stop. There was nothing left to be said. Nothing left to be done. No place left to go.

 

No little girl waiting at home to hug and cuddle and kiss good night.

 

The tap on the toes of Jackson’s boots clacked against the tile floor of the courthouse as his long-legged strides ate up the hallway. He shunned the elevator for the stairs and descended three flights at a rapid pace, then headed for the building’s exit. In a foolish bit of positive thinking, he’d driven his SUV to the courthouse this morning. Now the sight of the safety booster seat in the back seat made him want to kick a rock into next week.

He didn’t want to go home to a quiet, empty house. He shouldn’t go to a bar. Alcohol on top of his current mood could be a dangerous combination. Somebody probably would get hurt.

 

He got into the car and started the engine. For a long moment he sat unmoving, staring blindly through the windshield, his hands squeezing the steering wheel so hard that it should have cracked. When his phone rang, he ignored it.

 

A couple of minutes later, it rang a second time. Again, he ignored it. When it happened a third time, he finally glanced at the display to see who was calling. His cousin. Okay, maybe he would answer it.

 

“Hello, Boone.”

 

“How did the hearing go?”

 

Jackson couldn’t speak past the lump in his throat, so he said nothing.

 

Following a moment’s silence, Boone got the message. He muttered a curse, and then said, “I’m sorry, man. So damn sorry.”

 

“Well, it is what it is.”

 

“You can take another run at it.”

 

“Yeah.” In three years. Three years. Might as well be three decades. He cleared his throat and changed the subject. “So, how are things in Eternity Springs?”

 

“Good. They’re good. My friend Celeste Blessing visited my office a few minutes ago and spoke of her granite-headed cousin. Naturally, I thought of you.”

 

“Naturally,” Jackson dryly replied. But he felt a little less alone.

 

“Do you have plans this weekend? I could use your help with something.”

 

Pretty convenient timing. Knowing Boone, he had a spy in the courtroom. But Jackson wasn’t in the position to ignore the bone he’d been thrown. “I’m free. Whatcha got?”

 

“I’d like you to meet me at home.”

 

Jackson straightened in surprise. “You’re going back to the ranch?”

 

“No. Not there. I’m never going back there. However, I am talking about Texas. The Hill Country in particular. A little town west of Austin called Redemption.”

 

“Redemption, Texas?” Jackson repeated. For some weird reason, his heart gave a little skip. “Why there?”

 

“It’s a long story. Too long for a phone call. I’ll give you the entire skinny when I see you. When can you get there?”

 

After today’s debacle, Jackson had absolutely no reason to remain in Nashville. “When do you want me there?”

 

“I’ll be in later today. I’m in Austin now. I’ve been helping a friend with a project. I have a flight back to Colorado Sunday evening. The earlier you can get here the better, but I’ll make anything work.”

 

Jackson figured the distance and the drive time. “I’ll meet you tomorrow afternoon. Where?”

 

“Great. I’ll text you the info when we hang up. Bring camping gear.”

 

When a sound behind him had Jackson glancing up into the rearview mirror and the booster seat caught his notice, he made an instant decision. “Can’t. I’ll be on my bike.”

 

“You’re gonna ride your motorcycle all the way from Nashville?”

 

 

“Yes, I think I am.”

 

“Okay. I’ll bring stuff for both of us.” Boone hesitated a moment and added, “Hang in there, Jackson. It’ll get better.”

 

No, I don’t think it will. “I’ll see you tomorrow.”

 

Jackson ended the call and finally put his SUV in gear and backed out of the parking place. With the distraction of the call behind him, fury returned, and by the time he reached home, he felt like a volcano about to explode.

 

He threw a handful of things into his tail bag, filled his wallet with cash from his stash, and ten minutes after his arrival, he fired up his bike and took his broken heart and headed out of Nashville. He left behind his home, his work, and his one reason for living, his six-year-old daughter, Haley.

Blurb:

FOX:

The minute I met CATRIONA I was lost. Her beauty and innocence called to me like a siren. There was a place inside of me that I didn’t know existed, a place just waiting to be filled with her light, her caring, her heart. But, with one miscommunication, one failed connection, I lost it all, hell I lost more than I even realized.

 

Until four years later when my entire world came crashing down on me, in the form of a precocious three-year-old pixie named Felicity.  I will get my family back, I will earn the trust of the only woman to ever touch my heart.

 

But, as quickly as I start to see a possible happily ever after for my little family, it is all gone, she is gone. See, I am a member of the Road Warrior’s MC and our enemies have my woman, and they are not known for their care of the fairer sex. Somehow, I must find her, then, find a way to help her, because being lost in that mess is sure to leave her broken.

 

CAT:

He was my first, my only, but he abandoned me and our child.  It has taken me years, but I am better, happy even. But now he’s returning home, and I have to find peace with him. But what about our daughter, will he man up and acknowledge his daughter?  After abandoning me in my pregnancy, I don’t know what to expect.

 

Then, as if my troubled past wasn’t filled with enough heartache, I am dragged into a war not of my making and my life will never be the same again.

 

How do you survive something like this?  Will I ever be able to see my child and Fox again?  After what I have become, not likely.
