Kiss Me in Paris by Dmytry Karpov & Kimberly Kinrade

KissMeInParis - Tourbanner

Welcome to my stop for the Kiss Me in Paris blog tour, organized by Grapevine Book Tours.

It was everything I expected, and more!

I was lost in the story of Cade and Winter from the very beginning. They  captured my heart as they captured each other’s. Too often authors take you  through the typical boy meets girl, tragic  separation, and joyful reunion…the  end. With Kiss Me in Paris I found a beautiful story where friendship developed before the realization that love looms in their future. I was allowed to live  Paris through their adventures, see their relationship grow, and watch them fall  in love through the telling of their story through two sets of  eyes.

This  unique viewpoint is what endeared this novel to me and made me a true follower  of this round the globe series! I am so excited about the places I’ll travel and  the people I’ll meet along the way!

The team of  Kimberly Kinrade and  Dmytry Karpov is a winning combination, making writing  magic along the way!

Excerpt:

Awake.

Danny Shanklin woke hyperventilating, his heart trying to punch through his ribs. Opening his eyes, he recoiled. Bright light. Burning red. He twisted.

Got to get away.

Pain.

His right forefinger. It was caught in something. Left hand too. He tried to see what. Saw more burning red. Forced himself to keep looking. The red fractured into a blizzard of pink dots. The pink dots faded into blue.

A rectangle of blue. Right there. Dead ahead.

‘What the…?’ Danny’s mouth was dry as ash.

He felt something solid behind his back. A chair? Was he sitting? His neck throbbed like he’d been stung. He couldn’t slow his breathing. His heart kept hammering.

Where am I? What’s going on?

A scream in the distance. Muffled shouts.

The blue was the sky, Danny realised. The rectangle was a set of open French doors leading out onto a balcony. The buildings across the street lurched into view. Rows of windows glinted in the sunlight. A hot breeze blew in his face.

Danny tried to stand. Faltered. Whatever his hands were caught up in slid sideways with a thud. He felt cold metal in his right hand. His left was entwined in what felt like a strap.

Even before Danny looked down and the object swung fully into focus, he’d already guessed what it was.

A rifle. Its barrel was now aimed down at the floor beside him. His right forefinger was wedged through the weapon’s trigger guard. His left hand was bound up in its shoulder strap.

A Heckler & Koch G36 assault rifle.

But why am I holding it?

Heartbeat still racing. Muscles flexing. Buzzing now. Feeling crazed. Like he’d just been in a fight.

A voice inside him yelled, Move.

Tightening his grip on the rifle, Danny rose and spun. The short corridor behind him was empty. The door at the end was closed.

He kicked away the chair he’d been sitting on. He dropped to one knee and scanned the room. A glass table. A sofa. Expensive furniture all around. An open door led into what looked like a bedroom. No-one in sight.

He glimpsed a flash of white on the ground. His own feet. He was wearing  a pristine pair of Nikes he’d never seen before.

He couldn’t remember anything. Was he hallucinating? Was that what this was? Some kind of a crazy dream?

The sounds of shouts and car horns drifted in on the breeze. A siren wailed. Another scream.

Danny’s eyes locked on the sofa. Someone had been sitting there. He half-glimpsed a memory. A mocking smile on a thickset, hook-nosed blonde man’s face.

Splinters of information pierced Danny’s mind. This was the Ritz Hotel, he remembered. Room 112. Third floor.

But what am I doing here?

More screaming.

Outside.

3D Good Intentions PB FlatScitech Labs was handsomely commissioned by the United States Military to design a revolutionary serum that would create the ultimate soldier.  If successful, the soldier would have an increase in endurance, strength, awareness and overall speed. They would become the true super soldier. That’s if everything went according to plan.

Scitech put its best scientists on the project and gave them a time limit to complete the job or else. With the pressure on and the stakes high, Vincent Masterson and his team put everything they had into the project. . Everything was looking hopeful until an experiment went horribly wrong. The scientists mutated their specimen’s DNA, turning it into something monstrous. Now, life as we know it will never be the same.

As it stands, the only thing that can save them is one of the two things they should be running from.

Can the human race survive being caught in a bloody war between two vicious predators?

REVIEW by V. Dold on 9/20/2013 at http://tbr-io.blogspot.com/2013/09/my-review-of-good-intentions-by.html

D.N. Simmons is so descriptive I swore I was watching a movie and not reading a book. I could virtually see everything happening in my mind as I read it. This is descriptive writing genius! I actually found myself imagining what the zombies would smell like and what they smelled and sensed when they detected a live human. I cannot wait until book 2 when I get to read even more about the Vampires!

The Virus in the book is so aggressive that it is spreading like a literal wild fire and the panic of the humans trying to leave the city and clogging the roadways just creates a zombie smorgasbord all laid out nice and tasty. Imagine living through the first days of the show the walking dead and then make the zombies stronger than a normal human and really, really fast.

I was so drawn into this book that I blew through it in a matter of hours. *Sigh* now I have to wait for the next book to come out, this is going to be a long hard wait.

Dream World, Book 1, by S.J. Hitchcock

Dream World Banner

Dream World. Book 1

By SJ Hitchcock

Genre: YA Romance

Due out: September 20, 2013

Publisher: Freaky Fiction Writing

<><><><><><><><><><><>

Witnessing the death of your mother, she’s your best friend, and blaming yourself…what an unimaginable scenario for a young girl. Yet this is exactly the place we join young Debbie.

The reality of death and grief is something difficult for all ages. Add to that teen-aged angst and the drama associated with school, changing friendships, day dreams of a teen idol and you have the perfect basis of this young adult book.

Ms. Hitchcock’s writing is filled with reality and strength. Her characters are very vivid and easy to relate to. Bring it all together and you have a very enjoyable book and I look forward to reading her upcoming additions to this series.

This book helped me remember those early teen years and the maelstrom of emotions that came with them. I highly recommend it for a young teen audience. It is wonderfully written and was enjoyable. Thank you Ms. Hitchcock for sharing it with us.

Genre: NA Paranormal Romance
Release Date: October 2013
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions

Synopsis

Patricia Allenz was a somewhat typical girl. For the past few months, she’d been busy counting down the months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, and seconds until her first day of college at Port Townsend University, in Washington. Patricia’s life was a simple one as far as she knew. Most of her memories involved her family, which consisted of her younger brother Kellen, and her Abuela Viola. After her grandmother’s death on her sixteenth birthday, Patricia was convinced that day had been the worse day of her life.

Wishful thinking, on her part. On the night before her first day of college classes, her grandmother visits her in a dream. What starts out as a reunion between the two rapidly turns into a complete nightmare.

From that night, forward her path changes from a straight and narrow one to a totally different realm all together. It does not help that along the way the men that she’d loved at one time, or rather centuries ago, are so conflicted that she cannot decide who to trust. Her body craves them both, but her heart only sings to one of their souls.

Patricia is forced to face truths she cannot understand, betrayals from loved ones, and a love so powerful she would die to keep him safe. A new world of archangels, demons, and witches threatens to swallow her whole. She has the choice to run away from the unknown or live up to the title Archangel Princess of Alpheratz forever.

Will Patricia stand up to her fate or will she crumble and fight against what is destined to come?

I live in sunny side Palm Bay, Florida with my two lovely crazies ages five and two, along with my Law Enforcement champ of a husband. I could say that writing novels has been a passion that I’ve always pursued, but I can’t. Writing for me has always been my own secret escape into a land of wonders, opportunities, loves and so much trouble that I sometimes wonder if I need medication for the stories that pop into my head. I am now deciding to share my mystical mind and stories with the world, so that hopefully others may also find that little something extra they’ve been looking for.

Knight Blindness by Chris Karlsen

KnightBlindness HighRes
Ready for battle, Medieval English knight, Stephen Palmer, charges into the French enemy’s cavalry line. Heeding a warning given months before, he hesitates as he comes face-to-face with the knight in the warning. Struck down in the year 1356, he finds himself landing in the year 2013. Grievously wounded, he’s taken to a nearby hospital. Confused by the new world surrounding him, he attempts to convince the staff he’s from another time, only to find they think him mad.

Rescued by friends, who, to his surprise, have also come through time, he must find a way to function in this odd modern England. He is quickly enchanted by the kind Esme Crippen, the young woman hired to tutor him. She too is enchanted by him. Tempted to deepen the relationship, she hesitates thinking him adorable, but mad. He must discover the means for getting her to believe the truth, all the while, unknown to him, he didn’t come forward in time alone. The enemy knight has also traveled to 2013.

French noble, Roger Marchand, doesn’t question why the English knight who charged him hesitated. That fraction of a pause gave him the advantage needed and he brought his sword down upon the Englishman’s helmet hard, unhorsing the knight. He moved to finish the Englishman off when the world changed in a rush of sensations as he is ripped through time.

Seeking a reason for the terrible event, he enters a nearby chapel. There, thinking God has chosen him for a quest to turn French defeat that day in 1356 to victory, he sets out to find the English knight. The man he is convinced holds the key to time. If he returns to the day of the battle, he can warn his king of mistakes that snatched victory from them.

~~~~~~~~~~

Knight Blindness is the first book I’ve read by Chris Karlsen. Although part of the Knights in Time series, it was very easy to read as a stand alone novel. The cast of characters is strong and the writing very clear and concise. It was well researched and the 14th century attributes seem quite authentic.

Two battling knights are thrust into the 21st century just as Marchand strikes the blow that blinds Stephen. Stephen has the added challenge of learning to navigate a completely foreign world and all the changed technology while completely blind. Knight Blindness by Chris Karlsen reminds me of a fairy tale in reverse and the heroine rescues her shining knight in distress.

While I was disappointed with the abrupt ending, it sets up perfectly a fourth novel featuring Marchand and his lady fair. I recommend Knight Blindness to all interested in time travel romance and look forward to reading the previous two books and perhaps many more!

The Goats of Santo Domingo by Robert McEvilla

VBT_TheGoatsOfSantoDomingo_Banner

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

**I am in the process of reading “The Goats of Santo Domingo” and will repost today’s blog, along with my review as soon as it is completed.

Patricia, Room With Books**

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Cover_The Goats of Santo DomingoWhenever John Romero was asked if he was wounded in Vietnam, he always got a confused look when he replied that his eye was lost in Santo Domingo.

A former baseball player with just six weeks left to serve in the army, John’s plans for making a comeback are interrupted when his unit is deployed to the Dominican Republic, and he finds himself in a combat situation. While dodging bullets, he meets a beautiful Dominican woman, the aloof, Ramona. She inflames the private passions of the paratroopers that view her from their command post. Romero plots a course to win her affections, but the political intrigue and the carnage in the streets of Santo Domingo conspire to thwart his every move, forcing him to make a drastic decision.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt:

A coil of concertina wire stretched down the middle of the street between the sandbags Romero stood behind and her turquoise house. Behind him was a schoolhouse that his unit had occupied since their arrival. The old structure reminded Romero of the Alamo.

“Keep your eye on that house,” Rosen had said to him. “You’ll see her if you get posted at the sandbags; she comes out every morning around nine and reads a book for half an hour—a real beauty queen.”  Romero had heard the other men in his squad talking about her.  They referred to her as Miss Santo Domingo, the Princess, or the Dominican Damsel.

The door opened on the brightly painted stucco house.  She wore a short white skirt, the hem well above the knee.  The lawn chair she held was unfolded with a nobility of motion, the way a virtuoso opens his violin case.  She sat down, crossed her shapely legs, and opened a book before setting it daintily on her lap.  For a confused moment, Romero was convinced she was Carla.  He stepped out from behind the sandbags and was a few strides off the curb before the coiled barbs stopped him.  The closer view made him see that it wasn’t Carla after all.  She was somebody else—a stranger—both mysterious and recognizable.  She was perhaps Miss Swanson, his fourth grade teacher to whom he had written his first love letter and hid it in his school bag.  There was a bit of Anna about her, too, the little girl who’d lived across the street from him when he was twelve.  She was someone who had once held him tight, but not close enough—someone who had left and gone away.

A real Spanish Contessa, he thought.

Lethal Journey
A Short Novel Thriller

Release Date: December, 2013
                          Pre-order in October

A killer lurks in the shadows of Hyde Park, New York…waiting.

Manhattan District Attorney, Lauren Taylor, is about to take on the most important case of her career, prosecuting Gino Valdina, acting mob boss of New York’s most influential crime syndicate.

For three decades, Gino Valdina has led New York’s Valdina crime family. Since his recent indictment for murder, the leadership of the family is in turmoil, appalled by the death of one of their own, Gino’s wife, Madelina. Without the support of the family behind him, Valdina will do anything to save himself.

But Lauren soon discovers, things aren’t always as they seem when she’s tossed into a mystery, a deadly conspiracy that reaches far beyond the criminal underworld and a journey into the past makes her a target…and anyone she’s ever loved.

___________________________________________________

Excerpt:

Eric slowed the Mustang to a crawl and searched the street for his informant, Jimmy Flame. This part of Brooklyn had it all―garbage, graffiti and gangs―a snake pit where debts were paid in blood. As it turned out, he spotted the lanky twenty-something-drug-dealer strolling up the sidewalk.

Eric didn’t trust the scar-faced kid dressed in clothes three sizes too big, but Jimmy knew the streets and somehow stayed clear of the gangs. A real miracle. He also knew Jimmy would be discreet, if he knew what was good for him.

Eric pulled the car over and stopped. Jimmy looked him square in the eye, turned, and kept walking.

Eric got out of the car and snatched the back of Jimmy’s shirt. “We need to talk.” He whirled him around.

“Hey, you promised you’d only come around at night.” Jimmy scanned up and down the street clearly worried someone might see him with a cop.

“It’s important. Get in.”

Jimmy hopped in the car and scrunched down low in the passenger seat.

Eric started the car and glanced at Jimmy’s low riding jeans. “How the hell can you wear those baggy-ass pants? They should be outlawed.”

“What man? You don’t like my gear? These pants are sick.” Jimmy ran his hand over his knee. “What’s so important?”

“Heard anything about prosecutor Stephen Taylor or the new district attorney?” Jimmy kept one hand clutched on the door handle.

Convinced the kid might bolt if he had the chance, Eric sped up.

“I ain’t heard nothing on the DA, but―”

“If you know something, spit it out. I’m not in the mood for games.” Eric glanced at him,

Jimmy’s shaved head glistened with sweat in the early morning sun.

“Man you’re gonna get me killed.” Jimmy sank back into the seat, his fingers tightened around the handle of the door. “Some dude was looking for someone to put the scare into Taylor and the DA. I never saw him, but one of my boys told the guy to hit the road. The deal didn’t smell right. Something was way off.”

“How did Paul Cassico end up dead?”

Jimmy lit a cigarette and took an extra-long drag. “Cassico is a small-time bookie, you know, neighborhood shit, horse races and fights. Valdina learned the guy would be cooperating with the feds so Valdina had one of his crew take him out.”

“Did Cassico ever mention who killed my father?”

“The stupid shit went around flappin’ his gums. Said he knew who shot the cop in the warehouse drug deal. He also said he’d make a large stash when he went to the cops.”

Eric’s heart pounded. “Did he give a name, Jimmy?”

“Nope.”

“I need to find the shooter.”

“I don’t wanna get involved with Valdina’s boys. You’re talking Mafia. Man, I’m too young to die.”

Eric could tell by the quiver in the kid’s voice, he was scared. Something he’d never seen before. “Has someone threatened you?”

“Not yet. They will as soon as I start asking questions.”

“You’re smart. You’ll find a way to get the info.” Besides, you piss me off, I’ll drag your drug-pedalling ass off to jail. You understand?”

Jimmy remained silent for a moment. “Man, you’re a hard-ass.”

“Find out what you can.” Eric steered the car into an empty parking lot and tossed fifty bucks at him. “I’ll be back in a couple of days and watch your back.”

As Eric pulled away, he heard Jimmy call him an asshole. Okay, he deserved that. And yeah, he was tough on the kid when he needed to be. It was all part of the job. He liked Jimmy, but he’d never admit it. From what he just witnessed, Jimmy was scared shitless and that worried Eric even more.

Rose of Thorne by Mia Michelle

Blurb:

When a drunk driver tragically orphans Skylar Rose at the age of sixteen, she leaves her dreams behind and takes on the daunting task of helping her elderly grandmother raise her young sister. While other girls her age were living a typical carefree life, she was picking up double shifts at a local café and struggling to pay the bills.

Always putting her sister’s needs and school first, Skylar has never had time to date or develop relationships. Now a senior in college, she has her sights set on an amazing internship opportunity. The last thing she needed was for a sexy distraction like Sebastian Thorne to walk into her life. 

Sebastian Thorne had been an entitled and reckless nineteen year old when he got behind the wheel of his new sports car that night. When his night of indulgence goes tragically wrong, Sebastian hesitantly turns to the one person, he knows can make everything go away…the one person he hates ..his father.

Now twenty-six, Sebastian is the young enigmatic and powerful CEO of his late father’s design company, Thorne Enterprises. With both millions in the bank and a new woman on his arm almost every night, the world never knew the dark secret he carried inside. Still plagued with nightmares from the night of that horrific accident and having to leave the beautiful girl behind, Sebastian vows to find the one that haunts his dreams. Sometimes the choice of revisiting our past opens the door to a future that we never thought possible.

Haunted by their past, these two want nothing more than to have their life given back to them. But what do you do when the person who gave you back your life, was the very one that took it from you in the first place?

Knight Blindness by Chris Karlsen

KnightBlindness HighRes
Ready for battle, Medieval English knight, Stephen Palmer, charges into the French enemy’s cavalry line. Heeding a warning given months before, he hesitates as he comes face-to-face with the knight in the warning. Struck down in the year 1356, he finds himself landing in the year 2013. Grievously wounded, he’s taken to a nearby hospital. Confused by the new world surrounding him, he attempts to convince the staff he’s from another time, only to find they think him mad.

Rescued by friends, who, to his surprise, have also come through time, he must find a way to function in this odd modern England. He is quickly enchanted by the kind Esme Crippen, the young woman hired to tutor him. She too is enchanted by him. Tempted to deepen the relationship, she hesitates thinking him adorable, but mad. He must discover the means for getting her to believe the truth, all the while, unknown to him, he didn’t come forward in time alone. The enemy knight has also traveled to 2013.

French noble, Roger Marchand, doesn’t question why the English knight who charged him hesitated. That fraction of a pause gave him the advantage needed and he brought his sword down upon the Englishman’s helmet hard, unhorsing the knight. He moved to finish the Englishman off when the world changed in a rush of sensations as he is ripped through time.

Seeking a reason for the terrible event, he enters a nearby chapel. There, thinking God has chosen him for a quest to turn French defeat that day in 1356 to victory, he sets out to find the English knight. The man he is convinced holds the key to time. If he returns to the day of the battle, he can warn his king of mistakes that snatched victory from them.

Kiss Me in Paris by Dmytry Karpov and Kimberly Kimrade

KMiP 99cent Sale Banner

It was everything I expected, and more!

I was lost in the story of Cade and Winter from the very beginning. They  captured my heart as they captured each other’s. Too often authors take you  through the typical boy meets girl, tragic  separation, and joyful reunion…the  end. With Kiss Me in Paris I found a beautiful story where friendship developed before the realization that love looms in their future. I was allowed to live  Paris through their adventures, see their relationship grow, and watch them fall  in love through the telling of their story through two sets of  eyes.

This  unique viewpoint is what endeared this novel to me and made me a true follower  of this round the globe series! I am so excited about the places I’ll travel and  the people I’ll meet along the way!

The team of  Kimberly Kinrade and  Dmytry Karpov is a winning combination, making writing  magic along the way!

Patricia, Room With Books, September 2, 2013

About Kiss Me in Paris

Kiss Me in Paris by Karpov KinradeNo one knows my secret. Ever since high school, ever since I started living in fear, no one has known the true me. But then I met him, and I couldn’t hide anymore.

He became my hero, saving me from the villain of my past. He became my friend, his smile a blanket of warmth. And he scared me. Because he, this beautiful man, he might become more. Then he’d see the real me, and I couldn’t let that happen.

My name is Winter, and what I desire most I can’t have.

Flashes of the night I was drugged rush back to me. His strong arms carrying me through the streets of Paris. The feel of his heart beating as my head rested against his chest. The soft press of his lips against my forehead when he thought I was asleep.

Oh shit. I’m falling for the cowboy. Cade.

But we can’t be anything more. He has his own secrets. His own darkness he keeps hidden, like the letter he keeps with him everywhere he goes.

The letter he refuses to open.

Cover of Darkness by Gregory Delaurentis

Click here to see the fantastic book trailer for Cover of Darkness by Gregory Delaurentis:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dJ10pSUwaM

VBT Cover of Darkness Banner copy

A high profile murder of a Wall Street executive in Westchester pits three people against the criminal underbelly of Manhattan nightlife. The key players are two ex-cops turned private investigators—Kevin Whitehouse, whose sharpest tool is his keen analytical mind, and David Allerton, a former Special Forces operative—and Margaret Alexander, Kevin’s lover. In their search for a killer, they are forced to travel to the edge of sanity and morality, while stumbling onto their own confusing secrets as well. The Cover of Darkness is a gritty noir saga that untangles a web of deceit in the course of tracking down a brutal murderer.

MEDIA KIT Cover of Darkness_Ebook

David first opened the door to a closet on the left, searching it with the gun muzzle, before approaching the door at the end of the hall and kicking it open. An angry, naked man stood on the other side, his anger changing to fear in seconds once he beheld the gun pointing in his direction.

“Get back into bed,” David ordered.

The pale-bodied man responded as he staggered backward. The foot of the bed struck the back of his knees, sending him seated on the mattress. The woman on the bed had by this time covered herself with the sheets, and curled her legs up.

While Kevin stood nervously in the doorway, David searched the room and the closets, the muzzle of the shotgun again serving as a probe, but found no one.

“What the…?” Chase asked David.

After searching through the room, David tossed the shotgun to Kevin.

Suddenly, Chase went white-hot heat, crawling backward into the arms of his woman in sheer panic screaming, “What do you want?!

“I want information,” David demanded, going to the foot of the bed, standing before them with Kevin directly behind him. “I want to know who whacked Osterman.”

How am I to know?!” Chase shouted back. His hair was a wild tangle, his eyes wide as saucers with fright.

“Don’t yell at me,” David said calmly. “I want answers. I’m not interested in killing you.”

“You bust into my crib and start throwing guns around. You’re crazy, man, what do you think I’m thinking?”

“You were moving dope for Osterman,” David persisted, ignoring Chase’s remarks.

Osterman! He jerked me.”

“With the Colombians.”

“Damn right.”

“And you didn’t like that.”

No, I didn’t.”

“So, you had one of your soul brothers do him in.”

“Oh hell, no. My people don’t kill. We don’t mess with weapons like you do.”

“And the reason for that?”

“More jail time . . . What are you? A cop?”

“Don’t worry about what I am,” David growled back. “You are moving weight. I want to know what happened after Osterman jerked you.”

“He jerked me. That’s all.”

“That’s all? You didn’t go to the Colombians? Liar!”

“Yes, yes, I did that!” Chase corrected. “I went to the Colombians as soon as I knew he jerked me. I begged them to give me another chance. They said they would, if I replaced their one hundred kilos. One hundred kilos! How do I do that?”

“Put bullets into Osterman for revenge.”

“How is that going to get me my one hundred kilos?”

“Let me explain it to you, genius. The Colombians trust Osterman enough to give him a heavy shipment. You find it, whack him, and take his shipment back to the Colombians. Paid in full.”

Chase thought that over for a second or two. “But that’s not what happened.”

“Convince me otherwise.”

The word “Freeze!” were suddenly heard from the doorway. David frowned as he glanced over his shoulder to see a scruffy looking black male, armed with his own shotgun.

AUTHOR INFORMATION:

Gregory Delaurentis spent his adult life roaming from job to job, working for Lockheed in California, various law firms in New York, and financial firms on Wall Street. Throughout this period of time, he was writing—unceasingly—finally producing a large body of work, albeit unrecognized and unpublished . . . until now. Cover of Darkness is the first in a series of upcoming books that include Edge of Darkness, Pale of Darkness and Cries of Darkness. These novels follow the lives of three individuals who do battle bringing criminals to justice, while they struggle to understand the complex relationships that exist among themselves. This intriguing trio has absorbed the attention of Mr. Delaurentis for the past year and a half, so much so he decided to self-publish their stories to bring them to a wider audience.

Becoming Invisible (The Alaskan Heart Saga) by Tiffany Carmouche’

Cover

Becoming Invisible is the third book The Alaskan Heart Saga, a Contemporary New Adult Series about finding unexpected love and a woman’s fight for survival.

Passion. ..Obsession. ..Love…Loss.

When fire consumes the Carlisle’s home and an obsessed serial killer continues to hunt Nicole and her family, Dylan and Bradley realize the only way to keep them alive is to help them become… invisible.

https://www.facebook.com/events/394795043973368/ release party

Tiffany Carmouche’ has mastered the art of the suspenseful thriller! Had my husband and German Shepherd not been sitting here as I read the last of Becoming Invisible tonight, I never would have been able to finish it!

The rich blend of love and romance combined with “the fear of breathing” tension had me captivated from the first words. Becoming Invisible feels the culmination of The Alaskan Hearth Saga as I convinced myself that I finally know how this is really going to end midway through this book. Then I get pulled up short by another brilliant cliff-hanger that leaves me literally screaming “You have got to be kidding” when I realize this is the last page my beloved Kindle will be feeding to me.

Tiffany’s characters are so compelling, so real life that I was breathing when they breathed, loving when they loved, crying when they cried and bleeding when they bled.

I will be counting down the days, the weeks or the months until Tiffany Carmouche’ releases the next morsel of The Alaskan Heart Saga.

Getting to know author Tiffany Carmouche ~

Which six words would you use to describe yourself?

Sassy, persistent, dreamer, romantic, spontaneous, too trusting (okay that is seven opps)

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

Me? I’m a single mother… a survivor… a dreamer… a hopeless romantic… and an adventurer…

Best Selling Author Tiffany Carmouche has been given the title, The Queen of The Cliffhanger and Best Unknown Author You Need to Discover. When Tiffany Carmouché is not writing suspenseful romance novels, you can find her sculpting, traveling, teaching, singing, dancing, escaping in music or enjoying her family.

From skydiving in Alaska to scuba diving in Hawaii, Carmouché has traveled the world seeking adventure and it is apparent in the books she writes. Her adventures include riding camels in Africa, swimming under the stars in Puerto Rico, dancing salsa in Ecuador, and walking the cobblestone roads of Assisi, Italy. She has also found fulfillment working with the disabled and orphans in Argentina and Mexico. Her most cherished moments, however, have been watching her two beautiful daughters grow and strive to accomplish their own dreams.

Despite all of these amazing experiences, she has survived many struggles. There was a time she felt defeated, but now she is recommitted to savoring experiences both in the novels she writes and in the life she lives each day. Her secret hope is that anyone who is struggling will realize there is a light at the end of the tunnel and no matter how hard the fight, no matter how many times they have been knocked down, it is always worth staggering up to their feet and learning to breathe again.

Death Dealer by Ashley Robertson

Title: Death Dealer

Author: Ashley Robertson

Genre: Adult Paranormal

Tour Host: Lady Amber’s Tours

DD Banner

*ASHLEY ROBERTSON—2013 NATIONAL INDIE EXCELLENCE AWARDS FINALIST*

Death: a word Mia Baron was all too familiar with since the murder of her parents when she was a young girl. Her drive for vengeance was the reason she became a Death Dealer—a soul guide through the spirit realm—signing her life away in her own blood. Pain forged a concrete wall around her heart and no one or nothing would ever penetrate it…until she got what she desired most—revenge.

Deacon Gage craves justice for his own horrific tragedy that forced him into the same life Mia chose, with the same promise of vengeance dangling just out of reach. His expert training makes him an Elite—one of the few Death Dealers to ever achieve such a status—and no one can shift his focus from the blood he seeks.

But when the two are partnered for yet another job and a heart-shattering case rips open Mia’s heart, Deacon realizes he’s the only one who can save her…at a price that might be too much to pay: opening his heart to her. The clock is ticking and her life hangs on the balance of whether he can truly let go or will hold onto his desire for blood.

Sneak Peek of Chapter 1: http://ashleyrobertsonbooks.com/2013/06/18/death-dealer-sneak-peek-chapter-1-cover-reveal/

 

eBook Cover

5.0 out of 5 stars Death Dealer July 1, 2013
Format: Kindle Edition
I absolutely love Death Dealer. Of course I love anything written by Ashley Robertson, however, this one was a little out of the norm for genre when it comes to Ashley but she still didn’t disappoint. The world and story Ashley brought with Death Dealer was EPIC! The characters seemed so much more real than most even if it was Paranormal, they still were dealing with things that would hit home with a lot of people in today’s society and I think that’s what made this story that more awesome. I think I have been waiting for a book to blow me away, I haven’t read one in a while, I’ve read some really good books and even some that deserved 5 stars but its been a while since I have read a book that leaves me with a book high and wanting more. I love that there was no big cliff hanger but you still knew there was more to come. I cant wait to read the next in this series.
Mia Baron and Deacon Gage have been working as partners for a while now, however, they never really knew one another outside of work. That is til Mia was handed the one thing she had been waiting for, her own Justice for her parents murder. She soon finds out that she wasn’t the only Death Dealer given the same deal or that has lost loved ones however she soon finds out the Justice she seeks may not be as satisfying as she imagined. As if that’s not hard enough she has to fight off all kinds of monsters in order to perform her job and that could cost her, her life.

Dance With the Enemy by Linda Boulanger

Dance With the Enemy by Linda Boulanger

From the very first words I found myself lost in the story of Dance With the Enemy. For me it is an “Oh my goodness” book. I haven’t read romance novels in a number of years because they had become so “ho hum” in plot. Girl meets boy, they fall in love, something happens, and so on and so on. You know how they go. Dance With the Enemy by Linda Boulanger is anything but “ho hum”!

The idea of sailing off to meet the man you were “marked” to be with is such a romantic notion. There is one person on the earth to whom you belong, you share their blood, you will meet him and be immediately taken with him…it is every fairy tale ever written. But not in Dance With the Enemy. I won’t spoil the story for you, you really must read it for yourself!

Tahruk is a strong, powerful warrior, capable and respected in his community. Elenya is a beautiful and proud woman, filled with courage and new ideas, the hope of her people. The sparks fly from the moment the marking takes over. He chases, she runs. He softens, she balks. Their love is challenging from the very beginning. Their entire traditional way of life will come into question.

This is a novel to read, then read again as you all in love with the characters Linda Boulanger has created. Watch for the twists and turns and enjoy this beautifully written book. I am so excited by the coming of a second novel in this series later this year. Thank you, Linda, for taking the time to share your gift of the written word!

Broken Prince by Jen Wylie

Broken Prince by Jen Wylie

Broken Prince is the second book in The Broken Ones Series by Jen Wylie. I felt I needed to read book one, Broken Aro, before I could give an thorough review, and I am sure glad I did. Without the first book of the series I would have found myself frequently scratching my head.

I love to read a book series one right after the other as I am impatient while waiting for the next book to be released in a series that I love. Broken Prince proved to be no exception, but once again, it ended too soon.

Broken Prince is full of great action and adventure as Arowyn and the survivors travel from each new encounter to the next. Their quest to get Prince back to his homeland takes this group from brushes with new magical creatures and from good to evil, but each engagement adds to the depth and development of this story.

Jen Wylie is a n incredibly talented writer and Broken Prince is a pearl of a novel! I don’t wish to provide any spoilers, but Broken Prince will have you running a broad spectrum of emotions, including impatience for more!

Bravo Jen Wylie! Broken Prince is bound to be a New Adult and Fantasy bestseller.

My Highland Lord by Tarah Scott

My Highland Lord by Tarah Scott

Not having read MY HIGHLAND LOVE of the Highland Lord Series, I decided to read it before embarking on my review of MY HIGHLAND LORD and I was very glad I did.

Tarah Scott is a true wordsmith! Her writing is descriptive and her characters are full of depth, very real and quite amusing! The stories are very well thought out and have a great feel of the times. I was able to lose myself completely in the lords and ladies, the soirees, the pomp and circumstance, and most importantly, the rules of the times.

A case of mistaken identity leads Kiernan to save Phoebe from highwaymen and subsequently kidnap her himself. As Phoebe attempts to gain her freedom she thinks herself to be one step ahead, but finds herself ultimately one step behind Kiernan. They travel, meeting interesting characters along the way that add to the reality of the times. From the very beginning the sparks begin to fly. The story is fraught with intrigue, adventure and ultimately, true love.

I can’t wait for the next book in the Highland Lord Series by Tarah Scott.

Descent by Cameo Ranae

Descent by Cameo Renae

Descent, a prequel to the Hidden Wings Series is the perfect journey back to the beginning! It’s a captivating look into the creation of the Hidden Wings Series.

Descent connects the dots between Angels, the Fallen and a deep cast of characters. It explains the love that should never have been. It brings us through the story of how Alaine and Samuel found each other and what ripped them apart. I loved, I cried and I hated along with them all. I’m emotionally invested and can’t wait for more! Cameo Renae does it again by explaining everything so perfectly!
