Book One:
Violca Grey knows life can change instantly. Two years after her parents’ sudden death, Violca is left raising her four younger sisters. She doesn’t realize that their lives are all in danger from something that may not be human. Chase Reed knows the Grey sisters possibly hold the key to his fate. He is determined to get close, protect them and bring them to his Dragon King.

Together, Chase and Violca not only have to protect their families—they also have to fight against their rising feelings for each other. But what Violca doesn’t know is that once a dragon decides he wants something, there is no stopping him from getting it.

Book Two:
The moment Aithne’s mother told her that her sister had been captured by the infamous Vampire, King Lazzaro—she should have known it was a trap. In order to get her sister back, she is given one simple, but dangerous task. She has to capture a dragon-shifter and bring him back to the King. It should be easy, a simple exchange—her sister’s life for that of a dragon. Nothing is ever what it seems and soon she finds herself drawn to the very people that she may be forced to betray.

As King of the Dragons, Viktor’s one true goal is to keep his people safe. His old friend Chase has become the first dragon-shifter in centuries to find his mate. His people are finally starting to have hope that balance can be restored with the newfound Earth witch sisters. Keeping them close, he finds himself intrigued when they begin a friendship with a beautiful and mysterious new redhead.

Into the Tomorrows by Whitney Barbetti

I was born in sadness, 
which was just the beginning of a solemn and desolate life. I’m no stranger to painnone of us are. The night I held my best friend’s hand as she died, I understood true agony. And I never thought I’d feel happiness again.
But that was so long ago…
Moving to Colorado to be with Colin, my high school sweetheart, was the perfect way to start over and rekindle what had begun to fizzle. I wanted that spark to ignite, to burn in passion and desire. Instead, I found myself falling for Jude, my boyfriend’s roommate. He’s the only person who understands my soul, who can breach the walls I’ve built. But I can’t have him.  
Because I’m Trista Kohl, and my destiny is sorrow.

There But For The Grace by Jeffrey Cook & A.J. Downey

Title: There But For The Grace
Series: Angel’s Grace #2
Authors: Jeffrey Cook & A.J. Downey
Release Date: March 8th 2016


Tabbris, the Angel of Free Will,
is in Hell…


Worse, the keys to the gates
of Heaven and Hell have gone with him. Now, the hounds of Hell are close on his
heels as he fights a desperate battle to keep the keys out of infernal hands,
while trying to reach Earth once again. At least he prevented Adelaide from
being dragged down with him.


Meanwhile, Adelaide is still
possessed by the Angel of Visions, and Iaoel seems to be planning to stay,
regardless of what Addy wants. Now she’s in search of a rogue angel to find a
way into the underworld to rescue Tabbris…

Before all Hell breaks loose…

“This is it?” I asked and huffed out a dubious sigh.

“It’s a prison. It ain’t the Ritz, Baby.”

I glanced over at Uriel and narrowed my eyes, “When Gabriel
does it, it’s funny, and almost cute. When you do it, you look like a jock

His eyebrows disappeared into his fiery ginger hairline, and
his lips spread into a giant smile as he struggled not to laugh.

“Uriel,” Raphael’s lyrical voice came from behind the both
of us, “Michael has asked us not to encourage her crude behavior.”

“You always do what Daddy tells you to do, Raphael?” I
asked, turning.

Raphael gave me a smile that was beatific in nature, as
serene and unblemished as the silver glass of a lake on a calm day. One of the
most peaceful things I had ever seen. I blinked when he answered me, “Yes,
Child… but do remember, Michael is not our father.” He pointed one elegant,
long finger skyward. “He is, and always will be.”

I rolled my eyes heavenward. “Yeah, sorry. You guys really
don’t get us at all though, do you?”

Uriel shrugged. “We try.” He side-eyed Raphael. “Some of us
harder than others.”

“Right.” I took a deep breath and let it out slowly,
returning to the problem at hand, “How am I supposed to break into a prison?”

We stood alongside the road leading up to the prison gates,
a long, lonely stretch of cracked blacktop, the center lines so faded they were
barely there. Two lanes, one in, one out, nothing but scorched and waving
unkempt grass, no more than knee height for almost as far as the eye could see.
Even if a man managed to escape, he’d be easy pickings out in that grass. It
was a sad, lonely, and desolate place to spend your last days. I wondered how
on Earth Haziel had become an inmate here. How the fuck I was going to get in?
Did they even allow death row inmates visitors? I mean, random ones…

“There,” Uriel said, and I followed his pointing finger. An
old Mercedes, something out of the 1980s, was stopped behind what looked like
the last in a series of chain link gates topped with razor wire, as it trundled
aside. The Mercedes waited until the gate was all the way open, pulled through,
shifted gears and headed up the road in our direction.

Uriel and Raphael stood with me on the side of the two lane
highway. They had assured me we were quite invisible to the humans inside the
prison. They said that was one of Raphael’s stronger gifts: to obfuscate. Being
a healer, obfuscation during the heat of battle was kind of a necessity. I’d
asked him why he hadn’t done a better job in the battle beneath Chernobyl and
he’d smiled a little sadly and had told me that with the state of things as
they were, he’d had little to no energy to expend on obfuscation, that he had,
instead, relied on Uriel to defend him and the rest of the healers. It’d made
me a little ill to think of the implications in that. I’d voiced my theory

“Were we really that outnumbered?”

“My dear child,” he’d said, “We are fortunate that none of
the Archen fell during such a fight. Our Father, was with us, so it seems.”

I looked from Uriel to Raphael and back to the Mercedes
coming our direction. The Archangels both looked expectant, and I sighed
inwardly. Not for the first time, I wished that Gabriel were here instead of
these two. Mostly because Gabriel was at least familiar, and we kind of got
each other. I looked from Uriel to Raphael one more time and followed their
eyes to the oncoming Mercedes. The car pulled up, and I looked at the driver, a
priest: black shirt, white collar and all. He turned his head and looked right
at us curiously, before pulling past and driving on. I blinked stupidly. Damn

“I thought we were invisible to anything human,” I said with
a sinking feeling.

“We are.” Raphael’s serene smile stretched, and I really
wanted to smack it off his face.

“Then was that..?” I pointed after the Mercedes.

“It was.” Uriel’s smirk was even more infuriating.

“Seriously, guys?”

I ground my teeth and watched the taillights fade into the
gathering twilight before turning on the two Archangels.

“Now what do I do?” I asked, and it sounded petulant even to

“Well, I guess you wait for him to come back,” Uriel said
with a wink, and then they both winked—right out of existence.

“Oh you happy bastards!” I cried, then wondered if I were
suddenly visible to the guards that were mere dots in the towers to either side
of the distant gate. I had to assume I wasn’t, and that I was still hidden from
sight or invisible or whatever when no one came out to investigate When the
shift change came? Well, the cars that passed me by, not a single one of the
occupants turned to look at me, so that confirmed my hypothesis.

“You guys are such assholes,” I muttered under my breath to
myself. I wondered briefly to myself: if you prayed to someone and cursed them
the fuck out in your prayers, would they hear it? I unshouldered my pack,
dropping to sit cross-legged on the edge of the road and prayed to who

“I’m not giving up, Tab. This is some serious bullshit, but
I promise, no matter what crap they pull, I’m going to get you out.” I felt
stupid talking to myself, but I had to believe that somehow, some way, he could
hear me. I didn’t know how well prayers travelled to Hell specifically, but I
had to have faith that they did, that he knew I wasn’t giving up.

I looked up to the sky and huffed out a breath at the cloud
cover. Of course it couldn’t be a clear night full of stars. Why wouldn’t I get
rained on? Let’s make this whole fucked-up situation as cliché as possible! No
sooner had I thought it, than the first drop splattered against my cheek.

“Aw, damn it!” I uttered. I rooted through my pack and
satchel to no avail: nothing that would serve as rain gear, of course. I
cinched up the pack quickly, so at least I might have a dry set of clothes to
change into later, when the slide and snap of nylon against nylon made me jerk
my head up. Gabriel smiled down at me, a large golf umbrella open above us.

“Thanks,” I said with a gusty sigh and pulled myself up to
my feet. I pulled my pack back up onto my shoulders to keep it off the ground
while the rain pattered down around us, picking up in intensity.

“Particular reason why he didn’t stop and why Raphael and
Uriel just left me out here?” I asked.

“Yes, you know there is. We don’t tend to do things without
a reason.”

“Care to fill me in?” I rubbed my hands over my face and
sighed out. Gabriel, who loved to gender bend with the best of them, had chosen
to show up as a dude this time around and, as always, was impeccably dressed in
a suit and tie.

“Haziel and the Archangels don’t have the best rapport.”

“Seriously? No wonder he didn’t even slow down. That’s
great, that’s just great… why would he stop for me tomorrow?”

“Because tonight, he is working to find out who you are, and
when he can’t do that, and when he finds you here all alone tomorrow… hopefully
his curiosity will get the better of him.”

“Jesus, Gabriel! Why couldn’t you guys have just left me
alone out here in the first place? Why didn’t you guys just say, ‘Hey Addy, when
the priest drives by, flag him down. That’s the dude you need!’ I mean,
wouldn’t that have saved so much more time?” Time. Time that could be better
spent getting Tab out of Hell. I didn’t want to leave him down there any longer
than I had to. It wasn’t fair. It just wasn’t fair!

“Easy, Addy,” Gabriel put his hand on my leather-clad
shoulder and gave it a gentle squeeze. He’d used my name, which meant we were
being super serious, which was good. This was as serious as it got.

“We didn’t know where on death row Haziel was. We couldn’t
be sure. Standing out here was recon as much as anything else. He gave himself
away when he looked at you guys. Truthfully, we’re almost as blind as you in
all this, and your guess is as good as ours.”

I threw my head back and stared at the inside of his
umbrella, it was growing so dark that I could barely see the silvery spiderlike
legs of the metal skeleton above us. I prayed for patience, and for Tab to hold
on, but mostly I prayed to God that Haziel would talk to me. Give me a
direction to move forward with. I had to find Tab, I had to help him, and I had
such a feeling of urgency surrounding it all that it wasn’t even funny.

Finding Me by Dawn Brazil

Finding Me Release Launch BannerToday is the re-release for Finding Me by Dawn Brazil, the first installment in the Finding Me trilogy. This YA Fantasy cover was designed by Yosbe Designs.

About the Book

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000037_00023]Sixteen-year-old Chloe Carmichael’s perfect world is in chaos.
It’s not because she has a vision of her boyfriend murdered and then he’s found dead exactly as foreseen. It’s not because she suddenly has the ability to move objects when she’s upset. It’s kinda cool to close a door without touching it. And it’s most definitely not her overbearing mother, who only cares about appearances. Chloe has already grown quite accustomed to her family’s distance.

So what has Chloe cringing in fear?
It’s having to become another person for a new group of people. She knows she’s not perfect, but apparently she was in another life. In that other life, she was known as Amanda. Amanda was perfect. Chloe, not so much. Her new friends won’t allow her to forget.

Chloe struggles with a love that exposes the soul. It’s a love that defies reason. It’s a love that speaks to her heart and demands attention.

It’s the stench of impending death that hovers over her every move.

It’s that final threat as she tries to acclimate to a life of superhuman proportions.
It’s the enemy she can’t see and doesn’t remember.

And most importantly, it’s never discovering who she really is that truly frightens her.

Her debut novel, Finding Me, book 1 in the Finding Me series, is set to release on March 3rd 2016.

When she is not writing, she can be found with her nose in a book – swooning over another book boyfriend, drying up tears from a recent heartbreak, or shouldering a wound she received in battle. She also loves to create magic in the kitchen, with an array of inspiring dishes she pulls from Pinterest. Dawn lives in South Texas with her sports-obsessed husband, three technology-infatuated teenagers, and her great big colossal imagination.

She is currently editing the final book in the Finding Me series, Becoming Me. The book is set to release the summer of 2016. She is a master juggler and is working on two other Young Adult standalone novels – a high-fantasy tearjerker, and a science fiction story with a romance that will make your heart ache.

Review: Beyond Redemption by Lady J

51ae5dpo4iL._SX311_BO1,204,203,200_ABOUT THE BOOK: What happens when malicious acts change your path in destiny?

Giddeon Cane has become blinded by his obsessive need to find the twisted monsters who’ve destroyed his life, and exact his wrath.
An unexpected and devastating revelation throws him back into his painful past.
Tormented by sins that can never be forgiven, he breaks down and comes face to face with an Angel.
Determined to pull Giddeon out of the darkness where he dwells, Eva fights to give him back his future, a future she desperately needs to be a part of.

Will Giddeon choose the revenge he’s fought so long for?
Or will he choose the Angel who seeks to redeem him?

BOOK LINKS: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads

He thought that maybe if he laid down beside them long enough, God would take him, too. Giddeon was scared and didn’t want to be all alone. What if those monsters came back for him? Giddeon crawled under the worn, faded blanket and laid down between both his parents. He desperately wanted his mother to wrap him up in her protective arms and tell him everything would be okay. He snuggled next to her cold, hard side and wrapped his trembling arms around her. I love you, Mommy. But, he knew nothing would be okay. Not after that day. Not ever again.

REVIEW: Love. Fear. Envy. Pain. Joy. Rage…these emotions run rampant through this story. Book two is a darker novel, primarily surrounding Giddeon and his life up until his breaking point…where he has to make that final decision of what life truly means to him. By delving into his past and making Giddeon relive the painful memories that have haunted him for years, Lady J provides her readers with a tenacious story that is chalked full of physiological hardships, compulsive rage and dangerous secrets—all pointing to one man who has been there all along, controlling his every move. There are quite a few main characters that deserve to be mentioned…Dalton, Giddeon, Behr, Ellora, Gavin, Adelle and Dominick. As this story progresses, their storylines interweave together—outlining their friendships, their hatred, their disillusions and their desire to protect what they love.
Dalton is pure evil, manipulative, deceitful and completely psychotic. Lady J has a way of digging her claws into the situation and grabbing hold of the reader with his deplorable acts. Dalton and Giddeon share a past, a dark and spiteful past that only one can truly be ashamed of. Giddeon takes his past and twists it so badly that he can’t seem to find the right path among so much pain and emotional imbalance—he allows his beast or inner demons to control his emotions to the point of combustion. After the attack on Ellora, Giddeon and Dominick make a pact to avenge his parents by bringing the one person that has started everything…down. Whereas Dominick wants life imprisonment for the bastard, Giddeon wants revenge—the blood of his parent’s attackers, streaming down his arms as he guts the life out of them. Behr, Ellora, Gavin and Adelle play backseat roles in this novel, but their situations or no less important than the other characters…especially once Dalton finds the perfect moment to strike.
The author does a superb job with character development and credibility. There is so much suspense and trepidation that will leave the reader on the edge of their seat. The darker side of this book really makes the reader think about who the victim actually is. Past deeds are forgotten, new relationships are formed; hope can be found in the eyes of a killer. Lady J makes an impact with this second installment in the Marked Series. If you are a reader of psychological suspense and crime, you may find this to your liking.
A free copy was exchanged for an honest review of this fictional piece.

Thanatos, the God of Death, stood in Tartarus and slowly took it all in. He hated this fucking place. Why was he regulated to live in the depths of hell where no other gods wanted to venture? He should be in Domus with everyone else. Thanatos turned at the barely heard footsteps of Janus, the God of the Future. What did he want now?

“Thanatos, we need to speak immediately,” Janus said.

“What have you seen that can’t wait until I’m in a better mood?” Thanatos asked.

“You’re never in a better mood and this is important. We cannot afford to delay any further. Death is coming for us all.”

“Always with the dramatics. Get on with it then.”

“Hecate, Fenrir, and Oberon have decided something that’s caused the future to shift in their favor. If they succeed in their plans, it could mean the end for us and a new beginning for them.”

“Death is an everyday occurrence. I’m not worried about my end…you on the other hand.”

Thanatos watched as Janus just shook his head back and forth franticly.

“NO. This is different. They are trying to amass armies strong enough to kill even you.”


“I’ve seen it.”

Thanatos started to pace. What Janus suggested was ridiculous. He was the God of Death. He could never be killed or weakened. Nothing in the world existed that could control or contain him. Every death made him stronger and there wasn’t a day that went by when someone wasn’t praying for death to claim them.

“What can we do to counter this future? How can we change it back to benefit us?”

“The dead.”

“The dead? What about them?”

“We must have them rise.”

Thanatos closed his eyes and prayed for patience. Sometimes Janus made no fucking sense. Zombies? Really? That was their best option. There had to be something else…something better. He needed a second option on this before he agreed to hear anything else Janus had to say.

“I’m going for a walk. We will discuss this rising of the dead later.”

Thanatos left before Janus could even get a word out. He’d heard enough for the moment. Walking deeper into Tartarus, into the shadows he searched for his father. He found him barely corporal thirty minutes later and waited to be addressed.

Deliverance by L.A. Cotton & Jenny Siegel

Title: Deliverance (The Maverick Defense Series #1)
Authors: L A Cotton & Jenny Siegel
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 1st 2016
Joy Mathers has spent the last three years numb. From her past, her present, and her inevitable future. She was supposed to escape the deadbeat town of Chancing, but now it’s her prison, and she couldn’t leave…even if she wanted to.For the last two years, Dawson Spencer has been holed up in some of the worst corners of the world. He’s seen things no man should ever see, and thought nothing could ever shock him. Until he returns to Chancing and discovers everything has changed in the town he once called home.

He thought Joy was away pursuing her dreams. She thought Dawson was never coming back. And while their connection might still be there, Joy isn’t Dawson’s anymore, and it would be better—safer—for everyone if he walked away. But walking away isn’t an option for Dawson, not this time.

He gave up everything to protect her once … and he’ll do it again

Nobody Knows by Rebecca Barber

Gillian Dempsey must find a reason to go on…
Easier said than done after a rare virus robs her of both parents. Left alone and confused, the mourning nineteen-year-old flees to her three best friends, who receive her with open arms.
Her parents give her more than an inheritance—they give her a second chance at life…
When Gillian is left with some properties in her parents’ will, she assigns them to a real estate agent to manage. Joel Matthews takes the job, but he quickly becomes more than a business associate. After a string of fortunate coincidences, Gillian and Joel spend a passionate night together—after which Joel all but vanishes from her life.
But they still have unfinished business, and Gillian won’t allow him to slip away—especially with her heart.
Life is a roller coaster of tragedy and joy…
Gillian reels him in, and soon the two are married. Gillian’s heart expands even more when they receive the news of their first pregnancy. But after the baby is born, things aren’t the same. Joel becomes distant…resentful. And then the abuse begins. Darkness consumes their marriage—only to get worse.
While Gillian tries to hold her family together, it seems Joel is doing everything to tear them apart. But just one slip of his temper makes all the difference, because this time, there’s no turning back.
Maybe being abused can be endured, as long as Nobody Knows…until someone ends up dead.
