Symphony of Night (Chronicles of the Fallen)
by Julie Morgan
The veil has lowered and the human race now realizes they are not alone. We live among the supernatural, but there’s a catch; you only see them if you have the supernatural gene. Humans want to declare war, but how do you fight against a force you cannot see?
My name is Jac and I’m the last Valkyrie. My best friend and guardian, Rowan, is a gargoyle. The portal to our world has closed, keeping the supernatural trapped on earth. That is until word is out about a stone with powers to open it. It’s not just any stone, it is THE stone.
Tasked by Archangel Michael to locate this stone, I manage to pick up a band of misfits willing to help me in my quest. One of them is Kai, an Oni. Samuel, the first of the Fallen, is also out for the stone, and plans on using to his advantage. What happens if the stone falls into the wrong hands? Appearances can be deceiving, and alliances will form. Are the humans in the right for raging war, and are the supernatural justified to fight back? How do you choose who’s right, and who’s wrong?

Goated by the Gods
by Sheri Lyn

Maddening at first, the family has since learned to use their curse to their advantage and wouldn't trade it for anything, except maybe love. Finding someone to accept them- both sides- is proving difficult.
Thor feels guilty that time slipped away from him in the mortal realm, he never meant for the curse to last as long as it has. In an attempt to make up for it, Thor takes it upon himself to help the brothers find their soulmates, with the help of the Trickster god himself, Loki.
A Matchmaking service run by Thor and Loki? This should be fun, but when the gods are involved, nothing is ever easy.

Spotlight & Giveaway - Patchwork Paradise by Indra Vaughn


Oliver and Samuel’s relationship is fairy-tale perfect. They share a gorgeous house in Antwerp, go out with their friends every weekend, and count down the days to their dream wedding. But their happy ending is shattered one late night, and just like that, Ollie is left bereft and alone. 

The months that follow are long and dark, but slowly Ollie emerges from his grief. He even braves the waters of online dating, though deep down he doesn’t believe he can find that connection again. He doesn’t think to look for love right in front of him: his bisexual friend Thomas, the gentle giant with a kind heart and sad eyes who’s wanted him all along. 

When Thomas suddenly discovers he has a son who needs him, he’s ill prepared. Ollie opens up his house—Sam’s house—and lets them in. Ollie doesn’t know what scares him more: the responsibility of caring for a baby, or the way Thomas is steadily winning his heart. It will take all the courage he has to discover whether or not fairy tales can happen for real.

Review & Giveaway - The Total Package by Stephanie Evanovich

Stephanie Evanovich
Releasing March 15th, 2016
William Morrow

Smart and sexy Dani Carr knows as much about football as any man--maybe more. It’s always been her dream to make a living talking about the game she loves. But Dani’s not interested in being just the usual eye-candy sideline reporter; she wants to be the first woman analyst on a pre-game show, the ultimate in exclusive boys-club jobs. And it turns out, that despite the odds, she has the talent to get her there.

Star quarterback-and heartthrob--Tyson Palmer always did things in spectacular fashion, including ruining his career after debuting as a first-round draft pick. When the head coach of the Austin Mavericks refuses to let him waste his million dollar arm, Tyson makes a Hail Mary pass at redemption and succeeds with everyone…except Dani, who appears to be using her high-profile commentator job to make a name for herself at his expense.

Dani refuses to let anyone forget about Tyson’s transgressions….and for good reason. There’s history between these two, sizzling history that dates back to their college days, and it ended in another spectacular flame-out of Tyson’s. He’s conveniently forgotten all about that episode because Dani is no longer the cute girl next door he barely remembers--she’s a bombshell with huge ratings and a long memory.

But can a woman trying to claw her way to the top and a quarterback who knows all about rock bottom make it to the Super Bowl without destroying each other in the process? And what will happen when Tyson-riding high on his career comeback-realizes he needs to make an even more important comeback with Dani?

RELEASE DATE: 03.28.16
Lucas Barnett and Gabriel Stewart didn’t have it easy as kids. They were only trying to deal with bad situations at home when they became lifelines for each other. Their pipe dream was to someday meet in LA, where Lucas would design skyscrapers, and Gabriel would learn to fly. But then Gabriel disappeared without so much as a goodbye, and Lucas got himself in trouble with the law.
Five years later, both men are at a loss when they run into each other at a Hollywood bar. Lucas is still angry, but it’s not as if Gabriel could control how his mind and body had betrayed him. Being found on the ledge of that bridge had changed everything.
The attraction is immediate, but it’s more than their inability to keep their hands off each other. Neither man expects the fierce connection pulling them together. Unfortunately, ignoring their problems doesn’t make them disappear. Gabriel’s internal struggles are serious…dangerous. And no matter how much Lucas wants it to be true, saving Gabriel won’t make up for not being able to save his mom. If they don’t find the strength to face their own demons before the darkness takes hold, they risk more than just losing each other forever.
touch the sky teaser 5
Small airplane against a stormy sunset sky
I grab a piece of pizza and we finish the whole box, while drinking soda and watching a horror flick on TV. With each minute that passes, Gabe gets closer to me. It’s not one of those lame-ass things you see in movies, where the distance keeps shrinking while they get the balls to make a move. I just think Gabe craves contact—skin and flesh and warmth. And even though I’m not typically like that, I suddenly want to give it to him. Or maybe I’m just a selfish bastard and I’m fooling myself because I really just crave him.

So I do it, blatantly just move closer. Our legs touch, jeans against jeans. Our arms though? That’s skin against skin and I think maybe I really do crave skin and flesh and warmth the same way he does. At least when it’s him, I do.

The movie ends, and out of the corner of my eye, I see his head turn. Feel his gaze on me.

I want to taste him.

Me taste him. I’ve felt his lips twice and both times were both Gabe’s doing. This time it’ll be mine. I turn to him, touch his cheek with my left hand, let his hair slide through my fingers and then grab on.

Then I’m leaning forward, my tongue at the seam of his lips. Gabe opens up for me and I thrust my tongue inside. The feel of him, the taste of him goes straight to my head—both my dick and the one on my shoulders.

He moans into my mouth as I push closer to him. Reading my body language, Gabe turns, lies down so that he’s on his back and I’m between his legs, leaning over him.

My dick aches. I feel his, hard and thick against my stomach as I kiss him deeper.

“I can’t believe you’re here,” I say as my lips slide down his neck. I can’t believe I just said that either.

Gabe’s hand tightens in my hair and his hips move, as he rubs his erection against me.

“I can’t believe it either.” He’s breathless, his voice hoarse with lust. It rocks through me and I suddenly want nothing more than to see what he looks like when he comes.

Spotlight & Giveaway - Trailer Trash by Marie Sexton

Hello, everybody. I'm Marie Sexton, and I'm thrilled to be here today talking about my New Adult novel, Trailer Trash.
Trailer Trash is the story of two high school seniors – Cody, the poor kid from the wrong side of the tracks, and Nate, the new kid in town. It's set in the fictional town of Warren, Wyoming in the mid-1980s.  

I spent the first eleven years of my life in a small town in Wyoming. Granted, my hometown wasn't anywhere near as small or as isolated as Warren. And to tell you the truth, we didn't move all that far – from Western Wyoming to Fort Collins, Colorado. But it was far enough to encounter a couple of differences that can only be chalked up to regional traditions and idiosyncrasies. 

1.    "Uptown" vs. "Downtown": In my hometown, we went "uptown." Here in Colorado, we go "downtown." I asked a friend from small-town Kansas. He confirmed that they went "uptown" as well. So what determines "uptown" vs. "downtown"? I have no idea. Anybody out there know?

2.    Penny candy: I suppose this probably has more to do with the year than the region, but as a kid, there was a gas station across the street that still had penny candy – an entire case full of all different kinds of candy, all of which were 1¢ each. When my cousin came over, my mom would hand us each a dollar, and we'd cross the County Road unattended (which no parent would allow their child to do in this day and age!) and spend a LONG time picking out exactly one hundred pieces of candy. The Swedish fish were my favorite. It took me years to find them again (although they're everywhere now).  


3.    Squeakies: The men back home always went out "shootin' squeakies" for fun. I mentioned this years later to my friends in Colorado, and they just about fell over dead laughing. "What the hell is a 'squeakie'?" Well, I had no idea. It was a rodent. I knew that much. Presumably, it squeaked, at least on occasion. Why was everybody so determined to kill them? I didn't know that either. I tried Google and got nowhere. The only entry I found was in a self-published autobiography of a man who'd spent a few years in my hometown, but he didn't seem to know what they were either. My stepfather told me squeakies were actually Thompson's ground squirrels, but while a search for the term "thompson's ground squirrel" brings up images, a bit more research leads me to think that this too is only a regional nickname for some other type of rodent. Lists like these ( and fail to mention the Thompson's ground squirrel at all. So, what exactly is a squeakie and why the heck was everybody so gung-ho to shoot them? I'm still not entirely sure.

4.    Ironport: I miss Ironport so much. What is it, you ask? Well, I'll copy/paste from good ol' Wikipedia: "Ironport (sometimes spelled as two words: Iron Port) is an old-fashioned carbonated soft drink from the early part of the 20th century that was served at soda fountains and is still popular in the Intermountain West… The flavor has been described as somewhat of a cross between root beer and Caribbean spices and is very similar to the Cuban soda, Iron Beer." Those of you from certain parts of Utah or Idaho might be familiar with it. They served it in my hometown, once upon a time, but not anymore, and it's never been available here in Colorado. We went to the Idaho panhandle a couple of years ago for my BIL's wedding, and I asked everybody about Ironport, but nobody knew what I was talking about. Darn it, I'll have one again someday, I swear! 

So, how about you? Any strange regional things from your hometown that you can't explain? Anything you miss and can't find? Have thoughts on "uptown" vs. "downtown"?
Please share in the comments. (And if you can send me an Ironport, I'll give you a book for free!)  


About Trailer Trash: 

It’s 1986, and what should have been the greatest summer of Nate Bradford’s life goes sour when his parents suddenly divorce. Now, instead of spending his senior year in his hometown of Austin, Texas, he’s living with his father in Warren, Wyoming, population 2,833 (and Nate thinks that might be a generous estimate). There’s no swimming pool, no tennis team, no mall—not even any MTV. The entire school’s smaller than his graduating class back home, and in a town where the top teen pastimes are sex and drugs, Nate just doesn’t fit in. 

Then Nate meets Cody Lawrence. Cody’s dirt-poor, from a broken family, and definitely lives on the wrong side of the tracks. Nate’s dad says Cody’s bad news. The other kids say he’s trash. But Nate knows Cody’s a good kid who’s been dealt a lousy hand. In fact, he’s beginning to think his feelings for Cody go beyond friendship. 

Admitting he might be gay is hard enough, but between small-town prejudices and the growing AIDS epidemic dominating the headlines, a town like Warren, Wyoming, is no place for two young men to fall in love.


 About Marie Sexton:
