Posted by Amanda Masters on 6:34:00 am


Welcome to the DARKEST REACHES Release Event!




Darkest Reaches (Spiritual Discord, #3)
Release Date: April 30th, 2015



Synopsis:

Kayson and the other fallen angels have risked their lives to keep Sabrina safe as she recovered from a Hell hound’s bite. Just when she began to improve, Hell was unleashed as the hounds attacked, and kidnapped Sabrina. 

Now, only days after the fight between the fallen and the hounds, Kayson is determined to find Sabrina and bring her back from Hell. The only thing standing in his way is a dangerous fallen angel named Iraja. Iraja has the means to find Sabrina, but he doesn’t do favors without a price. 

Sabrina is now facing the nightmare she’s been running from since being turned into a vampire a century ago: her eternal condemnation to Hell. Knowing her only chance of survival may rest by playing nice and turning Hell hound Falon against Lucifer, Sabrina gives into the bitter darkness and now has to fight to remember the good soul she truly is. But when she discovers the role her and the innocent human Emma are forced to play, will her fear get the better of her, and will she be lost forever? 

In the third installment of the Spiritual Discord series, the will to survive is tested, worst fears become a reality, and for one, betrayal becomes the only option.






Brandy Nacole resides in Arkansas where her imagination runs wild. Her obsession is reading but her passion is writing. She put her dream of becoming a writer on the back burner and went to college to become a psychologist. Three years after endless classes in a field she only felt half satisfied with, Brandy picked up her pen once again and wrote the outline to Uniquely Unwelcome. She finished out her degree in psychology, but traded her dream of writing for the degree and put psychology on the back burner. 

Whenever she’s not reading or writing, Brandy is spending time with her family and friends, throwing around crazy ideas, teaching , and singing like a rock star at a concert for no one else but herself. She loves plants, but unfortunately is a killer of anything that requires water but can’t voice (scream) their needs.

WW4BB & RABT Presents: A Review of Odin's Shadow by Erin S. Riley

Posted by Amanda Masters on 1:18:00 pm





Historical Romance
Date Published: April 2, 2015

Obsession. Treachery. Revenge. Redemption. Certain themes resonate across the centuries.

Selia is a girl on the verge of womanhood, frustrated by the confines of her gender and resentful of the freedom her brother boasts of. Intelligent and resourceful in a time when neither is valued in a female, she longs for an escape from her sheltered existence. Fascinated by the tales of Viking raids told by her maidservant, her hunger for independence is fed through the stories of heathen ferocity she hears at the woman’s knee.
A decision to sneak to the city’s harbor to view the Viking longships leads to an encounter with Alrik Ragnarson, a charismatic Viking warlord whose outward beauty masks a dark and tortured mind. With the knowledge that her father is about to announce her betrothal to a man she doesn’t love, Selia marries Alrik and within a day is on the longship bound for Norway and a new life.

While Selia’s relationship with her new husband grows, her friendship with his brother Ulfrik grows as well. And as Alrik’s character flaws come to light and tension mounts between the two brothers, Selia begins to have misgivings about her hasty marriage . . . especially when a secret from the past is revealed, one that threatens to destroy them all.


My Review




Odin's Shadow by Erin S. Riley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This Book Was Given To Me By The Author In Exchange For An Honest Review

This was an amazing read! I love stories about Ragnar and his family and Erin doesn't disappoint in this chilling and romantic tale! Alrik Ragnarson is a brutal yet intriguing Viking who plunders Selia's home and family and marries her. His brother is the Ulfrik of a more genital nature befriends her and tries to help explain why his brother is the way he is and of the Ragnar curse upon his family.

I couldn't get enough of this book it had me hooked from the very start! so much drama and history all rolled up together! and Alrik's mood swings! wow! I have never seen anyone go from fine to stark raving mad so fast! talk about crazy...lol...Selia was good for him though and I believe that they made a great pair. I can't wait to read more to the story, I found every inch of it fascinating.

I really liked Ulfrik and I felt sorry for him a lot having to play second fiddle to his brothers madness all his life couldn't have been easy. He took the brunt of his anger time and again to help others and he really was a good guy beneath it all. I wish good things for him and I hope he gets it in the next book. The Harpy of a daughter of Alrik's is another story, I hope they keep her well away from Selia's brother!...lol....not that it wouldn't be deserving for the both of them to be stuck together...lol...but I kind of like him.

Erin did a smashing job on this one and I can't wait to read more! if you haven't gotten your copy do so today!

Excerpt


Selia studied her husband thoughtfully. "Alrik...when you came to me the next day in the woods, you were surprised I spoke any Norse."
"Yes."
"Then how did you think you could ask me to go with you?"
He paused for a moment. "I wasn't going to ask you—I was going to take you. I wanted to take you the day I saw you in the market." Alrik's eyes burned into hers, and Selia couldn't look away. "You set up such a...such a craving inside me. I had to have you."
"But you didn't take me," Selia whispered.
"No." He swallowed. "I didn't want you to fear me. You do something to me, Selia. I look at you and I lose all reason. You drive me mad with desire and yet at the same time I want to protect you. To protect you from me."
Alrik's face went dark, as though he immediately regretted what he had said. It was the most he had ever opened up to her and the closest he had come to admitting he loved her. Alrik scowled as he pushed her aside to unlace his boots.
He grunted and cursed as he tried to pull them off, getting angrier by the minute, and Selia watched him. He was embarrassed; not at the fact that he couldn't get his boots off, but because he had nearly told her he loved her. She knelt down to help him. "Do you need help with your breeches, too?" she teased in an attempt to lighten his mood, but his scowl only deepened.
"Selia," he said suddenly, "I don't want you to spend so much time with Ulfrik. No more tafl."
"What?" Her smile faded. "Why?"
"It doesn't matter why. Because I said so."
Selia's lip quivered as she stood up. "Have I...done something wrong?"
Alrik looked at her for several moments before responding. "If it had been Ulfrik you met in Dubhlinn—instead of me—would you have gone with him?"
Selia stared at him. Where was this coming from? Did he actually believe she was interested in his brother, or was this simply his way of picking a fight with her after his near-admission of love? A way to deflect the conversation away from what he perceived as a weakness?
"No," she said. "I told you—you are the only one I have ever wanted."
"But you do care for Ulfrik," he pushed. "I see the way you look at him. I see the way you laugh with him."
"He is my friend, Alrik." Selia felt her face flush with anger. "He is kind to me."
"He is kind to you," Alrik mocked. "Yes, he is so kind, and he wants nothing in return. I tell you Selia, you don't know anything about Ulfrik. If I gave the word, he would be all over you just like he was Muirin—"
Selia cried out and covered her ears. "Stop! Why are you saying such things?"
"Because they're true!" His anger was escalating to a dangerous level. "No man can look at you and think of friendship, and Ulfrik is no better than anyone else—"
"Alrik, stop." She put her hands on his face and looked directly into his wild eyes. Selia could feel the tension in his body as it shook with rage; could sense the beast inside him, pacing to get out. She stroked his face gently as one would to calm a nervous animal.
"I only want you," Selia reassured him. "Only you."

My Review

Snow White Lies by Sarah J. Pepper
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This Book Was Given To Me By The Author In Exchange For An Honest Review

Wow! Sarah has done it again! I have always loved the darkness of a Grimm fairytale but what Sarah brings to the story in her dark and twisted imaginings is so much more! Here we have dwarfs that are not Snows allies but the Queens pawns and a Huntsman whose sanity is not his own.

While a big Fan of the original Snow white tale I was very excited to read this one. I even named my daughter after the original snow (Lilyanna) and Sarah for sure did not disappoint! I for sure hope my daughter doesn't turn out anything like Sarah's version however she was perfect for the book.

The book had none stop action and was a edge of your seat page turner, the seven were a formidable force and I loved how Sarah turned 7 harmless dwarfs into such men to be feared. I for sure wouldn't want to meet them on the street or anywhere for that matter...lol... the huntsmen was different he was sexy and dangerous and you never knew if he was going to kiss you or kill you. It lent an aura of anticipation and suspense to the book.

Sarah is a mad genius when it comes to writing and the fairytale angle is a rare talent for her. Her collection of fairytale pieces is totally brilliant and I love them all! if you haven't gotten yours make sure you get yours today! Death of the Mad Hatter, Locks: Rapunzel Unleashed and now Snow White lies!

View all my reviews
















I specialize in dark, paranormal romance – think “happy ever after” but with a twisted, dark chocolate center. Real-life romance isn’t only filled with hugs, kisses, unicorns, and rainbows. True-love can be more thoroughly described in times of darkness and tribulation. It’s in those harsh moments where you see what a person is truly capable of – both the good and bad. Sometimes prince-charming isn’t always on time, and the glass slipper is a little snug. However, it doesn’t mean Charming is not Mr. Right, and who says every shoe is the perfect fit?

Series: Capital Confessions #1
Genre: Contemporary Romance


The author of I See London sets her sights on Washington, D. C., with a sexy new series about three sisters, the secrets they keep, and a powerful blog with a knack for exposing scandals...

Jackie Gardner knows all about dirty little secrets. The illegitimate daughter of one of the most influential senators in Washington, D.C., she grew up surrounded by the scandals and shadows of politics. Now that she's landed an internship with a powerful political consulting firm, she's determined to launch her career and take this city by storm.

William Andrew Clayton was born for politics. He knows the drill: work hard, play discreetly, and at all costs, avoid scandal. At twenty-six, his campaign for the Virginia State Senate is the first step to cementing his future. It's time for him to settle down, to find the perfect political spouse. He needs a Jackie Kennedy, not a Marilyn...

When Jackie meets Will in the bar of the Hay-Adams Hotel, sparks fly. But the last thing Will needs is to be caught in a compromising position, and an affair with a political candidate could cost Jackie her career. When what began as one steamy night, becomes a passion neither one of them can walk way from, they must decide if what they have is really love, or just another dirty little secret...
