So excited to spotlight Shantel Tessier and her cover reveal of Sinner!
Title: The Sinner Author: Shantel Tessier Genre: Dark College Romance Release Date: November 30, 2022
I was raised in a world where money and power are at your fingertips. My father is a LORD, a very respected member of a secret society that knows no bounds. When tragedy struck my family, we discovered we weren’t untouchable. Just when I thought life couldn’t get any worse, I was shown what hell is really like. Then he came and saved me. The devil disguised as my personal hero. But of course, nothing is for free. Not when a soul is up for grabs.
I VOW. YOU VOW. WE VOW.
Easton Bradley Sinnett—Sin—uses his power for his own sick pleasure. Like a typical Lord, he never thought about the consequences of his actions. I grew up with him, obsessed over him, craved him. He was who I pictured when I imagined doing things my body shouldn’t want.
One day, I realized he was not who I thought he was. It didn’t change anything, though, because I was already too far gone. If anything, I fell for him harder.
Every now and then, someone enters your life who flips it upside down. Sin wrecked me in the worst way, and I thanked him for it by serving on my knees.
As they say, nothing lasts forever. Men like him never stay with a woman like me. I’m what they use, not keep. So when he threw me away, I shouldn’t have been all that surprised.
My body had always craved the darker side of love. The kind that left bruises and scars. I was what most would call unholy. And when the devil whispered in my ear that he loved me, I was more than determined to show him just how devoted I could be.
The Powers That Be series bundle is available in Kindle on Amazon right now. The paperback should be up this coming week. The cover was designed by Artscandare Book Cover Designs. The bundle is available for ARC on Netgalley right now and as of 10/14 on Booksprout.
This week I’m featuring Sara Downing and her book I Let You Fall!
Title: I Let You Fall Author: Sara Downing Genre: Contemporary Romance Release Date: June 20, 2022
A contemporary tale of tragedy, selflessness, love, and renewal.
On a summer night in London, art teacher Eve Chapman finds herself in a hospital emergency room. She watches surgeons desperately operate on a young woman with a terrible head injury. But when the bandages are removed, Eve is horrified to find her own body on the operating table.
Trapped in a coma, Eve struggles to cope with the fact that no matter how hard she tries, her family and friends cannot see or hear her. But then she meets Luca Diaz, a handsome and comatose lawyer who can see her. He takes Eve under his wing and teaches her how to use her new abilities to help the living.
As the weeks pass, Eve struggles to find a way back to her body and to Nathan, the man she loves. But the more time she spends with Luca, the more she wonders if her old life is worth going back to at all.
I Let You Fall lifts the spirits of fans of romantic dramas like The Time Traveler’s Wife, In Five Years, and Afterwards.
This week’s author spotlight is Sinclair Kelly and her new release, Knot A Chance!
Title: Knot A Chance (Knot Yours Omegaverse #2) Author: Sinclair Kelly Genre: Omegaverse, Contemporary Romance, Romantic Comedy Release Date: September 28, 2022
Time heals all wounds…
Yeah, I call bullshit. My grief still bleeds out each and every day no matter how much time passes.
I’ve managed to make a new life for myself by helping my bestie run TheOmegasGuide—our viral social media account. We support freedom of choice for all designations.
Though I’m starting to wonder if having a choice is really all that great. Locke’s up my ass more than usual, acting weird, and…is my hulking Beta friend flirting? I’d be lying if I said I didn’t secretly hope he’d ignore that whole friend-zone thing. Then there’s Cohen—the commanding, broody Alpha who wants nothing to do with me, but that I can’t stop thinking about. Of course, I can’t forget Bastian—the sexy stranger I ran into—literally. With his big, warm, mouthwateringly gorgeous body and haunted brown eyes, I’d love the chance to get to know him better.
The intensity of our chemistry is explosive, but they’re not a pack, and I’m not looking for another forever….right? No. It hurts too much and goes against everything I believe now.
No relationships. No commitments. This Omega needs to rediscover just who she is and can’t fall into anything serious.
Nope. Knot a chance.
For Trigger Warnings, please visit my website. Knot A Chance is book two in the Knot Yours Omegaverse, a series of fast-burn reverse harem romance standalones. Each book will end in an HEA and lead into the next book with a new reluctant omega and her own possessive, purring alphas.
So my dad was on a ladder on top of scaffolding, something he would kick our asses for doing, and he fell. He broke a lot of bones and has been through two surgeries now and has so much metal in him that he could be mistaken for a cyborg. His rib surgery alone took 8 hours because all of the ribs on one side were fractured. One of his lungs was punctured and they needed to clean the bone fragments from it. But it gets better, he broken ribs on the other side too. His pelvis was broken. His clavicle and his scapula were also fractured.
Good thing he didn’t bruise his brain–we already know that wasn’t working since he put a ladder on top of scaffolding.
Needless to say, I’ve not got much done because I’m all sorts of a mess. My family is on the other side of the country and we are trying to figure out if I’m flying out to gather my sister and bring her out here with me while my dad recoups. My dad and sister are like two cats in a bag they aggravate one another. If she comes out here then they can both relax and appreciate one another.
All this said… if you suddenly see a catastrophic fall with epic surgery pop up in JONAH I’m just writing what I know. 😆
This week’s Featured author is Kelsey Ketch and her new release Bly!
Title: Bly Author: Kelsey Ketch Genre: Contemporary, Fantasy, New Adult Release Date: September 22, 2022
I left the United States to find inner peace. Instead, I find myself confronting a malicious ghost.
Astyr Salt is a spiritual and emotional empath who moved to England with the intent to forget about a traumatic, supernatural event that occurred during her freshman year of college. However, when she takes a spiritual cleansing assignment in a haunted country home in Essex, she is isolated with all her own pent-up emotions.
These emotions energize the ghosts inhabiting the country home, helping them draw their own tragedies to the surface. Searching for the truth, Astyr is forced to relive the past. And the deeper she dives into the country home’s horrific history, the more the intertwined memories place her in the path of an evil and demented predator.
A blend of contemporary fantasy, horror, and mystery, Bly is inspired by Henry James’s classic novella, The Turn of the Screw.
JONAH is the second time I’ve been novelly challenged. The first time it happened, I moved on and wrote RAIDEN in one week, but that isn’t a luxury I have right now. I have to find inspiration in this clusterfuck that I call JONAH. Luckily while at Books At The Beach, I was around other authors much more experienced than me and one of them blessed me with a suggestion that I’m taking to heart. I’m reading RAIDEN and TRACE to get a sense of Jonah’s voice and where Lizzy and he are in their story.
Thanks for all the advice, those authors I spoke with, your knowledge is invaluable.
Today is the cover reveal for my The Powers That Be bundle!
Title: The Powers That Be Bundle Author: Ali Lucia Sky Cover Designer: Artscandare Book Cover Design (Maria Christine Pagtalunan) Genre: Paranormal Romance, New Adult Release Date: October 11, 2022
This World is just one of thousands of Worlds the Makers have created. The Universe and Makers are playing with those who live on it.
No one who had met Michaela Beauchamp could come away from it unscathed. She was a shrew–argumentative, crass, and the focus of all my wet dreams. I loved to hate her. We were at war and I was determined to win. I didn’t want her to just go away, I wanted to watch her fine ass as she went in that direction.
Whoever thought Gabriel Langdon was more than a pretty face never met the douchecanoe.
Last weekend was Books At The Beach in St. Pete Beach, Florida. I had a great time but in retrospect, did not take that many photos. I failed the photo boss.
The schedule was incredibly convenient for authors and attendees. Thursday was author panels. I took some time to find an incredible vegan restaurant called Golden Dinosaurs in Gulfport, and I attended John Stamp’s Law Enforcement talk. After that, I went to Sherrilyn (Kenyon) McQueen’s panel. Oh my God! She was so full of advice and tidbits about writing and publishing that I won’t share with you because what happened in that room, stays in that room. Sorry, Charlie.
