Sexy, sultry, witty, HOT! Grab your copy NOW!!!

#GetHitched









He called me “wife.”


This man standing naked in front of me. Tall. Dark. Sexy as sin…


He’s my husband?


Disjointed images from the night before, the night I can’t entirely remember, float into my mind.


Meeting him in the bar. Sharing tidbits of our lives. I own a company that plans bachelor parties. He’s a pediatric heart surgeon.


We both live in Las Vegas, but we come from very different worlds.


And then I remember that kiss. The way his lips brushed against mine, gentle at first, then harder, deeper, with more urgency.


Sex in the elevator. Hot, forbidden, delicious.


I remember the way he made me feel. The way our bodies fit perfectly together.


But I don’t remember marrying him.


And now, he won’t let me go. Dr. Sexy who saves children for a living. He wants the summer to prove we are meant to be.


I can give him a summer.


But can I give him a lifetime?

REVIEW

Sexy, fun and flirty - there was just so much to love about this book!

I was hooked from the very first page (and not only because of a wet, naked Sebastian Donovan, although, it was a great visual to open this book with :P) but, because I immediately could tell that this book was going to be an emotional ride full of romance, humor, sensuality, drama, and a fantastic cast of characters who were easy to fall in love with.

Kacie, Tate and Vi were the perfect threesome. I enjoyed their witty comments and playful banter, and I'd really love to see more of Kacie's twin and BFF. Then, of course, there was the drop dead gorgeous, melt my heart Dr Sexy! My. God. He was a stunning male specimen, - a gentleman, sexy and charming without being a sleazeball, and a man who knew all the right things to say without coming off as a player. And, the fact that he healed children...yeah! Karpov Kinrade have got a pantie igniting phenomenon on their hands here!

This book steamed up my Kindle or more than one occasion. With explosive chemistry between Kacie and Sebastian, there was no denying how perfect they were for each other. Even in the moments when they weren't heating up my ereader, they were a cute couple who seemed to fit perfectly into each others lives, and I wanted to shake Kacie every time she denied their compatibility. But, of course, it took her losing the best thing in her life for her to face her worst fears, and to realize just what she was missing out on. It also helped her realize that perhaps she can have it all. With the right man at her side to help boost her instead of stifle her. And, Sebastian Donovan was that man in more ways than one.

Blog Tour: Review + Excerpt: Demon's Grip by Tahlia Newland #DiamondPeakSeries









Demon’s Grip

Diamond Peak Series Book #3
By- Tahlia Newland
Genre- YA Fantasy

Ariel thought she knew her travelling companion, Nick, but she discovers that at the University of Sheldra, he’s a respected translator with little time to spare. Now that he isn't at her side all the time, she wishes he was, and when she finally admits her love, powerful emotions sweep her away.

The demon lord Emot takes advantage of her inexperience in matters of the heart and preys on her desire, setting off a struggle with addiction that threatens to break Nick's heart and turn Ariel into the demon's mindless slave. She must reach deep into her soul and find the mystical power she needs to kill the one who promises pleasure but delivers only pain. Fail, and she will lose the one she loves and spend an eternity in the demon's grip.

EXCERPT
Nick drew his sword, sidled along the corridor wall and leapt around the corner. A startled, black-clad Magan in a purple cape—one of Kestril’s clan—drew his sword and stepped back, his eyes on the tip of Nick’s blade pointed at his throat.
Behind the olive-skinned Magan, on the other side of the open double doors, rain fell in silver sheets. Even in the dim light, Nick recognised the black-bearded man. ‘Druid,’ he said calmly, raising his voice over the sound of the rain. ‘Your magic has failed, so tell me who sent you, or this sword will prise the words from your throat.’
Druid’s eyes narrowed and his arm muscles tensed ready to strike. ‘How do you know my name?’
‘I’ll tell you that if you tell me who gives you your orders,’ Nick replied.
‘You know whose side I’m on.’
‘But you don’t see Rasama directly. He’d eat you up and spit out your bones. Lord Menhir is it?’
‘No,’ Druid spat, his face distorted with growing rage.
‘Kestril then?’
‘Him? Pah! Menhir’s precious son who whispers soppy words in his ear? Never.’
‘Then who? Tell me, or perhaps you’d rather be a corpse.’ Nick pressed the tip of his sword into the Magan’s throat.
Druid stepped back. ‘You wouldn’t kill me.’
Nick stepped forward. ‘Are you willing to test that hypothesis?’
Druid stood his ground. ‘Warriors don’t kill men.’
‘That’s a dangerous assumption.’
‘I’ll risk it.’ The Magan darted away from Nick’s blade and struck out with his own.
Nick took a step back, surprised at the ferocity of the Magan’s onslaught, but he parried his every blow and stood his ground. They battled solidly, swords flashing in the grey light that spilled into the entrance hall.
‘Emot is it? Nearby, is he?’ Nick sprang forward, beat down Druid’s guard and aimed a blow at his neck.
The Magan blocked the blow, parried another attack and thrust forward only to be parried in turn. ‘He’s never far away,’ Druid gloated as he thrust again. Sweat dripped from his brow.
Once again, Nick’s quick reflexes blocked Druid’s attack. ‘What does he offer you, Druid? Riches? A bounty for Ariel?’
Druid snorted. ‘Kill you and I take her for myself.’ His top lip curled in a suggestive smirk.
Disgust, fury and a powerful urge to protect Ariel fuelled Nick’s determination and he unleashed his full power, forcing Druid backward. ‘Whatever it is, he won’t pay up. He never does. He’ll keep you hoping, always wanting. That’s what he feeds on. You’re a fool if you think you’ll ever get anything he promises you.’
‘Enough words,’ Druid growled. He stood his ground, maintaining his guard but unable to take the upper hand.
Nick feinted then cut towards Druid’s chest. The Magan parried a little too late and the tip of Nick’s blade scratched his side.
‘Surrender or die,’ Nick said as his sword arced towards his opponent again.
‘And end up in a cell! I’d rather be dead,’ Druid hissed. He blocked Nick’s sword with a clang, then feinted and followed with a vicious chest cut.
Nick slammed the Magan’s sword out of the way. ‘You’re already a slave; a Rasa’s slave.’
Druid merely hissed in reply. Their swords bound and disengaged, thrust and parried. Druid slowed, struggling under the weight of Nick’s superior swordsmanship. Eventually, Nick broke the panting Magan’s defence with a well-timed thrust. He stopped with his sword held steady an inch from Druid’s throat. ‘Drop it or die.’
‘Better I die!’ Druid took advantage of Nick’s pause, mustered his failing strength and knocked the Warrior’s sword away.
Nick sprang back. Maybe he shouldn’t have given Druid a choice. The Magan probably thought Nick didn’t have the will to kill him. A bad assumption for Nick, for Druid was a skilful opponent. A positive outcome was not assured.
‘Gutless wonder!’ Druid sneered. His fight had a desperate quality now and Nick’s second sight revealed a heavy infestation of Serpentine inside him. Grown to overflowing by the Magan’s hatred, black slime dripped from the Magan’s brow, and the beginnings of a Rasa demon grew from his back. It arose, snarling and spitting, devouring what remained of Druid.
In many ways the Magan was already dead, a puppet of the Serpentine. Fully fledged and unleashed, it used the human to do what it could not do alone—kill Nick. But Nick was a Warrior and he gave the power of his Radiance full rein. He didn’t want to kill Druid, but the Magan had chosen his own fate. With the unconfined power of the Radiance racing through it, the Warrior thrust his sword into the Serpentine puppet’s heart.
Druid dropped to the floor with a thud, his sword clattering on the hard stone. ‘As you wished,’ Nick whispered. ‘And I pray it’s quick.’ The Magan’s eyes glazed over.

REVIEW

Another spell-binding adventure that saw Ariel and her friends in an epic fight against the demons of Diamond Peak. This book was a little different as Ariel and Nick settled at Sheldra so that she could train, learn and gain more knowledge. The Emot demon seemed to be more of a threat that the other two she'd had to face, only because he fed off of desires and cravings, and there was so much Ariel craved, whether she was willing to accept it or not.

I have to admit that Ariel was a little annoying with her jealousy over the fact that Nick didn't want to spend every second with her. I had seen so much strength in her in the other two books, and I had been impressed that she didn't allow things to distract her completely, but her feelings and behavior in this book reminded me of just how young she was.

I was particularly looking forward to this book because Emot was the demon that held Nadima captive, so I was eager to see if Ariel would find a way to find her mother. I was quite surprised when Nadima found a way out, and even more surprising was the compassion she showed towards the vile creature that fed off of her, and I believe I wasn't the only one.

I was glad to see that even though Ariel had accomplished what she had initially set out to do, she was still willing to continue onto the ultimate goal of ridding the world of the evil that invaded it. I look forward to reading the final book in this series, and to see both Ariel and Nick fulfill their destiny.

REVIEW

I've really enjoyed this series, but this was probably my favorite book from all of them. The more I get to know Mark and the more I get to see him with his family and also with Crystal, the bigger the soft spot I hold for him becomes. He's an enigma. Dark, mysterious, broken but deep down he has a warm gooey center.

His relationship with Crystal was hot then cold, filled with plenty of sexual tension and smoking hot chemistry. Both looking for something completely different that what either could give each other, but so perfect together it was impossible for them to ignore the passion and sparks that exploded every time they were close.

Aside for the sensuality of this story, there was still the deadly threat that hung over Mark and everyone he held dear. A threat that was so palpable that I felt like I was holding my breath every step of the way just incase Ava or one of her cronies pitched up.

Thoroughly intriguing and suspenseful, this book held my attention from start to finish. A spectacular read and great addition to the rest of the series!

Flynn Friday Teaser: Chasing the Tide by A. Meredith Walters









RELEASE DATE: DECEMBER 16 2014


 
***The powerful continuation of the story that began in Reclaiming the Sand- a tale of love and forgiveness and learning to over come a past that has come to define you.***

Bully and Victim

Friend and Lover

Past and Future

Ellie McCallum and Flynn Hendrick’s story was as painful as it was devastating.  But they were able to find within each other an unlikely yet beautiful love. Despite the obstacles that tried to keep them apart.

And together they rose out of the ashes of their tragic history.

Now years after their life changing reunion Ellie is back in Wellston, having just graduated from college and ready to start her future with the man who taught her how to love. However, returning to a town that held so much bitterness and anger was the last place she wanted to start over.

But for Flynn, who is now an art professor at the community college and firmly rooted in the place that gave them their beginning, she’d do just about anything.

Yet it’s difficult building a life when you’ve only just learned how to live.
 And love, no matter how strong, doesn’t always conquer all.

Ellie and Flynn must learn how far they are willing to go to stay together. Or whether the ghosts of the past will consume them both.

Because finding a happily ever after is harder than it seems. Particularly when you’re fighting against the one thing that could destroy you.

 
Yourself.

 

SEE WHERE IT ALL BEGAN...
 
 


 
From the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author of Find You in the Dark and Bad Rep comes a story of forgiveness, redemption and finding love in the most unlikely of places.

*THIS IS A STANDALONE WITH NO CLIFFHANGER!*

Bully and victim.
Tormenter and tormented.
Villain and hero.

Ellie McCallum was a bully. No connection to anyone or anything. A sad and lonely existence for a young woman who had come to expect nothing more for herself. Her only happiness coming from making others miserable.

Particularly Freaky Flynn.

Flynn Hendrick lived a life completely disconnected even as he struggled to become something more than that boy with Asperger's. He was taunted and teased, bearing the brunt of systematic and calculated cruelty, ultimately culminating in a catastrophic turn of events that brought Ellie and Flynn’s worlds crashing down.

But then Flynn and Ellie grew up.

And moved on.

Until years later when their paths unexpectedly cross again and the bully and the freak are face to face once more.

When labels come to define you, finding yourself feels impossible. Particularly for two people disconnected from the world who inexplicably find a connection in each other.
And out of the wreckage of their tragic beginnings, an unlikely love story unfolds.
But a painful past doesn’t always want to let go. And old wounds are never truly healed…and sometimes the further you try to run from yourself the closer you come to who you really are.
