From the author of the Fate series and The Deep End of the Sea comes a fantastical romantic adventure that has Alice tumbling down the strangest rabbit hole yet.
After years in Wonderland, Alice has returned to England as an adult, desperate to reclaim sanity and control over her life. An enigmatic gentleman with an intriguing job offer too tempting to resist changes her plans for a calm existence, though. Soon, she’s whisked to New York and initiated into the Collectors’ Society, a secret organization whose members confirm that famous stories are anything but straightforward and that what she knows about the world is only a fraction of the truth.
It’s there she discovers villains are afoot—ones who want to shelve the lives of countless beings. Assigned to work with the mysterious and alluring Finn, Alice and the rest of the Collectors’ Society race against a doomsday clock in order to prevent further destruction . . . but will they make it before all their endings are erased?

Libby Rice’s Love Me Later.
So without further ado:

Love Me Later

Love Me Later by Libby Rice
Release Date October 14th

Scarlet Leore enjoys a glittering existence amongst society’s elite. Ethan Blake is a prizefighter knocking his way through school, counting on his winnings to bankroll the dreams that won’t fit in a boxing ring. When the two meet, neither can deny the instant attraction that wells between the hulking fighter and the heiress who is miles and millions out of his league. But a vicious attack leaves Scarlet physically and emotionally battered, and for Ethan, her allure crumbles along with the rest of his life after she accuses him of wielding the knife.

Years later, Scarlet has abandoned the high life for that of a hard-working lawyer, while Ethan has clawed his way to the pinnacle of a business empire. Drawn into his world of high-stakes tech mergers, they dance to a tune of revenge, desire, and finally, redemption. But their world won’t tolerate an attorney falling for her client. They’ll need more than lust and forgiveness. They must bridge the chasm of a tormented past to understand who they are today. Only then can they forge a future in the face of the resurging enemy who once tore them apart.

Before becoming a writer, Libby was first a mechanical engineer in the data acquisition industry (voltmeter anyone?). Preferring writing to technical design, Libby headed to law school and eventually practiced patent law for several enterprising years (patent application covering a voltmeter anyone?). Finally realizing that technology just wasn’t her bag, she traded the voltmeters for alpha heroes and the women who love them.

Today, Libby writes contemporary romances from the foot of the Rocky Mountains, where she lives with her husband, a bona fide rocket scientist (he stuck with the voltmeters!). When not writing, Libby loves good food, even better wine, and traveling the world in search of the next great story.

Guest Post + #Giveaway: Eyes of the Enemy by Kelly Hess #BlackMystTrilogy

Eyes of the Enemy by Kelly Hess

Series: BlackMyst Trilogy

Genre: YA/MG Fantasy
Expected Publication Date: August 26, 2014
Published By: Booktrope Publishing


When a rogue band of the dreaded Sorak attacks his village, twelve-year-old Beynn Firehand escapes into the darkness of BlackMyst Forest to find help. During his quest, Beynn discovers his own powerful magic abilities.

The price of his newfound powers, however, may be higher than he ever imagined.

For My Son  

(What inspired me to write)

by Kelly Hess
Routine. As a parent, routines can be a lifesaver. Having a consistent nighttime routine can turn the unbearable nightmare of bedtime into a much more bearable nightmare. Reading has been a big part of my son’s bedtime routine. Every night since he has been old enough to understand words, we have squeezed into a big chair together and read. We’ve covered everything from the entire collection of Dr. Seuss up through the Harry Potter series. Sometimes I read, sometimes he reads, but it happens every single night. I like to think it calms him and it prepares him mentally that it’s time to go to sleep.
A few years ago when my son was eight, we came to the end of another good book. The next day, we searched high and low through our bookshelves for another literary adventure to dive into, but nothing seemed appropriate or even interesting for a young imaginative boy. Well after eight years of reading, I felt I knew my son’s tastes, so on a whim, I decided that I would write something I knew he’d enjoy. I sat myself down at the computer and after a couple of false starts, I  began writing the story that would eventually become my first book, Eyes of the Enemy. I grew up reading Fantasy and Science Fiction, so I naturally gravitated to those genres. I named my protagonist Beynn, which my son quickly recognized to be an anagram of his own name. (Benny)
I have always enjoyed writing short stories and such but had never imagined that I could write a complete novel. I really had no intention to write anything but a little story to read with my son, but as the tale evolved and snowballed, I knew that I had a book to write. And as it turned out, I actually had a trilogy of books to write. Unfortunately, as my little story grew, it went beyond a typical eight-year-old reading level. Don’t worry though; my son and I found other age-appropriate books to read at the library, and much to my joy, he was able to come back and read all of my books within a few years.

About the Author

Kelly Hess grew up with a love of reading science fiction and fantasy that inspired him to write his own fantasy trilogy. He lives in Vacaville, California with his wife and son, and is putting the final details on the last two books of his BlackMyst Trilogy: The Green Dagger and The Third Power.

I fuck them. I use them. I pay them off. I find another. My demands are never denied. My contracts are always signed. They submit to me. Willingly. Completely. Temporarily. This is how it’s always been

Until I saw that filthy tweet. 

@VaughnAsher My bare pussy. Your tongue. #ThingsIThinkAboutToGetOff “FilthyBlueBird” thinks she can tease me with hashtags and then hide behind a Twitter handle? She thinks I wouldn’t be more than happy to #RockHerFilthyWorld? She’s wrong. 

Her online fantasy is about to collide with her public reality, and it’s about to happen… now.

J. A. Huss likes to write new adult books that make you think and keep you guessing. Her favorite genre to read is space opera, but since practically no one reads those books, she writes new adult science fiction, paranormal romance, contemporary romance, urban fantasy, and books about Junco (who refuses to be saddled with a label).

She has an undergraduate degree in horses, (yes, really–Thank you, Colorado State University) and a master’s degree in forensic toxicology from the University of Florida. She used to have a job driving around Colorado doing pretty much nothing but shooting the breeze with farmers, but now she just writes, runs the New Adult Addiction and Clean Teen Reads Book Blogs, and runs an online science classroom for homeschoolers.

#BasteiEntertainment Publisher Collection: Review: A Flower for the Queen by Caroline Vermalle

November 1805. In the midst of a blizzard in Montreal, a young man and his father stumble across an old man, unconscious in the snow. Scattered around him are the petals of winter flowers and a journal containing an incredible story…

It is 1770, and following the expeditions to the New Worlds, the colonies are experiencing a botanical gold rush amidst a new craze for exotic flowers. Scientists want to study them, traders want to sell them and the rich and royal want to decorate their homes with them. Adventurers and botanists are dispatched to plunder the tropical forests of the far-flung colonies.

Francis Masson, a timid Scottish under-gardener at Kew Gardens had never hoped for adventure, until he is tricked into applying for an expedition on the Resolution with the great Captain Cook. His mission is to find and bring back a beautiful exotic flower to be named after the Queen. Masson knows that he is hopelessly underqualified, but duty to his King and Country, and most of all, the promise of wealth, renown and respectability are too much to refuse. Arriving in South Africa, amidst a difficult political situation, Masson accepts the first offer of help he receives – from the shady merchant Adrian Schelling and the slave trader Willmer. This proves a costly mistake, and Masson soon finds himself abandoned and under suspicion for espionage in the South African tropical forests. By chance, he encounters the eccentric and fearless Doctor Carl Thunberg. Masson isn’t sure whether to trust him but knows he has no choice, and together they set off to find the flower with Schelling hot on their heels. But little does Masson know that he will make a far more precious discovery; one that will make him question everything he holds dear.

With finesse in digital publishing, the company shares stories across various platforms


After more than 60 years of success in the European literary market, German publishing giant Bastei Lübbe is venturing into brand new territory and launching projects in the United States for the first time.

The revolutionary publishing company is expanding with the introduction of new book series and digital apps beginning this spring. Making its American debut, Bastei Lübbe has a strong reputation for issuing popular fiction titles by esteemed authors and up and coming writers.

Bastei Lübbe has proven to be a master of innovation by taking on projects beyond traditional publishing. The company is rolling out its fact-based, cross platform project “Netwars – Out of CTRL” starting this spring, which includes a graphic novel app simultaneously made available in five languages, an e-book series, audio book series and several interactive video documentaries for television and the web. Netwars will be available on IOS, Google Play, Amazon and Samsung.

“These are exciting times for digital publishing and especially for our team at Bastei Entertainment,” said head of international sales Colin Lovrinovic. “Netwars is a great example of how we work. It’s a gripping story told through various channels, which gives you the possibility to dive incredibly deep into it – or to just choose your favorite medium.”

A successful IPO and tirelessly working to develop engaging cross vertical products puts Baste Lübbe in a unique strategic position regarding the early digital capture of new markets.

Bastei Lübbe is the publisher behind “Cotton FBI,” the most successful crime series in Germany with 1 billion copies sold. And after only 11 weeks, its e-book series “Apocalypsis” by German author Mario Giordano hit the 1 million mark for downloads in China. Its “Laura’s Star” app for children hit No. 1 in iTunes in three separate categories.

Bastei Lübbe is based in Cologne, Germany but will be launching several hundred foreign language titles over the next months through its digital publishing arm Bastei Entertainment. The company is the largest independent trade publisher in the country and a major player in the audio book industry.

This was a thoroughly adventurous and exciting story. I couldn't wait to give it a read, especially when I learned that part of it was set in South Africa, my home country. And, being a fan of historical reads, there was just so much to love about this book. It was well-paced and held me captive throughout.
I was sucked into the story from the first page and as the mayhem and adventure continued across the seas to Cape Town, the plot only became more thrilling and action-packed. I enjoyed being taken back in time and it was interesting to go on the journey with Masson as he traversed this new land, while finding out the hard way whom was friend and whom was foe.
This book was filled with twists and turns - betrayal, lies, and a beautiful tale of love, lost and found. A definite must read if you are looking to be taken on an incredible journey. A stunning read.

Release Day Launch + #Giveaway: No In Between by Lisa Renee Jones #InsideOutSeries


Today we're having the release day launch of Lisa Renee Jones No In Between, book 4 in her Inside Out series. Read below for the book info and Lisa's amazing giveaway!!! :)


The fourth in the Inside Out erotic romance series by New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones, this steamy novel resolves Chris and Sarah's relationship and leads into Mark's story.


"Chris and I have faced our demons and bared our souls to one another in Paris. Now that we are back home in San Francisco, I want to believe that nothing can tear us apart. Not Ava’s accusations against me to the police, or Chris's fear that he will destroy me as he feels he did Amber. And not Mark, who was once too intimately a part of our lives, and who I can see crumbling inside out. He believes he is invincible, just as I want to believe Chris and I are invincible. We have to be invincible. We need each other too much for any other ending."




New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones is the author of the highly acclaimed INSIDE OUT SERIES, and is now in development by Suzanne Todd (Alice in Wonderland, Austin Powers, Must Love Dogs) for cable TV. In addition, her Tall, Dark and Deadly series and The Secret Life of Amy Bensen series, both spent several months on a combination of the NY Times and USA Today and USA Today lists.
Since beginning her publishing career in 2007, Lisa has published more than 40 books translated around the world. Booklist says that Jones suspense truly sizzles with an energy similar to FBI tales with a paranormal twist by Julie Garwood or Suzanne Brockmann.
Prior to publishing, Lisa owned multi-state staffing agency that was recognized many times by The Austin Business Journal and also praised by Dallas Women Magazine. In 1998 LRJ was listed as the #7 growing women owned business in Entrepreneur Magazine.
Lisa loves to hear from her readers. You can reach her at and she is active on twitter and facebook daily.
