$25 GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: For the Love of Death by Tamara Rose Blodgett

$25 GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: For the Love of Death by Tamara Rose Blodgett

EXCERPT “Hello?” Gramps voice bellows into the phone like falling gravel. “Hey Gramps, it’s Caleb.” “I know who it is. I’ve got caller ID as part of my bundle, ya know.” Caller ID. The most archaic thing on the planet. Jade’s lips quirk, easily making out his side of the conversation. “He needs another ear replacement,” she says quietly. I nod, putting a finger to my lips. “Right. Listen, Gramps… Deegan and Paxton are MIA. Ya know where they are?” Jade and I stopped at two kids. Felt like ten. There wasn’t enough protection in the world for our kids as Randoms. We still worry. The open line buzzes. “Both the kids were here. Pax and I changed the oil out on the Camaro…” Good, Pax needs that connection. “There was a little incident with Deedie.” Jade covers her mouth with a hand, eyes wide. I wrap her forearm with… Read more »

RELEASE DAY EXCERPT: Resist Me by AO Peart

RELEASE DAY EXCERPT: Resist Me by AO Peart

Excerpt ETHAN This was hopeless. I was lost in her; lost in some stupid, naïve, childish dream. What the hell did she have in her that none of the other women haven’t possessed? I was always in control. Always! She shattered my orderly life and turned my neatly composed world upside fucking down! This couldn’t be happening. This had to stop. I wasn’t looking for any changes, for any altered way of living. But here came Miss Different and kicked everything I so meticulously worked for to the curb. I paced around my bedroom, swearing quietly under my breath, clenching and unclenching my jaw. I stopped by the window and deliberately looked at her. She appeared so soft and small, wrapped in that towel. So alone; all on her own out on that dock. Lonely… Stop that fucking nonsense! I chastised myself. She’s a grown woman, not that sixteen-year-old Afghan… Read more »

$25 GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Athena’s Ashes by Jamie Grey

$25 GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Athena’s Ashes by Jamie Grey

EXCERPT Renna jolted awake as a warm hand brushed against her face. She’d been dreaming again. Of ships and stars and men she’d thought long dead. And right now, she had no idea what was real and what she’d made up in her head. Renna licked her cracked lips and opened her eyes. It took a moment for them to focus on the face hovering above her. A face from her dreams. “Finn,” she croaked. “Shhh.” He smiled down at her, expression full of concern. “Don’t talk, just take it easy. You’re going to be fine.” His fingers brushed a strand of hair away from her cheek, and her skin erupted in goose bumps. If she wasn’t so weak, she’d have thrown herself at him. Instead, she ordered her own hand to touch his. It resisted at first, but eventually it moved and Finn curled his fingers around hers. The… Read more »

$50 GIVEAWAY and DIRTY EXCERPT: FOLLOW  by JA Huss

$50 GIVEAWAY and DIRTY EXCERPT: FOLLOW by JA Huss

EXCERPT I gulp some air and then look over my shoulder. He’s standing near the concrete pathway, leaning up against a closed concession stand, looking as free and content and in control as any person I’ve ever seen. And why not? Why shouldn’t he feel that way? He’s beyond rich, he’s beyond beautiful, he’s beyond talented, and he’s so far beyond sexy, I’m powerless to resist his offer and he knows it. “Say yes,” he commands. “You want to say yes, so just say yes.” He’s so right about that. I do want to say yes. In fact, I’m a yes girl. I hate telling people no. I really do. But for some reason, this one person who I want to say yes to more than anything else in my entire life has reawakened the no girl inside of me and I’m having difficulty understanding why. “Say yes right now… Read more »

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Silent Whisper by Andrea Smith

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Silent Whisper by Andrea Smith

USA Today and Amazon Bestselling author Andrea Smith Silent Whisper (Limbo Series #1) Andrea Smith Paranormal Suspense August 24, 2014   Excerpt I was still distracted as I walked up the concrete sidewalk to my back door, fumbling inside my handbag for my keys. I hadn’t noticed that someone had circled around to the back of the condo, and was a mere six feet away before addressing me. “Karlie Masterson?” the female voice said, causing me to practically jump out of my skin. “I think you might want to listen to what I have to say.” I turned abruptly, clutching my handbag by the straps as if it were a weapon or could be used as one if necessary. “I’m sorry,” the woman said, “I didn’t mean to frighten you.” “Who are you?” “I’m Anna Maria Castellano, Nick’s wife. Can we talk?” Buy Link Amazon B&N   Connect to Andrea… Read more »

$25 GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: The Druid Series 9: Baird by Marata Eros

$25 GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: The Druid Series 9: Baird by Marata Eros

EXCERPT Altho slides them up the bark of the tree, their clothing catching on the rough bark, his eyes latching onto each Were as they approach. It has been many a season since he was unlucky enough to stand face to face with a werewolf. Something calls them from their reclusive natures. Altho shifts Seraphina’s weight and his hand comes away with blood. Of course—Druid blood is a scent that would bring every supernatural who desires it. “Oh dear goddess,” Seraphina says. “I cannot subdue them.” Altho knows this. She is the natural complement to a Reaper or pure-blood Druid male such as himself. Seraphina can be used by the Were, but it would be sacrilege and the only gain would be an early genetic tie to the Were. Most Druid breeders have only vampiric lineage. However, a small percentage have an ancient tie to the cousin of the vampire,… Read more »

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Come Back To Texas by K.K. Hendin

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Come Back To Texas by K.K. Hendin

COME BACK TO TEXAS EXCERPT: Transcript, YouTube video uploaded by user ILoveHayley, entitled ‘Intro’. -camera, probably a webcam, turns on to show a 20-something year old guy sitting on a hospital bed. His face looks like he’s been through hell, his hair sticking up and a bandage covering part of his forehead and one eye. There is a faint sound of beeping, probably from various machines. ILH: Hi, Hayley. This is kinda weird, but this is the only thing I can think of. I don’t think if I sent a letter home anyone would send it to you. Can’t blame them for it, but still. So, hi. I’m just going to babble into this webcam, lookin’ like shit and hoping that maybe you’ll see this. So, I kind of got myself into a little trouble while I was… away, which kinda explains the shitty makeup I’m wearing. ILH *laughs*. ILH:… Read more »

KINDLE GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: The Silver Siren by Chanda Hahn

KINDLE GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: The Silver Siren by Chanda Hahn

EXCERPT “Will you stay close?” It sounded crazy coming from my own mouth, but I needed him near. “I’ll stay as close as you want,” he whispered. Then he sat near me cross-legged. “Is this good?” A small smile played at the corner of his lips. Nodding my head, I curled up in his bedroll and immediately felt comfortable and safe. I yawned and inhaled the smell of him from his blanket. I was definitely tired. “Thalia?” Kael leaned over and spoke into my ear. “Hmmm?” I answered. “Why don’t you want me to leave?” “Mmm. ’Cause you keep the bad things away,” I mumbled sleepily. “What if I am the bad thing?” His thick voice questioned. Was that a hint of fear I heard? “You’re not,” I answered honestly. I was almost asleep when I heard shuffling. My eyes flew open, and I reached out to grab Kael’s arm…. Read more »
