A Grave Inheritance

“A Grave Inheritance” (Goddess Born) by Kari Edgren

Published as… Historical, Paranormal, New Adult, Romance

About the Book

Selah Kilbrid may descend from the goddess Brigid, but her heart beats—and breaks—the same as any human. Yet enduring the scorn of London’s most noble lords and ladies is a small price to pay for a chance at true happiness. Selah would endure much more for love, and her betrothed, Lord Henry Fitzalan, is prepared to challenge anyone foolish enough to stand in their way—even another goddess born.

But when a captivating young gentleman draws Selah into a world shadowed by secrets, she is forced to confront her darkest fears. What if some differences are too great to overcome and a future with Henry is doomed from the start?

With these doubts threatening her impending marriage and the very last of Brigid’s fire draining from her soul, a violent attack on an innocent child pushes Selah to the very edge of her power. She must find a way to cross into the Otherworld and regain her strength—or forfeit the streets of London to death and disease.

Published as… Paranormal Romance

Shelique Lize’s Boom Baby Blast

1. One Random Fact: I used to like drawing. I haven’t used that talent in a few years and miss it at times.

2. Fictional Character You’d Really Like to Be: lol, Sailor moon. I love how even though she’s scared of half of the monsters that attack, she still manages to push through her fears to protect those she cares about.

3. Your Authorial Theme Song: Wide awake- Katy Perry

4. Favorite Part of Being a Writer: My favorite part of being a writer is that I can watch the fictional universe I created and characters come to life right before my eyes. Day by day they grow and evolve into their own, lol.

5. Name of Your First Pet (Can include family or significant others…): Anaiah

6. Music, Television or Silence While Writing: Music, I love Calm, instrumental music while writing.

7. Early Riser or Night Owl: Night owl.

8. Favorite Season: I’m allergic to winter, lol. Summer all the way.

9. Did You Always Want to be a Writer: I always had a wild imagination and I wrote from when I was young but I was a closet writer. Publishing my work for the world to read was not a thought, up until 5 years ago.

About the Book

Justice Morel always had her life perfectly planned. Her goals were to graduate from the University with exceptional grades and get into the best law school Canada has to offer.

Then one day, Justice tried to kill herself. Well, not her technically. It may have been Justice Morel’s body, but those actions weren’t intentional and the suicidal thoughts were not hers. Or, so she keeps telling her therapist and family.

Justice is afraid she’s losing her mind and just wants to forget everything. But when her best friend is murdered, another one is being mind-screwed by a Vampyre, and her ex is back in town, looking as scrumptious as ever and very suspicious, maybe she isn’t all that crazy!

Just when she thinks that life couldn’t throw her anymore curve balls, Justice figures out that she is Vampyre Doll and there’s a vampyre who seems very familiar to her, but she can’t figure out from where.

Justice is suffocating and drowning in a dark world she’s been tossed into, forced to survive. It’s a world she never wanted to know about and would love to ignore, like it doesn’t exist. But, with every passing day, she’s pulled deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole, wishing for everything to go back to the way it was.

Review: “Predator & Prey” by James D. Horton

“Predator & Prey” by James D. Horton

Available from: Amazon
Released on: 22 July 2014
I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

Description: Lily works the night shift at a radio station, taking calls from forlorn and damaged souls who can’t sleep. She knows their pain and they find solace in her comforting words. The city is ruthless; nameless creatures roam the streets and prey on the lost and innocent.

As she leaves work one night at the crest of dawn, Lily comes face-to-face with depravity. She is a survivor at heart, but she is unfairly outnumbered and surrenders to her fate. From the shadows an ally emerges, the mysterious and alluring, Wolf. After coming to Lily’s aid, he takes her to shelter.

The immediate danger has passed, but the incident is far from over. Wolf tells Lily she is not prey, and sets off into the night with her by his side to set a wrong right. What she sees when entering the dark heart of the city will change her existence forever. Has Wolf taken on a force too big? Will Lily survive the night?

Review: This story was rather short and went very fast, which you know going in that it won’t be long so I’m debating whether I thought it was too fast or not. I don’t think it was, but still feel as though something was missing. I think this felt more like an excerpt from a bigger book than a story, even a short story, on its own.

But, the reading flowed well. It was enjoyable and intriguing. Nothing jumped out about the two main characters to make you dislike either, and the Enigma Thing worked well for the character of Wolf. Still, I think I would have liked to have seen more of a That Spark OMG to really feel their connection.

All that being said, it was a fun, fast read and I think I’m curious to see what more happens with these two. 4 Fireballs.

Kelsey Jordan Author Photo

Kelsey Jordan is the author of The Gardinian World novels. Though she has a preference for all things paranormal and romantic, Kelsey admits she just writes what her muse demands of her. It’s less painful that way.

As a Texas native and self-described Air Force brat, Kelsey now lives in Georgia with her husband and their tutu-wearing minion.

About the Book

Immerse yourself in the first omnibus of Eme Strife’s addictive, sexy, enchanting, and surreal New Adult series. Each page will leave you even more enthralled than the last, on the edge of your seat, and vigorously chomping at the bit for more.
Note: This is NOT like anything you’ve ever read before. Proceed knowing you have been told.

* * *

Moving to San Francisco was a decision twenty-three year old Elisheva Tilton thought would change her hard life in Little Rock, Arkansas, for the better. Yet, Eli still finds herself living in shambles and being constantly stressed out just to make ends meet in the Big Bad Bay.

And the stress only piles on when the most unusual of things begin to happen around her—including the mysterious disappearance of the Atlantic Ocean—and even more so when she strangely meets the unlikely individual who would irrevocably change her life forever; a gorgeous, unbelievably sexy, and sophisticated high-ranking soul reaper.

Rated 17+
This series contains graphic sexual content, violence, and strong language. Because of its explicit nature, it is intended for mature audiences only. Reader discretion is advised.

An Excerpt from The Basilisk’s Creed Omnibus

I was too stunned to speak…to move…to do anything but stare at him like a frickin’ idiot.

In a few quick strides, he was now in front of me and towered over me with intimidation fuming from his body. “I asked you a question,” he barked.

I just kept staring in awe.

Which apparently only infuriated him. He narrowed his eyes and glared at me in the most unapologetic way. He looked unbelievably menacing. It made me extremely uncomfortable, and yet, I still couldn’t look away.

We just kept staring into each other’s eyes…something I found bizarre and weird, because I normally couldn’t maintain eye contact to save my life, especially with eyes as vibrant and intense as his. They were a mix of teal and cornflower blue…really intense, really commanding, and really, really sexy.

I had seen pretty eyes before, but these were just…stunning. Beyond stunning, even. They were pure power.

Shit, did I mention they were sexy?

Oh my God, was I getting turned on? This stranger was yelling and glaring at me like I had killed his family dog and I was getting hot and bothered by him! What the hell was wrong with me?

I broke eye contact in embarrassment and for fear that I would drench my panties if I kept looking at him.

Holy cow, he’s hot. Spicy hot.

There was dead silence for a moment, and while I wondered why he was keeping silent all of a sudden, I couldn’t bring myself to look at him again just yet. Suddenly, his deep voice reverberated in the room.

“You find me attractive?” he quietly asked.

That stunned me. In shocked reflex I quickly looked up to meet his eyes again and found that his previously hard glare had softened somewhat and become more neutral. I looked at him in confusion and embarrassment. I wasn’t sure I had heard him right.

Had I said what I thought of him out loud? I didn’t remember saying anything.

He spoke again. “You’re right. You didn’t actually say anything. But you did think it.”

I couldn’t help but stare at him with what was probably the most quizzical expression I’d ever had plastered across my face.

Um…come again?

Oh, my God. He could read my mind? How was that possible? Was he a soothsayer? One of those palm-readers, maybe?

“H-How…how do you know what I’m thinking?” I stuttered like the confused idiot I was at the moment.

He replied in a matter-of-fact tone. “I can read your energy. You’re pretty transparent.”

I raised my eyebrow on reflex.

Transparent? What the hell is that supposed to mean? I am so not transparent. Hell, last time I checked, I was pretty darn opaque.

He spoke again. “I meant transparent in terms of your expressions and body language, not your physical appearance—”

I cut him off and rolled my eyes. “I know what you meant. And would you stop reading my mind? It’s rude.”

“It’s not like I’m trying to pry. You’re practically screaming the words,” he countered.

I crossed my arms over my chest in defiance. “I haven’t said a single word. You are prying. Cover your ears or something, then.”

He chuckled at that. He had such an attractive chuckle…

Ugh, not that again! Get it the fuck together, Eli. He can tell you’re as hot as a horn dog for him, you know.

Okay, I needed to get out of there before I made a complete ass out of myself in front of this mind-reading man.

Who, by the way, was yelling at you just a minute ago, I reminded myself.

Just as I was about to take a step to walk past him, he stopped me in one effortless motion, cornering me against the pulpit with his arm.

I was trapped between the marble podium and his big body.

About the Author

Eme is an unconventional New Adult Paranormal and Contemporary Romance writer (and a bit of a cynic) who might be going through a quarter-life crisis even though she is in denial of it. Lucky for her, she has several sarcastic, upbeat, and severely vulgar imaginary friends to give her some semblance of normalcy.

She loves writing about said imaginary friends – although she does so mostly because they never seem to shut the hell up.

She’s also addicted to Family Guy, American Dad, and Pandora (the online radio app, not the evil box), drinks an ungodly amount of Red Bull at any given time, wants to marry Seth MacFarlane at some point, and occasionally eats bacon and popcorn together (^_^).

About the Author

Linda Covella Author Photo
Linda Covella’s varied job experience and education (associate degrees in art, business and mechanical drafting & design, a BS degree in Manufacturing Management) have led her down many paths and enriched her life experiences. But one thing she never strayed from is her love of writing.

A writer for over 30 years, her first publication was a restaurant review column, and as a freelance writer, she continued to publish numerous articles in a variety of publications. But when she published articles for children’s magazines (“Games and Toys in Ancient Rome” and “Traveling the Tokaido in 17th Century Japan,” in Learning Through History magazine, and “Barry’s Very Grown Up Day” in Zootles magazine), she realized she’d found her niche: writing for children. She wants to share with kids and teens her love of books: the worlds they open, the things they teach, the feelings they express.

The Castle Blues Quake, a middle grade paranormal, and Yakimali’s Gift, a historical novel for young adults, are her first novels.

She’s a member of Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).

No matter what new paths she may travel down, she sees her writing as a lifelong joy and commitment.
