{Blog Tour + Giveaway} Born In Blood - By Alexandra Ivy

SQUUUUUEEEE!!! I am SO pumped to be able to introduce you guys to Alexandra Ivy's lastest masterpiece, Born In Blood!!!

Not only do you get a drool over this beautiful cover, BUT, I get to share part of a Sentinel Story with you!!!


In The Heart Of Darkness
Sergeant Duncan O'Conner has seen it all before. Beautiful erotic dancer, murdered at home, no suspect, no motive. But there's one clue: she's missing her heart. It's enough to make the hard-bitten Kansas City cop enlist the help of a necro--one of the dead-channelling freaks who live in the domed city of nearby Valhalla. It's a long shot, but desperate crimes call for desparate measures.

Lies The Kiss Of Death Unlike the other "high-bloods" in Valhalla, Callie Brown considers her abilities a gift, not a curse. But when she reads the dancer's final thoughts, she senses a powerful presence blocking her vision. This is no ordinary homicide. This is the work of a legendary necromancer who controls souls. A ravenous force that will put Callie's skills to the test, O'Conner's career at risk, and both their hearts on the line. . .literally.

AVAILABLE 12/31/14

Each blog on this tour was given a different section of the Sentinel Story.....ready for my part of the story?? 

Here you go:


Part Two

Which was the only reason she hadn’t slammed the door in Anton Valik’s face the first time he’d shown up, claiming he was a representative from Valhalla.  He was a part of some mysterious order that tracked down high-bloods and he promised there was a place for Charlie where he would be surrounded by people who were like him.

Over the next month Anton had been a regular visitor to her small apartment on the outskirts of Boston, his exotic beauty making her forget how to breath as he’d gently put Charlie through a series of tests and, at the same time, earning his trust.  Eventually he’d invited Charlie to travel to Valhalla where he could learn how to control his powers.

Jayne couldn’t deny her brother the opportunity to fulfill his destiny.  Even if it ripped out her heart to have him taken away.  So she’d dutifully brought him to Valhalla and watched him walk away.  But she couldn’t leave.  Not until she was absolutely, positive they would treat him well.

It’d seemed perfectly reasonable until she found herself facing certain death.

Now she struggled to keep her knees from buckling in abject terror.

If she was going to face the firing line, she was going to do it on her feet.

Then, without warning, the crowd of Sentinels parted and a tall, man strolled toward her.

Anton Valik. 

Her heart slammed against her ribs at the sight of the painfully beautiful high-blood.  It wasn’t just his shoulder-length, dark hair that framed his finely chiseled face that sent electric jolts of awareness through her.  Or the pale eyes that shimmered like silver in the moonlight.   Or even the hard, utterly lickable body that was shown to advantage beneath the thin, v-neck sweater and black silk slacks.  

It was the way he looked at her as if he were seeing straight to her soul. 


 Now take all this amazing-ness and enter the giveaway below!

Here's what you could win:

First Place:  $50 GC to Amazon or B&N
Second Place: $25 GC to Amazon or B&N
Third Place:  $10 GC to Amazon to B&N

{Nerd Blast + Giveaway} Trinkets, Treasure and Other Bloody Magic - By Meghan Ciana Doidge


Three months ago, I lost my foster sister, Sienna, to the darkness. As in blood magic and chaos and general mayhem. No one saw it until it was too late, but I should have. Now, I have a wounded heart and soul that I can’t even reveal to anyone around me, because I’m supposed to hate Sienna with the fiery passion of the justified. And I do. I just wish I didn’t feel so lost without her, so unsure of the path I thought I had carved for myself, and so outclassed by the powerful Adepts constantly by my side these days. I’m not even sure if they’re with me for my own protection or because my shiny new powers are rare and valuable. Assuming I ever figure out who or what I am, and how my magic actually works.
Even chocolate can’t save the day every time … just most of the time. At least I’ve got that going for me.

{Blog Tour} Review: Beautiful Rose - By Missy Johnson


Author: Missy Johnson  
Release Date: 10/24/2013  10/24/20113
Purchase Info: Amazon

Jack Falcon is a new man. Three years after he left his life behind in London, Jack finally feels settled. He’s surrounded with everything that is important to him; a great relationship with his brother, Alex, a bar he is about to re-open, and most importantly, he has control of his life and his dreams. He knows he can’t undo the wrongs of his past, but he sure as hell can determine his future. He has worked hard to move forward and nothing is going to undo that.

Until he meets Rose.
Rose Wilson has never felt normal. Since she was a child, Rose has felt nothing but the overwhelming desire to end her life and she has no idea why. We live to die, so what’s the point in living? Rose has pushed the limits in the past, and pushed people away. She can’t figure out why Jack and Alex are so insistent on helping her. Twelve years of therapy has failed to help her, so why should they be any different?
Jack sees just how beautiful and important Rose is, but convincing her of that means putting his heart on the line, something he isn’t sure he can do. He can’t deny his feeling for Rose, but that doesn’t mean he has to act on them. And Jack isn’t the only one developing feelings for Rose.

Before Rose, Jack vowed he would never let himself fall in love again.

Before Rose, he had control.

But sometimes, it’s losing control that makes you really see what’s really important in your life.

Even broken people fall in love.....

It's hard to fall in love, but when you have a situation like Jack & Rose's....well that's a little bit different. 
They're both broken to the point that they just push each other away, and there were honestly times when I wanted to shake the shit out of Jack! 
Who cares if you're got muscles for days, a sexy ass accent, and unruly hair that Chris Hemsworth envies....I will shake some sense into you! Don't make me do it!
(See this is what fictional boyfriends make me do!)

Emotions ran extremely high in this book, but I honestly never felt overwhelmed or lost in them. As Jack & Rose's relationship blossoms,you discover things about each of them that completely make you understand why each of them is scared. Now about the crazy bitch "ex-girlfriend", who by the way I want to punch, is one of the rudest characters I've ever had the pleasure of reading about. Congrats to the author for making sure Harmony's essence screams Psycho! :-)

For some reason it didn't hit me that there was no type of paranormal element to this book until I was basically done with it. Any type of contemporary romance, or chick lit, usually isn't my thing......Beautiful Rose was different. I was wrapped up in this fantastic journey of self discover, self worth and realizing that even if you have flaws you're worthy of love!

{Book Blitz + Giveawat} Tethered - By Brandi Leigh Hall

Today I am beyond pleased to introduce you you all to, Tethered, by Brandi Leigh Hall.

Not only does Tethered have a gorgeous cover, but the plot is absolutely intriguing!


No matter how hard you fight it—destiny has a mind of its own!

Since foreseeing the imminent death of her parents six years earlier, Chloe has lived a simple, not-so-charmed-life away from her remaining Wiccan family.

Zero magic.

No close friendships.

While struggling to bench-press more guilt than any nineteen-year-old ever should. But fate intervenes and forces Chloe to return home. As if being an in-the-closet-Seer wasn’t bad enough, now she has to spend summer break with the snarky sister who hates her—and the magical birthright she was hell-bent on denying for all eternity.

Luckily, meeting Mr. Perfect takes the edge off her endless family drama. Hunter’s twenty-five, sometimes old-fashioned in a Jane Austen hero sort of way, and more delicious than molten-lava cake. But the more she tries to hide her family’s magical secrets from this ever-present stranger, the more quickly she realizes he’s hiding a few doozies of his own.

Will the lies and betrayal destroy their relationship before it really begins? Or will learning of their tethered future create an unbreakable bond neither can deny?

Either way, their hearts will be forever entwined by destiny.

{Blog Tour} Review: Lichgates - By S.M. Boyce


Author: S.M. Boyce
Release Date: 10/15/2011
Purchase Info: Amazon (FREE) ~ B&N (FREE)
Kara Magari is about to discover a beautiful world full of terrifying things—Ourea.

Kara, a college student still reeling from her mother’s recent death, has no idea the hidden world of Ourea even exists until a freak storm traps her in a sunken library. With no way out, she opens an ancient book of magic called the Grimoire and unwittingly becomes its master, which means Kara now wields the cursed book’s untamed power. Discovered by Ourea's royalty, she becomes an unwilling pawn in a generations-old conflict—a war intensified by her arrival. In this world of chilling creatures and betrayal, Kara shouldn’t trust anyone… but she’s being hunted and can’t survive on her own. She drops her guard when Braeden, a native soldier with a dark secret, vows to keep her safe. And though she doesn’t know it, her growing attraction to him may just be her undoing.

For twelve years, Braeden Drakonin has lived a lie. The Grimoire is his one chance at redemption, and it lands in his lap when Kara Magari comes into his life. Though he begins to care for this human girl, there is something he wants more. He wants the Grimoire.

Welcome to Ourea, where only the cunning survive.

Utterly beautiful from page 1!

If I had to describe Lichgates in just a single word it would be lavish

In a world that simply jumps off the pages, creatures who terrify your nightmares & exceed your wildest dreams, there wasn't a single aspect that I felt wasn't covered in this amazing book. Plots flowed, each character held a purpose, and I devoured extremely quick.
