Talen by Rebecca Zanetti

by Rebecca Zanetti

Genre: Paranormal Romance
Pub Date: 6/6/17

She’ll love him forever . . . but he can’t make her obey . . .
The war is over. Danger has passed. Cara Kayrs is healed after decades of illness and ready for a break.
Too bad her brooding, alpha vampire husband can’t seem to change gears. In their twenty-five years together Talen Kayrs has learned to sense every shiver of her body, to ignite her desire with a word or a look. She would think he could learn she’s not some fragile damsel in distress.
But Talen is on edge, watching their backs, treating her like she’s made of glass. Like there’s something following them, a deadly threat that somehow none of their intelligence has uncovered. It’s enough to drive a woman crazy, and Talen has plenty of those tendencies already.
But what’s even more maddening is that he seems to be right . . .

Soul Bound by Jas T. Ward

Soul Bound : The Warrior
Soul Bound Series Book 1
by Jas T. Ward
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Releases June 13th, 2017!!

Death May Be The End...

But Love Doesn't Give A @&%#.

Jace Camden is haunted by his past. One that has many believing he got 
away with murder. He’s on the run from it, trying to start a new life in a new 
town. But his past won’t let won’t him escape, and it’s determined that his future will not long. 
Death will demand its due… and his dead wife will make sure that debt is paid in full.

Kitt Thomas’ life is in a rut, but that changed when she looked into the sad, haunted eyes, of Jace Camden. Something about his wounded soul called to her—like a like a whisper of a melody in a mysterious abyss she should have the sense to ignore.

But his past will make sure Kitt is no more part of Jace’s future than life is.
Because he’s Soul Bound – and that’s a shackle that can only be broken by death.

It's not about the Happily Ever After...
It's about surviving the read. 

*Warning - this book deals with the subject of death, grief in a graphically realistic and dark manner*

"I am the product of several realities making the whole: a troubled childhood, domestic violence survivor, homeless person, single mother and a suicide survivor. But in every single one of those realities, one thing remained true - my imagination.

Reading and writing has always been Ward's escape. And she wants to continue to give that to her readers. Known for action, drama, laughter, darkness and twists you don't see coming in the same book, Ward is known for writing books that are diverse, different and unique. 

Born and raised in Texas and spending time living in Kentucky, Ms. Ward spends her days and nights writing as therapy to handle surviving domestic violence and loss of love. She is the proud parent of three very independent grown children and grandmother to three delightful grandchildren.

She has two furbabies that sit and ponder why their human is talking to herself late into the night as she writes out colorful and diverse if not twisted characters and tales.

Rising Tide: Dark Innocence (book is now perma free) by Claudette Melanson

Claudette Melanson writes dark fantasy in Kitchener, Ontario with four bun babies: Tegan, Pepper, Butters & Beckett. She graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a BA in English, BS in English Education and an MA in Literature. Harboring a deep admiration of vampires since the age of five left her with the desire to eventually become one, and now fuels the creation of her favorite paranormal characters. She hopes to one day work full time as an author, since there are many, many stories playing out inside her head.

In her very scant spare time, she enjoys watching Japanese Anime and reading vampire stories...along with other genres of great fiction, as well as riding every roller coaster she encounters in both her hometown and away at signings. An advocate for good health and ketogenic eating, her favorite foods are bulletproof coffee, cashew-flour crust pizza and treats made with xylitol and almond, coconut or cashew flours.

Future dreams include a cabin boasting a roaring fire, isolated inside a snow-filled wood in the Yukon—the perfect writing spot—and the completion of dozens of future novels and stories. A Rabbit Rescue fanatic and loving bunmom, she also hopes to help rescues all over the world save many innocent lives.

When a cruel prank nearly claims Maura’s life, one of her classmates, Ron, rushes to her rescue. Darkly handsome & mysteriously accepting, Ron doesn’t seem to want to stay away, but Maura is reluctant to get too close, since her mother has announced she’s moving the two of them to Vancouver…nearly 3,000 miles away from their hometown of Indiana, Pennsylvania.

If life wasn’t already challenging enough, Maura begins to experience bizarre, physical changes her mother seems hell bent on ignoring, compelling Maura to fear for her own life. Vicious nightmares, blood cravings, failing health and the heart-shattering loss of Ron—as well as the discovery of a tangled web of her own mother's lies—become obstacles in Maura's desperate quest for the unfathomable truth she was never prepared to uncover.

This book is now free on Amazon!!!

Q & A:

1.  If you had 3 wishes, what would they be?
To be able to write full time for a living
That my bunnies could live as long as I do
To be a vampire, of course (then we would all be immortal, lol)

2.          Where do you write?
Mostly at home in the LR where I can watch my four bunnies play and interact. I love having a scary movie on in the background for inspiration.

3  How long does it normally take you to write a novel?
If it’s Maura it can go fast. I took six years to write Rising Tide, but that one was my first. I did Undertow in 9 months and Riptide in 5 months. It really varies on the subject matter/characters, but I hope to keep getting faster.

4.  What are your inspirations?
Other books and movies. The Twilight series was a huge source of inspiration. I’ve always drawn from Stephen King and Ernest Hemingway. American Horror Story, 13 Ghosts. I absorb every scary thing I see/read. I also love to have background music on. It can really get me in the right frame of mind.

5.  How did you come to write this particular book or series?
I dreamed about Maura for years. I know her very well since I fleshed her out inside my head so often after those dreams. Vampires have always been my favorite characters, so that part was a given.

6.  What was the hardest part of writing your book, and how did you overcome it?
Finishing the first one. I’ve always had so many book ideas and starts but never carried one all the way through. I also wanted to work on my writing to make sure it was good enough to put out there. When I was halfway done with Rising Tide, I thought to myself that I needed to make the big push and get it done. I worked at it every day until I finally did it and didn’t start working on anything else. I learned there are no limits when you really set your mind to something.

7.  What is your writing drive? The power that keeps you going when your writing gets difficult?
I mostly think of all I want to accomplish. I want a huge library of titles online like Bella Forrest or Stephen King. I just tell myself to keep the ball rolling, because if I quit or give up, I’ll never accomplish what I want to do. The only thing is to move forward. I have a few really good writing buddies who help to keep me going too! (Thanks Sherri, Laura & Lynn). Kind words from my readers always remind me why I’m doing this as well, both for them and for me.

8.  How did you come up with the title?
I knew this would be a trilogy, so I wanted three titles that went well together, made up a theme. I love the ocean, so I thought of Undertow first and then the other two titles just came to me easily. There are a fair amount of water metaphors and the titles fit well with the turbulence going on in Maura’s life.

9.  Name one entity that you feel supported you outside of family member?
Tome Tender Book Blog was one of the first to give me a chance and a blog review. Anytime I’ve had a book out or a promo going, Dianne Bylo is always ready to help. I really hate it when some of the blogs don’t give Indies a chance, but she welcomes Indie authors with welcome arms. She really works hard on that blog, and it shows. I appreciate her help and support very much…along with many others in the book world.

Venators: Magic Unleashed by Devri Walls

Devri Walls is the best-selling author of six YA fantasy novels. She is a theater major with a flare for the dramatic and wishes more than anything for a magic wand. Devri is from Boise Idaho where she lives with her husband, two kids and the cutest mutt of a dog the world has ever seen.

Connect with the Author here: 

"Six years ago, Grey Malteer was attacked by creatures he thought couldn’t possibly exist. They repeated a word, calling him a name he’d never heard before…Venator. Since then, his life has been a hellhole of secrecy—hiding old pain alongside strange new abilities.

Rune Jenkins has an itch, as she calls it, but it’s more than that. It’s an anger that builds up like the inside of a boiler whenever she’s around anything remotely supernatural. The pressure is growing steadily worse and she can’t understand why. All she knows is—her control is slipping.

By order of an unknown council Grey and Rune are pulled through a portal in the St. Louis arch, landing them in an alternate dimension where creatures of myth and legend exist. A realm that calls them, Venators.

Made up of centuries old fae, vampires, werewolves, elves and succubi the council’s corrupt nature becomes obvious as they seek to wield the newly returned Venators as weapons. Wedged in an impossible position, Grey and Rune must decide their fate—do they go against the council’s wishes and help the innocents of this unforgiving land, or face the possibility of execution by the council."

She just wants to use him for revenge. 

A billionaire MMA fighter whose cocky smile and washboard abs make wet panties drop left and right. 
She thinks she wants him for one amazing night out and end it. 
Boy, did she think wrong. 

He's about to teach her how much more she really wants. 

Finding out your husband's cheating is hard. 
Finding out it’s with a college girl is even harder. 
The easy part? Retribution: beating him blue with a baseball bat and kicking him to the curb. 
But it's still not enough. 

So when Bobby Carter, fresh out of college, blows back into town with all the intensity of a hurricane, I decide I’m not done. 
Bobby’s everything my ex-husband is not. Sexy, aggressive, and intense. 
Like melt me into a puddle intense. 

Who cares if I used to babysit him? 
He’s a grown man, now. And I mean, FULLY grown. 

All I wanted was a night out with him, but one taste and I’m addicted. 

When Lisa Howard finally gets rid of her cheating husband, I want to take her right then and there. 
I got rid of that abusive bastard and built a billion dollar empire all for her. 
Nothing could satisfy my ravenous hunger but taking a bite of that sweet little thing. 

So when she offers herself up to me for one night, I'm not about to refuse. 
She's nothing like the sorority bimbos at Northfield U. 
She is a real woman. 
Sexy, mature, and an ass so fine I would give up my billions just for a taste. 

But I know a taste won’t be enough and one night too short for all the dirty things I want to do to her and that deliciously curvy body. 

She’ll be mine, but not just for tonight. Forever. 

This is a full-length, standalone, steamy 18+ romance. No cheating or cliffhangers, and definitely a wonderful Happily Ever After guaranteed.

Hi everyone! I'm Lilah May (well, you already know that).

I write steamy romance that will touch your heart (and your body <3 all="" in="" right="" span="" the="" ways.="">
Ok, maybe it sounds a little corny but it's true!
I make sure my books are full of hot and dirty scenes but still has that oh so important warm sentimental love.

Anywho, I'm just a girl with too many dirty thoughts going through her head and I thought I'd share them with all of you!

Though I have to warn you: be prepared!
These stunning alpha male heroes I write about are straight out of my fantasies: impossibly sexy, crazy dominant, and 110% guaranteed to make your knees weak.
So you better sit down, grab a towel and leave all your inhibitions at the door (along with your panties) because my books will make you melt and squirm with HEA love!

Side note: I like my cookies chewy and I've learned way too late in my life that I can microwave them for ten seconds to make them chewy again. I don't hate on crunchy, though. Cookies are cookies lol.

Oh, and also I'm a nurse so when I get my hands on a real good book, things can get incredibly dangerous! (That's a joke for all you stuffy wet blankets. I would never risk my patients. I love them!)
