Cover Reveal: Bound By Forever: A True Immortality Novel by S. Young

New York Times Bestselling author Samantha Young writing as S. Young has revealed the cover for Bound by Forever: A True Immortality Novel!

Releasing: November 17, 2020

Cover Designer: Hang Le

Photographer: Regina Wamba

Niamh Farren has been burdened by knowledge for most of her life. As one of seven fae children born into the human world with the ability to open the gate to Faerie, Niamh’s mission is to guide her fae brethren to do what’s right. Because Niamh has seen what will happen to the human world if she does not protect the gate. Throughout the years, she’s traveled the world with her brother Ronan, using her psychic visions to find the fae-borne and convince them to stay on the path that will keep the gate from opening. She has sacrificed much … but when she loses her brother to the mission, Niamh begins to lose herself.

For nearly one hundred and fifty years, werewolf Kiyo has wandered the planet as a lost soul. Cursed with immortality, he spends his awful eternity as a mercenary for hire. When the powerful Fionn Mór confides the truth about the existence of Faerie and hires Kiyo to protect one of the fae-borne, he accepts the challenge out of boredom, not heroism. Yet Niamh is unexpected in every way the werewolf can possibly imagine.

Guarding Niamh from her enemies is nowhere near as challenging as protecting the fae woman from herself. If Kiyo is to succeed, he must help Niamh find herself again, and not just for her sake. Ignoring the fierce connection between them may no longer be an option. A new enemy is rising and threatening to rip open the gate between worlds. To remind Niamh of who she really is, Kiyo must make the choice to lower his defenses and give into their bond. Or safeguard his own heart … and in doing so lead the human world to the brink of war.

Book Blurb:

I always knew I was different.

From a young age, my mind has been plagued with things only I could see. Some hauntingly beautiful, others completely terrifying. Never knowing if these visions were real or just hallucinations, I learned how to lock them down and ignore them. I learned to take solace in the relative anonymity of city life and find peace in the rainy days my city of Seattle is known for.

But just when I think my life is getting on track and my dreams are achievable, a moment of weakness causes me to learn a hard and fast lesson.

My entire existence has been a lie.

Now I’m faced with a new reality that’s as implausible as it is fantastical. Filled with realms and veils, light and dark, fae and daemons, gods and angels—things I don’t understand but am forced to acknowledge. It doesn’t help that the man teaching me about my unique gifts is the gorgeously handsome Carrick Byrne, one of Seattle’s richest and most powerful men. He intimidates, annoys, and intrigues me all at the same time. I don’t trust him and yet there’s no one else to help me.

No longer certain who to put my faith in, what to believe, or how I fit into it all, one revelation is clear…

The world as I know it will never be the same again.

Twilight fans, rejoice! We’ve all been waiting for it for years and the day is finally here! I don’t know about you guys, but I will be spending my day wrapped up in Midnight Sun!!

It’s here! #1 bestselling author Stephenie Meyer makes a triumphant return to the world of Twilight with this highly anticipated companion: the iconic love story of Bella and Edward told from the vampire’s point of view.

When Edward Cullen and Bella Swan met in Twilight, an iconic love story was born. But until now, fans have heard only Bella’s side of the story. At last, readers can experience Edward’s version in the long-awaited companion novel, Midnight Sun.

This unforgettable tale as told through Edward’s eyes takes on a new and decidedly dark twist. Meeting Bella is both the most unnerving and intriguing event he has experienced in all his years as a vampire. As we learn more fascinating details about Edward’s past and the complexity of his inner thoughts, we understand why this is the defining struggle of his life. How can he justify following his heart if it means leading Bella into danger?

In Midnight Sun, Stephenie Meyer transports us back to a world that has captivated millions of readers and brings us an epic novel about the profound pleasures and devastating consequences of immortal love.

“People do not want to just read Meyer’s books; they want to climb inside them and live there.” — Time

Releasing: October 27, 2020

From New York Times Bestselling Author, Kristen Proby, comes Spells, the next installment in her gripping Bayou Magic series…

As a powerful hedgewitch and psychic, there isn’t much I can’t work to my advantage and finesse with a spell. Love, fortune, and even the perfect cup of coffee are all possible with the snap of my fingers.

But some things are utterly beyond my control.

Like the powerful and broody warlock who’s been a part of my life for as long as I can remember–and even the lifetimes I often can’t. Things almost as dangerous as Lucien Bergeron’s hold on me and the breathtaking smiles only I get to see.

Or the evil still stalking the streets of New Orleans that beckons to me to see. To feel. To die.

With everything riding on a razors-edge, and things that have been portended coming to fruition, threatening both me and those I love, I’m not sure if I’m strong enough to resist my fate. Or his charm.

If I work with Lucien, it could mean the end for both of us.

If I don’t, those I love most will pay.

Review: The Queen (A Wicked Trilogy #3.7) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Posted on

From #1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes the next installment in her Wicked series.

The King must have his Queen….

Bestowed the forbidden Summer’s Kiss by the King of the Summer fae, Brighton Jussier is no longer just human. What she is, what she will become, no one knows for sure, but that isn’t her biggest concern at the moment. Now Caden, the King, refuses to let her go, even at the cost of his Court. When the doorway to the Otherworld is breached, both Brighton and Caden must do the unthinkable—not just to survive themselves, but also to save mankind from the evil that threatens the world.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.** 

MY REVIEW

“I could not risk the world. Not even for love.”

“You are my sun, Brighton. I loved you before I found you in that club, even before I gave you the Summer Kiss.”

The Queen is finally here!!! I don’t know about you guys, but after finishing The King, I was dying to get this book into my greedy little hands and let me tell you, this book does not disappoint. In this next installment of the Wicked Series, The Queen picks up right where The King left off. Brighton is dealing not only with the aftermath of her time with Aric, but also the unexpected card that fate dealt her. While everything should be sunshine and rainbows now that she is home safe with Caden, Brighton can’t focus on the bright side. She knows that Caden must make a choice, but there is no way he will ever let her go. Will Brighton and Caden succumb to the unthinkable in order to save his court?? There’s only one way to find out….

The Queen was a quick and easy read for me. Even though some time has passed since I read The King, I was immediately sucked back into the Wicked world and everything from the last book came rushing back to me. The latest installment of the Wicked Series, both Caden and Brighton are faced with some tough decisions. Truths will be laid out and loyalties will be tested. The bond between Caden and Brighton is stronger than ever, despite all the cards fate keeps throwing at them. Brighton is the toughest and strongest that her character has been to date. She isn’t afraid of making tough decisions or putting her heart on the line. And Caden…OMG, do I love Caden. His faith and devotion to Brighton was awe-inspiring and made me love his character even harder. It was impossible to not root for these two.

The Queen was the perfect ending to Caden and Brighton’s story. I easily devoured this book in a single sitting and couldn’t put it down. I loved the action and romance. I loved the tough moments that pulled at my heart and the shocking ones that kept my eyes glued to the pages. Throw in a few cameos from a couple beloved characters, and you got yourself one fantastic read. I enjoyed every single second of this story from beginning to end, and while this installment does wrap things up pretty nicely, I will say that the ending felt pretty open to me, so there is hope that there could be more stories in the future….

Roksana, heiress to the vampire slayer throne, has performance anxiety.

She’s supposed to kill Elias, but so far she’s only succeeded in maxing out his credit card. Now her failure to stake the brooding vampire has sent her back to Moscow in disgrace to face her mother’s wrath. Expecting punishment by death, she’s given a rare reprieve. She now has three tasks to complete, the last of which is to finally kill Elias. She will not fail this time.

If only the memories of one magical evening—back when Elias was human—would stop holding her back. He claims to have forgotten that night. Why can’t she?

Three years ago, Elias was a SWAT team member on a guy’s weekend in Vegas. Playing poker and minding his own business, his life changed forever when a captivating blonde strolled past his table in a light-up bra. He followed Roksana as if compelled, his very bones demanding he do so, his soul resonating with the belief she would be important to him. Always. That turned out to be a vast understatement—and nothing has changed.

Roksana embarks on her mission, determined to win back her mother’s approval, but when an astonishing truth emerges in the eleventh hour, will her stake pierce the very heart that beats in her honor? Or will love triumph over duty?

Review: From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Posted on

Captivating and action-packed, From Blood and Ash is a sexy, addictive, and unexpected fantasy perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Laura Thalassa.

A Maiden…

Chosen from birth to usher in a new era, Poppy’s life has never been her own. The life of the Maiden is solitary. Never to be touched. Never to be looked upon. Never to be spoken to. Never to experience pleasure. Waiting for the day of her Ascension, she would rather be with the guards, fighting back the evil that took her family, than preparing to be found worthy by the gods. But the choice has never been hers.

A Duty…

The entire kingdom’s future rests on Poppy’s shoulders, something she’s not even quite sure she wants for herself. Because a Maiden has a heart. And a soul. And longing. And when Hawke, a golden-eyed guard honor bound to ensure her Ascension, enters her life, destiny and duty become tangled with desire and need. He incites her anger, makes her question everything she believes in, and tempts her with the forbidden.

A Kingdom…

Forsaken by the gods and feared by mortals, a fallen kingdom is rising once more, determined to take back what they believe is theirs through violence and vengeance. And as the shadow of those cursed draws closer, the line between what is forbidden and what is right becomes blurred. Poppy is not only on the verge of losing her heart and being found unworthy by the gods, but also her life when every blood-soaked thread that holds her world together begins to unravel.

Purchase on Amazon

MY REVIEW

“From Blood And Ash We Shall Rise.”

“I don’t care what you are.” “I care about who you are.”

“Some truths do nothing but destroy and decay what they do no obliterate. Truths do not always set one free. Only a fool who has spent their entire life being fed lies believes that.”

Poppy’s life has never been her own. As a maiden, she lives her life mostly in solitude waiting for the day that she will ascend. Unlike most maiden’s Poppy would rather spend her days training and learning to fight, then trying to be worthy of the “gods”. If only she was allowed to think or make decisions for herself….Hawke has sworn his life to protect the maiden as her royal guard. He drives Poppy crazy and makes her question everything she ever thought she knew….

From Blood and Ash is a refreshing and exciting new story from author Jennifer Armentrout. This book blends all the themes of fantasy and paranormal romance and brings forth an unforgettable tale of romance and betrayal…

From Blood and Ash captivated me from the very first page. Author Jennifer Armerntrout created a world and characters that I just couldn’t get enough of. From the moment I was introduced to Poppy, I was desperate to learn more about her story. Her life seemed so perfect, like she was being tasked with this incredible honor. But, as you dive deeper into the story, truths will be exposed and you will see that Poppy’s life is anything but perfect. And when Hawke comes into the picture, all bets are off. Hawke is everything that is forbidden to Poppy, but no matter how much she knows she should stay away, she can’t fight the pull. Hawke and Poppy had some pretty incredible chemistry and I loved watching the two of them together. Even though nothing is what is seems, and my heart was all tangled up in knots, I still found myself waiting with baited breath to see what would happen next.

My immediate thoughts after finishing this book is “What in the world did I just read?” and “I desperately need more.” From Blood and Ash is fresh and exciting and will leave you begging for more. This story has some amazing world building and I loved all of the fantasy elements. Even if you are not a fantasy reader, I promise this as story that you can get behind and just devour. From action and danger, to romance and intrigue, to exciting twists and turns, From Blood and Ash left me on the edge of my seat and had my heart racing.

Jennifer Armentrout totally knocked it out of the park with this book and as the story comes to an end, I’m left with a ton of questions and I can not wait to have them all answered….

Blog Tour: Lethal Game (GhostWalkers #16) by Christine Feehan

Posted on

The sparks of unexpected passion ignite in this electrifying GhostWalker novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan.

When Malichai Fortunes attacks a problem, he does it full force–a habit that earns the GhostWalker a painful injury and a forced vacation in San Diego, California. With nothing but physical therapy on the horizon, Malichai is starting to get restless…until a striking blue-eyed blonde makes all his senses come alive.

Amaryllis is kind and warm and sees beyond Malichai’s rough exterior, but he can tell there’s something she’s hiding. Her innate healing abilities indicate she might be a GhostWalker–albeit an untrained one. Malichai doesn’t think their crossing paths is anything more than coincidence, but he can sense that one wrong word could send Amaryllis running.

When strange events at his temporary retreat put Malichai on high alert, he knows he won’t be able to deal with the threat and keep his woman safe in his weakened state. But calling in his brothers means telling Amaryllis what he really is, and revealing that he knows the truth about her too…

EXCERPT

Malichai made his way to the dining room. A prickle of awareness crept down his spine and his gaze swept the nearly empty room. One other person sat by herself at a table in the corner. She was reading a book—a romance—and he smirked when he saw it. She was a gorgeous woman and he tried not to stare at her. She was a blonde, but her hair was so thick, he doubted if the color could be natural. Most blondes just had finer or thinner hair than that. He must have been looking too closely because she glanced up. He could tell that first glance was simple idle curiosity but then she stiffened, and her gaze wholly focused on him.

Her eyes were gorgeous, a startling blue, like jewels. So deep blue they were almost certainly contacts. She glanced back down at her book, but he could tell she wasn’t reading it anymore. He’d probably scared her. He wasn’t like some of his fellow GhostWalkers, who seemed to walk into a room and have half the female population enthralled—and that had nothing to do with their enhancements and everything to do with their good looks, charisma, or both, none of which he had.

The breakfast was set up buffet style with a long row of warmers laid out on a table. He would have his back to the room when he served himself food, but he seemed to be the last man to breakfast. The moment he’d walked in he became uneasy, but no one was there but the two of them—the blonde and him. Was the threat coming from her? Was it even a threat? He was on vacation. Didn’t that mean there was no threat? Hell if he knew.

He dished himself food, standing sideways to keep her in sight. Her gaze jumped to him and she lowered the book partway, both feet coming to the floor, when she’d been relaxed, one leg curled up under her. He sent her a cocky grin.

“See you’re readin’ my favorite book.”

She narrowed her eyes at him. “You have no idea what I’m reading.”

He was an enhanced GhostWalker with the very sharp eyes of an eagle. “It’s a romance titled Toxic Game.” He hoped he didn’t have to describe what the book was about because he didn’t have a clue.

She glanced down at the book as if she couldn’t believe he knew the title. When she looked back up at him, his heart went a little crazy. The sun hit her just right, turning her blond hair into a waterfall of ice and gold sparkles. The strands actually dazzled his eyes for a moment, so that he lost sight of her. Her image blurred. He could only see that amazing, overpowering shine.

He blinked to bring her into focus. When he managed to get her back in his sight, he found himself staring into her vivid jeweled eyes, eyes blazing blue flames at him.

“You do not read romance books.” Her chin went up. “There’s absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to read about men who believe in monogamy. I doubt you’d know anything about that.”

He took a chair facing her and drank his coffee slowly, studying her furious little face. She was beautiful all riled up. His heart was going a little crazy and all at once he felt very much alive. Maybe this vacation thing wasn’t going to be so bad.

“What makes you think that? If I read romances, clearly I like happy endings and I prefer books where men and women are faithful to one another.” It was all about thinking fast on one’s feet. Any GhostWalker should be excellent at that.

“I think you’re so full of—” she broke off as a woman came into the doorway, clearly agitated, so much so that she seemed to completely miss that Malichai was even in the room.

The coffee finished dripping, and Julia poured two mugs in silence. She turned to face Charlie, handing him one of the mugs. “We need to figure out what’s happening here.”

“You don’t’ have to convince me. As distressing as it is to take on the painful memories of others, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that being a miracle worker comes with side effects.”

Julia laughed. “Stop calling yourself that.”

“What? Miracle worker? What would you call me?”

She stared at him for a moment, but nothing clever came to mind. “I got nothing.”

“Then don’t judge.”

Julia sobered. “But why? Why side effects? You do the world a favor! As far as Amara’s concerned, you’re some kind of freaking Savior or something. Why should you suffer?”

“Why should anyone? What makes me less entitled to my share of suffering?”

“This isn’t your share. This is other peoples’ share.”

“I don’t know…there’s always balance, right? The Fountain of youth heals you, but it makes a killer of you. The antidote spares you from such a fate, but you’ll be sick or mortal again. Everything has a cost. A counterweight.”

“I supposed. Still—“

Charlie set his coffee on the small spread of counter and wrapped his arms around Julia. He pierced her gaze with his chocolate eyes.

“Can you just enjoy the moments I’m sane?” Pushing a tendril of hair out of her face, he laid a kiss on her forehead. “I have an idea. We’re up early. How about we try to catch the sunrise?”

“I think that’s an excellent idea.”

Hand in hand, they retreated to the porch. Julia draped herself across Charlie’s lap, and they sat in quiet content, waiting for the sun to take its first glimpse over the horizon.

“Ah, this is what I always imagined.” Charlie’s eyes were closed, his arms wrapped around Julia as he held her close to his body.

“These are the perfect moments,” Julia agreed. “When I was out on the road hunting down all those who had a drink from the Fountain, I would often wonder what a quiet morning would be like with you. Or an uneventful evening. Sometimes I felt so far from the girl I was, I wondered if I’d be able to enjoy something normal like this with you.”

“And can you?”

“So far, so good.”

She kissed Charlie’s nose.

Charlie tipped Julia’s chin with his finger, lifting her gaze to meet his. “This is all I ever wanted. You, me, the quiet…” he trailed, a certain sadness shadowing his expression.

“And children. You always wanted children.”

She tousled her fingers through his hair and kissed him on the cheek, with the wish in her heart that she could give him what he’s always longed for.

“I did. But I’ve come to terms with the fact that that dream had to go with everything else. But I’m happy to find a new dream, as long as you’re by my side.”

“Nothing could tear me away.”

What if Ponce de Leon was right, and there truly exists a fountain of youth somewhere? Would you take a drink? Indeed, everything you’ve heard is true, but only half-true. Such a fountain exists, and the water gives life. But it demands it too. Once a sip is taken, the waters within come calling, awakening a need within those who have had a drink to kill so the water can replenish the stores of life giving power flowing from the fountain. But there is a safeguard–a family who has passed down guardianship of the water from generation to generation. Guardian tells the story of Norman, who struggles to come into his new role and ultimately makes a decision that will alter the course for those across the generations who have taken a drink from the deadly spring.
