Book Cover
THE SIREN'S SON
Helen Scott
Series: The Siren Legacy, Book 1
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publication Date: April 25, 2017
When an immortal warrior meets a Scottish lass bewildered by the magic she has inherited, he yearns to protect her. But will his attentions doom them both to Zeus' anger? Or worse, make his lovely mortal the target of the goddess Circe's growing evil?
Alec Cantio is the son of a siren. He and his three brothers hide their true identities while protecting humans from the negligence of the gods. All Alec wants when he visits his favorite magic shop, Speak O’ the Devil, are provisions for his task. But he finds instead a mortal woman, innocent and brave, who tempts him with all he is forbidden to have.
Eilidh MacLeod just wants to close her granddad's shop, and mourn him in peace. But when she's thrust into a world filled with magic, mythical creatures, and gods, she must find a way to control her powers, or be destroyed by a vengeful Circe. But how can she concentrate around the magnetic Alec? Her powerful attraction to him could endanger them all.
Highly recommend! Romance novels aren't normally my niche, but this book was fantastic! It had a romantic undertone but the plot was enthralling and magical. I couldn't put the book down and finished it in just a few days. ... Truly a gem and pleasure to read! I can't wait for volume 2...
- Jessica Baldridge, Goodreads Reviewer
Helen takes on paranormal romance from a fresh angle, combining mythologies rather than painting herself into a single modal corner. She has opened a world with endless possibilities, that I for one cannot wait to see where it goes next.
- Justine Hucke, Amazon Reviewer

Release Blitz & Excerpt: Shopping for a CEO's Wife by Julia Kent


Out Now—Shopping for A CEO’s Wife (Book 12 in the Shopping series) by Julia Kent (@jkentauthor)


Title: Shopping for a CEO's Wife
Author: Julia Kent
Release date: April 25, 2017
Genre: Romantic Comedy, Contemporary Romance

Add to Goodreads 

Description:

Snowbound. Sounds so romantic, with visions of cuddling before a roaring fire, hot chocolate spiked with brandy, and a secret elopement.

Wait. What?

My fiancé's father won't stop trying to turn our pending wedding into a three-ring media circus so he can get free publicity for his family's Fortune 500 company. My mother has decided she's done with All Things Wedding and asks her teacup Chihuahua for mother-of-the-bride advice.

They've all gone certifiably mad.

Then the stress from the wedding puts my mother in the hospital, I scream at my future father-in-law in front of a camera crew and the video goes viral, and the romantic wedding that started with Andrew's grand Pride and Prejudice proposal looks less like Jane Austen and more like Dostoyevsky.

So what do you do when you're a fixer and you can't fix something?

You give up on it.

Not on Andrew, silly.

The wedding.

Shopping for a CEO's Wife is the 12th book in Julia Kent's New York Times bestselling Shopping series. As Shannon and Declan enjoy their newlywed bliss, Andrew's father wants to exploit Amanda and Andrew's nuptials, much to Amanda's chagrin. Can she learn to stand up to her future father-in-law and fight for what's right? But the real question is: will Spritzy the teacup Chihuahua end up being a flower girl?

“You have a remarkable capacity for imagining the strangest worst-case scenarios, Amanda.”

“I have to. I’m in love with you.”

“Hey!”

“Did I or did I not walk miles in an 1800s Regency-era costume after you lost your car keys AND a three-carat diamond ring in Walden Pond?”
 
“Yes, but -- ”

“Did you or did you not have to rescue me, half clothed, from a pool at your brother’s wedding?”

“I am sensing a trend.”

“And did you, or did you not, wake up with me in a Vegas hotel room, thinking for a few hours that somehow we’d both married more than one man?”

Now he just sighs.

Ah.

Victory.


New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Julia Kent writes romantic comedy with an edge. From billionaires to BBWs to new adult rock stars, Julia finds a sensual, goofy joy in every contemporary romance she writes. Unlike Shannon from Shopping for a Billionaire, she did not meet her husband after dropping her phone in a men's room toilet (and he isn't a billionaire). She lives in New England with her husband and three sons in a household where the toilet seat is never, ever, down

Review: The Vampire's Mail Order Bride (Nocturne Falls #1) by Kristen Painter

Title: The Vampire's Mail Order Bride
Series: Nocturne Falls #1
Author: Kristen Painter
Pages: 370

Purchase: Amazon

Book Description:

Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town where Halloween is celebrated 365 days a year. 

The tourists think it's all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better. Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs and all.

After seeing her maybe-mobster boss murder a guy, Delaney James assumes a new identity and pretends to be a mail order bride. What she doesn't know is her groom to be is a 400-year-old vampire.

Hugh Ellingham has only agreed to the set up to make his overbearing grandmother happy. His past means love is no longer an option. Except he never counted on Delaney and falling in love for real.
Too bad both of them are keeping some mighty big secrets...




I liked The Vampire's Mail Order Bride. It is my first book by author Kristen Painter and I plan on picking up book two.

I loved the setting! A town that is Halloween everyday?! Who wouldn't love that. Throw in that the town is inhabited by real vampires, werewolves, witches, and more-- woza!

Definitely different, and kept me interested up until the last few chapters. I did have a hard time finishing the book after it got to about, the last four or so chapters, I think. It felt a little bit drawn out. Not only that but by this point I was getting a wee bit tired of our sexy main vampires guilt and sadness thing. I thought he was over it but then every time you think he is he comes back doubting what he just said beforehand. It got frustrating towards the end when I felt it was time for that to have already been solved and out of the equation.

I did enjoy the book though, and I will be getting book two. Just because the ending of this one slowed me down doesn't me book two will be the same and I love all the hunky paranormal's, and this wonderful town. It's so fun!

3 Moons!

Guest Post & Giveaway by Amanda Jones, Author of Dark Angel





Good Vs. Evil and rooting for the underdog…

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always wondered what makes the bad guy bad.  I’m also interested in cause and effect, how our actions ripple out and change the world we live in.  So, when I decided to write Dark Angel I wanted to fall in love with an anti-hero.  Angels are generally portrayed as perfect beacons of goodness and hope – so why not tell a story about the ultimate angel of darkness – Lucifer Morningstar.  

When you look at why Luc fell his reasoning is pretty relatable (in my version at any rate!) – jealousy, hubris, and immaturity…I think we’ve all been there at some point…minus the world changing apocalyptic effects!  Given the right motivation and circumstance, can he grab what’s left of the light inside him and make the right choice? 

I love flawed characters – where you can really see two sides of the same coin.  Lucifer was an easy choice for me – his dual nature is even present in his name – Morningstar.  Here we have the darkest fallen angel paired with the brightest of stars in the sky (well, brightest planet I guess J).  Darkness and light existing in the same space.  At the end of the day I wanted to find out if it was possible to hate the things Luc had done without hating the man.

Throughout the course of this series we will definitely see some traditionally pure angels, and some avenging angels, but they all have a story to tell.  Love is a powerful force that has the ability to both motivate and destroy.  This little crew of fallen angels have gone through the ringer (Bataryal’s story is up next in Broken Angel) and everyone will have to face their past and come to terms with who and what they’re becoming.


In everyone’s life change is inevitable, and there are always opportunities to make different choices.  In the end is there really pure goodness or pure evil, or are we all just operating in shades of gray? 

Read on below for a short excerpt and a giveaway!

 With this fallen angel it never felt so good to be bad!


Book Description:

Katia may be a celebrated musician, but she'd always felt a little like an outsider looking in. Who knew that being abducted by a handsome stranger would set her on a crash course with her destiny...

Luc has spent an eternity keeping everyone and everything at a distance as an unstoppable darkness consumes his soul. Will his beautiful captive be his salvation, or will they both be consumed by the ultimate evil...

New Concepts Publishing          Amazon




As Katia stepped into the room, Luc moved to shut the door with a click behind her.  Room thirteen — it figured they’d be in room thirteen.  Not only were they now stuck in the crappiest motel known to man, Amir had dropped them in room thirteen — his idea of a sick joke.  Luc hoped it wasn’t some kind of omen or predictor of the rest of their mission.  As Katia walked around inspecting the room, Luc walked over and tossed the room key with the gaudy orange plastic tag onto the dresser.  The Red Roof Inn was most certainly not five-star accommodations.  The décor was nineteen-seventies chic, faded and scratched with the passage of time.  Water stains decorated the ceiling like a large-scale Rorschach test.  As he looked around, Luc made a mental note to slap Amir later for dropping them here.

Reviews


As a voracious reader, I find it astounding that I can still come across something original. Yes, I’m familiar with the characters names and previously read interpretations of the good and evil they have done. Dark Angel gives us a new take on how good become evil and evil doesn’t have to be forever.  Dark Angel is the first book in this series and I’m definitely a fan  ~ Stacey is Sassy

It’s been a while since I’ve read a fallen angels novel, and I now remember why I loved them so much!  This is my first book from this author and I’ve added her to my favorite author’s list.  Love can change everything. Even the darkest soul can shine again when they find a reason…I can’t wait to read the rest of their stories. ~ The Secret World of Book Lovers Carla Maggiolo

Kaithlin Shepherd is the author of The Callaway Series, The Brass Series and The Saints and Sinners series.
Author Pic
Born and raised in Canada by a working single mom and a loving grandmother, Kaithlin surrounded herself with novels by Danielle Steele and Nora Roberts provided by her grandmother. Kaithlin quickly fell in love with reading. It was in high school, thanks to an English teacher, that Kaithlin wrote her first story (although if you ask for it, she will deny ever writing it) about a popular boy band. Inspired by constructive criticism, Kaithlin spent some time developing her love affair with words through more reading than someone would think possible.
After pursuing a higher education, Kaithlin, sat down with a pen and paper and decided to give writing a shot. With no false hope in mind, her first novel, Make Me Whole, slowly came to life. Putting fear and doubt aside, Kaithlin has published five books to date, and has eleven more set to be published in the next two years.
