Full Moon New Releases (Nov 2015)

It's time for the full moon new releases. So if you're looking for some hot reads to give next month or just want something new over the long weekend have a look. 

Claimed, An Outlaws Novel, by Elie Kennedy

 The bestselling author of the Killer Instincts novels “knows how to write scorching sexual tension”*. Now she really sets it on fire in a new series about men and women living on the edge of violence, sex, and life and death.

After a devastating war decimated most of the world, Hudson Lane has only known the oppressive life under her own father’s tyranny. She finally escapes, branding herself an outlaw and hunted by the Enforcers. Her best chance at survival is Connor Mackenzie, an aggressively sensual fugitive who opens her eyes to the wicked possibilities of a world without rules.

As the leader of a band of outlaw fighters, Connor can’t resist the beautiful stranger who asks for his protection. Despite his reservations, he agrees to introduce her to a whole new way of life. But when Connor discovers Hudson’s connection to the enemies of liberty, he wonders how far he can trust the woman who has abandoned all inhibitions to challenge every forbidden desire.

 Autumn Thorns by Yasmine Galenorn

In an all-new series, New York Times bestselling author Yasmine Galenorn invites readers to Whisper Hollow, where spirits walk among the living and the lake never gives up her dead… 

Fifteen years ago, I ran away from Whisper Hollow, Washington, a small town on Crescent Lake in the Olympic Peninsula. But truth is, if you were born here, you can never really leave. I’m Kerris Fellwater, and when I returned, I inherited my grandmother’s house—and her gift. As a spirit shaman, it’s my responsibility to drive the dead back to their graves, because around Whisper Hollow, people—and secrets—don’t always stay buried.

When I was little, I was told my mother ran off. But now it looks like she was murdered. With the help of my mysterious neighbor Bryan, we begin to unravel the mystery of her disappearance, and in doing so, unearth a dark force seeking to bury Whisper Hollow.

Now I must work with the dead, rather than against them, because our enemy will do whatever she can to destroy the town, and she means to start with me.

Viking Warrior Rising by Asa Maria Bradley

Immortal Vikings are among us

Leif Skarsganger and his elite band of immortal warriors have been charged to protect humanity from the evil Norse god Loki.

Under attack from Loki's minions, Leif is shocked to encounter a dark-haired beauty who fights like a warrior herself. Wounded and feverish, the Viking kisses her, inadvertently triggering an ancient Norse bond. But when Naya Brisbane breaks away and disappears before the bond is completed, Leif's warrior spirit goes berserk. If Leif doesn't find her fast, he's going to lose himself to permanent battle fury.

But Naya doesn't want to be found...and he'll do anything to find her. Because they're both running out of time.

That's it for this month. Happy reading!

Peace and Love

Imagine Sexy

It's time for another My Sexy Saturday post. This week our theme is Imagine Sexy and I can only blush at some of the things Malcolm can imagine doing with Meredith.

"I don't give a damn about your Dragon's Eye, but I do care about my spell books and one of them is missing. What do you have to do with that?" Malcolm snarled.

Her breathing was heavy, every breath pressed her beasts against his chest. Any other time he wouldn't risk being this close, but anger and determination was stronger than list alone. He watched her pink tongue slip over her lush bottom lip and waited for his answer. It seemed to take her a second to gather her words, but when she did answer him he was surprised that her voice was unwavering. "I told you it might happen. I warned you, but you didn't give a damn then."

That's this week's snippet from an upcoming short, Just Beyond Daybreak. Don't forget to hop over to the other blogs for more great reads.

Paranormal Love Wednesday

It's Paranormal Love Wednesday and  for my little snippet this week I've chosen a bit of interaction between the two main characters in one of my current works in progress. This piece isn't titled yet, so here's a taste of my day to day writing life., an assistant librarian, wants nothing more than her well earned vacation, but with shadows attacking her will it ever happen? Court, a watcher from the dream realm, just wants to drop Karlee off with the maji and be done, but a little thing like fate keeps getting in the way.

The Snippet:

“Be gone, shadow spawn!” a deep voice boomed behind her, and Karlee felt whatever had her jerk franticly away. Scrambling up the steps, Karlee saw the shinning man who had saved her and ran straight into his arms. A strong arm wrapped around her and tucked her behind the large man.

From behind him she could see the source of the brilliant light. It radiated from a small stone pendant he wore on a chain around his neck. Beyond him Karlee could also see the illuminated darkness left in the library basement. The light allowed her to see the collection of books and the wreathing shadows that had chased her. Misshapen human shadows were wriggling in the light as if it was burning them. Staring at it, Karlee felt herself paralyze. Fear raked over her, violently sending her heard into her throat and blocking the scream she couldn’t seem to conjure. 

The man slammed the door, hiding the horrid sight from her and in one smooth motion took her hand and turned towards the road. “I have to get you out of here,” he said as he started to pull her away from the library and down the sidewalk.

Following along, Karlee nearly stumbled and smashed her toe into the concrete. Ignoring it, she found her voice and asked, “What was that?”

That's it for this week. Hope you enjoyed!

My Sexy Saturday: Something About Sexy


It's another My Sexy Saturday! This weeks theme is Something About Sexy and I've put together seven paragraphs from my WIP, Lost Relic, that I think you'll love. Make sure you stop by the other great blogs to get a peek at some more sexy moments.

Lost Relic

“You’re not half bad at this,” he said, winking over his cards. Lillian could feel herself grinning back at him as she dropped her hand down on the table. “Well, I’ll be. That’s a Royal Flush. Beats my two pair.” Alex tossed his cards down on the table and leaned back in his chair. 

“You’re letting me win, Mr. Martin,” Lillian accused as she gathered up the cards and began to shuffle them back together.

“It’s Alex and I only lose when I’ve got something to gain from it,” he said playfully. 

“Well, I can’t extend your funding, Alex. So I don’t see what you could stand to gain from me.” She shifted her eyes down to look at the cards as her fingers flipped and dropped the cards back together.

“There’s always something to gain from a pretty lady.” The husky tone in his voice caused her to flinch, which sent the cards flying from her hands. For a second she locked eyes with him through the flutter of cards and there was no mistaking the suggestive smirk he wore. She could feel heat spreading across her face and knew the blush was clear to him too. 

Clearing her throat, Lillian started picking the scattered cards up off the table and her lap. Having the man proposition her had crossed her mind, but she’d brushed it aside as a silly idea. She was in her mid-twenties after all and spent more time in books than caring about her appearance. 

Lillian bent from her chair to pick up the cards that had fallen on the floor. When she sat back up Alex was leaning his elbows on the table and smiling at her. “You are a very pretty lady, Lillian, but I don’t think throwing the cards at me is the best way to win a game.” He reached over and plucked the cards from her hands. “How about I shuffle this hand?”

That's the snippet for this week. Peace and Love!

Paranormal Love Wednesday

Our IconI found a new blog hop site and this one is perfect for the paranormal romance lover. It's called Paranormal Love Wednesday and you can read more about the hop over at their blog, but the gist is that in four paragraphs or less the writer gives the read a great peek at their story. Stories can be finished and published or works in progress.

It tickled my fancy to find a hop just for the paranormal lovers. For the hop today I'm laying out three paragraphs from my first novel, Witch Hunt.

Witch Hunt Except:

Like the wild essence of the forest, Aidan was also chasing after the woman. He had to admit that she was a rather swift runner, and only the fact that he ran along the ridge above her allowed him to see where she was heading. She would reach the river soon and then onward to the west. He had to dip down off the ridge to cross the river with the woman and lost sight of her for several long desperately agonizing moments. When he found her scent again, he burst forward, slamming through the underbrush and found his wolf self thrust directly in her path.

Standing in front of her, Aidan felt a need to relieve some of her fear. He felt the wolf withdrawal as he transformed back into his human self. Once he was human again, he had been about to speak when he was suddenly captivated by the sight of her. Kneeling in front of him, he saw a young woman now filled with shock more than fear.

As Aidan had just begun admiring the bright moonglow of her skin, the Wild Hunt had chased her down and slammed into her. Wild energy ricocheted itself throughout her entire body and drove her down to one knee. Aidan watched the woman throw her head back, the look in her wide eyes reminding him of feral wild cats. Aidan saw her chest arch forward, and then without warning, the Hunt tackled him as well. His eyes went wide as his muscles tensed. In that split second before desire overruled thought, Aidan realized his dire mistake, but it was far too late. By placing himself in the Hunt’s path, he too had become a part of its chase. Now the only thing that concerned him was the breathless woman in front of him. Slowly lowering himself to one knee, Aidan leaned toward her. His cheek barely brushed against hers as he inhaled her scent. Sandalwood filled his senses. He felt her heart pounding. Her body tightened, ready to bolt, and Aidan’s response was a low growl from deep in his throat

That's it for today. Hope you enjoyed and don't forget to check out the other great blogs along the hop.

Jupiter Ascending Review

Space travel, hover boots, adventure, royalty and of course love. Really what more could I ask for in a sci-fi adventure love story?? Jupiter Ascending made it to my keep it shelf right beside Stardust. Why? Because it's rare to find a great romantic movie that's just another "chic flic" or even has some action in it. Before I share more of my love for the movie here's a little bit about it.

"Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) was born under signs that predicted future greatness, but her reality as a woman consists of cleaning other people's houses and endless bad breaks. Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered hunter, arrives on Earth to locate her, making Jupiter finally aware of the great destiny that awaits her: Jupiter's genetic signature marks her as the next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos."

This space opera was awesome. The lead woman, Jupiter, rising from the simple life of an illegal immigrant cleaning lady to the life of an heiress was a common idea, but it was wonderfully done. Enter Caine, the sexy hunter who has a sweet set of hover boots, to save the day and you've got a fiery mix of adventure and a budding love.

Jupiter Ascending had more than just love and adventure. It also had some really funny moments. Most of these moments belonged to Jupiter's immigrant family. "You don't treat your cousin like a chicken!" had me rolling with laughter. Another moment between Caine and another hunter reminded me of the man bond that was so easily understandable and logical it could be nothing but funny.

All in all, I loved this movie. It ran a little long and had a few false endings, but those come with the genre. So if you love an adventure love story with a twist check out Jupiter Ascending.
