Full Moon New Releases (Dec 2015)

It's time for some new releases and one of the warmest Christmas days I've ever seen. So grab up a cold drink (or hot coco if it's winter where you are) and start a new book!

1001 Dark Nights by Rebecca Zanetti

 The Hunter

For almost a century, the Realm’s most deadly assassin, Chalton Reese, has left war and death in the past, turning instead to strategy, reason, and technology. His fingers, still stained with blood, now protect with a keyboard instead of a weapon. Until the vampire king sends him on one more mission; to hunt down a human female with the knowledge to destroy the Realm. A woman with eyes like emeralds, a brain to match his own, and a passion that might destroy them both—if the enemy on their heels doesn’t do so first.

The Hunted

Olivia Roberts has foregone relationships with wimpy metro-sexuals in favor of pursuing a good story, bound and determined to uncover the truth, any truth. When her instincts start humming about missing proprietary information, she has no idea her search for a story will lead her to a ripped, sexy, and dangerous male beyond any human man. Setting aside the unbelievable fact that he’s a vampire and she’s his prey, she discovers that trusting him is the only chance they have to survive the danger stalking them both. 

 Released Dec 8th from Evil Eye Concepts

Eerie by C.M. McCoy Hailey's dreams have always been, well...vivid. As in monsters from her nightmares follow her into her waking life vivid.

When her big sister goes missing, eighteen-year-old Hailey finds the only thing keeping her safe from a murderous 3,000-year-old beast is an equally terrifying creature who has fallen "madly" in love with her. Competing to win her affection, the Dream Creature, Asher, lures her to the one place that offers safety--a ParaScience university in Alaska he calls home. There, she studies the science of the supernatural and must learn to live with a roommate from Hell, survive her ParaScience classes, and hope the only creature who can save her from an evil immortal doesn't decide to kill her himself.

 Released Dec 15th by Omnific Publishing

Something Wicked by Sorcha McInnes Being stood up by a blind date isn't my idea of fun. So when fate throws something wicked my way, for a night of no strings fun, what’s a girl to do?
Saying yes may make all my dreams come true… Or it could cost me everything. Including my life.

Shame I didn't know that before saying yes, isn't it?

** Something Wicked is book 1 in the Naughty Little Witch trilogy. **

** FYI - This novella contains strong language and scenes of a smokin’ hot nature! Suitable for over eighteens only.**

Released Dec. 15th

That's the releases for this month. I'm sure everyone knows there are many more great books that came out this month and if you find a great one let me know!

Peace and Love with a Happy Holidays to you all!

Happy Holidays

I'd like to take a moment to wish everyone a very happy Yule, Winter Solstice, Christmas, Hanukkah or very merry whatever your holiday is this time of year. For me and mine it is Yule and as I sit here with my daughter excitedly running around trying to wait for our family and friends to come over tonight I'm reminded that this is the shortest day and longest night of the year. We celebrate a promise that the darkness will pass and new light will shine as the days begin to grow longer.

 Blessed Holidays and as always Peace and Love!

Review: Beyond the Veil by Pippa DaCosta

I can add one ebook to my 2015 EBook Reading Challenge. I found this one online some time ago and it finally made it to the top of my to be read list. With no further ado here's my take on

Beyond the Veil by Pippa DaCosta

“They say I’m half demon, but I like to think of myself as half human, especially as the demons want me dead.”

Charlie Henderson is living a lie. Her real name is Muse and her attempt at a normal life is about to go up in smoke.

When a half-demon assassin walks into her life, leaving a trail of destruction in his wake, Muse must return to the one man she hoped never to see again and ask for help. The Prince of Greed isn’t known for his charity. The price is high, and the cost could tear her apart.

Trapped between the malevolent intentions of a Prince of Hell and an assassin with ulterior motives, Muse must embrace the lure of chaos at her core; the demon inside her, in order to survive.

When your ex is the Prince of Greed, you'd better be ready to raise hell.

The Review:

I really enjoyed this book, and plan on reading the rest of the series. While I’m not normally one for urban fantasy Muse, with her fiery half demon self, was a real joy to read. There were ups and downs and more than a few who do you trust" moments. 

The main character, Muse was believable and easy to sympathize with. From the explosive reintroduction into the demon world to her longing to just be human, she was a well thought out and developed character.

Our two feature male characters, Akill & Stefan, were for the most part believable. As the story is told from only the POV of Muse I was left wondering what each was thinking and what their motives could have been. This could be a good thing, as long as it is addressed in the next books.

All in all I liked it and would suggest it to anyone who likes a little supernatural in their lives. 

Peace and Love!

My Sexy Saturday: A Sexy Galaxy

This My Sexy Saturday post revolves around A Sexy Galaxy. Each post should be 7 words, 7 sentences or 7 paragraphs long.

I've put up a peek at my work in progress, Rip Tide. In this excerpt Phinn has just pulled our heroin from a dead ship. Enjoy!

Rip Tide peek:

Phinn’s eyes went wide. “You’re a bio android.” He quickly snapped the flex screen back over top of her, and scanned over her core temperature readings again. Her temperature was still too low, and it was showing no signs of warming up. Looking down at the woman, Phinn realized that she had started to shiver. Her arms had come up to curl around her torso. “Can you survive being this cold?” he asked hurriedly.

The woman rolled her eyes to look at him. For a long second she just stared at him, like she was trying to rationalize who he was. For that eternity, Phinn stared back, hoping that he portrayed someone who was just trying to help. Finally she gave a small shake of her head, and whispered, “No. Too cold.”

“Okay,” Phinn declared, pushing the flex screen back into the wall. “Crystal, start a steam bath in the shower chamber. We’ve got to the get the lady warm.” Scooping the shivering woman up into his arms once again, Phinn watched her eyes close again. Spinning around, he made his way to the nearest ramp. The gentle jerking of her body with each step made him wonder if she could hear the heavy stomp of his boots on the metal grate.

Rushing into his living quarters, Phinn sat the woman on his disheveled bunk, and begin to tug her grey shirt off. “The steam has started,” Crystal announced, just as Phinn tugged the shirt of the woman’s head.

Reaching for the black boots, Phinn said, “Make sure it isn’t too hot. It’ll send her further into shock.” After dropping the boots on the floor by the shirt, Phinn worked at unsnapping her pistol belt. Just as he started to tug the pants down he stopped and looked up over her body to her face. “Sorry, lady, but you’ll warm up quicker this way.”

In the end Phinn carried her into the shower chamber still dressed in a fitted undershirt and her panties. He sat her down in the corner of the chamber. He stepped back watching as her head rolled down against the wall. With her knees hugged up to her chest she almost looked like a lost child. Only the curve of her chest and hips told him otherwise.

He quickly stepped out of the chamber, sliding the door closed after him. Phinn pressed his forehead against the clouded clear door, and stared at her hazy outline for a moment. Once the steam had filled the small chamber and Phinn could no longer make out her shape he said, “Run her tags, Crystal. I want to know why she was in those cuffs.”

That's the peek for this week. Don't forget to do a little hoping and visit the other great authors!

Peace and Love!
