Synopsis

Abuse. Torment.

Saint’s undying love for her.

A witch—or four. The world’s most powerful spell. The creation of the unnatural.

Her undying love for Draco.

A war is brewing between the Light, the Dark and the Unknown.

In the midst of it all stands Sarenah. Her memories have returned as she rewinds the past in order to move forward with her future so she can reclaim what, or who, belongs only to her, but will she be able to accept the disturbing secrets that go along with the reminiscence?

excerpt

In the midst of dragging trees, I saw Sarenah sitting on the back porch, her dress hiked up around her thighs from the heat as she was thumbing through a book. She wasn’t even acknowledging the fact that I was there, nor did she care that I could see her bare legs. She was being totally inappropriate and rude at the same time … and I liked it. I felt intrigued to my very core, so much that I had to go over and say something to her.

“Hey,” I mumbled.

Without looking up, she reiterated, “Hey.”

My frustration grew as I clenched my fingers into my palms. “Is that book so interesting that you can’t even talk to me?”

That had gotten her attention. She slammed the book shut and stood up, the dress falling back down around her ankles.

“Are you so interesting that I can’t even read my book?” Her dark eyes were wild and she was glaring at me as if she wanted me to spontaneously combust. “Don’t you have a job to do? Look at this mess.” Her eyes moved to the yard.

“All of these branches everywhere. My uncle will have your hide.”

She was so angry. I couldn’t help myself. I wiped the sweat from my brow with the back of my hand and busted out laughing.

Sarenah’s hands moved to her hips. I thought she was about to hit me.

I threw up hands up in defense. “I’m …” The laughter got the best of me again. “I’m sorry, Sarenah.” I flashed her an apologetic grin. “It’s just, I think this is the first time I’ve ever heard you talk so much and you’re spatting off at me like some crazy person.”

Her gaze had softened then. She bit her bottom lip so she wouldn’t crack a smile herself. “A crazy person, huh?”

I nodded, stopping to really get a good look at Sarenah’s face, her stunning features and the way her dark eyes popped out in a terrific way. This was Rebecca’s sister? I had been missing out. Sarenah’s strange ways evaporated into enticement before me.

I spent the rest of the evening listening to Sarenah talk as I took all of it in. The tree branches were still scattered all over the yard, but I doubted her uncle would be back anytime soon to discover the mess. Everyone knew he lived at the saloon. She talked mostly about her parents. She had a deep ache from the loss inside of her. She was in a great deal of pain that I felt my own heart hurting along with hers, for her. I found myself wrapping my arm around her and her actually letting me get away with it, but I wasn’t in it to try to make a move. I found myself wanting to comfort Sarenah, tell her everything was going to be okay. I wanted her to trust me and continue to confide in me. She leaned her head against my shoulder, being content to be there with me. It felt incredible as if I had been able to tame her so easily. She was feisty but now so serene. I could’ve lived in that moment forever and been completely content to just be lucky enough to be near her, to smell the flower fragrance in her hair as it fell down across my arm. I rubbed her shoulder with my fingertips. She started humming, the sound making the chaos within me only increase. It was in that moment that I had leaned over and my lips found hers. It had been brief but magnificent, and I was wondering if my mind was ever going to be the same.

~*~ Cover Reveal ~*~ The Relics 2 by John Dawson Jackson

 

 

BLURB

Chicago is in ruins. True evil has been unleashed upon the world, but no one seems to believe…
Milo and Killian attempt to free themselves from the madness David Wormwood left behind, but they quickly find themselves searching for the answer to an unknown riddle, something that has to do with a cult and the saying, “In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king.”

The hunter is back from hell with the love of his life Laura, but has he really escaped the clutches of the demonic forces he sabotaged? He’ll find out somewhere in the bayous of Louisiana and inside the pages of a legendary book.

 Abigail Williams has finally found the power she sought, but she doesn’t understand. Why doesn’t she feel good? Why doesn’t she feel immortal? And why does she keep pondering the question: Will the Pendulum swing towards who is right, or who is left?

 John Dawson Jackson returns to the first book of his career with new stories, new characters, and plenty of bloodshed. If you were a fan of The Relics, prepare to be amazed!

 

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Born in a ditch beside a busy highway, John Dawson Jackson never knew his parents. Taken in by wealthy philanthropists Mr. and Mrs. Cornelius Elmo Jackson, he was trained from the age of two in classical piano. A horrible accident left his arm damaged, ending his dream before it began. He was forced to undertake control of his adopted father’s oil business, a company that allowed him to travel the globe and explore the far reaches of civilization. As he studied the ancient carvings of the Mesopotamians, he realized just how much of our history has been covered up by powerful people. These findings have been collected into his new novel The Relics 2. Or maybe that’s a lie…maybe this is true… John Dawson Jackson is an independent author based out of the Knoxville, TN area who has a broad spectrum of interests. Predominantly, his novels integrate the genres of fantasy, history, and horror with intriguing mind bending qualities. All of his works are based in the supernatural and exist within the same universe–a sometimes frightening, but always exhilarating place where Jackson enjoys playing with the interconnectivity of what is real, myth, and rumor. His most recent novel, The Relics 2, charts a path through history, blending both fact and fiction as ancient objects of power shape lives and bring together some of the most interesting and terrifying characters the world has ever seen as they realize their collective destinies.

~*~ New Release & Review ~*~ The Donor By Nikki Rae

The Donor (The Donor #1)

21844566
This is a serial novella that will be told in parts about the length of a short story (20-30 pages)
Blurb:Casey Williams and her family are poor. Her parents work non-stop and so does she, just so they can keep the trailer roof from leaking.They’re getting by fine enough when the headaches start. Then there’s the nosebleeds. And the inevitable medical bills.

Fortunately for Casey, there’s MyTrueMatch.com: an exclusive, quick, and almost easy way to pay it all back before her parents even have to know.

All she has to do is give a man she’s never met whatever he wants from her body.

Inside or out.

***
My Review:
The Donor (Part 1) by Nikki Rae is the first part of a serial novella. It is very short but leaves you wanting more, more, more!Casey Williams is 18 years old and lives in a run down trailer with her parents. Her father had a serious accident so every penny goes to paying his medical bills.
It’s amazing what people will do when they have nothing left to lose and that definitely seems to be the case for Casey when she joins an unusual online match site.
I think that the slow reveal of information gives the reader a lot of time to come up with their own conclusions. But when you get the answers, don’t be surprised if you are wrong ;)
I can’t wait for part two! I’m so curious what will happen with Casey and Jonah!
***

The Donor (The Donor #2)

22662622
This is a serial novella that will be told in parts about the length of a short story (20-30 pages)
Blurb:
When Casey joined MYTrueMatch.com, she never imagined she would meet a man who not only helps her pay the bills, but has been nothing but a gentleman.As the nose bleeds make way for worse symptoms, Casey can’t help the feelings she has for Jonah, despite how he may never return them. And he’s been keeping things from her. Big things. How does he make his money, and who is that girl in the picture?
With the clock ticking, can she find the answers she’s looking for?
***
My Review:
Picking up from where Part one left off, we are faced with the true nature of Casey’s choices…
Nikki deals with the very real and difficult decisions her characters have to make, while allowing us to get to know them better. I love how you really get in close with the characters and you can see where they both come from. At the same time, you also get to understand where they’re both coming from.
It is an intensely emotional ride, even considering the short page length.
The suspense and foreboding that constantly fills Casey and Jonah’s story keeps me on the edge of my seat with not knowing what will come next. I very much look forward to the conclusion of this story and for me part three can’t come fast enough!
This is definitely a story that will stay with me for a long, long while.

The Donor (Part Three)

22909115
This is a serial novella that will be told in parts about the length of a short story (20-30 pages)
Blurb:
Casey may have not known what was in store for her when she met Jonah Black on MyTrueMatch.com, but now that she’s with him, life has become even more unexpected. She’s discovered someone else in the picture and now she cannot figure out how she fits into the puzzle.Convinced that he doesn’t need her, Casey is torn between giving up and doing whatever it takes to help her family. But Jonah, it turns out, needs her more than she knows.Time is something neither of them have.
Can they hold each other together as the clock runs out?

***

WOW

I soooooo wasn’t expecting that. It’s not the job of the author to please the each and every reader but to please the wills and needs of the characters. In the end, this was a tragically beautiful ending to a compelling and heart-wrenchingly story.

Things just aren’t as they seem right? Who is this high class looking hooker that is all over Jonah? And where did all of Casey’s things go? She found a sanctuary before she died isn’t that what we all hope for? I think so. And it was going to be seemingly ripped away from her

Both Casey and Jonah have been dealt tough hands in life. Neither of their futures turning out the way that they might have anticipated. But fate brought them together because they needed each other. They met at a time in their lives when they needed each other most.

It’s like there is 2 story paths running, alternating in sections. We would read part from the present, then flip to an event that happened in the past, then back to the present again. It helped to draw out the final moments of this book. Just when it got to the part where everyones fate was decided, it would flip back in time. I was practically biting my nails off wondering what was happening.

The ending is what left me struggling for ages. I wasn’t sure what I felt. I wanted to think it was the best way for it to end. But, i’m still a little torn…

It was definitely a shocker for me, but I feel a little sad still. I won’t say anymore, as I don’t want to spoil this for anyone who is yet to see, how this amazing novella series finishes. This book is awesome and definitely something completely unique and different. I’m so glad I got to read this!

My Review:

 Firstly I want to thank Nancy once again for kindly providing me with a copy of “Mist Unveiled” to read and review.

This will be the second book of Nancy’s that I would of read and they seem to be getting better and better, ,albeit, it’s a different book in a series.

I first came across her when I was involved in a blog tour with her book “Hunter Betrayed” and after reading that book I was hooked. She has continued to bring me joy in the form of shape shifters, hunters and now sexy sexy mythological creatures that use the earth’s elements to save the human race.

Cat never expected that going on her own to find what a terrible virus was, she would bump into a very hot misty guy that would literally sweep her off her feet.

She has journeyed to find the source of  a virus infecting the living. Unaware that this virus is caused by the Fire Demons and spread through a vampiric bite she has placed herself in the forefront of danger…

Rune a Mist Warden has recently awaken from his slumber along with his brethren to learn that the ancient Fire Demons have escaped from their ice prison and begun wreaking havoc across the human lands.

This story was great, I loved the new idea of Vampires and how Corrigan added Norse legend into the mix. Rune and Cat’s chemistry in the bedroom is off the charts and some of the scenes may just leave you panting for more. There was suspense, mystery and thrills in this book.

I love the way that Nancy combined a little bit of history, legends and passion without it becoming overwhelming.

Mist Unveiled is a passionate love story that keeps you glued to the book, I for one is dying to find out what will happen next. I’m looking forward to Dravens book.

Pandora Wild Child by Sunniva Dee
Publication date: October 28th 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult
Pandora
Synopsis:
I’m free. Fucking free!
I’m in college with my best friends and far, far from home!

With my Scheuermann’s disease as the excuse, my father kept me locked up at home all through high school. Here in Deepsilver, I can finally be me, Pandora, so—

Why the hell should I hold back?

They accept our fake IDs at Smother, our local haunt. I’m the life of the party, everyone loves me—hell, I could get away with murder in this place! Drunk off my ass, I dance on the bar, and—

I’m on top of the world!

I need to get my shit together, though. If I don’t pull off good grades, my father won’t pay my tuition. There’s no way I’m moving back into his “fortress.”

At the bar, I set my eyes on a gorgeous stranger. My plans don’t involve him long term; one night should be enough. But Dominic is more than I bargained for. God, I’m so drawn to this man. My skin hums at his touch because—

He expels the shadows of my past and replaces my pain with desire.

Perfect Dominic. Beautiful, graduating, soon-to-move-on-with-his-life Dominic.

I’m a wild child. A hot mess. Not grownup and focused like him. He’s addictive, and I am weak, but—screw this; I can wean myself off him! With the right antidote—

Addictions can be broken.

Excerpt:

PANDORA

On his bench, I melt.

My shield shatters, and I am open to him.

He always gives me more than the hour I come for, and warm, strong hands slide over my bare skin in exactly the way he’s paid to do.

Still, there’s an electricity in the room when he’s near. My heart accelerates instead of slowing down. And sometimes, when I can’t help the way my insides clench for him, my breath stutters.

My response never goes unnoticed; for an instant, his hands freeze. Then, they resume their beautiful dance over me.

When I am starved for him, I flip on the bench. I shut my eyes because sometimes, sometimes, I am shy. He doesn’t speak, then. Through thin slits under my lashes, I watch him watch me.

Some days, his breath coasts light over my face before he kisses me. “Pandora,” he whispers, “I can’t do this here.”

I don’t answer. He stops massaging me, and his hands caress me instead. Glide over the ridges of my ribs until they brush the sides of my breasts.

I’ve got to get my shit together. My life’s a mess, and I love it, fear it, hate it. I’m driving him crazy. Driving myself crazy. But it is what I allow myself. For these few hours a week are my respite, when his hands quiet my mind.

PWC lifes a mess red

AUTHOR BIO:
Sunniva

I write New Adult fiction with a paranormal twist and don’t shy away from romance and heart-wrenching passion when necessary.

I moved from Norway to the United States in 2001, and the first awesome five years I spent in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles. Then I read “The Book,” aka Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, which spurred my husband and me to move cross country to beautiful Savannah, Georgia.

I’m currently on my seventh year in the Deep South, where I enjoy the heat and the humidity. Besides writing, I spend my time with our “petting zoo” as in an opinionated parrot, a herd of cats that are experts on keyboard shortcuts, and puppies that…uh, bark.

I hold a Master’s degree in languages, with concentrations within literature and linguistics. I taught at college level for a decade before settling in as a graduate adviser at the Savannah College of Art and Design.

Writing is my passion, my joy, and my addiction. When I’m not writing, I read.
Shattering Halos is my debut novel, and its standalone sequel, Stargazer, is due out later this year.
