Cover Reveal - Blood Rule - Heather Hindlebrand & Giveaway

Blood Rule

Book 4 in the Dirty Blood series

Coming 8/6/13!


That’s how many hybrids survived the Hunter attack in the woods after I revived them with an injection of my blood. That’s how many followed me home to Frederick Falls. And that’s how many were now mentally linked to me through a blood bond.


Two days. Three valium. Fourteen hours of sleep.

That’s what it took to realize I wasn’t losing my mind as a result of the noise in my own head.



That’s how many days have passed since I almost killed Alex. That’s how many days I’ve sat by his bedside, waiting for him to wake up. To ease the guilt, to understand his betrayal, to remember the exact shade of brown in his eyes.



That’s my chances of skating by with Gordon Steppe and the Hunter Council. They want me for questioning. I’m afraid what’ll happen if I give them answers.

Witchwood Estate - Cursed - Patti Roberts Book Review

Author: Patti Roberts
Published: 23 June 2013
Genre: YA Paranormal
Book Description
Brought back from the clutches of death by a power she does not understand, Alexandria is focused on getting her life back to normal, whatever that means. With new friends, Andrew, Kat and River by her side, Alexandria lets herself believe that her future is looking promising.

Things take a turn, however, when a handsome stranger arrives in Ferntree Falls, and Alexandria begins to wonder if his presence is a blessing or a CURSE.
My review
As always with each instalment of The Witch wood Estate series, Patti Always leaves us wanting more. The books are short in length as in any TV series, but filled with action, evil, adventure, mystery, and an even a little sparkly flare of romance brewing.

In this instalment we meet new characters, which I have to say I eagerly await for more of. Find out the cliff-hanger from book two and breathe a sigh of Relief.

I love the world of the Paranormal and Patti gives us a smorgasbord in this instalment. I love the new characters she had added into this series, and is curious as to which direction she will take us.

The only thing I can complain about is that we are always left wanting more. But like any TV series we are left eagerly awaiting the next instalment, making conclusions and thoughts of our own as to which way the story will take us. I have to say the new hotties that Patti has added into *Cursed* , have me curious and maybe even a little starry eyed. Im a sucker for a man with fur and fangs ;) lol.

Witch wood estate - is a truly unique series filled with an abundant tale of witches, potions and magic chants and also mysteries within. Patti brings this fantastic and imaginative story to life at every page.

The added extras at the end of each series is a wonderful addition to anyone interested in learning more about the witchy ways, crystals, herbs and much more.

Resisting Fate by Heather Van Fleet Book Blitz & Giveaway

Title: Resisting Fate

Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Romance

Publisher: Sunshine Press

Release Date: June 28th


Seventeen-year-old Emmy O’Connell is the epitome of a hot mess.

Her boyfriend’s been shipped out of town to some boarding school four states away. Her step-douche is constantly drunk and badgering her. And then there’s her good-ole-mom… The lady is nothing more than a miserable shell of a woman. She’s turned off all of her feelings and her ability to be a good mother as well, leaving poor Emmy and her four year old brother Jamie to suffer. Life couldn’t get much worse, right?

Enter the elusive, cocky, and oh-so-broody Jack Hartman…

The jerk cousin of her boyfriend becomes Emmy’s worst nightmare…times ten. He’s cruel. He’s insensitive. But he also has this strange little ability over her – he makes her weak in the knees with thea single touch. No matter how miserable or amazing Jack makes her feel, Emmy can’t seem to deny him, especially when he takes on the role of her protector –her pseudo-knight in a black leather coat.

A knight who also happens to ride in on his black Harley, instead of a white horse…

And to make a bad situation worse…

Werewolves and teens shouldn’t mix! But what can Emmy do when she finds herself thrown head first into the center of it all. Can she handle the supernatural mess her life rapidly becomes or will she fight against the inevitable fate her heart desires?



“That smart mouth doesn’t sit well with me,” he licked his lips. His eyes never wavered from mine.

 I nibbled on my lower lip, just as a small smile graced the edges of my mouth. Oh yeah, my bravado was about ready to kick some ass. I think I kind of liked being a smart ass.

“What are you going to do about it Jack?” I inhaled a breath, taking in his warm, delicious scent. My throat went even drier than before. I practically stared holes into his face as I studied every tiny mark, every single scar on his perfectly flawed skin. He was gorgeous, with a little scar here, a little white patch there. His hotness could have left me breathless for days if I kept up my perusal any longer.

And then I blinked, Christ. I knew exactly what had to be done. I had to kiss him. I had to get this itch scratched and then I had to move on. His eyes darkened, his breath was warm and heavy over my face, and he licked his lips. I blinked. Holy-balls… He wanted to kiss me too.

That ever-present electricity running between us wouldn’t stop. If anything, it only increased our pull. I moved in; his lips touching my lips was all I wanted. I needed to feel again, feel it all with a boy who hated me, but apparently wanted to kiss me as badly.

 Dryness on dryness soon changed to warmth on warmth, and when I pressed my mouth fully to his, his hands left my neck, and went to my waist. His fingernails dug into my sides and the son of a bitch pushed me away from him.

So there I was, my head tilted to the side, ready, willing, and able to do whatever the hell this moment led us too, and all he could do was chuckle. Yes. Chuckle. He was the biggest rat bastard.



Author Bio:

Heather Van Fleet currently resides in northern Illinois, with her three little ladies, Kelsey, Emma, and Isabella, and her fabulous hubby (and high school sweetheart) Chris, with whom she’s been blissfully married to now for ten years. She’s a stay at home mom by day, and an avid and completely obsessive writer and reader by night.

Heather always had a soft spot in her heart for books, and she’s been creating her own little stories since she was a seven year old. But she never really had the confidence or the time to actually sit down and really do something about it, until her youngest daughter was born just two years ago.

Resisting Fate, book one in her Predetermined series, is her young adult, paranormal baby! It’s packed full of wolves…witches…and one sassy little red-headed teenage girl! She had an absolute blast writing it, and can’t wait to share it with the world!

Dare You To - Katie McGarry Book Review

Release Date: 7th June, 2013

Publisher: Mira Ink

Pages: 352pgs

The Story

Ryan lowers his lips to my ear. "Dance with me, Beth."

"No." I whisper the reply. I hate him and I hate myself for wanting him to touch me again....

"I dare you..."

If anyone knew the truth about Beth Risk's home life, they'd send her mother to jail and seventeen-year-old Beth who knows where. So she protects her mom at all costs. Until the day her uncle swoops in and forces Beth to choose between her mom's freedom and her own happiness. That's how Beth finds herself living with an aunt who doesn't want her and going to a school that doesn't understand her. At all. Except for the one guy who shouldn't get her, but does . . .

Ryan Stone is the town golden boy, a popular baseball star jock-with secrets he can't tell anyone. Not even the friends he shares everything with, including the constant dares to do crazy things. The craziest? Asking out the Skater girl who couldn't be less interested in him.

But what begins as a dare becomes an intense attraction neither Ryan nor Beth expected. Suddenly, the boy with the flawless image risks his dreams-and his life-for the girl he loves, and the girl who won't let anyone get too close is daring herself to want it all . . .
My Review

As much as I loved Katie McGarry's debut novel Pushing The Limits, I have to say that Dare You To is now my favourite.

 Katie McGarry has certainly written a wonderful sequel - This Ya contemporary shows us many aspects of being a teen. Katie certainly grasps the teenage voice well within this story.

We meet Beth and Ryan in this instalment, they meet upon a Dare and life changes for them both.


Katie has put forth all the emotions well within this story, we see sexual tension, volcanic chemistry that is just off the charts,  we have strong characters with flaws but also a  well-developed storyline with tons of depth and detail.

The book is written in dual perspectives from both characters. I enjoyed seeing this,  it gave us depth into the characters and the storyline, and we see so many emotional sides you feel as though you are within the story itself.

I immensely enjoyed both the characters Beth and Ryan.

Beth was rough and unsure of how love is supposed to go but upon Meeting Ryan she finds out more than she ever bargained for and the story shows her growth with Ryan her feelings and herself along the way.

Ryan – well ** swoon ** what can I say – he is Beth’s ideal equal.  He is certainly not at all what he seems, but certainly is caring in his own ways. But amongst the read I found Ryan did everything I could have wanted and certainly didn’t always expect.

Dare To you, gives us all the emotions one could feel in a story. It’s a roller coaster ride filled with heartache, love, friendship and new beginnings.

A wonderful Ya contemporary romance that will have your heart aching but also fluttering. Loved this instalment and can’t wait for the next already!
I  would definitely recommend this book to all , since I found this one was even better than the first book in the series .. Ryan I loved ..... <3  Grab your copy today
Big thank you To Harlequin for suppyling me with this book for review for my honest opinion.

Sucker Literary’s Blog Tour -

Sucker Literary – Volume 2 Blurb

When Alex’s bandmates invite a girl to sing lead, a battle of the sexes becomes a battle over something unexpected. . . A girl tells her friend about hooking up with longtime crush Fred, but his kisses are not what makes that night in his car memorable. . . A therapy session with Doug might just make Jason go insane again. . . Wallflower Aubrey hooks up with Gordon after the cast party, which would be fine if he weren’t the most forbidden fruit of them all…Savannah certainly doesn’t sound like a convict’s name, so maybe hanging out with her isn’t all that dangerous. Miki is committed to getting over Dex, yet she can’t get him off her answering machine—or her doorstep. In between puffs of cigarettes and attempts to smear lipstick on her face, Allie’s grandmother dishes out advice that maybe Allie should take. . . And finally, what’s a girl to do with Satan as both her boss and father? Nine short stories pose the questions we obsess over whether we’re growing up or all grown up: Who should I love? Am I doing the right thing? Is there ever an end to heartbreak? In its second volume, SUCKER continues to showcase the very best emerging talent in young adult literature and give (some of) the answers to Life’s Big Questions along the way.


Please include ALL the following links (in either form):

Sucker will reopen the doors for Volume 3 submissions. One day ONLY, August 1, 2013. Find the guidelines HERE.

Immortals Cover Reveal - Ednah Walters

Okay everyone, I know a lot of you have been waiting for this since the release of Runes on May 20, 2013.  When I found out that Ednah was doing a second book in this great series, I jumped at the chance to do the cover reveal of Immortals which is book 2 in this great series.  First thoughts I had were awesome more Torin St.  James.  And my second though was, So when does Immortals come out.

Product description of Immortals:

Nothing can stop Raine Cooper when she wants something…

Raine finally knows that her gorgeous neighbor, Torin St. James, is a legend straight out of Norse mythology but that doesn’t stop her from falling hard for him. Torin is crazy about Raine too, breaking the one rule he lives by: Never fall for a mortal. The problem is he no longer remembers her or that she saved him by making a deal with Norns—Norse destiny deities—the same Norns who have now erased his memories of their past together to punish her.

So Raine comes up with a plan...

She will make Torin forget his one rule a second time and fall in love with her all over again. But before Raine can put her plan into action, the Norns return. This time, they demand she protects Eirik Seville, her best friend since childhood, from an evil so dark even the Norns are scared.

But you know what they say about well-laid plans…

Caught between protecting Eirik and convincing the stubborn, cocky Torin St. James that the two of them are meant to be together, Raine's life slowly unravels. Friendships are tested. Enemies become allies. Desperate, Raine makes choices that could not only tear her and Torin further apart, but lead to the destruction of everything and everyone she loves.

Release Date:
August 5th 2013 by Firetrail Publishing

Expected Publication Date: May 1, 2013

Interview with Katie

Who designed the covers?

My publisher designs my covers and I think that they are absolutely amazing! From the colors to the design to the models they choose—I’m in complete and utter awe

How many books do you intend to have in this series?


Right now I’m finishing up revisions for Isaiah’s story, CRASH INTO YOU, which is scheduled to be released in December 2013. I have a few other characters from the PUSHING THE LIMITS universe who are pulling at me to write them, but for now I’m focusing on Isaiah.

What was the hardest part of writing your books?


My characters are often raw and are going through very emotional times in their lives. In order for my characters to have the intensity I’d like them to portray on the page, I have to place myself in their shoes. It’s often a dark place to be and that can be very emotionally draining.

About the author.

KATIE MCGARRY was a teenager during the age of grunge and boy bands and remembers those years as the best and worst of her life. She is a lover of music, happy endings, and reality television, and is a secret University of Kentucky basketball fan.

Katie would love to hear from her readers. Contact her via her website,, follow her on Twitter @KatieMcGarry, or become a fan on Facebook and Goodreads.
