Synopsis
Caught between life and death, all Callie wants is to live again.

Homicide detective Callie Saunders knows that death isn’t all pearly gates and angels. After being hit by a bus, she finds that it’s the ancient gods and goddesses of Greek mythology who are in charge of everything.

So when Hades offers her a deal, she accepts. If she wants to be brought back to life, she’ll have to figure out who is trying to kill his son. But if she fails, both her soul and the world will be destroyed.

With the odds mounting against her, it’ll take everything she has within her to wake up from death. But the rules are constantly changing. And someone wants her to stay dead.

(This book was formerly titled Death is but a Dream. The covers and titles have changed for The Elysium Legacies, but the content is still the same.)

Excerpt #1
“You’re blackmailing me,” I sneered at him, fury raging within me at the realization. “You want me to do something in return before you allow me to wake up.”

He raised his hand in a gesture of supplication. “Not blackmail,” he assured. “I’m looking to employ you for a time.”

I recoiled. “Employ me? As what? Muscle? Is this the Underworld’s version of the Mafia?” Now that I thought about it, Hades did remind me of a mob boss. He even looked like some I knew. “I don’t play that, sorry.”

Hades grinned. “I want to make a deal with you, Callista. You find out who is trying to kill my son. Give me a name and a motive. And I’ll restore you to life.”

Synopsis
Hell hath no Fury. Because she’s taking a vacation.

Officer Tessa Forney is a brilliant cop with a fiery temper and a predilection for toeing the line of the law. She’s good at her job too, much to the chagrin of her by-the-book partner Raph. She just always seems to be at the right place at the right time.

What Raph doesn’t know is that Tessa is actually Tisiphone, one of the Furies of ancient Greek mythology. After breaking up with her boyfriend of five-thousand-years because he cheated on her—bastard—Tisiphone is determined to take her anger out on the bad guys during her extended mortal vacation.

But when too many gods and goddesses suddenly decide to take time off, the balance of nature is thrown into disarray. And the consequences are far bigger than Tisiphone could have ever anticipated.

These gods aren’t going on vacation—they’re being kidnapped. And she will have to find them before it’s too late.

New York Times bestselling author Erin Hayes presents Ruin of the Gods, which continues Tisiphone’s story where Callie’s left off in Shades of the Gods and Blood of the Gods..

He’s all I ever wanted but, can I let myself love him?

LUKE
I love her so I let her go will she come back to me?

Something about lethal, predatory, shifter Luke calls out me. He’s my fated mate. It tears me apart, but I must walk away from him to find my blood family. What I hadn’t counted on was uncovering secrets about my past.

Revelations that change my life forever. I now face the ultimate test to become Alpha. If I lose, the future of my pack is at stake. Can I overcome the challenge, while winning back the only man I want to be with?

A standalone paranormal romance sizzling with love, lust, betrayal and shifters. This is book 1 of 2 in the main Many Lives Series. This duet is complete with Feral and Taken.

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt #2
“…Take a good look at me,” I point to myself, “What you see is what you get. Except, I don’t know what it is you’re getting. I need to find out where I come from first.”

“Don’t go, Maya.” His voice is urgent. Then he moves.

So fast that the air around him blurs. The next second, Luke’s body covers mine. In a move so smooth it leaves me breathless, he brings my wrists up. Shackling them above my head. My legs imprisoned between the hard muscles of his thighs. My throat goes dry.

“Don’t weaken the mating bond just forming between us. You sense it too. Don’t you?” 

When I don’t reply, doubt flickers in his eyes. This close, I see the silver specks in his eyes. The breadth of his shoulders drowns out the light.

There’s no mistaking the man he has become. And when those chiseled lips close over mine, I can’t resist. Luke flicks his tongue over my lips, and all other thought goes out of my head.

Soft. Hard. He’s both.

Holding my wrists with one hand, he skims clever fingers down the underside of my arm.

Oh!

Sparks of yearning shoot out over my skin. I shiver. But he’s just getting started.

He cups my breast. Squeezes. A shudder of desire shoots straight to my core. I gasp. For the first time, Luke takes advantage. His tongue dives in. Tangles with mine.

Sneaky.

Heat spurts deep in my belly. Reminding me of the aching hollowness inside.  It’s like nothing I ever experienced. Like everything I’m waiting for.

I strain to pull my hands free; and when he doesn’t let go of my wrists, I growl in frustration. My hips rise off the bed, and I grind my core against his arousal.

More.

I want more. Want to get closer. I nip at his lips, unconsciously imitating the way of the wolves.

Luke’s big body jerks in pleasure, muscles bunching with a fine tension.

Heat from him slams into me. I’m drowning in him. Bathing in that warm scent of dark wood and citrus. Controlled, yet with a wild edge. Like him.

I groan aloud, and the sound is swallowed by his mouth. A last sip at my lips and then he raises his head. A pleased look in his eyes.

“I knew we’d be good together.” His voice is thick with lust and something else. Satisfaction. Like he’s marked me already.

Marked me with his scent.

“Let us be mated first,” Luke says, voice confident, “and then I’ll come with you. I’ll help you find your human family.”

I grip my palms together. My fingers are like blocks of ice.

“Mated…” I can’t quite bring myself to complete the sentence. It feels so…final.

But pack laws are clear about mating rules. As soon as a shifter recognizes a mate, and as long as both partners are eighteen, they are encouraged to accept the mating bond. The emotional and physical connection joining together, strengthening each other.

 I’m attracted to Luke. I trust him more than any packmate. But, mated? How do I even know what I want, when I don’t know who I am?

His muscles stiffen, vibrating with tension. “This need to be together, it’s real, Maya. We belong with each other.”

“I need time, Luke,” I plead. “I’ve only just realized we’re more than friends. I need time to adjust to this.”

His eyes narrow. He’s angry, and I’m subjected to the full intensity of his freezing eyes.

Letting go of my wrists, he pulls away. Sits next to me on the bed. The heat from his body retracts, leaving me cold. Lonely.

It would be so easy to just give in to him. To wait until I’m mated. Then we could set out together on this quest I’m compelled to embark on. I can lean on him.

“No.” I shake my head.  “I’m not ready to be mated. Besides, these are your rules. I am not one of you.”

Synopsis
“On our sixteenth birthdays, our kind is gifted with awesome powers. Except no, not really because this isn’t Narnia, or Hogwarts, or whatever other mythical realm where witches supposedly live. This is Elizabethtown, Illinois, and much to the chagrin of the local chapter of Susie-Homemakers, we live here.”

All witches understand that the universe is a scary sort of powerful on a good day. On a bad day? Well, that’s when The Tower card shows its face during a reading. As summer draws to a close before the beginning of junior year, Rowyn Black is tired of seeing that card stare up at her from the table. Rowyn, Reed, and Rosalyn have made it through just about every dramatic storm their sarcasm could weather during their seventeen year friendship, and it would be nice to have a quiet semester. Rowyn hopes that the only thing The Tower foretells is the frightening sight of the school parking lot come the first day- full of more jacked-up trucks and cut off shorts than a Luke Bryan video. True to its nature, however, the universe doesn’t care much for hopes and wishes, and when the promise of The Tower comes crashing down, they might fall right along with it.

Release Date: June 14, 2017

Synopsis
Born of the rare and powerful Crescent bloodline, Fiona Mandrake is no ordinary witch. Because of her ability to divine the future, Fiona has visions of dark Fey who started a war between the realms that killed her parents. Fiona’s visions foretell the deaths of her coven and the destruction of the human world. But the war is not over.

Through clues her mother left behind, Fiona discovers that the Council responsible for magic is corrupt and working with the dark Fey. She seeks the help of her coven and Sloane Blackwell, a Telepath who can see her visions and change her emotions with a single touch. They share a telepathic bond, one that brings them closer.

Sloane’s unique abilities and his link to the Fey aid Fiona in her quest to end the war between the realms. But magic comes with a price. To save her town from destruction, Fiona and Sloane have to defy the Council, using magic that breaks an ancient law punishable by death. With the Council after them and dark Fey on the loose, Fiona and Sloane have to work together to extinguish the dark Fey before it’s too late.

Cursed is the first book in The Price of Magic urban fantasy series.

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt
I delivered the drinks on my tray, leaving Sloane for last. In the middle of a heat wave, it was odd that he was wearing a long-sleeved shirt. Black cotton fit snug against his chest while the sleeves were rolled up to his elbows. He leaned over his book with a serious expression on his face, as if cramming for a midterm. Even the parade of girls in skimpy shorts couldn’t garner his attention. I wondered if supernatural creatures could feel human things, like hot and cold, happiness and despair.

When I reached Sloane, I organized the cups on my tray to distribute the weight, attempting to steady my nerves, as the glasses clanged together.

“How was the Magic Mocha?”

He looked up with a crooked smile, and I almost forgot to breathe.

“It was magical.”

Even for a Hexenjager, he was charming. When he handed me his plate, our fingertips collided for a split second. His touch sent a tingling sensation throughout my entire body, similar to an electric shock. It rushed over me like breaking waves, pulling me under. No longer in control, I staggered back as the purple-and-gold damask wallpaper swirled together. Then, my legs buckled beneath me.

Moonlight cast its shadow over the dark street. Lampposts and electrical wires fell with each explosion of thunder that pierced my eardrums. I turned my head, taking in the crumbling scenery and what was left of Pine Street. A sea of people darted toward me with crazed looks in their eyes. I stood in the middle of the street, paralyzed by fear.

And that was when I saw them—monsters so terrifying that they could only exist in nightmares.

As they moved forward, giant beams of light struck the asphalt in a methodical fashion, as if thrown from the sky by Thor and his mighty hammer. The pavement cracked in half and began to collapse under my feet. With the ferocity of a hurricane, wind plowed through the trees. A domino effect sent oak slamming into the concrete, wiping out rows of people in its wake. Jolted by the sheer force, I was about to plunge into the abyss when someone grabbed my hand.

“Hang on, Nona,” the boy said.

A boy the same age as me, no older than ten years old, squeezed my tiny bicep. Steely blue eyes peeked out from a chunk of black hair. He led me through the mayhem, calling out for our parents. No one answered.

Droves of inhuman warriors charged forward, riding black horses. Viking helmets covered most of their faces. The parts of their gray skin not protected by armor were branded with tattoos that had a crimson glow shimmering in the darkness. Soulless pits, eyes like lumps of charcoal, glowered at us. They severed the heads from the bodies of those in their way, blood splattering everywhere, rolling off the red cloaks that flapped behind them.

We dashed down Maple Drive, my heart thumping out of my chest, and we hid under a tree. Cocooned by its low-hanging branches, I failed to catch my breath until the boy wrapped his arms around me. My body stopped shaking, and my pulse returned to normal from his touch. I rested my head on his shoulder. The warmth of his energy circulated through my veins, meshing with my own powers, until the electricity pulsating between us consumed me.

Synopsis
When the fate of the world rests upon you…

Allison Delaney wants to spend her senior year healing from the loss of her father, to leave the shadows of his death and her junior year break-down behind. A Labor Day beach party seems like a good place to start…but there’s more danger lurking than anyone could imagine. Death is coming to Earth if the pods of infectious creatures aren’t stopped. But only one human can help…

To live or die is no longer a choice.

Eenoki is a protector of life but must have a sentient host to fight the invasion. A teenage girl would not be the best choice, but out of desperation Eenoki invades Allison’s mind and body, granting her unnatural abilities and strengths – and helping her escape certain death when the first wave of pods land.

As destruction rains down on Earth’s population, Allison realizes to save everyone, she must make the ultimate choice: Reject her human side and bond with Eenoki to become the Earth’s Priestess – or be killed along with the rest of humanity.

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt
Why would they come out here?

I stagger back, shaking as I remember my narrow escape from town, and the aliens’ hissing reaction to sound. I hobble to the pilothouse. “Pete!” I shout, twisting the handle. It refuses to turn. “Shut off the engines.” I beat on the door.

“What the hell this yellin’ about?” he shouts, throwing the door open at me. The other passengers scream. Pete turns toward the shore. “Oh my God.” He runs inside. Revving the motor, he swings us back out into the bay. A loud screech jabs my eardrums as metal grinds on metal, and the engines come to an abrupt stop.

“No. No!” Pete shouts, turning the key. There’s no reaction at all.

Over the wind and waves, an odd clicking sound makes my flesh crawl. We all stand motionless trying to identify it. The clicks grow louder, overlapping until they become shrill. Something strikes the hull with a heavy thud, and everyone jumps. Then another pound on the boat, and another. I can’t decide whether to search for the source of the noise or hide below. But I have to know, so I follow the sound to the rear of the ship. Bobbing on the waves is a human, his face streaked with a black oily residue that’s oozing from his nose and mouth. It resembles the oily residue I saw on the back of Bob’s neck. His eyes are opaque and dead. Nausea rises in my gut.

They didn’t die. I’m not sure what they are now, but they’re no longer human.

I’ve put everyone here in danger with my selfish request to go to shore, attracting their attention. I grow limp and drop my head back, staring up at the sky.

So close, a thin voice says, seemingly right in my ear. It’s the voice that warned me to run. Clenching my jaw, I lash out through my mind at the voice. So close to what, dying?

Discordant memories churn in my head. I close my eyes to still the illusions. A glow illuminates the back of my eyelids and warmth spreads through me.

You must see, Allison. The only way left to explain in time.

Attacks from the Necros grow bolder every day. To keep me hidden, the fiercely irresistible sorcerer at my side will take me to his underworld; a place no sane person would dare to follow. But the whispers stalk me everywhere…hunting me, wanting me. And the more I run, the more I realize that safety may be just another dark illusion.

But when Melaina treats a client for possession by a nightmare creature, she unleashes the murderous wrath of the creature’s master. He could be anywhere, inside anyone: a complete stranger or her dearest friend. Melaina must figure out who this hidden adversary is and what he’s planning – before the nightmares come for her.

Synopsis
They are the first line of defense against the things that go bump in the night.

They are the keepers of a centuries-old legacy of The Church defending the world against the forces of darkness.

They are a bunch of highly armed rednecks, internet video celebrities, soccer moms, and assorted broken nutjobs.

They are the new Templars, and things are about to get weird.

From the pages of Bubba the Monster Hunter comes a new series featuring the Hunters from around the United States hunting down monsters, fighting off supernatural baddies, and making life really, really bad for the things that hunt people.

He’s Mason Dixon, and he’s a bona fide internet celebrity. He has his own video series, a pistol that deserves its own area code, and a high definition video camera, and he’s not afraid to use any of them.

In this introductory urban fantasy novella, we meet Mason, his right hand Emma, his “handler” Noah, his anime-styled hacker friend Himari, and more monsters than you can shake a stick at. Unless it’s a really big stick.

With Mason, it’s always a big stick. This first novella in the series follows Mason through the wilds of Missouri as he hunts down monsters that hunt men, monsters that eat chewing tobacco, and monsters that make pancakes. And there’s moonshine.

And then Bubba the Monster Hunter shows up.

The New Templars novella series is a new series of short novels, similar to BookShots. Mason Dixon – Monster Hunter is the first in the series by popular urban fantasy and steampunk author Eric R. Asher...

Excerpt #2
“Mason, I’d really rather not go to lockup tonight.”

The gowrows squawked agreeably from the back seat.

“Put your harness on,” I said.

“Mason?” Emma asked hesitantly as she pulled the racing harness over her shoulders.

I did the same, awkwardly buckling the crotch piece with one hand. “Drop a couple apples on the floor board. I want the gowrows as low as they can get.”

She pulled two out of the glove box and tossed them into the back. My seat bounced forward when the first gowrow dove for the nearest apple.

“Alright kid, let’s see what you got me.” I pushed the power button on the radio and held it down. Three seconds later, a panel slid out with a series of very much not factory approved features.

“What the hell are we doing?” Emma asked.

I floored the accelerator. We hit 60 pretty fast, at which point I said, “Nitrous,” and hit the big blue button. The engine screamed as the injection hit, and rocketed us up to 110 miles per hour, which is a really stupid thing to do on a country highway.

“Oh shit oh shit oh shit,” Emma said as the force of the acceleration smashed us into our seats. The gowrows squealed in the back, their necks stretched over the seat, and jaws widened like they were screaming. I ground my teeth together. It felt like we were leaving the earth as we crested the small hills, and the tires screamed around gentle turns that were barely turns at all.

In the end, it would only buy us a few seconds against the helicopter, but that might be enough. We soared through another two miles, and I crushed the brakes when I saw the turn off for Swinging Bridges Road in the distance. Smoke and screeches and the squeals of the gowrows filled the early morning air.

I wrenched the wheel and bounced off the highway as fast as I dared in the old truck.

“Gravel!” Emma shouted. “Why are there still gravel roads out here!”

“Wait until you see the bridge.”

Blog Tour – Excerpt + Giveaway – THE UNLIKEABLE DEMON HUNTER (Nava Katz) by Deborah Wilde

THE UNLIKEABLE DEMON HUNTER Blog Tour

Welcome to the blog tour for THE UNLIKEABLE DEMON HUNTER, the first book in the adult urban fantasy romance series, Nava Katz, by Deborah Wilde. See below for information the book, buy links, an exclusive excerpt, and details on her giveaway.

THE UNLIKEABLE DEMON HUNTER (Nava Katz #1) by Deborah Wilde

THE UNLIKEABLE DEMON HUNTER (Nava Katz #1) by Deborah Wilde

About the Book
Title: THE UNLIKEABLE DEMON HUNTER
Series: Neva Katz #1
Author: Deborah Wilde
Publisher: Te Da Media
Release Date: April 18, 2017
Genre: Adult Urban Fantasy Romance/Comedy
Links: GoodreadsAmazon | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU

Synopsis
Bridesmaids meets Buffy with a dash of the seven deadly sins.

The age-old story of what happens when a foul-mouthed, romance impaired heroine with no edit button and a predilection for hot sex is faced with her worst nightmare–a purpose.

Ari Katz is intelligent, driven, and will make an excellent demon hunter once initiated into the Brotherhood of David. However, this book is about his twin Nava: a smart-ass, self-cultivated hot mess, who is thrilled her brother is stuck with all the chosen one crap.

When Nava half-drunkenly interrupts Ari’s induction ceremony, she expects to be chastised. What she doesn’t expect is to take her brother’s place among the–until now–all-male demon hunters. Even worse? Her infuriating leader is former rock star Rohan Mitra.

Too bad Rohan’s exactly what Nava’s always wanted: the perfect bad boy fling with no strings attached, because he may also be the one to bring down her carefully erected emotional shields. That’s as dangerous as all the evil fiends vying for the bragging rights of killing the only female ever chosen for Demon Club.

Odds of survival: eh.

Odds of having a very good time with Rohan before she bites it: much better.

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt #4
“Show me your power.” His hand snaked out and caught my wrist, pressing his palm against mine. Holding me in a barely contained show of strength.

“Death wish, much? I showed you in the backyard.”

“Barely even a tease.” He drawled the words.

I meant to pull away but I got my directions mixed up and pushed back against the warmth of his skin. “I will fire up. I’m warning you.”

Rohan leaned in. “Do it.” His eyes flared and I caught my bottom lip between my teeth.

Then some last iota of common sense–and self-preservation–raised its hand. I jerked away from him. If he was a demon, I should have killed him six times over by now. What the hell was I doing? “You still haven’t convinced me that you’re not a demon,” I said, giving the evil spawn another chance for reasons I didn’t want to examine too closely. “Fame doesn’t preclude that. Nor does having a super cool mom.”

“That doesn’t, but this does.” He held up his pinky finger, showing me the same gold ring as mine, with the same engraved hamsa and blue sapphire iris, which it turns out, was standard issue. And here I’d been hoping for a succession of property-stamping jewelry as I rose through the hunter ranks.

I fell back against my headboard. “You’re part of Demon Club. Fuck. Me.”

Rohan oogled me. “I won’t take that off the table yet.” He propped his chin on his hands on the top of the chair.

I cocked an eyebrow at him. “Did you just put me on a table?”

“More invoked a proverbial table and a conditional ‘yet.’ The ‘yet’ is an important component of this potential event,” he said.

You know what else was an important component? The presumptuous jerk still having attached balls for our proverbial fuck.

“I used to write fanfic about Fugue State Five,” I said in a conversational tone.

Lookie lookie. Return of the amused smirk. “How was I?” he asked.

I shrugged, examining my chipped nail polish. “No clue. I wrote self-insert fanfic about the rest of your band. Zack, your keyboardist was astounding.” I drawled that last word so he’d get the full implication.

“My keyboardist?” Rohan’s smugness was R.I.P. “But he’s gay.”

“I assure you that didn’t matter.” I gave a self-satisfied sigh. “He succumbed to my fifteen-year-old self’s wiles.”

Rohan straightened. “Which of my much older bandmates also succumbed, Lolita?”

“Please. You guys were only three years older.” I twisted a dark curl around my finger. “But pretty much of all of them.” I raked a pointed look over him. “The ones worth writing about.” He didn’t react. “Though succumbing is far more innocent than you’re imagining,” I admitted.

“I doubt you were ever innocent.”

That was highly insulting. Did he think I’d been born this way? Please. I’d worked hard to cultivate this level of sexual awesomeness.

Excerpt #3
I hadn’t been able to scope out his body in detail on our previous two encounters, but now, under proper lighting, I could tell he’d be nicely cut under that sweater that molded to him like a second skin. Underwear model nice and not the low rent, flyer-insert kind either. One of those glorious torsos caught in haunting black and white by Herb Ritts, the stark white of his briefs throwing his generous package into sharp relief.

Then there was his face. If it hadn’t been for the slight bent of his nose, indicating it had been broken, his South Asian beauty would have been too painful and/or depressing to look at. Killer cheekbones, firm chin, gorgeous brown skin and lips that were created to do bad, bad, wonderful things. It was going to be a crime against humanity to kill him.

I leaned in toward the slight breeze drifting in through my open window, refusing to fan myself in front of him.

He sat there under my scrutiny, totally comfortable. A sign of excess confidence and further proof of evil. Though the more I stared at him, the more I got a niggling feeling that I knew him.

“Did we ever…” I made a fist and pumped away in a back and forth motion.

Amusement lit his amber eyes. “I was the lead singer of Fugue State Five.” He smirked, saying the words as if obviously I’d heard of them. Fair enough.

Rohan Mitra had been the broody frontman whose so sensitive lyrics and rough growl singing voice induced mass hysteria at concerts world-wide. It was rumored he’d averted an oil crisis with a personal visit to a Sheik’s daughter. Watching the beautiful bastard now, I believed it.

“Oh my God!” I squealed. “Your mom is Maya Mitra. I love her!”

“My mom.” The smirk vanished.

The words tripped out of my mouth, I was so psyched to be one degree of separation away from this woman. “Punk rock Indian Jewish chick who blew every stereotype out of the water in her rise to hottest music producer in the biz? You get to be related to her?!” I bounced on the bed in sheer excitement, clapping a hand over my protesting boobs.

“And she to me,” he said dryly.

“Whatever.” I studied him. When Rohan had first gotten famous, he’d been an extremely pretty sixteen-year-old, all long limbs, smoldering doe eyes, and his trademark platinum blond hair falling into his face, but from his tightly muscled body to his five o’clock shadow, that boy was long gone. He seemed… harder. Don’t go there, honey. Thankfully his standard issue wear of Vans, black skinny jeans, and vintage-looking weird graphic T-shirts were no longer a part of his repertoire.

Even Leo, his super fan, might have needed time to make the connection between his past and present selves.

I raked an approving glance over his vastly improved fashion sense, enjoying the view from the top of his fitted sweater, along his tailored black dress pants, and down to the tips of his Italian footwear. His leather jacket was tossed on my windowsill. “I didn’t recognize you without the eyeliner and glaring dye job, Rohan.”

He tipped his head. “Yeah. Thrilled that look is immortalized for all time. Now, come on.”

“Come on and what?”

“Show me your power.”

Heaven on Earth. Humans throw those words around, not fully understanding their meaning. They imagine a perfect world, free from pain and suffering. No doubt they probably dream a fairy tale world of unicorns and rainbows. Silly, those humans. Don’t they realize Heaven is already walking on Earth?

They get angels wrong too, telling tales to children to explain away the loss of a loved one. Spreading false hope that loved ones spread wings and become the watchful guardians and protectors of those they leave behind. We angels have never been human, nor will we ever be.

I am a warrior, a true weapon of God. My name is Belleeza. Mostly everyone knows me as The Terrible Beauty, a nickname I did not give myself. Both angels and demons know me to be a ruthless, vindictive, cold-hearted killing machine–A blood lusting, pain giving, death-loving assassin of God. Is it true?–Well not entirely. Although I don’t try spread the word otherwise. I desire to be a loner. People and angels alike tend to steer away from that which they fear and that suits me just fine. The truth is…I’m just good at what I do.

Excerpt #1“
I thought you would have fought harder.” He flinched at that, turning his head away. “I thought, if not for me, for Paul.”

“Callista…” he started, but I couldn’t let him steer this conversation anymore.

“Are you trying to push me away?” I asked. This time, my voice hitched in my throat.

He didn’t answer.

“Look,” I said. I slipped my hand out of his. I couldn’t touch him. Not now. Not when there was an ocean of broken dreams between the two of us. “The only way I’ve been able to get through this—any of this—alone, is because I believe that you’ll be there for me on the other side. And I can’t do that if you…if you…don’t love me anymore.”

Once again, he didn’t answer. He just kept his head turned away from me.

“Say something…Plutus…”

No answer.

“Please?”

Excerpt #2
Foster hovered over my shoulder, returning to his diminutive form for the first time since we arrived at Fort Benton. I pushed another branch to the side as we trailed Zola. She moved through the woods without a sound, whereas I stepped on every twig and tripped over every root.

The trees broke into a shadowed clearing. Water rushed nearby, but I couldn’t see much of anything.

“Modus Illuminadda,” Zola whispered. A light burst into brilliant life over her shoulder, casting her cloaked form into a terrible silhouette.

I gasped at the blood running all around her before my brain processed what it was. “Red clay.”

“Yes.”

“I thought it was blood,” Foster said. “A little warning next time?”

“Why are we here?” I asked.

“It was once called Rebel Creek,” Zola said before falling silent. She turned and looked downstream, the ball of light swaying with the movement of her shoulder. “Enough men die, and a river will run red.”

At seventeen, Hawk is a professional Motocross rider. Hot, badass, smart—with a drug problem—and a death wish. Winning is what he does best. Being in the spotlight is second nature. But after his best friend dies of an overdose during a televised race, Hawk goes down a road that leads to a similar fate—and that’s just the way he wants it—or so he thought.

Fawn Marchat is a CrossWorlder. Her lineage stems from her greatest of grandmothers, the Goddess Hecate. Fawn has many gifts, including the ability to see into the Afterlife and save souls on the Crossroads of death. But between her over-bearing grandfather insisting she follow the path of her elders in Wiccan Craft and assume her birthright, her uptight private Catholic school, and her mom always on her case about the only positive diversion in her life—Fawn has no desire to save anyone but herself.

When the world of the living collides with the world of the dead, Hawk Holland realizes a choice he made while under the influence set him on the fast-track to the Crossroads, a waylay station for lost souls with a one way ticket to Hell—and Fawn is the only one who might be able to save him.

Synopsis
Dying for the love of your life…

Evelyn Bowden thought her story was over. Little did she realize, it had just begun.

The heavens made her a Cupid– a supernatural with the rarest ability. One that allows her to pierce both mortals and immortals with arrows possessing everlasting love. But Evelyn soon discovers Cupids fight a battle in a long fought war.

A duty to protect the purest form of love…

As Evelyn embarks on her first mission, helping a Gargoyle find his true love, she is exposed to the blurred battle lines between light and darkness. While an unknown threat proves it’s willing to do anything to get their hands on Evelyn and her arrows, the heavens send Andel Lambros to help protect her. She finds herself at risk of being distracted by her former mentor, Andel, a stunning Cupid with dimples hard to ignore.

Missing her mark could lead to a supernatural war…

 Having no idea how powerful she is, Evelyn is forced to put everything on the line as she balances the fate of the world on the tip of her arrow. But will love conquer all once she hits her mark, or will all be lost in the end?

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt
“Don’t make this all about you.” Evelyn shoved another spoonful of ice cream in her mouth. “Don’ ge meh wrong, ihithabouoo. Buh—” Swallowing down her bite, Evelyn squinted her eyes shut and placed a hand on her temple. “Brain freeze,” she explained, standing and walking to the kitchen.

Andel’s head tilted to one side as he watched her throw the empty cardboard container away. Roscoe would be showing up for his dating lesson soon, and Evelyn needed to compartmentalize so she didn’t end up taking her frustration out on the Gargoyles.

“I’m sorry, Evelyn. Whatever I’ve done to upset you, please forgive me.”

Her spoon clanged in the sink, “How about I’ll forgive you if you tell me what you did wrong?” Evelyn made her way back to the couch, laying herself across the cushions like she needed therapy.

“I’m fairly sure you are upset I scheduled dinner with Jane and Kendrick during Roscoe’s first date.”

Keeping her composure, Evelyn looked Andel square in the eye and told him, “You’re danish right, I’m upset.”

Her pastry slip was proof enough of her anger, but she’d remained in control of her volume. Andel hadn’t asked Evelyn what she wanted to do during Roscoe and Sydney’s date. And after her surprise visit from Kalan, her nerves were fried. Evelyn wanted to be able to make the call for herself as far as where she’d be tomorrow night. She also wanted to decide for herself if she’d give the fairies her arrows. Maybe she’d keep her run-in with Kalan to herself for now.

“I’ll call Jane now and cancel the dinner.”

“You have her number?” Evelyn sat up and narrowed her eyes. She shook her head, clearing it. Why should Andel having Jane’s number matter? “No. Don’t cancel it. It was hard enough to convince her to come in the first place.”

“Are you sure?”

Knock, knock.

“Yes,” Evelyn grumbled as she went to answer the door. Roscoe’s arrival would at least keep Andel from asking any more questions. She could tell he had picked up that something else was bothering her, but luckily, she had planned Roscoe’s dating lessons for after work.

As Roscoe and Leo entered the apartment, Andel made himself scarce and took a seat in a chair at the edge of the room. Roscoe wore snappy attire, including a bowtie, while Leo had pushed the sleeves of his Henley up to his elbows. The two were complete opposites. Leo had made himself comfortable on the couch, and Roscoe stood at the window waiting for instructions.

“I’m glad you came, Leo. I may need your help tomorrow night.” Evelyn stood next to Roscoe. “You’ll be on awkward-moment patrol.” She patted Roscoe’s shoulder. “Now that I think about it, this will be perfect. You can circle overhead and stay out of sight, but if Roscoe needs help, you can run interference.” Leo’s eyes widened in excitement. “Not literally, but, you have super-hearing, right?”

Leo nodded.

“If you hear or see anything going wrong, you can come get me.”

A grin spread over Leo’s face. “Considering who we’re talking about here,” Leo waved in Roscoe’s direction. “What constitutes wrong?”

“We’ll work on identifying that as we go, so pay attention.” Evelyn faced Roscoe and reached up, tucking a piece of his curly hair behind his ear, but Roscoe flinched.

“Relax.” Evelyn stepped closer. “You’re going to have to get used to being close to Sydney. If she’s like every other girl on the planet, she’ll want you to hold her hand and put your arm around her.”

Evelyn let her arm brush against Roscoe’s. He sucked in air but didn’t budge. He froze. Evelyn couldn’t let Roscoe fail. She had started to like him. She wanted him to find love. She wanted Sydney to find love, too, and if it happened to be with Roscoe, then, bonus. She’d do everything in her power to help them have the chance they deserved.

Roscoe relaxed his fists at his sides. “Okay, I’ll work on that.”

“Good.” Evelyn ran her finger slowly down Roscoe’s arm. “How about we start with the end of the date, then?”

Leo whistled, and in the corner of Evelyn’s vision, she noticed Andel shift in his chair. She wasn’t really going to do anything, but if Roscoe had really loosened up, he wouldn’t curl up into the fetal position when they addressed a good night kiss.

Excerpt #3
The door flung open, and we pushed our way inside. Mom stood at the sink. She dabbed at her face with a tissue and turned slowly toward us. Her puffy and red-rimmed eyes sent a coldness shuffling through me.

“What’s wrong, Mom? Did something happen?”

She nodded and pointed in the direction of Bob’s bed. “Over there.”

My gaze shot to the corner. My hot, fluttery stomach plummeted with an iron heaviness. Dad, hunching beside Bob, rubbed the dog’s head and stroked his chin and ears. Bob lay there lifeless, unmoving. Symphony curled up tight beside him, her head bundled in close to Bob’s. Her body stayed still, and cloudy eyes revealing her heartbreak.

I rushed over, dropping my purse to the floor. “No… please no.”

Dad looked at me with tears in his eyes while I slid to the floor, coming to rest by Bob’s bed. “He’s really sick, Sophia. Sometime throughout the day his stomach acted up again, and his hips gave out. He hasn’t touched a bite all day and can’t walk anymore.”

“Shouldn’t we call Doc Fitzner?” I scrambled up, racing to the phone. “I’ll call him.”

“I’ve already done that. Made an emergency call to him this afternoon. He saw Bob and gave him some medicine, but said there’s nothing we can do.”

I fought to swallow— why was it so stinking hard to swallow? As I clasped my hands under my chin, the hot tears engulfed my eyes, dripping down onto my face. I staggered back over to Dad and Bob. Dad got up and brought an unsure hand up to my face like he was going to wipe away my tears. But, being the awkward dad he was, his arm flopped to his side again and he simply said, “He’s old, Soph.”

“But Dad.” My tear-soaked voice croaked out. “We can’t give up on him.”

My wobbly legs gave out and I sank to the floor, curling up beside Bob. Symphony raised her head to look at me, but plopped it back down again, the fur at the corners of her eyes damp. I gathered him in my arms and buried my face into his fur. He let out a small whimper and licked the side of my face, trying to comfort me. Me, when it was him who was slipping away. In spite of all of Bob’s pain and suffering, the love he had for me was unwavering. It was amazing the way a dog never pulled judgement, was never self-serving, and loved you no matter what the circumstances. Bob loved beyond all reason, even on his darkest days. He was always there to cheer me up.

Dad cleared his throat, his voice hoarse and shaky. “I’m sorry.”

I sat back up on my heels. “What do we do? There’s gotta be something.” Hope swam in my eyes, searching his face for an answer.

Mom let out a small sob, still standing by the sink. Dad’s spine bowed and his shoulders drooped. His voice wheezed out in a flat monotone, “He’s gonna to have to be put down. He’ll never walk again.”

I jerked my head back. “What? You can’t be serious.” My voice quavered, the disbelief and sadness slamming me in the chest. “There has to be something we can do for him. I’m not just gonna throw him away. I can’t live without Bob.”

The tears started to roll again. I couldn’t stop them, my breath coming out in hitching, violent sobs. Mom came to sit by me, collecting me tight in her arms. Aaron leaned against the sink, his arms wrapped underneath his chest.

Mom wiped the tears from my face and tucked a strand of hair behind my ears. “It’s okay. Bob is suffering now, sweetie. He’ll be in a better place.”

A better place. The words resounded in my head like a reverberating thunderclap. Bob would be going to where Matt and Mandy had gone. I’m sure dogs didn’t have unfinished business, so he wouldn’t become a ghost. If what Mandy had told me was true, Bob was going to love where he was going. He would be at peace, and he would be alive in all things. Maybe it wouldn’t be so bad for him. It was us that would lose, not Bob. The sadness would be unbearable. It would hurt like a stake in the heart to see him go, but if I could at least know that he would always be around me, like Tate, maybe the dagger wouldn’t hurt so much.

She is scared and …itchy, but he’s gorgeous and she can’t shake him from her mind. They begin dating and Sophia soon knows he’s the one.

But things turn dark when she learns Tate isn’t the person she thinks he is, and the real reason her friend has brought her to the beach will teach her about life after death.
