Synopsis:

Torn between the past she can't remember and a future she isn't ready for, Claudia feels at a loss. With unanswered questions, she is certain there is more to her past than just being a venator. Finding the missing pieces in her life won't be easy because duty calls. When mysterious dark shadows get released, an apocalypse sets in motion.

 

The venators and the alkins must work together once again. Knowing Claudia would be the key to destroying the demons that were released, a familiar stranger appears to protect her. Who is the angel assisting her and can he unravel the mysteries of the past in order to help save the world.

 

 

Teaser:

Michael was so preoccupied with answering Claudia’s questions and trying to push away the pain that he wasn’t prepared for what Claudia did next. She turned, but luckily Michael was faster. Unsure if she caught a glimpse, he held her tightly in his arms so she couldn’t move or turn to see his face. He felt himself melt and burn in her touch.

He lost his breath when her hair brushed against his face. His emotions were running rampant—every emotion that could be felt was happening all at once. Michael didn’t know what to do. Closing his eyes, he took all of her in, trying to hold onto to her as long as he could. He needed to leave, but couldn’t get his body to listen.

Claudia remained still, enjoying his embrace but not knowing why, and was surprised that she felt some kind of mysterious connection to this angel. He was a complete stranger, yet his touch gave her ________. She knew he would have to leave. Her friends were most likely on their way, hoping to find her here since they were split up.

“I have to go. They’re almost here.”

Claudia wanted to ask a question, but she couldn’t open her mouth to speak. She felt lost in his hold. Slowly her right hand found its way to his face.

“You don’t give up, do you?” Michael chuckled lightly.

“No, I don’t,” she said, and ran her hand to feel every inch of his face. His brows were thick, his nose nicely defined, he had high cheekbones, and lips as soft as his feathers.

Michael closed his eyes, quivering, enjoying her caress, bringing back the good memories.

“Next time, I’ll know it’s you when we meet in the dark.”

Michael grinned, happy to hear her words. “Please be safe. I may not be there next time.”

“Oh,” she sighed, disappointed.

With one last tight squeeze, Michael soared into the clear blue sky and disappeared.

Beautiful, Claudia thought as she watched him ascend. “Just like Superman,” she giggled.

Synopsis:

Protecting her from the fallen was his duty.

Falling in love was never part of his plan.

Loving her was forbidden.

Being with her was all that mattered, even if it meant he would be exiled for all eternity.

 

Claudia Emerson's life is about to change when her good friend, who coincidentally shares the same first and last name, dies in a tragic accident. Distraught at the loss of her friend, Claudia's dreams become tumultuous, and through them she mysteriously travels to another world called Crossroads. There, she unexpectedly meets Michael, a nephilim--half angel, half human. Now that she's been there, fallen and demons are after her, suspecting she must be special, and it is up to Michael and the other nephilim to protect her. Her dream becomes a nightmare as more secrets are revealed about who she really is, and the true identities of the people she loves most.


 

 

Teaser:

“After I became your guardian angel, I never wanted to leave your sight. I wanted to protect you and keep you safe. If I were a mere human, I couldn’t do that. I found my purpose.” He paused, setting his eyes deeply into mine. “If I had to die to save you, I would. I would do it in a _________. Life isn’t worth living, unless you have someone worth dying for.”

As the alkins head back to Crossroads, Claudia leads her normal life, but not for long. Having a special soul, she attracts danger.

“Ahhh!” I pressed my hands to his chest. “Why are you such an ass?” I couldn’t believe I’d said it, but it felt so good! Then I thought, How does he bring out the worst in me? I was not an angry person, and I didn’t normally shoot out cuss words. Mom and Gamma had taught me better than that.

Unexpectedly, he gripped my wrists, moving them behind me, and drew me into him. My heart heaved in and out from being a breath away from his lips and from being exhausted from all the energy I was releasing. He set his eyes deeply into mine and exhaled. “Everything was just great until you walked into my life. I know who I am and my purpose in life, but you are making me confused. For the first time, I want more. The worst part of this is that I can’t have you, even if you allowed it.” He paused, searching for words. “I want you to ____ me, ‘cause if I knew that you ever cared about me that way, I would give up everything just to be with you. I don’t know why. And that scares me more than anything I’ve ever known. So there is the answer to your question. Satisfied?”

This was a gift from missy Johnson
5stars!!!!!

I’ve read all Missy Johnson books .
Provoke was announced as coming soon , I contacted missy and beg for this lol .
 This book didn't just blow me away it left me totally bemused and slightly disorientated .
Missy books always knock mt socks of but I wasn't prepared for this the  book and author ........I was very unprepared for the ride Provoke took me on and the limits it took .

two main characters, a Prosecutor called Leeta, and local bad boy, Mace. Mace has a troubled and tragic past and tries to find justice for the horrors that his family have beheld. Leeta is a beautiful Prosecutor who has fallen for Mace having seen behind his reputation and family connections. Together they have a love and a passion which is threatened by the secrets that Mace has kept from Leeta. Mace loves Leeta with such a sweet tenderness that you feel it in your heart. You can only hope that their relationship and love for each other will survive the hurdles that it faces.

We do all us good girl like bad boys , of we think we do mase is my exception he's hard on the outside but soft as in the middle .

Provoke is extremely sexy and hot and Mace and Leeta cause sparks to fly whenever they are together, and even when they are apart! Have some water around to put out the fire .
A glimpse

**We were miles away, only a phone connecting us, and we were on the verge of orgasming together. It was impossible to put into words how intimate this moment was.***

Provoke started out relatively lightheaded as Leeta prepares to introduce Mace to her parents for the first time. The story then introduces a fun character in the form of Tim, a colleague and friend of Leeta’s, and his cat, Marcus.

This story will have you on the edge of your seat
Even wanting to scream at them at times , shout , cry and take a time out and walk away .
I was lost in this story I read in a few hours it was a book I couldn't and wouldn't put down .
Missy Johnson well done
Once agin girl you rucked my world  in more ways than one
Give this book a go you won't be disappointed I promise .
Remember this is 18+ as hot steamy and bits young people shouldn't read .
Complimentary copy received from the author.
stars!!!!!

I’ve not had read of any Missy Johnson books before so when Provoke was announced as a new release I had to jump right in and I am so glad that I did. This book blew me away. I didn’t know what to expect from the book or the author and the synopsis didn’t prepare me for the ride Provoke took me on.

The story is about two main characters, a Prosecutor called Leeta, and local bad boy, Mace. Mace has a troubled and tragic past and tries to find justice for the horrors that his family have beheld. Leeta is a beautiful Prosecutor who has fallen for Mace having seen behind his reputation and family connections. Together they have a love and a passion which is threatened by the secrets that Mace has kept from Leeta. Mace loves Leeta with such a sweet tenderness that you feel it in your heart. You can only hope that their relationship and love for each other will survive the hurdles that it faces.

***“God, you’re so beautiful,” he said, cupping my face with his hand. I closed my eyes, my body weakening at his touch. He 


Sweetness aside, Provoke is also extremely sexy and Mace and Leeta cause sparks to fly whenever they are together,

We're so excited and cannot wait for the release of MY CLARITY, a New Adult contemporary romance by author Mary Ting, which is scheduled to release on May 12, 2014. 

Today we share the cover for MY CLARITY, as well as a teaser and giveaway!




Still reeling from the death of her father, Alexandria hopes to find both independence and reprieve from her grief by heading off to college. However, life throws her a serious curveball when she discovers that her roommate isn’t quite the person she imagined it would be.

Smoking, tattoos, and drag racing for fast cash are Elijah’s only interests. A harsh life has made him apathetic and indifferent, until Alexandria enters his life. When their paths cross, turmoil abounds.

An inevitable encounter, an undeniable attraction, and an unexpected chance at love— will it be enough?


Here is what bloggers are saying about the early ARC.

“Grab your tissue box, it will come in handy as M. Clarke/Mary Ting pulls each tender heart string right from the beginning of this touching love story!”

“At first glance, no one would believe Elijah’s tough guy exterior hides a genuine and giving heart. But, you cannot help whom you fall in love with and when opposites attract, the chemistry is undeniable!” –InD’tale Magazine

M. Clarke/Mary Ting blew me out of the water with this book. I am in awe and in love with this epic tale. Elijah Cooper is now my #1 book boyfriend. ~ Sammie's Book Club, for book lovers

“Through the darkness of our pasts, we are all looking for a little clarity. For Alexandria, Elijah could be just that. My Clarity is a story of love and hope, that through the hardest times we find clarity in each other.” ~ Spare Time Book Blog

"Elijah & Alex sizzle in this wonderful page-turner by M. Clarke. I absolutely could not put it down! This book was 5 stars amazing!" ~ Janie, CrossAngels




RELEASE DATE: May 12th









From Alexandria’s point of view

Never taking his eyes off me, he rested his hand on my shoulder, and then gingerly slid down my arm, giving me pleasurable tingles…EVERYWHERE. Afraid to move the tiniest of my muscles, I felt locked in place. I was enjoying him far too much. I didn’t want it to end. When he finally reached my hand, he pulled it up to his mouth and made the most pleasurable groan I’ve ever heard. Looking exhausted and dazed, he shifted his eyes to the cookie in my hand, and mumbled slowly, “I think I’ll have that cookie now.”

Nothing registered until I saw his lips part, and my fingers disappeared in his mouth. Oh. My. GOD! My pulse skyrocketed, and I whimpered from the warmth of his tongue and the sensation that shot up my arm. My fingers were very wet sliding out of his mouth. I even felt the feather-light graze of his teeth; and I could swear every single muscle in my body became limp.

His jaw worked quickly, chewing. It was the sexiest thing I’d ever seen. He made eating a cookie SO hot. After he swallowed, he turned the other way, picked up my cup of milk, and chugged down whatever was left.

Looking like he couldn’t believe he just drank milk, he placed the cup down. “Good night, Alex. Don’t ever go racing without me,” he ordered, and then he left.

What just happened? Milk and cookies will never be the same for me…EVER.

Review: Glitch by Brenda Pandos

Glitch (Lost in Time series Book 1) by Brenda Pandos 
Genre: YA Paranormal

Synopsis: 

Blue Eyes and his illegal slip of paper are about to shatter Abby's perfect world.
When a mysterious guy from the forbidden zone sneaks a note to a beautiful young girl from Brighton, she must decide if she should turn him in or follow what the note says.
Eighteen-year-old Abby has no trouble following Brighton's rules. For one, she's OCD about checking her Date of Death clock latched to her wrist, making sure her decisions never shorten her lifetime, and two, she enjoys the peace Brighton has to offer. But when her best friend returns from her Advice Meeting--a glimpse into the future--shell shocked and won't tell Abby what's happened, she's worried what awaits her when she experiences her glimpse in a few days. The stranger with blue eyes warned her not to go, but does Abby dare enter the forbidden zone to get answers? Or is she doomed to live the life her glimpse is about to show her?

First, let me just say that time travel is kind of a big deal for me. It's probably my most favorite sci-fi subject. As such, I tend to be extremely critical of any inconsistencies, nitpicking every little thing. I can't even begin to tell you how many heated debates I've gotten into on this subject.

So, with that in mind, I want to share my review of Glitch by Brenda Pandos.

Admittedly, I was a teeny bit skeptical once I found out that time travel was part of the story, but I've absolutely loved every other word Brenda has ever published, so I made a deal with myself to reserve all judgment until I was done with the book. I was NOT disappointed!! This book was awesome!!!

In typical Brenda Pandos fashion, Glitch is an extremely well written story. Character development is great, detailed, and the characters were so relatable! The story was so ridiculously fantastic that IF there were any major inconsistencies, I didn't even notice them! Anything that might have caused any major inconsistencies in the time line, she didn't just ignore and hope noone would notice. She had an explanation for everything and I can't lie, I was really impressed. The only thing that drove me crazy was the cliffhanger at the end!!!

It's so hard to get into too much detail without giving away any spoilers so I'll just say this: 5 hearts! I loved this book and I can't wait for the next book in this series!!

Synopsis:

 

When life crashes down around us, how hard are we willing to fight for the one thing we can’t live without, each other?

 

Life is full of moments.

Big moments.

Little moments.

And none of them are inconsequential.

Every single moment prepares you for that one instance that defines your life. You must overcome all your fears, confront the demons that chase you, and cleanse the poison that clings to your soul or you risk the chance of losing everything.

 

Mine started the minute Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet. She made me feel. Made me whole when all I thought I could ever be was incomplete. Became the lifeline I never knew I needed. Hell yes, she’s worth the fight…but how do you fight for someone you know you don’t deserve?

 

Love is full of ups and downs.

Heart stopping highs.

Soul shattering lows.

And none of them are insignificant.

Love is a racecourse of unexpected twists and turns that must be negotiated. You have to break down walls, learn to trust, and heal from your past in order to win. But sometimes it’s the expected that’s the hardest to hold on to.

 

Colton has healed and completed me, stolen my heart, and made me realize our love’s not predictable nor perfect—it’s bent. And bent’s okay. But when outside factors put our relationship to the test, what lengths will I have to go to prove to him that he’s worth the fight?

 

Whoever said love is patient and love is kind, never met the two of us.  We know our love is worth it—have acknowledged that we were meant to be—but when our pasts crash into our future, will the repercussions make us stronger or break us apart?

Driven Synopsis


 

Rylee Thomas is used to being in control. But she’s about to meet the one man that just might make her enjoy losing it…

 

I am the exception to the rule.

 

In a world full of willing women, I’m a challenge to the roguish and achingly handsome Colton Donavan. A man used to getting exactly what he wants in all aspects of life. He’s the reckless bad boy constantly skating that razor thin edge toward out of control, on and off of the track.

 

Colton crashes into my life like a tornado: sapping my control, testing my vulnerabilities beyond their limits, and unintentionally penetrating the protective wall around my healing heart. Tearing apart the world I rebuilt so carefully with structure, predictability, and discipline.

 

I can’t give him what he wants and he can’t give me what I need. But after a glimpse beneath his refined exterior into the dark secrets of his damaged soul, can I bring myself to walk away?

 

Our sexual chemistry is undeniable. Our individual need for complete control is irrefutable. But when our worlds collide, is the chemistry enough to bring us together or will our untold secrets and battle of wills force us apart?

Fueled Synopsis


 

Book #2 of the Driven Trilogy

 

What happens when the one person you never expected suddenly happens to be the one you’ll fight the hardest to keep?

 

Colton stole my heart. He wasn't supposed to, and I sure as hell didn't want him to, but he crashed into my life, ignited feelings within me that I thought had died forever, and fueled a passion that I never knew could exist.

 

Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet and into my life. Now I don't think I'll ever be the same. She's seen glimpses of the darkness within me, and yet she's still here. Still fighting for me. She is without a doubt the saint, and I am most definitely the sinner.

 

How is it the one thing neither of us wanted—neither of us anticipated that fateful night—has us fighting so hard to keep?

 

He steals my breath, stops my heart, and brings me back to life again all in a split second of time. But how can I love a man who won't let me in? Who continually pushes me away to prevent me from seeing the damaged secrets in his past? My heart has fallen, but patience and forgiveness can only go so far.

 

How can I desire a woman who unnerves me, defies me, and forces me to see that in the deep, black abyss of my soul there's someone worthy of her love? A place and person I swore I'd never be again. Her selfless heart and sexy body deserve so much more than I'll ever be capable of giving her. I know I can't be what she needs, so why can't I just let her go?

 

We are driven by need and fueled with desire, but is that enough for us to crash into love?

 


 

“You can go now too.”

His gruff voice startles me. His unexpected words throw me. My temper simmers. I look over at him and can’t do anything other than shake my head in sputtering disbelief because his eyes are still closed. Everything over the past couple of days hits me like a kaleidoscope of memories. The distance and avoidance. This is about more than being irritated from being confined during his recovery. “Is there something you need to get off your chest?”

A lone seagull squawks overhead as I wait for the answer, trying to prepare for whatever he’s going to say to me. He’s gone from crying without explanation to telling me to leave—not a good sign at all.

“I don’t need your goddamn pity. Don’t you have a house full of little boys that need you to help fulfill that inherent trait of yours to hover and smother?”

He could’ve called me every horrible name in the book and it wouldn’t sting as much as those words he just slapped me with. I’m dumbfounded, mouth opening and closing as I stare at him, face angled to the sun, eyes still closed. “Excuse me?” It’s no match for what he’s just said, but it’s all I’ve got.

“You heard me.” He lifts his chin up almost in dismissal but still keeps his eyes closed. “You know where the door is, sweetheart.”

Author Bio:

 

K. Bromberg is that reserved woman sitting in the corner that has you all fooled about the wild child inside of her--the one she lets out every time her fingertips touch the computer keyboard. She’s a wife, mom, child rustler, toy pick-er-upper, chauffer, resident web-slinger, LaLaloopsy watching, American Girl doll dressing multi-tasker of all things domestic and otherwise. She likes her diet cokes with rum, her music loud, and her pantry stocked with a cache of chocolate.

 

K. lives in Southern California with her husband and three children. When she needs a break from the daily chaos of her life, you can most likely find her on the treadmill or with Kindle in hand, devouring the pages of a good, saucy book.

 

Fueled is K. Bromberg’s second published novel and is the highly anticipated second book of “The Driven Trilogy.” Driven was her well-received debut novel and Book #1 of the series.
