Excerpt

**from Spark X – the New Adult Version**

Prologue

Asher

I’ve been in love with Ember Rose Edwards for a while, but she doesn’t know it. I can’t tell her, either, not when the battle’s ending solely rests on her making a choice and sacrificing someone she loves. If I were to divulge how I feel, I’d be interfering even more, and I’ve already been banished for entering her life. It’s not something I regret. I made the choice the day I first saw her. I wanted her in my life, regardless of the consequences.

That day feels like such a long time ago, yet it hasn’t been more than a few months. So much has happened since then. So much has changed, for the better and the worse.

God, we were both so different back then.

As I sit beside her bed and watch Ember sleep, my thoughts drift back to the day when I first laid eyes on her…

I was sent to that place to collect a soul, but what I didn’t expect was that I’d end up at a house crammed with a ton of humans, dry humping the shit out of each other. I had instantly wanted to get the hell out.

A rock song plays on the stereo and floats across the room full of people dancing. Beer cans and cups cover the floors, and the air is drenched with the stench of cigarettes. It has been a long week. Michael, the leader of the Angels, has sent me on a total of five missions to collect souls, which is a large amount compared to most Angels. Then again, Michael has never been a fan of me, considering I have Reaper blood.

My sole purpose tonight is to wait until the person dies then collect their soul before the Reapers get ahold of it. I’ve already spotted three Anamotti, and I’m guessing they’re here for the same reason I am—waiting for the person to pass away.

I sense a fight in the air, thick and heavy, like tar.

I lean against the wall near the corner, watching the crowd, drinking a beer, eager for the night to be over. As my gaze travels over each human, I wonder which one of them is the unlucky person who will die tonight. Humans are so fragile, so…

The air suddenly thins and charges with electricity, full of life and death mixed together. My attention drifts to the side of me, my senses sharpening as I zero in on a girl. Ember Rose Edwards. Her name comes to me like a breath of fresh air.

I’ve never met her before, but know her name for solely one reason—she carries Angel blood, just like she carries Reaper blood.

Sadly, I haven’t crossed paths with a Grim Angel in a while, because Reapers are making them a dying breed. Usually, I pass by without so much as a second glance, despite my connection to them. This time, though, I find myself staring. One, two, three songs go by, and I still can’t seem to take my eyes off her.

She’s gorgeous, to say the least. Dark hair flows down her back, skin as pale as snow, full lips as red as a rose, and big, hazel eyes. But her beauty isn’t the only thing that captures my attention. It’s the pain hidden in her eyes, masked beneath her strength.

Her attention is fixed on the throng of dancing people, and she looks as uninterested as I felt until I laid eyes on her. She keeps her distance, too, probably because of her Grim Angel ability to see death with a touch.

I know I should stay away. Let her be. I’ll be breaking a lot of rules if I interfere with her life, but I find myself moving in her direction, drawn to her.

When I reach her, I whisper the first thing that comes to mind. “God, it’s like mating season in here.”

She shudders from the feel of my breath and stumbles forward, stomping on the toe of my boot. As she regains her balance, her gaze whips in my direction and slowly travels from my boots to my shirt then finally rests on my eyes. She swallows hard as our gazes lock, and I realize she is afraid of something.

“Sorry, I didn’t mean to frighten you,” I apologize quickly.

She shivers again then clears her throat. “Sorry about your shoes.” She starts to back away nervously. “Crowded rooms just make me a little uneasy.”

I chuckle, crunching the empty cup in my hand and chucking it into a nearby trashcan. “I know what you mean. All this”—I gesture at the people dry humping one another—“is an excuse for the opposite sex to rub up on one another.”

“That’s a pretty good observation.” She almost smiles, and I feel like I won the lottery or something.

Pressing my lips together, I inch closer and lean over her shoulder. She stiffens from my nearness, probably worried I’ll touch her and force her to see my death. I won’t put her through that, though, so I make sure to leave a sliver of space between us.

“Take those two for instance.” I point at a girl with pink hair dancing with a gangly guy. He moves with a huge lack of coordination, while the girl is graceful, looking bored as hell. “I think they’ve got their own mating ritual going on. Although, I think it might be a one-sided mating ritual.”

She tracks where I’m looking. “I think you’re right.” She turns to me, and for a moment, the pain in her eyes vanishes and pure lust flashes, instead. “It looks like she’s bored.”

My heart thuds deafeningly inside my chest from the look of desire in her eyes directed at me. “Is she a friend of yours?”

She nods, biting her lip contemplatively. “Her name’s Raven.”

I cock my pierced brow. “Like the poem?”

“You know Edgar Allan Poe?” He face lights up with excitement.

Jackpot. The girl has it bad for the dead poet, who I vaguely remember meeting two centuries ago.

“A little bit.” I stare at her beauty, trying to figure out what to do next. I know what my body wants to do with her, and my mind seems to be veering toward the same thing. Regardless, I’d be in a shitload of trouble for touching her. Fuck, even this conversation is going to get me into trouble.

“What’s your name?” I ask, trying to act as normal as I can.

“Ember.” She scoots forward, holding her breath as a girl stumbles by, having a drunken conversation with the air.

“Ember … I like it.” I dare a step or two closer and breathe in the faint scent of her—roses with a hint of lilies. “ ‘And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor,’ ” I quote the one line I can remember from Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven.”

“I thought you said you knew a little?” she asks me, impressed.

I shrug, stuffing my hands into my pockets. “What can I say? I’m fascinated with the idea … love, death, and the insanity it brings.”

She grows uncomfortable with my mention of death, and her eyes anxiously sweep the crowd as if she’s seeking an escape. I can’t have her leave just yet. I need to keep her here a little longer. I don’t want her to go.

Release Day!! Hazards of Sleeping With A Friend

THoSWaF RDL Banner

 

I am so amazingly ecstatic about this Release Day Launch for Alyssa Rose Ivy’s THE HAZARDS OF SLEEPING WITH A FRIEND!! THE HAZARDS OF SLEEPING WITH A FRIEND is the fifth book in her New Adult Romance, Hazards Series. Grab the latest book in this steaming hot series today!

 

The Hazards of Sleeping With A Friend - Cover

Amazon ** iBooks ** Google Play ** Kobo

 

THE HAZARDS OF SLEEPING WITH A FRIEND is just $2.99 for a limited time!

About THE HAZARDS OF SLEEPING WITH A FRIEND:

Warning: Sleeping with a friend might change your life forever.

Sleeping with Kyle was never in the plans. Pretending to be his girlfriend was one thing, but letting our relationship become anything but platonic was another. The problem with mixing friendship with sex is that inevitably feelings get involved, and when that happens there’s no turning back.

When Kyle’s life fell apart around him, I needed to help, but doing that meant opening myself up to the most terrifying thing in the world—falling in love.

 

Excerpt:

He stopped right out front. “This is going to sound absolutely crazy, but I need you to agree anyway.”

“Okay.” I watched him with interest. Kyle wasn’t the type to call any of his ideas crazy. He was more likely to proclaim them as wonderful.

“If you’re ever going to seriously consider trying out the random sex thing, call me first.”

My mouth fell open. “Uh, you didn’t just say that.”

“I’m just saying I’d rather my best host not die or get badly hurt after she decides to hook up with a random guy.”

“Oh yeah? Worried about your radio station?”

“And a friend.”

“Haven’t you heard about the hazards of sleeping with a friend?” My heart was beating a mile a minute. Had Kyle offered to have sex with me? He must have had more to drink than I thought.

“They’re no worse than hooking up with a random psychopath. Or a drummer,” he mumbled.

“Wait. What?”

“Nothing.” He looked down.

“Nuh uh, I heard you. You think I was talking about having sex with Len?” Kyle made no secret of his distaste of the guy.

“He does flirt with you every chance he gets, even when he’s across the country.”

“And that means I want to sleep with him?” Admittedly I’d had a mega crush on Len Denton, drummer of Chance of a Lifetime, but if my friendship with him had taught me anything, it was that I definitely didn’t want to sleep with him. I’d have chosen Kyle for that role ten times over.

Kyle shrugged. “Just saying, I think I’d be a better choice.”

“So what am I supposed to be agreeing to then? I’ll call you if I get horny next time instead of hooking up with someone random?”

“It sounds so much worse when you say it that way.”

“Because it is that bad.” I still didn’t know if he was actually serious. The offer was so unlike Kyle I doubted it could be.

“Fine. I was just offering.” He shoved his hands in his pockets.

“You were offering your sexual services. Got it.” I smiled. Joke or not, I had to give him a hard time about it.

“That sounds even worse.”

I put a hand on my hip. “Shall we say goodnight before it gets any worse?”

“Forget I said anything.”

“I will. After I tell all my friends.” I grinned. Teasing Kyle came so naturally.

SET IN STONE Synopsis:

A standalone companion novel to the International Bestseller, CRAZY GOOD.

There is something all too vague about second chances. What happens when your utterly perfect first chance never really ends? What if it’s stolen?

Bull-nosed attorney Morganna Sterns knows what she wants. Self assured, powerful, and independent, she finds herself struggling to find balance between honoring what has been stolen, and deciding if her second chance is going to end just as tragically.

Steven Warner is a Navy SEAL with nothing to lose. His overt humor and charm paired with his lethal skill set make him a perfect catch–for the right type of woman. His world is littered with relationships, but only one stands the test of time. Competing with a ghost is hard. Especially when that ghost is a teammate: his brother at arms.

It’s not, “it is what it is.” It’s what you make it. What you, and only you decide it should be. Navy SEALs never make the same mistake twice.

Will Morganna?

O.M.FREAKING-G!

daemon

If you recognize this cover model then I’m sure you know that he graces the covers of Jennifer L Armentrout’s Lux Series!

I spent my spring break re-reading the Lux Series and gobbling it up like a crazy woman who had never before read the words. In case you were curious, the answer is YES, the entire series is just as good the fifth time around! So this news could not have been more perfectly timed as I only finished my reread a week before it was announced that OBLIVION will be a Daemon novel.

That’s right you beautiful people. Come DECEMBER 2015, the wonderful-amazing Daemon Black is back with a novel of his own that will act as a companion novel to the original Lux Series. We don’t have a lot of information just yet, but we have a December release, so ladies, mark your calendars.

Just had to, had to share my excitement over this most joyous news! Seriously, I graduate with my bachelors degree in December, but I think I might be a hair more excited for Oblivion!

Excerpt“And don’t ever forget that, my friend.” I remove the dipstick, glance at the oil level, then put the stick back in. Wiping my hand off with a rag, I step back from the car. “It looks like it might—” My back bumps into Ayden.
He hardly ever instigates contact first, expect on rare, amazing, wonder-filled occasions, so I allow myself to enjoy the earth-shattering moment and breathe in the feel of his body heat.
I smile stupidly when he doesn’t move away. “Whatcha doing?”
“Nothing.” His voice is uneven, revealing his nerves. “I was just…” He releases a breath then places his hands on my hips. Surprisingly, his fingers are steady. “I just wanted to touch you.” He rests his forehead against the back of my head and inhales deeply. “And to make sure you’re okay.”
“Okay about what?” My eyelids drift shut as I lean into his touch.
His simple touches are better than light.
They awaken my body and bring it to life.
More. More. More, my body is craving.
The addiction is potent, consuming, aching.
Leaves my body wanting, pleading, shaking.
Sometimes I feel like I’m withering, fading.
Fading. Fading. Fading.
Into him.
“About … about what happened the other day … when I sleepwalked.” His fingers grasp onto me, and his chest crashes against my back as his shallow breaths turn ragged. “I know I probably freaked you out. I’ve been meaning to ask you about it, but I didn’t want to upset you, so I decide to wait until stuff cooled off.”
“I’m not upset about what happened.” And not surprised one little bit that my theory about him was right. I turn around and loop my arms around him. “I’m just worried about you and how you’re handling it.”
“I’m fine,” he swears, searching my eyes for my true feelings. He forgets, though, that I’m like an open book.

**Release Day** Witches by Ednah Walters

Wahoo! I am so excited to announce the release of and have the opportunity to review Witches (Book Four in the Runes Series) by Ednah Walters today!!! 

10649504_10152314753448144_5189673952669074357_n

  Synopsis1

Witches continues the story of RAINE and TORIN. This story’s timeline overlaps with Cora’s in SOULS The Norns think they’ve won, but it’s hard to control a teenager, let alone a powerful one… Raine Cooper’s life should be perfect. She’s an Immortal Seeress, most likely to be elected Prom Queen, and envied by the girls at Kayville High for dating the dreamy quarterback, Torin St. James. Instead, she’s haunted by the smug facial expressions the Norns’ wore during their last meeting. As a Norn-In-Training, Raine crossed the line long ago when she sided with the Valkyries and Mortal Witches. When the Norns return with demands of their own, Raine feels trapped. She must repair the battle grounds and wipe out the memories of every Mortal witness. Torin tries to convince her that the Norns are manipulating her, but she refuses to listen. At least until the Norns’ demands focus on someone she loves. When Raine refuses to cooperate with them, their punishment is swift and gut-wrenching, turning her pain into fury. Raine plots revenge on a massive scale and makes deals with unsavory allies. Her goal? Total destruction of the entire Norn race. Raine’s only hope of salvation is Torin, but how much will he sacrifice to save her?

Review1

Witches is full of Valkyries and Grimnirs, Goddesses and Evil Norn Hags, boys that make your heart skip a beat and a cat with a serious (and hilarious) attitude… Oh and one heck of a powerful witch. Seriously, move over Sabrina, there’s a new teenage witch in town.

As stated in the synopsis, this story overlaps Cora’s story in the second Grimnir’s novel, Souls. So it may help to refresh your memory and reread Souls before starting Witches.

Witches jumps right back into Raine’s story like a breath of fresh air. It’s only been a few days since the epic battle that ended Seeress and Raine is getting in tune with her witchy powers – which, I might add, are pretty freaking badass.

One of the things I love most about Raine is her willingness to stand up to some of the most powerful beings in existence, The Norns. Not only does she stand up against them for herself, she fights for everyone’s right to chose their own destiny. Through this novel, it’s hard to miss the ways that Raine has matured and grown from the girl she started out as in Runes to the woman she’s becoming in Witches. Our main character, who is one of my favorite of all time, has a better sense of right and wrong than most teenagers and even a lot of adults. But more than just that, Raine’s sassiness knows no bounds. From her conversations with a cat to her inner monologue to using her powers to help those in need our heroine is full of sass.

“The Norns were’t going to like me interfering in their business, but then again, when have I ever done anything that made those hags happy?”

Torin is once again the book boyfriend you stay up all night just to get a taste of. He’s overprotective and a little overbearing, but he’s still one of the best guys in books. With a sexy smirk, arrogant attitude, and limitless love for Raine, Torin is utterly irresistible. I will never, ever complain about a book that has a Torin in it. It’s nice to see him loosening up a little – not a lot – but a little and becoming (albeit begrudgingly) more accepting of Raine’s abilities.

Ednah Walters has an elegant and thrilling way of stringing together words that makes it impossible to put Witches down for even a moment. She manages to make readers laugh, cry, and anxiously read through each page, never becoming monotonous or having a slow moment. We get to delve even deeper into the world of Norse Mythology that Ednah has so seamlessly woven into modern reality. In short, Witches may be the best yet in the Rune Series and you definitely do not want to make the mistake of missing Raine’s witchy adventures.
