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.

Mary Ting resides in Southern California with her husband and two children. She enjoys oil painting and making jewelry. Writing her first novel, Crossroads Saga, happened by chance. It was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother, and inspired by a dream she once had as a young girl. When she started reading new adult novels, she fell in love with the genre. It was the reason she had to write one-Something Great. Why the pen name, M Clarke? She tours with Magic Johnson Foundation to promote literacy and her children’s chapter book-No Bullies Allowed.

Release Blitz ~ Securing Kiera's Love by PF Fiala


Title: Securing Kiera’s Love
Author: PJ Fiala
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Rolling Thunder Publishing
Hosted by: Lady Amber's PR

Blurb:
Can love be renewed after a thirty-year separation?

David Haggerty longed for many years for his lost love, Kiera. Now in his fifties he believes it will never happen. He’s been married and divorced and now finds solace in his security business.

Kiera loved David with all her heart, but life took over. She was the only one who could save her father’s life. But, to do that, she had to leave David. Battered and broken, Kiera sees David again after more than thirty years. Will he forgive her? Can he?



Writing has been a desire my whole life.  Once I found the courage to write, life changed for me in the most profound way. Bringing stories to readers that I'd enjoy reading and creating characters that are flawed, but lovable is such a joy.

When not writing, I'm with my family doing something fun.  My husband, Gene, and I are bikers and enjoy riding to new locations, meeting new people and generally enjoying this fabulous country we live in.

I come from a family of veterans. My grandfather, father, brother, two sons, and one daughter-in-law are all veterans. Needless to say, I am proud to be an American and proud of the service my amazing family has given.

Book Tour & Giveaway ~ Don't Let Him Go - I Want Morrison: Book One by Kay Harris


Don't
Let Him Go
I
Want Morrison Book 1
by
Kay Harris
Genre:
Contemporary Romance

When
a strict and careful corporate lawyer collides with a laid-back,
risk-taking activist they find an unexpected, unexplainable, and
possibly, an unemployment-risking kind of love. 





Candace
Gleason is making all of her dreams come true. She passed the bar,
landed a great job, and is making a killer salary as a corporate
attorney. Everything seems to be working out perfectly. That is until
she’s assigned to keep the boss’s petulant son out of
trouble. 

Jack
Morrison is the rebellious black sheep of a mighty real estate
family. He runs a non-profit whose mission is to save poor people
from evil corporations, like the one his own family owns. He is
obnoxious, horrible, ridiculously charming, and insanely hot. He is
the bane of Candace’s very existence. 

Candace
has more to worry about than just keeping Jack from chaining himself
to bulldozers, though. She has to keep him from locking up her heart,
too.

This
contemporary romance has a touch of sweet, a little-bit sexy, and a
whole lot of fun. It does not have a cliffhanger and contains a
perfect HEA!

Don’t
Let Him Go’ is part of the three-book series ‘I Want Morrison.’
Each book in the series deals with a different Morrison sibling and
each can be read as a stand-alone.





I
am a college professor, former park ranger, and anthropologist.
People observation is in my blood. I write contemporary romance
novels that emphasize character development and dialogue.
The situations my characters find themselves in might not be
everyday, but they 
could happen.

I
have always loved romance novels of all kinds, and I've been writing
love stories since I was kid. It wasn't until I was approaching a
very significant birthday that that I decided to write down some of
those stories in full length novels.

The Love
on Tour series 
is
a coming together of my love of romance and my love of rock n' roll.
In particular I am a fan of classic rock (which might be obvious if
you read my books). The titles of the books in the series are
actually the song titles from one particular artist. If you can guess
which singer/songwriter it is you get a gold star!

I grew
up in Michigan, have since lived all over the west, including
Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Arizona, California, and Nevada. I love to
hike, am obsessed with museums, and take my 6'5 husband on
'adventures' all over the West.

Book Tour & Giveaway ~ Night Lord Series by Garon Whited


Sunset
Nightlord Series Book 1
by Garon Whited
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal  

Eric
didn't ask to be a vampire. In fact, he didn't even believe in them.
Then he meets a beautiful woman, wakes up with a hangover, and bites
his tongue with his own fangs.



Which
pretty much settles the question.






Now
he's trying to hold down his day job while learning the rules of the
Undead -- the most important being that bloodthirsty urges and
predatory instincts are a real bitch. 






Upside;
Eric has the beautiful Sasha to teach him the ropes, including the
magic he'll need to survive.






Downside;
they're being hunted by members of the Church of Light, who are
determined to rid the world of vampires.






When
Sasha is killed, and Eric is thrust into an alternate world in his
quest to avenge her death. There he becomes a Nightlord, fights a
dragon with the help of his magical steed, Bronze, and upchucks a
sword named Firebrand. 






But
things get really interesting when Eric finally finds Tobias, head of
the Church of Light. Soon Eric finds himself at the center of an epic
battle at the literal edge of the world in a fight to keep a terrible
darkness at bay.






"When
you fall off the Edge of the World into hordes of demonic Things from
the Outer Darkness, you really start to wonder about your life
choices."


--Eric,
part-time undead, expectant father, and short-term astronaut.





Shadows
Nightlord Series
Book 2

I’ve
awakened in a stone box about the size of a large coffin… I’m
filthy, everything aches, and, by the various so-called gods, I smell
awful.


I’ve
woken up in worse places.


Hmm.
What does that say about my life choices?”
Eric,
amateur magician, part-time vampire, and accidental king.





It's
not easy, being King. Especially when you've got an allergy to
sunrise and sunset, a fire-goddess for a mother-in-law, demonic
adversaries, random assassins, and a basement full of insecurities to
cope with.


Add
to that his daughter, the fire-priestess/princess, a couple of
lightly-deranged professional magicians, a whole city full of
wizards, and enough squabbling princes to resemble a kindergarten
argument.
It's
enough to make a man want to just go home.
Luckily
for Eric, he has the world's fastest pet rock, a smart-mouthed sword,
and a horse that not only understands him, but likes him anyway.





An
awful lot of young ladies seem to be up all night, wandering around
the halls on the off-chance they’ll bump into the King when he’s
in the mood for a snack. Since when did I become sexy? And why didn’t
anybody warn me it was going to be work?”


Eric,
elder geek and occasional idiot.




Orb
Nightlord Series
Book 3

We
all have inner demons. We fight them all the time. Some of us achieve
inner peace by coming to terms with them.


But
how do you come to terms with inner demons that tear free and become
outer demons?


Eric
has been a vampire for nearly a century, and his demons are more than
metaphors. While they controlled him, he was the Demon King. Now he
has to avoid the monsters in his own mind, as well as angry nobles,
fanatical religions, assassins, magi, other vampires, criminal
organizations, and the neighborhood gossip.
He
wants two things: To find Tort, and to have someplace to call
home.
It
may be too much to ask.





Knightfall
Nightlord Series
Book 4

It's
not easy, being King. You can't always rule a kingdom and still do
what needs to be done.


Eric--or
King Halar, also known as the Demon King--has more than enough
problems without the crown.


But
quitting the job of King isn't easy, either--unless you want to be
beheaded. Most people regard that as an unsatisfactory way to quit.
Even vampire lords tend to be cautious about guillotines. A King who
loses his head has a real problem... or none at all.





It's
time to sort some of these problems out, settle a few more, and kill
the rest.


But
at what cost?





"Knightfall"
is the fourth book of the "Nightlord" series. It picks up
exactly where the previous book, "Orb," ends, and carries
on with an adventure of epic proportions!






Garon
Whited was supposedly born in either 1969 or 1970; the original birth
certificate is suspiciously unavailable and other records do not
agree. 


After
spending some years in college playing with computers, he finally
joined a radical group of jellyfish herding nomads. Having fought
zombie dolphins, quasi-corporeal spirits, and brain-sucking mole
rats, he is uniquely qualified to write fantastic fiction. His
subsequent attempts at professional salsa repairman and ley line
salesman met with similar success. He claims to live in Texarkana, on
Earth, but people have been known to disagree.

Promo Blitz ~ Raise the Curtain by Kirby Hall




YA Romance
Date Published:  June 2017

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Seventeen-year-old Alexa Cross is desperate to get to Broadway, but when she receives a failing math grade, hopes of a scholarship disappear. Now she’ll need her father’s help to achieve her dream. The only problem is he doesn’t consider her choice of careers to be sensible and after the pain her family has suffered, Alexa can’t go against his wishes. Trapped between a family she loves and her love of the stage, Alexa will have to find another way to achieve her dream or settle for what her father wants.
West Howell does his best to keep his head down and go unnoticed. It’s easier to be cut off than to try to explain to people why he’s so screwed up. After all, he can’t afford to get into any more trouble. When he’s recruited to tutor the hot, prissy girl from math, he never expects to fall in love with her. Or that she might be the one person who can relate to him.
Together, they may find a way to heal each other and get what they both desperately need, as long as Alexa’s father doesn’t decide that the one thing worse than his daughter’s love of the stage is her love for West.

Excerpt

Mr. Guin gave her a moment to adjust to the news and then continued. “Now, I know you’re capable of doing the work. You’re a smart girl, but you’re going to have to buckle down and put in some serious hours or you won’t have enough time to pull your overall grade up before the end of the semester.” He stood and crossed his arms over his chest. “I’m afraid you need more help than I have time to give, and that’s why I’ve spoken with the person in the class with the highest average. He’s going to be tutoring you at my request.”
He. Please don’t let it be West Howell. Please don’t let it be West Howell. Of course, it wouldn’t be. He wasn’t smart. Or was he? The truth was she had no idea. She didn’t know anything about him.
A shadow filled the doorway, and she didn’t have to look up to know her worst nightmare had come true. She could sense his presence like a deer in the woods can sense a predator.
“Ah, here he is now. Miss Cross, I believe you know Mr. Howell?”
She swallowed the lump in her throat and sat up straighter. “Yes, sir.”
“West, I’ll leave it up to the two of you to work out your own schedule.”
West nodded, but remained quiet. Alexa was working hard not to stand up and pull her hair out like some sort of animated character in a cartoon while laughing hysterically. This could not be happening.
Mr. Guin continued on, unaware she was one step away from hysterics. “I’ll expect the two of you to work together four days a week.”
Alexa’s mouth dropped open, but no sound came out.
“I’ll evaluate your progress by the extra assignments you’ll be required to turn in at the end of each week. Also, if Mr. Howell feels you aren’t doing your absolute best to succeed or if he feels you aren’t taking this second chance seriously, he’s been told to report to me immediately. You will not fail this class because you weren’t given every opportunity to succeed. The only way to fail is to give up.” Mr. Guin leaned down toward her. “And we both know you’re not a quitter.”
While she appreciated the chance and his opinion of her work ethic, she was having a hard time concentrating on anything other than having to spend time outside of class with West four days a week. And now, he also knew she was an idiot. Perfect.

“Nothing’s getting past me,” I assured her.
Her breath washed over my lips as I leaned in to kiss her again when she whispered, “I thought we were talking about you.”
I paused for a few seconds, then looked up into her hazel eyes. “What?”
“I think I’m in danger from you.”
My brow pulled tight, and I forced out a low, frustrated laugh. “Me.”
She nodded again, the movement of her head so slow as her eyes explored mine. “I need you to let me go for so many reasons, but I easily forget why when you don’t. I think there was a reason neither of us crossed that invisible barrier before today. Because being in your arms?” She hesitated, her tongue quickly darting out to wet her lips. “Trust me, it’s dangerous.”
A weight pressed down on my chest, making it hard to breathe. Because damn it if she wasn’t right.
There were dozens of girls over the years who’d meant nothing more than a night. Maybe two. Not one could I remember the name of, most I couldn’t remember their face.
Then there’d been one who I would’ve sold my soul for if I could’ve had one more night with her.
My days with her had been everything. A slow burn that had built over time until I hadn’t been able to get enough of her. Until she’d meant too much.
And there hadn’t been a girl since.
Not a second glance. Not a thought. Nothing.
Until one morning at Brooks a few years ago.
But there was nothing slow about the thoughts and needs for the girl pressed against me. There hadn’t been since the very first morning I’d found her staring at a mirror like it had the power to destroy her world. Like that possibility fascinated her.
Fuck, if I didn’t need to find out why.
Dangerous was exactly what we were. Only she had no idea just how much.
My gut twisted as unwanted thoughts entered my mind, but I pushed them away. Because I knew what I needed to do. I needed to let her go and force myself not to follow.
But when there’s a flicker of light in your life after so much darkness, it’s impossible to stay away.
And this girl burned so damn bright.
Calling to me and beckoning me toward her, and I knew no matter how many times I let her slip away, I would follow her just to catch her again.
I brushed my thumb across her full lips. “Goddamn firefly.”










A powerhouse romantic suspense that will have you questioning your morals and second guessing your view on love.

She has a weakness for crude-humored movies and fried pickles, and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm … or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren’t really happening.
