Release Day Blitz: Sacrafice


Title: Sacrifice
Author: Heather C. Myers
Genre: dark fantasy/mythology/forbidden love
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR
Blurb: 
What do you risk when you have nothing to lose?

Nothing, apparently, given that Keirah has no qualms showing up at Andie's doorstep, asking Jack if she can borrow his resources in order to find Noir. If that's all Andie has to worry about, she could handle her sister.

But it's not. 

Jack's new business partner and former flame is interested in investing in Andie's animal shelter, yet insists on Jack's presence during their meetings. On top of that, her closest friend Reese shares a secret that all but blindsides her. And then there's Lucas Burr, Onyx City's persistent DA, who wants nothing more than the city's incorruptible vigilante, Black Wing, rotting in a prison somewhere at the very least, and will do anything to get what he wants - including using Andie as bait.

In this thrilling conclusion of The Dark Paradise trilogy, the war between angels and demons is in full swing. Will Andie survive or will she be just another faceless casualty? 






Full disclosure: I am an acquired taste. I'm a typical blonde Orange County suburbanite who says 'like' more than necessary, laughs loud and probably obnoxiously, and loves to dance in the rain. I'm a 26 year old college graduate with more than a few tricks up my sleeve, and I also happen to be a pretty big Ducks fan. Oh, and I'm a writer. Like, for real. I recently signed with Anchor Group Publishing, which will see two of my series being published this year. I've self-published over 15 books, with more on the way, so I'm familiar with both a hybrid-traditional publishing method as well as self-publishing.  I don't speak in third person (normally) nor do I wear glasses (except when I'm feeling particularly mischievous). I'm lucky to have found my soul mate at the ripe old age of 22, even though he frustrates me on purpose to get a reaction out of me. We live near Disneyland, have two rambunctious female puppies, and have a beautiful baby girl. He has two amazing boys, and has gotten me hooked on Smallville, watching soccer (okay, okay FOOTBALL - FC Barcelona, baby!), and Cancun Juice.

Framed for a crime he didn't commit, 18 year old Ash Brandon finds himself being whisked away to what he thought was jail. Until he wakes up the next morning feeling really strange. But what's more strange are the people he meets.

When Ash discovers he is going through a frightening new metamorphosis, he has no choice but to trust these people.

Until he meets their beautiful young daughter, Eva, his whole outlook on life changes and she helps him accept who he was destined to become.

For they are the Keepers, and he is a Dragon Heart.
Crave Blurb:
I remember excruciating pain.
I remember unimaginable heat.
I remember an undeniably beautiful young woman.
But I’m not sure whether these things are real.
One year ago, Ash Brandon was framed and sent to an unknown realm where he learnt his fate. A fate where he held the blood of an ancient line of Dragon shifters called Dragon Hearts. The thing is, he can no longer remember. All he knows is that he is a nineteen-year-old guy who wants to study architecture and one day, take over the family business.
Then two beautiful girls show up in his life — one who is sexy as hell and could be the woman of his dreams, while the other claims to have known him from a past he cannot remember. Only there is one thing he can’t wrap his mind around — Why does he crave each of the girls?
A now eighteen-year-old Eva, a powerful Dragon Heart Keeper from the Dragon Realm, is punished by her parents and sent to the earthly realm by her witch maiden. Her memories have all been wiped clean, but why can she still remember Ash, and the undeniable bond they once shared?
Emily is a Siren princess, and she always gets what she wants. When she sets her sights on Ash, all bets are off. She will make him hers — if only his Keeper weren’t in the way.
Will Ash discover who he truly is before its too late? Or will his deadly addiction to both girls get him killed?

Sun God Seeks...Surrogate?

Sun God Seeks...Surrogate? by Mimi Jean Pafiloff (ARC Review)
Accidental Series Book 3

"Some series begin to lack in substance as they continue, or feel like their stuck on repeat.  Not this one!"

Synopsis -

A Deal from Heaven

Living in New York City, Penelope Trudeau has seen a lot of weird stuff-but nothing like the insane redhead who accosts her with a wild proposition. Penelope will get a million dollars if she has a baby with the strange woman's brother. With her mother dying from a mysterious disease, Penelope can use the money. Yet the terrified waitress is adamant that her womb and eggs are not for sale . . . until she meets her intended mate. He's impressively built, gorgeous, and red-hot, literally. He's a freaking immortal Sun God.

For thousands of years, Kinich (Nick to his friends) didn't believe in fraternizing with humans, so procreating with them is definitely a no-no. But after one sizzling encounter with the beautiful, passionate Penelope, Nick begins to think he was wrong . . . until he realizes meeting Penelope was just another one of his crazy sister's schemes at manipulation. But now that he has Penelope in his life, he can't let her go. Especially because doing so means throwing her into the hands of his dangerous enemies.

Review -

This has to be my favorite in the series', so far.  Completely unpredictable from the beginning to the end, and never a dull moment.  Fans also get to see their favorites and get updates on what has been going on in the lives of both Emma and Guy, and Helena and Niccolo.  Starting the book off with a special kind of twist, a quiz to the reader given by none other than the great Cimil, readers will be in tears from laughing, cringing through the lovely carnage, gasping at each surprise and twist, and more than a little hot under the collar from the steam coming off of the newest couple, Kinich(Nick) and Penelope.  And Vicktor may finally come face to face with his mystery dream woman.

Penelope is a single young woman who is barely able to make ends meet, working hard to take care both her and her sick mother.  So when Cimil approaches her with an indecent proposal, she finds it easy to say no, at first.  When she meets the man in question however, her answer begins to waver, and her body begins to heat up, and five hundred grand would go a long way in helping her mother who seems to worsen by the minute.  A mother with quite a few secrets of her own.  Both figuratively and literally, seeing as the man in question is Cimil's brother, the Sun God, Kinich.  But just as quickly as their love begins to bloom, it also may go up in flames even quicker due to a few misconceptions, misunderstandings and an X-Rated video on YouTube.   And thanks to one divine rerun of The Love Boat, the world may be coming to an end.

What I love most about this series' is that all of the women are the kind that take charge and except their lot in life, and while they may mope for a minute, they don't stay off of the band wagon for long.  Events take place that just may leave the women in charge of things, and the war leading up to the Apocalypse just may begin earlier than planned. 

Readers be warned, this book does end in a cliff hangar that will leave your mouth gaping open, so it is advised to have the rest of the series' close at hand.
