Synopsis:

In the wake of a brutal war, the archangel Raphael and his hunter consort, Elena, are dealing with the treacherously shifting tides of archangelic politics and the people of a battered but not broken city. The last thing their city needs is more death, especially a death that bears the eerie signature of an insane enemy archangel who cannot— should not—be walking the streets.

This hunt must be undertaken with stealth and without alerting their people. It must be handled by those who can become shadows themselves…

Ash is a gifted tracker and a woman cursed with the ability to sense the secrets of anyone she touches. But there’s one man she knows all too well without a single instant of skin contact: Janvier, the dangerously sexy Cajun vampire who has fascinated and infuriated her for years. Now, as they track down a merciless killer, their cat-and-mouse game of flirtation and provocation has turned into a profound one of the heart. And this time, it is Ash’s secret, dark and terrible, that threatens to destroy them both.

Oooooh! I am such a fan of this series and this book has already been preordered… Can you tell I am excited!!

Synopsis:

Twelve. Twelve of the deadliest beasts ever forged in the fires of hell have escaped onto our plane, and they want nothing more than to rip out the jugular of Charley Davidson and serve her lifeless, mangled body to Satan for dinner. So there’s that. But Charley has more on her plate than a mob of testy hellhounds. For one thing, her father has disappeared, and the more she retraces his last steps, the more she learns he was conducting an investigation of his own, one that has Charley questioning everything she’s ever known about him. Add to that an ex-BFF who is haunting her night and day, a rash of suicides that has authorities baffled, and a drop-dead sexy fiancé who has attracted the attentions of a local celebrity, and Charley is not having the best week of her life.

A tad north of hell, a hop, skip, and a jump past the realm of eternity, is a little place called Earth, and Charley Davidson, grim reaper extraordinaire, is determined to do everything in her power to protect it.

We’re doomed.

Excerpt: Long Way Home by Neve Cottrell

Picture

Long Way Home by Neve Cottrell

Goodreads

 iBooks  * Kindle  *  Nook

 Kobo  *  Amazon (print)

The blurb:

Tyler Barnes can’t believe his eyes when Alexis MacAdams walks back into his life.  His high school crush left Mangrove Island seventeen years ago and never looked back.  He’s held on to the memory of her, even though she never gave him a second glance.  Now Alexis is back for the holidays and Tyler is determined to make a lasting impression before she slips away again.  He soon learns, however, that her broken heart needs to heal before he has a chance to win it.  Can Tyler convince her to risk her heart for a second time?

The excerpt:

After a seventeen-year absence, Alexis MacAdams has returned to Mangrove Island and entered the bar where Tyler Barnes works.  Tyler wastes no time trying to get reacquainted ~

Tyler paused to let the memory in.  Even as a teenager, he’d admired her focus.  She’d had a fiery determination that other girls lacked.  He’d found her sexy as a teenager and he definitely found her sexy now.

“Fire in the belly?” she repeated.

“You were always on the go.  Could never tell whether you were running toward something or away from it.”

She smiled wryly.  “A bit of both, I would say.”

“So what do you do now?”

“I’m a whore,” she announced after a dramatic pause.

Tyler raised an eyebrow, waiting for her to elaborate.  He was confident that Alexis MacAdams had not turned to prostitution.

“Well, I screw people for money.  Same thing.”

He wagged a finger at her.  “Ah, you must work for the government.”

“Close.  Greedy, fat cat lawyer at your service.”  She tilted her chin thoughtfully.  “Actually, I’m not at your service, unless you own some multi-million dollar conglomerate that I’m not aware of.”

Tyler leaned forward and rested his elbows on the bar.  “You had me at whore.”

Alexis’s faint smile broadened, her first genuine smile in a long while, and Tyler was glad to see the scowl dissipate.  God, he remembered that smile.  It was all he could do not to lean that little bit further and close the gap between them.

“So do you actually tend bar or are you here for window dressing?”

He snapped back to reality, drawing himself up to his full six feet.  “I’m sorry, I’m neglecting your alcohol-related needs.  Let me guess,” he said, assessing her.  “Some kind of ‘tini.  Appletini?”

“Isn’t that a risky way to ask for an order?  Potentially insulting customers?”

“Am I wrong?” he asked, with a crooked smile.

“Whiskey, please.”

He doubled over as if wounded.  “Ouch.  You’ve destroyed my average.”

“I’ve heard that a lot in bars.”  The lie slid from her lips with ease.  The truth was that Alexis rarely spent time in bars, even in her twenties when she was flush with cash and single.  It suddenly dawned on her that, not only was he flirting with her, but she was flirting with him.  In a bar.  In her hometown.  The moment felt surreal.

“No chaser?” he queried.

She cocked an eyebrow, challenging him.  “I like to feel the burn.”

“An actual fire in the belly,” he mused.  “I like it.  Is Jameson all right?”

“Perfect.”

He poured her drink, added a drop of water, and slid it across the bar to her.  “I have to admit, I’m relieved.  I hate making those cocktails.  Thankfully, most people on the island have simpler taste.”

“I’ve never been a cocktail girl.  Too sweet.”

“Are you trying to tell me you’re not sweet?” he teased.

Alexis tasted the whiskey.  It burned through her core and warmed her from the inside out.  “I may be a lot of things, but I don’t think sweet has ever been on the list.”

Tyler didn’t doubt it.  For him, her aloofness had been part of her charm.  She may have been the girl in the next neighborhood, but she was far from the girl next door.  He’d walked around in awe of her, which is probably why he’d never gathered the courage to ask her out.  She hadn’t been accessible, partly because she seemed to exist in her own reality, and partly because he’d built her up in his mind to mythic proportions.  Back then, simply spotting Alexis from a distance had turned him on.  Seeing her seated directly across from him now had Tyler’s entire body humming.

Excerpt: Gideon Lee by Lisa Orchard

Gideon Lee by Lisa Orchard

Synopsis:

Will Lark’s quest for answers sabotage her musical dreams?

Seventeen-year-old Lark Singer only has two things going for her, her music and her best friend Bean. While entering a competition she hopes will launch their music career, Lark searches for answers that will make her whole. Her quest reveals some secrets that those around her would rather keep hidden. As the competition looms closer, Lark discovers not only who she really is, but also who her real friends are. Then tragedy threatens everything she has worked so hard to accomplish. Can she pick up the pieces and move on?

Excerpt:

Chapter One

I want to be like Gideon Lee. My lips move as I read the title of my essay. They twitch as I stifle a snicker. Looking around the room, I make sure no one has seen my facial tic. My eyes light upon the Presidents’ pictures lined up on the wall. They face me, each with a unique expression, and I wonder what they were thinking while they posed. They are above the clock so my gaze naturally falls on it. It’s almost time for lunch.

I settle back in my seat and my lips twitch again. A feeling of defiant exhilaration washes over me like a tidal wave.

Montgomery’s going to freak when he reads this.

Despite my best efforts, a giggle escapes and the boy in front of me turns around and gives me the evil eye. I return the glare. He is slumped over, and sweat beads on his upper lip. I think this is odd — it’s rather chilly in the room — but dismiss it before I turn back to my essay.

I bet old man Montgomery doesn’t even know who Gideon Lee is. This thought sends another giggle to the surface, but I quickly squash it by biting my lip.

I picture him searching Gideon Lee’s name on the Internet. I see his expression changing from confusion to disgust. I imagine him taking off his black, thick-rimmed glasses and shaking his head. I hear him mutter, “Lark Singer, what are you doing?” He rubs his face. I can actually hear the rough sandpapery sound as his hand finds his day old stubble. He sighs and puts his glasses back on. “What am I going to do with you?”

I remember when Mr. Montgomery first told us about the assignment. We were supposed to write an essay on someone we admire, someone who has contributed to society in some way. I know when he says this he wants us to write about an a historical figure. After all this is history class, but I raised my hand anyway.

“Lark,” he called out as he stood at his lectern.

“Do they have to be dead?”

He cocked his head as he studied me with his piercing blue eyes. Then he ran his hand over his military style crew cut, and I watched as his salt and pepper hair flattened then popped back into place as if each hair was standing at attention. I could tell he wasn’t sure where this was going. “Well… I guess not.” That’s when he froze, as if he realized he had just opened a door for me and he wasn’t going to like what was on the other side. He shifted his weight, and looked down at the floor before he backpedaled. “But they have to have made a positive contribution to society. It can’t be about a mobster or anything like that.” Pursing his lips, he stared at me, fiddling with those glasses. “This is one half of your semester grade, Lark. I wouldn’t pull any funny stuff.”

“Oh, I won’t. Scout’s honor,” I answered sweetly, placing my hand over my heart and giving him the scout salute, while inside I planned my rebellion.

I have him. I’m going to write about Gideon Lee, and there’s nothing he can do about it.
