Bitter Frost
Frost #1
by
Kailin Gow




*** Synopsis ***


All her life, Breena had always dreamed about fairies as though she lived among them...beautiful fairies living among mortals and living in Feyland.

In her dreams, he was always there the breathtakingly handsome but dangerous Winter Prince, Kian, who is her intended. When Breena turns sixteen, she begins seeing fairies and other creatures mortals don't see. Her best friend Logan suddenly acts very protective.

Then she sees Kian, who seems intent on finding her and carrying her off to Feyland. That's fine and all, but for the fact that humans rarely survive a trip to Feyland, a kiss from a fairy generally means death to the human unless that human has fairy blood in them or is very strong, and although Kian seemed to be her intended, he seems to hate her and wants her dead.

From Gods
Descendant Prophecies #1
by
Mary Ting




*** Synopsis ***


Did you just see a flash of lightning across the sky on a clear sunny day? It's not from Mother Nature. It is most likely from Mason Grand, swoon-worthy demigod, one of Zeus's descendants.

Skylar Rome is supposed to be having the best summer ever before she heads off to college. Little did she know, her whole life was about to change while visiting her cousin. Nearly drowning at the beach due to unknown forces, one of the Grand brothers she'd just met, Mason, saves her life. Cool, collected, mysterious, and dangerously good-looking, Skylar is drawn to him from the start. Though she knows he is the type of guy good girls stayed away from, it seems he is always saving her life, and the attraction was inevitable.

Upon meeting the brothers, strange things begin to happen. When she accidentally kills one of the brothers, it throws her life into turmoil, as they search to find the answers. Implausibly, she gets caught up in a world of the decedents of ancient gods, all who have super powers. Not only is her discovery difficult to accept, evil beings are after her. Running out of time and running for her life, she must unravel a mystery. What do they want from her? Forced into a battle set into motion long before she was born, will she find the answers, or will she die trying?

*** Excerpt ***


Scrambling to find the nearest bathroom I made a sharp turn at a corner and collided with a body; a big hard body at that.

"Watch where you're going." I barked. Watching in slow motion as my textbooks crashed against the floor.

"Ava?" The familiar voice questioned. Oh, my shit. That voice was in my dreams every night for the past week. The memory of his bright blue eyes haunted me. His lips. God, those lips left torched imprints on my skin and his touch; only his touch was able to obliterate any man who came before him. I couldn't get this guy out of my head. I hated it. I was terrified to look up maybe if I kept ignoring him he'd leave.

"Ava?" He called again. Ugh, take a hint!

Crouching down to pick up my books his hand reached over and touched mine. The cloudiness in my mind dissolved as my senses became highly responsive to his touch. Get ahold of yourself, Ava. Quickly retracting my hand I stood, every fiber in my body was on high alert. Our eyes collided and my fears were rewarded with a panty-dropping smile.

Fuck me... not literally.

*Blog Tour* Jagged Love by Nicole Simone + Excerpt + Teasers + #Giveaway @NicoleSimone20 @BTSPromosPR @ReadLoveLust




Jagged Love
by
Nicole Simone

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: December 9, 2015




*** Synopsis ***


The day I found my mother dead was the day I was set free. That might sound harsh but my mother was a drug addict. Had been since I was a baby. Pills were her salvation. Crack was her demise. I should have known though, even dead, my mother's demons wouldn't stop chasing me.

To the outside world, I'm a normal, twenty something year old woman - brown hair with caramel colored highlights, gray blue eyes and French manicured tips. What they don't see are the map of scars etched into my skin or the barb wired wrapped around my heart. As the saying goes, it only takes one person to change your life. That person for me was Andrew.

From the moment we locked eyes, I was hooked. He was intriguing, a word that doesn't get used lightly. Men were a dime a dozen, but Andrew – Andrew was special. I could tell in the way he spoke, passionately and without reservation. However, my type and his type didn't mix. We were bound to explode yet I was powerless to the attraction between us. As our paths merge, secrets are revealed, past bleeds into present and danger lurks on the horizon.

*** Excerpt ***


Andrew drew closer. Pure male exuded out of his pores, raw and primal. My skin heated as his crotch pressed against my behind. A smile could be heard in his voice when he spoke. "He has five kids and a wife. They run him ragged but he secretly loves it."

"Do you want that?" I whispered. "A family to call your own?"

Andrew's lips brushed against my ear, sending my pulse to skyrocket. I waited with bated breath for an answer I wasn't sure I wanted to hear.

"I thought I did once but not anymore." My shoulders sagged with relief. Andrew chuckled. "I'm guessing we are on the same page."

This was an oddly intimate conversation to have facing the wall. I spun around and immediately second-guessed my decision. The air in the room grew thick with sexual chemistry as I fought against his magnetic pull. Alarms blared in my head. Roommates with benefits weren't part of the package. Obviously, Andrew didn't get that memo though. Captivated by his eyes as clear as a reflecting pool, he brushed a lock of hair from my face.

"When I look at you, I see color. Oranges, pinks, turquoise, and deep purples. You're Technicolor amongst an otherwise bland world."

My breath snagged in my throat. "No I'm not. I'm grays, black, and muted beige."

"One day you'll see how I see you and that day will be the greatest day of my life because then you'll know you're worth more than gold."

His words poked at a raw and vulnerable place hidden amongst the scars. I acted self confident and assured, but it was a ruse. How did Andrew know that? My eyes fell to the floor.

He lifted my chin with the tip of his finger. Using his thumb as a paintbrush, he painted the lines of my face. With each feather light touch, the passion in his eyes grew brighter.

I could feel myself unraveling, thread by thread until there was nothing left. "Just fucking kiss me," I growled.

As if coming out of a trance, Andrew stumbled backwards. His gaze became unfocused and wild. The cold slap of rejection sunk into my bones.

"Forgive me." Andrew looked at his hands and shoved them into his pockets. "That was uncalled for."

He skittered away before I could say otherwise. My back slid against the wall and I tucked my knees to my chest. Bewildered tears clogged my throat. Anybody in his right mind would have heard the need in my voice, so why did Andrew act like he'd stolen my virginity?
