Book Blitz - Night In His Eyes - Alisyn Fae & Emma Alisyn

Night In His Eyes
Alisyn Fae & Emma Alisyn
(The Fae Prince of Everenne, #1)
Publication date: March 17th 2022
Genres: Adult, Fantasy, Romance

A war of Fae Houses. A Prince waking from darkness. A woman drenched in his blood.

Prince Renaud, my mother’s killer, is waking. The Court has not felt the full weight of an Old One in centuries, and it’s my fault.

I am Aerinne Capulette, Lady of House Faronne, and I will have my vengeance against House Montague and Renaud. But despite the ground war I’ve led since I was a child, we remain locked in bloody stalemate.

If the Prince takes the field against us, he will rip from my mind the secret that will shred any hope for peace, or victory.

He will kill me if he discovers the truth. . .

. . .sweet, foolish child. Your death is not what I desire. I have not waited, watched, and planned for centuries to let something as petty as a halfling girl’s vengeance keep me from claiming what is mine.

To protect you, and to ensure my reign, I will bend you to my will. I will slake this obsession with your blood and tears, and I will yield you to no one.

Let your House protest. Let my Court look aghast. They are nothing.

And you—you are my anchor.

We may be enemies, but your hatred only seduces my darkness.

Night in His Eyes is an adult high heat, slow burn Fae fantasy romance, first in the Fae Prince of Everenne series. This not a standalone and ends in a cliffhanger.

For readers who crave enemies-to-lovers, obsessed dark heroes, murderous heroines and a battle of dark wills and enjoy authors such as Sylvia Mercedes, Sarah J. Maas, Kathryn Ann Kingsley, and Laura Thalassa.

EXCERPT:

“No.”

The Prince halted, and glanced up at the sky. “My amusement is diminishing. I had hoped to relearn the taste of wine tonight.”

“Sorry to keep you from your red.” I doubted he was a white kind of guy.

“It is not an apology I desire from you.”

What did he desire. . .other than the subjugation of Everenne’s Low Fae, and the Lords of the High and Low Courts kneeling beneath his boot?

I lifted my blades.

Renaud’s mouth thinned as he let me attack, eyes a flat grey. I refused to return to Faronne without every bone in my body broken from trying. I wouldn’t kneel at my mother’s grave and confess weakness.

Return victorious or on your shield.

A line of fire grazed my sword arm. I ignored the pain and my dark angel, sheathing my long dagger and shifting the sabre to my left hand so the dripping blood didn’t threaten my grip.

I panted, my breaths harsh and acid with the nausea of forcing myself to remain on my feet. The moon peeked over the horizon.

“Enough, Aerinne,” the Prince said, expression now concealed by the encroaching night. His eyes still glowed.

“Stop. . .saying my name like that.” I swayed.

“Like what?”

“Like you know me.”

“You cannot fathom what I know, girl. Now, sheathe your sword.” A bite in his voice. A hint of a leviathan in his depths.

“No—”

The back of his hand crashed against my face.

I crumpled to the ground. He’d pulled the blow at the last second, enough not to break me. But definitely sufficient to enforce the command to lay down my sabre.

I was staring up at the sky, dazed and unable to force my limbs to work, when a strong hand wrapped around my sword arm and yanked me to my feet.

“Tell me what you see,” Prince Renaud said.

I didn’t need to look around me to know. The white stone was awash with red, dark because of the night. And the Prince surveyed it coolly, unfazed and still at full strength. Killing him wouldn’t be easy.

“The result of several generations worth of blood feuds.” I matched his chill, pointed tone, channeling the hauteur my mother could don at the drop of a hat, the effect marred because my head ached, and my words came out slightly slurred.

Renaud shifted his grip, arm sliding around my back to hold me up as if shouldering my weight was the most natural thing in the world. “The result of our inability to change.”

He grabbed the sabre still clutched in my hand and tossed it aside. “Our enduring obstinacy and adherence to norms that almost caused our destruction once. I did not cross the realms and seize this city only for it to bite my hand. This—” his gaze traveled over the battle “—this was never your ambition. It was never even your mother’s.”

“Don’t speak of her.” Another twist of pain in my head. I grit my teeth through the pulse.

His arm tightened around me. “I knew Maryonne for far longer than you, girl. I’ll speak of her if I wish, and you will listen.”

Anger gave me a jet stream of strength. “I may be hot-headed, but you’re arrogant. You think you know our moves and will counter them all.” I pushed away from him and turned, one foot behind the other. “I won’t listen to you.”

If I had doubts before, I had none now. He would pay for my mother, for his casual claim of kinship to which he had no right. She was mine, grief was mine.

“And if you cared for my mother, as you imply, Danon would be free!” I screamed the last three words, self-control broken and tossed aside like trash. “I’ll leave this field when one of us is dead.”

Eyes narrowed and watchful, he didn’t move, the sword in his hand pointed down. “So you Vowed.”

Wind whipped my hair in my face, a sudden steep rise of the night breeze. “I will fulfill my Vow, and not only because I must.”

I took another step back, defiant, uncaring of his anger.

Paused.

And bared my teeth. For a fleeting moment, I accepted what I was.

Fae.

Bound by my anger, grounded in my vengeance.

I might fail, but I would fail victoriously, taking his blood and kin with me as I perished.

“Release the wyverns!”

In this humorously touching novel by the critically acclaimed author of Degrees of Love, a woman is blindsided when her high school sweetheart abandons her after eighteen years of marriage.

At sixteen, Kimberly Kirby thought the only thing she needed to be perfectly happy was to spend the rest of her life with Jay Braxton. Twenty years later, she still believes it. As they proudly watch their daughter, Haley, graduate from high school, she imagines her life is as perfect as anyone could reasonably expect. Jay is a formidable attorney, she a freelance writer, and their love as strong as ever. With Haley heading to UC Berkeley in the fall, Kimberly fantasizes about making love on the kitchen table. She has no clue that Jay's bags are already packed.

Now divorced and determined to squelch her love for Jay, she accepts a gig writing a sex and dating blog for divorcees. As the Virgin Dater, she is on the hunt for love. No-strings-attached nights with a sexy fireman and moving to San Francisco are just what she needs to boost her battered ego and mend her shattered heart.

Review: A Rosewood ThAnksgiving - Christina Sky ( Pretty Little Liars KW)





Pretty Little Liars (TV Series 2010–2017) - IMDb


Rosewood ThAnksgiving (Pretty Little Liars; PLL HolidAys)

Review : A Rosewood ThAnksgiving - Christina Sky - October 2013

I am normally not a fanfiction reader but when it comes to Pretty Little Liars and the world it is set in Rosewood, this is my jam. This would have to be one of my all-time favorite series and the world/books have just stayed with me for all these years reading the Kindle Worlds which were published between 2012-2015 brings me joy as I get to relive the memories and characters. It's that time of year again, Thanksgiving in the town of Rosewood and the Hastings are hosting their big annual dinner party, Ashley and Hanna Marin are helping Ted in the soup kitchen as Caleb is away visiting his mother, Emily is hanging with her mum as her girlfriend Paige is away with family, Aria gets a surprise as her mum is back in town and Ezra is spending time with Maggie and Malcolm. However, things are about to hit a point as with any PLL novel -- the trouble hits the fan and nothing is ever easy when you are being stalked by A and everything has something to hide whether you are the main character - one of the PLL or a side character like Lucas, Jake, Jason, etc. A Rosewood ThAnksgiving will also end in tragedy as one of the four girl's mothers is hurt. If you ever get a chance to find these old ebooks, then they are perfect for the PLL fan inside of us all. Our inner Pretty Little Liars geek squad.

Review: His Secret Family - Ali Mercer






His Secret Family


Review: His Secret Family - Ali Mercer - September 2019


After a few DNFs, I needed something to grip me and I came across His Secret Family by Ali Mercer. If there is one thing that I love to read it is books about double lives and families as living one life is hard enough and I don't know how people make time for two. I could see it happening if they supposedly travel but even still. This one was a little deceiving with the title as he does have another family but he had separated from her and divorced her rather than living a double life at the same time. However, his new family had no idea about his previous family,  but his old wife knew about his new family. The book starts with Paula who has just learned that her ex-husband's daughter is about to get married and is just down the road. Finally, the whole family is in one room, she is finally ready to confront Mark and his new family and unearth the lies. The next thing, Mark has a heart attack. The book then jumps back in time to Jenny who has just met Mark for the second time and this time it's fate as he is single too. Jenny is a single mother to Ava and Ellie. I liked Ellie's character as she has a few psychic abilities and I wish that they had developed that more as would have been intriguing. The book is slow-paced but as I said all comes to a halt at Ava's wedding when they are met face to face with Paula and her daughter Daisy who is on the Autism Spectrum. The family and daughter that Mark decided to pretend didn't exist as he was ashamed of them - which is quite Hardcase as when you learn about Mark's family history, it clearly shows that the Autism spectrum came from his side rather than Paula's.  If you are looking for a thriller, then this book isn't for you but if you are wanting an edgy women's fiction/family drama then check out His Secret Family by Ali Mercer today.

Devil’s Temptation by Trish Heinrich Book Blitz

Devil’s Temptation
Trish Heinrich
(Silver City Celestials, #1)
Publication date: August 24th 2021
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

I’m just a human, standing in front of the devil…
…trying not to succumb to my darkest desires.

The truth is, all a girl really needs is chocolate and a lifetime supply of AA batteries.

Well, that and revenge on the ex that destroyed my career as an investigative journalist.

Which is why the devilishly handsome dark angel that saved my life is nothing more than a means to an end. Getting close to him will resurrect my career.

But when he looks at me like I’m his greatest desire, I can’t resist the temptation of knowing what forbidden fruit like him would taste like.

After all, I’ve learned my lesson. This time it’s just pleasure, no attachment.

Because men like him were made to break hearts, and mine can’t afford anymore cracks.

Warning: This book has a wounded bad boy billionaire, a feisty heroine, steamy public displays of affection and a HOT HEA. If that’s your romance poison, then you may have to stay up all night to finish Devil’s Temptation. (This is a full-length novel with a dual first person POV and a guaranteed HEA. Recommended for mature audiences.)

EXCERPT:

“Just let me go home and forget this whole night ever happened!”

“I don’t want you to go,” Nathan said.

“And why not? You want to ask me for another favor?”

“No, I–”

“Because right now the only thing I want is–”

“I want you to stay, Tessa! And not because I want a favor.”

I swallowed because his voice wasn’t angry or demanding. It was panicked, almost desperate as if he needed me to understand.

“Why then?” I asked, more calmly.

He closed the small distance between us, the heat of his body grazing over mine. Flecks of gold ignited in his eyes, sending my blood pounding through my veins.

“I want you, Tessa.”

“Me?” I tried to keep some kind of distance in my voice, a kernel of disbelief. But it was hard when Nathan was looking like he wanted to devour me.

“I’ve wanted you from the first moment I laid eyes on you,” he breathed. “I think of you all day and night. I imagine what it would be like to kiss you, taste you. I get lost in those thoughts and I never want to leave. Wanting you…it’s consuming me.”

He was running his hands up my arms while he spoke, his fingers trailing heat in their wake. I couldn’t breathe hearing him talk like that, it was too much to hope that he felt so much for me.

“I…”

“Tell me you want me, too.”

I’d never heard Nathan plead before, and I had a feeling I was one of the few.

My eyes skated over his face, fingers following the trail of my gaze. He closed his eyes, savoring my touch.

“I want you,” I breathed. “Nathan–”

His lips captured mine in a kiss that seared my soul, spreading a fire under my skin that would devour me, and I didn’t care. My hands found their way into his hair as his arms crushed my body to his. My tongue plundered his mouth, waking the sleeping hunger deep inside. I needed him so badly that my entire body ached for more of his hands, his mouth.

Just as I was about to hook my leg over his hip and climb him like a fucking tree, Nathan broke off the kiss and tugged me toward the private elevator waiting for us.

As soon as we were inside, he backed me against the wall, hand fisting in my hair and mouth slamming onto mine. I tugged on the ends of his shirt and shoved my hands underneath. My fingers ran greedily over the hard planes of his stomach and chest. He felt so damn good, better than I had imagined, and now I wanted to know what that hard chest would feel like on top of me, pressing me into his mattress as he fucked me.

Nathan’s lips bit their way down my throat and I let loose a moan.

“I’ve never done this in an elevator before,” I breathed.

The grin he delivered shot heat straight to my groin.

“Next time I’ll bend you over and take you right here, but this time, I want you on my bed.”

“You have imagined this, haven’t you?”

“Oh Tessa, you have no idea.”
