Book Spotlight & Giveaway: Dalir’s Salvation by Nina Crespo

Dalir's Salvation by Nina Crespo

Nina will be awarding a digital copy of Dalir’s Salvation to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.

GENRE: Paranormal Romance

Description

To be with the man of her dreams, she’ll have to face her worst nightmares…

Ari is looking to live a normal life. But after she hits her head, normal is no longer an option. A mysterious, rugged man appears, whom only she can see… each night he fulfills her fantasies and leaves her begging for more. She’s sure he’s a figment of her imagination-until she finds out the hard way that he’s all too real. Now, to truly be with him, Ari will have to embrace the parts of herself she’s been desperately keeping at bay.

Dalir’s been burned by love before, yet he can’t resist Ari’s beauty and charm. And all it takes is one kiss to spark nights of passion. But there’s danger on the horizon that only Dalir and his friends in the band Thane’s Redemption can deal with. And the longer he stays with Ari, the greater the peril to them both. Will the two of them be strong enough to fight for their newfound love-and their lives?

Excerpt

Dalir's Salvation by Nina CrespoColby jogged up the stairs wearing tennis shoes, shorts, and a sweatstained T-shirt. His damp blond hair clung to his forehead. “Wouldn’t go down there if I were you. They’re moving furniture out of the sunroom.”

“For what?”

“They’re changing the back wall into a built-in bookcase.” Why couldn’t they just read the damn books instead of turning everything fucking upside down? “Where’s Thane and Reid?”

“They made themselves scarce early this morning along with Mace and West.”

Of course they had. Thane and Reid had led the team to stop rebellions, disasters, even a super virus from destroying humankind, but they couldn’t control their fiancées. The flush spreading over him and supernatural energy expanded in equal proportions.

A buzz emitted from the light switch.

“Whoa. Chill.” Colby raised his hands. “You’ll fry the circuits again. No electricity will only prolong the agony. Just do like the rest of us and leave.”

“You’re still here.”

“Not for long. I’m on recon duty.”

At least someone was getting some real work done. “Do you have a lead on Kell?”

“Possibly. The police in New Jersey are looking for a slasher. The victims’ wounds may have been caused by a sword.”

Knots tightened in Dalir’s gut. Since his escape, Kell had killed a woman scientist, kidnapped Lauren, and tortured Reid. Those were the incidents they knew about. Was he responsible for these murders, too?

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Nina Crespo lives in Florida where she indulges in her favorite passions — the beach, kick boxing, a good glass of wine, date night with her own real-life hero and dancing. Her lifelong addiction to romance began in her teens while on a “borrowing spree” in her older sister’s bedroom where she discovered her first romance novel. Curiosity about people and places, including what’s beyond the stars, fuels her writer’s imagination. This wellspring of inspiration allows Nina to create sensual contemporary stories and steamy paranormal tales, which she hopes will feed your own addiction for love, romance, and happily ever after. Current must haves include cupcakes with frosting and lots of sprinkles, and red wine chocolate blends.

Book Excerpt & Giveaway: The Grotesques by Tia Reed

The Grostesques by Tia Reed

Tia will be awarding a $20 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.

Genre: Urban Fantasy

Description

Discredited journalist Ella Jerome isn’t thrilled about working at Adelaide’s fanciful tabloid The Informer. So when zoologist Adam Lowell seeks her help in finding his missing cousin, she’s cynical of his claim a monster lurks near the Church of the Resurrection. The trouble is, solving the gruesome case could be her best shot at restoring her shredded reputation.

With her old instincts resurfacing, Ella combs the Port for clues. Experience tells her the only monsters are the human variety, and the bloodied stonemason certainly raises her suspicions. But when her investigation turns up everything from petrified remains to the headless carving of a dragon, the truth threatens to steal both her sanity and the man she’s falling for.

After all, gargoyles can’t be anything other than harmless stone. Or can they?

Excerpt

The Grostesques by Tia ReedElla slapped the snooze button on her alarm clock and buried her face in the pillow. A moment later the shrill ring of the telephone elicited a groan.

Her hand searched the cluttered bedside cabinet until it connected with her mobile. Turning over, she mumbled her name while wiping sleep-encrusted eyes, then immediately held the receiver away from her ear as the voice of Phil Waterman, senior editor at The Informer, barked down the line.

“Get out of bed. I need you to attend a press conference in half an hour. The police have just hauled another body from the Port River.”

“What?” Suddenly alert, Ella sat bolt upright.

“You heard me.”

Wincing in anticipation of Phil’s ear-splitting orders, she nestled the phone between her shoulder and ear and reached for the pen and pad that sat permanently between a lopsided lamp and an unfinished crime novel.

“You got details?” She flicked to a blank page.

“Of course I haven’t got any details, woman. You’re the journalist. Just get down there and report.” She could imagine him reclining in his chair, extended legs crossed in front of him, half-eaten cinnamon doughnut balanced on his beer belly.

“Who else is covering this?”

“I’m sending you.” She heard the slurp of a sucked finger.

“I’m not about to give you a vampire bat story.”

“Vampire bat? You got some lead I don’t know about?” His voice, though quieter, rasped suspiciously. “Last I heard the take was a killer shark.”

“Whatever, Phil. Look, you know I don’t do your sort of cover stories.”

“Yeah, but this is big, Jerome.” He adopted a confidential tone. “My reporters are sassy creative writers but they couldn’t look into a parking fine if the warden was waving it under their noses. You’re the best investigative reporter this state has, and I sure as hell want a scoop for The Informer.”

Ella sighed. “Phil, I might work for you, but I don’t want my name tagged to fantastical nonsense.” Even to her own ears she sounded tired, defeated. One day soon she was going to cave in and be done with clinging to whatever shreds of dignity she had left.

“Just get me the story. For Pete’s sake, woman, six girls missing, one with a severed torso and the latest…” He broke off. “Things could hardly get-”

“The latest what?” she interrupted.

“-more sensational than that.”

There was a pause as she waited vainly for an answer.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Tia Reed loves nothing better than burying her nose in a story of her own imagining, cuddling her bossy cat and rescuing chewed pillows from her hyperactive dog. She takes every opportunity to do all three when she is not teaching English as a second language. Her other hobbies usually take a back seat but include trying to tame her beast of a garden, hiking and travelling. The latter has thrown her many interesting, sometimes hair-raising experiences, which she loves twisting into stories. She was born in Malta, but lives in Adelaide, Australia.

Chris MacKinnon never liked having to live in the shadow of his older, too-sensible brother, pride leader, Mac. But being the second son has its privileges, and fun-loving Chris plans to enjoy them all.

When Mac takes a vacation on the island of St John for himself and his human mate, Zora, Chris tags along for ten days of fun in the sun with his latest girlfriend.

But then Chris meets and falls for Guinevere, a mysterious shifter who lives on the island. She’s everything he wants in a mate, and his one chance to have what Mac and Zora share: a lifelong bond of the deepest, truest love.

Guinevere is keeping a secret from Chris that may blow up his life as a lion shifter and destroy his relationship with Mac and sever his connection to the whole pride. Can Chris find a way to have his soul mate without losing everything, including his inheritance as co-leader of the MacKinnon pride?

Can love really conquer all?

Book Spotlight: New Romance Release — Lies, Love & Redemption

Lies, Love and Redemptionby Kelli A. Wilkins

www.KelliWilkins.com

Hi everyone,

Today I’m sharing an exclusive excerpt from my new historical western, LIES, LOVE & REDEMPTION. This full-length novel is set on the Nebraska prairie in 1877 and blends a steamy romance with mystery and danger.

Here’s the summary:

Lies, Love & Redemption

Shot and left for dead, Sam Hixton stumbles into a general store on the Nebraska prairie and collapses into the arms of Cassie Wilcox.

Cassie’s world is turned upside down when the handsome stranger drops into her life. Sam is another complication she doesn’t need: her business is dying and her trouble with the townspeople is escalating. Yet she’s determined to keep the store open — no matter what the cost.

As Sam recovers from his injuries, he hides the truth about his identity and convinces Cassie to let him work in the store. He’s attracted to her and admires her independent nature but quickly realizes Cassie’s in way over her head. They fight their growing attraction, and Cassie questions whether she can trust her fragile heart to a mysterious stranger. Will he accept her once he knows about her troubled past?

Cassie resists Sam’s advances and represses her feelings until one fateful night when they give in to their fiery passion. Together, they work out a plan to save the store but find their efforts are thwarted—and their lives endangered—by the locals.

Sam’s secret returns to haunt him and pulls him away just when Cassie needs him the most. Will he regain her trust when she learns the truth?

Cassie has everything invested in the store—can she save it and find true love with Sam before it’s too late?

A mild excerpt:

Cassie dusted off a can of apricots and restacked it on the shelf. “Why do I even bother?” she muttered as she picked up the next can.

Another week had come and gone, but her days were always the same. Get up at dawn, sweep out the store, dust off the cans, and . . . wait. Her few customers strolled in on Saturday and Sunday afternoons to buy odds and ends, but nearly everyone bought their bulk goods at the general store in Baxter. Townsfolk came here only when they wanted something quick—or on credit.

The bell above the door jangled, but she didn’t bother to turn around. “That you, Luke? You’re up early. I bet you haven’t seen this side of ten o’clock in—”

She glanced over her shoulder and shrieked. The can of apricots slipped from her hand and rolled across the floor.

A stranger covered in blood leaned against the doorjamb.

She rushed to his side. “Who are you? What happened?”

The man locked his blue eyes onto hers. “Help me.”

He held a battered leather satchel out to her. “Hide this,” he said, then collapsed forward.

Cassie caught him around the waist and eased him to the plank floor. Was he dead? She felt the side of his sweaty neck. His heart was beating, but he looked like hell. His clothes were coated in blood and dirt, and his face had a sickly white hue to it. He was lucky to be alive. Someone had shot him full of holes.

Where had he come from? Holloway was in the middle of nowhere with no railroad connection, and it wasn’t on the stagecoach line. She hadn’t heard a horse out front, and he couldn’t have walked here from Baxter, could he? That would be suicide.

Wild ideas raced through her mind as she stared down at him. Maybe he was a fugitive or a bank robber. Decent people didn’t get themselves shot for no reason. Whoever shot him could’ve been following him, looking to finish him off.

Her gaze settled on the satchel. What was in it? Money? Gold? The deed to a silver mine? Why did he want her to hide it?

Cassie brushed her hair away from her face and frowned. What the hell was she supposed to do with him? Why had he wandered into her store, of all places? The last thing she needed was a half-dead stranger complicating her life. His being here would only stir up trouble—and she already had more than she needed.

Maybe she could— With a start, she realized he hadn’t moved. She shook his bloodied left shoulder.  The man remained motionless. “Damn it to hell.” She yanked the satchel from his grip, then ran behind the counter and stuffed it in the bottom drawer. There wasn’t time to look inside and see what the stranger was hiding. Whoever he was, he needed help—fast.
