Cover Reveal: Elfin Nights (Book 2) by Brantwijn Serrah

Elfin Nights Cover Final 600 x 900

Blurb

The changeling princesses of the Springtime elves share a unique bond with their Knight—a bond that must remain perfectly secret. When the Queen of the Elves discovers their passionate love, she curses and exiles Finn from the elfin lands forever. With their guardian sent away to a lifeless wasteland, the royal changelings have no defense when the unseen enemies of the Four Courts attack, and the House of Elves falls.

To save his loves, Finn will need to break out of prison, undertake a perilous journey across the lands of Thairy, face wicked creatures, rogue Knights, and one of the most dangerous monsters in the fae world.

The enemy will soon learn what it means to provoke a true Son of War.

Bio

They say you should never meet your heroes, but Brantwijn Serrah says otherwise. At a Los Angeles book signing in 2012, Brantwijn met one of her all-time favorite authors of urban fantasy, Jim Butcher, who couldn’t have been kinder or more encouraging to her. As it turned out, the book he signed for her that night gave her a spark of inspiration for the Four Courts series.

When she isn’t visiting the worlds of immortals, demons, dragons and goblins, Brantwijn fills her time with artistic endeavors: sketching, painting, customizing My Little Ponies and playing with graphic design. She can’t handle coffee unless there’s enough cream and sugar to make it a milkshake, but try and sweeten her tea and she will never forgive you. She moonlights as a futon for four lazy cats, loves tabletop role-play games, and can spend hours on end sketching characters and scenes in her secret notebooks.

Cover Reveal: Hidden Magic by Stephany Wallace

hm-cover

BLURB/SYNOPSIS

How would you feel if you discovered magic was real, and the kind of powers that until now you’ve only read about are actually part of this world?

Cynwrig “Cyn” Bressall is a Celtic warrior with the unique ability to harness and wield Druid magic in a way never before seen. Making him the only Druid Warrior to ever exist. After surviving a horrible night that began the extinction of his race, Cyn has spent the last two thousand years searching for the only man that can lead the Order of the Druids and mend the scars marring his soul. Instead, his quest leads him to a woman whose essence is unlike anything he’s ever felt.

Orphaned as a baby and raised by her loving but over protective grandfather, twenty-three year old Briana “Bri” Anwell has led an isolated life. Friendless and stuck in a job with no prospect, the self-proclaimed flower child finds solace in her only friends. Books. And imagines an adventurous life in a magical world where anything is possible.

So when a sexy stranger suddenly appears in her world as though he stepped out of her favorite story, she dismisses him as a figment of her imagination. But soon she realizes he’s so much more than he seems.

He signifies everything she’s fantasized about, but is there a place for her in his extraordinary world?

Cover Reveal: Operation Wildcat by Megan Michelau

The day has finally come! I finally get to show you the prettiest cover I’ve ever seen.. I know, I know I might be a little biased because it’s my own cover but seriously, I love it so much!

So without further ado…

MM_OperationWildcat_600x900

Blurb

Jess Baker thought being a leopard shifter in the small town of Blackford was the most exciting thing that was ever going to happen to her. She wanders through her days blissfully unaware of the dangers lurking behind the seemingly peaceful façade of her hometown. When the mysterious Caleb Marsh waltzes into her family’s diner, her attention is irreversibly drawn to him. Little does she know the intriguing stranger will be the key to her survival.

Caleb Marsh is a man on a mission. He’s been charged with the job of finding the men responsible for shifter deaths throughout the country. When he stumbles upon a local shifter willing to assist in any way she can he can’t refuse her. The lines between duty and love begin to blur and Caleb must do what he does best to protect not only her, but the shifter community as well. Will their bond be severed or will love triumph?

Excerpt

The waitress’s scent caught his attention as she came near. Shifter. He leaned back in the booth and allowed her to place a menu in front of him. She stared at him through suspiciously narrowed brilliant green eyes. The woman could be described as stunning, tall and lean with the legs of a runner. Her hair cascaded over her shoulders in soft gold waves, sun streaks throughout.

“What can I get you to drink?” She asked.

She wore a faded Motley Crue concert shirt, holey jeans, and flip flops. The smell of leopard radiated from her, filling his nostrils. But if he wasn’t mistaken there was more than one in the building. Caleb gave a quick glance toward the counter and saw two younger women huddled together. The one standing before him angled herself in such a way to make sure she shielded what must be her family from his view.

“Black coffee and a glass of water,” he ordered as he picked up the menu to browse. With a nod, the waitress left but returned quickly with his drinks.

“What can I getcha?” She asked, then pulled a pad of paper out of her back pocket and a pen from behind her ear.

“I’ll get a steak sandwich, rare, and mashed potatoes with gravy on the side.” She jotted down his order. When she glanced back up, they locked eyes. The challenge reflected in her gaze surprised him. An unmistakable seriousness and the promise of bodily harm were evident. It told him if he tried anything she didn’t like, he would be sorry. With a nod, she turned and walked away. She handed the order to one of the other shifters and sat down at the counter, gave him one last quick glance, and then returned to the paper that lay open in front of her. His cat’s curiosity piqued, he wanted to find out as much as he could about the bold woman. Strictly professional of course.

Caleb sipped his coffee and smiled. This job might be easier than he first expected. Not only had he found what he assumed was a family of leopard shifters, but they possibly owned the local diner where humans frequented. They may have heard something that would help.

The waitress returned with his order. She placed a porcelain plate holding a mouth-watering steak sandwich and potatoes on the table in front of him. “Can I get you anything else?” She crossed her arms over her well-endowed chest.

What would it be like to have her voluptuous breasts pressed against him? Snap out of it! He gave himself a mental shake.

Cover Reveal: Breathless by Jessica Bayliss

Happy Wednesday to all of you! I have another cover reveal for you and I couldn’t think of a better time to do it than Humpday!

Breathless Banner Official

Breathless COVER - large - OFFICIAL

Isn’t it pretty!

Bayliss Bio Pic-Head Shot

BIO:

They say write what you know, so Jessica Bayliss did. Her story, “Breathless,” was inspired by her own experience running out of air on a scuba dive—except without all the steamy romance and eerie paranormal happenings. Alas, real life. Obviously, she survived. Her genre-bending fiction holds a little something for everyone. A lover of ghost tales and horror since her days scanning VHS rental shelves–admittedly with eyes half-averted from the gory covers–a touch of the mysterious always finds a home in Jessica’s work. Romance with a dash of supernatural. Horror with a bit of humor. You get the gist. Jessica also writes across age groups and is a firm believer in the motto: there is a new reader born every day, whether young or not-so-youngHer work has been published by Leap Books in the recent young adult anthology, “Beware the Little White Rabbit,” and in Issue 31 of Sanitarium Magazine. She has more stories in her head than she knows what to do with and several pieces in the works at any given time, so be sure to keep an eye out for more from Jessica in the coming months.

BLURB:

A brush with death brings Leah closer to the ghosts she longs to find and throws her into the arms of the troubled scuba instructor who saves her.

Dale, an Operation Enduring Freedom Veteran, is haunted by his own restless spirits. He’s on a hunt for forgiveness, and the Caribbean Sea is his hunting ground.

The peace they search for lies in the bond they never suspected they shared.

EXCERPTS:

Short: I’m seventy feet below the Caribbean Sea, and I’m out of air.

MAIN Excerpt:

He breathes with me, using his pace to slow mine. It feels like too much. The stillness. Our breath as one. His touch against my face and unyielding gaze locked onto mine. I want to escape up to safety, but he won’t let me.

All I can do is trust him.

And one last tidbit for all of you! 

1.Share with our readers a little about your book. (Remember to make it so they want to read more LOL)

“Breathless” is a romantic ghost about a young woman, Leah, who is traveling alone in the British Virgin Islands. The action begins during a scuba dive at a sunken wreck, supposedly haunted, when Leah discovers her oxygen tank is empty. This story is inspired a little bit from my own experience. I actually ran out of air during a dive about two years ago. Obviously, I survived. But, I’ll tell you, it was pretty darned freaky. In Leah’s case, she turns to one of the dive instructors, Dale, an Operation Enduring Freedom veteran, to get her back to the surface safely. The shared exhilaration of their experience forges a connection between these two. I bet you can see where this is going …

As the tour group moves from the boat to the beach for an overnight campout, Dale and Leah are drawn to each other. They discover they’re each searching for ghosts, but for very different reasons. Throw in a moonlight hike, a salt pond, a bonfire …

I love a little supernatural with my romance, so I set out to give readers a contemporary, real-world story, with paranormal flair.

It’s up to you to decide if Leah’s and Dale’s ghosts are real.

 2. Tell us about yourself and what brought you to writing?

I have a career that is very different from writing, but writing is something I’ve done since I was a kid, although not seriously until 2010. I tried to write my first book in high school, and even got a bunch of chapters done. I have it somewhere in my house. I should dig it out and see how awful it was. I started another one right around the time I began grad school, which took over my life, and I totally forgot about the book. Years later, I got the writing bug back. I found the book I started in grad school, threw out almost all of it, and then finished it a year later. I’ll confess: it was not good, but it was one of the best moments of my life. I wrote my second book the next year while rewriting the first—a task that took three years, and I’m sure an editor would still give me plenty to do on it. Now, I’ve written four novels and a whole slew of short stories, one of which is “Breathless.” In the last five years, I’ve grown so much as a writer, largely from meeting other writers and from practice. I must state: the network I’ve built—these people are incredible. I could never do this without them. We’re there for each other every single day.

3. Do you believe in Bigfoot?

Absolutely not. But we’re Bigfoot fans in our house. My husband, Eric, bought us our very own garden Yeti, complete with a sign, warning everyone to beware. Eric’s Bigfoot impersonation is superb, by the way. Despite my skepticism, one of my future projects will contain a Yeti. My second book is called “Therapist of the Damned,” and it’s about a psychologist who discovers her patients are vampires and all manner of supernatural creatures. I love this concept, although I’m well aware that vampires are a tough sell these days; if I’m never able to get it published, I’ll probably continue to develop the stories, because they’re pure fun. So, one night, over dinner, Eric and I were brainstorming characters for my book. He suggests I add a Yeti to my series, and I’m like, no way. Then, I realize the brilliance of his idea. A yeti in treatment for social phobia! Too perfect. My main character will definitely need a larger couch.
