Publication date: February 28th 2015
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

A Love and War stand Alone

These DO NOT NEED to be read in any order

I crashed and opened my eyes . . . there you were, fierce and protective, and I knew . . . I just knew it was you all along.
Ex-Marine Trent Reed has been shot at, in a coma, and placed in war zones, but when his best friend calls in a favor, he is faced with the most dangerous situation yet—to be the best man. Trent’s turbulent past with races other than his own taints his view on the interracial marriage, and he’s none too happy to deal with the ill-tempered maid of honor. To accept the position means understanding that his friend is soon to be out of his life—for good.
Tough-girl Teal Lofton has struggled all of her adult life, from her weight to the color of her skin holding her back in work and love. When she agrees to be the maid of honor in her friend’s wedding, a hormonal bride and a jerk of a best man who she is strangely, yet wildly, attracted to, amplify those struggles.
As tensions and tempers rise, Trent disappears with the wedding rings and Teal braves a snowstorm to bring them back, determined to fix yet another problem. But a tragic accident brings together the unlikely pair, forcing them to face the prejudices of their pasts. In doing so, Trent and Teal embark on an inevitable course of self-discovery and passion like they’ve never experienced before—until a secret from Trent’s past threatens to destroy it all.

A Teaser:

The boxers were really going at it. The taller of the two was a girl who Chase knew all too well. Leah Grenadine.
Better known by her call sign, Sylph.
Sylph’s thick blond braid whipped like a stinging tail with each punch she threw. Her toned arms were scaled with sweat, but she showed no sign of tiring, which sucked because she was simply destroying the other fighter. He was also all too familiar.
Asian American. Adorable. Tanner Won.
Chase found herself swearing on a loop. Not again.
One of Tanner’s eyes was swollen, and his shoulders folded in to protect his chest. Sylph slammed him over and over until he fell to his knees, coughing for breath. She adjusted her gloves like she had a few more rounds left in her, and Chase ducked under the rope and stood between them.

 (Edge Episode One: Season One )
by Jamie Magee
Publication date: August 18th 2014
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal

Reveca Beauregard had long ago been dubbed the Queen of Darkness by the dead. To the living she was known as the Pentacle Daughter, the only acknowledged female member of the Pentacle Sons MC, the most lethal biker correlation known to exist. She was rumored to be a witch. That rumor, of course, was true.
New Orleans was her home, at the Beauregard Boneyard, the safe haven the Club resided within. Only those in the inner circle were as Reveca was—immortal. To be as such you had to choose the life, and the life had to choose you. For either to occur, death came first.
Those deaths came from wars the Sons fought with both the mortal and immortal worlds, as they bent the decrees of the modern lawmen and the paranormal world at large who had no hope of opposing the dark splendor of their vengeance.
Presently, the mysterious murder of a mortal coupled with the cold-blooded slaying of Reveca’s close friend has led the lawmen to place their corrupt accusations upon the Sons. A forced barter with a Lord of Death has landed the Club with a soul that is set to rock the foundation the Sons as a whole stand upon.

**BOOK BLITZ** Underneath it all by Cassandra Carr




Underneath It All
by Cassandra Carr
Genre: Sports Romance


Professional hockey player Rob D'Amico is confused when he's chosen to take part in a reading program for inner-city students. While athletes are role models, he tends toward the gregarious and playful side, rather than a studious bent. 


Despite the lack of funding plaguing her inner-city district, every day kindergarten teacher Alaina Rossa ensures her students learn something to prepare them for life. At first she's unsure how a hockey player will help her achieve that goal. 

When Rob visits Alaina's class for the first time, they welcome him with open arms, despite the lack of even the basic supplies for their education. He takes it upon himself to get the students what they need, sweeping Alaina up in the excitement. 

As time goes by and she learns more about Rob, Alaina finds her heart opening to him. Is it possible her soul mate could be found in a world so different from her own? And for Rob, the last person he thought he'd find forever love with was an elementary school teacher wearing clothes permanently stained with finger paint. But when you're playing for keeps, sometimes you have to get a little dirty.

**COVER REVEAL** Broken Blood by Heather Hildenbrand




How do you defeat an enemy that knows your every thought … even as you think it?


I thought watching my Werewolf boyfriend get arrested for murder was the worst experience of my life. But then I was knocked out and dragged off to a cell of my own by the very people who were supposed to protect me from danger.
I thought being held prisoner in solitary confinement for weeks on end was the worst experience of my life. But then a visitor came, and I realized I’d been wrong all along. There are worse things than torture and death. Much worse.

He wants my blood. More than that, he wants to get into my head. To use my bond to control his army, to wipe the world clean of anything with dirty blood. I can’t let that happen, but if I don’t he’ll kill every single person I’ve ever cared about—beginning with my Werewolf pack.

The prophecy said I would have to make an impossible choice, but I must be doing this wrong—so far every choice I’ve made has only led to more pain and danger and death. Hunters are pitted against Werewolves and I’m alone in my war against Gordon Steppe. I can’t fight him off anymore; all I can do is try to keep him out of the important places. And I’m failing at even that.
I thought the demons were out there, clearly marked and clinging to the shadows. But they’re not. The monsters are within the ranks of those sworn to protect. The enemy is among us.

COLD BLOOD (Dirty Blood #2)


Sometimes Family Can be the Death of You

Wood Point Academy is not at all what I expected.
For one thing, it looks like a cross between military school and Buckingham Palace. Everyone stares, the floors shine so bright you can see your reflection in them from a mile away, and no one smiles.

At least I’ve got plenty to take my mind off the fact that my psycho cousin, Miles De’Luca, keeps calling and declaring his love and promising to come for me just as soon as he’s destroyed anyone standing in our way. Wes isn’t going to like that idea. So between Miles, Wood Point’s evil welcoming committee, and the drill sergeant hottie trainer from hell, I just keep asking myself, how did I end up here?

Enemies to Lovers Blog Tour!





It’s a fine line between love and hate, and these heroines know that first hand! Here to give us their two cents on turning an enemy to a lover are Isabella St. Vincent (Wicked, My Love by Susanna Ives), Eliza May (Soulbound by Kristen Callihan), Sadie Pemberton (Vampires Never Cry Wolf by Sara Humphreys), and Mina Duvall, the Duchess of Casavian (Of Silk and Steam by Bec McMaster).


Isabella St. Vincent (Wicked, My Love)



I admit that I’ve been jealous of Randall since we were children.  He was beautiful, charming, and everyone adored him.  Whenever I was around him, I felt even more odd and clumsy.  I hated him for that. Isn’t it terrible to loathe someone just because they make you feel less about yourself?  It wasn’t until I was twenty-nine that I learned he was jealous of me too.  Me! Imagine.  (laughs)  I realized that behind that handsome shell of charm and silvery words, he was a vulnerable as me.  And a great kisser.



Eliza May (Soulbound)



I thought seeing Adam naked and chained to a wall would be a glorious vindication for past insults, but in truth I only wanted to free him and take away his pain. Then there was the unfortunate matter that, every time he teases me, I rather want to shut his lovely lips. With my mouth.



Sadie Pemberton (Vampires Never Cry Wolf)


There's a fine line between hate and lust. Let's just say it took me a little while to figure out my hatred wasn't hate at all but fang-humming need and desire rolled into one. I think the moment I first realized that I wanted Killian under me, instead of six feet under, was that night at The Coven a couple months ago. When I escorted Killian and his pack to the VIP table in the club, instead of slipping into the booth like he usually did, he....lingered. It was the first time I allowed his body get within a foot of mine...but definitely not the last.



Mina Duvall, the Duchess of Casavian
 (Of Silk and Steam)


 Leo Barrons has been pursuing me for an age, despite the fact that his father murdered mine. However, it wasn't until he demanded a kiss - and more - in exchange for his help in a dangerous plot that matters began to change between us. Discovering a secret about Leo that could ruin his father - and him - only served to heighten the feelings, especially when he placed his fate in my hands. I finally had a weapon against his father, but only if I utterly destroyed Leo first. Bearing the burden of that decision was the hardest struggle I've ever had, forcing me to contemplate what manner of man he truly was.
