B785 - Cyborgs: More Than Machines
Coming April 11th, 2013 Genre:Science Fiction / Futuristic / Cyborg Romance

When cyborg intelligence meets sensual robotics, circuit boards sizzle.
Einstein was probably the only cyborg in existence with no interest in the opposite sex, until he discovered B785. With her sensual nature and quirky sense of humor, she draws this cybernetic geek out of his scientific shell and teaches him the one thing he’s never understood – passion. Tired of being a slave to the military, Bonnie went to sleep one day with the intention of never waking up, but she didn’t count on a cybernetic prince charming bringing her back to life. Coming to terms with her past isn’t easy, but harder still is the realization that even a bionic princess can fall in love. However, all fairy tales have a villain, and despite the fact the military wrote them both off as a loss, they soon discover they’ll need to fight to have their happily ever after.

Coming April 11th, 2013 Coming March 29th, 2013

Mated To The Devil
Genre: Paranormal/Werewolf/Interracial Romance

Not all pleasures are a sin...
Mina wants to put her seduction by a golden-eyed devil behind her, but the birth of her son, Jacques, renders that impossible. She tries to forget the only man who ever roused her passion, but when she notices her son exhibiting strange behavior—and less-than-human characteristics—she must face her past and learn to trust, and love, again. Howling drunk, the one thing Remy clearly remembers is seducing Mina. A pity he didn’t think to get her address, especially since he marks her as his mate. When she disappears, he’s got plenty of time to regret, but he doesn’t get a chance to atone until she comes back into his life with an unexpected surprise. Thrust into the role of father, Remy works to bond with his son while gaining forgiveness. But will he get the chance to truly make Mina his mate before danger threatens their fragile happiness?

arch again, the months go by quick. Time to leave the cold months and head over to spring. March was full with exiting releases like the last book by J.R.

SOUL AVENGED (SONS OF WRATH, #1) BY KERI LAKE

simelarities of the werewolf and the vamp it is hard to think different. Neverless an enjoyable read. Keri Lake has made from Ayden a fantastic main character. I really loved her. Ayden happy world ended abrupt on the day that Lycans killed her family. She made the choise by errasing the memoties of her previous life. The life before the attack. Now she is this fierce, kick-ass slayer with a smart mouth and slim body in a tight outfit, who know exactly what she wants. And with the good looking Demons, The Sons of Wrath in her service it’s just makes it more exciting to read about. Each Demon has its own character, flaws and looks with differences that you don’t need to read the name to know about who your reading. With as extra the leader of the Demons Devin who can cause a lot of tension in the story. Hot tension! I don’t want to spoil to much, but by bringing in the just turned fresh werewolf Kane in the nest of the Demons she doesn’t make herself very populair! The minor point of the story was the hate Ayden felt for Kane was a little on the heavy side. She hated him because he is a Lycan and it reminded her to much of the killing of her family. And because it

I don’t know if the next book will be about Ayden again or that each book will be about a other Demon Brother. But all I know I will put it on my to -read list. And if your a Urban fantasy lover, I think you should do it too.

THE KEEPER OF THE KEY BY DEBRA SMITH

Of course Kate had other feelings about that and will do anything to change that. I specially liked the character Kate. Debra did a fantastic job creating her. Kate is strong woman especially with all the events and her husband’s recent death. The only thing I coult think of that would make it more intersting to read about if Kate would have taken a little bit more of time to get back together with Xander again. She just had to keep him work for it a little longer to make it perfect

Book cover: THE KEEPER OF THE KEY BY DEBRA SMITH

The Keeper of the Key is a great paranormal romance full with your favorite paranormal beings like vampires and werewolves.
This story starts with Kate a strong woman that owner a book store who received a letter from her deceived

husband that send her out on a mission to find Shangri La. She follows the clues her husband left her in the letter and finds herself in the hands of the seductive vampire Xander. Although the romance is high and the sex hot, Xander is scared he will drain her so he decided that he will continue to search with Kate but has to but a hold on their romance.

The Keeper of the Key is a thrilling story full of romance, snarky comments and a kick-ass woman who knows exactly what she wants. I can’t wait to read more about Kate or from Debra Smith! I recommend this book to al paranormal romance fans. Rating: 4 of 5 stars

BIG BAD BITE BY JESSIE LANE
A group of extremist Shifters who think humans are cattle are causing trouble in paradise. Jenna has to find a way to shut them down, but in the process of trying to do that, discovers things about herself that even she never thought was possible. I don’t want to spoil to much! You just have to read Big Bad Bite yourself! I have checked if I could find the parts where Crystal Leo started or ended and Melissa Pahl began. But I coudnt find it! only some parts where the alinea’s where bigger for a few pages than others. But noting in writing! They recently decided to do a cover makeover. Above you will find the new cover. More mature that the previous one. And they have a new editor who changed a few tiny bits like info dumps that were cut down and the girls added a tiny scene to this book! I have to warn you Book #2 of the Big Bad Bite Series, Walk On The Striped Side is scheduled to be released late 2013/ beginning of 2014! That is a long wait for your fix with this new addicting series

As much as her brain tells her that pushing him away is exactly what she should do, the rest of her body isn’t getting the message. No, her traitorous body is craving the same kind of explosive sex that the song is still droning on about in the background. Adam’s warm breath fans her face as he leans over until their lips are just skimming the others. He growls. “I’ve wanted to do this since the moment I saw you pointing that gun at me.”

Angelfire is about a place on each that is out of reach for mortals beacuase of kind of shield that makes people turn around and never find out this strange place. Ruled by the Elders living by The Code: obey your Elders, kill all demons, eliminate Rogueangels, protect the mortals, remain hidden.

Together with their enemies, the romance and a third man named Jordan.

ANGELFIRE (DARK ANGEL #1) BY HANNA PEACH

ALYX IS A YOUNG SMART WOMAN WITH SPECIAL BLOOD TATTOOS AND SHE IS READY TO KICK SOME ASS. MEET THIS FANTASTIC NEW PARANORMAL SERIES FROM HANNA PEACH!
Angelfire is the first installment of the Dark Angel series written by Hanna Peach. I am still figuring out if this is an adult paranormal

/ urban fantasy or YA. Although there was a tiny romance scene, I still had to use my imagine about what happens in that night between the main characters Alyx and Isreal. But first things first. Hanna Peach has done a fantastic job writting this first installment. The world building is fenominal, its like entering a new world. Angelfire kind of reminded me somhow of the Guardians of Ascension Series by Caris Roane with a strange mix of the movie “the game”. Paranormal beings, a kick-ass heroine, action and games. What more can you wish for!

Of course there where some parts where I thought the romance could have come a little bit more in the beginning of the book, maybe when she was having her visions or was dreaming about Israel. And there where some dictionary parts/ explaining some of terms from the book at the beginning of a chapter that interrupted to much

and therefor pulled me out of the story. Overall I enjoyed this book. Is a great read for the YA fans. There is lots of action and when you least expecting it, Hanna gives it an extra notch that keeps you suspended till the end. Let me know what you think of this book!

“You’re being here is no coincidence, is it?” His eyes narrow. “What are you?” “What a silly question,” Alyx says, trying not to let her panic show. “I’m a mortal just like you.” He grins. Alyx feels like an animal that has just been caught in a trap. “Firstly,” he says, “ a real mortal would never call herself a ‘mortal’. And secondly, real mortals don’t come falling out of the sky to land delicately on the ground. No, real mortals break bones doing things like that,” he says this last sentence in a mock hush as if he was revealing some great secret. “Just keep that in mind when you try to pass yourself off as one of us next time.”

Posted: 04 MAR 2013 Zayne stared out the window in the back seat of the Range Rover, listening to Zeke sucker the female he’d picked up into wearing the blindfold. Gavin’s rule. All female bar-strays had to wear one on the ride to and from the mansion. Too many breeds—demon, Alexi, lycan—would have killed to be privy to their whereabouts. “I don’t like not knowing where I’m going,” the female argued from the passenger seat.

“Baby, it’s not my rule. It’s my brother’s and he’d kill me if I defied him.” Zayne rolled his eyes at the plea in his brother’s voice. A leather skirt and stilettos never failed to pussy-whip. The click of the door signaled her sudden retreat and Zayne’s attention swung forward. Zeke reached across the space between the two chairs. “Wait!” He pulled her back to him and whispered something in her ear. The woman’s shoulder rolled back and a giggle followed. Dimples formed in Zeke’s cheek as he spoke. “Okay.” That annoying trill to her tone grated on Zayne’s nerves. The buzz of the alcohol he’d consumed had begun to dull in these moments of ‘he begged, she begged’. He’d need something else quick or risk being dropped back into his reality. “Get on with this.” The woman’s eyes met his as she gave a demure glance back. A flash of blue flickered in them and Zayne’s muscles stiffened. What the hell … He fought through the lingering drunkenness to make sense of what he’d just seen. Human? She seemed to be—everything he’d read inside of her at the bar told him she was. Shitty thing about being a soul reader—nobody’s secrets were safe with Zayne. It’s why his twin brother, Zeke, always dragged him along on the bar runs. Sure as fuck wasn’t for Zayne’s company— since Shey’s death he’d come to loathe socializing, always in search of his next trip to crunkedville. Had he missed something in this female? His eyes locked on her. She turned back around in her seat and leaned to the side, allowing Zeke to secure the blindfold. The eyes held the secrets of the soul and in one good stare, Zayne could get spill-happy if he wanted. All he’d found earlier the female was some guilt from a drunken one-night stand she’d had two weeks ago, the usual nasty

remarks between family and friends over the years, and her first time smoking weed—a discovery that had actually won her some clout in Zayne’s eyes. After tuning the radio to some stab-me-in-the-eyeballs-with-a-toothpick R&B, Zeke fired up the Rover and pulled forward out of the parking lot. Zeke listened to the shit whenever he wanted to preheat the ladies for the night ahead. Zayne glanced behind through the back window. Could it have been flicker of headlights he’d seen? Just seemed stronger. Like the blue of flames dancing in her eyes. “Would’ve been nice for Amber to have someone to talk to.” Zeke peered at him through the rear-view mirror. “Might’ve put her at ease, right beautiful?” He shifted his gaze toward the female. “Actually,”—she threw her blindfolded head to the side—“I wouldn’t mind having both of you for myself.” Zeke snorted. “I’m sure you would. Too bad my brother’s a lame ass these days.” Yeah, always the same bullshit. A nice trip down fuck-my-life avenue every time he left the bar without a female. Problem was, no female could ever come close to his fallen mate, Shey. And why should he force himself? Not like a bastard ever died from abstinence. The city passed by in long streaks of reds and whites. Zayne had pounded shots of Elysia—one of the strongest liquors in the demon realm. Though why the hell it had any association with paradise, he couldn’t figure out. “Pull off.” Zeke’s eyes appeared in the rearview mirror again. “What? Are you shitting me?” “Do it.” “Fuck man, I told you to stay away from that stuff.” The vehicle jerked across lanes to the shoulder of the road. Streets were empty at that hour, including the highway. “What’s … what are we doing? Where are we?” The woman’s voice carried an edge of urgency. “Why did we stop?” “My brother can’t handle his liquor,” Zayne heard Zeke say as he climbed out of the back seat and opened the door to the humid summer air. He punched Zeke’s shoulder on the way and slammed the door behind him. It may have been the Elysia tickling his stomach, but Zayne had a feeling it was his senses blowing up like an alarm, teasing his oh-shit sensors the way they did when something just didn’t feel right. As he leaned against the car, clutching his stomach, muffled voices rose from inside the vehicle. Zayne concentrated on them and could hear Zeke trying to calm the female. Her voice battled back until it came into a crisp pitch at the same time the passenger door flew open. Zayne straightened.

“What are you trying to pull here?” She’d removed her blindfold and stalked toward him—slow-like . The blue flames returned to her otherwise brown eyes and danced like rattlesnakes. Green scales popped up through her skin while horns protruded from her head. You gotta be fucking kidding me. Zeke had circled around the other side of the vehicle and sidled up beside him. “Of all the fucking females in the place, you had to pick up a Dzafolite dragon?” Zayne asked. “You’re the goddamn soul reader, you didn’t happen to see a big, green fucking monster somewhere in that shit?” Zayne turned only a second to cast a glare toward his brother, then fixed his gaze back on the transforming mess in front of them. Her eyes had bulged like a cartoon figure, black orbs too big for their sockets clinging to whatever kept them anchored to her head. Her body was covered in those scales and a long, red forked tongue slithered past her lips. In a matter of seconds, her size had doubled, black skirt in tatters on the road. Haunch claws burst through the dainty stilettos. Backing along the highway, side-by-side, Zeke grabbed himself. “Jesus, Zayne. This bitch is going to make me piss myself.” “I hope she goes after you first. Asshole.” In the demon realm, only two things could tighten a demon’s nuts—the torture prison, also known as Obsidius, and a Dzafolite dragon. A roar signaled the last burst of her change, and the cue to run like the motherfuckin’ wind. Both brothers spun on their heels and took off down the empty highway. Like landmines exploding behind them, the sound of destruction trailed their steps. “I got a plan,” Zayne said, on a short pant of breath. “Sharp left.” “Over the wall?” “Yeah, you’re going to lead her away. “Like some kind of dangling carrot? Fuck that. You’re not using me as bait this time.” Thuds pounded toward them, getting closer. Zayne chanced a quick glance behind to see concrete broken in the dragon’s wake. She bounded toward them like a lizard after a snake buffet “Sharp left. Now!” Both brothers leapt against the concrete wall, about ten feet in height. They grabbed hold of the top and scaled like their lives depended on it. Hell, it did. Zeke pulled himself over the top first, twisted to a kneel and yanked Zayne upward. Heat licked Zayne’s ass as cinders flew over his head. “Ah shit!” He patted the flames that’d caught on to his leathers. Dragon’s fire. Brown claws gripped the edge seconds before those black orbs peered over.

From our authors
“Get up!” Zayne yanked his brother’s arm and they pushed to a dead run toward a shitty-looking neighborhood with half-burnt houses like it’d been in a war. “Run that way then round back behind the houses! Toward the factory! Don’t stop.” Zeke gave a nod and zipped off in the opposite direction as the two separated. The earth rumbled and faded the faster Zayne ran—the dragon had clearly gone after Zeke. He pulled the small chunk of chalk that most demons carried from his inner pocket. Like a nickel for a phone booth. At the end of the block, he reached the abandoned factory, run down and covered in graffiti. Perfect. In the darkness, weaved carefully between the gang art, Zayne drew a large circle. He placed his hands in the center of it, dropped his head and spoke an ancient chant. The circle shifted, undulating like waves. A blast of heat hit his face and he wiped the instant perspiration that’d formed on his cheek. The portal to the underworld.

Paranormal Cravings

Renhala
Kailey Rooke, timid accountant, dedicated to philanthropic work, finds herself spiraling into a deep depression after she suffers a horrifyingly odd and humiliating assault, to only discover more of these freakish assaults occurring across the globe. A chance discovery leads Kailey to a meeting with elderly Gunthreon, actual master of persuasion. Gunthreon, who seems to know too much of Kailey’s history for her liking, opens Kailey’s eyes to a coexisting realm she never knew existed: Renhala, while entrusting her with the knowledge of her newfound power as karmelean, serving as a beacon to the Higher Ones. Kailey slowly starts revealing new talents, and Gunthreon is fascinated with what she starts achieving. She soon discovers that Renhala is in danger, and this danger has been leaking into her own realm. As she uncovers secrets within herself, and attempts to toughen up, she fuses with an unlikely band of fellow travelers (including a dragon, woodsprite, sixhundred-pound greble, her faithful female canine companion, and a “giver”), falls into an unexpected love triangle, deals with her sexy and flirtatious best friend’s “issues,” and finds the courage to master a new deadly weapon.

Renhala

Amy Joy Lutchen Series: Renhala #1 Publication: September 27th 2012 Genre: Adult Fantasy Renhala, will be on an upcoming tour May 13-18th with Xpresso Reads. http://www.xpressobooktours. com/2013/03/tour-sign-up-renhala-byamy-joy-lutchen.html Renhala will be coming to print by early May, AND the second book of the series will be out within the next four months.

On her mission to save Renhala, Kailey will find herself running from life-threatening disasters, such as greble Tartarin, who likes to remind Kailey that when he catches her, he plans on eating her brains with ice cream; she’ll run from the deadly meeples: small cute bunnies with talons and an undeniable thirst for imposing self-destruction on others. Kailey will also run into the possibility that a centuries-old Renhalan rumor is true, that advanced technology existing in Kailey’s realm shortens all life spans. As blood is shed and puzzles near completion, Kailey pulls from deep within herself, conjuring up mystical qualities that enable her to astonish as once predicted at her birth, but despite the newfound strength, Kailey will discover that monsters not only come in ugly packages, but can be easily disguised as those she has come to love and trust.Renhala is currently on sale for .99 !!

Certainly & Vika from

This Wicked Magic by Michele hauf
- RTBookReviews Top Pick! Certainly Jones has pushed his dark magic too far this time. Gnawing and clawing at his soul are the demons he unknowingly carried back from his quest into Daemonia. Weak and exhausted, the dark witch gazes down the dim, cobbled street at his only hope—a striking woman illuminated by the moonlight Vika St. Charles senses CJ before she sees him. The good witch with emerald eyes and fiery red hair has never dabbled in dark magic. But one look at CJ turns her life upside down. Soon Vika is lured into his dangerous world...and his powerful arms. A few sultry kisses are not enough to save CJ from his demons—it’s going to take some seriously potent sorcery. And some Wicked Magic.

Michele has been writing romance, action-adventure and fantasy stories for over nineteen years. France, musketeers, vampires and faeries populate her stories. And if she followed the adage ‘write what you know’, all her stories would have snow in them. Fortunately, she steps beyond her comfort zone and writes about countries she has never visited and of creatures she has never seen. Michele blogs all over the internet.
