Excerpt: ECHOES by Amy Evans @aammyyss #giveaway


Echoes are the sounds the universe makes when you ignore it the first time.

Instead of signs, they are sirens. Echoes are louder and more dangerous than Clicks.

All the twins on Pinhold Island are healthy again, but the summer is still upside down. Cami's been paying better attention to what hides beneath the surface on her seemingly idyllic home, trying to make sense of the new threats to her friends and family. Massive storms have come to Pinhold, flooding the Island in a way not seen in generations. They leave behind destruction and the Red Tide, which lends the Island an eerie glow, makes the air itch and people's eyes burn. Through it all, Cami and Blake are working hard to repair their relationship, Mica is attempting to trust the grown ups on island, Shay is worried she'll never swim again and everyone is tying to re-focus on the Surf Carnival and training for The Guard.

But the threats to Pinhold from the sky don't compare to the danger that still hides beneath the waves. Can Cami and The Guard find the cause in time to reset the pin, or will they suffer damages that can never be reversed?

Excerpt



Watching Mica playing the guitar,  an uninvited thought popped into my head.   I wished I had gotten a chance to see Kaleb play when he had been here. Just when I’d finally gotten used to him, he’d disappeared again.  I knew he’d had a few concerts booked, it was much less tense between me and Blake now that he had left.  But still. I would have loved to see him here. He used to like the drum circles, and he was a strong current in them, playing guitar and drums equally well.

I shooed away the thought before it lingered long enough to send a signal out, but I could feel Blake clicking into my head, like he had a Google search set up to ping him when Kaleb entered my brain. Maybe he did, or maybe the way I couldn’t get his brother out of my mind echoed between us in a way that would wreck things if I didn’t get myself under control.

I didn’t want Kaleb the way I wanted Blake, not even a little bit. But there was a history of a friendship with Kaleb, an appreciation for him that I’d blocked out these past three years and I had it back now. I was tired of living with anger, and I wanted Blake to forgive him too. As far as I was concerned, he’d earned some respect and gratitude from all of us.  As much as I couldn’t have learned everything about the dolphins and our DNA without Blake, I knew that without Kaleb, I wouldn’t have put all the different pieces together to figure out how to solve the problem and wake everybody up.

I needed them both for different things, but Blake didn’t understand that at all. Even these little thoughts caused a silent rage to simmer below his beautifully calm exterior.  He put every bit of frustration into his drum playing, moving faster and faster, hitting the animal skin with intensity he imagined using on Kaleb’s head.  It should have scared me to see these kinds of twisted thoughts in Blake’s brain, but it didn’t.

I began to mimic his rhythm on the drum in my hand. I wasn’t very good at playing at this speed but seeing into Blake’s brain helped me. I caught his thoughts before thoughts, sounds before sounds. I knew when he intended to move and strike, and so I acted before I could think, and got the sounds out at exactly the same time.  We played in tandem, and his jealousy rubbed off on me in a very random way: I felt jealous of the instrument.

I knew the way his hands would feel if they stroked those patterns over and over again into my skin. And I wanted them on me.

They soared so high so fast they never expected the fall.

Two beautiful souls.
Two seemingly innocent deceptions.

Once they meet, Stevie and Ford explode into one another in a ball of lust, hotter than a July moon. Ford is assertive, dominate and in control, that is until Stevie brings him to his knees. He thinks she’s the most beautiful woman he’s ever met both inside and out. Stevie thinks he’s sweet, and sort of goofy—of course it doesn’t hurt that he drips sex like honey.

Stevie is starting to fall hard for Ford.
And Ford is all in with Stevie.
She wonders if he could ever forgive her for what she’s about to do.
She wonders if she wants him to.

His lie cost her a few sleepless nights.
Her lie will cost him everything.

Cover Reveal: Burying Water by K.A. Tucker @kathleenatucker

Burying Water by K.A. Tucker is an NA Romantic Suspense, releasing October 7!




The top-selling, beloved indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths returns with a new romance about a young woman who loses her memory—and the man who knows that the only way to protect her is to stay away.

Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him?

Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried.

The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.

Book Birthday: THE HORDE WITHOUT END by Nazarea Andrews @NazareaAndrews





Happy book birthday to Nazarea Andrews for The Horde Without End, the sequel to The World Without a Future.

It was supposed to be over…

Returning from Haven 18 was supposed to be the end. But nothing is ever easy—and in a world full of zombies, finding the missing is next to impossible. There are breadcrumbs. Tiny clues. But what are a few tiny clues in a world of the dead?

Nurrin is desperate to find her brother, but that will mean trusting Finn O’Malley. A man shrouded in secrets, who kills as easily as breathing. And the more she learns about him, the more questions she has. But she has learned one thing—the zombies are changing. Adapting. And this time, the Haven walls won’t keep them out.

Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Goodreads

Catch up with The World Without a Future, on sale for .99 NOW!


Chapter 1. Broken Pieces

She hasn’t cried. She doesn’t cry for me—but I know how fragile she is.

I want to break her. I want to push her hard enough to see her shatter. I want to see the shards of her on the ground.

How fucking beautiful would she be, when she put herself back together? She would. Nurrin is too stubborn to do anything but survive.

Nurrin is a first, born to a world of death. She is innocent of the life before the change. She has never known anything but Hale Halls, razor wire, and walls. She has never known she could be anything but a survivor.

I watch the sun rising over the canyon. In another world, people might have exclaimed over the beauty, stared at it in wonder.

To me, the red-washed sky means only one thing: it’s almost time to leave.

I glance over my shoulder. She retreated to the sleeping area a few hours ago, after we fought over leaving immediately. I think there is a part of her that hopes Collin will come back. A supply run wouldn’t be completely unjustified.

My lips twist.

Collin wouldn’t leave the Hole, not unless he had to. Not when he knew that it’s the only place I would take Nurrin. He’s gone because something is wrong.

Cover Reveal: ARTEMIS'S HUNT by Lia Davis @novelsbylia

 
Deception broke her heat. The truth fuels her hunt.

Coming September 2, 2014

Artemis, goddess of the hunt, has lived with heartache for the last fifteen hundred years, believing her only love is dead. That’s what her father—Zeus, king of the gods—told her. After recent events brought the truth to light, Artemis must gather the courage to face her lost love again.

Evangelos, former god of messengers, was content living in the mortal world until he discovered he has a daughter and her mother is Artemis. When the goddess shows up at his place of employment with tales of renewing his god status, he’s skeptical. Zeus wouldn’t reverse the curse out of the goodness of his heart. There is always a catch. The god king wants something in return.

When Artemis explains she has to hunt down her stepmother, Hera, in order to get Evan back into Zeus’s good graces, Evan demands to accompany her. However, the journey turns out to be a test that could bring them closer together or tear them apart forever.


Sons of War series to date
War’s Passion, book 1
Ashes of War, book 2
Artemis’s Hunt, book 2.5

COMMAND ME by Geneva Lee @genevaleeauthor


When he kissed me, I was shocked. He was a stranger and still so familiar. It wasn't until I woke up to my picture splashed on the cover of tabloids that I realized I knew who he was.

Prince Alexander of Cambridge.

Royal bad boy.

Exiled heir to the throne.

He isn't Prince Charming. He's controlling. He's demanding. He's dangerous. And I can't say no to him.

We both have secrets—secrets that could tear us apart or drive us closer together—and as the paparazzi exposes each one, I have to decide just how far I'm willing to go for King and Country.

For readers 18 and up due to mature, erotic scenarios.
