I have to say I'm sorry to my readers. I haven't been blogging as much as I should. First it was my laptop's hard drive crashing, being sick, and now this week I finish packing because I'll be moving the first weekend of November. So again, I'm sorry. I promise to blog more after my move and especially because I have special blog posts coming for the Christmas season. I'll talk you ya'll soon. Till then...Slán. (That's goodbye in Irish.)

COVER REVEAL: Siren's Song by Mary Weber

About the Book

Nym and Draewulf prepare to face off in a battle destined to destroy more lives than it saves.

With the loss of Tulla still fresh in mind, Rasha’s fate unknown, and Lord Myles taken over by the dark ability, Nym and the few Bron soldiers rush to warn Cashlin’s queen. Only to discover it may already be too late for the monarch and her eerie kingdom. As the Luminescents are sifting through Nym’s past memories and the queen is reading into her future, Nym is given a choice of how to defeat Draewulf, but the cost may be more than she can bear. And even then there are no guarantees.

With that reality burrowing into her bones—along with the guilt of the lives she will sacrifice—Nym returns to her homeland of Faelen to raise an army of peasants through promises of freedom. But when the few friends she has left, along with the world and citizens she loves, are staring down the face of a monster and his undead army, will Nym summon every element her blood is capable of controlling . . . or surrender to a different strength—one of sacrifice?

Because in the end, death may be more merciful for them all.

COVER REVEAL: While You're Awake by Amber Stokes

About the Book

Sweet New Adult Contemporary Romance Novelette

There’s no rest for the fearful.

Ava always knew the bees would come. Just when she’s settled into a place of her own, freelance editing and savoring her independence, her rental house is invaded by a swarm of honey bees. And with their arrival, her lifelong fear morphs into a full-fledged panic that steals her sleep—and her peace of mind.

Keegan knows all about fear. When he meets Ava at the coffee shop where he works, he can’t help but come to her rescue. Together with his German shepherds, Sun and Moon, he sets out to break the “curse” that hovers over Tired Girl. But is it possible to conquer nightmares and live a dream while you're awake?

This sweet novelette is a contemporary re-imagining of the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale that sheds light on the worries that bind us and the love that leads to peace.

REVIEW: A Reluctant Assassin by J.C. Morrows

About the Book

Her mission was simple — get close to the Prince, and kill him. . . 

Kayden entered the palace under a lie, one designed to get her close to the Prince. On the outside, she may look like a princess but beneath the mask, a killer lays in wait — for the perfect moment.

Dvarius was not ready to take the crown, nor was he ready for a wife . . . but due to his father’s unexpected death and an archaic law — he must find a bride before he is allowed to take his rightful place on the throne.

And the one woman he wants — just might be the one who is there to kill him...


The first thing I fell in love with about this book was the cover. And then I read the synopsis, I knew this book would exceed my expectations. YA, Fantasy, Steampunk, Speculative are all genres right up my alley. In fact, they're some of my most read genres next to Historical fiction and Historical Romance. A female assassin who's sent to kill the Prince, but may be falling in love with him instead. C'mon, that's a book I want to read. J.C. really knows how to weave a tale that keeps you on the edge of your seat and wanting more even after you've finished the last page. The ending was very satisfying, but Book #2 is going on my #needitinmyhandsrightnow list. Oh, and the Prince is totally my new book boyfriend. If you like stories with assassins, princes, and romance all with a steampunk element then I would suggest picking up this book now.
