Synopsis
While this closely knit group of six tries to settle into normal; drugs, money, and vengeance leave one man dead and another in jail for a wide range of crimes he did not commit.
Friendships and bonds are tested past the breaking point, allegiances are questioned, and relationships threaten to crumble.  From the point of view of all six characters we've come to love, perspective is offered on the hell that they are all experiencing, the love they've all found, and the sexy, fairytale lives they all wish to get back to.
This is the final book in the Hale Series.
Recommended for readers 18 and up due to strong language and explicit sexual content.
Excerpt
I shake my head clear of those thoughts as I pull into and park in the subterranean garage. I all but jump out of the SUV and sprint to the elevator bank, in a mad rush to get to my penthouse. I’m chastising myself for not grabbing a bottle of wine or a late lunch for us as I unlock the door to the large apartment.
I empty my pockets into the basket on the front entry table. I smile to myself because I know Alexa hates the damn thing. I may actually move it this weekend. Anything to make her happy. I frown as I step further into the apartment and see that the living room and kitchen are empty. I should’ve called her first before just assuming she wouldn’t find something to do, knowing I’d be at work again until late.
I kick off my shoes and scoop them up as I make my way to the bedroom. The door is shut which is odd, but I don’t falter in my steps until I hear a man’s voice, “Fuck, just like that! Suck it deep.”
My hand hesitates on the doorknob, because I know when I swing it open my life is going to change. I teeter on the edge of indecision; my broken heart throbbing painfully in my chest. “I’m close, bitch.” I hear the masculine voice say.
Two things happen at the moment. I’m suddenly angry that Alexa is doing this to me when she thinks I’m at work, but alternately I’m pissed at this man for talking to my woman like that.
Hatred over the cheating wins out and I swing the door wide. My shoes tumble from my hands just as “What the fuck, Alexa,” boils out of my mouth.
She squeaks loudly and tries to pull the sheets over her but it’s too late. She’s already been caught.

Blitz: Forsaken by Rachel Madbury
Buy on AmazonNook


Graciella Snow has no idea what she wants to do with her life. She’s never known. Since her mom left when she was a kid she’s wondered what the point was to pretty much anything. Now that she’s done with college and expected to join the “real world” she knows she’d better figure it out. But first she has to deal with the house she inherited from her late mother. Going to Maine for the summer was the last thing she’d planned on, but after she meets Alexander Cole she begins to question everything she ever thought she knew.
Known in town as something of a recluse Alexander Cole has gotten used to his solitude. He’s poured himself into his work and it’s better this way, even if these small town gossips don’t understand. But when Grace shows up to take care of her mom’s run down beach house he can’t seem to keep his normal distance. She’d be better off if he did, but after all this time, he’s not so sure he can keep up the fight. How can he keep her from finding out who he really is? Can she ever trust a man with a past she might never know?

excerpt 

I’m still looking out the window when suddenly the car jerks to the right. Alexander’s hands slide around the wheel, fighting to bring it under control. I’m flung to the left before suddenly being jolted back by the tightening of the seat belt.

“Shit!!” Alexander yells over the squealing tires. The BMW comes to a screeching halt on the other side of the road, both of us slamming into the seats hard. Just as we stop moving, I see three deer bound through the headlights and into the darkness on the other side of the road.

“Shit. Fuck. Are you ok? Grace? Are you hurt?” He’s panicked, already unbuckling himself and rushing out of the car to my side. He flings open my door and is grabbing me by my shoulders before I can even process what just happened. His hands hold me tight, his long fingers pressing into me. I can see the fear in his pale blue eyes, inches from mine, his breathing coming in hard rasps... Even like this he’s gorgeous.

“Talk to me. Are you hurt?” he yells exasperated, the concern painted on his face.

“I’m fine,” I squeak out, unsure if I really am, but pretty sure. Studying me, he takes my face in his hands, gently holding me while he searches from one eye to the other, not believing me. His thumb brushes across my lip reverently before he pulls away.

“Are you sure? Do you want me to take you to the hospital? It’s only a few minutes away, maybe we should have you looked at…” He trails off about to run back around to the wheel but I grab his sleeve. He stops and looks down at my hand. His face changes from one of terror to something else, and I look up at him from my seat, still buckled in. He places his other hand over mine and closes his eyes. We’re both shaking, the place where our skin touches tingles with electricity. I can’t breathe. It’s as if we’re conduits for a current that’s holding us in place, a charged field expanding around us. When he opens his eyes, they lock on mine, a smoldering glare flickering behind his fear. He pulls his arm away from me and steps back but he doesn’t move farther. I swallow hard, regaining my voice.

“I’m fine, Alexander. Really. I’m fine. Look at me. I’m okay.” I hold out my hands and pat down my upper body, proving that I’m still in one piece. He watches closely, surveying me. Finally with an exhale he rubs his hands down his face pausing as they meet at his chin and then starts for the driver’s seat.

Excerpt Reveal ~ The Wrath of Cain by Kathy Coopmans‏






Excerpt 
“Have you ever been spanked?”

I cock my head and glare at Cain, who is standing on the threshold of the bedroom. I’m sitting cross-legged on the bed finishing up with my list. I glance at it one more time before I answer him to make sure I have all my sizes down. There’s a big star next to the lingerie shop in Birmingham Hills that I know carries my favorite bras. I stick the pen behind my ear out of habit.

“Are you cross examining me?”

“Cut the smart ass lawyer bullshit. I thought I made myself clear when I told you to respect me in front of others. It’s a shame Bronzer is one of the cool guys and doesn’t treat his wife like shit, because I want nothing better than to turn you over my knee and crack that ass.”

I grind my teeth and shake my head at this fool.

“Look, respect goes both ways. I apologize. Give me a break, would you? I mean, how was I supposed to know you would be having some man meeting in the middle of your kitchen early in the morning?”

“You didn’t, and that’s on me, but you prancing around with nothing covering your ass in front of my buddies really pisses me off.”

His muscles are tense as I stand and approach him.

“Whatever.” I wave him off.

“Goddamnit. I don’t care if it’s the pope who’s in this house. I do not want anyone else seeing what’s mine.”

Now it’s my turn to shout. I’m livid as hell.

“Don’t you dare raise your voice at me! I didn’t do a damn thing wrong. It’s you. All of it is you! The way I see it, this t-shirt covers more of my body than the clothes some of those women had on last night at that party. And I am not yours. I can show my ass to whomever I want.”

“Fuck. You are so stubborn. Those women’s asses weren’t hanging out. I’m having Priscilla buy a gunny sack, granny panties, and a damn muzzle for your mouth.”

I roll my eyes.

“Yeah, good luck with that one, buddy. You’d be better off spanking me.”

 “Oh, you’re going to get spanked, all right.”

“Ha! We’ll see about that,” I sneer.

“We sure the hell will!”


Watch the Wrath unfold!  Clubs. Mafia. Drugs. Murder. And the man they all know as Scarface, will leave you guessing in
book one of this brand new series... http://bit.ly/1iv0qMz

At least that’s what he’s been telling himself for the past six years.

People are not who they seem.

Not even Cain’s dad or Calla’s parents are who they say they are. When Calla shows up begging for a divorce. He shows her exactly who he is and no way in hell will he sign those papers.

What happens when six years later she returns? The only woman he has loved. A woman who has changed herself! When all the lies surface will she be able to forgive everyone she has trusted in her life or will Calla turn to the man who destroyed her?

REVIEW ~ FIVE STARS ~ The Pleasure Palace (Secrets of the Tudor Court #1) by Kate Emerson

The Pleasure Palace (Secrets of the Tudor Court, #1)The Pleasure Palace (Secrets of the Tudor Court #1)
by Kate Emerson

Beautiful. Seductive. Innocent. Jane Popyncourt was brought to the court as a child to be ward of the king and a companion to his daughters -- the princesses Margaret and Mary. With no money of her own, Jane could not hope for a powerful marriage, or perhaps even marriage at all. But as she grows into a lovely young woman, she still receives flattering attention from the virile young men flocking to serve the handsome new king, Henry VIII, who has recently married Catherine of Aragon. Then a dashing French prisoner of war, cousin to the king of France, is brought to London, and Jane finds she cannot help giving some of her heart -- and more -- to a man she can never marry. But the Tudor court is filled with dangers as well as seductions, and there are mysteries surrounding Jane's birth that have made her deadly enemies. Can she cultivate her beauty and her amorous wiles to guide her along a perilous path and bring her at last to happiness? Basing her gripping tale on the life of the real Jane Popyncourt, gifted author Kate Emerson brings the Tudor monarchs, their family, and their courtiers to brilliant life in this vibrant new novel.






MY REVIEW
I found this book in the bargain section of my local Canadian bookstore ... less than $5!!!
I love historical fiction ... so this was a great deal!

I love how clever and creative Kate Emerson is bringing to life characters from the past.
I really appreciated the end of the book where Kate Emerson fills you in on where and how she embellished/created and/or took liberties ...including using more modern English ...the later did not distract the reader, i felt it was flawless) 
I loved this story!

Synopsis

It seems the things worth keeping are often the hardest to hold...
KAI
I had two things in life that mattered. My mother and my music. Mama was taken from me too soon, and now music is all I have left. It’s the thing that’s pushed me right out of backwoods Georgia into Los Angeles, where the line between fantasy and reality shimmers and blurs. I’m finally making my way, making my mark. I can’t afford to fall for one of music's brightest stars. Not now. Music is all I have left, and I’m holding on tight with both hands. I won’t let go, not even for Rhyson Gray.
RHYSON
I had one thing in my life that mattered – music. The only constant, it’s taken me to heights most people only dream about; a gift dropped in my lap at birth. I thought it was enough. I thought it was everything until I met Kai. Now she’s all I think about, like a song I can't get out of my head. If I have to chase her, if I have to give up everything - I will. And once she's mine, I won't let go.

COVER REVEAL ~ THE VANISHING THRONE by Elizabeth May

THE VANISHING THRONE is book two and it comes out June 7th, 2016.

Isn’t it beautiful?
Here is the description:
The second book in the Falconer trilogy is packed with surprises and suspense. Aileana Cameron, the Falconer, disappeared through the portal that she was trying to close forever. Now she wakes up in the fae world, trapped and tortured by the evil Lonnrach. With the help of an unexpected ally, Aileana re-enters the human world, only to find everything irrevocably changed. Edinburgh has been destroyed, and the few human survivors are living in an uneasy truce with the fae, while both worlds are in danger of disappearing altogether. Aileana holds the key to saving both worlds, but in order to do so she must awaken her latent Falconer powers. And the price of doing that might be her life. Rich with imaginative detail, action, fae lore, and romance, The Vanishing Throne is a thrilling sequel to The Falconer.
You can Pre Order it now!

And wherever books are sold!

Elizabeth May (c) Elizabeth MayElizabeth is also very thrilled about this cover, as she should be. 
She had this to say:
  “I am absolutely in love with this cover. I recognize the challenge Chronicle’s team had in designing the packaging for this book. Not only did they have to come up with something that matched the striking cover for The Falconer, but one that reflected the massive way Aileana’s story has changed in The Vanishing Throne. They went above and beyond my expectations here. Every part shows an exquisite attention to the book’s details: from the ruins peeking out in the background to Aileana’s vivid ginger curls, beautiful sword and battered clothes (a contrast to the cleanly laced up bodice on The Falconer’s cover). The two covers match, and yet they’re starkly different — much in the way the two books are. I hope readers adore it every bit as much as I do.”—Elizabeth May
To celebrate the reveal of THE VANISHING THRONE, 
I’m giving away a copy of the amazing THE FALCONER plus a complete signed set of The Dark Elements
