Cover Reveal: Fire of Stars and Dragons

By Melissa A. Petreshock


New Adult Romance
Releasing April 2014
Publisher: Swoon Romance
Following the death of her vampire uncle, twenty-one-year-old CAITRIONA HAYDEN finds herself in the midst of a trio of quintessential alpha male suitors in 22nd century sovereign America where human females should be seen and not heard.   Theo Pendragon claims her as his ward, ordained to guard her through to a long-awaited destiny unbeknownst to Cait, but finds more than he expected when passion ignites within the dragon for the first time. Always drawn to the pursuit of knowledge rather than the heat of desire, powerful demigod Dante cannot deny everything his future holds in Caitriona. America's monarch, ancient vampire Corrin, has no interest in the frivolity of love, yet marrying Cait could be the answer to his continued survival.   Soon, Cait goes from studying for college exams to choosing a husband in seven days, knowing the consequences are eternal, the love undying, and the bond timeless.

Blog Tour: Concealed by Victoria Michaels + Giveaway


Hidden 1

Author: Victoria Michaels
Pages: 242 pgs
Genre: Contemporary, Romance, Suspense
Release Date: December 10th 2013
Review Source: Author

Life has been complicated for Sydney Ross. Desperate for a new start, she leaves home but, during her travels, witnesses something that will forever alter the path of her life. On the run for the last six years, Sydney finds herself living the life of a nomad until she one day stumbles into a small town and hopes she’s finally found a place to put down roots. With a good job in a local diner and, for the first time ever, friends who feel like family, things start looking up for Sydney. The biggest shock of all is catching the eye of the town’s most eligible bachelor, the sexy sheriff, Wade Jenkins.

Sparks fly between them, and it’s not long before Sydney believes Elton, Missouri could be the home she’s always wished for. But Sydney’s past and her secrets have a way of catching up with her. When a brutal murder shakes the small town, Sydney is terrified that the countdown has begun on her time in Elton.

Have the shadows from her past found her again? The people who mean the most want her to stay, but that would put everyone, including her daughter, at risk. Can Sydney put her faith in Wade or will she keep running from a danger that even she doesn’t fully understand?

I've enjoyed reading Victoria's for quite a while now, so when I saw that there was a blog tour for her latest release I jumped at the opportunity to be a part of it.

From the get-go we are introduced to a pretty intense situation, but don't really know why or what's happening. As the story progressed, though, we slowly got the information. I really enjoyed the suspense and mystery, trying to figure out just what was going on and if they'd be able to.

The two main characters that we got to hear from were Sydney Ross and Wade Jenkins. They were so fun to read about, especially getting to see how they both felt about one another without the other knowing. They were sweet and frustrating and adorable. I really loved their journey and didn't want it to end.

Whenever I get to the end of one of Victoria's stories, I always find that I want more. And from what I can tell, this will be the first book in a series. I hope that is the case and definitely can't wait to read more. If it's possible, I'll be one of the first in line to get my hands on her next book!

Blog Tour: Beautiful Dreams by Alicia Rae + Giveaway

Beautiful Dreams

Beautiful 3

Author: Alicia Rae
Genre: Contemporary, Romance
Release Date: January 20th 2014
Review Source: Author

Kyle has mended Lily’s broken heart, and as they have fallen in love, all she dreams of is finally having her happily ever after.

But as time goes on, Lily can no longer ignore the desire to know more about Kyle's past. When she learns more, she will discover if she can heal Kyle’s heartache as he has done for her.

Will his past break them apart? Or will their love be enough to strengthen their bonds?

*Book Contains Mature Content

One of the things I've enjoyed the most about this series is the sweet, sweet romance. Sure there's some angst and hurt that Lily and Kyle have to work through, but overall we get a lot of love and romance.

The first two books were not only about Lily and Kyle finding one another and falling in love, but also about Lily working through the heartache and loss of no longer having her family. With Kyle by her side she found a way to heal. And in this book, it was Kyle's turn to work through his struggles with Lily by his side. Even though dealing with it was difficult, they managed to get through it with one another.

The best part I have to say would be the couple of surprises they had along the way, ones that I don't want to give away. I've enjoyed following them along this journey and only watching their love deepen along the way.

It's sad that their story has come to an end, but there will be more to come with Lily's cousin Jason and Kyle's sister Abbey in the next book. I'm pretty excited to see what happens with those two.

Waiting on Wednesday: Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.
(Coming February 2014)
The heart-stopping conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, which Ransom Riggs, bestselling author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, called "a thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love"

Juliette now knows she may be the only one who can stop the Reestablishment. But to take them down, she'll need the help of the one person she never thought she could trust: Warner. And as they work together, Juliette will discover that everything she thought she knew-about Warner, her abilities, and even Adam-was wrong.

In Shatter Me, Tahereh Mafi created a captivating and original story that combined the best of dystopian and paranormal and was praised by Publishers Weekly as "a gripping read from an author who's not afraid to take risks." The sequel, Unravel Me, blew readers away with heart-racing twists and turns, and New York Times bestselling author Kami Garcia said it was "dangerous, sexy, romantic, and intense." Now this final book brings the series to a shocking and climactic end.
 I have been anxiously awaiting this book for a while now and am so excited that it's finally almost here. This has been such an interesting ride: Tahereh's amazing prose, the characters, the world. It pulled me in from the very beginning. I'm probably one of the few people who still doesn't like Warner after reading Unravel Me, so I'm curious to see where everything's headed in this conclusion.
What are you waiting on?

“Ender, Katniss, and now Darrow.”—Scott Sigler

Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children.

But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and sprawling parks spread across the planet. Darrow—and Reds like him—are nothing more than slaves to a decadent ruling class.

Inspired by a longing for justice, and driven by the memory of lost love, Darrow sacrifices everything to infiltrate the legendary Institute, a proving ground for the dominant Gold caste, where the next generation of humanity’s overlords struggle for power.  He will be forced to compete for his life and the very future of civilization against the best and most brutal of Society’s ruling class. There, he will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies . . . even if it means he has to become one of them to do so.
