NEW RELEASE - The Promise by Kim Carmichael

Title: The Promise
Author: Kim Carmichael
Genre: Erotica
Publisher: Hot Ink Press
Blitz Host: Lady Amber's Tours

Demon Dolan Ciar exists on three simple words: desire, denial, and destruction. Every four years, he is allowed one night of earthly passion to punish a deserving female. By the time he is finished, his victims are left as willing receptacles for demons yet to come.
 Since she was four, a demon has been the only constant in Leora Desmond's life. He taught her how to seize control, to never give up, and to take whatever she wanted. At twenty-four, her self-centered existence is focused on one thing. She wants Dolan, and she won't be dissuaded.
 A mistake brought Dolan to Leora. A promise bound him to her. Returning once again to ask for his freedom, he is faced with Leora demanding to be his next conquest. The ultimate retribution would be to take from her the ultimate symbol of her selfishness.
 Now, Dolan must decide if he can doom her to life in living hell or face his own set of unearthly consequences, while Leora must choose between her pleasure and her heart.
 The Promise blurs the line between good and evil, desire and love, and promises and commitment.

He tilted his head. "You look older."
She forced herself to blink and to remember her goal. "Then I assume I am at last old enough to be a fit for a demon." She stepped forward, stopping less than a foot away from him. The back of her throat dried out, and she swallowed.
He put his hand to his chin, his gaze taking her in. "This old song and dance. When will you use the brains you have and leave it alone?"
His words hit her, but rather than retreating, she moved closer. The energy, the tingle, the wafts of spice encompassed her and lured her toward him. "Never."
"You were smart last time. Why don't you release me so I can do what I came here for." He glanced down at her and then shifted his focus beyond her. "I have needs as well."
"Tonight I am the one you came here for." The mention of his last visit stung, but she willed herself to keep going. She ran her fingers up the buttons of his shirt. "You always told me to take control."
He shook his head. "A lesson you learned well."
She reached up and clenched his collar in her fist. "I let you go last time, but tonight I am the one you need."
He grabbed her wrist. "I spared you before. Never forget that."
She stared right into his eyes. No weakness was allowed tonight. "It's me, Dolan. Me, or you can be celibate until the decade I do you the favor of dying. I don't care about your pain." She tensed, preparing herself for his retaliation.
"I thought I taught you better than to make demands of a demon." He pressed his palm to the side of her face.
Heat radiated through her body, sending a warning to every one of her nerve endings. "A demon who comforts a child is a failure of a demon in my book."
His jaw tightened. "That was a mistake. An oversight."

Where to find Jamie'

Here are few Excerpts from The Road That Leads To Home

1.            “Why are you fighting this?" James groaned. "I know what you said, but I don't buy that. I've seen the future, and it's me. You know we belong together. Nothing else matters."

2.            You remember James Clements, don’t you? He’s Dad’s right hand man these days.” Then with a laugh she said, “Guess it wasn’t you he was interested in getting his hands on, it was the inn.”
               Shows what she knows. He did get his hands on me and on more than one occasion, Sara thought to herself. Back then, she thought he was the man she would spend the rest of her life with, but it wasn’t meant to be.

3. Taking a deep breath she said, “I decided last night after talking to Becca. I wanted to sleep on it to be sure that it was what I wanted, and it is. I haven’t contacted anyone in Florida about this yet, but I will. As for my stuff, I will have to go back and sort through it to see what I’ll be able to keep and what I’ll wind up getting rid of. I’ll go back some time after Dad gets home so you’ll at least have Mom to help out.”
 “If I need to do some extra work to help out while she’s away I won’t mind.” James said to Becca before turning his attention back to Sara. “I have one more question for you if you don’t mind.”
 “Sure. Shoot.” “Will you marry me?

The Re-Release of CLOSURE by Kim Carmichael - New Cover

Author: Kim Carmichael
Genre: Romance, Erotic Romance, Erotica
Publisher: Hot Ink Press
Blitz Host: Lady Amber's Tours

Book Description:

There's always the one…

He's one person throughout life you think about every so often, the one who leaves his unique indelible mark on you, the person with whom you need closure.
For Margaret Collins that person was Mike Taylor.

After he broke her heart seventeen years ago, she left everything she knew and reinvented herself. With a new home, a new look and a new name, Riley Williams is now an up and coming journalist given the assignment to interview a Mike Taylor. She never suspected he would be her Mike Taylor.

With Mike having no hint of Riley's true identity, she must decide if she will make him pay for sins he doesn't remember committing, or if she can wipe away the past and be with the one man who she has always wanted?

Can she finally have closure?


Mike never tutored her in chemistry. She supposed it was because she followed the instructions in that class or she may blow herself up. One thing was certain. She did not need any help now.

"Take a bite." Mike held up a spoon containing a sampling of chocolate covered coconut cake with raspberry sauce.

They sat together at tiny table outside the small café where they were presented with several small dessert selections, including chocolate mousse and a custard dish, but both their eyes went to the sinful cake first.

Their dinner was incredible, but not for the food. She barely remembered eating, but she savored the way Mike ordered for her, how he chose the ideal wine to compliment the meal, and how he continued to stare at her as if nothing else existed.

"It's dripping." She shook her head.

"Then it's perfect." He lifted the spoon higher.

She decided not to mention anything else dripping. She was ready to drown.

Instead, she lapped up some of the sauce with her finger.

She went to put her finger between her lips, when he dropped the spoon and caught her wrist.

"I believe I would like the first taste." He brought her hand to his mouth and sucked the sauce off her.

He swirled his tongue along her fingertip. If he was trying to show her exactly what he could do to another part of her body, it worked.

"Delectable." He licked his lips. "But I believe I need something more." He leaned forward and kissed her.

This kiss was different than the one on the pier. They already skipped over awkward, unsure connections and were now at tantalizing tastes. The type of kissing usually meant as a precursor to other, more satisfying, activities.

He opened his mouth giving her a sampling of the decadent dessert mixed with him.

No, dripping wasn't the word to describe her. If he were any other man, she would have already had them back in bed letting him properly attend to her needs. She squeezed her thighs together in an attempt to relieve some of the pressure.

He placed his hand on her leg. "You seem a little tense."

She glanced at him out of the corner of her eye, tightening and relaxing the muscles in her leg. "I'm just in good shape."
"So I feel." He inched his hand up, his fingertips sneaking under the hem of her dress.

Darkness surrounded me. A voice spoke softly in my head. Do not die, young one. Be strong. Do not die.
I became painfully aware of liquid pouring down on me, each drop like an icy hammer hitting my sore skin. Movement echoed in my ears, telling me that I wasn’t alone. Slowly, I opened my eyes. Harsh light blinded me. My mind was fuzzy. I struggled to recall any small detail that might clue me in to what had happened and where I was.
I reached up to wipe the splattering water from my face. I chanced opening my eyes again. As I looked up, I spotted the source of the water, a showerhead on the opposite wall. Confused by this odd location, I struggled to penetrate the blackness of my memory and figure out how I had ended up in a bathtub.
Where the hell am I?
I tried to focus on the bright, unfamiliar surroundings.
My vision, it seemed, had become remarkably sharp while I was unconscious. I couldn’t remember ever noting so many details in such simple surroundings as these before.
Cream-colored tiles covered the walls, each rippled with tiny imperfections. Each held an individual pattern, making them unique and special. Yellowing, porous grout, framing the tiles, appeared to be littered with dots from small air bubbles that had come to the surface, creating different patterns and shapes.
Even the plain white curtain that separated me from the rest of the room seemed unusually detailed and perfectly woven. I saw each tiny strand that had been tightly bound together to form this heavy, durable cloth.
Small specks of mold building up in the corners of the porcelain basin weren’t able to escape my new sight either.
 The amazing level of detail I experienced didn’t hold my attention for long. Freezing water still poured down on me. I needed to reach the handle and end the cold assault, but it seemed so far out of my reach. I eased myself up to a sitting position, my muscles aching with each small movement. Looking down, I saw my beaten body. The water had washed away some of the grime, but what was left of my shredded clothes was stained and clinging to my skin.
“Uggh!” I moaned.
“Oh, good, you’re alive,” said a male voice from behind the white curtain.
The voice seemed strange and yet somehow familiar. I searched my fuzzy memories to place the voice with a face. A wave of fear came over me as I remembered the attack.
Had I been kidnapped? Was I a hostage of some kind? I struggled to recall the events of the evening.
“You’ve been out for a few hours. I was worried I might have lost you,” continued the voice.
“What?” I called, still not sure who I was talking to.
“It doesn’t always work. Some people can’t be turned,” the voice said matter-of-factly.
“Turned?” What the hell is that supposed to mean?

Veiled Secrets - Character Interview and Review

Title: Veiled Secrets
Author: MaryLynn Bast
Series: Heart of a Wolf Series (Novella)
   { Seriana’s Tale}
Genre: Paranormal/ Werewolves
Publisher: Werewolf Tails Publishing
Release Date: July 27, 2012
Edition/ Formats Available In: Print & Ebook (Kindle)

Seriana Aphenithea, Princess of the Light Loxy Realm has been banned. Why?  She can’t remember. She must find her way, and her memories, if she is ever to return home.
Waking with no memory of whom or where she is, Seriana runs for her life when two beings chase her through the forest. Glowing eyes stares out at her through the darkness. Sending a mental call for help and in response, two wolves emerge.
While protecting her from the hunters who intend to do her harm, one of the wolves becomes fatally injured. Acting on instinct, Seriana merges her energies with his, saving his life. Connecting her mentally to the human the wolf turned in to. Adam and Blake are werewolves. Surprisingly this does to scare her. In fact, it triggers the beginning of her memories. She has been to the earth realm before.
With her no longer allowed to enter her own realm, Seriana must find a way to safeguard her family in the Light Realm and on earth. She has to protect those around her by ensuring no one finds out her VEILED SECRETS
Seriana stormed through the hotel room. “You are not leaving me here.”
His face was clouded with frustration. “Stubborn.”
Damn right she was being stubborn. She was not going to allow him to go out into the forest and face Christopher and possibly other vampires alone.
“I won’t put you in danger!” His voice rose slightly in his anger.
Folding her arms across her chest, she glared up at him. Her chin jutted out in determination. Then one corner of her lip lifted into a slight grin, she nodded and dropped her hands to her sides. “Okay fine, leave me here.” She plopped down on the bed and grabbed the remote.
Darius stilled, his own eyes narrowing at the sudden change in her attitude. He knew that never bode well. He studied her suspiciously. “Tell me you are not going to follow me.”
Seriana didn’t look at him. “Okay, I won’t.” Her eyes remained glued to the TV. “See you later.”
He stood with his hands on his hips shaking his head. “You don’t give up that easy.” He stepped over in front of the television, blocking her view.
Seriana lifted her eyes to him and smiled, making sure her mind was completely blocked to him. “You are the strategist for the Guard. You know what you are doing. So go do it and move out of the way, I’m trying to watch television.”
Darius stood staring at her for moment longer. “Keep the dagger with you and do not remove the necklace I gave you.” He turned, yanked the door open and stalked out, closing it with a thud.
Seriana remained where she was, her fingers tracing the garishly large silver cross around her neck on a thick silver necklace. Waiting for him to barge back in, she hid her grin when the door was shoved open.
Darius stood there shaking his head. “You don’t give up that easy.”
Releasing a sigh, she dropped the remote beside her where it bounced once on the fluffy comforter, and lifted her eyes to his. “I simply agree that you know what you are doing. I do not want to get in your way.”
He shook his head. “What are you up to?”
Glancing at the clock with an innocent look on her face, she turned back to him. “You are going to be late.”
With a huff, he turned and stormed out again.
This time, she waited a moment then jumped off the bed and opened the door a crack, ducking back inside when he turned at the end of the hallway and looked back towards their room. When she heard him turn to go, she followed.

Interview with Seriana

1.  What is your full name and where are you from? Seriana Aphenithea, Princess of the Loxy Realm

2.  What was your life like growing up? Since I was stripped of my memory when I was banished from my realm of Loxy, I do not recall my life growing up. It is coming to me in bits and pieces.

3.  Is there anything special about you that makes you different from a regular girl on earth? Since I am not a regular girl from earth I am completely different than they are. My skin is very pale, my hair is white and my eyes are pink. Luckily I can change the color of my eyes so I don’t stand out quite so much.

4.  Have you ever been in love and if so, can you tell us about him? As I regain my memories I know there is a human I was in love with, but I am still grasping to find out more.

5.  Do you have any fears? Never gaining my full memories is my biggest fear.

6.  What’s your favorite outfit? Honestly I prefer no clothing. The material of from the earth realm can be chaffing at times.

7.  What type of relationship do you have with Adam? Darius? With no real memories, other than what I am learning as I go along. With Adam my relationship is being built and I’m not quite sure where that is going. With Darius, he is with the royal guard from Loxy and a royal pain in my butt.  

8. If you could do anything over again, what would it be? I would not change a thing. Life is as we live it.

9.  Where do you see things for yourself in the next five years? That is a good question. When I figure this one out I will let you know.

Fun facts.

Sunshine or rain? Both

Lake, Beach or Forest? Forest

Earth or Loxy Realm? Earth

Man or Wolf? Is there really a difference?

My Review:

This novella is a great addition to the Heart of a Wolf series. I was hoping we’d get to read Seriana’s story and was thrilled when this one came out. I was intrigued by Seriana when I first read about her in Werewolf Bound, Adam’s story. In this story, we get more than just a glimpse of Seriana and her interactions with Adam and Blake. She is Fey, and well, Adam and Blake are werewolves. There are others characters introduced into this story and that would be vampires and trolls.
I enjoyed the story very much although, I would have liked to have seen a little more transition as scenes changed. It jumped a few times, which left me confused, but managed to pick up quick enough. I also would have liked to have seen a little more about Erick he was a big part of the story, however, we never got to meet him and now I want more. J
If you like werewolves, fey, vampires, and trolls, MaryLynn Bast has a great way of giving you just that. I gave this story 3.7 Shiny Stars.

Title: Games of Fire
Author:   Airicka Phoenix
Genre: Young Adult Thriller and Mystery with a strong dose of Romance 
Publisher:   Airicka Phoenix 
Release Date:  Feb 14, 2013 

Warnings: Strong language and mild sexual content
Formats: ebook & paperback

Games  of    Fire   Synopsis

Sophie has enough problems in her life without Spencer turning her blood to fire, without his eyes freezing and burning her, without his hatred of her. Since his migration into the house next to hers, Sophia Valdez isn’t sure whether she wants to toss him under a bus or kiss that smirking mouth of his. But even as the temperature rises around them, leaping flames of passion, want and desire,everything either has ever known will be shattered by the lurking shadow hounding their every step, wanting revenge.

Spencer Rowth moves to the sleepy town of River Port with his mother and twelve year old sister, Suzy, to escape a deceitful father, an unfaithful girlfriend and a life crumbling much too fast for him to grapple onto only to be smacked upside the head by the last thing he wanted again. Sophie was everything he refused to want. Her temper, her wit, her laugh, her smile, the way her entire body goes up in flames under his hands are things he would rather slam a lid on and forget. Instead, he finds himself falling for the smart-mouth next door. But how long will he have before the evil chasing them catches up? How long before the very thing he never wanted becomes his only thread to sanity? And who is after them? What do they want and why do they want Spencer and Sophie dead?


“I won’t bite,” he said, probably meaning it as a joke.

“Oh if only that were my only problem,” she sighed under her breath.


She shook her head. “Nothing.”

She took his hand, slipping her icy fingers through his. The electric sparks tore a fiery path down the length of her arms, nearly melting the ice beneath their feet. She shivered involuntarily and felt his fingers flex.

“All right?” Had his voice always been so husky?

She dampened her lips. “Yeah…” The single word died in her throat as she was pulled towards him. Her heart tripped. Her lungs stilled. The heat of his body rushed over her with the subtle scent peppermint, leather, spices and smoke.

A soft mist blew around them. Raindrops glistened in his hair, shimmering under the pale glow of the light post. His eyes were shadowed beneath wispy fringes, but the silver in them glinted like pools of liquid mercury. Her breath caught. It must have made a sound because his fingers tightened. His shaky exhale caressed her flushed face.

“This,” he whispered so quietly she almost didn’t hear him. “Is why you are so bad for me.”
