blurb

Sexy Alpha Photographer meets Bratty Journalist

When spoiled, mischievous, “full of moxie” Piper Zellar graduates from the prestigious John Hopkins University with a journalism degree, she’s given the chance of a lifetime from her new employer. Travel the eastern coastline and write a vacationer’s guide. She has spent her life hiding behind a wild child attitude to mask a terrible personal hurt from her childhood, but she has no idea how her life is about to change.

William Jones is a Dom who can make submissives weak in the knees with just his commands. Although he has been assigned as Piper’s travel photographer, Billy is also on a journey of his own. He sees something in Piper no one else has seen before. Her true submissive side.

Piper can sense there’s more to Billy than meets the eye. Soon she’ll find that she’s developed feelings for her Dom…but does he share those same feelings, or is she just his toy until their job is over.

about-the-author

14618784_1784249115196400_162313557_oAbigail Lee Justice writes emotional, erotic, romantic suspense that includes a BDSM theme. She creates strong characters who seem real but are flawed in some ways; some couples Happily Ever After will be a work in process. Some characters’ problems are just too steamy to fix in one book.

Born and raised in Baltimore City by two wonderful, supportive, loving parents, as a child Abigail made up vivid stories in her head. Until one day a friend told her instead of keeping her stories locked in her head she needed to put them on paper and that’s exactly what she did.

Abigail met her husband 29 years ago on a blind date (thanks Dan C.) while working a part time job to put herself through college. She fell madly in love with her Prince Charming and has been since the first day they met.

By day, Abigail practices medicine in a busy Cardiologist practice. By evening she switches her white coat for more relaxed comfortable clothing. She has two wonderful adult sons and a very spoiled chocolate lab. In the wee hours of the night, she writes BDSM romances.

In her spare time when not working or writing, Abigail enjoys reading, concocting vegetarian dishes, exotic vacations, scuba diving, high adventure activities, living in the lifestyle she writes about, and doing lots and lots of research making sure her characters get it just right.

Books Available This Week

So, these books are coming out this week, if you missed them, or didn’t realize – here they are…


29093326
Expected Release Date – 18 October 2016

Synopsis:

Sierra’s family runs a Christmas tree farm in Oregon – it’s a bucolic setting for a girl to grow up in, except that every year, they pack up and move to California to set up their Christmas tree lot for the season.  So Sierra lives two lives: her life in Oregon and her life at Christmas.  And leaving one always means missing the other.

Until this particular Christmas, when Sierra meets Caleb, and one life eclipses the other.

By reputation, Caleb is not your perfect guy: years ago, he made an enormous mistake and has been paying for it ever since.  But Sierra sees beyond Caleb’s past and becomes determined to help him find forgiveness and, maybe, redemption.  As disapproval, misconceptions, and suspicions swirl around them, Caleb and Sierra discover the one thing that transcends all else: true love.

What Light is a love story that’s moving and life-affirming and completely unforgettable.


28260435
Released – 11 October 2016

Synopsis:

In late-eighteenth-century Ireland, accidental stargazer Caroline Ainsworth learns that her life is not what it seems when her father, Author, throws himself from his rooftop observatory.  He has chosen death over a darkened life, gone blind from staring at the sun in his obsessive hunt for an unknown planet near Mercury.  Caroline had often assisted her father with his observations; when astronomer William Herschel discovered Uranus in 1781, she watched helplessly as unremitting jealousy drove Arthur to madness.

Grief-stricken, Caroline at first abandons the vain search, leaves Ireland for London and tries to forget her love for Finnegan O’Siodha, the tinkering blacksmith who was helping her father build a massive telescope larger than Herschel’s own.  But she later discovers that her father has left her more than the wreck of an unfinished telescope: his cryptic atlas holds the secret to finding a new world at the edge of the sky.  As Caroline reluctantly resumes the search and confronts her longing for Finnegan, Ireland is swept into rebellion, and the lovers are plunged into its violence.

This is a novel of the obsessions of the age – scientific inquiry, geographic discovery, political reformation – but above all astronomy, the mapping of the solar system, and beyond.  It is a novel of the quest for knowledge and also – just as importantly – for human connection.  The Blind Astronomer’s Daughter is rich, far-reaching, and unforgettable.


28588345
Released – 11 October 2016

Synopsis:

The thrilling finale to the New York Times bestselling Young Elites series from ‘hit factory’ Marie Lu.

There was once a time when darkness shrouded the world, and the darkness had a queen.  Adelina Amouteru is done suffering.  She’s turned her back on those who have betrayed her and achieved the ultimate revenge: victory.  Her reign as the White Wolf has been a triumphant one, but with each conquest, her cruelty only grows.  The darkness within her has begun to spiral out of control, threatening to destroy all that she’s achieved.

Adelina’s forced to revisit old wounds when a new danger appears, putting not only Adelina at risk but every Elite and the very world they live in.  In order to save herself and preserve her empire, Adelina, and her Roses must join the Daggers on a perilous quest – though this uneasy alliance may prove to be the real danger.

Bestselling author Marie Lu concludes Adelina’s story with this haunting and hypnotizing final installment to the Young Elites series.


27836564
Released – 11 October 2016

Synopsis:

In her twenty-fifth adventure, vampire hunter and necromancer Anita Blake learns that evil is in the eye of the beholder…

Anita has never seen Damian, her vampire servant, in such a state.  The rising sun doesn’t usher in the peaceful death that he desperately needs.  Instead, he’s being bombarded with violent nightmares and blood sweats.

And now, with Damian at his most vulnerable, Anita needs him the most.  The vampire who created him, who subjected him to centuries of torture, might be losing control, allowing rogue vampires to run wild and break one of their kind’s few strict taboos.

Some say love is a great motivator, but hatred gets the job done, too.  And when Anita joins forces with her friend Edward to stop the carnage, Damian will be at their side, even if it means traveling back to the land where all his nightmares spring from… a place that couldn’t be less welcoming to a vampire, an assassin, and a necromancer.

There are teens, but not one single adult. Just as suddenly, there are no phones, no internet, no television. No way to get help. And no way to figure out what’s happened.

And the teens themselves are changing, developing new talents—unimaginable, dangerous, deadly powers—that grow stronger by the day. It’s a terrifying new world. Sides are being chosen, a fight is shaping up. Townies against rich kids. Bullies against the weak. Powerful against powerless.

Books I want to read soon…

This month’s TBR is already set in stone, but I have added three other books to this month already.  In total, I will hopefully read 12 books this month.  *Phew*

Next month I’m hoping to read some of these (and whatever books I didn’t get to this month):


Witch’s Brew by Heidi R Kling
tmi-book-covers.jpg
Once soulmates, the witch and warlock covens of the California coast have been estranged for a century. Raised to hate each other, their teenagers meet in the Solstice Stones, a magical battleground where they draw energy from each other to maintain their balance. 16-year-olds Logan and Lily have spent years training for their first Stones…only to discover just days before that the enemy may not be what either of them had thought.
In Witch’s Brew, Lily is torn between her feelings for Logan and her coven’s need to know who—or what—he is. The young lovers’ race against time, their distrust for each other, and the powerful influence of their elders to unravel the mystery of their pasts before their future is destroyed.
In Witch’s Brew, Lily and Logan’s fate is already decided, but Heidi explores several different possible pathways for how they get there. She shares scenes that wouldn’t normally fit in a book format and gives readers more precious moments between the two young lovers. As the series progresses, you’ll see some normal narrative forms, interspersed with smaller scenes, alternate points of view, and a lot of “what if” scenarios.

Queen of Someday by Sherry D Ficken

22360786.jpg
Before she can become the greatest empress in history, fifteen-year-old Sophie will have to survive her social-climbing mother’s quest to put her on the throne of Russia—at any cost.
Imperial Court holds dangers like nothing Sophie has ever faced before. In the heart of St. Petersburg, surviving means navigating the political, romantic, and religious demands of the bitter Empress Elizabeth and her handsome, but the sadistic nephew, Peter. Determined to save her impoverished family—and herself—Sophie vows to do whatever is necessary to thrive in her new surroundings. But an attempt on her life and an unexpected attraction threatens to derail her plans.
Alone in a new and dangerous world, learning who to trust and who to charm may mean the difference between becoming queen and being sent home in shame to marry her lecherous uncle. With traitors and murderers lurking around every corner, her very life hangs in the balance. Betrothed to one man but falling in love with another, Sophie will need to decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice in order to become the empress she is destined to be.
In a battle for the soul of a nation, will love or destiny reign supreme?

Nine Lives by Karin de Havin

BK1-Nine-Lives-Part-One-E-Book-Cover-copy.jpg
Eighteen-year-old Taylor knows two things for sure: ONE: She’s dead. TWO: Heaven looks like a run-down version of the Las Vegas Strip. The more she discovers about a heaven full of teens like her, the more mysterious it becomes—especially when her afterlife coach turns out to be her tyrannical fifth-grade teacher.
Plagued by questions her whole life, Taylor finds Heaven prompts even more. Why can’t she remember her death? Why isn’t Heaven the idyllic place she thought it would be? When she dares to ask, her teacher tells Taylor to keep her mouth shut. Everyone knows Heaven is perfect. That’s a lie. What are they trying to hide? Taylor desperately wants to flee this strange place and return to her old life. She’s shocked to find out there’s a possibility her dream can come true. But that chance depends on passing a series of tests in the Afterlife for Idiots Handbook and winning the Cloud Nine Contest. If she fails, will her teacher follow through on her threat and turn Taylor into pond scum?
Taylor tries to solve the mysteries of Heaven as it slowly crumbles around her. While competing in the contest, she learns there are dark forces at work behind the celestial show…and they are after her. This leads to the biggest question of all: Is she the only one who can stop them?

Transcendence by Michelle Madow

17156778.jpg

The Transcend Time Saga is about a high school student named Lizzie who has been reincarnated from 1815, England, but doesn’t realize it until she meets her soul mate from the past and he triggers her memories to gradually return.

 Entangled by Nikki Jefford51XqDlJC3BL.jpg
Hiding her powers was never a problem for seventeen-year-old Graylee Perez. Not until her diabolical twin sister decided to go on a rampage that could expose them all o
r get someone hurt. 
 
To add to the aggravation, the coven rejects Raj McKenna catches Gray performing a complex spell and is convinced they would make a powerful couple. He can delude himself all he wants. Gray has sworn off dating warlocks, especially delinquents who play with fire.
 
But even Gray’s mysterious death won’t deter Raj, not after Gray is brought back from the great beyond. Only she’s not truly back. Her body’s still six feet under and she’s on borrowed time. There are forces threatening Gray’s existence and a powerful wizard willing to help . . . for a price. Gray doesn’t know who to trust or how long she has left before she vanishes for good, but she’s determined to stick around no matter what the cost.

Of course, there are a lot more books on my bookshelf that I really want to read, but before I know how many books I didn’t get to this month, I cannot add any more books to this list.  A full TBR list will be posted when October starts, so let’s see what happens.

Love Always,
