Terrified of becoming mated like her parents, Isabelle has locked herself away in order to avoid their fate. She is content to stay sheltered amongst her family, hidden away as she lives out her days away from the human race, and the world. Despite her determination to remain alone, her world is rocked when a person from her parent’s past arrives at their door, bringing with them the powerful, and stunning vampire Stefan. Though Stefan is not expecting to arrive at a nest full of vampires, he is immediately drawn to the vibrant, often defiant, and willful Isabelle. To his surprise, Isabelle does everything in her power to avoid him, and her desire for him. No matter how hard she tries to fight it though, Isabelle begins to realize that trying to deny her destiny may just destroy them both, as there are some things that cannot be stopped. But just as she begins to let her guard down, Stefan’s dark and deadly past catches up to him and threatens to destroy them both.

STsmashwordsCoverA Summoner's Tale by Victoria Danann

Named BEST PARANORMAL ROMANCE NOVEL of 2013, REVIEWERS' CHOICE AWARDS, the Paranormal Romance Guild. While the devastatingly seductive ex-vampire, Istvan Baka, is forced to relive his tragic life as human and confront his past as vampire, a very pregnant Elora Laiken faces an ultimate test of survival when she's attacked by assassins from her dimension of origin. While their friends and mates mount respective searches and epic rescue efforts, these two friends and almost lovers, joined by a mystical bond, separated by distance, must simultaneously struggle alone through their own personal tortures in pain and darkness. This is the story of Heaven McBride, a Black Swan demonologist who was temporarily assigned as Baka's assistant. When he turns up missing, Heaven agrees to submit to hypnosis to help the rescue effort with possible clues about his disappearance buried in her subconscious mind. During those sessions, she proves that love can wait patiently through lifetimes for the chance to blossom and be fulfilled. She also inadvertently reveals that she's been hiding a unique musical talent. She's the once-in-a- generation summoner, who can call any creature with her flute. Even vampires.  

About the Author

Victoria120x180My first book was published May of 2012. I write cross-genre with uniquely fresh perspectives on paranormal creatures, characters, and themes. Add a dash of scifi and a flourish of fantasy to enough humor to make you laugh out loud and enough steam to make you squirm in your chair. My heroines are independent femmes with flaws and minds of their own whether they are aliens, witches, demonologists, psychics, or past life therapists. My heroes are hot and hunky, but they also have brains, character, and good manners - usually - whether they be elves, demons, berserkers, werewolves, or vampires. My first book, My Familiar Stranger, was nominated for Best Paranormal Romance of 2012 by both Reviewers' Choice and Readers' Choice Awards. All of my books have opened on the Amazon Best Sellers list and earned Night Owl Reviews TOP PICK awards. For books published in 2013, Black Swan won three awards. 1. Best Paranormal Romance Series 2. Best Paranormal Romance Novel - A SUMMONER'S TALE 3. Best Vampire~Shifter Novel - MOONLIGHT.

For some reason, my young self wanted to be an Accountant. Thinking on it now, I wonder how I had any friends. Regardless, it was the direction I finally took. While I could wrangle numbers with the best of 'em, and even though I wore the crown as the most outspoken, belligerent accountant in the world, my mind got as stuffy as my daily routine. It was here that I dusted off my creative hat and began writing.

BLOOD WILL BE SHED...

The ghosts of Donovan "Blade" Brookes' life are closing in on him.

Hardened by an abusive childhood and haunted by the murder of his fiancé, Blade struggles against the dark forces threatening to consume him. When he helps Layla Reed in her hour of need, he has no idea she will be the light to his darkness. As they spend more time together, he is powerless to fight his desire for her. Powerless to fight his need for her. However, as his feelings deepen, he pushes her away, reluctant to drag her into his world. With enemies coming at him from all directions, Storm MC needing his help to fight off a rival, and his father still causing him grief, Blade needs the love of a good woman now more than ever. Can Layla push Blade to the edge and get him to admit to both of them what he wants? Or will the darkness pull him under once and for all?

What can I say besides I freaking LOVE THIS SERIES!  Blade you are one dangerous, sexy, alpha male with demons that are a part of you that at times they define you.  When we first met Blade, we knew that he wasn’t going to be your typical bad boy, no, you could tell from the first time you meet him that he was going to be a game changer and that my fellow readers is a hell of an understatement.  There is so much more to Blade, including the fact that he still holds the death of his fiancĂ© in his heart and soul and blames himself.  He doesn’t ever want to get close to someone like that again, but when he gets a taste of Layla, his foundation isn’t just cracked, it is broken and he doesn’t know how to feel about that.

Layla, she is a ball crushing (not even busting but crushing) bitch.  She is a smart ass, feisty, protective and exactly what Blade needs.  She is not shy or weak, nope she is strong and has her own mind.  She wants to know Blade’s demons and doesn’t run scared when she learns just who Blade is.  Like I said, the perfect fit in every way for Blade.

Slay, is different than the other Storm series books only in the fact that Blade is not a part of Storm, but at the same time is linked to them because of his father, and his half brother and sister.  Don’t let the fact that he isn’t knee deep in the Storm MC make you not want to read it, because if you miss this book you will miss out on a damn good read.  One that is emotional, sexy as hell, is gritty and at times makes you want to scream both in frustration and to thank the lord.  Each book in this series, for me at least, has gotten better and better.  I am totally hooked and there are still more books to come (YES!). Make sure if for some reason that you haven’t read this series yet to read them in order, because the books are connected and ongoing.

EXCERPT 
I remained silent and waited to see how far he’d take this. When his hand moved up the inside of my thigh and under my skirt, I parted my legs and rested my head against the seat, closing my eyes. He kept going until he reached my panties. A moment later, I moaned as he pushed his finger inside me and went deep, massaging me at the same time as his thumb played with my clit. My hands gripped the car seat, and I held on tight. The pleasure from Donovan’s fingers was intense and I knew it wouldn’t be long until he’d make me come.

“God, your fingers . . . ” My voice trailed off and he pushed harder inside me.

“Fuck, baby, you got any idea how fucking turned on I am right now? You’re so fucking ready for my cock,” he groaned and I could hear his hunger for me.

I reached across and placed my hand on his dick. He wasn’t joking when he said he was turned on. My eyes flew open, and I pushed his hand away from me and sat up straight. I looked out the window and realised we weren’t far from his place. “Take me to your house,” I said.

He frowned. “Why’d you stop me? I nearly had you there.”

“Because I want you to fuck it out of me,” I answered him and prodded his arm. “Turn here for your house. It’s closer than mine.”

“You need to get back for work tonight.”

“Baby, what I need is your cock, so turn the damn car and get me to your place. We can sort work out after you’ve fucked me.”

“Fuck,” he growled as he turned the car, “I hope you’re ready for this.”

***
Donovan pretty much yanked me from his car and into his house. I’d fallen in love with his home the first time I’d visited. It was very masculine, in grey and black tones. Very Donovan. Today I hardly had a chance to notice it as he dragged me through it and into his bedroom. Fuck, I loved it when he was like this: demanding and bossy as hell.

And intense.

Donovan’s intensity attracted me to him even before he’d rescued me that night. I’d watched him for a long time, and while I found him a little scary, I’d wanted to know how that intensity would translate in the bedroom. And now I knew – it was hot, and it made me crave his touch like I’d never craved a man’s touch before.

He got me into his bedroom, pushed me up against the wall, and shoved his hand straight up my skirt, and into my panties.

Fuck.

His eyes blazed with desire as he growled, “I know you want my dick, but I need to feel you first.”

I grabbed his face with both hands. “Make it quick,” I demanded before pulling his lips to mine.

His fingers pushed inside, and he grunted something unintelligible into my mouth as he kissed and fingered me. I let his face go so I could reach down and hike my skirt up around my waist. Then I wrapped one of my legs around him, and tilted my pussy forward so his fingers could go deeper.

“Oh, fuck,” I moaned as his fingers brought me so much pleasure. It was too much. I needed his cock now, so I pushed him away.

He knew what I wanted and began tearing off my clothes. Once he had me naked, he stripped himself while I stood and enjoyed the show. Then he picked me up and deposited me on the bed before moving on top of me.

“One day soon, I’m gonna get fucking creative with you, but for the moment, I just need to get inside you and fuck you,” he said as his cock entered me.

I wrapped my arms and legs around him and moved with him. “I don’t need creative, Donovan. I just need you.”

He pulled out and thrust in again. Over and over, he repeated this and kept up a slow, torturous pace.

His eyes were focused on mine.

Completely.

As if this was his way of communicating with me.

And I felt that; I felt what he wasn’t saying.

It seemed like he fucked me for an eternity. He brought me close, then backed off, then repeated this over and over. By the time I came, I was in a delirious state of bliss. My body was not my own anymore, it was Donovan’s, and I simply moved with him while he skilfully controlled me.

My eyes were shut, and my mind and body lit up with the pleasure from my orgasm. I screamed out Donovan’s name at almost the same time that his body tensed and he roared with his release.

I clung to him tightly as the last drops of pleasure rushed through me, until I eventually let go, and murmured, “You sure know what you’re doing, don’t you?”

He stared at me for a couple of beats before saying, “It’s you, baby.”

“What’s me?” I was still half delirious from the orgasm, but I sensed something in his words and struggled to fight through the haze to grasp what he was saying.

“You bring it out of me. I’ve fucked a lot of women, but I’ve never felt it like this before.” He paused for a second before adding, quite firmly, “Never.”

Blog Tour& Giveaway: All I Want By: J. Daniels



Luke Evans is a heartbreaker.

I didn’t want to give mine to him. Not when he kept me out.

He gave me enough, just enough to make me fall in love with him. I say this to convince myself. But I know the truth.

I would’ve fallen in love with him at a distance.

Handing my heart over to Luke was the easiest thing I’ve ever done. I was naive when I wished for more, when I hoped he wanted the same things I did.

I try to hate him. I try to forget him.

But it’s not that easy. 

Love is a ruthless bitch, and I’m her latest victim.


Tessa Kelly is a man-eater.

When she sets her sights on you, she doesn’t just consume your heart, she goes for your soul.

What we had was perfect, real, and all I would ever want.

But she destroyed it.

She destroyed us.

I try to hate her. I try to forget her.

But it’s not that easy.

Love is for people who have hope, and I have none.

All I Want is the second book in the Alabama Summer series.  We were introduced to Tessa and Luke in book one of the series, Where I Belong.  Tessa and Luke had a relationship, one that had been going great until Tessa ended it with Luke without an explanation as to why.  Luke, like any typical male, did what any man does, he decided to sleep with whoever he could to get over the hurt and of course to get back at Tessa.  Luke has some heartbreaking issues, ones that he hadn't ever shared with Tessa.  He wanted Tessa, but he refused to open himself up to her, which ended up being one of the reasons why Tessa ended things.

Tessa, lord she can be a ball busting bitch.  But, she is also loyal to those she loves, heartbroken over Luke, and ready to possible move on from the pain of not having him with someone else.  I can totally understand why she felt that the relationship she had had with Luke wouldn’t be enough, she wanted all of Luke, the good, the bad and the parts that made her scream in pleasure.  She wouldn’t settle for any less and I really liked that about her.

The pain that both of them felt, I could feel in the pit of my stomach and in my heart.  I cried at the loss of time, the issues that Luke had going on in his life, and the pain Tessa felt when she thought Luke would never fully open up his heart and emotions to her.  All I Want is a more emotional and angsty read than the previous book was, and while it is not as sweet and fun it in itself is one that will make your heart break one minute and fill with hope the next.  I am really enjoying this series and in turn love that I found a new author who I can’t believe that I haven’t read prior to this series.  Make sure you read Where I Belong prior to All I Want, but most importantly, just read them!

#1 Where I Belong




Prologue

Two months ago
No.
No.
No.
Jesus. Fuck, no.
There are absolutely zero good-looking men at this thing. Besides Reed, who disappeared an hour ago with some giggly brunette, and the man I refuse to acknowledge. Weddings are supposed to be a breeding ground for nameless hook-ups, and I’m shit out of luck at this one. So instead of getting drilled in a concealed corner somewhere, my dress bunched around my waist as a stranger becomes familiar with my sounds, I’m having to find other ways to pass the time.
Eat cake.
Hit up the open bar.
Eat more cake.
Dance with Nolan.
Get cake with Nolan.
Steal Mia away from Ben.
Watch Mia get carried off by Ben.
And now this.
Sitting at an empty table, watching as Ben, Mia, and Nolan all slow dance together. Nolan’s in between them, rubbing Mia’s growing baby bump, while Ben can’t seem to keep his eyes off his new wife. I’m crazy happy for them, but right now, I can’t watch them share another perfect family moment in front of me. I need a break from this. Just a few minutes to get some air.
I step out of the tent and head across the lawn toward the Estate House. I’m walking aimlessly, not having any destination in mind. I just need to get away from all the love for a second. Love is great when you’re with someone. It’s better when it’s reciprocated. But it fucking sucks when that shit is one-sided.
And that’s the only way I’ve known it.
I walk down the side of the building and turn right to go around the back. As soon as I round the corner, I see him.
He’s leaning against the building behind some shrubs, head back, eyes closed, lips slightly parted. His sandy-brown hair is cut shorter than normal, almost buzzed completely, and it does really annoying things to his face. Like show it off more. Those ridiculously gorgeous features of his are on display for my eyes right now, and I don’t have to avert my gaze because he doesn’t know I’m watching. He has no idea I’m staring at his sharp, angular cheekbones, the fullness of his mouth, or the bump at the bridge of his nose that I see as this perfect imperfection.
God, I fucking love that bump.
His face tenses as his arms move to the front of his body, and I let my eyes roam to the reason for this change.
The blonde I recognize from the wedding is on her knees with his cock lodged in her mouth, deep throating it until she gags. His hands are in her hair, encouraging her, pulling her closer until she practically swallows him whole. I lift my eyes to that face I was just secretly admiring seconds ago. It’s no longer tempting me to keep my presence unknown. Because there’s no way in hell I’m going to let this shit happen right now.
Fuck him, and his face.
I step in front of the bush and make a fist, clearing my throat into it. Luke’s eyes shoot open and he grabs the blonde’s head, sliding her off his cock. She releases it with a pop and a grunt of disappointment. Apparently, she isn’t finished. But she looks pretty fucking finished to me.
Luke tucks himself away quickly. “What the fuck, Tessa? What are you doing?”
I look from him to the blonde. “Oh, sweetie. You might want to go disinfect. He’s got the herp.”
Slutty blonde parts her lips as if she’s waiting for another cock. She stands and wipes her mouth with the back of her hand, glaring in Luke’s direction. “Oh my God. Are you serious? You have herpes?”
Luke’s wide eyes train on mine. “What? No I don’t!”
“He’s really sweet about it though,” I say, looking sympathetically at the blonde. “He pays for my Valtrex every month.” I turn my eyes to Luke, letting out a swooning sigh. “So romantic.”
Blonde shoves against Luke’s chest. “You’re disgusting.”
“I don’t have fucking herpes!” Luke adamantly vows as he tightens his belt.
I watch, basking in my victory as blonde trudges through the grass, getting her heel caught in the process. She stumbles a bit, glares at Luke over her shoulder, and disappears around the corner.
“I can’t fucking believe you just did that,” Luke says, prompting me to whip my head around to look at him. He buttons his suit jacket up and steps closer. “What the hell is wrong with you?”
You.
What happened between us.
And the fact that you’ve obviously moved on without any difficulty.
I close the gap and he freezes, his hand flattening against his jacket. My gaze flicks from his crotch to his face, and I mask all the hurt of seeing this asshole with another woman behind the fakest smile I’ve ever worn.
“There’s absolutely nothing wrong with me. You, on the other hand, might want to go to the clinic. If you didn’t have an STD before that whore touched you, I’m sure you have one now.”
I turn and storm away before he can give me a comeback. But more importantly, before he can see the smile fading from my lips.

Release Blitz, Review, & Giveaway: 'Til Death Vol 1 By Bella Jewel



They say there's a fine line between love and hate.

There is.

I married a douchebag.

I didn't know it at the time.

He came in like a handsome stranger and blew me off my feet.

I fell madly in love, like the naive girl I am.

Then he left me high and dry.

Turns out, I was nothing more than a business plan for billionaire playboy, Marcus Tandem.

He needed to be married in order to obtain his grandfathers business, and I was the poor victim in his path.

I believed in what we had, until the truth reared its ugly head.

I never meant anything to Marcus. Not a damned thing.

With my world spinning on its axis, the girl I once was has long since died.

Instead he left me as this empty, emotionless shell.

I may have made a vow before God to love and cherish him ‘Til Death do we part, but it’s time for me to give back to Marcus, exactly what he gave me.

He has to pay.

And pay he will.


*This is part of a two book series and it will contain a HEA – Readers over 18+

As a book whore and a reviewer I have read many books where I have hated and loved a male character but never have I been at such a war with myself like I am now with Marcus Tandem.  I hate him so much but at the same time I love him and his character.  He is an asshole, a bastard for what he has done to Katia, and deserves a swift kick to the balls at the least.  At the same time, he is sexy as hell, an alpha male and even though what he did at the beginning was a major asshole move, he sacrificed his happiness,  and heart to protect her.  I love him despite all of those things I hated about the way he is, I love him because deep down he is a good man who does bad things and I love him because I know we haven’t seen all that Marcus Tandem truly is.  

Katia is sweet, trusting and totally in love with Marcus.  She is also naive to everything that is behind the reasons for their quick marriage and almost a little stupid for not questioning why Marcus is the way he is to her but at the same time never shows emotions or feelings towards her.  But now, now she is pissed off, hurt and out for revenge and I hope that her anger and need for revenge doesn’t cost her happiness later on.

I have said it before and I will say it again, I am a huge Bella Jewel fan and have not yet been disappointed by any of the books she has written.  Now this does have a cliff hanger so when you start please don’t get mad that we have to wait until the next book to find out what will happen.  It’s worth it trust me, and I hate cliffhangers (just ask my husband because the tantrum I throw rivals my three year old).  I cannot wait to find out when she plans on releasing book two because I am desperate for the next book like an addict for their next fix.  Make sure you add this to your TBR lists, and if you haven’t read any of Ms. Jewel’s books before, pick one up and see why I love her as much as I do.
