Book Blurb:
For nine years, they drift through life, unable to forget the one who holds the strings to their hearts. In an attempt to escape the pain of her past, Melanie finds herself trapped in a loveless marriage, while Daniel loses himself in a career that means nothing without Melanie by his side. Now, when their lives intersect, neither can deny the connection they felt so long ago. But will the power that drew them together be enough to heal the wounds from their past, and do they have the courage to overcome the insecurities and fears that threaten to keep them apart?
Pulled is a story of attraction and separation, of destiny and duty, of a love so strong it refuses to give up even when all others have.

My Thoughts:
Pulled by Amy Lichtenhan will surely make you feel different intense emotions from the beginning till the very last page! It wou…

· Tell us something about yourself. Something most of the readers don't know yet about you.
Besides being an author, I teach kindergarten. I took several years of piano and flute lessons. I also teach a dance routine every year for my daughter and her friends at their school talent show. I was also one of the five foundering members in a sorority called Kappa Zeta Phi at UC Irvine. For two years, I was PTA president (Parent Teacher Association).

· How and when did you start writing?


I started writing about 3 years ago when my grandmother passed away. It was a way for me to heal. After I started writing, I stopped crying.…

Blog Tour: Foxworth Coven by Kayden McLeod Guest Post and Giveaway

Hey my loves! I'm back! After a dreadful silence, I'm here again! And I'm so happy to have the author of Foxworth Coven Series, Ms. Kayden McLeod in my blog today. So I'm not making this any longer, let's see what she have to share for us today..


It’s All About The Sound Of Music

Dear Reader,


As many authors, I listen to a variety of music while writing. The type of music depends heavily on the mood I’m going for to inspire which direction my mind will go.

I can’t say a precise artist inspires something specific. It’s the song itself: the lyrics and the tone of voice used throughout it. For example, for those of you who are familiar with Sara Cornwall, from the Cornwall Coven Series and Sara’s Story—the last WIP I worked on for her is Darker Indulgences.
Sara is a complicated, conflicted character born of violence. She is bitter and hateful to outsiders, yet full of loving, protective emotion for those she trusts. While writing about her I listened to Eminem and Rihann…

ISBN (ebook): 978-1-61213-049-1


Summary:


Stephan has lived the lifestyle of a Dominant for five years. After several rebellious teenage years, it gave him the stability and control he had been seeking after his parent’s death.

As president of a not-for-profit foundation, he knows what his future holds and what he wants out of life. All that changes when a simple lunch with his college friend and Mentor, Daren, leads him to buying a slave.

Thrust into a situation he never thought he’d be in, Stephan can’t walk away. He is compelled to help this girl in the only way he knows how.

Brianna knows only one thing, she is a slave. She has nothing. She is nothing.

Can Stephan help Brianna realize that she is much more than just a Slave?

My Thoughts:
Slave is the first installment in Finding Ana series and this is also the first book I've read from Ms. Sherri Hayes. I can say that I'…

Blog Tour: Legacy:The Niteclif Evolutions by Denise Tompkins (Book Review and Giveaway)

Image
Hey my sweet readers! I've been MIA for the past few days but I am back! I'm back with a new blog tour. I'm featuring Legacy:The Niteclif Evolutions by Denise Tompkins. And now let's see what's this book is all about.

Legacy: The Niteclif Evolutions, Book 1 by Denise Tompkins 

Book Blurb:
When Fate makes you her bitch, accept it and adapt. Or die.

Looking back on the wish she made on Midsummer’s Eve, Maddy Niteclif should have been more specific. She only wanted to escape the shadowy nightmares that plagued her nights, not to be thrust into a completely altered reality.

If a strangely familiar, sexy dragon-shifter named Bahlin, who causes a never-to-be-mentioned-again fainting spell, isn’t enough to make her question her sanity, his insistence she’s the Niteclif ought to do the job. Prophesied super-sleuth of the supernatural world—a world that desperately needs her help—isn’t a job she’s remotely qualified for no matter what her family tree says.

Catapulted into a ver…

Krishna from Journey with Books Meeting Scarlett Valentine
Thanks for having me here today. I’ve really been looking forward to this. And thanks for letting me talk about my favorite subject— me!
I’m just kidding! I *really* don’t like talking about myself, but as an author, it’s part of introducing ourselves and our books to potential readers.
I’m Scarlett Valentine and I’m originally from Northern California. I don’t know at what point Ireland entered my mind. I just remember talking to my grandfather one day, telling him I wanted to learn Irish because I was going to Ireland one day and wanted to speak the language. I was heartbroken when he told me Irish was an …
