Cover Reveal~ My Soul Keeper by Ker Dukey

Title: My Soul Keeper
Author: Ker Dukey
Release: April 30, 2014
Goodreads Link:


What if your entire reality changed on you one day? You wake up and your family and friends aren't who you thought they were. You look around, and the world isn't what you thought it was. You don't even recognize yourself. You and your reality are a complete mystery to you. Simone's life was about to undergo that disturbing journey. Love, lust, death, betrayal. How do you fight the devil himself when he consumes you with lust? How can you love someone who has come to take back your brother’s soul? Shamar, soul keeper and son of Death, had never met such a unique soul before Simone. Captivated by her, he broke all rules to be near her -- to love and protect her. But how do you protect someone from evil when the forces of good seem to be working against you? When Lucifer himself crawled from Hell to claim Simone, what sacrifices would Shamar make to keep her safe?


Not seeing Simone all week left my craving for her unsatisfied and vibrating my blood with anticipation for when I could feed it again. New charges have kept me busy and the temptation to touch her when she was reaching out to me in her bedroom after the party nearly consumed and broke me. Distance was what I needed but now I need to see her again. I waited long enough; I have proven to myself that I’m strong and not a fool to human weakness.
Sensing her soul I appear close to her. She’s in a shop so I go to the coffee stool positioned opposite and order a drink. The girl serving me blushes when she hands me my change. I can sense her attraction to me; it radiates off her in waves and has her embarrassed because of it. I smile with a wink at her and drop the change into the tip jar. I hear her intake of breath and laugh quietly to myself as I turn and almost spill my cup onto Simone’s chest.
“Oh my go…,” she gasps and her eyes twinkle with recognition. A smile falls over her face, stilling my heartbeat. “We meet again.” Her soft musical voice flows.
“I’m sorry I nearly scalded your…” I look down at her impressive chest and back to her face, which is tinted with the pink flush from my gaze.
“Body,” I offer with a shake of my head, which earns me a giggle. It nearly floors me. Pulling a stray hair from her mouth, she watches my movements. Parting her lips, her tongue darts out to moisten them; I caress her
bottom lip with the pad of my thumb, taking the hair with it across to her cheek. There’s an electrical storm erupting inside my body. Her eyes are glazed; everything around us has fallen into silence, we are the only two who exist in this moment.
My thumb retraces it journey to her mouth with a press of her lips she kisses it. My whole body crackles and tingles. She’s turned on and it magnifies my own arousal. Leaning forward without thought of consequence, I touch my lips to hers. Her body melts into mine; the taste of her red lips is like the sweetest forbidden fruit. The warmth of her tongue slips into my mouth and I meet it with my own: grasping her face deepening the kiss. Her supple body moulds further into mine, her breasts pushing against my chest, our hips pushing into each other’s. The whole world falls away and I feel like Heaven has claimed me and this is it; she is my Heaven.
“Holy shit!” a voice shouts out, ringing in my ears.
Simone pulls away, breathless, her pouty red lips still slightly open and swollen from my kiss. Her eyes roam my face with bewilderment. “That was…”
“Amazing,” I finish her sentence.
Her friend grabs her shoulders and turns her from my gaze. It breaks the spell. I notice we have gathered an audience as were standing in the middle of the mall making out like we were in a private room. She looks around and drops her face to the floor, embarrassed. Lifting her chin, I whisper, “Never look down Simone, only up.” I bring my lips to her forehead before walking away once again.

Fragile Truths

D H Sidebottom

♥ Synopsis ♥

***WARNING*** This book contains explicit sex scenes and strong language. No rape or sexual violence is included, however it does feature scenes with extreme violence and cruelty. 

To live is to suffer; to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering. Friedrich Nietzsche 

The bitterness is consuming. Its intensity slashes and claws at my insides, its hatred wrenching my soul as it curls and nurtures my need for revenge. 
His torture only feeds my vice. I won’t let him break me, only strengthen me. 
The pain he gives is welcomed, its rawness fueling the loathing inside with each of his thrashes and tears on my pale skin, with every harsh truth he breathes in my ear and with each of his crippling holds. 
I have waited too long for this and I'll never let the bastard win. He will have to end me before I give in. 
But now he has a weapon against me. Something I swore throughout my life I would never let in; 

Her strength astounds me. He doesn't seem to break her. 
His relentless persecution and determination to bury her under his furious reign and brutality eats at my soul. It has found that dark place inside me, the pit of hell I had locked and secured away, and enriched it, demanded its flourish and ripened its ferocity. The family wrath. 
She'll never give in, and I pray every night as I guide her through the darkness that tomorrow will bring the light to her soul before it is consumed, finally, by the plague of him; 

She blossoms under my torture, the soft suppleness of her skin ripping and tearing as though her soul is trying to break free from the agony. 
I'll allow it, because I can. Because I need her soul. I crave the sustenance it feeds my rage with, my thirst for cruelty quenched by the sounds of her desolate screams and my hunger for blood, nourished by the slow drip of her life force at my feet. 
She thinks I won't break her, so does he. They underestimate the blood that slithers through my veins. It's sustained by pain and suffering. It's the blood that tenures those around me. 
The Bloodthirsty. 
The Shadows of Sin.

~REVIEW~ The Scars Of Us by Nikki Navrvaez

                    The Scars Of Us by Nikki Narvaez Review

    Kaiya Marlow has always been cautious, precise in every decision she makes. When her dark past threatens to resurface, she decides to take precautions to protect herself by enrolling in self-defense classes at her gym.

Her instructor, Ryker Campbell, is the tattooed womanizer everyone warns about. Kaiya attempts to resist Ryker's advances, but the more time they spend training together, the harder it is for Kaiya to resist him.

Ryker's view on relationships is simple: strictly sex, nothing more. Haunted by demons from his past, he never allows himself to become attached to any woman. No attachment means no weakness, no vulnerability, no pain. He doesn't realize that his whole world is about to be turned upside down when Kaiya enters his self-defense class. Determined to have her, at least for one night, Ryker sets a plan into motion that will change both of their lives forever.

Will love be able to heal their scars, or are they too deep to overcome?    

                                                                     ~Laveda's Review~

This is a story about two people who have been hurt and are a little, ok a lot, gun shy when it comes to relationships.  Kaiya had a horrific childhood filled with sexual abuse from someone she was supposed to be able to trust, Ryker had some shady things done to him by the woman he loved and someone he was also supposed to be able to trust. Kaiya pushes people away and doesn’t trust easily, that’s why she doesn’t do relationships, the other part is because she’s too messed up to bring someone into her life. (So she thinks) Ryker doesn’t trust women because he’s been burned in the worst way by the woman who was supposed to love him. He doesn’t sleep with same woman twice and is also kind of a jerk towards them too. All of that changes when Kaiya comes along, she’s not like the women he’s use to and she doesn’t try to jump in bed with him after 30mins. After a lot of persuasion and not giving up, on Ryker’s part, Kaiya decides to give in and go on a date with him. It’s back and forth between the two after that. On again, off again. Trying to heal the scars and the pain left behind by others is a hard thing to do, but with enough love and patience it’s possible. This story had great sex scenes (HOT) and I really enjoyed the characters. I would have loved to have known more about Ryker’s background story. I really did like it, I loved the story and the issues it brought up, I also loved how I learned a little about self-defense, but I just couldn’t get over the fact that it brought in his past, but didn’t explore it. All in all it was a very good read and I would recommend it to friends. I give The Scars Of Us 4 stars

Release Blitz~Giveaway Throttle Me by Chelle Bliss

Men of Inked Series Book #1

Suzy’s a control freak and has her life mapped out - work hard, find a man with a stable job, and live happily ever after. She’s content with the status quo, but her plan comes to a screeching halt when he enters her life and turns it upside down. City gave up on love when his heart was crushed in college, preferring to be the typical bachelor. He spends his nights hopping from one bed to another and his days working at his family tattoo shop, Inked. A chance encounter on a dark road makes him question what he had sworn off forever – a relationship. A night of passion and lust causes them to question everything. Is City the knight in shining armor to the damsel in distress? Can their relationship survive when a fantasy falls apart and a secret comes out that changes everything?
“Do you swear?” I asked as she set the glass back on the bar.
“What?” She gaped at me.
“Do you swear? Simple question. You’ve said ‘heck’ and ‘friggin’’ so far, but nothing dirty.”
“Oh, um, yeah, I swear.” Her cheeks turned pink and a small smile spread across her face. “I’m just used to watching my words with the kids around all day.”
“Prove it,” I said as I stared in her blue sapphire eyes.
“What? Why?”
“Cause I need to know if it’s in you. Are you all good girl or is there more under there dying to come out?” I hid the smile and laughter that was so close to breaking free from my lips. The pink of her cheeks spread across her face. I know I embarrassed her, but fuck, I needed to know if I stood a chance.
“Yes, I swear. What do you think I am? I’m not a child, City.” She glared at me as she raised the drink to her lips and wrapped them around the rim. Fuck I wanted those lips wrapped around my shaft, taking me deep and sucking me off.
“Never said you were, babe. Do you drink besides tonight?” I asked, now smiling because I knew she was upset. I liked the fire I saw in her eyes when I pointed out her good girl qualities – she obviously didn’t like being labeled.
“Sometimes. I’m just responsible. I don’t drink and drive. My dad used to be a cop and it was drilled into my head at an early age.” The words she spoke hit me like a ton of bricks. Drunk driving was the one thing in the world that caused my blood to boil.
Good girl teacher with a cop father? Just my luck. “Nothin’ wrong with that. Virgin daiquiris aren’t always your thing, then?”
“Why? Do I have to be a drinker? I mean does it make me less of an adult?”
“No, Suzy. Just trying to get a feel for who you are – what you are.”

About the Author
 AJ Walters is a new contemporary romance author who has just made her first appearance on to the indie circuit. Having interests in history, romance and elements of erotica, she has brought all of these together in her debut publication; An Acute Attraction.
Wanting to break the trend of size 12 virgins in books, A J Walters has introduced a new real woman in Isabel Chambers. She's a size 18-20, working single mother who now feels is it her time to start living her life again. At the ripe young age of 39, A J Walters also wanted to show that you can experience everything that a twenty-something would.
"I saw that a 39 year old isn't quite at retirement age for fun, sex and finding love again. There are so many women out there that can be represented in books as well as the slim, innocent and beautiful types. Don't get me wrong I love reading books with them in, but there is so many of them around now I felt it is time for something different. I'd like to think I brought my sense of humour across in it as well. I am ditsy, I suffer from 'foot in mouth' syndrome, but I can also be serious and sentimental. From the feedback I've had, apparently it makes for a great writing voice."
A J Walters currently live in Staffordshire, England with her two children.

My Review

5 out of 5 awesome stars

When I first read the synopsis of this book, I was intrigued. I had never read a crime romance before and wasn't sure what to expect. Well, to be truthful, I thought the two main characters, Derrick and Kate, would fall in love and solve crimes together.

Yeah, that's not really how it goes.

Kate and Derrick are both beautifully damaged people, and as we learn of the things they have lived through and follow them through events that happen, you begin to love them both. Derrick is a great book boyfriend. Sometimes you get that warm feeling reading about him, and other times you want to just smack the crap out of him. I love Derrick. And Kate! Oh, sweet, sweet Kate. A beautiful soul who has seen too much in life. Sarah has a way of developing these characters right in front of you and leave you wanting so much more. My eyes couldn't read these pages fast enough!

This book deals with some serious events, and the way they were told gives you a peek into Sarah's psychology background. It is rare you have the opportunity to read an event of that magnitude that is so eloquently written. 

I love this book, and I love Sarah. I cannot wait until the next book, Tainted Pictures, is released April 18th. 

I would recommend this book to anyone 18 and up.

Tour Stop~ Conduit by Angie Martin

Available on on March 5, 2014

Martin pulls you into an entirely different view of psychics that you have never read before! - J. Dylan

From the first words that are elegantly woven, Martin captures your interest and pulls your attention away from life and into the world of Emily Monroe. - A. Dennis

- Martin uniquely delves into the mind of a serial killer with a twist that is unlike any other. - C. Rose


Emily Monroe conceals her psychic gift from the world, but her abilities are much too strong to keep hidden from a killer who shares her powers.
A savvy private investigator, Emily discreetly uses her gift to solve cases. When the police ask her to assist on a new case, she learns the killer they seek is not only psychic, but fixated on her. He uses his victims as conduits to communicate with her, and she hears their screams while they are tortured. She opens her mind to help the victims, but it gives him a portal that he uses to lure her to him. With the killer taking over her mind, she must somehow stop him before she becomes his next victim.

Angie Martin has studied criminal behavior and forensics for most of her life, which comes through in the incredible detail in the book. In college, she was a member of the American Criminal Justice Association, LAE, and won trophies in regional competition in crime scene investigation as well as two testing areas.
The author of the well-received suspense novel, False Security, takes the concept of “psychic” to an all-new, terrifying plane with her thriller, Conduit. Starring private investigator Emily Monroe, Conduit pits Emily’s psychic abilities against an equally gifted serial killer who tries to take over her mind and lure her to him. The book returns readers to the Midwest city of Wichita for a suspenseful, thrilling ride they will not soon forget.


False Security – suspense novel. 359 pgs.

Available on Amazon for Kindle - 

Book Blurb:

Rachel Thomas longs for normalcy, but if she stops running she could die…or worse. Chased by a past that wishes to imprison her, haunted by dreams that seek to destroy her, Rachel finds solace in a love she could not predict. A love she cannot deter.
Mark Jacobson is the man who never needed love. He has his bookstore, his bachelorhood, and his freedom. In the moment he meets Rachel, he is swept into a world he didn’t know existed. One filled with the purest of love. One filled with betrayal, lies, and murder.
Now Rachel and Mark are forced to face her past. The truth may kill them both.

The Many Genres of Conduit

Many books today cross genre boundaries, but I never dreamed I would write a book that crosses so many of them. Conduit can easily fit into several genres: thriller, suspense, paranormal, crime, mystery…and yet it doesn’t fit entirely into any of them. I love it when a reader outside of these genres try out the book and find that there are many elements of the book that resemble the books they normally read.

When I started writing Conduit, I knew it would be a thriller. When you have a serial killer, that’s a pretty easy initial genre determination. I wanted to be sure to keep up those thrills throughout the book and build the suspense, but what I found difficult was offsetting the darkness in the book with light. As the characters developed, I found the characters had moments of humor which were a nice surprise in contrasting the moments of evil.

Even more surprising was the blossoming relationship between Emily and Jake. I like to think that it surprises readers, too, in that they don’t expect to find such a strong love story running through the pages of a book with a psychic serial killer. As I continued writing, I fell in love with the idea of Emily and Jake in love, and I watched their relationship grow, much as the reader does when they read. The idea of them as a couple always puts a smile on my face, and I spent a lot of time making sure that their story bleeds love through the pages. For me, Conduit isn’t just a thriller, or a paranormal psychic story, or a crime story of the cops hunting for a killer. It’s a love story, one that I want my readers to enjoy as much as I do.

Author bio:


Hi, my name is Teodora and I live in London with my husband Ted and my son Jason. I've been writing ever since I can remember, but it became my full time job in 2010 when I decided that everything else I've tried bores me to death and I have to do what I've always wanted to do, but never had the guts to fully embrace. I've been a journalist, an editor, a personal assistant and an interior designer among another things, but as soon as the novelty of the new, exciting job wears off, I always go back to writing. Being twitchy, impatient, loud and hasty are not qualities that help a writer, because I have to sit alone, preferably still, and write for most of the day, but I absolutely love it. It's the only time that I'm truly at peace and the only thing I can do for more than ten minutes at a time - my son has a bigger attention span than me.
When I'm procrastinating, I like to go to the gym, cook Italian meals (and eat them), read, listen to rock music, watch indie movies and True Blood re-runs. Or, in the worst case scenario, get beaten at every Wii game by a six year old.
