Blurb

The Devil’s Dust MC has a list of new threats to the club’s lifestyle. Dani, to prove her loyalty, is trying to embrace a part of herself that she never knew existed until now. A sinful beast lurking beneath her surface has been awakened and is ready to eliminate anyone that stands in its way. Looking at her stained hands, she rinses the blood from them. She resigns herself to innocence lost and welcomes her thirst for more blood.

After a breathtaking turn of events, Shadow is looking at life in a different perspective. Not knowing who he can trust or who he can forgive has left him feeling desolate and alone. As Shadow is laying behind his rifle, he wonders if he can pull the trigger to eliminate the threat. He takes a deep breath and squeezes the trigger, the rifle recoil ignites the fuel that drives him.

Retaliations will be required.

Boundaries will be shattered.

Redemption will be lost.

Betrayal so deep, yet they still yearn for one another. Can Shadow overlook Dani’s transgressions? Can Dani overlook the mistrust that Shadow has placed upon her?

5 stars

OMG I love love love this mc series!!! I devoured the first book and couldn’t wait for The Scars That Define Us. You definitely need to read What Doesn’t Destroy Us (Book 1) before reading this one. The Scars That Define Us picks up right where What Doesn’t Destroy Us left off. Dani knows that she has to prove her innocence to the club and Shadow for what went down with her mother. However, Shadow has a hard time letting her back in and doesn’t fully trust her even though he still loves her. It was so heartbreaking to watch because Shadow was completely destroyed when he thought Dani had betrayed him. I absolutely love Shadow, even though there were a few times I wanted to whop him over the head and yell at him. He is so completely and utterly in love with Dani that there is not a thing he wouldn’t do for her. She has the power to bring him to his knees. And he deserves a woman who is strong and his back through all the hard times. But the question is, can Dani be that woman? Will Shadow ever be able to trust her again? Can they work through their issues?

I will now be stalking M.N. Forgy’s page once again for the next book in this series! This is absolutely one of my favorite mc series ever! I love M.N. Forgy and her flawless writing style! Definitely check out this series! I give it 5+++ stars!!!

reminiscencecover

remexcerpt

In the midst of dragging trees, I saw Sarenah sitting on the back porch, her dress hiked up around her thighs from the heat as she was thumbing through a book. She wasn’t even acknowledging the fact that I was there, nor did she care that I could see her bare legs. She was being totally inappropriate and rude at the same time … and I liked it. I felt intrigued to my very core, so much that I had to go over and say something to her.
“Hey,” I mumbled.
Without looking up, she reiterated, “Hey.”
My frustration grew as I clenched my fingers into my palms. “Is that book so interesting that you can’t even talk to me?”
That had gotten her attention. She slammed the book shut and stood up, the dress falling back down around her ankles.
“Are you so interesting that I can’t even read my book?” Her dark eyes were wild and she was glaring at me as if she wanted me to spontaneously combust. “Don’t you have a job to do? Look at this mess.” Her eyes moved to the yard. “All of these branches everywhere. My uncle will have your hide.”
She was so angry. I couldn’t help myself. I wiped the sweat from my brow with the back of my hand and busted out laughing.
Sarenah’s hands moved to her hips. I thought she was about to hit me.
I threw up hands up in defense. “I’m …” The laughter got the best of me again. “I’m sorry, Sarenah.” I flashed her an apologetic grin. “It’s just, I think this is the first time I’ve ever heard you talk so much and you’re spatting off at me like some crazy person.”
Her gaze had softened then. She bit her bottom lip so she wouldn’t crack a smile herself. “A crazy person, huh?”
I nodded, stopping to really get a good look at Sarenah’s face, her stunning features and the way her dark eyes popped out in a terrific way. This was Rebecca’s sister? I had been missing out. Sarenah’s strange ways evaporated into enticement before me.
I spent the rest of the evening listening to Sarenah talk as I took all of it in. The tree branches were still scattered all over the yard, but I doubted her uncle would be back anytime soon to discover the mess. Everyone knew he lived at the saloon. She talked mostly about her parents. She had a deep ache from the loss inside of her. She was in a great deal of pain that I felt my own heart hurting along with hers, for her. I found myself wrapping my arm around her and her actually letting me get away with it, but I wasn’t in it to try to make a move. I found myself wanting to comfort Sarenah, tell her everything was going to be okay. I wanted her to trust me and continue to confide in me. She leaned her head against my shoulder, being content to be there with me. It felt incredible as if I had been able to tame her so easily. She was feisty but now so serene. I could’ve lived in that moment forever and been completely content to just be lucky enough to be near her, to smell the flower fragrance in her hair as it fell down across my arm. I rubbed her shoulder with my fingertips. She started humming, the sound making the chaos within me only increase. It was in that moment that I had leaned over and my lips found hers. It had been brief but magnificent, and I was wondering if my mind was ever going to be the same.

Blitz: The Relics 2 by John Dawson Jackson

 

 

BLURB

 

Chicago is in ruins. True evil has been unleashed upon the world, but no one seems to believe…
 

 

Milo and Killian attempt to free themselves from the madness David Wormwood left behind, but they quickly find themselves searching for the answer to an unknown riddle, something that has to do with a cult and the saying, “In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king.”

 

 

 

 

The hunter is back from hell with the love of his life Laura, but has he really escaped the clutches of the demonic forces he sabotaged? He’ll find out somewhere in the bayous of Louisiana and inside the pages of a legendary book.

 

 

 

 

Abigail Williams has finally found the power she sought, but she doesn’t understand. Why doesn’t she feel good? Why doesn’t she feel immortal? And why does she keep pondering the question: Will the Pendulum swing towards who is right, or who is left?

 

 

 

 

John Dawson Jackson returns to the first book of his career with new stories, new characters, and plenty of bloodshed. If you were a fan of The Relics, prepare to be amazed!
 

 

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Born in a ditch beside a busy highway, John Dawson Jackson never knew his parents. Taken in by wealthy philanthropists Mr. and Mrs. Cornelius Elmo Jackson, he was trained from the age of two in classical piano. A horrible accident left his arm damaged, ending his dream before it began. He was forced to undertake control of his adopted father’s oil business, a company that allowed him to travel the globe and explore the far reaches of civilization. As he studied the ancient carvings of the Mesopotamians, he realized just how much of our history has been covered up by powerful people. These findings have been collected into his new novel The Relics 2. Or maybe that’s a lie…maybe this is true… John Dawson Jackson is an independent author based out of the Knoxville, TN area who has a broad spectrum of interests. Predominantly, his novels integrate the genres of fantasy, history, and horror with intriguing mind bending qualities. All of his works are based in the supernatural and exist within the same universe–a sometimes frightening, but always exhilarating place where Jackson enjoys playing with the interconnectivity of what is real, myth, and rumor. His most recent novel, The Relics 2, charts a path through history, blending both fact and fiction as ancient objects of power shape lives and bring together some of the most interesting and terrifying characters the world has ever seen as they realize their collective destinies.

If you are wondering who I am, then I’m here to tell you. Timberlyn is the sweeter alter ego of New York Times bestselling author Nicole Edwards.
I can hear the question now… Why? Why do you have another pen name?
It actually came about when a storyline developed in my head. As I saw it coming together, I knew it was vastly different than what Nicole Edwards writes. So, it was then that I was created.
Anyway… Thanks for stopping by. I’m so glad you did.

Blog Tour: Native Lands by P.C. Zick

Native Lands by P.C. Zick
Native Lands is a gripping and
entertaining thriller with depth, wonderful characters and well-planted
parallels between the two engaging narratives. There is a beautiful and warm
feel of Native Lands and an excellent and uplifting moral that
won’t lecture or patronize. A truly great read.

Christoph
Fischer, Author
 
Native Lands is a
novel rich in intrigue and history as a tribe of Native Americans, thought to
be extinct, fight to save their beloved heritage. They join with others willing
to sacrifice everything to save further destruction of the Everglades and St.
Augustine.
 
Forbidden loves, deceptions, and murder threaten to destroy
nature and families in a saga stretching from the 1760s to the present day.
 
Join Locka and Mali as they lead their tribe of Timucuans
away from the Spanish near St. Augustine in 1760 and settle into a new life in
the Everglades alongside the Calusa Indians. Their progeny grow up in the
Everglades, attempting to keep their bloodlines pure.
 
By 2010, Mangrove Mike, Joey Cosmos, and Rob Zodiac live
among the white people and learn that the human connection transcends the fear
of extinction of their people. Barbara Evans in the Everglades and Emily Booth
in St. Augustine are the glue as the different cultures combine forces to fight
a conglomerate of international interests.
 
It’s a dangerous journey as this oddly matched group attempts
to halt the destruction of the natural world they treasure. Cultural boundaries
established centuries ago are erased as love and nature seek the balance lost
during the battle for power and control of the last of the Florida frontier.
 
P.C. Zick is the
author of several contemporary novels. Native
Lands
is the third book in her Florida Fiction Series, which also includes Tortoise Stew and Trails in the Sand. She may be contacted through her website at
http://www.pczick.com.
Barbara Evans sat in the living room of her
house on the western edge of Chokoloskee Island, leafing through past issues of
Sierra magazine, searching for an
idea for her next column. She listened to the news from the television, only
looking up when the local weather presented NOAA’s prediction for an active
hurricane season. Then the newscaster began a report that caused Barbara to put
down the magazine and devote her full attention to the screen.
“Yesterday, wood storks in Big Cypress
Wildlife Management Area attacked a young boy as his mother shot this video of
the assault,” the announcer said.
Barbara watched as a boy, approximately ten
years old, was crying as a wood stork’s beak poked at the Mickey Mouse portrait
stamped on the front of his T-shirt. Another stork approached and began nudging
the foam snout of the alligator hat on the boy’s head. A man ran into the frame
of the video, yelling and scaring off the wood storks as the boy howled.
“Officers from Florida’s Fish and Wildlife
Commission are handling the situation. Here to talk with us is the agency’s
spokesperson, Larry Castle. Larry, what’s your agency doing to make sure the
tourists are safe in the Everglades?”
“Along with the National Park Service and the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, we’re asking residents and visitors to our
great state to keep their distance from wildlife,” Larry said, wearing a green
shirt and hat with the logo from the state’s fish and wildlife agency. “They
shouldn’t feed wildlife or make any attempts to capture or touch them.”
“The parents say the wood storks just came up
and attacked their child,” the newscaster said.
“Wildlife usually keeps to itself unless
tempted by food. We’re investigating, but the safest thing anyone can do is to enjoy
wildlife from a distance with a zoom lens on the camera.
“Thank you, Larry. The family told us they
are cutting short their vacation because of this unwarranted aviary violence.
Governor Rick Scott offered the family a week’s stay in Miami to make up for
the attack, but the family declined the offer.”
“My son may never get over this attack.” The
mother, wearing a white visor with a Minnie Mouse label on the front, appeared
on the screen. “His favorite hat is now in shreds in the swamp. It has been one
horrible experience.”
The newscaster came back on the screen. “The
video of the attack was recorded by the mother on her cell phone.”
Barbara ran her fingers through her short
curly red hair, and with the other hand reached for her phone to call Stan
Hogan, her editor at The Miami Herald.
“Stan, I’ve got to write the story about the
wood stork attacking the family at Big Cypress,” Barbara said. “You’ve got to
let me do it.”
“If I let you write the article, it’s off limits
for your column,” Stan said. “You write an objective piece, but no
editorializing. Agreed?”
“Then I can write a column about it in a few
weeks.”
“No. You’ve been hired as a columnist. If you
want to go back to reporting, then we’ll start you on covering the commission
meetings in the communities around Lake Okeechobee.”
“Come on, Stan. You know I can write a good
piece. I don’t know why you won’t let me.”
“That’s my final say on the subject. You
write your column or you start working the Glades County beat.”
“All right, all right.” Barbara knew being
assigned the rural beat near the shores of Lake Okeechobee amounted to a death
sentence for a writer. “The column is better because I can ask, ‘why the hell
was the mother recording the attack instead of protecting her child?’ The kid
deserved getting attacked just for wearing that stupid alligator hat. Tell them
to pull the column I wrote for this week. I’ll have the new one to you later
this afternoon.”
“No ‘those tourists deserved it’ crap. You
got me into a load of trouble with that last piece about the pigeons and doves
at that wedding in Disney World. One of the copy editors should have caught the
line ‘anyone who chooses to get married in the land of Mickey Mouse deserves
dead doves floating down during the vows.’”
“I can’t help it if nature keeps biting
back,” Barbara said. “Just be sure they pull my old column.”
 
P.C. Zick began her writing career in 1998 as a journalist. She’s won
various awards for her essays, columns, editorials, articles, and fiction. She
describes herself as a “storyteller” no matter the genre.
She was born in Michigan and moved to Florida in 1980. Even though she now
resides in western Pennsylvania with her husband Robert, she finds the stories
of Florida and its people and environment a rich base for her storytelling
platform. Florida’s quirky and abundant wildlife—both human and animal—supply
her fiction with tales almost too weird to be believable.
She writes two blogs, P.C. Zick
and Living Lightly. She has published
three nonfiction books and six novels.
Her writing contains the elements most dear to her heart, ranging from love
to the environment. In her novels, she advances the cause for wildlife
conservation and energy conservation. She believes in living lightly upon this
earth with love, laughter, and passion.

50% of sales for Chartreuse

& This Christmas are being donated to the Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter in

Ridener’s hometown of Corbin, KY.  The shelter suffered a fire in November

2013 which destroyed their home and claimed the lives of several cats and dogs,

including their beloved mascot, Sassy.  They are seeking to get kennels

for the new shelter.  One of the main characters in Chartreuse, Rowan

Kelly, is a vet, and Ridener feels there isn’t a more perfect cause for the

sales to be donated towards.  In April, she donated $300 to The Trevor

Project and The Ronald McDonald House through the success of her first M/M

romance novel.  She’d like to thank you in advance for your support.

 

 

T.E. Ridener entered the world in the magnificent year of 1985. She’s an avid reader, crazy writer, and photoshop addict. She started writing stories at a young age, and will probably do so until she takes her last breath. Forever the daydreamer, not a day passes in which Miss Ridener isn’t working on something book related. Her books may be a work of fiction, but there is a lot of truth in each one.

Creating relatable characters and believable storylines mixed in with make-believe is what she is best known for. She always includes a strong female lead, a compassionate male, and tons of every day events that readers will be able to connect with. Miss Ridener is a lover of music, movies, TV shows, and her family.

During the months of November and December, she participates in the charity she helped create called Random Acts of Christmas, an online program geared towards making Christmas happen for families in need. In 2013, they gave over $69,000 in gifts to kids who otherwise would not have had presents to open on Christmas morning. Coming from a childhood of poverty, T.E. understands that life isn’t always easy and she has experienced living from paycheck to paycheck. This has fueled her drive to always lend a helping hand in every form possible. She is very active in the group “Books for Troops”, a program designed to send ebooks and paperbacks to soldiers currently serving overseas.

T.E. Ridener is the youngest of 3 children, a surviving twin, and an extremely proud aunt. She claims to be married to her books and the characters she creates are her kids. Thus far, she has produced three ongoing series entitled Blood Betrayal (vampires), The Kadenburg Shifters Series (bear-shifters), and The Descendants (elementals). There are loads more and new ones popping up each day. She LOVES her fans and readers, and not a single one of them appear as a number to her. She knows that without them, she wouldn’t be where she is today. Every day is a new possibility, a new adventure, and a new dream. Life doesn’t get any better than that.

I’m a Happily Married, MUM of 2 very loved children. One is a teenager… so far (fingers crossed) a great one.
I LOVE Music… I should do as I am the daughter of Musicians; I was reared with a Guitar in one hand and a pen in the other.
I’m originally from London and am now living somewhere, in the Irish countryside, with cows (the four legged kind) as neighbours. We live on a small farm in a village (no I do not DO milking or anything farmy… I have nails lol).
I’ve had the big high-flying career and gave it and London. up for ‘LOVE’ (yep sucker lol) and would do it again a hundred times over to marry and have babies.
I have lived in Ireland for the last sixteen years and I love the peace and quiet that we have here, it’s a wonderful place to raise children. I do NOT own wellies (gumboots) as the city girl that is still trapped in me, won’t allow it… SO… I wear riding boots instead. I may actually be the unofficial Imelda Marcos of Ireland with the amount of shoes I own (insert Shoegasm here).
I began writing professionally in January 2013 and now I’m releasing my fourth book. I write fun, naughty, not so hearts and flowers stories. My all time favorite writing hero is Clive Cussler. I love action and suspense, which probably influences my own writing greatly; hence I’m NOT a hearts and flowers kind of girl.
I love humour and try to use it as often as I can in any situation… I think life is too short to NOT try anything new. I’m a fun, loyal person and believe in Karma, so I try to treat people how I would like to be treated… after all, it takes much more to be nasty to someone rather than just to be nice…

Blog Tour: Pieces of Paisley by Leigh Ann Lunsford w/reviews

popbannertour

popsynop

Paisley Hull fell in love at sixteen; the forever kind of love: unexpected, passionate, consuming – her first. She never thought she could walk away from that kind of passion. Ignoring her heart, guided by her head, she never looked back.

Blindsided by the beauty of a tiny, hazel-eyed vixen, Jake Grant fell head over heels in love, vowing to keep her protected and not let his past taint her. He may have been overzealous in his attempts to show her how much he cherished her but he never thought she would walk away without a fight.

Nine years later, a now divorced Jake has a chance encounter with an engaged Paisley just a few short weeks before she is set to walk down the aisle. Wondering if they gave up too easily, the two embark on a journey through the jagged edges of their past. Can they overcome the obstacles to finally become one or is it too late for their second chance?

Leigh Ann Lunsford’s best work yet. This book made me feel so many emotions. I felt excited to watch first love bloom, worried when Pasiley felt smothered and couldn’t be herself, sad, angry, glad, amazed, hopeful, turned on, and blown away. This read is a wonderful emotional rollercoaster and I cried excited tears, sad tears, made tears, and happy tears through out the entire story. Pieces of Paisly is amazing and one of my best reads of 2014 ( I’ve read over 500 books this year). I wish I could give it ten stars.
Paisly fell in love with Jake when she was 16 but she’s a old soul. He was her first everything. The emotions a girl feels for her first love are hard to describe but they can be epic. This was a epic love until it became a smothering love. Jake fell for the hazel eyed vixen but he resisted at first because of the age difference and the fact that he’s in the military and gets deployed a lot. Eventually Jack decides to have a relationship with Paisley. At first it’s beautiful and wonderful with just a few bumps in the road. Jake wants what’s best for Paisley but forgets to ask her instead he tells her. E entirely Paisley decides that she has lost who she is and walks away. Jake realizes the pressure he has put her through and decides that she needs to be allowed to be a teenager and experience life.
Jake moves on a lot quicker than Paisley but this gives her the gumption to move forward with her life. She gets to experience life, makes friends, lovers,travels, and moves. We get to see Paisley find herself and put the pieces of her life back together again.

Flash forward 9 years and Jake is now divorced and runs into a engaged Paisley. Its close to her wedding date. Can Jake convince Pasiley to give thier love a second chance? Can Paisley forgive Jake and move forward? Is it too late for these two?
Thier love is a soul mate love that we all wish we could have but Leigh Ann shows us that we are still human and can screw it up. Pasiley’s journey to find hersel was a wonderful emotional rollercoaster ride. I’m was pissed at first that Jake and Pasliey allowed it to slip through thier fingers so easily but Pasiley needed to grow up and experience life. Readers get to see how much this journey changes and matures Pasiley. Maybe know she’s ready for her soul mate but she needs to learn to forgive first. I can’t wait to see what Leigh Ann Lunsgord writes for us next. I’m sure it will be amazing.

I love Leigh Ann’s writing but this story blows the other books out of the water! Page one will grab you and hold on to you and not let go until you read the very last sentence. Paisley and Jake’s story just flows through the pages and you are yelling, screaming, laughing, crying, any and every emotion you can think of is going through your mind. Paisley is a take no bull kind of girl, which I freaking love. Jake is a take no kind of bull guy, which makes them butt heads a lot. They are perfect for each other from the first moment they look into each other’s eyes, but we all know that would be a crap shoot story. So this begins the give and take, love and fight of the story. Paisley is younger than Jake physically but in reality her mind is so much more mature than her 17 year old body, she knows what she wants and when she wants it. She can take more than anyone will give her, she just wants to live her life on her terms and that’s something she is fighting everyone in her life for. Jake is in the Navy and feels that it’s now or never with Paisley, he tries to control her too much to the point that he’s hurting more than helping her. The banter these two through back and forth with each I love, very realistic, like the way you’d talk to your partner. Things aren’t always what they seem and these two need to fight for each other to save what great love they have found, but when push comes to shove can they make it? Will they see past all the flaws, all the insecurities? Paisley tries to live a full, happy life but never really feels it. Jake lives his life but Paisley is a constant whether or she is there or not. This story is beautifully written, it truly is a love story with all the ups and downs. It broke my heart into a million pieces, only to Leigh Ann put it back together again but with more love than before. Paisley and Jake make you want that everlasting love, the kind that can never be broken, even when you think it’s lost forever, it always there. Leigh Ann really outdid herself with this book, a perfect story with your emotions in a roller coaster seat. Thank you Leigh Ann for writing this beautiful story that has captured my heart!! Keep writing, because I’ll read your words forever.
