nightlife-new-york-cbl-blog-toursSynopsis ::

Vampires, strippers, escorts, night clubs, gangs, pimps and corrupt cops, the Nightlife of New York is never boring.

Is she a beautiful blond guardian angel as he imagined, or something else entirely? When Michelle saves Aaron’s life she shares the benefits of her blood (after getting him shot accidentally). He awakes a changed man, living in a purgatory of eternal night, never to see the sunrise again.

Michelle drags Aaron through a hardcore learning curve of vampiric slavery. Forced to adapt to servitude, Aaron is subject to her authority of compulsion. She orders him around like a puppet on a string, a dog on a very short leash. First things first, he must learn to feed properly without creating bloodslaves (humans addicted to the powerful drug-like effect of their venomous bite).

And then she puts him to work-a male escort in the sex trade-same as Michelle. Aaron walks a tightrope of strictly controlled feeding regiments and intensely erotic sexual adventures while catering to the neurotic control-freak tendencies of his new master. It’s do or die, Michelle vows to eliminate him if he proves too difficult to control. The real kicker-amidst all these shocking an

d degrading adjustments, Aaron finds he’s falling in love.

Can he maintain and keep a sliver of his humanity intact? Innocence is a luxury few can afford in the decadent nightlife of New York. In a world where sex, blood, and power over women is so readily accessible, Aaron struggles against the predatory instincts deeply rooted in his new psyche. He must find his way quickly, practicing rigid self-control, or risk the consequences of Michelle’s wrath.

Synopsis ::nightlife-las-vegas1
Vampires, Aaron Pilan and his master Michelle, live by one rule — no bloodslaves. EVER. Aaron breaks that rule when he meets Anastasia. All Anastasia wants is to be loved and cherished, but the predatory men she’s attracted to bring her only pain and abuse. Escaping one train-wreck relationship for another, she finds happiness with Aaron and Michelle as a bloodslave, a ‘pet’. When Aaron uses his telepathy to win thousands at the gambling tables, he attracts the deadly attention of the Colombian Cartel and Aaron and Michelle are ‘disappeared’. Addicted to the bite of her vampire lovers, Ana is desperate to find them. But, Las Vegas isn’t ready for vampires mixing heroin, sex and vengeance. Ana is trapped in the spiraling chaos.

Find out what happens in the second novel of the Nightlife Series.

bloodslaveSynopsis :: 
 
Her mother named her Esperanza de Salvador – Hope for Salvation. But when a girl works as an escort for Colombian cartel in the ghettos of Spanish Harlem, there wasn’t much hope, or salvation.

Hope’s telepathic ability keeps her a step ahead of ruin, but her unusual gift attracts the attention of a psychotic vampire bitch. Trapped in a Manhattan penthouse with the psycho, she thought she was dead meat.

Her survival lies in the hands of Vampire Master Enrique. He seems to respect her, perhaps even care. As a measure of protection, he makes her his personal Bloodslave. Helplessly addicted to his bite, Enrique rules her every moment. As always, Hope must adapt to survive.

Swept into the decadent nightlife of Manhattan’s elite, she falls in love with Enrique and prays someday he may grow to love her, too. But is it simply a relationship of convenience? Is she nothing more than a concubine desperate to satisfy his nightly demands for blood and sex?

And forever in the background is the fear that one day the cartel boss she abandoned will hunt her down to collect on old debts.

Nightlife Paris Cover Poll

Cover Reveal: The Love Game by Emma Hart

It’s with great pleasure that I am able to be part of this cover reveal for author Emma Hart’s The Love Game. The official release of this New Adult genre book is set for March 29, 2013.  Bloggers that would like to be part of the blog tour during the release can go here to sign up. And now I bring you the beautiful cover for The Love Game.

TLG COVER

Synopsis:

His challenge? Make her fall in love with him.

Her challenge? Play the player.

Until life changes the rules of the game.

Maddie Stevens hated Braden Carter on sight. Arrogant, egotistical, and the playboy of the University of California, Berkeley, he’s everything her brother Pearce has taught her to despise. So why, when the girls challenge her to play the player, doesn’t she say no? She doesn’t know either.

Braden wanted fiery little Maddie the second he laid eyes on her – and he’d do anything to have her, hence why he’s agreed to make her fall in love with him. After all, it’s the only way he’ll get what he wants. Sex.

But, as Braden discovers, there’s more to the girl from Brooklyn than he ever imagined – and he can’t help but care about the broken girl behind those pretty green eyes.

Maddie finds Braden isn’t just a walking erection – he actually has feelings. He can be sweet, funny and his good looks don’t exactly hurt. That means trouble – but when her brother Pearce turns up in Berkeley begging for her help, she realises Braden and Pearce aren’t so alike anymore.

And maybe, just maybe, they’re exactly what each other needs.

Excerpt:

He slides one of his arms around me and pulls me to him so my back is flush against his chest, both of our arms wrapping my stomach. “See? I’ve got you. It’s fine, Angel.”

“This is crazy. Never again is Megan organizing a date.”

“Yeah, she got a good one with this.” He laughs again and I shake my head.

“No, no, she didn’t. This is terrible.”

“Really? I would have thought that being up against me would be a good thing.”

“Maybe it would be if I could actually focus on the fact I’m pressed against your body.”

“Well, then.” He spins so he’s in front of me, skating backwards.

“Braden, you can’t see where we’re going!”

“That’s your job.”

“Oh my god.” I try looking over his shoulder but I can’t. He’s too tall, dammit. “You’re too tall!”

“Then you just have to trust me.” His lips take mine in a searing kiss and I gasp inwardly, grabbing hold of him tightly. His hands find my waist and pull my hips against him, our speed slowing slightly. He goes to deepen the kiss, his tongue tracing between my lips, and I nip his bottom lip before I open to him. My fingers tangle in his hair as our tongues meet, starting an intricate dance of want.

For a second, I forget the game. I forget the fake relationship. I forget the fact I’m on roller-skates and Braden isn’t-

“Oomph!” Braden grunts, hitting the floor. I laugh, rolling off him.

“I told you we didn’t know where we were going!” I say through my laughter, blades of grass tickling my ears.

“Hey.” He rolls towards me, propping himself up on his elbow. His hair flops down towards my face, casting little shadows over us. “I totally knew where we were going until you distracted me.”

I distracted you? Oh no, mister. You kissed me, not the other way around.”

“And I didn’t hear any complaints about that.”

“Maybe that’s because there weren’t any.”

“Oh, yeah?”

“Yeah.”

“Then let’s try again.”

Review: The Monster Within by Lola Rayne

monsterbookThe Monster Within

Mounting Darkness Series #1

By Lola Rayne

Urban Fantasy / Erotic Romance

Release Date:  October 2, 2012

 

Book Synopsis

Sometimes the monster that haunted you as a child truly is real…

All it took was one phone call to bring Nicole Jones’s life crumbling down around her. Now a nightmare she thought she’d left in her past is back, and he’s not exactly bringing her candy and flowers. While fleeing, in a non-terrified fashion, she meets a menacing man in a dark alley. Then promptly passes out at his feet.

Gideon Evans hasn’t exactly been having the best run of luck, but all that changes when a buxom little blonde collapses right in front of him. Or at least he thinks it has. It doesn’t take him long to realize that bombshell is an appropriate description for more than just her looks. Now he’s facing several problems, including a surprising enemy, his own dark past, and a rather inconvenient case of lust.

Can they work together to battle the nightmare that’s chasing them? Or will they succumb to the monster within?

REVIEW

This was great read! There was just enough paranormal mixed with erotica to keep you wanting more. The plot grabbed me from the first word. The attraction between Nicole and Gideon was instant. There were a handful of other characters I’m hoping she’ll elaborate on in further novellas *hint, hint*. I also look forward to learning more about Nicole’s past and why it is coming back to haunt her. There is also a little well placed humor throughout. I give this 4.5 stars and anxiously await the next.

About the Author
…I’m really starting to hate these with a never ending passion…

Born the only daughter of a pirate and a gypsy, Lola discovered the secret of time travel… and in doing so accidentally caused the destruction of the Roanoke Colony. When asked, her response was “Oops, my bad.” She now maintains the flow of time with her hyper-intelligent Raptor side-kick (Fabian), a phone booth than can travel sideways through time, and a bracelet that transforms her into an ass-kicking costumed super hero in a yellow power suit. Writing dirty books is just a cover so no one gets too close and learns her secret.

Review: Avenging Amethyst by Kaitlyn Price

Everyone loves to hear and read about new and upcoming authors. Today I introduce Kaitlyn Price, author of Avenging Amethyst. This is Kaitlyn’s debut novel.

amethystAvery and her mother have always been on the run. After her mother is murdered by something supernatural, she is left to fend for herself, alone and filled with questions. She receives a note by a stranger, giving her the opportunity to get some answers, and Avery warily accepts. She would rather face the truth than continue to be on the run.

What she discovers is nothing like she could’ve imagined. The stranger’s name is Felix, and he’s part of a race of creatures called Lovac. He tells Avery that she is a Lovac, too, and that they’re the distant descendants of the ancient vampire Nosferatu, along with two other races—the Nesmyr and Zhulik.

However, the Lovac are doomed to insanity, and nearly all of them lose their minds in their early twenties. The only way to be saved from the curse is for a Lovac to find their Dimidium, the one creature that can calm the darkness.

Nightmarish visions, kidnappings, and a lifestyle she never knew existed consume Avery’s life as she begins the search for her Dimidium and to get revenge for her mother’s death. –Goodreads

 

Review

This is a great twist on vampires and the like by a debut author. I really enjoyed this! The characters are great and well defined, each with a unique personality. Avery struggles with the death of her mother all while avowing to avenge her. She is coming of age and learning who she really is and the powers she never knew she had. The way her and Felix go back and forth keeps you tuned in just to see what happens next. This is a great introduction to what I’m sure will be a great series.

Meet Kaitlyn!KPrice

Kaitlyn lives in Colorado with a house full of crazy animals. She is a huge fan of vampires, and while they might be overdone, she will still continue to write about them and read any vampire book she can get her hands on.

Blogger Book Fair Day 4: Kayla Curry & John Forster

The fourth and final day of Blogger Book Fair Winter 2013, I bring you TWO MORE great authors, Kayla Curry and John Forster.

First, a guest post from Kayla Curry, author of Falling Leaves and Obsidian. She is also the brains behind this whole Blogger Book Fair! I hope everyone has enjoyed this semi-annual event. I am proud to have been a participant and hope to be part of it in the future. Thank you Kayla!

Guest Post

Hello! I’m Kayla Curry and I’m honored to be featured here on the Pezz Rambles blog. Today I’d like to tell you about my short story collection titled Falling Leaves. Falling Leaves consists of three stories which have been published separately, and now together as a collection. During Blogger Book Fair, you can get the collection for FREE on Amazon Kindle.

Falling Leaves Complete copy
Here are the blurbs for the three stories:

Falling Leaves:
A woman finds a special leaf that leads her to a magical and mysterious place. Will she believe what she sees when she finally gets there? Will she decide to stay?

Falling Leaves: The Book of Life:
When Thia decides to stay on the island that is home to the oldest and most important tree on earth, she also chooses Olivier for her companion. The pair face a difficult situation when the tree contracts an illness and puts all the plant life on earth in danger. Will they save the tree from the brink of death and save the world by doing so?

Falling Leaves: A Seed of Hope:
Thia and Olivier discover the answer to their problems, but things get complicated when an EPA agent visits the island and threatens the life of the most important sapling to ever start to grow.

These stories involve a wonderful element of magic. There is also a great deal of magic in my debut novel and the series it begins. Obsidian, book one of  the Mystic Stones Series is about vampires who take over earth’s technology by planting a virus in the satellites orbiting earth. They plan to allow humans to use the satellites again, only if they donate blood on a regular basis.

Thanks for reading!

Next, I bring you an interview with John Forster, author of Soul on Fire.

JohnForster

Why do you write?

I had not written anything other than emails and thank you cards for most of my adult life. I focused the bulk of my life on business pursuits. In 2009 I lost my job, became homeless, and my home was a 2001 Chevrolet Astro cargo van for eleven months. I worked a minimum wage job, lived off of McDonald’s dollar menu, and started reading books at a local Barnes and Noble. One day something clicked and I decided to write a book. I am a fan of historical fiction and adventure books so I worked out a plot and developed characters. I only needed pen and paper, writing is an inexpensive hobby. I taught myself how to write my first novel while writing my first novel. I am humbled that the 4th group I pitched the book to, Black Rose Writing, decided to offer me a contract and publish “Soul on Fire” I find writing to be therapeutic. I can check my problems at the door and dig into a different part of my mind to focus on building my first novel at the age of 51.

Discuss your novel, Soul on Fire

Soul on Fire is a story of one family, Neil, Cindy, Savannah, and Justin Daniels, and how the events of 9/11 affected the outcome of their lives. Pastor Neil Daniels is the main character in the story. Neil has a secret from the past that he has put behind him for thirty years and he promised God that there would never be a return to that life, a sacred promise. Pastor Neil was Gunnery Sargent Neil Daniels during the Vietnam War. He was a scout/sniper who operated behind enemy lines. He preached peace when the towers fell even though wife Cindy and daughter Savannah were among the dead. When Neil found out a conspirator was set free to go home to Iran, Neil decided to leave his Bible behind and picked up a sniper rifle to track his man into Iran. Neil is captured and Justin, his son, is a SEAL team leader who goes rogue to save his dad. There are a lot of twists and turns in this fact paced novel.

Who is Pastor Neil Daniels?

Neil is a man who is haunted by his misdeeds of the past. In particular, killing people because his government convinced him it was the right thing to do. Neil left for Vietnam as an angry young man and returned home searching for internal peace. And to find peace for himself he clung to the ministry as retribution for his sins. He became a man of God and in the process pushed his son Justin away from the family fold. Justin wanted to be a career soldier. Imagine the tension that caused.

How much research did you do for Soul on Fire?

I did lots of research. It was important to me to present events with accuracy. Respect for the victims of 9/11 drove me. I did not sensationalize the event for the sake of writing my novel. I researched by reading events of the day, by interviewing a young lady who was late for work on 9/11. I knew little of the Middle East. I read and studied everything I could get my hands on to make my fictional novel accurate. I learned a great deal about Shite and Sunni Muslims and their customs. All rituals and mores described in the book are accurate. I had a member of Special Forces review my battle tactics and weapons for accuracy.

Describe your title, Soul on Fire, as it relates to the plot.

Soul on Fire is directly related to Pastor Neil Daniels persona. This is a man who lost his parents to a drunk driver at the age of six, was kicked around foster homes and sent off to war at seventeen. His anger fuels the demons within. He fights those demons off for thirty years and when a wrong of gigantic proportions destroys his happy life, the flood gate opens up and he lets the demons grow to serve justice in an unjust world.

If Hollywood called and asked me to cast Soul on Fire, who would I choose?

Nicolas Cage could pull off Neil Daniels complex character. I like Donald Southerland as Jerry Powers, Neil’s old war buddy. I would choose Orlando Bloom as Justin Daniels and Liam Neeson as the admiral.

What are readers saying about Soul on Fire?

I am pleased to say I have gotten excellent feedback from my test readers (not family or close friends) like, “compelling;” “I could not put it down; my husband wants to read it next; my book club wants to read it;” and the best comment has been, “Were you there (the Middle East) This feels real.”

What do you hope to achieve with Soul on Fire?

I hope people read the book and come away with a message that Muslims are not our enemies. There are fanatics all over the world, including America, who think they can bully pulpit a message of violence and fear at the end of a gun barrel to get the rest of us to bow down to their political message. I staunchly support and respect our soldiers who do a tough job so the rest of us can sleep well at night and have the freedom to write about any number of subjects without fear of going to prison for expressing our views.

What was the last book I read?

I am researching my next novel so the last book I read was a nonfiction book about people who crawl and repel deep into the earth searching for the world’s deepest caves.

What is the next book I am reading?

Blogger Book Fair Day 3: Jami Gray and Kate Lutter

For day 3 of Blogger Book Fair, I bring you a double dose of awesome authors! First, I bring you Jami Gray, author of Shadow’s Edge and Shadow’s Soul.

ShadowsEdge_HR

Blurb for Shadow’s Edge:

Everyone fears what hunts in the shadows—especially the monsters…

It takes a monster to hunt one, and for Raine McCord, forged in the maelstrom of magic and science, she’s the one for the job. In a world where the supernatural live in a shadowy existence with the mundane, a series of disappearances and deaths threatens the secrecy of her kind and indicates someone knows the monsters are alive and kicking.  Partnering up with the sexy and tantalizing Gavin Durand proves to be a challenge as dangerous as the prey she hunts.

When the trail points back to the foundation which warped Raine’s magic as a child, her torturous past raises its ugly head.  Gavin and Raine sift through a maze of lies, murder and betrayal to discover not only each other, but the emerging threat to them and the entire magical community.

Excerpt :

Walking into the dim house, Raine braced herself for the smell which usually accompanied a violent death.  She knew that smell. It was distinctive. It reminded a person of raw meat, coppery blood. A scent warning you that whatever you found, it wasn’t going to be recognizable.

She was a few steps behind the two men and coming down the short entry way when she   realized there was no odor. No blood, no raw meat. She let out the breath she was holding. Yet, there were spine tingling traces of magic raising bumps along her skin as she drew closer to the front room.

Two agents passed her, heading out of the house, small evidence bags in their gloved hands. Osborn stopped just to the left of the entry way to the front room. In the middle of the opening, Gavin came to a halt blocking Raine’s view. She stepped around to his right and came to an abrupt stop, puzzled.

Bane Mayson was sprawled on the faded green couch under the picture window. At first glance the scene didn’t make sense. There were no visible wounds, no horrific mutilations, nothing to show how he died. Just the skitter of magic down her spine, making the deceptively calm scene in front of her much more ominous.

“Can you give a positive ID?” Osborn’s rough voice pulled her gaze back to him. He was looking at Gavin who wasn’t answering. She tilted her head to find out why then realized Gavin was looking at her.

“What?” she asked.

“I’ve never met him,” he said blandly. “Just spoke to him on the phone.”

“Oh.” A little disconcerted, she turned back to the waiting agent. “Yes, that’s Bane Mayson.”

ShadowsSoul

Blurb for Shadow’s Soul:

Some nightmares are born of love…

Raine McCord has no problem taking down the monsters of the world, it’s one of the reasons she’s so good at her job.  So playing bodyguard to Cheveyo, head Magi of the Northwest, as he consults with the Southwest Kyn should be an easy assignment. Unfortunately, simple task turns into a nightmare when Cheveyo is kidnapped and Raine is left for dead by one of the Kyn’s most feared beings, a Soul Stealer.

The Stealer’s attack leaves lasting wounds, undermining Raine’s confidence as a warrior and damaging her unruly magic. Her ability to heal her mind and spirit hinges on the one man who can touch her soul, Gavin Durand.  Compelled to face the emotions raging between them, they must embrace not only their stormy relationship but their evolving magic to escape the twisted threads of murder and betrayal to find Cheveyo.

As Raine and Gavin come together and begin to unravel the complex web of secrets and hidden vendettas haunting the Southwest Kyn, they discover unsettling new truths that threaten their very existence.

Excerpt:

Gavin took over. “An outside consultant was called in by both the Chavezes and the tribe whose land you’re looking at purchasing. Unfortunately, he’s gone missing.”

An unhealthy red color started at Ransom’s neck and worked its way up his face. “I run a legitimate business. We don’t go around kidnapping people.”

This time Raine never saw the shadows move. Ransom’s body jerked, stiffening as he clawed at his throat. It was clear he couldn’t breathe. His face went from red to pale to purple in a matter of moments. He was silently being choked to death in his leather office chair. Jumping up, she cleared the far end of the desk as Gavin rounded the other side. Ransom drummed his heels on the floor.

She grabbed his hands, forcing them to his sides.

She was surprised at how much strength she had to use to subdue a mere human. The chair rolled back with the force of their struggles until it hit the wall and stopped. She met Gavin’s gaze over the gasping man. They needed to see what they were fighting, so she dropped her shields. Her blood iced over.

Chindis,” she whispered.

He flicked his hand, and magic, at the hall window. The blinds snapped shut, giving them the illusion of privacy. There was no need for Carrie to come in while they were trying to save her boss from some truly pissed off ghosts.

“Shit, Gavin. If we don’t do something they’re going to rip him apart.”

“At least we know he’s linked,” he muttered, adjusting his shield to merge with hers. Together they spread the magical protection down over the dying human. As it clicked into place, an unearthly howl ripped through the psychic plane. The lurking ghosts were cut off from their feast. Instead of coming after her and Gavin, they disappeared, winking out as if some large rubber band had snapped them back.

“What the hell?” She sent her magic out in pursuit, but ran smack into a silver blue wall. Blinking, she found Gavin glaring at her over Ransom’s twitching body.

“Don’t even think about it,” he snarled. “I don’t have time to go riding to your rescue.”

WildPointIsland_FrontCoverBanished from Wild Point Island as a child, Ella Pattenson, a half human-half revenant, has managed to hide her true identity as a descendent of the Lost Colony of Roanoke.  Thought to have perished, the settlers survived but were transformed into revenants–immortal beings who live forever as long as they remain on the island.

Now, Ella must return to the place of her birth to rescue her father from imprisonment and a soon to be unspeakable death.  Her only hope is to trust a seductive revenant who seems to have ties to the corrupt High Council.  Simon Viccars is sexy and like no man she’s ever met. But he’s been trapped on the island for 400 years and is willing to do almost anything for his freedom.

With the forces of the island conspiring against her, Ella must risk her father, her heart, and her life on love.

 

 

 

 

kateAuthor Bio:

Kate Lutter believes she was born to write. She wrote her first novel when she was in eighth grade, but then almost burned her house down when she tried to incinerate her story in the garbage can because she couldn’t get the plot to turn out right. Now, many years later, she lives in NJ with her husband and five cats (no matches in sight) and spends her days writing contemporary paranormal romances, traveling the world, and hanging out with her four wild sisters. She is happy to report that her debut novel, Wild Point Island, the first in a series, has just been published by Crescent Moon Press. She is busy writing the sequel and her weekly travel blog entitled Hot Blogging with Chuck, which features her very snarky and rascally almost famous cat.
