VampireElitecoversmall5.6

Book Description:

How can you make a choice between saving your people and destroying the one you love?

 

A millennia-long war between two immortal races is about to come to an end. Long ago, the Vampire Elite began capturing members of another race of immortal beings, the Amiti, forcing them to become their blood suppliers—bloodstock—and locking them in underground cells, where they are treated like livestock. Now, the few remaining free Amiti are making a final attempt to strike back. The Queen of the Amiti has been proclaimed a traitor and executed. Her death makes possible the rise of a new Queen, her young daughter Arianna, who becomes the last hope of her dying race.

 

Arianna totally embraces her mission and is ready to fight for her people to the last drop of her blood but encounters an unexpected challenge—the vampire King Tor. The Amiti Queen and the King of the vampires are drawn into a trap of love where each has to make the ultimate choice: to kill their loved one or risk the extermination of their people.

 

Vampire Elite is an epic story of a bitter conflict between two peoples, and the effect of that conflict on everyone living in its grip. The characters are driven to love and betrayal, vengeance and sacrifice in a world without easy black-and-white answers.

 

Based on an ancient Egyptian legend, packed with action and intrigue, Vampire Elite will pull you into the entrancing world of immortals and open new portals into their hidden universe.

templandcover

Book Description

 

The heroine, Melanie Evers, is a plucky young working-class woman from Akron, Ohio struggling to support herself in Chicago in the post-9-11 economy. TEMPLAND follows Melanie’s journey through the temporary employment world from a college student on “just a summer job” to a 28-year-old woman with a lot of intelligence (and a heap of student loan debt to match) through multiple layoffs and a series of ever-more-wacky temp assignments, as she struggles not only to survive, but also to find romance and always remain true to the honest, working-class values instilled in her by her beloved grandfather.

 

In her long, solitary journey through Templand, Melanie encounters adventure and romance on her search for that always-elusive Permanent Job—which she finally gets, along with her man. TEMPLAND is a highly entertaining, wickedly funny social satire, contemporary romance, and mystery novel all rolled into one.

Necromancer Selene Vanream helps ghosts settle their affairs so they can move on. But when breaking the rules gets her in trouble, she’s bumped down to tracking ghosts trying to avoid the afterlife. Ghosts like Ethan Lance, who claims he was kicked out of his body when someone else jumped in. Which might be plausible—if such a thing were possible. And if Micah, Selene’s partner, didn’t pull her into an investigation of brutal murders that lead directly back to Ethan.

But when the whole mess puts Selene’s life in danger, she suddenly has very personal reasons to get Ethan’s body back. Between her uncomfortable relationship with Micah, and problems with her boss, Selene learns just how much trouble it can be when you don’t follow the rules…

REVIEW

Move over Christian Grey. If you thought Fifty Shades was hot, wait until you read this! This book had the definite jaw dropping WOW factor. There are no secrets when it comes to sex here. Aside from the great sex, there is a good storyline. Warning, though, there is some serious BDSM to be read. The characters all go well together. I couldn’t put this book down. It’s a modern day erotic romance with a classic ‘rescue the damsel’ twist. Acres really knows how to keep you interested with her fin attention to detail. I definitely recommend reading this book!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Natalie Acres has been a fan of western fiction for most of her life. Born and raised in the south, Natalie spent most of her life on a large ranch. When she discovered romance fans wanted western erotic romances, she sat down at her computer and hasn’t moved since, except on rare occasions.

The best selling author of Cowboy Boots and Untamed Hearts and Sex Party, Natalie writes western ménage romances and romantic suspense. In her spare time, she reads anything she can find on the historical towns of the Old West and she believes when writing romance, “A man’s kiss is his signature” (Mae West quote).

“Her Master’s Voice” by Vivien Sparx: Blog Tour & Giveaway (@viviensparx) #HerMasterVoice

Her Master's Voice banner

Here’s another awesome tour for another equally as awesome author, Vivien Sparx! She’s touring her newest, soon to be released novel, Her Master’s Voice. Be sure and stick around to enter the giveaway, too!

her Master's Voice - Book CoverBook Blurb:

When young Kate receives an anonymous text message she doesn’t realize how much her world is about to change. Surrendering to her inner most desires Kate soon finds herself submitting to the erotic, sensual and sensitive demands of her mysterious Master.
Drawn into a world of erotic love Kate quickly realizes all that matters in her world is Her Master’s Voice.

JUST A TASTE…
Kate got to her knees on the living room floor and tied the red scarf around her head to blindfold herself.

In the sudden darkness Kate’s senses seemed heightened. Every small sound made her flinch, and her mind quickly became overwhelmed with erotic images. Her naked skin felt cool, and yet she felt as though she was on fire. She rested her hands on her thighs. Her palms were sweating.
The silence seemed to slow time. She became aware of every new sound, and each small noise took on greater importance. Her attention was tuned to the sound of the front door, and when she heard the scrape of distant shuffling her body suddenly tensed in anticipation. A shudder thrilled through her body and her breath caught in the back of her throat.

Then she heard the door swinging slowly open.

He was here!
Kate’s body tensed. She heard his soft footsteps as he crossed the room. She could feel him nearby, standing somewhere in front of her. She gulped and licked her lips nervously.

“You are perfectly safe,” her Master said, and Kate felt herself literally melting at the deep confident assurance in his voice.

She nodded, not trusting herself to speak.

More footsteps. Kate sensed him walking around her, as if he was inspecting his new property. She straightened her back.
“You are beautiful,” he said. By the sound of his voice, Kate knew he was standing close behind her. She stayed silent, and now he was here, now it was all really happening… her mind was blank. Her whole focus was on the sound of his voice and the sense of him being near her.

Author’s Bio & Picture: Author Bio Pic

 

As a writer of erotic romance, the beauty of the genre is not in creating lavish settings for my stories.

Nor is my fascination for erotic romance drawn from the opportunity to create handsome heroes and beautiful heroines.

My real love for the genre stems from the opportunity to take my readers on a journey and engage as many of their emotions as possible.

I believe writing erotic romance gives authors the most influence over how a reader feels as we engage them in our stories.

Writers of action books, or horror books certainly can create compelling situations, but with erotic romance we writers can immerse our readers in a multitude of emotions unprecedented in any other form of creative fiction.

I can frustrate readers, make them laugh, make them cry, delight them, intrigue them, inform them – erotic fiction is a total emotional experience, and it is gratifying to hear readers respond to stories with passion.

I believe readers want to be engaged and drawn into the pages of a story, and as a writer of erotic romance, we have the greatest opportunity because our stories are always relatable. They may be fictional worlds and fictional characters, but the themes of love and romance and erotica are so universal, and so personal to each of us that we all respond to stories in different ways.

But we all respond.

And that’s the true joy of writing erotic romance. It matters not so much how you respond as you read… it matters only that you do respond. If a writer can engage you and make you feel, then the story’s journey is one well worth taking.

3780THEWILDSIDE510-220x330The Wild Side

Tagline: The wild side is an interesting stretch of territory where only the courageous survive.

Blurb:

Joe Kramer is a simple-minded young man tending farm with his father. When a neighbor needs a lift, his dad sends him out to give the woman a ride. Soon, a Moonlight Clan Council member has her claws in Joe, leaving him a changed man.

Accepting his fate, Joe joins a wolf pack steeped in history and tradition, but someone among them is threatening to tear their pack apart. To make matters worse, as the pack master, Joe rebukes the traditions of the past while ignoring the mandated placement of two mates.

As he leads his pack to a position of strength, Joe will stand out as the clear Alpha destined to protect the East Tennessee Moonlight Clan Council, but will his lack of experience and immaturity cost the clan what they cherish most? And who, if anyone, will stand beside him when he fights to protect those closest to home?

The Primitive State3836THEPRIMITIVESTATE510-220x330

Tagline: Captivity temporarily restrains, but love forever binds

Blurb:

Shuke and Tommy are forced into captivity by a twisted hunter with knowledge of the Moonlight Clan Council. Desperate to separate the growing East Tennessee wolf pack, the shifter-hunter ships Shuke and Tommy to Arizona where a beautiful woman soon releases them.

Once freed, Shuke and Tommy decide to return to Tennessee, but there’s a slight problem with their plan. They can’t keep their hands off each other. Worse still, Shuke finds he can’t leave the Phoenix area due to an unexpected mate calling.

Following the scent of a woman, Shuke insists on returning to Salt River, the last place he saw the female who freed them. And with the lust growing between Shuke and Tommy not at all overshadowing his desire for a woman, Shuke sees his fate sealed as the trilogy of endowment calls to him in a way he never expected.

Tagline: One beast may die, but another one will rise. And his savage ways will live on forever.

Blurb:

Two members of the Moonlight Clan Council are abducted. After they’re pulled away from their East Tennessee pack and shipped to Canada, they awaken only to find themselves surrounded by the snow-covered peaks of the Northern Rocky Mountains. To make matters worse, a formidable enemy stands before them and challenges them in a battle for their lives.

Fighting their way to freedom, Len and Ray come face to face with Sable, another wolf-shifter defending their pack’s enemy, Corey Marshall. Once Sable learns she supported the wrong wolf, she realizes how much she stands to lose.

Drawn to their attacker in a way that doesn’t make sense, Len and Ray see vivid images as the trilogy of endowment unfolds before them. They embrace their mating call, but the young woman is quite a handful. And Sable isn’t prepared for Len’s idea of a first mating. After Len and Ray unleash their building passion, Sable is left with only one choice—complete surrender.
