Soul Awakening By Paul Lonardo #NewRelease #Review #Excerpt



Soul Awakening
By Paul Lonardo
 (Inkspell Publishing)
ASIN: B06ZYSYNLW    
     ISBN: 978-1-945910-08-1

Blurb:
Something otherworldly is happening in a small Texas town.
As a small Texas town mourns the tragic death of its high school football star, Alecia is struggling to adjust to life without the boy she has dated since sixth grade and thought she would be with forever.
When Braden comes to her as an apparition, she finds herself falling for Riley, Braden’s best friend and teammate. Has Braden returned to spy on her, or for some other reason?
Alecia’s not sure, but she soon realizes she must find a way to accept Braden’s death and welcome love back into her life, or risk losing everything.
The Power of Secret Love changes everything…
 
EXCERPT:
“Alecia.”
Her name had come out of Braden’s mouth countless times before in so many different inflections and every possible situation. This time, he spoke her name tentatively, almost warily, his tone unfamiliar even though it was clearly his voice. It had been about ten minutes after she’d gotten off the phone with Riley. She couldn’t sleep, and she was lying in bed, streaming some music on her phone.
“Alecia.”
She raised her head, and her eyes instantly widened. She lifted herself upright on the bed and gazed directly at Braden, who was standing in the middle of the room. She couldn’t believe what she was seeing. She didn’t know if she was awake or asleep at first. If she was dreaming, it was the most realistic dream anyone could ever have. If Braden was an apparition, then so was everyone else she’d ever encountered. Alecia had never seen a ghost before, but she would have expected one to have physical qualities that were vastly different from those of the living. This was Braden, in solid human form, not an ethereal manifestation or translucent likeness. He wasn’t floating in the air, his orange Nikes were planted firmly on the wood floor of her bedroom. His voice wasn’t accompanied by moaning, shrieks, or rattling chains.
It was uncanny. Not only was Braden here in the corporeal sense, he looked exactly as he would have if he’d survived the accident. His hair had been cut short the day before the accident. Now, however, it had almost two full weeks of growth. And while he didn’t have much in the way of facial hair, he was sporting a stubbly beard and mustache. It was a new look for Braden, and Alecia was not hating it.

New Release - Devlin's Desire by Elaine Barris #Review #NewRelease




Devlin’s Desire, A Tulsa Immortals Novel
Elaine Barris

Release Date: May 23, 2017

***Blurb***

Jolie

Armand saved me from a despicable man, Devlin Wick.
What a name. It sounds like ‘devil’ and ‘wicked’ to me.
I wasn’t sure why, but I couldn’t remember the specifics of what Devlin had done to me, though I did recall the sheer terror I felt the last time I saw his face. It was smoky... or foggy. I’m not certain which.

If I really concentrated on that moment, I could faintly hear a male voice crying out, but Armand didn’t want me to think about that. As much as I tried to obey him, I found myself wondering about that man and that night, even though Armand insisted that he had gotten me out of an awful situation.

Armand was a vampire, and he loved my blood. He said there was something unique and special about it and that he would protect me at all costs.

He said he treasured me.

That was what I knew to be true, and that was my life.
Armand had changed me from the woman I was—the kind who would fall for such a hurtful person.

I hated Devlin Wick.

Devlin

Each night without Jolie was torture, and I couldn’t help wondering if in some small way, she was feeling the same, missing me. The second that thought crossed my mind, I saw her screaming in fear of me, clutching Armand to her fiercely, while the witch closed the incantation, removing me from her life.

I’d tried reaching out to the Twin Ravens Motorcycle Club, since I heard that despite their outlaw persona, they were secretly the good guys. But if they were, they would’ve taken up the battle, rather than refuse to help me. Nothing in their decision made sense, considering the rumors floating around, but I had to move on if I was ever going to get Jolie back.

With no other choices available, I went to The Decrees to stand before Zane Thornton and beg for his help. I would’ve dropped to my knees if that was what it took to rescue my girl. But rather than Zane joining me, his Maker, the ancient vampire Reese Kelley, agreed to fight to free Jolie from the rogue MC Soldiers of Strife, specifically their president Armand Glaceau. The members were all Stone Cold vamps, exceedingly strong and faster than any vampire I’d ever encountered.

With a team made up of Reese, some of my old crew from Corruption, Inc., and a gibbering maniac who thinks he’s the prophet Elijah, we devised a plan to rescue Jolie and eliminate as many of the Soldiers as possible in the process.

But even if we save Jolie, and she’s in my arms again…will she be the woman I loved and love me in return?

Jolie was mine once, and despite the odds against us, she will be again.

She’s my only desire.

Devlin’s Desire is a part of the Tulsa Immortals series, a world created by Audra Hart, and this is my contribution. It contains steaming wickedly hot scenes of vivid intimacy, laugh-out-loud humor, and acts of violence. It is meant for an adult audience.

***MY REVIEW***


Devlin and Jolie's story is set in the same world as Zane and Master for Tonight, I really like this as it adds more to the story for me, that being said it could easily be read as a standalone.

Devlin's story begins when Zane is seated as a judge, his known to be ruthless but Devlin has no choice but to face the vampire and ask for help.

Devlin is a vampire too and he is strong, he likes a simple life until one day when feeding off a girl called Jolie, something clicks and that's the beginning of a wonderful relationship until she's snatched from him.

Jolie has a ditzy feel to her, she's also caring and weak in the sense that she's human in a vampire world.

Devlin feels desperation, his determined to get his girl back. The journey isn't easy, our man has to learn patience. Along the way we meet a new type of vamp, okay they're not the nicest but they are interesting. Elijah is another characther in the book, he has a hippy feeling to him/witch doctor/magic man?! I'm really interested in seeing more of him.

It always nice to have familiar faces appear but it's also great discovering new ones. 

A romp into the vampire world, full of adventure, passion, and sexiness. 

4-4.5 stars

Tricia Daniels lives in a small town in Southern Ontario, Canada, where she raised three kids as a single parent. Creativity and imagination is something there is never a short supply of in her home. Between her quick wit and wicked sense of humor she found that she has a passion for writing steamy romance novels. Her goal is simple, tell her story, warm a few hearts, shed a few tears, share a silent chuckle, and occasionally, make people blush. That's the official version. But the simple truth is... I'm just a normal woman, struggling to pay the bills and trying to raise my kids in a home where they feel empowered, supported and loved. I'd like to say that the story came to me with a gentle persuasion...but oh no! This story hit me like a full on tackle from behind and there were no foul flags thrown by the referee. Here's a little something unusual about me, well at least I think so... I'm not an author. My friends laugh when I say that. I have never aspired to write the next great love story or take the literary world by storm. I'm just a girl, who woke up from a dream with characters, scenes and a story in my head that was tied to such powerful emotions I couldn't settle until I wrote them down to get them out of my brain. This story would have never been shared with any of you if it wasn't for very good friends, who continue to try and convince me that I have a gift. Who knew? Definitely not me.

BLURB

"My name is Charlotte O’Callaghan and I am a serial killer." "My name is Detective Matthew Craig and I am hunting a serial killer no one else believes exists." They call her the poor cursed princess. He is one of the police force’s finest. When upper class daughter Charlotte O’Callaghan loses her parents to a hit and run at the age of 15, she feels as if she died along with them, until one accident on the evening to her 16th birthday and a freak coincidence on the night of her parents' death anniversary changes everything. Matthew Craig has connected seventeen deaths to each other by nothing more than the date and time of death. No one believes that these violent deaths have been executed by one person, because other than the date and time of death and them being unsolved homicides, there are no similarities. That and the hit-and-run he feels where everything started. It is his investigation into that hit-and-run that has Charlotte and Matthew crossing paths and that changes everything.
