Penny and Laci are headed for a mundane summer vacation until a mysterious journal unlocks a portal

The Emerald Key by Mark Frederickson & Melora Pineda ~ Release Blitz WORDPRESS HTML

Excerpt

They could hear the deep breaths of the dragon as it passed by the shed. They crouched motionless

under the window with their backs pressed against the wall. Not only did they hear it sniffing the ground

and the walls, but that familiar methane smell was overwhelming. It rounded the side and approached

the woodshed doors.

Buzz mouthed a jumbled Hail Mary while attempting, but failing to make the sign of the cross.

A loud screech in the distance startled them out of their silent formation and Buzz’s haphazard prayer.

The dragon pushed off the ground with its massive legs and flew away, back in the direction of the

enormous mountain they had seen from the top of the knoll. It turned back once to circle the shed; then

as quickly as it arrived, it vanished into the horizon behind the trees.

Til Death Do Us Part by Amanda Quick

Publication Date: April 19, 2016

Publisher: Berkley

Synopsis: The author of the New York Times bestseller Garden of Lies returns to Victorian London in an all-new novel of deadly obsession.

Calista Langley operates an exclusive “introduction” agency in Victorian London, catering to respectable ladies and gentlemen who find themselves alone in the world. But now, a dangerously obsessed individual has begun sending her trinkets and gifts suitable only for those in deepest mourning—a black mirror, a funeral wreath, a ring set with black jet stone. Each is engraved with her initials.

Desperate for help and fearing that the police will be of no assistance, Calista turns to Trent Hastings, a reclusive author of popular crime novels. Believing that Calista may be taking advantage of his lonely sister, who has become one of her clients, Trent doesn’t trust her. Scarred by his past, he’s learned to keep his emotions at bay, even as an instant attraction threatens his resolve.

But as Trent and Calista comb through files of rejected clients in hopes of identifying her tormentor, it becomes clear that the danger may be coming from Calista’s own secret past—and that only her death will satisfy the stalker..

Personal Thoughts:One of my favorite authors and an auto read book. I’ll be looking forward for this book to come out as it sounds really good.

Walking Heartbreak by Sunniva Dee

Publication date: December 17th 2015
Genres: New Adult,

Romance, Suspense

“Don’t judge me.

I am not what you see.

I am the opposite.

—Nadia’s lipstick note on Bo’s mirror.

Indie-rocker Bo Lindgren is worshiped for his looks and musical genius. It’s been

lonely at the top since his ex left. Bo will never take a girlfriend again though, because

he doesn’t have the chops to love. He knows he’s poison, a heartbreak waiting to

happen for anyone he allows too close—like his ex. Bo screws his way through the

fangirls until he’s sick of it all. Until the dark gaze of Nadia Vidal appears in the door to

his dressing room.

Saved from an arranged marriage by Jude, the love of her life, Nadia eloped and

got married at nineteen. But now, two years later, life is wilted, dead, and not what

anyone should have to endure.

Nadia, with her secret-keeper eyes and instant understanding of who Bo is, attracts

and fascinates him without even trying. The ring gleaming on her finger should keep

them apart, but morals can’t always resist destiny.

When brokenhearted meets heartbreaker, whose heart is really at

stake?

Goodreads / Amazon
3 WH Obsession is music

EXCERPT:

BO

Her moods flow in gentle waves. The coffee of her irises swims with sadness then

lifts into whiskey gold with the twang of my guitar. Left to ourselves in the back lounge,

our silence is sinuous, laced with stories from my hometown, Skala, and Nadia’s

anecdotes from growing up in a cult. But when we’re quiet, my fingers itch and find my

guitar. Toy with strings and enunciate emotions she tries to conceal.

Sometimes, my riffs turn to ballads while lyrics splash out in patches of color in my

head. Sometimes, when Nadia curves a hip to get comfortable, my gaze float to her

waist and shifts to her chest. The game of my chords turns loaded, adding a steady,

slow beat, the way I do to make her climb when we’re together.

Without words, she still hears my hunger. Watches my fingers work metal strings

with a need that becomes X-rated. And she sits up. Joins her legs and lowers her chin

to her knees, demure, secretive, hiding behind her hair in shyness and not

understanding that she’s sexier than ever.

All these females. So many women and vixens with a past, a present, and a

future—a full life I never wanted to be a part of. But now, I crave to bury deep under the

skin of a single girl who is not single.

It’s been a while since I spoke last, so my voice rasps deep when I say, “You kill

me.”

“I don’t want to kill you. Do you know the person you are? How talented you are?

You deserve so much, Bo, you don’t even know, and the last thing you need is dead

weight like me.”

Author Bio:Sunniva Dee

Sunniva was born in Norway, the Land of The Midnight Sun, but spent her early

twenties making the world her playground. Southern Europe: Spain, Italy,

Greece—Argentina: Buenos Aires, in particular. The United States finally kept her

interest, and after half a decade in California, she now lounges in the beautiful city of

Savannah. Sunniva has a Master’s degree in Spanish, which she taught until she

settled in as an adviser at an art college in the South.

Sunniva writes New Adult fiction with soul. Sometimes it’s with a paranormal twist,

like in Shattering Halos, Stargazer, and Cat Love. At other times, it’s contemporary, as

in Pandora Wild Child, Leon’s Way, Adrenaline Crush, and now Walking

Heartbreak.

Sunniva is the happiest when her characters take over, let their emotions run off

with them, shaping her stories in ways she never foresaw. She loves bad-boys and

good-boys run amok, and like in real life, her goal is to keep you on your toes until the

end of each story.

Synopsis

Branna Murphy is broken. For months now she has been a part of a one-sided relationship to a man she

loves more than life itself. She prayed for a miracle, and hoped something would change, but found that

was wishful thinking.

Talking didn’t work. Shouting didn’t work. Crying didn’t work. Nothing bloody worked.

Ryder Slater is furious. For months now he has been lying to a woman he would take a bullet for in order

to protect her. He is involved in something that goes deeper than his old past, and if he strays off target,

people will start to die. People he loves.

He couldn’t talk. He couldn’t slip up. He couldn’t lose focus. He couldn’t do a damn thing.

Things between Ryder and Branna are at rock bottom, and Ryder knows it. Not only will he be taking on

a force that could destroy his whole family, but he will be battling tooth and nail to save his relationship

and keep the love of his life by his side.

Ryder targeted Branna from the first moment he saw her, and what Ryder targets, Ryder dominates.
