Friday’s Romantic Picks Bargain Spotlight- Betrayals of Spring by L P Dover

betrayals-of-spring-by-l-p-doverThe smell of rain vastly approaches as we are lying on the ground in a sea of flowers. They surround our bodies while the fresh Spring wind caresses our skin with its soft, gentle touch. Combined as one, we stare into each other’s eyes as we bask in the pleasure of our love and OUR land.

The Land of the Fae has flourished bringing a new beginning and a new court, the Fall Court. Five years have passed since then along with the dreaded day that Meliantha, Summer Court Princess and one of the powerful Four, was betrayed and broken-hearted by the sexy and alluring Winter Prince, Kalen. Spurned by the man she loves, Meliantha has turned and fallen into the arms of the fierce and handsome warrior, Finn, who understands she can never love him, but wants more than anything to mend her broken heart.

The Winter Solstice Ball is approaching, meaning Meliantha will have to face the Winter Prince and make it out of there with her heart intact. But what does she do when Prince Kalen acts as if nothing ever happened and seems more in love with her than ever before?

The dark sorcerer has planned his twisted game of lies and deceit well, and has enjoyed making himself a player without anyone’s knowledge. The game is almost over and the players are exactly where they are needed to be. Will Meliantha figure out his twisted game and save all the players? Or will the dark sorcerer once again obtain the power of the Four and take everything away from her…even her one true love?

Friday’s Romantic Picks Bargain Spotlight- Love or Vengeance

for-love-or-vengeance-by-caridad-pineiro
FBI Special Agent Helene Alexander is a goddess.  An actual frickin’ goddess. And her mission is clear, see that justice is served at all times or her days as a goddess are numbered.
Helene’s new FBI partner defines good-looking, but Miguel Sanchez, wants nothing to do with her ends-justify-the-means attitude. He knows through experience the type of guilt her actions can bring and Miguel wants nothing to do with Helene’s careless ways. Even if she’s so damned hot she makes him burn with the need.
When the serial killer they’re tracking strikes again, Helene and Miguel are drawn into a case that will challenge their most fundamental beliefs about justice and vengeance. But it’s the passion between them that forces a goddess to choose: eternal life with all her powers…or death—to save the man she loves.

From the Author

It’s very exciting to have THE CALLING vampire novel series back and REBORN.  So many of you have been on this ride with me from the very first book, DARKNESS CALLS.  So many of you have been writing and asking for more, especially about FBI Agent Diana Reyes and Southern gentleman vampire Ryder Latimer.  I’m so happy to say:  We’re back!

FOR LOVE OR VENGEANCE is the first of four books in the REBORN vampire novel series.  Helene Alexander is a tough cookie who is totally not ready for any kind of human relationship.  But it’s tough for her to ignore her sexy and too honorable new partner, Miguel Sanchez.

A deadly serial killer is on the loose and it’s up to Helene and Miguel to track him down while fighting their undeniable attraction.  An attraction that will have severe consequences for Helene who cannot fail in her quest for justice.  Why? Because she’s actually Nemesis, the Goddess of Vengeance and the price for failure is deadly.

In FOR LOVE OR VENGEANCE, Diana Reyes will have a cameo role, but look for her and Ryder to come back full force in the next three books in the series.

TO LOVE OR SERVE #2 will be available on October 28.
BORN TO LOVE #3 will be available on November 25.
BORN TO DIE (tentative title) #4 will be available on December 23.

Orangeberry 2013 Hall of Fame Best Romance!

Lord Gerard Lenister needed the lady…after their meeting, he wanted her.

For seventeen years Lady Eloise Granville lived in France thinking herself a bastard. Not until her life was threatened did her father cross the English Channel to reclaim her as his legitimate daughter. Now four years later a revolution roars its ugly head in France. Rumors abound of Lady Eloise’s life before her emergence in England…rumors that link her to the notorious leaders of the French Revolution.

Lord Gerard Lenister knows well the whispered connections Lady Eloise has across the Channel and the disdain that Society holds for the lady. It matters little to him. He could have cared less if she was the incarnation of a she-devil. He would marry Jezebel herself if she helped him on his mission. He is that desperate…but soon he discovers that Lady Eloise is not what she seems.

Wednesday’s Romantic Picks Bargain Spotlight- The Devil’s Metal by Karina Halle

the-devil-s-metal-by-karina-halleIt’s the summer of 1974 and 21-year old Dawn Emerson has only three things she wants to do: compete one last time in the Ellensburg Rodeo, win back her ex-boyfriend Ryan, and become the best damn music journalist at Central Washington State College. But all her plans are left in the dust when she’s contacted by Creem magazine to go on the road with one of her favorite groups, the up-and-coming metal band, Hybrid.

At first the assignment reads like a dream come true. Not only will Dawn land some much-needed credibility as a female music journalist, but she’ll finally get to experience life from the other side of the stage, and maybe crack the drunken, enigmatic code that is guitarist Sage Knightly. Instead, Dawn finds herself on an aging tour bus filled with ego-maniacs, band politics and a whole lot of sex, drugs and rock n’ roll. When monsters start showing up in dressing rooms and some of Sage’s groupies become increasingly strange and dangerous, Dawn discovers the band is not only going places – they’re going straight to Hell.

And Dawn has a backstage pass.
