Randi Cooley Wilson's REDEMPTION Blog Tour & Giveaway

The Perfect Gift
Randi Cooley Wilson

The Revelation Series is chock-full of interesting characters. Some human, some supernatural, many of them sexy and hot. I sat down recently with the series leading female character, Eve Collins and asked her what she’s planning to get the rest of the characters you’ve come to know and love for the holidays. See her Holiday Gift list below.
Asher St. Michael ( Eve’s Love Interest and Protector): Surprisingly, Asher loves to read. I realize how odd that sounds since he uses most of his free time to lip lock with me. This year, I got him a signed hardcover edition of The James Bond Dossier by Ian Fleming. It’s a first edition, first printing. THE AUTHOR’S COPY.It’s in the publisher’s unique presentation binding of quarter red morocco over red cloth boards.He’s going to flip. (Also a little something from La Perla but that’s for his eyes only).
Gage Gallagher (The Mysterious Gargoyle): Some of you may not know this but Gage actually studied architecture. So this year, he’s getting a coffee table book of Frank Llyod Wright designs.Only if he can make up his mind and decide where his loyalties lay.
Callan (Asher’s Brother): La Creuset 4-piece bakeware set in green, his protector stone color, because, I mean come on. Callan’s cookies are the best!.
Abby (Callan’s Mate): Abby loves clothes. So, I got her a gift certificate to Nordstrom. Which no doubt, she’ll force me to spend the day playing dress-up with.
Keegan (Asher’s Older Brother): A custom dagger for his collection engraved with rubies, his protector stone.
McKenna (Keegan’s Mate): I hear that McKenna is super allergic to wool. Like, face blows up allergic. So, I got her the most gorgeous wool scarf. I know she’ll just love it.
Michael (Archangel): I got him an angel for the top of his tree. Yep, I think it’s deserved.It lights up and everything, he’s going to love it (insert sarcism here).
Elizabeth (Eve’s Aunt): An engraved gardening set because my aunt has the most beautiful garden on the Vineyard.
Wishing you all the best holiday season from all the cast of The Revelation  
Series. The author too, but she doesn’t usually get to talk much.

After graduation she moved to California where she lived happily bathed in sunshine and warm weather for fifteen years.

I hope I’ve done them justice.” Randi loves to hear from readers, you can reach out to her via Twitter    and/or Facebook   

Read below for an excerpt from the book:
Strong arms wrap tightly around my waist and tug me back to a warm, muscular chest. Asher lifts his hand and moves my hair to one side, over my shoulder, so he can have access to my neck. I tilt my head to the right, making it easy for his lips to gently brush the sensitive skin under my left ear before leaving a trail of soft kisses.
“Someday, when this is all over, I promise you’ll have the peace you’re craving. It will be just me and you, siren,” he vows quietly.
I sigh in contentment. “That’s all I want, Ash.”
“Then I’ll move Heaven and earth to make sure you get it."
I turn to face him and push up on my tiptoes. Leaning in, I give him a slow, molten kiss. I push everything I feel for him into the gesture. I want to fill every space of his soul, the way he does mine.
It’s like I’m trying to climb inside his heart and live there. I’m not sure how long we stay like this, in our own private, perfect moment, but I never want to leave.
Breathlessly, I pull away. My eyes find Asher’s. “What is it you want the most?”
Asher’s intense gaze holds mine, taking my breath away. “Redemption.”

Jenn Young's REASON AND ROMANCE Book Tour and Giveaway

Reason and Romance
by Jenn Young
Release Date: 12/09/14

Book Summary:
Being stuck in the godforsaken desert is Adrian Blake’s worst nightmare come true. Senior year is all about making fun memories. It’s not about starting over at a new school and navigating a new Brady Bunch family. It’s really not about living with a sexy, arrogant would-be stepbrother who knows how to push her buttons. 
Alex Montgomery is the very definition of a player. The only thing he commits to is a one night stand. He’s exactly the kind of guy she hates. When she sleeps with him, it’s the biggest mistake of her life. Now she can’t stop thinking about him. Not at school. Not at home. Sometimes the best mistakes are the ones that you make over and over again…

About the Author

She also used to write under the pen name Moreta. Jenn is an unabashed lover of romance, soap operas, and paranormal/supernatural stories.

She can be found on Facebook too.

Alex tilted his head. “Now that’s a tepid thank-you. I expected a little more gratitude than that, but really, knowing you, I wouldn’t have gotten it.”
Her gaze snapped back to him. “Oh, I don’t begrudge credit where it’s due, but knowing you, you’d ask for more than just gratitude.”
“And what exactly would I ask for?”
Her back bumped gently into the wall. He’d somehow maneuvered things, so that he was cornering her. It was so reminiscent of the incident that had happened by the lockers that her stomach fluttered in remembrance.
“Well …” she drawled, conscious of that edgy excitement shivering through her body. “You’re already in the gutter. I don’t think it’ll be too hard for you to come up with a few suggestions.”
He placed a hand on the wall, next to her head. “Well, that depends on what you’re offering.”
She smiled into his eyes. “A hard kick in the ass.”
Alex laughed. “Baby, my door’s open anytime. You know where I live.”
“Oh yes, that room.” She clicked her tongue. “Not to embarrass you or anything, but from what I overheard, Mandy didn’t seem to be enjoying herself.”
She couldn’t begin to count the wall-banging, clutching-at-sheets, screaming orgasms she’d heard that time when Mandy had stopped by the house, but she had always suspected Mandy had played it up a bit for Alex’s ego.
“That boyfriend must not have treated you right after all. Or else, you’d know the difference between screams of pleasure and pain.”
“Jason and I were together for three years.” She cast him a sultry glance under her eyelashes. “But you and your countless girls … there must be a reason why they always leave you in the end.”
“No, baby, they don’t leave me. They just don’t hold my interest.”
“Are you tired of how they keep faking it for your benefit?”

“Now, if you’re that desperate for a demonstration …”

hundreds of harvested girls to the Letting facility. After all, she was saving them from future
Couplings and bringing them to the safety of the New World. Or so she thought…
Confused, Ronnie realizes the only way to discover the truth is to trust her heart. Together,

to save Phoenix, her country, and herself?

About the Author
Given my love for cities and all that is gritty, my new obsession with trees really has me stumped. (Sorry.) Maybe it's because trees are the inspiration behind my new YA/NA novel, THE LETTING.
Whatever the reason for my new infatuation, some things remain constant -- like my love for: coffee (although sadly, it's now decaf); yoga; Luna bars (I am petitioning for them to bring back Chocolate Raspberry!); running in my neighborhood; Hemingway; Bukowski... and, above all, my husband and my girls. I am the author of the bestselling novel, Sleeping With Mortals: The Story of a New York Mistress, and I'm also a playwright. I have my B.A. in English and my M.A. in Theatre.

“What if the Devil doesn’t know he’s the Devil?” I ask. 
Phoenix shakes his head, confused. “What?” 
“Why? Why does the bad I’ve done have to define me?” 
“Because you’re a murdering sadist,” he snaps back at me. 
“No, I am not.” I clench my teeth, standing my ground. I am tired of these labels I am suddenly wearing. “I never, I mean never knew what happened to those girls I led to the Lettings. I am so very sorry I played any role in this vile enterprise in which we exist, but I was clueless. Maybe I’m ignorant, or downright stupid, but I would rather have been dead than be responsible for hurting anyone. And before you go throwing malicious names around, maybe it’s time you consider maybe you’re wrong...? What if you kidnapped and tortured me in the name of a revolution that is wrong?” 
“It’s not,” he argues. 
“But I didn’t think I was wrong, either.” I am exasperated. “Don’t you get it?” He takes a step back away from me, but I go on. “We are completely turned around. The only information we’re fed is from a corrupt enterprise. What makes you think your information is any more accurate than mine?” 
For the first time ever, he looks terrified. I let a moment go by before I gesture for Raven to come over, and she hurries to my side. 
"This is Raven," I say, slowly, talking to Phoenix. "She's your sister."

R.L. Stedman INNER FIRE Book Tour and Giveaway @NereydaG1003 @rlstedman

Inner Fire
by R.L. Stedman
Release Date: 11/30/14

Summary from Goodreads:
‘‘Maybe it would be better if I started at the beginning.’ Gran watched me carefully. ‘This ability
we have; my mother, me. You. We draw heat along our bodies; anger makes us flame.’
When her friend is assaulted, Corrine Peterson can’t help reacting. But she didn’t think and now
her hands are burnt, Gran is coming to look after her and, scariest of all, strange men are
watching her house. Could they be terrorists? Secret agents?
It seems that Gran’s idea of a solution is to introduce Corrine to Rowan. Okay, sure, maybe
eighteen year old Rowan is gorgeous – but he has his own troubles. And right now, Corrine
doesn’t need complications in her life.
But in a world of surveillance and secrecy, complexity is inevitable. And as the tension mounts
Corrine realizes - maybe Gran can help her, after all.

‘Don’t worry, my dear. Everything will be just fine.’ Holding her around the shoulder, Mr Patel slipped off her school bag. Deepti didn’t even try to stop him; she just stood there, letting him move her around. He passed me the bag. Automatically, my hand reached out and I took it.
‘You can leave,’ he told me, staring at Deepti. ‘Deepti and I have something to
discuss now, don’t we dear?’
‘Don’t touch her!’ My voice sounded weak, afraid.
He said nothing, just turned away from me, as though I didn’t exist, as though
Deepti was the only thing in the world to him, like she was his own personal private present.
I held her bag to my chest, fighting for breath. This is not happening. This is not
‘Stop it!’ I could feel my anger, almost taste it on my tongue.
Mr Patel looked at me, his face mildly surprised, as though he wasn’t doing
anything wrong. ‘But Miss Jalali and I have an understanding.’ He smiled at me. His skin was olive-gray and his eyes had tiny red veins in them. ‘The last time I caught her lovely hands stealing my stock, I warned her. Didn’t I, Miss Jalali? I told you I would demand payment of you.’
Deepti turned her head away. ‘No! No!’ She struggled against him like a pinned
fly. ‘I didn’t. I didn’t. Please let me go!’ She was crying now, really crying.
‘Let her go!’ But my voice sounded small and weak, and he ignored me.
Oh my God. What do I do? Then, quite suddenly, I wasn’t scared – I felt angry.
The walls of the grotty shop seemed to pulse in time with my heart. Who the hell did this man think he was? I heard a distant roaring, the sound of fire and heat and red-hot flames.
I shouted, ‘Leave her alone!’

Ciara Knight's RISE FROM DARKNESS Book Tour & Giveaway!

Rise from Darkness 
(Battle for Souls #1)
by Ciara Knight 

Release Date: 09/24/14
Defy the Dark Publishing

Summary from Goodreads:
Alexander Lorre gives new meaning to the term "tormented teen." He's a newly fallen angel, which means he has the self-control of a three-year-old, the hormones of a teenager and the strength of an angel. When he rescues Gaby Moore from drowning, the chemistry between them is undeniable. With a local demon threatening Gaby's life, he struggles to find a balance between remaining close enough to protect her but distant enough to control his desires.  
As danger draws closer, Gaby uncovers shattering secrets that will lead to an ultimate choice. Will she fight alongside her father, an earthbound hunter killing fallen angels and demons, give into the demon blood coursing through her veins and join the demon world, or save the man she loves from both? The first two choices damn her, but the last one could destroy them all.

Interview with Gaby Moore
Ciara Knight

I’d love to take a moment to introduce Gaby Moore to you. I’ve shared her story in book I of the Battle for Souls series, RISE FROM DARKNESS.
Ciara: I’m so sorry for your loss. I know you were close to your mother. Can you tell us a little bit about her?
Gaby: *deep breath* She was full of life. Always had a smile on her face and ready to give a warm hug. She homeschooled me so we were very close. Oh, and she was beautiful. I’ve always been jealous of her ringlet curls because I take after my dad with his board straight hair.
Ciara: Your mother sounds like she was amazing. How have things been since the accident?
Gaby: Okay. *Runs toe along seem in worn carpet* It’s been tough on me, but even worse on Dad. He loved my mom very much.
Ciara: Is he still struggling? I mean, is he drinking?
Gaby: Yes, It’s getting worse. Since we moved to Kemp, Florida, he’s been gone a lot more. When he does return home he’s usually carrying a brown bag and stumbles to bed. He’s not the Dad I remember from before the accident.
Ciara: I’m so sorry. It must be lonely.
Gaby: Yeah, it is. I’m hoping to convince Dad to let me go to school. Homeschooling just isn’t the same without Mom.
Ciara: Why did your mom homeschool you and why won’t your dad let you attend school?
Gaby: *shifts nervously* It’s kinda hard to explain, but he works for the government as a civilian contractor. He’s always served his country. He’s a Veteran and all that. We move a lot for his job so it was easier not to enroll in school, but now I’m hoping we will stay long enough for me to finish high school.
Ciara: We wish you all the best. I hope your dad will let you attend high school.

Gaby: Me, too.
