Cover Reveal: “The Mind Witch” By Author Nicole Demery, #ParanormalRomanceMystery ~ Release Date: March 1st 2021 ~ #NicoleDemeryAuthor @WildfireMarket1

 Release Date: March 1
 
My plan was simple and…mostly ordinary. Finish my PhD. Teach Celtic mythology in a tiny college town. Stop hearing the thoughts and feelings of every person I happened to meet.
As a wayward seer just coming into her powers, I couldn’t avoid the last one.
But the first two were just within my reach when sorcerer-particle physicist Jonathan Lynch appeared one chilly winter morning along two other shocks:
The death of my grandmother, the most powerful seer in a generation;
And the mysterious box she protected, which just might have belonged to Pandora.
Suddenly I was tangled in a secret that had been unraveling for years, and my unruly talents and complicated inheritance were at the heart of it all.
Ordinary life would have to wait.
The extraordinary was coming for me after all.

📝REVIEW📝: Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco ~🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟~ Genre: #YA #Fantasy #Historical ~Available Now!~

Synopsis:

Two sisters.

One brutal murder.

A quest for vengeance that will unleash Hell itself…

And an intoxicating romance.

Emilia and her twin sister Vittoria are streghe – witches who live secretly among humans, avoiding notice and persecution. One night, Vittoria misses dinner service at the family’s renowned Sicilian restaurant. Emilia soon finds the body of her beloved twin…desecrated beyond belief. Devastated, Emilia sets out to find her sister’s killer and to seek vengeance at any cost-even if it means using dark magic that’s been long forbidden.

Then Emilia meets Wrath, one of the Wicked-princes of Hell she has been warned against in tales since she was a child. Wrath claims to be on Emilia’s side, tasked by his master with solving the series of women’s murders on the island. But when it comes to the Wicked, nothing is as it seems…

My Review:

This might just be my favorite book of all time.

Emilia and her sister Vittoria are twin witches living in Palermo, Sicily. Life is all fun and games until Vittoria turns up brutally murdered with her heart cut out. Turns out someone has been killing witches. But why? Emilia intends to find out. She has turned vengeful after the lost of her sister and she will stop at nothing until she finds the killer and makes them pay. So her brilliant plan includes summoning one of the seven princes of Hell, Wrath, and binding him to her so he is forced to help her solve the mystery. They are mortal enemies but Emilia will cross any line for revenge.

The best way to describe this book was deliciously wicked. I love morally gray characters and this book is full of them. First of all there is Wrath who is literally a prince of Hell so his personality should obviously be evil. But surprisingly he is a lot more well mannered and tolerable than one would think. Then there is Emilia who starts off as a really sweet white witch but slowly becomes twisted by grief and vengeance. Emilia is cunning but still tries to keep to her morals…when she remembers them. I loved both of these main characters so much because they have such an interesting dynamic. They really don’t like each other but for some reason they feel some pull to each other. Wrath will do just about anything to get what he wants and Emilia will do just about anything to find her sister’s killer. Truly a match made in Hell.

There really isn’t too much romance in this book which I loved. The description makes it seem like this book is more of a romance but it really isn’t. This is the story about a girl who lost her twin sister and wants nothing more than to make the murderer pay. Romance is the last thing on her mind. That doesn’t mean that there isn’t some stirrings between certain characters. It was the perfect amount of romance. Not that much but just enough to want more of it.

This book leaves you with a lot of questions but this is a series so that shouldn’t be an issue. I’ll get my answers eventually. My only critique is that I wish we were told more information and not as kept in the dark. It makes sense though because we follow Emilia who is very much kept in the dark about everything from everyone.

I adored the atmosphere of this book. As a Sicilian (American) named Emily who’s family hails from Palermo and always wished she could be a witch you can imagine how much I connected to this book. It was very nostalgic of my culture and it was almost like I could live out a life I always wanted. Well maybe minus the whole summoning demons thing. The food descriptions were incredible and this book made me so hungry. I want nothing more than to go to Sicily right now

I can’t wait for the next book in the series. I highly recommend this book if you are on the fence about checking it out. It’s definitely worth it.

#NewRelease ~ “Blood Ties” Series: The Abiding Series Book 2, by Author: B.C. Morin, Genre: Paranormal Romance Suspense, Release Date: August 21, 2020, is Available Now! ~ @BCMorinauthor @EJBookPromos


Title: Blood Ties
Series: The Abiding Series Book 2
Author: B.C. Morin
Genre: Paranormal Romance Suspense
Release Date: August 21, 2020
Can you ever truly escape your past?
 
B.C. Morin returns to her world of vampires, werewolves, nephilim, and the carefully created hybrids who are now fighting to keep the crumbling peace between the species.
 
“The past cannot be changed, forgotten, edited, or erased. It can only be accepted.” ~Unknown
 
Especially if the past made you the rare immortal hybrid you are today.
Emeline Huntley is a survivor. A reluctant immortal who has lived through losing her family, being experimented on, wearing a clockwork collar that could behead her at any moment, and being under the control of one of the most ruthless men she has ever had the displeasure to know. Now, she and her lethal and intoxicating husband Alexander, also a hybrid have become peace-keepers. If you consider vigilante mercenaries for hire, peace-keepers, that is.
Emeline and Alexander have been thrust into the center of a surge of murders that threatens the already fragile state of affairs between vampires and werewolves. When a hooded figure targets them at home in the States and they run out of answers here, Emeline and Alexander have to go home to England. Fighting ghosts of the past as much as the enemies of the present, they find that this is far more than a species war. Someone is playing a deadly game and Emeline and Alexander are in their way.
Enemies are gaining ground as danger closes in on the couple and the past they have tried so hard to avoid rushes back. Calling on the very vampire and werewolf they were created from, Alexander and Emeline try to get to the bottom of it all and stop the mysterious figure before more lives are taken. But as the dead ends keep piling up, time is running out…


Originally from Miami, Florida, award winning author B.C. Morin now lives in Jacksonville, Florida with her husband, two children, and American Bullhuahua, Max.

#CoverReveal ~ The Black Angel Book Legend Series, by Author: Hope Irving, Genre: Paranormal Romance, Release Dates Below 👇 ~ @HI_author @EJBookPromos

Only a madman would put a monk and a witch together. That was then, in 9th century Ireland. When the head of The Abhayam employed my calligraphy skills to craft a book of spells that only Deirdre could master, the Black Angel Book was born. Its coveted secrets sealed our fate. To save us, she cast a spell that would endure the ages. She can’t remember. I’ll never forget. Fallen from grace, our souls wander from one life to the next until we recognize each other. Again.

 

This is now, in a free-spirited part of Cape Cod. I’m a mere shell of the man that once fought for the woman he loved. I don’t know what she looks like, but her soul yearns for mine. My faceless soulmate has haunted my dreams for so long that when she shows up at my summer seminar, I hesitate. She has no idea the danger she’s in. She has no idea the lengths I’ll go to in order to keep her safe. She has no idea the magic I inherited is both a gift and a curse. If I can rekindle her memory, she’ll regain her power, and together, we can make this legend a reality.
For eternity.

 

 

Only a stupid girl would question the summer obsession who helped her to feel again. Afraid of exposing her wounded heart to the wrong person, again. Afraid of risking everything for the wrong reasons. Afraid of admitting that her rational mind has been wrong all along.
 
Urban legend. Magical book. Destined soulmates. These make no more sense than my uncontrollable attraction to my teacher. Am I wrong to overthink my relationship with a man whose secrets threaten my sanity?
 
And just when I thought all hope was gone, a fun, hot, and willing knight in shining armor saves the day. 
I never expected to be torn between two very different men. I never expected to follow my body’s lead. I never expected this summer in Cape Cod to be a game changer. Ever.
Only a heartless monster would disregard his sudden misfortune and continue to follow this path. The summer’s gone and so is the long-lost soulmate that he let slip through his talented fingers. 

 

Perhaps my eerie secrets shouldn’t have stopped me the first time around. After all, the calligrapher-monk and his witch lover found a way, so why not us?
I’ve already overcome so many obstacles. I’ll do anything in my power to get her back. I fear nothing. Not the distance that I voluntarily put between us. Not the rival that she intentionally put in my way. Not the time that we’re unfortunately wasting.
She’s been offered a new life in New York, but that won’t stop me from showing her that appearances can be deceiving.
We may be apart for now, but our attraction is meant to be, so we’re inevitable. Right?

 

 

Only an ungrateful bastard would refuse to thank his lucky stars. Lucky that he fell into the lap of one of the most prominent members of The Abhayam. Lucky that his skills landed him a well-deserved life in New York. Lucky that he accidentally unearthed the person his organization has hunted for centuries.
 
Until my luck ran out when my first Thanksgiving party turned into a disaster.
 
The star-crossed lovers should have been punished long ago; the ones who host their souls need to pay. Nothing can stop me. Not them. Not my supposed father who taught me well. Not the serial killer and his ridiculous trademark bouquet. His threat to the lives of my fellow solders must be handled. I’ll show no mercy. I’m ready to up my game, prove myself, and figure out how to master the Black Angel Book’s ultimate spell. Once and for all.
Only a devoted monk would deny forbidden feelings that conflict with the God he serves. He would not obsess over a woman. He would not seduce. He would not reveal unbelievable truths.
 
Good thing I’m not that monk anymore, although I do host his bewitched soul. Oddly enough, my best friend and my stubborn girl become suddenly inseparable on a Parisian trip that proves fruitful. They help each other cope with a painful reality. She helps him evolve into a better person without realizing it. He helps her jumpstart her memory, opening her eyes to lies that she formerly embraced.
 
Thanks to an extra push from a dreamcatcher, her true nature is strengthening gradually, making my rightful claim clear. Nonnegotiable.
Only a rookie witch would attempt to turn her dreams into reality. Like training in secret to push the boundaries of her gifts. Like causing the man of her dreams to appear out of thin air. Like making traitors pay for their misdeeds.

 

The dreamcatcher has opened my mind to a new reality that my rational side would never have suspected. As for my awakening gifts, some would call them a miracle. Others would call them a curse. I’m undecided.
Interpretation of good and bad is a simple matter of where you stand. I stand tall. I stand proud. I stand happy. So, for your own good, you’d better not stand in my way! Got it?

 

 

Only an unusual cat would know that having multiple lives is no a myth. Myths are meant to be read about, not experienced. Myths are filled with boundless hope and insane dreams. Myths are what spur believers forward.

 

Well, believe me, plenty of myths are part of your reality. Witchcraft. Spells. Warlocks. This was my reality, once upon a time, until I was trapped within a foreign body centuries ago., I’ve learned to tinker with my magic until I find the right people… And I think I just did. The many lives I’ve lived and the vast knowledge I’ve gained will pay off. At last.

 

 

Only the darkest soul would seek limitless power. Revenge. War. Cast the spell of eternity. Centuries later, it’s time to play again. Some pawns changed. Some remained. Others are back from the past. Now is the time to pick a side…
 
As life throws me curveballs, I struggle with my choices. Owning my forgotten gifts taught me that I was a queen, indeed… but which kind?
 
My journey proved that the infamous urban legend was truer—and closer to home— than I’d ever anticipated. I cannot allow the Black Angel Book to fall into the wrong hands. If an ancient spell between star-crossed lovers defines my present, I’ll learn to master it so I can shape my future with the man I love. Forever… or not.
Hope Irving lives in Paris, France, with her supportive husband and creative teenage
 
daughter. The French indie author spent a couple of years in Texas, where she earned her MBA. With many friends, relatives, and readers in the States, the US has a big place in her heart. Although French is her mother tongue, she chose to write her novels in English because it simply feels right for her characters.
Hope’s suspenseful and complex love stories are modern fairytales that feature an unconventional Prince Charming and a headstrong heroine. A natural introvert, she enjoys tormenting her flawed characters with a hint of darkness and sometimes magical elements. Still, her heart melts when love conquers all.
Her work has been described as “genre-defying,” “refreshingly unique,” and “an intriguing rollercoaster read.”

Title: Poison Pill

Series: Affinity Guild Files #3
Author: Amelia Simone
Genre: Sci-Fi Romance w/PNR
Release Date: July 2, 2020
Welcome back to the world of the Affinity Guilds . . . can a pariah Guild princess and a pilot with a hazy past find something more than comfort amidst chaos?
Victoria Gardner was used to being the villain in other people’s stories. ‘Poison Pucker’ in the press translated to ‘pariah’ in the Guilds. Her affinity made her dangerous, but only to those who crossed her. When she arrives home to discover her sister abducted, it ignites every protective instinct. Kidnap and blackmail were trouble enough, but needing a stranger’s help to save her sister was worse. Trustworthy allies were few and far between in her life.
Dominic Dawes is done risking his life for the greater good. He needs to get paid. His for-hire status and transport pod make him the perfect partner for Victoria’s rescue attempt. His cocky attitude and rough brand of handsome are the only red flags.

Their journey through the jungles is steamy and dangerous, filled with unexpected players crashing their plans.

One night together left them both thirsty for more. Can Victoria save her sister without sacrificing her heart? Will Dom’s need for credits keep him on mission when he discovers Victoria isn’t what she seems, and his old life beckons?

Poison Pill is Book 3 of the Affinity Guild Files series, but can be read as a stand-alone sci fi romance. Check out Trojan Con and Revenge Gambit to catch up on earlier Affinity Guild adventures.
