Aveoth by Laurann Dohner

Ruth West - Thursday, August 10, 2017

Jillian Milzner has lived a life on the run. Her biological sperm donor has made it clear he wishes she’d never been born. Most kids get presents from their dads growing up. He sent thugs to make death threats to ensure she never tries to find him. He needn’t have bothered, since she wants nothing to do with Decon Filmore. His father, however, thinks Jill might be useful. Things go from bad to worse when her grandfather’s goons snatch her up to deliver her to a man both terrifying…and straight out of her sexiest daydreams.

Lord Aveoth isn’t surprised to hear from Decker Filmore. The man is desperate to make the GarLycan lord call off the hunt for his life, and equally determined to reclaim his VampLycan clan. To achieve both goals, he’ll offer Aveoth yet another half-human granddaughter from his bloodline.

It’s lonely being a lord of a clan, so Aveoth agrees to the meeting—and he’s instantly attracted to Jill. He’s also angry to learn she’s been brought to him against her will, but he still wants to keep her. Even if it exposes his darkest secret…which could tear his clan apart.

Fugitive By Magic by Jasmine Walt

Ruth West - Sunday, August 06, 2017

What happened to Fenris after he fled Solantha? Find out in this epic new trilogy following the events of Scorched by Magic from the Baine Chronicles…

Fenris is no stranger to picking up the pieces of his life and starting over. Three years ago, he was forced to flee his life as Chief Mage of Nebara, and undergo a magical procedure that changed him into a shifter and forever altered the course of his future.

But even though adjusting to life as a shifter was hard, Fenris had friends in Solantha. This time, to save his friends from being caught up in his own troubles, he's fled to Abbsville, a small human town with less than one-thousand people. And not a single ally to rely on.

Or so he thinks.

Not long after he arrives in town, Fenris finds himself entangled with Mina—a beautiful veterinarian with a heart of gold, and secrets lurking behind her gentle smile. Fenris knows he should stay away, but he has never been able to turn away when an innocent is in trouble. And it doesn't take him very long to realize that Mina is in a whole world of it.

If Fenris and Mina want to keep their secrets intact, they are going to have to learn to trust each other. But trust is a hard thing to give, especially when you’ve spent your entire life running…

Don't miss the first book in this epic tale. Scroll up and grab your copy today!

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a spinoff series following the events of SCORCHED BY MAGIC, Book 7 in the Baine Chronicles series. While you are not required to have read the previous series to enjoy this one, it is highly recommended that you do. Unlike the Baine Chronicles, which is written from Sunaya's POV, this spinoff is written in dual first person POV-- in other words, from the viewpoints of both Fenris and Mina. Sunaya's series contains foul language, violence, and some adult situations, whereas Fenris's story has tamer language but much more romance.

The Hundredth Queen by Emily R. King

Ruth West - Thursday, July 20, 2017

In Emily R. King’s thrilling fantasy debut, an orphan girl blossoms into a warrior, summoning courage and confidence in her fearless quest to upend tradition, overthrow an empire, and reclaim her life as her own.

As an orphan ward of the Sisterhood in the ancient Tarachand Empire, eighteen-year-old Kalinda is destined for nothing more than a life of seclusion and prayer. Plagued by fevers, she’s an unlikely candidate for even a servant’s position, let alone a courtesan or wife. Her sole dream is to continue living in peace in the Sisterhood’s mountain temple.

But a visit from the tyrant Rajah Tarek disrupts Kalinda’s life. Within hours, she is ripped from the comfort of her home, set on a desert trek, and ordered to fight for her place among the rajah’s ninety-nine wives and numerous courtesans. Her only solace comes in the company of her guard, the stoic but kind Captain Deven Naik.

Faced with the danger of a tournament to the death—and her growing affection for Deven—Kalinda has only one hope for escape, and it lies in an arcane, forbidden power buried within her.

Secondborn by Amy A. Bartol

Ruth West - Friday, July 14, 2017

Firstborns rule society. Secondborns are the property of the government. Thirdborns are not tolerated. Long live the Fates Republic.

On Transition Day, the second child in every family is taken by the government and forced into servitude. Roselle St. Sismode’s eighteenth birthday arrives with harsh realizations: she’s to become a soldier for the Fate of Swords military arm of the Republic during the bloodiest rebellion in history, and her elite firstborn mother is happy to see her go.

Televised since her early childhood, Roselle’s privileged upbringing has earned her the resentment of her secondborn peers. Now her decision to spare an enemy on the battlefield marks her as a traitor to the state.

But Roselle finds an ally—and more—in fellow secondborn conscript Hawthorne Trugrave. As the consequences of her actions ripple throughout the Fates Republic, can Roselle create a destiny of her own? Or will her Fate override everything she fights for—even love?

Queen Of Hearts By Kristen Painter

Five Things I Love About Writing & Reading Paranormal Romance

1. The heroes are HOT!

Seriously, have you ever read a PNR that didn’t have a smoking hot hero? Whether the guy is a vampire, a werewolf or another sort of creature, PNR heroes are undeniably hot. (In my free novella, Queen of Hearts, my hero is a gargoyle who’s also ex-military. DELISH.) Not to mention broody, dangerous and often in need of a little rescuing themselves. Which brings us to the heroines…

2. The heroines aren’t shrinking violets!

At least in the books I write, my heroines are equal partners to the heroes, even if they’re human. I love a well-balanced relationship and PNR typically delivers. The heroine might be a damsel in distress, but chances are good she’s already making an attempt at saving herself. It’s just easier with the hunky hero at her side. Read More

Unexpected Eden By Rhenna Morgan

Blog Diva - Saturday, January 03, 2015

Hey, everyone! I’m very excited to visit with you and ring in the New Year with the topic of ROMANCE.

Romance books have been my drug of choice since…well, as long as I can remember. The writer in me hears fellow authors talking of classics, sci-fi, and high fantasy books, and the romantic in me runs for cover. I must have my happily ever after.

So, when it came time to pen my own novels, it only made sense I’d tackle what I loved, focusing on particular aspects my favorite authors dangled before me like Godiva chocolates in the dark, tempting moments of a too-long maintained diet.

What do those aspects look like? Well, for starters, strong heroes. The kind who’ll plow through any challenge to win their woman, and are willing to pull their head out of their ass and make themselves vulnerable if it means keeping her.  Read More
