Excerpt Blitz & Giveaway: Twisted Truths (Blood Brothers #3) by Rebecca Zanetti

Twisted Truths (Blood Brothers #3) by Rebecca Zanetti.
Audience/Genre: Romantic Suspense, Adult.
Publication: November 14th 2017 by Forever.
One year ago, Denver Jones blew up his life and left everything behind. To stay alive, he had no
other choice. But now, when video footage of the woman he could never forget goes viral, begging for his help, he has no choice but to go to her. Her niece has been kidnapped and Denver and his blood brothers are the only people she can trust. But Denver isn't the only one watching that video. The deadly forces from his past see it too-and they'll use anything-- and anyone-- they can to lure Denver out of hiding to exact their revenge.


Slowly, numbly, she shrugged. “I knew you were dangerous and relentless in pursuing
somebody,” she whispered. But a killer? Her search for him had held a romantic element, and
she knew it. This guy was all edge—no romance. “Am I in danger?” Her voice quivered, but
she had to know.
“Yes.” He didn’t move. Didn’t even seem to breathe.
She blinked. Rapidly. “From you?”
His eyes darkened. “No. The only thing I’m capable of breaking is your heart.”
Cold swam through her. The arrogance. “You think you broke my heart?”
His lip twisted. “I know I did.” His tone was low with what seemed like self-hatred. Dark and
raw. “I’m sorry.”
Those words. She’d needed those words and hadn’t realized how badly. “Thank you,” she said,
going on instinct. “Then how am I in danger?”
“I’m in danger, and anybody close to me is free game for an enemy who will keep coming until
I’m dead. Until everything I care about, everything I dream about, is taken away and I want
death.” He looked back down at the computer, intensity pouring from him.
Whoa. Okay. Denver didn’t have one bit of hysteria in him. His words scared her, but curiosity
still rose up. “Who?”
“Irrelevant. As soon as we get Talia back, you have to forget me. Now. Back to Richie.”
She could live forever, and she’d never forget him. Not for one second had she been able to
pretend he didn’t exist. But he was right. They had to find Talia, but he still needed to explain
more. She had a right to know everything. “I have files on everything.” She threw her pack at
Denver, and he easily caught it before it smashed him in the face.
He didn’t so much as frown. “Thank you.”
She swallowed. They were in the same room. After a year of hurting for him, he was right there
in solid form. More than solid. She hadn’t imagined his hard body or intense charisma. He
owned every room he walked into with no effort. She’d never met anybody like him, and here

he was. Her body tingled, her heart ached, and her mind spun. Yeah. Denver was definitely
there. “What now?” she asked, her eyes gritty and her throat scratchy.
“I’ll do some research.” Slowly, numbly, she shrugged. “I knew you were dangerous
and relentless in pursuing somebody,” she whispered. But a killer? Her search for him had held
a romantic element, and she knew it. This guy was all edge—no romance. “Am I in danger?”
Her voice quivered, but she had to know.
“Yes.” He didn’t move. Didn’t even seem to breathe.

Blitz: Fiancé for the Night by Melissa McClone

She needs a fiancé—for only one night.

Cassandra Daniels’ parents refuse to accept that she doesn’t need a boyfriend to be happy. To stop their meddling and matchmaking, Cassandra creates a fictional fiancé, a man who sounds so unlike their carefree and unconventional daughter that her mom and dad want to meet him for dinner, immediately.

No problem. San Francisco is a big city. Finding a fiancé won’t be that hard.

All Troy McKnight wants is a beer after a long day at work. But when a pretty blonde asks him to dinner and wants him to pretend to be her fiancé, Troy agrees to help. Playing make-believe could be fun, especially since he gets a free meal, and he’ll have a great story to tell.

When one lie leads to another, however, the fake engagement spirals into real wedding plans. Cassandra and Troy must stop the madness and put an end to their charade. But what if her fiancé for the night is the perfect husband for life?

** This second edition has been rewritten and updated. 8000 words have also been added. **

Tour & Giveaway: Safe House by Traci Hunter Abramson



Safe House by Traci Hunter Abramson.
Audience/Genre: Adult, Fiction.
Publication: October 1st 2018 by Covenant Communications.
The guardians, the shadowy heroes of the top-secret program designed to protect members of the most elite government organizations, are being hunted down one by one. There is a single explanation: a traitor must be embedded somewhere in their midst. But if they themselves are the target, who will protect them?

CIA operative Renee Niezen has heard tales of the guardians, though she's never really believed in their existence—until she is approached by Charlotte, an old friend who desperately needs her help to stop the systematic destruction of the guardian program. Renee accepts the plea for assistance, but not everyone is thrilled to have her on the team. Kade—one of the last guardians standing—is unimpressed with Renee's qualifications and turns instead to the legendary Saint Squad for help. But when Renee is caught in the crosshairs, Kade must set aside his antagonism for the woman in order to protect her. Their grudging alliance soon develops into much more—but before the pair can examine their feelings, their investigation takes a dramatic twist. With lives on the line, Renee and Kade must use their spy training at every turn as they draw dangerously close to the shocking truth.

Reviewed by Kelly.

This is a nonstop action, mystery, thriller, romance, and adventure rolled up in one awesome book!

Our characters are all smart and not afraid to get there hands dirty or go into dangerous situations. They are all skilled in different areas of government. There are SEAL’s, CIA, FBI, NSA and the secret group called the Guardians. The guardians have access to all databanks. They are all ghosts or rather the world thinks they are dead and there are death certificates if you don’t believe it. But someone is killing off the members of this group. The guardians go into and protect those in trouble. And my job as the reader was to guess where this was going to go next or who could be targeting them. We are given a clue in the beginning and we are lost at the mercy of the author for more clues. I would fail if I were in any of these groups. Haha!

Renee is CIA. She is smart but she has never been out in the field, only trained for it. She gets pulled into the guardian mess to help figure out who is killing them one by one. Renee is in until she becomes the target. Now she is being protected and is under the watchful eye of Kade or Ghost as those in the world call him. He doesn’t want her help but once she becomes the target, he will protect her at all costs. There is some chemistry between the two. Kade fights it as eventually she will go her own way and he will never be free to have a life outside of what he does. Renee's heart didn’t get that memo!

I loved the Saint Squad and their families. I think they are in another book of the authors and I might have to go and read about them.

The action really is nonstop and I felt like I had whiplash trying to keep up! Don’t think you can figure it out, because there are a few curve balls thrown in there and you keep finding yourself striking out at guessing!

If you like action, adventure, mystery, guns, government secrets, good vs evil, a little romance, family, secrets, and doing what is right then this might be for you!

Tour & Giveaway: Premonition (The Division #1) by Leigh Walker



Tour Schedule


Premonition (The Division #1) by Leigh Walker.
Audience/Genre: YA Sci-fi/Romance.
Publication: July 19th 2017 by CMG Publishing.
For fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent...this exciting new science-fiction romance series, filled with twists and turns, will take you for a wild ride!

When Riley heads off to boarding school for a summer work-study program, she knows it'll be demanding. What she doesn't expect? To be thrust into an intense physical training program described as special, exclusive and worst of all--top-secret. She signed up for tuition assistance, not to be held in a secret government facility for boot camp...

Welcome to The Division, the government agency that's so classified, most United States senators have never heard of it.

The Division wants Riley bad, but she can't figure out why. Skeptical of what she's being told, Riley's determined to uncover the truth. Boot camp is intense, physically and mentally draining. The upside? One of her new teammates is the cutest boy ever. Watching Finn hit the gym wearing a tank top doesn't suck--although sometimes his brooding attitude does. But when training forces Riley to confront her tragic past, even Finn's big biceps aren't enough to make her want to stay...

Beware: The Division isn't something you just walk away from. You better run.

Riley realizes her capabilities and strengths are greater than she'd ever imagined. But she also learns she wasn't just chosen for this special program...

She was made for it.

Reviewed by Kelly.

The summary pretty much sums up the book. The story is action packed with lots of questions and answers sprinkled along on Riley’s journey.

Riley’s mother is an alcoholic. It started after her sister and father died in an automobile accident. Riley is extremely bright and got into what she thought was a boarding school. It was a front for The Division, a secret government group that trains these kids with “gifts” to fight terrorism on American soil. At first Riley thinks they are all crazy but then she finds her own gift. But with each day comes more knowledge of what is going on and now she can’t leave. She is owned by the government.

This first book of the series is well written, it’s believable. As the reader, we are like Riley, mostly clueless and given pieces of information at a time. It keeps you wanting to read more, find out more. There is lots of action, a sprinkle of romance, embarrassment for Riley, and a kick butt team of teenagers with different gifts.

My only negative is that the summary does sum it up. There is very little in way of spoilers since the discovery of who she is is in the summary. It only leads up to that moment. Of course, now I want to know what are they going to do next and how are they going to help stop terrorism and try to be the individual self that they each are when the government knows everything about them and where they are and their emotions!

If you like action, science fiction, government conspiracies, teens with powers, a little romance, broken families, and nonstop physical and mental training then this might be for you.
