Neverland series banner


Loving Ean (The Fae Guard #2)
by Elle Christensen.
Audience/Genre: New Adult, Paranormal Romance.
Publication: July 6th 2015.
Laila
All of my life, I dreamt of my own fairy tale romance.
Imagine my surprise when I discovered that my soul mate was a lifelong friend.
Ean is everything I want and everything I need.
But, my romance has become a fractured fairy tale.
Ean has pulled away and let his pain engulf him, leaving no room for me.
I want to heal him and bring him back to me.
But, if he won’t let me, I will move on.
I will find another destiny.

Ean
Laila is the best part of me, the light in my soul.
She is my destiny.
I want to give her all that I am, all that I have.
But, the guilt and pain from my mistake has ruined me
I am not worthy of her and I will not drag her down into my Hell.
My love for her is forever.
But, she deserves some one who isn’t broken
So, I’ll watch her walk away, into the arms of another.

*Recommended for ages 18+ due to language and sexual content


Still avoiding my gaze, he does a cursory look about the room to see if we’ve missed anything. Apparently he’s satisfied that we’ve cleaned up all traces of our little rendezvous because he walks to the door and grasps the handle; once its open, he motions for me to exit first. At the opening, I pause in front of him and wait until he finally lifts his eyes to mine. I scrutinize his blue depths and search for any difference after what we shared. No. He has shut me out once again.
“No regrets.” I leave him with the same words as always.
And, like always, he says nothing in return.
I step out into the hall and come to a sudden stop. Brannon is just leaving out of his room at the end of the hall. He smiles and opens his mouth to speak, but then his eyes dart past me and his lips come together in a grim line. I can only imagine what he is seeing. Rumpled clothes, messy hair, swollen lips, and glowing skin. This is the second time he has run into us in this state, but this time, there is no question what just happened. It’s pretty damn clear.
Brannon starts toward us but his eyes are on Ean. I decide to let him deal with it and walk away, albeit slowly, so that I can eavesdrop a little.
“Dude,” Brannon’s voice is low and accusatory, “Please tell me that you did not just fuck Aden’s sister with him in the next room.”
“Watch how you fucking talk about her, Brannon.” Ean growls.
Silence.
“Relax.” Ean’s voice is laid back now, almost nonchalant. “We were just blowing off some steam. Don’t make more of it than it is.”
His words cause tears to prick behind my eyes. One of the worst things about complete honesty is that you can’t pretend that someone is lying to save yourself from pain. Ean truly believes that’s what we are. And, somehow, I’ve let him continue to believe that I’m ok with it. Yep, I’m as much to blame for this as he is.
I blink away the moisture. I don’t deserve to wallow in self-pity, especially since I know, the next time he comes to me, I won’t turn him away.

I’m a lover of all things books, a hopeless romantic, and have always had a passion for writing. Between being a sappy romantic, my love of an HEA, my crazy imagination, and ok, let’s be real, my dirty mind, I fell easily into writing romance.
I’m a huge baseball fan and yet, a complete girly, girl. I’m an obsessive reader and have a slight (hahaha! Slight? Yeah, right) addiction to signed books.
I’m married to my very own book boyfriend, an alpha male with a sexy, sweet side. He is the best inspiration, my biggest supporter and the love of my life. He is also incredibly patient and understanding about the fact that he has to fight the voices in my head for my attention.
I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoyed writing them!

Cover Reveal: Mist on Water by Shea Berkley

Mist on Water
by Shea Berkley.
Audience/Genre: Fantasy, Historical, Young Adult.
Publication: July 13th 2015.
Long ago, in a far off land, there rose a tale as old as the earth.

As long as Ryne can remember, his parents told him to beware the nix in the lake. From the day he was born, the tale of the nix and how she demanded Ryne as her prize for setting his captured father free has defined Ryne's life. No matter what he does, he can't shed its curse...in everyone's eyes, Ryne is doomed to die.

Nari is the only one who befriends Ryne, and loves him without fear despite the villagers' relentless jeers. But when Ryne disappears beneath the cold waters of the lake, everyone believes he's dead. Everyone except Nari.

Now it's up to Nari to defy her family, her village and the legend of the nix to bring Ryne back from his watery prison or they'll both be lost. forever.



Shea Berkley started out writing nonfiction (not so fun) and quickly moved into fiction (totally fun), and knew she'd found her calling. (Her family was thrilled she'd found friends to play with even if they weren't technically real.) She's still pleasantly surprised people are willing to pay to read her stories. Besides writing, her many diversions include kickboxing, reading awesome books and hanging out with her loud and rambunctious family. With five kids (all girls), her biggest job is to make sure the little darlings don't harass the neighbors and then play dumb when the cops come knocking on her door.

Just Couldn't Put It Down July Hop



This is about Books you couldn't put down! So, I am offering a Gift Card at Amazon. There are so many books that I loved and couldn't put down. I have a few below. But I also want to know what books you loved that you couldn't put down! Here are some in different audiences.....


Saving Marilee
by Annette K. Larsen.
Audience/Genre: Historical Fiction, Clean Romance.
Publication: May 1st 2015 by Hidden Falls Publishing.
Marriage wasn't bliss—not for Marilee. Instead of finding contentment with the handsome son of a sovereign duke, she found betrayal and neglect. And fear. A fear that finally lifts when her husband dies, freeing her from his domineering hand. But freedom alone can't give her peace, and she must battle to regain her love for life, rebuild her happiness, and reclaim the ability to trust. When her charming neighbor intrudes on her quiet life, she must determine whether his interest is genuine, and whether he deserves the fragile bit of trust she has managed to scrape together. However, trusting is a risk, and she has vowed never to put herself at the mercy of someone else’s whims. Can Marilee take that chance, knowing how terribly she’s chosen before? She doesn’t know if she can survive being wrong again.


Nowhere But Here (Thunder Road #1)
by Katie McGarry.
Audience/Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Romance.
Publication: May 26th 2015 by Harlequin Teen.
An unforgettable new series from acclaimed author Katie McGarry about taking risks, opening your heart and ending up in a place you never imagined possible.

Seventeen-year-old Emily likes her life the way it is: doting parents, good friends, good school in a safe neighborhood. Sure, she's curious about her biological father—the one who chose life in a motorcycle club, the Reign of Terror, over being a parent—but that doesn't mean she wants to be a part of his world. But when a reluctant visit turns to an extended summer vacation among relatives she never knew she had, one thing becomes clear: nothing is what it seems. Not the club, not her secret-keeping father and not Oz, a guy with suck-me-in blue eyes who can help her understand them both.

Oz wants one thing: to join the Reign of Terror. They're the good guys. They protect people. They're…family. And while Emily—the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club's most respected member—is in town, he's gonna prove it to her. So when her father asks him to keep her safe from a rival club with a score to settle, Oz knows it's his shot at his dream. What he doesn't count on is that Emily just might turn that dream upside down.

No one wants them to be together. But sometimes the right person is the one you least expect, and the road you fear the most is the one that leads you home.


Withering Hope
by Layla Hagen.
Audience/Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance.
Publication: January 19th 2015.
Aimee’s wedding is supposed to turn out perfect. Her dress, her fiancé and the location—the idyllic holiday ranch in Brazil—are perfect.

But all Aimee’s plans come crashing down when the private jet that’s taking her from the U.S. to the ranch—where her fiancé awaits her—defects mid-flight and the pilot is forced to perform an emergency landing in the heart of the Amazon rainforest.

With no way to reach civilisation, being rescued is Aimee and Tristan’s—the pilot—only hope. A slim one that slowly withers away, desperation taking its place. Because death wanders in the jungle under many forms: starvation, diseases. Beasts.

As Aimee and Tristan fight to find ways to survive, they grow closer. Together they discover that facing old, inner agonies carved by painful pasts takes just as much courage, if not even more, than facing the rainforest.

Despite her devotion to her fiancé, Aimee can’t hide her feelings for Tristan—the man for whom she’s slowly becoming everything. You can hide many things in the rainforest. But not lies. Or love.

Withering Hope is the story of a man who desperately needs forgiveness and the woman who brings him hope. It is a story in which hope births wings and blooms into a love that is as beautiful and intense as it is forbidden.
