Title: Magnus's Defeat Series: Sons Of Judgment, #3 Author: Airicka Phoenix Genre: Urban Paranormal Release Date: JULY 12, 2017
   
He swore to end her.   All Magnus had to do was pick up a package and get his brother’s child back. A simple task that any Caster worth his salt could have done in his sleep, except nothing had been that simple for him in years.   For centuries, Magnus relished in the slaughter and annihilation of the demon race. Ridding the world — and hell — of every last one was an oath he was determined to keep. But Magnus had his own gnawing beasts devouring his soul with memories of a past he was powerless to change.   Zara was something else. She was beautiful and powerful, and the very definition of evil. Yet everything about her called to him, beckoned him to forget his nightmares and vengeance. She could fix everything if he would just submit, but she was the very thing who had ruined him in the first place and Magnus submitted to no one.   But Zara proves to be much more than just the source of his agony. She’s a key to ending the war, a power that can tilt the scales and save them all, or will she be the reason he loses everything?   She may end him first.

Perfectly Flawed by J & L Wells - Release Day Blitz + Review!!

Title: Perfectly Flawed
Author: J & L Wells
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Designer: Kellie Dennis at Book Cover by Design
Editor: Sarah Cheeseman
Hosted by: Lady Amber's PR
Blurb:
Natasha and Gabriel are thrown into parenthood and this should be one of the happiest times of their lives, but unforeseen circumstances and deep-seated problems within the family destroy their happiness, rocking the very foundations of their relationship in a way they could never have imagined. The gift of new life, rather than creating a special bond between them and bringing the pair closer together, is tearing them apart.
Josh, Natasha’s ex, is back on the scene with an offer the family are unable to refuse, forcing old feelings to resurface and bringing further complications to Natasha’s life.
Perfectly Flawed is a second-chance romance novel. There’s no denying that Natasha and Gabriel’s relationship had anything but the perfect start, so don’t they deserve their happy ever after, their perfect ending?

My Review:

I fell in love with Tash and Gabe in book 1, and more so in book 2. Perfectly Flawed was all about their relationship, and the ups and downs and many obstacles they faced. The writing is real and beautiful. It puts you there alongside the characters. Feeling what they felt. I even cried at one point. I definitely recommend this. Can't wait for book 3! 5/5 Stars!
Laura Wells has a love of books, animals and, of course, Jane Austen. She enjoys spending her spare time with her family and two mad Shiba Inus. She lives in Staffordshire, England.
Laura and Judy are a mother and daughter duo; with Judy's love of poetry and writing and Laura's ideas, they work extremely well together. Time-travel and romance novels are their passion.

The Guardians of Ivalice by Laura Catherine - Cover Reveal!!!




Title: The Guardians of Ivalice
Author: Laura Catherine 
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy Release Date: 
June 24, 2017
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.



On Ivalice, Prince Morgan has been living in the shadow of his twin brother and older sister. She will be queen one day and inherit the power of Spirit to protect their world and guard the other elements from harm. Morgan wants this power for himself and nothing will stop him from getting it, not even his family. With her dying breath, Queen Tamsin sends the elements to another world where Morgan cannot have them.

On Earth, Nix, Grace, Kendra and Phoebe are four ordinary teenage girls living normal lives where homework and boys are their biggest problems. That is until they absorb some strange glowing balls of light into their bodies and start controlling the elements.

Everything is about to change for these girls when the weight of an entire world is put on their shoulders.



The bus was old and probably in need of replacing with ripped seats and graffiti on everything including the roof. It also smelled like those tree air fresheners.

She made her way down the aisle to her favourite spot. It was about halfway down the bus, not so close to the front that you had to sit near a teacher but not so far back that you stayed away from the school bullies in the back row.

Nix slid into her favourite seat, the one graffittied in lyrics from her favourite band Chaos Destiny.

“Hello.”

Nix looked up to see the new girl staring down at her.

“Hi,” Nix replied. “You’re the new girl.”

“Phoebe Jenkins,” she said with an awkward smile.

Poor girl, Nix thought, doesn’t know anyone.

“Ah, I’m saving the seat next to me for my friend, but you should sit in front of us.”

Phoebe looked surprised at the offer and Nix wondered if other people had been less nice to her. 

Hopefully she hadn’t been subject to the antics of the school bully, Jasper.

“Go on, sit,” Nix encouraged with a smile.

“Thank you,” Phoebe replied and perched herself on the seat ahead of Nix.

“I shotgunned the window side,” Grace said as she pushed her way through the aisle of students still taking their seats.

Nix moved out of the way so Grace could claim her prize. Grace was always last to be called for things because her last name was West.

“What did I miss?” Grace said leaning on the back of Phoebe’s seat.

“Grace this is Phoebe,” Nix introduced.

“Ah, new girl,” Grace said with a cheesy grin. “Excellent. How are you liking Verndale?”

Phoebe sat up straight, pushing a loose strand of hair behind her ear. “It is a very beautiful town,” she replied. Her voice was soft like a gentle touch of fingers on guitar strings.

“Great. Just stick with us and you can’t go wrong.” Grace winked and leaned back in her seat.

Mr. Haynes appeared at the front of the bus, ushering people to take their seats so he could do a head count.

“Now today’s excursion—”

Mr. Haynes was cut short as a dark skinned girl with a shining curtain of black hair raced up the bus steps.

“Kendra,” Mr. Haynes said a little startled. “Where have you been? I called your name a while ago.”

“I’ve been objecting,” she said giving him a dazzling white smile.

“Objecting.” Mr Haynes nodded then did a double take. “Objecting to what?”

“I’m objecting to this excursion. I shouldn’t have to be forced into a swamp against my will.”

“I am sorry, Miss Tate, but there are other places out there besides the mall,” said Mr. Cole, the sports teacher who was accompanying Mr. Haynes on the trip.

The students giggled. Kendra pouted and looked like she was going to argue the point, but Mr. Haynes asked her to take a seat.



Laura Catherine was born in Melbourne, Australia and spent most of her childhood creating fantasy worlds and talking to her invisible pet cheetah who ran along powerlines.

Her imagination has carried her through childhood where her mother read stories about fantasy worlds at bedtime. Never one to face reality, Laura spent a lot of time turning boxes into ships and castles.

Laura self-published her first novel, Djinn (2013), a Paranormal Romance, and the second in the series, Blooders (2015). Laura is currently working on the next instalment in the Djinn series, Bloodjinn, as well as a few other novels including the first in a new YA series, The Guardians of Ivalice.

Amnesia by Cambria Hebert - Cover Reveal!!!


Amnesia
Cambria Hebert
Publication date: June 12th 2017
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense
I washed ashore in a little lake town.
A place where everyone knows everyone, yet…
No one knows me.
I don’t know me.
If a woman doesn’t know her own name, does she really exist?
I don’t know my natural hair color, my birthdate, or where I live.
I am invisible.
To everyone, to everything, even to myself.
Except to him.
I see the recognition deep in his stare, the way it lingers on my face as if I’m a puzzle he’s desperate to put together.
I just want answers, the truth… knowledge.
His lips are sealed. Still, his eyes beguile me.
I can’t trust anyone, not even myself. Someone wants me dead, the same someone who tried to bury me in a watery grave.
They’ll come for me again… I won’t know their face.
I don’t even know mine.
I am amnesia.

The flames licked at my heels and without thinking, I threw my leg over the solid oak railing and pushed off. I held on for dear life as I sailed down the thick banister and landed with a thud at the bottom of the staircase. Nothing was recognizable anymore through the trenches of smoke, but I instinctively headed back the way I had come. The swinging door crashed to the ground behind me, sending shards of flaming wood my direction. I rolled to the side to avoid them and slammed my already sore shoulder into the corner of the breakfast bar.
            “Ahh,” I groaned as I inched my way along the tile floor.
            I oriented myself towards the only light I could see; a shred of night sky that peeked through glass doors ahead. The moonlight seemed pale in comparison to the smothering darkness of the black smoke around me. My head was buzzing and my vision was blurry. My hands and feet felt numb, but somehow I dragged myself over to the sliding door. I tried to get up but found I could not reach the handle. I shoved at the frame, but the door would not open. Desperate and disoriented, I rolled onto my back and kicked at the glass.
It laughed at me and held firm.
            I felt myself sinking into the floor, my limbs no longer responding to commands. My eyes would not open but I could feel the heat closing in on me. I always heard your life flashed before your eyes just before you died, but in my case it was more of a random, fleeting thought…I died trying to save a stuffed animal.           
            Tiny diamonds rained down on me and a breeze tickled my face. My body floated weightlessly through the flames.
“Liv, hold on!”
“Liv, hold on!”
             But I didn't want to hold on. I was so tired.
