Release Day Event: Darkness Dawn by E.I Jennings



The day has finally arrived...welcome everyone to Darkest Dawn and the darkness...

Book – Darkest Dawn – Book Two in The Jessica Dawn Series
Author – E.I Jennings
Genre – Paranormal Erotica
Release Date – 31st August 2013



The Darkest Days are finally upon us and the Daughters of Eve shall rise again. 
Jess sacrificed herself for the people she loved but she now has to pay the consequences for her actions because something dark is coming and it is heading straight for her. She really did not think her life could get any more complicated but when another tall dark stranger walks back into her life she realises she has a decision to make. All she wants is for everyone to leave her alone and let her live the life she thought she once had but things are getting out of control fast. The love she has for Reuban can only ground her for so long and her anger is beginning to spiral out of control. If she tells him how she really feels she could lose him forever or get him killed and that is a risk she could never forgive herself for. 
The Council have accepted her for what she is but has she? There is a huge possibility everyone she loves is going to die if she stays, but if she walks away she will have to leave the love of her life behind and that would rip her soul apart.
The only way out is to work with the one person she hates more than anything in this world and that was going to take a lot of self-restraint if she was going to get through this nightmare without killing him.
Reuban can see the torment within Jess and it is breaking his heart. He would do anything to ease her pain even if it meant letting her walk away, destroying him in the process. His only hope is to seek guidance from Brigate and finally understand the true meaning of Megan's Prophecy. It started with a Prophecy and it is there he will find the truth and it is a secret that could tear the Council to pieces.
A fractured alliance will be formed again with a new generation of warriors and Jess is at its centre. The war is about to begin and a destiny will finally be fulfilled!



Exclusive Teaser:

Death & Maria…

I stood staring through the glass partition when I saw that ginger Empath look up and storm in my direction.  I rolled my eyes and sighed.  Why did I always have to receive abuse from women?  Civilisations had bowed down to me in fear and now I couldn’t even scare a stupid Empath!
“What the hell do you think you’re doin?”  She was stood in my way with her hand on her hips and it was taking all of my self-control not to move her out of the way.  Jess was obviously feeling elated because her wings were fully outstretched,
“I’M GOING TO SEE MY DAUGHTER, NOT THAT IT’S ANY OF YOUR BUSINESS!” I frowned,
“And you can cut that out right now!”  And now the silly woman was pouting and tapping her foot.  This will not do at all!
“DO YOU NOT KNOW WHO I AM YOU SILLY CREATURE?” I bellowed.  That should have scared her but I watched in amazement when she looped her arm in mine and turned us around.  I found myself looking over my shoulder at Jess kissing her wolf while I was being manhandled by a woman,
“Yadda, yadda, yadda, I know exactly who you are and if you call me a stupid ginger Empath once more I’m slapping your face.  Oh and you can pack that stupid voice in as well.  It doesn’t work on me when Jess does it and it sure as hell won’t work coming from Death, so you can just stop it!”
“HOW DARE YOU SPEAK…”
“Seriously!  When was the last time you spoke normal?  I’m betting you didn’t speak to Eve like that, in fact I bet you were all hearts and flowers before you knocked her up?” she interrupted.  If she wasn’t careful I would judge her right here.  How dare she speak to me in this manner!
“HOW…”  Heavens above, she was interrupting me again!  She stopped and stood in front of me placing her hand on my arm,
“Look cut the crap!  I can feel how worried you are for Jess so be her father for once and not a ‘know it all’ celestial being.  Her voice scares the shit out of her and I’m guessing you had a hand in saving her again so please try and be normal for her.”
“LOOK…” I coughed.  I couldn’t believe a stupid ginger Empath was making me change my voice but here I was doing just that, “…she is my daughter and I couldn’t let her die so I helped her along a little.  Not that it’s any of your business might I add!” I sighed,
“The name is Maria by the way, NOT the stupid ginger Empath!  Jess is ok but she will need time to come to terms with the fact you’re here.  When Eve died it destroyed her and she’s felt alone ever since.  Deep down she doesn’t even hate you, she regrets not knowing you and so barging in there isn’t going to do you any good.  I have no idea what you’re doing here because Jess isn’t ready and you have incredibly shit timing!” she pouted,
“I am here to protect my daughter from the approaching darkness and if I go back now Evelyn will have my balls!”  I seemed to have an uncontrollable urge to talk to this woman and it was annoying.
“Excuse me, Evelyn?” she questioned looking puzzled.  Of course, she wouldn’t know Evelyn was in the mists with me,
“Yes Evelyn, my wife and Jess’ mother.  She would not be pleased if I simply ran back home without trying to help our daughter!” I scowled,
“Eve is with you?” she said astonished,
“Yes.  Has anyone told you that you’re nosey for a crossbreed?” I said raising an eyebrow,
“But she died?”
“Yes indeed she did!”  Maria was starting to try my patience,
“And you didn’t judge her?”  Her voice was sounding an octave higher probably from the shock,
“It was not my place to!”
“Because she was your wife?”
“ENOUGH WITH THE QUESTIONS!  EVELYN IS NOT YOUR CONCERN AND NEITHER IS JESS.  IF YOU DO NOT STEP OUT OF MY WAY I WILL SMITE YOU!” I bellowed shacking the light fittings.  I stood in absolute horror when the stupid ginger Empath started laughing,
“Oh...sorry…wait…can’t breathe…oh God…smite!” she snorted and I raised an eyebrow.  It was no wonder Bunny and Jess liked this woman because she was insane,
“Will you stop laughing?”  Even I was starting to smile,

“I swear if you call me a stupid ginger Empath once more…I mean it!  You know Eve was my friend and it was my job to protect her.  I’m now friends with Jess and if you think I’m gonna let you stroll in there and upset her after she’s been asleep for six weeks you really have another thing coming!  You may be a scary Archangel but you’re also a father and it’s about time you stepped up to your responsibilities.  I promise you that once she is a little more stable I will take great pleasure in introducing you but for now just let her have a little time with the man she loves, please.”

Wes Elliott just met his match…and she might actually burn his entire world down. Surfing and sex. This is Wes Elliott's life. And it's just the way he likes it. ` After seeing his parents stay in a loveless marriage his entire life, and burying away a heartbreak from his past, he knows where romance is best left: crappy chick movies. He'd rather lust and eventually leave, and that's exactly what the plan was when he met Lana Langston. Except…turns out she’s only in it for the thrills, too. She's always only in it for the thrills: life in the literal fast lane on her motorcycle, and the hot nights in forbidden places without the awkward talks in the mornings after. She's Wes Elliott in way tighter jeans. So, this should be perfect, right? But the more time Wes spends with her, the more he wants the nights to turn into mornings. And maybe even longer. Suddenly, it isn't so perfect for him anymore. And the things he thought were buried are digging themselves up. Now Wes is in a lot of trouble. He’s falling in love with the one girl who might be a bigger risk than even a guy who gets barreled by the most dangerous waves in the world is willing to take on. Can Wes and Lana figure out a way to make it work? Or is he headed for something far more reckless? 
  
Due to the sexual content, language and violence, this work is not recommended for readers under 18.  





          
A.J. Sand grew up an only child whose parents bought her many, many books to keep her busy, so it was only natural that she would start writing her own stories. She is the author of “Documentary,” “Remake” and “Recklessly.” She lives just outside of Washington, D.C.

Cover Reveal Nightmares from Within by Jessica Prince





Book Tittle: Nightmares from Within
Author: Jessica Prince
Genre: Romantic Thriller
Release Date: October 8, 2013




I can see how a person is going to die.
I don't know when and I don't always know who but it's a curse I've had since childhood.
There are people who call what I see a gift but I disagree. After years of trying to ignore the visions that haunt me I'm being told I have to embrace this "gift".
If I refuse the punishment will be catastrophic.
Embracing the nightmares within my own mind is the only way I can save myself... and HIM.
The only man I've ever let close.
The only man I've ever loved.
Can I let go of the fear I've carried around my whole life in order to save him?
I just don't know.



I'm a wife, mother, wino, coffee addict and avid a lover of all types of books, but romances are my main favs. My husband likes to say reading is my obsession but I just say it's my passion... there's a difference. 

I've been writing since I was a little kid and I finally decided to take the leap and actually publish when Picking up the Pieces came to me. Now that I've been bitten by the writing bug I just can't seem to stop.

5 Star Review: The Highest Bidder by Jenika Snow



Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/Highest-Bidder-Virgin-Auctions-ebook/dp/B00DYCWBGM/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1373972270&sr=1-1&keywords=jenika+snow+the+highest+bidder

Evernight Publishing - http://www.evernightpublishing.com/the-highest-bidder-by-jenika-snow/

When Kristoff St. Michael's sees Veronica Dubois, he knows he will own her. Being the highest bidder at the Virgin Auctions wasn't difficult, especially when he had never wanted something as much as he wanted her. With a scarred past, Kristoff hopes he can start a new life with his young, virgin bride.

Veronica knows that she must give herself to Kristoff, but she doesn't know is if her new husband will be gentle or cruel. But Veronica isn't Krostoff's first wife, and she fears she will forever be the shadow of a dead woman.

As their relationship grows, and the once virtual strangers find out the most intimate details of their lives, they both realize a future together doesn't seem unattainable.

But their happiness is short-lived when Kristoff's past and jealousy threaten to tear them apart for good. 

~Stand-alone title featuring Kristoff and Veronica from THE FIRST TIME~







I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review

First off let me start by admitting my obsession for Kristoff St. Micheals. OMG that name just sends me into a quivering mess of shivers. If I was ever going to leave my husband for a book boyfriend Kristoff is the man I would do it for. 

When Jenika said she was going to write a follow up story to The First Time I damn near peed my pants with excited giggles. The first book I ever read by Jenika was the start of Kristoff’s and Veronica’s journey. What I had expected to read was a dark twisted romance but what I got was a beautiful romantic tale of love. *Sigh* When I finished reading The First Time book one in the Virgin Auction series I desperately needed more and Jenika delivered with The Highest Bidder.

Ok, yes Kristoff purchased Veronica at an auction but remember that is the norm in 2135. He didn’t purchase her as a slave but as a wife to love, cherish and grow old with. It will just melt your heart when you realize how much Kristoff loves Veronica. 

“She was his wife and someday he hoped she would love him
the way he knew he would grow to love her.”

The Highest Bidder was so much more then just a love story, it has mystery, suspense and the hottest most romantic love scene every. I melted on the floor when Kristoff said 

"I want to go slow with you, take my time and savor every moment."

Swoon!!! He’s perfect and has two gorgeous brothers. HOT DAMN!

So would I recommend The Highest Bidder?? HELL YES!! 
Would I read it again?? HELL YES!!
Should you read The First Time and The Highest Bidder?? HELL YES!!



I still need more Kristoff!! Please Jenika maybe you could squeeze him into a story for his brothers. :)

She tilted her head back, and I planted a wet kiss on her mouth. I pulled back quickly, shocked at the spark I felt when our lips had met, and I kept dancing as she laced her fingers through mine on her hips. She grinned up at me, and I found that I really enjoyed just looking down at her gorgeous face.
I leaned down close to her ear, and I caught a whiff of her scent. She smelled like a citrus picnic on a summer day. I wanted to spread out a blanket and make myself comfortable.
“I’m moving out of Arizona in two days,” I said.
Her grin widened when I pulled back, and she reached up and curled her hand around my neck, pulling me down so her lips feathered against my ear.
“Perfect. I’m looking for something without strings anyway.”
Did she really just say that? She wanted it as much as I did.
She had given me permission to ravish her for just one night.
This was the perfect woman.
