Proud ~ Review

Proud by Allyson Gottlieb
Mortal Sin Saga ~ Book #1
August 14, 2014
Pride, noun: a high or inordinate opinion of one’s own dignity, importance, merit, or superiority

Hayley Waters used to be a normal teenage girl: smart, athletic, and more or less a good person. Now she’s a weapon for the Devil.

Demon energies for each of the seven deadly sins have escaped into Los Angeles. They need a human host to bind to—a vessel for influencing others. And one has chosen Hayley. She just doesn’t know it yet.

As graduation approaches, Hayley’s life is torn apart as her demon begins to use her to wreak havoc on the city. But when two men show up, claiming to know what’s wrong with her and offering their help, will she believe them? Or will her deadly pride be her undoing?

Intense! Different! Exciting!, August 15, 2014
I wasn't sure what to think when I began reading, but I quickly decided I liked this story line and where it was headed. We have a teenage girl & her friends who just want to enjoy their last days of school before going their separate ways for college. Their friendly dynamic was enjoyable while jumping into their drama filled lives. Little did they know that the seven deadly sins would be coming out to play, changing their plans sooner than expected. Everything gets real strange real quick as Pride boasts it's ugly head! Ha! Talk about a new way to see graduation day. This fast paced, action packed excitement will keep you entertained, & before you know it THE END. Yep, it's a serial series that I will be gladly following! I can't wait to see what happens next!!

Desire ~ Mortal Sin Saga ~ Book #2
 Expected publication: September 2014
Lust, noun: intense sexual desire or appetite
Hayley Waters was looking forward to a summer of parties, chilling at the beach, and making memories with her best friends before heading off to college in the fall. What she didn’t anticipate was becoming an unwilling host for demon energy. Now, with her perfect summer up in smoke, Hayley must learn to keep her demon under control while trying not to kill the two men who’ve dedicated themselves to helping her.

Because there are still six others like her in the City of Angels, unaware of the potential for destruction hidden in their veins.

Marcus Blayne is just a typical, easy-going college boy, concerned with having a good time and flirting with pretty girls. But the lust demon he carries inside of him threatens the life of any girl willing to share his bed. Hayley will have to guard her heart against his charms, or risk succumbing to a fatal attraction that could damn them both.

Darkest Legacy
July 11, 2013
Everyone has secrets they'd prefer stayed buried. But information wants to be free... and so does Tamara Kingsley's ex-lover, incarcerated on the maximum-security prison planet, Alpha.

Tamara has done things she's not proud of, but that was years ago. Now the headmistress of the Silvermist School of Magic for Girls, she has an honest life, one that makes her happy. For the last twenty years she's fought like hell to keep it that way, and she thought she'd succeeded.

She's about to find out just how wrong she was to think her past was dead and gone.

~ My Review of Darkest Legacy ~

Darkest Shadow
Publication Date: December 7th 2013
The missing story…

A would-be dictator has gone to prison. The dimension is safe from a tyrant’s control. But not everything is as perfect as it appears on paper.

Tamara Kingsley is supposedly a hero. But she’s about to discover that her good deed doesn’t actually mean much when it comes to rebuilding a life for herself. No matter how hard she tries to escape it, the stigma of her past is always lurking, holding her back from fully embracing a new life.

And even in Alpha, Valentine hasn’t given up. He’ll spend the next twenty years planning and scheming, waiting for the opportunity to rejoin the world and have his vengeance. On the top of his hit list? Tamara, of course.

Darkest Legacy & Darkest Shadow were merged into one on May 13, 2014.
(first published July 11th 2013)
A spellbinding tale of doomed love and unforgivable betrayal

Part 1: Tamara Kingsley has a secret so big it threatens to destroy her stable, perfect life as headmistress of the Silvermist School of Magic for Girls. When she was barely out of high school, she fell in love with her best friend, helped him set into motion a plan to change the world—and then sent him to the hellish prison planet, Alpha. Now, twenty years later, he’s escaped. And Tamara knows her time is about to run out.

Part 2—the missing story: Tamara thought she would be free when Valentine went to prison. She’s supposedly a hero, so why does she feel like the scum of the earth? Her climb out of the hole she dug herself is a long and arduous one, with Valentine haunting her at every turn. As for the man himself? He’ll spend the next twenty years planning and scheming, waiting for the opportunity to take his vengeance from the woman who betrayed him.

Previously published as two separate novellas, this volume also includes a few short stories about some of the other people affected by Tamara and Valentine’s decisions.

Allyson Gottlieb was born in California, but can't wait to go away to college and trade sunshine, bikinis, and fruit smoothies for autumn leaves, winter coats, and hot cocoa. When she's not busy working on her next bestseller, she can be found devouring books, obsessing over far too many TV shows, baking, spending time with her family and friends... and occasionally doing some homework. She has been writing since second grade and has no plans to stop until she runs out of stories to tell - so basically never.
