Evo ~ Cover Reveal

Evo ~ Divine Hunter World ~ Book #2.5
by L.J. Sealey
Release Date: July 2015 (to be confirmed)
The hunter just became the hunted. . . 

Evan O'Reilly was used to fighting demons. A bounty hunter for the underworld, he was always precise. Efficient. Ruthless. But that was before he had to battle with his own.

Being a powerful deity had its advantages, and Alethia, goddess of wind and shadows, was thankful she could watch over her friend completely undetected. That was, until his carelessness began to garner the wrong kind of attention, leaving her no choice but to step in.

Now, Evo is being hunted by his own kind, closely followed by a revenge hungry demon. He is on the run, and Alethia is running with him. While passion ignites, and tension threatens to tear them apart, they discover that there is something far more sinister after Evo's soul. As Alethia fights for him, she is forced to face an agonizing truth: to save him, she may have to lose him forever.

A story about love and sacrifice, Evo is the first book in the Divine Hunter World series of books that focus on the much loved characters from the Divine Hunter series.

The Infinite Expanse Blog Tour

The Infinite Expanse by B.C. Powell 
The Journals of Krymzyn #2 
Publication date: March 31, 2015
Evil lurks in the desolate Barrens of Krymzyn. For millions of Eras, predators with insatiable cravings have prowled the wasteland. When a traitor of the Delta enters their realm, the solitary beasts may finally have a leader to unite them.

As a new order emerges in the Barrens, Chase and Sash begin their lives together. While Chase fights to prove he belongs in Krymzyn, the power inside Sash flourishes in ways no one could have imagined. But a vengeance from the wasteland is soon unleashed upon them.

After Chase is trapped deep in the Barrens, his only escape is into the Infinite Expanse. Unaware of the deathly perils that take shape there, he may be lost forever. For Sash to return him from the endless wilderness, she’ll have to harness a mystical energy not seen since the beginning of time.

Genres: Fantasy, New Adult, Science Fiction

An enormous scorpion-like creature creeps over the ledge of the Canyon. Carmine colored with eight legs, the Schorachnia is at least twenty feet long from its head to the end of its body. Two long, flexible tails swing wildly from its rear, both with pear-shaped orange stingers growing from the ends.

In the front of the creature’s body, two giant pinchers at the end of crab-like arms nimbly pluck at the flowers. Fiery round eyes in a pointy triangular face intently focus on the task. Without seeming to notice us, the creature holds its pinchers over its mouth and drips liquid onto its tongue.

“Nectar seeps from the flowers,” Sash says. “They take it without ever damaging the vines. That one is called Glutano.”

“How do you know which one is which?”

“By the color of their stingers,” she replies. “The same seven colors as in the hair of the Serquatine.”

“Is it a man or a woman?” I ask.

“A male. All the Schorachnia are male, just as the Serquatine are all female.”

“Why is he ignoring us?”

“He’s not,” she answers. “He’s testing your patience.”

As though he heard me, the creature’s face suddenly juts out from his body, connected by a long scraggly neck. When he swings his head towards us, red and orange flickers inside his eyes like flames dancing over a fire. Sash holds a hand out, showing the creature the rainbow over her palm, so I do the same.

The Schorachnia turns away from us and uses his claws to pinch more beads of nectar from the flowers. After pouring the fluid into his mouth, he retracts his head into his body. I jump backwards when he suddenly spins and charges at us. 

Sash grabs me by the arm. “Never show fear in front of the Guardians,” she says calmly. “Only respect.”

The creature scurries across the crumbly red dirt and slides to a stop a few feet in front of me. While his eyes study Sash, both of his tails flail in the air behind him.

“Greetings, Glutano,” Sash says, bowing. “The Traveler Chase is here to venture into the Infinite Expanse.”

The Schorachnia doesn’t answer, but I flinch again when his head springs out and stops right in front of my face. His hypnotic eyes capture mine, absorbing my mind in their flames.

“This being is not of this world,” Glutano says in a dry and crusty voice, as though his throat is full of dirt.

Sash squeezes my arm and turns her face to me. When I glance into her eyes, I know the look she’s giving me. She’s telling me to speak for myself. 

I refocus on the Guardian. “I wasn’t born in this world,” I say, “but it’s the world I belong to now.”

The Journals of Krymzyn #1 
Publication Date: October 4, 2014
Chase was twelve the first time he arrived in a strange land where dark, ominous clouds never move, ancient trees violently spring to life during Darkness, and people seem to live without emotion. Doctors tell him they’re hallucinations, but he knows his visits are real. She’s there—Sash—and she’s more real than anyone he’s ever known.

His visits stop but, as years pass, the memories haunt Chase. Without warning, the young man suddenly finds himself again in a world called Krymzyn. Arriving during Darkness, he’s rescued from death by the extraordinary, beautiful, but terrifying young woman he first met when he was twelve.

When Chase is thrust into the war of balance against vile creatures who threaten all who live there, Sash helps him understand his purpose in Krymzyn. A dark secret from the beginning of time reveals he might be able to stay there forever. To prove he belongs in Krymzyn and be with the only woman he can ever love, Chase will have to risk his own life in the ultimate battle. 

This book is a new adult work of fiction intended for mature audiences 17 and older.

Forever Down Under Blitz

Forever Down Under by S.M. Phillips
Down Under Series ~ Book #3
Release Date: April 28, 2015

In the last few months, Jess has been faced with more obstacles than she ever thought possible. Heartbreak, loss and betrayal to name just a few. Will her drama fuelled life finally settle into the happy, care free one that she deserves or is someone hiding and waiting for the perfect opportunity to ruin it all?

 Life for Max hasn't exactly been plain sailing either. Now that he finally has someone in his life that means more to him than anything he has ever known, one thing is for certain, he's not going to let anyone get in the way of his new found happiness, no matter what the cost.

Demons are released, pasts are exposed and their future together is only what they make of it. 

My eyes flutter open and I quickly close them again, trying to stop the assault of the bright sunlight from stinging them.

“Hey.” A slow, lazy smile curves onto my lips at the sound of his voice, and I open my right eye just a little to get a closer look at his perfect face. He definitely doesn’t disappoint. I don’t think a day could ever pass by, where I could ever tire of his perfect features. Both eyes open and firmly lock onto his piercing blues, and his cocky, sure as hell grin falls into place. “I’ve missed you, angel.”

“Yeah?” I ask, while stretching a little. “How about you come and show me just how much?” 

“I’d fucking love to.” He whispers and I feel the bed dip slightly, as he leans his hard, solid, perfect frame over me. Tilting my head slightly, so his lips can rest on mine, I snake my fingers into his hair and pull him down against me, desperate to close the aching gap between us, but he pulls back.

“What’s wrong?” I ask, desperation heavy in my voice. 

“Jessica Townsend, you’ll be the fucking death of me.” I reach up to kiss him again, and this time he doesn’t hold back, instead he holds me tight and pulls me into his arms, right where I belong.

“You know that I’d love nothing more than to stay here with you like this, with nothing coming between us all day.” Max whispers against my neck before slowly drawing back to look at me once again.

“Now that sounds like a plan to me.” I can’t help but smile a big goofy smile at my loveable rogue. I flutter my eyelashes a little, and press my hips against him, hoping that he’ll take the hint and give my body exactly what it craves. Him. 

Instead, Max places a tender kiss on my forehead and his eyes fall back on to mine as he looks down on me, eyebrows raised and his piercing blue eyes sparkle with mischief and welcome promises. Somehow, I know that the mischief and promises aren’t going to be carried out just yet.

“Jen’s here to see you.” Max sighs before continuing. “She said that if I don’t bring you downstairs, then she’ll take a blunt knife and cut off my balls, and you know how much I love my balls, angel.” I can’t help but laugh at the worried expression he now has plastered on his face. How did I get so bloody lucky to have him in my life? 

“This isn’t over, Mr Wild. Remember, you owe me big time for this.” I warn. “Plus, has no one ever told you that you don’t keep a lady waiting?” I point my finger directly at him and press it into his chest for added effect. I swear Jen is going to pay for this. No doubt, she’s already had her morning fumble and then some. Cow.

I let out a loud, defeated sigh and kick back the covers, deliberately displaying my naked body to Max. His face is absolutely priceless. With his eyes wide and his mouth open, I can tell that he’s suddenly regretting his decision. I swat his hand away when he reaches out to touch me. “I wouldn’t want to come between you and your manliness now, would I?”

“Jess.” Max pleads while gripping me tightly around the waist, and pulling my body up flush against his. “Fuck, woman. Give me a minute and I’ll go down and get rid of her.”

“No.” I smile and turn around to face him. “There’s not much point now anyway, the moments passed. Plus, I’m sure watching you suffer will be more than enough payback. At least for now.”

“Come on, you’ve got to be shittin’ me.”

“Oh yes.” I think to myself. I’ve definitely hit a nerve here as he looks utterly wounded, like a kid that lost it’s favourite toy. Maybe next time he’ll think twice about blowing me off just to protect his balls. Surely he should know by now, that the only person he needs to protect his balls from is yours truly. I smile once again at this beautiful man who is coming undone before my very own eyes, and I can’t help the smug feeling of satisfaction that washes over me. Oh boy, the fun I’m going to have making him suffer. 

I pull on my robe, the luxurious silk robe that Max gave to me and wrap it tightly around my body, wanting nothing more than for Max to storm over to me and rip it from my body. Realising that isn’t going to happen, I take one last glance at him, watching him stood frozen on the spot, practically foaming at the mouth. Oh Max. What am I going to do with you?

“This isn’t over, Max.” I promise and pull on the door handle a little too hard in my sexually frustrated state, almost knocking myself out in the process. I’m sure Max just snorted at my almost too unfortunate error, but I decide to hold my head high and seductively walk away from him, making my way to the bathroom so I can at least look presentable for my dear friend.

“This had better be good, Davies.” I warn my best friend as soon as I spot her seated on my sofa, looking extremely comfortable and right at home with her legs tucked underneath her.

“Hey to you, too.” She smiles sweetly and I know that she’s fully aware of what she has just interrupted. “I thought that maybe we could do something today, just you and me? A little bit of quality time. What do you say?”

“Couldn’t you have called or something to ask me that?” I huff and drag myself towards her.

“Sorry, doll. I just wanted to see you. Anyway, you can always play with lover boy later.” Her words have me wishing I was busy playing with him now. I swear if it was anyone else but Jen, I’d be taking my frustration out on them.

“Yeah, yeah. I’m sure you’re really sorry. You’re flushed complexion tells a different kind of story. Bloody take your backside into the kitchen and stick the kettle on or something, I need caffeine.”

“Did I ever tell you how much I love you, princess?” Jen grins at me, before jumping up from the sofa and wrapping me into a tight, warm embrace.

“Don’t push it, Davies.” I warn, but still smile over her shoulder. It’s bloody hard to stay mad at her for too long. 

Not long after Jen has waltzed off into the kitchen, I spot Max’s sexy, lean, muscular frame snaking towards me; now fully clothed and fresh from a shower. He looks and smells devine. How I wish I could have been in that shower with him. Fucking Jen and her bloody spontaneous plans. I feel him next to me and he leans down and presses a soft, delicate kiss against my cheek. I mentally struggle to stay mad at him, and a small smile dances across my lips at his touch.

“I’ve got a few errands to run angel, but I promise I’ll make it up to you later.”

“You can bet you’re arse you will.” I promise and my stomach flutters in anticipation of the delightful things that he’ll be doing to me later and I’m rewarded with his wicked grin.

“You look so fucking beautiful, Jess. I wish I didn’t have to go.”

“Then don’t. I can always get rid of Jen, she’ll understand… Eventually.” I try to plead with him, but I can already tell that he isn’t about to back down anytime soon.

“I would if I could angel, but I’ve got some issues that need clearing up.” His face is serious for a moment, but as if remembering that I’m still watching him, he leans down and places a kiss on my forehead. Something’s bothering him, but I’m not sure what. Soon though, I’ll get to the bottom of it. I always do.

“How long will you be gone for?” I ask, missing him already and realising that I won’t win this round.

“A few hours, tops. Don’t look at me like that with those eyes. A few hours will fly by with the Tasmanian devil in there.” He nods in the direction of the kitchen, just incase I didn’t understand his meaning. All I can do is pout. “Hey, I was wondering if you wanted to stop by and see your mum tomorrow? Or, if you want we could go later?”

I’m hesitant for a moment before I reply, “I’m not sure Max.” My chest feels heavy at the mere mention of my mum and it kills me. I’d love nothing more than to go and see her, even if it was just to make sure that she’s okay and to see if she’s feeling better; but how am I supposed to do that when she won’t take my calls and constantly refuses visitors? My only comfort right now, is knowing that she’s in the best possible place, receiving the best possible care that she could ever need and it’s all thanks to this devilishly handsome man stood beside me. 

Initially I’d refused any kind of offer to help out from him, because the way that I see it, she’s my mum to look after and I should be able to that on my own. I remember clearly in my mind the way he looked at me, held me close and said, “Angel, please. Please allow me to do this one thing for you. I don’t have a mother to look after, Jess. I guess I was never really given a chance, so please let me do this one thing for you.” 

As much as my stubbornness and pride screamed out for me to say no, and as much as I actually wanted to say no, I just couldn’t do it. I found that I couldn’t form the words. The pure, raw sadness that swam in his eyes had me aching for him, aching for his past and the hurt that seems to still haunt him to this day. 

“Okay.” I whispered, unable to say more, but for Max it seemed to be enough as he scooped me up in a tight embrace and smothered me with kisses. I just hope that one day I’ll be able to tell him just how grateful I am, for everything.

“Well, I’ll see you later then, angel.” Max whispers, bringing me back to the here and now. “Jen, make sure you look after my lady. She’s precious cargo, this one.”
