Blood Tree ~ Review

Blood Tree by Scarlett Dawn
Publication Date: August 14, 2015

Where there is dark, there is light. 
The two halves make a whole… 
Or do they constantly battle for dominance? 

Kenna Julius is your average teenage girl. She has a bossy mom, a new boyfriend in school, and she never dreams of enchanted lands or fairytale castles. 

She lives in the real world. 

Or so she thought. 

One fender bender sends Kenna traipsing through the woods and following her mom’s crazy directions. But when she falls into another realm where men play flutes under the full moon and magical powers crackle the air, her perception of fantasy becomes her reality. The hot guy she meets doesn’t help matters either when he claims she’s his. 

Or does Kenna actually belong to another? 
Someone much more…dark? 

*This is a 20,000 word novella*

Scarlett Dawn has done it again! With her usual flare she transports us to a world full of awesome yet completely different from all of her others. A young Kenna is unexpectedly thrown into her fairy truth & we jump forward a bit to an older Kenna who is now very comfortable in this alternate world of light vs. dark fairies. While the characters are well developed I personally would have enjoyed a little less jumping & more background, but I don't think the story was lacking from it. As always I was sucked into this tale & begging for more! Looking forward to Part 2!!

*The individual installments are no longer in publication. Please see the boxset, Blood Tree: Silver Edition, which includes a bonus story,  here*

His Lullaby Baby ~ Cover Reveal

Today we are revealing the cover for HIS LULLABY BABY by Airicka Phoenix. This novel is the 5th book in The Baby Saga and it will be released on September 28th.

His Lullaby Baby by Airicka Phoenix
Publication date: September 28, 2015

Nothing ever happens by accident. Ex-combat search and rescue officer Toby McClain had seen all aspects of humanity in his ten years of service until friendly fire took him out of action. But bitterness was something Toby could never do. He was alive. He had his family and, after being ambushed by a door, he had his eyes on the sexy new innkeeper. Adelaide Nixon had felt the burn of love once already. It was a mistake that cost her six years of her life. It was a punishment she never wanted to feel again, especially when there were two little people who depended on her to keep them safe. The last thing she wanted or needed was the attention of a guy whose family kept the gossip mills turning. But no secret ever stays hidden in a place like Willow Creek. Even as Toby breaks through Addy’s walls, a new threat comes to town, leaving her no choice but to put more than her heart in Toby’s hands and trust him not to destroy her.

Steam Blog Tour & Review

Steam ~ Legends Saga # 3
by Stacey Rourke
Publication Date: September 10, 2015
Time passes, sins forgotten.

The bodies of the victims long since rotten.

Trapped within the essence of the Headless Horseman by the guilt of slaughtering her best friend, Ireland Crane follows the father of science fiction, HG Wells, in search of freedom from the curse that binds her. Instead, she discovers even he has a hidden agenda. A dark, relentless passion to be reunited with the woman he loves has driven him to manipulate time and a murderous Horseman.

Yet heed my warning, as the Raven flies,

The Hessian will come … and you will die.
All that prevents Ireland from abandoning Wells’ twisted pursuit, or introducing him to her sword, are the undead witches haunting her. Begging for freedom from a vile succubus, the ghoulish coven leads Ireland and her crew on a journey through Salem’s sordid past. There, they learn there is more to Nathaniel Hawthorne’s history than a scarlet letter, and the secret they’ve uncovered seeks to destroy them all. 
Genre: New Adult, Paranormal, Thriller, Suspense
Formats: E-book and Paperback Publisher: Anchor Group Publishing

- Gigi Siguenza, Indie Love Book Club

- Sheila M, Amazon Reviewer

Kelley Grealis 
has loved all things vampire since she was a kid. It was that fascination, combined with the need to know how the first vampire was created, that compelled her to write the type of vampire novel she had always wanted to read. Kelley was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio and continues to live in the area with her husband and their two fur babies. She likes her cars fast and motorcycles loud and is a craft beer snob. When she’s not writing, she’s working at her day job, cruising in her convertible or enjoying a beer at her favorite local brewery.
