Yet not even Theron can slip into town unnoticed, and the Council of Thirteen sends Ramah to deal with the two renegades once and for all. But unknown to the Council, a much older enemy is also in Londinium, and this time even the great Ramah might not be safe.

Set against the backdrop of the Iceni uprising in Roman-era Britannia, 61 A.D. continues the story of Taras, Theron, and Ramah, as they fight their way through history.

The Book of Lost Souls by Michelle Muto
When teen witch Ivy MacTavish changes a lizard into her date for a Halloween dance, everything turns to chaos. And when no one is powerful enough to transform him back except Ivy, it sparks the rumor: Like father, like daughter. Worse, someone has used an evil spell book to bring back two of history's most nefarious killers.

Ivy's got a simple plan to set things right: find the real dark spell caster, steal the book, and reverse the spell. No problem! But first, she’ll have to deal with something more dangerous than murderous spirits: the school’s hotter-than-brimstone demon bad boy, Nick Marcelli. Demons are about as hard to handle as black magic, and Ivy soon discovers it’s going to take more than a lot of luck and a little charm if she wants to clear her status as a dark witch, get a warm-blooded boyfriend, and have her former date back to eating meal worms before the week’s end

Broken Promises - A Mary O'Reilly Paranormal Mystery (Book 8)

Broken Promises - A Mary O'Reilly Paranormal Mystery (Book 8)

5.0 out of 5 stars The Eighth is Great!, August 25, 2012

You know how they say the longer the series the worse the books get? Well, I truly believe that Terri Reid has replaced that saying with the more books she adds to the series the BETTER they get! Oh my goodness! I was hooked from the first word until the very last and then I cried because I knew that the story wasn't done and that I was going to have to wait for the next book! I bought Broken Promises at 8 am and by the time 8 pm rolled around I was in tears! I loved it and can't wait for the next one!

Broken Promises finds Mary and Bradly embroiled in a new series of difficulties. Not only are they trying to find Bradly's lost daughter, Mary's two wonderful friends Rosie and Stanley both come to find that they have ghosts haunting them a week before their wedding. To top that all off they are having to testify against the man that ultimately killed Bradly's wife and kidnapped Mary. Unbeknownst to Bradly and Mary, Bradly's daughter, Clarissa, and her adopted mother are having to deal with their own demons.

Will everyone find their happy ending or will Stanley leave Rosie at the alter? Will Rosie be able to face her own personal demon? Will Clarissa be able to protect her mother from being murdered for the few dollars she has to her name or will they be able to make it out of Chicago before the bad man comes and finds them?

If you love a good story and enjoy being drawn in and wrapped up in the characters then this is the series for you. Even as the eighth book in the series you can still pick up Broken Promises on it's own and fall in love with the characters and relate to the story! I know you will and once you fall in love you will have to go back to the beginning and read them all!

You won't be able to resist!

S.J. Wright Book Bash

We're having a book bash!!! Join us as we celebrate S.J. Wright's Undead Brown County series August 24th from 12-4 pst, hope you can come!!Here is the event page: These are the amazing books we're celebrating:
He moved. It was a flash in the moonlight, a blur of motion like I'd never witnessed before. No human had the capacity to move like that. When I found myself face-to-face with him there in the meadow, I knew without a doubt that the journal was authentic. I knew that my grandfather hadn't been crazy at all. Because a foot away from me stood a vampire. What do you do when you find out the people you trust have been hiding a terrible secret? When Sarah Wood's father passes away and hands over to her the responsibility of running the family's inn, she finds put things are far more complicated than she first imagined. She's not just responsible for running the inn. She's become the Vampire's Warden.
Sarah Wood, after witnessing a battle between several powerful vampires on her land, is left stunned and feeling immensely guilty for having given permission for her friend, Alex, to be turned into a vampire rather than allowing him to die from his injuries. And though she tried hard to keep her sister, Katie from knowing about the whole vampire situation at their family’s Inn in the wooded hills of southern Indiana, Katie became the victim of a kidnapping herself. Sarah is left to face the return of her mother, who had abandoned the girls when they were children. She’ll need every ounce of her bad attitude and quick temper to deal with the new surprises coming her way, including an illness that could very well leave the entire responsibility of the Inn and the vampires to fall onto the shoulders of her younger sister.
In the third book of the Undead in Brown County series, Sarah Wood has to deal with the changes in her sister, Katie. She also gets to know someone new in her life who could end up being her salvation. And then there's Michael. He's desperate to keep Sarah safe from his enemies. How far will he go in order to protect her?
We will be giving away ebook and paperback copies of each of the books along with some amazing t shirts!

Coffin Girls (Elegantly Undead: Book 1 of the Coffin Girls Witch Vampire Series)

Coffin Girls (Elegantly Undead: Book 1 of the Coffin Girls Witch Vampire Series) 

5.0 out of 5 stars Vampires, Witches, Fairies, Werewolves and Voodoo, August 21, 2012 

Do you like books about vampires, witches, fairies, werewolves or any other paranormal entity? Do you like a good love story with lots of tension? Do you like new versions and ideas about what paranormal can do, be, or look like? 

Then this is the book for you. Coffin Girls is a book about five vampires that are also part something else. They have carved a good living out for themselves and their "Cajun Voodoo Momma" in New Orleans. As wedding planners they are able to help other woman plan, prepare, and enjoy their own Cinderella Wedding Days. 

Trying to fly under the Vampire Council's radar they are forced into a situation in which they have to "take in" some Witches because the leaders are trying to get the Vampires and Witches to form friendships that might mutually benefit both. As the creator of the Coffin Girls Anais is the leader of their little group and so she plays hostess. The leader of the Witches, Collin, feels an instant connection to her and it is something he has never experienced. When Anais passes out while showing the witches around New Orleans she is forced to trust the Witches with secrets she never thought she would have to share. Collin quickly decides that they can help each other and so the two groups form a front that is able to learn to love, laugh, and please the Goddess by helping those in need.

I refuse to be a spoiler in my reviews and so I must stop here and tell you this: This is an awesome book and so very very worth the price and time that it takes you to read it! I fell in love with the characters, the plot, and love that Aneesa puts into her books.

Please take the time and money to escape into a new world where everything is a little brighter, a little more red, and a lot bigger than we could have ever imagined! From the beginning of the book to the end I was hooked. I love being able to read a book and realize that I am mad when I am interrupted or when I have to sleep because all I want to do is keep reading!

This is one of those books that I had a book hangover with. I cried when it was over and trust me I will be harassing Aneesa until she gives us the sequel. I can't wait to find out what the Goddess has in store for the new friends!

In a word this book is: WONDERFUL! Try it! I know you will love it the way I did!
