New Synopsis

For fans of dark urban fantasy comes a novel that questions why forbidden fruit is always the most tempting…

A vampire-themed masquerade party isn’t really her scene, but Nora is sick of frat parties and bars. When she meets Alec, the appeal suddenly becomes clear. It’s obvious that they’ve been struck by the same intense mutual attraction, but Alec keeps his distance. Intrigued despite herself, Nora pushes a little deeper — and discovers Alec’s unimaginable secret…

Nora is not afraid of following Alec into the darkness, but the choice is soon taken from her. Someone is hunting her — someone tied to the secret and desperate to see it play out. But when Nora finally meets her aggressor, she finds herself hopelessly drawn to him. She needs to make a choice between the two men, but can she save them both, knowing one is destined to die?

Praise for Bitter Fruits:
“This book is one of the best paranormals I’ve read, and I’ve read a lot. Five stars hands down! I am proud to pass it on to all of you. Buy this book, devour it and enjoy. ”

New excerpt

He sits in front of me and brings me to his chest. Our flesh is hot and sticky where it touches and I can’t stop the ache between my legs. His breathing is ragged and he tightens his grip on the back of my head as he tries to slow it. I am hurt or angry or frustrated, but I don’t know which. He runs his hands along my entire body and I push against him, needing him and not knowing how to accept his denial.

I want you, Nora. I have wanted you since I saw you. You are gorgeous. However, there are secrets that… Please understand, the steps that you want to take will reveal things. This cannot end well for either of us. I don’t want to make you suffer, but I am fated to suffer. Don’t make me bring you with me into the darkness. I can’t bear to lose you.’

I sense the pain that grips him. The darkness that he speaks of sounds frightening, but I don’t feel fear when I face him and meet his eyes. ‘I will follow you anywhere. Dark or light. Stop trying to make my choices for me.’

Our lips meet again, but it is with doubt. Neither of us knows what will happen if we are to move forward, but I want to have a chance to find out.

My body is still crying out for him but now my mind is calm. I want him, but I want him when he knows that I’m ready for whatever that means. His hands touch me and his caresses are soft. We both slow our breathing and I try to let my will match his. When he pulls away, he gathers the picnic and looks at me with longing and a hunger I do not recognize. It’s not sexual, but desperate. Almost as a dying man looks in the last moments of his life.

In three days,’ he says, ‘I will meet you again at the church where we first met. In the meantime, I want you to look something up — and if you do not appear at the church, I’ll know that what you found changed everything.’

Okay,’ I say warily. I’ll do anything he asks, but his fear scares me. What kind of secrets can he possibly hold? Little right now could stop me from going to him in three days.

Find the name Charles Samuels. He was an Oxford student in the 1960s. And then we shall see how much of the darkness you are willing to face.’

I’ll look him up, but Alec, I’m going to be at the church in three days,’ I say.

For your sake, Nora, I hope that you’re not.’

New author bio

Sarah Daltry writes about the regular people who populate our lives. She’s written works in various genres – romance, erotica, fantasy, horror. Genre isn’t as important as telling a story about people and how their lives unfold. Sarah tends to focus on YA/NA characters but she’s been known to shake it up. Most of her stories are about relationships – romantic, familial, friendly – because love and empathy are the foundation of life. It doesn’t matter if the story is set in contemporary NY, historical Britain, or a fantasy world in the future – human beings are most interesting in the ways they interact with others. This is the principle behind all of Sarah’s stories.

Sarah has spent most of her life in school, from her BA and MA in English and writing to teaching both at the high school and college level. She also loves studying art history and really anything because learning is fun.

When Sarah isn’t writing, she tends to waste a lot of time checking Facebook for pictures of cats, shooting virtual zombies, and simply staring out the window.

Book Review – Forgotten by Sarah J. Pepper

25 Nov

Forgotten

Title: Forgotten

Series: The Fate Trilogy, book 1

Author: Sarah J. Pepper

Publication Date: October 5, 2012

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Paranormal Romance

Cover: Wilcoxon Photography (Photographer), Platinum Imagination (Photographer)

Book descriptionBG

His perseverance unnerved me, scrutinizing my every move like a twisted guardian angel. Jace waited patiently for me to join him. Like he knew my defiance would crumble under his intense gaze, which was exactly why I avoided him…until twilight. He hijacked my dreams and proved to be a different kind of nightmare – unhinged, rebellious, and dangerously mouth-watering.
“Escape from reality, Gwyneth. Sometimes life can be too painful to live in, even for immortals,” Jace whispered in my dream. His heat, fervor, and unrelenting confidence resonated around me when he closed the gap between us. His lips hovered above mine, waiting for me to give into him.
***
Gwyneth’s chronicle began long before she witnessed her family being brutally murdered and lost her sight. Living as an orphan, her world is anything but black and white. She sees her vivid future that promises suffering and death. Cursed with these visions, Gwyneth pretends to be like everyone else, until a dangerously charismatic, young man walks into her life. From the moment Jace lays eyes on her, he refuses to believe Gwyneth is normal. He knows information about her past that only a psychopathic stalker could dig up. He reveals her dirty secrets. Unbeknownst details of Gwyneth’s former life unfurl.
Unsure of what to believe, Gwyneth searches for answers that lead to her inconceivable fate. However, the ancient truth she uncovers is more dangerous than any high school romance she’d bargained for. Gwyneth is drug into an inevitable battle brewing between immortal Gods and ageless Hunters – both of which have sworn to swear to kill her if deemed necessary.

my reviewBW
StarStarStarStar

I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest, spoiler free opinion.

I will start off my saying that I LOVE the paranormal genre. And Forgotten was so unique.

I will start off with Gwyneth. When she was a child she witnessed her family being murdered and due to the trauma she was diagnosed to be legally blind, though she can see in different shades of gray. Pepper did a really good job with describing the everyday life of someone with such a difficult condition. Gwyneth lives with a loving foster family and tries to have as normal a life that she can. But normal is underrated. She believes herself to be clairvoyant, having dreams that she thinks are scenes of her future. But then her life changes when Jace forces himself into her life. Though she is drawn to him for reasons she does not know or understand she tries to stay away from him.

Jace is a mysterious boy. And I imagine him to be beyond gorgeous!!! At first I found that he talked in riddles as he was trying to get Gwyneth to trust him and to divulge too much information would put her in danger. But he has to heal her and help her remember the life she has forgotten, the love she has forgotten. And the journey getting there was captivating.

I am not going to lie there were some parts that kept me confused however, in the end everything came together.

Forgotten has a lot of twist between the characters. Will the visions from her past affect the present? And of course the incorporation of the fates, I loved Pepper’s vision of these characters. I prefer to envision them as being beautiful than how common Greek mythology describes them to be ugly.

This book is packed with love, hate, vengeance, action and best of all hope! I would recommend this to any paranormal romance fan. I myself can’t wait to read the rest in the series.

About the authorBG

Image of Sarah J Pepper

I specialize in dark, paranormal romance – think “happy ever after” but with a twisted, dark chocolate center. Real-life romance isn’t only filled with hugs, kisses, unicorns, and rainbows. True-love can be more thoroughly described in times of darkness and tribulation. It’s in those harsh moments where you see what a person is truly capable of – both the good and bad. Sometimes prince-charming isn’t always on time, and the glass slipper is a little snug. However, it doesn’t mean Charming is not Mr. Right, and who says every shoe is the perfect fit?

“Warning: Addictive passion erupts from her mouthwatering descriptions” – recent review.

Sarah J. Pepper lives in South Dakota with her real-life prince charming. At a young age, she fell for paranormal books and now incorporates that genre with romance that thrives in the hearts of us all. When she’s not storytelling, she’s most likely biking, hoarding chocolate, or taking a bubble bath. Get a glimpse inside her head at www.peppersreadingcorner.com

“Forbidden Beloved” – Not everyone falls for the murderous prince charming with killer good looks, but Roxy hasn’t ever been very lucky.

“Devil’s Lullaby” -Cat craved his addictive kiss as much as she ached for his death.

Cover Reveal – Infinity Unleashed by Sedona Venez

8 Nov


Infinity Unleashed by Sedona Venez - ebooksm

Title: Infinity Unleashed by Sedona Venez
(Valkyries: Soaring Raven #2)
Publication date: December 10th 2013
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal Romance
Book descriptionGW

***This is a new adult paranormal novel and contains sexual content and graphic language. It is not intended for young adult readers.***

Wild rage coursed through my veins.

Mason’s diabolical plan had actually worked. In a matter of minutes he had kidnapped me, stripping me of everything…money, family and freedom. It was humbling, depressing, and damn infuriating but I refused to go down without a fight. I refused to be defeated.

Boulder would find me. I didn’t know how, but I felt it deep in my soul. Boulder—the one man that made my body quake with just one look. It was madness. There was so much I didn’t know about him. For that matter, there was so much that he didn’t know about me…the evil darkness lurking inside me, waiting to be unleashed.

Could he accept me without judging?

That’s where most men failed. Accepting the real me…but after years of hardening my heart, and sealing it behind a steel cage, I was ready to give myself to him freely, knowing that he planned to take everything I offered with both hands, until all I thought of…and wanted…was him.

Book Review – Atancia by Wren Figueiro

2 Nov

Atancia

Book descriptionBG

Publication Date: August 6, 2013
 
After watching a young boy die, college freshman Atancia Clark begins to have panic attacks. Her heart flutters, her breath catches and she can’t control her emotions the way she always has. She wants to be strong, but lately she just hasn’t been living up to her own expectations. When she meets Ben Althaus, her breath starts catching for entirely different reasons. He helps Atancia discover the cause for her odd emotional reactions and the history she thought was lost when her mother left her. Atancia has power beyond that of an average girl, and Ben is by no means ordinary. He wants to help her hone her talents, but her focus is threatened by life-altering events. Add Ben’s entrancing brother, Matthew, to the mix, and Atancia’s lack of clarity could lead her down a destructive path.

Atancia is a paranormal romance novel for young adults. It is the first book of The Durand Duology.

StarStarStarStar
~~~~~

Atancia was a unique story and I really enjoyed it. We are introduced to the world of the Durand, beings who have been cohabitating with humans but who have special powers. Atancia (Atty) Clark is a Durand though she knows it not. She doesn’t know anything about her family history as her mother left her when she was just a child for her own protection. What does she need to be protected from? Well you’ll just have to read it to get the full details! 😉

Atty is shy private girl but her life will change drastically when Ben walks into her life.  Finding out about her mother and who she really is Atty’s main goal but with her adopted grandmother, Nana falling ill, she runs away and tries to put it all behind her. Atty’s has many questions but she never really gets answers. The only person she can talk freely to is Matt, Ben’s younger brother. However, she feel’s guilty for trusting in him and not the man she loves.

For a debut novel I must give major props to Wren Figueiro. Atancia is filled with so many emotions that keep you turning the page. It has mystery, grief, sorrow, love, many twists and most of all, the unknown. In my opinion Atancia is a story of self discovery, a story of how someone learns to trust their instincts. It’s a hard road to take especially if with all your heart you want to believe the people who claim to care about you.

“Sometimes you have to kind of die inside in order to rise from your own ashes and believe in yourself and love yourself to become a new person.” ― Gerard Way

This looks like a promising series and I am excited to find out what happens next!

About the authorBG

 

As a child, I was often kept up at night by an overactive imagination. When I got to college, I decided to study writing so I could put that imagination to better use. I am an avid reader and rarely let a week go by without finishing at least two books. I love the way that books allow passage into other people’s thoughts and let me see how they view the world. Though I have been writing stories as long as I can remember, Atancia is my first novel.
