A Bundle of Fantastic Fantasy Authors

By now, you've probably heard of "bundling" where groupings of books by different authors are sold together for one amazing price. Often, bundles are organized by a theme or genre, and they usually feature one or two very well known authors alongside some lesser known or indie authors.

Well, today, I'd like to present to you the incredibly awesome Legends and Dreams Book Bundle, featuring eight amazing books, all by fantastic female fantasy authors (and one token dude who can write too).

Legends Bundle

One great feature of this bundle is that YOU, the buyer, get to CHOOSE WHAT PRICE YOU'LL PAY for it, with an extremely low $3 minimum. For that amount, you get five books (a real steal) but at a second tier of $13, you'll unlock THREE MORE and get all eight books. The full bundle of eight includes a book by best-selling author team, Rebecca Moesta and Kevin J. Anderson, as well as the newly redesigned cover of GHOST HAND by Ripley Patton, the first book of the acclaimed YA paranormal thriller series, The PSS Chronicles.

If that isn't enough incentive, another great aspect of this Bundle is that 10% of the profits goes to Stories for Students, a non-profit providing books for K-12 classrooms.

So, what are you waiting for? Go grab this bundle now, but don't delay as this OFFER ENDS MARCH 3rd.

Release Day: Poker Face by Melissa Pearl












Poker Face by Melissa Pearl
RELEASE DAY BLITZ
February 27, 2015

When Caitlyn Davis agreed to work with the FBI, she never imagined it

would lead to her own kidnapping. But her special ability to read people's

emotions and decipher the truth has attracted the unwanted attention of

Santiago Gomez, a rich casino owner who intends to use Caity’s talent

to further his own business.

Eric Shore knew Caity didn't want to break up with him; her scribbled

note left on his bed gave him a snippet of the truth she'd been hiding.

Still reeling from his brush with death and the loss of his beloved

grandfather, Eric throws himself into searching for his girl.

With help from his reemerged father and a rogue FBI agent, Eric follows

a tenuous lead to Las Vegas, not caring that his rescue attempt could

bring him face-to-face with the same man who killed his grandfather and

wants him dead as well.

While Caity fights to survive the horrors of her slavery, Eric is thrust into

a dangerous world that could cost him his life, along with Caity's.

Cover Reveal: The Heart by Rachel Higginson

 








 
The Heart will be released on March 26th!
Ivy Pierce has been to Hades and back trying to escape Nix and his evil plans to use her. After a failed attempt to save her loved ones, she was forced to leave her friends, her sister and the boy she had fallen in love with, Ryder Sutton. And yet Olympus isn’t finished with her yet. As Nix plots to overthrow the legendary mountain, Ivy is pulled back into the twisted, manipulative world of the Greek pantheon. Thrust into the middle of an ancient feud, Ivy will learn quickly that Nix is not the only threat to her freedom and not the only god interested in using her unique skillset to resurrect the Age of Olympus. In a deadly game between two powerful factions of Greek gods, Ivy will have to battle both fate and the Fates in order to secure her future once and for all. She will discover new powers, fight for her friends’ lives and convince the only boy she has ever loved that he can trust her again. In the end, she’ll learn the hardest lesson of all. This isn’t a fable or a Greek myth, her life is a love story.    









Haven't read this Amazon Best Selling Series Yet?
Lila Felix, Author of Burden and The Love & Skate Series -- This is a magnificent ride on the mythological side--but with an exciting contemporary flare. Rachel nailed it with The Siren Series.
Mandy from I Read Indie book blog -- It is a book that keeps your interest and eager to find its secrets. Secrets that are well worth the wait. I am absolutely anticipating book 2.
A life not her own—A future already decided.
Every facet of Ivy Pierce’s life is meticulously planned out and plotted. Cynical and jaded by sixteen, Ivy’s only hope is to escape the legacy she was born into. She has a plan, a carefully thought out, feasible plan. She just has to play by the rules until everything falls into place. Unfortunately as predictable as her life can be, she never sees Ryder Sutton coming. He tumbles into her life unimpressed and untouched by her and the life she lives. He’s an enigma to her. A gorgeous, frustrating, sincere mystery and a complete phenomenon in the ugly world she lives in. What blooms between them is a fiercely intense attraction that cannot be ignored. Even though they would both be better off without each other—Even if both their lives depend on staying apart.

Review: What Jennifer Saw by Hal Schweig

18841736
Jim Harris, a wealthy businessman and philanthropist, and his wife, Mary Beth, along with their four beautiful children, are beloved as the "Jack and Jackie" of Monroeville, Missouri, a small town which considers itself "The Camelot of the Midwest." The murder of Jim Harris in time reveals the moral decay festering beneath this family's golden surface. Following the murder of her husband, Mary Beth Harris has metamorphosed suspiciously from a mousy hausfrau doting on her family to a newly energized vamp hurrying to a secret rendezvous with a mysterious lover. Her 24-year-old son later discovers a letter from her paramour, written shortly before his father's murder, and begins to agonize over the unthinkable. Self-absorbed, Mary Beth fails to recognize the desperate plight of her 15-year-old daughter, the ethereal Jennifer, who witnessed her father's murder, but is suffering post traumatic stress syndrome and cannot recall it. A brilliant but maverick psychiatrist, Dr. Timothy Adler, wrestling demons of his own, is brought in to treat her and discovers she is also in the grip of Multiple Personality Disorder. He gambles everything on one high-risk roll of the dice to decipher her psyche, which harbors a grotesque melange of angry "personas," one of whom holds the key to the identity of the killer and also possesses shocking knowledge about the murder victim as well. Dr. Adler knows that his battle against the cunning and malevolent alter egos who wish to possess Jennifer's soul must be successful, or else she may rapidly descend into madness and even death.

When Danny Blue of the Never Knights inherited his playboy billionaire father's businesses and legacy, he didn't realized his father's pet project was the Blue Room, the most elite and secret club in the highest circle. He was happy to let his half-brother Terrence Blue run the club, but with Terrence's womanizing ways and carefree attitude when it came to everything, he wasn't sure if that was a good idea.
Terrence Blue wasn't sure that was a good idea as well because it would cramp his style as a former patron of the club, but when he spotted virginal Staci Atussi starting at The Blue Room, he had a change of heart. Not only was Staci Atussi a knockout without knowing it, but she was the challenge he had been craving. For Staci Atussi, working at The Blue Room was her solution to a desperate situation, but as she became integrated into the world of The Blue Room and the mysteries surrounding its patrons and the sexy Blues, she wondered if she had traded in her desperation for something far more sinister. The Blue Room is a New Adult Contemporary Suspense Series intending for readers age 18 and up.

Blog Tour: Nights in Venice by Tara Crescent






Nights in Venice by Tara Crescent
BLOG TOUR
February 23-27, 2015

Two thieves. One painting. One very dangerous game.

For seven years, Lucia Petrucci has stolen a painting every year to keep the memory of her parents alive. But now she has made a mistake. She has crossed the most dangerous man in Venice. Antonio Moretti, Head of the Thieves Guild.

She has stolen from Antonio, and he wants retribution. Can Lucia pay his price?




He is Enzo Peron. By day, he is a Chief Inspector of Police in Venice. By night, a Dominant at Casanova, Venice’s most exclusive BDSM club.

She is Alice Blackwell, an American heiress who has fled to Venice. She comes to Club Casanova, hoping to explore the submissive desires she has held in check for many years.

He dominates her. She submits to him.

But Alice has a past, and it is determined to reclaim her.




Every single man who looks at me wants me. To them, I am merely a sexy body, there to play a leading role in their wet dreams. I am never anything more.

Except Liam. Liam Callahan wants only friendship from me, and I should be delighted. I certainly don’t want anything else from him. I don’t want to be bent over his lap and spanked. I don’t want to be tied up and flogged, and I definitely don’t want him to make love to me.

Do I?

~*~ABOUT TARA CRESCENT~*~
Hello, I’m Tara Cresent. I’ve always fantasized about being a mysterious spy, leading a secret double-life, and now, I find that that’s come true!

Sort of.

By day, I’m a mild-mannered corporate drone in Toronto, but by night, I’m limited only by my imagination; I sit, and I type, and I am a daring writer of BDSM, erotica and romance.

In my spare time, I write of course. I also read, garden, travel, cook, and almost never clean. I just started watching Walking Dead on Netflix (zombie erotica, anyone?), and I’m impatiently awaiting the next episode of Doctor Who. (I would kill for a TARDIS.)

I’ve scribbled bits and pieces all my life, chiefly inspired by what I’m reading, which tends to be mainly science-fiction and fantasy, with a healthy sprinkling of romance and erotica thrown in.

I’m a huge believer in happily-ever-after, but tempered by real life, where happily-ever-after is possible, but takes work.  My favorite kind of romance stories are ones that are somewhat believable; I like strong men and women who know what they want out of life, and are driven to get it.


I love reader email; I can be reached at taracrescent@gmail.com.

Happy reading and writing!
