AMAZON / AMAZON UK B&N KOBO

Synopsis
Kate has been through more than her share of tragedies in her life. After suffering the loss of her mother, daughter, and the love of her life, she’s finally found the strength to open herself up to love again. For once, everything is finally as it should be. Kate should’ve known that things were too good to be true; her life doesn’t work that smoothly.

It’s been four years since Michael left Kate, but he’s back now, and determined to win Kate’s heart once again. After discovering that Daniel and Michael are best friends, the situation spirals out of control quickly. Instead of dealing with her broken heart, Kate ignores it. 

When Kate’s actions drive her to do the unthinkable, she knows she’s crossed the line. Unfortunately, she doesn’t realize it until it’s too little, too late. Her actions have consequences and now she’s trying to fix the unfixable. Can the men in Kate’s life grant her the forgiveness she can’t even find within herself?

Kristen Proby's Secret Announcement & Reveal

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby has been sitting on a secret, and we get to share it with you today! We think all of her readers across the board will be thrilled to hear what's coming next!Check out what Kristen has to say about the upcoming plans...
Dear readers,

As you know, the With Me In Seattle series came to a close earlier this month with the eighth and final installment, FOREVER WITH ME. I've been steadfast in my decision that there would be no further stories from the series, no spin-offs, nothing more. In my mind, it was complete.

And I still feel that the Montgomery/Williams families are complete, and I maintain that I'm happy with their happy-ever-afters. 

But, I've also heard you when you've said that Asher, Matt Montgomery's partner in TIED WITH ME, deserves to have a happily ever after for himself and his daughter Casey. So, when the lovely ladies from 1001 Dark Nights asked me to participate in their wonderful project, I thought long and hard about whose story it should be about. Seattle is finished, and I've moved on to New Orleans for the new Boudreaux Series... And then it occurred to me: why not do both, and offer a companion novella to each of the series?

And so, because you, the reader, has been so insistent that you want to see Asher and Casey find their perfect person, I'm excited to introduce you to EASY WITH YOU. I think you're going to love Asher and Lila's love story this spring...

Happy Reading,
Kristen Proby

Can you believe it??

EASY WITH YOU, a companion novella to both the With Me in Seattle Series and her upcoming Boudreaux Series, will be releasing March 24, 2015! Now you can see some of your favorite characters again while they interact with some new ones. We're so excited to get Asher and Lila's story! Check out the cover for the novella and all the information on EASY WITH YOU below!

Synopsis

Nothing has ever come easy for Lila Bailey. She’s fought for every good thing in her life during every day of her thirty-one years. Aside from that one night with an impossible to deny stranger a year ago, Lila is the epitome of responsible.

Steadfast. Strong.

She’s pulled herself out of the train wreck of her childhood, proud to be a professor at Tulane University and laying down roots in a city she’s grown to love. But when some of her female students are viciously murdered, Lila’s shaken to the core and unsure of whom she can trust in New Orleans. When the police detective assigned to the murder case comes to investigate, she’s even more surprised to find herself staring into the eyes of the man that made her toes curl last year.

In an attempt to move on from the tragic loss of his wife, Asher Smith moved his daughter and himself to a new city, ready for a fresh start. A damn fine police lieutenant, but new to the New Orleans force, Asher has a lot to prove to his colleagues and himself.

With a murderer terrorizing the Tulane University campus, Asher finds himself toe-to-toe with the one woman that haunts his dreams. His hands, his lips, his body know her as intimately as he’s ever known anyone. As he learns her mind and heart as well, Asher wants nothing more than to keep her safe, in his bed, and in his and his daughter’s lives for the long haul.

But when Lila becomes the target, can Asher save her in time, or will he lose another woman he loves?

Blog Tour + Giveaway // The Witches of the Glass Castle : Uprising by Gabriella Lepore

Title: The Witches of the Glass Castle: Uprising
Author: Gabriella Lepore
Genre: YA, Paranormal Romance
Release Date: December 16, 2014
Mia's life is turned upside down when she uncovers her family secret—that she and her brother Dino are witches. 

Seeking refuge in an ancient castle, the siblings begin down a path that will change their lives forever. Suddenly thrust into a world where handsome warriors command the power of nature and peoples thoughts and actions can be manipulated at will, Mia and Dino struggle to navigate their own allegiances and do what they know to be right, even when everything around them seems beyond their control.
Mia gazed around the land. Beyond the embankment, the forest stood staunchly behind its silvery mist. A natural curiosity held her focus to it. She was at a safe enough distance to really study it, and she couldn’t resist indulging in the temptation of doing so. After all, the forest held such mystery – it was impossible not to be intrigued by it. But the longer she watched it, the more uncomfortable it made her. Suddenly she felt extremely exposed, as though she was no longer simply watching, but was, in fact, being watched.
Mia glanced around, intimidated by the thought of eyes upon her. There was no one around; she was alone. Although perhaps that wasn’t a good thing.
When she looked back to the forest, the rain before her eyes seemed to distort her vision. It was as though the flow of rainfall was different somehow. And as it progressively worsened, she could barely see her own hand in front of her face. Now, the rain was no longer falling straight down, but rather it was dropping diagonally and in zigzag patterns, as though it had been caught in a ferocious whirlwind.
A familiar breeze caressed her wet hair. Mia stiffened instinctively. A Hunter was near.
Gabriella Lepore lives on the coast of Wales in the United Kingdom. She began writing at an early age and grew up with a passion for all things supernatural—especially witches! She currently has five Young Adult books in print: How I Found You, Evanescent, Phoenix Holt, and The Witches of the Glass Castle books 1 & 2.

  Image Map  

Synopsis

Starting over in Denver with a whole new circle of friends and family, Asa Cross struggles with being the man he knows everyone wants him to be and the man he knows he really is. A leopard doesn’t it change its spots and Asa has always been a predator. He doesn’t want to hurt those who love and rely on him, especially one stunning arresting cop who suddenly seems to be interested in him for far more than his penchant for breaking the law. But letting go of old habits is hard, and it’s easy to hit bottom when it’s the place you know best. Royal Hastings is quickly learning what the bottom looks like after a tragic situation at work threatens not only her career but her partner’s life. As a woman who has only ever had a few real friends she’s trying to muddle through her confusion and devastation all alone. Except she can’t stop thinking about the sexy southern bartender she locked up. Crushing on Asa is the last thing she needs but his allure is too strong to resist. His long criminal record can only hurt her already shaky career and chasing after a guy who has no respect for the law or himself can only end in heartbreak. A longtime criminal and a cop together just seems so wrong . . . but for Asa and Royal, being wrong together is the only right choice to make.

Review // Strayed (Caged Series #6) by Amber Lynn Natusch

Synopsis


Reunited at last, Ruby and Scarlet have tried to mend their fractured relationship. But Scarlet’s unwillingness to share what she did during her three week expedition has Ruby frustrated and Sean seething. When Ruby starts to remember events she never witnessed, it becomes clear that Scarlet’s days of secrecy were far more nefarious than she let on.

As though that weren’t enough, an enigmatic note and key entangle Ruby in an off-the-book murder investigation. Detective Alan Beauchamp will stop at nothing to uncover the truth surrounding the death of his mentor. But when he and Ruby attempt to retrieve the evidence necessary to solve the case, they soon find themselves in the killer’s sights.

With unknown assailants after her and Scarlet’s dark deeds surfacing, can Ruby survive long enough to find a way out of death’s path, or will events already set in motion lead to her ultimate demise?



Review

OK, so the Caged Series is one of my absolute favorite series EVER! To be honest, when I really got into Paranormal, this was one of the series that I started with and I've been hooked every since. And I'll warn whoever is reading this review and wondering about this series, if you haven't read the books previous to Strayed, then I suggest you leave this review and buy the first one in the series! You have a lot of catching up to do.

I received an ARC and it was such an honor, and it seriously felt like Christmas because I have been (along with many others) eagerly awaiting this book! Anyways, lets get to my review.

I did have a forewarning from Amber about what to expect from this book and it sure did take me on a crazy ride ... full of emotions! And not just that, but prepare for the unexpected, I was nearly dumbfounded with what we learn from this book, you'll be shocked too or maybe something close to it.

I re-read the entire series before I got to Strayed because I wanted to have everything fresh in mind, especially with all the character developments and the ever-loving relationship between Sean and Ruby. And Amber does a phenomenal job really laying out all the characters for you and I secretly want to be part of their world, I would love a little family like that! And as embarrassing as it sounds, this book made me tear more than I expected ... you will all know exactly what I'm talking about when it happens. I came to fall in love even more with all of the characters, especially Cooper, he becomes quite the voice of reason in this book, believe it or not. We are introduced to a new character and I've become VERY curious about that one, simply, I just have to know more!

What should you expect? Well as in true Ruby fashion, she'll have quite the load to deal with and it's rather unreal! Like holy shit, how the hell did that all happen?! I did get rather frustrated with her especially when it came to Sean, that girl definitely needed some sense knocked back into her. It's rather disappointing because she clearly didn't remember what a certain someone said to her back in the previous books ... like an angel. But seriously people, the amount of stuff Ruby has to get through, it's pretty damn crazy. Thankfully, A LOT of your questions will be answered, as I was re-reading the series, so many questions popped up. Even my sneaking suspicion with a couple of characters, most of them were all answered.

And as much as I don't really want to admit this, but I'm starting to like Scarlet, you will learn quite a bit about her. She's still the biggest spitfire ever, but certain events really brought another side of her out that I didn't expect to see.

In Strayed, we get better sense of the direction that the story will go. A lot of my questions weren't answered until near middle-end. With most series, you just wonder what the end result will be and who the big battle will be between. Of course, I'm assuming that, gotta go out with a bang, right? Well who knows, I can be totally wrong!

As you can tell from my review, it's a complete ramble. It was so hard to write this review without revealing one bit of information. With this being the 6th book in the series, there's just so much that happens throughout the series and even more so in this one. Amber has created a phenomenal series that has kept me hooked from book 1. As impatient as I can be, I will always wait to get the next book in an awesome series. Her writing will completely draw you in and wanting more by the end of each book. We're only a few books near the end of this series and I know there will be so much more to come. If you're a paranormal fan like me, you'll love this book and series as a whole. If you haven't read any from this series, go and get your hands on them now! You'll go through all the feels as your reading and I hope you all fall in love with this like I did.

NOTE : All books in this series should be read in order, they are not standalones!

MY RATING // 5 STARS!!



About The Author

If you're dying to know more about me, allow me to put you at ease. I'm a sharp-tongued, sarcastic cancer, who loves vegetable smoothies, winter storms, and the word 'portfolio'. I should NEVER be caffeinated, and require at least eight hours of sleep to even resemble a human being. At thirty-four, I just now feel like I can keep a straight face while saying the word "rectum" (which is actually a huge lie because I just laughed out loud while reading this to my husband). I live with my iPod firmly affixed to my body, drive too fast, and laugh/cry at inappropriate times. I'm obsessed with urban fantasy... When I discovered that genre, I knew I had found my tribe. Now I write in that world because that's what the voices in my head tell me to do. And they are very, very loud.
