Gwen Sparks gets a New Cover!

Let me just start off by saying this is one of my favorite series.  I'm not only super excited for the new covers, but the next book in the series, Hexed, will be out soon!!!


Craved – Book 1
Gwen Sparks just wants to live a peaceful life in the supernatural town of Flora, but from the moment she reads about the first murdered witch, all hope of peace is abandoned. Possessing the rare ability to read the memories of dead, she volunteers to help catch the culprit behind the string of drained witches. Gwen has to team up with the one man who broke her heart, deal with a ghost who pulls her into the deathly realm at will, and a fight off the advances of sexy but frustrating vampire who not only craves what runs through her veins—he wants her heart.

Deceived – Book 2
The vampire drug, brew, nearly ruined Gwen Sparks’ life. Just when things start to get back to normal between her and Aiden, she is summoned by the North American Witches Council to their central city of Moon. A war is imminent between vampires and witches, and Gwen’s spirit walker powers are being used to fuel the fire. She is about to discover just how powerful she is with the help of the ruggedly handsome Angel of Death and just how far some people will go to get what they want. Gwen is going to learn exactly what it means to be Deceived.

 Coveted – Book 3

Having prevented the war between the witches and vampires, Gwen Sparks was ready to move on and heal. She thought she could go home and her life would return to normal—she thought wrong. 

Being a spirit walker offers her protection, but it also put her life in danger as others covet what she possesses. A bounty is placed on Gwen and rogues, who will stop at nothing to get the job done, relentlessly track her. 

With no choice but to head to New Orleans to retrieve a special dagger, Gwen comes face to face with the angel of Death and the feelings she has been denying. Living in a world where everyone has a motive, can Gwen trust the connection she shares with Dorian Hade?

Hexed – Book 4 (Coming Soon)

Everything and everyone has an expiration date, including Gwen Sparks. When Dorian, the Angel of Death, saved her, he did more than bend the rules: he shattered them. 

When Gwen’s memories are stolen, the balance of life and death shifts, and magic goes on the fritz. Dorian realizes that even the angel of Death must face consequences for his mistakes. Everything and everyone has an expiration date, and time is running out for Gwen. If they don’t find a solution, Gwen’s borrowed time will come to an end, and Dorian will lose the woman he risked everything for. 

Both will have to make a life-changing decision. Dorian’s choice will result in either altering his very existence or losing Gwen forever. Gwen will risk everything to right Dorian’s wrong, and her decision may just result in her death.

The Litte Flame Series - Review

Nine30A

Nine30

They say home is where the heart is, but if that’s true, then I’m lost because I have no clue where my heart is, anymore. I thought I knew—until I met Maximillian. I was on my way out of the Capital City before the local vampires could catch on to me and let’s just say if that happened then this club dancer would be facing her expiration date. And that’s when the famous DJ blew into town—and into my head and heart. He turned all my plans upside down with his sick friend and his electric blue eyes, damn it. I should have cut bait and run for my life, but I couldn’t abandon someone I could heal—even if it meant the vampires might catch up with me. Besides, Maximillian smelled familiar, like deep forest and pine needles baked in the sun mixed with that chilly snap of running water and the coolness of twilight. Those things have a smell that adds up to a dream. You can get lost in that kind of dream. It can fill your mind with ideas and notions you have no business thinking or feeling. Dreams like that make it easy to forget the danger you’re in.


ElectricElectric

Between incubi, humate dealing trolls, and a vampire who sends all my circuits into overload, I’m going to be lucky if I get out of this town in one piece. They call it the city of brotherly love, but those are not the words that come to mind when I roll into town as part of the Maximillian crew. Feuding brothers is more like it. And isn't it always the way--when I finally have one patient healed, now I've got another one on my hands. And I’m all out of healing energy. That means I need to bag a much bigger catch and figure out what’s wrong with my sick fae, all while trying to worm my way out of the middle of a troll-vampire feud. Someone's going to die tonight and I hope like hell its not me.





StarLandStarLand

Sex slaves, insatiable masters, and curse wielding gypsies are just a few of the disturbing things growing in the Garden State. In the midst of all that, I’ve got to figure out what’s ailing Lelani—a stage name if I’ve ever heard one—before one particularly nasty vampire catches up with me. What was I thinking hooking up with a DJ and his crew when my demons could literally get us all killed? Duh, I wasn’t. Max’s musical magnetism overrode my common sense and this dangerous game could cost me my freedom. Sometimes, even I doubt my sanity.

The Big Apple is the next stop on the Maximillian Dubstep tour, and I’m about to bite off more than I can chew. A new friend is asking for the kind of help I’m not sure I can give. Saving his dying son is going to cost me, but I’d do it in a heartbeat if my life were the only price. But, I’m about to learn that there are worse things than dying. Falling in love, for one. I've faced blood, pain, and even excruciating loneliness, but nothing has prepared me for the choices I’m about to make. Death? Pfft. Child’s play. Love is a far scarier thing.

melissaAbout the Author Melissa Lummis considers herself a truth seeker, a peaceful warrior, a paranormal and fantasy writer, an avid reader, a thru-hiker GA?ME ’98, a Penn Stater, a wife, a mother, and a free thinker. She believes the universe conspires to help an adventurer. And if we live our lives as if it is a daring adventure (and it is!), then everything we need will find its way to us. Her books have been described as new age suspense in a fantasy setting, but they are also straight up, steamy Paranormal Romance. The Love and Light Series is currently available at most ebook retailers, as well as the Little Flame Series, a spin off focusing on the character Fiamette from the Love and Light world. She lives in rural Virginia with her husband, two children, an Alaskan Malamute, and a myriad of forest creatures. The nature of her mind dictates that she write to stay sane. Otherwise, her fertile imagination takes off on tangents of its own accord, creating scenarios and worlds that confuse the space-time continuum. Namaste, dear friends.

MY REVIEW-

I loved the Love and Light series, although I found it a little too descriptive for my coffee addled ADD mind.  With that said, I was so delighted to find the Little Flame series written in a fun, fast paced, way that draws you in and keeps you hooked.  Fiamette has been one of my favorite characters since her introduction in Enlightened.  When I heard Melissa Lummis was going to write a spin-off series, I couldn't wait...and when the first book ended in a cliffhanger, I got bent out of shape until I realize the next two books were out, so I could stay up until all hours of the morning reading them as well.

I gave it 5 stars on Amazon....but it somehow disappeared.  I'm totally looking forward to the next books in the series.

Just Desserts Pre-Order

JustDessertsCoverReveal

Just Desserts 5
When her friend Julia needed help forming a revenge plan against her ex-boyfriend, Ava was happy to lend a hand. She never expected that in the course of making Liam pay, she'd be the one to fall hard. . .for the one person who was absolutely off-limits. Crushing on the guy who humiliated her best friend is definitely against the girlfriend rules. Besides, Ava has goals. Her life is all about graduating with honors and landing the perfect job. And Liam Bailey--sweet-talking, complicated son of a well-known local politician--isn't part of those plans. But Liam doesn't give up easily. And he doesn't intend to let their friends' opinions, his parents' disapproval or Ava's past get in the way of what he wants--Ava's heart.

My Review of "DRAKE" Episode 1 EMERGENCE

DrakeBookTourbanner




drake_series_book_1_cover_v1Episode 1: Emergence

Lost to myth and legend, few believed that dragons were real, and still fewer believed they could ever return. When a covert operation resulted in their release, all the might and power of the world couldn't hold them back. With the world on the brink of defeat, the few who remain must grapple against all odds to combat an enemy that nearly drove us to the brink of extinction once before - and which is about to do so again. From bestselling author Mike Kraus (Final Dawn, Prip'Yat) comes a new, five-book series: Drake: An Oral History of the Dragon War. In what can be best described as "World War Z with dragons," Drake portrays a realistic, scientific history of the emergence of the drakes, and humanity's subsequent battle just to stay alive. The gripping 5-part series will take you around the world, examining the history of the war from all sides: political, military, civilian, scientific and more.

My Review
 
 
DRAKE an Oral History of the Dragon War, was by far one of the more interesting books I've read this year.  I found the odd style in which it was written rather appealing.  Like a good news report, you are drawn into each and every interview as the book delves deeper and into how the Dragon War began.  I have to give the author kudos for making the Drake emergence seem very much like a real event.

Professionally trained as a Systems Engineer, Mike has been a writer his entire life, spending his summers as a child writing of daring adventures and epic science-fiction exploits in a college-ruled notebook instead of playing video games. That love of writing stayed with him until it finally burst forth in the form of "Final Dawn," a thrilling post-apocalyptic series released in an episodic format that has sold over 70,000 copies and counting. Final Dawn was followed by two other stand-alone books, "Prip'Yat" and "Cold Springs," and Mike's latest work is a new five-part series titled "Drake: An Oral History of the Dragon War." Mike currently lives in Mississippi with his wife and three children and spends his days writing (of course), programming and tinkering on his PC.
