Blog Tour: Revenge Fires Back by JR Thompson

Revenge Fires Back TourRevengefiresback5

He tries to control his anger,but it gets the best of him.
He makes poor decisions,and quickly discovers
REVENGE FIRES BACK

Brady Clark's family chooses horrible timing for their first camping trip - a night when a fierce storm leaves them stranded in the woods. Circumstances that leave him running around in the forest wearing, well, let's just say less than appropriate attire cause him to unleash his anger by physically assaulting his father. Not yet ready to face the discipline he has coming, Brady makes false allegations against both of his parents.

That one foolish move throws the Clarks into a world they know very little about. A world that could possibly prevent them from ever dwelling together again as a family unit. Can God use these trials to wake this family up to His purpose?

Christian novelist JR Thompson, and his wife Hannah, are residents of Montana. He writes fiction and maintains a blog on his website. None of Thompson's writings contain any foul language.

 EXCERPT

“You’re blackmailing me,” I sneered at him, fury raging within me at the realization. “You want me to do something in return before you allow me to wake up.”

He raised his hand in a gesture of supplication. “Not blackmail,” he assured. “I’m looking to employ you for a time.”

I recoiled. “Employ me? As what? Muscle? Is this the Underworld’s version of the Mafia?” Now that I thought about it, Hades did remind me of a mob boss. He even looked like some I knew.

“I don’t play that, sorry.” Hades grinned. “I want to make a deal with you, Callista. You find out who is trying to kill my son. Give me a name and a motive. And I’ll restore you to life.”

5-Star Review: LEGACY by Lindsey R. Loucks

1-Lindsey


Finding him was easy. Figuring him out is the hard part. 

Only one thing could make nineteen-year-old Hadley Hawthorn leave her house for the first time in two years—revenge. The Isa fae murdered her entire family, so the promise of ending their control over witches like Hadley is too sweet to resist. 

All she needs to do is find Kason Fields, a human who’s supposedly the key to ending Isa fae power. Hadley’s hacking skills and her patience level of zero make that part simple. But when she inadvertently leads the Isa fae straight to Kason’s doorstep, things get complicated. Now, it’s up to her to keep them both two steps ahead of the murderous fae. 

But staying close to the secretive Kason unfurls something even stronger than Hadley’s need for revenge—hope. When the Isa fae close in, though, hope may not be enough to keep them both alive.

Review

When Hadley Hawthorn heads out into the ice and snow in search of revenge, she has no idea she might just find hope instead. Tortured by her past and convinced she has no future, Hadley still can't help but be drawn to the possibilities for life that she glimpses when she meets Kason Fields.

Lindsey Loucks' LEGACY is everything I love in a fantasy romance. The heroine is smart and snarky, but vulnerable nonetheless. The hero is handsome and brooding, but tender, too. Add in some evil fae hunting them both, and the result is a wild ride as these two go careening through their frozen world, sparking change wherever they land--as well as lighting a fire between the two of them that could melt an icecap.

Five GIANT stars!!!

New Release and #Giveaway: Damned Either Way by Erin Hayes ~ #PNR #UF

DEWheader

DEWcover
Damned Either Way 
Erin Hayes 
(The Harker Trilogy, #3) 
Publication date: May 31st 2017 
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

The thrilling conclusion to The Harker Trilogy

I’m finally free of my family’s curse. 
Except now, the world is ending. FML.

Anthony, the vampire that killed my sister and my brother-in-law, has won. I’ve lost everything. I no longer have my powers. I have no idea where Amelia is. And the vampire I love has surrendered to the hunger that is throwing the world into chaos.

The worst part? I can’t do anything about it, because I’m no longer the Harker. Sure, I’m not dying anymore, but I’m barely living at this point.
But there may be one last chance to save us all. If only I can find it in me to make one final sacrifice.



The complete trilogy is on sale for only $0.99 until June 5th!

EXCERPT:

 The Twinkie is mushed and some of the cream is coming out, but as I pull it out of the wrapper, I can’t help but be gentle.

I found the single-serve pastry in a hollowed-out convenience store in downtown Birmingham a few days back. It’s the only thing resembling a cake that we’ve found on our way to Austin. In the aftermath of the apocalypse, all the grocery stores are empty as everyone panicked and stole every little thing they could get their hands on. Many of them are now hiding out in their houses during the night.

Those that are alive anyway.

I could make a cake myself, but we are never in one place long enough for me to find an oven and make one. With one arm, it’s a little…hard.

Besides, this is just a small ritual that I want to do myself. I don’t need to decorate it. I just need to…pay tribute. With the only kind of food that would survive the apocalypse.

I light the candle that I stuck in it, its soft glow flickering in the dying light. I give a small smile, feeling my heart break.

“Happy birthday, Amelia.”

New Release: More Than Skin Deep

snakechickbook3

More Than Skin Deep 
New York Times bestselling author Margo Bond Collins
A Shifter Shield Book

★☆★Shifting's more than skin deep. And terror goes to the bone.★☆★

Having eliminated the shifter community's stalker and agreed to care for a pile of new baby lamias, child counselor and weresnake Lindi Parker believes she'll be able to settle into her newly domestic life with her mongoose-shifter boyfriend, Kade Nevala.

But she didn't count on being on duty at her new job as a Shifter Shield when a hyena-shifter shows up requesting asylum—along with his girlfriend. She's a Hunter from a hereditary clan of monster trackers, and a semi-mythical figure of dread among shifters.

Worse, they have an entire werewolf pack after them, howling for their blood.

Now they’re after Lindi, too.


 Get weresnake Lindi Parker's latest adventure in this bestselling series that “…takes shifter fantasy to a new and exciting realm” ~Amazon reviewer

Excerpt:

The door of the Fort Worth, Texas, Shifter Shield office slammed open, hitting the wall behind it so hard I was afraid it would leave a dent. A couple dashed in and shut the door behind them. The man threw the bolt locks and scanned the rest of our limited additional security. While he did this, the small woman strode up to the desk and purposefully placed both hands flat on the surface. She leaned forward, almost into my personal space, and said, “We need to see the lamia.”

I assumed she meant me—since I was the only adult snake-shifter in the area, and perhaps in existence, she almost had to. However, the enormous ax sticking up over her head from between her shoulder blades suggested that perhaps I didn’t need to see them—not without getting a sense of who they were and why they were invading my workspace.

I work with frantic people for a living, though, both in my job as a counselor and as a type of police officer for the Shields. I pulled on my counselor face—smooth, bland, and only mildly interested in whatever it was that had gotten my clients (or in this case, the ax-wielding blonde and her boyfriend) stirred up.

I leaned back in the office chair and tented my fingers in front of me. “Why do you need to see her?”

“She is the only one we will talk to,” the woman ground out from between clenched teeth. Her eyes were the pale, almost-white blue of a Siberian Husky’s, and they glared at me with a cold fire, barely banked.

I raised one eyebrow and waited. It was a technique I found I used as much as a Shield as I did in my other job as a children’s counselor. People want to fill silences. In the meantime, I used the few seconds of quiet as an opportunity to study the pair.

In terms of appearance, they were exact opposites. She was leggy, but tiny, with incredibly pale skin and long hair so blonde it was almost white. He was taller, a light-skinned black man with luminous brown eyes.

Pulling in a breath across the half-shifted Jacobson’s organ in the roof of my mouth, I parsed out what I could of their scents. They were obviously lovers, their individual scents interwoven so completely that it was difficult to differentiate them.

Difficult, but not impossible.

He was some kind of shifter—something I’d never smelled before—and she was… Well, she was baseline human. There was something else there that I had never encountered before, though. To my weresnake senses, it smelled wild, but didn’t taste like anything shifter or animal. But it carried that fizz along the edge, like a lightly carbonated drink, that suggested its owner belonged to the world of the paranormal.

Yeah—whatever she was, she was definitely supernatural.

“Maybe I can help you?” I asked.

They exchanged a look full of information that I couldn’t interpret, and then the man stepped up. “We must speak to the lamia. She is, we believe, the only one who might believe us—might trust us.” His voice was musical, the words spoken in the accent of some African country.

I chewed on the inside of my bottom lip as I considered the couple in front of me. I inhaled another breath, trying to taste intentions in the molecules of air. All my senses were telling me that they were nervous, but not actively hiding anything. They weren’t lying. They definitely thought I would be able to help them.

After a long moment, I nodded and sat up straight. “I’m Lindi Parker. I’m the one you’re looking for.”
