This Monday I am actually going back to the last couple of books I haven’t finished. Some I just lost interest in because I felt the author was setting up the story to continue without giving me my happy ending, and who doesn’t love a happy ending, or I wasn’t swept up in the thrill of the story. This week I am going to try my best to push through most of these stories and of course get one step closer to my reading goals.
Wish me luck, until next time be sure to Read THS.
This weeks Free E-book Friday special genre is Fantasy. This week I decided to provide the summary/synopsis along with one book from different vendors, because who doesn’t love free books? I figured giving you all a bunch of books that I’ve read the synopsis on and found interesting, but not providing it for you guys makes it difficult to know if you want to choose the books or not. Below you will find three different companies, with one book, the site will be linked, and the authors page will be linked to their names as well, and as promised the synopsis of the story so you can hopefully come to the same conclusion that I have. Free books, with good summaries do nothing but increase your TBR lists.
Book four Angels of Bourbon Street is due out in May of 2013
Haunted on Bourbon Street Jade loves her new apartment–until a ghost joins her in the shower.
When empath Jade Calhoun moves into an apartment above a strip bar on Bourbon Street, she expects life to get interesting. What she doesn’t count on is making friends with an exotic dancer, attracting a powerful spirit, and developing feelings for Kane, her sexy landlord.
Being an empath has never been easy on Jade’s relationships. It’s no wonder she keeps her gift a secret. But when the ghost moves from spooking Jade to terrorizing Pyper, the dancer, it’s up to Jade to use her unique ability to save her. Except she’ll need Kane’s help–and he’s betrayed her with a secret of his own–to do it. Can she find a way to trust him and herself before Pyper is lost?
Witches of Bourbon Street
Jade Calhoun was never fond of her empath abilities. Now she’s discovered she has another gift she’d rather not unwrap–magic. But when her mentor, Bea, becomes gravely ill and insists Jade’s the only one who can help, she’s forced to embrace her witchy side.
It’s too bad she spent a decade shunning the magical community and never learned to harness her powers. Because time’s run out. A trapped spirit has revealed a clue to Jade’s long-lost mother. The resident angel has gone rogue and disappeared with Jade’s boyfriend, Kane. And if that wasn’t enough, her ex appears to be possessed.
To save any of them, Jade will need to find a way to control her inner white witch–without succumbing to black magic. Otherwise, she’ll lose everything…including her soul.
Demons of Bourbon Street
New Orleans coven leader, Jade Calhoun, is embarking on a Hellish mission. Literally. A week ago her ex sacrificed himself to Hell in order to save Jade’s mother. While he suffers, Jade will stop at nothing to bring him home…even if it means working with Lailah, an angel she’s never trusted.
But the stakes are raised when Jade discovers her boyfriend, Kane, is marked by a demon. The very same one who tried seducing him right before Jade’s eyes. Now Kane’s life is on the line, and consequently, Jade’s soul is compromised. She’ll need all the help she can get, including Lailah’s, as she fights her way through Hell to save her ex and Kane—and her entire existence.
Mace and Raven are given a mission to stop a catastrophic event. With his halfling abilities still untapped, Vine is allowed to join the mission, but only as a spectator. The clock is ticking and the tragedy is proving difficult to stop. Will Vine be able to sit back and watch, or will the power of heaven unleash just in time?
Keira is content in her small, medieval village – well, sort of. Her mother is pressing her to marry, but her suitors are less than desirable. So when handsome Aaron Drake arrives in the village and sets his sights on Keira, she cannot help but be interested.
But Aaron is not the only new arrival in the area – a fire-breathing dragon has also taken up residence in the mountains, not far from the remote alpine castle that Aaron calls home. Keira finds Aaron intriguing, but there is clearly more to him than meets the eye, for why would a man of wealth, intelligence and charm forgo life in the city and choose to live in a remote mountain village, with a dragon as his nearest neighbor?
Awarded the Indie B.R.A.G. Medallion, Bound by a Dragon, the first book in The Dragon Archives, will sweep readers far from the modern world into a world of castles, medieval markets and fantastical romance.
2018 Comicpalooza held in Houston Texas is where I normally spend my Memorial Day weekend, this was my 8th year attending the convention and I can not wait until next years. This year I met and spoke with different authors, actors, and costume designers all wanting to share just how much they love what they do and how they took the chance and went after their dreams.
Orlando Jones and I. He was very pleasant to talk to, had tons of stories to share with us, and constantly had everyone laughing. His stories were out of this world, some of them I would have never in my wildest dreams thought up myself.
Ross Marquand, my mom and I. Super laid back guy, we literally talked about random stuff and also mentioned what movies we’ve yet had time to see, mine being Infinity Wars (don’t start with me, I have my reasons.).
Ruth Carter, the costume designer for Black Panther. We were able to sit in on her panel and boy was it awesome. Very eye opening to hear where she started and how hard she worked to get to where she is. I was able to get her autograph, and take pictures with her, can anyone saw black girl magic? Super inspiring to hear and see Ruth Carters history, and way of thought for the production of Black Panther, and to know that we can all acomplish the same things she has.
My Comicpalooza purchases, all products were signed by the authors, and all authors are new to me. I love trying out new authors and sharing them with all of my readers, hopefully there will be some reviews on these new guys soon.
First I’d like to say, Happy memorial Day and thank you to all that have served.
Happy Monday readers! I have recently started Temporary Bliss, by BJ Harvey
Goodreads rating: 3.81/5
Makenna Lewis cringes at any mention of the word commitment. She doesn’t want or need a relationship, but she does like sex (who doesn’t).
That explains Noah, Sean, and Zander, her three ‘friends with benefits’.
They know the score, they know they’re not the only one, and each of them provide her with a different physical need that she craves and enjoys.
Until a late night encounter with the delicious Daniel Winters turns her preconceived notion of no-commitment completely on its head.
Soon she finds herself feeling things she vowed never to feel again, and when Daniel pushes for more than she’s willing to give, she falters.
What do you do when something that you’ve known to be so wrong in the past feels so damn right?
If you’re Mac, you run and hide.
But is Daniel the type of man who takes no for an answer?
*Disclaimer – There is absolutely no cheating in this book. However, this book does contain descriptive and super hot sex scenes that will make you blush and leave you hot and bothered. Make sure you have your husband, partner, boyfriend or significant other nearby when reading, or else batteries. Lots and lots of batteries*
I started earlier on my lunch break, and I have to say the first chapter had me questioning the rest of the book. A lot of information was thrown at us within the first chapter of the main characters history and how she basically got to where she is now. But as I continued on to the next couple of chapters that all did change, I am now a little excited to see where this story can take me.
Until next time THS readers, remember to Read THS!
My latest birthday present was a 10′ Kindle, lately I have been reading on my phone, which is big but not big enough obviously. I’m so excited to have all of my reading tools in one space, with a big enough screen to actually see. lol
