Goodreads

Blurb
Seventeen-year-old Raine Cooper has enough on her plate dealing with her father’s disappearance, her mother’s erratic behavior and the possibility of her boyfriend relocating. The last thing she needs is Torin St. James—a mysterious new neighbor with a wicked smile and uncanny way of reading her.

Raine is drawn to Torin’s dark sexiness against her better judgment, until he saves her life with weird marks and she realizes he is different. But by healing her, Torin changes something inside Raine. Now she can’t stop thinking about him. Half the time, she’s not sure whether to fall into his arms or run.

Scared, she sets out to find out what Torin is. But the closer she gets to the truth the more she uncovers something sinister about him. What Torin is goes back to an ancient mythology and Raine is somehow part of it. Not only is she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life.



Immortals (Book 2)

Blurb

Nothing can stop Raine Cooper when she wants something…

Raine finally knows that her gorgeous neighbor, Torin St. James, is a legend straight out of Norse mythology, and that her feelings for him are strong. Torin is crazy about Raine too, breaking the one rule he lives by: Never fall for a mortal. The problem is he no longer remembers her, his memories erased by Norns—Norse destiny deities—to punish her for defying them.

So Raine comes up with a plan...

She will make Torin forget his one rule a second time and fall in love with her all over again. But she quickly learns that well-laid plans do not work when dealing with deities and supernatural beings. Desperate, Raine makes choices that could not only tear her and Torin further apart, but lead to the destruction of everything and everyone she loves.

Grimnirs (Book 2.5)

Blurb

Straight out of the psyche ward, Cora just wants her life to be normal. She doesn’t want to see souls or the reapers collecting them. The love of her life, the guy she’s loved from a distance for years, has moved away without saying goodbye. So yes, she’s nursing a serious heartbreak. It’s no wonder love is the last thing on her mind when Echo storms into her life.

The chemistry between them is mind-blowing. The connection defies logic. It doesn’t help that Echo is the poster boy for everything she hates in a guy—hot, beautiful, and cocky. A general pain-in-the-butt. Being around him makes her feel more alive than she’s ever felt before. But more important, the souls leave her alone when he is around.

Echo is perfect for her. Echo might even be her soul-mate. There is only one problem. Echo is a freaking soul reaper. A Grimnir. The very beings she wants out of her life. Maybe normal is overrated because Cora wants it all. Answers. Love. A life. You see, once you fall for a Grimnir, your life will never be the same again.


Awakened (Book 1)

Orphaned as a child and raised by an eccentric grandfather, Lil is concerned with surviving high school and is unaware that she's a Guardian-a being with super powers charged with killing demons and protecting humanity. When she meets Bran, a mysterious boy with amazing abilities, his psi energy unlocks her latent powers.

Just when Lil thinks she's found a balance between her normal life with human friends and her training to become a Guardian, she's warned that someone close to her will betray her. When the boy she loves starts acting strangely and one of her human friends acquires a supernatural ability, Lil begins to realize that someone is manipulating the people she loves... and won't stop until she's been lured to the dark side.

Bran and Lil may have escaped an attempt to lure Lil to the dark side,
and recovered the contracts damned people signed with Bran when he was
a soul collector, but someone forgot to tell them that no one switches sides or
cancels contracts without consequences.

Hunted by an unknown but powerful enemy, Lil, Bran and the Guardians must
seek help from unlikely sources to avert total annihilation of the Guardians.
When they finally face their enemy, one of them may have to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Tour Stop | Review | Vampire World by Rich Douglas








Mrs. Potter’s Book Publicity Services

Presents

Blog Tour for Vampire World by Rich Douglas







Blurb/Synopsis

A popular teen is bitten by a vampire during a steamy night of making out with her boyfriend. After the bite, she wakes up in a cruel orphanage in Vampire World, with no memory of her past. She’s left with very little; only fangs, pale skin and a keen desire for blood.

Marissa, who’s named Janice in Vampire World, escapes the ghastly orphanage thanks to Mr. John FreeCut, an old, benevolent vampire who adopts Janice because he wants to foster children he could never have. He says her parents died in a crash. Beautiful, innocent and thrust into an enigmatic world she has no memory of, Janice must face many challenges. The grueling blood hostess job. The multiple stalkers and creepers who are hungry for her and her blood. The dizzying fireball competition. And most challenging, the fact that she doesn’t look or act like a vampire.

Janice is emotionally overwhelmed. Thankfully she makes some friends, including Brett BloodCut. Brett and Janice are immersed in a passionate romance, and Brett helps Janice adjust to her new world by giving her the love, confidence and knowledge she needs to survive as a vampire. Janice finds a way to succeed in such a problematic world. Things go well for Janice, though not for long. A stranger knows the truth about her past.

Slowly but surely Janice discovers the truth that she is being lied to by the ones she loves. She must learn the secret behind TriFang, and ultimately accept the stinging reality that things are not always what they seem. Could the truth ever be so bloody?

Excerpt from Chapter 1 (SPOTLIGHTS ONLY PLEASE)

3:15 P.M.

I can’t believe it. Could life get any sweeter? Here I am, finishing up my third year of high school, on the brink of one exciting summer.
“The end of the year party is tomorrow night at Molly’s girl. Can’t wait to see you and Rob there.”
I tell my cheerleading teammate and best friend Katey that I’ll be there. I feel like I’m walking down a fashion catwalk as I make my down the school hallway.
“Oh, Marissa, that shirt looks great on you!”
“I love the hair, girl.”
“Those shoes are amazing. Where did you get them?”
I know, I know. I look good. Everybody loves me. Especially my boyfriend.
I have to ignore the compliments. I’m not being rude, but Rob catches my attention.
“You look great baby,” he says, noticing how much better I look when I don’t have to wear a school uniform, thanks to the last day of school.
We’ve been together for three months, the best time of my life. As a wrap my arms around Rob’s hot body, and peer into his crystal blue eyes, I know I must be in heaven.
“You’re still picking me up at 6:15?”
“Yeah,” he says. “I got the perfect place to take you tonight to celebrate our three month’s anniversary.”
“Oh, I can’t wait.”
We kiss passionately, breaking another school rule.

4: 30 P.M

Driving around in my father’s silver Camero on the way home from school, I pull into a Seven Eleven. Inside, I grab a Twinkie and the latest edition of Cosmo. While I wait in the checkout line, behind me a stinky old man with a jungle-like beard is staring right at my chest. Gosh, he’s a creeper. I make my way to the cashier as I can still smell his reeking breath.
Outside, I read the headlines of a newspaper in a rusty dispenser: “12 missing in two weeks: Centerville on Alert.”
I don’t get the chance to care much about the news. But this is disturbing. Suddenly a shadow overtakes me. Turning around, I go eye to eye with the creepy man in the line.
“You better stay home tonight sweetheart,” he says. “Stay home if you want to live.”
I back up a few steps.
“Who are you?” I yell. “Get away from me!”
I jump into the car and start the engine. And I don’t look back.

6:15 P.M.

I change into my tight jeans and put on a very cute red shirt. Combing my long dark hair, I put on my pink wedges that propel me to a sexy 5’10.
Downstairs in the living room, I run into my father.
“Where are you heading out to tonight? Rob coming to get you?”
“Yes,” I say.
Appearing concerned, he turns up the volume to the large flat screen TV. The news is on, as I watch the blonde bombshell anchor.
“Is a vampire loose in Centerville? No one knows who is responsible for the disappearance of twelve Centerville residents, but one thing does remain: fear. News 12 has learned that one man witnessed an attack by someone who was dressed as a vampire.”
The camera does not reveal the identity of the man, but I can hear his distressed voice.
“It was a…a. real vampire! I…I saw him bite my friend! I….”
Dad turns the TV off.
“I don’t know what the heck is going on Marissa, but just be careful tonight. You and Rob go where people are. Promise?”
“I promise.”
Of course I lie. The doorbell rings.
My heart flutters as Rob enters. We both tell my father we’re going to the movies. He watches me leave as I hop into Rob’s blazing yellow Mustang.
Before I know it, we’re kissing as his illegally tinted windows hide us from any peepers. I gawk at my football player stud, and I lose my breath.
“Where are we going?” I eagerly say.
“I told you I’d take you someplace nice baby. Just you wait.”
“I can’t wait.”
“For the best moment of your life, right?” he says.
I know exactly what he means. It’s a big decision. But I’m more than ready. Being with him is so awesome. And it’s going to happen eventually, so why not now?
He slams on the gas and we weave through the streets of Centerville. Rob doesn’t say much. But that’s ok.
“So I figure we’re not going to the movies,” I state.
“Hell no. Just be quiet and relax.”
I remain happily silent. But something flashes across my mind.
“You heard about the people disappearing?” I ask. “That’s creepy, huh?”
“Yeah,” Rob responds. “But don’t worry, I ain’t going to let some serial killer dressed as a vampire hurt you.”
I become more thrilled as we leave the city limits, and enter a forest on a narrow road. The road loses its pavement as Rob drives up steep, blinding curves. Eventually the forest clears and we stop at an impressive overlook. The entire city of Centerville glistens in the darkness perhaps some three hundred feet down the rocky cliff.
“Oh, it’s so beautiful,” I say.
Those are the last words I remember before we’re kissing again. Rock music plays in the background as the moonlight filters inside. Rob loses his shirt. He kisses me harder as I breathe harder. There’s no turning back now….I love him…
There’s a loud crack. Glass falls on my back.
“What the hell?” shouts Rob.
The window is broken, as I see a rock lying on the back seat.
Fuming, a shirtless Rob gets out the car.
“I’m gonna kill you, bastard!” he screams. Thoughts of the serial killer enter my mind as I follow Rob out the car. He runs towards the woods.
“Where are you going?” I yell. “Come back! You don’t know what’s out there, with all the people disappearing!”
He turns around.
“Oh don’t be stupid Marissa. I’m 6 foot 4. I can handle myself! Stay here while I go hunt down the ass that did this!”
He disappears into the trees. I begin to shiver as the silence is heavy.
“Rob?” I say.
There is a piercing scream.
“ROB!”
I freeze in fear. Oh my gosh, that was Rob!  Rapidly I move my feet and enter the forest.
“Rob, where are you?” I ask.
I hear nothing. Tears flow from my eyes as the dark trees trap me in.
“R….Rob?!”
I hear something crack, like a branch.
“Is that you Rob?”
There is a break in the tree branches above me, as moonlight filters down.
I see a shadow move towards me. Next I witness something hideous: an unusually pale man with spiky gray hair and a heavy beard is running towards me. My eyes widen with disbelief when I see two sharp fangs protruding out of his mouth. Oh my god….Oh my god….
“ROOOOOOOOOB!” I wail.
I close my eyes and look away, unable to run. Yet the serial killer is breathing down my neck. I open my eyes, staring him down. His breath smells like rotten eggs, as I’m too scared to move. Then he opens his mouth slowly. I see his massive teeth plunge deeply into my neck.
Ahhhhhhhh…..
I fall to the ground, remembering nothing but burning pain seething through my veins. The world is spinning…spinning…and I pass out.

Cover Reveal | The Grace In Darkness by Melissa Andrea #TheEdgeOfDarkness #TheGraceInDarkness

The Grace in Darkness 
Blurb

Every part of me yearns for Ryland and there hasn’t been a day that’s gone by that I don’t question if I made the right decision. Adjusting is something I should be used to by now but how can I do that when life has other plans?

When darkness consumes you, only true light can free you

Remembering how I existed before Araya came into my life and turned everything upside down has been the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. I can’t stand to be round anyone and the feeling is mutual. But I’m ready to take back what’s mine. I’m ready to be whole again. But every decision has a choice and every choice has a consequence.

To find the grace in darkness, you must
Dare to be BRAVE
Dare to be STRONG
Dare to be ALIVE

Teaser

"I can’t come back as anything that didn’t allow me to be close to you, Hummingbird, because damn it all to hell if I don’t exist unless I’m with you.” -Ryland

The Edge of Darkness 
Blurb

I loved to dance, but I don’t anymore.

I was in an accident I don’t remember… or maybe I don’t want to remember.

Either way, every day since, has been an adjustment and I’m left with a constant reminder that nothing is forever.

Now, my life is a tangled web of darkness filled with deceit, hate, betrayal and lies. I don’t dwell on the past, I don’t regret and I don’t remember… I survive. But then I met Ryland Dare and he changed everything. He reminded me that life’s worth living and that remembering isn’t always a bad thing.

You don’t know true darkness until you've felt light…

On the outside looking in, some would say my siblings and I have had a pretty easy life. But beyond the fancy cars, the huge house and endless social events, is where the truth really lies. Power hungry father, defeated mother and fake friends? Yeah I have one of each. Then Araya Noelle comes along and shows me what I’ve been missing. She thinks I changed her life, but really, she saved mine.

At the edge of darkness, you must
Dare to HOPE
DARE to LOVE
DARE to LIVE
Excerpt

“I’ve never met anyone like you before Araya. The way you view life and love; you’re not angry with anything that’s happened to you.”

I turned my head toward him, and a smile tilted the corner of my lips. “Yeah, I’m kind of amazing that way.” I teased.

He rolled over, bracing his arms on either side of my head, and we stared at each other upside down. His thumbs swept across my cheeks and his fingers caressed the sides of my neck up to my jaw. Tilting my
neck back, he kissed my chin, and the dip below my bottom lip. He brushed his lips back and forth over mine, but the touch was so light, I couldn’t even be completely sure it had happened.

“Yes, you are.” He whispered.

About the Author
I find it hard to sum up my life in a paragraph, but I'll try.

Reading has always been a passion for me, and writing as instinctive as breathing. Every inhale is an idea; every exhale a creation. Flutter will be my debut release, and I couldn't be more excited about it! The only thing I do better than writing you ask? Making beautiful girls. My daughter's will always be my greatest accomplishment.

I was born in Denver, Colorado -but I will always think of sunny Arizona as my home. I don't have a big family, but I'm close with my sister, brother & my mom. My mom is my hero, my inspiration, and I couldn't have asked for a more amazing person to be raised by.

4 things you should know about me: I'm very girly, but I can get down and dirty with the best of them. I adore the color pink, I love things that sparkle (including vampires) and I like even numbers (hence 4 things about me, not 5)
