Book Review: The Last Blackstone Dragon

Hey folks today I got a book review for Alicia Montgomery’s paranormal romance book, The Last Blackstone Dragon. Hope you will stop by and check it out. I absolutely loved this book and can’t wait to read the rest of the series.

The Review

Riva Sinclair is a strong independent woman that will do anything for her father and his company. When they are on the verge of closing she does the unthinkable. She accepts and offer to get paid to marry a wealthy man named Hank Lennox. The last thing she expects is to be completely attracted to him.

Hank Lennox is a strong dragon shifter that has the burden of keeping his shifter town a float. If he doesn’t take a wife and start a family he leaves everyone with nothing. So, he does the unthinkable he tries to buy himself a wife. The only thing he doesn’t understand is why he is so attracted to her, could she be his true mate?

Alicia Montgomery does a fantastic job creating a situation where two unlikely people that are so different, but so similar together. The tension between the two keeps you on the edge of your seat and you find yourself rooting for them to get together. Then things start getting complicated and one issues after another starts to pull them apart. This book was so interesting I couldn’t put it down and I look forward to the rest of the books in this series. The nice thing is this book is up for grabs as a FREEBIE and the other books in the series are all on Kindle Unlimited. Talk about having my work cut out for me.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars


The Book

THE LAST BLACKSTONE DRAGONHenry “Hank” Lennox was the last of his family of dragon shifters, and heir to the crumbling Blackstone empire. In order to protect his people and his legacy, he decides on the unthinkable: buy himself a wife to produce the next generation and secure the future of his family. It was a purely business transaction, so he never thought the bride he meets on his wedding day could also be his mate.
Riva Sinclair would do anything to save her father and their family business, even going into an arranged marriage with a dragon shifter. It was supposed to be a marriage of convenience, a contract that stated she was bought and paid for. Still, she never expected to be so attracted to her husband, and the sky-high walls she put up to protect her heart are starting to crumble.
The same circumstances that brought to them together are about to tear them apart. Can they learn to trust each other or will their pasts destroy the fragile feelings that are only starting to bloom?

Character Interview: Edgar Wynn

It’s hump day! The weekend is almost here and do I got a treat for you. This character interview with Edgar Wynn is special because his book comes out this Saturday, August 10th. So, to get you in the spirits to pre-order his awesome book check out his character interview below. Happy reading everyone :).

The Interview

Who are you and what makes you great?

My name is Edgar Wynn. I don’t consider myself great at anything. My four brothers are much better skilled at most things than I am.

What is your sole purpose in life?

My assigned role in life is as a mage, but I’ve even managed to bungle that up and lose my ability to do magick. If it weren’t for the fairy dust Tribba got me, I wouldn’t have conjured that dragon or managed anything magickal at all.

What kind of adventures have you had that stay with you till this day?

Up until I was forced to leave my kingdom, my adventures were limited to exploring the Wynnrar Woods surrounding Northend, my city. Since then, traveling through the desert and meeting Juba (and him not eating me!) and championing the Hegis in Willowglen have stayed with me. I conjured a dragon! I’m also madly in love with a dwarf and can’t wait to get back to Willowglen to see her.

Do you have a love interest? If you do please tell us about him/her or why you don’t.

Salisa is the love of my life. I met her in Willowglen when we would go to the arena. She tends a cart in the marketplace. Her family has lived in Willowglen for a long time, and while Tribba disapproves of our relationship, it’s mostly because of some dark history between Salisa’s father and Tribba herself. Salisa isn’t her father though, and Tribba will come around in the end. She’d already started to when Derik forced me to return home.

Tell us about your journey you are on and how it has helped you grow as a person.

I left Northend to relearn my magick, but I never made it to the Great Mage. I championed Tribba in Willowglen instead. She helped me gain some self-confidence, even if I didn’t regain any of my own magick. At least now I have some people on my side, even if they are dwarves. I don’t believe the same as my brother Derik does. I believe everyone is equal, all have something equally important to contribute to Savania’s society. I’m not sure I would say I’ve grown any. I’m still as small as I was when I left. Derik reminds me of this often enough.

What kind of creatures do you see on a daily basis?

Since Tribba gave me a pouch of fairy dust, I see them on a regular basis. Sergy has decided to help me and I’m very appreciative. Derik and I encountered a bargle on our way back to Northend. These are the tiger/bear like creatures that live in the Wynnrar Woods and protect it. Up until I left Northend, I had only seen forest creatures like rabbits, chipmunks, deer, and within the city walls I would find rats, mice, horses, and the occasional bat.

Who do you look up too? Why?

My older brother Fredryk. He’s tough but gentle and always manages to look out for the little guy. He is always helping others and giving up his own things to help someone else. He is also the captain of our army and can swing a sword better than anyone else.

If you had one thing about yourself that you would want to change what would it be?

I wish I had more guts to speak my mind.

Who is your ultimate enemy? Why?

I don’t have any enemies, not really. I want to find the persons responsible for putting the enchantment on my city, and make sure the dragon queen and her knights don’t take over, but “enemy” is a strong word. I’ve never really had any conflicts with anyone worth declaring them an enemy over.

What should we expect from you in your coming book?

Charades will complete my story. I leave Northend for Evenir, the Holy City and finally meet up with the Great Mage and Ravengale, his apprentice. I rejoin with Tribba and lead a small army against Soren in Northend.


The Book

Catching Dragons ebook coverA reluctant hero, an enchanted kingdom, a crazed prince…

Out of the ashes of doubt, courage is born.

As Derik whisks Edgar away from Willowglen where he’d been championing the dwarves, he can’t help but wonder what has really happened to his kingdom since his departure. Tales of an attack from the sky and an army of black knights precede him, and nothing is as Edgar expects when he arrives back home in Northend. His city lies under an enchantment, and they need him to break it. Tasked with regaining his lost magick and armed with a pouch of fairy dust, Edgar is determined to do the right thing.

Will he find the courage to confront the man responsible for his father’s death or will he run away like the coward Derik believes him to be?

Book Review: Clover’s Destined Mate

DISCLAIMER: THIS BOOK REVIEW FEATURES A BOOK WITH ADULT CONTENT NOT SUITABLE FOR ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18. PLEASE BE ADVISED.

The Review

Clover was out for a run one day when a scream shattered her world. Now thrown into the path of the devil hunters, she might be forced to face her fear. She might finally become a werewolf if she likes it or not. Only time will tell.

Ash has been on the hunt for the missing kids for month with know lead. When his cousins die from an attack on their home, Ash finds himself the guardian of his nephew. He doesn’t have any clue how to take care of a kid but finds help in a sexy curvy lady named, Clover. Will he be able to save the day with so many distractions?

The third and final book in McKayla Schutt’s Denver Troubles series is action packed with lots of heated scenes. I couldn’t put the book down from the first page. She does a great job in showing Clover as an independent woman that has to concur her own fear. If she wants something bad enough will she do it is the question. The struggle of the two main characters leave you gasping for more as they find their way into the future. Mrs. Schutt wraps up the ending of the series and this book with a fine tooth comb. She leaves you still wanting more and hoping for another series featuring these sexy as sin werewolves.

Stars: 5 out of 5

Flipped, Flopped, and a New Path

Okay this year needs to slow down. It seems like every time I turn around it’s a new month. How am I supposed to get anything done with time going by so fast? Let alone finish my goals for each month. But, anyway enough whining around your probably wondering what I have been up too?

This last month I decided once again to change my writing schedule and release dates around. Next year I won’t have as many book series starting up like I originally planned. I decided to focus on the main ones and get those out along with a few minor projects in the mix.

What series will I be working on?

The main series I will start publishing in the new year will be my Demonic Embrace series. I still plan to release the prequel book, Path to Redemption sometime this late winter. Then I plan to work on this series for the next year and a half. Along with this project I will work on my Vortex Series. This series won’t get released till after I release the final chapter to my Dragon Ryder VIP Readers members. They get a new chapter each month so book 1 will come out after I release the last chapter to them. I am thinking book 1 should be out in 2021 by the latest. If it takes too long, I will release over one chapter at a time to my members.

Along with these projects I still plan to do my horror story collection and might throw in another short story collection from the world of Tarzinëa. This will depend a lot on my time management skills. I do know one thing I will release the stories together in book format next time around. Tales of Ferrês is taking far too long to get out, and it is pricey doing a cover for each individual story.

Last month I don’t remember if I told you I took part in Camp NaNoWriMo. My goal was supposed to be 20k, I ended up only around 5k. I really did a bad job this last month hitting my goals. The boys and their 2-year-old mood swings were a major obstacle. I had to figure out ways to write, and it wasn’t working all too well. I’m hoping to get back on track this next month. I have several projects I need to get done before the end of August and I hope I can get them done.

What are your goals for August? What kind of obstacles do you think you’ll face in getting them done? I know I have plenty that come to my mind just thinking about it. I hope everyone has a wonderful August. I’ll let you know what is new or accomplished next month.

Character Interview: Oswald the Ostentatious

It’s Sunday…which means tomorrow is Monday. Let me help you with your early Monday blues by showcasing this special character interview featuring Oswald from Catula by Debbie Manber Kupfer. Stop by and check it out. Who knows you might find an awesome book to purchase.

The Interview

Who are you and what makes you great?

My name is Oswald and I’m the Principle of the P.A.W.S. Institute of New York. I’m an animagus flamingo and am very fond of the color pink. I run the Institute with a firm but friendly hand. I also very much enjoy art and teach an art class at P.A.W.S. for those who are artistically inclined. I also enjoy interpretive dance and song in my flamingo form and have been told I have amazing range.

What is your sole purpose in life?

To act as shepherd and guide to the students and faculty of P.A.W.S.

What kind of adventures have you had that stay with you until this day?

It is a checkered past that led me to where I am today. Before settling at the New York Institute I traveled the globe visiting different international communities of shapeshifters. One of the most exciting was my time spent in the P.A.W.S. Institute of Kenya where I was honored to go on safari with the then head of the institute, Alhaadi. Alhaadi’s animagus is an elephant and I traveled on his back for part of the journey. I will never forget my time there and hope that someday I can visit again.

Do you have a love interest? If you do please tell us about him/her or why you don’t.

Yes, Geoffrey and I have been together for eight years. His raven form, so much more practical than my flamingo, helps keep me grounded. He is also an excellent listener. As the Principal at P.A.W.S. I spend much of my day listening to the problems of others. It is good to relax in the evening and share a bottle of fine wine with Geoffrey and unload the problems of the day.

Tell us about your journey you are on and how it has helped you grow as a person.

And as flamingo — don’t forget that! Seriously, even though I’m head of the institute I still learn something new every day. In particular during this last year we have taken in our first werewolf. Werewolves in New York have traditionally had a bad reputation as there is a well-known werewolf mafia that operates out of Brooklyn that have caused some terrible conflicts over the years. The werewolf at P.A.W.S. though, Jamie Barnes, appears to be an earnest young man who assures me that he only ever hunts vermin on the full moon. I believe therefore that Jamie is helping me overcome my previous prejudice against wolves.

What kind of creatures do you see on a daily basis?

Ah, well we have all sorts at P.A.W.S. Cats and birds aplenty along with a talented group of animagus foxes who have formed a rock band (Demonica and the Screaming Foxes). We also currently host a spider monkey who is fond of losing himself in the trees of Central Park and a magnificent peacock who is the most talented student in my art class.

Who do you look up too? Why?

I very much respect Jessamyn, my counterpart at the P.A.W.S. Institute of the Midwest. She is probably the most powerful magician of illusion in the world. She transforms her office daily into a different scene and I swear you can even smell the scent of the blossoms in her illusory meadows.

If you had one thing about yourself that you would want to change what would it be?

It is unwise mess with perfection, don’t you think?

Who is your ultimate enemy? Why?

The werewolf, Frederick, currently concerns me. He is gaining in power and I don’t fully understand his ultimate goal. I do understand that he is dangerous and volatile and that ultimately we all at P.A.W.S. will need to battle against him.

What should we expect from you in your coming book?

My book? I am but one of the players in COTULA. All the stones need to come together and I am thankful to do my part.

When you write your books do you go straight for pencil and paper or a computer? Why?

Computer because I cannot read my handwriting when I think that fast lol.

Book Review: If the Shoe Fits

Greetings everyone. Hope you are having a good day so far. I am happy to say I got an awesome short story to share with you today for my feature review. It is by one of my fellow author friends, Stephanie Ayers. The nice thing about this story is you can snatch it up for free so make sure to grab it while you can.

The Review

Cinderella is on her way to the ball. But, something goes wrong when her twin sister shows up and the story you knew goes dark. Will Cinderella get her Prince or will someone else walk away with her prize?

Stephanie Ayers takes this traditional story and twists it to something dark. I read along thinking it was just going to be another story of Cinderella falling in love and beating her horrible step sisters. But, she surprised me with the twist of having a twin sister. And this twin sister will stop at nothing to get what she is deserved. After only going a few paragraphs in I was sitting on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. I found this story very enjoyable for it being a fairytale gone array. Highly recommend this story to anyone that wants to read a horror twist to the Cinderella story that will leave you surprised with the twisted ending.

Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars


The Book

IF_THE_SHOE_FITSIt’s no longer a question of if the shoe fits. Now it’s a question of who deserves to wear it.

What if the story you’ve always heard was wrong? What if it held a very big secret? What if Cinderella didn’t get the crown because there is another to fill her shoe?

It’s after midnight, but the band plays on. A unicorn drawn carriage awaits to carry another Ella to the ball. Destiny if what you make or it… or is it?

Which foot will the shoe fit best?

Book Spotlight: Heir of Dragmoore

Today I am featuring a favorite author of mine and her book, Heir of Dragmoore. Not only is the book awesome check out the cover below. It just takes my breath away. Well anyway Jennifer Ann Schlag is sharing a special excerpt with us today. Hope you enjoy.

Excerpt

Kip glides out onto a rock sitting in the water close to shore. Talen stops right before the water hits her shoes. Stares out at the sea, at Kip, at the sun making the water shine. It overwhelms her to the point that she starts crying. She can sense that someone is coming. She turns and sees Remy searching through the sand.
“Kip, come and stay on the land.”
Remy sits down on the sand while holding some shells. Talen joins him.
“I don’t want to appear rude. I am thankful that you are looking out for me. So thank you.”
“That tale the woman told us about; the brother and sister, the shell necklaces. It got me thinking.”
“About what?”
“About us.”
Talen shivers. And it’s not from the cold sea air.
“It doesn’t matter. Let’s find Deegus and be on our way.” Remy heads for the establishments.
Kip runs over to Talen and kicks sand up at her face. He buries his face in the sand.
What is wrong?
“I think I’ve hurt the prince’s feelings. I don’t want to be seen as a bad person. Oh, how I can’t wait to be free of all this and live with the Masters.”
Kip shakes the sand off him. If you live with the Masters, will we still be friends?
“Of course. Why would that change?”
Because the Masters are dangerous people. My father told me about them. My mother warned me to stay away from them.
“But I am bringing you with me to the Veiled Haven. To show them that I can speak to you and then they must come back with me to Dragmoore.”
What for? Your father is free. The king is dying. The proof you wanted doesn’t matter anymore. You want to go to the Veiled Haven because you want to feel as if you belong somewhere. You have a loving father, friends, and you have the prince who clearly likes you. And you have me, Talen. Please let that be enough. Don’t go to the Veiled Haven. It changes people.
“I must go there at least once. If you feel like I am in danger at any point, you tell me and I will leave. I promise.”


The Book

H_eir-of-Dragmoore_ebProving her innocence will be the least of her problems
Talen plans to become a master trainer of animals and leave her farm life behind her. That is, until, her father is implicated in the death of a mother dragon and her infant.

Book Review: Vampire Breed

The suspense of this series is killing me. I haven’t gone several days without reading at least a few chapters a day. I’ve been neglecting my writing to read these books. I am obsessed. But, our book review series must continue on as should my own writing. In a few words I will tell you about this book and my thoughts on it too. I hope you are enjoying this book review series.

The Review

Kiera is imprisoned. She doesn’t know where she is being held. Or, if her friends are even alive. Potter promised to come to her rescue, but where is he. Now hooked on the red stuff Kiera is an addict at the mercy of her captives.

She is out of her mind not knowing what is the truth or a fabrication the addiction has caused. All she knows is that a strange lycanthrope comes to her each night in her cell. Is he friend or foe Kiera doesn’t know? Realizing freedom can only come at her own hands she devises a plan for escape. Does she make it? You must read to find out.

This book in the series really showcases the loss of one’s will when addiction takes hold. It shows the struggle and harm it brings. Then tells of how the fight to remain clean is a burden that can kill. Tim O’Rourke takes you on an emotional rollercoaster that keeps you turning the page. The darkness in the series really takes hold in this book and perp-ells the series forward.

Question I had while reading this book:

Where the hell is Potter?

What happened to Luke?

Who is behind this brutal treatment?

And, who is this wolf that stalks Kiera at night?

Ranking: 5 out of 5 stars!

More questions arise: Who is the secretive werewolf visiting her at night – and can she trust him? Where are her friends and why hasn’t Potter come to her rescue, as he promised? With no word from either Luke or Potter, she fears they both might be dead.

With only a chair and a book to comfort her in her cage, can Kiera escape? Even if she does, what will she find on the other side of her prison walls?

Excerpt

Finishing the braid, Niamh stared at herself in the mirror. She looked more like her mother every day. The freckles peppered across her nose hadn’t changed any in the last three years. Her hair had lightened some from all the time she’d spent out in the sun. It was closer to a fiery red than the crimson she had as a child. The rest of her body had filled out as she’d gotten older and taller.

She was now the same height as her mother had been; a solid five-foot-seven-inches.

That was where the similarities ended. Her legs, arms, and abdomen had more muscle than she ever recalled on her mother. Her father had been the one with all the muscle. It had been the physical labor he’d endured working in the pub. Not to mention the training he had gone through as a teenager.

It was the same training she’d received regularly over the last few years. Most days she spent at the cabin or at Ainsley’s desperately working to improve her physical prowess and control her powers. Nearly three years and she hardly felt as if she’d learned anything at all.

Probably a good thing she hadn’t found that black wolf yet.

She didn’t have to focus on that today. She had work at the pub this evening. Niamh inhaled a deep breath and eyed the reflection of the green t-shirt Rhea had elected for the employees to wear a couple of years ago. She hated it, but only because it made her emerald green eyes stand out more. If she could’ve changed her eye color, she would, except she didn’t want to distance herself from one of the few remaining links she had to her parents.

Niamh shook the thought from her head, grabbed her driver’s license off the dresser and tucked it into the back pocket of her jeans. She spun around on the ball of her boot and eyeballed the room. Even after all these years, she still hadn’t grown accustomed to the extravagance surrounding her most days. Di’Lacia, she couldn’t wait until she turned eighteen and could leave the house.

She extracted some cash from the top drawer of the antique nightstand beside her bed. She placed the cash in the back pocket of her jeans with her driver’s license and then snagged her purple helmet off the back of the door on her way out. She stepped into the hallway—

“Niamh, I was just coming to see ye,” Séamus said.

Shite. She hadn’t left fast enough. A good chunk of the time she usually escaped the house without crossing his path, but some days … there was no avoiding him. She plastered a smile to her mouth and turned around to face him. “I was just on ‘mai way to work. What can I do for ye?”

“I wanted to ensure ye made time for Briana this weekend. She’ll be here to work on your dress.”

“Dress?” She tilted her head to the side and pursed her lips. The question had popped out before she could stop it. If she had to be there for a fitting, it could only mean he was demanding her presence at some event he was hosting. This past year she’d been forced to play the part of his date on several occasions. Talk about a test of control.

“Dinnae tell me ye forgot about ‘mai birthday party next weekend.”

Sure she had. He was the furthest thing from her mind, unless it included getting away from him. Inwardly, she groaned. She hated dressing up and having to hang on his arm. It was like she was a prized fox he had to show off to his friends. Too bad she couldn’t say any of that to him. Instead, she had to pretend she was perfectly okay with it all and simply watch his aura carefully.

“Of course not. How could I forget?”

“That’s ‘mai good girl.” He caressed her cheek.

Niamh swallowed the bile that crawled up the back of her throat and her eyebrows pinched together. The sensation of his sausage fingers against her skin grossed her out. Never mind the disturbing idea of being his anything. His intentions had become quite clear over the last few months as the red in his aura intensified each passing day.

“I, uh, I need to go. Ye know how, uh, how Rhea hates tardiness.”

“Ye know how much I despise ye working there, especially with ye behind the bar now. All those men … I could send Rooney there to watch over ye.” Séamus stroked his chin.

Her eyes widened. Oh, hell no! She had already been subjected to living there in that house. She refused to let him take the little bit of freedom she had away.

“Ye know Rhea wouldn’t tolerate ‘em hanging out all evening. Plus, I’m capable of taking care of ‘mai self.”

Séamus brushed her cheek with the back of his hand. “While I’m sure ye can, I always protect what’s mine.”

Her nose wrinkled as she tensed and tightened the hold she had on her helmet. Don’t use your powers, she reminded herself. Yeah, he was a bad man, but he was still a normal. One she had to get away from, now. Slowly, Niamh stepped back.

“I have to go.”

As she turned away, he grabbed her wrist and squeezed. “Ye just remember who ye belong to.”

Niamh narrowed her eyes and grinded her jaw. There were other places she could go; she didn’t have to stay there. Screw her parents’ will. Screw the law. It might be the best thing for her if she told him right then and there she belonged to no man.

Except just past Séamus’s shoulder she caught a glimpse of the one and only reason she stayed: her brother. Quinlan paused outside his bedroom door, glanced in their direction and disappeared down the hallway away from them.

She hadn’t figured out yet what was wrong with him. And he was the only thing keeping her there. As soon as she knew what was wrong, she’d get them both out of that awful house. Niamh bit her tongue and returned her attention to Séamus. “I do. Now, I really do have to get to work.”

“All right, ye can go. We only have another year of this and then we make it all official.” He released his hold on her. With a wink, he walked off.

She shuddered at the thought of that man any closer to her than he had been. Not that she’d ever let him get that far. At least she knew his timeframe now. It just meant she had to figure out what was wrong with her brother and get them out of there—soon. Until then, she’d tolerate that disgusting, red-headed tool.

Wiping off the imprint Séamus left on her face, Niamh headed toward the front of the house and left.

Character Interview: Alabama Rain

Happy Friday everyone! Today I am featuring Alabama Rain from her book Alabama Rain. Lol, sounds like she is awesome if she gets her name on the cover. Well anyway today I am featuring her in a character interview. Who is the lucky author that wrote this awesome vampire book? That would be PNR author Lana Campbell. Stop by and check out this spectacular interview to see inside her main character.

The Interview

Who are you and what makes you great?

I’m Alabama Rain Holden and I’m an ex-drug dealer. Until a short while ago nothing made me great. I was forced by my feral vampire father to do despicable things and I hated myself and my life. Then I met a special person who showed me how to rise above my lot in life. He showed me unconditional love and taught me that God loves me unconditionally. Now what makes me great is the ability to forgive those who have hurt me and love them unconditionally through the power of God’s grace and love for me.

What kind of adventures have you had that stay with you till this day?

When I was a kid before my father lost his sanity and soul and my mother died, I had an amazing family. We traveled in an RV all over the country for my parents’ work. My father played in a band and got gigs in bars, casinos and farmers markets. My mother sold crystal jewelry at farmers markets and flea markets. My parents always managed to take time for me and my brother Gan. They homeschooled us and took us to hundreds of historical sites across the country. We learned history by viewing where it had happened, from battlefields to southern plantations, historical figures homes–you name it.

Do you have a love interest? If you do please tell us about him/her or why you don’t.

I do. His name is Nate Davenport. Like me, he’s a born vampire. His childhood was one of wealth and privilege filled with love too. He’s a Christian. A real one that lives the life and is loving and kind. There isn’t a judgmental bone in his body. He was able to see past the sick and twisted criminal life I led to the agony I felt for having to do it. He saw the true me and at the time, the wounded me. Instead of being disgusted by what I did to survive, he gave me help and hope for a future. He’s the best thing that ever happened to me and did I mention he’s gorgeous? I love him and I’m so happy he’s my life mate.

Tell us about your journey you are on and how it has helped you grow as a person.

I’m on a journey of self discovery. I lost twelve years of my youth living in darkness and fear because I was a drug dealer for my father. I missed out on college, dating, proms and all the things high school and college kids get to do. Now that I’m free and living a respectable life, I’m trying to see who I am as a person. I recently published my first novel, a parody of my life. It’s about a drug dealer and her brother, who also deals drugs, trying to get out of that life and find their happily ever after. The book is a best seller and I couldn’t be happier. My goal is to continue writing, while finding other talents to cultivate and nurture.

If you had one thing about yourself that you would want to change what would it be?

My past. I wish I could have been a normal girl that hadn’t had to fight to survive. I wish I could have taken ballet classes instead of martial arts that were necessary for me to learn to fend off thugs, drug dealers and scumbags. I wish I could have had a best friend growing up, but there was no room in my life for friends. I have one now though and that’s my life mate Nate. With his help I’m gaining back all the things I lost and I’m starting to put my past behind me.

Who is your ultimate enemy? Why?

I don’t have any enemies anymore. Once my ultimate enemy was my father. He had a mental disease called feralism, something vampires who lose their life mates are prone to suffering. He made my life a living hell during the dark years of his sickness. I hated him, yet I loved him and wanted him to love me back. He couldn’t because he existed in a place of darkness so smothering it destroyed his ability to tell right from wrong. His crimes and sins finally caught up with him, though. He was arrested by a vampire tribunal and was facing a death sentence which caused him to have a revelation about the man he’d become. It was God who propagated that revelation for my father and he repented of his horrible crimes and all the vicious, insufferable things he did to me. He begged me to forgive him and I did. Today I have a wonderful, loving father who is no longer my enemy, but a man I can love and respect because he now walks with God.

What should we expect from you in your coming book?

Alabama Rain is an emotional roller coaster ride and I cried writing it more than any book I’ve ever written. Alabama’s father, Ken Holden was absolutely the most sick and twisted villain I’ve ever created. He murdered people, raped young girls, peddled copious amounts of drugs, did them himself and turned teen humans and vampires into drug dealers and addicts. An awful person he was until God opened his eyes to the vile, disgusting creature he’d been. In Alabama Rain, Ken gets saved and does everything in his power to make up for his evil. I felt Ken needed his own story that occurs after being imprisoned by a vampire tribunal for all his heinous crimes. My next book is Ken’s journey to forgive himself, which doesn’t come easy. He has some help, though. Lovely Eden McCallister, a vampire psychologist who deals with feral vampires, helps him see there can be life after being a feral vampire and forgiving oneself doesn’t mean discounting or forgetting the terrible things Ken did to other people.


The Book

Lana Campbell Alabama Rain for printAlabama Rain Holden’s life is a dreadful and dangerous one as a thief of drugs for her father, drug lord Ken Holden. Rain hates her life, but she’s damned good at what she does. As a vampire with an acute sense of smell, she can sniff out any drug as well as a blood hound, enchant the human mule with the goods to be sold and relieve him or her of the product without the person never remembering the encounter.

One night her drug thievery takes her to Davenport Tower, an opulent forty eight stories of luxury condos owned by the handsome, vampire billionaire, Nate Davenport. Rain’s job that evening is to locate the sellers carrying seventy-five pounds of Columbian weed, steal it and return the goods to her father. Unfortunately, the heist going down in Davenport Tower’s parking garage is interrupted by none other than Nate Davenport himself.

Nate is incensed when he discovers Rain is a drug dealer operating on his turf. He embarks on a mission to catch her committing a crime so he can bring her before a vampire tribunal where she will pay for her crimes with her life. In his efforts to get the evidence Nate needs against Rain, he instead gets information he never bargained for. Once he learns her dark secret, that she’s been brutally forced into this life of crime by her maniacal father, Nate will stop at nothing to liberate her from her feral vampire father.

To survive in a world she hates, Rain adopts a bad ass persona. It doesn’t take Nate long to see the real Alabama Rain’s heart. She’s brave and fearless, kind and compassionate. She even puts her life on the line to save twelve young girls her father has turned into vampire drug dealers. Nate falls for her and hard. But Rain’s seedy, violent world may just cost him his life when Rain’s father discovers Rain and Nate have fallen in love.

Author Interview: Jennifer Ann Schlag

It’s Thursday! The middle of the week is gone and I got another awesome featured today. I am featuring a good friend of mine from New York. Hope you will stop in and check out Jennifer Ann Sclag in her author interview.

The Interview

Tell us a little bit about yourself?

I am from New York and, although it can be a rough place to live, I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Growing up around books and movies, I easily fell in love with storytelling from an early age. I wrote short stories throughout my childhood but wrote my first professional screenplay in 2002 (Goval: Parallel Destiny). After abandoning writing for a few years, I picked it back up and wrote the novel version to that screenplay, and that is when aspiring filmmaker became aspiring author. I am seriously addicted to YouTube and Netflix. It is often a distraction for my writing time. Sometimes people ask where I come up with my story ideas and I simply say I find inspiration from everything around me. Life is inspiration.

What genre do you write in? Why?

Dark fantasy/fantasy. Although I grew up watching sci-fi movies, fantasy movies have always been my favorite. Fantasy has a way of making you forget reality for a while, and we all need that. It transports you into another world and, for a moment, you believe in magic and that the impossible is possible.

What inspired you to become an author?

Watching movies and reading books. From there the passion for reading grew and the desire to write stories blossomed.

Tell us about your latest release?

Many who have travelled into the Veiled Haven have never returned, and those that do are forever changed. When opportunity arises for Talen to venture there with a spoiled prince, secrets are revealed about both of them which will change their position in life and what they mean to each other.

How did you come up with the story within your book? What inspired your creativity?

I saw a friend’s premade book cover for sale with a woman and dragon on the cover and instantly the story came to me.

Tell us about your main character in your book. What makes them unique?

Talen is a young woman who could always talk to animals, but mastering a talent such as talking to every animal in the world, even the sacred ones, is a skill only the Masters of the Veiled Haven can acquire. She often gets herself in trouble but manages to find a way out of it barely scarred or bruised.

Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years as a writer?

Writing more books. Hopefully very successful before those 5 years.

Who is your biggest support system in your life?

My facebook author friends.

Who are your top three favorite authors?

Stephen King, Jordan Frost, and Shakespeare.

What is the one thing you want to say to your readers?

Always keep a foot in the past, your heart in the present, and your mind in the future.

Excerpt

The howling wind pierced Niamh’s ears as she lie sprawled out on the ground. Her fire-red hair whipped all around her face. As she snapped back into consciousness, she groaned and slowly rolled to her side. She reached up to the corner of her mouth and wiped at the blood trickling down her chin and then lifted her gaze to the noise no more than ten feet away. She blinked at the sight before her.
Not far from where she laid two men battled one another. Neither of her blades could cut the aggression given off by the two of them. To make matters worse, her brother appeared to be winning.
A dark flare shone brightly in his once green eyes as his opponent’s blade pierced just beneath his collarbone on the right side. He laughed … with no gusto, no heart. There was nothing that reflected amusement in his laugh. It was closer to the cackle of a hyena than anything else. Blood began to soak through his clean white pressed cotton shirt. In a gruff voice, he yelled, “Is that the best ye can do?”
Her brother’s fist connected with his opponent’s broad chin. Despite their height and weight difference, the tank of a guy, Jarrett, stumbled back a few steps and his sienna brown hair fell out of place.
There had to be something she could do. She had power. She knew how to wield it. This was the fight that would alter her future forever. Getting to her feet, Niamh focused on collecting a shockwave in her hands. She had to time the release perfectly; otherwise she chanced harming the wrong person.
Her brother’s lips curled fiercely into a deep grin as he yanked the blade from his shoulder. No sound escaped his mouth. A breath of air could hardly be noticed as he removed the twelve-inch, double-edged dagger from his body. It seemed to cause him no pain or perhaps he merely reveled in it. Taking advantage of the tank’s stumbling he stepped forward with a full grip on the hilt of the blade and swiped at him.
Jarrett jerked his face back and barely avoided getting cut with his own blade. The swipe missed by less than an inch.
Her brother was shorter than the tank. He found the momentum needed to gather his footing and spun around, striking her brother with an elbow jab to the throat.
She needed more time. This shockwave had to be the most powerful she had ever dispersed. Niamh watched on as the fight progressed and continued to focus the gathering ball of energy through her entire body.
Her brother used the force of the tank’s steps and shoved the double-edged dagger with full strength into the back of his shoulder. He cackled with glee as his opponent cried out from the pain. “Come on! Ye were supposed to be this high an’ mighty warrior! I thought this would be a challenge!”
Backing away, a wrinkle settled upon the bridge of his nose and beads of sweat formed on his brow. Gritting his teeth, he placed his hand on the hilt and yanked the blade from his shoulder. He threw his head back and howled, then faltered and fell to his knees.
“No!” Niamh screamed.
He couldn’t die! The agony in his outcry provided her the necessary strength to charge the strongest force of shockwave she’d ever managed. A blue current crackled all over her body. Her normal emerald green irises changed to a deep aqua blue.
She was ready.
It was time to end this.
Her brother’s eyes twitched. With a Cheshire grin he planted his feet firmly against the ground. He shook his arms out, then went completely rigid. His eyes were the same shade of green as hers. At least they had been. Midnight black replaced the once emerald green that filled his eyes.
Niamh unleashed the full weight of the shockwave that had consumed her entire body. Blue electricity shot out from her arms, her legs, her fingers. The shockwave surged from every part of her toward her brother.
The energy pushed him back and tore at his skin, but it didn’t knock him down. Hardly any skin ripped open. Wait … no, it was healing, repairing itself before her very eyes! It hadn’t been strong enough. It hadn’t been the right call. The right power. The one she needed to defeat him once and for all.
Her brother lunged at her and wrapped his gangly hand tightly around her neck. Lifting her off the ground, he grinned. “See, I was just going to kill ye, but now I get to kill both o’ye.”
The air to her lungs constricted.
“Ye … don’t … want … to … do … this,” she managed to muster out between tiny breaths.
Tightening his hold around her neck, he pulled her face closer to his. He locked his gaze with her green eyes. “Súil na Éireannach.”
The grin on his lips broadened as his other hand reached out and stroked her sultry red hair. His grip tightened again. Color drained from her face as she struggled to breathe.
This wasn’t how it was supposed to end.
She was the one who was supposed to be victorious.
She was supposed to save them all.
“Killin’ ye first an’ making ‘em watch will be my pleasure.”
Slowly Jarrett stood. Jumping into action, he ran toward them like a bull charging its handler. “Niamh!”

Abruptly Niamh sat up gasping for air. Wiping the beads of sweat from her brow, she looked around. She half expected to find her brother hovering over her with his hands wrapped tightly around her neck. That wasn’t the case.
She was at home, in her room. There was no movement from the Horslips or the Phil Lynott posters that hung on the wall. Both her dresser and desk were completely still. Not even the sound of wind could be heard bustling against her bedroom window. There was no movement from her closet; her clothes hung just as she had left them.
