Friday News and Reviews

News, well…There’s not much news to report. I’ve been working on revising a novel for release, I hope in another month, but we shall see. Also, as you can see, I’ve had lots of fun hosting guests. I hope you haven’t missed any of them. In the meantime,  another review popped up for Changeling’s Crown:

“Changeling’s Crown by Juli D. Revezzo is a delightfully light fantasy romance filled with humor, an endearing heroine and a darkly fascinating hero….Fun, fast, filled with light humor, a taste of darkness and just the right touch of magic, kind of makes you forget that Ianthe DID have a job to do!”~ Di, Tome Tender

Thank you, Di! I’m pleased you enjoyed CHANGELING’S CROWN.

CHANGELINGS CROWNWhen Ianthe began her career as a faery godmother, she stumbled so badly that Snow White will probably never speak to her again.

After a long suspension, she’s finally been given a chance to redeem herself…but everything on this latest assignment is going wrong.

But why?

Worse, she definitely doesn’t need an attractive mortal man distracting her from her duties. Of course, needs and wants are two different things.

Briak has had his eye on Ianthe for a very, very long time, but he’s been waiting for just the right moment to make his move.

Despite the fact all hell’s about to break loose on his watch, he can’t resist the opportunity to insert himself into her earthly assignment. Can he convince Ianthe of her true calling and thereby win her heart? Or will his subterfuge ultimately cost him her love?

Available at: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and in paperback. The ebook is a l’il ole $.99. Enjoy and have a great weekend.

Stifled Final 2 PSDDimitri would like nothing more than to live a low-key life in Naples, Italy. His girlfriend, Syd, has other plans.

After three months of researching, she is positive she has found a jinn on a killing spree in San Diego, California. Since Syd gave Dimitri the one thing he thought was out of reach, he feels obligated to use his ill-gained talents for her cause.

A few hours back in the US proves that Dimitri and Syd didn’t quite make the clean escape they had thought. As they trail the elusive jinn, someone else trails them. What should have been a simple trip to confirm once and for all if the jinn are living among humans, instead reveals a community keeping dark secrets.

Unfortunately for Dim, the only way out is in.

Get your copy here!

Haven’t read book one yet? No problem! It’s currently FREE on Amazon.

summoned_cover_final_biggerTwenty-three year old Dimitri has to do what he is told—literally.

Controlled by a paranormal bond, he is forced to use his wits to fulfill unlimited deadly wishes made by multimillionaire Karl Walker.

Dimitri has no idea how his family line became trapped in the genie bond. He just knows resisting has never ended well.

When he meets Syd—assertive, sexy, intelligent Syd—he becomes determined to make her his own. Except Karl has ensured Dimitri can’t tell anyone about the bond, and Syd isn’t the type to tolerate secrets.

Then Karl starts sending him away on back-to-back wishes. Unable to balance love and lies, Dimitri sets out to uncover Karl’s ultimate plan and put it to an end. But doing so forces him to confront the one wish he never saw coming—the wish that will destroy him.

Drat these Faery Godmother rules!–Sneak Peek Sunday #SPeekSunday

Sneak Peek Sunday Banner Here’s another entry for Sneak Peek Sunday. A little set up, faery godmother Ianthe has no time left to whip up a little something for a party–and the electricity has gone out. Yet, by royal command, she’s restricted from using her faery magic “for anything mundane”. She has a lot on her plate, and her mind,  so could it hurt to bend the rules a little? No one will know….Let’s see what happens. CHANGELINGS CROWN_700

[Ianthe] peered out the window and snapped the curtain shut so none of her human neighbors could see her at work. She tapped the stove’s front burner. The burner turned red as it heated. The milk in the pot simmered away. Now, what to do about Randall and Mallory?

And what about Briak? He shouldn’t’ve worried about me. That he’d calmed [her] runaway horse himself was nice, but why on earth didn’t he let Mallory drive her back to the office? She didn’t need such a handsome distraction right now. Especially a human one…

“What are you doing?” Geldon’s voice brought her up short and Ianthe screamed and spun toward the speaker.

Her heart pounded in her chest and she leaned against the counter, glaring at him. “What am I doing? What are you doing, you arrogant, son of a goblin?”

He laid a hand to his breast, his eyes wide and innocent. She knew better. “Me?” he said. “I just wondered when dinner would be ready.”

“Or if you could scare the life out of me?”

Geldon ignored the question, brushing dust from his gaudy gold silk vest. “You, on the other hand.” He narrowed his eyes at the pot. Ianthe stepped in front of it, shielding its contents from his filthy snort. He leaned sideways, trying again for a peek. “You’re breaking rules all over the place, aren’t you?”

Busted!! Poor Ianthe. Would you like to know more about her–and this human fella by whom she’s so distracted?

Synopsis:

When Ianthe began her career as a faery godmother, she stumbled so badly that Snow White will probably never speak to her again. After a long suspension, she’s finally been given a chance to redeem herself…but everything on this latest assignment is going wrong.

But why?

Worse, she definitely doesn’t need an attractive mortal man distracting her from her duties. Of course, needs and wants are two different things.

Briak has had his eye on Ianthe for a very, very long time, but he’s been waiting for just the right moment to make his move. Despite the fact all hell’s about to break loose on his watch, he can’t resist the opportunity to insert himself into her earthly assignment. Can he convince Ianthe of her true calling and thereby win her heart? Or will his subterfuge ultimately cost him her love?

If you’d like to check it out, CHANGELING’S CROWN is on sale at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords. and in paperback from Createspace.

Review: Queen of the Hill by Genevieve Jack

As promised, here is my review of QUEEN OF THE HILL by Genevieve Jack.

QUEEN OF THE HILL

by Genevieve Jack

*Review copy given to me by Ms. Jack and Bewitching Book Tours.

Queen of the Hill, by Genevieve Jack, Paranormal romance, Knight Games seriesIn Genevieve Jack’s, QUEEN OF THE HILL, Grateful Knight has finally earned a little downtime, since her last battle with the vampire queen Bathory. Her own knight, Caretaker, Rick, has proposed and Grateful is gleefully (or not) planning her wedding. You’d think that would be enough stress for any gal, but then she and Rick receive a call about a murder at their friend’s business. And he’s gone missing. There’s evidence of another in his room, but the cops can’t pinpoint the third party. Nor does Grateful feel she can trust his second in command…. Continue reading

Genevieve Jack–Mother May I tour and giveaway

 I am pleased, today, to have paranormal romance author Genevieve Jack with us. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed her previous novel, QUEEN OF THE HILL, and am looking forward to Mother May I. I was lucky to be able to corner the Queen of the Hill herself for a little interview. I hope you will enjoy it. I hope to have a review of QUEEN OF THE HILL up for your reading pleasure soon, as well as a little bit more about the series itself.  For now, here’s a bit about Genevieve’s forthcoming novel, MOTHER MAY I. Genevieve Jack Mother May I Blog Tour   Grateful, and Genevieve, thank you both for joining us today. Make yourselves at home. Now then, Grateful, I must say you intrigue me.  The whole business of being a witch and a Hecate seems both thrilling, and a little overwhelming! What can you tell our readers who may not understand what goes into being a Hecate?

Grateful Knight: A Hecate is a type of witch, also called a sorceress of the dead. My job is to police the supernatural element in my ward. All Hecates are women: half goddess, half human. We draw our power from the dead, so you usually find us living near a cemetery. Interference with humans by supernatural beings without consent is strictly forbidden and could land the perpetrator in the local hellmouth via my judgment. I also sort the rare human soul who becomes trapped for some reason as a ghost in the earthly plane. It happens sometimes if a person’s soul has unfinished business or has lived a life equal parts good and evil.

What does being a caretaker entail, if you can speak for Rick? How does one become one?

Grateful Knight: When a Hecate comes into her power, she is immortal. Most witches will chose to stay immortal, but not me. I fell in love. Real love. I loved someone so much that I gave him my immortality. If you think of immortality as a thing, like a glowing red heart, I put that heart inside of my caretaker. That spell made him immortal, but it also bound him to me. It is my immortality inside of him. He is the vessel of my eternal soul. As long as we are together and I partake of his blood, I’m immortal too. But I can be killed. Have been killed. When that happens, I am reincarnated. Once I’m old enough, it’s my caretaker’s job to find me and to give me my power back by reconnecting me to the part of my soul he keeps for me.

Grateful, if you’ve known Rick so long, why hasn’t he taught you any Spanish?

Grateful Knight: He probably did in a previous life, but I’ve only known him a short time in this life. Between trying to survive the latest supernatural attack and working as a nurse in the local hospital, I haven’t had much time for Spanish lessons. Besides, Rick has lived in New Hampshire for centuries. He barely has an accent anymore and rarely speaks Spanish unless he is reminiscing or feeling emotional.

I see. Are there any particular supernatural creatures you haven’t encountered in your world that you’d like to meet?

Grateful Knight: It would be cool to meet an angel, but I’ve been told heavenly creatures and earthly supernaturals like me usually don’t mix.

That’s too bad. It might help to have one on your side from time to time. And for a silly one, in light of your wedding preparations, what’s your favorite kind of cake? ;) Genevieve, you can answer that one too, if you’d like.

Grateful: My favorite cake is devil’s food with chocolate icing. Dark chocolate icing. A multitier wedding cake with red roses on alternating layers would be gorgeous. Maybe his and hers sugar skulls on top. Rick would love that.

Jack: I like angel food with whipped cream and strawberries. Hold the sugar skulls. Both sound heavenly! You gals are making me hungry. ;)

Genevieve, I’m very excited to have you and Grateful with us today. Thanks so much for your time. I’ve enjoyed QUEEN OF THE HILL and look forward to your new  release, MOTHER MAY I.  Can you give us a hint (spoiler free, or not, as you please) as to what Grateful and Rick might be facing next?

Genevieve Jack: In Mother May I, Grateful has to stand up to her goddess mother in hopes of finding a spell that will restore Rick from the damage Tabetha caused. A new supernatural threat wants Grateful dead, and she becomes increasingly convinced that her mother is behind the attacks. Grateful must build alliances with other supernatural creatures in order to stay alive while she goes about executing a spell that could save both her and Rick, while setting things right with the goddess.

Sounds thrilling! I can’t wait to get to it. Readers, here’s a little more to tempt you about MOTHER MAY I.

Book Description:

Grateful Knight is one stressed out witch. Not only has she failed to restore her caretaker, Rick, from an evil witch’s mind-control spell, but the loss he endured extends well beyond his memory. To make matters worse, compensating for his absence could cost her the job she loves and the strength she needs. When a new supernatural threat leaves Grateful for dead, a vampire ally saves her life but at a price. Her assailant’s calling card makes it clear she’s marked for death, possibly by her goddess mother. With the help of her half-sister Polina, can Grateful gain the power she needs to win Rick back and beat the goddess at her own game?
