Blog Tour: Into Darkness (Night Prowler #6) by J.T. Geissinger






In New Vienna, capital of the oppressive global government formed after the Flash, three things are certain: the sun is poisonous, speaking out is dangerous, and being different will get you killed.

And Lumina Bohn is extraordinarily different.

Living in terror of discovery, Lu knows nothing of her past—but she knows she must pretend to be human to survive. When an incident at work triggers her astonishing powers, she becomes the target of an international manhunt. Only one person can save her: Magnus, the enigmatic stranger haunting her dreams.

Magnus rescues the outcasts called Aberrants from capture and torture. As Lu begins exploring her powers among her people, her feelings for Magnus intensify. He’s determined to stay emotionally distant, yet their smoldering passion soon becomes impossible to resist.

But when a shocking revelation threatens the lives of every remaining Aberrant, Lu and Magnus must risk everything, confronting their enemies in an explosive final stand to save their kind from the darkest fate of all: extinction.




They broke through the tree line and the road was there, two lanes of cracked asphalt just beyond a shallow ditch choked with brambles and weeds. On the other side of the road, a deer stood frozen—nose twitching, ears pricked forward, black eyes shining in terror. A second passed, then she bounded off into the woods, her tail a flash of white against the darkness.

“Oh,” breathed Lu, amazed, watching it go. “I’ve never seen one of those before. Only in books.”

Magnus had grown up in the Amazon. He’d seen every kind of bird and reptile and mammal—had, in fact, eaten all of them—and couldn’t imagine growing up as she had, confined to a city with no access to the natural world. She was an animal, as were they all, and she needed animal outlets.

He was arrested by that thought. She’d said she’d never had a chance to practice her Gifts, spending all her energy on trying to be “normal,” and had only just yesterday Shifted for the first time . . .

“Do you know what the Ikati actually are, Lumina?”

She didn’t turn to look at him, and really, could he blame her? He knew he’d been acting on the far side of sullen and testy, but keeping her at a safe arm’s length had become of paramount importance to him. After that kiss, after everything that itched and throbbed between them, after the revelation about his own, imminent, demise . . . Magnus was taking no chances.

He was going to die. Soon. He couldn’t—wouldn’t—be so selfish as to take what he wanted from her, which was much, much more than just another kiss.

“What do you mean?” Her brows pulled together in confusion.

“You, Honor, and your mother are the only living Ikati who can Shift to something else than our original form . . . you know that, right?”

Now she did look at him, and that familiar snap of connection made his blood sizzle in his veins.

“Original form?”

He couldn’t help it. His own hand betrayed him. Before he could think, he reached out and lightly touched a lock of her hair. It was like silk between his fingers. When he spoke again, his voice was husky. “This body is a clever disguise. We learned to look human millennia ago as a survival mechanism, but this isn’t what we are.”

Her hand lifted, then stilled in the air, just inches from his, as if she’d been about to touch him but stopped herself. “What are we then? Will you show me?”

Her voice was lowered to match his own, the softest throaty purr, and it was all he could do not to take her into his arms and give in to all the wild thrashing inside him, the burning and the need. Instead, he only gave a curt, wordless nod, dropped his hand and turned away.

Cover Reveal: Riding it Out by Jennifer Foor




One woman

One man

An empty bed and breakfast

A summer storm

One night they'll never forget - so they thought...

When my aunt passed away and left me her dilapidated bed and breakfast it was all so surreal. I hadn't been back to that beach in many years, and the idea of revisiting left me sad and vulnerable.

I never planned on having guests. In fact, I just wanted to close up the place and sell it, so that I could move on with my life.

Then the storm happened.

Taken by surprise, I planned on waiting for it to pass. The house creaked and the power went out. That's when someone knocked on the door.

He was a stranger, dripping wet, cold, and looking for shelter. I couldn't turn him away...

What happened next between us opened new doors, changing everything I thought I wanted for myself.

The only question is if I can trust him, or will his secrets destroy it all?

Release Day Launch: Wreck Me (Nova #4) by Jessica Sorensen





Title: Wreck Me
Series: Nova #4
Author: Jessica Sorensen
Genre: New Adult
Hosted by: Shh Mom's Reading



When Avery Hensley met Conner Wellings, she thought she’d found the guy she was going to spend the rest of her life with. She got married young and had the most beautiful son in the world.

Life seemed perfect.

But not everything is what it seems.

Turned out Conner had another side to him, a darker side that Avery didn’t see coming. He wrecked and broke her into a thousand pieces, leaving Avery to put herself back together. From then on, Avery vows never to let a man into her life again.

But then she meets Tristan Morganson. He’s sweet and sexy and wrecks Avery in a different way than Conner did, the kind of way that makes her feel alive again, the kind of way that makes her think maybe not all guys are bad. But can Avery trust him enough to let her walls come crumbling down?




As if I’ve lost my mind, I wet my lips with my tongue, a move I haven’t done in years. A slow smile curves at his lips.

“You did that on purpose,” he murmurs while eyeing my mouth and moistening his lips with his tongue.

“No I didn’t.” I suck my bottom lip into my mouth.

What the hell am I doing?

Stop leaning in Avery.

But we move like magnets. He leans in a little. I lean in a little. Me. Him. Me. Him. There’s hardly any space left between us. I can feel the warmth of his breath. Smell the delicious scent of his cologne. He’s still holding the cigarette and smoke circles around us mixing with the intensity of the moment. Am I going to do this? Let my wall down for another guy?

No.

Yes.

No.

I never fully get to make the decision because Tristan eliminates the last of the space between us and our lips collide.














The New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Jessica Sorensen, lives in the snowy mountains of Wyoming. When she's not writing, she spends her time reading and hanging out with her family.

Blog Tour: Second Opinion by Lisa Suzanne



















What do you do when the person you love most in the world breaks your heart… twice? Grant’s solution is avoiding relationships. Four years since the last time he saw Rachelle, his heart still can’t take another break.

“You’re not marriage material.” From the time he’d first heard those words spoken by the woman he loved, Grant Carpenter believed them.

When a woman he’s known for years shows an interest in him, he starts to question Rachelle’s words about marriage material, wondering if he might need a second opinion. Someone in the present, someone who has always been in the periphery but who he never gave a second glance, starts to take over his every thought.

Grant is armed with plenty of reasons to ignore what he’s feeling, but someone who should remain off-limits is suddenly overshadowing his obsession with his past. She’s making him want a future that he thought he’d written off, but he isn’t sure that she wants a future with him.

Ultimately, he has to decide what to do when the past makes her way back into his present.






As her eyes darted up to meet mine from across the room, I suddenly wondered if she’d be interested in the way I did things. She seemed like the kind of girl who liked having fun.

I couldn’t help but think maybe it would be worth a shot. I grinned at her and raised one eyebrow in her direction. Her lips stretched into a smile, and the random thought of her lips on my body—anywhere—raced through my mind. I glanced away first. It was a habit, a way to hook them in and leave them wanting more. But even as I did it, I knew it was wrong.

She made her way over to me.

“I have a question for you, Mr. Carpenter.”

“What can I do for you, Bridesmaid Number One?”

“I have a name.”

“I know. It’s easier for me to remember that you stand next to the Matron of Honor if I call you BNO.”

“BNO?”

“Bridesmaid Number One.” I said it as if the answer was obvious.

She rolled her gorgeous brown eyes at me. They were mischievous and sexy at the same time.

I threw my hands up in mock confusion. “So what was your question?”

“Are you planning the bachelor party?”

“Isn’t that the best man’s job?”

She nodded. “Yes. Could we exchange numbers so we can figure out details? Quinn wants to have her bachelorette party the same weekend.”

It wasn’t a bad idea to get this girl’s number anyway. I was sure I’d find a way to use that to my advantage. I tried reminding myself it was a bad idea to hook up with her, but I just couldn’t remember why it was a bad idea. We exchanged numbers, and I saved her contact as “Avery Peterson.”

“So you do know my name.”

“Like I could forget it. I’ve known you a long time, Avery.” I knew I was flirting myself right into dangerous territory, but the beer I’d consumed took away my ability to care.

“Well, Grant,” she said, lowering her voice so only I could hear. “I’m glad you know it.”

“Oh yeah?” I raised my eyebrows and automatically found myself leaning in toward her.

“Yeah. That way you’ll know what name to yell out once I finally get my shot with you.”

She laughed and winked at me before she turned and walked away, leaving me an awkward shithead rendered idiotically wordless. I’m pretty sure my mouth hung open in surprise as I stood there, rolling her words over in my mind.

Was she joking?

She had to be joking.

Of course she was joking.

This was Avery, not some random girl I was going to hook up with.
