BOOK COVERS & RELEASE DATES

Exhale is Dakota Harrison's debut release with Samhain, coming out 30th July, 2013.


She is the one dream that never had a chance to come true…until now.
Takeshi is finishing up a brutal double shift in the ER when a familiar—and bloody—face erases all thought of heading home. The broken body of the woman fighting for her life belongs to Gabby, his best friend’s mother. A woman he has barely seen since he turned nineteen, when he foolishly declared his love for her.
She’s not dying today. Not on his watch. And not with a promise left unfulfilled.
Gabby has never forgotten the taste of the kiss Taka gave her under the mistletoe all those years ago. Or the silly promise that surely by now he’s forgotten. She’s wrong. Taka remembers. And she melts as he uses every trick in his highly trained surgeon’s hands to heal her—and rekindle the heat between them.
But there’s a secret lurking in Gabby’s past. And when it follows her all the way to Seattle, it threatens to drag the one man she loves into the nightmare she thought she’d left behind.


Betrayed, the third book set in Christina Phillips's Roman/Druid world, will be released from Ellora's Cave on 20th March, 2013. Details of her blog tour are below.

In 51 A.D., Druid priestess Nimue is injured and enslaved by the hated Roman Legions. Even though she is drawn to her captor, she’s determined to escape and complete her mission for the Briton king and her duty to Arianrhod, the goddess she is bound to.
The tough Roman warrior who captures her is far from the brutal barbarian she expects. His touch inflames her desires and passion burns between them. Though Nimue does not accept her enslavement, her heart surrenders to her enemy. When Arianrhod appears to her in the form of an owl, Nimue knows the union is blessed.
Roman warrior Tacitus is enchanted by the fiery beauty who shows no fear and challenges him at every turn. Though enslaving her goes against his heart, he’s determined to make her his. No woman has ever heated his blood as she does. But when he discovers her true nature as one who actually communes with the gods, his loyalties are torn between his heritage and a woman who could destroy everything he’s ever believed in.


Mel Teshco just received her new cover for Enraptured, her Ellora's Cave contemporary romance. No release date yet.



Peta Crake's first release, Harbinger (which was released in e-book format last year), will be available in print in all Australian Post Offices as of March 19th for a limited time of 12 weeks!

As an Olympic messenger, suburban Aussie girl Ophelia Lind is used to being at the beck and call of the gods. But when gorgeous demigod Aden moves into her neighbourhood and starts taking advantage of her services, Ophelia believes life could not get any worse. She's about to be proven very wrong.
Ophelia tries to enjoy a normal, everyday life while running messages for the Greek gods – but without warning an odious creature - evil incarnate - begins to stalk her. As a messenger dealing with the all-powerful and sometimes frightening gods, Ophelia is accustomed to adventures and scrapes. But this is different. Even Aden, who is madly and deeply in love with Ophelia, finds it difficult to protect her. Suddenly Ophelia is in a battle for survival and begins to question everything – her upbringing, her identity, and her true feelings for the alluring and entirely frustrating Aden.




REVIEWS

Bec McMaster's Heart of Iron (Sourcebooks, May 2013) received a Top Pick review from RT Magazine this month!
"McMaster's second London Steampunk book dazzles and seduces, diving deeper into this remarkable world. She crafts complicated, damaged and driven characters whose unlikely passion is unforgettably powerful. Details are slowly explained, and the complexities of all the relationships are gradually teased out, building a mounting tension that will leave readers breathless. Though new readers will be enthralled, devotees will find enormous rewards."




Redemption by Erica Hayes received an A-rated review from The Scarf Princess over at Words of Wisdom.
"Hayes' world building is unique and vivid with its dark and gritty city full of a dangerous cast of various demons all partying their way to the Apocalypse.  The action scenes are numerous and heart-pounding with much blood being shed ... (and this story) ... has me greatly anticipating the next book in this series."






Mel Teshco has received a 4 stars review for Galactic Flame from Amy Hopkins of The Romance Review.
"I really enjoyed this book...I'm sure that it won't be long until I go back and read the first two books just because this is a really intriguing world that I want to read more of. Eden and Genesis have a great spark of chemistry which makes it really fun reading as Eden finally gets to explore her sexuality. The author also did a really good job balancing the desire for details of this new world and it's inhabitants while still keeping the story moving."
Full review here. 



Angie from Twinsietalk gave 5 stars to Kylie Scott's Colonist's Wife.
"One of my favorite writing aspects of Kylie is her humor. She always has snarky sarcastic humor is all her novels. Her females are strong and soft. Her males are Alpha and understanding. In my opinion, and this is my blog so you are gonna hear it, she writes the perfect characters."
