 BOOK COVERS & RELEASE DATES

Cheryse Durrant's urban fantasy, The Blood She Betrayed (Bk#1 Heart Hunters series), is out October 10th, 2013 from Clan Destine Press.

To save her kingdom, she must betray her blood…
Thrust into the technology-driven Earthlands via magical mists, Shahkara is forced to rely on Max McCalden to help find the ancient Elnara death lantern, her homeworld’s last chance of survival against the heart-devouring Taloners.
Max has his own problems – a manipulative billionaire father, a murdered brother – but nothing prepares him for this fugitive warrior’s razor-sharp talons and magical abilities.
Shahkara’s half-Taloner blood demands what she knows she can’t have – a human heart. She longs for love, but as deadly enemies attack at every turn, will her lust for Max destroy them both? Or will she find the strength to free both worlds from a threat more horrific than the demons that share her blood?

The e-book will be available soon from Clan Destine Press, Amazon, iTunes and Kobo. To sample the first 12 chapters for free, click here.


Imogene Nix's contemporary romance, A Bar In Paris, releases from Beachwalk Press on 18th November, 2013.

Turning 30? All alone? A commitment-free weekend in Paris should help, shouldn't it?
What does a single woman do when she's turning thirty? She takes a weekend trip to Paris looking for commitment-free sex. Or that's what Davina Chandler does, anyway.
Enter Johnathon, a tall, charming Englishman. How can she possibly resist his magnetism and that sexy dimple?
What starts out as a lark quickly becomes so much more, but can one weekend turn into a lifetime? And will a lie of omission bring everything into jeopardy?
You can read an excerpt here.
The trailer for A Bar In Paris is now live here.




REVIEWS
 
Dakota Harrison received an awesome Top Pick (early review) from Harlequin Junkie for her upcoming release of Breathless (out with Samhain Oct.29th, 2013).
"Every now and then a writer is able to compose a book that you fall in love with, which impacts you in such a way that even when you have finished reading, the story seems to live on in your soul. Breathless by Dakota Harrison  is one of those kind of books. It held my heart in a vise from beginning to end."

Cheryse Durrant received a 4 star review for The Blood She Betrayed from O Mundo Encantadodos Livros.
“I'm overwhelmed by the feelings this book aroused. It is like no other, an incredible and inspiring originality that is a breath of fresh air in urban fantasy. Even though the beginning was a little difficult to understand and it took a while to create empathy with the characters, I found myself completely sucked into the plot and could only settle once I finished reading.”
