Touching Humanity by Erin Hayes Book Blitz and Giveaway



Touching Humanity
Erin Hayes
(The Rogue’s Galaxy, #2)
Publication date: December 2nd 2017
Genres: Adult, Cyberpunk, Science Fiction

Looking for the first book in The Rogue’s Galaxy? Check out Touching Infinity, part of the Dominion Rising Boxed set!

My name is Clementine Jones. I’m more machine than human, with a sketchy past and an even dimmer future.

I’m the new captain of the Pícara II. I brought down the spaceport of one of the largest companies in the galaxy. I’m secretly infected with a ticking time-bomb of a virus. I’m in love with an android who’d rather erase the memory of our kiss than deal with the aftermath.

I’m scared shitless of what to do next. And I’m definitely not hero material.

But the ruling corporations of the galaxy have just made their last markdown on the price of human life. That is, if I have anything to say about it. And I aim to bring them down.

EXCERPT:

“Louis? Louis, I can’t see you.”

Suddenly, the lights on the space station go out, throwing me into complete darkness. The pitter patter of the leaking coolant stops as well, leaving me in sensory deprivation as I don’t feel the wall anymore.

“Clementine.” He sounds so close. Like he’s right in front of me.

“Louis!” I reach out.

Suddenly an overhead light pops on, like a beacon in the darkness. It blinds me at first and I stagger backwards, shielding my one eyes from the brightness.

And in front of me is a table. Not just any table, though.

The table.

The table where Louis had been sitting at while he tried removing my infected hand. Where he became infected himself, and…and…

And became a part of the table. He melted into it, becoming something that was no longer man and no longer table. Something that was no longer biological and no longer inanimate.

Something other.

It’s in front of me right now, illuminated in this space in front of me.

“Clementine,” Louis says, and I know that it’s indeed coming from the thing in front of me. I find that I’m shaking my head, feeling like the lost little girl from so long ago.

“No,” I whisper. “No.”

“Help me, Clementine. Help me.”

I don’t know how. I have the vaccines hidden away in my quarters back on the Picara II. But that’s in another plane of existence, thousands of light years away. There’s no way I can get to them in time. No way I can save the man who saved me from the horrors of Dark Horse-1.

“I can’t!” I cry out. “I don’t know how.”

“Please…” Louis says. From what mouth, I have no idea. It’s like he’s speaking directly into my mind. “Please help me, Clementine. Like I helped you.”

“I…I don’t know how…” I whisper brokenly. My fingers flutter above the table, and I’m not sure if I should touch it. If I do, I could get infected.

Yet, right now, that’s all I want to do.

“You did this.” I hiss a deep a breath as the harsh words cut through me. Louis’s tone has changed now, into something harsher, more sinister. “You did this to me.”

A Sheikh for Christmas Book Blitz and Giveaway



A Sheikh for Christmas
Leslie North
(All I Want for Christmas is…, #1)
Publication date: December 7th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

It may be cold outside, but the snow begins to melt when an unlikely couple comes together during the Holidays…

Christmas is right around the corner, but after creating a society scandal, New York heiress Melody Hascall-Ebons has nowhere to turn. Cut off by her family for running away with an actor—who turned out to be using her for publicity—Mel is penniless, homeless, and disgraced. There’s only one place to go, and that’s back to the fiancé she ditched. But instead of her ex, she finds his friend Daveed Rafik. The handsome military translator disarms Mel with his easy smile and surprising sympathy. But as she struggles to get her life on track, the last thing Mel needs is to fall into the strong arms of her ex-fiancé’s best friend.

Counter-terrorism expert Sheikh Daveed Rafik has spent his career dealing with delicate and dangerous situations, but none of them compares to Melody Hascall-Ebons. He’s supposed to be helping his friend Murphy find his missing sister, not consoling the spoiled rich girl who dumped their buddy Heath. But the more he learns about Melody, the more he likes. With her unexpected intelligence and distinctive beauty, Melody calls to him in powerful ways. But when the woman he is arranged to marry shows up, Daveed’s highly organized life suddenly gets very complicated.

The streets of New York are steeped in holiday cheer, but can Daveed and Melody thaw the ice around their hearts enough to make room for love?

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / Kobo / iBooks

EXCERPT:

Melody watched him walk away beneath her damp lashes. She’d never really paid much attention to Daveed before. He’d been one of Heath’s friends and always hanging around the periphery of their group, but had sort of kept to himself. Now, though, he’d come to her aid in her hour of need—or more like day of desperation—and a girl couldn’t ignore such chivalry.

As the silence between them grew more awkward by the second, she got up and wandered over to the table, which was covered by papers and post-it notes. Daveed didn’t look up at her at all, so she finally pulled out a chair and sat, forcing a tremulous smile. “What are you doing”

“Huh?” Daveed glanced up at her with a frown, as if just then remembering she was still there. “Oh, making lists. It’s how I keep track of everything I’ve got going on and my responsibilities.”

“Oh.” She picked up one yellow square and squinted at this illegible scrawl before she snatched it away from her.

“Please, don’t touch anything. These are all very important.”

“Right.” She’d never been big on lists or organization herself. Her mother had always had a social secretary to take care of most things for her and when that failed, then Melody preferred to “wing it.” For her life was all about spontaneity, but then again, given how this whole situation with Jefferson Hanks had turned out, maybe planning and consideration was the way to go. While Daveed said nothing more, scowling down at his notes again, she studied him more. Honestly, she really didn’t know the guy very well. From what Heath had told her, Daveed Rafik had served alongside him and their other friend, Murphy Coen, in the Middle East. Melody had always thought of Daveed as a sort of an Arabic James Bond type from the way Heath had bragged about the guy. He graduated Yale at the top of his class, spoke five languages fluently, and thwarted terrorists in a single bound, all without firing a single weapon.

Now, however, as he wrote furiously, his dark brows knit in concentration, she took her first real look at the guy. She’s noticed when he’d first answered the door that he was tall and well-muscled. As she sat beside him at the table, his dark brown hair curled above the collar of his white button-down shirt and reflected hints of gold beneath the lights. Yep. He was gorgeous, no doubt about it. If you went for the romance-novel cover sheikh type. Which she didn’t, at least not up to this point.


Author Bio:

Leslie North is the pen name for a critically-acclaimed author of women’s contemporary romance and fiction. The anonymity gives her the perfect opportunity to paint with her full artistic palette, especially in the romance and erotic fantasy genres.

The truth of the matter is she loves her fictional persona, Leslie North, more than her normal, day-to-day persona! Her bestselling books focus on strong characters and particularly women who aren’t afraid to challenge an alpha male. Inspired after years of travel, her stories are set all over the world, from the tough streets of Russia to the beautiful beaches of the middle east.

Leslie fell in love with romance when she first picked up a scrappy, dog-eared romance book from her local library. She began writing soon after and the rest, as they say, was history. She now lives in a cozy cottage on the British coast and enjoys taking long walks with her two Dalmatians, George and Fergie.

She LOVES reader feedback, and if you have any comments, don’t hesitate to contact her via e-mail: leslie@leslienorthbooks.com.

The Fourth Element Trilogy Book Blitz and Giveaway



The Fourth Element Trilogy: Boxed Set
Kat Ross
Publication date: September 22nd 2017
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Gladiator meets Romeo and Juliet in this “spellbinding fantasy” trilogy (Kirkus Reviews) set in ancient Persia!

They are the light against the darkness.

The steel against the necromancy of the Druj.

And they use demons to hunt demons….

Nazafareen lives for revenge. A girl of the isolated Four-Legs Clan, all she knows about the King’s elite Water Dogs is that they leash wicked creatures called daevas to protect the empire from the Undead. But when scouts arrive to recruit young people with the gift, she leaps at the chance to join their ranks. To hunt the monsters that killed her sister.

Scarred by grief, she’s willing to pay any price, even if it requires linking with a daeva named Darius. Human in body, he’s possessed of a terrifying power, one that Nazafareen controls. But the golden cuffs that join them have an unwanted side effect. Each experiences the other’s emotions, and human and daeva start to grow dangerously close.

As they pursue a deadly foe across the arid waste of the Great Salt Plain to the glittering capital of Persepolae, unearthing the secrets of Darius’s past along the way, Nazafareen is forced to question his slavery—and her own loyalty to the empire. But with an ancient evil stirring in the north, and a young conqueror sweeping in from the west, the fate of an entire civilization may be at stake…

So begins an epic story of adventure, romance and betrayal that leads to undiscovered magical realms and a final confrontation with a demon queen bent on destroying them all.

Book Review: The Case of the Deadly Doppelganger by Lucy Banks~5 Stars

I want to thank NetGalley and Amberjack for granting my wish to provide an eARC in exchange for an honest review. I appreciate this opportunity.

Book Blurb:

Only a few months have passed since the day Kester Lanner forced an angry ghost through the spirit door, but business prospects for Dr. Ribero’s supernatural agency haven’t improved. Things are looking grim when the agency lands a contract which they must share with a rival agency headed by Dr Ribero’s sworn enemy, Larry Higgins. Desperate for the job, the team accepts and begins to investigate the seaside town of Lyme Regis, where elderly victims are dying.

The same mysterious clue links the horrendous deaths: the victims all see a double of themselves before dying. The teams wonder if they are dealing with a rogue doppelgänger, one that isn’t content just predicting deaths, but carrying them out as well. The victims’ connection to an ancient grave site leads to speculation that they may have disturbed a spirit more powerful than the two agencies can handle.

One thing is certain, the won’t stop unless Kester and the others can overcome their rivalry and stop this deadly spirit.

Review: I give this book 5 out of 5 supernatural stars! Even though this was the second in the series I was able to read it as a standalone. This book was filled with twists and turns. I didn’t want to put it down and at times it was hilarious! I loved the characters for the most part but what sold me on 5 stars besides the plot was how the author had a transgendered person in the story and discussed the importance of it being accepted. She covered the issue quite well that trans men and women face. Lucy Banks weaved supernatural elements, humor and sleuthing into a worthwhile series. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the first one to get a better feel for things but this was also great as a standalone. When I read this a couple weeks ago it had me up through the night and kept my mind off of trials in my life and topk me on a fun adventure! I definitely recommend this series for those who love something supernatural!😊👻😄

*~Book Review: Lucy’s Book Club for the Lost and Found~5 Stars~*

I want to thank NetGalley and Bookouture for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review. I appreciate this opportunity.

First in the book club we have of course the sweet and generous Lucy who is the library’s temporary manager for the year. Lucy has been doing a great job of running the local library even with having issues with her co-workers and budget cuts. She is in her early twenties and is a very caring person who will go to great lengths to help everyone she can and we see this especially with the members of her little book club she takes pride in but what about Lucy herself and her hopes and dreams? Will she find love and stop for a moment to think about herself first before everyone else?

Next we have the mysterious Callum, he finds solace in the library away from his well known disastrous family who are nothing like him but everyone assumes that he is. He is highly educated in computers and takes comfort in helping the people that come in the library with their technological issues. He is shy and very unsure of himself. His family’s insults and antagonism have caused his very low self-esteem and lack of confidence. Through the library and especially Lucy and the book group they encourage Callum to gain confidence and help him realise his true talents and his potential. Can Callum realise his true worth and learn to love himself?

Lia, is a full time care taker og her mother who has dementia. It’s just the two of them and Lia is left with minimal support. Lia’s dad left them at a young age and Lia was left with all the responsibility put on her. She does not get out much or have time alone so Lucy’s small book club gets her out and able to meet with other people. Lia has a something she has always wanted that we find out which is dancing, adapted from her parents who were very talented as dancers when they were young and met. Lia beats herself up if she does anything for herself but with the encouragement from her new friends, will Lia be able to take that first step to discover who she really is and catch a glimpse of what her future may hold for her?

Hattie is a single mother who is trying to make ends meet for herself and her little daughter Poppy. She has been down and out since she caught her ex-fiancé having sex with another woman at their engagement party. Right after she left her ex she discovered she was pregnant. Since the engagement party Hattie and her mom have never been on good terms and Hattie does not know why. It eats away at Hattie the distance and tension they have suddenly. As Hattie’s sister is getting married there is no better time to start to try to mend bridges and find out why her mom blames her.

Finally we have the kind and a gently natured elderly man Oscar, whose wife since a teenager, Mary died a year ago. He is strickened with grief. His daily trips to the library gets him out of the house and he looks forward to his talks with Lucy and going to the book club. He attempts to search for his long lost daughter who was put up for adoption without his consent when he was a young man. Will Oscar find the strength to go through with finding his daughter after all these years or does his daughter even want to be found?

Together these broken people unite but are they able to be happy and live fulfilling lives? Read this book to find out!

Review: I give this book 5 out of 5 heartwarming stars! This book is just what the bibliotherapist ordered! Bookouture has never let me down with the books they publish and they made a good choice by picking Emma Davies and her book Lucy’s Book Club for the Lost and Found! I absolutely loved the characters in this story and I felt I could definitely relate to Lucy. I know what it’s like to conpletely do everything for others and not stop to do for yourself. I still haven’t figured that out. I am so glad I picked up this book and if your looking for a read that will give you all those warm and happy feels you crave, I highly recommend this book!😁💝📚
