About The Book


The Dark Cycle, Book 1
Author: Rachel A. Marks
Release Date: July 1st, 2015
Publisher: Skyscape

Aidan O’Linn’s childhood ended the night he saw a demon kill his mother and mark his sister, Ava, with Darkness. Since then, every three years the demons have returned to try to claim her. Living in the gritty, forgotten corners of Los Angeles, Aidan has managed to protect his sister, but he knows that even his powers to fight demons and speak dead languages won’t keep her safe for much longer.

In desperation, Aidan seeks out the help of Sid, the enigmatic leader of a group of teens who run LA Paranormal, an Internet reality show that fights demons and ghosts. In their company, Aidan believes he’s finally found a haven for Ava. But when he meets Kara, a broken girl who can spin a hypnotic web of passionate energy, he awakens powers he didn’t know he had―and unleashes a new era of war between the forces of Light and the forces of Darkness.

With the fate of humanity in his hands, can Aidan keep the Darkness at bay and accept his brilliant, terrifying destiny?

{Tour Stop} Dirty Thoughts by Megan Erickson

I'm really excited to be participating in the DIRTY THOUGHTS blog tour for author Megan Erickson and Avon Impulse! Check out the cover, the killer synopsis and the can't miss giveaway at the bottom!!

About The Book


Some things are sexier the second time around

Cal Payton has gruff and grumbly down to an art...all the better for keeping people away. And it usually works. Until Jenna Macmillan—his biggest mistake—walks into Payton and Sons mechanic shop all grown up, looking like sunshine, and inspiring more than a few dirty thoughts.

Jenna was sure she was long over the boy she'd once loved with reckless abandon, but one look at the steel-eyed Cal Payton has her falling apart all over again. Ten years may have passed, but the pull is stronger than ever...and this Cal is all man.

Cal may have no intention of letting Jenna in, but she's always been his light, and it's getting harder to stay all alone in the dark. When a surprise from the past changes everything, Cal and Jenna must decide if their connection should be left alone, or if it's exactly what they need for the future of their dreams.

{Book Review} A Girl Undone (A Girl Called Fearless #2) by Catherine Linka


A Girl Undone
A Girl Called Fearless #2
Author: Catherine Linka
Release Date: June 23rd, 2015
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Rating: 4 Birds

On the run with deadly government secrets, Avie must decide if she can live up to her name and truly become fearless for the cause or if it’s better to just give in.

The sequel and explosive conclusion to A Girl Called Fearless.
Having survived a violent confrontation with the US government, Avie is not out of danger. Both she and the young man she loves, Yates, have been declared terrorists, and Yates is hospitalized in critical condition, leaving Avie with the perilous task of carrying information that can bring down the Paternalist party, if she can get it into the right hands.

Forced on the run with handsome, enigmatic woodsman Luke, Avie struggles when every turn becomes a choice between keeping the two of them alive or completing their mission. With her face on every news channel and a quarter million dollar reward from the man who still owns her marriage Contract, Avie’s worst fears are about to come true.

Equal parts thrilling and romantic, A Girl Undone is sure to keep your heart racing right until the very end.

Non-stop action from page one, Linka's all too possible world will stick you in your seat, turning pages until you've read them all.

Avie is a terrorist. Yates is hurt. And it looks like in order to survive she's just going to have to become exactly what she doesn't want to be, in order for everyone she loves to survive.  Essentially she will sacrifice herself, for her family and friends.

A GIRL UNDONE is full of tough choices, more tough choices than I think any one person should be made to make in such a short time.  Avie, who has quickly shot to the top of my kick-ass-heroine list, takes them all in stride and soldiers through in a way that, considering the main topic of the book, I think is not only necessary for young girls to see – but inspiring.

While a bit heavier on the political side of things as we get deeper into the Paternalists plans and how Avie fits into it, you won't be bored to death like sitting through a lecture. I promise.  Some faces from the first book will show up, unexpectedly, which I think is a great bonus for fans of the series. I don't know about you, but the sudden reappearance of something I thought was gone for no other reason than they just weren't mentioned much any more is a blast! And it reminds me that anything is possible.

I can not recommend this series enough to anyone looking for a strong female lead to lift them up. It's clean, and definitely good for anyone who likes to avoid any heavy or even mildly heavy sex/make out scenes.  It belongs on your shelf, and it will live in your heart forever!
