Join the read-along for this AMAZING series from D.A. Roach!



READING * GAMES* GUEST AUTHORS * GIVEAWAYS* FUN!

Demon Hunters Series Reading Marathon Starts Nov. 1st!





What is a marathon, you ask? A marathon is a read-a-long of an entire series. For this marathon, my co-hosts and I have divided my YA Paranormal series into three 2-week legs. Readers will read the assigned chapters and then return to the event page to participate in games, contests, and other fun before continuing on.

Schedule:
The main purpose of the event is to read my books. We'll give you a time frame for reaching Mile Markers (check points) and at those mile markers, we will post a few discussion threads or games that reflect the action, plotline, and themes presented in the chapters read. You will also be able to ask me anything about the book and what my thought process was!

Finish line:
Readers who finish the entire series and post reviews for all three books reach the finish line and are eligible for the GRAND PRIZE DEMON HUNTER BOX. This grand prize is packed with paranormal goodies! The finish line party will take place on Saturday, Dec.15th where we'll have some closing remarks, more fun and prizes!

Guest Authors:
A reading marathon would be nothing special if it didn't introduce you to other authors and their "trophies." So, I have invited a few authors to "showcase" their own books.




If you haven't yet downloaded Between the Bleeding Willows, Book 1 Demon Hunters, it will be free Oct. 31-Nov. 4th

Behind The Door by A. Gavazzoni & a giveaway

 

 
 
Behind The Door
 
by A. Gavazzoni
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
GENRE:   Psychological and erotic thriller
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 BLURB:
When Lara dies at the hands of a Manhattan lawyer during a sex game, his defense attorney, Carl, hires Simone, a psychiatrist, professor and author of books on sexual behavior to help him buttress his argument that Lara’s death was accidental. To help his defense, Carl’s client has written a detailed account of his steamy, year-long relationship with Lara. Carl gives the text to Simone for analysis. While evaluating the presumed killer’s writing, Simone continues to receive psychiatric patients with sexual disorders and unusual fantasies, and to research strange sexual behavior for her next book. Meanwhile, Simone’s clinical partner, friend and research colleague, Edward, is working with the police to capture a serial killer who is torturing and killing women. From hot and unusual sex and interesting psychiatric patients, to the swing houses of New York and Paris, this fast-paced page-turner is a blend of mystery, suspense, humor, romance and erotica.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Excerpt:
 
“Yes indeed, my friend. I’ve seen a lot in my short life. I’ve bent over backward to please. I’ve been a puppet. That wasn’t for me, so one day I decided to stop.”
 
More than a hint of pain showed in her eyes…unsettling to find in such a young and beautiful woman. Who could have hurt her so much that she’d come to behave as she did?
 
“I know how it is,” I said. “It’s like apnea. What’s pleasurable at the start of relationships doesn’t last because it’s not real. You’ve decided to be real, once and for all.”
 
“Apnea?”
I’d finally said something that had surprised her.
“Yes. I like to go diving. Sometimes I dive without air tanks. I hold my breath. It’s called apnea and you can do it for only so long. At the beginning of relationships, people hold their breath. When they can’t do it anymore, they go back to being who they are and relationships end.”
 
“I adore that description.”
 




Inspiration to write Behind the Door

First of all, in my opinion the idea for a book comes first from the heart and then the mind fine tunes everything.

During my career, my legal career as I´ve been a lawyer for twenty seven years, I’ve worked with all kinds of people, all them so different, and I’ve met good people and bad, people who inspired me, people who provoked intense emotions within me—from love to hatred and from joy to sorrow. I suppose I’ve taken a little bit of all those people and combined them to form my characters.

Also, I love to observe people. There is no one person like another. They are all unique. They are all inspiring.

I also love to listen to people…when you really pay attention and listen carefully, you can find the hidden meanings and emotions behind the words. There are times when I’ve heard a conversation or even a single phrase and the underlying meaning provoked a whole scene in my mind. A simple phrase can contain all the elements of an entire story.

Behind the Door is also about not judging. I dealt with judgments during my whole life…and I hate them; they are usually so biased, based on “the book’s cover”. I wanted to show that how people behave is often based on their history, their personal traumas and dramas… and everybody has a good side and  a bad side—that’s life.

My characters in Behind the Door are a combined mix of traits I found in other people and were created to tell a story inspired by my very fertile imagination and the emotions life brings to me.

“Take me. Own me. Never let me wait.”

From New York Times Bestselling Author, J.C. Reed comes a brand-new standalone novel.



I’m an average girl.
He’s a famous bull rider.
He doesn’t know that I’m into him.

The first time Cash Boyd locks eyes with Erin Stone, sparks fly, and not only the clutch-at-your-sheets kind. There is something about Erin that makes him want to push her away while at the same time drives him wild for her. He’s a man of many things, but being helpless at the hands of a woman isn’t one of them. Finding himself at her mercy, he intends to make her job as hard as possible for her. 

Burning with desire for the one man who’s the shadow to her light, Erin gives in to Cash’s advances…even though she could be destroyed by the truth she’s afraid to disclose. Little does she know that there is also more than meets the eye to Cash and she might just get more than she bargained for.


Cash might be the best at taming bulls, but taming her heart could prove to be the greatest challenge of his life.

His eyes shimmer green, boring into me.

Book Tour & Giveaway: The Forger by Michele Hauf


THE FORGER
Elite Crimes Unit #2

by Michele Hauf

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Pub Date: 8/8/2017



Olivia Lawson’s bosses at Scotland Yard don’t take her work very seriously. Art and antiquities? Bor-ing! But her latest investigation, at London’s world-renowned Tate, is turning out to be far more explosive than anyone expected. In fact, the vandalized, booby-trapped painting hanging on the gallery wall would have blown her off her feet if it wasn’t for the tall, dark-haired stranger who tackled her at the last second—a stranger as finely sculpted as any masterpiece in the museum.

Ethan Maxwell is working this case for the Elite Crimes Unit because it was a choice between that and lockup. A (barely) reformed art forger, he’s got the expertise to lead Olivia through a dangerous manhunt. But the crime may have a more personal connection to him—and the all-too-real feelings he’s developing toward Olivia could pull her into the line of fire too . . .

Review:
This was a very fast, easy read. While this is book two it can be completely read as a standalone. I didn't know originally when I was going to read it that it was part of a series but there was absolutely no problems reading this one.
The story was interesting but at times moved a bit slow for my taste but overall I enjoyed it. Also learned a lot more about the art world.
While I did really like both Olivia and Ethan, at times Olivia seemed to contradict herself to me. She's naturally a very shy person and doesn't make eye contact easily but then she says some very forward things to Ethan that just seem out of place for the character at the time. They had really great chemistry and were very cute together.
I do plan on going and reading the rest of the series and would definitely recommend this for someone looking for a light mystery read with some steam to it.



THE THIEF

Elite Crimes Unit #1

The Elite Crimes Unit works behind the scenes of Interpol—and employs some of the world’s most talented criminal minds. Because as everyone knows, it takes a thief to catch a thief—or to seduce one . . .
The old farmhouse in the French countryside is a refuge for former jewel thief Josephine Deveraux. Admittedly, there aren’t many men in the vicinity, but she has her cat to cuddle up with. It’s a far cry from her former life, constantly running from the law, and she’s enjoying her peace . . . until the intruder in the three-piece suit tackles her. He wants her back in the game, helping with a heist—and he’s not above making threats to get his way.
Little does Josephine know that notorious—and notoriously charming—thief, Xavier Lambert, is after the very same 180-carat prize she’s being blackmailed to steal. To his chagrin, he’s doing it not as a free agent, but as a member of the Elite Crimes Unit—the team he was forced to join when his brilliant career came to a sudden end. And little does Xavier know that his comeback is about to include a stranger’s kiss, a stinging slap, and a hunt for missing treasure—along with the infuriatingly sexy woman who’s outfoxing him . . .



Michele Hauf has been writing romance, action-adventure and fantasy stories for over twenty years. Her first published novel was Dark Rapture (Zebra). France, musketeers, vampires and faeries populate her stories. And if she followed the adage “write what you know,” all her stories would have snow in them. Fortunately, she steps beyond her comfort zone and writes about countries she has never visited and of creatures she has never seen.
