Star Cursed
Second Book in the Curse of the Beast Series
By Ashley Lavering

Star Cursed coming February 8th, 2013! 
                                                          Add it to your To-Be-Read List.

Chel finished tying me to the chair and stood. “This is crazy.”
I ignored her comment. “Go down to the basement.”
“Now, I know you’ve lost it.” She folded her arms. “How will this prove that your giant dog is the hot guy that got in your van?”
“I’ll explain later. Just trust me.”
One of her eyebrows rose.
“Please?” I waited for her to nod. “Once you’re down there, I want you to whisper something. Then come back up.”
“Whatever.” With an eye roll, she left the room.
I focused on her feet thumping against the wood stairs and heard the change when they slapped across the tiled kitchen floor. Once the basement door closed, I strained to hear her, but all I caught was a beetle scuttling across the kitchen. Nerves tangled in my gut. Had I missed it?
“If this doesn’t work, I’m calling the loony bin, Tay.” Chel’s voice rang so loud that I jerked back, toppling the chair. I hit the floor with a thud.
Beast’s airy chortle resonated from outside the window.
“Shut up. This isn’t funny,” I told him.
Chel walked through the door. “Geeze, what happened?” She hurried to me. “Are you okay?” She righted my chair with a grunt.
“That depends.”
“On?” She cocked an eyebrow at me. 
 “On whether or not you’re going to untie me.”
“Oh my gosh. I’m so sorry.” She scrambled to untie the knots.
My hands slipped free and I rubbed my bruised arm. “What kind of friend are you?”
“What?” She startled.
I shook my head at her. “I can’t believe you’d commit me.”
“Wait, you heard that?” Her eyes widened.
I repeated it word for word.
“Whoa, that’s, like, creepy and awesome at the same time. But I still don’t understand how this proves your dog is a werewolf.”
The dreaded moment had arrived and nerves attacked my stomach. “Because, Chel—he bit me.”

 Book Description:

Seventeen year-old Grace grows up knowing she’s different, but she always attributed it to a mother who didn’t want her, a father who abandoned her, and a curse that sets her apart. Despite those struggles, her grandfather remained her rock and confidant. Her life irrevocably shatters the day her grandfather dies.

The day of his funeral sets off a chain of events, making Grace question everything she’s ever known to be true, and as a result, who she can truly trust. She inherits his house, part of his money, his Guardian and something that ties them together.

Just before Grace’s 18th birthday, she is thrust into a world she couldn’t fathom existed and does everything she can to thwart the destiny suddenly forced upon her. She’s been chosen for greatness, but at what cost? With eyes now open, she must choose to either be Chosen, or watch those around her suffer the consequences.

Torn between the man who’s come to protect her and the one sent to destroy her, she teeters on the edge of decision, trying to come to grips with who she is, what she wants and what all of that means for her, those she loves and the rest of mankind.

Elise Marion - Redemption

Elise Marion Redemption

November 15 will mark the end of the journey of Angels on earth in the Angels Among Us series. In honor of the Series ending we are having have an amazing giveaway and interview with the amazing Elise Marion..

When and why did you begin writing?

I actually started writing when I was twelve years old. I loved to read and had an active imagination so I would make up stories and write them down. As I got older I started getting into Romance novels and tried my hand at writing a few in high school. To this day it remains my favorite genre to write.

What was the hardest part of writing the Angles Among us series?

I think the hardest part was writing a good, fictional story about Angels and Demons that held a bit of mythology from different religions, without injecting my own beliefs. Many of what I wrote about heaven, hell, angels, demons, and the whole spiritual world, is not at all true to what I believe religiously, but I believe in writing fiction there can be a healthy separation of what I believe and what I write. It was fun, though, playing around with the gray areas of religious belief, fiction, and what I believe to be a reality.

How did you come up with the idea of An angel of healing ?

In the spiritual world that I've created in this book, every angel has a purpose. In book 1 of the series,
'Fallen', angel Amir is a healer. He can feel the pain and sickness of others and can heal them of any sickness or disease. In book 2, 'Tempted' angel Sarah is a Messenger angel, whose job is is to deliver messages between Heaven and angels or other spiritual beings stationed on Earth. In this book, 'Redemption', our hero Nathan was once a Warrior angel. I did this because I liked the idea of Angels being sort of like this army in the war between good and evil. Just like in the military, the angels of this army all have their purpose for the cause.

How was writing Redemption for you was it hard to say good bye?

'Redemption' was a real challenge because I knew before I even started that it was going to be much different from the first two books. Because the hero, Nathan, is a Fallen angel and is fighting against an eternity in Hell, I knew that this story would be much grittier and darker than the first two. It was hard, because I often wondered if it wasn't TOO dark, if the fans of the first two books wouldn't like it for that very reason. Thanks to the advice of friends, and following my own gut, I stuck to my guns and wrote the story the way I imagined it. I feel strongly that fans of the series will appreciate it because of its uniqueness and find closure in Nathan's story. He was introduced in book 2 and his fate was kind of left hanging in the air.

It was definitely hard to say good-bye to this series. But like all good things, it had to end. And it's best to go out on a high note and end it with a bang.

What do you think you will be working on next?

I am always working on many things at one time. I am currently finishing up my last release for the year 2012, and erotic romance entitled 'The New Year's Masquerade', which is a sequel to a Valentine's Day themed book I released earlier this year. I am also gearing up for 2013 with the 3rd book in my Historical Romance series, Kings of Cardenas. as well as researching for a series of books entitled 'Red Tail Hearts' about the pilots known as Red Tails'....or, The Tuskegee Airmen.

Do you have any advise for other inspiring writers?(like myself)

Perseverance is the key. The literary world is full of critics and nay-sayers. Many people will tell you 'no', or that you don't have what it takes, or that your books can't sell. I believe that the publishing industry is changing for the better with the dawning of new era of self and indie publishing. The sale of e-books increases every year and many Independent authors have made it to the top of NYT and USA Today Bestseller lists. I hold these examples up and remember then when I feel discouraged, because I know that it is possible.

I think it's also important to be professional and do what you can to find good editors and cover artists. Find another writer to be your critique partner or join a critique group. We all become better through constructive criticism and friendship.

Last but not least: This is my favorite question to ask:(It really is)

Is there a message you want your readers to take at the end that you didn't think a lot of people got?

I think the main takeaway from every book in this series is that love always prevails. I wish I had something deeper to tell you, but that's the truth of what I do as a writer. I write Romance and no matter what sub-genre I happen to be writing, I also remind myself of that truth: love conquers all. In the case of this series, it may even conquer the terrors of a fate spent in Hell for eternity.

I want to say thank you for your time and thank you for being a wonderful person and Author....

Exquisite (Exquisite Series)


Book Decription:

Publication Date:October 8, 2012

Her heart was guarded…

Tormented by self-imposed guilt, Dr Lena O’Donnell has spent the last nine years in survival mode. Struggling through days that seem to blend together and battling her way through each horrifying night, she’s determined that this is what she deserves…

Until he tore down the walls…

Mason Langley’s life is going exactly the way he planned it, until her. A confirmed bachelor and the successful owner of the hottest restaurant to hit Chicago, he never expected to be blindsided by an angry woman in a pair of scrubs. No matter how hard he tries, he can’t seem to shake the doctor, and he finds himself liking the way she makes him feel.

Almost over night Lena finds her world turned upside down by Mason and the sexual desire they discover together. Slowly, she lowers her guard and invites him inside but when tragedy strikes she begins to believe that sometimes it’s better to be alone and safe than to love and lose…

First I want to say, WOW. Exquisite is truly that... Exquisite! This book is a diamond in the rough and I completely enjoyed it.. I laughed, I cried, I smiled, and I got turned on like crazy! I truly can not wait until Entice comes out.

An Interview With Ella Frank! 

What made you decide to finally pick up a pen and start working towards that dream of writing a novel?
I have always loved to write and have for years but honestly it was a really good friend of mine. She read the first chapter and then asked, well? Where's the rest? A month later she had the rest!
So we all love our fictional characters, especially our male ones, so I have to know, was Mason derived from anyone?
Mason is 100% fictional, however in saying that I wanted him to be essentially a good guy and I took that trait from my husband. Sure at the end he has his moment where you may want to yell WAKE UP! However, I really believe and have seen many people react completely irrationally to the death of a loved one and unfortunately it is often the ones we love the most that we lash out at. In the end I want Mason to be a man any woman would want to have by their side and in their life, he's sexy, kind, sweet and loves his family.. Who wouldn't want that?
Were there any specific books or authors that inspired you to write?
I love romance!! All romance novels inspire me and I have been told I look at everything through rose colored glasses. There isn't a specific author just a genre I can't get enough of. I love the thought that in the end everyone gets someone and we all deserve a happily ever after.
As a recently self published author do you have any advice for those (like me) who are currently trying to write as well?
Don't give up! Sit down and write your story - be happy with it. I also found myself four amazing ladies who critique my stories, so I recommend that and then get and editor. Oh and ENJOY YOURSELF!
Did you find writing a "love" scene challenging? And if so what helped you over come that hurdle?
No, I LOVE writing them. They are so much fun to I actually found myself the other day, while writing Shelly's story, just glancing around my house wondering where and really can be such fun writing up a steamy scene ;-)
What was your favorite scene to write?
Probably the jogging scene which was then followed by the dirty...ahem..clean shower scene. I LOVED writing the poignant moments and actually the first scene of the whole book I wrote was the fight at Mason's condo - but the jogging scene was great because I honestly had no clue where I was taking it and then Mason mentioned a shower and I thought...what?? What do you mean a shower..but then he well showed me!!

         And lastly, (I figured twenty questions was a lot) how many books do you         anticipate to write in this truely amazing series?
There's three. I wanted the series to be based on the women. So there's Lena's story, then Shelly who is a bit of a firecracker and then we go back to Rachel. The best part about a series is we get to see the progression of everyone through each book. So if you loved them in the first book you get to catch up with them again and again!

Flat Out Love

Flat Out Love:
New York Times Bestselling Author :
Jessica Park is the author of the young adult novels FLAT-OUT LOVE: Among other things. (RELATIVELY FAMOUS and the Gourmet Girl mystery series) Plus some e shorts.

A little Known Fact:
Jessica loves caffeine. I mean she loves Caffeine....

Kindle edition Link:

Paperback Link:


He was tall, at least six feet, with dirty blond hair that hung over his eyes. His T-shirt read Nietzsche Is My Homeboy.
So, that was Matt. Who Julie Seagles likes. A lot. But there is also Finn. Who she flat out loves.
Complicated? Awkward? Completely.
But really, how was this freshly-minted Boston transplant and newbie college freshman supposed to know that she would end up living with the family of an old friend of her mother’s? This was all supposed to be temporary. Julie wasn’t supposed to be important to the Watkins family, or to fall in love with one of the brothers. Especially the one she’s never quite met. But what does that really matter? Finn gets her, like no one ever has before. They have connection.
But here’s the thing about love, in all its twisty, bumpy permutations – it always throws you a few curves. And no one ever escapes unscathed.

Purchase your FOL SWAG HERE!

Flat-Out Love App:Coming soon Initially the FOL app will only be available for Apple products. After that, the team will rewrite it for Android.

Check it out:


How long did it take you to write FOL?
The original idea for FLAT-OUT LOVE was based on a twist on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, so I spent a number of months working on that outline. But I could never get it to work the way that I wanted it to, so I shook it out and kept the base themes, eventually outlining FOL. Once I got writing, it took about six months to complete the book plus a good month of tweaking.”
Did you get just as emotional writing FOL as you are now with your newest book?
Over specific scenes and chapters, yes. Before I'd even considered writing myself, I'd heard authors talk about how real their characters are for them, how attached they get, and how much they miss them when the book is finished. I never understood that until I wrote about Matt, Julie, Celeste, and Finn. It requires a good degree of emotional investment when writing characters, especially ones like these who are going through so much, and to deliver characters that touch readers, I had to feel what the characters did. There were some tough nights of crying, but I think it paid off.”
Did you ever think it would become as popular as it did?
I really had no idea if anyone would respond to the story, so I was rather terrified to release it. FOL is a unique story in so many ways, and I wasn't sure if I'd have a readership. Seeing it take off the way it did was stunning and wonderful.”
Is there a message you want your readers to take at the end that you didn't think a lot of people got?
The idea of not missing people who are right in front of you, not missing out on spectacular romantic relationships and friendships because someone doesn't fit into who we are taught to find appealing. Celeste is not the average preteen, but she's well worth getting to know. And Matt? He's no Finn. Julie battles this struggle herself, finding that she's drawn to the classically handsome, athletic, ultra-masculine guy, while for a while missing the more off-beat, but equally charismatic guy who is right in front of her. So ignore socially constructed ideals, and follow your heart.”

Hi and Welcome

Hi all, and welcome to My Blog.

       Take a minute to look around. Visit my about page to learn a little about me, my Review policies, and of coarse my links pages.

       OKAY. Lets get this started the right way. Each week I will spotlight an Author. Maybe host a give away, have an interview, do a review or the synopsis of a book written by the spotlighted author. OR all of the above......
I want to say Thank you to Brittany Gallegos and Tamara Beard....(You two are Amazing).

        I like three out of four for this weeks spotlight.  Which with out further adieu ..

 I give you.  A giveaway, A interview, and  the synopsis !!!!       

                                                        Nicole Williams 
            Crash ,Clash, and Yep Crush!!!!!

Interview with Nicole Williams:

        First I would like to say thank you once again for taking the time out of your busy life to spend a little time with me. You have been a big help in my journey into the blogging life. I started all this just to say what books I liked and didn’t because I got tired of repeating myself I started a face book page which grew in a month to something I really didn’t expect. So after many PM's about a blog I decided to open one. I really am thankful you were so generous to help me.

When and why did you begin writing?
"I've always been a writer. For as long as I can remember. I wrote because I loved it and I'm still writing because I love it."

What was the hardest part of writing Crash and/or Clash?
"It's so up and down, hot and cold, fire and ice. It's difficult to write such intense stories about such intense people."

 How did you come up with the idea of Jude Ryder and his gray beanie cap?
"I wanted to write a "bad boy" but explore what made the boy go "bad" and Jude gave me the opportunity to do just that. The beanie cap came organically."

How was writing Crash/Clash different than writing the Eden series?
"It was only different in that it was edgier and not set in a paranormal world. Everything else, was very similar. I still wanted to tell a good story, write a great romance, and create memorable characters."

With out giving away to much is there something you can tell us about where Jude and Lucy will be heading?
"I can't say too much, but you can expect another hot, exciting, roller coaster of a ride for Jude and Lucy."

Did you ever think this trilogy (I can say that now) would become as popular as it did?
"No, I didn't. It was my first contemporary romance, so I wasn't sure how my reader base would like it given I'd only written paranormal. It took off right away and the rest is history. "

Do you have any advise for other inspiring writers?(like myself)
"Write and don't give up. It's a marathon, not a sprint!"

Last but not least: This is my favorite question to ask:
Is there a message you want your readers to take at the end that you didn't think a lot of people got? Oh wait I dont think I can ask that its not the end any more. LOL.

Okay than hummm?

If The crash series became a movie who would you want to see play Jude and Lucy?
"I get asked this a lot and it's too hard for me to say. I can't quite find the right actors or actresses. Who do you see playing Jude and Lucy?"
Well Nicole, Again I would like to say Thank You very much......And Good Luck with Crush I can't
 wait to read the next part of Jude and Lucy's Life.
For all who don't know.
Harper Collins has picked up the series and  will be rereleasing both CRASH and CLASH in paperback on December 18th
The third book is entitled CRUSH and will be coming soon to your e-readers and bookstores everywhere.
You can pre order Crash at:

Southpointe High is the last place Lucy wanted to wind up her senior year of school. Right up until she stumbles into Jude Ryder, a guy whose name has become its own verb, and synonymous with trouble. He's got a rap sheet that runs longer than a senior thesis, has had his name sighed, shouted, and cursed by more women than Lucy dares to ask, and lives at the local boys home where disturbed seems to be the status quo for the residents. Lucy had a stable at best, quirky at worst, upbringing. She lives for wearing the satin down on her ballet shoes, has her sights set on Juilliard, and has been careful to keep trouble out of her life. Up until now.

Jude's everything she knows she needs to stay away from if she wants to separate her past from her future. Staying away, she's about to find out, is the only thing she's incapable of.

For Lucy Larson and Jude Ryder, love's about to become the thing that tears them apart.

The only easy thing about Jude and Lucy’s relationship is their love for one another. Everything else is hard.

Especially when it comes to reining in Jude’s trigger touch temper and Lucy’s increasing jealousy of Jude’s Spirit Sister on the cheer squad who’s attached herself to him in just about every way a girl could. Feeling the stress of trying to hang on to her quintessential bad boy while becoming the foremost dancer in her class, Lucy knows something’s going to break. She wants both. She needs both. But if she doesn’t make a choice, she risks losing everything.

For Lucy Larson and Jude Ryder, love might be the thing that just isn’t enough.
