An Unconventional Mr. Peadlebody – Book Tour & Giveaway

An Unconventional Mr. Peadlebody
by D.L. Gardner
Genre: Paranormal Humor
Rockford Peadlebody dies in a train wreck while traveling with his family, (a
rather dysfunctional lot of half-blood vampires) after a flood in
Mississippi washes their home away. Once his brother Gerald, his wife
Ginger, and son Raymond reach grandpa’s estate in Ohio, they are
surprised by the news that grandaddy Benjamin Peadlebody has also
died. They are now heirs to the infamous Peadlebody manor and all its
peculiarities, including the butler, a reserved, tattooed, muscle-man
named Richard Cottlebone,


It seems fishy to Gerald that two untimely deaths in the family happened
within a week. Yes, Rockford’s demise was of his own doing, but
Benjamin’s? Perhaps the butler, knows more than he’s letting on?
To prove himself worthy, since he failed to live up to old Benjamin’s
standards when he was alive, Gerald goes about to unravel the thread
of Papa’s death. No help comes from Ginger. She’s too busy trying to
un-vampire herself. And Raymond is in love, but not with his
relatives. Gerald soon discovers solving a murder mystery meets with
a stone cold reception.
With a passion for a good wholesome story, Gardner dives into the adult
and young adult fantasy genres. She is both a best selling author and
an award winning illustrator who lives in the Pacific Northwest, USA.
Dabbling in screenwriting, she’s won screenings and a trophy for some
of her film projects.

She loves a tale that ignites imaginations, strengthens friendships,
spurs courage and applauds honor. Though she targets her stories for
young adults, her books are enjoyed by all ages.
D.L. Gardner is a columnist for the science fiction and fantasy
publication Amazing Stories Magazine

Wild Hearts – Book Blitz

Wild Hearts
Vivian Wood
Publication date: November 14th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

In order to find love, you must set your heart free.

All her life, Faith has lacked a true, deep connection to someone. Her parents are long buried, her friends are too busy, and all she has is her job in corporate law to make her feel grounded. Each day is like the last with no telling if there will ever be something more for her. When a distant aunt passes away and leaves Faith her land, Faith has to put her empty life on hold and travel across the country to settle the estate.

A West Coast girl used to a fast paced lifestyle, Faith is ready to be entirely unimpressed by what she finds on the Georgia coast. That is, until she meets Alex.

Strong, tall, and decidedly anti-social, Alex is everything that Faith has been dreaming of her whole life. The fact that he scowls as he shows her the wonders of her new land doesn’t bother her… not like seeing him without his shirt does, anyway.

Alex has a lot of ground to cover before he can learn to trust someone again, but Faith is a lovely temptation. Slender, raven-haired, and smart as hell, she calls to him on a primal level… if he can get over the ghosts of his past.

Distrust, uncertainty, fear of change… In order to find their way to each other, they will each have their own demons to overcome.

EXCERPT:

Alex wasn’t sure if she kissed him or if he kissed her. All he knew was that suddenly his lips were on hers, and they were softer and sweeter than he could have ever dreamed.

He felt her hands on his chest, and somehow his arms were around her waist. They fit perfectly in that deep curve right above her hips. He wasn’t sure, but he thought he felt the tip of her tongue against his. Alex let out a noise in the back of his throat.

She closed her eyes as he began to work the lotion into her back. Alex started at her shoulders and slid a finger underneath the strip of her halter top. He worked his way down, across her shoulder blades. She let out a moan as he hit a tense muscle in her lower back.

Alex paused, and a flicker of embarrassment washed over her. She expected him to stop, but instead he did it again, deeper. She moaned again, and the rest of her body started to respond.

His touch didn’t just release that tight muscle in her back. It started a fire throughout her entire body. Damn, she thought. She could drift away, let this man touch her all over like he was touching her right now.

His thumbs expertly glided across her lower back as he worked out the kinks. Faith’s breasts tightened, and she felt her nipples pebble. She sucked in her breath, head bowed, and could see her nipples as they responded to him.

Alex’s gaze dipped down to Faith’s lips, glazed with a gloss and smelling of Christmas. He wished he’d had the time, the mind-set, to enjoy those lips the first time he’d tasted them. His eyes continued downward to her breasts. From this angle, he could see straight down the button-up gingham shirt to the pink lace bra below. Her cleavage was deep and deliciously tempting, though he was disappointed he couldn’t make out her nipples. When they’d hardened in that little swimsuit, he was so turned on he could almost taste them between his lips.

He was tempted to kiss her to the point it was almost unbearable. To nibble on those lips and run a thumb across her breasts. Hell, I even know what she tastes like. But this time it would be different.

“Alex,” she started, but he couldn’t hold himself back anymore. It took less than a second to close the distance between them. His lips were on hers, exploring. Faith parted her lips farther to welcome his tongue against hers. God, she tasted sweet.

With one hand, he cupped her chin upward to him. The other pulled her close against him. His hardness slipped with ease between the heat of her soft thighs. Those little shorts really are good for something besides a tease.

Alex needed more, wanted more, and by the way Faith responded, he knew she did, too. He started to walk her backward, through the open bedroom door.

had great grades, and was on my way to getting a scholarship to one

crazy on me, and I end up in a car with some other guy who claims
magic is real. Crazy, is what I say. Pretty sure he’s out of his
mind. I–

boyfriend got uber possessive on her. Muses inspire the best in
others, and without control over their magic, a Muse can be pretty
addictive to hang around.
Which is why I’m here, to teach Nila how to control that magic so she
doesn’t cause any more problems with the every day humans. See–
–I hate how he says every day humans like I’m not one of them. Oh, and
get this, I apparently can’t touch him, even just a tiny bit, because
we might create magical sparks…or something?–
–Look at all the things she doesn’t know about being a Muse. The sparks
help us find our soul mate. Do I need to explain why I don’t need her
touching me right now? We just met. Besides, it’s common courtesy.
Keep your hands to yourself.

Into the Night (Killer Instinct) Review

Into the Night (Killer Instinct) by [Eden, Cynthia]

Title: Into The Night | Author: Cynthia Eden

Series: Killer Instinct #3 | Pages: 384  | Genre: Romantic Suspense

Publisher: HQN Books  | Publication Date: December 26, 2017

Sold by: Harlequin Digital Sales Corp.

Two FBI agents are caught in a merciless vigilante’s crosshairs in New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden’s electric Killer Instinct series

Sheltered in the shadows of the Smoky Mountains is the suspect who’s summoned FBI agent Macey Night’s fears to the surface. Every day that the “Profiler,” a vigilante serial killer, escapes justice is another day she’s reminded of what it is to be a ruthless predator’s prey. Capturing him is a craving deeper than anything she’s felt in a long time. But Agent Bowen Murphy, equal parts sexy and volatile, seems hell-bent on changing that. Working together—needing, living and breathing each other—they’re entwined to distraction.

Bowen’s used to operating on impulse: act, don’t feel. Now Macey and the controlled terror behind her beautiful eyes have him rethinking everything, including his rule to never get close to a colleague. He’s willing to fight for a future with Macey, but the consequences of love could be deadly.

I went into this book knowing only one thing. Cynthia Eden wrote this book. I have read most of everything she has written, but never one of her dark thrillers. I never got the chance to read the first two titles, but thanks to Harlequin, I had the pleasure to read Into The Night.

Into The Night drew you into the world where everything was not what it seemed and everyone was not what they appear to be. This story had so many twist and turns. The body counts were stacking up, and only one team could stop a vigilante killer that seems to be out killing serial killers. But, that wasn’t good enough for this vigilante killer. He wanted to put his skills against, one of the best team that ever was. Can the team of Macey and Bowen catch this killer before another victim is found?

I wish I can give this book more than 5 stars. The plot was enthralling, and the suspense was spellbinding. Into the Night had you guessing right up until the very last page. Can you say I didn’t see that ending coming, I assumed I guessed the identity of the villain of this story, by the introduction of the character. However, with this story having so many plot twists, I found myself second guessing at times. To me, this story is most certainly a keeper, one I will find myself reading several more times before I got enough of reading it.
I must find time to read the other books in this series. But for now, Into the Night certainly, deserve every bit of the 5 stars and more.
