Taran Wird, who commands the power to wield fire and lightning, is an oddity in the supernatural world. But neither Taran nor her unique sisters compare to the bizarre entity known as Destiny. And Taran is assigned to protect her.

Born of two witches, Destiny is revered among the supernatural elite for her acute ability to predict the future. Her biggest prophecy involves Taran’s sister, Celia, whom Destiny decreed will bear children strong enough to take on the evil that’s rising. Yet Destiny is not alone in her predictions, or individuality.

When Johnny Fate, a rock star among humans and a male version of Destiny is discovered, his powers and Destiny’s clash, triggering the start of Destiny’s demise and altering the fate of Celia’s unborn children.

Taran, her werewolf lover Gemini, and their allies must determine if it’s Fate who will decide what will become of Celia’s children, or if their lives and the world will perish with Destiny.

OF FLAME AND FATE Excerpt

Copyright © 2017 Cecy Robson

 

I’m shoved into a cold room where a band of bloodsucking fiends tear off my clothes. Their long nails graze my skin as their master watches, his cold gray eyes glinting with malice.

“Son of a bitch,” I say, smacking Edith Anne’s hand away when she cops a feel. “The demon’s in my leg, not my tit!”

There’s something you don’t say every day, but then that’s why humans are safe in the world and weird gals like me are stuck with demons burrowing under their skin.

“Just making sure,” Edith adds with a wink.

I’m ready to punch her in the face, except I’m too busy cringing at the thing crawling beneath the length of my shin, its spindly insectoid appendages stretching the skin as it curls up and over my knee cap.

“Get it out of me!” I screech, growing nauseous with each numbing tug it creates beneath the underlying tissue.

“We’re trying,” Agnes Concepcion snaps, like I’m somehow inconveniencing her by having an evil being claw its way through me.

Her tiny plaid skirt smacks against my hip as she shoves me into a massive glass and tile shower. Three other vamps, dressed like naughty Catholic schoolgirls (don’t get me started) follow us in, bottles of champagne tight in their grips.

“What the hell?” I ask, kicking as if I can somehow shake this thing loose, and certain the booze is to celebrate my grisly death.

Bottles of champagne open with a pop, the naughty Catholics pouring the bubbly over my breasts, back, and ass. This isn’t real. This is something out of a bad porno and somehow I’m the star.

But as the fluid reaches my thigh the lump with the creepy legs bounces, pulling at the muscle it’s crawling over, squirming to the left then right, trying find its way around the torrent of liquid they’re pelting me with.

“Don’t let it reach her heart,” Master Vampire Misha Aleksandr orders from the opposite side of the bathroom.

“What’s it going to do to my heart?” My head whips back and forth when none of the vamps answer. “It’s going eat my freaking heart isn’t it?”

“Don’t be ridiculous,” Agnes mutters, adjusting her tiny librarian glasses as she angles the bottle she’s holding.

“Okay . . .” I begin.

“It needs your heart to nest and lay its eggs,” she explains.

What?”

“But yeah, then the hatchlings will munch on your heart like raw steak,” Edith adds. She reels me around when additional vamps swoop in with cases of wine, drenching my chest with more alcohol.

She seems to be having fun. I’m mostly trying not to hurl and wondering how the hell this happens to me.

Agnes is more focused. She drips the wine just above the demon, forcing it back down my leg. “Quiesco,” she says, her tone as sharp and commanding. “Quiesco.”

My body shudders as the demon scurries downward. Its movement doesn’t hurt, surprising since I think it has pinchers, but the yanking motion is unnerving, like getting stitches while under anesthesia. My head flops forward and my vision starts to swim.

“I don’t feel good,” I mumble.

Agnes slaps me, the sting of the strike causing my eyes to whip open. “Don’t fall asleep.” She slaps me again when my eyelids flutter and close. “Taran, the poison the demon is spewing is numbing your skin and making you drowsy, if you succumb to it the alcohol won’t work and the demon will take you.”

Again, her palm whips across my face. “Stay awake so we can cut this thing out of you.”

I slap her back, knocking her glasses askew. “I’m awake, damn it.”

She smirks because she hits harder and maybe because she likes it, too. She returns to my leg when the vamp behind her hands her another bottle of champagne. “Quiesco,” she whispers against my leg, her breath hot against my cooling skin.

My head falls forward as I start to go under. This time, Edith smacks me.

“God damn it,” I hiss, my right arm quaking and threatening to release my flame.

“I was just taking my turn,” she replies defensively.

Her gaze locks on my arm. She eases away as a spark of blue and white escapes from my fingertips, giving me and my power ample space as the surrounding vamps shower me with alcohol.

“Master,” Agnes says, ignoring us as she concentrates on my thigh. “It’s settling. I need the knife.”

“The wolves are bringing it,” he replies.

“The wolves?” I ask. Okay. Now I’m wide awake.

Storm Gathering (The Scorpius Syndrome Book 4)

Storm Gathering (The Scorpius Syndrome Book 4) by [Zanetti, Rebecca]Storm Gathering

Rating:

Author: Rebecca Zanetti

Series: Scorpius Syndrome

Print Length: 359 Pages

Publication Date: September 19, 2017


Even before surviving the Scorpius bacterium, Greyson Storm was a lone wolf navigating minefields. As a kid, he learned to take a hit and find safety. As an adult, he joined the military and quickly learned how to protect and defend. When the world ended, he created a mercenary camp with military precision, no entanglements, and a promise to avenge a fallen friend. As part of that vow, he kidnapped Maureen Shadow, but now that he has let her go, her blue eyes and intriguing mind keep haunting him…

As possibly the only Biotechnology Engineer still living, Maureen Shadow might be humanity’s one hope to survive the aftermath of Scorpius, making her frighteningly valuable to both allies and enemies. Even after sexual tension explodes between her and Greyson, she’s not sure which camp he belongs to—friend or foe? Worse yet, survival may mean thwarting his prime mission, putting her in even more peril. When danger and seduction collide, there is no safety in this new world.

If the Scorpius Syndrome should happen tomorrow, and you were one of the survivors which side would you be on? I want to believe that I would be on the side that would fight for a cure. Storm Gathering is a work of fiction. It is not too often that we come across fiction especially in a romance that the heavy topic of death and how one can change society if we all just work together.

Storm Gathering is book # 4 in Rebecca Zanetti’s thriller post-apocalyptic romance The Scorpius Syndrome. Maureen Shadow may be the only Biotechnology Engineer left living and the most valuable to both allies and enemies.

If you haven’t read book three, Maureen Shadow was kidnapped by Greyson Storm to keep a vow to a dead friend. But later he let her go. But by then the attraction for Maureen just grew to where he couldn’t stop thinking about her. And now that there is finally a chance for him to keep his promise, he must decide if a promise to a dead friend is worth risking what he hopes to gain with Maureen.

I am really enjoying this series, and without a doubt, Storm Gathering fits right in with the others in this series. What I love the most about this story is all the characters from the previous story made their appearance. Also, this series feels like one big movie just without the movie screen. Storm Gathering will have you thinking, cheering and crying until the very last page has been turned.

So, after you read Storm Gathering if Scorpius Syndrome should happen tomorrow what side would you take.

I would recommend Storm Gathering for any hard-core Science Fiction lover how also love a good romance.

The Dark Side
Nocturnal Secrets Book 1
by Cyci Cade
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: Sept 19th, 2017

Picture

After hours zigzagging through the streets, he realizes that he is in front of his uncle’s grave. A man—stopped next to him he doesn’t know how long—speaks to him.
“Are they your relatives?”
“What?” It is hard for Ivor to understand words pronounced so fast.
“The grave…” The man points to the grave with his head. “Are they your relatives?”
“My uncle and aunt,” Ivor answers, eyes still fixed on the names sculpted on the grave.
“You must like them very much to be in a cemetery at dawn.”
“They were my only family.” For the first time, Ivor faces the man who seems to study him carefully and to try to understand Ivor´s last words.
“Don’t you have a father, brother, any other relative?” the stranger insists.
“Why are you so interested?” distrustful, Ivor asks.
“I don´t have a family either.” The man raises his brows revealing an abnormal curiosity.
The stranger’s glance makes Ivor return to reality and notice his imprudence; it is as if somebody throws him into a cold lake. What is he doing in a cemetery at that time? How did he arrive there? Who is that man? The gravedigger? It is the strangest and most dangerous situation.
In silence, Ivor turns his back to the stranger and hurries to the exit; however, the man follows him. He looks over his shoulder and, to his surprise, the man moves faster, he is approaching Ivor.
A few feet from the gate, the stranger appears in front of him, suddenly blocking his way. With his arms crossed, legs shoulder width apart, and his chin lifted, the man looks taller than Ivor had noticed.
A few feet from the man, Ivor halts his pace and looks to the sides seeking for some possible accomplices. Ivor has a chance against one man; he can win that fight.
He puffs his chest and asks in a rude tone, “What do you want? Money? I will tell you that I have only some pennies in my pocket and I don’t have anything valuable.”
“Do you think I am an insignificant cemetery thief?” His laughter echoes among the graves giving the false sensation that many people are laughing at the same time.
Ivor is bewildered due to the man’s reaction; if that isn´t a robbery, what is that then? After some minutes watching the amusement of the stranger with his fear, Ivor decides to confront him, so he moves forward three steps.
“Get out! I want to leave!” he orders.
The man stops laughing, narrows his eyebrows, and leans forward. “I didn’t finish yet.”
Without Ivor notice the movement, the stranger holds his arm and buries his teeth in his flesh. The pain is unbearable as a scorpion´s bite, as if a scorching liquid was being injected into his body. His muscles tense, frozen, and spasms interrupt his breathing. His vision darkens, and his senses abandon him.

Aidan Bloodlocke never dreamed he was a wolf Shifter, much less an Alpha.
When a pack takes him in, his entire world changes, and loyalties are
developed. Then disaster strikes, and he’s on a ruthless mission
for justice.
When veterinarian Maddie Ardelle moved to Bridgepoint, Maine, to start a
normal, peaceful life on her own, she didn’t expect to get herself
caught in the crossfire of two factions of violent, feuding
werewolves. And definitely not entangled with a sexy biker shifter
that made her weak in the knees. Against their will, Maddie and
Aidan’s worlds collide, and with an attraction so enthralling, both
are helpless to resist.
As Aidan struggles to fight for both love and duty, he uncovers a
betrayal so heinous, it puts the lives of his entire pack and the
brave woman he desires at unthinkable risk. The stakes are high, and
both must decide if Maddie ultimately can live in his violent world
of teeth and claw in this action-packed paranormal romance series!

“There’s something intriguing about strong women finding love in all the
“wrong” places in the world of fantasy. Of angels, demons,
ghosts, werewolves and your occasional blood sucker, all these
paranormal metaphors are catalysts of what humans are and crave
most…that we’re all different, beautiful and a little bit
weird–and just want someone to love us for who we are.”

Mated In Treason – Book Tour & Giveaway

Kan Asma Vampires Book 1
by Christa Paige
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Welcome to the world of the Kan Asma Vampires. The Kan Asma are genetically
modified humans who’ve become vampires. For centuries, the Kan Asma
lived symbiotically with their human neighbors until the government
recognized something had increased their life spans. Scientists and
militia stormed their quiet Abkhazian village and betrayal followed.
Many vampires experienced brutality and torture. Others died from
experimentation. After a perilous journey, the surviving Kan Asma
fled their homeland and settled in West Hollywood, California. The
refugees cling to their sacred traditions, holding their mating rites
above all others because without them, their numbers would diminish.
There is no love or emotion in their Council-determined matings. Now,
their quiet lives have suddenly been turned upside down. Lines have
been drawn between the wealthy aristocrats and an uprising determined
to halt the unfair ritual keeping wealth and power out of reach.
Those who are lucky to find love in these matches are very few, and
they will have to fight with everything they have in order to claim
their mates or suffer a broken heart for eternity.


When the kraliyet bodyguard ended up in her hospital bed after an
explosion left him in critical condition, Nadia tried to warn herself
not to fall in love with him. After all, she’s no vampire Cinderella,
and happily-ever-afters didn’t happen to low-born females of the Kan
Asma. But her heart wouldn’t listen, and soon she wanted to claim
Gunnar as her forever mate, even if it meant taking him the only way
possible, as a husband in a disgraceful human ceremony.
Gunnar fell in love with his nurse the moment he saw her smile. He yearned
to claim her as his, but the Council would never allow him to mingle
his powerful blood with a female from a poor family. The penalty for
an unsanctioned mating is a death sentence. He doesn’t care about
the threats and possible consequences of making her his. Though, due
to the high probability of genetic incompatibility, he can’t complete
their blood-bond without knowing if it might take her life. Losing
her would be worse than torture.
Their only hope lies with the treasonous Faction hell-bent on destroying
the very people Gunnar calls family. Determined to find a way to be
mated, Gunnar seeks out the leader of this hidden uprising. Together,
Nadia and Gunnar must break every law and rite of their vampire
culture to become bonded for life. Gunnar will play a deadly game of
subversion or pay a blood price that would sever him from their
people and put a bounty on his head. They must survive a dangerous
infiltration of the Faction, because they’ll do anything to be
together, even if it means being mated in treason.

My Next Breath (The Obsidian Files Book 2) by [McKenna, Shannon]My Next Breath

Rating:

Author: Shannon McKenna

Series: Obsidian Files

Print Length: 293 Pages

Publication Date: August 29, 2017


Zade Ryan. Rebel supersoldier. Nearly superhuman. On a desperate quest to rescue his missing brother Luke by any means possible. To do it, he must seduce the elusive Simone Brightman, inventor of the ingenious and deadly tech used to capture Luke and hold him prisoner, location unknown. Zade will do whatever it takes to get close to Simone. Her mysterious beauty and highly sexual allure have him at a disadvantage, but time is running out . . .
Simone is fighting battles of her own, on her own. Until Zade—six foot four of sinewy muscle and lethal combat skills—rescues her from street thugs and leaves her breathless. His smoldering black eyes and overpowering sensuality—and his seductive invitation to spend one wild, unforgettable night with him—prove too tempting to resist. Their passionate encounter unleashes scorching desire that neither can control—leaving them vulnerable to their enemies who watch from the shadows and wait. And when they are lured into a trap by a monstrous killer hellbent on their destruction, they must fight with every weapon they have to save Luke, and each other.
Because one night together could never be enough—and they might not live to have another . . .

My Next Breath is the 2nd installment in Shannon McKenna series The Obsidian Files. I am learning these books must be read in the order of publication. If you read the first book. Then you will know that Simone was the woman with Noah when he first glanced upon Caro.
Well, now we will learn Simone story. Simone is the inventor of the tech that captured Luke in Right Through Me. Matter effect she is the inventor of almost everything that is being used against Zade and his fellow super-soldiers. However, she is unaware that the tech she builds is being used for something totally than what she invented them for.
But she will come to find out with the help of Zade Ryan, a Rebel who is out to find his brother and if possible take Obsidian down along the way.
I am so into this series. My Next Breath just like Right Through Me was fast paced, and intense romantic suspense. Some characters from the previous books make appearances, the chemistry between Simone and Zade was truly hot. After finishing reading My Next Breath, I am so ready for the 3rd book.

MY NEXT BREATH

Copyright © Shannon McKenna 2017

Damn, now he’d lost the sound thread again.  He reached for it—listening harder . . . yes. Rubber boot soles on the wet pavement. He’d know that little squeaky-squeak song anywhere. He’d memorized its exact rhythm and pitch.

Less than a block away now. He was already getting a whiff of her. Warm, female smells. He seriously dug that honeysuckle shampoo. Couldn’t wait to sniff it at close range.

He stepped out of the shadow of the awning. Raised his hand to signal the men waiting down the street. One raised his hand in response. They were ready. She was an easy target, parking an almost new Audi on a badly lit street like this.

His heart raced as his augmented sensory processor kicked into high gear, as if revving for combat. Which was overkill. He didn’t need an ASP jolt for this. The Obsidian researchers had wired him and rewired him during the Midlands experiments on their quest to produce the ultimate, relentless war machine. The data that speed-scrolled over his field of vision whenever he was stressed was a constant reminder of how they’d changed him. Permanently.

But he ignored it. He’d stolen himself back. He and all the rest of the Midlanders. He was more than what Obsidian had tried to make of him. Fuck them all.

Tonight—for her—he needed to be funny, smart and unthreatening, for starters. And good in bed, if he got lucky. Past experience suggested that he would. It was bad form to get cocky about it, but whatever. A guy could hope.

In fact, he quivered with hope. Watching Simone for two whole months had kept him perpetually half-hard. It wasn’t like she was doing anything sexy. On the contrary. She mostly just sat there on the bed, cross-legged in a thick snarl of wires and cables, surrounded by screens, dressed in leggings and a sweatshirt. Braless. Eyes narrowed with ferocious concentration as she typed so fast and hard the detached wireless keyboard bounced against the mattress.

He was in a groove with surveillance monitoring. Forget sleep. Pill-induced or natural, it wasn’t happening while he was watching that woman. And after their escape from Obsidian’s research facility at Midlands, he’d sworn never to inflict sentinel sleep on himself again. Constant vigilance turned the strongest into short-circuited robots. It didn’t matter how skillful he was at alternating his brain hemispheres, resting one while using the other and blah-blah-di-fucking-blah.

He was good at it, yeah. And so? He was good at a metric fuckton of unspeakable things. That didn’t mean he would ever do them again.

But he’d do any number of unspeakable things for a chance to know what happened to his brother. Watching Brightman prance around in her underwear was no chore. She was so damn pretty it just turned his head around.

She was almost upon him. His ASP processor sent a fire-hose of data scrolling wildly up both sides of his field of vision. His senses sharpened to a level beyond painful. He hadn’t expected this. Bullshit timing.

Her footsteps echoed in his ears, boom-scrape-squeak. Her soft breathing, the quick and steady drum of her heart. He smelled the warm mix of her hand lotion, her wool coat, the leather of her boots, the swish of her long skirt, the brush of the tights between her thighs. He smelled the coffee she’d had not long ago and a hint of the vanilla flavored creamer she’d lightened it with. Whiffs of the perfume she used to wear back in her corporate days wafted out of her purse like little ghosts.

He also smelled the festering mouth-breathers who waited across the street.

His heart thudded loudly. In a few seconds he’d see Simone in the flesh. The mysterious ex-fianceé of Noah Gallagher, Zade’s friend and fellow Midlander rebel.

A woman who might or might not hold the key to the last possible clue that could lead him to his brother.

Or to his brother’s bones.

 That thought stabbed through him like a thin blade of ice just as Simone Brightman rounded the corner and hit his line of vision.

Shannon McKenna

Biography

Shannon McKenna is the NYT bestselling author of sixteen action packed, turbocharged romantic thrillers, among which are the stories of the wildly popular McCloud series and the brand new paranormal series, The Obsidian Files. She loves tough and heroic alpha males, heroines with the brains and guts to match them, villains who challenge them to their utmost, adventure, scorching sensuality, and most of all, the redemptive power of true love. Since she was small she has loved abandoning herself to the magic of a good book, and her fond childhood fantasy was that writing would be just like that, but with the added benefit of being able to take credit for the story at the end. Alas, the alchemy of writing turned out to be messier than she’d ever dreamed. But what the hell, she loves it anyway, and hopes that readers enjoy the results of her alchemical experiments. She loves to hear from her readers.
