American Girl on Saturn By Nikki Godwin

American Girl on SaturnThe summer after graduation is supposed to be that first real taste of  freedom – but not for eighteen-year-old Chloe Branson. Just as that  breeze of freedom is making its way into her galaxy, her  secret-service-agent dad drops a meteor-sized bomb of bad news on her  and her sisters. An attempt has been made on the lives of Canadian  boyband, Spaceships Around Saturn, during their USA tour, and the guys  have to go into hiding ASAP. The only problem? In the midst of the  crisis and media frenzy, their dad volunteered to hide the guys…in  their house.

Six-year-old Emery is as ecstatic as any  self-proclaimed Saturnite would be, but Chloe and her seventeen-year-old sister Aralie watch their summer plans crash and burn like a falling  star. The SAS guys aren’t happy with the situation, either. Bad boy  Jules picks fights with Aralie about everything from his Twitter  followers to his laundry, and heart-throb Benji can’t escape Emery’s  fangirlisms for more than three minutes.

But after the super-cute  Milo kisses Chloe during a game of hide-and-seek, she finally  understands what Emery means when she talks about SAS being “out of this world.” If this is what Saturn feels like, Chloe doesn’t want to come  back to Earth.

First I Love You by Genevieve Dewey

First I Love YouOne part Godfather, two parts Emma and a dash of Casablanca mixed together, “First, I Love You” isn’t a detective novel, a gangster novel, a mystery, a romance or a family saga. It’s a little of all of the above.

Imagine being a detective with a mobster for a father, or a mobster with a  straight arrow, good cop for a son. This is a relationship that is  tricky on its best day. Add in some well-meaning meddling from a mob  princess sister, an arrogant DEA agent, and gangsters running a human  trafficking ring and you have a recipe for a book that refuses to follow the rules. Told from the perspective and point of view of each the six  main characters this is the first novel in a trilogy about love,  loyalty, revenge and redemption.

Omaha Detective Tommy Gates has  kept his gangster father at arm’s length his whole life. Mickey Downey  has spent the better part of the last two decades trying to find ways to get back the son he lost through Witness Protection. Now Tommy has  taken an opportunity to work on a Federal Human Trafficking Joint Task  Force in Chicago where his father lives. Tommy’s sister Kiki and his  mother Mary see this as an opportunity to build a relationship between  the two. Tommy’s new DEA partner James Hoffman sees it as an opportunity to gain leverage over Mickey Downey. Tommy’s other partner, FBI Agent  Ginny Sommers wants to keep Tommy’s family as far from the case as  possible. When Kiki and James join forces, sparks fly and it sets fire  to a maelstrom of unexpected consequences for everyone involved.

Still haunted by her domineering and abusive stepfather and driven by a  life-long search for her missing younger brother, Sara finds herself  caught in the crossfire between warring forces, powerful beyond human  comprehension, that threaten to plunge civilisation into hellish chaos  and eternal darkness.

This, the first in the ‘Angels of York’  series, follows Sara’s increasingly dangerous adventures during the six  days that lead up to the September Equinox, a time of increasing  darkness.

Deer in the Headlights by Staci Hart

Deer in the Headlights

Sweary, Sexy 18+ Romance

How do the Greek gods kill time? Because they’re always bored. It’s an  unavoidable downside of being alive for thousands of years. So, they  play games. Games with human players. Remember Shakespeare? Yeah, that  was Apollo. Bonnie and Clyde? Aphrodite vs Ares.

It’s Aphrodite’s  turn once again in the rounds of competitions, and she’ll defend her  domain: Love. She hasn’t lost a competition on her turf in over three  millennia, and she’s not about to start now. Apollo is her first  competitor, and he’s on a mission to win. If he wins, he’ll get a token; a favor that Aphrodite must fulfill. And with that favor, he’ll finally get the one woman he’s never been able to have.

Aphrodite and  Apollo will choose their human players, and if Aphrodite can’t get them  together before the clock runs out, Apollo will get his way. And she  couldn’t have that.

Lex and Dean are perfect for each other. They just don’t know it yet.

Dean is a perpetual bachelor, and a man-whore. A brooding, gorgeous, rock  star man-whore. Lex always has a boyfriend, but she’s never let anyone  in enough to let herself go. Not really. Not ever. Aphrodite has her  work cut out for her, but if she can’t make it work, no one can.

But she has more at stake than just Lex and Dean. Apollo killed her mortal  love, and that beef has been dragging on for thousands of years. Ares,  the douchebag, is forever trying to start a fight, and get Aphrodite  into bed. And Persephone, her best friend, is the one person she can  confide in, laugh with, and always count on for a healthy helping of  bacon when she’s having a bad day.

Follow the gods as they fight, laugh, cry, lose love, and gain power. Making a mess with humans has never been so fun.

 Snake in the Grass by Staci Hart

Snake in the GrassIt’s Round Two of high stakes Love Connection on Olympus, and this time, everything has changed. For Aphrodite, at least.

Ares is on deck, and Aphrodite is nervous. As much as she loves to hook up  with him, she doesn’t trust him as far as she could throw him, which  isn’t very far. He’s a big dude. They haven’t been together in a very  long time, but she can’t resist him. She never could. Even when every  part of her screamed that he was a liar.

Ares has a plan to keep  Aphrodite, for good this time. He wants to win the game, but he’ll hold  back to get what he wants. He’s sitting on a chance that he’s been  waiting thousands of years for, and he’ll do what he has to do to  convince her to stay forever.

The only thing that could stop him  is the secret that he’s been keeping from her for eons. If she finds  out, it will destroy everything.

Kat and Dillon have been through a lot, and everything has been to protect their younger siblings. They  have sacrificed everything to make sure their brother and sister are  safe. The players are tough and loyal. Fierce and determined. But they  become each other’s weakness, even though they fight it, and even though it means danger for Kat and her sister.

If Aphrodite can get the  players over their egos and issues long enough to see that they’re meant for each other, the competition will be a piece of cake. One that  she’ll eat a la mode, right in front of Ares, if she beats him.

Aphrodite can’t stand that he’s so miserable, and Hera, the goddess of marriage and monogamy, has a strong hold on Yuki, who  will do whatever it takes to get what she believes is hers. Aphrodite  won’t sit by and watch Katsu’s life slip away with no chance at love, so when he takes a trip to Vegas, she’ll introduce him to his match.

Kim never thought she’d be in the situation like the one that’s coming her  way, but what the heart wants is a powerful thing, and one that’s  impossible to walk away from.

Romancing September – author Sonya Loveday (Day 21)

Day 21 of the Romancing September Across the World Tour, today our guest is Sonya Loveday (What better name could you have for a romance author?) Meet Sonya here and then in a few hours catch up with her again as she talks about writing romance in today’s society with Stephanie over in Georgia USA.

Sonya Loveday

Let’s go and find out more about Sonya;

1) Where is your hometown?

I currently reside in Central Florida in a ‘small’ town called St. Cloud. I was born in Presque Isle, Maine and wish for the weather they have. Florida heat is brutal in the summer.

2) How long have you been writing?

I’ve been actively writing since 2009. I started writing Casted along side of another book that is written but not finished, if that makes sense. I picked Casted back up around April 2012 and completed it.

3) Have you always written romance?

I’ve always had some sort of romance that goes along with the storyline. Since Casted is officially my first published novel I guess you could say yes.

4) Your book cover is gorgeous! What made you chose purple?

Thank you! Ravven is ahhhhmazing! I gave her a brief description of what I wanted the cover to look like and then handed the creative controls over to her. I actually had a choice between blue or purple. Now, besides the fact that purple is my favourite colour, I also associate purple with magic. The choice was, at that point, a no brainer. She totally rocked it out and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome!

5) Ooh Magic! Tell us about the background of the spell book in your story.

Ah, the ancient spell book…

The book itself belonged to Elinor. It was, back then, a way to record her spells. It also became her prison for hundreds of years.

6) Can Jade do magic? Is she a witch or a spell caster? What would you call her?

Poor Jade, she’s had a pretty hard life. Both her parents were killed when she was a young girl. Her bloodline-so to speak-is split between the Original Coven and the Triad. Jade finds out the hard way just how powerful of a spell caster she is as things heat up for her.

7) Who are the Triad? Whom do they represent?

When the Original Coven was formed a select few were unhappy with the restraints put upon them. They broke off from the Original Coven and called themselves The Triad. Their goal was to take out the Original coven and gain full control of all magic users. Those who were sought out by the Triad had one choice, join or die.

8) You’ve woven a complicated love interest into the tale, can we expect some sparks?

But of course! With magic, there’s always sparks!

9) What can we expect from Elinor?

She’s pretty intense. Being trapped in a book will do that to you. Her main objective is to eliminate the Triad. Her focus is set on Lorenzo, the Triad leader. She will force her will on Jade to see the end of the evil that caused so much grief in her life.

10) This is the first book in “The Casted” series, have you a title for the second book? When do you expect it to be available for fans?

For now, I’m using the working title “Spelled”, not sure if that will stick since I’m only a few chapters in to the actual writing. It has a huge possibility of changing. I’m looking at the end of the year to have it completed.

On a side note…if you’ve read Casted, I left you with a huge cliff hanger that will jump right into the next book. I will also take the time to apologize now, knowing you will be shouting at me and your books/e-readers with the next one. You’ve been warned. *Insert evil laugh here*

Casted

You can check out “Casted” at Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com

A very big Thank you to Sonya for joining us on the blog today, Good Luck with the new book. Here’s the link to Stephanie’s blog once more http://stephanie-hurt.com/
