Ashton Garrison walked away from a privileged life in order to hide from the one thing she's not willing to face. She knows she left behind a trail of pain, but in the long run, her betrayal will hurt less than the truth. She now has one goal: Live life to the fullest with no regrets and no attachments. She has high hopes that a move to new surroundings will provide the escape she desires, but what Ashton doesn't count on is how fate always seems to find a way to screw up any good plan. Sometimes, when love comes knocking, the pull is too strong not to answer. Suddenly, what she thought she wanted to escape from is what Ashton now wants more than anything.

Nathan Lockton has one mission: find his target and complete the task he was hired to do—no attachments and no emotion necessary. He's done it over and over again. What he thought was a typical lost-and-found job has turned into a life examining moment as Nathan is forced to deal with something he has always ignored--his feelings. Now faced with a decision, Nathan must choose to either follow his heart or complete the job.

Love can come when you least expect it. The question is: If the odds are stacked against you, how far are you willing to go for the one you love?

Take it from me peeps this is another show stopper from Tiffany! I loved, loved, loved Nathan! Don't let the title fool you, this book will leave you securely attached...and possibly in tears on multiple occasions. 
Here's some jams to get you in that lovin' feeling! ;)

Let's get started with this wicked cover...

Witches like Ruby and Courtney can take care of themselves. So when Courtney is murdered, Ruby’s world crashes to a halt. The only thing keeping her grounded is the return of Courtney’s brother, Cooper. He seeks revenge, but Ruby wants to help other witches stay alive. To do that, she’ll have to reunite with her old coven’s High Priest, who also happens to be her cheating ex-boyfriend.

If that wasn’t awkward enough, when the killer gets too close, Cooper temporarily moves into Ruby’s place while a police officer tails her every move. Cooper’s presence distracts Ruby as they fight their desire against their need to stay safe. Then Courtney begins to haunt Ruby’s dreams and secrets are spilled, things from Cooper’s past that could get them both killed. The killer continues to stalk Ruby and the more she discovers, the more she fears she won’t be able to keep her heart in her chest.

Witch Hearts will keep you on the edge of your seating as you unravel the mystery behind witch killer and if that's not enough you have Cooper. *sigh* I'm no witch but that dang Cooper had my heart from the git go. And Ruby she rocks too! So, take it from me you want to spend some quality time with them!

Now, here's some jams that should set the mood for this read...

  Now how about another giveaway?! And as if a chance at winning Witch Hearts is not enough, Liz's other novel Gifted is FREE! But hurry it's only for a limited time.

Michele G. Miller's Never Let You Fall Release Partay!

The lovely cover...

Orphaned at 7, with no memory of her past or the family she lost, 17 year old Skye Martin is tired of being alone and afraid. After a hard night of partying, Skye wakes up alone in an unfamiliar hotel. All she can remember is the deep voice of her rescuer and his promise: “I am safe.”

Xander has been tasked with watching Skye from afar for the past two years, in order to keep her safe from the demons that hunt her. An easy job - until a pair of red glowing eyes reveal themselves to Skye, and Xander, in a moment of weakness, is forced to break his cover to protect her.

Never good at trusting people, Skye is inexplicably drawn to Xander and the immediate bond she feels for him. However, Xander is filled with secrets and ties to her past that threaten to thrust Skye into a world she could never imagine existed…

As she begins to unravel the truth about who Xander is and the details surrounding her family, she discovers that she might just be the key to saving everything... 

And, most importantly, she finds that there has always been someone by her side who would never let her fall…

You MUST read this! MUST! Xander is amazing and contrary to the title I fell instantly in love with him...his courage, his bravery, his loyalty, and of course his sexiness! ;) Now, Michele has decided to share a special treat for us partygoers! Woo hoo! Okay, settle in and get yourself a taste of Never Let You Fall....

Popping awake, I found Xander hovering over me with a worried look on his face.

“Xander?  What’s wrong?”

“What’s wrong?  You tell me!  You were mumbling in your sleep and it woke me up.  When I looked over at you, I saw that you were shaking uncontrollably.  I was on my way to cover you when I saw that you were crying.”  

He stroked the damp hair from my face and I felt the wetness of tears I didn’t know I’d shed.

“Oh,” I sighed.  “I’m sorry for waking you.  I’m fine, really.”  I placed my hand on his cheek to soothe his worried expression and attempted to reassure him.  “I promise.  I was just dreaming, I guess…and I am cold, but I’m okay.”

“Come here, then.”  His voice was ragged and filled with sleep as he held his hand out and pulled me up.  He wrapped his arms around me and rubbed my back, letting me tuck my cold fingers in between our bodies to get warm. 

“Come lay with me by the fire,” he whispered into my ear, his hot breath causing me to shiver more.  I could only nod at his suggestion.  He bent down, picked up my thin blanket and pulled me over to his makeshift pallet.  As we walked by the small fire that he had been attending, he dropped a log onto it.

Xander had been sleeping propped up against a tree.  He sat back down, pulling me to sit in front of him, and covered me with both of our blankets.  The fire was close enough to cast a glow over us and to slightly warm the blankets. 

Xander’s chest was warm, and I found my fingers creeping into the tunic he wore as I tried to search out that heat.  He leapt a bit when my icy fingers found his skin, and I heard him suck in his breath.

“Sorry,” I whispered, pulling them back.

“No,” he whispered back.  His hands found my wrists and he guided my hands back onto his chest.  “Stay there.  Warm up your hands, Skye.  They’re freezing!”

The intimacy of pressing my fingers to his bare chest was warming me up faster than he knew.  One arm was wrapped around my shoulder, pulling me tightly into him, while his fingers aimlessly traced circles over my upper arm.  Even through the fabric of my dress and cape, his gentle touch sent shock waves through my body.

*Fan self* Well, I hope that wet your whistle! Now, how about some tunes?

And last but not least the final giveaway of the block partay...your chance to win Never Let You Fall!

I'm Baaaaacccckkkk! ;)

I’m baaaaaacccckkkkk! Woo hoo! That’s right my lovelies I am back and boy do I have all sorts of fun things in store! I’ve successfully survived another tax season and wrapped up my MBA (I graduate this Saturday…Yay me!) so now that means it’s time to have a life again, which means lots of reading, writing, and blogging! I’m a free bird…I can barely contain myself! *spins around in desk chair with excitement*

In case you’ve been living under a rock (like I have been for the past few months), there are three awesome releases hitting the shelves this week and I've had the amazing honor to sneak a peek beforehand and let me tell you these three books are soooo gooood! No. Joke. So, to celebrate my return to the world of the reading/blogging/living, we are having a mega awesome block partay right here starting tomorrow!!!! Woop! Woop!

We’ll be sharing excerpts, jams, and of course there will be giveaways! So, who will be stopping by? We’ve got Tiffany King and her latest release No Attachments where you’ll get to meet Nathan…he’s amazing and enjoys bike riding. ;) (Read the book, you’ll get my joke.)

Then, we’ve got Liz Long with Witch Hearts…even if she hadn’t casted my celebrity husband Jensen Ackles as Cooper in her made for TV movie, I’d still be swooning. Cooper is most certainly the sexiest witch I’ve ever had the pleasure to dream about. ;) *Sigh*

And finally we’ve got my gal, Michele (single L) G. Miller and her debut novel Never Let You Fall. That title is clearly deceiving because I fell for Xander within the first few pages…he can be my Guardian any day. Oh. My. Goodness. *Fans self*

As you can see you DO NOT want to miss this! And that’s not all folks…that’s just the tip of the iceberg! We’ve got Indie Author of the Month returning! *bounces around the room* 

I’ve even got a new feature up my sleeve, but I’ll save that awesomeness for another day. (Come on I can't tell you ALL my secrets, now can I?)

And finally, I’m working through what I hope to be my almost last round of edits on Soul Survivor. I’ve had some time to think through some plot points, review the notes that my lovely betas sent me, along with edit notes from the best editor EVA, Hollie! I’ll keep you posted on my progress as I work through FINALLY finishing up my debut novel! I’ve got a lot of new ideas brewing in this crazy head of mine as well and I’m so anxious to get them out on the page for you!

Well, that about wraps things up for now! But make sure you check back tomorrow for the MEGA AWESOME NO ATTACHMENTS-WITCH HEARTS-NEVER LET YOU FALL BLOCK PARTAY! Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all have an amazing week and be sure to Share the Love! :)
