An unlikely romance…


Robin and Joey have a unique relationship. Book one is barely even a romance and the “action” is all of the pg-13 variety. There’s attraction, sure—he is freakin’ hot—but one of the best parts about a 40+ heroine is that she’s got some life experience under her belt. She knows that, even though fae can’t lie, she would, in her words, be an idiot to trust him. He’s the piece of cheesecake she’s going to regret indulging in come morning. 


The thing about cheesecake though, it’s always there, tempting us to indulge. Rubbing at our willpower, making us crave it. Mmmm…cheesecake. So after all that constant temptation, book two tests Joey’s willpower. Because even if she is old enough to know better, she’s still human enough to do it anyway. And to tell with the consequences.

*Book Tour & Giveaway* Exploitation With the Diavolo by Aleisha Maree

 


Exploitation With the Diavolo
Cruisin' Around Series
by Aleisha Maree
Genre: Dark Romance


Domenico Rossi
She was a ghost. One moment she was there the next she was gone.
A bit like smoke when you ran your fingers through it. Unable to grasp it, all you could do was watch it sit heavy in the air then fade away.
She played games with my mind, twisted my emotions, then she would disappear. Causing my body to crave her like an addict. Her body was sinful. Created straight from the fires of hell and just as hot. Her lips deceive you with every word. Her kiss was deadly and consuming all rational. Her heart was stone cold and locked with a key nowhere in sight, but it didn’t stop me from searching for it.


Aviva D’Angelo
He was beautiful. Something so unique and rare that I wanted to break it. Playing with him was a perk afforded to me from the pure hatred and long list of hits that I needed to prove to my father that a woman can live in a man’s world doing a man’s job and be just as strong. A daughter can be just as great as his prodigy of a son. Useful, resourceful, and strong. Yet in his eyes no matter what I did I was the reason he no longer had a son, an heir to the throne of the D’Angelo mafia underworld. So, with that being said this is why I play the deadly game of cat and mouse with all men of the mafia. Walking within the illusion of disillusion to unravel all the senses of the boss of bosses and bring down the house of Rossi.


**Only .99 cents!!**

*Book Tour & Giveaway* Raven Woman's Tavern by Laura Koerber-GUEST POST

 


Raven Woman's Tavern
by Laura Koerber
Genre: Dystopian, Magical Realism


A backwoods bar run by a shapeshifter.
A road that changes length, direction, and destination.
A young man, lost in the forest and dying, hears the cry of a raven.

Set in a dystopic near future, Raven Woman’s Tavern is the story of a collection of survivalists who are squatting in the remains of a dead timber town in the Northwest. The residents—most of them old, sick, and in need—help each other by means legal and extralegal under the watchful eye of Rachel, the tavern keeper. When the peace of the community is disturbed by the sudden visit of four members of the local militia, the survivalists are frightened; not all of them are law-abiding and some are not citizens.

But, as Crazy Mary said to Charlie the Poet, “You don't piss Rachel off. She's got her ways.”




Laura started off life as an artist. Even in early elementary school she could draw with near-photo realism. She liked to tell herself stories while driving, or doing boring tasks such as housework, but never thought of herself as a writer.
That is, until she got involved in the rescue of an abused dog. Her first book, a collection of short stories entitled The Dog Thief, made the Kirkus Review list of one hundred best indy publications and set her on a course of writing.
With one exception, her subsequent novels are in the genre of fantasy, though four have themes relating to current events, and three are also dystopias. Wild Hare, the story of a half/man-half/nature spirit and his feud with the local civic powers also made the Kirkus Review “best of” list.
The exception, I Once Was Lost But Now Am Found, is the nonfiction account of the largest dog rescue in the US to succeed without help of local authorities.
Laura is a retired teacher and lives on an island in Puget Sound with her husband; her one-eyed cat; and her elderly, disabled and chronically grumpy shih tzu. She is volunteers at a rescue for unadoptable cats.

 Magical realism is not a very common genre. It differs from fantasy in that the bulk of the narrative is realistic and the story has a point to make about the real world, whereas fantasy is escape literature. I am not slighting fantasy by calling it escapist; most of my own reading for pleasure is escapist. I read my favorite books (I am a Ben Aaronvitch fan!) over and over precisely to put my head in a place that is not like ordinary reality. But I don’t write escapist stories—so reader beware!

Raven Woman is set in a dystopic near future in world wracked by the effects of climate change. The plot is built around the human need to give and receive kindness. That maybe sounds a bit highfalutin’—I hope not. It’s a story about a small group of elderly people who are helping each other get by until, abruptly, their lives are disrupted by careless and arrogant members of a local militia.

The Common Theme in My Books


I’ve written several series – Modified, Enhanced, Connected, and now The Vampire Cure series. At a glance, the most obvious commonality is they all have some kind of superpower in them. And it’s true—I’m kind of a superpowers junkie. I’ve watched all the superhero movies and even have a Deadpool omnibus collection of comics. But superpowers aside, there’s another common theme: strong women with issues.

And sometimes those issues are HUGE. Take Kate, from my Modified series. She’s a textbook antihero, inspired by my love of Deadpool. She makes poor life choices and has even killed people. She doesn’t have all the answers and sometimes doubts herself, as she’s learning to live with a power that’s inherently evil. I’ve gotten criticisms about her, that she’s too broken. But honestly, that’s what I love about her. She’s no Captain America, but yet she still manages to save the day and protect the people she cares about. Her many flaws and her attitude problem resonate with me. It makes her seem more human and stronger because of them.

Even with my more “normal” characters, like Cass from A Fated Exception, have issues. Hers is simply being around other people. Highly introverted, she prefers the company of computers to people—her main power allows her to communicate with computers. But for Cass, it’s more than introversion, it’s more about trust. She acquired an ability to detect when a person was lying, and for me, that power seems like an awful one to have. I mean, how could you trust anyone when you know they’re lying? Cass found it refreshing to deal with something so straightforward—inputs and outputs, on or off. Computers don’t lie or attempt to deceive, they just work off the instruction set given. Introducing an android into her world that was both human in appearance and a computer, who could possibly deceive was a fun wrench to throw in.

I love writing flawed characters with real life issues, many of which I struggle with myself. It makes the character more believable, and the victory that much sweeter when she not only overcomes the villain, but also battles her own inner demons and wins.
