One horrifying day will change the life of sixteen-year-old Shane Tucker and every other kid in the world.

In a span of mere hours, the entire adult population is decimated, leaving their children behind to fend for themselves and deal with the horrific aftermath of the freak occurrence. As one of the newly made elders in his small town, Shane finds himself taking on the role of caretaker for a large group of juvenile survivors. One who just happens to be Kelly Douglas—an out-of-his-league classmate—who, on any other day, would have never given Shane a second glance.

Together, they begin their quest to find out why all of the adults were slaughtered. What they find is even more horrifying than anything they could have expected—the annihilation of the adults was only the beginning. Shane and his friends are not the unlucky survivors left to inherit this new, messed-up planet. No, they are its next victims. There is an unknown power out there, and it won’t stop until every person in the world is dead.

A spine-tingling adventure that will have you gasping for breath all the way until the last page, The Last Orphans is the first book in an all-new apocalyptic series.

Jane Lark – I Need You – Excerpt Three

My thumb hovered over the send icon for the twentieth time today. Jason had texted yesterday to say he’d heard from Mr. Martin. Lindy was okay, just sleeping the drugs off in the hospital. He’d said she’d be out of action for a while.
I wanted to text her. But cowardice had a grip on my hand.
I switched the cell off, put it back in my pocket then got in the SUV to go to my next client.
I didn’t think of her while I worked. I had to watch my client, to make sure he did the exercises right and didn’t strain anything, and to count his repetitions.
But as soon as I left the guy my mind was back on Lindy.
Was she still in hospital?
Would she want me to text?
Did she know we’d been there?
Why the hell had she taken an overdose? Was it just a cry for help or had she really meant to end it?
How did she feel now?
The only way I was gonna get any answers was to text her. I took my cell out of the pocket of my sweat pants as I threw my backpack on the back seat of the SUV.
I got in with it gripped in my hand and sat there for a minute, looking at her picture. I’d taken it last year, after Jason had left for New York, when she and I had been hanging out a lot more, alone for the first time.
Hey, Lindy, sorry I haven’t been in touch. I should’ve been. How are you?’ My thumb hovered over ‘send’, my heart pounding out a bass beat. I had to do this. She was never gonna break the ice between us and I couldn’t stand feeling guilty anymore.
I didn’t expect an immediate reply. But relief hit me just because I’d done the deed.
I threw my cell on the passenger seat, slipped the gear shift into drive and pulled my seatbelt on, then pressed my foot on the gas.
My cell rang ten minutes later. I was on the road into town. Flicking the indicator on, I pulled into the side and parked on the dirt on the edge.
I picked my cell up. She’d called.
My hand shaking like a douche, I called her back. The leather bracelet I had on my wrist declared its presence as it slid a little up my arm.
Hi––”
Hey, Lindy, you called me. How are you?”
Are you driving?” Her voice was quiet and weak––it still cut through me like a blade.
I’ve pulled over. You can talk if you want to talk. Why did you do it, Lind?”
Because I feel like shit.”
Lind––”
You don’t need to tell me it was foolish, I know. And selfish, and pathetic, and… terrible… I… I’m sorry you saw me. Thank you for helping me. I think I’m gonna have a lot of apologizing to do.” She took a breath. “Say sorry to Jason too.” She hung up.
Shit, I smacked the wheel with the heel of my palm. Why did she have to be so frickin’ hard? Why did she have to hurt me so much? Why the fuck did I have to care about her? I wished my asshole of a heart would fall for someone else.

Synopsis

LOVE SCARS BURN, SEDUCE, AND NEVER, EVER FADE...
ANNA
The worst night of my life just got worse. Nobody explained why I've been dumped in this run down house, or who this hulk with the filthy mouth is. All I know is he wants me, he says I'm his, and I'm ignoring my instinct to run like hell.
When he pulls me into his embrace, I want to push closer to his warmth, his strength, his vicious tattoos.
Can I trust him? Can I trust myself? Or will obeying his wicked words confirm all my worst suspicions?
DAVID
So sweet, so pure, so confused...I almost feel bad about claiming her. Almost.
Too bad she's a Rossini, and I don't regret making her old man sign her over to me for one second. I was born a Strelkov, a killer and an outlaw, and I second guess nothing.
The instant my hands are on her, I know I've made the right choice. The crazy ache in my lips when they're not on hers doesn't lie. Revenge is a dish best served hot, sweaty, seething with passion, and Anna's tonight's special.
Yeah, she's gonna flip when I shove the wedding contract in her face. But I'm gonna make her my wife in every nasty, beautiful, permanent way I can, even if it means adding a few more scars to my skin and Anna's heart...

The Flight of the Griffin (The Flight of the Griffin, #1)My Review
The Flight of the Griffin by C. M. Gray

Five young heroes, three crystal skulls, magic, demons and an ominous character called “The Hawk” are all that’s needed to ramp up a younger reader’s imagination as they leave this world for the realm of the unknown. What am I saying, younger readers, any reader that loves a well-told tale will fall into the story and become a larger-than-life hero on a quest against evil, I myself was pretty awesome in the background! C. M. Gray’s The Flight of the Griffin is the ultimate quest in the battle against good and evil as four young boys fall into a fantastical journey to save the world from Chaos and are joined by one feisty girl who can shift shapes.

As their journey begins, each becomes uniquely special, have powers and a role to play as a team and it’s all done with the magic as they become the ones to use the Last Great Spell to save the world from Chaos. Will they survive those who would stop them? Will they have what it takes to stand as one in a battle where the world truly needs a hero? Time is running out, there is danger at every turn as they forge into the unknown, the weight of humanity on their shoulders.

Not only has C. M. Gray fueled our imaginations with his words, he has kept his tale easy to follow, allowing younger reader to use one of their most valuable assets, their minds. Young readers do not need the gritty details spelled out, they want the excitement, the thrill and to be part of the good fight without having reality putting limits on them. One of the greatest gifts we can give another is the gift of reading and The Flight of the Griffin has everything a reluctant reader just couldn’t’ resist!


Unmarked by Kami Garcia (The Legion #2)

Unmarked
by Kami Garcia

My rating: 4 stars

Series: The Legion - Book 2
Publication Date: September 30, 2014
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
ISBN-13: 9780316210232
Genre: YA Fantasy
Print Length: 400 pages
Available from: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

Synopsis:

The heart-pounding sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller, Unbreakable, by New York Times bestselling Beautiful Creatures co-author Kami Garcia.

He is here... and he could be anyone.

Kennedy Waters lives in a world where vengeance spirits kill, ghosts keep secrets, and a demon walks among us–a demon she accidentally set free.

Now Kennedy and the other Legion members–Alara, Priest, Lukas, and Jared–have to hunt him down. As they learn more about the history of the Legion and the Illuminati, Kennedy realizes that the greatest mystery of all does not belong to any secret order, but to her own family. With the clock ticking and the life of someone she loves hanging in the balance, Kennedy has to ask the question she fears most: what is it about her past that has left her Unmarked?


Unmarked (The Legion, #2)My Review
Unmarked by Kami Garcia

Some heart-clutching romance, demons on the loose, another adversary comes out of the woodwork and the past makes its appearance, all this and poor Kennedy still doesn’t have her mark. But is there a reason, as yet unknown to her? Unmarked by Kami Garcia leaves its own distinctive mark on this series by changing up the action versus the character-driven aspects.
Kennedy is trying to atone for the suffering and death that has been caused since she let a demon out of what was supposed to be his eternal prison. As Andras’ powers grow, he is becoming nearly invincible and the clock is ticking down to the time he will be able to unleash the wrath of all demons on humanity. Meanwhile another faction has stepped up to thwart the Legion. Are they strong enough to stand together, minus the one remaining “marked” ally they need? As much as she wishes none of this ever crossed her path, Kennedy has matured and is willing to do whatever it takes to stop the madness and chaos. With Jared by her side, she feels wanted and cared for, but will he always be there?

Kami Garcia has put the perfect edge on this installment of her series, with less over-the-top action, there was time to get to know new characters, and feel their impact on Kennedy, both in the past as well as the present. Have they also given her strength to face the future? Ms. Garcia has given us a new, improved Kennedy, more mature, stronger from within and more willing to do whatever is necessary for her friends. Andras is pure evil, the master of trickery, an while many of the characters held back in the background, their presence was noted and appreciated.

I received this copy from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers in exchange for my honest review.



Waiting for Prince Harry by Aven Ellis

Waiting For Prince Harry
by Aven Ellis

My rating: 5 stars

Publication Date: April 1, 2014
Publisher: Soul Mate Publishing
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Print Length: 249 pages
Available from: Amazon

Synopsis:

Twenty-four-year-old Kylie Reed has always been a rule follower. Organized and cautious to a fault, her dreams for life are often filed away for future use—when she has a house, when she meets her future husband, when she has been at her visual display job at a chic Dallas boutique longer. Kylie always has a reason for living her life in the future, not in the present, and fears not living her life to the fullest and reaching her dream of becoming a fashion designer.

The only exception to rules, of course, would be running away with Prince Harry. But living in Dallas and not knowing Prince Harry make this a non-option.

Or does it?

Because when Kylie accidentally falls into the lap of a gorgeous ginger guy—yes, even more gorgeous than the real Prince Harry—all bets are off. Kylie’s life takes some unexpected twists and turns thanks to this encounter. Could this stranger be the one to show Kylie how to live in the present?

Waiting For Prince HarryMy Review
Waiting for Prince Harry by Aven Ellis

Aven Ellis has pulled off a Hat Trick with this one, three books, three breathtaking hits! Three five-star scores, and the crowd goes wild, lights flash, the organ plays, the team huddles, smacking helmets, wait that’s hockey.
When the consummate rule follower dares to step outside of the carefully drawn box she has built for her future, to live in the present, if only for one evening, she discovers that picking a man up in a bar can be a life changing event. Kylie is stuck in neutral, everything she dreams of doing, becoming is all “in the future,” but is that a shield to hide behind, one that allows her to never take a chance and *gasp* fail or walk into the unknown?
Harrison was enjoying a quiet drink alone, people watching and enjoying the anonymity he rarely finds, as one of hockey’s best players. Suddenly he becomes the landing point for a beautiful woman and her drink. What he discovers is someone who has no clue who he is and likes him for himself, his brain and his conversation. But, this was a onetime deal, no names are exchanged, end of story. Or is it?

Can Harrison teach Kylie to live in the present, to make her dreams come true and stand up for herself instead of being a living doormat? Will Kylie realize that Harrison is the Prince she has been waiting for or will the pressures of being under the public microscope be too much for her ordered world? How much can love take before it‘s crushed and what would it take to repair it? Will Kylie lose the man of her dreams?

Waiting for Prince Harry by Aven Ellis is sweet, powerful, yet light enough to make you chuckle as each page melts into the next. Both main characters have that quality that gives them life and makes them someone you wish you knew. Aven Ellis goes the distance, start to finish with a tale of love and its little quirks in her own distinctive style, and what a style it is!

Look who won some GREAT reading at Tome Tender!

 IMPOSSIBLE

By C. A. Gray
PIERCING THE VEIL - Book 3
IMPOSSIBLE is the final installment in the Piercing the Veil trilogy.

The Shadow Lord has the Philosopher’s Stone, and therefore an army of invincible penumbra. He also possesses the fragments of Excalibur, the legendary sword prophesied to be the instrument of either his own destruction, or that of the Child of the Prophecy. The sword, he knows, requires blood to be reforged… and he knows exactly whose blood he wants.

Meanwhile, the Watchers are desperate to steal back the fragments of Excalibur and find out how to reforge them before the Shadow Lord does. Isdemus places Peter and Lily in Carlion’s sister cities for safe-keeping until the war begins. But Peter and Lily have an idea that might enable the Watchers to steal back the fragments, in spite of the Shadow Lord’s invincible army. Their plan requires them to travel halfway across the world, to an island largely believed to exist only in Greek mythology. Along the way, however, the Shadow Lord uses a pawn to convince Peter and Lily that they are powerless. Without their gifts of the Ancient Tongue, will either one of them stand a chance?

In this gripping conclusion of the Piercing the Veil trilogy, the Watchers and the Shadow Lord both amass their ranks, the battle begins, and the true identity of the Child of the Prophecy is revealed—to the shock of all.

Lynn Raye Harris HOT REBEL Review Tour

Hot Rebel
Lynn Raye Harris
Release Date: September 29, 2014
Genre: Romantic Suspense


A rebel on the run…

Victoria Royal is a traitor. Or so the U.S. government believes. Victoria was once a promising sniper in the Army, but now she’s gone rogue—worse, she’s just landed in the middle of a Hostile Operations Team mission in the desert and blasted it all to hell.
Nick “Brandy” Brandon doesn’t expect to run into Victoria when he’s bugging out from a mission gone wrong. It’s been more than three years since she disappeared from the sniper course they were in together, and he’s finally stopped thinking about her killer curves and smart mouth.

But now she’s back—and she’s far more dangerous than Nick ever believed possible… Is she really a traitor? Or is there something more at stake? He has to decide fast—because time’s running out and too many lives hang in the balance…

Interview with Lynn Raye Harris


What is the HOT team? How did they form?

The Hostile Operations Team is an Army Black Ops group formed by Colonel Mendez. These guys are more secretive than Delta Force! Mendez saw a need for a group who could act quickly to emerging threats, and who could operate outside the usual strictures of the military. For years, the group was stationed at Fort Bragg -- but then Mendez finally got what he’d been asking for, which was a Top Secret state-of-the-art facility on a military base in the DC area. He’s very happy now.
The group is made up of a whole group of bad ass military heroes. What makes your hero Nick from HOT REBEL different?

The HOT guys are all intense, but different in their own ways. Nick is a good guy trying to do what’s right -- and then he encounters a blast from his past, Victoria Royal, and he’s not supposed to feel any sympathy for her. But he does, and he has this real need to find out what’s making her tick. He’s a fixer, and he really wants to fix Victoria’s life. Victoria thinks her life is just fine, thank you. ;)
You always write strong women, but Victoria is a true warrior. What inspired you to write a female soldier?

I like women who are the hero’s equal. Strength is about character and my women are all strong in character. No, they aren’t their heroes’ physical equals - that would be silly. But they are equals in other ways, and they aren’t afraid to show it. Victoria is a warrior just like Nick is a warrior. But their skill is as much mental as it is physical, so she can be his equal as a sniper. And while I have trouble killing anything (yes, even spiders), Victoria can pull the trigger on a target because it’s necessary.  I was inspired to write that kind of character because I wanted to see what made someone like her tick.

Now that a number of the HOT guys have found the woman for them, where do you envision the series going? Do you have plans for any spin off series?

Oh my, do I have plans! First, yes, there are still a few guys who need to meet their matches, so I am not done with HOT. Not at all.

In HOT REBEL, you’ll hear about another HOT group, Echo Squad. HOT is made up of several 9-person squads. Alpha Squad is the group I’m writing about right now. But the squads could theoretically take up the entire alphabet if I wanted -- and that’s a whole lot of HOT warriors!

Anyway, it’s entirely possible Echo Squad will get a series of books. If you’ve read HOT SHOT, the previous book in the series, then you’ll know that Jack “Hawk” Hunter is probably starting his own mercenary group at some point in the future. And then there is Ian Black. Who is Ian Black? You’ll meet him in HOT REBEL -- and he’s very intriguing!

Finally, I get a lot of mail about Colonel Mendez. And yes, I think he will definitely get a story at some point! Mendez could be played by George Clooney in the movie version, so just imagine… Uh, where was I? Oh yeah, Mendez. He will get an HEA at some point -- and his heroine will be age-appropriate, I promise! No 20-somethings for him. ;)

We all have a favorite HOT guy, which one is yours?

It’s always the one I’m working on right now, which just so happens to be Garrett “Iceman” Spencer. His story will be out in December!

Which of the HOT stories has been your favorite to write?

That’s hard to say because I love them all. Each one is different and enjoyable for me. When I wrote the first book, HOT PURSUIT (currently FREE, btw!), I enjoyed sending a warrior back to his hometown to encounter the girl who’d been in love with him her whole life. But he betrayed her, and she hasn’t forgotten. That book started it all, and while I’ve loved every book since, that one will always hold a special place in my heart because it’s the beginning. Without HOT PURSUIT, there’d be no HOT and no other books to read. Still, I love them all -- and they can all be read as stand-alones, though I think readers would enjoy the whole series.
