The Daimones Trilogy by Massimo Marino Tour & #Giveaway

The Daimones Trilogy,Volume 1
by Massimo Marino
Genre: Science Fiction

Get your Science Fiction from a CERN Scientist ! Over 1,000 ratings on combined goodreads and Amazon.

Murder, genocide, the Apocalypse. 

Explore the future of humanity in Massimo Marino's sci-fi debut, Daimones, an apocalyptic tale that feels like it could happen tomorrow. You may never sleep through a windstorm again. 

Nothing could have prepared them for the last day. Death swept away the lives of billions, but spared Dan Amenta and his family, leading them to an uncertain future. When merely surviving isn't enough and the hunt for answers begins, memories from the past and troubling encounters lead Dan to the truth about the extermination of the human race. Distressing revelations will give new meaning to their very existence. 

Early humans shaped the future and seeded a plan millions of years in the making. Now survivors must choose: Endure a future with no past or fade away into a past with no future?

Once Humans
The Daimones Trilogy, Volume 2

The rebirth of the race of man is closely watched, and the Selected, the transgenic humans created by the Moîrai, guide and care for the wellbeing of the remaining humans in their various Communities around the planet.

Peace and security are suddenly shattered with acts of sabotage disrupting the fragile equilibrium of the growing society. Betrayal, fear, and a cosmic conspiracy risk sending the planet to the brink of self-destruction. Will Dan Amenta be able to come to terms with the logic of alien minds? Who is behind the sabotage and why? 

Death and blind violence walk in the secret alleys and in the depths of the planet, from the coldest lands to the bottom of the oceans; someone is at work with an evil agenda dictated by greed and lust for power. Ancient aliens, a galactic struggle, the control of a unique resource, meld to dictate the fate of humankind.

The Rise of the Phoenix
The Daimones Trilogy, Volume 3

War is inevitable, and the human race sets out to finally deliver retribution.

An alien colonization has altered the destiny of the human race forever. After wiping out billions of people, the race known as the Moîrai created a new, transgenic species of humans called the Selected -- giving them both the gift and burden of longevity and memories of human history on another world. 

The aliens charged the Selected with the responsibility of caring for "the spared ones," unaltered humans who survived the global catastrophe. That includes Dan Amenta's daughter Hope, the only spared one who remains. 

Together, Dan and Hope have witnessed Earth transform into a different world, where a powerful new neurological drug sparks the rapid evolution of the Selected, but Hope is nearing death. Once she's gone, obligations die with her, and the path is clear for a chain of events destined to rip apart the foundations of the galaxy.

Art of Love by Khardine Gray Tour & #Giveaway

Art of Love
by Khardine Gray
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Never get involved with a man who is competing for the same job as you.

It's a bad idea. Obviously...
And no, not even if the man is a complete dead ringer for Brad Pitt/Thor.
No, not even if he’s an irresistible, charming sex god with his panty-melting smile and the sexy James Bond English accent to sweep you off your feet.
Off Limits.
That’s what that guy is.

Off! Limits!

And trouble.
When I first met Hunter Kane I knew he was trouble.
It all began in a bar on a night we should have had one-night stand. The kind that blows your mind, except I couldn’t remember what happened.
Then I was convinced my eyes were screwing with me when he walked in for the same interview as me.
Then we got drafted into this competition for the same job.
That made him my rival.
The one man I shouldn’t have…


He’s is the one man I can’t forget.
It’s a bad idea to get involved.
But the temptation of this man is too strong to resist, and my body keeps betraying me.
I know one day it will blow up in my face.
I even know what day that will be.
We both have to choose.
The job, or each other…
Then wanting him will be the least of my problems.

Love on High Steel Bridge by Rebecca Rohman

Love On High Steel Bridge
by Rebecca Rohman

My rating: 5 stars

Publication Date: February 26, 2019
Publisher: Rebecca Rohman
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Suspense
Print Length: 489 pages
Available from: Amazon | Barnes & Noble
Captain Dorian Rae is a wounded soul who gets his greatest pleasures from being in the great outdoors and soaring the skies. When he has a life-changing encounter with a beauty on Washington State’s High Steel Bridge, he never anticipates that one meeting would have an enduring effect on him and change their worlds forever.

But fate seems determined to throw them together when she repeatedly shows up not only in his dreams but also, in reality…and in his past when he finds out that she played a role in the death of his best friend.

When a seemingly impossible friendship develops between the two, the lines between friendship and romantic relationship become blurred and Dorian’s efforts to stay out of a relationship—especially with a woman with such a tattered past―comes into question. 

While her past catches up with their present, and disapproving family and friends enter the mix, the already deep-seated conflict that at first kept these two people apart, now threatens to break them up forever.

Love On High Steel Bridge will take you through high altitudes and to some devastating lows. If you like suspense, steamy love scenes and unexpected plot twists, come with Captain Rae as he flies the skies on this riveting journey.

Love on High Steel Bridge by Rebecca Rohman

Love On High Steel BridgeRebecca Rohman knows how to plunge her readers soul deep into a tale of an unlikely romance, devastating pasts, hopeful futures and a very rocky road to forgiveness and redemption for one woman who lost everything, including her will to live until Fate brought her a man who could make her heart soar and regain the will to live again.

Romantic, yet barbed with jagged edges, this story will grip readers around the heart and squeeze, even as some characters may prove hard to understand, and others seem too good to be true. Proof that for those who have been kicked repeatedly when they are down can find that one soul who will do anything to save them and prove they have worth.

Sometimes steamy, sometimes heart wrenching, sometimes filled with joy and the magic of love, this story is like a contemporary fairytale come true.

I really struggled at times with one of the main characters, until I sat back and thought of her life, then she became very painfully believable for me. The modern day Prince Charming is such rare commodity in society, his actions and his heart were swoon-worthy. All in all, when I reached that last page, I knew the satisfaction of having read a book that not only entertained me, but made me think and put myself in the characters’ shoes. LOVE ON HIGH STEEL BRIDGE has that special magnetic pull that remains even after the story is done.

I received a complimentary copy from Rebecca Rohman!

New York Times bestselling author Lisa Kleypas delivers a scintillating tale of a beautiful, young widow who finds passion with the one man she shouldn't...

Although beautiful young widow Phoebe, Lady Clare, has never met West Ravenel, she knows one thing for certain: he's a mean, rotten bully. Back in boarding school, he made her late husband's life a misery, and she'll never forgive him for it. But when Phoebe attends a family wedding, she encounters a dashing and impossibly charming stranger who sends a fire-and-ice jolt of attraction through her. And then he introduces none other than West Ravenel.

West is a man with a tarnished past. No apologies, no excuses. However, from the moment he meets Phoebe, West is consumed by irresistible desire...not to mention the bitter awareness that a woman like her is far out of his reach. What West doesn't bargain on is that Phoebe is no straitlaced aristocratic lady. She's the daughter of a strong-willed wallflower who long ago eloped with Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent—the most devilishly wicked rake in England.

Before long, Phoebe sets out to seduce the man who has awakened her fiery nature and shown her unimaginable pleasure. Will their overwhelming passion be enough to overcome the obstacles of the past?

Only the devil's daughter knows...

When I read the synopsis for Tangled Web, I thought that this book is exactly my kind of read. Although, I have been disappointed in the past by a book not living up to the synopsis...THIS IS NOT THE CASE WITH Tangled Web.

So, you are probably wondering what really reeled me into the plot of Tangled Web. I found Tangled Web packed full of a cast of great characters. There was a very intriguing mystery. And, of course I love a really good urban fantasies with a mash up of a paranormal aspect, mystery, romance and suspense...I was all in.
