– ABOUT HALLOW BE THE HAUNT (A Krewe of Hunters Novella) –

 

Years ago, Jake Mallory fell in love all over again with Ashley Donegal–while he and the Krewe were investigating a murder that replicated a horrible Civil War death at her family’s Donegal Plantation.

Now, Ashley and Jake are back–planning for their wedding, which will take place the following month at Donegal Plantation, her beautiful old antebellum home.

But Halloween is approaching. And Ashley is haunted by a ghost warning her of deaths about to
come in the city of New Orleans, deaths caused by the same murderer who stole the life of the beautiful ghost haunting
her dreams, night after night.

At first, Jake is afraid that returning home has simply awakened some of the fear of the past . . . .

But as Ashley’s nightmares continue, a body count begins to accrue in the city . . . .

And it’s suddenly a race to stop a killer before Hallow’s Eve comes to a crashing end, with dozens more life at stake, not
to mention heart, soul, and life for Jake and Ashley themselves.

 

– EXCERPT –

 

A trio had come to stand near the stage, watching the players.

They weren’t witches.

They were clowns.

Evil clowns. Well, he thought, it was a party filled with musicians, artists, and writers. The attendees were definitely honoring beloved authors such as Anne Rice and Steven King. The clowns might have come right out of a novel.

They were moving toward a man dressed as King Henry VIII. There was something about their movement that caught his attention.

“Stay here,” Jake told Ashley.

He started their way, glad the gun in his holster was his own bureau-issued Glock and not the costume piece that had come with the outfit. His black cape covered the truth of it.

It wasn’t easy getting through the crowd.

Even as he neared them, the clowns had moved. One of them had seen him. And known. Known that he was coming for them.

The clowns turned and started heading out.

They’d be heading straight toward Ashley.

He changed his own pace. And as the clowns seemed to converge on Ashley, he shouted out. “FBI! Get down!”

His words were met with applause and laughter. It was, after all, a costume party.

The clowns were almost upon Ashley. They stopped. And they stared.

Something about her—or the costume she was wearing—had given them pause.

They broke apart—twenty feet from Ashley.

And began to run.

Jake went after them. Logic said he had to go after the closest, but even the closest was blocked by a throng of people.

Ashley was safe—from the clowns at least.

Jake burst out onto the street. “Where’d the clowns go?” he demanded of the bouncer.

“The clowns? Buddy, this place is full of clowns.”

He saw one down the street and ran. This clown stopped, terrified, as Jake reached him and caught him by the arm.

“Hey, hey, what’s wrong?”

The clown was a young man—high school age. He was purely terrified, and seeing his face now and the makeup on it, Jake knew he hadn’t been one of the masked clowns that had drawn his attention inside.

Beaten, he determined to find his way back to Ashley as quickly as possible.

He needed to do three things. Get to Ashley. Find out just who the hell was wearing the Henry VIII costume. And figure out why in hell the clowns would have been after him.

 

 

– REVIEW –

 

Jake Mallory and Ashley Donegal are finally getting married, and what better place than Ashley’s ancestral home, Donegal Plantation. That scenario alone guarantees fans of Heather Graham’s Krewe of Hunters series that Hallow Be The Haunt is going to be a tasty treat this Halloween, and Heather Graham doesn’t disappoint.

As Jake and Ashley arrive in New Orleans days before Halloween, in preparation for their early November wedding at the Plantation, a series of murders occur.

Ashley, in tune with the supernatural, is visited by a young woman’s ghost, pleading for help. Jake, investigating the murders, realizes that Ashley’s spectral visits by the murdered victim put her in imminent danger.

As the plantation opens for its annual Halloween Haunt, Jake finds himself in a race to save his fiancé from the hands of the serial killer.  But in order to save her, Jake has to wade through the masses of costumed partiers — all dressed to kill.

Hallow Be The Haunt is the latest offering from Heather Graham’s Krewe of Hunters series and is brought to you by the good people of 1,001 Dark Nights. As a fan of the supernatural genre, you can’t ask for a better treat this Halloween. Filled with suspense, ghosts, gore, and all wrapped around a love story, author Graham delivers the well-written tale her fans have come to expect from her. Solidly written and fast-paced, pour yourself a cup of witches-brew and grab a copy of Hallow Be The Haunt. Oh, and don’t answer that knock at the door . . .

Review & Excerpt Tour: 1001 Dark Nights Presents Midnight Unleashed by Lara Adrian

MIDNIGHT UNLEASHED - tour banner

 


 

We are so thrilled to be bringing you the Review and Excerpt Tour for Lara Adrian’s MIDNIGHT UNLEASHED, the latest novella in the Midnight Breed series, brought to you by 1001 Dark Nights. Be sure to grab your copy of this sexy paranormal novella today!

 

 

– ABOUT MIDNIGHT UNLEASHED-

 

Return to New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Lara Adrian’s “addictively readable” (Chicago Tribune) Midnight Breed vampire romance series with a pulse-pounding novella of paranormal seduction and dangerous thrills, where an icy immortal beauty and a lethal Gen One Hunter must confront a powerful enemy while struggling to deny the irresistible calling of their blood.

 

 

– EXCERPT –

 

“Those men. Is that what they were—drug dealers?”

He stared at her. “You don’t need to know anything more than what I told the cops, Sia. Do us both a favor and leave it at that.”

“They were searching for something, Trygg.”

“So you mentioned.”

“Do the police have any idea what it might be?”

“I didn’t tell them that part.”

Sia gaped. “Why not? Rosa was killed for whatever it was they thought she had. If telling the police about it will help them understand what kind of trouble she was in—”

“The police can’t help.” Trygg blew out an impatient curse. “And whatever those men wanted from the woman doesn’t matter now.”

“It matters to me,” she insisted.

His dark eyes narrowed and he gave a stiff shake of his head. “This conversation is over. I told you, what happened here is the Order’s business. Go back inside and get some rest. Forget about tonight.”

She scoffed. “Forget it?”

When he started to move around her, Sia grabbed his arm. Warm, hard muscle clenched beneath her fingertips, sending a shocking heat through her body. She drew her hand away at once, trying to ignore the distressing awareness she felt for a man who infuriated her more and more the longer she knew him.

“You think I will ever forget what I saw tonight? A young woman was murdered, Trygg. A woman I liked. A woman I was responsible for keeping safe. And now an innocent little baby is without her mother. Maybe that’s something your cold-hearted kind can simply dismiss, but don’t expect me to do the same.”

“Yes, Tamisia. That’s exactly what I expect.” He scowled now, his scarred, sinister face taut with growing irritation and something more difficult to define. “In fact, I’m fucking demanding it. You do not want to be involved in this. So stow your questions and march your fine ass back into that house and stay there.”

– REVIEW –

 

“Love was treacherous. It was as cruel a master as the one he’d spent the first part of his life enslaved to . . . He swore he’d never put himself in those shackles again.”

Trygg

Midnight Unleashed

Kindle Loc. 965 of 1845

Vampire Trygg knows all about the evil creatures wreak upon one another. Raised in captivity, Trygg was subject to unspeakable abuse at the hands of the madman, Dragos. Upon his freedom, Trygg, a trained assassin, finds himself a member of the Order — a vampire society based in Rome. There he finds purpose in life as a warrior commanded to aid in keeping the newly found peace between the Atlanteans and the Order.  Charged with escorting a banished Atlantean, Tamisia (Sia) from her homeland to Rome, Trygg refuses to recognize the instant attraction between them.

Sia, an outcast from her beloved Atlantea, wants nothing more than to redeem herself to her people and return home. She finds purpose working with a fellow Atlantean, Phedra. Together they run a shelter that provides a safe haven for abused women and children.

Phedra, unlike Sia, chooses to live in Rome; she can return to her colony should she ever decide to change her mind about her purpose in Rome. A crystal on Phedra’s bracelet enables her to be wherever her heart deems. All she need do is to focus upon the stone.

When the shelter comes under attack, Trygg and Sia come face-to-face with one another and their attraction cannot be denied. After a night of passion, Trygg decides to move one — but can he?

Sia continues to work towards returning to her colony. Phedra, seeing her friend in distress, offers Sia the chance to return to Atlantea by handing over the crystal to her.

When Trygg is ambushed, Sia has to make the choice between returning to her homeland of Atlantea or rescuing Trygg. The answer seems to be crystal clear — or does it?

Lara Adrian’s Midnight Unleashed is her latest offering in her hugely successful Midnight Breed series and novella 17 in this season’s 1001 Dark Nights series. It’s a short, entertaining read, filled with fascinating characters from the series, but I stress that you do not have to be familiar with the series to appreciate this story. As a matter of fact, Midnight Unleashed is the perfect story to introduce the series to a new reader. Trygg and Did are clearly crafted, and the Midnight Breed universe is well delineated without being cumbersome. The romance between the two sparks, and the fact that the paranormal mingles with the supernatural makes for some very interesting reading. The plot flies along, and the writing is very tight.

Lara Adrian’s Midnight Unleashed is a must-read for the paranormal romantic — you will not be disappointed.

From Ride Wild:

“I don’t know how I’m going to do this.”

“Do what?” Of course, healing from this was going to take some time. And he’d help her with that however he could. And forgiving herself, well, even when there was nothing to forgive, it was possible to beat yourself up till the end of time. Slider knew that too damn well, didn’t he? As for getting justice—or revenge—the Ravens had already taken care of that when they’d killed her degenerate drunk of a father at their racetrack the night Haven’s father attacked the club.

But none of that was what she meant. Instead, she surprised the hell out of him—not with what she revealed, exactly, because he had an inkling. But instead she surprised him with her courage. “Pretend that I don’t have feelings for you,” she said.

If she hadn’t owned him already, she did as of that very moment. Emotion this in his throat, he tried to tell her. “I’ve been such a fucking wreck, Cora.”

“I know. I didn’t admit that to try to make you say anything back.”

He cupped her face in his hand, because he sure as shit was going to respond to that. “I’m a wreck, and I’d convinced myself that I always would be. But lately, I’ve been trying. I’ve been better. Hopeful, for the first time in years.” Admitting that should’ve been freeing, and it was. But, maybe ridiculously, it was also scary as fuck. Because when you’d become wed to a certain narrative of your life, letting go of it threatened to crumble the ground beneath your feet, leaving you with no idea where you’d be left standing when the dust settled.

Her expression went so, so soft. For him. “I’m really glad of that, Slider. So glad you feel better.”

“It’s you, Cora. It’s me, too, some. But you worked your way into my heart and my head and my house and my whole life until I could see again that I had a life. One I’d been neglecting. One I hadn’t been appreciating. So I don’t know how I’m going to pretend either. And frankly, I don’t want to, not anymore. Because I care about you, too. And not just as a friend.”

“You…really?” she asked, her eyes so wide and her face so damn pretty.

God, she didn’t get it, did she? Just how much she’d done to change his life…But he was going to make sure she did from here on out. “Really. I don’t know where we go or what we call it or how public we go with it, but there’s something here. And I want it. I want you.”

Sia had never seen anything as magnificent. Every inch of him was dense muscle and firm skin swirling with the strange, alien markings, these living, moving testaments of his need for her. Nothing at all like the sun-kissed, golden skin of her past lovers in the colony, including Elyon, whose fine-hewn physical perfection could have made the angels weep.

No, with his massive build and bulging muscles, Trygg looked more demon than angel. And her hungry eyes couldn’t get their fill of him.

“You’re glorious, Trygg.” She smoothed her fingers over his warm muscles and the stunning glyphs that were uniquely his own. “The most incredible man I’ve ever seen.”

His sensual mouth twisted at her praise, but this time he didn’t reject it. His breath sawed out of him, his fangs like pearly daggers as he gazed hungrily at her beneath him.

“Beautiful Sia,” he said, his hands roaming from her waist to the swell of her hip. Gripping her there, he dragged her against his groin, using his hold to crush their bodies more tightly together. “Have you ever been with a Breed before?”

Although phrased as a question, he meant it also as a warning. One that made her veins throb and the heat gathering in the center of her turn even more molten.

She shook her head. “I’ve never wanted to be. Now I can’t think of anything I’ve ever wanted more. Just you.”

With the press of his hard, thick arousal jutting against her, she moaned, suddenly desperate to get even closer. He leaned over her, tugging hard on her hair as he took her mouth again, his hold tilting her head back on her shoulders, baring her throat to him.

She could feel her pulse pounding there and froze, wondering if he wanted to sink his teeth into her flesh. Some wild, reckless part of her wanted him to. Dared him to. Anything to make this dark, needy pull inside her subside. But no, he only skimmed his lips over her skin, leaving a trail of flames in their wake as he moved lower.

Cover Reveal: Dignity by Jay Crownover

Cover designed By Hang Le

 

– ABOUT DIGNITY –

 

Looks can be deceiving.

I knew that most people took one look at the ink and the impossibly big and strong body it covered and decided I was a brawler…a bruiser…a beast. However, I was hardwired to be a thinker, not a fighter.

I should have chosen to use my brain and talents to be one of the good guys, a hero, a man with dignity and worth.

I turned my back on dignity and sold my soul to the highest bidder, deciding to dance with the devil, instead.

I couldn’t figure out how to help myself, so there was zero chance I knew how to save someone else.

That someone else was Noe Lee. She was the unkempt, unruly thief who was just as smart as I was and twice as street savvy. She was annoyingly adorable beneath the dirt and grime, and she was in trouble. In way over her head, I told myself it wasn’t my job to keep her from drowning. In the Point, it was sink or swim, and I wasn’t the designated lifeguard on duty.

I shut the door in her face, but now she’s gone…vanished…disappeared without a trace. It took less than a second for me to realize that I wanted her back.

When a woman comes along that melts all the frozen, hard things you’re made of; you’ll do anything you have to, to bring her home.

What you see is not always what you get…and with a man like me, what you get is more than anyone ever bargained for.
