Where Lightening Strikes__ebooksmDo you know what it feels like right before lightning strikes? How you can feel the current running through your veins? The trembles of warning that ripple through the air? It was a thrill Tamar King chased all her life until it became the very thing she had to escape.

For the last four years, Tamar King has hidden herself in an isolated world she created. She was safe. No one could touch her. Until Lyrik West walked through her door.

He’s the lead guitarist for Sunder and everything she can never have. The dark and beautiful rock star becomes everything she craves.

Lyrik’s life has been devoted to his band and that success has cost him. Bitter, hard, and filled with regret, he refuses to lose himself again, but from the moment he sees her, he wants one night with Tamar King.

The gorgeous bartender is more than he bargained for. Their attraction is consuming. Their desire overpowering. With one touch, they ignite.

But is it worth the cost of getting burned?

She’s a gorgeous nightmare and he’s a wicked dream…

#newrelease from one our faves @authorcaseybond 1980: You Shook Me All Night Long #nalit #mustread

Title: 1980: You Shook Me All Night Long
Author: Casey L. Bond
Genre: 80’s New Adult
Blurb:
My name is Tina. I’m a freshman at USC, a good student and friend…
And I’m a victim.
Hot guys make my brain turn to mush. So, the fact that I was arrested then survived a massive earthquake only to be shackled to the fox next to me can all be overlooked, right?
Okay, so I was arrested before I met Luke. A tremor that caused a blackout at the LAPD precinct where we were being held. Although technically, I wasn’t shackled to him, I was handcuffed, but still. Any and all lapses in my usual—totally sane, I might add—judgments, are his fault. Totally.
I wouldn’t typically do the things I did. I’m no outlaw. I’m a college student.

Book #7 of the Bestselling Collapse Series by Summer Lane

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble

SNEAK PEEK:

The dark, dank smell of the cave seeps into my bones and chills my soul. Dim, flickering firelight crawls up the walls, throwing a shadow across my face. I hug my blanket tightly around my shoulders, shivering. It is painfully silent.

There are people everywhere—about thirty of us—but there is no talking. No whispering, no laughing. We are too tired to talk. Too cold. Small fires have been lit here in the cave, but it is hardly enough to remedy the cloying chill of the winter storm.

It is all sharp angles and rocky slopes in here. There is no soft surface, no privacy. Most people are asleep right now. It has become the only way to make the time pass quicker. Waiting, as we are, for the storms to end. For this harsh winter to be over.

But it is not getting better.

It is getting worse.

I cough and shudder. We have been trapped here for weeks. I feel as if the walls are falling down around me, devouring me. I close my eyes tightly, brushing my calloused fingers over the familiar, worn grip of my rifle.

Soon, this will all be over.

Soon, we will all be dead.



Interview with Summer Lane

Topic: Surviving the Nuclear War

State of Destruction brings in a whole new level of the apocalypse: a nuclear warzone. How does this change up the game in the series?

It gives a whole new dimension of intensity to Cassidy Hart’s situation. Radiation fallout is deadly, and the nuclear war will, for the first time, make specific locations uninhabitable, destroying former safe havens. It makes the war even scarier – even worse.

I knew a long time ago that a nuclear was was on the horizon for Cassidy and her friends. It’s finally hitting them hard in this book – the beginning of the end.  

How would you survive a nuclear war?

It really depends on how close you are to the blast site and the rings of radiation emanating from it. I don’t want to give too much away for those who haven’t read the book yet, but in Cassidy’s story, she is able to survive the nuke because of her location. The Jetstream, and the kilotons of the nuclear warhead all come into play, too.

If I knew a nuclear weapon was headed toward my area, I would retreat to a place out of the Jetstream, with plenty of underground facilities. I would have my own fresh water and food sources, and I would never leave the house without being adequately covered (if I was on the closer side to the blast site).

What is in YOUR theoretical bug-out-bag?

The essentials to maintain life! Water purification tablets, dehydrated food packets, pain medication, a first-aid kit, socks, underwear (hey, you gotta think about these things!), dry shampoo, several knives (bowies, machetes, etc.,), maps, gloves, any weaponry and ammunition available (self-defense is essential during the apocalypse!), a good set of tweezers, spare sets of sunglasses and reading glasses, duck tape, and climbing rope with carabineers.

Those are just the basics, though. I would definitely fit a sleeping bag onto the pack, and I would most likely be wearing layers of clothing so I wouldn’t have to carry so many things – although I would have to ditch jackets and thermals if the weather was hot and humid.

About the Authors

Elle Christensen

I’m a lover of all things books, a hopeless romantic, and have always had a passion for writing. Between being a sappy romantic, my love of an HEA, my crazy imagination, and ok, let’s be real, my dirty mind, I fell easily into writing romance.

I’m a huge baseball fan and yet, a complete girly, girl. I’m an obsessive reader and have a slight (hahaha! Slight? Yeah, right) addiction to signed books.

I’m married to my very own book boyfriend, an alpha male with a sexy, sweet side. He is the best inspiration, my biggest supporter and the love of my life. He is also incredibly patient and understanding about the fact that he has to fight the voices in my head for my attention.

I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoyed writing them!

Dirty Ugly Toy
by K Webster
Publication Date: January 18, 2015
Genres: Romance, Contemporary, Dark, Adult

DUTFRONT

Purchase: Amazon | Kobo | iBooks

Her time is over.
Things are looking up.

She’s dirty and ugly.
He’s wicked but handsome.

Six months to toy with her.
Six months of vacation and a ton of money.

I’ll hurt her beyond repair.
I’ve been through much worse.

She’s difficult to control and doesn’t obey.
I’m done submitting to anyone or anything in this life.

I should hate her.
I should hate him.

The game has changed.
I will win.

Dirty Ugly Toy is a novel that blurs the lines of right and wrong, deals with abuse, contains dubious consent, and adult subject matter. If you are sensitive to violent sexual situations, the book may not be suitable for you. Some parts of this book are not easy to read and are not intended for everyone. However, those that keep an open mind and stick with it will not be disappointed.

Mama’s Thoughts:

Wow, hmmm…so she’s not kidding about this being dark.  Like really, really twisted. BUT- hold on now, it is worth it.  I’ve read several dark romance type books the last year and have noticed that many times it’s basically gore and punishment porn, but that is so not the case here.  Dirty Ugly Toy takes you into the minds of two very unusual people with surprisingly similar demons.  That’s not to say they have the same past, it’s more that they are both dealing with some trauma, both past and present, and it sort of coalesces into a storm of tension between the two.  It’s beautiful if you can get past the gritty surface, and in a way it is one of the deepest connections I’ve read between two characters, even though they are so so far apart.  As mentioned in the author’s note, you should definitely be aware of triggering topics in this one, but if that’s not an issue for you, I implore you to take a leap and give this a chance.  It could be your next 5 star read!

Chapter 1
“Emma, wake up.” I blinked several times, trying to focus in the darkness, only to find Kade’s distraught eyes hovering close by. “Another nightmare?” he asked.
I nodded, wiping the beads of sweat from my brow and then cuddled close to him, resting my head on his chest. The beating of his heart had a way of calming my anxiety, soothing my every fear.
“Maybe you should talk to Alaine,” he whispered, pressing his lips to the top of my head.
“I’ll talk to her in the morning,” I exhaled.
“You’re shaking.” His hands rubbed down my arms. “Was it about me?”
I could sense a hint of concern in his voice.
“No,” I breathed. “It was about Alaine this time.”
I tried to erase the visions of her scorched and blistered body from my mind, but it was still there. In full color. Terrorizing me. The smell of smoke was still lingering in my nose, and the heat of the flames still felt warm on my skin.
I didn’t want to worry anyone with my troubles, but it was the third time this week I’d woken Kade with these horrifying nightmares. Every night it was a different loved one, and they were getting stronger as they progressed.
What was most unnerving was the shadowy figure with onyx wings present in every one. I could never make out the face but could sense its twisted pleasure as it watched me suffer.
I’d had enough of watching my loved ones endure horrible and painful deaths. Although they were nightmares, the pain was real and lingered for days after. It was something I couldn’t just erase. These dreams ate at my soul, keeping me tight in its cold, indifferent arms, holding on through my waking hours.
I prayed they weren’t premonitions, and I prayed Kade wouldn’t be in any future nightmares. I’d watched him suffer in real life, and it’d shattered my entire being. Now that we were bonded, watching it happen again would kill me.
I glanced over at the clock. It was four in the morning, but I didn’t want to go back to sleep.
“Where are you going?” Kade asked as I slipped from the warmth of his arms.
“To make some coffee and read the book Lia sent me.”
“You sure you don’t want to stay here with me?”
“You know I do, I just don’t want to go back to sleep.”
His hazel eyes swirled with desire. “I didn’t say we had to sleep.”
“Are you seducing me, Mr. Anders?”
A grin played on his lips as he pulled the covers down. “Maybe.”
“Well then,” I exhaled, jumping in next to him. “Coffee can wait.”
