Hello! I’m so excited to share The Bride of Glass’s new cover! This is seriously one of my favorite books I’ve written!

The Bride is coming.

After dying in the Bride of Frankenstein display, she is alive once again—and his. Can Perrie escape Vale’s hold on her, or will the Bride, her new alter, keep her from coming back?

Maisie Jaser is on a rescue mission to retrieve her cousin and best friend, Perrie. Together, she hopes to bring down Vale and rid the world of the destruction he has caused. But will she even be able to find Perrie, or will Vale prevail?

Cover Reveal: Lyrics & Curses + Giveaway

Lyrics & Curses
Candace Robinson
Published by: Filles Vertes Publishing
Publication date: November 10th 2020
Genres: Paranormal, Romance, Young Adult

Lark Espinoza could get lost in her music—and she’s not so sure anyone in her family would even care to find her. Her trendy, party-loving twin sister and her mother-come-lately Beth, who’s suddenly sworn off men and onto homemaking, don’t understand her love of cassette tapes, her loathing of the pop scene, or her standoffish personality. For outcast Lark, nothing feels as much like a real home as working at Bubble’s Oddities store and trying to attract the attention of the cute guy who works at the Vinyl shop next door—the same one she traded lyrical notes with in class.

Auden Ellis silences the incessant questions in his own head with a steady stream of beats. Despite the unconditional love of his aunt-turned-mother, he can’t quit thinking about the loss of his parents—or the possibility he might end up afflicted with his father’s issues. Despite his connection with lyric-loving Lark, Auden keeps her at arm’s length because letting her in might mean giving her a peek into something dangerous.

When two strangers arrive in town, one carrying a mysterious, dark object and the other playing an eerie flute tune, Lark and Auden find that their painful pasts have enmeshed them in a cursed future. Now, they must come to terms with their budding attraction while helping each other challenge the reflection they see in the mirror. If they fail, they’ll be trapped for eternity in a place beyond reality.

Cover Reveal: Tempt

Tempt

She once loved a hero—until he became a villain.

Wonder is a wildflower goddess who knows about the magic of picking a blossom—but even more about the consequences.

She’d thought her history buried and forgotten. She’d thought she would never see him again.

She was wrong.

Now, on the brink of an immortal battle between rebel deities and celestial rulers, Wonder must find a way to defeat her enemies. The key lays deep inside a magic, subterranean library filled with twisting corridors, forbidden books, and secret legends.

Yet trespassing through a deadly forest and breaking into an ancient library isn’t the problem.

The problem is she’ll have company: the devilish god from her past.

And he’s got his own agenda with her.

Brenik has always been envious of his twin sister, Bray. Growing up as fairy-like creatures, known as bats, everything came easier to Bray. While Brenik spent his time in her shadows, never feeling he was enough. After escaping their world of Laith, and living on Earth for ten years, Brenik attempts to strike a deal with the Stone of Desire to become human. Though true humanity is not an option, he will accept the curse that will alter him to get as close as he can.

Living in a tree trunk for the past year hasn’t been easy for Bray, more so after her brother disappears again. When a human boy and his brother, Wes, find her, a new friendship is struck. Through Wes, Bray learns there can be more to life than waiting within a tree. But worrying over where Brenik has vanished to always remains in the back of her mind.

When Bray reunites with Brenik, she realizes she must help him break the curse after she discovers the need for blood is beginning to overpower him. The curse not only damages those who get close to Brenik, but it could also destroy whatever is blooming between Bray and Wes.

Review: The Beautiful

Title: The Beautiful

Author: Renée Ahdieh

Date of Publication: October 8th, 2019

FC85E93C-47A7-44E4-A57F-C0F51AAB24A4

 

Goodreads Summary:

In 1872, New Orleans is a city ruled by the dead. But to seventeen-year-old Celine Rousseau, New Orleans provides her a refuge after she’s forced to flee her life as a dressmaker in Paris. Taken in by the sisters of the Ursuline convent along with six other girls, Celine quickly becomes enamored with the vibrant city from the music to the food to the soirées and—especially—to the danger. She soon becomes embroiled in the city’s glitzy underworld, known as La Cour des Lions, after catching the eye of the group’s leader, the enigmatic Sébastien Saint Germain. When the body of one of the girls from the convent is found in the lair of La Cour des Lions, Celine battles her attraction to him and suspicions about Sébastien’s guilt along with the shame of her own horrible secret.

When more bodies are discovered, each crime more gruesome than the last, Celine and New Orleans become gripped by the terror of a serial killer on the loose—one Celine is sure has set her in his sights . . . and who may even be the young man who has stolen her heart. As the murders continue to go unsolved, Celine takes matters into her own hands and soon uncovers something even more shocking: an age-old feud from the darkest creatures of the underworld reveals a truth about Celine she always suspected simmered just beneath the surface.

My Review:

Generally, I love almost anything vampire,    especially of the evil vamp kind! I was pretty excited for this one, not only because it had vamps, but because it takes place in the 1800s!

So to start with, I liked the characters but didn’t love them. Something about Celine had me not connecting with her fully. I mean, she’s a good character but I wanted something more. Bastien was great, probably my favorite, but he still felt underdeveloped at times. I think there needed to be more conversations between him and Celine before the romance developed. But I will say that their chemistry was on fire and Ahdieh knows how to write those scenes!!

The writing was gorgeous but sometimes could be distracting when I just wanted the story to move forward. Also, I wanted more of the paranormal, but I did like the character driven parts as well. But still! Overall, I think this book would work better as a movie because I’d love to see the period’s fashion and the awesome 1800s world laid out before me. I’ll also say that the cliffhanger killed me and I need to know what happens next!

Review: The Burning Shadow

Title: The Burning Shadow

Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Date of Publication: October 8th, 2019

3E94B2A8-92C8-4965-8DB2-C2A2D3720E0E

Goodreads Summary:

When Evelyn Dasher crossed paths with Luc, she was thrown headfirst into the world of the Lux―only to discover that she was already far more involved in their world than she ever suspected.

Because the Luxen aren’t the only ones with a hidden past. There’s a gap in Evie’s memory, lost months of her life and a lingering sense that something happened, something she can’t remember and nobody is willing to tell her. She needs to find out the truth about who she is―and who she was. But every answer she finds only brings up more questions.

Her search for the truth brings her ever closer to Luc, the Origin at the center of it all. He’s powerful, arrogant, inhumanly beautiful, extremely dangerous…and possibly in love with her. But even as Evie falls for him, she can’t help but wonder if his attraction is to her, or to the memory of a girl who no longer exists.

And all the while, a new threat looms: reports of a flu-like, fatal virus that the government insists is being spread by Luxen. A horrifying illness that changes whoever it touches, spreading panic across a country already at its breaking point.

My Review:

I’ve loved the Lux series and especially loved the last book, The Darkest Star! My little alien babies are just so fun to read about!

My favorite thing about this book, as with the last one, was Luc! He just lights up every scene that he’s in! I still wish that these books were from his perspective or that it was dual POV, but that’s okay! Oh, and yes, there was some magnificent swoon! And let me not forget Evie because she has some fabulous character growth in this story!

My only complaint was that the book felt too long. I think it could have definitely been scaled back by scrapping some of the scenes with Evie and her friends. Also, it felt a bit too political in some parts—I tend to like to escape stuff like that in books. But besides that, the writing was addicting as always and the descriptions and actions were so awesome! I feel like Armentrout always writes the best action sequences! I need book three!

Review: Third to Tumble

Title: Third to Tumble

Author: Alexa Whitewolf

Date of Publication: June 21st, 2019

A021A7C8-50CD-462D-B398-E7668A6F8E22

Goodreads Summary:

Rules are meant to be broken… Unless breaking them tears an entire family apart.

Finn

I’m the cool headed one. The rule-follower. The non-hormonal-raging wolf.

This pack needs someone like me. We’ve fought creatures of the night, psychotic families and dealt with magic and the unbelievable. We’re all thick as thieves, and the worst thing that could happen is getting kicked out of this pack.

Which is why breaking rules is not my thing.

So why does Elle make me want to throw it all away?

And why is it my stupid, idiotic wolf does exactly that…before I’ve even had a taste of her lips?

Now we’ve got more on our hands than a love story with bad timing. Cause the shite about to go down in Rockland Creek has just hit boiling point – and I’m the catalyst.

Elle

He barges in like he owns my destiny, and yeah it’s hot as sin. That Irish accent, those gorgeous eyes, it’d be easy to fall for the whole package.

Only I don’t. I may look as sweet as the baked goods I sell, but there are thorns under this armor Finn has no idea about. Things he cannot know about, or I’ll end up in the looney bin like my mom. And then things get really complicated when Tytus is added to the mix, telling me stories I can’t believe. They’re fable, myths….but before long I’m spiraling into a web so thick I don’t know which way is up. And when the one person I can trust is hunted by a demon from his past, I’m left to rely on myself to figure it out. But what if I make the wrong choice?

My review:

The one thing I can always trust in this series is that I’m going to love the two leads, and love them I did! Finn and his wolf were awesome and Elle has got to be my favorite girl so far!

I felt this book was really, really packed with even more emotion, swoon, character growth, and action compared to the other ones! I really felt for Elle and her inner struggles. I also seriously loved seeing the old gang pop up on the pages, and there are some incredibly interesting things that go down in this one!

I always love the author’s writing, and I feel like she could write instructions on how to bake a cake and it would read amazing! Yes, this book does have romance but it has so much more with wonderful world building and magic! Can’t wait for Lucas’s story next!
