Something Great by M. Clarke - AVAILABLE NOW

Be sure to check out the newest novel by Mary Ting aka M. Clarke!



* This is a New Adult romance novel recommended for ages 18+ due to sexual content and mature subject matter.

She didn’t know what she was missing…until he found her.

Maxwell Knight was positively trouble, dangerously good-looking, and seductively charming. He was everything Jeanella didn’t need in her life. Only Maxwell didn’t see it that way. His pursuit was relentless, making her even more determined to push him away.

Fresh out of college, life was simple and plain for Jeanella Mefferd. Every part of her life was smooth sailing; her friends, her job, and even the guy she’d started dating. Then one night, while at dinner, she spotted someone who made her feel things she’d never felt before—dangerous, heart pounding and breathless heat. Thinking she would never see him again, she brushed it off, but when she started to run into him unexpectedly, all she could think of was how he made her feel with his sweet flirtations. Everything about Maxwell Knight screamed trouble, especially when she found out he was her new boss’s son. Now, heading to a New York fashion show, would she be able to focus on her career instead of Maxwell, who had been scheduled to attend with her? As much as she tried to forget their encounters, his good looks, smooth words and determination to win her over gravitated her toward him. The next thing she knew, her mind was utterly consumed by him. Would she be willing to ignore all the dangerous signs and jump into his arms? Or would she miss out on the chance of finding something great?

A Must Read - Apollyon by Jennifer Armentrout

Title - Apollyon
Author - Jennifer Armentrout
Publisher - Spencer Hill Press


Synopsis - Fate isn’t something to mess with… and now, neither is Alex.

Alex has always feared two things: losing herself in the Awakening and being placed on the Elixir. But love has always been stronger than Fate, and Aiden St. Delphi is willing to make war on the gods—and Alex herself—to bring her back.

The gods have killed thousands and could destroy entire cities in their quest to stop Seth from taking Alex’s power and becoming the all-powerful God Killer. But breaking Alex’s connection to Seth isn’t the only problem. There are a few pesky little loopholes in the whole “an Apollyon can’t be killed” theory, and the only person who might know how to stop the destruction has been dead for centuries.

Finding their way past the barriers that guard the Underworld, searching for one soul among countless millions, and then somehow returning will be hard enough. Alex might be able to keep Seth from becoming the God Killer… or she might become the God Killer herself.



Mini Review - This is one of my all time favorite series. I am SO in love with Aiden and Alex is SO bad ass. I don't know how Jennifer does it but each novel just keeps getting better and better. I can't wait to read what she does with the last in the series, Sentinel!

Possession Scavenger Hunt


 photo Elanas-Button1_zpscc8012ab.gif
Today, I'm one of the stops on the Possession series scavenger hunt! I'm glad to welcome author Elana Johnson to my blog today with a guest post about her series. The third and final book, ABANDON, hit shelves June 4! Take it away, Elana! ----------

Okay, so one of the most frequently asked questions I've received is this: Will ABANDON end? You know, like, will I know where everyone is, and what they're doing, and that they're safe? These questions are usually accompanied by great fear, and people clutching their chests. Ha! And the answer is fairly simple: Yes. I know Possession and Surrender didn't "end" the way people perhaps wanted them to. We don't know where some people are, and we're worried about others. But I think ABANDON ends. Like, ENDS. You will know where everyone is, and you will be able to decide if you think they'll be safe and happy. It is a war, though, so I don't want you to think everyone is going to come out unscathed. I mean, it's a war. There are some new characters to love, and one of those is Saffediene. She's Zenn's first recruit, and they get paired up on the prime traveling team. We get to see how they're fighting against the Association as they fly to various cities and implement their war tactics. One of my favorite cities (which I've discussed in a couple of previous posts on this scavenger hunt) is Cedar Hills. I think what happens in Cedar Hills is a crucial turning point for both Saffediene and Zenn, and a moment when they both realize that hey, this really is a fight to the death -- and neither is sure how it will really end. Today's scavenger hunt can begin here! Somewhere on this map of the Association is the winning city. I've mentioned here in this post, and you can find references to it in all of today's posts. (See complete blog tour here.)
When you know today's scavenger hunt city, enter it in this form for a chance to win one of six Possession series paperback packages and a $50 Amazon gift card! Continue the scavenger hunt at Manga Maniac Cafe, where Julie has an exclusive excerpt from Zenn--and another clue for today's city! As if that weren't enough, there will be a daily winner of Possession series swag! Enter in the Rafflecopter below. a Rafflecopter giveaway If you get lost, you can always go to Elana's blog to find your place. Happy hunting!

Blog Tour Stop for Descendant






Hi!  Welcome to the blog stop for Descendant by Nichole Giles!!  We are excited to have you here.



About DESCENDANT: Seventeen-year-old Abigail Johnson is Gifted.
 
Blessed-or cursed-with Sight and Healing, Abby lives an unsettled life, moving from place to place and staying one step ahead of the darkness that hunts her. When she arrives in Jackson, Wyoming, she is desperate to maintain the illusion of normalcy, but she is plagued with visions of past lives mixed with frightening glimpses of her future. Then she meets Kye, a mysterious boy who seems so achingly familiar that Abby is drawn to him like he's a missing piece of her own soul.

Before Abby can discover the reason for her feelings toward Kye, the darkness catches up to her and she is forced to flee again. But this time she's not just running. She is fighting back with Kye at her side, and it's not only Abby's life at stake.



First up, we have a guest post for you from Nichole



The Descendant Villains

I think one of the most interesting parts of writing is creating villains and giving them a back story. As is the case with protagonists, the villain or antagonist needs to have history and motivation and flaws.

When I write, I’m not a fan of outlining. I’m what’s called a pantser, meaning I write my stories freely, letting them unfold however they come, and then going back to fill in plot holes and cut out unnecessary scenes and details. So it took several drafts of Descendant before I managed to get the villains right.

There are a few villains in Descendant, and while they’re all definitely connected, they each have different motivations and desires. Juri, who we meet—however briefly—in the first chapter, wants power and comfort, and is willing to do whatever he can to get it, even if it means betraying the men who were once like brothers to him. Boone, Juri’s sometimes-comrade, has a more basic desire. Money. If he could just get his hands on enough money, he’d retire to a remote island somewhere and live in wealth and comfort for the rest of his life. Both men believe that the fastest way to have what they both want is to free the Dark Prince, Tynan, and assist him in his rise to power over the human world.

And let’s be honest. If a dark prince took control of the world, his two trusted assistants would probably have all the wealth, power, and comfort they wanted. Or, you know, they could. Theoretically.

Which leads us to the Dark Prince Tynan. What does he want? Freedom. And revenge, because let’s face it, he’s bitter about his circumstances, and ridiculously jealous of Theron, his biological brother, for being the one their parents kept, and for being raised in a life of luxury while he was sent to live in the underworld. So yeah, he basically wants Theron’s life, and he is so overcome by anger and hatred that he will do whatever it takes, and kill whomever stands in his way. Including and especially Abby and Kye.

So here we have three solid, scary villains, who all have different motivations, but who are willing to work together in order to reach their desired results. A scary combination? I think so. 

Who are your all-time favorite story villains? 


Our Review:


Abigail Johnson‘s life is turned upside down after finding her grandmother dying on the kitchen floor, a victim of a tragic burglary.   Beginning her life over in Wyoming, isn’t quite what Abigail had in mind.  Her life is completely transformed during a class spring break trip in Yellowstone National Park upon meeting the mysterious Kye, whom she is inexplicably drawn to.  For Kye is one of the “gifted.”  Kye can communicate with animals, see the fae and has a white moose familiar  (thought that was funny).  However, Abigail is also ‘”gifted”.  She can heal and has second sight.  Using these abilities, Kye and Abigail embark on a mission to find several of the Lost Elan Keys, a lost magical civilization (similar to Atlantis?) to prevent the opening of a demon portal, which when opened will usher in the end of all mankind.  

It was refreshing to read a story in first person.  Currently, I am reading several novels based on several different characters, perspectives.  I often feel like I have to take notes!  

At first, I though Descendent was about witches, then I realized it was about reincarnation and the redemption of love.  Though slow at parts, the story line was engaging and kept my attention.  I would have loved to see a brief history or legend of the Elan!  Maybe something fun for the future Nichole?  All in all, Descendent was an enjoyable read and I look forward to the continuation of the story!
