Release Blast... Morgan Campbell's The Corw and the Butterfly


The Crow and The Butterfly
Starlight Falls, book 3
By Morgan Campbell
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: November 16, 2018



Hannah Freeman loved her best friend’s brother for as long as she could remember. On her eighteenth birthday, her only wish came true when Landon Walker swept her off her feet. With him flying off for a two-month tour the next day, Hannah willingly gave herself to him.

Landon Walker thought one taste of Hannah Freeman was all he needed. One small bite of the redheaded, innocent vixen and he was unknowingly hooked. When he came home, he wasn’t prepared for the tragedy that would hit them.

Ten years later, Hannah and Landon are never far from each other’s minds. They suffer in silence in a room full of people who don’t know their secret. When a bad date and a stressful workday bring them together at Club Three, Landon and Hannah begin a secretive affair that has the sheets burning up. He wants a submissive, and she wants a man who can help drive her passionate side wild.

When Landon’s job catches up with him, it’s up to him to keep Hannah safe until he’s put in harm’s way and Hannah begins to relive the nightmare she thought she’d moved on from.

A price must be paid but the question is, who will be the first to sacrifice for the other?

Release Blast.... Annie Anderson's Daughter of Souls & Silence


DAUGHTER OF SOULS & SILENCE by Annie Anderson
Rogue Ethereal - Book 2
Release Date: NOVEMBER 13, 2018
Genre: Urban Fantasy

Plus, a $50 Amazon Gift Card GIVEAWAY!


SYNOPSIS:

A Council full of Ethereal Elders wants me dead. Yep, it’s a regular Tuesday.

When you kill a demon there are consequences.

Centuries-old witch, tattoo artist, half-demon… none of those titles are going to save me this time. The only way I’m going to get out of my death sentence is to take down the biggest, baddest demon there is… My father.

And I thought being burned at the stake was bad...

GRAB IT NOW!



EXCERPT:

“Do you know why you’re here?” the blonde dragon asks. Her accent is thick, maybe Russian or Ukrainian perhaps.
“I have an idea,” I drawl, my left eyebrow hitching up without permission.
Oh, I had more than an idea. I knew exactly why I was here. It probably had something to do with the demon I’d killed.
“Good, then we’ll dispense with the pleasantries. Maxima Alcado, born Maxima Christina Arcadios, Rogue Witch, denounced member of the former Arcadios coven, shunned daughter of the Demon Andras and Pacific Northwest coven leader, Teresa Alcado, sole heir to the royal seat, you are hereby accused of murdering your Master, Micah Goode, with a forbidden instrument.”
A high-pitched buzzing takes over my hearing as a biting cold seems to seep into my limbs. I hate that name. Hate the way my body betrays me every single time I hear it. Both his name and the one I was given when I came into this world. Arcadios. I’d thought I’d buried that part of me just like my mother had. I guess not. And Micah’s. I hate the way just the specter of him makes it so I can’t go home, can’t even look at my house without my breath coming in these same short pants of an impending panic attack.
It isn’t fair. I didn’t ask to be branded. I didn’t ask to be born in the family I was. And that’s why Micah wanted me. Because of who my family was. Because of the blood running in my veins.
I guess the self-defense excuse was probably moot here.
I open my mouth to say just that when I hear my Gramma’s voice in my head, her crisp English accent echoing through the edges of my brain.
Don’t say a word, Maxima dear. I’ll fix this. I swear to you. I’ll fix this.
I meet her warm brown eyes, knowing she means it, but also knowing that if it came to it, I might be beyond saving.
“Have you nothing to say?” the Witch asks, his tone snide as he sneers at me.
I shift my gaze from Bernadette to him, keeping my face impassive, looking him over. Yes, he’s attractive, but his sneer sours his looks. My assessment must unnerve him because he shifts in his seat.
Probably used to a bit more groveling, I’d bet.
“So be it,” he pauses – probably for effect – taking over the speaking for the dragon, a little upward crook of his mouth. “The sentence for your crimes is death. Do you have anything to say now?”
It turns out I didn’t.

Blog Tour... A.F. Stewart's Souls of the Dead Sea

Souls of the Dark Sea
Saga of the Outer Islands; Book 2
A. F. Stewart
Genre: Dark Fantasy
Published: September 13, 2018

From the depths, darkness is rising…

Something ancient and powerful stirs beneath the sea of the Outer Islands. A creature strong enough to challenge Captain Rafe Morrow, God of Souls, for control of the dead and the survival of the living.

Still reeling from the aftermath of his battle with the Goddess of the Moon, Rafe and the crew of the Celestial Jewel find a mysterious shipwreck and strange tales of bones. Tasked by a new ally to find answers, Rafe stumbles on long-buried secrets shrouded in the shadows of the Nightmare Crow.

Now armies of the dead ascend from the ocean. And their master is not far behind.

Set sail on a new adventure with ghosts, gods and sea monsters!





Excerpt:

Prologue

Darkness.
The sound of her breath swallowed by silence. Her tranquillity. Then, a flutter of wings echoed in the distance.
She shivered, unexpectedly alarmed. Nothing should be able to trespass in her hallowed place without her knowledge. She stared into the black abyss with a tinge of anger and trepidation. “Is someone there? Reveal yourself! This is my domain, intruder!”
“Calm yourself,” a voice replied, with more flapping of wings. “I’ve come to talk. No more than that, Bevire.”
Bevire inhaled sharply at the mention of her name. The darkness shifted, slithering, matching her uneasy mood. “How do you know me? How did you find this place?”
A soft chuckle sounded. “Darkness is my home, Bevire, as it is yours. And you shouldn’t whisper secrets to your shadows. Sometimes there are creatures listening.”
“Eavesdropping you mean,” Bevire snarled, curling her fingers into fists. Around her, the darkness swirled.
“Perhaps a bit. But the darkness and I are friends. Friends sometimes share secrets.”
“But I have no secrets,” She bit her lip against the lie. “And even if I did, you are not my friend.”
“I’d like to be. Wouldn’t that be nice? To have a confidant? To be able to share your worries and fears? You have fears, don’t you? About those terrible dreams that have been disturbing your slumber?”
“How did you…” She stopped, letting the rest of her admission go unspoken.
“I can feel your fear. The darkness can feel your fear. I want to help. I want to ease your troubles. Talk to me. Confide in me. Let me help you.” The voice from the shadows spoke in a soothing, gentle manner like a friend.
Bevire closed her eyes. She wanted to scream, to deny, to send the unknown creature away, but she suddenly felt tired, lost. Alone.
“You are not alone. Not anymore.”
“I—I don’t—” She wanted to protest, but having someone know, finally know, felt good. She whispered instead. “Yes, I am afraid that…my dreams will come true.”
“Ah. My poor dear.” More gentle, sympathetic tones and then, “You are wise to fear. Your dreams hold truth. Especially that dread you hold of one particular person.” A space of silence fell. Bevire shook in consternation before the voice added. “I can help you with that, help you rid yourself of your fear. Of your enemy.”
“An enemy?” Bevire recoiled at her most intimate thought. She lashed out in denial. “I have no enemy! Who do you think threatens me? Tell me!” She shouted her haughty words but knew no lie would hide the secret name in her heart. A name that shouldn’t be there. She held her breath as she waited for the voice to speak it aloud.
“Your brother. God of Souls.”
A pause, with only her rapid breathing to break the quiet. Then, “I’m listening.”
“Excellent. Let me introduce myself. I am the Nightmare Crow.”



Character Spotlight: Captain Rafe Morrow

Hello, I am Captain Rafe Morrow, and I was asked to tell you a bit about myself.
Well, I was born Morrannan, the God of Souls, with all the magic and duty that entails, into the worlds of the Outer Islands and the Seven Kingdoms. While I am indeed a god, these days I wander the mortal realm, in command of the best ship on the seas, the Celestial Jewel. She’s a magical vessel, and my crew and I are the keepers of lost souls and of the After World realm. We’ve been through many a harrowing adventure together and I couldn’t wish for a better crew.
For the longest time, our undertaking was to rescue the souls of drowned sailors from the sea monsters of my sister, the Moon Goddess, but lately, things have changed. Those monsters don’t roam as much, but new threats have come to take their place. More and more, the world of the gods has intruded into the Outer Islands, a world I thought I left behind when I was exiled from my former home on the Isle of Shadows.
I suppose I should talk about that a bit, my former home, and my family. I may not look it, but I am several centuries old, and quite a bit of that time was spent on the Isle of Shadows, home of the gods, or in the After World of the dead. Both places are connected, a part of each other, as are all the otherworldly realms.
I spent my youth without many friends, although my sister, Manume, Goddess of the Moon, and I were close then. What I am, what I can do, made people afraid, I suppose, and they avoided me, but I take my powers over life and death very seriously. I would have never hurt anyone. However, what’s done is done, and I lived my early years as somewhat of an outcast.
Perhaps this is why I had such a fascination with mortals instead of gods, and why I began making frequent trips to the mortal world. Unfortunately, this also became the excuse my father used to exile me about four hundred years ago, but it all worked out as I love my new life here in the Outer Islands. Although it did lead to my biggest regret: the falling out I had with my sister, Manume. Those wounds still hurt, but are healing now.
And what about my family you ask? Well, I have four sisters. Two full blood siblings:  Manume, the Goddess of Moon, and Bevire, Goddess of the Night and Shadows, and two half-blood siblings:  Lynna, Goddess of the Sea and Aryna Goddess of the Wind.
I also have an aunt, Cylla, Keeper of the Gate in the Isle of Shadows, as well as an uncle, Krodon, and several cousins. My grandfather is Ulerne the Hunter, my mother is the Goddess of Death and my father is Reis, Sovereign of the Gods.
As for me, I like a little adventure, with my ship under my feet at full sail and the wind at my back. And when it’s all done, to relax in the shelter of a quiet night on calm seas with a fine glass of wine or a shot of rum. Come and join me, a night sail is always better with company.
