Book Tour... Marie Lavendar's Blue Vision

BLUE VISION
By the Best Selling Author of Upon Your Return

Release Date: November 13, 2016

Synopsis:
Brooke Sanders just wants to get away from her life for a while. A remote cabin in Montana fits the bill. She doesn’t expect to encounter a mysterious stranger with unusual blue eyes, or events that cannot be explained…

Colin Fielding is on a mission – scout a planet and return home to Endhivar. Simple really. What he doesn’t anticipate is that fate has a pretty twisted sense of humor. Suddenly, this human calls to him, every part of him, like the call of a true mate, and he can’t deny the connection as he gets closer to her.

Little do they know, someone is out to do them harm, as well as the world Brooke holds so dear. Can they stop what’s coming before it’s too late? Or will the universe lose a perfect gem?

What people are saying:

Amy's Bookshelf Reviews
“Brook is from earth, and Colin is from Endhivar and the connection is beyond chemistry. The story is well written and is very intense. The story takes the reader on a journey to another world, and there is a great deal of suspense, as there is someone lurking in the dark. The fate of two worlds are at stake, and this story keeps the reader on the edge of the seat, waiting to turn to the next page.”

JC STEELE
“Marie Lavender’s Blue Vision: Code of Endhivar Series is an entertaining, well-paced romance read, starring a hunky alien explorer, a rough landing, and a woman on a solitary holiday. The book definitely has a number of strong points, not least of which the author’s undoubted imagination and story-telling ability. It’s also very solid technically, which I always appreciate: there are no typos and other grammatical nuisances to yank a reader out of the story, and the scene-setting is evocative and detailed.

QUE SARA SERA BOOK BLOG
“I love sci fi and romance.  I enjoyed Blue Vision.  The writing was good, the concept was great and the little twists that Marie Lavender put in throughout the book kept me guessing.  Plus, I got a happy little epilogue at the end which always makes me happy.
Brooke wants to get away from things for a while and heads to Montana and a cabin in the middle of nowhere.  Enter Collin…an alien.  Yep, folks.  Collin is a sexy, snarky alien with secrets.  The chemistry between these two was great!
Blue Vision has a lot to offer…aliens, romance, chemistry, secrets and danger.  It’s a wild ride you will definitely enjoy!”

GMR
“this read has all the feels (and then some) that you could imagine with a story to back it up. The author utilizes her writing experience and spins a tale with appeal for sci-fi fans and newbies alike. She gives us the big "what if" as well as the potential for a happily-ever-after, while still having us keep a wary eye on the horizon.”
DelAnne

“I have only just begun reading alien romances within the last year. I found Blue Vision a compelling read. With well developed characters and a solid plot you will find yourself falling into the story. Marie Lavender's writing skills will make you believe you are truly right in the middle of the story as events take place. If you enjoy paranormal romances then be sure to get a copy of Blue Vision for yourself. My only complaint is the ending left me wanting more. ”

J WEISS
“I'm not usually a fan of the paranormal genre but have read books before by Lavender and agreed to be a beta reader for this book. Blue Vision was more enjoyable than I expected even with the paranormal twist. The book flowed effortlessly and kept my interest throughout.”

Hines & Bigham’s Literary Tryst
“Blue Vision puts a romantic and erotic spin on alien/human relationships. There is a little bit of an altercation, but not really any suspense leading up to it. It’s like ‘Bam! Yep, that just happened and now lets continue with the regularly scheduled programming.’ The relationship between Brooke and Colin is unusual since he tries denying his feelings and basically forcing her to forget about him by using one of his not so nice alien gifts; not that it works. After that it just sort of evolves, and considering her holdups on relationships it happens pretty quickly.

To me this can be read as a standalone. There’s a HEA and although you might want more there’s no need for it.”

Blog Tour... Jesse Lorenzo's Marked Series



Forever Marked
Marked Series; Book 1
Published: August 19, 2015
Published by: Jesse Lorenzo


Blurb:

At only 23 years old, Ellora’s life is turned upside down. She captures the unwanted attention of a dangerously ruthless man who’ll stop at nothing until he possesses her. Haunted by nightmares of the brutal attack she barely survived, Ellora flees the country desperate to hide. But the longer she runs the deeper his obsession grows.

Behr is a hard working bachelor whose life is stuck on repeat. That is until a beautiful stranger stumbles into the local pub and into his heart. Even though he is immediately drawn to her raven black hair and deep green eyes, he knows she’s hiding a secret. One he’s determined to uncover.

Can Ellora stay safe in this small harbor town?
Or has the twisted game of cat and mouse just begun?

Excerpt:
Ellora raced down the hallway as fast as her legs could carry her. Dread gripped her when she heard his heavy footsteps pounding on the hardwood floors behind her. His powerful presence echoed around the eerily empty house. It didn’t matter how fast she ran; he was always right on her heels.

Her body quaked violently when she made it to the stairs. If she couldn’t make it out of there, she’d never survive. Reaching out, Ellora gripped the railing with both hands and used the leverage to fly down the steps. He thundered down after her. The smell of his rancid panting breath snaked its way over her shoulder. The stench stung her nose. Ellora risked looking back, finding his large black eyes, vicious with a murderous rage zeroing in on his prey. He was close enough to grab her.

Her heart hammered inside her chest painfully as it worked hard to push her broken body to its limits. Her ears throbbed as he screamed out her name.

Oh my God, this is it. He reached out… And…

Ellora shot upright in her bed, crying out. Her weary body trembled violently as the all too real images continued to torment her. She swiped at her tear-stained cheeks with weak hands.

Unspeakable memories played out in her mind, gripping the sheets tighter, Ellora curled up into a ball and sobbed. After what felt like an hour, the emotionally wrecked girl stumbled out of bed on shaky legs.

“I might as well stay up,” she mumbled to herself.

There was no point in trying to go back to sleep with her heart still pounding the way it was. She sauntered over to her large opened window, glancing out at the breathtaking view along the harbor. Ellora watched as the sun came up casting pink hues through her pale yellow curtains.

The rising sun, a bright burnt orange, looked as though it was climbing right out of the sea. The frothy waves gently rolled to shore, still cold looking from the long winter months. The peaceful rhythmic motions calmed her erratic heart.

Ellora tore her eyes away from the dark blue waters, seeing movement out of the corner of her eye, glancing down at the large man walking out of the pub one floor below. It was Behr.

He stopped mid-stride on the sidewalk, deep in thought. After a few moments, he turned and looked up at her window. He seemed shocked at first, seeing her looking down on him. Behr’s eyes warmed over, a big beautiful smile lit up his features as he took her in.

Lifting his hand in greeting, the large man winked at her flirtatiously. Ellora felt brave enough to openly stare at him from the safety of the second story window. Whether she wanted to admit it to herself or not, Behr was a magnificent man to look at.

What was she going to do with this burly guy who’d barged into her life? She couldn’t wait to find out.

Excerpt:
Behr rose to stand, the soft light from the lamp posts on the pier outside trickled through the window, illuminating beautifully around his immense and imposing frame.  His keen eyes explored the exquisite beauty that lay sprawled out… waiting for him.

Clutching a fistful of fabric, Behr pulled his shirt up over his head and tossed it aside. When his eyes found hers, he was astonished when longing burned hot and bright in Ellora’s eyes. She gazed up at him in the most intimate and vulnerable way, that expression nearly pushed him over the edge. He wanted her in the worst way.

Behr dragged his pants zipper down its track, letting them fall open in a painstakingly slow fashion, as if testing her level of comfortability, but succeeded only in heightening the tension. It hung thick and heavy in the air between them.

There he stood in all his glory, wearing nothing but the thin fabric of his boxer briefs, putting to shame any statue ever carved of the powerful Roman gladiators. Ellora’s heart pounded inside her chest in anticipation as the bed dipped under his impressive weight as he crawled his way over to her.

Hovering over his raven haired beauty, he carefully gauged her reaction to his close proximity. Seeing his hesitation, Ellora pulled him impossibly close, desperately needing to quench the overwhelming need to have his arms wrapped around her.

Behr ran his work-roughened hands up and down her quivering back, trying his best to sooth her. “I’m right ‘ere, love. Always right ‘ere by your side. Nothing can keep me from you. I’m yours for the night.”


Dalton waited until he was sure they were both completely asleep. He crept out of the shadows of his hiding place. He had been waiting there for the last few hours, watching, biding his time, to finally catch a moment alone with Ellora… waiting for the bastard to leave.

His intention was to act upon every fantasy he’s clung to since arriving in this town. Dreaming of doing exactly what that deplorable man was lucky enough to do right now. Dalton’s need to feel her soft body pressed against his, to savor her full lips, made his need to take her escalate to unbelievable heights.

His blind obsession with this girl clouded the reasonable side of his brain. Dalton had an overwhelming craving to slit the bastards throat while he slept for touching her, but the thought of staining her porcelain skin with his repulsive, filthy blood stopped him from going through with the task.

He would enact Behr’s inevitable downfall soon enough. He would come to Ellora on another night. the next time, he would definitely be alone with her. The smell of her delicate perfume beckoned to him, drawing Dalton closer to the Vulnerable young girl.

Dalton needed to taste her lips before he left. He needed this. Just one caress from her delicious mouth and he’d leave. The snake crawled out from the protection of the shadows and inched his way closer to her sleeping form. He stalked across the old wood surface until he hovered over her bed.

His sinister smile grew as he stared down at her tempting body. That smile faded when his eyes adjusted on the ingrate’s arm wrapped protectively around the woman who belonged to him. Dalton kneeled down, settling a mere inches from her face.

“Soon, my love. Soon I will feel the heat of your body wrapped tight around mine. Soon, you will be mine…”
