Did we forget your a cocktail? Imbibe the latest werewolf romance from Lisa Kessler.



BLUE MOON by Lisa Kessler

She’s his muse, his mate, and she’s completely off-limits.

He’s a jerk, a recluse, and her newest assignment.
Until he broke her heart, Vivianna Lopez loved Logan Reynolds.
Five years later, she’s an aspiring music journalist and he’s the camera-shy lead singer of Logan and the Howlers.
Armed with a backstage pass, Vivi’s back in her hometown of Reno, nestled in the shadows of the Sierra Nevada mountains. She must score an interview with Logan to land her dream job - otherwise it’s back to Boston, with no scoop and no job. It’s just business–at least that’s what she keeps telling herself.
Logan still loves Vivi, his soul mate, but there’s something even she doesn’t know about him: He turns into a werewolf every full moon and a secret organization is hunting down his Pack.
Vivi may not have Logan’s senses, but she can sniff out that he’s hiding something. He knows it’s only a matter of time before the truth about him - and his Pack - is revealed. And then he really will lose her.  Buy link: Amazon


Pam Moran has written a feast of books revolving around the PSI Sentinels—here's a juicy blurb from her latest fast paced, paranormal thriller. 




DARKWATER ECHOES by Pam Moran 
PSI Sentinels: Darkwater Guardians

Blackwater Sound – Key Largo, Florida

Echoes across a dark body of water, echoes from the past, echoes haunting the future.

FBI Agent Trent Sawyer is supposed to be cooling his heels after an unsanctioned operation. A case, both personal and dangerous, that ripped away his psychic ability and left him unsure of his place on the covert PSI Task Force. When the boat he’s on is hijacked, he chafes at orders to rely on the reluctant assistance of tiki-bar owner Jillian Rose.

Trust is hard won in Jillian’s world. The last thing she needs is a stranger underfoot, a man with secrets darker than the Sound on a pitch black night. A man with the ability to crack her carefully constructed shell, a man she’s having a hard time resisting.  Buy link: Amazon

FLETCHER’S FLAME
Last Chance #3
Read a little, Buy the book

High pitched whining followed by someone running down the hall upstairs made it clear her apartment building was on fire. The three-story building was at least a hundred years old, one of the reasons she moved into it, but it would go up like a tinder box.

Stay calm. Nothing ever came of panicking. It’s no different than the time you were on that cliff with the baby deer.

She turned on her lamp before running through her bedroom. As she rounded the corner into her tiny vestibule, she hit her bare thigh on the small table against the wall. Stupid thing. Rubbing her leg, she finally reached her apartment door. She unlocked both locks and pulled it open.

Smoke billowed in, smothering all her senses before she slammed the door shut, coughing as the foreign matter filled her lungs. Not good.

Quickly, she ran into the kitchen, grabbed the hand towel and soaked it with water. She brought it to her face and hurried back to her door.

Here goes nothing.

As she opened the door, smoke streamed in and she dropped into a crouch. Stay low. Remember the barn fire in Maryland. Smoke rises. After the initial billow, she found she could stand without too much smoke. Looking up, she froze.

Hell. I’m in hell. Black smoke covered the hallway ceiling, billowing like an upside down wave, slowly lowering. Yellow flickers lit it sporadically like heat lightning in the clouds on a summer evening.

PASSION OF SLEEPY HOLLOW

Kat closed the door to her room and leaned against it. Her heart raced so fast it could beat a squirrel up a tree. Licking her lips, she closed her eyes. Braeden’s kiss brought back all those wonderful feelings she used to have with Brom. The ones where her toes curled inside her buckle shoes and her body quivered.

She crossed her arms over her stomach. She hadn’t had those with anyone else since. Not even slightly. What was she going to do? She’d been desperate to get away, and now he would be staying the night. She opened her eyes. Staying in her room. Oh Lord.
Moving to her chest at the end of the bed, she pulled out a pillow and threw it on the floor. She’d already changed the sheets because he was supposed to leave. It had been so hard not to bury her face in his unique scent. It reminded her of the forest after a rainstorm, musky, comforting, making her want to snuggle in for a winter hibernation.
Ugh, what was she thinking? He was Stephen’s brother, a Newtimer, and he would leave tomorrow.

Oh no. The village would be long gone by then. What would happen to Braeden then? She glanced toward the door, listening to the floorboards creak under his weight. Quickly, she pulled her quilt from the chest and grabbed the pillow.

Too late.

The door opened and he ducked inside, obliterating the opening from her sight. He stood stock-still, studying her once again. The lantern light softened his features, proving how different he really appeared from Brom.

Straightening her shoulders, she stepped toward him. “Your room is all set. I’ll just make my bed in the parlor.”

He didn’t move, and she couldn’t go through the door unless he did.
“Braeden? You need to step aside for me to leave.”

“And what if I don’t want you to leave?”

Her breath caught in her throat as tingling sped from her head to her toes. She swallowed hard. “What do you mean?” She turned away to give herself a moment without looking at his handsome visage. “Did I forget something?”

The floor creaked behind her and she stepped forward to inspect the water pitcher. If he touched her again, she’d be lost. She turned to review the bed. “I assure you these are clean sheets.”

The door closed.

She spun and the quilt knocked the pitcher off the table onto the floor with a crash. “Oh no.” She knelt, suddenly wanting to cry, though the pitcher wasn’t anything special. In fact, it had a crack along the handle and was bound to break soon anyway.

“Come. It’s okay.” Braeden’s hands on her arms helped her to stand and sent fire through her already taut nerves.

Gently, he enveloped her in his arms. Her heart slowed as a feeling of rightness settled through her. With her face against his chest, she could hear his strong heartbeat.

“Kat.” The soft-spoken word came from deep within him and she met his gaze. “Don’t be mad at me.”

The loneliness she glimpsed in his eyes undid her. Before she could think about what she did, she hooked her hand around his neck and pulled him forward for a kiss.

MAGIC & MAYHEM ...a Kindle World

WELCOME to ROBYN PETERMAN's
MAGIC & MAYHEM Kindle World
What's a Kindle World? 
In Robyn's own words...

It’s basically fan fiction written by some amazing authors that I stalked and blackmailed! KIDDING! I was lucky and blessed to have some brilliant authors say yes! They have written brand new stories using my world and some of my characters. And let me tell you…the results are hilarious!
xoxo Robyn
There's nothing normal about Zelda, a witch whose job is to control the forces of Magic and Mayhem, and use her power for healing. But some say she creates the mayhem part, and maybe they're somewhat right. After spending nine months in the witch pokey for using her powers irresponsibly, Zelda is out on magical parole. Ready to dump the orange jumpsuit, she sets off on her latest mission: avenge the death of her Aunt Hildy, maintain the magical balance, and take over as the Shifter Whisperer. 

This all turns out to be far easier said than done, though. While healing the idiotic and violence prone proves both painful and wildly rewarding, Zelda must also contend with the hotter than hot Werewolf King, Mac, who's convinced Zelda is his mate. As Zelda chases her happily ever after, she tries to help tons of wonderfully warped characters who need all the fixing they can get. Are you up for the bewitching challenge? There's enough Magic and Mayhem here for everyone to join Zelda in her crazy world.

The next installment to Magic & Mayhem is available for $1.99 each. Here's a peek at the new stories and their authors. I asked the authors what was the favorite Magical & favorite Mayhem element of their story?

H.M. McQUEEN
Reality Shift
Southern Shift Book 2

CHERIE MARKS
Wicked Is As Wicked Does

Favorite Magical element of your story: I loved how my badass heroine, Evie, was a big sap when it came to her magical familiar, a cat named Clooney! Named after Nick, not George, surprisingly. 

Favorite Mayhem element of your story: Oh, so many! Probably when Evie meets some of the shifters and Fat Bastard. She's not quite sure what to make of them, but it was so fun to write that scene.

Describe your story in five words: Always love who you are!


RENEE GEORGE
Witchin' Impossible 2: Rogue Coven
Witchin' Impossible Mysteries

Favorite Magical element of your story: My favorite magical element in Rogue Coven is when my main character Haze Kinsey tries to heat her cup of coffee with a little magic, and she ends up burning a hole through the granite topped center island, the floor of the house, and possibly right through the earth’s core. I’m almost certain there’s a few Chinese citizens with burnt toesies right now.

Favorite Mayhem element of your story: Clowns.

Describe your story in five words: Hocuspocus, high-jinks, BFF-banter,  schmatlzy-smooshing, and daring-action. (Some of my best magic was turning ten words into five).

SARANNA DeWYLDE
Risky Witchness

Favorite Magical element of your story: All of it? I can't pick one magical element. It's all wild and I had such a great time writing this. *whispers* Okay, I lied. It's the insta-orgasm powers my demon has at the snap of his fingers after he gets his power back. 

Favorite Mayhem element of your story: This one was much easier. Shifter strippers. I mean, can you imagine a giant bear shaking his cakes on a pole?

Describe your story in five words: A nutball, sexy good time.


CLAUDY CONN
Witchin' Hard

Favorite Magical element of your story: I love mind-linking between the characters. I suppose because when hubby walks into the kitchen with muddy boots, I am hoping he can hear what I didn't say. 

Favorite Mayhem element of your story: Fat Bastard. I can just picture him strut his stuff.

Describe your story in five words: Sexy, funny, tricky, witchy--oh and did I say sexy?
