Urban Fantasy/Paranormal

Blurb-

“The dark side can save a life, and knows just who to sacrifice for it.” 

Riot Rippons, demi-god and Braider, never forgave the gods for driving his mother to suicide. But carrying immortality and the ability to braid time into new endings has a price all its own – the two create an extreme evil Riot fights every moment. 

But in the darkness is a small pinpoint of light – warning him to save young, innocent, Braiders hidden from the gods to keep mortals safe. The gods found a way to track them, with plans to use the children’s power, and souls, to win ego-driven wars. 

To keep the gods from using the young Braiders and the wars from spilling into his mother’s world, he must embrace his dark side, and ally with the very gods who caused the loss of his mother. 

Riot lands on a path of choice: use the evil to end the wars and get revenge, or save the children from a fate similar to his mother.

COVER REVEAL!!!

Under the Trees 
**Cover Reveal**
Author- Ashley Maker
Genre- YA Historical Romance 


-Synopsis-

Desperate to prevent an abusive arranged marriage, Princess Araya flees to a neighboring kingdom, only to land at the mercy of the impulsive Crown Prince Thoredmund, who provides refuge in a secluded forest and teaches her survival skills. Her surprise at the unexpected hold the price has on her heart mirrors his shock at falling for the one girl he can’t have. 

As the young couple’s feelings for each other grow, the fragile alliance between the two kingdoms threatens to break apart. With a vengeful duke and an enraged king fast on their trail, Thor and Araya must decide how much they’re willing to risk for love. 

Even if staying together means starting a war. 




Excerpts:


THOR quote:
The dark horse tore through the underbrush, bringing her close enough I could make out a pale face and a tangle of long hair. A black cloak billowed behind her. Men on horseback gave chase, darting through the trees, clearly in pursuit. All those men after one girl? Who could she be? My instincts screamed against them catching her. She could be a decoy, and they could all be spies—but what if she was in real danger?
It wouldn’t be so difficult to apprehend her, only one rider, later …
“Let her pass,” I ordered, staring my men down until they stepped aside.
The girl raced past, glancing over her shoulder for a brief moment—her eyes flashing emerald in the light of the fire—before looking ahead and leaning low on her horse’s neck.
My men gaped at me, gripping weapons with white-knuckled hands. With a jerk of my head in the direction of the riders almost upon us, I raised the bow and nocked an arrow.
“Hold the line,” I commanded. “These men stop here.”


ARAYA sword:
Something inside me snapped—boiled over—at the mocking words and spiteful tone. The seething feeling surged upward, clouding my vision. I charged with an infuriated shriek, all movement, shifting and striking, not retreating. He easily deflected the first blow, but the second made him stagger. He faltered back a step, and I lunged with a strength that did not feel like my own.
Resistance met my blade, but it was of a soft nature that gave way. A thin ribbon of blood blossomed through the sleeve on Wendel’s right arm. I couldn’t tear my eyes away from the sight, grim satisfaction twisting like a living thing inside of me.
But I shouldn’t have looked. I shouldn’t have stopped.



Araya’s fear:
Stone. I became cold, hard stone. My thoughts froze and buzzed at the same time, fingers clamping against Thor’s as if somehow he could save me.
“I came as soon as I could. They were watching. It was difficult to get away—”
“They?” I lost control on the word. My voice wavered and broke with my gaze as I searched the darkness of the tree line, eyes darting from one spot to the next. Thor squeezed my hand, a steady pressure, but he did not understand.
The frantic search only ended when I looked up at Thor, heart lodged in my throat. I didn’t want to ask, or face the answer, but I needed to know. “They?”
Thor squeezed my hand again and ran a thumb over mine. “Yes, your father, brother, their guards, and—”
“He’s here, too, isn’t he?” He didn’t have to say it. I knew. I could feel it.


Thor’s inner conflict:
I thought I would be angry with Araya when I returned to camp. A part of me blamed her, even though it wasn’t her fault. Perhaps she should get out of the kingdom and take her trail of problems with her so I didn’t have to cover them up any longer. That was what she wanted anyway, wasn’t it—to go to the districts and leave me?
Then I saw her again.
My throat constricted almost painfully and my chest ached at the sight of her standing on the other side of the clearing. She was humming softly to Major while pulling burrs out of his forelock. The gelding was already saddled and bridled, as if she had just gotten back from a ride or was about to go on one. Major turned his head in our direction and pulled at the reins in her hand, letting out a welcoming whinny to Tosque.
Araya glanced up. She smiled, and I knew. That’s when I was absolutely sure I would continue to help and protect her, no matter what happened, even if it meant risking everything.

Beyond Shame by Kit Rocha



      Now let me start off with this book is definitely for 18 years or older, this book is HOT HOT HOT and very intense. To begin, we have precious Noelle Cunningham the "princess" of Eden belonging to a family of high status. Drugged and staggering she fines herself falling into oblivion in the arms of handsome, caring, and dominating Jasper McCray. Not knowing what she's getting herself into by leaving the high and mighty palace, she learns just what it means to be an O'Kane member. Her new friend Lex starts by showing her the ropes of how to pleasure a man, and what it means to have power in your hands or (mouth).  Then, one night she experiences the life shes been missing, the freedom shes never had, and begins a whole new journey. Noelle begins to become more bold, asking for things that would usually be seen as obscene, but truly is her feeling, never once in her life knowing the meaning of trust and love. Finding herself, experimenting with chains, pearls, and spankings becoming more of the woman she sought to be, but when daddy comes back to get her, her trust in Jasper is put to the test, in this never ending tale of passion, trust, and submission.

Excerpt from Goodreads:
All Noelle Cunningham has ever wanted is a life beyond–beyond the walls of Eden, where only the righteous are allowed to remain, and beyond her stiflingly restrictive existence as a councilman’s daughter. But only ruins lie outside the City, remnants of a society destroyed by solar storms decades earlier.

The sectors surrounding Eden house the corrupt, the criminal–men like Jasper McCray, bootlegger and cage fighter. Jas clawed his way up from nothing to stand at the right hand of Sector Four’s ruthless leader, and he’ll defend the O’Kane gang with his life. But no fight ever prepared him for the exiled City girl who falls at his feet.

Her innocence is undeniable, but so is their intense sexual attraction, and soon they’re crossing every boundary Noelle barely knew she had. But if she wants to belong to Jas, first she’ll have to open herself to the gang, to a dangerous world of sex, lust and violence. A world where passion is power, and freedom is found in submission.
