COVER REVEAL: Lion's Share by Rachel Vincent

I am so excited for this spinoff series from Rachel Vincent's Shifter series...
Such an awesome series and I just know that this one will be too!!
But today...I am thrilled to be showing you the cover for the first book...
Check it out below!!!

Lion's Share by Rachel Vincent (Wildcats #1)
Publication date: February 23, 2015
Genre: New Adult Paranormal

Abby Wade has a dangerous secret.
Two months ago, she disobeyed an order, but instead of kicking her out of the Pride, Jace offered her a job. Since then, she’s been battling a completely inappropriate crush on the young, hot Alpha. But when accepting his job offer seems like the only way to keep her skeletons safely in their closet, Abby doesn’t hesitate.
Jace Hammond has a big problem.
A rogue is slaughtering humans in his territory, and he must eliminate the threat before the entire shifter species is exposed. There could not be a worse time for Abby to accept a job he only offered as a boost to her confidence. Abby is smart, beautiful, and resilient—more than enough to distract any man from the mission. Unfortunately, she may just be the worst enforcer ever to hold the title.
As they hunt the killer, Abby’s secret becomes a threat to Jace’s authority and to her own life. But the real danger is the grip she has on his twice-shy heart.

Rachel Vincent is the author of the Shifters series and the Unbound series for adults, as well as the Soul Screamers series for teens.

Rachel's next young adult book is THE STARS NEVER RISE, coming from Delacorte in June of 2015, and her new series for adults will debut with MENAGERIE, coming from Mira books in the fall of 2015

Rachel Vincent is a former English teacher and an eager champion of the Oxford comma. She shares her home in Oklahoma with two cats, two teenagers, and her husband, who's been her # 1 fan from the start. Rachel is older than she looks and younger than she feels, and she remains convinced that writing about the things that scare her is the cheapest form of therapy--but social media is a close second.

An unforgettable new series from acclaimed author Katie McGarry about taking risks, opening your heart and ending up in a place you never imagined possible 

Seventeen-year-old Emily likes her life the way it is: doting parents, good friends, good school in a safe neighborhood. Sure, she's curious about her biological father—the one who chose life in a motorcycle club, the Reign of Terror, over being a parent—but that doesn't mean she wants to be a part of his world. But when a reluctant visit turns to an extended summer vacation among relatives she never knew she had, one thing becomes clear: nothing is what it seems. Not the club, not her secret-keeping father and not Oz, a guy with suck-me-in blue eyes who can help her understand them both. 

 Oz wants one thing: to join the Reign of Terror. They're the good guys. They protect people. They're…family. And while Emily—the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club's most respected member—is in town, he's gonna prove it to her. So when her father asks him to keep her safe from a rival club with a score to settle, Oz knows it's his shot at his dream. What he doesn't count on is that Emily just might turn that dream upside down. 

 No one wants them to be together. But sometimes the right person is the one you least expect, and the road you fear the most is the one that leads you home.

Author: Megan Shepherd
Pub. Date: January 27, 2015
Publisher: Balzer+Bray/HarperCollins
Pages: 400

After killing the men who tried to steal her father’s research, Juliet—along with Montgomery, Lucy, Balthazar, and a deathly ill Edward—has escaped to a remote estate on the Scottish moors. Owned by the enigmatic Elizabeth von Stein, the mansion is full of mysteries and unexplained oddities: dead bodies in the basement, secret passages, and fortune-tellers who seem to know Juliet’s secrets. Though it appears to be a safe haven, Juliet fears new dangers may be present within the manor’s own walls.

Then Juliet uncovers the truth about the manor’s long history of scientific experimentation—and her own intended role in it—forcing her to determine where the line falls between right and wrong, life and death, magic and science, and promises and secrets. And she must decide if she’ll follow her father’s dark footsteps or her mother’s tragic ones, or whether she’ll make her own.

With inspiration from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, this breathless conclusion to the Madman’s Daughter trilogy is about the things we’ll sacrifice to save those we love—even our own humanity. 


Montgomery stopped the horses outside a tavern. He came to the carriage door, opening it just a crack to keep the rain from drenching us. “I’m going to ask directions. We can’t be far now.”

We watched him saunter over the muddy street as though he didn’t even feel the bite of freezing rain. A face appeared in the tavern window. The door opened and he spoke to a woman in a wool dress for a few moments, then stomped back through the mud. “This village is called Quick,” he told us. “The manor’s only five miles from here.”

“Did you hear that?” Lucy murmured to Edward, still stroking his hair. “We’re almost there. Just hold on. Everything will be all right once we arrive.”

Montgomery’s eyes shifted to me. Neither of us wanted to remind Lucy that the prospect of Edward’s fever breaking—and the Beast’s reappearance—was almost more frightening than the fever itself. Delirious, he was less of a threat.

“Let’s go then,” I whispered to Montgomery. “And quickly.”

He closed the door and in another moment we were moving again, passing through the rest of Quick. Then all too soon the village was nothing but fading lights. The storm grew and the road became rougher, and all the while Edward’s eyes rolled back and forth beneath shuttered lids.

Thunder struck close by, and Lucy shrieked. Montgomery whipped the horses harder, pulling us along the uneven road impossibly fast, trying to outrun the storm. I twisted in the seat to look out the back window at the pelting rain. A stone fence ran alongside us.

“We must be getting close,” I said.

“Not soon enough,” Lucy breathed. “We’re going to crash if he keeps driving like this!”

The road widened, straightening, letting us travel even faster. Lightning struck close by, blinding me. The horses bolted. Lucy screamed and covered her eyes, but I couldn’t tear mine away. The lightning had struck an enormous oak tree, twisted from centuries of wind. The oak took flame, blazing despite the rain. A smoking gash ran down the trunk—the lightning’s death mark. I watched until the rain put out most of the flames, but it still smoldered, billowing hot ash into the night.

The horses pawed the earth, and I grabbed the window to steady myself. At this wild speed, just hitting a single rock at the wrong angle would send the carriage shattering to the ground. It was madness to go so fast. Couldn’t Montgomery calm the horses?

Just when I feared the carriage would careen out of control, it stopped short, throwing me against the opposite wall. I tangled in Lucy’s limbs as the chains around Edward’s body clinked. Balthazar grunted, jerking awake at last. We scrambled in the bottom of the carriage until the door flew open.
Montgomery stood in the pelting rain. I feared he’d say we’d broken another strut or the horses had gone lame or we’d have to spend the night in the harsh storm.

But then I saw the lights behind him, and the night took shape into a turreted stone manor with bright lamps blazing and gargoyles on the roof vomiting rain into a stone courtyard.

Montgomery’s eyes met mine beneath the low brim of his hat.

“We’ve arrived,” he said.

About Megan:


I’ve been many things, like a professional exchange student, park ranger in Montana, and LOST enthusiast, but what I am now is a writer.

I think it’s fair to say I was born into it. I grew up in the mountains of North Carolina, raised behind the counter of my parents’ independent bookstore, Highland Books in Brevard. Ah, so many free books. But I never thought being a writer could be a real career. After college I thought I’d end up as a foreign service officer somewhere dashing and exotic, like Canada. I studied French, Spanish, German, and Russian and still speak a few of those. Then I joined the Peace Corps and spent two years in Senegal, where I learned a few more languages I’ll never speak again and lived in a mud hut with no electricity or running water. You can probably imagine how that experience went, but if you’re curious, here are the dirty details

It wasn't until a chance aquaintance read something I wrote and said, "have you ever considered being a writer?" that something clicked and I realized it was possible. My husband encouraged me, and I quickly fell head-over-heels in love with writing and children's literature in particular. I started out writing articles, which have appeared in Faces, Appleseeds, and Calliope magazines, and stories for younger children. I soon realized I wasn’t sweet enough to write fiction for that age and found myself writing young adult literature instead, which doesn’t require nearly as many tender moments and includes a lot more cursing.

When I'm not writing, I can usually be found horseback riding, day dreaming at coffee shops, or hiking in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. I love to hear from readers, so please drop me a line!

RELEASE DAY BLAST: Miami Hush Club (Episode 2) by Michelle Warren

I always believed that girls like me didn’t find happily ­ever ­afters.
But despite my sordid past and personal demons, the Miami Hush Club promised to make my every fantasy a reality.
With a membership, they could gift me my dream job, dream car, dream house,
and the perfect life for me and my little family.
They easily sucked me into the madness and twisted me inside out, caging me until I didn’t know right from wrong.
The steep price of entry?
My darkest secret.
There’s only one problem.
Some secrets destroy.
Some crush.
Some fragment.
Some even endanger the ones I love, and the one man I never imagined I would.
Because some secrets, when shared, give power.
And power is a dangerous thing.
Especially when the one pulling my strings, playing god, has the terrifying means to destroy me.
And worst of all, after I’ve given my secret away, I find the only thing that’s left is my wrecked and tortured soul.
But guess what?
Nothing’s safe.
The club can take that too.

Miami Hush Club: Book 2 By Michelle Warren


“Hello, Nicolette,” Casper says slowly, his voice low and seductive.

The timbre of that voice causes my blood to hum with unwanted delight, and I

wrap my arms tighter around my body, rooting my feet to my spot to secure a safe

distance from him.

Not to be outdone by my presence, Alex instantly treats him as an object that

she owns. It’s a clear message for me to stay away. She gives Casper another

lingering kiss, and they both moan with pleasure as her hands travel down the front

of his pants.

With a forceful grasp, she leads him to her room, tugging him by his dick. She

may think she’s in charge, but it’s him who will dominate when they make it to the

mattress—if they make it that far. I expect her bedroom door to slam shut behind

them, but it doesn’t. Instead, they continue their sexual encounter as if I’m not even


Another message: He’s mine.

Like a voyeur, I step to the door and peer in because it’s always me on the

outside of the glass, looking in at and wanting everything that Alex has. Another

reminder: She gets what she wants when she wants it.

That used to be me too, but now it’s only her.

I’m seething that she’s brought Casper here, outraged that they’re still an item

and she didn’t warn me, and furious that I still care. She’ll protect me from

everything else, but not from Casper. He’s the one person she feels for more than

me. Maybe I’m jealous of that too.

He’s already naked and wrapped in her embrace as I watch him, every hard

angle and curve. His abs. His ass. His cock. Perfection. He licks the slope between

her bare breasts, but he’s watching me. Fucking her, but mind­fucking me.

Nothing’s changed.

And though I desperately don’t want to, all I can imagine is his body settled

between my legs, sharp hip bones pressing into my thighs, injecting his soul into

mine, hurting me in the most mind­bending and delicious way as I revel in every


I can practically feel it, but it’s not me.

It’s her. Always her.

Always Alex.

I’m sick. So very sick with envy and disgust that the past is replaying before my

eyes again, and I can’t control myself. Anger and lust races through my veins. Alex

and Casper are moaning and rocking with each other now, hanging over the side

of the bed, half supported by the floor as I zone out yet again, transfixed by what’s

happening and I cannot make it stop. She screams with pleasure and grabs his

ass to gain his attention, but he’s still focused on me.

Michelle Warren didn't travel the road to writer immediately. She spent over a decade a  professional Illustrator and designer. Her artistic creativity combined with her love of science fiction, paranormal and fantasy led her to write her first YA novel, Wander Dust. Michelle loves reading and traveling to places that inspire her to create. She lived in South Beach, Miami for six years, which inspired the Miami Hush Club, but currently resides in downtown Chicago.

RELEASE DAY BLITZ: The Second Jam by Lila Felix

*This is Book One of the Love and Skate spin-off series.*

For months, Cyrus Black has been in hiding. After ruining his cousin’s chances of college, he goes from job to job, from place to place, making sure he doesn’t have to face them—or himself.
Beatriz Morales is set. She has a plan, a schedule, and a dream. Life has thrown her a few curve balls, but nothing keeps a derby woman down.
She’d never admit it, but she’s stretched too thin. Something has to give.
Love doesn’t just choose a person to see our strengths—sometimes love chooses the person we trust with our weaknesses.
The choice is hers. 

Amazon /  Barnes & Noble  /  iTunes     

 I am a stay at home mom from the South and wife to the most giving and hard working husband ever.  I love to cook and try out new recipes even if they don't always turn out like I want them to.  I refer to my kids lovingly as the Three Stooges as they are constantly coming up with new ways to reek havoc in the house.  Most recently that included putting a rubberband on the kitchen sink sprayer so it would douse me when I did the dishes.  I love to go to roller derby bouts and read in my spare time.  I write mostly at night when the house is silent and I can sneak cookies without having to share!  If you're into stalking, try under the Cypress trees in the swamps of Louisiana, but watch out for gators!!

Lila Felix has done it again...
Her Love and Skate series is totally phenomenal and being able to continue on with the next generation is just AWESOME!!!!
The derby girls are so much fun to read about. They are ever witty and strong.. just the right type of heroine you love to read about...
And then you have the male lead that just makes you go weak in the Cyrus Black...
Complete swoon worthy...*sighs heavily*

The Second Jam is a beautiful love story and it gripped my heart from the beginning...and absolutely that feel good read that leaves with a huge amazing smile on your face...
A definite must read!!!
