The Redeemable Prince


This is it y’all…the last…one
The last book in the series that was my fall into the rabbit hole that is Indie.
The last book in the series that transformed my life (in the reading sense) in the most amazingly delicious way ever.
The last book in one of the best (in my humble opinion) love stories I’ve ever read.
Like, right up there with Pride and Prejudice good.
Or at least I think so.

And this book WILL NOT disappoint! We have read the love  story of Kiran and Eden (TEAM KIRAN ALL THE WAY THE WHOLE TIME!!!), Avalon and Amelia, Jericho and Olivia, and we finally get to read Sebastian and Seraphina’s story!

Here it is y’all:


Purchase on Amazon:

Seraphina Van Curen and Sebastian Cartier thought they were soul mates once upon a time. But for over a year, they have been well aware of just how quickly love can turn to hate and how cruel fate can be.

They might not be able to stand the sight of each other, but that’s okay since they avoid each other like the plague.

When danger strikes too close to home, and ancient Magic surfaces, they find themselves in the center of a deadly war. Seraphina and Sebastian strike an uneasy truce in order to end Dmitri Terletov, once and for all. They must work together to save what’s left of the Kingdom and protect the people they love most.

Along the way, they discover fate isn’t finished with them yet.

Fate is just getting started.

Season Three, Episode One Blurb:

Zombies- as if that wasn’t enough to ruin any girl’s dream of a happily ever after.

It’s been six months since Reagan Willow fled the Colony and Matthias Allen’s tyrannical clutches. Six months since she broke Hendrix Parker’s heart. Six months since she watched Kane Allen sacrifice his life to save hers.
Whatever was left of her already-tattered life during the Zombie Apocalypse fell apart six months ago. Now, on the cusp of crossing the Mexican border, there is hope that she might lead her friends to a better existence.

Except Zombies are only the beginning of their problems. Reagan and her friends must battle the elements, armies of Feeders and bounty hunters desperate to drag them back to the Colony to face their greatest threat.

The Colony’s power stretches wide and far. Their only hope is to outrun Matthias and get to Mexico.

Love and Decay, Episode One is the first episode in Season Three of a novella series in a Dystopian Romance about Zombies, the end of the world and finding someone to share it with.

Zombies- as if that wasn’t enough to ruin any girl’s dream of a happily ever after.

A vaccination gone oh so wrong and a huge portion of the world’s population was turned into Zombies. Reagan Willow is forced out of her home when her parents become casualties of the horrid Zombie Apocalypse. With the help of her best friend Haley, they’ve become somewhat of experts on surviving the dangers of a world thrust into chaos and decay.

Reagan and Haley are on a vague mission to find somewhere safe to live out the remainders of their terrifying life when they stumble upon the Parkers, a pack of brothers that seem to have the survival thing down in a much more efficient and successful way than Reagan could ever have imagined. They are also protecting their eight year old sister, Page, and will do anything to keep her safe.

The brothers decide that Reagan and Haley need help with being kept safe as well, and as a group they set off to find the Zombie-free utopia Reagan is dreaming of.

Zombies are a daily problem, constantly threatening the lives of their group, but they’re not the only peril on the journey ahead. Militia groups of power hungry men are also a constant concern. And settlements of paranoid, suspicious people turn out to be just as hazardous.

Danger looms over every inch of the way, but Reagan, Haley and the Parkers are determined to get to their goal and remain together. Soon the Parkers become more to Reagan than just traveling companions and more than friendship starts to develop between her and Hendrix, the second oldest brother.

But at the end of the world, nothing can be as simple as life and death. Now, Reagan is going to have to schedule falling in love between hunting and surviving. Hopefully she can last long enough to find out if true love can still exist when everything else has started to fall apart.

Love and Decay, Volume One, is a compilation of the first six episodes in a twelve episode season. It is a Dystopian Romance Novella Series about Zombies, the end of the world and finding someone to share it with.

This story takes place over multiple episodes, with a release date every two weeks. Each episode is approximately 20,000 words.

Henge by Realm Lovejoy is a YA Fantasy that is a modern spin-off of the Arthurian legends featuring Morgan Le Fay as the protagonist. This tour will consist of reviews, interviews & guest posts. Check out the full schedule for more information.

My Review

I am SUCH a sucker for a good paranormal series. Seriously, ever since Harry Potter I cannot get enough of magic in almost all forms and Henge is promising to be a series I will most definitely follow! This reviewer described it perfectly:

“Camelot meets Hogwarts meets Panem in this intriguing, well-written

beginning to a planned YA series.”–Kirkus Reviews

Morgan’s Dream is to became the Maven, right hand to the King. Not only is it her dream, she has actually had visions of this happening…albeit, not so clear visions. So she takes it upon herself to enter into a competition for magic users to start her journey to her dream job. Only, she is not the best there. Oh, she’s the best fire user, but a certain water user is phenomenal at what he can do!

He’s not bad to look at either.

Unfortunately, he may be trying to get rid of Morgan, and if it isn’t him, it’s someone else.

Dum dum dum….

I love that this book has mystery, suspense, magic, and yep…

You guessed it…

a strong and STUBBORN heroin.

Her adventures and her will to win make this book so exciting and I just canNOT wait for the next one! Go get it! You won’t regret it! AND! AND! Enter the giveaway below!

HENGE CoverAbout the book:

Modern-day Camelot. Where knights no longer carry swords. Magic is dangerous. And those who seek control are not to be trusted.

Sixteen-year-old Morgan le Fay is a fire user. An ordinary girl with an extraordinary skill, she has the ability to create and command fire at will. Her dream is to become the Maven—the right hand of the future King Arthur. In the chance of a lifetime, Morgan is selected to join Arthur’s Round, an elite group of young magic users from which the new Maven will be chosen.

Along with the other fire, water, and wind users in Arthur’s Round, Morgan is rigorously trained and tested. The handsome Merlin, a brilliant water user, takes a particular interest in her. Is his friendship to be trusted, or is Merlin simply trying to win the position of Maven for himself? Among the many rivals Morgan faces is the current Maven, Mordred, who seems determined to see her fail.

But Morgan has a secret—years ago, her mother was executed for using fire magic, and Morgan’s desire for justice makes her more than ready to take on the challenge before her. Can she prevail in Camelot’s tests of survival and magic? Only time—and Morgan’s powerful fire—will tell.

Realm Lovejoy’s modern Arthurian series features one of literature’s most complicated and powerful female figures. Henge is the first book in the LE FAY series, and—like Morgan le Fay’s magic—it is sure to dazzle and amaze.

Lush, Hush, & Crush

Does anyone here like the Selection series? Or Hunger Games?
No one, huh?
Just kidding…
I love them, and if you liked them, you LOVE the Lush series!

The other day I got a $20 Amazon Gift card and as hard as I tried to avoid buying $20 worth of books, I did.

My husband predicted it, and I denied it.




I don’t regret one purchase either. The last two books int he Lush series, “Hush” and “Crush” were just two of the many books I bought and they did NOT disappoint!


You can buy the whole trilogy for $5.29, right HERE

What are you waiting for!?!?! GO get it 🙂

Alright, so let’s get into the gritty details…

well, not so gritty.

First, let’s talk about the names. The names of Bluebelle (the main character) and all her girl friends are floral, so her friends are Lily, Petals, Petunia, Holly, and Rosebud….

I’d feel bad for them, except that is the norm in their compound? Country? Place of residence…I don’t know. The guys are all named after nature things like Ash, Stream, Thorn, Blade, Leaf, etc.

I think it is a fun idea, and if you cannot get creative as an author,

What is the point!?!?

Consequently, the names of most, if not all of their parents are fallen cities like Denver, Jackson, Aspen, etc.

I love it.

Little details like these make me happy as a reader.

Moving on.

So, from age 5 until about 17 the girls and boys are separated from each other (even brothers and sisters), and their parents. Parents can visit them on Sundays.

At 17 they can incorporate, which means the guys and girls begin training for their careers. They can also enter into marriage contracts, and find out what brand they are going to get.

Will they be Infertile or Fertile? If you are wealthy it isn’t too big of a deal, but if not, you may as well just give up on life now.

Maybe that is harsh.

Only, Bluebelle is NEITHER! She is LUSH!

Lush with life, which means she can have a ton of children rather than just one.

This couldn’t have happened to a better citizen. She is well behaved, daughter of one of the Council, granddaughter to another of the Council, and doesn’t question a thing.

She is the perfect ambassador to keep Concord’s citizens compliant.


She begins reading a mysterious story that explains some dreams

and she gets a top secret tablet that has her questioning all she has ever known.


This series is GREAT! Go get it and review them on Amazon and Goodreads!



Soul of Fire

Soul of Fire


Caris McRae

Soul of Fire (Chronicles of Quiliaris I)

Ever read a story that you just click with?

You know what I mean? You cannot put it down, and you are left with wanting more?

This is how Soul of Fire was for me. Caris is a brand new author with a bright future…at least I think so.

Let me start with a disclaimer: She is re-editing the book, though it is available for purchase now. However, there are a few editing issues, and I know that drives some people nuts.

However, I didn’t find them all that distracting from the story, and so I am going to recommend this as a great read!

Sheba…poor Sheba. She is neglected and forgotten about, and has been since birth.

She’s a twin, she has a brother, her parents, Royalty, are murdered by a disgusting excuse for a man, and she is hated and abused at her uncle’s.

In comes her other uncle, a Hashisin who recognizes her power, and her neglect. He rescues her and takes her along with him as he travels Quiliaris.

Y’all know how much I love a strong heroine, and Sheba (or Shea, as she is called in the book) is definitely one bad ass heroine.

Her powers alone are awesome, but her character…her character is my favorite thing about her.

Despite the abuse and neglect, she is compassionate. Her trust has been betrayed by every single person she thought loved her by the end of the book, and still she shows compassion.

She’s also clever, and doesn’t put up with crap from anyone.

This book follows her journey as she grows into her own. It’s full of adventure, douche-y princes, not so douche-y princes, battle, magic, god’s meddling in human affairs.

Really, it has it all and you won’t be left disappointed in the least!

Go buy it, read it, and then…AND THEN!!! Review it! Please! Reviews are VITAL to our favorite Indie authors!

Oops! Before I forget, there is also a novella: Emerald Fire, It has some background to the Sheba’s Uncle!

Q & A With Kristen Day!

Hello all my lovely readers! I am excited to introduce you to Kristen Day, who is the author of the Daughters of the Sea series. If you haven’t checked her out, you should!

And on  with the interview!:


So, I JUST recently finished “Forsaken” and I have to tell you, I LOVED it! I just love all things mythology. Have you always been interested in mythology? Who is your favorite god/goddess/person in mythology?

Hi! Thank you so much for having me today! *takes a look around* Your blog is fabulous and cozy and I’m pretty sure that’s a plate of cookies I see hiding in the corner… *steals cookies* I am incredibly excited that you enjoyed Forsaken! Mythology has always been one of my passions – I was the only kid in school that actually LIKED reading the Odyssey and the Iliad. I was also the only kid in school that ate pizza backwards, but I digress. I tend to lean towards the dark side of mythology, which shows in my favorite goddesses which are Nyx (goddess of night), Persephone (goddess of the Underworld), and Selene (moon goddess). I incorporate Persephone and Selene in the Daughters of the Sea series and they are two of my favorite characters. Persephone ‘s an incredibly strong and complex woman, where Selene is just downright evil. But I don’t want to give anything away… *insert evil laugh*

Yep! I make those cookies with a very special ingredient! I love that your make your characters strong, but with heart. Who was your inspiration for Anastasia and Finn? 

Thank you! I believe the two go hand in hand, so I wanted to my characters to harbor a myriad of qualities as well as quirks. Anastasia sort of morphed out of my own experiences and inner voice. As the story progressed, she created herself and her inner dialog is reminiscent of what all girls go through when change and challenges are introduced into their lives. In the story’s purest form, she’s trying to figure out who she is, where she’s going, and who to trust. Thankfully that HottyMcHotterson Finn Morrison makes his entrance and changes her world. He’s based on my idea of the perfect companion. A guy that’s passionate, fiercely protective yet not smothering, strong and still has a sense of humor. His confidence isn’t overly aggressive, but he shows just enough to earn Stasia’s attention.

OH MY GOSH! I use phrases like “HottyMcHotterson” all the time! I love it!  SO, the premise of Forsaken is pretty unique. I mean, I read a lot of books that work in some mythology, but yours definitely takes a different take. Where did your idea for the story originate?

Before I decided to write the series, I’d been searching for a book that I wanted to read. I searched for at least a year but still come up empty. So I it dawned on me one day that I should write it! The books that had the greatest impact on my premise for DotS was House of Night series. To say I was addicted to those books would be a grave understatement. But they were missing an aspect that I yearned for…the ocean. My parents live on an island off of the coast of NC and the ocean has always spoken to me. I created the basis of the story – centered aroundStasia and the rest snowballed from there! It played like a movie in my mind and I could only hope to capture it on paper before it passed me by.

I read that series! Another good, albeit kind of dark series. After reading Forsaken, yours doesn’t seem that dark. Anyway, I read your blog post, “Myrtle Effin’ Beach, Baby”, and it is hysterical! I was wondering if you have any guilty pleasures? Say, a fanny pack hiding in the back of your closet that you visit every once in awhile wishing you could wear it out just once?

How did you know about my fanny pack collection!? Haha 🙂 I wouldn’t call them guilty pleasures so much as RAVING addictions… They call to me at night or when I’m attempting to do something important like color-coding my sharpie collection. Caffeine and sugar.Not necessarily in that order. Mountain Dew is my guilty pleasure of choice, although Starbucks coffee is gaining some steam. My brother owns a coffee shop on Oak Island that has every delectable flavor of the coffee variety an addict could ever hope for. Not surprisingly, my favorite iced coffee there is called the Shipwreck and I dream about it when I’m four hours away, shuffling through the early morning fog that wraps around my brain until noon every day.

  Mmmmmmm, I LOVE a good  cup of coffee. I also love sweet teach, albeit probably not as sweet as I am going to guess you drink it. Just how sweet is your sweet tea? Like instant cavities kind of sweet? Or just enough to take off the bitter edge?

It surpassed the ‘instant cavities kind of sweet’ years ago! I’d say it falls more in the ‘instant root canal kind of sweet’ these days. If by some nightmare-ish circumstance, I’m unable to drink it for a day or two, the iron grip of withdrawal rears its ugly head. My best friend and I actually rank restaurants by the quality of their sweet tea! True story.

Gah…makes my teeth hurt just thinking about it. What is your must have when writing?

Mountain dew! It’s my most favorite writing companion and it never fails me. I also need to have the TV on… not that I watch it nor listen to it, but the background noise keeps me focused. I also sit in the same chair at home while writing with the same low light lamp on next to me. I guess you could call that my ‘writing cave’ (minus the bats and creepy crawlers).

I have always been curious about an author’s writing process looks like, what does yours look like?

Um, it kind of resembles Ian Somerholder? Actually that’s not true at all, but… Ian. Somerholder. *wipes up drool* Anywho, my writing process is all about layers. First I throw up on my keyboard (also known as the ‘storytelling’ portion), then I go back and sprinkle the story with blankets of ‘writing’. That’s when I plump up descriptions, add more inner dialogue, and notice any gaps. Last I do a layer of wordsmithing. No one wants to read the word ‘dark’ 75 times in the span of two chapters. One those three layers have been laid down, I send it to the editor! Lastly, I go through it one more time to make sure the flow is up to my standards. I prefer a flow that’s comparable to poetry or music…It has to roll off the tongue (or mind’s tongue?) with ease.

Wow! That sounds like a ton of work! In your bio you say you paint, what medium do you use? What do you usually paint?

I love abstract paintings and usually paint on canvas with normal acrylic paints, but I also love playing around with craft spray paint. Most of the art I have up in my home are my own creations. I also love photography and playing in Photoshop – manipulating the mundane to make it extraordinary is something I can do for hours at a time with a big goofy smile on my face.

Ahhh, I love photography. I don’t do a ton of editing, but I have seen some amazing work done in photoshop! So, I consider myself to be from the South, thought I KNOW Southern Missouri (where I grew up, though now I live in CO) isn’t any where near as Southern as where you are from. Anyway, I am wondering what is your favorite thing about being from the South?

 What a fabulous question! And a very hard one, I might add… I love many, many things about the south – the history, the traditions, the pace of life, the music, the regional pride (most Southerners would assert that the Civil War is not over – it’s simply halftime), but if I had to pinpoint one thing, it would have to be smells and the sounds. The sound of the cicadas and tree frogs that fill the night, the smell of honeysuckle and azaleas that greet you when you walk out the door, and the comforting smell of southern fried foods.
Oh geez…I am now sufficiently homesick. Let’s lighten up a bit, What i your favorite meme?

Oh I LOVE memes! It’s hard to pick just one, so here are a couple of my favorites… If you want to see more, I happen to be a Pinterest hoarder with a board dedicated to them!



Anyone that has been around me in the morning knows that this is TRUE!!!~Divergent~ ~Insurgent~ ~Allegiant~How do you like your eggs in the morning - Funny Picture

HAHA! Those are great, and you also have some HILARIOUS one’s on your board I hadn’t seen before! Thank you for taking the time do a Q&A! Any last words before we go?

Due to the changes of rights to my work, the Daughters of the Sea books will not be all available until Sept 22nd (Forsaken), Oct 7th (Awaken), Oct 21 (Chosen). But that will give readers time to catch up on the series before the 5th book in the series Eventide is released on November 4th! There will be 6 books total in the series with the final installment releasing Jan 2015. Thank you so much for having me!! I had a great time! May the tide bring you calm seas and sandy toes!!

Ohhhh I cannot WAIT!!!! Thanks again!!! *waves bye*

(Sweet Series #4)
by Bailey Ardisone
…That which starts bitter ends sweet.
What do you do when those you love are about to be executed? You raise Hell.
Nariella Woodlinn has managed to escape death more times than she can count. Frequently saved by the Night Elf she loves and her protective best friend, it’s her turn to return the favor. Those she holds most dear to her heart are set to be executed by the most vile creature in all of Luïnil – their uncle. Armed with determination and a not-so-confident plan, Nari must wage a war that goes against her very genetics in the hopes of stopping their impending doom.
But that seemed like the least of her problems when she is ordered to make Mycah fall out of love with her. Forced to let go of the one person she had ever fully given her heart to, she sets off on her own to mend, until unexpected visitors shock them all.
With their home threatened, Nari’s heart broken, and Ohtar set on the loose – how can any of them ever hope to obtain Redemption?
