Author Carlyle Labuschagne & GIVEAWAY

I have for you today .... The Awesome Carlyle Labuschagne!!

Author of : 
Dead of night coming October 2014
Absolution coming November 2014

Carlyle will be at UtopYA Con in Nashville this year and I asked her.... What are you looking forward to MOST at UtopYA? 

What am I looking forward to the most at UtopYAcon? – EVERYTHING.

Coming aaaaalll the way from South Africa you know I have to be looking forward to soaking up each and every minute. In South Africa book fests are far a few between, but something of this magnitude, energy and amazingness – is non-existent. 
The best part is – it will be like visiting long lost family. I ve been virtually connected to most of the authors attend for a good 3 years now. There has been talk of me flying over and having a writers retreat to meet up with some of the authors. Now I have my chance and in abundance I might add. I will get to hangout with all of my author friends (AKA heroes). I will learn from those who I have admired for a very long time. But for me personally, I will advance in my career tenfold. The knowledge and experience I bring back from the USA is unfathomable. And when the hard work of attending the great panels, showcasing my work in the exhibition halls, and signing books (real hard work) I will get to celebrate with my new family after the awards – we are all going to look so pretty in our awards dresses!
And sure I have had swag designed before, but its been a fraction of what I have planned for the con. 95% of my readers and fans are from the USA so shipping my swag has not been easy or cheap. Now I get to go to one of the most exciting cons ever! Im done with bookmarks and gift vouchers I get to go with buckets full of trinkets to shower my fans with. The pre – journey has been exciting – UtopYA is going to blow my mind! 

Cant wait to see you there!

I'm very excited to meet her there! For now and if you cannot attend here is where you can find her and her books on the web

REVIEW of Jordyn by Tiffany King

Jordyn (A Daemon Hunter Novel)
By: Tiffany King

Hand to hand combat training: Check 
Cardio and strength training: Check 
Daemon hunting: Check 
Anomaly: Check 

Check, check, check, check...That's all my life is. There's nothing ordinary about me. I'm "special." I know this because I'm reminded of it every stinking day. I can kick a Daemon's ass with both hands tied behind my back. I can run up a mountain without breaking a sweat. Know what I can't do? Get guys to notice me, or hang out with friends like normal people do. I can't just be ordinary because I have an Arch Angel for a mentor who is always breathing down my neck, and a family of angelic Guides and Protectors who scrutinize every little thing I do. Just for a day I want a life where I'm no longer some anomaly, where I don't have to feel like a lab rat. 

And then I met Emrys. Okay, so my mentor and family hate him, but probably for good reason. After-all, he is a Soul Trader, and they aren't the most trust worthy beings. But, he is sooo hot with his green eyes, leather jacket and the sexiest tattoo you've ever seen running down his back. And-he doesn't treat me like a project. 

I've got myself in quite a little quandary here. Choosing between my responsibilities, and the Trader that holds my heart is something I didn't sign up for. Torn between two different worlds, I must now decide who to trust and who to walk away from. What's a girl to do? See what I mean? I am an anomaly. I am Jordyn. 

Get Jordyn NOW FOR FREE!

Stalk Find Tiffany King on the web: 


Tiffany hasn't disappointed yet... and Jordyn is NO different! Talk about an action packed thrill ride! From the get go you are pulled into Jordyns world and you better buckle up for the ride. I cannot tell you how much I loved this book it was like.... 

Amazing doesn't begin to describe it. I couldn't put it down.... The story line is perfectly paced, filled with action, good v/s evil, intrigue, and hottness. When I started and met Jordyn I was blown away by what a kick-ass girl she was. All I kept picturing in my head was ......

Throw some dark hair on the gal and yepp she is my Jordyn LOL. She is smart, funny, cunning and cocky. I completely fell in love with her from get go. She is faced with things that no one else is and yet she takes it all and kicks it in the face. Then in walks Emrys.... Holy Smokes Batman!

Emrys is a hot, sly, and so many other things all rolled into his Awesomeness. Jumping around places with Jordyn much to the dismay of others is a fun thing to read and enjoy.This girl fell for him fast... and he is now one of my book boyfriends! 

All of the other amazing characters are so fully realized, not one is a throw in there to fill space. You will adore most and question some but mostly you will fall in love with EVERYTHING that is Jordyn.

Toward the end all I can say is this was and still is my reaction...

along with my heart that went and looks like this now....

Dare to Resist
Dare to Resist

By New York Times Bestselling Author Laura Kaye

May 12, 2014

Trapped and tempted, this battle of wills rages all night long…

KadyDresco and Colton Brooks click on a level that defies logic. There are only two problems. One, he’s her older brother’s irritating best friend, and two, they're bidding on the same military security services contract.

When the competition heats up, Colton is torn between wanting to strangle Kady (and her annoying brilliance) and kissing her into submission. Which is a bad idea for a million reasons, because Kady’s submission is exactly what he craves. Being trapped in a tiny motel room with the object of his darkest fantasies will require every ounce of his restraint.

Kady doesn’t want his restraint, but Colton knows better. She deserves love, marriage, and a white picket fence—three things Colton can’t give her. But her proximity and the memory of their steamy near-miss three years ago slowly destroys his resolve. And he’s not sure how much longer he can keep his hands off…or his heart closed.

About the Wedding Dare Series:

When four bridesmaids dare one another to find lust—or maybe even love—at the destination wedding event of the year, the groomsmen don’t stand a chance. But little do the women know, the men are onto their game, and sparks will fly alongside the bouquet.

Four bridesmaids. Four groomsmen.

Four New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling authors. Long-carried torches, sizzling new attractions, and forbidden conquests will ensure a wedding never to be forgotten.

Review & Giveaway : The Gate Keeper's Saga by Eva Pohler

The Gate Keeper's Sons (Gate Keeper's Saga #1)
By : Eva Pohler
Teen & YA

Fifteen-year-old Therese watches her parents die. While in a coma, she meets the twin sons of Hades—Hypnos (the god of sleep) and Thanatos (the god of death). She thinks she's manipulating a dream, not kissing the god of death and totally rocking his world.

Than makes a deal with Hades and goes as a mortal to the Upperworld to try and win Therese's heart, but not all the gods are happy. Some give her gifts. Others try to kill her.

The deal requires Therese to avenge the death of her parents. With the help of Than’s fierce and exotic sisters, the Furies, she finds herself in an arena face to face with the murderer, and only one will survive. 

Wanna learn all about Eva Pohler? Here is where you can find her.....

Let me start off by saying I went into this book not knowing a thing about it! It's a FREE e-book and Eva will be going to UtopYA in Nashville this summer so it was on my list :) 

Review : 

From get go this book ROCKED! It's one that once you start you will NOT want to put it down. Eva weaves a great story and makes you feel the feels. This to me is a great story and suitable for everyone, young and well not young lol.

There is mythology mixed in with everyday life and it's done so so well. Well paced and detailed just right I give it a Supa 5 Stars.

I loved Therese from the start. She is amazingly written and a very cool chick. She is smart, fun, lover of animals and just amazing. She is spot on with the way that any 15 year old would act or react to things going on around her. Did some of the things she did make me go..... NO don't do that! Yes, but like I say spot on for her age :)

Than and Hipp ..... Oh WOW Hottness abounds with these two. I enjoyed Hipp and fell for Than. They have two very different outlooks on things, and you can see why. I won't spoil anything but yeah Than is my new book boyfriend. He is smart, kind, loyal and did I mention HOT...

The adventure that they set out on is one that will have you on edge and hoping for the good outcome. This is a thoroughly enjoyable read and I suggest you get it Yesterday!

I am going to give one e-copy of  The Gatekeeper's Challenge

Knight of My Dreams by Lynsay Sands & GIVEAWAY

 photo Banner_zpsd8cb045a.jpg

 photo CoverKnightofMyDreams_zps06f5045d.jpg
Title: Knight of My Dreams
Author:   Lynsay Sands
Genre: Romance / Historical / Medieval
Publish Date:  April 29, 2014
Publisher:  HarperCollins
Event organized by: Literati Author Services, Inc.

~ Book Synopsis ~

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lynsay Sands comes a classic short story of a knight in need of a bride…

Lady Alice knows she is not the type to entice a man. She’s too voluptuous, too intelligent, too strong-minded. Why, she even reads! But then Jonathan, Earl of Fairley, arrives at court. Tall, dark and handsome, the knight is any woman’s dream. And he has just been ordered by the king to find a bride…and Alice is to help him!

Jonathan has been evading his mother’s matchmaking schemes for years, so why does she insist that Lady Alice isn’t for him? Alice is only to aid in his search for a bride, yet Jonathan can’t help but be distracted by her glorious hair the color of a sunset, and her figure that is like a lush berry about to burst to full ripeness... Has Jonathan fallen prey to love?


"Are you all right?"

Alice glanced up in surprise at the concern in Lord Jonathan's voice. He wasn't looking at her; his gaze was traveling down her body in the wake of his hands as he checked her over to be sure she wasn't injured. She flushed at the familiar way his fingers skimmed over her, and took a quick step back, nearly tumbling again.

"I am fi-fine," she got out a little breathlessly as he caught her arms to steady her. "Really," Alice added when he continued to look concerned. After a brief pause, he swallowed and nodded, then turned to grab at the reins of his mount.

Her gaze moved distractedly back to the small swatch of blue cloth on the ground by her feet. She was about to draw Jonathan's attention to it, when she was suddenly caught by the waist and lifted onto his horse.

Alice promptly began to protest. "Oh, really, my lord. There is no need for us to ride. I can walk back to the clearing. I—"

At last she gave up her protests, mostly because he was ignoring her. He mounted in front of her and drew her hands around his waist.

"Hold on," he instructed.

Alice nodded against his back, breathing in deeply to try to steady her nerves. It was rather novel to be in such close proximity to a man. She had never done so before. Unmarried women were simply not allowed such familiarity. Of course, this was an unusual circumstance, and…

Her thoughts died as she breathed in the scent of him. He smelled of the woods and the river and…male. It was a surprisingly pleasant mix, she decided, breathing it in again as her fingers interlocked at his middle. Feeling the muscles of his stomach bunch and ripple, she flattened her fingers over them to get the full sensation, then, realizing what she was doing, stopped breathing in embarrassment. Her fingers stilled.

Of course, Alice couldn't go long holding her breath. She managed to do so for the short ride back to the clearing, but there the breath left her in a slow hiss. The place was empty. Lady Fairley and her uncle had not waited for them; they had apparently ridden on ahead. Alice recalled the small swatch of cloth she had spotted near the horses and pondered silently, wondering why Lady Fairley had been by the horses. Surely she hadn't untied Alice's mount and let it go? Had she really been so annoyed with Alice as to wish to have her walk back to the castle?

"Well, we shall have to ride quickly to catch up," Lord Jonathan said.

Alice glanced at the back of his head, then pressed close and held on tightly as he spurred his mount into a trot. She didn't hold her breath this time. Instead she sat, her breasts pressed against his back, her hands clutched at his front, breathing in deeply of his scent. She was enjoying it so much, it took her most of the ride to realize that despite his words, Jonathan wasn't trying very hard to catch up to her uncle and his mother. He had the horse going at a trot, but a rather slow one, really. They had ridden here faster. She was so startled by the realization that she loosened her hold and started to pull away, but he stopped her by catching her hands with one of his own.

"You had best hold on," he said. "I would not wish to see you fall."

Alice wondered at the husky note to his voice, but decided to merely enjoy the ride. She relaxed against him.
