Blurb:
It’s been less than four weeks since Vex received a wedding cake facial, and Azure is close to breaking point. Trapped ruling a species just like herself, she feels a rage unlike any she’s ever known, and is certain that both she and the Psirens are irredeemable. With Poseidon’s voice still ringing in their ears, Vex finally finds the courage to reveal what he was trying to tell her the night of the Fischer wedding, and it might be just in time. Can Vex help Azure become the ruler that Poseidon expects of her; the ruler he knows she can be, and perhaps lay his own past to rest along the way? Or will the darkness consume them as they journey to a small English town in search of the last remnants of Azure’s long-lost daughter?

Join this dark duo as they learn not only whether it is possible to fight, but feel, by embracing the very shadow that makes them who they are.


Title: The Tidal Kiss Trilogy
Author: Kristy Nicolle
Genre: Adult Fantasy Romance
Expected Release Date: December 2017
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:
THE KISS THAT KILLED ME
When Callie Pierce turns 18 she has three very simple goals; avoid her stepfather, escape to an Ivy League university of her dreams and party with her friends. But on a night like any other, when the moon is full over the ocean, her life changes in a way that nobody ever sees coming. On the sandy beache
s of San Diego she meets Orion, a man with whom she cannot stay away, to whom her return becomes as inevitable as the tide kissing the shore. If that isn't enough, a kiss which changes everything plunges Callie head first into a world of Mythic responsibility, epic danger and heart stopping romance. The Mer, an ancient race of warriors brought forth to defend the seas, show her wonders beyond what is humanly possible, forcing her into an archaic chain of events that bring together power, seduction, violence and beauty in a terrifying yet exhilarating mix. Then there’s The Banished to contend with, a group of Psirens, corrupted by the Oceans abyss, that stand to destroy the eternity Callie has been promised. Will she sacrifice herself for the greater good, or is the gravity that pulls her to Orion just too great to bear?

THE KISS THAT SAVED ME
Four months have passed since the night Callie Pierce fulfilled her destiny as the Vessel and her world is shifting faster than ever before. The Occulta Mirum is in disarray, still reeling from the demise of its longest reigning monarch and its people have a decision to make, on which more lies balanced than they know. As Callie and Orion rise together to new responsibility, dealing with the consequences of what has passed, Callie finds herself changed and looking into the shadow of the deep for answers. The life she’s been thrown into isn’t what she expected, and as the responsibility of her new found position among the mer mounts, the cracks in the fantasy world she so loves are starting to show. Can then, the dark mystique of the Psiren’s world be what Callie was destined for all along?

Get ready to ride into the world of the Occulta Mirum at greater depth than ever before. As Callie learns the truth of the ancient agenda of three brothers, and comes face to face with the temptation and allure of what will seemingly save everyone she loves.


THE KISS THAT CHANGED ME
As two brothers reach the final phase of their plan to seize the stolen powers of a God made flesh, the Psirens lay claim to the debris of the Occulta Mirum. With this, a race against the rising blood moon l begins.

As the seconds tick away, Callie and Orion must journey to the farthest corners of the earth, learning to balance devotion and duty whilst reuniting the segregated Kindred of the Circle of Eight. If this is not enough the function of the conduit is still unknown, meaning Callie and Orion must learn democratic flair in multicultural waters to convince others to risk their lives as well. With their foretold future together in the balance, their unity has never been so crucial and one’s willingness to sacrifice the other for the greater good never more necessary.

Can the journey of an immortal lifetime hold answers to salvation, or will it only bring the mer to their final resting place as their race is threatened with extinction.

Blog Tour: Slasher Sam




Horror
Date Published: March 31, 2017
Publisher: Darkwater Syndicate, Inc.

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Beware: this book is not for the faint of heart, the weak of stomach, or the soft of bowels. In these pages are the blog entries of one of the most depraved serial killers of the 21st century—Slasher Sam.

Taking inspiration from several generations of horror films, Sam guts countless victims in creative ways, and posts these exploits to SlasherSam.com for the world to see, putting readers so close to the action that they’re practically in the splash zone when the blood goes flying.

And is there ever blood—Sam’s a savvy killer, too well-versed in horror film lore to make rookie mistakes, which is why the kill count scores well into the double digits.

Visit www.SlasherSam.com if you dare, just remember: in cyberspace, everyone can hear you scream...

Review: Twisted, and satisfying! Just the way I like it! While I admit, I'm not a horror flick buff, I do enjoy plenty of gore and bloodshed in my books, and this one hits both with a darkly, humorous flair! I love a serial killer with a great sense of humor, and Slasher Sam has that and more! So good! With bits of homage to the 'classics' in horror of the 80's, and plenty of new material, this one is sure to please!

Blog Tour: Essential Elements


YA Bound Book Tours is organizing a Blog Tour for: Elemental Lies (Essential Elements #2) by Elle Middaugh. This tour will run from September 18th to 29th. Check out the tour schedule below.

Elemental Lies (Essential Elements #2)
by Elle Middaugh
Genre: YA Fantasy Romance
Release Date: July 24th 2017
Pronoun

Summary:

Valerie Moore is an Elemental, a person who commands one of the classical elements of wind, water, fire, or earth. She’s special, though. She controls two—fire and water—though sometimes it seems like they control her



After the accidental exposure of Elementals to humanity, Valerie finds herself—and all of her kind—struggling to attain equality. Three different groups fight to secure leadership, and with all of their hidden agendas, she doesn’t know which side to choose. The balance between peaceful cohabitation and all-out war is precarious, at best. 


When a chance meeting brings Val and earth Elemental Cade Landston back together, everything changes. She realizes what she knew in the beginning—that he’s the one she wants. Her desire to win him over draws her closer to him, and his vengeful mission to hunt down her murderous grandfather brings them both closer to trouble.

From mysterious doppelgangers to reckless rescue missions, scapegoat bombings, and evolving Elemental powers, Valerie strains to keep up. 

All she knows is she must stop her grandfather at all costs. To do so, she has to figure out the truth. But how can she, when almost everyone she knows has been telling lies? 


Book One:
Elemental Secrets (Essential Elements #1) by Elle Middaugh
Release Date: November 11th 2016

Summary from Goodreads:

Navy brat, Valerie, makes friends at a high school in the secluded mountains of Pennsylvania, only to discover that they have supernatural Elemental Powers, in this YA Fantasy Romance.

“This book is “Avatar: The Last Airbender” meets “X-Men” in a high school.”
– Hey, It Was Free!

“If you like elemental persons, if you like SYFY, if you like YA, this book is for you. If you don’t like any of those, then you are missing out!”
– Kelly’s Nerdy Obsession

Valerie Moore is a beautiful, headstrong girl with below-average social skills and above-average anxiety (including a flair for overanalyzing).
With her mother long deceased and her father recently deployed, she is sent to live with her eccentric aunt in a tiny town nestled in the mountains of Pennsylvania. Being a Navy brat has made her into a bit of a loner, and making friends certainly isn’t her strongest suit—as if the life of a typical teen isn’t hard enough.
Torn between the conflicted heartbreaker next door, the persistent jock at the top, and the rugged college bad boy, Valerie finds it almost impossible to choose just one guy.
Her love life isn’t her only problem, though. She soon discovers she’s not a typical teenager—not by a long shot.
Secrets are revealed about her family, her newfound friends and relationships, and her whole world…
The biggest secret of all is unveiled when Valerie discovers she has Elemental powers, unleashing a rapid chain of irreversible events.
 

Review: I hesitated on picking this one up, since it's about high-school drama...but I'm glad I did. It did have the whole 'love-triangle' thing, and plenty of teen angst, but I found myself enjoying it. I love the elemental side of the story, and while I wasn't sure about the series after the first book, I pushed on, and really enjoyed book 2! It definitely gets better, and I recommend you give this series a try if it sounds like something you might enjoy!
