Divisa Series #4: Loving Angel by JL Weil

Title: Loving Angel
Author: J.L. Weil 
Series: Divisa #4
Publication date: October 2nd 2014 
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

Loving Angel isn’t easy. Actually, it’s downright exhausting, but somehow she weaseled her way into my life. She has become my everything—my reason for existing—my reason for breathing. I love the ever-loving crap out of Angel Eyes. There is nothing I wouldn’t endure for her—even college.

College. Ugh.

I hope the frat boys, the jocks, and the nerds are prepared for what is about to embark on their school this fall. Half-demons. Hunters. And um, the Keystone? Yeah, that is going to take getting used to.

We aren’t exactly your average freshman. And somehow I find myself stuck with a bunch of troublesome females to look after. Angel. Emma. Lexi. Pretty sure I got the raw end of the stick.

But that isn’t the worst of it. There is someone lurking in the shadows—spying and stalking my girlfriend. He is a dead man. How many people am I going to have to kill for this girl? A better question would be how many people wouldn’t I kill for her?

As many as it took.

Angel is about to experience betrayal of the worst kind. And this time, it’s not entirely my fault—shocker.

Don't forget to check out all of the entries in J.L. Weil’s The Divisa Series:  Losing Emma #.5, Saving Angel #1, Hunting Angel #2, Breaking Emma #2.5, and Chasing Angel #3

     For anyone who thought love was easy, well, I’d say they haven’t met Angel.
     Loving Angel…it’s not easy. Actually, it’s downright exhausting.
     I’d never met a single person who attracted as much trouble as she did. It was as if she oozed danger-stalk-me nectar. What was a guy to do?
     Okay. I’ll admit that because of me and what I am, I had put her smack dab in the middle of a demon war, but I swear she does a bang-up job of getting herself in all kinds of gooey situations on her own.
     How many people would I have to kill for this girl? Simple. As many as it took. In all honesty, a better question would be: How many people wouldn’t I kill for her?
     Angel was my every thing—my reason for existing—my reason for breathing. I loved the ever-loving crap out of Angel Eyes.
     Gawd. I think I might have vomited a little in my mouth.
     Mushy thoughts weren’t my forte. Well, before Angel they weren’t. Not a single romantic thought had swirled in my brain. I wasn’t exactly an easy person—scratch that, half-demon to love, but somehow Angel was able to see past my rocky and rough exterior.
     God bless her.
     Being a badass meant I was an asshole more times than not. I had a reputation to live up to, and everything you might have heard…it’s all a hundred percent true.
     In case you’ve been living in a cave, the name’s Chase Winters, and I’m not your average incoming college freshman. Nope. I’m half demon.
     It’s true. My so-called father is a demon with a mega power trip. I might be only part human, but my family is just as screwed up as the next.
     That being said, I finally thought it was time you heard the story from my side. Lord knows Angel fabricates everything.
     For once, it was not entirely my fault that Angel’s life was at stake.
     What a mind-blowing concept.

Author Interview:
When did you start writing?
Oh gosh, that is like asking my age. I started writing in junior high, but nothing serious, just fun short stories here and there. It wasn’t until I was in my twenties that I sat down and began my first novel. My kids were older and I needed a hobby. That hobby turned into late nights at the computer, because I couldn’t get the characters out of my head. I knew from the moment I made the decision, I wanted to write Teen Romance.

What is your favorite writing style?
I am not an outline or a plotter. Plotting makes my eyes go cross. I do take a lot notes. A lot. Usually I have a general idea in my head of characters, settings, and motives. Then I let the story build as I write. Often I write the ending first, so that I have a goal to aim toward.
My favorite writing style is first person. I think my writing style is more of everyday talk. It is not filled with prose. I have a simpler writing style. It is what works for me.

What’s the best thing about writing?
The best thing about writing is the satisfaction when you finish a book and write those two words. The End. I also love getting emails and letters from readers who have read my books. It is my motivation to keep writing.

What do you do when you’re not writing?
I spend time with my family, play video games, and am constantly thinking about my new characters and what kind of paranormal power/gift I could give them.

Do you like reading?
I love, love reading and miss it tremendously, because when I’m drafting, writing, or editing, I never have time to read. You should see my TBR list… *sigh*

Shrapnel's Kiss by Amy Rachiele

Title: Shrapnel’s Kiss
Author: Amy Rachiele
Release Day: November 4, 2014
Genre: Military Romance
Its love and war!
If I don't tell the story now, no one else will be able to tell it for us.  Some people believe in fate, that no matter where you are in the world your soul mate will find you, or you them.  I have to believe that fate wouldn't be as cruel as it seems to me now.

In a war torn Afghanistan, Junie signs up for a Peace Corps assignment involving recently orphaned children.  She wasn't expecting a lavish experience.  She knew it would be primitive and dangerous but it turned out to be way more difficult than she could have imagined.

Captain Tyler Alexander, U.S. Army, Infantry: Mission first and mission ready is his motto, but he realizes it all has a deeper meaning when he meets Junie--a Flower-power Peace Corps volunteer.  Can they have a relationship in the midst of terrorists and firefights?

“I'm not really sure why I did it. Nobody forced me or even tried to convince me. And, I don't think I had a death wish.  I was outside myself and compelled to do something. The loneliness made me restless. I was finally able to put a name to the ache in my chest that was a constant.  It needs an outlet and the hole needs to be filled.  There was something missing besides my family--an uncontrollable desire to get away and even help others if I am able. Sometimes we have to leap and not look down to move forward, especially if we don’t know why we have to.  My blind leap led me to war...  in Afghanistan.”
~Junie, Shrapnel’s Kiss

I am seized with a sense of debilitating queasiness that makes my head spin. This can’t be happening, it is too much to process.  Where is Tyler?  What are they doing to him? Trickles of panic slither down my back in an ugly feeling I have never experienced before. I suck in some dry, stale air to try and find a small part of myself that is calm.  Mom, Dad, if you can hear me up in heaven, help me?  Tell me what to do.  I’m afraid.  I wish they could come and get me out of this caveman nightmare!
~Junie, Shrapnel’s Kiss

I dart my eyes around as panic builds in my chest.  What happened? The familiar loneliness builds and builds as I try to recall the last things I remember.  My eyes shut tight against the memories.  The emotions of fear, vulnerability, and despair sit at the surface— a war inside me. Heat crawled in and wouldn’t leave, keeping me on the edge of combusting.  The onslaught of images raged in me with the faces of our captors, horribly disfigured with holes in their skulls, it replayed over and over.
~Junie, Shrapnel’s Kiss

Tyler is looking at me and a rush of emotion, I didn’t know he was capable of after his abandonment, crosses his features.  Right then and there I knew what I felt for him, he felt for me and it gave me a little peace.  Whatever he was going to say to me, at least I knew for myself that it wasn’t one sided.  I wasn’t crazy.

Blindly, I rummage in the bag for a bottle of water. Cradling her head with my arm, I lift her and pour water into her mouth. Through coughing and sputtering she only gets a little bit.  I rearrange her attempting to make her more comfortable by putting her head in my lap.  A deep fear rolls its way up from my empty stomach. The granola bars we had earlier barely touched the surface of my hunger. In training, there were days when they only gave us one MRE and worked us hard.  It was to prepare us times like these.  I never had any training that used this scenario, lost in the wilderness of Afghanistan with a female civilian sick with fever.
~Tyler, Shrapnel’s Kiss

Junie is exactly the way I left her, unconscious and immobile, but beautiful.  I reach down slipping my arms around her and lift.  Guarded, I carry her, cradling her to me, unaware and limp. A longing to hold her really tight crosses my mind and the image of us curled up in each other’s arms in a large soft bed accompanies it.
~Tyler, Shrapnel’s Kiss

Cover Reveal: Hands Off! The 100 Day Agreement by Candy J Starr

Title: Hands Off! The 100 Day Agreement
Author: Candy J. Starr 
Publication date: December 2014
Genres: New Adult, Romance

One hundred days without sex? Is that even possible?

When I got offered an exchange year to the Italian art school of my dreams, I nearly cried. I could barely afford college expenses at home let alone in a foreign country. I had to decline but my rich, uptight grandmother called with her screwed up offer.

If I agreed to her conditions, she’d foot the bill. So I agreed. I figured she didn’t really care about my sex life, she just wanted me to keep my partying off the radar of her fancy friends.

I was so wrong.

The sexy but annoying Chad moved into my apartment to keep me under surveillance. He’s impervious to my charms and for some damn reason, dead set on making sure I lose this deal.

One hundred days is a helluva long time to avoid temptation – even longer when Chad becomes the temptation.

Author Bio:
Candy J. Starr used to be a band manager until she realised that the band she managed was so lacking in charisma that they actually sucked the charisma out of any room they played. "Screw you," she said, leaving them to wallow in obscurity - totally forgetting that they owed her big bucks for video equipment hire.

Candy has filmed and interviewed some big names in the rock business, and a lot of small ones. She's seen the dirty little secrets that go on in the back rooms of band venues. She's seen the ugly side of rock and the very pretty one.

But, of course, everything she writes is fiction.

She is currently working on Rock Star vs Millionaire - the sequel to Bad Boy Rock Star. Want to know about new releases and secret fan only offers? Join her mailing list.
