Anime Review: Witchblade

Guest Post/Giveaway - The Protector by Vanna Smythe

Today, Vanna Smythe is going to talk about her book The Protector, Book One in The Anniversary of The Veil Series.

Will Love Restore the Balance?

Protector is based on two things: twin souls and the energy of love. The belief in twin souls, that is a soul mate in the form of your one true love, existing somewhere in the world and pulling you towards them relentlessly and ceaselessly is the underlying theme of Protector, and the entire Anniversary of the Veil series. Only, in this world that I created the energy released when two twin souls find each other is used for purposes that are not altogether enjoyable for the pair.

In my world, for centuries Joinings of such strong love, and the energy they release, have been used to build bridges and tall buildings, stem the flow of rivers, even change the duration and force of seasons. One thousand years ago, energy from one such pair was used to separate the world in half by a barrier only a select few can cross. On one side of this barrier, …

Review: Wicked As They Come By Delilah S. Dawson

Published: March 27, 2012
Format: Paperback
Series: Blud #1
Available: Barnes & Noble and Amazon (eBook & Paperback)

Book Blurb (Goodreads):

Have you ever heard of a Bludman? They’re rather like you and me—only more fabulous, immortal, and mostly indestructible. (They’re also very good kissers.)

Delilah S. Dawson’s darkly tempting debut drops her unsuspecting heroine into a strange faraway land for a romantic adventure that’s part paranormal, part steampunk . . . and completely irresistible.

When Tish Everett forces open the ruby locket she finds at an estate sale, she has no idea that a deliciously rakish Bludman has cast a spell just for her. She wakes up in a surreal world, where Criminy Stain, the dashing proprietor of a magical traveling circus, curiously awaits. At Criminy’s electric touch, Tish glimpses a tantalizing future, but she also foresees her ultimate doom. Before she can decide whether to risk her fate with the charming daredevil, the locket disappears, and with it, h…

Review: Fire Baptized by Kenya Wright

Published: January 28, 2012
Format: eBook (Review)
Series: Habitat #1
Available: Barnes & Noble & Amazon (Paperback)

Book Blurb: (Goodreads):

Since the 1970s humans have forced supernaturals to live in caged cities. Silver brands embedded in their foreheads identify them by species: a full moon for Vampires, a crescent moon for Shifters, a pair of wings for Fairies, and the list goes on, for each supernatural species has been tagged and categorized by humans.

Lanore Vesta is marked with a silver X, the brand of Mixbreeds, second-class citizens shunned by society. She stays to herself, revealing her ability to create fire only during emergencies. All she wants to do is graduate college and stop having to steal to survive. But when she stumbles upon a murder in progress, she catches the attention of a supernatural killer. Now all she wants is to stop finding dead bodies in her apartment.

Enlisting help from her Were-cheetah ex-boyfriend MeShack and a new mysterious friend named Zulu, s…

Tour/Giveaway: Dark Side Of Purgatory ~ Linda Hadaway

Today L.J. Hadaway is taking over to talk about her book Dark Side of Purgatory.
Linda Hadaway
Dark Side Of Purgatory
Thank you so much for the invitation to your blog site.
When someone asks me to tell them about Dark Side Of Purgatory, I say it’s a novel about addiction, recovery, and hope, with a paranormal twist.
I’ve worked in the chemical addiction field for many years. After having published two other books, I decided I wanted to write a novel about addiction. Something that any reader could pick up and find entertaining-as novels go- and yet, gain some insight into how the addictive person thinks. What makes a person keep drinking- or using- after they have lost their job, their family, their home? How does someone get so lost in the insanity of addiction- they can’t find their way out? If you’ve ever known- or loved- someone who has been an alcoholic or addict, you’ll probably relate to Jaxon’s family.  You might even relate to Jaxon.

Jaxon Sla…

Review: The Familial Witch by Bri Clark

Published: 2/2011 Format: eBook (Review) Available: Barnes & Noble, Amazon
Book Blurb

Lucien Lemione the clan leader of the feared and revered Eternals is faced with the ultimate betrayal. His second in command for two centuries has not only created the most grievous of offenses but also commissioned the creation of liquid silver. When poisoned by this toxin, an immortal suffers a fate much worse than death, frozen in an internal prison. After being wounded when found spying, he hides deep within the eerie woods that encircle the Triad Mountains. Desperate and in pain, he prays to an offended mother goddess for help. Her answer: a woman, but not just any woman. A witch.

After losing her entire coven at the hands of the Eternals, Aisleen is the last of her kind. She retreats from the world to Trinity Forest where she is giving the opportunity of a lifetime, or perhaps a test of principles. It’s there she discovers the man she heals is the Eternal that wiped out her people. Although she …

Tour: Author Interview: Catherine Bybee ~ Highland Shifter

I got a chance to talk to A wickedly sexy highlander...Meet Simon from Catherine Bybee's Highland Shifter. 

Hi Simon and Welcome. Thank you for having me. Please tell us about yourself? I'm what you might call adaptable. You see, when I a teenager my Aunt disappeared. Simply vanished without a trace. A year later my mother was told that in order to see my Aunt again we would have to travel in time. I know what you're thinking... "time travel isn't possible" but it is. Believe that or not, it makes no difference to me. I did travel back to the sixteenth century and we were reunited with my Aunt. I adapted. My mother fell in love and married.  We decided to live our lives in the past. Our family is huge and growing every year. The other men and I at MacCoinnich Keep fight to protect all our people. Family means everything to me. Please tell us about your relationship with Helen We've not had an easy time of it, yet I would change nothing. Helen has brought light t…

Tour: Author Interview: Georgia Cates ~ Going Under

Today, Author Georgia Cates is stopping through as part of her Tour to talk about her book Going Under.

Hi Georgia, Tell us a little bit about yourself and your writing? Firstly, I would like to thank Salacious Reads for having me as a guest today. You have an awesome blog going on here. "shucks...thanks!"
My name is Georgia Cates and I am the author of Going Under and Blood of Anteros, Book 1 of The Vampire Ag├ípe Series. I am a mother of two and wife of one. I lived in rural Mississippi and I love it. My life is simple and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
What type of books do you enjoy? Basically anything romance, but I prefer things along the paranormal and young adult line. I thought I didn’t care for sci-fi, but I recently read Obsidian and was surprised at how much I loved it. I guess you can teach an “old” dog new tricks.
Who's your favorite author? (Other than yourself of course. *Grin*) Man, that’s like asking which one of my kids I like better. I’m a huge Indie autho…

Trinity Bound Blog Tour: Author Interview/Giveaway ~ Carrie Ann Ryan

Today, I have Carrie Ann Ryan here. She's stopping though as part of her Trinity Bound Tour to answer a few questions for us...take a gander.
Hi Carrie Ann and welcome to SalaciousReads
Hi! Thank you so much for having me!
So tell us about yourself and did you always want to be a writer?
I’m a chemist by day and a paranormal romance writer, wife, and kitten momma by night. I didn’t know I wanted to be a writer until recently, but I’m so happy I started to read romance!!
Please tell us about the Redwood Pack series and your latest book Trinity Bound
The Redwood Pack series is a seven book series – plus some novellas – that center on a Pack of werewolves and the Jamenson family. Each book is about a different sibling and how they find and keep their mates. And of course, there are demons and a rival Pack to get in the way. They are sexy, a bit dark, kind of funny, and werewolf-tastic (not my word, but a friend’s LOL)
Trinity Bound is about the middle son, Reed. He doesn’t have a position i…
