The Awakening: Liam by Abby NilesThe Awakening #2
Shifter, Liam Doyle knows Hell. At least he believed he did. The night he feels his mate die, he learns how very wrong he was. Nothing he’d struggled with since Ava’s rejection compares to the emptiness that fills his soul by her death. Lost in his grief, he’s taken by surprise and drugged. When he wakes, everything changes. Nothing is what it seems, and someone is dead set on making him pay.
When Ava Michaels is taken captive, she’s thrust into a dark and terrifying world along with the man she was forced to leave behind. While being near Liam again is heartbreaking, the motive behind her kidnapping is gradually revealed. The more she learns, the more she worries Liam isn’t the man she believed him to be. He has enemies willing to do anything to extract their revenge. Can their love survive a crazy man’s vengeance?
The Demon’s Desire by Kendra Leigh CastleHearts of the Fallen #2
He’s as dark and dangerous as the storms he once commanded…and she can’t get him out of her heart.
Dru has spent two thousand years fighting to keep the people of Terra Noctem safe. In all that time, she’s only opened her heart to one man, with disastrous results. But when her city takes in a group of renegade Fallen, she finds herself drawn to the brooding and tormented Meresin, despite the fact that he seems to be the least redeemable of them all. When his instability hits a breaking point, Meresin’s only chance at survival is a perilous journey into a place from which few ever return. What he never expected was that confronting his demons would mean risking not only his future, but Dru’s as well…and that one stubborn vampire might give him back not just hope…but his heart.
Ever since Abby Niles picked up her first Sweet Valley High book in sixth grade and fell in love with Elizabeth and Todd, she’s been hooked on romance. By the time she reached high school, she was devouring meatier romances with pirates, cowboys and knights. She never imagined that those years of reading would one day lead to her becoming a published author.
In her late twenties, after having twins and becoming a stay-at-home mom, she started doodling stories to keep her sanity. Next thing she knew, she was actually submitting to publishing houses. And was immediately rejected. That didn’t stop her though. She found herself some kickass critique partners, honed her craft, and continued submitting.
And eventually sold a short story, then a novella, then a novel, and now a series.
Today, she juggles work, home life, and writing. It’s not always easy, but hey, who said life was easy?
In her downtime, which isn’t often, you can find her playing ‘Just Dance’ with her kids or trying to catch up on her never-ending to-be-read list. She also loves Zumba, and refuses to admit she looks more like Animal doing his Muppet flail than a sensual Latin dancer.
Kendra Leigh Castle was born and raised in the far and frozen reaches of Northern New York, where there was plenty of time to cultivate her love of reading thanks to the six-month-long winters. Sneaking off with selections from her mother’s vast collection of romance novels came naturally and fairly early, and a lifelong love of the Happily Ever After was born. After graduating from SUNY Oswego (where it also snowed a lot) with a teaching degree, Kendra ran off with a handsome young Navy fighter pilot and has somehow accumulated three children, three dogs, and one enormous cat during their many moves.
While stationed in a remote corner of the Nevada desert, Kendra penned her first romance, and a career often spent working in fuzzy slippers and pajamas was born. Her work has garnered both critical praise and award nominations, but the best part has been connecting with readers who share her love of dark romance (not to mention heroes with sharp, pointed teeth). Kendra currently lives in Maryland, and can usually be found curled up with her laptop and yet another cup of coffee working on her next book. She loves to hear from her readers, and can be contacted via email or her Facebook page.
Following a family tragedy, Izobel Jerome has lived the past eighteen months in an emotional wilderness, losing herself in meaningless relationships and barely existing.
But no more, Izzy is tired of running. At twenty-two, she decides life is for living and that’s exactly what she intends to do. She will heal her heart and open it to love. A chance meeting at University…call it fate, will have her sharing a flat with three gorgeous men, all different and all offering her the safety and security Izzy desperately needs and craves.
In Aiden and Max she will find the family she never had. In Declan she will find a kindred spirit.
Declan, a man as equally damaged as Izzy who will become her salvation as they both discover the other half of their damaged hearts.
“Don’t look so scared.” He whispers, whilst tucking some loose strands of my hair behind my ear and very slowly freeing my lip with his thumb. Unfortunately at the exact time he does that I lick my lip and catch his thumb at the same time. I hear a sharp intake of breath and look into his eyes, eyes that are now staring at my mouth. My body suddenly goes on high alert and I feel every hair stand on end. The moment’s rudely interrupted by the waitress arriving with our coffee. I’m both disappointed and relieved so I quickly pick up my coffee and take a sip as a distraction. Shit it’s too hot. I stick my tongue out and chant, “Hot, hot, hot.” Declan bursts out laughing but it doesn’t last long. Becoming all serious he suddenly reaches over, grabs my head with both hands and puts his lips to mine. All the while keeping his eyes open to gage a reaction. I’m stunned, I wasn’t expecting this. His lips are firm yet so soft. His tongue licks my lip where I burnt it. It’s so gentle, soothing even and it makes every inch of my body tingle. He moves away but keeps his hands on my face whilst looking into my eyes. “Does it feel better now Izzy?” His eyes burn tracks across my whole face. I can’t look away, I’m lost in his eyes.

LITERATI LITERATURE LOVERS
We wanted to let you know that there have been some changes and expansion in the Literati brand, and we are so excited to begin a brand new chapter in our journey,along with some fabulous new additions to our blogs. Our first year is almost at an end, and we have been so appreciative and blessed to have met so many wonderful authors, publicists, editors, bloggers, and other individuals working within the publishing industry.
New Names on Our Blog
Many changes have been taking place over the past six months. And now that the dust is finally starting to settle, we thought we should convey the news to the people we deal with on a daily basis: authors, publishers, public relations reps, and bloggers.
Literati Author Services, Inc.
We take care of the details, so authors have time to let their imaginations take flight
At the urging of so many authors who needed blog tours at the last minute, PR, book trailers, etc., Rosette, Michelle, and Karen have formed a corporation, which has been very busy. (The offer was made to all of the Lovers from Literati Literature Lovers, but only the three of us were able to commit at the time).
Literati Book Reviews
Since we started the business side, we never, ever wanted our authors accused of paying for reviews. Therefore, we started a sister blog called Literati Book Reviews. Joining us in this venture are Yesi, Maria, Debbie, Robbie, Caroline, Beth, and Deidre. We have all known these ladies for over a year, and Yesi and Maria were guest reviewers for Literati Literature Lovers.

This was our initial blog which was started over a year ago and is so near and dear to our hearts. We will still continue to utilize this site especially for cross-promotions so that we can ensure our authors receive the maximum exposure. However, Elizabeth, Amanda, and Tiffany are no longer with this blog but will be starting their own blog in the very near future. Be sure and watch our Facebook page, as we’ll be cross promoting their site once it’s up and running.
So, thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions or concerns about the changeovers, please let us know. If it weren’t for YOU, we wouldn’t be here.
Book Description: Smart. Sexy. Magical.
A secret society, modern day knights, an accidental pilgrim from an alternate dimension, and a vampire like no other come together where chance intersects romance for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, proving that true love can find you in the strangest places, even far, far from home.
Minutes ahead of inevitable assassination, Elora Laiken is forcibly transported to an alternate dimension similar, but not identical, to her own. She is stranded. Alone. Far from home. A stranger in a “strangish” land.
Of course a girl could suffer worse problems than having gorgeous suitors. Perhaps more importantly, in the midst of an epidemic of vampire related abductions, can she stay alive long enough to choose between an honor debt, true love, or the breathlessness of single-minded passion?
Appropriate for 17+
This book was NOMINATED BY REVIEWERS CHOICE and READERS CHOICE AWARDS for Best Paranormal Romance and Best Fantasy Romance. Whaaaaat? Just nominated? This author should have won. Won, I’m telling you!
I picked this up on the freebies that I usually post on our LLL site, and my habitual tendencies to download paranormal novels had me clicking away on Amazon. It was FREE, and I stress the word FREE.
Who can say no to that?
And the general population would automatically wonder why in the world would they give out free books? Are these authors nuts? How do they make money if it’s FREE? Sorry, about the caps but, I can hardly contain my excitement.
One reason being, of course, is to entice readers to buy this book. Who can pass up a book which is on sale for nothing, right? Not this little chicky, because basically, I’m cheap. In the “literature” sense of course. As to how they make money on this particular freebie, it’s because the writing is beyond exceptional. I kid you not. Fans of Chole Neill, and Illona Andrews will appreciate this author’s intelligent and engaging style of writing. The world she builds crosses the lines into the Paranormal world, with your Vampires and Elves; and that would be your hot-looking Legolas elf, mind you, minus the intense seriousness. But it also touches on aspects of Science Fiction with multiple dimensions, where worlds are similar but yet so very different. In our heroines dimension there was no such thing as chocolate, but in the dimension she find herself in, she discovers that infamous aphrodisiac that is chocolate.
We start the story off with the glob of a mess that was Eloira Laiken as she was pushed into a different dimension by her mentor, in order to save her from certain death. The way to this dimension proves to be difficult, her body, a mangled and bloody mess. It takes her months to recover from her injuries.
She happens to lands at the center of where The Black Swan organization reside and work in order to eradicate the disease that is Vampire. These modern day knights are confused at finding the woman that appears out of thin air. They are wary, but remain intent on caring for this enigma that is Eloira. Her body heals over the next few months and she regains her strength. She finds that the journey to their dimension has changed her body’s cells.
She is strong, and yes, you find out she is bad ass-strong.
This woman is just a lovely complication to the Black Swan Organization, and Eloira finds that she is just as perplexed at what her future holds, what her purpose in life is, and conflicted as to who will eventually hold her heart. I promise you will be completely embroiled in this world. You may skip breakfast, lunch and dinner. You may ignore your kids. You just may call in sick….just to finish this book. Alas, I’ve been hooked, line and sinker, and have already purchased the second book. And that was only after reading the first chapter.
So buy it, or don’t buy it , I mean. Because buying would convey an exchange of funds, which did not occur, because it was… FREE!
