{Blog Tour} Pan's Conquest by Aubrie Dionne

Pan's Conquest
Pan's Conquest by Aubrie Dionne
Publication Date: February 24th 2014
Genre: Contemporary, Paranormal Romance
Syrinx pulled a fast one on Pan to escape his raging lust. The God of Chastity wasn't about to break her vows and succumb to his temptations. Transported to the twenty-first century, she runs a florist shop—fulfilling her fake, mortal life. Until the breathtaking Parker Thomas hires her to decorate his grand estate for a gala. Five hundred roses? Easy enough. Except Parker makes her feel things she can't ignore...

As the God of Fertility, Pan is used to maidens flocking in droves to his pastures. So when Syrinx denies him, he's determined to win the one that got away. He poses as a mortal to get close to her, but he doesn't count on falling hard for his conquest—hard enough to make a life and stay.

But Syrinx is falling in love with a man that doesn't exist. Can Pan hide his identity forever, or will the truth tear them apart?
~The Story Behind Pan's Conquest~

The inspiration behind Pan’s Conquest came from a piece for solo flute written by Claude Debussy titled Syrinx. Some people say the piece is written from Syrinx’s perspective as a woman running from a pursuer, and others think it is Pan’s lament when he finds out Syrinx is gone. I go back and forth whenever I play it, seeing both sides of the story.
But, the ending never did sit well with me. Fleeing from Pan’s lust, Syrinx asks the river nymphs to turn her into a reed in the water. They do, and once Pan reaches the river, he cuts the reed and makes his flute.
So, does Syrinx die? What really happens to her? Does Pan know he’s cutting the reed she has become to make his flute? Does that make him a murderer or an admirer? The whole story is kind of weird and unresolved. I felt bad for both of them.
So, I decided to make my own end. What if Syrinx tricks him into thinking she’s gone? What if she transports to the 21st century and lives as a mortal? What if he follows her? And what if, given a second chance around, they fall in love?
That’s how Pan’s Conquest was born. I wanted Pan to start out as thinking of Syrinx as a prize to be won. Then, with human influence, he realizes how much more she is than a trophy or a conquest. His time spent in the mortal world humanizes him, and his wants and needs change.
As for Syrinx, I wanted her to come down from her lofty pedestal as the goddess of chastity. I felt as though she needed to loosen up and have a little fun- give a guy a chance, you know? So, her character arc is all about defining herself not through her godly vow of chastity, but through who she really is: a lover of nature and poetry, a florist, a friend. By finding a new sense of identity, she frees herself from the idea that her self-worth is tied to her virginity. Because life is much more than that, right?

Tasha's Review: The Enchanter Heir

The Enchanter Heir (The Heir Chronicles #4) by Cinda Williams Chima
Publication Date: October 1, 2013
Genre: YA Fantasy
Pages: 455
Source: Bought


They called it the Thorn Hill Massacre—the brutal attack on a once-thriving Weir community. Though Jonah Kinlock lived through it, he did not emerge unscathed: like the other survivors, Jonah possesses unique magical gifts that set him apart from members of the mainline guilds. At seventeen, Jonah has become the deadliest assassin in Nightshade, a global network that hunts the undead. He is being groomed to succeed Gabriel Mandrake, the sorcerer, philanthropist, and ruthless music promoter who established the Thorn Hill Foundation, the public face of Nightshade. More and more, Jonah’s at odds with Gabriel’s tactics and choice of targets. Desperate to help his dying brother Kenzie, Jonah opens doors that Gabriel prefers to keep closed.

Emma Claire Greenwood grew up worlds away, raised by a grandfather who taught her music rather than magic. An unschooled wild child, she runs the streets until the night she finds her grandfather dying, gripping a note warning Emma that she might be in danger. The clue he leaves behind leads Emma into Jonah’s life—and a shared legacy of secrets and lingering questions.

Was Thorn Hill really a peaceful commune? Or was it, as the Wizard Guild claims, a hotbed of underguild terrorists? The Wizards’ suspicions grow when members of the mainline guilds start turning up dead. They blame Madison Moss and the Interguild Council, threatening the fragile peace brokered at Trinity.

Racing against time, Jonah and Emma work to uncover the truth about Thorn Hill, amid growing suspicion that whoever planned the Thorn Hill Massacre might strike again.

I'm a huge fan of the first Heir Chronicles trilogy. So, of course,  I was excited and skeptical about a new book in the series. But, happily, my worries were unwarranted.

The book takes place months after The Dragon Heir. It starts a new story with new characters, but does trickle in some smaller plot points and characters from the previous books. And I think it does a good job expanding the series's world and mythology. I think that was the most successful part of the book. The plot was fine and I will get to the characters in a minute, but being back in the world was great.

And like I said, the plot was fine. It was in line with the series. But a little bit more gritter. The only thing I wasn't happy with was the ending. It was a cliffhanger. And though I prefer if books didn't end in cliffhanger, I don't usually mind if they do. But this one felt sudden and forced. It felt like there was another chapter or two. It felt like a cliffhanger for the sake of having a cliffhanger.

Now the characters. I liked Jonah. He was what you would expect. Maybe a little bit darker. And I expect he will get more developed in the next book. I wasn't a big fan of Emma on the other hand. She felt  so uneven. She felt like a different character at the end than she was at the begin. And I don't mean that she developed or grew. I mean halfway through the book it felt like the author decided to make her a completely different character. I hope she finds her way in the next one. And the supporting characters were all so different and I want to see more of them.

Overall, I really enjoyed the book. It's a great continuation of the series. It crafts a new story, but still respects the original one. I recommend reading the first three books, well period, but also before reading this one. But in the end, I loved the book and look forward to the next one.

Saturday Songs (45) Rewind

"Wish I could reach up and reset that sun
Reverse these wheels go back and re-pick you up
Went by so fast oh so sweet
Make me wanna remake a memory
Wish I had me a time machine

Oh I float the moon back up in the sky
Put a cork back into that sweet red wine
Put your midnight hair back up so you can let it fall one more time
Untouch your skin
Unkiss your lips and kiss 'em again
So good so right this is one night I'm wishing I could rewind

I turn back that radio dial reopen your door,
Try to talk George Strait into giving us an encore
Re-spin you around replay that sound of you laughing when we hit the ground,
I can see it now how bout we

Float the moon back up in the sky, put a cork back into that sweet red wine
Put your midnight hair back up so you can let it fall one more time
Untouch your skin.. unkiss your lips and kiss em again
So good so right this is one night I'm wishing I could rewind"
We all have that one moment we would love to go back to....I know I have many with my Marine <3

He exhaled, breath caressing her skin. “How do you do it?” he asked.
She swallowed, a razor blade in her throat while his eyes searched hers. “Do what?”
His face became distorted and her vision blurred until she wondered if this all wasn’t just a dream.
“Get under my skin,” he whispered.

Tell us something about yourself…
Writing for me is cathartic. I’m not sure that I can live or function long without it. I get cranky when I’m writing a story and don’t have time to sit down and finish a scene. Otherwise, I’m just your average person. I’m a wife and mom to two young children, coffee and chocolate addict. I love wine and visiting new places. Fall is my favorite time of year, and the best thing in the world—other than my family—is finding that book that you just can’t put down. Better yet, reading it on the beach!
Tell us about your book…
Written On Her Heart is a new adult romance and the first in The Callaway Cove series. The books take place around three women—best friends. There will be three books and each will be from another one of the girls’ perspectives.  Written On Her Heart focuses on Andi Callaway. She’s an aspiring writer who discovers her literary idol, Ford Delaney, has fled to her small hometown for the summer. And she’s given the chance to work for him. But it might come as a price. She’s soon risking her friendships, her boyfriend, and her education just for the chance. But what she doesn’t expect is to have a shot at love with the reclusive Ford Delaney.
Is it hard for you to come up with ideas for your novels?
No! I actually have dozens of ideas all lurking around in my head. Now I just time to write them!
If you had a party, what character from your book would you hope attends?  Why?  What character do you hope doesn’t attend?  Why?
Ooooh. The sexy and illustrious Ford Delaney, for sure. He’s Andi’s (the main characters’) love interest in the book. He’s a famous author with a past that’s caught up to him. I definitely wouldn’t want Peter, Andi’s boyfriend at the start of the book, to attend. He’s too self-serving and a bore.
What was the last book you read?
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick – I have yet to review it, but it was a great read.
What’s your next big writing challenge?
I really want to get the second novel in the Callaway Cove series out by mid-July.

Ashley's Review: The Rules (Project Paper Doll #1) by Stacey Kade

The Rules (Project Paper Doll, #1)
The Rules (Project Paper Doll #1) by Stacey Kade
Publication Date: April 23rd 2013
Genre: Young Adult Science Fiction Romance
Pages: 416
Format: Hardcover
Source: Publisher
1. Never trust anyone.
2. Remember they are always searching.
3. Don’t get involved.
4. Keep your head down.
5. Don’t fall in love.

Five simple rules. Ariane Tucker has followed them since the night she escaped from the genetics lab where she was created, the result of combining human and extraterrestrial DNA. Ariane’s survival—and that of her adoptive father—depends on her ability to blend in among the full-blooded humans in a small Wisconsin town, to hide in plain sight at her high school from those who seek to recover their lost (and expensive) “project.”

But when a cruel prank at school goes awry, it puts her in the path of Zane Bradshaw, the police chief’s son and someone who sees too much. Someone who really sees her. After years of trying to be invisible, Ariane finds the attention frightening—and utterly intoxicating. Suddenly, nothing is simple anymore, especially not the rules…
~My Thoughts~
Honestly I don’t know why it took me so god damn long to read this!! What motivated me to finally, finally pick up this awesome book was because the sequel, The Hunt, is being published today and I can’t wait to pick it up!!
From the blurb I felt this was going to be one exciting read. While deep, deep down I was afraid it might end up being cliché. I know, silly me! Mrs. Kade has proven that she’s one that knows how to stand out in a crowd and once again she has knocked my socks off! All I did was eat, sleep, and breathed this book! I couldn’t stop thinking about it!
When I was in school (and I love the nail tech program I’m in!) all I wanted to do was go home and read what happened next. I wanted to read this throughout the night and if I walked away I was dying to get back to it! To say the least, I was possessed by The Rules!
The Rules, what can I say, it was absolutely captivating! Since the very first page and I fell into this world without any fight. I’m very grateful for that as I’ve been in a reading slump for quite some time.
Though this book can be very emotional, it was still able to help me relax. When time slipped away I didn’t care, I felt like I was home in this book and I didn’t want to leave, so thank you Mrs. Kade for writing an amazing story! I was able to connect to Ariane without effort (Especially became more connected when she got her first kiss, reminded me of mine with my man). Whatever she felt, I felt. Like I said, it’s quite the emotional roller coaster and I just couldn’t believe it. Took me by surprised, especially when we got to see another side of the mean girl (and trust me it isn’t good, its way more worst then I ever thought possible).
There’s so much that happens I can’t really find the words to talk about it without feeling like I’ll spoil the book for you. Honestly you may think you know how this will turn out before you read it but once you start, you’ll be quite surprised! Well, at least I was.
Overall, The Rules was an unexpectingly refreshing read that made me enjoy reading again! The romance didn’t feel cheesy, it felt so very real! It had me melting, weak at the knees, and being able to see behind both Ariane and Zane’s eyes made it even more gripping! So if you love science fiction or romance or just Mrs. Kade I suggest picking up this book now because the sequel just came out! I’m craving for it! Already requested it from my towns library system, now just have to wait till they receive the copies, ugh! haha
It will take possession over you

Tasha's Review: Born at Midnight

Born at Midnight (Shadow Falls #1) by C.C. Hunter
Publication Date: March 29, 2011
Genre: YA Paranormal
Pages: 398
Source: Bought


One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever. Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls—a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren’t just “troubled.” Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, witches and fairies train side by side—learning to harness their powers, control their magic and live in the normal world.

Kylie’s never felt normal, but surely she doesn’t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either. Or does she? They insist Kylie is one of them, and that she was brought here for a reason. As if life wasn’t complicated enough, enter Derek and Lucas. Derek’s a half-fae who’s determined to be her boyfriend, and Lucas is a smokin’ hot werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past. Both Derek and Lucas couldn’t be more different, but they both have a powerful hold on her heart.

Even though Kylie feels deeply uncertain about everything, one thing is becoming painfully clear—Shadow Falls is exactly where she belongs…

You know, I felt a whole lot better about this book right after I read it. I was ready to give it a four and tell people to read it. But now that I'm a little more than a month removed from it, I'm singing a different tune.

The more I think about the characters, the less I like them. They feel very clichéd. The love interests, Derek and Lucas, were what you expected. Lucas, the bad boy with a heart, and Derek, the good guy  that would do anything to protect the girl. They weren't anything special. Then there was Kylie, the protagonist. I liked her so much more a month ago. Now, I'm not even sure I like her. She was just really judgmental and self-centered. She was hard to sympathize with. I really don't know why I liked her in the first place. The only characters I can truly say I liked are her roommates, Miranda and Della, and the camp leader, Holiday. They helped make the book feel a bit more grounded.

And the plot was full of clichés, but I can look past most of them. I could pretty much guess most of the plot points. It did do one or two things that I didn't call, but those were just a few exceptions. Though I didn't feel the plot and story was anything unique, I do think the world the book is set in could be something really interesting and it does make me curious about the next book.

Overall, I thought the book was just okay. I think it had a lot more potential that it didn't live up to. I have hopes for the second book and I will read the sequel. (In the interest of full disclosure, I already have the second one because I bought one of those 2 books in 1 deals.) I don't know if I would recommend the reading it, but I do say give it shot. Check back with me on that after I read the next one.

{Book Blitz} Arms of Anu (Arrow of the Mist #2) by Christina Mercer

Arms of Anu (Arrow of the Mist, #2)
Arms of Anu (Arrow of the Mist #2) by Christina Mercer
Publication Date: March 13th 2013
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
 Follows Award-Winning Preteen/Teen Fantasy ARROW OF THE MIST

Blood of body, blood of soul,
Entwined for life, then unfolds;
If blood still runs when magic binds,
Soul is never too far to find.

In ARMS OF ANU, Lia and Kelven battle through a land of tyrants, war and magic.
Can Lia escape the foes who ensnare her?
Will Kelven’s love withstand the darkness taking root inside Lia?
Is freedom too high a crown to reach, or will they forever remain in the hollows?
Lia Griene folded birch-white arms against her chest. Wynn stood beside her with his wrists and ankles shackled in chains. Lia winced at the fresh blood seeping from her cousin’s wounds. She might have just enough knitbone sewn in the hem of her cloak to set a poultice on them after they returned to the cart.
If we return.
Royal Sage Conall eyed them, his mouth dripping with jellied pork and wine. “I see your tempers have calmed since leaving Rockberg this morning. Amazing how rebels quiet under lock and key.”
Lia tried to calm the loathing that brewed like bitter nightshade within her. She’d rather fight bog goblins for a thousand years than spend another minute before Nemetona’s nobility. But she held her composure. They still had a fortnight of travel to the royal city of Anu and she’d prefer to face the king with her tongue attached. She met the sage’s glare with silence.
He responded with a snort and continued to stuff his face with greasy meat. His brother, Royal Sage Lorne, cleared his throat and spat in a wrinkled cloth he kept gripped in his hand. He resembled Conall in crimson attire alone. Where Sage Conall was fat like the swine he feasted upon, Sage Lorne was akin to rotting leather over bone. He peered at Lia and Wynn from black hollows set too deep for the candlelight to reach.

Ashley's Review: Fated (The Soul Seekers #1) by Alyson Noel

Fated (The Soul Seekers, #1)
Fated (The Soul Seekers #1) by Alyson Noel
Publication Date: November 13th 2012
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy Romance
Pages: 352
Format: Paperback
Source: Bought
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Immortals, Alyson Noël, comes Fateda breathtaking new saga brimming with magic, mystery, and an intoxicating love story that will steal your heart away. Meet The Soul Seekers.

Strange things are happening to Daire Santos. Crows mock her, glowing people stalk her, time stops without warning, and a beautiful boy with unearthly blue eyes haunts all her dreams. Fearing for her daughter’s sanity, Daire’s mother sends her to live with the grandmother she’s never met. A woman who recognizes the visions for what they truly are—the call to her destiny as a Soul Seeker—one who can navigate the worlds between the living and dead.

There on the dusty plains of Enchantment, New Mexico, Daire sets out to harness her mystical powers. But it’s when she meets Dace, the boy from her dreams, that her whole world is shaken to its core. Now Daire is forced to discover if Dace is the one guy she's meant to be with...or if he’s allied with the enemy she's destined to destroy.
~My Thoughts~

Fated felt very refreshing with its colorful world of fantasy tumbling into reality. Daire’s mother is a make-up artist in Hollywood who travels from movie set to set all over the world, she’s someone who can’t stay put in one place for too long. Daire doesn’t mind, she’s used to it as that’s all her life’s been about. But at the latest place she’s at, while on a date with the teen heartthrob of the movie, her reality turns into a nightmare.
Mrs. Noel shows us smoothly in the beginning that something isn’t normal with Daire, she can stop time without her doing. But that’s not it, there’s crows and talking heads on sticks that plague her waking mind when the drumming in the square takes over her senses. It’s feels real and this causes her to go crazy, to the point where her mother decides she has to send her daughter to an estrange grandmother.
At this point it started to feel a bit cliché but I continued since the beginning was absolutely consuming! Breathtaking and I felt as if I was there, as if the crows were coming at me. I was still hooked but that refreshing feeling for this young adult fantasy started to dwindle and to the point where I walked away a bit (my attention span has changed with me having full time schooling).
However, I wanted to finish. I’m tired of starting books and then walking away. So I picked it back up since I did love the beginning and it was able to hook me again. I absolutely love how parts of her dreams were coming true. I also loved the fantasy world Mrs. Noel has created. But just like Daire, you’re just as damn confused as she is about the heritage she comes from. Yes, she’s a seeker (a shaman) but what she can actually do we don’t know, or at least it doesn’t seem real clear. You get bits and pieces but the full picture is one that’s going to take time.
Overall I did enjoy this. Got goose bumps here and there and I absolutely loved the creature Daire met at the end! Seriously awesome! Fated is vividly written and it’ll sink its claws into you with a romance that’ll make you swoon, a sense of humor, animal guides, and bloodily nightmares that’ll bring chills to your spine!

Will disturb your being

{Cover Reveal} Intercepting Love (Second Chances #5) by L.P. Dover

Intercepting Love (Second Chances #5) by L.P. Dover
Publication Date: May 25th 2014 
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Both have what she wants … but only one has what she needs.

Working with professional athletes and helping them recover from their injuries has always been Kate Townsend’s dream, but after an accident left her scarred and heartbroken years ago she refuses to let what happened in her past happen again. Staying focused is the key, as well as not letting her feelings interfere with her job … no matter the circumstances. All of that is easier said than done when not only one, but two men crave her healing touch, igniting every single desire she’s denied herself for so long.

Cooper Davis, NFL’s star quarterback and most eligible bachelor, packs up and leaves his home to move across the states to the East Coast after an injury results in the embarrassing trade to another team. Bitter from the pain, he deals with his problems through drugs and alcohol—almost ruining his football career—until he meets the one woman who makes him want to feel; the same woman who refuses to give up on him no matter how many times he screws up. He has to have her, and he’s not going to stop until he makes her his. Especially, now that someone else threatens to take her away.

Motocross champion and local bad boy Luke Collins never takes no for an answer. For the past four months he’s used his charms to get what he wants, and now he’s so close to getting the girl of his dreams … if she’ll give in just once. One time is all he needs, and he’s never been known to fail, but he’s also never had to fight for a woman’s affections. Only one man will win their way into Kate’s heart, but which one will intercept the other and take what they want? Which one will she choose?

I am an avid reader that loves my collection of books. Writing has always been a passion of mine and now I am glad that I get to share my passion with the world. I live in North Carolina and I absolutely love being a southern girl. I spent several years in college starting out with a major in Psychology and then switching to dental. I worked in the dental field for eight years and then decided to stay home with my two beautiful girls. I spent the beginning of my reading years reading suspense thrillers, but now I can't get away from the paranormal/fantasy books. I knew ever since then that if I wrote anything it would be in a paranormal aspect. Now that I have started on my passion and began writing, you will not see me go anywhere without a notebook and pen.

Nely Cab has lived and resided in a small, quiet South Texas town most of her life. She worked in banking for several years, before she relocated to Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico in 2001, where she dedicated time to the study of culinary arts and the art of oil painting. After her return to the U.S., Nely resumed her employment in banking and later transitioned to the field of Social Work.

Today, Nely Cab writes from the comfort of her home, where she lives with her husband and son. Her life goal is to check-off Bucket List Item No. 95,623,351: To Conquer the World. While she aspires world domination, Nely can be found lost in other fantasy worlds in front of her computer, sipping coffee.

These covers are pretty! Absolutely love the rose petals! And that trailer, I'm very curious now about the series!
