Bloodgifted by Tima Maria Lacoba

Bloodgifted Book Blitz Banner

Bloodgifted

Being unable to age is only the
 beginning …
Laura Dantonville is shocked to learn her strange genetic mutation, is linked to a dark family secret—a centuries-old curse that turned her Roman ancestor into a vampire. Now that she has come of age, she is the key to breaking that curse. But she’s also the prey of rogue vampires who inhabit the city’s frightening and violent underworld, as her blood gives them the ability to daywalk. For her protection she’s assigned a guardian—the handsome, sexy and dangerous Alec Munro.
Former military doctor and current leader of the Brethren, Alec Munro has no intention of being responsible for Laura. After all, it was her damned family who was responsible for his untimely death and subsequent transformation. He owes them nothing, yet he also knows his own fated role in breaking the curse, and the unthinkable consequences should he not accept.
To the Brethren, the ending of the curse spells disaster. Among a powerful few malice grows…


Bloodgifted Author

I'm a fifty-something-young woman who lives on the Central Coast, an hour's drive north of Sydney in Australia. My little house is surrounded by bushland, possums and seed-dropping Rosellas on one side, and waterways on the other. I moved out of the big city a few years ago, and the only thing I miss about it are the quaint shops and cafes. But I've gained fresh air and a home with front and backyards--with a garden swing--and wooded hillside views.

Before becoming a writer, I was a practicing archaeologist, and was fortunate enough to have worked on some amazing digs around the world. After several years in the field I was drawn to teaching and ended up as Head of History in a local high school. While there I took the opportunity to take my students overseas to visit various archaeological sites in Europe and Britain. It was a fabulous way to combine my love of history with travel, and share it with others. On one tour, in Italy, I managed to indulge my other passion - gelato ice cream. We renamed it The Gelato Crawl of Italy!

I've always been a storyteller, but it wasn't until five years ago that I seriously ventured into writing. The result was Bloodgifted. In 2011 it was shortlisted in the Atlas Award and came fourth. In 2012 it was listed among the top ten in the Choclit Search for an Aussie Star Competition. In 2013, I was offered a publishing contract but declined in favour of going indie. I liked the idea of being in charge of my own creation.

Bloodgifted is just the start of a four-part series I've entitled, The Dantonville Legacy. Book 2, Bloodpledge, was released four months ago, and Book 3, Blood Vault, is due for release June 2015. Later I intend writing individual books on the other characters in the series, for they all have their own story.

Lena is alone. After having three boys fight for her heart she has royally screwed it all up and is left broken and lost.

Now there is competition. Lena knows what she wants, and she'll kill Harli to get it.

Wedding bells are ringing and Lena won't go alone. She'll have a date. Her date.

That b*tch is going down.
Excerpt
"Get out of my face." I wanted to spit on her. I knew it would be gross, but I wanted to do that more than anything. Teach her a lesson. 
She didn't move. "Why? Just so you can mess with Blake some more? You know some of us are a little tired of your shit Lena." 
"Back up Harli. I only wanted to talk to Blake. Nothing else." 
She rolled her eyes. "It starts with a conversation. Then it's always more." 
I swirled the spit in my mouth and swallowed it. She was right. I did want more.
I sat on the sand crying, the black fabric swirling around me like my secrets once had. I thought the truth would set me free, instead it swam around me threatening to drown me with every breath.

Red & Wolfe (Part One)

When Sarah "Red" Ryder loses her job as an art critic for a Boston newspaper, she's brokenhearted. Worse than that? She's broke. Her boyfriend recently left her - for a tatted-up hottie with a dick - so she's stuck paying her hefty apartment rent alone. After two months unemployed, there's no money left. With no immediate family to turn to, Red reaches out to her estranged grandmother, a reclusive writer living on an island off the coast of Charleston. Several days later, Red receives $30,000 and an invitation to visit.
James Wolfe is not Red's grandmother. But he beckons her. Red has the ability to give him something he needs. He won't take "no" for an answer, and he doesn't mind screwing her over. He lost his conscience six years ago, when he was tried for the murder of his wife. Since then, life is about him - and the paintings he does under the mysterious pseudonym "W."
Wolfe needs the island to keep painting. To live his life away from prying eyes. To keep up the anonymity of "W."
Once he sees Red, he finds that he needs her, too. And Wolfe will have her. Any way he can.



Excerpt


"Red?" I push her gown down a little further and close my mouth over her breast, working her nipple with my lips. Caressing it with my tongue. I'm rewarded by a soft moan that goes straight to my cock. I need to be inside her, despite knowing I don't have the time.

I pull the covers down and slide my hand up her shin, then up her thigh. She's warm from sleep. Her skin feels like burnished velvet. My fingers brush her pussy and she lifts her hips. She wants it. I love the way she always wants it.

"Race."

I love the way she says my name: a mew.

"I'm going to fuck you with my fingers," I say, leaning near her face. "Then you'll go to sleep again."

A dreamy smile floats over her lips. She nods a little, pressing her head into the pillow.

I slide a finger into her. She's hot and tight, softer than silk. I can feel her clench as I pump into her. She's wet this morning. So fucking slick. I stroke in and out, painting her pussy, using my fingertip to smooth warm lines around her swollen clit.

I'm rewarded by her crying out.

"Say my name."

I still my hand. I can hear my blood rush in my ears. Race. Say Race.

Her hands grab at my wrist. "Race."

I allow myself a brief grin. It's undiluted satisfaction. She knows - or at least suspects - I'm James Wolfe, but she's still in my bed.

"Say 'Race, please.' I like to hear you beg." I push another finger into her. Her body quivers. "I like to feel you jump."

I stretch her with a third finger and slide my thumb over her clit. I'm moving slow. So slow.

"Race, oh God - yes. Please."

"That's right, sweetheart."

Bullettproof_Pearl_High (1)

Morgan Pritchett doesn't need anyone. Strong-willed and confident, she's the master of organizing and looking after everyone around her. In her mind, she's bulletproof. But she has one weakness – men. She can't seem to live without them, yet is unable to find her perfect match. After yet another break up, Morgan promises her sister and best friend that she'll write off men for the rest of the year. But then she meets Sean Tate.
Sean Tate has worked hard to become a Hollywood actor, scoring minor roles and slowly making a name for himself as an action sidekick. After a chance encounter with the stunning Morgan Pritchett, he decides to take a risk and put his dancing skills to the test by signing on for the lead role in Superstar, a TV musical. He never thought he'd reconnect with the girl who urged him to ignore his manager and be honest with himself, but when Morgan shows up on the set as a production assistant, he realizes he's found his ultimate weakness — her. Their passion for dance and music will bring them together, but will their relationship be able to withstand the forces determined to pull them apart? As Morgan comes face to face with her demons and Sean decides just how much he's willing to risk for love, these two lovers discover something... they're not as bulletproof as they thought.

Affliction, A Knights Rebel MC Novel #2 by River Savage




CAUTION: You will need shares in Kleenex and Energizer by the time you're done reading this book.

Before I get to my review I have just a little to say about River.
I am part of her fabulous River Rebels StreetTeam, and during the process of her writing Affliction, I watched how she struggled emotionally with Sy and Holly's story.
I can now finally understand why.

River can write pain better than most I know, not just physical but emotional, mental and she does it in a way that you don't just sympathise with them, but you Feel exactly what they are, every raw, brutal, heartbreaking, soul sucking moment.
This by far is one of the most touching stories I have Ever read.
River, you should be incredibly proud of not just your work, but Yourself.

Ok, Sy and Holly

Affliction runs alongside of Incandescent on the timeline for most of the time, in Sy and Holly's POV. But does skip back to Sy's past every so often, giving us a taste of who this gorgeous man is and all of the pain he has endured.

From the second I met these two in Incandescent, I Knew they were perfect for each other. I loved that crazy, full of life Holly and Sy, the sexy ass bad boy .... Damn I knew there was a lot going on under all that bitterness.

Sy has many layers, this brooding bad boy has been dealt a pretty harsh hand at life, shutting people out and not getting emotionally attached is his way of coping. So when a feisty, full of attitude blonde walks into Ink Me with Kadence, he was not expecting to be so effected.

Holly want to find out just how much ink this biker has, but gets shot down by his silence, that all changes pretty fast when Sy can not fight his attraction to her.

The cat and mouse chasing between these two is funny as hell, Sy and his over the top demands, insane moods and panty-soaking dirty mouth, gets under the skin of the flirty, teasing, #NoShitTaking Holly.

In one tragic moment, that vibrant woman is gone, leaving behind a very broken Holly.
But what Sy does next, is breathtaking. No matter how hard it is, no matter how broken he is or how much he is pushed away, he stands strong to be there for her, in-turn making both himself and Holly stronger.

Watching these two build a friendship, building each other back up is remarkable to say the least, the chemistry is off the charts and when these two unleash all the pent up sexual tension ... Woah! Turn on the fan and forget the panties, these two will steam up more than just the pages.

These two show that no matter how much heartache you've had, how broken you've become, there is always that one person who is there to breathe the life back into you.

I love that we get to see what's happening with Nix and Kadence, as well as all the other guys and a special new meeting of "H" ;)

I can not wait for more from River to meet some more of the Knights Rebels.

I've had my #NixFix my #SyHigh now bring on Jesse. Until then #CockOnRebels

Hansel, part 3 by Ella James




Noooo ....... That can Not be the ending!

Part 3 picks up right after 2 ended, and wow, if you thought part 2 was intense and full of heartbreaking anguish, then be ready to be crushed with this emotional part. I mean I got so emotionally involved that at 50% I messaged Ella to let her know, that while I love her, that I didn't really like her at that moment in time. Don't fret Ella, I still love ya ;)

I am going to get this out there now, Yes, Hansel is a grade A asshole in this instalment, he is one broken man and he has a lot of dark skeletons hiding in his closet, skeletons that he is afraid will break Leah if she ever knew, and thats something he couldn't live with doing to her. So for 95% of this, he pushes her away. He wants her to hate him enough she won't return, that she will forget about him and move on with a life that she deserves, it's the only way He can see to save her from his fucked-up-ness, even though it's clear to see how much he loves and needs her.

Now, don't mistake Leah as some weak little flower who is completely clueless because that is not the case and thank fuck for that. Leah is clued in that Hansel is pushing her away, what she doesn't know is why. She pushes every button she can to try and get him to open up to her, including venturing out there with a little teasing. She is watching the only person she has ever loved struggle, he is so deeply rooted to his past, and she just wants to help him heal, show him he is deserving of the same future he is wanting for her. While she is trying to face her own demons, she still wants to save him, just as Hansel wants to save her.

The sex?

I feel this needs at least a mention because Damn the scene in the hotel was fucking hot! talk about a #PantyMeltingMoment.

That ending? #HolyMotherFuckingShit!

Hansel and Gretel back in The House.... how can this be anything but disastrous?

I Need book 4, like a few hours ago! Yes, it really took me that long to get my thoughts clear after this one.
