Release Day: VEILED SECRETS by Jodi Vaughn

Posted May 15, 2017 By Jennifer
Today we’re excited to bring you a re-release from a southern paranormal romance author, Jodi Vaughn.


[Today] is the release date for VEILED SECRETS! I can’t tell you how excited I am to re-release this book! It’s been a fan favorite and now it’s connected to the world of the RISE OF THE ARKANSAS WEREWOLVES.

Veiled Secrets

Secrets never stay hidden…especially the magic ones…

Celeste Hart has always known she was different. Growing up in the South, she knows that having prophetic visions makes her a freak, cursed, or worse… evil.

But one night of passion leads to something she never expected… a child on the way, and now, discovering who she is has never been more important. Discovery of her Fae heritage plunges her into a paranormal world she has to accept.

Eric Nordstrom runs his life like he runs his multibillion dollar business… with precision and focus. He never lets his emotions get in the way of what he wants. But Celeste Hart intrigues him with her gentle character even though he can’t help but suspect her motives.  After blackmailing her into marriage to protect his reputation, his family falls under demonic attacks. And he has to face his own past to protect his new family.

The threat of a supernatural war…

Bound together by more than passion, Celeste and Eric soon realize they will have to work together to defeat the evil headed straight for them. Shadowed by danger they enter a world they didn’t know existed.

When the Fae and demons collide, all hell will break loose.

And only one side will be left standing.

My head tilted back, and I leaned on his chest. His thumb continued, now sliding up and down my forefinger. Tiny swipes back and forth, each one like a flame licking my hot skin. My fingers tingled with the need to touch him back, but I couldn’t move. All the noise from the other rooms seemed to fade away as he held me there. And even though I didn’t know who he was, I felt at home in his arms. Like it was where I belonged.

“Close your eyes, Hadley.” My eyes slid shut upon his command. “No peeking.”

I nodded, keeping my eyes tightly shut as he spun me around, facing him. My lips parted slightly as he reached up and cupped my face in his hands. I held my breath, anticipating whatever he was going to do next. My pulse raced as the seconds ticked by. God I hope he kisses me, I prayed.

“I want you to do something for me, Hadley.”

“Okay,” I murmured.

“When everything is over tonight. When the last guest has gone home and the lights are all out. When you’re back in your dorm and the world is quiet, I want you to glance out your window and look out at the stars. At how brightly they shine down from millions of miles away. And then I want you to remember what I’m telling you right now.”

He moved his face against mine, his breath like a warm caress against my cheek. “You, Hadley, shine brighter than them all. You radiate beauty and warmth and passion and determination. You put them to shame, Hadley.”

I sucked in a breath as tears pooled at his beautiful words. And just then, when I was filled to the brim with so much emotion I could explode, his lips came down on mine.

I sighed in contentment as his warm and soft lips pressed against my own with the briefest of kisses, leaving me craving more.

But before I could even flutter my eyes open, he was gone.




The Secret Crush - RDL Teaser 1



I’ve been in love with Hadley Monroe for three years. Over a thousand days.

But Hadley doesn’t see me. Not the real me, anyway.

It’s time to change all that.

I need to show her—convince her—that we could be more than friends. That we are actually perfect for each other.

It’s time to put it all out there. Risk everything before it’s too late.

It’s time for a grand gesture.

It’s time to reveal that I’m her Secret Crush.

APHRODITE’S CHARMS by Julie Kenner releases today and we couldn’t be more thrilled for everyone to get their hands on The Protector Series!





From New York Times, USA Today and international bestselling author Julie Kenner (aka J. Kenner) — Aphrodite’s Charms contains all four full-length novels in the bestselling Protector (Superhero) series of paranormal romances.

This bundle contains the full text of Aphrodite’s Kiss, Aphrodite’s Passion, Aphrodite’s Secret, Aphrodite’s Flame (each book is available for purchase individually as well as in this bundle)

Aphrodite’s Kiss:

Zoe Smith might look like your average, ordinary elementary school librarian, but she’s about as far from normal as a girl can get. Because Zoe is descended from a line of superheroes … and as her twenty-fifth birthday approaches, she has to decide if she’s going to embrace her heritage (including the X-ray vision and her extraordinary senses) or submit herself for mortalization and be that average, ordinary girl.

Considering how lousy she’s done so far on all the Council-imposed tests, chucking the whole superhero thing might be very best thing … especially when she realizes that sexy, private investigator George Bailey Taylor is convinced that Zoe is one-hundred percent “the girl next-door”.

An ex-cop turned PI, George Bailey Taylor’s had one hell of a life being bounced around from foster home to foster home. All he wants now is a normal life with a normal wife in a normal neighborhood. And when he meets Zoe Smith, he’s certain she’s the typical American girl.

Except she does have an overprotective brother who seems able to appear and disappear at will. And a creepy cousin who’s always lurking about. And why does everyone in her family pretend to actually talk to the pet ferret? With her super powers, Zoe can do just about anything … except make Taylor fall in love with her.

For that, they’re both going to need a different kind of magic …

Aphrodite’s Passion:

Mortal Tracy Tannin has always felt like the most ordinary girl in the world, especially since she’s lived her whole life in the shadow of her Hollywood superstar grandmother. But when she finds an antique belt in her grandmother’s attic, everything changes. Suddenly everyone wants Tracy—or maybe they just want the belt.

Superhero Hale is more than happy to do his job protecting mortals. But get emotionally close to one? Absolutely no way. Which is why he’s thrown a bit off his game when he suddenly finds himself craving the mortal woman he’s been assigned to protect. But that must just be the effect of the magical belt he’s supposed to retrieve, right?

Because there’s no way that a guy like Hale can fall for a girl like Tracy.
Or is there?

Aphrodite’s Secret:

Shapeshifter Jason Murphy spent six years captive to the most notorious Outcast in the Protector world—Hieronymous Black, who also happens to be Jason’s father. Worse than his is the distrust that his absence put between him and the love of his life, Lane.

Lane knows only that the father of her child disappeared just moments after she told him she was pregnant, and she’s spent the last few years struggling as a single mom. Now Jason’s determined to win back his family.

But to do that, he’s going to have to face his father one last time. And he’s going to have to tell Lane the truth—and hope that this time she’ll see him as a hero.

Aphrodite’s Flame:

Mordichai grew up under the shadow of the baddest bad guy out there—Hieronymous Black—and he’s used his power to conjure fire to help Daddy Dearest in numerous nefarious plots. But he’s reformed now—and just in time to meet the woman of his dreams.

Isole Frost believes Mordichai when he says he’s truly reformed. Trouble is, she also believes that Hieronymous truly wants to give up his dark ways and join the good guys.

He may be the man of her dreams, but she’s sure that he’s wrong.And when they’re forced to work together, they’re either going to prove that fire won’t mesh with ice—or that the inevitable result is a whole lotta steam!

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Don’t play games with me, Kat. Do whatever you need to do to reverse it.” He leaned in and gripped her arms.

“What are you talking about?” How could he be so calm after that? So seemingly in control and focused on her reversing something? She could barely wrap her mind around coherent thought. A curse? She recalled her parting words to him all those years ago. He must’ve believed it to be real. She hadn’t intended such.
Beyond that…wow. That meant he hadn’t been satisfied by any woman since her. Her heart squeezed. She owned a piece of this extraordinary man that no other could claim. That didn’t mean she trusted him farther than she could spit. Even if she’d meant to cast a curse, she had no clue how to reverse it. Based on the stubborn set of his lips, he would push this until he got what he wanted.

About Protecting His Witch:

Protecting-His-Witch-cover_500A paranormal category romance from Entangled’s Covet imprint… The last thing he wanted was to fall for a witch… Veterinarian Kat Ramsey hasn’t a clue that she’s a witch. Sure, she can read minds, and there’s the whole “dimension-hopping” issue that she can’t quite control, but Kat is determined to keep things normal. That is, until she accidentally hops into the Otherworld, and runs smack into Matthew Ryan―the seriously hot one-night stand from years ago who shoved her out of his dorm. Naked. And there’s the tiny matter of the curse she gave him. May you never find satisfaction with another woman. Billionaire and former druid Matthew Ryan hasn’t forgotten the curse, or the witch who gave it to him. Kat’s unexpected return means the curse will finally be broken. Unfortunately, his libido has other ideas―like how to get her back into his bed one last time. But far more worrying is his suspicion that Kat is the seventh Pleiades witch. Because while he’s turned his back on his druidic ways, he’s still bound to protect the woman who made his life hell…

Release Day Blast: THE VINES by Christopher Rice

Posted October 21, 2014 By Jennifer

THE-VINES-Final-CoverFrom the mind of bestselling novelist Christopher Rice

comes a dark, supernatural tale full of action, drama, and an ending that will shock you to the core…

The Vines

by Christopher Rice

First published at the tender age of 22, Christopher Rice (son of legendary novelist Anne Rice) has written four New York Times bestsellers, received a Lambda Literary Award, and been declared one of People Magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive. Now the Bram Stoker nominee returns to the familiar gothic playground of his hometown, New Orleans, during Halloween season with a chilling tale of supernatural suspense to rival the best of Stephen King, Joe Hill, or Deborah Harkness in THE VINES (Amazon Publishing/47North, on sale October 21, 2014).

The dark history of Spring House, a beautifully restored plantation mansion on the outskirts of New Orleans, has long been forgotten. But something sinister lurks beneath the soil of the old estate.

After heiress and current owner Caitlin Chaisson is witness to her husband’s stunning betrayal at her birthday party, she tries to take her own life in the mansion’s cherished gazebo. Instead, the blood she spills awakens dark forces in the ground below. Chaos ensues and by morning her husband has vanished without a trace and his mistress has gone mad.

Nova, daughter to Spring House’s groundskeeper, has always suspected that something malevolent haunts the old place, and in the aftermath of the birthday party she enlists Caitlin’s estranged best friend, Blake, to help her get to the bottom of it. The pair soon realizes that the vengeance enacted by this sinister and otherworldly force comes at a terrible price.


From the author of highly acclaimed bestsellers A Density of Souls, Blind Fall, Light Before Day, and The Heavens Rise, comes a harrowing story that will last with readers forever…

ChristopherRiceThailandABOUT THE AUTHOR

By the age of 30, Christopher Rice had published four New York Times bestselling thrillers, received a Lambda Literary Award and been declared one of People Magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive. His first work of supernatural suspense, The Heavens Rise, was a finalist for the Bram Stoker Award. His debut, A Density of Souls, was published when the author was just 22 years old. A controversial and overnight bestseller, it was greeted with a landslide of media attention, much of it devoted to the fact that Christopher is the son of legendary vampire chronicler, Anne Rice.

Together with his best friend, bestselling novelist Eric Shaw Quinn, Christopher recently launched his own Internet radio show. An outrageous and irreverent comedy variety program, “The Dinner Party Show with Christopher Rice & Eric Shaw Quinn” streams 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at

Praise for The Heavens Rise by Christopher Rice
“A masterful coming-of-age novel…Rice’s characters are complex and real, his dialogue pitch-perfect, and his writing intelligent and strong. He builds suspense beautifully…amid enduring philosophical questions about what it means to be human.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Tense, gripping, gory at times, The Heavens Rise is every bit the novel one would expect from, well, someone like his mom.” —The Huffington Post
“Christopher Rice never disappoints with his vivid people and places and masterful prose. He will hold you captive under his spell as his images and emotions become your own.” —Patricia Cornwell, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Bone Bed
“Creepy, chilling, and almost impossible to put down.” —Booklist
“Rice draws upon his New Orleans roots to create at Louisiana that may seem familiar but is a bit more terrifying, bringing about a perfect blend of spooky and memorable…the depth of character, chilling atmosphere and moral dilemma are all marks of a superb story.” —Shelf Awareness
“…a creepy, intriguing and dangerously addictive supernatural novel.” —The Sun
“An entertaining and chilling story published just in time for Halloween.” —The Book Reporter
“Christopher Rice has written an amazing horror novel with more twists and turns than a mountain road. You’ll think you know your destination…but you’ll be wrong.” —Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dead Ever After
“Christopher Rice is a magician. This brilliant, subtly destabilizing novel inhales wickedness and corruption and exhales delight and enchantment. Rice executes his turns, reversals, and surprises with the pace and timing of a master. —Peter Straub, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Mrs. God
“Christopher Rice does a marvelous job at incorporating the imagery of New Orleans into the tale…it is the strength of the character building and the richness of the imagery that makes The Heavens Rise so chilling…I can’t recommend The Heavens Rise enough!”  —Fresh Fiction
