Divine One by Danielle R Mani

image

Delilah Simms is an attractive high school senior who is being bullied by a cruel group of girls she calls the Imitators. As if the emotional harassment isn’t enough, she is also trying to heal from the sudden, tragic loss of her younger sister, Darcy—whom her mother believes is sending messages from beyond the grave. On the verge of a breakdown, Delilah meets River Spencer—a handsome young man who she’s instantly attracted to. Although River seems perfect, Delilah can’t ignore the gnawing feeling that River is hiding something and that he may just be the biggest imitator of all.

Debbie White Author Bio
I write easy to read romance novellas that are great for taking to the beach, reading while traveling, or to help relax after a long busy day.

Phobic by Cortney Pearson

image

Crenshaw knows her house is strange. It’s never needed repairs since it was built in the 1800s, and the lights flicker in response to things she says. As if those things aren’t creepy enough, it’s also the place where her mother committed murder.

To prove she’s not afraid of where she lives, Piper opens a forbidden door, which hides a staircase that leads to the ceiling. That’s when the flashbacks of the original residents from 1875 start, including a love affair between two young servants. Each vision pulls Piper deeper into not only their story, but also her house. Piper confides in her best friend, Todd, whom she’s gradually falling for, but even he doesn’t believe her. At least, not until her house gets axed during a prank, and the act injures Piper instead, cutting a gash the size of Texas into her stomach.

Piper realizes her house isn’t haunted—it’s alive. To sever her link to it, she must unravel the clues in the flashbacks and uncover the truth about her mother’s crime, before she becomes part of her house for good.

“I guess a direct approach would probably have worked better,” he says. Then he balls his hands into fists and taps them at his knees. “I have the biggest crush on you. There. I said it.”
“You—you do?” This is absurd. And yet I’m ravenous inside. It’s a challenge to concentrate on anything but him, and I want nothing more than for him to keep talking.

About the Book 
 Pain isn’t new to me.I’ve been to hell only to find it never really leaves when you get back. It haunts me through nightmares, unrequited love, lies, broken hearts, and now death.A monster almost took my life.My best friend carries half my soul a world away.My boyfriend broke my heart but refuses to let me go.

And my father is dead.

I don’t believe in fate and I don’t believe in happily-ever-afters, but for some reason, I still hope.

Live, even with a tainted spirit.

Long for my other half to come back to me.

Risk another broken heart, just to feel loved again.

And refuse to let another horror break me.

In the face of my most recent tragedy, I have to decide whether forgiveness is something I can give. But even if that’s an option, can I be forgiven?

Enjoy this excerpt from That’s a Promise:

My Review 

That’s A Promise Re-Release,
First of all Thank you Victoria Klahr for sending me this book for an honest review. I give this book 5 stars if I could give it more I would
I read the original version of this book and loved it this version is just 10x better

Still one of my favourite books full of emotion

This is a story about a girl, a girl Named Josie Sommers, she Loves to Read and her best friend Seth calls her a Nerd, she went though what one could only describe as hell when she was younger. She has come out a strong women with the help of Seth and Parents.

Josie has kept to herself and Seth until College she meets and falls in love with a boy named Blake unfortunately he ends up breaking her Heart.

All Josie wants is a Happy Ever After, but she is scared of getting her heart broken again.

 

“I guess not everything has a perfect happy ending.” I shrugged. “I mean Harry had his best friends still, and the girl he loved, but not without a lot of trouble getting in the way. Life’s not perfect, and I think that’s why they made it that way. The road to happiness has to have its bumps.”

Excerpt From: Klahr, Victoria. “That’s a Promise.” Victoria Klahr,

“Life isn’t meant to be easy. It’s about the choices we make to shape us—about making our own happiness.”

Necromancer’s Whisper by Alaina Stanford

image

only forbidden in the human realm, it doesn’t exist. It doesn’t exist for everyone except the Necromancer, who has taken Jack prisoner.

Jack travels to the realm of the barbarians across the sea to discover the whereabouts of the parents who failed to appear at the end of the school season. When time passes with no word from Jack, Nicole decides its time to take action and enters a human realm where magic is forbidden under penalty of death. Cabal and Nicole must hide their elven heritage. Meanwhile, Hopper and Tom discover the renegade trolls are on the move and armed for battle. Will Nicole and the others find Jack and return in time to defend their home from the renegades? Will Jack survive long enough to be found?

image

Nicole paced back and forth from the door to the wall near the head of the beds nearly out of her mind with claustrophobia. She cursed Cabal. He was the lucky one. He traded his passage as any poor farmer would by working all day out in the sun and wind as a deck hand. Nicole was supposed to be a recent widow and as such was a prisoner to the cabin. How could she have been so stupid? Why did she agree to be newly widowed? She yearned for the sunlight and fresh air. Yet a widow in morning gallivanting on the deck in the bright sunshine would be inappropriate. If she didn’t get some fresh air soon, Nicole was convinced she would kill someone. Probably Cabal, yes, most certainly Cabal. She’d kill him the next time he came through that door with a bright red sunburn and an exhausted smile on his face.

image

Author bio:

I have one of those brains that won’t turn off at night. Many nights I would distract my intellect by revamping a movie, book or TV show in my mind. I would twist and turn the plots and characters to achieve the ending I preferred. That developed into side stories about my favorite minor characters. Each night I fell asleep in the middle of a grand adventure. It wasn’t long before I began to create stories of my own and put pen to paper.

I love a good adventure. I love a good romance. As the mother of seven children, I also learned to love to play video games. One day it occurred to me to write an adventure that flowed like a video game and I added a touch of romance. Thus, Hypnotic Journey was born. The HJ characters are like a family to me. They are foolish, daring, resourceful, passionate and dedicated to their friends.

My love for Science Fiction gave birth to the Treborel Series. It’s a paranormal Sci-Fi romance featuring a psychotic villain and a multiple layer
of hero’s fighting to survive the chaos.

I write about how friendship and love can carry you through situations that you might not otherwise survive. You will find my stories exciting and steamy, but I am not an erotic writer. My stories fade to dark when the steam begins to rise, but take it from me, the steam does rise and emotions do soar.

Author Bio:

Candy O’Donnell was born in Carmichael, California.
At the age of twelve, she wrote her first mini book. Filled mostly with what took place with her mother and her long tedious bout with leukemia. It was a short story told as extra credit when she suffered a sprained ankle and had to be out of school for over two months. School officials refused to believe a word of what she had written until her grandmother, her guardian back then, entered the school with the truth. Everything she had written down was exactly what took place. Unfortunately her mother succumbed to the disease.
She earned a Bachelor’s degree in History and Culture. After living with her aunt and uncle for over five years she wished to explore her uncle’s Native heritage and did so with vigor. She also has 6 Grad units in Criminal Justice. Someday she might go back and finish her Master’s.

All the Wrong Places by Rebecca Fisher!

image

I was trying to follow the rhythm of his breathing. It was all I could hear anymore. His gentle hands held my face, and then one moved to my wrist, keeping time. My breathing started to slow, and I could smell him, the musky and insanely sexy smell of cologne and sweat. I could feel the warmth of his breath, and I knew he was just inches away. I didn’t want to move, and not because these episodes drained me of all energy, but because I wanted nothing more than to stay right there, with Oliver close enough to breathe in.
