Shenanigans
by Gail Koger
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Kandi Cain inherited her Dr. Doolittle abilities from her grandmother and became a psychic pet detective. To her dismay, she just acquired the power to communicate with the spirit world, but dead people give her the willies. 


Just when Kandi thought her life couldn’t get more complicated, the neighbor from hell moved in next door. The nasty guy’s name is Dutch Callaghan. How can someone so gorgeous be such a dick? Kandi could chalk some of it up to his job. Dutch is a Phoenix PD homicide cop. 

Kandi’s current case is rescuing a Yorkie from a brutal dog fighting ring. Little does she know her dog napping suspect is involved in a series of brutal murders. Disguised as an elderly nun, Kandi rescues the Yorkie and, in the process, blows the hell out of Dutch’s undercover operation.

Kandi now finds herself a person of interest in her client’s murder and her sexy-as-hell, pain-in-the-butt neighbor is in hot pursuit of the Ninja Nun. Is Dutch about to slap the cuffs on? Only time will tell.




How do I come up with my stories? Being psychotic helps. I was a 9-1-1 dispatcher for way too long. All those years of wild requests, screwy questions, bizarre behavior and outrageous demands have left me with a permanent twitch and an uncontrollable craving for chocolate. Don’t get me wrong. Working as a 9-1-1 dispatcher can be very rewarding. BUT - some days I felt like the entire world was nuts. I mean, c’mon, who in their right mind calls 9-1-1 for the winning lottery numbers? To keep from hitting myself repeatedly in the head with my phone, I took up writing.

Blog Tour: Coletti Warlords by Gail Koger + Giveaway

Vexing Voss
Coletti Warlords Book #3
by Gail Koger
Genre: SciFi Romance, Adventure 

For Voss, a Coletti Warlord, conquering the universe is a piece of cake. After all, he's a master of psychic seduction; no one can resist him when he sets his mind to it.


Zoey Jones is determined to find her mother's killer. Surrendering to a fierce Coletti warrior is the last thing on her mind. When Voss is determined to make Zoey his mate, she unleashes her own brand of whoop-ass to discourage his pursuit. When her clever disguises, skunk perfume, stun gun, and smoke bombs fail to stop the ruthless warlord, she's forced to negotiate her surrender: she would mate with him if he would help her find her mother's killer.

To Zoey's surprise, Voss agrees, and the hunt is on. Their quest to bring the villain to justice leads to unlikely alliances in an interplanetary war, and more surprisingly, to love.




Reality Bites
Coletti Warlords Book #4

Bree never thought her dimwit act, military grade mace, cattle prod, or dumping a ton of stinky manure on Jaylan's head would encourage his pursuit. Who knew a Coletti warlord would think being zapped with a cattle prod as foreplay? Or that a clever opponent only heightened his enjoyment of the chase?


The chase comes to an abrupt halt when the Tai-Kok attack Tucson, forcing Bree to team up with the Coletti warlord to stop them. Suddenly plucked from Earth by a crazed Tai-Kok commander, Jaylan and Bree find themselves stranded on a hostile alien world, and being tracked by a deadly Askole assassin. Neither of them expected to find love.




Just Desserts
Coletti Warlords Book #5

Kaylee knew being a Coletti Warlord's mate wasn't going to be easy. Not only was Talree downright scary, he had a bossy streak a mile long and collected enemies like most men collected lovers. But while Kaylee's life might not be perfect, Talree truly loved her.


Flash forward nine months to a very pregnant, insanely hormonal and cranky as hell Kaylee. If the pregnancy wasn't enough to drive her crazy, Talree's enemies are tap dancing on her last nerve. The Shani Queen Mother, a psychotic alien with a bone to grind against Talree, decided she wanted the planet Tartum--a barren piece of crap loaded with Ditrum crystals, and part of the Coletti Empire. Her master plan? Kidnap Kaylee and hold her for ransom. If the Overlord refused to give Tartum to the Queen Mother, she would feed Kaylee and her son to the Tai-Kok.

She thinks Kaylee will beg for mercy. Boy, is the alien bitch in for a surprise. She's about to meet a woman suffering from hormone overload and a serious lack of chocolate. The only one begging for mercy will be the Queen Mother.




Wulf and the Bounty Hunter
Coletti Warlords Book #6

Wulf knows Yakira is his soulmate. Now he just needs to convince her. But with intergalactic terrorists on Yakira’s trail, there’s little time for romance. What’s a hot-blooded Coletti warlord to do?


Yakira feels safe and cherished with Wulf, but he is a Coletti--the ultimate predator with a taste for blood, a passion for battle, and the need to control everything in his life. The big question is: how does she make Wulf understand she’s a powerful psychic with kick-ass bionic limbs and quite capable of taking care of herself?




Game On Askole
Coletti Warlords #7

Tihar travels to Earth to find and claim a Jones female. He knows they are fearless, psychic warriors, and talented in bed sport. Ten minutes after meeting Sarah, Tihar knows the feisty little human is the one he has been searching for. Now he must convince Sarah that she's meant to be his. He thinks Earth girls are easy. he’s about to learn that messing with a Jones female is never a good idea.


The first time Sarah sees Tihar, she's a wee bit freaked out. The Askole warrior has tentacles, snakelike features, and black, armored-plated skin. Even weirder, she finds him strangely attractive. Tihar's torso is sculpted perfection and his black scales are actually kind of sexy. Who knew challenging Tihar to combat would start the Askole mating dance?

As the two grow closer, their romance comes to a screeching halt when Askole rebels attack Tihar's home world. He tells Sarah she is his heart's destiny and that he will love her to the end of time, then he abruptly severs their mental bond and disappears. Sarah's left reeling from shock, but she's a Jones and isn't about to let a galactic war stop her from hunting down her mate. Can the two of them find their way back into each other’s arms?

Publisher's Note: The first half of Game On Askole is a prequel to Vexing Voss, and the second part moves forward three years.




Crossing Quinn
Coletti Warlords #8

Quinn Jones is a formidable Coletti warlord. His mission is to capture Xenia and bring her back to Tanith to be mated with a warrior the Overlord has chosen. Problem is, Quinn finds himself falling for the beautiful Farin. Her unusual “psychic powers, combat training and berserker abilities” make her the perfect mate for him. How does he convince Xenia and the Overlord that she’s meant to be his? 


Xenia and her parents are relic hunters who just discovered the fabled home world of the Nabateans. She isn’t about to leave the greatest find of the century to hook up with some Coletti. Not happening. Ever. No matter how many threats the Overlord makes or that he’s sending his best hunter to apprehend her. Okay, she’ll admit she’s drawn to the handsome warlord and she loves the way Quinn’s heavily muscled body fills out his black battle suit, but the egotistical jerk is about to get his ass handed to him. 

When the galaxy is threatened with annihilation, Xenia and Quinn join forces to stop the murderous Tai-Kok. Fate has brought them together and nothing will stand in the way of their victory or their love.

Book Blitz: If Walls Could Talk by FINN

If Walls Could Talk
by FINN

‘The decision to live a dream, or keep facing reality seems easy enough;
but if you had that choice, what would you choose? The perfect paradise,
or the trial of life? It seems easy enough. But dreams are often twisted
and misconstrued; like a rumour. It could start out innocent enough, but
put it on repeat, and you start to notice the changes.’

Louis Stan had always struggled with letting his walls down and letting
others in. Being gay hadn’t helped, but being an outcast didn’t seem to
be the only problem. He had always tried to see the light, even in the
darkest times, but with each passing day; it gets harder. He becomes
more closed off. Not letting the light reach him.

But as the soft voice of a caring boy slips through his bedroom wall, Louis
finds himself seeing little bits of that light again. But with it, Louis notices
the darkness from the past, he tried to move on from, starts to become
illuminated.

Will this mystery boy help Louis bring down his walls, or will the past
continue to haunt him?

"Best new fantasy series books" one reader claims….

Follow them as they wind through periods in time, to discover ancient magic from cultures all throughout the history of the world in this best fantasy book in a long time.

Success for Melanthios means that the entirety of this planet will fall under her control. Our world will become dark, bleak, cold and lorded over by her demons – forever.

Pull up a chair, sit back, and join them in their quest as Persy and her friends race against fate and time, to stop Melanthios from her evil plot to collect nine mystical objects of power scattered throughout the world to become the –All Powerful One.–

Persy, Thaddeus, Benson and P-C are assisted by a highly adept, scrying gypsy named Vadoma, a vampire with a rather warped sense of humor - Count Pseudomorphius the Sanguine who is known as Murph...for obvious reasons.

Not to be forgotten is the twelve member Magical Governing Council, which Persy's grandmother Laurel is one of the lead members. Each member specializes in a particular area of magic and all have a gift to give our heroes to further enhance their chances against Melanthios.

But is it enough? Melanthios is evil and heartless....and VERY powerful...

As expected, Krak Ling hunts them down to take his ring back, but in the negotiations, he reveals the next Magic Object which Melanthios is about to attempt to capture…The Cauldron of Ceridwen.

They make their way to Killarney, an area in Ireland, where Lady Druanna's manor is located and there she tells them the tale of The Cauldron. It's not the vessel which is so important to all Magicals but the first three drops of the Brew it creates. But their visit to Lady Dru's is violently interrupted, resulting in severe injury to the Lady and the kidnapping of Thaddeus by the malevolent Melanthios.

Weaving and scribing of the eight remaining tomes continues in Lady Ellen's remote witch's hut…on her tiny piece of Ontario's Cambrian Shield" …and indeed that's where the series began.

After more than 3 decades as an alternative health care practitioner, I finally managed to start devoting some serious time to my secret love--fantasy fiction.

I've always loved fantasy, magic and mythical kingdoms.  We home-schooled our kids and lived on a 100 acre farm..which had about twenty-five acres in forest.
We'd make up stories and adventures..lots of fairies, witches, wizards, etc. 

Now, all these years later, I've started on my nine-book, three trilogy magical series...The Persephane Pendrake Chronicles and have released Books 1, 2 and 3... The Cimaruta, The Cauldron of Ceridwen and Lapis Draconis.

Book Review: Inked Temptation by Kay Maree


My Review:
I loved this book. It was a great start to a new series. I also love how its set in Australia. I have to say this is my fav book by this author.

Xavier is a twenty-six year old tattoo artist and owner of Xtreme Ink. He is your typical alpha male but he has a heart of gold and is a big family man.

Ally has lived a very painful and tragic life, she's isolated herself from everyone trying to protect what's left of her broken heart but thats until X works his way in.

I could not put this book down and fell in love with both Xavier and Ally. I already want book two now. I highly recommend this book.
