Jean Marre’s recent life has been one big surprise right after another. First his family moved to SoCal from a remote French Canadian town. Then he began feeling a strange compulsion to watch over a smart little blonde named Ever Moore. In fact he found himself restless, distracted, and uncomfortable if she wasn’t around.

Life just couldn’t get stranger.

Excerpt:
Jean Marre
folded himself into the front passenger seat of Ever’s car to ride to school.
For the entire fifteen minutes it took to get there, neither said one word to
the other. That did not, however, mean that they didn’t dork with each other
all the way there.
 Jean Marre’s opening shot was to change her
satellite radio to a different channel. Hair Band Nation. She gaped at him for
a full four seconds when her eyes should have been on the road before punching
the number one button to return to Sounds of the SuperNow. He stared at her
blankly for a matching four seconds then, without taking his gaze away from her
or changing expression, reached over and pushed the button to return to “last
played”. Hair Band Nation.
After three more
volleys, Ever turned the radio off with a snarl. When Jean Marre started to
reach for it, she gave him a look that froze his had midair. He withdrew the
offending appendage, but the challenge Ever offered with her look brought a
gleam of amusement to his eyes. 
He did not touch
the radio again.
Instead he
rolled down his window which, of course, threatened to make a beachy wreck of
her hair. She rolled it back up. He rolled it down. She rolled it back up and,
with a sneer of victory, pushed the child lock into place before he could do it
again. His bark of laughter surprised her and, if she was being perfectly
honest, pleased her.
She was not
being perfectly honest. He had a nice laugh, but she was not ready to give him
any concession.
She pulled into
her assigned parking space, which was located in the remotest region of
Mongolia because she was a sophomore, got out, and started walking without
looking back. It was a hike, but at least she could bring a car, unlike
freshmen.
Halfway there
she looked over her shoulder. Jean Marre was about twenty feet behind her.
“Don’t worry about me.” He grinned. “I like the view from here.”
Understanding
the implication, Ever sped up, which made Jean Marre laugh loud enough for her
to hear. The boy seemed to revel in being exasperating. That realization caused
Ever to think she needed to reform her approach to Jean Marre. Perhaps she
needed to think in terms of opposite world, since everything she did rendered
the reverse of a desired effect.
She stopped, got
control of her breathing, waited for him to catch up and fell in at the same
pace. She would never admit that they were walking together. Only that they
were moving toward the same place at the same time at the same speed. Together.
When he said,
“Excellent choice,” she knew she’d been manipulated. By a boy who didn’t even
want to go to college. It was vexing, to say the least.

*
Every animal can talk to you. You just have to know how to listen.
Pepper Neely is better at this than most, especially because she is in
charge of pet sitting all the familiars in her neighborhood. A
familiar is a pet magically linked to a witch or warlock. As a gnome,
Pepper is no stranger to spells and sorcery. She also knows that,
despite their special name, familiars aren’t all that different
from regular animals. They get anxious when separated from their
people, so Pepper uses her special gnome powers to calm them down.
She watches Cranky the high-strung ferret, Frank the laid-back
parrot, King Arthur the elderly tortoise, and many others.
Then, something terrible begins happening to the familiars. Someone is
stealing their magic! It not only prevents Pepper from communicating
with them but breaks their magical connection with their people. When
King Arthur’s magic is stolen, his owner’s powers stop working
too. Pepper can sense that the tortoise is very scared.
In order to protect the animal’s magic, Pepper decides to track down the
culprit. With the help of her best friend, Luna, and her brother,
Jax, Pepper fights to protect all of the special pets.

The Dastardly Miss Lizzie by Viola Carr – Book Tour + #Giveaway

The
Dastardly Miss Lizzie
An
Electric Empire Novel
Book Three
Viola
Carr
On sale: 4/18/2017
ISBN: 9780062363121
In the third book in Viola Carr’s
fantastically fun and wonderfully edgy Electric Empire novel, set in the gritty
world of alternate Victorian London, Dr. Eliza Jekyll must team up with her
secret other half, Miss Lizzie Hyde, as her world comes crashing to a halt when
a madman begins targeting the city’s most important scientists, and sorcerers
threaten all she holds dear.
About
the Book:
Crime scene physician Eliza
Jekyll is trying to share a life with her rebellious second self, Lizzie Hyde.
But being two people in one body isn’t easy, not when Eliza has a professional
reputation to protect and Lizzie is veering headfirst into a life of debauchery
and crime with an increasingly demented Mr. Hyde. Not to mention the difficulty
of making a respectable marriage with Remy Lafayette–Royal Society
investigator and occasional lycanthrope–while Lizzie enjoys her own dubious
romantic entanglements. And with England on the brink of war, Remy’s secretive
mission in sorcery-riddled Paris grows ever more sinister. Has he been an enemy
agent all along? Or is Eliza finally going mad?
Now, she’s confronted by her most
baffling case yet: an evil genius with a penchant for theatrics is murdering
eminent scientists in the most inexplicable ways. Her investigation uncovers a
murky world of forbidden books, secret laboratories and bleeding-edge science
punishable by death–and a shocking connection to her father’s infamous
experiments. Desperate to learn the truth about her past, she must infiltrate a
cabal of fanatical inventors bent on a discovery that will change the world–or
destroy it.
With London under attack by
sorcery-wielding terrorists, and the Royal Society’s enforcers determined to
bury her evidence for good, Eliza needs all the friends she can get if she’s to
thwart the killer and keep her head. But when Lizzie’s criminal shenanigans get
Eliza fired from the Metropolitan Police, and Remy is implicated in an act of
bloody vengeance he didn’t commit (or did he?), she’s on her own.
Except for wily, resourceful, mercurial
Lizzie. But Lizzie’s got her own life now. And she’ll do anything to keep it.
Even if it means attempting the unspeakable and finding her own body. Even if
it means throwing Eliza to the wolves, and letting the world burn…

Tortured Souls Book 1

Shrouded in unspeakable horror and spoken of only in whispers, the abandoned
Devil’s Cove Manor lures Captain Devlin Limmerick and his
unquenchable thirst for revenge to its doors. Feared as the Devil on
the high seas, the pirate’s desire to avenge his past is matched only
by his hunger for the powerful young medium he has coerced to aid him
in his nefarious quest.
Blinded from youth and touched with an ability to communicate beyond the
grave, Grace is both feared and revered by the uneasy town folk. Yet
she is powerless against the unrest brewing within the manor walls
and finds herself drawn to the Devil’s darkness. Still, she refuses
to sacrifice her soul to set Devlin’s unspeakable plans in motion.
But an evil lurks within these walls, and their very souls are in
jeopardy. Grace’s presence at the manor spurs inexplicable
happenings, forcing Devlin to believe nothing is as dead as it seems
– not even his heart. Plunged into the throes of passion and danger,
they discover the only way out is to search deep within and summon
the courage to believe in true love.

Genre: A Sexy Paranormal Thriller

Raina loved performing upon the London stage, but one night she found
herself dancing for only
HIM.
She froze, and looked to the balcony where the gaslights flickered
dimly over his shadowy form. If only she had known that this
beautiful monster would soon rip her away from everything in the
world
SHE EVER LOVED, perhaps she wouldn’t have lingered so long.
Marcus loved being a blood thirsty predator, but one night his gallivanting
brought him to his knees in front of
HER.
If only he’d known what would happen when she danced, that she
would remind him of someone who was everything in the world
HE
EVER LOVED
, perhaps he would’ve turned away.
As he drags her deeper and deeper into his depraved world of torture and
violence, she begins fighting with her own darkness that threatens to
consume her every day. And oh, how it begs to be released. And though
she knows it’s wrong, she desires her captor anyway.
Until she begins falling for someone else…
Meanwhile, prostitutes are being butchered in the streets and she begins to
wonder: Is her dark lover, the one she is bound to, The Ripper?
With an accurate account of the creepy gaslit times of London and real
Jack the Ripper crime scenes, Loved By A Killer is an exciting read
from start to finish.

Reviews
“Hot damn! are you serious?” I’m in love. I’m seriously entranced.”
-Nicole Horn
“As soon as I got to page 3, I was like well, I know what I’m doing the
rest of the night. I loved all the real serial killers and horror,
mixed with a hot romance.” -Holly Byers
“I know I have things to do but this story is so good and I’m riveted.
So intense.” – E. B. Black
“I absolutely loved it and couldn’t put it down.” -Sherry Aue
Beautifully written, and the story flows, gripping you from the moment you meet
Lord Marcus Loxley in that first chapter. I love the intricate
historical aspects of the book, the underlying Jack the Ripper story,
and the uniqueness of Ms. Rabbiosi’s vampires. I absolutely enjoyed
each second of this book and can’t wait to read more from this
author.
-Amazon reviewer D.C. Triana
*
I feel like I could write a book on this book. I was instantly
captivated from the very first chapter and it didn’t let me go until
the last page. I absolutely loved this story. Lord Marcus Loxley is a
very complex character that seemed so “human” (pardon the
expression considering he’s a vampire), that I felt like I was
experiencing everything as he was. This book had so many different
facets to it. Historical London. Jack the Ripper as a back story.
Crime. Lust. Greed. Poverty. Death. Blood. It was the type of story
that you’re sad when it’s over because you’re forced to leave the
world you were just completely immersed in. Rabbiosi does a fantastic
job with the historical elements and I cannot wait to read more by
this very talented author!
-Amazon reviewer J. Saman
*
This was quite an interesting concept for a book. I was thrilled to find
out that the events regarding the historical murders were accurate.
The twists and turns of the plot are easy to follow, but not easy to
predict. I’m plenty excited for the next book to come out to see what
happens next!

The Fortune Teller’s Secret
A Cavendish Brown Paranormal Mystery Book 2
by Ron D. Voigts
Genre: Paranormal Mystery

A dead man on a Ferris wheel and a cold-case murder take Cavendish
Brown into a world of carnival freaks, ghosts, and killers.
The annual carnival comes to Maiden Falls, a small town in the West
Virginia Mountains, but everything is not merry.


The ghost of a woman appears to Cavendish Brown, a carnival worker lies
dead aboard a car on the Ferris wheel, and a bullied teenager plots
to kill people at the carnival with a homemade bomb. More
complications arise. Cavendish again butts heads with the local
sheriff, Clinton Pike.
Marbella Wellingway, owner of the newspaper where Cavendish works, receives a

knows something that could forever change Cavendish’s life.
With the aid of Jane, a disturbed psychic, and Alexandra, a Goth witch, he
must find the killer, help the mystery woman, and risk his life to
prevent more deaths.
fts- excerpt
*

From the darkness came a whisper.

“Help me.”

I heard the woman’s voice clearly. Yet everywhere was black. A void. Impenetrable and empty.

“Help me, please.”

Sounds beyond the woman’s plea filled the vacuum. Somewhere a happy tune played on a pipe organ, the music dancing in the wind, a prelude to a circus parade with clowns and acrobats and a dancing bear. Children and adults laughed and cheered. Wonderful scents lingered in the air. Sweet cotton candy and popcorn elicited memories of happy times.

Something else filled the atmosphere. The smells of dampness and dirt mingled, forcing back the joy. Decaying leaves and rot stung my nose. I retched at the stench of death.

Disjointed images, fuzzy around the edges, traveled toward me then fell away into nothingness. A farm tractor. A wood rail fence. And a sign, blurred except for the words “GATE MUST BE KEPT CLOSED.”

With the snap, the darkness returned.

In the black, a speck of light grew into an image, taking form and shape. A woman stood in front of me, dressed gaily in a short ruffled pink skirt below a yellow long-sleeve shirt with triangles of black print. Leg warmers like a dancer might wear were bunched around her ankles. A blue ribbon tied in a bow kept back wild, unruly hair.

Her wide blue eyes stared at me, unblinking. Her lips, painted bright red, pursed.

“Help me.”

A dark wet spot appeared in her brown hair on the left side of her head, growing like a stain. Blood trickled from the edge of her ear and to her throat. Her head twisted, and a deep gash formed on its side.

She stretched out her arms as if crucified and fell backward in slow motion, tumbling away, then crashing with a deep thud. Her head struck the earth and the blue ribbon came loose. She twisted at an impossible angle, arms and legs bent like a broken doll.

A man in a denim jacket hovered above her, clutching a rock. He stared at the blood covering his hand. A shiver passed through him. He released the rock, letting it vanish into the shadows that surrounded everything.

Another man with his back toward me sauntered up to the woman and stopped at her feet. He wore a white T-shirt with a cigarette pack rolled into the sleeve. He scratched the back of his head, mussing his hair. “What did you do, Johnny boy?”

“I killed her!” The man in denim fell to his knees.

The one in the T-shirt took a drag on a cigarette and tossed it aside. “I’ll take care of things.”

Shadows swelled around them and eclipsed everything except the woman’s face. Her eyes opened. Her lips parted. The whisper came once more. “Please, help me.”

“No, no.” I wanted to run and flee this place of death, to be away from these evil men. “No.”
