“It’s the end of the world, and I have the best seat in the house.”
Armageddon has arrived. It’s not as bad as we thought.
The world is in trouble.
Correction.
The world is ending and soon. The last days are coming and humanity

Welcome to the Moon, where the air is thin, life is hard, and the Earth isn’t
fit to live on.
Now, how can we make things better?
Luna is Garon Whited’s science fiction and fantasy story of one man
surviving the end of the world despite it’s many obvious obstacles
and his attempt to save some of humanity.

and flies forward into the future.

Sunwalker

About the book

 

Lilly is a sunwalker—a vampire born from human parents, able to walk in the daylight. She lives life as human, hiding her true identity from all those around her. One evening, she comes to the rescue of her best friend, Lex, as a vampire is about to make a meal out of her. Lilly is drawn to him, despite her desire to loathe him for almost murdering Lex, as he is the first of her kind she has ever met.

As the vampire, Tread, begins to open Lilly’s eyes to a world she has never known, Lilly must decide where she belongs. After she is betrayed by the person she loves most, Lilly is forced to submerge herself entirely in the vampire world, only to discover that Tread has a secret so shocking it could destroy them all.

 

Excerpt

She heard a male voice whispering, “No it’s completely safe, we’ll just have a little more privacy back here.”

A giggle came from behind the building. It was definitely Lex, though how she knew that, Lilly had no idea. She would never have even been able to imagine Lex giggling. Lilly approached quietly and saw a man with his arm wrapped around Lex, kissing her as he pushed her up against the back wall of The Broken Coffee Pot. Then, in a flash, he had her neck at an angle. He pushed her hair off her neck and had his hand around her mouth.

“It’ll be so quick you’ll barely notice anything,” the man said. Then he winked at her and his eyeteeth extended into long fangs.

Lilly would never forget the look of terror in her friend’s eyes. Without even realizing what she was doing, she lunged at the man and sent him flying.

The man stood up inhumanly fast, and dusted some sand from his shirt. He seemed amused.

“Listen doll, I don’t know you, but generally speaking, when someone has their dinner ready and is about to eat, you go find your own. You don’t try and steal theirs.”

Lilly turned to Lex. “Run!” she yelled.

Lex stared hesitantly at Lilly for a brief moment and then took off in a mad dash, tripping on the sand as she tried to get away.

Lilly spun to block his pursuit. Her fangs slid out and a growl ripped through her teeth. She was taken aback at first, realizing the sound came from her and not the vampire in front of her.

The man stared at her, confused. Then he took a few slow steps forward with a look of awe on his face. “You’re a sunwalker,” he said with a hint of amusement.

“Yeah, and I’m stronger than the scum like you who are bitten into existence. So stay away from my friend,” Lilly spat with all the spite she could muster.

Before she realized what was happening, the vampire had her now pinned to the wall.

“You listen to me, little girl. You are nothing but an infant,” he scoffed. “You will watch how you talk to me,” he ordered as he squeezed her wrist tighter. “I have been around a long time. I’m smarter than you, faster than you, and stronger than you. Sunwalkers might be rare. But don’t ever assume you’re the only one.” He shoved her one more time hard against the wall, gripping her hand with one arm and using the other to hold her across the chest. Then, he released her.

“Ow!” Lilly said, rubbing her wrist. “That hurt.” She looked at him, dumbfounded. He was not just another vampire, but a sunwalker.

“That was the point,” he said, shaking his head, still trying to figure something out.

She rubbed her wrist. “It’s just, I’ve never been hurt before. I didn’t think we could get hurt.”

His jaw dropped. He opened it to speak, then shut it again. He shook his head.

“You do that a lot?” Lilly asked.

“Do what?”

“Walk around and shake your head.”

“I just don’t understand you…” He started to shake his head and stopped himself. Stifling a laugh, he asked, “Where are you from? What hospital were you born at? I don’t understand how we missed you. You must not have been born around here.”

“Hold on, as much as I’d love to stay and chat,” Lilly replied sarcastically, “you just tried to murder my friend.” She turned and started walking back around the building. She heard him muttering “friend” as she stalked off.

“Wait!” the stranger called.

Lilly didn’t bother turning around. “Yeah, I don’t think so,” she called, and then almost walked smack dab into him as he appeared in front of her.

“That was me asking politely, as a courtesy because you are my kind, and I fancy myself as a gentleman—” he began, but stopped as Lilly rubbed her wrist. “Well normally I am a gentleman. Someone stealing my dinner and then letting it run free seems to have put me in a foul mood. Nevertheless, as you’ve seen, I can make you stay.” He stepped back, holding his hands up non-threateningly and then added, “Just answer a few questions and then I’ll let you leave.”

Lilly wasn’t thrilled with this. She knew Lex must be going out of her mind right now. But after feeling his strength, she knew she really didn’t have a choice. Some kind of gentleman, threatening but polite, she thought.

“Fine,” she huffed. “Ask away. It’s not like I really have a choice.”

He gestured to a couple of crates and then sat down. Lilly hadn’t really had time to process all that had happened. But sitting across from this man, she realized for the first time that Lex had been right about one thing, he really was a hottie. He had long dark eyelashes and deep blue eyes. His hair hung in black waves and was a little longer than the guys’ at school, who kept their hair very short. It wasn’t like medieval times long, just grown out a little. He brushed his hand through his hair, pushing a lock out of his face. He was about six feet tall. And he was pale like she was. He seemed to be about the same age as her. This surprised her most; something about him had made her think he was much older. He was dressed nicely too. He had on khaki pants and a long sleeved button-down black dress shirt. Everything was neatly pressed with prominent straight creases. She didn’t see a wrinkle on his outfit. He seemed like he had just stepped off the pages of a GQ magazine.

“Ok, so—” he began.

“How did you know I was a sunwalker?” she interrupted.

“Because I can smell the sun on your skin,” he answered, appearing annoyed. “That and I can hear your heart beating. Now may I ask my questions?”

Lilly nodded. This was the first vampire she had ever met and a million questions flooded through her mind. But he did just try to kill Lex. She promised herself no matter how badly she wanted answers to her questions, she would just answer his and then go find her friend.

“Alright. Thank you,” he added. “Oh, I forgot my manners. I’m Tread.” He waited, then when he saw she wasn’t going to reciprocate, he prodded. “And you are?” he asked with an exaggerated but dazzling smile. “Remember you promised to answer my questions,” he reminded.

“Lilly,” she said, trying to be as defiant as she could, although admittedly it was getting harder.

“Lilly,” he repeated. Seemingly content, he continued. “Where are you from?”

Lilly gestured around her, “You’re looking at it. Good ole’ Harbor Cove, New Hampshire.”

He leaned closer. “Here’s the part that confuses me. What hospital were you born at? And you’re how old?”

“Seventeen. And I wasn’t born in a hospital.”

“Seventeen! You really are just a baby. Hmmmm.” Tread nodded to himself as if this confirmed his suspicions, whatever they were.

“What is ‘hmmmm’ supposed to mean? And how did you get past the fence anyway?” Lilly demanded after the realization struck that this vampire had been inside her city. Lex had said she met him at the movies, which meant he had gotten past the wall.

Tread laughed hard. “My questions, remember.” He stood up. “Last question. Am I the first vampire you’ve ever met?” He regarded her intently.

“Yes. Can I go now?” Lilly asked as she stood up, following Tread’s suit.

“Sure, unless you want to meet up with me again. Learn about our species. About what you are,” he said with a note of pity in his voice. “Because you really don’t seem to know much.”

“You want me to meet up with you after you just tried to murder my friend, then threatened me into answering your questions?” she asked in disbelief.

Tread stepped towards Lilly, closer than a human would, and she glanced at him nervously. “Why do you hang out with these happy meals?”

Confusion on her face, she asked, “Happy meals?”

“Humans. Sorry, I forget you don’t know the vampire jargon. Humans like fast food. And although they are not what I would call fast, that’s what we call them. They are FOOD, you know.” Then he grinned. “And they do make me so very, very happy.”

Lilly stepped back. “You’re disgusting. You know I sit here and look at you. Talk to you. You seem so human. But you’re not. You’re a monster.”

“We’re the same species, hon.” Tread replied as she walked off.

Lilly rushed around the corner and then checked to see if Tread was following her. When she saw he wasn’t, she pulled her phone out. There were twenty texts from Lex. She had been so engrossed in the scuffle and inquisition from Tread that the beeping hadn’t even registered with her. Not bothering to read them, she texted back quickly.

Ken Fry Mystery Thrillers – Book Tour + #Giveaway

28/07/2017

**
The Lazarus Succession
by Ken Fry
Genre: Historical Mystery Thriller
**
**
AMAZON UK TOP 10 RELIGIOUS MYSTERY
A modern-day suspense thriller with a medieval mystery.
A LEGEND TO SLAUGHTER FOR…
A TRUTH TO DIE FOR…
The Lazarus Succession takes readers to the ancient scene of
Christ’s greatest miracle, to medieval Spain, and back to modern-day
Europe. In typical Ken Fry style, nothing is as it seems and a
surprise awaits at every turn of the page.
According
to legend, Annas Zevi, an artist who witnessed the raising of
Lazarus, was told by Christ to paint what he saw. Over the centuries,
his completed works has vanished, along with every other painting
depicting Lazarus’ resurrection. They were rumoured to be sacred
icons
with miraculous powers.
International Art Recovery Experts, Broderick Ladro and Ulla Stuart, are
hired by a disgraced High Court judge, Sir Maxwell Throgmorton, to
locate a long lost medieval painting by Spanish artist Francisco
Cortez. Like Zevi, his work is said to be divinely inspired.
Throgmorton’s client, a wealthy Spanish Condesa, is terminally ill and
the icon is her last hope. She will pay and do whatever it takes to
find the missing work of Cortez.
Unbeknown to the Condesa, Throgmorton seeks to make a vast personal fortune
from the discovery of the paintings, and use it to reclaim his place
in society.
Ladro and Stuart learns of Throgmorton’s deceit and attempts to thwart his
plans. As they delve deeper into the mystery of the missing Cortez
painting, they discover a secret that changes their lives
forever.
Just as it changed the lives of everyone it touched across the centuries.
Praise for The Lazarus Succession
“…the supernatural elements, and their effect on the characters, are pure
genius. Even an old cynic like me was entranced. The addition of a
little historical flavour, in the shape of frequent glances into a
beautifully depicted medieval Spain, gives the novel context, and a
timeless magic I found addictive.This is polished fiction of the
highest calibre, and I’m more than happy to award 5 stars.”
Stuart Kenyon, author
“…this is an excellent novel with many twists and turns, the pacing is
perfection, the characters are wonderful and the ending couldn’t be
better. If you want a riveting tale that will hold you in thrall from
the first page to the last, then this is your book.”
Carol Marrs Phipps, author
“The Lazarus Succession has a great historical and religious foundation
combined with a dynamic plot, twists, and turns. Ken Fry knows how to
keep the reader’s attention and trigger their emotional response.”
Lilah E. Noir, author

The Patmos Enigma
by Ken Fry
Genre: Historical Mystery Thriller
**
**
With the success of his UK Top 10 bestselling religious mystery, The
Lazarus Succession, Ken Fry once again crafts
a cunning and
explosive historical thriller
unlike any you’ve read
before.


Tel Aviv, Israel. Archaeologist
Joshua Agar makes a stunning discovery when on one of his excavation
sites, they unearth an ancient ossuary, untouched
since the day it was buried. Evidence and analysis reveals that the
contents of the find appear to be the six of the Seven Seals
mentioned in the bible’s Book of Revelation.
The Seventh is missing.
Meanwhile, a mysterious man has
been walking the Earth for millennia. He waits…
amassing knowledge and power, seeking to bring about the one event
that would release him from his endless existence. With
the discovery in Tel Aviv, his waiting might soon be over.
Joshua Agar and his team, Professor Simon Rockwell and Dr. Rachel Carver
soon realises the significance of their find. An ancient society
known as The Keepers awakens, and they are after the Seven Seals. For
it has been told, that whosoever breaks the seven seals will
have unimaginable power and control
over the new world
promised through the Second Coming of Christ.
The frantic hunt for the Seventh Seal begins. Through dusty caves, ancient churches,
and even within the most secretive vault on earth, they search
for clues
to the possible resting place of the missing
seal.
The archaeologists are not alone. Another ancient secret
brotherhood called the Guardians have long protected the Seven Seals,
since the time John of Patmos entrusted to them the Seventh. Using
their resources, they attempt to discover the identity of The Grand
Keeper and impede his plans for global upheaval.
As scientists, the archaeologists perceive their discovery as a
historical relic and not a religious find. But with the
forces aroused by the unearthing of the artefact
, they start to
question if there is indeed truth in the story.
The Patmos Enigma will take you on a journey of wonders and thrills as it
hurtles from dark truths to enlightening revelations as
the war between science and mysticism commences.

Review of Hunt by Rachel Vincent

Hunt (Shifters #6.5)Hunt by Rachel Vincent
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love the Shifter series which is based around Faythe Sanders, who is a female werecat that becomes the first, female, pride enforcer.

Hunt is a short story that follows on from the six and final book in the werecat series, Alpha.

It is based around a young female werecat, Abby Wade. Abby makes her first appearance in Stray and it good to revisit the character to see her grown up, and over coming her fears, and doubts around her abilities to protect herself, and her friend. It is a bonus that the sexy werecat, now Alpha, Jace has a cameo in this story. He was one of my favorite characters in the original series. This is a highly entertaining story from Ms Vincent and if you enjoyed the Shifter series you will certainly enjoy this.

I am looking forward to reading the Lion’s share, which is a Wildcats novel. The first book in the spin off series. Thank you so much Ms Vincent.

I’d like to introduce my guest this week, Samanthya Wyatt.

My guest this week on the Author’s Blog is Samanthya Wyatt.

sam

Bio: Samanthya lives with her husband in the Shenandoah Valley. She left her accounting career and married a military man traveling and making her home in the United States and abroad. Once she found historical romance novels, she couldn’t put a book down. She fell in love with the characters and needed to know their happy ending.

One day she put words to paper creating a story of her own. The more she wrote, the more she became involved with the characters, and they seemed to take a life of their own. She relishes the challenge of penning a story with strong characters, a bit of humor, and active scenes. She enjoys creating new characters and bringing them together in a romantic tale. It took years of writing, joining RWA, joining chapters, entering contests, submissions & rejections which created the author she is today. By keeping her spirit and turning criticism into drive she has achieved her career as a published romance author.

Samanthya’s latest novel is The Only One, book 3 of The One and Only Series. Released on the 14th October 2015.

He must flee for his life and he takes her with him—back to England—back to the family she’d deserted. She wants her family to forgive her, but she wants Stephen’s love even more.

Something More

A determined man, a headstrong woman, and a battle of wills.

Matthew longs for a woman to share his life, not his bank account. He owns a prestigious company that he rules with an iron fist. On his way to an important meeting, a light flirtation turns into more than he expects. He meets a woman with more confidence and strength than most men. Long legs get his attention, but Carrie attracts his interest. The alluring beauty does not need his money, and makes it clear she does not need him. He accepts the unspoken challenge.

Carrie trusts no man. An executive partner, she possesses a confidence that makes her assertive and her aggressiveness toward the male gender is somewhat intimidating. Until a pair of mischievous eyes melts her defenses, and has her second guessing her convictions. The day he shoved her into that cab he must have chiseled a chink in her armor. Matthew charges into her well organized life, cracks the stone wall she’s built and instills an emotion she swore never to allow.

Infatuation and excitement spark a journey of passion and forbidden emotion where two people must overcome their earlier convictions to find an everlasting love.

Relax and lay the worries of the world off your shoulders and get lost in the pages of a romance. Become involved in a dream. Plunge into a world of fantasy. Live an adventure your heart can share.

Here’s more from The Only One

“I was not spying.”

“Of course you weren’t. Judging from the conversation I interrupted, no young girl would know the subject they were discussing anyway.”

Her face flushed scarlet. He arched a brow. Surely she had no idea the boys were speaking of tupping a girl’s skirts.

“You’re handsome,” the girl stated baldly, expanding a breath as if she’d held her mouth closed too long.

He didn’t know whether to be flattered or feel concern at a possible purpose behind her words.

“What do you know of handsome men?”

“My brothers, I guess are handsome. But they’re my brothers. I don’t care enough about other men to consider them handsome.”

Care?

“So then, why are you here?” He gave her his best glare.

“I’ve grown out of pigtails. I’m a woman now.”

Swallowing his amazement, he nearly choked. “Donning a dress does not make you a woman.” His gaze dipped in a slow, silent perusal. The damn girl’s breeches emphasized her curves, leaving nothing to a man’s imagination. Not that he should notice, of course, but . . . Damnation. She didn’t look the least like a child.

“I see you’ve resorted to breeches again. After your brothers’ reproaching insults, I would think you’d learned your lesson.”

She thrust out her chest. “Papa always said I had spirit. I am not unwise.”

“You think it wise to hide in a tackle bin? To be alone here with me?”

“You’re a duke. A gentleman.”

He gave a harsh laugh. “Being a duke does not make me a gentleman.”

“But Aunt Cornelia said English aristocrats live by their honor. You’re a nobleman. You have integrity, and morals.”

“Morals? Honor? A man lives by his own decree. What if I were to take liberties?”

“I can handle you.” Her eyes lit up and she seemed too sure of herself.

The gall of the chit.

With one quick movement, his hands shot out and jerked her against his chest. A gasp rushed from her throat, but she boldly held his gaze. With deliberate daring, his arms imprisoned her. He watched the emotions flitting over her face. He meant to punish, to teach, to frighten. His gaze lowered to her mouth.

He’d send her fleeing for good.

He captured her lips in a forceful kiss.

Her fingers twisted his shirt.

Good God, she kissed him back. With such enthusiasm, he was flabbergasted.

Unconscionable, that one so young should kiss with such skill. Had the damned girl been coached? She should slap him, call him a knave. Push him away, scream at him. Instead, she twined her arms about his neck while her warm, seeking tongue pirouetted a mating dance with his.

Chest heaving, he grabbed her shoulders and thrust her away.

“Where the hell did you learn to kiss like that?”

Carly what will readers love most about your hero and heroine?

I think the humor in their relationship. They start out barely knowing anything about each other, yet are expected to get married and become a family. It’s a definite love/hate relationship for Alex and Jennifer in the beginning.

Do you have a favourite moment or scene from your book that you would like to  share? 

Yes I do! “What?” Jennifer said. “I’m not ready to be married to you. I don’t even know you.”

Alex had had just about enough of her routine. “Listen, sweetheart, it’s no picnic being with you either. I’m tired of trying to live up to your lofty expectations. I’m not David Kyle, nor would I want to be. I’m doing this all for you, to protect you and Davy. A little gratitude would be welcome.”

“Excuse me?” Anger flashed in her eyes. “You are darn lucky that I even give you the time of day. You overbearing, egotistical control freak.”

“Control freak!” Alex shouted weakly. “Are we back to that song and dance again? Can’t you come up with some original material? I’ve busted my ass in order to help you, and you have the nerve to say I’m controlling you?”

“Oh, what a load of crap, Alex! You are not doing this for me or Davy. You are doing it for Lily.” Jennifer spun away from him in disgust.

What words best describe your book?

Fun and Freaky

Here is a little more about The Awakening.

ALEX McGUIRE never dreamed his life would take such a turn. His plan to complete college, become a lawyer, and marry his girlfriend, LILY LAVERY, tanked following his kidnapping to the alternate realm known as Paradise Valley. Now Alex has been ordered by a dead man, DAVID KYLE, to marry his young wife, JENNIFER BURKE KYLE, and raise their infant son, DAVY KYLE, as his own. That would be a great plan if it weren’t for the fact that Jennifer is still in a coma, has never met him, and her son has some strange attributes too.

JENNIFER BURKE KYLE woke from the coma to the realization that she was a widow and the mother of a young son who could read minds, create portals to an alternate realm, and have unforeseen growth spurts when he is in or near Paradise Valley. As if that wasn’t enough, a complete stranger has stated he is to marry her and raise her son as his own. All on the order of her dead husband, David.

DAVY KYLE was tickled pink that Alex McGuire would be his Dad and couldn’t wait for his mother to wake from the coma so the wedding could take place. What Davy didn’t see, was the trouble in the form of PRI, otherwise known as the Percival Research Institute. PRI agents were after his family and it was going to be up to Davy to hide them all until it was safe.

Together, Alex, Jennifer, Davy, and their friends from Paradise Valley, must join together to keep the family safe, destroy PRI, and protect the still comatose COLIN O’BRIEN, the last member of their Paradise Valley family. With the help of student nurse, DEANA COOK, they may just succeed in their plan and find happiness along the way.
