And a human, even one as desirable as Cal, does not fit into them. But as the enemy darkindred knock on the borders and the magic of his people fades, he might just have to find room.

But her carefully constructed reality is turned upside down when she discovers that Relian, the seductive elvin prince who has been starring in her sensuous fantasies, isn’t merely a myth and his magical kingdom really exists. Now she’s bound to an elf and stuck in a land where no one, least of all Relian, is willing to spill any answers about the truth of her arrival.

Two people, two worlds meet in the mist

Even as love grows between them, can they lay aside their differences to embrace a life together?

Pulse and Prejudice
Colette L. Saucier
The definitive vampire adaptation of the Jane Austen classic.
When the haughty and wealthy Fitzwilliam Darcy arrives in the rural county of Hertfordshire, he finds he cannot control his attraction to Elizabeth Bennet – a horrifying thought because, as she is too far below his social standing to ignite his heart, he fears she must appeal to the dark impulses he struggles to suppress.
Set against the vivid backdrop of historical Regency England, this adaptation of Pride and Prejudice follows the cursed Mr. Darcy as he strives to overcome both his love and his bloodlust for Miss Elizabeth Bennet.   This compelling variation remains faithful to the original plot and style of Austen’s timeless classic but tells Darcy’s story as he descends into the seedier side of London and introduces Elizabeth to a world of passion and the paranormal she never knew existed. 

Nocturnally Vexed

King’s Cross Station, London, England, 2006
“He’s killed again, Vex.” Vex stared at the grainy black and
white photos, taken one hundred and eighteen years earlier, comparing them to the full color photos taken overnight. Detective Red O’Malley had no choice but to ask for his help. Vex was their last resort. He was used to dealing with the undead, whether it be of the blood sucker variety or the elusive shifter-rapt, after all, he was a combination of the two.

Vex Savaker works as special detective for the Metropolitan Police and has been called to work on the recent Whitechapel killings. The murders resemble the autumn killings of 1888 when Jack-the-Ripper terrorized London. Chastity “Chass” Bartholomew is a seasoned investigative reporter working for London’s newspaper, The Daily Mirror. Chass’s virgin status is far too dangerous with a modern day Jack-the-Ripper on a virgin killing spree. Nunhead Cemetery is a hotbed of paranormal activity and unexplained phemomena but Chass is just too good of a reporter to stay away. Can Vex protect her from the night creatures of London and steer the killer away? Can he protect her from his own dark side, from the beasts within?

I am Hephaestus. God of inventions, blacksmiths, and volcanoes. Sounds like I'm awesome right? Well, I'm not. In fact, I'm the loser of Olympus and a new bachelor to boot. Living the single life had been great until a decade passed and if my divorce from the Goddess of Love wasn't bad enough, I was still being rejected by the other women of my home.

Because of an incessant need to make me a pawn in his game, my brother, Ares convinces Eros to make a little bet. A wager that puts my lack of love life to the test. Sent to Earth, I'm skeptical, when suddenly I lose myself in the sensual scent and beauty of the full bodied Vanessa. She is my everything, my perfection.

Sadly, from a single caress upon her silky flesh, I send our lives into a downward spiral of hell. The Touch of the Gods curse. To save her, I must believe that I am not the nobody I was raised to think. And to save me, she will have to decide if I'm worth giving up everything for.

Happy Mother's Day indeed!
Tabby, this is fabulous and I'm so happy to be a part of it.
We mothers need all the help we can get, and for me that comes in the form of books. I love being swept away from my life for a few hours.

Bravo for putting this contest on, Tabby and for all the awesome authors who donated their books.

I already follow your blog--LOL, I'm a blogger here so I sure hope I'm following, hehehehe.

Great looking list on your blog. I am mainly posting because in FaceBook's infinite/infant wisdom labeled the post from which I got the link to this blog as inappropriate. Zuckerman is inappropriate as far as I am concerned.

Thanks to all for the contest regardless of who wins.

Thank you for not limiting to just mothers. I never married. Took care of my parents as they got older. My mother passed away, several years ago, the day after Mother's Day. I still feel weepy even after all this time. My dad is still around and sometimes I think we're in a role reversal. But I wouldn't have changed a thing. They took care of me for so many years - now it's my turn to return the favor.


J said...

All of these books look so good. Thank You to all of the authors who donated their books as well as their time writing them. I signed up for the newsletter and would be so happy if I would win this for Mother's Day. Janette908123 at ymail dot com
