Cover reveal for Unbreaking the Broken by Edi Cruz

"Unbreaking the Broken" (estimated release date: Late August/early September 2013)

Synopsis:

Eva Foster grew up desperate for love. She thought she found it with her boyfriend, but the relationship was a one-way street. She didn’t realize that what she thought was love for Allen Heckler, was truly nothing but fear embedded by him. She dealt with his treatment, until the one night, things changed. She thought she was finally free. But was she?

Colin Caddick, a detective called to a case that went from assault and battery to something more, suddenly had to fight with himself to keep his professionalism separate from his personal feelings. Something from his past kept him from letting go of Eva Foster even long after the case was over.

Eva’s devastation made her feel like she couldn’t love again. She was afraid to. Her heart was broken to smithereens and she just knew that there was no fixing it. Colin, though hurt before, was determined to be the one that will heal her. Can two damaged hearts unbreak each other?

Cover Reveal for Bare Assets by M.L. Stephens




Bare Assets
by M. L. Stephens
Release date: 8-05-2013
Book Blurb

With nothing but shattered dreams and a busted heart to fuel the way, Angela Fletcher drove out of Arkansas and never looked back.
Six years later, the new and improved version of the girl she used to be steered clear of romance, love and late night promises. The only pillow talk Angela engaged in these days, was making sure the person on the other pillow knew to lose her number as soon as he left the bed. She only had room for one love in her life and that was Bare Assets, the gentleman's club she poured her heart and soul into.

Dean Murray was the devil in disguise and had left behind enough broken hearted women to populate a small country. Angela would know. She was an expert markswoman who was skillfully self-trained at shooting down the good, the bad and the ugly of all masculine targets. After all, as the owner of the most successful strip club in Dallas, Texas, it was her business to know men.

Just as she begins to fall for Dean's silky words and passionate ways, her past and present unexpectedly collide and a meticulously planned future turns into unpredictable chaos. Is the smooth talking, denim wearing devil responsible for the chaos? Or have the secrets she left buried in Arkansas, coming back to haunt her?

Phantom, Dark Musicals Book #1

The “Phantom” was a musical phenomenon that Rebecca had always found enchanting. She had no idea that her life was about to mirror the play that was her obsession. When her high school drama club chooses “Phantom” as their annual production, Rebecca finds herself in the middle of an unlikely love triangle and the target of a sadistic stalker who uses the lines from the play as their calling card.

Rebecca lands the lead role of Christine, the opera diva, and like her character, she is torn between her two co-stars—Tom the surfer and basketball star who plays the lovable hero, and Justyn, the strangely appealing Goth who is more than realistic in the role of the tortured artist.

Almost immediately after casting, strange things start to happen both on and off the stage. Curtains fall. Mirrors are shattered. People are hurt in true phantom style. They all seem like accidents until Rebecca receives notes and phone calls that hint at something more sinister. Is Justyn bringing to life the twisted character of the phantom? Or in real life are the roles of the hero and the villain reversed? Rebecca doesn’t know who to trust, but she knows she’s running out of time as she gets closer and closer to opening night. Only when the mask is stripped away, will the twenty first century phantom finally be revealed.



Demon, Book Two in the Dark Musicals Trilogy, inspired by Sweeney Todd is also on sale for $1.99 through 7/29!
Purchase

When Justyn and Rebecca set off for the New York School of Performing Arts, they think their dreams are about to come true. To their dismay, they aren’t in high school anymore, and the competition is steep. Rebecca must compete against accomplished singers for a role in the production of Demon Barber, including a stunning Gothic diva with her sights set on Justym.
It doesn't help that things keep disappearing from their apartment or that Rebecca's father refuses to accept that Justyn is an essential part of her life. Yet, all this seems minimal in comparison to the serial rapist terrorizing the campus
Consumed by fear and obsessed with revenge, Rebecca and Justyn start living the story of Sweeney Todd—both on and off the stage.

Review for Immortal Blood by Magen McMinimy

Oh jeez, what do I say about this book. It was one of those that I had to put down to make sure that I let everything soak in, but at the same time I didn't want to set it down for fear of forgetting what was happening. It's a different take on a paranormal book, one that can easily capture the reader's attention.

Bain is an immortal brother who does what he's told for his missions but doesn't listen to anyone when it comes to his personal life. He uses his good looks to bed any woman that he wants. Never does he allow them more than one night. Until he meets her...

Izzy is strong, independent, and family oriented. She takes her business very seriously but allows herself to have a little fun every once in a while. That one night of fun is what causes her to cross paths with Bain.

After an unfortunate meeting with an immortal of a different kind, Izzy is forced to have to live with Bain until she agrees to go to his home and get her life straightened out. What she isn't counting on is that with her, he's different.

The moments Bain and Izzy spend together bring them closer and closer, until someone steps in and messes it all up. Ultimately Bain is forced to choose between Izzy or someone else that is extremely dear to him. When he chooses the other, his relationship with Izzy falls apart until his sister steps in to help.

Izzy and Bain are amazing together because Izzy never allows him to use his charm against her and she gives him a run for his money when it comes to him being a smart ass. Bain gives Izzy the love that she's seen one of her sisters and her parents get. Both are the perfect match for the other in more ways than they realize at first.

Mangled Hearts Blog Tour




Blurb:

Francesca and Cade
Can two loves find their way back to each other despite an addiction and a hardened heart? Will their love overcome it all?
Francesca Taymon is young, successful, and broken. A tragic accident years ago haunts her to this day, and she blames only one person--the one that holds her heart. When she finally gets her first case, will she be able to handle seeing him again? Can she do her job and keep her heart intact?
Cade Kelling doesn’t take life seriously. He’s reckless and irresponsible, drinking all his problems away.
When his parents bail him out for the last time, will he be able to handle seeing Francesca after all of these years? Will he be able to tell her what really happened that night 5 years ago or will he lose her forever?
And the most important question….
Can these mangled hearts be mended?





Excerpt


I cast my eyes down, letting her tear me a new one. Everything she said was right. I was stupid. My drinking had caused her enough pain, and now I was pulling this. “I’m sorry, Francesca. You’re completely right. I wasn’t thinking. And I’m sorry to bring back thoughts of the accident,” I told her, scraping my chair back to stand. “I think it’s time I head home.”
                She didn’t budge, but called out, “You don’t have to remind me of the accident. I’m haunted by it every single day.”
                I opened the door, and slipped out. I inhaled the fresh air, and closed my eyes. She’d stolen my heart, and in return, I’d ruined her life.
