Blog tour for Incomplete by Lindy Zart

Book Info-
By- Lindy Zart
Expected Publication Date-September 6th

There are three absolute truths in Grayson Lee’s life:
1. His existence was a mistake.
2. No one is good enough for his best friend, Lily Jacobs, especially not him.
3. He loves her anyway.




“So you’re suddenly talking to me?” Her face scrunches up.
“You tell me to leave you alone—“ Lily takes a step toward me.
“I didn’t—“
“You tell me I disgust you—“ She is almost to me now.
“Say that. I—“
“You want absolutely nothing to do with me for weeks, but now you’re blocking the exit? What are you—“
“Just need to talk to you. It’s not—“
“What you think. Or maybe it is…” I trail off, the silence between us profound, awkward.
Lily shoves me hard. My legs get tangled up in the cart and I land on my ass on the cold linoleum.
“I guess I deserved that.”


“What are we doing here?” Lily asks as I shut and lock the door behind us, laughing when I wiggle my eyebrows at her. Her eyes narrow. “What deviant things do you have planned?”
“What deviant things do you want me to have planned?” I flip a set of light switches and the bar is partially lit up.
She shrugs. “You brought me to your favorite place. What do you intend to do with me?”
“Don’t you know by now?” I slowly make my way to her, my eyes trailing up the length of her black shorts and purple tank top and fixating on her eyes.
“Know what?” Lily swallows, fidgeting as I advance.
You, Lily Jacobs, are my favorite place.”
Lily starts to reply as I grab her around the waist and spin her around, loving the sound of the giggle she lets out, loving the way she feels in my arms, just loving her. Around and around we go, until I’m dizzy, until I try to stop and stumble instead. Lily squeals, clutching my arms when I sway on my feet. I stop us with my back against the edge of the counter of the bar, each of us catching our breath.
“Grayson, we’re in a bar.”
“What are we doing here?”
I look around said bar, my eyes lingering on the jukebox in the far corner of the room. “We’re going to play music.”
“Music. Got it.”
A grin captures my mouth. “And we’re going to dance.”
Lily nods her head. “Dancing. Check.”
“And maybe even sing.”
“I am not singing, Grayson!”
“Aw, come on. It’ll be fun. We can sing a duet, Sonny and Cher or something.”
Something that sounds strangely like a curse is muttered by Lily and my grin deepens as I start the jukebox. ‘Here’s To Never Growing Up’ by Avril Lavigne slams through the room, causing Lily to jump.
“Did you even ask your bosses if this was okay? Are we going to be arrested?” she shouts, cupping her mouth with her hands.
An eye roll is the only acknowledgement her words get. I walk into the open room used for EY, stop in the middle of the room, and motion to her. “Come on. Don’t be shy.”
Her arms uncross and she does an eye roll especially for me, but Lily is smiling. She sporadically shakes her hips as she makes her way to me, dipping backward at one point and making my mouth go dry. She defied the laws of gravity with that move. My girlfriend is awesome.
“Okay, Grayson. You asked for it. Just remember that,” she says as she tugs the ponytail holder from her hair and shakes out the black waves. Lily messes up her hair, purses her lips, and starts jumping up and down in a circle, completely shameless as she jams out to Avril. I watch her, mesmerized and astounded, and so completely turned on it is embarrassing.
She grabs my hands, pulling me along with her. We move together, ours hips bumping, our fingers entwining and releasing, laughing as we give in to the pull of the beat. ‘Cecilia’ by Simon and Garfunkel plays after that. I sing along, bouncing to the music, Lily grinning widely as she dances with me. Endless minutes pass with us in the throes of sound and being carefree. This moment, right now, is one I will cherish for all time. Even as I am living it, I understand the significance of this span of time. We are free, laughing, and in love.   


Aidan hesitates, hovering over my shoulder. “Grayson?”
“Why did you and Lily break up?”
I shut the laptop and get to my feet, causing Aidan to backpedal. Pain usually slashes through me at the sound of her name and this time is no different.
Glasses back on my face and straightened once, twice, three times, I finally meet my brother’s eyes. “Because she wanted me to do something for myself, regardless of what I wanted. She was unselfish.”
A frown fits to his mouth. “Isn’t that a good thing?”
“Not when the end result is my heart being ripped out, Aidan, no. I wanted her to be selfish, to want me more than anything. Only she didn’t. She wanted to do the right thing. You know what happens to people that do the right thing, Aidan?”
He stares at me, not speaking, maybe not even understanding the semi-rant I’m on. “What?” Aidan finally asks.
“They aren’t happy. And the person they’re doing the right thing for…they aren’t happy either.”
“So I should do the wrong thing all the time?”
I toss my hands in the air. “Why not?”
Eyes rolling, I sigh with exasperation. “Not okay. Don’t listen to me. Ever. You should know that by now.”
“Okay.” Aidan slowly nods.

Review for Ensanguined by Emma L. Edwards


Oh my gosh! I have loved Emma Edwards since I first read Sanguinary but this story tore me apart! She has a knack for doing that and it is amazing but at the same time it hurts! I've gotten so invested in Ash and Angel's story that each time something bad happens to them, I feel my stomach drop and my heart break. Then, when things are good, I feel my stomach tangle into knots because I know that something is going to happen to drop that happiness out from under them. Emma Edwards is amazing at writing vampires stories.

Angel and Ash haven't changed from Sanguined or Imbrued. Ash still has anger problems that drive him to the brink of insanity and Angel copes with her stress by drinking to the point she is too drunk to even know her own name. But, they're still together and that's how they plan on staying. At least they hope.

It's Angel and Ash's wedding day! Everything is perfect...for the most part. The only thing that is wrong is that Angel's dad still hates Ash and Ash's dad still refuses to acknowledge that he's even alive. Aside from that, it's the best day of either of their lives. Ash's anger is held at bay no matter what he's put through. But when Angel finds a stake, she loses it.

After being convinced that she shouldn't tell Ash, she goes about the rest of her night and her honeymoon with ease. But when their peaceful getaway is interrupted, Ash loses it because Angel has kept the secret from him. When they get home, they tell the rest of the family that they're dealing with what appears to be another slayer and decide to do what they can to keep the house safe.

Erebis is going big and Angel has been supporting them the entire way. Even if Jay and Kieran are both hitting on her and wanting her to be theirs. Angel tours with them until she starts getting sick. When she can't take it anymore, she goes home in hopes of resting up and getting back to the tour with the band.

As things spiral out of control. People who are meant to be trusted turn out to be people that can't be trusted. Also, things don't always appear as they should. It's the old saying "don't judge a book by it's cover." Just because all the evidence points in one direction doesn't mean that it goes the opposite way.

Ash and Angel continue to have their back and forths and Angel finds that Ash's need to possess her and be possessive of her grate her nerves because she wants to be possessive of him as well. No matter what though, they manage to find their way through it all and stay together, even if it looks as if they shouldn't.

Ash's anger is legendary and in this it spirals to new proportions. It's amazing how much anger Ash holds not only at himself, but at the world. But, it's not because he's angry, it's because he's scared.

All I have to say is that Emma Edwards gave Ash and Angel the perfect ending and while I'm deeply saddened to see this series end, I know that I'll always remember Ash's and Angel's story and be able to go back and re-read it so that I can experience it all over again.

Cover Reveal for A Witch's Curse by M.L. Stephens

Release date 10/10

Hecate didn't dabble in dark magic. Watching her lover die at the end of another man's sword changed that. In a single act of vengeance, she turned her lover's killer into a werewolf and cursed him for eternity. It was A Witch's Curse to rival all others and it was her last act as a goddess.

Drago despised being a werewolf. He spent thousands of years searching for an antidote, only to discover that the witch who cursed him, also had to cure him. Unfortunately, that witch died lifetimes ago. Undeterred, he continued to search. Two years ago he found Hecate's remains lying in a crypt hidden deep within the Louisiana Bayou. Today, he watched a coven of witches bring her back to life.

He killed her lover. She damned him for all time. Can two souls who are destined to be eternal enemies, learn to forgive enough to live again?

Review for Closure by Kim Carmichael


A thrilling tale of heartache and love.

Margaret Collins has been marked by Mike Taylor in a way that only the one person you truly love can do to you.

After having her heart broken by him, she decides to leave their town and reinvent herself into someone who hasn't had their heart broken. Everything changes from her looks to her job, and where she lives.

For her first assignment Riley Williams (Margaret) must interview the man who broke her heart all those years ago. All the different emotions that she felt then and is feeling now boil up and leave her with two questions.

Should she get revenge on him?

Or should she let the past stay in the past and live with the man who she's deeply in love with?

Can Riley forgive Mike and just look forward the what the future can hold? Or will she let her past continue to haunt her and keep her from being truly happy?

Kim Carmichael does a great job at showing the emotions that Riley goes through when she meets Mike again. The characters are fully developed and it keeps the reader wanting to read what is going to happen next.

Review for Sinful by Mila Elizabeth Brenton


This book was HOT. I couldn't put it down once I started reading it. Every turn of the page kept me begging for more. Having this as a first book definitely should put Mila Elizabeth Brenton towards the top of their "Authors they must watch" list. I can't wait to see what else she comes out with.

Avery is a romance author. She pours her heart and soul into her writing, but that's not all her life is. Every night she finds herself talking to the same guy. She knows her feelings for him, but also knows she can't act upon them. One reason being that she thinks she'll never meet him.

Jace spends his entire life in the written word. He turns books into movies and loves doing it. But, when his life starts to fall apart, he finds that it no longer brings him joy. Instead the highlight of his day is talking to her.

When the two finally meet, the flames only grow and become even hotter than it was for them just talking through the computer. Without any regrets, Avery and Jace find what they were looking for in each other, and it's not just the hot sex.

This erotic novelette is just that. Erotic. It contains mature content and is definitely only intended for those who are 18 and older.

Excerpt #1

There was a deer to my left, simply watching me. She was beautiful and majestic. She came towards me the moment I wished I could pet her. My hand slowly reached out and touched her course coat. Huge brown eyes looked into mine. There was no fear.
“You’re lovely,” I whispered.
“So are you,” a deep voice said from behind me.
I turned violently, scaring the deer off into the trees. Mr. Sexy was standing five feet in front of me. Jeans and a fitted white t-shirt clothed his fit body.
“You’re here.”
“Of course I am, where else would I be?”
“I thought…well, I wasn’t sure if this was our dream or just mine.”
“It’s ours Livvie. It’s ours. Always ours.”
Excerpt #2
She calmed a bit. She seemed to sense I was near. Then…she whispered, “Mr. Sexy? Are you here?”
My heart almost stopped. How….there was no way she would be able to detect my presence. She was human and humans couldn’t observe us.
“I may be crazy and just talking to myself, but I feel like you just touched my face.”
My heart did stop this time. I slowly reached out and touched her face again, my thumb tracing circles around her chin. She gasped and reached her hand to mine. She was touching her face, but at the same time I could feel her.

Excerpt #1

Groaning, I took her face in my hands, despite her resistance. I leveled our eyes, staring deeply into her lively green irises. “Love, I’m sorry. I’m jealous because of the way he looks at you. I don’t like it.”
           Her face softened. Sighing, she placed her hands on mine. Her delicate fingers clenched around my palms, causing a tightening of desire in my stomach. Hot air exhaled out my nostrils as I tried to control my urges. My eyes roamed to her lips. Full and soft looking, I wanted to take them into my own and devour her right then and there.
           “Scott, look at me.”
           “I am,” I said hungrily. I licked my lips in anticipation. She bit hers in response and I groaned, moving closer to claim her.

Excerpt #2

“Crap. Mom is gonna be so pissed,” she muttered, her hand squeezing her temple.
           Leaning down, I placed my hand on the tree, allowing my fingers to trail over the splintered wood. There was a dent where the bark had broken off. A very noticeable dent. I caressed the tree, mumbling how sorry I was to it when I heard J behind me, “Ummm….”
            I turned quickly, wondering what in the heck had happened now.  “What is it, J?”
           “The tree…it’s…it’s growing back where you touch it, Liv,” she said, astonished.
           “What?” I gave her a look that clearly showed how crazy I thought she was, but then, I looked back at the pine. Peering closer, I could see the dent wasn’t as large. My shaking hand lovingly rested on the top of the dent. I closed my eyes and thought only of restoring the tree back to its full self. I felt energy running through my body, a tingly sensation that warmed me to my core. Heat radiated out my palm, pouring life back into the tree. I don’t know how I knew when it was whole, but I did. It was like the energy sensed it and just stopped. I drew my hand back, feeling a little weak.
