It’s been something that has always intrigued me.
Maybe its because I’ve been alone most of my life.
I was the only one looking out for me, but I guess that’s what happens when you get shipped around different foster homes.
I want more out of my life.
Two has always been my favourite number.
Two men all for me.
Two different hands to touch, tease and caress me.
Two different lips to kiss me.
One has never been enough. Two would satisfy my appetite. It could all just be the wishful thinking, desires of a stupid young woman but then I met someone who holds the key to my every fantasy…
 










Elaine May is my Author name. I live in the South West of England with my two beautiful daughters and yummy hubby. I love reading dark and twisted tales that mess with your head. I love to travel and spending time with my family. My dream is for people to like what I’ve written and hopefully get to go to a book signing event as an author.





Blog Tour/Review: California Love by TK Cherry


Title: California Love
Author: TK Cherry 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 




Can you claim your future while holding onto the past?

Moping over her ex’s updated relationship status, Quen decides a solo road trip is exactly what she needs. Unfortunately, her hunk of junk car has other plans and leaves her stranded on the side of the interstate.

Steaming from a failed business deal, Drew takes a drive in his classic convertible to cool off when fate lands him directly in Quen’s path. A little polite conversation, mixed with a slathering of flirting, and the sexy billionaire offers her a lift.

What follows is an eclectic adventure that will change their lives forever.

The Stay-Hi Café.
An outdoor junk exhibit.
A strawberry festival.
A “cockroach” motel.
Each stop brings them closer together and leaves both wishing the journey didn’t have to end.

As Quen begins to wonder if a future with Drew is possible, real life bursts in to monopolize his time. And the obstacles don’t stop there. Not one, but two men from Quen’s past swoop in, hell-bent on winning her. Can Quen recapture her magic summer by following her heart back to Drew in California? Or will self-doubt convince her that her heart is safer at home?





⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I absolutely loved Quen and Drew’s story! Their chemistry was amazing! A chance meeting has Quen and Drew stopping to smell the roses and sightsee. And realize they can’t stand being apart even though it takes a little bit for them to get it together! I enjoyed this book and definitely recommend reading this!

Blog Tour: Tall, Dark & Furious by R.L. Mathewson



Title: Tall, Dark & Furious 
Author: R.L. Mathewson 
Genre: Paranormal, Romance 
Series: A Pyte/Sentinel Novel #6






From bestselling author R.L. Mathewson comes the sixth installment of the Pyte/Sentinel Series…
For readers who enjoy paranormal romance with a twist.
For three centuries, Trace waited for this moment, imagined all the things that he would do to the Pack that tried to kill him, and now that he was free…
All he could think about was the woman that he’d claimed as his own. She was everything that he’d always wanted and once he had his revenge, he would make her his.
Sam had resigned herself to a lot of things over the years, being the town joke, blacking out at inopportune moments, and living with a dog that hated her, but what she hadn’t planned on was suddenly finding five large men destroying her basement, looking for a tomb that she never knew existed. In one moment, her life changed forever, leaving her to wonder how she was going to make it out of this alive.




“I
really hate you,” Samantha informed the traitor that was following
her as she
 tightened
the towel around herself while she tried to ignore the splitting
headache that was starting to concern her. She quickly made her way
to her bedroom and once she was there, she slammed the door shut in
the little bastard’s face only to bite back a groan when she
realized that she wasn’t alone.

“What’s
this?” the man that had barged into the bathroom a total of fifteen
times to make sure that she was doing as she was told before stealing
her clothes, asked from where he sat on her bed, examining her old
iPod.
“It’s
an iPod,” she said, absently noting that he was now wearing a pair
of Nathan’s old jeans and had probably already searched her
brother’s bedroom.
“What
does it do?” he asked, as she walked over to her dresser, wondering
if he’d found anything that she could use to get out of this.
“It
plays music,” she said as she quickly grabbed some clothes, hoping
to get dressed before-
“And
this?” he asked, drawing her attention back to find him holding-
“Oh,
my god!” she gasped as she dropped the clothes in her arms to
rescue Bob before he realized what it was for, but something, mainly
the way that his eyes suddenly turned red and that growl that she
really shouldn’t find sexy was torn from his throat, told her that
he’d just figured it out.
With
a somewhat hysterical smile, she managed to grab Bob from him and
shove it back in the nightstand drawer with the hopes that there
wouldn’t be any follow up questions, but of course with the way
that her day was going, she really should have expected it.
“What
do you use that for, wife?” he asked, making her wince.
“It’s
umm, a sleep aide?” she said absently, wondering if he’d found-
“And
this?” he asked in that same deep sexy growl that let her know that
yes, yes, he had indeed found her pocket rocket.
The
sound of Bob Jr. turning on only confirmed it. Reminding herself that
she needed to tread lightly here, she turned around, and mumbled, “It
helps with the sleep aide,” noting the way that his red eyes
narrowed on her before she quickly turned around as she shut it off
and shoved it in the drawer with Bob. Once that was done, she turned
around and-
“What’s
a call?” he suddenly demanded as he picked up a large black duffle
bag that she hadn’t noticed before and dropped it on her bed.
“A
call?” she repeated back slowly as she did her best to keep her
gaze from wandering towards the cellphone on her nightstand.  
“I
need a call,” he said firmly as those terrifying red eyes locked on
her.


Q & A
  1. What is a Pyte?
A Pyte is a true immortal. He
is the product of a vampire and a human woman. Pytes can also have
children of their own day. They’re born as weak as a human baby,
but the difference is that they need to consume blood as well food in
order to thrive. If they don’t, they’re left weaker, will grow
slower to the point that they’ll appear to be younger than they
are.
If they survive to their
sixteenth birthday, they will go into a coma where they’ll go
through their transformation, becoming everything that they were
meant to become and once they’re done, they’re immortal and
nothing will be able to kill them. They’ll appear human but have
all the strengths of a vampire with none of the weaknesses. They can
go in the sun, withstand holy relics, and have the ability to create
another Pyte.
Once they’ve created another
Pyte, they’ll be able to create a stronger breed of vampire, which
is why Masters, shifters, and Sentinels all over the world are
desperate to get their hands on them. Masters want them to create a
stronger army of vampires for them while shifters and Sentinels are
willing to do anything to stop them.
Their immortality should make
them unstoppable, but it’s their one true weakness.
  1. It’s been four years
    since Fated was published, what happened?
Life.
Life happened, unfortunately.
In 2015 and 2016, we were dealing with a lot of stuff, a lot of
changes, and thankfully, we were finally able to move. It was a very
necessary move for our safety, so a lot of things were put on hold
for a while. I focused on taking care of the kids, getting them
settled, finally getting my son’s autism diagnosis, which has
actually been a big relief finally getting answers. I did my best to
keep working, I focused on contemporaries since they were the easiest
to write.
When I write paranormal
novels, I like to take my time, make sure the details are correct,
develop the characters a little more so that they are able to make
the world that I’m trying to create more believable. Basically, I
stress over every detail.
I never planned on letting
this much time go by between the books. I actually hadn’t realized
it had until this past year when readers started to ask about the
books. It’s the same for the Cursed Heart series. The books were
supposed to be out a lot sooner than this. My goal for 2020 is to
catch up with the books and get most of the series caught up.
  1. Who is Trace? We haven’t
    heard about him in the series before. Is he a new series?
Trace
is new to the series. His father is Ethan, who you met very briefly
in Tall, Dark & Heartless. He is the vampire that Caine contacted
to get information about Pytes so that he could help his mate. Trace
is his son that went missing centuries ago and has never stopped
looking for. 
Trace
is a Pyte and brand new to the series as is his mate. With that being
said, Kale plays a very important part in this book and you will get
to see the others as well. Jill and Joshua are in this book as well.
You will get more information in this book, more answers and a better
sense of where the series is heading. 
  1. Who
    will be next in the series?
Kale’s
book will be next. His book is titled
Unstoppable.
His mate will be the key to the series. I have a lot of plans for
that couple. It’s actually already started and I am looking forward
to getting back to it. I am hoping for a Halloween release, but I
don’t want to jinx myself. At this point, I’m just keeping my
fingers crossed and hoping for the best.
  1. Will
    Jill and Joshua ever get their own books?
Yes,
but it won’t be anytime soon. Joshua plays a crucial part in this
series so I need him to do a few things before we can redeem him. As
for Jill, her character has a few more trials to go through before
her story will be ready to be told.

  1. There’s
    a rumor going around that there will be a YA series for the Pytes.
    Is that true?
Yes,
there is a Pyte YA series in the works. I have been playing with the
idea for the past few years and trying to narrow it done to what I
want. I’ve been debating a few things and I’m almost ready to
start. I will say this, Marc will not be in this series only because
he will not have his mate until he’s well into his adulthood. The
one thing that I’m truly debating about the YA series is whether it
will be focused on one couple or a new couple for every book. I’ll
know more about where the series is heading once the first book is
done.
  1. What
    makes your Pyte/Sentinel series different than the rest?
Well,
for one, the concept of a Pyte is my creation, something that I’ve
been toying with since I was a kid. There are a lot of vampire
romance novels out there, with different takes on what a vampire is,
how they’re created, their weaknesses, etc. and they’re great,
but the Pyte/Sentinel series does it a little bit differently. I’ve
tried to create a world that could easily blend in with ours with
humans completely oblivious to the real world around them.

I’ve
created this world so that even readers who don’t normally like
paranormal romance enjoy these books because I try my best to make
the characters relatable. The Pyte/Sentinel world is not overwhelming
with paranormal aspects filling every page. The books ease readers
into the story and allow them to keep up without having to remember
all the different rules or concepts that make up this world.

Series Tour: Ascenders Books 1-4 By C.L. Gaber

ASCENDERS SAGA 
AUTHOR: C. L. GABER 
GENRE: FANTASY ROMANCE 


Add on Goodreads 


ASCENDERS: HIGH SCHOOL FOR THE RECENTLY DEPARTED (BOOK ONE) On an icy road in suburban, Illinois, 17-year-old Walker Callaghan and her mother, Madeline drive home in a freakishly early September snowstorm. A lone deer wanders into the middle of the road causing a collision of fates. 

Walker dies, but she doesn’t go to heaven or hell. She lands in a small white Craftsman house on a suburban street in a middle zone where teenagers have one thing in common: They were the morning announcement at their high school because they died young. 

These high school kids are now caught in a strange in-between zone where existence hasn’t changed very much. This special teen limbo looks a lot like life in a quaint Michigan town complete with jocks, popular girls and cliques. “Damn, there are even cheerleaders in death,” Walker observes. 

Walker will now attend a swanky, private school called The Academy to keep learning because the human mind doesn’t fully form until you’re 24-years-old. She is told there will be no homework, no tests, no SATS, and no college applications. She’s just here to learn and stay healthy including playing a sport. Her “air hockey” is at a special stadium where you play real hockey while you levitate 12 feet in the air. There are perks to an afterlife education. 


It’s not a coincidence that the music teacher is a shaggy haired guy named Kurt who “used to have this band.” The drama teacher, Heath, is crush worthy because back in life he starred in some cape and tights movie. Jerry is the hall monitor, but you never need a pass. Robin is a mime in the park while Paul shuns cars and is the coach of the biking team. 


Principal King explains the rules – there are (almost) none. Why? You can’t die twice, although Walker tests it by remaining underwater in the river with no oxygen for 15 minutes and by hurling her body off a waterfall. A reset means there will never be pain again. Falling in love, however, is the only dangerous thing you can do…because no one knows how long you’ll stay in this realm or what’s next. 


A rule breaker since birth, Walker falls hard for tat-covered, bad boy Daniel Reid who is about to break the only law of this place. You’re not allowed to think about, plan or plot to go back to the Living Realm to check on your former life. 
Daniel doesn’t care. Armed with medieval weapons made in shop class, he just needs an hour back to life to retrieve his six-year-old brother Bobby who strangely never ascended with the rest of the family after a plane crash. Bobby is what’s known as an earth bound spirit, stuck at the site of a violent death. 


Walker loves Daniel and risks it all to go back with him. She even goes with him on a visit to the prison school in the realm called ITT (The Institute for Troubled Teens), a monstrous steel structure hanging off a mountain, where teenage dead felons are housed in glass cages that look like building blocks. A 14-year-old on D Block  named A.E. — the only boy to ever go back — helps them find the portal back to life. Yet, there is danger in th form of a former clown/serial killer named John G., a janitor at ITT, who sleeps and waits for his next victims. He eats them. 

Back in the Living Realm, have Walker and Daniel learned enough to outsmart demons that want them extinguished? Can their love survive the fragmented evil parts of themselves that are now hunting them down as they try to find their way back to the Middle? 


And one last question: When did Walker become so badass with her weapon of choice, a ninja-style throwing star? 


Ascenders: It’s an adventure of an after-lifetime. 





ASCENDERS: SKYPUNCH (BOOK TWO) 

In the Midst—a place for those who die young—there are no rules except one. 

And Walker Callaghan, dead at seventeen, just broke it. She briefly revisited her earthly life . . . and the punishment is devastating. 

Longing for her rebel love interest, Daniel Reid, Walker finds an ally in Cass, whose attraction to her is as alive as he is. “Life is short,” he tells her. “I’m banking on eternity. With you.”

In the second book of the Ascenders Saga, a proposed realm-jumping journey will take Walker and Daniel back to life again to search for something buried in history. They team with students from several other schools in the middle realm including a place for teens born with oddities. It’s home to the Claires . . . beautiful, ruthless, and quite dead seventeen-year-old quads who each have a different clairvoyant gift.

Can Walker survive another adventure of an afterlife-time—or will she find herself on the downside of eternity?






ASCENDERS: OMORROW (BOOK THREE) Expired at seventeen and living in a middle world for those who died young, Walker Callaghan and her rebellious love, Daniel Reid, have been tasked with an insurmountable mission: Find something hidden in the past that will forever change everything for the living and the dead.

Sent to a place where a second can mean a lifetime, Walker and Daniel find their existence threatened as they scour New York City decades to find the lost, secret writings of Albert Einstein. They are warned, “Die in the past and you will never be born in the future.”

History has a way of being rewritten by those who defy the odds. In the third book of the Ascenders Saga, will Walker manage to survive or delete her own story?

ASCENDERS: 11:11 (BOOK FOUR) 

In the Midst — a place for those who departed young — there is a fate worse than death. It’s the passing of true love. Tat-covered Daniel Reid’s memory has been erased by his sadistic father. Walker Callaghan must face her destiny alone. 

Alliances shift in the fourth book of the Ascenders Saga. Only twice a day at 11:11 — a time when all things converge — is everyone and everything clear. 

Forced to run to The Other Side, Walker and Daniel discover the afterlife world they previously knew was only the beginning of the vastness. In a new realm of illusion and deception, there are no rules except one: Rock bottom builds heroes.
