Book Description:


Rachel Ryan wakes up with no knowledge of where she is or how she got there. Thrown into a world she thought only existed in myths, she finds more questions than answers.


Shape shifters, faeries, and vampires hide in plain sight among humans. There’s a war quietly brewing in the shadows. Rachel stands between mankind and those creatures that live in the darkness.


Enhanced with power she doesn’t understand, she’ll tip the scales, but who is the real enemy?


Excerpt #1

Gates is in the center of the club. I follow behind him curious to see what happens next. I should grab Livia and run. I look up at the loft. People are lined up against the railing watching the display below. My eyes are drawn to one man in particular. From my angle and with the low lighting, I can’t tell much about his features or height. His clothes and hair are dark, he rests one arm on the top rail and holds a pool cue in the other hand. His gaze is a penetrating green and I swear they glow, I have to make myself look away.
“Guns are not appreciated here, sir,” says a young woman behind the bar.
Liquid courage, come to mama! Moving around Gates, I walk over and take a seat in front of her. “Can I get a drink please?” I ask politely.
“What do you think you are doing?” Gates grinds out through clenched teeth. He is standing directly behind me.
“You folks had me locked up playing lab rat. I just want a few minutes of me time before the shit hits the fan.”
Gates doesn’t know what to say to that. Patrons watch me curiously. Let them. I am past the point of caring. The bartender grins at me. She has hair that’s a silvery lavender dancing around her shoulders. Her eyes are a mesmerizing shade of purple. She doesn’t seem real. I am spellbound. Not a shifter, what is she? I have to stop myself from reaching out and touching her.
“What would you like?” She asks me breaking the trance.
Back to reality, in a room full of doom. “What would you recommend for a woman’s last drink on earth?”

Guest Post - Affair in Athens





Title: Affair in Athens
Author: Matina Nicholas
Genre: Literary Fiction
Release Date: April 1, 2013

Blurb:
Fulfilling her mother’s dying wish to discover her roots, Athena Vallas journeys to Greece and finds more than history as she reunites with a part of her family she didn’t know existed. While documenting her grandfather’s heroic role as a Greek Orthodox priest in Plaka, sheltering Jews during the Resistance in WWII, Athena meets Luke, a dangerously charismatic man who sees her as the ideal wife.
Drawn into an extravagant lifestyle, her attraction to Luke is intense until she discovers that he plays a high stakes game of illegal pursuits. When she attempts to distance herself, Luke refuses to relinquish his plans. Ruthlessly, he keeps his eye on the prize—Athena—who won’t compromise love for wealth or fidelity for lifestyle.
Affair in Athens includes a set of authentic Greek recipes at the back of the book, passed down through Matina’s family. Read, eat, and enjoy!

Guest Post & Giveaway - No Refuge by Annie Nicholas

GUEST POST BY ANNIE NICHOLAS
Space Travel
Imagine one day a couple going on their honeymoon, but instead of boarding an airplane to Hawaii they board a space ship to the rings of Saturn.  
This all seems like fantasy for us but there was a time where people used to dream of crossing an ocean just like we dream of crossing the universe. This dream gets closer to being fulfilled ever year. Just this January I came across this article.
Nasa is developing a theory for almost faster than light travel. Woohoo!
I remember as a kid hoping by the time I retire I could go live on the moon. Hey younger generation, you have 25 more years to make this happen before I retire. *wink wink*
The best part of writing science fiction is working with advance technologies that don’t exist yet and playing with the circumstances like what happens inside a space ship when the space station it’s docked to stops spinning?  ;)
