Cover Reveal * Tempest in Disguise * Riley Bancroft


Tempest In Disguise
by Riley Bancroft
Series: Darkest Faerie Tale, #1
Genre: Dark Erotic Urban Fantasy Romance
Cover Designer: Fiona Jayde
Release Date: November 6, 2014




Born the only hybrid between two warring factions, Mya's life is all smoke and mirrors. For twenty four years her true identity has been kept a secret inside the virtuous Seelie Court of the ancient Fae. But that time has come to an end. In one sudden blow, her perception of reality is irrevocably altered and her livelihood is stripped away. A dark and mysterious stranger has set his sights on her to possess, consume and claim her for himself. Mya must keep her wits about her to survive…or surrender to her darkest desires.

As one of the leaders in the infamous Unseelie Court, Cole is determined to seize the powerful and magickal hybrid from the enemy’s court on behalf of his people.  A battle is looming and they’re ready to end the war at any cost, but for Cole it’s personal.  The scar on his face is a daily reminder of the cuts marring his darkened soul and when he goes after the hybrid, a burning need to dominate and master her is far too great. Despite the consequences he faces for touching her, Cole's dark and twisted hunger is unable to resist her allure. He craves her full submission, but in order to do that, he must take everything away from her first.

Dark, Erotic Paranormal Romance with BDSM Elements…


He angled his head lower down until their mouths were only a centimeter away. “Perhaps, you need someone to show you the way—to take control.”

Mya licked her lips and tried to ease the anxious pace of her heart as she inhaled his breaths. Her thoughts made her words come out muddled. “Or, maybe I’m the one controlling you already.”

“You like to play games, Mya?” He taunted her with his lips, so close, yet too far away.

The walls of her core clenched and released, an aching void, wanting to be filled. A sting of pleasurable pain seared her breasts and her shoulders arched when he pinched her rock hard nipple through her clothes. Her thigh muscles almost gave out as need for him ripped through her. “Do you like to play games?” she asked back in raspy voice.

“Have you ever studied psychology, Mya? When a person is nervous or unsure they basically repeat what the other person said.”

Damn it. Was she nervous? She couldn't think straight. Both halves of her warred for dominance. One side wanted him to play with her. The other wanted to out play him. He was a dark temptation for her and her downfall at the same time. To hell with it all, she let her Unseelie side rule the moment. Her hips thrust backward and she ground against his shaft. Arching her back, she titled her head up, moving her mouth closer to his. Contact. Warm, thick lips met hers and an urgent need sparked a greater want inside of her.

As she reached up behind her and twined her fingers in his hair to pull him tighter, he returned the frenzied kiss. His tongue sought hers demanding surrender in her mouth and it fueled her lust with every stroke. Every touch from him, his dominating hold over her, lit her up—like a raging fire in a forest ready to consume every tree in its path.

Mya lost herself with him, just the two of them, two bodies burning in an inferno seeking more. She melted against him and let him take the reins, following each movement of his lips and tongue, unable to get enough of him.

He fisted his hand into her hair and pulled her head back. “Take off your clothes.”

The hell you say. Her thoughts couldn't keep up with her maddening pulse. “What?” Deep down though, she knew their game led up to this defining moment.

“I think you heard me.” He tightened his hold on her. “You wanted to play, you wanted control—well, I want your surrender.” A dangerous hunger danced across his face.

The lustful glint in his eyes left her breathless, even hotter than before. She licked her lips, contemplating the seriousness of what he asked for, the taste of him lingered on her tongue. Would she be able to do, as he demanded?


Riley Bancroft grew up in the heart of Texas. Ever since she was little she favored stories on the darker side, not just supernatural, but psychological as well. She penned her first erotic poems in college about the love of her life. The pursuit of her writing career began when she wrote a short story based on the intimate scene missing in Twilight, to share with her friends. They encouraged her to write her own novel. And so, she did.

Release Date: August 28, 2014



It has been days since Lily killed the vampire responsible for her brutal attack. Now she and Wolf have been summoned by the Society to answer for her actions. Standing before the Regent, she learns she has tipped the human and supernatural scales. A new vampire is required to restore balance.

When she hears the penalty for her crime, Wolf protectively steps in and accepts a dangerous task in exchange for her freedom. He must find the rogue vampire who has been slaughtering citizens in their territory or risk losing Lily to the Society. And he only has days to do it.

As the night of reckoning fast approaches, Lily finds an unlikely advocate in a centuries-old, seductive vampire named Athene who gives her an ominous warning. Athene knows secrets about Wolf she won't divulge, which only complicates the mysterious revelation Lily has recently discovered about herself.

Screams, growls, and cries echo throughout the darkest, desolate streets of the city. The final showdown determines who is predator and who will become prey. One thing remains certain-no one escapes the night unscathed.

Beast is the much anticipated sequel to Predator & Prey by James D Horton.

Beast (Predator & Prey, #2)Beast by James D. Horton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There is a Beast in all of us, but the Vampires are trying to bring theirs into submission by forming a Society and treating the city’s night dwellers like cattle. And, in this dystopian, not to far distant future, a night time radio show host finds herself, oddly, befriended by a long Wolf, of the very creatures she has been warning the city’s night dwellers about.
In this second of his Predator and Prey series, James D Horton again enthralls us with an entirely different take on the vampire vs. human battle.
We find Lily standing trial for murder and receiving a sentence that Wolf tries to refute. He is successful - but Lily is caught in the crossfire. Will he save her or let her die? What will become of Wolf’s Beast?
This is an amazing read, as I turned each page; I was never sure what was going to happen. I alternately cheered Wolf on and cursed his name; I found courage in Lily that belonged in a supernatural being, not a human. Althene, who takes Lily under her wing, is like an avenging angel with an agenda – when will we find out what that agenda is? I am looking forward to the next story in the series – Control.

Control Predator and Prey Book Three by James D Horton


Control
by James D. Horton
Series: Predator & Prey, #3
Genre: Paranormal, Romance, Dark Fantasy
Cover Designer: Miranda Horton
Release Date: October 24, 2014


Two weeks have passed since Lily became a vampire and things couldn't be worse. She is starving, out of control, and Wolf has vanished. Her maker, Athene, is patient, but fails to help Lily tame the beast within. After Lily's introduction to Society goes horribly wrong, she is sent to train with Griogar, a narcissistic vampire with questionable tactics.

A powerful member of Society, John Genosoa, has secretly arranged for Wolf's mate to return. The distraction works. Wolf and Luna's reunion is passionate, yet laced with memories of insurmountable loss. Even so, neither is able to refuse the animalistic magnetism drawing them together.

When Lily reaches a new low during a session with Griogar, Wolf reappears. She's furious, but vulnerable to his charm and follows him beneath the City. Lily finds out Wolf has spent ages chasing a legendary tale of transcendence and discovers who has been keeping him away.

Lily is forced to put aside her heartache when Genosoa's plan threatens the City's inhabitants. Genosoa's magic is strong, but not strong enough to keep the existence of vampires a secret from humans. He needs souls to sacrifice.

Wolf, Lily and Luna are dispatched by the Keeper and must act fast to stop the killing of innocents. Screams of agony and a scene of destruction greet them, but they are confronted with a much more sinister obstacle and it's too late to turn back. What begins as a battle turns into an all-out war for their very survival.

Ancient histories are told, myths are revealed and dangerous paths are taken in Control , the highly anticipated third installment in the Predator & Prey series by author James D. Horton.

Time Without End – Cora’s Bond #2 by VM Black Exclusive Interview with author.

Time Without End – Cora’s Bond #2 by VM Black
This book is number 2 in the second series of novellas featuring Cora Shaw, the cognate (human consort) of agnate (vampire) Dorian Thorne.  Wow! What a read!  This 20 something, victim of leukemia (oh, BTW, I had not read any of the other books in the series, I was given this one in exchange for an honest review, so I went back and grabbed the FIRST book in the FIRST series to get some background) was given the option of dying with dignity in Hospice, or going to see one Dorian Thorne. With nothing to lose, she chose door #2. Fast forward a few months, her treatment for cancer, was supposed to have been an injection of long chain molecules, a hemotoxin, which would create a metabolic changes, reverting the cancer cells to a healthy state.  It instead was Dorian’s vampiric bite, a cure, but also an irreversible bond.  We are now nearly to the eve of their wedding, this, Cora’s second Bond to Dorian. They have fallen in love, Cora is nearly finished with college, has started working at Dorian’s Lab, where they are perfecting the injection for humanitarian purposes and she is beginning to take on responsibilities of the chatelaine of the manor, helping Dorian host various soirées.
Then suddenly, during an outing, something goes horribly wrong!
I cannot wait to read the next installment – AND catch up on what I missed between the first book in the first series and this one!
VM Black is an author to follow.
 

Exclusive late night FaceBook interview with author VM Black of Cora’s Choice and Cora’s Bond Series
RebaWeavesTales:
“Just posted Time without End
VM Black:
“I want to write "this is different, I swear" in the blurb. Lol.
After vampires got popular, a lot of people just retelling the same stories popped up. So lots of readers are very cynical!”
RebaWeavesTales:
“True story. I got tired of vampires. This is a great twist!”
VM Black:
Thanks! Funny thing is that I started this when I was “trad pubbed”. They wanted me to do vampires, and I was like, "It has to be DIFFERENT, and I have to love it!"
RebaWeavesTales:
“What made you go indie?”
VM Black:
“They lost interest because they published any crappy, derivative vampire books that they lost their audience. Plus I was tired of writing for peanuts.”
“With my national bestseller that took 2 years to get published, I ended up with about 60% of a first-year elementary teacher....without the benefits. It ended up being quite a bit less than minimum wage.”
RebaWeavesTales:
“I bet. Corporate just has no idea what is really going on
You are queen of the novella now”
VM Black:
“I'm having a GREAT time. And the writing is SOOOOOO much better. I used to have to fend off the "bright ideas" of editors and marketing.
They have no idea what readers want; especially genre readers.
That's why I don't tell anyone my old name.
RebaWeavesTales:
Of course now I am curious!!
VM Black:
"I'll let everyone know once I get my rights back! Lol
Then I can fix the books; put them out in the right order. That kind of thing."
RebaWeavesTales:
“I've been seeing a lot of that.”
VM Black
“Yep. It's sad.”
