Blitz: WHAT THE HEART SEEKS by Kelli McCracken

WHAT THE HEART SEEKS
By Kelli McCracken





Blurb:


A love scorned.
A heart enraged.
A soul shattered.


Dylan McBride never knew pain until he lost Heaven. As if her betrayal didn't break his heart, his involvement in her death sends him spiraling into a web of darkness. Though his new abilities make him a threat to his father, they are also unpredictable. Killing his dad will be simple. Killing Layne won't.


Layne Perry's soul is shattered, along with his heart. After discovering the truth about the Affinity, he was ready to claim what was his—Heaven's heart and soul. Witnessing her death destroyed him. It's his duty to her daughter that keeps him alive, as does the promise he made to Heaven. He'll risk his life to protect his Seeker's child—from The Fallen, darkness, and even her father.


When Adalyn shows Layne a future he knows is impossible, he resumes his search for Heaven. Yet, chaos prevails. A traumatizing secret is revealed, complicating Layne's life more than ever. He must form an alliance with other Psi and make amends with Dylan, the one person that hates him. The battle between them is far from over, bringing Layne to one conclusion. Those who fight hardest have nothing left to lose.


What the Heart Seeks is a paranormal romance full of suspense, soulmates, and supernatural twists. If you like vibrant worlds, mystical characters, and heart-pounding romance, you'll enjoy this epic tale of love, light, and darkness.

Snippet #1


Thunder vibrated the ground.
A surge of heat shot through Dylan. Arcs of light sizzled between his fingers. He was ready to cast it on his father again. It was time to finish this.
Once his father relinquished his assault, Layne snuffed out the flame. The two of them paced the crater, glaring at the other. “This won’t end well for you, boy. You’ve exhausted a lot of energy in the last day. Or maybe this is intentional. Are you ready to meet your Seeker so soon? Is death that desirable?”
Layne’s steps stalled. His body went rigid, his hands clenched into fists. “If I die, so be it. I won’t be doing it alone, Nate. I promise you this much. You’ll combust into charred dust before I take my last breath.”




Snippet #2


Layne gripped the door frame and stared at his Seeker’s father as he stood on the steps. He arched a brow in Layne’s direction, waiting for him to finish. “You said that Adalyn showed me the future, mine and Heaven’s future. What about Dylan?”
Nicholas glanced at his granddaughter once more then looked away. The grim thrum of his emotions hinted to his uncertainty, as much as it did his fear. “I don’t know, Layne. Adalyn didn’t show us her father’s future.”
Though Layne didn’t like it, Dylan’s life tied to theirs. Still, there was no sign of him in the scenes Adalyn revealed. Regardless of what happened between him and Heaven, he wouldn’t abandon his child.
The question would remain unanswered for now. They still had to find Heaven. Depending on her condition, she would need time to recuperate. Who knew how long it would take before they discussed everything else. But if the future Adalyn showed him held happiness for him and Heaven, it left Dylan with three options.
Find peace.
Turn dark.
Cease to exist.




Snippet #3


“Is your daughter a Keeper?” A surge of energy tingled his skin when Captain Laveaux nodded. “Is she my Keeper?”
“Yes, Dylan, which is why I’m going to be on you like flies on shit. I know what your bond entails. Don’t hurt my little girl.”
“Trust me, I don’t want anything to do with this. The only person I’ve ever loved broke my heart. There isn’t room for anyone else.”
“Precisely.” Captain Laveaux studied him with a narrow gaze. Then he turned to the window again. “Which is why I said what I did.”




Bio:


Most days you’ll find Kelli McCracken knee deep in chocolate bars, coffee, and kooky characters. She is a connoisseur of chocolate, professional percolator, and a master in the art of procrastination.


“Writing a novel is like running a three-ring circus. It’s chaotic, characters don’t do what’s expected, and they leave you with a trail of sh*t to clean. I’m the ringmaster of insanity. Welcome to the show.”


When she isn’t chasing kids, working on crafts, or sneaking a Kit Kat (or two), Kelli spends her time writing.  Of course, it can’t be all work and no play. Once procrastination strikes,  you can find her hanging out on Facebook, Pinterest, or Spotify. Be sure to stop by and say hi. She loves chatting with readers.

Cover Reveal: EFF THIS DIET by Krissy V.

EFF THIS DIET
by Krissy V.





BLURB:
“Big girl you are beautiful”


It feels like Mika is singing about me when I hear his song, except I’m not beautiful … I’m just fat!


When someone asks you to describe yourself, I bet you say, ‘blonde, brunette, tall, short.’ I just say fat.


You can picture me now: blonde, medium height, and fat. I didn’t want to be fat, no one ever does, but I am, and I have to either live with it or do something about it.


Believe me, I have tried to do something about it. I think I’ve spent enough money at ‘Fat Club’ over the last few years that I could have paid for liposuction AND a couple of tummy tucks.


So, enough about me. This is my story, and I hope you enjoy it.

I know we’re friends, but come on, when you see someone that gorgeous in barely any clothes, you’re going to think about how he is under the engine, if you know what I mean. He gets my engine started all the time.




#2.
So, it has been a VERY long time since my lady garden saw some action. You all know about Charlotte’s web, well I’ve got Kayleigh’s web!





AUTHOR BIO:
I hated English at school! Really hated it! I gave up on English Literature in fourth year because I hated writing stories; couldn’t make them up to save my life. I hated writing precis and I was horrendous at grammar. Having lived in Norway when I was younger, English was my second language.
When I received my iPad six years ago I started reading on the kindle app and wrote to an author about how much I enjoyed her book. That opened up the whole facebook author world to me. I started reviewing books (ironic, right?)  and then started beta reading (even more ironic) after pointing out some big mistakes in a book plot I was reviewing before release.
I realised I had a story in me, yeah I know everyone says that, but I really believed I did. Fourteen books later …. Welcome to the world of Krissy V!

Blitz: The Show Me Series Boxed Set: Volume 1 (Books 1-3) by Anne Stone

The Show Me Series Boxed Set
Volume 1 (Books 1-3)
by Anne Stone



BLURBS:
Book 1: Life’s Second Chances:
Angelina Samuels has lost the only job she’s ever held. A last minute interview lands her a new teaching job just days before the school year is about to begin. It turns out to be the best thing that could have happened when she realizes that her best friend from college, Gabriella Alvarez, is also a member of the teaching staff.
Gabriella’s brother, Alejandro, relocates to his hometown after having lived away from family and friends since he left for college to become a renowned transplant surgeon. He’s settling into a new job, reacquainting himself with family and friends, and is learning to deal ever-so-slowly with the personal loss that forever changed his life.
When Angelina’s sister experiences a health crisis, Alejandro is there to support her and her family. And when Angelina herself experiences a personal tragedy, Alejandro is the only one to guide her through it. As love stares down at them, can Angelina help Alejandro take that second chance on love and marriage?


Book 2: Life’s Gateway to Happiness:
Kelly Samuels is dedicated to her career and has received several promotions in her short tenure at Lattice Works. Kelly’s family is shocked when she returns home unemployed and without an explanation.
Alec Alvarez, a pediatrician from a family full of doctors, is focused solely on his career. He’s declared his bachelor status for life and has no desire for love, marriage, or babies. When Alec finds Kelly stuck on the side of a snowy road, neither of them are prepared for the feelings they begin to have for one another.
As Kelly and Alec grow closer, he wants to know why the once happy-go-lucky Kelly is hesitant to his touch, while Kelly just wants to find purpose to her life again. After Kelly tells two conflicting stories as to why she lost her job, Alec steps in to discover what truly happened. Can Kelly come to terms with what happened to her and move on with her life? And can Alec love enough to give-up his bachelorhood status for good?


Book 3: Life’s Turned Upside Down:
Gabriella Alvarez is the youngest of the Alvarez family. She’s watched her best friend marry her brother and another brother find love. Deep down, she’s looking for love, but she can’t quite shake the college sweetheart that broke her heart.
Dr. Ashton Holder works for the famous Alvarez practice. He and Gabriella have always clashed—she continues to see him only has the rough-edged doctor with no bedside manner, but he’s really made strides to put this image behind him.
When Gabriella discovers a secret from Ashton’s past, though, she does her best to help him uncover something that will change his life forever, but a misunderstanding between them rocks him to the core. When he finally uncovers the secret, he must learn to put his past aside and try and move on with a future willed with hope and dreams.

From Life’s Second Chances:
“You are my life, Angelina.  I will do everything and anything to make you happy.  Always remember that…”
“…Your pain is my pain.  Your happiness is my happiness.  Your dreams are mine.  Together we will make it through whatever obstacles are presented to us because I know our love can survive.”



From Life’s Gateway to Happiness:
“Right before she fell asleep, she remembered Ken’s sickening laugh and threats made concerning her job.  She could feel his hot, foul breath on her face.  She could feel him trapping her against the desk.  And then, her world went dark.”
“She’s gotten under your skin, Alec.  I think you’re falling for her…Yes, you are.  You’re feeling the same sense of guilt and protectiveness I felt for Angelina.  I hope that you can recognize it earlier than I did…I almost lost her, and I’ll always regret the time we lost before we found ourselves again.”





Life’s Turned Upside Down:
“I heard what you said earlier that you haven’t felt this with anyone ever and that you want to be with me…I miss you when you’re not around, too…You’re always on my mind but then there are days when I tell myself that I can’t feel this way.  I can’t allow myself to throw all the cards down on you…”
“Gabby, you know I have very few childhood memories.  This year for once, I was making ones that I knew would stay with me until the day I die.  And you were behind it.  I can still see your eyes when we drove up to your house, and you saw the outside lights for the first time.  I clearly remember watching you as you wrapped each present, measuring incorrectly and throwing the paper aside…”

SNIPPETS:


Snippet #1
I wake with a start. Something’s not right. When I open my eyes, I know immediately what it is.
Lucas is propped up with his back against the headboard and he’s looking down at me with an amused expression. I blink a couple of times, thinking I’m seeing things, but then the memories of last night slam into me.
Oh holy cow, I slept with my boss and he’s still in my bed. Naked. Crap.
“Good morning, beautiful.”
“Oh my God,” I whisper before diving under the covers. I can’t believe I’ve done this. I should never be allowed to drink wine ever again. I’m naked, in bed, with my boss. I mean, could I screw this whole situation up any more? I was just meant to be cleaning his room, and now look. I was more than happy when I thought he was a smooth-talking businessman, but now I’ve seen that’s only one side of him. Last night, he was anything but. I’m in trouble. Serious trouble.



Snippet #2
I’m just pouring the milk in when I hear the door click shut. I look around the corner to see Lucas walking in, looking a little like the morning after we first slept together. I swear my girly parts do a little dance at the sight of him.
He just unzips his hoodie before he looks up and spots me. His eyes shine with what I hope is excitement as they run down my body, which is covered in his perfect white shirt.
I do the exact same thing as I run my eyes over every inch of the sexy bad boy in front of me. He’s wearing a pair of low slung jogging bottoms with the waistband of his boxers showing. His black hoodie is undone, showing off the glistening sculpted perfection underneath. He has his hood up, making him look like the bad boy you should never talk to, let alone get close to.
I watch, amazed, as he reaches up and knocks the hood off his head. He runs his hands through his hair, making it stick out in all directions.
“Enjoying yourself?” he asks with a smirk.
“Guys in suits with perfect hair aren’t really my thing. This though,” I say as I start walking towards him. “This is spot on.” I run my hands up his chest and over his shoulders, giving his hoodie the push it needs to fall down his arms.
I squeal in surprise when I’m suddenly thrown over his shoulder.
“Lucas, what are you doing?” I shout as he walks us to the bathroom and straight to the walk-in shower. He doesn’t answer, just turns its on, and we are both blasted with ice cold water.
“Lucas,” I squeal again as I wriggle in his tight hold to try to get away. I have no hope though; he’s too strong.
“What? Didn’t you want a shower?” he asks with an amused glint in his eye.
This is the Lucas I like: the rough-looking, demanding, slightly arrogant bad boy. Who needs a guy in a suit when you can have one of these?



Snippet #3
As I walk around to the driver’s side, I can’t help being unsure of whether I’m pleased or not that people fall for this act. But then, I guess I’ve played the part for so long now it’s almost normal. The suits, the money, the flashy cars. Lilly might have the impression I’m something impressive, but under all this, I’m far from the person she thinks I am. I know she’s thinking that she’s not good enough for all this, but if she only knew the truth: that she is the one that is way too good for me.
