MIND GAMES by Heather W. Petty Nerd Blast and Giveaway




Synopsis 

Sherlock Holmes and Miss James “Mori” Moriarty may have closed their first case, but the mystery is far from over in the thrilling sequel to Lock & Mori, perfect for fans of Maureen Johnson and Sherlock.

You know their names. Now discover their beginnings. 

Mori’s abusive father is behind bars…and she has never felt less safe. Threatening letters have started appearing on her doorstep, and the police are receiving anonymous tips suggesting that Mori—not her father—is the Regent’s Park killer. To make matters worse, the police are beginning to believe them.

Through it all, Lock—frustrating, brilliant, gorgeous Lock—is by her side. The two of them set out to discover who is framing Mori, but in a city full of suspects, the task is easier said than done. With the clock ticking, Mori will discover just how far she is willing to go to make sure that justice is served, and no one—not even Lock—will be able to stop her.

One Wish Away by Ingrid Seymour Cover Reveal and Giveaway

One Wish Away (Releasing Feb 7th, 2017)

Can one love destroy the world?

Marielle Iris used to believe her grandpa when he said she’d inherit his wish-granting Djinn.
That was a while ago, though, when she was little, naïve and happy. Now she believes in completely different things like lousy ex-boyfriends, dead mothers, and alcoholic fathers who abandon you.
But everything changes when Grandpa dies and her mourning tears conjure Faris Nasser, a sensual creature she’s been warned never to trust. She’s desperate to dismiss the fiend but agonizes over the right wishes. Meanwhile, he tries to prolong his freedom by seducing her with his magic and sexy looks. However, she knows better than to trust romantic advances, much less from arrogant mythical beings. What she doesn’t know is that she’s become part of a mortal conflict between two spell-bound Djinn, each seeking to regain freedom by breaking their curse. Though Zet, Faris’s Djinn brother, also wants revenge, which involves killing Marielle.
Determined to stay alive, she devises a plan to defeat Zet. But when Zet kidnaps her best friend, she’s faced with the difficult choice: save Faris from eternal imprisonment or save her best friend from certain death.

The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid
SIMON & SCHUSTER
November 7th- 11th
GOODREADS LINK


SYNOPSIS:
A Diabolic is ruthless. A Diabolic is powerful. A Diabolic has a single task: Kill in order to protect the person you’ve been created for.

Nemesis is a Diabolic, a humanoid teenager created to protect a galactic senator’s daughter, Sidonia. The two have grown up side by side, but are in no way sisters. Nemesis is expected to give her life for Sidonia, and she would do so gladly. She would also take as many lives as necessary to keep Sidonia safe.

When the power-mad Emperor learns Sidonia’s father is participating in a rebellion, he summons Sidonia to the Galactic court. She is to serve as a hostage. Now, there is only one way for Nemesis to protect Sidonia. She must become her. Nemesis travels to the court disguised as Sidonia—a killing machine masquerading in a world of corrupt politicians and two-faced senators’ children. It’s a nest of vipers with threats on every side, but Nemesis must keep her true abilities a secret or risk everything.

As the Empire begins to fracture and rebellion looms closer, Nemesis learns there is something more to her than just deadly force. She finds a humanity truer than what she encounters from most humans. Amidst all the danger, action, and intrigue, her humanity just might be the thing that saves her life—and the empire.

The Blessed Knights Blog Review Tour


Title: The Blessed Knights
Author: Mary Ting
Genre: YA Fantasy/Paranormal
Editor: Jessica Nelson
Cover Designer: Regina Wamba at MaeIDesign & Photography
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR


Blurb:
Above a small hill lay a home.
And green men peer out under the dome.
Thirteen crisscrossing arches behold,
with angels singing must be told.
Cubes like teeth thus showed,
pierce one and the door shall glow.
Part the sea like Moses,
to see the bundle of red roses.
Only then you shall see,
what is destined to be free.

Eli, Lucia’s half-demon love interest, has been stabbed with a true-cross dagger and captured by Cyrus, master of the possessor demons. The Chosen Knights must work together once again not only to save Eli, but also to decipher a clue to find the second missing page of Jacques de Molay’s journal. Meanwhile, Uncle Davin informs Crossroads’ Divine Elders of the danger ahead and learns there is much to fear. Countless children are being taken from all over the world to be turned into demons. Michael, one of the Divine Elders, has no choice but to intervene. The Chosen Knights track down Mortem, the demon who is the key to finding Cyrus, and learn they must travel deep into the pit of a Hawaiian volcano. When they astral travel to the past in search of a clue and follow Jacques de Molay to Rosselyn Chapel in medieval Scotland, what they find will rewrite history.

My Review



The second installment of the Angel Knights continues with action and suspense with finding clues left by the Knights Templar left down to their descendants to rid the evil.

With Eli held prisoner, the Blessed Knights must come together more than ever to find a way to free Eli while at the same time, try to decipher clues left by the Templar before Cyrus. But is Cyrus their only enemy?

Friendships, loyalty, and the struggle to ward off the evil keeps this story moving at a fierce pace.  Will Lucia's feelings for Eli interfere with their success?

Characters that you fell in love with from the Crossroad series make an appearance....giving you all the feels and love for this spin-off series.

With all the action packed into this story, where the words disappear magically from the page, it still holds so much mystery that you know, feel it in your bones, that there's so much more to come.  How an author can build that intense anticipation is complete brilliance.

With a cliffhanger that will leave your fingers cramped, this story as all the emotions you can imagine that comes from the creative mind of Mary Ting....she never lets me down!



Author Bio: 


Mary Ting resides in Southern California with her husband and two children. She enjoys oil painting and making jewelry. Writing her first novel, Crossroads Saga, happened by chance. It was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother, and inspired by a dream she once had as a young girl. When she started reading new adult novels, she fell in love with the genre. It was the reason she had to write one-Something Great. Why the pen name, M Clarke? She tours with Magic Johnson Foundation to promote literacy and her children’s chapter book-No Bullies Allowed.

November 1st - 5th
GOODREADS LINK

SYNOPSIS:
The highly anticipated sequel to the award winning “The Hockey Saint” taking place ten years after “Saint” ends. The legendary Jeremiah “Jake” Jacobson, now thirty two, has been the world’s best hockey player over his fourteen year career because of his out of this world talent level and his smart play. But he can’t stay on top forever, and when he starts making mistakes on the ice, his career and family life start to crumble.

At the same time, Tom Leonard, his agent and best friend, is completely overwhelmed by a project that he and Jake were supposed to be working on together. A project that could have a huge impact on people throughout their city in need of a helping hand. As Jake sinks deeper into a funk over his lost status due to his deteriorating play and the emergence of teammate and rookie phenom Barclay Pedersen, Tom realizes he’s on his own. At the same time he rediscovers someone from his past who he never thought he’d see again. In that burgeoning relationship, Tom discovers the importance of taking chances and starts to believe in himself.

Can Jake break out of his downward spiral and Tom finally find the courage to step out of Jake’s shadow?
