Stealing Sunday

Welcome back loves!   I hope everyone has had a wonderful week.  I know I did.  Softball is FINALLY over.  It seemed like it was the season that wouldn't end.  Last night was the fireworks for the Freedom Festival, which in pass time it was known as the Ice Cream Festival.  It's held at our county middle school.  There are rides and games and booths set up for vendors and business'. On Saturday night they do a firework show.  Parking is usually really bad.  Luckily, Mr G's mamaw and papaw live on the same street as the school so we get to park at their house and walk the 50 feet to the field and watch them.  The weather is also a lot nicer this year then last.  It was in the high 70's.  Super nice compared to the 100's that we have been getting.  Anyways, enough of me rambling, on to the good stuff!

This is a series and they are each 3.99 or less!  That's a pretty great deal for a series.

By clicking the links below you are creating a WIN/WIN.  You get a great read and I earn a small incentive which in-turn is actually returned to YOU, my readers.  Those small incentive's are saved and used for giveaways.  Which kinda makes it a WIN/WIN/WIN situation.  :)

Happy Reading Yall!

Genre: paranormal
The murder of a dark arts warlock.
A shape-shifting, ravenous creature on the loose.
A devilishly handsome stranger sent to investigate.
Sometimes working law enforcement for the Netherworld is a real bitch.

Dulcie O’Neil is a fairy. And not the type to frolic in gardens. She’s a Regulator—a law-enforcement agent who monitors the creatures of the Netherworld to keep them from wreaking havoc in the mortal world.

When a warlock is murdered and Dulcie was the last person to see him alive, she must uncover the truth before she’s either deported back to the Netherworld, or she becomes the next victim.

Enter Knight Vander, a sinfully attractive investigator sent from the Netherworld to work the case with Dulcie.

Between battling her attraction to her self-appointed partner, keeping a sadomasochistic demon in check, and fending off the advances of a sexy and powerful vampire, Dulcie’s got her hands full.

As the body count increases, Dulcie finds herself battling dark magic, reconnoitering in S&M clubs and suffering the greatest of all betrayals.

A Dreamstalker— a creature that stalks and kills its victims in sleep.
A fairy in law enforcement determined to stop him.
A potions smuggler who possesses something she wants.
A vampire with his own agenda.
And a partner who couldn’t possibly be sexier or more frustrating.

Dulcie O’Neil is a fairy working in law enforcement for the Netherworld.

When Knight Vander approaches her with a case regarding comatose victims, she agrees to help him, imagining the most difficult part will be combating her attraction to him.

But, what Dulcie isn’t betting on is the fact that the case becomes personal when she learns all the victims are somehow linked to her.

When her best friend falls victim to the Dreamstalker, Dulcie must do everything in her power to ensure her friend’s survival, including associating with criminals and accepting the fact that desperate times do definitely call for desperate measures.

A misunderstanding turned deadly.
A fairy in law enforcement who won't stop until the truth is uncovered.
A vampire who seems to be her ally but appearances can be deceiving.
And a partner who would put his own life on the line to defend hers.

Dulcie O'Neil knows she's at fault for failing to arrest a wanted criminal but when her partner gets pinned for the crime, she'll stop at nothing to ensure his innocence.

What Dulcie isn't planning on is a trip to the infamous Netherworld where chaos rules.

Between battling the affections of a mysterious vampire, protecting herself from monsters and ensuring the innocence of the one man who would die for her, Dulcie's trip to the Netherworld isn't sunshine and strawberry daiquiris.

 A father she never knew existed,
An impossible decision that had to be made,
A lie she must keep to herself at all costs,
And the realization that every choice she makes has consequences.

Fairy and law enforcement agent, Dulcie O'Neil, has just discovered that her father is the Head of the Netherworld, and a double-dealing, illegal potions importer. Worse yet, she's now working for him.

Knight Vander, Dulcie's boyfriend and Head of the Association of Netherworld Creatures, is on to her father, but, in the process, will he discover Dulcie's secret? And if he does, will it mean his life?

Teaser Tuesday: Dibs in Search of Self

 Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

 Dibs in Search of Self by Virginia M. Axline

He sat down muttering, "No go home. No want to go home.  No feel like going home."

Capter 5.

I started reading this book as a recommendation from my husband.  He had to read it for one of his classes for his Masters.  I'm very happy with it.  I have not got to read that much lately and I wish I could change that.  This is a very interesting book that takes you on the journey of a little boy named Dibs who come out of his self inclosed shell.  If you are interested in how children act or the psychology part you will truly enjoy this book.

Happy Tuesday Yall!

City girl Abby Clumm wouldn't normally travel to remote cabins in Alaska alone. But expecting her Survivor-type friend to be arriving shortly, she reluctantly makes the journey to their rented cottage solo. She'll settle in for a quiet night before a toasty fire with a pot of coffee and a good book.Unfortunately, things don't go as she plans—no real surprise, they never do—and she finds herself alone in the boonies, a shotgun she doesn't know how to use and a failing wooden door the only things standing between her and a very hungry animal outside.
Research scientist Tarik Evert has no idea what's wrong. He's suddenly driven by a need so urgent it's painful. The scent of a woman nearby beckons him, sends him staggering outside into the cold. And then somehow he's at her door, naked and shivering, not sure what just happened…or what is about to happen if she lets him inside. He only knows one thing—the hunger that brought him to her in the first place.And that's just the beginning of their troubles…

Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.
So did his father before him, until he was gruesomely murdered by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father's mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. Together they follow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead—keeping pesky things like the future and friends at bay.
When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn't expect anything outside of the ordinary: track, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he's never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, now stained red and dripping with blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.
But she, for whatever reason, spares Cas's life.

YA Paranormal

 Death never leaves us. Once it's touched our souls, it hungers for our return--waiting for us to fall. And if it finds Ara again, she will have no way to escape.
Moving on from David was hard, forgetting the abduction and torture was almost impossible, but nothing as devastating as the thought that now, because of her, David might face the horrific punishments of the Set.
No one knows where David went after he lost Ara, but she can only hope he's the one leaving subtle clues for her to discover, and it makes her desperate to find him--desperate enough that she would risk her life, hanging out with an informant who means to kill her. What truths she is told about David's dark past, though, will threaten to change her heart and destroy the way Ara perceives everything. She must ask herself if it's right to love one monster, then hate the one who tried to destroy her.
In all her searching, the promise of immortality will finally be renewed, but sold at a price Ara's not sure she's willing to pay.
Is love enough to make her submit to this new role, or will it fail her once again and leave her reaching back for the grasp of death?
