Margaritas, Mayhem & Murder Book Blast

Blurb:
Andi’s step-mother is a real piece of work! But is Ruby a murderer?

Andi Anna Jones, so-so travel agent/amateur sleuth, puts aside her resentment of her father’s widow and books a 60th birthday cruise to Cancun for Ruby and three friends. Never does Andi imagine the cruise will lead to the murder of a has-been lounge singer—or that Ruby will be the main suspect.

Flirting with more than danger after arriving in Mexico, Andi connects with the charming local sheriff, Manual Rodriquez. After an embarrassing night involving the sheriff, too many margaritas, and a Mariachi band, a chance to check out an eyewitness to the murder leads her to Las Vegas.

In Vegas, a mysterious meeting in the Bodies Exhibition, a body preserving in the prep-room, and an evasive owner of a dance studio, give Andi clues to help Ruby. But when Andi is mercilessly drugged and locked in a storage room, she realizes dear old step-mom isn’t the only one in jeopardy.



Excerpt:
“Tell me what’s going on. Slowly, and about fifty decibels lower. Why are you in jail?”

“Well, honey, I’m not sure. Oh, I know what they’re saying, but I didn’t do anything. I swear. Well, at least nothin’ I can remember. You see, it all started on the cruise ship dance floor, quite innocently, mind you.”

“What started?” I located my slippers and shuffled to the bathroom.

“As I was saying before you interrupted, it all started on the dance floor. You know, they play such romantic music on these cruises like, Shadow of Your Smile and Mandy. Oh, don’t you just love Manilow? Well, anyway, Lenny and I were having a lovely time, and he was obviously enamored, if you catch my drift.”

I knew this was a mistake. Still, I asked, “Lenny who?”

“Why, Lenny La Mour, of course!”

I drew a blank.

“Lenny La Mour,” Ruby huffed, “The famous Las Vegas performer? He’s the reason I picked this cruise. He had his own humongous nightclub and everything. Oh, Andi Anna, don’t tell me you’ve never heard of him. Why, women my age swoon at the sound of his voice. But, I suppose your generation only has eyes for that Bon Ami person.”

“Uh, are you, by any chance, talking about Bon Jovi?”

“Well, you know who I mean.”

Retribution NBtM

Blurb:
A gripping romantic suspense of betrayal, hope and love.

Jessie Hilton is tough. Since the age of fifteen, she has dreamed of being a principal dancer with the Australia Ballet Company. Now at twenty-four, she stands on the brink of fulfilling her dream unaware of a secret buried deep within her.

Ex-military officer, Brad Jordan is rebuilding his life with the help of his boisterous Border collie, Whiskey. After helping Jessie out of a tight spot, he discovers a kindred spirit in the ambitious ballerina.

But with the sudden attention of an unwanted admirer, Jessie’s life begins to spin out of control. Called back to her family home in country New South Wales due to her father’s unforeseen illness, she is torn between career and family. As her dream of being principal dancer fades, her stalker edges ever closer. But there is more to overcome than a lurking psychopath. Can Jessie and Brad confront their own past demons and finally be free?

Award winning author, Diane Demetre writes genre-busting stories which delve deep into the human psyche, and Retribution is no exception. Winner of Romance Writers of Australia Emerald Pro Award for Best Unpublished Manuscript, Retribution is her first romantic suspense. If you love a cast of complex characters, a slow simmering romance and an intriguing plot, don’t miss this page-turning romantic suspense with a twist.



Excerpt:
“But I did find this.” He held up a sealed pink envelope that he’d skewered on the tip of one of Jessie’s kitchen forks. The wary expression on his face kindled a spark of fear in her. 

She eyed it with suspicion. “What is it?”

“I’m not sure, but it was propped up on the pillows on your bed and it’s addressed to you. I haven’t touched it.” His flinty gaze riveted her to the spot. An icy shiver skidded down her spine, leaving a path of cold, clammy apprehension.

“You open it.” She rubbed her arms a little too fiercely.

“Do you have any gloves? If this has got fingerprints on it, I don’t want to contaminate evidence.”

“Yes. Under the sink in my bathroom. There’re disposable gloves in a box.” She cocked her head in the direction, indicating he should go and find them. Her legs felt like jelly, and she feared that if she tried to go and get the gloves herself, she’d fall flat on her face.

Within a minute or two, he returned with a pair of gloves that he offered to her. “You’ll have to put them on. They’re too small for me.”

Jessie rubbed her hands, stalling for time. She reached for the gloves and braced herself as if expecting them to send an electric shock up her arms. Doing her best to remain calm, she pushed her hands into the gloves, finishing each with a snap.

He stared at her with an expression of grim determination. “You have to open it, Jessie. If you don’t want to read it, leave it on the table and walk away. I’ll read it if you like.”

Her hands trembled as she plucked the envelope from the fork. The back of it peeled up effortlessly, and she imagined the person who had left it licking it with their vile tongue and sealing it with just enough of their wetness, but not so much as to stick it tight. She swallowed down her revulsion before she gagged on it. Reluctantly, she opened the envelope and eased out an innocent piece of squarely folded pink paper. Flattening it out, she wrenched her gaze away, before she accidentally read its contents. 




Diane, thanks so much for stopping by. How did you get started writing?
I finally succumbed to reading Fifty Shades of Grey and became incensed by the premise of a young woman giving away her power to a damaged abuser, I decided to write a counter book about 42year old woman who has sex on her terms…This became Dancing Queen and was the first book in my erotic romance series, The Dance of Love.


What was the inspiration for your book?
The inspiration for my current book, Retribution which is a romantic suspense was to pay tribute to people who have suffered more than most and to explore how some of them find their way out of their trauma while others get caught in a cycle of acting out.


What’s a genre you haven’t written in yet that you’d like to?
Nothing at the moment. Mystery and suspense seem a good fit for me.


Are there any genres you won’t read or write in? Why?
I won’t read or write erotica. It’s too graphic. The sexual relationship has little to do with the story. It’s sex for sex sake.


What are you up to now? Do you have any releases planned, or are you still writing?
On 14th September this year, I’ll be releasing my next romantic suspense, Island of Secrets, a sweeping multi-generational story set on a private island off the coast of Maui. It spans forty years and poses the question of choosing between love or money.

Currently, I’m writing the first in my mystery series which features a recently-widowed female protagonist who finds herself in all sorts of trouble onboard the Silver Galapagos expedition ship. It’s very Agatha Christie.


Alright, now for some random, fun questions. Favorite color?
Can’t choose because all of them have their own wonderful energy.


Favorite movie?    
Too hard, too many. One of them would be the classic all-time great musical, American in Paris.


Book that inspired you to become an author? 
As I said, FSOG pushed me to write.


You have one superpower. What is it?
Being Iam that Iam.
 

You can have dinner with any 3 people, dead, alive, fictitious, etc. Who are they?
Jesus, because I want to hear the greatest story ever told from his viewpoint, my mother who died a few years ago and Oprah. I think we’d do a fabulous interview together with JC.


Last question: Which of your characters are you most like and how/why?
Michele Johnston from Dancing Queen

The Gorgon Bride Review Tour

Blurb:
THE GODS ARE FUNNY.

Except when you piss them off.

Then they suck.

They really, really suck.

(Really).

Alexander Weiss discovers this tidbit when he inadvertently insults Athena, Goddess of Wisdom, and she casts him away on a forgotten isle filled with statues.

Being marooned is bad enough, but the fact that the island is also the home of Euryale, elder sister to Medusa, makes the situation a touch worse. The only thing keeping Alex from being petrified is the fact that Euryale has taken a liking to the blundering mortal.

For now.

What follows next is a wild, adventurous tale filled with heroes, gods, monsters, love, and war that is nothing short of legendary.



Excerpt:
"I’m sorry, but I don’t understand what you’re saying,” Alex said, scratching his neatly trimmed beard. “Run that by me again?”

“Most certainly, kind sir,” the man replied. He wore a red tunic and conical hat and stood upon a small skiff. He kept his right hand stretched out and leaned on a pole with his left. “If you wish to cross the Acheron, it will be one obol,” he said, slowly enunciating every syllable. “Otherwise, you’ll have to join the others alongside the bank.”
         
The man’s words seeped into Alex’s mind. He looked about and noted that the shore stretched for a hundred yards to each side before being engulfed by a thick fog. Shadowy forms of people dotted the landscape. Some skipped stones. Others meandered. None interacted with one another.
         
Alex turned back to the man. “And you are?”
         
“Kharon,” the man replied. A smile flashed across his disfigured face. “Ferryman of the unseen.”
         
“Are you telling me I’m dead?”
         
“No. I’m telling you it’ll be one obol if you wish to cross.”
         
Alex shook his head. “I can’t be dead. This is nonsense.”
         
“The dead are those who have gone on.” Kharon said, motioning with his pole toward the waters. “You’re not dead, yet.”
         
“So you’re telling me I’m alive?”
         
Kharon sighed. “Look, this is simple. You can’t be squashed by a six-ton aquatic mammal and expect to live.”
         
“So what the hell am I, then?”
         
“Alexander Weiss, I presume,” Kharon said, shrugging. “Though I never asked your name, you do match the description given to me.”
         
“I must be dreaming.”
         
“You’re not.”
         
“I’ll wake up soon or something.” Alex tried pinching himself.
         
“You won’t.”
         
“Yes,” Alex told himself. “I’ll wait a moment and this will all be over.”
         
Kharon shrugged. “You’ll be here awhile.”

Under the Radar Review Tour

Blurb:
Two brothers. Two best friends. One robbery gone wrong.

With a court date looming, a near-fatal car accident, and a house invasion, the four surviving witnesses to an armed robbery know they are targets. In a desperate attempt to stay safe, they take matters into their own hands and go off the grid a week before the trial.

Danny St. John was stuck in a dark place of guilt and regret after a personal tragedy. On the run from violent criminals, he is forced to spend time with the one woman who makes him feel too much. Victoria Lopez needs to protect her heart, but she also misses the guy Danny used to be and thinks she might be able to bring him back. Now, evading gunmen together in Sequoia National Forest, Vic will risk everything to keep Danny safe.

Eric St. John isn’t a big fan of his sister-in-law-to-be, Zoe Turner. Sure, she’s beautiful, but also bossy and brash. When Eric and Zoe are forced to rely on each other for survival, he sees a side to Zoe he never anticipated, a side he definitely likes. But as the two grow closer, so do the men hunting them down.

Time nearly runs out as each couple must not only brave the perils of the wilderness and their growing feelings for each other, but also outwit their pursuers in a deadly game of cat and mouse.



Excerpt:
Something moved in the bushes just outside the window in the corner of the room. Zoe’s pulse leapt as she sat up in bed.

“Did you hear that?” Vic whispered almost soundlessly.

“I thought you were sleeping.” Zoe’s voice wasn’t much louder.

“Tried. Not successful.”

They heard the tiniest scrap on the glass and both of them bolted out of bed. “Stuff the pillow under the blankets,” Zoe ordered softly. “Shoes,” she said next as she grabbed her flats. Before they could leave the room, an explosion of sound came from the front of the house and Zoe swung Vic into the closet, followed her in, and shut the door as the window in their room blasted apart. Seconds later, heavy footsteps crunched over broken glass.

Fear and nausea erupted in Zoe’s gut like a geyser. Grunts and thuds coming from the hallway marked the sounds of a fight and she held her breath, waiting for someone to pull open the door. She’d pulled Vic into a death trap by jamming them into this closet.

Bullets erupted outside the door and Zoe slapped a hand over her mouth to hold back a scream. The noise stopped and long tense seconds passed as Zoe and Vic stared at each other, the whites of Vic’s eyes clear in the dark. Before Zoe knew what happened, Vic slammed the door open and pounced on the man in front of them, putting him in a chokehold while hanging onto his back. It was the same thing Casey had done when she’d fought off her ex last year. The gun bounced on the floor and Zoe scrambled to reach it, her hands shaking and breath billowing in and out of her lungs.




My Review:
3.5 stars

This is an action-packed read with a twisting, thrilling, fast-moving plot full of suspense. I couldn’t put it down, as it kept me on the edge of my seat and guessing what came next. Add to that a crop of interesting characters and a great writing style, and I truly enjoyed this book.

The only downside is that I found the romance a bit lacking, especially with the focus being on two couples. It seemed like the couples were thrown together due to circumstances, which doesn’t guarantee an HEA in my book. I would have liked to see more of them after all the drama, to see if what they found in the fire would last.

That aside, this was a fun, enjoyable read that I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a suspenseful summer read.

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

The Melded Child Blurb Blitz

Blurb:
For ten years the peace negotiated by the Tari has held firm.  But greedy eyes watch in the distance, coveting the peaceful lands of Yarmar and even the Tari themselves.  A new demon master rises bringing pollution and violence.  When Yani the Raven is kidnapped, sorceress Marigoth and her companion Ezratah are drawn to Armaya and a trap set by a brutal necromancer and his insane sister.  Meanwhile Elena Starchild’s daughter Alyx, heir to the throne of the Mori finds herself wounded and on the run in a forest full of dark magic. And in the company of a bitter Mirayan enemy.

Can the insular Tari dreaming in the secret land of Ermora be awoken before the demon fire consumes them?  And can a Melded Child bring harmony in clasped hands before it is too late?



Excerpt:
Duchess Jindabyne Madraga, whose memory of the time before she married the Duke has been destroyed by magic, has been captured by her mortal enemies, the forest-dwelling Mori.  Their Hooded Queen demands an audience with her.

“Lady, if I wronged you, I humbly beg pardon,” cried Jindabyne.   “Please forgive me.  I was another person then.”

The Mori woman was at the Queen’s side, dragging on her arm talking to her urgently in Mori, a language that Jindabyne did not know.   The queen let herself be pulled away for a moment.   Then suddenly she swung back.

“Have you really forgotten me Jindabyne!  I find that very hard to believe.”

She ripped the covering off her face. 

Jindabyne gasped.  Before her stood the most beautiful woman she had ever seen.  Utterly, utterly, breathtakingly lovely.  How could she have forgotten her! 

As she stared in open mouthed amazement, the woman’s eyes widened and the glaring hatred on her face changed to bitter amusement. 

“So!  Marigoth was right,” she said, her mouth twisting wryly.  “Or I am less memorable than I thought I was. Something to hope for.” 

“Lady I am sorry,” said Jindabyne.  “I always suspected that I did wrong in the past, but I am different now and willing to make amends.”

The savagery of the woman’s glare did not make her any less beautiful.  For a moment Jindabyne thought she was going to leap on her again, but then she slumped back onto her seat.

“Take her away!” she said her voice heavy with disgust.   “I cannot bear the sight of her.” 

“Lady please!” cried Jindabyne, as the guards dragged her away.  “If you wish revenge...  Do not harm the others.  They are innocent of any harm to you.  Especially Olga.  You are a mother yourself.”

Little Computer People Review Tour

Blurb:
When Gabe created the world’s first sentient program, Pi, he thought things couldn’t get better.

Now he’s pretty sure things couldn’t get worse.

After a colossal error on Gabe’s part, Pi turns into a binary monster along the lines of HAL, GLaDOS, and SHODAN. As she goes on the rampage, the only thing rendering her mostly harmless is the fact that she doesn’t fully understand the physical world...yet.

But she’s learning.

And unless Gabe quickly finds a way to rein her in or shut her down, the next time Pi starts a fire, it won’t just be his empty house that goes up in flames.

If you’re a fan of Douglas Adams, Christopher Moore, or Terry Pratchet, then this is a novel for you.



Excerpt:
Most people that get even a whiff of my aspirations think I’m exaggerating or being facetious. Those people are dead wrong. I’m not some random surgeon who thinks he’s divine because he can save a life. Nor am I a guy in a lab coat who dabbles in gene manipulation or cloning techniques and pretends such pursuits are God-like. Those guys are demigods at best. “God lite,” if you will. As far as I’m concerned, claiming to be The Almighty because you cloned a sheep is like claiming to be a world-class author because you know how to work the Xerox machine. So forgive me if I’m less than impressed by some of the boys in R&D.

Laura's Legacy Book Blast



Blurb:
While Laura was attending the annual omega celebration, a ruthless ogre attack destroyed her village and wiped out her family. Heartbroken, lonely, and adrift, she was forced to rely on the kindness of the Black Ridge wolf pack alpha for a home. And so were many others, including members of the small Newton pack, and their handsome, strong alpha, Dedric. One brief interlude was all it took for Laura to know she would choose him as her mate.

Alpha Dedric Newton couldn’t believe his good fortune. Beautiful and powerful, Laura was the omega of his dreams. Worried he had so little to offer, he insists she spend time with his small pack as they rebuild their village and homes. Laura and Dedric’s time in Newton strengthens their bond while evil works to undo all of Laura’s gifts, especially her legacy. After finding the greatest love an alpha could dream of, Dedric will do anything and everything to keep Laura safe from harm.

Excerpt:
Dedric stormed back to his temporary house where his beta, his parents and the head of the women’s auxiliary waited in grim silence. Mary and Wilhelm, Samson and Rayanne followed him into his office. He sat behind his desk trying to calm the rage burning inside of him before speaking to the group squeezed into the room, all of them wearing the same pissed-off expression. It wouldn’t do to start ripping heads off to find out who was responsible for this insult, but Dedric was so angry he now understood what people meant when they said their blood boiled.

“Answers,” Dedric ordered. “I want answers as to why what should have been a happy and joyous occasion could have turned into chaos and insult. If we weren’t lucky enough to have Laura’s abilities this would have turned out to be a disaster.”

“Son, I can’t think of one person in our pack who would do something like this,” his mother said. “Everyone was overjoyed when they found out you had attracted the attention of an omega,” she assured him as she poured him a cup of coffee from the machine on the sideboard.

“Well somebody did,” Wilhelm groused. “It was plain to see the leg of the table had been cut. It wasn’t a failure due to the weight of the cake and it wasn’t because the table was old, because they’re new. Someone is responsible.” Wilhelm stared out the window. “I think you need to say something to the pack.”

“I will in the morning,” Dedric agreed.

“Oh, I think it’s going to have to be a bit sooner than that,” Samson said as he looked out the window and into the yard in front of the house.

Dedric got up, rounded his desk and looked through the window to find what looked like the whole pack standing in front of his house. Looks like I wasn’t the only one worried about how this affected Laura. “Right. I’ll go speak with them.”
