Ten paranormal tales and one page-turning supernatural academy story in this spinoff from the award-winning Havenwood Falls universe.

The brand new Sun & Moon Academy College of Supernatural Guardians is an elite training program for a covert army that protects the supernatural community around the world. After a series of grueling trials to test their worthiness, only the top tier of applicants are admitted to the hidden college under the mountain.

We are ten of those students.

We’re a powerful mix of shifters, witches, vampires, demigods, angels, and more, making SMA no ordinary university. Throw in classes about healing potions, inter-dimensional exploration, and combat training, and college life here is a bit . . . well, unusual. But we still must juggle studying, obnoxious roommates, and killer parties. And, of course, we always make room for romance. How can we not? No other place in the world teems with such a sexy fusion of brains and badassery.

But classes haven’t even begun when our campus is terrorized, and the dangers continue throughout the semester—a hacker who threatens to publicly expose our school, a string of vampire attacks, invisible beasts with deadly bites, cursed classrooms that devour those who dare enter . . . What the hell kind of place is this, anyway?

For some reason that not even the Board of Regents has been able to figure out, it’s up to the ten of us to defeat these monsters and mayhem—before the sands in the big courtyard hourglass run out. Yep, we’re being timed, and the bodies are dropping almost as fast as the crystals. If any of us fail, this first semester of SMA just might be the last one ever. 

In this unique anthology of over 750 pages, you not only get ten paranormal fantasy novellas, but one sweeping story that will have you flipping pages until the end.

Binge Reading On A Reality Funk

When  I’m  not  in  the  throes  of  bashing  out  a  first  draft,  my  Sundays  are  often  spent  reading.  And  for  the  past  few  weeks  that’s  what  I’ve  been  doing,  all  because  I  fell  in  love  with  Cambria  Hebert’s  Hashtag  Series.  After  reading  all  four  of  those  books  in  just as  many  days,  I’ve  been  left  with  an  American  football  player-sized hole  in  my  heart.  Nothing  else  I  read  is  filling  that  gap  while  I  wait  for  the  fifth  book  to  be  released  later  this  month.  (YAY)  You  see,  I’ve  been  spoiled.  How  was  I  to  know  when  I  first  picked  up  #Nerd  that  I’d  fall  in  deep  down  the  fictional  tunnel?  The  characters  captivated  my  attention  so  badly  that  even  after  a  couple  of  weeks  I’m  still  not  ready  to  let  that  piece  of  me  go.  I’m  being  held  hostage.

I’m  positive  all  book  lovers  know  what  I’m  talking  about.  It’s  that  complete  euphoria  of  fulfillment  at  having  discovered  a  new  treasure.  We’re  all  literary  pirates  –  our  eyes  gleam  in  reflection  of  the  gold  sitting  pretty  in  our  hands.  Those  beautiful  covers  are  the  visual  enticement  to  our  addiction.  They  beg  to  be  read.

Writers  are  readers  whose  love  for  words  never  stop  at  the  last  page.  The  story  might  be  finished  but  the  writer  isn’t  done.  I’m  constantly  waking  up  with  complex  sentences  formulating  paragraphs  rolling  around  my  mind,  desperate  to  create  awe-inspiring  moments  for  like-minded  readers.  And  all  that  lexis  comes  from  somewhere.

Books.

To  learn.  To  nourish.  To  satisfy.

I’m  stuck  in  a  reading  binge  funk.  I  have  plenty  of  books  lined  up,  but  nothing’s  grabbing  my  attention.  I  have  to  be  in  the  right  mood  for  a  particular  genre.  Right  now,  I’m  stuck  in  New  Adult  land.  You  see,  it’s  that  hole  in  my  heart  that  needs  patching  up  with  new  words.  I  need  a  new  set  of  friends  while  my  others  are  on  hiatus.

So  here’s  what  I  want  to  know  from  you.  What  are  you  currently  reading?  What  genre  is  it?  And  what’s  your  absolute  favourite  book?  The  one  that  made  you  fall  in  love  with  reading. I  know  it’s  a  tough  question.  I  don’t  even  know  if  I  have  one  myself.


Announcement:  The  winners  of  Alpha  Wanted:  The  Complete  Serial  paperback  have  been  chosen.

CONGRATULATIONS  to  Cindy  of  Indy  Book  Fairy  and  Myra  of  MsMe28!

“Creating  pleasure,”  I  say,  watching  Maya’s  eyes  widen  with  a  little  bit  of  shock.

“That’s  your  company’s  motto?  It  sounds  like  a  review  title  for  a  porno.” 

My  smile  widens  at  her  obvious  discomfort.  “Everything  I  do  caters  to  society’s   need  to  feel  good.  Drinking.  Exercising.  Partying.  Holidays.  It’s  all  legal.  It  makes  people  happy.  And  there’s  no  better  return  on  investments  than  pleasure.  I  give  it.  I  take  it.  I  make  it.”  I  drip  my  voice  with  heavy  seduction,  lowering  my  tone  to  drive  her  wild.

She  visibly  swallows,  that  small  movement   lets  me  know  she  isn’t  totally  unaffected  by  me.  Thank  fuck  for  that,  because  my  dick  is  choking  on  my  boxers  at  even  the  smallest  thought  of  having  her.

“Is  there  anything  else  you  want  from  me?”

Sex  on  the  table?  “That’s  all  for  now.”

As always,  don’t  forget  to  check  out  these  authors  also  participating  in  a  little  teaser  action. Ooh,  it’s  a  saucy  Thursday!

I was dying.

Every minute I wasted without a mate, my mind became more volatile. I was unbalanced, stronger than I was capable of handling alone.

Supposedly, I was destined for greatness, but apparently I had to overcome another task first.

A mating.

Riley was my one true love. I was sure. However, that didn’t necessarily mean I was his. Complications, it seemed, were becoming my forte.

Despite my personal problems, the demons emerged, offering little hope and even less mercy. With my mind preoccupied, I wasn’t ready for the attack heading our way.

The pack needed me now more than ever, but the demons were cunning, thwarting my plans and upping the stakes each time.

I was letting them down. We weren’t ready. I wasn’t ready. 

Darkness descended on Nature’s Destiny, and sadness was sure to come.

War had begun.

Nature's Destiny

Winter’s Hibernation

Jesus  Justine!  Where’ve  you  been?

I  know  that’s  the  thought  pursed  on  your  lips.  It’s  been  a  while  since  I’ve  properly  blogged,  and  I  apologise  for  that,  but  I  promise  I’ve  been  busy.  Well,  mostly  busy.  The  rest  of  the  time  I  may  have  spent  it  watching  this. . .

2e3a908d0bdb9d9e380c13bfac23d152And  drinking  a  little  of  this. . .

jack-danielsAnd  watching  a  little  more. . .

805cfac2ae611d578fe041bdf9a71fbfAnd  I  may  or  may  not  be  watching  it  as  I  write  this  post,  and  drinking  too.  Hey,  what  can  I  say?  I’m  consistent.  Besides  all  of  that,  I  truly  have  been  hard  at  work,  busting  out  the  words  I  know  you’re  dying  to  read.  So,  how  about  a  little  exciting  update?

Guardians  Dynasty,  Nature’s  Destiny  3,  releases  in  TWO  WEEKS.  Two  weeks  today!  And  judging  by  the  messages  I’ve  been  receiving  you’re  all  dying  to  know  what’s  going  to  happen  between  Luna  and  Riley.  Fear  not,  the  wait  is  almost  over.  So,  how  about  a  little  teaser?

“Luna,  it’s  Jaiyana.”

Taken  by  surprise,  I  smiled  into  the  phone.  It  was  good  to   hear    from  her.  “Hey!  How  are  you?” 

“Busy,  as  always.  Things  aren’t  looking  good  in  the   supernatural  world.”

I  sighed.  “I  know.  Did  you  hear  what  happened?”  Entering  the  living  room  I  settled  on  one  of  the  sofas,  pressing  the  phone  to  my  ear.

“Actually,  it’s  why  I’m  calling.  My  brother,  sister  and  I  apologise  for  not  being  able  to  celebrate  with  you,  unfortunately  our  calling  prohibited  time  for  fun.  Your  world  is  becoming  decidedly  dark,  Luna,  and   there  are  many   forces  battling  for  freedom.”

My  breath  hitched.  I’d  known  this  was  coming,  the  demon  had  all  but  promised  it,  but  hearing  the  words  from  Jaiyana  was  a  confirmation  I  didn’t  want. 

The  war  was  building  around  us.

Ooh,  isn’t  that  exciting?!  I  can’t  wait  to  find  out  what  you  guys  think  of  the  journey  in  this  book.  Aside  from  the  wolves  in  Nature’s  Destiny,  I’ve  also  been  dedicating  my  time  to  the  wolves  in  Alpha  Wanted,  a  3-part  serial  I  intend  to  release  sometime  in  Spring.  So  fear  not,  darlings!  I  may  be  quiet  on  here,  but  I’m  working  furiously  in  the  background  to  get  you  what  you  want  most:  a  sizzling  Alpha  with  a  story  to  tell.

Have  a  great  week!

My  life  was  changing,  morphing  into  something  greater  than  I  could  have  anticipated.  I  was becoming  something  I  didn’t  recognise  as  myself  anymore.  A  Werewolf.

I  was  different.
Bitten.

‘Hybrid’  was  what  they  called  me,  and  the  weight  that  rested  against  that  one  word  was crippling.  They  depended  on  me  to  bring  them  safety.  What  made  me  so  special?

Oh,  that’s  right.  My  destiny.

I  was  sucked  into  a  world  I’d  had  no  idea  existed.  Twenty-one  years  as  a  human,  and  this was  what  I  found  out.

My  travelling  plans,  my  writing  degree,  all  of  it  was  gone  within  one  night.  One  evil  night that  robbed  my  humanity.

I  wasn’t  completely  sour.  Life  had  been  unfair  a  while  ago,  only  now  I’d  had  something worth  fighting  for  besides  myself.  Something  to  live  for.

I  was  afraid  for  the  others.  I  couldn’t  let  them  down.  I  wouldn’t  let  them  down.

I’d  gone  to  bed  a  human  and  woken  up  a  Werewolf.

A  special  Werewolf.
A  Hybrid.
