Warrior’s Duty Cover Reveal

You guys, it’s finally here! And this is no doubt my favourite cover of them all.
SO PRETTY!
What do you think?
Title: Warrior’s Duty
Series: Nature’s Destiny #4
Author: Justine Winter
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: February 17, 2016
Death. Destruction. Demons.
War was officially declared.

Blade’s rebirth into the world became something we truly weren’t prepared for. And I felt guilty. Blaming myself for not getting to Lara in time. 

She was gone. Nature’s Destiny was grieving.

In the midst of our woes the battle was brewing. Incubi kept coming. Hell beasts were slaying. And the demon master was another step closer to winning.

With an army of supernatural beings in my arsenal I was optimistic that we were enough. We had the prophecy and my fortitudo on our side.

Whatever happened there was one thing I knew for certain.

The end had come.

The beast taunted me, stalked me like I was its prey. Its coal-like skin, straight from the mouth of hell, sizzled brightly with streaks of orange. The lava of its home. I never stood a chance in this war, I was one wolf against an army of demons; they kept me distracted long enough to ensure there was nothing I could do to jeopardise their hostile takeover. I soon learned that distraction was their greatest tactic, their only worthwhile weapon. But still, there were little acts of heroism I could partake in; chained and bound in a cage granted me little freedom. I was the hell beasts’ toy, to scratch, to bite, to chase when dull moments had them bored. Compared to my torment, I was sure death would be a gift as inviting as a freshly picked bouquet of flowers. I no longer wanted to endure such heinous, criminal, apocalyptic affairs. I wished for death, and the devil laughed in my face.

 
I’ve always lived a life based on my imagination, from hopeless dreams of romance to concocting alternate realities involving supernaturals. I’m completely fascinated with anything hero-related, and often speculate which superpower I’d possess. I haven’t settled on one yet.
I was born in England, and currently reside in Wales, UK. I love to write, and most days you’ll find me happily tapping away at the computer whilst in my pyjama-clad bubble. I also spend my time reading, and if that isn’t enough I’m often in the kitchen baking up a treat.

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!

 

Alpha Wanted: Part 2

Alpha Wanted: Part 2 is OUT!

The serial continues…

Last week I released part 1 of my latest project. Today, part 2 is gracing the electronic shelves at Amazon. If you haven’t read part 1 yet, then I advise you don’t read the blurb further on. I hate to spoil it for you! Here’s all you need to know. The cover. The blurb. And the buy link.

Alpha Wanted 2 OTHER SITES

 

Now that Hunter’s been accused of murdering the panther shifter, Kira faces the confusion of whom she should trust. Ryker, the Alpha easily winning her  heart, or Harvey, her long-time partner at P.D.S.I.S

Whilst she follows the evidence, Ryker proves himself as an asset, saving her from injury when her mind is otherwise occupied.

As the case demands more of their time together, the unmistakeable chemistry between them reaches boiling point.

Can Ryker persuade Kira he’s just what she needs or will her appreciation for professionalism keep them apart?

**WARNING! This is part 2 of a 3-part serial. The story expands through each part where it’ll eventually conclude in part 3. Nothing is resolved until then. Due to mature content readers are advised to be 17/18+**

Alpha Wanted: Part 1 is OUT NOW!

When the Director of P.D.S.I.S assigns Kira the task of recruiting Ryker to the agency, conflict soon compromises the logistics of an easy case.

With a fiery relationship bubbling between them, they’re faced with a tough decision.
Follow orders or follow their heart.

Seven 11 Blog Hop

Bloody hell! I almost forgot to type this month’s teaser, and I know that would’ve been devastating. Right?  Anyway, now that I’ve remembered, how about a little less chit chat and a little more show and tell. I got you covered. Next month I intend to release all 3 parts of my werewolf serial, Alpha Wanted, a week apart from one another. So, how about a teaser from part 1?  Alrightey then!

 “It  was  a  mistake,”  I  forced  out  of  my  mouth.  Even  hearing  the  words  out  loud  turned  my  stomach  against  me.

“Sure  didn’t  feel  like  a  mistake  when  you  were  moaning  into  my  mouth.” 

I  turned  to  Ryker,  fixing  my  glare  on  his  rugged  face.  I  hated  how  easy  it  was  for  me  to  lose  control  around  him,  to  lose  all  my  inhibitions  inside  the  pools  of  his  blue  eyes.  I  tightened  my  lips  together.  “It  won’t  be  happening  again,”  I  promised,  keeping  my  grip  firm  on  the  steering  wheel.

“Princess,  that  was  the  best  mistake  I’ve  ever  made.  So  you  can  trust  me  when  I  say  I  intend  to  do  it  again.  I’ll  make  sure  I’ll  never  learn  my  lesson.”

I’m a mixture of excitement and nerves to find out the response to this serial as it’s something I haven’t done before. But, you know what? No great accomplishment was achieved without a little risk taking. So I’m diving in head first. It’s also the closest I’ve come to writing a crime/mystery type of book within the boundaries of paranormal/supernatural goodness. Of course. What’s a little crime solving without a hunky wolf? So be on the lookout for cover reveals/blurbs etc in the next couple of weeks. Yay!

As always there’s many brilliantly talented authors participating on the hop, so be sure to check them out. And GIVEAWAYS! So here’s what’s what this month:

Heather Hildenbrand has a custom Dirty Blood Mug up for grabs! Enter here.
Bethany Lopez has 8 weeks up for grabs on goodreads. Enter here.

Also it’s an exciting month for book releases!
Today, Heather Hildenbrand’s Broken Blood, book 5 in the Dirty Blood series comes out!
Steph Nuss is releasing Pleasured By You on March 20th.
Kayla Smith is releasing The Sacrifice on March 31st.

Congratulations, ladies!

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.
