Hate Crush
by Angelina M. Lopez | Interview

Author Introduction

Our hero, Aish Salinger, is a down-on-his-luck but still-famous AND gorgeous rock star and our heroine, Princesa Sofia de Esperanza y Santos, is a millionaire winemaking princess whose new winery, a winery she hopes will improve the fortunes of her kingdom, can't get any attention.

A fake relationship between them would draw the world's gaze to her winery and solve Aish's image problems. There's just one catch: She hates him. He broke her heart ten years when they were kids during a California harvest season. He regrets breaking her heart. She regrets ever giving it to...

"I would totally stow away on any ship Darlene writes about."--Book Binge WHAT THE PARROT SAW (High Seas #4): Hijacking an Englishman from a brothel is all in a day's work for Captain Mattie St. Armand. She needs protective coloration, and a naïve (and expendable) white man will keep the eyes of the authorities off her as she smuggles slaves from the Florida Territory to freedom in the Bahamas. Oliver Woodruff wanted a spot of travel in the Caribbean before he settled down, but he never expected "Marauding Mattie." He'll help her, but he knows there's no place in his world for the bastard daughter of a pirate and a freedwoman. It will take danger and adventure (and Roscoe the parrot) to convince them that the passion between them is more than an island fantasy. "I encourage you all to try this author's voice. (She has a great backlist, too.)" ---USA Today Books

Light's Book Heaven Twenty-three year old, Amari Hawke, is thrust into the world of two-soul shifters when she is injured and kidnapped by trackers outside the veil, beyond the safety of her homeland.

BOOK REVIEWS
Tools of Engagement
| Contemporary Romance

Tessa Bailey's writing is always something to behold and I've always thought that her assurance with words made her reads easier and engaging. The Hot & Hammered series however, has been so far, a hit and miss for me, though I can't ever resist the enemies-to-romance...

Ya Dark Fantasy Romance Dantalion Of The Goetia: Legacy
Angels, demons, and forbidden love interlace in this dark fantasy of Dantalion, a condemned demon from an ancient seventeenth century grimoire. He seduces a mortal college girl and practitioner of the occult named Laurel, who summons his true demonic form in the Courtyard of the Undead, creating an unexplainable relationship of love, obsession and redemption. BOOKLIFE PRIZE/BOOK REVIEW: Plot: Actually, a trilogy of books in one collection, this unique story tells of the fall and redemption of a biblical demon, and of his love with a human woman. Prose/Style: The writing is clear and easy to follow, though the biblical diction can sometimes feel stilted. The dialogue reads naturally and enhances the already meticulously detailed characterization. Originality: This story is original and rare. The author clearly researched Christian occultism during writing and used that knowledge to great effect, creating an authentic mythos that allows for an intriguing and unique plot. Character Development: Dantalion is a complex character and is well-developed over the course of the conflicts between the three books. Laurel, the human to whom Dantalion is bound, goes through tremendous transformation, although her interior journey is less dynamic. THE MIDWEST BOOK REVIEWS: "Good and evil, love and hate are such obsolutes in a non-absolute world. Tina M.E. weaves a unique story of love, corruption, redemption,and what it means in our search for something greater. 'Dantalion Of The Goetia' is a truly unique and fascinating read, very much recommended."
