'Coven' Book Release Blast


Coven
Elise Michaels Series # 1
By- K.A. Young
Publication Date- October 4th, 2013


Elise Michaels' motto has always been: no guts, no glory. She is a thrill seeker, continually craving excitement and adventure. The idea of being tied down to a place or man never interested her, even though a betrothal spell was cast linking her and the Head of Council’s son when they were mere infants.
Being a distant third in succession to assume the Head Mistress role, she felt confidant that her secret would remain in her past along with Coven life. Unfortunately, nothing in our fun loving heroine’s future is anything she or anyone from the supernatural realm is prepared for.
Now, she’s forced to return to the place and the Sorcerer she so desperately sought to forget.
Elise has no idea the power and gifts that await her. Can she let go of her own desires and embrace her new role? Or will she surrender to the faceless evil coming for them all?

Book one in the tantalizing Elise Michaels Series a spinoff of The Nephilim Warrior Series.

Excerpt
 

The loud roar of a tractor in the lane, and then an incessant tooting of a horn abruptly cut her daydreams short. She jumped up and looked over the garden fence to the road below. There was the huge red machine, inches behind her fiesta, inside sat a large dark haired man scowling in the cab. She opened the gate and ran down the path, smiling she started to make apologetic noises that dried in her throat as he jumped out of the cab and roared at her. “What the fuck do you think you are doing parking in the middle of the lane?”

If he had not put her back up with his foul mouthed tirade, she may have had time to notice how his lean muscular body was bursting from the open shirt roughly tucked into fading jeans that covered strong, long legs. She would have admired his square jaw and high cheekbones covered by skin tanned from years working outside, or the way he tossed his unruly dark hair away from his deep blue eyes with a flick of his head.

But no, all she could see was some uncouth local, bad mouthing her because she had the audacity to park her car outside her cottage.

She glared back at him and replied with ice cool politeness. “This is a private lane and I have every right to park my car outside my property”. There that told him.

He walked towards her, his six foot two frame towering over her and continued to glare. “If you had bothered to read your property documents thoroughly, you would have seen that my farm has a right of way down this lane to the field at the end, so you will have to park your car on the grass verge”.

She glared back, her temper rising, “Well, if you had knocked on my door and asked politely I might have been of a mind to move it, but as you don’t appear to have a polite bone in your body you can whistle pal”. And with that she turned on her heel and marched back up the path to her cottage, slamming the gate shut she shot inside before he could reply.

Liam jumped down from his tractor and strode across the yard towards the farmhouse, his mind was in turmoil and he took no notice of his labs bouncing around to welcome him back. He went straight to the fridge, grabbed a bottle of bud, twisted off the top and took a long swig, letting the ice cold beer slide down his throat. He walked through to the living room and slumped down into his favourite old armchair.

What the hell was going on? He couldn’t understand how this girl had got under his skin so quickly. But he could still feel the pain as his insides had twisted, at the sight of her locked in the arms of Rory down on the beach. He ran one hand through his unruly hair as he tried to make sense of what had happened.
 

He closed his eyes and let out a long breath, remembering the vow he made as he stood beside the graves of his family. He was determined to keep the farm going and continue the good work his father and brother had started. There was no way he would ever open himself up to having anyone else grow so close to him, only to lose them. He knew he would not be able to bear what was left of his heart being torn apart. But as he sat there, he couldn’t stop the images of Beth on the beach, her shrieks of laughter as she was pushed into the water and oh the sight of her in that wet top.
 

He felt his jeans tighten as his body responded to the images and he groaned in frustration. Maybe celibacy wasn’t the way to go, perhaps all he needed was a night of meaningless sex to lighten his mood and get her out of his brain.

Liam woke the next morning with Beth still fast asleep on top of him. To his dismay he was sporting a major hard on and cursed his anatomy under his breath. He tried to shift position to ease the tightness of his jeans, but Beth squirmed on top of him, which just made matters worse. “Shit!” He muttered as he took as sharp intake of breath.
He attempted to take his mind off the beautiful redhead draped over him, by going over what jobs he needed to get done that day….speak to Joe about the top field, call the farm supplies to order fertiliser….. Beth sighed in her sleep and her warm breath tickled his neck. Nope that wasn’t going to work.
 
He cringed at the thought of Beths reaction to waking up on top of him in his present condition, so tried counting in his head.
Beth groaned as she started to wake up, she didn’t remember her mattress being this uncomfortable, perhaps her duvet had got caught underneath her. She pushed up with her hands and wiggled her hips trying to dislodge the lump, and was startled by a small yelp by her ear. She opened one eye and found herself staring into those deep blue eyes of….. “Liam?” She gasped trying to push herself up further.
“Don’t move!” Growled Liam.
“Wh.. what? Why?” She asked opening both eyes.
 
As she focussed on Liam’s face she noticed that he seemed to be in pain, his face was contorted and his cheeks flushed.
 
 
He watched as she stared at him in confusion, and saw the flush creep up her cheeks as realisation dawned and leapt off him.
Groaning in pain he grabbed her hand before she could storm off. “Hey! Don’t get the wrong idea. I woke up like this, it doesn’t mean anything.”
She glared at him whilst trying to pull her hand out of his strong grip.
“Well that’s reassuring.” She snapped.
He took in her indignant scowl and made what could be a rash decision, but hey, he was damned whatever he did or said. Using his superior strength, he pulled her back on top of him a locked his lips on hers.

My Review 5 Star
First I just wanted to say that this is the first book that I read from this author, and I felt in love with it, I couldn’t put the book down and I couldn’t stop giggling , I really had fun reading this book and I really enjoy it  this book just made me want to read more couldn’t get enough.
I love the characters of this story and love it how each character have their own unique way.
I love the main characters Beth and Liam I love how they had the chemistry from the starts, and love it how they get alone with each other, and how they both trust one another.
 love how Beth and Liam met each other for the first time, I have to say I really was laughing while reading this part, Beth had just finish moving in to the cottage that she is renting, and  she is unpacking her boxes when she hear  a tractor pulling up behind her car, that’s when she get to see Liam, now Liam is not really happy and he ends up telling Beth to move her car and not to block the rode, he said it with such an attitude and that just got Beth angry, Beth turned around and gave Liam a peace of her mind and let him with his mouth hanging open, I just love it when they both go at it and argue back and forth, but that’s how it is I love how they end up falling in love with each other.
I love the character of Beth, she is always running away from love, and form life and relationship. She had a bad experience when she was just fourteen years old, and that made her be the way she is now, even though she's being through so much she always with a smile on her face and love hear attitude.
Love the character of Liam now what cant I say about him. Liam was always young and free and always being single. Liam also being through so much after a horrible tragic he change a lot that the only thing that he is caring for is trying to keep the family farm going. Love his attitude the one that he always walking straight up and not give a crap of what other thinks of Liam is such a sweetheart.
 I want to thank author Emmie Lou Kates for introducing me to this amazing characters and this awesome book, can’t wait to read more of your books and I hope that you get to enjoy and love this story as much as I did.

Cover Reveal‏ of Star of Bethlehem

 
 
 
Title:Star of Bethlehem
By: Sarah Daltry
 
 

Jack and Lily have found each other. In this short holiday novella, Jack finally meets Lily's family and friends. And she tries to merge her life and her past with his. 

On New Year's Eve, Jack and Lily look forward to the new year ahead of them. Join them as they start to grow together. 

This is a part of the Flowering series and directly follows the events of Forget Me Not/Lily of the Valley. Another full length novel will come later as well.

 
 

Excerpt:

“I have a present for you,” she says
 
“I told you. I want nothing but you.”
 
“I know, but I’m excited. First, though…”
“Yeah.”

This is terrifying. If I screw this up, it could ruin everything. We haven’t been together that long and although I am trying to trust in us, I wonder if Lily could stay with me if her parents hate me. What if they hate me?

She kisses me quickly on the lips and then on the tip of my nose. I somehow feel both ten and hungry for her. She’s still so amazing to me.

“They are going to love you,” she says.

“Then why are you so nervous?”

“What if you hate them?”

I hug her and breathe in her hair. “I could never hate anything that you are. We might come from totally different worlds, princess, but every part of you is beautiful.”
