Fifteen-year-old Courtney wants to be normal like her friends. But there’s something frighteningly different about her—and it’s not just the mysterious tattoo her conspiracy-obsessed grandfather marked her with when she was a child. The last thing Courtney wants to do is end up crazy and dead like her grandfather—but what about the tattoo? And the alien scouts who visit Courtney in her bedroom at night, claiming to have shared an alliance with her grandfather?
With her new friend Agatha’s apocalyptic visions, Courtney begins connecting the dots between the past, present, and future—of her bloodline, and the ancient history that surrounds it. So is she going mentally insane, like her family claimed her grandfather did, or is she actually a “chosen one” with ancestral connections to another world? Either way, Courtney has a mission: untangle her past, discover the truth, and stop the apocalypse before anyone from school finds out she’s missing.
My name is April Tate and my blood is the new gold. Vampires and hybrids have overrun my world, once vibrant with life, but now a graveyard of death shrouded in shadows. I fight to survive; I fight for my mother and brother. The journey is full of turns that I am quite unprepared for. And I’m just hoping to make it to the next Vegas sunrise…”
In a post-apocalyptic world, a viral epidemic has wiped out most of the earth’s population, leaving behind few humans but untold numbers of mutated vampires. April is a seventeen-year-old girl who lives in the remains of Las Vegas one year after the outbreak. She has become a ferocious vampire killer and after her family is abducted, she goes searching for them. What she finds is a new breed of vampire, unlike any she has seen before. Unsure of whom she can trust, she discovers that her view of the world is not as black and white as she once thought, and she’s willing to bend the rules to rescue her family. But in trying to save them, she may only succeed in bringing her fragile world crashing down around her.

Witches. Demons. Angels. Ancient prophecies and eternal wars.
Kyra Parker seems to have it all: a successful career woman, wife, and mother; she’s living the life she always wanted. But appearances are deceiving. In reality, she’s a witch who has forbidden herself from using magic—at least the powers she has control over. Only two of her closest friends know her secret—one they share.
Kyra can no longer ignore her destiny when she is exposed as the key to the end of the world. She transforms into a dark witch after reluctantly surrendering her soul to the demon, Alastor, to save her loved ones.
With her friends, Alexis and Axel, chasing her across the country in an attempt to free her from the demon’s influence, Kyra ventures ever closer to the point of no return. Her family and friends need to work together before it’s too late to save her—and the rest of the world—from the demon apocalypse.
There’s just one problem—she doesn’t want to be saved.
A dark prophecy the from the book of Revelations comes to life when angels, demons, and witches battle for fate of humanity.
Kyra Parker tries to be normal, a wife and mother, she tries to hide her witch side from everyone. She’s been having nightmares about battles between Heaven and Hell since she was a child.
Alastor is the demon who’s been searching for Kyra for years. She’s the key to unlocking the gates of Hell. If he can convince her to join him he plans on turning the tables from good to evil and then the occupants of Heaven and Hell will trade places, releasing Hell on earth. He kidnaps her and all the people she loves, threatening to kill them. She strikes a deal agreeing to join him if he promises that he won’t harm any of them ever. Now her best friend Alexis and Alexis’ brother Axel, who are both witches, must try to rescue Kyra and save the world from an apocalypse.
The prophecy is unfolding and Kyra is in the center of it all. Will Kyra and the demon win or is there hope of saving not only Kyra but the world ? How will it all end ? The answer to these and many more questions will be found in this fast paced, action packed book. I hope there’s another coming, I’d love to read more of this exciting story.

Every now and then you meet someone and instantly know they are special. This is an amazing love story of a cat named Oreo and the woman he picked to be his mom.
Oreo was famous for getting into mischief and compromising situations. You will laugh at his antics and keep wondering what he will do next!
I laughed, and I cried at this short but sweet and amazing story of the love between Caralee and her cat Oreo. She rescued Oreo from a shelter when he was a baby kitten and had 15 wonderful years with him. She tells all sorts of stories about her life with Oreo and how he made her life better. Caralee writes about the last of Oreo’s life and how leaning on her faith helps her get through this terrible loss.
This is an awesome read about the love between a woman and the cat who was her child. I definitely think if you’re going to read this you better have kleenex handy. I absolutely loved this one. 5 stars isn’t enough for this heartwarming remembrance of a beloved member of the family.

In Pursuit of Paradise
by Kate Randle
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
Ship captain Nicholas Becket knows he needs to change his playboy ways. And when he discovers beautiful divorcee Lily Kingston at a job fair for his cruise line, he thinks he has found someone who can reform him.
Lily is looking for a change of her own but she isn’t prepared for Nick and all of his baggage. Not to mention her own scars from the recent past. Although she is fiercely attracted to the handsome and dashing millionaire, an unexpected event threatens to tear them apart forever.
Can this pair of lost souls overcome the stormy waters of life’s ups and downs in order to find their true paradise?
EXCERPTS (Please choose only ONE to use with your post):
She was staring at a large poster of the ship as she was walking when without warning, she crashed head on into something, no someone. During her stumble backwards, her purse and portfolio went flying, scattering her resume, notes, and other papers everywhere. A strong arm reached around her waist, steadying her.
“Oh, I’m so sorry…” Lily said as she looked up into the most beautiful piercing blue eyes she had ever seen. They were the color of a clear sparkling ocean. The arm around her waist was firm and muscular, radiating heat. She was so close to him, she could smell the spicy scent of his aftershave, and her stomach tightened with embarrassment or lust, she couldn’t tell which. She was a bit dizzy from the sudden rush of sensory input. Trying in vain to regain her composure, she tried to speak but couldn’t find her voice. Heat rose in her face, and her cheeks were no doubt bright red as they often were when she was embarrassed like she was at this moment.
“No, it’s my fault.” His voice was deep and very sexy. “I wasn’t looking where I was going. Here, let me help you pick up your papers.” He loosened his grip on her waist, and when she was standing upright again, he released her. As the tall stranger bent down and gathered her things, Lily stared, dumbfounded. This man was gorgeous and wearing some kind of naval uniform. He had short blond hair. What would it be like to run her hands through it? Could the strands be as silky soft as she imagined? She shook her head and tried to focus.
This book is about Lily and Nick. Lily is still getting over her divorce from six months ago, and looking for a complete change. So Lily goes to apply for a job as a bouquet manager on a cruise ship. She runs into very handsome Nick and when he asks her to dinner, she finds herself agreeing, which is very unlike herself. Nick, is a ladies’ man who is used to one night stands. He has promised his father to straighten up his act, and he is trying, but he feels Lily is worth pursuing, even though she is very different from the normal women he is attracted to. Lily agrees to spend the night with Nick, despite her misgivings, but when she awakes in the middle of the night she feels it was a huge mistake. Now can Nick win her back over with everything he has going on in his family? Will Lily get over her divorce enough to trust again, and is Nick worthy of that trust? Read and see.
This book is great. WARNING: The book has sexual situations in the book. This is for mature readers. The characters seem to come alive very quickly. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a second time romance. This is also a great story for anyone who loves their bad boy makes good.
I’m giving this book 5 hearts

The smoke is clearing on the lawn of Angelica’s newly blown up home. We see that the center of the home is completely missing, but the further away from the blast site there’s less and less damage.
The soldiers, who have been blown in different directions and have various stages of injuries, are getting up or waking up from being knocked out from the blast.
John is helping Becky up.
Moses: How ya doin’, girl?
Becky: What happened?!!
Soldiers have come together on the lawn. There’s holes and burn marks on their uniforms. One of them is holding pressure on a pretty bad cut on another’s arm.
John: Is everyone OK?
David: Define “OK”!!
Cecilia: Where’s Angelica?
Samson: Last I saw, she was being dragged off to that helicopter by what I can only describe as demons from hell! I mean, did everyone else see what I saw?
Moses talking, but with a memory bubble of the demons attacking.
Moses: Oh, I saw them, all right! Pretty much the scariest moments of my life!
All are looking puzzled.
Becky to Cecilia (or the group): Why did they zero-in on Angelica? Why not
any of us?!
David is speaking to the group.
David: I think I can answer that one, though I’m not sure how…!
John: What do you mean? Did you overhear them or something?
David: No. I mean, I know “why” they took her, but no one told me. It was like I
could read their minds…but even “more” than that. It was like I could just feel their intentions!
Soldiers are looking at each other skeptically.
David: Look, I know what you’re thinking. I’m not crazy, OK?! I can’t explain
it to you, but I’m telling you the truth!
Samson speaks to David.
Samson: (quietly) Look man, we’re not judging you. ALL of this is just a little
tough to take in…
Moses: Totally!! I mean, did you see those things?! THEY WERE DEMONS!
I was like, “Oh no you didn’t…!!!” when that hell-spawned, head monster grabbed Angelica!

The novel “Drone World” is set in a futuristic dystopian city like the books of Divergent or Maze Runner. The book’s content is similar to the movies ‘Minority Report’ (predicting crime) meets ‘Logan’s Run’ (authority determines when you die).
This book is topical – it looks at a city where drone technology is common place. Today drones are part of our lives from the military to enforcement to entertainment. Not just outside our windows – everywhere we live, eat, shop and the many forms they take.
Imagine a city with cameras on every corner, monitoring your every move. A world where no crime goes unpunished, no criminal can escape. No place you can hide.
I live in the safest city in the world . . . until I tried to leave it.

An ancient legend spanning eras, continents, and worlds. To some, it’s nothing more than a dream. To others, a pretty fairy tale handed down through the generations.
For those in critical need of their own happy ending, a gift.
For sheltered Lily Kiers, it’s all too real. Her escape from danger, straight into the arms of her destiny.
Thrust into a realm made of fantasy and unbridled passion, Lily faces violent resentment and jealousy from extremely powerful enemies. Amidst fierce creatures whose very existence defy all common sense, Lily pieces together a past she could never have imagined.
Claimed by Kord, Prince of Battle Draconian, their love will not be denied, even as malevolent forces plot to rip them apart.
The power of her passion, twining through him, almost brought Kord to his knees. He wanted to take her down to the lush grass, peel the silky tunic from her perfect breasts, and caress every inch of her skin. All his good intentions to be patient were on the verge of crumbling.
His dragon’s insistence that he claim her here and now severely tested his control. The last thread of his resistance slipped away.
“Lily,” he groaned against her lips, cupping her soft breast in his palm.
“Yes.” She arched and shuddered, seeking another kiss, opening wider for his tongue. Her nails dug into his shoulders.
The realm, the games, his impending challenge . . . it all spun away as he lost himself in Lily’s kisses. Her passion drove him mad with want. Until he finally gathered enough brain control to remember his promise to proceed with patience, and managed to break the kiss.
The needy purr she formed of his name, pierced his heart.
“I’m thinking Prince Big Bro could use some cooling off.” The voice, tinged with familiar, cheerful sarcasm, infiltrated Kord’s fogged senses.
He lifted his head and stared dumbly at his annoying brother, then glanced at Lily, who looked as dazed as he felt.
Bakka flashed a grin as he swept into an expansive bow, bending low.
