The Keeper of Dragons, The Prince Returns
by
J.A. Culican
@jaculican
YA Fantasy
and
Int’l Bestselling Author

blurb2

A mystical calling.

On his 18th birthday, Cole’s learns that he is a dragon fated to save all that was deemed true.

Destiny.

Cole’s life spirals into an uncontrollable battle for life or death. First, he learns that his family isn’t really his own and his birth parents are dragons. With that legacy comes a special calling; devoting an eternity to protecting all true beings from creatures bent on controlling the Earth and bringing an end to dragons.

Danger.

As the newly-minted Prince of Ochana, Cole is also the Keeper of Dragons and his first task is to keep the nefarious farro-fallen fairies-at bay. With no formal training, no control of his mahier-dragon magic, and fear like he’s never experienced before, will Cole be able to reach outside of his human side and embrace his destiny in time to defeat the farros?

Join bestselling author, J.A. Culican on an epic fantasy adventure fans and critics are calling a world of magic, and comparing to Robert Jordan.

excerpt1

“Let’s go.” Jericho commanded, clearly displeased with my train of thought.

I nodded and followed after him, but my mind still raced. What would happen now? How was I supposed to protect everyone? As we strode through Ochana, I looked around at the other dragons, mostly Siens, who had no idea they were in any danger. The dragons laughed and chatted like it was any old day, and any old time, not one fear. They continued on with their usual activities; setting up and running their open-aired market stands, puffing out large flames of fire with their mouths so they could cook meals for each other, flying low in pods as they soaked up the glory and beauty of Ochana. And each of these dragon’s lives were in my hands. I needed to get my head on straight.

“Finally.” Jericho stated.

It was only one word, but enough to blaze a fire inside me. If this were all true, I had to find strength. I needed to train. I needed to know what I was up against. I turned to Jericho as we walked through town. “What other creatures can wield mahier?

“Only dragons. But there are other creatures that wield different forms of energy. Depending on the creature, each have their own names, but in human terms, I guess you would call it magic.” He shook his head in nausea, as if he detested human words for dragonic considerations.

“These creatures, what are they?”

“We need to focus on the others that would help the Carnites. There aren’t many, Carnites on their own are easily defeated, and not easy to form an alliance with. But two creatures come to mind, farro and elden. We need to make contact with them. Get a sense for what they’re worth-”

We arrived at command, which interjected Jericho’s vocal declarations. I thought about the farro and elden. I had never heard of them, ever. I concocted all sorts of images for what they could look like, maybe large brown beasts with razor sharp teeth and monster claws, the kind of evil creature that would haunt a small child’s nightmares and make them too frightened to rest their head on a pillow ever again.

At least we knew where to look for these magical imps, but what would happen when we found them?

J.A. Culican

Featured Book: The Keeper of Dragons, The Prince Returns

Hi all!! My name is J.A. Culican. I am a mom of four, a teacher and I write YA fantasy novels!

How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?
I’ve always enjoyed writing. I published my first novel The Keeper of Dragons just last year. The reactions I’ve received from fans all over the world has been amazing! I decided to publish this book particularly for my kids. My oldest begged me for the book. So of course I wrote it for her.

How did you come up with this storyline?
It was a story I made up as a bedtime story for my children. It evolved from there and The Keeper of Dragons was born.

What inspires you to write?
My kids, and their love of all things magical.

How did you conduct your research for The Keeper of Dragons?
It’s purely a fantasy novel, so not much research was needed. I did have to double check geographical facts around the world. Those facts I double checked by visiting the country or cities websites.

Favorites from The Keeper of Dragons:
My main character is relatable. He is just an average/typical 18 year old. Who wakes up one morning and finds out that nothing about himself is typical.

What would your friends say is your best quality?
Laid back. I’m a go with the flow type of person.

Are reader reviews important to you?
Yes. Obviously it’s great when someone loves you books. On the flip side when I receive a negative review it gives me a chance to reflect and grow within my writing.

What is your writing process?
I just write. I don’t outline or plan. I literally just sit down and go.

What do you do when you don’t write?
I am at teacher by day and a mom to four kiddos. I am also the President of a non-profit organization Puzzle Peace United. This organization helps families with children on the autism spectrum. www.puzzlepeaceunited.org

If you could share one thing about yourself that you would like readers to know what would it be?
I’m just like everyone else!

Wow, thanks for having me! To find out more about me, check out my website www.jaculican.com.

Redemption
by
Laxmi Hariharan
@HariharanLaxmi
Award-Winning
New York Times and
Int’l Bestselling Author

blurb2

Mikhail Anton Ray: I needed her to fulfill my destiny but she became my life.

Leana Iyeroy: I’ll never submit to a vampire or another shifter – but he is so much more than either.

Micah must mate with wolf-shifter Leana to harness their collective energies, and overcome the vampire built mind-net that has infiltrated the humans robbing them of their emotions. But when Leana’s ward is kidnapped and used against them, the future of humanity is at stake.

excerpt1

Mikhail looks at the shifter girl as she passes by him, so close that if he put out his hand he can touch her cheek. Touch that skin shining with sweat, and pale under her tan as if it’s taking all she has just to keep the pain at bay.

She adjusts the strap of the scabbard that crosses between her breasts, and his eyes fall on the rise-fall-rise of her chest. Over the swell of the vest that stretches tight across, outlining her nipples.

And despite the fact that she doesn’t even notice him, despite the fact that he’s surrounded by jostling crowds, Mikhail finds himself aroused.

Heat twists his gut with such suddenness that he gasps.

It’s the second time he’s surprised himself in the space of an hour. The first was when he’d seen the girl fall to the ground in the cage… and not move.

He was sure she’d be up on her feet and downing her sword at the brute hybrid coming at her, but she hadn’t.

She’d just lain there still, so still he’d been sure she had been hurt badly or worse that she’d been killed. And before he could stop himself, before he’d even known what he’d been doing he’d run through the crowd, breaking through to the front and then he’d felled the guard at the entrance to the cage with one blow. Had taken the keys from him, unlocked the gate, slammed it behind him and had run towards the fallen figure all in a matter of seconds.

As he’d leant over her she’d moaned and something tightly clenched inside him had relaxed.

She was alive.

author-interview1

Laxmi Hariharan

Featured Book: Redemption

Hello from London 🙂

Hello and welcome, Laxmi; so nice to have you here. How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?
I’ve been writing since very young and with intent from 2003. Published my first book in 2011

How did you come up with this storyline?
I wanted to write a paranormal story with a difference. Set in a futuristic Bombay where I grew up, dystopian, yet intense and romantic. Borrowing from the threads of Indian mythology yet spanning both Eastern and Western cultures.

What are the best and the worst aspects of writing?
Writing helps me plumb the depths of my consciousness. By understanding character motivations I understand my own.

What inspires you to write?
The ‘aha’ moment from breaking a character and rebuilding him or her back and understanding why they do what they do. And hence understanding why I do what I do in life.

How did you conduct your research for Redemption?
I look for the key emotion that will be the theme of the book. In this case it was Leana and Mikhail finding Redemption. Leana putting an end to the cycle or the curse that has plagued her ancestral line for centuries.

What are 3 of your favorite quotes from Redemption?
Opening of Redemption is my fave: One of us is going to die. He looks at me, the beast. Wolf. Man. Wolf? He’s both. He’s neither. He’s just like me.

More Favorites from Redemption:
I’ll give you a poem from Feral, the first book in this series for the main character of Feral and later Taken is a soldier poet You
are the only person I wish I had never met. I suspect if you knew you might have more respect for me now than you did then.

So strike a fracture through this glass this view this thing that shimmers like doubt between us, break it apart with your hands.

What would your friends say is your best quality?
My persistence

Are reader reviews important to you?
Yes they are hugely important in discoverability especially on Amazon. But I am too scared to look at them. I don’t want to get too demotivated by the not great ones or too affected by praise either. So instead I look for feedback from my beta readers who are amazing.

What do you do when you don’t write?
I like to be active – work out, yoga, walking in London and gardening and spending time with my film maker husband watching films and series.

Tell us about your other books?
Feral the first in the Many Lives Series is my favorite. About Maya a wolf girl who leaves her mate Luke to go in search of her blood family. Only to uncover secrets.

If you could share one thing about yourself that you would like readers to know what would it be?
That I hope my words will move them and help them understand themselves better. That I hope they will see a bit of themselves in my characters.

I hope you’ll read Feral the first book in this series. If you join my newsletter you’ll get Feral for free.

Broken Treaty
by
Xyla Turner
@xylaturner
Award-Winning
and
Int’l Bestselling Author

blurb2

Jessica Cayman is an ambitious Account Executive for Delancey, Inc. She stays in her lane, works hard and has her eyes set on becoming a partner within the next year. The plan is easy until Sage Wesley,III from The Company refuses to work with her.

His aversion to Jessica turns into a kiss that literally has both of them off their feet. Floating in midair? Then a bite on her neck?

There are too many secrets and Jessica soon finds herself in the middle of an old war between vampires and hunters all because of broken treaties.

excerpt1

(Sage’s internal strength is wearing thin as he tries to stay away from Jessica. However, he finds himself at her office and all bets are off)

I slammed the door, stood there in front and took off my gloves. If I had to have a lasting impression on my hands and body, it would be hers.

“What are you doing here?” She turned at the slamming of the door, then stood up.

“I had to see you.” I ground my teeth as I held back with a serious amount of restraint.

“Are you alright?” She asked.

“No,” I growled. “I’m not alright.”

She rounded the desk and started walking towards me.

“Oh my God, what’s wrong?”

“Stop,” I snapped and held up my hand.

I was hanging on by a fucking thread. It felt like I had been in the sun for hours and was about to combust. What was happening to me?

“What have you done?” I growled at her. “Ever since you came around, I’ve been fucked up. Your scent…”

I stopped myself because she would think I was bat-shit crazy. Well, I felt like I was going to be.

“What? Scent? Do you need me to call an ambulance?” She was becoming frantic.

Her heart rate increased, and her brows came together in confusion.

I took a deep breath in an attempt to gain my composure. “No, I’m fine.”

She inched towards me again with one hand out.

“Sage, can I take a look at you? You don’t look good.”

She was so close her scent stung my nostrils, and if I had tear ducts, they would have leaked. Her hand touched my face, and I knew that presence would stay there for days. Lifting my chin, I looked at her through hooded eyes.

I could not help it. Shit, I did not want to help any of it. Jessica was who I wanted, and that was that.

I grabbed her wrist and jerked her towards me. My lips crashed down on hers and for a brief moment, she submitted to me and let me take my fill of her. Her lips were soft, pliable and open for me. My hands began to roam her body and landed on her ass so that I could feel that for days. Her hands gripped both of my arms right before she abruptly pulled back.

Her fingers immediately went to touch her lips as those wide dark eyes stared at me with shock, horror and surprise.

“What the hell is wrong with you?” She gasped.

Then without any warning at all, she smacked me right across the face.

“I can’t believe you.” She looked at her hand, almost surprised that she used it. “Oh my God.”

author-interview1

Xyla Turner

Featured Book: Broken Treaty

Hey Everybody, my name is Xyla Turner and I’m a new romance author who has decided to spread her wings in the many different genres that I’ve grown to love. I’m so excited that you’ve taken the time to tune in about my story that is included in the Dark Legends, this awesome, box set.

Hello, Xyla! You had me at mid-air sex scene! But, let’s get started. How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?

I’ve been writing since I was a teenager but I finally published an inspirational and
children’s book in 2012. My first romance novel, The Chase, was published in 2015 and it was inspired through a bit of internal unrest. I was at a crossroads in my life and didn’t know what to do. So, I decided to either write about what I wanted for my life or sit and cry about it all. Thankfully, I decided to write and four days later, fifty-five thousand words were written and I haven’t stopped writing since.

How did you come up with this storyline?

This storyline was in connection with a collaboration with two awesome authors, Olivia
Gaines and Tiana Laveen. We had central connecting characters who were at the same company but they were very strange and supernatural. My book, Broken Treaty, features Sage, a one-hundred and thirty-year old vampire who meets a woman, that is not from his tribe and she has him breaking all the rules. I love when strong men are broken by the natural wiles of their true mate.

What are the best and the worst aspects of writing?

The best aspects of writing include creating a new world that you enter in and can build from scratch with your own ideas. The funny part about that, is the characters have a mind of their own, so I guess it’s not entirely your world. The worst aspects of writing for me is the aftermath. After, I type “The End,” the hard work starts. Edits, edits and more edits. Reading, reading and more reading, more edits, more drafts and the cycle seems to never end. This work, for me, is tedious.

What inspires you to write?

Life! I need nothing but to walk down my street to think of a story. My inspiration to write is really to get the stories and characters out of my head. Tell their story, so that in some small way, so many of our own stories are told. It’s something to read about a character that is ‘you’. I love when readers can connect but I love when they say, ‘that is me.’ It reminds us we’re not alone in the world.

How did you conduct your research for Broken Treaty?

This was my first paranormal romance, so I did a variety of research including online searches, re-watching a few of my favorite vampire movies again, checked out some paranormal books and asking readers their thoughts about major changes to vampire’s stories. It was interesting that readers were not open for alterations of the traditional vampire.

Name a Favorite from Broken Treaty:

Mid-air sex scene. Enough said. 🙂


What would your friends say is your best quality?

My friends think I have an active imagination, I’m a problem solver and I have great ideas.


Are reader reviews important to you?

Oddly enough, reader’s reviews are important to me. As I said before, I’m a fairly new author, so the more constructive feedback, the better.

What do you do when you don’t write?

Usually, I hang out with my family, my nieces and nephews, catch up on my television shows or do some sort of extreme sport.

Tell us about your other books?

Most of my other books are about alpha men and the sassy women who tame them. They are diverse, sexy and for grown people. I’m starting another series in another genre, New Adult, that will feature the collegiate atmosphere but also incorporate sexy characters and the growing pains of adulthood.

If you could share one thing about yourself that you would like readers to know what would it be?

My motto is Switch the Style Up and this is something that I’ve done as an author because I don’t like to be boxed into one category. So, I encourage readers to do the same. Switch It Up.

Thanks for having me and I look forward to hearing from you all about the stories in this set. I would encourage you to check out Broken Treaty, so you can meet Sage & Jessica! 🙂

Upcoming Ratings System

Hey y’all!

So I’m back from my week away at Universal Orlando and Disney feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the world. My upcoming book schedule looks like I’ll be preparing The Collector’s Treasure for my editor, and then I’ll dive right into Loki’s book, which will be book 5 of Dawn of the Dragons. I’ll introduce new characters there and also show you updates on special people you love.

Now, the reason I’m making this post is to discuss something I discovered. Recently when I released Beauty and the Beast, I imagined the ‘adult fairytale’ tagline would indicate it was a mature rated book. While the sex scene isn’t graphic (if you’ve read Loved by the Dragon you know how graphic I can be), it’s still present. Still, someone was startled to discover it wasn’t a clean romance.

I do not write clean romance. Not under this name. There will be some clean romances in the future possibly as my other pen but this isn’t it.

I thought to myself though that maybe I should create a ratings system.

If compared to Loved by the Dragon, which is a 5, I’d consider Beauty and the Beast a tame 2.  Below is my new system and some examples of which books fit that criteria.

1 – No scenes of a sensual nature. Everything Fades to Black and is assumed to have occurred.

2 – One sensual scene or fewer with without the use of explicit words. Euphemisms mostly. (Beauty and the Beast)

3 – Two to three intimate scenes integral to plot.  Mild but not explicit language. (Making Waves)

4 – Explicit words to describe parts during 2-4 intimate scenes of moderate length. Most sex is integral to plot progression between characters. (Crush – Dawn of the Dragons 3, The Wild Operatives Series)

5 – Explicit words  to describe parts during intimate scenes. Steamy and hot, longer sex scenes in detailed description that occur multiple times. (Impractical Magic, Training the Alpha, Loved by the Dragon)

Beauty and the Beast is a smashing success!

0062-BeautyAndTheBeast-Small

BUY IT AT AMAZON US

BUY IT AT AMAZON UK

Princess Anastasia Rose dreams of attending school, but her plans are put on hold when war begins between her father and the beastly lord of a nearby castle in the mountains.
Prince Alistair isn’t an ordinary dragon. He’s a shifter afflicted by a curse, unable to become human again until he finds his true love. When a mortal king’s adventurers trespass in Alistair’s territory to steal a rare flower, the prince decides to steal a valuable prize of his own.

I never imagined Beauty and the Beast would become such a raving success. You don’t know what your support means to me. I am so happy I could float on clouds!

I see a lot of reviews stating they’d like to see a certain other special someone get the man fo her dreams. Well. I’m not adverse to that, but first, I have a few other fairytales to write before I can return to this world.

My future plans involve rewriting fairytales in two different worlds. One will be in the world I created for Beauty and the Beast, and the other world will be my usual Vivienne Savage world. Yes, the same world where Saul, Ian, Teo, and the rest of our friends live! So yes, some of my fairy tales will be modern. I have a fantastic Cinderella story to tell!

Beauty and the Beast is available on paperback now and will be available at the other digital markets in January.

Dark Legends Boxed Set Author Spotlight: New Order by H.J. Lawson

 
New Order
by
H.J. Lawson 
@hjlawson1
Award-Winning
and
Int’l Bestselling Author

They were born to fight.
Created to win.
But the question remains…
Who’s the real enemy?
When Sadie heads out for the night, she hardly expects to
witness a murder–much less a murder committed by a dangerous vampire with a
thirst for vengeance and destruction. Within a few hours, Sadie and her
boyfriend Aaron are pulled into a violent vampire world. Searching for a way to
survive, they know they must fight, but this might be a battle they just can’t
win.
 
A door slams open, startling me from my deep sleep. I
shiver. It feels like Aaron is brushing a feather over my cheek. Blindly, I pat
the side of the bed where he was lying. He’s still there, sleeping.
I don’t feel alone. I don’t think we are… I listen carefully
for any foreign sound in the room. There’s a God-awful smell, like something
crawled up somewhere and died.
            I can hear
heavy breathing by the door. There is someone else in our room.
            “What the
hell?” I try to shove Aaron awake.
            I reach for
the light, knocking down empty cans on the nightstand. The lights buzz as they
warm up before turning on.
            “Aaron!” I
scream just as the lights come on and illuminate the horror in front me. My
screams startle Aaron awake.
It’s the man from earlier this evening, the one whose crisp
white fangs were dripping with blood. He’s in our room.
He’s here for me.
I’m next.
His eyes burn into my soul as if he’s trying to control me.
“You are mine now,” the intruder says.
 “This room is taken,”
Aaron says as he rises from the bed and stands with his naked chest puffed out.
He’s just wearing his boxers. I’m wearing his white button-up shirt and my
panties. It was the only thing I could find last night without turning on the
lights.
“I can see,” the intruder says, raising his eyebrows at me. He
rakes back his hair.
“It’s the man from the street!” My voice breaks as I yell. My
heart races. I pull my legs up towards me and away from him, my hands
trembling.
He cracks his neck sideways, leers at me, and steps forward,
his eyes locked on mine, as if he’s an eagle hunting his prey.
“Dude. Get out of our room,” Aaron says angrily.
The man’s attention remains on me.
A bloodcurdling scream rips through the uncomfortable
silence of our room. It sounded like it came from the room next door. Who’s in
there? What’s happening? The need to get out of this room is overwhelming.
Our intruder smiles at the sound of the scream as if it’s
his favorite sound. My body is shaking as if I have been outside all night and
the blood in my veins is frozen.
Aaron’s shoulders tense up as he stands in front of the man.
“If you know what’s good for you, you’d leave.” He tries to push the intruder,
but before Aaron can touch him, the intruder grips Aaron’s forearms.
My heartbeat races. My heart feels like it’s going to
explode. “Get off him.”
With one swift movement of the intruder’s wrist, Aaron is
launched through the air. Aaron’s body crashes against a wooden wardrobe;
splinters fly out as it crumbles under his weight. The remains of the wardrobe
collapse forward, pinning Aaron to the floor. The movement is too quick to
process. “Aaron!”
His hand is sticking out. Crimson blood drips down Aaron’s wrist.
The intruder’s head turns towards Aaron’s bloody hand so
fast that it looks like his neck could break. His mouth opens, revealing his
sharp white fangs. He lazily drags his tongue across his top lip.
This cannot be real. Vampires don’t exist.

Hello…
 
Hello, Hayley, welcome. So happy to have you here today, so let’s get started. How long have you been a writer and how did you come to
writing? 
I’ve been writing for two and a half years. I had a story in my head
and just couldn’t get it out of my head. Since that day I’ve had more ideas
everyday.
 
How did you come up with this storyline? 
I liked the idea
of a new twist on a vampire story, one in which the vampires aren’t the really
enemy, but the government is.  
 
What are the best and the worst aspects of writing? 
Best
is getting lost in a world, researching new ideas. Worst is all the ideas! I
really have too many, I could write a new book every day if I had time.
 
What inspires you to write? 
Readers, I love reading
reviews and reading how they enjoyed the adventure that I took them on.
 
How did you conduct your research for New Order? 
I
research locations, characters, and vampires.
 
What would your friends say is your best quality? 
That I
never give up.
 
Are reader reviews important to you? 
That’s why writers write, to entertainment readers.
 
What do you do when you don’t write? 
I work as a
designer, and in my free time  hang out
with family and like watching movies.
Tell us about your other books? I’ve got a fun adventure
time travel series, science fiction, thriller, I have a book for everyone.
 
If you could share one thing about yourself that you
would like readers to know what would it be? 
I’m hoping one day my dreams will
come true and I will be a full time author living in Spain, enjoying time with
my family.
 
Thank you so much for sharing a little piece of yourself with our readers and fans. We loved having you here today.
Happy reading.
