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...

50% Off Award-winning Sci-fi Romance Angel Fierce
Don't miss Book 2 in the Azura Chronicles. 50% off at Smashwords. Book 3 is coming in September. "I've become a real fan of Ms. Schartz' sci-fi with a spin of paranormal stories. Action-packed twists and blooming romance fill each chapter to the point I didn't want to stop reading it. I adore her planet, Azura, and the abilities of her Avenging Angels, but even above those, her two main story-stars, Maksou and Urielle, take the lead. Truth beyond all…especially when one can't lie. Love it! I will be reading more of this author, entertaining and intriguing, along with vivid, intense action…plus the fact, this author knows her sci-fi." Something's rotten on the angel planet. When Avenging Angels turn up dead, Urielle, their Legion Commander, suspects the handsome intruder brought unspeakable evil to Azura. Maksou never met a woman he couldn't seduce. He came to the forbidden planet to rescue his friends and get rich in the process, but the jungle crawls with lethal life forms… including a gorgeous warrior angel, who saves his life but keeps him prisoner and challenges his irresistible charm. Urielle, sworn to protect Azura at all costs, has no use for a maverick who ignores the rules and endangers the planet… no matter how attractive. Especially when the Galactic Trade Alliance (GTA) wages a secret war to get their greedy hands on the priceless crystal at Azura's core.

The Gamekeeper's Daughter
Queen Victoria's top assassin, Lord Alexander Stokes harbors his fair share of dark secrets. Chief among them his membership in an elite brothel. When a damsel-in-distress appeals for his help, he ponders the consequences, yet her similarity to his first love intrigues him. He offers to help her with a single condition: that the beauty consents to be his chattel for an entire year. Given no choice, Julia agrees to his terms. Anything is better than going to the gallows for a murder she did not commit, especially when the real killer is stalking her. Despite her misgivings about being the masked man's chattel, his raw masculine power lures her in like a hawk to her falconer. Can they learn to trust one another and live long enough to know true love?
Bride Of Mist Is Here!
Book 3 of The Warrior Daughters of Rivenloch has arrived. A medieval Scottish lass trained in martial arts stalks a dangerous foe and tangles with the most unlikely of Highland heroes in this Scottish historical romance! After a Highlander savagely attacks her clan, mysterious and elusive Feiyan la Nuit knows she is the only warrior lass with the skills to track down the villain--and the nerve to assassinate him. But when she flinches at coldblooded murder, he seizes the advantage, unmasking her and taking her hostage. The son of a laird, Dougal mac Darragh never intended to wage war with the infamous Rivenlochs, nor is he the kind of man to hurt a lass, but now his only hope to keep his clan safe is to ransom his beautiful captive. Soon a brutal secret comes to light, one that threatens both their clans, and they discover that only by joining forces--and hearts--in a desperate battle will they truly prove that love conquers all.

The Final Dawn
| Romantic Science Fiction/Futuristic

3.5 stars rounding up... As much as I've been following Jess Anastasi's Atrophy series, THE FINAL DAWN is far from a standalone and having read the previous Atrophy books a long time ago, catching up without having a re-read of the previous instalments...

The Love Hypothesis
| Contemporary Romance

THE LOVE HYPOTHESIS is a really delightful one. And I'd thought that this would be a 5-star read throughout from the start when the fake-dating trope takes off under somewhat unusual circumstances. Done in the sole context of academia (surly, hot professor...

A Royal Disaster
| Contemporary Romance

A ROYAL DISASTER is a fun, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy. Elena hadn't the best luck, with Murphy's Law in full working order. Her business was failing, her ex was suing her, and goodness, she just poured paint over a much-loved and celebrated royal....

The Engagement Arrangement

Love Scenes

I'm not so sure that Angie Hockman's SHIPPED is really a love child of Sally Thorne's "The Hating Game" and Christina Lauren's "The Unhoneymooners" as it's touted to be, but the blurb is an appealing one. An adventure in the Galapagos with a rival colleague?...

Prophecy of the Mayan Undead

The Water of Life

She's Won't Be Swayed From Mission. No Matter How Sexy They Are.
What do you get when you cross a whip-welding, mask-wearing vigilante and a set of uber-wealthy telepathic twins, with a serial killer out for vengeance? The end of the world. Well, the end of the world as they know it. After surviving a plane crash that left them with telepathic powers that bounds them together as one emotional collective, twins Ethan and Ronan Daniels have struggled with how to fit into their new reality. Especially Ethan, who relies on his brother to keep the voices in his head from driving him insane. A brief stint with the crime-fighting group the Evolutioneers gave them hope that there was a place for them. And when a cry in the night for help brings them face to face with a mask-wearing woman dispensing her own version of justice, they find appearances can be deceptive, and they are eager to learn more about the avenging angel who is able to block her thoughts to them. By day Jameson Alinari runs a women's shelter. By night she makes personal visits to those who have committed crimes against women. Having a pair of handsome twins bust in during a "teaching moment" was a complication she did not need. But when one of her former targets is murdered in a grisly fashion, she is now reliant on the hot twins to prove her innocence. What she never expected was the chemistry that ignited with not one but both of the Daniels. Her future was on the line. She didn't have time indulge in night-time fantasies. Or did she? As the body count rises, Jameson fights for independence in a relationship that feels too, too perfect, as Ethan and Ronan fight to prove what seems so wrong can be oh so right.
Tribes
Alex, her sisters, and their kids are on their way to her camp in the Adirondack Mountains for the Columbus Day weekend when the unthinkable happens. A voice on the radio warns of an imminent attack and tells them to seek immediate shelter. Greeted by guns and bullets when they try to seek shelter, they are forced to hide in a cave to wait out the fallout. After two weeks in their dank hole, they're wasting away from starvation. Alex wakes up one morning to discover her sisters gone. They've taken the rented minibus and returned to the city to search for their husbands, leaving Alex to care for her 7 nieces and nephews. It's an arduous 35-mile hike through the mountains to her camp. There's no way the kids can survive such an ordeal…but they do! It becomes a journey through hell. Society is devolving. Looters, murderers, and rapists hold sway now. The strong preying on the weak. The small hamlets and villages they pass through have been turned into killing fields as survivors battle each other for the few remaining supplies. Above them, the skies are growing darker every day, blocking out the sun. Temperatures are plummeting, winter is coming early. Her burden increases when Alex takes in two orphans she finds on the trail. Now she has 9 hungry mouths to feed. Their little band is elated when they finally make it to camp. They're safe, at least for the moment, but in order to keep from starving, they'll need to learn how to live off the land the way the tribes that once inhabited the area did. Alex knows where to find the books that can teach them how to survive: the gift shop at the Adirondack Museum. While searching the buildings there, she stumbles on a large, hidden cache of food only to discover it's guarded by a man who'll haunt her nightmares. Half guardian angel, half demon. Both barbarian and benefactor. A strange mixture of brutality and gentleness, cruelty and caring. A man named Wolf!
