Meet Author Dariel Raye! Interview and short Excerpt! Don't forget the giveaway!





When greedy land developers set their sights on Dark Sentinel land, Torin turns to attorney Stephanie Bates for help, but she’ll need his protection to stay alive long enough to save his land.
Real estate lawyer, Stephanie Bates, has risen to the top of her field through meticulous sacrifice and goal setting. She has no time for distractions – and that includes pets, messy relationships, and loose ends.

Torin DuMont is a forensic scientist who chose the profession to avoid dealing with people as much as possible. Raised by a stepfather who hated him, he’s been forced to live a life of solitude, fueled by anger and distrust. When wolves and shifters start turning up dead, Torin must battle an enemy bent on destroying those he was born to protect. His greatest challenge, however, is Attorney Bates and the surprising affect she has on his heart.

Interview with Dariel Raye!



Deanna: Tell us a bit about yourself that our readers might not know.
 

Dariel: I started playing piano by ear at 5 years old, tutor ACT, SAT, Algebra, Statistics, and Writing (mostly essays and research papers), teach piano and voice, there’s always a tune in my head, numbers run around in there, too. I count constantly, and I seldom go to sleep before 4 am. I know. Sounds pretty dysfunctional, but I’m also a therapist so I know my own diagnosis. LOL

Gem Sivad gives us our weekly CAT NIP!



 Gem Sivad stops by to give us some insight on her new release!



    Part of the excitement of being an author is finding the opportunity to live out my fantasies on paper. Of all the abilities I don’t have but wish I did, the gift of healing is at the top of the list.
    Stories about healers who can lay hands on people and cure their ill health have always fascinated me. Imagine the satisfaction in being able to cure with your touch.  From that fascination, I’ve been able to create several fictional “healers” in my stories and have thoroughly enjoyed the endless possibilities.
     Cat Nip, the first book in my Jinx series features Maggie Jenks, a magically challenged witch who can’t cast a spell to save her life, but she can heal others with her touch.    ~ gem

Synopsis 

      They call her Jinx, an unlucky witch with a reputation for casting erratic spells. But there’s more to Maggie than meets the eye. She’s a vessel of unfulfilled potential and she’s doing her best to sidestep evil as she uses her gifts for good.
But avoiding temptation gets trickier when a shape-changing predator watches her days, stalks her nights, and takes over her dreams.

LUCKY CATCH! Sweet excerpt and COMMENT CONTEST



LUCKY CATCH

The fifth Lucky O’Toole Vegas Adventure

By

Deborah Coonts


Trouble always comes in threes.  At least that’s what Lucky O’Toole, the VP of Customer Relations for Las Vegas’ primo Strip casino/hotel, the Babylon, has heard for years from her mother.  So, tonight, when Teddie, her former lover shows up at her office unannounced and very unexpected, her father offers Teddie a job at the Babylon, she is called to deal with a pig in residence at one of the hotels most exclusive and opulent suites, and Lucky’s current lover, Jean-Charles Bouclet stops answering his phone leaving Lucky to handle his five-year-old son, Lucky figures she has tonight’s compliment of chaos covered.

As usual, she is a tad optimistic.

With a cadre of celebrity chefs with the maturity of teenagers in Vegas for a televised cook-off, a prized Alba truffle in the Babylon’s care, and her mother’s pregnancy racing toward the inevitable, what could go wrong?

When the truffle is stolen from the walk-in in Jean-Charles’ gourmet burger joint at the Babylon and a young chef apparently killed with a smoking gun is found in Jean-Charles’ food truck on the back lot, trouble takes a sinister turn. 

And Jean-Charles still isn’t answering his phone.

Another body is discovered.  This one stuffed in an oven at Jean-Charles’ eponymous restaurant and set to broil. 

Desperate to put a lid on the body count and more than frantic over her AWOL lover, Lucky uses her Vegas contacts to search in places and in ways the police wouldn’t or couldn’t.  Teddie insists on riding shotgun.  Lucky hasn’t the time nor the resolve to say no.  She’s never been able to resist Teddie … not really.  With danger dogging their heels, Lucky finds herself falling once again under his spell as they traverse Vegas, being drawn deeper and deeper into the highly competitive world of high-end eateries and the battle for the very rare, most highly prized gourmet foodstuffs.

Would somebody really kill for a truffle?

In a heartbeat.

And when Lucky’s path crosses the killer’s… will her goose be cooked?

Chrystal Vaughan shares her Conspiracy of Ravens!

 CONSPIRACY OF RAVENS AUTHOR CHRYSTAL VAUGHAN!

Deanna:  Tell us a bit about yourself  that our readers might not know.
Chrystal: I am a big coward when it comes to scary movies. I can read anything, and I can write some of the most twisted murder scenes, but I can't watch scary movies. Paranormal Activity gave me nightmares for weeks and we still don't mention The Grudge in my household.
 
Deanna:  What do you do to relax?
Chrystal: I read all the time. When I'm not writing I'm either reading, knitting, or spinning yarn for relaxation.
 
Deanna:  As authors, we’ve sometimes been accused of being several people. How many personalities live in your mind?
Chrystal: No less than seven. It's very distracting and crowded up in my brain.
