SYNOPSIS

Torn by desire, will loving her mean the death of him?

Dylan McBride’s Seeker abilities have always kept him a step ahead of his father. But one step isn’t enough when it comes to his wife and child. His confrontation with his father leaves him questioning everything he knows, from his life with Heaven, to his part in the Supreme Trinity.

Layne is growing stronger, as is his Seeker. The more time he and Heaven share, the more he’s able to control his Keeper abilities. But when new secrets emerge, he’s forced to face the truth, as well as the emotions he keeps buried.

Among the death threats, constant hiding, and birth of her child, Heaven struggles to keep the peace between her soulmate and Keeper. More lies are exposed, threatening to destroy all that she loves. Will she be able to deny the truth once it’s discovered, or will she give in to What the Heart Desires?

AUTHOR BIO
Kelli McCracken’s love affair with books began long before she could read. She didn’t let anything stop her from creating stories, even as a child.
That same passion still exists within her today. She is an artist by nature, a curator of characters. Kelli McCracken does her best to give each story and character great depth.

“It seems like all I do is write…and listen to Layne. He’s constantly whispering something naughty in my ear, like being dipped in chocolate. Now I want a Kit-Kat. Welcome to my zany life, where #SanityIsOptional, romance is required, and liquor is most definitely quicker. I love talking about my characters. Hope you like hearing about them.”

When she isn’t chasing kids, working on crafts, or sneaking off with a bottle of wine, Kelli spends her time writing. Of course, it can’t be all work and no play. Once procrastination strikes, you can usually find her hanging out on Facebook, Pinterest, or Spotify. Be sure to stop by and say hi. She loves chatting with readers.

Review of Bitten (TV Show)

Okay, now that I’ve Netflix-binged on the first season of Bitten (13 episodes in two days, a total of 11.5 hours), I can review the show properly. This show was suggested to me from a friend, and now I may have to kill her for getting me addicted to a new show! I can’t believe I have to wait until 2015 for season 2! But, that aside, I really enjoyed this show for several reasons.

1) The characters are well developed and at the same time relateable… Except for their fur 😉

2) They werewolves weren’t made out to be stupid, blood thirsty animals with nothing better to do than to kill vampires. And, I swear, if vamps are introduced to this show, it will ruin everything.

3) The human dynamic. Between Elena’s boyfriend Phillip (poor guy) and Logan’s girlfriend Rachel, the sheriff, and even Clay’s old students, the writers are careful to show the relationship between the two species.

4) The fight scenes. They aren’t some glorified hollywood wrestling match. They actually look like two people fighting for their lives. Granted, the characters are well trained in the area, but that only adds to the amazing fight scenes.

5) And, lastly, the romance. It’s not all flowers and fun times under the sheets (though we do see a lot of naked butts during the show lol)…. It’s real.

While I haven’t read the books by Kelley Armstrong that this series is based on, and actually never heard of her or the books before this, if they are anything like the show, I’m sure they’re a hit. That being said, however, I think this is one of those times when the tv show/movie is better than the book. Yes, I said I haven’t read the books, so this is not fact. I just believe that the fight scenes and things are harder to illustrate on the pages of a book than they are on screen.

There are a few characters that I’m not sure about. Jeremy is a great alpha and everything, but sometimes he gets on my nerves with his rules and brooding facial features. He’s a little too stuck in his ways from the past, but I think that’s something he will change as the show goes on. And I’m a little unsure about Nick. While he’s hot and everything, I think the grief he’s going through may cloud his judgment and make me pent on revenge instead of looking at the bigger picture.

Lastly, this show sure knows how to use cliffhangers to its advantage. I wouldn’t be running on 10 hours of sleep between two days if it weren’t for those cliffhangers. They kept making me watch the next one and the next one until I had to force myself to stop and go to sleep! Even that final cliffhanger–boy that was a humdinger–is making me antsy for season 2.

If you have not given this show a shot, I suggest you get a subscription to Netflix, if you don’t already have one, get a hot cup of coffee, get under the blankets, and start watching. You will not regret it.

Cover reveal

This book is intended for Mature Audiences Only!
There’s a LOT of F-bombs and other swear words. Very intense sexual situations (some Pegging, Mild CBT, and first time MM anal sex with a demon and his tail.)

Artisyn and Theodore’s relationship has always been a tumultuous one. Even up until his untimely demise. You’ve already experienced the aftermath, but do you ever wonder what happened to put them at such odds with one another?

After one very intense encounter, Theodore is completely smitten by the woman whom he had met at a bar one night. He doesn’t know her name, and after searching weeks to find her again to no avail, and he is about to give up. As luck would have it, she finally turns up, but it is in the last place he would’ve ever expected to find her.

Artisyn agrees to help her longtime friend Nikolai Gribkov, the captain of the southeastern division of the Paranormal Investigative Taskforce, with some missions that require her brand of “Depraved Finesse”. As expected she has to prove herself to the men of the division. What she didn’t expect is to run into the vampire playmate that she had a one night stand with weeks ago.

Start at the beginning of the journey and find out what really happened in the chain of events that led up to Artisyn being Indebted to Theodore.
