Day 30: 30+ Days of Christmas 2013


The winner of yesterday’s books is Suze! Congrats!

And now we’re up to Day 30. Whew! The time has sure gone fast hasn’t it? I finally got my Christmas miracle and my house and my babies are safe. It’s been a rough holiday season faced with losing everything and the health issues I’ve been battling as well. It hasn’t been easy to keep going. Now that things have smoothed out a little and I’m not faced with being homeless…I’m starting to get a cold. *eyeroll* Just what an asthmatic needs, another reason to cough! LOL

Today’s books aren’t quite romance. They are all a bit edgier and there’s definitely stuff going on in each of them that isn’t romance related. My offering is a copy of Weirdly III in which I have a dark tale called Ain’t Nuthin’ But a Hellhound. The other authors joining me today for the giveaway are Anne Marie Becker, Gail Bridges, J.J. DiBenedetto and Mona Karel!

From paranormal to weird, from chilling to odd to scary, Weirdly: Volume 3 will sate your lust for strangeness in bite-sized pieces. Each tale weaves its own spell. Beasts, ghosts, demons, evil creatures and, of course, every day, as well as evil, people inhabit Weirdly’s pages.

Ain’t Nuthin’ But a Hellhound Blurb:

Lilah hunts hellbounds because she can. Half demon, she travels the night in search of the hellhounds who steal human souls. Using her powers, she strips the demons of their prey and saves the humans’ souls. But a demon lord, the Lord of the Hellhounds and her former lover, stalks her and while her father, demon royalty, seeks to bring her back to the demon realm.  When Lilah saves the soul of a college professor, he teaches her a lesson about power that sets the demon hunter on a collision course with both her father and her former lover.

Angela and her brand-new husband Josh have just arrived at their honeymoon destination, a romantic bed-and-breakfast hotel on the breath-taking Washington coast—the Inn on the Edge.

It doesn’t take long for things to go horribly wrong. They discover that the old man running the place is a sex demon, who has been stealing their sensual energy. Worse, he’s dangerously in love with Angie and he has plans for her—plans involving an heirloom wedding ring.

Inside Scoop:  This book contains scenes of unbridled demon-inspired passion—girls with girls, boys with boys, twosomes, threesomes and more! A Romantica erotic horror romance from Ellora’s Cave

What if you could see everyone else’s dreams?

Sara Barnes has just discovered that she can.  And this gift – or curse – will lead her on an extraordinary journey.

Follow Sara as her newfound ability leads her into adventures she never imagined.  She will hunt down a serial killer, investigate a plot to murder one of her teachers, unravel a conspiracy between a mobster and a corrupt politician and face off against her nemesis: a woman who shares her talent, but uses it to destroy lives rather than save them.  And Sara will have to manage all that while finishing college, becoming a doctor and falling in love, too.

Here are the first five books of the Dream Series, along with bonus material created especially for this collection.  Included in this set are DREAM STUDENT, DREAM DOCTOR, DREAM CHILD, DREAM FAMILY and WAKING DREAM.  In addition, you’ll find the short story BETTY & HOWARD’S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE starring Sara’s parents.  But most of all, when you open this box of dreams, you’ll find romance, suspense, humor and plenty of heart…
