I received this book as a review copy from the publisher through netgalley.Book Blurb:
Few outsiders will ever witness the dark misdeeds of the Heavenly Host. And among this secret society, where exiled Georgian aristocrats gather to indulge their carnal
desires, fewer still can match the insatiable appetite of their chief provocateur, the mysterious Viscount Rohan.
Pursuit of physical pleasure is both his preferred pastime and his most pressing urge, until he encounters the fascination of a woman who won’t be swayed. And while
his dark seduction appalls the pure and impoverished Elinor Harriman, she finds herself intrigued…and secretly drawn to the man behind the desire.
I am a huge fan …
We are really happy to have author Devyn Quinn here today. Siren’s Call, the first book in her Dark Tides Series cam out this week and she is here today to talk about her new series and to celebrate her new release. Please give Devyn a warm welcome.
The Geeky Lover: Devyn, can you please tell us a bit about yourself?
Devyn: I live in the scenic Southwest, though I have called several other states home. I am a huge fan of dark gothic music & shoot-’em-up action movies. But reading is my first love and I spend too much time with history books, as well as feeding my addiction for celebrity biographies. I especially enjoy reading books on Hollywood before the 1960′s and I’m crazy about Marilyn Monroe, her legend and her myth.
The Geeky Lover: Describe a typical day of …

Today, I am thrilled to offer you a glimpse into Ms. Caragh M. O’Brien‘s life as well as her upcoming work; author of Birthmarked, my favorite dystopian novel ever! She’s currently working on book 2, which I can’t tell you how excited I am to read it!
The YA Lover: I am sure you have been asked this before, but where did you get the ideas for the world you created in Birthmarked? Not so much the story itself but the dynamic world?
Caragh: Let me say first, Jenn, that I’m delighted you invited me by and that you enjoyed Gaia’s story so much. The original ideas for the wasteland and societies in BIRTHMARKED came while I was driving across the country during the drought of 2008. In the southern states, every lake we drove over was …

Jarod, who seized an opportune moment and became the …
