Their desire destroys her defenses.
Their love gives him a reason to live.< Three years of wandering the post-apocalyptic wasteland has stripped Dr. Chris Welsh of humanity and hope. He’s a dangerous man now, full of dark energy and yen for violence. A harrowing loss drove him from his home, and he hasn’t stopped moving since. Grim and sardonic, he never found anything worth sticking around for–until now.
Rosa Cortez runs Valle de Bravo, a haven of civilization amid the chaos of the Change. Soldiers take their orders directly from her–the iron hand within a velvet glove. The last thing she needs is a feral loner upsetting the town’s tentative balance. However, for the good of her people, she lets the sexy doctor stay. He evokes a delicious new longing, but she won’t submit to any man.
Tension rises as bloodthirsty raiders strike again and again, bent on possessing Valle and its resources. Together Chris and Rosa battle hellhounds and dust pirates while also fighting desperate attraction. To save them, love must overcome the pain of the past–and build a future in this brutal Dark Age…
Just your average boy-meets-girl, girl-kills-people story. . .
Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.
So did his father before him, until his gruesome murder by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father’s mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. Together they follow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead—keeping pesky things like the future and friends at bay.
When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn’t expect anything outside of the ordinary: move, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he’s never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, but now stained red and dripping blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.
And she, for whatever reason, spares his life.
This year we are doing our charity raffle for an extremely deserving charity: Pets Alive. Pets Alive is a front runner in the ongoing fight against animal cruelty.
Pets Alive is an animal rescue in Middletown, NY that is commited to helping animals no matter where they are. Home to over 50 dogs and over 50 cats at any given time, as well as horses, livestock, birds, reptiles and any other animal thats been abandoned the staff of Pets Alive run a wonderful rescue that has gotten national acclaim. They have helped closed countless puppy mills and rescued dogs from Puerto Rico’s hated Dead Dog Beach. From their website:
Pets Alive Animal Sanctuary is one of the oldest no-kill organizations in the United States. The mission of the sanctuary is to rescue, rehabilitate, and place animals into loving homes. Last year, Pets Alive saved more than one thousand animals. Pets Alive is recognized within the local community, nationwide and around the world, as a leader in developing alliances to end the killing of adoptable animals and promoting the humane treatment of animals.
Both of these deserving charities run completely on donations, and we are hoping to raise $2000 this year to help with the day to day running of the Pets Alive compound!
So this is what I am working on doing. Authors and Publishers are donating gift baskets full of goodies from everything book related, to anything you can think of for the fans to donate to win.

The big animal lover I am, I am always for helping out the worlds best 4 legged companions!

Absolutely anything and everything will work! I would like to put together at least 2 gift baskets so anything you can donate, will be more than appreciated! (please no used items)
Please head on over and fill out the form, and please HELP SPREAD THE WORD!
For the last 2 years my best friend, my mom and I have taken part in the Walk to END Alzheimer’s. And last year I had some of you who were wonderful in donating for the cause. This year I would like to take it one step further. I am looking for a few of you who are willing to donate signed books, swag, maybe a book store GC, anything book related. What I would like to do is give back to those of you who donate for this cause. How it will work is everyone who donates to the charity, will be entered to win a prize. But that is later on towards the end of the year. Right now I am looking for your help in donated items. So please head on over and fill out the form. And thank you for taking the time to help out!
