FIGHTING THE LIES by ANNA EDWARDS #BookBlast @OnceUponAnAlpha @Anna__Edwards

Amazon US I Amazon UK I Amazon CA

The cage door closes on Emma Bryant’s freedom after she is arrested for a brutal murder that she did not commit. The tough-talking lioness knows the penalty she faces is death. Can she repel all of the lies in order to survive?

Scott Frazier is always the joker. Beneath the golden lion’s mane is hidden a secret that just might save the woman he’s known to be his future mate since the first time he saw her. The blood of kings runs through him. Will he make the ultimate sacrifice to save the one he loves?

Fighting the Lies is the sequel to The Touch of Snow; the paranormal romance that had non-readers converting to the genre. It continues the story of the Glacial Blood pack as they strive to save a member from the horrific position she finds herself in. But the story isn’t that simple, not when Nuka Lincoln is around, and an impending storm threatens the world as they know it. The Glacial Blood world is full of intrigue, suspense and kick arse fights. It also features a secret that should remain untold.

A family isn’t always blood; it’s the people in your life that accept you for what you are.

Anna Edwards is a British Author that has a love of travelling and developing plot lines for stories. She has spent that last two years learning the skills of writing after being an accountant since the age of 21. As well as Roleplaying on twitter, she can also be found writing poetry on Twitter

Her debut novel, Surrendered Control was released in November 2016 and has received fantastic feedback on the drama of story. Since then she has released four other books in ‘The Control Series’. The Touch of Snow is the first book in a seven (at the moment) paranormal romance series. Anna only recently discovered paranormal romance but instantly fell in love with it. Brayden and Selene’s story came to her in a dream.

In her writing she loves to combine her love for romantic and erotic novels with her passion for travel to give an international feel to her novels.

Death Valley is somewhere she visited in 2008 after a tragic personal event. It was part of a tour of the west coast of America that she loved a great deal. The highlight of the trip was a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon .

Anna Edwards likes her hero’s hot and hunky with a dirty mouth. Her heroines demur but spunky and her books in a kick arse series.

Game Changer by Charissa Stastny #BookBlast @CharStastny

Game Changer by Charissa Stastny

Meridee Mansford wants nothing to do with the popular crowd. She’s comfortable being invisible. But that doesn’t stop her from dreaming about the hunky football player who visits the campus ice cream shop where she works. Still, she’s smart enough to know he’d never notice a girl like her, and she’d never want him even if he did. Too much unwelcome attention.

Parker Harrington basks in the glory that’s been his since the game-changing passes he caught that pushed his team into the national spotlight. Sticky Fingers is his media moniker now, and the cheerleaders who used to ignore him when he sat the bench have become his most devoted fans. But when he accidentally crashes into a quiet coed and covers her in orange chicken, it throws off his offensive game.

As fate, ice cream, and orange chicken throw the opposites together, will Parker continue keeping company with women he knows are only using him for his fame, or will he change up the game and risk his heart on a genuine girl who despises the attention he craves?

Praise for the Book

“A fun and flirty new adult romance. It’s a sweet indulgence that keeps you turning pages. The start to what is sure to be a great new series. – Jennifer Peel, author of Pianos and Promises series

“Opposites attract when the overlooked sweet girl lands herself the popular football star in this quasi-Cinderella story. It’s the perfect read to keep you up way past your bedtime…”Taylor Dean, author of Chasing Fireflies

 

Excerpt 

Twiddling my fingers, I waited for Ken to make up his mind. I hoped he’d order without looking up so he didn’t recognize me. Not that he would. But just in case, I kept my chin tucked as I stared at the counter.

“Um, let’s see.” His head stayed bowed. “I’ll have a triple waffle cone with a scoop of caramel cashew and…” He paused and scratched his head as though solving a physics problem. “…a scoop of huckleberry ripple, and, umm…I guess I’ll try a scoop of that…”

When he paused, I peeked up to see if he pointed at a flavor. Instead, I found him staring at me.

“Y-you,” he sputtered.

I cringed and wished a hole could open up in the floor and swallow me.

“You’re the girl I crashed into in the CUB yesterday, aren’t you?”

My cheeks burned and my throat felt like sandpaper. “W-what was the last flavor you wanted?” He hadn’t finished ordering.

“Oh, uh, yeah. Um…” His gaze dropped, but shot right back up to stare at me again.

“What’s your last flavor?” I determined to keep him on task.

His brows furrowed. “I guess I’ll have the licorice since it’s new.”

I shuddered, and attempted to ignore the infuriatingly sexy man gaping at me as though I had horns sprouting from my head. The tightening in my chest and labored breathing proved I tried in vain.

Excerpt

Prologue
Niki
What
happens when something you weren’t looking for comes along, and it’s more than
you ever could have imagined? Making you do things you never thought you were
capable of…changing you?
Dance with me.
Three
simple words, demanding, challenging…tempting.
He came
into my life, flipping it upside down, causing me to turn into someone I didn’t
recognize. Secrets blurring lines between fantasy and reality.
Closing my
eyes, clearing my thoughts, I push the demons down, ignoring the temptation
that screams for me to run toward it instead of fighting against it. Those
inner demons, creating a battlefield, dividing the heart.
I wasn’t
always like this. There was a time when I was searching for something more.
Anything that would give me a reason to care. Someone to tell me they wanted
me.
Needed me.
I thought I
had it but was too afraid of losing everything. Of losing the comfort of his security.
But, those three little words were all it took for
me to freefall over that line. Risking it all.
**********
“Dance with
me.” His gravelly voice tempts me over the pulsating beat bumping through the
speakers.
No he didn’t? I swing around ready to give this guy my best
“back the fuck up” glare… only it doesn’t come. Steely blue eyes meet mine,
throwing me off balance.
“Now.” His
hand reaches for my elbow, steadying me.
“I can’t…”
I nod back to Aubrey, who looks like she doesn’t have a care in the world, but
I know different. This is her first weekend without her daughter, Reece, since
she and her ex-husband got a divorce.
“Yes, you
can, and you will.” His hand slides from my elbow to my hand, his grip firm and
strong.
Everything
about this moment is more than just an invitation to dance.
Intense.
The way his
eyes land on mine. The way he tugs me across the dance floor and into a dark
corner.
Dangerous.
“Here.” He
yanks my hand, causing my body to collide with his.
“Oh!” It
slips out before I have a chance to stop it.
“Yeah. Oh.”
He smirks before he pulls me in tighter, and I can feel every single ridge of
muscle hidden behind his suit and tie. “Just feel it. Feel us.” He begins to
rock back and forth. Too slow for the music, but it’s a rhythm that promises
more.
Throwing my
arms over his shoulders, I let go.
Our bodies
tangle. Eyes singing the forbidden lyrics, song after song. My mouth dying to
taste the unspoken words.
Raising a
hand, he tucks my hair behind my ear, before leaning in, whispering, “I’m going
to kiss you now.” His words are a warning, not a question.
I nod,
giving him the permission he doesn’t need.
His steel
eyes pin me in place as he lowers his mouth so close I can taste the scotch on
his breath. Hovering. Teasing.
He is a
predator and I’m his prey. I have nowhere to go, nothing to do but wait for his
attack. My mouth waters; my body waits to be devoured.
“But
first…” His eyes leave mine, scanning the crowd before he spins me around and
slams my back against the metal wall. My back arches away from the cold and
settles into the warmth of his arms as his mouth comes crashing down on mine.
Captivated.

When not
pushing women down the stairs in the fictional world, Cary has her hands full.

binge, to share her passion and loan an ebook, lighting a fire inside her. Two years, and hundreds of ebooks later, she
connected with one of her favorite authors, who patiently listened to her plot
ideas. Her encouragement and saying those three little words “You write it!”
changed everything!
