The Undertakers 5: End of the Word by Ty Drago

Publication Date:  March 29, 2016

Publisher:  Month9Books

The Corpse War is over. Or at least Will Ritter thought the war was over. But Will quickly changes his mind when he is led through a doorway in time and finds himself in a future where the Earth has been all but destroyed. The Corpses, alien invaders who wear the dead like suits of clothing, have returned in horrific numbers. In the wake of their destructive onslaught, a rag-tag group of survivors with some of Will’s now grownup friends among them is all that’s left of mankind. Will must take part in a desperate, last ditch effort to rewrite history, prevent the Second Corpse War from ever happening, and defeat this evil that has consumed mankind once and for all. But victory, if such a thing is even possible, carries a heavy cost.

Chapter 3

The Impossible Enemy

The moment Emily pulled me out into the hallway of Children’s Hospital, dragging me along as if she was a grown-up and I was a kid—which, of course, nailed the situation perfectly—I got my first inkling that things in “tomorrow” weren’t, well, good.

In the white room, the tiling had looked worn. Out here, it was positively ancient. Maybe a third of the one-foot-diameter squares were missing, showing old dried grout and rotted plywood underlayment. Many others were in pieces, their jagged shards littering the floor. The rest looked so dingy that they weren’t checkerboard black and white anymore, but an almost uniform gray.

The walls and ceiling were no better: spider webs and holes; dangling fluorescent lights; medical signs that either hung precariously from rusted nails or had fallen and now littered the floor like autumn leaves.

“What happened here?” I asked as we hurried around first one corner and then another, finding more of the same. No doctors or patients. No people at all. Just ruin.

“Later,” my sister told me. “I’ll explain it all. I promise. Right now—”

At that instant, the swinging double doors at the end of the hall, the kind that emergency gurneys are always getting pushed through at high speed, were torn off their hinges.

And the living dead poured in.

My heart stopped. I swear it did.

That’s not possible!

There had to be a dozen of them. Type Fours, mostly. That was our rating system for degrees of decomposition: One to Five. Fours were a month dead and pretty far along. Normally, the Corpses didn’t use them in combat. Too fragile.

But here was a whole bunch of them, and they were charging.

Emily gasped and put on the breaks, whirling around and pulling me back the way we’d come. At the same instant, she used her free hand to snatch the radio from her belt again. Into it, she called frantically, “Amy! Steve!”

“Lemme go!” I said.

She ignored me, still dragging me along behind her. Behind us, the wall of deaders kept coming. A fresher Corpse could run seriously, terrifyingly fast. But the tendons and ligaments in Type Four legs had shriveled and dried, making them slower and stiffer, much like their movie zombie cousins.

“Emily,” I snapped. “Let go of me!”

“No!” she exclaimed. “We have to find Amy and Steve and get out of here!”

I dug in my heels and yanked my hand free from hers. She stopped and stared at me, her face—still heart-shaped—flushed with panic.

“There is no way out,” I told her. “They’ll be coming in through every possible exit. They want us to run, box ourselves in somewhere in the building where more of ’em will be waiting.”

My sister, her eyes wide, seemed to consider this. Then she visibly swallowed and nodded.

HELL ON HEELS
Hotel Rodeo #1
Victoria Vane
Released January 19th, 2016
Lyrical Shine
Some Odds are Meant to be
Played…
PLACE YOUR BET
The
Hotel Rodeo in Las Vegas has seen better days, but managing partner Ty Morgan
has come up with a way to return it to its former glory. His plan looks
promising until the unthinkable happens. Suddenly Ty is working for the boss’s
daughter. And Miss Monica Brandt, hot as she may be, doesn’t share his vision…
ROLL THE DICE
She
left a fabulous career and a frustrated fiancé in New York to move to Vegas and
save her father’s investment. But now Monica is locking horns with a sexy
cowboy-turned-businessman. What does Ty think he can do that she can’t? All
Monica knows is that she doesn’t dare trust him—or is it herself she doesn’t
trust…
AND WIN
 
Excerpt-Banner

Ty Morgan jammed the elevator button three times with his thumb, and then noticing he was alone, gave the steel door a solid kick with his boot. And then another just for good measure, curses flowing in a steady stream. He didn’t normally have such a short fuse, but he was so pissed he was seeing red. With Tom’s forced retirement, he knew there’d be changes, but this was just too damned much! The new boss was both clueless and color blind—to anything but red and black.

Sure the place wasn’t doing as well as expected, but all of Vegas was still feeling the pain of economic recession. These things didn’t fix themselves overnight. On top of that, the timing of everything had sucked, but with so much skin in the game, he and Tom would both lose their asses if they didn’t let it ride. Tom had understood that—even though he’d had the most at risk. But now Tom was out of the picture and his choice of replacement didn’t know her ass from a hole in the wall.

***

A dull throb had begun behind Monica’s eyes, no doubt a lingering side-effect of two weeks of sleepless nights camped outside the CCU at Desert Springs Medical Center. In desperation to ward off an imminent migraine, Monica snatched her Prada purse from the desk drawer and rummaged for an elusive bottle of Excedrin. She finally found the bottle and popped four, chasing them with the tepid dregs of a Starbucks triple espresso, not that she really needed the caffeine. She was already wired for a confrontation.

She flicked a glance at her diamond bezel Tag Aqua racer—her last birthday present to herself. The watch, the bag and even her Jimmy Choos, were all well-recognized power statements in New York, not that he’d know the difference. And he was now fifteen minutes late. She uncrossed her legs and then crossed them again, sounding her impatience in the staccato tap of a stiletto heel. Monica snatched up her phone, was about to hit redial and then threw it back down again.

She inhaled, counted to ten, and then exhaled with a huff of exasperation. Was this just some passive-aggressive strategy to unsettle her? Maybe. But then again, she was probably giving Ty Morgan way too much credit—the dumb cowboy probably didn’t know how to tell time.

TWO TO WRANGLE
Hotel Rodeo #2
Victoria Vane
Released February 16th, 2016
Lyrical Shine
A
COUNTRY BOY
Maybe
having a hot and heavy affair with the boss’s daughter wasn’t the smartest
move. But country boy Ty Morgan didn’t regret a moment with city girl Monica
Brandt…until she left Las Vegas to return to her life in New York.  When
devastating news sends her running back, Ty can’t help but open his arms.
His heart, however, is another matter.

AND
A CITY GIRL
Now
that Ty has what he’s always wanted—controlling interest in Hotel Rodeo—Monica
is certain their time together is at an end.  Then Ty asks her to come on
board as a partner.  Maybe it’s just her money he needs, but the chance to
stick close to the sexy wrangler sure could make work a whole lot more
interesting.

GET
READY TO TANGO
Their
partnership doesn’t come without a heap of problems. The two can’t agree on
anything—except their iron-hot attraction.  As the hotel’s Grand Opening
approaches, the truth is all too clear: Ty and Monica must find a way to mix
business with pleasure if they have any shot at dancing off into the sunset
together…

Excerpt-Banner

“I’m not going to be a silent partner, Ty.”

“Didn’t expect you to be.”

“If you want me you’re going to have to give me equal say.”

“How can I do that when I’m talking bulls and you’re going off about Flamenco dancers?”

“You just illustrated my entire point!” she said. “If we’re going to work together you have to let me be a part of this. Partnerships require common goals and like minds. How can this work when we have none of that?”

Ty perched on the desk with a frown. “One little stumble and you’re already getting cold feet? We can work through this if we try, Monica. And I’m willing to compromise—to a point. You just gotta understand that this whole thing was my vision. My idea. My dream. I can’t let you or anyone else take that away.”

“I’m not trying to take it away from you. I just want it to succeed. We’re talking about a huge investment. Look, Ty, I came in here with an open mind, but I can’t take the back seat and neither can you. Do you see now how incompatible we are? And why I’ve said we could never work.”

“I thought you had more grit than that.”

“That’s not it! I wanted this to work. I really did, but we just don’t have enough common ground. I admit the chemistry between us is incredible, but we burn too hot.”

“You’re right about that part,” he broke into a dark chuckle. “We’ve been playing with gun powder from the get go. But there’s something you need to understand about gunpowder, Monica. Although it’s highly combustible, it’s also what makes fireworks. So only two things can happen here—we’re either gonna blow like a stick of dynamite or we’re gonna make some major fucking pyrotechnics…Don’t know ‘bout you, but I’m banking on the fireworks.”

BEAUTY AND THE BULLRIDER
Hotel Rodeo #3

Released March 15th, 2016
Lyrical Shine

 

When
Beauty Wants A Baby

Championship
bull breeder and former Texas beauty queen Delaney McCall was having a heck of
a time finding a daddy for the baby she craved. A failed marriage left her with
no desire for another husband, but finding the right stud to satisfy her needs
presents a bigger problem that she could have imagined.
And
The Bullrider Wants Beauty

After
hanging up his spurs, bull rider Zac McDaniel wants nothing more than to
fulfill Delaney’s dream of having a family. After all, his best friend’s ex has
been his fantasy for years. Zac, however, has no desire to be seen as just a
means to an end. And when Zac insists on doing things the “old
fashioned” way, their passion explodes like a bull out of the chute…
Some
Bucking Is Bound To Happen

While
insisting it’s all just a passing fancy, the more Delaney sees the softer side
of the rough and tumble cowboy, the harder it is to keep her emotions
corralled. Zac, meanwhile, is more determined than ever to prove he’s what she
really needs, and will do whatever it takes to tear down the mile high fence
around her heart…

 

Excerpt-Banner

He leaned back on the breakfast bar, taunting her with a cocked brow. “Running away?”

“What do you mean?” she asked.

“I think you’re afraid.”

“Afraid of what?” she asked.

“I think you’re attracted to me and it scares the shit out of you.”

“Last night I said you were attractive, Zac. I didn’t say I was attracted to you. There’s a difference.”

“No, there isn’t. You’re splitting hairs.”

She gave a snort. “Do you really think you’re that irresistible? Your ego is as big as Ty’s.”

“C’mere.” He jerked his head in a beckoning motion.

“What for?” she asked warily.

“I think it’s time for a little test. We can end this whole debate here and now.”

“What kinda test?”

“The kiss test,” he said. “It’s real simple. I’m gonna kiss you. If you can stand there and do absolutely nothing, you win and I lose.”

“What’s the point?” she asked.

“Sexual compatibility,” he said. “If we kiss and I don’t do it for you, I’ll drop any ideas of sex with you and submit to the test tube.”

“That simple?” she said. “You’ll donate your sperm if I let you kiss me?”

“As long as you don’t respond. That means no sounds. No kissing back. No touching.”

“Just one kiss?” she said.

“One kiss.”

“How long a kiss?” she asked.

“A standard breath hold,” he replied.

“No tricks?”

He held out his bare arms. “Nothing up my sleeve.”

Slapping his wet shirt down on the counter, she upturned her face. “Okay, Zac. I’ll let you kiss me.”

Now that the moment had come, Zac’s heart hammered against his breastbone. He’d never been nervous about a kiss, but then again, a kiss had never meant all that much to him. That wasn’t to say he didn’t like kissing. It was a pleasant enough pastime, but mostly it just served as an appetizer to the main course. He suddenly realized he didn’t know if he was a good kisser or not. He’d never had to try all that hard. Most of the women he’d been with were already primed for a tumble well before the first lip lock. He’d never suffered a crisis of confidence with any woman, but this wasn’t just any woman—it was Delaney McCall, the woman he hoped to spend the rest of his life with.

Add to GR Button

 

 

A need to belong drives her. A longing to forget compels him. Fate may send them into each other’s arms, but only love can mend their hearts.

An Outlander

Raised by a tyrannical father, Marion de Lacy yearns for the comfort of belonging to a loving family. So when her father announces her betrothal to an evil baron in exchange for a number of knights, she concocts a desperate scheme to avoid the marriage: feigning her own death and then fleeing England. But when her plan goes terribly awry and she’s captured by the baron, not even her careful preparations could ready her for the Scottish barbarian who rescues her and then informs her that he’s to marry her by edict of her king. Certain her father will defy the king’s orders and wed her to the baron if she refuses the Highlander’s hand, Marion agrees to marry the strangely compelling but obstinate laird of the MacLeod clan.

A Highlander

After the death of his beloved wife, Iain MacLeod has no desire to marry ever again. Yet when he finds himself obliged to do so to secure the freedom of his childhood friend and king, he reluctantly travels across England to collect his unwanted bride, expecting to find a cold Englishwoman. Instead, he discovers a fiery, bold beauty who is fiercely loyal, protective of those she loves, and defies him at every turn, challenging his certainty that his heart is dead.

Ensnared

Following a hasty marriage and perilous journey to Scotland, Marion harbors no illusions that her new husband loves her. Still, her heart cannot resist the noble, brave warrior, and she cannot suppress the hope that she has finally found where she belongs. However, the harder she tries to fit in with the clan and gain Iain’s love, the farther away her dreams drift. Iain is more than willing to give his respect to his courageous wife—her kisses and caresses even ignite his blood and demand his passion—but he refuses to give up his heart. That is, until enemies near and far threaten to take Marion from him. Now the demons that haunt him can only be conquered by surrendering body and soul to Marion, if only it’s not too late…

 

My Review:

When a Laird Loves a Lady (Highlander Vows: Entangled Hearts, #1)

by Julie Johnstone

“A need to belong drives her. A longing to forget compels him. Fate may send them into each other’s arms, but only love can mend their hearts.”

I love reading historical romance fiction and this one is fantastic. I loved reading about Marion and how her Father was going to marry her off to someone that she didn’t love because of land, that is how they did it back in the 1300’s. I love how Marion’s attitude is and how feisty and strong will she is. But she still has a heart even though her Father was not a nice man. She has made plans to pretend to drown with the help of some men who work for her father but don’t agree with him. One of the men came with her Mother from Scotland and is trying to help her go to Scotland. Her Mother died when she was 8 years old and this man, Angus, helped her throughout her young years teaching her many things including how to defend herself.  There are so many twist and turns and kept me intrigues. It is one of those books you don’t want to put down.

Of course there is a better man for Marion, a Highlander, Iain Macleod, comes to England to help his childhood friend David and the King wants Iain to marry Marion before her father marries her off to the horrible knight.  Like I said so many twist and turns I am not going to tell you any more, you will have to read this book. If you love Highlanders and historical fiction this book is for you.

This book is awesome, I love the writing and I can really feel what the author is writing about. I am so glad I don’t live in the 1300s, I have no idea how our ancestors survived. I usually like to read books in the 1800s and later but somehow I seem to end up with reading books from earlier times. From reading these books I have learned some history and am so glad that the author took time to research and do her best to write the story just like at the time it really happened. It makes the book more interesting to read. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. I also want to check out other books written by this author, I feel she is a very talented historical writer.

I want to thank HF Virtual Tours for providing me this book and on their tour.

He wasn’t what she was expecting…

Derek Carmichael has harbored a secret crush on his best friend’s older sister for years, but she’s always been out of his reach. Now that Hannah is back in their hometown and newly single, suddenly the five-year age gap doesn’t seem so huge. But convincing her to see him as more than just the kid she used to know is another story.

Hannah Willmett can’t believe how grown-up Derek Carmichael has become. The troubled kid from her youth has turned into a sexy, successful TV celebrity, but Hannah’s wary of his player past and the rampant rumors connecting him to beautiful socialites. Still, she can’t help but give in when their attraction reaches a boiling point.

Trying to keep their fling a secret from her overprotective brother is one thing, but when Hannah finds herself unexpectedly expecting, her life is thrown upside down. She and Derek may be becoming parents together, but that’s no basis for a happily-ever-after. 

 

Excerpt-Banner

“Yeah. I guess I’m still adjusting to all this.” She gestured around the bar. “Being single,” she explained.

“Oh.” He wiped condensation from his glass. “I doubt you’ll have any problems in that department. You’re very…attractive.”

Hell, why had he hesitated? Because every adjective that came to mind—sexy, hot, beautiful—seemed inappropriate. But now it sounded like he was damning her with faint praise.

Her cheeks turned pink. “Derek, I wasn’t fishing for a compliment.”

“I didn’t think you were. I was only stating the truth.”

“I’m not looking for a man.”

“Maybe not, but you ought to know men are still going to hit on you.” Now that he’d started blurting out the truth, he couldn’t stop.

She gave a stifled laugh. “Okay.”

A strand of hair clung to her cheek, and he had to stop himself from sliding his fingers around the curve of her face. Heat rolled in his veins, sent a rush of blood to his head. He’d had a crush on her since he was fourteen, and finally he could do something about it. This was his chance, here in this anonymous bar, with the alcohol smoothing out the edges, and Hannah flirting with him for the first time ever.

“In case you didn’t know, I’m hitting on you right now.”

She sat bolt upright like a startled cat, but the emotion flashing across her face told him she wasn’t completely shocked. She was aware of the undercurrent of attraction tugging between them, though she might have tried to ignore it.

“I-I…” she stuttered before she grabbed her glass and downed it in one long gulp. “I wasn’t expecting that!”

“Are you mad?”

“Of course not. How could I be mad at you?” Flipping her hair, she slanted him a sideways glance. “In fact, I admit I’m kinda flattered.”

The heat in that glance set his blood humming again. “Just kinda?”

World Literary Press

 

Blurb

Family law attorney Gabriella Liakos has one true love, Elpitha Island, where she grew up and hopes someday to return. But Elpitha is in financial ruins, and Gabriella will do anything to keep it from falling into the wrong hands.

Duke Ryder is a savvy real estate investor set on making Elpitha into an exclusive resort. Unlike other investors, he’s not scared of purchasing a property where one family has roots so deep they practically reach the ocean floor…until he meets his beautiful, stubborn, and enticing tour host―the daughter of the owner of most of the island.

Gabriella sets out to dissuade Duke from purchasing Elpitha, but Duke has other ideas. He wants Gabriella and the island. Duke’s powerful seduction draws Gabriella in, but can a savvy investor who’s used to glamour and glitz, and a woman interested in preserving the culture she adores find a happily ever after together?

Review-Banner

Claimed by Love (Love In Bloom: The Ryders #2) by Melissa Foster is a love story that just brought me right into the life of Gabriella Liakos and Duke Ryder. This is one HOT and STEAMY story.  Right from the beginning I fell in love with this love story. The Author Melissa Foster does an awesome job of bring the characters to life. I felt like I was on the island with Duke and Gabriella.

They meet because Gabriella’s grandfather wants to sell the island that has been home to their family for generations and now the island is not making any money and they just can’t afford it.

Duke is the investor and with his partners he has great ideas on what he wants to do with the island. Then he goes there and meets Gabriella, she shows him around the island, she doesn’t want the island to change. She isn’t happy about what is going on and doesn’t really want her grandfather to sell it.

The chemistry with Duke and Gabriella is intense and it totally comes through the pages as I was reading it. I am so glad that I read this story of hot steamy and awesomeness. If you love a good love story with a great plot and some heat ok there was quite a bit of steamy scenes, you will love this story.

I personally will need to read the first one and can’t wait to read the rest in this series. It seems like the Ryders are an awesome family. I want to thank Tasty Book Tours and Melissa Foster for this fantastic read.

ONCE BURNED
Firehouse Fourteen #1
Lisa B. Kamps
Released March 21st, 2016

 

Michaela Donaldson had her whole
life planned out: college, music, and a happy-ever-after with her first true
love. One reckless night changed all that, setting Michaela on a new path. Gone
are her dreams of pursuing music in college, replaced by what she thinks is a
more rewarding life. She’s a firefighter now, getting down and dirty while
doing her job. So what if she’s a little rough around the edges, a little too
careless, a little too detached? She’s happy, living life on her own
terms–until Nicky Lansing shows back up.
Nick Lansing was the stereotypical leather-clad bad boy, needing nothing but
his fast car, his guitar, his never-ending partying, and his long-time
girlfriend–until one bad decision changed the course of two lives forever.
He’s on the straight-and-narrow now, living life as a respected teacher and
doing his best to be a positive role model. Yes, he still has his music. But
gone are his days of partying. And gone is the one girl who always held his
heart. Or is she?

One freak accident brings these two opposites back together. Is ten years long
enough to heal the physical and emotional wounds from the past? Can they
reconcile who they were with who they’ve become–or will it be a case of Once
Burned is enough?

read the stories of her favorite characters when she could create stories for
them whenever she wanted?

That love of writing continued to grow, along with all those voices in her
head, even during her assorted careers: first as a firefighter with the
Baltimore County Fire Department, then a very brief (and not very successful)
stint at bartending in east Baltimore, and finally as the Director of Retail
Operations for a busy Civil War non-profit.

Lisa currently lives in Maryland with her husband and two sons, one very
spoiled Border Collie, two cats with major attitude, several head of cattle,
and entirely too many chickens to count.
