Daughter of Rage & Beauty by Amy Pannza Book Tour & Giveaway


Daughter of Rage and Beauty 
Berserker Academy Book 1 
by Amy Pennza 
Genre: Urban Fantasy Romance 

Publisher: Scribble Pretty Books 
Publication Date: November 4, 2019


The sagas claim you can’t fight fate. I’m determined to prove them wrong. 

They say your twenties are supposed to be the best years of your life. 

Clearly, they don’t know what they’re talking about. 

Because right now, my life is in shambles. As the daughter of one of the most powerful berserkers in the world, I should be taking my place among the noble guild of berserker assassins. By now, I should have mastered my emotions and conquered my rage—all the better to use it as a weapon when called upon to kill. 

But I’m not just Harald Berregaard’s daughter. My mother was a nymph, which makes me a magical mutt. When I was born, my father thought I might possess the best traits from both races. 

He was wrong. 

Now he’s shipping me off to the Berserker Academy, where the unofficial motto is “graduate or die.” 

Nice, huh? 

With the stakes this high, I can’t afford to get distracted. Too bad the academy’s headmaster keeps showing up at the most inconvenient moments, reminding me how much I suck at magic. And fighting. And basic conversation. 

It doesn’t matter that he does it with a smile. Or that his eyes fire silver when he’s amused . . . or aroused. Hauk Sigridsson has his own problems. He’s not going to be one of mine. 

On the other hand, he’s offered me a way to accelerate my studies and make it out of the academy alive. I just have to help him steal a priceless rock and defeat one of the most powerful immortals to have ever lived. 

No big deal. 

I’m in way over my head, but I’m determined to survive. They say you can’t fight fate. I’m going to show fate exactly what I’m made of.

The Smart Girl Mafia Series by Amiee Smith Book Tour & Giveaway


Break Free
Smart Girl Mafia Series Book 1
by Aimee Smith
Genre: Contemporary Romance 

Lynn Scott

You know that super-hot guy from high school? The jock. The popular guy. The one you fantasized about when you were supposed to be studying. The ex-Olympic water polo player you expect to be married in his thirties to an ex-beauty queen and driving around Los Angeles in a Mercedes SUV full of kids. The man who could never be as smart and fun as you. The guy who is not supposed to ask you to hook-up during a party. (Correction: He commanded.)

That’s Nick Willingham. Even in my thirties with a thriving career, a great home, awesome friends, and a very green, holistic lifestyle, I still check the box: nerd. And in what world does a nerd end up with the hot guy? In what what world does a hook-up lead to insta love?

Nick Willingham
Lynn Scott is the woman who is not supposed to say yes. The shy, polite writer who lives in San Francisco. The woman you expect to be married or waiting for some man to choose her. Yeah, that’s not Lynn.

I want her. I want whatever happy ending her brilliantly dirty mind and perfect mouth wants to create. She’s decided that our thing is just a hook-up with an expiration date less than that of her favorite fresh-pressed green juice. Lucky for me, I like to win. But am I willing to take a wrecking ball to my meticulously handcrafted life to win her?

A standalone West Coast romantic comedy from the sexy and indulgent world of the Smart Girl Mafia. Thirtysomethings. Smart, strong women. Hot, alpha men. Always happily-ever-after. Diversity lives here.





Strangely Amazing
Smart Girl Mafia Series Book 2

Lilly Shepard

Detroit-born. Math-loving. Gamer. Kinky. I check the box: geek. I don’t have time for a relationship. I’m a scientist on a mission to eradicate disease. I don’t have time for another wealthy man making lots of plans and promises. I have patients to heal. I don’t have time for a handsome billionaire from Beverly Hills who is offering me a life people dream of… Well, maybe I can fit him in between a game of Grand Theft Auto and saving the world?

Michael Ahmed
I’m ready to settle down and start a family. I want a wife. I think I’ve found her. But she’s not impressed by my luxurious lifestyle or romantic gestures. She’s not impressed by me. If only she could see that underneath my affluence is a guy who loves hip hop and R & B, homecooked meals, and happily-ever-afters. Don’t get it twisted, I’m a prickly snob and an alpha male. I know what I want, and I don’t stop until I get it. And I want her. But can I compete with her ambition?

A standalone West Coast romantic comedy from the sexy and indulgent world of the Smart Girl Mafia. Thirtysomethings. Smart, strong women. Hot, alpha men. Always happily-ever-after. Diversity lives here.





Space Between
Smart Girl Mafia Series Book 3 

Brit Palmer

We’re just friends.
Alex is the guy women swoon over. Gorgeous. Privileged. Reformed bad boy. Hella alpha.
But he’s not my type. I’m a left-wing, feminist with a ridiculously high IQ. I’d rather be singing a jazz tune or shopping for a pair of designer shoes to go with a couture coat. I proudly check the box: weirdo.
Yes, over the last eight years, I’ve developed an affection for him. Given the circumstances, it’s to be expected.
We grew up in the same town. We love jazz shows and Warriors basketball. We help each other out. We co-parent an adorable little dog. He’s the person I turn to when my world feels upside down.
But we’re just friends.
Oh, and there’s that piece of paper. Shh… don’t tell my friends.
Umm, maybe I secretly long to be his pretty, well-behaved housewife. Shh… don’t tell Alex.

Alex Willingham
We are not just friends!
Yeah, there’s that secret binding us. But it’s more than that. We have something.
To Brit, I’m a capitalist suit. Never mind this suit keeps a roof over her head, well-fed, and adorned in designer fashion.
My model-pretty smart girl, made me who I am. I owe so much of my success to her.
Business aside, I’m still her man. Brit just doesn’t know it yet.
I’ll hold out. Eight years isn’t really that long. (Nah, it’s really long.)
At the end of the record spinning between us, she and I both know, our happily-ever-after will be worth the wait.
We were never just friends.

Sue Dent hails from Mississippi and is the author of Never Ceese and Forever Richard the first two installments in her Thirsting for Blood Series. Her debut novel Never Ceese appeared on the 2007 preliminary ballot for a Bram Stoker Award. Her second book in her Thirsting for Blood Series, Forever Richard, made the 2010 long-list at the British Fantasy Society. 

Both Never Ceese and Forever Richard made the 2009 Pluto Award long-list with Never Ceese moving onto the top three books short-listed. Never Ceese was also Book Club Choice of the month at the American Christian Fiction Writers Association in May of 2007 when Sue was a member. Sue no longer pays to be a member due to the fact that the ACFW is a writer's group designed to help author's find homes with CBA niche market publishers. Sue is currently a member of HWA, Horror Writer's of America. 

Dent’s stories continue to appeal to general market readers with surprise appeal to the denominationally discriminative (niche market CBA member publisher's serve. Ms. Dent likes to point out that though her work appeals to readers of this niche market, she does not write specifically for that market which is why you won't find her work in CBA member bookstores or rather on any shelf at any Christian Retailer or even listed on-line at member on-line bookstores such as Christianbook.com.

Warrior Woman of the Samurai by India Millar Book Tour & Giveaway


Firefly
Warrior Woman of the Samurai Book 1 
by India Millar 
Genre: Historical Fiction, Romance




There are some who believe that the honor of a samurai is reserved for men.

But they are wrong.

Keiko was born the daughter of a samurai. But as a mere younger sister, her future was to run errands for her lovely elder sister and obey her father. Until the day it fell to her to defend the honor of her sister and her family... 



Mantis 
Warrior Woman of the Samurai Book 2




Keiko’s men are dead, slaughtered by peasants in a desperate attempt to obtain food for their starving families. She is the last of her line; without her, the noble and ancient house of Hakuseki will die.

In order to try and save her family name, this noble samurai warrior woman is forced to humble herself at the feet of the local daimyo. When he ridicules her and takes the family estate for himself, the samurai code of bushido says there is only one thing left for Keiko.

Vengeance.

Keiko plots to take revenge for the actions of her greedy noble lord and revenge against the men who wanted to buy her and keep her as their slave.

Just like the praying mantis, Keiko lures her enemies into a sense of safety before taking her revenge… 




Chameleon
Warrior Woman of the Samurai Book 3




Keiko’s revenge on her enemies is almost complete. Like her namesake, the chameleon, she has changed herself to attract and entrap the men she seeks. Now, just one man remains unpunished. But before she can complete her vengeance, karma destroys her plans cruelly. Niko—her adopted younger sister—has been kidnapped. Keiko is sure she knows who is behind the abduction, but she cannot act alone to get Niko back. She is forced to turn to the most unlikely ally to help her—Akira, the most feared yakuza in Edo.

Karma forces Keiko to change her colors to get what she wants. She has become as adaptable as the chameleon. But first and last, she is still a warrior woman of the samurai. 




I started my career in the heavy industry of British Gas and ended it in the rarefied atmosphere of the British Library. Now, I share a blissful early retirement on the wonderful Costa Blanca, living in a male dominated household with my long suffering husband, a cat and a dog.
