Witch's Curse Cover Reveal M.L. Stephens



               THE WITCH'S CURSE.....
                          BY: M.L. STEPHENS

  Hecate didn't dabble in dark magic. Watching her lover die at the end of another man's sword changed that. In a single act of vengeance, she turned her lover's killer into a werewolf and cursed him for eternity. It was A Witch's Curse to rival all others and it was her last act as a goddess.
   Drago despised being a werewolf. He spent thousands of years searching for an antidote, only to discover that the witch who cursed him, also had to cure him. Unfortunately, that witch died lifetimes ago. Undeterred, he continued to search. Two years ago he found Hecate's remains lying in a crypt hidden deep within the Louisiana Bayou. Today, he watched a coven of witches bring her back to life.
   He killed her lover. She damned him for all time. Can two souls who are destined to be eternal enemies, learn to forgive enough to live again?

This book will be coming out and available on 10/10/13!!!! It was a great wonderful read and I am looking forward to the release.... Let's go show this author some love!!!! She has some wonderful books out there in different genres so there is something for everyone!!!! Enjoy and Happy Reading!!!

M. L. Stephens Bio

     I'm always clicking away at the keyboard, but when I'm not, my family, two dogs, and a very peculiar cat keep me on my toes! There's never a boring moment at my desk!
    Besides my obvious love for coffee and all things caffeinated, I love to travel. The occasional tourist stop is fun, but I'm a back road kind of gal. Take me off the beaten path. I want to meet the ordinary people behind the culture.
    My crazy family includes a husband, four kids, two grandbabies, two dogs, and a cat. That's right! Life is totally insane! Now you understand why I write!
    Speaking of writing, I've been spinning stories around the campfire, since I can remember. Poetry was second nature, and as a teen and young adult, short stories were constantly being penned. I'm an avid reader, who loves almost all genres. Let's face it! A good read is a good read, regardless of whether it takes place in the future, the past, or with ghosts.


Thank you so very much to Shelly for inviting me to join her on this fabulous journey!!!! I hope to bring some fun along, please bear (yes pun intended) with me as I am learning :) This will be wonderful and I am hoping you all love authors as much as I do!!! Well Shelly does some hot books, I do a few too, We will also be branching out to paranormal, sci-fi, fantasy........ ya you get the idea!!!!! We love them all!!! Hope to have a wonderful time and learn about everyone!!!! Have a wonderful Saturday!!!!! ~~~~<3 April Epley <3~~~

Genre: New Adult Romance

Chloe and Derrick have spent most of their lives together as friends and as lovers; they have formed a connection that few couples can make last. This duo is bound by one thing that no one can destroy. They have been touched by one another and no one can take that away. That is until one of them is forced to make a decision and their lives take on a different path. Can these two withstand the reality of what lies ahead? Are they able to hold a relationship together with just the mere fact that they may love each other? Is it possible to maintain a bond that no one else has been able to touch? Chloe and Derrick may have the relationship others dream about, but sometimes things do get in the way and it can be impossible to forgive and forget. Goodreads Link:  
  EXCERPT “My I have this dance?” I ask. “I can’t believe this night Derrick, it’s our song.” “It sure is angel. Come on let’s dance to it.” I walk her over to the small dance floor area and swing her around in my arms. As we dance to our song, Lucky by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat, I envision what it will be like to dance with her to this song on our wedding day. I pull her in closer to me so that I can feel her heart beating against mine. This day has been absolutely perfect and there’s just one more thing I need to do. I pull away from her just enough so that I can look into her eyes again. “You are so beautiful to me Chloe.” I tell her and kiss her lips ever so softly. “I love you so much Derrick. No matter what we’ve been through we always make it work. You make us work. I love you.” She kisses me back but instead of a soft kiss she kisses me fiercely. I feel tears coming down our cheeks and I pull away. “Don’t cry angel. This is all for you. Everything I do is for you so that our future is perfect. Come on we have one last surprise for the night.”   ABOUT THE AUTHOR TH Snyder         T.H. Snyder is a 33 year old mother of 2.

COVER REVEAL!! The Truth About Us by TJ Hannah

TTAU Cover


Twenty-one-year-old Sophia Ross has lived under the pressure of her parents expectations since the tragic accident that shattered their once perfect family. Determined to start over where no one knows her, she answers a housing ad on Craigslist and takes a job at a little bar in a town she has never heard of. All Sophia's looking for is a place to escape, somewhere she can hide behind her lies and keep herself distracted.
She just didn’t expect to be distracted by Corbin Kasey. Twenty-five-year-old Corbin Kasey is stuck in his hometown, his job, and his life, spending more time covering for his Dad’s problems than trying to fix his own. To take his mind off everything he has the wild Kayla, his stable roommates, and the calmness of swimming in Mills Lake. He always thought it was enough to keep him from drowning in himself, until he meets Sophia. Neither of them are prepared for their lies to be stripped away by a single kiss. But for Corbin and Sophia, the truth has consequences. *NA romance- Mature content*  

Meet TJ

TJ Hannah is a Canadian author working on her first NA novel, THE TRUTH ABOUT US, while juggling a few other personalities and living multiple lives. She loves to be outside or writing but preferably writing outside. TJ is also easily appeased with a good book, a comfortable couch, and a glass of wine.

Title: Ignite (#1, Explosive Series)
Author: Tessa Teevan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Expected Release Date: November 4, 2013

After nearly a year and a half of grieving the loss of her husband, twenty-seven year old Alexa Sullivan Tate is headed back to her hometown after a decade of being away. She has no idea her high school crush, Jace McAllister, the guy who stole her heart the same night that he broke it, is more than ready to pick up the pieces. 

Jace has spent the last ten years in the Army defusing bomb after bomb, trying to forget the girl who ignited all his passions. Little does he know that the spark still exists. 

Ten years ago they had smoldering chemistry, but the spark between them now might light a fuse that leads to an explosion even Jace can't stop. Not that he wants to. If only Alexa can get past her guilt and trust her heart again. 

But how do you put it all on the line when you've already lost everything once before?

*While this is a series, each book will be standalone

At one point I see her eyeing the tattoo on my forearm and before I know it her fingers graze over the italic words and the jagged, raised scar that underlines them as she reads aloud to herself. “Vulneratus non victus. What does it mean?”

I begin to tell her about the time when a roadside IED hit the Humvee in front of mine. My left arm had been hanging out the window and a piece of shrapnel tore into it. I had a four inch gash that had required forty-two stitches, but other than that I’d been fine. 

“It’s Latin for ‘wounded, but not conquered.’ We were fortunate to have not had any bad injuries, so when we got back the guys and I all went and got this tattoo to commemorate that those bastards tried, but failed.” 

She pales slightly at the mention of my injury, no matter how minor, so I wrack my brain trying to find a way to change the conversation into something much lighter, even though her fingers trailing over the words on my arm are making my skin tingle, bringing all kinds of erotic thoughts to mind.

About the Author
After moving around for much of her life due to being an military brat, Tessa finally settled in Dayton, Ohio where she lives with her husband, her two cats, and an ever growing book boyfriend shelf (okay, shelves). Working for the government by day, and writing by night, she couldn't be more excited to publish her debut novel.  Her Kindle is practically glued to her hands, but when she's not reading or writing, you can find her rooting on the Cincinnati Reds, Bengals, and the Ohio State Buckeyes. She loves her sports almost as much as she loves her books. Her other obsessions include red wine, hot men, country music, and all things Grace Potter.

Kitchen Scandals By Brooke Cumberland

Shelly Rates this book 4 stars


"She finally found the one…
but he has a hidden secret. Could this be the breaking point for Molly?
Has she endured too much?
Drake and Molly had instant chemistry in Kitchen Affairs, but when secrets go all wrong, their relationship will be tested, feelings get hurt, and limits will be reached.
Someone interferes with their relationship, keeping them distant and longing for answers in all the wrong places. Some people are not who they seem... leaving a betrayal of lies crashing down on them.
Can they recover their once intense, sensual chemistry? Will love be enough?
Secrets, betrayals, and scandals…
Chicago’s hottest couple, Molly & Drake, go through big changes, hidden secrets, and tragedies."


This book was so much better than the first book.  Molly and Drake's characters developed so much thru this book.  

There were a lot of big surprises thrown into this book.  First off, Drake a daddy!!  Oh, and lets not forget the fact that he KNEW this before he even met Molly, and after a year, still haven't found time to tell her until he was forced too!  That led to some turmoil, but as always Molly was very forgiving.

Now, enter Molly's stalker, and her admirer!  Nikos is not only her superior, but he his hopelessly in love with her! (remind you of anyone, cough....Travis...).  He is not very forthcoming about his affections, but Drake sees what Molly doesn't.  

There is a stalker.  We don't know who it is, or wether they are stalking Molly or Drake, but they are not friendly.  They leave messages that Molly is too good for Drake, that Drake doesn't deserve Molly, plants items in their home to stir up trouble, and so on.  Molly has her idea who it may be, and Drake has his ideas.  Turns out they are both wrong!  

I don't want to let the cat out of the bag on who is at fault,  but there is a good amount of drama, and suspense in this story, and lots of hot steamy parts!!  Makes for a good read.  Brooke has done a lot better job her second time around!!

September Author Spotlight Stacy Borel

Author Spotlight 

Stacy Borel

This month I am spotlighting author, Stacy Borel.  She is an Indie Author, born in California.  She was a Military brat, so she didn't live anywhere longer than 5 years.  She currently resides in Texas.  

Stacy is the author of the book EVER ENOUGH.  I ABSOLUTELY LOVED this book!!  The story line and the characters have such depth to them you swear it could be real!  I fell in love with this story from the first chapter.  I don't think I have ever finished a book so fast in my life!  I don't think I was able to put it down long enough to even get up and get a glass of tea!  It is definitely a book you wont be able to put down!!  


What happens when the man you thought was the one, ends up being the one that got away?

When Finley breaks her heart on graduation night, eighteen year old Emilyn is left alone to pick up the pieces of her life. After muddling through the next ten years-including immersing herself in a lifeless marriage-she is brought to her knees when she encounters Finley at her high school reunion. Long ago buried emotions and feelings bubble to the surface and when Finley kisses her, Emilyn flees the scene. Arriving home to find her husband in the arms of another woman, Emilyn is forced to return to her hometown and start again. But is it possible to start afresh when the past just won’t seem to let you go?

Finley has spent the ten years since high school focused on his career. As a songwriter, he has never had a problem getting women. But when he realizes that the woman he let go a decade ago could be his happy ever after, he decides to do whatever it takes to get her back. But are some hurdles too great to overcome?

EVER ENOUGH received a 4.4 star rating according to It also made the TOP 100 on as well.  

I was lucky to do an interview with Stacy, so I would like to share that with you all!  

What inspired you to write your novel/series?

It was a combination of me reading 5 books a week, and then having ideas bouncing around in my head and needing to be put on paper. I’ve always had an active imagination so this is a great outlet.

Is being an author your full time job, or do you write part-time?
This is my full-time job, unless you count being a chauffeur, gourmet cook, super mom, maid, and awesomesauce wife.

Married?  Children?  Is your family a big influence on your writing?
I am married. My husband and I just celebrated our 10yr anniversary in July. We have 2 children, a girl and a boy and I also have 2 dogs. My family will always influence my writing. It’s important to me that my kids see that if you have a dream and a goal, you should do everything to achieve them. If they see me wanting more in life, they will want more.

Dates your book(s) released?

 May 6th, 2013 Ever Enough was released and made it into the Amazon 100.
 September 17th, 2013 Always Enough will be released.
 December 2013 (exact date TBA) Touching Scars will be released.

Are your Characters inspired by anyone you know personally, or just creative genius?   

For all the characters I’ve written thus far, it has been a combination of both. I tend to make each one represent someone I’ve known in real life but I throw in a bit of imagination as well.

Do you have any books currently in the making? 

I do. I’m writing Touching Scars at the moment and this is a book I’m very excited about.

What is your favorite thing about writing?

I love that I get to create a world that I would want to live in. I make up people and an alternative life that I find intriguing and I feel like I am in their heads vs. them being in mine. All of my characters ‘talk’ to me, and I feel like they tell me what to write and what they are doing. That’s not strange is it? Haha!

What do you do in your “free time”?

I can tell you I’m almost always on Facebook, or I’m reading. Unless of course the kids are dragging my attention elsewhere or the husband is demanding my attention.

What is your favorite genre to read?

 New Adult/Contemporary Romance.

Do you have anything you would like to say to the readers?

         I just want to thank everyone that has supported me and helped push me to make my writing so much more. My readers have been more than I ever expected and I adore each and every one of them. I not only write for myself, but I write for them, to give them the story that I think they deserve to hear. 

I cannot tell you all how amazing this woman is!  I haven't had the privilege of meeting her face to face,(hopefully some day, Stacy) I consider her a great friend!   She is incredibly sweet, generous, fun, kinda, caring and helpful!!  She is never afraid to lend any fellow newbie authors a hand. I know this from experience since she has been very helpful to my daughter who is just starting out in the Indie world herself.  She is a person everyone should get to know, and EVER ENOUGH is a book EVERYONE should read!!  So hurry up, If you haven't read it yet, DO IT NOW!!!  Stay tuned for updates on Stacy's upcoming releases for ALWAYS ENOUGH (September 17) and TOUCHING SCARS (December).
