newyork

• Title: The Nightlife New York (Book #1 in The Nightlife Series)

• Author: Travis Luedke

• Release Date: August 18, 2012

• Genre: Paranormal, Adult Romance

Synopsis ::

Vampires, strippers, escorts, night clubs, gangs, pimps and corrupt cops, the Nightlife of New York is never boring.

Is she a beautiful blond guardian angel as he imagined, or something else entirely? When Michelle saves Aaron’s life she shares the benefits of her blood (after getting him shot accidentally). He awakes a changed man, living in a purgatory of eternal night, never to see the sunrise again.

Michelle drags Aaron through a hardcore learning curve of vampiric slavery. Forced to adapt to servitude, Aaron is subject to her authority of compulsion. She orders him around like a puppet on a string, a dog on a very short leash. First things first, he must learn to feed properly without creating bloodslaves (humans addicted to the powerful drug-like effect of their venomous bite).

And then she puts him to work-a male escort in the sex trade-same as Michelle. Aaron walks a tightrope of strictly controlled feeding regiments and intensely erotic sexual adventures while catering to the neurotic control-freak tendencies of his new master. It’s do or die, Michelle vows to eliminate him if he proves too difficult to control. The real kicker-amidst all these shocking and degrading adjustments, Aaron finds he’s falling in love.

Can he maintain and keep a sliver of his humanity intact? Innocence is a luxury few can afford in the decadent nightlife of New York. In a world where sex, blood, and power over women is so readily accessible, Aaron struggles against the predatory instincts deeply rooted in his new psyche. He must find his way quickly, practicing rigid self-control, or risk the consequences of Michelle’s wrath.

lasvegas

 

• Title: The Nightlife Las Vegas (Book #2 in The Nightlife Series)

Vampires, Aaron Pilan and his master Michelle, live by one rule — no bloodslaves. EVER. Aaron breaks that rule when he meets Anastasia.

Escaping one train-wreck relationship for another, she finds happiness with Aaron and Michelle as a bloodslave, a ‘pet’. When Aaron uses his telepathy to win thousands at the gambling tables, he attracts the deadly attention of the Colombian Cartel and Aaron and Michelle are ‘disappeared’.

bloodslave
 

• Title: Blood Slave (Book #3 in the series, but considered a stand alone novel)

• Author: Travis Luedke

• Release Date: December 23, 2012

• Genre: Paranormal Erotic, Adult Romance

Synopsis ::

Her mother named her Esperanza de Salvador – Hope for Salvation. But when a girl works as an escort for Colombian cartel in the ghettos of Spanish Harlem, there wasn’t much hope, or salvation.

Hope’s telepathic ability keeps her a step ahead of ruin, but her unusual gift attracts the attention of a psychotic vampire bitch. Trapped in a Manhattan penthouse with the psycho, she thought she was dead meat.

Her survival lies in the hands of Vampire Master Enrique. He seems to respect her, perhaps even care. As a measure of protection, he makes her his personal Bloodslave. Helplessly addicted to his bite, Enrique rules her every moment. As always, Hope must adapt to survive.

Swept into the decadent nightlife of Manhattan’s elite, she falls in love with Enrique and prays someday he may grow to love her, too. But is it simply a relationship of convenience? Is she nothing more than a concubine desperate to satisfy his nightly demands for blood and sex?

And forever in the background is the fear that one day the cartel boss she abandoned will hunt her down to collect on old debts.

The Luck of the Weissensteiners

The Luck of the Weissensteiners

The Luck of the Weissensteiners by Christoph Fischer
Reviewed by Crystal

Not usually being one who enjoys historical fiction, I found this book to be different. It dealt with different emotions that I was not expecting to experience in my reading. Admittedly, I know very little about the Holocaust, but I felt that this story transported me to that time and allowed me to witness the lives of characters who were not in concentration camps. I became enveloped in the story of Greta and Wilhelm as well as the secondary characters. Much more so than I thought I would when I started reading. This book would be of particular interest to anyone who enjoys history (particularly history surrounding the Holocaust). It was not your typical “love story”, but anyone looking for a well-written, just good story would certainly enjoy it.

Autographed Books and Author Friends

How many of you have books signed by your favorite authors?  We’d like to hear about them.   Also, we’d love to hear about your author friends.  We are all so different in what books/genres we like, and a big part of our blog is to reach far and wide to appeal to all kinds of readers, no matter what you enjoy.  It’s no secret that us Orchard Girls met on Twitter based on a mutual love of “Gabriel’s Inferno” and “Gabriel’s Rapture” by Sylvain Reynard.   So, share your stories with us about your favorite authors, your autographed books, and your author friends.  I’ll go first…

Over the summer I attended a book signing in Nashville, Tennessee, by Deborah Harkness (author of “A Discovery of Witches” and “Shadow of Night”).  She very graciously signed both copies and personalized them for me. (picture is of me and Deborah Harkness)

09-18-12 Me & Deb Harkness

I also have several signed first editions of books by Shannon Greenland.  I met Shannon’s dad through my job and I consider him a dear friend.  He introduced me to her books, and she always makes sure that I get a signed copy whenever she writes a new one.  I always look forward to her books!

Lastly, I’d like to give a shout out to Debra Anastasia (author of “Poughkeepsie”).  I read this book through a Twitter recommendation and reviewed it on my personal Goodreads page.  I later was friended on GR by Ms. Anastasia and sent a message from her asking for my address because she wanted to sent me a swag package for reading and reviewing her book.  I received it last week.  I love authors who interact with their readers on this level (as well as social media).  It means that they truly appreciate their fans and readers enough to share extras with them.  Thank you!

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Found-vampire-romance-bundle-ebook/dp/B003LSTE46/ref=sr_1_16?ie=UTF8&qid=1360959719&sr=8-16

This is a bundle of the first two stories in the Lost series.

Lost:

Alone in a cursed canyon, even a vampire can look safe.

After a car crash that may have taken her friends lives, Rachel Daniels finds herself lost in a cursed canyon. Her only hope to escape the place and save her friends is the man she finds wandering through the night; except Cameron Renault is no ordinary man. He’s a vampire and Rachel’s nightmare may have just begun.

Lost is a vampire romance short of around 15,000 words or 40 pages if in print.

Also Included: Found

Nancy Bonnelly killed her friends. She was driving the car when it wrecked, and she talked them into driving through the cursed canyon. Now two of them are dead, another is missing, and Nancy is injured and near death herself.

She is all alone until Dorian Renault finds her, takes her to a cave and nurses her back to health.

But what kind of man has the power to bring the almost dead back to life?

A vampire.

And Dorian isn’t any vampire. He’s a vampire fighting a monster of his own, one that lives inside him. He’d given up hope of winning the battle and was ready to die, until he meets Nancy.

Now Dorian has hope: hope that with Nancy by his side he doesn’t have to be a monster after all.

However, unknown to Dorian and Nancy, there are other monsters in the canyon. Monsters who know more about Nancy and her accident than Nancy herself.

A deliciously romantic Young Adult novel with a supernatural twist.

Seventeen-year-old California cheerleader Jessica is beautiful, wealthy, and popular. She has everything she could ever want, except happiness. But her world changes forever when Tommy, a dark, sexy, mysterious stranger arrives at school on a motorcycle the first day of senior year. Sweeping her off her feet, she loses her heart to him. But will time tear them apart forever?

Imagine a world full of boundless passion, where the intimate touch of a man or woman and the desperate cravings pent up inside, leave you breathless with anticipation. Passion and desire come in many forms, and some of the most powerful moments shared between consenting adults can include aspects of the BDSM lifestyle. When you love someone with all your heart and soul, will the passion you feel give you enough to submit total control? The journey into the lifestyle is uninhibited, complete with trust and understanding, and few of us ever experience these heightened levels of joy.

Join six talented writers as they bring you varying aspects of the BDSM lifestyle in sizzling pieces of flash fiction. These snippets are designed to draw you into the heat of passion-filled nights, with unbridled looks at highly erotic sessions. Included are Kiki Howell’s tales of the paranormal, where vampires and witches fight for the very souls of humanity and each other. Cassandre Dayne’s scorching stories of passion stretch the boundaries of our secret fantasies. Benjamin T. Russell’s captivates with intense glimpses into a Dom’s understanding of a submissive’s deepest needs. In addition, Savannah Chase has a sensual, soul wrenching and yet gripping way of sharing the powerful intimacy experienced between women. Abby Hayes gives you highly charged and quick-witted tales of kink between multiple partners that will keep you guessing to the end. Finally, DH Black, will leave you shuddering with her gritty and sometimes brutal aspects of showing the darker side of BDSM.

Each tale entertains while leaving the reader trembling for another installment. Indulge. Fantasize. Delve into the darker side of passion…

ONE INSIGHT SERIES (Version 9/2/12)

Willow Haywood has always been trapped between the worlds of the Light and the Dark. Her waking hours are plagued by her ability to feel the emotions of those around her. No matter how inward she draws, she cannot shut out the feelings of others. Sometimes she will see images – echoes of other people and places – that she can enter to influence the emotions of people she has never met.

By night, Willow experiences her only escape from this terrible insight – entering into the world of dreams. Most of these dreams are shared in blissful silence with a stunning blue-eyed boy. But every new moon she lives through something much darker: a horrific nightmare shared by another mysterious boy who is always shrouded by shadows.

One night, this shadowy figure invades her dreams outside of his appointed time. In this new nightmare, Willow is marked; a mark which follows her into the waking world and sets her on a momentous path through light and darkness, through fragmented myth and half-truths, through past lives and disturbing family secrets, all in the face of the ever-dominant Zodiac. What she finds will endanger the lives of those closest to her and will force her to make a decision that will change her world forever.

** Now includes bonus material from The Vampire’s Curse: Book 2 in the series.**

“I found this book to be unique in its approach to the typical vampire story. It’s far from typical it’s very different. I’m not going to give a spoiler here other than its storyline of the sentinel concept is awesome and very different. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. Very Well Done. Buy it and read it now if you haven’t yet.” – KhloeZoe via B&N Review

“S.J. Wright is an author to be on the lookout for! Her writing style is fantastic, The world she created in The Vampire’s Warden was so real to me! I cannot wait for this series to continue!This is the best Vampire book I have read… and that is saying A LOT!” – MD_Christie via B&N Review

It was a flash in the moonlight, a blur of motion like I’d never witnessed before. No human had the capacity to move like that. When I found myself face-to-face with him there in the meadow, I knew without a doubt that the journal was authentic. I knew that my grandfather hadn’t been crazy at all.

Because a foot away from me stood a vampire.

Sarah reads her grandfather’s journal in stunned disbelief. What was once her grandfather’s responsibility has passed to her father and now to her. She has become the Warden. Her life will never be the same.

This is part one of a four-part series. It is 31,880 words long. It is a novella, not book length.

Despite his brother the duke’s refusal to acknowledge Juliet, Gareth is determined to do right by the courageous woman who crossed an ocean to give her baby her rightful name. But Juliet is wary of marrying this black sheep aristocrat, even while she is hopelessly charmed by the dashing devil. Never has she met anyone who embraces life so thoroughly, who makes her laugh, who loves her so well.

College-bound Lexi Adams leads no ordinary life. Premonitions dictate her every move, compelling her to rescue strangers day and night. After years of self-sacrifice, she decides to ignore one, but innocent people die. So, when the next premonition depicts her own death, Lexi is faced with the decision of a lifetime. As if an ill-fated future isn’t enough to deal with, a series of strange illnesses and murders devastate her small town, and co-worker Jessica Nelson insists Lexi can help.

According to Jessica, everyone is born with an inner energy called Essence. Only a select few, Amethysts, can control Essence and heal people. Jessica claims to be an Amethyst and asks Lexi to join her and a group of her friends as they track the murderers. Despite her personal plight, Lexi considers joining them.

Then again, Lexi discovers secrets run deep among Jessica’s friends. Not only do they have a hidden agenda, but they also harbor extraordinary abilities. And they have connections with the Ray-pacs – the sadistic killers who are preying on human Essence. Ultimately, Lexi must decide if life, not death, equals salvation. And if so, is she willing to make certain sacrifices and join her friends in eradicating the Ray-pacs?

Amethyst is the first novel in the Guardian series, a spellbinding, young adult, urban fantasy series. One that wouldn’t be complete without a love triangle at the heart of the story.

Bella Rossi may be nearing thirty, but her life is just starting to get interesting. When her Italian-turned-Texan parents hand over the family wedding planning business, Bella is determined not to let them down. She quickly books a “Boot Scoot’n” wedding that would make any Texan proud. There’s only one catch–she’s a country music numbskull because her family only listens to Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. Where will she find a DJ on such short notice who knows his Alan Jackson from his Keith Urban?

When a misunderstanding leads her to the DJ (and man) of her dreams, things start falling into place. But with a family like hers, nothing is guaranteed. Can the perfect Texan wedding survive a pizza-making uncle with mob ties, an aunt who is a lawsuit waiting to happen, and a massive delivery of 80 cowboy boots? And will Bella ever get to plan her own wedding?

Book one in the Weddings by Bella series, Fools Rush In is fun, fresh, and full of surprises. Readers will love the flavorful combination of Italian and Tex-Mex, and the hilarity that ensues when cultures clash.

But in her wildest dreams, she never imagined her dear godmother would arrange a Season—or convince the ton’s most eligible bachelor to take her under his wing.

Chelsea with her unspoiled eye saw beyond Wainwright’s pursuit of hedonism to the intriguing man underneath. But to her shock, it appeared his heart belonged to her horrid Aunt Augusta!
