Ruth West - Thursday, July 05, 2018

I learned my fate on my eighteenth birthday. The day my father was murdered and I became the virgin Queen.

The Lord of Darkness has risen. He means to conquer my kingdom and take me as his bride. But to succeed, he needs the power of the five Sacred Sources.

I must unite with the Fire Born. The Dragon Lord. Mate with him if he commands it, and then seek out the others, one by one.

The Warrior. The Wizard. The Mystic. The Rogue.

I must secure their allegiance using whatever means necessary, whether it be to offer them riches or a title… or my body and a place by my side on the throne.

The Oracle says only with their help will I accomplish my mission. Avenge my father’s death - and save the World of the Seven Stars from an evil as old as the Universe.

NeverSea by Jenetta Penner and David R. Bernstein

Ruth West - Wednesday, April 04, 2018

First the floods consumed the Earth.
Then the Syndicate took everything from me.
My childhood, my first love—my humanity.


No thanks to Peter—my backstabbing best friend—I escaped. But only after I was forced to shoot James, the boy I've loved for years.

Now the Syndicate's cruel experiments have intensified. They will do anything to replicate the abilities they forced on us. To take them down and get James back, I have to trust Peter. After what he did, I don't know if that's possible.

The Syndicate might control the waters of the NeverSea, but they won't control me.

NeverSea is a dystopian fantasy packed with action, romance, and a sci-fi / fairy tale twist. Readers who enjoyed The Lunar Chronicles and Red Queen will love this epic young adult series.

High Voltage by Karen Marie Moning

Ruth West - Thursday, March 29, 2018

There is no action without consequence.
 
Dani O’Malley was nine years old when the delusional, sadistic Rowena transformed her into a ruthless killer. Years later, Dani is tough and hardened, yet achingly vulnerable and fiercely compassionate, living alone by her own exacting code. Despite the scars on her body, and driven by deeper ones carved into her soul, no one is more committed to protecting Dublin. By day she ensures the safety of those she rescues, by night she hunts evil, dispensing justice swiftly and without mercy, determined to give to those she cares for the peace she has never known.  
 
There is no power without price.
 
When the Faerie Queen used the dangerously powerful Song of Making to heal the world from the damage done by the Hoar Frost King, catastrophic magic seeped deep into the earth, giving rise to horrifying, unforeseen consequences—and now deadly enemies plot in the darkness, preparing to enslave the human race and unleash an ancient reign of Hell on Earth.
 
There is no future without sacrifice.
 
With the lethal, immortal Ryodan at her side, armed with the epic Sword of Light, Dani once again battles to save the world, but her past comes back to haunt her with a vengeance, demanding an unspeakable price for the power she needs to save the human race. And no one—not even Ryodan, who would move the very stars for her—can save her this time. Read More

Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs

Ruth West - Wednesday, March 28, 2018

In her bestselling Alpha and Omega series, Patricia Briggs "spins tales of werewolves, coyote shifters, and magic and, my, does she do it well" (USATODAY.com). Now mated werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham face a threat like no other--one that lurks too close to home...

They are the wild and the broken. The werewolves too damaged to live safely among their own kind. For their own good, they have been exiled to the outskirts of Aspen Creek, Montana. Close enough to the Marrok's pack to have its support; far enough away to not cause any harm.

With their Alpha out of the country, Charles and Anna are on call when an SOS comes in from the fae mate of one such wildling. Heading into the mountainous wilderness, they interrupt the abduction of the wolf--but can't stop blood from being shed. Now Charles and Anna must use their skills--his as enforcer, hers as peacemaker--to track down the attackers, reopening a painful chapter in the past that springs from the darkest magic of the witchborn... Read More

Immortal Sleepers Blood Awakening by Miranda Nichols

Ruth West - Wednesday, December 06, 2017

An Interview with Miranda Nichols, author of Immortal Sleepers.


How did you find your love of writing?


Writing for me has always been my hobby. I’m one of those people who don’t really like firm endings. I like for stories to continue on forever. So I often find myself dreaming up scenarios of what happened after the credits roll or the last page is turned. Then sometimes those continuations evolve into new stories with new characters and new settings and become an entirely new world for me to immerse myself and my readers in.

Did you have any big influences from other authors or even family members?

I draw inspiration from a lot of places so it’s hard for me to give credit to any one person. I’ve garnered a lot of support over the years from my Mom and other family members. I give a lot of credit to my agent, Stephanie Hansen, for pushing me to get my work out there for people to read.

Your characters seem so lifelike, were they made from examples in your life?

My personality is the type that makes it easy for me to relate to and understand other people. This helps a lot during character development. I have a general idea of how my characters think and what their values are. The entire character gets flushed out during the writing process as they react to the situations I put them in. I never really know how things are going to go until they happen, sometimes it’s even a surprise to me. That’s what makes the writing process exciting for me!

Is there anything you want to say to your readers that you haven’t yet had a chance to say?

Please buy my book when it comes out on January 29th! I always appreciate hearing when people enjoy my writing so reviews are always appreciated! And thank you in advance for your support!

Is there anything in the works for you? More books?

Yes, Blood Awakening is the first of the Immortal Sleepers series for which I have a total of twelve books planned. I am currently working on book two in the series, Awakened in Flame. There is a preview for this story at the end of Blood Awakening so be sure to check it out!

Beast by Anna Hackett

Ruth West - Thursday, November 02, 2017

Abducted by alien slavers and taken to a lawless desert world, the last thing starship pilot Mia expects is to find herself in the protective, brawny arms of a wild, blue-skinned alien.

Rescued by gladiators on the alien world of Carthago, Mia is working to find other abducted humans who are still lost. But someone else also needs her help--the untamed alien who's saved her twice. Rescued from vicious fight rings he's fought in since he was a child, Vek is prone to losing control in aggressive fits of rage...and Mia discovers that she is the only who can calm him. As she finds herself drawn to the man beneath the beast, she knows that with his enhanced senses, Vek can help her find her friends.

For years, all Vek'ker has known is death, darkness, and killing. Despite his newfound freedom, he is struggling to control his rages and withdrawal from the drugs his captors used on him. Only one scent soothes him, one voice calms him, and one woman is his light in the dark. Vek will do anything to protect Mia and make her happy...including vowing to find her friends.

With the gladiators from the House of Galen, Vek and Mia follow mysterious clues into a dangerous part of the desert on the trail of the missing humans. They are drawn closer together but as they enter the deadly Illusion Mountains, they have no idea of the dangers lying in wait for them, or how far they will both be pushed to their limits in order to survive.

Note to readers: This sci fi romance contains a lot of action (think wild gladiatorial fights and daring rescues), tough gladiators (the warriors of the House of Galen) and a steamy romance (between a a wild blue alien and a small, tough woman from Earth). So if you like it fast, and gritty, and sexy, this is for you!

Draekon Heart by Lee Savino and Lili Zander

Ruth West - Saturday, October 07, 2017

Back on Earth is a man who wants to kill me.
Back on Earth, I slept with a knife under my pillow to be safe.

There’s no coffee on the prison planet. No pizza. No chocolate.
I should be thrilled that there might be a way back home.

Except I don’t want to return.
Here, I feel safe.

Because Mike isn’t here.
And because Thrax and Zorux are.

But I’ve sworn off guys.
No matter how hot they are.
No matter how much I want to kiss them.
No matter how much I want to run my hands all over their hard bodies…

There are a hundred reasons why the three of us shouldn’t be together.
There’s still no sign of my friends.
The rescue attempt is spiraling into disaster.

And most importantly, I’m fairly sure that the Draekons I’m falling in love with aren’t my mates.

Draekon Heart is the third book in the Dragons in Exile series. It’s a full-length, standalone science fiction dragon-shifter MFM menage romance story featuring a wary human female, and two sexy aliens that win her trust and her heart. (No M/M) Happily-ever-after guaranteed!

Bring the Heat by G.A. Aiken

Ruth West - Friday, September 08, 2017

HE SAYS . . .

I, Aidan the Divine, am, well divine. My name was given to me by the Dragon Queen herself! I’m a delight! Cheerful. Charming. And a mighty warrior who is extremely handsome with a very large and well-hidden hoard of gold. I am also royal born, despite the fact that most in my family are horrendous beings that don’t deserve to live. And yet, Branwen the Awful—a low-born, no less—either tells me to shut up or, worse, ignores me completely.

SHE SAYS . . .

I’ll admit, I ignore Aidan the Divine because it annoys him. A lot. But, we have so much to do right now, I can’t worry about why he keeps staring at me, or why he always sits so close, or why he keeps looking at me like he’s thinking about kissing me. We have our nations to save and no time for such bloody foolishness . . . no matter how good Aidan looks or how long his spiked tail is. Because if we’re going to win this war before it destroys everything we love, we’ll have to face our enemies together, side by side and without distractions. But if we make it out alive, who knows what the future will hold . . .
