The Lasaran
Book #1 Aldebarian Alliance
By Dianne Duvall
April 21, 2020

New York Times bestselling author Dianne Duvall brings readers the first novel in a thrilling new sci-fi romance series full of action, intrigue, humor, and happily-ever-afters.

Taelon searches the galaxy for his younger sister, who mysteriously disappeared while on a diplomatic mission. When an ally reveals that she was seized and is being held prisoner on Earth, Taelon descends upon the blue planet, intent on freeing her and exacting vengeance. However, all does not go as planned. Before he can find her, Taelon is captured and becomes the subject of torturous experiments. For what feels like an eternity, all he knows is pain and fury… until a mind tentatively touches his own and a woman’s voice forever changes his world.

After suffering tragic losses, Lisa is finally beginning to carve out a future for herself when chance sends her to the Anomalous Cognition Research Institute. What at first appears to be a benign organization seeking participants for a psychic study instead turns out to be a government facility harboring a much darker intent. Lisa discovers this too late and soon becomes the unwilling subject of a terrifying experiment. Just as fear and desperation threaten to consume her, a deep, compelling voice penetrates the looming insanity and lends her hope.

Having seen only the worst of humanity, Taelon is shocked when Lisa risks everything to free him. Together the two make their escape, and Taelon finds himself fascinated by the small human woman who—despite all she’s suffered—can still laugh and tease and lure smiles from him. Friendship swiftly grows between them as they work together to evade soldiers intent on capturing them and find themselves hunted by mystifying preternatural beings. Through it all, Lisa steadfastly remains by his side, stealing more of his heart each day while she helps him unravel the mystery of his sister’s fate. Can they find his sister before the hunters find them? If they survive their quest, will Taelon have to bid Lisa farewell… or can he coax her into leaving her planet and joining him for the adventure of a lifetime?

5 Fun Facts About Dianne Duvall

Hello! Thank you for joining us and helping us celebrate the release of The Lasaran, the first book in my new Aldebarian Alliance series. If you like sci-fi and paranormal romance that includes strong heroes who adore strong women and lots of action, passion, humor, and happily-ever-afters, then I hope you’ll pick up a copy.

Since I love getting to know fellow booklovers, I thought it would be fun to share 5 fun facts about me:

1

When I’m at the dentist, leaning back in the chair and having my teeth cleaned, I stare up at the ceiling and imagine one of the tiles slowly, stealthily sliding back to reveal… a wide, wild arrange of things. All kinds of chaos has erupted in that office in my imagination. And for the Immortal Guardians fans out there, yes, some of it was kicked off by Sheldon.

2

I once played a zombie (as an extra) in a short independent horror film. I was actually the special effects makeup artist for the film and made “my own entrails” fall out. LOL

3

Though I’m only 5’1”, I’m a pretty good free throw shooter. LOL. I remember one time when I was in college… I was in the gym, waiting for my aerobics class to begin and got bored, so I picked up a basketball someone had left behind and started shooting from the free throw line. By the time I hit a dozen free throws in a row, every guy in the gym had stopped what he was doing and started clapping and cheering me on. They were all humorously amazed.

4

I recently discovered the audiobooks based on the Alien film series. And though I prefer to have romance mixed into my sci-fi, I’m really enjoying these. I don’t know why Hollywood hasn’t made them into movies! They’re really entertaining.

5

I love to make people laugh, which is probably why humor always seems to find its way into my books, no matter how dark or dire circumstances become. Laughter and teasing have always been a big part of my life and have certainly help me through tough times, so I always grin big when a reader mentions getting odd looks when she or he bursts out laughing while reading one of my books.

So . . . in the interest of getting to know each other, tell me one fun fact about you.

[ARC REVIEW] How to Elude a Vampire by Alice Winters

About the book

How To Elude A Vampire
(VRC: Vampire Related Crimes #2)
by Alice Winters

ebook
Publication Date: April 16th 2020

Finn
When the vampire stalking me sent me a letter, I was prepared for my new life with the man I love to get thrown into chaos. But as the days stretch on and nothing happens, I become determined not to allow that monster to rule my life, and decide that Marcus and I will move on. We can’t always allow the past to haunt us. If that includes pestering Marcus and harassing my fellow detectives, they’d better learn to love it, because I’m not going anywhere even if they like to remind me I’m the only human working in a department filled with vampires. But Marcus loves me for who I am, even if he’s not crazy about the cute pet names I call him like McBitey. Being with him is more than I could have dreamed, and even with the trials thrown in our way, he never fails to make me smile.

Marcus
When Finn joined the VRC, I never expected how everything would change. Now that he’s the brightest part of my days, I’m unsure of how I existed without him. Before Finn and I can settle into our new life together, we’re called in as lead detectives when a body is found in the river, and the case soon hits closer to home than we anticipated. I want to be by Finn’s side to keep him safe, but at the same time, Finn’s fighting for the freedom he’s always wanted after being forced to live a life of fear. What I do know is that my future is with Finn, no matter what happens.

How to Elude a Vampire is the second in the VRC series and contains a display of manly prowess that doesn’t go as desired, reluctant bonding with a new pet, interfering with a snarky Russian’s love life, misuse of office supplies, a vampire with a killer fashion sense but very little game, a total lack of ancient kung fu powers, a feisty human who almost always gets his way and the possessive vampire who adores him.

review

~ ARC won through a giveaway and I’m in no way obligated to write a review… but I want to lol

I loved and adored book one “How to Vex a Vampire”. It was the first book I gave five stars to in a very long time and I wasn’t sure if “How to Elude a Vampire” would be able to reach the same height… It was even BETTER than the first one. How am I supposed to rate this one if I gave book one five stars? I guess I’ll give this one 5.5 stars out of 5?

I absolutely loved it. It made me laugh and cry from laughing and it make me cry cry. This book was a mix of hilarious and serious moments and I loved it.

Also I’m kind of giddy because I actually was right with my guess who the evil vampire was. My guess wasn’t actually based on any facts. I just didn’t like the character so I wanted that character to be evil lol but let me tell you, totally not obvious who it was. I was actually shocked that I was right, I just didn’t expect that it would actually happen. Let’s move on before I accidently give any clues about who this character might be.

We also got a new character in this book. I was equal parts annoyed and in love with that particular character and can’t wait to see more about him.

Then, of course, Marcus and Finn. I love those two and their relationship. They hold a special place in my heart together with Sloane and Dex from the Thirds series by Charlie Cochet.

By the way, I got this arc yesterday and I have already read it twice. It’s really good, guys. If you loved the first one, you will absolutely love How to Elude a Vampire as well.

Now if anyone would please be so kind to tell me that Alice Winters is already writing book three… PLEASE?

Rating: 5.5 stars

 

[ARC REVIEW + Release Blast] Pop Star by Eden Finley

POP STAR by Eden Finley

Release Date: April 8, 2020

Cover Design: Cate Ashwood
Photographer: Wander Aguiar
Model: Jacob K.

Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance

AMAZON PURCHASE LINK

Harley

What happens when the most successful boy band on the planet breaks up?

How about twenty thousand fans screaming my name.

But the price of fame comes with an increased risk to my safety.

I’ve been avoiding the dreaded B word for as long as I can, but after a close call with a rambunctious fan, I can’t do it anymore.

It’s time to give in.

I need to hire a full-time bodyguard.

And when he shows up, he not only screams badass, he’s another B word I try to stay away from: boyfriend material.

Brix

Protecting people is not what my company usually does, but the boss knows I need money, and the pop star is offering an insane amount to live with him and make sure no more crazy fans break into his house.

I’m doing it for the money and nothing else.

He may be the prettiest man I’ve ever seen, and I may feel sorry for the celebrity life he’s been forced into since he was a teenager, but that doesn’t mean anything.

Just because he fascinates me, that doesn’t mean I like him.

It doesn’t.

Professionalism. I’m gonna live it. Breathe it. Enforce it … Mostly.

ADD TO YOUR TBR


~~ Review ~~

Let me be honest with you and tell you that I went into this book not knowing whether or not I would like Harley. I wasn’t really a fan of him in Hat Trick, even though he redeemed himself in the end. Let me also tell you that my worries were unnecessary. Harley and Brix together were hilarious. Also I made the mistake to start this book at midnight – why do I also do that? – I couldn’t put it down.

I absolutely recommend this book. It was fun, also you don’t need to read the Fake Boyfriend series first to understand Pop Star but I totally recommend that one as well.

Rating: 4,5 stars

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Eden Finley is an Amazon bestselling author who writes steamy contemporary romances that are full of snark and light-hearted fluff.

She doesn’t take anything too seriously and lives to create an escape from real life for her readers. The ideas always begin with a wackadoodle premise, and she does her best to turn them into romances with heart.

With a short attention span that rivals her son’s, she writes multiple different pairings: MM, MMF, and MF.

She’s also an Australian girl and apologises for her Australianisms that sometimes don’t make sense to anyone else.
