Cover Reveal: Compulsive Fascinations by N Isabelle Blanco

CF
Event Organized by ❤MaE Book Tours & Promo Stars Services
❤Cover Design by: N. Isabelle Blanco
Synopsis You get hurt once; you assume that’s the norm. You see others suffer; you assume that’s the norm, too. At least, that’s what Livana once did. One rough go-around was enough for her. After that, she kept it simple, no strings attached. It was just easier that way. Even necessary. Until she went out one night and met Calum Alexander, a man whose intensity broke through each of her defenses, leaving her vulnerable. Afraid to fall in love, she tries to keep some of her walls up around herself, even though Calum is determined not to let her. Faced with a man that seems intent on possessing her, Liv knows it’s a mere matter of time before she no longer has a choice. That is...until Calum's own insecurities come to the fore, throwing their new, fragile relationship into a tailspin. Will the feelings between them be strong enough to keep them together, or will their issues get in the way of what they had just started to build?

Exclusive MaE Interview with N. Isabelle Blanco!
Pssst: She finally talks about the Obsessions Series! Does this mean we're getting Ang and Luke soon? We're praying!

1. What can we expect with the continuation of Liv and Calum’s story?
  Nyddi: Oh man. It’s totally different from book one yet it’s makes perfect sense that their story is now heading in the direction it’s heading. Calum began discovering a whole new side to himself in book one, but it was still so simple and so “Sweet” almost. In this book, things get crazier, darker, more dramatic. Liv is dealing with her relationship phobias/issues as well as her feelings for Calum. Calum is dealing with an utter lack of control because of her that he’s never dealt with before, and they’re both absolutely clueless as to how to deal with what’s happening.

  2. Why the new direction?
  Nyddi: I think it was always meant to be. When I wrote the first book, Calum’s personality developed on its own and he was so much more in control at first than any male I had ever written. He wasn’t an innocent, but he definitely wasn’t as wild as the men I usually write. At least, not that he was aware of. But I remember writing the scene when he first saw Livana, and his visceral reaction to her, and I felt that dominating “I’m going to pull your hair and own you” part of him awakening and I sensed his panic at that. He truly does not know how to accept this new side of him at first, especially when faced with such an independent woman such as Liv, who seems to sometimes not care whether she has him or not. As for Livana, I truly think some people might not like her at first. This book is in her POV, and we get a front row seat to her mindset. She was hurt and betrayed in the worse way and she was really, really young when it happened. When you get hurt that bad at such a young age, you erect these faulty defense mechanisms in order to protect yourself from it happening ever again. Liv now has to deal with Calum tearing down each of those defenses one by one, although she’s nowhere near ready to trust anyone again.

  3. How does this book tie in to what will be book 3 of your Allure series?

  Nyddi: Well, the two series are tied together anyway, and they all are leading to my Obsessions Series (Angelina and Lucas). This book ties in because many of the events are happening during book two of Allure (Allure Magnified) and there are events at the end of this book that will be occurring during the beginning of Wrecked Allure, which will be the third and last installment of the Allure series. And I will say no more on the matter! LOL I don’t want to give away too many spoilers :p

4. Tell us about the sex scenes. Calum is slowly losing more and more control when it comes to Liv, and we’re dying to know how this translates in the bedroom 

^_~ Nyddi: Who said anything about a bedroom? *Runs to check* Yup. I don’t think there’s a single love scene in this book that takes place anywhere near a bed…although, if you count his couch, then yeah, it was “near”. Then again, his house is really big LOL Calum is exploring all these crazy new urges he has because of Livana, so trust me when I say that the new, upgraded Calum 2.0 is going to definitely rock her world. I’m barely surviving writing him!

  5. What else are you working on now and what can we expect from you in the future?

Nyddi: The project I’m most immersed in, aside from CF, is Need. I’m writing that book with K.I. Lynn and OMG. I’ve already predicted that it will break me once we’re done writing it. It’s turned into one of the most emotional, fun, frustrating rollercoaster rides of my career. We’re almost at the halfway point and I have to say that I have never been prouder of something I’ve worked on before. Bringing an alpha male to life alongside K.I. Lynn is exhilarating, hormonally painful, and spiritual all at once LOL! (I really, really mean this.) I am so excited for us to get this one done so we can show it off to the world. After Need is finished I have the following books in the cue to be written and published in 2014/2015:
 Wrecked Allure (Allure #3) Blood Drenched Conquest (Szolites #3) Systematic Seige: Provocative Tendencies (SSPT Episode #1) Broken Headboard, Power Panties, & Penis Charms (Broken Headboards #1) Damage Owed (Retaliations #2) Systematic Seige: Provocative Tendencies (SSPT Episode #2) The Exchange Part 2 (Project Sapphire #2) And these are only the ones I'm allowed to announce so far! So yes. The next year or so will be the busiest year of my life. But I wouldn’t change it for the world. Thank you so much to all my fans that keep pushing me and keep me going. I could never live without your support and I go to sleep and wake up in the morning with the drive to write faster because of you <3

Blog Tour: Dissension by K A Salidas

I received a copy of Dissension, book 1 of Chronicles of the Uprising, in exchange for my review.

The world as humanity knew it ended, and humans and vampires formed a truce in order to survive the harsh conditions.

Mira is one of the top vampire gladiators and despite being in captivity for over 30 years, her spirit refuses to be broken. During an escape attempt she meets Lucian, a high up human who seems genuinely interested in the vampire race, and in Mira, and is shocked to discover the true cruelties being enacted upon them. When a fight doesn't go her way, Mira learns a shocking truth and has to decide whose side she's really on...

(Sarath Web #1)
Publication date: August 5th 2014

Synopsis:
Sixteen-year-old Katherine Thompson wasn’t trained to rule a coven. That was her sister – perfect, beautiful Rose. But when a mysterious plane crash kills off the heir presumptive of the Sandersville coven she has no choice. After stepping in to fill her sister’s shoes, Katherine realizes she didn’t have a clue – faery wars, depressed trolls and angry unicorns are just the beginning.
For centuries, her family has served the high Queens on both sides of the Atlantic but it is a well-known rule that mid-level witches stay away from high-level Queens. But when Katherine’s youngest cousin vanishes without a trace in the Atlanta court and no one wants to investigate, Katherine decides to step into the darkness on her own. She soon discovers that nothing, especially in the Atlanta High Queen’s court, is as it seems.
When she accidentally opens a rift in the search for her cousin, Richard LeCross, the Queen’s warlock, decides that Katherine is more trouble than she’s worth. He determines that this mortal, dangerously close to becoming a High Queen, needs to die. But killing Katherine is easier said than done. For a young woman who’s always believed in right versus wrong, she’s about to go head over heels into the dark side.

Excerpt 

You know the old saying ‘If I tell you, I’ll have to kill you?’ Katherine thought wryly while she waited for her sister and Derrick to do their worst. Well, I have the opposite problem. If I show you my gifts, you’ll be dead. There’s no explaining, no second guessing. Which was why even though she was furious with her older sister, she couldn’t defend herself. Not as a witch. Katherine might not like her sister, but she loved her. Loved her in the way that siblings that fought like cats and dogs, but still hung together against a common enemy did. Since they were rarely on the same side of anything recently, Rose and Katherine had yet to face anything worse than the schoolyard bully they had taken down together when Katherine was in kindergarten and Rose was in second grade. That incident had proved that blood trumped friends, at least in the all-out war over the marbles container, that is.
But now? Now, Rose and I never really see eye-to-eye at all, Katherine thought with a shiver. She must have been desperate to invite me on this stupid escapade. I know I was pretty stupid to accept the invitation. And now I’m going to pay for that. That hope that for once Rose wanted me along for me, as her sister…as a friend.
