Midnight Ink ~ 8 Best Selling Authors, 8 Brand New Novellas ~ Spotlight Tour
One tattoo shop in one infamous city sets the stage for 8 stories about resolutions, kink, love and ink. Get ready to let the good times roll!
Report For Booty
When Burke Levine got marching orders, he couldn’t bear to make his girlfriend Chavon White a military widow. Years later, discovering his name tattooed on her perfect ass via a New Orleans’ artist’s portfolio confirms his epic mistake. Will Midnight Ink’s New Year’s Eve party grant them a second chance?
Picture Her Bound
She’s a police officer desperate enough to break the rules. He’s the bounty hunter standing between her and ruin. Picture Her Bound–the first book in the brand new Bayou Bound series from Sidney Bristol–a story of right, wrong and binding pleasures.
Robin L. Rotham
Not So Over Eli
Paramedic Bart Rigger finally has the life he wants rather than the one his father dictated, thanks to hot new fiancée Rhonda Giannetti. But a whirlwind trip to New Orleans puts it all at risk when he’s forced to confront unresolved feelings for his first love, tattoo artist Elijah Bell.
All Sophie wants is a tattoo to commemorate her battle with cancer. What she gets is celebrity tattoo artist Declan Ross, the same sexy bad-boy who used to rock her world. This time, they’ve both got scars and it’s still the ones you can’t see that are the hardest to cover.
To The Bone
Etta Santos has one resolution—to cover up the last visible evidence of her past. When Christie Ryder, sexy musician and new owner of Midnight Ink, pursues her, he seems too good to be true. His music touches her soul, but can she risk trusting another bad boy with her heart?
When the tattoo artist Finn Carter lined up for his visit to New Orleans turns out to be the mysteriously alluring sub he played on New Year’s Eve at The Bastille, the city’s BDSM club, more than his skin will be marked forever—and Rosie is just the woman to bring this playboy to his knees.

Blank Canvas, Big Easy, book one

Ink Inspired ~ Montgomery Ink #0.5
Order links coming soon
This is the prequel novella to the Montgomery Ink series. You will be able to find it within the special Midnight Ink bundle on Nov 19th, 2013 for a low price!
Shepard Montgomery loves the feel of a needle in his hands, the ink that he lays on another, and the thrill he gets when his art is finished, appreciated, and loved. At least that’s the way it used to be. Now he’s struggling to figure out why he’s a tattoo artist at all as he wades through the college frat boys and tourists who just want a thrill, not a permanent reminder of their trip. Once he sees the Ice Princess walk through Midnight Ink’s doors though, he knows he might just have found the inspiration he needs.
Shea Little has spent her life listening to her family’s desires. She went to the best schools, participated in the most proper of social events, and almost married the man her family wanted for her. When she ran from that and found a job she actually likes, she thought she’d rebelled enough. Now though, she wants one more thing—only Shepard stands in the way. She’ll not only have to let him learn more about her in order to get inked, but find out what it means to be truly free.

Veiled Innocence by Ella Frank – due out April ’14
“Tick, tick, tock.
That’s all I have now.
A small room, a photograph, and time.
This was supposed to be the best year of my life.
That’s what everyone said—they lied.
I thought I could bend the world to my will, make them see it my way.
Convince them that our passion was not a crime, make time stand still.
I was wrong.
The clock keeps ticking, the world did not bend, and now…
Now he is gone.”

Recommendation: Masquerade (Book #10, Vampire Realms series) by Felicity Heaton
Masquerade by F E Heaton
“Ten years have passed since Sophis and Vivek, two vampires of the Venia bloodline, came close to death at the hands of twin hunters Aleksis and Izabella Romanov. The events of that night turned Sophis and Vivek against each other, shattering their close friendship and driving them apart.
Now, on the eve of a centenary Creator Day masquerade and at a time when things between them are dangerously close to separating them forever, they uncover a small army of vampire hunters in Saint Petersburg, led by their nemeses, Aleksis and Izabella.
With the safety of the rulers of the seven pure vampire bloodlines in their hands and their chance for vengeance hanging in the balance, can Sophis and Vivek face their past and overcome their differences? Will they realise their true feelings for each other before it’s too late or will the hunters finally claim their lives as their deadly plot to destroy the bloodlines unfolds?”
My wee review:
As with all of the others in the Vampire Realms series, I love this book!! Felicity has created a world & a cast of heroes and heroines that I just love to visit!!
Fantastic main characters with lots of passion, attraction & tension. The story moves along at a quick, action packed pace.
I was so pleased to see most of our old favourite heroes at the ball!!
Another great success from Felicity. I look forward to reading the next book in the VR series!!

Cover Reveal – Ahead of the Darkness by Simone Nicole
“It has been a long, long time since I’ve seen your little face, chérie. Not once did you visit. That really hurt; after all, it was thanks to you I was convicted. That’s not something you forget. I thought it was time—a visit was due. Seeing as you wouldn’t come to me, I thought it only right I come to you. Sadly, you weren’t home, but your furry feline was more than accommodating . . . I’ll be seeing you soon, mon chérie. I’ll always find you . . .”
For six years, a letter has dictated Amelia’s future. She’s running from a past that refuses to stop, always trying to get one step ahead. Amelia is clever, resilient, and refuses to slip up. Relying only on herself, she’ll be anything and anyone she needs to survive. But everyone slips up . . . eventually. You can’t always stay ahead of the darkness.
INTERVIEW WITH SIMONE:
1: What’s your favorite restaurant?
My sisters house 😛
2: What’s your favorite room to decorate?
Hmmm, the living room. It has all my favourite things in it. TV, Gaming consoles, DVD collection (all alphabetized), fancy hardback books, chess sets (I collect them) and comfy couches. All that’s missing is the bed, the rest of my books and the laptop.

REVIEW & RECOMMENDATION ~ The Lost Souls (A Holy Trinity Novella) by Madeline Sheehan
‘THE LOST SOULS’ by MADELINE SHEEHAN
“Tahyra Petros tried desperately to save herself and her sister, and instead ended up forever changed.
Shandor Asenov battled with death, and lost.
Hockey Sava, in a valiant attempt at saving his friends, vanished.
Caroline Andrews lost her brother during a violent attempt at survival and was subsequently left alone in the hands of fate.
And, Marko Siwak disappeared in the middle of the night and was never heard from again.
These are the stories of their journeys lost in a world where devastation knows no boundaries, where enemies await them at every turn, and where heartache, loss, and death supersede happiness, peace, and love…and the destiny that awaits them.”
I’ve been looking forward to ‘The Lost Souls’ since I finished book #2, ‘My Soul To Take’ and boyza, I was not disappointed…. Madeline has created an awesome world full of darkness, magic, love, loss & heartache and I loved every single second of the emotional rollercoaster I found myself on!
In ‘The Lost Souls’ we catch up with characters we met in the previous 2 books. Hockey, Shandor, Carrie, Marko and a few others. The book covers the time from the guys in the clan leaving camp to go on the unsuccessful raid until slightly before the point where we left things at the end of MSTT.
We get glimpses of Xan and see how much he is suffering from the loss of Trinity and his subsequent finding out that she may still be alive – glad to say he has (finally) given up his manwhoring ways, but I’m still mad at him…. what a stupid, stupid man, that is so gonna bite him in the butt very soon!!!
We catch up with Becki who, once again, isn’t leading the life she would chose if she had a choice. We see Nico, Tobar and some other clan members and find out what happens with them.
‘The Lost Souls’ doesn’t just apply to Trin/Xan/Gerik and their separation and/or relationship but takes on a whole new meaning when we look at the characters in this book and the path their lives have taken since we last saw them.
I am a HUGE paranormal fan and I just ADORE the Trinity books. ‘The Lost Souls’ beautifully ties together what has happened so far in ‘The Soul Mates’ & ‘My Soul To Take’ and sets us up for the final instalment ‘My Heart & Soul’ which is due out in the summer of 2014. I haven’t been so excited about a book in quite a while and it’s gonna take all I have to wait patiently to find out how everything works out!!!
If you haven’t checked out this series yet, do so NOW, it is so worth the read!!!
I love that the story is so very different from most other books that are out there and the situations that the characters find themselves in are far removed from anything that could or would happen in everyday life.
The story will really make you think and, if you’re anything like me, you’ll cry bloody buckets but you’ll also laugh, smile and feel a little bit hopeful that maybe, just maybe, things will turn out right!!!
Can’t wait for more of the clan and to find out what happens with Xan, Trinity & Gerik the dragon….
Have to admit, I’m still #TeamXan….. 😉

Marie Harte – Recent & Upcoming book releases
RECENT RELEASE ~ MIRROR MIRROR
Every Halloween, Grandmother Rovela flees her house in fear of a ghost trapped in a cursed mirror. According to superstition, only on Halloween can the ghost be freed.
For years Linc Barron’s tried to avoid his attraction to his smart-mouthed friend Mandy Rovela, to no avail. He wants her, but more, he’s in love with her. And it’s high time he does something about it. So he makes a wager she can’t resist: twenty-four hours with him at her beck and call, if she’ll spend the night with him in her grandmother’s house. And ghost or no ghost, he plans to have Mandy.
Mandy has had the hots for Linc for years, but there’s no way she’s becoming another notch on his bedpost. So she agrees to his stupid wager – though no other Rovela would ever consider it – for a chance to win his heart.
But the ghost is not only real, it’s also far more than a trapped spirit. Dominic de Sange, the man in the mirror, is an earth mage who needs sex to gain power. And he’ll use everything Linc and Mandy have to push him back into the spirit realm where he belongs.
