Blurb:

When Hunter and Asha’s worlds collide, neither is able to walk away from the other.

Asha has a simple plan for her life—her hopefully soon-to-be immortal life. All she’s ever wanted was to be so powerful that no one could ever hurt her again, and once she becomes a Vampire her dream will come true. Sure, being a Vampire’s protégé isn’t the easiest job a girl could have, but there are far tougher roads she could be walking, like following in her drug-addicted mother’s footsteps.

Hunter Arany hates Vampires, and with good reason. So when Dark Wolf Enterprises is forced to hire a group of the blood-suckers to find out who’s been stealing company money, he’s sure having them around will be a problem. He never figured it would the Vampires’ human servant who causes him the most trouble—trouble of the love and life-mate kind.

He’s hoping to convince Asha a brighter future exists in his arms, but old dreams fade slowly and can become living nightmares—of the dying kind.

Excerpt:

The automatic doors began to close.  “Welcome to Dark Wolf Enterprises,” Andras announced.

The doors reversed on their tracks, opening again. Another Vampire—Hunter sniffed at the air—no, not Vampire. She didn’t have the same floral scent as the others. Human.

Hunter hadn’t expected them to bring their food source to the company and from the telepathic cursing that Andras sent his way, neither had he.  “What is she doing here?” Andras pushed the thought to Hunter.

The air instantly thickened as the Shifters watched the female. The human wasn’t beautiful, not like the Vampires, but she was pretty. And while she didn’t have an intoxicating aroma, she smelled…nice. Her skin wasn’t the pale-ashen one of a Vampire’s, either. Her brown hue radiated with life and energy. Another dead giveaway that she was human? Her beating heart and shallow breathing. The Vampires had neither.

“I pray that she’s an accountant. I’m not watching them drink from her,” Hunter said.

He’d run into plenty of Vampire junkies before and this woman didn’t strike him as the type who would lust after a blood-sucker. While she wasn’t dressed in a business suit like the others, she still looked professional. Her dark hair fell smoothly past her shoulders. She wore it styled in a blunt cut—sharp bangs and sharp ends. She had on a cream, low-cut silk blouse that showed a hint of cleavage. His eyes were immediately drawn to her round and perky breasts. Accentuating her long and shapely legs was a dark blue pencil skirt that went to her knees and the matching blue heels.

“Trudy will freak if she finds out that we’re letting them feed here. Didn’t we forbid this in the contract?” Kristof asked.

While the others arranged themselves in a line, the human did as well, but positioned herself one step behind the Vampires. Her placement told him everything. She was part of the group, but not really. Hunter’s wolf had lingered at the front, ready to come forth and fight if needed. But this time, instead of growling in the back of his mind and being on edge, his wolf was having a different reaction.

Curiosity.

Hunter could picture the wolf’s nose sniffing and poking at the barrier that separated man from beast, trying to find out more about the human who stood by the Vampires. Odd, since his wolf had never been interested in a human before. Whenever Hunter had taken one to bed, the wolf showed his indifference by sleeping. Hunter didn’t try to push back, he let his wolf satisfy his curiosity and afterward he would focus his attention on the Vampires where it should be.

“Forgive us,” Andras said. “We weren’t expecting your…assistant to join you this evening. Our contract is very clear regarding this matter.”

The woman met Andras’ eyes. “I have a master’s degree in IT and accounting,” she replied. “When you hired us, you hired me, as well. Is there an issue here?”

Andras didn’t respond, but power radiated around him at the challenge.

Hunter stepped forward. Pretty or not, the woman wouldn’t disrespect his Alpha.

“Stop,” Andras commanded.

“But she—”

It’s a power play. The Vampires don’t allow their humans to do their talking. They want us to hurt her.”

“What? Why?”

“Because they are sadistic fucks,” Kristoff said.

Blurb:

The big break Trudy Hollander’s small accounting firm needs has finally arrived, but unfortunately it comes with murder, mayhem and Kristof Farkas, a man she just can’t seem to resist. Even worse, Kristof is the CFO of Dark Wolf Enterprises—the one person who can pull the plug on the job that will take her company to the next level.

Then there are the assassins who can jump from three stories up and still be able to run away…

Kristof has no intention of giving in to his inner wolf and claiming Trudy. She’s human. Too fragile to withstand being a shifter’s mate. But the need to protect her is stronger than his resolve, and his desire is more powerful yet. He’ll fight with everything he has to keep her safe, both from those who would hurt her, and from himself.

When Meisha comes home and finds a strange man in her kitchen, she does what any sensible person would do. She beats the crap out of him first, then asks questions after.

Lajos Farkas isn’t expecting to meet a spitfire, martial artist when he’s on a mission to figure out who’s stealing from Dark Wolf Enterprises, and he certainly doesn’t expect her to insist on butting in on his investigation.

But getting rid of Meisha is seemingly impossible, and when his wolf decides she’s his life-mate, suddenly he realizes he’ll do anything to keep her close and grow old with her.

If they can just stay alive long enough to make that possible.

Excerpt #1:

Since the man lying on her kitchen floor had been so brazen about his break-in, it meant only one thing. All her threats to the people in her apartment complex were starting to fall on deaf ears. She needed to take this punk out into the courtyard and give the neighbors a reminder as to why they should leave her and her stuff alone.
She squinted at her captive. He was big, too big for her to drag out the door, down the stairs and into the courtyard.
Roll him?
Piper went back up to his face and swung a leg that looked as if it couldn’t support her fat body over the intruder’s neck, straddling him, trying to hump him to death. “Make sure you keep that up. When I get him out in public you can embarrass him all you want.”
Her burglar frowned and groaned. “Pft. Get off me, dog.” He tried to move his arms. Meisha smiled. She had tied them behind his back. His eyes flew open in panic.
Meisha pushed Piper aside just in case she needed to knock him out again. As soon as Piper was out of his way, the intruder landed his eyes on her.
She was right. His eyes were pretty. Light brown with a hint of gold speckles.
He squinted, his glare focused on her. “Untie me,” he ground out.
Meisha glared at him. “No.”
The color of his eyes flashed from brown to green.
She leaned closer to get a better look. “Holy shit, how did you change the color of your eyes? Is that some kind of trick?”
“I don’t want to hurt you,” he warned, ignoring her question.
Meisha raised an eyebrow and chuckled. “Really? You? Hurt me?” There was no way he was getting out of the bindings. When she’d first moved to the US from Japan, her mother had told her that she wanted her only daughter to experience a normal American childhood like she had. That meant enrolling Meisha into the Girl Scouts. Thanks to that organization, she’d learned to tie a wicked knot.
The intruder grunted. His face turned red as he tugged at his bindings.
Meisha nodded at his arms. “If you haven’t noticed, you’re all tied up. I could do whatever my little heart desires to you.”
The side of his mouth quirked up. “And tell me, love. What does your heart desire?” His voice had dropped an octave.
She caught her breath. The dimple in his cheek was…cute. Her heart fluttered. She scooted away from him. That was what she needed—distance.

Excerpt #2
Meisha squinted, trying to see what he saw. It was dark and the street lights weren’t much help. On this block all of them except for two were broken. She scanned each house, first trying to figure out which one was pale blue. Then she looked for one that had a second floor. “I don’t see it,” she finally said, giving up when she couldn’t make anything out.
“It’s on the next block. I wouldn’t expect you to.”
“The next block,” she exclaimed, not bothering to whisper any longer. “How the hell can we stake out a house that we can’t see and that’s not even on this block?”
He turned, flashing his pearly whites at her. “I can see it just fine.”
Oh god, I love those dimples.
She pulled her gaze away from him. No involvement, Meisha.
“Okay, you can see it with your super non-human eyes, but now what? You just sit here and watch it? Shouldn’t we try to get closer? Don’t we need to find out how many Shifters there are and maybe ambush them?”
“There are six Shifters in the house and another who just entered that liquor store on the corner.”
She turned back toward the direction of the house. Okay, the liquor store she could see, but she definitely couldn’t make out anyone going into or leaving out of it.
“Wait, how are you so sure about the numbers?”
He tapped his nose again.
“Yeah, right. The best in the business,” she mocked.
“Exactamundo.”
“So we’ve come all this way to find out how many of them there are? I thought you needed to find out who hired them to kill Mark and Trudy? For that, wouldn’t we need to capture one and torture him into telling us what we want to know?”
He glanced at her. His eyes seemed to grow brighter in the dark night. And they were on her, making her feel… She really didn’t know how they were made her feel. There were too many emotions raging in her at once. She fidgeted uncomfortably on her seat.
“Sweetheart, you jumped straight to torture. I don’t know if I should be turned on or a little scared.”
She tried her best to appear nonchalant, as if she hadn’t just had a spark course through her body when he looked at her like she was the only woman on the face of the Earth, making her feel like she was. Another man would’ve cringed away from her at the mention of torture, but Lajos wasn’t an ordinary man.

Excerpt #3
His wolf projected pictures, first of Meisha’s back, meaning she was mad at them. Yes, Lajos already knew that. Then of Lajos on the ground incapacitated. Yeah. If Meisha tried to leave him they wouldn’t be able to function without her.
“There are two things we have to clear up. One, you can’t go with me and my team tonight. It’s too dangerous. We’ll catch the Shifters and deal with them appropriately.”
“I really don’t want to hear this shit anymore. I’m going with you this time.” She dangled her keys in the air. “Like I said, this is a free country.”
He held up his hands. “Just hear me out. There’s a perfectly good reason why I want to keep you here where it’s safe.”
She narrowed her eyes at him. “If you tell me one more time I’m too weak, I swear to Oprah that I’ll fuck you up, right here and now.”
He tried his best to hold back his chuckle. Keeping all of his teeth depended on it. He’d read all the ways she’d wanted to hurt him before he fell asleep, and he had to give it to her, her list was quite comprehensive. “Meisha, sweetheart, you’re my mate. If anything happened to you I wouldn’t survive. We couldn’t—my wolf and I would die without you.”
He watched her reaction, waiting to find out how she would take the news. Curious? Happy?
She frowned. Not the reaction he was looking for, but hey, this was all still new to her. “Just because your wolf likes me, you’ll die if I die?”
“He liked you the first time we first met. Imprinting is something deeper. It means we’ll be together for the rest of our lives.”
She nodded. “Um hm. Just like you told me before, we’re stuck with each other now.”
He grimaced at her choice of words. “I really wouldn’t say that. We’ve found each other. We’re mated—for life.”
“Did I miss something?”
“Huh?”
Although on the outside she appeared calm, he could almost feel the energy from her anger crackling through the air. “You and your wolf mated with me and now you expect me to be stuck with you for life.”
“Look, maybe I’m not explaining this right. I’ve never had to explain this to a human. A wolf would automatically know what this meant. Maybe I should call Andras and have him explain it to you.”
“And I would want to hear this from Andras because…?”
“Because he’s your Alpha.” He searched his brain for another comparison. “Um, just think of him as your boss.”
When both of her eyebrows rose, he was definitely sure he’d gone about this the wrong way.
“So you’re my mate. You’re in charge of protecting me because I’m a weak and fragile human. And, since I’m too dumb to understand the logistics of what this means for me, Andras, my new boss, will explain it to me.”
He wanted to shake his head, but although she was saying it in a less than desirable tone, she still had the gist of it.
“And the decision to mate with me and bond our forces forever was made without my knowledge and input,” she added.
“I told you there’s no planning for it. No wolf plans for this. It just happens.”
“So for humor’s sake, tell me something. If you had the choice, who would’ve you picked?”
“Honestly?”
She nodded. “Honestly.”
“I would’ve picked another wolf. Someone who wouldn’t expose the Pack to vulnerability. Someone who would live as long as I would. Someone who I wouldn’t spend the rest of her life worrying about.”
She turned away from him, but before she did he saw the pain in her eyes. “I’ll find someone who respects me. Someone who loves me. Someone who sees me as an equal and someone who wouldn’t mind spending the rest of his life worrying about my wellbeing.”
He rested his hand on her shoulder, needing to feel her skin under his fingertips. He wanted to make this right, but not at the cost of possibly losing her. “I’m not upset that we’ve joined. You…you’re…”
How could he find the words to tell her that she was more woman and wolf than any female he’d ever met? That her vulnerabilities were perfect, that her weaknesses were also her strongest points and that he’d go to the ends of the earth for her?
She pulled away from him. “No need to explain yourself, we were being honest. But you and your wolf are forgetting one thing, Lajos. I’m not a Shifter. I don’t have to abide by your rules.”
“Meisha—”
She turned around and faced him. Her eyes were red and watery. “I reject your claim on me.”

Blurb:
The big break Trudy Hollander’s small
accounting firm needs has finally arrived, but unfortunately it comes with
murder, mayhem and Kristof Farkas, a man she just can’t seem to resist. Even
worse, Kristof is the CFO of Dark Wolf Enterprises—the one person who can pull
the plug on the job that will take her company to the next level.
Then there are the assassins who can
jump from three stories up and still be able to run away…
Kristof has no intention of giving in
to his inner wolf and claiming Trudy. She’s human. Too fragile to withstand
being a shifter’s mate. But the need to protect her is stronger than his
resolve, and his desire is more powerful yet. He’ll fight with everything he
has to keep her safe, both from those who would hurt her, and from himself.
Excerpt:
     She was going to die. There was a man-wolf killer
outside and a pilot-kidnapper in here.
     Another glance outside and Kristof stood, as a man,
watching her. A naked man. A wonderfully naked man.
     She shook her head.
     Wolf-beast.
That’s what he is.
     “Trudy. Open the hatch. I’m coming back up,” he yelled
out to her.
     Was she supposed to let him back in? He hadn’t said
anything about that.
     She chewed on her lower lip, waiting for an answer she
couldn’t think of. If she opened the door, would he attack her? Was he a rabid
beast who couldn’t control himself?
     She shook her head. “No. You said not to open the
hatch.”
     “I meant don’t open the hatch for them.”
     “Since I know your secret, are you going to kill me
now?”
     “Don’t be silly. It’s cold out here. Open the hatch.”
     Should I let him back in?
     “Are the pilots still alive?” he asked.
     Her gaze shot back to the cockpit. “Yes. But not for
long,” she yelled, loud enough for the pilots to hear.
     “I’m naked and it’s about thirty degrees out here. Can
you please let me in?”
     “Wh-what about your super-human heating abilities?
Aren’t you supposed to be so hot that’d you’d melt snow?”
     He cocked his head to the side. “This is not some young adult story about Wolf-Shifters and sparkly Vampires. I’m freezing
my ass off.”
     “If he kills me, I’m going to be so pissed,” she
mumbled to herself.
      With the gun trained on the cockpit, she slowly walked
to the hatch. There, she unlocked it and opened the door for him.
     Kristof jumped and grasped the edge of the plane. With
a grunt, he hauled himself up and through the opening. His body was streaked
with blood. He looked…deadly.
     She startled and fell back. She aimed the gun at him.
“Don’t hurt me.”
     “Trudy, darling.”
     She stared at him. “Y-yes.”
     “If you’re going to shoot me, I’d rather you aim for
my head and get it over with quickly.”
     Her gaze followed the path of her aim.
     Aw shit.
     “My other head,” he said softly.
     Trudy dropped her jaw and she stared at him—all of him. He
was big, thick and swinging gloriously in front of her.

Interview with A.M. Griffin

Thank you to A.M. Griffin, author of the soon to be released The Guicai Talisman, for answering a few questions about herself and her writing. 🙂

Guicai Talisman.Cover

What books have influenced your life most? I would say the books that have influenced me the most are the books where after I finished reading it, I felt as though I could write a story too. Not every book had that type of impact on me. I love regency, but after I read them I don’t feel like I can do that too (lol). But the paranormal and sci-fi books give me that warm and tingling feeling of, “the story doesn’t have to end here” or “what about different worlds?”.

If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor? I can’t really say. I have a lot of awesome writer friends and friends that I can reach out for help anytime I want. But as for the first writer who reached out to me and gave me some much needed advice and help me out, that would be the lovely Cynthia Sax. She had the same publisher as me and out of nowhere she emailed me. It felt like someone had thrown me a lifeline in the middle of a storm and I took it and held on tight. Authors are a great group of people and I’m lucky enough to have found friends in them.

If you could be any character from any book, who would you be? Hands down I would be Babylonia Jones from my newest release The Guicai Talisman from my new series The Undercity Chronicles of Babylonia Jones, P.I. She’s kick-ass, smart, funny, pretty and has a totally wicked life. She’s half-paranormal and half-human and because of that she doesn’t fit in either world; human or paranormal, but she’s desperately trying to find her way. I like that she’s honest and most of all true to herself. Oh, and she also has some cool friends; Melia is a Vampire and Demarcus is a Demi-God. I could totally hang out with them.

When did you first consider yourself a writer? When my first book was published I knew that there was no turning back. I was official.

What inspired you to write your first book? I kept having the same scene repeat in my head, this woman fighting aliens during an alien invasion. I would night dream and day dream about her. I knew the only way to get it to stop was to get her story out. So while I was in my night class I began writing Dangerously Mine. It felt good to get Eva’s story down and completed. That was the first story that I’d ever finished and it felt damn good.

Do you have a specific writing style? I’m a hybrid; pantser and plotter. I’ll write off the cuff, putting down whatever comes to mind, but it never fails, toward the middle of my story I have to plot the rest of the book. It’s usually toward the middle of the story where I have to rein my characters in and get back on plot.

Do you have a regular writing routine? NOPE.

What’s the BEST writing advice you ever received? Cynthia Sax gave me a ton of writing advice that I still remember and find useful today, but the best is to not engage reviewers who have left a bad review of a book. Just thank them and move on. It can be very gut wrenching to get a bad review, but I have to understand that it’s one person’s perspective and that not every book is meant for every reader. I thank the reviewer regardless if it was a good or bad review because they have taken the time to read my story.

The Guicai Talisman by A.M. Griffin

Guicai Talisman.Cover

The Undercity Chronicles of Babylonia Jones, P.I.

The Guicai Talisman

Blurb

What does a woman have to do to prove she belongs in the Undercity? Sure, I’m unclassed and only half paranormal, but that doesn’t mean I can’t solve cases. Since the established PI’s won’t acknowledge my right to a territory, I’m taking jobs from whoever will hire me, doing what I do best…proving myself to be a bad-ass problem solver. Which is how I find myself breaking into Zaid’s house, looking for a talisman my witch client says the very powerful vampire stole.

 

Now, I can make flowers grow, hear the wind’s whispers and talk to animals, but I don’t have the gift of seeing the future. If I did, I’d have known not to take this case. Because no matter the outcome, nothing good can come from messing with the Guicai Talisman, or it’s far too gorgeous guardian.

Excerpt 

Zaid finally sauntered out of the club.

There he is.

He looked the same as he did on the previous nights I’d watched him; tall, about six-foot-two, nice sleek body covered in an expensive suit that I guessed was tailored to fit only him. He was lean, but by no means skinny. His shoulders were broad and the few times I’d seen him without a jacket I noticed he had well-defined muscles in his arms and pecs. The cinched belt around his narrow waist highlighted a flat stomach and showed off a nicely formed ass—yes, on a couple of occasions, while I was cataloguing his looks, I did let my eyes linger on his ass, which was a very nice one, round and firm. The kind of ass a girl could take a nice bite out of.

My mouth salivated at the thought of doing just that. Not a for real bite, but a nice little playful nip. I’m sure he’d appreciate that. To hear Melia tell it, Vampires were into some pretty kinky stuff.

I shook my head.

Get your mind out the gutter and back on the target Baby D.

I snapped back to attention and put my hormones in check. Raging hormones plagued me ever since I took this job, but it’s an expected hazard. Vampires had something in their makeup that made women and men want to fall at their feet. Dealing with Vampires isn’t like how it’s portrayed in the Hollywood movies, where terrorized people run kicking and screaming away from them. No. In reality people go to them willingly.

Case in point, there were two creamy-skinned blondes, one on each of Zaid’s arms. Arm in arm, they walked along the red carpet that led to valet parking. To me the women looked like the cookie cutter versions of the women he’d taken home last night and the night before that; they were all pale, tall, blonde, gorgeous and wore tight clothes. These two had on dresses so short I could see the bottom of their butts hanging out as they walked.

“Have some pride ladies,” I muttered to myself. “Didn’t your momma ever tell you that your dress should be longer than your vagina?”

Zaid stopped at the curb and looked from left to right. I didn’t bother ducking past the rim of the cement rooftop barrier. Even with his great eyesight he couldn’t see me nestled on the rooftop more than a block from where he was, scoping him out with my high-powered binoculars. And, even with his sensitive hearing, he definitely couldn’t hear me talking to myself. There were too many other distractions between us for him to even get a lock on my location. Plus, he didn’t know he was being watched anyway—why would he be looking for me?

He was probably trying to figure out if any Witches were in the area. Vampires could sniff out Witches and, while they weren’t scared of them, usually tried to avoid them. And if he did have Tina’s talisman I’m sure he wanted to steer clear of her.

Zaid lifted his chin and turned his head in my direction. He then closed his eyes, took a deep breath, and shuddered on an exhale.

What the hell is that all about?

He opened his eyes and if I didn’t know any better I’d think he was looking right at me.

Impossible.

Dangerously His (Loving Dangerously #4) by A.M. Griffin Review

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

 

22062424

SYNOPSIS:

Justin “JB” Blake has never met a woman he couldn’t bed—or one he wants to keep. That changes the second he lays eyes on Princess Saia Xochis. The beautiful alien makes his body burn and his heart ache. She will be his. All JB has to do is risk life and limb at the hands of her abusive father, her protective brother, and her warmongering intended mate.

The possibilities of death and dismemberment have never stopped him before.

Inside Scoop: This book has a small taste of female/female fun—as well as scenes of abuse that are decidedly not fun.

My Review:

A.M. is one of my favorite authors. I haven’t read the previous books in the series and plan to change that soon. I couldn’t put it down. The characters and the world she has created is great. I love the twists and turns she takes with this one. The story takes place in space and not on earth. The dynamics are a little different between the aliens and humans. I recommend it be added to your TBR list. You won’t be disappointed. I look forward to reading more of A.M.’s books.

The Ashes That Remain (Cimmerian Moon #2) by A.M. Griffin Review

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

 

21844995

SYNOPSIS:

We’re at war against the aliens that have invaded Earth, fighting the only way we can—by surviving. I have more than most people do, but although I know it’s stupid to hold on, I can’t let go of what might have been—can’t help dreaming of something more. No matter how I tell myself it would be easier to do what everyone else wants me to, there’s a part of me that can’t give in. Making the best of the situation is one thing. Settling, even to make other people happy, is something else.

Then we hear the alien mother ships have disappeared. Of course we have to go and investigate. What we find lands us in a huge mess that we somehow have to clean up and, as our little enclave is rocked to the core with even more changes, I’m learning a hard lesson.

The more things change—for the better or the worse—there’s no fighting human nature, and building on the ashes that remain will take everything we have. And maybe more.

My Review:

I couldn’t put it down. Just like the first book it pulls you in from the first page. With this one we see how the humans are living now that the aliens are controlling everything. The reader is given insight to how the characters adapt to the situation that they are in. It has great twists and turns. I highly recommend this series to those readers who love Science Fiction and Fantasy books. I suggest if you haven’t added the series to your TBR list that you do. You won’t be disappointed. I look forward to reading more of A.M.’s books.

Against the Darkness (Cimmerian Moon #1) by A.M. Griffin Review

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

21844986

 

SYNOPSIS:

This one time, at band camp…aliens invaded earth. Sounds like a bad riff on an old joke, doesn’t it? Unfortunately for me and my friends, it’s all too true. I thought a mess like this only happened in the movies but, as I watch the alien ships hovering over the major cities, I suddenly realize I’m a thousand miles away from my Mom. From home. From safety.

Darkness may have fallen over the world, but I won’t let it claim me. I’ll do anything I have to get back to Michigan. Yet nothing could prepare me for what we find on our trek north from Tallahassee. There’s hardly anything the aliens haven’t bombed. Survival, at any cost, is the name of the game for the few people who haven’t been killed or captured. As if trying to stay free and alive isn’t enough, I think I just met the love of my life. And he’s just the kind of bad boy who’ll tear down the walls I’ve built around my heart—then break it.

My Review:

A.M. is a great writer. I love her style of writing. I couldn’t put it down. I love the twist she brings to the battle between humans and aliens. It’s a real page turner. The characters she has created are great. I love all the twists and turns in the book. The ending leaves you wanting more of the story.  It’s a book that Science Fiction  and Fantasy readers will love to read. I look forward to reading more of her books.
