He knew her round eyes and the deep shade of brown along with the band of black that encircled her irises. He knew the slope of her breasts, the indent of her waist, and the flare of her hips. He knew the way she preferred to wear muted colors to help her blend in with a crowd. It had taken one look to put all that to memory, but he found his eyes going to her again and again, as if he couldn’t get enough.

Nikolai is a dragon shapeshifter who knows well the meaning of loss. Orphaned and raised to be a Dragon King, he never accepts defeat. Now, Nikolai prefers his solitude. . .until a beautiful, irresistible woman calls upon him for help—and Nikolai’s whole world goes up in flames.

Ever since MI5 agent Esther woke to discover her mind taken over with magic, she feels like a stranger to herself. She looks to a notorious dragon, one who has the power to help her find her memory. But as she and Nikolai come closer to discovering what really happened to her, a dangerous passion ignites between them. Can this lone Dragon King help the woman he’s grown to love to uncover the truth about her past—or will a deep and fiery danger tear them both apart in Heat, the next Dark Kings novel by New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant.

A well-secluded safe space for troubled shifters, Alpha is Renny’s last hope. But the first person she meets there is a gorgeous alpha male with fiery eyes, fierce tattoos, and one ferocious appetite―for her…

Mick Fischer thought he left his past behind when he moved to Alpha. But fate has a way of biting him in the tail when a female wolf shows up on his property. Wounded, desperate―and disarmingly hot―Renny brings out the snarling, protective alpha beast in Mick like no other woman he’s known. Can these two haunted, hunted wolves manage to mate for life…even as the deadliest past demons howl at their heels?

Book Excerpt: OTHER THAN by Mia Jo Celeste

other-than-coverOTHER THAN by Mia Jo Celeste / Gaslamp fantasy, paranormal romance / Released Jan 27, ,2017 by The Wild Rose Press

Her mad dash brought Evie skidding into a wondrous sight. The whole kitchen was awash in a yellow blaze. The bread ovens’ bricks glowed a vivid orange. Sparks like fireflies rode eddies of the heated air that felt soothing under her wet quilt. The water gave her the notion of safety within the beautiful and deadly inferno.

Boots paced above her. A door swung shut.

Hope fluttered in her belly. Mayhap she might just do it—race up the steps, rescue Victor and be out of the kitchen before the flames caught her. She dashed through and mounted the stairs.

Adrenaline fueling her speed, she attempted to outrace the flickering destruction climbing the stairs along her heelsnd succeeded. Amazingly succeeded. Apparently, the fire was slowing, as though sated and content to toy with the kitchen.

Perhaps Sesha and Jessup had convinced their Almighty to aid her even after she’d reneged on her promise. She owed them—she’d save the cure in their memory. She sped into the ruined conservatory and got to the table, but the rack was empty. No vials. And the top of Jessup’s desk was clear. His journals and notes were gone.

On the floor, splattered blood led to and from the threshold. She followed it to the phoenix room and sensed Victor beyond the door.

He was alive. She’d found him.

Interview: Mia Jo Celeste

fcportra-me-in-the-stairs-wMia Jo Celeste comes from a family of writers and English teachers, so it was no surprise when she chose to pursue both careers. She grew up watching horror movies and reading romances. To her, the two genres go together like salty and sweet in kettle corn.

What do you do when you are not writing?

I’m an English teacher, so you might say working with words is a big part of my life.

Do you have a reoccurring theme to your books?

Yes, and it’s not entirely intentional. I’m really a strong believer in second changes and in starting over, so many times my characters are on that journey. Most often, they succeed. We all have a broken place in our past and I write the story of its mending. That said, I have a big imagination and usually along the characters’ journey, a lot of fantastic, not quite real, stuff happens, which is why most of my work is also paranormal.

What do you hope readers take away from your work?

That people can change and grow. They can start again.

Have you ever written a scene that ‘creeped’ you out?

Yes, I’m one of those authors who believes that there must be emotion in the author if a scene’s going to generate emotion in the reader. Other Than, my new release is a paranormal tale, which has an element of horror to it. A scene that raised heebie-jeebies for me was when the heroine gets locked out of her room. It’s her first night on the island. She knows no one and she’s only seen a couple of rooms in the main house, so she gets lost. When she tries to find help, she ends up joining a line of zombie-workers. Then she discovers, they’re not only dead, but mindless and threatening. She’s surrounded, about to be attacked and she realizes as that these creatures have the same disease she does—they could be her future.

Do you read the same genre you write?

Yes, but pretty much, I read in every other genre, too. I’m addicted to stories, and I’m always looking for my next novel-fix, which leads to the next question—

What social media do you participate in?

I have a blog www.miaceleste.com —I’m on Twitter and Facebook, but I’d love for readers to look for me on Goodreads https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/62257812-mia-jo-celeste so we could share must-reads.

Review: THE CURSE OF TENTH GRAVE by Darynda Jones

511btrrlgplTHE CURSE OF TENTH GRAVE A Charley Davidson Book #10 by Darynda Jones

Paranormal/Fantasy Released June 28, 2016 by St. Martin’s Press

As you may recall in book #9, learning her true name gave Charlie a healthy dose of amnesia and she took a little side trip to another life for a few months with her entourage in tow to keep an eye on her.

Now Charlie is back and she carries two things: the knowledge that the love of her life is one of three brothers sent to earth to kill her daughter and secondly, the god glass pendant to trap them.

As if that isn’t enough to keep her busy she also has a runaway girl fearing for her life and the task of clearing an innocent man accused of killing his girlfriend. And who on earth is Garrett following?

Things are escalating in the series, powers building, sides are being chosen and then there’s the proverbial line in the sand. But even when it appears that Charlie and Reyes are going in different directions their love is always unwavering.

Ms. Jones delivers another tongue-in-cheek, edge-of-seat adventure flawlessly. I love this series.

51lco4tdzil-_sx326_bo1204203200_Book #11 Eleventh Grave in Moonlight comes out January 24, 2017. While I’m not thrilled with the jump in price ($12.99 as opposed to $7.99 for book #10) I am sure I will eventually add that to my collection.
