 Add to TBR



Valerie Moore is an Elemental, a person who commands one of the classical elements of wind, water, fire, or earth. She’s special, though. She controls two—fire and water—though sometimes it seems like they control her.



After the accidental exposure of Elementals to humanity, Valerie finds herself—and all of her kind—struggling to attain equality. Three different groups fight to secure leadership, and with all of their hidden agendas, she doesn’t know which side to choose. The balance between peaceful cohabitation and all-out war is precarious, at best.



When a chance meeting brings Val and earth Elemental Cade Landston back together, everything changes. She realizes what she knew in the beginning—that he’s the one she wants. Her desire to win him over draws her closer to him, and his vengeful mission to hunt down her murderous grandfather brings them both closer to trouble.



From mysterious doppelgangers to reckless rescue missions, scapegoat bombings, and evolving Elemental powers, Valerie strains to keep up.



All she knows is she must stop her grandfather at all costs. To do so, she has to figure out the truth. But how can she, when almost everyone she knows has been telling lies?




“I can control average emotional outbursts. I can counter, deflect, and dissolve enemy Elemental attacks. I am physically stronger and more fit, as well, and can survive on my own in the wild if need be. I’m ready to go home.”



But still she shook her head. “You understand how to handle like-adversaries. But what about the two Elements you don’t control?” She uncrossed her arms and walked closer to me, picking up a charred branch from the ground.



The skill with which she spun the stick, had my head reeling. She was like a damn samurai. Her fingers knew exactly where to touch. Her body knew exactly where to move. When she slammed the burnt stick down into the ground, the earth formed a wave that knocked me off my feet. I managed to tuck and roll and land gracefully, but I couldn’t deny that I had zero control over her Element. I had no idea how to block or counterattack.



She narrowed her eyes. “If you can beat me, we can go home.”



I mirrored her expression with an added shot of aggression. I might not have known exactly what I was doing, but I sure as hell had to try.



“Game. On.”

When death, a baby, and a proposal hit them all in the same week, fall apart becomes an understatement.

These best friends find themselves leaning on each other more than they ever have.

Bed Buddies!


I believe growing up in a really small town gives a person a little advantage when it comes to the imagination. You need one or you go mad.
Needless to say, mine saved me. After it got me into trouble first, that is. That's the problem with a vivid imagination, all the lies you tell.

I am happily married with two daughters.
I have two giant dogs, two savage cats, and a penchant for a glass of red.
Also, I drag my bread through the sauce. I can't help myself, bread is life.
According to my age, I am meant to be a responsible adult, but it isn't going well at all. I would still head off to Hogwarts tomorrow and I suspect there isn't a single wardrobe I haven't crept into, hoping to find the door to Narnia. And don't even get me started on the King's Road, I get lost.

Fortunately, I am an international bestseller so I have wormed my way into a quirky or eccentric category.

Thank God for that.

I am represented by Natalie Lakosil from the Bradford Literary Agency and am published traditionally with Montlake Romance.

Excerpt from Roommates:
“Wanna go for dinner?” I test the water after a minute.
She sighs and gives me a look, stopping us both in the middle of the street during the busiest time of day. I drag her to the side of the building we are next to and hold her tight. “No. I want you to come to our place for dinner. I’m tired and I want to put on something grungy and maybe force you to watch something girlie.”
“Okay.” I wrinkle my nose. “Rough week?”
“No. Just tired because it’s new, and I’m still lost and I miss Hartford and all the people and how fun it was. But I’m catching on and a girl named Linna was nice to me today. She sat with me at lunch and we talked. She’s from Providence too. She said you guys were in seventh grade together, but you probably won’t remember her. Dark hair and blue eyes and really pretty.”
My insides clench. “Linna Mackenzie?”
“Yeah!” Her eyes are wide and then they dull. “Really?” She reads my face like a book. “You are why I can’t have nice things.”
I bend down and kiss her cheek. “You are my nice thing.” How the fuck is it possible she works with a girl I fucked when I was fifteen? Fuck! “You are everything.”
She makes duck lips and looks off to the right. Her sour mood is going strong tonight and I suspect I am the cause of it all.
“Do you want to go back to Hartford?” I run my hands along her neck and cheek. She’s cold.
Her bright eyes widen as she lifts her face to mine and shrugs. “I don't know. I need to give this more of a chance, I think.”
I bend and kiss her softly. “Whatever you want to do, I’m with you on it. I already told you that.”
She melts into me and lets me hold her.
“And I’m sorry about Linna. I was fifteen.”
She laughs against my lips. “You should trade out West.”
I shake my head. “That won’t help.”
She pulls back and rolls her eyes. “Gross.”

Malefica Book Blitz with Katie H. Weill


Title: Malefica
Author: Katie H. Weill
Genre: NA Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Satin & Stone
Cover Designer: Dark City Designs
Hosted by: Lady Amber's PR



Blurb:
Claudia Matthews turns 18 tomorrow – as long as she can make it through the first day of classes at Oakley High School. It’s more than her inherent strangeness that keeps her from fitting in. Her ill-tempered service dog, Luca, isn’t winning her friends and her class schedule is even less welcoming, dropping her into the government- mandated, “The History of Witches”.

They are real, she's been told. They are powerful, and evil – yet Claudia wants to know if that's actually a universal truth. Are all witches really that bad?

When a mysterious gift appears, dark secrets are cast into the light, and the world as she knows it may change forever. Now armed with questions, Claudia will need to figure out if it's truly worth finding the truth when textbooks don’t hold all the answers. Drawn into a world of hidden covens and regulated magic, she may learn more than she bargained for. Now Claudia has to fight the lure of power and a temptation much more passionate…or lose herself to both. The truth could set her free… or damn her forever.


Katie H. Weill is the descendant of a witch - descendant of Ann Pudeator, a wealthy woman in her seventies who did nothing but care for others, and one of the last women accused and executed in Salem, Massachusetts. Katie was inspired by the hard fought findings of her Aunt to create a story that started with a sprinkle of history and unraveled a tale from there. With her husband and her rescued dog at her side she is enthralled by the idea of creating new stories and worlds and looks forward to sharing them with the world. Ann Pudeator was exonerated in 1957 by the Massachusetts General Court of all charges.

She could turn the demon over, and she could find out about her father…
                “Can I help you?” A skinny cop in uniform sat, bleary-eyed, and clutching a giant cup of coffee between his two hands as he shivered against the cold which drifted in through the briefly open door.
                “I need to speak to,” she paused; who did she ask for?
                Claudia reached up once again to brush her fingers over her eyes as if that would help clear the haze from her mind, and felt her brows furrow down as the name of the department her father worked for came to her.
                “Someone in the Department of Occult Enforcement.” She lowered her hands as the officer slowly lowered his cup to the desk, his eyes widening.
                “T-this is just a local P.D. miss,” he extended his hand, pressing a button firmly on the phone on the desk, picking up the receiver while never looking away from her. “But I’ll get you my superior,” he was already starting to mumble, and when he spoke into the phone, it was a blur of words her tired brain didn’t feel like deciphering.
                “Thank you,” Claudia had considered turning to sit down in one of the chairs, but the slap of shoes on the linoleum brought her attention to a door off to the right that swung open, and she watched a large man in a suit and undone tie step forward. Instant recognition crossed his face, and his hand snapped towards his side arm.
                ‘Run,’ her mind whispered, but she couldn’t make herself head for the door.
                Her feet felt rooted to the spot as if the ivy from outside had curled up around her ankles and held her in place; the perfect target for a full clip of bullets. “I’m Claudia Matthews,” tears clogged her throat suddenly as she watched him, voice thick, tired and desperate. “And I really need your help.” She managed and then her knees buckled in their exhaustion, sending her tumbling to the floor.

Exclusive Excerpt:

“I’m going to kiss you now,” Peter said, in a tone that told me in no uncertain terms he was a man used to declaring what he wanted and going for it.

“I…. don’t normally kiss on the first date,” suddenly feeling my stomach burst into a quivering flower of nerves. First kisses could go so very wrong. Teeth bashing, misplaced lips, awkward tongue collisions. And, I really, really didn’t want this first kiss to be awkward. I wanted it to be… more. Then, there was the other reason I wasn’t so sure I wanted to kiss him right then, namely because I didn’t trust myself right at this moment to keep it strictly to a kiss. It had been so long since I’d been intimate, at the first little rev of my engine, I might throw off my clothes and take him right there, in full view of God and the neighbors.

“Can you make an exception… for me?” Peter asked, all the while moving closer, as he reached up and stroked my cheek, swiping a bit of hair from my forehead. He was asking me now and I realized no part of me wanted to deny him. All good reason left my brain then. I couldn’t think of a single reason why kissing would be a bad idea.

“Maybe,” I murmured. Then he swept in, gently pressing his lips against mine. It began softly, respectfully, a press of the lips together, before it turned into something… more. My lips parted and suddenly I tasted him, perfect warmth and sweetness, and I felt heat moving through me. He knew exactly what he was doing, an expert kisser. As he pulled me to him, the dry brush of my body lit up like a raging wild fire as the need for this, for him, consumed me. Suddenly, I wanted him, a yawning, hungry want. Before I knew what I was doing, I’d slipped over to his seat, between him and the steering wheel. I hadn’t straddled a man in the front seat since… high school, but somehow, it just felt right.

The kiss continued into a full-blown make-out session. His hands were in my hair, running down my back, cupping my butt as he groaned in my mouth. The sound sent me into overdrive and I could feel how badly he wanted me as I pressed my weight into his lap. I didn’t care that we were parked in the street, or that Mom might be spying on us at that very moment from the windows in my living room. For this brief moment, beneath the warm glow of the dashboard lights, we were on our own planet, connecting in a way that I hadn’t connected with a man in a long, long time.

Excerpt:


It does no good to stake a claim on someone’s heart. Unless they give it to you, it isn’t yours to take. All you can do is share your heart and hope she wants it. All you can do is offer it and hope she takes it. All you can do is love her and hope to God she finds a way to love you back.

“I’m sorry,” he whispered.

“For what?” she asked.

“For tryin’ to force you to love me.”

“Oh, Woodman,” she said, her voice thick with emotion. “I do love you.”

“I know you do. Like a best friend. Like a brother.”

She shrugged helplessly. “And at times . . .”

He waited for her to continue.

“There have been times,” she said softly, “when I thought I felt somethin’ more.”

With his good foot, he pushed off and the swing rocked gently as he processed her words; those times—those precious moments—when she’d felt possible for him, he’d felt possible for her too. It gave him hope. It restored his patience.

“I love you,” he said gently, staring straight ahead at an old oak tree that was blocking the setting sun. It created a sunburst of orange-gold that made the tree look like it was on fire. “I’ve been in love with you for as long as I can remember.”

“Woodman,” she sobbed.

He didn’t look at her. He stared at the tree as the orange-gold sun set the grass on fire and watched as the old oak was slowly bathed in a calming lavender.

“If you told me ‘no,’ Gin, if you told me ‘never,’ I’d leave you be. You know that, don’t you? It would damn near kill me, but I’d . . . I promise you, I’d walk away. But until you say those words, Ginger, I will keep hopin’ and keep waitin’ for you.”

She took a deep, sobbing breath beside him, and he knew if he looked at her, he’d see tears spilling over the rims of her eyes, but he didn’t look. He watched the grass turn lavender, then purple. He focused on the dying light.

“Gin,” he whispered, hating the question but needing the answer, “are you in love with Cain?”

Peripherally, he saw her shake her head back and forth, letting her neck fall forward until her chin rested on her chest and her shoulders shook the swing with silent sobs. And then he knew for sure. It had happened. Somehow in the space of just a few days she’d fallen for Cain again.

“Gin,” he said gently, putting his finger under her chin and tilting her face up to look at him. Her blonde hair shone in the porch light over their heads as the rest of the world darkened into purple dusk little by little. “Cain is my cousin and I love him, but I just . . . I just don’t think he’s right for you.”

Why?” she demanded, her voice breaking on the simple, pleading word, as though she truly wanted an answer, as though she’d already posed the question to herself and come up with nothing.

Because he’s cock deep in Mary-Louise Walker right now while you’re weeping over him. The words sat perched on the tip of his tongue, but he couldn’t bring himself to say them—he couldn’t bear to hurt her like that, and frankly he didn’t want to villainize Cain like that, not even if meant winning Ginger.

“I see you with me, not him,” he said simply. “Darlin’, I’d be so good to you. Don’t you know that?”

She nodded, tears streaming down her lovely face, limp with sadness.

Reaching down, he took her hand gently, lifting it, bringing it to his chest and placing it directly over his heart.

“You can have this heart to break,” he said softly, devoutly, surrendering everything to her—his dignity, his control, his very soul—“if there’s even the smallest chance you might want it someday. Because here is what I know: even if you can’t ever give me yours, mine already belongs to you.”

About the Author:

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
