Title: Surrender to Fate (Fate’s Path #1)

Author: Jacelyn Rye

Genre: New Adult Romance 18+

Publication Date: September 17, 2013

Cover Designed By: Damonza

Event organized by: Literati Author Services, Inc.


Some say fate holds the cards. But what if love deals the hand? No love goes untested. Ever. Indeed, true love is left to prove itself. And that is exactly where fate steps in to play the game.

For William and Sarah, that game begins with growing up, in the unspoiled mountains of Colorado. In a time and space as clear as the Rocky Mountain skies above, these young souls together learn about life, what matters most, what endures, what doesn’t, and about love. Innocent young love moves ever so surely toward lives they both can picture, lives spent loving each other in a place they know so well and cherish.

Will and Sarah are ecstatically swept away in the swells of new love. And it is in their rarefied bliss that they make the fragile promise of first love, a promise that fate will soon rock and pound into doubt, guilt, and epiphany.

Unexpected and unprepared, these young lovers are suddenly torn apart, first by distance, and then by the far greater pressures of temptation that test the very fidelity of their heart-held promise. No longer able to console each other, hold each other, touch each other, they face the inevitable decision: move on to other loves, or cling to the faith that they will someday be together, again.

Will and Sarah stare down an unknown path, sensing destiny will not wait long before it comes to take them. Wracked with doubt, they wonder if their love was real. Caged by guilt, they both feel tempted by others intent on stealing their hearts.

Fate plays hardest when love is tested. And Will and Sarah are no exception, letting go of their happy past to embrace hope for an uncharted future. Love plays hardest when fate tests. And so it is, even through their trials of the heart, Will and Sarah never really stop loving each other. Theirs is a love so real and pure that each just wants the other to find happiness, even if it's with another.

But fate does not surrender so easily. Dealing blow upon blow, both Will and Sarah are each struck by jolting events that take them to the very edge of life, itself.

Sarah and Will hold tightly to their past, but steadfast promises begin to wane. Life continues, filled with romance, drama, and two souls yearning to understand the challenges brought with coming of age, and learning that fate is ultimately in control. What happens to love when life is on the line? Can they both relinquish control when love is on the line? Will fate even allow them to find out?

Book: Destructive Choices (The Destructive Series, #2)

Author: L.U Ann

Genre: New Adult (Contemporary Romance)

Release Date: November 2013

Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions


If the decisions you make don't define you, what price would you pay to change them? "Close your eyes. This is the darkness I see, I feel, I live because of my choices. I spent my life running. Running from my past. A past that changed my life, robbed me of my childhood, and bound me for a life of silence. Silence protected me from further hurt. When I couldn't control my life, I found reprieve in my silence. Dark, cold silence. I'm trapped, trying to find my way out, trying to make a stand, trying to finally live; but is it too late?" Lacey Edwards fought emotional turmoil most of her life. She made choices that unknowingly put her through more painstaking heartache. She found bits and pieces of happiness in all the wrong areas except for one. This one gave her hope for a fresh new life full of promises. Could she hold onto it, or would it slip through her fingertips? ***Warning*** Mature content. Not appropriate for audiences 17 years and under. This novel contains explicit language, sexual situations, abuse and social issues that some might find offensive. Meet the Author

Author L.U. Ann moved to Colorado from the Eastern Shore of Maryland with her husband and two children. Life in Colorado is so much different. In Maryland, you would find her in the garden tending to her vegetables and flowers, sea glass and shark tooth hunting once a week, and enjoying the kids swimming in the backyard. Her life took a drastic change when her family moved to their own “Little House on the Prairie" at an elevation of over 6,000 feet above sea level, and a semi-arid climate that makes it hard to grow anything. While barely anything can grow where she resides now, the wildlife makes up for it. Mountain Lions, and coyotes, and rattlesnakes, oh my! She tries to spend a little time each day writing, but domestic chores around the house usually take precedence. She would much rather hide them from her husband. She tends to her loving four-legged children who at times become much too demanding when she locks herself in the office. This often results in MORE domestic work, and she finds herself cleaning up after their deviant behavior. At night, you’ll find her begging the kids to go to bed so that she can catch up on the latest book before her sister can. Yes, she is an avid reader who escapes her chaotic but wonderful home to the feisty depths of romance land in search of her newest book boyfriend. Shh, don’t tell her husband. She is an artist by the grace of God. She worked as a set designer for six years, helping establish a local children's theatre where she was the scenery artist, set, and prop designer. Before that, you would find her covered in paint, so engrossed in painting a mural that time didn't exist. Graphic design is her guilty pleasure. Destructive Choices is the second book in The Destructive Series. Each book will hit its reader with lots of angst hoping for a happily ever after. Social Links

On The 12th Date of Christmas Cover Reveal

By Nikki Lynn Barrett

Contemporary holiday romance

Expected release date: November 8, 2013


After being mugged, Robin Sorenson is left shaken and her spirit in humanity broken. Worse, she’s not sure how to deal with the new anxieties or who to confide in since she’s always preached to pick oneself up and move on. Yeah, she’s been the go to girl when anyone’s had problems.

Christmas is coming, and her belief in magic and miracles has faded.

Then Jonas comes back.

Jonas Aimes made a mistake. A big one, when he walked away from Robin a year earlier. He’d loved her, always had and still does, but his desire to please his aging and strict parents took precedence. Back from the overseas internship they’d struggled to get him in, he plans on winning Robin back. What he didn’t count on was discovering the shell of the vivacious woman he’d loved.


Remembering her love of Christmas, Jonas pulls the holiday heartstrings. What? All is fair and love and war. Right?

Twelve days, Twelve Dates.

Robin is speechless when Jonas not only refuses to leave her alone, but dares her to accept his cheesy holiday themed challenge. Twelve dates to give him a chance to prove he loves her and is never leaving her again.

But in the season known for miracles can Robin find the magic needed to open her heart and faith once more...or will she forever wonder about the ghost of the Christmas past that could have been?

Goodreads Link:


The hostess walked up to the table and took their order. After she disappeared, Jonas reached for her hand again. “I'm not sure where to begin. I could apologize profusely, but does it do any good? I should never have let my family pressure me into the choice, but I can't change what I did. It took being so far away to realize just what I'd missed. You put up with a heck of a lot of immaturity from me last year and I can't imagine what you were feeling.”


“Please, let me get this out. The experience from the internship was great, but there were a few things that I saw that really gave me a whole new perspective. I missed you, and even though I knew I would, I missed you far more than I ever imagined.” His hands covered hers, sending a chill down her back.

“I can't just pick up where we left off and think things would be okay.” She said simply, not trying to be mean, but honest. “Cant and won't.”

He nodded. “I get that. I'm not expecting anything. I just had to tell you what I felt. I would be an idiot to think we could pick up and that everything would be fine, because I know that would never be the case.”

The sincerity in his voice was something she never expected. He watched her with those dark eyes that never turned away from her face, and she knew he meant business.

A smile lit up his face. “Give me twelve dates.”

Robin raised a brow. “Twelve dates? What are you talking about?” Now he was just acting strange. Kind of cute, but definitely strange.

“Twelve dates to show you just how much you mean to me. On the twelfth date, if you don't feel like we could at least try to work things out, I'll leave you alone. If I don't at least give this a shot, then I'm going to have a lot of regrets.”

“Twelve dates. You seriously sound like someone from one of those cheesy films they air this time of the year.”

He feigned hurt. “Cheesy? Ouch. That's a blow to the heart.”

“Twelve dates isn't a long time to decide.” God, he was being serious about this, wasn't he? Twelve dates? How in the world did he plan to try and show her anything with only twelve dates? The idea sounded cute, charming and sweet, it really did, but how did he plan to pull it off?

“Maybe for people who don't have our history, true. But we've known each other since high school. Come on, what could it hurt?”

A lot, actually. She kept the words to herself.

“Of course, we can talk and spend time together outside of the twelve dates, so it's not like we're limited.” Jonas continued. He circled her palm with his thumb. “And right now doesn't count as one of the dates.”

Robin laughed. Butterflies danced around in her belly. Oh, good grief. What happened to her promise just a few hours ago? To focus on her own life and not get wrapped up in a man?

Okay, just because you agree to this doesn't mean you're changing your mind. They're just dates. Sure, dates with a man I loved, but they're still just dates regardless.

“What about your family? What will they say?”


Though it's not a series, and On the 12th Date of Christmas is a standalone book, Robin makes her first appearance in The Secret Santa Wishing Well. Readers have been asking for her story and of course, more of Cheyenne, Jacob and the kids.

The Secret Santa Wishing Well Blurb:

The magic of Christmas has been lost to Jacob Winston. At the suggestion of his ill sister, Jacob takes a job as a Secret Santa at the mall, hoping to restore his Christmas spirit. Even that doesn’t seem to work, until a special little boy ambles up to make a very special wish... Cheyenne Jensen is struggling to raise her two kids without the help of her ex-husband who refuses to acknowledge his daughter’s existence and doesn’t provide for the son he does. This Christmas is shaping up to be as heartbreaking as the last, until her son Ben’s kind actions lead a stranger to them. Ah, but it’s Christmas time and the magic has begun. When Jacob and Cheyenne meet, neither can deny their immediate attraction to one another. As situations arise that require they spend more time together, their feelings grow stronger and stronger. With Christmas fast approaching, the pair learn what matters most in life. Now, if only they could ditch the ghost of Christmases past. Maybe this holiday will bring some wishes come true- for everyone after all.

Author Bio:

I’ve always been an avid reader. Majoring in English Literature was a no brainer. Becoming a teacher and instilling my love for reading into my students was also a no brainer. I’ve spent the last ten years teaching and I’ve loved (mostly) every minute of it. When I was home on maternity leave for my third son, I discovered a new genre that sparked my creativity. My passion for writing sprang from my love of reading and once I knew I had a story to tell, I couldn’t wait to get it out there. I only hope that my readers enjoy reading my story as much as I enjoyed writing it.

What if your destiny lay on the other side of death?

Faye Middleton never believed life would begin with death. She also didn’t believe one could find love after such a tragedy. With one, well aimed bullet to her chest – all of Faye’s well-constructed beliefs are put to the test.

After waking up in an alley covered in her own blood, Faye soon realizes life isn’t always what it seems. Being rescued by a strikingly handsome Hunter named Jaxen, shakes the very morals she had worked her whole life building up. And when she learns that her whole life had been a lie, everything begins to tumble down around her.

Jaxen Gramm never thought true love was an option. Being a Hunter meant he was bound to his Witch...someone completely opposite of Faye. But when he rescues Faye in the alley, she steals his heart with just one look. After realizing just who she is and her importance to their race’s survival, Jaxen is assigned by his Coven to keep her protected.

With the Darkyn Coven on the rise and threatening to wake an ancient evil, Faye has no other option but to accept that her fate is intertwined with the Night Watchmen. Faye must become one of them, just as her parents were before her. Can she learn how to use her newly acquired powers in time to retrieve the Dagger of Retribution before the Darkyn Coven does?
