GIVEAWAY IS INTERNATIONAL!
It’s great to be back here at Bookin It Reviews with the fantastic Talina! Today I’m here as part of the final leg of my Paranormal Pandemonium 2011 Blog Tour which is all about my amazing Winter Warmers book deals and will feature the books in the offer.
My Winter Warmers deals run until January 15th 2012 and there are plenty of fantastic reads to choose from, all priced between $0.99 and $2.99 and in a range of lengths between novella and long novels, and a variety of paranormal romance sub-genres including sinful angels, sexy vampires, seductive werewolves, and even a super-hot demon and sassy witch pairing. What better way to pass a chilly winter or relax in the sunshine if you're down under, than curled up in the arms of some paranormal heroes, letting yourself be swept along in their romance and adventures?
The story I’m going to talk about today is Ascension, a hot sexy paranormal romance novel that is currently on offer for only $0.99 (normally $3.99).
Ascension is the story of Lealandra, a powerful witch on the verge of her ascension, a time when the magic that lives symbiotically within her will reach the pinnacle of its power and mature. Most witches don’t survive their ascension and instead fall prey to their magic, which seizes control of them and uses them like a marionette in order to do as it pleases for a short period before its host dies. Lealandra’s odds are dramatically lessened by the fact that someone is out to kill her. They’ve murdered her Counter-Balance, the witch that helped her retain control over her magic by absorbing some of its power, and now they’re after her. No longer able to trust her coven in New York City where the attacks took place, she flees into the city and eventually back into the life of her half-demon ex-lover and demon hunter, Taig. Taig is the son of a powerful demon from the underworld and his mortal wife, and he has serious issues with his demon lineage and that side of himself, enough that he’s never revealed his demonic appearance to Lealandra and can’t bring himself to believe that she could love a monster like him. When Lealandra appears back in his life after six years apart and asks for his assistance and protection, he wants something in return—her.
It’s the first story in a new series for me, the Shadow and Light Trilogy, and the first time I’m writing a series that follows a single couple. I’ve written books in the past that I have then penned a sequel to, but this is different. I set out with the intent of writing a trilogy, and flitted back and forth between doing it or not, but now I’ve fallen firmly on the side of writing it as a series. I’ve really enjoyed building the world for this couple, a place in which their relationship is forbidden due to the continuing battle for dominance between witches and demons, and thinking about the magic involved and the demons too, and the dark sexy and passionate dynamic between the hero and heroine. Taig isn’t pretty as a demon. He’s vicious, scaly, and has horns and wings, but he’s still sexy to Lealandra, and I’m sure that readers will find him attractive even as a demon too! I built a world for this couple that demands further exploration and created characters that I think will leave readers wanting to find out what they do next and how their relationship progresses. The trilogy is about the events that take place as a consequence of them trying to deepen their forbidden relationship and the way they grow as an individual too, with Lealandra’s bond with her magic and Taig’s growing acceptance of his demonic side.
So if you’re a reader looking for an action-packed, magical and passionate urban fantasy romance with a difference, then head on over to my website and check out the excerpt of Ascension:
A witch on the verge of achieving phenomenal power, Lealandra must turn to her half-breed demon ex-lover Taig for protection from the dark force that is after her and also from her own magic.
With her Counter-Balance dead and her coven against her, Taig’s blood and power is the only thing that can help her control her magic and survive the ascension and gain the strength to defeat her enemy.
Old feelings come flooding back as Taig allows her into his world and Lealandra finds herself fighting not only for survival but to win his broken heart again and heal the pain in their past. Can he forgive her for walking out on him all those years ago and will he ever believe her when she tells him that he’s not a monster but the man that she loves?
