“Brilliantly crafted and written!” – Megan King, Indie Book Reviewers

“An energetic adventure debut with stellar action sequences. Smith’s writing is intelligent and often lyrical. Her exuberant prose never fails to dazzle.” – Kirkus Media

“Author K.N. Smith uses her mastery of the written word to weave an entrancing, yet powerful tale of adventure that keeps you turning pages in an unquenchable desire to find out what happens next.” – Publishers Daily Reviews

- Soft swirls of light rose, dissipating

as they spoke. 

“The others are capable, but they need our help.

Peace will not come easily. We must give them


“Druth will destroy our home. He will hurt the gifted

ones if the nectar finds him.” 

“They will not survive him.”

“The others must seek the will for survival. They   

must understand their own power.”

A transient suspension held the beings in the

preserve. Faint flecks of light dotted the landscape.

“In these two worlds, our ideas converge, yet  


“He must be stopped!”

“It is true.”

“Naculea must endure.”

“It is chosen.”

Now resting upon the succulent, running rich with the

life-giving nectar, the beings absorbed its energy,

glowing as bright as the sun. 

Thirst became a distant need yet again.

“We must warn… the one.”

“The one who sees.”

“The one who sees and hears much.”

“It is the only way.”

Final clicks faded into silence.

InkSlinger PR Presents: Black Hearts by Tori Fox; #ExcerptReveal, #ComingSoon, #TBR, #PreOrder

It’s finally time to reveal the gorgeous excerpt for Tori Fox’s Black Hearts. It’s the first book in her new rockstar romance series, and it’s coming September 8th!

Book Title: Black Hearts
Author: Tori Fox
Genre: Dark Rockstar Romance

About Black Hearts: 

I’ve been in love with Charlie Fortier since we were seven years old and she punched me in the face for pulling on her pigtails. 

She was the girl next door. 

I was the punk ass kid who got in trouble. 

She told me she loved me when she was seventeen. I broke her heart instead. 

Then I left. And my band became one of the biggest in the world. 

She was always around. On the sidelines. Being my friend. 

And I’ve spent the last twelve years in love with her. She just doesn’t know. 

But I can’t tell her. Because I can’t be with her.

I made too many deals to keep her safe. 

I owe too many debts for those same reasons. 

Now I'm back home. And she is everywhere. Staying away is too hard. But the truth is harder. 

I have scars on my black heart and they all belong to her.

Exclusive Excerpt:

I scribble away in my notebook. A jumble of words and feelings. Anger, fear, frustration, lust. I’ve never let my feelings get like this with Charlie before. Even when we dated for two months in high school. This is on an entirely different level. And I don’t know if it’s because of the raging jealousy in me or if it’s because spending time with her, the little that I have has knocked me into a time warp, into a place where Charlie was everything to me.   

She fell asleep last night on my lap, halfway through the movie. I ran my fingers through her soft lilac hair as she snored softly on my thigh. It took every ounce of willpower I had not to let my dick come to life. I did let myself lean over and kiss her forehead, remembering what it was like to touch her body. But that was twelve years ago. We were kids on the verge of adulthood. And now she is like an entirely new work of art I want to explore.   

I want to press my lips across her slender neck and down her clavicle. I want to lick between those perfect perky breasts and trace the lines of the tattoo I know she has there. I want to inhale the sweet, sweet smell of her and then devour her until she is crying my name.   

She’s always been my Charlie. She always will be my Charlie.   

Ever since we were kids riding bikes in the street. When I taught her how to skateboard and use a BB gun. She taught me about the beauty of words. And music, we discovered that together sitting underneath the stars on those humid nights when both of our parents were drunk or fighting and we wanted to drown out the sound. Nirvana, Beastie Boys, Foo Fighters, Jawbreaker, Metallica, Primus, Soundgarden, Nine Inch Nails, Pearl Jam. All bands that flooded are headphones.   

Then it all changed when her mom cheated on her dad then left him for Richard LeBlanc. Charlie was taken away from me, moved to an affluent side of Baton Rouge. Not that it stopped us from seeing each other. And eventually falling into something more than friendship.   

But I fucked up any chance with her when I saved her by making a deal with her stepfather. And I would do it over and over again, if it meant she survived the shit he put her through. She has no idea what I did. How much it’s destroyed my life but I wanted her safe.   

And with Elijah, she isn’t safe.   

I carried her to my guest bedroom last night even though I wanted her in my bed. The only woman I’ve ever wanted in my bed.   

Then I spent hours upstairs on the roof drinking, smoking, and writing. Years of words I left unsaid to her. I let my black heart crack. And left everything on pages of paper. Words crossed out and scribbled, the story of our life.  

About the SAINTS & SINNERS series:


Saints & Sinners are the biggest rock band in the world and they are back home in New Orleans. A city full of sex and sin. But they have secrets that lie deep in the underground, tied to the criminals that run the city. They promised to keep those secrets under lock and key. But the women who crack the barriers around their scarred hearts will also expose their secrets. 

Saints & Sinners is a raw, gritty, and angsty Rockstar romance series with a darkness lurking throughout the pages.

Social Butterfly PR Presents: The Forever Love Duet by Siobhan Davis; #ReleaseBlitz, #NowAvailable, #OutNow, #TBR, #Live

The Forever Love Duet, a captivating, angst-filled and emotional new adult romance collection featuring When Forever Changes and No Feelings Involved from USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author Siobhan Davis is available now!

An emotional, angsty, new adult romance duet from USA Today & WSJ bestselling author Siobhan Davis. Over 700 pages of binge-worthy romance. Each book focuses on a new couple and ends with an HEA.

WHEN FOREVER CHANGES (Forever Love Book 1)

Looking back, I should have seen the signs. Perhaps I did, but I subconsciously chose to ignore them.

From the time I was ten, when I first met Dylan, I knew he was my forever guy.

Dylan was more than just my best friend, my childhood sweetheart, my lover. He was my soul mate. We were carved from the same whole—destined to be together forever.

Until he changed.

And I believed I was no longer good enough.

Until he shattered me so completely, it felt like I ceased to exist.

And I’d never experienced such heart-crushing pain.

Until he leveled me a second time, and I truly wanted to die.

But I had to stay strong because I wasn’t alone in this cruel twist of fate.

I can’t help wondering if I had seen the signs earlier, if I’d pushed him, would it have been enough to save us?

Or had fate already decided to alter our forever?

For readers who enjoy friends-to-lovers, brother’s best friend, second chance, angsty new adult college romance. Some scenes may be triggering - please read the note at the start of the book.

NO FEELINGS INVOLVED (Forever Love Book 2)

Ryan James doesn’t believe in love.

It’s a truth he learned early in life.

He broke his golden rule one time, but Myndi trampled all over his heart, cementing his belief that love is a lie and not worth the effort.

Now he’s returned to his cynical views and promiscuous lifestyle, racking up more notches on his bedpost than he can count.

Until Summer Petersen comes crashing into his world, threatening to knock down his walls with her tempting body and sunny, sweet personality.

Summer is determined to lose her V-card before she starts freshman year of college, and the hot, older guy with the cute dimples, dazzling smile, and rippling biceps is just the man for the job. Ryan doesn’t take much persuading, and he rocks her world, giving her a night to remember.

When they walk away, there’s an agreement it was a one-time thing. Ryan doesn’t do feelings, and Summer doesn’t want to be tied down at eighteen.

But when she moves into her brother Austin’s apartment, she’s shocked to discover her new roomie is the guy who recently popped her cherry.

Ryan can’t believe he slept with Austin’s baby sister, and if he finds out, he’ll literally kill him. Keeping their hook up a secret is nonnegotiable. Keeping his thoughts, and his hands, off Summer, less so. Because the longer he’s around her, the more he finds himself catching feelings for the gorgeous brunette.

Summer doesn’t want to care for her older brother’s best friend, but Ryan makes her feel things she’s never felt before, and she’s slowly falling under his spell.

Embarking on an illicit affair behind Austin’s back has train wreck written all over it, but provided they keep their feelings in check, they can end this before he ever finds out.

It’s not like either of them is in love.


For readers who enjoy brother’s best friend/best friends’ little sister, age gap, second chance, forbidden, angsty new adult romance.

Goddess Fish Promotions Presents: Silver To The Heart by Brien Feathers; #BookTour, #NowAvailable, #OutNow, #TBR, #Live, #Giveaway

This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions
Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.

Silver to the Heart
by Brien Feathers
GENRE: Dark fantasy, urban fantasy (adult, not YA)
NOTE: This book is free during book tour.



— So begins the apocalypse, with death and a story of love —

An old soul (several centuries old), the lover, fighter, and telekinetic Drake receives an order to safeguard Ana, a mortal with Elder Talent.

Ana, an artist beset by haunting visions, falls for the perfect stranger while venturing home to mediate emergent family chaos.

Past-warlord and present commander Sasuke wields his telepathic might to outwit Council traitors in an effort to save the human realm and its Guardian from a new Dark War.

Criminal and light bender Lou, now sought by the Council to answer for his sins, seeks shelter with the Reverend—an Elder fit to bypass rules of magic meant to be unbreakable.

As time’s last grains of sand deplete, an ancient battle may renew, with pieces of the fractured realm imperiling man’s modern world. Though few on Earth are cognizant, dark days now lie ahead. . .


One fate, two paths, six singular perspectives, and plethoric danger.  

Contemporary fantasy at its polychromic finest—pure delight.

 Universal Buy Link:



Arrogant men stood different, carried themselves different, and smirked when they should smile. The redhead clearly enjoyed his own company and Ana dug people who loved themselves—narcissists. Her therapist would say that was a problem, but she wasn’t here, so who cared? 

Tilting his head in a question and looking directly at her, the redhead arched an eyebrow; she’d been staring at him. A normal person would have smiled, maybe even waved, but Ana rolled her eyes and turned back to the bar. Because I have no game.

“Here, girl,” said the bartender, and her drink appeared. When Ana exchanged her card for the bourbon, he asked, “Open tab?”

“Nah, I’m about to be out of here.”

“Aight girl.”

“Hey, how old is the kid over there? The redhead on the terrace, six o’clock,” asked Ana. She lived alone and had no dignity, so why not? 

The bartender stared behind Ana, squinting. “I carded him already.” Yeah, because Ana looked like she was from the liquor license revoking… agency? 

“I’ve seen him in here before. He’s all right,” said the bartender answering the question Ana hadn’t asked. “The blonde is hot, though,” he continued. 

“Is he looking at me?” Ana asked. 

“Nope, he’s looking at the blonde.” With that, he took her card and turned.

Ana threw a glance over her shoulder—carefully. He was talking to a blonde wearing an off-the-shoulder black dress. The woman’s face was turned away from Ana but the snooty attire said ‘not a college kid’.  Perhaps he liked older women, which was good, because Ana wasn’t eighteen or nineteen… or however old he was. At twenty-seven, she was already trying to rob cradles—she would need more than one therapist soon.


Author Bio:

Brien Feathers is a fantasy author living in the land of permanent frost, horses, and Mongols. She likes reading, writing (of course), riding (horses and husbands), drinking dark beer, and checking things off a to-do list. 

Although she claims to love everyone equally, she really loves her youngest son the most. He has autism superpowers that allow him to speak all types of rare languages including drumbeats, elevator dings, and police sirens. 

Miss Feathers loves grey days, orange cats, and all creatures human or otherwise. And she hopes you will love her world (fantasy) and people (characters) as well.  



Do your roots help you in writing your stories? What is your inspiration?

I’m Mongolian and that is where I live now, but I’ve spent a great deal of my adult life in Dallas, TX— which is where my American English comes from. Perhaps it’s because I’m Mongolian but I love old warrior cultures: Vikings, Samurais, and of course, Mongols. 

‘Light of Adua’ is a dark fantasy series set in the modern world, and ‘Silver to the Heart’, Book 1, spends most of its time in New Orleans, and a made-up small town in Texas. But my cast is diverse. One of my absolute favorite characters is Ayasu Sasuke. As a human, he lived in the early 1500s in feudal Japan, during the Warring States era as a warlord. 

In ‘Silver to the Heart’, Sasuke is the commander of the Elder High Council. Although he’s not a point-of-view character in Book 1, he’s always a driving force behind the story. Traditional himself but married to a French teleporter, he defies norms. My fascination with old Japan was my inspiration for his character.

I have a Tanzanian healer, a Russian telekinetic, and an American guardian, but no Mongolian characters as of yet. I think because I’ve moved around a lot when I was young, my roots are global, and I appreciate and love all cultures in their many varieties equally. I think differences are as beautiful as flaws in both real humans as well as fictional characters.

As far as inspirations go, I’m afraid I’m one of those who get compelled to write rather than inspired. A bit mad myself, the characters speak to me and compel me to write their stories. Their voices loop in my head and don’t afford me ordinary thoughts until I write down the story. 

Despite being dark fantasy, the Light of Adua series has disappointingly little smut. However, I do play with complex relationships between characters who’s known each other for centuries. For instance, Drake, one of my main characters for Book 1 has a rather obsessive relationship with Sasuke, whom he considers to be akin to his father. Drake has killed his real father in his backstory. 

If you don’t mind the dark, please give the series a shot, Book 1 is perma-free across all retailers. Only the theme is dark, but the characters themselves are rather humorous, or at least I hope they are. 

Thank you for having me here, and as you read this, a Mongol is waving at you from across the globe… with a hand and not a sword— I’m one of the friendly ones.



Brien Feathers will be awarding $30 Amazon/BN GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.
