Cover Reveal: The Contract by Melanie Moreland

contract CR banner


Front coverTyrant by day, a playboy by night. That is the reputation that precedes Richard VanRyan. He lives life the way he wants, no concern for the opinion of others. He cares for no one, is completely unrepentant, and he has no desire to change his ways.
Katharine Elliott works under Richard as his PA. She despises him and his questionable ethics, but endures all the garbage he sends her way, because she needs the job. Her end goal is far more important than the daily abuse and demands she tolerates from her nasty tyrant of a boss.
Until the day, he asks her for something she never expected. A new role with a personal contract— fiancée instead of PA.
What happens when two people who loathe each other, have to live together and act as though they are madly in love?
That’s what happens.
Can the power of love really change a person?
Will they survive the contract?
What do you do when the one person you hate the most becomes the one person you can’t live without?

About the Author

Melanie Moreland lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of twenty-six-plus years. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.

Known as the quiet one with the big laugh, Melanie works at a local university and for its football team. Her job, while demanding, is rewarding as she cheers on her team to victory.

While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys travelling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip.

Melanie delights in a good romance story with some bumps along the way, but is a true believer in happily ever after. When her head isn’t buried in a book, it is bent over a keyboard, furiously typing away as her characters dictate their creative storylines to her, often with a large glass of wine keeping her company.

Blog Tour: The Relentless Series by Karen Lynch

Relentless CoverRelentless

Sara Grey’s world shattered ten years ago when her father was brutally murdered. Now at seventeen, she is still haunted by memories of that day and driven by the need to understand why it happened. She lives a life full of secrets and her family and friends have no idea of the supernatural world she is immersed in or of Sara’s own very powerful gift. 

In her quest for answers about her father’s death, Sara takes risks that expose her and her friends to danger and puts herself into the sights of a sadistic vampire. On the same fateful night she meets Nikolas, a warrior who turns Sara’s world upside down and is determined to protect her even if it’s the last thing she wants. 

Sara’s life starts to spin out of control as she is hunted by an obsessed vampire, learns that her friends have secrets of their own and reels from the truth about her own ancestry. Sara has always been fiercely independent but in order to survive now she must open herself to others, to reveal her deepest secrets. And she must learn to trust the one person capable of breaking down the walls around her.

As I drew near him, I felt the stirring in the back of my mind, the same faint tickle of recognition I’d experienced the moment we met. My stomach fluttered as I remembered our first encounter in the club and then how he had faced down two vampires to save me. But then I remembered his strange behavior. One minute he’d looked at me with something akin to hostility and the next he was swooping in to save my life. Then he was back to being cold and distant again. Which Nikolas was waiting for me now? More importantly, what did he want?



Refuge CoverRefuge

To keep the people she loves safe, Sara left everything she knew behind. She soon learns this new world is nothing like her old one, and she struggles to make a place for herself among the Mohiri. But it soon becomes apparent to Sara and to everyone one around her that she is not your typical warrior. 

As the weeks pass, Sara builds new relationships, copes with her new trainers, and tries to manage her ever-changing powers, while keeping her unique heritage a secret. Looming in the background is the constant shadow of the Master who will do anything to find her. 

Sara finds herself on a journey of self-discovery that uncovers her true strengths and awakens a part of her she never knew existed. She experiences the delight of new friendships, the sweetness and pain of first love, and a loss so deep it could be the thing that finally breaks her. At the end of it all, she discovers that the one place she was supposed to be safe might not be the refuge she thought it was.

My hands tingled and began to glow from the power coursing through them. I could see the light reflected in the vampire’s terrified eyes as he struggled violently in his bonds. Behind me I heard running feet and then the distinct sound of a key being fitted into the lock on the cell door.
The vampire screamed when my hands touched his chest, and he began to writhe convulsively, even though I hadn’t yet released the force of my power. Just being touched by magic was unbearable to him. I stared at him for several seconds as I gathered more power and prepared to strike.



Rogue CoverRogue 

Sara Grey is done hiding and done being afraid. The Master thinks he has her running scared, but she’s taking matters into her own hands and taking her life back. With the help of her friends, she sets out to find the one person who can answer her questions about her past, and who may be able to lead them to the Master. 

On her journey, Sara faces new challenges and dangers, and learns that the world of good and evil is not as clear cut as she had believed. She makes new friends, unexpected allies, and reconnects with people from her past. As her powers continue to change and grow, she transforms from a struggling girl into a strong young warrior. 

But at what cost? How much is Sara willing to sacrifice in her need for independence and her quest for the truth? And will her newfound strength be enough to save her and the people she loves when she finally comes face-to-face with her powerful nemesis? Nothing could have prepared her for what is to come, and it will take everything in her to survive the final test of courage and love.

He rolled away until he lay on his back beside me. I heard a deep sigh and then his hand reached for mine. “I’m sorry about what happened before I left. I didn’t handle it well and I hated leaving you upset. I know how important it is to you to find Madeline, and I should have known you’d expect to be there when we brought her in. But I’m also glad I listened to my gut and didn’t take you with us. This was a rough one.”
I know. “I was scared for you.”
I felt his face turning toward me, and I turned mine so our eyes met.
“That’s how I felt the whole time I was looking for you,” he said gruffly. “I was afraid something would hurt you before I found you.”
“I’m sorry.”
He exhaled deeply. I wish I could explain how it feels, this need to protect you, and how crazy it makes me when you’re in danger.”

Spotlight: Helldiver by Chris Allen


Has Morgan finally met his match?

Alex Morgan – policeman, soldier and spy for INTREPID – commits to the toughest mission of his career, and his chances of survival are slimmer than ever.

 Sent deep into the shadows of Europe’s criminal underbelly, Morgan’s mission is to overthrow an oligarch and bring a spy in from the cold. But his target is closer than he knows.

 As old friends reemerge, it becomes clear that the very heart of Morgan’s black ops division INTREPID faces destruction, and trust, it seems, is little more than a commodity to be bought and sold.

 With INTREPID agent Elizabeth Reigns by his side once again, Morgan must stare fear in the face as his loyalty is tested to its limits.

 Helldiver sees INTERPOL’s ultra secret black ops division INTREPID brought to its knees, and it’s up to Morgan and Reigns to wrest their agency back from the brink.

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Two Brothers: Species by Sofia Diana Gabel


TwoBrothersSpeciesYA Sc- Fi

The third and final book in the Ramtalan Triology brings Argus and Tai Dachel to a critical juncture in their lives. Struggling to maintain some sort of normalcy, the boys soon discover that they’ll never be the same and those around them, including Argus’s girlfriend Lola, are in danger from the Invaders and the government agency AURA. With enhanced abilities, Argus has to come to grips with being different from his brother, and being an enemy to the Ramtalans he thought were his friends. When hyper-intelligent, powerful Argustine Lenox and his sister, Galena, threaten to cleanse the Earth of humans and New Breeds, Argus and Tai have a difficult decision to make. Which side do they join? The Invaders accept him, while the Settler Ramtalans consider him dangerous. As if that’s not enough, Argus is on the brink of adulthood and must choose what sort of man he wants to be; defiant, compassionate, strong or all three. Nothing will matter though if he can’t save the Earth.

Available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.


Argus ran to Lola and dropped to his knees. She wasn’t moving and was pale. Aunt Celeste had one hand on Lola’s forehead and one on her chest, and looked up. “Argus, I’m so sorry.”
“What do you mean? You have to keep trying. You can heal her.” Argus cradled Lola’s head in his lap. “She can’t be dead.”
Aunt Celeste stood. “Nobody can heal a human who’s gone through a shift. It destroys…”
“Don’t. I don’t want to know.” Argus lifted Lola into his arms. “I’m going to take her to Galena.”
“Argus, no! Even Galena can’t heal a human.” Aunt Celeste shook her head and motioned to the couch in the living room. “Why don’t you put her down?”
“No!” Argus looked at Lola’s sweet face. He didn’t ever want to put her down. How could he have killed her? “I don’t accept that there’s nothing that can be done. Ramtala is more advanced than Earth, right? Then someone can heal her.”
Tai rushed over. “Wait, someone can heal her. At least I think so. Aunt Celeste, before Galena took away my computer time, I remember reading something about how the scientists on Ramtala had experimented with humans early on, and accidentally killed them when trying to merge the Ramtalan DNA with human DNA. It wasn’t an easy process. When Ramtalans took host bodies and mated with early humans…”
Aunt Celeste interrupted, “You’re right, Tai. Boys, I didn’t want to tell you that part of our history, but perhaps there is a possibility that…”
Argus blurted, “Whatever it is, Aunt Celeste, I’ll do it. I can’t let Lola die.”
“Bro,” Tai paused. “She’s already dead.”
“But didn’t you say there might be a way to bring her back?” Argus glared at Tai. Was he going back on what he’d just said?
It was Aunt Celeste who answered, “Yes, Argus, there might be a way. But it’s not something we can do easily. And it might not work. The only pure-form I know of here on Earth who has enhanced knowledge and abilities of healing humans is Lenox. Even Commander Jampara can’t help with something like that.”
Argus looked at Lola again. “Then I’ll go to Lenox. I don’t care anymore. He can have my energy for the XTRA-A1. It won’t kill me now that I’ve been converted.”
“Arg, you can’t. We still don’t really know what he’s planning. I know you care for Lola, but use your head. What if you get Lenox to help and then the XTRA-A1 kills you and me, and all of the New Breeds? Will that be worth it?” Tai glanced at Aunt Celeste. “Tell him it’s not a good idea. Sorry I opened my big mouth.”
Aunt Celeste shook her head. “It’s definitely not a good idea. Argus, please put Lola on the couch and let me think about this situation more fully.”
“Of course it’s worth it, Tai. We have to do something now!” Argus felt his temperature rising. “You might be willing to let her die, but I’m not!”
“Argus!” Aunt Celeste shouted. “Control yourself. You won’t do anyone any good if you lose control. There is a time limit for healing a deceased human, but we still have time. To summon help from Lenox would be a mistake. He preys on our weaknesses. Your weakness, Argus, is Lola and your concern for humans. He knows that and he’ll use it against you.”
Argus clutched Lola close. “How much time?”
“Put Lola down on the couch and let me calculate how much time she has.” Aunt Celeste motioned again to the couch. “Argus.”
He nodded. “Okay.” Carefully, he placed Lola on the couch and stepped back while Aunt Celeste knelt beside her. It would be worth giving up everything to see Lola alive again.
Aunt Celeste placed a hand on either side of Lola’s head. A blue aura settled over Lola’s entire body. “The shift has caused internal damage, cellular damage. I would estimate we have no more than ten planetary minutes to revive her.” She removed her hands and the aura faded. “I’m sorry, Argus.”
“Bullshit.” Argus ran to the kitchen and found the Wand of Ramtala leaning against the wall. Just seeing it made his heart race. He grabbed it and immediately felt a rush of adrenaline surge through his veins.
“Argus.” Aunt Celeste was beside him. “The Wand is a powerful extension of Ramtalan energy. Even Galena has to be careful, and she’s fully comingled with it. You’re not. Give it to me.”
“No.” Argus held it tightly and rushed back to Lola. “I’m going to use it to heal her.”
“Bro, you don’t know how.” Tai put his hand on Argus’s shoulder and took hold of the Wand. “Give it to Aunt Celeste.”
Argus glared at Tai. “Take your hand off the Wand, Tai. I do know how to use it. I’m a part of the Wand. I don’t know how to explain it, but it’s like the Wand is telling me what to do. Get your hand off it and stand back.” He knew Tai was trying to help in the only way he knew how, but he didn’t understand the Wand. “I won’t tell you again, brother.”
“Arg, you’re scaring me. Your eyes have those freakish sparks in them again. That Wand’s going to kill you. I can’t let you…” He tightened his grip on the Wand.
Argus felt the energy inside him build up and knew he was about to throw a plasma burst. “Let go, Tai.”
Aunt Celeste came over. “Tai, do what he says.”
“No. You’ll have to kill me, Arg.” Tai raised an eyebrow. “I hope you don’t, but that’s the only way I’m letting you do anything with this Wand.”
“I…” Argus couldn’t control it any longer. “I’m sorry.” The plasma burst he released caused such a shock wave that Tai flew across the room and slammed into the wall, leaving a deep impression.
“Argus!” Aunt Celeste shouted.

About the Author

photoBorn in Sydney, Australia, I moved with my family to the United States when I was only four. Home wasn’t settled for a long time and included living in Toronto, Canada; Henrietta and Buffalo, New York; Northridge, Southern California; a short stint back in Sydney, Australia; Reno, Nevada; Dallas, Texas; Daytona Beach, Florida, with an eventual semi-settled life in Ojai and Ventura, Southern California as a single parent to my three daughters.

Perhaps the unsettled partial nomadic lifestyle is the reason I love to travel. Moving around and travelling to different countries are adventures which serve as potential settings and plots for stories. I’m a multi-genre fiction writer, with degrees in environmental science and archaeology, and coursework in creative writing and criminal justice. This has all helped in developing stories

When not glued to my desk writing or researching, I love spending time with my family and hairless Sphynx cats. Writing is a true passion, born from a love of the written word and how those words can transport the reader to different places or worlds and deliver them back to reality, safe and sound.

He’s not going to explain a freaking thing to me, I think as his mouth settles into a firm line. Asher’s eyes appear half pissed off and half sad. He looks like he’s struggling with something, but he’s not saying anything. I haven’t spent that much time with Asher, but I can tell getting words out of him will take some engine grease and possibly a crowbar.
I think I’d rather skip the part where he has to let me down slow.
“Okay. We’ll talk about it later,” I concede with a shrug and shake of my head.
In the grand scheme of things, I have a pretty good idea of what he’ll say. I mean, honestly? Who would pick a girl like me? I’m not sure how this whole Wraith mating stuff goes, but if the man has a choice, he has to prefer a better crop than me.
I don’t need to be worrying about this now anyway. So what if I felt a connection to the first man probably ever? So what if I clung to him like a monkey on a tree? So what if I feel safe with him, a feeling I haven’t had in a very long time? So freaking what? I don’t deserve a man like him. After the lives I’ve taken… happiness just isn’t in the cards for me.
“I’m all right. It’s not going to hurt. I didn’t even notice it was dislocated before now. It’ll get popped back in, I’ll be able to heal and walk. Win-win. You can go. I’ll be fine,” I tell him, my voice sounding almost dead even to my ears. I need to cut this off as soon as possible. His face tells me he is reluctant, but he needs to go.
“Come on Asher,” Evan says at his elbow, and she escorts him from the room, practically dragging him behind her up the stairs.
My eyes are on the stairs long after he disappears from my sight. In those moments, I take the time to shore up my heart. I don’t need to rely on Asher. I shouldn’t even rely on Aurelia or Rhys or prey on the hospitality of the Wraiths.

I should do the right thing. For once, I should do what I’ve always needed to do. But I need to be able to walk to do it.
