Precomanda LEDA: REACŢIE ÎN LANŢ, vol. 3 din seria CHIMIE PERFECTĂ de Simone Elkeles

Clik pe imagine pentru precomanda!
 Când Luis mi-a zâmbit şi am simţit fiorul atracţiei, am intrat în panică. Nu-mi permit să las garda jos, iar un tip ca Luis e la fel de periculos ca Marco. Îmi dau seama de asta după felul cum surâde. Arată destul de inocent, dar nu mă păcăleşte el pe mine. Poate pe alte fete, dar nu pe mine…

Teoretic, Nikki are dreptate. Dar practic…
În viaţă, ea încearcă să se conducă după trei reguli: băieţii mint ca să-şi atingă scopurile, să nu te încrezi într-un băiat care îţi spune „te iubesc” şi să nu ieşi niciodată cu un tip din cartierul de sud al orăşelului Fairfield. Chiar dacă părinţii ei s-au născut în Mexic, Nikki, în calitate de fiică de doctor, are mai multe în comun cu vecinii săi din nordul oraşului decât cu colegii de şcoală din banda Latino Blood. Dar când îl cunoaşte pe Luis, este tentată să-şi încalce toate principiile.
Sunt conştient că am în mine o anumită doză de nebunie – plăcerea de a înfrunta pericolele… simt adrenalina curgându-mi prin vene – recunoaşte Luis. Pentru el, cea mai mare provocare cu care s-a confruntat vreodată este cum să o convingă pe Nikki să-i dea o şansă unui intrus din cartierul de sud, asta până să devină, la rândul său, ţinta noului lider al bandei Latino Blood.
Vor fi oare sentimentele sale pentru Nikki suficient de puternice pentru a-l opri să intre într-o lume întunecată şi brutală şi a trăi periculos tot restul vieţii?



Precomanda LEDA: Cand esti vrajitoare… de Carolyn MacCullough

Clik pe imagine pentru precomanda.

Fiica ta va fi una dintre cele mai puternice vrăjitoare pe care le-am avut vreodată în familia noastră. Va fi ca un far călăuzitor pentru noi toţi.

TAMSIN GREENE face parte dintr-o familie de vrăjitoare cu lungă tradiţie. În ziua în care s-a născut, bunica ei a prezis că va fi cea mai Talentată dintre ele. Dar Talentul lui Tamsin nu s-a confirmat.
Acum, când are şaptesprezece ani, îşi petrece cea mai mare parte din timp la şcoala cu internat din Manhattan, unde măcar poate pretinde că este normală. Însă, în timpul vacanţelor de vară, este obligată să revină acasă şi să lucreze la librăria magică a familiei sale.
Într-o seară, un tânăr foarte atrăgător, profesor la Universitatea New York, intră în librărie şi o confundă pe Tamsin cu sora ei mai mare, extrem de Talentata Rowena. Pentru prima dată în viaţa ei, Tamsin se simte privită cu respect şi admiraţie, şi, înainte de a apuca să se gândească mai bine, acceptă să caute pentru acesta un obiect valoros şi vechi pe care familia lui l-a pierdut cu mai bine de un secol în urmă. Dar căutarea se dovedeşte a fi mult mai ciudată decât părea la prima vedere.

The story of Jack Henry and Laurelyn continues... How do you move on when he’s every song you sing? After Laurelyn Prescott walks away from the love of her life, she returns to Nashville to pursue the only dream she has left. Determined to find a distraction from the pain of losing Jack Henry, she immerses herself in her music. But with her old life comes old acquaintances and new expectations. When Laurelyn refuses her record producer’s outrageous demands, she finds herself without a career—until an unforeseen opportunity presents itself. From there it’s a rocket ride straight to the top where Laurelyn finds the success she’s always dreamed of. Will it be enough to bring her the happiness she so deserves, or will the absence of Jack Henry leave her wanting more? Jack Henry McLachlan never expected to fall in love with Laurelyn Prescott—but he did. After he foolishly let her slip through his fingers, he spends three months searching for her, but their reunion doesn’t come easy. The woman he finds isn’t the same one who drifted away without a goodbye. No longer an insecure girl on an Australian adventure, this Laurelyn is a successful musician with a promising career. Her dreams are becoming a reality, and Jack is terrified his American girl won’t have a place for him in her new life. With only a month to convince her otherwise, will it be enough time to make her visualize a life beyond the glitz and glamour, a life that includes him?

Blog Tour: Project Five Fifteen Series by Samantha Summers


Series: Project Five Fifteen #1
Publication: May 12th 2012
Genre: YA Romantic Thriller



For every choice, there is a consequence.

Ronnie and Kalen are finally together, living their life in secret under the radar of the people who want Kalen dead. But when a visit from an old friend sends Kalen away on a rescue mission, Ronnie finds herself plunged back into the world of Project Five Fifteen quicker than she ever thought possible.

It’s fast becoming clear The Agency will never give up their hunt for the boys, and a betrayal closer to home starts a chain reaction that will change everything. Now, caught in a deadly web of lies and deceit, Ronnie is forced to question who she can trust; even the person she once trusted most.

As enemies close in, Kalen’s past threatens to destroy the happiness they sacrificed so much for, and it’s only a matter of time before the ultimate choice must be.

Excerpt:
I arrived at the docks wishing I hadn’t. On my own in the darkness, all I knew for sure was that I was astonishingly cold and a long way from home. What was I expecting to see? From Laith’s words I couldn’t be sure what was going to happen, if anything.
It wasn’t long, however, before I saw movement from inside one of the big white yachts, just as Laith had predicted. My stomach lurched as I thought about what I’d done. This was it – no turning back. If he told me something bad about my father, I’d have to say goodbye to him. With that thought, I had to force my feet not to run. Finding out the truth about the boy to whom my happiness was bound so tightly made me numb with fear.
Dressed entirely in black, he leapt silently from the boat and hotfooted it along the jetty in my direction. Up until that moment I’d been annoyed, but my anger quickly turned to fear when I saw his urgency. As he ran, his feet seemed to barely touch the floor beneath him; he looked lighter than air. I was reminding myself to be angry – not impressed – when two huge German Shepherds launched themselves from the boat and gave chase along the docks. Kalen reached me, his eyes widening. A flash of anger clouded his features.
‘Dammit, Ronnie!’ he said.
He grabbed my arm and forced me to run with him. I said nothing; there was no time. Being chased by two savage dogs gave me the adrenaline kick I needed and I ran faster than I ever thought I could. But I knew we couldn’t outrun them. We reached a brick wall and I turned in horror, watching the two animals gaining on us, snarling and barking ferociously. I flinched against the wall, my heart pounding in my chest. Still holding me, Kalen glanced towards the black water then back to the dogs. Any second now they’d be mauling us...
Then Kalen’s arms were around me, lifting me off the ground, tossing me like a rugby ball into the air. I gasped. Flailed. Cold air rushed past me. I heard the yelp of a dog before I hit the freezing water. What felt like a thousand needles pierced my skin all at once, evaporating into hundreds of tiny bubbles. I gasped for air as I broke the surface.


About the author:


Born in London, an only child with an overactive imagination, Sam spent much of her childhood telling ghost stories to her younger cousins and dreaming about far away places. She graduated university with a BA in marketing, but it wasn't long before her passion for storytelling and travel got the better of her. She currently lives in Sydney, Australia, where you'll probably find her hidden away in the corner of a park somewhere - writing, reading, dreaming or watching movies on her iPad. She loves everything spy and assassin and has a slightly unhealthy obsession with Star Wars, mainly Darth Vader.

Series: Beautiful Madness, #1
Publication date: May 21, 2013
Genre: YA Fantasy

For centuries, Wonderland thrived as the domain of beautiful bedlam and unapologetic madness. It was a place like no other. All it took was one girl slipping in through the cracks of the universe to start chaos spiraling toward order. In the 150 years since Alice’s visit, the realm has become tainted—almost normal. Rabbits in waistcoats and playing card minions are little more than creatures of myth, and Wonderland is literally falling to pieces.

For Gwen, Rose, and Lucky, Wonderland is home, and yet they know little of its former glory. When the Alice prophecy resurfaces, they’ll have one chance to use Wonderland’s own legends to bring a little mayhem back into their reality. For she who controls Alice controls the fate of Wonderland.

Teaser from Sentinel by Jennifer L. Armentrout




“Poor Persephone.” He stared down his nose at the god. “That must be hard on her if that’s what gets you off.”
I wrinkled my nose.
“If her name drips from your forked tongue one more time, I will rip it out,” Hades promised, voice deadly low.
Was his tongue really forked?
His lips curled up on one side. “What? You don’t like me talking about your wife?” He looked over at the three of us. “Is abduction as a means of marriage still all the rage these days?”
Seth arched a brow.
“Uh… no,” I said, shaking my head. “It’s really frowned upon.”
Hades cheeks deepened in color. “You’re really pushing me.”
“I haven’t even begun to push," the Titan replied.
Aiden sighed and said under his breath, “Well, this conversation has really digressed.”
“Yeah,” I muttered, crossing my arms as I watched the two try to out snark each other.
This is going smoothly. Seth’s voice filtered through my thoughts.
I kept my eyes on the Titan. He’s not that… bad. I mean, all things considered, right?
His answering chuckle tugged at my lips. I sort of like him.
Of course.

Love at 11 by Mari Mancusi ~ Excerpt & Giveaway


  Genre: Contemporary
Age Group:  New Adult
Re-release date: April 24, 2013
Event Organizer: AToMR Tours

When Maddy graduated from Columbia University, she was ready to change the world. She'd get a job at Newsline, meet a nice guy, and live happily ever after with a real designer handbag on her arm. Five years later, she's stuck producing puff pieces for News 9 San Diego--where "if it bleeds, it leads." She's still single, her family's falling apart, and so is her knock-off Kate Spade.

Then Jamie Hayes walks through her newsroom door. The former filmmaker is everything Maddy has ever dreamed of. Creative, smart, sweet—and with eyes that could make a girl melt. The perfect guy…but perfectly unavailable. And the more Maddy tries to stay away—the further she starts to fall.

Now a secret scoop from her favorite knock-off purse guy has Maddy chasing a lead that could make her career. Or destroy it forever. How far is she willing to go to broadcast the truth? And will this breaking news lead to a happily ever after…or a broken heart?

Stay tuned...it's the story of a lifetime.
Excerpt:
“So, got any fun plans for the weekend?” Jamie asked, interrupting my musings.
Well, I had planned on painting my bedroom forest green, but suddenly that sounded overwhelmingly lame. After all, he was a filmmaker. He probably spent his weekends going to trendy parties with movie stars and complicated cocktails. I couldn’t possibly tell him I had no plans and was going to stay home and paint.
“Actually, I’ve got a hot date.”
Oh, Maddy? Why did you say that? Once again, my mouth had blurted before my brain could rationalize that the impulsive idea to tell Jamie I had a hot date was an extremely bad one on many, many levels. The most basic being because it was a complete and utter lie.
“Oh yeah?” Jamie turned to look at me. “Who’s the lucky guy?”
He said it so casually it made my stomach ache. Not a hint of jealousy in his voice. He’d obviously moved on from last night’s encounter already. Couldn’t care less that I had a potential new lover. And why would he? He had his fiancée, after all. I was nothing to him.
Get a grip, Maddy. Forget about last night. Or you’re in for a world of hurt.
I realized Jamie was waiting for me to describe imaginary-date man. “Um, well, he’s this surfer guy.” Yeah, surfers were cool. “With blond hair, blue eyes. About six foot.” If I were going to have an imaginary date, he might as well be a hottie. “He’s sponsored, actually. Does all these competitions.”
“Really? What’s his name? I did a documentary on surfing in So-Cal. I know most of the guys.”
Argh. Maddy, why? Why not just say he was some normal guy Jamie would have never heard of?
“Oh, you probably wouldn’t have heard of him . . .”
“Try me.”
“. . . because he’s from, um, Czechoslovakia, ” I said, naming the country farthest away from So-Cal that I could think of. “Just moved here last month.”
“A Czech surfer?” Jamie asked, sounding intrigued. “Interesting, since the country’s so far inland. How’d he become so good at surfing?”
Oh yeah, I’d conveniently forgotten the Czech Republic wasn’t exactly beachfront property. Duh.
“His father sent him to, um, Ibiza every summer as a kid. He learned there.” Ibiza was an island, right? I was saved.
“The Spanish Island with all the nightclubs? I didn’t realize it was a kid-friendly place.”
Darn. “Um, no, no. Ibiza, Florida. It’s near, um, Fort Lauderdale.” I laughed nervously.
“Hmm. Never heard of it.” Jamie shrugged. “I spent a few months in Miami last year, too. Must be a small town.”
“Yeah. Real tiny, evidently.” Please don’t press me on it, I begged silently. I was running out of lies.
Luckily at that moment, we turned in to the doctor’s office. I breathed a sigh of relief. Jamie parked the SUV and turned to me. “Well, I hope you have fun on your date. You just let me know if this blond-haired, blue-eyed Czech surfer who grew up in a tiny town in Florida gives you a hard time, okay?”
I felt my face heat. Was he teasing me? Did he know I made the whole thing up? I narrowed my eyes in anger. I wanted to protest, tell him I did have a real date. But problem was, I didn’t.
I know! I’ll find one!
Jodi had been trying to get me to sign up for that online dating service for months. She said it had tons of cute guys. From all over. I was sure out of the thousands available I could find a blond-haired, blue-eyed Czech surfer who summered in Florida, right?
Yup, that’s what I’d do. I’d go home from the shoot, find myself a surfer and go out on a date. Then I’d take pictures with my camera phone and casually show them to Jamie on Monday to prove that I wasn’t some pathetic lying girl who made up a whole person because she was too embarrassed to admit she planned to stay home and paint her bedroom.
“What are you up to this weekend?” I asked as I waited for him to unload his gear from the back of the Expedition.
He groaned. “Nothing as exciting as your weekend. I’ve got to paint the bedroom of my new place.”
Oh.

About the Author:

Nearly every writer struggles to put together information about themselves, perhaps because we’re so used to detailing the lives and ways of others. For the most part I am a writer, editor, photographer, and all-around artist living in the wilds north of Toronto, Ontario. I thrive on the juxtaposition of beauty and grit, enjoy urban crawls, indie everything, and time well-spent in the woods.

Excerpt:
It always starts like this. My vision starts to blur and the depth of the dirty brick walls plummets into a single plane, like I’m staring into an abyss that never ends. Pins and needles prick their way over my body and I fall backward, sinking through layers of sticky black sludge. I land with a thud and David is before me speaking urgently. His eyes are lined with confusion and anger.
“Piper, I don’t like what you’re doing. Please, for the sake of our mother and our friends, put an end to it now,” he says to me. We’re at our place in the mountains, the stars peering onto us like frail paper lanterns. I look at him seriously, my hand over my mouth, mind reeling at what he’d said.
“You don’t understand, David. I love him,” I reply, feeling tears brim my eyelids.
“… … ….” David’s lips are moving, but the noise coming out of his mouth is like raw static.
“I can’t hear you. What’s going on?” I ask. He looks like I just slapped him in the face.
“I can’t believe how selfish you are! “… … … ” He shouts, then comes the static again.
“David, I think there’s something wrong right now. I haven’t done anything!” I cry frantically, grabbing his shoulders and shaking him. He brushes me off and gives me a hard stare.
“People are going to get hurt, Piper. I need you to understand that!” he shouts.
“I don’t understand, David!” I plead, “How are people going to get hurt?”
I hear more static come from his mouth, but he doesn’t seem to notice, he just keeps talking, clearly thinking he’s telling me something important. Frantically, I look around for a clue as to what is going on. When I turn back to him, David’s face starts to deteriorate and his body fades away to dust.

Book Description:
I grab her exploring finger just as it reaches my happy trail—a trail that if I let her wander down further will lead us to do things we can’t take back. Things like three-word phrases being confessed that would end me if I was rejected. Things like selfishly wanting to own her body and doing things to her that would make my fantasies blush. And things like making her promises too soon that won’t do either of us any good. She makes me want a future that’s not possible, and one I don’t deserve. Listening to my ego got me into this situation. Will listening to my heart get me out?
