About the Book

For fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent…this exciting new science-fiction romance series, filled with twists and turns, will take you for a wild ride! 

When Riley heads off to boarding school for a summer work-study program, she knows it’ll be demanding. What she doesn’t expect? To be thrust into an intense physical training program described as special, exclusive and worst of all–top-secret. She signed up for tuition assistance, not to be held in a secret government facility for boot camp…

Welcome to The Division, the government agency that’s so classified, most United States senators have never heard of it. 

The Division wants Riley bad, but she can’t figure out why. Skeptical of what she’s being told, Riley’s determined to uncover the truth. Boot camp is intense, physically and mentally draining. The upside? One of her new teammates is the cutest boy ever. Watching Finn hit the gym wearing a tank top doesn’t suck–although sometimes his brooding attitude does. But when training forces Riley to confront her tragic past, even Finn’s big biceps aren’t enough to make her want to stay…

Beware: The Division isn’t something you just walk away from. You better run. 

Riley realizes her capabilities and strengths are greater than she’d ever imagined. But she also learns she wasn’t just chosen for this special program…

She was made for it.

Author Interview

Q: Wow, you’re interviewing yourself…how pompous!

Right? It’s to tell people more about the series, lol. Although I should admit that I normally talk to myself a lot, so this isn’t much of a departure.

Q: Tell us about “The Division” – it’s a bunch of teenagers with psychic powers, right? How did you get inspired?

Everyone on the team has psychic powers, yes. I was watching “Stranger Things” on Netflix and I WAS SO PSYCHED they were testing poor Eleven for psychic powers. But I was also like, YEEHAW! Because I LOVE psychic powers, and I can’t remember the last time I saw or read something that included them. I’ve always been obsessed by the concept, and there’s so many variations of powers, so many incarnations it can take… Anyway, after watching that show and having that reaction, I thought, other people must love this stuff, too, I can’t be the only one. So I wanted to give us all more!

Q: Tell us about the main character, Riley Payne.

Riley is a ‘normal’ girl dealing with a lot. Her father and sister died in a car accident and her mother started drinking heavily after it happened. She just wants to get out of her house and go to boarding school, but she gets more than she bargained for when she abruptly gets recruited into a secret agency…

Q: The ‘secret agency’ is The Division, correct?

Yes. It’s a secret cell of teenagers who were genetically engineered with psychic gifts. They work for the American government to combat domestic terrorism.

Riley thinks they’re nuts, of course. Until she unlocks her powers, then she’s blown away by what she can do.

Q: As the series goes on, you get into genetic engineering, fated love, eco-terrorism, loyalty, isolation, human nature, climate change…some pretty heavy themes. But would you describe the series as a difficult read?

I don’t think so, but certainly some parts were hard to write – like about Riley missing her dad and her sister. I still cry when I read those parts. And in the second book, an eco-terrorist is introduced, and some terrible things happen in the book. So yeah, there’s definitely a heaviness to some of what the characters are dealing with. But they’re teenagers, and their youth is sort of a tonic against everything they’re dealing with. They still care about their friends. They still want to hang out, tell stories, joke around. They are still very interested in falling in love. I think my writing style is naturally light and breezy, so it’s sort of a counterpoint to the storyline. If that makes sense, lol.

Q: What’s your favorite part of this series?

Riley and Finn’s relationship. They have so much on their plates, and they’re so young, but they genuinely care for each other in a way that makes me ache.

Q: What do you do when you’re not writing?

I have three large, unruly boys who like to play every sport and eat as much food as possible. When I’m not at my computer, I’m busy carting them around and grocery shopping. But I also love to relax with a great book or television show – I am currently completely obsessed with Riverdale, OMG!!!

Thanks for having me! Happy reading!!!

Publication Date: February 7, 2017
Pages: 184
There’s No Heaven….Like Hell
Faced with losing Pandora Productions as well as her best friend Rebecca to the smarmy Paul, savvy film executive Debbie makes a pact with the demon Shaker, agreeing to bind herself to him as his human master in return for killing Paul. When the intended coup goes amiss, resulting in the deaths of both Rebecca and Paul, Debbie finds herself alone at Pandora’s helm, facing a rising tide of corporate enemies led by Paul’s duplicitous son Dante and the behemoth Titan Pictures. Shaker’s backing smoothes the way, solving some problems supernaturally, others through brutal bloodshed, even as he calls into play various preternatural and human allies to assist Debbie.
As the months pass, Debbie’s strong resolve begins to crumble under the weight of her actions, even as she guiltily concedes the pleasure she finds in Shaker’s arms is becoming something more than just affection. Is there hope for a happy ending built on so much evil? Or is Debbie doomed to lose her heart as well as her soul to a demon who has only been waiting for the chance to claim both?
It takes talent on the part of an author to get me rooting for someone who’s decidedly not a ‘good person’. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I would recommend to anyone who likes something a little different in the way of paranormal romance and would enjoy a more mature heroine. Five Stars.

Tara Fox Hall is a writer of consummate skill. I have been following her for years and have never been disappointed.

Excerpt

“So, can I meet him?” Sheila prodded.

“Shaker!” Debbie called loudly.

The demon appeared, inclining his head politely to a gaping Sheila, as if he met Debbie’s friends every night of the week. “I am here, Mistress. And I see you’ve included your good friend this evening. Are we to have a threesome?”

Sheila choked on her drink, as Debbie gave Shaker slitted eyes. “No, we are not doing anything of the sort. But I do have a question for you, Shaker. How does one go about getting a demon?”

“Sharing tales of me, I see,” Shaker said with a lecherous grin. “And the little lady wants a little demon action of her own. It can easily be arranged, Mistress.”

“Wait!” Sheila croaked out. “I didn’t say I wanted a demon of my own!”

“But don’t you?” Debbie said, standing unsteadily and moving to Shaker. She flipped up his loincloth, exposing him to Sheila, who went into a choking spasm again. Debbie lowered Shaker’s loincloth, then put her well-manicured hand on his red-tinged muscular arm. Shaker looked over at her with a sultry look.

All I have to do is tell him what I want and he’ll do it. And God, she wanted him to.

About the Book

She’s a prisoner of the Imperial Forces. He’s a nomad with a private mercenary army. Can a desperate girl’s risky gamble and a fierce warrior’s love turn the tide of war and alter the balance of power in their slice of space?

In a distant corner of the galaxy, Quadrant Five burns in the flames of a deadly war. The Budheya people are one of the worst affected. Once the most advanced civilization in the quadrant, they now struggle under the cruel yoke of Ketaari occupation.

Saakshi
Imprisoned by the Ketaari Imperial Forces, a young Budheya girl is sent to a distant space station to work in an alehouse. For a girl who has known only hardship in her short life, things could be worse. Until an old foe walks into the alehouse.

Zoran
Zoran is Hadari’Kor – notorious across star systems for their prowess in battle. Their fierce reputation allows them to retain their independence, even as others are forced to choose sides in the war. Drawn to a weary-eyed server girl, Zoran is forced to confront age-old traditions and question his role in the war.

The Prisoner & The Mercenary
Alone, friendless and far from home, Saakshi makes a desperate gamble to trust a formidable and enigmatic stranger whose hot gaze haunts her dreams. The fallout from this improbable pact reverberates across space. As a relentless enemy hunts her, Zoran must fight to protect Saakshi through a minefield of shifting alliances. When passion ignites amidst the embers of a smoldering war, will a warrior’s quest for justice bring a mighty Empire to its knees …

Author’s Note : A spirited and resilient girl, a fierce warrior with a conscience, a fiery passion that flares amidst the debris of a deadly war and a love that will alter the fate of an entire quadrant forms the tale of The Mercenary, a standalone story that sets the scene for The War Chronicles – a collection of SciFi Romance & Space Opera tales with romance, swashbuckling adventure & a sprinkling of action.

Excerpt

He swam towards the shore, wading out of the water to where she sat watching him. Saakshi watched her large warrior arise unhurriedly from the tranquil lake, the water spearing off his hard body causing his myriad colorful tattoos to gleam brightly on his gray skin in the light reflected off the plasma torches. He shook his head gracefully, sending an arc of water off his dark hair. The scattered droplets hung over him like a short-lived halo around his large muscled frame. Saakshi stared at him, frozen in place and unable to take her eyes off him. In that moment suspended in time, to the young Budheya girl gazing up in awe at her warrior, it felt as if the Pura herself had sent him for her – her own personal guardian angel charging in when she’d needed him the most.

“Like what you see?” inquired the husky voice she remembered so well from before.
Saakshi flushed, looking away from those molten dark eyes.
He came down gracefully on one knee beside her, gloriously unselfconscious in his nakedness.
“I do, too. Like what I see, that is” he said scratchily, his voice like sandpaper.
He used a large finger to gently nudge her chin until she met his eyes.
“You have me at your feet, tseriya. I hope you will show mercy.”

Lost momentarily in the burning eyes and mesmerized by the husky voice, Saakshi realized dazedly that he seemed to be kneeling before her. She scrambled up with a muffled sob to throw her arms around him, smothering his face and neck with little kisses.
“Tseriya” he asked, a hint of uncertainty in his voice. “Why are you crying?”
“I’m just so happy that you came back” she sobbed into his neck.
“Of course, I came back” he reiterated in some confusion, trying to dislodge her from his neck to meet her eyes. “Why wouldn’t I?”
“I thought you were off doing more important stuff now that I was safe with the Alliance” Saakshi hiccupped into his neck, resisting all his attempts to get her to meet his eyes.
“Tseriya” he cajoled. “I could never stay away from you.”
He cupped the back of her head with one hand.
“Tseriya” he said urgently. “Haven’t I proved already that I cannot stay away from you? That is what I cannot forgive myself for.”

It was the note of despair in his voice that finally got through to Saakshi. She loosened her clasp around his neck to lean back and scan his expression. A callused finger brushed away her tears carefully as they spilled over from her eyes but Saakshi barely noticed the tender gesture.

“Forgive yourself? What do you mean …” she trailed off uncertainly.
He said nothing, but what she saw in the dark eyes had Saakshi straightening her spine.
“You helped a stranger who came to you for assistance. You could have chosen to walk away. Without you, the Unta-Golar …” she stopped mid-sentence, her words cut off by the large finger Zoran laid gently across her lips.
The expression on his handsome face shuttered right before her eyes.
“I’m no hero, Saakshi” he said steadily. “I shamed myself – I took advantage of a young and desperate girl.”

It was Saakshi’s turn to lay a gentle finger on his lips to prevent him from further self-reproach.
“No” she shook her head forcefully. “Nothing happened between us that I did not want. Believe that if you believe nothing else, Zoran Hadari-Begur-Kor.”
She withdrew her finger from his lips. He remained silent but did soften enough to allow her to see the regret and despair in him.
“You came for me every single time” she reiterated a tad desperately. “When no else did.”
Zoran shook his head, clasping her hand to plant a soft kiss in her palm.
“Yes” he acknowledged. “But I also took advantage of you.”
Saakshi shook her head vehemently, desperate to make him believe that she had never felt coerced into an intimate relationship with him.
“You … you loved me like no one else had, Zoran” she whispered, shyness and embarrassment forgotten. “I was drawn to you, even before I went to you. I just … I was too inexperienced to know it.”
His expression twisted subtly at her soft admission. “I was not.”

About the Book

Luke believes he has his life figured out…and then he meets Theo.

It should have been simple—a summer spent with his girlfriend Zara at her family’s holiday cottage in Cornwall. Seventeen-year-old Luke Savage jumps at the chance, envisioning endless hours of sunbathing on the private beach and riding the waves on his beloved surfboard. He isn’t interested in love. Though his rugged good looks and lazy charm mean he can have his pick of girls, he has no intention of falling for anyone.

Nothing prepares Luke for his reaction to Theo, the sensitive Oxford undergraduate who is Zara’s cousin and closest friend. All at once, he is plunged along a path of desire and discovery that has him questioning everything he thought he knew about himself. No one, especially Zara, must find out; what he and Theo have is too new, too fragile. But as the deceit spirals beyond their control, people are bound to get hurt, Luke most of all.

Caught Inside was named a finalist in the 29th Annual Lambda Literary Awards for Best Gay Romance, the 5th Annual Bisexual Book Awards for Best Young Adult Novel, and the 2017 Next Generation Indie Book Awards for Best LGBT Fiction.

Excerpt

Warmth caresses my cheek. I sit up, blinking against the brilliant sunshine, and stretch experimentally. My headache has receded to a faint pulsing, and my stomach remains steady.

Zara glances over at me. “Feeling better?”

“Much.” Beyond the window, hills rise and fall like a pod of humpback whales against the sky, cattle dozing in the fields at their feet. “Where are we?”

“Devon. You’ve been asleep for hours.”

“Seriously?”

“Yup. Didn’t even stir when I stopped for petrol, which reminds me. I bought you something.” Zara indicates a carrier bag at my feet.

I bend to scoop it up. Inside is a bottle of water and a sandwich in a cardboard carton. It’s more than I deserve. I unscrew the cap and gulp half the water in one go. It’s lukewarm and tastes of plastic, but it’s a balm to my parched throat. Thirst quenched, I attack the sandwich. Egg and bacon. My favourite.

“Zara,” I say around a mouthful, “you’re the best.”

“You’re welcome.” She rests a hand on my thigh and gives it a gentle squeeze. “Sorry I was such a bitch.”

“You weren’t.” The corner of my mouth quirks in response to her raised eyebrow. “Well, maybe a bit, but it was my fault. I shouldn’t have drunk so much.”

“So you were out on the piss last night. I knew it.” She slaps my leg, but her eyes are amused.

We fall quiet, the earlier tension evaporated. I finish my sandwich, content to sit back and gaze at the view. Gradually, as we cross the border into Cornwall, the roads become narrower, the signs of civilization fewer and farther between. Towns give way to fishing villages surrounded by woodland and rolling fields. And then I get my first glimpse of the sea. The swell is visible even from this distance, rippling in the afternoon sun. My heart leaps in recognition.

“How long’s Theo been down here?” I ask a while later.

“A couple of months, since he finished uni for the summer.”

I try to imagine burying myself in the countryside for weeks on end, with only the waves and the occasional cow for company. The concept is too alien. Even in the holidays, when Mum’s working and I have the flat to myself, there’s a constant banging and creaking from the residents above and below me, the roar of traffic from the street outside. How might it feel to be really, truly alone?

Zara slows the car to manoeuvre a tight bend. “I think he just wanted to get away for a while. He’s been like that since the breakup, shutting himself away, refusing to talk about it. Don’t bring it up in front of him, will you?”

“What do you think I’m going to say? ‘Nice to meet you, Theo. By the way, sorry about your boyfriend.’”

“I’m serious, Luke. It really messed him up. He hasn’t even talked to me about it. Not yet.”

“Zara, I get it. It’s fine.”

All the same, with the countryside closing around us, the doubts set in. Perhaps Zara’s made a mistake bringing me. If Theo’s as cut-up as she says, he might not be in the mood for company, especially that of some guy he’s never met.

A quarter of an hour later, Zara swings through a gate set in the hedge and onto a gravel driveway. “We’re here.”

I’m allowed only a fleeting glimpse of the cottage before she veers into the garage, its entrance standing open in readiness. She parks beside the only other car, a silver Golf, its scratched body a marked contrast to the Mini’s gleaming paintwork.

Zara kills the engine. Silence descends, a silence more profound than any I’ve ever known. It presses in on my eardrums, a physical force. But for the fact that I can hear myself breathing, I would’ve sworn I’ve gone deaf.

“Well, come on.” Zara reaches for the door handle, her eyes alight. “Come and meet Theo.”

Godhunter
The Godhunter Book 1
by Amy Sumida
Genre: Paranormal RH Romance
 

From witch to Godhunter.

Sometimes a single fact can change a life completely. For Vervain Lavine,
that change came when she learned the truth about the gods: who they

survive, she learned how to track the gods and, even more
importantly, kill them. But now the Godhunter is faced with yet
another life-altering fact: a god who’s on her side.
This is a slow building Reverse Harem (RH) series–multiple men with one
woman. It becomes RH in book four.

Fairy-Struck
Twilight Court Series Book 1
by Amy Sumida
Genre: Urban Fantasy RH Romance
 

From the Award Winning author of The Godhunter Series comes an exciting
new Urban Fantasy series!

Would you like to hear a real fairy tale? A story about the war between us
and them. A war which led to a truce and a truce which led to the
creation of a secret society. There are councils you know nothing
about, councils of fairies and of humans who write laws which govern
us both. Laws you also know nothing about, yet you are held
accountable to them. If you break these laws, the Wild Hunt of Fairy
will come for you, but don’t worry too much, it’s hard to break laws
concerning things you don’t believe in. Fairies tend to break the
truce more than humans and that’s where I come in. I’m part of a
military force which monitors the Fey. When they cross the line we
extinguish their light… permanently. I’m Extinguisher Seren Sloane
and I can tell you a real fairy’s tale, if you’re brave enough to listen.
This is a slow building Reverse Harem series–multiple men with one
woman. The series becomes RH in book 6.

I started writing at the age of sixteen. The first romance I read wasStephanie Laurens’ Devil’s Bride. Since then I have beeninfluenced by dozens of flourishing romance authors and even moredashing and daring rogues. I must say it, but Fifty Shades was not myfirst erotic romance, nor did it influence me to start writing them.If you’ve never read Mary Balogh, Elizabeth Hoyt, Lisa Kleypas,Bertrice Small or A.N. Roquelaure’s Sleeping Beauty trilogy, thenyou’re missing out. Those were my sweet introductions to eroticromance, and boy were they hot.
So here I am, after reading so many wonderful stories, I have too manysinful tales of my own not to share. I like my alphas rough andpossessive, and I have no shame in saying it or writing it. I haddelightfully wicked teachers growing up, their books took me to newworlds and brought me new loves. So, I want to do the same for you. Iwant to indulge my readers in those steamy reads that will send theminto the arms of dangerous alphas and deliciously sexy rogues,without leaving the confines of their nice warm bed. If I am able toentice your inner goddesses, then I have done my job and I amsatisfied.

About the Book

You only thought you knew the story of Beauty and the Beast.

When Bella’s father runs into the woman known as the Beast, she agrees to take his place as a prisoner for the next six months. Plenty of time to get out of her pending marriage to the son of the village’s wealthiest family.

When Bella is sent a list of demands and rules, one rule stood out: DON’T FALL IN LOVE.

That seemed simple enough, for who could fall in love with a Beast?

Excerpt

“You mean she’s real?” gasped Bella. Bella had heard tales of a woman that people in her village called The Beast. Anna Baste lived in a big house just outside of the village. She’d not been seen since the curse that disfigured her with scars. People said she was evil, sadistic, seducing young women, who claim they were tortured. “Yes,” confirmed Maurice. “Very.” Bella, being very curious about the rumors researched what she’d heard. She watched videos of women with other women . Instead of finding it sick and perverted, Bella thought it was erotic, finding herself wishing she could be seduced like that. Recently her friend from school Wendi became involved in a dominant relationship with her boss, Miss Belle. Wendi told her of the things that she was made to do with Miss Belle. Things that made Bella envious, things that she knew her friend well enough to know that Wendi loved every minute of being with Miss Belle. “Is she going to help you?” asked Bella. “Yes, for a price,” Maurice answered. “How much money is she asking for?”“It isn’t money she wants,” sighed Maurice. “She wants you.”
