Taming The Ringmaster #review

Taming The Ringmaster (Her Freaks Book 2) by Erin O’Kane & K.A. Knight

°

°

After the bombs, the world changed. Alcide’s Circus is proof of that. Freaks, outcasts, abominations, they have been called it all, but they found freedom within the big top to embrace themselves and each other. They have never been slaves—until now.

Last Stop is a mecca in a destroyed world, filled with riches and treasures from the times before, yet under the decadent, utopian façade hides a darker underbelly, and when the circus rolls into town, things start to get interesting.

Fate has its cruel eyes set on Rhea, and will test everything she thought she knew, not only about herself but her family as well. Sometimes you have to lose everything to find the truth about who you are, and what you are capable of.

When the Circus falls and the freaks are forced to fight for their lives in the dust, will there be anyone left to pick up the pieces?

OHMYGODS this book took me on an emotional rollercoaster. At one point in the book I was crying and was ready to fly to England and kick both authors butts, but they redeemed themselves in the end of the book. I felt emotional wrung out after that story, now I’m going to be suffering from a banging book hangover.
This book goes from ashes of book one into a roaring fire. Rhea and her men are pushed to their absolute limits when they go to the city. Deceit lies around every corner and Rhea will have to dig deep to overcome her fears. She will discover new and amazing sides of her powers.
Let’s not forget the new character that will be introduced *squeeeee* and the scorching hot heat level *fanning mysel* 🔥🔥🔥
I highly recommend you one-click this amazing series and fall in love with the characters as I have. You won’t be disappointed.

😈 Hunted by dark spirits, she’s running out of options… At first glance, she probably seemed like any woman in her prime – Full of life, fearless, and dances like everyone’s watching. Except no one is because she’s dead. Worse than dead, she’s invisible. No one can see, hear, or feel her and who can live dead like that? Oh, by the way, she also has no idea who she is, how she died, or who killed her.

As if that’s not bad enough, dark spirits are hunting her. Knowing she can’t fight them off forever, she’s running out of options and is determined to do whatever it takes to survive.

Enter Jack, with his killer smile and wicked sharp blades.

He can see her. Touch her. And kisses like a sinner with no interest in finding salvation.

When Jack offers her a chance of a lifetime, she’s all too eager to accept his help and follow him home. What she finds when they go through his front door defies everything she thought life was about. He isn’t just her savior. He’s something far more dangerous.

And he doesn’t live alone.

Can she trust her instincts and navigate through the fog of her past to find out what happened to her? If so, how does Jack play a role in her life… and death?

🔥 Must read series in order; series is written in trilogy sets, each trilogy focuses on a different pack and their romance Multi POVs, fast-burn, emotional, and intense with murder, mystery and a healthy dose of mayhem. And yeah, they run in packs. All the Hell Hounds do.🔥

😈 Like, share, and howl – more of these devilish deals are coming. Happy reading, everyone! 🖤

Pre-order/Cover reveal/blurb reveal of Beloved by Poppy Woods.

Blurb:

The world bleeds as noble vampire families war amongst themselves. The Valentine and Bordeaux clans have fought for centuries over the right to rule. Until an opportunity to merge the two sides is born.

Sabine Bordeaux is destined to marry the Valentine heir, something she’s known since birth. Their union will end the bloodshed once and for all. She knows her duty . . .

. . . and wants nothing to do with it.

She never expected three men, shrouded in mystery, to answer her prayers. Whisked away to an island she’s only heard about in fairy tales, at the mercy of the very Gods she prayed to for a reprieve, secrets come to light that leave Sabine lost and confused.

She wanted to escape her duty . . .

She just never knew how much she’d bleed for it.

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m 26 years old, and I’m a full-time author. I have a very cute dog who thinks he’s a person and a husband who has listened to me talk through the plots of every book I’ve ever written. He’s my sounding board, and even though he’s not really much of a romance reader in general, he reads all of my books. When I’m not writing, I like to spend time with my husband and our puppy, drink wine, and binge Netflix shows (sometimes all at the same time!). I also love to travel. Going new places and seeing new things provides so much of the inspiration for my writing, and it’s my favorite way to spark my creative juices. I loooove angst in the books I read, but a lot of my favorite TV shows are comedies. My favorite genre to read is reverse harem. I discovered it several years ago and have been hooked ever since.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Yes, which makes me so very grateful that this became my job! I’ve always loved writing. In school, I used to take any opportunity I could to turn a project or assignment into a chance to tell a story.
Once I got out of college, I started writing more seriously, but it took a while for me to take the plunge and decide to publish. I’m so glad I did, because it’s been really life-changing. I have so many stories bouncing around in my head, and being able to put them down and share them with people is so incredible. I don’t think there was one single ‘ah ha’ moment that made me decide to jump in. It was more of a slow build, a dawning realization that there was nothing else I wanted to do as much as write!

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I have three complete series out now, and I’m currently working on two more, with a couple of others floating around in my head in the ‘idea stage’. My most recently completed series is Fallen University, and the seed of inspiration for that one was the question of whether the traditional ‘villains’ of a story could become the heroes instead. At Fallen University, demons who have pledge to help humanity train to protect the world from other demons who have evil intentions. It’s a fast-burn RH with lots of steam, snark, and action, and I had so much fun writing it!

°

°

What are you working on now?

I have two projects. One hasn’t been announced yet, but the other is a dark reverse harem series called Ruthless Games. The first book, Sweet Obsession, will release in early 2020.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

My biggest quirk is that I like to write for loooong stretches. A lot of my writer friends to sprints, where they write in short bursts, but I like to sit at my computer with as few interruptions as possible and just go. The longer I write, the more it plays like a movie in my head, and i just feel like I’mchanneling the characters and letting them flow through me.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

To keep writing! And to travel more.

°

°

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

First, if you want to write, then do it!! It sometimes still amazes me that I can write down the stories in my heart and then put them out in the world so easily, but in the digital age, there’s really nothing to stop you! So if you have a story you want to share, don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t or that there isn’t room for your story. You can. And there is. ❤

And second, find your tribe! Find the people who want to build you up when others tear you down and keep the good ones close. It can definitely be a hard journey to succeed as a writer, and having people you can trust in your corner makes all the difference. I’m so lucky I had people who supported me at the beginning, it literally made all the difference.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I would like to tell my readers “thank you!” Your love and support has meant the entire world to me, and is really the reason I’m still here publishing. i’m so excited to be looking head to what the next year holds and planning my next releases.

°

Have you always wanted to become and author?

Yes, I have. I have loved reading since I learned and actually started writing for Mills and Boon. Despite the fact that they asked for a synopsis of four of my stories I never got accepted for publication. Then I was too busy being a mum, it wasn’t until my children were older that I started to write again. Joining a writing group was the catalyst that finally put me on my publishing journey. I wish I had started when I was younger but the time wasn’t right. Now that I no longer work, I am throwing myself into my writing and absolutely loving it.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My writing group tasked us with coming up with a post-apocalyptic story and my muse ran with this idea. Dragons have always been my favourite supernatural creature so it made absolute sense that the stories would contain them. I started with a vague idea outline of the story and as I wrote, it grew from there. I didn’t start with the idea of it being a trilogy but I have really enjoyed writing about the dragon clans and their Innamorata’s.

°

°

What are you working on now?

Well I can’t say too much as it is a work in progress but it has nothing to do with dragons. Although I am sad The Dragons Clan Series has come to an end, I am also glad to be writing about something else. It is paranormal and if it is liked could turn into a duology. I am very excited as it is something different. Here is a teaser with a huge clue!

°

°

Of course, my muse is already thinking about the next book and I will be returning to dragons!

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I have changed a room in my house into my ‘writing room’ this helps me to be disciplined, and because everything is set up and ready, I have no excuse not to write. I like to listen to the radio while I write and couldn’t function properly if I didn’t have a window to gaze out of when I’m stuck for a word or just need a break.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I really hope that readers will continue to like my stories so I can keep on writing. I knew I would love the process of making up a story but not how much. It brings me great joy to sit down and let the words flow, especially when the characters take over and unexpected things start to happen. I want to be a writer for as long as people will read my stories.

°

°

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

You need to be determined. For me the easiest and most enjoyable part of the whole process is writing the first draft. When the rewrites start, the editing and the actual publishing that’s when the determination comes in. Make sure you find a good editor who you connect with, also a book cover artist who can bring to life your vision for the cover. Find people you can trust to read your story and give you good advice and encouragement, especially in the first draft. Always remember that all authors at some point hate what they have written, and doubt that they are capable of writing a sentence, let alone a novel!

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Without the readers and the people in my group I wouldn’t be here. Their support and enthusiasm mean everything and I can’t thank them enough. I hope they will continue with me on my journey as I strive to improve, and write stories that they will hopefully embrace and enjoy.

Please come and stalk me if you want to know more, it is always wonderful to have new members.

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hey, thanks for having me. My pen name is Crystal North and I’m 32, but I don’t feel a day older than 21 – well, until I have to exercise or bend or something and then it’s a whole other story!

I’m from the U.K. and I live in the Devonshire countryside but not too far from the sea, which I think is the best of both worlds. I absolutely love it and I wouldn’t swap it for anywhere else in the UK (although I would love to live abroad).

I have a BA Hons degree in English Language and English Literature, and I also have a PGCE in English alongside ten years secondary school teaching experience, which is what I’m currently doing. I’m married to my sister’s husband’s brother (it’s not as weird as it sounds, but I like messing with people!) We have a baby boy who is fifteen months old, and a furbaby puppy. Writing is very much a huge part of my life, but I have to squeeze it in around all of that other craziness!

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

It sounds cliché but I have always written, so I consider myself a writer. When I was small I used to make up stories and as a teenager I wrote lyrics, stories, poetry and an entire book which I’m relieved to say will never see the light of day because it’s saved on a floppy disk somewhere, never to be recovered. I never planned to be an ‘author’ and I still consider myself to be a person who just happens to write. Maybe when I have more books out I’ll consider myself an actual author? Who knows!

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Hehehe which one? I’ll tell you a little about the inspiration for my Goddess series that I’m working on. It’s set in the valley of a place in North Devon that I love to visit, and it’s completely inspired by nature, the elements, crystals and magic – all things that are dear to me. I’m so excited about this series but it’s a long way off being done because I want it to be perfect!

°

°

What are you working on now?

I have so many works on the go. I’m obviously working on the sequel to Vengeance, which is called Atonement. I’m finishing off my Christmas release. Then I have a massive calendar of releases for 2020 which includes two collaborative series / anthologies that I’m super excited about (something for Valentine’s Day and later in the year a time travel RH novel as part of a collaboration series). I’m going to be busy!

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Not really, but I do write entirely on my phone, so that’s pretty unusual. Vengeance was a big book too, so I feel like it was an additional achievement. I work best under pressure and working to a deadline and seem to do crazy things like wake up in the morning with an idea for a book, contact my cover designer and ask her to make me something, and then commit to writing and publishing in under 7 days. I’m crazy! I don’t know how my team put up with me to be honest!

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope that I can grow my following and continue to share my work with my fans. I would love to have more people read and review my works from around the globe, and the dream is to just keep being inspired enough to produce new works. At the moment, that’s not a problem, but I’d love to have the time to get every idea down on paper!

°

°

Do you have any advice for new authors in the publishing world?

Never read a negative review (says she!). You can’t be everything to everyone, but if you do you, and are your own unapologetic authentic self, you will find your tribe and your followers. What we do isn’t for everyone, but our fans love it, and that should be good enough for us!

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

So much! Where to start? Thank you so much for reading and loving my work. They’re truly labours of love for me, so the fact that you like them so much too means a lot to me! Thank you for taking the time to review, promote and recommend my work – that means more to authors than you’ll ever realise! And finally, thank you so much for your patience, support and encouragement while waiting for the next one!

#FREE – Tattoos & Cupcakes by Everly Taylor

Tattoos and Cupcakes (Amulet of Queens Book 1)

°

WHEN THE PRICE IS ASKED, WHAT IS TOO HIGH?

Little did I know my life would change the day that boner stared me in the face. Of course, with my amazing social skills I had ruined that one, and thankfully would never have to see him or his friend again.

My life didn’t work that way though, and I had to face my embarrassment when they came hurdling back, full force.

I wasn’t just an orphan like I had always thought I was, I was so much more. And the necklace I carried with me since the orphanage was some highly sought after voodoo shit.

To top it off the men I had the hots for were vampires, and not the Count Dracula kind either. They were the sexy stripper kind that made me want to climb their poles.

Now I had to figure out where I fit into everything, and if risking my heart and my life was worth it. If I was willing to pay the price that this amulet asked of me to save vampire kind.

Warning: Tattoos and Cupcakes is a fast paced, WhyChoose romance. Intended for readers 18+.

Sexy times await in these pages and is not for the faint of heart.

This is Book One in the Amulet of Queen Series

Tell us a bit about yourself

This question always makes me scramble to find things interesting about me. lol. so, I’m an author and I write in multiple genres including, but not limited to, Dark Fantasy, Steampunk, and Paranormal. I’m a mom to a crazy active toddler boy and a Great Dane. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing and Marketing. When I’m not writing, I’m usually doing other things like designing, painting, crafting, and even doing those fancy designer cookies when I feel up to the task. lol. Umm, I’m also a certified scuba diver and I got to dive with sharks before which was awesome.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve always been a writer but I never understood I could pursue writing as a career until I started college. I always wanted to be an author, but I never had it up there as what I was gonna pursue. Would you believe my first major was zoology? lol. Eventually, I got smart and realized I wasn’t chasing my dreams and I dove in head first.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

So my current one is my fairytale retellings. Vicious as a Darling is book 1 in the Daughters of Neverland series, which is a spin off of the Sons of Wonderland series. I’ve always been a fairytale retelling fan, especially of the darker spins. I love horror so the idea was to thread horror elements into the story while it could still be considered Romance. And so these Horror Romance fairytale twists were born. 😀 For Neverland, I wanted to do something completely different from anything I’ve seen before (there are so many retellings) and I think everyone is really gonna love the horror twist on everything.

°

°

What are you working on now?

Right now, in addition to working on Vicious as a Darling, I’m also working on a sequel to my Steampunk RH, Clockwork Butterfly. It was meant to be a standalone but due to popular demand, Vic and her guys are getting another adventure. I’m also working on a new steampunk series that’s menage. The Prequel, Gears of Winter, released in an Anthology at the beginning of November. Poppy Woods and I are also working on a secret project I think everyone will love.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I’m not sure if I have any unusual quirks. My playlists might be considered that I guess. For every book I write, I have a specific playlist for it. But I’m a fan of instrumental music. So I have a lot of battle and war drum music in my playlists. My favorite is Audiomachine! They produce some kickass stuff. ::whispers:: I listen to it at full volume in my car with the windows down and I get the best looks when they hear war drums.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I think the hope is to always take my passion and turn it into something that not only supports my family, but that I can show my son one day that I achieved my dreams. Right now, my next goal is to be able to claim International Bestseller. I also just want to keep writing things I love.

°

°

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

There are three important things when publishing your first book. Cover, Blurb, and editing. Without a good cover, people might not look at your book. We’re all guilty of judging them by the covers and a great one will sell the book easier. If the blurb doesn’t catch their attention next, they might bypass it. If you’re not great at blurbs, there are services that will help or even asking other authors or friends for advice is fantastic. And never skimp on editing. It’s a chunk of change but it’s worth it to put out a quality book rather than having reviews come in claiming the editing was bad or to get quality notices from amazon. If you do those three things, readers will definitely want to read your story and will come back for more.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Without my readers, I wouldn’t be anywhere near where I am. I was so worried when I started publishing that I was too weird, that my stories were too different, and y’all embraced me so hard and have never let me go. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sticking around, for trying new worlds I write, for reviewing the books when they come out. Because of you, I able to keep doing what I love, and that makes me so happy. Let’s all stay a little mad, and a whole lot of awesome!

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m a 40ish y.o. fangirl that has found a new way to express myself outside of fandom. At home, I’m happily married to my high-school sweetheart, with two rambunctious boys to keep me busy. I own my own medical business.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

No. I’ve always written, but I had no thoughts about producing original fiction/novels until a couple years ago. My sister encouraged me. It started as a few smutty scenes for fun because I couldn’t find anything to read that I really wanted in between waits for my favourite series.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My work in mental health inspired Victory Lap. I rarely see it addressed from the perspective of the family members of someone with a serious mental illness. The impact is huge. I wanted to tackle this complicated subject, all the feelings the family members experience, but may not always feel comfortable expressing in front of others. This is the ‘behind closed doors’ experience as we dip frequently into the thoughts of the MFC, Tess, and hear what she’s really thinking. The chaos of the first scene captures how off-balanced Tess truly feels as she visits the psychiatric hospital her mother has been involuntarily admitted.

°

°

What are you working on now?

Duplicity, the second book in the Victory Lap series is going out ASAP. I’m also working on my last open series, Maeren. The next book is ‘Witch Darkness Follows’ and should be out around Christmas. There are more books and a spinoff planned. I’m also re-editing all of my past books for better formatting and to prepare for paperbacks. I’ll be attending my first signing this summer at Literary Love Savannah July 2020.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I bounce between books. It helps me to be able to jump from series to series if I get stuck one one book.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

Writing? Keep enjoying it. The world? Stop the next medical epidemic. (it’s going to be a flu-like illness) Stop world hunger through genomic advances. Stop violence, but especially gun traumas. Cure fucking cancer. Hey, I’m a doctor. We dream big. I also would like to see my boys grow up healthy and happy. I don’t want to miss a moment, even if I have to sacrifice some of my work-life goals.

°

°

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

Build your support team. I found Goodreads less than useful. Facebook groups are where you will get your betas, readers, and other support, such as editors and covers. Self-publishing is where it is at with KDP. Please, keep enjoying your writing. Put yourself first.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Hey there, I wrote a book. Come, read it. I want to talk books all night long.
