Moirai by Ruth Silver Tour Stop!!!

Moirai by Ruth Silver (Book 2)
Genre: Young Adult, Dystopian, Science-Fiction
Olivia has been on the run from the government of Cabal since the marriage ceremony. Finally settling in and finding herself a place to call home, in Shadow, Olivia and Joshua are preparing for the uprising that they and the rebel alliance have been planning for months.

With new abilities and special talents, from Mindonsiphan, Olivia learns that she can do more than most ordinary eighteen year olds. Learning both to hide and perfect her skills will be one of the biggest challenges she'll be forced to face.

A constant rollercoaster of emotion and adventure await Olivia and Joshua, as they embark on a journey to the rebel city of Torv, and what was once home, Genesis.


“He wants her thrown in the dumpster.” I grimaced as I approached the mattress. “Help me.” I gestured towards the body. “I can't carry her on my own.” Even if I could, I wasn't doing this alone.

“I'm not throwing her away like garbage!” Lisa crossed her arms. “Think of something else, Jacqueline.”

“We could grab some wood, wrap her body, and burn her.” I glanced around the small bedroom. It was mostly empty, except for the dresser against the wall. There were no trinkets, no signs of another life outside of Genesis. I couldn't help but wonder if anyone missed her from back home.

“How are we going to do that without getting caught?” Lisa asked.

“I don't know. Craynor will know we did it.” We were the ones that were told to throw the body away.
“We could find a place in the far end of the lot and bury her.”

Lisa frowned. “No, I like the idea of burning her body. We'd be making a statement. Anita would have approved.”

“If we get caught, we'll be killed,” I reminded her. So much for staying out of trouble.

“He's killing his servants. You don't think that demands attention?” Lisa huffed. “I would have liked to know what I was getting involved in before I worked here.”

“It wasn't like you had a choice.” I reminded her bitterly. That was what we were fighting for: our freedom to make choices. Whether they were right or wrong, they were our choices to make.

“Even so,” Lisa scoffed, “she deserves more than being thrown away like a piece of trash.”

Footsteps clomped through the hallway, just outside the door. “Well whatever we decide, we need to do it fast.”

In the future Dystopian society of Cabal, the government instills equality for all and offers its citizens the perfect system. There is food, shelter and jobs for everyone. The one requirement is to follow the rules without question, including the government's match in marriage and "The Day of the Chosen", a lottery that randomly selects families to conceive children as natural means hasn't existed in generations. Following her eighteenth birthday, Olivia Parker accepts her requirement to marry her childhood best friend, Joshua Warren, and is eager to start her work assignment and new life when it all comes abruptly to an end as she's arrested and thrown in prison. The only crime committed, her existence. Olivia is unlike the rest of the world born not from "The Day of the Chosen." The truth haunts the government and puts her life in grave danger as one simple fact would destroy the perfect system. 

With Joshua's help, Olivia breaks free of prison and is forced on the run. Together they set out to find the promised rebel town in search of a new home and new life together. Their situation seems less than promising as they reach the town of Haven. New rules and customs must be adhered to in order to stay. Leaving would mean most certain death in the large expanse of the Gravelands. Time is running out as the government mounts an attack to destroy Olivia and bury her secret with her. Thrown into a world unlike their own, they must quickly adapt to survive.

In Your Dreams by Gina Ardito

In Your Dreams By Gina Ardito

What sacrifice is too dear when the reward is eternal love?

Disillusioned Afterlife bounty hunter, Sean Martino, is transferred to the Probation Department, where he counsels recent suicide attempters by sending them subliminal messages while they're asleep. But he's unprepared to match wits with former child star, Isabelle Fichetti.

It's not every day a woman gets to date a dead man. Although Sean's appearance in her life isn't exactly a dream-come-true for Isabelle, she likes having him around for scintillating conversation and trips to faraway places--all while never leaving her bed. Still, after years of abuse and abandonment, and with no rosy future to look forward to, she's not about to give up on her plan to kill herself just because he asks. 

After breaking the rules one too many times, Sean is cut off from all contact with Isabelle, but not before providing her with a reason to live. Now, she'll choose the path her future takes and confront her greatest fear. Alone. 

Unless Sean can find a way to fight for her from the other side...

Omw, I have never been a fan of sci-fi...well i love harry potter lol, anywho In Her Dreams follows Isabelle, while some people would assume a former child star is living the life... as always the grass isnt always greener on the other side. Bella is at a point in her life where living Isnt an option, shes over the many downs shes experience. Enter Sean, a dream changer who starts with a job and ends with a dream.
The story breaks my heart and heals it all over again. I got strength from Belle! Shes such a strong person thought she doesnt see it in herself. I was pleasently surprised with how engaging Gina writing was in a field i wasnt a fan of. I was able to read book two without reading book one. Read it and join the rollercoaster of Belle and Sean!!!

Amazon: GoodReads: 

I sing all the time. I sing in the car. In the shower. While I'm grocery shopping. And I headbop while I sing. When I'm not singing, I talk to myself. Just ignore me and move on. (i sooooo sing all the time, and not well ROCK ON G) You get used to it after a while.
I don't eat my vegetables. Seriously. I'd rather have a cookie.
I'm extremely fair-skinned and could burn under a 60-watt light bulb.
I can't sleep without background noise. If it's too dark and too quiet, all I have are my thoughts. And even *I* don't want to be alone with my thoughts.
Don't ask me to Zumba, line dance, or march in the parade. I have absolutely no rhythm.
Regrets. I have more than a few.
My favorite activity is sleep. I don't clock a lot of hours, but I powernap like a Persian cat and rejuvenate within ten minutes.
I consider shopping and dining out excellent therapy for anything wrong in my life.
My feet are always cold. Always. My husband claims it's because I'm an alien sent to Earth to destroy him. (He might be right about that.)
Coming to my house for a visit? Unless you've given me plenty of advance notice, be prepared. My floor will not be vacuumed, there will be dishes in my sink, and I only make my bed when I change the sheets once a week (I'm climbing back into it ASAP. Why make it?) Housecleaning is not high on my priority list. Okay, to be totally honest, it's not on the list at all.
I can resist anything...except ice cream.
Since this is our first date, I figure I've revealed enough secrets for now. But if you've read this bio and think I might be the author for you, pick up one of my books or stalk my website: and my personal blog:

Word Count: 40,000

Phoenix—a dark, vast ruin, speckled with sporadic rays of light pushing its way through the dark, dense clouds. Adam and Elliot wander the collapsed city for days before taking shelter at the nearly-standing Arrowhead hospital. Their days are filled with hopes of rescue and a deep need for emotional and mental closeness, until a harsh reality take over their thoughts—their food and supplies are dwindling, and they are in desperate need of assistance and reprieve.

They're forced to return to the devastation they narrowly escaped … the hellish compound, also known as Refuge Inc.

This time, armed with a handgun containing four bullets and a dangerous plan, they make their way across the devastated city and back to the compound. Adam's determined to do whatever he must to survive, even allowing grief-stricken Elliot to take the lead and make some of the most life-changing decisions they would ever have to make.

Will they win their final fight for survival?

Elliot whimpered, breaking the silence. Adam glanced over. Elliot’s bare shoulder seemed to tremble in the barely-there moonlight. Adam gently pulled the sheet up and over Elliot’s arm. Still, Elliot trembled and groaned, “No, no, no.”

Was he dreaming? A nightmare?

Adam rolled over, pressing his chest to Elliot’s back. He placed a comforting hand on Elliot’s shoulder and he shrugged and jumped as if startled. He turned to look into Adam’s eyes. “What? What happened?”

Adam shook his head. “Were you dreaming? You sounded … scared.”

Elliot turned away, keeping his back to Adam. “I might’ve been dreaming but I’m not scared.”

“It’s okay if you’re…”

“I’m not scared,” Elliot repeated, talking away from him. “I’m a big boy, Adam.”

He knew Elliot couldn’t see him, but he nodded anyway. He rubbed Elliot’s shoulder to remind Elliot that he was there if needed. He gingerly glided his fingertips along the curve of Elliot’s shoulder and toward the dip of his neck. They traveled along the slope of Elliot’s long neck and up behind his ear, softly grazing the skin, then back down again.

Adam panted. He tried to control his breathing and his racing heartbeat but couldn’t. Elliot was bliss on his fingertips, and Adam’s body was involuntarily reacting. Heat radiated from Elliot’s skin and lingered on his palm as he caressed Elliot’s arm. Did his touch tell Elliot all he wished to say but couldn’t verbalize?

Without warning, Elliot quickly rolled to face Adam and grabbed the collar of his shirt, pulling Adam against him and crushing their lips together. He closed his eyes and savored the sweet taste of Elliot’s tongue as the wet muscle slithered between his lips.

“I can’t stand not touching you,” Elliot whispered in the kiss. With one hand, he caressed Adam’s waist, his abdominal muscles, and then glided his palm over Adam’s erection which strained against his pants. “I dream about it. Touching you.” Elliot’s breath caught when Adam’s did as Elliot’s palm slid over his hardened length. “I remember it.” Elliot gently nipped Adam’s bottom lip with his teeth, taking the lead. “I can’t forget it. I don’t want to forget.” Adam sighed and willfully surrendered control.

Out of nowhere, commotion in the distance startled them. Adam broke their kiss and sat straight up, his gaze fixed on nothing in particular beyond the broken window. “Hear that?”

“Yeah, I heard it,” Elliot whispered. “What do you think it is?”

“Don’t know.” Adam crawled off of their temporary mattress and to his satchel to retrieve the handgun. “Listen.”

A few seconds went by when commotion cut through the silence again, reminding Adam of rummaging. Was it coming from the nearby structures?

The author of several books of fiction and fiction with spice, I reside in Queen Creek, Arizona, with my husband, three daughters, and a wild beast I call my imagination.

I’m known for writing erotic romance, mostly in the gay and ménage categories, and recently plunged into writing deep, dark romantic sci-fi with my post-apocalyptic and dystopian series, Refuge Inc.

Rex intends to own and drive his own car, but that will cost him millions up front. Last season was a disaster, thanks to a nasty break up, but it taught him a lesson and helped sharpen his focus on what he needed to do: Win every race. And stay away from pretty girls.

Gail "Jimmy" James is the first female NASCAR mechanic. As if competing in a man's world isn't tough enough, her bombshell figure bellies her genius IQ, and the pit is no place for either. Nothing Jimmy knew about Rex Henderson the driver prepared her for Rex Henderson the man. But Jimmy has no time to dwell on her feelings as strange mechanical problems curse Rex's car. Whether sabotage or her own mistakes, Jimmy must stay one step ahead of trouble if she's going to keep her job, and keep her driver alive...

Tears of Tess Tour Blog

Title: Tears of Tess
Author: Pepper Winters
Genre: Erotic/Dark Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 6, 2013
Tour Organized by: As the Pages Turn

A New Adult Dark Contemporary Romance, not suitable for people sensitive to grief, slavery, and nonconsensual sex. A story about finding love in the strangest of places, a will of iron that grows from necessity, and forgiveness that may not be enough.

“My life was complete. Happy, content, everything neat and perfect.
Then it all changed.
I was sold.”

Tess Snow has everything she ever wanted: one more semester before a career in property development, a loving boyfriend, and a future dazzling bright with possibility. 

For their two year anniversary, Brax surprises Tess with a romantic trip to Mexico. Sandy beaches, delicious cocktails, and soul-connecting sex set the mood for a wonderful holiday. With a full heart, and looking forward to a passion filled week, Tess is on top of the world.

But lusty paradise is shattered.

Kidnapped. Drugged. Stolen. Tess is forced into a world full of darkness and terror. 

Captive and alone with no savior, no lover, no faith, no future, Tess evolves from terrified girl to fierce fighter. But no matter her strength, it can’t save her from the horror of being sold.

Can Brax find Tess before she’s broken and ruined, or will Tess’s new owner change her life forever?

I always like to believe I don’t have a bias-ness when it comes to my reading choices. Sometimes I’m geared more to one book than another. 
Tears of Tess I DID NOT expect to like, reviewing Tears of Tess by Pepper Winter was my way to branch outside of my norm and broaden my horizon so to say. When you read the synopsis you already get a feel of how dark Tears is, trust me…it gets darker. Rape, kidnapped, beaten and abuse are just a few words that describe a small part of this amazing book.

Ms. Winter took me to a world I have no understanding about and helped me understand. From the start, I felt I knew who Tess is, ive never walked in her shoes nor experienced her pain in my own life but through the words written I was Tess, I felt her pain, loneliness, confusion and joy. Tess and her boyfriend of two years go on a romantic vacation, from exploring the city both of their lives get turned around. As Tess begins a journey she was forced to take, you see her build up her inner strength. Man, I have no idea how I would have been Tess in this situation. A part of my heart broke for Tess, the girls with her and most of all the hundreds of girls and woman around the world that this happens to daily. The endurance, mental and physical strength a victim must gather to make it by every second is one I hope I have but pray I never have to find out the way Tess does.

As Tessie starts to leave Tess Enslave appears. She’s the women you’ve seen glimpse off throughout the book. The strong and fierce person whose gone thru many trials and tribulations but comes out strong. As Tess story and journey continue Q comes into her life. Q has his demons and Tess might be able to help him fight it. Together Tess must decide, who she is, and what she wants! 

I tore through this book, constantly feeding the addiction Pepper created by wanting more, once I finished the book….i went back and reread it again. It was raw, loving, heartbreaking, empowering, dirty, rough, tender and amazing all wrapped together. 

No matter what kind of books you life, I recommend reading Tears of Tess….it will open up your views on many issues but most of all it’ll open up your heart to this lovely lady….Named Tess!
