Release Day Blitz: The Forgotten Ones by Laura Howard

Author: Laura Howard

Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance

 

 

On Sale for .99 cents!!!!

 

Book Synopsis: 

Allison O’Malley’s plan is to go to grad school so she can get a good job and take care of her schizophrenic mother. She has carefully closed herself off from everything else, including a relationship with Ethan, who she’s been in love with for as long as she can remember.

   

What is definitely not part of the plan is the return of her long-lost father, who claims he can bring Allison’s mother back from the dark place her mind has gone. Allison doesn’t trust her father, so why would she believe his stories about a long forgotten Irish people, the Tuatha de Danaan? But truths have a way of revealing themselves. Secrets will eventually surface. And Allison must learn to set aside her plan and work with her father if there is even a small chance it could restore her mother’s sanity.

Laura Howard lives in New   Hampshire with her husband and four children. Her obsession with books began at the age of 6 when she got her first library card. Nancy Drew, Sweet Valley High and other girly novels were routinely devoured in single sittings. Books took a backseat to diapers when she had her first child. It wasn’t until the release of a little novel called Twilight, 8 years later, that she rediscovered her love of fiction. Soon after, her own characters began to make themselves known. The Forgotten Ones is her first published novel.

Sean jogged over with the bat and held it out for me, grinning. “Pick your pitcher, Allie-O.”

 

The smirk on Ethan’s face was a challenge, and I couldn’t resist. “Ethan has the ball, he can pitch to me.”

 

He made a big show of stretching and winding up before he finally tossed the ball at me.

 

I smacked the ball over the pool house, and Sean started shouting and cheering, making me smile. Ethan shook his head, but he was smiling. He clearly thought I would be an easy out.

 

I made it all the way to the final round, kicking Sean and Jeff out of the game. I’d played softball and run track all through school to pad my transcripts.

 

“You gonna let her win, E?” Jeff called, winking at me from the picnic table where he sat drinking a beer.

 

Ethan chuckled, showing off those damn dimples. He looked down at the ball in his hands and back up at me with a grin. “If I do, will you let me take you out?”

 

I snorted, trying to look braver than I felt. “Not a chance.”

 

“Wait a sec. I like this. Let’s make a wager,” he said.

 

The guys were all hooting and hollering at me, my face was no doubt crimson.

 

“What do I get if I win?” I bit my lip, feeling all their eyes on me.

 

“I’m thinking, hang on,” He held up his finger, his brow furrowed in thought. His eyes widened with excitement, and I knew I would regret whatever he had to say.

 

“If I win, I get a kiss.” If it was possible, my cheeks grew even redder. They were all laughing and making cat calls now.

 

“And, if I win?” I looked up at his face.

 

He looked at me for a second, considering. “If you win, I won’t ever ask you out again.”

 

This earned a chorus of “Yeah, right” and “No way” from the guys.

 

My mouth fell open, I had not been expecting that, but his face was sober. The laughing around us fell away for a second, and I could only stare at him feeling the color drain from my face. His expression remained solemn, and he met my gaze head on.

 

I nodded stiffly, and swallowed. “All right.”

 

His grin came back in full force. “Oh, and Al?”

 

I raised my eyebrows at him.

 

“I won’t lose.”

                                               

 

                         

Review: Broken by Sandra Love

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Broken (Broken Wings Book 1)
 
Cordelia Rose has a horrible life. She gets bullied by students at school, beaten by her father, practically abandoned by her mother, and wants to end her life and suffering. But when some strange things start to happen, she questions whether or not she has a purpose in this life.

Then she meets a brother and sister that means more to her than she realizes. They are her protectors, and her kindred spirits. Just like her, they are bruised and broken, though for different reasons.

When she finally discovers the truth of her existence, her mind is jumbled with everything She has to take in; not to mention the battle she has to fight inside and out.

My Review:
4 out of 5 stars

Teaser:

He searched her electric blue eyes for some hint of the attraction he had seen earlier. They still glowed more than they should, but he didn’t see any of look he sought. Instead, he saw his own anger filled face and red glowing eyes.
He saw a monster.
His hands dropped to his sides, as he shook his head. “I’ll never bother you again.”
She cried, struggling with breath when she spoke, “It was you outside of my house?”
He didn’t move, frightened of what he could do to her. She was so small and fragile and he feared loving her to death.
Bravely and unexpectedly, she stepped closer for a moment, lifting his face. Black tears streamed her cheeks but she looked into his eyes hard.
It left him, the blood lust. She took it all away, like she sucked it from him instead of him sucking from her.
Her face was confusing, conflicted and scared, but there was something else he didn’t know how to read.
Delicately, she ran her hand down his cheek. “I will keep your secret and I wont forget you, not even if I wanted to.” She turned and walked from the room, turning her back on him like she trusted what she saw in his eyes.
He clenched his jaw, his whole body really. He fought the urge to follow her out into the dark night. He hated the look he had seen on her face, he never wanted to force that look again.
Instead, he stood there, vibrating with anger and self-hatred. Never should he have confessed. He should have spent the time that he had with her, waiting for the Michaels to divulge his little secret. They would have ousted themselves at the same moment, so maybe they would have forgone the explanation of the town’s secrets. But even if they had told her, at least he might have had more time with her.
A sound caught his ears, it was dripping. He looked down to see droplets of blood dripping from his clenched hands to the hard wood floors. He released his grip, turning and looking back at the portrait of his family.

**Author Bio**
I am not going to talk in the third person. It feels weird.
I am a Bestselling author of Paranormal Romance, Post Apocalyptic, Contemporary, Romance, and Fantasy novels. I write a lot of books and jump Genres all the time. Mostly because I think I have Writers ADD, I like to call it WADD. It might be a real thing.

I write YA some of the time but mostly New Adult, my books have sexual content (Heck yes) and Swearing. You have been warned. Now enjoy!

I have a beagle named Buster, a husband who I force to read everything I write and two girls who want so badly to be a character in my books. And not in that order.

I am mid thirties so be prepared for the chick lit novel this year. I am calling it my Ode to my Midlife Crisis. I’m kidding. It’s actually called The Single Lady Spy Series and it is an adult romantic-thriller series. The first book, The End of Me is due out April of 2013(out now!). It is a sexy and fresh series with the lightest touch of erotic naughtiness.
I have been writing since I was old enough to lie. So for some time. If you’re wondering about the hat, it’s my ‘Hey I’m Canadian Toque’

Welcome to my world. Please enjoy the ride. If you would like to reach me for whatever reason, please visit me at my facebook page – facebook.com/TaraBrownAuthor. You can also email me at tarabrownauthor@hotmail.com
Thanks for checking me out and I hope you got lost in something I wrote or it made you so MAD/HAPPY/SAD/BLISSFUL/TURNED ON/ANGRY/EXCITED/FRIGHTENED/HORRIFIED that you couldn’t believe it.

Have a great day!!!
