From Goodreads:
Vladimir’s Academy isn’t just any boarding school—it’s a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They’ve been on the run, but now they’re being dragged back to St. Vladimir’s—the very place where they’re most in danger. . . .
Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy’s ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi—the world’s fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever…

On The Cover (3)


On The Cover is a feature I am going to do every Friday, Where I pick one book cover that sticks out, is really interesting or just plain beautiful. I think the cover of a book is very important, it’s the first thing a person sees, and some of the time it’s the reason why a person will pick a book up and read the back. I will just pick a book that catches my eye from throughout the week. Feel free to share with me your favourite book covers.

From Goodreads:

Set in the day after tomorrow, Future King brings to life the legend that King Arthur will return from Avalon when England needs him.

Paperback, 308 pages
Published August 30th 2011 by CreateSpace 
Future King is a very interesting read, it is superbly written and the plot-line has plenty of twists and turns. I really did enjoy reading Future King, special thanks to Larry Pontius for sending me over a review copy.
The storyline brings an old legend (which is very real) into the modern day world, which I think is genius. The legend says ‘When England needs him most King Arthur will return from Avalon.’ Well England is definitely in a crisis, King Charles refuses prime minster Saxton, when he asks him to sign The Emergency Powers Act, from then things go downhill for the royal family. 
Saxton has all the military and lots of important people in his pocket, so together they they set their previously discussed plan into motion.… Read more >>>

A Little Bit About The Author

I’m writing romance the way I like it–hot with a touch of paranormal fun. I enjoy reading and writing stories that push the envelope of what we consider normal, and I love to push boundaries–and in some cases totally smash them. I tend to have alot of sexual tension in my tales as I think all torrid love affairs start with a tingle in our tummies.Read more >>>
