Today I have a super awesome post for you all!  We all know and love the fabulous Shelly Crane.  So I'm excited to not only unveil and introduce her latest book in the Devoured Series, but also new cover designs on the first two books in the series!!

 Altered (Devoured Series Book 3)

by Shelly Crane

~ Altered (Devoured #3) Synopsis ~

Enoch is tested.
His brother is human, the thing he hates. He watches as the brother he knew is stripped away by his love for Clara. He's never hated someone as much as he hated her...but the bond forced him to not only want to protect her, but feel things he never had before.
When a girl needs his help, that split second decision changes his whole world in one instant. A Devourer's Fate...

~ Altered (Devoured #3) Excerpts ~

Excerpt One
“It’s cold,” I lied. It was cold, but that was absolutely not the reason for the goose flesh. He knew it and I knew it. And I hated it. I didn’t like for people to get under my skin. It made me feel too vulnerable, like they had power over me. When they had power, they could hurt you, leave you, die and leave you destroyed. I wasn't up for any more of that. Except for Clara; she was already attached to me and I owed it to her.
He looked over. Even in the dark with barely any light being provided from the streetlamps, I could see his purple eyes searching mine. “Just help me and then you never have to see me again.”
It was almost like he could tell what I’d been thinking about.
 Excerpt Two 
I fed on her terror and fright and it tasted like heaven in my mouth. But as I looked down at that woman who had just given herself to me, and I hadn’t even had to persuade her to, it washed over me all at once how I didn’t really want to hurt her. That I wanted to hurt people, but not her. Not really. I had gotten everything I needed from her without doing that, hadn’t I? I was full and sated. Now I was just letting my true nature take over, letting the Devourer in me take over.
But wasn’t that what I was supposed to do? I looked down at that woman and was so confused. I cursed Clara and Eli and all their love and human bullcrap for turning me into the thing that I was now.
No. I realized then that this was my turning point. That if I let this girl go, that I would be just like my brother one day and that wasn’t what I wanted. I was not going to be some human. I was a Devourer. My chin ached from clenching it so tightly. I turned my glare fully on her and knew that honestly it wasn’t her fault, but she was about to pay the price for my brother’s mistake.
“I’m sorry, love.” I lifted her by her arms and then leaned into her, pressing her to the wall.
“For what?” her small voice asked, falsely reassured by my about-face. “What are you doing to me?”
“I’m sorry that our night is just beginning.”
She seemed to understand and her face crumpled. “Please. I’m sorry for whatever I said to—”
“It’s not you,” I grinned as evilly as I could muster, “it’s me.”

~ Devour (Devoured #1) Synopsis ~

Clara has it all. A wrestling star boyfriend, popular friends, all the right school activities...pretty much a perfect life...up until her parents died. Now she lives with the Pastor and his family and though they take good care of her, she feels alone. Then her boyfriend, Tate, starts to show signs of trouble when a new guy, Eli, comes to town. Clara is fascinated with him but hides it until something happens. Eli confesses to her that she gives him something he's never had before...something he needs. Everything is about to change for this normal pretty popular girl in a supernatural way.

~ Consume (Devoured #2) Synopsis ~

Eli and Clara's story continues as she tries to finish high school. Eli is as over protective as ever and Tate and his group of friends are no help. They wait for the Horde, always looking over their shoulder. But the ever annoying but strangely prophetic bird begins to become more of a chatter box and Eli learns something that could change some things. Not just for him and Clara, but Devourers everywhere.

Then an unexpectedness guest comes forcing Eli to flee with Clara, leaving her temporary family behind. She is thrown into his world of underground 'traitors' and learns much of his past. They meet many new people and creatures along the way to freedom. But when tragedy strikes the two, will Clara see the monster in Eli? Can she handle his strange world and awful past? Will one of them lose their life forever...

BLOG TOUR POST: Promise Me Forever by Sarah Ashley Jones

Promise Me This and Promise Me Forever
by Sarah Ashley Jones


Promise Me This Synopsis:

Welcome to the South—where the tea is sweet and the accents are sweeter. This Southern way of life is all Charlie has ever known. It’s not until she loses the only person who pushed her to break free of the Southern Belle mold that she starts living the life she needs and not the life her parents forced on her.
Jhett has lived on the edge for as long as he could remember - constantly teetering back and forth between being a rock star and living a normal life. His rebellious and sometimes arrogant attitude is known to get him into trouble, especially with the girls who hang on his every move.
Charlie never thought that a trip to pack up her brother’s apartment would leave her feeling even more unsettled about the grainy details of her brother’s death. Her quest for information leads her straight to his old hangout and into arms of Jhett, who suspiciously knows more about her situation than he ever should.
Only a few questions remain: Can you trust someone based on their word alone? And if you make a promise, how far will you go to keep it?

Promise Me Forever Synopsis:

Charlie Jennings and Jhett Hudson knew that a single moment could change everything.
It took them one song to find each other, one question to give them a chance, one kiss to fall in love, and one night to almost lose it all. But they had one thing other couples lack—pure, unconditional love—and that takes more than a moment to walk away from.
Falling in love is only the beginning. Forever is what happens next.

My Review:Promise Me Forever
In Sarah Ashley Jones's first book, Promise Me Forever, we meet Charlie and Jhett.  Charlie has just lost her brother and has flown out to his apartment in California to pack up his belongings.  But soon she meets Jhett and her life changes dramatically.  

No spoilers:  Sarah has blown me away with this story of love, lost, redemption, and acceptance.  I loved the way this story unfolded seamlessly around these characters and I was routing for them to get their Happily Ever After (which thank goodness, FINALLY comes in Promise Me Forever).  I was left boo-hooing through the end of this book and lingering on these characters in my thoughts for days after being done.  

I was lucky enough to read both Promise Me This and Promise Me Forever back-to-back.  If you've not read either, I suggest you do it this way too!  Sarah does leave you hanging at the end of book 1!  

Either way, this book and the subsequent novella will engage and touch you!  Pick up your copies today!!

Tens List:

Ten people who influenced you to become an author

  1. My Mom - My mother has always been the first person to push me to follow my crazy dreams and writing a book was definitely ones of those dreams. She played a huge part in actually getting Promise Me This published and I would probably never have finished if it wasn't for her.
  2. Amy Bartol - Everything she writes I find myself continuously thinking 'I want to be like her someday.' She's my inspiration - my who I want to be when I grow up. :P
  3. Mrs. Washer - My first grade teacher. I remember she would have these blank little booklets made up for us to make up our own stories and illustrate them when we were done with work or during free time and I would try and finish my work earlier so I could go digging through them to find one I wanted to use. They were cut out into different shapes like apple barrels, trees, cats, dogs, etc. She was also one of the most encouraging ladies I have ever met in my life. Truly an amazing person and teacher.
  4. Tess Watson - She happened to be there since day one when I said 'I think I'm going to try and write a book.' And I sent her all my crazy first ideas and then all the words that started Promise Me This until the very end. She always told me KEEP GOING. So I did. LOL.
  5. Person on my blog  - Once upon a time, for a hot minute, I was a book blogger. And someone commented on my blog that I should write my own book because she read my About Me section and from that alone, she could tell she would love my writing style. That was the very first seed planting in my head of 'maybeeeeeee I should try and write a book.'
  6. Tina Reber - This lovely lady was who introduced me to Self-Publishing. I found her books through Amazon suggestions on my Kindle and she was the first author who I saw included a Facebook link in the back of her book. Since I had to wait for book two, I liked her page and right before release of book two, she announced she was picked up by a publisher and it threw me off so much. I couldn't understand what that meant because I thought since I read her book on my Kindle and bought it from the Kindle store...it WAS published. Once she explained what it all meant, I was like....WHAT! I can do this myself!? I'm on it!
  7. The Haters - Yeah. I've had a few people try and bring me down...but they are some big reasons why I keep going and wanted to prove that I COULD do this crazy thing called being an author. So HAH. I did it. And I'm going to keep doing it. :P
  8. Patrick Ness - Another author who I want to be like when I grow up. This man is the King of Plot Twists. I just...there are no words. I want to mess with people's minds like he did to me!
  9. My Husband - He never once told me to reconsider this journey and for that, I am sooo thankful. Especially when I am running off four Monster Energy Drinks and five hours of sleep after three days and I'm kind of terrifying. Thanks babe.
  10. Virtual Life - Once upon a time when the Internet first came out and forums were a big thing...I, along with a few other young girls, formed this little online group called Virtual Life.  Basically, we all had our own family that we wrote about every day and sometimes we even crossed over families when it came to relationships and such. We saved all our files on floppy disks...it was THAT long ago. It really was my first taste of writing long and thought out stories. I WISH I still had those floppies!

Fans of K.A. Tucker's Ten Tiny Breaths, we have a SUPER exciting announcement: 
On September 1, 2014, Atria is releasing a PREQUEL NOVELLA to Ten Tiny Breaths that tells the story from Trent's point of view! It's called IN HER WAKE, and we cannot wait one more breath to read it! 

In Her Wake

About IN HER WAKE: Cole Reynolds had it all. And then one night he makes a bad choice... and loses everything. When a drunken night out at a Michigan State college party results in the death of six people, Cole must come to terms with his part in the tragedy. Normally, he'd be able to lean on his best friends. The best friends that have been in his life since he could barely walk. Only, they're gone. Worse, there's the shattered body of a sixteen-year-old girl lying somewhere in a hospital bed, her entire life ripped from her because of a case of beer and a set of keys. Everyone assures him that they know it wasn't intentional and yet he can't ignore the weight of their gazes, the whispers behind his back. The all-consuming guilt he feels every time he thinks of that girl who won't so much as allow him near her hospital room to apologize. As the months go by and the shame and loneliness festers, Cole begins to lose his grip of what once was important-college, his girlfriend, his future. His life. It's not until Cole hits rock-bottom that he can begin to see another way out of his personal hell: forgiveness. And there's only one person who can give that to him...

About FOUR SECONDS TO LOSE: Owning a strip club isn’t the fantasy most guys expect it to be. With long hours, a staff with enough issues to keep a psych ward in business, and the police regularly on his case, twenty-nine year old Cain is starting to second guess his unspoken mission to save the women he employs. And then blond, brown-eyed Charlie Rourke walks through his door, and things get really complicated. Cain abides by a strict “no sleeping with the staff” rule. But being around Charlie challenges Cain’s self-control…and it’s been a long time since any woman has done that. Twenty-two-year old Charlie Rourke needs a lot of money, really fast, in order to vanish before it’s too late. Taking her clothes off for men makes her stomach curl but Charlie tells herself that at least she’s putting her acting anddancing skills to good use. And though her fellow dancers seem eager to nab their sexy, sophisticated, and genuinely caring boss, she’s not interested. After all, Charlie Rourke doesn’t really exist—and the girl pretending to be her doesn’t need to complicate her life with romance. Unfortunately, Charlie soon discovers that developing feelings for Cain is inevitable, that those feelings may not be unrequited—but losing him when he finds out what she’s involved with will be more painful than any other sentence awaiting her.
