Random Excerpt . . . Balance In Death by Francesca Vance



Grabbed your copy of Balance In Death yet??




Death can't save everyone . . .

Cole Mackensie is a Reaper, a sect of Angels created to keep the balance between the living and the dead, and he knows when a soul calls, he’s duty bound to answer. He must do what he was created to do. Reap. The loss of lives often leaves him emotionally raw. He can’t have his happily-ever-after, but maybe he can have his happy-right-now.

Cole knows better than to get attached to humans, especially Ava. She is fragile, breakable, and his good friend's daughter. Stubborn and shy, she turns Death himself inside out, but he knows she would eventually want marriage, children and a mate to grow old with. A soul mate. None of which he could give her, but this knowledge does not stop him from craving her.

When her spirit calls out to him one last time, his world is turned upside down. Torn between the balance his Reaper demands and the desire for revenge as a man, Cole knows the choice isn’t easily made. Knowing he can’t fight fate, even for love, doesn’t stop him from trying to solve the mystery.

The monsters are real, and he has to face the reality that even he can't save everyone. No matter who you are, you can’t fight fate.

Excerpt:
A knock sounded on his door, and this time a shiver worked its way down his neck at the sound. It wasn’t Jake on the other side of the door. He could feel it. Cole dropped his head onto the desk, and fought the images that his brain seemed all too happy to plaster in front of his closed eyelids. The curve of Ava’s back, arched as she rode him harder. The smattering of freckles on her shoulders. That first wicked smile.
“Come in,” he called and to his own disgust, his voice cracked. A slim hand appeared first. Dainty almost, but he recalled vividly what that dainty little hand was capable of. Bright, bubblegum pink nails trailed up and down his dick the night before, now heralded her arrival. The rest of her came into view and the Reaper noticed all the things he hadn’t when she’d stepped into his office. He’d been too dumbfounded to register anything other than her presence and what it meant.
Cole had slept with a good friend’s daughter. Anything beyond that had escaped notice. Now though, he noted everything from the boots that made her legs look even longer, to the red streaks in her hair that she’d somehow hidden in an upsweep.
How was it that the Human who stood before him was capable of turning his mind inside out? It defied logic. He was the judge and jury at the end of life. So how the hell did a Human woman with pink nail polish shake him? Why was it even that big of a deal? Because his mind whispered, you still want her.
“You’re a fucking Angel!” Ava’s voice was barely over a whisper. Insurance in case someone was listening too closely. “You knew I was Human, and slept with me anyway!”
Cole responded before he could think, “We didn't do much sleeping, Ava, and I’m no Angel. I’m a Reaper.”

BURNED, a Paranormal Romance by Amanda Leigh releases Nov. 18th! 

Cover Designer: najla qamber designs


Just when it seems things can’t worse…they do.

When Kiara wakes up as a vampire, she knows things will never be the same. Her best friend is dead and the demon that killed her is still out there somewhere. They're back to square one and Kiara’s newfound thirst hovers over everything they do. The hostility between Trent and Kaleib still brews just below the surface. Will Kiara hold it together or will she lose control? Will her new thirst be too much?

Kiara blames Trent for Sarah’s death and hates herself every time she feels something for him. Their budding trust is tested. Despite everything, he tries to be there for her. By her bedside when she wakes, helping her figure out how to tell her godparents what she is now, even staying in her house when she can’t sleep.

When Kiara’s dreams are plagued with visions of Sarah threatening her, Kaleib and Trent say that it's coincidence. Her mind dealing with the loss. But as the visions come while she’s awake, it looks less like coincidence and more like something sinister.

Is it her anger over Sarah’s untimely death or is it something more? Something dangerous?

Amanda Leigh has had a love of words since before she could write them herself. Once she learned to read and write herself she just couldn’t stop. She reads any genre as long as the book sounds interesting. Which may explain why she can’t and never will be able to stick to one genre in her writing. From Contemporary Romance to Women’s Fiction to Paranormal Romance to Poetry and more to come. When she’s not writing or reading she enjoys getting swept away in a great TV show, going to the theater, listening to music, cooking and many different forms of art. She has a cat she adores and also loves Psychology, tea, coffee, chocolate and Elvis Presley. Not necessarily in that order. Feel free to get in touch with her.

Random Excerpt . . . Justice In Death by Francesca Vance



Justice In Death

A Reaper Society Short Story
Release: June 16, 2017
Genre: Sci-Fi/Fantasy




Ash Campbell is looking for a promotion in the Reaper World. When he lands the case of a missing Human and Fae, he'll stop at nothing to close the case. But will he be able to find the missing girls before it's too late?

Sebastian Romero has crossed the line this time. He made a deal he can't deliver on. He'll soon learn the contractor's justice may not be the justice he should be afraid of.

Excerpt:


Ash’s phone rang, one sharp bling that startled him out of his thoughts. “Ash,” he said, turning to walk back to the van.
“It’s Rosette.” She paused and he got the sense that it was big news by her hesitation.
“Spit it out.” He dug the keys out of his pocket and unlocked the door. Rosette wasn’t one to let emotions get in the way; she wasn’t cold per se, but professional and concise. Crying or complaining didn’t change facts and accomplished nothing. She’d been that way as long as Ash had known her. The silence on the other end made his hair stand on end.
“They were found, weren’t they,” he said softly. “Recovery or Rescue?” Alive or dead.
He cursed under his breath. Alive and it would be a long road to recovery; dead then this was all for nothing.
“Rescue. They’re alive but both of them need medical care,” she supplied, her words stuttering as she seemed to force them out. How bad were they? What kind of damage had been done by Sebastian’s men?
Ash turned the van around and headed back to the Guild, a whispered prayer falling from his lips the entire way.
