I love a good blog hop, and since I'm soon to be celebrating the release of a book about a Greek God of the spring season (West of Want: coming to bookstores everywhere on 7/10!) , the Spring Fling Blog Hop seemed like the perfect one for me to join!

"Laura Kaye’s captivating writing and vibrant world-building will have readers hooked on the gods of the Anemoi. WEST OF WANT is steamy, spellbinding, and a must-read for all romance fantasy fans."
~Elisabeth Naughton, author of the Eternal Guardians series
WEST OF WANT BLURB:
Betrayal is all he's ever known, but in her, he'll find a love strong enough to be trusted...

When Marcella Raines' twin brother dies, she honors his request to be buried at sea, never expecting the violent storm that swamps her boat. Though she's gravely injured--and still emotionally damaged from her recent divorce--Ella fights to survive.


Zephyros Martius is the Supreme God of the West Wind and Spring, but being the strongest Anemoi hasn't protected him from betrayal and loss. Worse, he's sure his brother Eurus is behind it. When Zeph's heartbreak whips up a storm that shipwrecks a human, his guilt forces him to save her.


Ella is drawn to the vulnerability Zeph hides beneath his otherworldly masculinity and ancient blue eyes. And her honesty, empathy, and unique, calming influence leave Zeph wanting...everything. When Eurus threatens Ella, she and Zeph struggle to let go of the past, defend their future, and embrace what they most want--a love that can be trusted.

Tanya1224 said...

Your books sound so good. Thanks for the chance to win. I've read a lot of books lately and I've liked them all. I guess I'd say Cinder was my favorite just because it was so much better than what I expected. Second up was Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble...it's a great start for me another series to read..wait one more almost forgot. Stacey Kennedy's Frostbite series. So very good. Thank you =)

mimirose41209 said...

Thanks so much for participating in the hop! I love finding new authors/series to add to my TBR list.

My most favorite recent book is Suzanne Brockmann's Born to Darkness. It is set in the not so distant future of a dystopian Boston. It is paranormal but it is a paranormal that is of enhanced human abilities. There are not vamps, weres, shifters or ghosts. I really like this book and can't wait for the next one in the series.
