Welcome back, readers! This week I'm again featuring a fellow author and her new release. Please read on and meet Samhain author Brenda Huber. She's doing a giveaway on her website and social media outlets, so check out the links in her bio just below for all the details about where to find her online. Meanwhile, I'm doing a flash giveaway today for a $5 Amazon gift card, so read below for the question and how to enter!
I’ve always been an avid reader. With that love of books came a passion to write them. The first romance novel I ever picked up (and probably still one of my all time favorites) was Captive Bride by Johanna Lindsey. I own every book she has out. I have too many other favorite authors that I loyally read to list, but I tend to lean more toward Paranormal Romance, of course, as well as Suspense and Historical. I am a determined gardener, despite the fact that my family claims I have a black thumb. Even I will admit that plants in my household have a 50/50 shot…but I refuse to give up. I love to study history, particularly that of the American West and Civil War, and Revolutionary War, Medieval European history, and Egyptian history. Eclectic, I know, but there it is. I prize spending time with my children above all else. I live in Iowa with my wonderful husband, my two children, and my very spoiled dog Sam. You can learn more by visiting me on my website or following me on Facebook and Twitter: @b_hubie.
Today's Giveaway Question: If you could live in any historical time period, which would it be and why? Brenda shared her favorites, so let's hear yours! Everyone who comments will be entered to win a $5 Amazon gift card, winner chosen randomly and posted here on the blog tomorrow. Now let's find out more about Brenda's upcoming release...
Chronicles of the Fallen, Book 4
A legendary sword isn't the only thing this merciless demon desires...
Possessed of immeasurable patience and an unrelenting drive for justice, Sebastian, the Demon of Vengeance, has finally met his match. His mission is to keep the new Guardian safe until the Sword of Kathnesh is retrieved, but the aggravating woman insists on throwing herself into harm’s way at every opportunity.
Finding the sacred relic is Phoebe Mackenzie’s task, and protecting it is her family’s legacy. But when Sebastian resorts to magic to save her life, he unwittingly exposes a secret sealed deep within her—and paints a target on her back no demon can resist. As Phoebe fights to hold on to her identity, Sebastian’s oldest nemesis vows to use any and all means to force Sebastian into a fight to the death—including targeting his mate. Sebastian will do whatever it takes to preserve the barriers between Earth and Hell. But in unleashing the raging storm inside him, he risks losing the woman he loves.
The Guardian looked so bedraggled and shell-shocked, leaning against the wall of the
cave as if it were the only thing keeping her upright. Her hair was a mess. Her clothing was
torn and bloodied, hanging from her in shreds. And the scent of her fear was sharp, stirring
But she blinked up at him, the will to survive written all over her beautiful face. Something jumpstarted inside his chest, as if a livewire had been hooked up directly to his
soul…or the withered empty husk of what was left of his soul anyway. For a moment, he
lost his purpose. Lost his train of thought. Lost his very reason for tracking her here. All he
could see, all he could hear, or smell, or sense was this female. He didn’t know why, only that
those stunning eyes of hers had captivated him somehow.
She flinched and readjusted her grip on her bloody shoulder.
If he could have, Sebastian would have brought every one of Sïnsobar’s minions back
so he could rip them apart all over again. But his rage wouldn’t help her. And so he battled
for calm. Battled to hear the voice of reason inside his own head.
Sebastian thrust his now clean hand out once more. “Come on, we have to hurry.”
Her emerald green stare turned to the mouth of the cave over a hundred yards away. He
watched, awed and more than a little irritated, as she pushed to her feet and began wobbling
her way toward the exit. She cut a wide arc around him, refusing his assistance. Between
each unsteady step, she braced a shaking hand on the rough cave wall, leaving smears of
blood in her wake. Her pace was slow and labored, but she hadn’t uttered a sound.
After what she’d just seen, after what she’d just been through, he couldn’t fathom how
she was still even conscious.
She was stubborn.
She was strong.
“Magnificent,” he whispered.
He wanted to let her keep whatever shreds of pride she still clung to with such fierce
determination, yet he knew they didn’t have time. He hadn’t exaggerated. Sin could return
at any moment.
She took a misstep and nearly went to her knees, catching herself at the last moment.
Sebastian’s heart lurched. With his chest aching in an odd, uncomfortable way, Sebastian
“I’m sorry, professor, but we’re gonna have to do this my way.”
