ScandalScandal (Scions of the Star Empire #1)

By Athena Grayson

Genre: Sci-fi dystopian with romantic elements

Age category: New Adult/ Adult

Release Date: 23 March 2017

Blurb:

Nothing infuriates Princess Ione Ra more than having someone else take control of her reputation from her, and her old nemesis–gossip journalist Jaris Pulne–is poised to do just that with pilfered pics of her caught in a compromising position with her power-couple partner. As someone who’s no stranger to manipulating the markets on her own social life, Ione knows the wrong scandal means social suicide.

For the other half of the power couple, Den Hades, his survival has depended on staying in his powerful father’s shadow in order to protect his secrets. But on the very night of his one chance to earn a shot at becoming a Scion–and freedom from his father’s ambitions, scandal threatens to tear him from Ione, or worse–force them together before their time.

Damage control turns into danger when their attempts to retrieve the images lead them both into the dark underbelly of the glittering city-planet, exposing secrets of both friends and foes that could lead to more than just social suicide.

Scandal is only 0.99$ for a limited time!

Excerpt Fool’s Gambit

©2016 Athena Grayson

Denaat Hades held his blade extended, his arm outstretched. He held the lunge on one burning thigh muscle while he stood in near-complete darkness, waiting for the spectacle to begin. The landscape of the party had given way to the evening’s main event—an exhibition duel and bladework demonstration between himself and the Academy’s Blademaster with a twenty-five year record.

Gone were the ornamental topiary plantings that created nooks and alcoves for socializing, and gone was the impressive display of fine foods and the waterfall made from champ-ale bubbling and fizzing over cut-crystal held under pressurized glass until it burst out of the pursed lips of a crystal nymph into glasses for guests. They’d been discreetly cleared away for anti-gravity pods holding comfortable seating for up to a dozen guests. The pods jockeyed for position along x, y, and z axes based on the credit amounts donated by their occupants, except for the single, stationary pod holding his instructors and closest classmates, fixed to the floor at the edge of the ring of drones generating the light field for the dueling area.

Gone also was his shiny, holo-patterned suit and the starsilk shirt beneath it, and the ornamental lights in his hair. His finery—picked out by his class’s style consultant to display his status and wealth—was stuffed into a storage container in favor of light, form-fitting carbon-fiber armor, with a matching face mask. Gauntlets secured to his wrists generated power for the sensors emitting an electro-mesh shield around his body that shifted with the movements of his off hand. His weapon, an elegant blade of wire and light, derived its power from his main hand gauntlet and the glove that protected his hand. Tuned to full, the blade could melt steel or puncture the transparent alloy that made up the dome above his head.

Thankfully, this was an exhibition duel. The blades would sting, but not incapacitate or kill.

He waited, holding his ready position, as the banners came down, displaying his family’s banner, with the twinkling ribbons of support from classmates and other interested parties, and the Academy banner, under which Master Kenndar dueled. Tradition kept the Academy banner free of ribbons, but his neural interface told him the odds of his loss were just under fifty percent. The markets were calling this a close thing and the players in the markets were nothing, if not savvy odds-players.

The lights came up around the ring, plunging the shifting observation cars into darkness as Master Kenndar entered from the other side of the oval. He took his cue to step forward, meeting his opponent in the center of the ring. He executed the formal bow, hand-grip, and blade salute deserving of a worthy opponent and prayed his master’s teachings weren’t wasted. He returned to his ready position to await the chime beginning the match, but not before he glanced towards the stationary box and spotted her in the front row, the lights in her hair twinkling in time with the flashes of crystal on her dress.

Ione wore a small smile of bored amusement, echoing the expressions of probably everyone in the audience, and he knew their thoughts. Yet another Academy student, ready to show off for status and praise, as if the privileges of his born position didn’t already come with their own accolades. His gaze flicked to the VIP box and he saw another bored, slightly amused expression, only he knew this one masked keen interest. As if the man sensed his scrutiny, Invicti Hades lifted one eyebrow and Den heard the words as surely as if they’d been broadcast for all to hear. What new way have you found to disappoint me?

The lurking paranoia he’d lived with for ten years summoned itself to the forefront of his awareness as the lights in the arena changed to a soft blue. The chimes sounded for Ready and Arm, and his blade flared to golden life. Across the ring, Master Kenndar assumed his own ready position. Den felt the eyes of the spectators crawling over him, adding weight to his protective gear. Waiting for him to fail.

The last chime sounded. Engage!

He leapt forward, his awareness extended out to the blade’s end, as he’d been taught and trained by Kenndar to do for ten years. And knew he’d made a mistake.

Series Blurb for Scions of the Star Empire:

They can have anything they want…except a future.

The children of Landfall’s powerful nobility have all the wealth and privilege of their family status, but there’s only one thing that will give them true freedom–the title of Scion. The only way to earn it is by carefully managing the social influence markets that rank them according to their accomplishments. At the exclusive Landfall Cultural Academy, the heirs compete to elevate their status high enough for the Cultural Trust to grant them the title and the freedom to make their own way, and scandal is as good as scholarship.

About the Author:

Athena Grayson likes kickass heroines, big-brained and sexy beta heroes who aren’t afraid of strong women or their own feelings, and stories that turn the genre tropes sideways. If you’re looking for something a little unexpected, a little more, and a lot of fun…this is your kinda place.

Today is the cover reveal for The Tribulations of Tompa Lee by Edward Hoornaert. This cover reveal is organized by Lola’s Blog Tours.

The Tribulations of Tompa LeeThe Tribulations of Tompa Lee (The Trilogy of Tompa Lee #2)

By Edward Hoornaert

Genre: Science Fiction

Age category: Adult

Blurb:

Goddess or Madwoman? Even she isn’t sure.

A WOMAN

Tompa Lee serves as ambassador to the Shons’ planet and is hailed as their goddess . . . but she distrusts fellow humans, has a dead man living in her head, and fears an imminent attack by Klicks, mankind’s greatest enemy.

A MAN

Ming Mengliev is posing as a mere musician when Klicks destroy the Terran embassy … but although he strives to win Tompa’s trust—and her heart—whose side is this secret agent really on?

AN ALIEN

Lord Keevie, the leader of warlike Klick missionaries, wants to drive humans off planet Zee Shode … but above all he wants to eviscerate Tompa in person, because crushing a goddess will surely make him a god.

A PARK CRAMMED WITH CARNIVORES

Can Tompa survive Keevie’s pursuit, divine madness, and the predators of Palla Pelly Park … and conquer her mistrust of humans long enough to shepherd a ragtag troop of Shons and humans to safety?

You can find The Tribulations of Tompa Lee on Goodreads

The Tribulations of Tompa Lee is only 0.99$

Excerpt:

“Who are you?” Tompa called to the Klick, remembering the old advice, know thine enemy. “What’s your name?”

The tyrannosaurus-like creature rose, bowed, and then sat back on his tail. “My name is Keevie klauk Enkirk’s Spawn, but you may call me Death.”

“The Klick leader?”

“Do you never soar above the obvious?”

“Nope.” To her own surprise, Tompa laughed. Chatting in the dark of night to a bloodthirsty lizard who wanted to kill her felt bizarre. Surreal. Everything that had happened to her on Zee Shode was either terrifying or absurd.

No, not true. Some of Zee Shode was glorious. Finding a friend like Awmit who accepted her. Finding a place where she actually belonged.

And sleeping with Ming? Hadn’t that been glorious, too?

Well, perhaps.

“What can you expect from an uneducated street meat?” she taunted. “I’m the smallest, skinniest, dumbest, lowest class human you’re ever going to find. And yet, a few months ago I beat the tail spikes off you bullies. Drove you right off this planet.”

That’s telling him, girl. Dante spoke inside her head with more passion than usual, making Tompa feel cozy and less alone.

“How I shall enjoy eviscerating you, Tompa Lee.” Keevie paced back and forth, his tail thrashing from side to side, tearing up the grass-like ground cover.

Note from the author:

The books in The Trilogy of Tompa Lee are standalone novels that share an overall story arc. The books are:

•    The Trial of Tompa Lee

•    The Tribulations of Tompa Lee

•    The Triumph of Tompa Lee

Before I start writing, I have to think of something I haven’t seen before. Without a unique kernel, I can’t get anywhere.

In The Tribulations of Tompa Lee, there were two kernels: national parks and a James Bond-type secret agent who plays the oboe.  (I play the oboe, too, but that’s strictly a coincidence, I assure you.)

I’d never read a book set in a national park on another world.  What would aliens preserve in their version of Yellowstone?  Hmm.

Shons care less about the beauties of nature than they do with preserving as many lethal predators as possible – and thus a huge park crammed with carnivores is the setting for Tribulations. Tompa must overcome not only aliens who want to kill her, but the fiercest beasts the planet has to offer.

Losing KylerLosing Kyler (The Kennedy Boys #2)

by Siobhan Davis

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Age category: Upper Young Adult

Release Date: 27 March, 2017

Blurb:

Condemned to repeat the sins of the past…

Faye thought losing her parents was the most devastating thing to happen to her, but she was wrong. Her uncle’s scandalous revelation has sent her into a tailspin, leaving her questioning her entire existence.

Everything she believed is built on a lie.

And the one person she shares a passionate, soul-deep connection with can’t be there for her.

Faye and Ky can’t be together. It’s forbidden. Though they are determined to avoid replicating their parents’ mistakes, caving to their feelings is as tempting as the apple in the Garden of Eden.

Ky had sworn off girls until Faye bulldozed her way into his life. Now, she’s his whole world, and their forced separation is crushing him. Once his manipulative ex resurfaces—hellbent on ruining the Kennedys—he’ll do whatever it takes to protect his loved ones including turning his back on the one person he can’t live without.

Then tragedy strikes and all bets are off.

But is it too late?

When Faye needs him and he isn’t there for her, guilt and hurt threaten to obliterate their love. As they start to rebuild their fractured hearts, another sordid family secret is uncovered, and Faye worries Ky may be lost to her forever.

But can you truly lose someone if they don’t want to be found?

Losing Kyler Excerpt:

In this moment, I hate my mother, and I’m mad as all hell that she isn’t here for me to yell at. To demand she tell me the Goddamned truth and explain why she thought it was such a good idea to lie about virtually every facet of my life. My hands ball into fists at my sides, and I’m barely holding it together.

“I also discovered that he was working for a firm in Belfast at the time your mother told you she met him. He wasn’t working locally, Faye. There’s no way Saoirse could’ve met him in the way she described to you.”

Liar! How could she do this to me!

I don’t even know who I am anymore, and every memory I have of my parents is tarnished by the knowledge that it was a fabrication. That I was being lied to every single day of my life.

Why? Were they ever planning on telling me the truth?

Hopping up, enraged and upset, and struggling with a million other emotions, I sweep the contents of my dresser clear across the floor. Picking up the stool, I fling it across the room, watching as it smashes against the wall, the sounds of splintering wood adding to James’s  shocked gasps. Tears erupt from my eyes, and my cries fill the room as I slump to the ground, sobbing uncontrollably into my hands.

Ky kneels down, gently wrapping his arms around me from behind. His limbs are tense, his arms a little stiff, and I feel it too—the lure of his warmth and the call of his body battling against what we’ve been told, forcing us to maintain a certain distance.

“Kyler.” James’s voice contains clear warning.

“Shut up, Dad. She needs me, and I’m only comforting her. You’re the one who fucked up here, not us. And you’re a damn hypocrite to criticize us after all you’ve done.”

Ky’s statement is paradoxical in part, because the truth is more complex than that. Is James the hypocrite or are we? I don’t know what to think anymore. I massage my temples, digging my fingers into my skin with brutal intensity, welcoming the pressure. What is right and what is wrong? I’m not sure I know anymore, and my jumbled brain is incapable of constructing logical thought patterns.

Blurb:

Ama is a talented, young musician whose life is changed forever when she is kidnapped by bandits and wounded so badly that she loses her hearing. Far from home and newly deafened, Ama discovers that the music she has been learning all her life possesses hidden powers. The music may even be powerful enough to guide Ama home … if she can learn to listen without hearing.

You can find Follow the Music on Goodreads   

Excerpt:

Ama tried to hear. She tried to hear the words spoken by the girl with the honey-brown eyes, who held out her hands to push her back down when she tried to sit up. She tried to hear her own ragged breaths as panic welled inside her. She strained to hear the music that had accompanied and defined every moment of her life. But she heard nothing.

Nothing.

And that’s when Ama knew, absolutely knew, that she wasn’t dead. Because Ama’s mother had always told her that Heaven was made of music. And this strange place was nothing but silence. The quiet was so loud that Ama wondered if sound had ever existed.

She couldn’t even hear herself scream.

Excerpt:

General Ryojin wasn’t particularly fond of the genetic program on the Enzo base, but on occasion it produced some excellent results. Lieutenant Donnelly was one of the few great accomplishments of the Heishi Project and at present he ran the program.

The general had been ordered by his superior to check on Lt. Donnelly’s new pet project. It was a project he’d been promised by the lieutenant would cure some of the less than pleasant side effects of their patented serum. If Lt. Donnelly was correct in his assumptions he would be up for promotion.

The general slid his hands in his pockets and walked through every check point without stopping to present identification. Soldiers saluted as he passed by. Every general was given a certain level of security clearance provided by a chip inserted in their arm. Checkpoints automatically registered the serial number and allowed them to pass.

He flicked his longer than regulation hair out of his face. There weren’t many people above him in rank and no one brave enough to enforce the policy on hair length. He’d lost count how many checkpoints he’d passed as he made his way deeper into the base, through levels of security, a tiny fraction of the population on the base even knew existed.

The Heishi Project was one of the best kept secrets of the Federation.  Some of the details leaked to the masses. The enhanced soldiers who came from the project became a type of bogeyman. No one knew the exact extent of the project and so wild tales arose to fill the holes.

Ryojin stopped outside the last checkpoint. The soldier stared and fumbled with his ‘sir’ as he tried to salute at the same time. Ryojin knew the effect he had on his soldiers. He was the youngest general in history at thirty-three but it wasn’t always the reason they stared. Ryojin was almost pure Japanese, and one of the few remaining noble families able to keep their bloodlines pure.

He was a rarity among the mutts of humanity.

Ryojin heard screeching and a crash from the genetic labs. His eyebrow rose at the young soldier. Those were not sounds he wanted to hear. The young man stuttered again and opened the door for him, trying to explain but his words were jumbled. Ryojin sighed. He walked through the door and around the corner.

The general stopped in his tracks as he witnessed something he did not usually see in the labs. A young woman with the whitest skin he’d ever seen screamed at three of his soldiers. All of the soldiers were men and all of them were at least three times her weight. She flipped one over her shoulder and hit the second with enough force to drop him like a rock.

The general frowned. He got a look at her eyes. No, she wasn’t Japanese. Something was not right. He intended to find out what exactly was going on.

Donnelly had some explaining to do.

The general walked forward with purpose as she whipped around to face the third soldier. The soldier gritted his teeth but didn’t back down. It amused Ryojin to see him try to take her on though it was clear how outmatched he was. She feinted a punch and then kicked him in the genitals; a low blow.

When she turned on the general, neither of them hesitated. Her fist flew at him with impressive speed. He caught it easily enough without breaking stride and spun her around. He held her close, incapacitating both her arms without too much effort. The girl was strong, but not stronger than him.

General Ryojin was the shining achievement of the Heishi Project.

She growled low and animalistic, bucking against him but he held her tight as he quickly inspected her. The girl was malnourished which angered him. There were marks and bruises all over her body, some were from the mandatory tests, but there were other marks that shouldn’t have been there.

He sighed as the realization came to him. Donnelly had been slipping again without reporting it. They couldn’t manage the sickness if it wasn’t reported. The lieutenant would need to be dealt with.

A doctor came out casually from her lab with a syringe in hand. He arched an eyebrow at her nonchalance. “Care to explain, Lyn?”

Lyn Tallis was a woman he knew from childhood, but they had taken separate paths to reach the point in their lives they were at now and it was mere coincidence she worked for him.

The girl in his arms laughed in a manner which concerned him. He frowned down at her and wondered again where she’d come from. Pure Europeans were nearly extinct. At most a few thousand remained in the icy north of Earth and his guess was generous.

“Only a test, cousin,” Lyn said. She stepped over one of the fallen soldiers and approached the girl. “She did amazingly well.”

Suddenly the weight in his arms doubled as the girl collapsed. He almost stumbled forward before he caught himself against the sudden change in balance.

“It’s all right, Lyn,” the girl whispered. “You don’t need to sedate me.”

He watched the exchange closely with narrowed eyes. Clearly there was more going on than had been on the report. This girl was a captive subject and not a willing one. That information changed everything.

“Where is the lieutenant?” Ryojin demanded. He needed to be debriefed. Immediately.

He didn’t let go of the girl. He didn’t trust her.

“I didn’t know you had cousins,” the girl said.

Lyn grimaced, her version of a smile. “Of course, Katerina. Now you can go back to your cell or finish the test.”

“The cell.”

Ryojin propped her up and let her go. When he finally looked into her eyes they were dead and lifeless. None of the fire in them he had seen moments before. He needed answers.

Her eyes snapped to his and the grey flashed like lightning. The sudden light allowed him to witness the raging storm inside before shuttering once more as she followed Lyn.

He was going to like her.

She only has one rule.

Don’t date or otherwise screw around with the client.

Brent Andrews knows Natalie’s rules.

And he’s about to make sure he’s an exception to them.

All of them.

Even ones she didn’t know she had.

You can pre-order Behind the Lens on Amazon.

Excerpt:

I scrunch my nose up as I look at the door hanging open for us. “It’s going to be a love fest in there, isn’t it?”

Brent scratches his chin. “Honestly, every time the girls have shown up, I’ve had a girlfriend–so I’ve never really paid much attention.”

I swallow, looking down at my shoes before looking over at him. “Was it a love fest for you?”

He blinks at me a few times, his lips in a stern line. “We don’t just start fucking all over the bus.”

I throw my hands up. “Hey, I know how it is. You haven’t gotten laid in a few months and you get to see your significant other–”

“Is that all you think we think about?” he asks, a slight smirk on his face. “Or is that all you think about?”

My face burns red, and I shake my head. “No–not at all.”

“Brent?” a woman’s voice calls at our backs.

“Tay!” Brent replies as he turns, pulling her into a hug. “It’s good to see you!”

Tay smiles as she pulls away from him. “I forgot how lovely you guys smell right after you get off stage.”

I watch as Brent’s face turns red, and he puts his hands in his pockets as he rocks on his heels. “Sorry, I haven’t gotten a chance to shower.”

She punches him in the shoulder. “Seriously, Brent? Believe me, Kie smells no better than you do. Speaking of which, where is he?”

Brent glances at me and then to the woman. She has long blonde hair curled into waves with ice blue eyes that are anything but cold. She smiles as she looks over at me, holding out her hand. “I’m sorry, this was rude of me–you must be Natalie, the photographer? I’m Taylor, Kie’s girlfriend. Everyone calls me Tay.”

I shake her hand. “You’re the first one to actually introduce yourself to me. The other girls didn’t even notice me at all.”

She laughs, running a hand through her hair. “I’m sure if I saw Kie, I would’ve ignored you too!”

I nod over my shoulder. “Brent, go take a shower. I’ll help Tay find wherever Kie ran off to.”

Brent narrows his eyes at me, and I smile up at him. “You do smell.”

He blinks at me. “And you smell any better?”

My eyes widen and he puts his hands up before backing slowly onto the tour bus.

“I’m sorry if I smell,” I say as I look down at my damp tank top.

Taylor laughs. “You definitely don’t smell like any of them do.”

“Thanks,” I reply. I nod towards the building. “I think he went somewhere inside the venue.”

We fall into step with one another and she looks over at me with a slow smile. “So you…and Brent?”

My face burns and I feel a cold sweat building on my spine. I tell myself it’s just the difference in temperature between the air-conditioned backstage and the heat of Arizona outside.

“No, not at all,” I reply, and my voice cracks.

Because I’m thirsty. Who wouldn’t be after the workout that is doing show photography?

She bites her lip. “Sorry, I didn’t mean to assume–”

I put a hand up, laughing a bit too high pitched. “Believe me, I’ve gotten used to people assuming that.”

“So do you?” she asks, biting her lip as she looks at me.

“Like him?” I finish her sentence.

She closes her eyes as we walk further into the venue and shakes her head. “You don’t have to tell me. We don’t know each other…It just seemed like you do.”

An awkward silence falls over us, and I clear my throat. “Uh, I think I saw Kie go this way. All these places are so different — crazy mazes.”

I hear a muffled noise that sounds like Kie and head towards the door I think it’s coming from. I open the door to peek my head in and blink as I stare at Kie with a half naked girl wrapped around him and his pants at his ankles. His eyes meet mine, going wide before I slam the door shut.

Taylor stands back behind me, and she swallows, staring at the closed door. “Anything?”

My hands go into fists as I try to control my facial expression. “Place has rats apparently.”

Her eyes drop to the floor, and she nods. “Sometimes they do.”

“Maybe he made it onto the bus by now?” I say, linking my arm in hers. Guilt washes over me as I try  to act like I saw nothing.

Her body is stiff, and I can tell by the blank look in her eyes that she knows the way Kie is. “Sure, if not, I’m sure he’ll make his way there eventually.”

Silence falls over us as we make our way towards the bus. My chest tightens as I glance over at her, and I bite my lip before asking, “So it’s that obvious?”

Taylor shakes her head, looking over at me and her friendly eyes have a dark hint to them as does her tone when she replies, “What?”

I feel the need to distract her from whatever is going on in her head.

“That I might be…” I suck my lips into my mouth before admitting, “A tiny bit attracted to Brent?”

Taylor bursts out laughing. “A tiny bit? And who says it’s only obvious one way?”
