The choice is yours - Facing Shadows vs Ebony Fight

After slowly settling in here in Ireland, I had a look at how Ivory Guard (The Guard Duet #1) was doing, especially in the USA, and it had me wondering which one of my books you are actually looking foward to the most. Facing Shadows or Ebony Fight
More of the Patroness...or the Ivory Guard?
Hmmm, guess it's time for a poll.

The choice is up to you!!!
Have a look at the poll in the right sidebar and help me figure out what book to publish first. :)

Facing Shadows (The Patroness #3)

The Turn has hit and magic rules the world once more, and Maiwenn and her friends have to face the chaos and the changes it brings.

Surely it can’t get worse, right?
Oh, yes it can.

When once again Morgan is out for revenge and after Maiwenn, Death is more than intrigued and sticks his nose in. Wanting to put an end to this feud once and for all he decides to put Maiwenn to the test.
The agreed reward: she may live.
A lethal obstacle course begins...






OR

Ebony Fight (The Guard Duet #2)
A witch on the run

After allying herself with Lillian’s Ivory Guard, Becca is determined to round up more like-minded demons and Ebonys that could help in their fight against the old system. She knows her actions draw unwelcome attention and that she has to be careful now more than ever before.
So is she foolish to trust Stone, the man who saves her life - and stirs her blood?

A demon out to get her

Stone is as cold and hard as his namesake. When he is ordered to infiltrate a group of rebellious demons to find out how far the do-gooder attitude has spread and to kill their leader, he doesn’t even blink. What he didn’t count on was Becca - the hot whirlwind turning his world and heart upside down.

…and all hell breaks loose.

We will be offering a bouquet of paranormal delights to 3 happy winners, which will include an ecopy of Charlotte & Sebastian by Leanne Crabtree, Golden Dunes of Renhala by Amy Joy Lutchen, Shadow Touched by Lilou Roux, and an ecopy of my own Ivory Guard
Yes, you read right, 4 books for each lucky winner!!!


So mark your calendars and don't forget to come back...
it's my Paranormal Birthday Giveaway after all! :)



Learn more about the books up for grabs:

Charlotte & Sebastian by Leanne Crabtree



Charlotte works at the Agency, a place committed to stopping rogue paranormal beings from terrorizing members of the public.

Sebastian, a vampire, is the only paranormal working at the Agency and no-one but the Director knows why.

Charlotte should despise Sebastian, after all it was a vampire who murdered her family, but instead she finds herself drawn to him.

Sebastian is fascinated by Charlotte, the feisty young woman who equally wants and loathes him, and once he gets a taste of her he’ll do anything to make her his.









Ivory Guard (The Guard Duet #1) by Natalie Herzer

Life will make you stumble

One peaceful afternoon Lillian finds two angels in her living room – wings and gloriole and all – telling her she is an Ivory. Half human and half angel she is born to fight for humankind and to guard the hellholes where the membrane between worlds is at its weakest.
She, an important warrior? Yeah, riiiight.

Life can make you fall

Raz might be an angel but he doesn’t do compassion. His job is to train her, to make her a leader and that’s what he will do. So Lillian will just have to suck it up when she discovers the deadly truth behind his words. When she does exactly that, he has to admit there’s more to the bookworm than he thought. Much more. But there’s one thing he shouldn’t forget – in his world feelings come with a price. Is he willing to pay?

Love will give you wings.



Golden Dunes of Renhala (Renhala #2) by Amy Joy Lutchen
How do you live with a secret so dark and so deeply woven into your being that it threatens to smother your very existence, with no known way out? Use it to your advantage. Kailey Rooke, karmelean, and now a possibly unethical karma-for-hire, has spent the past year jumping from project to project without any real hope for salvation. With repercussions from her actions at every turn, she discovers that as time goes on, she loses a bit more of herself to that which feeds on her anguish--that which is thriving inside her own body.

When a new contract to find a missing girl arises, Kailey attempts to put her past and its associated problems on the back burner, but she soon finds out that treachery and deceit lie shortly ahead in Golden Dunes, only giving face to new problems, with one leading right back to her childhood past.

She struggles to complete her contract as her own life teeters on a fulcrum, constantly tipping according to karma’s whim. How long will she keep her balance? Which way will she fall?






Shadow Touched (Shadow Roamer #1) by Lilou Roux

They are the shadows.
They are the inbetween…neither day nor night but existing in both.
They guard and fight to keep the two worlds and their creatures apart.



Stella has always had a weakness for the dark so much so that she craves it like her next breath. While her friends would laugh at her weird moods, she has never felt anything more invigorating than sitting in lonely darkness. But one night, as restlessness strikes again, she finds herself face to face with the less peaceful facet night has to offer…

Making sure that humans stay to the light and darker creatures to the night, is a job he revels in. Until he meets Stella. Nero has never met a woman like her and soon realizes why: she is a Halfling; half shadow and half human, and an evidence of illicit interactions that is usually destroyed at birth, if not before. Nero knows the rules all too well but forbidden desire runs hot and before he knows it he pleads the King for four weeks.
Four weeks in which he has to train her.
Four weeks to show them that there is enough shadow inside of her…so that she may live.

Itchy Feet...

or longing for the unknown.

I know my blog has been quite silent for a while - except for announcing giveaways - and here's the reason why: I'm moving to Ireland!
I've been planning and organizing for the last few weeks. My life has gone through quite some changes and I've decided that Ireland would be the best place for me to start over. Besides, what author wouldn't jump at the idea? I mean, come on, castle ruins, green hills, good whiskey and music. Oh, and not to forget fairies and leprechauns. Do I need to say more?

:)

Well, I'm curious to see how many of the clich├ęs will turn out to be true...

Tome Tender about Ivory Guard:
"Natalie Herzer is a highly creative and imaginative author. When she said she was introducing a new series, I had to be there.The Ivory Guard's originality blew me away...
