Exclusive Excerpt:


"Do you think you'll ever get over football players?" Kelly asked me as the two of us strolled through the Meat Packing District of New York City.

"Huh?" I asked, barely paying my ditsy friend any attention whatsoever. I had found over the years that this was usually the best way to deal with Kelly. If you weren't in the mood to answer her silly questions, you could simply ignore them until she became distracted and moved onto something else.

"Football players. Like, obviously they are straight-up gorgeous, but... but I don't know? Do you think one day we'll look back at all of this as a waste?"

Despite myself, I suddenly pulled up and turned back to look at my friend. As I did so, I had to dodge out of the way of two women rushing past me like their butts were on fire. This in turn resulted in my heel twisting in, losing my balance and having to grab onto Kelly for support. This chain of events nearly sent the two of us crashing to the ground.

"What are you doing!" Kelly screeched as she stumbled back, trying her best to not fall flat on her face.

"Me?!" Finding my feet again, I let go of Kelly. Then, having smoothed my dress and my hair back down, I turned on my friend, hands on my hips, eyebrow raised. "What about you? What's the matter with you, asking questions like that? And tonight, of all nights?"

"I dunno?" Kelly shrugged as she looked away. "Just a thought."

"God, you're lucky you're pretty," I clicked my tongue and shook my head. "Now come on, enough of that negativity. There's a big black football player waiting for me, and if I'm even a minute late... well, he's just going to have to wait a little longer." I gave Kelly a wink, turned on my heel, and continued my way down the street.

It was a Saturday night in New York City, and that could only mean one thing – that my best friend Kelly and I were just about to hit the town, paint it red, and leave a trail of broken hearts and horny men in our wake. To further add to this certainty, it was June, so my birthday was just around the corner. As I was going to be busy on the actual night, I had nominated this night to celebrate. And I intended on celebrating it to its full worth. I mean, how often did a girl turn twenty-seven?

The only thing that was keeping me down on a night that should have otherwise been filled with nothing but drunken debauchery was the current attitude of my partner in crime, Kelly. With her dark black hair, slender yet curvy figure, and big beautiful eyes that made her look like a puppy dog in heat, she was usually rowdier than I was when it came to going out. But tonight, she had been... well, she just wasn't herself.

From Harper Voyager...




Khan has created a rich, well-crafted world that will appeal to readers of S.A. Chakraborty’s The City of Brass (2017) or Erika Johansen’s The Queen of the Tearling -- Booklist

The second novel in Ausma Zehanat Khan’s powerful epic fantasy quartet, a series that lies "somewhere between N. K. Jemisin and George R. R. Martin" (Saladin Ahmed), in which a powerful band of women must use their magic to defeat an oppressive dark regime.

To fight against the cruel and superstitious patriarchy known as the Talisman, members of the resistance group known as the Companions of Hira have risked their lives in a failed attempt to procure the Bloodprint—a dangerous text that may hold the secret to overthrowing the terrifying regime. Now, with their plans in ashes, the Companions of Hira have scattered, and the lives of two brave women at the center of the plot—Arian and Sinnia—face unprecedented danger.

Yet a spark of hope flickers in the darkness—the Bloodprint has survived. It is hidden in Ashfall, the seat of Rukh, the Black Khan, whose court is ruled by intrigue and conspiracy. Treacherous enemies ruthlessly maneuver for power behind the throne, including the autocratic Grand Vizier; the deadly and secretive Assassin; the Khan’s deposed half-brother; and the commander of Ashfall’s army, who is also Rukh’s oldest friend.

The Companions of Hira must somehow reunite, break through Talisman lines, and infiltrate Ashfall. A master of treachery himself, the Black Khan joins forces with these powerful women to manipulate them for his own ends. But as Ashfall comes under siege, he is forced to make a deadly calculation . . . one that could cause irrevocable damage to the Companions and their fight for freedom.

The only thing about me that’s a size zero is the filter on my mouth. I’ve got a big personality, a big rack, and a big number on the scale. And I’m perfectly fine with that.

But when some random guy suggests I might not be eating alone if I’d ordered a salad instead of a hamburger I’m shocked silent, which is a feat, trust me.

That brings us to one sexy fireman named Frankie Hartigan. He’s hot. He’s funny… And he’s just apologized for being late for our “date” then glared at the fat-shaming jerk. Next thing I know, he’s sitting down and ordering himself dinner.

I have no problem telling him I don’t need a pity date… unless of course it’s to my high school reunion next week. Oops where did that last bit come from? And what do I do now that he’s said yes?!

Because this is no make-over story, and I think Frankie is using me for something. I just have to figure out what…



 Teaser...

"Frankie, you're one of the best lays in Waterbury, all us girls agree."
His ego grew two sizes before the second part of her declaration to registered.  "You talk about me?  All of you together like that?"  Comparing notes?  Chicks did that? (Kindle location 127)

This one looks good and I'm just starting but I'm excited to read it.

Excerpt:

“I’m sending you to get this artifact, Dorian. We’re no’ thieves. Unless we have no other choice. I’d like to see if you can buy it from the mortal first. If that doesna work, then get it any way you can.”
Dorian watched as Con turned on his heel and walked from the cavern. He might not have been involved in the many battles or daily machinations of the ongoing conflicts with their enemies, but that didn’t mean Dorian hadn’t felt the anger and desolation when his brethren had lost or the contentment and delight when they won.
In every word Con uttered while detailing everything, Dorian perceived his worry, his unease. But more than that, Dorian felt the fear that ran through Dreagan at their new nemesis.
Whoever this band of Dark and Light Fae and drough and mie Druid, their first strike had been substantial. The ramifications of the Kings touching the wooden dragon still caused ripples, and likely would for some time.
Dorian rolled his shoulders. His muscles were stiff from his time sleeping. Whether in dragon or human form, he needed to remember who he was.
He’d be happy to remain in his true form forever, but his King called for him. And that meant Dorian was going to have to interact with the very beings he wanted to wipe from the realm.
Slowly, he walked to the water. His enhanced eyesight didn’t need the aid of any light as he peered over the edge to look at himself.
As soon as he saw his face, he cringed and jerked back. He wasn’t prepared for this. But there wasn’t time for him to get ready.
Dorian blew out a breath. The last time he had been outside his mountain was after he watched his dragons cross the dragon bridge to a new realm and helped to bind Ulrik’s magic.
He’d been inconsolable, his world shattered in the space of a heartbeat. Everything he’d loved, everything he’d lived for had been taken from him. Viciously. Cruelly.
Ruthlessly.
Con had brought him to his mountain because Con knew if Dorian was left alone that he would finish what Ulrik had begun.
There wasn’t a day that went by that Dorian didn’t dream of his life before the humans.
Or plot their demise.
Now Con wanted him out in the world. Dorian would get what was needed to battle their new foes, but every chance he got, he would take out a mortal.
They didn’t belong on this realm. It wasn’t theirs. It belonged to the dragons.
And the dragons would take it back.
Soon. Very soon.

BOOK TRAILER

---------------------



I've really enjoyed this series but I was thinking while I read this one, what if I didn't know this world.  No problem.  The author does a great job of making a complex world clear for a taste of the Dark Kings world while telling a great story about Dorian and Alexandra.  

I love 1001 Dark Nights novellas!  They're such a great way to check out a series without committing to one.  And while I always enjoy them, this one did a better job than most of entertaining me.  There's just so much packed into a novella.

We know nothing about Dorian in this series.  He's been sleeping in his mountain through the first 13 books.  So he's a great choice for this book.  He is woken by Con to complete an important mission.  He has to fight his hatred for humans and get the job done.  But I was very pleased with how he dealt with it and how much personal growth happens for this character.  

Of course, Alexandra is the reason for that growth.  I love her.  She's reserved despite being a very public figure.  She craves living in a quiet place where she isn't the center of everyone's notice.  The need for bodyguards and the attempts on her life is certainly something she could do without.  And her past boyfriend was a total nightmare.  No wonder she doesn't date.  But when Dorian wins the auction for a date with her, her life changes forever. 

The romance is fast and scorching.  It didn't feel rushed to me, just right actually.  And so smoking hot.  They are two halves of a whole.  It's clear and I loved it.  When the shocking climax comes, I felt the pain for both of them.  But the story wasn't done.  The author does a great job of giving a short summary of the world building for the series and takes things a step further.  It had me wanting to go back and read more from this series.  

I adore this author and I especially love this world.  This particular novella does such a great job of giving readers a delicious taste of this dragon world.  If you've ever wanted to read this series, this is a great place to decide.


                                             

Time to go back and read the ones I'm behind on.  Adore this series.

True North by L.E. Sterling


It’s not you…it’s your DNA.

Abandoned by her family in Plague-ridden Dominion City, eighteen-year-old Lucy Fox has no choice but to rely upon the kindness of the True Borns, a renegade group of genetically enhanced humans, to save her twin sister, Margot.

But Nolan Storm, their mysterious leader, has his own agenda. When Storm backtracks on his promise to rescue Margot, Lucy takes her fate into her own hands and sets off for Russia with her True Born bodyguard and maybe-something-more, the lethal yet beautiful Jared Price. In Russia, there’s been whispered rumors of Plague Cure.

While Lucy fights her magnetic attraction to Jared, anxious that his loyalty to Storm will hurt her chances of finding her sister, they quickly discover that not all is as it appears…and discovering the secrets contained in the Fox sisters’ blood before they wind up dead is just the beginning.

As they say in Dominion, sometimes it’s not you…it’s your DNA.




True Storm by L.E. Sterling


Lucy’s twin sister, Margot, may be safely back with her—but all is not well in Plague-ravaged Dominion City. The Watchers have come out of hiding, spreading chaos and death throughout the city, and suddenly Lucy finds herself under pressure to choose her future: does it lie with her handsome new friend, Alastair; her guardian, the enigmatic True Born leader Nolan Storm; or the man who makes her heart trip, her savage True Born bodyguard Jared Price?

But while Lucy ponders her path, fate has other plans. Betrayal is a cruel lesson, and the Fox sisters can hardly believe who is behind the plot against them. To survive this deadly game of politics, Lucy is forced to agree to a marriage of convenience. But is the DNA of her will stronger than the forces opposing her? Can she turn the tide against the oncoming storm??

As they say in Dominion, can rogue genes ever have a happy ending?
