Book Review: The Medium (Emily Chambers) by CJ Archer

You know when you find an author you enjoy and you want to try all their books?  Well, I have found one of those authors.  C.J. Archer is an amazing writer.  I felt so much while reading her Emily Chambers series, and I loved each book in the series.  The first book below was still free the last time I checked, so bonus!  If you like regency romances with a twist, this just might be the series for you.

I'll be back with more reviews later this week and Blogger Book Fair is coming next week.  I'll be featuring a few authors and will have a giveaway for Elemental Enmity, so stay tuned!

The Medium (Emily Chambers Spirit Medium Trilogy #1)The Medium by C.J. Archer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Loved this book! It had just the right amount of mystery and romance. The paranormal aspect was intriguing. Emily is a relatable character that made me laugh, cringe from embarrassment, and you name the emotion, I probably felt it in this series.

This was a free book on Amazon, and I picked it up on a whim. Once I started reading, I was captivated by the lovely descriptions and the funny protagonist. I like regency books, but this one felt modern in a good way. Emily's emotions were part of what makes the book and the series.

This is a must read for romance readers who love a good adventure. I blew through this series in no time at all. I'm now looking into Ms. Archer's adult titles because I love her style so much.

Happy Reading Everyone!

Horizon is HERE!!!!

Hello my lovely people!  I'm excited to announce that Horizon is now available on Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes and Noble!

Here is the Blurb:

Evil has many faces—unfortunately, Rayla Tate has seen them all, or so she thinks.  Since she learned she was an Elemental, she has been hunted for her power.  But Rayla hasn’t met her greatest foe; she hasn’t seen true evil…yet.
Rayla betrayed her bondmate to be with the man she loves.  Now that she has Heath at her side, she is ready to face the fae council and move on with her life.  Too bad Zach has other ideas.  He’s not about to give Rayla up just because his sister got in the way.  He will find Rayla and prove to her that he is the man she is meant to be with, even if he has to face the monsters of the dark realms to do it.
Despite her growing feelings for Heath, with every passing day her body gives in to her bond with Zach.  Rayla must leave the dark realms or risk losing control of her mind and ultimately her power.  Once back in Lombarda, she discovers a secret about her origins that could shake the foundations of the world, both fae and human.  There is more at stake than who she is bound to.  The Order and the fae both want control of the same thing, and this time it is not her.
Rayla must unite with unlikely allies to destroy the evil plaguing Faeresia.  For if she refuses, she will succumb to a compulsion she never could have anticipated and plunge the world and those she loves into darkness or utter oblivion.

There are a few things you should know about Horizon.  First it should have been two books, but I couldn't do that to you, and second it is quite a bit longer than the other books in the series.  I'm really pleased with the way it turned out and I hope you are too.

This has been an amazing experience and I have bitter-sweet emotions about closing this series.  It's now time for me to move on from Rayla's journey, but I am in no way done with my Elemental world.  You will see both prequels and sequels to this storyline, and some from your favorite characters.

My next project is Netherworld and I have included a long excerpt at the end of Horizon for you.  I'm hoping to get Dreamscape, the first Netherworld book up in early summer, keeping fingers crossed.  This time around I'm not going to tell you a publishing date until I'm sure I can make that.

I hate changing things on you guys, so I will try my best to stick to schedules.  I'm so excited to explore this new world.  It is amazing and so freaking fun, I just can't even tell you.

So, without further delay, here are the links for Horizon.

Thank you so much for following me and this series!  You are the best readers a writer could hope for!

Cover Reveal--Come, the Dark by Rebecca Hamilton

I'm so excited for this one!  I loved the Forever Girl.

The time has come to reveal the cover for Come, the Dark! You may have seen some placeholder covers for this one floating around the web before today, but finally you get to see the real deal and learn more about the book!

Come, the Dark

to be release Winter of 2013

"Whatever you do, fight." 

  A Rose by any other name would smell just as sweet.

Rose was just a teenage girl carrying her father’s baby. A teenage girl who desperately wanted to escape. Womanhood in Salem, Massachusetts 1692 wasn’t what she had in mind.
As Rose attempts to save her newborn daughter, Anna, from both her father and the dark spirits that haunt her life, she is thrust from Georgia, 1962, into the start of Salem’s infamous witch trials, leaving her daughter hopelessly out of reach. Here, the townsfolk call her Abigail, while a strange man in the woods calls her by the name she gave herself as a child: Cordovae. A name she's never shared with anyone else and no one else could have possibly known about.
All she wants is to find her way back to her daughter . . . but going back isn’t an option. Not until she faces certain death to stabilize the dark spirits that plague Salem before they possess the town. If she doesn’t move them in time, not only will human civilization be destroyed, but she’ll be forever trapped in this strange new place, unable to see her daughter ever again.
Even if she can complete the task in time to return home to save her daughter, there’s still one problem: she’s falling in love with a man who can’t return with her. Achieving her goals will leave her forced to choose between the only man who’s never betrayed her and a daughter she can’t quite remember but will never forget.
A heart-wrenching tale of a mother’s love for her daughter, this romantic paranormal fantasy underlines the depravity of both historical and modern society while capturing the essence of sacrifice and devotion.
All those signed up for release notification will automatically be entered to win a free copy of the book!
