Synopsis:

Ever since Alexis Newman was young she knew her path in life, but to get to the top you have to start from the bottom. With no man in her life she sets out with her best friend to dance her frustrations away.

Catching the eye of the crusaders mc resident assassin was definitely not in her life plans.

That all changes when he spots her across the club. She sparks something in him. Ice cold Cobra starts wondering whether he can have a happily ever after but at what cost?

Setting his sight on love was not his life plan.

With war brewing between the crusaders and their rivals the hell riders there is danger lurking around every corner. Will Cobra bring Alexis to the dark side? Or walk away forever?

Decision time. Head or heart? Life, love or death?

Cover Reveal for my debut Novel

SeveriFrontCover1LR

Release Date: April 7th

Publisher: Big World Network

Genre: YA Fantasy/Drama

Synopsis

In a time of peace and treaties, the five kingdoms of Severi lay unguarded and open to the dark hearts of man. Terdune, a neighboring land that had been at constant war with Severi, was defeated over twenty years ago. All threats were eradicated and its lands left without a ruler. Now a new evil reigns in Terdune and slowly makes its way to its adjacent sister.

When Edwin’s village is attacked, he is forced to travel halfway across the second kingdom to the King’s Hold. Along the way he must learn the true power of the gifts that were bestowed upon him and discover the meaning of the dreaded fate attached to them.

FiveKingdomsCover5x8_Preview

Excerpt

Black smoke rose up from the tall trees, like menacing claws slashing out at the sun before melting into the sky. Edwin noticed the change of attention and he too glanced back, catching the significance of the smoke. Where there was that much smoke there was fire, and where there was fire there was trouble. Edwin dashed towards his village, the interest in the white horse and mysterious rider replaced by the thought of his mother and father.

Hooves faded behind him and disappeared as screams started to branch out towards him from ahead. Edwin forced his legs to move faster, the sword on his side swaying and doing little to provide comfort. Tree branches lashed out at him, cutting his cheek and tugging at his clothes as he stumbled out of the woods. His legs almost gave way as his eyes fell on the flames blazing on the roofs of several cabins located at the edge of their village.

He rushed past several homes, towards the direction of his house and his parents. A scream to his left cut through the thumping in his ears, and Edwin unsheathed his sword. He swung it, blocking the sword about to slice a woman through. He braced himself against the impact and punched the attacker across the face. The man stumbled for a brief moment, and Edwin used it to snatch the attacker’s sword from his grasp. The man regained his footing and purpose, but not quickly enough, as Edwin ran him through with the newly acquired sword.

The man fell to the ground in a heap of blood and black. More screams had Edwin moving past slain villagers and a few dead men in black. He fought back the shock surging through his body at the realization of killing someone for the first time. He stumbled to his knees and hurled his breakfast, his mother’s eggs coming out as a yellow muck.

He wiped his lips with the back of his sleeve and ran towards home, hoping his parents were still alive. Unseen to Edwin, a swirl of blackness moved from under the dead man and followed him, dashing from one shadow to the next. It grew in size, a part of it splitting and heading towards the edge of the village in the direction where the attack had first started.

RAFE - COVER NEW_smaller

SYNOPSIS:

His name is Rafaele Vestri, Rafe to his friends.

He?s tall, strong, handsome. Distant. He often comes to the caf? where I work, but we don?t talk much. He looks at me, though. Stares at me, his gaze heated, and I can?t help but stare back. I want him, I won?t deny it. I?ve never seen anyone that beautiful, anyone that powerful, in my life.

But he?s growing more withdrawn by the day. Something?s up, and he won?t tell. I know about his past ? the murder of his family when he was fifteen. I can imagine how much it must have cost him. So much violence contained in that strong body, waiting to be unleashed. What is he seeking? What is he training so hard for? Why is looking at me like he?s dying to touch me, but won?t dare?

Even as I try to stop thinking about him, get interested in other boys, I realize I can?t. I?m caught, body and soul, just like that. And I tell myself, Megan, girl? What have you gotten yourself into this time?

This is book 5 in the Inked Brotherhood series which started with Asher. It is a stand-alone work. No cliffhanger.

The expected publication date is end March/beginning April 2015, on all of your favorite e-book websites.

EXCERPT:

I?m staring at Rafe?s hand. Big, strong, callused. A scar runs from his thumb to the index finger.

He?s looking at me, waiting. What does he want?

I lift my hand, place it in his. It fits on his palm, smaller, darker, thinner. He seems as entranced by the contrast as I am. His fingers slowly curl, closing around mine. His lips part, but no sound comes from his mouth, and his gaze remains fixed on our entwined hands, pale lashes hiding the gold of his eyes.

Now I?m the one caught, transfixed. His mouth looks soft, vulnerable, at odds with his strong, angular features and the broad set of his shoulders. The need to touch his face is overwhelming, and I step closer, so close I can sense his scent. Not a cologne, but the deep scent of his skin, like musk and warm metal. I can see the rise and fall of his chest underneath the black Deathmoth T-shirt he?s wearing under his open jacket, see the outline of his strong pecs.

We?re standing so close our breaths mingle, and our bodies touch in places as we shift, feathery brushes that send fire across my skin, into my belly, making me ache. He places his hands on my waist and I grip his thick, sinewy forearms. My stomach drops as if I?m standing at the edge of a precipice, on the edge of a moment that can change everything.

What?s happening? It?s as if in the hollow darkness, the barrier between us is crumbling, the wall he?s set between himself and the world is falling.

His hands tighten on my hipbones and his lashes lift, his gaze moving to my mouth. His breathing is ragged. He tugs me against him, his fingertips digging painfully into my flesh, his arms flexing with barely controlled strength.

His arousal presses into my stomach, hot and thick, caught sideways in his jeans.

My mind fills up with static. Rafe wants me. There?s the solid proof of his desire. The heated gaze I?ve felt so often on me is translated into a physical reaction, and it makes me feel so hot I might burst into flames. He?s so handsome, I can?t help myself. I want to stroke his square jaw, drag my fingertips over the golden stubble on his cheeks, kiss those damnable dimples.

I whimper, the sound coming from deep inside me, and he freezes, goes so still I?m not even sure he?s breathing.

Then he jerks back, releases me so fast I?m left reeling.

?Fuck,? he hisses. He buries his fingers in his short blond hair, pulls, his mouth now hard like the rest of him, pressed into a flat line. ?This is a mistake.?

A knot is gathering in my throat, in my chest, cutting off air.

I want to be mad at him, but his hands are trembling, and his amber eyes so full of pain I forget my anger before it even forms. He?s like mist, here and suddenly gone, lost into thin air. I have to touch him, touch his bare skin, prove he?s real.

?Wait.? I lift my hand to his face, fingertips skimming over the smooth skin of his cheekbone. Warm. Satin soft.

A pang goes through my chest, an ache that feels too much like sorrow, and I?m not sure if it?s mine or his.

He jerks away, his eyes wide on his pale face. He reaches up, his hand hovering over the spot I touched. Then he turns and rushes off into the crowd.

My hand is still hovering in midair. I don?t know for how long I stand there, staring at my splayed fingers, trying to figure out what happened. Or maybe trying to find another explanation for his reaction, desperate for him to be different to any other handsome, arrogant guy. Maybe I imagined the pain in his gaze ? or maybe that pain is real but doesn?t make a difference. Traumatic past or not, he?s sorry he touched me, sorry he desired me. Big surprise. Why would he desire me, of all girls? There are so many vying for his attention. Girls who have witty, sexy things to say, and who don?t go stiff like cardboard when he touches them.

The thought of him touching other girls shouldn?t hurt quite as much as it does. And this is a bad sign. Very bad sign, Megan, I tell myself and lower my hand that touched him. I feel as if my fingertips are numb, burnt by the feel of his skin.

Praise for Blair C. Babylon’s other books:

“This is why [Blair C. Babylon] is an author to watch!” ~ Booklist (starred review)

 

“I stumbled upon this series a few months ago while searching through e-books for the kindle. Out of all of the books I’ve read, this is by far the best. I have never been the type to read things in installments, but this is the first time I’ve faithfully awaited each new episode release. The story … is great, the characters are believable, and I can never really guess what is going to happen next. What more could you want in a series?” ~Amazon Review

 

“This series just takes my breath away. Breathless!!!! That’s how this book made me feel from beginning to end. It was one of those books I just couldn’t put down until some of my questions were answered. I was constantly on the edge of my seat anxiously hoping it would turn out the way I hoped. I had this same sense of anxious excitement from the very first book of this series and it has not left me yet. This is not your typical cliched novel, where you can tell practically from the first page what is going to happen. Oh no! This book has you waiting with bated breath to see what happens next. I cannot wait for the next book. Ms. Babylon is a genius, who proves every skeptic who says all novels are alike, wrong!” ~Amazon Review

About the Author

USA Today Bestselling Author Blair C. Babylon is the nom de plume of an award-winning author who used to publish literary fiction under another name. Because professional reviews of her literary fiction usually included the caveat that there was too much plot, too many interesting twists, and too much sex, she decided to abandon all literary pretensions, let her freak flag fly, and write intense thrillers and naughty romantic suspense.

Don’t forget to check back on the 23rd of this month to read my book review on this title.
