The Devil's Beauty by Airicka Phoenix - Review

Title: The Devil’s Beauty
Author: Airicka Phoenix
Genre: Dark Contemporary Romance
Expected Release Date: July 19, 2016
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR
Blurb:
Dimitri Tasarov has never had a choice in what he was. From infancy, he had been raised with the knowledge that he was a monster, an unlovable creature without a soul, until a single act of kindness threw his entire world into a tailspin. 
Ava Emerson had always led a reluctantly sheltered existence. Friendship was a luxury that came with questions she couldn’t afford to answer. 
They were an unlikely pair. He lived behind his mask and his roses, and she lived behind her secrets, yet they shared a bond that could get them killed if anyone ever found out. 
Times were changing. The city was in turmoil. The weak were unprotected and someone needed to make a stand. But Dimitri wasn’t the only one with eyes on the north, or Ava, and they will stop at nothing to claim them both. 
Can Dimitri keep Ava safe, or will the devil fall?
Ms Phoenix's return to the literary world couldn't come soon enough! Her latest installment doesn't disappoint at all. In fact, it excites and it arouses. I love this woman's descriptive words and her writing. I live for it. She makes you feel every breath the character's live. I don't normally read anything of this genre, but this i loved. It is dark yes, but not completely R rated. So if you are not a fan of the dark and twisted this genre usually promotes, i say give The Devil's Beauty a try. 5/5 stars.


Airicka Phoenix lives in a world where unicorns, fairies and mermaids run amok through her home on a daily basis. When she's not chasing after pixies and rounding up imps, also known as her four children, she can be found conjuring imaginary friends to play with. Airicka is the prolific author of over eighteen novels for those who crave strong, female leads, sexy alpha heroes and out of control desires. She's a multi genre author who writes young adult, new adult and adult contemporary and paranormal romance.

Robby broke the silence that followed. “What just happened?”
The buzz had regained through the room. Curiosity punctuated with questions and glances at Ava that she ignored.
“I need to go,” she whispered to no one in particular.
But she grabbed Robby’s hand and dragged him along with her through the maze of rooms, down the seemingly endless corridors. Her heels clacked in sync with the tempo of her pounding heart. It was his turn to run to keep up.
“Ava, what—?”
“Don’t ask questions,” she warned him. “Promise me.”
Robby frowned. “But what—?”
She skidded to a halt and faced him, her chest rising and falling rapidly against the front of her dress. “I’m about to trust you with the most important thing in my life, the biggest secret I have ever kept, and I am trusting you because you are my best friend and I need your help.”
The crease between his brows deepened. More lines appeared at the corners of his mouth. His gaze shot past her to the hallway leading to John Paul’s office, then back down to her.
“Tell me who that was first.”
His hand slipped from her grasp. She took a step back and his eyes narrowed.
“I can’t. I can’t tell you anything.”
“But you want me to trust you.” It wasn’t a question.
Ava nodded. “Yes.”

Savage Things by Callie Hart - Cover reveal

I have the pleasure of sharing my friend Callie Hart's new cover on the blog today. It's gorgeous if i may say so myself.

Zeth

At the eye of a violent storm, everything is calm. It’s only when the storm shifts that your life explodes into chaos. 

The $#*& is finally about to hit the fan for Zeth. After months of blissful quiet, the wolves are at his door, teeth bared and snarling, baying for blood, and the sinister elements of the Seattle underground are closing in tight. In other words, things are about to get baReal fucking bad.
d.

Zeth Mayfair isn’t your average criminal, though. 

If the New York mob wants his allegiance, they’re gonna have to force him to submit. If the cops want his ass in chains, they’re gonna have to catch him first. 

He’ll kill the wolves. He’ll ride out the storm. He’ll make his enemies suffer. Zeth Mayfair is about to crown himself ruler of the city, and fuck anyone who dares to take on the king.

They will obey, or they will fall. 

The choice is theirs.


Sloane

Death is a bitch. 

Sloane Romera sees death every day, looks it square in the eye, and she does not flinch. When Mason Reeves brings his little sister into St. Peter’s emergency room, a dark cloud hangs over the kid—one Sloane recognizes all too well. Millie is gravely ill, but it's not too late. Sloane's determined to do everything in her power to help her, regardless of the cost, regardless of how many rules she must break in the process. 

Mason’s struck a deal with the devil, though. A deal that has painted a huge target on Sloane’s back. There’s every chance she’ll be dead by morning, and the man she loves might not be able to save her this time.

If there’s one thing Sloane knows, it’s that you can’t cheat death. When the Grim Reaper demands a life, a life must be given. Bargaining won’t work. Begging is futile. 

A life for a life. 

The debt must be paid in full.

When Scarlett was a little girl she never dreamed she would one day be the one to rule the entire Nephilim world.
Now as an adult, her nightmares are making up for lost time.

Afraid for her future child’s life, Scarlett makes a choice that could change everything forever.
After a heartbreaking sacrifice is made,
Scarlett never thought she would ever taste darkness, but this time she can’t escape.
Especially when her son is fated to rule the underworld.


In the epic finale to the bestselling Legend of the Archangel series, will the world burn in heavenly fire or be saved by the girl who was fated to rule it all?


EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK AT THE CHRONICLES OF HEART AND SOUL!!!

Scarlett stood on the edge of the Realm of Fire and looked down at the world she now ruled. She was the new queen, the new leader of the Nephilim. Lucifer was dead and with Abraham out of commission… she needed a new leader for the demons too. A new leader for the dead. She felt a presence behind her. She turned and came face to face with her soulmate. She smiled and placed a hand over his heart and the other on her pregnant belly A deep voice filled her head. ”Your son is mine.”. She knew who would be perfect for the job.

Scarlett sat up gasping for air. She pushed her hand through her hair and threw her legs over the side of the bed. She tried to process what she had just seen. No, she knew what she had just seen. It had been something that had haunted her for quite a while. It was her secret. This dream was telling her something. The bed moved and the sheets rustled and Scarlett froze. She had to tell him. How could she keep this from him? How was he going to react when she told him God wanted her baby to be the new leader of the Realm of Death? There was no way a secret that big could sit still inside her heart. It would poison her. It would kill her.
“What’s going on, Scar?”
She remembered what she had been told in the Realm of Fire when she visited with her father some months ago.
No, she couldn’t keep this from him. She turned around and met his gaze.
“I need to tell you something.”
Now was the time to tell him everything. She would leave nothing out.

Six months earlier

“Do I have to do this?” Scarlett asked as she walked into the office in nothing but a grey fluffy bathrobe. Dyston turned to her and smirked holding out his hand. She stepped into his embrace.
“Yes. Don’t worry. I’ll be right here with you. I have to go through the same torture too.” The door creaked opened then and Beth glided in, her long black dress swishing behind her.
“Oh, good. Scarlett, you’re here. Put this on.” From behind her back, Beth produced a shimmery copper-coloured dress. Where had it come from?
“Uh, sure.” Scarlett took the dress reluctantly and made her way behind a partition that had been set up in the corner of the room. Her hair and makeup had already been done by Kat and Emer. They loved nothing more than to do makeovers on their stubborn friend. All that was left was to put on the dress she held on to.
Who’s idea was it to sit for a portrait? Oh, that’s right. Her soulmate’s mother aka the president of the entire freaking Nephilim world. Beth was going to wait to get her two sons and their soulmates immortalised in paint wait until after the mission she was about to send them on, but she had no idea what would happen. Scarlett had agreed only to ease her mind. Besides, she may not come back. She slipped on the beautiful gown and kitten heels and came out from behind the partition. Dyston stood near the plain dark backdrop the artist had set up, and when he saw Scarlett his eyes lit up. They also glimmered with amusement. Scarlett blushed. She mouthed, “Shut up.” And walked over by Beth to wait her turn. The door creaked open again she soon felt a presence at her shoulder. She turned see the eldest Blackbell beside her.
“I wonder if the artist will be able to capture the particular quirk that is Dyston’s arseholeness. It’s fairly clear.” Smirking I looked to Dyston as he flipped his brother the bird.
“I heard that. In fact I can everything you say, Brother. Your voice is so damn obnoxious.”
“Whatever you say, little brother.” Lakyn turned to Scarlett again. She met his gaze and smiled. It wasn’t so long ago that she hated Lakyn, but since reuniting with Rachael and Eden, he had become a better person. He had really grown on her.
“Is Eden going to have her portrait done too?” she asked.
“I suppose so. Knowing Eden, though, she’ll reply with a few choice words at the suggestion.”
“Ah, like father, like daughter.”
“Hey, I’m a new man now. I’m not out to kill you.” He gave her a smile that hurt her heart and brought tears to her eyes. “You’re family.”
When it was Scarlett’s turn to pose for her portrait, she stood where Dyston had. The artist asked her to sit on a stool. When she sat down she stared over at Dyston and Lakyn. Rachael had joined them and so had Beth. She looked at her family and couldn’t help but smile. She was happy she knew who she was now. She had come so far.
She would do anything for family.
