Bestseller For A Day- "Fierce Dawn" by Amber Scott

This book- the latest of Scott's Realm novels- hooked my interest immediately. The compelling story begins with two sisters arguing over their mother’s prophetic rants in a buried journal. Is their mother insane, or does she foresee an all-too-real danger for her daughters?

Mysteries abound in this thrilling erotic tale. Sadie Graves’ erotic dreams of a winged protector soon inspire her to paint his portrait again and again. Strangely enough, the man in her dreams resembles someone she’s seen in the library where she volunteers- a handsome, compelling man who seems to be following her. Is she inheriting her mother’s mania, or does he have a secret message meant only for her?

After a frightening encounter with a shape-shifter who senses her true nature as a changeling, Sadie begins to fear for her sanity. One of her greatest challenges lies in hiding her sensuous dreams and erotic paintings from her sister, and her therapist- trying to maintain the façade that everything is normal. Her world collides with that of the immortals when Sadie and her cousin are drugged at a club. The mysterious winged man, Elijah, proves himself to be a valiant protector indeed.

The seekers’ quest to find Elijah’s brother can be aided by this strange and powerful mortal girl- but at what cost to Sadie’s sanity? Can she withstand the transformation and live out her destiny as a messenger between the worlds? I enjoyed the tense pacing of this novel, and the plot twists and turns kept me guessing. Suspense and sensuality intertwine as Elijah and Sadie face their forbidden feelings for each other and dodge dangers from humans and immortals alike. Take a chance on this one- you won't regret it!

Fierce Dawn Blurb and Excerpt...

Snarling teeth, glowing eyes. Someone--something--is after Sadie Graves.

Elijah Stokes, the man who haunts her dreams, enters her reality claiming she’s transforming into a changeling--not quite immortal but no longer human.

Battle lines are drawn and blood spills as the two fight not only for Sadie’s life, but for all of mankind's as well.

He stepped closer, so close he could see thin gold flecks in her sky blue eyes. “Do you remember the night something chased you past the park?”

Her eyes widened. She perceptibly swallowed. “A werewolf?”

“No,” Elijah said, not wanting to correct the mortal term and create even more confusion. “I thought she was a shapeshifter, but she claimed to be a changeling. And that you are, too.”

“It doesn’t sound like you’re sure I am.”

“I wasn’t. Until now. The changeling has been following you. I can’t get a strong enough trace to hunt her again.”

“She wants me dead?”

“I don’t think so, but she wants something. She’s waiting, watching.”
Her hand went to her throat but her gaze hardened. “That’s why you want me to come with you?”

“Yes,” Elijah said. “There are immortals who would kill you just to keep the realms pure. Half-breeds aren’t tolerated in the immortal realm. They’re seen as inferior, tainted perfection by many. A changeling would be far worse. Right or wrong, your existence threatens both realms. The fact that I’m not the only one who knows you are transforming puts you in higher danger.”

She threw her hands up and started yanking drawers open, tossing clothes aside. Impatient but not angry.

He took in her every move, listened to the even keel of her vibration. She sounded resolved. Elijah’s worries subsided. She was far sturdier than he’d first assumed.

She paused but didn’t face him. “And?”

“And there is a faction—The Illeautians—who consider humankind parasitic. They want the human realm destroyed. If humans start evolving….”

She pulled off her tee. The smooth bare skin on her back, two crescent shaped scars at her shoulders, filled his vision.

Elijah couldn’t look away as she strapped a bra around her slender ribcage and put her arms through the straps. His gaze caressed the slope of her back. Two hollows above her ass peaked out from her bottoms. His imagination filled in what he could not see. His body tightened against his will. He had no business wanting a mortal. Even a changeling one. Because a part of her might always be human. Humans died. Immortals lived.

“If you’re right and I’m not going to be human anymore, why would anyone care what I am?” She brought a snug blue shirt over her head then glanced meaningfully over her shoulder.

He should turn around, give her privacy. “Because, what are realm lines for if humans are evolving? Mortals live, they die, they do not become immortal. In human terms, it could be seen as the first stages of Armageddon. Only this wouldn’t be a war between Heaven and Hell.”

Stolen Dreams by Stacey Kennedy:

Tess Jennings has the ability to see and talk to spirits. On a daily basis, they harass and annoy her to save their souls. Sometimes she helps, other times she ignores them, but one ghost will give her no choice. Kipp McGowan, a cop with the Memphis Police Department, uses his ghostly charms to gain her attention and forces her to expose herself to his partner.

As she’s pulled into the five year old cold case of Hannah Reid she wants no part of, she finds herself in more than one precarious situation. But that’s the least of her worries―Tess begins to have a serious problem on her hands. Kipp might be dead, but he’s drop-dead gorgeous and she’s beginning to forget that he’s a ghost.
Murder and corruption has brought Tess and Kipp together. But as her feelings for Kipp deepen, she suspects she just signed herself up for a one-way ticket to the nut house, and can only hope, straitjackets come in a size four.
