Blurb:

Everything in Porschia Grant’s world was finally normal; the daily routine peppered with moments of happiness, sadness, and monotony. She longs for those moments now, because her entire world has been wrecked, and she didn’t even see it coming.
An evil escaped the underworld, killing someone she loves. It has to die, and she wants to be the one to end it.
But can Porschia live with herself if she takes on the curse she once hated? Will the consequences of her choice crush her?
How will she feel when someone from her past, someone she loved so deeply, enters her life again?

Tage has been guiding his son from the afterlife. He’s always been a part of Seth’s life, even if Porschia didn’t know the extent of his involvement. He’s watched over both of them from afar. Close, but never close enough.
Now they need him, and he’s about to risk everything to show her how much she still means to him.

For some, love never ends and frenzy is forever.

I was beyond thrilled when I found out there was going to be another Frenzy novella!! I absolutely LOVE this series and I wasn’t ready for it to end!!

It is now 16 years later and Saul and Porschia are still in love and surviving after the cure. Tage is gone because he saved her in the end of book five. I was pretty sure Tage was gonna reappear in some form to help Seth….or at least that was my hope!

“How old were you?” She gripped the poker like a weapon, strangling the handle of it.

“Ten.”

Her top teeth raked over the bottom ones. “And you thought I didn’t need to know?”

“It would only have upset you.”

I loved seeing Porschia again and how fierce and strong she is! I loved how she handled herself after everything happened. It was really great to be back with these characters!!

It was poison, racing through veins and vessels. It whispered in my ear to let it free. It was all I could think of.

Rage.

There were so many emotions running through me while reading this!! I was happy, then sad, then mad, then I understood why certain things happened even if I wasn’t happy about it lol. This was a great conclusion to the series! I will miss these characters a lot, and maybe Casey will decide to write a spinoff about Seth down the road!

Keep reading for a sneak snippet of one very angry Porschia Grant …
Surprise lifted her brows.
“I didn’t expect—”
I was in front of her in an instant, backhanding her to the side. She stumbled, grabbing her bleeding lip and staring at me with contempt.
“You didn’t expect me to do what? Protect my family? That was your first mistake.”
She scoffed.
“The second was underestimating me.”

Dates Read: April 12

Blurb:

It’s not easy being a badass Zombie killer. But somebody’s got to do it.

Harrison Parker has hated the same girl for the last ten years.

Hated her and wanted her.

Adela has been nothing but trouble for him since the day they met. They fight constantly. They argue. They can’t stand each other.

But in the secret moments when they think nobody is looking, they also need each other. They heal each other. Sometimes, they even save each other.

When Page goes missing and the Parker family jumps to rescue their favorite sister, Harrison and Adela are forced to team up in an epic battle for survival- both for their lives and their hearts.

Harrison is ready to let Adela go. She’s leaving with Diego anyway.

Unless he can convince her she has a reason to stay…

Love and Decay: Revolution is a Dystopian Romance Novella Series about Zombies, the end of the world and finding someone to share it with. Every episode is approximately 20,000 words long and released every two weeks. Look for Love and Decay: Revolution, Episode Nine coming April 22nd, 2016.

img_1708-1

This is episode eight in the Love and Decay Revolution season. Let me just say…Harrison Parker is totally swoon worthy and I was SO thrilled to find out this episode we would get to be in his head!! In order to understand the true depth of Harrison and Adela’s relationship you will have to have read all previous seasons!

We start with everyone at the Wal-Mart worried about Page and why she hasnt returned yet…where could they be? Did they get caught in the fire? Did they get attacked by the colony? Or feeders?

Everyone is high strung, but Harrison more so because after ten years Diego, the guy Adela loves, is back and wants her to go with him back to Mexico. Harrison and Adela have a very strange relationship…which I think is mainly because he doesn’t wanna show her how he really feels, but I know he doesn’t want her to go with Diego…

I felt every inch of space between us.

Every breath that separated us.

Every atom and electron and charged molecule.

Every mile that stood between us.

Every wall.

Every cruel word.

Every stupid decision.

Harrison finally decides he can’t sit around and deal with the situation with Adela so he decides he’s gonna go and search for Page. Turns out he’s not going alone, which we all knew Hendrix would never allow anyway…well guess who shows up to go…Adela even after many protests from Harrison.

“I see you,” I told her.

Her brows drew down over her cute nose. “What?”

“I see you,” I repeated. “You try to hide your substance. You try to stay out of sight, away from where people will think you’re worth something… that you mean something. But you can’t hide that from me. I see you. I have always seen you.”

This is another great episode!! I love Harrison!! I’m so happy to see how things progressed with Adela! 
This episode had an OMG moment…like fell off the edge of my seat moment!! I need episode nine to see what happens…I can’t handle the stress!! The biggest question is…what will Miller do?

April 22nd can’t come fast enough!!

It’s not easy being a badass Zombie killer. But somebody’s got to do it.

They did it.

They finally made it.

Page Parker and family are finally inside Colony territory and closer to fighting Matthias Allen than ever before.

But first they have to reunite with Luke.

And when they do, he and the Resistance are nothing like they expected. Nothing like what they hoped for or counted on or anticipated.

The Colony is the greater of two evils however and so these two allies must team up to wage a war that will change the landscape of their post-apocalyptic world forever.

A war that is closer than they realize.

img_1708-1

This is episode seven in the Revolution season of Love and Decay!! We start right where we left off at the end of episode six.

Page is having many mixed emotions about seeing Luke again after ten years. They were close as kids but time can definitely change someone. Page is someone much different than she was before. She has high expectations of when she sees Luke again, but will she get the reunion she is expecting or will she get a different kind of reunion…one she isn’t expecting at all?

His breath pushed against the hair at my nape. “It’s good to see you again, friend.”

Emotion finally surfaced, past the shock, beyond the speechless awe. “You too. It’s good to see you again, too.”

Of course it wouldn’t be a love and decay episode without some Feeder action. Page always seems to find herself in the most danger no matter what…this time was no different. This time had my heart pounding anxiously waiting to see if she’d win or if the feeder would…

“Page, no more,” Miller growled against my cheek. “I can’t take any more of those. You’ve got to stop.”

Luke and Page’s minds work in very different ways…ill be very curious to see if this makes them butt heads or if it is an advantage! With the turn of events at the end of this episode things are about to get very interesting!

This series just keeps getting better and better!! I’m very excited to see what Rachel has planned next! How will Luke being back affect Miller and Pages relationship? What is their next step in defeating Matthias? Will everyone survive when the time comes?!

Can’t wait until I can dive into episode eight which is releasing April 8th!

It’s not easy being a badass Zombie killer. But somebody’s got to do it.

Page Parker is on the brink of the fate she’s claimed. With her toes pressed against the Mexican/American border, she’s ready to wage the war she’s been waiting for.

Matthias Allen and the Colony are waiting for her on the other side. She just has to step across.

Only it’s not that simple. She has a family to protect and loved ones to think about. She’s responsible for lives and families. She has a boy at her side willing to fight with her, but Miller is battling darker demons than Zombies and tyrants. There is something inside him that terrifies her… warns her to keep him as far from his dad as she can.

Her life swirls around her in chaos and confusion. But one thing remains clear, Luke is waiting for her. She’s vowed to free the people of her homeland and she cannot go back on that now.

But at what cost?

Will destroying the Colony come at the price of destroying her family?

Destroying Miller?

This is episode six in the Revolution season of Love and Decay!! Sadly we had to wait a month for this one, but makes it so bittersweet now that we have it!!

This one started right where episode five ended! All I have to say is within the first few pages I was laughing…these Parker men *swoon* It made me remember the beginning of the series and how I fell in love with the Parkers!

Nelson nudged him with his elbow and took over. “Page, I know this is confusing, but when a man loves a woman-”

“Oh, my god.”

“Dude,” Hendrix laughed. “You can’t start with that!”

Nelson glared at him. “Because you’re doing such a stellar job?”

They are still with Diego and are about to cross into the States again for the first time in over 10 years!! There first step into America is refreshing…but not for too long.

“You’re too trusting, Page Parker.” He laughed, but I didn’t hear humor in his voice. And when I looked up at him there was a hardness in his dark eyes… a resistance that seemed out of place for the last several days.

This episode was great just like the rest of them! It wouldn’t be Love and Decay without some Feeder action! I love this family and their protectiveness of each other. I also loved seeing Miller’s soft side with Page, plus you could still see the darkness he has been fighting which I pray he can overcome for her!

There are still so many questions that need to be answered…mostly what is going to happen with Page and Miller once Luke is back in the picture? (I’m on Team Miller…at least for now until I see how Luke has changed in the past 10 years) What is going to happen with the colony? Will they be able to defeat Matthias?

I’m anxiously awaiting episode seven which will release March 25th!!

Luc’s relationship and money woes continue in episode 2 of French Kiss for Hire…

Sensitive and sexy Frenchman, Luc Du’mont, is living the American dream. He’s spent the last four years at university on an acting scholarship. Now, with graduation behind him he’s ready to make his big Hollywood splash.

A debut that has to happen before his student visa expires in two months. Otherwise, he’ll be shipped home to France and all of his acting opportunities will sail with him.
But most importantly, he’ll lose any chance at winning blond-bombshell Serena Dawson’s heart. As the sister of his roommate she is strictly off limits. But when Serena approaches Luc for kissing advice, what can Luc say other than pucker up?

The kiss leads to much more than Luc ever imagined. When word gets out about Luc’s lip-locking skills and his unemployment leaves him desperate, Luc finds himself with a new career path: French Kiss for Hire.

Except the only client he wants is the one girl he can’t have.

This is episode two in this series and Luc is still having money problems and trouble finding work.

After his date with Madison his phone keeps ringing non -stop and he doesn’t know any of the people calling. It gets to the point where it’s disrupting his life!

While he’s still struggling to find an acting job he’s about ready to take any kind of job that’s offered to him. Meanwhile, his best friend and room mate has come up with his own plan to help Luc out!

Luc didn’t recognize the website that filled the screen, but he did recognize the older headshot of himself taken last year which was currently displayed at the top of the page. His attention was quickly drawn away by the large-lettered headline above what looked like a personal profile.

“French Kiss For Hire? What is that?” Luc demanded.

These novellas are short and sweet but definitely make you keep coming back for the more!! I’m very intrigued about what will happen next.

Will Luc enjoy being a French Kiss for Hire? Will be be able to ever find an acting job? If not will he get deployed back to France? How with this new “job” affect his chances with Serena?

I can’t wait to find out the answers to these questions in the upcoming episodes!!

This is the first episode in a new novella series written by multiple authors!

We meet Luc Du’Mont who is from France and just graduated college with an acting degree…now to find a job. He’s desperately looking for work because if he hasn’t found it by the end of the summer he’ll be deported back to France where all his acting dreams will disappear.

His room mates sister, Serena, is another reason staying in the states is top priority! She’s strictly off limits though!

His breath caught every time he saw her. With wavy blonde hair captured in a ponytail and eyes greener than the seaside hills around Marseille, Serena Dawson always made him forget what he was supposed to be doing.

He’s struggling with money and is pretty much broke and feels horrible not being able to pay for anything, so desperate times calls for desperate measures…wonder what he’ll do?!
I really enjoyed this first episode!! I loved Luc and I’m very excited to see what will happen in the next episode releasing February 24, 2016.
