Saxson Olaru is one of the select, the few, the elite...

As a ruthless sentinel sworn to protect the ancient Vampyr king and the house of Jadon, he has "HOJ" literally inscribed on his heart: a heart that was tragically broken centuries earlier, when human hunters slayed his mother and Dark Ones murdered his father. Having survived the unthinkable, he never dreamed he would come this close to another human predator, let alone a female pretending to be his destiny.

Kiera and Kyla Sparrow are twin sisters: humans, living very different lives. While Kiera is selfless, clever, and talented, Kyla is dark, duplicitous, and damaged--she belongs to a secret society of vampire-hunters, and she has sworn to destroy as many as she can.
When Saxson's Blood Moon appears in a February sky, and the matching constellation, Cetus the Sea Monster, appears on Kiera's wrist, Kyla knows exactly what it means: The celestial gods have chosen her beautiful sister to be the eternal mate of an immortal vampire--she just doesn't know which one.

And it really doesn't matter.

If Kyla can recreate the sacred emblem on her own inner wrist, she can take Kiera's place and commit the ultimate Blood Betrayal.
When duty, obedience, and honor clash with a deep, gnawing intuition, an honor-bound warrior will be forced to choose between allegiance to the house he loves and the quiet voice within, whispering: "Warning!"  

One wrong move.
One wrong choice.
And all will be lost forever.

"Wow! {Blood Betrayal} is a page-turner, held me gripped from start to finish. Gritty, hard-hitting, but ultimately a story of true love that never gives up...fantastic!" ~ Carole Mortimer (USA Today

Discover the "Extraordinary Storytelling Talents" of Tessa Dawn in her breathtaking, original saga: the Blood Curse Series (Quote by Midwest Book Review)

Just WOW! Betrayal Comes in Many Forms.

In this ninth installment of the Blood Curse Series, Blood Betrayal, we learn about Saxson ... A Sentinel of Dark Moon Vale...he is lethel, intimidating and DROP DEAD GORGEOUS.

His Destiny has her hands full with her own unexpected events. I wanted to hurl my device across the room. I had to step away a few times, thinking... Oh No, she did not just go there... Oh Yes, she did! I LOVE THAT IN A BOOK.

Tessa Dawn never ceases to amaze me. I Love her unique and extraordinary writing skills. Well written, easy to follow, and picturesque.

Each installment is a multilayered, rollercoaster ride of emotion ...with fresh scenes, new dark and gritty twists, and intensely wicked turns so vivid that they threw me for a loop while leaving my mouth agape.

I have read every book in this series and it is the best installment yet. Miss Dawn had to reach deep down inside to write this one... it shows in her brilliant writing style.

Cannot Wait for the next installment.

Meet the Author
Tessa Dawn grew up in Colorado, where she developed a deep affinity for the Rocky Mountains. After graduating with a degree in psychology, she worked for several years in criminal justice and mental health before returning to get her master’s degree in nonprofit management.

Tessa began writing as a child and composed her first full-length novel at the age of eleven. By the time she graduated high-school, she had a banker’s box full of short-stories and novels. Since then, she has published works as diverse as poetry, greeting cards, workbooks for kids with autism, and academic curricula. Her Dark Fantasy/Gothic Romance novels represent her long-desired return to her creative-writing roots and her passionate flair for storytelling. 

Thirteen books later, Tessa now has readers in over 100 countries, and her novels have reached #1 bestselling status, seventeen times. Her personal author-ranking has climbed to #2 in Horror and #11 in both Fantasy and Paranormal, placing her on the Amazon charts next to two of her favorite authors: Stephen King and Sherrilyn Kenyon. 

Tessa currently splits her time between the Colorado suburbs and mountains, but she hopes to one day move to the country where she can own horses and what she considers “the most beautiful creature ever created” -- a German shepherd.

Writing is her bliss.

Planning the perfect wedding can be stressful, even for a seasoned witch. But for a newbie like Leigh Epstein and her coven of zany BFFs, it's more like running a 100-yard dash through a minefield as they prepare for the ultimate paranormal wedding.

Leigh takes a break from writing her latest paranormal romance novel, Shifty Blades of Fae, when her friends take her out for a night of shameless depravity filled with witch's brew, shape-shifting strippers, and unfortunately, arrest warrants - aka her bachelorette party. The gang soon finds out they are once again up to their necks in another mystery.

Join these hapless witches as they confront Voodoo practitioners, faeries, selkies, demons, ghosts, dragons, and more. The witches even run into the washed up heavy metal band, Twisted Shifter, as they mount a comeback. It's a journey fraught with hilarious disaster at every turn. In this wedding gone wild, will Leigh finally get to say "I do"?


5 out of 5 Hearts

Hysterical Mysterious Fun!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Between Melanie James writing and Hollie Jackson narrating, this audiobook had me rolling in laughter as the scenes played out. I Love It!!!


This is the first Literal Leigh book I have read or listened to, and it most certainly will not be the last. Well written, easy to follow, chock full of hysterical banter between the characters, mysterious and humerous scenes, and steamy sensuality puts this story in my favorites of all time.

I don't use spoilers in my reviews as it may ruin a book for others. I will just say that if you want to get a real laugh, explore and enjoy this read.

Blog Tour: Teach Me Daddy by Isabella Starling & Demi Donovan

Title: Teach Me Daddy 
Author: Isabella Starling & Demi Donovan 

Daddy’s gonna teach her some manners.


I’ve done bad things, I’ve got a reputation. But if I do this, everything could go away. It’s time to pay for my mistakes. 

I have to take little Cora’s virginity. Spoil her from the good little girl into a naughty vixen that begs for Daddy so good.
I have to teach her to be a good slut, but only for me.
And then, I have to let her go, and never look back.


He’s my teacher.
I shouldn’t be attracted to him – he’s intent on humiliating me in class and making me kneel in private.
I should hate Maddox. Should see him for the handsome, inked monster that he is.
But I can’t stay away. Can’t stop myself from begging…
Teach me, Daddy.

A full-length dark romance novel. Teacher/student theme. Standalone, no cliffhanger, no cheating. HEA guaranteed

Isabella Starling started out as a voracious reader of dark romance, and has since evolved her love of reading into writing dark, twisted romantic tales. When not spending time with her boyfriend, two cats & a Labrador pup, she's chatting away to author friends and plotting her next release.

Demi Donovan is a writer on a mission. A mission to bring bad boys, dark love and filthy dreams to every page she writes, that is.
A lifelong reader, writing is something she always wanted to do. The fact that she can write about all the dark, twisted things going through her head only makes it that much better. 
Demi lives in a small town with big dogs, even bigger aspirations and a man who isn't a bad boy, but definitely plenty filthy.
