I Loved You First by Reena Jacobs

Alexandria (Alex) Carmichael guards two secrets close to her heart. One―she’s in love with her best friend, Seth. Two―he’s gay.
As a freshman in college, Alex looks forward to fun times with her best friend. When Seth decides cycling through girlfriends is the way to fit in with the straight crowd, Alex must make a choice: watch Seth give his affection to another while her heart breaks or come clean with her feelings and risk losing his friendship forever.
I LOVED YOU FIRST is a new adult love story told through the eyes of Alex, an African-American/Caucasian student, who takes a journey of self-discovery while watching her best friend come to terms with his sexuality.

I love giveaways. This time around, I want to do something other than give away copies of my books. Here’s the thing. I support Indie Authors. After all, I am one. :) This seems like the perfect time to show them some love.
So every day we’re going to do a giveaway. Each giveaway will run from 12:01 am to 11:59 pm. At the end of each giveaway, I'll randomly select a commentator from the posts featured that day. Readers can find a list of the daily winners on my blog.
What’s up for grabs? The winner will be able to select one eBook from Smashwords. I don’t know if any indie publishers have lost their minds, but just in case, the upper limits of this prize is $9.99.
How do readers enter? Each blogger should leave a question for readers to answer at the end of the post. The answer will be their entry for that blog. If you’d like me to come up with a question, I’d be happy to do so. Readers should also leave their email address so they can be contacted if they win.

Every day a new prizes, but you’ll have to hurry! Each giveaway lasts just 48 hours. And to wrap everything up, one reader and one blogger will each receive their choice of a $25 GC from B&N or $25 toward books at the Book Depository.

Cover Reveal for Finding Esta by Shah Wharton

It's finally here!

An unusual young woman and fledgling journalist, Luna has various restrictive and annoying oddities, all of which have prevented any kind of physical intimacy during her 23 years. In her dreams a dark stranger visits her, and in lieu of the real thing their intimacy excites her. During those moments, nestled within his presence, she senses an urgent message is the reason for his visits to her subconscious. A message she cannot interpret, regardless of his persistent efforts.  
Her abusive parents remain blissfully unaware of Luna’s Shadow’s, but are all too aware of other issues with touch and sunlight, reveling in her isolated misery and physical pain. Still, Luna hopes to one day make them proud, hoping this will take her closer to being worthy of their elusive love. Something she craves almost as much as the painless touch of a lover.
When Luna learns of a tragic story involving the kidnap of baby Esta, she jumps at the chance to investigate. She hopes finding Esta and closing this cold case will finally earn her parents’ admiration, and love.
Of course, it doesn’t quite go to plan. The loitering stranger from her dreams now stalks her during daylight. How can this be? And will he ever be more than a figure in the shadows, always just out of reach?
Her investigation leads Luna to St Ives, Cornwall: a vibrant seaside town hiding copycat aliens and an underworld of Supernaturals. Here, she comes face-to-face with her own, terrifying identity. Confronted with life-changing decisions and the harshest of truths, Luna confronts insanity with logic, only to fight against both. Will Luna ever find the path to all that she desires?
More significantly, is she trapped in a newfound supernatural world, or within her own delusions? And will anyone care enough to save her?

Blog Tour will be July 23rd to 27th!!  
Details to come soon!

Blog Tour Spot

Whisper Cape by Regan Walsh

A powerful woman, an extraordinary man, and a maniac who wants to destroy them. Fate has brought them together, but will it make them stronger or destroy them all in end?
Escape to a world where the impossible becomes possible and sparks ignite.
WHISPER CAPE is a town of secrets and Addison MacKenna soon becomes tangled in a web of them. Plagued with nightmares of her father's sudden and brutal death, Addie struggles with her anguish and refuses to believe his demise was accidental.
Fighting to shake off one of those devastating early morning nightmares, Addison finds it even harder to escape from the vision of a man lying on the side of the road--a man she may have just killed. When she frantically tries to locate him, he seemingly disappears, just the beginning of strange occurrences in her life. She also cannot ignore the weird sensations in her own body. Suddenly, the impossible seems possible, but is that a blessing or a curse?
Believing that her continual and worsening nightmares are both the key to her own new abilities and the clue to her father's death, Addie knows she will not rest until she has the answers she craves. As she strives to cope with her new remarkable talents, someone else learns of her abilities--a disgruntled maniacal psychopath with his own agenda that involves eliminating Addie. The only one who can protect her, instruct her in the use of her powers and teach her how to destroy the murderous monster is the same man who makes Addie's heart race and her blood heat with passion. The same man she'd left for dead.
Cael Sheridan may be arrogant and mysterious but he's also undeniably gorgeous. A member of a secret society, he is sworn to protect the woman he believes to be the daughter of his recently murdered mentor. In the process, he finds it impossible to resist her magnetic sensuality, complicating his efforts to shield and guide her as she learns to manage her newly acquired skills. At the same time, Addison has much to teach him about trust and commitment. Fate has brought them together, but will it make them stronger or destroy them both in end?
 The first book is a good start to a new series. Like most first books, it starts with a slow beginning but quickly picks up.
After her father dies mysteriously, Addie, a 26 year old, begins to have nightmares every night. She has a hard time figuring out what they mean and ties them into the strange note her father had left for her.
Moving to Oregon where her father and aunt grew up she works in the restaurant Whisper Cape where she is introduced into the paranormal world. Suddenly Addie discovers a hidden talent she never knew she had. With her telekinetic abilities she can control electrical devices.
Cael is on a quest to find a powerful crystal and is associated with a sacred book. He has supernatural skills of his own (teleportation).
When Cael shows up, Addie thinks she has run him over with her truck and is surprised to see him all over town. Once she approaches him and they start talking, they are immediately attracted to one another. When women who look like Addie start showing up dead, Cael feels he must protect her. This gives their romance a chance to heat up.
Throughout the pages, we are introduced to new characters, a secret society with shape shifters among other being. The story has a mixture of romance, lots of sex and action with supernatural/paranormal twists and turns that will keep you guessing as to who the villain really is. The author gives lots of details with vivid descriptions that drew me into the story, making me feel as if I was there with the characters. The story is well plotted and everything is tied together in the end and leaves you knowing exactly what has happened. A great stand-alone story, I am looking forward to reading the second book in the series to see how the author continues the storyline.  I was pleasantly surprised when the books turns out extremely better than the description.  This book was very hard to put down.  Regan Walsh writes with great passion and detail that you can’t help but get caught up in the story.  She has a great way of developing not only the main characters but others as well.  I hope the book leads to a series, but this book definitely is a great stand alone book.  I highly recommend the book and give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
