Author Bio:

From an early age Miranda Brock has always loved fantasy and adventure everything. Since she doesn’t live in a world of enchanting powers, mythical beasts, and things unbelievable she has decided to write about them. (Although, if you happen to see a dragon flying around, do tell her.) Born in southern Illinois, where she still resides with her husband and two children, she grew up running through the woods, playing in creeks, and riding horses. What started out as writing poetry grew into short stories and eventually led to her first novel, Souls Discovered. Miranda lives in the country where she finds inspiration in the simplicity and beauty around her. With the help of a ridiculous amount of coffee and some good music she writes whenever she gets a chance.

Sleep eluded Jason. He had decided not to go hunting for Dehmons tonight, thinking he could catch up on some sleep. Thoughts whirling around in his head kept him from doing so. It wasn’t Searching, Dehmons or Power that kept him from sleep. It was Autumn. He had been thinking about her all day. Early that morning when he walked outside he saw her riding Sky in the arena. She was riding bareback again. He was amazed watching Autumn dance Sky around the arena, her face showing pure ecstasy. She was breathtaking.

He shook his head. He shouldn’t be having those thoughts. It wasn’t right. It wasn’t possible. He knew that. Petr’s firm warning ran through his mind. He had to stop thinking about her like this. He had to. He would. Hoping the night air would help clear his mind, he walked to the door leading to the balcony.

She is my Keeper and nothing more. He opened the door and his resolve crumbled to dust.

There sat Autumn on the banister wearing a pair of pale blue shorts and a cream-colored tank top. She was swinging her legs slightly when he opened the door, but she immediately stopped. Jason shut his bedroom door and walked over to her.

He leaned back against the banister next to Autumn and said, “You know I don’t like it when you sit up there.”

“I know,” Autumn said simply.

“Are you going to stop doing it?”

“Probably not” She looked at him and smiled. Her smile seemed nervous.

“Are you okay?” Jason asked.

Autumn shrugged. “I couldn’t sleep.”

Jason could sense that there was something she didn’t want to talk about. He wished she would tell him. Instead, he said, “Yeah, me neither.”

“Did you just get home?” Autumn still didn’t like the fact that her Searchers went off to look for Dehmons.

Jason shook his head. “I haven’t been anywhere tonight.”

Relief fell across Autumn’s face. She nodded and said nothing.

They were both silent; Autumn looking up at the stars, Jason looking at Autumn.

Finally he said, “You have been doing remarkably well, Autumn.”

Autumn smiled and looked at Jason. “Have I?”

“Yes. We’re all very proud of you. I’m very proud of you.”

Autumn’s heart jumped at that. She wanted him to be proud of her. She wanted to please Jason more than any of the others.

Jason continued, “Your strength and instincts are incredible. You’re progressing much faster than expected.” He paused, then added, “You’re amazing, Autumn.”

The Keeper blushed. Jason noticed, and it made him happy. His resolve first, crumbled to dust, now scattered in the wind. It was beyond retrieval now, and he knew it.

“We’ve all been doing well,” Autumn said, feeling awkward and trying to take the attention off of herself.

“We have,” her Firstsearcher agreed. “Soon we will be able to start hunting Dehmons.”

Fear and apprehension flashed across Autumn’s face.

“It is what we are here for,” Jason said.

“I know, I just…” Autumn looked down, unable to finish.

“You’re afraid,” Jason said it as a statement, not a question.

“Yes,” Autumn admitted truthfully.

Jason laid a hand on her shoulder. “Don’t be afraid. We’re strong. We’ll protect you.”

“I’m more worried about one of you getting hurt,” Autumn said. Or killed. That was too horrific to contemplate.

Silent for a moment, Jason stared at Autumn. He was in awe of her. She was so selfless. So caring. So strong. He looked at her face, her forehead creased in needless worry. So beautiful. He stood up from the banister.

“Autumn, turn around.”

Jason stepped in front of her, placing his hands gently around her upper arms. She looked at him with uncertainty in her eyes.

“You don’t have to worry. Nothing will happen to us. I promise. We’ll always be here. Forever.”

And then, because his resolve was floating somewhere in the atmosphere eternally out of reach, he leaned forward and kissed her.

Marie Josette d’Orgemont, cousin to Louis XVI, watched in horror as a rogue creature took her husband’s life before turning on her. A powerful vampire swept in and spared her life, but she never suspected surviving meant immortality or the price she’d have to pay to protect her surviving son.

Centuries later, in Miami, with her family on the verge of extinction, Marie is preoccupied with the continuation of her human bloodline. When she meets sexy and persistent Odin Ulfsson, his icy-blue gaze and burning touch are hard to resist.

Ederlyn, a cruise-line professional by day, by night loves to plot meticulous happily-ever-afters for the hero and heroine, often battling Jane to save her favorites.

As he breathed, he edged closer and closer until their bodies touched and the heat emitting from his body seared through her like brushfire.

A wave of desire, fanned by the heat of his skin, coursed through her with such momentum she swayed toward him. She was dimly aware of the sheer insanity of her predicament. One minute she was fighting a lesser of his kind and the next she swelled with desire for this werewolf. What was happening to her?

He leaned into her and nudged her neck.

She couldn’t move, could only stand there and suffer the exquisite heat of their bodies molded together.

He growled, and she closed her eyes, absorbing his scent. Unlike what she had just fought, he smelled like the earth scorched by sunlight. He was exciting, and images of a blazing hearth and tangled limbs came to mind. She wanted him and the realization was as surprising as it was embarrassing.

She tilted her face up and was immediately lost in the gold depths of his eyes, more human than beast. Different. Time and place disappeared into nothingness.

He reached for her finally and the movement snapped their connection.

“State your business,” she hissed. Her hands closed into fists.

He sniffed.

“Enough, dog.” She struck him, jolting him backward. He was quicker and bigger than the others, but still no match for her. Or was he? She dismissed the errant thought. He was just an animal and she was a Princess of the Blood with the essence of an ancient master running through her.

Catching him by the mane, she flipped him forward. The huge blond and silver-haired thing landed hard in front of her, but immediately recovered, jumping up into an offensive position. He growled, but didn’t attack. He backed away as upright as a human, with hind claws that clanked on the gravel.

His neck stretched and the aura around him thickened and sizzled. After a couple of pops, he shifted from wolf mixture into full naked human.

She gaped.

“Are you hurt?” he asked.

She looked away from his magnificent well-endowed physique to scrutinize his face. It was equally gorgeous. “You are loup garou.”

“It’s been a while since I’ve heard that.”

Even after shrinking six inches, as bones reorganized, he was still mammoth, and his eyes changed from sun-drenched gold to brilliant blue. Her gaze slipped again, traveling across his wide shoulders, chiseled chest and abdomen, before stopping at his powerful thighs and the manhood between.

Warmth surged through her, unexpected and surprising. She wanted to be closer and had to shake her head against the pull. Why was she so drawn to him?

“Do you like what you see?” He smirked.

Embarrassment flamed her cheeks and she tore her gaze away. She felt … She didn’t know how she felt. Young.

“Who are you?” he asked.

“It is not your concern.” She inhaled deeply and exhaled, needing to shake off the spell of desire, and took a confrontational step forward. She would learn more about him and what was going on, one way or another. “Do you want to finish this?”

To her amazement, he laughed, a rich throaty rumble that sent shivers of renewed awareness down her back.

Blog Tour ~ Rise of the Deva'shi (Parthalan #3)

Author: Jennifer Allis Provost

Genre: Fantasy/Science Fiction/ Young Adult

Tour Dates: 20th-24th of March

Hosted by: Ultimate Fantasy Book Tours



A stolen girl. A legendary champion. A plan that might destroy Parthalan once and for all…

Aeolmar, First Hunter of Parthalan, leads a solitary life. Having long since abandoned his quest to kill Mersgoth—the demon that murdered his family—Aeolmar moves through his days with cold efficiency. Everything changes when he leads a training mission in Brennus, where he’s attacked by Mersgoth himself, and saved by an unlikely heroine.

Latera, first born and heir to Gannera’s throne, is kidnapped and left for dead in Parthalan’s vast forests. A lone human amongst Parthalan’s fae, she makes a home in Brennus, and lives a quiet life—until she finds herself defending a wounded First Hunter from a clutch of demons.

Back in Parthalan, Harek warns Asherah of something called the deva’shi—a warrior loyal only to the demon lord, Asgeloth. Both Aeolmar and Latera suspect that there is more to this deva’shi than what Harek has told them, but before they can learn the truth, Parthalan’s borders are attacked. Will Aeolmar and Latera be able to stop the deva’shi in time, or is it a distraction to hide Harek’s true plans?

Latera speaks…


I watched Aeolmar disappear among the trees, and wondered what I’d do with myself until the hunters returned. The horses were fed and watered, and the stirrup I’d been repairing was as good as new. Maybe I’d take a nap.

The elder sun had barely moved a hand’s width across the sky when I heard shouting. Finlay and Bron were carrying Aeolmar into the clearing, his head lolling to the side and his leg a bloody mess.

“What happened?” I asked.

“Ambush,” replied Finlay. They entered the main tent and deposited their leader on the sole table. “You’ll see to the wound?” Finlay asked. I nodded, then they were gone.

I looked at the First Hunter. Not only was he bruised, bleeding, and unconscious, he was covered in sticks and leaves. “And you are the most feared warrior in Parthalan,” I said, brushing away the detritus. “You look like you fell out of a tree, fool man. Stay on the ground, and leave the trees for the birds.”

I cleaned his wounds and bandaged his leg, then I had the brilliant idea of moving him from the hard table to a bedroll. Since moving him was like shoving a mountain, I settled for placing rolled blankets under his head and knees. Figuring he’d be hungry when he woke, I started some porridge. I was slicing fruit into the pot, and concentrating so intently on not slicing my fingers, I almost didn’t hear them.

Apparently, it hadn’t occurred to these hunters that they could be followed. I dropped the fruit and looked for a weapon, my gaze settling on Aeolmar’s sword. I grabbed it from its sheath and almost dropped it. I hadn’t realized how much a sword weighed, and the hunters carried them as if they weighed nothing. I’d barely tightened my grip when a twig snapped behind me. I turned around and faced what had to be demons.

I’d heard tales of demons but had never seen one, and here were three, less than twenty paces from me. They stalked the far edge of the clearing, then the largest barked orders at the other two. I stood in front of the tent, struggling to keep the sword aloft.

The big one moved forward and growled, “Step aside.”

“Leave here and I’ll let you live,” I shouted. They laughed.

“I’ll enjoy your screams, girl,” he said, followed by such crude words my face heated. That heat burnt away my lingering bits of fear and I rushed for him, bringing the sword down on his arm and pushing him into the fire. I stared at the demon’s severed arm at my feet, shocked and sickened.

The other two lunged at me. I tore my gaze from the arm in the dirt as I evaded one and sliced the other’s neck open. He gaped as his blood flowed out onto the ground. Then I spun and plunged my sword into the other’s chest.

I stood panting over the demons, both dead at my hand. I’d never killed anything before, not even a mouse. Ladies in Gannera weren’t taught to hunt, and as royalty, I’d had legions of guards defending me. After my abduction, I scavenged roots and berries to fill my belly before going to Brennus and Elma’s kitchen. Give that woman a large enough pot and she could feed all the nine realms.

Despite my lack of experience, both of the demons were quite dead. My mother would have been horrified. I should have been horrified, but instead I was curious, and leaned in for a closer look. One had scales on its neck and a snakelike tongue, while the other’s hands were covered in black fur, like a panther, with claws where fingers should be. While I scrutinized the bodies, the big one—whom I’d quite forgotten about—grabbed me from behind.

He clapped a great scaly hand over my face, the sick smell of him filling my nose and stinging my eyes. I flailed my sword, but couldn’t make contact with the beast. He was grunting in my ear, squeezing my chest with his stump until black spots danced before me.

The beast stiffened and fell forward, trapping me between him and the ground. His arm moved, and I took in a great lungful of air, grateful I wasn’t dead. Something wet like water but hot like fire soaked through my shirt, and I screamed.

Ruth arrived at the apartment within half an hour of Kira calling her, laden with two large bags of Dina’s clothes and other essentials. As Kira settled Grace on her play mat, Jed offered to make the drinks. Ruth took one look at Martha and Dina’s pale faces, eyes red from crying and quietly asked what was going on. Neither answered, so she sat down with them and waited. Kira plonked herself on the floor, within arms reach of the baby.

      ‘You want to start Ma?’ she asked.

      'Firstly I don’t want to hear any wild fantasies about Anti Corp or resistance or any of that nonsense.’ She glared at Ruth who held her hands up in mock submission. 'I mean it. We know you have ties with AC but this time you have to be on our side, otherwise you leave now.’

      Ruth looked at the three women and saw how serious they all were.

      'I’m in,’ she said.

      Martha looked over at Dina who gave her a slight nod. She continued.  

      'Dina had a miscarriage this morning, a medical anomaly. And I, well, I’m pregnant.’

      Jed chose that particular moment to bring hot drinks over to the women and stopped in amazement at what Martha had said. The sudden scalding pain on his hand alerted him that he was spilling synth-caf everywhere.

      'Ah! Frag, that’s hot,’ he cried, and danced around Grace trying not to lose any more burning liquid, rushing to get rid of the mugs. 'Pregnant? Pregnant! No wonder Mr Hamble is desperate for everyone to sign a disclosure. Oh, my fragging hand.’

      Ruth’s mouth hung open, her eyes wide - this was huge. This could be the sweep of the century.

      'This could ruin Corporation.’ Ruth spoke out loud and glanced quickly at Kira to see if she had heard her.

      'But you won’t say anything, will you Ruth,’ Kira said.

      'I won’t tell anyone. I swear.’ Ruth began fiddling with her thick hair hanging over her left shoulder. 'But have you thought about the implications? Corporation…’

      'We have to decide what to do next,’ Kira said, interrupting Ruth and trying to sound far more confident than she felt.  'Dina honey, you can stay here as long as you want. Do you want to call Ben and let him know what’s happened?’

      Dina shook her head while Ruth glowered at Kira.

      'Not yet,’ Dina said in a small voice. 'I’d like to go lie down to be honest.’

      'Of course.’

      Martha realised her presence was probably acting as a vicious reminder of what Dina had recently lost.  

      'I am so sorry Dina,’ she said.

      'I know.’ Dina’s voice trembled and her lower lip wobbled. 'I just can’t talk about it right now.’

      Tears began to roll down her cheeks. She put a hand out to stop the others from hugging her.

      'Please, don’t.’

      Getting up from the floor, Kira gestured to Dina to follow her and took her through the adjoining door into the second apartment and found the spare room. She returned a few moments later and scooped baby Grace up for a cuddle, then turned to the others.

      'What the frag is going on?’
