The memory of Brigitte’s upbringing in the Dreamclans slowly fades away as she succumbs to the lavish lifestyle of her new home.

Outside the gilded walls, a looming storm encircles the city, trapping its inhabitants as they remain blind to the treachery within. Meanwhile, D’Vinid is reluctantly caught up in the unstoppable currents of fate. A harrowing encounter with the murderous Shadowmancers launches him on a perilous journey, while Symbiosis with his new soul-crystal reveals clues to the corruption of the Crystal Grid. All paths lead back into the forbidden arms of Brigitte. Is their union a beacon of hope? Or will it unleash the Shadows of Atlantis?

Excerpt:

“Your king will visit you soon,” he whispered. “He asked me to prepare you.”

He smoothed aromatic oil on his hands and gently rubbed it on her skin. She was unable to control the urges his touch inspired. The feel and smell of the oil kicked her senses into overload. She moaned. His hands sent electric shocks through her body. She arched her back, sinking into the arousal, hoping beyond hope that he would escalate the pleasure. When she reached a peak, he left the room. Her mind was muddled beyond measure. Floating in a state of suspended ecstasy, she had the presence of mind to pull on a robe before stumbling into the main parlor.

There she found Stixxus pacing. His grumbling demeanor pulled a blanket of tension over the room.

“Stixxus.” Brigitte moved closer, stumbling in the sensual fog. She stared at the ripple of his muscles. Desire consumed her until she reached to touch his skin. He grabbed her hand. “Your Majesty.

Please,” he begged.

Breathless, she collapsed into his arms, running her lips on his bare bicep. The salt of his skin ignited her passion even further.

“Please. Take me.” She pressed her body against his.

He pushed her to arm’s length. Having seen the mixologist leave her room, he knew she had been drugged with the aphrodisiacs.

Such was the way of things in Atlantis. “Your Majesty, the Fury League has defected from the king’s order. This means I am no longer under the order of the trident. I must report to the Warrior Sect.”

Brigitte creased her brow. The haze of desire, though overwhelming, began to dissipate. The meaning of his words sank in.

Stixxus watched her eyes for signs of understanding. “The king is accused of lying and deceiving the people. The Warrior Sect is unable to break the codes of honor.” He gazed on her pleadingly. “I don’t wish to leave here.” He squirmed, stealing a look at the shape of her body through the thin robe she wore, contemplating her pleas.

“Then don’t leave. Perhaps it will work itself out.” She forced herself to walk toward the balcony overlooking the private sanctuary below. “My brother has not yet returned. You and Alondriss are all I have.” She turned to face him. “I am not the king. Perhaps my order is still legitimate.”

He was stunned by her regal beauty. There was no way he could refuse her. Sighing, he sank to one knee. “Forgive me, my queen. I will obey your wishes. I will inform my league-master that I wil stay with you as a mercenary.”

A shadow fell over the entry foyer, and they both turned their attention to the intruder.

“You have a good point, my queen.” The voice of King Kyliron sent a chil across the room. “Perhaps the furies will listen to your order.” He joined her on the balcony, waving toward Stixxus. “I would like to be alone with my mate now,” he brushed a chilling glare over the warrior.

Stixxus did not bow. He merely planted his feet firmly on the ground, hands folded behind his back, eyes fixed on Brigitte. “I answer to the queen alone.” The warrior’s gravel voice creaked darkly.

Kyliron raised an eyebrow. “You do inspire the people,” he leaned closer to Brigitte, inhaling the intoxicating aroma of the oil on her skin. “The furies may have shunned my rule, but you are still my queen.”

The arousal turned to pain. She had to have one of them if not both. With a gulp, she gestured to the warrior. “Stixxus, please retire to the corridor as sentry.”

 

About Mara:

Mara Powers is a rebel of the written word who has tackled the monumental task of recreating Atlantis. When she was 16 in Fort Collins, Colorado, she began visiting the library in search of things she couldn't learn in school. Her goal was to re-define her religion. She studied theology voraciously until she discovered the concept of reincarnation though Hinduism. It was the answer to a lifelong existential crisis that had plagued her for many sleepless nights. The study of reincarnation led her to the channel Edgar Cayce. In his many books, she found his past life readings of lifetimes spent in Atlantis. This was the beginning of a lifelong quest to unravel the secrets of this mystery. She has spent upwards of 30 years exploring the labyrinth of ancient civilizations. Her decision to turn it all into a high concept, visionary fantasy series stems from her study of the esoteric depiction of Atlantis. With the other half of her research rooted in the secular, it was the best way to illustrate both aspects of this fascinating legend. Her work is the legacy of the legend.

About The Series:


Pilot, smuggler, badass—these are what I know . . . until I end up trapped in an itty bitty space ship with five maddeningly tempting men who want to break down all my walls.

Just when I need all my wits about me to fight deadly old enemies and save the galaxy, my heart is playing hooky.

About The Book:

Fresh out of college and on the cusp of a promising career in New York City, Sela Monroe falls hard for Theo Walker when they meet in the park. He’s beautiful. He’s brilliant. He’s a go-getter. He’s everything she’s ever wanted. Sela would do anything for Theo. When he calls, she always answers. When he asks her to come over, she’s there in a matter of minutes. No time is ever too late. No request is ever too inconvenient.  


There’s only one problem with Sela’s relationship with Theo: he doesn’t love her back. Though Sela’s best friend, Annie, has been pleading with her to move on from Theo for months, citing his manipulative behavior and the hold he seems to have over sensitive Sela, when it finally hits Sela that her feelings aren’t reciprocated, it’s too much. 


After an emotional breakdown that leaves Sela in the hospital, she struggles to cope with her emotions. She has never felt more lost or hopeless or used. Only when she begins the healing process does she realize that genuine love does exist and that sometimes in places where you least expect it.

About The Book:


The story is over. It’s already too late.

At the end of the Turkish War of Independence, a British soldier disobeys orders to return home. Setting out to explore a country he had only known as trespasser, he uncovers danger, mysteries, and magic—adventure, obsession, and true love.

One hundred years later, the soldier’s great-granddaughter sits at her great-grandmother’s deathbed while the old woman recounts this very tale; it is the last she will ever tell.

Secrets are revealed as past and present collide, and as one woman’s future draws toward its inevitable close, another finds hers thrown into uncertainty. 


This Foreword Publicity tour runs from January 4th-8th, will have one or two stops a day on a Blog or Instagram and consist of reviews, interviews, guest posts, excerpts, & spotlights. Only eBooks available.

About The Book:


Do you want to know a secret?

Beneath the very ground on which you walk and beyond the stars above your head, are more worlds than you could ever dream of. There are monsters. Be afraid. Magic, wielded by witches and sorcerers. Epic adventures in worlds far across the ocean. And fearsome weapons which threaten to destroy everything.

Jimmy Crikey is a brave soul who faces some pretty scary challenges. Solving mysteries and averting mayhem, his incredible courage allows him to free up his abilities to shine and rise above every challenge in his path, on his way to discovering why he looks so very strange.

With a bright red mop of unruly hair, big blue eyes, a small snub nose, pointed ears and enormous feet, poor Jimmy is ridiculed by the neighbourhood children and runs away in search of a world where he fits in. Following a midnight flight through the forest, he stumbles into a lost, underground world called Roombelow and magic, adventure, danger and excitement await.

From the little lady who lives at the bottom of a well, a starship that wants to take him home, trolls, little people, traders and diamonite stealers to water sprites, witches, helpful dolphins, and interplanetary warfare, Jimmy learns the biggest lessons of his life.



This Classical Girl Press tour runs from  January 4th-29th, will have one stop a day on a Blog and Instagram and consist of reviews, interviews, pre-made guest posts, excerpts, & spotlights. Very Limited Physical Copies available & ebooks. If you've read or watched Tiny Pretty Things you'll love this one! 

About The Book:


It's 1990, and New York soloist April Manning is trying to rebalance her world in the aftermath of her parents’ deaths. An offer to join the struggling West Coast Ballet Theatre as a principal dancer seems like the perfect opportunity for a fresh start—a new life in San Francisco, an exciting step up in her career, and the hope of a redefined sense of family. But the other dancers are wary, clannish and tight-lipped, particularly about an incident that hastened the departure of their beloved artistic director, leading to the arrival of his replacement, the young, inexperienced Anders Gunst. And no one wants to talk about Jana, a former company member who defiantly walked out rather than work under Anders. It is Jana herself who offers April hints, and even friendship, where she reveals a loneliness and hunger to belong that newly orphaned April well understands. But there is something troubling about Jana, and what April doesn’t know could prove deadly.

A prequel to the Ballet Theatre Chronicles, BALLET ORPHANS explores the work and sacrifices required to arrive at the highest tiers of the professional ballet world, coupled with the primal, universal desire to belong, to love and be loved, and the lengths we’ll go to protect those we call family.

“A stimulating and entertaining tale in which passion and art intermingle.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Terez Mertes Rose makes dancers of us all. She ushers us behind the scenes of the gritty and glamorous world of ballet and captivates us with a story that is ultimately about universal themes of loss, hope, belonging, and what makes a family. I took up residence in the pages of this book and didn’t want to leave.”  — Kelly Mustian, author of The Girls in the Stilt House   

“In this prequel to her Ballet Theatre Chronicles series, Rose once again immerses us in the fascinating inner workings of a professional ballet company. Concurrently, the issues of loss and the search for family are beautifully and tenderly addressed. The unique personalities among the characters are depicted so clearly, they seemed like real people to me. I missed them when the story ended. A powerful, engaging read you won’t soon forget.”  — Grace Harstad, author of Invisible Woman: a Birth Mother’s Memoir


“Terez Mertes Rose’s descriptive writing leaps off of the page and takes you on a journey through protagonist April Manning’s eyes. I could identify with her struggles and achievements and I rooted for her along the way. A recommended read for all, dancer and non-dancer alike.” — Lauren Jonas, Artistic Director, Diablo Ballet

“Whether your remove comes from the vantage point of two-to-six degrees of separation or you are the dancer who has lived this ‘What I Did For Love’ experience, you’ll find that Rose’s every chapter could be a lusty, gusty, entry in and into your very own diary.” — Toba Singer, author of Fernando Alonso, the Father of Cuban Ballet and First Position: a Century of Ballet Artists 

“What I love about Terez Mertes Rose's novels are her achingly relatable characters and their complex fully-realized relationships. No matter the setting in the ballet world, Africa, or even the early 90s of Ballet Orphans, I quickly fall into the rhythm of her narrative and enjoy the ride.” — Leigh Purtill, author (as Cat Jordan) of Eight Days on Planet Earth

About Wallace E. Briggs: 

Wallace Briggs (1943 - present). My formative years were experienced in and around Durham City. Married in 1964 to a girl I first met at the age of eleven,Pat and I spent many happy years in the North East before employment almost took us off to emigrate to Jo'berg, South Africa but plans were changed in the final weeks and instead the company moved me to Sussex.
After more than twenty years in Sussex, then Hampshire, employment was again responsible for the move to beautiful rural Lancashire.

Jimmy Crikey was born one rainy day, many years ago, during a family holiday in Great Yarmouth, to entertain my son and his new found friends for an hour or so. The story expanded over the following wet afternoons in the cramped confines of a beach tent, and more and more adventures were required to keep the children entertained. Many years later I decided to commit to the written word. Now retired I look forward to sharing The Amazing Adventures of Jimmy Crikey with a wider audience. These began as several short, twenty minute duration, stories but after an encouraging review from a major Publisher I brought them together in this offering and hope they will bring a sense of wonder and enjoyment to another generation.

Our colonization ship crashed, stranding us on a strange new world.

To make matters worse, my best friend disappeared while scouting the area near our crash site.

In my search to find her, I’m stolen by a dragon—a creature straight out of every fairy tale book I’d ever read as a child.

He takes me back to his kingdom and I’m shocked when he shifts into a man—a fierce Drakarian warrior. He claims that I am his fated one—his Linaya.

Despite my protests, he refuses to let me go—and I cannot deny that I’m drawn to him in ways I do not understand.

The more time we spend together, I begin to wonder: what would it be like to be fated to a dragon?
