    Hunted by V.M. Nelson Blitz + An Amazon Gift Card Giveaway!

    V.M. Nelson
    (The Dhampyr Series, #1)
    Publication date: October 25th 2022
    Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

    Tasi, an eighteen-year-old, head-strong, blood-drinking, dhampyr, has been hidden away in a small town in Maine since the death of her parents. Though she had trained to fight and kill vampires, she never believed those skills would be useful in her mundane life. That’s where she’s wrong.

    In one moment, her life changes forever, and her aunt’s final words ring in her head.

    They want your blood.

    Now orphaned and charged with protecting her sister, Emily—a sister who doesn’t know what they are or that she’s about to endure a life-threatening change—Tasi has no other choice but to follow directions left for her. She is to find an ally who lives in New York City. This is the only way Tasi will figure out why she and Emily are being hunted before they end up drained of their blood.

    What started out as a routine task to find blood turned into an onslaught of pain. I rubbed my eyes, allowing the darkness that filled my head to fizzle away. My hands, tender from scraping against the gravel, grasped at the cold metal fence. I flinched as my cuts burned against the steel. I’d done this to myself. The thumping under my skin and my lack of balance were all a result of ignoring my need to feed.

    Now here I sat, watching my blood as it dripped down my leg and pooled onto the sidewalk. A tingling sensation ran through me as I flicked out the tiny shards that had embedded themselves in my skin. My body helped to push them out in an effort to heal itself. This was not part of tonight’s plan. I stared back up at the fence—my nemesis. Razor-sharp wire wrapped itself around the top of the rusty, twelve-foot-high chain-link barricade.

    Take the shortcut, Tasi. It’ll be quicker and safer, Tasi. What a stupid idea.

    Under normal circumstances, I could dart up the fence, hop over the barbed wire, and gracefully land on my feet. My overall dexterity might have won me a gold medal in gymnastics, but that was so not happening in my current condition.

    An ache thundered through my body as I reached for the fence again. I hoisted myself up for the first time since tumbling off. With one last labored breath, I ran my hands down my pants, dislodging the remaining rocks from my newly healed skin. Nearby, a rustling sound echoed through the alley. My breath caught. The metal garbage cans clanked together as if they were being tossed around. If I were human, I wouldn’t think twice about the commotion. Lucky for me, I knew better. It was probably setting up to kill its next victim. There were a few shady-looking dive bars and run-down nightclubs in this area. The repetitive pounding of music stemming from different directions would drown out all screams. This was a perfect feeding ground.

    Over the past few months, these creatures had become my reality. Since I was thirteen, I’d known of their existence, but only recently had I been in the same vicinity as them. And when they were around, you didn’t want to be, so it was time to go.

    With a quick pivot in the opposite direction, I ran. I didn’t get farther than a few feet before my shoelace caught in the grate and my chin scraped against the ground. More blood dripped from my body.

    Tasi, seriously—what else can go wrong?

    Wrapping the shoelace around my fingers, I yanked until it released itself. By the time I tucked it into my shoe, it was too late. It had heard me. The pounding in my ears was no longer from the nightclubs but the pavement, and it was getting louder. I’d piqued its interest. Rather, my blood had piqued its interest.

    Author Bio:

    TRENDHIM favicon.svgTRENDHIM: Keeping Up With The Bling While Keeping It Clean

    There’s no denying it, men’s jewelry is only going to skyrocket from here onward. The Paris, Milan, and NYC men’s spring/summer 2022 show was proof enough. Here are some key pieces that we think will create that extra oomph, even when you’re wearing a plain white tee.

    Multiple Rings: The More, The Merrier
    Adorning one’s hand with multiple rings, whether it is a couple of subtle gold ones paired with showy signets, is now a thing. TRENDHIM’s ring collection offers a mix of rock punk to clean lines, rings with colourful stones to a titanium collection that can rival an aircraft.

    Trendhim_1.jpgSee TRENDHIM’s ultimate ring guide, HERE.

    Necklaces: Bold Combinations
    Feeling a wee bit apprehensive to rock pearls (The Amager Collection) and chain necklaces? Worry not, this year’s trend is all about breaking the norms. Stack a chain necklace with pearls or layer it up with different thicknesses, the sky’s the limit to your creativity.Trendhim_4.jpg

    See TRENDHIM’s ultimate necklaces, HERE.

    Bracelets: Minimalism At Its Finest
    Cuffs or a simple chain or two would do the trick. Engrave for more personalization, which TRENDHIM also offers. If you want to wear two or three, make sure that the colours complement each other, if not the same.

    See TRENDHIM’s guide to wearing bracelets, HERE.

    Earrings: The Charmed Life
    Whether it’s a simple stud or earrings with statement charms, nothing screams self-expression better than this. And more and more men are jumping on the hype train of ear piercing.


    See TRENDHIM’s ultimate ear-piercing guide, HERE.

    Aside from blurring the lines of male and female pieces, another thing that stood out for this year’s trend is sustainability.

    TRENDHIM is already working on it as well. “We are committed to making better choices that will help us reduce our environmental impact. With the help of Sustainawear, we’ve gained vital insights into the steps needed to move our business operations toward a more sustainable future, not only for our customers but the home we all share 🌍 💚 We’re also running on “the cleanest cloud in the industry!” Currently carbon-neutral, Google Cloud aims to be completely carbon-free by 2030. Our warehouse storage is also earth-friendly, made of 100% recycled paper. And what’s more, they’re 100% recyclable afterwards!”

    Publication date: September 25th 2021
    Genres: Adult, Comedy, Contemporary, Holiday, Romance

    Twas the text before Christmas…

    Twenty-eight-year-old Holly Snow is the only mother her four-year-old niece remembers. Three years earlier, when her sister and brother-in-law were killed, Holly’s dream of becoming an international flight attendant was put on hold so she could be home for baby Faith. Holly is doing everything she can to keep the rent paid, including working as an online travel agent, filing medical claims, and cleaning apartments in her building. When her friend Maggie tells her that her boss needs someone to buy his Christmas gifts, she leaps at the opportunity.

    Tall, dark and Scroogy, investment banker, Archibald Harrington is too busy to do his own Christmas shopping. When his assistant tells him she knows of a professional shopper, he happily checks another dreaded task off his holiday list. The last thing Archie is expecting is for his hired elf to text him insistently to find out more about the people on list. The last thing Holly expects is to develop feelings for grumpy man who’s stealing her Christmas spirit.

    Will there be a Holiday miracle, or will Holly and Archie miss their chance at love? Find out in the fifth installment of the Accidentally in Love Series.

    “My boss needs a personal shopper for Christmas, and I’ve already told him I know the very best one in Manhattan.” Toni gives me an open-mouthed smile, clearly expecting me to jump up and down.

    “Your boss. As in Archibald Snooty Pants the Forty-Second?” I ask, pursing my lips.

    She opens her mouth, but I cut her off with one finger in the air. “You complain about the man all the time.”

    “It’s not like he’s a horrible person, he’s just a one trick pony—all work and no play. Plus, it’s not like you’ll have to work side-by-side with him or anything. You probably won’t even have to see him.”

    “I’m not a personal shopper,” I tell her. “Unless his family and friends want ramen noodles or discount t-shirts from the guy who sells them out of his trunk in front of my apartment building, I would have no idea what to buy.”

    “Yeah, well, Archie doesn’t know that.” She pumps her eyebrows up and down like a comedian.

    “Toni, you told me the guy was a rich stuck-up preppy from the Hamptons. While I would love nothing more than to make some extra money, I don’t have the foggiest notion how to shop for rich people.”

    “So watch some holiday episodes of Real Housewives and see what they buy each other. He’ll tell you how much to spend on each person. Come on, Holl, it’s not brain surgery. It’s shopping. You know how to shop. And you need the money.”

    “What if he hates me?” I despise feeling so pathetic, but I’m totally out of my league here.

    “Then he hates you. So what? Believe me when I tell you, Archibald Harrington only thinks about work. You can’t take anything he says personally.”

    Dread slams into me like a wrecking ball. “How much do you think I can make?”

    “Enough to pay for Christmas and at least the next three months of Faith’s preschool tuition. How can you pass that up?”

    The answer is, I can’t. And if it means working for a cranky billionaire, then Toni is right. I’ll do whatever I have to do in order to take care of Faith. I just can’t guarantee I’ll like it.

    “Fine,” I tell her. “How many gifts am I supposed to buy?”

    “He’ll need all of his family gifts, which include his godfather’s family. He’s spending Christmas with them in Newport. He wants you to cover his business gifts, as well. The VIPs are starred, meaning those particular gifts need to be extra-amazing. I’ve also made you a list of everything that I want, so I don’t wind up with another Monte Blanc pen. I’ve already sold three of those suckers on eBay and I only get a fraction of what they’re worth.”

    “I don’t even know what a Monte Blanc pen is.” My chest tightens like I’m not getting enough oxygen.

    She hands me a piece of paper. “This is a list of websites to check out. You can order everything and have it delivered here.”

    “Why can’t I just have everything sent to his office? What am I going to do with it?”

    After taking a healthy swig of white zinfandel, Toni says, “You’re going to wrap everything up and make it look like Santa himself cracked the whip on the gift-wrapping elves. Once you have everything purchased and ready, I’ll send a car to pick the gifts up.”

    “You’ll send a car, will you?” I tease.

    “Yeah, well, I can do those fancy things in the name of my boss.”

    “How am I going to pay for everything?” I ask. “I have about two hundred dollars of credit left on my card. I don’t think that’s going to cut it.”

    Toni opens her purse and hands me a shiny black credit card. “There’s no limit, so if you don’t mind doing a little jail time, you could have a lot of fun.”

    “No limit? I can’t imagine such a thing.” I fantasize about what damage I could do with plastic like this. Not only could I pay for Faith’s school for the rest of the year, but I could also get my mom into one of those nursing homes that has a hair salon and restaurant. I could upgrade to a two-bedroom apartment so Faith doesn’t have to sleep in the closet anymore, and I could even splurge and buy myself some real leather gloves.

    “You’re imagining, aren’t you?” Toni jolts me out of my daydream.

    “I most certainly am. The first thing I’d do is buy Faith whatever winter coat she wanted and then I’d take her out to a nice restaurant.”

    Toni rolls her eyes. “If you’re going down for a crime, you’ve got to think bigger.”

    I stare at the card for a second, then look back up at Toni. “How can you stand working for someone who has so much? Don’t you just want to steal cash out of his wallet once in a while?” I don’t really have the heart of a felon, I’m just tired of always being broke.

    “The nice thing about Archie is that even though he has the personality of a killer shark, he’s generous. He has a Friday lunch catered for his staff every week, and he makes sure to float us enough extras that none of us are tempted to steal from him. He’s a good businessman.”

    “Even though he’s a stuck-up preppy?” I ask for clarification.


    I look at the list of stores she thinks I should shop at—Tiffany’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, Harrods, The House of Bijan … “What’s my budget?”

    She hands me another piece of paper. The handwriting isn’t hers, so I’m guessing it’s Archie’s. “He wants me to spend four thousand dollars on his mother?!”

    “Yup. He wants her to have two gifts. One of them needs to be the main. The other can be fancy ass chocolates or something.”

    “Right, but probably not gas station chocolates.”

    “Quit stressing, Holls, you’ve got this.”

    I don’t know why, but for the life of me I can’t see this ending well…

She has sold over a quarter of a million books around the globe.

    In her previous life (i.e. before having children), Melanie got her Bachelor of Science from the University of Alberta, then went on to work in the soul-sucking customer service industry for a large cellular network provider that shall remain nameless (unless you write her personally – then she’ll dish). On her days off, she took courses and studied to become a Chartered Mediator. That designation landed her a job at the R.C.M.P. as the Alternative Dispute Resolution Coordinator for ‘K’ Division. Having had enough of mediating arguments between gun-toting police officers, she decided it was much safer to have children so she could continue her study of conflict in a weapon-free environment (and one which doesn’t require makeup and/or nylons).

    Melanie resides in Edmonton with her husband, three young children, and their adorable but neurotic one-eyed dog. When she’s not writing novels, Melanie loves reading (obviously), snuggling up on the couch with her family for movie night (which would not be complete without lots of popcorn and milkshakes), and long walks in the woods near her house. She also spends a lot more time thinking about doing yoga than actually doing yoga, which is why most of her photos are taken ‘from above’. She also loves shutting down restaurants with her girlfriends. Well, not literally shutting them down, like calling the health inspector or something–more like just staying until they turn the lights off.

    She is represented by Suzanne Brandreth of The Cooke Agency International.

    Jenna Davis-Wilson and her two lively children have returned to the
    nostalgic home of her childhood in Madison County, Nebraska. This
    spontaneous decision to take up permanent residency at the old Victorian
    manor following her father’s sudden death ushers in a myriad of unexpected
    twists and turns. Jenna’s husband, Marcus, a well-respected obstetrician in
    New York, also relocates to smalltown Tilden where tensions mount with a
    longtime family friend and her opinionated, prejudicial tirades. The
    discovery of a dark family secret locked away for decades in an old attic
    trunk threatens to overshadow a highly esteemed ancestral image and brings
    into question everything that Jenna believes about her cherished
