Some days feel like years, but in Ember Brycin’s case just the opposite is true. She had only been in the Otherworld for a day or two when she returned back to the Earth's realm. But it is three years later on Earth. Em is now 22. It would matter if she was human, but she’s not. She is a Dae, part Demon and part Fay, with a little Dark Dweller thrown in to make her even more of a freak.
Seeing Seattle rebuilt only confirms she has been gone three years. For her it was not long ago that the Seattle area was just rubble of concrete and death. All done by her hand.
One thing that hasn’t changed, though, is her undeniable connection to Eli Dragen, who is sexy, gorgeous, and even more volatile and frustrating. But her problems go way past him. The Seelie Queen of the Otherworld still holds Mark, Em’s father, and her friends, Ryan, and Josh as hostages. Em needs to rescue them without, once again, getting caught and being used as a pawn to help the Queen regain possession of Earth. At the same time Ember is in hot water with Lars, the Unseelie King, after breaking her contract with him.
As some secrets have come to light others seem to become even more enigmatic. The only truth Ember knows is,everyone is harboring secrets. As Eli’s past is revealed, Em understands more clearly why he acts the way he does and how much their lives are intertwined. But she also knows Eli is holding something back, something that could change their relationship forever.
Em herself continues to wrestle with her feelings toward Torin and her own secret she’s withholding from Kennedy. As the tension for war mounts between the Seelie and Unseelie (Light and Dark), the tension at the Dark Dweller’s compound mounts even more as they prepare to obtain the sword no matter what the price. But is Ember the answer to the location of the sword? Is she the one to fulfill the prophecy? As usual nothing is ever what it seems.
Stacey Marie Brown by day is an Interior/Set Designer, by night a writer of Paranormal Fantasy, Adventure, and Literary Fiction. She grew up in Northern California, where she ran around on her family’s farm, raising animals, riding horses, playing flashlight tag, and turning hay bales into cool forts. Even before she could write, she was creating stories and making up intricate fantasies. Writing came as easy as breathing. She later turned that passion into acting, living and traveling abroad, and designing. Though she had never stopped writing, moving back to San Francisco seemed to have brought it back to the forefront and this time it would not be ignored.
When she’s not writing she’s out hiking, spending time with friends, traveling, listening to music, or designing.

Title: BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS YOU’RE DEAD
Author: Patricia Eimer
EBook: 368 pages
Release Date: February 24, 2014
Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes and Noble
Not Even Death Keeps a Good Demoness Down
There’s never an end to the crazy when you’re demon spawn. Not that Faith Bettincourt’s complaining. She’s been patching things up with her angelic on-again off-again boyfriend, Matt, and her best-friend-turned-sister-in-law is soon giving birth to the Anti-Christ Part Deux. Oh, and Faith is saving kids from Death in her pediatric unit one soul at a time. Life is good.
Until Faith accidentally runs over the Angel of Death and is forced to take his place. Now she’s taking lives instead of saving them. Which is kind of a problem when you’re a nurse. As if that weren’t bad enough, she is suddenly thrust into the worst scenario of them all--Matt’s ex Brenda is back, and she’s brought the Apocalypse with her.
Faith’s not about to give up the world...or her man. But when the chips are down, what’s a demoness supposed to do? Besides take matters into her own hands, of course.
Patricia Eimer is a small-town girl fated to be a storyteller. After a stint of "thinking practically," she earned degrees in Business and Economics, but her passion has always been a good book. She lives in Pittsburgh with her two kids and a husband who learned the art of frozen pizza to give her more time to write. When she’s not writing she can be found fencing or arguing with her dogs about plot points. Most days the beagle wins, but the dalmatian is a close second. She’s a distant third.
“It’s not her time.” I pictured the most remote, desolate island on Earth, a small spit of land near Antarctica covered in snow and surrounded by icy water, and did my best to make it seem real in my mind. A window in reality slid open behind Michael, opening on the coldest part of that very remote bit of nowhere.
“What’s one day? Twenty-four measly hours? What does it mean in the end?”
“It’s everything.” I lifted my hand up to his chest and gave him a solid jolt of dark power straight to the sternum.

Title: PAN’S CONQUEST
Author: Aubrie Dionne
EBook: 119 pages
Release Date: February 24, 2014
Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes and Noble
Syrinx pulled a fast one on Pan to escape his raging lust. The God of Chastity wasn't about to break her vows and succumb to his temptations. Transported to the twenty-first century, she runs a florist shop—fulfilling her fake, mortal life. Until the breathtaking Parker Thomas hires her to decorate his grand estate for a gala. Five hundred roses? Easy enough. Except Parker makes her feel things she can't ignore...
As the God of Fertility, Pan is used to maidens flocking in droves to his pastures. So when Syrinx denies him, he's determined to win the one that got away. He poses as a mortal to get close to her, but he doesn't count on falling hard for his conquest—hard enough to make a life and stay.
But Syrinx is falling in love with a man that doesn't exist. Can Pan hide his identity forever, or will the truth tear them apart?
I’ve been asked to write a post about Goddesses in honor of my book Pan’s Conquest which just released this week! My book features the Goddess of Chastity, Syrinx. We are all our own goddess of something, and I’d love to hear in the comments section which goddess everyone following this blog is. I consider myself the Goddess of Impatience! Or perhaps, the Goddess of Procrastination!
In honor of Goddesses, I’d like to share my top five goddess’s with you and why I chose them:
#1. Gaia : The personification of Earth. Gaia is the great mother of all, creator and giver of birth to Earth and its universe. I like to think of her as mother nature. If she were here today, she’d definitely be an environmentalist. I’m dreaming up a book about her as I write this blog.
#2. Athena: The goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, just warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill. So she’s basically good at everything. I especially love how this goddess is a strong and smart woman who led troops in battle. How cool is that? Out of all the goddesses, I think I’d chose to be Athena.
#3. Aura: The divine personification of the breeze. She is depicted as a billowing sail in an overhead arch. Not only does she have a cool name, but I’d like to think she can transport herself in an instant, reappear and disappear. The breeze can be warm, but it can also be icy cold and fickle. I can only imagine what her personality would be like! Probably tempestuous.
#4. Hebe: The goddess of youth. Even though her name is kind of funny, think about the power she has. In mythology, she grants a god’s wish to become young again in order to fight a formidable foe. So she’s the fountain of youth. She’ll probably never have wrinkles, and her metabolism will never slow down- like mine when I reached thirty. I used to be able to eat a whole bag of cookies, and now if I eat one, it goes right to my belly.
#5. Syrinx: The Goddess of Chastity. I’ve always liked Syrinx because of the flute solo I play by Debussy. You’d have to hear the solo in order to fully appreciate it. You can listen here on you tube:
It’s sad, longing, mysterious- the music made me wonder exactly what Syrinx was thinking. As the story goes, Syrinx turns herself into a reed to avoid Pan’s temptations. Pan cuts the reed and makes his flute. The story is a sad one, and has always stayed with me over all these years- enough that I decided to make my own ending and give them both a HEA (Happily Ever After.) Please check out my book, Pan’s Conquest, available for a limited time for only $.99!
He wants to be with me forever… I love Seth and I can’t really picture my life without him, and he loves me too, God knows he says it enough, but I didn’t know he’s actually thinking about forever…is he even capable of forever?
