Feature & Follow # 33

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The purpose is to meet new people and gain more followers in the book blogging community. If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers. But you have to know, the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

* ~ * ~ * ~ *

Here’s this week’s question:

We are about to see a lot of posts & tweets about reader conventions, RT, BEA, ALA and many more are starting soon. Which one would you love to attend? Where and why?

As I live in Australia, it is not currently possible for me to attend any of the conventions held in the United States even though I would very much like to.
If I could though, I would love to attend the BEA. It would be awesome to visit New York City and meet fellow bloggers and author's in person.

This weeks swoon comes from
A Job From Hell
(Ancient Legends # 1)
Jayde Scott
The Blurb:
The moment Amber starts her summer job in Scotland and sets eyes upon Aidan, her fate is sealed. Summoned by an ancient bond, she can never love another. Lost in the woods one night Amber enters Aidan's deadly world when she unknowingly participates in a paranormal race and promptly wins the first prize...a prize worth killing for.

In a world of forbidden love, ancient enemies, legends and rituals, nothing is as it seems and no one can be trusted. Life will never be the same again, unless she enters the Otherworld. But to do so, Amber must die...
The Swoon:
The soft moonlight cast lazy shadows on Amber's pale skin. She stretched in my arms like a cat in front of a hearth, but I could hear her heart racing, hammering against her chest. Ever so slowly I lowered my lips and brushed hers, then pressed a little tighter. Her mouth opened under my gentle pressure and she wrapped her arms around my neck. Heat rushed through my body, the sensation new and frightening at the same time. My thumb brushed down her neck where the blood pumped the hardest, calling to me. My lips followed the trail, barely touching her skin. Her pulse thumped against my lips. Hunger stirred inside me.

My Tease for this week comes from a Novella I managed to read in one night.

Her Dark Angel
Felicity Heaton

*** WARNING ***

The Blurb:

An angel without a mission, Apollyon lives trapped in Hell guarding the bottomless pit. Surrounded by endless darkness, he longs to fly free on Earth once more but his master hasn’t called him in centuries. When the call finally comes, it’s to serve a new master, a beautiful woman he has often watched over, a woman who has always captivated him.

Serenity is shocked when a gorgeous black-winged angel shows up in her city of Paris claiming that she called him when she was only casting a simple vengeance spell. He’s no other than the angel of death! When Apollyon offers to obey her and help her have revenge on her cheating ex-boyfriend, she can’t resist the temptation, but can she resist him? Can an angel as dark as Apollyon ever fall for a mortal woman like her?

Their charade as lovers quickly becomes reality when one dance leads to another and Apollyon proves that he’s as sinful as he looks. His sensual and hungry touch brings Serenity back to life, freeing her from the hurt of being betrayed and reigniting her passion, but she can’t ignore her growing fear. Lost in their moment together, Apollyon realises that there is a reason he heard her call—he’s in love with her.

But will Serenity see past the wings and believe that Apollyon returns her feelings and won’t hurt her? When her ex-boyfriend asks her to forgive him and be with him again, will she take the easy route or will she find the courage to fly away with her dark angel?

Dark, passionate and erotic, Her Dark Angel is a tale of intense desire and deepest forbidden love guaranteed to get your heart racing.

And My Teasers: (Yes, there is more than one)

"I am not asexual." The way he said it made it clear that he would be happy to prove it to her right now in the coffee shop.


She really was beautiful.
And he wanted her.
He had never wanted a mortal woman before.
But he wanted her.


"Thank you." She leaned over and pressed a kiss to his cheek.

She hesitated there, her mouth close to his and her heart beating wildly, awaiting his reaction. She hadn't thought about what she was doing. It had been instinct to kiss him.

He was still a moment, as though she had shocked him, and then...

Mmm... I wonder what happens next.
