ABOUT HALO CITY

 

When a massive group of angels known as nephilim—half human, half angel—had been found by the Royal Council, they were taken to Halo City. Instead of cleansing the Earth with a flood, which had been done before, the Royal Council created a place just for this group of angels. Upon meeting the alkins, a particular one by the name of Davin, refused to give up on helping Michael deal with his struggles. Together, they discovered a strange being that would appear at the Crossroads at unexpected times. Souls wandering there is nothing new, but this one aged as time passed. Mystified, they both searched for answers while refraining from telling the Twelve about her. Who is this being that has enraptured Michael’s attention? And will Michael finally forgive himself and find the happiness that he yearns to have?

Hearing
only half of what he said, I concentrated on a light that had suddenly appeared
over the dirt road. After the glow faded, a little girl appeared. She was about
Alexa Rose’s age.
“That
never happened before.” Davin seemed curious too.
“What
never happened?” Moving quietly, we were now deeper into the grass…between
where Halo City and Crossroads intersected.
“The
light. I’ve never seen one here before.” Davin seemed flabbergasted.
“You mean
you’ve been doing this too?”
“Well…I
wanted to speak to one, but I never did. Cause…we’re not suppose to,” Davin
gritted through his teeth as his tone became stern. “I don’t want to get in
trouble.”
Ignoring
him, I continued to gaze. This little girl had me under her spell. Something
about her was captivating. I felt strangely connected to her as I watched her
searching, looking lost and confused. Wanting to help her, I nudged forward,
but I was stopped.
“Are you
crazy? What part of ‘I don’t want to get in trouble’ didn’t you understand?”
“Davin.”
I bored my eyes into his. “Don’t touch me and don’t stop me. I want to talk to
her.”
Davin
furrowed his brows and spoke. “Michael, you don’t have a thing for little
girls, do you?”
“What?” I
asked, feeling confused.
“You
know…old men liking little girls. You’re not a pervert, are you?”
“No! What
gave you that idea? You’re _____.”
We
stopped arguing when the light blinded us, then started to fade. “No….” I
whispered under my breath. I didn’t know why but I got extremely livid with
him. I had missed my chance. He was always in my way…always trying to keep me
on the right path. Then, when I realized Davin’s good intentions, I calmed
down. “Davin…next time, don’t stop me.”
“Or you’ll
what?” he challenged.
“Never
mind.” I didn’t know how I knew; I just knew she would come back. Without
thinking, I said loudly in my mind, “You’re
a pain
.”
Davin
looked at me strangely. “I’m not a pain. And how did you do that?”
“Do
what?”
“You
spoke to my mind. You had a conversation with my mind and you didn’t even open
your mouth.”
“You’re
crazy. You’re hearing things.”
“Do it
again.”
“No.”
“Chicken.”
There he
went with that chicken word. “Fine.” And so I did, just to get him off my back.
I said it loudly in my mind.
“What?
I’m not a fart face,” Davin chuckled.

 

“I didn’t
say that.”

“Ahhh!” I pressed my hands to his chest. “Why are you such an ass?” I couldn’t believe I’d said it, but it felt so good! Then I thought, How does he bring out the worst in me? I was not an angry person, and I didn’t normally shoot out cuss words. Mom and Gamma had taught me better than that.

Unexpectedly, he gripped my wrists, moving them behind me, and drew me into him. My heart heaved in and out from being a breath away from his lips and from being exhausted from all the energy I was releasing. He set his eyes deeply into mine and exhaled. “Everything was just great until you walked into my life. I know who I am and my purpose in life, but you are making me confused. For the first time, I want more. The worst part of this is that I can’t have you, even if you allowed it.” He paused, searching for words. “I want you to ____ me, ‘cause if I knew that you ever cared about me that way, I would give up everything just to be with you. I don’t know why. And that scares me more than anything I’ve ever known. So there is the answer to your question. Satisfied?”

Cover Reveal & Giveaway: Crossroads Saga Book 1 by Mary Ting

It’s finally time!!

We are so excited to share the BRAND NEW covers to author Mary Ting’s young adult series CROSSROADS SAGA.

Every day this week (March 24th – 28th) we will be revealing the covers to each novel in the series. The series has gotten a complete makeover. I love the new covers and think they fit the story perfectly!

Not only will we be revealing the covers, but we also have a little teaser from each book. Oh, and a game for you all to play along. 😉

So, are you ready? Check out book one, CROSSROADS below. Let us know what you think of the cover!

 

Check out the FULL COVER….

Protecting her from the fallen was his duty.

Falling in love was never part of his plan.

Loving her was forbidden.

Being with her was all that mattered, even if it meant he would be exiled for all eternity.

Claudia Emerson’s life is about to change when her good friend, who coincidentally shares the same first and last name, dies in a tragic accident. Distraught at the loss of her friend, Claudia’s dreams become tumultuous, and through them she mysteriously travels to another world called Crossroads. There, she unexpectedly meets Michael, a nephilim–half angel, half human. Now that she’s been there, fallen and demons are after her, suspecting she must be special, and it is up to Michael and the other nephilim to protect her. Her dream becomes a nightmare as more secrets are revealed about who she really is, and the true identities of the people she loves most.

PRAISE FOR CROSSROADS…

“Crossroads contains action, twists and romance that has you flipping through the pages so fast that you’re at the end and ready for more before you know it.” – Gabby, Nashville Young Adult Fiction Examiner/What’s Beyond Forks

“Crossroads is an exciting debut book with a rich paranormal mythology, unique angel-lore, forbidden romance, action, suspense and plot twists. With her detailed writing and a plot that flow wells, Mary created a world I enjoyed visiting, and a story that was hard to put down.” – Katie with Mundie Moms

“After I became your guardian angel, I never wanted to leave your sight. I wanted to protect you and keep you safe. If I were a mere human, I couldn’t do that. I found my purpose.” He paused, setting his eyes deeply into mine. “If I had to die to save you, I would. I would do it in a _________. Life isn’t worth living, unless you have someone worth dying for.”

Today we share the cover for MY CLARITY, as well as a teaser and giveaway!
 
 
 
 
 
Synopsis 1Still reeling from the death of her father, Alexandria hopes to find both independence and reprieve from her grief by heading off to college. However, life throws her a serious curveball when she discovers that her roommate isn’t quite the person she imagined it would be.

An inevitable encounter, an undeniable attraction, and an unexpected chance at love—will it be enough?

 
 
Here is what bloggers are saying about the early ARC.

“Grab your tissue box, it will

come in handy as M. Clarke/Mary Ting pulls each tender heart string right from the

beginning of this touching love story!”

“At first glance, no one would believe Elijah’s tough guy exterior hides a genuine and

giving heart. But, you cannot help whom you fall in love with and when opposites attract,

the chemistry is undeniable!” –InD’tale Magazine

 

M. Clarke/Mary Ting blew me out of the water with this book. I am in awe

and in love with this epic tale. Elijah Cooper is now my #1 book boyfriend. ~ Sammie’s Book Club, for book lovers

 

“Through the darkness of our pasts, we are all looking for a little clarity. For Alexandria,

Elijah could be just that. My Clarity is a story of love and hope, that through the hardest

times we find clarity in each other.” ~ Spare Time Book Blog

 

“Elijah & Alex sizzle in this wonderful page-turner by M. Clarke. I absolutely could not

put it down! This book was 5 stars amazing!” ~ Janie, CrossAngels

From Alexandria’s point of view

Never taking his eyes off me, he rested his hand on my shoulder, and then gingerly slid down my arm, giving me pleasurable tingles…EVERYWHERE. Afraid to move the tiniest of my muscles, I felt locked in place. I was enjoying him far too much. I didn’t want it to end. When he finally reached my hand, he pulled it up to his mouth and made the most pleasurable groan I’ve ever heard.
Looking exhausted and dazed, he shifted his eyes to the cookie in my hand, and mumbled slowly, “I think I’ll have that cookie now.”

Nothing registered until I saw his lips part, and my fingers disappeared in his mouth. Oh. My. GOD! My pulse skyrocketed, and I whimpered from the warmth of his tongue and the sensation that shot up my arm. My fingers were very wet sliding out of his mouth. I even felt the feather-light graze of his teeth; and I could swear every single muscle in my body became limp.

His jaw worked quickly, chewing. It was the sexiest thing I’d ever seen. He made eating a cookie SO hot. After he swallowed, he turned the other way, picked up my cup of milk, and chugged down whatever was left.

Looking like he couldn’t believe he just drank milk, he placed the cup down. “Good night, Alex. Don’t ever go racing without me,” he ordered, and then he left.

What just happened? Milk and cookies will never be the same for me…EVER.

Note: Sexual Content

When he probed with more questions about what I looked for in query letters, I told him I liked romance novels and I basically looked for potential book boyfriends.

“Book boyfriends?” He chuckled out loud. As I watched, his chest moved to the rhythm of his laugh. “Really?” He took his last bite and chugged his coffee.

“Yes…really.” I had already finished my plate since I was too nervous to talk.

“Is that like for people who can’t get one in real life?” He was totally amused by this notion.

“No…silly,” I giggled. “Readers read books to help them escape from the daily routine of life. Many of these romance books have a swoon-worthy, gorgeous guy with really nice abs and a six pack, who can deliver wild, hot sex.” Just the thought alone made me turn red and I froze when he gave me a heated look. Then, his eyes concentrated on my lips, shifted to my breasts, then back up to my eyes when I said ‘wild, hot sex.’ I just described him and what he could potentially do.

Gravitating toward me, his eyes locked lustfully on mine. His lips were just inches away as they parted to speak and I didn’t know how he got so close to me. “I would like to be your book boyfriend,” he said with the hottest sound that could sing out of his lustrous, lick-able mouth. The puff of his breath on my lips sizzled way down to my sex. He reached out to my face, his thumb sensually sliding, feather light to touch my bottom lip with one long, slow stroke. As I watched his tongue glide over his bottom lip at the same time, I quivered beyond control.

Completely dumbfounded, I sat there staring at him and in my mind, I had already taken off my clothes for him. Blinking because that was all I could do, I wanted to say yes, but my pride and my head knew better and stopped me.
Suddenly, he broke his gaze and it felt like he had just dumped ice water over my head. “Is that what a book boyfriend would say and do?” he chuckled as he picked up our plates and took them to the kitchen.

What just happened? I was almost certain my face was deep red, because I felt it down to my toes.

Check out the NEW cover to SOMETHING GREAT…
 
 

She didn’t know what she was missing…until he found her.

Maxwell Knight was positively trouble, dangerously good-looking, and seductively charming. He was everything Jeanella didn’t need in her life. Only Maxwell didn’t see it that way. His pursuit was relentless, making her even more determined to push him away.

Fresh out of college, life was simple and plain for Jeanella Mefferd. Every part of her life was smooth sailing; her friends, her job, and even the guy she’d started dating. Then one night, while at dinner, she spotted someone who made her feel things she’d never felt before—dangerous, heart pounding and breathless heat. Thinking she would never see him again, she brushed it off, but when she started to run into him unexpectedly, all she could think of was how he made her feel with his sweet flirtations. Everything about Maxwell Knight screamed trouble, especially when she found out he was her new boss’s son. Now, heading to a New York fashion show, would she be able to focus on her career instead of Maxwell, who had been scheduled to attend with her? As much as she tried to forget their encounters, his good looks, smooth words and determination to win her over gravitated her toward him. The next thing she knew, her mind was utterly consumed by him. Would she be willing to ignore all the dangerous signs and jump into his arms? Or would she miss out on the chance of finding something great?

SOMETHING GREAT on Amazon & BN for only $.99!
