Fate & Fury by the fabulous Quinn Loftis

OMG it's out! It's out!  Today, my uber talented friend, Quinn Loftis, released the next book in her Grey Wolves series.  It's called Fate & Fury.  It's already tearing up the charts, y'all!  Get your copy, people!

Here's the cover:



Is that thing not amazing?  OMG  And here is the blurb:

FATE & FURY


The last few days have been the darkest of Sally’s life.  After experiencing the joy of finding her mate, she now suffers the pain of losing everything she holds dear. Both the Romanian and Serbian packs have been captured, ripping Sally’s soul mate away from her almost as soon as she had found him. Her best friend and the emotional glue that usually holds Sally together, Jacque Pierce, lies writhing in a restless coma, having been put down by Desdemona’s dark magic. Jennifer Adams, the unshakable one, has revealed to her friends and her mate that she is pregnant, but the Fates have marked her unborn baby for death.  Though she rails against the darkness, deep inside Jen knows that Decebel’s baby must die as payment for her own life, and the knowledge is tearing her soul to pieces. Cypher, King of the Warlocks, has claimed Jacque’s mother as his mate and agreed to help Desdemona open a door that would release a horde of demons from beyond the Veil.    

Though her world is crashing down around her, Sally holds out hope.  The Great Luna is not sitting idly by.  She has commanded the Fey council to call upon the packs—all of them.  And though Cypher looks for a way to open the Veil for Desdemona, he struggles to protect Lilly and the wolves at the same time.  Peri, the ever-courageous High Fae, and a contingent of the remaining females of the Romanian and Serbian packs, push on through the rough Carpathian Mountains. Though they are bound to the human realm, they continue to search for a way to cross over to the land of the Fey. Meanwhile, in reluctant obedience to the Great Luna, the Fey council sends representatives to the far corners of the globe, meeting with the pack Alphas.  The Fey must convince the Alphas of every pack to lay aside their petty territorial squabbles and battles of dominance. If they refuse, both the humans and the supernatural races will fall at Mona’s feet.

Sally holds to a shred of hope. Though Vasile, Decebel, and their pack mates endure the torture of the In-Between, living their worst nightmares over and over, Sally holds. Though she knows that it is only a matter of time before their wolves take over, she holds. Sally knows that if the males die, then so too will their mates who have performed the Blood Rites, including her best friends Jen and Jacque.  Yet she holds. If the males lose themselves to their wolves and turn feral, so too do their mates.  Still she holds. Though Vasile, the strongest Alpha in their history to unite the wolves, is lost beyond the Veil, Sally holds.  Though Decebel, the only other wolf besides Vaile strong enough to unite the packs, suffers beyond the Veil, Sally will hold.  No one is left to unite their race, and defeat Desdemona. Yet Sally still holds.  She holds out hope that the Great Luna will not abandon them, cannot abandon them.  Throughout the centuries, the Great Luna has always provided a gypsy healer to the packs, especially in times of great need. Now Sally is that healer. Sally fears what role she has to play in the defeat of Desdemona, but she will play it.  Though heaven and hell unite against her, she WILL play it.

For too long the supernatural races have lived in separation, warring amongst themselves, allowing trivial power plays and selfish disputes to keep them from uniting. That separation has made them weak. Now, being summoned as a collective force to the same land, will they come?  Will they come in numbers greater than have been seen in centuries? Will they destroy each other and save Mona the trouble, or will they finally unite and fight as one?

Down to You NEW Cover Reveal

My hubby found that this is already showing on the Berkley paperback edition of Down to You, so I thought I'd go ahead and show it off to y'all.

Introducing the new Bad Boys series covers, book one Down to You.  Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep! I hope you love it!!!  Also, hang around to see the bottom.  *whispers*  There's a giveaway!


One girl. Twin brothers. An uncommon triangle. 

When college student Olivia Townsend returned home to help her father run his business, she never imagined a complication like Cash and Nash Davenport—twin brothers different in so many ways but with one thing in common: an uncontrollable desire for Olivia.

Cash is dangerous, sexy, and bad to the bone—a man whose kisses make Olivia forget she is playing with fire. Nash is successful, reliable and intensely passionate—and already taken. But all it takes is one soft stroke to make Olivia forget he belongs to someone else.

However, Olivia is in for a surprise. These boys have a secret that should make her run away as far and as fast as she can. If only it wasn’t too late. A sensual game between three players has begun, and it’s about to spin deliriously out of control.

Share this on Facebook or Twitter and tag me in the post and you'll be automatically entered to win a signed copy of the book with the original cover, as well as a swag pack that includes a t-shirt featuring the original cover, too:)  Go, Cash, go!  I'll be drawing a winner on Thursday morning and announcing it on my blog, as well as Facebook and Twitter.  The contest is open internationally.  Must be 18 or older to win.

AND THE WINNER IS... Taneesha Freidus!  Please email me at m.leighton.books@gmail.com withint 24 hours to collect your prize.  If I haven't heard from her, I'll draw another winner.  

Thank you each and every one for being absolutely awesome!!!  <3

The Wild Ones with...MORE

This post was supposed to go up yesterday, the official release day of the new, steamier edition of The Wild Ones, but...

*sigh*

It didn't go off as planned.  *another sigh as I bite my tongue*  I'm still not sure what happened.  The price was wrong, the cover was wrong, it wasn't showing up on some sites (and still isn't on one that I know of) BUT, today most of that is fixed.  It still isn't easy to find in some cases, but I'm providing links to facilitate that for you.  I wish I could do more to make this right and / or speed things along, but my hands are tied.  Not literally, of course.  If one of the culprits for this fiasco had gotten close enough to tie my hands yesterday, I might've been tempted to head-butt them:)  hehe  To say it was a trying day would be like calling the ocean a puddle.  ;)

Anyhooooo, there's no use crying over spilled milk, so today I'm moving forward.  I still got to (and will continue to get to) see my lovely little book on bookstore shelves, an experience which I hope never to tire of.  To say that it's both wonderful and surreal would be a tragic understatement!  I get all verklempt just thinking about it.  *sniffles*  And if you don't recognize the verklempt reference, you need to brush up on your classic SNL;)  Talk amongst yourselves *said in best Linda Richmond voice*

Sorry. I digress.  Okay, so in answer to one question I've been getting, if you have an older edition, it will NOT automatically update:(  But don't worry, you won't be lost if you don't read the new version.  I would never do that to y'all!  It would be like holding you hostage and I could never do that!  In essence, this version contains some additional steam *winks* (no fade-to-black here!) as well as some explanation in places they felt like some clarification was needed.  Also, some questions were answered.  All in all, just a little extra here and there, but nothing that changes the outcome of the story.  Y'all know I'm a happily-ever-after girl and that will NEVER change:)

I have links where most of you can purchase the new edition of The Wild Ones, but you can also walk right into many of your favorite stores and find it there as well.  *grins from ear to ear*  That's my thing now. It's like a treasure hunt.  I'm going into every store I pass to see if they carry it.  LOL  You may or may not find me standing in the aisle staring at it for inordinately long periods of time. Okay, you totally will.  hehe  In a few weeks, the entire Eastern seaboard will know what a happy nutball I am:D  But I don't care. If they knew what it felt like to have a dream like this come true, they'd do the same thing, right?  Right!

Lastly, before I give y'all another sneak peek at the cover (which still hasn't updated on some sites, but don't worry--as long as the edition is March 5th, you're good to go), I want to take a second to thank you again.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!  *heartfelt and slightly tearful hug*  None of this would be possible without you.  This dream of mine wouldn't be coming true in the amazing way that it is if it weren't for the love and support and encouragement and overall AWESOMENESS of each and every one of you.  I'm more grateful than I could explain, even with the help of a thousand thesauruses in fifty different languages.

I love y'all!  I really, really do!

Okay, back to Trick.  Here he is!  I hope you fall in love with him all over again:)
