Experiment in Terror #7

By Karina Halle

Genre: Romantic Suspense/Horror
Age Group: General adult 17 +

Available on Amazon and Smashwords

Book Description:

It’s one thing to bring the woman you love back into your life. It’s another to try and keep her there. For Dex Foray, convincing Perry Palomino to open herself to their burgeoning relationship has been more challenging than hunting ghosts, battling demons and stalking Sasquatch combined. Add in the fact that the only way they can keep their Experiment in Terror show running is to take on a third partner in the form of the mysterious Maximus Jacobs — all while investigating a sinister voodoo sect in New Orleans — and you’ve got the perfect Southern storm and a recipe for disaster. Luckily, Dex has never been one to back down, even when his life –and heart — are on the line. 
Come Alive is told from Dex’s POV.



About the Author

The daughter of a Norwegian Viking and a Finnish Moomin, Karina Halle grew up in Vancouver, Canada with trolls and eternal darkness on the brain. This soon turned into a love of all things that go bump in the night and a rather sadistic appreciation for freaking people out. Like many of the flawed characters she writes, Karina never knew where to find herself and has dabbled in acting, make-up artistry, film production, screenwriting, photography, travel writing and music journalism. She eventually found herself in the pages of the very novels she wrote (if only she had looked there to begin with). 
Karina holds a screenwriting degree from Vancouver Film School and a Bachelor of Journalism from TRU. Her travel writing, music reviews/interviews and photography have appeared in publications such as Consequence of Sound, Mxdwn and GoNomad Travel Guides. She currently lives on an island on the coast of British Columbia where she's preparing for the zombie apocalypse. 
Karina is represented by Scott Waxman of the Waxman Leavell Literary Agency

Now you have all been so patient with me rambling so how about a little treat???

An excerpt from Come Alive!!!


I whipped around and pulled out the elevator’s STOP button. The elevator lurched then came still.
“What are you doing?” she screeched, wild-eyed.
“Nothing you need to worry about, baby,” I told her, placing both hands on either side of her head and kissing her hard, hard enough that she was flattened against the wall. We didn’t discuss it, but we naturally played our relationship cool in front of Jimmy. Now I was making up for lost time.
I bit her lower lip, pulling it between my teeth. She moaned and I smiled.
“You ever had sex in an elevator?” I asked, taking my mouth to her sweet neck and alternating between wet licks and fierce sucks. I didn’t care if she ended up with a million hickeys. The more the better.
“No.”
“Anywhere in public?”
“Does a Canadian national park count?” she whispered, sounding both turned-on and uneasy.
“No, it doesn’t,” I murmured, my hands cupping her breasts now. “Sounds like something we have to fix, doesn’t it?”
“Isn’t this illegal?”
I pulled away and looked at her. “Elevator malfunction. Living it up while I’m going down.”
She smiled and then arched her back to give me more access to her fantastic breasts. “You can’t use Aerosmith as an excuse.”
“I can do anything I want,” I grunted, pressing my erection into her hip.
“My goodness,” she exclaimed at the pressure.
I grinned, my hands folding down her bra and rolling her nipples between my fingers.
“I told you. I’m always hard for you, I’m just good at hiding it. Which, actually, isn’t easy when your dick is the size of your leg.”
She laughed and lowered my head to her breasts, my mouth yearning, searching.
“Hello?” a voice said from behind me.
Startled, I turned around, expecting someone in the elevator with us. I was probably expecting it to be inhuman as well.
But the voice repeated. “Hello? Are you okay? Is this car two? I have reports you have stopped.”
Shit. It was the security on the speaker. In some elevators, pulling out the stop button just stops the elevator. I guess in this one it alerted security. Cockblockers!

ONE MORE THING!!!  You can check out all my past blog posts tagged Karina Halle by clicking here.

Sealed With A Curse

Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other twenty-something girls—with one tiny exception: They're the products of a curse that backfired and gave each of them unique powers that make them, well, a little weird…

The Wird sisters are content to avoid the local vampires, werebeasts, and witches of the Lake Tahoe region—until one of them blows up a vampire in self-defense. Everyone knows vampires aren't aggressive, and killing one is punishable by death. But soon more bloodlust-fueled attacks occur, and the community wonders if the vampires of Tahoe are plague-ridden.

Celia reluctantly agrees to help Misha, the handsome leader of an infected vampire family. But Aric, the head of the werewolf pack determined to destroy Misha's family to keep the area safe, warns Celia to stay out of the fight. Caught between two hot alphas, Celia must find a way to please everyone, save everyone, and—oh, yeah—not lose her heart to the wrong guy or die a miserable death. Because now that the evil behind the plague knows who Celia is, he's coming for her and her sisters. 

This Wird girl has never had it so tough.

Available now at Amazon and Barnes & Noble


Sealed With A Curse 

(Weird Girls #1)

By Cecy Robson

4 out of 5 STARS


This book was fantastic!  With an action packed plot that had me eagerly flipping pages to the great character developments between four very different sisters and some alphalicious hotties, I couldn't ask for more!

The plot starts with Celia, Taran, Shayna and Emme at vampire court facing some allegations that could have dire consequences.  Enter Misha.  Sexy master vampire that now has his sights on Celia.  Hmmm...  Things definitely get interesting when he later has a proposition for her.  Meanwhile, Celia and her inner tigress while out on a run come across a pack of weres with one sinfully delicious alpha leading the pack.  Enter Aric.  Yum.  Plenty of eye candy to go around as we are also introduced to some of his closest packmates.  

The players are set, the plot is unfolding and chaos ensues.  One of the things I like most about this new series by Cecy Robson is the fantastic character development.  The story is told from Celia's POV but she really is a package deal.  If you love her, you quickly love her quirky sisters and the strong bond that they share.  Taran, Shayna and Emme all have different abilities supernaturally speaking and all have qualities that I admire from strong, kick ass chicks.  Lots of characters introduced but all equally important and easy to keep track of.  

The plot...  Whoa.  Seriously, could anything else be thrown at the Weird Girls?  They have their hands full with vamps and weres.  Set at a steady pace, there is never a dull moment and I loved every minute of it!

Parting thoughts?  I felt the need to shower after this.  Poor Celia and Co really do have to fight dirty at times.  ;)  I'm so happy this is a series!  The continuing adventures will have me waiting eagerly for release day for future installments to see what other shenanigans they get into, and out of!  I also have high hopes for reoccurring roles from some of the other sexy men that were introduced.  More Aric?  Yes please!  

Now for some favorite quotes that show how humorous Cecy is!

I sighed.  Tigress, fore-breather, knife thrower, and Gypsy.  We sounded like headliners for a freak show.  All we needed was a bearded lady.  I sighed.  That's what happens when you're the bizarre products of a backfired curse.
~~~

And that's when Aric took off his shirt.   
The soft fabric skimmed over perfectly golden skin and rock-hard abdominals tight enough to launch a brick into orbit.  A whisper of hair traveled the length of his belly button to where his jeans hung low on his hips.   
Holy...   
Aric stopped removing his shirt when he pulled it just above his small, erect nipples.  This wasn't real.  This was some kind of Hollywood hottie video shoot on TV and all I wanted to do was hit pause.
~~~ 

Damn, my stomach growled like a cave full of pissed-off cheetahs ready to claw the nearest -- Ooh, doughnuts!

THE WEIRD GIRLS

Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other 20-something girls—with one tiny exception: they're products of a backfired curse that has given each of them unique powers that make them, well, a little weird… 

The Wird sisters are different from every race on earth—human and supernatural. When human society is no longer an option for them, they move in among the resident vampires, werebeasts, and witches of the Lake Tahoe region. Could this be the true home they’ve longed for? Um, not quite. After the sisters accidentally strip a witch of her powers in a bar brawl, they soon realize the mistake will cost them. Because to take on a witch means to take on her coven. And losing the battle isn’t an option.

Includes a preview of the first full-length novel in the Weird Girls series, Sealed with a Curse—as well as introductions to the Weird World, and a letter from the author.
Available for pre-order:  Amazon  ~ Barnes & Noble

My interview with Cecy 


Emmy:  Hey Cecy!  Thanks for this opportunity!

Cecy:  Hi, Emmy! Thank you for the opportunity to be on your blog. : D

Emmy:  Your father used to tell you stories growing up.  Have you always been surrounded by creative people?  People not afraid to let their imagination run wild?

Cecy:  My father told me lots of stories, he still does.  I didn’t understand then why he just didn’t read to me.  It took me a long time to realize it was because he couldn’t.  My father was illiterate most of his life. He continues to struggle with reading even small words.  But because of it, and his need to entertain his children, he was very creative and helped trigger my imagination.


Emmy:  You mention on your website that you had an active imagination growing up, were you writing then?  What TV shows or books sparked your imagination growing up?

Cecy:  I started writing May 1, 2009. I spent my childhood “pretending” a lot when I played with my toys and friends.  Anything and everything I read or saw sparked my creativity, but I was especially drawn to Marvel comics.  Super powers fascinated me—they still do.  Even now I still wish I could fly.

Emmy:  Do you have any siblings?

Cecy:  I have a brother named, Douglas.  We’re very close.

Emmy:  The novella was fantastic and a great introduction into a world I can't wait to read more about!  Such a unique twist on how they came into their powers...

Cecy:  Thank you. Since my girls are 1/2 Latina, and I’m 100%, I had to incorporate my heritage. What a better way than a curse? I swear the majority of Latinos are ├╝ber superstitious—like me!

Emmy:  Did you write the prequel novella before or after Sealed With A Curse?

Cecy:  I wrote it after.  In April my editor offered me a contract for the novella.  I was hesitant to do it because I wasn’t sure if I had enough time since I was swamped writing book 2, A CURSED EMBRACE.  My agent, Nicole, and my husband, Jamie, believed I could and encouraged me to do it.  I cranked it out in about two weeks.  I have to say I love how it turned out and it’s one of my favorite projects.

Emmy:  Which of the Wird sisters do you relate to most?

Cecy:  I relate to all of them for different reasons—from Shayna’s perkiness to Taran’s inappropriateness and likewise Emme’s shyness and Celia’s awkwardness and emotional strength.

Emmy:  So since 2009, what is the total count for re-writes/edits for the release of Sealed With A Curse?

Cecy:  Hmmm. That’s hard to say. Sealed with a Curse was developed from my original Weird Girls novel.  That first novel underwent at least 14 revisions.  When it went out on submission through my agent, my current editor, Jhanteigh, felt too much happened.  She asked me to take the first three chapters and make that my new Book 1.  Hence Sealed with a Curse was born.  I believe I did four revisions with my agent before it was resubmitted to Jhanteigh.  I’m grateful to Jhanteigh and Nicole, it’s a much stronger book and so is A CURSED EMBRACE—the remaining story of the original Weird Girls novel.

Emmy:  Paranormal creatures can be all kinds of sexy to all kinds of scary.  What creature would you most be afraid to run into in the middle of the night?  And which one would consider running to?

Cecy:  I’m scared senseless of the Headless Horseman.  There, I said it.  I’d definitely run into a big, strapping werewolf’s arms.  I have a soft spot for the lupines. ; D

Emmy:  How many books are planned for the series?  Will there be spin-offs or novellas for the sisters?

Cecy:  Currently Celia has four books and about three more coming. I’m currently brainstorming novels for Taran and Emme.  I already have two novellas written for Bren, Celia’s werewolf buddy, but both need to be lengthened.  I also have a novella for Taran.  It involves her meeting her lover’s ultraconservative parents. Let’s just say they aren’t taken by her “charm.”  There are also three spin-offs in the works.  Whew, I have A LOT of work to do.

Emmy:  What is your writing ritual like?  Music?  Certain drinks?  Candles?  Etc?  What helps you get in the creative mindset?

Cecy:  I use music to set the mood for a scene and help me work through it in my head.  When I actually sit down to write it, though, I need completely quiet in order to focus.  I also need a lot to drink since I’m sitting for hours.  Usually I have green tea and water on hand.


Emmy:  If you were stuck in the Twilight Zone and had to repeat the same day over and over, what album, book and drink would you have everyday and where would you be?

Cecy:  Oh, what a great question.  I’d have to say my butt would be seated at my favorite seafood restaurant with my husband and children while Springsteen’s live album 75-85 playing overhead.  Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows or Jim Butcher’s CHANGES would be next to my menu, and, as boring as it sounds, I’d be pounding water. I think being stuck in the Twilight Zone would make me thirsty.

Emmy:  Thanks Cecy! I hope these aren't repeating questions you've been asked  a lot already. I imagine a few are though.

Cecy:  Thank you, Emmy!  You’ve been incredibly cool to get to know.


The Weird Girls

By Cecy Robson

5 out of 5 STARS

Available December 4th, 2012


I knew I was going to love this.  I knew, even before finishing the first chapter, that this novella from the quirky and charming Cecy Robson was going to be unique and witty.

The Wird sisters consist of four very different women.  Celia is the "lead" sister.  I say lead because not only is this series told from her point of view, but she has the cold calculating demeanor of a tiger.  Oh wait, she can totally turn into one and I wouldn't mess with her if my life depended on it!  Shayna and Taran are both sassy in different ways and quite entertaining.  Emme is quiet and gentle but I can't wait to see what she might be hiding!  All wielding a different power and pretty awesome on their own, when they join forces they make one hell of a team.  The paranormal world is getting a brand new spin as we learn why they have powers and from what entities they may encounter.

The world building was fantastic.  For a novella, we aren't bogged down with too much information.  We get just enough mixed in with the fantastic plot to keep you turning the page eagerly in anticipation of what's to come.  The plot was fun.  Starting out in a bar, only craziness can ensue and craziness it is!  We are thrown into a world of witch craft and challenges as Celia, Shayna, Taran and Emme fight for their right to peace in the mystical place that is Lake Tahoe.

Some very dramatic things happen to Celia when she faces certain challenges making your heart stop, tears threaten to spill or laugh hysterically with everything that is going on.

I don't want to say too much about the plot!  I don't want to spoil anything but definitely give this series a try!  Not only is the world Cecy created unique, but the humor is fantastic and Cecy is just all kinds of awesome! She really is a sweet person and I'm so glad to have gotten the chance to know her on the internets and to read her work.  I am a fan for life now and I CANNOT WAIT to read Sealed With A Curse!  If this novella knocked my socks off, the first full length in the series is bound to kick major ass!

So what are you waiting for?  Go pre-order your copy of The Weird Girls today!  

Troubles and Treats (Chocolate Lovers #3) By Tara Sivec!


Troubles and Treats (Chocolate Lovers #3) 

By Tara Sivec

Release Date: November 30, 2012



Synopsis

Drew and Jenny have spent years being the envy of their friends with their out of control sex lives - well, not really. Mostly it makes their friends want to throw up in their mouths a little.

With two little kids and two busy lives, for the first time, Drew and Jenny aren't on the same page in the bedroom. Drew will stop at nothing to get his previously amorous wife back in the sack and Jenny will do anything for a full night of sleep.

Carter and Claire, and Jim and Liz are their usual (un)helpful selves and are full of advice for the disconnected duo, wanting nothing more than to help restore order to the usually happy couple's lives.

In the third and final installment of the Chocolate Lovers Series, will Drew and Jenny find the spark that's been missing in their marriage, or will the trouble they're having cause a stickier situation than the time Jenny poured honey all over Drew and he fused himself to a tree?

Excerpt

I thought it would be a bunch of arguing and pointing fingers about whose fault it is that we’re not having sex anymore.  

Maybe she doesn't think that’s the problem.  Shit, maybe that isn’t the problem.  Maybe it’s just my problem.  She’s not faking a work injury, she’s not cheating on me…what the hell else could it be?  A few years ago she cut me off from sex for a week because I gave her a Dutch Oven in bed one night.  While hilarious, it’s never a good idea when your wife is naked and getting ready to mount you. There was another time when I gave her a Wet Willy when she started coming.  

That wasn't meant to be hilarious, I read about it in Cosmo.  When she locked me out of the bedroom I grabbed the magazine and realized two of the pages were stuck together - sex tips and practical jokes.  Well played, Cosmo.  Well played.

Waiting on Wednesday {#24}






Hosted by Breaking the Spine, a way to share upcoming highly anticipated releases.

My highly anticipated release this week is Ever After by Kim Harrison with an expected release date of January 22nd, 2013.  


The ever after, the demonic realm that parallels the human world, is shrinking. If it disappears completely, so does all magic. It's up to witch-turned-daywalking-demon Rachel Morgan to avert catastrophe and keep life from changing... for the worse.

While saving the world is important, it isn't Rachel's only motivation. There's also the small fact that she caused the ley line to rip in the first place, setting off a chain reaction of unfortunate events. That little mistake has made her life forfeit unless she can fix it. It's also made her more than a few enemies, including the most powerful demon in the ever after—a terrifying entity who eats souls and now has an insatiable appetite for her. He's already kidnapped her friend and goddaughter to lure her out, and if Rachel doesn't give herself up soon, they'll die.

But Rachel has more than a few impressive and frightening skillls of her own, and she isn't going to hand over her soul and her life without one hell of a fight. She's also got a surpise: elven tycoon Trent Kalamack. With this unlikely ally beside her—a prospect both thrilling and unnerving—she's going to return to the ever after, kick some demon butt, rescue her loved ones... and prevent an apocalypse before it's too late. Or, at least that's the plan...



This is one of my absolute favorite series out there and I CANNOT FREAKING WAIT for this book!  The series is winding down but not in the least bit stale.  Book #11 in the series looks just as action packed as before and the anticipation is killing me!  There is still so much ground to cover and if there's a possibility that Rachel gets an HEA, I would hope it's finally, and openly, moving in that direction.  TEAM TRENCH!!!

So what's your WOW???

The Blogging Dead w/ Cat & Emmy {S3E5: Say The Word}



So the last couple of episodes of The Walking Dead have been a little crazy.  Hmmm.. Just a little?  Understatement!  Read below to see what Cat and I had to say about episode 5 from last Sunday, Say The Word.


Emmy:  Whoa Cat! Is the Governor just completely nuts or what?! What an intro into tonight's episode!  What did you think about the crazy hair brushing scene?


Cat:  I think that was the best opening scene so far this season. It was incredibly twisted and the chunk of scalp that came off was so disgusting. I loved it! I thought displaying floating zombie heads for his viewing pleasure was crazy, but keeping a decaying kid and placing bags over her head for "nap time" is truly insane.

Emily:  I completely agree.  But that's why I love this show so much.  I am continually surprised!

I still can't believe Rick lost it like he did last week. The killing spree wasn't a surprise but I was surprised by him throwing Glenn around.


Cat:  I think that scene showed just how far off the deep end Rick has gone. He has never been aggressive toward any of his own people (that I can remember) so yeah, attacking Glenn definitely proves that he's not all there.

Emmy:  Andrea annoys the hell out of me. She's kind of dumb to me. First, why the hell is she so trusting of the Governor and this new living arrangement? I can't understand that. She also harbors such resentment for being left behind. I'm honestly surprised it took Michonne that long to leave her ass. What's your impression of that whole scenario?

Cat:  I think Andrea is like a teenager with a crush right now and her feelings toward the Governor are clouding her judgement. But hey, I get it. Since she doesn't know all of his dirty little secrets yet, I can see why she would want to go after Woodbury's most eligible bachelor =) Her separation from Michonne didn't surprise me one bit. I can't wait to see what's going to happen with her in the next episode. I'm wondering if she'll come across Rick's team.

Emmy:  They definitely have the hots for each other.  She proved her independence though when she left after drinks when he was giving her bedroom eyes.  That was a plus in my book.  I'm all for zombie apocalypse nookie though.  She needs lovin' too!  I hope they keep up with Michonne's storyline though.  She's a tough cookie.  I hope there is some interaction soon between the two groups.  After Rick gets his shite together that is! ;)

 Oh my god Cat. The scene where Rick kills the zombie down in the basement looking for Lori! I never thought I would ever say "He ate Lori didn't he?" What in the world followed that? Why the heck did Rick stab the hell out of zombie dude's stomach? I can't fathom right now!

Cat:  That's one of the problems I had with the show. If bloated zombie ate Lori, where are her bones? And her clothes? But in the Talking Dead they made it sound like the zombie dragged her body around the corner or something and ate her there. That would explain the missing bones, I guess. I honestly thought for a second that Rick was going to try and cut her out of that guy's stomach so that he would have something to bury.

Emmy:  All very important questions.  I was just so startled by him stabbing the stomach.  I STILL don't understand what that is all about.  I missed the Talking Dead this week. :(

Daryl is one of my favorite characters besides Rick. It was adorable how he instigated the hunt for formula then swaddled the baby and fed her. What a sweetheart. I wonder if he will have to step up in Rick's absence? If that's what it is.

Cat:  Daryl has never seemed like the type who would want to be a leader, but I think he would if he had to. No way would he just let everything fall apart. But Rick and Daryl make such an awesome team. Rick just needs a good psychiatrist to help him through the grieving process. Wonder if they have one in Woodbury...

 Emmy:  I was grossed out by the zombie pit fight. Clever but barbaric. I thought Andrea was going to find some courage but no... We're left hanging.

Cat:  I liked that scene because it was a step toward Andrea figuring out that Woodbury isn't exactly what it seems. It's not convincing enough for her to run yet, but she will put it all together eventually.

Emmy:  I don't even know where to start with Carol. Why are they not looking for her? I don't understand!  I sure as hell hope they don't drag that out! I do want her to survive though.


Cat:  I don't understand that either. When have they ever considered someone dead without taking some time out to look for them first? Are those the kinds of decisions that are made in Rick's absence? Makes no sense. And when Carol comes back are we supposed to be surprised that she's alive when we never actually saw her die in the first place? I have to say that I do think a Carol zombie would be pretty awesome though. And Michonne does need a new pet now that hers are gone...

Emmy:  LMAO!  Poor Carol.

And the phone ring? What the hell?

Cat:  Apparently we would have to be up to date on the comic series to have an idea of what that's about. I'm very tempted to skim through the graphic novels on my shelf, but I may just let it be a surprise. I haven't decided yet.

Emmy:  Overall I'm left completely puzzled.

Cat:  Yep. I loved the episode, but some things just didn't add up. Maybe we'll have some answers on Sunday.
