Creatura Cover Reveal

securedownload (1)




Isis can control her dreams. Or she could—until recently. The creature in her nightmares has been haunting her for months. As if being dumped wasn’t bad enough, now she dreads going to sleep. She decides to confront the creature and win back some of her peace; only, she finds that he’s not a monster and he’s not a dream.

A sacrifice for love, a shocking discovery and a jealous ex-boyfriend blur the lines between reality and dreams, making it hard to tell who the real monsters are.

Who would’ve known…that sometimes love is lethal?

Summer Author Promo Blitz: Interview with Janet Lee Carey author of Dragonswood + Giveaway

SummerAPBsmallbutton1.  Can you tell us something about you and your book Dragonswood?
I grew up in the California redwoods near San Francisco. The woods were so magical, I often imagined running into fairies or dragons on my moonlight walks. I think that enchanted forest made me the fantasy writer I am today. I’ve written eight books for children and young adults. I love crafting novels and wouldn’t trade it for the world.
The first idea for Dragonswood (Book Two of the Wilde Island Chronicles) came when I studied the witch trials in medieval Europe. Women accused of witchcraft were forced to name names under torture. How would it feel to give up a friend’s name and see her dragged in, condemned and burned? I love my friends so, of course, the idea appalled me. I instantly knew I had the beginning of a story here – one of friendship and betrayal. The novel tests Tess’s loyalty to her friends, her family, to her first love, and ultimately to herself.

2.  When have you decided that you want to be a writer?

Those walks in the woods helped, but reading books I loved made me what to pull out a pen and start writing my own novels.

3.  Where do you find your inspiration for your novels? (If it’s not a secret) Have you ever found it in your real life?

Sometimes I hear a song and feel like the nugget of a whole novel is hiding there. Music definitely inspires me. I’m also inspired by sounds of birds and animals. There are wild wolf packs in Dragonswood. I listened to recordings of howling wolves a few times while writing the novel to get into the mood.

4.  Do any of your fictional characters resemble you?

They are all their own people with their own tastes, experiences and backgrounds. That said, all of the characters come from somewhere inside me. It’s my job to identify with each of them in some way. The witch hunter in Dragonswood wants to take revenge on the witches who attacked her and put out her eye when she was a girl– it’s one of reasons she goes on her bloody witch hunts. Would I go that far to take revenge? No. Do I understand the desire to take revenge? You bet. Luckily the pen is mightier than the sword so we writers have other ways of getting even.

Do I resemble Tess? She’s much braver than I am. I’m glad to say I wasn’t abused as a child or forced to give up my friends’ names under torture, but, like Tess, I did run off and seek solace in the forest when I was young. Tess likes to climb the trees in Dragonswood. In my teens I climbed the redwoods after dark and sat in the branches during a rainstorm. I called it “riding the storm.” I still try to climb a tree every year on my birthday, which is in January (a perfectly stormy month!).

5.  Which book is the first one that you’ve read?

The first book I remember reading and loving was called Twig, by Elizabeth Orton Jones, a book about a little girl who met a fairy living under a tin can in her back yard.

6.  Do you have a favorite book?

I love so many. I reread my favorites like Ursula K. Le Guin’s Earthsea series, and Juliet Marillier’s Daughter of the Forest. When I love an author’s writing style, her characters and her well-drawn world, I like to get back inside the book to experience the adventure again.

7. If you were about to leave in a trip which book would you take with you?

I just went on a trip and took too many books! I always do. If I had to leave to go somewhere today I’d take The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater.

8. Tell us one thing you’d like to change at people from nowadays.

I’d like to see us taking better care of the earth. Readers can check out the “giving back” page on my websitehttp://www.janetleecarey.com to see the Dragonswood charity link to help save endangered animals.

9. Is there a moment in your life you’d like to live again?
The day I married my husband, Tom.

10. Do you have a message for Romanian readers? Why would you recommend your book?
Hello to Romanian readers. It’s good to meet here on the blog. I’m grateful to book blogs like this one that give us all a chance to connect. I’ve read about Romania’s natural beauty and seen photos of some exquisite castles. I’d love to visit Corvinesti Castle someday.

Why recommend my book? I’ll let some lines from two of my starred reviews speak to that.

~“A fairy tale for those who have given up on believing in them, but still yearn for happily ever after.”

–Kirkus *starred* review

~ “Perfectly crafted combination of history, mythology, and fantasy. . . The political intrigue, mythology of Merlin, and romances that bloom . . . . will have readers racing toward the end and then going back to savor the events more slowly.”
–School Library Journal *starred* review


Author Bio: 
165105Janet Lee Carey is the award-winning author of eight Children’s and YA novels. School Library Journal’s starred review says, “Verdict: This is quite simply fantasy at its best–original, beautiful, amazing, and deeply moving.”  Janet links each new book with a charitable organization empowering readers to make a difference in the world.  She tours in US and abroad presenting at schools, children’s book festivals, and conferences.
~ The book trailer
Dragonswood Description:
I see visions in the fire sometimes, images of the past or what is yet to come. The fire-sight does not lie. But I did not see the witch hunter who would ride in to scour our town of sin, so I did not know to run.
Wilde Island is in an uproar over the recent death of its king. The uneasy pact between dragons, fairies, and humans is fraying and the royal witch hunter begins a vengeful quest to hunt down girls with fire in their hearts and sparks in their soul.
Strong-willed Tess, a blacksmith’s daughter from a tiny hamlet near the mysterious Dragonswood, wants more for herself than a husband and a house to keep. But in times like these wanting more can be dangerous.
 Accused of witchery, Tess and her two friends are forced to flee the violent witch hunter. The journey is bleaker than they ever imagined and they have no choice but to accept when an enigmatic huntsman offers them shelter in the dangerous Dragonswood. Staying with him poses risks of its own: Tess has no idea how to handle the attraction she feels for him—or the elusive call she hears from the heart of the Dragonswood.

Creatura de Nely Cab la editura Leda+Precomanda


Sunt, în acelaşi timp, şi mai mult, dar şi mai puţin decât o fiinţă umană. Sunt, prin cine ştie ce întâmplare miraculoasă, încă în viaţă. Aceasta este povestea primei mele iubiri, povestea vieţii mele trecute şi povestea renaşterii mele…

Isis Martin, o fată de şaptesprezece ani dintr-un orăşel obscur din sudul Texasului, începe să sufere de tulburări de somn, după ce o siluetă neagră înaripată îi tulbură visele, hărţuind-o. Nu trece mult până când Isis se hotărăşte să-şi înfrunte frica, descoperind cu surprindere identitatea celui care se ascunde în spatele vietăţii amenințătoare cu chip uman. Şirul descoperirilor nu se opreşte însă aici…

Când Isis îi cere necunoscutului să demonstreze că nu este o plăsmuire a imaginației ei, acesta acceptă provocarea cu bucurie. Astfel, frumoasa adolescentă ajunge să îi cunoască pe membrii unei familii din spiţa divină a acelora de mult uitați de omenire.

Romantismul, senzualitatea explozivă, pericolul şi întâmplările dincolo de puterea de înţelegere a muritorilor o însoţesc pe Isis pe drumul ei spre o iubire nepermisă, de natură să schimbe legile pământeşti. În mod sigur, această extraordinară călătorie îi va captiva şi încânta pe iubitorii poveştilor de dragoste. Iar povestea se află de-abia la început…

Nely Cab locuieşte în sudul Texasului, împreună cu soțul şi fiul ei. Pe lângă scris, lui Nely îi place să deseneze şi să picteze. Ilustrația cu copacul de pe coperta acestei cărți este una dintre lucrările ei.

Book Blog Tour Need- Interview

Need – Want 2 ~ Contemporary Romance Adult


Inkspell Publishing

Author: Stephanie Lawton
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 17th, 2013
Length: Super Novel
ISBN Print: 978-1-939590-08-4
ISBN ePub: 978-1-939590-07-7

Isaac Laroche is cursed. All he wants to do is hide out and feel sorry for himself. Never mind that he got caught sleeping with his seventeen-year-old piano student, or that he abandoned her when the truth was exposed.

Isaac’s feisty high school sweetheart has different plans. Heather Swann has returned to their hometown of Mobile, Alabama, to regroup after breaking up with her troll of a fiancé. She’s restless and looking for a diversion, but she bites off more than she can chew when she sets her sights on rehabilitating Isaac with her unorthodox sexual, mental, and physical plans.

The two quickly reconnect, but their happiness is threatened by family secrets, old vendettas and the death of a beloved father-figure.

Can Heather handle Isaac’s baggage, or will her own come back to haunt them both? 

About the Author:

After collecting a couple English degrees in the Midwest, Stephanie Lawton suddenly awoke in the deepest reaches of the Deep South. Culture shock inspired her to write about Mobile, Alabama, her adopted city, and all the ways Southern culture, history and attitudes seduce the unsuspecting.

A lover of all things gothic, she can often be spotted photographing old cemeteries, historic buildings and, ironically, the beautiful beaches of the Gulf Coast. She also has a tendency to psychoanalyze people, which comes in handy when creating character profiles.

1. Can you tell us something about you and your book Need ?

NEED is the adult companion novel to WANT, a New Adult title released last year. While the first book was told from 17-year-old Juli’s perspective, NEED picks up about three months after the end of WANT and is told from 28-year-old Isaac’s point of view. Things ended badly for him and he’s now trying to pick up the pieces. Pretty hard to do when the whole town thinks you’re a sexual predator or at least a pathetic womanizer. He’s a character you love to hate, but his redemption is a wild ride.

2. When have you decided that you want to be a writer?

I always loved to read and in college I decided I wanted to do jobs that involved nonfiction writing (professional publications, newspapers, etc.) but I didn’t begin writing fiction until four years ago when we moved from the Midwest United States to the Deep South. Although it’s still the United States, it might as well be a different country! I think writing was a way to work through the epic culture shock.

3. Where do you find your inspiration for your novels? (If it’s not a secret) Have you ever found it in your real life?

Inspiration almost always comes from real life. I love contemporary novels and firmly believe truth is stranger than fiction, so I look for ideas in everyday occurrences. This doesn’t mean my books are autobiographical – they aren’t. I just like to build them around grains of truth to make them more believable. I also watch a lot of educational shows and documentaries. I’m always amazed at how often history repeats itself and how those events can be applied to current situations.

4. Do any of your fictional characters resemble you?

Yes. I am a sex-fiend dominatrix like Heather Swann. (KIDDING!) I think most writers put bits of themselves into their characters, though perhaps not consciously. In this series, I’m probably a combination of Juli, her mom and jovial Dave Gaston. But then I can kind of identify with Isaac’s morose outlook. But I can also appreciate Heather’s wacked-out sense of humor and take-charge attitude. Like I said, there are little pieces of me all throughout the books, but none of the characters are based on me or anyone in particular.

5. Which book is the first one that you’ve read?

Wow, I don’t remember the first book I read, but there was a series of children’s nonfiction books that my parents read to me and that I learned to read from. They featured historical figures and I remember being fascinated by the one about Louis Pasteur and little soldiers inside vaccines that helped us not get sick. I also loved the Little House on the Prairie series by Laura Ingalls Wilder.

6. Do you have a favorite book?

Hands down, my favorite is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. There’s so much wit and hidden humor if you know where to look for it.

7. If you were about to leave in a trip which book would you take with you?

I’d take my Kindle because I have an insane back-log of books to be read. I’ve been on a New Adult kick so I’d probably dive into one of those.

8. Tell us one thing you’d like to change at people from nowadays. [you mean about people? not sure I understand the question]

One thing I love about living in the South is that manners still matter. Chivalry isn’t dead here, and nearly everyone is polite. People still say „please” and „thank you” and hold doors for one another. Men call women „ma’am” and women address men as „sir.” I love the respect those titles infer. Little things like that make the hustle of everyday life so much more bearable.

9. Is there a moment in your life you’d like to live again?

Oh man, there are so many dumb mistakes I’ve made that I’d like to go back and correct! There are also some private moments I’d like to experience again (and again, and again, lol!). Otherwise, there’s nothing I’d like to go back and relive because I believe the only way to live is to keep pushing forward.

10. Do you have a message for Romanian readers? Why would you recommend your book?

I’d recommend NEED simply because it’s sexy and insane! I love reading the reviews because they’re like, „WHAT JUST HAPPENED?!?!” Even if it’s not your cup of tea, it’ll grab you by the shirt collar and shake you until it gets your attention. I promise, you’ll be thinking about this book for a long time after you read the last page. 🙂

1. Can you tell us something about you and your book Reconnaissance?
Reconnaissance is the second book in my Paradise Reclaimed trilogy. You can read the books out of order, though, and it will stand alone without getting too complicated. It’s about the colony that has landed on Paradise 21. In the first book, the threat was so small, they couldn’t see it. So this time around, I wanted to give my readers giant monster aliens for fun!

2. When have you decided that you want to be a writer?
I’ve written all my life, and I’ve always enjoyed reading. I started writing seriously about seven years ago. My first book, The Voices of Ire, took two and a half years to write! Now I can write a book in 2-3 months depending on the length and genre.

3. Where do you find your inspiration for your novels? (If it’s not a secret) Have you ever found it in your real life?
All of my books are a part of me and my experiences. I find inspiration everywhere I go, but especially in movies. When I come home from going to the movies, it’s like my entire brain is on fire.

4. Do any of your fictional characters resemble you?
All of them have part of me in them- even the bad ones! Which part, I’m not telling!

5. Which book is the first one that you’ve read?
My very first book ever? Maybe it was Green Eggs and Ham. I’m not sure. I read a lot of Tad Williams and Christopher Pike growing up as a teen.

6. Do you have a favorite book?
I LOVE Jane Eyre. I really identity with her character and admire her choices in the book.

7. If you were about to leave in a trip which book would you take with you?
I’d take my shiny new Ipad because it has a ton of books on it! If I had to choose one, though, I’d pick Game of Thrones because that’s taking me forever to read, and it would occupy my time for a while. It’s great writing and a great story, but it’s not easy reading.

8. Tell us one thing you’d like to change at people from nowadays.
I’d LOVE for people to be more polite and more positive. You can achieve so much in life just by thinking positively.

9. Is there a moment in your life you’d like to live again?
The day I went to the Star Wars exhibit at the Boston Museum of Science. That day was the bomb.

10. Do you have a message for Romanian readers? Why would you recommend your book?
I hope you enjoy my book! I recommend it to anyone looking for a happy ever after story. If you enjoy Star Wars and Star Trek, then you’ll like this book.

Shadow of Time review

OMG! WOW! AWSOME!…..are NOT enough! This boook was sooo amazing, LOVED IT!

I loved the author writting style, the world, the characters and of course THE STORY! Another thing that I love so so much is that I discovered that the cover is so related with the story. I hope this made you curious!

Here it is the cover:


When I first read the book description on goodreads I was thinking: OMG! I NEEED this BOOK!! The part of its description that intrigued me most is this one: „Night after night, Hannah is plagued by strange nightmares about the past of Navajo Nation and terrifying shadows chasing her. „. I was so so intrigued by this part, and I have to admit that I wasn’t dissapointed.

Thank you so so much Jen for giving me the opportunity to read your amazing Shadow of Time!

The book tells us the story of Hanna. She is 23 years old and she falls in love with a younger guy named Josh. I hope you won’t say that this is odd, because these things really happen so I can say that I am glad that I’ve read a book in which things are like in reality…..hope you all understand what I am saying. Hanna also has a brother, Ben and I was glad that their friendship was a strong one. I loved Hannah character, she is a strong character and I love her and I love her and Josh.

All the characters are so well defined and I loved all of them. Jen created them so so wonderful, she is an expert with words.

I was so happy to learn so many things about native Americans and about Navajo reservation. After I read the book, I have to admit that I had googled Navajo and I spent hours watching pictures of this beautiful place. I was placing Hanna, Josh and all the characters in there and I loved what I imagined.

It is hard for me to write this review without revealing spoilers:(. Try this novel! You won’t regret it! You will love everything about it!

This was my first Paranormal book and I loved it!

5 stars from me!

Book recommendation: Shadow of Time by Jen Minkman

All Hannah needs is a nice and quiet vacation after her first year of teaching French at a high school. She joins her brother Ben for the summer in their mom’s log cabin in Arizona. There, she meets Josh again, Ben’s childhood friend from the Navajo reservation. The little boy from the rez has grown up fast, and Hannah can’t help but feeling more for him than just friendship.

But fate apparently has something else in store for her. And it’s not peace and quiet. Night after night, Hannah is plagued by strange nightmares about the past of Navajo Nation and terrifying shadows chasing her. They seem to come closer – and why is Josh always present in her dreams?

Sometimes, the past has a way of catching up with you.

Interview with Jen Minkman author of Shadow of Time

1. Can you tell us something about you and your book Shadow of Time ?

I’m an author from the Netherlands and Shadow of Time is the first book I wrote. After finding a publisher for it in Holland, I translated the book into English and published it on Amazon myself. It is set in Navajo Nation in Arizona, US, but I have never been there myself yet! I will visit this summer.

2. When have you decided that you want to be a writer?

I don’t think it’s a thing you decide. I have always written stories – I couldn’t stop myself! However, when I finished writing Shadow of Time I ‘decided’ to send the manuscript to publishers and try to get a book deal, so that’s why I thought there might actually be a possibility to make a career out of it.

3. Where do you find your inspiration for your novels? (If it’s not a secret) Have you ever found it in your real life?

Well, because I mostly write romantic books, I get a lot of inspiration from my own love life (I’m happily married), but also movies, other books, the world around me… sometimes all it takes is the tiny seed of an idea that somehow lodges in my brain and starts to grow into something that could be a novel. And I can’t seem to stop it! I don’t even have enough time to write all the books I have in me, and it gets frustrating at times!

4. Do any of your fictional characters resemble you?

Haha 🙂 Guilty as charged. Hannah (the main character) is actually a lot like me in that she is very shy around guys. She also plays the guitar (me too) and writes her own music (me too). The characters in my other books are also kind of like me, but I’ve tried to use different ‘shades of me’ so readers don’t get the feeling I’m always using the same characters!

5. Which book is the first one that you’ve read?

I don’t remember. I could read when I was three, so it’s too long ago!

6. Do you have a favorite book?

Once again, I’ve read books for a verrrry long time, so I don’t have one favourite. Ray Bradbury’s books and Stefan Zweig’s books feature in my top ten, though, and I also like romantic, paranormal & dystopian stories very much!

7. If you were about to leave in a trip which book would you take with you?

I would take my Kindle… (hey, that’s cheating!). I guess I would take Long After Midnight by Ray Bradbury, because it’s full of short stories, so I’ll have more to read in a sense than by just taking one novel!

8. Tell us one thing you’d like to change at people from nowadays.

In Holland? People should be less stressful and not so individualistic, but more interested in each other. In general: people should realise that the Earth is not there to consume freely and that animals should not be abused. I believe people have lost respect for the world that we live in and think we somehow own it, but we don’t.

9. Is there a moment in your life you’d like to live again?

I’d like to re-live my wedding 🙂 I was so nervous at the time I hardly recall some of the things that were said and done!

10. Do you have a message for Romanian readers? Why would you recommend your book?

I have quite a few Romanian followers on Facebook and I can recommend Shadow of Time to them if they like truly romantic books where it’s not just about physical attraction, but also about friendship, destiny, history… a bigger picture, so to speak. I have never visited Romania but I’d love to visit someday! And I would love for my book to be published in Romania; rest assured I’m trying to find an agent to sell my foreign rights this year.

Interview with Stephanie Keyes, author of The Fallen Stars

Thank you so much for hosting me today, Laura! It’s great to be back here at Lucky Books.

1. Can you tell us something about you and your series ?

Sure! My name is Stephanie Keyes. I live in the US and I am addicted to music, chocolate, my kids, and reading, always reading. I’ve been married to my real-life hero for eleven and a half years and he’s my best friend. My series is The Star Child series and it’s a trilogy about a prodigious seventeen-year-old who finds himself pulled into a world of Celtic prophecy and subterfuge. He has no powers or real talent beyond being super-smart. Basically, he has to save the world with his brain.

the-fallen-stars-by-stephanie-keyes-12. When have you decided that you want to be a writer?

I’ve always made up stories as long as I can remember. I don’t think there was a time when I wasn’t writing. I got really serious about it when I started with the first Star Child book. That was the first time I wrote a male character and I really related to that sort of direct approach.

3. Where do you find your inspiration for your novels? (If it’s not a secret) Have you ever found it in your real life?

No, it’s not a secret. Pictures and places have the biggest impact on me. For example, the first book was set in Ireland, where I’ve traveled extensively. Book two takes place mostly in Bar Harbor, Maine, where I spent part of my honeymoon. I have this thing about wanting to write about places I’ve visited.

4. Do any of your fictional characters resemble you?

Kellen! Kellen is probably me, as a guy. He approaches everything very direct and from a logical perspective. However, he’s a hopeless romantic and can be emotional at times. We also share a love of Snickers, Pepsi, and Eighties stuff.

5. Which book is the first one that you’ve read?

I’m probably dating myself, but I honestly can’t remember the first book I read!

6. Do you have a favorite book?

Dozens. I love The Chronicles Of Faerie series by O.R. Melling. She’s a tremendous talent.

7. If you were about to leave in a trip which book would you take with you?

Any of the Harry Potter series. However, I’m really getting into The Caster Chronicles. I’ve read book one and really look froward to the rest.

8. Tell us one thing you’d like to change at people from nowadays.

Negativity. I see this so much on the Internet and Social Media. People criticizing one another, being rude, making fun of one another… I have a simple rule that I try and follow all the time: „Be Nice”. If we were all a little nicer to one another…what could be bad about that?

9. Is there a moment in your life you’d like to live again?

No. I appreciate the past, I enjoy it, cherish it. However, to quote Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, „It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”

10. Do you have a message for Romanian readers? Why would you recommend your book?

Yes! If you read a book and love it, tell a friend and spread the word. I would recommend my books because they are about ordinary people who get to do extraordinary things. What could be better than that?

Interview with Liz Coley, author of Pretty Girl 13

1. Can you tell us something about you and your book Pretty Girl-13 ?

PRETTY GIRL-13 is completely a work of fiction, not based on anyone’s real life. However, Dissociative Identity Disorder, or Multiple Personalities is real for as many as 1/2 to 1% of the population. When I found out I knew someone who had recovered from this situation, I knew I wanted to write a book with a heroine who has to cope with it and learn to accept that it allowed her to survive the unthinkable.

2. When have you decided that you want to be a writer?

I started writing long before I decided to become a writer. I wrote a romance novel for fun in 1984. In the 1990’s, I wrote several short stories. In 2000, I wrote the first scene of the first serious novel I would try to publish. I started submitting it in 2005 and wrote my second serious novel. So I guess you could say I “decided” for real in 2005.

3. Where do you find your inspiration for your novels? (If it’s not a secret) Have you ever found it in your real life?

I find a lot of inspiration when I listen to interviews on our National Public Radio stations. They speak with such interesting people about so many topics and a lot of them get ideas flowing in my head, especially while I am driving. The other way I’ve gotten good ideas is when talking to strangers and finding out their interests and background and lifestyle.

4. Do any of your fictional characters resemble you?

Probably all of my characters have some small things in common with me, but none of them are me. I definitely have used episodes from my childhood to create scenes in my stories.

5. Which book is the first one that you’ve read?

The first book I read by myself was HOP ON POP by Dr. Seuss. It is full of rhymes, easy words, and cute pictures. I loved sounding it out and reading over and over again when I was 4.

6. Do you have a favorite book?

I have two favorite books: DOOMSDAY BOOK by Connie Willis and MEMORY by Lois McMaster Bujold. I believe I have read both of them four times. DOOMSDAY BOOK stands alone. MEMORY is in the middle of my favorite series, the Vorkosigan saga.

7. If you were about to leave in a trip which book would you take with you?

I would take the Oxford English Dictionary because it would take a very long time to read, and I love learning more about our rich language.

8. Tell us one thing you’d like to change at people from nowadays.

I wish people would take more time to pay attention to each other, to talk and share their stories and not be so busy with the internet and television and work.

9. Is there a moment in your life you’d like to live again?

There have been a lot of special moments. One of the most magical was when I was collecting beautiful shells along a beach on a perfectly warm day. My children played in the waves and I walked along the sand finding complete shells of so many different species. I felt so connected to the sun, the sand, the water, and the air, and I felt like my most important job that day was to appreciate and celebrate the beauty of our world.

10. Do you have a message for Romanian readers? Why would you recommend your book?

Hi Romanian readers! I hope we can get a translation of my book into your country. I am one quarter Romanian, so it would be very special to see my story in my grandmother’s native language.

I would recommend my book for people who like to read stories about the strength of the human spirit. Some people like the mystery; others like the suspense; some like learning about dissociative identity disorder; and others love the characters. There are different aspects for different readers.

REACŢIE ÎN LANŢ, vol. 3 din seria CHIMIE PERFECTĂ de Simone Elkeles

acordat de Asociaţia Scriitorilor de Romane de Dragoste din America





Când Luis mi-a zâmbit şi am simţit fiorul atracţiei, am intrat în panică. Nu-mi permit să las garda jos, iar un tip ca Luis e la fel de periculos ca Marco. Îmi dau seama de asta după felul cum surâde. Arată destul de inocent, dar nu mă păcăleşte el pe mine. Poate pe alte fete, dar nu pe mine…

Teoretic, Nikki are dreptate. Dar practic…
În viaţă, ea încearcă să se conducă după trei reguli: băieţii mint ca să-şi atingă scopurile, să nu te încrezi într-un băiat care îţi spune „te iubesc” şi să nu ieşi niciodată cu un tip din cartierul de sud al orăşelului Fairfield. Chiar dacă părinţii ei s-au născut în Mexic, Nikki, în calitate de fiică de doctor, are mai multe în comun cu vecinii săi din nordul oraşului decât cu colegii de şcoală din banda Latino Blood. Dar când îl cunoaşte pe Luis, este tentată să-şi încalce toate principiile.
Sunt conştient că am în mine o anumită doză de nebunie – plăcerea de a înfrunta pericolele… simt adrenalina curgându-mi prin vene – recunoaşte Luis. Pentru el, cea mai mare provocare cu care s-a confruntat vreodată este cum să o convingă pe Nikki să-i dea o şansă unui intrus din cartierul de sud, asta până să devină, la rândul său, ţinta noului lider al bandei Latino Blood.
Vor fi oare sentimentele sale pentru Nikki suficient de puternice pentru a-l opri să intre într-o lume întunecată şi brutală şi a trăi periculos tot restul vieţii?
Acest ultim volum al seriei Chimie perfectă vă dezvăluie răspunsul la întrebare!

Cartea are 384 pagini, formatul 13 x 20 cm, ediţia este cartonată, fără supracopertă şi preţul de listă 39,90 RON. La precomandă beneficiaţi de 25% reducere şi transport gratuit.


CÂND EŞTI VRĂJITOARE…, de Carolyn MacCullough

Emoţionantă şi fermecătoare de la prima până la ultima pagină!
Atât de fascinantă, încât îţi vei dori să continue într-un al doilea volum – pentru că atunci…



Fiica ta va fi una dintre cele mai puternice vrăjitoare pe care le-am avut vreodată în familia noastră. Va fi ca un far călăuzitor pentru noi toţi.Cand-esti-vrajitoare

TAMSIN GREENE face parte dintr-o familie de vrăjitoare cu lungă tradiţie. În ziua în care s-a născut, bunica ei a prezis că va fi cea mai Talentată dintre ele. Dar Talentul lui Tamsin nu s-a confirmat.
Acum, când are şaptesprezece ani, îşi petrece cea mai mare parte din timp la şcoala cu internat din Manhattan, unde măcar poate pretinde că este normală. Însă, în timpul vacanţelor de vară, este obligată să revină acasă şi să lucreze la librăria magică a familiei sale.
Într-o seară, un tânăr foarte atrăgător, profesor la Universitatea New York, intră în librărie şi o confundă pe Tamsin cu sora ei mai mare, extrem de Talentata Rowena. Pentru prima dată în viaţa ei, Tamsin se simte privită cu respect şi admiraţie, şi, înainte de a apuca să se gândească mai bine, acceptă să caute pentru acesta un obiect valoros şi vechi pe care familia lui l-a pierdut cu mai bine de un secol în urmă. Dar căutarea se dovedeşte a fi mult mai ciudată decât părea la prima vedere.

„Cu acest roman al său, Carolyn MacCullough aruncă o vrajă uluitoare. Secrete de familie şi rivalităţi între surori, călătorii în timp şi Talente magice – toate urzite laolaltă pentru a crea o poveste supranaturală, captivantă pentru cititorii tineri. La toate acestea se mai adaugă lupta dintre bine şi rău, precum şi momentul încântător al primului sărut, astfel încât ajungem să ne dorim ca acest roman fermecător să aibă o continuare.” – Megan McCafferty

“Cu un ritm rapid, plin de suspans, cu un punct culminant bine pregătit, acest roman va fi pe gustul adolescenţilor, pasionaţi de poveşti dramatice şi de aventuri magice.” – The Bulletin

“Un roman urban fantasy elegant, pasionant.” – Publishers Weekly

Cartea are 320 pagini, formatul 13×20 cm, ediţia este broşată şi preţul de listă 29,90 RON. La precomandă beneficiaţi de 25% reducere şi transport gratuit.

Carolyn MacCullough s-a născut şi a crescut într-un orăşel liniştit din Connecticut, dar a visat dintotdeauna să călătorească în locuri exotice. În cele din urmă, dorinţa i s-a împlinit – a vizitat Scoţia, Sicilia şi Islanda, înainte de a se stabili la New York.
Dacă ar fi să-şi aleagă un Talent, aşa cum şi personajele sale din Când eşti vrăjitoare… au câte unul, atunci probabil că şi-ar alege Talentul de a zbura. Sau poate Talentul de a citi ce e în minţile oamenilor. Ori poate Talentul de a face ca în copaci să crească bani. Sau cel de a face ca toate legumele să aibă gust de ciocolată cu lapte. Oh, aţi înţeles voi care e ideea!
S-a îndrăgostit de cărţi de la o vârstă fragedă şi şi-a dorit dintotdeauna să devină scriitoare.
Totuşi, au existat perioade în care şi-a dorit să se facă: a) doctor veterinar; b) balerină; c) pilot; d) prinţesă într-un turn. Cu timpul însă, a descoperit că: a) nu-i prea plac orele de zoologie; b) este cam neîndemânatică; c) are o relaţie de dragoste/ură cu altitudinea (în principal, o suportă doar teoretic, când se află cu picioarele pe pământ); d) nu se prea mai caută prinţesele din turnuri.
Între timp, a scris: ode închinate copacului aflat în curtea din faţa casei sale, poeme despre surorile ei, poveşti cu balauri şi, da, cu prinţese închise în turnuri.
Publicarea primului său roman, Falling Through Darkness, în anul 2002, i-a transformat viaţa
într-o poveste magică, după cum mărturiseşte însăşi autoarea. A mai publicat Stealing Henry şi Drawing the Ocean, precum şi seria formată din romanele Once A Witch şi Always A Witch (titlurile celor două volume completându-se unul pe celălalt: Când eşti vrăjitoare… Rămâi veşnic vrăjitoare)..În prezent, scriitoarea locuieşte la New York, unde scrie şi ţine cursuri de scriere creativă.
