Blog Tour: Revelations by Alesha Escobar and Samantha Lafantasie (Giveaway)


Revelations
The Aria Knight Chronicles Book 2
By Alesha Escobar and Samantha Lafantasie
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal

Magic is dangerous, but secrets can kill...

Aria Knight sees a light at the end of the tunnel as she sets out to confront the powerful witch who turned her world upside down…her mother. She must decide if the witch, Clare, truly wants to help her, or drag her into a fate worse than death.


Darkness gathers around Aria and her friends as rioting and assassination plots break out in the streets of Miracle Falls. Her ally, Harry Storm, conceals the truth about his powers while trying to keep it together long enough to help, or else fall into an abyss of insanity. And Jacob Wolfe, the man she yearns for, has little time for romance as he’s stuck trying to prevent an all-out war on preternaturals.


Aria knows that she must do her part to keep the peace, but it's difficult when the conflict within her own family threatens to tear her down. In liberating her only sibling from a magical prison, she finds that she may have hastened the destruction of all sin eaters, including herself.


REVELATIONS is the second book of the Aria Knight Chronicles by USA Today bestselling author Samantha LaFantasie, and bestselling author of The Gray Tower Trilogy, Alesha Escobar.

Sin Eater
 The Aria Knight Chronicles Book 1
Aria Knight has an unusual set of skills: she will hold back the hounds of Hell so you can fly toward the Pearly Gates, and she will wipe your slate clean so that you don't become karma's bitch...for a price.


Sin Eater has to make a living in today's world somehow.

But when she's called in the dead of night to perform her rite for a recluse billionaire, she stumbles upon a murder scene, and the evidence points to her.

In an attempt to clear her name and uncover the true culprit, Aria is forced to team up with a private investigator who's possessed by three spirits, and a handsome wizard who would rather see all Sin Eaters like Aria go extinct.

Aria knows her job is never easy, but now it's become downright deadly.

SIN EATER is the first book of the Aria Knight Chronicles by USA Today bestselling author Samantha LaFantasie and Alesha Escobar, author of the bestselling Gray Tower Trilogy.

I’m a caffeine addict and chocoholic who enjoys reading and writing engaging stories, loveable (and not-so loveable) characters, and expressing my creativity daily. I write fantasy with intriguing characters, action-packed scenes, and always throw in a good dash of humor and romance.

Science Fiction and Fantasy are my favorite genres, but I also adore the classics (Shakespeare, Dante
Alighieri, etc.) and I have a soft spot in my heart for Victorian poetry. You can geek out with me all-day every day over these.

Some of my favorite contemporary fantasy authors are George R.R. Martin, Robert Jordan (rest in
peace), J.K. Rowling, Neil Gaiman, Jim Butcher (Dresden Files made me love Urban Fantasy), and Ilona Andrews among others. I enjoy movies and shows like Sleepy Hollow, Supernatural, Arrow, The Flash, The Avengers…there are too many to name!


I want to read more comics and graphic novels, please shoot a recommendation or two my way (I LOVE the Hellblazer comics, by the way).

Please don’t be a stranger–I want you to kick up your feet, sip your coffee (or tea) and join in
on my weekly rants, discussions, and updates.

Blog Tour: Death of the Kona Man by Catherine Bruns (Giveaway)


Death of the Kona Man
Aloha Lagoon Mysteries Book 9
by Catherine Bruns
Genre: Cozy Mystery
From USA Today bestselling author Catherine Bruns comes the next deadly delicious Carrie Jorgenson adventure in paradise...


Carrie Jorgenson is living the dream in Hawaii. She has a steady job as a waitress at the Loco Moco Café, a hot new love interest in her manager, and the curtain’s about to rise on her role in a local theater production. But when she's asked to deliver food to a guest at the Aloha Lagoon resort—who then drops dead!—her dreams quickly become the stuff of nightmares. 

World renowned food critic Randolph Cremshaw has no shortage of enemies. He's rude, patronizing, and famous for his one-star reviews. After the coffee Carrie delivers is discovered to have been poisoned, she and the café quickly rise to the top of the suspects list. A jealous co-worker, thefts at the restaurant, and a performance that threatens to blow up in Carrie's face only make things worse. With an already full plate, Carrie is also forced into making a decision that may change everything for her. But this all pales in comparison when she comes face to face with Randolph's killer and what might be the final curtain call…of her life.
