Blog Tour & Giveaway for Taker of Lives by Leslie Wolfe


Taker of Lives
by Leslie Wolfe
Genre: Thriller, Suspense
How can you outrun a killer you won’t see coming?


They are the most violent, blood-thirsty, and vicious of criminals. While hunting for them, FBI profilers call these monsters UNSUBS, short for unknown subjects of ongoing investigations. At any given time, in the United States there are more than fifty serial killers at large, preying on vulnerable, unsuspecting victims. 

Until yesterday, no one knew Florida had another serial killer on the loose. Special Agent Tess Winnettcalls this particularly elusive one the Taker of Lives.

The crimes: bewildering

After a well-known model commits suicide, Tess refuses to accept the findings and pushes for an investigation into the reasons behind the beautiful young woman’s decision to end her life. What she finds surpasses her wildest fears.

The evidence: disturbing 

Each new crime scene brings more questions than answers. While secrets are revealed, even those meant to be kept forever in the dark, Tess can draw only one conclusion: she’s not the one in charge; the Taker of Lives controls the game, the players, even the course of the investigation. 

The race: intense

With little information and even less evidence, Tess must connect the dots of a deadly scenario with a large number of potential victims. If she fails, another beautiful, young girl will die tonight, and the blood will be on her hands.

The Taker of Lives might be closer than you think. Who’s watching you sleep tonight?

Beauty is now a corporate commodity, bought and sold on city streets and displayed in elite Museums.
Sixteen-year-old Serenity has spent her entire life in hiding, to keep safe from this decadent world. Overnight, her parents disappear, and Serenity is kidnapped, sold at auction, and thrust into the Aviary—an illustrious Museum where girls are displayed as living art by day and at night, cater to the lascivious whims of men who bid on their exhibits. Serenity has much to learn about this enthralling but competitive world where girls go by names like Raven and Nightingale and will stop at nothing to become top Bird.
The enigmatic and deadly Aviary Director, Luc, soon idolizes Serenity’s purity and aims to turn her into his grandest exhibit of all time—The Swan. In no time, she becomes the most coveted exhibit in the Aviary’s history.
Soon, Serenity learns that Luc holds the key to finding, and freeing, her parents. To save them, she must learn to play the Swan to perfection to win Luc’s heart, earn his trust, and save her parents. She doesn’t count on the fact that she’ll develop feelings for Luc in the process. Now, she’ll have to face an impossible decision: escape The Aviary and lose her only chance at finding her parents; or become Luc’s Swan for good, and lose her identity forever.

Going on the Gulf Breeze by Sarah Louise


Going on the Gulf Breeze (Mistress of the Seven Seas #1)
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

Wow just wow. That is about all I can say after reading this absolutely awesome paranormal RH romance novel. Rowena was born a hybrid that is half human and half mermaid. This is rare and not something that is really accepted in the Mer society so she has been picked on. As a single child her parents dote on her but she also has a really evil aunt, uncles, and a cousin. At the age of 25 each mermaid is made to take part of the calling ceremony for their possible mates. Rowena does not expect this to happen since she is so different so reality comes as quite a shock for both her and me I must say even if I did read the blurb so I had some expectations. What follows is just great as they try to work things out. The BFF is one kick butt female that I would love to have on my side not that Rowena is a slouch herself. If you are a fan of this genre then you really have to go read this book. I guarantee you will not regret it. I loved every single page of it so I give it 5/5 stars.

Jagged Edge by Cara Carnes

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

Okay I do believe that my mind is now blown. This book starts out by throwing you in the deep end with torture, rape, and so much more of the MC Mary that makes it really easy to get a hate on for the bad guys of the story. The problem is that the author is great at keeping their identity a secret no matter what you may think to the contrary. When Mary is rescued by the hunky Dylan and the rest of the Arsenal team things really start to come together. I was loving the tech stuff and the military like precision of the teams and the compound. This is one incredible group of women that I was really impressed with and the guys are no joke either. If you enjoy contemporary romantic suspense novels then you so have to read this book. I totally loved every minute of so I give it 5/5 stars.

Alice failed. Now it's Heather's turn.


Did you ever hear the old saying, Ignorance is Bliss? That's how it was for Heather and her friends. Life at the carnival was normal. Then, one small event, catapulted them into reality–into what they really were…

Freaks. 

Heather and her friends discover just how strange they are when they’re forced to step into our world. They see what life is like in various cultures and unravel a dark history that's been buried deep by their relatives. When they learn the truth, can they forgive and move on? Or will the hate consume them like it did their parents? Will they find the same misfortune as Alice who was hanged for trying to change the world? Or will their bond of friendship be too strong to allow the world around them to corrupt the way they view each other?
