Giveaway and Release Dragon's Chase

Dragon's Chase
by Mina Carter
Paranormal Romance

Scroll down for my review and a giveaway!!

He’s found his mate. But can he convince her that he’s her man?
Working for the Paranormal Protection Agency has never been boring, but shadow-dragon Duke didn’t expect to meet his mate in the line of duty. He certainly didn’t expect a warrior every inch his match, or for her to slap him across the ass with her tail and take off across the city.
With Baron on a very personal protection detail, Duke has to fly solo on the pair’s investigation into the warlock who nearly killed Baron’s mate. Just one problem, his mate is working with the warlock. So, dead or alive, he has to bring her in…
She found the one thing she didn’t want. Her mate. Now she needs to get rid of him before he ruins her mission…
Sleeping for centuries has it’s drawbacks, Chase knew that going in. What she didn’t expect was to wake with a Warlock’s spelled collar around her neck and to find her charge, the Queen’s daughter, in a cage. Vowing to free them both will take skill and strength and she doesn’t need the distraction of a hot as hell male dragon trying to make his claim on her. Even though her heart aches to complete their joining, she can’t. Not yet.
The mission, or her heart. Can she have both? Or will she need one to complete the other?

Meet Mina:

Mina was born and raised in the East Farthing of Middle Earth (otherwise known as the Midlands, England) and spend her childhood learning all the sorts of things generally required of a professional adventurer. Able to ride, box, shoot, make and read maps, make chainmail and use a broadsword (with varying degrees of efficiency) she was disgusted to find that adventuring is not considered a suitable occupation these days.
So, instead of slaying dragons and hunting vampires and the like, Mina spends her days writing about hot shifters, government conspiracies and vampire lords with more than their fair share of RAWR. Turns out wanna-be adventurers have quite the turn of imagination after all…
(But she keeps that sword sharp, just in case the writing career is just a dream and she really *is* an adventurer.)
The boring part: A full time author and cover artist, Mina can usually be found hunched over a keyboard or graphics tablet, frantically trying to get the images and words in her head out and onto the screen before they drive her mad. She’s addicted to coffee and would like to be addicted to chocolate, but unfortunately chocolate dislikes her.

Dragon’s Chase Excerpt © 2014 Mina Carter

Some dragons had all the luck.
Tucking a strand of hair the wind had blown across his face behind one ear, Duke watched his brother helping a diminutive female—his new mate, Honor Croft—into a waiting cab.
Testament to the heavy shit that had just gone down, events that included a horde of Red Caps and a crazed warlock trying to kill the girl the PPA had been paid to protect, heavily armed guards surrounded the vehicle, watching everything around them closely. As a group, they breathed a sigh of relief when Baron slid into the vehicle next to his mate and shut the door. As experienced as all the guards were, they were still a little wary of the big dragon. They were around both brothers.
Duke paid them no mind, transferring his attention back to the new couple, just visible through the windows of the cab. His brother was one lucky bastard. Not only had he saved the day, but he’d gotten the girl as well.
Finding their soul mates had been on both brothers’ minds since they understood the difference between little girl and little boy dragons and now Baron had found his. He could hold her in his arms, keep her safe, and Duke was as jealous as all hell.
Of course, Baron would probably have appreciated not dying first. Duke sure as fuck would have preferred not to watch his brother breathe his last breath, broken body bleeding out onto the concrete beneath his feet. But true love conquered all…. That’s what they said, and the gamble Duke had taken when he’d made Honor eat the rarest ‘diamond’ in existence; a Dragon’s Tear.
It had worked, the lucky son of a bitch had been healed and now Baron and Honor were on their way to a safe-house where Honor could be protected. And practice making little baby shadow-dragons if the twinkle in Baron’s eye was anything to go by. Which left Duke to track down the murderous bastard who had tried to kill his brother’s mate, and find the she-dragon who had taunted and teased him until he didn’t know up from down.
A she-dragon. His mate. He’d been so surprised that he’d almost fallen out of the sky. Then she’d slapped him across the ass with her tail and run away….
Duke’s lips compressed into a thin line. Oh, she’d pay for that. He just had to find her first.
Crouching, he gathered the energy within himself, holding it deep inside as a rolling mass of chaos. It built, simmering like inferno-heated champagne as the bubbles tried to escape at high velocity. His scales tried to push through his skin, and his bones ached with the pressure of holding the change back. With a roar he leapt into the air and let it all go. His dragon-form exploded out from his body like some nightmare-inducing jack in the box.
The roar deepened as his throat changed, and he snapped his wings out to their full spread. A soft click sounded deep in his throat a second before a gout of flame lit the night sky. Beating his wings, he took no more than a few seconds to reach the top of the Croft building. He circled it, using the tiniest of air currents to glide in a graceful loop.
Guards scurried over the roof, looking like ants to his non-human vision. Heat rose from them, bringing the scent of blood and soft flesh to his nostrils. Instinctively his mouth watered. So soft and crunchy…most humanoids made great snacks.
As if sensing his thoughts, the guard on the corner turned and looked at him, his eyes flashing amber in warning as an earthy scent hit Duke’s nostrils. Werewolf then. Yeah, not so good if the snack was more than capable of clawing its way out of your belly through your ribcage. Talk about aggressive indigestion.
Movement at the corner of his eye got his attention. Turning his head, Duke spotted Iliona—his boss— motioning him to land. He lifted his wing and banked sharply in mid-air, scattering the guards below. Heavy wing-beats kept him hovering in the air just above the human woman, her arms folded and hair whipping about her face as she waited for him to land.
The instant he touched down with a claw, he called the change and folded his dragon-form neatly back within the man. A roll of his neck reset the shirt across his shoulders, his clothes thankfully reappearing when he made the change back to human, and he took the last few steps to stand in front the Paranormal Protection Agency’s head honcho.

As always, she wore a smart business suit. No skirt this time, but pants, and her jacket hung open. Two things caught Duke’s attention. The ornate pendant at her throat pulsed with power, pulling at the dragon part of him. Pretty and powerful, such a trinket was everything the creature loved and his fingers itched with the need to reach out and touch it. He resisted, curled them into fists at his side as he flicked a glance down at the Glock in the holster playing peekaboo through the open edges of her jacket. The fact that she packed heat to match the sheathed knife the other side made him blink. It was serious when the boss came out on site fully armed...

Undercover Kitty Reveal

Title: Undercover Kitty

Author: Edie Hart

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Tour Organizer: N K Author Services

Blurb: Cory West is determined to find out who killed her sister, even if that means dressing as a sexy kitty and working at a strip club. Will the sexy bartender distract her from finding the killer before it’s too late?



The bar would be closing soon, not soon enough for Cory. She loved her boots, but her feet were killing her. She worried her feet would go on strike if she had to wear the pinching things much longer. She hadn’t taken a break all night and the small of her back was twinging.
After doing a quick check of her tables, she headed for the back door and a breath of fresh air. She glanced over at the DJ booth. Music was pounding throughout the club, but the DJ was nowhere to be found. That was strange. Where could he be? Cory passed the booth and made her way to the door.
After pausing by the ladies room while a customer pushed open the door and entered, Cory noticed the DJ making his way to the back. He made a beeline for the women’s dressing room, glanced around and darted inside. Curiosity told her to move her ass. There was a murderer loose and it could be him.
She waited a few seconds and then started to make her way to where he’d disappeared. Before she could get to the doorway, the sexy bartender came around the corner from the direction of the bar. He glanced at the dressing room and then at her. There went her chance to figure out what the DJ was up to. Cory stopped where she was. The bartender made his way over to her. He was tall in the dark hallway. She backed up a few steps until she felt the wall behind her.
The sexy man continued to invade her space and leaned one arm against the wall next to her head.
“Hey,” he said. In the darkness, she couldn’t see what color his eyes were.

She glanced over toward the dressing room and he leaned in closer. She caught the light scent of outdoors and mint and her stomach flip flopped.
“Um, hey.”
“You must be Cory,” he said close to her ear, his warm breath blew her pink wig hair slightly.
“Uh, yeah. And you are?” She tried to keep an eye on the dressing room door to see who was in there with the DJ.
“Jason.” He leaned in closer until they were almost chest to chest.
Her heart pounded hard and her legs began to quiver. There shall be no hooking up, Cory. Must find killer. Then maybe a hook up.
She licked her lips and tried to focus.
From the doorway came the sound of approaching footsteps. She tried to move around Jason to see who was coming, but he leaned in and pressed his lips against hers.
The moment their mouths touched, Cory was lost. Flames pooled in the bottom of her stomach and lower.

About The Author:

Edie Hart was born in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago, where she now resides with her husband, two children, dog, and three cats. After spending her childhood making up stories in her head, she finally decided to put them on paper. What came of it was her first novella, One Bad Day. Edie is a die-hard romantic and believes that everyone deserves to be loved unconditionally—both in print and real life.

Edie also admits that "Edie Hart" is a pen name and an alter ego to an otherwise boring wife and mother. Edie is 20 pounds lighter, loves to skydive, travels to foreign places, and is a total sex kitten as compared to the uninteresting other half who is none of those things.

In reality the counterpart of Edie is a lackluster 40-something-year-old, whose main goal is to keep Bacon Boy from torturing Gator Girl. Last week he left ravioli handprints on the back of her white T-shirt. The week before that he told her she was adopted and she believed him.

Releasing May 27, 2014

Two years ago Journey Cummings spent two of the best weeks of her life with the man of her dreams, until he left her without even a goodbye. 

Journey has spent the last two years trying to find the man that left her high and dry after two blissful weeks together, but he seemed to have dropped off the face of the earth.  With no hope in finding the father of her son she tried to just move on, until a chance encounter changes everything.

Dylan Carmichael knew he messed up when he lied and walked away from Journey two years ago, but it was over and there was nothing he could do about it now.  That is until she walked into his brother's reception on the arm of another and drops the biggest bombshell, he has a son.

Can Dylan prove to Journey that he won't walk away again and can she trust him with her heart and their son?  When tragedy strikes can Dylan be man enough to keep their new little family together before it falls apart?

Dylan followed her to her little sedan she drove.  She tossed the bag in the front and went to the back passenger side door. Turning to face him she held Joey out to him.  “Can you give your daddy a kiss bye-bye?”

He scooped up his boy in his arms and took the hat off his head, kissing his thick, dark hair.  It melted his heart when Joey wrapped his arms around his neck and slobbered on his cheek.  “Bye, little man. You be a good boy for your momma, okay?”

His boy was smart as soon as he heard the word momma he turned to Journey, pointed, said “momma” and then clapped his hands. 

“Why don’t you buckle him in?  Trust me you’ll want to practice. They can be tricky to maneuver.” She pulled the back door open for him and backed away while he carefully placed Joey in his seat.  He could tell Joey was tired by the way he started rubbing his eyes when Dylan put his arms through the straps.  After that he was lost, he couldn’t figure it out. He could take apart and put back together any type of M16, but strapping his child into his car seat seemed to require a Ph.D. He heard the other door open and soon Journey was on the other side. 

The light floral scent she was wearing, invaded his senses. His dick twitched in his pants and he felt like a big old asshole.  She had-had that effect on him two years ago and it seemed she still did.  He gave her a sheepish look. “It appears I’m not intelligent enough to figure this out.”

“Here let me show you.” Her hands brushed up against his and he heard her quick intake of breath.  He knew she felt the shock that passed through him too.  Watching her strap their boy in was hard to do because he was willing the erection that was starting-to stop.  When he heard the last click he looked up at her. Their faces were close together that he could see the light dusting of freckles across her nose and cheeks. If he leaned in just a couple of inches their lips would be touching. ‘Fuck it’ he thought but, as soon as he started to lean in Joey started crying. 

Dylan could admit that as soon as his little boy started to cry he panicked.  He looked up at Journey who reached out rubbing Joey’s tears away from his cheeks.

“It’s okay Angel.  Momma’s gonna take you home and put you to bed, okay?” Her voice was soft and soothing. Her southern drawl was thick as she murmured to their boy. She was a wonderful mother, granted he only witnessed her with Joey today but he could tell how much she loved that boy. 
“I better get him home.” Journey whispered when he noticed Joey nodding off.

“Yeah sure.” He leaned down and kissed Joey’s forehead, got out and shut the door as quietly as possible. Journey came around to the driver’s side door and looked up at him.  Her uncertainty was evident all over her face.  “I’ll meet you here at six on Friday.”

“That sounds good.  Um-well it was good seeing you again.” She pulled her door open but Dylan stopped her before she got in.  He wasn’t sure why he did, but he couldn’t let her leave yet.  She looked up at him, “what, Dylan?”

“Listen, Journey I’ve done nothing but fuck things up and say the wrong things since I saw you last.  For what it’s worth I’m sorry and I plan on making it up to you both.”  He leaned down and brushed his lips against hers. He backed away smiling and looked down at his sleeping son in the backseat.  “See you, Friday.”

Chapter One

Sirens blared. One after another the police cruisers and fire department vehicles sped by in a rush. A honk sounded from behind James Brock’s SUV. He glanced over his shoulder.
“This moron is trying to cause an accident,” Tony Ramirez, one of the Federal Paranormal Unit team members, yelled at the rearview mirror.
Brock glanced over his shoulder. A black Sedan tailed close behind them. Too close.
Ramirez gripped the wheel so hard his tanned knuckles turned white. “I’m already doing eighty.”
“Tony, let them by.”
There was something big going on. He curled his hands into fists in his lap. He knew what it was. They all knew.
“Where do you think they’re all going, Brock?” The concern in Jane Donovan’s voice momentarily choked him. Her soft lilt reminded him of his mother’s voice. At first appearance, you’d think Donovan was a weak woman, but make her angry, and you’d have hell to pay.
Tension turned palpable with its own heartbeat in the fast-moving SUV.
“I can take a wild guess.”
They made a sharp corner on a bend into a dirt road. The SUV skidded on its wheels for a second. Everyone held on while they bounced in their seats.
“Jesus H. Christ, Ramirez! Can you not to get us killed before we get there,” Donovan growled.
“Sorry, cariño, but there is no time to be worried about your delightful ass bouncing on the seat when we have to find a missing kid.”
“I told you to stop calling me darling!”
“Ramirez…” Brock sighed.

COVER REVEAL ♥ Bare Essentials, by M.L. Stephens

He was the kind of trouble she steered clear of. But damn, trouble never looked so good. He was sin and she wanted to taste.
She was an inferno he couldn't douse, a tornado he couldn't outrun.
"You didn't let me finish." Sensual assertiveness steamed from his pores, encapsulating her in a masculine sauna of intense promise as his low growl pulsed in her ear. "I wasn't expecting such an incredible woman to want such an imperfect man."
He was the kind of trouble she steered clear of. But damn, trouble never looked so good. He was sin and she wanted to taste.
He commanded her like she was his guitar, his instrument of passion. And he knew precisely when and how to pluck each string and strum each chord to make her body sing along in perfect harmony.
