Book Tour + #Giveaway - The Exiled Otherkin - by D. Lieber @AuthorDLieber - Fantasy Romance Adventure Steampunk


The Exiled Otherkin
by D. Lieber
Genre: Fantasy Romance Adventure Steampunk

Exiled from Faerie when her father dies, half-Fae Ember is surprised by how much the human realm has changed since she was there last. She takes a dangerous job on a merchant airship, hoping a life on the move will keep her well-hidden. Sure, she misses her brother, but years of apathy have numbed her emotions.

When the optimistic and naïve Reilley follows her, it’s annoying to say the least. But when she starts feeling responsible for him, long-stifled emotions crack the ice around her heart.
Faeries, pirates, and traveling players meet in this steampunk fantasy adventure as Ember tries to cope with feelings long forgotten and a past that pursues her while balancing new friends and lovers.






D. writes stories she wants to read. Her love of the worlds of fiction led her to earn a Bachelor’s in English from Wright State University.

When she isn’t reading or writing, she’s probably hiking, crafting, watching anime, Korean television, Bollywood, or old movies. She may also be getting her geek on while planning her next steampunk cosplay with friends.

She lives in Wisconsin with her husband (John), retired guide dog (Samwise), and cat (Yin).

Saving Grace Banner

Author: Aoife Marie Sheridan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Dates: 22nd of February 
Hosted by: Ultimate Fantasy Book Tours


  Radish Saving Grace

Blurb:

Grace knows that the only way she can survive life is to bury her past.

But nothing stays buried forever...

It’s been two years since she lost so much. Two years since she started a new life, in a new college, with a new group of friends. Two years, and now her troubles are rushing back.

When Derek walks into Grace’s life, he makes her feel things she’d hoped never to feel again. The box she hid all her secrets in is opening, and Grace might not be able to keep it shut this time.

As each of her traumas resurfaces, Grace isn’t sure having Derek at her side is enough to save her. And if he’s not, Grace isn’t sure she’ll come out the other side fully intact.

If you like “The Problem with Forever” by Jennifer L Armentrout or “Hopeless” by Colleen Hoover, then Saving Grace will feed your addiction for a romance with real-life struggles.

The second book in the Lustful Possession series DARK FOURSOME is out Now!

The Lustful Possession Series is back and better than ever, with the re-release of the first two books in this haunting collection of short erotic paranormal stories, Meet Me in the Dark and Dark Foursome.

This series is a bit different in that it incorporates several different genres, couplings and characters throughout, from contemporary to historical time-travel and back again, along with m/f and m/m relationships in the same series — breaking all the romance rules. 😉 Well a good many of 'em anyway.

There are seven shorts in all. We hope you'll join us for the ride... one more time


Meet Me in the Dark

There’s nothing in the dark that isn’t there in the light…

Crishtin Davenport thought she was attending a simple Halloween event—a good scare to get the blood pumping. But instead she finds her pulse racing over one of the event’s organizers.

Josh Hewes loves nothing more than investigating paranormal activity, but after meeting Crishtin, the only thing he wants to explore is her.

However, getting to know one another takes an unexpected turn when some randy spirits get in on the act. Crish and Josh are inexplicably drawn into a heady web of desire and want nothing more than to possess each other. But they’re not the only ones.

Be careful what you invite in to play…

This series is a re-release
Warning: This collection of short stories contains m/f and m/m couplings and cliffhangers. Installments must be read in order.


Enjoy an Excerpt:


"I can’t believe you talked me into this, Lana.” Crishtin Davenport, stared up at the spooky façade of the enormous old mansion while her friend Lana parallel parked her late-model VW Bug out front. 

“I knew after I attended the first one of these things it’d be right up your alley,” Lana said, pulling the e-brake. “You’re gonna love this.” 

As they exited the vehicle then walked side-by-side toward the darkened house, thunder rolled in the distance. 

“Sounds like the weather is only going to add to the atmosphere,” Lana said. 

“I haven’t done anything like this since high school,” Crish admitted, tucking her arm through Lana’s. “So how does this work? What do they do, simply sit and wait for some sort of paranormal activity to happen?” 

“The guys kind of walk from room-to-room and invite whatever supernatural entities might be about to make contact.” 

Crish reached up and touched the crucifix on the silver chain around her neck. There was no way she’d even think of going to something like this without it. 

Armed with their flashlights at the ready, they entered the dark abandoned house and met up with another group of thrill-seekers and ghost hunters. 

The moment Crishtin stepped over the threshold, a low vibrating hum started in the soles of her feet and began to work its way up her body. Her spine tingled with anticipation. 

The group assembled listened intently to the lone man addressing them at the bottom of the stairs. 

“Any doubters?” he asked. 

The crowd responded with an assortment of comments. 

“I want you to be open to the possibilities of what may be here in this house, okay, but I also need you to be careful. You don’t want to invite something evil in to play, so protect yourselves. 

“Now what we usually do when we are running a true paranormal investigation is wander the rooms in small groups, usually in pairs. The others wait outside so that we are the only ones in the house. That way, if there are any other sounds, we know right away that it isn’t a living, breathing person that we can hear. 

“But for tonight, since there are so many of us, we may need to go in fours. The probability that we’ll hear each other is quite high, but we can still have a good experience, since the current owner swears the activity in this dwelling is rampant.” 

Crishtin leaned over and whispered in her friend’s ear. “I didn’t think you believed in any of this stuff, Lana?” 

“I don’t. But I believe in him.” With a smile in her voice, Lana pointed the beam of her flashlight straight at the lone speaker. 

He squinted then shaded his eyes. Lana lowered the torch, then sent him a little wave. 

“Ahhh, it all makes sense now,” Crish said. 

“I knew you’d understand.” She giggled. “That’s my Arnie.” 

“Shhht!” Someone from the crowd shushed them. 

Sufficiently chastised, Crishtin mashed her lips together. 

Lana squeezed her hand. “These people are quite serious about the way they do this.” 

“Is there no electricity in this place?” Crish whispered. 

“No, I don’t think so. I suppose it was shut off when the last residents vacated. The current owner doesn’t even live here because of all the strange things that go on.” 

“Did anyone else hear that?” Arnie asked, in hushed tones. Crish tried not to roll her eyes. He was really playing it up. 

The room fell silent. After a few moments passed, several of the onlookers agreed they’d also detected something. 

“For cryin’ out loud,” Crish groaned. Arnie seemed to be laying it on a bit thick. As a believer, she knew he didn’t have to. If spirits wished to come forward and make themselves known, they would. In their own time, in their own way. There was no need to deceive people. It only fed into the conspiracy theories and fraud that abounded in the field and made non-believers scoff at the possibilities. 

“Stop,” Lana chuckled. “Arnie is the founder of the Phenomena Investigators League of America,” Lana explained, her voice low. 

“P I L A,” Crish spelled out. “It’s a pile-a somethin’,” she mumbled under her breath. 

“What?” Lana leaned toward her. 

“Arnie—he’s cute.” Crish rushed to cover up the sarcasm. “In a weird ghost hunter kind of way.” 

“He sure is,” Lana said. 

Arnie slanted his flashlight and aimed it right at Lana and Crishtin. 

“All right, let’s split up. Lana, you come with my group, and we’ll let the novice go with Josh. She’s a bit too talkative to accompany my lot.” 

Blinded by the beam of light, Crishtin snatched at Lana’s arm, but to no avail. “Don’t leave me with these...” 

“Mmm-umph.” 

Crishtin turned and squinted up at the guy to her left as everyone else moved away. “Sooo... you must be Josh.” 

“And you’re the mouthy virgin,” he said, deadpan. 

“Well, I’m mouthy.” She grinned and offered her hand in greeting. “Good to meet you, Josh.” 

He paused, then chuckled, taking her hand. “You, too. Sorry you got stuck with me. All the ladies like to go with Arnie. He’s the rock star at this, and I’m still learning.” 

“So you’re a bit of a virgin too, eh?” 

Josh chortled. “And here I thought this was going to be an uneventful evening.”

Castle Cairnnon—Perhaps not the gate, but the epicenter of hell.

Neve Brádach had always wanted to work with an internationally renowned team of paranormal investigators, so when a U.S. team decides to explore a famous site in her own backyard, Cairnnon Castle, she does everything she can to secure a place on the team.


One of the most haunted places on earth, Cairnnon Castle is home to one of the most malevolent entities ever documented. Bás a thagann, loosely translated it means simply—death comes. When the enthusiastic American troop descends on Neve’s Irish hills, the last thing they expect to do is rile up the evil within.

But Bás takes an immediate interest in one of the American investigators and holds him prisoner within the castle, sapping his strength and will. As Neve and the others rush to find a solution, before another good man loses his soul to the malicious elemental, she discovers the secret that might send Bás a thagann to its own permanent hell.

As Neve verbalizes the words that should free Cairnnon from its most evil resident, the castle crumbles around her, leaving her broken, dying and trapped in the belly of the beast.

Neve is left defenseless to fight it and is forced to suffer a life that is not her own.

Oddly enough, something very valuable to Poppy and Alex is missing from his store too. Is the theft connected to the murder? 

As they hunt for Samuel's killer, carefully eliminating suspect after suspect, they must juggle cake tastings and reception planning, as all the while someone's watching their favorite amateur sleuth. Will Poppy and Alex solve the case and reach the altar, or will the killer make their ever after far less than happy?
