Allusive Aftershock Release Day

Title: Allusive Aftershock

By: Susan Griscom

Genre: Young Adult Romance

Published by Amber Glow Books

Release date: December 23, 2012




What happens when a major earthquake changes life as you know it and the boy you thought you hated ends up saving you? Three times!

Courtland Reese is the guy everyone hates and makes fun of because … well, he is weird. He communicates with animals. Strange or interesting, seventeen-year-old Adela Castielle can’t quite figure out, but when he saves her from being trampled by her own horse, she begins to understand him a little better and wants to learn more about him.

But, Max--her best friend/dream guy/someday-to-be-her-husband-only-he-doesn’t-know-it-yet--hates Courtland with a passion. Adela wants to know why, except neither boy is talking.

When Max leaves her stranded in his parents' wine cave with his worst enemy, Courtland, after what the experts are calling a “megathrust” earthquake, Adela starts to question her loyalty to Max as steamy kisses in a dark damp cellar only fuel her emotions with more conflict.

But does she really have time to worry about that when fire, destruction and mayhem surround her?


If you want to state this you can, but not necessary: Allusive Aftershock is a story about a major earthquake and contains situations involving death and destruction. It is highly emotional and there is some mild sexual content because, it is after all, a romance. J


A note from Susan:

My friends and family know me as Susan Griscom, but I write the Whisper Cape series under the name of Regan Walsh. Visit my blog: http://swblog.susangriscom.com

I daydream often and sometimes my daydreams interrupt my daydreams. So I write to remember them. If I didn't write, I think my mind would explode from an overload of fantasy and weirdness. To the annoyance of my friends and family, my characters sometimes become a part of my world. During my childhood, I would frequently get in trouble in school for daydreaming. Eventually, my vivid imagination paid off and I had the privilege of writing and co-directing my sixth-grade class play—a dreadful disaster, though not from my writing, of course, I must blame it on the acting.

I enjoy writing about characters living in small quaint towns and tend to lean toward the unusual and spooky.

My paranormal playing field delves into a different milieu, abandoning vampires and werewolves, but not discounting them. Someday I might like to write a novel about vamps and those furry creatures. But for now I like the bizarre mixed with romance. A strong hero or heroine confronted with extraordinary forces of nature, powers and capabilities gets my blood running hot.

Book Release by Leslie Paige Dover

Author Bio:  I am an avid reader that loves my collection of books. Writing has always been a passion of mine and now I am glad I get to share my passion with the world. I live in North Carolina with my husband and two beautiful girls.  I absolutely love being a southern girl. I spent several years in college starting out with a major in Psychology and then switching to dental. I worked in the dental field for eight years and then decided to stay home with my two beautiful girls. I spent the beginning of my reading years reading suspense thrillers, but now I can't get away from the paranormal/fantasy books. I knew ever since then that if I wrote anything it would be in a paranormal aspect. Now that I have started on my passion and began writing, you will not see me go anywhere without a notebook and pen.

Synopsis:  He leans down, lips parted, and then our lips connect……….We didn’t know that this one kiss has FOREVER changed the Land of the Fae.

            According to the Prophecy proclaimed many years ago, Princess Calista of the Summer Court is destined to change the Land of the Fae from the evil determined to destroy it.  Her powers are phenomenal, and she secretly trains for battle with her handsome warrior friend, Merrick, who unbeknownst to her protects her heart as well, in hopes of keeping it for himself.  At least, until the seductive Prince Ryder attends the Guardian Ceremony and instantly sends a fire burning through her veins and a connection so deep they both discover a love above anything imaginable.

            No one knows how Calista is destined to change the kingdoms, but there is one that does.  He not only craves Calista’s power, but her body as well, and his goal is to steal her power, make her his Dark Queen, and take over the Land of the Fae. 

            Will the evil succeed in claiming Calista’s soul?  Or will the two men that fight for her heart save her from despair, and help her fulfill her destiny to become what she was meant to be. 



Excerpt:  “Ryder, I don’t know how or why it is happening so fast, but my heart does feel like it belongs to you, and when I saw you tonight, I felt it.  The connection is there, and I see it now, but what if it isn’t real?”  I pull away from him to walk closer to the crystal blue water of the lake. 

He looks at me bewildered.  “Why wouldn’t it be real?  It feels real to me,” he says while making his way towards me.  He’s coming closer and all I want to do is run into his arms and feel his body surround mine.  That is what my body is telling me, but how do I find out if that’s what my heart truly feels. 

I shrug and say flatly, “I just think we might feel this way because of the Prophecy.”  He wraps me in his arms again and tilts my chin up so my eyes settle on his.  His eyes look worried and the frown marring his face clearly shows the tension in the lines around his features. 

Ryder shakes his head and lets out an exasperated breath, “Why are you trying to fight this, Calista?  Whatever we feel is between me and you.  No Prophecy or any amount of magic is going to change the way I feel in my heart.”  He cups my face with both hands and brings his face closer to mine to where our foreheads are tenderly touching.  He breathes lightly against my face and whispers softly, “My heart tells me this is real, and if we can’t believe in our own hearts, then what can we believe in?”

Cover Reveal for Star Cursed by Ashley Lavering


Book Description:

Chel finished tying me to the chair and stood. “This is crazy.”

I ignored her comment. “Go down to the basement.”

“Now, I know you’ve lost it.” She folded her arms. “How will this prove that your giant dog is the hot guy that got in your van?”

“I’ll explain later. Just trust me.”

One of her eyebrows rose.

“Please?” I waited for her to nod. “Once you’re down there, I want you to whisper something. Then come back up.”

“Whatever.” With an eye roll, she left the room.

I focused on her feet thumping against the wood stairs and heard the change when they slapped across the tiled kitchen floor. Once the basement door closed, I strained to hear her, but all I caught was a beetle scuttling across the kitchen. Nerves tangled in my gut. Had I missed it?

“If this doesn’t work, I’m calling the loony bin, Tay.” Chel’s voice rang so loud that I jerked back, toppling the chair. I hit the floor with a thud.

Beast’s airy chortle resonated from outside the window.

“Shut up. This isn’t funny,” I told him.

Chel walked through the door. “Geeze, what happened?” She hurried to me. “Are you okay?” She righted my chair with a grunt.

“That depends.”

“On?” She cocked an eyebrow at me.  

 “On whether or not you’re going to untie me.”

“Oh my gosh. I’m so sorry.” She scrambled to untie the knots.

My hands slipped free and I rubbed my bruised arm. “What kind of friend are you?”

“What?” She startled.

I shook my head at her. “I can’t believe you’d commit me.”

“Wait, you heard that?” Her eyes widened.

I repeated it word for word.

“Whoa, that’s, like, creepy and awesome at the same time. But I still don’t understand how this proves your dog is a werewolf.”

The dreaded moment had arrived and nerves attacked my stomach. “Because, Chel—he bit me.”


Seventeen-year-old Tayla will never forget Beast’s fiery-venom spreading through her body like an infection. Now, with her best friend Chel’s help, she must find a human true love before the last petal falls from her enchanted rose or the full moon will transform her into a wolf forever.

But Tayla never expected that her biggest obstacle would come from inside—a wolf presence threatening to take her very soul. At every turn, the she-wolf exploits Tayla’s weaknesses and gains enough control to sabotage her dates. Tayla struggles to control her unruly wolf and her forbidden attraction to Beast. But can she resist his southern charm, the she-wolf’s attraction to his alluring scent, and still fall in love with a human?

Tangled in a web of wills, Tayla must risk everything to break the Curse of the Beast. With failure and possible death looming overhead, Tayla will do anything to find true love. But will one moon cycle be long enough to conquer her wolf and remain human? Or will she become a permanent member of Beast’s pack? Find out in the second installment in the Curse of the Beast series.
