Release Day Blitz: From Russia with Fangs (From Russia... #2) by Jacey Conrad & Gia Corona (Promo + Giveaway)





New Release from Molly Harper, writing as Jacey Conrad​, and Gia Corona: From Russia With fangs! The companion novel to the best selling From Russia with Claws, this time we hear sister irina’s story. 

Synopsis:

 Between her family’s drunken antics and vicious verbal attacks from her so­called friends, Irina Sudenko Volkov is having the worst night ever. And that’s before she’s widowed. Volatile, cheating, no­good Sergei’s death­by­assassin unleashes chaos in the werewolf criminal underground. Irina's panicked Papa assigns Beta wolf Viktor Zhukovsky to Irina’s security detail until her husband’s killer is found. As Irina's world crumbles around her, the perfect princess mask falls away and Viktor meets the sharp, passionate woman underneath. Their initial chemistry gives way to a deeper attraction when Irina begins to see the decency underneath Viktor’s gruff, tattooed exterior, despite his insistence that it doesn't exist. Their tendency to find themselves semi­nude and in enclosed spaces is a source of amusement to her sister, Galina, but each of them knows of the deadly consequences if their relationship is brought to light. Things get even more complicated when Papa Sudenko begins to match­make Irina and Andrey Lupesco, who also happens to be in a secret relationship with Galina. Family dinners are awkward. 
With danger closing in on all sides, Irina has to find her claws and learn to howl.
 In the much­anticipated sequel to From Russia with Claws, readers get a new perspective of the lusty exploits of the untameable Sudenko family.
 Gia Corona and Jacey Conrad craft a delightful tale of the anything­-but­-average human Irina and the libidinous lycanthropes in her life.

Guest Post: Terrible Ideas for First Dates (From Russia with Fangs by Jacey Conrad & Gia Corona)


Terrible Ideas for First Dates:


Poor Viktor and Irina in FROM RUSSIA WITH FANGS. Their first unofficial outing as a couple is to Irina’s horrible husband’s funeral. Their first real date is going to the ballet with her nosy family. They just can’t catch a break. So we wanted to come up with a list of worse options than what we put our poor characters through.


Jacey:

Mini-golf – Mini-golf never goes as smoothly and you think it will. There’s always some family with four kids in front of you, holding you up or behind you, rushing you through. And then you add multiple tripping hazards, possibly slick surfaces and competition, plus the possibility of a giant plaster clown. And then you give your date a club. This is not a good idea.

Any form of camping –A lot of people enjoy camping and a lot of people are good at keeping up the polite façade necessary to keep a first date comfortable at the same time. There aren’t a lot of people who are good at doing those two things at the same time. You do not want to find out whether you get along while you’re isolated, without access to emergency personnel or witnesses. That is how Lifetime movies start.

Shooting range – I think I’ve made my stance on “not arming someone until you’re sure they’re compatible with you and not insane” pretty clear.

Gia:

Strip club—I should NOT have to explain why this is not a good idea.

Cooking class—I know this sounds benign. However, you would be so, so very wrong to make this a first date. You don’t know each other all that well (I’m assuming) and you have to cooperate in making a dish the both of you will eat. Knives are probably involved. You see where I’m going with this? The possibility of food being flung, feelings being hurt, and a crappy meal being cooked are way too high. Just order a pizza and watch a movie. You’ll thank me later.

Open mic poetry night—I am a judgey person, I’m not gonna lie. So if some guy asked me out and then took me to an open mic poetry night (especially if it is to hear him read there), my first thought is going to be pretentious, hipster dipshit. My idea of a good time does not consist of listening to angsty young adults talking about their childhood trauma of not getting a puppy when they were five. And it certainly isn’t listening to my date’s breakup with the love of his life set to Zamfir and his pan flute. The only way this would be an acceptable first date is if he took me to an open mic night, got up to read, and ended up reciting Mike Myer’s ex-girlfriend poems from So I Married an Axe Murderer. Then I’d probably marry that dude.

Blog Tour: Get Real (Get Real #1) by Tellulah Darling (Review + Giveaway)


Get Real by Tellulah Darling 
(Get Real, #1) 
Publication date: September 26th 2015
Genres: Comedy, New Adult, Paranormal, Romance


Synopsis:

Magic and Mayhem in Manhattan

Francesca Bellafiore comes from a nice Jewish family — one that happens to have magical powers. Underneath her good-girl exterior, though, she’s a wannabe badass with dreams of becoming a paranormal detective.

Party boy Rafael Muñoz does everything possible to publicly disappoint his high profile father. Privately, it’s a different story. His carefully crafted bad boy reputation masks the fact he’s a master illusionist, forced into solo covert ops. The role is wearing thin and Rafael longs to be part of a team.

When Francesca and Rafael meet, it’s love at first sight… For about five minutes. Rafael is spectacularly attractive—and, Francesca discovers, fully aware of the fact. Rafael knows from experience that girls like Francesca are more trouble than they’re worth.

So it sucks big time when they’re caught in a web of magic, minions, secrets, and enough sexual tension to power NYC. Their only chance to save the city and survive is to team up, trust each other–and maybe even fall in love.

Provided they don’t kill each other first.

Get Real is a romantic comedy, urban fantasy whirlwind with sass, sex, and swoon.


My Review:

“Sunshine is boring. Everything is all out there. No Mystery… You’re moonlight. Shadows and silvery radiance.”

  It is no secret I am a fan of Darlings writing, The Goddess trilogy is one of my favorite series, so when I got the chance to read her new book, of the NA variety, I was so happy. Tellulah Darling writes the most amazing banter and creates such swoony guys and the romances are always so cute and fun and that was also the case in Get Real. I loved the premise of Cadabras, people with magical abilities, I loved that the action was non-stop, this is a very fast paced book and I loved the characters.
      Francesca and Rafa are two characters who know what they want but because of different circumstances, they think they cant have it. Together, they are super fun, I loved the sarcasm and the playfuleness and I loved their developement through the book. The secondary characters are also great, Miss Darling always writes great friends.
  The random switches to different languages were somewhat confusing but I loved the different locations we see through the book, especially Rome and the cultural diversity we experience. I am looking forward to the sequel, to more of swoon and fun.

“New levels of swoon achieved, aforementioned gods had screwed off to have a celebratory vino.”
