Storm Crazy, Destiny Paramortals #1 by Livia Quinn

Welcome to Destiny, home to the Paramortals since…well, forever…where human neighbors and their new sheriff live alongside shifters, dragons, vampires and a family of djinn.
Just don’t tell the humans.
To former Navy pilot-turned-sheriff Jack Lang, the town of Destiny seemed the perfect place to settle down – safe, sane and secure. But his investigation into a perplexing death shatters the alleged calm and threatens the tranquil home life he hoped to provide for his daughter. Especially, when he catches his mail lady in the act of stealing an antique vase after stepping over said body. Soon, Jack discovers Tempest Pomeroy is an outright trouble magnet who never fails to test the limits of his patience or the law.
For most of her life, Tempe’s denied her heritage, but as the sheriff’s investigation veers off into the bizarre and intrudes into the existence of the Paramortals, danger heads toward them like an F5 tornado… Look out, Tempest’s about to go Storm Crazy.
A human sheriff, a storm witch, and the quirky, supernatural town of Destiny. What could go wrong?

An Uncommon Love (Romantic Realms Collection 2) by MJ SchillerRead An Uncommon Love (Romantic Realms #2) by MJ Schiller #FreeBookFriday #Read

Princess Adriana had her life all figured out…
Or, to be more precise, she had her life all figured out for her. Before she was even born she was betrothed to Garin, and that was perfectly acceptable as he became her childhood friend, and then, eventually, the person she would swap kisses with inside the palace gardens. She never questioned it, never had a reason to, until the day a commoner was brought before her father, the King, to be punished.
…until the day her eyes conncected with blacksmith Seth Hobb’s across a stone courtyard.
When he creeps into the castle at night to thank her for freeing him, they begin to build a relationship with one another that is often as explosive as it is endearing. But fate ends up separating the two and they must undertake a long and arduous journey to be reunited.
But with everything against them, can an uncommon love like theirs survive?
Even then, can Adriana make Seth see her for herself and not as the princess he imagines? And if she does, will she ever be able to convince her father that, despite his objections over Seth being a commoner, there is nothing “common” about him at all?

USA Today bestselling author Lisa Carlisle loves stories with dark, brooding heroes and independent heroines. She’s honored to be a multi-published author writing in different genres since she’s wanted to be a writer since the sixth grade.  For much of her professional career, she’s written non-fiction — but she’s discovered writing romance is the most fun. Her romances have been named Top Picks at Night Owl Reviews and All Romance Ebooks.
When she was younger, she worked in a variety of jobs, moving to various countries. She was deployed to Okinawa, Japan, while in the military; backpacked alone through Europe;  and lived in Paris before returning to the U.S. She owned a bookstore for a few years as she loves to read. She’s now married to a fantastic man, and they have two kids, two kittens, and too many fish.

Interview with Lisa Carlisle

Why did you write this book?
I’ve always had a thing for gargoyles. I envisioned writing a story about five statues; the story begins when one begins to move. That story bloomed into a much larger world—one on a mystical Scottish island with five gargoyle shifter brothers. I wrote the first book, Knights of Stone: Mason, and was thrilled and surprised when readers asked for more. Of course, I was happy to comply and ideas began spinning for each brother. Bryce is the second oldest brother and the beta of the gargoyle clan. He’s content as his role as second—until he meets Mairi and his entire world changes.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I enjoy reading romance, mysteries, and nonfiction, but the last year I’ve read many shifter romances.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I’m drawn to dark, brooding characters, like Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights, or Snape in the Harry Potter books.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
For 2016, my main focus is on stories for each brother in the Knights of Stone, but I’m also working on other paranormal and military romances. I’m also in three upcoming, multi-author boxed sets.
Please tell us about your latest book.
What happens when love interferes with plans, during the most unfortunate of times?
Gargoyle shifter, and the last of her clan, Mairi, is running for her life, desperate to keep hidden. When she spots two winged creatures flying high above her in the Highlands of Scotland, she momentarily panics, thinking they’re the same beasts who murdered her family along with her entire clan. Realizing they’re gargoyles like her, she takes flight and discreetly follows them to an island.
Bryce, beta of his clan and drummer for the Knights of Stone, senses something is amiss on the Isle of Stone. At first, he believes he’s merely discomfited by the rumors of atrocities occurring in the Highlands. However, he discovers an intruder on the magically-concealed island home. Once he ascertains that the flame-haired beauty is the sole survivor of a traumatizing attack, he returns to the Highlands to warn his former clan.
Somewhere between cautioning the clan and realizing the necessity of destroying the beasts that threaten them all, Mairi and Bryce discover an attraction that quickly evolves into a consuming passion. A problem even greater than the murderous fiends becomes apparent – the love they share may not survive the battle.
For a unique shifter romance series with hot men in kilts, read about the brothers in the Knights of Stone today!
