Adrenaline by Sunniva Dee

Adrenaline by Sunniva Dee
Publication date: April 30th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Romance
Life’s the shit!
Chicks squeal over how wild and yummy I am, play their silly games trying to tie me down. But I’m free as a bird, doing what makes life life: kicking extreme-sport-ass!
I base jump, snowboard, bungee jump. I do anything for the rush.
Then, Ingela blows into town for college—a cool Swedish blast of trouble. Foulmouthed and runway-gorgeous, the girl seeps in like poison and melts the freaking brain.
To Ingela I am what chicks were to me: pastime, leisure, entertainment, pleasure. She’s killing me, and I’m digging it. There’s a new rush in town!Yeah, I hunt down my highs, and now the chase is on. I’ll catch her soon enough, just, what’s the deal with her ex?
With Ingela, sex is a dance. A slow tango where skin flows over skin. It is slick readiness, a quiet welcome. It’s smooth, warm, right, and all wrong.
On and off. On and off. Again, she’s wrecked with grief. It’s a reminder of how I destroy her, how crushed relationships shouldn’t be revived.
We’ve done this for years, now, but clearly we’re in for more.

Originally from Norway, I moved to the United States twelve years ago. I hold a Master’s degree in languages and taught Spanish at college level before settling in at the Savannah College of Art and Design as an adviser.

I write New Adult fiction, sometimes with a paranormal twist—like in “Shattering Halos,” published by The Wild Rose Press in February 24th 2014 and in “Stargazer,” released November 2014. The first book I’ve self-published was the New Adult Contemporary novel “Pandora Wild Child,” which made me a proud indie author in October 28th 2014.

I specialize in impulsive heroines, bad-boys, and good-boys running amok. Then, there’s the intense love, physical and emotional attraction beyond reason—sensory overload for the reader as well as for the characters. Like in real life, I hope you’re unable to predict what comes next in my stories.

Yes, so I write what I love to read, and depending on the reader, you’ll find my books to be a fast-paced emotional rollercoaster—or disturbing because the struggles of love aren’t your thing. Here’s to hoping you have the same reading vice as me!

White Raven by J.L. Weil

White Raven by J.L. Weil
(Raven Series, #1)
Publication date: March 27th 2015
Genres: Paranormal Romance, Young Adult

It only took one heartbeat to change my life—one chilling phone call in the middle of the night.
And then, as if my life didn’t already suck, my dad sends my brother and me to some idyllic island for the summer to live with a grandma we never met. WTH. Naturally, I rebel. In the end, I find myself shipped off to Raven Hallow…and bored to tears.
Until I get an eyeful of the mind-bendingly gorgeous Zane Hunter. The dark-hair cutie makes my pulse go bonkers, and I think, maybe this might not be so bad after all. Six feet of swoon inducing looks, with a hint of Celtic charm in his voice, he was the type of guy that left a string of broken hearts in his wake. And I had all the heartbreak I could handle.
Yet, there is something uncanny, almost supernatural about Zane, and it’s not just his devastating smirk. No matter how much distance I put between us, Raven Hallow isn’t big enough, and the sparking tension between is undeniable. Of course, the one person I want to avoid becomes my salvation.
My past comes back to terrorize me. Someone wants me dead, and the closer I get to the truth, the more I realize my whole life is a lie. I am no longer sure what is more frightening—the attempts on my life or the guy whose heart and soul are synchronized with mine.

Shadowed Origins
“Oh God, you saw me like—like that. Oh God.”
Before she could take a deep calming breath, dry heaves racked her thin frame. Prepared for this reaction, he grabbed the waste can by the bed and held it as she emptied the small amount of acid in her stomach. The convulsive retching tightened her back and stretched it beyond tolerance, judging by her whimper.
Bile scorched the back of his throat.
He let his fingertips glide whisper soft over her shoulders where unmarked, all the while making soothing noises. The language he spoke didn’t seem to register any meaning for her. Thank God. He’d let gentle actions convey his meaning, anything to help allay her distress.
Not for the first time, jealousy over Kenner’s ability to console made him wish for a less destructive talent. Especially since his ability fell far short of either protecting her or alleviating her pain. Last night he’d asked Kenner to come in and hold her hand for a few minutes. Her pain outweighed his possessiveness. The dark room had concealed the moisture leaking from his eyes, but Kenner would’ve picked up on his feelings. Taylor was glad to avoid any conversations at the time.
When she caught her breath, he went into the bathroom and retrieved a damp towel to wipe her mouth. It was essential for her to stay calm to heal. A feather-light touch of his fingers along her scalp relaxed her until her eyelids drooped. It was the best he could think to do.
“Kyley, please understand. You’ve got nothing to be ashamed of.” Her tears washed his soul in guilt. Yet his anger at what she’d suffered from the sociopath blinded him. Every thought hardened to a focused point. He’d take years torturing Roth. For now, he wiped the tears flowing down her cheeks. She needed this catharsis. His intuitive sense dictated she’d experience this many times before feeling whole again. She’d get there. He’d see to it.
