Gemini Brandy Nacole is a writer of urban fantasy books. She is the author of the Shadow World series and the Spiritual Discord series published by Ponahakeola Press. A reader from a young age, Brandy has always loved folklore and stories of beings that go bump in the night.

Brandy lives in Arkansas with her husband, three never stopping kids, two snooty cats, two very lazy bearded dragons, and one mellow turtle. She is a member of the Ozark Romance Authors in Springfield, Missouri. Whenever she’s not reading or writing, Brandy is spending her time outdoors wheeling, hiking, playing amateur photographer, and enjoying a good laugh.

~DEEP IN THE HOLLOW~


Let me share some wisdom with you. 

There is evil in this world we cannot see, not because it is hidden from us, but because our minds refuse to accept its existence. 
But once we are able to get past what everyone says should not be, it becomes our responsibility to stop the evil we now see.

This insight wasn’t given to me until a year after I lost the most important person in my life: Bryce Rowan.

 Now, after another death at the same spot where he died—the overlook, where the mysterious lights dance amongst the trees—I begin to wonder if they were accidents after all.

Lucky for me, I’m not the only curious one in town. 

Cooper, a ghost hunter (aka chaser), and his sister Jada have moved to town and are starting to ask questions.

But the more we find out about this town and the people who live here, people who I have known my whole life, the more I begin to think there are those who would rather keep the evil secret, even if it means we will never be safe, and that more will die.

BROKEN FAITH Book #1




This was it.
 The moment Heaven and Hell would clash. 
But which unearthly being would win, the fallen angel or Hell’s hounds?

Overtaken by fear, I close my eyes.

Kayson is a Fallen Angel who has spent decades running from the Hell Hounds while searching for something that no one else believes can be so, not even God.

 Kayson is determined to find a Blood Child. 
But when a hound finds Kayson first, he is sure his end has come.

Falon, Alpha of the Hell Hounds, destroyer of the blood children, and devoted believer in his master’s plan, is bound and determined to drag Kayson back to Hell with him.

Sabrina is a Vampire, a half-breed created from one of Lucifer’s original blood children. 

After years of hiding, Sabrina’s fate changes when she finds Kayson barely alive. 
Against her instincts, Sabrina saves him. 
Now she and Kayson are both marked by the Hell Hounds.

Emma is an ordinary human, whose only problem is making ends meet, and getting over the hurt caused by her untrustworthy brother. 

Her everyday problems become supernatural ones when she finds Kayson and Sabrina hiding in her parent’s backyard shed.

Kayson, Sabrina and Emma are unlikely allies, thrown together by chance to fight against the most powerful creatures of the underworld in order to follow their world-changing quest. 

But will the broken faith of one break the faith of all?

RAGING STORM Book #2




After Kayson fell from heaven, his life got complicated. 

His greatest enemies, the hell hounds, thrived on Earth and hunted not only the fallen but the blood children created by their Master. 
After being chased and confronted by one of those very creatures, Kayson’s life becomes even more complicated. 
He never expected to be rescued by a vampire named Sabrina. 
He also never expected to become her protector after she falls prey to a hell hound’s deadly bite.

Falon, head of the hell hounds, has been desperately trying to hunt down Kayson and Sabrina but with the rain steadily falling—due to interference by the lower-realm Angels, also known as the assemblies—Falon grows irritated. His only option is to threaten those that may know where the fallen can be found.

With the threat of the hounds finding Kayson and the other fallen, Kayson is running out of time.

 Stille, once a respected Warrior in the assemblies, is pushing Kayson to leave an unconscious Sabrina behind. 
After all Sabrina has done for him, Kayson refuses to abandon her.
 But will his decision leave his friends vulnerable to attack?

Sabrina is conscious enough to sense the struggles that Kayson is facing.

 If he knew the torture she’s been going through, she knows he would suffer even more. 
Sabrina silently fights the darkness that is seeping into her dreams, while struggling to stay strong for Kayson.
 But when the pain becomes too much, Sabrina has to make a choice that may cost not only her life, but the lives of others as well.

DARKEST REACHES Book #3




Kayson and the other fallen angels have risked their lives to keep Sabrina safe as she recovered from a Hell hound’s bite.

 Just when she began to improve, Hell was unleashed as the hounds attacked, and kidnapped Sabrina.

Now, only days after the fight between the fallen and the hounds, Kayson is determined to find Sabrina and bring her back from Hell. 

The only thing standing in his way is a dangerous fallen angel named Iraja. Iraja has the means to find Sabrina, but he doesn’t do favors without a price.

Sabrina is now facing the nightmare she’s been running from since being turned into a vampire a century ago: her eternal condemnation to Hell. Knowing her only chance of survival may rest by playing nice and turning Hell hound Falon against Lucifer, Sabrina gives into the bitter darkness and now has to fight to remember the good soul she truly is. 

But when she discovers the role her and the innocent human Emma are forced to play, will her fear get the better of her, and will she be lost forever?

In the third installment of the Spiritual Discord series, the will to survive is tested, worst fears become a reality, and for one, betrayal becomes the only option.


5 STARS

“I want more :) I'm so hooked on this series. Just don't know what's going to happen next. Then I felt guilty because I started liking Fallon. You get to see more of his personality in this book. I can't wait to see what happns next. ~ A Whole New World Through Books

TAINT

(The SNAP Trilogy #2)

By Tara Dawn


"Captivating and enthralling - this series certainly will not let you go."~ Bonny Capps, author of The Killer Series
"This suspense-packed thriller is one that fans of dark romance should not miss."
~ Courtney Lane, author of the Wicked Trinity Series
I'm so excited to get this installment into everyone's hands. It was a very emotional story for me to write. One that left me stranded at the top of a crazy ass rollercoaster. If you have yet to become a Snap Addict, don't run away. I've got a special going on for new readers. Thanks for checking out my newest release. I hope you enjoy it. ~ Tara Dawn


Hazel

I don't know who I am anymore, or what I'm becoming. 
Time doesn't exist in this godforsaken Hell I call my life.
 Every time I find a semblance of hope, it's bled away.

Just like I'm bleeding away. 
The longer he believes he's won, the more I die inside. I may be nothing but a shell by the time this is over.

Cash
I failed her. I couldn't keep her safe.
 Now I may lose her completely.
 We're running against a clock controlled by a madman and we don't know when he plans to end his game. 
 
Every minute that passes without finding him makes the thought of killing him that much sweeter.

Phil

I didn't think it would be so easy. Pretty soon, my Snap will be on the streets and I'll be living the dream.
 
 That is, after I take Cash out. 
With him gone, I'll control not only the drug, but Hazel as well. 
If she listens, she will have a hell of a life. 
Right. Beside. Me.

*This series contains scenes of drug abuse, brutality, and rape. Reader discretion is advised.
 
 
 Review

Well. I feel fucked. 

I thought SNAP was something that had to be read to be believed. But really, there is nothing that I can say about Taint that won't give anything away. Or that you would believe. 

Tara Dawn is an author to be watchful for. She has this ability to turn words and to create characters that feel so real and in depth, it actually amazes me.

This trilogy is a hard one, and not something that can be easily pulled off. The emotion, the heat, the depth that is in this book. It takes someone with a twisted mind and strong heart to write a book like this. And Tara has shown that she has both.

I wouldn't want to get anywhere near her brain, can you imagine the scary things you'd find?

I applaud Tara Dawn. She knows her characters, she knows her story. She knows what she's doing at every turn.

To be able to write such complex characters, such a complex story, it takes a lot.

There are twists and turns, there are parts that will make you want to scream. You will feel bad for the characters, you will hate the characters. You will love, you will cry, You will wonder why you picked up this book. And then you will get to the end, and you will know why. Because it's the type of book that you can't let go.

I can say the same thing over and over again. I can go over all the reasons why I think you should read this book. I can go over all the reasons why Tara Dawn is amazing. But I'm not. Because really, you just have to trust me when I say this is a series that you would want to read.

The next book is going to take us for a ride and I have to go prepare myself. I don't know if that's possible but I'm going to try.

I want to say thank you to Tara, for allowing me to read SNAP back in December, and for allowing me to read Taint now.

I know that I'm going to be thinking about these books for a long time.

-Abri




Excerpt:

My hand slips from his and I make my way to the kitchen. I look at the bottle and back to my glass for a moment before putting the bottle to my lips. The wine fills my mouth, and I gulp it down hoping it will drown the emotions swirling within me. But the lump in my throat remains and grows larger with every pull off the bottle. The more I swallow, the more it feels like I'm choking. I lower the bottle, letting it thunk on the counter top, and try to breathe through the panic attack building inside of me.

"I was infatuated with you."

The rumble of his voice makes me clutch the counter, my breath caught in my chest. As much as I want to know, I can't listen to it right now. It's all too much to take in when I'm still coming to terms with what Phil did to me.

"The longer I watched you, the more I was drawn to you," he continues, his voice getting closer. "You learn a lot about people when they don't know you're looking." My back warms as the heat of his body gets closer. He places his hands on the counter, trapping me between his arms. "Want to know what I learned about you?"

I stare down at the counter, thankfully hidden by the curtain of hair falling around my face, and shake my head. Cash's slight stubble on his jaw rubs against the side of my face as he leans closer, his chest grazing my back. His heart beats a rhythm that mine recognizes and tries to keep in tune with. I'd rather face Phil right now, because at least I know where I stand with him.

"You are selfless," he says, disregarding me. "You're happiest when those around you are happy. You have this need to help others without getting anything in return. But you're too prideful to let anyone in and help you when you need it most. You push people away by putting the focus back on them and deal with shit that you shouldn't have to deal with alone. And you do it all with the most beautiful smile I have every seen." His arms drape gently around me, and he rests his head against mine. "It's hard to find genuinely good people in the world," he whispers. "Trust me, I know. I've spent my life watching people selfishly choose their needs over others. And I turned into one of them."

Cash turns me around and cups the side of my face lifting it up to his. "I didn't want this to happen. I wanted to do my job and come home. But I couldn't stop thinking about you. I wanted what you gave everyone else freely. So I selfishly took it. I needed to see you smile at me like that and know I was the reason for it. And when you did, I couldn't get enough." He searches my eyes as he bares his heart to me. His mouth hovers over mine, bathing my lips in the warmth of his whiskey-scented breath with every word. "I wanted more. I thought I'd get it and walk away from you when this was over. But there's a piece of me that thinks I deserve this…" His lips brush against mine tormentingly as the shaky words fall from his lips. "That I deserve you."

#1 Raising Ryann

He's the stereotypical fighter- 100 percent alpha male. 
The kind of guy a girl should avoid at all costs. 
When he's hired to privately train me, avoiding him isn't an option.
 Most girls would love to drop their panties, even if it is just to catch a glimpse of his dimpled smile. 
I won't fall victim to his charm. 
That's what I tell myself at least, though it's torture when my mind's at war with my body. 
Something about the tattooed bad boy draws me in.
 It isn't just the broad shoulders, piercing eyes, and muscular frame that has me entranced.
 Luke Ryann has a secret.
 And I plan to find out what it is.


#2 Resisting Ryann


What happens when the person you love becomes threatened by your very existence?
 How far will you go to keep them safe?

Luke Ryann will do anything to protect the woman he loves, even if it means shattering her heart.
 When the mystery of his past comes back to haunt him, he leaves Reese behind and enters the life of crime he had worked so hard to escape. 
When all is said and done, will he be able to get out of this alive, or will he be in over his head?

She's been in love with him since her childhood, but now she questions everything. 
After Reese Johnson discovers Luke's disappearance has nothing to do with the MMA, she faces a difficult choice.
 Can she find it in her heart to forgive him? 
Or will the secrets and lies be too damaging for her to trust again?
 Will this couple ever have a chance? 
You know what they say.

Sometimes ... love just isn't enough.


#3 Breaking Ryann

He promised to leave me alone, but that was a lie. 
I should have known he’d have this pull on me—seeping through my skin and into my bones, burning me from the outside in.
 It’s just like when we were kids, and I can no longer avoid him.
 I’ve accepted it, but what will it take to convince him that I am no longer his? Is that really what I want?


I told her I’d leave her alone. But who was I kidding? 
I’ve never been one to back away from a challenge.
 He stole my girl—my future—from me.
 I’m coming back with a vengeance. 
I’m taking back what he took from me.
 After all the secrets and lies, can we come back from this? 
Even if it breaks me, I’ll stop at nothing to protect what’s always been mine.

Excerpt

He runs a hand over the back of his neck, “Oh, and just so you know, when we train together…” He smirks, then leaning in he whispers against my ear, “I’m the one in control.”

I blink a couple times, opening my mouth to argue, then decide against it.

Pulling away he meets my eyes, “Can you handle that?” He’s still whispering.

I feel my cheeks heat. I want to say, Actually, I don’t know if I can. Instead I answer, “Yeah, I think I can handle it,” in a funny voice that I don’t recognize. The cocky son of a bitch can probably do anything he wants talking to me like that!

His mouth turns up. “Good.”

Excerpt


Feeling a stich in my side, I slowed to a stop and unzipped my jacket. With my hands on my hips, I took several deep breaths, embracing the sharp burn in my lungs. I loved this time of year, when the snow was at its last days. I enjoyed the cold white sheets of ice, because I knew that they would be gone in no time. Just like everything else.

“Hey, girl!” An SUV full of guys pulled up beside me, the one in the passenger’s seat sticking his head out the window. “What’s your name?” he asked, looking me up and down.

Ignoring him, I turned on my heel and kept walking. But the SUV stayed at my side, slowly skimming the edge of the sidewalk. Warmth flooded my body, along with a mix of fear and unease.

“Hey!” the driver shouted, leaning over the console. “We’re talking to you! Come here!”

They must have been students, like me and Sara. The neighborhood wasn’t far from campus and we knew a handful of people at school who had rented houses here before, out of a dislike for dorms and apartments. If these guys went to UW, I hoped that today would be our first and last encounter.

“Maybe she needs to warm up,” the passenger suggested. “Here, Ice Queen! Have some coffee.” He threw a Starbucks cup out the window at me, despite the fact that the container wasn’t empty.

As I braced myself, steaming hot coffee burst through the lid and splattered all over me. I staggered back and collided with another runner, as we both fell to the ground.

“Yes!” the guys in the SUV cheered. They took off, speeding through the neighborhood, as the passenger stuck his head out the window and rejoiced in celebration.

“Jerks,” the stranger beside me muttered.

Sitting back on my elbow, I looked over at the one thing I hated the most in this world right now. The one thing that had to be here at this moment. A Guy.

“Let me help you up,” he offered, extending his hand for me to take. When we were both on our feet again, he looked at me and smiled. It was the best smile I had ever seen.

Dressed in jogging pants and a sweatshirt, he was the embodiment of everything I had been searching for and now sworn off for good. Tall. Lean. Attractive. His short, curly hair was the darkest shade of brunette, yet not quite black. His eyes were soft and light, his irises somewhere in between blue and gray. My mouth watered at the sight of his chiseled cheekbones, strong jawline, and the slight stubble on his face.

He was my dream guy, but I had given up on dreaming a long time ago. So I did what I had to do. I ran.

“Hey, wait,” he pleaded, grabbing my arm. “Are you okay? I’m sorry about those guys. Don’t worry about them. They’re just jerks.”

I nodded, then looked down at the coffee stains on my clothes. These would be fun to get out, especially since our washing machine was a gadget sent straight from hell.

“I’m fine,” I said. “Thanks.”


With my head down, I stepped back and walked away from him.

Book 1: It's In His Heart

Book 2: It's In His Touch


Award winning author, Shelly Alexander grew up traveling the world, earned a BBA in Marketing, and landed a corporate job in Dallas, TX before marriage lured her to the beautiful Southwest. After growing up with four older brothers and having three sons of her own, she decided to escape her male-dominated world for some ‘girl time’ by reading romance novels. While reading in the New Mexico sunshine, she began to dream up love stories she’d like to write herself some day.

The years passed with her helping to run the family business, volunteering for every field trip and school function imaginable, and incalculable loads of dirty laundry generated by her three active boys. When she survived invasive breast cancer, she decided it was now or never and bought her first laptop so she could start writing down her stories.
