BOOK & AUTHOR INFO:
Deception in Emeralds (Book Four: Ransomed Jewels Series) by award-winning and best-selling author Laura Landon.

Publication date: March 14th, 2017
Genre: Historical Romance/Mystery and Suspense

ABOUT DECEPTION IN EMERALDS:
BARNABY LINSCOTT, under orders from the Crown, must apprehend or kill one of England’s most elusive villains. The means to accomplish his mission are anything but clear, but his mind is resolved. The man has already murdered three government agents, and Barnaby vows he will not be the fourth, though he has little to lose. That is, until he meets the partner assigned to carry out his deadly mission.

LADY MILLICENT CHANDLER has lost everything. Her beautiful Cliffside Manor has been burned, her parents, her brother Thomas, and her sister Polly all murdered. When her trusted servants bring her their suspicions that her handsome neighbor is directly involved, she knows exactly what she’ll do. She will accept his proposal of marriage. And take her revenge.


DECEPTION IN EMERALDS EXCERPT & LINKS:
Millicent had tossed and turned for hours, unable to go to sleep. How could she sleep when Barnaby had disappeared? How could she sleep when she didn’t know if he was safe, or lying dead somewhere in the dark?
She held her breath again and listened. Not a sound except the constant settling of a house several hundred years old. She listened again, then threw her covers back and got to her feet.
She refused to open the door and look down the hall. She would not give in to the impulse to go to his room to check if he’d returned without knocking on her door. If he had, she’d be sure to give him a piece of her mind in the morning.
Not that she could have slept anyway. Not after the night she had, suffering Radburn’s company for hours in a ballroom full of people who disapproved of her very presence there.
Millicent’s skin still crawled from his touch, and her temper was still on edge from the way Radburn had paraded her through the ballroom, as if she were some priceless jewel on display.
Even her friends and neighbors who’d come to celebrate her good fortune seemed to have changed their minds by the end of the evening. And the disappointment on the faces of the three men who’d been her father’s closest friends was even more distressing. Oh, how she wanted to pull them aside and tell them that everything they thought about her was a lie.
Her mother’s beautiful face appeared before her, and, without bidding them, tears filled her eyes and spilled down her cheeks. She thought of Polly’s energy and exuberance for life. Knowing that her sister would never experience so many of life’s choicest moments ripped Millicent’s heart from her breast.
And perhaps most painful of all was the loss of her brother. She and Thomas had always been close. No doubt because it had just been the two of them for so long before Polly was born. Or maybe because he had always looked out for her—always been there when she needed him.
She closed her eyes and envisioned his handsome face. He never lacked for female admirers. Never had a shortage of—

 Shivering against him as she parted her lips to speak, Waverlee moaned as his tongue swept forward, stealing the opportunity to deepen their kiss. And holy moly, the man could kiss. And not just any old kiss either. It was the-steal-your-breath-I-can’t-live-without-his-touch-because-nothing-else-in-the-world-matters kind of kiss a girl spends her life dreaming about. Their tongues danced together for long minutes as everything else faded away. The people. The noise. Everything took a backseat to the fierce passion Shaw created with a simple touch of his mouth to hers. Forcing herself to find her voice when Shaw lifted his mouth from hers to take a deep breath, Waverlee flashed a furtive glance up at his darkened eyes. “Wow,” she breathed shakily, clutching handfuls of his light blue dress shirt in her fists as the world seemed to spin at warp speed, “I..I...don’t think I’ve ever felt anything like that before,” she whispered, the words catching in her throat as his finger swept against her lower lip. “Then you best hold on real tight to me, baby, ‘cause I’m just getting started,” he replied, dropping his head to steal another deep, wet kiss from her lips as he curved one big hand around her neck, wrapping her silky hair around his fist and tugging gently. button-buy-link

Blog Tour: Forged by Fate by Stacy Von Haegert




As the younger brother to the King of Angels, Stefen Von Emmerich had spent his life resenting his royal obligations and doing the exact opposite of what was expected of him. However, all that 'couldn't-give-a-damn' attitude was hurled right out of his well-guarded window the day he had the misfortune of being killed... 

After being turned into a Vampire, Stefen finds more than his mere existence to be altered. Now a Fallen, a hybrid with his maker's famed Dragon blood coursing through his veins, Stefen must rediscover himself and his newly awakening powers.   

When he is sent on a mission back to Hell, the place of his death, he discovers much more than what he bargained for. A child was left behind as a result of the battle that forever changed him. A victim of the war between the realms. Another hybrid, like him. 

Compelled by reasons beyond his own understanding, Stefen strikes a deal to help the innocent child. As she grows into a beautiful young woman, the more intertwined their two lives become and the more perilous their unique paths grow. It's not long before an old Oracle's words from years ago begin to ring true..."Fate holds the cards. Time reveals the hand."




5 stars

Can I say wow, fantastic story. Angeles, Vampires, Demons hybrids, lots of action, intrigue, misery, war, the old and true about battle versus good.
I started the book and was immediately drawn into the story, and page after page, it drew me in further and further. That Earth became as my home, the fights the feeling in the book became mine.
The characters were awesome. The younger brother of the King of Angels, Stefen Von Emmerich , spent his years avoiding his duties. Having been turned into a Vampire he found he existence had changed. He was now a Fallen, a hybrid with his maker's Dragon blood running through his veins. He now must find himself and come to understand the power that are awakening in him.
Sent to Hell on a mission, the same place where he died. A child had been left behind after the battle that changed him forever. She is a hybrid like him.
Striking a deal to protect the child, which is beyond his own understanding. As she grows into a beautiful woman their lives become even more entwined.
It's not long before an old oracle's words from years ago begin to ring true..."Fate holds the cards. Time reveals the hand."
A story well writen, love it and can't wait to read the next one, for that character is very intriguing.

I received a free copy for my honest review!

Review by Jara


BOOK #1


Ash LaGoryen was the second son, born of nobility into the Ushum bloodline-House of the Dragon in the year 776. History claims in every generation a child of royal blood is born to the four elemental houses possessing “The gift”- an ability to bend their chosen element. Ash was this child and fire was his gift. But…Possessing such a skill was a dangerous thing for the young boy of only seven summers.

Present day
Ash has spent twelve hundred years staying under the radar of the monster that ransacked his homelands as a boy and later, after years of torture, turned him into the thing he hated the most. A Vampire. The polished gentleman that stands before Ash in the mirror now, conducts his business during the daylight hours and enjoys his lush, reclusive life as one of the world’s wealthiest empire moguls.

Vastly different from the young immortal that escaped the pits of Hell all those years ago, Ash has zero interest of returning to the station of his royal birth. But, when an ancient prophecy comes to light he finds himself dragged right back into the world of his ancestral bloodline. When the foretold “Chosen one”, with the power to unite the realms, turns out to be a beautiful young mortal, Ash is faced with a whole new set of challenges as an impending war looms around them. He will have to weigh his choices carefully as the demons of his past rise up to threaten his future.

Stacy went on to expand her literary repertoire by diving head-first into the exciting world of vampires, dragons, angels and elemental benders with her first dark fantasy novel, Forged of Fire.
