Blitz: Death @LilaRose78

Title: Death
Series: The Horsemen Series #1
Genre: Urban Fantasy Romance

Here’s the problem with myths and legends; they're fiction. At one time, they may have been stories of real people, but over time, the story was passed from person to person, so what was once fact, becomes the written fables of those long ago.

This is the true story of Death and the five horsemen.

Quitting her teaching career and working full time on her fledgling editing business, Julie Michaels isn't prepared for the shedload of changes heading her way. To be precise, it’s just one screeching stop on the crazy train away. 

Dean "Death" Apocalos never imagined change would come so swiftly in the form of love, chaos, and Decay. Dean and his three brothers are about to see their worst fear come to light; their forgotten brother and the fifth horseman, Decay.

Previously entombed, someone has let the loon loose on LA. It’s now up to the horsemen to put him back in his box… before he upsets the balance once more.
I was born in Brisbane Australia, my step-dad was in the Army which caused us to move around a lot. We finally settled in country Victoria, Australia. I am the youngest of four children and I can say that I was spoilt a bit. I drove my mum crazy when I refused to eat meat at a young age.

Now I live with my husband and two children, and I find myself regretting all the troubles I put my parents through because my monsters are just as picky as I was.
I wear many hats in the book world, but my newest is author. I juggle writing with being a wife, and mother to a family of six, working for Hot Tree Publishing as submissions coordinator, pre-edit beta reading for Hot Tree Editing, and of course, I still admin for Bex 'n' Books' book blog. 
Geez, I'm tired just typing all that, but I wouldn't trade a single moment. Not even for all the Chinese food and cheesecake in the universe.

I’m a California native, who lives in the South – Virginia to be exact. I still prefer sushi to fried chicken, avocados to okra, and I absolutely loathe humidity. I do love watching the seasons change though. My husband and I have been here for ten years, and I still get giddy like a school girl every time it snows.

I’m married to my high school sweetheart. We were married young, barely out of high school. Everyone told us we were crazy and stupid. We’ll be celebrating 12 years of marriage this year, and I love him more every single day. We’re living proof that true love knows no age limit.

We’ve been blessed with two beautiful daughters who continue to amaze and inspire me, and are probably making me go a bit insane. I’m obsessed with yoga and pilates and am a complete chocoholic. I apologize in advance for the amount of sweets in my book.

I’m absolutely obsessed with romance novels (duh) and probably could have built a vacation home with the amount of money I’ve invested in them over the years. Romance novels take you to another place, making your heart race, emotions swell, passion run free. After so many years of meeting hundreds of fictional characters and discovering their worlds, I found myself creating my own.

I am represented by Jill Marsal of Marsal Lyon Literary Agency, LLC.



Giving love a second chance is not easy, open up your heart after the pain and suffering is a process that takes time. Now, imagine being a twentyish widow with a four-year daughter, trust me I don't think it would be easy.

"When You're ready" is the story of Clare and Logan. She has lost her husband to a terrible illness and has been grieving since then. One domestic accident with her daughter takes her to the ER to meet a handsome doctor. Logan doesn't think he can be loved and after a failed marriage he is the typical player.

Their attraction is instant and very strong, of course they both have their own fears to overcome. The relationship flows naturally and it's romantic. The story is fast to read, the rhythm is constant and the writing is quite good.

There were a few things that were totally obvious but it still is a good romance.

My best friend calls me “her Fairy Godmother,” but I feel more like Cinderella. After over twenty-five years of living a typical life, I now live my dreams and I create them too.

Nothing is better than creating a brand new world from a blank piece of paper. Breathing life into characters and watching their stories unfold—I am truly blessed.

I live in on eight acres in middle Tennessee with my husband, my dad, one of my three children, two dogs and three cats. I am privileged to have two precious grandsons.

When I’m not on my computer or reading my kindle, you’ll usually find me in the kitchen. I love to cook! If I’m not there, I’m on the fields, watching my grandsons’ soccer or baseball games. 

It’s never too late to chase your dreams. I’m proof you can catch them, even if arthritis slows you down. Who knows, your own Fairy Godmother may be just a dream away.

"Changing Tides" is a short, sweet and romantic story about finding love for the second time. A year after losing her husband who was a Marine but died in a traffic accident (talk about misfortune) Monica meets a sexy orthopedic surgeon called Jason.

The book is really short so the action comes almost in minutes. There is passion, excitement, and love. Both Monica and Jason are adults, which is why their relationship is simple, straight to the point and mature.

Monica's kids (she has three) have mix feelings about their relationship and their actions affect her and Jason.

Overall, this is a nice book, easy to read, entertaining and sweet.

His shirt had tightened and become more taut against him when he’d folded his arms across his chest, and this only further sent my body into a wild frenzy. Frustrated that he was having this effect on me, I straightened my shirt, attempting to gain some composure.
“Ms. Professional,” he said as he looked me up and down. A hint of hunger lingered in his eyes as he studied me intently. He licked his lips, and I didn’t move from under his stare. I looked at him, letting him know I wouldn’t back down from him. My barriers, my walls, were not coming down. Plus, what was wrong with how I dressed? It was professional and didn’t get me any unwanted attention.
“You know nothing about me.” He seemed like a man who hid behind humor and his big gun who had the occasional on point observation. He’d been right about me being professional and it pissed me off. Because no matter how I tried to shake the way my body responded to his dazzling eyes and the way he kept touching his gun, I couldn’t help but wonder how big his gun really was. Snap out of it, Avery. I took my hand and smoothed out my shirt again. Who did he think he was? I barely knew him, and he thought he knew me so well. Sure, he was hot. He dripped testosterone and exuded sex with every move of his mouth. And that little bump on his nose was endearing. He had probably broken his nose a few times, and I secretly wondered what had caused the breaks. But regardless of how fucking delicious he was, he didn’t know me.
“I know that you’re impenetrable. Like an unbreakable vault.” He was right. I was impermeable. He would do well to remember that. It didn’t mean I had to like that he’d guessed that about me.
“Yes, well, you’re a jerk.” Wow, great comeback, Avery. It wasn’t like me to lose control and this guy, he was already under my skin. I was flustered, sweat beaded on my forehead, and I was pretty sure I needed to change my panties.
“Ouch.” He grabbed at his heart. “Here.” He went in his breast pocket and pulled out a card. “My information. Strictly professional of course.” He winked at me and gave me a smile, his perfectly straight teeth dazzling me.

“Thanks,” I mumbled, snatching the card and shoving it in my pocket.

“I’m Jason Lewis.” I held out my hand for him to shake.

“Maxwell Craver.” His strong, calloused grip enveloped my hand. He put a little too much force in the shake, but I liked it rough. Just a little. Pain and pleasure mixed together was quite a sexual experience. The pain of being penetrated at first had been a lot for me, I wouldn’t deny that, but the gentle caress of a strong hand, the cupping of my balls as I felt my release… it was a sensation I had missed. It’d been a while since I’d had sex, and as I watched this man, his sex appeal, it brought back all those wonderful memories.

“Craver, huh? You own this place?” I motioned toward the Craver Automotive sign over the shop. 

“Family shop. Dad still owns it,” he mumbled as he walked toward the office and I allowed myself the opportunity to admire the view. He moved the rag he’d used to clean his hands to his back pocket and it was a wonderful sight. A wonderful round, tight sight.

“Are you coming? We can talk about your car.” Maxwell held open the door to the office and I quickly caught up.

“Sorry,” I mumbled. I did this a lot. Admired men from afar. It was no secret I was gay. Just a lack of suitable men who piqued my interest. I didn’t do the flamboyant type. Not that it bothered me at all, I just liked a manly man. A man who liked to get dirty. I smiled to myself. Oh yes, a man who liked to get dirty, like the one standing in front of me.
