House of Guardians: Paranormal Romance - Sons of the Olympian Gods (The Ambrosia Trilogy Book 1)

What if you were destined to be with the son of Hades, but you were crazy in love with the son of Apollon?



"Is this really a demigod? I don't exactly know what my expectations were - it's not like I have anything to compare it to. But I certainly did not expect a demigod to be walking around in ripped jeans with a beat up face and complaining about a headache. I didn't expect someone with such sad, tired eyes. But I also know that under normal circumstances, that same face is flawless."

"This story is dark, intelligent, and entirely gripping." ~ Horrorgirldonna

"Has everything a girl could ever ask for in a book." ~ Amazon Review

"An emotional ride." ~ Goodreads Review

HOUSE OF GUARDIANS

When 17-year-old Laurel Harper decides to go live with her estranged father and stepfamily, she's unaware of the fact that her fate was already sealed the day she was born. She is now exactly where some higher power wants her to be. But it's not until she meets the proud and mysterious Sam Laurens that she feels something strange is going on. Why does he keep interfering in her life? Then Laurel finds out about Sam's ominous ancestry and a whole different fear arises. Fear of who Sam really is. Fear of her own feelings. And when she learns the dark truth about her own future, a sinister secret that will change everything as soon as she turns nineteen, she wants to run and hide, but soon realizes that there is no hiding from fate. Sam may be the only one who can help her escape her destiny, but then she has to start trusting him again, and time is of the essence because he has his own fate to deal with. Still, Sam is determined to stop Laurel from meeting her doom, even if that means he has to make a drastic move that will separate them for good.

*Author's note: Although some reviews speak of book 1 as a young adult novel, the trilogy is not intended as YA. Readers should know it contains violence, strong language, and graphic sexual content. Book 1 and 2 end on a cliffhanger.

QUOTES

"She thinks we're a bunch of overconfident aristocrats descended from an ancient royal family led by a group of powerful men." Sampson

"The threat in those words doesn't escape me. I had kind of expected that he wouldn't pull me against him and kiss me senseless, but I hadn't expected having to leave this soon either. Hesitantly, I take one step closer and place the cake box on the porch before I turn around and walk away. This is starting to get old." Laurel

"I never seem to be able to call my mother by anything other than her first name. It probably has something to do with my Spartan upbringing. I don't remember her ever comforting me when she left me behind crying on Olympus. And yet I respect her, because I know very well that raising me has been no easy task." Sampson

"You won't hurt me, Sam. You hurt people who hurt me." Laurel

"I toss aside the towel and saunter into the bedroom. Despite the hard water pressure of the shower and the stretching, my body is still tight, and my muscles feel cramped. I could use a massage, but there is no time left to work out the kinks. I squat and search for a pair of boxers in my bag. Then I unzip one of the garment bags hanging on the closet door, take out a dark, custom-made suit, and put on a white dress shirt. I button up and loop a tie around my neck. As I push a cufflink through the hole of the sleeve, Laurel gets into my head. Laurel, who had driven me to the brink of madness by taking the cufflinks off. I can still smell the tempting scent of her skin, still feel her fingertips carefully exploring my abdomen. I feel myself getting hard when I think of the sensuous way she touched me. I can almost taste her. I almost did taste her." Sampson

"This is me, Laurel. Complicated. No relationships, no expectations, no promises." Sampson

Lost Lore: A Fantasy Anthology

Kindle eBooks #1 Bestseller in three categories:

-Anthologies & Short Stories

-Mythology

-Fairy Tales

Forward by Mark Lawrence, bestselling author of Prince of Thorns and Red Sister.

Hidden pasts. Secrets untold. Legends half-remembered. Fifteen fantasy writers gather to bring fifteen tales to life, each one a unique glimpse into a wholly original world.

On the Emerald Road, a dead Sage triggers a brutal trial beneath the forest floor. There, a young man must fight--and kill--both friends and enemies to become the next wielder of the fabled Emerald Blade.

In Midgard, a priestess of humble birth forges a strange bond with an ancient being as she searches for justice in a land that often rewards cruelty, betrayal, and bloodshed.

And in the Yarnsworld, the Magpie King teaches two brothers a dangerous lesson about the power of stories. Sticks and stones may indeed break bones . . . but they cannot hurt the Bramble Man.

In worlds ravaged by flood, fire, and frost, mere mortals strive to make their own legends amidst demons and deities alike. And in lands racked with human strife--where evil endures and no one is ever safe--scarred heroes fight forces even darker than their own personal demons.

Why do they fight?

Some seek to better the world, or themselves. Others are out to right old wrongs. But whatever their goal - reward, redemption, or just respite - the truth will out eventually. For no story is ever truly lost so long as there exists one to tell it.

The Vanishing Hitchhiker

"I still remember the day as though it just happened today," said Bill Withers.

"I was traveling down Old Hatchet Trail road after midnight when this beautiful woman with golden long blonde hair was standing all alone on the side of the road. It was starting to rain and I just couldn't leave her there in the black of night. I just couldn't, so I stopped my car beside her and rolled down the front passenger window and said "Please get in out of the rain and I'll take you home."

The beautiful woman stepped inside his car and Bill was happy to help her out, but this woman he was giving a ride too wouldn't be around long enough for him to give her much comfort.
