Resolve & Retribution By Author, Michael Holman!
Ben leads a routine life: Oregon state agency office job, distance running, and avoiding traffic when it’s possible.

Once the sun sets, however, his life takes an extraordinary turn. He is in a relationship with a vampire who has not drawn breath since she was a young noblewoman in Birmingham, England, during the seventeenth century.

Although their love is pure and true, Tabitha has a terrible secret that she cannot bring herself to divulge. As Ben learns the hard way, there are rules for all—humans and vampires alike. He must decide how far he will go to protect his loved ones when an ancient undead adversary of Tabitha’s intensifies an already bloody vampire power struggle.

Will he be able to make it?

This book shows how two people from uncommon backgrounds find each other and defy fate. The lovers’ struggle is not only brought about by their differences but also by the painful past of Tabitha. Her nemesis is fast catching up with her, and sooner, she needs to decide how to best use her cards and snatch the victory. She cannot do it without Ben’s support.

Holamn’s characters are remarkable and his plot is craftily weaved, bringing the readers into a breathtaking journey before a satisfying conclusion.

An Interview With Romance Author, Jenna Galicki!

Where are you from? 

I grew up in the burbs if NYC, but I’ve been living in Long Island for about fifteen years.

Why do you write?
Because I have to!  LOL.  These people in my head want out. They want life and they want their story told.

What inspired you to write your first book?
It was a dream that I couldn’t stop thinking about.  After about two weeks, I made up an elaborate story that stemmed from the dream.  I still haven’t published it yet though.

What genre do you typically write?
I write adult contemporary romance and male romance. 

Do you feel like you have a specific writing style?  
 I like third person and I like POVs from both MCs.   I think it gives the a second layer of depth than a single POV offers.

How long does it usually take you to write a book?
I think six months is realistic goal, but there are a lot of factors, such as time constraints.

What do you do to conquer writer’s block?
I move on and go back to the scene.  You generally know how the story is going to progress but sometimes there is a stumbling block in your way.  Don’t get bogged down on that one tough scene.  It’ll come to you later.

What book are you reading now?
I just finished a short scifi by Ashlyn Forge called The Caterpillers.

What are your current projects?
My current WIP is Between A Rock and A Hard Place (Radical Rock Stars Book Two)  it pick up where The Prince of Punk Rock (Radical Rock Stars Book One) leaves off. And it’s HOT!


Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?  
The most challenging thing is trying to please everyone.

Intact **Book Blast**

(Science Fiction, love story, apocalyptic, alpha males, strong females, Cyborgs, futuristic, F/M & M/M, sexy romance) 

A world on edge...

The “Cyborg” team has kept one eye glued to the unrest inside the A.I. community for some time. Each member understands the ramifications of a revolt. If war is declared, they could find themselves on the opposite side of the law. One tiny detail changes Miles’ stance. Solving the case he’s worked since meeting Alexia could be the deciding factor. Left with no other choice, Miles orders his second in command to move to plan ‘B’—Dr. Kiston Beck.
A woman caught in the middle...
Kiston has stood with the Androids since her teenage years. Her inside knowledge of Cryo-Zone—an all-droid community—could mean the difference between a war lost or won. Convincing her to go against all she believes to be right is another matter. 
Kiston has no idea what the Cybernetics Agency thinks she possesses. There hasn’t been a human alive who cared to hear her opinion in years. The one detail she’s absolutely sure about is that they sent the wrong team member if they hoped to seduce the information from her. 
Cyborg Two is every woman’s dream. His wide shoulders, alpha ways and smoldering glances leave her breathless. Unfortunately, his biggest flaw is one too many for Kiston. He believes she’s crazy. 
But is it too late?
After a botched kidnapping, a concussion and near-death experience, can Miles and his team still convince Kiston to join them, or will their brand of friendship end up destroying the world?

The worst things always happened to Kiston when she was minding her own damn business. She always steered clear of trouble and never intentionally put herself in harm’s way. Nonetheless, it seemed she was always dealing with some form of bullshit. Today was no exception. Clutching her purse to her chest with her tightly bound hands while sandwiched between two burly, combat-ready men, Kiston eyed the man sitting on the loveseat across from her with malice. He ignored her obvious hatred. Fucker.
“I find her reactions odd.”
Kiston had been so intent on killing the man with her death stare, when he spoke it caught her off guard. No one responded. He continued without encouragement.
“Most women would be screaming and crying. She is merely pissed.”
Great. She’d been kidnapped by a fucking genius. Rolling her eyes, she switched her attention to the door behind him, attempting to will someone to find her and ignoring the man’s golden gaze. He wasn’t a droid. In fact, none of the three men in the room moved like a machine, but their eyes glowed, proving they were all—at the very least—sixty-percent computerized. Of course, that tidbit of knowledge didn’t help explain why they’d stolen her from the street. On a normal day, she was better liked by A.I.s than anyone. In the human world, she was considered odd. It seemed today she was an oddity to both sides. Awesome.
“I’m tempted to remove the gag,” the guy to her left said, drawing her attention. He was a blond giant who took up too much space. “It might be fun to hear her describing all the ways she intends to disembowel you … again.”
Inside her head, an evil smile stretched across her face, and she was cackling with maniacal laughter. Oh yeah. She’d earned her gag. The man to her right chuckled. He had a cool-looking cyberpunk mechanical angel tattooed on his forearm. It was almost silver in coloration, and she’d never seen anything like it. When the light hit it at just the right angle, it almost appeared to move across his skin.
“Damn. Why didn’t I have my optical recorder running? The way she got the drop on you.” He broke off with a sharp laugh. No doubt about it. She’d earned the rope tied around her wrists as well.
