Best of 2015 Blog Hop + Giveaway

best of 2015[1][1] (1)


2015 was a strange year for me–in the midst of a lot of personal upheaval, I didn’t do nearly as much reading as I usually do. Despite that, I still managed to read some amazing books!

My own book Legally Undead was a finalist for the Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense in 2015, so I’m giving away an ebook copy of it, along with an ebook copy of An Officer and a Mermaid by Blaire Edens. Also, be sure to pick up a copy of Glistening Haven by Jill Cooper–it’s free on Amazon!

Check out my Best of 2015 list below, enter to win, and HOP to the other participating blogs!



Best of 2015


When a slave uprising threatens the life of Syreena, the daughter of an eighteenth century plantation owner, a servant uses voodoo to transform her into a mermaid. The spell will be only broken when she returns to the beach where it was cast. After three hundred years of swimming, she’s ready to trade fins for legs. The only problem is she can’t find her way home.

Dylan, a twenty-first century Coast Guard Officer, has sworn off love for the sea. When a wave throws him overboard, Syreena uses her amulet to ward off the sharks and save his life.

With Syreena and Dylan stranded on a remote cay in the Caribbean, Dylan has the know-how to build a raft and navigate but his near-drowning has made him terrified of the water. Syrenna will use every charm she has to convince Dylan to take her home.

Even if it means falling in love. . .



Susan must find her son before the monster inside her becomes the identity she’s always fought.

There’s a lot to be said for the monster inside all of us – but for “people” living inside New Haven 56, this is a literal fact, a dangerous fact.

In a world hell-bent on reconditioning New Haven is the government agency keeping the world on the brink of destruction. The people eating glistenings are barely kept docile and it is a decision each of them makes in the face of physical threats and violence.

Sometimes people like Susan Monroe – with a house and a pool, a Tupperware party, and teeth sharp enough to rip through flesh – the decision is harder than most.

If she can’t find her son, the choice could be made for her. Because nobody is safe when the Glistening awakens.




Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana.

Winter despises her stepmother, and knows Levana won’t approve of her feelings for her childhood friend–the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn’t as weak as Levana believes her to be and she’s been undermining her stepmother’s wishes for years. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that’s been raging for far too long.

Can Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter defeat Levana and find their happily ever afters? Fans will not want to miss this thrilling conclusion to Marissa Meyer’s national bestselling Lunar Chronicles series.





All hell is breaking loose in the edge-of-your-seat follow-up to Havoc and Perdition from New York Times bestselling author Ann Aguirre…

The prison ship Perdition has become a post-battle charnel house with only a handful of Dred’s soldiers still standing and now being hunted by Silence’s trained tongueless assassins. Forging an uneasy alliance with mercenary commander Vost—who is their only chance at escape—the Dread Queen will do whatever it takes to end her life sentence on Perdition and keep the survivors alive long enough to cobble together a transport capable of getting them off station.

If Dred and her crew can win the deadly game of cat and mouse, the payoff is not only life but freedom—a prize sweeter than their wildest dreams. Yet the sadistic Silence would rather destroy Perdition than let a single soul slip from her grasp…



And my own book (because I’m giving it away!):



A reluctant vampire hunter, stalking New York City as only a scorned bride can . . .

Elle Dupree has her life all figured out: first a wedding, then her Ph.D., then swank faculty parties where she’ll serve wine and cheese and introduce people to her husband the lawyer.

But those plans disintegrate when she walks in on a vampire sucking the blood from her fiancé, Greg. Horrified, she screams and runs–not away from the vampire, but toward it, brandishing a wooden letter opener.

As she slams the improvised stake into the vampire’s heart, a team of black-clad men bursts into the apartment. Turning to face them, Elle realizes Greg’s body is gone–and her perfect life falls apart.
