Internet Book Fair Blogfest

Hooray for books!!! Today, M.A. Leslie an awesomely cool member of our blogging community is sponsoring the Internet Book Fair Blogfest as a way for we writers to get our books out there and to promote books and authors we love. The idea, as I understand it, is to tell a little bit about our own book, provide a buy link and tell about some other books and writers we love.

Along with my steamy sizzler, Nathan's Angel, I'm featuring two awesomely fantastic books by two of the best writers I know, MPax and Gail M. Baugniet. So here we go... And be sure to check out the other stories and linkage here.

NATHAN'S ANGEL by Melissa Bradley
ISBN 978-1-61124-191-4 (Electronic)

Sometimes the laws of Heaven were meant to be broken…

When his soul mate is stolen from Paradise and reincarnated, Ramiel, angel of death and transformation, defies Celestial Law to find out why. As punishment for his crime, he is banished to Earth in human form without his powers. His only hope lies in recovering the grace he lost in his fall from the Divine Realm…

Nathan, a beta werewolf, knows all too well what it’s like to be vulnerable and at the mercy of unfair people and situations. He is considered weak in the eyes of the alphas of his pack. Ramiel literally falling into his life changes him. Determined to help the sexy angel, he takes charge of the situation and to his surprise, begins to exhibit some rather alpha behavior…

As they search, a white hot, forbidden fire ignites between them, an inferno that sets them ablaze, fusing them body and mind. A passion that makes them question everything they’ve ever known. But when Ramiel’s grace is found, will they have the strength to let each other go?

Alone. Leda is the last living member of the brigade, the sole defender of her world. War took everyone she knew, leaving her in the company of memories and ghosts. Or is it madness?

The siren blares. The enemy is coming. Or is it? The approaching vessel isn't a friendly design, but it answers with the correct code. Leda must figure out whether the arrival is reinforcements or the final assault. In an aging flyer, she ventures out to meet her world's fate, the last stand.




26-year old Pepper Bibeau deals with unresolved personal problems while she plugs away at her job as an insurance investigator for a Wisconsin-based company. She recently resigned her commission with the Army Nurse Corps after a 12-month tour of Vietnam and experiences occasional flashbacks. Also, her son is being raised by her mother's relatives in Hawaii, a decision Pepper doesn't regret but never fully accepts.

Pepper's current investigation takes her to Chicago where she discovers that murder, suicide, and a child's heroin overdose all point to a small drug operation. Many of the people she is counting on for help may be indirectly involved in the case and the more Pepper learns, the more difficult it becomes to sort out who's hiding what.

After someone slams her head against a brick wall, sending her to the hospital, a homicide detective suggests she drop her insurance investigation and leave town. But her friend is dead and a child remains in a coma. Until she exposes those responsible, Pepper is staying.

  24. @Gail Your words mean a lot to me. I love helping to spotlight great writing. :) Thank you so much for your support as well.

  25. Dear Melissa,
    I wrote you but you still ain't calling
    I left my cell, my pager, and my home phone at the bottom
    I sent two letters back in autumn, you must not-a got 'em
    There probably was a problem at the post office or something
    Sometimes I scribble addresses too sloppy when I jot 'em
    but anyways; fuck it, what's been up? Melissa how's your daughter?
    My girlfriend's pregnant, too, I'm bout to be a father
    If I have a daughter, guess what I'ma call her?
    I'ma name her Bonnie
    I read about your Uncle Ronnie, too, I'm sorry
    I had a friend kill himself over some bitch who didn't want him
    I know you probably hear this everyday, but I'm your biggest fan
    I even got the underground shit that you did with Skam
    I got a room full of your posters and your pictures man
    I like the shit you did with Rawkus, too, that shit was phat
    Anyways, I hope you get this Melissa, hit me back,
    just to chat, truly yours, your biggest fan
    This is Stan

    Dear Melissa, you still ain't called or wrote, I hope you have a chance
    I ain't mad - I just think it's FUCKED UP you don't answer fans
    If you didn't wanna talk to me outside your book signing
    you didn't have to, but you coulda signed an autograph for Matthew
    That's my little brother Melissa, he's only six years old
    We waited in the blistering cold for you,
    four hours and you just said, "No."
    That's pretty shitty Melissa- you're like his fucking idol
    He wants to be just like you Melissa, he likes you more than I do I ain't that mad though, I just don't like being lied to
    Remember when we met in Denver - you said if I'd write you
    you would write back - see I'm just like you in a way
    I never knew my father neither;
    he used to always cheat on my mom and beat her
    I can relate to what you're saying in your books
    so when I have a shitty day, I drift away and read 'em
    'Cause I don't really got shit else so that shit helps when I'm depressed
    I even got a tattoo with your name across the chest
    Sometimes I even cut myself to see how much it bleeds
    It's like adrenaline, the pain is such a sudden rush for me
    See everything you say is real, and I respect you 'cause you tell it
    My girlfriend's jealous 'cause I talk about you 24/7
    But she don't know you like I know you Mel, no one does
    She don't know what it was like for people like us growing up
    You gotta call me Mel, I'll be the biggest fan you'll ever lose Sincerely yours, Stan
    -- P.S.
    We should be together, too

    Dear Ms.I'm-Too-Good-To-Call-Or-Write-My-Fans,
    this'll be the last package I ever send your ass
    It's been six months and still no word - I don't deserve it?
    I know you got my last two letters;
    I wrote the addresses on 'em perfect
    So this is my draft I'm sending you, I hope you read it
    I'm in the car right now, I'm doing 90 on the freeway
    Hey Mel, I drank a fifth of vodka, you dare me to drive?
    You know the song by Phil Collins, "In the Air Tonight"
    about that guy who coulda saved that other guy from drowning
    but didn't, then Phil saw it all, then at a show he found him?
    That's kinda how this is, you coulda rescued me from drowning
    Now it's too late - I'm on a 1000 downers now, I'm drowsy
    and all I wanted was a lousy letter or a call
    I hope you know I ripped all of your pictures off the wall
    I love you Mel, we coulda been together, think about it
    You ruined it now, I hope you can't sleep and you dream about it
