Welcome Elizabeth A. Lance and her new novel!

Order Now!

Description I was all ready for my school trip to Paris, and then Faerie decided to gift me some weapons.

My name is Rose Fergus, daughter of Max and Anna Lissa Fergus, Jaguar Shifter and Fae Princess. Granted, I wasn’t in line for the throne, but I still carried royal Fae blood.

All I ever wanted was to fight on the side of the Light like my parents, and my family. I was excited when Faerie gifted me those weapons. I just never thought I’d have to use them so soon!

When I reached Paris, which was a mess by the way, thanks to Charbonneau, the half-Drow President they elected, I was so excited. And then I met my mate.

I wasn’t prepared.

At all.

Because my mate, was the hottest guy on the planet. Just ask any teenage girl because they probably had his picture taped to their walls. Of course, it wasn’t Raphael’s fault he was the great-grandson of Aphrodite and Adonis.

How was I supposed to deal with dating a supermodel, while he’s mobbed by adoring fans and paparazzi, fight Unseelie, and keep my very Human class from discovering my secrets?

Join Rose and Raphael as they fall in love, discover secrets, and save France from a Drow Elf take-over!

Excerpt:

He leaned down and kissed me, making my head spin. I took a deep breath, cursing because now I had a nose full of his scent, a scent that drove me crazy. Shaking my head, I looked up at him and through gritted teeth, I said, “Later. We’ll talk later.”

He grinned again, and then escorted me back to Ethan. “Sorry for disturbing your dinner. I’ll see you later, mon amour.” He kissed my cheek, nodded at Ethan, and then started back to his table.

“That—” Ethan blinked and his gazed followed Raphael back to his seat. “That’s Raphael Adonis Beauchêne!” he hissed at me, leaning forward across the table.

“I know.”

“He called you ‘his love’!” he whispered.

“I know.” I sighed.

“He’s the most eligible bachelor in Paris!”

“That I didn’t know,” I replied, picking up my glass of water. “Did you order for us? I’m starving.”

“Yes, but…” He eyed me. “Okay. You cannot just disappear with a guy like that and come back here with him calling you his love and not tell me what’s going on!”

“Can’t I?”

“Rose!”

“Ugh. Fine. So yeah, we’re… dating,” I lied. Well, okay it wasn’t a lie, but I couldn’t very well tell him about shifters and mates and Fae and all the other stuff that Humans were unaware of. “We met last time he was in the States, and I was at my uncle’s in New York. It’s been a long distance thing, weekends when we can get them… but it’s been this big secret. His fans would flip out if they knew he was exclusive with anyone. So, we’ve been keeping it under-wraps.”

“Oh my God! That is so romantic!” He grinned and then his eyes went wide. “Oh! That’s why you freaked at the Arc de Triomphe! He was there and you weren’t expecting to see him!”

I nodded. “Yep, you… you got me. That’s exactly what happened.”

“Oh God, and now you have to sit here with me when he’s right there,” he gasped. “Oh, that sucks. I’m sorry, Rose.”   

I giggled. “It’s okay, Ethan.”

“Oh! Did he think?” His eyes were wide again. “Did he think we were on a date?”

“He did, but I explained.”

He nodded. “No wonder he looked like he wanted to murder me.”

Cover Reveal & Re-release

Exciting news! My Claimed series is getting new covers and the stories refreshed. I’ve also got Narrators lined up to turn these novels into audiobooks!

Claimed New Cover
The pleasure Renee got whenever she sank her trowel into a new patch of ground was almost better than a free ice cream sundae with extra chocolate fudge and rainbow sprinkles on top. Only thing that would’ve topped that was if her new boss, Damon Cubin, had taken her somewhere private and kissed her until she forgot all her inhibitions.
But that was a far-fetched fantasy. Why would handsome, intelligent Damon want her in any capacity other than professional? He’d shown how much he was into her by ignoring her half the night after she thought they’d had a connection, then picked up a random woman he met at the bar and bringing her here with everyone.

Now Renee was faced with reality and if she didn’t get her shit together, her dream job was on the line. The only drawback to this perfect job was Damon’s female proclivity, which didn’t involve Renee and his autocratic rules.

Renee scooped out another bucket load from the archeological site and wiped her brow. Damon’s extensive knowledge of ancient Phrygian culture, almost as if he’d experienced it firsthand, drew her to him. Didn’t hurt that he was gorgeous as sin. Not to mention, he was the first archeologist to give her a chance as an assistant; for every other excavation, she amounted to nothing more than a volunteer. This was her chance to work with someone who valued her skills. Further her career and she could go full-time instead of cramming her passion into three short summer months when she wasn’t teaching.
She exhaled, air trickling through her parted lips until her lungs screamed. The breathing exercise did little to take her mind off Damon. Let it go, Renee, he’s not interested.

Sifting through dust and rock was what she craved—the careful, almost artful search to discover a piece of lost history. The tan-colored tent several yards away mocked her, and she gritted her teeth. For God’s sake, she was in Turkey, her dream spot to excavate religious artifacts, not get upset that Damon had brought his girlfriend with him. What did Renee think? That he was going to be some celibate hunk who would see her and fall instantly in love? She snorted. Dream on, princess.

Days earlier, when he met her and the rest of the team at the airport, he offered them a meal and drinks. His easy-going nature and archeological knowledge enamored her. Not only was he living her dream, but the few pictures she’d scoured online didn’t do him justice. She had to admit, she’d fallen for him, giving into mild fantasies about him.
Intelligence radiated in his blue eyes, and Renee swore they peered into her soul. That was until the blond bombshell in a size two dress flounced over to him. Then he showed his true colors by sleeping with the woman. Never mind that Renee would’ve jumped his bones if he’d asked.

That was until she realized what a hard to please boss he was.
Did he hire Renee for the summer because few could tolerate his arrogance and demands? Demands such as he must be the one to strike ground first and they had to provide daily reports rather than the standard semi-weekly. She kept reminding herself: this was for her own future. Didn’t matter Damon’s morals or that he was now doing god knew what in his tent with a woman he just met.

Renee swallowed down the lump of emotions in her throat. And up until that moment at the bar, she’d thought she and Damon had a chemistry between them. Concentrate on the dig, not on a guy. She didn’t need a man.

Fallen New CoverSuccubus Adeline has lost her powers. The crystal that all her kind crave has attached itself to her and rendered her powerless. Unless she finds a way to remove it, she’ll transform into a human–a fate worse than death.

Jack is running from vamps and weres. They want his hidden doppelgänger talents to locate a stone that enables weres to transform at will, but he just wants to be left alone. Now he has a bounty hunter after him.

Adeline is determined to get the bounty on Jack so she can pay for the answer to remove the bracelet. She soon discovers his secret. The tables are turned on the succubus, and she finds herself the one who is at the mercy of desire.

In a race against time, vampires, and weres, Adeline and Jack travel from Boston to Greece to New Orleans to stay ahead of the hunters.

When Jack confronts a dangerous voodoo queen alone, Adeline learns that love is sacrifice. But will they both survive the lesson?

Movie Review: Dora and the Lost City of Gold

Movie Review: Dora and the Lost City of Gold

Dora and the Lost City of Gold poster.jpgDora and the Lost City of Gold is a live-action of the Dora the Explorer Cartoon adaptation. The story opens with Dora and her cousin Deigo playing when she is six. However, he and his family are moving from South America to California.

Ten years later, Dora gets sent to his school and doesn’t fit in since she’s been in the jungle and homeschooled her whole life. Deigo struggles to support her when doing so could get him ostracized.

When Dora, Deigo and two of their classmates get kidnapped and told they must find her parents and get them to take the mercenaries and treasure hunters to Parapata – the adventures begin anew.

I really liked this movie and thought the actress Isabela Moner as Dora carried the entire movie. Also liked the salute they often did to the cartoon shows.

Two things I didn’t like were the ‘naked’ cartoon scene with Eugenio Derbez as Alejandro Gutierrez. I felt like it wasn’t necessary and they could’ve just kept him in his underwear. They didn’t show anything, except a butt, but the implications were crude in my opinion. I also didn’t like the ending with the gold statue in Dora’s parent’s possession without any explanation of why they had it when they state they aren’t there for the gold or are treasure hunters, but are only explorers and there for the adventure.

Overall, a cute movie.

 

My rating: 4.2 / 5 stars

Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal, historical and romantic suspense.

Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.

Movie Review: I Feel Pretty

Movie Review: I Feel Pretty

I Feel Pretty.pngI Feel Pretty stars Amy Schumer, Michelle Williams, Emily Ratajkowski, Rory Scovel, Aidy Bryant, Busy Philipps, Tom Hopper, Naomi Campbell, and Lauren Hutton. It is a Romantic Comedy about a woman (Renee) who doesn’t have any confidence and is looking for a miracle.

When she hits her head, she thinks the impossible has happened and she’s been transformed.

This was a well-written script and I found myself enjoying all the shenninagians she went through. I also loved that when she thought she had become pretty, the reflection and everyone showed her as she is, rather than some model.

For once, I didn’t feel the need to fast forward parts, like I’ve done with other movies. This one was enjoyable with a great message for girls and women (though it is not for kids are there are some nude and adult scenes).

However, I did feel like this movie could’ve had a bit more of Renee’s descent into the dark night of the soul and her redemption.

 

My rating: 4.7 / 5 stars
