Crystal Tide, second book in the new Tides of Atlantis series is now up for preorder! Release date - July 27, 2018 on Amazon . Join the forming crew of Poseidon’s defenders against the Underworld in book two of Amanda V. Shane’s Tides of Atlantis series!
Desires and Passion are brewing in the Tides - as unexpected as a hurricane and as old as an ancient land.
“That’s the funny thing about will…sometimes your own bumps up against that of another’s.” ~Xieran Amphere, Crystal Tide
Devastated by the loss of both parents and running scared after a break-in at her home, Kay Laurens jumps on the first plane out of Denver heading south to Miami. There she meets up with, of all people, a love psychic for answers. On the tip of the Bermuda Triangle, she is swept up into the dark world of an ancient cult and sent on the ride of her life. Then her incense induced visions come to life in the form of an inter-world travelling, suspicious and sinfully hot immortal agent for Mt. Olympus.
Xieran has no memory of who he was before being stolen by Hermes. The Greek god uses him to enter Earth’s sphere under the guise of an affluent art dealer in search of an elusive artifact which, if he can find, will win him his freedom. When his latest mission is brought up short by a female grad student breaking into his complex travel system, he can’t help but be suspicious. It makes no difference that he finds her more and more irresistible with each encounter. With demon outbreaks, nefarious characters working in the Underworld and a power struggle of epic proportions going on, no one can be trusted.
As they are thrown into the Tides together, Kay and Xieran set out on a whirlwind adventure, racing through the streets of Rome, Miami and even Western Australia to chase down the answers that will win them their freedom from the overbearing gods. Will they come to terms with destiny and conquer the evil taking over the Tides, or will they succumb to the passion growing between them?

What could be more summer than a sexy, seafaring, pirate romance? Not much that I can think of and this pairing is sure to quench the thirst of any scurvy knave or romance lover around.

This has got to be one of my favorite bottles with its skulls and crossbones that match right up with Logan's sizzling swashbuckler romance! Give both a try this Wine Wednesday and, as always, happy reading!
(sidenote: the back label on Antidote has the cutest dialogue! )

Drawn into an intricate game where one wrong move means the annihilation of the Seven Planes, Rogan can’t allow himself to be distracted by the soft lips of his captive. Especially since her very existence is a crime. Can Rogan keep his heart from messing up the mission or will he put everything on the line to pursue a life he never realized he wanted?

Hi everyone, sorry I've been gone from the blog for so long (minor technical issues) but I have some fun things for you today and more on the way! Here is the gorgeous cover layout for Crystal Tide by the wonderful Ravenborn Cover Designs and a little tease from the book down below. Enjoy and happy reading!
Teaser for Crystal Tide, Tides of Atlantis
“You can’t keep me locked up,” she said, trying not to squirm.
He finished with his sleeves then dropped his hands to his sides. His stance was so casual it was unnerving. It said that he absolutely could do whatever the hell he wanted. Not answering her, he righted the table by the bed and started to pick up the mess.
“Perhaps, you would like something else,” he said, still talking about the food.
“What I would like is to leave,” she repeated a little louder, “you can’t hide me here forever!”
Faster than she could have imagined, he set down the plate and moved in front of her until he was right up in her face. Kay dropped her head back to look up at him, trying hard not to give any ground. He was like one of those predators you didn’t want to spur into action by running.
“I’m afraid I can Miss Laurens,” his deep voice rumbled. He was so close that she could feel the vibration.
The finality of his words was horrifying. He was right too. Who back home would even realize she was missing? Cindy and Marley maybe…eventually. Anyone else would think she’d just gotten a wild hair and left. Even Esmé didn’t know her well enough to think any different. She hadn't realized how alone she was.
He loomed over her, leaving practically no space between them. His clean spicy scent invaded her nostrils again, making her lightheaded. His eyes were so clear and deep; something in them sparked and she recognized it from her dream. It was desire, just like King Amphere.
“B-but why,” Kay tried again, losing the battle to keep her wits about her, “I promise I’m a nobody – totally inconsequential.
He lowered his head closer, catching her chin on his forefinger.
“I doubt that Miss Laurens,” he pressed his thumb over her lips then rubbed them in a downward motion, “I think, under the right circumstance, you could be very…” his mouth dipped closer to hers, “consequential.”
