As if having a powerful druid and a goddess for parents doesn't suck enough, throwing a vengeful god into the fray certainly doesn't do Aiden any favors. 

Aiden Mercer's summer has been interesting—if by interesting you mean life-threatening and heartbreaking that is. With fall fast approaching, he’s looking for a quiet time in the arms of his boyfriend, Naël, the handsome merman.

Alas, life never quite goes the way you plan it, does it? Unless Aiden finds a way to stop the wicked god Baburaj and his mother, Jhanvi from achieving their devilish goals, pain and destruction will hover over him like a starving vulture.

In the third and final book in the Of Magic & Scales series, the familiar cast of zany but lovable characters is back, and they are bringing reinforcements for what promises to be an epic and sexy ending. Join Aiden, Naël, and their circle of magical friends in their final adventure.

**No magical creatures were harmed in the writing of this book**

This is the third book in the series and they need to be read in order. Aiden’s sibling is still after him. He still learning who his parents really are and what he is capable of. But will he figure it out in time. His sibling has already hurt those close to him. He needs to figure out how to wield his abilities before his brother comes for him again. He won’t be able to do this on his own. He will need his friends and family close to help. This book takes us on another crazy ride with Aiden, Nael, and their friends. I enjoy this series. Aiden changes so much during the series. He goes from a player to a totally committed man. He finds a family he has always been looking for and finds out who is parents are. Natalina does a fantastic job of creating these worlds and characters. I look forward to reading more of her books in the future.

Author of We Will Always Have the Closet, Desert Jewel, and Loved You Always, Natalina wrote her first romance in collaboration with her best friend at the age of 13. Since then she has ventured into other genres, but romance is first and foremost in almost everything she writes.

After earning a degree in tourism and foreign languages, she worked as a tourist guide in her native Portugal for a short time before moving to the United States. She li

ved in three continents and a few islands, and her knack for languages and linguistics led her to a master’s degree in education. She lives in Virginia where she has taught English as a Second Language to elementary school children for more years than she cares to admit.

Natalina doesn’t believe you can have too many books or too much coffee. Art and dance make her happy and she is pretty sure she could survive on lobster and bananas alone. When she is not writing or stressing over lesson plans, she shares her life with her husband and two adult sons.

Release Date: June 21, 2021


BLURB
King University is home to an elite group of siblings.

Kai
One year ago, I made a stupid decision because I thought it was the right thing to do. I’ll never find someone to live up to Ivy Montgomery. All I do is push her away, and I can’t stop breaking her heart. With a last name like Kingston, I’m not meant to settle down with one girl.

Ivy
One year ago, I let a man break me apart. No matter what I do I can’t escape him. He’s everywhere. Can you ever really move on from a love that consumes you? Kai Kingston is known all over campus for breaking hearts, it’s no surprise he broke mine too.

Can two people find a way to stay together when one of them will do anything to try and keep them apart?

EXCERPT
“Hey, didn’t you used to date Kai Kingston?” she asks, eyes wide.

“I am dating Kai Kingston,” I say, a little too defensively.

Did she just say used to? I watch her shift uncomfortably and pull on the hem of her shirt.

“Oh, um, I saw him earlier. I thought he was single again.” She shrugs, voice shaky, throwing her hand up in a wave before disappearing.

Why would she think that?

“I’m gonna take a walk around.” I say, leaning into Amanda.
 
“Okay, come find me when you’re done.” She gives me a thumbs up, apparently her night is going pretty well.

I wander through the thick crowd of people. It’s hot and uncomfortable in here. I’ve never really understood how people enjoy parties like this. It’s never been my thing.

I glance around the room; I haven’t seen Kai anywhere. I know he’s got to be around here somewhere; both of his brothers are here. I decide to head upstairs. Even if I don’t find him anywhere, I can run in the bathroom real quick and then tell Amanda I’m ready to leave.

I open the first door to my left when I get to the top of the stairs. I don’t know where to look or what to do as my pulse quickens, and my eyes fill with tears.

Have you ever felt true and honest heartbreak? The kind that knocks you off your feet and makes you feel like you can’t breathe?

I think I’d rather die than experience the pain I’m feeling right now.

Havoc (The Discord #1) Release Blitz


Title: Havoc
Series: The Discord Series #1
Authors: Cathleen Cole & Frank Jensen
Genre: Dark Mafia Romance
Release Date: June 14, 2021


BLURB
It’s amazing what you’re capable of when you have nothing to lose…

Collateral damage.

That’s what my family was—collateral damage in a mafia war.

They were my whole life. But I’ve found something else to live for.

Vengeance.

I was a wife. A daughter.

Now I’m Havoc.

Every last one of the bastards responsible will die. No one can stop me.

Not even him.

Nico Romano, Don of the Italian mafia, is a complication I don’t need.

He’s too much like the monsters I hunt—savage, ruthless, cold. An enemy. I shouldn’t want him.

But I do.

Falling for him might cost me my shot at revenge and the only thing of value I have left.

My soul.

Too bad I’m starting to think he might be worth it…

Havoc, book one in The Discord Series, is a sexy, dark and angsty, enemies-to-lovers mafia romance featuring a heroine who will stop at nothing to avenge her family, and the brooding, alpha anti-hero who will do anything to keep her…even when it involves kidnapping. Happily ever after guaranteed. Download today, but grab a glass of ice water first. You’re gonna need it.

Be Forewarned***
This is a dark mafia romance. There are mentions of family loss, scenes with explicit violence, and some dub con. This is not a ménage. There is a HEA for this couple, but the overall story arc does continue from book to book.

Havoc
Rafael Santos wasn’t exactly living in the lap of luxury. Pretty soon he wouldn’t be living at all. The smile that crossed my face would have been described as more of a snarl if anyone had been present to see it. But no one was around at eleven p.m. on a Tuesday night. I quickly jogged up the stairs, my work boots making a quiet thunking sound on the concrete as the lights above my head buzzed and flickered.
It gave the whole complex a very horror movie feel, but it was setting the tone for what I was about to do. My stomach churned at the thought. Would I really be able to go through with this? I carefully touched the needle in my pocket that would disable my enemy and even the playing field for me. The heavy bag slung around my shoulder bumped my back with every step, reminding me of what was inside.
Reaching the fifth floor I found apartment five-fifteen and stood outside staring at it quietly. I could turn back. I could turn around, cut the lease on my apartment, go home to Texas, and begin life all over again. This was the beginning. It could be the start of a new life if I took that route. Or it could be the beginning of the end for me.
Sam would take care of my dogs. She’d promised me. Because if I went down this road, I’d take on a cartel. I’d kill at least eight of its members. If they didn’t kill me, it was likely the police would catch me. Then I had to make a choice on whether I wanted to live my life out in prison or commit suicide by cop. There wouldn’t be a third option for me. I would keep going after my family’s killers. I would never give up, so there’d be no running. Eventually, I’d make a mistake and it would mean my death.

Feelings she can’t deny. A bond impossible to ignore.
Haunted by pain of the past, Kami Grayson seeks to make the world a better place by joining the FBI.

Drawn to Kami’s fiery strength, Colin vows to help her escape the clutches of the ruthless pack of shifters closing in. Still, Kami resists the undeniable connection between them.
