For the Love of Mythology Giveaway Hop! #Giveaway



I absolutely love mythology! You might be able to guess what sparked my interest, but the exact event is funny to me. My name is Phaedra. I did not realize that it was Greek in origin until I was in seventh grade. I also had no idea that the name is actually a Greek Goddess. In seventh grade I was beyond excited to find out the origins of my name. You're probably asking, "How did you learn your name was a Greek Goddess?" I heard my name mentioned on Hercules, The Legendary Journeys! i was in love with Kevin Sorbo from that show. One evening they had a Water Nymph on the show named Phaedra. That got me questioning whether my name was really from Greek myth or not. I learned that she was not a nymph in the myths, but she was related to some pretty famous gods/goddesses.

Here is the very basic details from http://www.mythencyclopedia.com:
In Greek mythology, Phaedra was the daughter of King Minos and Queen Pasiphae of Crete and the younger sister of Ariadne. Phaedra married Theseus, king of Athens and slayer of the beast known as the Minotaur. Earlier, Ariadne had helped him kill the Minotaur and escape from Crete.

Theseus had a son named Hippolytus from a previous marriage to an Amazon queen, and after his marriage to Phaedra, they went to see him. Phaedra fell madly in love with Hippolytus, but he was disgusted by her feelings. Rejected, Phaedra killed herself and left a note saying that Hippolytus had raped her. When Theseus found the note, he asked the god Poseidon* to take revenge on Hippolytus. One day as Hippolytus was driving his chariot by the seashore, Poseidon sent a sea monster to frighten Hippolytus's horses. The horses bolted, tangling Hippolytus in the reins and killing him. The Greek playwright Euripides used the story of Phaedra and Hippolytus as the basis for his tragedy Hippolytus.

The one thing not mentioned in this was that after Hippolytus died, Phaedra hung herself. She did this out of grief and regret.

#BookReview: Bound to You by Lola James #PromoBookTours



Bound to You 2
Title: Bound to You
Series: Spellbound Series, Book 3
Author: Lola James
Publisher: LJ Publishing, Inc
Description: Toni’s life is just one complication after another. First, her past comes back to her, then she has to deal with a psycho, and now it’s the biggest of them all. A choice that could destroy one life and be the bright future to the other.

How is a girl supposed to choose between two men that she loves?

On one hand, she has the Greek god Hades, the love from her past and the other, Ben the hot Vampire nurse that she met just over a week ago. Both have captured her heart in their own individual ways but whose love is the greatest?

Who does she ultimately love the most?

In the end, a decision is made in Bound to you...

**This Book Includes Sexual Content**

Review: The third, and I believe, final book in the Spellbound Series will leave you constantly guessing what is going to happen. At the end of the second book, Toni has been turned into a vampire after having Persephone, the wife of the Greek God Hades, try to kill her. Toni was just lucky enough to have had some of Ben's vampire blood in her system at the time of her death which technically saved her life. Perhaps we should really say that the blood has given her a new immortal life. After waking up from her death sleep, she finds herself in the arms of Hades and subsequently with Ben. She is in love with both of these men, but can only be with one of them. She is put in the awkward situation of having to pick between the man she had been spelled to never meet, but had loved for centuries, and the man who made her feel safe and whole in the life she was currently living. This entire story is about Toni trying to make up her mind which man she really wants to be with. Hades lets her run off to the life she is comfortable in while Ben tries to wine and dine her in the so-called life. Who will she choose? To what lengths are Ben and Hades willing to go in order to obtain Toni's love? Will Persephone try to kill Toni once again for being her husband's mistress and preventing her ultimate seat in Olympus? These are the questions you will be constantly asking yourself in this final installment of the Spellbound Series. I will say that I was super surprised with the ending. Parts of Toni's human life come back to haunt her while she is in the process of making her decision.

Once Upon A Midnight Dreary Free Today & Tomorrow!

Once Upon a Midnight Dreary


Once Upon a Midnight Dreary is a collection of seven short stories with a spooky edge.



Carnival of Darkness by Stephanie Nelson (Author of the Gwen Sparks & Anna Avery series)
Andee Baker met the man of her dreams and then made a complete fool out of herself. She thought she would never see him again until her best friend, Claire, got an invitation for both of them to attend the Carnival of Darkness from the guy Andee couldn’t stop thinking about. They jump at the opportunity to go, but even before Andee crosses the entrance, she realizes there's something peculiar about the carnival. The ticket master's red eyes and the waltzing ghost are anything but cheesy special effects. Andee discovers at the Carnival of Darkness not everything is as it seems.

Machado by Lola James (Author of the Spellbound & Fate series)
A weekend of fun, romance, and ghost stories at abeautiful beachside hotel was the plan. But Mackenzie had a bad feeling about the trip since the moment her husband and friends brought it up. The Machado Inn was a place where legends came to life and the past roamed the hallways. Guests came to stay the night, but few made it out alive.

The Visitor by Liz Schulte (Author of the Guardian Trilogy and Dark Corners)
Reverend Black hated storms. Rumbles from the Heavens promised violence and retribution this night, but he could only watch as the blackness descended. The tempest did not come alone. A visitor walked before it—patient and silent. The torrential downpour would wash away the mask, the gales would tear away carefully constructed lies, and the flashes of light would expose the truth—a truth that wouldn’t set him free.

Miss Stake by C.G. Powell (Author of the No Uncertain Logic series)
Alligators, snakes, and old boyfriends...Oh my. The swamp is a dangerous place, but it’s nothing Veronica can’t handle. That is until a weekend in the marshes brings to light a whole new set of dangers. Now that the supernatural cat is out of the bag, Veronica’s life will never be the same.

Dark Road Winding by Olivia Hardin (Author of the Bend-Bite-Shift Trilogy)
Johana Hall has her hands full juggling personal life and her public relations career in Washington DC. The last thing she needs is to get called back to Texas because her Grandpa H.M. believes he’s being haunted. Adult Protective Services wants to put the elderly ex-con in a nursing home, but mysterious happenings at the homestead convince Johana he isn’t as crazy as everyone thinks. Getting to the bottom of the local legend is the least of her worries when she realizes someone is willing to go to any means to get her grandpa off Sara Jane Road. Can she figure things out before it’s too late?

Redeemed by Mandie Stevens
Eva never claimed to be a good guardian angel, but she tries. After losing two charges, the Powers That Be have begun to doubt her abilities. To redeem herself, Eva sets out to rescue Elsie, granddaughter of the former king of the Fae. A Demon has kidnapped Elsie to complete an ancient ritual that will allow them to slip through the veil between Earth and Hell on Halloween.
With unlikely friends in tow—a human liaison, a fallen angel, and a powerful yet distractingly charming vampire—Eva is in a race against time.
Save Elsie, save the world—and her job.

Vicis by Cait Lavender (Author of the Lupine Moon Series)
Raised captive by a powerful corporation named Vicis, life inside the facility was all 56 knew until she met Adam. When she's slated to be euthanized, no longer considered a valuable asset for the company, she takes her life into her own hands. With her considerable abilities and Adam’s help, 56 will fight to free them both from Vicis’ clutches and learn to feel something she's always been denied: Love.

Monday Motif: Interview with Fate's Design author Lola James #FMBTours

Fate's Design 1


Welcome to the Fate's Design tour with Full Moon Bites. I read this book a while ago for another tour group and wrote a review HERE. My review included an interview that is very much about the story itself, so when this tour came up, I decided to ask Lola James some questions that surround her future works (in case you are confused by my interview below). I hope you enjoy it and are intrigued enough to check out all of Lola's works (Unbound, Bound to Remember, Once Upon a Midnight Dreary [collection of short stories by several authors I love], A VILLAIN'S FATE, A Fate Series Short).

Interview with Fate's Design author Lola James:
  1. Where do you see your Fate series going?

    Well without giving much away, some of Megan’s dreams come true and she begins to question those around her.

  2. You recently held a giveaway for a lucky reader to name a character in your next book. What was your motivation behind this giveaway?

    Well I wanted to get my readers involved and have a fun contest while doing it. That contest was for another series, Spellbound.
  3. Has the winner decided which God/Goddess will be featured in your next story?

    She is going to me a new character and she is going to have ties to my favorite character in that book, Dawn. I can’t say more without giving the story away.

  4. Will the chosen God/Goddess actually be based off of the myths or are you basing the character off of the ideas of the winner?

    It’s going to be based of something else. But the next book you will see almost all of the gods and goddess show up at some point.

  5. What other books do you envision in the future? Will you run similar giveaways for those?

    I will have another contest like that for the third book of the Fate series.

Friday (Non)Fiction: Unbound Review

Unbound Picture


Unbound Picture 2
Title: Unbound
Series: Spellbound Series, book 2
Author: Lola James
Publisher: LJ Publishing, Inc.
Desription: Toni went from being a doctor, to the lover of a god in an instant. Remembering who she was, she’s now torn between her past self and her current love. Ben is stunned when Toni leaves and at the arrival of his long lost love, Catherine, but her arrival doesn’t eradicate Toni from his mind. Unlikely allies will team up to get Toni back from the Lord of the Underworld, Hades, but it’s not Hades they need to worry about.

**This Book Includes Sexual Content**

Review: I enjoyed this book more than the first one, Bound to Remember. I read it in less than two days because I couldn't put it down. Lola James has brought a very unique personality to several Greek mythological gods, that I just found refreshing.

Bound to Remember ended with Toni having a spell removed from her that made her change appearance and personality. She almost seemed to have two warring personalities trapped in one body. It appears that over the many lifetimes that Toni has lived, her most recent one is actually hanging on even after she has been freed from the blessing (or perhaps curse) of immortality. Her so-called friend and witch Annie, has an even bigger role in this book than the first book. She brings all the key players together and let's just say it's not going to end well for some of them. The part that surprises everyone though is how in love with Hades Toni really is. However, Toni's life as a doctor has her confused by being in love with Ben too.

It's not a very long book, so I don't want to give away too much of the plot. You will read about a handful of gods and be surprised by their personalities. You will also be thrilled and shocked by the ending. Lola James is the queen of cliffhangers. I want more!

Interview with the author, Lola James:
  1. During any of her lifetimes, did Toni love Kevin? Did they ever have kids and if so, what happened to them?
    Yes, Toni did love Kevin. In Unbound I think (I can’t remember right now) but he told her that they had lived all over and that they were married countless times. She loved him before the spell but it was platonic love.  As for children, no they didn’t have any… the spell froze her in time so she couldn’t have any! 

  2. Has Annie ever been loved by anyone? What happened to her parents?
    Annie never involved herself with anyone to be loved. She only met Toni by chance in college and it turned into a best friend relationship, to her… Her parents were like gypsies so they never settled and because of that Annie lost touch with them…

  3. Will ever learn more about Ben's history?
    Yes, I plan to write his back story… one day! LOL He has a very interesting story! 

  4. The beginning of the story sounds like Toni has two warring personalities even though it sounds like one is in control most of the time. Will she end up with multiple personalities or some type of permanent damage from the immortality spell?
    She did! She was fighting her “Dr. Toni” self to become her “Antonia” self and eventually they combined. Antonia is selfish and “Toni” is more caring so there is a conflict. No she won’t have any long term effects but you can see the difference in her when she is around Ben. 

  5. Will Dawn play a major part in the future?
    Dawn is going to get her own book! I love her and she is my favorite character… plus she has a budding romance brewing! 

  6. Care to share something about what you are currently working on?
    What am I not working on…? I am writing the second book in the Fate series called Defying Fate. I have also started the third book in the Spellbound series called Bound to You (that is an exclusive). I just finished a short for an anthology that I am in and lastly I have a Contemporary Romance coming out too!

Thursday Climax: Bound to Remember Review

Bound to Remember Picture
Title: Bound to Remember
Series: Spellbound Series, Book 1
Author: Lola James
Publisher: Lola James
Desription: Vampires and Witches and Myths, oh my!

Toni is a young doctor with a past she can't remember and a deadly reason for forgetting it.

Ben is a nurse who has his own tragic past and transfers hospitals after an act of heroism forces his secluded life public.

Ben can’t believe his eyes when he meets Toni, she has an uncanny resemblance to an old friend of his, and Toni can’t help but find Ben irresistible.

Enter Kevin, Toni’s sexy but arrogant Ex. Kevin’s jealousy of Ben blinds him from his main objective, Toni.

A dangerous secret is revealed and a magic spell seems to be a quick remedy, but the witch that helps has a little more than magic up her sleeve…

Review: This is a very quick read with it's primary focus on vampires and witches. The main character, Toni, appears to be a human who is a doctor. She is paired early on with a new nurse in the ER and asked to teach him the ropes. Benjamin, also called Nurse Hero, is obviously interested in Toni and has an air of mystery surrounded him. However, he makes a mistake and asks Toni to stay the night at his house. If you have read anything about vampires, you will recognize him as a vampire pretty quickly, but it is neat to read how Toni reacts to the discovery.

After her discovery, you meet Toni's best friend from college, Annie. Annie is a witch and you will find out that her powers are quite extensive. I have a feeling she is going to play a pretty major role in books to come. She casts a spell on Benjamin to allow him to walk in the daylight. Yeah she's that kind of witch.

I have to say that I really enjoyed this book. It ends with a cliffhanger that will leave you wanting to get the sequel Unbound. The story line is far from complete in this book, but Lola James loves to leave you wanting more.

Wordy Wednesday: Fate's Design Book Tour

Fate's Design Picture

Fate's Design Picture
Title: Fate's Design
Series: Fate Series - Book One
Author: Lola James
Publisher:
Desription: A summer vacation in Italy with her twin sister, Morgan, is just what Megan Romano needs. But instead of fun, wine, and relaxation, she finds unexpected romance. Alexandros DiPiero, a sexy and mysterious Italian businessman, falls for Megan the minute he lays eyes on her, but Megan knows it’s too good to be true.

Increasingly haunting dreams that warn of danger and destiny plague Megan’s every sleeping moment. As her nightmares become deadly and her love life heats up, Megan will come face to face with her worst fear.

Review: I could not put this book down for the two days. The description does not indicate to you that there are supernatural beings in the story, but rather that there are supernatural events. I was pleased to discover that you actually encounter the supernatural in it, since I love supernatural. Megan is not an ordinary girl, but she is the ordinary twin. Her sister is the one everyone pays attention to. Flamboyant, girly, and outgoing, that's Morgan. Megan kind of lives in her shadow and is the tag along twin. That's ok for the most part for both of them except that Megan hasn't really fallen in love and her sister falls in and out of love too quickly. Unfortunately, Morgan gets around a little more than she should and that will lead to some interesting situations and to Megan's destiny as well. This book is focused primarily on that, Destiny or Fate. Lola James takes the attitude in this story that everyone has a predetermined fate. If you know your fate, you can change it with minor incidences, but primarily you are stuck. This is where Alexandros comes in. He is messing with Fate the entire story. He knows some of Megan's fate but actually confuses her with Morgan in the start of the story which is one of those minor incidents that just may change Megan's destiny.

There is something of a love triangle...or even a quadrilateral at one time. Ordinary Megan becomes a hot commodity and attracts the attention of two men at first and third for an ever brief moment in time. Megan's dreams, which we learn are more like visions, show her with a gorgeous hunk of a man, but she can't figure out which one. Her dreams shift between the two men she is so completely attracted to, only to find out that a witch has actually been tampering with her dreams. She really has no clue which of her dreams were true visions or someone else's ideas put into her head. This leaves her confused about which man she is really supposed to end up with and if she is messing up her own fate by choosing one or the other. She is told at one point that trying to avoid or change your fate purposely will only lead to disaster and put her right back on course for what was being avoided. A lesson a friend learned the hard way. With the knowledge that some of her visions were real and others figments of another's imagination, she ends the story picking one man and wondering what her future really holds.

Interview with the author, Lola James:
  1. Will we find out anything interesting about Megan's father in the next book? It seems that since Megan is a guardian (as well as her sister), that their father must have been something unique.

    Yes, you will find out more about the twins father in book two. I don’t want to give too much away but he was pretty special.
  2. Since we found out that Galena was probably messing with Megan's visions, will we figure out which visions were real and which weren't?

    At the end of the book, there was a clue about that when Megan asked Alex a similar question. Book 2, will explain more about her visions, and give a direction as to what she will expect along with the reader.
  3. If I remember correctly, the first vision Megan had about a tall handsome stranger, she never really saw his face. Will we find out if the true person she was fated to be with is really Alex?

    Yes, it was hinted at as well but she is trying to defy fate somewhat. The title of book two is Defying Fate if that gives any clue!
  4. I feel like Galena was probably putting Emilian into Megan's head in order to dissuade her from continuing her relationship with Alex. Why would she pick Emilian to be the subject of Megan's "fate" when it appears that she is helping Emilian's sister on the side of evil?

    Galena is a special piece of work. LOL She is working on the side of evil but her reasons; well she is in it for something. She wants’ for nothing so it has to be sentimental. I am tightlipped about book two if you haven’t realized.
  5. Is the next story going to be a conclusion or are there several stories being planned out for the series? I am trying to see how many books I need to read to find out how Megan's fate really turns out. ;)

    Well, I have planned four books but it may end up being five. The next two books are destined to give a lot of information on Megan’s love life as well as Giovanni’s!
  6. Care to give us a peak at the next book?

    Book 2 picks up where book one left off and the big show down that everyone awaits for... And the reads get to see Megan and Alex’s romance bloom! That’s all I’ll say!
