Synopsis:

Their paths were Chosen.

Nellie Glazer, a rare shapeshifter banned from the human realm, 

does not know true fear until she finds herself standing in the 

middle of the clan she was once forced out of. Demands for her 

death multiply, and Nellie must come to terms with more than 

one ghost from her past, each of which has the power to undo 

her.

The Fates are watching.

Faria Agostonna, Queen of Anestra, has been forced to 

abandon one realm in favor of another to find her stolen child. 

But as she is thrown into the human realm without access to her 

magic, she soon discovers the danger she left behind is nothing 

in comparison to what awaits her. Now, Faria must press 

through the fog of her grief and choose her course wisely, for 

each path set before her will drastically change the fate of the 

people she left behind.

Destiny is calling.

Hunter d’Valero, Val Prince and Protector of the Agostonna 

Royal Bloodline, narrowly survives a deadly attack before he 

discovers he is bound to Anestra, unable to save those he loves 

most. As control over his inner darkness slips, he must fight to 

master it before the fatal consequences are more than Anestra 

can handle. 

The stakes are higher. 

The odds are impossible. 

Will they survive, or are they fated to burn?

Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

Hunt the shadow. Guard the flame.

 

Noor is the new Aten of Helios, having wrenched the kingdom of the sun from her treacherous father’s hands. Citali stood with her sister against him, and rejoiced when he died at Noor’s hand… But he did not go quietly.

 

He poisoned the thoughts of their older sister, Zarina, who believes that Noor is not who she claims and was never supposed to be Aten. As Zarina flees the temple to determine her next step, she encounters, then attacks, Citali.

 

Beaten and left for dead, Citali’s cries are heard by the Wolven of Lumina. In a flurry of fur and fang, Beron rushes to her aid yet fears he arrived too late. With what would have been her dying breath, Citali whispers a secret that changes everything.

 

Pleading to Lumos – the god of the moon – for a way to save her, Beron is provided an answer that comes at a steep price. Citali will become Wolven. The two bonded together for a lifetime. Despite their tumultuous past, Beron helps hone her new strength and senses, a primal passion now surging through her veins. But can the two stop fighting one another and work together to hunt and destroy the darkness spreading over the sands like a plague of locusts? Or will the sands of time run out for them both?





Casey Bond lives on a rural farm in West Virginia with her husband and their two beautiful daughters. She writes phoenixes – gloriously flawed and morally gray characters that fiercely rise from the ashes of their circumstances. World building is one of her favorite hobbies, along with stamping metal jewelry, swimming, and enjoying the beauty of nature. She thinks thunderstorms are better than coffee and that watching a meteor shower is the closest thing to magic you might ever see. She’s a firm believer that every amazing book needs a world you want to wrap yourself in, a character you want to win, and a love you would fight for.

 

Casey is the award-winning author of When Wishes Bleed, Gravebriar, and House of Eclipses.

The Winning Ingredient Book Tour


     

BOOK INFORMATION

The Winning Ingredient by Kelly Swan Taylor
Published by Link Press
Releasing on September 22, 2021
Genre: Contemporary


As the past and the present collide, one baker and one quarterback team up.

The two might be the winning ingredient in a timeless recipe.

Mia DeSalvo is one tough cookie, who can throw a perfect spiral and bake a perfect biscotti. But, as George Washington High’s top student and ninth-grade class president, she’s thrown off her game when asked to tutor boarding school drop-out and secret-weapon-on-the-football-field, Bryce Fitzgerald. Despite his to-die-for dimples, he’s a total bore. Besides, her plate is already full, trying to save her family’s struggling century-old Italian bakery.

Determined to tackle her family’s business woes, Mia secretly devotes her free time to developing new recipes, with the help of her Sicilian great-great-grandmother’s handwritten cookbook. She soon discovers that blending her own innovations with her Nonna Antoinette’s history may be the key to the bakery’s success.

But Mia’s not the only one with a secret. As rumors swirl around Bryce’s lightning-speed exit from prestigious Chadwick Academy, she’s resolved to get to the bottom of it. Unfortunately, the star quarterback’s bad attitude, mixed with her flaming temper, is a recipe for disaster.

When Mia stumbles upon Bryce’s beautifully written journal, it’s clear his talents aren’t confined to the football field, and there’s much more to the hazel-eyed quarterback than she could’ve imagined. While the journal may hold all the answers she’s looking for, the weight of its heartbreaking words may be too much for her to carry.

With the future of the DeSalvo Bakery and the football State Championship hanging in the balance, Mia and Bryce might just have what the other is missing.

Armed with an antique cookbook and a football, this unlikely pair will discover the importance of embracing an enduring legacy and keeping cherished memories alive.

The Winning Ingredient is a lower young adult novel about unwavering friendship through loss and triumph and is the debut novel for this previously published author.

Review:

When I first read the synopsis of this book I thought this has all the makings of a teenage Hallmark story! While there's some Hallmark vibes this story is has its own uniqueness. The author brings two unlikely people together who while discovering each other's struggles also find an unexpected friendship that encompasses their community. The ending was perfect!
