Four Words…


Hey, everyone, Emma Martin here! I’m super excited to take part in the Strength Blog tour. I read this book and developed a little book boyfriend thing with Wallace (Don’t tell Jake–LOL). So, I was really glad when I found out it was Wallace who was going to give my Four Word Interview a try. **swoon**

So, let’s get into this and see what Wallace is all about…But be sure to read all the way to the end, there’s a wicked-cool giveaway!!

Emma Martin: Favorite time of day….

Wallace Blake:  Anytime but eight thirty.

EM: Fondest childhood memory is . . .

WB: Rather not go there.

EM: Describe your friend Rena. . .

WB: Small, stubborn, and feisty.

EM: If granted one wish. . .

WB: I’d end this curse.


Okay, so that last one…I’d end this curse…that really hit home. I used to think my “gifts” were curses, too. I mean, glowing wrists that could ignite at any time if there are Vamps in the near vicinity isn’t really conducive to hanging around people, let alone getting close to them. So I feel your pain, Wallace. Hang in there. I just know things’ll work out for you somehow. And with that little spitfire, Rena…she’ll help you through it!



Strength by Carrie Butler

When college student Rena Collins finds herself nose-to-chest with the campus outcast, she’s stunned. Wallace Blake is everything she’s ever wanted in a man—except he can’t touch her. His uncontrollable strength, a so-called gift from his bloodline, makes every interaction dangerous. And with a secret, supernatural war brewing among his kind, there’s no time to work it out. To keep Wallace in her life, Rena will have to risk a whole lot more than her heart.

I met Jaime Rush when I was at the Romantic Times Convention earlier this year. Sat right next to her at the book signing event. She was the nicest person ever! So, of course, I had to get one of her books to read.

So, this is my Friday Read!

A Perfect Darkness by Jaime Rush:

They live ordinary lives, but they are extraordinary. They are the Offspring, children of a mysterious experiment gone awry—and they are in terrible danger.

A sexy stranger awakens Amy Shane in the dead of night. Lucas Vanderwyck barely has time to whisper a few words before three men burst into her bedroom and drag him away. But what Lucas reveals shatters Amy’s safe little world forever.

Lucas and Amy share a psychic gift—a gift that could put them in mortal danger. And as they share night after night of savage passion, as a shadowy government conspiracy tracks their every move, they will fight to save each other. But only with their powers of second sight can they escape the terror of a perfect darkness.


So far so good. It started out a little slow for my taste–but I know I have an unrealistic view on how fast a book should start out! But the story really grabbed hold of me. Lucas is my favorite character so far.

What are you reading this fantastic Friday??

Let the Hunt begin…

Blending in with her college co-eds proves difficult for vampire Hunter, Emma Martin, considering the mystical tattoo on her wrist glows whenever Vamps are near. And after three months of silence, the glow is back with a vengeance.

Jake Cunningham witnesses Emma, a violet-eyed beauty, using unimaginable powers to fight off a fanged creature. Finally, after two years of searching, he may have found out what he’s become—a Hunter, like Emma.

Thankful for an ally in the fight against the Vamps, Emma finds hope and comfort in Jake’s arms. As she learns more about her new love’s family and its dark heritage, she may be forced not only to hunt them but to sacrifice her life to save Jake’s soul.
