BlurbA new dark romance series from the New York Times bestselling author of Twist Me

She fears him from the first moment she sees him.

Yulia Tzakova is no stranger to dangerous men. She grew up with them. She survived them. But when she meets Lucas Kent, she knows the hard ex-soldier may be the most dangerous of them all.

One night—that’s all it should be. A chance to make up for a failed assignment and get information on Kent’s arms dealer boss. When his plane goes down, it should be the end.

Instead, it's just the beginning.

He wants her from the first moment he sees her.

Lucas Kent has always liked leggy blondes, and Yulia Tzakova is as beautiful as they come. The Russian interpreter might’ve tried to seduce his boss, but she ends up in Lucas’s bed—and he has every intention of seeing her there again.

Then his plane goes down, and he learns the truth.

She betrayed him. 

Now she will pay.

NOTE: Capture Me is the first book about Lucas & Yulia and has a cliffhanger-ish ending. It’s a long novella/short novel of approximately 45,000 words (about 200 pages) and is a spin-off from the Twist Me trilogy. It’s not necessary to have read that trilogy to enjoy Capture Me, but the book does contain major spoilers for books 2 and 3 of Twist Me.

Friday Night Date with Micah from Mythology


Hi, guys and welcome to a new blog feature called Friday Night Date! This feature will be hosted once a month on a Friday, here on In My Secret -Book- World were I will be interviewing one of our most loved book boyfriends.

This month, my date is Micah from the Mythology Trilogy by Helen Boswell. I don't usually like nice guys, but there a few of them, and he tops that list. Check out our date below and you'll find yourself falling for him too.

Hello, Micah and welcome to In My Secret –Book- World! I'm so happy to have you here, and I can't wait to get to know you better, though be warned, I ask lots of… let's say unusual, questions. 

Thanks for having me over on your blog! *hands you flowers* 

Describe yourself in five words. 

Demon with a good heart

Tell me one thing about you that I won't find out from just reading the Mythology books. 

I was junior hockey league MVP when I was a kid. Love hockey, but I don’t play much anymore. Hope says she’s glad because it means I’ll probably keep all of my teeth. *eye roll*

What's the first thing that drew you to Hope?

Her self-confidence. She went through a lot when she was younger because she was different, you know? But I could tell when I saw her that first day at school that she doesn’t care what people think about her.

Your life isn't easy, and I know there are some aspects of it you don’t like, so if for one day you could be anything you want, what would it be?

That’s a tough one. I bet you think I’m gonna say I wish I was a normal guy, but I grew up feeling more-or-less normal, until my transformation, so I know what that’s like. I guess I wish I could be a guardian for just one day, so I could know what Hope has to deal with. 

If you were into guys, which male celebrity would you get naughty with?

Ha! You are getting personal, aren’t you? Okay. Make it…Robbie Amell. He’s kinda hot ;)  

What's the one thing a girl can make the mistake of doing that would totally turn you off?

Be mean and petty to someone else. I hate that crap.

What is your most embarrassing moment? 

Probably when my big sister was using my apartment as the “model” to show prospective renters. She never let me know when she came over, and I was butt-naked when a couple of girls from Buffalo State came in to see “the apartment.”

Is there anything you've always wanted to do but haven't done? 

Travel overseas. I’ve never been to Europe. Any recommendations of where I should go first? ☺

What's the worst thing you've ever done to anyone? 

Send an innocent guy to the Underworld. Can’t get any worse than that.

What are you most afraid of?

That the control I have over my darkness will slip again someday. I can’t live with myself if I hurt anyone…again. 

We're close to the end of our date! If you have any question for me, now is the time, Micah, because next we're having a Quickie! 

My question for you is, if you could be any character in any of the Mythology books, who would it be and why? ☺
Hmm, since I really like Hope and I know how much you love her, I'll go with Jonathans love interest. I'd love to be his love. 

Suits or sweats?
Sweats

Cars or bikes? 
Bikes - I assume you mean the motorcycle kind ;) 

Rain or snow? 
Snow

Rap or rock? 
Rock

Football or soccer? 
Football

Blond or brunette? 
Brunette

Dogs or cats? 
Dogs. Unless they bite.

NYC or LA? 
NYC

Thanks again, Micah! I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did! 

Totally. Thanks, Aseel! xoxo

For those of you who haven't met Micah before or read the Mythology book, you can enter the giveaway below to win the first book.

About the Book:
Book one of the Mythology series.

Hope Gentry doesn’t believe in Fate. Born with an unusual power to see the dark memories of those around her, Hope just wants to be a normal teenager. But on the first day of her senior year of high school, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to a transfer student named Micah Condie. At first glance, Micah seems like a boy that most girls would dream about. But when Hope's powers allow her to discover Micah's darkest secret, she quickly becomes entangled in the lives of mythical entities she never dreamed existed. Was this her destiny all along? And will her powers help her survive the evil of the Demon Impiorum? 

Mythology isn’t just for English class anymore.

Helen Boswell loved to get lost in the pages of a story from the time she could sound out the words.

Helen dedicates her time to raising her family of two boys, teaching college students, and of course, writing.

Do you have a book boyfriend you just adore and would like to see featured here? Tweet, comment and write it on Facebook to let me know who you would love to have here next! But that's not all, you can also tell me what you would like to ask him, and I might just do it! All you have to do is use the hashtag #FridayNightDate and I will read your suggestion!

Release Week Blitz: Sweet Temptation by Wendy Higgins




Hi, everyone! Today, a book in one of my all time favourite series is out! With the help of Rockstar Book Tours, we're celebrating the release of this book. Kaidan Rowe is one swoony guy you don't wanna miss, so go guys and buy his book, and I'll guaranty you that you'll be in love before you know it. 

About The Book:

Title: SWEET TEMPTATION
Author: Wendy Higgins
Pub. Date: September 8, 2015
Publisher: HarperTeen
Pages: 485
Format: Paperback, eBook, audiobook


Summary:
Bad boy Kaidan Rowe has never wanted for anything—money, popularity, musical talent…hot girls—but seducing them is part of his duty as a Nephilim, slave to the demon Dukes. As the son of the Duke of Lust, Kaidan has learned his father’s ways, becoming a master of passion, a manipulator of chemistry. Disobeying his father would mean certain death. Thankfully for Kaidan, he’s good at his job. And he enjoys it.

Until he meets Anna Whitt—sweet, smart, feisty, and inexplicably good—the one girl seemingly immune to his charms. The daughter of a guardian angel and a fallen one, she has a certain power over him, one that makes him wish for more than he could ever deserve.

Determined to save all the Neph from their dark lives as the influencers of sin, Anna joins forces with Kaidan to overcome the demons’ oppressive ways. In the light of her affections, Kaidan must undergo his toughest test of all, a battle of the heart.

Sensual and swoon worthy, this companion volume to the acclaimed Sweet Evil series from New York Times bestselling author Wendy Higgins, told from the perspective of the irresistibly sexy and mysterious Kaidan Rowe, gives readers revealing insights into his struggle, his intense connection to Anna, and most of all, the true emotions that drive him.


Author Note:

Sweet Temptation will encompass the entire trilogy in a condensed version, beginning with Kai's life before he met Anna, and taking readers through the epilogue of Sweet Reckoning. Sweet Temptation is a companion novel, not meant to be a stand alone story. It will definitely be a richer experience for those who have read the original trilogy.
