Blog Tour: Sing For Me by Gracie Madison








Sing For Me by Gracie Madison 
Publication date: January 23rd 2015
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal Romance

Synopsis:

Madeline Noel fled war-torn Heaven to hide within the mortal world, but the blessing that could protect her from evil is the holy realm’s forbidden power.

As a talented soprano for the Eden Theatre Company, Madeline hides among prima donnas and tone-deaf flutists. Her perfect voice may entertain audiences, but a careless laugh may shatter glass, and her greatest scream can kill. To control her unrestrained voice, the angels forbid Madeline from embracing the emotions that strengthen her song. Anger. Fear.

Love.

The demon-hunter Damascus vows to defend Madeline from Hell’s relentless evil, but he cannot protect her from her own feelings. Though they deny their dangerous attraction, her guardian becomes her greatest temptation.

Surrendering to desire may awaken the gift suppressed within Madeline’s soul, and neither Heaven nor Hell will allow such absolute power to exist.

Excerpt

     Damascus erupted upon the roof in a pillar of absolute fire—a warrior of unrepentant strength and unforgiving beauty. His broad body etched with muscles and tensed into a stance of pure aggression. He stood taller than the demon. Prouder than the evil. Stronger than the living hate soiling the night.
     The sword materialized between the Realm and the mortal world. His blade coiled with rapturous fire. A confession of righteousness and death. His eyes shared the weapon’s burning rage, and the explosive, molten gold targeted the demon threatening her safety. 
     He said nothing.
     Damascus lunged toward the Handler in a fluid dance of war and victory and conquest. A glowing trail burst from his path and shielded him in a dazzling halo of uncompromised light. It was no wonder the mortals imagined her kind with wings.
     The Handler howled and clawed to hide within the shadows. Damascus’s sword pierced the darkness. The fire-forged blade burned white against the night sky, dripping searing embers of consecrated heat. The sword illuminated the Handler before it struck, but the demon’s wide-eyed terror imploded against the fire in chunks of molten ash.
     And it was done.
     Madeline sighed, but even the barest scrape of sound blurred her vision. Damascus rubbed the ash from the golden armor strapped to his chest. He dismissed his sword without a word. Scowled. 
     Natalie’s screams deafened the night.
     The girl was right to fear. Though the demon spawned into the world vile and ugly, Damascus inspired as much terror in mortals. 
     In Madeline. 
     He lived in regal magnificence, but all the gold of the Realm didn’t hide the holy beast within the warrior. His breast plate etched with the heraldry of the light and the charred ash of his enemies. Golden spaulders protected him from the eternal war with the darkness, but the notches each Hunter carved into the side scarred the metal. Brands of war. He’d earn another after destroying the evil stalking his charge, and the Realm would pretend they saw nothing marring the perfection of his armor.
     But everything about Damascus existed in perfection, and Madeline was the last being in creation allowed to acknowledge it. His powerful jaw, high cheekbones, and golden hair inspired the artwork of the Renaissance, but he belonged in too many paintings of death, ruin, and war.
     The Realm created a beautiful creature for pure destruction. And they created her knowing she could never mourn for him, never fear for him, and never express her true gratitude for his protection.

Excerpt
 
Alec's lip quirked before he shook his head and looked down to the kitchen drawers. “Are you eating and then packing or packing then eating?” Was that a serious question? “Eatin' first... duh,” I replied. Alec blew out an extra amount of air as he smiled. “Sit down then, I'll make you something.” I shook my head. “Thanks for the offer, but I'm just goin' to have some yogurt and fruit.” Alec raised an eyebrow. “Why?” I deadpanned, “I've been talkin' the past week about dietin'.” Did he listen to anything I say? Alec glanced down at my body then back up to my head. “It's working, you look great.” He was so full of it. “Oh, bite me!” I grunted. “I haven't lost any weight yet, you lick arse. Stop lookin' to get some extra points with your silly compliments.” Alec grinned. “I'm not fishin' for points, I was just pointing out that you look great. Even if you lose a little bit of weight you will still look great. What does that tell you?” he asked. I shrugged my shoulders. “That you're a chubby chaser?” Alec laughed. “No, smartass. It means you look great as is. Nothing you do can improve how beautiful you are, Kitten. You're naturally stunning.” I stared at Alec and snorted. “I'm not having sex with you today.” “You say that everyday and guess what? We still have sex everyday... twice yesterday if I recall, three times if you include last night.” “I get it,” I growled. “I have a weakness for your cock. No need to rub it in me face.” “There is always a need to rub my cock in your face.”

Series: Forbidden #3
Author: Melody Anne

Summary
Byron Knight’s world isn’t what most would consider perfect, but he is satisfied with the way his life is going. There are only two people in this world whom he loves — his brothers, Blake and Tyler Knight.

A woman is now threatening the carefully balanced beam the brothers have been holding on to, and her name is McKenzie Beaumont. Before she had entered the life of his brother Blake, no one, male or female, had ever come between the three men, but McKenzie and her twisted business has interfered for the last time in the Knight brothers’ lives, and she is about to feel Byron’s wrath.

McKenzie Beaumont hasn’t always been so closed off, so cold, or what the world sees as cold, but she’s learned the hard way that men are never to be trusted. If she stays ahead of the game, protects the women she employs, then the women — herself included — are the true winners, even if the men think they have all the control.

EXCERPT
CHASE:
     The Las Vegas I know oh-so-well, however, sure isn’t something I’d ever show Kay. She knows my past, most of it, but there’s no need to revisit the pit stops I traveled along the way. If we did, my Vegas tour would be filled with dark alleys, dark apartments, and the darkest of nights. Nights shaded in tones of addiction, sorrow, and despair.
     Would I show beautiful, gentle Kay where I used to score coke, coke that would leave my head feeling like it was exploding? Or would I spin her by the old apartment and show her where Will and I spent many a night alone while Mom was off gambling. Hell, I could take her to the convenience store around the corner from that apartment. I could point out the aisle where I once stole a can of Spam. That can of mystery meat provided a makeshift holiday dinner one year when Mom forgot to come home on Christmas Eve.
     Would I show Kay that shit? Short answer: No.

Excerpt:
 
Someone made a mistake in teaching you life is easy. Cole’s words had hit like well-aimed arrows, and not of the Cupid variety. At least Lissa knew which camp he fell into. The naysayers tended toward one of two options—push Lissa away or pull Lissa close. The pushers openly mocked her “illegitimate” success. The pullers beguiled her in an effort to see how much of that “luck”—or connections or money or opportunity—could rub off on them. Cole was a clear pusher, and frankly, she liked those better. At least they were honest. A hank of hair chose that moment to abandon the clip that couldn’t quite contain her pony tail. Ruler straight despite a healthy dedication to volumizing shampoo, her hair liked to slip from its confines and lay flat against her head in an antagonizing refusal to hold body. She imagined her looks mattered about as much to Cole as couponing did to Donald Trump, but hell, she had nothing to lose and everything to gain. After the disaster in the driveway, she could at least try to make herself presentable. Her trek to the spare bathroom two rooms down took her past Cole’s bedroom door across the hall. His rumpled bed sat in silence. Nothing personal hinted at the room’s inhabitant. A dresser and two night stands held a clock and a box of tissues between them. No pictures or knickknacks, not even a stray piece of clothing or a random shoe littered Cole’s studied order, dimmed by heavy shades that blocked the rising sun from cheering the space. Earthy scents of pine and sandalwood filled her nostrils. Despite his obvious efforts to disappear within the emptiness, the room bore his mark. The hard edges and sanded planks had absorbed his essence without permission.

Art-Crossed Love Synopsis:
Can love be more than a four-letter word? Lissa Blanc is a painter on a mission. She filters the world through a lens of color, line, and form and hides her ambition behind a delicate smirk that lets her critics believe life comes easy. To her, art isn’t what she sees. It’s what she feels. Few know that behind the glitz of a prodigious upbringing, she’s driven to emerge from the shadow of painful memories that insist she’ll never be a renowned talent in her own right. Cole Rathlen is a photographer on the mend. A crippling grief has stifled his once-rising career and compromised his creative instincts. Knowing he can’t stagnate forever, he seeks a twisted absolution in the form of a woman whose paintings give life to the emotions he won’t let himself imagine, let alone feel. When the two partner for a prestigious project that will pull them from the mountains of Colorado to the palaces of India, Lissa quickly realizes that more than diverging ideals hinder their search for success and salvation. Was Cole’s life upended by a tragic but unavoidable choice or something more sinister? While Lissa can’t delve into the mystery but not the man, Cole can’t resist a tenacious soul that refuses to leave him chained. As the truth closes in on a project finally sprouting wings, will Lissa sacrifice her chance at success to set Cole free? Or will Cole shrug the chains of lingering regrets to prove that those who love the most, love again.

Today, Libby writes contemporary romances from the foot of the Rocky Mountains, where she lives with her husband, a bona fide rocket scientist (he stuck with the voltmeters!).
