 Danielle Steel tears down the walls of power at the heart of the White House in the thrilling Dangerous Games.

Television correspondent Alix Phillips dodges bullets and breaks rules to bring the most important news to the world. With her daughter in college, and working alongside cameraman Ben Chapman, an ex-Navy Seal, Alix exhilarates in the risks and whirlwind pace of her work. But her latest assignment puts her at the center of an explosive story that will reshape many lives, including her own: investigating damning allegations involving the vice president of the United States, Tony Clark.

Alix starts with a nationally revered woman who may be the key to exposing frightening secrets.

As the stakes rise in this dangerous game, Alix needs Ben’s help as never before. Soon they realize they are grappling with an adversary far more sinister than they had imagined . . .

COVER REVEAL + SYNOPSIS of Crushed 

So, here I am, back with another cover reveal. This time it is –

Book one in the CRUSHED series – Crushed by ELISA DANE.

Interesting fact : Crushed was previously published as Ex Factor before the author got her rights back.

Synopsis : 

Nevaeh Evan’s life is uprooted after her father’s death, when she moves in with her aunt and cousin, Livvie. Her plan to lay low at her new high school isn’t working. Her friend’s jerky boyfriend keeps asking her out, the guy she likes treats her like garbage, and the thought of tumbling again makes her want to hurl. 

So when her aunt pushes her into joining the elite X-FACTOR cheer leading squad, Navaeh goes along with it. 

But Nev feels she doesn’t deserve to be happy. Not after what happened the night her father died. 

Bodie Scott knows about grief all too well. Critically injured in an alcohol related accident the year before, Bodie struggles with the fact that he’ll never play football again, and he’s so far behind in credits he can’t see straight. That is, until he meets Nev. Haunted by their bloody pasts and wary of a shared future, Nev and Bodie turn to one another for comfort and support, and realize they’re not so alone after all. And when the party scene at school threatens the life of a loved one, the two stop at nothing to keep the past from repeating itself.

COVER REVEAL + SYNOPSIS ( The Harbinger : The Fray Theory book two)

EXCITING NEWS:

The next book of The Fray Theory series is soon to be published. The first book is Resonance, whose review along with I have posted if you might want to check. Thanks to the author for allowing to let me do the cover reveal and share with all the synopsis of the book – THE HARBINGER.

theharbinger-thefraytheory1.1.jpg

SYNOPSIS:

Cages come in all shapes and sizes. Some have walls close enough to touch. Some are made of bars, with a distant view of freedom. Many are made of the promises we make to others, and nearly all are fortified by our fears.

But not every cage has a way out.

Dylan Sterling is an anomaly. He dreams of things before they happen. But over the years, this phenomenon has transformed from a gift into a curse. Because when Dylan wakes from a nightmare, the agony of torture clings to his skin. The echo of his screams keeps ringing in his ears. The terror of his own gruesome death keeps rattling his bones.

With each passing day, the boundaries between dream and reality are becoming more and more muddled, hammering away at his mind and body. And unless he can find a way to break out of his cage, his hours may very well be numbered.
