Blurb:

When I find out I have less than a year to live, the last thing I want to do is take up some birthright left by my estranged father. Or have anything to do with the giant, muscled jackass on a motorcycle who delivered the message.  

But it looks like my bucket list will have to wait. 

Not only does Hell exist, but I’m actually half demon and next in line to rule the Underworld. To take my rightful place on the throne, I’ll have to go through a series of deadly challenges, fight terrible monsters, and make incredible sacrifices.  

Will it be worth it? Absolutely. Because winning means the ultimate prize.  

My life back.

I’m not the only one who wants the crown, though, and my new enemies are devilish in the worst possible ways.  

They say, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” and not only am I going to live… 

I’m going to rule.

**Immortal Throne is a standalone.**

Harper A. Brooks lives in a small town on the New Jersey shore. Even though classic authors have always filled her bookshelves, she finds her writing muse drawn to the dark, magical, and romantic. But when she isn’t creating entire worlds with sexy shifters or legendary love stories, you can find her either with a good cup of coffee in hand or at home snuggling with her furry, four-legged son, Sammy.

She writes urban fantasy and paranormal romance.

Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:
Blood is thicker than water.

 

With the bombshell that Ophelia dropped on the night of the mating ceremony, Mackenzie is struggling with her inner self. Everything she once believed her life would be, just got turned upside down—and not by choice.

 

Fae magic runs through her blood and the consequences are dire. The demon wants what Mackenzie has because of her blood and will stop at nothing until he gets it … even if he has to kill her in the process. But the question is, why does he want it so badly? And why is he killing so many innocent lycan in his quest?

 

To get these answers, Mackenzie will ally herself with those who once were her enemy. But she’s making a dangerous choice, because at any moment, they’re right on the sidelines ready to stab her in the back.

 

Her blood is the key. Can Kenz survive a battle against Abaddon? Or will the ones closest to her be the ones to take her down?

The gate is open, allowing unspeakable evil to seep through. Can Nash stop the rising darkness? Or will Katarina pay for his failure with her life?

I’ve always loved to write ever since I was young. I would picture myself as the main character so I could go on adventures. They began as daydreams, which I eventually put down onto paper. Throughout the years I would write whenever I got the chance no matter how small the manuscript turned out to be. I’d tried the traditional method of sending out query letters to agents, but they would respond with a “thanks, but no thanks” note. I felt discouraged, but kept writing. I had a lot of encouragement from my mom, my Aunt Jeanne, my daughter, and my husband. Having the support helped keep me chasing my dream. A few years ago, I decided to buckle down and get serious about my writing. After some research and speaking with a friend of my husband, I took the plunge into self-publishing. I found an editor and a cover designer along with other indie authors on Facebook. I’ve joined groups and asked advice from writers who have already been through the steps it takes to get out there. It took me four years and three versions before I published my first book titled Wasteland. From there, I’ve completed several series and stand-alones with quite a few more in progress, so watch for their release.

It’s hard enough being an undergraduate student, an intern at Downtown Manhattan’s police station, and a bouncer at a local bar. Add her now ex-boyfriend who recently dumped her for the school’s resident bimbo—oh, and she’s a werewolf. 

Mackenzie Grey meets her match when she is kidnapped by the Brooklyn Pack and tossed between Sebastian and Jonah—the Alpha and the Beta. Being a lone-wolf in the city is dangerous, and now that the Pack has found her, so can every supernatural being in the Tri-State area. And not even her sarcastic, smart mouth can get her out of this. 

When a string of kidnappings involves Mackenzie in supernatural politics, she questions her new acquaintances and finds unlikely allies. Can she escape Pack law and keep her freedom—or will she be condemned to an unwanted path?

How dare she have the audacity to send me a notice of evacuation from my own kingdom? She strangled the letter in her hand and watched as it burnt to a crisp. Moments earlier, a squire arrived with the rolled up parchment with the seal of Theonidor. A few moments after, two guards arrived with a heavy oak crate. It was bold of her to assume it was good news. Her first thought was that the Queen of Theonidor had finally sent her more enchanted jewels. Impatience got the best of her and she immediately broke the seal to read the letter. Within a matter of seconds anger lacerated her body like ropes wrapped around her, pulling her in multiple directions at once.

“My queen?” The guard’s voice was low and filled with uncertainty.

“Open the crate!” Dimia’s shrill tone bounced off the walls of the throne room as both guards stumbled and struggled to catch their bearings and they fumbled over the hinges and locks on the crate.

Bile rose in Dimia’s throat as another wave of anger barreled through her. She balled her hands into fists and banged on the arms of her throne.

“How dare she?” Her voice was a feral growl that mirrored the animalistic rage coursing through her veins. For a girl who was supposed to know nothing about her kingdom and one who was supposed to be dead, the Maudlins were causing quite a raucous in Dramolux and Dimia wanted no part of it. Dramolux was hers and hers alone. No one, not even Aymeri and Kumud Maudlin would be able to stop her from obtaining it.

The head of Queen Palagia of Theonidor stared at her with wide, dark red eyes filled with fear in her last moments. This was not supposed to happen. Queen Aymeri was supposed to be defeated. Why was it taking so long? Why wasn’t it as easy as her grandfather said should have been?

Now she’s bound to her writing for a completely different reason. Her life and her works are more than labors of love; they’re a matter of life or death. Each new manuscript becomes a book of sacrifice when her blood literally turns to ink.

They should be simple enough. I mean, everything begins with them, right? A single letter can be a word. A series of words become sentences. A series of sentences become paragraphs: papers, short stories, novellas, novels. Sounds easy, and yet as I sat there staring at a blank page, I couldn’t for the life of me seem to put my thoughts into a cohesive flow. 

I was suffering from a severe case of writer’s block, and my muses seemed to be on the longest coffee break ever. This would have been all well and good if I weren’t under a deadline with my publisher. Naomi had been kind enough to give me three extensions but had made it clear there would not be a fourth. I sent her some pages in hopes she’d take pity on me, but instead, she emailed them back to me in a bold, harsh font and told me they lacked my usual passion and fire and to go back to the drawing board. 

Nine hours later, I was still staring at a blank screen. Hope of any inspiration knocking me over was as cold as the cup of coffee and a half-eaten chicken sandwich sitting on my desk. Nothing was working—not the junk food or the caffeine. Maybe I should grab some chocolate and alcohol, I thought. Wasn’t it Ernest Hemingway who said, “Write drunk, edit sober”? Hell, what did I have to lose at this point?

A seemingly impossible task when Rune, a cursed, pain in the ass Fae warrior is assigned to train me. He’s hellbent on freeing his beloved princess and I’m desperate to save Tor. But no matter how hard we snarl during training; we can’t stay away from each other.

I thought the worst thing that could happen to me was the apocalypse.

I was wrong.
