Blurb: Devastated by her mother’s death, Emma Thorton inked her body with protection and eternity tattoos. Years later after being pulled through a portal into the
Nightshade universe, these markings brought her to the attention of a powerful and deadly vampire. Her only hope is to turn to another vampire who she is unexplainably drawn to.
Frazour lived by the sword when he was mortal and it was the reason he was converted to a vampire. He lived to kill his adversary and shied away from vampires and humans alike. Frazour is finally about to meet the enemy for a final battle when his focus is distracted by a woman he senses is his mate.
Although Emma was claimed by another vampire, Frazour will sacrifice his life to be with her. Their only hope is that they are true soul mates and will gain the powers to overcome the dangers inherent in the Nightshade universe.

Another great piece of news. I FINALLY get to meet my awesome cover artist, Fiona Jayde when I am at RT in Atlanta next month. She provided an awesome cover for my book.

Prudence ‘Prue’ Hardt never knew who her father was, only that he was from Magic, New Mexico, a town she hasn’t seen in twenty years. Fearful of the power that she might have inherited from any number of mystical beings that live there, Pru knows she has no choice but to track down her paternal DNA before it is too late. What she doesn’t expect when she returns home is to be drawn to a mysterious man, or to discover that her life is in danger.
Star Ranger Dreyden has been on one too many missions when he is ordered to a primitive planet to spy on a small town with unusual residents. His attitude toward his unwanted assignment changes when he spots a beautiful woman – and sees the patterns on her skin. Patterns that can only mean one thing – she is his chosen one. Resentment turns to cold determination when she is threatened, no easy task when she isn’t exactly appreciative of his efforts.
Prue and Dreyden must work together as Prue searches for her father and struggles with her new powers. Dreyden knows that it will take a touch of prudence to convince Prue to trust him. Will he be able to protect her from the dangers that threaten their future while she learns to control the power she wields?
Happy Holidays to all my readers. I hope you all have wonderful memories of 2016 to look back on and you are excited about 2017.
2016 allowed me to meet a number of readers who have enjoyed my books since the first one, ‘The Chameleon Soul Mate’, was published in August 2014. I used to go to conventions to meet my favorite authors and now being on the other side is AMAZING!
The Chameleon Soul Mate will be .99 cents through the end of the year so if you haven’t read it yet, don’t delay in snapping up this great opportunity to treat yourself.
I’d love to meet each and every one of you and renew friendships in 2017. Happy New Year!

Here is the second half of the review. The first part gives away some of the plot twists I’d like you to discover while you are reading the book:

Selected (The Zaratan Trilogy: Book 1)
“Selected” enters space and leaps to warp speed at an astronomical pace, taking the reader along for a fabulous ride! Ms. Lederman’s world-creating ability is second to none, as is her crafting of a remarkable storyline that will leave everyone wondering “What if?” It’s a unique combination of “Twilight”, “Romeo and Juliet”, and a little “Hunger Games” and “Survivor” thrown in for good measure. The writing is clean, the conflicts are believable, the dialogue natural, and the action scenes so well-orchestrated one can easily follow and imagine them happening. This story grabs from the first line, demanding the reader’s attention and holds it until the last page…which is only the beginning of Kara and Matt’s new life. Exceptional story…highly enjoyable…and a keeper for any lover of YA Sci-Fi. Great job!
