MIDNIGHT DAWN is here!!!! #MortalMachine #PNR by @JocelynAdams #Excerpt

“Midnight Dawn straps you in from the beginning and whisks you away on an emotional, breath-taking ride of romance, fantasy, and good vs. evil. It's magic.” --Naima Simone, author of the SECRETS AND SINS series

Midnight Dawn (The Mortal Machine #2)
Release Date: August 4th, 2014
Publisher: Entangled Publishing, Embrace Imprint
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Her soul remembers his touch, even if she doesn’t. 

With only three days until the wraith king turns the earth into an all-you-can-eat buffet, Addison Beckett is forced to enlist brooding sentinel Asher Green’s help to unlock the Mortal Machine. According to the founder, all she has to do is find the sanctuary—the same sanctuary she can’t remember because Asher erased her memories.

Trying to save humanity while navigating Asher’s lies is a royal pain. But the more time she and Asher spend together, the harder her soul tries to remind her what else he’s made her forget—that he loves her, wants her, needs her.

When she’s trapped by the wraith king and forced to pick who will stand by her in the coming battle, Addison is faced with an impossible choice: the sentinel she loves who refuses to love her back, or a powerful stranger who insists they’re meant to be together. Her decision will determine the fate of humanity, and once decided, can’t be undone.

Pick up a copy at only $0.99 for a limited time!:



I handed the sarcophagus over to Kyle. As Asher boosted me up, something creaked on the far side of the room. He jerked me down again as Kyle ducked back outside, and I ended up with my back against the wall behind a display case with Asher’s tense body pancaking mine.

Oh. My. God. I might have squealed if there’d been any air left in the room. I wiggled my hands up between us and pressed my trembling palms against the forbidden land, half blind with the pyrotechnics going off in me. Not now, body. Off-limits. Proper girls do not poach other girls’ guys. Please, for the love of God, do not sigh or make any ridiculous sounds.

A spark of familiarity lit up behind my lids, which had closed, as if my fingers had once explored the lay of his spectacular landscape and knew every rise and fall. But he’d never let me get that close to him before, except when he’d carried me to my bed last night. That had to be it, but why had it stirred such an emotional rush for me now? Maybe it was the adrenaline.

I couldn’t keep my fingers from crawling up into his hair. Just as I’d always imagined, it was the best damn thing I’d ever touched. Thick and soft, cool on my skin, the satin threads tickled as they gave way to my stroking. So good. No drug could ever suck out my anxiety and fear and fill me with such utter peace. I could have stayed there for hours, until I knew every strand by touch alone, which way it waved, especially the ones that curved around his ear on his left side.

He made a choked sound, thrusting me out of my tactile wet dream and back to reality. I cracked my lids open and ran head-on into his demon stare, which seemed nuclear bright in the dim lighting. Oh yeah. Bad guys. Trouble. Yep, head in the game, Addy. Jesus.

I gave an awkward smile, and mouthed sorry. Thank goodness my energy storm hadn’t come out to light me up—as much as I could without a conduit. Nothing like a glowing beacon to draw the bad guys right to us. Then again, I was the Darkside Sun, so it was only a matter of time before they followed their senses right to me. Dammit, we needed to get out of here before I ended up getting Asher killed.
