Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: The Law of Moses by Amy Harmon

The Law of Moses by Amy Harmon
Release date: November 27, 2014
Cover Design By: Hang Le
If I tell you right up front, right in the beginning that I lost him, it will be easier for you to bear. You will know its coming, and it will hurt. But youll be able to prepare.

Someone found him in a laundry basket at the Quick Wash, wrapped in a towel, a few hours old and close to death. They called him Baby Moses when they shared his story on the ten oclock news the little baby left in a basket at a dingy Laundromat, born to a crack addict and expected to have all sorts of problems. I imagined the crack baby, Moses, having a giant crack that ran down his body, like hed been broken at birth. I knew that wasnt what the term meant, but the image stuck in my mind. Maybe the fact that he was broken drew me to him from the start.
It all happened before I was born, and by the time I met Moses and my mom told me all about him, the story was old news and nobody wanted anything to do with him. People love babies, even sick babies. Even crack babies. But babies grow up to be kids, and kids grow up to be teenagers. Nobody wants a messed up teenager.
And Moses was messed up. Moses was a law unto himself. But he was also strange and exotic and beautiful. To be with him would change my life in ways I could never have imagined. Maybe I should have stayed away. Maybe I should have listened. My mother warned me. Even Moses warned me. But I didnt stay away.
And so begins a story of pain and promise, of heartache and healing, of life and death. A story of before and after, of new beginnings and never-endings. But most of all...a love story.

***Disclaimer - There is absolutely no cheating in this book. However, this book does contain descriptive and super hot sex scenes that will make you blush and leave you hot and bothered. Make sure you have you husband, partner, boyfriend or significant other nearby when reading, or else batteries. Lots and lots of batteries***

Makenna Lewis cringes at any mention of the word commitment. She doesn't want or need a relationship, but she does like sex (who doesn't).

That explains Noah, Sean, and Zander, her three 'friends with benefits'.

They know the score, they know they're not the only one, and each of them provide her with a different physical need that she craves and enjoys.

Until a late night encounter with the delicious Daniel Winters turns her preconceived notion of no-commitment completely on its head.

Soon she finds herself feeling things she vowed never to feel again, and when Daniel pushes for more than she's willing to give, she falters.

What do you do when something that you've known to be so wrong in the past feels so damn right?

If you're Mac, you run and hide.

But is Daniel the type of man who takes no for an answer?

True Bliss (Bliss #2) - Kate & Zander's Story (& the continuation of Mac and Daniel)

She watched her best friend find her superhero. 

Now she wants her turn.

Despite a run of bad dates with Mr. Wrong, Mr. Boring, Mr. Bad Breath, Mr. Grabby Hands, and even Mr. Say I Love You After One Date To Get Into Your Pants, Kate McGuinness is more determined than ever to find the one.

Having tried everything else, she turns to the internet in a last ditch attempt to find her elusive prince.

But Kate doesn't want an everyday, run of the mill love.

She wants the kind of love that makes your heart skip a beat. The kind of love that makes you dance in the rain and bottle up the sunset. The once in a lifetime kind of love that authors write about, musicians sing about, and lovers dream about.

Could a certain police officer in training, who has come to her rescue in the past, be the one to swoop in and save her heart?

What if the love Kate desperately seeks has been in front of her the whole time?

She just needs to open her eyes to see it...

*Disclaimer: This book contains a hot as hell stripper with a penchant for public sex and exhibitionism who may or may not succeed in bringing out the inner firecracker in all of us. Oh, and don't forget the batteries.*

Permanent Bliss (#3.5) - The wedding nobody ever thought would happen!
This is a companion novella for Makenna & Daniel. You met them first in Temporary Bliss, then watched the other parts of their story come to 'life' in True Bliss (see what I did there!) Now join them as they seal the deal in Permanent Bliss. 

Makenna Lewis never thought she would be the one walking down the aisle to marry her superhero. But then again, she hadn't expected Daniel Winters to crash into her life and tilt her world off its axis two years earlier. As they celebrate their last days of singledom, they find themselves battling over the guest list, managing the in-laws, and dealing with last minute disasters that threaten to disrupt their special day.

In true Bliss fashion, we'll see freak-outs, awkward situations, hilarity, drama, and cringe-worthy moments as Mac and Daniel prepare for one of the most important days of their lives. Join the Bliss gang as they watch two of their own walk down the aisle and conclude their happily ever after.

This companion novella follows on from the end of True Bliss and will lead into Finding Bliss - Noah 'Walking Dildo' Taylor's story.

***Disclaimer - Hot sex, drunken texts, horny phone calls, and a wedding anticipated by all but one. And, of course, a few freak outs along the way (but NOT the kind you're used to) because that's how Mac rolls ***

#3 Blissful Surrender (also on sale for 99c)

 Displaying Blissful Surrender Cover.jpg

This is a story of Sean Miller, a dom that will have your panties diving for cover with an eyebrow quirk. That will have even the strongest woman dropping to their knees in submission with a piercing stare, and Samantha Richards, a female cop who’s tough, seemingly impenetrable shell is strong enough to resist everyone except the one man it was build up to protect her against.

**Disclaimer – If you thought the first two Bliss books were hot, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Creative use of handcuffs, batons, a club scene you have to read to believe, and a tough as nails dominant who is blindsided when the one woman strong enough to disarm him threatens his resolve not to let his past dictate his future.**

An avid music fan, you will always find her with headphones when writing, and the speakers blaring the rest of the time.

Beckett's book is everything I wanted it to be times a thousand, seriously, Poughkeepsie lovers are going to  inhale this book.  I read this on a warm sunny day, spent the whole day inside completely absorbed in this story. 
I was trying to figure out what genre this story was, romance, thriller, crime, contemporary adult, too hard to pigeon hole this series because it has absolutely everything.
Things have changed a lot in Beckett's life since we first met him, he was a criminal, the king of Poughkeeepsie's underworld.  The one constant about him was the love he had for his brothers Blake & Cole. 

 His brother's lives have changed, they are both married now to "white bread" and "fairy princess."  Blake and Livvy (white bread) now have two children,  Cole and Kyle (fairy princess) are desperate to adopt a child as soon as they can.  They are moving forward with their lives and it makes Beckett feel so good to see them doing so well.

The other thing that makes Beckett feel good is his beautiful lady, Eve (killer).  He completely loves and adores this woman.  She is everything to him and the feeling is mutual from Eve.  They have returned to Poughkeepsie and the city is very different, there are some shady people who are determined to take control of the city.

Beckett has had a lot of time to reflect on his life and what he sees his future being like.  He makes a decision that will ensure Poughkeepsie is a safe place for his family to live and raise children in.  He wants to give back to the community but it will not be an easy road with Victor Vitullo looming in the background.  Vitulllo is determined to secure his bloodline and his legacy and will stop at nothing to get what he wants.  

Hang on to your seats because this book is about to take you on one hell of a ride.  There is one particularly heartbreaking moment, okay there are quite a few but when you get to 'that' moment that will forever stay with you, you'll know what I'm talking about.  There is tragedy, death and new life. 
The transformation of Beckett into the man who we already loved to what he becomes in this story is just wonderful.  That heart of his doesn't just pump blood through his body, it breaths life back into Poughkeepsie.

"And baby, wait until you see - I'm making Poughkeepsie so goddamn safe God himself
could take a shit with the door open on Main Street."  He spread his arms wide. 
"You should put that on the town sign." - Beckett

I loved every moment of this story and give Debra a standing ovation for this stunning conclusion to this fantastic story.

I give this 5+ stars

Debra Anastasia is busy, just like every other mom. There’s dinner, the dogs, the two kids, the two kids, and her ongoing battle with…ahem… digestive issues, which combined with her adolescent boy sense of humor makes for colorful and sometimes cringe-worthy social media updates. Her first love and crowning achievement is her thriving career as the weirdest mom on the block.
Her writing started a decent handful of years ago when–along with the animals and humans in her house–the voices of characters started whispering stories in Debra’s ear. Insomnia was the gateway to plots that wouldn’t give up, wouldn’t let go. Now they stalk her everywhere. Halfway through making lunches, a twist takes hold and–fingers full of peanut butter–she finds somewhere, anywhere to write it down.
She’s eternally grateful to Omnific Publishing, which has now published four of her books: two in the Seraphim Series and two in the Poughkeepsie Brotherhood Series, as well as her novella, Late Night with Andres. That one is special because 100% of the proceeds go to breast cancer research. (So go get it right now, please!) She also very much appreciates her open-minded readers, who embrace everything she has to offer, with a focus on anti-heroes and bathroom humor.
Debra lives in Maryland with her family. You can find her at and on Twitter @Debra_Anastasia. But be prepared.
