Reviews for Tall, Dark & Apocalyptic

5 Shooting Stars! Redz World Reviews: “…reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet with a post world war feel. Even the secondary characters were unforgettable… Tall, Dark and Apocalyptic by Sam Cheever will engage you on multiple levels; many you won’t even realize until long after you finish the tale.”

5 stars – Venus Cahill Reviews: This story jumps right into the action and never lets up! Yeira is a kick-butt heroine but she’s still easy to relate to, which was surprising considering her amazingly unique situation. Kord is the ultimate Alpha and he took my breath away. The setting becomes almost a third lead character and I loved it. I cannot wait to read more stories about the fabulous world this author has created. I will freely admit to being a huge fan of this author, I love her Honeybun series but I was a little apprehensive of reading an apocalyptic story as I rarely enjoy them but this one was a definite exception, not only did I thoroughly enjoy it I want more!”

 

Excerpt:

“There are ten reborns in that hillside lair.”

Audie pulled his sword so quickly the woman’s bright blue gaze widened slightly with alarm. “Let’s go kill them.”

Instead of moving, Yeira just stared up at him, looking eminently disappointed.

When she didn’t move, Audie placed the tip of his sword in the dirt at his feet and leaned on it. “What?”

“Have you even been listening to me?”

He frowned. “Hanging on every word, why?”

“You remember the part about my goal? Wherein I don’t kill everything that moves but instead try to find Edwige?”

She sounded so much like his legal counsel Audie couldn’t help grinning. She certainly didn’t look like any lawyer he’d ever met. “Vaguely.”

She turned on her heel and strode away, her feet hitting the dry, scratchy-sounding grass much harder than they needed to.

Feeling just a tiny bit proud of himself for getting under her skin, Audie started after her. The good feeling didn’t last long.

As soon as he caught up she glanced at him and asked. “So how good are you at restrictive magics?”

Audie worked hard not to show his panic. “I’m much better at whacking things than restraining them.”

One corner of her delicious mouth curved upward. “You do have guide magic, right?”

“Of course!” He was deeply insulted by her question. Only the novice hunter walked around without a guide to call. “I didn’t say I couldn’t restrain them. I just said I was better at lopping off their heads.”

She sniffed but didn’t say anything and Audie’s temper flared. Suddenly he found it very important to prove himself to her. He stopped, but the woman kept walking. Watching her fine, heart-shaped behind sway away from him, he lifted one hand, palm up. With a thought he called the magic in their surroundings and sparking blue particles of energy filled the air, speeding toward him. The light caught and swirled in a power-whirlwind above his palm, waiting for his direction.

Smiling, Audie glanced at the woman, whose, curvy form had widened the distance between them by ten feet. With a thought he sent the swirling blue magic surging toward her, grinning as it wrapped her in a shimmering embrace and dragged her to a halt.

She gave a little squeal of alarm and Audie strode over, stopping to stare down at her. “It appears my restrictive magics work just fine.

She struggled against his magic web. “Good. Now let me go.”

Watching her fight the magic, her red hair flying around delicate shoulders as she struggled to get free, something broke inside Audie. Something that had been closed was wrenched open. And suddenly he couldn’t help wondering how her wine-colored lips would taste—pondering how they’d feel moving softly beneath his.

Once the thought was free he couldn’t call it back and Audie stepped closer.

She stopped struggling and looked up at him through those unfathomable blue eyes, the thick fringe of dark red lashes fluttering slightly as she seemed to consider whether he meant her harm. Audie reached out and touched her porcelain-colored cheek, and she flinched.

His finger scraped softly against the velvet surface and Audie turned it so the calluses on the tips wouldn’t abrade her delicate skin. “How is it possible that you’re so beautiful?” He murmured. It was meant to be a thought. One he’d wondered all too often to himself. But the words escaped his lips and she heard.

Yeira’s eyes widened in alarm. “Look, Hunter, I…”

He didn’t want to hear what she had to say. Couldn’t stand it if, in the moment when his cold heart had warmed slightly, she filled the heat-charged air between them with ugly words. So he did the only thing he could. He lowered his head and captured her lush, burgundy lips with his own.

And the thing that had blossomed inside his chest creaked open another inch as she responded with instinctive passion to his touch.

Interview with Holly Hewson

HH: Sam, thank you for talking with us at The Romance Studio. Your featured book is Tall, Dark and Apocalyptic. Where did you get the idea for this amazing romance?

SC: Thank you for letting me blather on!

I wrote my first post-apocalyptic romance for Ellora’s Cave a couple of years ago. I really enjoyed the larger-than-life feel of this type of fiction and I’ve been eager to get back to it. When this box set opportunity came up it seemed like a natural fit. Nothing breeds alpha males like an apocalyptic environment!

HH: What do you like best about your heroine and why will readers like her?

SC: Yeira is the product of a dark witch wielding terrible death magic. She didn’t choose her situation, but she’s willing to step up and do the right thing to make amends, even if it means her death. She’s strong, resilient, and honorable to the end. Despite all these good qualities, Yeira’s no angel. She’s got attitude and she definitely keeps the hero, Audie on his toes!

HH: What do you like best about your hero and why will readers love him?

SC: Audie is a warrior. He’s been trained to take out zombies and he’s very good at his job. But he sees the world in black and white and he isn’t prepared for Yeira, or her effect on his heart and body. Yeira introduces gray, and he doesn’t know what to do with her. All he knows is he wants her bad. And, despite his training…in spite of pressure to finish the job…Audie just can’t seem to bring the knife down the beautiful, red-haired creature. His heart tells him she’s evil. His body tells him she’s his. So Audie does the only thing he can. When she asks for his help. He agrees.

HH: Tell us about the collection this book will be part of.

SC: Tall, Dark & Apocalyptic will release on March 8th as part of a box set entitled Tall, Dark & Alpha. As the name implies, this set features 10 hot Alpha heroes and the women who keep them on their toes. Here’s the blurb:

He makes your heart pound and melts your resistance away. He promises you a world of passion and you find it impossible to resist his dark charm. When he catches your eye across the room, you know he means business. He could be an executive, cop, shape shifter, or a bad boy looking for a little fun. Once he has you in his sights, you can’t get away—and after one sizzling night in his arms, you won’t want to. He’s Tall, Dark & Alpha.

Delve into the sensual worlds of award-winning authors: Randi Alexander, Koko Brown, Sam Cheever, Delaney Diamond, Eve Langlais, Afton Locke, Dawn Montgomery, Farrah Rochon, Paige Tyler, and Eve Vaughn. Immerse yourself in the alpha male experience.

HH: What else do you have in store for lucky readers?

SC: I’m currently writing Book 7 of my popular Honeybun Heat series. The release for that book is planned for the June/July 2014 time frame. I’m working on a new cozy mystery, set in London, which I’m co-authoring with the funny and talented Lizzie T. Leaf. I’m also working on Book 2 of my City of Lights MM paranormal series, written as Declan Sands. As soon as I finish my three WIPs, I have a Young Adult paranormal or two that need to be completed/written.

I need more hours and days, LOL!

HH: What do you enjoy most about being an author?

SC: Pretty much everything! I’m so fortunate that I can spend every day doing what I love. This is a really exciting time to be an author because if you choose to you can write and publish your own books. Publishing your books gives you creative control over everything; from the cover art to how the book is marketed and priced and in what formats. I’m learning a lot about the art of publishing even as I improve and explore the art of writing great books. It’s a fun and productive time and I cherish every minute of it.

HH:  What experience or experiences in your writing career have defined you to this point?

SC: The rejections, though painful at first, have ultimately made me more determined. Critical reviews have toughened my hide. My successes have informed me, giving me a template for where my writing should go. And the people I’ve met along the way have enriched my life and made me a better person. Every one of these things is important. Each one of them has a place in a writer’s life. Though some of them definitely took some getting used to! LOL

HH: What goals have you set for yourself at this point in your career?

SC: I’d like to make the bestseller lists…the big ones. And I’d like to keep expanding my reader base for my existing books to ensure the success of future ones. Most importantly, I want to continue to learn about my craft and increase my publishing knowledge, because eventually I’d like to publish the majority of my books.

HH: What do you enjoy reading?

SC: I read a lot of paranormal and urban fantasy. I also love a good mystery and read a lot of romantic suspense. Kresley Cole is one of my favorites, Larissa Ione is another. For romantic suspense/mystery I love Josh Lanyon and Linda Howard.

HH: Where can readers find you online?

SC: In addition to the usual places (links below) I also do a lot of guest blogs and join several online events each year. The best way to keep track of me is to Like my Facebook Author Page. I announce all my wanderings there.
