Gliterary Girl Media Presents: Stacey Rourke’s latest book in her Gryphon Series, Ascension.

The award-winning Gryphon Series from best-selling author Stacey Rourke has made some exciting changes. Each book has an all new cover and AMAZING illustrations

 

Ascensioncover(1)ABOUT ASCENSION

From best selling and award winning author Stacey Rourke comes the heart-pounding continuation of the acclaimed Gryphon Series.

The turning point of the Gryphon saga is at hand …

Battle looms. Three unstoppable forces prepare to clash in a colossal explosion that could wipe Gainesboro off the map. Fate and sacred calling have landed nineteen year old Celeste Garrett in the middle with nowhere to run.

Her trust wavers as she uncovers dark secrets of the Council, powerful enough to test her loyalty and turn her against those she swore to protect. Playing to the longing of her heart, a malevolent enemy uses her weakness against her to form an alliance.

With the trumpets of war about to sound, which side will the Conduit choose, and who will be left standing?

EXCERPT
alainasketch

Somewhere between sleep and awake he came to me. The mattress shifted under his weight as he settled in beside me.

Warm breath teased against my ear. “I could ne’er leave you, lovey.”

His wandering hands gripped my waist and rolled me to face him. This warbled land governed by sleep couldn’t conjure his whole essence—too much time had passed for that. Instead it teased me with glimpses of what I’d been missing; silky hair caressing my cheek. Hot kisses traveling down my neck. Emerald eyes filled with an insatiable hunger. The sensual awakening that jolted through me when his mouth found mine.   

“I’m always with you,” Caleb whispered against my lips.

I twined my arms around his neck and pulled him closer; a move that garnered a low groan of appreciation. His hands roamed up my arms and encircled my wrists. In a sudden, shockingly violent, move he forced them down against the mattress and pinned me there.

I gaped in confusion as green eyes blinked to sapphire blue. His seductive stare twisted into visible disgust and hatred. Like ink dumped from a bottle, the black drained from Caleb’s hair. The dripping color leaked away to reveal long strawberry blond hair ponytailed at the nape of his neck. Alec. Not the latest version of him currently possessed by a three-hundred-year-old demon, but the Alec I first met whilst rolling a tire. The carefree boy I had started to fall for before fate intervened. Yet the look that darkened his gaze was more murderous than welcoming. I thrashed and bucked beneath him but couldn’t seem to summon one iota of strength. His grip on my wrists tightened to the point of pain.

“Is he worth it?” he hissed in my face. “Is he worth the blood on your hands?”

Crimson red blood bubbled up Alec’s throat. It seeped between his teeth and dribbled down his chin. “Will he still want you when he knows what you’ve done and what it cost?”  

Squeezing my eyes shut, I cringed further into the mattress as blood rained down. The warm stickiness, with its pungent rusty smell, dripped on my face and soaked my shirt. 

I risked a glance up to see Alec’s lips curl in an evil grin. “Now, how ‘bout a kiss?”

He bowed his head and crammed his blood soaked lips to mine. My muffled scream quickly turned into a gurgled gasp for air as I fought not to drown in this crimson hell.

Stacey Rourke Resized[box title=”About Stacey Rourke” color=”#bd0909″]There is nothing worse than being put on the spot and asked to talk about yourself. For me it brings back that inevitable moment in a new school when the teacher would ask me to stand up, introduce myself and tell the class something about myself. I was always worried I would blurt out something stupid that I would get teased for. Something like, “My name’s Stacey and I like pickles!” Then for the rest of the school year I’d be known as the Pickle Girl and let’s be honest, no one wants that. So to avoid such a faux pas I will simply say that I love to write. It allows me to get my crazy out just enough that I can function as a normal member of society.

ABOUT The Winged Series     Winged.1

Winged

I fell from the Talmadge Bridge the week before I turned thirty. I was given a choice: Go to Heaven. Go back to my life in Savannah. Or spend eternity fighting evil under the direction of the archangels. I chose the demons–and the angels. I chose the Winged.

Uprising.1Uprising

In the last year, Joanne Watson has died, fallen in love, fought demons and earned her Wings. None of that compares to what’s coming next…. Life as a member of the Winged isn’t perfect–or easy. There’s always some new camp drama. There’s always a demon ready for a fight. There’s always death. And now there’s the Resistance.Joanne must choose again, this time between her fellow Winged and their burning desire for change or the archangels and the eternal vow she made. Even in the afterlife, one truth remains–everything ends

Lost.1Lost

In the last year, Joanne Watson has survived repeated attempts on her life, wholesale slaughter, and the dissolution on the cornerstone of her new existence. And the hard times are only beginning. As the line between right and wrong, friend and foe, and good and evil continue to blur, Joanne is forced to face another irrefutable fact. The most dangerous demons to fight are the ones you can’t see.

HuntHunt

The last six months have seen more death and destruction than any could have predicted. And the war is only beginning. With the fight taking Joanne and her friends from city streets to abandoned farms to the center of the earth, only one thing is certain. The hunters are now the hunted. AllianceAlliance The Fallen have one goal–storm the gates of Heaven and reclaim their heritage. The Winged have one mission–to prevent it all costs. From North America to Africa, Europe to South American, the stage is being set for the final battle, the one to end all worlds, and with it comes an ugly truth. Keep your friends close–and your enemies closer. [divider top=”0″]           Praise For The Winged Series [quote style=”1″]EXCELLENT BOOK. THE characters are unforgettable and THE STORY LINE IS wonderful. Makes me think of the Bible and its stories of the Angels. I love the mixture of creatures and the time lines[/quote]   [quote style=”1″]I LOVE this series and I cannot wait for more!! I love Pruitt’s imagination. The story is fantastic from the first sentence of the first book and I could not put these books down![/[/quote]   [quote style=”1″]I read this book over 5 months ago and am still having trouble putting my thoughts into words. This 3rd installment in the Winged Series by L. M. Pruitt was a gut wrenching read for me. It was dark, thought provoking and hit me between the eyes[/quote]

[divider top=”0″]

“If we’re going to do this, we need to do it now.” Raquel’s voice in my ear startled me and I pulled too tight on Kaleanne’s strap. He waited until I rectified the mistake before continuing. “The longer we stand here, the more nervous this bunch will get.”

“Let’s go, then.” Stepping back, I resisted the urge to check my gun one last time. Looking at the six soldiers—I couldn’t in all fairness refer to them as recruits anymore—in front of me, I forced a smile. “Last one in the church has medic duty.”

Aron kicked the door open, blinding sunlight flooding the small room. Sketching a half bow in my direction, he said, “Ladies first.”

“Bet your ass.” I drew my gun as I sprinted out the door, finger on the trigger against every safety mandate. I caught sight of gray wings at the far right edge of my vision, ten or fifteen feet out. I pulled on the trigger with only the slightest of aims, barely feeling the recoil. The only indication I hit anything was the howl of pain and rage.

Hopefully it would prove a big enough distraction to aid the others. Even one second might make all the difference.

Something with tentacles and the head of a man charged from the left. I took the time to aim for the center of its forehead, firing two shots before continuing my sprint. One probably would have sufficed—the bullets were supernatural, guaranteed to impart maximum damage.

The tentacles just freaked me out.

I hesitated at the next target—only because of Barry. But when Delilah raised a sword as long as my torso, self-preservation overcame any possible sense of guilt. My only concession to her father was to aim for her shoulder—both of them, to be on the safe side. She dropped the sword and bent double, screaming, and I leaped over her.

“You shot my sister.” Aron drew level with me, not winded in the least despite the run. “You’re my father’s friend and you shot her.”

“Twice. His friend, not hers.” I took down another demon, something with honest to God horns and a tail. “Less talking, more shooting.”

 When the Heart Falls Cover Warm Version

ABOUT When the Heart Falls

Winter Deveaux knows pain. She knows fear. She knows heartache. What she doesn’t know is love. Which is a real problem for someone trying to write a romance novel. When a chance to spend a summer in Paris promises her a cure to her writer’s block, she packs her bags, never suspecting that the source of her darkest secret will follow her across the world. Cade Savage is a man torn between two worlds. As son to the wealthiest ranching family in Texas, being a cowboy is in his blood, but his heart is set on architecture. He has one shot to decide his fate: a summer course in Paris. Winter and Cade leave everything they know behind to follow their dreams to the city of lights, but they soon learn you can’t run from the demons that haunt you. In a story of heartbreak, humor, forgiveness and finding love, these two lost souls must face their darkest fears before they can claim their heart’s desires. But summer love can’t last forever, and soon they must choose between their future and their past. Between their dreams and their love. Between their secrets, and forgiveness. Can they forgive the unforgivable in order to find happiness? Or are some people beyond forgiveness? AND NOW WITH A ENTIRELY NEW READING EXPERIENCE … how HOT do you like your romance? Now YOU can choose!
