Super Book Blast & Giveaway for On Her Watch for Rie Warren



This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Rie will be awarding a Kindle format ebook of In His Command, In His Sights,and On Her Watch plus a Don't Tell series swag bag to a randomly drawn winner via the Rafflecopter at the end of this post during the tour (swag bag is US ONLY). Remember, the more stops you visit and comment, the better your chances to win.


The year is 2071 and all hell has broken loose. As the government tries to control the territories that were once the United States, an armed rebellion erupts . . .

AWOL from her military post, Lieutenant Liz Grant will do anything for the rebels she now calls friends. Her latest mission: return to the Beta Corps army and obtain classified information that could turn the battle in the revolutionaries’ favor. There’s only one problem: Commander Linc Cutler.

Strong, coldly handsome, and always in control, Linc is perplexed by the beautiful soldier brought in for questioning. He doesn’t know if he believes her explanation for why she went missing. He only knows his intense sexual desire for her cannot be denied.



Now enjoy an excerpt:

The troopers backed away from me, out of the office, closing the door behind them. I watched Linc, releasing a smile. His guards had left me fully armed and operational with my two babes, chrome Desert Eagle 44 mag dates from hell, holstered on my hips. Seeing him unarmed—hands pressed behind his back--made me think he might be as foolhardy as the Freelanders, but I doubted it. 
I didn’t have to doubt for long. 
Sharp jaw, full lips, and his arrogant nose showed in profile when he calmly mentioned, “If you even think about going for your sidearms, you’ll be dead before you make a move, Lieutenant Grant.” 
My gurgled laugh hurt my bruised ribs. “I might be willing to test that theory.”
Movements fast and liquid, he came at me and cornered me under one of the cameras. Hands braced on either side of me, Linc’s breath brushed across my temple. “You’re in no position to test me, Liz.”
Hot restraint rolled off him. Not a single muscle moved from the breadth of his chest held a scant space from my breasts to his rugged shoulders straining the seams of his shirt. 
My gaze flashed to his, the burning blue brightness unraveling my protective shell. No man had ever affected me like this. My short fingernails tapped the holstered Eagles in warning. A warning that had no effect on Linc as his breath dragged deeper, filling out his chest until it came flush to mine.


A Yankee transplant via the UK and other wild journeys, Rie happily landed in Charleston, South Carolina, with her English artisan husband and their two small daughters--one an aspiring diva, the other a future punk rocker. After earning her degree in Fine Arts, Rie promptly gave up paintbrushes and canvas for paper and pen (because she decided being a writer was equally as good an idea as being an artist, of course it was). That was fifteen years ago, her writing career started! With a manuscript of super epic proportions! Safely stored under a lace doily in a filing cabinet. Possibly in England . . .

Since then she's done this and that, here and there, usually in the nonprofit arena, until she returned to her dream of being a writer. Even though Rie basks in the glorious southern sunshine as often as she can, she's mostly a nocturnal creature adjourning to her writer's atelier (spare bedroom) in search of her next devious plot twist or delicious passionate tryst.

No matter what genre or gender pairing she's writing, she combines a sexy southern edge with humor and heart--and a taste of darkness.

Darkness is growing stronger, weakening the light and killing off what makes the world a beautiful place to live in. Enter a world of fantasy and dreams, passions and temptations. A world where dragons, unicorns, magic and mermaids really do exist.A world where love WILL conquer all!

Our Review

Wow ! What an enjoyable read something new and fresh.Who would have thought of a unicorn wanting to turn human in order to be with her chosen soul mate?What an enticing story from beginning to end.The book had somewhat of a fairy tale feel to it.What a remarkable love story.This story was just so sweet and endearing.The character's were lovable and like-able and easy to relate to and  even some with a sense of humor.

 It's nice to see the choices and sacrifices one will make for true love and ones destined soul mate .Iria was destined to love Dezso but, being a unicorn that was not possible until fate intervened and gave her a chance and a choice to shape her own future.The Goddess showed her what her future could be like if she made the right choices and what sacrifices and choices she might have to make in order to have the kind of future so so desperately craved.What a hard choice that must have been for her not knowing what that sacrifice will be ?What could be asked of you ?Your life as you know it perhaps?

I normally choose one favorite character to rave about but, it was impossible to make a choice among these endearing characters so I will tell you what I loved about the two main characters.


I just love Iria what a kind a loving soul she was.Beautiful inside and out whether a unicorn or in human form.I loved how she was strong and courageous going after those things she wanted out of life.Love being along the ride of her smoldering love affair with Dezso .They came to each other in there dreams and were falling in love even before they met.Loved how she took her destiny by the horns and the tough choices she made without knowing the consequences.Just a kind and loving soul to all those deserving her kindness.Loved the way she loved Dezso will all her being.Loved the way she took charge to learn in all things to defeat her foe.She was really one of a kind...


Dezso was a loving a kind man also but he also held a bit of darkness that he held within himself making him afraid for himself and for Iria. Love the way he Loved Iria it was all consumming.All her needs and wants always came first.How he always worried about her safety and the way he missed her when she was away from her.Love that he was a product of magic.But, most of all it did not matter to him the women he fell in love with before he even met her was a unicorn before becoming human.Love that he was a man full of patience and kindness.And overall just loved the way he loved Iria with his whole heart.


What a unique story about love and sacrifices and defeating evil in order to get your happy ever after.Loved all the magic that  surrounded the book there were mermaids, magic makers,shape-shifters and a Goddess with wonderful powers and of course the dark and evil ones.A surprising tale of all love laughter and happy ever afters....


We are giving it 4 stars.....

My Lady, so perfect and pale, with such beauty and grace is a sensual goddess to be worshipped and treasured.

She is the treasure that I yearn to have as mine and I focus now solely on the change. I am not sure how much time passes when my power suddenly snaps back into me. I grind my teeth to keep from grunting from the impact. Surprised that Than has not sensed my power on the move, either that, or he has not shown me that he knows. I am also very pleased that he is so consumed with his search, that he does not realize what I have done.

“Mmm...”

Both Than and myself turn toward the feminine sound.

I feel my eyes widen in surprise, but I quickly conceal it. It worked, from what I am able to see of her. I can only see her face and the pale upper flesh of her breasts. What lovely breasts they are. I feel my mouth water for a taste of her creamy globes, and my hands itch to feel their weight.

The woman from my dreams kneels, nude within the heather, looking disoriented. Her hair is a tangled mess, partially covering her face. She does not seem to be able rise and stand solidly. Gravity currently appears to be her enemy.

Observing her, I feel as if I am floating. Light and filled with air, like one of my Uncle’s magic bubbles when it floats up toward the sun. Higher and higher, drifting into bliss, and I find myself smiling.

She glances up, sees me, and her mouth forms an ‘O’ of surprise. Her breathing becomes slightly erratic. It looks as if she is unable to catch a proper breath.

I find myself moving toward her as though being pulled by some unknown force, completely captivated by the sight before me and unable to resist its call. Now, we only have eyes for each other. I feel everything else around us disappear. It is now just her and I, caught in a spell woven of lust and intense longing. I am lost within the depths of her soul-filled, pleading eyes. I move closer to answer their call when an annoying buzzing sound pulls me from the spell.

Our Author Interview

What would you have done differently if you were the main character of your book? 

Honestly (apologies if this offends anyone), I’d have lots more sex. Lol- you asked!

What was your inspiration behind this book? 

I’ve always loved fantasy. My first movies that got me even more hooked are The Never Ending Story, The Last Unicorn and Legend. Each of them was magical in their own way. I guess you can say it’s a combination of all of them along with my sister’s love of unicorns that inspired me to write Lady’s Destiny.

Why did you become a writer?

 I’ve always loved writing from when I was young; even just jotting down nonsense that popped into my head, dreams or thoughts of my day (or a boy crush) in my journal(s). I wrote poems for my mother every chance I had. I don’t recall if they were all that great. I DO remember most of them based on the rhythm of “Roses are red…” Yea, lol


Do you have a favorite author or authors? 

You bet! My very first ever favorite was Stephen King. From there, there’s Laurell K. Hamilton, George R.R. Martin, Patricia Briggs, Karen Marie Moning, Stephenie Meyer, J.R.R. Tolkien, J.R. Ward, Jeanine Frost, Kresely Cole, Chloe Neill, Vicki Pettersson, Melissa Marr and Richelle Mead are the first ones that come to mind (yes, there are many more. I LOVE to read!)

Do you like to write your books in a continuing series?

 I’m still finding my likes and dislikes. But so far series seems to be what my characters want. 

If you could date any character from any book, who would it be and why?

 Oh boy. There are three I’d date, but (what seems to be) my life long crush is Vicious from the BDB series. I do adore me a bad boy, YUM!

What kinds of books do you like to read in your spare time? 

Everything and anything I can get my hands on. Mostly fiction though. I love a great escape!

As a reader and writer I think it is important to get to know your fans and make a connection with them as an author who takes the extra step to hear what their fans think and want in their continued writing is continued success and key to selling more books .Do you agree with that? 

Absolutely! I love talking with my readers, sharing what we have in common and hearing their thoughts about my work. I take it all (positive and negative) into consideration when writing. Some readers are so in tune with my stories, it amazes me! I’ve also made some incredible fans since my very first release. I absolutely adore my reader’s xoxo

Do you cry when writing sad scenes? 

Yes, a few times. I have to stop because I can’t see!
Did you have a Cover Designer? 

Yes, the cover designer for Lady’s Destiny is Kellie of Book Cover By Design. I think she did an amazing job and hope to work with her again real soon 
Who is your fictional boyfriend or girlfriend crush? Vicious from BDB. It tends to change once and awhile. But I always go back to him ;)

If you were able to dine and have a one on one with your favorite writer/author who would it be? 

This is a hard one. There are so many I adore! I’ll go with my first ever, Stephen King. I think we’d have a blast!

Do just re-read your favorite books? 

Sometimes. 

Do you ever get in a reading slump like your readers do?

 Ha! You bet I do!


What is the funniest book you ever read?

 I don’t recall a specific book. But I find myself laughing a lot when reading anything from Eve Langlias and Kerrilyn Sparks.

Biography:

I started off early in competitive sports and quickly got into football where I immediately adapted. I maintained football throughout my entire life. But my love for the gym and fitness didn’t start till sophomore year in high school. However, in my junior year I was in a terrible car crash where my head was crushed as I was ran over in the street by a truck after being catapulted at 80mph. I was airlifted to the hospital where I had emergency brain surgery and my heart failed. They immediately brought me back with an adrenaline shot where they presumed I would not live. I was in a coma two weeks. When I woke I had to re-learn everything including how to function and walk again.

In 2012 I went into training for NFL and now playing pro arena looking to keep pursuing football and modeling as well as motivate others and coach them in bettering their lives. Through fitness and motivational speaking.
