The Fates are cackling their bony asses off...  

It’s been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs they’ve given him have been violent and bloody – which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He’s got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet.

Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy’s deal might be, but it’s a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after leaving home is about to be thrown into an Olympian-sized blender turned up to “puree”. Either Josie is going insane or a nightmare straight out of an ancient myth is gunning for her.

But it might be the unlikely attraction simmering between her and the golden-eyed, secret-keeping Seth that may prove to be the most dangerous thing of all.

Book 1 in the new adult paranormal TITAN series, spin-off to the best selling COVENANT series. Seth's Story.



When it was announced that there was going to be a New Adult spin-off of the Covenant series, and it was going to center around Seth, I did this...




And then THIS because, hey, it was right next to me. Why not?

But seriously, I was SO EXCITED for Seth to get his own story. Don't get me wrong, I love me some Aidan St. Delphi, but I'm a sucker for a redeemable bad boy, and I've always had a soft spot in my heart for Seth. So much so, I made him his own Cuddle Bunny cupcake.

As with her other books, The Return has all of the elements fans have come to expect and enjoy about an Armentrout book: Great story, engaging characters, witty banter and plenty of swoon. 

Seth has been carrying around a lot of baggage and the last thing he wants or needs, is to have to babysit a human. Or at least, a girl he thinks is a human. Josie may not possess the physical strength Seth does, but she more than makes up for it in emotional toughness. She sees the best in those she cares about, including Seth, and she manages to bring it out in him even when they aren't getting along. 

Which is quite often. And highly entertaining.

The relationship that builds between them wasn't at all what I expected, it was better. Tender and sweet, it had me laughing one minute and fanning my face in the next. I really enjoyed stepping back into the world of Greek Mythology and I'm anxious to see where Seth and Josie's journey takes them next! 

I have no doubt fans of The Covenant Series will make this one a favorite too!

BLOG TOUR: Frazzled by Booki Vivat (GUEST POST + GIVEAWAY)

Meet Abbie Wu! She’s about to start middle school and she’s totally in crisis.

Abbie Wu is in crisis—and not just because she’s stuck in a family that doesn’t quite get her or because the lunch ladies at school are totally corrupt or because everyone seems to have a “Thing” except her. Abbie Wu is in crisis always.

Heavily illustrated and embarrassingly honest, Frazzled dives right into the mind of this hilariously neurotic middle school girl as she tries to figure out who she is, where she belongs, and how to survive the everyday disasters of growing up. With Abbie’s flair for the dramatic and natural tendency to freak out, middle school has never seemed so nerve-racking!

Packed with hilarious black-and-white illustrations and doodles throughout, Frazzled takes readers through Abbie Wu’s hysterical middle school adventures.

Sleeping has never been so scary. And now waking up is even worse!

Charlie Laird has several problems.

1. His dad married a woman he is sure moonlights as a witch.

3.He can’t remember the last time sleeping wasn’t a nightmarish prospect. Like even a nap.

What Charlie doesn’t know is that his problems are about to get a whole lot more real. Nightmares can ruin a good night’s sleep, but when they start slipping out of your dreams and into …
