Giveaway and Tour Kickoff for The 12th Paladin by Nora Weston

Hello and Welcome to the tour kick-off of this fabulous book!!!  Nora and I both love Sci-Fi movies and I had to ask her what were her top ten?  This is what she said:
Top Ten All-Time Favorite Sci-Fi Movies
I love Sci-fi books and movies, and coming up with this list was harder than I thought it would be! Chronicles of Riddick did everything right, so it’s number one on my list. Fabulous plot, multidimensional characters, a super bad guy, Vaako (Karl Urban), and I loved the music, dialogue, and special effects. Vin Diesel is Riddick. I can’t think of anyone to play him better.
Need a smile? Remember this.
Prison guard: You'll kill us...with a soup cup?
Riddick: Tea, actually.
Prison guard: What's that?
Riddick: I'll kill you with my teacup.
I mentioned Karl Urban as Vaako. His screen presence is top-notch. Did you not adore him as Bones in Star Trek? As Eomer in the Lord of the Rings, I knew we’d be seeing much more of him.
So, on to the list…
Chronicles of Riddick
Star Trek
Star Trek: Into Darkness
The Fly
Galaxy Quest
Happy Accidents
Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Inspiration Behind The Twelfth Paladin
Dread, mixed with curiosity and splashed with caution, is what inspired The Twelfth Paladin. Have you ever been tempted to do something you absolutely knew you should not? Well, years ago, I received a mysterious email inviting me to play. “Play what, with whom?” I whispered, feeling a rush of excitement while reading the frightening offer. I’d been invited to join a club like no other, and few were considered. Yes! I understood it may have been a joke, or possibly just a harmless email with links to online games, but in the long run, sensibility won out due to the sender’s email address being creepy. Still to this day though, I wonder where the link would have taken me.
Leave it to my wacked out imagination to allow that virtual summoning to inspire Jake Cottrell’s character. Reckless and a trouble-maker, Jake fears nothing, so he is the perfect guy to tackle the supernatural battle dropped in his lap. He literally goes through hell to discover this world is not as it seems, nor are the people in it.
Would you have clicked on the link? Well, no matter—Jake will take you on a roller coaster ride to Hell and back, as he battles demons, a temptress extraordinaire, and his totally screwed up conscience to keep his soul.

lol..Now let's take a look at this book:

        Title: The Twelfth Paladin
Author: Nora Weston
Publisher: Melange Books LLC
Length: 242 pages
Sub-Genres: Erotica

In The Twelfth Paladin, good against evil battles as an angel, demons, and a temptress extraordinaire, named Rachel Darnell, vie for the soul of Jake Cottrell. Jake foolishly dares Hell to burn him. Hell agrees.
Scarred with angelfire by a rebellious angel, named Micah, Jake Cottrell is sanctioned to become the twelfth paladin in Micah 's supernatural unit of slayers. However, regret abounds as Micah is banished and ordered to protect what he now despises a human he believes is unworthy of such an honor. Never fear, Jake is a seeker of mischief who soars on a blistering blacktop to escape the wrath of Hell while he transforms into the twelfth paladin.

Youtube Trailer:


Forbidden desire incited, I fell into Rachel’s maddening world feeling her splendid, bare breasts upon me. No rest for the wicked. A bit delirious, “Damn you,” slipped through my lips knowing I stood upon the jagged edge between life and death. Fuming with monstrous hunger, I danced on that edge feeling good and evil collide in every cell of my body. “Wait…oh…my God, just wait,” I said running my fingers through her black as midnight hair.

“I’ll wait for nothing,” said Rachel skimming my neck with claws fit only for a beast. “You’re mine.” More bewitching kisses, irresistible and dreadful at the same time, demanded I fall into chaos.
Tightening my grip on sin, I said, “You’re unbelievable, magnificent.” The computer screen flickered with a deep blue light as hatred in my soul grew for Rachel, but my flesh…cursed and weak, was so anxious for her essence it made me sick. You’ll be the death of me, but I’d die a happy man. Uh, hold on a second. I don’t want to die. Ready to escape her vindictive entrapment, I dared to look upon Rachel’s eternal beauty saying, “I won’t…can’t let you in.”

“Too late.” Refusing to budge, Rachel slithered her smoking-hot body all over mine sparking a wildfire in my lust filled skin. “You beckoned me,” she said mesmerizing me with eyes so dark they had to be portals to Hell. Soft laughter, accompanied by a playful caress, extracted all fear while Rachel ingested the precious beams of moonlight. “You need me, Jake.” Left awestruck by the mystical presence, shadows froze at the mere sight of her.
“Wrong…you need me,” I proclaimed as every inch of my throbbing, hard body burned for her.

“Choose your words carefully, well…that is if you want to keep your tongue.” Sitting on top of me, she scraped my jaw with those deadly claws saying, “So shut up. I know what you crave. Yes…I…do.” Rachel slid down my tormented body making sure I’d regret rejecting her. Molten hot lips scorched my flesh, and then she chanted a devilish spell that devoured all guilt.
Sexual torment, synthesized to the nth degree of potency, ignited in my veins with a vengeance. No, stop—don’t ever stop. Sh—shit. This can’t be happening again.

No mercy existed as Rachel licked my face and then bit my bottom lip drawing fresh blood to quench her primitive thirst. Glaring into my eyes, she smiled wiping warm blood from her perfectly glazed, red lips. “Um, sin-filled wine.” Soulless eyes gleamed with unadulterated evil as her intoxicating scent and mouthwatering body seduced my soul.
Choppy, maniacal rambling echoed like thunder and then dulled to become a terrifying murmur the likes of which only the Tower of Babble could contain. The hushed turbulence in the room frolicked with Rachel’s enticing lawlessness, until at long last…my conscience revved up to kick my ass. I halted Rachel saying, “I don’t want you anymore. To Hell with you!” I awoke sweating and exhausted from the lunacy buzzing throughout my mind.
Heavy from the encounter, my eyes twitched. Free from Rachel’s spell, moonlight attacked optic nerves extinguishing the rampant fire inside me. Light? Yes, it’s virtuous…and when light is summoned, it’s an almighty force to be reckoned with. That was a priceless lesson for this seeker of mischief to learn.
In the unguarded stillness of the night, I sat up in bed shaking my head while marveling at Rachel’s ardent pursuit. That beautiful…but dangerous bitch is still messing with me. Will it ever end? Feeling fresh, blood-ridden wounds on my chest made my heart flutter. “I let her into my dreams and now look at me,” I whispered catching my breath. Well, thank God I survived this one. Close call…yeah, really close. Sorry to say, the netherworld had splattered my nighttime reality with enviable, but hazardous sexual antics that, if accepted, had the ability to conquer any sense of righteousness I still retained.

Hi, Sebella & Marlene!

Galaxy Quest will always be one of my favorite movies. My twelve year old son recently watched it. He was surprised how funny it is.

And, my goodness! Enemy Mine is a fantastic movie. My sci-fi list of favorites could go on and on...

Thanks for entering ladies! :)

Marissa: I did like Star Wars when it first came out. Maybe I should watch that one again. (By the way, "Marissa" is one of my main characters in Guardian 2632. Great name!)

LhasaLuma: Riddick...awesome and sexy indeed! :)

H.B.: A paranormal/fantasy read always sounds good to me too.

Thanks to you all for entering.
Enjoy the weekend!
