READ, HOT & BOOM with Britt Bury (Guest Post/Giveaway)

Welcome back lovelies! Today I am please to welcome new paranormal romance author, Britt Bury, over for our event. Britt's debut release, The Darkest Day, is actually out TODAY! Congrats on your first release, Britt!

By Lorna MacAvoy and Ava MacAvoy—Poet and Mystic Fionn sisters, and best friends to Izel Campbell.

Ava: It’s finally summer! *twirls a green sparkler in the air*
Lorna: Ava honestly, you’re an adult woman running with a sparkler. Not to mention, sixty-nine percent of injuries during the week of July fourth are due to fireworks. *Waves hand in front of face and coughs as Ava skips circles around her*
Ava: Stop being such a candy ass. You know the fourth is one of my favorite holidays. You get buy things just so you can blow them up. You get to light fire to random crap and watch it blow up. You get to eat hot dogs over a bon fire at the beach and then blow the left overs up.

Lorna: What kind of fourth of July parties have you been to? And have you talked to Dr. Krossman about your obsession with fire? *Lorna pulls out her blackberry and checks her email* We’ve got to hustle this up, I have an appointment.
Ava: First off, *Ava tosses the now dead sparkler and digs through the massive pile of fireworks on the curb* I don’t have an obsession with fire, I have an obsession with blowing things up. Secondly, you didn’t tell me you had a date. *She winks at Lorna*
Lorna: It’s not a date, I got hired by a private company to persuade a lock combination out of some warlock.
Ava: You and your magical words. Want me to come along and—
Lorna: If you say “blow him up,” then no, I’ll pass.
Ava: I was going to offer my magical assistance. *She waves her fingers at Lorna and they being to glow*
Lorna: I’ve got this handled. A few enchanting words and he’ll give up the information in no time.
Ava: Maybe you can enchant your way into the guy’s pants while you’re at it. *Another wink*
Lorna: *Typing on blackberry* I have too much going on to think about dating. Besides, I love you sister, but your taste in men is…
Ava: What’s wrong with my taste in men?
Lorna: *Glances at Ava then returns to typing on her blackberry*
Ava: Hey! Scooter wasn’t so bad.
Lorna: Ava honey, Scooter lived in a frat house, which he wasn’t even a member of by the way, and measured success by how many working toilets there were at any given time.
Ava: He was also beer pong champ three seasons running. *Mumbles, still digging through fireworks*
Lorna: I’d love to go into this further, but we’re out of time. Weren’t we suppose to deliver some message about fourth of July safety and what not?
Ava: *Laughs while running up to a brick townhouse and putting a very large fountain firework on the door step and drops a brown paper bag next to the fuse* That’s what we’re doing. Hey everyone! *She flicks her lighter and the firework sparks—the brown paper bag also catches on fire. She runs back to the curb and takes her place next to Lorna* Be careful when you light up fireworks...
Lorna: Oh lord…*Puts her hands over her ears*
Ava: Especially, next to a bag of dog shit on your douche-bag ex-boyfriend’s porch!

Izel Campbell was raised to believe she is an immortal Fionn with the magical skills of persuasion. But when she travels to Scotland to visit her ancestral home, Izel discovers that she is actually the world's last living human. Forced to run for her life, Izel crosses paths with Kelvin Kerr, the Campbells' greatest foe-and the most magnificent warrior she has ever seen.
A thousand-year-old battle chief of the Kerr clan, Kelvin lives only to avenge his father, who died at the hands of the bloody Campbells. Honor demands he kill the Campbell heir, but when he learns that the lovely Izel is both Campbell "and" human, Kelvin is torn between duty and desire . . .
