GraveTells Author of the Year, 2013 Epic Award Finalist, ebooks in Top 1000 on Amazon Kindle, and more!

I had a rather fantastic end to a wonderful 2012!

A few of my books have been dipping in and out of the Top 1000 positions on Amazon Kindle Store in the UK, with Crave (Vampire Erotic Theatre romance series book 2) sitting in the Top 1000 for the past seven days! Other books that have hit the Top 1000 there this week are Covet (Vampire Erotic Theatre romance series book 1) and Prophecy: Caelestis & Aurorea (Vampires Realm romance series book 2).

I also woke up this morning to see that FIVE out of the Top 10 Fantasy Romance books on Apple iTunes were my books. That’s right! Five out of ten! How amazing is that? Number 3 was Prophecy: Dark Moon Rising (Vampires Realm romance series book 3), Number 4 was Seduce (Vampire Erotic Theatre romance series book 3), Number 6 was Prophecy: Caelestis & Aurorea(Vampires Realm romance series book 2), Number 9 was Covet (Vampire Erotic Theatre romance series book 1), and Number 10 was Her Dark Angel (Her Angel romance series book 1). Crave (Vampire Erotic Theatre romance series book 2) would be higher than Seduce, but Apple shoved it into erotic romance… still, 5 spots out of 10? Yay.

A lovely email dropped into my inbox this week announcing that I had been chosen as the GraveTells Author of the Year 2012 in their end of year awards. I was also nominated in several categories in their readers choice awards, but didn’t manage to snag any of the top spots as I was snowed under with, well, Snow oddly enough. Work on Unleash and Bewitch kept me rushed off my feet during the period that voting was open. Still, my disappointment was completely obliterated when I received the email and the wonderful graphic declaring me the author the website had chosen based on merit rather than votes!

Here’s the shiny graphic that I will now proudly display here on my website somewhere!

 

 

If you click on the image, or the blog name above, it will take you to the page where they show all the winners they chose in the different categories, as well as say some rather lovely things about me. I’m really chuffed about this!

 

I also received notification that Her Demonic Angel (Her Angel romance series book 5) was selected as one of the Favourite Reads of 2012 by Cocktails and Books! Iris had some wonderful stuff to say about the book in the post on their blog.

 

Her Demonic Angel
Felicity Heaton
A demonic angel with a heart of ice, Veiron walks a dark path with vengeance on his mind. Nothing will sway him from his mission to destroy his master… until he risks his life to enter Hell once more to save a mortal female. The fiery beauty makes him burn with hungers he must battle and needs he cannot deny, tempting him to surrender body and soul to her.

Erin is convinced her refusal to do the Devil’s bidding will see her die in a terrifying realm straight out of her nightmares. The last thing she expects is the lethally sensual warrior who breaks into her cell and awakens the darkest desires of her heart and a fierce longing to know the heat of his caress.

Pulled into an incredible world where war is set to ignite and darkness is on the rise, Erin races with Veiron to escape the Devil’s legions in a journey fraught with danger and filled with passion that flares white-hot.

When Erin is faced with a life-shattering realisation and an extraordinary destiny, will their love give them the strength to battle both Heaven and Hell or will they be parted forever?

This on top of the fact that earlier in 2012 I received notification that my vampire romance novel Heart of Darkness was one of the finalists in the 2013 Epic Ebook Awards! I’ll find out in March whether it won the title of best paranormal romance.

If you haven’t read the book yet, then here’s a little excerpt from it and the blurb so you can see what it’s all about… you can also download an extended excerpt from the book in PDF format: http://www.felicityheaton.co.uk/long-excerpts/heartofdarkness-heatonF.pdf

 

Heart of Darkness
Felicity Heaton

A vampire prince on a four hundred year old mission to avenge his murdered sister…

Aleksandr Nemov won’t stop until the last of the vampire hunter’s progeny is wiped from the Earth. Each kill has stolen a piece of his humanity, pushing him towards the black abyss all vampires hold within their hearts. Now he is teetering on the edge, close to devolving into a beast, and time is running out as he tracks the last hunter to Prague. There he finds a beautiful woman who could be his one chance for salvation, but is it already too late for him?

A vampire guard who will do whatever it takes to protect those she loves…

Elise is dedicated to her duty. It’s the only thing she has left. All that changes when she meets Aleksandr in Prague and her master grants him permission to stay at her bloodline’s mansion. She knows all about Aleksandr but none of it prepares her for how she feels when the legendary prince’s hunt becomes one for her heart. Elise battles him with all of her strength but can she stop herself from falling for the handsome hunter? When he reveals the depth of the corruption in his soul, will she have the strength to face the pain in her past and do whatever it takes to save him?

Amazon Kindle Books Bestsellers

I’m thrilled that I currently have four books in the Amazon Kindle UK top 1000 books, and three of them are in the top 500, with two of them ranked above 200. It’s really exciting to see my paranormal romance books doing so well at Amazon Kindle! I had a slow start on amazon.co.uk but things are really taking off now and I’m looking forward to spending more time promoting and chatting on blogs, so I can see how that affects my sales and my books’ ranks.

The books that have reached the dizzying heights of the Amazon Kindle UK top 1000 / top 500, are all paranormal romance books, but my science fiction romance books are doing pretty well for themselves too. I have quite a lot of my books in the top 2000 and top 3000.

Her Dark Angel – Number 4 in Romance – Best Seller

Well, colour me happy. I’ve just checked Fictionwise and Her Dark Angel has leapt up to number 4 in romance, and is now placing as number 8 in the overall best seller chart! Squee!!!

Look! http://www.fictionwise.com/ebooks/c9/Romance/?si=0

Thank you to everyone who has purchased it so far. What a great start to the release this has been. Her Dark Angel, the first in my sexy new paranormal angel romance e-book series, made it to number 10 in Romance after the first week. I had expected it to drop, so seeing it shoot up to number 4, and therefore placing in the top 10 across the entire site, is thrilling. If you don’t have your copy yet, then let me introduce you the story… it’s guaranteed to make you hot and fuzzy inside.

Her Dark Angel
by Felicity Heaton

An angel without a mission, Apollyon lives trapped in Hell guarding the bottomless pit. Surrounded by endless darkness, he longs to fly free on Earth once more but his master hasn’t called him in centuries. When the call finally comes, it’s to serve a new master, a beautiful woman he has often watched over, a woman who has always captivated him.

Serenity is shocked when a gorgeous black-winged angel shows up in her city of Paris claiming that she called him when she was only casting a simple vengeance spell. He’s no other than the angel of death! When Apollyon offers to obey her and help her have revenge on her cheating ex-boyfriend, she can’t resist the temptation, but can she resist him? Can an angel as dark as Apollyon ever fall for a mortal woman like her?

Their charade as lovers quickly becomes reality when one dance leads to another and Apollyon proves that he’s as sinful as he looks. His sensual and hungry touch brings Serenity back to life, freeing her from the hurt of being betrayed and reigniting her passion, but she can’t ignore her growing fear. Lost in their moment together, Apollyon realises that there is a reason he heard her call—he’s in love with her.

But will Serenity see past the wings and believe that Apollyon returns her feelings and won’t hurt her? When her ex-boyfriend asks her to forgive him and be with him again, will she take the easy route or will she find the courage to fly away with her dark angel?

Dark, passionate and sensual, Her Dark Angel is a tale of intense desire and deepest forbidden love guaranteed to get your heart racing.

Her Dark Angel is the first story in a three part series. All of the stories cross-over by characters and world only, not plot, so you’re free to enjoy them in any order. Keep your eyes peeled for Her Fallen Angel (coming October 2010) and Her Warrior Angel (coming November 2010)

My two most recent releases, the science fiction romance Daughters of Lyra: Heart of an Emperor, and the vampire/werewolf romance novel Winter’s Kiss, are both top ten best sellers at Fictionwise.com.

Winter’s Kiss, part of the Vampires Realm series, has reached number 6 in romance and number 14 in the recent best sellers list after its first week. Daughters of Lyra: Heart of an Emperor has maintained a top ten position in romance for the third week and has now moved back up to number 7 in romance and number 16 in the recent best sellers list.

Winter’s Kiss
The tales of the mansion near Nika’s remote Russian village say that its lord drinks blood to live and that the guards are dead men walking, but that doesn’t stop Nika from falling for one of them–a man who seemingly hasn’t changed in twenty years, a man she wishes would be hers. One snowy spring night, her world and his collide when she is attacked by wolves and he rides in on a black horse to rescue her. But her knight in shining armour is far from saintly. He is a vampire, and she is becoming a werewolf… Read more

The second story set in my Sons of Lyra world, Sons of Lyra: Runaway Hearts, has reached the number 6 spot in Romance and the number 8 spot in Recent Best Sellers on Fictionwise.com after its first week!

This is incredibly exciting for me since the first story, Sons of Lyra: Slave Princess, made it to number 1 in Romance and number 1 in the Recent Best Sellers list. To have another story go straight into the Best Sellers lists again is wonderful!

Sons of Lyra: Runaway Hearts
Heir Prince Lyra I hates his life, and it’s only getting worse. Not only do Sebastian’s parents force him to remain on Lyra Prime with them and control his life, now they’ve gone and arranged his marriage. Unable to stand the thought of getting married before he’s seen the stars as his three younger brothers do and tasted adventure, he decides to run away. Only that’s not as easy as it sounds when you’re one of the infamously handsome sons of Lyra.

Terea needs to get away. She’s had it with men and her family. When she spots a man who looks as though he has a little money, she sees her chance and pickpockets him. The only trouble is, he’s quicker than her. Before she knows what’s happening, she’s been caught and is agreeing to leave the planet with him. Anything to escape Lyra Prime and her future there. Terea’s plan to escape Sebastian when they’ve left the planet behind is shattered when he cleans himself up and changes on her, losing his naive air and becoming a confident and dangerously sexy man.

A bottle of the strongest alcohol available is her last resort, but getting him drunk to the point of passing out means she’ll have to drink too, and before she knows what she’s doing, she’s sitting astride his lap feeding him the alcohol and kissing him.

When the ship is forced to stop and boarded by Minervan military looking for him, will Sebastian hand himself over to protect Terea? Will Terea stand by and let the man she’s falling for get hurt or will she sacrifice herself and return to her family for the sake of saving him? Will two runaway hearts find the freedom they’re searching for in each other’s arms?

I can’t believe it’s gone up another position. I don’t expect to reach number 1 since the new Laurell K Hamilton book is taking pre-orders at a ridiculous price, but maybe it could knock the number 1 romance off the top spot and claim it for it’s own.

Sons of Lyra: Slave Princess by Felicity Heaton
Captain Lyra II, known as Balt to his family, is one of the famed sons of Lyra, the handsome princes with passionate hearts that every girl in the galaxy wants to catch. The second eldest son, he’s content with the freedom and adventure that life in deep space and the Lyran Imperial Army offers him. What he isn’t content with is the current situation he’s found himself in. Not only has he been forced to stop at a backwater port for supplies, but he’s leaving with more than he expected!

Kayla is a slave but can still vaguely recall what it had been like to be free. It’s something she believes that she’ll never taste again, and when she finds herself handed over like the piece of property she is to a complete stranger, a Lyran prince no less, she’s convinced her life is about to get a lot worse. Taken onboard his ship, she quickly finds herself torn between fulfilling a promise she made to her friends when she was young, and falling for his chivalry and good looks.

Balt, not wanting a woman as his slave and not wanting to become the laughing stock of the admirals, intends to dump Kayla at the first decent planet he comes across, but as he starts to learn more about her, he finds it harder to fight his growing attraction to her. A passionate kiss from her only makes things worse.

When Minervan mercenaries demand he hand her over, he discovers her true heritage and realises that things are more complicated than he’d believed. Will Balt let her go, sending her into a life as a pleasure whore for the highest bidder, or will he fight to protect her? Will Kayla take revenge for her people, the Terrans, who were almost exterminated when Lyra destroyed the Earth system? Can love between a prince and an enslaved princess ever have a fairytale ending?
