Special Offers and Special Rewards by M.L. Ryan Excerpt Tour and Giveaway

M.L. Ryan

Meet Hailey - possessed by an otherworldly being who was trapped in her Kindle.

Hailey Parrish was quick-witted, irreverent, and hadn’t had a date in three years. She only wanted an eBook reader because her collection of paperbacks threatened to take over her small living space. Little did she know that the "special offers" that prompted the purchase included much more than a reduced price in exchange for a few ads. The device came pre-loaded with the essence of Sebastian Kess, an erudite womanizer with magical abilities from a parallel dimension. When she inadvertently releases him and he inhabits her body, she finally has a man inside her, just not in the way she imagined. And soon her predicament introduces her to yet another supernatural, the handsome could-be-the-man-of-her-dreams Alex Sunderland. Can Alex and Hailey find a way to return Sebastian to his own body, stay one step ahead of the criminals who want to keep him where he is, and not lose their sense of humor?
Special Offers, the first book of the Coursodon Dimension Series, combines paranormal romance, urban fantasy, a bit of science fiction and a healthy dose of quirky humor.


I landed sprawled on the floor on my back, Alex covering me with his body.  Normally, I have no problem having him on top of me, but in this situation, I just felt squished.  His face was mere inches from mine, and even in the dark I could tell he had morphed into Xyzok-mode.  He placed a finger to his lips to make certain I would stay quiet and rolled off me into a crouch.

“Stay here, and stay down,” he whispered with such intensity, there was no way I was moving even if I had been so inclined.  Which I wasn’t.  Slipping silently across the room, he grabbed his gun from a drawer in the small desk across from the sofa, popped the clip in place, and returned to where I was laying.  “Sit up, but keep your back to the wall.”  I complied, and when I was upright, he handed me the gun.  Still keeping his voice low, he said brusquely, “You know how to use this, right?” 

I nodded with as much moxie as I could muster, which probably wasn’t much, considering it felt like my heart was about to pound out of my chest.  Alex, being a well-trained Xyzok, was used to random shit like this happening.  He seemed alert and ready to spring into action.  I, on the other hand, was completely thrown off by this unexpected assault on my own turf.

“I’m going to check outside,” he continued. “If anyone comes in here while I’m gone, shoot.  Aim for the chest. It’s the biggest target.”  He started to slink away, but turned back and added, “But make sure it’s not me.”  He winked, and then moved stealthily to the still partially open sliding door to the patio.

He moved like a predator stalking its prey; completely focused on the task at hand.  Vigilant, nimble, deadly.  Beautiful and enthralling.  If I wasn’t so rattled, I probably would have been turned on.
