It’s week three of the BELLE CHASSE blog tour, so remember to stop and enter at each spot for a chance to win one of six gift cards! Look for today’s new link below.

Thanks for weighing in on casting Jason Momoa as Jean Lafitte in the Sentinels books! That was fun J. And JANIE won the $5 gift card, so make sure I have your preferred email.
CARL SCOTT won the Reader’s Choice last week and picked the latest from Dan Wells, Extreme Makeover (brilliant idea!). You can also substitute another book if you prefer.
For the BELLE CHASSE tour prizes, enter today at Books That Hook—thanks for the review! Reviews! Please leave reviews on both BELLE CHASSE and BLACK DIAMOND on Amazon—and many, many thanks if you already have done so.

Alleviate (Portals of Time #2) by Jackie Ivie
CHRISTMAS TEARS – current day.
Elena’s got a lot on her mind. The holidays are approaching and with them all kinds of cheerfulness…for everyone but her. The entire holiday season just highlights past pain. Loss. And depression. A river rafting trip down the Colorado River is the perfect anti-Christmas gift to herself. Nothing about the Grand Canyon in December resembles snow and cheer. And it’s actually working until the raft overturns, sending her toward a watery grave…IRISH CHEER – 1790.
His luck just might be changing. Morrigan is leading a salvage mission. Out on the ocean, fighting the elements, the men row toward a Spanish galleon. The big ship hit a reef. It’s sinking fast. Chances of finding a survivor are slim. Odds of pulling treasure from the wreck even slimmer. And then he pulls a woman from the sea…And finds both. …FIRE AMID THE SNOW…Elena hadn’t believed in Christmas magic. Until it happened to her

Sinner (Space Gypsy Chronicles #2) by Eve Langlais
He woke up not knowing his name, though it probably isn’t the worst thing that’s ever happened to him. Maybe. But now, Oblivion must fight for his life in the Pit of Lac’uus, where those with vices come to play….Sure he’s more or less a slave, but there’s no denying the intoxicating adrenaline of the fights, and the victor’s spoils are alluring. He might have even been content with his new lot in life if he didn’t have a feeling there was something important he should know….When a human from Earth joins the concubine ranks and acts as if she knows him, responding with soft gasps to his touch, he realizes there’s more to the things he doesn’t remember. But he knows if they do share an intimate history, it’s one he has certainly betrayed with his sins….However, Oblivion does what he must to survive, right up until the day his memories come smashing back, and the sinner must face his past. The Bone Cave (Bone Magic #3) by Sarah Remy
Magic will be tested and friendship tried as Avani and Mal battle new peril and old temptation in Sarah Remy’s stunning follow up to Across the Long Sea. With the Red Worm plague vanquished, and Malachi and Liam safely returned from Roue, Avani expects life in Wilhaiim to return to normal. But Mal and Liam have been changed by their journey across the long sea: Mal now walks dangerously close to the edge of madness, while the horrors of war in a foreign land have naïve lad to a young man seeking his place as sidhe among mortals. And the plague has left chaos in its wake: Wilhaiim’s priests are rising against King Renault, a serial killer is taking vengeance on His Majesty’s unwary subjects, and someone is using forbidden bone magic to kindle the Automata—mechanized monsters born of ancient necromancy. As Avani works to contain unrest and expose a murderer, she is unaware that a far greater threat is rolling in from the east: a bloodthirsty desert army intent on destruction. The Siren’s Dream by Amber Belldene
