About the books

9th Life

9th Life
Book Length: 274 Pages
Published: April 11, 2014
Zookeeper Skyler Ashcraft prefers scorpions to skirts, but flirting with the feral gains new meaning when she unwittingly drugs a feline shape shifter. The same rules should have applied: Approach with caution and the near-impossible keep your hands to yourself.
Bastian is uniquely dangerous among the Ailuro, a people capable of much more than shape shifting. The way his anger psychically endangers others earned him exile, as self-imposed as mandated. It’s the reason he should leave Sky alone. If only it was that simple.
When the predator becomes prey, the hunt is on. If it’s truly survival of the fittest, they can’t hope to win.
The zoo’s primary rule of expect the unexpected hardly prepared Sky for this, and in the end, they find there are worse things to lose than your life, and nothing they won’t risk for love.
The Forgotten

Book Length: 353 Pages
Published: April 19, 2014
Nothing in Sky’s life looks the same since she met Bastian-exiled Ailuro, love of her life, and his own worst enemy. The revelations of the last few days, days that saw the end of Bastian’s ninth life, what should have been his last, have rendered her life unrecognizable-but survivable.
Bastian can’t claim the same.
He only lives with his sins in the hope of keeping Sky out of Maarjaaran hands. His hope lies in hers. And she’ll do anything to save him. Unfortunately, the only thing that might work demands far more from her than simply giving in to the Maarjaaran marks.

Book Length: 325 Pages
Published: July 26, 2014
You’ll be the death of him.
Word of the Kayaditi has spread, and it seems everyone wants a piece of her. Sky longs to change the Maarjaara, to be free of their expectations. But when she slips down a path that Bastian can’t follow, she’ll find the treacherous climb back is littered with unimaginable truths and unacceptable solutions.


"The Naming of Legends series, without a doubt, has a soundtrack. This music inspired me, haunted me, and helped me instantly conjure the feel of the story whenever I needed it. 9th Life features a band (including concert) that was always 30 Seconds to Mars and their album, This is War. Bastian refers to the album cover being more accurate (and definitely not owls)." Want to learn more about the sound track?

So what songs are the soundtrack for each book?

9th Life:
Hurricane by 30 Seconds to Mars
What I've Done by Linkin Park (Bastian is humming this in the restaurant waiting area. Very telling.)

The Forgotten:
Nothing Left to Say by Imagine Dragons (Sky's song for part 2 of the book)
Bleeding Out by Imagine Dragons (Feels like they wrote this for the finale of this book!)
You tell me to hold on
Oh you tell me to hold on
But innocence is gone
And what was right is wrong
'Cause I'm bleeding out
So if the last thing that I do
Is to bring you down
I'll bleed out for you
So I bare my skin
And I count my sins
And I close my eyes
And I take it in
And I'm bleeding out
I'm bleeding out for you, for you.

Bleed Out by Blue October (Beautifully captures how Bastian feels at that most furiously hopeless moment in the hospital near the end)

Book Title: Encore 
Author: Lori Toland 
Genre: Gay Romance 
Release Date: September 2, 2014 


Blaze Shinozuka is a bonafide rockstar with his band, Razor's Edge. After his romance with music manager Jason Stockton crashed and burned, Blaze is free to live and love. It's been a wild and heady year that's been blissfully drama free until the one man he's been avoiding comes careening back in to wreak havoc on his heart once again. Jason Stockton has become the superstar he never wanted to be. When his music reality show becomes an overnight success, he's thrust into the limelight against his will. He's coping with intrusions into his private life but then a chance encounter sends him right into the arms of the man he loved...and lost. Their time apart has changed them, except the passion between them burns brighter than ever. With the media hounding them in the midst of multiple scandals, they find they can only depend on one person — each other. Will they learn to trust that their love is enough to see them through it all? Or will this be their final dance before calling it quits, this time for good?


“Hey bro.” Blaze turned around and grinned at Tommy, the lead singer of their band. “Hey man,” he said and gave him a one arm hug. “I’ve gotta talk to you real quick.” “Blaze.” Suddenly there were a dozen people on stage with them as they moved the set around. Zack’s drums were already set up on the stage and Blaze’s guitar rested in the stand from the tour. Blaze turned back to Tommy. “We’ll talk later, yeah?” Tommy shook his head. “It’s important. You’re gonna freak the fuck out.” Blaze frowned as he dug in his pocket for his guitar pick. “What’s wrong?” An announcement that rang out drowned his answer and Tommy threw up his hands in exasperation. After the introduction ended, he yelled, “Really? We’re trying to have a conv—” Tommy froze midsentence and looked over Blaze’s shoulder. When he turned, he saw the one person he hoped never to see again in his life. In a town as small as Hollywood, he knew that wasn’t realistic but he had hoped they would be able to continue keeping their distance from each other. As he looked up into Jason Stockton’s narrowed dark brown eyes, his heart pounded. The sliver of trepidation was drowned in the instantaneous desire that surged within him. Even though Jason had nearly destroyed him, Blaze still wanted him. Jason Stockton had been his first real relationship and they had been head-over-heels in love until one stupid moment when they threw it all away. Though their fight had seemed important at the time, it had been stupid. Blaze knew that now. Their disagreement over Cassie had been fueled by lack of sleep; their argument had spiraled out of control until they called it quits. Their very public break-up left Blaze’s heart shattered. Somehow over the past year, he had managed to avoid Jason and Blaze would have given anything to continue that winning streak. He glared at Jason. “What the hell are you doing here?”
