Ella
Fairytale Stepmothers Book 1
by J.L. Higgs
Genre: Fairytale Retelling, Fantasy

Celebrity TV Reporter Sylvia Stark is determined to find a real investigative news story instead of the fluff she usually covers. She discovers just what she’s searching for in the most unlikely person: Cinderella’s evil stepmother, Charlotte Johansson Baker. Sylvia decides it’s time this infamous old crone tells her side of the story, since everyone knows all about Cinderella.

Since the story broke twenty years earlier, Cinderella has become society’s image of female perfection. She is the lowly, downtrodden young maiden who suffers the injustice of others with grace, never getting angry—always beautiful and yet also dignified. She embodies the ideal values of goodness and ultimate virtue, as well as finding true love.

However, what if all that’s just a bunch of bull? After talking to the cursed stepmother, Sylvia’s world is turned upside-down. Then, she and her cameraman are kidnapped and rescued by—who else?—Humpty Dumpty. Sylvia is now more determined than ever to find out the truth of what’s really going on in the magical land where fairy tales began.

HENRY
Sir
Arthur’s Legacy #5
by
Sarah Hegger

 

Genre: Historical Romance


Pub
Date: 8/29/2017
 

 

A light
in the darkness . . .
 
The
youngest son of Anglesea, the once idealistic Henry has survived the
Holy Pilgrimage, but lost all his deeply held beliefs in honor and
nobility. Captured in battle, he is sold as a slave into the home of
Alif Al-Rasheed, a wealthy Genovese merchant who has converted to
Islam. Bereft of faith, imprisoned in a foreign land, Henry has lost
hope in his ability to love again—until he lays eyes on his
captor’s beguiling daughter.
 
A
marriage of opposites . . .
 
To Henry,
Alya is a beacon of beauty he cannot ignore. But the heart of this
proud daughter of Cairo will not be won so easily. Divided by
religion, language, and culture, Ayla has little in common with the
disillusioned Englishman—and yet he has vowed to protect her life
in exchange for his freedom. As they embark on a perilous journey to
safety, their bond will grow—and be tested—in ways neither can
anticipate. For their greatest challenges will arise where Henry
least expects. With threats conspiring to divide them, will he find
the strength to stand by Ayla—and together will they find a common
ground on which to build a future?
 
 
 
Born
British and raised in South Africa, Sarah Hegger suffers from an
incurable case of wanderlust. Her match? A Canadian engineer, whose
marriage proposal she accepted six short weeks after they first met.
Together they’ve made homes in seven different cities across three
different continents (and back again once or twice). If only it made
her multilingual, but the best she can manage is idiosyncratic
English, fluent Afrikaans, conversant Russian, pigeon Portuguese,
even worse Zulu and enough French to get herself into trouble.
Mimicking her globetrotting adventures, Sarah’s career path began
as a gainfully employed actress, drifted into public relations,
settled a moment in advertising, and eventually took root in the
fertile soil of her first love, writing. She also moonlights as a
wife and mother. She currently lives in Colorado with her teenage
daughters, two Golden Retrievers and aforementioned husband. Part
footloose buccaneer, part quixotic observer of life, Sarah’s
restless heart is most content when reading or writing books.

I hate faeries…they are deceitful, evil, and conniving

Saturday, September 23rd, 2017
The Halfling
by Melissa H. North
Genre: Fantasy
“There are three things I know are
certain in my life. Firstly, I am a cursed halfling—part faerie,
part human. Another thing I know is I hate faeries. They are
deceitful, evil, and conniving.
The third thing I know—and it is
a certainty—nothing is guaranteed in this life, including your
sanity, your family, and your world as you know it.” –
Eliana
Eliana finds herself propelled into a world she longs
to stay away from; a world where nothing is what it seems. In a race
against minds, she must master her magic and fight an unimaginable
darkness, stretching throughout the realm of Grandelione. The same
darkness that cursed her mother and, now, her half-brother is laying
dormant in her too.
It grows stronger with each passing
day.
Left with two options, she must choose to fight and bring
peace back to Grandelione or plunge into a world of darkness and
murder.
Can she learn to harness her magic and bring
peace back to Grandelione and her family?
Or will the
darkness within consume her?

 

Pursued by her brothers from the Faerie
realm of Grandelione, Eliana Ariarose flees through the streets of
New York City.
Her brothers are sworn enemies, with
the youngest, Caelian, having battled to earn his title of Crown
Prince from Aemon – a royal who vows bloodshed in order to have his
claim to the throne restored.
As Eliana flees, she makes startling
discoveries about herself and her real identity, as well as the truth
about her upbringing.
Eliana meets many beings from the
Faerie world. Some would die to keep her safe, while others would
happily steal her immense and unusual powers, right before destroying
her heart and soul.

Writing has always
been a hobby and cathartic experience for me. Turning my passion into
a fulfilling career as an Author has been one of my greatest dreams.
I write because creating something that didn’t exist before is as
close to magic as I’ll ever get. All you need is imagination.
I’ve
always been passionate about storytelling and impressed by the
influence it has on people and the decisions they make in life. I
love engaging with the projects I work on, diving headfirst into the
research, investigation, and production of stories I feel are worth
writing about. I am a curious and proactive Author, interested in
preserving the foundations set by classical literature by adapting
them to modern themes and trends.

A HERO
TO LOVE
Changing
Tides #2
by
Gail Chianese

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance


Pub
Date: 8/22/2017
 

 

A military
police officer on the verge of a new beginning. A beautiful woman
devoted to her career and her dream of putting down roots. The
hardest thing they’ll ever do is to take a chance on love . . .
Navy Chief
Master at Arms Jackson “Jax” Faraday is at a crossroads. He has
to decide whether to reenlist or get out while he’s young enough to
make a difference in the civilian world. Either choice could mean
leaving behind his girl: his K-9 partner, Bella. But when she’s
injured during a training session, Jax’s only concern is making
sure she’s okay.
As the Navy
base veterinarian, town local Risa Reynolds is right where she
belongs: close to her parents in a farmhouse full of animals—with
room to grow. She’s seen enough to put military men are on her “not
happening” list, because they always leave.
But when a
tall, hazel-eyed sailor arrives in her clinic with his dog in his
arms, Risa finds herself falling hard. And all kinds of rules will
get broken when Jax, a man who sticks to the straight and narrow,
learns that there’s no predicting the twists and turns of the heart
. . .
 
 
 
Gail Chianese’s love of reading began at
the tender age of three, when she’d make her grandpa read Fourteen
Country Rabbits over and over and over again (and correct him when he
skipped parts). While she’s branched out over the years by reading
mystery, women’s fiction, and urban fantasy, she always circles
back to romance in the end. That’s probably because she’s married to
her real life hero. Her wonderful hubby has served in the US Navy for
the past twenty two years and he’s done things he can’t tell her
about. But it doesn’t stop her from being extremely proud of him
and the sacrifices he makes for her, his family, and his country.
He’s also uber-supportive of her dreams and of their three
children. Living in Mystic, CT and a member of Connecticut Romance
Writers of America, Gail loves to hear from readers.

Extinct
AM13
Outbreak Series Book 3
by
Samie Sands
Genre:
Horror
 
Writing
books about the horrors of the zombie apocalypse is one thing—but
Georgie Blake can’t believe it has become her reality…

 

 


She
never expected her fictional stories of blood, death, and the
consumption of human flesh to jump off the page into the real world.
She certainly didn’t think she’d survive this long if they had.
As a shy novelist, she was sure she’d be one of the first to
die.

 

 

Safe
in the Sanctuary, Georgie holds on to hope for a cure…

 

 

But
that’s not all she holds on to. The government has promised the
people of the Sanctuary that they can return home. The rumours are
rife that there is an antidote on the horizon. But even if not, the
infected are dying out, throwing the treacherous AM13 virus to the
brink of extinction. If the infection dies out, this horrible
nightmare Georgie is living in will be a distant memory.

 

 

Until
everything that’s right goes terribly wrong…

 

 

Soon
after meeting some new friends in the Sanctuary, Georgie learns she’s
going to have to face the monsters outside the walls if she wants to
return to her old life. But for a scared, introverted bookworm, it
may be too much to consider…

 

 

Will
Georgina conquer her fears of the dead to return home, or will she be
one of the countless others who have gone Extinct?

Forgotten
AM13 Outbreak Series
Book 2
 
Every
attempt to contain the deadly AM13 virus has failed, leaving humanity
on the brink of extinction…

 

 


The
plague is spreading out of control with no cure in sight. Then the
government announces its new plan—a sanctuary in an area completely
untouched by the infected—as long as you can get there alive and
unscathed.

 

 

Ethan
Watton has managed to survive this long, even with OCD making every
day more hellish than it already is…

 

 

Ethan’s
obsessive-compulsive disorder dramatically affected his life before
the infection began. Now he’s desperate to get as far away from the
zombie virus as humanly possible. Isolated and afraid, Ethan thinks
there is no way in hell he will survive the epidemic.

 

 

Alyssa
Turner has spent her teenage years prepping for the undead to
challenge her zombie killing skills…

 

 

Alyssa
knows with absolute certainty that she will survive the AM13 virus.
She’s read all the books, watched all the films, and done all the
research. She’s strong, tough, and a self-proclaimed badass. Any
group would be lucky to fight alongside her…until the unthinkable
makes her doubt every skill she’s acquired.

 

 

Dr.
Jones is a scientist who doesn’t understand why he was selected to
produce a cure…

 

 

Surely
there are survivors more experienced in virology than he is. And what
will happen to him—and the rest of the species—if he fails? Is
the fate of the human race really resting on his shoulders? Or are
there others working toward the same goal?

 

 

With
the zombies multiplying and survivors struggling to make it to the
sanctuary, Ethan, Alyssa, and Dr. Jones fight to fulfill their
destinies. If they fail, their fate is sealed, and they will join the
millions of others who have been…

AM13 Series Book 1

Watton’s practical joke has spiralled way out of control—all to
impress a crush…

 

 


With
a prank online video, Leah hopes to catch the attention of Jake
Colton, a cute, blond-haired, blue-eyed co-worker she’s had a crush
on for months. But instead of sending it to Jake, she manages to
forward the clip to her boss—who buys every gory second.

 

 

When
mass panic ensues, Leah learns the video is more than a staged
act…

 

 

The
government is calling the virus AM13. As the outbreak spreads,
citizens are forced to stay indoors while they assess the gravity of
the illness. Most people are quarantined in their homes, but Leah,
Jake, and Leah’s best friend Michelle are some of the unlucky few
who are stuck at work when the Lockdown occurs.

 

 

That’s
where she first encounters one of the infected…

 

 

Aside
from a contaminated woman devouring one of her co-workers, Leah has
another problem. Does she do as she’s ordered and stay at work? Or
should she disobey government orders and break free to reunite with
her family?

 

 

She
can’t go it alone—after all, Leah has none of the skills needed
to survive—but with Michelle and Jake by her side, not even a
contagious virus and a sea of the dead can keep her from…

 

 

Breaking
out of the Lockdown…

The
Jane Harvest
The
City Book 1
by
A Nicky Hjort
Genre:
SciFi Fantasy
 
Winning
battles means Ink honors, prestige, and life itself. …Yet nobody
understands what losing truly means.

 

 


On
another planet two hundred years in the future, twenty-one-year-old
Isla Jane struggles helplessly to figure out who she is and what her
world really means. Marked with a forbidden tattoo of the rising sun,
she is a natural champion of humanity and a gifted warrior in Heats–
lavish battles fought in the conjoined minds of the participants for
the morbid amusement of the masses.

 

 

Despite
Isla’s desire to fade into the background, she emerges as an
obvious leader of her people when the senseless assassination of a
youth forces her to face the truth. Her volatile world, disguised by
its elaborate battles and constant mayhem, is a prison without bars
and a coffin, the lid already half-closed, that they must
escape.

 

 

But
when she vows to find a way to bring her people back home, Isla will
have to deconstruct consciousness and the very nature of the space
time continuum to unravel good from evil, truth from lies, and
survival from true love.

 

 

Welcome
to the City–where it takes lives to save lives…

assassination squad hell-bent on eliminating him–and he has no idea
why he’s in their crosshairs. He’s saved only when an American
scientist intervenes, wielding strange technology that briefly
reactivates Jake’s dormant memories and deadly skills. As unknown
enemies continue to hound Jake’s every step, the scientist helps him
reconnect with lost friends and loved ones who believed him long
dead.

Any
happy reunion is forfeit, though, as Jake’s murky history and
mysterious talents conceal a terrible secret that–should it fall
into the wrong hands–could trigger the extinction of the human race.
Averting this apocalypse means Jake must risk everything to reawaken
his true self and stop an ancient order from unleashing humanity’s
ultimate judgment.

A
gifted boy forced to grow up too fast… A father who will do
anything to protect him… A madman bent on destroying them both.

In
Amsterdam, a visionary scientist is laying the groundwork for a
cybernetic life-extension project that will transfer individual
consciousness to a personalized avatar. Halfway around the world, his
brilliant grandson is secretly planning to use the same technology to
infiltrate the world’s most secure networks. But the scientific
advances necessary to perfect the brain-to-computer interface are
slow in coming, too slow for the aging founder of the Everlast
foundation–who may die before realizing his dream of
immortality–and too slow for his ruthless grandson, who will stop at
nothing to attain the recognition that is his birthright.

Caught
in the middle are Jake Bronson and his seven-year-old son, Alex,
whose combined mental gifts might provide the key to leapfrogging the
impasse.

When
Jake’s family and closest friends are simultaneously abducted in a
globally coordinated kidnapping scheme, he races across two
continents before uncovering the first clue to their whereabouts,
unaware that his hostage son and teenage siblings crash-landed in the
jungles of South China, where they must find every ounce of their
courage and wits to survive the wilds and escape the ruthless drug
lord who is hot on their heels. Can a seven-year-old boy learn to
kill to save his family?

Jake
Bronson’s family and friends are mourning him. They’d watched as he

Historical Romance
“Putney’s

 —Sabrina Jeffries
A Rogue Redeemed
As Washington burns,
Callista Brooke is trapped in the battle between her native England
and her adopted homeland. She is on the verge of losing everything,
including her life, when a handsome Englishman cuts through the
violent crowd to claim that she is his. Callie falls into her
protector’s arms, recognizing that he is no stranger, but the boy
she’d once loved, a lifetime ago.
Lord George Gordon
Audley had been Callie’s best friend, and it was to Gordon she
turned in desperation to avoid a loathsome arranged marriage. But the
repercussions of his gallant attempt to rescue her sent Callie
packing to Jamaica, and Gordon on a one way trip to the penal colony
of Australia.
Against all odds,
Gordon survived. Finding Callie is like reclaiming his tarnished
soul, and once again he vows to do whatever is necessary to protect
her and those she loves. But the innocent friendship they shared as
children has become a dangerous passion that may save or destroy them
when they challenge the aristocratic society that exiled them both….

On her own; wrecked and abandoned in an empty expanse of space for 53 years

Serengeti
by
J.B. Rockwell
Genre:
SciFi Adventure
 
It
was supposed to be an easy job: find the Dark Star Revolution
Starships, destroy them, and go home. But a booby-trapped vessel
decimates the Meridian Alliance fleet, leaving Serengeti—a Valkyrie
class warship with a sentient AI brain—on her own; wrecked and
abandoned in an empty expanse of space. 

 

 


On
the edge of total failure, Serengeti thinks only of her crew. She
herds the survivors into a lifeboat, intending to sling them into
space. But the escape pod sticks in her belly, locking the
cryogenically frozen crew inside.

 

 

Then
a scavenger ship arrives to pick Serengeti’s bones clean.

 

 

Her
engines dead, her guns long silenced, Serengeti and her last two
robots must find a way to fight the scavengers off and save the crew
trapped inside her.

Serengeti 2:
Dark and Stars
 
Fifty-three
years Serengeti drifted, dreaming in the depths of space. Fifty-three
years of patient waiting before her Valkyrie Sisters arrive to
retrieve her from the dark. A bittersweet homecoming follows, the
Fleet Serengeti once knew now in shambles, its admiral, Cerberus,
gone missing, leaving Brutus in charge. Brutus who’s subsumed the
Fleet, ignoring his duty to the Meridian Alliance to pursue a
vendetta against the Dark Star Revolution.

 

 


The
Valkyries have a plan to stop him—depose Brutus and restore the
Fleet’s purpose—and that plan involves Serengeti. Depends on
Serengeti turning her guns against her own.

 

 

Because
the Fleet can no longer be trusted. With Brutus in charge, it’s
just Serengeti and her Sisters, and whatever reinforcements they can
find.

 

 

A
top-to-bottom refit restores Serengeti to service, and after a rushed
reunion with Henricksen and her surviving crew, she takes off for the
stars. For Faraday—a prison station—to stage a jailbreak, and
free the hundreds of Meridian Alliance AIs wrongfully imprisoned in
its Vault. From there to the Pandoran Cloud and a rendezvous with her
Valkyrie Sisters. To retrieve a fleet of rebel ships stashed away
inside.

 

 

One
last battle, one last showdown with Brutus and his Dreadnoughts and
it all ends. A civil war—one half of the Meridian Alliance Fleet
turned against the other, with the very future of the Meridian
Alliance hanging in the balance.

Hecate
Prequel to Serengeti
 
Black
Ops—the intelligence arm of the Meridian Alliance Fleet came
calling with an offer Henricksen couldn’t refuse: a ship—an
entire squadron of ships, actually—and crew to command. A chance to
get back to the stars.
 

 

Too
bad he didn’t ask more questions before accepting the assignment.
Too bad no one told him just how dangerous this particular skunkworks
project was.


 

They
call the ship the RV-N: Reconnaissance Vessel – Non-combat, Raven for
short. A stealth ship—fast, and maneuverable, and brutal as hell.
On the surface, Henricksen’s assignment seems simple: train his crew,
run the RV-Ns through their paces, get the ships certified for
mission operations and job done. But an accident in training reveals
a fatal design flaw in the Raven, and when an undercover operative
steals classified information from a Black Ops facility, the Fleet
Brass cancels the tests completely, rushing the faulty ships and
their half-trained crew into live operations. On a mission to recover
the Fleet’s lost secrets.

 

 

Out
of time and out of options, Henricksen has no choice but to launch
his squadron. But a ghost from his past makes him question
everything—the ships, their AI, the entirety of this mission, right
down to the secrets he and his crew are supposed to recover.

Rockwell is a New Englander, which is important to note because it
means she’s (a) hard headed, (b) frequently stubborn, and (c) prone
to fits of snarky sarcasticness. As a kid she subsisted on a steady
diet of fairy tales, folklore, mythology augmented by generous
helpings of science fiction and fantasy. As a quasi-adult she dreamed
of being the next Indiana Jones and even pursued (and earned!) a
degree in anthropology. Unfortunately, those dreams of being an
archaeologist didn’t quite work out. Through a series of twists and
turns (involving cats, a marriage, and a SCUBA certification, amongst
other things) she ended up working in IT for the U.S. Coast Guard and
now writes the types of books she used to read. Not a bad ending for
an Indiana Jones wannabe…

He’ll Never Let You Go…

Friday, September 8th, 2017
Pretend You’re Safe
by Alexandra Ivy
Genre: Romantic Suspense
He Sees You
First came the
floods. Then came the bodies. The victims—strangled, then buried
along the shores of the Mississippi—have finally been unearthed,
years after they disappeared. He remembers every satisfying kill . .
. each woman’s terror and agony. But there’s only one he truly
wanted. And fate has brought her within reach again . . .
He Knows You
Jaci Patterson was
sixteen when she found the first golden locket on her porch. Inside
were a few strands of hair wrapped around a scrap of bloodstained
ribbon. Though the “gifts” kept arriving, no one believed her
hunch that a serial killer was at work. Now Jaci has returned home .
. . and the nightmare is starting once more.
And He’ll Never
Let You Go
Back then, Rylan
Cooper was an arrogant deputy sheriff convinced that Jaci was just an
attention-seeking teen. It was a fatal mistake. There’s a murderer
in their midst, someone determined to settle old scores and keep
playing a twisted game. And it won’t end until Jaci is his forever
. . .

Everyone knows, it takes a thief to catch a thief—or to seduce one

Thursday, September 7th, 2017
THE
FORGER
Elite
Crimes Unit #2
by
Michele Hauf

 

Genre: Romantic Suspense


Pub
Date: 8/8/2017
 

 

Olivia
Lawson’s bosses at Scotland Yard don’t take her work very
seriously. Art and antiquities? Bor-ing! But her latest
investigation, at London’s world-renowned Tate, is turning out to
be far more explosive than anyone expected. In fact, the vandalized,
booby-trapped painting hanging on the gallery wall would have blown
her off her feet if it wasn’t for the tall, dark-haired stranger
who tackled her at the last second—a stranger as finely sculpted as
any masterpiece in the museum.
Ethan
Maxwell is working this case for the Elite Crimes Unit because it was
a choice between that and lockup. A (barely) reformed art forger,
he’s got the expertise to lead Olivia through a dangerous manhunt.
But the crime may have a more personal connection to him—and the
all-too-real feelings he’s developing toward Olivia could pull her
into the line of fire too . . .

 

THE
THIEF
Elite
Crimes Unit #1
 
The
Elite Crimes Unit works behind the scenes of Interpol—and employs
some of the world’s most talented criminal minds. Because as
everyone knows, it takes a thief to catch a thief—or to seduce one
. . .
The
old farmhouse in the French countryside is a refuge for former jewel
thief Josephine Deveraux. Admittedly, there aren’t many men in the
vicinity, but she has her cat to cuddle up with. It’s a far cry
from her former life, constantly running from the law, and she’s
enjoying her peace . . . until the intruder in the three-piece suit
tackles her. He wants her back in the game, helping with a heist—and
he’s not above making threats to get his way.
Little
does Josephine know that notorious—and notoriously charming—thief,
Xavier Lambert, is after the very same 180-carat prize she’s being
blackmailed to steal. To his chagrin, he’s doing it not as a free
agent, but as a member of the Elite Crimes Unit—the team he was
forced to join when his brilliant career came to a sudden end. And
little does Xavier know that his comeback is about to include a
stranger’s kiss, a stinging slap, and a hunt for missing
treasure—along with the infuriatingly sexy woman who’s outfoxing
him . . .

Liv, disappears under mysterious circumstances

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017
Vanished?
By
Christer Tholin
Genre:
Mystery Crime Thriller
 
He
could only hope he’d get out of here in one piece.”

 

 


To
come to terms with his recent divorce, Martin, an attorney in Berlin,
plans a peaceful vacation – two weeks in a Swedish summer house
seem to be the solution. It won’t be peaceful, however, and those
two weeks will change his life forever. He takes a liking to Liv, a
Swedish woman whom he meets in the neighborhood. Unfortunately, they
don’t get to have their first date – Liv disappears under
mysterious circumstances. Martin begins his search but soon realizes
he can’t find Liv in a foreign country by himself. He hires two
private investigators, and their discoveries make everything seem
even stranger.

 

The
complexities in this suspenseful criminal case lead to a hunt across
Sweden. Martin comes close to finding answers, but his search lands
him in very real danger, eventually leading to the first deaths. Soon
he‘s wondering if he can get Liv and himself out of this situation
alive.

The
author grew up in the North of Germany, Schleswig-Holstein. Today, he
lives together with his family in Stockholm, Sweden, where he works
as management consultant.

 


Already
for ages he has been a great fan of crime stories and therefore, had
the desire to write his own crime story with the characters acting in
Sweden. This crime-fiction is now available under the title
“Vanished?”.

 

The
crime novel starts at a slower pace – like Martin’s holidays, but the
tension goes up more and more. It comes to a number of surprising
turns giving new impulses to the story. Apart from that, the lovely
country Sweden is described with the view of a foreigner.
