Distracted by heartbreak, he is caught off-guard by a military coup

Sunday, August 12th, 2018

 

Adam Gowans is the youngest of five Air Force brats, out of which his siblings have voted him the weirdest. He loves anything that deals with stories, including movies, novels, television dramas, music, video games, manga/manhwa, and webtoons.
In his mid-twenties, he lived and taught English in South Korea for four years before returning to the States to live, like many LDS authors, in Utah.
His first novel is On Angelic Wings, which has a planned sequel, but the sequel will be released after two other novels that are calling for his attention.

 

Ever since magic caused his mother’s death, Ha-Neul, crown prince of Balhae, hates witches and the magic they wield. He has instituted harsh laws against all magic users.
 

 

Lisa is a young witch working undercover as a servant in his palace, hoping to gain freedom for her people. The last thing the two expect is to fall in love. But when Ha-Neul learns that Lisa is not only a witch, but the daughter of the Prince of Vires, land of witches, he banishes her. Distracted by heartbreak, he is caught off-guard by a military coup.
In hiding and on the run, Ha-Neul swallows his pride and travels with his siblings to Vires, planning to beg Lisa’s aid, only to learn that she has mysteriously vanished.
Now his only hope in reclaiming his kingdom and reuniting with Lisa lies in the remote Northern Mountains, a country no one has ever penetrated and rumored home of a powerful magic source. There, Ha-Neul learns that a being powerful beyond comprehension has been carefully guiding his destiny. But if Ha-Neul can’t let go of his hatred of all things magic, and accept the new path offered to him, it will mean the destruction of his entire world.

the morning of her birthday.
In

rely on ex-best friend, Brandon Morris, for help.
But
as she will soon discover, Brandon has his own secrets. Some of which
defy logic and only add to the mystery surrounding Leah. And mix

what they really want, and what they must do.
Can
Brandon lighten the load on her by figuring out what or who wants her
dead? Or will their past history get in the way of the storm brewing

Beltane
the season for renewal of life, love and danger…

 

 

Step
into a world of magic and passion…

 

A
group of friends come together to dance the Maypole

 

 

Take
a dash of spice, a pinch of herbs

 

Soft
candlelight and resonant drums

 

Add
a flash of magic and watch the sparks fly

 

Toss
in a killer that’s targeting women…

 

 

To
the outside world she is just Leena Duncan. A gentle woman with a
troubled past, yet none know her full story. Her ability to control
the elements and her knowledge of plants make her magic strong and
unbreakable. It’s just too bad that she’s closed off her heart to
not risk it again, having learned that horrors are possible, even
with those who claim to love you. It only takes one man at the rainy
Beltane celebration to change her outlook, and one killer to endanger
her world.

 

Owen
Grey, a well-known fantasy author, has returned to his childhood home
to set down roots and reacquaint himself with old friends. Learning
that magic is, in fact, possible, the second revelation is the one
woman who calls to him: body, soul and heart. Even more surprising,
he learns that with a simple touch he can relieve pain and lift
emotional burdens, it just doesn’t help him deal with his own past.
While he may write about happily ever after, he knows it only as
fiction. Until her.

 

With
a killer targeting celebrants at these small pagan gatherings,
leaving two bodies in warning, this little group of friends who
welcomed him with open arms, are at risk if they don’t find the
killer.

Separated
by two different life styles yet their passion and magic ignite
sparks hotter than the Solstice heat. Can they work out a way to be
together as they try to stop a killer from striking again?

 

 

Kasey
is a woman that exudes energy and brightness; equally passionate when
angry or happy. Her energy comes through in all her magic, and she
often wishes she could rewrite her own story to become charming and
sophisticated enough to be with a certain wealthy male lawyer she
wants more than anything else.

 

 

Chris
is a force of strength and experience carefully hidden behind the
easy mannerisms he has adopted. There is nothing he cannot do with
his magic and he has tried all of it, whether right or wrong. His
fortune has left him wanting for nothing in life except the one thing
money can’t buy, the woman he feels too unclean to approach.

Armed with magic and a plan for the Lammas
festival they are determined to stop the killer from harming anyone
again. And Steven will, with a plan of his own, persuade Rachel that
they are meant to be together.
Will the magic allow them to
start anew?
Rachel is a woman that lives carefree with a
buoyant recklessness. She loves being a flirt and has spent many
years indulging that side of her personality. Her energy draws
others; her character is to protect all those that cannot protect
themselves. When she’s not riding on life, she is helping children
less fortunate then herself.
Steven is man that gives
more than his energy usually allows. He is a highly-respected
pediatrician that always goes that extra step to ensure all in his
care are receiving his utmost attention. He often sacrifices sleep to
spend time with his friends, and he can’t seem to help affably
chasing the skirt of the one woman that breaks his easy-going charm
and makes him forget he’s supposed to be the jovial. He hides his
strength in body and magic, never letting others know that he is more
than the carefree man with everything he needs.
Armed
with magic and a plan for the Lammas festival as a group they are
determined to stop the killer from harming anyone again. With a plan
of his own, Steven decides he’s done waiting for Rachel to see that
they’re meant to be together and takes things into his own hands.

In search of a killer
targeting their kind.
The Mabon gathering brings this
group of special friends together to use their powers to unmask the
killer and prevent more victims, before moving to the celebration of
the season.
Coralee has always lived her life with a
small remove: her ability to feel other’s emotions has kept her
guarded and alone. After reeling from the killer’s emotional
tumult, her friends are concerned and looking to protect – none
more than Dade.
His ability to call emotions and
reactions with his drums leaves Dade singularly placed to draw the
killer forward, but his concerns is only for Coralee. Always drawn to
her, his past history with women leave him wondering if she ever
could take a chance on him. A gathering that could change everything
by catching the killer just may bring a new love to light.

is a man that has lived a violent life undercover in all the wrong
places, for too long. His light charm carefully keeps others from
seeing the dangerous man that lies inside. He is the first for
justice and will go out of his way to keep the innocent safe. He

she survives, she will have to learn to live with the scars for the
rest of her life. In hiding she has to rebuild the strength to get

constantly aggravate her and make her want things she may never have
again.
When Patrick’s cover is blown and he is badly
injured, the group of friends pull together to keep him and the
recovering victim of a killer safe. As a result, the group of twelve
become targets of the criminals after Patrick and have to live
together in a safe house for Yule.

Jacqueline
Paige lives in Ontario in a small town that’s part of the popular
Georgian Triangle area. 

 

 

 

She
began her writing career in 2006 and since her first published works
in 2009 she hasn’t stopped. Jacqueline describes her writing as “all
things paranormal”, which she has proven is her niche with
stories of witches, ghosts, physics and shifters now on the
shelves. 

 

 

When
Jacqueline isn’t lost in her writing she spends time with her five
children, most of whom are finally able to look after her instead of
the other way around. Together they do random road trips, that
usually end up with them lost, shopping trips where they push every
button in the toy aisle, hiking when there’s enough time to escape
and bizarre things like creating new daring recipes in the kitchen.
She’s a grandmother to four (so far) and looks forward to corrupting
many more in the years to come.

It is the story of a young man, Cage, who has taken the responsibility of protecting a woman and her daughter, Kristall. After her husband died drunk, Anadalune raised Cage as his own mother when his real mother wanted (more…)
