The world didn’t end in fire and explosions…

Lying
in Ruins
Fate’s Vultures #1
by Jami Gray
Genre: Post-Apocalyptic
Romantic Suspense 
 

In a world gone to
hell, it’s hard to tell the good guys from the bad…

The world didn’t end in
fire and explosions, instead it collapsed slowly, like falling
dominoes, an intensifying panic of disease, food shortages, wild
weather and collapsing economies, until what remained of humanity
battles for survival in a harsh new reality.
Charity
uses lethal survival skills learned too early in her work as a
‘Hound, sniffing out pivotal secrets for one of the most powerful
people on the west coast. Her work is deceptive, deadly, and best
performed solo, which means when she has a run-in with a member of
the notorious Fate’s Vultures, she has no intention of joining forces
in some mockery of teamwork. The man might be sexy as hell, but she
travels alone. She will accomplish her mission and she will settle a
score – hopefully with the edge of her blade. But fate has other
plans.
As
one of Fate’s Vultures, a nomadic band of arbitrators known for
their ruthless verdicts, Ruin witnesses the carnage of corruption and
greed battering the remnants of humanity, and he bears the scars to
prove it. Now he has a damn ‘Hound showing up in suspicious
circumstances, leaving every cell of his body sceptical – and
painfully aroused. The woman is trouble, and Ruin has every intention
of steering clear. But when they realise they have a common enemy,
Charity and Ruin will have to set aside their distrust if they want
to achieve their mutual goal – justice and revenge.
Sometimes,
when the world’s gone to hell, it’s better to stick with the devil
you know…

For Mercy
Fate’s
Vultures #2
 
Choosing
a side has never been so dangerous…
 
The
world didn’t end in fire and explosions, instead it collapsed
slowly, like falling dominoes, an intensifying panic of disease, food
shortages, wild weather and collapsing economies, until what remains
of humanity battles for survival in a harsh new reality.
An
assassin by trade, a loner by nature, Mercy is sent to infiltrate the
Cartels and unmask the identity of their new silent partner. Instead,
she discovers a darker plan threatening to crumble the entire
Southwest and ends up with a hefty bounty on her head. Still, she’s
determined to stop the impending attack at any cost, even if it means
partnering up with a member of the notorious Fate’s Vultures.
After
enduring a brutal, blood-soaked lesson on the savagery of
civilisation’s scavengers, Havoc is well acquainted with the
consequences of battling predators. But as a member of the nomadic
band of arbitrators known as Fate’s Vultures, he’s determined to
cement the necessary alliances to oust the biggest threat looming on
the horizon. When an enigmatic woman crosses his path, her secrets
and troubling loyalty light the fuse on an unexpected craving and his
insatiable curiosity.
In
order to trap a common foe and derail an impending threat, Havoc and
Mercy must turn the tables to hunt a predator. Can an assassin and a
mercenary find their balance on the thin line of loyalty, or will it
snap under the weight of their wary hearts?

Deaths and honors, joys and agonies, intrigues and escapes await her

Tuesday, February 27th, 2018
A CHOICE OF CROWNS
A Dark Glass Novel
Book #2
by
Barb Hendee
Genre: Historical Fantasy

 

Olivia Geroux knew her king was
reluctant to marry her, whatever the negotiations had arranged. But
she never expected to find handsome, arrogant King Rowan obsessed
with his stepsister instead. And before she can determine what course
to take, she overhears her greatest ally plotting to murder the
princess.
Olivia must act quickly-and live with
whatever chaos results. As the assassin hunts his prey, a magic
mirror appears to show Olivia the three paths that open before her .
. .
If she hesitates only a moment, the
princess will die-and she will become queen.
If she calls for help, she will gain
great power-but she must also thrust away her own happiness.
If she runs to stop the murder herself,
she will know love and contentment-but her whole country will
suffer.
As she lives out each path, her wits
and courage will be tested as she fights to protect her people, her
friends, and her heart. And deciding which to follow will be far from
easy . . .
THROUGH A DARK GLASS
A
Dark Glass Novel Book 1
On her seventeenth birthday, Megan of
Chaumont discovers she’ll be sold as a bride to the brutish
Volodane family-within hours. Her father grants only that she may
choose which one of the ruthless, grasping lord’s three sons she
weds:
Rolf, the eldest: stern, ambitious, and
loyal?
Sebastian, the second son: sympathetic,
sly, and rebellious?
Or Kai, the youngest: bitter, brooding,
and proud?
As shy, horrified Megan flees the
welcome dinner for her in-laws-to-be, she finds an enchanted mirror
that will display how her life unrolls with each man, as if she were
living it out in a breath. But there is no smooth “happily ever
after” in her choices.
Deaths and honors, joys and agonies,
intrigues and escapes await her in a remote, ramshackle keep, where
these rough but complex men reveal one side and then another of their
jagged characters-and bring forth new aspects of Megan, too. But
the decisions of one teenaged marriage-pawn reverberate much farther
than any of them have guessed . . .

Christa Paige
Genre:
Paranormal Romance
177
pages
 
A-Fourteen
has been wasting away in a dungeon for decades. Tortured for years in
the name of science, he was stripped of everything—including his
name. Scientists want to know the secret to the Kan Asma Vampires’
longevity, but there’s no way they’ll make him talk. They’ve
tried everything, but he’d rather die than betray his
people. 

 

 

When
they bring the frightened scientist into his cell, he is unimpressed
with their newest tactic. The moment he tastes the blood of that
unsuspecting woman, his entire world is turned upside down. Mariyah
touches him with kindness and manages to shatter his resistance.
Because of her, A-Fourteen feels more alive than he has in years. She
promises to try and save him. But can he trust her?

 

 

Mariyah’s
life takes a deadly turn when her blood becomes the key to the
Lifespan Institute’s fountain of youth. When she is left to bleed
out in the cell of a vampire prisoner, the last thing she expects is
to survive. A-Fourteen shows her mercy by not killing her…and
Mariyah ends up giving him her heart. If she fails him, he will die,
and his blood will be on her hands, staining her soul.

 

 

Now
she needs to protect herself while trying to rescue the love of her
life. When she forms an alliance with the Kan Asma refugees, she
plays a dangerous game of double agent. She knows the risks, and she
also knows time is running out.

 

Mariyah
will do anything to save A-Fourteen and set him free…even if it
means sacrificing herself to give him a chance to live.

Writing
and reading are my passions! My dream to be a writer began, when as a
five year old child I would ask my mother to write down the stories I
would make up about talking dogs. 

 

 

Since
growing up and becoming further educated with a Bachelor’s Degree in
English (I have an affinity for classic literature), a Master’s
Degree in Leadership, and a degree in Ultrasound, I have begun to
pursue that dream in hopes of one day making it my career. I have
many interests and ideas so my ultimate goal is to release works of
fiction in multiple genres. Fantasy will always be my first love
however, as I have always had an intense imagination that threatens
to inundate me if not expelled onto paper.

 

 

I
currently have six published books: an ongoing fantasy series with
four installments so far (and a fifth one coming soon!), a fantasy
short story, and a suspense/thriller short story. Several of my books
have won awards, but the first book in my fantasy series, The Grey
Eyed Storm: The Occuli, Book One, has now won 7 wonderful awards
which is very exciting!

 

 

Aside
from writing, I enjoy physical activities like running and yoga. I am
blessed to have an amazing family, close friends and two beloved
canine companions.

The best and worst parts of Jude Gallagher’s life collide as myth meets reality

Thursday, February 22nd, 2018
Firebloods
by
Casey Hays
Genre:
YA Paranormal Romance
326
pages
 
Jude
Gallagher thought she was crazy.

 

 

It
all started when the boy next door made her hear music—inside her
head. All the time.

 

 

It
was torture.

 

 

She
didn’t think things could get worse. But then one hot summer, her
best friend Kane O’Reilly decides to tell her how he really feels
about her. Music inside her head? That’s nothing compared what
happens next.

 

 

Things
only turn stranger when she and her lab partner Frankie Melmack begin
a project to prove the existence of the Vatra u Krvi—a race of
people tied to the mythical Phoenix. Add in a neglectful mother and a
magic ring, and the insanity that defines Jude’s life is pretty
well complete.

 

 

Heat
surges across the Nevada desert, and the best and worst parts of Jude
Gallagher’s life collide as myth meets reality. In the middle of
the chaos, she begins to hear more than just music. And she has to
wonder…

 

 

Maybe…
just maybe… she really is crazy after all.

Firebloods is the first book I’ve ever taken out on tour. Based on the legend of the Phoenix, this book is probably one of my favorites. All of my books are very character-driven rather than plot-driven, and this book is sort of an interactive read, where my main character, Jude Gallagher, draws readers right into the story, up close and personal. She’s a seventeen year old girl whose father was brutally killed in a wildlife attack five years ago. Her mother has never recovered from his death, sinking into a clinical depression and staying there to this day. So Jude has fended for herself since she was 12. She’s a gifted pianist, but she hasn’t played a note since her father’s death. But she’s full of an inner-strength she doesn’t recognize, and this has allowed her to overcome her obstacles.

Enter her gang of friends: These four people are Jude’s rock. They’ve been there for her when her mother hasn’t, and she wouldn’t have survived without them. Let’s break them down:

Kane O’Reilly is very confident, but not cocky. He’s gorgeous with distinctive dimples, jet black hair and emerald green eyes, all of which attract a lot of female attention, but Jude stole his heart ages ago over an alphabet assignment in kindergarten. He’s waiting for her to realize that she loves him. He’s into motorcycles and cooking, and he has a huge secret he’s never shared with these four friends.

Jonas Cameron has known Jude since toddlerhood when their mothers commuted together during nursing school. Strong and trustworthy, athletic and kind of a little teddy bear with a wild heart, this blond-haired, blue-eyed boy is always there when Jude needs a friend. He’s really like a brother to her.

Devan Parker is Jonas’s girlfriend. She’s a cheerleader with a thing for fashion. Spontaneous, fun-loving and always ready for some excitement, she’s never afraid to speak her mind, which sometimes gets the rest of them into a bind. Her carefree attitude balances Jude’s much more conservative personality.

Frankie Melmack is the genius in the bunch. Frizzy, flyaway hair and glasses, she’ll likely graduate from college within six months of graduating from high school. For all her education, she’s a firm believer in the supernatural, which is a paradox. She and Jude have been friends since 7th grade when they were thrown together as lab partners. Currently, they are working on a summer project to prove the existence of the Vatra u Krvi, aka Firebloods- a race of people purportedly created with Phoenix blood. This project opens the door to a mythical world neither girl ever imagined.

We can’t forget about Rylin McDowell- a red-headed, hazel-eyed Irish boy who somehow makes Jude hear music inside her head. He’s a mystery she can’t quite figure out. But she will.

The world didn’t end in fire and explosions…

Lying
in Ruins
Fate’s Vultures #1
by Jami Gray
Genre: Post-Apocalyptic
Romantic Suspense 
 

In a world gone to
hell, it’s hard to tell the good guys from the bad…

The world didn’t end in
fire and explosions, instead it collapsed slowly, like falling
dominoes, an intensifying panic of disease, food shortages, wild
weather and collapsing economies, until what remained of humanity
battles for survival in a harsh new reality.
Charity
uses lethal survival skills learned too early in her work as a
‘Hound, sniffing out pivotal secrets for one of the most powerful
people on the west coast. Her work is deceptive, deadly, and best
performed solo, which means when she has a run-in with a member of
the notorious Fate’s Vultures, she has no intention of joining forces
in some mockery of teamwork. The man might be sexy as hell, but she
travels alone. She will accomplish her mission and she will settle a
score – hopefully with the edge of her blade. But fate has other
plans.
As
one of Fate’s Vultures, a nomadic band of arbitrators known for
their ruthless verdicts, Ruin witnesses the carnage of corruption and
greed battering the remnants of humanity, and he bears the scars to
prove it. Now he has a damn ‘Hound showing up in suspicious
circumstances, leaving every cell of his body sceptical – and
painfully aroused. The woman is trouble, and Ruin has every intention
of steering clear. But when they realise they have a common enemy,
Charity and Ruin will have to set aside their distrust if they want
to achieve their mutual goal – justice and revenge.
Sometimes,
when the world’s gone to hell, it’s better to stick with the devil
you know…

Choosing
a side has never been so dangerous…
 
The
world didn’t end in fire and explosions, instead it collapsed
slowly, like falling dominoes, an intensifying panic of disease, food
shortages, wild weather and collapsing economies, until what remains
of humanity battles for survival in a harsh new reality.
An
assassin by trade, a loner by nature, Mercy is sent to infiltrate the
Cartels and unmask the identity of their new silent partner. Instead,
she discovers a darker plan threatening to crumble the entire
Southwest and ends up with a hefty bounty on her head. Still, she’s
determined to stop the impending attack at any cost, even if it means
partnering up with a member of the notorious Fate’s Vultures.
After
enduring a brutal, blood-soaked lesson on the savagery of
civilisation’s scavengers, Havoc is well acquainted with the
consequences of battling predators. But as a member of the nomadic
band of arbitrators known as Fate’s Vultures, he’s determined to
cement the necessary alliances to oust the biggest threat looming on
the horizon. When an enigmatic woman crosses his path, her secrets
and troubling loyalty light the fuse on an unexpected craving and his
insatiable curiosity.
In
order to trap a common foe and derail an impending threat, Havoc and
Mercy must turn the tables to hunt a predator. Can an assassin and a
mercenary find their balance on the thin line of loyalty, or will it
snap under the weight of their wary hearts?

New

the first epic fantasy adventure in the Dragon Born Trilogy. 

 

 

 

Time
is running out for half-blood, Rowen, a lady-in-waiting to a
princess. While the two princes of the Dragon Court vie for her
affection, she spends her days and nights dreaming of a future free
from prejudice based on her lineage. The half-blood is not who she
appears to be. As a prophet, she knows what the fate of the realm
holds, and it’s not the grand parties the kingdom is used to. 

 

 

 

Death
is on the horizon, and Rowen sees herself as its cause. 

 

 

 

The
taunts of her sleepless nights are realized when she is framed and
sentenced to death for the prince’s murder. For a human, there’s
nowhere to run and no one to turn to in a kingdom where power is
tightly held by full-blooded dragon shifters. 

 

 

 

It
will take a stranger from the shadows to save Rowen from an unjust
execution and reveal a truth full of terrifying potential. She must
face her fears, navigate through dangerous lands of magical
creatures, and find the courage to accept her fate, awaken her gift,
and set the world on fire.

Magic.
Betrayal. Dragons. The epic coming of age adventure continues, but
this time the stakes are higher than ever. 

 

New York
Times bestselling author K.N. Lee brings you all this and more in the
sequel to the #1 international bestseller, “Half-Blood
Dragon.”

 

Rowen is on the run. Convicted of a murder
she didn’t commit, a last-minute surprise rescue from the gallows by
the notorious pirate Elian Westin should have brought her a measure
of freedom, if not peace. Instead, Rowen has more enemies than
ever…and more questions.
The royal navy of Withrae is on her
heels to bring her to justice, and her erstwhile savior Captain
Westin wants her back because he believes she is the key to finding
the legendary Red Dragon, a creature so powerful that it can change
the course of time.
Hunted by dragon shifters who despise her
and feared by humans who don’t understand her, half-blood dragon
Rowen must unravel old mysteries in order to outsmart new
adversaries. She can only hope that her new, uncontrollable magical
abilities don’t get her killed before she can confront the man who
set all of this in motion…

 

 

 

…a
man who hates her but will do anything to save her life.

The world’s fate rests on
the shoulders of one half-blood Dragon. They killed the prince she
loved, framed her for his murder, and still want to see her dead.
But, none of that matters when she is taken by the infamous Red
Dragon. Rowen now finds herself without hope, a plan for escape, or
her memory. Ancient secrets are revealed during her captivity, and a
strange black Dragon risks his life to save her. When he finds
himself injured and also kept in the Red Dragon’s lair, the two of
them must find a way to survive.
Captain Elian Westin
and what remains of his crew make the journey to Withrae where a war
is brewing. Dragons versus humans. Which side will they choose? The
answer isn’t as simple as Elian thinks when he is brought
face-to-face with the woman who broke his heart. The rules are no
longer as simple as he once believed when the fate of his daughter
and her mother are left in his hands.
But, in Draconia,
things are rarely what they seem, and the origins of a curse are
revealed.

one bizarre turn after the next. The woman, Verona Maxwell, shares
fingerprints with Paige Fischer, a little girl who died over fifteen

of making sense of the present. But the more she digs, the darker the
reality becomes. Systemic abuse by Paige and parental neglect rise to
the surface, making her wonder if the past isn’t as buried as
everyone was led to believe.

Geek and Things, is a clean, cozy murder mystery that will keep you glued to its pages from beginning to end. I enjoyed the tale and the telling and found Geeks and Things the most entertaining book of its genre. The plot is strong and the timing perfect to keep you going to the next page. It is well written with a great line of characters. It’s a great book to have in any library, adult even YA.

Kalina Greystone takes over her father’s store…Geeks and things after his death. She has returned to her birthplace, the small town of Ellesworth, with a degree but without a husband. At the town annual Solstice Fair, a well-known old woman dies by poison. Her nephew witnesses the death and so she arrived there soon afterwards. Her keen attention to details spurred her into the middle of the investigation by none other than her old flame, Detective Harper.

Tabetha Waite
Genre:
Historical Romance
277
pages
 
A
missing heirloom. A stolen inheritance. Can love conquer
mistrust?

 

 

Athena
Hawthorne never imagined that she would lose everything she’d ever
had. But after the death of her father, his prosperous jewelry store
is sold off to pay his supposed debts. Athena, now destitute, embarks
on a mission to discover the truth, but circumstances force her to
accept an offer from a handsome stranger to work as a governess.
She’s determined to clear her father’s name, but a certain earl is
making matters far more difficult than necessary. And she can’t be in
danger of losing her heart to a member of the aristocracy…

 

 

Orion
Ashcroft, the Earl of Rockford, is convinced that Athena is a
grasping thief who stole a priceless family heirloom, the rare
sapphire known as the Couleur Magnifique. When he offers her the
position of governess to his sister’s children, he only intends to
catch her in some nefarious scheme and get back the sapphire-his
grandmother’s dying wish. But he soon discovers that keeping his
distance-and his sanity-around the beautiful Athena isn’t as easy
as he’d planned. It certainly doesn’t help that his sister and his
best friend plead her innocence at every frustrating turn. Soon he’s
struggling between honoring his promise and his growing attraction to
Athena.

 

 

But
there’s danger closer than either expect. Even a masquerade can’t
hide Athena from the curiosity of the ton forever…and there’s a
threat hiding among the highest members of society…

Torn
from the only man she’d ever loved by a tragic secret, Mara Miller
has traveled a long and difficult road. From poverty and the
workhouses, she’s finally made a life for herself as the owner of a
small haberdashery in London. With her companion, Big B, an African
slave she’d helped escape from a Brazilian slaver, she’s made a fresh
start. But when the past walks into her shop-in the form of the
ever-handsome Roarke Garrott, Viscount Eversleigh-Mara feels her
whole world crash to her feet. Thrust back into a web of lies,
deceit, and manipulation, Mara is forced to face the one man she’d
sworn to forget.

 

 

For
the past seven years, Roarke had sequestered himself in India to
mourn Mara’s death. Vowing to move on and put the past behind him, he
returns to London, only to find himself gazing into those beautiful
green eyes he believed he’d never see again. Now he’s found
her-
alive and
trying to deny who she was. A million feelings wash over him. Joy.
Fury. Heartbreak. He would have the truth from her-of where she’d
gone, and why-but when trouble from the past finds Mara and Big B,
the truth becomes secondary to saving Mara’s life. After just
learning that the woman he’d loved is alive, Roarke is not about to
lose her again…

Brandy Nacole
Genre:
Urban Fantasy
801
pages
 
I
must dare to be different in a world where I’m unwelcome in order
to save the one person left in my life, my half-sister Addie. 

 

This
deluxe boxed set contains the complete Bestselling Shadow World
Trilogy (Uniquely Unwelcome, Blood Burdens, and Sacrifice: A New
Dawn). 

 

Enjoy
the thrill as power is pushed to its limit, hearts are broken, and
some pay the ultimate price as Racquel fights an ancient evil that is
determined to make the Earth bleed, and Racquel with it.

 

The
box set includes:
Uniquely
Unwelcome
The
Shadow World Volume 1
Racquel
is unique. The bloodlines of four of the most powerful beings in the
Shadow World are intertwined within her DNA. She has never craved
attention. She just wants to be able to live as normal life as she
can. But she’s about to find that even though she’s uniquely
unwelcome wherever she goes, her abilities also make her the best
chance the Shadow World has to stop a threat to all the Shadow races.
Once arriving home, Racquel finds that greater evils exist and that
the person she cares for most in this world, her half-sister Addie,
has been kidnapped along with other Shadow World beings. Racquel
finds herself facing horrible odds with those who would rather see
her dead than alive. As her journey continues, Racquel learns more
about herself, what she is capable of, and that not every being looks
at her as an abomination. Coy, a human captive that Racquel saves
from the Vampires, starts showing kindness toward her. Racquel tries
putting distance between her and the human boy but as they spend more
time together it becomes harder and harder for Racquel to fight the
affection she wants and needs. But will Coy’s friendship and her new
found discoveries be enough to help Racquel unravel the strangest
mystery that has ever plagued the Shadow World?
Blood
Burdens
The
Shadow World Trilogy Volume 2
As
someone with four Shadow bloodlines, Racquel is uniquely unwelcome
even among her fellow werewolves, shape-shifters, vampires, and
witches. Growing up, she was bullied and tormented for being a
“hybrid,” a condition frowned upon by Shadow society. After
saving her sister and a number of other kidnapped Shadows from a
diabolical plot to create a Shadow army, many have found a new
respect for Racquel, but she is far from accepted in Shadow society,
and the evil is far from over. To complicate matters, Racquel now
finds herself torn between two brothers. Coy is caring and has helped
Racquel through her struggles, and Micah, who Racquel has only met
once but who is somehow, having dream conversations with him. Racquel
becomes torn between following her heart while breaking it at the
same time. In the second installment of the Shadow World series,
Racquel and her sister Addie face off with the Shadow leaders against
a threat that could bring the world to its knees. Power will be
pushed to its limit, hearts will be broken, and some will pay the
ultimate price as Racquel and her group of Shadows fight against an
ancient evil that is determined to make the earth bleed and Racquel
with it.
Sacrifice:
A New Dawn
The
Shadow World Trilogy Book 3
Racquel
was once uniquely unwelcome, an outcast in both the human and Shadow
worlds. In desperation, the Shadows—the loose alliance of Vampires,
Werewolves, Witches, Shape Shifters and Faeries—turned to Racquel
for help against the sorceress Cerelia, who threatened all Shadows.
Now that Racquel has protected the Shadows by defeating Cerelia, it
seems like things are picking up. Racquel is ready to challenge the
Shadows’ Ruling Council on the injustice of the laws that made her
and her family outcasts among the Shadows, and which is causing
suffering among her friends. Racquel has little time to enjoy her
victory. Micah, an innocent subjected to experiments by Cerelia and
now the only other person in the world like Racquel, is summoned to
appear before the Ruling Council to be examined. The Council has
already warned that if Micah is deemed to be “unclean” and a
threat to the Shadows, he will be executed. And there are agendas
hidden in agendas, as well. A secret faction wants to challenge
Racquel, who they still see as being an unclean creature due to her
mixed-Shadow heritage. Worse still, the mysterious prophecy made by
Kaya, queen of the Fay, is about to become true, and Racquel is about
to be faced with her deepest fear: that she is still unwelcome in the
world. Betrayed trust and a new danger to the Shadow world are
waiting for Racquel, and in the end, she may have to make the
ultimate sacrifice in order to save the world and her friends from
destruction.

In
the middle of a late summertime heatwave, a woman Poppy interviewed
for an article on paganism is found with a dagger buried in her chest
in the woods out near Alex’s house. Initially, Stephen and Craig are
given the case, but when Derek determines that this murder shouldn’t
be their first big case together, Alex and Poppy are brought in to
help.

 

 

But
Stephen has never liked Poppy, and tensions quickly begin to run high
between the two sets of partners. The Sunset Ridge police force can’t
afford to have infighting if they want to solve this case before a
fear of witches takes hold in town.

 

 

It
doesn’t take long before everyone reaches their breaking point and
Alex wonders if he will be a Sunset Ridge police officer for much
longer. Life is about to change for him and Poppy, but will that
change mean the end of his time in town?

 

For
three years, Poppy and Alex have worked together solving cases in
their small town of Sunset Ridge, first as just co-workers but later
as partners in nearly every sense of the word. Now they’re about to
take the final step and become husband and wife, but in the midst of
getting ready for what folks around town are calling the wedding of
the year, the murder of someone involved in the preparations makes
their plans go awry.
Samuel
Morrow, the kind man who has run Morrow’s Jewelers for over twenty
years, is found murdered in an apparent break-in, and there’s no
shortage of suspects who may have had a reason to kill him. Oddly
enough, something very valuable to Poppy and Alex is missing from his
store too. Is the theft connected to the murder?

 

 

As
they hunt for Samuel’s killer, carefully eliminating suspect after
suspect, they must juggle cake tastings and reception planning, as
all the while someone’s watching their favorite amateur sleuth. Will
Poppy and Alex solve the case and reach the altar, or will the killer
make their ever after far less than happy?

The
Finest Hour
Poppy
McGuire Mysteries Book 7
 

The Poppy Mcguire Serie…The Eleventh Hour, is a really imaginative mystery that is entertaining and a great beginning to a mystery series. I enjoyed the reading and the tale. The twists and characters seem good and real. I would have enjoyed it even better if it was a bit more polish. Some repetitions and a few extra words here and there slowed down the reading a touch. Still I have a great time reading the Poppy Mcguire Serie…The Eleventh Hour. All and all it is good beginning story for a beginning author. I hope to see more from this author providing the books are a bit more edit.

Poppy Mcguire is a thirty something single woman living in an old fashion town who frown upon it. She has a nose to find details that the police over look and has a great instinct about people. When the murder of a wealthy woman shakes her sleepy town, everyone looks up to her to find who did it. All is well with the investigation until the past and future collides and she and her new friend are stuck in the middle. Old crushes, new friends and a killer that could be any of them are mingled and crossed through the pages of this tale.

Dark Mirror Image, Book four of my standalone Royal Romance Series, is fresh out of the press. Enjoy the darkish and beautiful story of two faraway kingdom with the most unusual problem.

King Keban didn’t realize that gazing upon Princess Arianne was punishable by death. Saldil was the kingdom that piqued his curiosity, and the sole reason he had accepted this visit. Her brother, the king, gave him another option—Now he will return home to Perjha with the princess as his wife. He wonders at the turn of events, but only for a small moment. After staying there for a night, filled with hair-curling cries and dreadful noises coming from her brother’s chamber, he could never leave her in that place…not even for his kingdom.

Arianne liked King Keban the moment their eyes met. She is no longer so sure when her brother announces that Keban demanded to marry her, or he would attack Saldil. Who is this man with two faces? And why won’t he tell anyone that they are married? She will have to keep both eyes on this king and this most unusual arrangement.

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

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.

A dark world that make him questioning the true nature of humanity

SINthetic
The
New Lyons Sequence #1
by
J.T. Nicholas
Genre: Science Fiction – Cyberpunk Noir

 

Pub
Date: 1/23/2018

 

The Artificial Evolution
They look like us. Act like us. But
they are not human. Created to perform the menial tasks real humans
detest, Synths were designed with only a basic intelligence and
minimal emotional response. It stands to reason that they have no
rights. Like any technology, they are designed for human convenience.
Disposable.
In the city of New Lyons, Detective
Jason Campbell is investigating a vicious crime: a female body found
mutilated and left in the streets. Once the victim is identified as a
Synth, the crime is designated no more than the destruction of
property, and Campbell is pulled from the case.
But when a mysterious stranger
approaches Campbell and asks him to continue his investigation in
secret, Campbell is dragged into a dark world of unimaginable
corruption. One that leaves him questioning the true nature of
humanity.
And what he discovers is only the
beginning . . .
J.T. Nicholas was born in
Lexington, Virginia, though within six months he moved (or was moved,
rather) to Stuttgart, Germany. Thus began the long journey of the
military brat, hopping from state to state and country to country
until, at present, he has accumulated nearly thirty relocations. This
experience taught him that, regardless of where one found oneself,
people were largely the same. When not writing, Nick spends his time
practicing a variety of martial arts, playing games (video, tabletop,
and otherwise), and reading everything he can get his hands on. Nick
currently resides in Louisville, Kentucky, with his wife, a pair of
indifferent cats, a neurotic Papillion, and an Australian Shepherd
who (rightly) believes he is in charge of the day-to-day affairs.

Fantasy, Magic Realism

pages
 
Rosewood
Manor has been ashes for weeks.

 

 


Left
with no post and no home, Anne Tinning never expected to find herself
in a luxurious carriage, dressed in the finest of clothes, pretending
to be the wife of Lord August Grey. The search for Miss Bellingham,
however, will require them to blend into the very height of London
society, a class Anne has only ever served, and which August
despises. But August insists that the ruse is the only way. For
although they’ve vanquished the wraith that called for August’s
life, they will never be safe unless they find a way to stop the
woman he scorned.

 

 

There
are traces of Lily Bellingham the length and breadth of London, but
when Anne and August investigate the gruesome disappearances in a
factory she has just purchased, they realize that Lily is more
powerful than either of them. And she has devised a new way to take
her revenge.

 

 

With
another curse placed upon August’s head, Anne must find a way to
defeat Lily, and this time, she will have no help from the young man
she has grown to love. This time, the curse is more insidious,
twisting him into someone unrecognizable.

 

 

This
time, August Grey is the one she must fear.

 

 

Lush,
lyrical, and layered in horror-filled suspense, Of Bells and Thorns
evokes the feel of classic Gothic literature, blending the magic of a
beautiful fairy tale against the rich backdrop of history.

The
day Anne Tinning turns seventeen, birds fall from the sky. But that’s
hardly the most upsetting news. She’s being dismissed from the home
she’s served at since she was a child, and shipped off to become the
newly hired parlor maid for a place she’s never heard of. And when
she sees the run-down, isolated house, she instantly knows
why:

 

 

There’s
something wrong with Rosewood Manor.

 

 

Staffed
with only three other servants, all gripped by icy silence and
inexplicable bruises, and inhabited by a young master who is as cold
as the place itself, the house is shrouded in neglect and thick with
fear. Her questions are met with hushed whispers, and she soon finds
herself alone in the empty halls, left to tidy and clean rooms no one
visits.

 

 

As
the feeling of being watched grows, she begins to realize there is
something else in the house with them–some creature that stalks the
frozen halls and claws at her door. A creature that seems intent on
harming her.

 

 

When
a fire leaves Anne trapped in the manor with its Master, she finally
demands to know why. But as she forces the truth about what haunts
the grounds from Lord Grey, she learns secrets she isn’t prepared
for. The creature is very real, and she’s the only one who can help
him stop it.

 

 

Now,
Anne must either risk her life for the young man she’s grown to
admire, or abandon her post while she still can.
