Shadow
World Trilogy Boxed Set
by
Brandy Nacole
Genre:
Urban Fantasy
 
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.

Nora
and her two best friends, Liv and Charlie, aren’t like most people.
Nora is the private school kid; the rich girl, though everyone hates
her. Liv and Charlie attend the run-down public school on the

never collided, but they had one common factor that brought them
together, murder.

 

 

In
an online mystery chat room, the three girls meet and decide to form
The Murder Club. Each week one of the girls must come up with a
murder scenario for the other two to solve. It’s fun. It’s

When
one of Nora’s classmates ends up dead, she’s suspicious of her
new friends. His death mirrors the very same scenario Nora came up
with in their previous meeting. As clues emerge, pointing more
definitively at the members of the Murder Club, Nora begins digging
for her own clues, bringing fantasy to reality. Could Liv and Charlie
be involved, and if so why?

were all curious. Was one of them too curious?

Abby never expected the newly, dubbed Sheriff Stud Muffin, to be just the distraction her world needed

Saturday, September 14th, 2019
The
Fixer Upper
Echo
Springs Book 1
by
Maggie Mae Gallagher
Genre:
Contemporary Romance 
 
Abby
Callier is more in love with Shakespearean heroes than any real man,
and she’s beginning to wonder if there is life for her outside the
pages of a book. It doesn’t help that her esteemed parents tend to
view her as they would one of their science experiments gone wrong.
On the eve of finishing her dissertation, she escapes her staid
existence to live in the house she inherited from her Great Aunt Evie
in the small town of Echo Springs, Colorado. Because, let’s face
it, when a woman starts comparing her life to horror films, it might
be time for a break.

 

 

Sheriff
Nate Barnes believes in law and order and carefully building the life
you want. In his spare time, he has been remodeling his house in the
hope that one day it will be filled with the family he makes. But
Nate doesn’t like drama or complications and tends to avoid them at
all costs. And yet, when Miss Abigail Callier, his newest neighbor,
beans him with a nine iron, he can’t help but wonder if she might
just be the complication he’s been searching for all along. It
doesn’t hurt that he’s discovered a journal hidden away by the
previous tenant, and decides to use Old Man Turner’s advice to
romance Abby into his life.

 

 

Abby
never expected her next-door neighbor, the newly dubbed Sheriff Stud
Muffin, to be just the distraction her world needed. The problem is
she doesn’t know whether she should make Echo Springs her home, or
if this town is just a stopover point in her life’s trajectory. And
she doesn’t want to tell Nate that she might not be sticking around
– even though she should, because it’s the right thing to do, the
honest thing – because then all the scintillatingly hot kisses with
the Sheriff will come to an abrupt halt. Did she mention that he’s
a really great kisser?

Jeffrey Bardwell is the author of The Scion’s Delight, a prequel to his Mage Conspiracy series

Friday, August 2nd, 2019

Jeffrey, welcome to my blog. How long have you been writing?

I have been publishing fantasy novels since 2017. The actual writing began when I was six, a few decades earlier.

Tell us where you were born and where do you live now.

I was raised in a rural town in northern Virginia, bounced arund the country a bit from Texas to Missouri, and then landed back in a different small town in central Virginia. Life is funny like that.

How do you know the idea is good enough to write a book about it?

If it sticks in my mind after the notion / dream / inspiration strikes, and I want to find out more, it’s a keeper.

Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer?

My beta readers have helped spur a marked improvement in my writing. My first book was a hot mess.

What is the name of your book?

My new book is The Scion’s Delight, the prequel to my Mage Conspiracy series. It was inspired by a dream about a haughty princess trying to repair her broken death maze to torture rats. When I realized she was the younger incarnation of the evil empress in my main series, I knew I had a good story brewing.

 

 

Tell us more about it. Perhaps a back cover blurb.

A cunning trap. A whiff of magic. A burst of steam.

Princess Cordelia has steel plate ambition, a mind like twisting brass gears, and the political might of tin foil. The girl aims to ratchet the Iron Empire into a glorious new day of gears and steam. The entire palace is arrayed against her. The chambermaids disdain her. The emperor ignores her. The mages, championed by Lord Oriolanus, lead a brisk campaign of lies and coercion. Those evil magic users threaten to tighten their grip upon the land even though machines are clearly superior. By the gods’ oil-stained hands, why can’t anyone else see her vision of the ideal future?

Just when Cordelia’s future threatens to slip back into medieval quagmire, a lone stranger with ice blue eyes and flowing blond hair arrives from the savage north. The handsome barbarian is destined to make both the hearts of the empire and the princess tremble. Does this spell doom or salvation for the girl’s fragile dream?

Explore The Scion’s Delight, the fantasy romance prequel novella of The Mage Conspiracy series. Discover a world of adventure and intrigue where lies cut deeper than any sword.

Do you have a favorite character, why?

In this new book, I think Cordelia’s retiring servant Fortinbras is my favorite. His name is an homage to a character from one of my favorite fantasy authors growing up (email the correct guess who to jhbardwell@gmail.com for a free ebook!), and his deadpan pissing contest with the ruler of an empire was a joy to write.

 

Here is the other books in the The Mage Conspiracy

Book one

 

 

Book two

 

Book three                                                               

 

What kind of impact do you expect your works to have in the reader’s lives?

I write to edify and enlighten, but most of all to entertain. I think Erin Kahn said it much, much better than I can: A book by Jeffrey Bardwell is always a good time: exciting, dangerous, gritty, and multi-layered . . . fast-paced, entertaining, and psychologically intense.

Do you have any advice for authors trying to break into the industry?

Keep writing. Don’t be afraid to push yourself out there. Your first book will probably suck. Write another. I went back and rewrote the first book in my Artifice Mage series three times before I was happy with it (and the book truly deserved the title “epic” fantasy.)

Where can we find your book?

Will Virginia’s chosen vocation
fill the empty spaces in her heart?
It is 1858. With both parents dead,
Virginia Atwell lives with her older brother, Jefferson, and his family in
Booneville, Missouri. Under the pseudonym, V. A. Wellington, she secretly has
been submitting articles to a well-respected investigative journal about
controversial topics. To her dismay, she learns her family plans to buy new
farmland in the wilds of central Kansas Territory, making it almost impossible
for her to continue her clandestine article submissions. More importantly,
Virginia is terrified of the prospect of living so close to hostile Indian
tribes and dying by their hands because they resent white Americans moving onto
their traditional buffalo hunting grounds.
Virginia persuades her brothers to
give her a share of their parents’ inheritance so she may attend one of the few
colleges in Ohio that accepts female students. There, she finds Avery Wilson,
one of her professors and fellow boarder at Bettina Calloway’s boarding house,
resentful of female students, conceited and annoying, especially after his
criticism and resentment directed towards the author, V. A. Wellington, whose
articles are published while his submissions are rejected.
Virginia’s publisher insists V. A.
Wellington meet with him in person in St. Louis to discuss a new assignment.
When her landlady insists she cannot travel alone, Avery, curious about
Virginia’s secretive meeting and unable to resist his growing attraction to the
irritating but brilliant student, offers to escort her.
Once the editor discovers his star
contributor is a woman, he refuses to send her to write about conditions on the
Kaw reservation and the proposed treaty the government intends to impose on the
natives. Hoping to favorably impress the editor, Avery offers to pose as
Virginia’s fiancé in order to accompany and protect her on her assignment. Her
heart goes out to the Kaw, but what can fill the empty spaces of her heart?

Virginia’s
Vocation is also part of the author’s Atwell Kin series

course.
Virginia could not help the
disgruntled directions of her thoughts. Anything
to further the achievement of your goals for the future. If you knew

Clearing her father’s name, will ruin her chances of a happy life with the man she love

Monday, February 11th, 2019

 

 

Didi Lawson exchanged her town car for a pick-up truck and learned to operate a tractor when she and her husband moved from Arizona to a farm in  Missouri where she now weaves her tales. Her love for writing started early in  life when  she entertained her friends with her stories, won prizes for he essays in high school and wrote road shows and poems for the youth group in her church. She enjoys the outdoors, her children and ten grandchildren, and keeps an active social calendar.

It was supposed to be simple traveling to Germany to find her roots. But nothing turns out the way Tracy had planned. 
 
She meets a man who professes to be her half-brother and is less than happy with her visit. The villagers treat her with contempt for her father’s presumed infamous past. 
 
Trying to solve the mystery, she uncovers secrets that had been hidden for over two decades. Wanting to clear her father’s name, she realizes that by doing so she will ruin her chances of a happy life with the man who had captured her heart.

 

 
 
 
 
Snippet:
Tracy’s eyes had followed the tall man’s imposing figure from under half-closed lids. Whatever the problem on the man’s mind, it must be a tough one, she decided. Both hands deep in his jeans’ pockets and a mighty scowl on his features bore witness to his dark mood. His shirt, unbuttoned at the top and tucked into his waistband accentuated his leanness and agility, but his stance betrayed no mercy, only solid determination, and she felt sympathetic toward anyone on the receiving end of such barely concealed indignation.

Why
the Earl is After the Girl
Ways
of Love Book 1
by
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…

Secrets.
Lies. And a second chance at love…

 

 

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…

tests the bonds of love.
Lyra
Coventry, Lady Weston, has spent the past three years trapped in an

turn to for help, her judgment seems rather dire, until the Duke of
Albright comes forward to offer his aid. With no choice but to put

the true villain comes to light that she discovers a strength she
never knew existed – and a love she never thought was possible.
Alister
Ayles, Duke of Albright, might be the subject of ton ridicule, but as
a highly respected agent for the Crown, he discovered a higher
purpose. However, when he’s faced with his toughest investigation
to date, he has to travel a difficult path. Years ago, he’d made a
mistake and let Lyra slip through his fingers. Now, he has a chance
to make it right by clearing her name. But when it comes down to a
test of loyalty, will he stand strong, or fall prey to his desires?

Prophecy works with and against those who would heed it

Choices
Meant For Gods
The
Choices Trilogy Book 1
by
Sandy Lender
Genre:
Fantasy
 
Not
even the gods noticed when Chariss was born with the mark of The
Protector. Now she and her wizard guardian seek shelter from a mad
sorcerer in a household not just full of secrets and false hope, but
watched by the god who will unwittingly reveal her role in an
impending war.

 

 


When
an orphan sets aside a lifetime of running and fear to accept the
responsibilities of guarding an arrogant deity, can she face the
trials in the prophecies she uncovers? Will Nigel Taiman of her
latest refuge dare to use his dragon heritage to bind her to his
estate or to help her in her duty?

 

 

“Choices
Meant for Gods is without a doubt the freshest most engaging high
fantasy novel to come out in years and breathes new life into a tired
genre. The characters leap off the page and the plot is lightning
quick and deftly written with many layers that tease the mind and
imagination. Choices Meant for Gods is not a mere novel; it is a
gorgeous piece of written art. I can hardly wait for the second
book!”

“In
Choices Meant for Gods, Sandy Lender takes her readers of fantasy
fiction by the hand and leads them through an exciting world filled
with sorcerers, gods, goddesses, dragons, and other mythical
creatures. Through the use of interesting characters and clever
dialogue (“Try not to think, Nicolas. You look so much more
handsome when you’re bewildered.”), she weaves a spell of magic
and fantasy. The only problem for the reader may occur at the end of
the book when they find themselves wanting more and discover they
will have to wait for book two!”

When

creeps over the goddess who guides her. Can an

she sacrifice all to keep her god-charge safe?

Readers
will recognize Sandy Lender as the author of the 2007 fantasy novel
“Choices Meant for Gods” from ArcheBooks Publishing, but
the South Florida resident has been writing since she was knee high
to a grasshopper. At the early age of about six, Sandy entertained
the folks in her great grandmother’s apartment building in Southern
Illinois with ghost stories of squeaky spiders. Sandy won a
first-place award with that imagination when she wrote a sequel to
Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird” during her school days
in the St. Louis area before earning a degree in English from Truman
State University in Kirksville, Missouri. That led to a career in
journalism where she’s worked for a variety of publications the past
23 years.

 

 


Today
she’s the editorial director of two construction magazines and
publisher of an avian publication. ArcheBooks has released the final
of the “Choices” trilogy, and a number of her YA novels
will get star treatment in 2016 and beyond. Sandy is also a sea
turtle conservationist. She has companion parrots and turtles in her
home who keep her hopping. It takes one ring on her cell phone to
discover she’s remained obsessed with Duran Duran since 1984. She’s
beaten cancer twice, but still battles the IRS. To begin 2016
properly, she welcomes readers to share in the conclusion of
Chariss’s epic story in “Choices Meant for All.”
