Synopsis
Family drama is something Lutéce Choate struggles to avoid. With a mother who’s an award-winning country western song writer, an aunt who’s a Country Music Hall of Famer, and a brother who’s a rock star, it hasn’t exactly been a low-key kind of life, and she’s ready for a break.

Then Lu’s younger sister, Claire, goes off and gets engaged to a prince from Malquar, bringing the dreaded spotlight back to shine on their family once again. Lu wants to go to the engagement party about as much as she wants to yodel the Star Spangled Banner at the Grand Ole Opry with her crazy relatives. Alas, not going, doesn’t appear to be an option.

Alistair George Henry Bere Hale is not the heir, but the spare. Without the weight of the Crown in his future, he’s managed to live the carefree life of a man about town. That is until his younger brother gets engaged before him and their mother starts pressuring him to settle down.

Alistair represents everything that Lutéce has come to despise–he’s a rich, playboy, partier, who’s always in the spotlight… But Alistair doesn’t feel the same about Lu. In fact, he’s quite drawn to his brother’s future sister-in-law, prickles and all.

When Lu and Alistair’s mothers witness the sparks between their children, they start to make plans of their own. Will Lu relax her prejudices long enough to get to know Alistair?

Find out in the fabulously funny fourth book in the Seven Bride’s for Seven Mothers Series.

 ————————————————————————————–

Excerpt #2
After the pilot comes over the intercom to welcome us to Malquar, we all stand to deplane. Mixed emotions flood my thoughts as the strains of music from a live band start to fill the atmosphere around us.

“They’re playing the Malquarian anthem,” Geoffrey explains. “I didn’t come home for my thirtieth birthday, as per my parents’ plan, so I can only assume there might be a bit of a circus out there.”

Stepping back into the cabin, I bend down to look out the window. Yup, there it is, the circus. There must be a fifty-piece band playing on one side of a red carpet. The other side is full of reporters and photographers.

The image of an old ringmaster, full-on with a red coat, tails, and black top hat, pops into my head. He’s holding a bullhorn to his mouth, and I can practically hear him shout, “Will everyone please turn their attention to the center ring. Our prince has returned home with his bride and her illustrious family of yodelers!” Tooty and Mom love to yodel as a means of decompressing. It’s enough to make your ears bleed if you’re not a fan of the genre.

And sometimes, even if you are a fan.

I return to our little exit line and watch while Geoffrey and Claire disembark. They stop and wave as the crowd cheers wildly. Crap, I should have brought some better clothes to change into. The jogging suit I’m currently wearing was chosen for comfort, not to meet the press.

As if reading my mind, my mom turns around and looks me up and down before saying, “Oh dear, maybe you should stay on the plane until the crowd disbands.” Ouch.

Ignoring her, I run my fingers through my auburn hair and pinch my cheeks to bring some color to them. By the time it’s my turn to get off, most of the press is on the tarmac, crowding around my sister and her intended. The rest seem to be vying for Tooty’s attention.

I scan the masses, feeling oddly separated from my body. It’s like I’m watching a scene in a movie. I’m about to step down onto the stairs when my gaze locks with a pair of dark chocolate brown eyes, penetrating eyes that cause me to stop dead in my tracks and gasp audibly. “Settle down, Lu,” I chastise myself silently for such an absurd reaction to Geoffrey’s brother. Alistair was nothing but a flirtatious annoyance at his sister’s wedding, and I’m not looking forward to more of the same. Yet, even as I try to convince myself of this, my heart beats in double time and perspiration starts to form on my palms.

Great. Not only am I dressed like a college kid returning home for break, but I’m nervously sweating. Which is super fun, as what I’m guessing is the entire national press corps is out there ready to film the scene for posterity.

Adult Dark Fantasy Dystopian

Synopsis
Fail the tests and become a slave. Display defectiveness and be put to death.

Monroe Academy was built to separate the weak from the strong. Pass the biyearly leveling and be released into society upon graduation. Fail to be promoted and be stripped of rank and forced into servitude. That was a rule that applied to all but Rayah Bardeau. A student of Monroe Academy, branded as a Null because of her absence of Lighter energy.

With her mother standing as a slave in her place, Rayah was given until the age of twenty to make level six, but at nineteen-years-old and with only eight months until her twentieth birthday, she was only a mere level one. The same level she’s been since she was ten. With the stress of her upcoming test, the loss of a friend, and the constant wrongdoings towards her, Rayah could only dream of escaping from Lytonia, and escape she did. Only, when she awakened in her dorm, she couldn’t distinguish if she had only dreamt of meeting Soren, a wild and adventurous defect in the Wild Lands, or if she had somehow used her Lighter Form to get there.

But only the elite ― the most powerful of Lighters ― could tap into their Lighter Forms. Right? And what was the dark energy she used when she and Soren were attacked by Depleters? Was Rayah really as powerless as she thought? Was she a defect? And if she used dark energy, could she call herself a Lighter at all?

Bestselling author Destiny Hawkins brings you the first installment of a gripping dark fantasy where a powerless girl must survive in a society that doesn’t accept the weak…or the defective.

Content Advisory: The following book contains vivid depictions of violence and death. Reader discretion is advised.

Excerpt #3
I let my hand drop to my side and began walking but didn’t even make it a few feet before hearing twigs and leaves crunching on my left. When I turned my head to see who or what it was, I froze, and my lips parted to inhale.

Oh, no.

Psycho had also stopped walking when he spotted me, looking almost as shocked as I was. If he were any regular guy that I’d spotted in the forest, I would have blushed at his handsomeness. I couldn’t see him as well the first night that we met, but now that I was looking at him in the brightness of the day, I couldn’t stop staring. The sun rays shining down on him only made it harder for me to turn away, but when my eyes landed on the Life Stones dangling from around his neck, I frowned.

A slow and devious grin crept up Psycho’s lips. “Found you.”

Right as I started to run, white lighting blasted from Psycho’s fingertips. He didn’t expect me to slide under it, roll to my feet, and continue running. I was experienced in having others try and use their powers to keep me from escaping, so I naturally knew how to get around some things.

I heard crackles of lightning slicing through the air behind me, barely missing me by a hair each time. Splinters of wood exploded from the trees, warning me not to slow down. Psycho was probably more experienced in chasing his victims than I was in running from my attackers, so I had to consider that he was leading me in the direction that I was going.

I wanted to stop and turn but changing direction would be dangerous. I could turn right, making myself an easier target, I could go in the opposite direction, giving him a few seconds time to zap me, or I could just charge at him and catch him by surprise. He was just an elem. It was the brights that I had a hard time fighting against, since they were so fast and strong, but Psycho-

Fire roared past my face, causing me to slide to a stop. I wasn’t paying attention and had almost been burned. The heat of the flame kept me from running through it, making me think back to Artemis and his hot iron rods. I couldn’t believe that my thoughts of being burned again had hindered me from escaping. I had run through fire plenty of times before, patting off the fire patches as I got away, but this time I couldn’t move. Artemis had done something to my mind, causing me freeze in fear.

Excerpt #3
I just finished up with my afternoon client and glance out my shop’s windows. I have to double-take because I realize that the girl my sister introduced me to is standing out there staring at the sign. She has the coffees I ordered— I glance at the clock on the wall— almost an hour ago in her hands. Not that I give a fuck about how long it took her to get here. I’m actually glad it took her longer because it would have gone cold while I finished up with my client. That doesn’t stop me from wanting to give her shit about it. A smile pulls at my lips as I make my way to the lobby.

I hear her talking to Riley. Well, more so, Riley talking to her, because Harlow is too busy looking around the shop with curiosity to listen to what she has to say. I enjoy the view of her. She has a willowy frame with legs for days, a nice ass. Her skin is a rich, velvety golden brown, and she has light brown kinky curly hair that is piled on top of her head in a bun, Her bright brown almond shaped eyes look like sunshine shining through a glass of whiskey. Okay, so I may have studied her a little harder than what I let onto my sister. Fucking sue me. It would be a sin to not appreciate a nice view.

She starts to respond to Riley. “Oh, no I’m—” but when she turns around to examine the rest of the shop her gaze falls on me and she stops mid-sentence.

“Late,” I finish her sentence for her.

She stands there with her lips slightly parted as if she isn’t sure what to say.

Her full lips curve into a smile and she starts looking around the shop again as she talks. “Yeah, sorry, it’s busy at the shop and I shouldn’t even be working today, but my uncle needed me so I decided to work so…” Her voice trails off and she holds out the cup holder to me.

“They should be hot…”

I don’t immediately take them, I just let her stand there for a few seconds holding them out to me while I continue to stare at her. She raises an eyebrow, still with a smile on her face, and I take them. Does she always smile this much?

“Is it burned?” I ask and try my best to keep the smile off of my face.

Her eyes narrow and she crosses her arms over her chest. “I don’t know, why don’t you taste it and tell me since you’re such a coffee connoisseur.”

I can’t help the smile that pulls at my lips. I look for my cup of Americano and grab it. I turn my attention towards Riley. “Can you take these back for the rest of the crew?” Riley gets up and looks between Harlow and I, clearly confused. I rarely make small talk with people. Especially someone who is delivering coffee.

Harlow’s eyes follow Riley as she leaves. Her smile is back on her face. “She’s nice.”

“That’s because I pay her to be.”

“Yeah, imagine customers having to deal with you first? Tragic.” Her voice sounds like honey laced with venom.

This time, I give her a genuine smile and she rolls her eyes.

“Well, I better get back to the shop. It’s really busy right now.”

I pique an eyebrow. “Aren’t you curious as to whether the coffee is burned or not?”

She rests her hands on her hips. “I know it isn’t, Acyn.” I’m shocked she remembered my name and that she calls me Acyn instead of Ace. Only family and a few close friends call me Acyn. To everyone else I’m Ace, the tattoo guy.

“You can call me Ace.”

She blinks at me and snorts with laughter.

“What’s so funny?” I ask.

“Nothing… Ace,” she says my nickname with a sarcastic tone and then chuckles. “I’ll call you Acyn. It sounds better anyway.”

They’ve been hired to remodel a mansion. Will they end up getting a room?

Marisa Sanchez has grand designs for her future. After taking over her grandfather’s construction firm, the successful vlogger and civil engineer is about to take the next step with a new show on the Home Design Network. But she’s not pleased to find out she can only have the lucrative gig if she agrees to work with a handsome rival.

Levi Chance takes the responsibility of providing for his brothers seriously. So when his biggest client asks him to come into the spotlight to co-host a new program, he reluctantly accepts. But he fears the pretty, camera-loving partner he’s been assigned might bring his top-notch reputation tumbling down if she can’t deliver the goods.

Discovering her teammate is quite capable, Marisa battles her attraction to him as she ambitiously turns the project upside down. And the more Levi works with the smart Latina, the more he worries he’s about to push the “no sex” morality clause in their contract into forbidden territory.

Will Marisa and Levi’s fixer-upper turn into a happily together forever?

Renovated is the charming first book in the moving Chance Brothers contemporary romance series. If you like sparkling attractions, comedic moments, and steamy action, then you’ll love Nikki Kiley’s well-built romp.

 ————————————————————————————–

Excerpt
“I recognize this is out of left field, but an opportunity came up. One of our power couple shows just announced their divorce—something to do with an au pair, and believe me, the situation has gotten hideous.”

I looked at Marisa. Her shoulders went rigid, her eyes turning sharp and assessing, hands fisted in her lap. Neither of us uttered a word, letting Rebecca have the stage.

“Marisa, I’ve been hitting a wall with pitching the show we originally spoke about. They didn’t think the target market would watch TV and become viewers, but if we made it another couple show with a twist __” her head tilted to us as if it was apparent what she meant.

Marisa’s back went ramrod straight where she perched on the chair.

She stammered in bewilderment. “Wait . . . you want us to partner up?” Her face filled with disbelief—and was that disgust I was seeing? “That was not the deal you gave me when you got in touch with me. What do I need Mr. Chance for?”

Rebecca responded like a parent explaining to a child why they can’t have dessert before eating their veggies. “The network always partners up with a construction company. The Chance Brothers have done most of the projects in this area for us. The decision to make this a show about two people working toward a common goal comes from above. It is a straightforward decision. It’s a yes or no situation. I’m hoping you both will take it since I see the potential, but it’s not just up to me.”

Working with a drama queen wasn’t on my wish list either, but I wasn’t getting into a pissing contest here. I was interested in seeing where this would go. Rebecca’s mother gave me my first break in the business when I did a gut job on their estate home on Star Island. Mrs. Walton monitored that project just like she ran the Home Network, ensuring I came in on budget and on time.

This time I directed myself to the Latin bombshell in front of me. “Ms. Sánchez, I am here to listen to what is on the table just as much as you. Besides writing about design and posting online about it, what have you done?”

Given her intake of breath, I knew I had hit a sore spot.

Synopsis
They say you should never make a deal with the devil, but what about with the Prince of the Underworld?

Fresh off a breakup and an eviction, I started my day like any other: a book in one hand, a coffee in the other, and faking that can-do attitude inspirational memes are made of. I was ready to take on the world—and I did.

Unfortunately, it was the Underworld.

One freak accident later, I’m standing face to face with the sexy-as-sin and dangerously powerful Prince of the Underworld. He has a few burning questions for me—like how a mere human unlocked the door to the Underworld’s prison and released its prisoners.

I’d sure as hell like to know, too, because I have no freaking clue.

Now, instead of a forgettable bookstore clerk, I’m newly famous for doing the impossible. The wrong people want to thank me, and the rest want me dead. Spoiler alert: The Dark Prince definitely doesn’t want to thank me.

I’ll do anything to get my life back to normal and he’ll do anything to recapture the escapees. We make a deal: He’ll keep my enemies at bay, and I’ll find a way to return the prisoners.

Excerpt
“I’ve been pulled into something that I definitely don’t want to be in, dealing with people I hope to never encounter again. I want it to be over. I want to have nothing to do with this situation or you dreadful people.” I lifted my hand, presenting the markings. “If working with you is the only way, then I’m in. If we are working together, no more threats. I don’t care how thinly veiled they are. You will not bully me. Are we clear?”

His expression changed but it was still indecipherable. Understanding? I don’t think that was it. Amusement? Definitely. Portentous? It better not be.

His lips curled slightly into a small, tight, mirthless smile. He looked over his shoulder at Anand who flashed a grin. “I’ve been commanded to behave,” Dominic said to him. The laughter in his voice made its way to his eyes.

“Little Luna.”

“It’s just Luna,” I shot back.

“Luna. You are correct. I want to find the person behind this, especially if it is a Dark Caster. I know their history and the chaos and destruction they enjoy. It needs to be stopped. And to do so, we will have to work together.”

I’d been abducted and attacked by a vampire, sniffed by a lion, interrogated by a witch, and nearly devoured—or whatever his intentions were—by a wolf. I had every right to be overly cautious and I didn’t like the subtle undertones in his response. A limited alliance.

Synopsis
Bullshit is spelled ‘You’re a werewolf’.

First, my parents tell me I’m going to be “checking into the Red Roof Inn” every month, and now, they tell me I’m a werewolf?!

Add to that I need to pick a mate and enter into some wolfy marriage—NOPE.

Not. Going. To. Happen.

They can’t make me.

Everyone thinks this is just a phase but nineteen is the new two—and I’m going to show them how terrible I can be.

Buckle up, bitches, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Excerpt #1
“I’ll tell you in exchange for something,” I bargain.

Rue squints at me warily.

“What?”

“I’ll tell you where we’re going and what we’re doing, if you give me a kiss.”

I hear Rue’s heartbeat speed up at these words. She might say she wants the omega as her mate, but her body is finely tuned to mine. Her tongue darts out to wet her lips, and I nearly groan at the sight. Her eyes are heavy-lidded, and she’s sending out all the right signals. She just needs to turn off her brain. I see her body war with her mind, and I know the moment her flesh wins. Her lithe frame becomes soft, and she leans in towards me.

“One kiss—that’s all.”

“One kiss,” I promise, leaning over.

“Well, not now!” Rue shrieks. “You’re driving!”

I chuckle at her outrage.

“Okay, when we get there, then.”

Exactly thirty seconds later, I stop the car.

“What are you doing?” she demands.

“We’re here—and I want my kiss.”

“Whoa, whoa, whoa! Backup, buddy! You’re not getting that smooch for free. You tell me where we are right now.”

Rue peers out her window into the night. She hasn’t admitted it, but I know she can’t see anything. I wish she would tell me more about why she’s not like a normal wolf, but trust will come with time. If I want her to confide in me, I need to respect Rue’s boundaries.

“We’re at my grandma’s house,” I finally confess, making her gasp.

“Your grandma’s house?!”

“I told you I was going to feed you homemade tortillas and margaritas. What better place than at my grandma’s where you can meet my family, too.”

“But—but—but—” she splutters, “we could’ve done this back at the mansion!”

“Nah. I only make tortillas and margaritas at my abuela’s. Do you not want to meet them?”

“It’s not that—it’s just this is like tenth date shit, ya know?”

“I’m working with only three and a half days, so I’m speeding things up,” I remind with a wink.

Rue snorts.

“I’d say. Well, don’t think you can just skip all the bases and go to home plate, mister!” she admonishes severely.

“I know that’s a sports analogy, but I don’t get it,” I admit.

Rue’s tinkling laugh dances around us, and I can sense her irritation at my date plan fading away.

“Not a human saying you know, huh? It means that first base is kissing, second base is er, feeling one another up… third base is—shit. You know what? I don’t even know what the bases really are anymore except for first and home. Everyone changes them, but first is always kissing and home plate is when you finally bump uglies. You know—”

“Yes, I know,” I cut in. “Humans make sports analogies for sex?”

“Yep.”

“Strange. If I promise not to shoot it in your hoop before you dribble my balls, can we just try a kiss?”

Rue clutches her stomach as she bends, giggling hysterically.

“That’s not a saying!” she wheezes.

“Well, how am I supposed to know which sports analogies work and don’t work?”

I get out of the car and walk over to her side. Smoothly, I open her door and pull her out to me.

“Now, about that kiss.”

Synopsis
What’s a girl to do when death is the worst and best thing that can happen to her?

Lily cares for three things above all else: nature, her father, and her best friend, Caiden.

Caiden isn’t the typical hot guy, but his eyes glow—sometimes literally—with a confidence and charm that make Lily’s heart flutter wildly.

When she kisses him for the first time, he disappears into a swirl of gold and silver that leaves her questioning her sanity.

Three months later, Caiden reappears to explain what happened and who he really is, but Lily is too angry to hear it.

She needs time to figure out her feelings, time she doesn’t have because she’s being hunted by death—Death Sentries who know the truth about her lineage and want her for gifts she doesn’t know she possesses. Those gifts in Death’s hands can shift the balance between life and death on Earth and cause mass destruction.

Now, Lily must protect herself against manipulative Sentries sent to capture her, decide if she can trust Caiden, and resist or give into the explosive attraction between them.

But when she learns the truth about Caiden and his original intent toward her, Lily’s head and heart go to war. Before long, she’s left to question if her life is worth protecting or if her father and the world are safer without her in it.

*For mature young adult readers and all ages above.

Excerpt #2
Thirty minutes had passed, and I hadn’t moved since Raysa left. I couldn’t stop thinking about Caiden and Bianca. I hated the jealousy brewing inside me over her being with him at the manor, while I was here, imprisoned. I couldn’t even go outside to relax.

I pulled off my robe to change but ended up scrutinizing my figure instead. I still wore the white lacy bra and panty set Raysa insisted I put on under the dress. They were pretty and, though I was no Victoria’s Secret model, the pieces did make me look almost curvy.

I glanced at my petite physique in the mirror and couldn’t believe my eyes. I moved closer to my reflection and zeroed in on my lips. They were fuchsia, but I didn’t have on lipstick. I grabbed a tissue and tried to wipe away the color, but it didn’t work. This close to my reflection, my eyes looked more lilac than blue, and my dark lashes had doubled in length. Assuming it was a goddess thing, but still a little freaked out, I dashed to the kitchen. My phone was on the counter and I wanted to ask Raysa what she thought.

When I passed through the family room, the front door swung open. I froze.

A dark figure entered the foyer and continued in my direction. Immediately, I thought of Dagan.

My heart raced as I ran for the stairs and my bedroom. I’d barely made it five steps when hands snagged me around the waist.

“No!” I tried to pry his fingers from my skin.

“It’s all right, Lily. It’s me.” Caiden pulled me against his chest.

I let out a breath and rested for a moment before I remembered that I was still in my bra and panties. “Close your eyes,” I ordered. “I’m not dressed.”

He chuckled. “You’re joking, right?”

“I’m not moving until you close your eyes.” At least, sandwiched against him, he couldn’t see my body. Not unless he craned his neck and blatantly stared down at me.

“Lily, it’s nothing I haven’t seen before. Remember?” His tone was silky and low.

“Remember that you peek? How could I forget? I won’t make that mistake ever again.” The feel of his warm hands flat against my stomach had me tight as a knot.

“Ever?” he whispered in my ear.

Shivers ran over my skin.

I jumped away and faced him. “Why are you here?”

His glittering eyes roamed my body, and a ray of gold flashed from his head to his feet. With his chin low, he peered up through dark lashes and inched toward me.

“What are you doing? Are you…losing it?” I backed up until I bumped into the wall.

He stopped in front of me. “Stay still.” He brushed my hair behind my shoulder and bent down to nuzzle his face in the crook of my neck. After a few deep breaths, he seemed to relax.

My body, however, did the opposite. My muscles coiled like springs. He was so warm and smelled so good. Unsure of what he was doing, but aware it wasn’t an attack, I closed my eyes and rested my head against the wall.

“I had to see you,” he breathed on my neck, his fingers lightly trailing up my arm. “Everything is right when you’re near.”

Synopsis
Welcome to Caldon, a land of mages and magic, where the noblesse possess massive political and magical power and destroy anyone who threatens the noblesse way of life—especially the commoners.

Rill Larkin, the son of a commoner blacksmith, has high ambitions. To be a mage, join the exalted ranks of the ruling noblesse, and establish his own noblesse family. Defying both the system and his family, Rill becomes the apprentice of Deuth Estati, a powerful archmage. But appearances deceive. As training progresses, Rill learns of decades-long secrets and manipulations that threaten his dream. And Deuth might not be as benevolent as Rill thought.

Alyse Dejune despises magic, even if she does belong to one of the oldest and most powerful noblesse families in Caldon. The deceits and treacheries of noblesse life and the loveless marriage alliances among the noblesse families disgust her. Her family however has high expectations: that she fulfill her role as a noblesse girl by marrying Troy Estati, an arrogant, selfish noblesse boy she does not love. And Alyse harbors a secret—the potential to become one of the most powerful mages in generations and wield forbidden magic—that, if revealed, could mean her death.

In this deadly game of ever-shifting alliances, where the state wages perpetual war against an ancient enemy, Rill and Alyse are thrown together in a land where magic is failing. And as greedy noblesse families raid surrounding family compounds for powerful charms, Rill and Alyse are left standing at a terrible crossroads.

Excerpt #2
Chapter 14
Charm Raid

A deafening explosion shook the back courtyard.

Alyse jerked into a sitting position in bed, her heart frozen and her mind whirling in confusion.

Kate’s connecting door with Alyse’s burst open. The meager flame from the finger lamp Kate held illuminated the sword and dagger buckled over her white cotton nightshift. “Get up! We’ve been attacked.”

Alyse scrambled out of bed, fear billowing up her throat, expanding with air until she almost choked.

Wild shouts, clangs of swords clashing, and voices crying in pain attacked her ears through the partially open window shutters. Alyse’s mind turned as blank as a parchment sheet. She strained to recall where she had put her dress. No! There wasn’t time to grab the dress because the cardinal rule had been drummed into her head since childhood. If the compound is attacked, go to the safe shelter immediately because even a moment’s delay could end with her death if the raiders quickly overwhelmed the family’s defenders.

Kate eased the door open and peeked into the family area.

Her heart hammering in her ears, Alyse peered over Kate’s shoulder.

Servants were racing through the family area lighting torches set in sconces along the walls to provide light for the defenders if the raiders should make it into the house. Backwatchers were sprinting toward the adults’ bedrooms on the side opposite Alyse’s to escort the other family members to the safe shelter.

The ring of sword against sword and ear-piercing cracks of spells and shouts of attackers and defenders moved into the peristyle garden just outside the family area.
Another blast shook the front courtyard.

“Come on!” Kate said.

They ran toward the dining room. Before they’d covered two spear lengths, the door to the garden burst inward with a deafening roar that made Alyse’s ears ring. A huge wood splinter whizzed by Alyse’s head as attackers charged into the family area.

“Back!” Kate cried. “Into the bedroom.”

They dashed inside. While Kate locked the door, Alyse closed and bolted the window shutters, then took the dagger from her dresser drawer and unsheathed the blade.

A sharp burst, followed by something crashing onto the floor. Booted feet pounded and swords clashed.

“Jade! Oh, Goddess—no! Help! Somebody, help!”

Alyse’s breath caught in her throat as she imagined her sister being hacked to pieces by the raiders. “Mora!” She charged toward the door.

Kate yanked her arm so fiercely that Alyse almost lost her footing. “We have to help ourselves.”

Shouting raiders raced past their door toward the receiving hall.

“Listen,” Kate said, her voice tight with urgency. “We don’t need to worry about the mages. They have to see their targets to cast spells. As for the bladeswomen, the door’s only wide enough to let in one or two at a time.”

Alyse’s nerves twitched as if they were being pricked by dozens of sharp-pointed pins. She gulped a deep breath that reached the bottom of her lungs, and nodded. She wouldn’t get out of this if she panicked.

Kate stoked the hearth to create a low flame, then drew her sword. “If they come in, let me do the fighting. Use your dagger only to defend yourself, and don’t hesitate to strike. Understand?”

Alyse’s fingers tightened around the dagger’s leather-wrapped grip. The weapon, puny though it was, gave her strength. “Yes.”

Kate extinguished the finger lamp. Alyse waited tensely in the shadows near the hearth while the sounds in Mora’s room subsided.

“The other’s in here.”

An earsplitting blast blew the door off its hinges.

A woman wielding a sword rushed over the shattered wood.

Kate cut her down.

A man and a woman leaped over the body. Kate met them face on, parrying their blades with both sword and dagger. The fight took them toward the sleeping alcove. Alyse beat down the urge to attack the raiders while their backs were to her.

A mage stepped over the body sprawled by the door. “Give me a clear cast!” he shouted.\

The two attackers split apart, exposing Kate to full view.

The mage pointed his staff at her.

Horror sealed off Alyse’s throat, threatening to choke her. Don’t hesitate. Kate’s injunction sliced through her brain like a knife cutting through bonds.

Alyse screamed and charged the mage.

Whirling, he swung the staff at her head.

Alyse ducked and plunged the dagger into his chest.

The mage dropped the staff and staggered backward.

Alyse scooped up the staff and smashed his skull with the orb.

He fell to the floor, dead.

Breathing hard, Alyse retrieved her dagger and turned toward the three shadowy figures battling. Part of her mind was mesmerized by Kate’s deadly skill—the first time she had ever seen her cousin fighting for real. The other part was terrified one of the raiders’ swords might slip through Kate’s guard because Kate was maneuvering to keep the attackers away from her.

A murky figure in the doorway blocked the torchlight from the family area. A bladeswoman holding a bloodstained sword.

Synopsis
Blu
My entire life is my music—and all the trappings that come with it. Sex, booze, and rock ’n’ roll is all I ever wanted. Touring the world as the lead singer of Balefire, I have it all. Until on hiatus, I meet the girl next door.

Ashleigh Baker is nothing like the groupies and celebrities who usually have all my attention. In her cute floppy hat with her knees stained with dirt, she spends her days creating a flowering show piece from her rented yard. She’s the most gorgeous woman I’ve ever met, and she acts like she doesn’t want a damn thing to do with me. But from the moment I laid eyes on her, she’s all I can think about.

Ashleigh

Growing up the only child of an Air Force Colonel, all I wanted was to stay in one place for more than a minute. When I score a pretty little house with a long-term lease, I just want to grow my flowers and my freelancing gig as a music reviewer. Then a loud Harley wakes me from a sound sleep and I discover my neighbor is Blu Connolly. Yeah, that Blu Connolly, lead singer for my favorite band Balefire. With his killer good looks and panty-melting voice, he’s a walking temptation to sin. Though I do my best to avoid him, it seems Blu has other ideas. He’s on a mission to wear me down, let him in, but what happens when he stops wanting to sing for me?

 ————————————————————————————–

Excerpt #1
Mom lasered me with her eyes, and I barked out a laugh. Baiting my mother—another thing I’d missed.

“What does Ashleigh do, exactly?”

“She’s a substitute teacher at your old high school and she writes articles and submits them to all sorts of publications.”

“Yeah? What does she write about? Gardening?”

I might have laughed at the idea yesterday, but after seeing her sweet ass up in the air as she bent over the row of flowers she planted this morning, I had a sudden appreciation for gardening.

“She writes about music. Does a darn fine job of it too. She’s reviewed several local bands as well as some big ones. She even wrote a review of your show at Red Rocks last summer for some little blog. Her description of Dakota’s guitar and your voice specifically could have made Balefire a household name had you needed the boost. Her writing is that good.” Mom took a nonchalant sip of her wine, but I caught the look she shot me. “Or maybe I’m biased since she complimented my boy so flatteringly.”

“Yeah, well, maybe I should sing to her next time ’cause she sure didn’t flatter me today when I invited her to lunch.”

The conversation led me right back to that dark place it had taken me three hours of hard riding to escape. Ashleigh’s wine soured in my mouth as I heard her accusations in my head again.

Mom ignored my comment and my sudden bad mood. “You slept away most of the first two days you’ve been home. What are your plans for this evening?”

“Haven’t thought about it much. Maybe head down to the Dollar, see if anyone from the old days is still around, shoot some pool. After you feed me dinner,” I added with a sly smirk.

Truly, I should have offered to take Mom out to eat, but the woman could outcook any chef in the state. After months on the road, I craved her home cooking.

She smiled back at me, reading my mind again. “Your favorite dinner is thawing on the counter right now. I baked it last weekend for when you came home.”

“Yeah?” I asked carelessly before I bounced up out of my chair and raced into the kitchen. Sure enough, a huge pan of lasagna sat on the counter. Jesus, did I love that woman.

The tangible evidence of my mom’s love for me put a giant smile on my face as I headed to the bathroom to shower off the road grime and sweat from my ride. Though it was early June, the temperature insisted on summer, and I could smell myself when I walked back into the house.

When I finished cleaning up, I found Mom in the kitchen singing some pop tune softly as she busied herself with dinner. Her taste in music ran to mellow, and I had to laugh as I walked into the kitchen. As our biggest supporter early on, she attended almost every one of our shows and smiled and danced all the way through them. We’d been playing professionally for three or four years when I discovered the earplugs. To this day I have no idea what she heard in her head as we played, but it wasn’t us. Still, she’d had a good time and inspired others around her to join her in that, which improved the vibe of our early shows.

Thoughts of those long-ago shows led me back to Mom’s comment about Ashleigh’s articles. After dinner, I googled her to see what she’d said about us. Not that it mattered. The woman appeared pretty hostile to me during our first two meetings. Then I read an article she wrote for Rocky Mountain High, an online arts and entertainment blog.

The Balefire concert at Red Rocks last weekend blasted all expectations of what a rock show is or should be. The band’s musicianship, sound quality, pyrotechnics, and light show exceeded anything offered at Red Rocks in recent memory. From Jack Whitehorse’s opening drum solo pounding through the collective chest of the crowd to Dakota Perri’s blistering guitar licks revving the audience into a frenzy to Adam Tron’s driving bass forcing people to jump out of their seats and dance, the band grabbed the audience by the throat and refused to let go for two solid hours of nonstop, over-the-top thrill ride.

However, Balefire’s signature sound lies in the incredible vocal range of the band’s lead singer, Blu Connolly. From his primal screams on “Out of My Head” to his smooth baritone rumblings on “You’re the One” to his pitch-perfect harmonies with Whitehorse on their new song “Missing You,” Connolly’s voice is the heart and soul of the band. No wonder during a Balefire concert, women toss their underwear at the stage with wild abandon. The man has the ability to make panties to drop every time he steps up to a microphone.

Huh. So Ashleigh liked the show at Red Rocks. More than that, she loves my voice, at least when I’m using it to sing.

Mom was right about Ashleigh’s ability to review music too. Her words made me think back on that show, one of our best. Her article reminded me why I absolutely fucking love what I do for a living even when a tour wrings me out. Panty-dropping voice. Her description made me smile. Sobering, I pondered what it would take to tempt the delectable yet prickly Ashleigh Baker to drop her panties for me.

Synopsis
Lyric Meadows is used to being overlooked.

Lovingly called Peanut for as long as she can remember, she uses ceramics to escape the high expectations of her parents. It also keeps her from having to tell them that she’s asexual, thereby disappointing them twice because she has no intention to work in music like they want or give them grandchildren. It’s not easy to conceal a part of who she is, but she’ll do it if it means maintaining some privacy.

Luca Sherwood is used to having his privacy invaded.

As the son of controversial politician Richard (Dick) Sherwood, the paparazzi is always up in his business, just waiting for a scandal to blast all over the social media. Unfortunately, Luca’s brother Rider does have something to hide, and it is something that could destroy their father’s career if the public ever learned of it.

Lyric and Luca are an unlikely duo with far more in common than they think.

One day, all of Lyric’s work at the studio is shattered by an apparent vandal. Devastated, she begins to wonder if her parents were right all along and she should just settle for singing. That is, until Luca volunteers to help her figure out the vandal’s identity. Her resulting romantic & sexual attraction to him is startling, but she’s going to need all the help she can get once she learns that the person who destroyed her artwork may be closer than she thinks.

Excerpt #2
“You’ve got some clay on your—” He pointed at his own forehead, gesturing to his brows.

“What?” Lyric reached up to check and found he was right. She shot up, laughing awkwardly, but he gently clasped a hand around her wrist.

“Here. Let me.” He curled his finger in a beckoning motion, and she leaned down until their breaths mingled. Luca carefully dabbed the cloth against her skin, and Lyric gulped, barely daring to breathe. Her heart hammered against her chest. “All better.” Luca cleared his throat, and Lyric reeled back as if broken from a spell, careening into the rolling tool cart that always seemed to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.

“Shut up,” she told him. Luca snickered, and she glowered at him, embarrassment scorching her neck on its way to her face.

Author Brianna Bennett

About the Author
Fanfiction was where it all began. It gave me the opportunity to stretch my creative muscles and work out crucial lessons in the craft. I spent several years writing for free, which helped me understand the realities of the writing world early on.

Once I got to college, I did the one thing that most advisors tell you not to do: I majored in what I was passionate about, not what would be most practical. ​

After graduating from college with a degree in Professional Writing, I took a year off and then enrolled in a double Master’s program. In the 3 years that followed, I dedicated myself to learning as much as I could about all areas of writing and publishing.

Nowadays, I’m a medical receptionist, soon-to-be self-published author, Medium blogger, writing coach, and podcast host. I live and work in Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Synopsis
My name is Vicious. God-given name, I cross my heart. And it fits. I’m a hot-as-f, inked-up tattoo artist at the trendiest shop in the Rocky Mountains. I have the looks, I have the bike, I have the reputation.

That means I get the ladies.

Sure. There are lots of women out there who hate tattoos. Wouldn’t be caught dead with guys like me. And that’s fine. I’m not looking for girls like that. I’m looking for that other kind of girl. The wild one, the bad one, the crazy one. Funny thing is… the one I fell for isn’t that girl.

She’s the Good Girl.

And maybe back when she was nineteen I came off as a ‘maybe’, but after seven years of distance I am now the definition of ‘not a keeper’. But I can be a keeper. I can make the good girl swoon. I can be the dream guy she never saw coming.

If she would just… not press charges… I’m pretty sure I can turn this whole relationship around.

Vic Vaughn is Vicious is a bad-boy-trying-his best-to-win-her-back romantic comedy about a misunderstood tattoo-artist-biker called Vicious and a good girl named Daisy who ghosted him seven years ago after she came to her senses. It’s filled with funny twists, dreams of grandeur, and all seven members of the most inappropriate family in all of Colorado.

Excerpt
“Wanna go out there?” he asks me.

I don’t know what to say. I mean, not particularly. I don’t want to go out there. I want to stay in here with him.

I want to study every inch of this room.

I want to know this man.

Turning away from the open doors, I shake my head a little and once again concentrate on all the things in this space that give away hints to who and what he is.

The bed is just a mattress set on top of stacks of wooden pallets. It’s not made. But that just makes it more interesting, not less. His sheets and pillowcases are light gray satin, but his comforter is a dark gray luxurious velvet. I can only imagine what it feels like to sleep in his bed with those two contrasting textures on either side of your body.

Then I picture what it would feel like to lie next to him in that bed. To be his.

I let out a breath and allow my eyes to wander up the wall where there are more framed pictures. Magazine covers. Tattoo magazine covers, specifically.

And his face.

Vic Vaughn is Vicious, the cover in the center reads.

He’s standing next to me and I cannot stop the quick rotation of my head in his direction as I realize just who I am with. “You’re… him.”

“Him?” He smiles coyly. Then he nods his chin at the magazine covers. “I’m him. Wanna run away now?”

I shake my head, then whisper, “Not a chance.”

He closes the short distance between us, slipping behind me. And when his lips lower down to the exposed skin on the back of my neck, I have to suck in a breath and try my best not to shiver. His fingertips slide up my arms and then he slips them back down, taking my coat along for the ride. I turn to face him just as he slips his jacket off too. Then he walks over to a large, open closet and hangs them both on wooden hangers.

I don’t know why this simple act makes me tingle all over, but it does.

And he knows it does. I can tell by the way he’s looking at me.

“How old are you?” I ask.

“Way too old for you. What about you? Wanna admit to it?”

Not sure if I do. But I say it anyway. “Nineteen. Do you want me to leave now?”

“I think I want you to stay forever.”

Synopsis
It’s no secret that I hate Phineas Yates, but what most people don’t know is that I have a very good reason why. One hot summer, he broke my heart in the worst way, and I promised myself then and there that I would never fall prey to the sinner of Pembroke Prep again. Even if it meant re-inventing myself into a girl I barely recognized.

There is a fine line between duty and desire.

I’m not just any girl, I’m a princess. When my family begs me to get engaged to save the family name, I’m trapped with no way out. In a panic, I blurt out the ultimate lie and create myself a fake boyfriend. Which means I need someone to foot the bill immediately.

The problem? The only person willing to help me is the one person I never want to see again: the careless, heartless, hot-as-Hellfire playboy himself.

Phineas Yates.

The even bigger problem? His help doesn’t come for free. And this sinner won’t be satisfied with anything less than my absolute ruin.

Synopsis
After a bestselling fantasy writer disappears, only his biggest fan believes he’s in danger. Instead of re-reading his books, she must venture into the real world to uncover the truth in this fast-paced mystery by New York Times-bestselling author April Henry. For readers of Courtney Summers and Karen McManus.

Bridget is RM Haldon’s biggest fan. She and her mom sought refuge in Haldron’s epic fantasy series Swords and Shadows while her mom was losing her battle with cancer. When Bridget met Haldon at one of his rare book signings, she impressed the author with her encyclopedic knowledge of the fantasy world he’d created. Bridget has been working for him ever since as he attempts to write the final book in his blockbuster sword and sorcery series. But Haldon has gone missing, and Bridget is the only person who seems concerned. Can Bridget piece together Haldon’s cryptic clues and save him before it’s too late?

Master mystery-writer April Henry weaves another heart-stopping young adult thriller in this story that seamlessly blends suspense with an exploration of fan culture.

Excerpt #1
“I’ve seen you listening to your phone in other classes.” Ajay followed her to the big metal bowl of fruit. “I always thought it was music, but now I’m guessing it must have been a book. So what makes it worth getting your phone taken away?”

Inspecting an apple, Bridget tried to articulate her feelings. “First of all, it’s not just ‘a’ book. It’s a book by RM Haldon. All the books in the Swords and Shadows series are amazing. They’re filled with bravery, treachery and sacrifice.” She gestured at the florescent lights, the chipped linoleum floor, the hordes of students. “This is the boring real world, where Portland, Oregon and Portland, Maine are pretty much interchangeable. But in those books, there aren’t any high schools or WalMarts or Taco Tuesdays.”

“Hey, a lot of people like Taco Tuesdays,” Ajay objected, following Bridget to the cashier.

“And in those books you can never take anything for granted.” She handed the cashier her cafeteria card. “You know how if you watch a movie, there’s always certain characters you don’t really have to worry about?”

“Like the cute five-year-old who keeps saying surprisingly wise things?” Ajay offered. “But no matter how bad things get, that kid always survives the vampires or the earthquake or the serial killer or whatever.”

“Exactly.” Bridget picked up her tray. “In the Swords and Shadows series, a five-year-old could and maybe would die. And the reader might even have to watch.” She hesitated. Normally she sat on the edge of the cafeteria with a book, and Ajay sat in the middle, with friends.

“Want to eat outside?” he said. Now that the temperature was dropping, only a few people were sitting at the concrete benches and tables.

“Um, sure.” As they walked past his regular table, a couple of his friends nudged each other. He didn’t seem to notice. In the far corner, Derrick Dart was peering intently at his phone.

Outside, they found an empty table. Next to them, a couple was enthusiastically kissing. On the other side, a boy exhaled his vape smoke into his hoodie.

Ajay unzipped his backpack. “Okay, give me the basic run down of the plot.”

“For the whole series? That’s like explaining how the entire world works to an alien who just landed here.” But if anyone was up to the task, Bridget figured she was.

“Do the best you can.”

Synopsis
Cam Radcliffe is on a deadline to write his next blockbuster action film, but all he can think about lately is writing romance. The inspiration? His best friend, Reese.

They’ve known each other for years, but suddenly working in the same office has given him a whole new appreciation of her. Reese is driving him wild in the best possible way, and Cam only hopes it isn’t obvious. If she knew, he’s certain their friendship would reach The End.

So, of course, Reese figures it out. But the awkward, negative response he expected is nothing like the reality—like they’re living their own romcom.

A romcom that’s giving him the worst case of writer’s block at the absolute worst time in his career. Especially when the secret Reese has been forced to keep comes out…and threatens to ruin everything.

Excerpt
She didn’t push him away.

Or seal her lips together in shock.

She didn’t shout “What the hell are you doing?” Or knee him in the groin.

No.

She took. And then she gave back. Fisting her hands in his shirt. Moving her luscious mouth against his. Letting him sweep his tongue inside with barely a coax.

Jesus, she tasted good. Like cupcakes and sunshine. Like nothing he’d ever tasted before, her lips so soft and arousing, and pliable, that this had to be a slice of heaven.

His body wanted more. Wanted everything.

He abruptly pulled back. Took a step waayy back. He’d not asked for permission. Or inched his way closer so she had time to retreat. He’d been so overcome with desire for her—for gorgeous and cheerful Reese—that he hadn’t given a second thought to crushing his mouth to hers.

“Shit. I’m sorry,” he said, noting a well-kissed Reese was even more beautiful. He stifled a groan. “I don’t know what came over me.” Except I’ve been craving your mouth for months.

She blinked, stunned or swept away or pissed at him, he wasn’t sure.

“I got caught up in the moment. It won’t happen again.”

She covered her mouth with her hand. Stayed silent. Time slowed.

“Please say something. Tell me I didn’t just ruin us.” His heart beat an unsteady rhythm and his cheeks burned hot with shame.

“It won’t?” she asked softly.

“Was that a question or a statement? I couldn’t tell.” He swallowed thickly, shifted from foot to foot. “I’m being tortured here, Reese.”

Welcome to the blog tour for DAGGER HILL, a standalone young adult scifi thriller, by Devon Taylor

 

DAGGER HILL, a young adult scifi thriller, by Devon Taylor

DAGGER HILL by Devon Taylor

5 out of 5 stars

Synopsis
A young witch tries to unravel the mystery of who is framing her for dark magic in Georgia Bowers’ creepy YA debut fantasy, Mark of the Wicked.

Magic always leaves its mark.

All her life, Matilda has been told one thing about her magic: You use only when necessary. But Matilda isn’t interested in being a good witch. She wants revenge and popularity, and to live her life free of consequences, free of the scars that dark magic leaves on her face as a reminder of her misdeeds.

When a spell goes awry and the new boy at school catches her in the act, Matilda thinks her secret might be out. But far from being afraid, Oliver already knows about her magic – and he wants to learn more. As Oliver and Matilda grow closer, bizarre things begin to happen: Animals show up with their throats slashed and odd markings carved into their bodies, a young girl dies mysteriously, and everyone blames Matilda. But she isn’t responsible — at least, not that she can remember. As her magic begins to spin out of control, Matilda must decide for herself what makes a good witch, and discover the truth…before anyone else turns up dead.

 

 

 

 

 

 ————————————————————————————–

My Review
I was in the mood for something different, and DAGGER HILL delivered! Set in 1989, before everyone had a smartphone, four friends hang out during their summer before senior year, each dealing with different issues associated with coming of age, when the world as they know it comes crashing down around them in the form of a military plane. Before the plane crashes into Dagger Hill, the kids see someone parachuting out of it. And Gabe sees someone in a gas mask pick up and carry their injured friend, Kimberly, to safety. At least that’s what he thinks. Until the army begins to interview them and they realize something more is going on, and no one knows where Kimberly is. Or the man in the “bug” mask.

Plot
The story is gripping from early on and never lets go. The author uses a fun method for his storytelling — a combination of first person, newspaper articles, third-person, and interviews to bring his tale to life. It makes each chapter different from the last and helps reveal the information to the reader in a unique way. The plot unfolds at a steady pace with lots of twists and turns.

The Characters
The characters are awesome. Each of the main characters, Gabe, Sonya, Charlie, and Kimberly, are complex, with secrets, worries, and problems of their own as they try to hold onto childhood for one more summer. The adults, from Gabe’s police chief dad to Sonya’s scientist dad, to the army officials and doctors, are just as varied and complex as the main characters, making this more than just a plot driven tale.

Top Five Things I Loved About DAGGER HILL
1. Pacing. The story MOVES. But at the right pace. I stayed up late devouring the story but without becoming overwhelmed. It was perfect.

2. Setting. I love both the small town and the era it was set in. It feels modern, but without all the high-tech stuff that can interfere with a good thriller. Plus the music and movie references were a fun blast from the past.

3. Characters. While this is primarily a plot-driven tale, the character development is off-the-charts good and will stay with me for a long time.

4. Twists. So many good twists that left my jaw hanging open.

5. Storytelling. I love the way the author unfolds his tale using different techniques for a unique approach to a really unique story.

Bottom Line
Fabulous, fun, un-put-downable read!

Synopsis
Don’t show compassion for men. Never save a man’s life. And no matter what, never fall in love with someone you must ultimately kill. But some rules are meant to be broken, even if it means risking your life by betraying your valkyrie sisters.

The plan was simple—attack the Pits, kill the male slaves, save the women. But when Skaja runs into a fae man she can’t kill, she instead breaks all the rules to save him.

Prince Calle was sold into slavery by his jealous brother, and he would do anything to taste freedom again, even put his trust in a dangerous valkyrie. To protect his people and gain the throne, he and Skaja must trust each other. But neither of them expected trust to turn into something more, and the cost of love has a much steeper price than either of them anticipated.

 

 

 

 

 ————————————————————————————–

Excerpt #3
A wide stretch of muddied water slithered across the road ahead, and he released a weary sigh. His body wanted to collapse and sleep for a few years rather than finish the journey to meet his trusted family friend. His determination and need for survival were the only things that fueled him and kept him going forward.

But he wasn’t sure how much more he could endure.

He took one careful step and used a rock as a foothold, and then another step on a patch of muddy grass. On the next step, his foot slipped, and instead of catching himself with his left hand, he shifted his body at the last second, so his shoulder took the brunt of the fall.

Half his body lay soaked and muddied, and he wanted to lie there and rest despite the fast-approaching evening and the dangers lurking within the woods. He cursed his weak body. Six years ago, he would have made this journey easily. But now it felt as if he were crossing oceans rather than journeying to a nearby town.

“Get up.” Skaja’s voice broke through his haze of exhaustion.

The long stretch of clouds above shifted to allow the sunlight to break through. The rays stroked his skin, but it wasn’t enough to give him the energy he needed to continue forward. If he just had his magic…

She grabbed his chin, and he wearily opened his eyes to meet her brown gaze. Pretty eyes. Brown with flecks of gold to match her hair and wings.

Her bulletproof immunity and monstrous disfigurement is of great interest to a secret organization, but they aren’t the only ones. A cryptic tip alerts Lexi that something else hunts her–something darker.

Desperate to enjoy her life before it’s too late, Lexi leaves the protective cocoon her parents created for her and signs up for art classes at her local college. There she meets Conner, who is confined to a wheelchair, and they become friends who are willing to share each other’s secrets. But a chance encounter with Connor’s foster brother Killian changes everything.

Killian shares the same mysterious secret within his blood as Lexi. Their fateful meeting sets off a chain reaction of catastrophic events that exposes the terrifying truth–Lexi is a celestial queen of a bygone race. Connor is their last royal heir, and Killian is a half-breed abomination hated for his very existence. With Connor kidnapped by an ancient god determined to rid the world of the stain of humanity, Lexi and Killian find themselves under the protection of the secretive Order of Kings.

Lexi believes she’s been thrown into a world of myths and legends, but things are not as they seem. Lexi becomes convinced the Order is keeping dangerous secrets that threaten not just her but all of mankind.

Excerpt #2
A sound like a cannon boom follows.

The house rattles.

I jump and spin to face the window. A thrill of fear races up my spine. The hairs on the back of my neck stand on end.

“Scared of a little thunder and lightning?” Connor cocks a brow.

“No.” I wring my sweaty palms. “It just caught me off guard.”

Connor sniggers as his fingers brush the keys. A whisper of notes lull together, an eerie contrast to the brattle. But I can’t focus on the music. Something doesn’t feel right. Shadows loom on the lake from beyond the window. A familiar fear snakes its way into my heart, and I start to tremble. A memory of a shadow in the garden enters my mind, and with it, the whisper of other shadows and memories that’ve long evaded me. It’s like my heart remembers something my head forgot. Whatever it is, I now understand the fear etched in my parent’s faces. It isn’t a good feeling.

Another strike of lightening and a bang of thunder sounds. I step closer to Connor. My fingers dig into the back of his wheelchair. He plays on, not even noticing that I don’t follow his soft, melodious tune.

Killian appears on the other side of the room. His eyes wide and focused on the lake beyond the glass. He starts to walk toward me. He opens his mouth, but before he speaks, an impatient tapping echoes. I twist in its direction. It’s the front door.

“Dang, that’ll be the pizza delivery guy,” Connor says and ceases his playing. “Guess my one-man concert will continue after dinner.”

I don’t answer, I just watch Killian. He frowns, following the direction of the sound too. Nothing about his manner comforts me.

More tapping.

“Dad!” Connor throws both arms up in exasperation and starts to swivel the wheels of his chair. “Dad, get the door. We’re starving.”

“It’s okay, I’ve got it,” my mother’s voice calls.

“Mother.” I breathe her name and notice the urgency in Killian’s face. He doesn’t need to say another word. “No! Stop!”

Both Killian and I move in tandem. I’m faster though, as I race the length of the conservatory, back through the lounge and aim for the entrance hall.

Mother pauses, palm reaching for the door handle, when she stops to glance toward me. She frowns. I open my mouth to warn her, but father shouts something that distracts her, and she turns away, putting her back to the door.

The lock clicks, and cold air blasts into the front hall.

The room turns blue with another crack of lightening. I lift my arm to cover my eyes.

“Lexi!” Mother screams.

“Mother?” I try to blink vision back into my eyes.

A howl answers. A horrible, bone-shattering, menacing, wrong sound. Like a wolf’s cry, but guttural—wrong—monstrous.

More screams.

My eyes refocus.

There, in the doorway, Mother stares at me, clutching a length of metal skewering her blood-soaked belly—a sword, not dissimilar from the ones my father owns.

Crimson spouts from her lips.

Frozen in fear, I watch as Mother’s body slips off the blade, like hot butter falling off a knife. With a deafening thud, she hits the ground.

The creature wielding the bloody sword howls again. A long-limbed humanoid with gray skin and a dark, tattered hood.

My eyes fall back to Mother. I can’t look away. My heart is dying—it aches with each beat, threatening to give out.

My knees buckle. I brace myself for the fall. But I never hit the ground.

An arm circles my waist.

My captor forces me down, their weight pinning me to the floor.

I should struggle, but I’m frozen. Instead, I look up into gray-green eyes that lock onto mine, willing me to remember.

From the screenwriter of Rescuing Madison and
A Lesson in Romance on Hallmark

“[A] charming romance. Miller and Brody do a masterful job of pacing and plotting, while creating a hero and heroine readers will easily relate to. This sweet, G-rated contemporary should draw in Hallmark Channel devotees in droves.” ~Publishers Weekly

After a tough week that includes losing a big job opportunity and being dumped by her long-term boyfriend, Jenna Burke receives word that her beloved Aunt May passed away.

Traveling back to her Hawaiian hometown for the reading of the will, Jenna discovers she and her sister have inherited May’s dilapidated Victorian home on desirable beachfront land. The sisters can do whatever they want with the property, but there’s one catch: the house must be renovated before it can be sold, and Jenna has to oversee the work. Their Aunt even stipulated the contractor for the job—Ben Fletcher—who has a gift for making things beautiful again. He also has another skill: driving Jenna crazy.

Jenna vows to sell the property the moment the job is done. But as Aunt May’s broken old house starts to feel like home again, Jenna is torn between the life she’s been chasing in the city, and the one she’d left behind.

Excerpt #2
He sounded impressed, but Jenna’s smile turned wistful as her thoughts wandered to Terrace Pines. “But I guess sometimes having your happiness depend on others’ happiness is a risky proposition, right?”

“Maybe,” Ben agreed. ‘But isn’t that what it’s all about?”

“What what’s all about?”

His eyes found hers, and again they hung on too long. This time, however, Ben didn’t look away. “Love.”

Jenna felt as if she were being tugged down, like the specks in Ben’s gaze were magnets drawing her into him. She forgot about losing her pitch, or about all the reasons she’d left the island. Reasons she hadn’t come back. Or whatever it was it was they had been talking about. All she thought about now was another dimple in his jaw she’d somehow missed before. Another shade of blue hiding in his eyes.

“Uh. I wasn’t talking about love,” she managed.

“Sure you were,” Ben said. “My question was what do you love best about being an architect. And you told me. In life, in work, with people, love should be at the heart of everything we’re about.” He held her gaze for a heartbeat longer and then blinked, breaking the spell. Clearing his throat, Ben propelled himself back up to a sitting position and Jenna turned her attention elsewhere, anywhere that wasn’t warm and deep and inviting—or specked with gold.

“We should get back to banging nails,” he said, his voice uncharacteristically brusque.

A dreamy feeling had collected in the back of her throat, and Jenna swallowed it back. She was here to renovate Aunt May’s house, not swap googly eyes with the ruggedly handsome contractor slash romantic literature bard.

“Back to work,” she agreed.
