AN ANCIENT CURSE. A KINGDOM IN PERIL. ONE FAERIE TO SAVE THEM ALL…


Darkness is spreading across the kingdoms—and one faerie stands between destruction and survival. Aurora’s peaceful existence is shattered by an unexpected tragedy that leaves her as the last surviving heir to the throne. But her reign is threatened before it can even begin.

Her court swells with spies and traitors. There are growing tales of a mysterious blight. Strange riders abroad are hunting for something—or someone.

On the day of her coronation, she and her loyal friend, Percy, the newly appointed Flight Captain, discover an ancient prophecy sealed away and guarded in a secret chamber beneath the castle. There they uncover a sinister plot that will spiral her people into a war they cannot win on their own. Her courage and wit will be her greatest weapons if she hopes to succeed where others have failed. She must ask herself just how far is she willing to go to save her kingdom and at what costs?


Excerpt:

She stepped through the frozen archway into a wide atrium, white with freshly fallen snow from the crumbling rafters above. The beauty found within stole her breath away. The floor and twisting pillars glittered like powdered diamonds. Towering murals carved from stone stretched along the walls, but time, unfortunately, had weathered them to the point they were no longer distinguishable. There, she might have learned who once dwelled here.

 

A glance at the branching rafters and flying buttresses confirmed it had not been built by dweor. They were not this proficient. Neither had it been built by men, faeries, or elves.

 

Oh, if Mitas could see this. Thinking of him made her smile.

 

If one didn’t look too closely, she would have almost believed the fortress had simply been abandoned. But the frostbite marks and shattered entrance told another story and the savagery the monster committed within these walls. These men had died without ever delivering a stroke. There was no doubt that when the white demon decided to take up residency here, it had killed all the denizens within.

 

Likely, they were the first to step foot in these once proud halls after centuries untold. Likely, as well, the goblin didn’t care about such things. He had already moved on into the great hall, just beyond the next arch.

 

She was then swept inside a colossal high-arched chamber, an arrow shot long. In every corner of the great hall stood towering statues of winged stags, chiseled and polished to perfection from pale stone. Icicles, as long as spears, hung and glittered from their antlers. The only light swept through a large hole through the great glass dome situated high above the keep.

But Skean didn’t seem to notice any of these things, his eyes glued to the great yawning archway at the other end of the hall, almost as wide as the castle was tall. The darkness within looked ominous. Aurora stood beside him as he quietly observed the large space ahead. All that remained of the gate was now scattered stone.

 

“What do you think is in there?” she asked softly.

 

Skean didn’t say anything or simply ignored her. He took one brave foot forward, when a disembodied voice, deep and venomous, shook the hall. With it, a cloud of cold air rolled across the floor, freezing as it went.

 

“I thought I smelled…a rat.”

 

Skean froze, and Aurora’s knees locked as something stirred beyond the archway. Something big. From the darkness she’d perceived as vacant before, four eyes, as piercing and cold as blue ice, watched them.

 

Aurora drew in a cold breath.

 

Impossible!

We wanted to give authors a powerful place to promote their books, and budget-conscious readers a way to save money, in a newsletter people actually want to open. We’ve seen a decline in the efficacy of other promotional sites. We saw a niche we could fill and have the passion to do things in a new and refreshing way.” – Kate Barnes, Co-Founder and CEO

Two friends. One pact. The performance of their lives.

Hannah Abbott is stuck in a dead-end relationship and at a job she loves but that barely pays the bills. The four walls of her tiny New York City apartment have never seemed so small. She’s barely toasted her thirtieth birthday when her old college friend Will knocks on her door with an unexpected proposal.

Will Thorne never forgot the marriage pact he made with Hannah, but he also never imagined he’d be the one to initiate it. One ex-fiancée and an almost-career-ending mistake later, however, he finds himself outside Hannah’s door, on bended knee, to collect on their graduation-night pinky promise.

With both of their futures at stake, Hannah and Will take a leap of faith.

Now, all they have to do is convince their friends and family that they’re madly in love. As long as they follow the list of rules they’ve drafted, everything should go smoothly. Except Will has never been good with rules, and Hannah can’t stop overthinking the sleeping arrangements. Turning thirty has never been so promising.


Excerpt:

Hannah’s eyes widened at the boulder-sized princess cut diamond in front of her. Her heart dropped—Brian. A few hours ago, she’d been debating breaking up with him. Was he really proposing on the dirty hallway floor? Hannah blinked rapidly, trapping tears she knew were coming. She’d brought up engagement six months ago. He’d scoffed and disappeared for a week, reemerging with a tan and few apologies. But here he was on bended knee. She turned her attention from the ring to the man kneeling in front of her—the man who was not Brian.

            She took in the older, leaner version of the boy she had once known. Memories flooded her brain—study sessions, drunken nights, Wilderness concerts, a graduation-night kiss, and finally, the image of him draped over yet another girl, this one in a bridesmaid dress.

            “William Thorne,” she said derisively. Her body buzzed, adrenaline coursing through her. She’d wanted it to be Brian—for him to have finally figured out that he wanted her for more than just the foreseeable future.

She turned her attention back to Will. He remained on one knee but had lowered the ring. A smile, halfway between questioning and amused, played across his face. “This is amazingly uncomfortable. Why do people propose like this?”

“Knights, courting, et cetera and so forth,” Hannah said absently, waving him into her apartment. She peeked around the door, but fortunately, it was late enough that the hallway was empty.

Will stood, pocketed the ring, and came in hesitantly despite his initial grand entrance. Hannah watched his eyes travel around the room, taking in the small clues littered throughout the apartment before focusing on her laptop, which still had a picture of the two of them open. Great first impression.

            “You seem surprised to see me,” he said, turning his full attention and the power of his perfect smile on her.

             She should’ve felt surprise at Will’s sudden appearance, but she didn’t. And not just because she’d just gotten a friend request from him—this was completely and utterly a Will thing to do. And really, she should’ve been expecting him.

            “Well, you are a day late.” On top of the last half a decade. Even as Hannah thought it, she knew she had a hand in those lost years. In the end, it wouldn’t matter—not for them. They would still be Will and Hannah. She knew it, and by the contented expression on Will’s face, he knew it too.

Seymour, a down-and-out former teacher and semi-alcoholic who is haunted by the death of his girlfriend, tells the story of how he lifted himself out of grief and apathy. The catalyst is a mystery man – Raymond C. Dasher – who enters Seymour’s life via a chance encounter and persuades him to accept a job as a professional griever. A series of adventures follow, some macabre, some sinister, some extremely funny, as Seymour encounters an improbably diverse but highly credible set of characters united only by the fact that all are interacting in some way with death. Most complex is Milton Lasker, a former mobster whose relationship with Seymour is ambivalent, to say the least – even his overtures of help are terrifying. But then there’s Yvonne, who reminds Seymour what it’s like to feel alive. The Physics of Grief is a unique, quirky crime novel presenting the upside of funerals and a hopeful look at second chances – and at death.

Excerpt (Use this to find the answers for the puzzle and the word search)

Excerpt From: Nina Crespo. “An Officer and a Fortune”

Weaving through the growing crowd at the outdoor market, Nicole glanced left and right. Just as she was about to give up her search, she spotted the herbs and a host of leafy green vegetables. Harris Farms…that was the vendor she was looking for.

But the baskets were almost empty.

Picking up the pace, Nicole moved to the side, squeezing between the people strolling down the center aisle and the ones perusing items at the stalls.

Almost there…

A few steps from the table, a dark-haired woman cut in front of Nicole and set down the numerous full bags she’d been carrying at her feet. Leaning over the table, she blocked the rosemary basket as she flagged down the vendor. “Do you have more basil? What’s out here is wilted.”

“Pardon me.” Nicole tried to snag some of the rosemary, but the woman calling out to the vendor wouldn’t budge.

Releasing a sigh of frustration, Nicole scooted around her, battling the crowd like a salmon swimming upstream. By the time she made it to the other side of the woman, only one bunch of rosemary tied with a thin red band remained.

As she reached for it, a familiar woodsy cologne and alluring body heat surrounded her like an embrace. Distracted from the basket, she glanced left at the guy standing there. It was him.

Stunning coppery eyes met hers, and her thoughts short-circuited, leaving her mouth momentarily uncensored. “You are so…” She barely swallowed the rest of her sentence, preventing it from slipping out. Gorgeous.

“I’m what?” He picked up the last of the rosemary. The corners of his eyes crinkled slightly as his mouth quirked up with a quizzical smile.

Nicole pointed to the tied bunch of herbs in his hand. “You are so lucky. That’s the last one.”

“It is? I guess I am.” The deep tone of his voice settled inside of Nicole, making her tingle from the inside out. As he held her gaze, she couldn’t bring herself to look away.

Stop staring! What was wrong with her? She was acting like he was the first sinfully hot guy she’d ever laid eyes on.

His gaze moved from her face to her free hand, still hovering in the air.

She snatched up some parsley.

Okay, it wasn’t what she came for, but she’d looked silly just standing there practically drooling over him…

When Emmy Russo returns to high school in Moncks Corner, South Carolina after summer break, she discovers some changes. First: Mom has a boyfriend. Second: the cute new student, Charlie Fields, is a Rockabilly greaser with a gang who obeys his every command. Third: attractive Keir Harper wants to be more than just her best friend. And fourth: a perplexed Emmy soon finds herself drawn to two extremely different boys. How do you choose between sweet and smoldering?

Then tragedy strikes on desolate Thunder Road. Strange things start happening, with Emmy in the middle of it all. Intent on finding the truth, she must fight for her heart, her life, maybe even her soul. Because someone wants to possess all of Emmy. And they will be together, no matter what the cost. For eternity.

Excerpt:

I hadn’t expected that. And I wasn’t sure I wanted to respond. The old me, the good girl from New Jersey, wouldn’t have choked. She would have told Charlie to take a hike. But the new me didn’t want to let him go. 

What was it about this strange boy with greased hair that attracted me so?

“What’s the matter, New Jersey? Cat got your tongue?”

My face flushed. “Why don’t you quit asking me ridiculous questions and do something that you’re good at?”

“What’s that?”

“Drive, Teddy Boy.”

One of Charlie’s brows tipped upward in a cocky salute. His knuckles whitened as he gripped the T-shifter, while rivers of veins formed on his muscular forearm. With a look of steely determination etched on his face, he slammed the shifter into first gear and jammed the accelerator pedal to the floor. The car rocketed forward. My head slammed against the seatback, and I dug my nails into the black tuck and roll upholstery.

“You scared, New Jersey?” Charlie asked, his eyes aflame.

“No,” I said as the blood left my face.

“Then hang on, baby, ’cause you’re about to go for the ride of your life.”
