Lady of Regret (Songs of the Scorpion – Volume II)

by James A. West

Slaying a murderous lord has earned Rathe Lahkurin, the outcast Scorpion of Cerrikoth, no favors. Nobles, as it happens, frown on the killing of fellow noblesâ??unless they are the ones doing the killing.

On the run, Rathe and his companion seek refuge amid the Gyntor Mountains. They should have taken another route, for those savage crags are rife with stalking horrors, black sorceries, and men who have traded their humanity for wicked hungers.

But there are worse things hunting Rathe. A swordsman of shadow with a fondness for tormenting his victims. Devious monks of the Path of Knowing, men with a lust for magical power, especially that of the Wight Stone. Crazed townsfolk who like nothing better than to see an outlander cut to pieces.

Rathe has a sharp sword and sharper wits. At his side stands a pair of grubby waifs, brother and sister, with dark secrets all their own, and a strong ally with an obsession for feasting and women. But such weapons are small use against his greatest enemy, the ghostly Lady of Regret of Ravenholdâ??the Hunting Bitch and her Wardens of Tanglewood, an army that craves the warm blood of the living.

After I left for college, I thought I’d never see Eden again. But I found myself headed back four years later, destitute and unable to find a job anywhere else. Still, I was adamant nothing would keep me there for long. 

Then I met the intoxicating Dax Allard. Copper-colored eyes, skin that emanated an exceptional heat, and a host of strange talents… It wasn’t long before I was drunk on him.

But Dax’s past was darker than mine, teeming with ancient secrets. Falling for him could cost me my life.

I had two choices: walk away or deal with the perilous consequences.

It was no choice at all.

The Wolf’s Call (Two-Natured London)

by Susanna Shore

Wolves and humans aren’t an easy mix. But what if she weren’t a human?

“Are you trying to intimidate me, Mr Green?” she asked calmly, refusing to lean back.

“Call me Rafe.” But she just stared at him quietly, her arched brow challenging him to answer her question. It agitated his wolf, but he was so aroused he could barely breathe. He had never met a woman like her. “Yes, I am,” he answered, his every word deliberate. He pressed his hands on the armrests of her chair and leaned closer to her face, never breaking the eye contact. “Is it working?” Closing in the short distance, he kissed her.

Having been raised by humans-first parents, Charlotte Thornton is completely unprepared for a man like Raphael Green, a wolf-shifter. After a lifetime of controlling herself, the onslaught of emotions he causes in her, both lust and aggravation, seem like too much to handle. Unlike human men around her, Rafe is not weak. But neither is she, and Rafe is about to learn it. She finds herself drawn to him unlike any man before, only to learn that he won’t date humans. But what if she weren’t a human?

Rafe never thought he would pursue a human, let alone a woman as dominant as Charly, but his wolf side has other ideas. For a shifter, ignoring their beast’s choice is practically impossible, but he will try; his brother’s marriage is enough of a warning. But as he is drawn to her with a maddening lust, it becomes difficult to prevent his wolf from putting out its call for her. Then her life is threatened and everything changes.

From the high-end neighbourhood of London to peaceful countryside, their enemies hunt them. Time for making up their minds is running out.

Revised edition, October 2012.

Retrieved (The Shapeshifters’ Library)

by Amber Polo

Dog-shifters are once again pitted against the book-burning werewolves of Shipsfeather in this charming second installment of the Shapeshifters’ Library series.

Godiva Anglesey, Chocolate Labrador, and the ruggedly handsome English Mastiff Cynerik are forced to team up against power-hungry werewolves when Cynerik discovers an ancient Ohio mound that may hold answers to their shifter history in the New World. Knowing that the secrets of the mound could give the dog-shifters an advantage in the ongoing contest for power, Pack Alpha Sybilla challenges the timid Godiva to a battle for the territory. Godiva, who has no interest in battling anyone, must turn from running her small town library and train for a challenge she knows she has no chance of winning. She has enough on her hands with a malicious book-worm infestation, a censorship campaign, and a lawsuit. Just when she thinks things couldn’t get any worse, Godiva’s mother announces that family tradition dictates that Godiva must be married by Summer Solstice… to a Druid. Godiva doesn’t even know any Druids.

All Godiva ever wanted was to live a simple life, retrieving books for library patrons and keeping people happy. She’s no hero, and she doesn’t have what it takes to face down werewolves or save the world. Cynerik, however, believes differently.

Together they must find a way to defeat the werewolves, save the Shipsfeather library, protect the most important archeological discovery in dog-shifter history, restore the dogs to global power… and, just maybe, find love along the way.

Escana

by J. R. Karlsson

When troubled author Jakob Sandberg breaks free of the Clearer Minds mental institute, he finds himself falling into Escana, the world of his own creation.
Therein he must view the land through the eyes of his protagonist, a man tasked with killing six powerful individuals that threaten the stability of an empire.
Hounded by the law, Jakob’s fate is intrinsicly linked to many figures both kind and monstrous:

An innkeeper’s son is torn from his comfortable life and thrown into chaos after uncovering a murderer’s secret.
A farmer’s daughter flees the murder of her abusive former lover into the arms of something entirely worse.
A Warden uncovers old enemies and relives a painful decision in his task of upholding the law.
A woman schemes in high places against a former love at the feet of the Emperor himself.
A blacksmith’s past finally catches up with him and the consequences of his denials soon become fatal.
A sewer-dwelling fugitive attempts to undermine a tyrant with the help of a mysterious and powerful ally.
A desert creature is captive to the very beasts its kind hunted.
An assassin is exiled for a subversive truth implied and must exact vengeance in dangerous circumstances.

From the peaks of the white city of Levanin to the deserts of Sah’kel, these entwined characters drive the plot forth to its inevitable conclusion.

A conclusion that Jakob himself has never written.



Children of a Broken Sky (The Redemption Chronicle)

by Adam J Nicolai

The peasants called it “The Storm.”

On a cold autumn morning seven years ago, the sky exploded with silent lightning. In its wake, everything changed.

Now the sun rises in the south, if it rises at all. Animals go mad. Crops ripen and die overnight. The Church – a body of miracle-workers who can heal the sick and walk through fire – warns that God’s final judgment is at hand.

The world will soon end.

Now, stories tell of men that speak with beasts and peasants who work their own miracles. The Church decries these heretics, hunting them like animals and demanding the same of the faithful.

In a remote village, a small group of childhood friends are caught in the crossfire. Accused of heresy by the Church and sentenced to death, they escape their village as it burns behind them.

But some may find hope.

Their Church hunts them. A cursed world assails them. To survive, one of them will learn the true meaning of her beliefs; another, that some portents can be deceiving. But only one revelation has a chance to save them:

That they are not forsaken. They have each other.

Bestselling Kindle Suspense author Adam J. Nicolai invites you to a land beneath a broken sky, where sorceries clash with miracles, mountains are crowned with lightning, and faith – true faith – can topple empires.

Magic Unbound: Book One in the Fae Unbound Series (Fae Unbound Teen Young Adult Fantasy Series)

by Jill Nojack

Not-quite-sixteen year old Lizbet Moore expects a boring last month of summer vacation — and she gets what she’s expecting until a fifteen hundred year old Fae named Eamon shows up in her backyard disguised as a down-on-his-luck garden gnome. When Eamon slips an ancient amulet around her neck, the memories of Lizbet’s many past lives, including her first life as Morgan Le Fae, come slamming back to her to change her summer plans in a way she could never have expected.

Forced to go on the run when murderous monks show up at the back door, Lizbet hops a plane to Scotland accompanied by Eamon, the whispering voices of her past lives, and geekily cute James, the college boy from next door. Not only does she have to dodge the monks, but she’s racing against time and greedy land developers to prevent the entire race of the Fae from being destroyed.

The only thing Lizbet knows for sure is that if she fails and can’t produce a few live fairies at the end of her journey, she is going to be grounded for life…and probably for her next life, too.



The Haircut, a New Year’s Tale

by Donna Callea

Two days after Christmas, 1948, in a city that could be New York, a young woman prepares to get a life-altering haircut. She’s a princess, a post-war refugee, from an Eastern European principality that no longer exists. And she’s being forced by her guardians– her nefarious aunt and uncle– to marry an obscenely rich industrialist who’s got something of a hair fetish. The man, it seems, is aroused only by her amazingly long, glorious hair. So to save herself, she decides to get it all cut off. But she doesn’t count on falling in love with the handsome young barber who refuses, at first, to do her bidding. Nor does the barber count on becoming entranced by the strangest customer he’s ever encountered. Even after the severely shorn former princess is beaten beyond recognition for her act of rebellion, the barber, a widower still grieving for his late wife, finds her irresistible. Add to the mix Misha, an angel from the Old Country whose specialty is New Year’s Eve. Ultimately, “The Haircut” is a story that weaves whimsy with romance, plus more serious themes, as it underscores the timelessness and hope of the season in which it’s set.

Sometimes a superhero is just too powerful to enjoy life. But Londo (Valiant) Rand’s foes have temporarily blasted away his powers, leaving him to outrun a mercenary army across an otherwise deserted South Pacific island– accompanied by a beautiful woman, Lina O’Kelly. If they’re lucky they can reach safety until Londo’s powers return.

But Londo doesn’t want that, not yet. This is the one day in his life he’ll be able to touch someone without the potential of accidentally tearing them to shreds. Too bad that psychic Lina is acutely phobic to touch. What the world’s greatest superhero asks for is what she’s unable to give.

Can they escape terrorists, gales and ghosts to find haven? If they should fall deeply in love, how will they cope when Londo’s powers return and he’s too strong to hold Lina in his arms?

Lina begins to understand just how dangerous it is to get close to the galaxy’s most famous hero. Even his friends are plotting against her. Can she make Londo realize that all this can’t possibly work? Even above her own heart, she must protect his.

Recovered (The Shapeshifters’ Library)

by Amber Polo

“A fanciful read that remains loyal to its noble principles.”

–Kirkus Reviews

From the award-winning author of THE SHAPESHIFTERS’ LIBRARY series, RELEASED and RETRIEVED, comes the long awaited third installment.

Bliss D. Light was just an ordinary children’s librarian until one day she discovered she could grow a tail. Now her life is filled with more magic than any of the fairy tales she tells the children who gather at her feet at the Shipsfeather library. Like many of the other residents of Shipsfeather, Ohio, Bliss is a dogshifter, and her newly discovered ability to change from human form into that of a sleek white greyhound has left her yearning to know more about her true heritage. The answer to all her questions, she is certain, lies with the dogshifters’ long lost Library of the Ancients and, undeterred by the fact that thousands before her have searched, she sets out to find it.

Accompanied by her best friend Harry, a disgraced werewolf/dogshifter mongrel, and hotly pursued by the evil werewolf team of Sybilla and Blaze, Bliss’s quest takes her across the sacred sites and ancient mounds of the American Southwest. Though kidnapped by dogcatchers, sold into racetrack slavery and forced to fight wolf dogs to survive, Harry and Bliss never lose sight of their goalâ??or each other. Because the only thing more important than finding the ancient lost treasure might just be preserving what they already have found: an unlikely love that could be the first step toward bringing two ancient enemy races together.

99 Gods: War

by Randall Farmer

“War” is the first book of the 99 Gods Trilogy.

“I’ll make this short and sweet, as I’m not accustomed to public speaking in forums like this. As you’ve just seen, I can do miracles. My name is Dubuque, I’m a Living Saint directing God Almighty’s miracles, and I am but one of 99. We’re here to end national war, a new commandment sent by God, and our creators trained us in how to end wars. Beyond that, we’re here to do good.” So says Dubuque, a North American Territorial God, on the day of his arrival. The people of Earth, shocked and pleased at the sudden appearance of the 99 Gods, expect utopia.

However, instead of ending war, the Gods trigger many new conflicts and cause economic and political mayhem. In addition, they force many formerly hidden powers into the open. Conflicts soon arise between the Gods, between the Gods and these hidden powers, and between the Gods and ordinary people.

“These Gods remind me of puppy dogs,” Nessa, a marginally sane telepath, says. “House-training them is going to take a great many whacks on the nose. What happened to their sense of ethics and morality, anyway?” She and her slightly saner telekinetic husband, Ken, must deal with the 99 Gods because, much to their dismay, some of the 99 Gods have decided to attack them.

“I don’t even pretend to be as limited as a CEO,” the just-starting-out woman God Atlanta says. She will discover how much more complicated the God business is than her previous profession as a Marine aviator.

“With the 99 Gods around, though, where’s the need for faith? You can just go ask them,” Dave, a businessman, says. He is dying of cadmium poisoning and needs a miracle. He will, over time, learn the price of such things.

“Thy will be done. I submit myself to you. Whatever thou wilst, let it be done to me,” John prayed. He, an abnormally long-lived magician hunter and holy man, initially welcomed the Gods – until one of the Gods attacked him and marked him for death. How far will he go to defend himself against the Gods?

Hidden dangers from within and without will reveal themselves, testing all.

In what would be seen later as a rash decision, the government has encouraged its youth to vote – soon this spirals out of control as they decide to vote for each other… The analog past clashes with the digital future, and the world as we know it tilts slightly on its axis.

Reflecting Emmy: A Mirror, Mirror Mythology High Story (Mythology High (Mirror, Mirror Trilogy))

by Diana Rodriguez Wallach

“A fun, fresh and thoroughly entertaining modern twist on the Narcissus myth.” ~ Tera Lynn Childs, award-winning author of Oh. My. Gods.

Meet Emmy, Nara, Luke, Echo, and very infamous great grandmother, GiGi.

Eighteen-year-old Emmy is in the family business-trapping vapid narcissistic souls into her silver compact mirror for all eternity. It’s what the Rhamnusia family has been doing for thousands of years, all under the direction of Great Grandmother. Only Emmy’s latest assignment, Nara, is about to prove more challenging than she ever expected.

Gorgeous and self-absorbed, Nara is unflinchingly cruel to her classmates. Even her boyfriend, Luke, can no longer tolerate her actions–much to Emmy’s relief since she finds Luke a little more than intriguing. But when Emmy tricks Nara into gazing into her mystical mirror, what she finds there is not what she’s expecting.

Mirror, Mirror is the third set of Mythology High stories, which take classic myths and modernize them with teen heroines. Look for Nara Gazing, and Shattering GiGi to follow in October and November.



Rendezvous (Revelations)

by Spencer R. Johnson

Rendezvous is the first short story in a series of 9 character driven dramas, written by a budding author of contemporary short fiction, ghost writer, Spencer R. Johnson. Enjoy the experiences of this unique character, Revelations Resort.

Revelations Resort – Guests at Revelations Resort need not want for anything – the island’s sheer Caribbean beauty, tranquility, and mystique always fulfills a broader promise as it is more than just five-star. Once here â?? there is no other world. What can happen can be as spellbinding as the majestic vista from the island’s private summit, or as surreal as the turquoise blue pulsating waves caressing the alabaster shores. You should know, there will likely be unspoken desires, wrenching truths, explosive passions, and maybe even deep spiritual insights revealed. We are as certain of that as the sundrenched days and the star studded nights. It’s not good, bad or even indifferent â?? just simply, transformative. Revelations, it’s not a place for the inexperienced, or is it…?



Visible Through Darkness

by Auden D. Johnson

What if you were the only one? How strong would you be?

Ethics, morals, compassionâ?? what if they didn’t exist? What if the world treated those words as curses? Laws mean nothing. Commitment means nothing. Jade Greer’s parents taught her the old, moral, ways. She still clings to their teachings. The world rejects her. She has suffered. But, her storm is over. Or, is it?

****Excerpt****

His smile widened. His eyes rolled around in his head. He was going to say something that would ravage her already damaged body. An unusual call leads her to Serin, a prisoner trapped in darkness for twenty years. Saving him leads Jade to a world for beings with power. A world her parents were once a part of.

They were alone in a street she didn’t recognize. Good. No one would interfere.

She lunged at him. He fell backwards. She straddled his chest and beat her fist and her frustrations into his face. No one would care what she did to him. He made her relive everything this world represented and everything she couldn’t have. Her fists burned. No one would care. People were supposed to care. He wore a wedding ring. He had a wife and maybe children. This world didn’t raise people to honor such commitments. 

What Mom and Dad had was beautiful. She once wished for something like that. People like him turned that dream to ash. 

She punched and punched. He stopped moving. Why was she born into such an ugly world? Why couldn’t she be selfish like everyone else?

His face caved under her blows. Finally, something bent to her will. Her fist drilled though his skull. Jade’s blood sang. His head became bloody ground beef flecked with hard pieces. She punched concrete. She needed to stop. Her body wouldn’t listen. Sharp pain slid up her arms. Stop. Gore splashed into her face. Stop. Her body froze.

The Last Ruble – Part II – The Assassins by Key West Writer Joe D Wells

by Joe D. Wells

I wrote The Last Ruble – Part I – A Story is Born to setup this book – The Last Ruble – Part II – The Assassins. Part I introduces to the stories’ two main characters – Jack Rivers and Vladimir.

In Part I, you meet Jack who is an investment banker working for a small firm in Memphis. Jack has no fear and goes after the larger accounts which can only normally be obtained by the larger, well-known brokerage firms on Wall Street. But he never gives and up, finally getting his chance to trade the markets with the big boys. His clients are from the Middle East and have more in mind for Jack than just trading the markets for them. It seems his hard work and trait of never giving up has caught their attention and they send him off on a journey to look for hidden treasure.

Also in Part I, you meet Vladimir, who is a Russian soldier living in the early 1900’s, verse Jack who is living in present times. Vladimir and a group of other Russian soldiers are involuntarily recruited to learn to become Americans to try and save the sole survivor of the Russian royal family after the 1917 take over. All of the members of the Royal Family are executed but one. It becomes Vladimir’s job to get the baby out of Russian and to his new life in America at all cost. The baby carries a hidden secret which few know about, but are willing to die for to learn.

Now in Part II, both Jack and Vladimir continue their separate journeys. Jack on one hand is seeking to find the map to the sunken treasure, while Vladimir is trying to hide and protect his family from those who seek the map. Neither man knows one another in Part I, but their lives, which they are living in different times, begin to come together in Part II.

In Part II, Vladimir is put to the test about family loyalty. He lost his first family in Russian (Part I) and wonders if he will ever see them again. Then again in Part II, after getting his second family to America, he is put to the test so hard he considers ending it all to escape the horror brought into this life.

In Part II, both men are in New Orleans. Jack is searching the past for Vladimir, who leaves New Orleans many years before Jack arrives, but Jack finds clues, which leads him to Key West, were he learns more about Vladimir and in turn he is cursed with the knowledge of the King’s hidden treasure, which is handed down to him, by no other than Vladimir.

Along the way, both men encounter good and not so good situations. Some funny and some not so funny.

And yes, then will be a third book. I have already starting thinking about it.

From Her Blood

by Julie Geistfeld

Book 3 of the HER BLOOD series.

From her blood a new hope was born.

From her blood a call echoed.

He wanted to learn about a past that had touched his life from the moment he was born. He wanted a piece of her he had never really seen. What he found when he landed in that desert valley was a place that cried out to his spirit and awakened a desire which had been dormant inside him.

When he found her past, he found a reason to let love in.

When he awakened her past, he discovered the strength that flowed to him FROM HER BLOOD.

Ryan always understood what he was. He understood his origins and had peace with the past. So when he sets out to discover a glimpse of his mother’s beginnings he has no idea what his father’s repeated warnings mean. “Don’t awaken your mother’s past.” Well, he’s curious after that.

When he flies into Sun Valley on a clear spring day he discovers an oasis that captures his heart and a girl who captures his dreams. It doesn’t take long before his promises start to unravel and when his mother’s past comes to life, so does Her Blood, which is fueled by a desire to protect the things he loves.

FROM HER BLOOD came life.

FROM HER BLOOD came strength.

And FROM HER BLOOD came a love that he is just beginning to understand.
