The Scarlett Smith Chronicles (Southern Vampire Detective Boxed Set Book 1)

by Selene Charles

Completed Boxed Set!

Book 1

Meet Scarlett Smith, Southern Vampire Detectiveâ?¦

Well, at least that’s what she is today. Not too long ago she was just a regular Southern Belle in love with her soldier, dreaming of a life full of babies and white picket fences.

Then she died.

Now she’s a vampire in a shifter’s world trying to make sense of her sudden thirst for blood and her strange ability to read the emotions off of others. Especially as it pertains to deathâ??she and death have a strange affinity for one another now, but best not to dwell on that subject too long. She’s still totally just a normal girl, except now she solves murders and drinks a little type-O on the side. No big deal, she’s certainly nothing special or amazing…right? Except every once in a while she senses something stirring inside of her. Something dark. Something ancient. And something very, very powerful. But for now it’s just easier to pretend she’s nothing more than a vampire with a badge and a gun who just so happens to have the hots for not one, but two different shifters one of whom is her step-brother.

No one ever said being dead would be easy.

Book 2

My name is Scarlett Smith. And I’m a vampire who was raised by a pack of wolves. Little crazy, I know. But let’s not get hung up on semantics here. Because I’ve got a story to tell.

There’s something inside of me. A darkness. And she’s really starting to make herself known, think Harley Quinn on ‘roids and you might get the picture. She’s powerful and definitely unhinged, but I don’t have time to focus on that right now because I’ve got bigger fish to fry.

From the Alpha shifter on trial for breaking the unbreakable oath to a local vampire clan wanting me to party like it’s 1699, I’m in neck deepâ??pun intended. Have no fear though. I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeves and some unexpected allies in my corner. Sure, there are bound to be a few surprises along the way, and I’m guessing they aren’t all good. But, no one ever said being dead would be easyâ?¦

Book 3,

Scarlett Smith is back, but this time the stakes couldn’t get any higherâ?¦

Mercer and I we shouldn’t have done what we did at the Infantes Castle, not killing the vampires, cuzâ?¦let’s face it, they totally deserved to die. No, the other thing. Binding ourselves to each other. Mating. The cost was too high. And now, our love might make us lose everything we hold dear.

Now we’ve been summoned to Georgia to meet with the Alpha Council. Clarence is guilty of conspiracy to commit murder against his pack, but somehow he’s only gotten a slap on the wrist for it. Something’s just not right. I know it and so does Merc, but we’re helpless. We have to go to Georgia, we have to fight to save Silver Creek. But when we get there and I find out what the council really wants me to give up, I’m not sure I can. I’m not sure I will.

But a betrayal is coming for me. A big one, one that will shatter all the things I’ve ever believed in or held sacred. And before three days are up, the world as I know it will never be the same again.

Join me on the explosive finale that you are sure to never forgetâ?¦

by Harmony Hart

Welcome to Salem, where paranormals of all kinds live in harmony. Mostly.

She also finds out that she’s stuck in Salem. Forever.

But once the Coven assigns her a magical tutorâ??the drop-dead gorgeous Professor Beauregard Bacchusâ??and she makes friends with a real fairy princess, things start to look up.

All she has to do now is learn to navigate a new town full of witches, vampires and shifters, manage a magic shop, pass her first wand exam, and maybe flirt a bit with the handsome paranormal bachelors in her new town.

Oh, and find the shop owner’s real killer before Salem’s bumbling moose-shifter deputy tosses her in jail for murder.

Suddenly, this witch’s life isn’t so basic anymore.

Then the unthinkable happens.

Karus and the Ninth are transported to a strange place, far away from the Britannia they knew.

A young woman is discovered in a dungeon, where she has been abandoned and left to starve. Inextricably linked with Karus’ own destiny, she may be the key to salvation, or worse, the instrument of destruction for the Ninth.

Cast adrift in a terrible war, Karus must find his way through the mysteries of this unfamiliar world, one that is filled with true magic, strange alien races, evil gods, and dragons. More importantly, Karus must discover his destiny, and complete a desperate task set for him by a god of Rome. Should he fail, it will mean certain destruction for the Ninth, the triumph of evil, and the rise of a new order.

Lost Legio IX is the first book in this exciting series.

Scales: A Fresh Telling of Beauty and the Beast

by Alydia Rackham

Princess Eleanora is very different from her younger sister, Oralia. While Oralia is golden-haired, sprightly and adored by all the men of the kingdom, Eleanora is ebony-haired and dark-eyed, and even-keeled. Wandering musician Amber of the Lute glimpses that difference right awayâ??and his laughter and color bring out a sparkle in Eleanora. But this arouses vicious jealousy in Oralia, who acquires and casts a terrible spell on her sisterâ??one that twists both the body and the mind. A spell that can only be broken by one who can see into Eleanora’s heart, and love her enough to set her free.

Excerpt from Chapter Nine:
“All the way across the roof, near the foot of the opposite tower, stood a person. Full in the waning white moonlight. Her face tilted toward the shrouded sky.
The light shimmered against her smooth, fine scales, making them look like liquid silver, and it softened the slender curves of her body. The fans near her face had calmed, and rested against the sides of her neck. Her large eyes reflected a luminous shine as she gazed, unblinking, at the moon. Watching it withdraw behind the clouds. The black shadow of the tower fell across her long, sweeping tail. Thus, from where Amber stood, he could have mistaken her for a pale young woman dressed in blues and whites.
Except for the bearing of her features.
Her gazeâ??vacant. Barren as a waterless sea. Her mouthâ??incapable of speech, of smiling or frowning. Her expression blank, and immovable. She stared, without pondering. No thought lived behind those eyes, or flickered at the corners of those lips.
A silver serpent. Still and silent as ice. Inhuman as stone.”

Reader Review from Patreon:
“The subtlety here is wonderful – nothing seems overdone and like any good fairytale, the familiar elements allow us to take a shortcut to the core of the story. We’re all familiar with jealous suitors and jealous siblings and handsome men with flashing blue eyes, but from poor Ailse to Amber (who listens better than he claims to), you can feel a sort of presence underneath their actions… something that is thinking very fast to reconcile the past and the future and move the people around them to the right places. Of course Oralia is the shining example here, pushing off her suitors on her sister when she doesn’t want them and picking them up again when she needs to make someone jealous, but what is she really after? She surely knows the obstacles to marrying a minstrel, and she of all people seems likely to go after power, not talent. Sir Roderick thinks he knows how to drive Amber away from Oralia and have her to himself, but does he understand how Oralia works at all? And then there’s Ele, and somehow by being her quiet, reserved self she manages to have a good old time in her simple dress with her enchanting minstrel friend. I was expecting her to be at the center of some sort of disaster at the feast, but she knows herself and her sister too well for that. I’m also impressed by her mother’s choice to let her have her independence and not force her to play to her sister’s whims. This whole cast looks to be a shade quicker on the uptake than your average fantasy court – another thing I always liked about the old fairytales. I can’t wait to meet the witches and see these clever people put to the test!” -Melissa

War-Born: The Warring Realm (The Warring Realm Series Book 1)

by Aaron D. Schneider

Two-thousand years of war just met its match.

For Lieutenant Lucius “Luce” Bollham, things have been going from bad to worse since the caves of Afghanistan. First, ostracized by his brothers in arms, now the possibility of being tried as a war criminal. You’d think getting away from it all would be a relief, but where you escape to matters.

Luce’s “escape” takes him to the magical Twilit Kingdom of Other-Realm where he finds himself thrust into the midst of a war nearly two thousand years old.

And he thought Afghanistan was tough…

Caught between mind-bending sorcery, ancient grudges, and intrigues among aeon-old beings, Luce must gather the forces of the kingdom and revolutionize their idea of combat before enemy legions march across the land. Witchery and swordplay pair with assault rifles and asymmetrical warfare to stop an adversary who seeks nothing less than utter conquest.

Oh, and there is a woman–when is there not? Except she’s a centuries-old warrior-sorceress with blood under her nails and fire on her lips. Bryth is just the kind of gal you want around in a world where curses can kill and dark things stir.

In the midst of all the madness, Luce has to decide what it is he is actually fighting for.

Out of the frying pan and into the inferno, as they say.

“Aaron’s writing reminds us that we read for the journey, not the destination. Shades of Tolkien can be glimpsed in this beautifully written, beautifully imagined epic war-story. It’s Call of Duty meets Lord of the Rings. If you love military fantasy, don’t miss this trilogy.” -USA Today Bestselling Author, AL Knorr.

The Warring Realm Series contains some language and disturbing scenes. It was written for mature audiences.



Demon Zero: An Urban Fantasy Adventure (Dark Matter Book 1)

by Randall Pine

“The best new urban fantasy series in years!”

The city of Templar has always been a little strange. Monsters slither out of the lakes, a zombie rises up every few years, and from time to time, some of the people go missing for no reason. But the supernatural occurrences have been happening more and more frequently lately, and it may have something to do with the all-powerful demon that’s living in Mrs. Grunberg’s basement.

When local slackers Simon Dark and Virgil Matter decide to investigate the mysterious presence in the cellar, they set off a chain of events that will change Templarâ??and themselvesâ??forever. They don’t know anything about demons. They don’t know anything about magic. But they know that Templar needs some heroes to fight against the growing supernatural darkness, and with the help of a sharp, attractive empath and an old, cantankerous wizard, they just might be able to send the evil demon back to hell.

Or they’ll be blinked out of existence trying.

In Demon Zero, author Randall Pine tells an action-packed story of sorcery and adventure that sets the stage for a fun, funny, and thrilling new series that “fits perfectly in the classic canon of the world’s best urban fantasy.”

The Seeker (Shadow Wars Book 1)

by Frederikke Byron

Demons, fireballs, the occasional visit to jail and lots and lots of detention – these are all things I can handle. A demonic stalker, however, who not only stalks me during the waking hours, but also gives me vivid nightmares, and has a paralyzing fear power, is not something I signed up for.

No, my power chose me, and I can’t give it back. No matter how much I want to.
I need answers, though. Need to find out who I am, why my family fled to America, and why my mother was killed. So, when a stranger shows up and offers me a place at a university for â??Magi’, gifted people like me, I jump at the opportunity, not reading the fine print.
The school is for boys only, and I’m the first girl ever to attend.

A shifter novel set in the same world as, the bestselling, Chosen and Program series

Saturday night is shifter nightâ?¦
It’s that one night of the week when the shifters head into Sweetwater to blow off a little steam. Sometimes, when they’re lucky enough, it’s to find a mate â?¦ a sweet, human mate â?¦ since shifter females are in such short supply.

Winston wishes it was his turn to find a partner because he’s done with all the screwing around. Done with all the meaningless one-night-stands. He might head into town when it’s his turn, but he’s staying far away from temptation. He’ll wait until his name comes up on the mating list and then he’ll settle down.
His good intentions are blown to hell when he meets Ana, a timid female struggling with an event from her past. Who is this beautiful creature? This broken, sad shadow of herself. Winston promises to help her. Hell, they’ll help each other. He might have vowed celibacy but he’s not dead. Not by a long damn shot. This way, he can spend time with a beautiful female without any expectations and in return, he’ll help her get over her fears.
Problem is though, friends should not be this attracted to one another. They definitely shouldn’t be this intrigued by each other. Keeping his hands off of her is becoming an impossibility. Will he be able to let her go when the time comes? Thing is, he’s not so sure anymore.

No cheating and a guaranteed HEA. Mini-cliffhanger ending.
Contains hot alpha males and therefore strong sexual themes/language
*Beware of spoilers in the reviews below*



A Goose Girl: A Retelling of The Goose Girl (Entwined Tales Book 1)

by K. M. Shea

As a royal lady’s maid, Rynn has one task: Escort the princess of Astoria to her intended’s kingdom and return home. Unfortunately for the former goose girl, the princess has other plans.

When her charge flees, Rynn’s not only forced to take the princess’s place, but she must also contend with a spiteful fairy horse, a good dose of political intrigue, and Conrad…the mysterious and all-too observant lord who consumes more of her thoughts than he should.

But with war looming on the horizon, Rynn stands to lose more than her heart. Can she convince the princess to return, end the charade, and make peace between the kingdoms?

More importantly, can she possibly avoid a death sentence when the truth is revealed?

A Goose Girl is a romantic fairy tale novella. It can be read on its own but is more fun when read as a part of the Entwined Tales, a series of interconnected fairy tales by six different authors. Each story follows the adventures of one of seven children from the same family as they seek out their own happily ever afters in spite of their reluctant fairy-godfather.

by B.W. Saturday

His parents died. His uber religious aunt raised him. His cat will teach him how to live life.

Dilbert Brown thinks that his life is just fine. It’s routine, it’s bland, it’s nothing special, but his cat Benny thinks otherwise. He convinces Dilbert that a night out with his coworkers is what he needs to try and introduce a little fun in his life. The night quickly takes a left turn and Dilbert finds himself running for his life. Benny and his feline squad must try and find Dilbert before it’s too late. Dilbert’s coworkers and family join in the search, but past faces, present enemies, and future uncertainties send the group through different emotional and physical twist and turns. As events unfold in the world of Dilbert Brown, Benny learns that there are more eyes on him that he would like.

The Pathetic Life of Dilbert Brown contains mystery, romance, adult/dark/silly humor, secret secrets, some other worldly stuff thrown in ,a pinch of fantasy and a talking cat that doesn’t play by human rules.

Note from the author: The style of this book is unorthodox…to be honest i didn’t know how i wanted to write it. The one thing i knew is that i want the reader to become each and every character and hear them in the voice of their choosing. I wanted to build a world that everyone felt a part of. Not just by reading the words, but by becoming a part of the universe itself.
