Next Century

by H. C. Turk

NEXT CENTURY tells the same story set in three different eras and locales: 1799 (London), 1999 (Midwest America), and 2099 (the Moon). In each story, a young woman (Claire) seeks vengeance against her father, who has been abusing her mother for years. In each era, Claire is raped by thugs, becomes pregnant, and has to proceed in society with her child but no legitimate father.

*Revised 2018*

Book 1: London, 1799. Playing with a lad named Walter, Claire Easton learns that boys are sent to school for an education, though girls are taught to sew at home. She learns of social punition by seeing her mother receive a caning from her husband for not having born an heir.

As a young adult, Claire tries to gain employment, but is reviled for behaving like a man. Seeing her mother beaten once too often, Claire goes to Walter. She convinces him to lead her to a thugs’ roost, where Claire will purchase a thrashing for her father. Instead, thugs force Walter to have sex with Claire. The men are enjailed, and Claire becomes pregnant.

Claire is fired due to her wanton behavior. But her employer’s son, Richmond, proposes marriage. Claire accepts. After the child is born, Claire petitions for Walter’s release from prison. She tries to achieve an emotional bond with her husband, but fails. Two years later, hearing that Walter will be freed, Richmond kills himself.

Though not in love, Claire and Walter are together in life. Claire now understands that she can best succeed not by attacking society, but by progressing with her living. In 1825, Claire, Walter, and their daughter leave for America.

Books 2 and 3 tell the same story modified to account for the different settings and societies: Mid-West America, 1999; and the Moon, 2099.



Falling For Him

by Khardine Gray

Some men should come with a warning sign� 

Something like - 

Caution Beware of Playboy!

And, an arrow pointing to the fine print which should say something like –

â??He’s great if you want wild fun, and great sex but don’t expect him to be committed to you.’ 

That was the sign I wanted to place on Tristan Bouchard, my best friend. 

Yes, my best friend was the biggest playboy I’d ever met in my life, but he took care of me. We had this special relationship that somehow worked and we lived together.
I knew every single thing there was to know about this man. I’d had years of seeing him in action. 
Him with his Hollywood good looks, incredible physique, fantasy muscles, and eyes of the purest blue that could make you melt. 
He could charm the panties right off you, and you’d lose your mind before you knew what hit you. 
I knew this all too well. So well I could write a book.

I knew it even as that stupid note in our friendship box made us cross the line and become more than friends.
I knew it even as I reminded myself that this new thing that we had was just for fun.
I get it.
Some women like wild, no strings attached fun.
I understood perfectly that, that was what this was.
Fun. A Fling…
Soâ?¦ all I have to do is repeat these words to myself every day, and ignore what my heart tells me.

Don’t fall for him, Don’t fall for him, Don’t fall for him.
I’ll be fine if I do that.
Right?

If you like hot, steamy, romance with gorgeous, drool-worthy Alpha’s you will like this book.

Falling For Him is a full-length stand-alone novel with a deadly gorgeous alpha and a happily ever after.

Made In New York: A Christmas Short Story (Made In Series, Book 0.5)

by Ana Newfolk

Isaac’s trip to New York just before Christmas was supposed to serve a single purpose, learn as much as he could about running an LGBT Youth Center to take back home and make those much necessary improvements to the youth center he ran in his native Portugal.

Max’s love of the Christmas season was only surpassed by his love for the LGBT Youth Center he volunteered at, and his job as a nurse. One last speech about sexual education for LGBT young people at risk at a conference in the same center was all that separated Max from getting started with his Christmas celebrations.

Isaac didn’t count on needing to be rescued from a fire by a strapping brown-eyed nurse.
Max didn’t count on Christmas coming early in the shape of a curly-haired man with the most bewitching pair of eyes he’d ever seen.

With 48 hours left in New York, Isaac never thought he’d get an offer he just couldn’t resist.
Suddenly, the chill in the air isn’t enough to stoke the fire that now burns in a completely different way to the one that brought Isaac and Max together.

This book contains 17500 words.
Book 0.5 in the Made In Series although it can be read as a standalone.
