Now he just has to convince Hannah that the man she wants looks a lot like him.

Theo Kershaw is the luckiest guy alive. 


Roaring back from a life-threatening injury, he has the world at his skates as defenseman for his new team, the Chicago Rebels. Everyone adores his big personality, his on-ice talent, and his killer smile. Everyone but his prickly neighbor - or so he thinks. One chilly Christmas Eve, he'll learn that maybe the girl next door isn't such a hater after all ...


Elle Butler is the most embarrassing person on the planet. 


How else can the ex-military-now-bartender explain her crush on the hot jock who lives across the hall? True, he has gorgeous green eyes and perfect cheekbones, but the filter between his brain and too-sexy mouth is permanently malfunctioning. Yet she can't stop checking out his Instagram antics or sneaking looks at him when he's in her bar. So. Mortifying. Running from a past filled with damning secrets, Elle's determined that this guilty pleasure remains buried in her deepest fantasies.


Because she couldn't possibly indulge with the Theo Kershaw. Or make a mistake that draws attention to her under-the-radar life. And she especially couldn't be a mom to a pro-athlete's baby ... could she?


In this standalone sports romance set in the Chicago Rebels world, a new generation of players take to the ice and learn that all's fair in love and hockey.

Red is the color of blood, sacrifice, danger, and courage. It’s also associated with heat, passion, and sexuality. When two people meet unexpectedly with an inexplicable attraction that defies common understanding...it can be called RED SIN.

 

Julia and Van found one another in a shaken snow globe. Stranded in a blizzard, they embraced being two individuals with no last names. The plan was to walk away from each other with no regrets—until that plan changed.

 

Julia’s life was delivered a staggering blow the day she discovered her fiancé’s infidelity. The night she met a handsome stranger, one who showed her the possibility of a life filled with more than the fulfillment of expectations, she took a chance.

 

When it comes to business, Donovan Sherman is a wolf—a bloodthirsty carnivore who leaves wounded prey and victims in his wake. He learned from the best, his onetime nemesis and now-mentor, Lennox Demetri, who showed him that opportunities are only ripe for those willing to risk it all, a lesson Donovan took to heart.

 

With Julia McGrath, Donovan must decide if this beautiful woman who showed him the meaning of red sin will fall victim as his prey or if after experiencing the unbridled passion, there is more that he wants.

 

From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a brand-new age-gap, family saga, chance meeting, contemporary romantic-suspense novel in the world of high finance, where success is sweet and revenge is sweeter.

*RED SIN is a full-length novel and book one of the new SIN SERIES.

The Montgomery Ink saga from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan continues with a steamy new series.

Years ago, Annabelle Montgomery married not for love but for a promise of hope. When she lost him weeks later, she told herself she never needed those sentiments again. Only when she discovers years later that her new neighbor is her late husband’s brother, Annabelle finds she can’t quite shake the emotions she’s long since buried.

Jacob Queen vowed he’d never set eyes on Annabelle again. When they’re forced into each other’s lives once more, they realize that no matter how far they run, no distance can keep them apart forever. More than ghosts lay between them, and when they finally give in to temptation, walking away whole may no longer be an option.

Excerpt:


“Alpha Devel. We’ve found an omega,” the Alpha heard one of his betas, Rafael, say.


“Where?”


“He crossed our borders this morning. We followed him to check if he was alone.”


“And?”


“It looks like he’s been on the road for a while. He stinks that way too. But there was no one else with him.”


“Bring him to me.”


“Yes, Alpha.”


A few minutes later, the Alpha heard the commotion as several enforcers pulled a scruffy looking figure toward him. The stench was terrible. The smell alone would have made it apparent someone was trespassing on their lands.


“Who are you?” Devel asked as he looked at the newcomer.


“Charlie.” The smaller man said.


“Where are you from?”


The man just shook his head, refusing to answer. Despite the stench, it was obvious he was an omega. He could smell the faint scent of an adult omega. Someone too vital to any pack to lose. This one must have run away from his masters. Still, the old masters’ loss was their gain. They needed an omega to keep all the alphas calm. There had been more fighting than usual among them.


“How old are you?” Devel asked, trying to find the answer by looking at the smaller man.


Again the prisoner refused to answer.


“It won’t help your cause by refusing to give me the information I need. But never mind. We’ll uncover it sooner or later.” The Alpha turned to his beta. “Raphael. Make sure this one gets a proper wash. Dunk him in the river if needed.”


“Yes, Alpha,” Rafael said and nodded.


“But…” the omega objected.


“Yes?” The Alpha asked.


“Nothing,” the younger man said quickly and shook his head.


“Make sure he survives and have the doctor check on him. We need an omega.”


The omega looked at him in terror.


“Welcome to the Blackclaw Pack,” the Alpha said and grinned at him.

"Love the writing, characters and story." --Kevin Anderson, author of the Dune novels about the Icefire story on which this fantasy series is based.

Deep under the City of Glass in the frozen southern land, an age-old machine called the Heart of the City radiates a power which locals call icefire. Most citizens are immune to it, but a few, always born with physical disabilities, can bend it to their will. For fifty years, the ruling Eagle Knights, who fly on the back of giant birds, have killed these Imperfects, fearing the return of the old royal family, who used icefire to cut out people's hearts, turning them into ghostly servitors. 
The old king's grandson Tandor only sees the good things icefire brought: power and technology now forgotten while the people of the south live in dire poverty. He's had enough of seeing his fellow kinsfolk slaughtered by ignorant Knights, of Imperfect babies being abandoned on the ice floes to be eaten by wild animals. His grandfather's diary tells him how to increase the beat of the Heart the first step to making the land glorious once more. Arrogant as he is, he sets the machine in motion. All he needs is an army of Imperfect servitors to control the resulting power.
Isandor is Imperfect, an ex-Knight apprentice, betrayed by his best friend and running for his life. 
The queen Jevaithi is Imperfect, living like a prisoner amidst leering Knights, surviving only because the common people would rebel if their beloved queen were harmed. 
Both are young and desperate and should be grateful that Tandor wants to rescue them from their hopeless situations. Or so he thinks. The youngsters, however, have no inclination to become heartless ghosts, but while they defy Tandor, the Heart beats, and he alone cannot control its power.

For people who like their fantasy dark and gritty. Think Joe Abercrombie, Karen Miller, Robin Hobb, George R.R. Martin.

Discover how seeds travel from place to place. Our narrator excitedly tells us how she saw a pear fall from a tree in the meadow and how a cow came along and ate it. Then the seed began a journey.  Where would the seed end up?  Would it grow into a big tree with pears of its own?

Using the pear and cow example we can stimulate more questions about seed dispersal and, like all the books in MUMMY NATURE series, Travelling Seeds can be used as a jumping off point for discussion of other topics such as seed germination, plant parts or how plants animals and people interact in nature.  On the last page we can see more examples of ways that seeds can be spread.

What we can learn:
  How seeds of fruit can be spread when eaten by animals or people
  Other ways that seeds can be spread: by wind, by water, by sticking to travelling creatures
  Simple ideas about germination
  The cycle of: seed > plant > flower > fruit > seed  
  A cow stomach has 4 parts
  new words:  Germination, sprout, roots, seedling
