CHANNEL 20 SOMETHING: CHANNEL 20 SOMETHING SERIES BOOK 1

 What happens when the hot sports anchor you've been fantasizing about comes walking through the door in full, living color and larger than life?

The first time I laid eyes on Aric Serrano, he wasn’t even in the room with me. Just his ridiculously gorgeous image on a TV monitor in my news director’s office. Before I could stop myself, I’d blurted the two stupidest words possible—“Hire him.” 

Unfortunately, she did. 

I had a pretty good thing going before he arrived. My own apartment, my family close by, and a set of good friends at the small market TV station where I worked in my first reporting job. I was safe. Just the way I like it.

Aric is definitely not safe.

He’s six-feet-four-inches of missing-Hemsworth-brother-hotness and plans to stay in small-market-Southern-Hell just long enough to grab a cup of coffee and put together a kick-ass “escape tape”. He’ll serve his one-year contract, then he’s taking off for a higher rung on the TV sports ladder—alone. Just way he likes it.

But first… he wants to have a little fun while he’s here—with me. Problem is, he’s not the first sexual Heisman candidate I’ve encountered. And the last time I stepped out of my comfort zone and took a chance on a sexy, gorgeous player, things didn’t go so well. Disastrously, in fact. 

I would be so much more comfortable if I could simply ignore Aric. But that’s impossible when I’m forced to work so closely with him on the weekend newscast. And now the chemistry between us is growing even faster than the ratings, and what happens behind the cameras is the real news.

REVIEWS:

 

The story has a great pace, it kept me reading and not wanting to put the book down (I read this in 2 sittings). There was just the right amount of ups and downs, not too much drama but enough to keep things interesting… I really enjoyed Channel 20Something and definitely will be looking to read the other books in the series. If this one is anything to go by, I can see it being uber popular with the 20 something market and those who enjoy a good New Adult romance with some humour and fun to it!” Bewitched Books

“I loved this book because it was so not what I was expecting! I expected some light, cute, fluffy, somewhat predictable New Adult book. We get the cute and fluffy part alright (also lots of sexual tension and hot scenes) BUT IT WASN'T PREDICTABLE! Not at all, it's actually one of the best New Adult books I've read plot wise. It's awesome in all the ways that make this genre awesome and more because you can never get bored and then when you think the characters have life all figured out BOOM! There's another plot twist or problem I didn't see coming and I loved that! Long story short, I NEED MORE OF AMY PATRICK!” Maf’s Crazy Book Life

“The story was fast paced, fun and flirty… and enjoyable!” A British Bookworm’s Blog

Book 3
Give in to the Glamour as the saga continues...

Ryann is torn between two kings… two brothers.

Lad, the king of the Light Court, is her first love. Nox, the new king of the Dark Court, came through when she needed him most and won her heart.

But Lad has revealed a secret to Ryann that devastates her and tears at her loyalties. And though Nox and Lad are fierce rivals for the girl they both love, an even bigger problem threatens them all.

The unsuspecting human population of the world hangs in the balance of an approaching war between Dark and Light. Powerful fan pods have transformed the face of the country. It’s abnormal NOT to be in one now. The Dark Council’s plan is almost accomplished, and they are nearly ready to reveal themselves and take back rulership of the world, as it was in the old days, before the history books were written.

Ryann can’t believe the Nox she knows and loves would allow that to happen, though he is now deeply entrenched in the Dark Court and seems to be changing by the day. Is his love for Ryann strong enough to give him the strength to stand against his people and their plot?

Or should she side with Lad and the Light Court, who appear to have the welfare of humans in mind? He is fighting the looming danger hard as he can, fully involved now in the world of Elven politics he tried so hard to avoid.

And what can Ryann-- only a partial Fae-- personally do?

She will have to learn to balance her own Dark and Light sides-- and somehow make a the right choice between two tempting Fae guys-- or face the consequences of a wrong decision eternally and watch her family and the entire human world fall under the oppression of the Dark Court.

Book 2
Give in to the Glamour as the saga continues... 

17-year-old Ryann Carroll thought she knew who she was… a small-town Southern girl just trying to survive her parents’ messy divorce and find some peace for herself. She thought she knew what she wanted… a summer job, a car, a first date that didn’t suck, and NO complications from a serious relationship—any guy in her life would simply be icing on the cake. 


But now… she’s not only in love, her boyfriend Lad is a member of an ancient race that’s lived secretly among humans for thousands of years, mentioned only in flawed and fading folklore. Things could hardly get more complicated than that. 


More importantly, she’s learned the world’s top celebrities… those actors, musicians, athletes, and politicians who seem a little too beautiful and talented to be true… actually are. They’re not human, and they’re using their glamour and the increasing popularity of fan pods to control more and more humans. But why? 


With her best friend Emmy leaving soon to join the fan pod of a famous actor, Ryann has to find out the answer. And she can’t do it alone. But after a shocking murder, Lad can no longer fight his destiny or his duty, and Ryann’s not sure whether his top priority is their relationship or his people. 
In this second book of the Hidden Trilogy, true friendship will take Ryann from rural Mississippi to the glittering city of Los Angeles. And true love will take her to places she never expected to go…

Book 4
The Darkness is Coming...

 

Ryann and Lad are together and in love, but they are not yet bonded. Wedding plans are underway, but they cannot marry until the mourning period for his father, the murdered king, ends. Waiting is sweet torture and gets harder all the time.

Nox and Vancia are touring the world with his band The Hidden and enjoying their honeymoon. They’re also working to convince the holdout tribes in Europe, Asia, and Australia to disband their fan pods and sign the new peace treaty between the Dark and Light Courts. It’s the only way to ensure the safety of humans worldwide.

But unbeknownst to any of them, dark forces are still at work. There are some who don’t support the treaty—or their new king. And they’ll do anything necessary to restore Elven reign over humanity.

When an ambassador from the Dark Court arrives in Altum, Lad expects relations between the formerly antagonistic clans to improve. What he didn’t expect is her unique glamour—or her traveling companion.

And Ryann’s own glamour gift is warning her… if they can’t uncover the hidden truth in time, the much-anticipated royal wedding may never happen.

As the Hidden Saga continues, friendships will be formed and broken, the bonds of love tested, and beautiful and dangerous new glamours revealed.

Book 4
A member of the Dark Court, Vancia has spent her life among humans—together but separate, hiding in plain sight. Now Pappa says it’s time to put her glamour to use against the unsuspecting humans and, worse, agree to an arranged political marriage with a guy she’s never even met.

After the sudden death of her parents, Vancia felt lucky to have been taken in by family friend Davis Hart, who is not only generous to her, he’s a powerful Senate committee chairman.

Now, five years later, she’s settled into her new life, splitting her time between their homes in Washington, D.C., and Atlanta, Georgia, where she goes to school. She’d like to feel like a regular high school student, but there’s nothing regular about their world. Her busy adoptive father is always travelling, and he’s secretive, spending a great deal of time with a shadowy organization he calls The Council.

When he tells Vancia about a political marriage he arranged for her years ago, she reluctantly agrees. After all, she owes her “Pappa,” and he deserves her loyalty. Besides, she gets the distinct feeling that his request isn’t actually a choice. And there may be even more to her mysterious groom and their impending marriage than he’s letting on.

THE SWAY is a companion novella to The Hidden Saga, a Young Adult fantasy romance series that begins in the backwoods of rural Mississippi and ends up affecting the entire world.

WHAT REVIEWERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE SWAY:
“I could not put this book down. The story-line held me entranced in an elven world, hiding in plain sight among mortals, seeking domination while a greater mystery unfolded. I was flipping through the pages faster than ever in dire need to find out what happens next in the female protagonist's life and if she will ever find a back bone to defy her overly obstinate, adoptive father's plans for her life. The cliff hanger at the end drove me somewhat insane, but it is an exemplary novella for the YA audience that I HIGHLY recommend. On a side note, I am still overly desperate to learn the grand scheme of things behind the conspiracy theory. I will be reading the other books. I HAVE to read the other books.” Paranormal Trance Reviews
