DEADLY BEAUTIES

By C.M. OWENS

Book Blurb:

The deadliest things in this world are usually the most beautiful… seconds before they attack.

 Alyssa Coldwell decides to put her destiny as an immortal witch to the side, so she can take the chance to live like a normal girl amongst regular humans before she too is part of the fey world. She wants a break from magic and all the dangerous drama that comes with it, but life doesn't always let you do as you please. 

Magic is supposed to be simple - you're either light or dark. But Alyssa is brutally awakened when she learns that life isn't always so simple. There are gray areas, and there is more to being light than simply saying you are. 

But magic isn't her only problem, humans have problems as well. When she meets Kane Ice, she finds herself in a situation she's never been before. She's been sheltered by her overly protective mother, so being with a guy hasn't ever been an easy task. Kane makes it impossible not to try... while she can. Though she knows she'll have to leave him once her body turns immortal, she can't help but fall for him. 

What's the problem with a witch loving a human? So, so many things. Her world is too dangerous, and her attempt to take a break from it fails miserably when her mother is taken captive. With danger always around her, she knows Kane will never be safe. But it's too hard to let him go. 

Kane's not so fragile though, and he refuses to lose the only girl he's ever really cared for. Secrets are a part of Alyssa's life, but she's not the only one with a locked vault full of unspoken truths. When the secrets come out, Alyssa loses all her faith, her will, and her hope.

 

Warning: This is book one of a four book series.

TUESDAY'S CHILD

By DALE MAYER

What she doesn't want...is exactly what he needs.

Shunned and ridiculed all her life for something she can't control, Samantha Blair hides her psychic abilities and lives on the fringes of society. Against her will, however, she's tapped into a killer--or rather, his victims. Each woman's murder, blow-by-blow, ravages her mind until their death releases her back to her body. Sam knows she must go to the authorities, but will the rugged, no-nonsense detective in charge of tracking down the killer believe her? 

Detective Brandt Sutherland only trusts hard evidence, yet Sam's visions offer clues he needs to catch a killer. The more he learns about her incredible abilities, however, the clearer it becomes that Sam's visions have put her in the killer's line of fire. Now Brandt must save her from something he cannot see or understand...and risk losing his heart in the process. 

 As danger and desire collide, passion raises the stakes in a game Sam and Brandt don't dare lose.

ETERNAL VOWS

 

By CHRISSY PEEBLES

 

(Book 1 in The Ruby Ring Saga)

This is a time travel, fantasy, paranormal romance adventure.

Never marry a stranger...even if he is a drop-dead gorgeous immortal king. 

Never pretend to be a princess. 

And most importantly...never slip on an ancient wedding ring you know nothing about. 

Book Blurb:


Sarah Larker returns to a cave where her sister disappeared ten years earlier. She walks through a portal and is mistaken for a runaway princess on the run by a dangerous immortal king in medieval times. Her plan is bold as well as daring—become this princess, wed the king, and slip on an ancient wedding ring that will unlock the portal back home. Then find her sister and run as fast as she can out of Dodge. But taking on the identity of Princess Gloria comes along with dangerous consequences; and slipping on the ruby ring comes with an even higher price.

SEVENTH MARK

By W.J. MAY

Like most teenagers, Rouge is trying to figure out who she is and what she wants to be. With little knowledge about her past, she has questions but has never tried to find the answers. Everything changes when she befriends a strangely intoxicating family. Siblings Grace and Michael, appear to have secrets which seem connected to Rouge. Her hunch is confirmed when a horrible incident occurs at an outdoor party. Rouge may be the only one who can find the answer.

An ancient journal, a Sioghra necklace and a special mark force life-altering decisions for a girl who grew up unprepared to fight for her life or others.

All secrets have a cost and Rouge’s determination to find the truth can only lead to trouble…or something even more sinister.

By W.J. MAY

Radium Halos

Everyone needs to be a hero at one point in their life. 

The small town of Elliot Lake will never be the same again.

Caught in a sudden thunderstorm, Zoe, a high school senior from Elliot Lake, and five of her friends take shelter in an abandoned uranium mine. Over the next few days, Zoe’s hearing sharpens drastically, beyond what any normal human being can detect. She tells her friends, only to learn that four others have an increased sense as well. Only Kieran, the new boy from Scotland, isn’t affected.

Fashioning themselves into superheroes, the group tries to stop the strange occurrences happening in their little town. Muggings, break-ins, disappearances, and murder begin to hit too close to home. It leads the team to think someone knows about their secret – someone who wants them all dead.

An incredulous group of heroes. A traitor in the midst. Some dreams are written in blood.

 Daughter of Aphrodite

 

By C.M. OWENS

Book Blurb:

 Falling in love is impossible when you’re unaware of a curse.  Crippling insecurities fester and take control when you’ve only ever tasted the bitter sting of betrayal.  And trusting is impossible, especially when the man you love has secrets he won’t share.  But what happens when you have even bigger secrets you didn’t know existed?

 After having her heart shattered too many times, Adisia Titan gives up on men… or so she thinks.  Her resolve wavers, falters, and then dissolves when Devin Cole appears in her life.

 He’s rich, sexy, and… persistent.  Every alarm she has goes off, but she can’t tear herself away from the man who refuses to let her go.  The problem?  He has secrets, and in her experience, secrets lead to a broken heart.  How do you learn to trust when you’ve only ever been proven a fool for doing such?

 Devin’s secrets finally emerge, but Adisia can’t fathom the impossible.  All hell breaks loose when she learns she has secrets of her own – secrets that will forever change the life she never knew she loved.

They were forgotten, written off as myths, and dismissed as the past ramblings of imaginative minds, but the Greek immortals still exist, and they live among us, hiding in plain sight.

Warning: This is book one of a trilogy
