Author: Bethany Bliss
Genre: Fantasy Romance
Release Date: June 25, 2022

Lazarith is out for blood and though Empress Marilla tries to soothe the rival countries’ antsy calls to war, Kayda suspects her efforts will be futile and prepares to march into a battle she has been trained for her entire life.
 
Kayda at first is excited by the approaching battles, welcoming the distraction from her barely processed grief after losing her lover just a short year ago. However, she soon learns just how little it would take to be stripped of the rest of her loved ones as the fatalities grow.
 
Vince knew from the very beginning how catastrophic a war could be and had tried to warn her of the consequences it could bring to her country and to herself. He is unwilling to lose her and she is thankful for one thing this war brought her: clarity.
 
It helped her realize just how unwilling she is to lose him too.

I started writing when I was maybe twelve. I’m severely dyslexic and my writing was about as good as my
reading: just awful. However, I enjoyed writing and the creative ideas were there, even if the grammar wasn’t. I kept at it until I was happy with my results and passed it off to friends and family who could help me proofread. I try not to focus so hard on the grammar at first, just let my ideas flow and see where they take me.

From brothel courtesan to trusted advisor, Cornelia has advanced farther than she ever imagined possible. Discovered as a maid who was willing to risk her life to help others, her status was changed to Lady when Marilla reclaimed the castle. She now serves the empress as her loyal medic and advisor. When Empress Marilla receives word of a possible epidemic killing citizens in the farthest reaches of the empire, she decides to send Cornelia out to investigate, but not without Blythe to guard her. Fascinated by Cornelia’s selflessness and compassion for those who think so little of her, he has been drawn to the advisor since she first treated his wounds long ago. His attraction to the mahogany skinned beauty goes deeper than the surface, though Cornelia is wary of his affections and intentions. Many men have wanted her, used her, and she expects Blythe to be no different. The longer they travel together however, the more they realize that everything is not how it appears.

Glancing over my shoulder once and waiting a few seconds to ensure no one was coming, I let curiosity get the best of me. I slipped the brown tie off so I wouldn’t have to retie it and undid the paper wrapping around the bottle.

 

There was a clear liquid inside the bottle. I set it down on the dresser next to me and looked at the short note.

 

In case it all goes sideways…

 

Next to the short, ominous sentence was a symbol that froze my blood.

 

The sentence ended with a dark, shaded-in skull and crossbones.

 

The universal sign for poison.

RETOLD

Author: M.C. Frank
Release Date: 31 March 2022
025-6x9-2-book-boxset-mockup-template-COVERVAULT 4 bks

Blurb:

Unwanted. Three boys grew up in an orphanage, abandoned and despised by those who should have taken care of them. They were starved, hit, and abandoned for years.

But they are men now. Gentlemen, so to speak. A little broken, a little damaged and a little destroyed by life, but they hide it behind toughness, money, amazingly folded cravats and, in some cases, illegal activities. Their main strength is each other: they are best friends, partners in crime, a found family.

And then comes the one battle that every gentleman, no matter how brooding, haughty or handsome, must face alone. These are the stories of how they each fight, and lose, the battle against love.

Hooked: Wendy and Lord Darlington

When Wendy Hooke was a little girl, she saved a boy from starvation. The boy, Peter, taught her how to fly. Now the boy is a man, a gorgeous man, and he has forgotten all about her. She watches him take London’s ballrooms by storm, pursued by every designing mama, but Peter doesn’t even glance at her. Because it’s not ‘Peter’ now, it’s Lord Darlington.

Peter hasn’t forgotten the girl who saved his life, but his secrets hold him back. The webs of his secret gang that fights crime on the streets of London are closing in on the greatest criminal of all time, the Viscount Hooke. And Wendy…well, she is his daughter.

Caged: Zella and Pirate Charmont

Zella isn’t crazy. She knows that, but no one else does. And, she has to admit, maybe she does look crazy, locked up here in the madhouse, with hair so long and wild it can practically become a rope.

And it does. One day, she lets her hair down from the tiny window, and someone rudely grabs it like a rope. Like a rope thrown to a drowning man.

“I’m not crazy, you know,” she tells the rugged-looking young man who climbs up, panting as if he is running for his life.

“Sweetheart,” he replies, “I don’t care. If they catch me, I’ll get hanged.”

“Oh. Why?”

“Because, m’ dear. I’m a pirate.”

Seduced: Poppy and Lord Hades

Lord Hades owns a gaming hell that sprawls underneath the city of London like the underworld. It is no secret: the Hell Club is notorious all over Europe. Peers and millionaires travel from Vienna and Paris to enjoy the Turkish baths or play cards with the great political leaders of other countries.

Money and power exchange hands nightly underneath the sparkling ballrooms and gentlemen’s clubs, and no one knows. Until Hades discovers a boy sent to spy on him. But the boy is not a boy.

And she will pay.

Retold includes three dark and sparkling romantic stories inspired by myths, folklore and fairytales, as well as by the glittering world and the roguish gentlemen of Regency London.

They might look like quick, fun reads, but don’t be fooled: these stories are going to break your heart into a million pieces.

About M.C. FRANK

M.C. Frank’s bio:
Welcome to the engrossing world of M.C. FRANK’s books, where characters aren’t going to have an easy time of it: They will find themselves in icy-cold dystopian worlds where kissing is forbidden (among other things), or in green forests ruled by evil Sheriffs. If they’re in Jane Austen’s England, they have to be running away from a traumatic childhood, or if they are in our contemporary world, they’re scared they’ll die before they have finished high school. That sort of thing.

Don’t worry, though, she knows we all need a little hope and joy in our lives, so there’s a good dose of those as well in everything she writes.

M.C. Frank (writer, reader, designer, physicist and teacher, to name a few) has been living in a world of stories ever since she can remember (that’s before she knew how to write). She started writing them down when she could no longer stand the characters in her head screaming at her to give them life, and while those first scribblings weren’t exactly good (nor were they books, although she insisted on calling them that), they were enough for her to discover her passion in life.

She got her university degree in physics a few years ago (yes, she’s like Sheldon, only a bit crazier!) and is now free to pursue her love of reading and writing, as well her free-lance job as editor-in-chief. She lives with her ‘dude’ in a home filled with candles, laptops and notebooks, where she rearranges her overflowing bookshelves every time she feels stressed.

Which is often, since (as you might have noticed) she doesn’t pick the easiest subjects for her novels.
