Author: Liz Long
Genre: YA Super Heroes
Blurb:
This boxed set features the entire Heroes of Arcania trilogy.
Heroes of Arcania: SuperNova, Book 1
Sometimes the villain must create the hero.
The streets of Arcania are overrun with crime, deteriorating as a madman named Fortune makes himself at home. He shows no mercy, striking down anyone in his path – including Nova Benson’s little sister. Devastated, Nova vows to seek justice for her family, but aside from her freak strength and impenetrable skin, how is she supposed to stop a monster like Fortune?
Cole Warner wants to help people. Entrusted to keep his family’s secret, he’s also frustrated at having to hide his gift. He knows he could do more to help in the fight against Fortune. If he could convince his sister Penelope to join him, they might even have a chance at beating him. When Cole meets Nova, he realizes his whole world is about to change. And he’s going to welcome it with open arms.
Falling for each other wasn’t part of the plan.
Then again, neither was becoming a superhero.
Heroes of Arcania: Fortune’s Favor, Book 2
Not all villains can be defeated.
Nova will learn it takes more than sheer strength to be a superhero. Her world implodes when Fortune strikes back for all the trouble she’s caused. His dangerous games put everyone around her at risk, especially when he decides to turn Arcania against its precious Heroes. Nova wants to protect Arcania, but how does she save a city that doesn’t want her help?
Cole has no idea how to deal with his sister Penelope, especially now that she’s learned the truth about their family secret. Thanks to Fortune, she’s headed down a dark path, one with no return. Torn between helping Nova and protecting his sister, Cole will be forced to make a choice. Tensions rise as Cole and Nova discover war will come to Arcania if they don’t get Fortune off the streets…or preferably six feet under.
Nova and Cole might have each other, but will they lose everything else in their mission to save Arcania?
Heroes of Arcania: Unbreakable, Book 3
True heroes refuse to be broken.
Nova started the fight against Fortune for simple revenge, but now it’s turned into something much bigger. Arcania’s criminals are at each other’s throats, putting the city right in the middle of a warzone. She’ll have to work with a few unlikely allies to end Fortune’s games once and for all. Nova thought she understood what it meant to be a superhero, but will she have to lose herself to truly defeat Fortune?
Fortune has given Cole a choice, one with unbearable consequences. When Cole takes matters into his own hands to save his sister Penelope, he realizes too late he’s another pawn in Fortune’s games. Fortune will use Cole’s gift against his enemies…including Nova. Cole will have to become the hero he always wanted to be if he’s going to protect the love of his life.
Nova and Cole could finally save Arcania from Fortune’s deadly games, but are they willing to sacrifice each other?

Crazy Woman Creek

CRAZY WOMAN CREEK

Individual Book in the Craving Country Anthology

by Ryan Jo Summers

 

Genre: Western Romance

Crazy Woman Creek Blurb:

Texas rancher Dawson Lonigan is out hunting stray cattle when he finds a lone woman. Suffering from amnesia, she has no clue who she is, or where she came from. Dawson invites her to stay on the ranch to recuperate, where she is quickly smitten with his young daughter…and the handsome, kind-hearted rancher.

Over time, Dawson becomes quite attracted to “Faith”, as he calls her and hopes he can convince her to stay, even if she someday gets her memories back.

Hearing talk of some out-of-town men hanging about, Faith rushes to find them, certain they hold the key to unlocking who she is. Too late, she finds out the truth. Dawson found her once… can he find her again…in time?

Craving Country Anthology Blurb:

There’s something about a country boy that makes us hot for denim jeans and leather hats.

They’re mysterious, intriguing, confident…and demand our attention in everything they do. Then there’s the fierce loyalty you see in their eyes that makes you think of tangled sheets and sinful deeds.

There’s definitely something sexy about a cowboy…

So pull on those jeans, roll up your sleeves, and grab your boots.

Things are about to get dirty…

…in Craving Country.

“Is your door broken?”

He jumped at her soft question. Head jerking up, he realized he had not heard her because she was stocking-footed. She wore green plaid knickers and a blood red top. Hell’s bells, had he really picked that out? Mercy! She looked like someone’s granny fixing to go golfing. What a waste of a good piece of land. And what a waste of yardage of clothing on a beautiful woman. One of his old t-shirts would be better. What had he been thinking? Was everything he got her as hideous as this outfit? Well, he’d just proven the fact men can’t shop.

At least she was game about it and not complaining. Then he realized she was looking over his shoulder at the door.

“Naw, it’s not broken. It’s called a Dutch door. Haven’t you ever seen a split door?”

“Do I look Dutch to you?”

From the look in her eyes, he had a feeling she was talking about more than a door. Her silent agony slammed into him. What was it like to know absolutely nothing about yourself? He shoved the casserole into the oven and reached for her hands. He rubbed his thumbs over her wrists, studying her. “Naw. If I had to guess, I’d say…probably Italian.”

He guided her to the mirror in the parlor and sat her down facing it. Gently he traced her face, locking his eyes with hers in the mirror. His heart beat skipped faster.

“You have a heart-shaped face, rosebud lips, and your complexion is olive. Your cheekbones are high.” Slowly, he outlined each part with his finger as he spoke. “And I noticed the first food you went for was the most Italian-smelling one. You seemed to really enjoy it.”

She swallowed. “Have you known many Italian women?”

“Nope. You’re my first.” He cupped his fingers under her chin and tipped her face up. Leaning down, he kissed her, feeling her warm skin now apple scented from the bath and tasting mint from her toothpaste.

Easing her up, he brought her close, deepening the kiss. She slowly yielded to him, uncertain at first, but bolder as he held his patience. He liked she had to think about what she wanted to do. Fresh desire swept over him. His fingers gripped the worn fabric of her granny shirt, and he yearned to yank it off her but sensed that would be too much. There were too many unanswered questions at the moment. However, he was a patient man, and he knew she felt the sparks zapping between them as much as he did. He heard the low moan rumbling from her throat and saw how she closed her eyes and relaxed her face as yearning pulsed through her.

Ryan Jo Summers is a North Carolina writer who pens romances with a twist. They may contain any number of elements: Christian, humor, mystery, paranormal, sweet, shape-shifting, or time travel. Her dad is a songwriter and his aunt wrote poetry so writing must be in the family genes.

She makes her home in a century-old mountain cottage, with a menagerie of adopted pets. In her spare time, she likes to gather with family and friends, paint ceramics or canvas, potter in the yard, bird-watching, or read, play chess, Mahjongg or work word-find puzzles. She might take her dog and head deep into the forests and rivers near her home to plot the next big scene or story. Like her dad’s aunt, she writes poetry as a means to cope with life’s pains.

She collects lighthouses, shells, driftwood, and anything to remind her of the shore.

Eva has it all: a good relationship with her husband Charlie, two goofy kids, a solid career, and a comfortable house. But a series of misunderstandings threaten to disrupt her happy normality. Shaken out of their routine and escaping to the woods in an ever-escalating comedy of errors, Eva and Charlie must work together in mutual trust to protect their family from forces outside their control. In the isolation of a rustic cabin, facing increasingly real dangers, Eva and Charlie rediscover the passion that had been missing from their snug yet mundane existence, and learn to appreciate The Extraordinary Ordinary.

105 Reasons by Erin Grosfield

Zoe is living her best life. After inheriting her grandparents’ farmhouse in her tiny hometown, she builds a thriving wedding venue in the old barn. Every day greets her with tranquility and laughs with her faithful, larger-than-life Great Dane. She has everything she needs.

Wyatt loves his penthouse life in the city, his world travels and his money. But with all his success, he has to admit he finds himself lonely and unfulfilled.

When a chance encounter brings their worlds together, will they be able to choose between the lives they know and their unexpected, inescapable longing to be together?

Something Beige by Megan Nelson

Paige is used to going unnoticed. When you’re a little plain and a lot introverted it comes with the territory. Trying to stay optimistic and true to herself, Paige looks for someone who values the natural over the fake, who understands there’s more to a person than meets the eye.

Losing yet another guy to a superficial beauty is the last straw. If all men prefer flash to substance, then she’s done with them. Fostering unwanted cats helps her feel needed and appreciated even if it doesn’t fill every corner of her heart. With all her focus on animal rescue, Paige is unaware that love is closer than she thinks.

If Only by Mica Rossi

Grant Richardson wasn’t looking for love, and certainly not in the silly castle on an island that shouldn’t exist. He was, after all, a lawyer. He didn’t believe in fairytales or pixie dust. Maggie Chalvis had dreamed of love but never expected it. She lived alone, with only her father and his secretary for company, confined to the castle created once upon a time for her enchanting mother.

Two solitary souls traveling in singular orbits. One grand master orchestrating their meeting. And just a little bit of Valentine magic.

Amy Stearman is an avid reader and writer of stories, hailing from the Midwest. She lives in the liberal mecca of Kansas with her husband, young son, and ornery Sheltie.

Amy holds her bachelors degrees in Human Services and Victim Studies, and a Masters degree in Social Work. That might sound pretty cool, but she accidentally ended up in marketing.

When she’s not chasing her six year old or attempting DIY home improvement, she’s jotting down story ideas and dreaming big.

Elise Barker received her PhD in English and the Teaching of English in 2014 from Idaho State University where she continues to work as a part time adjunct instructor. Today she is working on the curriculum for an intensive hands-on Harry Potter class for kids ages 11-17. Elise has written in a variety of genres, both academic and creative, but her heart currently lies with studying the art of memoir.

Elise and her husband Chris Elston have two kids and her favorite thing to do is play with them outside, whether it’s hiking, biking, snowshoeing, swimming, canoeing, or going to natural hot springs. If she gets to the end of the day and hasn’t done something Instagram-worthy, she rouses herself up and creates a memory.

Erin Grosfield is an author and perpetual dreamer currently holding down the fort in the Midwest with her musically inclined husband and two young children–one of which is well-behaved. She took her degree in journalism and became a creative entrepreneur, running her own magazine and later producing an original Emmy-nominated home renovation Web series. These days she’s dreaming in novel form and seeing her characters in the grocery store, which she took as a sign to put ideas down on paper and become an author–because, perpetual dreamer.

It’s no exaggeration to say that Megan Nelson is always writing. By day, she puts her two English degrees to work as a technical writer, delivering logical and easy-to-read training materials on demand. At night, she puts logic to bed and lets her creative side out to play. She is especially fond of love stories, ghost stories, science fiction, or any combination thereof.

Megan lives in Kansas with her husband and two young sons. Completing the household is an exceedingly fluffy cat and a surprisingly hardy Betta fish.

Mica Rossi has been writing since she was in the second grade and barely able to form her letters properly. Her first book, Once in a Blue Moon, is a paranormal romance and was selected as a spearhead novel for Melange Books’ White Satin Romance line. Her second published work, Heart Songs, is a collection of short stories and poetry about the human heart and all its boundless emotions. Other works have been featured in several anthologies, and she’s furiously scribbling through various drafts of her second full-length novel, a contemporary romance set during the Christmas season.

Now working as a paralegal to pay the bills, Mica hopes to someday make writing her full-time career. Of her own stories, she says, “I love the juxtaposition of an urban setting against elements of magick or faerie, demons, ghosts or mythical creatures. There’s something that draws me to those pockets of our universe where the laws of physics can be ignored, or at least trifled with. If Only… is one of those stories.”

or the first time ever, get all three books of the Acceptance series in one complete boxset. Includes a free, exclusive novella HALF ACCEPTED.
Begin with Rite of Rejection which HEA USA Today called “A draw-you-in read…highly recommended for fans of dystopian and YA.”
RITE OF REJECTION… Straight-laced, sixteen-year-old Rebecca can’t wait for her Acceptance. A fancy ball, eligible bachelors, and her debut as an official member of society. Instead, the Machine rejects Rebecca. Labeled as a future criminal, she’s shipped off to a life sentence in a lawless penal colony.
A life behind barbed wire fences with the world’s most dangerous people terrifies Rebecca. She reluctantly joins a band of misfit teens in a risky escape plan, complete with an accidental fiancé she’s almost certain she can learn to love.

Her first love is Young Adult novels, because at seventeen the world is your oyster. Only oysters are slimy and more than a little salty; it’s accurate if not exactly motivational. We should come up with a better cliché.
Sarah divides her time between writing books that her husband won’t read and performing on stage at BE Theatre. Her goal in life is to never grow up.
