Elara:

As an infant, I was abandoned on the steps of a church.

My childhood was spent in an abusive foster home.

At nineteen, I killed someone.

 

Not long after, three men in black cloaks kidnap me and whisk me through a magical portal to a world I never knew existed. A world they say is my home. But the enchanting realm of Celestria is in turmoil. A dark enemy has infiltrated the land and is attempting to seize control. The last hope of the people of Celestria is locating Changelings in the mortal world… like me.

 

Yet an assessment of my magic leads to a shocking revelation. Someone used a powerful spell to suppress my powers. But who? And why?

 

Prince Kage Dargan:

The moment I see her, my world pauses.

Though we’ve never met, the girl is familiar to me.

Since I was a boy… she has visited me in my dreams.

 

Even so, I can’t let my guard down around her. The last Changeling I trusted tried to kill me. Besides, my attraction to her is a temptation I can’t risk. My parents arranged my upcoming marriage years ago and breaking that pact could have steep consequences.

 

Still, I have to wonder why the girl from my dreams has finally appeared. Is it fate? Or something far more sinister?

Cameo was born in San Francisco, raised in Maui, Hawaii, and now resides with her husband in Las Vegas. She is a dreamer and caffeine addict who loves to laugh and loves to read to escape reality.

 

One of her greatest satisfactions is creating fantasy worlds filled with adventure and romance. It is the love and incredible support of her family and fans that keeps her going. One day she hopes to uncover a magic wardrobe and ride away on a unicorn. Until then . . . she’ll keep writing!

Blurb:

— Archie —

I was born into an easy life, and I like it that way.

Easy money.

Easy sex.

Easy … every-damn-thing.

But that luxury came with a price, and it’s almost time to pay it.

It’s senior year, my last one of freedom before I inherit the family empire and watch my dad gleefully sail into retirement on the tails of his fifth—sixth? —divorce from my mother.

I’m the golden boy of Arlean University, the first-line running back with so many touchdowns they call me Bring-It-Home Blakely. Men want to be me. Women want to be beneath me.

I do what I want. When I want. To whomever I want.

I am revered. Adored. Utterly untouchable.

Or so I thought.

A red-headed transfer student with a know-it-all complex and Satan’s temper threatens to ruin my birthright.

She saw something she shouldn’t have and stuck her nose where it didn’t belong.

Then, she smiled at me when my father introduced her as his fiancé.

 

Game on, future Mrs. Blakely.

 

— Layne —

I have fought for everything I’ve ever had.

Food, shelter, safety, life.

Twenty-one years ago, I was born in the wrong place at the wrong time to the wrong woman.

I learned to survive on my own and to do whatever it takes—beg, borrow, and steal—to stay alive.

Every night for as long as I can remember, I have dreamed of vengeance, and no one, especially the god of my new college, will stand in my way.

I don’t believe in gods anyway.

I don’t believe in forgiveness either.

I believe in blood for blood and pain for pain, and I will make it rain down from my hands in a thunderstorm.

Available on Kindle Unlimited


Blurb:

Five years ago, Ginger Carlyle turned down a marriage proposal that everyone, including Jacob Noble, thought she would agree to.

 

Five years ago, Jacob Noble took a job in a northern California mining town that he hoped would help him to forget the love he’d left behind in Ashton. But there was no way he could forget Ginger, or his own broken heart.

 

Back in Ashton, Ginger has been beset by tragedy after tragedy. After her father’s death, she is the only one who can care for her ailing mother and manage the family house and land. But hard work isn’t enough when the bank comes looking for the mortgage payments. Unable to tell her mother the truth about their dire financial circumstances, Ginger will have to work even harder to make sure that their Thanksgiving holiday is as joyful as it always was when her father was alive.

 

However, after Ginger is accused of stealing from her new employer, her whole world is turned upside down. She’s dragged to the sheriff’s office where she’s shocked to discover the new deputy is none other than the very man whose proposal, she turned down all those years ago.

 

As the past is re-visited and secrets come to light, is there hope that justice will be Ginger’s in time for Thanksgiving?

Title: Twisted Little Lies
Series: Lake State University #8
Author: Rachael Brownell
Genre: New Adult College Romance, Second Chance Romance
Release Date: November 10, 2022
 
 
 

 
She owns my heart. My goal is to one day own hers again.
I want her.
What she doesn’t want is me. She made that perfectly clear the summer after high school when she broke up with me. That hasn’t stopped her from crawling in my bed on more than one occasion though.
Not that anyone knows about us, or our past.
We’ve kept that secret under lock and key for years. But I’m getting sick and tired of lying to my friends. I’m not ashamed of my love for her.
Yes, I love her.
I always have. And I know she loves me too. She’s just afraid to admit it.
When we get caught in a compromising position though, all the lies she’s been telling start to crumble around her. And if there’s one thing she hates more than me at the moment, it’s being vulnerable.
That doesn’t stop me from taking advantage of her weakened state. Of trying to work my way back into her heart. Of reminding her why we should be together. But the more she lets me in, the more her lies are starting to get twisted.
The ones she’s telling others but mostly the ones she’s been telling herself.
If I want my second chance, I’m going to have to find a way to break through the fortress she’s erected around her heart.
I know she’s the one for me. She has been since we were teenagers.
My first love. My last. My only.
 
 

Kane was my everything.

He still is.

My heart belongs to him. He’s embedded in my soul.

And my body… It’s only ever been his.

Which is how we ended up in the back of the limo tonight, tearing at each other’s clothes. Him throwing his sunglasses off so I could look into his eyes as I lowered myself onto him. His hands gripping my hips so tight I know there will be bruises tomorrow.

It took about half a second to remember how great we were together. How great we could still be, if only I’d tell him the truth.

We do this dance every few months.

Collide with hurricane force. Fuck each other’s brains out. Get our fix and then go back to pretending we don’t have a past together. That we’re nothing more than acquaintances passing in the night.

We’ve always been careful to not get caught.

But tonight, I couldn’t resist.

I knew he was staring at me on the ride to the gala. I could feel his eyes on me from across the room as I spoke to my new boss, Emerson Dixon, and her husband, Ryder. And then he made it a point to move closer. To slowly encroach on my position.

My heart was pounding in my chest. My skin tingled from his close proximity. My breathing shallow and labored as I tried to ignore the effect he had on me.

But Kane knows me too well. All it took was one text, and I was his.

ME: Limo. Ten minutes.

It wasn’t a question. It was a proposal. He walked away, and I followed a few minutes later at a safe distance.

What I never expected was for Scarlet to show up seconds after I orgasmed. Or for Kane to act as if it wasn’t a big deal.

Title: Loving Rush
Author: Layla Jones
Genre: New Adult Romance/Love at First Sight Romance
Release Date: September 30, 2022
Cover Design: Angela Haddon
What would you do for love? Lux will do almost anything, including lie to the handsome stranger she meets at a hospital vending machine.
After another round of bad news regarding her health, she is figuratively and literally sick of doctor’s appointments, bland food, and no social life. So, it feels like fate when she runs into Rush.
Rush is kind and so f*cking hot. With him, the connection is instantaneous, and she wants to experience all he’s offering. That includes eating all the food, going to the ocean on the back of Rush’s motorcycle, dating, kissing, and maybe even falling in love.
Because she doesn’t know how much longer she has but what she does know is she wants to spend every second with him.
When Rush finds out the truth, will he forgive her secrets, or will it even matter in the end?

“I really loved how the characters in Loving Rush fit so well together and have a great chemistry with each other. How they meet is one of my favorites and how they have so much fun together. I love how as the story evolves and they do too. I love how they work together to solve a mystery and overcome the subsequent betrayal and how they find ways to overcome big challenges and obstacles along the way. I also like how the story shows that there are consequences for our choices that you can’t outrun no matter how good your intentions or how well meaning they may be but that doesn’t mean the end result won’t be ultimately great. I also love how much the characters care for each other like truly and how quickly they work as a team and trust each other so much. It’s definitely a bit spicy so if you like your stories on the hot side this is the book for you. Loving Rush is a great story with suspense, unexpected twists and turns and all kinds of adventures that create interesting results at times. This is one of those hard to put down books that I couldn’t stop turning pages to see what happens next!” ~ Debbie Davis

Title: Tempted: An ABCs of Love Novel
Author: Renee Harless
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Cover Designer: Indie Sage
Publication Date: August 18th, 2022
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

From USA Today bestselling author Renee Harless comes a forbidden, age-gap, love story with a sexy musician and a woman that knows what she wants.

 

There are many things in life I’d rather forget. But nothing tops walking in on my teenage crush and temporary neighbor in the great outdoors while he showered.

 

It wasn’t as if I did it on purpose, but he thought I had.

 

Asher Blake was the head of my favorite band and the most gorgeous man I’d ever laid eyes on. But to him, I was nothing more than his friend’s daughter.

 

Or maybe I was wrong.

 

I wasn’t exactly that awkward doting girl anymore. I was older and no longer off limits. We were two consenting adults. And no one would know what we did behind those cabin walls.

 

Once our time was up, we could go our separate ways.

 

Our lives were complicated enough and we didn’t need to add our age difference into the mix.

 

We threw caution to the wind and gave into temptation, never realizing that it was more than just our secrets that we needed to protect – it was our hearts too.

 

**Tempted is a complete stand-alone in the ABCs of Love series where each author delivers a brand-new story for you to rediscover your ABCs.

Renee Harless is a USA TODAY bestselling author with an affinity for wine and a passion for telling a good story.

 

Renee Harless, her husband, and children live in Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. She studied Communication, specifically Public Relations, at Radford University.

 

Growing up, Renee always found a way to pursue her creativity. It began by watching endless runs of White Christmas- yes even in the summer – and learning every word and dance from the movie. She could still sing “Sister Sister” if requested. In high school she joined the show choir and a community theatre group, The Troubadours. After marrying the man of her dreams and moving from her hometown she sought out a different artistic outlet – writing.

 

To say that Renee is a romance addict would be an understatement. When she isn’t chasing her kids around the house, working her day job, or writing, she jumps head first into a romance novel.
