Karma: A Silke Butters Novel
by Cynthia Vespia
A mask, a makeup brush, and amazing powers. It’s all in a days work for supermodel turned superhero, Karma.
Silke Butters lived within the glitz and glamour of the modeling world, until the day that world was turned upside down. Suddenly embodied with superpowers, she finds herself thrust into a world of heroes and villains, each enhanced with powers of their own. As Silke’s powers begin to grow she finds herself caught in the middle of a tug-of-war between both a subdivision of the U.S. government known as Shadow Company, and a ruthless terrorist organization known as The Sin Squad. Both entities want the “enhanced” for their respective teams with Silke as the main prize. To disguise her famous face, and protect those that she loves, Silke invents an alter ego. Karma is born of necessity to decide the fate of those who are ill-intentioned and empower others with hope. With the help of her former flame Joe Riggs, and her computer hacker friend Maki, Silke develops a heroes call-to-action to battle the dark force that threatens to annihilate humanity. Karma, the 1st in a 5 part series, blends the over-the-top punch of popular comic book stories, with the literary nuance of an urban fantasy novel. A genre-blending roller coaster ride, Karma will delight both superhero fans and fantasy readers alike.

When Maxine’s not working as a disability carer, she’s at an AFL game. The sport she has grown up loving. One night after a game, she meets one of AFL’s most eligible bachelors—captain of the Blues. The tall, dark haired, grey eyed god is the sort of man she would usually stay far away from. But when he leads her out on the dance floor, she finds that’s the one thing she can’t do.
He’s funny and charming. A dangerous mix. A mix Maxine can’t risk her heart on. After a night of passion unlike any she has ever known, Maxine runs. She hopes she can put it all behind her as a one-time event, but fate has other ideas in store. No matter how much you try you can’t run from some things.
Mark has spent his whole life trying to be the best he can be and live up to his father’s expectations. Now he’s finally at the top of his game; if only his team could just win then maybe his father would be proud. But with power and leadership comes other things: groupies—those fake, power and money hungry women who would do anything to get their claws in a top player like himself.
When he was younger he was happy to take what they so willingly gave but now he’s over it all. He wants something real. Like he feels for Maxine. One glance at the woman has his body burning up. And now he’s found her, he plans on keeping her. Well, that was ‘til she slipped out of his apartment as he slept.
With only a first name to go on, Mark holds little hope of ever seeing the beautiful Maxine again. But maybe, just maybe, fate might help a man out.
Finding her might be the easy part but keeping her may just be harder than marking the ball.

Mark to her Heart is a good 5* read.
The story is set around an AFL club in Victoria and Mark is the worshipped Captain. Worshipped by everyone but his father. He plays the game only for his dad. He’s tired of the Groupies, the Hanger Ons, the proverbial Pains in the Asses.
Maxine is a woman who cares for the disabled and loves her AFL and beloved Bulldogs. She’s a long way from being a Groupie and doesn’t set out to get herself noticed. But, noticed she is and Mark isn’t about to give up on the girl who tries hard to do a runner out of his life.
I know Ashlea, she is passionate about her football and the Bulldogs. It is very obvious this book has been written with both passion and knowledge. Loved it.

Join the Alexa Series 1 Year Anniversary celebration on Feb 11th
Alexa Morgan lost her mother when she was two. At eighteen, her father and stepmother died when a devastating earthquake hit the Bay Area. Only one person has remained a constant in her life: Devin.
Devin has been Alexa’s best friend since childhood. The two are inseparable—or they were until Devin declared his love for her at sixteen. When Alexa can offer him only friendship in return, Devin retreats, brokenhearted.
Alexa, on the other hand, longs for Ethan, the boy next door. Four years older than her, and with an ever-changing roster of girlfriends, Ethan is everything Devin isn’t: wild, sensual, and unpredictable.
In the aftermath of the deadly earthquake, Ethan makes his move on Alexa, who reciprocates in a confused whirl of grief and desire. When Ethan leaves town the next day, Devin comes back into Alexa’s life, offering support and expecting nothing in return.
Alexa begins to see the advantages of Devin’s quiet, stable love. Can she get past the friendship hang-up while trying to forget bad boy Ethan? It’s a choice that changes her life forever.
After her parents died during her senior year of high school, Alexa Morgan is completely alone in the world—except for her best-friend-turned-boyfriend Devin, identical twins Becca and Jessa, and Sebastian, a mysterious associate of her father’s.
Upon graduation, Alexa wants nothing more than to move on with her life, go to college, and forget all the hard and hurtful things from her tragic past. But when her first love, Ethan, shows up on her doorstep—the night before she’s supposed to meet Devin in Miami—it kicks off a whirlwind of events that threatens the good and stable things she’s worked so hard to achieve.
Ethan and Alexa shared one night of passion before he disappeared, leaving her bewildered and confused. But now he’s back, declaring that he loves her and that the only reason he left was to protect her from his malicious stepmother, Olivia.
In her heart, Alexa knows she loves Devin, but her attraction to Ethan is so strong she can’t help but be drawn in by their shared chemistry. Meanwhile, the threat of Olivia lurks around the edges, casting a menacing shadow over everything and everyone Alexa loves.

All I Want Is Him by HJ Harley
#SALE from November 24th – December 1st for #99cents on #Amazon☟
From the moment London met Pratt three years ago, she saw nothing but a beer drinking hockey player and refused to give him the time of day. That’s all changing as she sees a side to him she’s never seen before.
All she wants is…him to go
All she wants is…him to stay
All she wants is…him
“Sure, but we’ll have to go right now.”
“Okay. Just let me bring this stuff upstairs and use the bathroom.” I gave her a quick kiss on the cheek, and ran up to my room with my bags.
When I got back downstairs Trent told me Mom was in the car waiting for me. As I approached the car, the only thing I could see was the red hat in the window.
“Mother effer,” I shouted. As I got closer I could see his big-toothed, aggravating smile, and my mom was laughing too.
“Eighty-Six.” I opened the door and whined while I tugged unsuccessfully on his jacket. The big fathead didn’t even budge.
I let out a frustrated ‘errrrrrggggggg’ and slammed the door while my mom and Eighty-Six had a good laugh at my expense.
“Oh, London, be courteous. He wouldn’t be very comfortable back there. It’s not roomy like Trent’s truck,” she said in Pratt’s defense.
“Oh my God, what is wrong with you people? You call yourself family? Bunch of traitors.” I plopped in the back seat, and slammed my own door to make my point.
“Oh damn, I forgot my wallet. I’ll be right back,” Mom said, halfway out of the car already.
While she was gone, we sat in silence. I liked it that way. I was still aggravated at that massive melon-head in the front seat.
Next thing I saw was Tuna bolting out the front door and running straight for the woods. I jumped out to grab him before he got too far off looking for my brother or dad. When I bent over to pet him, I heard a whistle from behind me.
“Dear sweet Jesus on a Huffy, London. I like those jeans on you,” Pratt said.
“Way to woo a woman, Eighty-Six,” I responded.
“You know what else I like on you, London?” he asked with slightly puckered lips and a head nod.
“Really? Let me guess…‘You’. That’s what else you like on me,” I scoffed.
“Woooahhh, slow down tiger, I’m not that kind of guy. I was going to say I like all that sass you got on you, but hey, if you wanna go there, I’ll give it a try. Just be gentle.” He gave me a doe-eyed stare and batted his eyelashes.
I couldn’t help but laugh. “You are such an idiot.”
I sent Tuna back in the house and my mom held the door open for him, then we both got back in the car, ready to go.
“Wait. Stop,” Pratt said.
“What now?” I asked, annoyed.
“Does anyone need to use the potty before we leave?” he asked.
“I can’t. Just stop talking. You’re like this weird man-child.” I pulled my iPod out and put my ear buds in, with a cheeky smile on my face.
He just turned around and gave me that irritating grin. But this time, I noticed he had a dimple on one side, and his eyes were gray like the sky. They contrasted with his black shaggy hair that had a bit of a curl at the ends.
