Title: A DOWRY OF SNAILS AND MUD
Release Date: January 10th 2023
Genre: Young Adult/Medieval Fiction

Blurb

16-year-old, Rhia Caddell, doesn’t know what’s worse—arranged marriages or high finance.

Now she’s stuck with both when her desperate father agrees to marry her to the oh-so-dainty Prince of Wales in an attempt at royal tax negotiations. As a farmer, Rhia prefers toiling in the earth over romance. Life in a fiefdom requires muscle, and what good is a man who can’t outlift her or bring a belligerent steer to the ground?

But now, the pressure has fallen onto her to whoo (or intimidate) her new, royal husband into erasing her village’s debt before the king’s final deadline comes due. Problem is, the prince has been given the same task—to sway his new wife, the mayor’s daughter, into forking over the gold and finally earning his father’s approval.

For Rhia, losing their new, delicate game would mean turning over the only life and home she’s ever known to the king. Winning, though, could mean giving up the fragile prince she’s tried so hard, and failed, not to love.

“Wow!! What a read!! … The twist and turns had my head and heart all over the place!!” ~Goodreads Review (Lynne G.)
“… absolutely beautiful and consuming.” ~Goodreads Review (G)
He bullied me.
He loved me.
He destroyed me.
I thought the worst day of my life would be when my parents told me that we were losing everything and moving to Cape Cove. I would be starting a new life, one without luxury. I would be starting my senior year not knowing anyone, instead of with friends I knew my entire life.
I was wrong.
The worst day came when I met Axel Hartly and he chose me to be his new game.
To survive Cape Cove I needed to be strong and fight.
That’s what I did.
I had to play his game. I thought I could play harder and win.
I was wrong.
I knew the only way to succeed would be to keep my heart locked away. I underestimated Axel and how easily he could draw me in as a moth to his flame.
He was going to burn me alive.

Title: Where Oceans Burn
Author: Casey L. Bond
Genre: YA Epic Fantasy

Cover Designer: Melissa Stevens/ The Illustrated Author Design Services
Blurb: The Blurb Doctor
Publication Date: Oct. 13th, 2022
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:
With these three virtues, we shall rise. With these three, we shall conquer.

Truth. Honor. Blood.

 

To my people, the sky-reigning Empyreans, Intention Day is sacred…

 

                                                                        Truth…

 

To me, it’s the day my carefully crafted lie crumbles and my truth gives way to my ruin. The intense power surging through my veins is revealed, immediately coveted by those eager to exploit me for what they deem a greater good. If they have their way, the future I long for will be ripped away. But I am a warrior born to fly. To fight. Not to be caged and controlled.

 

The great scale of the goddess Neera has tipped out of my favor. The pans teeter between weighty punishment and deadly opportunity. My choices? Capture my most formidable enemy before next Intention Day, or forfeit my wings.

 

                                                                        Honor…

 

But life’s loftiest plans are often a breath away from disaster, and tragedy strikes as unpredictably as a bolt of lightning. When I find myself at the mercy of my greatest enemy, the terror known as the Shark of the Sea, the monster who killed the person I loved most, I accept my fate. My death. But the Shark does not lash out in revenge for all I’ve done. He tells me his true name is Crest. And while he calls me a Scourge, he honors his orders to guard me.

 

                                                                     Blood…

 

Forced together, Crest reveals that the truth only exists in the place between our perspectives and shares his hope to garner peace before the land is further soaked with the blood of sky and sea. The longer I am among his kind, the more I wonder if he might be right. Could an alliance be the salvation of both our peoples?

 

I am Elira, great Scourge of the Sky.

He is Crest, cunning Shark of the Sea.

Together… we could be unstoppable.

Casey Bond lives on a rural farm in West Virginia with her husband and their two beautiful daughters. She writes phoenixes – gloriously flawed and morally gray characters that fiercely rise from the ashes of their circumstances. World building is one of her favorite hobbies, along with stamping metal jewelry, swimming, and enjoying the beauty of nature. She thinks thunderstorms are better than coffee and that watching a meteor shower is the closest thing to magic you might ever see. She’s a firm believer that every amazing book needs a world you want to wrap yourself in, a character you want to win, and a love you would fight for.

Casey is the award-winning author of When Wishes Bleed, Gravebriar, and House of Eclipses.

Title: Summer of Chloe
Series: Summers in Seaside Collection #7
Author: Cata Ree
Genre: Enemies to Lovers/Young Adult
Release Date: July 27, 2022
 
I’m finally finished with High School and most of the people in it. I have a few friends but I’m sick of being called names and feeling like an outcast.


Ok.. so.. I’m good at school, so..I work in a bookstore, so.. I love to read, and sure.. I can talk about books all day long, especially while helping someone find just the right book to read next.

Since when is being passionate a bad thing? Well, Clay Connelly sure seems to find fault in everything I do. To him I’m just “Nerd Girl”.

Since the day my mom and I moved here to Seaside, Oregon he seems to have made it his life’s mission to harass me and try getting under my skin. I am so done with that!

Despite my best efforts and against my own better judgement, my heart still pounds when he is near and I can’t seem to help wanting to kiss him and slap him at the same time. If that wasn’t confusing enough, his penetrating grey eyes dive straight into my soul. I can’t help but wonder what he sees there and why he wants to look in the first place.

After a bold and probably foolish move on my part, Clay is determined to haunt me and make this summer unforgettable.

Little did we both know, but this summer would indeed be unforgettable in every meaning of the word. Just not the way he had planned!

She grabs the worn copy from me and hands me a newer looking one, “You can borrow this one, if you’d like to read it. This is a classic and will always be my

favourite one. Until the day I find my own Mr. Darcy, everyone must live up to him.”

“Mr. Darcy, huh?” I say turning towards her, promises made to her mom fast forgotten, I take a step to close the gap between us. Changing our positions, I push her back to her bookshelf and place both my hands on each side of her head. My insides burn with need to get another taste of this delicious

creature in front of me.

Lifting one hand off it’s resting place, I run a finger down her cheek all the way to where her collarbone meets her neck, “Can Mr. Darcy do this?” I taunt, her pupils enlarge in response. 

Tilting my head, I decide to replace my finger with the tip of my tongue, “Does Mr. Darcy feel like this?” I tease, her breath hitches, chest rising and falling up against mine in a rapid speed. 

I place an open mouth kiss to her collarbone “Can Mr. Darcy make you shake with need?” I growl in her ear, earning myself a needy moan.

Her hands tangle in my hair, as she pulls me to herself making us one, “Mr. Darcy has nothing on the way you make me feel, Clay,” she says in a breathy way and crushes her lips to mine.

Blurb:

The Kings are powerful.

They’re ruthless.

And they own me.

When my mother dies of an overdose, I’m forced to live with an aunt that hates me. Her desire to stay close to the elite pushes me right into the domain of the Kings. Kieran, Heston, and Xavier.

These guys don’t just rule the high school, everyone seems to bow down to them. No body crosses them and lives to talk about it, or so I’ve heard. Their families are the richest in this city. In fact, they are so powerful that even the city authorities bend to their will.

They don’t trust me because of where I come from. My uncle was one of the founding families, along with their fathers, and he betrayed them. Now they believe that I am the enemy.

There’s an old saying, the truth will find you out. How true thatstatement is. My family’s secrets are revealed, and I discover that my entire life has been full of lies and deceit. Those secrets also have the power to take everything from me. But will this new revelation be enough to earn their trust, or will it destroy everything I hold dear?
