Happily ever after … at least I hope.

 

When it’s come to my friends and family, I’ve been willing to sacrifice just about anything to save them, but these last few months I’ve been sidelined from the fight—not anymore.

 

The time has come, and Abaddon is finally coming to collect what he was promised—and he is not alone. Those who I once thought were my allies, and others who I worried would stab me in the back have now partnered up with the demon to take what I hold most dear to my heart.

 

Some will be hurt, some will survive, and others will die in this battle to the finish.

 

Will we get the happily ever after we desire? Or will it all come to an end here?

Blurb:

What would you do if fear gripped you tight and refused to let go?

Would you cower in its clutches or stand and fight?

When Greenlife captured Amaya, I thought that was the worst of what was to come.

Turns out I was wrong. This is only just the beginning of the level of depravity that they have sunk to.

I’m desperate to utilise my new powers, to go and rescue her, but I wasn’t prepared for them to fight back, or the wickedness they seem to revel in.

But through all the heartache and fear, I am unbreakable. With my new friends and three men who will protect me at all costs, my determination is stronger than the enemies circling closer.

The war has just begun.

We will not be beaten.

Isabella lives near London in the UK with her husband, two children and two furbabies. She fell in love with reading at a young age, always getting lost in a book which still happens to this day.

Isabella loves nothing more to relax than having a nice cup of tea and watching cheesy reality T.V and gripping films.

When she isn’t busy writing, she can be found spending time and exploring new places with her family.

Blood is thicker than water.

 

With the bombshell that Ophelia dropped on the night of the mating ceremony, Mackenzie is struggling with her inner self. Everything she once believed her life would be, just got turned upside down—and not by choice.

 

Fae magic runs through her blood and the consequences are dire. The demon wants what Mackenzie has because of her blood and will stop at nothing until he gets it … even if he has to kill her in the process. But the question is, why does he want it so badly? And why is he killing so many innocent lycan in his quest?

 

To get these answers, Mackenzie will ally herself with those who once were her enemy. But she’s making a dangerous choice, because at any moment, they’re right on the sidelines ready to stab her in the back.

 

Her blood is the key. Can Kenz survive a battle against Abaddon? Or will the ones closest to her be the ones to take her down?

Title: Empty Threat
Author: Danny Bell
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

Book one of The Black Pages 

Elana Black has the power to make herself fictional. But when she decides to start saving all the people in books and TV shows who die just for the sake of advancing the plot, she quickly learns that she’s not the only one with her powers. 

All Elana wants to do is save people. But these others don’t want the stories to change, and they’ll do everything they can to stop her. 

If you had the power to change fate… to create a happy ending where there wasn’t one before… would you do it if it meant risking your own?

My name is Danny Bell. I want to tell stories and avoid writing author profiles. I read–when I should be interacting with people, I named my cat after a cat I liked in a book, I’m pretty sure I saw a ghost one time–though I’ll never admit it publicly, I’m too tall for the earth, and I’ve never eaten a vegetable. I lied about the vegetable part. Wait… is someone going to read this?

“The stairs, come on!” Olivia hissed back, grabbing my arm. We ran as silently as possible. When we got to the stairs, she peaked her head inside, gave a glance up and down, then motioned for me to follow. We made our way up a full floor before we heard movement above us. With no other choice, we ducked into the sixth floor, opening and closing the door as quietly as we could. No one was waiting for us, fortunately. Without waiting an extra second, Olivia dragged me into a small examination room. 

“All right. Okay. New floor. That’s something. We just need to figure out what we do now.” Olivia said pensively; I wasn’t sure if she was talking to herself or me. 

“Can we stop for a moment?” I demanded. “Where is all of this coming from?” 

“Well, I don’t want to die, and one of us had to do something!” she snapped back with a mirthless laugh. 

“I was going to figure something out!” I began to protest. I stopped, seeing how Olivia’s expression changed. 

“Are you serious? Have you seen yourself?” she asked. “You’re sweating. You’re literally shaking. I had to physically drag you away from danger. Look!” 

She spun me around towards the direction of a mirror. I couldn’t believe it; I was a portrait of panic. My left hand was actually shaking and wouldn’t stop. “I’m trying to keep us alive! I am not at all equipped to survive this, but we both can’t be petrified. I’m scared too, but whatever. Unless you’re either going to get it together, or get a new superpower, you just have to trust me.” 

I took a few breaths. I couldn’t let us die here, so yeah, it was time to make with my best superheroine impression. 

“Right. You’re right. I’m better,” I said with a couple of quick hops to release some of the tension. “You’re right. We got this.” 

“That’s fantastic because I have no idea what to do next,” Olivia replied with a sigh. 

“You know, my superiors seem to think you deserve a warning,” Bres interrupted over the PA system. “I don’t. I don’t think there’s a damn thing any of us can say to get you to stop really, so why bother? You insist on leaving a bloody mess everywhere you go. Hell, you’ve already figured out the Cruz girl, so you’re not likely to stop, are you?” 

“What he’s talking about?” Olivia asked. 

“No clue,” I answered. “He’s probably just trying to get under our skin, right?” 

“Right.” 

“I have a plan, but it’s desperate and stupid.” And largely based on television because I’ve never really been in this situation before. 

“I’ll take it,” Olivia replied. 

“This is pure speculation, but I think the higher up we go, the more spread out they are. There are multiple ways up to the higher floors, and they’re probably sending people up, but they’re going to be gathered on the ground since that’s the only feasible way out. We’re not getting out the front, but if we can get to the roof we might just be able to, I don’t know, flag someone down or something. Or just lock everyone inside and wait until they leave or maybe they’ll just, I don’t know, burn down the hospital themselves.” 

“The stairs are still blocked, how do we make it there in the first place?” Olivia asked. 

“This is the dumb part,” I continued. “We send the elevator down to the first floor. There’s like, a thirteen percent chance that they bite. Before you ask how I came up with that number, don’t. This probably isn’t going to work, and I’m going to get us killed.” 

“I’m not scared at all,” Olivia said, about as sarcastically as I’ve ever heard her. 

I shrugged. “Let’s do it.” 

As we left the room, Bres spoke again, and it took everything within me not to yell at him to shut the hell up. 

“You know, when people talk about forces bigger than them, they often speak of things outside of their control like shadowy government agents or earthquakes, or God, or any number of other stupid things they could have just planned for.” 

I hit the button on the elevator. I could hear the movement in the staircase. It might have been working. 

“And while you indeed have been messing with forces much bigger than yourself, something I’d love to make you pay for; I want you to be assured that those are not the forces you need to be worried about.” 

We stood still, quietly, until the footsteps faded away. I threw open the door and we dashed up the last flight of stairs to the small ladder leading to the roof. The hatch was even unlocked, our luck was actually picking up. 

“The only force you should worry about, the one who decides if you live or not, is me. And Elana, I am so much bigger than you.” 

As I pushed the hatch open, a gale force wind sent me hard to the ground, taking Olivia with me and, ironically, knocking the wind out of both of us. I found it oddly funny for half a moment, but as I looked up, the wild-haired silhouette framed by the sunlight pouring in through the hatch removed any humor. 

“The smaller they are, the harder they fall, eh?” Bres gloated into a wireless microphone, his voice still echoing from the PA. He floated down to the ground somehow, as if he had always been standing in mid-air, but there was no time to be shocked by this. “Good enough, all. Go home; I’ll handle the rest.” 

Olivia was still down, but I tried to get to my feet, my legs shaky; maybe from the shock, maybe from the fall, I don’t know. The instant I was upright, Bres sharply pointed a finger in my direction. Immediately, something I couldn’t see slammed into my stomach, harder than I could ever remember being hit. I didn’t even make a noise as I doubled over; one just wouldn’t come out of me. 

“You’ve got to learn, Ms. Black, that your actions have consequences. The world will always demand balance. That’s the job it’s given me.” 

As he said that, a sickly red glow began crawling up his fingers, growing brighter, extending further from his skin with each subtle flick of his hand. A sick grin spread over his face as he gestured at Olivia, releasing a fireball towards her. 

Even before the flame left his hand, I was on my feet again. I’ll never know where I found the energy to move as fast as I did, or remember what I screamed as I moved, but I somehow threw myself between the fire and Olivia, squeezing my eyes shut in the process. Through my closed eyelids, I saw a bright flash of blue and red competing with each other, followed by brilliant black and then… nothing? No burning, for a moment not even any sound. 

I opened my eyes and blinked rapidly as they adjusted to the light again. In front of me stood a bright shimmering half sphere crackling with sparks, like a curved wall of electricity. Around us, the stairwell had been scorched. Bres for his part looked amused. I remembered to breathe, and then the half sphere evaporated. 

“Nice,” Bres said flatly. Then, with a casual wave of his hand, he excitedly said, “Let’s see you do it again!”

Blurb:
If her love life is going down in flames, she might as well spark a revolution.
Finding out on your sixteenth birthday you’re a shape-shifting dragon is tough to swallow. Being hauled off to an elite boarding school is enough to choke on.
Since Bryn is the only crossbreed at the Institute for Excellence, all eyes are on her, but it’s a particular black dragon, Zavien, who catches her attention.
Zavien is tired of the Council’s rules. Segregated clans, being told who to love, and close-minded leaders make freedom of choice almost impossible. The new girl with the striped hair is a breath of fresh air, and with Bryn’s help, they may be able to change the rules.

At the Institute, old grudges, new crushes, and death threats are all part of a normal day for Bryn. She’ll need to learn to control her dragon powers if she wants to make it through her first year at school. But even focusing on staying alive is difficult when you’re falling for someone you can’t have.
