A hard-earned shield.

Days before she is to take her place as a shield maiden, like her mother before her, two deaths alter the course of Liv’s future. One belonged to a witch who called her by name, the other a chieftain from the north. Vengeance for the chieftain’s death comes in a wild fury that burns her village and slaughters her family. Left for dead, Liv pleads to Skuld – norn and weaver of the future – to spare her. A deal is struck that will endow her with the dark magic needed to claim her vengeance. But this power comes at an unfathomable price… 

Ink made from the ashes of loved ones. 

After his home is attacked, Calder races to warn neighboring villages of the threat. Little does he know he’s traveling into the path of fate that will lead him straight to Liv. Despite being broken, angry, and overwhelmed by power she cannot contain, it’s her willingness to defend others that draws Calder to her. 

Armor forged from the bones of those she held dear. 

Together, Liv and Calder discover they are two sides of the same sharpened blade. Rising from the heartache and fury in their pasts, they see a future together worth fighting for. With their strengths and hearts combined, can they become a force powerful enough to defeat the fleet of darkness coming for them? Or will the thread of fate that binds them unravel?

Author: Chris Cannon
Genre: YA RomCom
Narrator: Tim Paige & Penelope Rose
Audio Producer: The Audio Flow, LLC
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

This Entangled Teen Crush book contains multiple PDAs, after-school detentions, and gambling on the side. Warning: betting on a boyfriend is bad for your health. 

Zoe Cain knows that Grant Evertide is way out of her league. So naturally, she kisses him. Out of spite. Not only is Grant her brother’s number-one nemesis, but he has zero interest in being tied down to one girl. She’s shocked—and secretly thrilled—when they start spending more time together. 

Zoe’s brother claims Grant is trying to make her his “Ringer,” an oh-so-charming tradition where a popular guy dates a non-popular girl until he hooks up with her, then dumps her. Zoe threatens to neuter Grant with hedge clippers if he’s lying but Grant swears he isn’t trying to trick her. Still, that doesn’t mean Grant is the commitment type—even if winning a bet is on the line. 

Each book in the Boyfriend Chronicles series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Welcome to Summervale…

One of the USA’s top vacation spots. Situated in Upstate New York. It’s a sunny coastal town. Population…

Oh, who cares.

The tourism ads paint Summervale NY as the perfect, picturesque town. It’s the ideal location to have spring break in, or retire at.

But I know the truth.

 

17 year old Darcie Bell Ryder thought life would be different on the other side of the tracks. In this town, you are judged on by what side of the river you live on.

She was born a ‘have not’, but due to her father’s new social status and job, she moves into the rich neighbourhood called The Circle, and becomes a ‘have’.

In the Circle, she is introduced to the other kids at the town’s annual back to school bonfire on the beach.

Here she meets the handsome, and totally out her league, Dane O’Connell.

Even though they are from the opposite sides of the river, they share a connection they both can’t deny.

But when the body of a teenage girl turns up dead on the shore, the mystery to her death will either bring the teens closer together…

 or tear them further apart.

 

In the first instalment of a new YA contemporary mystery series from L.L. Hunter, there are secrets a plenty in Summervale, but only some will surface. The rest will be taken to the grave.
