Title: Defiant Little Love
Series: Lake State University #9
Author: Rachael Brownell
Genre: Fake Enemies to Lovers Romance/College Romance
Release Date: January 12, 2023
 
There really is a fine line between love and hate. Friends and enemies.

Max Palmer is an a-hole.
And I’m in love with him. I’m pretty sure I have been since the day we met.
I’ve tried to quit him. Multiple times. But he’s an addiction that refuses to be ignored. Which is why one minute we’re together, colliding with hurricane force, and the next we’re pushing each other away, pretending not to like each other. Fighting the feelings that are bubbling just beneath the surface.
For years we’ve been able to hide our secret love affair from everyone.
I’m tired of lying to myself about the way I feel.
Of hiding the truth from the people that matter most to me. Even if I know they won’t approve. Even if my confession may destroy friendships in the process.
I’m also pissed off because he started dating one of my sisters. The same night I was ready to confess my feelings for him.
If he was looking to get a rise out of me, it worked.
I’ve wasted years with him. Lying and pretending I was happily single, focused on school so no one would suspect otherwise.
And how does he repay me?
By shoving his new relationship in my face.
Well, screw him. I’m not wasting another minute of my time crying over a man who was never really mine to begin with.
If he wants to play games, it’s on.
Because I don’t plan to lose my heart to Max Palmer.

Blurb:

New Orleans is a city known for its paranormal history—and it’s the place Emma Rose Crane, AKA Mattie Hathaway, has come home to.

 
This is a chance for her to start over. In New Orleans, she’s welcome, and her abilities to see ghosts isn’t so freaky.
 
But the whole thing would be a lot easier if she weren’t faced with a family she barely knows and starting college, all while dealing with the loss of someone she loved.
 
Can she really escape her past and be semi-normal? Even with her sister Mary and best friend Eric by her side, it’s going to be a wild ride once she agrees to help Mary’s new friends investigate a “haunted” house.
 
The house’s new occupants are terrified, and the ghost seems to be attacking their little girl, leaving everyone desperate for answers. Emma isn’t sure what to think when she discovers Dr. Lawrence Olivet was also invited to investigate.
 
Will her gifts be enough to save the family that is currently being stalked in their own home?  And when some of her own family’s long-kept secrets come to light, will her fresh start be over before it even begins?
 
 
 

 

 

 
So who am I?



 
Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.
 
Now, I live in a small town in West Virginia where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.
 
I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.

Blurb:

 
A crooked crown which belonged to a prince. A prince who very well might become king someday. But he wasn’t my prince. Or wasn’t supposed to be. Yet now he was.

Jorah Demir has done the unthinkable, she has switched Assemblages. During an attempt to flee, Prince Krewan saved her from being apprehended by the king’s guards. But there is a catch. The king believes her relationship with Prince Krewan to be real. Now they must sell their ruse like Jorah’s life depends upon it. Because it does—she is surrounded by Enchanted at every turn.

With the king’s guards appearing at all hours of the day, Jorah and Krew are forced to uphold the ruse even behind closed doors. And when Jorah’s blood causes a bloom in the dead forest, it sends them chasing down answers together.

As the Assemblages continue and the lines between their budding friendship and their ruse blur, Jorah will have to make a tough decision. Can she leave the castle knowing the danger the princes must face? And with her newfound ability to heal the forest, will she ever be safe from the king again?

Blurb

Some women in Wylan had dreamt of this day. Some pined and planned for it their entire lives.

Chosen for the Assemblages of Consorts, Jorah Demir will have the opportunity to vie for the twin crown princes’ affections. Though no one knows which prince will eventually rule, they are two of the most powerful Enchanted in all the kingdom.

Not only is a chance for a crown at stake, but also a small drop of the royal bloodline’s magic. Jorah isn’t interested in either. Both princes are Enchanted, the very type of people responsible for her father’s murder.

From the lowest level of the kingdom and without magic, she is forced to go above the walls of Wylan and into the castle itself. She only has one goal: to avoid the crown princes and not, under any circumstances, form an attachment with either one of them.

Surrounded by Enchanted at every turn, she soon learns not all are as evil as she assumed. And when the king’s magic doesn’t affect her, everything Jorah thought she knew is called into question.

Hated for her beauty… hunted for her heart.
 
Adelaide Snow has lived her whole life thinking she’s ordinary… but the startling truth has been locked away in her mind. Buried beneath an avalanche of lies.
 
The week before her twenty-first birthday, she wakes up in a mysterious castle that only exists in her dreams… or so she thought.
 
It’s nothing like the fairytales she read as a child. No charming prince, coming to save the day.
 
Only a brooding huntsman with a shattered moral compass.
 
A stranger to the kingdom, and an enemy to the crown, Adelaide has two choices— wake herself from this illusion or disappear into the dark winter woods alone.
 
The Black Forest can’t compare to the darkness lurking inside the palace walls.
 
Because the Queen has demanded her fragile heart… But the huntsman wants it for himself.

Harlow

When I broke my arm in fifth grade, the doctor told my parents and me that it would grow a callous, a protective shield, which would make it stronger than ever before. I’m like that bone. I won’t break. I’ve already been broken, and I’m stronger for it. I’ve grieved for my brother. I’ve hated myself. I have healed.

Bring it on, Voclain Academy.

Ian

I’ve ruled these grounds for three long years. I should have been expelled on at least six separate occasions, and those are just the ones I remember between the booze and the blackouts. I was a king known for a quick fuse and an even quicker right hook. 

But I promised Harlow I would holster my fists senior year. Some of my classmates bring out the worst in me though and keeping that promise is going to be harder than I thought. She’s the only tether on my wrath. Pull that tether too tight, and it will snap. Then Hell will unleash on all of us. 

Watch your back, Voclain. 

 

Note to listeners: This book contains bullying, foul language, high heat content, and drug and alcohol use, which some listeners may find triggering. Due to the above, it is intended for a mature audience.

I kissed her and she ran.
She was the most beautiful girl I’d ever seen and the way she was looking at me that night, the electric charge between us, had my jeans feeling snug the entire show. When I found her standing alone between sets, I couldn’t help but approach her.
It wasn’t my intention to kiss her. I should have gotten to know her first. Asked her more than her name. But after watching her while I sang my heart out, I wasn’t thinking straight.
That was more than three years ago. When we were both naïve freshmen.
I’ve been watching her ever since. From afar. Like a crazy stalker. (Not my proudest admission.)
She’s even more beautiful than the first time I laid eyes on her. So when I walk into the rec center and find her waiting for me, alone, with lust in her eyes, I pounce. Again. Like an idiot.
Only this time, I don’t feel an ounce of regret because I don’t plan on letting her run away from me again. She’s been my inspiration for years and it’s about damn time she figured it out.
There’s only one way I can do that… I need to sing her the song I wrote about that night.
About her.
I could try to slowly weasel my way into her heart the way she has mine over the years, but I’m sick of wasting time. I want her to be mine today.
Tomorrow.
Forever.
Because the truth is… I’ve been hers since that very first night.
Releasing September 8, 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.

~Amazon Reviewer
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to meet a stranger and act on your impulses?
My name is Remington Edwards, and I did just that. It was a chance encounter that changed everything…
I’d finally landed my dream job with a top advertising company. I was collaborating with an award-winning team, and I couldn’t believe my luck.
And then I met my boss.
Except we’d met before…
He was the stranger I had spent the last three months obsessed with.
He acts like he doesn’t remember me but, I can’t let him forget. As I descend further into his world the more, I want from him.
Willa Woods, writes about over the top alphas and the woman they fall for. She wrote her first short story when she was in the sixth grade. Her first alpha was her dog, Bruiser.

When she’s not writing, she is binging the latest show on Hulu or Netflix. She is an avid gardener and loves to hang out on her back deck watching all the birds and bees, (see what I did there) enjoying all the plants and flowers she has grown. Her and her husband love to go to stock car races. This is her first novel. She hopes you will enjoy reading it as much as she did writing it.
